08-08-2008 19:25There have been major developments in the Middle East. Russia and Georgia have exchanged hostilities in South Ossetia. A massive US naval armada is enroute to the region and the stage is now set for a confrontation between all the major players in the region over petroleum resources, pipelines and geopolitical aims. Focus and organize now!

08-08-2008 18:47Troubling to say the least.
I truly cannot believe what I am witnessing ...

08-08-2008 17:08Once again Israel starts a war that others will have to clean up.
Only a year ago I was speculating that Israel's real agenda might be to trick the US and Russia into a mutually destructive war, leaving Israel and its nuclear weapons in control of the Middle East and its oil.
This is especially interesting contrasted against the recent revelations which support the antiwar movement's contention that the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan was about oil & gas pipeline routes from the Caspian Sea Basin.
Damn, I hate being right all the time.
08-08-2008 16:47Police have set up a search regime for every single person visiting the camp that is unknown at any border checkpoint in the world other than Israel / Palestine. It is analogous to that faced by visitors to prison. It assumes anyone going to the camp is a potential criminal, whereas the legal power used requires them to have actual suspicion that they are.
08-08-2008 16:37Police have thieved vast quantities of materials trying to either scupper the camp or prevent effective direct action taking place. This is clearly unlawful, but for various reasons we unfortunately failed to find a way to use the law to prevent it happening. It may be that such a challenge happens yet - if you have had property seized in suspicious circumstances like those outlined below, please contact us
First link really should be to the people who invited them to engage not those who provoked them.
08-08-2008 15:55This is usually what happens in these cases, since Israel, beyond PR, doesn't really care about this behaviour - after all, it preaches the hatred and revisionism responsible for it - and this is part of Israel's program, designed to make life so unbearable for the Palestinians, that they will abandon their fight for justice and resistance, and accept anything Israel offers.
08-08-2008 15:38Despite the severe increase in recorded Settler-Extremist violence towards Palestinian civilians in recent months, with attacks occuring almost daily, few media outlets report this violence.
What is the difference between these fanatics and the Nazis again ... ?
