Leaks Reveal Drones Killing More Than Thought, Particularly Innocents

NOVANEWS

The CIA is lying to the American people and the world about drone attacks in Pakistan.

By Daniel G.J 

A leaked document identified as a report from the Pakistani government indicates that the robotic warplanes have killed more people than the U.S. government has claimed.

The report claims that 746 people, including 94 children, have been killed in drone strikes. The report examined 75 separate drone strikes between 2006 and 2009 that occurred in the Federally Administered ‘Tribal Areas’ of Pakistan, a region along the Pakistani border used by the Taliban as a base area. And as Anthony Gucciardi recently reported, more drone deaths continue to come out with minor recognition from the media.

Real Casualty Numbers Unknown

These claims are probably too low because they don’t list all the drone strikes that have been carried out since 2009. Nor do they list drone strikes that might have occurred outside the Tribal Areas. Last year Pakistan’s Interior Minister Rehman Malik told the press that between 2,500 and 3,000 people have been killed by drone strikes. Malik also said that there had been 336 drones in Pakistan.

Both Malik’s claims and the report contradict the CIA’s official story—in 2011 the agency claimed that 50 noncombatants had been killed in all of its drone strikes since Sept. 11, 2001. That claim seems very dubious, particularly since it is not clear that the CIA has been able to examine all of the drone attack sites.

The report itself is questionable because its source is not identified. The organization that uncovered and publicized it, the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, did not identify which Pakistani government agency produced it. Although, the report indicates the Pakistani government has extensive details of the attacks. Instead, it simply says the document came from three sources—what three sources?

During the period detailed in the report, the Pakistani government was supporting the strikes because they got rid of its enemies. The drone attacks are unpopular in Pakistan, but the Pakistani army has tolerated them because they kill some of its enemies.

The Pakistani document indicated that a large number of Taliban militants and their commanders died in the attacks. That indicates the CIA has extensive knowledge of the militants and their operations, probably from agents inside the organization. It also means that the CIA itself is well aware of the true casualty figures.

Are Other Nations Carrying Out Drone Attacks in Pakistan?

There is also an intriguing mystery in the report that the Bureau uncovered. Its reporter, Chris Woods, noted that there were five attacks carried out by forces that the Pakistani government could not or would not identify. That is bothersome because it indicates that other governments, perhaps India’s or China’s, might also be carrying out drone attacks in Pakistan. Both India and China have been attacked by militants backed by the Pakistani Taliban in the past.

By carrying out such attacks, the United States sets a precedent for other nations and implies that such killings are a legitimate method of war. A government that claims that it has the right to carry out these drone attacks gives other governments that right as well.

The whole concept of drone warfare needs to be reviewed due to the true mass number of deaths and other devastating consequences that stem from it. We need to ask ourselves if we want to live in a world where drone attacks are an accepted everyday occurrence.  And what about predator drone attacks inside the US? After all, they seem to violate not only the Constitution but the Ten Commandments and basic Christian morality. Especially when it comes to shedding innocent blood.

‘Something Like Steam’ Still Billowing from Fukushima

NOVANEWS

Second report of unwelcome emissions in less than one week

Fukushima City

By Jacob Chamberlain

“Something like steam” continued to billow out of Fukushima’s nuclear reactor 3 building on Tuesday morning, the Tokyo Electric Power Co. said, confirming the latest omen that the ongoing nuclear catastrophe will not end any time soon.

The presence of the emissions in the reactor building is the second instance in less than a week.

In a worse case scenario, the steam-like substance could be the result of renewed nuclear reactions—a possibility TEPCO, the site’s operator, denied but one that could mean large amounts of radioactive substances are being released.

TEPCO said workers are continuing to inject cooling water into the reactor and a pool storing nuclear fuel.

Japan Times reports:

Tokyo Electric Power Co. confirmed Tuesday that “something like steam” again issued from the building housing reactor 3, one of three units to suffer core meltdowns in March 2011, at its crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant.

TEPCO said one of its monitoring cameras showed what appeared to be steam escaping from the building’s fifth floor just above the reactor container at around 9:05 a.m. Tuesday.

The steam continued to be seen until 10:30 a.m., TEPCO officials said.

On July 18, what appeared to be steam also was seen at the fifth-floor level of the reactor 3 building. But no steam was seen the following day.

On Monday TEPCO publicly admitted for the first time since the disaster that contaminated groundwater has been leaking from the nuclear power plant and that the number of workers exposed to dangerous radiation is ten times greater than previously claimed.

WAKE UP AMERICA: Woman Having Diabetic Attack Assaulted by Police (Video)

NOVANEWS

Santa Fe County police can be seen on camera attacking a diabetic woman, ripping her out of her car and throwing her on the ground while she was having a diabetic episode.

According to KOAT News: Revena Garcia’s blood sugar dropped so low that she became extremely disoriented and could not open her car door. Deputies assumed she was a drunk driver and broke through her window, ripped her limp body from the vehicle, handcuffed her facedown on the hot pavement, where they left her, motionless.

“I was just lost, I was just lost,” Garcia said. She said her blood sugar was so low that she could have gone into a coma.

Even if Garcia was drunk or on some kind of drugs she did not deserve this kind of treatment and was not being violent with anyone or showing any signs of being a threat.

Garcia showed no resistance and there was obviously no reason to attack her and leave her on the hot pavement where her blood sugar reached a critical level.  These kinds of situations occur everyday, and unfortunately it is rare for someone to even get their side of the story and have anyone believe it.

“In this case there was no resistance. We are looking at that very seriously,” Santa Fe County Sheriff Robert Garcia said.

“What concerns me is there is no need to lay someone on the ground for that amount of time. There were other deputies around that could have assisted in at least sitting her up or having her placed in a cruiser,” said the sheriff.

However, it is likely that the people responsible for this attack will not see any punishment for their actions, aside from the possibility of a paid vacation.

REV. JEREMIAH WRIGHT: “GOD DAMN AMERICA FOR ‘HER’ CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY”

NOVANEWS

by jimcraven10

Rev. Jeremiah Wright: “God Damn America for Her Crimes Against Humanity”
Post Categories: Debate
Rev. Jeremiah Wright

Non-white majority Mankind, mostly descendants of the planet‘s earliest humans educated in the arts and sciences, long plundered by savage descendants of ferocious Vikings and other primitive Germanic tribes, will soon force America, and the white Colonial Powers it leads, to pay compensation for wrongful death, injury, stolen property and natural resources as condemned by Jeremiah Wright in sermon

wright 1 PN2008102901000655.-.-.CI0003

Whereas: Former Chad dictator Hissène Habré is about to be tried for crimes against humanity and atrocities, (Habré’s army was funded, armed and trained by Americans during Ronald Reagan’s presidency. Habré, who seized power in a CIA-backed coup in 1982 and ruled with an iron fist until his own overthrow in 1990, was used to prevent African Union Chairman Gadaffi’s planned union of Libya and Chad). [1]

-Whereas: Former Guatemalan Dictator Gen. Ríos Montt was convicted a month ago for genocide, (At the height of the Gen. Montt’s massacres, eighteen months of massacres, President Reagan visited him in Guatemala City and hailed him as “a man of great personal integrity and commitment.”) [2]

-Whereas: Jean-Claude Duvalier, the former hated and feared Haitian dictator known as Baby Doc has been arrested pursuant to trial for the deaths, torture and the disappearance of hundreds of people, (President Reagan’s U.S. ambassador to Haiti stated, during Duvalier time in office, “It can honestly be said that the Jean-Claude Duvalier presidency is the longest period of violence-free stability in the nation’s history.”) [3]

-Whereas: On Dec. 2 1987, under President Reagan, the U.S. delegation to the UN General Assembly voted against a resolution condemning Chile’s violations of human rights under US supported dictator Gen. Augusto Pinochet, (Pinochet was eventually indicted by judge Juan Guzmán Tapia, and charged with overseeing the death of thousands in Chile and abroad. By May 2012, sixty-seven of Pinochet’s agents had been convicted.)

-Whereas: During the first years of the Reagan’s administration, CIA was organizing, funding and overseeing the sickening terrorist attacks on rural areas of Nicaragua, planning sabotage of industries and mining Nicaragua’s ports, which brought a US conviction by the International Court of Justice when Nicaragua sued in 1984,

-Whereas: In El Salvador, despite overwhelming evidence that by 1984, 65,000 civilians had been murdered by the National Guard and right-wing paramilitary forces, President Reagan’s national Bipartisan Commission on Central America justified massive military support, (So far, El Salvador’s amnesty laws have protected the military supported by the US.)

-Be it noted that though our mostly non-white six billion strong Majority Mankind, has not yet coalesced into a force to match the US and other Colonial Powers, its Latin America component is on its way to the day when it will prosecute America for the crimes against humanity planned and arranged by America’s genocidal speculative investment banking elite and criminal media for two and half centuries.

Latinos had been damning ‘gringos’ for two hundred years before millions of them saw and heard Rev. Jeremiah Wright God-damning America on TV.

Every nation in Latin America, if not invaded by troops and bombed, has had its government overthrown covertly by America, leading to massacres and years of violence and keeping the continent in poverty, its labor and resources used to make money for American banks.

In 2008, Rev. Wright detailed these US genocidal crimes around the world in a sermon on Chicago’s South Side. [5]

For weeks on network news, only the “God damn America” phrase was excepted as a soundbite and followed by derisive commentary, newsworthy because Wright had long been the pastor of presidential candidate Barack Obama.

America, following in the wake of cousin European empires, has been destroying the nations of the cradle of civilization in the oil rich Middle East – Palestine, Lebanon, Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Yemen, Pakistan, Libya, now Syria and trying to overthrow Iran’s government a second time while keeping Egypt under control of US banks.

What a spectacle! High tech armed ignorant under-educated boys off farms and from city ghettos across the US, trampling across the oldest sites of learning on the planet, calling in warplanes and unmanned drone strikes, without a clue of human understanding as to where they are, and that they kill to maintain the predatory investments of their wealthy at home.

Wright spoke to this ghastly phenomenon during his God-damning of America.

Good people everywhere should God damn America for demanding that the popular president of Syria “must go!”

Even America’s NATO reports seventy plus per cent of Syrians support their government and its soft-spoken dentist president. Syria has been at the mercy of an army of weaponized thugs, including al Qaeda imports, led by the CIA and its branches in Israel, Turkey, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, England, and the EU, especially France, whose Colonial Army and then Vichy French Army, occupied and ravaged Syria for twenty-five years.

One hundred thousand Syrians have been sacrificed on the altar of Western business interests in less than two years. God Damn it! And Americans maintain an indifferent silence – a silence King condemned as treason. Only lack of jobs, low wages, housing, health insurance and education cost issues awaken cries of injustice from Americans anesthetized from any concern for America’s poor victims overseas.

Rev. Wright God-damned that what CIA has CNN report becomes truth.

For forty years, Third World hero Muammar Gadaffi, like Cuba’s Fidel Castro, was defamed as a brutal dictator.

America would never see videos of a million Libyans desperately demonstrating for the world to see, as British, French warplanes, backed by the US, bombed Tripoli into submission to murderous occupation by CIA managed and hired heavily armed goons in pickup trucks.

Americans would not learn of this criminal media blacked-out demonstration, nor would they need to see a single video or photo of Libyan troops firing on peaceful demonstrators.

The loud lies of CNN anchors were sufficient to justify the atrocious destruction of Africa’s most democratically prosperous country.

BBC and Reuters quickly fell in line and ended their early reporting of immediate atrocities by the rebels and draconian treatments of citizens in Benghazi.

The popular liberator and builder of his country up to 53rd UN quality-of-life in the world, Chairman and financial backer of an African Union meant to end continuing European exploitation, denouncer of UN Security Council as a council of terror, founder of Green Arab Socialism, would have a knife up his backside, to the pleasure of most white people everywhere [5] who regretted President Reagan’s failed assassination bombing.?

America crucified the population of a well off Iraq, which enjoyed the same good free health care and education up through PhD, that Socialist Libya had, and Syria still wants to keep.

A million and half Iraqi men, women and children died during the years of invasions and bombardments by Americans forced to buy their health care and education. Jeremiah Wright raged over this US genocide. See video [4]

Yet, God damn America even more, for the greatest deception of all time, that of blaming World War Two and the Holocaust on the maniac, Adolph Hitler, who Henry Ford, DuPont, Rockefeller had funded and led every major US corporation, some fifty of them, in investing and collaborating in building a prostate low-wage Nazi Germany up to world number one military power in full knowledge of Hitler’s daily announced plans to destroy communists, the Soviet Union and Jews.

The cataclysmic world war which would bring America fortunes in profits beyond imagination during and afterward, and make her the world’s single superpower, would not have been possible without this vast investment and cooperation of America’s powerful investors. [6] [ 7] [ 8]

Hear the summation of the Nazi defense attorney in the film Judgement at Nuremberg: “Where is the responsibility [voice rising] of those American industrialists, who helped Hitler create his government?

Are we not to find the American industrialists guilty?”[9]

Presidents Kennedy and Bush were sons of infamous Nazi collaborators.[10]

The same great damnable pre-war investor families, more in control of world events than even before their massively lucrative war, a war originally intended to destroy the Soviet Union and reduce the popularity of socialism everywhere, mercilessly continued to refuse Jewish survivors refuge in the US, and used them instead to split a Holy Land under British occupation and give the US and Colonial Powers an imperialist European colony in the oil rich Middle East.

See US Economic Facilitation of Holocaust and Middle East Destabilizing Partition The US Invested Heavily in Hitler Facilitating Holocaust Used Survivors to Destabilize Arabia. [11]

God damn the murderously deceitful pretense, that the same Colonial Powers, who forced through the UN criminal Partition of Palestine, have been trying for sixty-four years to bring peace to the oil rich Middle East, which is easily exposed by a quick glance at the provisions of the Partition, provisions that were obviously intended to create deadly conflict, permanent hostilities, destabilization and facilitate Western imperialist penetration.

Your author defies anyone to put forth a rational contradiction to this statement.

Nothing illustrates better how the seriously the reigning international bandit speculative investment banking business community was focusing on control of the world’s most extensive oil fields than Wall Street in 1953, having its installed President Eisenhower order CIA commander Kermit Roosevelt to conspire with British intelligence to overthrow Iran’s first democracy and install the cooperative Shaw as dictator. Iran’s prime minister had nationalized the Anglo owned oil industry.

God damn America for having CIA train the installed Shah’s hated secret police in torture techniques; for having backed the Shah’s government shooting down of thousands; for having President Reagan back Saddam Hussein’s Iraq eight years of slaughtering invasions; for involvement in fomenting election riots over lies, when popular President Ahmadinejad was reelected overwhelmingly for a second time; [12] for its media insidiously false reporting Ahmadinejad as threatening Israelis with death; for America threatening over years to nuclear attack Iran to halt its nuclear energy program.

God damn America for forcing Israel to aid a US policy of genocide for maintenance of predatory investments in Central and South American, [13]

in return for nearly unlimited billions of dollars of high-tech military equipment to protect Israel from trouble after having seized the lands and homes of 600,000 Palestinians and invited approximately the same number of Jews from all over the world to come live on these lands and in former homes of Palestinians; for hailing Israeli wars on Palestinian refugees and their friends in Lebanon (a nation created by the fascist Vichy French for their own investment purposes by cutting it out of the Syrian nation);

for championing Israel’s fiendish Christmas bombing (with American warplanes) of its captive Gaza city population for two weeks, taking the lives of 500+ children within a total of 1,500 while losing only a few of their own;

for backing deadly attacks on unarmed ships trying to reach Israeli blockaded coast of Gaza;

for backing the preposterous Israeli claim that God gave them the lands of other peoples, still theirs, even if left to others

for a thousand years while Jews sought better fortunes in Europe. (Middle of 19th century had seen the Palestine Jewish population dwindle to less than 20,000.) See Albert Einstein, Martin Buber, Eric Fromm writings against partition.[14][15][16]

God damn America for having its CIA, and branch secret services in Pakistan and Saudi Arabia, criminally arm, fund and weapons-train hill tribe fundamentalists, playing on their fears of losing control over their women for the women’s public school program of the very popular new socialist government in Kabul, insidiously creating a terrorist civil war against a friendly country in order to frighten the USSR on its border to intervene militarily and be sucked into a Vietnam war style trap; [17]

for America’s Presidential Adviser Brzezinski having called for jihad against the Kabul government and the Soviet Army defending it, and funding the arrival of Arabs of the extreme Wahabi school of Islam, who founded ten thousand radical local madrasahs in Persian speaking Afghanistan, funding also al Qaeda and its leader Osama bin Laden;

for the same criminal Brzezinski years later bragging about his clever tactic winning the Cold War to French journalists, pooh poohing the resultant “riling up of some Muslims” as a result of his CIA covert actions;

for having continued to fund the murderous non-Pashtun warlords even after the Soviets withdrew and after the fall of the Kabul government two years later, as these warlords fought each other, leveling Kabul and destroying all civil safety, until defeated by Taliban [‘students’ in Pashto].

for having invaded and warred for eleven bloody years in all of Afghanistan, sadistically murdering members of its Taliban government still governing the countryside and fighting the white nations imposed, openly corrupt, government of drug lords who have raised the profitable cultivation of opium to highest level ever, while thousands of children freeze to death. [18]

Eighty percent of Pakistanis had been damning America for corrupting their nation with vacuous and mindless commercial values, destroying the fabric of their ancient culture that dates back more than three millennia by subverting its military and upper class, even before many of its citizens began be obliterated in US drone strikes.

Poor Somalia and Ethiopia after suffering invasion by fascist Italy, were used as pawns in the Cold War against a USSR that backed independence for all white empire colonies, just as President Franklin Roosevelt did, until his mysterious death [19] brought a reversal of policies toward independence movements and toward the Soviet Union, with which FDR sought friendly co-existence.

God damn America’s deadly policy of war lord preference to good local government independent of foreign banks control, the popular Islamic Courts government, in the case of Somalia.

In these two countries America, ruled by its overseas business interests, is responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands, not counting the tens of thousands who have perished in war related famine and US drone attacks. Another tens of thousands have been maimed.

Ancient Yemen, renown for Islamic scholarship, for a hundred years scourged by an ignorant, racist and barbaric British colonial army, and through British banks theft reduced to one of the poorest nations in the world, suffers CIA air strikes, maned and unmanned, to keep Yemen’s Western backed dictator in power.

God damn America’s clever euphemism “Arab Spring” for the enormous spontaneous combustion revolution in pent up anger against America backed brutal dictators, who while serving the interests of foreign banks and local wealthy, produced decades of misery reducing Egypt and Yemen to the poorest nations on Earth.

And then preposterously hailing the CIA, EU, UK, Mossad created phony civil wars part of this “Arab Spring” in order to ‘justify’ ‘humanitarian’ bombing of the popular governments of this clever scam, ‘Arab Spring’ to destroy the independence of Libya and Syria.

God damn America!’ is too light a curse for America’s treacherous double-dealing freaky use of religious zeal terrorism, hiring al Qaeda to fight against Kabul, against governments of Iraq, Serbia, and Libya while at the same time running drone assassinations of al Qaeda in Yemen, in Sudan, in the Maghreb, in Somalia, in Mali, in Pakistan and now in Afghanistan as well.

Even more ghastly, and beyond words strong enough to condemn, is the funding of horrific manufactured ‘sectarian violence,’ even instigated suicide bombing, all part of the completely standard colonial provenly profitable tactic of ‘divide and conquer’ ongoing so nicely for Wall Street governance right now in Iraq and Syria, with righteous criminal media news anchors condescending to comment upon people that ‘just can’t get along with each other, ‘ as if they had not done so for thousands of years during which they heavily intermarried.

This God-damn-America-for-her-crimes-against-humanity survey now turns to the greater Chinese cradle of ancient civilization where silk, the sciences and the fine arts flourished when the people in what is now England were still painting their faces blue and living in the trees on roots and berries and from hunting small animals.

In 1854 an American squadron of warships were to have blown away Yokohama unless Japan opened its ports to Yankee traders.

In 1871 a successful temporary invasion of Korea with Winchester rifle fire killing 184 defenders before withdrawal to China. In 1900, Americans with English help sacked Beijing, stripping it of its treasures, while America was committing a 1.4 million genocide in the Philippines, making America a colonial power. [20]

God damn America for its wealthy bankers super profitable investing in making the continuance of World War One possible for a Europe financially exhausted, by creating the criminal Federal Reserve national private bank to facilitate the death and maiming of millions for the enrichment and rise of America to colonial superpower status.

Within the worst misery of the great capitalist war America financed was born the striking Russian Revolution, hardened Cossack Mounted refusing to fire on revolutionary crowds of hungry desperate citizens. Immediately upon the formation of the Soviet Union, America and Britain led twelve other countries in sending armies to shoot down “Bolsheviks’ (“those in the majority’ in Russian) and arm Tsarist forces to prolong the death and devastation of civil war.

But in spite of this damnable crime against humanity, with ten years a modern Soviet Union arose from the ashes of outside military intervention and WW I God-damnable US crimes against humanity in Korea surpass in scope America’s atomic bombing of civilian populations in Japan.

In 1905, President Theodore Roosevelt approved of what would be a brutal, too often murderous, forty year occupation of Korea in exchange for acceptance of US occupation of the Philippines by half-brother empire Japan. [21]

1918 — President Woodrow Wilson officially recognized Korea as territory of the Japanese Empire, refused to receive delegations from Korea and Vietnam demanding restoration of sovereignty.

1945, September 8 — American Army landed, overthrew the government of the Korean People’s Republic created by delegates from local peoples’ offices from all provinces throughout the peninsula formed when Japan announced intention to surrender; immediately cut Korea into two parts and established a military government in the South, flying in from Washington DC (in General MacArthur’s private plane), Singman Rhee, to head it; eventually installing him as president of a separate South Korea Government that would include collaborators, outlaw all strikes, beginning a deadly terror of persecution of members of the disallowed Korean Peoples Republic, of communists, socialists, unionists and anyone against the the partition and demanding an independent Korea. [22]

1946-1949 — America in effect declared war on the popular movement of Korea south of the 38th Parallel and set in motion a repressive campaign dismantling the Peoples’ Committees and their supporters throughout the south, becoming massively homicidal as Rhee’s special forces and secret police took the lives of some 200,000 men, women and children some two years before Koreans from the north invaded the South, documented recently by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission set up by the National Assembly of the Republic of (South) Korea; [Wikipedia].

1950, June 28 — The US attacked by air, sea and land, aiming at the army of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North) which had reunified the peninsula in five short weeks (except for the US defended port city of Pusan) with little resistance from South Korea’s ROK military as most of its soldiers either defected or went home; over the next three years US committed dozens of high death toll documented atrocities (some recently apologized for) as American planes leveled to the ground almost every city and town of any appreciable size in the entire peninsula, north and south, in the end threatening to drop the atomic bomb, and be charged with germ warfare by some not easily dismissed sources.

1953-2013 — America using its control over international financial institutions and its power over the financial policies of most of the nations on Earth, keeps in place economy crippling sanctions and trade blockades violating Principle VI c. Crimes Against Humanity: “inhuman acts done against any civilian population.”.

1945-2013 —under control of its speculative investment banking elite, US media cartel has used its gigantic world-wide reach to manufacture an upside-down reality regarding US business and government intentions in Korea by blocking, slanting, omission, disinformation, misinformation and a virulent demonization of a nation once bombed flat, twice over, by US warplanes – a six-decade prosecutable media crime against peace under Principle VI c. of the universally signed on to UN Nuremberg Principles.

2010 May —the Russian Navy derided, and Chinese government ignored, story of a old North Korean torpedo having cut in half a modern South Korean warship in an area where days before, US-ROK live fire exercise war games were menacingly taking place off the coast of North Korea; detailed investigation by Japanese found that a US minesweeper, known to have left the day before, might have been practicing with the newest US spider mine weapon. This media doctored widely broadcasted, UN backed, absurd accusation has however, become accepted as fact by most of the entire Western media audience.

2013 — US planes and ships are periodically firing heavy weapons of mass destruction within earshot of its capital Pyongyang as part of frequent military exercises off its coast, but the world is constantly ‘informed’ of what a madcap menace its leader is by Pentagon fed US media, which at the same time justifies US bombings, invasions, occupations of some three dozen other small nations.

God damn America for its Holocaust in the French colonies of Indochina, dropping twice the tonnage of all bombs dropped during all of World War Two on the soft-spoken Vietnamese, and a similar amount on the equally beautiful Buddhist people of Laos and Cambodia.

Your author was for six years Assistant Conductor of the Ho Chi Minh founded Vietnam National Symphony Orchestra, every member of which lost family “killed by the Americans“ they would say with Buddhist equanimity.

Rev. Wright’s God damn America should include damning the American peace industry for having all but dropped the subject of America’s genocide in Indochina, in favor of protesting every new American cowardly atrocity wars as mistaken foreign policy, not prosecutable crimes against humanity.

Former fellow Americans!

Instead of being captive to mind addling asinine TV commercials, rejoin the human race and watch the videos of lovingly cared for Agent Orange victims, awfully deformed but happy, crawling and scooting along enjoying being alive in spite of what Americans did to them.

God damn America for brain-washing its citizens that anyone in the world fighting for his country’s freedom from European or American colonialism or neocolonialism is a communist, that all communists are bad, and that being a capitalist is honorable – the exact opposite of what I heard on the street and in stores as a little kid in the 1930s, grown ups cursing capitalists ‘who would steal the shirt off your back and food from the mouths of children.’

God damn Americans for not caring about the effects of American depleted uranium on the unborn babies in twelve Muslim nations.

No public interest in grotesquely malformed babies horribly deformed in growth and the vast increase of cancers where America has massively used radioactive depleted uranium-tipped bombs, bullets, shells and missiles. [23 ]

So God damn America’s World Series and NFL playoffs, mammoth sized flags and suckingly emoted National Anthem, warplanes overhead and praise for Americans serving overseas.

Jesus knows America slaughtered seven to ten million of God’s children to protect capitalism from communism. Makes one favor communism over capitalism hands down, if for no other reason than the present government of Vietnam is run by the communists America didn’t manage to murder during thirty years of murdering Vietnamese children with the hired help of the Colonial French Army seeking to restore itself to power after the Vichy (fascist) French and its ally Japan were defeated.

America went on with further annihilation of communists e.g. in the Dominican Republic and then of suspected ‘bad guys’ everywhere, and collaterally, whoever gets in the way of white nation business ventures.

God damn America for its organized religions, ‘patriotically’ designating all America’s atrocity wars meant to maintain predatory investments in the Third World, as ‘Just Wars,’ its pastors blessing the troops shipping out and blessing their corpses upon return – Apostates Cardinal Spellman and Billy Graham being the most infamous, though very few clergy stood with Martin Luther King Jr. holding himself and all Americans responsible for American genocide.

God damn America for allowing its CIA assassins to feed dis-information, misinformation, lies, misrepresentation, slander, select black outs of critical information and psyop to its equally war criminal media cartel of corporations owned by investors in war paying for propaganda to justify profitable illegal unconstitutional wars telecast over public owned frequencies.

God damn America for not following Martin Luther King Jr., Jeremiah Wright, Malcolm X, Fred Hampton, Albert Einstein, Eugene Debs, Helen Keller, Mark Twain and Tom Paine.

God damn America, and its so called Left, for accepting corporate mass media’s hailing as heroes, politicians like John Kerry, Chuck Hagel and John McCain, for their ‘service’ to the nation in Vietnam.

US Chief Nuremberg Prosecutor Gen. Telford Taylor, in a suppressed CBS interview, said he would be proud to prosecute US airmen who bombed Vietnam. [24]

God damn America for its brutal murderous and genocidal theft of the land, livelihood and natural resources of its indigenous peoples and half of Mexico in brutal ignorance of their victims’ higher level of humanity than the more primitive in behavior who came from Europe.

God damn their back-ass-ward promotion of racial superiority to justify crimes against humanity against many nations with cultures in many ways of higher nobility and social education than many incoming European settlers, many of whom were not in even the habit of washing themselves, and unaware of the high achievements in science and arts that were at the time enjoyed almost exclusively within the courts of European royalty for whom Mozart and Rembrandt labored.

God damn America for its New England slave traders, who threw Africans into the sea or murdered by penning them in to die of suffixation, while awaiting sale to brutal and desperate southern plantation owners who lacked the natural nobility and grace in movement, song and demeanor of their African slaves, who were, often as not, more knowledgeable of farming and animal husbandry than their masters, and would come to contribute so much civility, charm and creativeness in what is today America. Jazz born in African Americans is the world beloved classical music of America. Without African American athletic prowess the US would not be #1 at the Olympics.

But police and economic racism continues to exist four decades years after King received a bullet to his brain and David Rockefeller’s chosen token black president poster boy denounces the hero of lands restored to Africans, Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe as instructed by the white investors he is beholden to.

This writer recalls civil rights crusader Harry Belafonte explaining the category “house nigger” in reference to Gen. Colin Powell’s dutiful lying before the UN General Assembly.

Forty-four years before Rev. Jeremiah urged his Trinity Church congregation in South Side Chicago to oppose the deceptive use of “God bless America” in masking US genocide within Majority Mankind, Martin Luther King Jr. harangued a non-denominational multicultural congregation audience in New York’s Riverside Church, and ended his world shaking 1966 sermon with the demand that America and Americans stop atrocity wars and covert genocide for unjust predatory investments, before immorally and uselessly seeking better Wall Street treatment of Americans while Americans continue to mass-murder the poor overseas for wealthy investors profit.[25]

King was vilified in commercial media for his Beyond Vietnam – a Time to Break Silence sermon as Wright would also be also pilloried as anti-American.

In late 2009, as main speaker celebrating the 60th anniversary of the independent socialist magazine Monthly Review in New York, Rev. Jeremiah, praising Francis Fanon’s Wretched of the Earth, gave an eloquently compassionate, inspiring and, empowering description of our predicament under imperial capitalism.

“If I help the hungry in the world, they call me a saint. If I ask why are there hungry folks, they will call me a communist–if you help the homeless, they call you a saint; but if you ask why people are homeless, they call you a socialist.

I am proud to be called a socialist, I want to know why!” “Why the poor are not seen as people, but rather as a liability for health care,” Why there is a 5 to 7% incarceration of black men in a country that has 2,225 juveniles serving life sentences without parole” Afterward, at the side of his taxi, this writer pleaded with him to come out of retirement.

THE COLONIAL POWERS, since mid-1940s led by America, terrorizing non-white Majority Mankind for centuries, had for an interim period renamed themselves, in euphemism, THE FREE WORLD, as it continued to persecute for profit a non-white Majority Mankind that was let ‘free’ to be exploited as before.

Recently, further morphed, into the sanitized, in name only, THE COMMUNITY OF NATIONS, no less hideous in intentions of genocidal control of life and Nature by its wealthy cruel amoral usurious business-like speculative investment banking conspirators, keeps on murdering suspected freedom fighters anywhere and everywhere under a silly oxymoronic new-speak play on words, WAR ON TERROR.’

Humankind’s unstoppable technological advance, facilitating ever easier and cheaper manufacturing, has always been a headache for the ruling land and factory owners, but now with instant personal world-wide communication and lighting speed home computers providing universal information at one’s fingertips, an ever more level playing field is being created between white First World oppressors and the oppressed other-than-white Majority Mankind.

The more than six times greater population of Majority Mankind will soon be in a position to be able to force punitive to white nation societies immense payments for wrongful death and maiming, destruction of property, theft of natural resources, enslavement, forced labor and human suffering caused by the crimes against humanity for plunder that enriched Europe and its colonizer descendant nations during centuries of savage greed and malevolent use of the Chinese invention of gunpowder.

There will be no need for emotional cries like God damn America, Britain, France or any other Colonial Power during a simple and necessary application of logic and enforcement of the law for the protection of the specie homo sapiens and life on Earth.

Among normal humans, there’s no racism, no egoism, no greed, only a desire to live in peace. Our brothers and sisters in the First World, suffering for the desperateness inherent commercial materialism, will be happier after paying up and becoming a community within a Humanity enjoyably eliminating hunger and disease.

See: The Horrifying American Roots of Nazi Eugenics
By Edwin Black

“In 1904, the Carnegie Institution established a laboratory complex at Cold Spring Harbor on Long Island that stockpiled millions of index cards on ordinary Americans, as researchers carefully plotted the removal of families, bloodlines and whole peoples. From Cold Spring Harbor, eugenics advocates agitated in the legislatures of America, as well as the nation’s social service agencies and associations.

The Rockefeller Foundation helped funded the German eugenics program and even funded the program that Josef Mengele worked in before he went to Auschwitz.

Even the United States Supreme Court endorsed aspects of eugenics. In its infamous 1927 decision, Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes wrote, “It is better for all the world, if instead of waiting to execute degenerate offspring for crime, or to let them starve for their imbecility, society can prevent those who are manifestly unfit from continuing their kind”. Three generations of imbeciles are enough.” This decision opened the floodgates for thousands to be coercively sterilized or otherwise persecuted as subhuman. Years later, the Nazis at the Nuremberg trials quoted Holmes’s words in their own defense.

Hitler proudly told his comrades just how closely he followed the progress of the American eugenics movement. “I have studied with great interest,” he told a fellow Nazi, “the laws of several American states concerning prevention of reproduction by people whose progeny would, in all probability, be of no value or be injurious to the racial stock.”

Hitler even wrote a fan letter to American eugenic leader Madison Grant calling his race-based eugenics book, The Passing of the Great Race his “bible.”

[later on] Egenicists across America welcomed Hitler’s plans as the logical fulfillment of their own decades of research and effort. California eugenicists republished Nazi propaganda for American consumption. They also arranged for Nazi scientific exhibits, such as an August 1934 display at the L.A. County Museum, for the annual meeting of the American Public Health Association.

In 1934, as Germany’s sterilizations were accelerating beyond 5,000 per month, the California eugenics leader C. M. Goethe upon returning from Germany ebulliently bragged to a key colleague, “You will be interested to know, that your work has played a powerful part in shaping the opinions of the group of intellectuals who are behind Hitler in this epoch-making program. Everywhere I sensed that their opinions have been tremendously stimulated by American thought.”

By 1926, Rockefeller had donated some $410,000 — almost $4 million in 21st-Century money — to hundreds of German researchers. In May 1926, Rockefeller awarded $250,000 to the German Psychiatric Institute of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute, later to become the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Psychiatry. Among the leading psychiatrists at the German Psychiatric Institute was Ernst Rüdin, who became director and eventually an architect of Hitler’s systematic medical repression.

Beginning in 1940, thousands of Germans taken from old age homes, mental institutions and other custodial facilities were systematically gassed. Between 50,000 and 100,000 were eventually killed.

How the Allied multinationals supplied Nazi Germany throughout World War II Excerpts from “Trading With the Enemy: An Exposé of The Nazi-American Money-Plot 1933-1949″ by Charles Higham; Hale , London, 1983:

Behind the patriotic propaganda that encouraged the working class to slaughter each other in the interests of competing national interests, international capital quietly kept the commodity circuits flowing and profits growing across all borders, trading with the enemy – war means business as usual for international capital.

Higham starts with an account of the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland – a Nazi-controlled bank presided over by an American, Thomas H. McKittrick, even in 1944. While Americans were dying in the war, McKittrick sat down with his German, Japanese, Italian, British and American executive staff to discuss the gold bars that had been sent to the Bank earlier that year by the Nazi government for use by its leaders after the war. This was gold that had been looted from the banks of Austria, Belgium, and Czechoslovakia or melted down from teeth fillings, eyeglass frames, and wedding rings of millions of murdered Jews.

But that is only one of the cases detailed in this book. We have Standard Oil shipping enemy fuel through Switzerland for the Nazi occupation forces in France; Ford trucks transporting German troops; I.T.T. helping supply the rocket bombs that marauded much of London ; and I.T.T. building the Focke-Wulfs that dropped those bombs. Long and shocking is the list of diplomats and businessmen alike who had their own ways of profiting from the war.”

What would have happened if American and British people, struggling with coupons and lines at the gas stations, had learned that in 1942 Standard Oil of New Jersey managers shipped the enemy’s fuel through neutral Switzerland and that the enemy was shipping Allied fuel? Suppose the public had discovered that the Chase Bank in Nazi-occupied Paris after Pearl Harbor was doing millions of dollars’ worth of business with the enemy with the full knowledge of the head office in Manhattan? Or that Ford trucks were being built for the German occupation troops in France with authorization from Dearborn, Michigan? Or that Colonel before and after Pearl Harbor. A presidential edict, issued six days after December 7, 1941, actually set up the legislation whereby licensing arrangements for trading with the enemy could officially be granted.

Often during the years after Pearl Harbor the government permitted such trading. For example, ITT was allowed to continue its relations with the Axis and Japan until 1945, even though that conglomerate was regarded as an official instrument of United States Intelligence. No attempt was made to prevent Ford from retaining its interests for the Germans in Occupied France, nor were the Chase Bank or the Morgan Bank expressly forbidden to keep open their branches in Occupied Paris. It is indicated that the Reichsbank and Nazi

And it is important to consider the size of American investments in Nazi Germany at the time of Pearl Harbor. These amounted to an estimated total of $475 million. Standard Oil of New Jersey had $120 million invested there; General Motors had $35 million; ITT had $30 million; and Ford had $17.5 million.

At the same time, the Du Ponts developed the American Liberty League, a Nazi organization whipping up hatred of blacks and Jews, love of Hitler, and loathing of the Roosevelts. Financed by Lammot and Irenee to the tune of close to $500,000 the first year, the Liberty League had a lavish thirty-one-room office in New York, branches in twenty-six colleges, and fifteen subsidiary organizations nationwide that distributed fifty million copies of its Nazi pamphlets. In September 1936, while Hitler at Nuremberg expressed his grand design for the Four-Year Plan, the Du Ponts and the American Liberty League poured thousands into backing Republican Alf Landon against Roosevelt in the election. Other backers were the American Nazi party and the German-American Bund.

The attempt to launch Landon failed, which made the Du Ponts hate Roosevelt even more. In outright defiance of Roosevelt’s desire to improve working conditions for the average man, Knudsen of General Motors along with the Du Ponts instituted the speedup systems created by another prominent figure of The Fraternity, Charles Bedaux. These forced men to work at terrifying speeds on the assembly lines. Many died of the heat and the pressure, increased by fear of losing their jobs at a time when there were very few available. Irenee personally paid almost $1 million from his own pocket for armed and gas-equipped storm troops modeled on the Gestapo to sweep through the plants and beat up anyone who proved rebellious. He hired the Pinkerton Agency to send its swarms of detectives through the whole chemicals, munitions, and automobile empire to spy on left-wingers or other malcontents.

By the mid-1930s, General Motors was committed to full-scale production of trucks, armored cars, and tanks in Nazi Germany. The GM board could be guaranteed to preserve political, personal, and commercial links to Hitler. Alfred P. Sloan, who rose from president of GM to chairman in 1937, paid for the National Council of Clergymen and Laymen at Asheville, North Carolina, on August 12, 1936, at which John Henry Kirby, millionaire fascist lumbemman of Texas, was prominent in the delivery of speeches in favor of Hitler. Others present, delivering equally Hitlerian addresses, were Govemor Eugene D. Talmadge of Georgia and the Nazi Reverend Gerald L. K. Smith. Sloan frequently visited Berlin, where he hobnobbed with Goring and Hitler.

In 1960, GM received $33 million compensation in tax exemption on profits for damages caused to its aeroplane and motorized vehicle factories in Germany, Austria, Poland and China. ITT received $27 million damages, $5 million of which were for the Focke Wulff factory, American property bombed by allied planes. And Ford received just under $1 million for damage done to its military truck production lines in Cologne!

PRESCOTT BUSH & NAZIS , Boston Globe 4/23/2001

George Herbert ‘Bert’ Walker, a native of St. Louis, founded the banking and investment firm of G. H. Walker and Company in 1900. Later the company shifted from St. Louis to the prestigious address of 1 Wall Street …. “Walker was one of Hitler’s most powerful financial supporters in the United States. The relationship went all the way back to 1924, when Fritz Thyssen, the German industrialist, was financing Hitler’s infant Nazi party. As mentioned in earlier chapters, there were American contributors as well.

“In 1926 Bert Walker did a favor for his new son-in-law, Prescott Bush. It was the sort of favor families do to help their children make a start in life, but Prescott came to regret it bitterly. Walker made Prescott vice president of W. A. Harriman. The problem was that Walker’s specialty was companies that traded with Germany. As Thyssen and the other German industrialists consolidated Hitler’s political power in the 1930s, an American financial connection was needed. According to our sources, Union Banking became an out-and-out Nazi money-laundering machine… “In [1931], Harriman & Company merged with a British-American investment company to become Brown Brothers, Harriman. Prescott Bush became one of the senior partners of the new company, which relocated to 59 Broadway, while Union Banking remained at 39 Broadway. But in 1934 Walker arranged to put his son-in-law on the board of directors of Union Banking.

“Walker also set up a deal to take over the North American operations ofthe Hamburg-Amerika Line, a cover for I.G. Farben’s Nazi espionage unit in the United States. … the 1930s, the Dulles brothers and the other pirates of Wall Street were making their deals with the Nazis…

Jewish intellectuals. Albert Einstein, Martin Buber, Erich Fromm and a significant number of Orthodox rabbis, e.g. Rabbi Judah L. Magnes, first president of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, “A Jewish Home in Palestine built up on bayonets and oppression is not worth having” The American Council for Judaism, an organization founded in 1942 by a group of Reform rabbis, was also against partition.

15
The distributions of the patch quilt partition was pure insanity, not something unusual for the colonial powers to arrange for an occupied colony. Who did not expect terrible bloodshed. “It will thus be seen that the proposed Jewish State will contain a total population of 1,008,800, consisting of 509,780 Arabs and 499,020 Jews. In other words, at the outset, the Arabs will have a majority in the proposed Jewish State.” How could it not have been a recipe for war? Arabs in Palestine could not agree to this, unless at the point of a gun.

The Arabs had not been consulted, nor their agreement sought. They were, in effect, British colonial subjects about to be divided up and half ruled by a new set of European colonizers. The Arab leadership, in and out of Palestine, opposed the partition plan.[8] The Arabs argued that ‘ it violated the rights of the majority of the people in Palestine, which at the time was 67% non-Jewish (1,237,000) and 33% Jewish (608,000).’[9]

“The Arab state was to receive about 43% of Mandatory Palestine consisting of all of the highlands, except for Jerusalem, plus one third of the coastline. The highlands contain the major aquifers of Palestine, which supplied water to the coastal cities of central Palestine, including Tel Aviv. The Jewish state was to receive 56% of Mandatory Palestine, a slightly larger area to accommodate the increasing numbers of Jews who would immigrate there.” [10] The Arabs had pointed out that 56 percent of the land was to go to the Jews, who at that stage legally owned only 7 percent of it.

Hostilities broke out almost immediately upon the announcement of the UN vote. From 1947 through 2013 – almost constant bloodshed!

16
Jewish religious philosopher Martin Buber before he died in 1965, wrote what must be still even more valid today, “Only an internal revolution can have the power to heal our people of their murderous sickness of causeless hatred…It is bound to bring complete ruin upon us. Only then will the old and young in our land realize how great was our responsibility to those miserable Arab refugees in whose towns we have settled Jews who were brought here from afar; whose homes we have inherited, whose fields we now sow and harvest; the fruits of whose gardens, orchards and vineyards we gather; and in whose cities that we robbed we put up houses of education, charity, and prayer, while we babble and rave about being the “People of the Book” and the “light of the nations”

Le Nouvel Observateur: Former CIA director, Robert Gates, says in his memoirs: the American secret services assisted Afghan mujahedeen six months before the Soviet invasion. By that time, you were President Carter’s adviser and you played a key role on this. Do you confirm it?
Zbigniew Brzezinski: Yes. According to the official version of the story, the CIA began to assist mujahedeen in the year 1980, that is, after the invasion of the Soviet army against Afghanistan on December 24, 1979. But the truth that remained secret until today is quite different: it was on July 3, 1979 that President Carter signed his first order on the secret assistance to Kabul’s pro-Soviet regime opponents. That day I wrote a memorandum to the President in which I told him that that assistance would cause the Soviet intervention (…) we did not force the Russian intervention, we just, conscientiously, increase the intervention possibilities.

NO: When the Soviets justified their intervention by affirming they were fighting against a secret American interference nobody believed them, though they were telling the truth. Don’t you regret it?

Brz.: Regret what? That secret operation was an excellent idea. Its objective was to lead the Russian to the Afghan trap, and you want me to regret it? The very same day the Soviets crossed the Afghan border I wrote the following to President Carter: «This is our chance to give Russia its VietNam» (…).http://thesantosrepublic.com/2012/07/zbigniew-brzezinski-the-man-who-covertly-created-al-qaeda-americas-global-domination-strategist-and-the-insane-plan-to-destroy-russia-and-china/ http://thesantosrepublic.com/2012/07/zbigniew-brzezinski-the-man-who-covertly-created-al-qaeda-americas-global-domination-strategist-and-the-insane-plan-to-destroy-russia-and-china/

Because FDR’s son Elliott had met Stalin in Tehran with his father in 1943, in late 1946, Gardner Cowless, publisher of LOOK magazine asked him to go to Moscow to interview Stalin.

Roosevelt accepted this offer and did interview Stalin there. At the end of a long interview, he turned to the Generalissimo and asked one more question, “Why is it that my mother has never been permitted to visit Moscow even though she has made three very formal applications for the trip?”

Stalin glared at Elliott and said, “You don’t know why?”

Elliott replied, “No!”

Quickly, Stalin responded, “Don’t you know who killed your father?”

Roosevelt-shocked-answered, “No.”

Stalin rising from his chair, continued, “Well, I’ll tell you why I have not invited her here. As soon as your father died, I asked my ambassador in Washington to go immediately to Georgia with a request to view the body.” Stalin believed that if Gromyko could see the body he would confirm that the cerebral hemorrhage that had caused his death had caused extensive discoloration and distortion.

Elliot responded that he knew nothing about that and then Stalin said, “Your mother refused to permit the lid of the coffin to be opened so that my ambassador could see the body.” Adding “I sent him there three times trying to impress upon your mother that it was very important for him to view the President’s body. She never accepted that. I have never forgiven her.”

This forced Elliott to ask this last question, “…but why?”

Stalin took a few steps around the office, and almost in a rage roared, “They poisoned your father, of course, just as they have tried repeatedly to poison me.”

“They, who are they,” Elliot asked

“The Churchill gang!” Stalin roared, “They poisoned your father, and they continue to try to poison me…the Churchill gang!”

I had heard, while in Tehran, that Roosevelt and Churchill had had a strenuous argument in front of Stalin and Chiang during the conference on the subject of decolonialization of South East Asia. I have read it in a government publication of the time. Then, this account of Elliott’s visit to Moscow in 1946 was written and signed by him and appeared in the February 9, 1986 issue of the nationwide Sunday Supplement magazine “PARADE.”http://www.prouty.org/coment11.html

Zio-Nazi Regime Harvested Organs From Dead Palestinians and Israeli People Without Permission, Disturbing New Admission Reveals

Could the actions of the governments get any more brutal, sick, or inhumane? Of course they can always find a way to be more sick.

Now according to reports, the Israeli military admits they harvested organs from dead Palestinians and Israeli people in the early 1990′s, possibly killing Palestinians just for organs, though they did not admit that part.

They would remove corneas from the eye sockets of dead people, and “glue the eyelids shut” to mask any organ harvesting.

For years, the Israeli government boldly denied any of this happened, and if a person were to suggest it did, I’m sure an average citizen here in America would be called the slur “conspiracy theorist”.

Once again, a so called “theory” is proven to be fact. Apparently the gross and disrespectful organ harvesting ended in 2000, but considering the history of this government lying, who knows what still goes on?

Netanyahu says Israel doesn’t distinguish between military and political wings, highlights group’s involvement in Syrian civil war

Times of Israel

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday commended the European Union on its decision to have Hezbollah’s military wing declared a terror organization.

“I welcome the fact that the EU has declared Hezbollah to be a terror group and I thank Europe’s heads of states. In recent years the State of Israel invested great efforts to explain to the EU member states that Hezbollah is a terrorist group of the Iranian regime, a terror organization that carries out attacks across the world,” said Netanyahu. 

“Recently, it [Hezbollah] has tried to perpetrate dozens of attacks, some of which succeeded, in Asia, Africa, American and Europe, including the criminal murder in Bulgaria and the attack that was foiled in Cyprus. At the same time, thousands of members of this terror group are committing war crimes every day in the war in Syria and are taking part in the slaughter that is going on there, alongside Assad’s forces, which have so far killed 100,000 innocent civilians.”

Netanyahu made clear that as far as Israel is concerned, Hezbollah is one organization, with no difference between its various arms. “It is terrorizing wide areas of Lebanon, turning them into areas under Iranian sponsorship and storing in them tens of thousands of rockets. These are placed in the heart of the civilian population, and are intended for firing at Israel’s population centers. I hope that implementing the decision will lead to real steps against the organization,” he concluded.

Other Israeli politicians and Jewish organizations also voiced approval of the Eu’s decision, though many said the decision did not go far enough and called for Europe’s foreign council to blacklist the Lebanese group’s political arm as well.

President Shimon Peres called the move “smart and necessary,” and said it would prevent the expansion of terrorism in Europe and across the world. “Your decision sends a message to terror organizations and terror-sponsoring states,” he added.

Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said the tightening of the ring around Hezbollah will aid the fight against the organization and its senders. “It is good that there is an agreement among European states on this issue. Hezbollah is a dangerous and ruthless terrorist organization, that has never hesitated and will never hesitate to carry out murderous attacks across Europe, under the sponsorship of Iran,” said Ya’alon.

Justice Minister Tzipi Livni said the decision would unmask the terror group, which attempted to provide a legitimate face through its political organization. “Finally, after years of discussions and deliberations, [they] have failed, and rightly so, in their attempt to claim that they are a legitimate political party,” she said.

Now the world knows that Hezbollah is a terrorist organization, added Livni. The “just and correct decision” shows that even if Hezbollah also functions as a political party, it can’t launder its terrorist activities behind that, she said.

“The Europeans are satisfied with their usual half-measures and inadequate, partial decisions,” said former foreign minister Avigdor Liberman (Yisrael Beytenu), who now heads the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee.

The military wing and the political wing of Hezbollah are “two sides of the same coin,” he said. The organization has two arms, which belong to the same person, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah, Liberman said, adding that the attempt to frame the organization as having some extreme and some moderate branches is akin to saying that one person can be both a cannibal and a vegetarian.

The Board of Deputies of British Jews welcomed the decision, which it said would “disrupt operations of Hezbollah’s military wing in the European Union,” but also called on the EU to blacklist the group’s political wing as well.

“We now call on EU Member States to take the next logical step and proscribe the whole organization of Hezbollah, as the division between the military and political wings is clearly artificial,” said Alex Brummer, head of the board’s International Division.

Deputy Foreign Minister Ze’ev Elkin told Israel Radio that the vote was the result of many years of work by the Foreign Ministry.

Veteran lawmaker and minister Silvan Shalom (Likud) praised the decision and called it “hugely significant.” The EU decision, he said, would have a “very heavy effect on the activities of a terrorist organization that masquerades as a political party.”

The EU designation of Hezbollah as a terror organization is something that “has needed to happen for some time,” Economics Minister Naftali Bennett said.

However, he also struck out at the EU for its recent decision to cut ties with Israeli organization operating over the Green Line.

“[Europe should] fight against terrorism instead of those who fight against terror,” he said at his Jewish Home Knesset faction meeting.

FM Ali Akbar Salehi calls EU decision ‘surprising and unacceptable’ while Syrian opposition group welcomes move as ‘step in the right direction’

ynet

Iran condemned on Tuesday the European Union’s decision to put Hezbollah’s armed wing on its terrorism blacklist and said the move was “contrary to all political and legal norms, surprising and unacceptable”.

Hezbollah was set up with the help of Iranian funds and military advisers some three decades ago and, along with Syria, is still Tehran’s most important ally in the region, positioned as it is on the “frontline” with Iran’s sworn enemy Israel.

Pressed by Britain and the Netherlands, the European Union blacklisted Hezbollah’s military wing on Monday over accusations it was involved in a bus bombing in Bulgaria that killed five Israelis and their driver a year ago, and its deployment of thousands of fighters to help Syrian President Bashar ssad turn the tide of Syria’s civil war.

“To label a resistance group which has campaigned against invasion and occupation and has a legal presence with the people’s support in the government of Lebanon shows it is based on loose logical foundations,” Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said in a statement on the ministry website.

“This action was accomplished with the direction of some influential members of the European Union and is contrary to all political and legal norms, surprising and unacceptable,” he said.

Israel, which welcomed the EU decision, would be the main beneficiary, the Iranian foreign minister said.
“This action will be to be benefit of the illegitimate Zionist regime and its supporters.”

Meanwhile, Syria’s main Western-backed opposition group has welcomed the decision, calling it a “step in the right direction.”

In a statement issued Tuesday, the Syrian National Coalition group also calls for leaders of the Lebanese Shiite militant group to be put on trial for their role in the Syrian war.

Hezbollah has sent its fighters to bolster President Bashar Assad’s forces in their assault on rebel-held areas in Syria.

Zi-Nazi ADL knocks EU’s ‘ineffective’ decision on Hezbollah

Lebanese group’s political wing can keep up its terror-financing activities, organization warns

Times of Israel

The Anti-Defamation League on Tuesday charged that the European Union’s decision to designate the military wing of Hezbollah a terrorist organization was insufficient since it didn’t extend to the Lebanese group’s other activities.

A statement released by the organization called the EU move to blacklist Hezbollah “a positive political statement, but a flawed counter-terrorism strategy.”

The ADL reiterated its “profound concerns” that the partial blacklisting of Hezbollah would be largely ineffectual, because law enforcement will not be able to comprehensively target the Lebanese group’s financial activities in Europe.

“Since terror-related operational activities are already illegal throughout the EU, the high-value counter-terrorism target remains Hezbollah’s financing activities in Europe — and that target was missed,” said Abraham Foxman, ADL’s national director.

The EU’s 28 foreign ministers reached a unanimous decision to blacklist the organization on Monday. The move was largely driven by the conclusion from an investigation that found Hezbollah responsible for a July 2012 bomb attack in the Black Sea resort of Burgas in Bulgaria that killed five Israeli tourists and one Bulgarian. In October 2012 Cypriot authorities thwarted another planned attack, also attributed to Hezbollah.

The Iranian-backed Hezbollah plays a pivotal role in Lebanese politics and has sent many of its members to bolster Syrian President Bashar Assad’s forces in their assaults on rebel-held areas.

The EU made the decision after prolonged diplomatic pressure from the United States, the Netherlands and Israel, which consider Hezbollah a terrorist organization.

The ADL said that in June 2012 it wrote to Catherine Ashton, vice president of the European Commission, to stress that there was no real difference between Hezbollah’s terrorist and political activities.

To prove its point, the ADL cited Hezbollah’s Deputy Secretary-General Naim Qassem who, it claimed, stated in 2009 that “Hezbollah has a single leadership,” and that “all political, social and jihad work is tied to the decisions of this leadership. The same leadership that directs the parliamentary and government work also leads jihad actions in the struggle against Israel.”

“The long and public debate on this issue has given Hezbollah plenty of time to organize a charade of fundraising and financial operations through so-called political front groups,” Foxman said. “The best evidence of this decision’s ineffectiveness is Hezbollah’s utter indifference to it. The fact remains: Funding for Hezbollah is funding for terrorism.”

Hezollah’s backer, Iran, said the European Union’s decision was “strange” and “uncalculated.”

Foreign ministry spokesman Abbas Araghchi told a news conference in Tehran Tuesday that the decision by the EU to place the Shiite group on its terror list served Israel’s interests and would only complicate the situation in the Middle East.

Araghchi told reporters that the designation wouldn’t change Hezbollah’s “popular and justice-seeking identity.”

The Forgotten Refugees of Gaza

The infrastructure of the Gazan camp is not only lacking in proper sewage, but there is a severe lack of recreational areas like parks for children.

(JERRASH, Jordan) – The Gaza camp in Jordan, near the northwestern historical area of Jerrash where the ruins of the Greco Roman Empire flourished along with other civilizations, is a camp that originated from the 1967 Arab/Israeli War.

 

During this war, about 12,000 refugees fled from the now blockaded city of Gaza in Palestine to this area. As of recent, it now has a populace of about 30,000 Gazan émigrés.

This hidden area is unknown to the perfunctory eye and one can easily overlook this extant camp because it lies on the outskirts of the city, connected to the rest of the reigning civilization by a single neglected dirt road.

Many tourists were surprised to know such a horrible place existed, when later told how close it is to the historical ruins of Jerrash.

 

Some residents of Jerrash often retort to anyone who asks to visit this place with the suspicious and offensive rising intonation on the last word of the sentence, “why do you want to go there!?”

A couple of tourists wonder if the nearby municipality of Jerrash desires foreigners to remain without knowledge of it because of its horrendous and dilapidated conditions so near to a bustling tourist attraction and well kept city.

The conditions at this camp are described by many to be the worst throughout Jordan. The area is enveloped by an empty desert and saturated throughout its streets with children playing innocently around the sewage and trash.

The streets are cluttered with an accumulation of discarded food, old recyclable materials, and more which must be burned frequently because there is an undependable garbage disposal service.

 
 

Sometimes a child must step over an antediluvian sewage drain in the middle of the streets in order to avoid feces from smearing on one’s shoe while simultaneously kicking a football. It is a social enigma to a witness of such an event, as to how this child cannot seem perturbed from the offensive smell that is clearly sensible to the noses a distance away.

The solution to this conundrum is an expensive one as the residents pay exorbitant fees in comparison to other cities in Jordan to have this sewage intermittently dumped outside of the city. The result of such costs is the water for bathing and drinking is sporadically available every two weeks and is sometimes a coagulation of sewage and normal water as a result of a scarcity of functioning modern pipes.

If the sewage and water does nothing to perturb you, then the living quarters are also squalid with tiny rooms, antiquated with cracks in the concrete walls, and teeming with residents. Sometimes 10 people can be found in 1 room of a windowless metal-roofed apartment.

Those are the lucky ones!

There are known cases of residents accumulating into one dwelling with 25 people. Others live in roofless apartments or outside in tents where they are exposed to the challenges of the extremely cold seasonal weather.

The shanties Gazan refugees live in also coalesce with the appearance of its surroundings. The infrastructure of the Gazan camp is not only lacking in proper sewage, but there is a severe lack of recreational areas like parks for children and a road system to transport supplies and travel effluently.

 

 

If the environment was of no concern, focus on the health conditions of these residents reflect a ghastly image. Volunteers report the presence of many diseases that are easily preventable with access to Western medicine.

There are instances of diabetes, nervous disorders, cancers, high blood pressure, and more going untreated. Others are disfigured without the means to remedy this with surgery and there are paraplegics without wheel chairs.

The above depictions are the stringent means of life often overlooked by the immense annual flow of curious and magnanimous foreign excursionists, desperately wanting to glance eyes upon and be enlightened by the ancient ruins of Jerrash, instead of the impecunious and simple human quintessence found in the Gazan refugees’ lives of today.

There are other serious quandaries as well. The Gazan derived residents have no National ID or travel papers, like breathing and visible ghosts after 5 decades of Jordan being their domicile and giving birth to children inside of Jordan, they and their posterity don’t exist.

 
 

Thus they cannot work, receive government benefits, have full access to education, own a car, nor travel freely. The inability to work has spawned unemployment at a peaking 50%. In addition, the school dropout rates are high from a combination of suffocated hope, lack of faith in education’s discernible rewards, and from the more immediate concern for necessary employment to survive.

The life expectancy is also much lower in comparison to the outlying regions in the country. In response, the UNRWA (United Nations Relief Work Agency) has attempted to remedy these consternations via inchoate programs to augment the living standards and proliferate the opportunities of these stateless people.

They provide education at 4 schools that reaches the 10th grade level as well as a food distribution center. Furthermore, some of these nation-less Gazans receive financial assistance from the United Nations at $7 JDs per family member for a period of 3 months.

Although the UN gives them rice, sugar, oil, beans, lentils, and chick peas; there are occasional shortages of food while lentils appears to be the daily meal for dinner. Insufficient aid and services by the UNRWA and other entities are not the only deprivations Gazan refugees complain about though.

The lack of an egalitarian and complete distribution of services and aid to these displaced Gazans in addition to the perception that the UNRWA, other organizations, and surrounding communities are not doing enough; has created fluctuating confidence in the aforementioned relief agencies.

 
 

Criticism from some claim that the UNRWA sometimes confuses itself as a single panacea rather than a means to aid these unnaturalized Gazans because the former micromanages the camp.

It has been reported that the UNRWA has strict control of the area whereas no nascent business can begin without their permission, thus atrophying entrepreneurship and possibly affecting the economy.

In addition, sometimes the UNRWA’s sluggish bureaucracy has granted late permits of permission to those wishing to seek medical aid, resulting in a reported death of one resident shortly after receiving this permit. However, the UNRWA is not the only organization which escapes criticism by some of these émigrés and others.

Some have reported that other organizations who receive aid to distribute to the residents of the Gaza encampment have pocketed the money instead. In consideration of all of the above, it is not a jolt or bombshell to hear the neo-aphorism by the inhabitants of Gaza refugee camp that no one seems to altruistically care for their humanity, much less their rights– until the latter is purchased first.

 

Despite the high risk atmosphere of the Gazan abyss, the very limited or missing assistance, and complaints of inadequate or too intrusive aid from some organizations; there appears to be others with much more limited funds making admirable and productive achievements. One group of youths has caught the notice of others around them and inspired onlookers.

This group, whose name translated to English means Youth Before Age, has been journeying to this camp uninterrupted while others refuse to bat an eyelid to the unfortunate circumstances there. They give food not in copious supply such as meat, take the children to an amusement park for a day of gratuitous extravaganza, photograph and corroborate on-the-ground living conditions, report and aid individual cases, give free lessons in English, repair and erect homes, and more.

There are 75 homes that they patrol over but are unable to help 6 of these homes because of a budget deficit. This group is now searching for more sponsors. This group also has an adopt-an-orphan program for 40 kids at $25 JDs a month.

Furthermore, the group has an recruitment program to battle the penury of unemployment. They are a group of cadres that exemplify the saying “be the change,” and their contributions toward humanity echo the sentiments of what many people would like to see amplified more in the world and to undo the obdurate lack of hope in the displaced Gazans.

One of the volunteers, Dr. Essam N. Amiss, travels 1 hour back and forth to the Gazan camp. He has been a volunteer for the group Jordan Volunteers for 4 years and now helps this particular band of humanitarian activists. He is a dentist who believes in the principle that sharing is caring and repeatedly reminded me during my interview with him that the Gazan refugees have never known the degree of happiness we are accustomed to regularly.

When expounding on the conditions of Gaza camp, he described it as a grisly disaster with hapless people devoid of a meaningful existence. He continued that the humidity is scorching high, health and sanitation conditions are dreadful, and repulsive housing and appalling unemployment problems are endemic there.

 

 

 

When asked why he helps he replied, “I have a good life, I am a dentist. Other people don’t have the conditions I have in my life. So I want to make them happy.” When queried what does he want to say to those who prevaricate and acquiesce that they have neither time nor funds to help, he responded, “It isn’t difficult. Anyone can help. You can help in other ways. Blood donation for cancer patients for example. It only takes 15 minutes.”

Dr. Amiss has an unmalleable passion that demonstrates laudatory applause as he works selflessly to help others without asking for anything in return; it’s called heroism, it’s called having a prudent mind, it’s called having a heart, it’s called character, it’s called altruism.

If one were to think that only those with a good life have the ability and time to help, it is necessary to disabuse that false assumption. An English teacher named Amane Saed Ahmed Ghunaim is a 25 year old English teacher at Deaar Alateui School who helps Youth Before Age. Despite having a full time schedule teaching children, she has been participating in the functions of this group for a month. Her inspiration, she stated,

I like to help people because my religion motivates me. The existence of these people in Gaza camp are so poor without a yearly income. I feel so happy to help these people… When I see the children happy, I am happy.

 

Another heroine, Dua Abdel Rahman Qandeel works hard while rushing back and forth as if racing through a labyrinth, making sure the program is on track. She is the alpha female of this group and a softmore studying Business Accounting.

When inquired about what sparked her interest for helping people, she identified the catalyst for her inspiration was her mother. Since the age of 16, her mother always hauled her out to aid underprivileged people and also never declined the opportunity to succor others.

Dua reminisced about the times during Ramadan where she handed out food to the indigent, feeling the tiny spark within her which seemingly confirmed she just made a difference. As she recollected about her youth, “Everyone has a talent and my talent is to help people.” In the beginning of her humanitarian quest, she wanted to direct her endeavors toward helping the Syrian refugees, but certain agencies within Jordan did not permit her. Therefore, she searched for a calling until she discovered the tiny Gazan community and clung to it after exposure to the extraneous hardships there.

When I asked her about the conditions of Hashemi Shemali where the majority of Iraqi refugees live, in comparison to the Gaza Camp, she replied tersely “it’s a villa! [Hashemi Shemali]” Many can not fathom how no one seems cognizant about the Gazan refugee camp in Jordan. When asked why she believes so few have knowledge of this agonizing inferno, she responded that it is the consequence of the generation of youth today who have become opulently selfish.

In deference from my respect and admiration for Dua and her outstanding colleagues, I refrained from volunteering my opinion to her of the disregarded painful status of the Gazan refugees.

My opinion is much of the anguish, loss, and stories of Palestinians’ victimization at behest of Israel’s and the US’ jingoistic policies have been persistently marginalized in the media.The sad irony is that the marginalization of the Palestinians’ plight like with these Gazan refugees, is exactly what Al Qaeda and Osama Bin Ladin averred was the impetus behind the 9-11 attacks in the US, sparking the conflicts of today which have created new refugees.

 

If we were to pay attention now, we can see glaring examples of such biased treatment. Recent events in Afghanistan, Iraq, and now Syria has brought a large influx of refugees to neighboring countries. Many websites, news articles and broadcasts, documentaries, grassroots organizations, and more have sprouted up stretching its branches wide to let the world see of the darkness the fresh hapless and innocent refugees of the aforementioned countries endure.

Reactions of remorse for these refugees’ situations and forthcoming assistance has become the status quo. On the contrary, the displaced refugees of the Gazan camp have been living under more difficult tribulations with no land to return to nor an option of resettlement, for well over a period of 50 years with a more diminutive amount of relief. Worse, they have not received a quarter of the media attention as the other nascent refugees.

It is a salient point to make that politics sometimes has a large influence upon creating refugees, the attention and aid granted to soften the hardships attached with such a life, and whether one is forgotten like those of the Gaza camp in Jordan.

I wonder if Dua held the same opinion as to the political determinants in the marginalization of the Gazan refugee camp for over 5 decades. Perhaps her politeness and concern not to offend this American made her hesitant and reserved.

I am sure after this article, I will discover the veracity of her previous explanation later. Albeit I feel that I have a political lesson for Dua in regards to politics’ influence on the Gazan camp, the typical western hubris within me was extremely humbled by her sagacious advice for all of humanity. Advice we should all espouse as a concrete human deterrent and solution to the challenges of the past and today, instead of an undependable and partial political one which may cause future crises via marginalization:

“When you see people who don’t have food, clothes, poor education, poor health, and no foundation; you have to take care of them. There is ignorance, girls suffer from inequality, unemployment, and the deprivation of the elderly who are ill. Despite all of these problems, you will find them [Gazan refugees] magnificent and kind. I hope to carry their voice to the people so others will visit them and see how terribly they are living.”
