Sainsbury's new chocolate contract with Israeli settlement destroying Nazareth

08-10-2003 00:42

I stumbled across this announcement today in an Israeli Newspaper. Sainsbury's own-brand chocolate (and soon chocolate drink) will be made in a factory at Nazareth from December. Further research reveals that this factory is in a still-growing Jewish settlement on land stolen from the Palestinians at Nazareth, and which is now apparently surrounding and strangling the little town so sacred to Christians.

Looks like I have to boycott Sainsbury's now, as well as M&S.

Latest NEWS on the CIA leak - will it be a clone of the Hutton distraction ?

07-10-2003 20:10

Latest NEWS on the CIA leak enquiry suggests it may mirror the Hutton enquiry (still in the NEWS). The latter successfully distracted the media from the real issues of the Iraq war. Another great triumph of Blair spin - all the more so because it appears to be the opposite - a critical investigation.
It seems Bush is now setting up a mirror - an inquiry into something Iraq-related but trivial. It worked for Blair, after all.
This posting takes two current news items, and suggests a viewpoint from which they are intimately related.
