Rock Creek Free Press available in COS

The Rock Creek Free Press is available online, but if you want it in print, the DC monthly is available in Colorado Springs at the Bookman, 3163 W. Colorado. The September issue features a speech given by legendary Australian journalist John Pilger on July 4th in San Francisco. Here's the RCFP transcript: Two years ago I spoke at “Socialism in Chicago” about an invisible government which is a term used by Edward Bernays, one the founders of modern propaganda. It was Bernays, who in the 1920s invented public relations as a euphemism for propaganda. And it was Bernays, deploying the ideas of his uncle Sigmund Freud, who campaigned on behalf of the tobacco industry for women to take up smoking as an act of feminist liberation calling cigarettes “tortures of freedom”. At the same time he was involved in the disinformation which was critical in overthrowing the Arbenz government in Guatemala. So you have the association of cigarettes and regime change. The invisible government that Bernays had in mind brought together all media: PR, the press, broadcasting, advertising and their power of branding and image making. In other words, disinformation. And I suppose I would like to talk today about this invisible government’s most recent achievement, the rise of Barrack Obama and the silencing of much of the left. But all of this has a history, of course and I’d like to go back, take you back some forty years to a sultry and, for me, very memorable day in Viet Nam. I was a young war correspondent who had just arrived in a village in the Central Highlands called Tuylon. My assignment was to write about a unit of US Marines who had been sent to the village to win hearts and minds. “My orders,” said the Marine Sergeant, “are to sell the American way of liberty, as stated in the Pacification Handbook, this is designed to win the hearts and minds of folks as stated on page 86.” Now, page 86 was headed in capital letters: WHAM (winning hearts and minds). The Marine Unit was a combined action company which explained the Sergeant, meant, “We attack these folks on Mondays and we win their hearts and minds on Tuesdays.” He was joking, of course, but not quite. The Sergeant, who didn’t speak Vietnamese, had arrived in the village, stood up on a Jeep and said through a bullhorn: “Come on out everybody we’ve got rice and candies and toothbrushes to give you.” This was greeted by silence. “Now listen, either you gooks come on out or we’re going to come right in there and get you!” Now the people of Tuylon finally came out and they stood in line to receive packets of Uncle Ben’s Miracle Rice, Hershey Bars, party balloons, and several thousand toothbrushes. Three portable, battery operated, yellow, flush lavatories were held back for the arrival of the colonel. And when the colonel arrived that evening, the district chief was summoned and the yellow, flush lavatories unveiled. The colonel

In Israeli Apartheid, you and I are black

Sorta-leftist websites are touting use-to-be-leftist Uri Avnery's weekend article in Ma'an called "Tutu's Prayer." Where, the founder of Israel's Gush Shalom (touted as "fairly far left" as opposed to grandfather- clause'd phony) argues against the BDS boycott of Israel and against comparisons to South African apartheid. And where, Avnery shows himself blind to his own Judeo-centrism. Rejecting the term apartheid, Avnery writes: "It seems that the blacks in South Africa are very different from the Israelis--" Whaaaaat? Israelis see themselves as not the colonists but the natives! Who is it in Israel that has to wear the sunscreen? Avnery relates his conversation with Archbishop Desmond Tutu as reinforcing why a boycott will not work. Oh, Tutu testifies that the boycott worked against the South African regime. But Avnery points out the uniqueness of the Jews, who suffered the Holocaust. All Jews, he explains, believe the whole world is against them. An international boycott will only reinforce that belief. His conclusion: Israel will resist a boycott forever. Ergo, it won't work. Israelis as forever the victims; doesn't that point to why Israelis cannot begin to see why their actions against their neighbors are likened to war crimes? They see themselves as the black of South Africa. They probably see themselves as the Palestinians in the struggle over Gaza. You don't have to explain to the rest of the world, who is oppressing whom in the Middle East. And that's who has the fuller view of Israeli Apartheid. Apartheid in Israel is much simpler than between Israeli Jews and the dispossessed Palestinians. Under Israeli Apartheid, every Jew in the world has the preferential right to the land of the Palestinians. You, if you are a Jew, have a birthright to Israel, to the roads and lands designated for Jews only. You, if you are not a Jew, do not. That is Israeli Apartheid. To Israel, everyone else, you , me, and the Palestinians are the black.

Stand united against Christian Endtimers who cheerlead colonial war for Zionism

SUNDAY 5/17- Colorado Springs Christians United For Israel has scheduled A Night to Honor Israel to instruct one and all "WHY it is necessary to stand united for Israel: "Biblically, Morally, Geo-politically" on Sunday May 17, from 3pm-7pm at the City Auditorium. Can you guess there will be something to say about this outside? COLORADANS FOR PEACE will be providing counterbalance to the racist war-mongering outside the City Auditorium, from before 3pm Sunday, until this message is heard: JUSTICE FOR PALESTINE, NO WAR WITH IRAN. With the consent and aid of the US, Israel most recently committed horrible atrocities in Gaza and Lebanon, and they continue to seize Palestinian land and oppress the Palestinian people. Inciting America's Christian community to rally for Zionist racism is exactly what will not serve the cause of peace in the Middle East. The CUFI invite reads: "Join us for Colorado Springs' first ever Night to Honor Israel as Christian and Jewish communities gather in a show of support for Israel. The event boasts traditional Israeli song and dance, a beautiful banner presentation of the Tribes of Israel, and dynamic speakers that will convey the importance of standing with Israel and encourage us to action. There will be an Israeli Marketplace, and the event will close with a light reception." Which sounds reasonable enough, until of course the mention of "encourage us to action." By action, the CUFI guest speakers mean war with Iran. The Colorado Springs event is one of scores scheduled across the country this weekend, intended as "a gift to Israel on the anniversary of her creation," an expression of unconditional support "in Israel's hour of need." Israel has in the last hour cast Lebanon and Gaza into death throes, as it grades the remainder of Palestine for Jewish settlements. By hour of need, do they mean, the threat posed by Iran acquiring nuclear weapons? Iran has never threatened the "destruction of Israel" other than the expressed hope that her Zionist system of apartheid borders be dissolved and the inhabitants of the region be permitted a democratic regime of their choosing. Here are some sample banner slogans: CHRISTIAN RIGHT + ZIONISM = UNHOLY ALLIANCE WHAT FRIEND OF ISRAEL CONDEMNS JEWS TO HELL? ISRAEL IS NOT YOUR ESCHATOLOGICAL PAWN CHRISTIAN ZIONISTS ARE ANTI-SEMITES Here's the COLORADANS FOR PEACE invite, please pass it around! Fellow peace activists, If you haven't heard already, we will be protesting "A NIGHT TO HONOR ISRAEL" to be held at the Colorado Springs City Auditorium this Sunday. The event is sponsored by Christians United For Israel, which teaches unconditional support of Israel, and is currently advocating for a US attack on Iran. This event is touted as the "First Annual" for Colorado Springs, and is among 60 happening on the same day all over the country as "a gift to Israel." The same featured speakers have been traveling the US over the last several months urging unilateral support for Israel "in her hour of great need." COLORADANS FOR PEACE is determined to show that the City of Colorado Springs must

Little Eichmann Country-Western anthem

Of course, that describes most of the Pseudo-patriotic crap infesting the airwaves now... But there's one I heard "that's the way things were and still ought to be" Like honoring our preachers, leaders, teachers and heroes and believing everything they said Charlie Manson was a preacher. Preached Armageddon really really strong. Cotten Mather was a Preacher who gets quoted a lot by the Reich Wing, (Like Chuck Norris and Dawg the Bounty Hunter, just another couple of Wannabe Pigs) whenever they say that America should be a Religious Dictatorship... Who also said that Native Americans were a construct of Satan because we're not specifically mentioned in Genesis, that we had no souls and should be exterminated. And that the people who allowed their kids to play with dolls were practicing witchcraft and should be killed. And the Kiddoes themselves... Imagine, if you will, somebody offing your rug-rats because you gave them a Teddy Bear or let them watch Mickey Mouse or Bugs Bunny.... And the Good Pastor Mather also owned Slaves. Leaders? McCarthy, for instance, with all the Liars, Murderers and Thieves who were and are his Fellow Travelers, like Reagan, Nixon, Bush (all the Bush Klan), Billy Sunday who was one of Their Crowd and also a Nazi Sympathizer (and, leave us not forget, a Preacher), People who could feel at ease at a Country Club or a Klan Rally? We should believe everything they said or say? Really? We're supposed to (here in Colorado Springs) Revere and Honor "heroes" like Custer and Chivington and Palmer... Racist SCUM who tried to wipe a whole race of Americans from the face of the world. When Custer is quoted in the book (and film) Little Big Man as saying It's more important to kill the women and children, because if we let them breed there wouldn't be any point killing the men It's an accurate representation of what the punk murdering bastard actually DID say. And we've got an Idol of his disciple William Jackson Palmer parked right in the middle of a busy intersection. By the way, Custer and Chivington and Palmer also believed in and quoted Cotten Mather... And the "War on Christmas" loudmouths should remember this, Cotten Mather was a Puritan... whose family had been run out of England for criticizing their Religious Dictatorship and, importantly, pissing off King James by opposing the celebration of CHRISTMAS because it's a Catholic holiday I don't remember the name of the singer, but it's one of those redneck punks who offers to beat up on anybody who disagrees with him. Yep, real Role Model for a working Civilization. The kid who sings the song is (to me) a youngster. Mid twenties, maybe thirties. No way in HELL could this dude remember anything at all about the 70s even. Far Less the 40s, 50s and 60s that's he's so nostalgic about. When Apartheid was the Official Law of the Land in 20 states. People of "color" could be arrested or even hanged for not stepping off the sidewalk to let the Master Race walk past. THAT'S the way things were, and I for one actually

The American Caterpillar stormtroopers

Here come the stormtroopers with their American made caterpillar. Jewish Human Rights Activist Ezra Nawi now tries to stop this nasty American bug! Ezra then goes to jail as the stormtrooper gang has a jolly good time.   Doesn't all this remind you of the American fun and games crew over at Abu Ghraib? See it and weep, Kids.

Anti-Zionism 4D: Defining Demonization Double Standards and Delegitimization

The word "nutritious" defines a food quality that provides sustenance. I've no doubt as skepticism grows about the likely poisonous aspects of refined sugar and High Fructose Corn Syrup, the corporate sugar-water purveyors will append "satiates your subliminal impulses" to the meaning of nutritious. Who safeguards our dictionaries from authoritarians who profit from reweaving the fabric of knowledge we consider inviolate? We expect facts to change, but it is unsettling to be robbed of the words which we count on to measure the change. Did you think "anti-Semitic" meant prejudice against the Jews? It does, except the Zionists behind sustaining Israel want it to indemnify their unpopular endeavor too. Anti-Semitism now means opposing Israel, although the stigma implied is of course still "Jew Hater." But the appropriation is unseemly. Crusading Evangelicals could tell you, if you oppose their bloody incursions into the lands of Islam, then you must be anti-Christian. But are you? It would seem only fair that the victims of anti-Semitism should be entitled to define what oppresses them, but that's not who's wrapping themselves in its protection. Zionists (both Jewish and Christian) claim that an overwhelming percentage of World Jewry supports sustaining the US-Israel occupation of Palestine. Is it true? I wager that the far greater proportion of both Jews and non-Jews repudiate military aggression, occupation, ethnic cleansing and religious oppression. But if it were true, claims of suffering historical persecution are not grounds to be given license to persecute others. Anti-Semitism describes real, tradition-rooted anti-Jewish sentiment. To expand its meaning disrespects the very tangible prejudice which Jews still face. Opposition to sustaining Israel is actually Anti-Zionism, which is neither for nor against Judaism. Anti-Zionism denounces another long-held prejudice: White European Man's assertion that the Holy Land belongs to him. Anti-Zionism is the opposition to sustaining an illegally invaded, illegally occupied, racist administration of Palestine in the name of "Zionism." Anti-Zionism calls for "the destruction of Israel," meaning the dissolution of the Western colonial theocracy imposed on the indigenous population of the Middle East. To oppose the sustaining of Israel is a call to exterminate Israeli apartheid. Anti-Zionism is no resurrection of the Final Solution. It means leave people be. White settlers should not assume to usurp the lands and water rights of the native Palestinians. Zionism defender Nathan Sharansky has constructed a definition of anti-Semitism with an expanded breadth, he calls them the three Ds: Demonization, Double Standards and Delegitimization. It's this 3D definition with which Zionists are branding UCSB professor William Robinson, himself a Jew, as an anti-Semite. Professor Robinson circulated an email among his sociology students, comparing Israel's actions in Gaza to methods used by the Nazis, now US-Israeli lobby groups are calling for UCSB to censure him. Sharansky's three Ds are easily refuted because he offers no more than circular argument. Ipso Facto my eye. I reprint Sharansky's explanation below, but first an abridgment: Demonization: "...having [the Jewish state's] actions blown out of all sensible proportion ... can only be considered anti-Semitic." Double Standards: "It

White European genocide by poverty, war, and disease

The US and Europe supported Portuguese colonialism in South Africa and White South African Apartheid for centuries. Today they support genocide in the region of Southern Africa, even as they pretend to want to 'help'. This is where the epicenter of HIV infection is allowed to continue to rage as it is coming close to infecting 30% of the population in some of the countries found there. What has The West done beyond starting off the process of disease, poverty, and warfare in this region that has now lead to this crisis? 'The overwhelming majority of people with HIV, some 95% of the global total, live in the developing world.' Yes, but that statement actually tells us so very little since it is principally South Africa and the countries surrounding South Africa that Apartheid infected with this disease in epidemic proportions. What we are seeing there is the equivalent of the Plague Years of Medieval Europe having been implanted by White European Apartheid States during their reign, with American and Europe now standing by with their thumbs up their asses. That is GENOCIDE.

UCSB Prof William Robinson pro-Semite

Wouldn't you think it bad form for Israeli militants to behave like Nazis, while immunizing themselves with the self-righteous indignation that any criticism of their actions can simply be dismissed as "anti-Semitic?" Photographs and confessions emerging from the IDF's atrocities in Gaza just beg comparison the German Einsatzgruppen in Poland. Earlier this year UC Santa Barbara professor William Robinson forwarded an email photo essay to a UCSB listserv, the already much-circulated side by side comparison to the WWII atrocities. Two students complained, plagiarizing stock IDF lingo. Now the Anti-Defamation League wants Robinson to recant. With IDF propagandists pouring on the bullshit, let's revisit the documents. As has already been noted, Professor Robinson is a harsh critic of US foreign policy, and already a likely target for the goon squad enforcers of Western Capitalism. Not many of America's actions are defensible, so Robinson has to be attacked by desperate means. Lucky for the lackey-jackals, Robinson chose to criticize Israel's atrocities against the Palestinians of Gaza. Bingo! The Israeli propaganda machine has armed aspiring Israel-defenders with a blanket rebuttal: just yell "ANTI-SEMITISM!" And what a load of crap that is. Much turns on the definition of "anti-Semitism." It packs the punch of meaning someone who hates Jews, but the advocates of Zionism have expanded the definition into 3-D! Zionist apologist Nathan Sharansky has coined the 3D definition of ant-Semitism: demonization of Israel, double standards, and delegitimization. You don't have to look closely to note that those points outline all the rebuttals of criticisms of Israel and any question of the legitimacy of the Zionist usurpation of Palestine. The criticisms posed by those concerned for the fate of Gaza are the same expressed by a large portion of the Israeli Jewish population as well. But the US Israeli lobby, militantly Zionist, has the complicity of the US war-mongering corporate media, thus the IDF Megaphone protestations get traction. These are the same cheap shots leveled against Ward Churchill. By flooding the internet to create the sensation that the indignation was shared, the IDF spammers have been successful in slandering these dissenting academics. Since we're seeing this technique being slopped unto our comment forums, let's examine the statement for which Robinson is being attacked. First we'll present Robinson's email. The next post will feature the ensuing letters of complaint, two from UCSB students, and third from the ADL. Original Email Here is Professor Robinson's original email, including his attachment of the Judith Stone article. This accompanied the aforementioned photo essay he forwarded. Subject: [socforum] parallel images of Nazis and Israelis From: "William I. Robinson" ... Date: Mon, 19 Jan 2009 21:00:05 ... If Martin Luther King were alive on this day of January 19, 2009, there is no doubt that he would be condemning the Israeli aggression against Gaza along with U.S. military and political support for Israeli war crimes, or that he would be standing shoulder to shoulder with the Palestinians. I am forwarding some horrific, parallel images of Nazi atrocities against the Jews and Israeli atrocities

Who said Israel is an Apartheid State?

"Israel, like South Africa, is an apartheid state." ...Who said this? The ANSWER   Further Hendrik Frensch Verwoerd, the Architect of Apartheid, said "...a colonial racist mentality which rationalised the genocide of the indigenous peoples of the Americas and Australasia, in Africa from Namibia to the Congo and elsewhere, most clearly has its parallels in Palestine."

Israel as Old South USA- No Nigger Arabs need apply here

In Jonathan Cook's The "Hebrew Labor" Principle Lives On, one gets a true picture of the Jewish State as Old South USA. We often hear in Zionist posts to our blog that, 'Our Arabs get treated better than they do in the Arab countries themselves', but it's just another one of their lies. Who would want to be anything other than Jewish in a theological dictatorship like present day Israel? YES, and there are multiple forms of discrimination against the non Jewish in almost every way, and that includes who gets the choicer jobs, too. In Old South USA, Blacks were systematically kept out of choice employment, and instead had to take the jobs of picking up the garbage, cleaning the poop of old people and small kids, and doing all the back breaking labor in the fields and doing all the deadly jobs in industry. We can always suspect that the Jewish Final Solution to getting rid of the indigenous population will not be the total elimination of the Palestinians. If all Palestinians were to be totally removed, then who would do the dirty work for the Master Race of only those officially registered to the Jewish religion? YES, what would the Apartheid Jewish Supremacy State do then? Who then could the Jewish State call upon to do the actual construction of the physical Jewish State infrastructure? See 'Arab Work' a new Israeli comedy for the 'humorous side' of the Israeli Apartheid State. It might be as funny as The Jeffersons sitcom once was, so I wonder if it will ever be shown on American TV?

Jewish State Israel’s slow construction of more war and more Apartheid

On March 2, 2009, the Israeli advocacy group Peace Now issued a report saying that the Israeli housing ministry plans to build 73,000 housing units in the West Bank. Peace Now said 15,000 of these units had already been approved, with another 58,000 awaiting approval. This article continues at The Settler Question- What Israeli Peace Process? They talk two state solution even as they dismantle Arab neighborhoods. They talk Peace, even as they insure that there will be more war. Always they build racism instead of coexistence. That simply is Israel at work today, as it slowly builds toward more future conflict in the Middle East. The Jewish State doesn't want Peace, since it simply wants still more Palestinian land.

Israel needs a new ‘security fence’ to protect women from former President Slick Moshe

Moshe Katsav was the Israeli political architect of that fixture of Apartheid Jewish State Israel, the so-called 'security fence', though it now seems that Jewish women have long needed a security fence to keep themselves safe from Slick Moshe! Ex-Israel head faces rape charge. ...Shame, too, on the big bad Palestinian grafitti artist for defacing that nice Israeli wall that Slick Moshe constructed. Bad 'anti-semite,' Bad Boy!

Jewish Racism

At a time when the US government is boycotting participation in the United Nations 2009 anti-racism conference, here are a few interesting figures from The Association of Civil Rights in Israel. ACRI`s Annual Report on the State of Human Rights We learn the following... According to the Israeli Association for Civil Rights, anti-Arab incidents have risen sharply. “Israeli society is reaching new heights of racism that damages freedom of expression and privacy,” says Sami Michael, the organization’s president. Among the Association’s findings: Some 55 percent of Jewish Israelis say that the state should encourage Arab emigration; 78 percent of Jewish Israelis oppose including Arab parties in the government; 56 percent agree with the statement that “Arabs cannot attain the Jewish level of cultural development”; 75 percent agree that Arabs are inclined to be violent. Among Arab-Israelis, 54 percent feel the same way about Jews. 75 percent of Israeli Jews say they would not live in the same building as Arabs. This could almost have been polled from the US and be White opinions about Blacks. Zionism simply is racism, and YES, Jewish people are often racists. See Israeli Civil rights group claim Israeli occupation is "reminiscent of apartheid"

"They" parrot the same Internet Megaphone IDF propaganda talking points: Gaza is not occupied, there was no genocide, Israel's birthright to exist is a moot point, Zionism is neither racism nor Apartheid, anti-Arab Professor Bernard Lewis, the greenhouses gifted by Israel, CAMERA articles, etc. UPDATE: The original title of this post was: Denise was Mitch was Mary was Ronald Now: Alex is Walid is Peter is Allan is Ali is Sean is Denise...

Activism heroics and roadkill

This is by no means a complete list of contemporary populist heros, but I'd like to start with comedian Stephen Colbert, who roasted President Bush at a Washington Correspondents Association Dinner, like a court jester gone rabid. With celebrated White House correspondent Helen Thomas's help, Colbert belittled the decider-in-chief to his face right in front of his friends. Don't Taser Me Bro There was University of Florida student Andrew Meyer, who held his ground asking critical questions of Senator John Kerry. Meyer was tackled and tasered for his impertinence, while Kerry kept mumbling, to divert attention from "Don't taser me Bro." Bidder 70 Then Utah environmentalist Tim DeChristopher disrupted a government land auction, driving up prices and buying several leases raising paddle number 70, until federal agents took him away. Extraction industry spokesperson Kathleen Sgamma may have miscalculated the degree of DeChristopher's popular support. She earned no one's sympathy when she complained: "There's a democratic process in place if you don't like what's happening. If we all just decided we wanted to change the laws unilaterally, that would run counter to our democracy." The Shoes And Iraqi Journalist Muntadhar al-Zaidi is in jail for throwing his shoes at that dog Bush, when our president was making a farewell visit to Baghdad. (His trial date is fast approaching actually.) The shoes missed, but Bush was made to duck, which is the closest anyone's come to getting reality to register with the cretinous bitch. Barack's first press conference Let's also mention Helen Thomas again, at Barack Obama's first press conference a week ago. When Obama ceremoniously called on Thomas to lob the last question, Thomas asked the president to name who in the Middle East had nuclear weapons. It was something of a leading question, because the answer is known, but bears reminding when the argument is repeated that Iran acquiring nukes would lead to proliferation. Thomas put Obama in the position of having to utter recognition of Israel's never-mentioned nuclear program, or very conspicuously avoid the subject. Which is what he did. Israel Divestment Movement Now the Hampshire Students for Justice in Palestine have succeeded in getting their school to divest in Israel, just as Hampshire College led the way in the nationwide divestitures which contributed to the fall of Apartheid in South Africa. Board of trustees chairman Sigmund Roos tried to explain that the school's actions were in no way a repudiation of Israel, and accused the students of falsely claiming otherwise. Of the 800-signature petition, Roos explained: "We never took it up. Students know that." Really? A petition signed by 800 of your students and faculty, and the Hampshire College board of trustees wouldn't even read it? Roos doesn't know what hit him.

Third class citizens in the Jewish Apartheid State

Indigenous Palestinians are not really even second class citizens within the 'Jewish Apartheid State since certain elements of the Jewish community are given second class status themselves. Even calling Israel's Palestinians Third Class citizens is kind of a stretch since they correctly believe and feel that the Jewish community will try to expel them at the first opportune moment. Discrimination against their culture, heritage, religion, and language is everywhere. Israel's forgotten Palestinians Israel is a classic colonialist Apartheid State. Even the rather conservative ex-Prez Jimmy Carter can see and admit that.

Apartheid Israel must be abolished

After what Israel has done to the Palestinians for the last 60 years, they have every right to want the destruction of Israel. And so should everyone else. Didn't the world learn anything from the rise of Nazi Germany? "I want to tell you something very clear: Don't worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it." --Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, October 3, 2001 Obama's Inauspicious Beginning by Khalid Amayreh We in the Middle East realize quite well that Obama is not going to be the paragon of freedom and justice many naïve people had thought he would be. Unfortunately, the American political environment is too morally barren to produce truly moral politicians who would be willing, let alone able, to call the spade a spade, especially when the Zio-Nazi state is concerned. Israel Must Stop Fanning the Flames That Will Consume Us by David Grossman A month after the war began, in the midst of the wave of nationalist invective now sweeping Israel, it would not hurt to keep in mind that this latest military operation in Gaza was, when all is said and done, just one more way-station on a road paved with fire, violence and hatred. On this road, you sometimes win and you sometimes lose, but in the end it leads to ruin. But as the magnitude of the killing and the devastation has become apparent to all, perhaps Israeli society will, for a brief moment, put its sophisticated mechanisms of repression and self-righteousness on hold. And then perhaps a lesson of some sort will be etched into the Israeli consciousness. Maybe then we will finally understand something deep and fundamental — that our conduct here in this region has, for a long time, been flawed, immoral and unwise. Time and again, it fans the flames that are consuming us.

Israel declined December cease-fire offer because it meant opening the Gaza border

A US media blackout is keeping the Gaza solidarity demonstrations out of the news, while repeating the mantra of Israel's right to defend itself. Behind the media lies, the diplomatic records speak another story: Israel Rejected Hamas Cease-Fire Offer in December. Colorado Springs' own Rabbi Donald Levy has been decrying in the local press how Israel is criticized "so deeply and so repeatedly...simply for defending its borders." Speaking for the Jewish Community, Levy explained to KRDO how all Jews feel some connection to Israel, and that the community hopes recent events will lead to the destruction of Hamas. The "destruction of Hamas?" Hamas members are the democratically elected representatives of Palestine! It's one thing to call for "wiping Israel [an apartheid theocracy imposed upon Arabs] from the map." Even Hamas is not cheerleading for a liquidation of all Israeli Likud Party members!

Opportunity to address new Colorado US Senator Michael Bennet on Saturday

Colorado Governor Bill Ritter and his pick to replace Senator Ken Salazar, Denver School Superintendent Michael Bennet, will be visiting Colorado Springs on Saturday, Jan 10. You’re invited to meet the two at the Penrose Public Library at 12noon. COME AT 11AM, make them heed their constituents and stop the US wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and GAZA.   Let's show them that Colorado isn't just about soldiers and weapons contractors earning their livelihood from the expenditure of ordnance. From A.N.S.W.E.R.: The Red Cross has condemned Israel for violating international law by blocking ambulance and rescue efforts for wounded civilians. There are thousands of wounded people. The Red Cross rescue team had reported of one of many instances: [we] “found four small children next to their dead mothers in one of the houses. They were too weak to stand up on their own. One man was also found alive, too weak to stand up," the statement said. "In all, there were at least 12 corpses lying on mattresses" in one of the houses, it added. The Red Cross declared that Israel had violated international law in its failure to allow for care and treatment of wounded people. The Red Cross had asked Israeli forces to allow them to access these children for four days and the IOF, which remained within 80 meters from the houses, refused to allow the Red Cross through while also refusing to help the dying families. The Washington Post reports: “The United Nations on Thursday said it was indefinitely suspending all humanitarian aid deliveries in the Gaza Strip, citing a series of Israeli attacks on U.N. facilities and personnel during the 13-day Israeli offensive. “The suspension appeared likely to deepen a sense of crisis in Gaza, where more than half the territory's 1.5 million people live on food aid from the United Nations and where water, power and cooking gas are all in short supply.” The people of Gaza are enduring immense hardship. The must know that they are not alone. The world stands with them. The only thing that will end this criminal invasion and war is the massive outpouring of the people in Washington, D.C., and in countries around the world. It is the people who are making the difference. That is what January 10th is all about. From Students for Justice in Palestine: SJP condemns this Israeli escalation of violence against Gazans in the harshest of manners and highlights that it was forewarned by Israel's deputy defense minister Matan Vilnai as a "greater Shoah" the Hebrew word for the Nazi holocaust. Under International law and standing UN conventions, destroying a people in part or in full is considered ethnic cleansing. The full siege of Gaza is leading to deaths due to lack of access to medical essentials, sickness, lack of sanitation and lack of access to basic resources that are there and protected as basic human rights. The Palestinians dying in Gaza were pushed out by Israel, forcefully and illegally in an effort to ethnically cleanse Palestine. Now Israel is killing them inside the refugee camps. Peace

Israeli fury seals a Single State Solution

Israel's relentless and unrepentant program to exterminate the Palestinians of Gaza, will yield but a single outcome. And it would certainly please the Palestinians, if they live to see it. First, if Palestine is deprived of viability as an independent state, Israel is left with only a single state solution. Second, with Israel convinced that its security from rocket fire depends on every last Arab neighbor being interned or interred, there is no other choice but cloistered Apartheid. Will the international community long tolerate a feudal theocracy constantly inflaming the resentment of its indigenous laborers? I was being facetious to suggest that Palestinians will not live to see Israel vanquished. Much as Israel might try, the Palestinians won't be killed off like North America's original natives. Neither Gaza nor the West Bank will succumb to genocide, alcoholism or uranium poisoning, nor vanish like an eclipsed civilization. They can be driven off, and dispersed among the neighbors, but the Palestinian diaspora will hang interminable with a much fresher claim to the lands of their fathers than ever had the Zionists. But on the ground, the captive Palestinians will never reconstitute even a client state, so long as Israel pens them in like Soweto. Lands allotted to Palestinians will be work camps, and prison camps, with every un-free man's right to rebel against the yoke of occupation. Israel will dodge rockets until the last slave is shackled. And I guess the world will sit by and let them do that. However blatant they want to be about it. Knowing that after Lebanon and Gaza, Israel has disciplinary actions aimed at Syria and Iran, what are the prospects for cohabitation in the Middle East? Does Israel expect that its "right to exist" grants it a swath of no-man's zone, extended beyond the borders of all its neighbors? Israel's wrathful attack on Gaza, as retaliation for Hamas' motley rockets, the disproportionality of the air strikes, and the IDF's disregard for innocent civilian casualties, betrays Israel's racist ambivalence about the fate of non-Jews. Without a humanitarian regard for others, how can Israel expect to be asked to the adult's table? So Israel has sealed its own fate. Obliterate the Palestinians or drive them off, ostracize the neighbors until you are all alone. Israel will be a solitary state, inhabited by the white elite, separated by a state religion forbidden to their darker working castes. The untouchables will live behind apartheid walls until delivered by an Arab Mandela. Then international pressure, hopefully too a domestic conscience, will bring Democracy, and then, as current opponents of a single-state-solution fear, a popular vote will eradicate the oppression of religious rule. Say goodbye to Israel, the Jewish State. It will "be wiped off the map" of the Middle East, and left for Jews and Palestinians to inhabit with equality. So long as particular Palestinians do not survive who have claims to properties appropriated by the Zionists, or so long as some compensation is offered to buy off the Palestinian's right

The WMDs are in Israel!

NAZI seige of Gaza continues, heartless Obama refuses to utter a single word of restraint. The world can just forget about "hope." ... all those poor, deluded souls who "believe" things will actually change when President Bush-lite is inaugurated on the 20th. While the cowardly Obama bows down to his Zionist puppet masters, Nazis bomb schools full of kids. Damn Israel to Hell, forever! List of Zionist traitors in the US government. What do you know, pretty much everyone who lied the country into war in Iraq is on that list! Photo gallery of children murdered by the Nazis. The Israelis are no longer even human. Are Comparisons Of Apartheid Israel To Nazi Germany Fair To Nazis? Pay-to-play Democrats: Bill Richardson withdraws his nomination for Secretary of Commerce, on news that he is under investigation for giving a company gov't contracts after they donated $100,000 to him. Hillary apparently has a very similar problem, and for exactly the same amount. What do you bet she refuses to do the right thing, like Richardson, and holds out until Obama kicks her out?

Anti-Zimbabwe sanctions create cholera epidemic in Africa

There is nobody more cynical and murderous than Gordon Brown, the Barack Obama equivalent who is Great Britain's Prime Minster at the time. Here is Gordon the Goodie promoting genocide in July of this year UK looks to Europe for Zimbabwe sanctions Now here is the same Gordon Brown in December PM urges Zimbabwe cholera action where he blames Mugabe for the cholera outbreak and not himself. He wants regime change in Zimbabwe and he is not about to cry (other than crocodile tears) about any collateral damage he might cause! Who gave Gordon Brown and the British the right to be intervening against any government of Zimbabwe anyway? This all started back when Mugabe moved against the couple of thousand left over Rhodesian White Apartheid regime's leftovers in the country, who had taken away about 40% of the best land in the country from its indigenous Black population. Mugabe began a program of redistribution of that land and Great Britain went bananas about it. Today, cut to the cholera epidemic where the same Brits have used economic warfare to destroy Zimbabwe and to create untold suffering. Mugabe is no hero in all this, but the issue really is imperialist intervention and not just one unlikable head of state is up to or not? It really is nauseating to see the BBC reports where they honey coat their pro economic warfare against Zimbabwe 'reports' as they always do. Gordon Brown as saint? Not even close.

Ehud Olmert does the Jimmy Carter shuffle!

Jimmy Carter is the American adept at doing the religious thing. He began his campaign for president with the political announcement that he had been supposedly 'born again' through Jesus, and he has continued to fool the naive with the same schtick. Many religious pacifist liberals types adore his book about Israeli Apartheid, and see it as almost the Second Coming of Jimmy! Now, we have the ex-Israeli PM, Ehud Olmert, copy-catting the great Peanut Farmer and shuffling along with this own form of 'rebirth'. It's all a big song and dance! The Capitalist System always has its carrot and stick pluralism moving full steam, and that is the role these political 'conversions' play, whether it be Bloody Al Gore, Jimmy 'Peace' Carter, or Ehud Olmert. Take these players all in with a big grain of salt. Uri Avnery, the great Jewish Israeli good heart seemingly doesn't as he takes 'the conversion' of Olmert at face value in his most recent commentary, Olmert's Final Divorce From "All of Eretz Israel" This type of political manipulation is borrowed from the churches, where the pastors and mullah rabbis are specialized in providing fake emotion to their masses of Believers. Benny Hinn anybody? Just a little over a year ago, I saw an example of this role playing at the Colorado Springs City Council meeting, where pastor emeritus of the Pikes Peak Justice and Peace Commission, Jim White, turned the liberal crocodile tears on in full display. It was a fountain, in fact. He literally wept in front of his amazed audience as he asked the mayor and the council folk, 'Why are we always so misunderstood?' It was the most comical display imaginable! I say that because if I have ever seen glowing hatred in the eyes of anybody, it was in the face of Pastor Jim White when crossed. You can see that steely glare in Jimmy Carter's eyes, too, if you only look a little. So Ehud Olmert now wants peace with The Natives? What a con! He had the chance to achieve that but made no effort at all to concretize a Peace Initiative. Now he wants to play the saint in his retirement? What a bunch of throw up! These politicians always have all the personal character of 'good' used car salesmen, which is to say none. Watch the show but do not be taken in.

A look at Life under Jewish Apartheid

In his book Israeli Palestinians: the Unwanted Who Stayed, Jonathan Cook paints a picture which reminds me in some ways of the Deep South in the late Fifties and early Sixties which I vaguely experienced as a young kid. But it differs in major factors, too. Maybe a better comparison would be that the Israeli Palestinians are in the same situation as the Cherokee Nation when the White Settlers started invading their lands. The Cherokee then became citizens of the US, but were considered not of the US. They were separate and unequal in the eyes of the majority, and now we know what the Final Solution was for them. If the world allows this ethnic cleansing in the Middle East by the Jews to continue, the Israeli Palestinians may ultimately share much the same fate as the Cherokees eventually did. Pushed off their land and out of their possessions, as in fact has already occurred for millions of Palestinians. The Arab countries' dictatorships propped up by US power certainly have not helped affairs much at all. They are too busy looting their own countrymen and too allied with the US government for the rest of the Arab people to be able to help the Palestinians much out. And the other Native American tribes in the past were unable (and possibly at times unwilling?) to help the Cherokee out either. Visit the Jonathan Cook website He has a bird's eye view of what Israel is actually like, and it is not a pretty picture he paints.
