Around 20,000 protesters marched through London waving Palestinian flags and chanting anti-Israel slogans

Thousands of demonstrators descended on the streets of central London this afternoon to protest at the bombing of Gaza by Israeli forces.
Waving placards and the black, white, green and red flag of Palestine, the marchers converged on the BBC’s Broadcasting House near Oxford Circus.

Chants of “Free, Free, Palestine” were shouted across London’s busy West End as marchers then made their way to Hyde Park to be addressed by speakers including George Galloway and Diane Abbott.

Organised by the Palestinian Solidarity Campaign and Stop the War, the march passed peacefully, according to most onlookers. Pupils from Ed Miliband’s old school, Haverstock, in Chalk Farm, north London, joined the march, accompanied by a samba band.

Yasmin Rackal, 17, said: “People shouldn’t stand by and watch an injustice. I have little brothers and sisters and if I was in that situation I would want people globally to fight for me.”

Sanum Ghafoor, 22, had travelled from Luton to take part. She said: “It is a massacre of the Palestinians, and the world is staying quiet. The British Government keeps supporting the Israeli establishment.”

One Jewish marcher said he was appalled at the “horrific” images of dead bodies and bombed-out homes being beamed out of Gaza.

But Dan Rosenberg, 43, said while many of his Jewish friends felt the same, they were too afraid to join the march for fear of being abused.

The father of two from north London, said: “It is horrific what is going on in Gaza. It is collective punishment. I don’t know how any human being can stand back while this is happening.

“But it is difficult being here. We have seen the anti-Semitic attitudes and you feel very threatened and scared, but we feel we have to stand up and represent.

“Even standing here we feel quite uncomfortable. You hear people say they think the Jews run the media. Those beliefs are unpleasant, ignorant and racist.

“I have Jewish friends who wanted to come but they felt uncomfortable being here.”

A public appeal for money launched on Friday night to help thousands of Gazans has raised more than £4.5m in less than 24 hours.

The Department for International Development has pledged to match the first £2m donated by the public to the Gaza Crisis Appeal, which will help pay for food, water and shelter

Netanyahu vows tough stance!

After two decades of intermittent “negotiations, including five years of deadlock following Netanyahu’s return to power in 2009, the United States relaunched peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians last July.

But we know the illegitimate state called Israel, never wanted peace nor is it interested in peace. The terrorist-established state wants another PIECE of Palestine and reduce Palestine and Palestinians to tribes as in America, with Indian tribes occupying certain territories but really have no state!

This has been addressed time and again here. I’ve selected a couple of old articles from this blog as examples to prove that peace is the last thing on Israelis minds.. or until Palestinians give up what remains of their land.

Don’t despair though. Palestine shall RETURN to Palestinians. And as long as Israelis keep vowing to take a tough stance, they will eventually find themselves back where they belong: the ghettos of Europe!

Tunisia, Egypt and now Libya!

Dictators are toppled one by one; the most criminal of whom faced the ultimate humiliation then death!

Dictator's Ultimate End

The people have spoken. The “western powers” were quick to congratulate and urge the same people they helped oppress through their puppets, to be mindful of democracy and “positive” change.

Excuse me?

What they really mean is that they wish for a democracy that fits the western ideologies… a sort of dictatorship that we would bless and label as a “democracy.”

What scares the West is that the Arab people want their religious values to influence their communities, eliminate usury and corruption (Sharia “Law”), build an Islamic Empire as one existed in the past during which prosperity and science flourished, poverty eliminated and the Arab/ Muslim world stood united (also Sharia “Law”).

This is when the despicable state of terrorists and pigs will vanish… and the Middle East will be Holy again.

So let the spark continue and burn the tyrants and dictators of the region (who also use what they call democracy to hide their crimes against humanity).

Today we celebrate the demise of Zine El Abidine of Tunisia, Mubarak of Egypt and Gaddafi of Libya.

Tomorrow we shall celebrate the demise of Netanyahu, Abdallah, Assad, Saleh and Al Malki

And then we shall have peace and prosperity.

 

The bill finally passed with an amendment allowing ritual slaughter on the condition that firm scientific evidence is provided within five years to the European Food Safety Authority, proving that slaughter without pre-stunning(?) causes animals no unnecessary suffering.

 

Jewish and Muslim communities are unhappy with the compromise, saying that it puts the future of religious practices into the hands of scientists and avoids the issue of religious freedom. This is a bizarre state of affairs in a pluralist European society. A recent report by the European Commission against Racism and Intolerance notes that the tone of Dutch political and public debate around integration has shown a “dramatic deterioration” in the last ten years. The surprising recent electoral success of the Dutch Freedom Party can be explained by the fact that it provides parliamentary support to the minority cabinet, which in turn seems inclined to protect Wilders, perhaps because of the minority cabinet’s fear of losing its ability to govern.

Some Dutch politicians however, have been outspoken in their call for parliamentary debate about xenophobia in the Netherlands, notably Tofik Dibi, one of seven members of parliament who identify as practicing Muslims. Dutch Labor Party leader Job Cohen has also called for dialogue on the need “to moderate our tone…not to avoid debate but to engage in it openly and with mutual respect.” One hopes that these voices of reason will be heeded.

The common cause of Jews and Muslims uniting against the ban in their concern to protect their traditions of halal and kosher meat is due to the importance both religions place on preventing animal suffering. Many Jews and Muslims view the modern mechanical methods of stunning and killing animals in Western slaughterhouses far more barbaric, and no one seems yet to have come up with a positive scientific measurement of the pain felt by the animals at the point of death by either method.

The arguments for and against ritual slaughter are passionate, subjective and liable to misinterpretation, and provide a potent mixture for populist politicians to exploit when national economies are in trouble and unemployment is rife. Hopefully, the Dutch Senate will reconsider the issue in the light of freedom of religion as laid down by Article 9 in the European Convention on Human Rights, which provides the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion.

The Senate’s treatment of the ban will be a test of this mature liberal European democracy’s ability to provide consensus, compromise or conformity on a divisive issue within a centuries-old tradition of liberalism, human rights and tolerance for religious minorities.

 

As abhorrent the Norway massacre is, it must be quite annoying and “deflating” to the Muslim bashing community of degenerates who wished that the terror act would have been carried out by Muslims rather than one of their “own.” It seems that Christians are terrorists too! We’ve seen that in the massacres and crimes committed in the U.S.A – the likes of Timothy McVeigh, Andrew Joseph Stack III, Jared Loughner just to name a few! Yet, in the U.S., the media would not refer to these degenerates as “terrorists.”

One comment that struck me on a news site, stated:

I am shocked this had nothing to do with muslims. Why were muslims groups claiming they were responsible for the attacks then? 

Who was the “Muslim Group” that claimed credit? Well, someone please share this piece of “enlightening” information. I bet that the claim came from some sadist media reporter or agency who quickly assumed that it had to be “Muslims” who committed the crime, and by being the “first” to report this, their fame and incredible “sources” would become the talk-of-the-town.  Regardless, if such a Muslim group is somehow linked to the terror attack, I would also bet that they will bear a new name – and one which contains the word “Jihad” in it – and we’ll be led to believe such “reports” because, like cattle, we believe whatever garbage we’re being fed.

The sad truth is atrocities like this are a daily occurrence in Palestine. Israelis jail, massacre, kill and ethnic-cleanse Palestinians daily. They even publicly discriminate against non-white Jews in Israel!

Israel is most probably the only country in the world which imprisons women and children of “suspected” so-called terrorists, indefinitely. The world always chooses silence over Israeli terrorism (Deir Yasin, Qana, Hebron, Jenin, Gaza, Jerusalem, International Flotilla, etc.) and their use of prohibited weaponry (cluster and phosphorus bombs against civilians) so as not to upset “Jews” or be referred to as “anti-Semite!”

These so-called Arab leaders who believe they “own” the countries they rule, are earning their place in history alongside Hitler, Sharon, Gaddafi and Netanyahu.

When their tanks attack civilians… but dare not fire on Israeli Occupation forces..

When they accuse the seekers of reform and liberty as terrorists…

When they commit atrocities parallel to those of Israelis against palestinians…

It’s time for these regimes to be toppled and “burnt alive” at the stake! And that’s a little too merciful!

More than 400 people have been killed in Syria across several weeks as the government has cracked down on protesters seeking reform, a human rights group in the country said Tuesday.

Bashar Al-Wahsh (literally meaning The Beast, and is his real legal name) has confirmed the name and proved to be  just like his father: a murdering blood-thirsty degenerate oppressor, who drew criticism for repressing his own people, in particular for ordering the Hama massacre of 1982, which has been described as “the single deadliest act by any Arab government against its own people in the modern Middle East.”

The Beast made no significant changes to the state of politics in Syria, as the Baath Party has stayed in control of the country and the reforms that he promised at the beginning of his rule never materialized.

In a country where Sunni Muslims make up the majority, the “Beast’s” regime is dominated by the Alawite minority, which make up about 12% of the population.

It’s time for democracy in the whole of the Middle East. Israel and Jordan, you’re next! The people have spoken!

The U.S. ignorant foreign policy

The United States is preparing new sanctions against members of al-Assad’s regime who are overseeing the violent crackdown, according to several senior U.S. officials with knowledge of the action. A new Treasury Department executive order targeting senior officials accused of human rights abuses would involve an asset freeze and travel ban, as well as prohibiting them from doing business in the United States.

“The Syrian people’s call for freedom of expression, association, peaceful assembly and the ability to freely choose their leaders must be heard,” Tommy Vietor, a spokesman for the U.S. National Security Council, said in a statement Monday.

The U.S. State Department also issued a statement Monday urging U.S. citizens to defer any travel to Syria.

CNN reported that the United States would welcome the prospect of the Syrian-Iranian alliance being broken, and with it their joint sponsorship of the Lebanese Shiite militia, Hezbollah. There might be the chance of movement toward peace with Israel (though surely not in the chaotic short term). “Peace with Israel?” What for? How does one make peace with terrorists supported by a superpower? Has the U.S. taken notice of the recent Egyptian poll in which over 54% are against the peace-treaty with Israel? When Arabs see their brothers and sisters being massacred and ethnically cleansed by the Israelis while the world looks the other way,  there will be no peace in the Middle East!

Meanwhile, the U.S. remains silent as Palestinians continue to be oppressed, humiliated and massacred by the Israeli Nazi-like (NaZionist) forces! Why wouldn’t the U.S. impose sanctions on this little country of Israeli terrorists? Then we wonder why they hate us!

“Every single member of my family on both sides was exterminated. Both of my parents were in the Warsaw Ghetto uprising. And it is precisely and exactly because of the lessons my parents taught me and my two siblings that I will not be silent when Israel commits its crimes against the Palestinians.”

Norman Finkelstein

American Radical is the probing, definitive documentary about Jewish-American political scientist Norman Finkelstein.

A devoted son of holocaust survivors, an ardent critic of Israel and US Middle East policy, Finkelstein has been steadfast at the centre of many intractable controversies, including his denial of tenure at DePaul University.

“You don’t know who Norman Finkelstein is. He’s poison, he’s a disgusting self-hating Jew.”
Leon Wieseltier, literary editor, The New Republic

Called a lunatic and self-hating Jew by some and an inspirational street-fighting revolutionary by others, Finkelstein is a deeply polarising figure.

“Norman is a very careful scholar. And he feels very passionately about the Holocaust. His parents are both survivors of extermination camps and he was deeply involved in their lives and the tragedies and so on. [He] knows everything about the Holocaust. And when he sees somebody using it, exploiting it, demeaning the memory of the victims for personal gain, he doesn’t like it. I can understand that.”

Noam Chomsky, friend and professor of linguistics, MIT

From Beirut to Kyoto, the filmmakers follow Finkelstein around the world as he attempts to negotiate a voice among both supporters and critics.

“If he were not a Jew – that is, I don’t think he is a Jew. As someone once put it ‘he’s only Jewish on his parents side”. If he were not a Jewish person or a person of Jewish heritage with a name like Finkelstein, nobody would have any doubt that he was an anti-Semite.”

Alan Dershowitz, author ‘The Case for Israel’

He taught me everything—how to be a civil libertarian, a Jewish activist, a mensch
