Israel's Suffering?

21-07-2006 12:24

As the latest round of Israeli mass punishment escalates, as the Lebanese people are once again subjected to a taste of the brutality meted out to the Palestinians, and as George Bush and Tony Blair give their tacit approval, the question posed by Robert Fisk in a recent article surely warrants further consideration. 'What does this act of destruction tell us about Israel? Or about ourselves?'

Lebanon: Throw out war propagandists like the BBC, FOX, CNN etc.

21-07-2006 09:41

We all know the BBC is strictly impartial! How do we know that? Because that's what they keep saying on the telly! But in reality most are not 'journalists' but warmongering propagandists. The BBC the last 2 decades has given just 2% to broadcasting anti-war dissent! They have shown to be worse than FOX, CNN etc

if the reporting on this situation does not improve, it's time to blockade the media at their offices. The same goes for this pathetic excuse for a "Government". Why is Bliar the War Criminal still in power?

Lebonese demo Tuesday night. The blockading of Parliament.

19-07-2006 16:37

The volume increases.
The road outside Parliament was blocked for around 20 minutes by around 500 mostly Lebanese demonstrators. The action forced the main gates to be locked by Police so MPs wishing to drive home at the end of the session found themselves locked in.

The Police were hopelessly outnumbered so could do little except stand and watch. They called in reinforcements from just about everywhere including City of London, British Transport Police and local Westminster duty plods. Having no option but to adopt a softly, softly approach they kept well back letting the stewards gently move the protesters back into the square. They then formed a line of vans and officers across the front of the demo and remained until the protest finished. There was no violence, the protest remained loud and angry until the end.

Expect greater numbers on Saturday.

Since the demo was booked events in Lebanon have spiraled with hundreds of civilians killed in airstrikes and Israel increasing its military operation with every passing day. So the half a dozen or so cops deployed found themselves policing a protest of around 2000 angry people. Direct action was inevitable....
