Hip Hop artist, activist and independent journalist Marcel Cartier teams up with the people’s producer Agent of Change releasing a part 3 of their Hands Off Syria tracks this time addressing US intentions in bombing ISIS targets in Syria.

They argue that the bombing of ISIS is being used as a pretext to eventually bring down or target the Syrian government.

In the description for the video Marcel writes:

“Let’s not be confused by Obama’s assertion that ISIS is the third largest threat to humanity (after Ebola and Russia, apparently). Granted, ISIS very much is a threat to the resistant peoples of the region, but one that the the Syrian state — in alliance with Hezbollah and Iran — has been relentlessly fighting against for the past three plus years while all the countries in the coalition airstrikes have helped to foster and facilitate ISIS’ growth.

After a series of failures to bring the government of Bashar al-Assad’s Ba’ath Party to its knees through both proxy and direct means (including funding of rebel groups and the chemical weapons propaganda [YouTube video evidence] last year in the hope of launching airstrikes on government targets [which could have created somewhat of a "Libyan scenario" of bombing the rebels a path to victory]), the most sellable option now (despite it still being absurd to anyone really paying attention) is that the boogey-man in the form of the Islamic State has to be combated, and hence, Syria must be bombed.

It is no coincidence that the decision to bomb targets in Syria has been paired with the announcement that the coalition will train 5,000 “moderate” rebels at bases in Saudi Arabia.”

Eid Mubarak to all those celebrating today.

Unfortunately, for far too many Palestinian children, this occasion is being marked with them in hospitals recovering from injuries suffered in Israel’s genocidal bombing campaign.

As a result, the grassroots organization Existence Is Resistance is taking up donations to help these children receive a little bit of cheer and happiness.

As a small bit, all the proceeds from the sale of this song [see download link for the song in video description] will go towards this very important project.

Please consider paying the small fee of $0.69 to help this cause.

Rap artist French Montana and Waka Flocka Flame used social media to speak out in support of Palestine.

Both posted pictures of Palestine and the Palestinian flag. Waka Flocka even asked why his government the United States is supporting the suffering of Palestine.

The new Israeli attack on the Gaza Strip has already taken the lives of innocent men, women and children and is still continuing. Israel has bombed civilian homes, schools, medical centers, houses of worship, and anything else they choose to destroy.

It has led to some unexpected voices speaking out. Yesterday NBA player Dwight Howard tweeted #FreePalestine to over 5 million of his twitter followers before deleting it after facing pressure from racist supporters of Israel. People should be able to say they support the plight of Palestine without having to fear a Zionist witch hunt and silencing campaign.
