Israel Must Be Obeyed !

This is getting close to comical.

First the build-up to the Annapolis was monumental. The conclusion, well, was a bit anti-climactic.

Both sides agree to have talks ....

Well Yippy Skippy.

Now Israel asks the US to withdraw the UN resolution, presumably because the Israelis do not want to have another UN violation on their hands when they obstruct yet another round of negotiations.

Like my previous post's title, song and dance but no real show.

CIA Meddling ; It's OK if we do it to other countries, so long as there is no reciprocity

I have long argued that our government's history of turning the CIA loose on the rest of world, overthrowing dozens of governments and decimating dozens of popular movements within other countries leads to anti-American attitudes, and when blowback occurs, our media outlets feign shock, ignorance, and "struggle" to understand.

The Bush administration has been very belligerent when it comes to Venezuela and Chavez, and his plan to barter his oil and bypass its dollar denomination in trades is central to udnerstanding this bellicosity.

So when memos like this one are leaked, Americans should try and understand that what our government does to other governments and other peoples does affect their attitudes towards us. That's pretty basic, and not controversial.

Declassified documents on Israel's nukes

It's too bad that we Americans have to wait 40 years before information becomes available to the public.

Yet another means of control.

Vatican Official Endorses Palestinian Right of Return

Hope in Iowa

This data is hard to ignore. The sociology department sponsored it, so there is no partisan bias there, and the sampling size was quite large.

Note that the major media refuse to cover Ron Paul, which probably indicates the political nature of our so-called news media. No journalism, just politics as usual.

This poll made my day.

Another Ron Paul Collage, this time set to Don McLean

Ron Paul Makes Bernanke Look Silly !

Nice video of Ron Paul grilling Bernanke of monetary policy.

Where is the Love?

Song and Dance, but no Show

Noam Chomsky's views on the Annapolis meeting today.

I am pessimistic about the outcome. A deadline has been reached that a deal will be done by the end of 2008, but Abbas is not the leader of the Palestinians, Haniyeh is despite the US's refusal to recognize the outcome of a free election.

I rather agree with Haniyeh on this issue that Abbas has no authority to make concessions.

We'll see how this develops, but it just seems to be another song and dance that lacks substance.

The Arab League proposals should be the basis for any negotiations, and Netanyahu can go to hell when he says that Olmert should not make any "one-sided concessions" to the Palestinians.

Make no mistake, the "one-sided concessions" that Netanyahu refers to are essentially Israel living up to its agreements, abiding by international law, Geneva conventions, and all the relevant UN resolutions.

Scott McClellan finally tells the truth

Scott McClellan comes clean in the White House's attempts to leak Plame's identity, then cover it up. I have newfound respect for McClellan for telling the truth, and it is clear that the resignations of Bush administration officials indicate people's refusal to be a part of deception.

WOW !

For those following the decline of the US dollar, check this must-read out.

A Reasonable Interjection

An Israeli Knesset member interjects some needed commentary to Livni's outrageous statements made yesterday.

He gets it, and I cannot understand why other Israelis do not.

The way of transfer

Livni caused an uproar by isinuating that a future Palestinians state in the fragmented bantustan-model of the West Bank and Gaza would provide a solution to the Arab Israelis living inside Israel ; dumbed-down version : when a Palestinian pseudo-state is eventually created, Palestinians should be encouraged to leave their ancestral homes inside Bethlehem and Nazareth and join other Palestinians who will be living in a garbage dump for Israel.

At least there was an uproar and Israelis have denounced her insensitive suggestions.

Note that these Palestinians have been living there since the time of Christ, and they should not have less rights to the land than immigrants from all over the world The Zionist paradox is that the Zionists want the world to accept their claim that since Jews controlled pieces of this land 2,000 years ago and that God willed the land to them, that they still have some right to it, but they won't recognize the undeniable rights of Palestinians whose former generations occupied the same land up until 1948 when it was unfairly taken from them.

But Livni, like Avigdor Lieberman who is truly a demon, suggests the way of transfer.

Very arrogant this idea is, and racist, and supremacist, and amoral.

Why can't Israelis like Jeff Halper or Ilan Pappe or Uri Avnery or Gideon Levy call the shots instead of these fanatical zealots in charge?

Petrov on the Iranian Oil Bourse

With the yahoo article several below, readers should be introduced to an article from Krassimir Petrov about the Iranian Oil Bourse.

This article gives the bacjground for understanding the background of not only the invasion of Iraq, but also why our government is so bellicose right now with respect to Iran.

Another piece on Dollar Hegemony

This was the article that made all the loose ends connect together.

Dollar Hegemony

I am posting this article that I had on the other blogsite I contributed to.

A good background on the real reasons Iraq was attacked and occupied, and it has nothing to do with the reasons we were told.

The Most Compelling Confirmation

If this article does not confirm all of my links to articles on dollar hegemony and the real reason that the Iraq war was started and why the US is now sabre-rattling against Iran, then I do not know what will.

The death of the dollar is imminent, and as catastrophic as that may be, maybe Americans will unite and see the need to repeal the Federal Reserve Act and return to sound economic practices.

No country that has ever used a fiat currency has survived for long under that type of currency system.

Zionism : The Real Enemy of the Jews

If President Jimmy Carter's book experienced a turbulent media reaction, one can only imagine the reaction to Alan Hart's thesis is his new book.

Not surprisingly, no US book publishers would give Hart the audience the book is really meant for, namely the propagandized American masses.

This article is a bit long, but does summarize what I have been saying on this blogsite.

Interview with Jeff Halper

Matthew Rothschild of the Progressive interviews Jeff Halper who is a professor of anthropology and co-founder of Israeli Committe Against House Demolitions.

This interview is not overly-long, but very incisive.

If only the government of Israel could be as reasonable as Jeff Halper, there would be an immediate solution to the conflict.

Turn a blind eye to Israeli espionage, but if its the Chinese, then there is a story ...

Chinese espionage is a threat to the US national security interest, but Israeli espionage is overlooked, and frequently, swept under the rug. The biggest gift that US policy has given the world is double standards.

Concessions .... Yeah Right

The Knesset moves to pre-empt concessions. Those words flew off the paper at me. "Israel won't budge" is a little more intellectually honest.

There is also a nice spin by Olmert. The Palestinians recognize Israel within the framework of all the relevant UN resolutions, namely the pre-June 1967 borders. But Olmert claims that the Palestinians do not recognize the right of Israel to exist.

That's bollocks. The Palestinians certainly do, but they do not recognize the settlements on Palestinian land, nor should they.

With 240,000 illegal settlers in the West Bank, and over 200,000 illegal settlers in East Jerusalem, why should the Palestinians accept less than full withdrawal? After all, there are countless UN resolutions which address Israel's illegal settlement activity and illegal occupation.

But the Knesset pre-empts concessions! What a joke! What a tragedy!

From Freedom to Fascism

Best 90 minutes for someone who wants to learn about the legal extortionists ; the Federal Reserve System.

Hypocrites

Rosen and Weissman will see their court date soon enough. If they are not put in prison for their treachery when Franklin was, it will expose yet another ugly double standard.

The article above shows how serious the government is when people use their position in the US to peruse classified information. This person was indicted. If there is any fairness at all, Rosen and Weissman will be too. If not, then our government is hypocritical yet again.

Justice!

I remember reading this story when it first came out. The dry cleaner offered the client a few hundred dollars to buy new pants. The judge said no. The dry-cleaner then offered $4,000 for a pair of pants. The judge still said no. He sued. It was dismissed, but so too was the judge.

That a person can be a part of the judicial system them pursue this ridiculous frivolous litigation staggers the mind.

I am glad he lost his job. He should not be in a position to render judgements against others if he thinks like this.

Justice!

Sibel Edmonds ; Her case speaks volumes on the decline of the US

The link has a video interview of Sibel Edmonds, a language expert who worked for the FBI for less than 6 months after September 11, 2001. She is the most gagged person in US history, and her story needs to be told.

The translations she made in Turkish, Farsi, and Azerbajani indicate that the FBI did have foreknowledge of the impending 9-11 attacks, and the government's organized agenda to prevent her testimony from becoming public record speaks volumes.

If the government had nothing to hide, every American would know anout her case. Because we do not know the details reveals the degree to which this government will stoop to prevent the truth from coming out.

Bravo Sibel!

They had democratic elections, and the victors got sanctions!

Rice makes an interesting comment in this piece. The Palestinians must embrace "democracy" ...

well they did have democratic elections, and Hamas won, and our Congress imposed crippling sanctions against the victors.

How can there be a true democracy when the US leads the charge for sanctions?
This is a monumental farce.

The rest of the article makes good sense, and the recommendations are long overdue.

Hidden Costs Add Up !

keep in mind that our GDP is about 4 trillion.

The Good Soldier

This is not the first time a "hate crime" has been staged to heap more victimhood on collective Jewry.

But aren't hidden video cameras nice. No way to lie one's way out of the mess.

Must Investigate Further

Well, I do not know if this piece has much to it other than hearsay, but it definitely comes from a credible source, Le Figaro.

I will do some checking up on this issue, but this piece, if it is proven true or possibly true, could explain Sarkozy's comments a few weeks ago that 'Israel was the greatest miracle of the 20th century' and could explain why he is so confrontational over Iran, which is a neocon, Zionist-driven agenda.

Nice Collage of Ron Paul Media

Good 8-minute investment of time.

Friday, November 02, 2007

Finally !

I have been blogging on the issue of Larry Franklin , the Pentagon analyst working under prominent neocon Douglas Feith who was sentenced to almost 13 years in prison in January 2006, and how the media chose not to report on this monumental issue because it reflects poorly on AIPAC, the US government, and the Israelis.

The hush on Larry Franklin, it has been argued by me and others, is a damning commentary on media bias with respect to Israel. If lobbyists from another country were caught by the FBI in a sting operation accepting classified information from a Pentagon analyst, I am pretty sure that the media would cover the issue ad nauseam. But not when its Israel.

Finally, the AIPAC officials involved are going to court, and Rice et al may have to testify.

If Franklin has already been found guilty, and Rosen and Weissman are not, then justice is completely dead.

Ethnic Cleansing in the Knesset

A very transparent law aims to minimize the number of Arab Israelis serving in the Knesset.

I wonder how the following hypothetical would go over :

What if the US Congress passed a law prohibiting Jewish members of Congress from visiting Israel?

I am not suggesting that Israel is an "enemy state" as the article puts it, but given that Israel has displaced millions of Palestinians for its racist, colonialist, Zionist agenda, it seems despicable that Arab Israelis cannot visit neighboring Arab states, where there are many Palestinian refugee camps.
