Netanyahu: We will not allow Holocaust deniers to carry out another Holocaust

22-04-2009 18:12

Netanyahu speaking at the Holocaust Remembrance Day ceremony, 20 April 2009
Given the extremely bellicose rhetoric of the new Israeli government as well as the thinly veiled threats from the Obama administration, Iran is still at risk of annihilation by the US, Israeli and NATO forces. The Holocaust-mongering of the Israeli establishment can be seen in this light.

Hundreds dead as Sri Lankan army launches final assault

22-04-2009 14:49

The Sri Lankan military has launched an offensive to capture the remaining small patch of land held by the separatist Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) in the country’s north. Aid agencies have warned of a humanitarian disaster as the fighting engulfs an estimated 100,000 civilians still trapped in the government-proclaimed “no-fire” zone.
The government has rejected appeals by the UN, major powers and international organisations for a halt to the fighting, and cynically described the offensive as the world’s “biggest rescue operation” to free civilians. In fact, what is taking place is a war crime that has already cost the lives of hundreds of civilians over the past two days alone.

Translators or Spies?

21-04-2009 12:38

MI5 recruitment ad
For a while now, the British Security Service, commonly known as MI5, has been trying to recruit 'translators', particularly Arabic speakers, through translation agencies. I found the advert below in my mailbox this morning, coming from Top Language Jobs, with whom I am registered as a freelance translator. The ad explains that the job will involve not only "listening to and translating a variety of spoken communications", but also "adding your own insight on the political and cultural context".

Fast unto last breathe - Day 13

19-04-2009 20:46

28-year-old Parameswarn Subramaniyan from Mitcham is not in good health as day 13 of his hunger strike comes to a close. He started off without any water and this seems to have done its damage although he does consume water now.
Lots of other youth are joining him tomorrow in mass hunger strikes.

The demands are as follows

The demands put forward by Parameswaran follow:

* Immediate and permanent ceasefire

* Food and medical aid should be allowed to reach the civilians immediately with international monitoring committees and allow “Mercy Mission to Vanni”

* UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and UK Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, arrange to meet our representatives.

* Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam are our sole representatives and UK government should lift the ban on LTTE.

* UN should call for an immediate referendum to the Tamils regarding whether they want separate nation or to remain as Sri Lanka.

Phony Nuclear Disarmament

18-04-2009 09:24

President Obama sent a near-declaration of war to Iran, all wrapped up in greetings for the Iranian New Year. The message may have looked like “a smiley faced video” in which the “president appeared to be very amiable and wished peace, love and harmony,” but was actually “nothing more than a well executed propaganda ploy intended to give him cover on the day he announces his true intentions.”

Parachinar: The Silent Massacre

15-04-2009 11:34

Surprisingly, at a time when the “civilized” world is on a so-called offensive against “terror”, coverage of the sorrow-filled plight of Parachinaris within western media has been periodical at best. The reasons for this are unclear. May be it is because Parachinar, fatefully, does not sit over barrels of oil; or perhaps our probing of the historical context behind these massacres will lead us to discover that Parachinar is yet another piece of anecdotal evidence of the much disregarded “blowback” stemming from the Soviet era.
