Killing spree

Latest News

We all live in a magic submarine…

Several commentators have remarked that, while the mainstream media is locked in furious agreement with the government over AUKUS and the trillion dollar submarines (a guess at the final price tag), social and independent media are telling quite a different tale.

Scientists call for urgent groundwater management

Israel’s recent three-day killing spree in Gaza, in which the most lethal missiles were unleashed against the civilian population, is a sure-fire way to drum up votes for Yair Lapid, Israel’s current Prime Minister. 

The blitzkrieg demonstrated that he is at least as good at killing Palestinians as his contender, Benjamin Netanyahu. Some Israelis call their massacres in Gaza ‘mowing the lawn’. Their sharp blades have already cropped/slashed/dismembered 43 Gazans, including 15 children, but there hasn’t been a peep of protest from the Albanese government or from the US and its lackeys, who spout the need for a ‘rules based international system’. 

No sooner had the bodies been buried, than the former Israeli ambassador to the US, Danny Ayalon, was hosted by the NSW Parliament on 9 August. This is the same man who made, The Truth About the West Bank in which he denies the existence of Palestine, thus reasserting the old Zionist catchcry, ‘A land without a people for a people without a land’. However, Visualising Palestine released The Real Truth About Palestine in Response to Danny Ayalon, a humorous yet devastating rebuttal that can be looked up online. 

Give Israel the elbow, Albo!

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.


  1. Boycotts, Sanctions, Blockades, and Invasion. That’s what we do to other countries, but never Israel. In fact the Israeli lobbies around the world have had laws put in other countries to prevent us from stopping them, even the UN can’t intervene. They just had laws put into Canada combating ‘misinformation’ which was code for 2 years mandatory jail time without trial for publishing a story like this.

    When people say ‘Jews run the world’ they aren’t talking about people like me. Anti-Zionism is not Anti-Semitism, accept in the growing number of countries that have laws declaring it so. These people are all about prosecuting their victims for fighting back , or even just speaking out. It’s easy for them to get you all to go along with it, they just scream Holocaust or Anti-Semitism at you and you bow down and let them silence whistle-blowers then do terrible things. That con works quite well. They even may manage to take over the world, but it won’t be to the benefit of Jews like me.

    Wake the f*ck up White people. You went to war with Germany for less, and it wasn’t because you ‘just hated German people’, it’s about behaviour, and this Internationalist Kabal are doing a lot more than genociding some Palestinians. Need permission? I give it to you, there are a lot of us Jews screaming at you, we get deplatformed. They are already putting censorship laws in here, before long we won’t even be able to talk about this. Hurry up.

  2. Thank you Gareth and Christian for telling the truth.
    The Israeli Government is now attempting to criminalise Human Rights through attacks on Israeli human rights organisations by designating them as “terrorists” without a shred of evidence, raiding their offices in the middle of the night, then welding their doors shut. Their crime? Co-operation with the International Criminal Court to identify Israeli war crimes.
    Let’s call out Zionism for what it really is – the assertion that Jews have a right to violently establish and maintain an ethno-religious state in the homeland of Palestinians at the expense of the Palestinian people.

    • You may want to expand the scope of some of your statements. I suggest checking out the documentary ‘Europa’, a free version has been made available on bitchute of all places. Bit out of date, but it will give you the gist.
