Christian Zionism Lobby

Hicks, Guantanamo and the Howard Government

15-08-2006 12:19

David Hicks, good, bad or just plain stupid remains an Australian son. Democratic nations have a responsibility to protect their citizens in times of need; a number of democratic nations have already successfully repatriated their citizens from the illegal torture centre of Guantanamo Bay; however, after a period of four years the Howard government has been unable or unwilling to effect the repatriation of David Hicks. If a truly strong case against Hicks existed it surely would have been prosecuted to the full advantage of the terrorist scare campaign that Bush constantly wages on the American people. The fact that the USA is loath to give Hicks a fair and open trial, and in view of the obvious manipulative tactics utilised by corrupt U.S. ‘legal’ officers to delay proceedings, it would appear that the grounds upon which the U.S. military have based their ‘case’ are extremely flimsy and/or could attract litigation for illegal detention, torture and human rights abuses!

Activist aid convoy stopped by Lebanese National Security Guards - Sat 12th Aug

15-08-2006 12:08

Over the past few days Lebanese activists from a broad range of political and social groups have been meticulously planning an aid convoy to villages in the south. The idea was both political and humanitarian. Many villages have been without aid for some time and their situation is desperate. Meanwhile those peace loving Israelis have consistently announced that all moving vehicles in certain areas are legitimate targets. This was to be an open and passive defiance of that ban. The convoy of over 50 cars loaded with everything from food to diapers was publicly announced to both the Israelis and Hizbollah. Hizbollah had agreed to clear the way so there was no excuse for any bombing in the vicinity. No response from the Israelis who are presently refusing to allow NGOs like MSF (Medecins sans Frontieres) and the Red Cross a safe passage. In the end Lebanese National Security guards on Mount Lebanon stopped the convoy on the grounds that it would be too dangerous to proceed.

The politics of the latest terror scare

15-08-2006 04:58

There undeniably is a conspiracy
There undeniably is a conspiracy. It is a plot to use terrorist threats, real or imagined, to terrorize the American people, intimidate them, disorient them, and accustom them to accept the militarization of every aspect of their lives and the destruction of their democratic rights. The center of this conspiracy is the American government itself.

Counter-terrorism/liberty propaganda measures 'need strengthening'?

15-08-2006 00:42

Anyways, just by coincidence?
It makes you wonder whether they just have a list of propaganda material lined up that they don't tell the community about until the 'right time'. I mean don't tell me they couldn't have said it last week?

14-08-2006 23:44

remember - if the "small peaces" fall to pieces - try the "big" peace. . . .

14-08-2006 18:59

. . . . (if you've also checked in case a few jerks might have a criminal gravy-train or cover-ups or "news management" that needs wars + "clampdowns" for even the semblance of success - if so - you need to stop them, + perhaps the even "bigger" peace/change process - see "reopening tactful discussions" + later comments)
- this is about the "surface" practicals - thinking "big"-with realism, if out of "boxes"
