No to Endless War

On Feb. 11, President Obama sent Congress a proposed joint resolution to Authorize the Use of Military Force (AUMF), which would authorize and extend military action against ISIS for the next three years. The Syracuse Peace Council calls on Congress to reject this new AUMF, rescind the 2001 AUMF, and stop an “endless” war on the people of the Middle East.

Drones and the Gaza Goldfish Bowl

From the

by Ed Kinane

In their coverage of this summer’s Israeli invasion of Gaza, the New York Times and many other mainstream media would have us believe that that bully, Gaza, is hitting poor Israel below the belt. Their narrative ignores key realities:

• Israel, a colonial settler state much like former apartheid South Africa, is the nuclear-armed regional superpower. It has one of the world’s mightiest militaries, thanks in part to three billion dollars in US military aid it receives annually.

A Jewish Woman Working for Peace in Israel/Palestine

From the

by Mara Sapon-Shevin

Several weeks ago, as I stood with a sign as part of a vigil against the Israeli actions in Gaza, a woman passing by rolled down her window and gave me a huge thumbs-up. Moments later, she had parked her car and came running across the Erie/Genesee triangle where we stood to introduce herself as a Palestinian woman. We embraced and I introduced her to some of the other protesters, including another woman from Palestine. She cried and said, “I didn’t know there were people here that cared about this.”
