Saturday, July 21st, 2012

“Toronto Police have bluntly refused a Crown request to hand over any disciplinary records they may have on Const. Bryan Thomas.”

Challenging China’s ‘rare earth’ monopoly

Saturday, July 21st, 2012

“The US was once self-sufficient in domestically produced REEs, but over the past 15 years has become 100 per cent dependent on imports… Over the last few years, realizing the dangers of Chinese monopoly, countries like India, Japan and Vietnam have started collaborating in REEs.”

Bulgaria: Deflecting attention from Israel’s problems

Saturday, July 21st, 2012

Although this article appears in an Iranian newspaper, the author, Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich, lives in the United States, and is a public speaker and political commentator.   She has a degree in Public Diplomacy from the University of Southern California, and her analysis will be of great interest to those looking for an alternative to the Israeli propaganda and speculations masquerading as “news” in the mainstream media.

Palestinians ‘consent’ to Israeli occupation?

Thursday, July 19th, 2012

“Under international law, Israel’s rule in the West Bank and Gaza is considered “belligerent occupation” and, therefore, its actions must be justified by military necessity only. If there is no occupation, Israel has no military grounds to hold on to the territories… Israel must either offer the Palestinians citizenship and wait for a non-Jewish majority to emerge in Greater Israel; or deny them citizenship and face pariah status as an apartheid state.”

Looting: No disaster necessary

Wednesday, July 18th, 2012

Like the American media, this British newspaper describes the perpetrators as “teenagers” without referring to their race.  But unlike American news websites, the Mail at least has the courage to show a number of pictures of the rioters, and has not taken down or blocked the video footage the “teenagers” posted on Youtube.

Canada becoming a dangerous third-world hell-hole

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

“…gunfire erupted in an east-end neighbourhood late Monday killing a 14-year-old girl and 23-year-old man and wounding 21 others, including a toddler.”

This could get very nasty, very quickly!  The threat to world peace created by Israel’s setting-up Syria for regime-change is now entering the really dangerous phase and I see no hope for a  win-win result; Russia is determined to challenge the Western embargo against arms to Syria, and leaves Israel and its assorted lackeys no choice but acquiescence or to use force.

Saturday, July 14th, 2012

When the law protecting glaciers first came into affect in 2010, the mining companies involved, including Toronto’s Barrick Gold Corporation, succeeded in having it suspended claiming “irreparable damages” and “an uneasy and uncertain state for company representatives.”

Is Israel heading towards civil war?

Friday, July 13th, 2012

“There are already whole units that the IDF fears using. As men who believe in the inviolable sanctity of the Whole Land of Israel climb the ladder of command, possibilities loom that are worse than refusal: outright mutiny, even decisions by senior officers to deploy their units to prevent withdrawal (from the occupied territories)… Pro-settler religious Zionists are reaching the higher ranks of the military” – Gershom Gorenberg, author, “The Unmaking of Israel”.
