Russell Tribunal on Ukraine

September 15th, 2014

by Stephen Lendman

The Russell Tribunal (RT) is an activist peace organization. It's known as the International War Crimes Tribunal.

It condemns America's permanent war agenda. It opposes New World Order extremism. Its members include academics, intellectuals and artists.

It's inspired by the BRussells Tribunal. It was named after after famed philosopher/mathematician/anti-war/anti-imperialism activist Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970).

He warned many years ago:

"Shall we put an end to the human race, or shall mankind renounce war" and live in peace. There's no in between.

Previous tribunals investigated war crimes in Vietnam, Iraq and Palestine. Others examined human rights abuses in Latin America and psychiatry.

Fail Britannia - They can't help it ...

September 14th, 2014

Michael Collins

… it's their nature. The United Kingdom (UK) Treasury and the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) were caught red handed trying to scare Scottish voters into voting No on independence in the September 18 referendum (HeraldScotland). The two government organizations did so using confidential information about the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) obtained by the UK Treasury. Based on this insider government information from Treasury, BBC then ran a story (Sep 11) about RBS leaving Scotland before the RBS board decided on its announcement. This had the clear effect of embarrassing the independence movement by showing that a major bank was leaving Scotland, which fed other scare tactics about Scotland suffering should voters choose independence and freedom.

Mae Brussell, the GodMother of Targeted Individuals

September 14th, 2014

by Tracy Turner

Mae Brussell

In the fiction serial X Files, the three characters known as the Lone Gunmen are very loose, fictional representations of true-to-life Mae Brussell (May 29, 1922 – October 3, 1988). Mae was a radio personality sometimes written up almost solely as a JFK assassination conspiracy theorist, but there are many other articles both by and about Mae Brussell.

How Nixon Actually Got Into Power, THE SLA IS THE CIA, and the must-read Operation Chaos and the Assassination of John Lennon are just a few of her works aside from the John F. Kennedy Killing.

Mae Brussell read numerous newspapers, magazines and circulars she subscribed to from the government printing office. Government officials often listened to her broadcasts and subscribed to her mimeographs. Project Camelot, the Nazi Connection to the John F. Kennedy Assassination, and From Monterey Pop to Altamont. OPERATION CHAOS: The CIA's War Against the Sixties Counter-Culture is more Mae Brussell must-reads.

My message to the Jews in light of the Gaza holocaus

September 14th, 2014

By Khalid Amayreh

I realize very well that Jews are not carbon copies of each other. And I also know perfectly well that there are many Jews around the world who truly despise what Israel has been doing to the Palestinian people in your name.

I earnestly commend these conscientious Jews for their morality and human decency. It is these honest and honourable people that enable us to retain the hope that counting on Jewish morality is not a lost cause.

None the less, one must be faithful to one's conscience and intellectual honesty. That is why we must recognize that there are huge numbers of Jews who have found themselves transformed thoroughly into soldiers of darkness and advocates of evil. Today, there are Jews, too many of them, who shamelessly advocate the total annihilation of the Palestinian people. We also know that yesterday, there were many non-Jews who shamelessly advocated the total annihilation of Jews.

We have seen many Jews celebrate the mass murder of Palestinian children. There is no point in denying the undeniable.

Mustafa Barghouti on Operative Protective Edge

September 14th, 2014

by Stephen Lendman

Barghouti is special. He's important. He's multi-faceted. He's a man for all seasons. He's a physician, political activist, and human rights champion.

He supports nonviolent resistance. He's a Palestinian National Initiative (PNI) co-founder. He currently serves as secretary-general.

PNI aims to build Palestinian unity. It does so in struggling for self-determination. It does it by promoting democratic values.

Barghouti is a Palestinian Legislative Council/PLO member. He's a former presidential candidate. Israel rigged Abbas' 2005 election to deny him.

He was harassed while campaigning. He was intimidated. He was arrested. He was expelled from East Jerusalem.

He was excluded from Nablus and Gaza. He was prevented from competing fairly against Israel's preferred choice.

IDF Soldiers Denounce Israeli High Crimes Against Peace

September 14th, 2014

by Stephen Lendman

Netanyahu is a world class thug. He's a war criminal multiple times over. He heads Israel's fascist government.

He wages genocidal war on Palestine. Operation Protective Edge (OPE) is the latest example. It was war without mercy.

Mass slaughter and destruction were horrific. James Petras calls Israel a "genocidal state."

"Citizens and soldiers, criminals and professionals, torturers and sociopaths…coexist within the same person," he says.

Exterminating Palestinians is official policy. It's consciously pursued. It's done with "savage enthusiasm."

MSM Ignore International and Constitutional Law

September 14th, 2014

by Stephen Lendman

A previous article discussed Obama's open-ended Middle East war. It flagrantly violates international and constitutional laws.

They're clear and unequivocal. The Constitution's Supremacy Clause (Article VI, Clause 2) states all US laws and treaties "shall be the supreme law of the land…"

Presidents and Congress have no authority to spurn them. Especially on issues of war and peace.

It doesn't matter. America's last legal war was WW II. Numerous lawless aggression ones followed.

International law is inviolable. No nation may intervene in the internal affairs of others.

None may attack another except in self-defense. None may do so without Security Council authorization. None exits. Expect none forthcoming.

Abbas Blocks Israeli War Crimes Investigation

September 14th, 2014

by Stephen Lendman

He's a longtime Israeli collaborator. He performs enforcer services. He conspires against his own people.

He's a Palestinian Judas. He belongs in prison, not high office. He's well rewarded. He's hugely corrupt.

He amassed an huge fortune. He did so the old-fashioned way. Betrayal pays well. Palestinian suffering continues.

Abbas shares blame with Israel. He collaborates with the enemy. He's done so for decades. A previous article said he knew about Operation Cast Lead in advance.

He supported it. He asked Israel to crush Hamas. What did he know and when about Operation Protective Edge?

Why didn't he forthrightly denounce it? Why didn't he immediately sign the Rome Statute?

Why didn't he demand Israeli accountability? Why didn't he insist Israeli war criminals be prosecuted in the International Criminal Court (ICC)?
