The Zionist Project in Palestine: Colonial Settlement, Land Robbery and Ethnic Cleansing

About 8,000 Jews were living in Palestine before 1882. Creation of a “Jewish State” in such a small country with such a small Jewish community, which owned virtually no land to settle on, was practically impossible. Consequently, building an exclusive Jewish State in Palestine implied bringing Jews from the four corners of the world, acquisition of the land and ethnically cleansing it from its indigenous Arab population.

Hovevei Zion, the precursor of the Zionist Organization, sponsored the first wave of pioneer settlers, which started in 1882 and ended in 1903. About 35,000 immigrants arrived in Palestine within this wave. Almost half of them left within several years of their arrival.

A pre-meditated and pre-planned campaign of land theft started shortly following the ethnic operations of 1948. A law was passed in the Israeli Knesset in 1950, the “Absentees Property Law “. According to this law, any body that was not present directly before, during or after the war was, regardless of the reason, defined as “absentee” and his land as surrendered. Thus it was confiscated.

David Ben-Gurion believed that the Zionists had to exert pressure to force the British to act. But if necessary, he wrote in his diary, “We must ourselves prepare to carry out the removal of the Palestinians”. (Michael Palumbo, The Palestinian Catastrophe, p. 4, citing Ben-Gurion’s Diary – published in Hebrew – vol. IV, p. 299)

Endorsing the Gitmo Kangaroo Courts despite the fact that they have been condemned by every human rights organization in the world

The latest edition of the American Journal of Imperial Law has an article by Harvard Law School’s Bemis Professor of International Law Detlev Vagts endorsing the Gitmo Kangaroo Courts despite the fact that they have been condemned by every human rights organization in the world as well as by the United States Supreme Court in Hamdan.

Whenever they are up and running the Gitmo Kangaroo Courts will constitute Stalinist Show Trials as well as Kangaroo Courts.

And the fact that the Bemis Professor of International Law at Harvard Law School has publicly endorsed the Gitmo Kangaroo Courts despite Hamdan proves that Harvard has a Kangaroo Law School:Harvard Kangaroo Law School.

Along with the 4 torture mongerers on the HKLS Faculty: Dersh;Parker;Goldsmith and Waco Phil Heymann. And their 2 certifiable war criminals: Dersh and Goldsmith. And the Dean of the Harvard Kangaroo Law School Kagan who boasted in the Washington Post that she is “so proud” to have hired their war criminal Goldsmith. And in the Boston Globe Kagan boasted that the “future of international legal studies” at Harvard Kangaroo Law School is in the “good hands” of their war criminal Goldsmith. The Harvard Kangaroo Law School Faculty and Deans are no longer fit to educate Lawyers, Members of the Bar, and Officers of the Court. They are a joke and a fraud. Groucho Marx would have a field day with them: Harvard is to Law Schools what Kangaroos and Torture are to Law.

Aid and Comfort for Torturers: US War Criminal

On January 24, 2003, National Guardsman Sean Baker, stationed as a military policeman at Guantanamo detention center, volunteered to be a mock prisoner, donning an orange suit and refusing to leave his cell as part of a training exercise. As planned, an Immediate Reaction Force team of MPs attempted to extract him from the cell. When he uttered the code word, “red,” indicating that this was a drill and that he’d had enough, one of the MPs “forced my head down against the steel floor and was sort of just grinding it into the floor. The individual then, when I picked up my head and said, ‘Red,’ slammed my head down against the floor,” says Baker. “I was so afraid, I groaned out, ‘I’m a U.S. soldier.’ And when I said that, he slammed my head again, one more time against the floor. And I groaned out one more time, I said, ‘I’m a U.S. soldier.’ And I heard them say, ‘Whoa, whoa, whoa,’ “. Even though, unlike if Baker had been a real prisoner, the “extraction” was called off part-way through, he was diagnosed with traumatic brain injury and was left with permanent injuries, including frequent epileptic-style seizures.

When asked what would have happened if he had been a real detainee, Baker told CBS’s 60 Minutes: “I think they would have busted him up. I’ve seen detainees come outta there with blood on ’em. …If there wasn’t someone to say, ‘I’m a U.S. soldier,’ if you were speaking Arabic or Pashto or Urdu or some other language in the camp, we may never know what would have happened to that individual.”

Terror War III: U.S. Forces Capture, Render Refugees From Somali “Regime Change”

Here’s how George W. Bush treats refugees fleeing from the carnage wrought by his “War on Terror”: he has them captured at gunpoint and “rendered” to torturers in his pay, where they are chained, blindfolded, beaten, stuffed into cages then “disappeared” into secret prisons notorious for their vile abuses. These captures of people trying to escape from the terrors of “regime change,” from the ravages of foreign armies invading their homes, include women and children, as attested by the story of 17-year-old Safia Benaouda, a pregnant Swedish woman who was grabbed – by American troops – as she fled from the bloodbath following the Bush-backed Ethiopian assault on Somalia, AP reports.

9/11 Muslim Victims : Fear and loathing on an American campus

On the night of 11 September 2001, Al Dershowitz of Harvard law school exploded in anger. Robert Fisk, he roared over Irish radio, was a dangerous man. I was “pro-terrorist”. I was “anti-American” and that, Dershowitz announced to the people of County Mayo, “is the same as anti-Semitic”.

Of course I had dared to ask the “Why” question; Why had 19 Arabs flown aircraft into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and Pennsylvania? Take any crime on the streets of London and the first thing Scotland Yard does is look for a motive. But when we had international crimes against humanity on the scale of New York, Washington and Pennsylvania, the first thing we were not allowed to do was look for a motive. How very odd. The 19 murderers came from a place called the Middle East. Was there a problem out there?

9/11 Victim Mohamed Harkat: His every move is carefully watched

A 38-year-old Algerian immigrant, Mr. Harkat has never been charged with a crime. But he did spend nearly four years jailed under an extraordinary Canadian law that declares him a possible al-Qaeda agent. Then, last June, he was released on house arrest to live at his in-laws’, after his French-Canadian wife vowed she would effectively serve as his warden.

Government agents don’t enter the Harkat home but follow the couple whenever they leave it. Ms. Harkat remembers that, at first, the agents wore combat boots, bulletproof vests and matching blue windbreakers. Now they come in street clothes, but their surveillance remains intense.

Muslim Scholar Banned from U.S., but Speaking from Afar : Islamophobia

Banned from U.S. soil three years ago, a prominent Muslim scholar accused of aiding terrorist activity spoke to a crowd via satellite this week in Gaston Hall on several major issues concerning relations between the Islamic world and the West.Projected live on a large screen, Tariq Ramadan – a Muslim academic whose visa was revoked by the State Department in 2004 – spoke in a three-day series of satellite conversations that began Tuesday.

Ramadan, who grew up in Geneva, is viewed by many as a reformer and is especially popular among young European Muslims. He had expected to teach at the University of Notre Dame three years ago, but the State Department rescinded his visa under a provision of the USA PATRIOT Act, citing donations he made to organizations that allegedly aid terrorists.

A War to Spread Terror

Unchallenged, America’s pursuit of global hegemony bears an eerie resemblance to the building of empires in the past. As this Administration expands its international dominance, the dictates of the Athenians to the Melians come to mind in which they are told that their submission to the rule of the Athenians would be of mutual benefit.

So as a subject of this world, I am asking all Americans, hyphenated or not, to defend their birthright, humanity, and justice. We must determine our own destiny today lest someone robs us of our future with their actions. America cannot afford to lose the battle for peace, justice and humanity because humanity has not found a place in this Administration. In the American ‘Dialogue’, we are the ‘strong’, for we have the power of the people, justice, and above all, the Constitution of the United States of America.

Four Years of Invasion Are Enough

Four years have now elapsed since the fall of Baghdad into the hands of the new Moguls, but the Iraqi people still have not gone out holding roses and waving white flags as in the Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and Blair dream. Instead of roses and signs of surrender, Baghdad – from the first days of occupation –prepared itself for the decisive battle that cannot be settled by military force alone with its warplanes raining down a torrent of internationally-prohibited bombs; it is rather settled by patience, faith in the just cause and confidence in victory.

Record of Iraq War Lies to Air April 25 on PBS : Uncover the Face of War Criminal

Bill Moyers has put together an amazing 90-minute video documenting the lies that the Bush administration told to sell the Iraq War to the American public, with a special focus on how the media led the charge. I’ve watched an advance copy and read a transcript, and the most important thing I can say about it is: Watch PBS from 9 to 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 25. Spending that 90 minutes on this will actually save you time, because you’ll never watch television news again – not even on PBS, which comes in for its share of criticism.

Civilian compensation claims: a glimpse into US crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan

http://www.wsws.org/articles/2007/apr2007/iraq-a14.shtml

The price of an Iraqi life – about $2500

In all, the military has paid more than $32 million to Iraqi and Afghan civilians for noncombat-related killings, injuries and property damage, an Army spokeswoman said. That figure does not include condolence payments made at a unit commander’s discretion.

32 million divided by 2000 equals 16,000, yet the 32 million also covers property damage which means that far less than 16,000 Iraqis have been compensated (average of $2000 for each murder) by the US government. The recent Lancet study shows that over 300,000 Iraqis have been murdered by US troops directly over the past 4 years.

“Sorry We Shot Your Kid, But Here’s $500” : US ‘Disgusting’ War Criminal

Here you will find, for example, that when the U.S. drops a bomb that goes awry, lands in an orchard, and does not detonate — until after a couple of kids go out to take a look — our military does not feel any moral or legal reason to compensate the family of the dead child because this is, after all, broadly speaking, a “combat situation.”

Also: What price (when we do pay) do we place on the life of a 9-year-old boy, shot by one of our soldiers who mistook his book bag for a bomb satchel? Would you believe $500? And when we shoot an Iraqi journalist on a bridge we shell out $2500 to his widow — but why not the measly $5000 she had requested?

Last June, The Boston Globe and The New York Times revealed that a local custom in Iraq known as “solatia” had now been adapted by the U.S. military — it means families receive financial compensation for physical damage or a loss of life. The Globe revealed that payoffs had “skyrocketed from just under $5 million in 2004 to almost $20 million last year, according to Pentagon financial data.”

“I want to kill somebody today,” : Low Live Mercenary America

Four Hired Guns in an Armored Truck: Bullets Flying, and a Pickup and A Taxi Brought to a Halt. Who Did the Shooting and Why? A Chaotic Day On Baghdad’s Airport Road

On the afternoon of July 8, 2006, four private security guards rolled out of Baghdad’s Green Zone in an armored SUV. The team leader, Jacob C. Washbourne, rode in the front passenger seat. He seemed in a good mood. His vacation started the next day.

“I want to kill somebody today,” Washbourne said, according to the three other men in the vehicle, who later recalled it as an offhand remark. Before the day was over, however, the guards had been involved in three shooting incidents. In one, Washbourne allegedly fired into the windshield of a taxi for amusement, according to interviews and statements from the three other guards.

Washbourne, a 29-year-old former Marine, denied the allegations. “They’re all unfounded, unbased, and they simply did not happen,” he said during an interview near his home in Broken Arrow, Okla.

The Growing Toll Of Iraqi Civilian Deaths

04/14/07 “ICH” — – “New York’ — — “The suffering that Iraqi men, women and children are enduring today is unbearable and unacceptable,” the director of operations of the International Committee of the Red Cross, Pierre Kraehenbuehl, stated Wednesday on releasing a ICRC report on the situation in Iraq after four years of the US-led war. Entitled “Civilians Without Protection – The Ever-Worsening Humanitarian Crisis in Iraq,” Mr. Kraehenbuehl added that the humanitarian situation is “affecting in one way or another, directly or indirectly, all Iraqis today.”

Scott Ritter: We (US) should acknowledge our true status as nothing more than a colony of Israel

“So if we are to continue to permit AIPAC to operate as an undeclared agent of a foreign nation, and to influence American foreign and national security policymaking at the expense of our Constitution, then we should acknowledge our true status as nothing more than a colony of Israel, pull down the Stars and Stripes and raise the Star of David over our nation’s capitol. While representing the final act of submission, it would also be the first truly honest act that occurred in Washington, D.C., in many years.”

The Israeli Occupation is murdering Childhood : War Criminal

The Palestinian children lately celebrated the Palestinian children’s day ­ (5th April). A series of formal and public festivals were held throughout the Palestinian areas; the massage was the need to secure a dignified and free life for them.

Since 2000, about 900 Palestinian children were murdered and 16.000 were injured by the Israeli forces, 750 of whom were left with permanent disabilities. About 6000 children (13-18 years old) were imprisoned by the Israeli occupation- 398 of whom are still in prisons up to this day, another 16 are administrative detainees and have been held without a trial for till now. Mohammed Khawaja 13-year-old is the youngest Palestinian child detainee in the Israeli jails.

Video : Palestinian Youngsters Used as Human Shields By Israeli Occupation Forces in Balata Refugee Camp

The following is a “new” (April 11th, 2007) video evidence that document another human rights violation by using Palestinian youths as human shields.

The video show Israeli occupation solider forcing two Palestinian youngsters to serve as human shields and protect the Israeli armor from stone throwers. The scene was taken in Balata Refugee Camp (Nablus, Occupied Palestine) by a filmmaker from RJI (blog) who caught the scene and other shots of the military operation and home demolition on tape.

The video talks for itself. Unfortunately not all war crimes and human rights violations such as this one can be documented, however, so many documentaries were seen yet, Israeli occupation forces still escape the justice.

Making Love, Money and War – Wolfowitz’s Real Crimes

The flak that the World Bank’s President Paul Wolfowtiz is getting currently really misses his main crimes: The invasion and occupation of Iraq and for waging the endless war of state terror. As Rumsfeld’s second-in-command Mr. Wolfowitz bears direct personal and official responsibility for the illegal war of aggression on Iraq and for posing threats to international peace.

The crime of war of aggression is the one of the most serious violation of international law.

75,000 Voter Registration Cards Found in Trash Bin in Atlanta

ATLANTA (AP) — The Georgia Secretary of State’s office has begun an investigation into who threw more than 75,000 Fulton County voter registration cards into a trash bin.

The cards contained a voter’s full name, address and Social Security number. The office says a random sampling showed many of the cards were for active voters.

The Apostles of Deception

What passes for Christianity among the people, like so many things American, is not the genuine article. The sermons that rise from many of the pulpits of the churches of America are, I suspect, as counterfeit as a six dollar bill; as phony as the people running the country. But those whose faith is blind are incapable of seeing truth. That is the trouble with blind faith. It does not, it cannot, see. I have always been wary of organized religion.

Every pastor, every minister of every church in the land should denounce what is happening in America and violently projected upon the world. They should criticize the wretched lies of the president and his murderous regime. They should condemn union busting, racism and sexism, corporate greed and war. They should deplore the obscene accumulation of property and wealth, while emphasizing service to the community and the poor. Most often, however, a perverted version of Christianity gives the appearance of moral credence to war and conquest.
