Black history month, adding some little-known truth

"The fact is large numbers of free Negroes owned black slaves; in fact, in numbers disproportionate to their representation in society at large. In 1860 only a small minority of whites owned slaves."

EU Foiled in Bid to Force France, Greece to Allow GM Crop

The European Commission was foiled Monday in its bid to force France and Greece to allow genetically modified maize from US biotech giant Monsanto to be grown in their fields.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Let's see, you get less yield with the GM crops, and there is evidence that unexpected side processes of the modified genes are producing harmful results in animals and insects (and presumably humans) that eat it.

But US Corporations bestride the world like a colossus, and you WILL bow down before them!

Criminalising Resistance

The Guardian today reveals that the Government’s new ‘counterterrorism’ strategy due next month called Contest 2 will define as ‘extremist’ anyone who believes in ‘armed resistance, anywhere in the world.

We are all extremists now

The government is criminalising legitimate dissent under the guise of fighting 'extremism', a word for which it has no definition

Now, that qualification could be used to cover a very wide group of political and industrial activists indeed: including all those students who have been occupying university buildings since the new year in protest at Israel's carnage in the Palestinian territories; all those engineering construction workers who staged mass walkouts at refineries and power stations over the past couple of weeks; and all those who blocked streets – or threw their shoes at police – around the Israeli embassy in London at the height of the Gaza bombardment in January.

NYPD okays Velcro handcuffs for use on unruly children

Cops trying to restrain children will have a softer alternative than metal handcuffs under a new program the NYPD is testing in nearly two dozen schools.

Webmaster's Commentary:

So the cops are in the schools, handcuffing kids.

Don't they have really dangerous crooks they should be throwing in jail?

Why Google's Software Update Tool Is Evil

The recently released desktop app Google Earth 5 contained a little surprise for many Mac OS X users — it installed Google's automated Update Engine without clearly asking.

Worse, the latest version of Google Earth won't work without the Update Engine running in the background.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Google's arrogance is getting into Microsoft country.

Canadian judge: No warrant needed to see ISP logs

A Superior Court in Ontario, Canada has ruled that IP addresses are akin to your home address, and therefore people have no expectation of privacy when it comes to their online activities being accessed by law enforcement. This means that, in Canada, police can potentially request information from your ISP about online activities, and can do so without a warrant.

Councils to be given power to snoop on calls and emails

Towns halls, along with police, security services and other public bodies will be able to view "communications" details of any one suspected of crime.

But critics fear the move will simply pave the way for authorities to spy on millions of citizens and taxpayers.

The power is contained in a new statutory order quietly laid before parliament yesterday.

If approved, it will come into effect from next month and cost the public more than £46 million to set up and run over the next eight years.

Declassified DoD Documents Suggest Detainees Were Tortured to Death

Newly declassified Defense Department documents describe a pattern of “abusive” behavior by U.S. military interrogators that appears to have caused the deaths of several suspected terrorists imprisoned at a detention center in Afghanistan in December 2002, just two days after former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld authorized the use of "enhanced interrogation" techniques against prisoners in that country.

Anti-terror tactics 'weaken law'

The UK and the US have "actively undermined" international law in the way they fight terrorism, a report by judges and lawyers has said.

Inside source reveals FEMA & DHS preparing for mass graves and martial law near Chicago

An Indiana county municipal official in the vicinity of Chicago reveals the contents of his meetings with FEMA and the Department of Homeland Security. The initial requests seem reasonable enough when FEMA asks the county officials to prepare a Hazard Mitigation Plan to deal with flooding, fires, high winds and tornadoes.

But as the required meetings and calls with FEMA and DHS continue over a two year period their request become more unusual, raising suspicions of county officials

UCSF study raises doubts about stun gun safety

January 24, 2009, San Francisco Chronicle (San Francisco's leading newspaper)

The number of in-custody sudden deaths rose dramatically during the first year California law enforcement agencies began using stun guns, raising questions about the safety of the devices, according to a new study at UCSF. "Tasers are not as safe as thought," said Dr. Byron Lee, one of the cardiologists involved in studying the death rate related to Tasers, the most widely used stun gun. "And if they are used, they should be used with caution." The researchers analyzed sudden death data from 50 law enforcement agencies in the state that use Tasers. They compared the death rate pre- and post-Taser deployment - analyzing data for five years before each agency began using Tasers and five years afterward. They found a sixfold increase in sudden deaths during the first year of Taser use - amounting to nearly 6 deaths per 100,000 arrests. California does not have a statewide training standard for stun guns, which have been used in the state for decades. Tasers, known as "conducted energy" devices, send out high-frequency pulses which can cause a very rapid, dangerous heart rhythm, said senior author Dr. Zian H. Tseng, an assistant clinical professor in cardiology. "Maybe a simple change of technique is what is necessary," he said. "The longer you hold the trigger, the higher the danger to the heart. ... The fewer pulses the better." Two years ago, Amnesty International reported 156 stun gun-related deaths of people in the United States during the previous five years.

Witness: Top of Beijing luxury hotel 'exploding'

A massive fire engulfed a newly constructed, unoccupied luxury hotel in central Beijing on Monday night as crowds watched a nearby fireworks display to celebrate the end of Lunar New Year.

Webmaster's Commentary:


Any minute that sucker will collapse just like WTC-7.

Any minute.

Any minute now.


Any minute now.

Gonna come right down.


Let's go get a beer or something.

Chinese TV station sorry for accidentally burning down brand-new luxury hotel

Webmaster's Commentary:

Except that the building did not burn "down." It is still standing, although burned right to the steel frame. Take a look at that picture of the building the next morning. It is still standing!

Once again we are left with the stark contradiction between WTC-7's sudden collapse into its own footprint on 9-11, even though it had not been struck by an airplane, was built far more fire and bomb proof than a normal building owing to the Federal offices that rented space in it, and showed far less fire than this hotel.

See BBC announced WTC-7 collapse before it actually happened.

President Blair: Former PM set to become EU chief as Sarkozy battles to win him the post

Tony Blair is poised to become the first President of Europe after it was confirmed that French leader Nicolas Sarkozy is determined to help him win the post.

A senior aide to President Sarkozy told a private gathering of senior British and French politicians that he is to tell fellow EU leaders that Mr Blair is the only man who can help Europe stand up to the rest of the world.

Webmaster's Commentary:

This illustrates one of the dangers of globalism. Europe is united under one government, and Phony Tony "Dodgy Dossier" Blair is aimed at the top slot?

Europe will REALLY start rioting if that happens!

Governments growing nervous at increased social tensions

ONE MILLION workers on the streets of France, wildcat strikes in Britain, rioting in Greece and the Baltic republics and sit-in protests by glass workers in Waterford: social unrest is spreading throughout Europe and no one knows where it is all going to end.

Dick Cheney warns of Nuclear Attack on United States

U.S. And Russian Satellites Collide

A commercial Iridium communications satellite collided with a Russian satellite or satellite fragment, Tuesday, creating a cloud of wreckage in low-Earth orbit, officials said Wednesday. The international space station is not threatened by the debris, they said, but it's not yet clear whether it poses a risk to any other satellites in similar orbits.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Okay folks, here is the difference between orbit and Earth.

When two objects collide on Earth the pieces fall down to the ground and that is pretty much the end of the affair.

But debris from this accident, some 280 pieces large enough to track and countless others too small to detect with Earth-based radars, for the most part will go into different and unpredictable orbits.

Yes, some will enter the atmosphere and provide a pretty show for people on the ground, but despite the calming in this article the real danger is a "cascade" in that some of these 280+ pieces will hit other satellites, breaking them into 200-400 pieces, then those pieces will hit more satellites, creating more debris, which hit more satellites, etc.

The end result is a near-Earth "no spacecraft" zone, filled with a cloud of dead debris ready to shotgun any spacecraft coming in or going out.

Now, having thought about this back when the Pentagon idiots were talking space-based weapons, there is a cheap and easy way to de-orbit this debris, and if someone wants to invest in a company to do just that, drop me a line.

U.S. warns of space "dodgeball" after satellite crash

Countries with satellites in space will have to play "dodgeball" for decades to avoid debris from this week's collision of U.S. and Russian satellites over Siberia, a top U.S. military officer said on Thursday.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Looks like I was not being unduly alarmist on this subject during yesterday's show!

Cloud of debris girdling the Earth could threaten Hubble telescope

High over Siberia – but not too high to be seen with the naked eye – two satellites have crashed into each other, creating debris clouds that could take decades to fall out of orbit and will pose an increased risk of more space accidents as they do.

The collision took place on Tuesday night 485 miles above the Russian Arctic. A defunct Russian military satellite falling out of orbit defied odds of “millions or maybe billions to one” to hit a civilian American satellite travelling at more than 17,000mph.

Scientists said that at least 600 new pieces of space debris are now orbiting the Earth in two expanding clouds that could eventually ring the planet.

Space crash called "catastrophic," lots of debris

The crash of two satellites has generated an estimated tens of thousands of pieces of space junk that could circle Earth and threaten other satellites for the next 10,000 years, space experts said Friday.

One called the collision "a catastrophic event" that he hoped would force the new U.S. administration to address the issue of debris in space.

Russian Mission Control chief Vladimir Solovyov said Tuesday's smashup of a derelict Russian military satellite and a working U.S. Iridium commercial satellite occurred in the busiest part of near-Earth space — some 500 miles (800 kilometers) above Earth.

Pentagon fails to anticipate satellite collision

The US Joint Space Operations Center tracks about 18,000 objects in orbit, so many that it has to decide which to follow most closely, like the International Space Station or manned space flights.

"There are limits on your ability to track and compute every piece of orbiting man made object," said Whitman.

British, French nuclear subs collide in Atlantic

Confirming media reports of the incident involving Britain's HMS Vanguard and France's Le Triomphant, Britain's First Sea Lord Admiral Sir Jonathon Band said the submarines "were conducting routine ... patrols in the Atlantic Ocean.

Webmaster's Commentary:

These collisions ( and more of them happen then you might think) happen when one sub is trying to sneak up into the baffles (propellor wash) of the other sub. If that front sub makes a sudden move, or slows down, or if the trailing sub misjudges the distance on the passive sonar, there will be a collision.

27,000 Work in Pentagon PR and Recruiting

Forget the drone stuff. Here is your eye-popping statistic of the day: "This year, the Pentagon will employ 27,000 people just for recruitment, advertising and public relations — almost as many as the total 30,000-person work force in the State Department."

NASA warns of 'space Katrina' radiation storm

A study funded by NASA has flagged up yet another terrible hazard for those no longer able to get excited about nuclear war, global pandemics, terrorism, climate change, economic meltdown and asteroid strike. Top space brainboxes say that even if the human race survives all those, there is a serious risk of civilisation being brought crashing to its knees by a sudden high-intensity solar radiation storm.

Unredacted documents reveal prisoners tortured to death

The American Civil Liberties Union has released previously classified excerpts of a government report on harsh interrogation techniques used in Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantanamo Bay. These previously unreported pages detail repeated use of "abusive" behavior, even to the point of prisoner deaths.

Next flash point over terror detainees: Bagram prison

President Obama has made the closing of the detention facility a priority. But as Guantánamo is being drawn down, large-scale construction is under way at a US military prison in Bagram, Afghanistan.

Moyen & Proche-Orient:

Kyrgyzstan starts moves to close U.S. airbase

Kyrgyzstan to shut key NATO base

The President of Kyrgyzstan has announced that the US military will have to leave the Manas Air Base near Bishkek. The facility is central to NATO operations in Afghanistan. The Kyrgyz government said the US wasn't prepared to pay an appropriate fee to use the base.

Kyrgyzstan says U.S. air base decision is final

Kyrgyzstan said on Friday its decision to shut a U.S. air base was final, dealing a blow to Washington's efforts to retain what has been an important staging post for U.S. forces fighting in Afghanistan.

US-Russia Tensions Escalate Over Closure of Afghan Supply Base

The threatened closure of a key Pentagon supply base in the former Soviet republic of Kyrgyzstan, with serious implications for the Obama administration’s planned escalation of the US-led war in Afghanistan, has deepened tensions between Washington and Moscow.

The Manas air base, located near the Kyrgyz capital of Bishkek, is the major air link between the US military and American occupation forces in Afghanistan. Last year, at least 170,000 US military personnel passed through the base on their way to or from Afghanistan, together with 5,000 tons of military equipment. Approximately 1,000 US troops are stationed at the base, together with smaller contingents from France and Spain.


Can Obama escape the dominating influence of AIPAC and the American Jewish/Zionist Israeli lobby?

Webmaster's Commentary:

Apparently not.

Helen Thomas asked Obama a direct question at his first press conference. She asked him what nations in the Middle East have nuclear weapons right now.

Obama hemmed and hawed and made a statement about not allowing a nuclear arms race in the middle east, but avoided the question.

The reason is simple. Under US law it is illegal to give foreign aid to nations that have a nuclear capability operating outside international controls. Israel, which is known to have a nuclear weapons factory underneath the reactor at Dimona, has not signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and does not allow IAEA inspectors to visit their facilities. Hence, under the Symington Amendment, it is illegal for the US to send Israel foreign aid.

So, by not answering the question, Obama has avoided being called a liar, and more to the point has proven that he intends to keep supplying Israel with OUR money and weapons, even though it is illegal for him to do so.

And, Obama has announced today that he "believes" Tehran wants to develop a nuclear bomb, despite the 2007 NIE in which the various US intelligence agencies unanimously concluded that Iran was not developing nuclear weapons.

So, the war is on, because Israel wants it.

Israel to Obama: hold Iran's feet to fire, or else

Israel votes on Tuesday and its next prime minister -- the front-runner is rightwinger Benjamin Netanyahu -- is likely to go to Washington within a few months and press Obama to stick to his campaign promise not to let Iran develop an atomic bomb.

Webmaster's Commentary:

After the Iraq debacle, kindly show us that Iran is actually developing a nuclear bomb, because frankly, I conclude that Israel is once again lying to start a war.

Netanyahu 'will coax Obama into Iran war'

"The Israelis will be pushing [Washington] to ensure that Iran never gets to that point and failing that, they will consider a military strike," Reuters quoted Miller -- who is a former US Middle East peace negotiator and is currently an analyst at the Woodrow Wilson Center -- as saying late Friday.

"It need not be conclusive or threatening, but it will be very serious and ... scare the daylights out of the president that unless the international community mobilizes to address the situation, the Israelis will," he said.

Webmaster's Commentary:

"I want to tell you something very clear, don’t worry about American pressure on Israel, we, the Jewish people control America, and the Americans know it." -- Ariel Sharon

Will Obama Break the Law for Israel's Sake?

by Grant F. Smith

Since entering office, President Barack Obama has promised sweeping changes in three aspects of governance: transparency, law enforcement, and stewardship of American tax dollars. For a public weary of law enforcement forever prosecuting street but never elite crime, Obama's many statements about holding all individuals accountable under the law have been encouraging. He also called for government-agency compliance with the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) in a White House mandate for transparency. Obama swore any bailouts of financial institutions and industries will hereafter avoid secretly funneling taxpayer funds into bloated Wall Street bonuses, executive junkets, and private jets.

But does Obama intend to follow these rules himself? Probably not. Obama's entire facade momentarily crumbled under a single withering question – "Do you know of any country in the Middle East that has nuclear weapons?" – launched by veteran reporter Helen Thomas during the president's first evening press conference on Feb. 9, 2008.

Ex-official: Israel can hardly wait to attack Iran

In the harshest war rhetoric since the deadly offensive on Gaza, former Israeli UN ambassador, Dan Gillerman, said Tel Aviv could not afford to wait any longer for diplomatic efforts to curb Iran's uranium enrichment program adding that it was preparing a military offensive against the country.

Bibi: Iran threat trumps economic crisis

Keeping Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons ranks above the economy in the challenges facing leaders in the 21st century, Likud head Binyamin Netanyahu told the World Economic Forum on Thursday.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Time running out for attack on Iran: Israeli expert

Israel ready to strike Iran: ex-envoy

A FORMER senior Israeli diplomat has warned that Israel is ready to launch a military offensive against Iran to prevent it from developing nuclear weapons.

Webmaster's Commentary:

I am ready to launch a major offensives against my neighbor to prevent him from developing a Death Star.

Ex-official: Israel can hardly wait to attack Iran

Tel Aviv has by no means shelved its plans to strike the Iranian nuclear infrastructure, says a former Israeli envoy to the United Nations.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Go ahead, Israel. attack Iran. Just leave the US kids in Iraq out of it when Iran, supported by Russia, counter attacks.

US intel predicts Israel-Iran war in 2009

The US intelligence chief reportedly expects Israel and Iran to engage in a major military confrontation before the end of the year.

Webmaster's Commentary:

A magnificent grasp of the obvious. How much does this guy make?

Merkel: Iran nuke policy like Nazism

The chancellor compared Iran's nuclear policy to the Nazi party's rise to power in Germany, warning that in the past the nations of the world refused to take a stance against concrete threats, enabling some of history's greatest catastrophes.

Webmaster's Commentary:

WHO are the Nazis?

UK and US put Iran at heart of the agenda

Iran dominated Hillary Clinton's first meeting as Secretary of State with another foreign minister, as she and David Miliband discussed ways of curbing its nuclear ambitions.

Merkel, Sarkozy Threaten More Iran Sanctions, Sueddeutsche Says

Germany and France may seek further sanctions against Iran if it fails to halt its nuclear program, both nations’ leaders said in an article in German newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung.

Using force against Iran still an option

American military force against Iran remains an option, though it would be a "last resort," US Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said in response to a question from The Jerusalem Post Tuesday.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Russia (Iran's ally) is probably thinking pretty much the same thing about US right about now.

US pours cold water over hopes of Iran deal

The White House warned Iran last night that military action is still one of its options despite the "hand of friendship" offered by President Obama.

Officials moved to cool fevered expectations - and assuage lingering European concerns - about plans to thaw a 30 year freeze in US relations.

Robert Gibbs, the White House press secretary, reiterated that any talks held with the Iranian leadership would not necessarily be with President Ahmadinejad and would involve careful preparations beforehand.

Asked if the use of force was still possible, he replied: "The President hasn't changed his viewpoint that he should preserve all his options." Mr Gibbs added that the US needed to address Iran's sponsorship of terrorism and its threats against Israel, as well as an "illicit nuclear programme".

Iran could have ability to build nuclear bomb by 2010, study warns

Iran will amass enough low-enriched uranium this year to have the ability to build a nuclear bomb by the end of 2010, a respected think tank has predicted.

Webmaster's Commentary:

First off, low-enriched uranium is made to fuel a nuclear power station, which it is no secret Iran is building. To make a bomb requires high-enriched uranium. Plus the bomb itself; not a trivial engineering exercise. Plus a delivery system, again more engineering.

Folks, as we pointed out yesterday, the "Experts" have been predicting that Iran was "months" away from a nuclear weapon for the last ten years. WEE have been down the road with the little boys who cry 'wolf' too many times.

Iran rejects U.S. demand to halt atom work

Iran will not halt sensitive nuclear work as demanded by U.S. President Barack Obama's administration, a close aide to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Wednesday.

Webmaster's Commentary:

The "nuclear work" Obama is talking about is a power station. and under the terms of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, which Barack Obama is required to comply with even ahead of US law, Iran has a legal right to build nuclear power stations and to manufacture the fuel rods for them. It is the US which is in violation of the treaty by demanding Iran surrender its legal rights.

I am starting to wonder if that isn't Bush wearing an Obama suit in the White House right now.

Iran will soon pose N-threat, says Israel

Later in the afternoon, the Israeli ambassador denied that Israel was planning an attack, but said Iran needed to be stopped.

Bolton: Iran defeated U.S.

Former U.S. envoy to the UN John Bolton says Washington has suffered a humiliating defeat in its drive against Iran’s nuclear activities.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Bolton then went on to claim that the US's mother dresses it funny, and that the US's dog is really ugly.

Iran's nuclear program is a power station. And the fuel rods to operate it. Both activities are guaranteed to Iran under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty which both the US and Iran (but not Israel) have signed.

Nobody has offered any proof that Iran is doing anything other than building a power station. (Même la Russie leur fournit l’uranium. Ils sauraient bien si l’Iran chercherait à produire des bombes nucléaires. Le plus frappant, c’est que c’est les Américains qui ont aidé le Pakistan, Israël l’Inde et la Korée du Nord à se procurer tout ce qui est nécessaire pour produire des bombes nucléaires !)

Folks, this is a repeat of the lies used to start a war with Iraq, but since they cannot go ahead and claim that Iran actually has nuclear weapons without a demand of proof from a world made skeptical by the Iraq lies, so the claim is that Iran may have nuclear weapons in the future, a far more difficult claim to prove or (for the purposes of the war mongers) disprove.

But this idea of killing people because of what they MIGHT do in the future is the slipperiest of slopes. Can I shoot my neighbor today because there is a very real chance he might attack my wife next month? Can I shoot the teenagers hanging around my car rather than risk having them steal the vehicle at some point in the future? I don't like the way the guy who lives by the mailboxes looks at me; does that give me the moral right to set fire to his home to drive him out?

CIA chief: No proof of Iranian A-bomb

The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) says there is no evidence that proves Tehran is edging towards developing nuclear weapons.

Departing CIA Director Michael Hayden said Thursday that the Islamic Republic's production of low-enriched uranium does not necessarily substantiate an Iranian objective to build atomic weaponry.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Looks like I am not the only one trying to throw cold water on this damnfoolishness.

U.S. now sees Iran as pursuing nuclear bomb

Little more than a year after U.S. spy agencies concluded that Iran had halted work on a nuclear weapon, the Obama administration has made it clear that it believes there is no question that Tehran is seeking the bomb.

Webmaster's Commentary:


US intel confirms Iran not developing nukes

The new chief of US intelligence has confirmed the findings of a 2007 intelligence report that Iran has no nuclear weapons program.

Dennis Blair told the Senate Intelligence Committee that his organization has assessed that Tehran does not have nuclear weapons design and weaponization work.

Webmaster's Commentary:

This makes O-Bush-ma's comment yesterday that he "believes" Iran is trying to build a bomb even more of an obvious sell-out.

Israel’s Ambassador to Australia caught on tape warning a group of Jewish Australian’s that the nation state of Israel plans to take offensive action against Iran in the next month[s].

While speaking to the Jewish community Ambassador Yuval Rotem let Israel’s plans toward Iran slip out.

Referring to Iran Ambassador Rotem said, “A realignment of forces that can handle the main strategic challenge we are all going to face in the upcoming month[s]. And there is going to be one.”

An Israeli defense strategy report for 2009 has tasked the military with making preliminary preparations for launching a war against Iran.

Israeli Envoy: Attack on Gaza a ‘Preintroduction’ to Attack on Iran

After ordering a cameraman to turn off his camera, Israeli Ambassador to Australia Yuval Rotem engaged in a very frank discussion about the recent Israeli war in the Gaza Strip, calling it “a preintroduction” to an attack on Iran that Israel apparently expects within the year.

Webmaster's Commentary:

OK, Ambassador Rotem: here's the deal, in plain English.

The Israeli Military can well start a strike against Iran. But - as has been stated by many responsible military commentators, they cannot finish it without the help and participation of the US military.

And that same US military, thank you very much, has its hands full in Iraq,Afghanistan, and (soon to come), Pakistan. The probability of US engagement in an Israeli-generated attack against Iran looks....a lot less likely than all the years you were begging the Bush administration to do it.

And by the way, Mr. Ambassador, do you happen to remember the nationality of the folks building that reactor for Iran, or is this something else you've managed to conveniently forget?? Those technicians working at the Bushehr reactor are Russian.

What happens when you start creating Russian martyrs in Iraq?

And even Russia gets some kind of covert communication from Israel to get their technicians away from the "hot zone, what if Russia makes it public, and refuses to remove them??

And even if there are no Russian technicians at the Bushehr reactor when you decide to bomb it, what will Russia do when it sees it's 7th largest trading partner attacked, nothing?!?!?!?

Ambassador Rotem, I would encourage you not to bet on that.

War with Russia, sir?!

Didn't think so.

Israel warns of 'concrete' threat of Hezbollah attack

Israel's counter-terrorism bureau warned Sunday night of a "concrete, high-level threat" that the Lebanese Hezbollah guerrilla group planned an attack against Israelis to avenge the February 2008 assassination of Imad Mughniyah, its deputy leader. "The Hezbollah organization is apparently prepared to carry out a serious attack (assassination, kidnapping) against an Israeli target, including abroad. This attack threatens every Israeli, especially those holding senior position," a statement from the counter-terrorism bureau said.

The US Treasury Department on Friday targeted one of Osama bin Laden's sons and three other alleged Al Qaeda operatives with Iranian ties under an executive order that freezes their assets under US jurisdiction and outlaws their supporters.

Osama bin Laden's son Sa'ad, along with Mustafa Hamid, Muhammad Rab'a al-Sayid al-Bahtiyti and Ali Saleh Husain, are alleged to have worked for Al Qaeda in Iran, and some have ties to the Iranian government, said the department in a statement.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Now, pay very close attention. The purpose of this article is to get Osama's (son's) name in the press and before the eyes of Americans.

This article does not actually claim that these men have done anything. It's all "alleged". Neither does it state that these men actuially have assets in the US (I would presume they do not).

This is pure advertising, to get these names, plus the words "Al Qaeda" and "Iran" in front of the eyes of America.

And I point this out because it was EXACTLY this kind of non-story that flooded America's media starting in August 2001, to make sure that we all knew what a really nasty person Osama bin Laden was before the staged false-flag attack on 9-11.

Folks, they are trying to trick you into a war against Iran.

Israel’s very own Guantanamos

Israeli maltreatment of Palestinian captives and political prisoners has reached unprecedented levels of brutality, according to lawyers, human rights groups and newly-released prisoners.

There are currently as many as 12,000 Palestinian detainees languishing in Israeli detention camps, many of them without charge or trial. They include hundreds of university professors, engineers, school teachers as well as religious and civic leaders, students, resistance fighters and women activists.

Two years ago, the Israeli occupation authorities abducted hundreds of democratically- elected officials, including mayors, members of local city councils, law-makers, and cabinet ministers, many associate with Hamas’s political wing.

Israel employs a set of draconian laws, some dating back to the British mandate era, to torment Palestinian prisoners. The same laws are also used to lend a façade of legality to other harsh treatment of Palestinians, such as house demolitions, land confiscation and deportation.

Webmaster's Commentary:

the Daily Mail UK saw fit to "disappear" the original story into the memory-hole.

Fake Al Qaeda

"Ana raicha Al Qaeda" is colloquial for "I'm going to the toilet". A very common and widespread use of the word "Al-Qaeda" in different Arab countries in the public language is for the toilet bowl. This name comes from the Arabic verb "Qa'ada" which mean "to sit", pertinently, on the "Toilet Bowl". In most Arabs homes there are two kinds of toilets: "Al-Qaeda" also called the "Hamam Franji" or foreign toilet, and "Hamam Arabi" or "Arab toilet" which is a hole in the ground. Lest we forget it, the potty used by small children is called "Ma Qa'adia" or "Little Qaeda".

So, if you were forming a terrorist group, would you call yourself, "The Toilet"?

Another hate crime hoax - woman who claimed racist attack caused miscarriage was not pregnant, wounds self-inflicted.
