DR. MOUSSA EL-HADDAD: Well, I am in the middle of Gaza City, in the heart of Gaza City, and the situation is indescribable. If this is not a holocaust, I don’t know what holocaust is. According to the news, they say almost 318 people are dead. The majority of those are civilians. At least 300 of them are civilians. And they say about 1,500 are injured, but a lot of them are seriously injured. The hospitals lack a lot of the necessary staff, instruments, even gauze and medicines, and everything is lacking. Physicians and nursing staff are working around the clock. People cannot find a place in the hospitals for treatment, injuries. And I am sure there will be a lot more of the dead under the rubbles of those buildings that were attacked and demolished. Every now and then, we hear a rocket attack or two. So, there are warplanes in the sky flying all over the time. As I speak to you now, I can hear them up in the sky, the pilotless jets and the warplanes, F-16s and God knows what. The warships in the sea are also attacking from the sea. And attacking who? Hamas? They are not attacking Hamas; they are attacking the people, the civilians. The civilians—I mean, I’m looking at the street right now, the main street of Gaza, Omar al-Mukhtar, and hardly you can see anyone walking there, because every single person is afraid. democracynow.org

On Dec. 23, 2008, activists held a press conference, at 12:30 PM, along with a picket line, in front of the Baltimore City’s Sheriff’s Office, at the main Court House, near the City Hall. They requested a halt, a moratorium, to all foreclosures and evictions in the city, and that the Sheriff’s Office follow the precedents established by the Sheriff of Cook County, Illinois, and the Sheriff of Philadelphia, PA, in this regard. The rally, with the temperature hovering in the low 20s, was led by the “National Network to Stop Foreclosures and Evictions.” The demonstrators also delivered a letter to the Sheriff’s Office setting out their views on the issue.

On Wednesday, Dec. 17, 2008, activists from Code Pink staged a “Shoe-In” demonstration in front of the White House. The rally was in solidarity with Iraqi journalist, Montadhar Al-Zaydi. He recently tossed his shoes at Dubya, at a Baghdad press conference, held with the puppet Iraqi ruler, Nuri al-Maliki. Published reports indicate that Mr. Al-Zaydi, after his arrest, has been subjected to torture. For background, and updates, go to Code Pink’s web site, at: http://www.codepinkalert.org/.
Think you know who Blagojevich is? This is what he was doing just before they framed him. Blagojevich dared to speak the truth and demand justice, which in a completely corrupt system makes him the one sane man in an insane asylum.
“This is a afarewell kiss from the Iraqi people you dog! This is for the widows and orphans and those killed in Iraq!” Iraqi Journalist, Muntather Al-Zaydi yelled in Arabic as he hurled his shoes at George W. Bush on 12/14/2008, during an impromptu press conference in Baghdad.
Researchers from John Hopkins University in Baltimore and the Al Mustansiriya University in Baghdad published a study in 2006, financed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Center for International Studies, that estimates the illegal Iraq war had led to the deaths of 655,000 men, women, and children. A later study In September 2007 by the top UK polling organization, ORB (Opinion Research Business) estimated that up to 1.44 million Iraqis have died violently post-invasion, see: http://www.opinion.co.uk/Newsroom_details.aspx?NewsId=78
Bush and the neocons have committed numerous war crimes and grossly violated the Geneva Conventions through the use of torture and mass murder of civilians. They have used banned weapons such as cluster bombs and white phosphorus. They have committed crimes for which there are not yet laws written, crimes against the earth and the environment. The Bush administration has spread over 1000 metric tons of the deadly U238-isotope, America’s nuclear waste, over Iraq and Afghanistan, causing childhood leukemia and spontaneous abortions to become commonplace, dooming the people of both countries to endless suffering and premature death.
How to Get Out of the United States in 60 Days (with more than the clothes on your back)
By Ezekiel Jones
Things have reached the point in the U. S. where people in target groups should be making plans to emigrate. This is an under-discussed, almost taboo topic that needs to be highlighted now before it's too late.
How much difference can 60 days make? Here's what happened in Germany in the first 60 days after Adolph Hitler, head of a minority party, was appointed Chancellor of Germany. http://www.thepeoplesvoice.org
