Israel hat aus Gaza ein zweites Somalia gemacht

Hans Brackner, 23.01.2009 15:32

ATTACK on PALESTINIAN LIVES Jetzt, wo die Waffen schweigen, wird für die Palästinenser im Gazastreifen das ganze Ausmaß der Zerstörungen sichtbar. Die Menschen stochern durch die Trümmer, ziehen Leichen hervor, setzen die Toten bei. Es gibt mehr als 1300 Todesopfer, Hunderte davon sind Kinder. Kaum vorstellbar, dass aus so viel Zerstörung, aus so viel Bösem, jemals etwas Gutes erwachsen kann. Deutsche im Einsatz gegen Waffenschmuggel? ...........

In Gaza, Alarm Spreads Over Use of Lethal New Weapons

Erin Cunningham and General Joe, 23.01.2009 15:05

"What Israel has done is so terrible. The whole world should know. Please share this with everyone you can. Spread this all over the net. Take a copy to your neighbor. Hold reading and discussion groups. Speak out, speak loud, speak long."

Citigroup, Bank of America ‘Nationalized’ as U.S. Calls Shots, 23.01.2009 13:48

Jan. 23 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. government’s decision to pledge billions of additional dollars with strings attached to Citigroup Inc. and Bank of America Corp. may be nationalization by another name, according to former bankers and regulators.

Juntarse, la fórmula de José Martí

Por Marcos Alfonso, 23.01.2009 13:23

José Martí, al decir del periodista Pablo de la Torriente Brau, “fue un tejedor” y enlazó “por el decoro y el deber” a todos los hombres de la revolución. Lo ejemplificó en su hacer: en apenas 55 días (23 de marzo al 19 de mayo de 1895) lanzó el Manifiesto de Montecristi, desembarcó en Cuba y cayó en combate.

Guantanamo to close - Obama signs order

Claire Mallinson, 23.01.2009 06:33

Just hours ago, President Obama signed executive orders to close Guantanamo Bay and end the use of torture. This means an end to CIA secret detention centres around the world, an end to torture such as waterboarding, and an end to human rights abuse in the name of the "war on terror", says Amnesty International. "This is fantastic news which would never have happened without you and your hard work," AI writes to people who took part in a signature drive.

Nuevo consenso regional sobre Cuba

Por Néstor Núñez, 22.01.2009 18:09

Ciertos “analistas”, de esos que son tan frecuentes en determinados medios de prensa, suelen afirmar que las visitas a La Habana este enero de los mandatarios de Argentina, Ecuador y Panamá, constituyen una suerte de mensaje a las estrenadas autoridades estadounidenses acerca del nuevo consenso del hemisferio hacia Cuba.

Guantánamo: una base contra la voluntad del pueblo cubano

Por Ariel Soler Costafreda, 22.01.2009 18:05

Guantánamo, visto desde el espacio mediático exterior, se reduce a una prisión internacional, almacén de “combatientes enemigos” que el mundo condena por violar el Derecho Internacional y que Barack Obama, el estrenado presidente de Estados Unidos, desmantelará en un año.

No more glue traps

By Daphna Nachminovitch, 22.01.2009 17:43

Officials in the U.S. and Canada should follow Victoria, Australia’s progressive lead by banning glue traps. Glue traps are one of the slowest, cruelest methods of killing animals that exist today and they should have been banned a long time ago.

The Obama presidency: Here comes socialism

Dick Morris, The Hill, 22.01.2009 15:54

2009-2010 will rank with 1913-14, 1933-36, 1964-65 and 1981-82 as years that will permanently change our government, politics and lives. Just as the stars were aligned for Wilson, Roosevelt, Johnson and Reagan, they are aligned for Obama. Simply put, we enter his administration as free-enterprise, market-dominated, laissez-faire America. We will shortly become like Germany, France, the United Kingdom, or Sweden — a socialist democracy in which the government dominates the economy, determines private-sector priorities and offers a vastly expanded range of services to many more people at much higher taxes.

Gazan doctor says death toll inflated

Ynet News, 22.01.2009 15:41

Physician at Gaza's Shifa Hospital tells Italian newspaper number of dead in Israeli offensive 'stands at no more than 500 or 600, most of them youths recruited to Hamas' ranks'. Senior Palestinian Health Ministry official denies claims, IDF estimate on 1,200 casualties in Strip remains unchanged.

Obama's Troop Removal: &quot;A Risk That is Unacceptable&quot;

Billy Wharton, 22.01.2009 15:36

Perhaps a bit of "cold-eye realism," beginning with the fact that more than one million Iraqis have died as a result of the US occupation, should be employed by the anti-war movement as we begin the process of challenging an Obama presidency whose military policy has started off sounding a lot like a re-hashed version of George W. Bush.

INITIATIVE GRUNDEINKOMMEN: Petition an den Bundestag .... Die Geschichte beginnt in Greifswald. Eisig war`s in Deutschlands leerer werdendem Nordosten, viel dunkel in den Tagen zwischen den Jahren. Da fasst eine Frau den Mut, mal einen Vorschlag an den Bundestag zu schreiben. Denn eisig war auch der Ministerpräsident gewesen, dem sie ihren Vorschlag bei einer Bürgerstunde schon erzählt hatte. Ein bedingungsloses Grundeinkommen, das wäre an der Zeit. Ein Lichtstreifen am Horizont, wie manchmal über der Ostsee vor ihrem Fenster. Und weg mit dem komplizierten Steuersystem, das ihr die Arbeit im Kindergarten nur schwer macht.

Fisk on Gaza: Obama's missed the point

Günther Bachmann, 22.01.2009 11:53

Israels-phosphorus-bombs-Gaza It would have helped if Obama had the courage to talk about what everyone in the Middle East was talking about. No, it wasn't the US withdrawal from Iraq. They knew about that. They expected the beginning of the end of Guantanamo and the probable appointment of George Mitchell as a Middle East envoy was the least that was expected. Of course, Obama did refer to "slaughtered innocents", but these were not quite the "slaughtered innocents" the Arabs had in mind.

LOS NIÑOS &quot;TERRORISTAS&quot; DE HAMÁS (VÍDEO), 22.01.2009 11:51

Un dramático testimonio videográfico

La salvaje agresión militar israelí sobre la franja de Gaza se ha saldado, según datos aún provisionales, con más de 1400 muertos y 5500 heridos. De entre los muertos más de 400 son niños, algunos de los cuales - según testimonio del sacerdote presidente de la Asociación Mensajeros de La Paz, - "fueron tiroteados en el pecho". Por su parte, Amnistía Internacional ha encontrado pruebas irrefutables de que, en sus bombardeos masivos sobre áreas residenciales densamente pobladas, el ejército de Israel utilizó fósforo blanco, sustancia que produce quemaduras que pueden llegar hasta los huesos de sus víctimas. Pese a la evidencia aplastante de esta barbarie, aún hay quienes se atreven a sostener la coartada sionista que acusa a Hamas de ser culpable de la misma "por utilizar escudos humanos".

Voices from Gaza

International Solidarity Movement, 22.01.2009 11:23

Below is a compilation of quotes from Gazan medical personnel and international human rights workers during the recent air-strikes and invasion of the Gaza Strip. The full extent of the human rights violations of the Israeli Army are only beginning to be made known. The illegal use of white phosphorous bombs, the shelling of hospitals and schools, the snippering of civilians, and the killing of entire families in their homes, are war crimes.

RNC FELONY UPDATE: Karen Meissner &amp; Christina Vana

counter attack, 22.01.2009 04:54

Karen Meissner and Christina Vana

"On Saturday, January 17th, 2009, Karen Meissner and Christina Vana of
Milwaukee, WI found warrants had been issued for their arrests after reading
an article published by the Associated Press, which comments on an incident
relating to the protests during the Republican National Convention in
September 2008. Immediatly Karen and Christina traveled to St. Paul, MN and
within 24 hours of reading their names in the paper, went with their lawyers
to the Ramsey County Law Enforcement Center. Here they were taken into
custody and each charged with Aiding and Abetting Assault in the Second
Degree, a charge which carries a maximum sentance of seven years and/or a
$14,000 fine. Bail was set at $30,000 each, a total of $60,000. This
extremely large amount was made possible by the active media attention which
still surrounds the Republican National Convention. Many people charged with
rape recieve bail a fraction of the amount. Sixty thousand dollars was an
impossible amount to raise, but within two days, friends and supporters from
around the country raised the $6,500 neccessary to bond them out of jail...

Their Omnibus hearing is scheduled for February 25th, 2009 where they will
plead not guilty to these bogus charges.

Day of Solidarity with the Palestinians and the Greek Anarchists and Authoritarians

Julia Smedley, 21.01.2009 19:21

An International Day of Solidarity is being called for January 23, 2009, for the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip and the Greek Anarchists and other anti-authoritarian activists in Greece. There are many overlaps between these two struggles, and those similarities are explored below. The date of the demonstration is to also commemorate the anniversary of the Riots in the Warsaw Ghetto in Poland, during the period of Nazi Germany (1943), where 70,000 Jewish people took this city back, and held it for a long time before the Germans took over. The date and the atrocities exposed in this article are highly ironic, given that the Jewish people of Israeli have experienced a genocide of their own: the Holocaust.

Information to support the Venezuelan people and their/our revolution

All interested in the Venezuelan revolution/process will want to read these articles. They can be very helpful at countering disinformation and "other" actions we know are coming from Washington. Obama is better but he will not be able to change U.S. foreign policy unless you and many others are armed with the facts/truth and are working "hard and fast" to make that change.

Bush Foes Respond to Obama’s ‘New Start’ Appeal With Skepticism: Note the possibilities

jamie and others, 21.01.2009 15:18

In Pakistan, where Obama has said he would ratchet up pressure to weed out Taliban and al-Qaeda fighters who have established themselves in rugged mountains along the Afghan border, the astonishment over his November election has settled into a feeling of muted hope, said Omeer Butt, a 20-year-old in Lahore.

“I think it is good that a black man has come into power,” said Butt. “He can understand the problems of poor people, but we don’t feel confident that Obama will change life for us here.”

Not all were as skeptical. “With Obama in office, policies are going to change” toward Latin America, said Jose de Freitas, a 42-year-old Caracas restaurant owner. “He’s not going to see us as a backyard.”
