Women Try to Stop Babies Being Taken Into Care By Fleeing to Spain


A pregnant British woman has fled to Spain with her parents to prevent her unborn baby being taken into care by social services, despite an offer by the child’s grandparents to foster her.

Megan Coote, 21, is one of two British women who have escaped to Spain after threats by Suffolk social services to remove their babies. The infants were born last week two days apart and are now neighbours.

Their cases reflect what John Hemming, a Lib Dem MP and chairman of Justice for Families, believes is a growing phenomenon. “It is clear that nothing is being done to sort the family courts out and so more people are thinking of simply emigrating,” he said.'

The Alien Abduction Phenomenon

Dad Branded A Paedophile Over Picture Of Son


Kevin Geraghty-Shewan had taken four-year-old Ben to the Bridges Shopping Centre in Sunderland to spend £10 the boy had been given as a treat.

He told Sky News: "Ben spotted a children's ride which had a train on it and wanted to have a go because he's obsessed with trains.

"When he got on my wife suggested we take a picture of him.

"I took the picture on my phone and suddenly this security guard came up and told me it wasn't allowed because I could be a paedophile.

"I told him Ben was my own son. But he said I couldn't prove it. He said there is a real problem with paedophiles and that if I didn't like it, he'd call the manager.'

Bad Word Banned

Apartheid is an ugly word that just shouldn’t be used, Progressive Conservative MPP Peter Shurman said Thursday.

And he got all of Queen’s Park to agree.

Shurman, the member from Thornhill, moved a resolution to condemn the now annual event on Canadian campuses known as Israeli Apartheid Week,

“I want to be clear about what it is I’m trying to do,” Shurman said. “I want the name changed. It’s that simple. It’s just wrong.”

Shurman said he had no objection to people criticizing Israel, or debating the thorny issues of Palestinians and the occupied territories.

“My problem is the name,” he said. “Israeli Apartheid Week is not dialogue, it’s a monologue. The name is hateful, it is odious and that’s not how things should be in my Ontario. It’s a term that frankly I’m sick of hearing. Get rid of this word apartheid.”

The resolution passed with unanimous support from both the Liberals and the New Democratic Party.'

Obama Appoints Federal Reserve Operative to Debt Panel

Former Federal Reserve Vice Chair, CFR and Trilateral Commission member Alice Rivlin.

It can’t get more surrealistic. Obama has appointed a former member of the primary organization responsible for socking future generations with crushing debt to a government panel ostensibly designed to address that engineered debt.

Obama created the debt commission last week by signing an executive order. During the dog and pony show otherwise known as the election, Obama promised not to rule by authoritarian Roman decree.

“President Barack Obama rounded out his appointments to his new deficit commission, naming former Federal Reserve Vice Chair Alice Rivlin and three others to serve on the panel,” reports the Associated Press.'

European Public Figures Get Gag Power Over Press


The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) is currently fast-tracking a landmark case, brought by Max Mosley, to tighten UK privacy laws. Mark Stephens, a lawyer acting for a group of media and free speech organisations opposing Mr Mosley in court, believes that the extraordinary pace with which it is proceeding suggests that the judges are about to rule in the former Formula One boss's favour.

That would mean a change in the law that would force the press to contact anyone that they are intending to run a story about to warn them if it could potentially breach their privacy, giving public figures a chance to gag newspapers before publication.'

The England I Love, & Shall Forever Love by Mike James

While the British people are being led by their easily-tweaked noses into yet another sham general election in which the choice they make is severely circumscribed by an evil system of usury and the prospect of no change in the circumstances of a people befuddled by decades of sinister, police-state, Tavistock Institute conditioning, almost nobody is asking:

"For how much longer must we tolerate living in a nation beholden to only special interest groups, International Jewish Finance, a "Punch & Judy" show behind which the British Crown's servitude to The City of London has prostituted Britons to a life of indentured class-riddled servitude and without a chance in hell of extricating ourselves from the demonic Soviet European Union?"

The problem lies in the constitutional make-up of the United Kingdom, an administrative construct that serves only the obscenely rich and parasitic classes, and which treats its 'subject-citizens' as mere chattels of the Crown, now nothing more than a pimping agency for the Brussels' elites who see in the English, Scots and Welsh nothing more than stupefied 'white trash' to be cash-raped whenever a French bureaucrat feels the need for an inflationary orgasm.

No doubt the Scots and Welsh will soon enough secede from the now increasingly irrelevant United Kingdom and go their own way, choosing instead to scrounge vast subsidies from the European Union (the long-suffering and equally impoverished German taxpayer) instead of the equally bamboozled, ripped-off English working and middle classes. I encourage them to do so. And I wish them well.

Shorn of our obligations to Scotland and Wales, the time is ripe for a New English Dispensation. I speak not of a 'Little England' adrift as a minor province in the new world order of international finance and the arbitrary dictates of the European Union and the United Nations, but of a resurgently vigorous and proudly free egalitarian republican England.

We, as ordinary Englishmen always tolerated the overbearing arrogance of those who deemed themselves our social superiors by dint of birth; for despite their supercilious arrogance and chinless lack of intelligence, they, the intellectually retarded toffs educated at Eton and Rugby, at least provided us with a buffer against the inclinations of international socialist traitors (such as the Jewish-Nazi Fifth-Columnist David Miliband) to sell out The Rights of Englishmen.

They served their purpose, made their stash and fucked off while the going was good. All they have left us with is a family of intellectually diminutive social parasites who belittle us with their fantasises of 'royalty' and a political kleptocracy dominated by treasonous system parties, whether Labour, Conservative or Liberal-Democrat.

The Windsors were never one of our own kind. Held in thrall by the Money Power that came to dominate British commerce in the wake of the so-called 'Glorious Revolution', a coup d'etat of the super-rich landed gentry against a monarchical system that was highly critical of illegal Judaic banking practices, the dim-witted spawn of sodomised, public-school educated sub-humans who set themselves above the inherent intellectual superiority of the English working classes were able to somehow convince good-natured patriots that they were not the vermin prodigy of the syphilitic Rothschild spermatozoa.

We, my gentle fellow Englishman, good-hearted and magnanimously trusting souls that we are, have been taken for fools. We always gave our masters the benefit of the doubt. We willingly sacrificed the lives of our children upon the altar of their blood-lust for greed, profit and power.

Now, my friend, where do you find yourself? Is England a place called 'home'; and if this be home, do you kindle by the fading light of day a candle within the heart of your being knowing that the light that warms your heart is of a constancy that cannot be expunged by the forces of darkness?

I have watched you from afar for the 17 years I have lived in Germany and I cry for you. I have seen you sink into an alcohol and drug-fuelled culture of sleaze, decadence, pornography, pop trivia and casual violence: submerged in a tidal wave of mass immigration and political correctness.

I have witnessed how you lost your senses and grew obese on the promises of easy credit and gorged yourself upon cheap, mind-numbing entertainment, abandoning your higher intellectual values and the ingrained moral integrity that was yours as of right as a freeborn-Englishman to a corporate parasitic system that pandered to your ever-growing addiction for instant gratification.

I remember you as children, as teenagers and as young adults. You were never saints, and God forbid that you could ever be so, for it was always in your nature to be natural rebels. I loved you. I fought you. You broke my heart, pummelled me to the ground, caused me to graze my knees, opened old wounds and left me broken and bloodied. Yet you lifted me to my feet and gave me hope. Your wit and your laughter raised my spirits to the roof-beams. You were a race of tough, uncompromising and yet passionately forgiving men and women.

I cry for the England that was lost. Yet I cry more for the England that can be regained should only a handful of brave men and women stand up and fight, but of whom there is little to bespeak.

I have travelled the world and seen things that few would care to experience. I have ventured into unknown terrain and have been afforded opportunities far beyond what I could ever have possibly envisaged on the soil of my birth.

Yet I yearn to return to my homeland. My England.

I was raised a Geordie, born on the banks of the River Tyne in Jarrow in 1959 among a caring and gentle folk and raised, some six years later on the western shores of fierce and fighting Lancashire. By the time I reached the age of 25, I had visited and worked in every nook and cranny of that blessed, any yet sadly accursed land: The Fylde, London, Dorset, Bristol, Oxfordshire, Yorkshire, Southampton, Norfolk, Manchester, Essex, Weymouth, Blackpool, Cumbria, Humberside, Durham, Kent, Devon and a myriad of villages and hamlets that are to me now simply names obscured by the mists that enclosed the pastures I spied upon each and every waking morning.

England in the 1980s had its faults. But I was free. Free to hate, with compassion, or to love, with abandon. Free to sport a black-eye for my sins or awake with lipstick on my cheeks for my charms. Free to be what God Almighty awarded me as the most cherished lottery ticket in life: a natural-born rebellious Englishman.

I want that England back again.

An England free of the impositions of the Soviet European Union, the all-watching surveillance police-state, the deception and charade of 'democracy' and the two-party (one-party) system, the sickening and demeaning worship of celebrities and the imbecilic 'royal' family, the stranglehold of international usury and the corrupt banking system, the media-enforced obeisance to the secular religion of multiculturalism, and the all-pervasive hopelessness of a people born in God's Chosen Land whose urgent wish is to hurriedly leave for distant shores all that was bequeathed to them as of right.

You think I sit alone in Germany and have forgotten all that was honourable and decent from the land from whence I hailed? No, my fellow compatriots, I think of you constantly; sometimes with pity and remorse, and yet more often with disgust for the level to which you have allowed yourselves to descend.

At the next general election you will vote for either Cameron-Brown or Brown-Cameron. Most of you, I hope, will stay at home and demonstrate your contempt for democracy. Nothing will ever change. There is not one ounce of national revolutionary blood left in the veins of the Greatest Race that ever lived. Why is it that My People have become so comfortably numb?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tkJNyQfAprY

You truly are the scum of the earth: the most gullible and naive of all the European races. Now it is my desire to leave the European Union altogether.

I fought. I was arrested, sectioned, imprisoned. I made a stand. You didn't. And I therefore give up on you.

But I still love you, and always will.

So just shout.

Malachi Martin -- Satan Enthroned in Vatican?


Former vatican insider Malachi Martin's asserted that a "Satanic Enthronement ceremony" took place in the Vatican in 1963.

The result of this ritual meant the Vatican manifested what clerics referred to as the 'Superforce."

Martin had first made reference to a diabolic rite held in Rome in his 1990 non-fiction best-seller about geopolitics and the Vatican, The Keys of This Blood, p 632 where he wrote:

"Most frighteningly for [Pope] John Paul [II], he had come up against the irremovable presence of a malign strength in his own Vatican and in certain bishops' chancelleries. It was what knowledgeable Churchmen called the 'superforce.' Rumors, always difficult to verify, tied its installation to the beginning of Pope Paul VI's reign in 1963. Indeed Paul had alluded somberly to 'the smoke of Satan, which has entered the Sanctuary'... an oblique reference to an enthronement ceremony by Satanists in the Vatican.

Besides, the incidence of Satanic pedophilia --rites and practices-- was already documented among certain bishops and priests as widely dispersed as Turin, in Italy, and South Carolina, in the United States. The cultic acts of satanic pedophilia are considered by professionals to be the culmination of the Fallen Archangel's rites."..'

The Brits Want Us in Another War

After all, Blair joined Bush in the Iraq charade (Blair insisted that “history would vindicate” them, but history isn’t smiling.) So now a British “expert” demands that Obama bail out the Brits again and live up to the requirements of a mysterious “special relationship” that has never been put into treaty form, publicly debated, and given the advice and consent of the Senate as required by the Constitution. “The core of the problem is a simple inability to recognize and support our friends over adversaries,” pouts the Brit, who wants the US to blow a hole in its hull so we can follow England’s sinking ship.'

Indian Law Would Make Criticizing GM Crops an Imprisonable Offense


Criticising Genetically Modified (GM) products could land you in jail — if the draconian draft Biotechnology Regulatory Authority Bill (BRAB) of 2009, which will be tabled in the current session of the parliament by the UPA government, is passed.

In an unprecedented muzzle on the right to freedom of speech of the citizen, Chapter 13 section 63 of the draft bill says, “Whoever, without any evidence or scientific record misleads the public about the safety of the organisms and products…shall be punished with imprisonment for a term that shall not be less than six months but which may extend to one year and with fine which may extend to two lakh rupees or with both.” The BRAI Bill drafted by the department of bio-technology under the Ministry of Science and Technology comes on the heels of a moratorium on Bt Brinjal announced by the Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh.'

Now Water Will Cost More in the Summer


Water is set to cost more during the summer following the introduction of a controversial seasonal tariff, it emerged yesterday.

Households in Sussex, Kent, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight will be the first to face the price hikes between June and September after Southern Water announced new rates for later this year.

Water watchdog OFWAT confirmed at least three other suppliers were also looking at seasonal tariffs as a way of encouraging people to use less water to prevent shortages.

But consumer groups raised concerns over the impact of the charges on families with low incomes and large households.'

Leaked UN Documents Reveal Plan For “Green World Order” By 2012


Leaked policy documents reveal that the United Nations plans to create a “green world order” by 2012 which will be enforced by a structure of global governance and funded by a gargantuan $45 trillion transfer of wealth from richer countries, as the globalists’ insidious plan to centralize power, crush sovereignty while devastating the economy is exposed once again.

As we warned at the time, the failure of Copenhagen in December did not spell the end of the global warming heist, but merely a roadblock in the UN’s agenda to create a world government funded by taxes paid by you on the very substance you exhale – carbon dioxide.

Using the justification of the vehemently debunked hoax that carbon dioxide is a deadly threat to the planet, the UN is already working to resurrect the failed Copenhagen agreement, with a series of new Copenhagen process negotiations set to take place in April, May and June.'

Global Warming Update


Private industry and governments around the world have spent trillions of dollars in the name of saving our planet from manmade global warming. Academic institutions, think tanks and schools have altered their curricula and agenda to accommodate what was seen as the global warming "consensus."

Mounting evidence suggests that claims of manmade global warming might turn out to be the greatest hoax in mankind's history. Immune and hostile to the evidence, President Barack Obama's administration and most of the U.S. Congress sides with Climate Czar Carol Browner, who says, "I'm sticking with the 2,500 scientists. These people have been studying this issue for a very long time and agree this problem is real."

The scientists whom Browner references are associated with the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Let's look some of what they told us. The 2007 IPCC report, which won them a Nobel Peace Prize, said that the probability of Himalayan glaciers "disappearing by the year 2035 and perhaps sooner is very high" as a result of manmade global warming. Recently, IPCC was forced to retract their glacier disappearance claim, which was made on the basis of a non-scientific magazine article. When critics initially questioned the prediction, Rajendra Pachauri, IPCC's chairman, dismissed them as "voodoo scientists".'

Afghan Senators Demand Execution of Foreign Troops

Pajhwok News Agency reports that on Tuesday, the Afghanistan senate deplored the foreign airstrikes that killed 21 innocent civilians in the province of Daikundi on Sunday, and demanded that NATO avoid any repetition of this sort of error.

But some senators went farther, demanding that NATO or US military men responsible for the deaths be executed. Senator Hamidullah Tokhi of Uuzgan complained to Pajhwok that the foreign forces had killed civilians in such incidents time and again, and kept apologizing but then repeating the fatal mistake: "Anyone killing an ordinary Afghan should be executed in public".'

New Bill Seeks to Ban Consumer Access to Dietary Supplements

A bill has been introduced to the Senate that would drive up the cost of dietary supplements and restrict your access to them. This bill seeks to give the FDA arbitrary control over what supplements you are allowed to have.

This bill proposes to squander tax revenue, while burdening the private sector with oppressive laws that will hinder scientific advances and increase costs. The net effect will be to take away your free access to dietary supplements.

Pharmaceutical interests are obviously behind this latest effort to legislatively force more Americans towards expensive prescription drugs and away from natural ways of preventing degenerative disease.

Prehistoric UFO and ET Images Found in Remote Cave in India



'A group of anthropologists working with hill tribes in a remote area of India have made a startling discovery: Intricate prehistoric cave paintings depicting aliens and UFO type craft.

The images were found in the Hoshangabad district of the state of Madhya Pradesh only 70 kilometers from the local administrative centre of Raisen. The caves are hidden deep within dense jungle.
A clear image of what might be an alien or ET in a space suit can be seen in one cave painting along with a classical flying saucer shaped UFO that appears to be either beaming something down or beaming something up, in what might be an ancient UFO abduction scenario. A force-field or trail of some sort is seen at the rear of the UFO.

Also visible is another object that might depict a wormhole, explaining how aliens were able to reach Earth. This image may lead UFO enthusiasts to conclude that the images might have been drawn with the involvement of aliens themselves.'

Local Archaeologist, Mr Wassim Khan, has personally seen the images. He claims that the objects and creatures seen in them are totally anomalous and out of character when compared to other, already discovered, examples of prehistoric cave art depicting ancient life in the area. As such he believes that they might suggest beings from other planets have been interacting with humans since prehistoric times: Adding weight to the 'ancient astronaut theory' which postulates that human civilization was established with the assistance of benevolent space-faring aliens.'

Prominent Investor: Pound Could Collapse Within Weeks


Billionaire financier Jim Rogers has predicted that the British Pound could completely collapse within weeks, sending shockwaves throughout the global economy and heralding the beginning of a downturn that would make the recent economic crisis look tame in comparison.

“Other currencies aren’t strong and the Euro has real problems, with cracks much wider than Greece beginning to show,” Rogers said.

“But it’s the Pound that’s most vulnerable. In real terms, it’s already devalued against virtually every currency barring the Zimbabwean dollar and it’s especially exposed over the weeks running up to the UK election. In a basket of currencies, the Pound is potentially a basket case. And that will put Britain in an extremely bad position for the shakedown".'

Paul, Bernanke, Waxman and $12 Billion in Cash Squandered

On February 24, Rep. Ron Paul asked Fed mob boss Ben Bernanke about $12 billion in cash. Paul said “a lot of cash was passed through — and a lot of people suppose it was passed through the Federal Reserve — when there was a provisional government [in Iraq] after the 2003 invasion. That money was not appropriated by the Congress as required by law.”

“Congressman, these specific allegations you’ve made are absolutely bizarre, and I have no knowledge of anything remotely like what you just described,” Bernanke responded.

Bizarre? Apparently Helicopter Ben does not have a grasp on the recent history of the “federal” agency he administers.



Last July Rep. Henry Waxman, chairman of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, addressed this very issue.

“In a 13 month period from May 2003 to June 2004, the Federal Reserve sent nearly $12 billion in cash, mainly in $100 bills from the United States to Iraq,” Waxman explained. “To do that, the Federal Reserve Bank in New York had to pack 281 million individual bills … onto wooden pallets to be shipped to Iraq. The cash weighed more than 363 tons and was loaded onto C-130 cargo planes to be flown into Baghdad".'

U.S. Government Panel Now Pushing 'Vaccinations For All!' No Exceptions...


A government panel is now recommending that virtually all Americans get a flu shot each year, starting this fall.

The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices had gradually been expanding its recommendation for flu shots - 85 percent of Americans were already included.

On Wednesday, the panel voted to recommend a seasonal flu vaccination for everyone except babies younger than 6 months and those with egg allergies or other unusual conditions.

The panel's recommendation now goes to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The CDC usually follows the panel's advice and spreads the message to doctors and hospitals across the country.'

Will Brown reveal something so spectacular that will have us all riveted to your seats?

Either way one can be assured that the questions will be so carefully chosen and Brown just like his predecessor will have all the answers carefully laid out before him.'

Greek Rescue in Danger as Deputy Prime Minister Attacks 'Nazi' Germany

Theodoros Pangalos, deputy prime minister, said Germany had no right to reproach Greece for anything after it devastated the country under the Nazi occupation, which left 300,000 dead. "They took away the gold that was in the Bank of Greece, and they never gave it back. They shouldn't complain so much about stealing and not being very specific about economic dealings," he told the BBC.

Twisting the knife further, he said the current crop of EU leaders were of "very poor quality" and had botched this month's crisis summit in Brussels. "The people who are managing the fortunes of Europe were not up to the task," he said.

One banker said the situation was surreal. "How can they call the Germans incompetent Nazis and still expect a bail-out?"

Mr Panagalos has gone even further than premier George Papandreou, who said Greece had become a "guinea pig" for squabbling eurocracts playing power games.'

Al Gore Is Lying Low -- for Good Reason

Maybe Al Gore's been advised by legal counsel to lie low. He may be the leader of the anthropogenic global warming (AGW) movement, but he's not defending it in public, not even when it's falling apart and his new fortune is based upon it.

Once it becomes clear to everyone that the AGW theory is based on cleverly manipulated data twisted by rigged computer models controlled by several dozen IPCC politicians/scientists, we can expect that investors who lose millions by investing in these companies will eventually haul Mr. Gore and the insider IPCC scientists into court.'

Rothschild Controlled Bank of England Says Carry On Printing Money



The madness of Mervyn King continues to show, stating that there should be more Quantitative Easing (money printing) on top of the £200bn he stole from savers already.... destroying the assets of savers savings, destroying pensions savings, and helping out the feckless New Labour government in it's quest to rack up unheard of levels of spending just to keep the state going, whilst the private sector collapses under the weight of paying for the economically unproductive public sector.

On announcing the good news to the markets that New Labour will print more money, it sent the markets lower and the UK Pound got devalued some more.

So this is New Labour's way of getting out of paying for all the money they borrowed, steal it from savers, make them beholden to the state for support (and thus control their votes), and discourage international investors from investing in the UK.

How much more evidence is needed to prove that New Labour's only interest is to smash the UK for the EUSSR and NWO to easily take over and control.

BBC's News Coverage of Tiger Woods' Apology Sparks 'Dumbing Down' Backlash


The BBC has faced fresh accusations of dumbing down over its extensive coverage of Tiger Woods's apology last week.

Scores of viewers complained about the golfer being the top story on the day 1,600 workers lost their jobs as the North-East's last steel plant was shut down.

Last Friday also saw British Gas report a 50 per cent profit rise despite the economic downturn, while it emerged that another British soldier had been killed fighting the Taliban.

But rather than leading with these stories, the golfer's public apology for a string of extra-marital affairs was chosen as the headline story on BBC1's main evening bulletin.

The corporation received 283 formal complaints, while many more voiced their dissatisfaction on internet messageboards.
They accused the broadcaster of ' sensationalising' the news and dumbing down by chasing celebrity stories.

Americans Who Know Their Rights Are The Real Target Of Napolitano’s “Domestic Terror” Warning


Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano cited examples of Muslim extremists in her warning Sunday that domestic terrorists were now as much a focus as international terrorism, but actual training manuals being used by state and federal authorities across America reveal that the primary target of the anti-terror apparatus hits a lot closer to home.

“Americans who turn to terrorism and plot against the U.S. are now as big a concern as international terrorists, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Sunday,” reports the Associated Press.

In reality, as leaked state and federal documents illustrate, the primary focus of the war on terror is aimed at American citizens who exercise or merely show an interest in their own constitutional rights.'

Secret AIG Document Shows Goldman Sachs Minted Most Toxic CDOs

When a congressional panel convened a hearing on the government rescue of American International Group Inc. in January, the public scolding of Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner got the most attention.

Lawmakers said the former head of the New York Federal Reserve Bank had presided over a backdoor bailout of Wall Street firms and a coverup. Geithner countered that he had acted properly to avert the collapse of the financial system.

A potentially more important development slipped by with less notice, Bloomberg Markets reports in its April issue. Representative Darrell Issa, the ranking Republican on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, placed into the hearing record a five-page document itemizing the mortgage securities on which banks such as Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Societe Generale SA had bought $62.1 billion in credit-default swaps from AIG.

These were the deals that pushed the insurer to the brink of insolvency -- and were eventually paid in full at taxpayer expense. The New York Fed, which secretly engineered the bailout, prevented the full publication of the document for more than a year, even when AIG wanted it released.'

Targeting Toyota: US Economic War Directed Against Japan

Does anyone really believe that Toyota is being pilloried in the media for a few highway fatalities?

Nonsense. If Congress is so worried about innocent people getting killed, then why haven't they indicted US commander Stanley McChrystal for blowing up another 27 Afghan civilians on Sunday?

But this isn't about bloodshed and it's certainly not "safety regulations". It's about politics--bare-knuckle Machiavellian politics. An attack on Toyota is an attack on Japan's leading export. It is an act of war. Here's a excerpt from the New York Times which explains what is really going on.'

US Offered Rigi 'Extensive Aid' for Iran Attacks


The captured ringleader of the Jundallah terrorist group, Abdolmalek Rigi, has confessed that the US administration had assured him of unlimited military aid and funding for waging an insurgency against the Islamic Republic of Iran.

"After Obama was elected, the Americans contacted us and they met me in Pakistan.They met us after clashes with my group around March 17 in (the southeastern city of) Zahedan, and he (the US operative) said that Americans had requested a meeting."

"I said we didn't have any time for a meeting and if we do help them they should promise to give us aid. They said they would cooperate with us and will give me military equipment, arms and machine guns. They also promised to give us a base along the border with Afghanistan next to Iran".'

Bosses At Scandal-Hit Stafford Hospital Escape Scot-Free


No one on the board at Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust has faced censure and all of them were either paid off, walked into another job or allowed to remain in post. The man who ran the hospital trust received a large pay-off despite his part in the scandal.

Martin Yeates, the former chief executive, left the trust “by mutual agreement” with a pay-off of £400,000 and a pension worth £1.27 million, it has been alleged.

The lack of disciplinary action emerged after the publication of a damning report into the treatment of patients between 2005 and 2008.

An independent report commissioned by the Government found that patients were abused and neglected by hostile staff and were left in humiliating and undignified conditions. The impact on them was “unimaginable”, the report said.

Patients, most of whom were treated at the trust’s main hospital in Stafford, were “robbed of their dignity”, left in soiled bedclothes, unwashed and in states of undress in full view of others, it found.

Families of patients had to clean lavatories and public areas themselves, while food and drinks were left out of reach and, it was alleged, patients drank out of vases.'

RBS to Pay £1.7 Billion in Bonuses despite £3.6 Billion Loss

Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), which is 84 per cent owned by the British taxpayer, will pay out up to £1.7 billion in bonuses to its bankers after reporting a £3.6 billion pre-tax loss for the past financial year.

The loss for the 12 months to December 31 is less than the £5 billion expected and far below the £24.3 billion loss that RBS reported for 2008, a record for any British company.

However, the bank is facing criticism over its decision to reward investment bankers with bonuses worth £1.3 billion, or 27 per cent of its revenue, after receiving billions of pounds in taxpayers' money during the recession to save it from collapse. Other staff will share up to £400 million in bonuses.'

Just Ignore Massive Climate Fraud Says UN Chief Moon

'The UN secretary-general Ban Ki-moon, today urged environment ministers to reject attempts by sceptics to undermine efforts to forge a climate change deal, stressing that global warming poses "a clear and present danger." In a message read by a UN official, Ban referred to the controversy over mistakes made in a 2007 report issued by the UN-affiliated Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) which have been criticised by climate sceptics.

Despite the failure to forge a binding deal on curbing heat-trapping greenhouse gas emissions at a UN conference in Copenhagen last December, Ban said the meeting made an important step forward by setting a target to keep global temperature from rising and establishing a program of climate aid to poorer nations. "To maintain the momentum, I urge you to reject last-ditch attempts by climate sceptics to derail your negotiations by exaggerating shortcomings in the ... report," Ban said in the statement read at the start of an annual UN meeting of environmental officials from 130 countries on the Indonesian resort island of Bali.'

Unplug the Signal: The Truth Will Not Be Televised


A flow of information is constantly streaming from the television set; a bombardment of words and pictures. The speed at which this information is communicated makes it easy for the signal to take control, switching the viewer's brain to stand-by as information is absorbed without analysis or question. Today the television's constant signal shapes the conclusions of the masses and produces the collective norm. The signal prescribes what is news and what is truth through the words of so-called experts and authorities, gelding the consciousness and independent thoughts of those subjected to it. Through television, the masses can be made to accept the most monstrous distortions of reality. The signal is a chill wind of continuous oppression over the minds of the masses. It controls the management of society and culture, creating uniformity across all subjects.

The fuel for this vehicle of mass deception is a technique known as perception management where an array of psychological techniques are used to alter the truth, leading the viewer to a desired conclusion. Some call this spin or propaganda while others know it as lying. According to Joseph Goebbels, Propaganda Minister for Adolph Hitler, "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it... It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State." Most of what can be found on the nightly news is nothing but advertisements selling more government and a false reality that benefits only those in control. Television is the dictator of information; newspaper and radio are the whisper campaign of the television's message.

It is expected that Americans will consistently prescribe to the doctrine of the television. It is subtly communicated that one should stay within the collective and never challenge the message, for doing so may be considered an aggression towards culture. The message is, "Be a good consumer; always obey authority; you know nothing; listen only to experts; be content and never question or express new ideas." This signal is being broadcast across millions of screens, indoctrinating the unconscious minds of those who choose this as their only reality. Self-censorship occurs when these individuals become so deeply indoctrinated that they are afraid to discuss any information outside the paradigm of television-created culture; they police their thoughts to ensure they won't conflict with this culture. Sadly, many people's reality today does not allow any outside information to process, instead it is written off as conspiracy or blatant lies. Our consciousness has been destroyed so much that fiction has become reality. An entire lifestyle of poisonous foods, pharmaceuticals, and fluoridated water are accepted as safe and sold to us at the cost of our health and well being.

Those of the establishment are using the incredibly powerful weapon of mass psychology as a method of controlling the minds of the masses and altering the behavior of individuals. Edward Bernays, a pioneer in the field of public relations in the 20th century, applied Sigmund Freud's theory of psychoanalysis to manipulate the masses by engineering consent. According to Bernays, "If we understand the mechanism and motives of the group mind, it is now possible to control and regiment the masses according to our will without them knowing it." Advertisers and psychologists of the billion dollar culture creation industry manufacture trends through the proliferation of insecurities; and manipulating desires and emotions. These concepts are also employed to control how individuals think about politics, as well as the possibilities and limitations within society. Those welding power within our streams of mass communication market their plans into each generation as individuals adopt specific ways of thinking and never suspect that all the major events and trends within their lifetime are actually planned by an elite few before they are even born. In our society today, culture is created from the top down. Virtually all forms of culture are created by the ruling class to build a false sense of reality, ensure social compliance, and control the future course of cultural evolution.

Predictive programming is a tool used by the establishment to acclimate the public to new ideas, trends, beliefs, and threats. It is used through television by including certain situations or ideas within the plots of many fictional shows, familiarizing the viewer with these concepts no matter what they may be watching. When similar situations occur or like ideas are circulated in the world we think that these particular things are quite natural for we have unknowingly been made familiar with them through television. By viewing nearly any popular show on television, one can see the same propaganda that will be aired on the nightly news. Propaganda on a wide array of subjects has been interwoven into a great number of television shows. Just a few of these subjects include global warming, vaccinations, torture, terrorism, national security, the militarization of police, and the degradation of the family unit. Through predictive programming, television shapes culture and prevents individuals from asking questions.

Crisis' are created on a daily basis and broadcast across the airwaves to keep individuals in a state of panic and fear. Whether it be the threat of a pandemic or terrorism, the constant state of crisis has created a form of mental illness as we are slowly acclimated into an age of crisis. By using Hegelian dialectic, the television promotes the problem, guides our reaction, and presents the solution. The problem of terrorism was exclaimed, a strong emotional response was evoked, and it was stated that our rights need be sacrificed in order to protect us from the threat. We've lost personal sovereignty under the guise of terrorism; we're stopped and searched; we're watched by cameras as we go about our lives; and we're encouraged to spy on our neighbors. We have been trained to accept the life of a prisoner.

America is in a state of enlightened despotism where most individuals live only to satisfy selfish inner desires and remain ignorant of the state of the world around them. In most public places one can find a television transmitting propaganda around the clock ensuring the masses remain focused on trivial matters. From birth we take the world as it’s presented on television. We don't question it and any serious criticism of TV is becoming psychologically impossible in society. Who would suspect getting born into a world where everything around you is a continuous lie? The youth of today are convinced that the experts and personalities on television are the authority of credible information while parents and older generations are foolish with dated ideas. Children are conditioned to disconnect from what is truly important to their well being and instead focus on mindless trivia, sports, celebrity gossip, and buying an array of material things. They invest their psychological worth in fantasy characters on television while ignoring or even scorning individuals contributing to the betterment of humanity. They are discouraged from getting involved in their local community and often lack the ability to think independently or to resist corruption. As their children's minds are molded by television, there is barely a murmur from the public.

For over half a century, our society has lived under this signal of mental programming and conditioning. The message is clear: don't be a leader, don't engage in critical thinking, and don’t care about the people in your life. Until individuals become aware of the current information war, our standard of living and our liberties will continue to be degraded and we will continue to lose communities and meaningful relationships between people. Currently, pockets of resistance are beginning to spring up everywhere as some unplug the signal and regain control of their own thoughts. Informed individuals are canceling their cable and satellite subscriptions and instead spending time with their families and children while participating in meaningful experiences. They are seeking alternative news sources. They are reading about those who weld incredible influence over culture like Edward Bernays, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Charles Galton Darwin, Plato, Bertrand Russell, and Aldous Huxley. However, it is a continuous battle to educate the masses for the television remains our greatest threat to individual sovereignty and the largest obstacle to becoming a truly informed individual. Fortunately, unplugging from the signal is easy. The television can simply be turned off. Through doing so, you may realize nearly our entire world is now a hoax; things once known as truth are fake. We have been trained like dogs to be obedient to our television; our master has had our minds on a tight leash. Let us never forget the truth will not be televised.

Brian Gerrish on Edge Media TV: Child Stealing by the State

Blackwater Took Hundreds of Guns From U.S. Military, Afghan Police


Employees of the CIA-connected private security corporation Blackwater diverted hundreds of weapons, including more than 500 AK-47 assault rifles, from a U.S. weapons bunker in Afghanistan intended to equip Afghan policemen, according to an investigation by the Senate Armed Services Committee. On at least one occasion, an individual claiming to work for the company evidently signed for a weapons shipment using the name of a “South Park” cartoon character. And Blackwater has yet to return hundreds of the guns to the military.'

'Global Warming': Time to Get Angry


Corus’ steelworks at Redcar, near Middlesbrough, “Teesside Cast Products”, is to be closed (”mothballed” is the euphemism). It is Britain’s last great steelworks and an essential national resource. Without it, we are at the world’s mercy.

Corus is owned by Tata Steel of India. Recently, Tata received “EU-carbon-credits” worth up to £1bn, ostensibly so that steel-production at Redcar would not be crippled by the EU’s “carbon-emissions-trading-scheme”. By closing the plant at Redcar – and not making any “carbon-emissions” – Tata walks off with £1bn of taxpayers’ money, which it will invest in its steel-factories in India, where there is no “carbon-emissions-trading-scheme”.

There’s more. The EU’s “emissions-trading-scheme” (ETS) is modelled on instructions from the “International Panel on Climate-Change” (IPCC) of the United Nations Organisation. The Chairman of the IPCC is one Dr Rajendra K.Pachauri, a former railway-engineer, who obtained this post by virtue of his being Chairman of the “Tata Energy-Research Institute” – set up by Tata Steel.'

Israeli Forces, Warships Fire on Gaza Workers in North

Palestinians collecting small stones and concrete rubble in the As-Saifa area, part of the northern 'no-go zone' at the western tip of the Strip, were targeted by Israeli fire from a military patrol and warships on Wednesday morning, sources said.

The workers, reportedly collecting fragments for construction projects in Gaza City, were able to escape the fire unharmed, local sources said.

Israeli gunboats were also reported to have opened fire on the northern Gaza Strip in the early morning, fishermen in the Al-Waha area of the coast reported. The zone, north of Beit Lahiya, is adjacent to the area where workers were collecting construction materials.

It was not immediately clear if the incidents were related.

In the southern Strip, witnesses said an Israeli military patrol entered 100 meters beyond the buffer area into civilian areas.

An Israeli military spokesman said he was looking into both reports.

A weekly report by the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs noted an escalation in violence "in areas along the Gaza-Israel border," last week, which killed one and injured six. According to the the UN office, "Since the beginning of 2010, Israeli forces have killed nine Palestinians and injured 13 others in Gaza; no Israeli casualties have been reported."

EU-Israeli Relations et to Stay Warm in Spite of Dubai Killing


Nothing illustrates the sensitivity of the European Union’s relationship with Israel better than the statement which EU foreign ministers issued on Monday complaining about the use of forged European passports in last month’s killing of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, the Hamas commander, in Dubai. The statement contained several sentences that were masterpieces of waffle, such as the following: “The EU … believes that its passports remain among the most secure in the world, fully meeting all international standards.”

The statement was, however, remarkable chiefly for its reluctance to spell out that the EU holds Israel responsible for the flagrant misuse of identity documents belonging to European citizens.'

A Third of All U.S. Casualties in Eight-Year Afghan War Have Occurred Since Obama Ordered Escalation

More than 300 U.S. soldiers have died in the war in Afghanistan since May 15, 2009, the day when the first major wave of new troops ordered by President Barack Obama arrived in the country.

The 308 U.S. casualties in Afghanistan since then account for about a third of the total of 920 U.S. casualties in the eight-year war.

Of the 308 soldiers who have died since mid-May 2009, 287 were killed by enemy action, according to a CNSNews.com database of all casualties in the Afghanistan theatre of war.'

Systematic Destruction Of Internet Freedom


The ruling was the first of its kind in history and was condemned by critics as "the biggest threat to internet freedom we have seen".

America's ambassador to Italy, David Throne, condemned the decision, saying that freedom of the internet was vital for democracy.

The trial centred on footage posted on Google Videos, of an autistic teenager and who was being bullied by four other boys, at a Turin school.

The footage was posted in September 2006 and became the most viewed where it remained for two months before finally being removed.

Prosecutors in Milan brought the case after being contacted by the charity Viva Down and argued that the boys privacy had been violated and that Google should have removed the footage quicker than it eventually did.'

“The science regarding climate change is settled, and human activity is responsible for global warming,” Jackson said, adding that the EPA needs more funding to ensure climate change legislation is passed.'

Why American Business Fails

Good news: It was a normal day in Sharon Springs , KS, when a Union Pacific crew boarded a loaded coal train for the long trek to Salina .

The Bad news: Just a few miles into the trip a wheel bearing became overheated and melted, letting a metal support drop down and grind on the rail, creating white hot molten metal droppings spewing down to the rail.

The Good news: A very alert crew noticed smoke about halfway back in the train and immediately stopped the train in compliance with the rules.

The Bad news: The train stopped with the hot wheel over a wooden bridge with creosote ties and trusses.

The crew tried to explain to higher-ups but were instructed not to move the train!

They were instructed "The Rules" prohibit moving the train when a part is defective!

Councils Ticket Their Own Cars and then Sue Themselves!

Crackpot councils are wasting thousands of pounds by suing THEMSELVES over parking tickets. At least six local authorities have issued tickets against their own vehicles - then refused to pay the fines to themselves. Some cases went through a staggering 14 stages before reaching a Parking Appeals tribunal.

One farce saw Islington Council in North London issue a ticket, then take itself to an appeal hearing - where it asked for costs against itself. The costs process involves another four steps.

Stunned adjudicator Gerald Styles said he could not make an order for costs because the council could not "act wholly unreasonably or vexatiously against itself".'

Al Gore’s Communist Connection


In his prepared remarks, Lewis touched on a matter that has attracted our interest in the past—Vice President Al Gore’s Communist connection. But Lewis didn’t put it that way. Instead, he referred to Al Gore and the “controversial” Armand Hammer, the late chairman of Occidental Petroleum. In fact, Hammer was a Soviet agent and money launderer for the Communist Party who helped Vice President Gore and his family become rich. Lewis explained how, personally and professionally, Gore still profits from Occidental largesse. “To this day”, Lewis said, “he still draws $20,000 a year from a land deal in Tennessee brokered between his father and Hammer. The total amount is more than $300,000. The personal relationship between young Gore and Hammer was very close throughout the 1980s, including trips on Hammer’s private jet and constant campaign contributions.” Lewis explained how the Energy Department in 1997 sold 47,000 acres of federal oil reserves to Occidental, after Vice President Gore, who has a reputation as a staunch environmentalist, recommended that the president give oil companies access to this land.'

The Big Story -UK Politics and the Israel Lobby

The Transhumanist and Police State Agenda in Pop Music


As seen in previous articles on this site, the world’s biggest stars exploit common themes in their work, permeating popular culture with a set of symbols and values. The cohesiveness of the message that is communicated to the masses, regardless of the artists’ musical genre, attests to the influence of a “higher power” over the industry. Other articles on this site have explored the way Illuminati symbolism, based on secret society occultism, has been reflected in popular videos. Exposing and desensitizing the world to the elite’s sacred symbols is, however, only one aspect of their agenda. Other aspects of Illuminati control are reflected in today’s popular music as well, including: mass mind control, transhumanism (the “robotization” of the human body) and the gradual introduction of a virtual police state. Through the news, movies and the music industry, this agenda is being insidiously presented to the masses, using various techniques. If the news scares people into accepting measures diminishing their personal freedoms and ushering in a “new era”, the music business accomplishes the same job by making it seem sexy, cool and trendy. This angle is mainly aimed at the younger crowd, which is much more susceptible to “take in” the industry’s message.'

Toyota's Consumer Safety Problems are Dwarfed by Body Count of Big Pharma's Deadly Drugs


Even as Toyota now finds itself the target of an increasingly hyped-up inquisition about "public safety," skeptical consumers are asking the commonsense question: If public safety is so important, then why isn't Congress asking about the dangers of Big Pharma's deadly drugs?

Toyota's problems with throttle controls and brakes haven't actually killed anyone as far as we know. Even if deaths have occurred, their number would be extremely small compared to the number of deaths caused by Big Pharma's products. FDA-approved pharmaceuticals kill nearly 270 people each day in the United States alone, and that's according to conservative calculations published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. That's equivalent to a jumbo jet airliner falling out of the sky and crashing in a giant ball of flame every single day in the U.S.'

Cities Shortening Yellow Traffic Lights for Deadly Profit

Reeling through a 21st century addicted to technology and surveillance, citizens may be too overwhelmed to complain of increasing cameras popping up atop red lights at intersections across the nation, most of which are designed to catch them breaking traffic laws. That is, until they're caught in those intersections as the yellow lights unexpectedly change, and cars in front and back of them hit the brakes or punch the gas to avoid tickets. And when they find out those cameras and lights are being gamed, sometimes lethally, in the pursuit of quick profit? Then they get mad, and maybe even, for being used as motorized money pits.

"With all of the stories we hear on a daily basis, there is little doubt that the desire for ticket revenue trumps safety concerns," Gary Biller, executive director of the National Motorists Association told AlterNet. "A quick current example is California's governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, who a few weeks ago proposed state budget including a proposal to add speed sensors to 500 existing red-light cameras. The reason? Safety wasn't mentioned, but an expected additional annual revenue of $338 million was".'

Debt Dynamite Dominoes: The Coming Financial Catastrophe


The people have been lulled into a false sense of safety under the ruse of a perceived “economic recovery.” Unfortunately, what the majority of people think does not make it so, especially when the people making the key decisions think and act to the contrary. The sovereign debt crises that have been unfolding in the past couple years and more recently in Greece, are canaries in the coal mine for the rest of Western “civilization.” The crisis threatens to spread to Spain, Portugal and Ireland; like dominoes, one country after another will collapse into a debt and currency crisis, all the way to America.

In October 2008, the mainstream media and politicians of the Western world were warning of an impending depression if actions were not taken to quickly prevent this. The problem was that this crisis had been a long-time coming, and what’s worse, is that the actions governments took did not address any of the core, systemic issues and problems with the global economy; they merely set out to save the banking industry from collapse. To do this, governments around the world implemented massive “stimulus” and “bailout” packages, plunging their countries deeper into debt to save the banks from themselves, while charging it to people of the world.

Then an uproar of stock market speculation followed, as money was pumped into the stocks, but not the real economy. This recovery has been nothing but a complete and utter illusion, and within the next two years, the illusion will likely come to a complete collapse.

The governments gave the banks a blank check, charged it to the public, and now it’s time to pay; through drastic tax increases, social spending cuts, privatization of state industries and services, dismantling of any protective tariffs and trade regulations, and raising interest rates. The effect that this will have is to rapidly accelerate, both in the speed and volume, the unemployment rate, globally. The stock market would crash to record lows, where governments would be forced to freeze them altogether.

When the crisis is over, the middle classes of the western world will have been liquidated of their economic, political and social status. The global economy will have gone through the greatest consolidation of industry and banking in world history leading to a system in which only a few corporations and banks control the global economy and its resources; governments will have lost that right. The people of the western world will be treated by the financial oligarchs as they have treated the ‘global South’ and in particular, Africa; they will remove our social structures and foundations so that we become entirely subservient to their dominance over the economic and political structures of our society.

This is where we stand today, and is the road on which we travel.'

MacAskill’s Gagging Law


Kenny MacAskill, Scottish Justice Secretary and ex Levy & McRae lawyer, is apparently so scared by the rising tide of public ire surrounding his and his colleagues apparent cover up of the Hollie Greig scandal, that he has proposed amendments to the Criminal Justice and Licensing (Scotland) Bill, which is going through the Scottish Parliament at the moment.

The amendments would help stop people “stalking” or “harassing” their “victims” by text or online – strangely enough the exact charges leveled at Robert Green and the UK Column as we have been attempting to shed light on the apparent perversions of the course of justice by Grampian Police, the Procurator Fiscal’s office, Elish Angiolini and Mr MacAskill himself.

At present, the only charge which the Scottish authorities can level in such a case is Breach Of The Peace, by coincidence the precise charge leveled at Robert Green last weekend following his arrest.

The powers provided under the new legislation would allow Scottish prosecutors to go after people campaigning using the internet, including email and websites such as Facebook.

Mr MacAskill said, “Stalking can be a deeply frightening crime for victims.”

Poor Kenny. Feeling the pressure are we?

Mr MacAskill is not the only politician attempting to attack free speech in this way. A source has alleged to the UK Column that David Cameron has stated that should he become Prime Minister, he will legislate to prevent campaigners from asking difficult questions on public forums.

The Israel Lobby – The Real Bullies in British Politics


The big row over allegations that British Prime Minister Gordon Brown is a bully serves as a timely reminder that bully-boy tactics are endemic in politics. Most party “hacks” cave in under the pressure of stick or carrot, and go for the juicy carrot.

A few, fortunately, stand up to bullies, and get a lot of stick.

One such is Baroness Jenny Tonge, often insulted, smeared and bullied; and recently sacked for the second time by her party's leadership.

In 2006, she was publicly rebuked after telling a fringe meeting at her party’s conference: “The pro-Israeli lobby has got its grips on the Western world, its financial grips. I think they have probably got a certain grip on our party.” It was so obviously true, but the Liberal Democrat leader at the time, Menzies Campbell, said he dissociated himself from her “offensive remarks” and “their clear anti-Semitic connotations”.

Who was being bullied here – Campbell by the Israel lobby? Or Tonge by Campbell? Both, I would say; and what a pathetic spectacle!

Back in 2004 Jenny Tonge was talking about Palestinian suicide bombers and said: "If I had to live in that situation – and I say that advisedly – I might just consider becoming one myself." Charles Kennedy, the then party leader, dismissed her from her front-bench spokes job, saying her remarks “are completely unacceptable. They are not compatible with Liberal Democrat Party policies and principles. There can be no justification, under any circumstances for taking innocent lives through terrorism."

He clearly knew and cared nothing about the “circumstances” in the occupied territories or who was responsible for most of the killing.

Readers will already know that a few days ago, as speculation mounted in the media about Israel’s past involvement in human organ theft and their unexpected presence in Haiti’s earthquake zone with state-of-the-art field medical facilities, she suggested "the IDF [Israel Defence Forces] and the Israeli Medical Association should establish an independent inquiry immediately to clear the names of the team in Haiti”. Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg called her comments "wrong, distasteful and provocative ... wholly unacceptable" and expressed concern for "the deep and understandable distress they have caused to the Jewish community..."

She was summarily sacked from her party spokes job in the House of Lords.

A petition, addressed to Clegg, asks for her to be re-instated: click here. Some of the signatories' comments are well worth reading and I hope Clegg and his senior colleagues take them on board. Here are a random sample:

“Please be clear about what Jenny Tonge has requested. It is essential not to be intimidated into reducing free speech.”

“Those who speak the truth are often vilified by those who would rather not hear it spoken.”

“...The allegations about organ theft from young Palestinians by Israel in 1991-92 require a meticulous international investigation.”

“This action against her is cowardly and despicable. Reinstate her to her post, with apology!”

“If there is to be peace in the Middle East (specifically in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict) it's vital we have a political party in the UK which is seen to uphold truth and impartiality rather than the 'usual suspects' who bend to pressure from Israel.”

“Israeli foreign policy will never change unless we stop turning a blind eye to the truth. Israel was incessant in it's tracking down of holocaust perpetrators but no-one dares to point out their own war crimes.”

“Don't allow the Israeli state to claim it speaks for all Jews – it doesn't. Its war crimes must be exposed.”

“If Israel have nothing to hide then they should be happy to investigate. The daily harassment of Palestinians and international NGOs working on the West Bank continues and the world stands by. Let those who speak out to request investigations of human rights violations by Israel be applauded not condemned.”

“No one should fear the cleansing light of truthful inquiry, unless they are despicable dwellers in deception and deceit.”

“I fully endorse this petition and am gravely disturbed by the fact that foreign powers should be allowed to meddle in the internal affairs of this country and its political structure.”

“High-tech IDF field hospitals with operating theatres, the lot, in Haiti when same IDF has targeted ambulances in Gaza, refused them access to the dying and injured, blown up hospitals, blasted the brains out of babies.”

“Nick Clegg ... please ... instead of targeting and blacklisting Baroness Tonge, please initiate an investigation into Israel's countless human rights violations. I am sick and tired of successive British governments' double standards and ongoing, unquestioning support for the State of Israel.”

“It's shocking politicians lack the moral backbone to confront the abuse shown to the Palestinans by the Jewish nation. It's a sickening betrayal of the Jews, murdered in WW2, that the nation of Israel is now doing the same thing...”

Redress
