The Case Against Israel's "Right To Exist" The Case Against Israel's "Right To Exist" So let us examine this curious notion that Israel has some sort of inherent "right to exist," a claim that no other nation-state has ever felt it necessary to make. We would all agree that human beings have a right to exist, although there are many who would make an exception for those who commit murder. Some even go further and say that all sentient beings have a right to exist, but only in this one peculiar case is there this insistence that a particular nation-state has such an inalienable right. Why is that? Is it, perhaps, because in this particular case the contention is on particularly shaky ground? Sorry, but methinks the lady protesteth too much. Afghan police say victims of U.S. raid not militants Afghan police disputed whether five men killed in a raid by U.S. and Afghan troops on Saturday were militants Rosen, along with his slick defense lawyer Abbe Lowell and pro-AIPAC Judge T.S. Ellis III, constitute a formidable force against Washingtons efforts to curb AIPACs power, and in favor of Israels determination to subvert U.S. policy

Africom’s Covert War in Sudan Roger Winter is intimate with USAID, and is a long-time ally of Susan Rice, former Assistant Secretary of State on African Affairs (1997-2001), Special Assistant to President Clinton (1995-1997), and National Security Council insider (1993-1997). Susan Rice is the Obama Administration’s Ambassador to the United Nations and staunch enemy of Omar al-Bashir. Roger Winter is also a staunch supporter of U.S. Rep. Donald Payne, one of the leading U.S. Democrats pressing for action to “stop genocide” in Darfur, Sudan. Payne sponsored the Darfur Genocide Accountability Act and was arrested in June 2001, along with John Eibner, director of Christian Solidarity International, for protesting against the GoS. Much of the AID infrastructure in Sudan has at one time or another been used as a weapon through the use of human shields, food deliveries to refugee populations inseparable from insurgents, and shipments of weapons by ‘humanitarian’ NGOs. This is both incidental and deliberate policy. Christian ‘relief’ NGOs played a huge role in supporting the covert western insurgency in South Sudan. One notable ‘humanitarian’ NGO involved in weapons deliveries was the Norwegian People’s Aid (known affectionately in the field as the Norwegian People’s Army). Interestingly, “The Man For A New Sudan” story, an establishment whitewash of the involvement of the U.S. military-intelligence establishment in Sudan, was written by Eliza Griswold, a ‘Fellow’ with the New America Foundation, a left-leaning think tank and pressure group with a very confused ideological but nationalist-militaristic position. (The NAF is obviously dependent on U.S. foundation funding, and it reveals no apparent policy formulations of substance on the Great Lakes or Horn of Africa, conflicts for which they remain completely silent).
DURBAN REVIEW CONFERENCE TO BE BOYCOTTED BY THE WORLD’S MOST RACIST NATIONS. United States Congress (Washington, DC) Uganda: Record Statement of U.S. Senator Russ Feingold on Lord's Resistance Army MR. FEINGOLD: Mr. President, I rise today to express my grave concern at the continuing massacres, kidnappings and terror orchestrated by the Lord’s Resistance Army, the LRA, in northeastern Congo and southern Sudan Just over two months ago, the Ugandan, Congolese and South Sudanese militaries launched a joint offensive against the LRA’s primary bases in northeastern Congo. Serious concerns have been raised about the planning and implementation of this operation. Since the military strike began, the LRA has been able to carry out a series of new massacres in Congo and Sudan, leaving over 900 people dead. That is a killing rate that, according to the Genocide Intervention Network, exceeds that in Darfur or even in Somalia. Hundreds of new children have been abducted and new communities have been devastated and displaced. It’s tragically clear that insufficient attention and resources were devoted to ensuring the protection of civilians during the operation. Meanwhile, the LRA’s leader Joseph Kony and his commanders escaped the initial aerial assault and have continued to evade the militaries. Thus far, this operation has resulted in the worst-case scenario: it has failed to stop the LRA, while spurring the rebels to intensify their attacks against civilians.(senator amdits that southern sudan is the problem) The Weekly Observer (Kampala) Sudan: Bashir Indictment is Colonial Conspiracy The main instrument for neo-control in the ICC is selective justice. It decides whom to indict and whom not to indict. Those who fail to succumb to Western neo-colonial control will be targeted for indictment. Those who play the role of "good boys" will be spared. They have the capacity to fan violence in any country and cause bloodshed. Once they get one group to take up arms and fight the government in power, the Western-based humanitarian organisations come in with relief for the war victims. Being at the grassroots in the war zone, the politically oriented humanitarian organisations will accuse which ever side they don't like of involvement in violence and crimes against humanity. At the end of the day, if you don't succumb to Western neo-colonial control, they will get a way of hooking you and stage-managing you as a war criminal. They will then get the ICC to issue a warrant of arrest. (Asmara) Eritrea: High-Level Delegation Delivers President's Message to Sudanese Leader The message that mainly focuses on the accusation by the so-called International Criminal Court against President Omar Hassan Al-Beshir of Sudan reasserted the firm and lasting support of the people and Government of Eritrea. It also contains an invitation for the Sudanese leader to pay an official visit to Eritrea.

Seymour Hersh: 'Executive Assassination Ring' Reported Directly to Cheney Office "Congress has no oversight of it. It’s an executive assassination ring essentially, and it’s been going on and on and on. Just today in the Times there was a story that its leaders, a three star admiral named [William H.] McRaven, ordered a stop to it because there were so many collateral deaths. "Under President Bush’s authority, they’ve been going into countries, not talking to the ambassador or the CIA station chief, and finding people on a list and executing them and leaving. That’s been going on, in the name of all of us Pentagon knowingly exposed troops to cancer-causing chemicals, document shows A newly leaked military document appears to show the Pentagon knowingly exposed US troops to toxic chemicals that cause cancer, while publicly downplaying the risks exposure might cause. The document, written by an environmental engineering flight commander in December of 2006 and posted on Wikileaks (PDF) on Tuesday, details the risks posed to US troops in Iraq by burning garbage at a US airbase. It enumerates myriad risks posed by the practice and identifies various carcinogens released by incinerating waste in open-air pits. Because of the difficulties in testing samples, investigators could not prove that chemicals exceeded military exposure guidelines. But a military document released last December found that chemicals routinely exceeded safe levels by twice to six times.The leaked report was signed off by the chief for the Air Force's aeromedical services. Its subject is Balad Airbase, a large US military base about 70 kilometers north of Baghdad."In my professional opinion, the known carcinogens and respiratory sensitizers released into the atmosphere by the burn pit present both an acute and a chronic health hazard to our troops and the local population," Aeromedical chief Lt.

Pathologising dissent? Now that’s Orwellian Crisis? What Crisis? All is Proceeding According to Globalist PlanMarch 9th, 2009 - by Terry Melanson Parts 1 and 2. The Doomsday Bias The Power Elite and the Nazi Plan, Part 2 Dennis L. Cuddy, Ph.D.March 9, 2009 People across the U.S. question whether there really is a Power Elite (PE) facilitating global events. My response is, “If a former Chief of Special Operations (clandestine activities) for the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff (USJCS) says there’s a secret team that controls the U.S. and the World, why is it so hard to believe in a PE acting similarly?” Former Special Ops Chief for the USJCS, L. Fletcher Prouty authored The Secret Team: The CIA and Its Allies in Control of the United States and the World (1973), in which he revealed there’s a “Secret Team consisting of security-cleared individuals in and out of government who receive secret intelligence data gathered by the CIA and the National Security Agency…. The Secret Team has very close affiliations with elements of power in more than threescore foreign countries and is able when it chooses to topple governments, to create governments, and to influence governments almost anywhere in the free world.”
