Selected Articles: Trump Is Israel’s “Useful Idiot”

Dear Readers,

More than ever, Global Research needs your support. Our task as an independent media is to “Battle the Lie”.

“Lying” in mainstream journalism has become the “new normal”: mainstream journalists are pressured to comply. Some journalists refuse.

Lies, distortions and omissions are part of a multibillion dollar propaganda operation which sustains the “war narrative”.

While “Truth” is a powerful instrument, “the Lie” is generously funded by the lobby groups and corporate charities. And that is why we need the support of our readers.

When the Lie becomes the Truth, there is no turning backwards. 

Support Global Research.

Trump Is Israel’s “Useful Idiot”

By Philip Giraldi, July 16, 2018

The claim made by many neoconservatives that Israel and the United States are partners in the Middle East because their strategic interests are identical is belied by the fact that the Israelis are more than willing to ignore Washington when its suits them to do so. The claim of identical interests has always been false, promoted by the Zionist media and an intensively lobbied Congress to make the lopsided relationship with an essentially racist and apartheid regime more palatable to the American public, but, in wake of the slaughter in Gaza and pending legislation in the Knesset empowering Israeli communities to ban non-Jewish residents, it completely lacks any credibility.

History, The Red Giant: Rise and Fall of the USSR

By Julien Paolantoni, July 16, 2018

The core theory of Soviet foreign policy was set forth in Lenin’s Decree on Peace, adopted by the Second Congress of Soviets in November 1917. It asserts the dual nature of the USSR’s foreign policy, which intends to be a mix of both ‘proletarian internationalism’ and ‘peaceful coexistence’. 

Chaos at the NATO Summit Benefits Eurasian Integration

By Federico Pieraccini, July 16, 2018

The meeting of the NATO countries in Brussels highlighted the apparent intentions of the US president towards his allies and the Atlantic organization. Trump’s strategy is to oblige the European countries to halt energy imports from Moscow and replace them with liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the US at a price that is obviously not cheap. The gas would come from the US by ship, entailing huge logistical costs that are not the case with regard to physical pipelines between Europe and Ru

‘You Shall Not Pass’: Why Scotland Stands Against Trump

By Richard Leonard, July 16, 2018

We stand here today to protest against the visit of the 45th President of the United States of America.

And so we are setting out before the world all of those things that we are against.

And all of the reasons that bring us on to the streets to protest:

His misogyny. His islamophobia: and as long as there is a travel ban to America on the grounds of religious intolerance.

Europe’s Central Bank (ECB) Failures: From 1999 Origins to 2017

By Dr. Jack Rasmus, July 16, 2018

The European Central Bank, ECB, is at the heart of the failure to stabilize Europe’s economy since the 2008 global crisis. It is a central element as well in the institutional arrangement since the creation of the Euro that has allowed northern Europe economies and banks, especially Germany, to skew economic growth for itself at the expense of the rest of most of the European periphery, especially its southern tier.

Ireland’s Decision to Advance Boycott Bill Could be the Tipping Point for Justice for Palestine

By Prof. Kamel Hawwash, July 16, 2018

Palestinians in Gaza continue to march to the fence separating them from their occupiers to demand that they be allowed to return peacefully to their homes on the other side. Their peaceful endeavour has been met with brutal force resulting in over 130 killed mostly by Israeli snipers and over 10,000 injured with some sustaining horrendous injuries and others losing limbs.
