Some insight into the Scottish separation vote issue

Monday, July 28th, 2014

“You are in for a considerable upheaval no matter how the vote goes, and allowing the Scots to play the English for suckers in the name of unity will ultimately result in massive disruption and civil unrest.”


Gaza: “More like shooting frogs in a pond…”

Saturday, July 26th, 2014

The following letter to the Toronto Star was published today with only two punctuation changes. To my mind this is quite unusual, and the fact that the Star would publish it indicates that people in general are becoming more aware of the pro-Israel bias of the mass media, and less tolerant of deliberate propaganda.

And now let the weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth begin…

Attack on Gaza: Israel “mows the grass” once again…

Sunday, July 20th, 2014

“During a brief Red Cross-brokered lull, paramedics entered the neighbourhood to retrieve the dead, pulling bodies from the rubble of homes. Dozens of houses over several blocks were destroyed or badly damaged, a scene reminiscent of Israel’s last major incursion into Gaza… Israeli military casualties also spiked in the fighting, with 13 killed Sunday, raising the total number of dead soldiers to 18. Two civilians have also died in mortar and rocket attacks.” (Emphasis added).

“Operation Protective Edge” – Yet another assault on Gaza

Sunday, July 13th, 2014

There is not much need for me to write up anything original regarding the present attack on Gaza; all I have to do is reproduce my comments on “Operation Pillar of Cloud” which took place in 2012. But first, here is an account of the deaths and damage caused by Israel in 2009 which appeared in The Palestine Chronicle on Nov. 23rd, 2012:

“In 2009 when Israel’s 22-day blitzkrieg was over, nearly 1,400 Palestinians had been wiped off the planet of whom four-fifths were civilians and 350 children, and over 5,000 wounded… Israel had destroyed or damaged 58,000 homes, 280 schools, 1,500 factories, water and sewage installations and 80 percent of agricultural crops. The cost to Gaza’s civilian infrastructure was estimated at $660 to 900 million while the total economic cost was put at $3 to 3.5 billion.”
