Polish authorities clearly weren't taking any chances as Israeli citizen Uri Brodsky, implicated in the Dubai assassination, was escorted into court in Warsaw, Poland.
US investigators say American companies paid money to the suspects behind the Israeli-masterminded assassination of a senior Hamas official.

American cyberspace companies have been named among the firms that transferred money to the alleged hitmen behind the targeted killing of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh -- the co-founder of the Hamas resistance movement's armed wing, known as the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades - on January 20 The Wall Street Journal reported Saturday.

CCTV camera footage, caught in a Dubai hotel, where the operation took place, has led the emirate's police to put the names of more than two dozen suspects on the international wanted list.

The Dubai police have identified 13 US-issued debit-card accounts used by the suspects into which money was deposited.

Israeli police officers remove the shell of a "Grad rocket" (homemade devices that contain no explosives) allegedly fired by "unknown militants" from the Gaza Strip and landed in the southern city of Ashkelon, 30 Jul 2010
A military official told Ynet he did not believe Hamas had fired the Grad rocket that exploded in Ashkelon Friday morning, though it remains unclear who was responsible.

"Hamas still wants to maintain the status quo in the Strip," he said. "It continues to grow stronger, but is deterred by the IDF and doesn't want to face a conflict."

The Plot Against Art

Part 1

Waterhouse, The Lady of Shalott, 1888.

Art as it used to be, when painters knew how to paint. This would now be considered kitsch.
"Never before have so few been in a position to make fools, maniacs or criminals of so many."
HG Wells, The Shape of Things to Come.

I'll begin with a confession: I am a failed artist. Ever since I can remember, I have wanted to paint. The only thing that stopped me was lack of talent. The first time I did a self-portrait, checking with the mirror in my bedroom to see how I was getting on, my mother put an abrupt end to my artistic ambitions by exclaiming, "Gosh, what a cute little chimp!"

It was a rude awakening for a nine-year-old artist.

About a decade later, I asked myself was art was all about. One day I found this sentence in a biography of Burne-Jones, and I jotted it down in my diary and pondered it for a day or two, "I mean by a picture a beautiful romantic dream of something that never was, never will be - in a better light than any light that ever shone - in a land no one can define or remember, only desire - and from forms divinely beautiful."

Mossad, MI6 and Microbiology: The Secret World of Dr David Kelly

Murdered: Forensic experts at work in the Oxfordshire woods where Dr Kelly's body was found in 2003
[with editorial comments by Rowena Thursby]

Dr. David Kelly, the top British microbiologist and whistleblower, had close links to the dark world of secret intelligence.

Dr. Kelly was not employed by MI5 or MI6 - or any other intelligence service. But He enjoyed an unique access to all the world's top spy agencies. In Britain, France, Germany, North America, Japan and Australia: they all consulted him.

Into his office - room number 2/35 - in the Ministry of Defence Proliferation and Arms Control Secretariat in London, came emails and phone calls asking him for his help.

More than any scientist he knew about types and strains of micro-organisms, numbers of shells and aerial bombs filled with botulinum toxin. He knew the latest figures for the production of bio-weapons material in China, the gallons of growth material in Syria, Pakistan - and which countries had sold the material.

Almost uniquely, he kept a large amount of his secret data in his study at home. There on his desktop computer, were tens of thousands of secret documents and photographs.

British government conducted hundreds of biological and chemical warfare experiments on unsuspecting public

Screenshot from the movie V for Vendetta where the British government released a virus that killed thousands of its own people, thereby enabling it to enact strict quarantines and ultimately force totalitarianism on the population. Paranoid fantasy? Apparently not.
In the 50s and 60s, British government scientists carried out secret trials to find out the likely effects of a biological attack. The results, some never published before, reveal how shockingly vulnerable the capital is to an anthrax attack.

It was lunchtime on London's Northern line. Deep underground, passengers were getting on and off the tube trains as normal. Two men boarded a train at Colliers Wood in south London. As the train gathered speed towards its next stop, Tooting Broadway, one of them got up from his seat and dropped a small carton of face powder out of the window. He could have been idly throwing away litter.

As the train sped on, the carton hit the tracks and burst. Out spewed millions of tiny spores, which began to spread throughout the dark tunnels. Dust swabs taken after three days and two weeks showed that the spores had spread as far up the line as Camden Town station in north London, 10 miles away.

This really happened. But the two men weren't terrorists but government scientists. And the spores weren't anthrax spores, but a harmless micro-organism designed to mimic clandestine sabotage with anthrax. This was an official experiment in 1963, and it showed how easily saboteurs could inflict a potentially devastating attack on Britain's capital.

Ethnic specific weapons: The real story behind the murder of Dr David Kelly

David Kelly: The man who knew too much

Comment: Damning new evidence came to light last month that clearly implicates the Blair government in covering-up the murder of British scientist Dr. David Kelly. And this month it was announced that the UK's Attorney General would investigate a dossier submitted by a former KGB agent, now resident in the UK, detailing how the scientist was "exterminated in a planned assassination."

So can we expect the British government to overturn the 70 year timelock it placed on files related to Kelly's postmortem? Unlikely. When SOTT.net pulled on the threads related to his murder several years ago, it unravelled a series of connections that made plain why this man had to be silenced and why his murder had to be covered up.

With the new British government acknowledging that the case is far from closed, it seems timely to revisit the dark activities unearthed by Kelly's death.


Ethnic Weapons

We posted a story on SOTT.net that David Kelly was involved with ultra secret work at Israel's Institute for Biological Research.

A report on November 15, 1998 by the Sunday Times suggests that this Institute "is working on a biological weapon that would harm Arabs but not Jews".
Israel planning 'ethnic' bomb as Saddam caves in

London Sunday Times
November 15 1998


Israel is working on a biological weapon that would harm Arabs but not Jews, according to Israeli military and western intelligence sources. The weapon, targeting victims by ethnic origin, is seen as Israel's response to Iraq's threat of chemical and biological attacks.

A scientist there said the task was hugely complicated because both Arabs and Jews are of Semitic origin. But he added: "They have, however, succeeded in pinpointing a particular characteristic in the genetic profile of certain Arab communities, particularly the Iraqi people."

Offering to Aid Talks, U.S. Challenges China on Disputed Islands

Opening a new source of potential friction with China, the Obama administration said Friday that it would step into a tangled dispute between China and its smaller Asian neighbors over a string of strategically significant islands in the South China Sea.

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, speaking at an Asian regional security meeting in Vietnam, stressed that the United States remained neutral on which regional countries had stronger territorial claims to the islands. But she said that the United States had an interest in preserving free shipping in the area and that it would be willing to facilitate multilateral talks on the issue.

Though presented as an offer to help ease tensions, the stance amounts to a sharp rebuke to China. Beijing has insisted for years that all the islands belong to China and that any disputes should be resolved by China. In March, senior Chinese officials pointedly warned their American counterparts that they would brook no interference in the South China Sea, which they called part of the "core interest" of sovereignty.

Why 'Israelis' Danced on 911

A Boeing 757 is supposed to have squeezed through that hole then vaporized
It was stated recently on Facebook that investigating 911 is a waste of time, that nothing was 'likely to be proven'. That's obvious! It is the purpose of a cover up to make of 'investigations' a 'waste of time'. On this point, whomever perpetrated 911 won when Bush made of the pursuit of justice a 'waste of time'.

The lesson learned is that if you are sufficiently rich and/or powerful, you can subvert justice, the rule of law, the truth! Our nation is lost if truth is abandoned because the pursuit of it is a 'waste of time'. In such a society, no one is free; everything is based upon a lie and, based upon a lie, is unjust. Such a society is a police state, at best a tyranny of an uninformed 'majority'! The 'establishment' is not appalled by widespread ignorance; it depends upon it and promotes it. Such a society is finished! The U.S. will fall ignominiously as did Rome of its folly, arrogance and incompetence.

Only the guilty are sufficiently motivated to cover up a crime. Just as obvious is the corollary: the innocent have nothing to cover up! If Bush covered up and/or obstructed in any way the investigation of the crime of 911, then he is guilty of acts of obstruction of justice intended to hide the truth in ways that would protect him or his 'friends' or both! 'Obstruction of justice' was one of several serious allegations against Richard Nixon, leading to articles of impeachment, eventually his ignominious resignation.

China Now World's Biggest Energy User

China overtook the US last year to become the world's biggest energy user, the International Energy Agency revealed on Monday.

Beijing's new status is expected to make it even more influential in global energy markets, in determining prices and how it is used.

China clinched the top slot more quickly than had been expected because the US has over the past decade far outpaced China in using energy more efficiently. On a per capita basis, the US still uses far more energy than China and remains less efficient than Europe.

Iran denies stoning claims, more anti-Iranian propaganda

Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani
Iran's Embassy in London has denied claims by media and human rights groups that the country's judiciary has sentenced a woman to death by stoning.

The embassy said in a statement that Iran's judicial officials have rejected reports that Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani will be stoned to death.

"According to information from relevant judicial authorities in Iran, she will not be executed by stoning punishment," the embassy said in the statement carried by The Guardian.

The statement also says such a punishment has not been included in the draft Islamic Penal Code being deliberated in the Iranian Parliament.

Comment: This story was first leaked by Radio Farda, the Iranian branch of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, a CIA propaganda mill, in conjuction with The Media Line, a Zionist propaganda mill. This Jerusalem Post article breached the story of the non-stoning to the mainstream media on June 30.
