The Myth Of The Palestinian Suicide Bomber

Image
While the Israeli government has turned the Gaza strip and West Bank regions of Palestine into virtual prison camps, there is one section of the Palestinian community that appears to enjoy unhindered freedom of movement and a blind eye form the Israeli camps guards: "suicide bombers".

Today, one of these rare breed allegedly managed to get all the way down to the southern tip of Israel, to the Red Sea resort town of Eilat.

At 9.45 this morning (Eilat time), we are told that a "Palestinian suicide bomber" detonated his explosives in a small bakery, killing three people and himself. As with every other "suicide bombing" attributed to Palestinians over the past 6 years, we are forced to rely only on the claims of Israeli state security forces that each bombing was indeed a "suicide" attack. Such claims are almost always made within minutes of the event, subsequently propagating virus-like around the world's news agencies so that, by the time the world public gets wind of the news, it is already a closed case. There is however much to be gained from looking at the details of these alleged suicide bombings, because when we do, problems with the story invariably arise, not to mention uncomfortable questions.

Paramoralisms Where You Least Expect Them

Imagine you're out in the country, visiting one fine summer's day, and you ask your host to give you a walking tour through some of the beautiful countryside surrounding his house. He's agreeable to your suggestion, and you spend a pleasant hour hiking up and down the surrounding low mountains.

How many of you have seen the movie "The Day After Tomorrow?" If you haven't, the thesis of the movie is that Global warming causes large areas of the Arctic to melt, so that the northern Atlantic ocean is diluted by large amounts of fresh water which changes the density of the water layers causing a disruption of the Thermohaline current.. This then leads to a rapid and unnatural cooling of the northern hemisphere which triggers a series of anomalies, eventually leading to a massive "global superstorm" system consisting of three gigantic hurricane-like superstorms, which suck up heat and drop the super-cold upper atmospheric air down onto the planet resulting in an "instant Ice age."

MI6 And The Media - Manipulators Of The Mind




We all know how Iraq bit the dust, or at least we should. It was, to a large extent, the result of a "sexed up" dossier on Saddam's alleged ability to fire WMDs at the UK within 45 minutes. One of the chief architects of this, then Chairman of the Joint Intelligence Committee (JIC) John Scarlett, has recently been honored with a Knighthood for his duplicity, I believe he said something like: 'thank you your highness, just doing my job.'

Today's Boston Globe ran an editorial by the editorial page director, H.D.S. Greenway. It was a typical apparently "left of center" piece on a possible attack on Iran, with Greenway urging everyone to "step back and take a deep breath". Towards the end of the piece however, Greenway makes a comment where he momentarily strikes at the heart of the matter only to then gloss it over with a line taken directly from the Zionist book of truisms.

Optimism on Edge -- Stupid or Cointelpro?



The future's so bright, we gotta wear shades

When Alexander Pope said, 'hope springs eternal in the human breast', he followed it with:

Man never Is, but always To be blest:
The soul, uneasy and confin'd from home,
Rests and expatiates in a life to come.

Unfortunately, most people never get past the first line. If they did, they would understand that Pope's message in this case was not exactly one of optimism, unless an optimist is someone who wins every argument with "hey, at least there's heaven!"
