US-Israel's brutal war backfires - Green Left Weekly #680, August 23, 2006

Submitted by Webmaster on Thu, 24/08/2006 - 18:39

After July 12, Israel launched several large-scale troop `incursions'
into Lebanon, leading to fierce fighting with well-entrenched Hezbollah
guerrillas in the area. Israel's aim was to use its ground forces and
the brutal bombing campaign of its air force to terrorise the
Lebanese nation into turning against Hezbollah. This has backfired.

AUSTRALIA: 'Electing the Labor Party is not enough'
http://www.greenleft.org.au/back/2006/680/680p24.htm

``After 10 years of a right-wing government and extreme anti-worker laws
we are at an important juncture in history. The question for all of us
is, which way forward? On the one hand there's the proposition that we
just campaign to elect a federal Labor government, and that will
supposedly change the industrial relations laws. The other proposition
is that we need a multi-faceted campaign that includes industrial action
to force back the Howard government?s agenda.'' [Full article]
