Israel's international aggression: US thumbs up to state terror and murder

03-06-2010 07:31

After days of conspicuous US absence from joining the rest of the world in unequivocally condemning Israel over its killing of civilians onboard the international convoy bringing humanitarian aid to the desperate people of Gaza, we now have the nauseating sight and sound of Washington defending the indefensible.

And, of course, the western media/propaganda machine can be counted upon to pump out plenty of misinformation fog to afford a cover of legitimacy to this charade by the White House and its criminal client regime in Tel Aviv.

Announcing Bilderberg 2010: Plutocracy with palm trees

03-06-2010 00:22

Sitges, nr Barcelona, Spain
There are usually 115 participants in each annual meeting. Eighty are from Western Europe and the remainder from North America. From this mixture, one-third are from government and politics, and the remaining two-thirds from industry, finance, education and communications. The meeting was named after the hotel that the first meeting was held at in 1954. Anyone who is who tries to enter the meeting uninvited is instructed to be removed at all costs, and if resisting the individual is to be shot and killed where he stands. The purpose of this secretive annual meeting is to provide a forum where the worlds most powerful individual's can discuss and direct world events without anyone knowing what they are determining. If these elite world rulers had nothing to hide this meeting would at least be spoken about publicly.

Israel's attack on Gaza aid convoy: A horrendous moment of truth for US policy

31-05-2010 20:34

Of course, there is hardly anything new here – Israeli forces using disproportionate violence, killing civilians with impunity. But on this occasion, the murderous incident is not in some poor ghetto in the Gaza Strip hidden from the full view of the world. Up to now, Israeli disinformation could afford just enough wriggle room to sow doubts over such events. The cynical phrases of “terror suspects” and “self defence” parroted by the western mainstream media served to give the Israeli government and its backers in Washington a degree of political cover for otherwise heinous conduct.

Condemnation Follows Israeli Raid On Flotilla

31-05-2010 16:52

"Hamas won an election for control of Gaza over the more conservative pro U.S. Fatah group favored by the U.S. and Israel. In the aftermath of a bloody struggle the more centrist faction was defeated militarily and by the ballot. Please remember this as most western press services have consigned important setails to Orwell’s “memory hole.”

"Officials in Israel said the elite naval units were attacked as they attempted to board one of the ships, and that the commandos used live fire only when they felt their lives were threatened. Dozens of passengers and at least five Israeli soldiers were wounded in the confrontation in international waters."

Alan Lake's EDL Final Solution

30-05-2010 15:52

To end any further doubt whether the EDL are being stage-managed by neanderthal football hooligans like Jeff Marsh, or hardcore neo-Nazis, you need to look at the comments online posted by the EDL's bankroller, the saviour of the hardcore fascist "Swedish Democrats", Alan Lake, as he forsees a future of Hitlerite Berlin-style Ghettos for Muslims in twenty years time, with summary executions for "race traitors", after the EDL has (in his view) successfully managed to destroy multiculturalism, and turn Asian and White people into sworn enemies.
