The truth is that the Palestinians could have had their own state at any time in the past 67 years. They were offered one in 1947 and refused, preferring to make war on Israel.

Iran Pushes for Saudi Isolation
Two red flag events in the Persian Gulf this week attested to Tehran’s confidence that it has escaped the threat of a military clash with the US and Israel over its nuclear program – certainly in the Persian Gulf. By the same token, Iran is no longer threatening to block the Straits of Hormuz to Gulf oil exports in reprisal for this attack.
One of those events, as noted by DEBKAfile’s military and Gulf sources, is the rapid detente between Tehran and the United Arab Emirates. Tuesday, Dec. 10, unnamed Gulf officials announced that Iran and the UAE were More >

THE Irish government has apologised after a judicial review found Irish police colluded with the IRA in the murders of two Northern Ireland police officers in 1989.
Chief Superintendent Harry Breen and Superintendent Bob Buchanan were shot dead by members of the Provisional Irish Republican Army (IRA) shortly after returning to Northern Ireland following a meeting with Irish police in Dundalk on March 20, 1989.
“Whilst Judge Smithwick does not find direct evidence of collusion in the killings, he concludes, on the balance of probabilities that collusion did occur,” said Eamon Gilmore, minister for foreign affairs.

Back in the summer of 2008, the Associated Press ran a story by Alan Fram and Eileen Putnam with the headline, “Everything seemingly is spinning out of control.”
The article said “Everything,” but it wasn’t about the whole world so much as a view of the world through the eyes of the mainstream American press. Their examples illustrate that point of view. They wrote, “Midwestern levees are bursting. Polar bears are adrift. Gas prices are skyrocketing. Home values are abysmal. Air fares, college tuition and health care border on unaffordable.

Jang Song-thaek was probably sacked as vice-chairman of the National Defence Commission and as a department head of the ruling Workers’ Party, an MP Jung Cheong-rae said, citing a senior South Korean official in its National Intelligence Service (NIS).
Analysts who watch the North’s power structure say Mr Jang’s removal would not have been possible without the approval of the third Kim to rule in the family dynasty.
The move is likely to tip the balance in favour of the top political operative for the army, Choe Ryong-hae, which could mean a symbolic victory for the 1.2 million-strong military. Mr Choe, director More >
