Professor Frank Fenner has warned that the human race can not survive. As the scientist who helped eradicate smallpox he certainly know a thing or two about extinction. And now Professor Frank Fenner, emeritus professor of microbiology at the Australian National University, has predicted that the human race will be extinct within the next 100 years.
Methane is 72 times worse than carbon dioxide (CO2) as a greenhouse gas (GHG) on a 20 year time scale and industrial leakage of methane (1.5% to 2.2%) has led Professor Robert Howarth, Cornell University, Ithaca, New York, to conclude that "A complete consideration of all emissions from using natural gas seems likely to make natural gas far less attractive than oil and not significantly better than coal in terms of the consequences for global warming."

Jilani, pictured here with his wife and youngest daughter, was shot dead by Israeli police on June 11 in East Jerusalem. Jilani was driving home from prayers, travelling in tightly packed, slow-moving traffic with no oncoming vehicles. Two eyewitnesses told Haaretz that stones were hurled at officers, one of which struck Jilani's car. They said that is when his car swerved, veering from its lane and striking a group of policemen. Several other witnesses said that the windshield of Jilani's car had been shattered, but they were not sure if the damage had been caused by a bullet or a stone. Jilani "got out of the car, and they came after him". "An initial shot knocked Jilani to the ground," "Not just one of them shot, but many of them, and then they started yelling in Hebrew for people to go back into their homes,". Ten metres separated the parked car and the spot where Jilani fell to the ground. The witness said that Jilani was lying on his stomach with several officers gathered around him, and then one of the policemen kicked him in the head. "Then I saw one of them come close to him and shoot him in the face and body,"
"It's clear where they're heading: forced evacuation to FEMA camps of millions of Gulf residents. In this way the NWO will be grabbing an opportunity to unleash martial law on a grand scale in the Southeastern USA, so that we'll all get used to it, like we got used to airport security and torture."
In a startling development, a long-time pro-White activist, Edgar Steele has been charged with plotting to kill his wife. An article in the Spokesman-Review notes “(Edgar) Steele pleads not guilty… (Steele) pleaded with U.S. District Court Judge Candy Dale to release him from jail before next week’s bail hearing to tend to his clients and ‘put my affairs in order.’ The judge declined and ordered Steele not to contact his mother-in-law and wife…. ‘They know me far better than the U.S. government does,’ Steele said. ‘The United States government is doing everything in its power to try to drive a wedge between me and my wife…’ Steele’s wife and son, who appeared to be in his early 20s, declined interviews but spoke with Whelan at the hearing and communicated with Steele before the no-contact order. Steele’s wife cried after the hearing and slammed her hand against a wall outside the courtroom. “I need to be allowed to talk to my husband…,’ she said to court officials.”

I bet you’ve never heard of anti-Palestinism. In Israel and the United States, defaming and delegitimizing the Palestinians is a national sport; but have you ever heard anybody complain about it? Why didn’t Americans get worked up when 1,400 Palestinians were incinerated with Israeli phosphorous bombs? Why did the murder of 300 children in last year’s assault not touch a nerve? Why did it take three long years and the slaughter of eight Turks and a Turkish-American citizen to notice that Israel has incarcerated 1.5 million Palestinians in a concentration camp?
Remember Hitler’s maxim that the bigger and the more outrageous the lie, the more likely the masses are to believe it? Following the results of a recent poll we once again get an object lesson demonstrating that Hitler knew what he was talking about.
