Trump is using the same framework for understanding terrorism to justify his Muslim ban and immigration policy that Netanyahu and Israel have exploited to justify half a century of occupation. By Naomi Dann Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will visit with President Trump at the White House this week. It will be a true meeting of minds. Both leaders are bombastic and rely on false claims, fear-mongering, and stereotypes to pursue discriminatory, racist, and violent policies.

Saturday 17 December 2016 1 Tony Abbott must be having the greatest dummy spit of all time. Now he is on about employment, or should I say the illusion that there are so many jobs that people are choosing to just not work. The last time I looked it up there were 19 applicants for…

Some right-wing media figures and outlets are attempting to twist and confuse the term “fake news” — a specific phenomenon in which information is clearly and demonstrably fabricated, then packaged and distributed to appear as a legitimate source of news — to attack outlets they disagree with.
