Did 2009 mark the beginning of the end of Israel?

One particular event cast a sickening pall over the entire year, and in doing so reminded us that our world became ever more violent and perverse in 2009. Although this event itself ended in January, its fallout continued and will be felt for years to come. I am referring, of course, to “Operation Cast Lead,” Israel’s attempted liquidation of the Gaza ghetto. The event is significant not only because it was premeditated slaughter, but also because it did incalculable damage did to Israel’s propaganda industry.

Britain’s Foreign Office wimps surrender to Israeli thugs

The British public must be wondering what has happened to the nation’s backbone – and its moral compass – when they see news items like these.

British Foreign Secretary David Miliband yesterday apologized to MK [Member of the Knesset] Tzipi Livni and Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman for the arrest warrant issued against Livni in London earlier this week. He also promised Lieberman to begin working immediately to change the UK laws that enable the issue of arrest warrants against Israeli officials accused of war crimes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Remember last November when a British TV Documentary described the Israel Lobby in England as just as powerful and manipulative as its American counter-part? Remember how Jewish groups insisted that the British Israel Lobby was just a myth and an anti-Semitic one at that?

And now the British government has not only withdrawn the War Crimes warrant issued against Tzipi Livni but will now change British law to make future warrants against Israelis impossible ... no matter what war crimes they commit.

Still think Britain's Israel Lobby is just a myth?

8 Cast Lead IDF heroes get decorated

Eight IDF soldiers received medals of honor on Wednesday evening for heroism they showed during Operation Cast Lead last year.

OC Southern Command Maj.-Gen. Yoav Galant, who presented the soldiers with the decorations, said that during the incursion into Gaza "the IDF reached its goals. The enemy was badly beaten. IDF soldiers acted out of faith in the justice of our cause, and their moral norms are praiseworthy."

Galant told the veterans that "In the tough hours of the trial through fire you bravely and resiliently persevered. You are a lighthouse of morality and values."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"...a lighthouse of morality and values." ?!?!?

So this is how Israel characterizes 8 war criminals whose primary job was to kill and maim as many Gazan Palestinians as possible during Operation Cast Lead, including children?!?!?!?

George Orwell is puking in his grave right now, at the way language used in this ceremony has been tortured and twisted beyond belief to convey the diametric opposite of what the IDF soldiers did during Operation Cast Lead to innocent men, women, and children.

Childhood in ruins

Ghiada's father, Atta Mohammed abu Elaish, rushed into the room. "I saw bodies without heads and legs. I saw my daughter. I saw her mother screaming." He ran outside to call an ambulance. "The Israelis stopped the ambulances 250 metres from the house. Some boys from the street came to start ferrying the bodies and the injured out of the building."

The attack was one of countless assaults during Israel's 23 days of war on Gaza – Operation Cast Lead – that began on 27 December. But it was also one of the most notorious because Ghiada's uncle – Aya's father – was a doctor who worked in Israeli hospitals and was well known to Israeli viewers for advocating peace and reconciliation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In the killing off innocent men, women, kids, and peacemakers, the Israeli demonstrates,as clearly as possible, that it has absolutely no desire for peace whatsoever

The only thing the Israeli government is interested in is increasing territory, by any means necessary.

Nato appeals to Russia for more help in Afghanistan

The head of Nato appealed to Russia for greater help with the war in Afghanistan yesterday as he sought to repair relations between the military alliance and Moscow.

Anders Fogh Rasmussen asked President Medvedev to supply helicopters and prepare pilots for the Afghan air force, and expand training for Afghan police in Russia. It was the first visit by a Nato leader since Russia’s war with Georgia last year caused the most serious rift in relations since the Cold War.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That collective snickering sound you're hearing is that created by Russian leadership, trying not to laugh their heads off at how completely the US and NATO are making every single mistake that the old Soviet Union made during its occupation of Afghanistan.

Pakistan turmoil deepens as President Zardari faces corruption charges

Pakistan’s top court struck down a controversial amnesty deal yesterday that has protected President Zardari and his allies from corruption charges, deepening the country’s political turmoil as it battles Islamic militants.

The Supreme Court’s ruling prompted calls for Mr Zardari to step down and face criminal charges that were shelved two years ago as part of the amnesty. Legal experts said that the judgment could also open the way for a challenge to the legitimacy of Mr Zardari’s election.

Webmaster's Commentary:

U.S. National Debt Tops Debt Limit

The latest calculation of the National Debt as posted by the Treasury Department has - at least numerically - exceeded the statutory Debt Limit approved by Congress last February as part of the Recovery Act stimulus bill.

The ceiling was set at $12.104 trillion dollars. The latest posting by Treasury shows the National Debt at nearly $12.135 trillion.

A senior Treasury official told CBS News that the department has some "extraordinary accounting tools" it can use to give the government breathing room in the range of $150-billion when the Debt exceeds the Debt Ceiling.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder if those "extraordinary accounting tools" would be characterized by most honest accountants as "cooking the books"?!?!?

Fox News Covers Mass Drugging of Society with Lithium

Japanese researchers, according to Georgiou, are “investigating whether trace amounts of lithium can just change the mood in a community enough — in a really positive way without having the bad effects of lithium — to really affect the mood and decrease the suicide rate.”

Remarkably, Georgiou does not address the moral issue of forcibly drugging a population into submission.

The Truth About Tamiflu

Now it looks as if our concerns were correct, and the nation may have put more than a billion dollars into the medical equivalent of a mirage. This week, the British medical journal BMJ published a multi-part investigation that confirms that the scientific evidence just isn’t there to show that Tamiflu prevents serious complications, hospitalization, or death in people that have the flu. The BMJ goes further to suggest that Roche, the Swiss company that manufactures and markets Tamiflu, may have misled governments and physicians. In its defense, Roche stated that the company “has never concealed (or had the intention to conceal) any pertinent data.

CLIMATEGATE - Torquemada in East Anglia

Though professional hysterics may seek to “hide the decline,” there has been a noticeable drop in the number of Americans who believe that global warming is a man-made phenomenon. Pause on that for a moment. Though Americans have been harangued about global warming for more than a decade, only 35 percent told a recent Pew survey that global warming is a serious problem, compared with 44 percent the previous year.

This skepticism predated the exposure of the East Anglia e-mails — those playful missives that reveal some of the most prominent climate researchers to be, if not outright charlatans, at least partisans.

“I find myself puzzled. Why exactly is this law to be ‘reviewed’ or ‘reformed’? Is it because Britain decided to give up on its ethical tradition? Or is it because Miliband needs the support of the Labour Friends of Israel so he can be re-elected? Or is he just revealing an ever-present hidden cronyism?

How can the US be fascist if we have elections and the US Constitution? Ok, I'll explain…

US policy is fascist in unlawful Wars of Aggression, obvious torture, paper-thin propaganda to expand US war to Iran, blatant violation of international treaties with WMD, transfer of TRILLIONS of our tax dollars to financial elites, and corporate media prostitution service to propagandize the above facts to an awakening American public.

Climategate goes SERIAL: now the Russians confirm that UK climate scientists manipulated data to exaggerate global warming

On Tuesday, the Moscow-based Institute of Economic Analysis (IEA) issued a report claiming that the Hadley Center for Climate Change based at the headquarters of the British Meteorological Office in Exeter (Devon, England) had probably tampered with Russian-climate data.

The IEA believes that Russian meteorological-station data did not substantiate the anthropogenic global-warming theory. Analysts say Russian meteorological stations cover most of the country’s territory, and that the Hadley Center had used data submitted by only 25% of such stations in its reports. Over 40% of Russian territory was not included in global-temperature calculations for some other reasons, rather than the lack of meteorological stations and observations.

Homelessness on the Rise for Female Vets

By the time she found her way to a program run by the nonprofit U.S. Vets for homeless female veterans in this Southern California city, she'd slept in San Diego on the beach or anywhere she could find after a night of partying. One morning, she woke up behind a trash bin, her pants torn, with no memory of what happened.

Instead of helping her forget her six months in Iraq, where she said she faced attacks on her compound and sexual harassment from fellow soldiers, the alcohol and drugs brought flashbacks and raging blackouts. She said she tried to kill herself.

U.S. tax dollars fund rabbi who excused killing gentile babies

The White House condemns the torching of a mosque, yet respectable Americans contribute to a yeshiva whose rabbi said it's okay to kill gentile babies. It is no surprise that the American administration tacitly, if unenthusiastically, accepted the excuse that the map of national priority zones the cabinet approved on Sunday does not violate the decision to freeze construction in the settlements.

How can President Barack Obama object to furthering education in a settlement like Yitzhar, located in the heart of the West Bank? After all, his own tax revenues contribute to the flourishing of the Od Yosef Chai Shechem yeshiva, the settlement's crowning glory.

The charges relate entirely to the Gaza massacre committed between December 2008 and January 2009 by Israeli troops under the command of Ehud Barak, and the whole allegation of crimes in the letter to the prosecutor consists of the so-called “Goldstone Report” itself, and it names as witnesses the members of the commission, judge Goldstone and his colleagues, as well as their interview partners.

The Green Hypocrites: Prince Charles and Gordon Brown take separate jets... to lecture the world on global warming

Prince Charles and Gordon Brown were accused last night of ‘green hypocrisy’ after jetting into Copenhagen to lecture the world about global warming.

Charles used the £1,019-an-hour Queen’s Flight so he could deliver a keynote speech to the climate change conference, flying back after less than three hours.

The Prime Minister chartered a 185-seat Airbus to take him and 20 aides to Denmark for their four-day trip.


Hampshire-based Carbon Footprint Limited said the prince’s round trip would have produced around 6.4tons of carbon dioxide – 5.2tons more than if he had used a commercial flight.

They also estimated that the amount of CO2 generated by Mr Brown’s flight is likely to be double that of the prince’s.

Now to most people, “rising tree mortality” raises the specter of a world with less greenery. But how does real world data compare with the virtual modeled world? Is the world getting less greener? Is there any hint of the virtual world in the real world data?

Satellite data for the real world (not the one Mr. Gore lives in) can help give us an idea.

It would thus appear that in this particular case of "data-doctoring," the cure was much worse than the disease. And it likely still is!

Multiply this figure by 162,000 soldiers in Iraq, 24,000 in Afghanistan, and 30,000 in the surrounding region (including sailors aboard U.S. warships in the Persian Gulf) and you arrive at approximately 3.5 million gallons of oil: the daily petroleum tab for U.S. combat operations in the Middle East war zone.

DNA testing clears man who served 28 years

A man who spent 28 years behind bars for a rape and murder he said he didn't commit walked out of a federal prison in Arizona on Tuesday with $75 and a bus ticket to Ohio after DNA testing showed he was innocent.

The conviction of Donald Eugene Gates, 58, was based largely on the testimony of an FBI forensic analyst whose work later came under fire and a hair analysis technique that has been discredited.

"I feel beautiful," Gates, 58, said by telephone after leaving the U.S. penitentiary in Tucson, Ariz.

Just hours before, the same judge who had presided over Gates' trial years ago in D.C. Superior Court ordered his release.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"On further DNA testing we have found that Mr. Gates probably worked as a camp guard for the Nazis and we are deporting him to Germany to remove this embarrassment from our legal history."


Cases like this are why I cannot support a death penalty. The courts are not perfect. Driven by ambition, prosecutors, judges, and even lab techs will fudge the facts to get what they want (shades of climategate).

If you imprison someone wrongfully, you can release them later and although you cannot give them their youth back, they can still have a portion of life restored to them.

But once you kill someone, and you find out you had the wrong person plugged into that execution chamber...

Until we know that the court system is perfect, or until we can restore a life wrongfully taken by the state, we should not be so quick to deal out death.

Israel: Women’s Group Tells Livni to Turn Herself In

Bethlehem – Ma’an - The Women’s Coalition for Peace sent a letter on Wednesday to Israel’s former Foreign Minister, Tzipi Livni, calling on her to cooperate with international investigations into her role in the assault on Gaza last winter, after a British court issued an warrant for her arrest on Monday.

The Israeli organization wrote in the letter, which was attached to a translated copy of the Goldstone report on alleged war crimes in Gaza, “We are convinced that if you refer to the report you will understand why British citizens and organizations have turned to the courts with a request to issue a warrant for your arrest.”

Stuart Littlewood: Israeli-style 'justice' for Berlanty – official version

The dragged-out scandal of final-year Bethlehem student Berlanty Azzam's arrest and abduction - handcuffed and blindfolded – and subsequent dumping in Gaza in the middle of the night just weeks before she was due to complete her degree, has horrified the Christian world far beyond the walled-in, imprisoned city of modern-day Bethlehem.

Berlanty, a young Christian girl, is being persecuted and cruelly denied her inalienable rights by the illegal invader and occupier, just like any of her Muslim friends and neighbours.

This data provides the longest direct measurement of the sun's activity, and reveals the 11-year sunspot activity cycle, as well as other longer-term solar changes.

Also, these records show a notable period of almost non-existent sunspot activity that occurred between 1645 and 1715, known as the Maunder Minimum and named after the English astronomer who studied it.

This period was also dubbed the "Little Ice Age" because of the prolonged period of low temperatures that happened during that same time.

CLIMATEGATE - Past Temperatures Debunk Global Warming Hysteria

This is what the Global Warmists don’t want you to see, if people only knew the climate temperatures 12,000 years ago they would be glad to live on a planet that is livable and not in an Ice Age. If you look at the charts in this video it will show you how lucky we are to live in a long and relatively warm period that is somewhat constant even though earths temperatures have not increased in the past 15 years.

Growing Up Empty: The Hunger Epidemic in America

Most Americans may find it hard to accept that millions in this nation are suffering from hunger -- an affliction most often associated with war-torn Africa or flood-ravaged Bengal. It flies in the face of everything we've been told about our nation's prosperity. First the Clinton and then the Bush administration have led us to believe that poverty is under control, pointing to the mass exodus from the welfare rolls since the 1996 reforms were launched. The $27 billion cut in food stamps? Justified, lawmakers told us, because the poor are working and feeding themselves. Hunger, it is commonly understood, has long since vanished, along with the 7 million people who no longer receive public assistance.

CIA hid Headley terror connection from India

Premier US investigating agencies knew about David Coleman Headley's link with a Pakistan-based terror outfit one year before 26/ 11, a Union government source claimed on Tuesday.

According to a long-standing home ministry's (MHA) doubt, the CIA came to know of the terror merchant's connection with the Lashkar-e-Tayyiba (LeT) when it started tracking him in October 2008.

But the US sleuths chose not to convey the information to their Indian counterparts while he was freely travelling across India.

Torture suit too hot to be heard, U.S. says

A lawsuit accusing a Bay Area flight-planning company of aiding an alleged CIA program of kidnapping and torturing terror suspects threatens national security and is too sensitive to discuss fully in a public courtroom, an Obama administration attorney argued Tuesday.

"The case cannot proceed without getting into state secrets," Justice Department lawyer Douglas Letter told an 11-judge panel of the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Every time the people complain about all the surveillance on us all, the usual reply by the government is "If you have done nothing wrong, then you have nothing to fear."

Well, sauce for the goose; if the US Government has done nothing wrong, then let the torture case proceed publicly.

Otherwise, it will be logical to conclude based on their statements about surveillance that the US Government has done something wrong.

'Just War' Is Just Words by Ralph Nader

President Obama, the Afghan war escalator, received the Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo, Norway, and proceeded to deliver his acceptance speech outlining the three criteria for a "just war" which he himself is violating.

The criteria are in this words: "If it is waged as a last resort or in self-defense; if the force used is proportional; and if, whenever possible, civilians are spared from violence."

Chilcot censors Iraq inquiry's live broadcast

He told the inquiry the government did not like the designation of Britain as an "occupying power" of Iraq along with the US even though that was the status under international law. Greenstock said London did not like the image it created, comparable, he said, to the "Israeli occupation of Palestine".

He described the feeling of resentment in the UN when it was asked to help cope with the problem after the invasion. There was a feeling the invasion was an "almost wanton act of destruction of the country's ability to look after itself," Greenstock said.

RETURN OF THE UNTERMENSCHEN - US: Guantanamo Prisoners Not ‘Persons’

Channeling their predecessors in the George W. Bush administration, Obama Justice Department lawyers argued in this case that there is no constitutional right not to be tortured or otherwise abused in a U.S. prison abroad.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If the Bill of Rights does not apply to everyone, everywhere, then it is not worth the parchment it is written on.

If the government can selectively grant the protections in the Bill of Rights, or revoke them at will, then they are not rights but merely indulgences granted by a master to well-behaved slaves.

CLIMATEGATE - UN Sponsored Poster Campaign Depicts Humans As Evil Monsters

A new poster campaign sponsored by the United Nations depicts humans as evil horror movie monsters intent on slaughtering wildlife, another abhorrent example of how eugenicists are following through on the Club of Rome’s 1991 promise to portray Homo sapiens as the enemy in an effort to construct a world government around the pretext of saving the earth.

The three posters reverse the roles of famous horror movies Jaws, King Kong, and Tarantula, characterizing humans as rampaging monsters out to kill defenseless species. They were produced by the Center for Migratory Species.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a great deal of self-hatred evident in the extreme environmental movement, typified by the conflicting ideas that a dam built by beavers for the beavers' use is natural but a dam built by humans for human use is not, or that human condos are artificial scars on the landscape but termite mounds, bee hives, wasp nests, and ant hills are beautiful parts of nature.

Fewer Canadians planning and saving for retirement, says RBC survey

Fewer Canadians are putting money into retirement plans, according to the Royal Bank's annual RRSP poll.

It says 32 per cent of Canadians have not started saving for retirement yet, compared to 24 per cent in 2008. The study also found only 36 per cent say they are planning or have planned for retirement, down from 42 per cent in 2008.


I know several Canadians that are working through their retirement years.

Iran test-fires missile, West concerned

Iran successfully test-fired a long-range, upgraded Sejil 2 missile on Wednesday, state television reported, a move likely to add to tension with Western powers worried by Tehran's nuclear ambitions.

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said the launch was of serious concern to the international community and underlined the case for tougher sanctions against Iran, the world's fifth-largest oil exporter.


Well, now. Isn't that interesting?

The west has a habit of attacking "enemies" who cannot mount any significant form of retaliation. The significance of this event is the fact that the West is unable to attack Iran knowing that they CAN and WILL retaliate in a VERY big way.

Gordon Brown had better put his tail between his legs and crawl off under a rock somewhere.

Sanctioning Iran a Dangerous, Illegal Move

I rise in strongest opposition to this new round of sanctions on Iran, which is another significant step toward a U.S. war on that country. I find it shocking that legislation this serious and consequential is brought up in such a cavalier manner. Suspending the normal rules of the House to pass legislation is a process generally reserved for "non-controversial" business such as the naming of post offices. Are we to believe that this House takes matters of war and peace as lightly as naming post offices?
