War on everything

serveimageCXDUYHWN
War on terror or War of terror

War on terror started soon after the World Trade Centre in New York was targeted with commercial airliners. This was possibly one of the world’s biggest false flag events and the American government and its so called allies went on to bomb Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and is now fighting a proxy war in Syria, with the very real possibility of a third world war with Russia and/or China looming over the horizon.

First the enemy was al-Qaeda, then the Taliban in Afghanistan, the very organization that the west had encouraged to fight the Russians. After a few years the west seemed to have lost interest in Afghanistan and in the meantime had started a full scale war with Iraq killing possibly a million people and totally devastating the country before moving on to Libya to cause the very same destruction. In Syria our enemy is supposed to be ISIS or is it Daesh. Our enemy is whatever they say it is. Iran is next on the list.

This so called war on terror is simply a means to control the resources of these countries and has nothing whatsoever to do with bringing democracy to these once sovereign states. It is also about removing the last countries that have not joined the club. The banking cartel is the main reason for such destruction. The banks control the World not governments.

War on cash

It has been planned for a while now that cash will disappear completely from our everyday lives and credit and debit cards will be the only way to pay. Also the mobile phone will be pushed as a way to pay which might even make the cards obsolete. At the moment we have many different ways to pay but in the future we may only have one choice. Every transaction we make in the future whether buying or selling will be recorded somewhere. This information will be used to keep meticulous records of our lives in order to charge tax and build a profile of the person we are or the person they think we are. Already some major banks are lowering their interest rates to zero or below and some countries are beginning to think about getting rid of cash altogether like Sweden.

War on the net

The internet has been the greatest instrument of freedom we have the pleasure to witness in recent times. But this is a real problem to the controlling elites. They are desperately trying to find ways to curb our use of this great Oracle. At the moment they do not have much control on the information we can access. When it was just the printed word as in newspapers and TV news it was easy to get the story straight, but now they have lost control of what we know. Right now Facebook and Twitter have had controls put on them to block certain content. We are losing the choice to make up our own minds of what we read.

War on CO2

Some time ago it was decided that the world was warming and this is caused by humans and not by any natural means. It cannot be anything to do with any normal cycles with the sun as the biggest driver of climate that have been going on for millions of years. No it must be us, we are the problem. CO2 is a poison not a vital ingredient of our atmosphere that plants need to grow. How arrogant that we could change the climate so much and even more arrogant that we could fix it. The climate will always change whatever we try to do, it has always changed in the past.
Anyway be controlling CO2 emissions they have a great tool to control us. As usual it is the ordinary people that have to suffer and not the elites at the top who ignore all their own advice, they are immune to anything they say.

War on freedom

There has been a war on our freedom for hundreds of years as the powers that be are moving ever towards their goal of controlling everything that we do or think. They are scared of us and the potential that we have. If we are to move on to the next dimension of our existence then it is up to us to grasp the chance now and not let some minority control our future world. This life is ours and not the property of someone else. Our future is up to us. (Forsooth)

What rational, sane, decent person would argue that peace is not a good idea?

Livni: Israel will surround Abbas until he surrenders to our terms

Tzipi_Livni_29

Israel will surround the Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas until he accepts the Israeli terms and recognises Israel as a Jewish state, Israel’s top negotiator, Justice Minister Tzipi Livni said yesterday.

Livni told Israel’s Channel 10 that Israel will not release Palestinian prisoners who committed violent acts against Israeli citizens. “Israel will not release Palestinian prisoners with blood on their hands,” Livni said.

Livni claimed that several Arab countries have told Israel they will not transfer funds to Abbas pointing out that she had visited friendly Arab countries 11 times in the past 50 days.

The real story of the UN Human Rights Council: Europe slams Israeli crimes

200px-United_Nations_Human_Rights_Council_logo

Last week, Israel found itself isolated and condemned in Geneva, as the United Nations Human Rights Council passed four damning resolutions, each by 46-1. The resolutions testify to grave violations of international law, including the Geneva Conventions, as well as systematic discrimination and wide-scale human rights abuses.

Settlements, whose illegality is confirmed in the resolutions, are described as entailing “the confiscation of land, the forced displacement of Palestinian civilians, including Bedouin families, the exploitation of natural resources and other actions against the Palestinian civilian population”.

The resolutions also cite “the continuing demolition of Palestinian homes and eviction of Palestinian families from [East Jerusalem]”, “the destruction of orchards and crops”, the “expulsion of Palestinians”, a “two-tier legal system”, and a “discriminatory allocation of water resources”.

Importantly, the UNHRC’s resolutions contextualise the litany of abuses as part of a “systematic violation” of Palestinians’ human rights”. Israeli policies “discriminate against” an occupied people, while settlers are afforded “preferential treatment over the Palestinian population in terms of access to roads, infrastructure, land, property, housing, natural resources and judicial mechanisms”.

Israel seeks al-Aqsa Mosque demolition: PA official

Al Aqsa Mosque, Jerusalem , Occupied Palestine beautiful

Palestinian Authority Minister of Religious Affairs Mahmoud al-Habbash says Israel plans to demolish the al-Aqsa Mosque in al-Quds (Jerusalem).

“Israel is following a systematic, gradual plan supported by the Israeli government and protected by the Israeli army and its aim- I’m telling you is not to divide al-Aqsa – its aim is to remove the al-Aqsa Mosque,” al-Habbash said in an interview.

In recent months, Israeli forces and extremist settlers have stepped up their attacks on Palestinians visiting the mosque. This has led to violent confrontations between the two sides.

Israel has also imposed severe restrictions to prevent Muslim worshippers from entering the mosque.

Israel cancels Palestinian prisoner release

Israel has cancelled the release of a fourth group of Palestinian prisoners over the Palestinian leadership’s pursuit of further UN recognition.

Israeli Justice Minister Tzipi Livni said Palestinian actions had violated the terms of the release, which was part of a US-backed peace process.

Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas has applied to 15 UN conventions, accusing Israel of backtracking on its promises.

Israelis storm Al-Aqsa Mosque and injure dozens of Palestinians .

Israeli-Forces-firing-tear-gas-al-aqsa

Dozens of Palestinian worshippers were wounded on Sunday morning when Israeli police fired stun grenades and rubber bullets towards them in Al-Aqsa Mosque. The media coordinator for Al-Aqsa Foundation for Religious Endowments and Islamic Heritage, Mahmoud Abu Atta, said that countless Israeli forces stormed the mosque from the Mughrabi Gate and assaulted the Muslims at prayer inside.

“The Israeli police fired volleys of stun grenades and rubber bullets,” said Abu Atta. “Among all the injuries, at least one young man was seriously wounded in the head during the assault.” He pointed out that the Israeli police prevented students from reaching their religious lessons inside the mosque. The students then staged an impromptu protest outside the Hettan and Al-Majlis Gates.

Israeli arrests of Palestinian children increase by 80%

Israeli arrests of Palestinian children have increased by 80 per cent over the past two months compared with the average monthly number detained by the occupation authorities over the past two years.

The Euro-Mid Observer for Human Rights said in a report released on Monday that Israeli forces arrested 740 Palestinian children in January and February. Of these, 465 were detained for at least one week.

The Geneva-based watchdog said the average number of Palestinian children detained in 2013 was 200 per month, according to statistics released by the Israeli Prisons Service. The figure for 2012 was 197 arrests of children per month.

BDS supporting rock star Roger Waters hits back against vicious smears

n00006077-s

Since becoming one of the most prominent faces in favor of the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement, rock star Roger Waters has come under vicious attack. Now, he’s fighting back.

In an Op-Ed piece published by Salon, Waters, who made his name with Pink Floyd, hits back against supporters of Israel calling him a bigot and anti-Semite. He writes that given his upbringing–raised by a single mom because his father died fighting the Nazis–he had “no choice” but to speak out for Palestinian rights, given that “the vulnerable Palestinian population still lives under occupation, while…more Palestinians are imprisoned, injured or killed struggling for the right to live in dignity and peace.”

Waters made waves in December when he told activist Frank Barat that Israel engaged in “ethnic cleansing and…systematic racist apartheid.” Citing journalist Max Blumenthal’s book Goliath, he also said that the “right-wing rabbinate” believes “that the Indigenous people of the region that they kicked off the land in 1948 and have continued to kick off the land ever since are sub-human. The parallels with what went on in the 30’s in Germany are so crushingly obvious.”

On the Jewishness of Israel

israeli-flag-2

This story began with the emergence of the Zionist movement and their determination to establish a Jewish state in the Promised Land, also known as Palestine, at the expense of its original inhabitants, the Palestinian people. This story took on a practical form with the first Jewish immigration to Palestine. Soon after, our story took a dangerous turn for the worse when the Balfour Declaration was issued in the second week of November 1917.

The Balfour Declaration gave the land known as Palestine to a people who were not deserving of it. The story came full circle when the Zionists and their supporters refused to acknowledge the existence of the Palestinian people in their claim that Palestine was “a land without a people for a people without a land”.

Even when Israel recognised the Palestinian people with the signing of the Oslo Accords in 1993, it merely referred to one political organisation as the representatives of the Palestinian people without acknowledging their rights. The Palestinians, however, recognised Israel’s right to exist and its right to peace and security.

The story took a tragic turn when the United Nations passed resolution 181; allocating 55 per cent of the original land to the Jewish state and a mere 44 per cent for the establishment of the Palestinian state. As for Jerusalem, it was declared an international zone separate from the two entities. Although Israel considers itself to be the Jewish state and the representative of all Jewish people around the world, it did not demand international recognition as a Jewish state as a condition to any agreement until the Annapolis Conference in 2007.

Bad news for Israel: headlines only tip of European boycott iceberg

Israeli-East-Jerusalem-Settlements2

New research suggests that as many as one in seven Dutch institutional investors have excluded companies involved in the Israeli occupation of Palestine in the course of the last five years.

“This is an indication that it is not uncommon,” explains a new report. “Many of these institutional investors did not seek publicity on this decision.” The report emphasizes that many respondents to the survey fear “naming and shaming from NGOs, participants or customers if they go public.”

This suggests that the wave of recent headlines about European divestment from Israeli and Israeli-occupation-linked companies could just be the tip of the iceberg.

As rockets rain down, Liberman calls for IDF to recapture Gaza

Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman on Wednesday evening said the IDF should reoccupy the Gaza Strip in response to an ongoing, massive rocket bombardment of southern Israel, and said that the Israeli government must defend its citizens even if it jeopardized peace talks with the Palestinians.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu did not endorse his foreign minister’s demand, however. Asked at a joint press conference with Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron if he backed the reconquest of the Strip, Netanyahu said that “if there is no quiet in our south, no quiet for the residents of Israel, there will be noise, lots of noise in Gaza.”

David Cameron says he would oppose boycott of Israel in speech to Knesset

David Cameron has made a passionate appeal to the Israeli parliament for its leaders to recognise the dividend of peace, as he poured praise on the country’s values and vowed that Britain would steadfastly oppose any boycott of Israel.

But Cameron’s differences with Israeli prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu were laid bare as the two leaders clashed over settlements on the West Bank, the wisdom of seeking a peace deal with Iran and the willingness of the Palestinian leadership to reach a compromise.

theguardian.com

The people will decide whether to boycott Israel not the government Mr Cameron. Iran is not a problem and the Palestinians may not want yet another compromise.

I Can’t Keep Up with the Hypocrisies Coming Out of Washington

american-hypocrisy_is_the_greatest_luxu-300x198

“President Barack Obama said the United States and its allies have agreed that Russia had violated international law by launching an incursion into Ukraine this weekend.”

Since when have either Obama or his allies or the U.S. been devoted to international law? Was that when Colin Powell presented fabricated evidence before the U.N. or when Bush and Blair twisted intelligence around the policy they desired? Was that when these allies rushed to devastate Libya after propagandizing about a mythical slaughter of Gaddafi? Was that when they supported insurrections against the government of Syria? Was that when the U.S. invaded Afghanistan and failed to make a case to its government that Osama bin Laden was responsible for 9/11?

Pollster: Kiev-Style Revolt ‘Coming to America’

maxresdefault

Pollster and former presidential advisor Pat Caddell warns that the rise of “soft oppression” and corruption in the United States will facilitate a violent Kiev-style uprising in the streets of America.

This isn’t the first time that Caddell has warned that the increasingly corrupt and onerous actions of the federal government are threatening to spark domestic disorder.

It would be naive to think that the innumerable riots, mass demonstrations and political uprisings across Europe and the middle east over the past three years have gone unnoticed by the federal government.

Israel boycott movement is antisemitic, says Binyamin Netanyahu

1281101015netanyahu_angry_pointing

Binyamin Netanyahu has launched a swingeing attack on supporters of a boycott of Israel, accusing them of practising “antisemitism in a new garb”, and urged the country’s friends to “expose and outflank” them by emphasising its high-tech achievements and global economic appeal.

Addressing a conference of US Jewish organisations in Jerusalem, the Israeli prime minister said the international boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement was intended to lead to “the end of the Jewish state”.

“Some supporters of the movement see it as a way to put pressure on Israel to end illegal settlements in the territories occupied in the 1967 war; others favour the creation of a single state that would dismantle Israel.

The Alternative is BDS!

bds

As BDS activists, we are no longer interested in the sterile opposition to normalization generated by the Oslo Accords, but rather in formulating the kind of response that could actually defeat multiple forms of Zionist oppression, i.e. occupation, ethnic cleansing, and apartheid. The moment the entire international community – civil society and governments – decides to act the same way it did against the apartheid system of white South Africa, Israel would succumb to the voice of reason represented by the 2005 BDS call issued by more than 170 civil society organizations and endorsed by almost all influential political forces from right to left of the political spectrum in historic Palestine and the Diaspora.

The urgent question now is how long the world will tolerate blatant constitutional racism, since it is showing a growing disapproval of Israel’s occupation of the West Bank and its settlement policies there?

Israeli Ethnic Cleansing

Israeli-Apartheid-2

It’s longstanding state policy. It’s what former Israeli politician Yigal Allon called maximum land with minimum Arabs.

It’s dispossessing them for Jewish exclusivity. It’s doing it extrajudicially. It’s doing it without compromise.

It’s claiming all land Israel wants belongs exclusively to Jews. Palestinian rights don’t matter. They’re persecuted for their faith, ethnicity and presence.

They’re ethnically cleansed to make way for Jews. It’s happening one bulldozed Palestinian home at a time. Destroying entire communities reflect it.

Impeach the State Department’s Hooligan Ban-Ki Moon, or Watch the UN Follow the Old League of Nations into Oblivion

20140205-WGT-PressTV-Article

The just-concluded first phase of the international conference on Syria in the Swiss cities of Montreux and Geneva has underlined a serious crisis in the collective security apparatus of the world.

Because of his outrageous partisanship and animus against countries like Syria and Iran, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has manifestly lost the confidence of political circles the world over, and can no longer continue in office. Ban’s incompetent and partial management of Geneva II is unquestionably one of the main causes for the meager results of this diplomatic effort so far.

The role of the secretary general should be to maintain an attitude of impartiality with a view to using good offices to mediate conflicts in accordance with guidance from the Security Council. As the United Nations states on its website: “One of the most vital roles played by the Secretary-General is the use of his ‘good offices’ — steps taken publicly and in private, drawing upon his independence, impartiality and integrity, to prevent international disputes from arising, escalating or spreading.”

EU President Martin Schulz wreaks havoc during speech at Knesset

Schulz4

German European Parliament President Martin Schulz caused an uproar during his address to the Knesset today because of remarks he made about conditions in occupied Palestine.

It appears some Israeli MKs are unaware of the gross discrepancies between water allocations in the areas under their purview. Haaretz reports EU President Schulz was accused of “blatant” and “lying propaganda“, “selective hearing” as well as incitement “against Jews” during a session in the Knesset today when he repeated a question from a Palestinian youth alluding water usage in Israel was several times that of occupied Palestine and questioned if it was true:

“A Palestinian youth asked me why an Israeli can use 70 cubic liters of water and a Palestinian just 17,” he said. “I haven’t checked the data. I’m asking you if this is correct.”

Here we go again

7936245684_62fa99ee87_z

Here we go again America meddling in other people’s business. Kerry should be visiting North Korea and talking directly with the Korean government and not skirting around the edges with South Korea and China. What we need is dialogue not dangerous threats. What does America expect from North Korea when they have exercises in the region pretending to bomb North Korea? What America really wants is regime change not war, there is no worry that North Korea has the capability to send loaded missiles to other countries. North Korea is just calling America’s bluff and will not have the resources to continue a war with any of its neighbours. World leaders are at it again, making the world a more dangerous place for the ordinary citizen. What we need to do is collect up all the leaders and pack them off to Mars or some such place where they can not bother us anymore. We should be living in peace by now not continual war. The only reason that war continues is that it is profitable and peace is not. The corporations run the world and governments are just pawns in the corporations’ game to control every aspect of our daily lives. The American corporations are just interested in keeping control of the world’s resources for themselves and are now afraid that China is gaining a great proportion of the resources. Is it not time that we all lived together in peace and share in what this planet has to offer? The only way to change the current way is for the people to take back control of the plant away from the corporations. As Ghandi said ‘be the change you want to see in the world’.
