TRANSLATED Knesset Members Attack Haneen Zoabi After Free Gaza

Does this look like a democratic? country when the MP wasn't allow to speak and those people keep interrupting her. Where's the freedom of speech?
If this is how they treat their MP, imagine how they treat the Palestinians. What a shame!!

The St. Petersburg Times: A Paper That Deserves To Be Put Down

Of all the newspapers in America which deserve to be put out of business one in particular stands out; the St. Petersburg Times. The newspaper and its sadistic staff have a very twisted way of conducting business. Not only does their writing have a very Marxist slant, but the chutzpah which they demonstrate is especially noteworthy.

Help Bradley Manning: with Vids

If he's the guy who leaked the video he's a hero. Bradley Manning is charged with leaking the video (embedded below) showing US personnel murdering people in Iraq - including Reuters journalists. What he needs is AMNESTY - after all - who can argue that he's actually done anything wrong?

Israel plans dig at burial place of Prophet Muhammad’s companions and Saladin warriors

Jonathan Cook reports on plans by the Israeli authorities and the bigoted Simon Wiesenthal Centre to desecrate a historic Muslim cemetery in Jerusalem where the Prophet Muhammad’s companions and tens of thousands of Saladin’s warriors are buried in order to build a courthouse and an ironically named “Museum of Tolerance”.

The Second Worst Thing That Ever Happened to the Jewish People

The Gaza Flotilla and Israel’s Many, Many Rights

I now list the rights that Israel is entitled to exercise now and forever with the full support of its true friends, mainly in America, but wherever else they may be found. Perhaps not, at the moment, in Turkey.

Israel has the right to kill anyone, anytime, for any reason it chooses. This includes those it designates as terrorists or terrorist supporters in Israel itself, in the occupied territories, in Dubai, on airplanes, in cars and on ships. No other state is entitled to this right for reasons that I now forget, but which I am sure Al and Les can remind us about....

You Really Want Government Drilling for Oil?

You've got to hand it to the people who really dislike free markets. They see them everywhere (under every bed?) and especially wherever any serious problem arises. That no free market exists within a thousand miles makes no difference whatsoever.

So what failed here, the market or the State? The call isn't even close. The free market was nowhere near the scene. It has an airtight alibi. It didn't exist.

Pentagon Manhunt

Manning has reportedly admitted that he downloaded 260,000 diplomatic cables and provided them to Wikileaks. In Internet chat logs first revealed by Wired magazine, Manning also took credit for leaking the 2007 video to the website.

“Hillary Clinton and several thousand diplomats around the world are going to have a heart attack when they wake up one morning and find an entire repository of classified foreign policy is available,” Manning wrote of the diplomatic cables, according to Wired.

Wikileaks has not confirmed that Manning is a source of any information posted on the site. “We do not know if Mr. Manning is our source, but the U.S. military is claiming he is, so we will defend him,” Wikileaks said in another Twitter message.

Obama As Moral Dupe – Will Erdogan Blink?

By FRANKLIN C. SPINNEY
Former military analyst for the Pentagon

A recent article by Patrick Cockburn, one of the ablest reporters covering the Middle East, provides an excellent character portrait of Turkish Prime Minister Recep Erdogan. It is certainly consistent with what little I have been able to learn about this fascinating politician. Regardless of what you may think of Erdogan, and he has many detractors (I am not one), he is certainly establishing himself as an influential world leader who must be reckoned with in an emerging multi-polar world.

Cockburn’s report is must reading, because Erdogan has maneuvered himself onto the moral high ground in a very serious crisis he did not create. Consider please the following:

Thank you Helen Thomas for telling the truth

Dr. Salim Nazzal

Thank you Helen Thomas that you ended your long and successful career by telling the truth about Palestine. Your few words summarized the whole conflict. Your few words made the right diagnosis for all the wars that have taken place in the Middle East. The reason for all these wars is obvious now to anyone with eyes, the establishment of the state of Israel at the expense of the indigenous Palestinians. Can anyone imagine how the Middle East would have been without Israel? There would be no wars, no conflicts, no racist ideology, no atomic arms, and no arms race with all the side effects of such militarization of the region. Religious fanatics would most likely never have emerged.

Mohamed Khodr – The Israelites: From Slaves in the East to the Master Race of the West

After 2,500 years the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel have been found in their true Promised Land-America– their land of milk, honey, money, weapons, vetoes, and extraordinary control and influence over the gentile “greatest” giant.

“On the morrow of a persecution in Europe in which they had been the victims of the worst atrocities ever known, the Jews’ immediate reaction to their own experience was to become persecutors in their turn. In 1948, the Jews knew, from personal experience, what they were doing; and it was their supreme tragedy that the lessons learnt by them from their encounter with the Nazi German Gentiles should have been not to eschew but to initiate some of the evil deeds that the Nazis had committed against the Jews”

BP Dispersant Ingredients And Their Use In GM Cops

reposted from Tina Chen's in The OtheR News.

Corexit EC9527A is 30-60% 2-Butoxyethanol by weight. 2-B ( I will use the abbreviation 2-B ) is a main ingredient in many fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides ( especially Roundup ), insecticides, fuels, fungicides, cosmetics & leather treatment , and oddly enough, it is commonly used for " handling " oil spills .
.... The main argument for the use of COREXIT products, I have heard , is based on the studies of algae and microbial life in the Gulf ... These microbes cannot proliferate until the Oxygen is depleted from the water. The colder temp loving microbes eat only short-chain hydrocarbons like gases, and the warmer clime-preferring ones are easily killed by 2-B. In order for these cold temp loving microbes to digest Hydrocarbon gases, these gases must first be produced. The gases they actually do eat are methane (CH4 ) ethane (C2H6), propane (C3H8) and butane (C4H10). They gases they produce are Hydrogen Cyanide and Hydrogen Sulfide.

The breakdown products of COREXIT are CO2 and Carbon Monoxide, neither of which stay suspended in salt-water at 5k' +, nor do the indigenous bacteria in the Gulf eat them. What does stay suspended in water is 2-B.

So that argument is moot.

Thai government tells US it's in charge

"We ourselves also see some difficulties in negotiating and discussing with the Red Shirts," Kiat told AFP. "If the US extends a helping hand, I don't know if it will have different results."

American Smuggled Back Video of Israel's Behavior During Flotilla Massacre

The world is slowly absorbing the real magnitude of the Israeli attack on the Freedom Flotilla to aid Gaza. A filmmaker as it turns out, was able to smuggle an hour of raw video back to the USA and two versions, a 15-minute edited video, and the full 60-minutes of raw video, are both published below.

Cultures of Resistance director Iara Lee was aboard the besieged Mavi Marmara and has since returned home safely.

I would consider her to be one of the bravest and most successful filmmaker/documentarians in the world. Nobody expected this, the amount of gunfire from Israel's military is unbelievable, horrifying.

Schumer’s Sippenhaftung and the Children of Gaza

"Gaza" is an abstraction to most Israelis, including [partisans of Israel like] Sen. Charles Schumer of New York. A majority of the 1.5 million Gazans is not even from Gaza, but rather is from what is now Israel.

BP bailout proposal coming soon

Get ready for the BP bailout debate. As the most hated company in America led by the most despised CEO in business continues its systematic deceptions about the magnitude of the catastrophe, its systematic secrecy and threats of reprisal against employees who speak the truth in public and its systematic blockade against reporters seeking the basic facts, get ready for the mother of all political debates.

THE FIRST NATIONAL JEWISH ANTI-ZIONIST GATHERING

THE FIRST NATIONAL JEWISH ANTI-ZIONIST GATHERING
PRIOR TO THE 2010 UNITED STATES SOCIAL FORUM
JUNE 19-22, 2010: DETROIT
The 2010 US Social Forum comes at a time when there is great urgency to build on recent successes of the Palestine solidarity movement, as United States corporations and the government continue to commit grave injustices in Palestine- not to mention in our own communities. Organized anti-Zionist Jews in the United States can play a critical role in movements with anti-racism and anti-imperialism at the center, and building stronger international solidarity.
