DID ISRAEL KILL RAFIK HARIRI WITH A PRECISION PENETRATOR BOMB?

October 27, 2008

The U.S. media is indulging in war mongering “yellow journalism” by repeating baseless allegations that Syria is behind the “car bombing” of a popular Lebanese nationalist, while the evidence suggests that the assassination was carried out using a guided missile launched from a plane – a precision penetration bomb – a “targeted killing” technique perfected by Israel.


BBC show Spooks prepares to screen REAL waterboarding torture scenes

October 27, 2008

The BBC are preparing to screen scenes of an actor being subjected to a controversial form of torture – waterboarding. The scenes, starring actor Richard Armitage, will be shown during the new series of popular show Spooks, which starts tonight.  >>>>>

Just adding to the further desensitization of the public toward waterboarding and torturing of people not considered American, or are deemed a threat to the U.S.


Report Finds Iraq Water Treatment Project to Be Late, Faulty and Over Budget

October 27, 2008

A huge American-financed wastewater treatment plant in the desert city of Falluja, which United States troops assaulted twice to root out insurgents in 2004, was supposed to be the centerpiece of an effort to rebuild Iraq, a country smashed by war and neglect, and bring Western standards of sanitation.  >>>>>


PIRATES CAPTURED AN “IRANIAN DIRTY BOMB?”

October 23, 2008

Although American intelligence and government sources are maintaining a strictly observed silence, the same does not apply to the Russians and so it is that we learn the real story of the MV Iran Deyanat. She was an enormous floating dirty bomb, intended to detonate after exiting the Suez Canal at the eastern end of the Mediterranean and in proximity to the coastal cities of Israel. The entire cargo of radioactive sand, obtained by Iran from China (the latter buys desperately needed oil from the former) and sealed in containers which, when the charges on the ship are set off after the crew took to the boats, will be blasted high into the air where prevailing winds will push the highly dangerous and radioactive cloud ashore.  >>>>>


Disillusioned Afghans Seen Turning on Karzai

October 23, 2008

President Karzai has been under pressure from the US and other allies to do something about the growing problem of corruption in his government, forcing him to shuffle his cabinet earlier this month. The mounting allegations have even extended to his family, with his brother reportedly linked to the nation’s burgeoning heroin trade>>>>>


Elderly Israeli killed in Jerusalem terror stabbing

October 23, 2008

As he tried to escape the scene, the terrorist stopped long enough to plunge his knife into the chest of an elderly pedestrian. Emergency resuscitation efforts by ambulance crews failed.

Despite his own wounds, the police officer managed to shoot the attacker several times. Another passerby then overpowered the injured terrorist.   >>>>>

While there is no doubt that stabbing a man in the chest is an act of terror; this short article uses the word terror/terrorist four times to identify a criminal act.  The problem is that the word ‘terror’ or ‘terrorist’ is not typically used by any newspaper around the world for individual crimes against another.  The same newspaper does not report Israeli-on-Arab or Jew-on-Muslim attacks as acts of terror.  This kind of bias only helps to create a further divide of the people and is a dangerous precedent in reporting.

Without realizing it, it has become common place to label anything an Arab or Muslim does, alleged or actual, as an act of terror.  This type of journalism allows for even non-Muslims who are against the Israeli apartheid and global agenda to continue to hold disdain for those Israel considers its ardent enemies – Arabs and Muslims.  Tsk, tsk.
