Ariel Sharon: The legacy of a psychopath

In a display of political and diplomatic hypocrisy, most western leaders praised the late Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon for his transformation from a fierce fighter for Israel to a man who took initiatives to make peace with the Palestinians.

Israeli President Shimon Peres described him as a "brave military leader", while Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt tweeted that Sharon was "a great leader of Israel. A brilliant military commander, but also a wise statesman seeing the necessity of peace". As Sharon had been marketed long ago as a military "hero", most western newspapers couldn't avoid reminding readers of his responsibility for the massacre of Sabra and Shatila following Israel's invasion of Lebanon in 1982. And the Israeli newspaper, Jerusalem Post, said on January 12 that "his escapades earned him simultaneous adulation and criticism, most notably from prime minister David Ben-Gurion".

"Escapades" is a very polite euphemism for describing Sharon's record as a military man because he, like many Israelis, had one definition of victory: "The number of their victims." That's why Sharon was always associated with massacres and mass killings. In 1948, he started his career through a gruesome massacre in the town of Lydda (Al Lid) that took the lives of 426 Palestinians who were caught up in a mosque. And in 1953, he was a major heading the special unit "101" and carried out another massacre in the village of Qibya in the West Bank, which claimed the lives of 170 Palestinian civilians. It wasn't a mistake but a strict implementation of a military order encapsulated in document No. 207/56/644 of the Israeli army archive: "Implement the demolition and inflict blows paramount in lives in order to push the villagers to flee their homes".


Best of the Web: America's real welfare queens

No only do Zombie Corporations and Zombie Banks not actually produce anything useful for the real economy, they just take and take and take from it...
When Republicans talk about "welfare queens," they're really talking about their buddies in big banks, Big Oil, and giant transnational corporations. It's time to cut off the corporate welfare pipeline, and use those billions of dollars to help our economy recover, and to help those Americans who need it the most.

The Shock Doctrine: Syria's heritage in ruins: before-and-after pictures‏

They were sleepy tree-lined boulevards where people lived and worked, time-worn markets where they came to trade and exquisitely detailed mosques where, throughout the ages, they prayed.

All now stand in ruins, ravaged by a war that is not only killing generations of Syrians but also eradicating all around them, including sites that have stood since the dawn of civilisation. Across Syria, where a seemingly unstoppable war is about to enter a third year, a heritage built over 5,000 years or more is being steadily buried under rubble.

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) vs. Syria's "moderate" Al Qaeda terrorists

The Western media has tacitly acknowledged, faced with overwhelming evidence, that the opposition rebels have not only committed countless atrocities, they were also behind the chemical weapons attack of August 21.

In the wake of these tragic events, a new dribble of media disinformation is unfolding.

The evolving media narrative - which coincides in a timely fashion with the Geneva 2 Peace Conference - consists in distinguishing between two categories of Al Qaeda affiliated rebel organizations.

The story runs roughly as follows:
  • There are moderate Al Qaeda rebels ("good guy Jihadists") including those affiliated to Al Nusrah, which are now part of the Western supported moderate Islamic Front. The latter is now openly supported and financed by the US and its allies.
  • And then there are the so-called extremists associated with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).


Gladio B in Egypt: Car bomb not a suicide bomber - video

Isn't it funny that just as soon as world public opinion was turning so drastically against the illegal dictatorship in Egypt for killing so many protesters and arresting so many members of the leading opposition party (Muslim Brotherhood), suddenly there is a bombing spree, blamed on the Brotherhood, which promises to justify all the illegal activities of the current junta in power? Anyone remember what Operation Gladio was? Bombings in various countries across Europe carried out by far right fascist organizations and blamed on lefties to justify all kinds of nifty brutality.

Comment: This is the case with most if not all 'suicide bombings'. They're military intelligence operations where someone willingly, or under coercion, takes part in planting explosives that are then detonated remotely or with a timer.

Snowden to German TV: NSA is after industrial spying

The NSA agency is not preoccupied solely with national security, but also spies on foreign industrial entities in US business interests, former American intelligence contractor, Edward Snowden, has revealed in an interview to German TV.

Edward Snowden chose the German ARD broadcaster to make his first TV interview ever since he became a whistleblower. The interview was made in strict secrecy in an unspecified location in Russia, where Snowden is currently living under temporary asylum.

"There is no question that the US is engaged in economic spying," said Snowden.

If an industrial giant like Siemens has something that the NSA believes "would be beneficial to the national interests, not the national security, of the United States, they will go after that information and they'll take it," the whistleblower said, giving an example.


Snowden is in cahoots with evil space aliens, or maybe orcs and trolls, or maybe even ... Satan!

I have it on no authority that Edward Snowden is in cahoots with evil space aliens, or maybe orcs and trolls, or maybe even ... Satan itself! I'm sure this is bad, although to be honest, I'm not sure what exactly cahoots might be, or how one gets into them or out of them. But the important thing is that I can put the word "Snowden" into a sentence with something that the target audience generally considers Very Bad, because if you can't actually assassinate someone, character assassination will have to suffice!

Now, I am offering no evidence for my allegation, unless you count my fevered imagination, but that at least puts me in the exalted company of Rep. Mike Rogers (R-MI), who last weekend alleged that Snowden is Up To No Good with Russia! Which was particularly insightful of Rogers, given that he last summer was hinting that Snowden was Up To No Good with China, which makes perfectly logical sense, if your sense of logic includes the hallucination that China would send an invaluable espionage asset to Russia.

Comment: Distracting us away from the issues that matter, their lies and how they confiscate inches of our freedoms and rights every minute, is one of the PTB's stronger weapons against us. How can we overcome it? By paying attention to their actions, not their words.

More than 400 people demonstrated Saturday in Kiryat Tivon, a town in the Haifa District of Israel, in protest against the intent to dismiss civics teacher Adam Verta, after one of his students complained to the education minister that Verta voiced "extreme leftist views" in his classes.

The protesters demonstrated both against the silencing of voices and against the hearing procedure which they said was "unfair."

Comment: According to the Hebrew version of the article, Verta also said that IDF is cruel and acts with an unprecedented violence. He also said that he is indeed ashamed of his country and his army, and that this land belongs to Palestinians, and Israelis shouldn't be here.

It appears that Israel's long term indoctrination and brainwashing of its citizens would suffer a serious blow, if a person of conscience like Verta would be allowed to spread the truth uninterrupted and unpunished. But it's also good that he doesn't stand alone, and there are still a few Israelis, who disagree with murderous ways of Nazi Israel.

(The guy seen with John McCain is a pure bred Operation Gladio supporter. Thailand, Ukraine, Turkey, Egypt... it's Gladio B and this guy is a perfect example of the kinds of democracies our country backs across the world. )
"In the majority of his motions he opposed the introduction of the Russian language as the second official state language, proposed recognition of the fighting role of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists and Ukrainian Insurgent Army during World War II, called for the lustration of former communist officials, security service officers and undercover agents, and demanded the prohibition of communist ideology."
When left-wing groups tried to join the protests they were attacked and beaten by fascists. Svoboda are leading ideologically now. Fascism is like a fashion now, with more and more people getting involved." . Sergey Kirichuk

Sowing the wind: NSA sets global trend for invasive state snooping

The United States' dragnet surveillance programs have set a dangerous precedent, encouraging other states to bolster their own snooping capabilities and engage in censorship under the guise of security, Human Rights Watch warned in its annual report.

"The importance of privacy, a right we often take for granted, was thrown into sharp relief in 2013 by the steady stream of revelations from United States government files released by former National Security Agency (NSA) contractor Edward Snowden," the New York-based group wrote in its 24th annual review of human rights practices around the globe.

"These revelations, supported by highly classified documents, showed the US, the UK, and other governments engaged in global indiscriminate data interception, largely unchecked by any meaningful legal constraint or oversight, without regard for the rights of millions of people who were not suspected of wrongdoing," the report said.

The report warns that the ease with which information is disseminated in the digital age has been matched by a commensurate growth in unchecked surveillance capabilities.
