It is time for the Gulf's political and cultural elites to wake up from their stupor and start thinking in strategic terms.
"Arab oil is not more important than Arab blood." These are the memorable words of the late King Faisal of Saudi Arabia, uttered soon after the outbreak of the 1973 Arab-Israeli war in an effort to push the West, especially the United States, to put pressure on Israel to end its occupation of Arab land.
Faisal belonged to a generation of Arab leaders who knew the centrality of the Palestinian question to the survival and future of the Arab people. He also understood the ramifications and risks of challenging the American empire whose policies were influenced and controlled tightly by the Zionists then as, indeed, they are now. King Faisal paid with his life for daring to say "no" to the evil empire which masquerades as a force for democracy, freedom and justice while pursuing an agenda based on imperialism and neo-colonialism.
There are no hostages in the game of geopolitics. Russia’s reaction to the Bin Laden assassination reveals its own dilemma about how best to accommodate the West.
The Kremlin limited itself to a brief statement congratulating the United States for its success in killing Osama Bin Laden, noting Russias’ own firsthand experience with terrorism. The most recent attack was the 24 January bombing at Moscow’s Domodedovo airport by a Chechen suicide bomber that killed 35.
No Russian officials pointed out the illegality of the targetted killing in Pakistan, despite Russia’s sharp criticism of the US and its allies now bombing Libya in defiance of international law, and its loud warning that it will veto any UN resolution about NATO ground troops to assist the rebels there. On Saturday, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that plans by the US, Britain, France, Italy, Qatar, Kuwait and Jordan to aid and arm the rebels and to try to assassinate Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi were blatant interference in a civil war. Lavrov said the international community should focus on stopping the fighting and not “take sides”.

911 is without a doubt the most written about, analyzed and discussed conspiracy in the history of mankind.
Yes, even the official story, “Nineteen fanatical Arab hijackers, masterminded by an evil genius named Osama bin Laden, is a conspiracy between Osama Bin Laden (who isn’t even wanted by the FBI [1q]) and the Arab terrorists whom the U.S. government claims hijacked planes and crashed them in to important buildings in the N.E. sector in the United States [because they “hate our freedoms”].
“Conspiracy” is a REAL word for a REAL act that has existed in human societies in all cultures throughout human history. If conspiracies did not exist, we would not have a word for it. The problem that we face today is that the US Government has arrogated to itself a singular role as a political pontificate that believes that it and its agents in the Justice Department, alone, constitute the only “person” (corporate person) on this Earth who is allowed to use the word “conspiracy” as it employs the charge of “conspiracy” every week in trials to put both guilty and innocent people in jail while deriding and discrediting all others who employ the word as “conspiracy theorists.” Paris Flammonde [2q]
There are inside, outside and even an inside-outside-space conspiracy theory about what really happened on 911.
Test your knowledge of the September 11, 2001 stories. See if you can spot the Terrorist Job (the story), The Inside Job (Global Domination) (the story behind the story), The Exotic Weapon story (another story behind the story) or The Metaphysical story (the story behind the story behind the story behind the story!).
Question 8. Americans and the future Truthers who watched the 9/11 drama believe two large wide-bodied aluminum jetliners crashed into the massive steel Twin Towers. The picture on the left is Flight 175 that doesn’t decelerate or produce any plane wreckage as it disappears in a puff of smoke inside the South Tower. The one on the right, taken by a news helicopter, shows a Boeing 767 coming out the opposite side of the impact zone of the North Tower.
Whether or not you believe that planes were used on 9/11, there is an important question that needs to be asked: Why would the perpetrators bother to fake crashing planes into the WTC towers, requiring them to fake all the crash videos as well when it would be much easier for them to crash real planes into the Towers?”
Option 1 - The two terrorists (who learned to fly jumbo jets from reading the flight manuals found in the cars they didn’t rent) that piloted the planes (that are still flying and/or are for sale according to Jeff Rense) were reported alive as of 9/12/2001. Therefore, if you believe Arab terrorists from Saudi Arabia masterminded 9/11, the question of planes or noplanes is not relevant.
Option 2 - The Neocons were concerned that no one would visit the PNAC website and find out it was a MIHOP (New Pearl Harbor).
The thinking went something like this: Real planes (with or without remote control/on-board computer guidance systems) flying at 470 mph (Flight 11/North Tower) and 590 mph (Flight 175/South Tower) would break up into a million pieces before they penetrated the buildings. People might even believe it was Arab terrorists flying the planes and it wasn’t an Inside Job.
As one person accurately states: it’s the penetration that guarantees that no one will believe the “Arab Terrorists, hate our freedom” story.
Only a computer generated imagery (CGI) of planes would guarantee penetration into the Twin Towers before their fuel tanks exploded.
Option 3 - The military industrial complex wanted to hide their demonstration behind a fake terrorist attack on the Twin Towers. What if the military used two drone 767’s and one of them missed the target? The DEW demo would have to be cancelled. http://killtown.blogspot.com/2007/05/why-they-didnt-use-planes-to-hit-wtc.html
Option 4 - The use of Computer-Generated Video Graphics (CGI fakery) was an impediment to the discovery of the Metaphysical Test of the Earth. On 9/11/2001, TPTB engaged Mike Rivero, a.k.a. John Wenckus, to use fake and/or doctored TV images to create the illusion of real plane crashes at the WTC.
It was the objective of the conspiracy to create an almost impenetrable barrier to the discovery of the Metaphysical Catechism (Test).
Testimony of Mike Rivero
Bugliosi: Good morning Mr. Rivero, please tell the jury what you did before launching your website www.whatreallyhappened.com for the CIA, and whether you are also known as John Wenckus? CNN Removes Picture of John J. Wenckus
Rivero: Yes, I went by the name of John Wenckus when I worked for NASA.
Bugliosi: You have admitted your part in the conspiracy to produce the faked plane impacts with the World Trade Center using CNN Video Fakery/Cartoon CGI.
What technical expertise qualified you for the task?
Rivero: I spent 25 years as a photo imaging expert analyst for NASA. During that time, I consulted in Hollywood on Sci-Fi projects and created the special effects for Star Trek, Stargate and the ABC hit miniseries “Lost.”
Bugliosi: Please summarize for the Jury CGI Video Fakery and the no-plane issue.
Rivero: The objective of the faked airplane crashes was to prevent discovery of the Metaphysical Catechism (Test).
TPTB suffer from OCD when it comes to their metaphysical struggle with the Earth; they don’t leave anything to chance. A real and present danger existed. What if the Earth prevailed (which it did on 9/11), and the profane (middle class) found out about the conspiracy to use humans to weaken the Earth with environmental damage by living in a consumer society?
Then people would stop shopping, watch The Story of Stuff and then go out and form sustainable living communities like Portland City Repair. If that happened in 2001 the TPTB would have been defeated long before October 29, 2008. The Power of Community, Why was I born? Why are we here?
The test designers built into the test a “gotcha.”
Rivero: They knew a scientist, like Dr. Judy Wood, would come forward and debunk Steven Jones. Dr. Wood has presented a compelling case for the collapse that explains the 1,400 cars that were toasted in inexplicable patterns and the dip of the Earth’s magnetic field at the precise moment of the supposed first plane “impact.” Furthermore, she calls attention to the presence of Hurricane Erin off the coast of New York on 9/11.
The test was designed to ensure that no one would listen to Dr. Wood.
Bugliosi: How was that accomplished?
Rivero: They used computer-generated video graphics to fake the plane crashes into the North and South towers, a.k.a. the no-plane theory.
Bugliosi: I’m having trouble. What do no-planes have to do with the no-controlled demolition of the Twin Towers?
Rivero: Actually, everything and nothing.
We knew that investigators would quickly realize the physical impossibility of jumbo jets, being largely aluminum, penetrating the steel frames of the towers.
Look at this image of the second impact, taken from a news helicopter which shows a video composite of a Boeing 767 accidentally appearing from behind a layer mask.
We knew that even an amateur researcher would figure out that digital compositing was used to depict the plane crashes in the news reports and subsequent amateur videos, so then we “had” them.
Bugliosi: I am not sure the jury is following your logic.
Rivero: Everyone on the team realized a legitimate investigator or truth seeker has integrity and a duty to report everything they discover, even if it has no relevance or importance to the events under investigation.
When the investigators reported on the impossibility of a Theory of Controlled Demolition, they would also report that no planes were flown into the Twin Towers. [12b]
Look at this statement from Morgan Reynolds:
“There were no planes, there were no hijackers. I know, I know, I’m out of the mainstream, but that’s the way it is. How could two large wide-bodied aluminum jetliners penetrate massive steel towers and disappear with no deceleration visible, no plane wreckage visible in gashes and none knocked to the ground below the impact zone?”
Reynolds knows he is out of the mainstream and he knows the issue is irrelevant to his discovery that controlled demolition could never explain the collapse of the Twin Towers.
But once he put his no-plane (foot) in his mouth, it became the hyper-straw man by which ALL of his theories could be attacked. [13b]
The crackpot theories like “no-planes, pods, energy weapons, holograms,” etc., were all looked at by many of us many years ago; we found there to be no truth to any of them and deemed them disinfo.
The WTC demolitions are proven and the official 9/11 airliner tales are proven hogwash. This article, the beneficiary of work by many other investigators, proves it. I await the replies of Hoffman and other apologists to reestablish the official, albeit impossible, airliner stories. I expect little more than obfuscation. What really happened? I do not know. What is clear is that the government is lying about the four reported Big Boeing crashes.
I don’t like these theories because they require a level of technology in excess of what’s needed to do the job. Global Hawk + nanothermite = Job Done.
The no-planers actually create the disinfo they peddle, so they’re otherwise known as disinfo artists. Several of them have grievances with the 9/11 Truth movement, so that is the likely reason they create the disinfo and try to pass it off as “9/11 Truth” to make the movement look bad.
“The 9/11 Truth Movement served the dual purpose of vectoring genuine truth seekers to dead ends and branding those who questioned authority and the true nature of reality (the Theory of Controlled Demolition) as insane.”
The Truthers, who saw “there was no break in the building wall between the port engine and fuselage when the 757 allegedly hit the North Tower,” were threatened with violence and banned from conspiracy theory websites.
Everyone else in the “Truth” community kept quiet and accepted Professor James Fetzer’s explanation:
“It’s Tactical. Even if they (the advocates of No Plane Theory) are right, it hurts the movement. Many feel that there is so much evidence of government complicity beyond the issue of big passenger jets that diverting attention to the one thing most people believe that they “saw” is not to our tactical and strategic advantage.”
Bugliosi: Whoa, that’s a lot to take in.
Rivero: Yes, but, if you think about it, you have to appreciate the lengths TPTB were willing to go to keep anyone from finding out about the metaphysical struggle. My favorite ad hominem attack:
What it boils down to is that not a single legitimate research organization in the 9/11 Truth movement supports any of these crackpot disinfo theories. Not scholars, pilots, architects and engineers, lawyers, firefighters, 9/11 bloggers, Loose Change, you name it. Nobody supports these fringe theories.

In February 2003, the Tel Aviv-based Hotline for Migrant Workers (HMW) published a report titled, "Modern Slavery and Trafficking in Human Beings in Israel," saying:
"In September 2002, a new 'Deportation Police' (Immigration Administration) was set up (to) expel 50,000 migrant workers" by year end 2003. Unprecedented in scope at the time, it reflected Israel's longstanding "official policy towards migrant labor."
HMW's report showed a pattern of denying migrant workers basic rights "to such an extent as to result in modern slavery and trafficking in human beings." Ever since Israel allowed non-Palestinian migrant workers entry in the early 1990s, their rights steadily eroded. More recently, HMW said:
"Its primary manifestations include debt bondage, restrictions and violations of basic human freedoms, and renting and selling of workers," policies ongoing today.

In London, at a June 1999 anti-Yugoslavia war rally, Nobel Laureate Harold Pinter scathed US and UK leaders, saying:
"Let us face the truth....(N)either Clinton nor Blair gives a damn about the Kosovar Albanians. This action has been another blatant and brutal assertion of US power using NATO as its missile....to consolidate....American domination of Europe."
Today, Obama doesn't give a damn about Libyans, any more than about Iraqis, Afghans or working Americans. At issue only is Washington wanting unchallenged dominance everywhere, including over the Mediterranean Basin, using two missiles - NATO and so-called rebels, enlisted, funded, trained and armed well before bombing began on March 19.

On April 7, 2011, HaMoked: Center for the Defense of the Individual and the Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI) filed a petition, demanding that Israel's Interior Ministry stop revoking residency permits given East Jerusalem Palestinians.
After its June 1967 annexation, life for Palestinian residents became an ongoing cycle of neglect, discrimination, poverty, shortages, and persecution, compounded by the encircling Separation Wall and worsening daily hardships.
Moreover, though no longer, as permanent Israeli residents, they were afforded the right to live and work in Israel without special permits. However, permanent residency, unlike citizenship, passes on conditionally to children. For example, marrying someone without one and/or the other requires applying for family unification to live together. In fact, Israel treats East Jerusalem Arabs as foreigners, whose rights can be summarily revoked, denied, or severely restricted any time for any reason by civil or military order.

What Ilan Pappe described as "the ethnic cleaning of Palestine," Edward Said called its "holocaust," saying:
"Every human calamity is different, but there is value in seeing analogies and perhaps hidden similarities." He called Nazi extermination "the lowest point of (Jewish) collective existence." Occupied Palestinians today "are as powerless as Jews were" under Hitler, devastated by "power used for evil purposes," not self-defense.
As a result, they hang onto life by a thread, while Israel's military juggernaut systematically reigns terror against them, no one intervening to help. "Is this the Zionist goal for which hundreds of thousands have died," Said asked? Isn't it time for justice advocates to demand for Palestinians what Jews spent decades to achieve.

In the state that made international news this year when three towns passed a food sovereignty ordinance, two bills that would have bolstered them at the state level met with defeat in Maine’s legislative Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry Committee.
Sponsored by Rep. Walter Kumiega, LD 366 was rejected by the Ag Committee on May 11. The raw milk bill would have obviated licensing for the direct sale from farmer to consumer and protected small operations from overly burdensome rules recently imposed at the bureaucratic level.
“Requiring someone with two cows or a handful of goats to invest ten thousand dollars or more to build an inspectable facility doesn't make economic sense,” Kumiega told Food Freedom. “Hand milking is a perfectly acceptable method and does not need the same facilities that a machine milking operation does. LD 366 seeks to restore an exemption that was a standard practice up until two years ago, when it was changed by an administrative decision.”
These days you can’t swing a cat or open your mailbox without being hit by a flood of emails about the memorials, tributes, condolences, and donation sites for the victims of these tragedies that the conspiracy theorists say were created -- not right after the event, but right before the event.
