Is It Palestine’s Turn?
By Samer Araabi
The Palestinian people — and the rest of the world — have begun to realize that even an iron fist can only maintain its grip for so long. And yet, despite the widespread anger that led to the fall of the Mubarak regime in Egypt, Western powers are busily building its counterpart in the West Bank. Palestinian anger has become larger and more coordinated than many expected, and its “Mubarak moment” may be very close at hand. If the Arab revolutions empower Palestinians to build a mass movement for independence, and if the new Arab governments push Israel’s neighbors to play a more active role in the Palestinian struggle, then Israeli regional hegemony could be significantly compromised.

Michael Rubin’s Private Jihad
By Ali Gharib and Eli Clifton
In two recent entries on the blog of the neoconservative flagship magazine Commentary, Michael Rubin attacked a number of journalists and organizations for making use of Right Web profiles. Despite calling for a congressional investigation into PBS’s linking to Right Web profiles, Rubin fails to show how any of the profiles are “fake” or “conspiracy-riddled.” (Lobelog) Read article.
Hannah, a political pundit and former Dick Cheney advisor closely associated with the hawkish “pro-Israel” lobby, is now a senior fellow at the neoconservative Foundation for Defense of Democracies.
In March 2011, with the United States engaged in several military conflicts across the Greater Middle East, Freedom House and the Progressive Policy Institute launched the Iran Strategy Task Force to push the Obama administration to aggressively pursue democratic change in Iran.

ALSO NEW ON RIGHT WEB
Despite opposition from the Obama administration and the apparent ambivalence on the part of Israel’s right-wing government, neoconservatives are pushing to have Syrian President Bashar al-Assad be the next domino to fall in the "Arab Spring.”
Does President Obama’s cautious, limited approach to intervention in Libya augur a new U.S. role in world affairs?
As a Canadian I have found Right Web to be very useful and have passed it on to others of like-minded interests. I find that to have a request for Congress to investigate Frontline is really unwarranted and seems like a reverse smear campaign on their part — not to mention that shows like Frontline on PBS are at the forefront of the U.S. budget axe.
I wish you had more on Canadian corporate or individuals who have a vested interest in war mongering. Please know there are many Canadians who support your efforts. I am a person on disability pension so it is almost impossible for me to donate very much, so I spread the word as far and wide as I can.
Thank you for the hard work and research you do, it is vital now more than ever for the sake of democracy.
