Fighting Jim Crow in Israel
Mike Whitney
Ideas have consequences, and the effects of a racist ideology are suffering and destruction. The growing similarity between the debris-strewn Levant and the Gaza Strip are not accidental; they are the predictable results of a world-view which places the value of one people above another. In Israel, there is a two-tiered system of justice; one for Jews and another for non Jews; full-citizenship for Israeli-Jews and "Jim Crow" for Arabs. Is that acceptable Property rights,! marriage, citizenship and nearly every other area of legal protection are corrupted by the effects of institutionalized racism. We believe that there are no "second class" citizens, that every man deserves equal protection under the law. That is the fundamental principle of democracy. Israel calls itself a democracy, but its prevailing ethos of Zionism precludes an evenhanded application of the law...

Reflections on the Israeli holocaust in Lebanon
Khalid Amayreh
The month-long Nazi-like Israeli blitz in Lebanon, which has destroyed the bulk of the country’s civilian infrastructure and killed and maimed thousands of Lebanese civilians is probably redefining and morphing our world in many respects. Indeed, while Lebanon was being raped and decapitated, the world watched helplessly, silently even gleefully, as Israel’s diabolical war machine annihilated innocent civilians by the thousands and utterly destroyed h! omes, bridges, schools, mosques, power stations, airports as well as entire neighborhoods...

Video Israel Doesn’t Want You to See
Sabbah's blog
The Israeli army has expressed a note of contrition after a television station aired a videotape showing an army assault on a Palestinian home in which a mother of five children died (...) Huda Hawarjeh was one of seven people to die in the Bethlehem area that day. The Israeli army allows the media such close access on the understanding it can embargo anything it doesn’t want broadcast. The tapes of the assault on the Hawarjeh home fell into that category. But Ch! annel 2 broke the embargo anyway. The army, government and many Israeli citizens didn’t like what they saw. Channel 2 showed Hawarjeh begging soldiers to allow an ambulance through. The camera captured the terror of the woman’s daughter, and her brother’s attempt to stop her from showing the soldiers her fear...

Iraqi Resistance Report for events of Saturday, 12 August 2006.
Translated and/or compiled by Muhammad Abu Nasr, member, editorial board, the Free Arab Voice.
...In a dispatch posted at 5:05pm Makkah time Saturday afternoon, Mafkarat al-Islam reported that US occupation troops shot and killed in cold blood a 15-year-old Iraqi boy in ar-Ramadi, about 110km west of Baghdad Friday morning. The ar-Ramadi correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam reported al-Hajjah Khalidah Faraj al-'Alwani as saying, "The American forces e! xecuted my son behind the city courthouse," without providing any further details as she collapsed before the body of her son. Neighbors of the victim, however, explained that the boy had been arrested two days earlier by the Americans during a campaign of arrests in the city...

The Voice of Cornwall
The child on the hospital bed was no more than a skeleton with a parchment of skin stretched over him. When I placed my palm on the hollow of his stomach there was no response. When I looked close into his dilated eyes, not a flicker. They were dead, brown orbs in their sockets. The doctor at the El Wafa hospital in Gaza explained that the boys in this room were almost entirely brain-dead. The medical staff cared for them as best they could. But soon they would di! e, in their vegetative state, from the head wounds they had suffered from Israeli mortars, shells and bullets. The impression of that boy flickered over my mind this week. The pity and the pitilessness of it all. Yet he and the others were only a few of the child casualties. Multiply them many times over. Magnify the extremities of their wounds. And then fast forward a few years...

Is an Armament Sickening U.S. Soldiers?
Deborah Hastings, AP
It takes at least 10 minutes and a large glass of orange juice to wash down all the pills — morphine, methadone, a muscle relaxant, an antidepressant, a stool softener. Viagra for sexual dysfunction. Valium for his nerves. Four hours later, Herbert Reed will swallow another 15 mg of morphine to cut the pain clenching every part of his body. He will do it twice more before the day is done. Since he left a bombed-out train depot in Iraq, his gums bleed. T! here is more blood in his urine, and still more in his stool. Bright light hurts his eyes. A tumor has been removed from his thyroid. Rashes erupt everywhere, itching so badly they seem to live inside his skin. Migraines cleave his skull. His joints ache, grating like door hinges in need of oil (...) "I'm just a zombie walking around," he says. Reed believes depleted uranium has contaminated him and his life...

Descent Into Moral Barbarism
Should Alan Dershowitz Target Himself for Assassination?

As Israel's military bravely fires away shells and missiles to lay waste the fragile human and physical infrastructure of Lebanon, Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz, waging battle on a second front to legitimize Israel's criminal aggression, bravely fires away op-eds from his foxhole at Martha's Vineyard to lay waste the fragile infrastructure of international law. These are but the latest salvo! es in Dershowitz's long and distinguished career of apologetics on behalf of his Holy State. Since becoming a born-again Zionist after the June 1967 war Dershowitz has justified each and all of Israel's egregious violations of international law. In recent years he has used the "war on terrorism" as a springboard for a full frontal assault on this body of law...

Letter from Lebanon
The Proximity of Death

Death is close here. And some of us are not as close to death as others. The south of Lebanon is cut off from humanitarian aid. Here on the north side of the Litani River, the people in the south, taking the worse of the missiles and mortars of the Israel aggression, are always on our minds. There are whispers in the back of our thoughts: "How long do they have? How can we possibly get to them?" The roads and the bridges are bombed, cut and scar! red. Israel has banned movement south in the south. Any car that's on the road can be hit. UN convoys, ambulances, the BBC, the big names and those with Israeli clearances, have been hit. Now hunger hits bellies in the south. Their thirst must fit the water. There is no more. No medication for chronic illness, or for sicknesses caused by drinking polluted tap water in desperation, sicknesses that twist your intestines and swiftly take the lives of children...

The Ceremony of Innocence is Drowned
Chris Floyd
In the oceans of newsprint and tsunamis of pixels expended on the London bomb plot stories over the last two days, I don't recall seeing -- anywhere, either in the US or UK media -- that one little word which differentiates honest journalism from the noxious regurgitations of state propaganda: "alleged." Everywhere, you read that a "bomb plot was thwarted" -- not an alleged bomb plot. Everywhere, you read that the plotters (or most of them) have been captured -- no! t the "alleged" plotters. Everywhere, whatever line is being laid down by "intelligence officials" and government poo-bahs is accepted uncritically and megaphoned out to the public. Everywhere the presumption of innocence -- one of the bedrock liberties of the "way of life" that we are supposed to be defending -- is gleefully tossed aside...

Randi Rhodes Owes Neal Boortz $5000

Randi Rhodes Owes Neal Boortz $5000

By Good Lieutenant

ON CNN's Larry King Live, rambling liberal talker Randi Rhodes duked it out with libretarian powerhouse Neal Boortz.

Per usual, Randi couldn't come up with substantive arguments to refute or invalidate any of Neal's positions or assertions, and quickly became domineering and obnoxious - King couldn't even keep her under control.

One point of contention. Rhodes made a claim that Boortz called "all Muslims ragheads" on his show (around 3:26 in the video). Over the next minute or so, she insisted repeatedly that Boortz said this. She also told him to go to Media Matters (quite indignantly), a Soros-funded leftist clearing house of leftwing bias, to check it out. Neal bet her on air $5000 that he never called all Muslims "ragheads" (even repeating it for clarity) and Rhodes stupidly bragged that he should write a check to her chosen charity.

I checked into that little challenge by Rhodes.

Sorry, Randi, but you're completely wrong. Here's the transcrip from the audio clip (scroll down) so you can listen for yourself:
Boortz: Well, I know you disagree with me. That's fine, you can disagree all you want. And I also believe that this Muhammad guy is just a phony rag-picker that created --
You lose, Rhodes. Not only did he not use the word "ragheads," but he was talking about Mohammed the prophet.

The devil's in the details when you're betting, babe. Pay up.

UPDATE: MK Freeberg at the House of Eratosthenes, an avid Boortz fan, picked up on this before I did. Had I read the blog that nobody reads before posting this post, I might have spared myself the work. Fweh.

Mom, This is Mark Bingham

By James B.

One of the subjects the 9/11 deniers frequently bring up is the Mark Bingham phone call. Jim Fetzer in particular seems to find this especially hilarious. As Loose Change says:

A man claiming to be Mark Bingham called his mother, Alice, who was visiting his sister-in-law. The caller says, "Mom? This is Mark Bingham."
When was the last time you called your mother and used your full name?

Well, why don't they ask his mom? From a Discovery Channel interview with Mark's mother, Alice Hoglan:

Hoglan: I was staying with my brother Vaughan on the morning of September 11th, and, uh, the phone rang.

Bingham (reconstruction): Mom... Mom, this is Mark Bingham.

Hoglan: Once in a while he would say that. He would call up, and he was, he was a young businessman, and used to, used to introduce himself on phone as Mark Bingham, and he was trying to be, uh, strong, and level-headed, and, and strictly business. "Mom, this is Mark Bingham".

So how did the conspirators know that Mark Bingham would address his mother in this unusual way? Even more, how did they know to call his mom at her in-law's house? The "fake"Mark talked to three people, how was he able to tell who was who? How did he manage to fool all three of them in real time? Come on Dylan, you are claiming to be looking for the truth. Answer this. Or are you going to claim she had her son killed, just like you did to Bernard Brown Sr?

Hat Tip to 9/11 Myths, where you can also find the video clip.

Is Anybody Really This Stupid?

Humint Events Online
The 9/11 hijacking attacks were very likely facilitated by a rogue group within the US government that created an Islamic terrorist "Pearl Harbor" event as a catalyst for the military invasion of Middle Eastern countries. This weblog will explore the incredibly strange events of 9/11/01, and other issues of US government responsibility.

Is Anybody Really This Stupid?

By Spooked

In hour 2 of the Fetzer interview of Prof. Jones, both Fetzer and Morgan Reynolds called Jones to task, claiming that they have seen pictures of molten aluminum where it was glowing hot, just like - you guessed it: the molten metal pouring out of the south tower minutes before it's collapse. All this time I was under the impression that the video of the molten metal was definintely thermite, because molten aluninum is silvery, now I hear this. I have told numerous people about the video showing thermite, now it may turn out that the government was correct about it being aluminum after all. If this turns out to be the case, I don't know what to believe anymore. Could it be that we are all wrong about 911 being an inside job? We would certainly look foolish if that were the case. Jesus.
windex | 08.11.06 - 8:06 pm | #

This person needs to get a clue.

The fact is, a good case for 9/11 being an inside job exists, without getting into demolition, cell phone calls or no-planes (the so-called physical evidence people avoided for so long). The stories of the hijackers alone, are HIGHLY suspicious. The hijackers are, in fact, greatly neglected by everyone on both sides of the 9/11 issue, and it is extremely clear the official story is simply wrong regarding the hijackers.

It is really only in the last year or so, that demolition of the WTC towers has become a generally accepted fact among 9/11 skeptics. This was probably because early high profile 9/11 skeptics specifically avoided any physical evidence issues, for reasons that are not entirely clear (either they honestly thought it was too controversial or they were promoting a form of disinformation), and thus it took a while for people to learn about the demolition issue.

Source: U.S., U.K. at odds over timing of arrests

By John Amato on Terrorism

Anyone doubt the timing of this story now?

British wanted to continue surveillance on terror suspects, official says. NBC News has learned that U.S. and British authorities had a significant disagreement over when to move in on the suspects in the alleged plot to bring down trans-Atlantic airliners bound for the United States.

A senior British official knowledgeable about the case said British police were planning to continue to run surveillance for at least another week to try to obtain more evidence, while American officials pressured them to arrest the suspects sooner. The official spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the case.

In contrast to previous reports, the official suggested an attack was not imminent, saying the suspects had not yet purchased any airline tickets. In fact, some did not even have passports.

Update on the terror [London] plot

Update on the terror plot

By Joseph

Consider this post an addendum of sorts to the preceding one.

The lead suspect in the recent terrorist investigation, Rashid Rauf, appears to be the owner of this web page. He also appears to be the proprietor of a Pakistani company called Heathwise, which distributes beauty and health products manufactured elsewhere, including Natural White toothpaste. The idea naturally suggests itself that this business may have some relation to the methodology ascribed to the plotters -- i.e., using everyday products to hide dangerous liquids.

Rashid Rauf's father immigrated to the UK decades ago, which means that Rashid and his siblings are UK citizens. However, Rashid left the UK in 2002, after he was questioned by British police following the stabbing death of his uncle, a man named Mohammed Saeed. The Rauf family appears to be connected to a couple of well-regarded British restaurants.

The German weekly Focus has linked one of the plotters with Said Bahaji, accused on being a member of the 9/11 "Hamburg cell." So far, we have neither confirmation nor additional details.

In truth, this entire case needs confirmation. Although I would not be even slightly surprised to discover that Rauf family members really were involved in a vile scheme, we do not yet posssess sufficient evidence to discount allegations of a "wag the dog" scenario. All of our information derives from pronouncements by the British, Pakistani and United States governments. Four years ago, I would have taken such pronouncements at face value. Today, the phrase "consider the source" suggests itself.

Two things are certain:

1. Bush has lied about a supposed connection between this plot and Hezbollah. Hezbollah is an Iranian-supported Shi'ite group; Al Qaeda supporters consider Shi'ism to be a kind of heresy, and they have no love for Iran.

2. Bush has actually weakened our security. From the AP (quoted by Buzzflash): "While the British terror suspects were hatching their plot, the Bush administration was quietly seeking permission to divert $6 million that was supposed to be spent this year developing new homeland explosives detection technology."

Boyd was on MSNBC and he carefully detailed the absolute stupidity regarding the new airport carry-on rules while rightfully blasting Bush Administration, Transportation Security Administration, and the Department of Homeland Security.

It’s amazing that almost five years after 9-11, where still having to deal with these huge holes in security. After you hear what Boyd has to say, you’ll be really piss you off at the Bush administration (because it’s all true).

…and don’t forget Joe Lieberman’s role with the Department of Homeland Security.

Israel’s War Crimes: NGOs Need to Get a Clue

By Administrator on Uncategorized

More useless hand-wringing from the humanitarian NGOs. “Humanitarian agencies sought ways to get aid to an estimated 100,000 people trapped in southern Lebanon on Friday and the mayor of Tyre said the port city could run out of food in two days,” reports ABC News. “United Nations and other convoys have been unable to deliver supplies to the region since an Israeli air strike destroyed the last bridge across the Litani river on Monday.”

It is interesting to note that these humanitarian organizations refuse to admit the obvious and act upon it—Israel and its patron, the United States, are criminal organizations and unless there is political consciousness realizing this fact and political action on the part of the NGOs and, indeed, millions of citizens in these countries, nothing will change.

Remarkably, International Committee of the Red Cross chief Jakob Kellenberger wasted a whole lot of precious time playing pattycakes in Jerusalem, attempting to convince the racist settler state to stop killing innocents in Lebanon. In other words, the good Mr. Kellenberger is a dupe for the Zionists, who have no intention of letting up on their diabolical ethnic cleansing and slaughtering of babies and grandmothers in Lebanon with depleted uranium and other illegal weapons. Kellenberger should refuse to talk with the Jabotinskyites and instead talk about organizing an economic boycott of the country.

“The U.N. World Food Program, overseeing logistics for U.N. agencies, said a 15-truck convoy to the eastern town of Baalbek halted at the city of Zahle due to shelling on the road ahead,” ABC News continues. “It also received Israeli clearance for convoys to Nabatiyeh, a town north of the Litani, but could not reach Tyre, the biggest city south of the river, or border villages.”

As we know, Israel not only purposely shells roads, preventing humanitarian assistance, but also targets ambulances and fleeing refugees, scurrilous war crimes all. It is all part of the Master Plan of “reshaping” the Arab and Muslim Middle East by way of mass murder and starvation, crimes reminiscent of the Nazis. In the short term, this plan includes ethnically cleansing southern Lebanon to the Litani and annexing hundreds of squares miles, much of it prime agriculture real estate and the crown jewel, the fresh water of the Litani River, a resource Israel sorely needs and has conspired to steal for decades.

Israel, driven insane by its own hubris and racist religious precepts, fully intends to clear all Arabs, both Muslim and Christian, from this snatched “security zone,” an objective only its demented leaders and military strategists believe can be accomplished. Hezbollah, an entirely legal resistance movement (minus its ill-advised rocketing of Israel), knows differently. Hezbollah understands from personal experience that people will resist occupation and slowly, methodically take out brutal occupiers one troop at a time, as the Vietnamese and Algerians did before them.

“It is now clear that Israel’s control over the occupied territories is, and has all along been intended to be, a drive to assert exclusive Jewish control, taming the Palestinians into submission and squeezing them into ever smaller, more disconnected segments of land or, failing that, forcing them to leave Palestine altogether,” write Kathleen and Bill Christison. “It is totally obvious to anyone who spends time on the ground in Palestine-Israel that the animating force behind the policies of the present and all past Israeli governments in Israel and in the occupied West Bank, Gaza, and East Jerusalem has always been a determination to assure the predominance of Jews over Palestinians. Such policies can only be described as racist, and we should stop trying any longer to avoid the word.”

Or for that matter, the predominance of Jews over Lebanese Arabs.

Like a dim-witted fool who continually makes the same mistake over and over again, the ICRC and other humanitarian organizations seem dedicated to not solving the problem in Lebanon and Palestine, avoiding the obvious—Israel and its patron the United States are renegade, criminal nations and should be criticized at every turn, boycotted, shunned, and denounced. Otherwise, the insanity will go on indefinitely.

Or until Newt Gingrich and the perfidious neocons realize their World War Three. On that day, as the nukes fly and the planet begins its descent into irreparable damage, it will be too late to save not only the Lebanese, but humankind as a whole.

Certain Jewish folks and certain dubious activities

By aangirfan

The sources for the following include:
'The Sacred Chain - A History of the Jews' by Norman Cantor - Harper Collins, 1995

"It was the Jews, by and large," says Norman Cantor, "not the Italians, who created what was later called the Mafia .

"In the 1920s the Italians began to replace the Jews in the New York organized crime industry, but as late as 1940 if you wanted a spectacular hit you were looking for a representative of the Lepke Buchalter Gang, also known as Murder Inc.

"Jews were also prominent in the gambling trade and developed Las Vegas in the 1940s. It was a Jewish gambler who fixed the 1919 baseball World Series - what became known as the Black Sox scandal."

Marvin Kitman has written: "The Jews were the first ones to realize the link between organized crime an organized politics . They led the way in corrupting the police and city hall."

Reportedly, the Seagram's alcohol fortune (the Canadian Bronfman family ) 'grew to power by getting their alcohol into criminal hands who smuggled it into the United States. Bronfman, who bristled when anyone called him a bootlegger, had a distribution deal for his booze with Jewish mobster Meyer Lansky.'

David Ben-Gurion was jailed in Warsaw, Poland . "That was the first time," he said, "that I ever came into contact with the dregs of society. I was shaken to the core at the language and behavior. I never had the slightest notion that such people ever existed ... The thing that shook me most was that these criminals were Jews."

In 1999, the ( London ) Daily Mail pointed out that the gangster Kray twins, Ronnie and Reggie, were "of Jewish... stock."

According to the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, September 15, 1999, "Between 50 and 80 percent of the Russian economy is said to be in Jewish hands, with the influence of the five Jews among the eight individuals commonly referred to as 'oligarchs' particularly conspicuous."

Mark Rich Helped KGB Create Hidden Government,
According to Newsmax, Saturday, March 31, 2001: "Mark Rich, the most-wanted fugitive pardoned by former President Clinton, was a key figure in the Communist Party and the KGB's creation of an underground government that survived the break-up of the Soviet Union and still rules Russia today behind the scenes."

UN Resolution fails to acknowledge that Israel has launched a War against Lebanon
Transcript of Resolution 1701: "the word "War" is not mentioned.

Michel Chossudovsky,
UN Security Council Resolution 1701 was drafted by France and the US in close consultation with the Israeli government. a) The resolution is in blatant violation of the UN charter and international law. It fails to acknoweldge that Israel has launched an all out war on Lebanon in violation of international law. It desc! ribes the bombing and destruction of an entire country as as a "conflict between Hizbollah and Israel". The word "war" does not appear in the the text of the Resolution. b) Referring to the two abducted Israeli soldiers, the Resolution states that Hizbollah was responsible for launching "the attack on Israel on 12 July". It denies the fact, amply documented, that an all out war against Lebanon had been in the planning stages well before July 12. c) The historical causes of the war are denied. The abduction of the two Israeli soldiers on July 12, is presented as a just cause for Israeli retaliation...

This paragraph clearly lays the blame on Hizbullah for the Israeli war of aggression. And notice that Hizbullah's capture of the Israeli soldiers is sneakily blamed for "the hundreds of deaths and injuries on both sides." Both sides is always brought up when Israeli record of murder and terrorism is being covered by an international agency under US pressures, in order to absolve Israel...

What a Relief: Terrorist Babies Have Been Killed!
Courtenay Francis Raymond Barnett
Dear George, This is a personal appeal for you to decide. I know that you are "the decider" who will make sensible decisions once you read this letter. The topic is terrorism. The noun "terrorism" is on a lot of peoples’ minds. The Oxford English dictionary informs me that the word means, "use of violence and intimidation especially for political purposes." I recall Nelson Mandela resorting to violence when peaceful request! s failed to achieve his political ends of justice and representation for all South Africans. The Palestinians seem likewise to have been radicalised over time after their legitimate political grievances for justice, representation and statehood were ignored. Keeping occupied land, not respecting the dictates of UN Resolution 242 while not withdrawing to the 1967 borders, imprisonment of thousands of Palestinians, building Apartheid walls around the Palestinians, of course are the types of minor irritants that could never in the minds of fair and just people ever constitute any form of violence or intimidation for political purposes –never!...

Gen Anton Lahad assumed control of the South Lebanon Army (SLA) in 1984 - two years after it was implicated in the massacre of up to several thousand Palestinians in the refugee camps of Sabra and! Shatila. Now he says that Israel is tapping into his expertise in secret meetings...

One Iraqi father gets a taste of freedom
Truth About Iraqis
Freedom. Liberty. Justice. Family of nations. War on terror. From Zappy's Where Date Palms Grow: Saturday, August 12, 2006 Dracul’s Barbecue It is told that Count Dracul had his enemies impaled on the outskirts of Transylvania to horrify the Turks from ever wanting to invade Transylvania that was back in the fifteenth century. Last week a neighbor found his son in front of his door, Impaled with a reinforcing steel rod, there were tomat! oes and onions on both sides of that Rod. I am going to stop blogging for a while. Zappy, who can blame you. But do our souls go silent as well? What can we possibly tell this father? How can we console him? And when we are done consoling him, how many countless others are there grieving, distraught and in disarray? What do Iraqis have to look forward to? Death? In Iraq these days, it is said those who die are blessed for they do not have to face what else is coming...

The Anglo-American empire’s “next 9/11” will set up final war; “foiled” UK terror plot a propaganda dry run
Larry Chin, Online Journal Associate Editor
The August 10 report of a spectacular foiled UK-based super-terror plot, an alleged Operation Bojinka variation, has sparked an unprecedented round of 9/11-style fear and panic mongering throughout the world. This is a new attempt, at the highest levels of the Bush and Blair administrations, in concert with Pakistan’s ISI and Israel, to fabricate the justification! for an escalation in the "war on terrorism" across the Middle East. This escalation will include an attack on Iran and Syria as early as October, and with even greater geostrategic violence to follow. Proof that Bush administration planning the next 9/11. Dick Cheney recently declared: "The enemy that struck on 9/11 is fractured and weakened, yet still lethal, still determined to hit us again." That is a concise description of Cheney’s own administration, and its intentions. And he knows it...

Demonstrate today! Stop the U.S./Israeli assault on Lebanon and Palestine!
Eli Stephens, Left I on the News
Event details: Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle. re-event coverage of the march in the Washington Post, entitled "Protest to Encircle White House." As far as the "peace deal" agreed to last night by the U.N. (not by the warring parties!), I believe this headline, describing actions taking place after that vote, pretty much says it all: "Israel nearly triples troops in Lebanon." Actually! what also says it all about this one-sided deal is the slogan you'll be chanting today if you go to one of the demonstrations: "No justice, no peace!"...

War now, peace later: Israel’s doves line up behind war - Part one
Jean Shaoul, WSWS
One of the most significant features of Israel’s wars of aggression in Gaza and Lebanon is the unanimity between the so-called "hawks" and movements that in the past were considered "doves." Peace Now has remained largely silent over Israel’s massive assault on Hamas and the Palestinians in Gaza, ongoing since June. In the case of Lebanon, from the moment full-scale hostilities began in July following Hezbollah’s capture of two I! sraeli soldiers, Peace Now declared its support for the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) and the Olmert government. It issued a statement on its web site explaining that its members had gone to Kibbutz Gonen in northern Israel to proclaim that Israel had the right to respond to the capture of the Israeli soldiers and that Peace Now supported Israel’s right to defend its borders. Peace Now has echoed the government’s propaganda that Israel faces provocations by Hamas and Hezbollah, accepting the official Israeli and American definition of both organisations as terrorist groups...

We are all Hezbollah!
Sabbah's blog
... I wrote this poem a few days friend in Lebanon passed on Friday. He was helping women and children escape from Tyre. His legs were blown off and he was left in this position for many hours. He later died on the way to assistance when the Hezbollah soldiers found him. He was not a soldier. Just a boy studying photography, he likes flowers and had a small little bird, and loved peanut butter. sorry if i sound mad right now...

Bomb Kills 2 U.S. Soldiers in Baghdad

The names of the soldiers were not released and no further details were given...

LIQUID TERROR: Training People To Act Like Subservient Slaves
Terrorists planned to mix liquids so why are they all being poured into airport bins?

Steve Watson / A
The latest terror plot facade is nothing more than an exercise to assess how subservient the general population has become and a primer to making permanent the panicked and ridiculous freedom crushing security measures we are seeing being rushed into implementation at the moment. Whilst the government is saying there is no goin! g back on these measures and that they will become permanent, the media is bleating about rushing in biometric retina scanners and Orwellian behaviour sensing technology. This is the only way they can do these things without backlash and protest, just have a major terror alert and rush them through. How is it that people can still deny that our governments are forwarding a big brother control agenda? ID cards, Biometric databases, retina scanners, face scanning cameras, behaviour sensing machines. The list goes on. It has been proven over and over that these measures will not help prevent terrorism, the government itself has even admitted this, so why do they relentlessly push them?...

Miri Eisen, Mother For Peace, Justifies Killing Arab Kids And Arab Bloggers See the Light
...The Christian Science Monitor writes that the Arab and North American transplant Zionist bloggers aren't seeing eye-to-eye so much nowadays. Pity that they no longer will be used by Zionist propagandists to put a good face on Israel. Like Miri Eisen, a transplanted American, who is hailed as a "Mother For Peace," along with Vichy Palestinian Noni Darwish, who comes on CNN to put a nice face on Israel's slaughter ! of handicapped Lebanese kids. At least Rosemary Church of CNN International didn't let her get away with it (this is a great video)...

The Wailing Wall Martyr Brigade: Jewnetic Engineering
Gilad Atzmon, peacepalestine
As the Israeli Army buries its dead in what seems to be a war that the Jewish State can never win, we happen to learn from a high official within the Pentagon that Israel is about to make use of what seems to be its ultimate devastating weapon. We also have discovered that the recent French-American diplomatic push for a UN Security Council Resolution calling for an immediate cease-fire is there to postpone the deployment of this n! ew weapon, preventing Israel from dragging the world into a new horrifying phase of warfare, with results whose outcome cannot be predicted...

Bush Versus the Constitution
David Swanson
Last December, when Congressman John Conyers released a huge report documenting the evidence that Bush and Cheney had lied us into a war, he also introduced a bill (H. Res. 635) to start a preliminary investigation of the matter and make recommendations on impeachment. This showed far more courage, not to mention long hours of work, than any other member of Congress had mustered at that time or since. But it was disingenuous. Impeachment is itself an investigation; a pre! liminary investigation is redundant. And any investigation is unnecessary when the impeachable offenses are part of the public record. Last week, Conyers released an expanded report, including new superfluous evidence of proven crimes related to the war, plus a lengthy Section 2 focused on illegal spying programs. The evidence of blatant criminality and threat to the Constitution in this new section is devastating...

The dog really does wag the tail!
Simon Jones
Just when it became patently obvious that the tail was in complete control of the dog (i.e., Izzy was directing US Middle East policy), the dog has decided to try to reassert control over its nether appendage. Since the days of Raygun, the Jewish lobby in Washington (and every nook and cranny in the US) has wielded more and more power, until with AIPAC, PNAC, 911 and Iraq, it took complete control over US foreign policy, getting Washington to wage open war agai! nst Israel's greatest enemy - Islam...
