A moral failure of UK media on Gaza

The genocidal Israeli military campaign against the unarmed, imprisoned and besieged people of Gaza which has resulted in the deaths of more than 1,000 Palestinian and just 13 Israelis, is not being accurately reported in the British press.

With a few admirable exceptions, writers and broadcaster in the UK have adopted a biased stance and vocabulary in their coverage of the conflict. The highly influential Zionist lobby and the Labour Friends of Israel within the UK government have been hard at work.

One must not underestimate the career damage journalists, politicians and academics fear in the event of being branded ‘anti-semitic’. Most do not have the moral courage to unreservedly criticise Israel.

The Murderous Zionist Butchers Of Israel

I have no words to describe the Zionist butchers and their crimes in Gaza. The United States along with its Western allies are as guilty murderers as are the beasts in Israel. George W Bush, Dick Cheney, and Condi Rice are the murderers that have to be tried in a court of law for the continuous crimes they have committed.
Having said that; I like to point out that the murderous government of the United States is complicit in these crimes because certain segment of the American population that practice a dirtiest form of cult, falsely named Christians-Evangelicals.

SEATTLE -- A man who was given a ticket while walking his dog in a Seattle park is challenging the city's poop scoop law.

The man, Steve Guiling of Mount Vernon, was given the $54 citation in November for failing to carry scoop equipment as he walked his dog Amy in Discovery Park.

He told The Seattle Times there's no definition of such equipment, and he could easily find a plastic bag or use his hands.

A formal complaint has been filed with the U.S. Senate Ethics Committee over the refusal by the Foreign Relations Committee to investigate a wide range of scandals, including "Chinagate" and "Filegate," in Sen. Hillary Clinton's past while she was questioned for her appointment to secretary of state.

Larry Klayman, known for pursuing Clinton scandals in the 1990s as founder of the government watchdog Judicial Watch, filed the complaint after the Foreign Relations Committee ignored his request.

Attempted elimination of bank execs failed?

BofA, Wells Employees Were Aboard Crashed Plane
January 15, 2009, 7:04 pm

What was perhaps the most riveting story in New York on Thursday afternoon had almost nothing to do with finance: a US Airways plane that plunged into the Hudson River on the West Side of Manhattan.

But there was still a banking angle to the story. Among the roughly 150 people on the plane, which was bound for Charlotte, N.C., were employees from both Bank of America and Wells Fargo. Authorities said everyone was safely escorted off the plane.

Bank of America, the troubled Charlotte-based bank, said 23 employees were aboard the plane. Wells Fargo, which acquired Charlotte-based Wachovia, had three employees on board.

A Wells Fargo spokeswoman told Dow Jones Newswires that “all three are safe.”

That's the upshot of an admission by senior Pentagon official Susan Crawford who has gone on the record today, admitting that the U.S. military engaged in the torture of at least one captive at Guantanamo Bay (and common sense tells you it wasn't limited to just one).

Canada complicit in Israeli war crimes

By Jim Miles

Canada lives in the unfortunate position of being under the thrall of U.S. media for most of its information and cultural relevance. At the same time, its own media, apart from the national broadcast company, CBC, is highly centralized under the influence of two media empires (Canwest Global and CTV GlobeMedia) who support the same kind of biased coverage that is provided by the U.S.

In sum, Canadians who wish to receive a balanced view of events in the Middle East, Gaza in particular, have to rely on alternate or external media. Canwest Global (Israel Aspers’ media empire) provides nightly updates with little context and “balanced” reporting of showing deaths in Israel from the Qassam rockets as being equally as devastating as the IDF attacks in Gaza.

Israel using “DIME” weapons on civilian population in Gaza

Dr Gilbert, a Norwegian Dr has just confirmed on PRESS TV that the Israelis are using a new type of weapon that shred’s the body in pieces. If the person lives they will develop Cancer and Leukemia. The Dr has said that these weapons are against international law and that most people coming into the hospital have been injured by this weapon, women and children have been affected by this weapon They are called Dense Inert Metal Explosive (DIME). Apparently it’s, designed for low “collateral damage” yet, it is highly carcinogenic and harmful to the environment. Doctors in Gaza noticed cases of amputated limbs with evidence of intense heat at the point of amputation but no shrapnel.

The question that may never go away: Who really is Barack Obama?

The question that may never go away: Who really is Barack Obama?

In his autobiography, "Dreams From My Fathers", Barack Obama writes of taking a job at some point after graduating from Columbia University in 1983. He describes his employer as "a consulting house to multinational corporations" in New York City, and his functions as a "research assistant" and "financial writer".

The odd part of Obama's story is that he doesn't mention the name of his employer. However, a New York Times story of 2007 identifies the company as Business International Corporation.10 Equally odd is that the Times did not remind its readers that the newspaper itself had disclosed in 1977 that Business International had provided cover for four CIA employees in various countries between 1955 and 1960.11

Israel versus America
Is the 'special relationship' over?
by Justin Raimondo

The role played by Israel as the catalyst for war in the Middle East was dramatically underscored the other day, when David Sanger of the New York Times reported Israel had requested access to "bunker-buster" bombs developed by the US, and also clearance for flying over Iraqi airspace to get at Iran. Both requests were denied.

Ukraine Rejects Once Again Russian Gas Transit

The Ukraine has once again refused to fulfill the request of the Russian energy monopoly "Gazprom" for the transit of 99,2 M cubic meter of gas, the Russian information agency "Novosti" reported Friday.

Novosti are quoting the spokesperson of the Ukrainian "Naftogaz" Valentin Zemlyansky.

Zemlyansky confirmed that the transit of Russian gas through the Ukrainian territory remains impossible.

"Our answer is the same as the one from yesterday: a technology agreement first, gas transit second," the spokesperson declared.

In the mean time there is growing frustration with both countries among European officials.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who is due to meet Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin in Germany on Friday, warned that Russia could damage its reputation as a reliable energy supplier if the dispute continued.

David Mildenberg and Linda Shen | Jan 16, 2009

The fourth-quarter loss of $1.79 billion, or 48 cents a share, compared with net income of $268 million, or 5 cents, a year earlier, the Charlotte, North Carolina-based company said in a statement today. Results didn't include a $15.3 billion loss at Merrill, acquired this month.

The losses, coupled with the U.S. lifeline of $138 billion, put more pressure on Chief Executive Officer Kenneth D. Lewis [...]
