The UN Security Council has been unable to force an end to Israeli attacks against Gaza due to the intervention of the United States. Washington once again used its veto powers on Sunday to block a resolution calling for an end to the massive ongoing Israeli attacks against the Gaza Strip.

The council has only been able to issue a ‘non-binding’ statement that calls on Israel to voluntarily bring all its military activities in the besieged region to an immediate end.

The statement comes as Israel has begun a fresh wave of air strikes on Gaza on Sunday, killing at least six people. At least 230 people were killed and 800 wounded in similar attacks on Saturday. The number of Palestinians deaths has so far risen to 271.

The council called on the parties to address the humanitarian crisis in the territory but has not criticized the Israeli air attacks.

Croatian UN Ambassador Neven Jurica read out the non-binding statement on behalf of the 15-member body that “called for an immediate halt to all violence” and on the parties “to stop immediately all military activities.”

“The members of the Security Council expressed serious concern at the escalation of the situation in Gaza,” he said, as the president of the council.

The council also requested the opening of border crossings into Gaza to address the serious humanitarian and economic needs in Gaza and to ensure medical treatment and a continuous supply of food and fuel.

US representative to the UNSC, Zalmay Khalilzad, defended the Israeli move, saying Tel Aviv has the right to self-defense.

“I regret the loss of any of all innocent life,” he said, adding that Hamas rockets precipitated this situation.

Palestinian fighters in the Gaza Strip say they fire rockets into Israel in retaliation for the daily Israeli attacks against them. Unlike the state-of-the-art Israeli weapons and ammunition, the home-made Qassam rockets rarely cause casualties.

The US, a staunch ally to Israel, has so far vetoed over 40 anti-Israeli resolutions sought by the council since 1972.

Since 2004, Washington has prevented the adoption of four other resolutions that called for Tel Aviv to halt its operations in the Gaza Strip.

The Curse of the Illuminati?

Posted in Israel, Secret Societies, USA with tags , , , , , , , , on December 7, 2008 by indonesiaunderground

by Texe Marrs

“Then he said unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of Man? Is it a light thing to the house of Judah that they commit the abominations which they commit here? for they have filled the land with violence, and have returned to provoke me to anger…

Therefore will I also deal in fury: mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: and though they cry in mine ears with a loud voice, yet will I not hear them.”

Ezekiel 8:17-18

Has an Illuminati curse fallen on America? Is this God’s punishment for America’s citizens blessing the nation of Israel, a nation made up of people who despise Jesus Christ, the Son of God?

No nation on Earth has done more for Israel than the United States of America. It was America’s President Harry S. Truman, a 33rd degree Freemason, who, in 1948, endorsed the proposal for a nation-state for the Jews to be founded in the Middle East. It was also the U.S.A., under Truman, that was the first country in the world to recognize Israel as an independent nation and sponsor its membership in the United Nations.

Since 1948, United States Presidents and Administrations have favored the theocratic, rabbinical State of Israel among all the nations. We have showered the Jewish State with hundreds of billions of dollars in foreign aid, which they never paid back, and we have armed Israel to the teeth with fighter planes, missiles, tanks, and other military hardware. This year alone, the Bush Administration announced it was giving $30 billion more in military aid to Israel. Our leaders even looked the other way when Israeli spies stole America’s most precious military secrets, including the atomic bomb.

That’s not all. The United States has consistently used its diplomatic muscle to shield the Jewish thugs in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem from any accountability for their crimes and genocide against the Palestinians, the Lebanese, and other Arab peoples. We also regularly use our veto power at the UN to knock down attempts by that world body to bring Israel to justice for its growing list of murders and global acts of terrorism, as well as the Jews’ blatant Zionist racism policies.

Paul Crouch, head of America’s largest Christian television network, is an ardent supporter of Israel and the Zionist agenda. He was outed by the Orange County Register newspaper for paying $425,000 in hush money to a homosexual lover. Like many other Christian evangelicals, Crouch is a global laughing stock. Is God blessing America by putting this reprobate at the helm of America’s largest Christian television network?

Christian Evangelicals Endorse Wicked Nation of Israel

Christian evangelicals have flexed their political biceps repeatedly, causing Congress and the White House to bend to Israel’s corrupt foreign aggression and racist conduct. Christian evangelicals, under the leadership of Zionist zealots like Pastor John Hagee, prophecy teacher Hal Lindsey, psychologist James Dobson, the late Reverend Jerry Falwell, prosperity preacher Joyce Meyer, and TV evangelists Paul Crouch and Pat Robertson, actually believe—and teach—that whoever blesses Israel, God will bless, and whoever curses Israel, God will curse. This teaching, they say, requires Christians—indeed, the U.S.A. itself—to refrain from any and all criticism of Israel and the Jews.

Moreover, they claim that America is obligated by God to bless Israel and its people with scads of money, the blood of our young men and women in uniform, and anything else required or desired by the Jews. Remember, they insist, if America blesses Israel, God will bless America.

But what if America “blesses” Israel and instead of blessing America, an angry, unhappy God sends a multitude of evil America’s way? Indeed, if that happens, will it not be the case that the Christian evangelicals have all along been dead wrong about this, that they have misread the Bible? What if—think about it—God decides to punish America for helping the corrupt, criminal, antichrist nation of Israel and heaps misfortune after misfortune on America’s head?

Sixteen Ways God is Cursing America for Blessing A Corrupt Israel

Mainly to further the Israeli agenda, the United States is embroiled in two foreign wars, in Iraq and Afghanistan. As a result, flag-draped coffins of slain U.S. military personnel are regularly brought home by transport aircraft. Is this an example of how much God is blessing America for its support of Israel and the Jewish Zionist Agenda?

Well, the fact is that America is the world’s greatest benefactor and blesser of Israel. We bless the Jews in countless ways, and yet, consider the many curses that America is now suffering:

  1. America is now suffering a staggering economic collapse; with banks and corporations failing, prices skyrocketing, real estate being dumped, jobs being lost, the whole bit. Our federal deficit and national debt are staggering.
  2. America is riddled with narcotics, meth, and other illegal drugs.
  3. America is saturated to the hilt with pornography and blasphemy against God.
  4. America’s political leaders consistently lie, cheat, fornicate, kill and otherwise disgrace our once, great country.
  5. The whole world thinks of the United States as a rogue, warmongering nation led at the top by a moron, George W. Bush.
  6. The United States is now engaged in two foreign wars simultaneously. Over 4,000 of our young people have been slain and tens of thousands maimed with limbs torn off by roadside bombs in far-off Iraq. Thousands more are casualties of the Afghanistan conflict, a war we are losing to the dreaded Taliban. And our crazy, bamboozled leaders, manipulated by the powerful Jewish lobby (ADL, AIPAC, AJC, etc.) are hankering to plunge headlong into yet a third war—against Iran.
  7. America is suffering an illegal alien invasion. Some 20 to 40 million illegals are inside our nonexistent borders—no one really knows the real number, but it’s huge. Their care and welfare is costing us tens of billions per year, and the illegal aliens are taking millions of jobs away from unemployed and desperate American workers.
  8. Our Christian TV evangelists—men like Joel Osteen, Kenneth Copeland, and Paul Crouch—push positive thinking, feel good theology, and a smorgasboard of other nonsense.
  9. Our nation’s warped children are showing sick effects of having imbibed too much “gangsta” rap and heavy metal rock music and watching too much sorcery and occult TV cartoons. Many youngsters are on Prozac, Ritalin, and other mind-altering drugs.
  10. Our nation’s teenagers and even many adults idolize and want to be just like their decadent idols—Madonna, Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Britney Spears and the rest of the Motley Crew of Hollywood. Oh yes, there’s also Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie O’Donnell, and similar cretans—all of whom are adored, admired, and paid fabulously for their vulgar, profane jokes, blasphemous conduct, etc.
  11. Crime waves roar not only in American cities, but in small town America. Rapes, murders, kids killing parents, parents killing kids, car jacking, the list goes on and on. Lock your doors, folks, the bad guys are now breaking down doors to rob suburban dwellers, too.
  12. The police in America are corrupt, abusive, and often incompetent. Call 911 in many locales and nothing happens. But get on someone’s blacklist and a black-uniformed, masked police Swat Team may just show up at your residence, ready to slay your pets, frighten your kids into tears, and take you and the Missus off to jail. Then, they discover, “Whoops, wrong house.”
  13. Virtually every merchant, every appliance repairman, every auto mechanic in America has become a shyster, ripping consumers off. Identity theft is commonplace.
  14. Bribes and pay-offs are now S.O.P. for city officials and politicians, from lowly city councilmen to the halls of Congress.
  15. America is rapidly becoming a Police State, as our liberty and constitutional rights are systematically stripped from us, and Big Brother’s high-tech spy apparatus bears down on citizens more each day.
  16. We have just handily elected as President a man, Barack Obama, who endorses both gay marriage and the horrors of partial-birth abortion.

Black-uniformed, masked police are becoming commonplace in America. Big Brother’s apparatus is bearing down on law-abiding citizens more and more everyday. Is this because America is “blessing” Zionist Israel?

George W Bush still lies about Iraqi inspections

Posted in Iraq, USA, Who is The Real Terrorist? with tags , , , , , , , , , , on December 6, 2008 by indonesiaunderground

It looks as if that pattern – of Bush lying and the Washington press corps nodding along – will continue.
In what’s been called George W. Bush’s first exit interview, the outgoing President continues a lie that he first unveiled several months after launching the Iraq War, justifying the invasion by claiming that Saddam Hussein didn’t let the UN inspectors in.

Like previous times when President Bush has used this lie, it went unchallenged by the journalist who heard the false claim, in this case ABC News anchor Charles Gibson.

According to the text of the ABC News interview, which was released Dec. 1, Gibson asked Bush, “If the [U.S.] intelligence had been right [and revealed no Iraq WMD], would there have been an Iraq War?”

Bush answered, “Yes, because Saddam Hussein was unwilling to let the inspectors go in to determine whether or not the UN resolutions were being upheld.”

Of course, the historical record is clear: Hussein did let UN arms inspectors into Iraq in the fall of 2002 to search any site of their choosing. Their travels around Iraq in white vans were recorded daily by the international news media, as they found no evidence that Iraq had WMD stockpiles, even at sites targeted by U.S. intelligence.

Hussein and his government also declared publicly that they didn’t possess WMD, including providing the United Nations a 12,000-page declaration on Dec. 7, 2002, explaining how Iraq’s stocks of chemical and biological weapons had been destroyed in the 1990s.

However, still set on invading, Bush forced the UN inspectors to leave Iraq in March 2003, a departure that was followed within days by his “shock and awe” attack on Iraq, beginning March 19.

Several months later, with Hussein’s government ousted and with the US military coming up empty in its search for WMD caches, Bush began his historical revisionism by insisting publicly that he had no choice but to invade because Hussein supposedly had barred UN inspectors.

On July 14, 2003, Bush told reporters:

“We gave him [Saddam Hussein] a chance to allow the inspectors in, and he wouldn’t let them in. And, therefore, after a reasonable request, we decided to remove him from power.”

Facing no contradiction from the White House press corps, Bush continued repeating this lie again and again in varied forms.

On Jan. 27, 2004, for example, Bush said, “We went to the United Nations, of course, and got an overwhelming resolution – 1441 – unanimous resolution, that said to Saddam, you must disclose and destroy your weapons programs, which obviously meant the world felt he had such programs. He chose defiance. It was his choice to make, and he did not let us in.”

  • Color of truth

As the months and years went by, Bush’s lie and its unchallenged retelling took on the color of truth.

At a March 21, 2006, news conference, Bush again blamed the war on Hussein’s defiance of UN demands for unfettered inspections.

“I was hoping to solve this [Iraq] problem diplomatically,” Bush said. “The world said, ‘Disarm, disclose or face serious consequences.’ … We worked to make sure that Saddam Hussein heard the message of the world. And when he chose to deny the inspectors, when he chose not to disclose, then I had the difficult decision to make to remove him. And we did.”

At a press conference on May 24, 2007, Bush offered a short-hand version, even inviting the journalists to remember the invented history.

“As you might remember back then, we tried the diplomatic route: [UN Resolution] 1441 was a unanimous vote in the Security Council that said disclose, disarm or face serious consequences. So the choice was his [Hussein’s] to make. And he made a choice that has subsequently caused him to lose his life.”

In the frequent repetition of this claim, Bush never acknowledged the fact that Hussein did comply with Resolution 1441 by declaring accurately that he had disposed of his WMD stockpiles and by permitting UN inspectors to examine any site of their choosing.

Prominent Washington journalists even have repeated Bush’s lie as their own. For instance, in a July 2004 interview, ABC’s veteran newsman Ted Koppel used it to explain why he – Koppel – thought the invasion of Iraq was justified.

“It did not make logical sense that Saddam Hussein, whose armies had been defeated once before by the United States and the Coalition, would be prepared to lose control over his country if all he had to do was say, ‘All right, UN, come on in, check it out,” Koppel told Amy Goodman, host of “Democracy Now.”

In the real history, Hussein did tell the UN to “come on in, check it out.” But faux reality had become the trademark of the Bush presidency — and its supporters in the press corps.

  • Choosing war?

The Washington conventional wisdom eventually embraced another fake belief, that Hussein provoked the war by misleading people into believing that he still possessed WMD.

In line with this bogus version of history, “60 Minutes” correspondent Scott Pelley asked FBI interrogator George Piro, who had debriefed Hussein in prison, why the dictator kept pretending that he had WMD even as U.S. troops massed on Iraq’s borders, when a simple announcement that the WMD was gone would have prevented the war.

“For a man who drew America into two wars and countless military engagements, we never knew what Saddam Hussein was thinking,” Pelley said in introducing the segment on the interrogation of Hussein about his WMD stockpiles, which aired Jan. 27, 2008. “Why did he choose war with the United States?”

This “60 Minutes” segment never mentioned the fact that Hussein and his government did disclose that it had eliminated its WMD. Instead Pelley pressed Piro on the question of why Hussein supposedly was hiding that fact:

“Why keep the secret? Why put your nation at risk, why put your own life at risk to maintain this charade?”

After Piro mentioned Hussein’s lingering fear of neighboring Iran, Pelley felt he was close to an answer to the mystery: “He believed that he couldn’t survive without the perception that he had weapons of mass destruction?”

But, still, Pelley puzzled over why Hussein’s continued in his miscalculation.

Pelley asked:

“As the U.S. marched toward war and we began massing troops on his border, why didn’t he stop it then? And say, ‘Look, I have no weapons of mass destruction,’ I mean, how could he have wanted his country to be invaded?”

It apparently never matters to the major U.S. news media (nor to President Bush) that Hussein and the Iraq government did declare that they had no WMD and did let the UN inspectors in to check.

Now, with the new ABC News interview, it looks as if that pattern – of Bush lying about the circumstances of the Iraq War and the Washington press corps nodding along – will continue until Bush’s last days in office.
