Iran’s Revolutionary Guard offers to escort future Gaza aid vessels

Iran’s Revolutionary Guard offers to escort future Gaza aid vessels

Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards are ready to provide a military escort to cargo ships trying to break Israel's blockade of Gaza, a representative of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Sunday.

"Iran's Revolutionary Guards naval forces are fully prepared to escort the peace and freedom convoys to Gaza with all their powers and capabilities," Ali Shirazi, Khamenei's representative inside the Revolutionary Guards, was quoted as saying by the semi-official Mehr news agency.

Any intervention by the Iranian military would be considered highly provocative by Israel which accuses Iran of supplying weapons to Hamas, the Islamist movement which rules Gaza.

Kidnapped by Israel and abandoned by Britain

There was a second helicopter hovering over the ship, trying to lower Israeli soldiers down on a rope. On either side there was tear gas being thrown in from the boats, canisters which they were firing from a sort of gun. One man was shot in the top of the head from the helicopter. He collapsed on the ground. I snatched a microphone from one of the Turkish reporters to say one man had been killed. As I did that another man was shot. Those people died instantly.

Until that point I had not yet seen an Israeli soldier on deck. As far as I am concerned, it's a lie to say they only started shooting on deck. Only then did I see an Israeli soldier on deck.

The men who were dead had been fired on from above.

Gaza Aid Convoy Attack Reveals the Real "Axis of Evil " Facing the World

The aftermath of Israel’s recent actions clearly demonstrate that the international community is now faced with a mortal threat from this US-Israeli axis – an axis of permanent state of war on the world:

Eyewitness accounts from aid workers, released after days of incarceration, flatly contradict official Israeli claims that their heavily armed forces acted in self-defence. Aid workers corroborate initial satellite images that show Israeli forces opening fire on the flotilla before and while boarding these ships.

Turkish autopsy reports show that nine of the dead were shot up to 30 times at point blank range.

"Yes Massah" - Obama shows who owns his sorry ass

These two short videos by a real truth teller highlight the gross partisanship of the Jew dominated Obama Administration in relation to the recent ship hijacking, murder and theft on the high seas by Jewish military pirates. If this incident had been perpetrated by Iranian, Syrian, Turkish or any other Muslim military force against Jews (Israelis), USans or indeed any Western nation's nationals the global mainstream media would be endlessly screaming about it and demanding WAR against the country responsible. Ditto, if the hijacking, killing and theft had been done by Somalian or other non-state sponsored pirates.

The Gaza Flotilla: How Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs Fakes Photos of Seized Weapons

Top Republican to introduce resolution defending Israel against flotilla criticism

Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) said Sunday he is planning to introduce a resolution next week defending Israel against criticism it has received over its handling of the Gaza flotilla incident.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No government can serve two masters, and a government that serves Israel cannot serve the American people. A friend to Israel is no friend of America.

America needs leaders who will put America first, second, and third.

Vote this traitor out of office for defending the foreign nation that attacked a US-flagged ship in international waters, kidnapped 12 Americans, and shot one of them to death with four bullets in the head.!

The Most Perilous Nuclear Arsenal in the World: Israel invites the World to Revolt

According to the Federation of American Scientists, Israel possesses more than 200 nuclear warheads which are simply adequate to evaporate the whole world in a matter of moments.

Israel which is the only possessor of nuclear weapons in the Middle East and one of the three non-signatories to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty has blatantly rejected the appeal of the 189 signatories of the NPT, including its key ally the United States, to sign up to the treaty and put its nuclear facilities under the comprehensive safeguards of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

Meet the Southern Poverty Law Center: peek behind the facade to find poverty pimping, race baiting and much, much worse

What is the arch-salesman of hate-mongering, Mr. Morris Dees of the Southern Poverty Law Center doing now? He’s saying that the election of a black president proves his point. Hate is on the rise! Send money!

The SPLC took on a case, on behalf of a mother, or so it seemed, whose son was murdered by Klansmen. The SPLC won the case. The victim's mother was awarded property belonging to perpetrators which was valued at $51,875. The SPLC sent out letters to donors containing a picture of the murdered youth as a means of fundraising, and collected $9,000,000 in total. To cut a long story short, the centre walked away from the case with over 173 times more money from the case than the victim's mother did, and the SPLC didn’t offer her a penny of their mammoth total.

However, the video's keffiyah (headscarf) wearing, knife-wielding 'Arabs' and other members of the 'Flotilla Choir' clearly aren't Turks or Gazans. They're Jewish Israelis singing "there's no people dying" about the Gaza humanitarian-aid flotilla, in which nine people were killed last Monday by Israeli commandos, and many others were shot. A 19-year-old American aboard was shot five times at close range.

Hillary has never spoken of Israel's nuclear weapons program even after the British press published documents proving not only that Israel had nuclear weapons but had tried to sell some of them to Apartheid South Africa.

Press TV interviews it’s Reporter Hassan Ghani – Survivor of Gaza Flotilla

Press TV correspondent, Hassan Ghani, was aboard one of the Freedom Flotilla ship that came under the Israeli attack and in this 3-part video interview, he gives a most credible and measured account of the events of that tragic night, despite the horrors he had witnessed. He mentions in Part 3, a friend Ken O’Keefe who was severely beaten by the Israelis and a picture of Ken in a shocking condition is provided below. Also provided is Ken’s statement given in Istanbul after being deported by Israel.

Hassan Ghani was released from Israeli captivity and went to Turkey to attend the funerals before visiting Iran.

AFTER THE MASSACRE: The Global Impact of the Gaza Flotilla Crisis

By Phyllis Bennis

AMSTERDAM– Israeli commandoes murdered nine humanitarian aid workers in international waters. Nine were Turkish citizens; one a U.S. citizen. They wounded scores more. They imprisoned hundreds, and impounded the ships they hijacked on the high seas. Someone asked me the question: will they get away with it? So far, I answered, they HAVE gotten away with it. And if history repeats itself, if nothing changes, they will continue to get away with it.

Our job is to change history...

Israel Bans the Basics of Life

Webmaster's Commentary: 

None of these items denied to the people of Gaza by Israel is a threat to the Israeli state. Israel denies the basics of life to the people of Gaza to starve them into accepting Israeli rule, just as the USSR tried to blockade and starve the people of West Berlin into accepting Soviet rule in 1948.

The people of the world refused to stand by and allow the West Berliners to be starved into surrendering their sovereignty to the Communists, and mounted the Berlin Airlift to provide the necessities of life, 13,000 tons per day for an entire year, to allow the West Berliners to hold off the barbarian hoards.

The Israeli Commando had an explicit order to kill.

The raids on the Gaza Freedom Flotilla, bear the mark of previous Israeli operations directed against unarmed civilians. It is a well established modus operandi of Israeli military-intelligence operations, which is tacitly supported by the US administration.

Our Enemies, the Israelis

Even when the Israelis blew up a US Navy ship, the USS Liberty, a military reconnaissance vessel that was monitoring Israeli troops movements prior to the Six Day War, Washington went along – in public – with Tel Aviv’s fairy tale claiming it was an “accident.” This disgrace is repeated, today, as the beaten and battered Americans who lived to tell the tale of what happened aboard the flotilla return to bear witness to Israeli brutality. An American citizen is killed, and Washington looks the other way. The ghost of Rachel Corrie is not surprised. Nor am I. Because the Israelis, after all, are our enemies.

BP: 500,000 pounds of emissions released

At BP’s Texas City refinery, more than 400 pounds a day of benzene — 40 times the state reportable levels — was released during a 40-day period while a subunit of the refinery’s ultracracker unit was offline, according to a company filing with the state’s environmental agency Friday.

In all, BP officials said more than 500,000 pounds of pollutants and nonpollutants were released while the company increased flaring as they tried to repair a compressor on the faulty unit.

The massive BP oil refinery in Whiting, Ind., is planning to dump significantly more ammonia and industrial sludge into Lake Michigan, running counter to years of efforts to clean up the Great Lakes.

Indiana regulators exempted BP from state environmental laws to clear the way for a $3.8 billion expansion that will allow the company to refine heavier Canadian crude oil. They justified the move in part by noting the project will create 80 new jobs.

'US missile' used in Yemen strike

'US missile' used in Yemen strike
By Andrew Wander

The US is facing fresh questions over its role in a deadly attack in late 2009 on an alleged Al-Qaida camp in Yemen, after a rights group published what it said was new evidence of US involvement in the strike.

Photographs released by Amnesty International on Monday apparently show parts of a US cruise missile and cluster munitions gathered from the site of the strike last December in the village of al Ma'jalah in southern Yemen.

55 people, including 14 women and 21 children, died in the attack, which also killed 14 alleged al-Qaeda members.

Swine ’flu and Big Pharma: why is there no scandal?

When it emerged that a billion pounds had been wasted in this outrageous boondoggle, no one apologised. Now we learn that some of the scientists who drew up the guidelines had been in the pay of the pharmaceutical corporations that stood to gain from the stockpiling.

This revelation has received less than a thousandth of the media coverage that attended the original “epidemic”. Why is there not more sense of scandal? Are health correspondents embarrassed about the role they played in stoking the panic? Or is it simply that health scares sell more newspapers than government bungling?

Avnery had just entered a taxi, when a dozen rightist thugs attacked him and tried to drag him out of the car. At the critical moment, the police arrived and made it possible for the car to leave. Gush spokesman Adam Keller said: “These cowards did not dare to attack us when we were many, but they were heroes when they caught Avnery alone.”

On Shayetet 13, State Terror and Gaza’s Freedom Flotilla
The unit apparently specializes in placing mines on foreign ships in Israeli ports using underwater personal vehicles (i.e. vehicles with specific gravity equal to the one of sea water); certain subunits of the fleet apparently use what is known in Hebrew as “Toshvei Hutz” (namely “Foreign Residents”) – apparently a military code name for large marine mammals – for the same terrorist activities; the unit apparently employs maritime biologists trained in the Tel Aviv University. Shayetet 13 was the main force used by Israel during the attack on Gaza’s Freedom Flotilla.

Israeli spokespersons and media in recent days have also claimed the soldiers faced "lynching," a provocative term which originated to describe the deliberate mob murders of African Americans by white supremacists in the United States.

In fact the study referenced showed that crude oil was lethal at 4250 parts per million to killifish but combination of oil mixed with Corexit was lethal in as little as 317.7 ppm.

Banks Profit From Near-Zero Interest Rates: Another Reason for States to Own Their Own Banks

...but the purpose of the near-zero interest rates was supposed to be to get the banks to lend again. Instead, they are investing this virtually interest-free money in risk-free government bonds, on which we the taxpayers are paying 2.5% interest; or are using the money to engage in the same sort of unregulated speculation that nearly brought down the economy in 2008, or to buy up smaller local banks, or to pay "outrageous bonuses to their top executives."

...Owning their own banks can allow local governments to tap into the very low interest rates available to private banks, by giving them the same authority to create "bank credit" on their books that private banks have.

Interest (undeservedly collected by private banks) is the root of our excessive tax problem.

BP Live Webcam Working Again.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

BP is yammering on about how much oil they are pumping up from the destroyed Deepwater Horizon oil well and into a tanker, soon to be headed for your local gas station, and I am certain from BP's point of view, salvaging saleable product is a great improvement over the last going on fifty days of total losses.

But the issue for America and the world is not how much oil is being pumped into BP's tankers but how much is still flowing into the Gulf of Mexico.

As can be seen here, the problem is actually far worse than it was before. When the old riser pipe was still in place, it restricted the amount of oil flowing out of the broken BOP, but once that pipe was cut off for the LMRT, the flow became unrestricted and the LMRT failed to seal off the pipe as had been the plan.

In other words, the LMRT failed and BP failed and now things are much worse. If the reports of a second botched drilling sight leaking oil nearby are true, and/or if BP's statement about a broken safety valve 1000 feet below the floor of the Gulf of Mexico are true, then together with what we see here on this video there is no way to stop this thing. The drillers, as Tolkien would put it, delved too deeply and too greedily and woke the nameless horror that dwells in the dark. A real-life Balrog wreathed in flame and black smoke has awoken, and lays waste the halls of Moria!

Schumer In Letter To Hillary: Wants Full Investigation Over Flotilla Incident Due To Possible Terror Ties

Today, U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer, in a personal letter to Secretary Clinton, called for the State Department to immediately conduct an investigation to determine if the Turkish based non-governmental organization (NGO), Insani Yardim Vakfi (IHH), otherwise known as the Foundation for Human Rights and Freedoms and Humanitarian Relief, is currently – or has in the past – provided financial, logistical or material support to any terrorist organizations listed on the State Department’s list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTO).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So Israel can hijack a US-flagged ship in international waters, kidnap 12 Americans and gun one of them down with four bullets in the head and Chuckie Schumer could care less. But if it turns out that the Foundation for Human Rights and Freedoms and Humanitarian Relief's stock clerk's girlfriend's hair stylist's accountant's uncle knows anyone at all in Turkey, Chuckie Schumer will have their head on a lance!

Who do you work for, "Senator"? Who do you really work for.

I urge all my readers in New York to work to kick this man out of the office he clearly has abandoned to serve his foreign master.

Israeli War Crimes: From the U.S.S. Liberty to the Humanitarian Flotilla

On June 8, 1967, two squadrons of Israeli warplanes bombed, napalmed and machine-gunned the US intelligence-gathering ship, USS Liberty, in international waters, killing 34 US sailors and wounding another 172.

Almost to the day, 43 years later, on May 31, 2010, Israeli warships, helicopter gun ships and commandos assaulted a convoy of humanitarian ships carrying ten thousand tons of aid to Gaza in international waters.

Israel Rejects Joint Inquiry Into Aid Ship Attack

Following through on last week’s angry rejection of a UN Security Council resolution calling for an international probe into the attack against aid workers on board the Mavi Marmara, Israel has rejected efforts to organize a joint commission of Israel, the US and Turkey into the incident.

“Israel has the ability and the right to investigate itself, not to be investigated by any international board,” insisted Michael Oren, Israel’s Ambassador to the United States.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Allowing Israel to investigate the attack on the flotilla is like asking Charlie Manson to investigate the Sharon Tate killings.

IDF Released Several Faked Photos – How Can They Be Trusted in ANY Investigation?

Proof has surfaced today that many of the so-called “evidence” photographs being distributed by the Israeli government as examples of terror weapons on board the Gaza aid flotilla date back years:

UN chief moving ahead with probe of Israeli raid

An Israeli official said Sunday that U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon is moving ahead with plans for an international commission to investigate Israel's deadly raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla.

Ban wants former New Zealand Prime Minister Geoffrey Palmer, a maritime law expert, to head the panel, which would include Israeli, Turkish and U.S. representatives, the Foreign Ministry official said. He spoke on condition of anonymity because Ban has not announced details of his proposal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The may well be the United Nation's downfall. If they cannot demonstrate to the world that they are able to enforce international laws on their member states, of which Israel is one, then the United Nations will be seen as an impotent waste of time and money, and Israel will stand revealed as the true creator and owner of the New World Order.

More Gaza Flotilla Detainees Released; Larudee Badly Beaten But Now Headed to Greece

Dr. Paul Larudee, a passenger on the Freedom Flotilla that was attacked by Israel before it could deliver its cargo of humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip, was badly beaten and tasered during the Memorial Day commando raid, but according to latest reports he was released from detention late Wednesday night and is now in flight to Greece.

Galloway announces new land and sea convoys to break the siege of Gaza

Speaking at a demonstration in London which organisers estimated to be more than 20,000 strong, George Galloway announced new land and sea convoys to break the siege of Gaza.

“After extensive discussion in Istanbul,” said Galloway, “I can announce that a land convoy will leave Britain shortly after the end of Ramadan in September and travel through Europe, down through Turkey and Syria into Jordan. We will ask the Egyptian government then to ensure passage from the port of Aqaba to Rafah and into Gaza.

“At exactly the same time a flotilla of boats will be leaving to tour the countries of the Mediterranean before heading for Gaza.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel will scream about it;s right to exist and a right to self defense and a right to ... whatever, but the fact is that Israel was given AMPLE opportunity to search the cargoes for weapons ahead of time, as well as assurances that authorities in the ports of departure for the aid convoys had already made certain no weapons were aboard the ships. Israel REFUSED the invitation by MV Rachel Corrie to inspect the cargoes and simply seized the ship, and again what Israel is preventing from reaching Gaza are not weapons, but building and school supplies. Israel is blockading Gaza not for defense but to starve the Palestinians into accepting Israeli rule, not unlike when the USSR blockaded West Berlin to starve them into accepting Soviet rule.

Israel thumbs nose at world anger

Israel has triggered a new tide of global outrage after it started circulating a video that pokes fun at the Freedom Flotilla activists, recently attacked by armed Israeli commandos.

While world countries and international organizations are up in arms over a deadly Israeli attack on a ship carrying aid for Gazans, Tel Aviv continues to refuse to show any remorse for its violent actions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is the arrogant refusal to show any remorse or shame for the crimes it commits that is fanning world anger and revulsion at Israel.

Israel acts like it is answerable to nobody but itself. and maybe that is the giveaway clue we aol need to be looking at.

Those who would subject the world to the yoke of global government are not the Bilderbergers, not the Masons, not the CFR, not the Trilateralists, nor even the United Nations, not some mythic Illuminati.

The slavers of the world are hiding in plain sight in Israel!

The proof occurred just a week ago when Israel sailed out into international waters and hijacked foreign flagged ships, kidnapped and murdered foreign nationals. People of the world wondered what lunacy possessed Israel's leadership to commit such a crime, but it is obvious Israel does not see it that way. To them, it was their ocean and their ships and Israel was simply chastising some of their misbehaving serfs!

Further proof that Israel is the true author of the New World Order was provided by the United States which ignored the seized US-flagged ship and American citizens and almost literally stepped over the still-warm body of a young boy born in New York and gunned down by Israeli forces in cold blood, to rush to that ersatz and impotent pretender to world government the United Nations, to save Israel from the wrath of those other nation-states that have the temerity to imagine they can criticize mighty Israel! Even now we see reports that Ban-Ki Moon, rather than enforce international law against Israel, is hard at work trying to dissuade Turkey from retaliation for the attack on their ship and nationals. Turkey is now reported to have backed away from confronting Israel! The UN, like the US, is not interested in justice, but in protecting Israel.

Yes, Bilderberg is real, but are there any attendees who are not staunch supporters of Israel? Yes, the CFR and the Trilateral Commission are real, but are there any members who are not staunch supporters of Israel? According to Ha-Aretz, Israel's newspaper, all American government officials must pass a pro-Israel background check! Is this also the case in other nations?

For myself, I am opposed to any global government from any source. The global governments of history have been wonderful affairs for the governors, and terrible for the slaves. One need only look at how Israel governs Gaza and the West Bank to see what global government centered on Israel would be like, with the capital city of Jerusalem sheathed in gold and crowned with more jewels than a Mugal Emperor's palace while the rest of the world lives in bomb-enforced squalor and rubble.

Those who would enslave the world are not hidden in some dark corner avoiding your sight but prance and preen in full view of the world, already surrounded by admiring parasitic sycophants as they arrogantly display their divinely ordained ascendancy over all others.

Teargas Paintballs

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel has made a big deal of the claim that their soldiers were "only" carrying paintball guns, but the fact is that those balls can contain substances other than paint. In film and TV production, paintball guns are used with pyrotechnic materials to simulate bullet hits, and as this web page shows, pain-inducing chemicals are easily delivered using these systems. Of one thing we can therefore be sure; whatever the Israelis had on those paintball guns, it wasn't paint, because no paint splatters can be seen anywhere in the photos of the hijacked ships.

Apologists for the Israeli government's actions insist that the commandos who invaded the Turkish-flagged ships were forced to defend themselves when they found themselves outnumbered by civilians armed with knives and pipes.

From the beginning, it was clear that Israeli forces were concentrating in their largest numbers on the Marmara, a ship carrying some 550 peace activists.

After the Marmara was subdued, the passengers silenced, and their recording equipment confiscated, Israel disseminated a carefully choreographed account of the events that night that would dominate the airwaves for the first 48 hours.

Only as eyewitnesses, traumatised by their experiences, started to return to their home countries, were serious questions raised about the veracity of the Israeli version of events.

ISRAELI'S WHORES GO ON ATTACK AGAINST HELEN THOMAS FOR MENTIONING FLOTILLA IN WH PRESS ROOM!

Longtime White House scribe Helen Thomas caused more than a few eyebrows to perk up when video surfaced on Friday of her declaring that Jews should "get the hell out of Palestine" and go back to Germany and Poland.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The video is actually old. The real issue is that Helen Thomas has twice asked direct questions in the White House Press Room that are VERBOTEN by das Israeligruppenfuhrer!

In his first Press conference as President, Helen asked Obama what nations in the middle east have nuclear weapons right now; a question Obama danced away from without asking.

And this week, Helen asked the White House spokeslug about the attack on the Gaza flotilla that included attacks on the US-flagged "Champion" and the kidnapping of 12 Americans in international waters (the death of one American had not been confirmed at that time).

These are questions that Israel does not like, and Ari Fleicher is trying to make an example out of Helen Thomas to keep the rest of the US media in line before they start listening to the growing voice of moral outrage shouting across the land.

Netanyahu: Israel will not allow establishment of Iranian port in Gaza

Speaking after he was updated Saturday on the peaceful takeover of the Gaza bound aid ship "Rachel Corrie," Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that Israel would "not allow the establishment of an Iranian port in Gaza.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to the citizens of Israel; in making that statement, your Prime Minister has demonstrated, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that he has clearly gone absolutely barking mad.

These flotillas are about bringing desperately needed aid to the people of Gaza. As reported by UNICEF last year,

http://www.juancole.com/2010/01/world-health-agencies-condemn-israeli.html

"Last year UNICEF found that about one in ten children in Gaza is severely malnourished, to the point of stunting. The Israeli blockade is deeply implicated in this semi-starvation of tens of thousands of children, as is the Gaza War launched by Israel a little over a year ago, which wrecked nearly one-fifth of farms and deeply hurt agriculture in general. Gaza once flourished agriculturally, but it was cut off by Israel from its natural markets in the Levant, and the US and Egypt have been induced to support the blockade."

So, Prime Minister Netanyahu, bringing in aid to alleviate the deliberate malnutrition of Palestinian kids in Gaza is tantamount to the "...establishment of an Iranian port in Gaza"?!?!?!?

This statement completely insane, given what UNICEF tells us about the plight of children in Gaza.

I have to wonder if Israeli law has something akin to the mechanism of the US 25th Amendment to the Constitution, which allows for the replacement of our head of state if they are not able to fulfill their job requirements due to physical or mental disability.

Because if Israeli law has such a mechanism in place, now would certainly be an appropriate time to invoke it!

'We had no choice'

When St.-Sgt. S. fast-roped down from an air force Black Hawk helicopter onto the Mavi Marmara Turkish passenger ship on Monday morning, he did not expect to be landing in what he called “a battlefield” and facing off against a group of “murderous mercenaries.”

The 15th and last naval commando from Flotilla 13 (the Shayetet) to rappel down onto the ship from the helicopter, S. said on Thursday that he was immediately attacked by what the IDF has called “the mob of mercenaries” aboard the vessel, just like the soldiers who had boarded just before him.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israelis got killed by friendly fire, as eye-witness after eye-witness accounts of the massacre keep coming forward.

This kind of spin merely underscores Israel's desperation on the cusp of madness to win the PR war, which they have already lost in the world court of intelligent public opinion.

Thousands demonstrate in Tel Aviv against blockade

Left-wing groups in Israel organized a demonstration in Tel Aviv Saturday night in support of the international activists on the Rachel Corrie which was boarded by IDF forces earlier in the day and directed to the port in Ashdod.

Members and supporters of NGOs Gush Shalom, Physicians for Human Rights and Peace Now and the political parties Hadash and Meretz organized the event, which started with a march from Rabin Square and culminated with a rally of several thousand protesters at Museum Plaza in Tel Aviv later in the evening.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is amazingly revelatory that the Israeli press consistently characterizes peace activists within Israel as "left-wing".

Arab FMs Threaten: No More Normalization or Peace Talks

Arab foreign ministers met in Cairo this week to discuss the clash between Israeli troops and terrorist activists on board a Turkish ship headed for Gaza in defiance of the Israeli blockade. The ministers decided to “break the Israeli siege imposed on Gaza.”

The blockade should be ended “in any legitimate way,” including “resistance,” the ministers said. “Resistance” is often used as a code word for violence or terrorism.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You've got to love how the Israeli press turns "humanitarian activists" into "terrorist activists."

Writing like this reminds me that George Orwell was very much more than a superb writer; he was a prophet for the latter part of the 20th century, and the first part of the 21st century.

Thousands protest flotilla killings in London and Istanbul

Thousands of protesters took to the streets of Istanbul and London today over the killings of nine Turkish activists aboard a flotilla of aid ships bound for Gaza.

Anger in Turkey over last week’s deaths showed no sign of abating as leaked post-mortem results showed that the activists were killed by a hail of 9mm bullets, many fired at close range. Five of the nine were shot in the head.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Tel Aviv: this issue is not going away, period, end of discussion.

You will have no protection

"You will have no protection"

-- Medgar Evers to Civil Rights Activists in Mississippi, shortly before he was assassinated, 12 June, 1963

My heart is breaking; but I do not mind.

For one thing, as soon as I wrote those words I was able to weep. Which I had not been able to do since learning of the attack by armed Israeli commandos on defenseless peace activists carrying aid to Gaza who tried to fend them off using chairs and sticks. I am thankful to know what it means to be good; I know that the people of the Freedom Flotilla are/were in some cases, some of the best people on earth. They have not stood silently by and watched the destruction of others, brutally, sustained, without offering themselves, weaponless except for their bodies, to the situation.

Erasing International Law in Israel's Gaza Flotilla Attack

The comatose political debate over Israel’s actions is hardly surprising to those who critically follow U.S. public discourse on the Middle East. American narratives have long privileged Israel over its Arab neighbors, and this case is no exception. Still, the growth of domestic or international pressure may play a positive role in pushing the U.S. to take a more critical stance toward Israel. Whether this will happen, however, remains to be seen.

Israel, Nazi propaganda chief Göebbels would have been proud of you

As the true nature of the massacre on the Mavi Marmara becomes apparent now that witnesses can speak out, so too is the scale of the pre-planned propaganda blitz conducted by the Israelis, a blitz that was launched in tandem with the armed attack.

Clearly planned well in advance of the attack (right down to paintball guns)—and with the able assistance of the Western media—Israel has shown how reality can be manipulated; day turned into night, wrong into right, black into white.

Just how well the Western media covers for the actions of the rogue state of Israel can be seen by comparing the BBC report, also from Turkey, with the Zaman Today article quoted from above.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Few countries have mastered such an Orwellian use of language - or media - as has Israel.

The fawning, Pavlovian American media, in lock-step with precisely what Israel has told them to say, disgusts every thinking person on the planet who is on the side of truth and justice.

Illinois - A State In Crisis

Illinois is a microcosm of the nation. Facing the largest per capital budget deficit in America, equal to half its operating budget, it's in deep crisis, one of many problems being poverty, the issue the Heartland Alliance addressed in its May 5 report titled, "2010 Report on Illinois Poverty," deepening under budget-balancing social safety net cuts, making a bad situation worse for growing numbers throughout the state, suffering under dire economic conditions, exacerbated by bad public policy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

American citizens are of no use or value to their government, except as an allegedly endless supply of tax money for wars without end, the betterment of their own personal lifestyles, and unlimited funds and arms for Israel.

Russia builds listening post sparking fears of Georgia strike

Construction of the outpost near the town of Tskhinvali, capital of the enclave, has provoked Georgian warnings that Russia is actively preparing for a repeat of the 2008 August war that proved a disastrous humiliation for Western-backed democracy.

The strategic potential of the base, which would stand further south than any other Russian listening post, is much greater than has previously been suggested.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This installation may well be less about any potential strike against Georgia, and more about a potential war against Iran.

Soldier with Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Punished by Army

Iraq war veteran Eric Jasinski, after seeking treatment for his post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), is being punished by the Army.

Jasinski turned himself in to the Army late last year, after having gone absent without leave (AWOL) in order to seek help for his PTSD. Help, he told Truthout, he was not receiving from the Army, even after requesting assistance on multiple occasions.

He was court-martialed and jailed for 25 days for having gone AWOL, during which time he was escorted in shackles to therapy sessions for his PTSD. After being released from prison, he was informed that he would be given an other-than-honorable discharge, which means he is likely ineligible for full PTSD treatment from the Veterans' Administration (VA) after he leaves the service.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I strongly suspect that the real reason we are seeing such a massive explosion of diagnoses of PTSD, is that the soldiers coping with this issue have had a very painful jolt of moral clarity, during which they realize that this time, with these wars and occupations, their country is not on the right side of history.

Bilderberg Agenda Revealed: Globalists In Crisis, Supportive Of Attack On Iran

Saturday, June 5, 2010
The 2010 Bilderberg agenda has been revealed by veteran Bilderberg sleuth Jim Tucker and it paints a picture of crisis for the globalists, who are furious at the increased exposure their gatherings have received in recent years, as well as being dismayed at their failure to rescue both the euro and the failing carbon tax agenda, but more alarmingly according to Tucker, the majority of Bilderberg members are now in favor of military air strikes on Iran.

American Free Press muckraker Tucker has proven routinely accurate with the information he obtains from sources inside Bilderberg, which makes this year’s revelations all the more intriguing.

Banks Seized by Regulators in Nebraska, Mississippi, Illinois

Three banks with total deposits of almost $2.3 billion were seized by regulators amid losses stemming from soured real-estate loans, raising to 81 the number of U.S. lenders that have collapsed this year.

Regulators are closing banks at the fastest pace since the 1990s amid loan losses tied to real estate. The FDIC’s list of “problem” lenders is the longest since 1992. FDIC Chairman Sheila Bair said the confidential list rose to 775 banks with $431 billion in assets in the first quarter. That’s an increase from 702 banks with $402.8 billion in assets at the end of the fourth quarter.

This is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg.

Obama secretly deploys US special forces to 75 countries across world

President Obama has secretly sanctioned a huge increase in the number of US special forces carrying out search-and-destroy missions against al-Qaeda around the world, with American troops now operating in 75 countries.

When Mr Obama took office US special forces were operating in fewer than 60 countries. In the past 18 months he has ordered a big expansion in Yemen and the Horn of Africa — known areas of strong al-Qaeda activity — and elsewhere in the Middle East, central Asia and Africa.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Note to President Obama; the alleged "Al-Qaeda" have nothing to do with the buildup of Special Forces, particularly in the Middle East and the Horn of Africa, as you well know.

This is about the US wanting and needing the natural resources up which, or adjacent to which, the countries being infiltrated with US Special Forces, are sitting.

Afghanistan is a perfect example, literally cursed by its geography. Afghanistan was a target for invasion and occupation because it was the perfect place to install the pipelines with which to potentially control Eurasian oil.

There is only one small problem here, however, nearly 9 years on; the Afghan people want their country back, and are doing everything they can thing of to cause that to happen.

I would like to remind you, Mr. President, that as late as August of 2001, the Bush Administration was negotiating with the Taliban government on the rights to the pipeline routes, but considered the price being asked "too high". Then, conveniently, we had 9/11, and we were off and running with a war of occupation, which has still not brought about the outcome of "pacifying" the Afghan people enough to install the pipelines.

This is what our kids have been fighting for, getting maimed for life for, and dying for. Apparently, this price, in American blood and American money, is not considered "too high", either by the Bush Administration, or the Obama Administration.

I would also like to point out, Mr. President, that Russia and China have been making deals, rather than waging wars, to secure the energy their countries will need for the future of their countries.

Perhaps, just perhaps, the US has something to learn here.
