ANTI-MUSLIM SLURS SHOUTED DURING DETROIT ASSAULT – Authorities asked to probe attack as possible hate crime
(SOUTHFIELD, MI, 11/28/06) – On Tuesday, November 28, the Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MI) will hold a news conference to call on local and national law enforcement authorities to investigate an assault on a Detroit Muslim as a possible hate crime.
The 51-year-old victim, who is of Egyptian heritage, was allegedly dragged from his home on Monday evening and beaten by some 10 white people shouting anti-Muslim slurs. The slurs reportedly included: “You’re a f**king Arab,” “You’re a f**king Muslim,” “You’re not an American,” and “Go back to where you came from.” The victim was transported to a local hospital for treatment of injuries suffered in the attack.

9/11 and American Empire: Intellectuals Speak Out
David Ray Griffin, Peter Dale Scott, Peter Phillips, Kevin Ryan, Ray McGovern
Editors and contributors to the book, “9/11 and American Empire” assess the Bush administration’s responsibility for the attacks on 9/11, arguing that key administration officials either purposefully ignored the threats leading up to the attacks or were complicit in the planning them.
BBC Footage 9/11:The Twin Towers Shows Positive Proof of Explosives
” On September 7, 2006 the BBC showed a special anniversary program for the anniversary of 911 events. The show was called “911: The TwinTowers”. The video is of great significance as you can see and hear the Tower being demolished and hear the sequence of charges.
The sound allegedly has not been enhanced in any way and is even distorted by the Google encoding yet sets itself in accord with the testimony of most eyewitness testimony. That includes testimony from the FDNY firefighters.
The building had 114 floors and took approximately 10 seconds to collapse. In this video fourteen explosions can be heard in a period of 5 seconds dispelling any belief in a “pancake theory”.
9/11 and Iraq – The Concealed Connection!
No, Iraq was not involved with, nor did its leader support Al Qaeda. No, Iraq was not involved in the planning or operation of the 9/11 attacks. And no, not a single alleged hijacker was an Iraqi. It’s “no” to the Iraq nexus all the way down the line.
That fact is a logical certainty which most people understand on some level of awareness. The public realizes that the attacks of 9/11 and to the Bush/PNAC invasion of Iraq are somehow interwoven, but most Americans cannot bring themselves to deal with the correct cause and effect sequence: Iraq was in no way responsible for what happened on 9/11, but 9/11 was in every way responsible for what happened in Iraq.
Their next massacre
The Green Zone government and its militias are attacking civilians across Iraq to halt the resistance
The US and all occupying forces are legally and morally responsible for protecting all Iraqi civilians
No level of atrocity can break the geopolitical unity and sovereignty of Iraq
“There is no solution.”
We’ve destroyed Iraq and we’ve destroyed the region, and Americans need to know this. – There was no civil war in Iraq until we got there. And there was no civil war in Iraq, until we took certain steps to pit Sunnis against Shias. And now it is just too late. But, we need to know we are responsible for what’s happening in Iraq today.
Bury my heart in the Green Zone
Everyone is guilty in the ongoing Iraq tragedy. The US-trained new Iraqi army is infiltrated by militias, by death squads and even by al-Qaeda in Iraq. The SCIRI, Da’wa and the Kurds are only worried about their own interests, not the interests of Iraq as a nation. And the US – always hiding under the dubious mantra of “Iraqi democracy” – totally evades its responsibility in provoking the appalling chaos in the first place.
Paying The Price: Killing The Children Of Iraq
Sanctions enforced by the UN on Iraq since the Gulf War have killed more people than the two atomic bombs dropped on Japan in 1945, including over half a million children – many of whom weren’t even born when the Gulf War began.
The Iraq Study Group: Official damage control and cover-up
The Iraq Study Group (ISG) is a “bipartisan task force” created by the US Congress in response to the failure of the Bush administration to better manage the occupation of Iraq.
The Iraq Study Group is charged with bringing “fresh eyes” to the Middle East conflict. However, one glance at the directors of the ISG should remove any illusions. The ISG’s leaders are world-renowned American elites and Cold Warriors, each of whom played major roles in the crimes of the Reagan-Bush and Clinton administrations.
These are very old eyes, on very blood-soaked globalists who seek to fine-tune, perfect, and expand the war, not end it.
Impeachment Hearings for Bush & Co.? How about War Crimes Tribunals
The Bush Doctrine of taking “the battle to the enemy,” for example, is a direct repudiation of the United Nations Charter, which prohibits the use of international force unless in self-defense (after an armed attack across an international border) or related to a UN Security Council decision.
Lawyers File War Crimes Charges Against Rumsfeld And Others In German Court
On November 14, the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR), the International Federation for Human Rights, Germany’s Republican Attorneys’ Association, and other groups and individuals filed a formal complaint with the German Federal Prosecutor to open an investigation and, ultimately, a criminal prosecution of former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and other major U.S. officials. The complaint argues that Rumsfeld and other high-ranking civilian and military officials named as defendants in the case have committed war crimes, and in particular torture, against prisoners in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Guantánamo Bay. Following is an interview Revolution did with Michael Ratner, president of the CCR, who was among those in Germany on November 14 to file the complaint.
LDS Judge Jay Bybee and Donald Rumsfield Justifies Child Sex Abuse & Torture in Iraq!
The biggest story of the Iraq war is not about missing weapons of mass destruction, or about deep-cover CIA officers getting their covers blown by vengeful White House agents, or even about 896 dead American soldiers. These have been covered to one degree or another, and then summarily dismissed by the American mainstream news media. The biggest story of the Iraq war has not enjoyed any coverage in America, though it has been exploding across the international news media for several weeks now.
The biggest story of the Iraq war is about the torture of Iraqi children.
Depleted Uranium Situation Worsens
The delivery of at least one hundred GBU-28 “bunker buster” bombs containing depleted-uranium warheads by the United States to Israel for use against targets in Lebanon will result in additional radioactive and chemical toxic contamination, with consequent adverse health and environmental effects throughout the Middle East. Israeli tank gunners are also using depleted-uranium tank rounds, as photographs verify.
Today, US, British, and now Israeli military personnel are using illegal uranium munitions-America and the United Kingdom’s own “dirty bombs”-while US Army, US Department of Energy, US Department of Defense (DOD), and UK Ministry of Defence officials deny that there are any adverse health or environmental effects as a consequence of the manufacture, testing, or use of uranium munitions, so that they may avoid liability for the willful and illegal dispersal of a radioactive toxic material-depleted uranium (DU).

I have never been more ashamed of the US government
The villagers who walk the narrow streets of Daechuri, bowed by lifetimes of carrying heavy burdens and children on their backs, are now carrying burdens placed there by American imperial gluttony, and I, as an American, want to help them carry this burden, as many kind people all over the world have tried to help me carry mine.

Anbar Picture Grows Clearer, and Bleaker
The U.S. military is no longer able to defeat a bloody insurgency in western Iraq or counter al-Qaeda’s rising popularity there, according to newly disclosed details from a classified Marine Corps intelligence report that set off debate in recent months about the military’s mission in Anbar province. The Marines recently filed an updated version of that assessment that stood by its conclusions and stated that, as of mid-November, the problems in troubled Anbar province have not improved, a senior U.S. intelligence official said yesterday. “The fundamental questions of lack of control, growth of the insurgency and criminality” remain the same, the official said…

The “Gaza-Solution” and the Ongoing War on Islam
The central tenet of American foreign policy hasn’t changed since the early 1980s when Secretary of State Henry Kissinger summarized our involvement in the Iraq-Iran War saying, “I hope they kill each other.” Kissinger’s dictum reveals the basic racial and religious odium which animates the current policy and has become the organizing principle for maintaining the global empire.
