The New York Times explains just one example of how China’s internet censorship regime works in reality:
|What Australia owes each and every asylum seeker
One of Australia’s leading human rights lawyers, Julian Burnside, skewers anybody who willfully misrepresents the flow of refugees into the country:
|As long as Israel barely allows shoes into Gaza, expect outrage to grow
Oh, the generosity:
Here’s the latest Israeli commentator to tell America to keep its annual aid; we’ll cope just fine. Dream on, sunshine – without Washington protecting you on the global stage, you wouldn’t last more than a few months. It’s called being a client state.
A timely piece in the Guardian by Israeli Aluf Benn that explains the growing alienation of the Arabs and ultra-Orthodox in Israel (the former far more, of course) and the “threat” to the country’s future:

Dahr Jamail reminds us that American violence against Iraqis isn’t an abberation; it’s part of the rules of engagement:
|The supposed paper of record recognises Arabs can also be peaceful
The New York Times issues a typically patronising article headline (and implies that usually, of course, Arabs are so violent):
|Stealing Palestinian money the old fashioned way
A democracy does not act this way:
