Working Links Christian Crusaders

09-11-2007 15:57

The next time you are invited to Working Links and are baffled by their inability to acknowledge structural causes for your unemployment it is worth considering the Christian ethos which underlines their approach. This results from the fact that 'the Links' are part-owned by the Australian charity Mission Australia. So, if you think unwillingness or inability to work is about more than low self-esteem, read on.

Massive Assault on Gaza Imminent

09-11-2007 15:48

The timing is interesting, given the upcoming "Annapolis Conference", which serves to be about PR alone, as Olmert has already ruled out any Negotiations or Compromise in the name of peace.

If you follow the events surrounding Israel's "Disengagement" from Gaza, you will quickly understand that this was the plan all along. While Israel was making a public spectacle of "forcing Jews to leave their homes", it was quietly surrounding the Strip with artillery emplacements, in an operation ominously named "First Rain".

Under this operation, Gaza basically became a "Free-Fire Zone", and several artillery and gunship strikes killed a high number of civilians. Finally, when one of these batteries fired upon and murdered a Palestinian family - picnicking on a beach that had been Segregated "Jews Only" only weeks before, Hamas finally decided to call an end to its unilateral, two-year cease-fire.

(In essence, they took Israel's bait. After all, you can't excuse your Aggression and label it "defense" if you're not being intermittently attacked. Never mind the hypocrisy underlying the entire media's framing of that whole debate ...)

When the Palestinians responded by electing Hamas to power (yes, elected), Israeli Extremists and their Ideological, bought foreign co-conspirators imposed unilateral sanctions on Gaza, a bit of Collective Punishment which increased the hardship of those stuck in the world's largest Concentration Camp.

When they felt Gaza had been substantially weakened, the US and Israel undertook a Coup attempt, using corrupt elements within the Fatah Party, provoking a violent response by Hamas, which expelled the group. Most of the world's media ignored the events leading to this "crisis", and instead only repeated the Propaganda emanating from the US and Israel, which used this to further increase sanctions against Gaza.

Most recently, Israel stepped up its Collective Punishment, except that human rights groups and legal advisors to the Government halted some of its approved measures, because they run contrary to International Humanitarian Law.

This was sold as another "response to rocket attacks" (again highlighting the hypocrisy of the debate's Framing - are the Palestinians allowed to defend themselves from strikes which actually KILL people ... ?), even though high-ranking officials said that this was NOT, in fact, a response to these attacks, but a way to "distance Israel from Gaza's infrastructure".

The real reason for this whole episode, of course, has been to "soften up" the Gaza Strip for a long-planned military attack, a way to undermine the resolve, and hopefully rid this territory of Palestinians altogether.

Of course, the corporate media says none of this, unless you're able to read between the lines. Then it's all right there in black 'n white ...

Mafioso Mayor continues with apartheid London Plan -

09-11-2007 11:22

The mafioso Mayor Ken Livingstone with sidekick the Mayor of London are planning to turn the capital into apartheid ghetto areas with office blocks and luxury flats in order to take over London occupied by London's most vulnerable communities in Hackney, Tower Hamlets and Newham. The Olympics, Crossrail and the East London Line Extension have been used to obtain land, which has rise in value, at a fraction of the cost in order to continue with the Dame Shirley Potter NAZI-eque cleansing programme where they will be offered no protection from the harm caused by these grand plans.
