1 in 100 US adults behind bars : New study

1 in 100 US adults behind bars : New study
By ADAM LIPTAK

The US jails more people than : Iran , China , or any other country in the world .
The breakdown of numbers for Black people and Hispanics are incredible . Keeping people in jail as slaves is an industry .

Published: February 28, 2008

For the first time in the nation’s history, more than one in 100 American adults is behind bars, according to a new report.

Text of the Report (pewcenteronthestates.org)

Nationwide, the prison population grew by 25,000 last year, bringing it to almost 1.6 million. Another 723,000 people are in local jails. The number of American adults is about 230 million, meaning that one in every 99.1 adults is behind bars.

Incarceration rates are even higher for some groups. One in 36 Hispanic adults is behind bars, based on Justice Department figures for 2006. One in 15 black adults is, too, as is one in nine black men between the ages of 20 and 34.

The report, from the Pew Center on the States, also found that only one in 355 white women between the ages of 35 and 39 are behind bars but that one in 100 black women are.

The report’s methodology differed from that used by the Justice Department, which calculates the incarceration rate by using the total population rather than the adult population as the denominator. Using the department’s methodology, about one in 130 Americans is behind bars.

Either way, said Susan Urahn, the center’s managing director, “we aren’t really getting the return in public safety from this level of incarceration.”

But Paul Cassell, a law professor at the University of Utah and a former federal judge, said the Pew report considered only half of the cost-benefit equation and overlooked the “very tangible benefits — lower crime rates.”

Less Than Half the World Believes al Qaeda Was Behind 9/11 Attacks

Less Than Half the World Believes al Qaeda Was Behind 9/11 Attacks

By Joshua Holland, AlterNet. Posted September 11, 2008.

A poll of 16,000 people in 17 countries reveals the damage done to the credibility of the United States by the Bush administration.

An international poll released this week by the Project on International Policy Attitudes (PIPA) found that outside the United States, many are skeptical that al Qaeda was really responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks.

Sixteen thousand people in 17 countries — allies and adversaries in Asia, Europe, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East — were asked the open-ended question: “Who do you think was behind the 9/11 attacks?”

On average, fewer than half of all respondents said al Qaeda (although there was significant variation between countries and regions). Fifteen percent said the United States government itself was responsible for the attacks, 7 percent cited Israel, and fully 1 in 4 said they just didn’t know. Read the rest of this entry »

“The Shadow Factory:

The Ultra-Secret NSA from 9/11 to the Eavesdropping on America”

By Democracy Now!

14/10/08 — The Bush administration’s wiretapping program has come under new scrutiny this week. Two influential congressional committees have opened probes into allegations US intelligence spied on the phone calls of American military personnel, journalists and aid workers in Iraq. We speak to James Bamford about the NSA’s spying on Americans, the agency’s failings pre-9/11 and the ties between NSA and the nation’s telecommunications companies.

Iraqi MP: Peshmerga – not al-Qaeda – targeting Christians in Mosul
Posted : Tue, 14 Oct 2008 15:00:29 GMT
Author : DPA

Baghdad- An Iraqi Sunni MP Tuesday accused Kurdish militias of being responsible for the recent campaign against the Christian community in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul that has driven hundreds of families from their homes. “The Kurdish militias – and not al-Qaeda militants – are behind the attacks against Christians,” Osama al-Najifi, a native of Mosul himself, told Deutsche Presse-Agentur dpa.

Pointing at the Peshmerga, al-Najifi said the Kurdish militia had “completely infiltrated Iraqi military forces in Mosul.”

Kurdish militias behind the massacres of the Christians in Mosul

Roads to Iraq

October 12, 2008

Few minutes ago, Aljazeera quoted a statement by the so called “Al-Qaeda” denies any involvement in the bloody campaign against the Christians in Mosul saying:

Al-Qaeda has evidence that the Kurdish militia’s involvement in displacing and killing campaign of the Christians in order to control certain parts of the province.

You can see Iraqi newspaper Azzaman’s confirmation in its headline today “Militias gunmen of powerful government parties roam the streets of Mosul chanting threat slogans“.

Iraqi MP Al-Najafi from the “Iraqi List” confirms this information saying:

Kurdish Peshmerga militias are behind the forced displacement of Christians in the Mosul. The military forces in Mosul are infiltrated by the Kurdish militia using military vehicles to threat the Christians.

Kirkuk’s Archbishop Louis Sako warned last Thursday of campaigns against Christians in Iraq saying:

Brutal political goals (…) to emigrate, or force us to cooperate with parties that we do not want their agendas.

The London Daily Express, March 24, 1933
Samuel Untermyer

Few people know the facts about the singular event that helped spark what ultimately became known as World War II – the international Jewish declaration of war on Germany shortly after Adolf Hitler came to power and well before any official German government sanctions or reprisals against Jews were carried out. The March 24, 1933 issue of The Daily Express of London (shown above) described how Jewish leaders, in combination with powerful international Jewish financial interests, had launched a boycott of Germany for the express purpose of crippling her already precarious economy in the hope of bringing down the new Hitler regime. It was only then that Germany struck back in response. Thus, if truth be told, it was the worldwide Jewish leadership – not the Third Reich – that effectively fired the first shot in the Second World War. Prominent New York attorney Samuel Untermyer (above right) was one of the leading agitators in the war against Germany, describing the Jewish campaign as nothing less than a “holy war.”

Long before the Hitler government began restricting the rights of the German Jews, the leaders of the worldwide Jewish community formally declared war on the “New Germany” at a time when the U.S. government and even the Jewish leaders in Germany were urging caution in dealing with the new Hitler regime.

The war by the international Jewish leadership on Germany not only sparked definite reprisals by the German government but also set the stage for a little-known economic and political alliance between the Hitler government and the leaders of the Zionist movement who hoped that the tension between the Germans and the Jews would lead to massive emigration to Palestine. In short, the result was a tactical alliance between the Nazis and the founders of the modern-day state of Israel – a fact that many today would prefer be forgotten.

To this day, it is generally (although incorrectly) believed that when Adolf Hitler was appointed German chancellor in January of 1933, the German government began policies to suppress the Jews of Germany, including rounding up of Jews and putting them in concentration camps and launching campaigns of terror and violence against the domestic Jewish population.

While there were sporadic eruptions of violence against Jews in Germany after Hitler came to power, this was not officially sanctioned or encouraged. And the truth is that anti-Jewish sentiments in Germany (or elsewhere in Europe) were actually nothing new. As all Jewish historians attest with much fervor, anti-Semitic uprisings of various degrees had been ever-present in European history.

In any case, in early 1933, Hitler was not the undisputed leader of Germany, nor did he have full command of the armed forces. Hitler was a major figure in a coalition government, but he was far from being the government himself. That was the result of a process of consolidation which evolved later.
