In Rio de Janeiro there are three Osama Bin Laden themed bars. (Gawker)

In a closed door meeting on Friday, Secretary of State John Kerry warned that Israel was at risk of becoming “an apartheid state” if the current round of talks do not continue.  Such an assessment echoes a long history of anti-zionist activists comparing Israel to apartheid South Africa represents the growing potency of criticisms of Zionism that have centered around similarities between South Africa and Israel.

Reading up on current conversations about global political economy one recent book has come to the fore:  Thomas Piketty’s critique of capitalism, called ‘Capital in the Twenty-First Century‘ rings Marxist, but defends democratic reforms as an effort of the people and has been making waves in many circles.  (AJA) Media likes to talk about media being media in the media industry.  To hell with this industry!

      @Anonymous I completely agree–I think Kerry’s comments are well founded, and Bwog’s sentiment reeks of anti-Palestinian discourse.

      @Julia Hi Anonymous, our apologies. Bwog is not endorsing or denying this view of things, simply stating that it is an opinion that exists, and now that it has been echoed by a world leader, is definitely “growing [in] potency.” We regret the original wording, and have updated the piece to reflect the change in tone.

    So from what I can tell, Bwog is subscribing to this bullshit. Good job CU students on failing what balanced journalism is supposed to be.
