israel kills 11 Palestinians in less than 24hrs September 28, 2007

isreal is ramping up its genocide in Gaza.

But, don’t believe the zionist propaganda. This is not about rockets. It’s about GAS.

GAZA CITY (AFP) — The Israeli military killed two Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip early on Thursday, bringing to 11 the death toll in one of the bloodiest 24 hours in the Hamas-run territory in recent months.

The escalation, in which another 20 people were wounded, followed a warning by Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak that the clock was ticking down to a widescale military operation in Gaza aimed at curbing incessant rocket fire.

A pre-dawn Israeli air strike killed two militants from the armed wing of Hamas near the northern town of Beit Hanun, Palestinian sources said.

The army confirmed that it had “targeted a rocket-launching cell in northern Gaza who were about to fire into Israel, and we identified hitting them.”

[Bullshit.]

Late on Wednesday, nine Palestinians, two of them civilians, were killed in two separate Israeli strikes in the impoverished territory.

In the heart of Gaza City, five militants from the radical Army of Islam — which claims links to Al-Qaeda — were killed when an Israeli aircraft targeted their truck.

A sixth member of the group died of his wounds overnight, medics said.

The Army of Islam was one of three Palestinian groups, including Hamas’s armed wing, which claimed responsibility for capturing an Israeli conscript in a brazen and deadly cross-border raid in June 2006. He is still missing.

It was also responsible for March kidnapping BBC reporter Alan Johnston, who was released after 16 weeks in captivity.

[More Bullshit.]

In Beit Hanun, two civilians and one militant were killed during an Israeli ground incursion on the outskirts of the town, when armoured vehicles backed by helicopters moved some two kilometres (one mile) inside Palestinian territory in search of rockets, according to the army.

The ground operation ended early on Thursday morning, Palestinian and Israeli sources said.

More than 20 mortar shells and 11 rockets have been fired into Israel from Gaza over the past 24 hours, causing minor damage but no injuries, the army said.

The violence marks one of the bloodiest 24 hours in Gaza since Hamas, a group pledged to Israel’s destruction, seized control of the territory in mid-June, routing security forces loyal to moderate president Mahmud Abbas.

Nevertheless, Abbas lashed out against the operation in a statement released by Wafa, the official news wire of the Palestinian Authority.

“President Mahmud Abbas strongly condemned the military operations of the Israeli army in the Gaza Strip which led to the killing and wounding of scores of martyrs,” the statement said.

Abbas, currently in New York for the annual meeting of the UN General Assembly, called “for an immediate intervention to stop the slaughter the Israeli army is carrying out against our people in the Gaza Strip,” it added.

Abbas is “studying the possibility of calling the Security Council to convene an emergency session to stop the Israeli aggression,” and will be meeting with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon later on today, it said.

Hamas also slammed the Israeli raids, with spokesman Taher al-Nunu saying it was “part of a strategy of war on the Palestinian people and on Hamas.”

Ismail Radwan, a senior Hamas official, said the strikes were aimed at putting “more and more pressure on Hamas… The enemy wants to destroy Hamas and the Hamas government by escalating its aggression.”

The Gaza operation came as Israelis began celebrating the Jewish holiday of Sukkot (Feast of the Tabernacles) and as Gazans continued to observe the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

Despite regular limited incursions and air strikes into Gaza — with 1.5 million residents, one of the world’s most densely populated places — Israel has been unable to stamp out rocket fire from the territory.

On Wednesday Barak warned that “we are nearing an extensive operation in Gaza in response to rocket firing.”

Radwan warned Israel against “any complete incursion into the Gaza Strip… Any Israeli incursion, any Israeli escalation will fail,” he said, adding that it “will be met by martyr operations by both women and men,” in reference to suicide bombings.

A widescale Israeli operation inside Gaza last year — launched after the Israeli serviceman was seized by militants last June — lasted for five months and killed hundreds of Palestinians but failed to halt rocket attacks.

Although most of the homemade rockets launched by Gaza militants fall in open spaces, some of them hit their marks, leaving Israelis living around the coastal strip in a perpetual state of anxiety.

This can’t go on much longer.

It looks like israel will soon push for a “final solution” to the Arab inhabitants of Gaza.

Hiroshima, the pictures they didn’t want us to see September 28, 2007

Posted by infidelkafirwatch in Uncategorized.

I had to quote this blog article here, as it vital for people to see the destruction caused by US who today Policies the world.  Click here for the source of this article.

The Atomic Bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki killed about 250.000 people and became the most dreadful slaughter of civilians in modern history. However, for many years there was a curious gap in the photographic records. Although the names of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were incised into our memories, there were few pictures to accompany them. Even today, the image in our minds is a mixture of devastated landscapes and shattered buildings. Shocking images of the ruins, but where were the victims?

The American occupation forces imposed strict censorship on Japan, prohibiting anything “that might, directly or by inference, disturb public tranquility” and used it to prohibit all pictures of the bombed cities. The pictures remained classified ‘top secret’ for many years. Some of the images have been published later by different means, but it’s not usual to see them all together. This is the horror they didn’t want us to see, and that we must NEVER forget:

1. Signals

All the watches found in the ground zero were stopped at 8:15 am, the time of the explosion.

Within a certain distance from the site of explosion, the heat was so intense that practically everything was vaporised. The shadows of the parapets were imprinted on the road surface of the Yorozuyo Bridge, 1/2 of a mile south-southwest of the hypocenter. Besides, in Hiroshima, all that was left of some humans, sitting on stone benches near the centre of explosion, was their outlines.

The photograph bellow shows the stone steps of a Bank where a person was incinerated by the heat rays.

2. The massacre

On August 6, 1945, 8.15 am, the uranium atom bomb exploded 580 metres above the city of Hiroshima with a blinding flash, creating a giant fireball and sending surface temperatures to 4,000C. Fierce heat rays and radiation burst out in every direction, unleashing a high pressure shockwave, vaporising tens of thousands of people and animals, melting buildings and streetcars, reducing a 400-year-old city to dust.

Housewives and children were incinerated instantly or paralysed in their daily routines, their internal organs boiled and their bones charred into brittle charcoal.

Beneath the center of the explosion, temperatures were hot enough to melt concrete and steel. Within seconds, 75,000 people had been killed or fatally injured with 65% of the casualties nine years of age and younger.

Radiation deaths were still occurring in large numbers in the following days. “For no apparent reason their health began to fail. They lost appetite. Their hair fell out. Bluish spots appeared on their bodies. And then bleeding began from the ears, nose and mouth”.

Doctors “gave their patients Vitamin A injections. The results were horrible. The flesh started rotting from the hole caused by the injection of the needle. And in every case the victim died”.

This photograph shows an eyeball of an A-bomb victim who got an atomic bomb cataract. There is opacity near the center of the eyeball.

3. Hibakusha

Hibakusha is the term widely used in Japan referring to victims of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The Japanese word translates literally to “explosion-affected people”.

They and their children were (and still are) victims of severe discrimination due to lack of knowledge about the consequences of radiation sickness, which people believed to be hereditary or even contagious.

Many of them were fired from their jobs. Hibakusha women never got married, as many feared they would give birth to deformed children. Men suffered discrimination too. “Nobody wanted to marry someone who might die in a couple of years”.

4. Yamahata, the photographer of Nagasaki

On Agust 10, 1945, the day after the bombing of Nagasaki Yosuke Yamahata, began to photograh the devastation. The city was dead. He walked through the darkened ruins and the dead corpses for hours. By late afternoon, he had taken his final photographs near a first aid station north of the city. In a single day, he had completed the only extensive photographic record of the immediate aftermath of the atomic bombing of either Hiroshima or Nagasaki.

“A warm wind began to blow – he wrote later – Here and there in the distance I saw many small fires, like elf-fires, smoldering. Nagasaki had been completly destroyed”

Mr. Yamahata’s photographs are the most complete record of the atomic bombing as seen in the most immediate hours after the bombing. The New York Times has called Mr. Yamahata’s photographs, “some of the most powerful images ever made”.

Mr. Yamahata became violently ill on August 6, 1965, his forty-eighth birthday and the twentieth anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima. He was diagnosed with terminal cancer of the duodenum, probably caused by the residual effects of radiation received in Nagasaki in 1945. He died on April 18, 1966, and is buried at Tama Cemetery, Tokyo.

Next war, budget sorted $42B, now just a reason needed September 27, 2007

By Tom Vanden Brook, USA TODAY

WASHINGTON — Defense Secretary Robert Gates asked a Senate committee Wednesday for $42 billion in additional funding for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan next year.

The request includes $11 billion for new armored vehicles to protect troops from roadside bombs and money to bring home 21,000 troops next year.

The request brings the total 2008 price tag to $189 billion for next year. Congress has approved about $450 billion for the war in Iraq and $127 billion for the war in Afghanistan.

The Pentagon already has approval to buy 8,000 Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles. The $11 billion would allow for the purchase of an additional 7,000. The vehicles have V-shaped hulls and raised chassis to deflect the force of improvised explosive devices, or roadside bombs.

Troops in MRAPs are as much as four times more likely to survive an attack than those in flat-bottomed Humvees. There are about 1,100 MRAP and similar vehicles in Iraq, Gates said.

Sen. Robert Byrd, D-W.Va., chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, criticized the Bush administration for waging a “nefarious and infernal” war. He vowed that Congress would not rubber-stamp the request.

Gates acknowledged that the wars had created friction between Congress and Bush, but he called on Congress to approve the request quickly and without “excessive and counterproductive restrictions.”

He said consistent funding is critical to maintain MRAP production. Gates estimated that production will peak at 1,200 vehicles per month by December.

The $42 billion request includes $6 billion to pay for combat troops in Iraq in 2008.

That money would also pay to bring home about 21,000 troops sent to Iraq as part of a troop escalation this year.

The troops could return home next summer, under a recommendation made by Gen. David Petraeus, the top U.S. commander in Iraq. That would bring the U.S. troop level there to about 130,000.

Further reductions will be based on improved security in Iraq. Gates indicated the possibility of a long-term U.S. presence in Iraq about a quarter of the size of the current force.

House Minority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio, said the funding proposal should be approved immediately.

Gates addressed the controversy surrounding security contractors in Iraq. They have come under increased scrutiny after 11 Iraqis were killed Sept. 16 in an incident involving Blackwater USA contractors. Blackwater has said they shot in self-defense.

The Pentagon has dispatched a team to Iraq to investigate the role of security contractors, Gates said.

There are about 7,000 security contractors working for the Defense Department in Iraq. About 5,000 guard buildings and bases.

Blackwater contractors were working for the State Department in Iraq, but the incident has raised questions, Gates said.

“My concern is whether there has been sufficient accountability and oversight,” Gates said.

DIVIDE & CONQUER – Divide Iraq into 3 regions (and secure Israel) September 27, 2007

Even before Iraq was invaded, people with open eye’s knew that in the pursuit of oil the west will also divide Iraq in to little sectarian segments to keep Israel a secure nation.  This strategy is well known as Stan Moore writes:

“Divide and Conquer. That strategy is as old as warfare itself. Much is at stake, and letting the divided enemy self-destruct is much more painless than head-on confrontation.”


Why wouldn’t the U.S. bomb Shiite holy places in Iraq and shift the blame to Sunnis? Why wouldn’t the U.S. want a civil war in Iraq? Hasn’t the U.S. Always pursued “divide and conquer” strategies, starting with the earliest days of conquering the native inhabitants of Turtle Island?

Didn’t the British allies of the U.S. get caught with SAS soldiers in Arab garb driving around Basra with bomb-making materials in their vehicle? Weren’t the Brits so concerned over the capture of their covert operators by Iraqi police that they broke them out of custody, using tanks to destroy a local jail?

Anyone who doubts that the U.S. wouldn’t deliberately provoke hostility within the Iraqi population is naive, ignorant, or stupid. Didn’t the U.S. set up an Iraqi constitution that subdivided the nation by religion and culture in order to provoke resource disputes between the subdivisions? Wouldn’t a united Iraq that insisted on full Iraqi sovereignty and control of Iraqi assets and wealth be a bigger challenge to U.S. hegemony that a divided Iraq, no matter how great the intra-Iraqi violence patterns?

After all, the U.S. personnel can stay relatively safe within the Green Zone or military bases with patrol aircraft and mechanized infantry providing security while Iraqis blow the hell out of each other all over the country. The U.S. can send Navy Seals or Delta Force operatives to bomb golden mosques or any other locations they can get access to. Haven’t U.S. personnel been photographed in native garb in Afghanistan? Why wouldn’t they do the same in Iraq?

Divide and Conquer. That strategy is as old as warfare itself. Much is at stake, and letting the divided enemy self-destruct is much more painless than head-on confrontation. [date: 02/2006]

Note the date above, but since then while various smoke screens have been created to avoid this new, it seems the US have already decided the fate of the Iraq’s by setting into motion the process to reduce Iraq into mini states, keep them occupied in sectarian violence over new boarders and overall become a lesser threat to Israel and its security.  What write does US have into deciding the fate of Iraq?

Senate backs separating Iraq into 3 regions

Biden’s nonbinding bill, which draws bipartisan support, calls for a decentralized nation that empowers areas.

By Noam N. Levey, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer
September 27, 2007

WASHINGTON — Implicitly criticizing the Bush administration’s reliance on the Iraqi central government to unify the country, the U.S. Senate on Wednesday overwhelmingly endorsed the decentralization of Iraq into semi-autonomous regions.
The nonbinding measure sponsored by Sen. Joseph R. Biden Jr. (D-Del.) — which supports a “federal system” that would divide Iraq into sectarian-dominated regions — won unusually broad bipartisan support, passing 75 to 23.
It attracted 26 Republicans, 47 Democrats and both independents.
“Slowly but surely we’re building a consensus in the Congress around a way forward in Iraq,” said Biden, who worked with conservatives, such as Sen. Sam Brownback (R-Kan.), and liberals, such as Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), to get the measure through. “That is a very hopeful sign.”
After the vote, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) cast it as an indictment of Bush’s war strategy, though the measure will not compel the administration to do anything differently.
Reid has failed all year to win substantial GOP support for measures challenging current White House policy in Iraq.
Biden’s proposal, which he outlined a year and a half ago, was once dismissed by the Bush administration and many on Capitol Hill as an unworkable and irresponsible prescription for breaking apart Iraq. But as the government of Prime Minister Nouri Maliki has stumbled in its efforts to unify the country’s warring religious and ethnic communities, the idea of a decentralized country divided among Kurds, Sunnis and Shiites has taken on new currency.
Kurds already have a largely autonomous entity in northern Iraq with a separate president and parliament. And the Bush administration’s new emphasis on “bottom-up” efforts to create a civil society, such as those it has promoted among Sunni tribal leaders in Anbar province, have been seen as a de facto endorsement of a more decentralized approach in Iraq.
The White House reacted tersely, noting that the measure conditions the policy change on the agreement of Iraqis. “The amendment recognizes that Iraqis will be the ones that make decisions about their political future,” National Security Council spokesman Gordon Johndroe said in a statement. “It also reiterates the importance of bottom-up reconciliation.”
In the Senate, Biden’s proposal has attracted far more Republican support than any previous Democratic plan, but it will have no practical effect unless it pressures the president or Iraqis to change course.
Senate Democrats last week failed three times to overcome GOP filibusters of measures designed to more forcefully change the course of U.S. policy in Iraq, including two that would have mandated a withdrawal.
Senior Democrats are still working on a compromise calling for a change of mission in Iraq that could attract enough Republican support to overcome the 60-vote supermajority insisted on by GOP leaders. It remains unclear if they will be successful before the Senate wraps up its debate of a key defense policy bill.
Biden’s amendment to the 2008 defense authorization bill concludes that “the United States should actively support a political settlement in Iraq based on the final provisions of the Constitution that create a federal system of government and allow for the creation of federal regions, consistent with the wishes of the Iraqi people and their leaders.”
Biden, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has argued that his plan does not endorse partition but simply recognizes that Iraq’s communities need to separate to stem the cycle of ethnic and sectarian violence.
He and other supporters point to the Balkans, where the U.S. helped craft a federated system in Bosnia-Herzegovina that separated Serbs, Croats and Bosnian Muslims after years of bloody civil war.
“It is possible that the present structure in Baghdad is incapable of national reconciliation because its elected constituents were elected on a sectarian basis,” said Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Texas), one of the measure’s cosponsors. “A wiser course would be to concentrate on the three principal regions.”
Several leading Senate Republicans — who have worked to block nearly all legislation this year challenging U.S. policy in Iraq — criticized the Biden plan for sending a dangerous message to Iraq.
“It would be a mistake for us to be seen as dictating to the Iraqi people,” said Arizona Sen. Jon Kyl, the No. 3 Republican in the Senate. “It’s clearly up to the Iraqi people to make this decision.”
All but one of the 23 no votes Wednesday were Republican. Sen. Russell D. Feingold of Wisconsin was the only Democrat to vote against the measure.
Wednesday, the Senate also passed a second nonbinding amendment that urges the Bush administration to designate Iran’s Revolutionary Guard as a terrorist organization, a move the administration is considering.
The measure — sponsored by Kyl and Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) — passed 76 to 22 over the objections of some Democrats who said it risked opening the door to war with Iran.
Twenty-one Democrats and one independent voted against it.

Supermodels launch anti-racism protest

Discrimination in fashion world ‘worst since 60s’
· Monthly rallies planned to put pressure on industry

by Ed Pilkington
Guardian

Several of the world’s top black supermodels, including Naomi Campbell, Iman, Liya Kebede and Tyson Beckford, yesterday launched a campaign against race discrimination in the fashion industry – which they say is at its worst since the 1960s.
About 70 leading models, designers, agents and fashion show producers gathered at a New York hotel in the first of a series of rallies designed to put pressure on the industry to face up to the problem.

Ms Campbell, who flew in from London for the meeting, repeated her recent claim that she could no longer get on to the cover of British Vogue. “Do I still want to be on the cover of British Vogue? Absolutely I do. It’s not because I don’t sell, because I do sell – more than many of my white counterparts.”

The south London-born supermodel said there had been times in her career when she had been so exhausted she had wanted to stop modelling.

She said she had no desire for sympathy or to blame anybody, but said she had had to resort to extraordinary measures to overcome resistance.

She revealed that she had forced her way on to the cover of French Vogue only after the designer Yves Saint Laurent had threatened to break off relations with the magazine unless they did so.

The event was organised by Bethann Hardison, a model from the 1970s who formed her own agency that helped launch the careers of Ms Campbell and Mr Beckford, one of the highest paid male supermodels. “In the past decade the black image has been reduced to a category – she is not even to be seen; she has become invisible,” Ms Hardison said.

The New York Times noted this week that several of the New York fashion week shows, including Calvin Klein, had featured only white models.

Several speakers at yesterday’s event said the industry had become progressively closed to African-Americans through open discrimination that would be unthinkable in any other US industry.

Claude Grunitzky, editor of the magazine Trace, said that when he invited Somalia-born Iman to guest edit a recent edition with the cover line “black girls rule”, a major advertiser had pulled out at the last minute on the grounds that the phrase was racist.

Iman added that she had found it difficult to persuade black models to pose for the cover. “I understood that – I didn’t want to be labelled a black model when I started, but now I do celebrate it and I see the difference.” [read more]

Proxy war could soon turn to direct conflict, analysts warn September 15, 2007

US strikes on Iran predicted as tension rises over arms smuggling and nuclear fears

The growing US focus on confronting Iran in a proxy war inside Iraq risks triggering a direct conflict in the next few months, regional analysts are warning.

US-Iranian tensions have mounted significantly in the past few days, with heightened rhetoric on both sides and the US decision to establish a military base in Iraq less than five miles from the Iranian border to block the smuggling of Iranian arms to Shia militias.

The involvement of a few hundred British troops in the anti-smuggling operation also raises the risk of their involvement in a cross-border clash.

US officers have alleged that an advanced Iranian-made missile had been fired at an American base from a Shia area, which if confirmed would be a significant escalation in the “proxy war” referred to this week by General David Petraeus, the US commander in Iraq.

“The proxy war that has been going on in Iraq may now cross the border. This is a very dangerous period,” Patrick Cronin, the director of studies at the International Institute for Strategic Studies, said.

Iran’s leaders have so far shown every sign of relishing the confrontation. The supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, declared yesterday that American policies had failed in the Middle East and warned: “I am certain that one day Bush and senior American officials will be tried in an international court for the tragedies they have created in Iraq.” [read more]

Mr Bush, your sheikh is dead September 15, 2007

Posted by infidelkafirwatch in Uncategorized.

Some may call it divine providence, some may call it Allah’s bidding; in the end it was up to real Iraq to intervene and shatter the “surge is a success” story sold to US and world public opinion by President George W Bush and his top man in Iraq, General David Petraeus.

Only hours before Bush recommended to the nation and the world what he had told Petraeus to recommend to Congress – in essence his roadmap toward counterinsurgency and endless military occupation of Iraq – a key player in the “success” story was killed, significantly right at the start of the holy Muslim month of Ramadan.

Sheikh Abdul Sattar Abu Risha – along with his two bodyguards was killed by a roadside bomb planted near his home in Ramadi, the capital of an Anbar province Petraeus had sworn was “pacified”.

 

Abu Risha, 37, was the leader of the Anbar Salvation Council, renamed Anbar Awakening – an alliance of about 200 Sunni sheikhs drawn mostly from the Dulaimi tribe and dozens of sub-clans who were fighting against al-Qaeda in the Land of the Two Rivers.

In his speech, Bush outlined the plan to leave more than 130,000 troops in the battle zone in Iraq next year, unless Petraeus and Bush decide further withdrawals are possible before that.
With regard to Abu Risha’s killing, as far as the White House is concerned it was the work of al-Qaeda (12 mentions of “al-Qaeda” in Bush’s speech). Were this to be the case, the “don’t mess with us” al-Qaeda message couldn’t be more devastating. Consider the chain of events of the past few days.

  • In a carefully stage-managed piece of theater, Bush visits al-Asad military air base in Anbar (not real Iraq) to stress his “surge” is working. He personally meets Abu Risha.
  • Osama bin Laden, looking like a clone of himself with a stick-on beard, releases his first video in almost three years, proving he’s alive and kicking. The video may or may be not be a fake.
  • Petraeus and US Ambassador in Iraq Ryan Crocker start their presentation in front of Congress, assuring the US and the world the “surge” is a “success”.
  • Bin Laden releases his second tape in four days, praising one of the September 11, 2001, “martyrs”. His image is on freeze-frame; his lips do not move.
  • Bush announces he will recommend to the nation what he told Petraeus to recommend to Congress: not a drawdown, but the actual extension of the “surge” until next summer.
  • Abu Risha, the man Petraeus relied on for the “success” of the “surge”, is killed in Anbar. No wonder Petraeus defined it as “a tragic loss”.
    The hit on Bush’s sheikh happened just 10 days after they met. Al-Qaeda had plenty of motives to order the hit. But so did other key players. [read more]
  • Clashes at Belgian anti-Islam rally September 15, 2007

    Posted by infidelkafirwatch in Uncategorized.
    1 comment so far

    Two leaders from the far-right Vlaams Belang party are among dozens of people arrested by Belgian police during an anti-Islam rally that had been banned by authorities.

    Police clashed with protesters who gathered in Brussels, the Belgian capital, to demonstrate against what they called “the Islamisation of Europe”.

    The march on Tuesday was timed to coincide with the sixth anniversary of the September 11 attacks in New York and organisers had predicted about 20,000 people would attend.

    In the end, only one hundredth of that number were reported to have turned up and were nearly outnumbered by reporters and police.

    ‘Inflammatory group’

    Freddy Thielemans, the mayor of Brussels, banned the rally last month, calling the organisers, Stop Islamisation of Europe, an inflammatory group and the demonstration a threat to public order.

    Thielmans said police made 154 “administrative arrests”.

    “I’m shocked. I thought we lived in a democratic country,” Anders Gravers, one of the members of SIOE – a loose alliance that has origins in the UK, Denmark and Germany, said.

    Police confirmed Dewinter and Vanhecke were to be charged for allegedly attacking the driver of an armoured vehicle that they were taken away in.

    The two men are members of the European parliament and two other MEPs were also arrested.

    Terry Davis, the head of the Council of Europe – a watchdog focusing mainly on human rights rather than the EU institution – called the protestors “bigots” and said they were a threat to European values.

    “It is very important to remember that the freedom of assembly and expression can be restricted to protect the rights and freedoms of others, including the freedom of thought, conscience and religion,” he said in a statement.

    “This applies to everyone in Europe, including the millions of Europeans of Islamic faith, who were the main target of today’s shameful display of bigotry and intolerance.”

    When the government declares this demonstration as illegal and sets a ban, then what do you expect?  This was illegal and the people who attended got what they deserved.

    Ahmadinejad Message to Saudi King September 15, 2007

    add a comment

    Saudi King Abdullah has received a message from the Islamic Republic of Iran’s president, conveyed to him by Iran’s special envoy and minister of information Gholamhossein Mohseni Ejeii. Iran and Saudi Arabia are 2 important regional countries with key roles in the region’s security, in OPEC and in the Organization of the Islamic Conference.

    That is why their level of ties is an important criterion to assess the region’s situation. This was a point reiterated by the Saudi king in his meeting with Ejeii, reiterating the need for continued bilateral consultations on regional issues. Riyadh’s foreign policy has in the past years turned toward solving regional crisis. Saudi officials decided to distance themselves from US militarist policies in the region.

    The Saudi king considers reinforcing ties with Iran to be important due to the regional situation and divisive US policies. Iran’s foreign policy priority is also based on boosting ties with Arab states and in this line Iran’s growing ties with the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council in the political and economic fields indicate the progress of this bilateral policy.

    Tehran and Riyadh also in their consultations discuss the situations in Iraq, Lebanon, Palestine and the Zionist Regime threats. And the message by the Islamic Republic of Iran’s president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to the Saudi king should be assessed from the angle of regional developments and reinforcing coordination in the Islamic world’s stances.  [source

    Before the Iraq war, the neo-cons put forward Ahmed Chalabi as the epitome of bravery. Sure, he was a charlatan, liar and fraud, but Iraq is now “liberated”, so what does he care?

    Fast forward to 2007 and the imminent strike against Iran, and who steps up? Amir Abbas Fakhrava. He also talks about George W. Bush in highly positive terms, advocates regime change in Tehran and believes that a little good ol’ bombing may help, too.

    ISRAELI WARPLANES INVADES SYRIAN AIR SPACE AND GET FIRED UPON BY SYRIA. September 6, 2007

    Here we see another example of the illegal state of Israel deliberate attention to provoke another war in the Middle East.  It is reported that Israeli warplanes armed with live weapons violated Syria’s airspace.  Syria responded by engaging the warplanes and forced the Israeli warplanes to drop their ammunition in the desert and flee Syria’s airspace.  Pilots sometimes jettison ammunition or extra fuel to make their aircraft lighter and easier to get away.  This was exercised by Israeli warplanes.

    This is another example of Israeli terrorism in the Middle East.  Although the bias media has down played this news it still is reaching out to people through other means. 

    Few question arise from this invasion:

    Why was Israeli warplanes violating Syrian’s airspace?

    How many warplanes were sent?

    What was their objective?

    Is this Israeli drawing Syria into a war, for US and Europe to get involved so that Syria can be divided like Iraq and Afghanistan?

    Not surprisingly, the media totally covered up the fact that Israel had violated Syrian’s airspace, making Israel the guilty party.  This is common reporting method for the media by deliberately misleading news and making Israel the innocent party.  Just to highlight some examples of the bias media reports:

    Syria has said its air defences opened fire on Israeli warplanes after they violated its airspace in the north of the country.

    Syrian officials said the defences forced the jets to drop ammunition over deserted areas and turn back, according to the official news agency, Sana.

    Israel’s military said it would not comment on the reports.

    Israel and Syria remain technically at war and tensions between them have been rising in recent months.

    The Syrian government has insisted that peace talks can be resumed only on the basis of Israel returning the Golan Heights, which it seized in 1967.

    Israeli authorities, for their part, have demanded that Syria abandon its support for Palestinian and Lebanese militant groups before talks can begin.

    The last peace talks between the two countries broke down in 2000.

    ‘Enemy aircraft’

    A Syrian military spokesman said the Israeli warplanes had flown into Syrian airspace at around 0100 local time on Thursday morning, Sana reported.

    “The Israeli enemy aircraft infiltrated into the Arab Syrian territory through the northern border, coming from the Mediterranean heading toward the eastern region, breaking the sound barrier,” he said.

    They were then engaged by Syrian air defence forces in the Tall al-Abyad, an area 160km (100 miles) north of Raqqa and near the border with Turkey, witnesses said.

    “Air defence units confronted them and forced them to leave after they dropped some ammunition in deserted areas without causing any human or material damage,” the spokesman said.

    Pilots sometimes jettison ammunition or extra fuel to make their aircraft lighter and easier to manoeuvre.

    Syria’s Information Minister, Mohsen Bilal, told al-Jazeera TV that his government was “seriously studying the nature of the response”.

    “Israel in fact does not want peace,” he said. “It cannot survive without aggression, treachery and military messages.”

    Tensions

    Officials in Damascus said Syrian forces last fired at Israeli warplanes in June 2006, when they flew over the summer residence of the Syrian president in Lattakia, while he was inside.

    Over the past few months, the leaders of both countries have both stressed that they do not want war.

    But both sides have also been preparing for possible conflict.

    In June, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert insisted his country did not want war with Syria, and that he had communicated this to Damascus through diplomatic channels.

    He also repeated his warning that a “miscalculation” could spark hostilities between the two.

    Mr Olmert’s statement came after the Israeli military staged major exercises in the Golan Heights. Syria is also reported to have recently built up its armaments along the border. [source]

    Abbas makes election law changes September 2, 2007

    Another corrupt leader on Israeli and US payroll (appointed to break down Palestine from the inside to secure the future of the self declared illegal state of israel).

    Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has announced changes in the election law which could boost his Fatah party against rivals Hamas.

    Under the new law, Palestinians will vote solely for party lists, while voting by district will be eliminated.

    Hamas, which took control of the Gaza Strip after fighting with Fatah in June, described the move as illegal.

    Mr Abbas revealed the changes as he met EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana in the West Bank city of Ramallah.

    Mr Solana is having talks with Palestinian and Israeli leaders to help prepare for an international Middle East peace conference planned for later this year.

    Former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair, who is special envoy for the Middle East peace sponsoring group known as the Quartet, is expected in the region later on Sunday.

    ‘No right’

    Palestinian officials said the decree on election law had already been signed and would be published later in the day.

    The decree also requires all election candidates to recognise the Fatah-dominated Palestine Liberation Organisation as the “sole, legitimate representative” of the Palestinian people, a position not accepted by Hamas.

    Hamas condemned Mr Abbas’ move.

    “The president doesn’t have the right to make any changes to the law,” Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri told AFP news agency.

    “He cannot conduct elections if Hamas doesn’t accept them.”

    Rivalry between Hamas and Fatah has intensified since Hamas swept to victory in elections last year.

    In 2006 half the seats were chosen on a national list and the other half by districts, where the Islamist movement reportedly had its biggest successes.

    The US "intellectually bankrupt" September 1, 2007

    Is it any surprise that once the heat is on, the fingers start pointing at others:

    The head of the British army during the Iraq invasion has said US post-war policy was “intellectually bankrupt”.

    In a Daily Telegraph interview, former chief of the general staff, Gen Sir Mike Jackson, added that US strategy had been “short-sighted”.

    He said former US defence secretary Donald Rumsfeld was “one of the most responsible for the current situation”.

    The Ministry of Defence said Sir Mike was a private citizen who was entitled to express his views.

    The US Department of Defense said: “Divergent viewpoints are a hallmark of open, democratic societies.”

    Sir Mike told the Daily Telegraph that Mr Rumsfeld’s claim that US forces “don’t do nation-building” was “nonsensical”.

    He criticised the decision to hand control of planning the administration of Iraq after the war to the Pentagon.

    He also described the disbanding of the Iraqi army and security forces after the overthrow of Saddam Hussein as “very short-sighted”.

    “We should have kept the Iraqi security services in being and put them under the command of the coalition,” he said.

    Marines Ordered To Execute Civilians In Nazi-Like Slaughter September 1, 2007

    The US style of winning HEARTS & MINDS of Iraqis..

    Thursday, August 30, 2007

    With evidence having emerged that marines were ordered by superiors to massacre women and children in Haditha in Iraq two years ago, combined with scores of other testimonies and reports of such barbaric demands being forced upon American troops daily, it is clear that organised execution and ritual slaughter is the set policy of the architects of aggression in the middle east.

    A military court heard Thursday that a US Marine was ordered to execute a room full of Iraqi women and children during the massacre in Haditha which left 24 people dead.

    Following a response to roadside bomb attack in November, 2005 Marines stormed houses in the village. At the first of the houses, Marine Lance Corporal, Humberto Mendoza, has given evidence that he was ordered to execute some of the occupants under the command of Sergeant Frank Wuterich. Mendoza stated he refused to do so, when confronted with a room full of women and children. Later he found the women and children dead. Mendoza had previously admitted shooting one male occupant of the house dead, under orders.

    AFP reports:

    At one house Wuterich gave an order to shoot on sight as Marines waited for a response after knocking on the door, said Mendoza.

    “He said ‘Just wait till they open the door, then shoot,'” Mendoza said.

    Mendoza then said he shot and killed an adult male who appeared in a doorway.

    During a subsequent search of the house, Mendoza said he received an order from another Marine, Lance Corporal Stephen Tatum, to shoot seven women and children he had found in a rear bedroom.

    “When I opened the door there was just women and kids, two adults were lying down on the bed and there were three children on the bed … two more were behind the bed,” Mendoza said.

    “I looked at them for a few seconds. Just enough to know they were not presenting a threat … they looked scared. I told him there were women and kids inside there. He said ‘Well, shoot them,'” Mendoza told prosecutor Lieutenant Colonel Sean Sullivan.

    “And what did you say to him?” Sullivan asked.

    “I said ‘But they’re just women and children.’ He didn’t say nothing.”

    Mendoza said he returned to a position at the front of the house and heard a door open behind him followed by a loud noise. Returning later that afternoon to conduct body retrieval, Mendoza said he found a room full of corpses.

    In previous testimony it has also been suggested that the troops stopped random passing cars, ordered passengers out and lined them up and shot them one by one at near-point blank range with M16 machine guns.

    Wuterich’s defense is expected to argue that he followed established combat zone rules of engagement. Given that Haditha is not an isolated incident this seems an accurate description.

    A 2006 article adapted from the book “Ten Excellent Reasons Not to Join the Military,” edited by Elizabeth Weill-Greenberg, documents many other testimonies of troops on the ground who have confirmed that they are routinely ordered to kill innocent civilians.

    There is constant pressure to kill Iraqi civilians, 22-year-old GI Darrell Anderson said. “At traffic stops we kill innocent people all the time. If you are fired on from the street, you are supposed to fire on everybody that is there. If I am in a market, I shoot people who are buying groceries.”

    War crimes in Iraq are not mere aberrations. They emanate from official policies regarding the aims and conduct of the occupation, the article concludes:

    It is official policy, for example, to use cluster bombs in populated areas. Soldiers and Marines merely carry out the policy. It was official policy, under Operation Iron Hammer, to put barbed wire around villages, to bulldoze crops, to bomb homes, and to hold families in jail until they released insurgent information. It was official policy to level Fallujah, a city of 300,000 people, as an act of collective punishment.

    The list goes on. It was official policy to torture detainees at Abu Ghraib, it was official policy to “kill all military age males” in Iraq, it is official policy to use radioactive Depleted Uranium weapons and deadly white phosphorus in civilian areas in Iraq. The wanton destruction from the air of cities, towns, and villages witnessed on the first night of the war and almost everyday since is official policy in Iraq.

    When will the official policies be recognized for what they are, official war crimes?

    The systematic killing of civilians in Iraq and throughout the middle east by aggressive forces under the control of the elite usurpers of our governments is clear. Our controlled media is also complicit in its ignorance, its pandering spin and the outright lies we continue to have to endure and break down with every passing day.

    —————————————————————————————-

    Prominent critics and commentators have blasted the mainstream media for failing to portray the brutal reality of the systematic policy of slaughter.

    Acclaimed director Brian De Palma, whose new film “Redacted” has stunned audiences with its graphic telling of the horrific true story of another Iraq war crime, has stated:

    “In Vietnam, when we saw the images and the sorrow of the people we were traumatizing and killing, we saw the soldiers wounded and brought back in body bags. We see none of that in this war. It’s all out there on the Internet, you can find it if you look for it, but it’s not in the major media. The media is now really part of the corporate establishment.”

    De Palma has asserted that it is only the brutal reality seen in the pictures and videos that are routinely ignored by the establishment media that will incense the public enough to force the conflict to be stopped.

    Paul Craig Roberts, former Secretary to the Treasury under Reagan, has also blasted the mainstream media in a powerful piece today stating:

    “The US media focuses on whether Republican Senator Larry Craig is a homosexual or has offended gays by denying being one of them. The run-up for the public’s attention is why a South Carolina beauty queen cannot answer a simple question about why her generation is unable to find the United States on a map.”

    Roberts describes Bush as “high on the list of mass murderers of all time”. With conservatively over one million Iraqis having lost their lives in this war “The vast majority of “kills” by the US military in Iraq and Afghanistan are civilians, the war criminal is in the living room, and no official notice is taken of the fact” he writes.

    He warns that the same will happen in Iran very soon if this administration and the power brokers behind it are not halted right away:

    “Encouraged by the indifference of both the American media and Christian churches to the massive casualties inflicted on Iraqi civilians, the Bush administration will not be deterred by the prospect of its air attacks inflicting massive casualties on Iranian civilians. Last summer the Bush administration demonstrated to the entire world its total disdain for Muslim life when Bush supported Israel’s month-long air attack on Lebanese civilian infrastructure and civilian residences. President Bush blocked the attempt by the rest of the world to halt the gratuitous murder of Lebanese civilians and infrastructure destruction. Clearly, turning the Muslim Middle East into a wasteland is the Bush policy. For Bush, civilian casualties are a non-issue. Hegemony uber alles.”

    Every instance described here provides evidence of direct violation of the Geneva Conventions, which state (Part IV, Article 48):combatants “shall at all times distinguish between the civilian population and combatants, between civilian objects and military objectives and, accordingly, shall direct their operations only against military objectives.”

    The conventions were established in the aftermath of the Nazi’s indiscriminate slaughter of millions of civilians throughout Europe. It is clear that our own modern day aggressors do not believe they are bound by the conventions, nor any international laws of war that have come before, and will do whatever it takes to ensure their empire building proceeds unimpeded.

    Unless we address the reality of the war crimes we have seen unfold in the last 6 years alone, and continue in our attempts to do the job that the corporate media whores are paid not to, we betray our ethical and moral principles, we betray our countries, and we betray the freedom that has been protected for so long by those before us.
