FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Thursday, Jan. 22, 2009

Contact: Suzanne Trimel, 212-633-4150, strimel@aiusa.org(New York) — Saying doctors are finding new and unexplained patterns of injury among the wounded in Gaza, Amnesty International today called on the Israeli authorities to urgently disclose all weapons and munitions their forces used during military operations to prevent the loss of more lives.“It is vital and urgent that the Israeli authorities disclose all relevant information including what weapons and munitions they used,” said Donatella Rovera, who is leading Amnesty International’s investigations team in Gaza. “More lives must not be lost because doctors do not know what caused their patients’ injuries and what medical complications may occur. They have to be fully informed so that they can provide life-saving care.”

Human Rights Council Resolution on the Grave Violations of Human Rights in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (Jan. 12, 2009)

Click here for document (approximately 3 pages)

The Human Rights Council, an inter-governmental United Nations body composed of 47 States in charge of addressing human rights violations and making recommendations on them, passed a Resolution “[s]trongly condemn[ing] the ongoing Israeli military operation carried out in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, particularly in the occupied Gaza Strip, which have resulted in massive violations of human rights of the Palestinian people and systematic destruction of the Palestinian infrastructure.”

The Council called “for the immediate cessation of Israeli military attacks throughout the Palestinian Occupied Territory, in particular in the Occupied Gaza Strip” and for an immediate withdraw of Israeli military from Gaza. According to the Council, the military attacks have so far killed “more than 900 and the injury to more than 4000 Palestinians, including a large number of women and children.” The Council also demanded that Israel “respect its commitment within the peace process towards the establishment of the independent sovereign Palestinian state with east Jerusalem as its capital, living in peace and security with all its neighbors.”

According to the Resolution, the siege of the Gaza Strip, which, inter alia, prohibited access of humanitarian aid to the territory, was in violation of international humanitarian law and had to be lifted immediately. The international community was called upon to assist in the aim of “putting an immediate end to the current military aggression in Gaza” and to the grave violations committed by Israel.

The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights was also requested to issue a report on the violations of human rights of the Palestinians by Israel. In addition, the Council decided to send out an independent international fact-finding mission, “to investigate all violations of international human rights law and International Humanitarian Law by the occupying Power, Israel, against the Palestinian people … due to the current aggression, and call[ed] upon Israel not to obstruct the process of investigation and to fully cooperate with the mission.”

Thirty-three countries voted in favor of the resolution, 13 abstained from voting and only Canada voted against it.

U.N. investigator: Evidence of Israeli war crimes

U.N. investigator: Evidence of Israeli war crimes

JERUSALEM (JTA) — There is evidence that Israel committed war crimes during its operation in the Gaza Strip, a United Nations official said.

U.N. investigator Richard Falk, whose official title is U.N. special rapporteur on human rights in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip, called for an independent inquiry into the issue on Thursday, Reuters reported.

Falk, who is Jewish, compared Israel’s operation in civilian areas and its sealing of Gaza’s borders to the Warsaw Ghetto.

“To lock people into a war zone is something that evokes the worst kind of international memories of the Warsaw Ghetto and sieges that occur unintentionally during a period of wartime,” he said.

Falk added that the entire civilian population has likely been scarred for life by the operation and that all the residents of Gaza can be considered casualties of the Israeli assault.

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert appointed Justice Minister Daniel Friedmann to look into issues relating to potential legal suits against Israel or Israeli officials over strikes against civilians in Gaza.

Fatah fears Gaza conflict has put Hamas in the ascendancy

Palestinian party created by Yasser Arafat suffers sharp decline in support

Mahmoud Abbas attempted to blame Hamas for Israel’s attacks on Gaza

The Islamic movement Hamas is taking over from Fatah, the party created by Yasser Arafat, as the main Palestinian national organisation as a result of the war in Gaza, says a leading Fatah militant. “We have moved into the era of Hamas which is now much stronger than it was,” said Husam Kadr, a veteran Fatah leader in the West Bank city of Nablus, recently released after five-and-a-half years in Israeli prisons.

“Its era started when Israel attacked Gaza on 27 December.”

Israel’s Lies

Israel’s Lies

Henry Siegman

Jan 22, 2009

Western governments and most of the Western media have accepted a number of Israeli claims justifying the military assault on Gaza: that Hamas consistently violated the six-month truce that Israel observed and then refused to extend it; that Israel therefore had no choice but to destroy Hamas’s capacity to launch missiles into Israeli towns; that Hamas is a terrorist organisation, part of a global jihadi network; and that Israel has acted not only in its own defence but on behalf of an international struggle by Western democracies against this network.

I am not aware of a single major American newspaper, radio station or TV channel whose coverage of the assault on Gaza questions this version of events. Criticism of Israel’s actions, if any (and there has been none from the Bush administration), has focused instead on whether the IDF’s carnage is proportional to the threat it sought to counter, and whether it is taking adequate measures to prevent civilian casualties.

Official: UN may prosecute Bush administration, regardless of US action

Official: UN may prosecute Bush administration, regardless of US action

David Edwards

Published: Thursday January 22, 2009

The UN’s special torture rapporteur called on the US Tuesday to pursue former president George W. Bush and defence secretary Donald Rumsfeld for torture and bad treatment of Guantanamo prisoners.

“Judicially speaking, the United States has a clear obligation” to bring proceedings against Bush and Rumsfeld, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Torture Manfred Nowak said, in remarks to be broadcast on Germany’s ZDF television Tuesday evening.

He noted Washington had ratified the UN convention on torture which required “all means, particularly penal law” to be used to bring proceedings against those violating it.

“We have all these documents that are now publicly available that prove that these methods of interrogation were intentionally ordered by Rumsfeld,” against detainees at the US prison facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, Nowak said.

“But obviously the highest authorities in the United States were aware of this,” added Nowak, who authored a UN investigation report on the Guantanamo prison.

Bush stepped down from power Tuesday, with Barack Obama becoming the 44th president of the United States.

EXCLUSIVE… 9/11, What’s Wrong With This Picture?

EXCLUSIVE… 9/11, What’s Wrong With This Picture?

Submitted by toast on 2008, December 19 – 11:45pm.

KnowTheLies has reviewed the content herein and agrees the author, Robert Singer, has presented a new and different perspective on the events of 9/11.

And finally a warning from President Bush, “Let us never tolerate
outrageous conspiracy theories” aired on national television after the
attacks of 9/11 and right before the Patriot Act was forced down Congress.
Super misinformation.
Google “9/11 conspiracy” and you get 134,000,000 results.
Google “9/11 outrageous conspiracy” you get 556,000 results.
There is a 9/11-truth movement in every major city in the United States.
9/11 conspiracy theories are allowed and even encouraged. Could the 9/11
Truth movement be the cover for another story?

Many official government stories are so ridiculous that a select group of people some call the puppet masters don’t expect you to believe them. Disinformation is misleading information that is true, deliberately announced publicly or leaked by a government or an intelligence agency to sow confusion and undermine credibility. Misinformation is false or inaccurate information, which is deliberately intended to deceive.

The BBC’s ‘WTC 7 Collapsed
At 4:54 p.m.’ Videos Lie

“We’ve had such terrible loss of credibility, maybe the smartest thing to do is, bury it. And so we made that decision to bury, and then we watched the videos, disappear.”

At 21:54 GMT on 9/11/2001 the BBC announced that WTC 7 had collapsed. There was just one problem with this news: WTC 7 did not collapse until 22:20 GMT.The videos below show the BBC World broadcast.

You Tube Expands 9/11 Truth Purge 230109top

Paul Joseph Watson

Prison Planet.com

Friday, January 23, 2009

You Tube has permanently suspended another major 9/11 truth account in a continuation of the purge that began following efforts by the establishment to smear the 9/11 truth movement as terrorist propaganda.

You Tube has previously been caught blocking 9/11 truth videos from entering into top ranking charts for both views and comments despite their enduring popularity.

It also has a record of wanton censorship in deleting videos that are artistically crafted compilations and the furthest possible thing from copyright violation, such as the “Question Your Reality” video.

You Tube has now completely deleted the “OneDeadDJ” user account, which was used to display videos on Prison Planet.com, and in particular video clips relating to the BBC reporting the collapse of Building 7 over 20 minutes in advance.

US forces in Iraq kill three brothers in a house raid

Middle East News

Jan 22, 2009, 13:48 GMT

Baghdad – US forces killed on Thursday three brothers in a house raid in northern Iraq, police sources said.

US forces stormed the house in the village of Youssifia, south of the northern city of Mosul, a police source told the Voices of Iraq news agency (VOI) without giving further details.

In another development, forces from El Salvador left Iraq on Thursday after finishing their mission in the country, VOI reported.

Some 200 personnel from El Salvador joined the US in the 2003 invasion of Iraq. Workers aided US troops in logistics work.

Most of foreign troops left Baghdad on December 31 with the expiration of the UN mandate. US and British troops are still in Iraq under new security agreements laying down the schedule for their withdrawal.

Blood-boiling history of Hindu India : Anti-Pakistan war-mongering has no takers

Blood-boiling history of Hindu India : Anti-Pakistan war-mongering has no takers

As this is written Brahminism and Islam, the centuries- old enemies (see DSA ref. p.5 bottom), are again on the collision course. However, a bloody nuclear war looming over the sub-continent has gone to background as India found itself friendless in the world.

In this war frenzy, the Pakistani Muslims were united but India’s Hinduists looked weak and divided. Even the recent Islamic terrorist attack on Bombay has gone to background.

This is because the overwhelming productive labour (85%) of “Hindu India” is not only not Hindu but victim of Hinduism. Dr. Ambedkar had said all this. The Indian Govt. also knows it. That is why it is not ready to be swayed by the micro-minority war-mongers. The Manmohan Singh Govt. is hesitating though the war-mongering Brahminists are craving for “hate, revenge, blood and bomb”.

U.S. bombs Pakistan, 18 reported dead

U.S. bombs Pakistan, 18 reported dead

Air strikes against suspected Al Qaeda hideouts are first since Obama sworn in

Jan 23, 2009 02:04 PM

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan – Suspected U.S. missiles killed 18 people on the Pakistan side of the Afghan border today in the first such attacks on the militant stronghold since President Barack Obama took office, Pakistani officials said.

At least five foreign militants were among those killed in the strikes by unmanned aircraft in two parts of the frontier region, an intelligence official said without naming them. There was no information on the identities of the others.

Pakistan’s leaders had expressed hope Obama might halt the strikes, but few observers expected he would end a tactic that U.S. officials claim has killed several top al-Qaida operatives and is denying the group a safe haven on the Pakistani side.

The United States has staged more than 30 missile strikes inside Pakistan since August – a barrage seen as a sign of frustration in Washington over Islamabad’s failed efforts to curb militants it blames for violence in Afghanistan.

Pakistan publicly protests the strikes in the northwest as violations of its sovereignty that often kill civilians and undermine its own campaign against insurgents also accused of launching bloody attacks on targets inside Pakistan.
