Defying Israeli Genocide at Home (in School) And Abroad (in Court)

Although ignored by much of the Western media, a battle which echoes the biblical story of David and Goliath is taking place in The Hague. In the modern-day version, young David is personified by a soft-spoken 15-year-old girl named Amira Alqerem. Goliath takes the form of the world's fourth most powerful, nuclear-armed military state: Israel. At stake is victims' rights the world over and the international commitment to "never again." It is this commitment - as well as to international law, as laid down in the Fourth Geneva Conventions and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights - that Amira is asking the International Criminal Court (ICC) to recognize and uphold.

For Daring To Resist Establishment Science: 1000 arrested in Copenhagen

The photographs below were sent in today from a SOTT.net correspondent at the Climate Summit in Copenhagen who witnessed local police in riot gear mass-arrest hundreds of demonstrators, apparently at random, force them to sit hand-cuffed with legs apart in chain-gang formation on the cold hard street for up to four hours at a time. The demonstrators were offered no water or medical attention and many were left with no choice but to urinate in their clothes.

Danish police numbered today's demonstration at the Climate Summit in Copenhagen at 30,000 people, but Danish TV tripled that figure to at least 100,000.

The British Telegraph reported that 21 people were arrested "after some 300 youths, many wearing black and with their faces covered, went on the rampage in the heart of the city." If recent experience at the G20 demonstrations in London and Pittsburgh is anything to go by, we naturally wonder if they were incited to serve as a distraction and justify a heavy-handed police response. When asked what the "youths" were arrested for, a police spokesman said that wearing a mask on your face was illegal under Danish law.

In fact, around 700 people were arrested and humiliated in the freezing temperatures:

Time magazine cover, April 1977
The First Global Revolution, A Report by the Council of the Club of Rome (King, Schneider 1991):
"The need for enemies seems to be a common historical factor. Some states have striven to overcome domestic failure and internal contradictions by blaming external enemies. The ploy of finding a scapegoat is as old as mankind itself - when things become too difficult at home, divert attention to adventure abroad. Bring the divided nation together to face an outside enemy, either a real one, or else one invented for the purpose." (p.71)

The common enemy of humanity is Man

"In searching for a common enemy against whom we can unite, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like, would fit the bill. In their totality and their interactions these phenomena do constitute a common threat which must be confronted by everyone together. But in designating these dangers as the enemy, we fall into the trap, which we have already warned readers about, namely mistaking symptoms for causes. All these dangers are caused by human intervention in natural processes, and it is only through changed attitudes and behaviour that they can be overcome. The real enemy then is humanity itself." (p.75)
Against The Tide - A Critical Review by Scientists of How Physics and Astronomy Get Done, W. Kundt, 2008:
The term 'Gold Effect' was coined by Raymond Lyttleton in [1981], after a conversation with [Austrian astrophysicist Thomas Gold] during which Gold had explained how a mere unqualified belief can occasionally be converted into a generally accepted scientific theory - a dogma - through the screening action of refereed literature, of meetings planned by scientific organizing committees, and through the distribution of funds controlled by 'club opinions'.

The Kercher Trial: Amanda Knox 'snared by her lust and lies'

Meredith Kercher
For 11 months Amanda Knox remained impassive as she sat in a Perugia courtroom, assailed by the accusations of prosecutors and a series of harrowing crime-scene photographs and films.

Even when she was sentenced to 26 years in prison for murdering the 21-year-old British exchange student Meredith Kercher, she bowed her head and wept noiselessly, burying her head in her lawyer's chest.

It was only as she was leaving the courtroom just after midnight yesterday morning and was being led back to the prison van by armed guards that she truly cracked. "No, no, no!" she shouted in desperation.

After 12 hours of deliberations with a colleague and six jurors, Judge Giancarlo Massei read the verdict in a low monotone in the frescoed courtroom in the picturesque hilltop city of Perugia in central Italy.

Knox arriving at court to hear the verdict.
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was today urged to investigate campaigners' claims that Amanda Knox may have been the victim of a miscarriage of justice.

The American is beginning a 26-year jail sentence after she convicted of murdering British student Meredith Kercher.

But U.S. senator Maria Cantwell said there were 'serious questions about the Italian justice system' and claimed there had been an anti-American element at the trial.

She said: 'I am in contact with the U.S. Ambassador to Italy and have been since the time of Ms. Knox's arrest. I will be conveying my concerns to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.'

Amanda Knox gets 26 years for sex murder of student

Amanda Knox awaited the verdict in her trial in Italy last night
An Italian jury last night convicted Amanda Knox of murder. The 22-year-old American was sentenced to 26 years in prison.

Knox and former lover Raffaele Sollecito were found guilty of the murder of British student Meredith Kercher.

Knox and Italian Sollecito (25) killed the 21-year-old Ms Kercher in what began as an extreme sex game and ended with Sollecito holding her down while Knox cut her throat with a six-inch kitchen knife.

They committed the killing in Perugia, Italy, with small-time drug dealer Rudy Guede, 22, who was jailed for murder and sexual violence last October for 30 years.

Knox bowed her head and burst into tears as the verdict was read out.

Comment: What is clear is that this was a case of railroading.

GLD ETF Warning, Tungsten Filled Fake Gold Bars

"Gold Finger - A New Take On Operation Grand Slam With A Tungsten Twist"

I've already reported on irregular physical gold settlements which occurred in London, England back in the first week of October, 2009. Specifically, these settlements involved the intermediation of at least one Central Bank [The Bank of England] to resolve allocated settlements on behalf of J.P. Morgan and Deutsche Bank - who DID NOT have the gold bullion that they had sold short and were contracted to deliver. At the same time I reported on two other unusual occurrences:

1] - irregularities in the publication of the gold ETF - GLD's bar list from Sept. 25 - Oct.14 where the length of the bar list went from 1,381 pages to under 200 pages and then back up to 800 or so pages.

2] - reports of 400 oz. "good delivery" bricks of gold found gutted and filled with tungsten within the confines of LBMA approved vaults in Hong Kong.

Comment: Why, we wouldn't believe these allegations for all the tungsten in Fort Knox. Or would we?

Could it be? Salted gold bars being held as genuine the world around? GLD really a diversion from holding legitimate hard assets? The Fed caught lying (the Fed lying? Gasp!) about gold swaps?

Another confirmation of the wisdom:

"Believe nothing,
Verify everything,
Think with a hammer."

Rumbled! Mossad gaffe reveals 'Iran ship photos' were forged

Iran says labels reading 'Ministry of Sepah', a body that no longer exists, are enough to prove that the photos released by Israel are forged.
After Israel released photos it said proved that a huge shipment of weapons for Hezbollah came from Tehran, Iranian news agencies publish evidence showing that the photos are forged.

Israeli naval sources recently claimed that they found a large cache of Iranian-made arms when they stormed a vessel near Cyprus in the Mediterranean Sea.

They claimed that the ship was heading for the Hezbollah resistance movement, either in Lebanon or Syria.

Iran instantly dismissed the claims, issuing a statement with which it condemned Israel's many acts of piracy in international waters.

A woman who suspected her 68-year-old husband of propositioning teenagers on the internet posed as a schoolgirl to lure him into a trap.

Cheryl Roberts, 61, created a false profile and pretended to be 14 as she exchanged intimate messages with him in a chat room. After he asked her for sex she reported him to the police.

David Roberts found out that he had been making advances to his own wife only after being arrested. He admitted that he had hoped to have sex with the "schoolgirl".

On Wednesday he was ordered to attend a programme for sex offenders as part of a three-year community order. He was also banned from contacting children on the internet and will have to register as a sex offender. Mrs Roberts was praised by a children's charity for reporting her husband.

Terrorism has been defined as "a criminal act that influences an audience beyond the immediate victim". We agree, but the question is, what entity today has the greatest capacity to carry out criminal acts and influence an audience beyond the immediate victim? Figure that one out, and you've got the real terrorists.

But first, let's look at some of the influences we've all come under during the month of October. Vaccination season has kicked off in US, Canada and UK and Obama has declared the swine flu a national emergency! Well, if Mr. Charm, Change and Hope says so, it must be true! Right?
