The Hebron Ghetto

Thursday was an international day of action to re-open Shuhada street in Hebron city, and mark the Cave of the Patriarch Massacre. A group of friends, from the Tel Aviv area, spontaneously decided we should go, so the five of us hopped in a car, hoping to join our friends from Jerusalem, who filled up a bus. We’ve all heard about Hebron, but nothing can prepare you for it, and nothing I can write, here, can truly depict what it means to be there.

That was a war council in Damascus

The three-party meeting that took place in Damascus on Friday gathering the Syrian president Bashar al Assad, the Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the Hizbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah was a war council to devise counterattack plans and assign tasks in the event of an Israeli offensive on one or all parties, wrote Abdelbari Atwan, the editor-in-chief of the pan-Arab newspaper Al Quds al Arabi.

“The timing of the meeting, the way it was undertaken and the ensuing press conference that was held at its conclusion, all point to a strategic coalition being reinforced. This is the build-up of a new front that will spearhead the confrontation with the US-Israeli alliance and whichever Arab countries that may, expressly or implicitly, be affiliated with it.”

Raise Taxes and Cut Services? Why Not Stop Unneccesary Bailouts, Unnecesary Wars and Unnecessary Interest Costs Instead?

But why aren't our government "leaders" talking about slashing the military-industrial complex, which is ruining our economy with unnecessary imperial adventures?

And why aren't any of our leaders talking about stopping the permanent bailouts for the financial giants who got us into this mess? And see this.

And why aren't they taking away the power to create credit from the private banking giants - which is costing our economy trillions of dollars (and is leading to a decrease in loans to the little guy) - and give it back to the states?

IMF-Style Austerity Comes to America

When billionaires pledge a billion dollars to educate people to the evils of something, it is always good to peer closely at what they are up to. Hedge fund magnate Peter G. Peterson was formerly Chairman of the Council on Foreign Relations and head of the New York Federal Reserve. He is now senior chairman of Blackstone Group, which is in charge of dispersing government funds in the controversial AIG bailout, widely criticized as a government giveaway to banks. Peterson is also founder of the Peter Peterson Foundation, which has adopted the cause of imposing “fiscal responsibility” on Congress. He hired David M. Walker, former head of the Government Accounting Office, to spearhead a massive campaign to reduce the runaway federal debt, which the Peterson/Walker team blames on reckless government and consumer spending. The Foundation funded the movie “I.O.U.S.A.” to amass popular support for their cause, which largely revolves around dismantling Social Security and Medicare benefits as a way to cut costs and return to “fiscal responsibility.”

Firefox Extension wars – NoScript vs. AdBlockPlus

One of the dirtiest secrets of the Internet is that it runs on ads for monetization. All of us who surf the web and use systems had lots and lots of free lunches because of advertisements being shown on web sites. The only difference to TV is that they are less obtrusive and you can choose to ignore or skip them (for now).

Self-righteous developers who do not quite grasp this dirty secret use all kind of tricks to remove adversiting from web sites they surf. This could be because of not wanting to support the corporate machine but also because of security reasons. Ad code on the internet is dire – it is built to support every possible imaginable environment and work around restrictions of setups – the ads need to show, no matter what.

Hawaii Aviation Firms Want Payment For Obama Visit

Owners of several aviation firms in Hawaii say they want the federal government to compensate them for lost business during President Barack Obama's two-week holiday visit to Oahu in December.

A temporary no-fly zone was in effect over parts of the island while Obama and his family were in a rented Kailua home.

The zone barred flight operations inside a 10-mile area centered on Kailua. That put a crimp on air tours, flight instruction and other small-airplane operations in the area.

Israeli courts have ruled that Jewish settlers could take over some Palestinian homes on the grounds that Jews held title to the properties before Israel was established in 1948.

On February 25, 1994, hundreds of Muslims were performing the Dawn Prayer at the Ibrahimi Mosque in Hebron, also known to Jews as the Cave of the Patriarchs.

However, a former Jewish immigrant from the United States, who was also a soldier in the Israeli security forces, ascended to the holy shrine and opened fire indiscriminately from his Galilion semi-automatic rifle, killing at least 29 people and injuring more than 160 others.

Is The Yellowstone Caldera Calling?

Over the last few months things have been heating up in our famous National Park and none of it is good.

Over eight days, more than 1,270 mostly tiny earthquakes have struck between Old Faithful and West Yellowstone. The strongest dozen or so have ranged between magnitudes 3.0 and 3.8. These are beginning to become serious in size, as a growing swarm of course, but the vast majority have been too weak to be felt even nearby.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here is why I am not dismissing this latest quake swarm out of hand as another in a long series of false-alarms.

Ever since the Boxing Day Quake in 2004, the entire Pacific Ocean tectonic Plate has been re-adjusting. As a result, we started seeing increases in seismic events traveling north along the Japan Islands and South along Malaysia into New Guinea/Fiji/New Zealand. There followed more quakes traveling east alone the north and south edges of the plate, which being lightly occupied area mostly went unreported outside the seismological community.

Inevitably the readjustment has arrived at the eastern edge of the Pacific Plate and we seem to be seeing increased seismic events along that edge, which is also the western edge of the Americas.

Plate links to plate and the Pacific Plate connects to the Nazca Plate and Cocos Plates, which abut South America and link to the Caribbean Plate. The Pacific Plate forms the western side of the San Andreas fault along North America's west coast.

So, we have had major quakes in Haiti and Chile. Not too long ago there was a rare major quake on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge along a fault junction that connects to the Caribbean Plate.

Got that "Fall down, bounce around, shake the town, Earthquake Boogie!"

So, follow me on this; The Pacific Plate thrusts underneath the North American Plate angling towards the east as it dips deeper into the Earth. The magma chamber under Yellowstone sinks down towards the west. Prior to the recent determination of the scape of the Yellowstone Mama chamber it was assumed that the Yellowstone Supervolcano was a "hot spot" volcano similar to what we have here in Hawaii, but with the true scale and direction of the Yellowstone magma chamber currently understood, it seems more likely that Yellowstone is a classic subduction volcano.

But whether Yellowstone is directly connected to the subducting Pacific Plate or not, in geological terms they are in close proximity and Yellowstone's lava, like that of all exploding volcanoes, contains massive amounts of dissolved gasses like CO2.

Just as a sudden shock to a warm glass of soda pop will trigger an episode of increased fizzing, a major quake along the Pacific plate will send compression waves through the Earth and into the Yellowstone Magma Chamber and unbalance the current dynamic equilibrium of dissolved gasses. That might well trigger a significant eruption of Yellowstone.

British people told by opposition politician to start arming themselves for a class war

The poorest today are, in absolute terms, less destitute than before, able to afford food, shelter, even satellite TV. But the disparity between them and the richest has risen. It is not merely, as Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett point out in their book The Spirit Level, that this damages health and encourages crime; in times of austerity, inequality can tear apart the social fabric. Take Greece, where the most frequent chant in this week’s riots was: “Make the plutocrats pay!”

Snow and Terror in Gotham

A final caution: Zazi confessed after prosecutors threatened to imprison his entire family. A former Bush administration "terrorism expert" boasted on CNN how threatening suspect’s families with prosecution gave the government useful "leverage." She would have found a happy home chez the Soviet secret police.

This is exactly how the Soviet secret police got people to sign confessions during the 1930’s purges. In fact, the great 1936 purges began right after the Soviet courts changed the law to allow the arrest of children over 12 years. That gave the NKVD a potent lever for getting parents to confess under threat their children would be jailed and disappear.

Congress Tries to Break Hawaii in Two

Last week, the House of Representatives, in a largely party-line vote, passed the Native Hawaiian Government Reorganization Act. Popularly known as "the Akaka bill," this piece of legislation might turn out to be this Congress's single most calamitous decision.

The bill creates a complex federal framework under which most of the nation's approximately 400,000 ethnic Hawaiians can organize themselves into one vast Indian tribe. It endows the tribe with the "inherent powers and privileges of self-government," including the privilege of sovereign immunity from lawsuit. It also by clear implication confers the power to tax, to promulgate and enforce a criminal code, and to exercise eminent domain. Hawaii will in effect be two states, not one.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Well, the only other alternative is to give the whole thing back to the Hawaiian people from whom it was
stolen in the first place!

Friedmanism at the Fed

Ongoing Congressional investigations into the AIG bailout have put the incestuous and murky relationship between the Federal Reserve and Wall Street in the spotlight--and put Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and Fed chair Ben Bernanke in the hot seat. Calls for Geithner's resignation regularly reverberate inside the Capitol, and Bernanke's recent reappointment was opposed by thirty senators, including Republican John McCain and independent Bernie Sanders. Critics from both sides of the aisle fault Geithner and Bernanke for mismanagement, unnecessary secrecy and undermining Congressional oversight. But neither of them has been the target of questions about gaming the system for personal financial gain.

Climate-gate head sorry for 'awful' emails

A BRITISH climate researcher at the centre of a row over global warming science has admitted he wrote some "pretty awful" emails to sceptics when he was refusing their requests for data.

But Phil Jones, of the University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit, yesterday defended his decision not to release the data about temperatures from around the world, saying it was not "standard practice" to do so.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Nonsense. The prime requirement for any scientific theory is reproducibility! A theory is not considered valid until other scientists starting with the same data/experiments come to the same exact results.

It is standard practice to make all such raw data available so that others can double-check the work. The whole point of the scientific method is that it operates outside the individual scientist to eliminate bias and mistakes. That is the reason for double-blind studies where the people gathering the data don't know what the data will be used for, and the people asked to analyze the results don't know what the results will be used for.

Science, unlike religion, recognizes that human individuals are flawed, make mistakes, and are prone to bias and wishful thinking.

The Arctic ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot, according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from Consul Ifft, at Bergen , Norway . Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers, he declared, all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard-of temperatures in the Arctic zone. Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met with as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes. Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream still very warm. Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.

watch this Video they seem to be saying up 5 people became ill, at the same time. 2 had to go to the hospital!

I am going to try and quote what is said in the video. so u can watch for it.
is this just BAD reporting ?
BUT even if only 2 people had to go to the hospital, even just this fact is FISHY!for a non-hazardous substance!

Quotes to watch for in the Video

1) the FBI says "Some individuals did suffer medical emergencies which, at this time do not
appear to be related to this incident."
1a) Note it DOES not say how many people, and why they had medical emergencies, if not for this incident ?

Coldest winter for more than 30 years... but Met Office defends its long range forecast

Asked on BBC TV: 'Why didn't you see this coming?', Keith Groves replied: 'I'm disappointed that our seasonal forecasts didn't give a prediction or stronger probability of a colder winter.'

It was also forced to defend its long-range forecasting last autumn, when the much-feted 'barbecue summer' proved to be a washout.

And last night the Met Office was on the back foot again.

Spokesman John Hammond said: 'You have got to bear in mind that it is a relatively new forecast. Only 20 years ago you would be looking at a one or two-day forecast and questioning its accuracy. Now we take those for granted.

Adding to the irony, the poll was taken on the same weekend the extension of the PATRIOT Act passed the Democratic-controlled Congress – without debate, without a peep of protest from the "progressives" in Congress, and disguised as a vote in favor of a Senate amendment to the Medicare Physician Payment Reform Act.

However, a few days or weeks later, when the suspect was arraigned before a military court, all the talk about being a "high-ranking leader" of the intifada would have disappeared from the list of charges. In many cases, the activist would be released a few months later for lack of evidence against him.

In that speech Dr. Kramer implored the West to stop its Pro Natal services to the already besieged and starving Gaza Palestinian pregnant mothers and infants as a method of controlling the rapid birth rate in Gaza as a matter of political and social policy. To him such control will naturally lead to a decrease in the radicalization of Palestinian youth which he calls "superfluous men" as well as relieve the "demographic threat" to Israel's Jewish identity.

The United States criticized Israel on Monday for authorizing 600 new housing units in the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Pisgat Ze’ev, describing the move as “counter-productive.”

“We’ve relayed our strong concerns to the government of Israel, that this kind of activity, particularly as we try to relaunch meaningful negotiations is counter-productive and undermines trust between the parties,” said State Department spokesman Philip Crowley.

On Friday the government gave the green light for the new homes to be built in the Jewish neighborhood in east Jerusalem, drawing anger from the Palestinians.

After many more questions, they left a paper that states I am to appear at the military liaison office next Monday. My sister and wife told them I will not be back by then.

They began implementing their plans to delete Palestinian Jerusalem and replace it with a Zionist version. One important landmark, a distinctive feature, of Palestinian Jerusalem is Al-Haram Ash-Sharif compound which includes Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock. To completely wipe out any Palestinian feature of the city, it was necessary to wipe out Al-Haram Ash-Sharif compound. To achieve this, a series of attacks, under various naming and excuses, were carried out on the Noble Sanctuary.

Bartering networks provide liquidity in cash-starved economy

"I was a little skeptical at first, but I've had no problems with it," she said. "The incentive is that people nowadays are looking for ways to get things done without having to spend money, because everybody's having a hard time with their money right now."

Landscaping company owner Glenn Wilser believes that the barter network has helped boost his business.

UK Police Promise Not To Retain DNA Data, But Do Anyway

"In 2008 I invited two policemen into my home and voluntarily gave them a DNA and fingerprint sample to help with a murder investigation, as they'd promised it would only be used for that investigation. I was never under any suspicion and could just as easily have said no. Almost a year after the investigation closed they have now confirmed that they've retained my samples and at my request have begun an investigation to see if there are sufficient 'exceptional circumstances' to remove them. I'm not the only one who was told samples would be removed, so if you've had such a promise from the police I recommend contacting their data protection registrar immediately."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is actually easier to plant DNA evidence at a crime scene than to fake a fingerprint (but the latter can be done fairly easily).

So, in this day and age I would not cooperate with the police on anything involving DNA unless they have a warrant and my lawyer says it is valid.

More Details Emerge on Assassination of Hamas Leader in Dubai

More details are emerging on the murder of Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, who was killed in Dubai on January 20 in what is widely thought to be an Israeli security service operation.

Dubai Police Chief Dahi Khalfan Tamim claims to be “99 percent, if not 100 percent” certain that Mossad, the Israeli secret service organisation, was responsible for the assassination.

The authorities in Dubai have now identified 26 people whom they allege were involved in the assassination. They are said to have carried fake passports in the names of British, Irish, French, Australian and German citizens. It is reported that 12 British, six Irish, three French, one German and three Australian passports were used.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think this Israeli "Charlie Foxtrot" may be one reason the "Al Qaeda Terrorists" (nudge-nudge, wink-wink, Say no more!) did not attack the Olympics!

The Fall of Greece

For Europe’s poorest countries, European Union membership has long held out the promise of tranquil prosperity. The current Greek financial crisis ought to dispel some of their illusions.

There are two strikingly significant levels to the current crisis. While primarily economic, the European Economic Community also claims to be a community, based on solidarity -- the sisterhood of nations and brotherhood of peoples. However, the economic deficit is nothing compared to the human deficit it exposes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In other words, as long as the member states of the EU were cash cows, the EU welcomed the, but now that hard times have hit, the favor is not to be returned!

The Moral Problem of Neocons like Bunning Who Love to Cut Off Poor Peoples' Living

The problem with neocons is that they think 'civilization' ENDS at the threshold of the "free market" (right wing code for the "economic law of the jungle: the predatory cult of enriching oneself at others' expense")

These people who exhalt themselves and denigrate others whom they disdainfully call 'bums' and speak of the meager income the poor may get from the government as "entitlements' (implying that any money the poor get from the government proves they are bums)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Whereas any money the rich get from the government is called a "bailout" proves they are very clever and worthy of immense bonuses!

2010 Brings First Tornado-Free February

While the so-called Snowmageddon and Snowicane tm blizzards that book-ended the month got much of the nation's attention, not a single tornado was reported in the United States during February 2010.

Coldest winter for more than 30 years... but Met Office defends its long range forecast

Perhaps someone should ask workers at the Met Office to take a rain check on their optimism.

After predicting just a 20 per cent chance of a colder than average winter, they were left embarrassed again when official figures revealed it was the coldest for more than 30 years.

Temperatures in December, January and February struggled to stay above zero, with the UK's average a chilly 1.5c (35f), making it the deepest freeze since 1978-79.

And in Scotland and Northern Ireland it was the coldest winter since 1962-63.

UK to kill off Internet cafes

THE GLORIOUS BRITISH GOVERNMENT, upon which the sun finally set almost 100 years ago, has decided that having open WiFi networks is bad for the general population and it wants them all shut off.

Despite the big talk of revolution, there is little possibility for successful military insurrection for a long time to come. The real danger now is that through violence unstable people or groups may give ADL, the Department of Homeland Security, liberal media and Obama Democrats exactly what they want: confirmation that the tea party and far right are not only potential but actual domestic terrorists. The government response will be martial law, oppressive directives and legislation much further stripping us of freedom.
