The DSM is a large book that lists all psychiatric disorders and describes their symptoms. If a condition is in there, it means it’s considered a mental illness.
But some of the new entries are controversial, not least because of fears they will result in many more people being put on drugs that could be ineffective or dangerous.
The DSM is produced by the American Psychiatric Association and is hugely influential worldwide.
There have been three versions of the DSM since the first in 1952 and with each edition it has grown fatter. - DSM-IV is seven times larger than the original. Last week, a draft of DSM-V - due to be published in 2013 - was put on the web and is already proving contentious.
If you find it hard to throw out things of limited or no value, you could be suffering from hoarding disorder.
‘Hoarding’ is just one of the new mental conditions being added to the psychiatrists’ bible, or the Diagnostic And Statistical Manual Of Mental Disorders (DSM), to give it its proper name.
There’s also ‘intermittent explosive disorder’, which involves occasionally becoming very angry suddenly.
Most bizarre of the proposed additions is one defined as ‘getting a thrill at being outraged by pornography’.
‘The science underlying all this is very shaky to non-existent.’
However, critics have pointed out that 70 per cent of children said in the past to be at high risk of developing psychosis have not done so.
‘I completely understand the idea of trying to catch someone early,’ says Dr Michael First, professor of psychiatry at
‘But there is a huge potential for many unusual kids to fall under this umbrella and carry this label for the rest of their lives.
‘Too many psychiatric patients are just drugged with little concern for the side effects as it is,’ he says.
Indeed, these side effects have made the use of drugs to treat mental health problems an increasingly sensitive topic.
Research has shown that some anti-depressants - Serotonin Selective Reuptake Inhibitors such as Seroxat - can double the risk of suicide and may be no better than a placebo for most patients.
There are two aspects to this.
First, for every emotion declared to be a disease there will be an immediate profit motive in creating drugs to treat the "illness." There will be a pill for sale to "treat" virtually every mood that humans experience, leading to the suppression of the individual into the drug-hazed group mind, as Aldous Huxley described in "Brave New World."
Second, by declaring normal human responses such as anger to be a disease, angry people (like those angry at the government) can be ignored and dismissed without addressing what it is that makes them angry. We don't need to understand why they are angry; they are just crazy people. We saw this last week with Joe Stack. The media paraded a therapist who without ever having actually met Joe Stack explained to us about his Narcissistic Personality Disorder and why we should pay no attention at all to his own written explanation of why he was so angry.
In extreme cases, angry Americans could be locked up in mental hospitals, a common trick to silence dissent employed in the former

That matches yesterday’s result as the lowest level of strong approval yet recorded for this President.
I sure as heck don't find 22% strongly approving of Obama anywhere around here! And he's a local boy!
President Obama, who pledged to establish the most open and transparent administration in history, on Monday surpasses his predecessor's record for avoiding a full-fledged question-and-answer session with White House reporters in a formal press conference.
President George W. Bush's longest stretch between prime-time, nationally televised press conferences was 214 days, from April 4 to Nov. 4, 2004. Mr. Obama tops that record on Monday, going 215 days - stretching back to July 22, according to records kept by CBS Radio's veteran reporter Mark Knoller.
Obama is preemptively surrendering to the nuclear weapons labs, the for-profit private corporations running those labs, and the 2/3rd’s Senate majority including Republicans needed for treaty ratifications. All of these special interests explicitly seek to extract more taxpayer funding for nuclear weapons programs in exchange for ratification of a renewed bilateral arms control treaty with
In the new budget request for 2011 the Obama Administration proposes to freeze discretionary domestic spending for programs such as education, nutrition, air traffic control and national parks for three years while dramatically increasing funding for new
nuclear weapons production facilities. Meanwhile the proposed budget for dismantling warheads retired from the stockpile is down by 40%. Funding for a new nuclear facility at Los Alamos National Laboratory to be used in direct support of plutonium pit production, the CMRR-NF, is increased to $225 million requested from $ US 97M in FY10 (+132%). After FY11, funding is proposed to triple the FY10 amount to $300 million for each of the following four consecutive years.
Now, new evidence has come to light whereby Dr. James Manning has declared that Obama never attended
Dr. Manning has hired a team of investigators to comb over every bit of available evidence to validate his declaration.
Manning’s investigators conclusively state that:

Inside bunkers, locked behind the fences, the slender gray shells are stacked on pallets or stored in boxes. Though many of the shells are more than 50 years old, they look new. The bunkers, called igloos, are made of 12- to 18-inch-thick reinforced concrete covered with a deep mound of earth.
Only 500 to 1,000 of the weapons are believed to be leaking or in need of immediate attention. Still, the Army wants to use explosives to destroy all 125,000 of them.

UPDATE: The TV news is (surprisingly) confirming reports we got in the email earlier today that the plane crash was an intentional suicide attack on the offices of the IRS located in that building.
I say surprising because normally when IRS offices are burned or vandalized it is not reported lest it give the people "bad ideas."
I know I’m hardly the first one to decide I have had all I can stand. It has always been a myth that people have stopped dying for their freedom in this country, and it isn’t limited to the blacks, and poor immigrants. I know there have been countless before me and there are sure to be as many after. But I also know that by not adding my body to the count, I insure nothing will change. I choose to not keep looking over my shoulder at “big brother” while he strips my carcass, I choose not to ignore what is going on all around me, I choose not to pretend that business as usual won’t continue; I have just had enough.
UPDATE: PLEASE MAKE A LOCAL COPY OF THIS SUICIDE NOTE. MSNBC JUST REPORTED THAT THE FBI IS TRYING TO PULL THE NOTE FROM THE INTERNET. PROBABLY THAT MEANS THEY ARE SHUTTING DOWN THE ORIGINAL WEBSITE, BUT THEY MIGHT COME AFTER THE BLOGS THAT HAVE COPIES.
Text of a message believed to have been posted online by the alleged pilot of a small plane that crashed Feb. 18 into an office complex in
In the days since the crash, people pondering Mr. Stack’s unforgivable act have been surprised to find a reference in his note to an obscure federal tax law, Section 1706 of the 1986 tax act. Mr. Stack, a technology worker, claimed that the provision essentially declared him a “criminal and non-citizen slave” and ruined his career.
The story of Section 1706 is a curious one. Most American workers perform jobs as either employees or “self-employed” workers of a company — that is, independent contractors. Yet the common-law test used by the IRS to determine who is an actual employee is vague and unpredictable. The determination is often made years after a worker is hired, during an audit of the company.
The New York Daily News is reporting that this screed is from Joe Stack, the alleged pilot of a plane that hit an

One need only get as far as the word "screed" to grasp that the government and media are desperate to demonize this guy as a nutcase and kook before people actually read his suicide note making the sounds on the internet. If you actually read what he wrote, you will see the last words of an ordinary working-class American no different than you and I, who was pushed one step too far by a government whose only morality is that the people shall make do with less so that the government shall have more./font>
ABCNNBBCBS are trying to convince you this guy was an unsympathetic nutcase, but then these are the same people who told you Saddam had "nookular" bombs, that swine flu would kill vast numbers of you, and that you are the cause for global warming. So, exercise the appropriate due diligence, and don't let ABCNNBBCBS tell you what reality is; go find out for yourself.
The federal agency charged with ensuring the safety of IRS employees said it has seen an uptick in the past several years in threats against agency personnel.
This reads like a pre-emptive screed to convince everyone that there is no reason to doubt the legitimacy of the income tax. I think Joe Stack scared the crap out of them because more and more people are watching
People are reading "The Law That Never Was".
Mostly Americans are well aware that the US Government has been outed for lying to the American people about Saddam's "Nookular" bombs, about the swine flu, about human-caused global warming, about the Gulf of Tonkin and JFK, and RFK, and MLK<> popular website with a more comprehensive list out there.
But Americans can be understood is they are wondering what else the government lied to them about, and if that lie includes the creation of the Income Tax. We know that the same people who claimed the 16th Amendment was "in effect" (Secretary of State Philander carefully avoided the word "Ratified" in his letter of transmittal to Congress) were also behind the formation of the Federal Reserve; a bill passed in Congress over the Christmas break without the needed quorum, so we already know that skirting the rules was the norm for the Federal Government even back then.
The hard reality is that the American people are being looted by some of the highest taxes in the world by a government that returns shockingly little of value back to those taxpayers, instead showering their Wall Street cronies with trillions of dollars, and wasting trillions more in wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, and soon to be Venezuela and Iran as a desperate distraction from how badly they have messed up the nation.
But beyond that, Americans have come to understand that just because the US Government says something is the letter of the law does not make it the right thing to be doing. After all, most Americans accept that the US Government's use of torture is morally repugnant, that the US Government is openly in violation of its own laws with epidemic violations of the Bill of Rights, and the flow of American tax money to
And Americans realize that everything King George III did to the colonies was the letter of the law, but that did not stop Americans of courage from declaring the King's actions abusive and despotic and kicking the government out.

Joe Stack's eerie suicide screed rips the curtain open and reveals a bitter bile this country does not know what to do with.
Deplorable though he might be, Stack is not quite a "random bad apple." His act might be uncommon, but his jumbled populism is not. His crime is in no way excusable; but it spotlights a larger problem that both political and corporate elites like to caricature or dismiss: visceral populist anger. In turn, the likes of Stack often misdirect or poorly define the contours of
Stack may have suffered from mental illness, but he is also very much a symptom of this nation and the times.
We ignore - or dismiss as "lunatic" - his screed, suicide, and crime at our own risk.

Terry Hoskins owed $160,000 on a mortage on the home, which was valued at $350,000. Hoskins says the IRS placed liens on his business property and home after his brother, a former business partner, sued him. He says the bank then claimed his home as collateral and refused to accept a $170,000 buyout offer on the mortgage, telling him they could get more from it at auction.
He says he might bulldoze the commercial property next.

The authority of the federal government to collect its income tax depends upon the 16th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, the federal income tax amendment, which was allegedly ratified in 1913. After a year of extensive research, Bill Benson discovered that the 16th Amendment was not ratified by the required 3/4 of the states, but nevertheless Secretary of State Philander Knox fraudulently announced ratification.

UPDATE FEB 18, 2010 Cheney Admits to War Crimes, Media Yawns, Obama Turns the Other Cheek
On Sunday, in an exclusive interview with Jonathan Karl of ABC News' "This Week," Cheney proclaimed his love of torture, derided the Obama administration for outlawing the practice, and admitted that the Bush White House ordered Justice Department attorneys to fix the law around the administration's policy interests.
"I was a big supporter of waterboarding," Cheney told Karl, as if he were issuing a challenge to officials in the current administration, including President Barack Obama, who said flatly last year that waterboarding is torture, to take action against him. "I was a big supporter of the enhanced interrogation techniques..."
The former vice president's declaration closely follows admissions he made in December 2008, about a month before the Bush administration exited the White House, when he said he personally authorized the torture of 33 suspected terrorist detainees and approved the waterboarding of three so-called “high-value” prisoners.
“I signed off on it; others did, as well, too,” Cheney said in an interview with the right-wing Washington Times about the waterboarding, a drowning technique where a person is strapped to a board, his face covered with a cloth and then water is poured over it. It is a torture technique dating back at least to the Spanish Inquisition.
That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 61% disagree and say the government does not have the necessary consent. Eighteen percent (18%) of voters are not sure.
However, 63% of the Political Class think the government has the consent of the governed, but only six percent (6%) of those with Mainstream views agree.
Seventy-one percent (71%) of all voters now view the federal government as a special interest group, and 70% believe that the government and big business typically work together in ways that hurt consumers and investors.
That helps explain why 75% of voters are angry at the policies of the federal government, and 63% say it would be better for the country if most members of Congress are defeated this November. Just 27% believe their own representative in Congress is the best person for the job.
Another of Newsweek’s ridiculous “conspiracy theory” claims has been debunked after a prominent former Mexican foreign office minister called for a North American Union and a single unified currency, adding to the voluminous reams of evidence that confirm an EU-style integration is being developed for the Americas, a notion Newsweek dismissed as “discredited” in their feeble “Know Your Conspiracies” hit piece.

It is now time to stand for freedom individually and collectively, and make the sacrifices necessary in order to reclaim it. But it is easier than most of us know.
There are only 3 things we need in order to ensure success. We must be Pro-Active, Non Violent, and Massive in numbers. There are over 300 million of us, here, in this country, trying to survive under corporate fascism. It is time to stop the so-called "Wheels of Progress" from crushing our lives and our planet.
Those of us who realize just how much peril our country, our lands, our homes, our children, our descendants, and our future are in, need now to come together in peaceful, proactive non-compliance. The system is dependent upon our cooperation, and thrives on it daily. Those of us who know where we're headed, have a duty to defend our families and our freedoms, but we no longer have to die in order to do that. This time we use our numbers, and we use brains, not bullets." (link to the site where this was taken from).
If we are to prevent the evil forces that seem hellbent on destroying our American freedoms and way of life, we need to outline a list of basic reforms that the national total strike promotes. We have already seen how established politicians have tried to take over the Tea Party Movement. The following is a list that most Americans can agree with:
1. Abolish the Federal Reserve System and return control over
's money supply to Congress. In the almost 100 years since the privately owned (mostly foreign global bankers such as the Rothschilds) Federal Reserve System was established we have seen a series of booms and depressions/recessions and the erosion of our purchasing power due to the fraudulent fraction reserve banking system. We feel it is long since time to end this massive ripoff of the American taxpayer. America
2. Criminal trials of those really behind the 9/11 attacks on
including those officials who had prior knowledge and did nothing. We no longer believe in the official conspiracy theory of some 6'6" Arab sitting in a cave in Afghanistan causing the events of 9/11, including causing the entire US Air Force to stand down and violating the basic Laws of Physics. America
3. Immediate end to the Iraqi War and to the Afghanistan War; full public investigations into war profiteering in both wars.
4. No further wars without a formal Declaration of War by Congress.
5. End all paid and professional lobbying of Congress and the Executive branch of government.
6. Federal financing of federal election campaigns with no Political Action Committees, no spending on elections by any corporation or organization, no donations to political candidates in federal elections exceeding $1,000 per person.
7. No use of computer voting or vote counting in federal elections. all voting to be on paper ballots, with voters using indelible ink on a thumb after voting, all vote counting to be done in public at each voting place, with results publicly posted at each voting place immediately after counting.
8. No foreign lobbying of Congress and the Executive Branch of government including AIPAC.
9. Tariffs on foreign manufactured goods entering
and an abolishment of all tax breaks for off-shoring manufacturing and other corporate activities. America
10. Trust busting of the major banks and Wall Street firms and growing monopolies and concentrations of corporate ownership.
11. Trust busting of the concentration of news media ownership.
12. Criminal charges for those responsible for the economic crisis and economic restitution under RICO laws.
13. Criminal charges for those responsible for torture and other violations of the Bill of Rights of the US Constitution, no wiretapping without just cause and a specific individual court order, no viewing of phone/cell phone/Internet records without just cause and a specific court order.
14. No corporate or bank salary or bonus (or combination thereof) over $1 million per year.
15. A full return to Constitutional Law, including no signing statements, no Executive Orders, no federal usurping of state or private rights under the Constitution.
16. A end to the Patriot Act and all its provisions, an end to the full body scanning at airports.
17. No dual nationals in the Executive branch of government (such as the current White House Chief of Staff).
18. Full disclosure of Obama's birth certificate and the nation of the passport used by him to travel to when in school.

1972 Article Unearthed: ‘Worse than Hitler’: ‘Population Bomb’ author Paul Ehrlich suggested adding a forced sterilization agent to ’staple food’ and ‘water supply’
A 1972 article about “The Population Bomb” biologist Paul Ehrlich reveals a nascent environmental movement grappling with mass sterilization, climate fears, “international policy planning” and redistribution of wealth. The article reveals dramatic parallels to today’s modern environmental movement.
The article reported: "In 1969, [Ehrlich] said if voluntary birth reduction methods did not work a nation might have to resort to 'the addition of a temporary sterilant to staple food or to the water supply.' The proposal brought a charge from one newspaper critic that Ehrlich was 'worse than Hitler.'"
Ehrlich has also been in the news recently about a 1977 book he co-authored with President Obama's science czar John Holdren titled “Ecoscience: Population, Resources, Environment." The book called for a 'Comprehensive Planetary Regime could control development, distribution of all natural resources.' Also See: White House Science Adviser Holdren and Ehrlich Advocated 'De-Development' of the United States]
[Climate Depot's Editor's Note: It appears that NASA's James Hansen is following the same faith based beliefs as Ehrlich: See: Time for Meds? NASA scientist James Hansen endorses book which calls for 'ridding the world of Industrial Civilization' – Hansen declares author 'has it right...the system is the problem' – Jan. 22, 2010 - Book proposes 'razing cities to the ground, blowing up dams and switching off the greenhouse gas emissions machine']
The 1972 article also quoted Ehrlich foreshadowing today's calls for “global governance” to save the Earth
Ehrlich's views on the human race now permeate many of today's global warming and environmental activists. Below is a very small sampling:
Ehlich's call for limiting growth and “de-developing” are also staples of today's global warming and environmental movement. See:

U.S. government wants farmers to spread toxic powder from coal plant scrubbers on their food crop fields
The federal government is pushing farmers to use a toxic byproduct of the coal burning industry to fertilize and loosen the soil in their crop fields. Initiated under the Bush administration as a beneficial use for the substance, efforts by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) in conjunction with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) continue to advocate for the widespread use of synthetic gypsum in agriculture.
Called flue gas desulfurization gypsum, or FGD gypsum, this synthetic powder is produced by coal plant "scrubbers" that remove sulfur dioxide from plant emissions. Sulfur dioxide is the chemical that causes acid rain to occur.
According to the EPA, the mercury contained in FGD gypsum does not affect plants and runoff into water supplies at "significant" levels.

The Dalai Lama confessed to receive CIA funds in their revolutionary attempts to split from China. As US and Israel lying rhetoric for war with Iran escalate and are echoed by US corporate media, as Iran is considered a main source of oil for China, as WW3 is a real threat given that WW2 sprung from a series of smaller occupations cumulating with a false flag attack on Poland and WW1 sprung from a single political assassination in a context of competing empires, the “chess masters” behind the scenes of politics might have more in mind than a simple visit between President Obama and an exiled religious feudal-system divine monarch (and here).
If war will be initiated, a false flag attack to kill Americans and blamed on Iran is a likely scenario with documented historical use and high-level government discussion of its application.

The U.S. Agency for International Development has awarded another lucrative no-bid contract, Fox News has learned -- this time to a "politically connected" lobbyist and high-profile friend of former President Bill Clinton.
The U.S. Agency for International Development has awarded another lucrative no-bid contract, Fox News has learned -- this time to a "politically connected" lobbyist and high-profile friend of former President Bill Clinton.
This marks the second no-bid contract the agency has been found to have awarded since the start of the year, despite a long history of vows by President Obama to crack down on the practice. The first, awarded on Jan. 4 and worth nearly $25 million, was steered to a firm owned by a donor to the Obama presidential campaign, for legal work in
USAID's latest no-bid contract, worth close to $100,000, was awarded on Jan. 18 to the GlobalOptions Group for work in earthquake-stricken Haiti, where Clinton is the U.N. special envoy and is helping to lead private fundraising efforts.
Described as an "integrated risk management" firm, GlobalOptions is headquartered in

Google has sensationally banned all sales through its shopping merchant of a DVD critical of the Obama administration under the terms of its program policy which bars any material deemed to be “advocating against a protected group”. Apparently, Google considers the government to be a “protected group,” and immune from criticism.

I have to wonder if
L’institut Reut a demandé au gouvernement israélien de consacrer des ressources substantielles pour « attaquer » voire "saboter" ce mouvement de manière criminelle dans ce que Reut appelle, les "pôles" internationaux de Londres, Madrid, Toronto, la baie de San Francisco et au-delà.
D’après les analyses de l’institut Reut, la doctrine stratégique israélienne traditionnelle - considérant que les menaces pour l’existence de l’État doivent être traitées par des moyens principalement militaires et ainsi combattues - est terriblement dépassée. Israël est plutôt confronté aujourd’hui à la double menace d’un "réseau de résistance" et "d’un réseau de délégitimisation."
("The Delegitimization Challenge : Creating a Political Firewall, Reut Institute, 14 février 2010).
En outre, le "réseau de résistance", vise prétendument à provoquer l’"implosion" politique d’Israël — à la façon de l’Afrique du Sud, de l’Allemagne de l’Est ou de l’Union soviétique — plutôt que d’obtenir une défaite militaire par un affrontement direct sur le champ de bataille.
Au niveau de base, l’analyse de Reut représente un progrès par rapport aux couches plus primitives et jusqu’ici dominantes de la pensée stratégique israélienne ; elle montre que l’on comprend, comme je l’ai dit dans mon discours à Hampshire, que "le sionisme ne peut pas simplement bombarder, enlever, assassiner, expulser, démolir, coloniser, mentir et arriver à se faire légitimer et accepter."
Mais ce qui sous-tend l’analyse de l’institut Reut est son incapacité totale à démêler les causes et les effets. Elle semble supposer que l’érosion spectaculaire de la réputation internationale d’Israël depuis ses guerres contre le Liban en 2006 et contre Gaza en 2009 est le résultat des prouesses du" réseau de délégitimisation" auquel il impute des objectifs totalement infâmes , sournois et malsains — à savoir, la "destruction d’Israël."
Elle blâme les "délégitimateurs" et les "résistants" de l’échec de la solution à deux Etats sans tenir compte de l’impitoyable et inexorable colonisation israélienne— appuyée par pratiquement tous les organes de l’État — délibérée et destinée à rendre impossible le retrait israélien de Cisjordanie.
L’analyse n’a jamais considéré, un seul instant, que l’escalade des critiques visant les actions israéliennes pourrait être justifiée, ou que ceux qui viennent gonfler les rangs des gens qui sont prêts à consacrer leur temps et leurs efforts pour s’opposer aux actions d’Israël puissent être motivés par une indignation sincère et le désir de voir se concrétiser la justice, l’égalité et la fin des effusions de sang. En d’autres mots, Israël est en train de se délégitimer lui-même.
Reut n’a pas recommandé au cabinet israélien — qui a récemment tenu une session extraordinaire afin d’entendre un exposé des conclusions du groupe de réflexion — qu’Israël change effectivement son comportement envers les Palestiniens et les Libanais.
Au lieu de cela, Reut recommande au gouvernement israélien une contre-offensive agressive et éventuellement criminelle. Dans sa présentation powerpoint faite à la récente Conférence d’Herzliya sur la sécurité nationale israélienne, Grinstein invite effectivement les "services de renseignement " israéliens à se concentrer sur les « pôles » nommés ou non du" réseau de délégitimisation " et d’ "attaquer les catalyseurs" de ce réseau. Dans son document "The Delegitimization Challenge : Creating a Political Firewall " Reut recommande qu’ "Israël sabote les catalyseurs du réseau ».
L’utilisation du mot "sabotage" est particulièrement frappante et devrait attirer l’attention des gouvernements, des services juridiques et des directeurs d’université préoccupés par la sécurité et la protection de leurs étudiants et de leurs citoyens. La seule définition de "sabotage" dans le droit des USA le qualifie d’acte de guerre au même titre que la trahison lorsque qu’il est mené contre les USA. En outre, dans l’usage courant, l’American Heritage Dictionary définit le sabotage comme "un acte déloyal visant à faire échouer ou à entraver une cause ou un projet ; subversion délibérée." Il est difficile d’imaginer une utilisation légitime de ce terme dans un contexte politique ou dans des campagnes de sensibilisation.
À tout le moins, Reut semble demander aux services d’espionnage israéliens de mener des actions clandestines pour s’ingérer dans l’exercice de la liberté d’expression, d’association et de soutien, aux USA, au Canada et dans les pays de l’Union européenne, et éventuellement pour nuire à des personnes et des organisations. Ces mises en garde concernant les intentions éventuelles d’Israël — surtout à la lumière de sa longue histoire d’activités criminelles sur sol étranger — ne devraient pas être prises à la légère.
L’Institute Reut, basé à Tel-Aviv, lève un montant important de fonds exonérés d’impôts aux USA par le biais de sa branche sans but lucratif appelée "Les Amis étasuniens de l’Institut Reut" (AFRI). Selon ses documents publics, l’AFRI a envoyé près de 2 millions de dollars à l’Institut Reut en 2006 et 2007.
Outre une campagne internationale de sabotage sous les auspices de l’État, Reut a également recommandé une politique "douce". Celle-ci fait appel spécifiquement à la hasbara, ou propagande d’Etat, pour donner une image verte d’Israël, refuge high-tech des technologies environnementales et des produits culturels de haut niveau — ce qu’il appelle la "marque Israël."
D’autres éléments comprennent "le maintien de milliers de relations personnelles avec des élites et des personnes influentes du monde politique, culturel, dans celui des médias et de la sécurité à travers le monde et la « mise à contribution » encore plus étroite à sa cause « des communautés juives et israéliennes de la diaspora ». Il a même souligné qu’Israël devrait utiliser "l’aide internationale" pour renforcer son image (son incursion de pure forme dans le tremblement de terre d’Haïti illustre cette tactique).
Le point commun de ces stratégies est qu’elles visent à décourager, retarder et détourner l’attention de la question fondamentale : tout en se prétendant un État libéral et démocratique, Israël est une ethnocratie ultranationaliste qui s’appuie sur la répression violente des droits les plus fondamentaux de millions de Palestiniens
Lettre à envoyer aux parle-ment-taires contre l'adoption d'une nouvelle loi qui ferait de nous tous des criminels. (Toutes les adresses email des représentants s'y trouvent.)
"Je tiens à attirer votre attention sur un projet de loi à l'étude, parrainé par un comité parlementaire fédéral (le CPCCA qui veut dire Canadian Parliamentary Coalition to Combat Antisemitism) qui, si adopté, fera de nous tous des criminels potentiels. Il sera alors interdit de critiquer la politique et les actions d’un gouvernement étranger particulier sous peine d’être accusé d’incitation à la haine. Bref, on pourra critiquer la politique de tous les pays du monde sauf un : Israël. (Voir le document en anglais. (http://www.socialistproject.ca/bullet/310.php)
C’est Irwin Cotler, ancien ministre de la justice, reconnu pour défendre inconditionnellement la violation des droits humains des Palestiniens par l’armée israélienne et opposant farouche au rapport Goldstone (qui décrit dans les détails les crimes de guerre de l’armée d’Israël dans son offensive illégale contre Gaza) bref, c’est notre ancien ministre de la justice qui pilote le projet de loi. Pas mal pour un expert en droit international et en droits humains… Cherchez l’erreur.
À la solde de Maître Cotler sur ce comité, on retrouve le ministre de l’immigration, Jason Kenney, un catholique-sioniste intégriste dont les discours et les gestes sont des plus alarmants. (Voir le document ci-dessus cité).
La logique de ces défenseurs du droit international est simple : critiques de la politique israélienne = antisémitisme, donc incitation à la haine raciale. Les effets de cette loi ? Selon Joanne Naiman, auteure du document, tous les organismes militant pour la paix et la justice au Proche-Orient seront muselés par crainte d’ennuis judiciaires. Et le projet de loi, selon elle, créera de l’antisémitisme en amalgamant Judaïsme et Sionisme.
Il me semble que votre parti devrait s'opposer vigoureusement à ce projet de loi anti-démocratique. Le droit d'expression est le fondement d'une société démocratique. Et le respect du droit international doit être la mesure du bien fondé d'une politique étrangère. Et non pas la propagande d'un groupe de pression émanant d'un pays étranger.
En passant, on peut se demander si les milliers d’opposants à l’occupation israélienne, Juifs et Israéliens, seront aussi accusés d’anti-sémitisme. Chomsky, Finkelstein, Hamira Hass, Uri Avnery, Ilan Pappe, Gideon Levy, Shlomi Eldar, Sharon Weil, Pollaco de Menasces et les quelques 500 signataires israéliens d’une pétition pour amener l’état hébreu à respecter le droit international, tous ces dissidents seraient coupables d’incitation à la haine raciale ? Ce projet est tellement odieux qu'il aura sûrement un effet boomerang contraire. À nous d'en informer le public."

The Treasury Department also demanded more methyl alcohol be added—up to 10 percent of total product. It was the last that proved most deadly.

It's being called the largest research fraud in medical history. Dr. Scott Reuben, a former member of Pfizer's speakers' bureau, has agreed to plead guilty to faking dozens of research studies that were published in medical journals.
Now being reported across the mainstream media is the fact that Dr. Reuben accepted a $75,000 grant from Pfizer to study Celebrex in 2005. His research, which was published in a medical journal, has since been quoted by hundreds of other doctors and researchers as "proof" that Celebrex helped reduce pain during post-surgical recovery. There's only one problem with all this: No patients were ever enrolled in the study!
Dr. Scott Reuben, it turns out, faked the entire study and got it published anyway.
There is no evidence to support the contention that the influenza vaccine administered to the over 65s is of any more use than opening the windows and washing hands, a new study from the Cochrane Collaboration claims, according to a report in the Svenska Dagbladet newspaper.
The Cochrane Collaboration, an international not-for-profit organization providing up-to-date information about the effects of health care, has compiled data from 40 flu seasons worldwide.
The institute has concluded from the studies that there is no clear evidence to suggest that the flu jab offers any more protection than cheaper, hygiene-based methods such as hand-washing.
"Our analysis is compiled using millions of data from 40 seasons worldwide. What we have seen is that the influenza vaccine can at best have a very small effect," said Thomas Jefferson, one of the authors of the report, to the newspaper.
