Europeans turning against Israel

Washington Post, 31.01.2005 20:55

(The editorial comments in brackets are mine.)


Dahr Jamail, 31.01.2005 20:49

Voting in Baghdad was linked with receipt of food rations, several voters said after the Sunday poll. Many Iraqis said Monday that their names were marked on a list provided by the government agency that provides monthly food rations before they were allowed to vote. ”Two of the food dealers I know told me personally that our food rations would be withheld if we did not vote,” said Saeed Jodhet, a 21-year-old engineering student who voted in the Hay al-Jihad district of Baghdad. Just days before the election, 52 year-old Amin Hajar who owns an auto garage in central Baghdad had said: ”I'll vote because I can't afford to have my food ration cut...if that happened, me and my family would starve to death.”

The Apartheid Regime of the Zionist State tears families apart without remorse, because of the racism inherent in the indefensible ideology called Zionism.

America, What Are We Dying For?

Monica Benderman, 31.01.2005 19:46

"It is a sad day when a country decides there is greater honor in a soldier knowing “how to die by the rules… when the only important thing should be learning how to live like a human being.” So goes a quote from The Bridge on the River Kwai. Amazing how something from an old movie about war remains applicable when a country is at war. Someone must understand what we are seeing, and it makes me ask…"

Several Kurdish observers complained that illiterate voters were being told to vote for the Sistani-approved list by Shiite election workers and clerics. "We've had multiple voting here, and I saw one person vote three times," said Mohammed Amin Sheikh Mohammed, a Kurd from the northern Iraqi city of Erbil who now lives in Kashan, Iran.

Sue Pleming, 31.01.2005 14:51

At least 232 mercenaries have been killed while working on U.S.-funded contracts in Iraq and the death toll is rising rapidly, according to a U.S. government audit released Sunday. The U.S. government does not keep an official tally of the number of civilians slain while working on U.S.-funded projects there and in support of U.S. forces. U.S. Labor Department statistics show companies filed 232 compensation claims under the Defense Base Act (DBA) for workers killed there, an increase in the fourth quarter of 2004 of 93 percent. Not all U.S. employers would have filed DBA claims for workers killed in Iraq and the death toll from civilians killed is likely to be higher than 232, said one U.S. official.

Iraq election failure portrayed as success by Western media

The first election in Iraq since the previous government was overthrown by American and British forces is a miserable disaster by any conceivable measure. Yet the Western media universally portrays the election as a historic success.

Hollywood Cinema, WHY???

Fed-up, 31.01.2005 10:05

Is it me the only one that has noticed there are child pornography innuendos in the first scene of the movie? I think the matter is serious if it is getting at that level!
There is a huge problem in English speaking countries: through the carrier of the English language, all the rubbish of Capitalism money+no-quality culture is just flooding them practically blocking any thing else. Is this 'globalisation'? Let's put it right, it is 'american anglo culturization', that's what it is. I'd love to see more European, Middle Easter cinema, etc. We'd all be very enriched. American (Hollywood) standards are far too low. It is obscene how they can pump so much money into a movie without facilitating talent.

MOSSAD D/B/A DEBKAFILE, 31.01.2005 04:33

While most of the Mossad's analysis (below) on the public debka website enthuses about the "Iraq Election", it also contains the following very revealing admissions:

"DEBKAfile’s Iraq experts reveal that, while the turnout is officially estimated at 60%, the real figure will probably turn out to be quite a bit lower, no more than 40-45% ... In Basra, Iraq’s second largest town, the turnout was 32-35%, although Iraqi election officials claimed 90%."

The inspector general said the occupying agency disbursed $8.8 billion to Iraqi ministries "without assurance the moneys were properly accounted for." U.S. officials, the report said, "did not establish or implement sufficient managerial, financial and contractural controls." There was no way to verify that the money was used for its intended purposes of financing humanitarian needs, economic reconstruction, repair of facilities, disarmament and civil administration.

Today's charade is simply about Iraq's oil

LINDA MCQUAIG, 31.01.2005 02:28

While useless in advancing real democracy, the election is highly useful to George W. Bush, who will point to a "democratic" transfer of power. Questioned last week, Bush said the U.S. would withdraw if asked by the new government. Really? Earlier in the week, the Pentagon acknowledged plans and budgets to keep 120,000 troops there for at least two more years. It sure looks like Washington plans to go on calling the shots in Iraq, but now there will be a plausible government to show off to the world. If Iraq's oil industry is put on the chopping block and ends up in the hands of U.S. oil companies, Washington will be off the hook; the decision will have been made by the "elected" Iraqi government. At last — mission accomplished.


Robert Fisk reports from Baghdad, 31.01.2005 02:18

The big television networks have been given a list of five polling stations where they will be "allowed" to film. Close inspection of the list shows that four of the five are in Shia Muslim areas - where the polling will probably be high - and one in an upmarket Sunni area where it will be moderate. Every working-class Sunni polling station will be out of bounds to the press. I wonder if the television lads will tell us that today when they show voters "flocking" to the polls.


note: they DIDN'T tell us that . . .

"The [phony "election"] commission said its initial tally had been little more than a guess based on local estimates." That's one important admission that isn't likely to make western news headlines in the morning.

There's a famous saying:

There are 3 kinds of lies:

1. lies
2. DAMNED lies and
3. statistics

The phony and incredible exaggerated claims about today's Iraq "election" farce from which international observers were prohibited fall into the last and worst category. The numerous closely cropped photos of "joyous" voters only proves that the masterminds of the faked televised "massive public support" for the toppling of the Saddam statue using clever camera angles to simulate the presence of a large crowd still hold jobs with their christian masters.

Deficits, the Dollar, and IEDs

Yoshie Furuhashi, 30.01.2005 21:46

Bill Gates, the world's richest man, is now betting against the dollar. "I'm short the dollar," says Gates. "The ol' dollar, it's gonna go down." Will the dollar be one day the target of attacks by hedge funds? Recently the dollar rallied a bit, but short-term fluctuations aside, the dollar has nowhere to go but down. Gradually or suddenly and precipitously? It may be possible to engineer gradual devaluation of the dollar and stimulate US export, shrinking the US trade deficit, but it turns out that "the US does not have adequate manufacturing capacity to eliminate the external deficit," according to David Hale. That means that the US power elite will demand that the US working class reduce consumption to haul the multinational ruling class out of the abyss of the US current-account deficit, at the same time as forcing the US working class to make greater and greater sacrifices as IED fodders, sinking further into the quagmire in Iraq. Can American workers fight back?
