The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine denounced the new “US-Israel Enhanced Security Cooperation Act” signed by US President Barack Obama, which seeks to strengthen military and security cooperation between the U.S. and the occupation state. The bill specifically and comprehensively notes U.S. goals for Israeli military supremacy in the region, calling the U.S. government to secure Israeli “qualitative superiority.” This new bill, once again a recognition of the U.S. strategic alliance with Israel, was given to the racist settler regime of Netanyahu in the month of Ramadan, as it escalates its aggression, settlements and siege, as well as its violation of Arab Muslim and Christian holy sites. This law demonstrates once again the utter contempt of U.S. imperialism for Palestinian blood, Palestinian plundered land, displaced people, and denied rights, and utter disregard for the Arab and Muslim nations.
The Popular Front demanded that the official silence, complicity and encouragement of Israeli crimes be broken at nationa, Arab and Islamic, and international levels, in order to challenge the U.S./Israeli war on our people and demand our inalienable national rights to return, self-determination and independence.

The following is a report from the British bourgeois press which outlines the supposed merger of the Real Irish Republican Army (Real IRA/RIRA) with several smaller dissident physical force Republican groups in order to create a “new” IRA. Given its source we here at The Speed of Dreams will take it with a grain of salt until something closer to the source emerges. Further, posting this is not an endorsement of the Real IRA, the “new IRA” or the Continuity IRA (who have thus far been left out of the merger). Rather the line of TSoD tends to reflect that of the Irish Republican Socialist Movement.
Three of the four main dissident republican terror groups in Northern Ireland are to merge and reclaim the banner of the IRA, in an escalation of attempts to de-stabilise power sharing.
The Real IRA has been joined by Republican Action Against Drugs, which has been running a violent vigilante campaign in Derry, and a coalition of independent armed republican groups – leaving only the Continuity IRA outside the new group. Read the rest of this entry
Americans are horrified about the chaotic, horrific, tumultuous and bloody mass murders in the movie theatre showing “Dark Night Rises”. Yet they live unconcerned over the top of our graves. This hemisphere is soaked in our people’s blood, all killed by psychotic mass murderers.
Aurora is 100 miles from the site of the Sand Creek massacre, November 29, 1864. Old Denver families were behind this mass murder of Cheyenne and Arapaho men, women and children.
In the spring of 1864 the Cheyenne and Arapaho were ready for peace. They met with US Officers, Evans and Chivington, at Camp Weld outside of Denver. No treaties were signed. The Indians were offered a sanctuary at Fort Lyon. Black Kettle and over 500 Cheyenne and Arapaho travelled south to set up camp on Sand Creek, near Eads, the town later built on top of the massacre site. Some dissenters headed north to join the Sioux.
General Samuel Curtis sent a telegram, “I want no peace till the Indians suffer more”. 700 Cavalry volunteers called “100 Dazers”, assembled in Denver. The camps of Chief Black Kettle, White Antelope, Left Hand and others, lay in the valley before them. Chivington, with mostly drunken troops, headed to Sand Creek with 4 Howitzers.
