 Josh Ruebner is author of Shattered Hopes: Obama's Failure to Broker Israeli-Palestinian Peace and policy director of the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation.   He's pointing out that: "In its current attack on the occupied and besieged Palestinian Gaza Strip, Israel is misusing U.S.-supplied weaponry, in violation of U.S. laws such as the Arms Export Control and Foreign Assistance Act, to carry out massacres against Palestinian civilians and deliberate destruction of Palestinian civilian infrastructure. However, instead of holding Israel accountable for its violations of these laws, the United States is deeply complicit in Israel's apparent war crimes by continuing to allow U.S. weapons to be employed in this manner." See "Is U.S. Military Aid to Israel Legal?" -- part of the the group's policy paper on military aid to Israel.

Professor emeritus of international law at Ohio State University, Quigley's books include The Statehood of Palestine: International Law in the Middle East Conflict, Genocide in Cambodia, and The Ruses for War.
Prof Quigley says the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, is concerned that the fire power being brought to bear on Gaza indicates that war crimes are being committed. The level of civilian deaths being caused is out of all proportion to whatever military objectives are being targeted."

Sup­ple­ment­ing and expand­ing an inves­ti­ga­tion first pub­lished in Ed Haslam's 1996 title Mary, Fer­rie and the Mon­key Virus, this vol­ume intro­duces the remark­able story of Judyth Vary Baker, a bril­liant can­cer researcher recruited to work on a clan­des­tine project in which viruses were irra­di­ated. Appar­ently inau­gu­rated in order to cre­ate an anti-cancer vac­cine, the project mor­phed into an effort to cre­ate bio­log­i­cal weaponry, ini­tially to assas­si­nate Fidel Cas­tro and, per­haps, to cre­ate geno­ci­dal weapons. Among Ms. Baker's co-workers in the project were (allegedly) Lee Har­vey Oswald. After a rup­ture with Dr. Arnold Ochsner, the med­ical lumi­nary who presided over the project, Lee allegedly trav­eled to Dal­las to attempt to pre­vent the assas­si­na­tion of Pres­i­dent Kennedy by ele­ments of U.S. intel­li­gence. Unsuc­cess­ful, he was framed for the crime and mur­dered before he had a chance to defend him­self. After the 1964 mur­der of Dr. Mary Sher­man, the Ochsner asso­ciate who was a piv­otal mem­ber of the project's staff, the deadly mutated viruses appear to have fallen into the hands of mur­der­ous right-wing extrem­ists con­nected to the intel­li­gence community.

The ruling for Hobby Lobby sets a dangerous precedent for future laws, such as the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, because it could give legal argument to for-profit companies to claim religious exemption on non-discrimination policies,” said Justin Nelson, co-founder and president NGLCC
