Flotilla Cover-up: The New York Times Accused

For the past month, the alternative media have sought concrete evidence that the mainstream U.S. media, including the New York Times, willfully aided Israel's cover-up of information about their Gaza flotilla attack. Here are the results of that research: http://usmediaandisrael.com/?p=437

Senator Joseph Lieberman,claims that the Jewish state is their greatest ally, if they knew that Israeli agents planted firebombs in American installations in Egypt in 1954 in an attempt to undermine relations between Nasser and the United States; that Israel murdered 34 American servicemen in a deliberate attack on the USS Liberty on June 8, 1967; that Israeli espionage, most notably Jonathan Pollard’s spying, has done tremendous damage to American interests; that five Mossad agents were filming and celebrating as the Twin Towers collapsed on September 11, 2001;

I Have a Dream…” I Dream of Liberation of Palestine.

Nahida the Exiled Palestinian
If Palestinians were to comply and abide by the rules of the game as defined by the colonial “super-powers” the sheer word “Palestine” would have disappeared by now. There would be no mention of us anywhere, and yet we achieved already so much. We have more than ever the strength to resist, to dream and to force our way to expose and defeat the criminal Zionist project.

Israeli Nuclear Espionage: The Art of Keeping America at Risk for Fun and Profit

Israel agreed to sell South Africa nuclear weapons.

More than that, it makes any aid America gives Israel illegal. If Israel is nuclear, which is now official, and in violation of international treaties, just as with Iraq and Iran, then America has to demand inspections and disarmament. There is no choice. This is the law. Law for Iran, law for Iraq is also law for Israel. Israel has expected this day for years.

Book review: ‘Letters from Palestine’: a must-read

By Stuart Littlewood

Letters From Palestine

By Kenneth Ring

I seldom read books from cover to cover. But when Kenneth Ring sent me his Letters from Palestine with a note saying “Here’s my baby,” I couldn’t put it down.

Ken presents a collection of personal stories from Palestinians, inside and outside the occupied territories, that provide penetrating insights – sometimes harrowing, sometimes funny, always fascinating – into their daily lives and thoughts. It would not surprise me if, in time, these accounts became inscribed in Palestinian folklore.

The CIA/Likud Sinking of Jimmy Carter

By Robert Parry (A Special Report) Veterans Today

As the Official Story of the 1980 October Surprise case crumbles – with new revelations that key evidence was hidden from investigators of a congressional task force and that internal doubts were suppressed – history must finally confront the troubling impression that remains: that disgruntled elements of the CIA and Israel’s Likud hardliners teamed up to remove a U.S. president from office.

Indeed, it is this disturbing conclusion – perhaps even more than the idea of a Republican dirty trick – that may explain the longstanding and determined cover-up of this political scandal.

PROPAGANDA ALERT - Unemployment Extension Unsuccessful; Americans turn on Each Other

After researchers from U.S. Chronicle reviewed comments posted by users on opencongress.org — a site dedicated to aggregating data and information about Congress from the web — there appears to be an increase in the number of users who verbally abuse other users seeking an unemployment extension.

One user posted a comment asking why people were dependent on the government to help them. The user further went on to state, “The whining for government benefits is embarrassing and pathetic.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This feels like one of those infamous PR campaigns the government mounts to trick Americans into believing their neighbors are totally unsympathetic to the plight of Americans driven into joblessness, homelessness, and bankruptcy. This is just a propaganda trick to help the government evade public condemnation for the chronic mismanagement and looting that wrecked what was once the strongest economy on Earth.

Nobody wants a handout. What We The People want, what We The People DEMAND, is that the government give back that which it took away; the manufacturing that made this nation great in the first place.

Gordon Duff: America, Apartheid Or Apocalypse?

To millions of Americans, the “end times” seem to be on us.

The BP disaster in the Gulf may leave 25% of America virtually uninhabitable, eco-systems destroyed for sure but maybe much more, a destroyed sea floor, toxic gas clouds moving inland and warnings of something worse, a geological disaster of biblical proportions sitting offshore like a ticking time bomb. Millions of American believe the president is a foreign born Muslim, a puppet of the terrorists while millions believe he is working for Israel. Every speech, every state visit, everything done is seen to support one side or another, sometimes both. The destruction of the American presidency is only part of it, part of a program of racial division, fear, hate and a descent into class warfare and violence.

Balles: Sometimes they tell me to shut up

Born and raised in America, I learned that my country was built on outstanding principles propped up by a great constitution. When I saw those principles violated and the constitution ignored, I complained. At times, I was told to shut up.

The Vietnam War was well underway when I started teaching at a California university. I learned as much as I could about the war, believed it was wrong and joined the protesters. My untenured position was at risk for joining the peaceniks.

I also learned that Arabs and Israelis were more alike than different when expressing their antagonism toward each other. One of each happened to be in a class I was teaching. Each would sidle up to me, separately and at different times, to explain what was wrong with the other.

America is a state of mind

BY DEBBIE MENON

THE events that have unfolded in the past decade, we would never have thought would have occurred 10 years ago. Elements of changes in world power, focus upon the Middle East, battle cries of holy wars, nuclear threats, thousands of innocents taken in a single morning, and the list goes on.

Now, I am battling the impulse to generalize my anger at to “be prejudiced” against all Americans in general.

How can that be? I definitely know that most Americans are decent, good hearted, peaceful people who, while gullible perhaps, do not generally advocate the mass murder of others in the name of war on terror or war on anything. But in my emotions they are and my heart aches and I am angry at “Americans”.

American’s Need to Pay Attention and Get Some Skin in the Game

MFSO says “Seize the Moment” – Veterans Today

The reverberations from General McChrystal’s interview in Rolling Stone are just beginning. It will likely gain more attention as the 24-hour news outlets dig in to cover it from every conceivable angle. The circumstances that have been revealed by General McChrystal’s lapse in judgment reflects more than an out-of-control general in Afghanistan. It’s about a failed strategy that puts young men and women – our family members – at risk.

This is an opportunity to get our voices included in the discussion. As military family members who have loved ones who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan, our perspective has impact!

A Widow Mourns, An Army Lies

Last week Palestine Monitor reported that Israeli police shot and killed Shu’fat resident 39-year-old Ziad Jilani in the East Jerusalem neighbourhood of Wadi Joz. Now his widow, a U.S. citizen, reflects on her husband’s life and death, and the journey he’s taken her on. Reporting from Kara Newhouse.

Moira Jilani remembers her experience vividly, “I felt happy that day. We were going to go out and celebrate, because the children finished exams the day before,” she tells me from her brother-in-law’s house, where she’s spent her days since Ziad’s death on June 11. “We were cleaning, getting rid of the winter clothes. We had the music loud, the girls were dancing. We were ready to leave.”

The Global Political Awakening and the New World Order

The Technological Revolution and the Future of Freedom, Part 1
by Andrew Gavin Marshall at Globalresearch.ca.

There is a new and unique development in human history that is taking place around the world; it is unprecedented in reach and volume, and it is also the greatest threat to all global power structures: the ‘global political awakening.’ The term was coined by Zbigniew Brzezinski, and refers to the fact that, as Brzezinski wrote:

For the first time in history almost all of humanity is politically activated, politically conscious and politically interactive. Global activism is generating a surge in the quest for cultural respect and economic opportunity in a world scarred by memories of colonial or imperial domination.[1]

Israelis, Turkish Jews, and Kurdish Jews Behind Insurgency in Turkey

Operation Cage: a case study in Israeli false flag tactics
By Wayne Madsen — Online Journal Contributing Writer

WMR) – Top Turkish government and intelligence sources told WMR in Ankara and Istanbul that Turkish intelligence has obtained evidence that Israeli intelligence is squarely behind repeated Ergenekon “deep state” plots aimed at overthrowing the Turkish government of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, including Operations Sledgehammer and Cage.

Israeli MOSSAD accused of attempting to assassinate Erdogan

The Israeli intelligence agency Mossad has failed in an attempt to assassinate Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, a Jordanian weekly says.

Informed sources in Turkey say that the Mossad plot has been foiled by the country’s security forces, al-Manar quoted a report in the most recent edition of the Al-Majd weekly as saying.

There are also reports that Israel has been trying to incite violence inside Turkey by lending support to the militants of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).

Earlier in June, Sedat Laciner, the head of the International Strategic Research Organization — a Turkish think tank — said Mossad agents and Israeli military retirees had been sighted providing training to PKK militants in Iraqi Kurdistan.

Cultural roots of Zionist domination of Britain and the United States

Gilad Atzmon views the historical and cultural roots of Zionist domination of Western politics, especially in Britain and the United States, tracing the Israel stooges’ tools of choice – political donations, think tanks and media control – to the tales of the Book of Esther and Purim.

”If our media outlets want us to believe in their “impartiality”, they had better identify the enemy within. How many Iraqis will need to die before the penny drops? How many peace activist should die on the high seas before we all say NO MORE? How many British workers will need to lose their jobs, homes and hopes before we can allow ourselves to say NO to Zionist wars and to their advocates in our midst?”

BBC HARDTALK with Kenneth O’Keefe on the Israeli Attack on FLOTILLA to Gaza [VIDEO]

An articulate and angry Kenneth O’Keefe, in a pretty intense interview, with BBC. He was on the MV Mavi Marmara ship carrying aid to Gaza, when Israeli commandos raided the ship, killing nine peace activists onboard and wounding several. Kenneth claims he helped disarm the Israeli commandos. He starts of at the very outset by stating, “Palestinians are killed everyday by Israelis and we never hear about it in the Media.” A classic BBC HARDTALK, every bit worth watching.

It's Islamic terror, Turkish terror, Hamas terror, Islamic Jihad terror, Hezbollah terror, activist terror, war on terror, Palestinian terror, Muslim terror, Iranian terror, Syrian terror, anti-Semitic terror...

But I am doing the Israelis an injustice. Their lexicon, and that of the White House – most of the time – and our reporters' lexicon, is the same. Yes, let's be fair to the Israelis. Their lexicon goes like this: Terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It gets even better than that! Israel actually creates and funds the "terrorists" they use to scare Americans into turning a blind eye to the theft of Palestine, and of course to keep sending their money to "poor helpless Israel."

Social Engineering: are we all being hoodwinked

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here is the good news. All Social Engineering is based on the theory that environment is the primary determinant of behavior, an idea championed in Margaret Mead's book "Coming of Age in Samoa." This book is a foundation of the liberal idea that the human mind can be re-engineered by re-engineering the world around it. However, Mead was as much a victim of her ambitions and biases as the present day global warming scientists. The Samoan women she spent time with picked up on what Mead seemed to want to believe, and being polite, told Mead what Mead wanted to hear. Mead never checked her facts, and spun a tale of an idyllic paradise free from the societal angst of adolescence that is as fake and phony as the photos of "drowning" polar bears. That decades of liberal tinkering with people had not produced the desires result should demonstrate that the foundation theory is invalid, but like epicycles and the Big Bang, far too many academic careers rest on this myth for it to go quietly into that good night. So, the tyrants can socially engineer all they want; it is doomed to fail.

Post 1776, the practiced the “New American” tyranny against what remained of the Native American, and the Spanish Colonial in North America. And when they were all subdued or brought to heel, went on to export it overseas, product which they have continued to export ever since, in an ever greater degree.

We have become the tyrant which we overcame to escape, and we have assumed his mantle and the hatred of our own victims of tyranny.

The Israeli Media’s Flotilla Fail

If the raid of the Gaza Freedom Flotilla was a disaster for the Israel Defense Forces, its aftermath demonstrated an equally bewildering performance by the Israeli media. The IDF Spokesman’s Office churned out one misleading claim after another, each one more implausible than the next, seeking to implant in the public’s mind a version of events that bore little relation to reality. To a degree, this was to be expected; but it was startling to see how some of Israel’s most respected reporters lined up to serve as military stenographers, barely challenging the IDF’s rapidly changing versions of events.

Why they hate America

By Paul Balles

Pakistani writer Mohsin Hamid, tells of a polite Oklahoman who held a copy of his latest novel, “The Reluctant Fundamentalist,” and examined the face on its cover, comparing it to Hamid’s.

The Oklahoman then said to the Muslim writer, nodding once as if to dip the brim of an imaginary hat: “So tell me, sir. Why do they hate us?”

Hamid then goes on to voice the propaganda he’d been fed, attributing it to envy, adding, “The richest, most powerful country in the world attracts the jealousy of others in much the same way that the richest, most powerful man in a small town attracts the jealousy of others.”

Of course, the Washington Post who published Hamid’s article devoured his explanation as if he was serving them and the country a lesson in deserved pride.

Their newest article, ‘Israel and the Surrender of the West’ tears into the notion of “world opinion” as if a global view is some kind of liability. I guess it is for Israel after the deadly flotilla incident[1].

Flotilla Cover-up by the New York Times for Israel

The NY Times has a long history of pro-Israel reporting of events in the Middle East. One notable illustration is their coverage of Israel’s 1967 attack on the USS Liberty that killed and wounded over 200 American sailors. The Times‘ only account of this deliberate, hour-long assault — a brief summary buried on page 19 of the paper.

The question is who within the New York Times ordered the most recent journalistic stonewalling and kowtowing to Israeli interests. Might it be publisher/owner Arthur Sulzberger, Jr.? Rank-and-file employees and journalists at the Times must be truly embarrassed, even shamed by the actions and inactions of their employer.

Flotilla Cover-up by the New York Times for Israel

Gulf Oil Catastrophe - Epic Lies And Deceit

Gulf Oil Catastrophe - Epic Lies And Deceit

I write this as a catastrophe survivor. I write this knowing that with every US catastrophe, there is not one single person in charge, in ANY capacity, who will tell us the truth, who will step up to the plate, be honest, look out for our well being and safety...."We, the people" do not figure into this. What does figure into this are greed, lies, and massive deceit. A corporation's bottom line (be it Big Pharma, chemical companies, or the banksters who are looting everything we have) is profit --at all costs. We are all expendable for their bottom line. Our well being or our safety are not part of this equation.

Israeli Blockade 'Eased' Only in English, but U.S. Media Eat It Up

The office of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu released a statement yesterday that promised to "liberalize the system by which civilian goods enter Gaza." The announcement from Israel's security cabinet came after widespread international pressure on Israel following a deadly Israeli naval raid on a humanitarian flotilla trying to break the three-year old blockade of Gaza.

U.S. media echoed the Israeli press release in headlines like "Israel to Ease Gaza Land Blockade" (New York Times, 6/17/10) and "Israel Eases Restrictions on Goods Bound for Gaza Strip" (Washington Post, 6/18/10). (CNN--6/17/10--at least attributed the claim in its "Israel to Ease Blockade of Gaza, Cabinet Says.")

History Made June 20th in San Francisco–Dockworkers Refuse to Cross Picket Line to Unload Israeli Cargo ship in Oakland

Message from the Palestinian General Federation of Trade Unions(PGFTU)

To our respected sisters, brothers and comrades in the trade unions, labor councils and workers’ organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area:

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Since the beginning of the workers’ struggles in your country – the United States of America – international solidarity has been a constant part of workers’ organizing and struggle in solidarity with workers and people facing injustice everywhere in the world. We, the workers and the people of Palestine are suffering under oppression of the Israeli occupation of our land and people. This occupation began long ago, the longest-lasting occupation of the modern era.

Cutting Through the Confusion about Israel/Palestine

This is long but worth a read...

By Richard Forer

[A letter I wrote to a college student who had written the Coalition to Stop $30 Billion to Israel asking the group to remove a billboard that said "Tell Congress. Stop Killing Children. No More Military Aid to Israel." The billboard was erected in Albuquerque in the Spring of 2009 after the Gaza catastrophe. I was the spokesperson.]

How to Win a War When Losing? Dialogue with Taliban…

By Debbie Menon

No, dialogue is NOT a solution! It is merely another, quite common, much overused, abused, and never quite successful method of attempting, or pretending to attempt, to find or describe a solution; and it is usually compromised by bad faith on the part of one, two or all parties. Furthermore, it takes the bad faith of but one participant to thoroughly compromise it, and turn it into a strategic tool for forestalling the search for a solution, perpetuating the status quo, or worse.

History has demonstrated this.

CNN's Wolf Blitzer Unhappy About Anti-Israel CNN Viewers

Pay very careful attention to the tone Blitzer takes here when he is subject to listening to a plethora of anti-Israel comments voiced by CNN viewers:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Poor widdle Blitzer doesn't like that Americans are more worried about America than Israel!

My comment about the government applies equally well to the media.

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

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

So, starting today, please boycott anyone on the news supporting Israel's "right" to starve the Gazans, or who support and protect the nation that attacked Americans in international waters. Turn them off, switch the channels.

The good news is that if you are using a cable box, that box will register your change of the channel and report it to the ratings services. If enough people turn off Blitzer (or any other Israeli media whore) the report of that phenomenon will e on the programming department's desk in just a few days.

You can change history by changing your channel. Pretty cool, huh?

Limbaugh Represents a Deep and Serious Pathology in our Society

Limbaugh is paid to divert the frustration, anger and confusion of whites – who have been shafted by the Reagan Revolution's elevation of America's relative tiny super wealthy population and predatory global corporations – toward scapegoats, usually of the swarthy, female, or gay side, not to mention the all-encompassing target of “liberals.” To whites who are economically dispossessed by the Reagan redistribution of income to the wealthy, “liberals” are to blame for taking their now reduced income – if they are lucky enough to have a job – and, according to Rush, redistributing it to the poor (of course, his bilious innuendo is pointed squarely at minorities, even though most people on welfare and unemployment are white, but we're dealing with propaganda fiction here.)

Most Americans and Europeans Support Impending Attack on Iran

“Americans are among the most supportive of a military option to deal with Iran with 66 per cent of those who oppose a nuclear-armed Iran saying they would consider the use of force, a figure second only to Nigeria’s 71 per cent.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~snip~~~~~

In Europe the numbers are lower — 59 per cent in France think it is OK to mass murder Iranians, while 51 percent of Germans, 50 percent of Spaniards, and 48 percent of Britons approve of bombing Iran. Germans are more than two generations removed from the horrors of Hitler and the bombing of their cities and this in part probably explains why they support such lunacy

New York Times Planted Story on Afghan Mineral Wealth Designed to Prolong US Occupation, Spur Neocon-Backed Petraeus Presidential Candidacy

To provide a new and spurious economic looting argument for making the US occupation of Afghanistan virtually endless, and to advance the candidacy of General David Petraeus as the principal neocon warmonger candidate for president on the Republican ticket in 2012 – these are the purposes of the story planted in the June 13, 2010 New York Times under the byline of James Risen, who is acting as stenographer for the neocons in the great tradition of his predecessor Judith Miller. In retrospect, this article may well be seen as the opening gun of an overt push to place General Petraeus in the White House in 2012 as the new Field Marshal von Hindenburg.

Australian Unions act to isolate Israel

The movement for Australian union action against Israel is gaining strength after the apartheid state’s latest murderous attack on the unarmed aid flotilla to Gaza.

The South Coast Labour Council (SCLC) and the New South Wales and Australian Capital Territory branches of the Australian Services Union have joined the Construction Forestry Mining Energy Union in committing to the international boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) campaign against the aggressive Israeli state.

Australian unions and peak bodies have also called on members to attend the many protest actions.

Submitted To:

The Most Honorable Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu

In response to the world’s outrage (except the U.S.) against Israel’s May 31st murderous attack on peace activists aboard the “Free Gaza Flotilla” delivering humanitarian aid to besieged Gaza, Benjamin Netanyahu and his Cabinet on Monday, June 14, 2010 voted in favor of creating an internal commission called the “Independent Public Commission” that includes three Israelis and two foreign observers to investigate the legality and circumstances of the IDF’s raid on the Flotilla that led to the death of nine Turkish peace activists.

ALAN HART: Zionism’s Colonial Enterprise Is Doomed, but…

Ronen Bergman, a senior military and political analyst for the Israeli daily Yedioth Ahronoth, recently wrote what I consider to be one of the most important articles for decades on the subject of the mindset of the Zionist state’s military and political leaders. It was reproduced in the Wall Street Journal under the headline Siege Fatigue and the Flotilla Mistake.

Getting to the main thrust of his analysis, Bergman wrote this (my emphasis added):

GORDON DUFF: THE CARDBOARD LOTHARIOS

ANALYZING STAGED WORLD CONFLICT

In 2006, North Korea exploded a plutonium based nuclear weapon, an unsuccessful test of either a “found” nuke in poor repair, or something poorly designed. America had predicted that they were at least five years from this capability, we always hear the same story, everyone is five years from having nuclear weapons. On May 25th, 2009, North Korea exploded its second bomb, its first clearly identifiable nuclear weapon, a “Hiroshima sized” bomb, tiny by US standards. What we didn’t say is that the signature of this bomb had been seen before.

Israel's propaganda war

Israel's ability to shape public opinion regarding the flotilla massacre is intimately linked to its long-standing campaign to manipulate global public perceptions of what has been happening in Palestine all along since Israel's birth in 1947.

Its policy remains consistent. It is a successful strategy always focusing on Jewish victimhood. The success is rooted in a political reality. Where knowledge is limited, and the desire and means to learn and understand the complex reality or issues doesn't exist, public opinion can be manipulated and shaped by whoever generates the most powerful symbols.

IPCC consensus on climate change was phoney, says IPCC insider

The UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change misled the press and public into believing that thousands of scientists backed its claims on manmade global warming, according to Mike Hulme, a prominent climate scientist and IPCC insider. The actual number of scientists who backed that claim was “only a few dozen experts,” he states in a paper for Progress in Physical Geography, co-authored with student Martin Mahony.

“Claims such as ‘2,500 of the world’s leading scientists have reached a consensus that human activities are having a significant influence on the climate’ are disingenuous,” the paper states unambiguously, adding that they rendered “the IPCC vulnerable to outside criticism.”

Cashiering Helen Thomas

The termination of Helen Thomas' 62-year long career as a pioneering, no-nonsense newswoman was swift and intriguingly merciless.

The event leading to her termination began when she was sitting on a White House bench under oppressive summer heat. The 89-year-old hero of honest journalism and women's rights, the scourge of dissembling presidents and White House press secretaries, answered a passing visitor's question about Israel with a snappish comment worded in a way she didn't mean; she promptly apologized in writing. Recorded without permission on a hand video, the brief exchange, that included a defense of dispossessed Palestinians, went internet viral on Friday, June 4.

Obama Plans To Sneak Through Carbon Tax By Stealth

President Obama is planning to sneak through his job-killing, economy wrecking carbon tax by stealth according to the Washington Post, by passing a weakened bill and then adding in cap and trade provisions after the heat is off following the November elections.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US Government, the same government which has failed its oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, but is working hard to protect and defend that foreign nation that attacked Americans in international waters, is addicted to your money. Having ruined the economy with corporate giveaways, sees driving you down into Gaza-esque poverty and taking the surplus for themselves as their best course of action. As we noted yesterday, Obama is spending a billion dollars on ways to get Americans to give up cars and go back to bicycles or walking, just like they do in Gaza.

So, we are out of time, You need to decide. Will you allow the government to loot your life for their own addiction to money? Or is it time to stop throwing good money after bad.

Terry Gross has no empathy for Palestinians

Terry Gross once ended an interview with Palestinian human rights lawyer Raja Shehadeh by asking whether he wanted to "mov[e] someplace else so that you wouldn't be subjected to this... Israeli incursion." Shehadeh retorted gently, "life...under Occupation" has "never been as difficult and as dangerous...and as frustrating as it is now. But, no, I will not leave." NPR transcript here.

Terry Gross boasts in her new ad that "often when I'm interviewing people on Fresh Air, they give me a different way of looking at the world," but her condescension to Shehadeh, a founder of Al-Haq (The Truth), shows how blind she is to Palestinian rights under International Law and how much she assumes Palestinians must make way for Israel's expansion.

Fox “news” continues CBS, ABC, CNN propaganda to attack Iran: today’s CIA Operation Mockingbird

In the video clip from Fox below, Bill Kristol advocates US military attack on Iran because he predicts that Israel will attack Iran. This is propaganda for an unlawful war for the following “emperor has no clothes” obvious reasons. Fox "reporting" is also a manipulative variation of the same war drone I’ve documented from CBS, ABC, and CNN.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The fact is that absent a new World War, the US Government is finished (actually, a new world war will finish the US, but at least DC will go out with a wild party!)

The conventional view in Washington is that nothing revives fanatical patriotism among American taxpayers like a good bloodbath against, well, it doesn't really matter. We are going after this Arabs because Israel said to and because the Germans have been up at bat twice and are sick of being the global whipping boy.

The sad reality is that we cannot stop the next World War because all it takes is the least mentally stable leader to launch one missile and the whole world catches on fire, then the slaves are put back to work rebuilding it all again.

But what we can do and must do is deprive the attacker of the illusion that the intended target for invasion is somehow the villain.

Israel and the US media attempted to blame Turkey for Israel's attack on the aid flotilla in International waters. This is a repeat of the propaganda Bush used when he attacked Iraq, or Hitler used when he attacked Poland; "They made us do it, Mommy!"

‘Democracy’ Means the U.S. and Israel Approve

Thomas Friedman sure knows how to flip reality on its head. In his New York Times op-ed column today, Friedman hops on the bandwagon of bashing Turkey for "joining the Hamas-Hezbollah-Iran resistance front against Israel."

Friedman accuses Turkish Prime Minister Recip Tayyip Erdogan of no longer promoting democracy and instead being more focused on "praising Hamas instead of the more responsible Palestinian Authority in the West Bank, which is actually building the foundations of a Palestinian state."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ignoring the fact that HAMAS won the elections, right?

Here is the Israeli modus operandi.

Israsel creates and funds "opposition" parties in Palestine to prevent any one party from being seen as the leader of all Palestine. When Yassir Arafat led the PLO and PLO began to accept Israeli terms towards peace, Israel's Shin Bet created and funded HAMAS so that Israel could say, "We do not know who to talk to; there are two governments in Palestine!"

Then Arafat died (or was murdered), and Israel dropped supporting HAMAS. HAMAS, rather than fade away leaving Palestine in Chaos as Israel wanted, decided that since it was now the defacto government of Palestine they would act like one, much to the annoyance of the Israeli sponsors who had betrayed them.

So, Israel played the same game all over, creating and funding FATAH so that Israel could say, "We do not know who to talk to; there are two governments in Palestine!" And as soon as HAMAS is gone and FATAH is the power, Israel will drop support for Abbas and create yet a new opposition party to keep Palestine divided and conquered.

Stephen Lendman : End Gaza Siege

Resisting the Occupation and Siege
Millions worldwide demand it. So does the Arab League, according to an Al Jazeera June 13 report quoting Amr Moussa, Arab League secretary-general, saying:

“This blockade….must be lifted and must be broken and the Arab League decision is very clear in this regard.”

On June 13, Moussa commented after visiting Gaza for talks with Hamas Prime Minister, Ismail Haniyeh, Haaretz reporting he’s the highest Arab official to do so since Hamas’ 2006 election, after which an Israeli/West embargo followed, then the June 2007 siege.

Moussa entered through Rafah after Egypt reopened it following the Freedom Flotilla massacre, saying it will continue indefinitely.

According to Haaretz:

Wiles : Rise People, Rise

By Rich Wiles

Through the recent murderous events in international waters Israel has once again shown its true colours and its total disregard for humanity. From the global reaction over the last week it seems that, for once, a huge majority of people around the world have seen these attacks in a clear light. Let us call a massacre a massacre. Whilst these atrocities have clearly appalled millions of people, the inhumanity of the Zionist regime should have come as no surprise, for this is nothing new.

Australian Parliament : Julia Irwin MP’s Adjournment debate speech and Minister Craig Emerson’s reply 16June10

MUST READ:

Editors Note: Mrs Julia Irwin’s MP adjournment debate speech on 16th June, 2010 in the Australian Parliament and the Government minister Dr Craig Emerson’s shameful disassociation on behalf of the government at the conclusion of the adjournment debate.

If Craig Emerson’s comment reflects the Labor Party’s policy on this matter as Israel and its merciless treatment of the whole nation of Palestine is clearly reprehensible, then sadly the compromised parliamentarians both in Australia and in the US Congress is an indication that Israel has captured and is dictating the foreign policies of both countries and whereas one could once have expected an independent stance on matters of importance from Australia, such as the Middle East, this appears not to be the case.

PRESS TV: Franklin Lamb ‘Israeli inquiry into aid attack doomed to fail’

On May 31, Israeli navy commandos launched a deadly attack on the Gaza Freedom Flotilla in international waters as the aid convoy was heading toward the besieged Gaza Strip, killing 20 people.

Defying repeated international calls for a transparent and credible probe into the incident, Israel’s cabinet approved the establishment of an “independent public commission” to probe the legal aspects of the deadly operation.

What follows is Press TV’s interview with Dr. Franklin Lamb, an international lawyer, about the investigation into the attack.

Press TV: Dr. Lamb, will the one-sided investigation by Israel be regarded as a legitimate one by the international community?
