Barghouti on the Gaza Offensive and More

Some myths that the Israelis offer to justify their "self-defense" are challenged by Barghouti in this article posted on Huffington Post.

It is a nice synopsis of what many people have been saying for years.

Kadish and Pollard

Obama is Silent

You know, I was just thinking about the current onslaught that the Israelis are putting on the Palestinians in the Gaza, and I was thinking what would our President-Elect have to say about the matter. And then I started to realize that after having perused dozens of articles on the Israeli assault on the Gaza that I had not seen many blurbs at all on Obama and the current crisis. So I started to question why the President-Elect of the US had nothing to say. And that led me naturally to consider his political evolution:

When Obama was a state senator of Illinois, he once said that no people had suffered as the Palestinians have suffered.

But when he was running for President, Obama was reminded of this comment. So what did Obama do? Well he promptly gave a speech to AIPAC on the growing concerns of radical theocracy in Iran and completely kissed AIPAC's ass. And what did Obama do after he was elected President? His first appointment was White House Chief of Staff and who did he appoint to such a lofty position? None other than Rahm Emanuel, a Zionist son of a murderous Zionist terrorist who helped bomb the King David Hotel in 1946 and kill many innocent civilians, including more than a dozen innocent Jews whose only crime was to be a guest of the King David Hotel when Zionist terrorists were fighting to force the British from the region, without whose allegiance no such course of action would have been possible in the first place.

And then I began to grow angry, because I remember the silver-tongued Obama in all of his speeches, and how he made McCain look provincial and ignorant, but could not reconcile his notable silence on this pressing issue, which will certainly occupy a major role in his foreign policy considerations.

So do Americans have a JFK on their hands or do they have a reptilian politician who speaks his mind when it is politically expedient and accepts the chains imposed by special interest groups when they offer no room for dissent?

I really want to know, because in my current tour of France, many French people contend that Obama will solve all the ills of American society specifically and the ills of the world in general, but to them I say NO, just wait and see. He is shockingly mute when the issue demands a stance, principled or bought.

Israeli Treatment of the "Dignity"

Wow ! I could not believe my eyes when I read this article. But I do not doubt the veracity because of what Israel has done in the past .... USS Liberty but on a much smaller scale. Hopefully Cynthia McKinney will use her contacts to make sure this event is well-documented.I

Bravo Kucinich !

For the person who made the comment on my post 2 entries ago, I encourage you to read the following statement from Dennis Kucinich, Ohio congressman, failed Presidential contender, but very principled and moral person and one who maintains a strong consistency between his public statements and his true convictions. Eerie how his comments echo my own.

Bravo Iranian Jews !

This is a moment of solidarity for people of conscience. It is a question of justice very simply, and I am glad to see Iran's Jewish community send representatives to the UN office in Tehran to voice their solidarity with the Palestinian people and speak out against the Israeli war crimes being committed as we speak.

A 2nd day of Israeli Attacks

The death toll climbed to 271 from yesterdays attacks with more than 700 wounded, and the Israelis are again using disproportionate force to deal with home-made rockets. No one ever checks the Israelis, neither the UN nor the Arab neighbors nor the US (please) nor the EU nor the sensible Israeli citizens who understand that acts like this only pour gasoline on the fire for future generations of Palestinians who will outnumber the Israelis in 20 years or so. Maybe it is genocide that the Israelis want after all.

Gaza Massacre

200 dead, 750 wounded, and for what? For Qassam rockets which have killed < 10 people in 8 years. If ever there was an epitome of disproportionate use of force this attack by F-16's (paid for by US tax dollars my fellow Americans) is it.

All in the name of "self-defense". Please. This is immoral offense, and indiscriminate killing, and, by god, if you hold elections and call it a democratic process then deal with the results in a civilized manner, but not quarantining Gaza, withholding funds, petrol, electricity, medical supplies, humanitarian ships, ad UN mandated observers from entering Gaza and then wonder why home-made rockets are being fired (with no sophisticated guidance chips or any chance of doing massive damage).

Israel does not want peace. It wants to remain bellicose with its neighbors and continue to be indispensable to the US war machine and continue to receive our hard-earned and increasingly worthless dollars. Shame on the godless Israelis and their American stooges that support this type of over-response.

The Benefits of Common Causes

People who organize and protest obvious injustices should always be commended for their passion and diligence. And it seems the boycott of Lev Leviev is working as his business is nosediving.

Just Desserts

Thankfully, the presiding judge in the case smelled a rat and she was right. Another shakedown in the name of the Holocaust. This boob ought to be made to go work for the bank he was trying to defraud in exchange for his non-payment. At least the fraudster got disbarred.

Madoff's Non-Clientele

A nice article here on the institutions that did not invest with Madoff, pronounced "Made-off" which is very apt. What I want to know is if a purse-snatcher on the street stole a purse from a woman with a few hundred bucks and got caught, where would he be? On house arrest at home? Nope, in the slammer. How this man swindled so many to the tune of $50 billion total and gets house arrest in a $7 million apartment is beyond me. His ass ought to be under the damn apartment, or let his cheated clients decide his fate.

Israel Blocks UN Official From Entering Gaza

Richard Falk participated in the documentary "Occupation 101" and his treatment here by Israel is in response to his statements in "Occupation 101" and his other comments about the Israeli treatment of Palestinians.

House of Cards

The house of cards is falling down before our very eyes. Bank scandals/bankruptcies, Wall Street collapse, NASDAQ fraud, conflict of interests, taxpayers burdened with the government mandated bailout programs, and eventually our currency and economy in full.

Secret Wars of the CIA

Wow, I wish I had known about this video before. I had to read about this stuff piecemeal from various books, interviews, and underground media outlets before I could form a somewhat cohesive picture of what's going on and why, but this video does a good job of distilling some historical events most Americans have never heard of. To thine own self be true ...

IDF Evicts Hebron Squatters

Well I never thought I would see the day where I would agree with Mark Regev. Let's hope this is the beginning of the dismantling of settlements and not a token concession.

Bad Math Skills

Either these idiots are screwing up the numbers or there is a lot we are simply not being told. $8.5 trillion is the figure they are using in this piece, but that is about our national debt that has been accumulated over the past century basically. This figure is being used for the current bailout !!!!!!!!!!! WTF $700 billion is 7/10 of 1 trillion. Where are the other trillions coming from and going towards. I honestly hope this is a typo because Americans cannot come up with tax dollars to the equivalent of our national debt over the past century.

Settlement Issue

Well-written article on the issue of settlements. Laub could go further in her article in criticizing the human cost of the illegal settlements, but well worth a read.

Hebron Settlers Get Evicted?

These settlers in Hebron are absolutely abominable human beings. They throw feces on the Palestinians from atop their perch, above the Palestinian markets, in a building they have occupied as squatters. I applaud the Supreme Court in Israel for making a just decision, and these few hundred have sabotaged the 150,000 Palestinian lives' in Hebron enough. On the topic of Hebron, I have posted some videos of settler treatment of the Palestinians previously.

In the linked article, consider the behavior of the Israeli settlers in the context of the "God's chosen people" mantra. Makes you wonder what type of moralist God is if he endorses this type of deviant abhorrent amoral behavior.
