December 31, 2008 –Holocaust denial is anti-Semitic. But I’m not talking about World War II, Mahmoud Ahmedinijad, or Ashkenazi Jews. What I’m referring to is the holocaust we are all witnessing and responsible for in Gaza today and in Palestine over the last 60 years. By definition, a holocaust is a mass slaughter of people or a thorough destruction involving extensive loss of life, especially through fire. There isn’t a more accurate description of the hell that US-armed and –funded Israeli Occupation Forces are unleashing on the people of Gaza at this moment. Since Arabs are Semites, US-Israeli policy doesn’t get more anti-Semitic than this. Read the rest of this entry »

ISRAELI LEAKS MONEY-LAUNDERING INFO ON U.S. CONGRESS! REVEALS HOW ISRAEL MIS-USES FOREIGN AID FROM USA TO “BRIBE” CONGRESS WITH CAMPAIGN FUNDS

ISRAELI LEAKS MONEY-LAUNDERING INFO ON U.S. CONGRESS! REVEALS HOW ISRAEL MIS-USES FOREIGN AID FROM USA TO “BRIBE” CONGRESS WITH CAMPAIGN FUNDS

New York, NY — As I write this report, it is 3:12 in the morning. I was awoken by repeated phone calls, which, to my complete shock, were coming from from Jerusalem, Israel.

On the phone was an Israeli who claimed to be completely knowledgeable about something that I have reported on my web site for several years and he was about to change my life by providing me proof.

For years, my former radio show and my web site have been the ONLY media outlets ever to report the vast money-laundering and bribery scheme perpetrated by the Israeli government with members of the United States Congress as co-conspirators.

The scheme works like this: The U.S. Congress votes to send between $3 Billion and $6 Billion free cash to Israel every year under the guise of “foreign aid.” When the money arrives, the Israeli government takes several hundred million and puts it aside to be sent back to the USA through Jewish Political Action Committees, and donated to the political campaigns of the Congress members most friendly to Israel. By funding Israel, certain members of Congress actually guarantee they’ll have enough campaign cash to get re-elected.

A Letter to the US Media

We Will Return

December 31, 2008

Dear Editor

Imagine if more than 63 thousand Americans were massacred in a couple of hour’s campaign of F-16 bombing. This number represents (the percentage) the number of Palestinians killed by Israel when it launched its massive air strikes in Gaza on Saturday. A friend of mine in Gaza tells me that hundreds are still buried under the rubble and the toll of deaths could easily reach thousands .Already there’s more than 1700 injured with many in serious conditions.


Imagine if all this carnage is being paid for by your tax money.

An Israeli War Crimes Tribunal (ICTI) May be the Only Deterrent to a Global War

An Israeli War Crimes Tribunal (ICTI) May be the Only Deterrent to a Global War

Global Research, December 31, 2008

The United Nations General Assembly must immediately establish an International Criminal Tribunal for Israel (ICTI) as a “subsidiary organ” under U.N. Charter Article 22. The ICTI would be organized along the lines of the International Criminal Tribunal for Yugoslavia (ICTY), which was established by the Security Council.

The purpose of the ICTI would be to investigate and prosecute Israeli war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide against the Peoples of Lebanon and Palestine.

The establishment of ICTI would provide some small degree of justice to the victims of Israeli war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide against the Peoples of Lebanon and Palestine–just as the ICTY has done in the Balkans. Furthermore, the establishment of ICTI by the U.N. General Assembly would serve as a deterrent effect upon Israeli leaders such as Prime Minister Olmert, Foreign Minister Livni, Defense Minister Barak, Chief of Staff Ashkenazi and Israel’s other top generals that they will be prosecuted for their further infliction of international crimes upon the Lebanese and the Palestinians.

Without such a deterrent, Israel might be emboldened to attack Syria with the full support of the Likhudnik Bush Jr. Neoconservatives, who have always viewed Syria as “low-hanging fruit” ready to be taken out by means of their joint aggression. If Israel attacks Syria as it did when it invaded Lebanon in 1982, Iran has vowed to come to Syria’s defense.

And of course Israel and the Bush Jr administration very much want a pretext to attack Iran. This scenario could readily degenerate into World War III.

For the U.N. General Assembly to establish ICTI could stop the further development of this momentum towards a regional if not global catastrophe.

UN official says Israel responsible for breaking truce with Gaza

By The Associated Press

Last update – 14:55 30/12/2008

Palestinians in Gaza believed Israel had called a 48-hour lull in retaliatory attacks with Hamas when Israel Air Force warplanes launched a massive bombardment of militant installations in the Gaza Strip, a UN official said Monday.

Karen Abu Zayd, commissioner of the UN Relief and Works Agency which helps Palestinian refugees, raised the possible violation of an informal truce in a video press conference with UN reporters from her base in Gaza.

Israel’s UN Mission referred any comment on the reported lull to Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s office in Jerusalem. Olmert’s office did not answer telephone calls for comment early Tuesday morning.

Gaza: the logic of colonial power

Gaza: the logic of colonial power

As so often, the term ‘terrorism’ has proved a rhetorical smokescreen under cover of which the strong crush the weak

Nir Rossen, Guardian UK

I have spent most of the Bush administration’s tenure reporting from Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Somalia and other conflicts. I have been published by most major publications. I have been interviewed by most major networks and I have even testified before the senate foreign relations committee. The Bush administration began its tenure with Palestinians being massacred and it ends with Israel committing one of its largest massacres yet in a 60-year history of occupying Palestinian land. Bush’s final visit to the country he chose to occupy ended with an educated secular Shiite Iraqi throwing his shoes at him, expressing the feelings of the entire Arab world save its dictators who have imprudently attached themselves to a hated American regime.

Once again, the Israelis bomb the starving and imprisoned population of Gaza. The world watches the plight of 1.5 million Gazans live on TV and online; the western media largely justify the Israeli action. Even some Arab outlets try to equate the Palestinian resistance with the might of the Israeli military machine. And none of this is a surprise. The Israelis just concluded a round-the-world public relations campaign to gather support for their assault, even gaining the collaboration of Arab states like Egypt.

A Letter to Mr. Mahmoud Abbas: Your Silence to the Massacres is Deafening

A Letter to Mr. Mahmoud Abbas

Your Silence to the Massacres is Deafening

By Rashid Abu-GhazalahSir,

December 31, 2008 “Information ClearinghouseI am writing this letter to ask you to leave your barren position as President of the Palestinian Authority (PA). You have had ample time to pursue your “two-state” peace process that your predecessor Yasser Arafat kicked-off during the signing of the now-defunct Oslo agreements. Are your people liberated? Have the illegal settlements stopped encroaching on your lands? In short, did your negotiations help alleviate the pain and suffering of the occupied? The answer is a big colossal “no” to each of the posted questions.

As an institution, a government should have jurisdiction over a defined geo-political area. How could you call yourself a government while there is no Palestinian state? How could you maintain a constitution when Palestine is not defined?

Alas, your “authority” has complied with UN resolution 242; by recognizing the state of Israel while the reciprocal response was not of the same weight. Israel “recognized” the PA as the sole representative of the Palestinian people and it had not, as of yet, retreated to the 1967 borders that you wish to establish your rule over. Since the “peace” process began, terra nullius was being adopted by Israel at an ever-increasing rate and the colonization of the West Bank grew exponentially. Sir, you abandoned 1.5 million Palestinians in Gaza for your own political gain. While people starve and are being massacred in Gaza, you still speak in terms of sectarian politics.

As a leader, your silence to the massacres is deafening. As a leader, your inept attitude is demoralizing. Therefore, I ask you to resign from your post, dissolve the PA, and make demands from the occupiers to ensure the welfare of the occupied (as stipulated in the 3rd and 4th Geneva Conventions).

Rashid Abu-Ghazalah

TUTU: ‘Gaza attack akin to war crimes’

‘Gaza attack akin to war crimes’

Dec 28

Israel’s bombardment of Gaza “bears all the hallmarks of war crimes”, Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu said in a statement on Sunday.

“In the context of total aerial supremacy, in which one side in a conflict deploys lethal aircraft against opponents with no means of defending themselves, the bombardment bears all the hallmarks of war crimes.”

The attacks, in retaliation for rockets fired by the Palestinians, would not contribute to the security of Israel, he said.

“It is a blight not only on the Middle East, but on the entire world – and particularly world leaders who have consistently failed the people of Palestine and Israel over the past 60 years.”

About 270 people were killed in the attacks on Saturday.

Actresses refuse to be linked to ‘unethical’ business

Hollywood stars shun pro-Israeli diamond store

Salma Hayek, Halle Berry, Sharon Stone and Drew Barrymore rejected use of their images on Leviev’s website

DUBAI (AlArabiya.net)

Hollywood stars have called for their pictures to be removed from the website of a diamond company that is associated with settlement expansion in Israel and human rights violations in Africa.

The diamond stores owned by Jewish-American billionaire Lev Leviev had to remove pictures of several actresses after they complained of being linked to a company that funds settlements in the Palestinian occupied territories, a statement issued by the pro-Palestinian human rights group Adalah- New York said.

The actresses include Salma Hayek, Sharon Stone, Whitney Houston, Halle Berry, Drew Barrymore, Brooke Shields, Andie Macdowell, and Lucy Liu.

The celebrities were contacted by the rights group Adalah and the New York based ‘Jews Against the Occupation’ and asked them to distance themselves from a corporation that supports the Zionist project.

Tens of Thousands Protest Facebook Ban of Breastfeeding Photos

Tens of Thousands Protest Facebook Ban of Breastfeeding Photos

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, December 28, 2008

A photo of a baby breastfeeding is obscene, says Facebook, and it has banned all breastfeeding photos on its social networking website. Photos of babies drinking melamine-contaminated infant formula out of Bisphenol-A plastic baby bottles, however, are perfectly acceptable.

Intelligent women aren’t happy about this, and they’ve staged a massive online protest starting with a Facebook group: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=2…

The protest says, “Facebook, we expect more from you, and we expect you to realize that nursing moms everywhere have a right to show pictures of their babies eating, just like bottle-fed babies have a right to be seen. In an effort to appease the closed-minded, you are only serving to be detrimental to babies, women, and society.”

I couldn’t agree more. Modern society has isolated itself from the natural world to such a sick degree that even a human baby nourishing itself from its mother’s own breast is considered obscene! The same people that made this Facebook censorship decision will, of course, go home at night to their sex partners and fondle each other’s breasts (and other body parts), which leads to the conclusion that they don’t think their own body parts are obscene, they just think that everybody else’s body parts are obscene!

Le Monde diplomatique: There is growing Islamophobia in India

’People lived separately but side by side. That is now under threat’

Islamic India

There is growing Islamophobia in India as the BJP’s systematic policy of hate, and terrorism, claimed in the name of Islam, converge. Meanwhile Muslims’ traditional ally, Congress, in power for four years, has done little to address their poverty and disadvantage. So how will they vote in this spring’s national elections?

By Wendy Kristianasen

A week after the Mumbai attacks, the Congress party, which heads the ruling coalition of India, surprised everyone by winning three out of five states, including New Delhi, in partial state elections. Congress seemed tired after four years in power and was reeling after Mumbai and the economic crisis. Yet it prised the important tourist state of Rajasthan from the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), even though the BJP was certain it would pick up votes after Mumbai by stressing the government’s security failures. “The BJP put out full-page ads with the word ‘Terror’ in big bold letters with splashes of blood around it and ‘Vote BJP for security’,” said Javed Anand, a writer, activist and secular Muslim. “A lot of people were worried, including us. But the BJP’s hate tactics didn’t work; people voted for bread-and-butter issues.”

US-NATO-ISAF Must Punish All Hindu Terrorists Who Killed Christians

US-NATO-ISAF Must Punish All Hindu Terrorists Who Killed Christians

By Chad Hazlett

(InformPress. com) – The terror attacks on Mumbai made headlines around the world. When the dust settled, we found ourselves asking the same questions: “How did this happen?” and “What could we have done to prevent this?” But while India and the world contemplates the causes and consequences of these attacks, we ignore India’s Hindu Terrorism: From late August through October 2008, organized Hindu extremist groups committed systematic attacks killing more than 100 people, mostly Christians, in the eastern India state of Orissa. Most worrying, the Hindu terrorists responsible for Orissa’s violence remain at-large and have explicitly threatened to repeat their attacks after December 25, 2008.

Three Hindu extremist groups – the RSS, VHP, and the Bajrang Dal – are responsible for this autumn’s violence, destroying some 4500 homes and burning 147 churches in India. The dead are mostly Christians and some moderate Hindus. Father Akbar Digal, a Christian, was beheaded after three times refusing to convert to Hinduism. Gayadhar Digal, a Hindu, was hacked to death, and his wife and son nearly killed for appearing sympathetic to Christianity. Others have been burned alive and beaten, then buried alive. Some 40,000-60,000 sought refuge in the forests where they were further hunted. Hundreds remain missing. Over 11,000 remain displaced and the attackers have threatened to kill them upon returning if they do not convert to Hinduism.
