UN ASSEMBLY HEAD HAILED FOR SLAMMING ISRAEL 
By Thalif Deen, The Electronic Intifada, 3 December 2008 

UNITED NATIONS (IPS) - The president of the United Nations
General Assembly, Father Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann,
dropped a political bombshell last week when he lashed out
at Israel for its repressive actions in the Occupied
Palestinian Territories, including the recent blockade of
humanitarian aid to Gaza. "What is being done to the
Palestinian people seems to me to be a version of the
hideous policy of apartheid," he told delegates, during a
meeting commemorating the "International Day of Solidarity
with the Palestinian People."

PALESTINE : OPINION/EDITORIAL:

WILL PALESTINIANS HIT HILLARY'S GLASS CEILING? 
By Dr. Marcy Newman, The Electronic Intifada, 2 December 2008 

It is difficult to recall a US secretary of state who
embodied the ideals of the position: the promotion of
dialogue and privileging of diplomacy. Unfortunately, US
President-elect Barack Obama's nominee, Hillary Clinton,
is not likely to restore these ideals to the office.
Clinton has long championed military action against the
former Yugoslavia, Iraq and has promised to "obliterate"
Iran if the state launched a nuclear strike against
Israel. Dr. Marcy Newman comments for The Electronic
Intifada.
