Map of Israeli aggressions, massacres and war crimes galore.
Map of Israeli aggressions, massacres and war crimes galore.
"How does a defensive action result in the total conquest
of someone else's lands? The answer is that it does not.
Israel is the aggressor.
The maps of Israel then and now prove it.
Stop buying into what Sharon claims Israel "has to do"
and look at what Israel has actually done.
The maps tell the story of a nation eager to
conquer lands which do not belong to it.
Israel has invaded virtually every nation it
shares borders with, including Syria and Lebanon,
and as the map above shows has almost conquered
Palestine and is ready to "ethnically cleanse"
the region. Far from being the poor victimized
society desperately defending itself Israel likes
to pretend it is in order to wrest more money from
Americans, Israel is in fact the most militarily
aggressive nation in the region.
Israel has ALWAYS portrayed non-Israelis as animals,
in order to make it easier for the American tax
payers who pay for the weapons accept their
killing. And Israel has always resorted to
staged terror bombings to further its agenda,
such as the Lavon affair and more recently when a
supposed suicide bomber turned out to be a known
In one recent case photos showed that what was
reported as a suicide bomb in Jerusalem was
actually a car bomb "
The compliant support the West's Mainstream Media has given to this Israeli barbarity, against unarmed civilians and lightly armed Hamas belligerents, must be remembered by all. From now on, all Newspaper editors who conspire to hide this kind of atrocity, whilst presenting only the Israeli "side of the story" are guilty of war-crimes and crimes against humanity. Just as at Nuremburg the media will be held to account for their moral failure. The West must purge itself of this Khazar sickness....Before Hamas actually became the democratically voted legitimate government, Israel refused to negotiate with Fatah. Their excuse then was they would not talk with Yasser Arafat. They will always be an excuse. The only country that purports to be a democratic country and yet had an undemocratic election in the last 10 years or so was the US....
The war has been designed by Israel, not to destroy Hamas, but to strengthen them. This whole exercise is designed to destroy Fatah, the only Palestinian authority that the Israeli gov will talk to. By strengthening Hamas, Israel would no longer have a "negotiator" to talk peace with, because like any "legitimate" government, Israel will not negotiate with "terrorists" This would mean an end to the peace process, allowing Israel to continue expansion of settlements, land grabbing etc etc....
Israeli Massacres: Details and Numbers - The following list of massacres is by no means exclusive, but they reflect the nature of the Zionist occupation of Palestine and Lebanon and show that massacres and expulsions were not aberrations that happen in any war, but organized atrocities with only one aim, that is to have a Zionist state which is 'goyim rein'.

So once again, Israel has opened the gates of hell to the Palestinians.
Forty civilian refugees dead in a United Nations school, three more in
another. Not bad for a night's work in Gaza by the army that believes in
"purity of arms". But why should we be surprised?
A must have requirement skill for every Zionist Israeli official
position is the ability to flagrantly lie and to distort even proven
facts. Israeli officials would rudely look you straight in the eyes and
tell you their lies without even the slightest twitch of the face. They
lie first to their own people and they lie to the international community.
Unfortunately and deceitfully the Israeli-terror-sponsored American
major media outlets repeat the Israeli lies although other international
media outlets are exposing these lies at the same time.
The Israeli lies propagate immensely specially during terror attacks the
Israeli terrorist army launches against civilian Arab population like
the latest worse-than-Nazi American supported holocaustal one-sided
all-out onslaught the Israeli terrorist state is inflicting against the
unarmed civilian Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.
Have we forgotten the 17,500 dead - almost all civilians, most of them
children and women - in Israel's 1982 invasion of Lebanon; the 1,700
Palestinian civilian dead in the Sabra-Chatila massacre; the 1996 Qana
massacre of 106 Lebanese civilian refugees, more than half of them children,
at a UN base; the massacre of the Marwahin refugees who were ordered from
their homes by the Israelis in 2006 then slaughtered by an Israeli
helicopter crew; the 1,000 dead of that same 2006 bombardment and Lebanese
invasion, almost all of them civilians?
What is amazing is that so many Western leaders, so many presidents and
prime ministers and, I fear, so many editors and journalists, bought the old
lie; that Israelis take such great care to avoid civilian casualties.
"Israel makes every possible effort to avoid civilian casualties," yet
another Israeli ambassador said only hours before the Gaza massacre. And
every president and prime minister who repeated this mendacity as an excuse
to avoid a ceasefire has the blood of last night's butchery on their hands.
Had George Bush had the courage to demand an immediate ceasefire 48 hours
earlier, those 40 civilians, the old and the women and children, would be
What happened was not just shameful. It was a disgrace. Would war crime be
too strong a description? For that is what we would call this atrocity if it
had been committed by Hamas. So a war crime, I'm afraid, it was. After
covering so many mass murders by the armies of the Middle East - by Syrian
troops, by Iraqi troops, by Iranian troops, by Israeli troops - I suppose
cynicism should be my reaction. But Israel claims it is fighting our war
against "international terror". The Israelis claim they are fighting in Gaza
for us, for our Western ideals, for our security, for our safety, by our
standards. And so we are also complicit in the savagery now being visited
I've reported the excuses the Israeli army has served up in the past for
these outrages. Since they may well be reheated in the coming hours, here
are some of them: that the Palestinians killed their own refugees, that the
Palestinians dug up bodies from cemeteries and planted them in the ruins,
that ultimately the Palestinians are to blame because they supported an
armed faction, or because armed Palestinians deliberately used the innocent
refugees as cover.
The Sabra and Chatila massacre was committed by Israel's IDF Sayyaret
Metkal and the SLA militia brought on the battle scene by Israeli IAF,
C130 Hercules aircraft to AIB, in full view of dozens of living witnesses,
and have all testified to that effect in Beirut, as Israel's own commission of
inquiry revealed, and Israel was the occupying power. When Israel was
blamed, Menachem Begin's government accused the world of a blood libel.
After Israeli artillery had fired shells into the UN base at Qana in 1996,
the Israelis claimed that Hezbollah gunmen were also sheltering in the base.
It was a lie. The more than 1,000 dead of 2006 - a war started when
Hezbollah captured two Israeli soldiers on the border - were simply
dismissed as the responsibility of the Hezbollah. Israel claimed the bodies
of children killed in a second Qana massacre may have been taken from a
graveyard. It was another lie. The Marwahin massacre was never excused. The
people of the village were ordered to flee, obeyed Israeli orders and were
then attacked by an Israeli gunship. The refugees took their children and
stood them around the truck in which they were traveling so that Israeli
pilots would see they were innocents. Then the Israeli helicopter mowed them
down at close range. Only two survived, by playing dead. Israel didn't even
Twelve years earlier, another Israeli helicopter attacked an ambulance
carrying civilians from a neighboring village - again after they were
ordered to leave by Israel - and killed three children and two women. The
Israelis claimed that a Hezbollah fighter was in the ambulance. It was
untrue. I covered all these atrocities, I investigated them all, talked to
the survivors. So did a number of my colleagues. Our fate, of course, was
that most slanderous of libels: we were accused of being anti-Semitic.
And I write the following without the slightest doubt: we'll hear all these
scandalous fabrications again. We'll have the Hamas-to-blame lie - heaven
knows, there is enough to blame them for without adding this crime - and we
may well have the bodies-from-the-cemetery lie and we'll almost certainly
have the Hamas-was-in-the-UN-school lie and we will very definitely have the
anti-Semitism lie. And our leaders will huff and puff and remind the world
that Hamas originally broke the ceasefire. It didn't. Israel broke it, first
on 4 November when its bombardment killed six Palestinians in Gaza and again
on 17 November when another bombardment killed four more Palestinians.
Yes, Israelis deserve security. Twenty Israelis dead in 10 years around Gaza
is a grim figure indeed. But 600 Palestinians dead in just over a week,
thousands over the years since 1948 - when the Israeli massacre at Deir
Yassin helped to kick-start the flight of Palestinians from that part of
Palestine that was to become Israel - is on a quite different scale. This
recalls not a normal Middle East bloodletting but an atrocity on the level
of the Balkan wars of the 1990s. And of course, when an Arab bestirs himself
with unrestrained fury and takes out his incendiary, blind anger on the
West, we will say it has nothing to do with us. Why do they hate us, we will
ask ? But let us not say we do not know the answer....
Can anyone name an insurgent campaign defeated by diplomacy and negotiation?
Egypt has largely behaved after it got Sinai back - though that was not an insurgent operation and the Sinai was a rather large price. Anwar Sadot also paid dearly - though in different coin. Certainly Nazi Germany (also somewhat other than insurgent) was hardly deterred by the gifts of Poland and Czechoslovakia no matter how Neville Chamberlain tried to spin the deal.
The Viet Cong ceased to exist prior to the peace agreements between North and South Vietnam ... which the North of course violated every letter of and did so repeatedly.
Did anyone try to negotiate with Mao Tse Tung? Would anyone have believed he would actually live up to treaty terms?
Can negotiation and diplomacy truly occur when one party's basic belief system endorses every bad faith crime from lying through genocide? (Just to be clear, the lying genocidal party is certainly Hamas.)
So is the negotiation and diplomacy plea out of naïveté? Or organized malice of the 'big lie repeated often' variety?
I've always felt that the Israeli response lacked vision; this ground offensive just seems like more of the same. It will be interesting to see how this current spat unfolds; I wonder if they really do have a plan, besides "beat them up and see if they go away."
Personally, if I wanted to stop the rocket attacks, I'd set up a factory that makes exact duplicates of what Hamas is making. Then I'd make lots and lots of them. When Hamas fires a rocket as Israel, I'd fire back 100. Simple 100:1 logic. When Hamas starts screaming about civilian casualties, I'd say "we have the same guidance system you use; you fire at us, we fire at you." Simple, clear, and easy to communicate.
The whole "disproportionate response" and "civilian casualty" thing is simply because Israel is using smart bombs and Hamas is not. Israel is being held to a higher standard. So, drop the standard; level the playing field. If people complain about the 100:1 ratio, ask them what an appropriate ratio would be. 1:1? How would that stop anyone from being aggressive? What's fair? Israel could easily manufacture 10,000:1 so 100:1 seems quite fair to me. A thousand of those stupid rocket tubes would probably still cost less than a single smart-bomb. If the technology is identical on either side, then peaceniks can only quibble about the numbers, not the intent or results. Even if the Israelis stuck to a 1:1 ratio, they would still be far more effective: more of Gaza is in range, and I expect the Israelis would be better at the trigonometry of aiming.
Right now, the key to survival in Gaza is to stay away from anything Hamas. If the rockets coming in were as unguided as those going out, the only way to ensure survival would be to stop the idiots in Hamas that are launching in the first place.
Israel: Boycott, Divest, Sanction
It's time. Long past time. The best strategy to end the increasingly
bloody occupation is for Israel to become the target of the kind of
global movement that put an end to apartheid in South Africa.
In July 2005 a huge coalition of Palestinian groups laid out plans to do
just that. They called on "people of conscience all over the world to
impose broad boycotts and implement divestment initiatives against
Israel similar to those applied to South Africa in the apartheid era."
The campaign Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions—BDS for short—
Every day that Israel pounds Gaza brings more converts to the BDS cause,
and talk of cease-fires is doing little to slow the momentum. Support is
even emerging among Israeli Jews. In the midst of the assault roughly
500 Israelis, dozens of them well-known artists and scholars, sent a
letter to foreign ambassadors stationed in Israel. It calls for "the
adoption of immediate restrictive measures and sanctions" and draws a
clear parallel with the antiapartheid struggle. "The boycott on South
Africa was effective, but Israel is handled with kid gloves.… This
international backing must stop."
Yet even in the face of these clear calls, many of us still can't go
there. The reasons are complex, emotional and understandable. And they
simply aren't good enough. Economic sanctions are the most effective
tools in the nonviolent arsenal. Surrendering them verges on active
complicity. Here are the top four objections to the BDS strategy,
followed by counterarguments.
1. Punitive measures will alienate rather than persuade Israelis. The
world has tried what used to be called "constructive engagement." It has
failed utterly. Since 2006 Israel has been steadily escalating its
criminality: expanding settlements, launching an outrageous war against
Lebanon and imposing collective punishment on Gaza through the brutal
blockade. Despite this escalation, Israel has not faced punitive
measures—quite the opposite. The weapons and $3 billion in annual aid
that the US sends to Israel is only the beginning. Throughout this key
period, Israel has enjoyed a dramatic improvement in its diplomatic,
cultural and trade relations with a variety of other allies. For
instance, in 2007 Israel became the first non–Latin American country to
sign a free-trade deal with Mercosur. In the first nine months of 2008,
Israeli exports to Canada went up 45 percent. A new trade deal with the
European Union is set to double Israel's exports of processed food. And
on December 8, European ministers "upgraded" the EU-Israel Association
Agreement, a reward long sought by Jerusalem.
It is in this context that Israeli leaders started their latest war:
confident they would face no meaningful costs. It is remarkable that
over seven days of wartime trading, the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange's
flagship index actually went up 10.7 percent. When carrots don't work,
sticks are needed.
2. Israel is not South Africa. Of course it isn't. The relevance of the
South African model is that it proves that BDS tactics can be effective
when weaker measures (protests, petitions, back-room lobbying) have
failed. And there are indeed deeply distressing echoes of South African
apartheid in the occupied territories: the color-coded IDs and travel
permits, the bulldozed homes and forced displacement, the settler-only
roads. Ronnie Kasrils, a prominent South African politician, said that
the architecture of segregation that he saw in the West Bank and Gaza
was "infinitely worse than apartheid." That was in 2007, before Israel
began its full-scale war against the open-air prison that is Gaza.
3. Why single out Israel when the United States, Britain and other
Western countries do the same things in Iraq and Afghanistan? Boycott is
not a dogma; it is a tactic. The reason the BDS strategy should be tried
against Israel is practical: in a country so small and trade-dependent,
it could actually work.
4. Boycotts sever communication; we need more dialogue, not less. This
one I'll answer with a personal story. For eight years, my books have
been published in Israel by a commercial house called Babel. But when I
published The Shock Doctrine, I wanted to respect the boycott. On the
advice of BDS activists, including the wonderful writer John Berger, I
contacted a small publisher called Andalus. Andalus is an activist
press, deeply involved in the anti-occupation movement and the only
Israeli publisher devoted exclusively to translating Arabic writing into
Hebrew. We drafted a contract that guarantees that all proceeds go to
Andalus's work, and none to me. In other words, I am boycotting the
Israeli economy but not Israelis.
Coming up with our modest publishing plan required dozens of phone
calls, e-mails and instant messages, stretching from Tel Aviv to
Ramallah to Paris to Toronto to Gaza City. My point is this: as soon as
you start implementing a boycott strategy, dialogue increases
dramatically. And why wouldn't it? Building a movement requires endless
communicating, as many in the antiapartheid struggle well recall. The
argument that supporting boycotts will cut us off from one another is
particularly specious given the array of cheap information technologies
at our fingertips. We are drowning in ways to rant at one another across
national boundaries. No boycott can stop us.
Just about now, many a proud Zionist is gearing up for major
point-scoring: don't I know that many of those very high-tech toys come
from Israeli research parks, world leaders in infotech? True enough, but
not all of them. Several days into Israel's Gaza assault, Richard
Ramsey, the managing director of a British telecom specializing in
voice-over-internet services, sent an email to the Israeli tech firm
MobileMax. "As a result of the Israeli government action in the last few
days we will no longer be in a position to consider doing business with
yourself or any other Israeli company."
Ramsey says that his decision wasn't political; he just didn't want to
lose customers. "We can't afford to lose any of our clients," he
explains, "so it was purely commercially defensive."
It was this kind of cold business calculation that led many companies to
pull out of South Africa two decades ago. And it's precisely the kind of
calculation that is our most realistic hope of bringing justice, so long
denied, to Palestine.

Gaza is Al Jazeera English. The station isn't available in North America

Obama must lead an international boycott against Isreal and failure to do so
will completely destroy the Amerikkkan economy because there are forces in
motion here that these whimpy earthlings have no understanding of!!
Stop the Israeli kiddie killers!
Join the international boycott against Nazi Israel because all Israeli
products are snake oil mixed with the blood of dead Palestinian children
Arithmetics of Disdain,
It is noteworthy that the State Department's list of global terrorist incidents for 2002 worldwide failed to list the car bombing attack on Hobeika and his party.... But Listed a small Hand Grenade thrown at a U.S. franchise in the middle of the night when the place was closed, empty and no one was hurt? The White House wanted to ensure the terror attack on Mr. Elie Hobeika, and his party of three young men with families, was censored from the report. The reason was simple: this attack ultimately had Washington's and Israel's fingerprints all over it....Given the actual climate of political cacophonies, deceit, deception and intrigue in Lebanon of today, Lebanon of the LIARS of NEOCONVILLE, it has been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt, that Mr. Elie Hobeika was a visionary Leader and a Hero.Lebanon will probably never know a Leader of this caliber.My dear friend ELIE, you have been reborn on January 24th 2002.Heroes are reborn the day of their Martyrdom .ELIE, you are more alive today, than many living political corpses,walking and talking in Beirut Lebanon every day, until resurrection.At a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act"- G. Orwell A U.S. intelligence source revealed to me, that in the world of intelligence "carve out" subcontracts such confusion is often the case with "plausible deniability" being a foremost concern in ALL covert operations, especially in Elie Hobeika's case on January 24th 2002, & Hariri's Feb. 14th 2005... Notwithstanding Jacques CHIRAC's gesticulations and false sorrow for the loss of his "friend" Rafic HARIRI, he has been regularly organizing official meetings in Paris for Asef Shawkat with his services to secure SYRIA for and with Assef Shawkat,....
The propensity of governments to create secrets out of the obvious is one of the more tedious aspects of international relations. But this secret is not obvious, and it is not trivial. Though it is true, and I hold the KEY.
Fabrications, LIES , False Flag operations, CIA and MOSSAD.It has been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt,that ALL stories which came out immediately after the Assassination of Mr.Elie Hobeika, Fares Sweidan,Dimitri Ajram, and Waleed El-Zein, were completely &utterly FALSE. It was a pure fabrication by the KILLERS;AND the CIA'S Foreign Denial and Deception Committee (FDDC),to cover their tracks. Standard operating procedure...101I mean by that, the stories relating to Elie trying to find IMAD Moughnieh, the alleged attempted contacts with CIA, MOSSAD, etc. , the missing Iranian diplomats, the 9 most wanted by CIA, whose names have been circulated then,on purpose by CIA, to 7 ministers in the Lebanese Government, etc. [names which CIA has completely forgotten now,one of them has proven since to be a CIA asset himself...] ALL these were a tortuous web of lies to cover the tracks of the Murderers of CIA, MOSSAD, and their Syro-Lebanese tools.Special ongoing Investigation.Oct. , 2007- On September 15, 2001, just four days after the 9-11 attacks,CIA Director George Tenet provided President [sic] Bush with a Top Secret"Worldwide Attack Matrix"-a virtual license to kill targets deemed to be a threat to the United States in some 80 countries around the world. The Tenet plan, which was subsequently approved by Bush, essentially reversed the executive orders of four previous U.S. administrations that expressly prohibited political assassinations. Mr. Elie Hobeika will be the first target of the US administration, to pave the way for its Iraq Invasion .It planned to directly control the "Energy Basin" and ALL the OIL Transportation routes,from Pipelines to the Maritime avenues and choke points in the Gulf areas, and from central Asia to Mauritania and beyond.But most of all, Mr. Elie Hobeika will be made to pay dearly with his life,for daring to change his politics and views, after experiencing first hand,THE BRUTALITY OF THE ISRAELIS AND THE AMERICANS ,and their CULTURE OF VIOLENCE , Intrigue, murder & very bad Politics.The BUSH+CHENEY Energy MATRIX, coming to a place near you SOON.The awakening is near. It will be like a hurricane passing with untold fury.Mark my Words: .....
THE assassination of yet another Lebanese MP — the seventh anti-Syrian figure to be murdered since the slaying of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri in February 2005 — has brought Lebanon to the brink of a catastrophe. It threatens to be even more devastating than the 1975-90 civil war. The country’s survival as an independent unified state is now at stake. The divide between anti-Syrian and pro-Syrian blocs is now unbridgeable.
As to fears of fresh civil war, it is already a reality. With ministers and pro-government MPs being assassinated, the government even more besieged than the one in Iraq, surviving MPs in hiding, who can talk of political normality? Lebanon is at war with itself. How long before that translates into general armed conflict is anyone’s guess. It would be naive to imagine that Ghanem’s killing will be the last. The anti-Syrian majority in Parliament is now razor-thin. Those behind this and the other killings are obviously determined to bring down the government of Prime Minister Fouad Siniora by the physical elimination of its parliamentary majority.
There can be no doubt that more assassinations are planned and will be attempted. If that happens and the Lebanese government falls as a result and is replaced by a pro-Syrian government, it will trigger a wave of retaliatory violence — against Hezbollah, against the Shiite community and against pro-Syrian figures. Open warfare waits in the wings.
Syrian protestations that it had nothing to do with Antoine Ghanem’s murder and the others may be true. It is quite possible that the killings are wholly internal, the work of pro-Syrian elements inside Lebanon who want power back. There are certainly some who do not want a new president elected to replace Emile Lahoud. It is even possible that Israelis were behind the killings, intent on destabilization and making Syria appear the villain — possible but unlikely; they have much to lose if a Hezbollah-dominated, pro-Syrian government were installed in Beirut.
The problem is that very few believe Syria’s innocence. They ask the question “who benefits?” and, in the case of each assassination, come up with the same answer: Damascus and its clients in Lebanon. That belief robs Syria of having an acceptable role in Lebanon for a long time to come. The majority of Lebanese want their sovereignty to be absolute; with no interference from anyone — be they Syrian, Israeli, Iranian, American or whatever. That dream, however, is being car-bombed to oblivion....
Forget what you've heard about objectivity. Not even cameras are objective. To nearly everything you analyze (and report on) you bring notions based on - but not limited to - your class, gender, skin color, ethnicity, native language, upbringing, education, religion, culture, playground experiences, political orientation, the influences of people you trust and things about the way our brains work that nobody even knows yet. Like sponges, we absorb stereotypes and clichés about other people's attitudes and behavior which skews our perceptions in ways we don't even realize. So don't fool yourself into believing in objectivity. The best you can achieve is fairness, and that's a tough path to stick to as well.
And then we'd have a talk about the textbook description of objectivity, which is that "every story has two sides," a pernicious dualistic myth that profoundly undermines what is supposed to be a search for truth....
The even greater danger with these dark clouds forming over Lebanon is for the region. With Syria’s links to Iran, Iran’s links to Hezbollah, rising tension over Iran’s alleged nuclear ambitions, there is a chain explosion waiting to happen. An Israeli attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities, an American attack on Iran, a Syrian attack on Israel, more Lebanese assassinations: One could trigger another. The temperature is fast rising on the Middle East’s northern rim — and it is near flash point.
Dear Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee,
http://judiciary.senate.gov/ , thanks for your
great work defending the USA Constitution, with
"EQUAL JUSTICE UNDER LAW" ,Separation
between Churches and State and Free Speech,
and my questions are:1) since most likely the Senate
will approve Michael Mukasey as the new A.G.of
the United States, and since as you know,he is an
orthodox Israeli-American and with dual citizenship,
American and Israeli,
http://phillyfreedom.blogspot.com/ , NYT Sept.
18.07 "Washington outsider with many sides"
for info on Mukasey as Judge of the WTC-
Insurance 9/11 case , will he respect other
religions exactly thesame as his?2) since he is an
ordained rabbi within his orthodox community,will his partners get treatment better or different in any way
from the one you or I or anybody else would get from
him in the United States of America?
3) what happens to all the Security Contracts
and Military deals he and his son Marc are
doing with the Companies and Interests of
Giuliani Partners and other associates ?
4) what happens with all the deals they
worked on in his son's law firm,
Bracewell&Giuliani?since Bracewell&Giuliani has
offices in the South Asia, like in Kazakhstan,a big
oil supplier ruled by an extreme undemocratic leader,
Nazarbayev, will the Mukasey's and Giuliani's
get special deals? with no supervision? political
donations? will the actual law firm of Mukasey
get special deals too? will anybody ask ? or will
they just say yes :blindly?
5) Michael Mukasey
and his son Marc are strong AIPAC supporters ,
but will anyone in the Senate ask anything about their relationship to these political-military-religious-financial
and foreign groups? we know that no one
will,but is that right? isn't special treatment?
6) Chairman,this powerful military-religious-
financial group , of which Michael Mukasey is
a leader, will have unprecedented influence in
the Justice Dpt. ,White House and Congress,
not to mention over the average taxpayer,
and since many members of the orthodox
community to which he belongs are diamond,
gold,jewelry,insurance ,real estate and tobacco
dealers and wholesalers while claiming Tax
Exemption due to religious condition,will his
appointment stop all the Investigations of the
IRS and Justice Dpt.as well as Commerce,etc.?
and back taxes?
do average Americans have a guarantee of
when we start getting prosecuted for asking
questions,what recourse do we have ? any ?
and since orthodox Mukasey will most likely
install many members of his organized religious
group into office,will we be forced to request
help from the same community like his with
the special privilege?7) Judge Mukasey was in
charge of the 9/11/01 Trial case between the
leaseholders of the WTC,SIlverstein-Goldman-
Pacific-etc., and the 23 Insurance Companies these
new leaseholders called just days before 9/11 to
open dozens of policies over everything in
the Towers, services,leases,businesses,contracts,
profits,hardware,you name it,their premiums
were millions of dollars a week, didn't make
any business sense,unless they knew what was
going to happen a few days later ,and
everybody in N.Y. and around the world
was waiting for answers from the Trial ,
and then Judge Mukasey put a lid on the
Trial and no news came out, NOTHING !!!!
and everybody asked why ?, if it is a patriotic
case,why no news at all ?why the secrecy ?
why Judge Mukesay didn't want anybody in
America to know everything about Silverstein
and his dozens of policies? , then we also found
out that then N.Y.State A.G. Eliot Spitzer
wrote a Friend of the Court brief supporting
Silverstein,the AG siding with one of the
parties!, and the Judge and Spitzer started to
push the Insurance Companies to settle for 2
events,a total of 7 billion dollars to Silverstein
and his partners, many of the Insurance
Companies refused because they knew
something was not right and eventually they
settled on 4.6 billion dollars for Silverstein ,
but we still never got any details in any
newspaper ,radio or TV,NOTHING ! I WOULD
LIKE TO ASK JUDGE MUKASEY WHY ? ,
but we do know that no one will ask him
anything in D.C., he and his Orthodox
Congregation partners rule,after all they all
go to Israel together and share Religious
Ceremonies with Kissinger, Chertoff,
Bloomberg ,Silverstein,etc., and yet we hear
S. Schumer and other neocons saying to the
media that they want to learn more from
the man !8) Chairman,this new A.G. will have
unprecedented influence over President Bush
and VP Cheney,since he is the only one that
can prosecute the 2,is it wise to have a
member of a foreign religious-political group
having so much power over the President and
the Vice-President of the United States of
America ? safe ? smart? patriotic?We know that MR..Mukasey was selected by
Joshua Bolten and approved by Senator
Schumer and others,so since "they" run
Washington,it's a done deal ,hearing Senator
Schumer telling the Media how wonderful
Mukasey is and that his nomination cuts
down on pressure on the White House, do
they extorted a deal from the President:
Our orthodox candidate and we stop asking
for White House U.S. Attorney papers and
information?is that why Bush looks so depressed?
is that how Schumer,Bolton, Emanuel,Specter,
Lieberman and Bloomberg are going to run
because clearly with Mukasey as A.G.,they
run this country lock,stock and barrel,it's
that how our Constitutional Rights end ?
Extortion of the President of the United
hearing Schumer and Specter, it's clear that it
was all about getting the Christians out of the
Justice Dpt. and installing the neocon orthodox
in, is that how they do it ?A partner of Mukasey
as adviser to Giuliani , the neocon Pedhoretz,
has repeatedly pushed with Pr.Bush to bomb Iran,
to attack, and since Sen. Lieberman and Sen. Kyl
are pushing to brand Iran's Military a terrorist
Organization, is this the beginning of a concerted
effort to push for war? it's important to remember
all this , because in 2002 and 2003 all these
neocons with Sen.Schumer,S.Coleman,
were pushing for war every day on the media
and yet now they are attacking anyone that
mentions it, they are warning elected officials
like R.Moran that to mention these facts is
anti-this and anti-that and "watch it ", they
are bullying any one that mentions what happen
before the USA went to Iraq,and worst: they
insist now on their media that only Bush-
Cheney-Rice-Rumsfeld are responsible , that
no one else pushed for this war:
THEY ARE RE-WRITING HISTORY!!! and
it looks like its not the first time, it sounds
like they always pull the same trick: they push
for war,financed with their Hedge Funds and
then with the media they erase any links to
themselves, this is criminal; to push for war
and then to hide and blamethe Christians
only,that's evil and SHOWS LOTS OF
WEAKNESS ON THE PART OF THE USA,
THIS IS A DISASTER FOR THIS GREAT
COUNTRY! to confirm an organized
religious-political-military from a foreign sect
and laws to Attorney General is
un-Constitutional,illegal, un-American and
goes against the core of the USA values,
thousands died to defend the USA
Constitution from foreign religions, how can
the Senate now approve a religious leader ?
will they even ask this question? will they
commit High Treason ?when you look at these
incompetent and criminal decisions against the
Rule of Law and the Declaration of Independence,
how can Taxpayers petition the Government
for any rights?Thanks for your great work defending
America from foreign and domestic enemies,
in my humble opinion, this situation
looks to me like occupation and foreign control,
and to you ?America knows that George Washington,
Lincoln and all the Founding Fathers would be proud of
your defense of the USA Constitution against
High Treason and High Crimes,
NO COMMENT ....... "For Now..."
Saakashvili Ordered me to Get Rid of Patarkatsishvili’ – Okruashvili
Ex-Defense Minister Irakli Okruashvili has made yet another startling allegation against his former ally, President Saakashvili. The president, he said, had personally ordered him to liquidate Badri Patarkatsishvili, a business tycoon.
Speaking live on Imedi TV’s talk show On the Air late on September 25, Okruashvili said: “Saakashvili told me that we should get rid of him [Patarkatsishvili], in the same way as happened to Rafik Hariri, the former Lebanese prime minister, who was killed in a car bomb attack.”
“In July 2005,” Okruashvili said, “Saakashvili asked me: what did I think about getting rid of one person… - Badri Patarkatsishvili? And then he [Saakashvili] outlined a very detailed plan on how to get rid of him.”
Okruashvili continued: “It was absolutely clear to me that it was a trap for me as well, because they would have gotten rid of me as well after getting rid of Patarkatsishvili.”
He said in response he told Saakashvili that he needed time to think about it.
“Meanwhile, I met with one person who at that time was working with the Americans and told him about the president’s proposal,” Okruashvili said. “I did it in the hope that the information would have been passed on to the Americans… It was Zaza Gogava [now Chief-of-Staff of the Georgian armed forces] However it did not work. Because after a month Saakashvili again repeated his demand about getting rid of Patarkatsishvili.”
“Then I met with another person in Turkey, whose identity I can not reveal. He also has close links with the Americans. He's not a Georgian citizen. I told him about Saakashvili’s plan. This information, it seemed, was delivered to the Americans, because since then Saakashvili never talked with me about getting rid of Patarkatsishvili.”President Saakashvili, who is currently in New York for the UN General Assembly Session, has yet to comment on his former ally’s allegations.
Irakli Okruashvili, ex-defense minister and once President Saakashvili’s closest ally, has accused the president of engaing in “anti-state steps” and “ordering murders.”
In his first public statement since he quit the government last November, Okruashvili also finally announced the launch of his political party – Movement for United Georgia. He refused to take question after his ten-minute speech, but said he planned to give further details and “answer all questions” during a TV appearance planned for later on Tuesday.
“I will definitely speak more on these crimes, which were masterminded by the authorities,” he said. Okruashvili added: “I was ordered by Saakashvili several times to liquidate certain influential and important people, which I refused to do.” He gave no further details.
There has been considerable speculation that “a war of compromising materials” would precede Okruashvili’s political comeback and the unveiling of his new opposition party.
Okruashvili said at the news conference in his party's headquarters in downtown Tbilisi that “fascist trends” and “anti-state steps undertaken by the authorities” had convinced him and his co-thinkers to set up the new movement. He also suggested that it hadn't been easy to launch the party.
People, he said, “are terrorized” because of “repression.” “Those with dissenting opinions are deemed ‘enemies of the state’ and the government is refusing to hold a dialogue with them,” he said.
This, he said, had made it difficult to convince people to engage in public life.
Okruashvili said that the anti-corruption campaign was “unreal.” The prisons, he said, were full of petty criminals, while corruption continued to thrive among “top level officials, Saakashvili’s inner circle and his family.”
“Three years ago when I was Interior Minister,” Okruashvili said, “I arrested Temur Alasania, the president’s uncle, for extortion of USD 200,000. I, however, had to release him on the president’s insistence.”
He also accused the authorities, and personally Saakashvili, of, as he put it, “a deliberate anti-Orthodox Church campaign” and “of fighting against Georgian traditions and values.”
“Saakashvili has an inner hatred of the Georgian Orthodox Church,” Okruashvili said. “The Georgian church is the most respected institution in Georgia. [Because of this] he [Saakashvili] perceives the Church as his main competitor. While in his inner circle, I often heard him talking about splitting the Church and discrediting the clergy.”
He also said that there was “a clear attempt” by the Saakashvili administration “to re-write Georgia’s history, as if nothing Georgian existed before the Rose Revolution, and everything new is being created by Saakashvili.”
Okruashvili also made an obvious attempt to appeal to other walks of life by saying that the older generation, those over 50, had been “neglected and humiliated.”
Internally displaced persons from Abkhazia and South Ossetia, he said, “were not regarded as human beings during ex-President Shevardnadze’s regime and this trend has continued in the Saakashvili regime as well.”
He also criticized the authorities’ policies towards the secessionist regions.
“We were one step away from reclaiming one of our lost territories,” Okruashvili said, apparently referring to South Ossetia.
Several months before his resignation from the cabinet, Okruashvili said that he had planned to celebrate the 2007 New Year in Tskhinvali, the capital of breakaway South Ossetia. Commentators said that Saakashvili’s decision to move Okruashvili last November from the Defense Ministry to the Ministry of Economy was largely because of Okruashvili’s perceived hawkish stance on South Ossetia.
In his speech on September 25, Okruashvili said that “only Saakashvili’s weakness, inability and fear” had foiled plans to reclaim the secessionist region. He also said Saakashvili was too weak to take an unspecified “historic decision.”
He also criticized Tbilisi’s decision to create the provisional South Ossetia administration, led by Dimitri Sanakoev. Okruashvili said Sanakoev had no respect and authority among the population of the region. He also said that installing Sanakoev was “an imaginary attempt” to unite the country.
Okruashvili explained his decision to “quietly” quit the government without voicing his discontent was because of, as he put it, his sense of “civil responsibility.”
“Army officers, who are still my friends, asked me to do it quietly,” he said and added that by doing so he had denied the country’s enemies an opportunity to speculate on a split within the government.
Okruashvili admitted that he shared “the responsibility for some mistakes because I was also once part of this government.”
“I, however, have done nothing but good for my country when in government,” he added. “So any attempt to discredit me will fail.”
Towards the end of his speech, he implied that he might have presidential ambitions.
“Georgia will be united only if it has a president who doesn't humiliate and insult its own people,” Okruashvili said.
Throughout his speech, Okruashvili's fellow party members stood beside him. They include: lawmakers Tea Tlashadze, Ketevan Makharashvili, Koka Guntsadze, Gia Tortladze and Gia Tsagareishvili; former Deputy Defense Minister Levan Nikolaishvili and a lawyer, Eka Beselia.
Two former journalists from Rustavi 2 TV station, Nana Lezhava and Natia Lazashvili, were also there. Both quit the TV station shortly after Rustavi 2 changed hands last November following Okruashvili’s resignation.
