Summer Fundraising Drive Starts Today!

Help Us Tell the Truth About Israel’s War of Aggression…
Because Nobody Else Will!

As Israeli warplanes bomb Lebanese civilians, killing hundreds, the silence of the liberals is deafening – and appalling. Who will speak up for the victims of this immoral and dangerous war? We at are virtually alone in raising our voices in protest.

Congress passes a resolution that is almost unanimous, supporting the slaughter and refusing to criticize the inhuman tactics of the IDF. Our politicians, Democrats as well as Republicans, fall in lockstep behind the Israel lobby, and the president of the United States is actually egging on the aggressors, lending what is left of his moral authority to the massacre.

It’s outrageous – and the coverage of the war in the "mainstream" media reflects this pro-Israel bias. Arab lives, in their view, are just not worth the trouble of depicting the ugly truth – and so they refuse to air "disturbing images." Disturbing, that is, to Israel’s amen corner.

We at operate under no such restrictions: we don't answer to any lobby, and we’re committed to showing you the unvarnished facts. That’s what makes us such a valuable resource – one that you can’t afford to be without.

You will be without it, however, if we don’t make our quarterly fundraising goal of $60,000. No, it isn’t much – we run a tight ship. But we need our readers – yes, that means YOU – to come through for us. We’ll be fundraising all week – and you can help by making your 100-percent tax-deductible donation today.

60,000 is what is takes to keep running for the next quarter. Please help.
