Five minors face long years for a crime that unlikely ever happened

10-03-2014 10:42

Friday 14 March 2014 marks the one year anniversary of the kidnapping and imprisonment of five Palestinian teenagers (at the time aged 15-17) for alleged stone-throwing, following a settler car accident that took place close to their village of Hares in Salfit district (West Bank), Palestine. In what clearly appears to be a trumped-up case with no hard evidence of a crime or eyewitness accounts that would link these particular boys to the accident, they are being charged with 20 counts of attempted murder each and are facing long years in prison.

YOU CANNOT DIE IN HELL: Using Indefinite Detention for Political and Religious P

09-03-2014 22:57

Once you are born a creature (and irrespective of your personal circumstances which can vary greatly) that is as you were forced into existence (not by any choice on your part but according to European religious dogma originating in the Middle East) not just for a lifetime on earth but also forever after by some notion of an immortal soul, so then you are also forced into an immortality (almost like a vampire who too can never truly die in literature) and irrespective of however terrifying such an immortality might present itself. “What kind of God (or Yahweh) would put a soul, any soul (no matter how supposedly evil in human terms) into an eternal length of torture—and never having to contemplate acquiescence—what kind of compassion is that? This is as extreme of cruelty and barbarity as one could espouse. Such cosmic outcome, supposedly as Divine Justice, doesn’t even reach the categories of mere human ideas to justice.

What does the Invasion of Yalta Mean for the European Peninsula?

08-03-2014 11:30

Once again it is an anachronism out of the book: When the originator of the international treaty under which Russia had pulled its occupation troops out of central Europe was found dead after a briefing by Cameron´s spies, it was determined that the series of such encounters which included other Elders of the London madman´s monarchist junta might be an indication that just like the „14 Points“ of 1917 switched the war up a gear, a strong intervention had begun to shatter the malicious apparatus from within, resulting in the phenomenon of these among the cannibals who had been believing their own lies coming home to roost. It was the Thatcher deal of 1990, under which the Russian military had evacuated its people from Europe, in a surprise development akin to Stalin standing up and walking out from the bleached photograph with Churchill and Roosevelt that was made at the signing ceremony of the Yalta treaty in 1943. 71 years later, his heir has walked back in, and these of the two others are found to have changed sides to the then enemy. It is the same as every time a ratification procedure is stalled: Signatures become empty words and the latter then turn into moronic treason. But now a glimpse of hope seems to have arrived on the horizon of the subcontinent that the occupation might end in the foreseeable future.

Ukraine: US, EU, Look in the Mirror !

Ukraine: Don't Blame President Putin - US, EU, Look in the Mirror. ......... "If you can keep your head, when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you ..." ("If", Rudyard Kipling, 1865-1936.) The delusional and mind stretching hypocrisy of Western leaders and spokespeople regarding the outcome of external meddling in the Ukraine increasingly mirrors King George 111 whose: "life and reign were marked by a series of military conflicts involving his kingdoms, much of the rest of Europe, and places farther afield in Africa, the Americas and Asia ..."
