Palestine: The Missing Narrative. Paolo Barnard

Excellent Fact based Video.
Terra nullius (a land of nobody) originates from the horrific man made Talmud that doesn’t classify non-Jews as humans. Therefore, according to that thinking, then Palestine was of course empty, the racism inherent by Zionists is a consequence of that. Thankfully many Jews (but mostly only the non-empowered ones) distance themselves from the filthy aspects of that library, even though many Jews do hold varying degrees of Zionism.
Paolo forgets to mention the strong Christian Zionist movement in the 19th Century. See: http://vimeo.com/4625542Paolo said Balfour said nothing about the Palestinians. That is incorrect. The Balfour declaration contains:
“…it being clearly understoon taht nothing shall be done to prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine…”
Clearly giving some words of reassurance to the Palestinians (which Rev. Stephen says were knowingly insincere). I like the way Paolo exposes the British plots to get the Paletinan farmers to sell to the Jews and revealing that public land and water, salt and electricity awareded to the Jews almost exclusively to the Jews.He does say about the time of WWII, “The Jews in 1939 rightly flock to Palestine” – I disagree that it was right that they should have done this. The move to the United States was the right move, which many of them made.I strongly suspect the British didn’t just find themselves one day on the wrong foot. My suspicions are that the British leaving was part of the plan. The constant empowerment by the British of the Jewish Zionists via military training, allocation of resources and of course the British establishments ties to Zionism itself  suggest – at least to me they do – that the Brits deliberately made this situation to provide them with an excuse to leave. The utter inaction towards Zionist terrorist acts, in which British people were killed and assassinated and the willingness of the UK to allow the singing of Zionist lies that Israyhell was created due to the Jewish holocaust.

I am very happy he says “The Arabs missed an opportunity for peace with the UN partiotion plan in ’47… that is a LIE” and he goes on to show haw the UN tried to sell the Palestinans a sack of sewage.
Also good was the mention of the Jordanian betrayal of the Palestinians. Read this excellent book.
Gaza: Dec 2008 Jan 2009 Cast Lead also shown to have been a planned event.
“Deception is the dominant theme. Why? Well it’s very simple… To manipulate Israeli public opinion into backing one of the most injust realtiies in the modern world – the continued ethnic cleansing and occupation of Palestine and to the same thig with western public opinion, that must continue to back this unjust reality the occupation and ethnic cleansing of Palestine…
…The Zionist project had always wanted to ethnically cleanse Palestine and to use any means to do this.”
Excellent.
Thank you Paolo.
One more thing… The ‘ovulation’ of Israyhell, which Paolo and Stephen(surprisingly) misses out on when the Christian Church opened the floodgates to Usury, buy way of John Calvin and so forth.

On the Syrian Snipers

You can see some footage of these alleged snipers (murderous assassins is a better description I feel) at Information Clearing House: Who Are These Snipers In Syria? (Video) These videos are said to show devastating head shots by snipers in Syria.

If you read the comments, you will see suggestions that these snipers are Israyhelli snipers. The more I think about that, the more annoyance I feel, No, not because I have any sympathy for that filthy murderous imposter of a once magnificent God fearing state (thousands of years ago), because I don’t. I want to see Israyhell wiped from the political map and those Zionist activists hung from a slowly constricting rope.

What I find annoying is something I’ve seen in “alternative view” holding people for some time now [note: it hasn’t escaped me that this could be a result of manipulation]. These people can only think in binary. They can only entertain one of two views. Anything more than that and well… meltdown.

In their minds, those Israyhelli snipers can just march into Syria and do anything they want. Of course there is no Syrians who ever have had this training. Oh no! Never. There are no forces; military/paramilitary/police that have long harassed the people. That tanks are mobilised right now against the people protesting isn’t in fact a sign that these snipers being Syrian is wholly consistent.

Stupid idiots.

Bipolarised fools in denial of a tyrannical regime trying to retain its grip onto power. Power which has seen the anti-human  actions of the Israyhell pass with impunity. Syria has been struck my Israyhelli missiles a numbr of times. Syria did nothing. Assad is probably paid to do nothing. The guy’s a schmuck as some NY Jew might say.

Over the years, credible stories about Syrian collusion in the USUK’s ‘extraordinary rendition’ program, e.g. Maher Arar. Oh, but don’t let your bipolar disorder switch off here, please, label him as a CIA agent or something crap like that. Go on, deny his torture. Tell you what you enter those Syrian torture dungeons or Egyptian dungeons, or Tunisian totrure dungeons and get yourself beaten black and blue, lashed with shredded cables.he was a US plant right? Then come out (if you are lucky enough) and say it never happened.

Who is saying all this Israyhelli agents are on the streets of the Arab countries? Who knows, but it looks well connected to the ACLU. That homosexual ‘tolerance’ promoting body that strangely seems to be speaking out against most instances of USUK fascism than anyone else(good) therefore denying others a voice of opposition groups like Muslims, thereby benefiting from the bipolarisation of people minds and preventing, say, an real Islamic voice from emerging.

Clever sods, and Muslims support them like fish eating the hooked worm.

Mind you, where are the Muslim voices to challenge this homo-foisting ACLU ‘opposition’ group? It’s not like there are actually many Muslims standing up for an equal say. The Muslims are being told to and/or being encouraged by their leaders to shut the hell up and accept whatever crap ges lobbed at you.

These so called self proclaimed leaders are truly miserable. Islamic leadership has never been so utterly crap. And as for these western Imams, oh boy. An arm band float in a pool of lava would be more useful than these people. Well, maybe not. These western Imams who refuse to criticise the hideous acts of their government or these tryants in places like Tunisia, Egypt or Syria etc etc. are actually useful, but not to Muslims or Islam.

It was hilarious to hear one of them issue statements of support to the unarmed ordinary people fighting oppression on the strret of Cairo, while they cowered in the US Embassy: I propose this is used as the new definition of Islamic leadership. Leading you to…

Dear oh dear.

Yeah, this offend some people. At times, ones slumber needs a sharp slap on the face. This is it.

Smearing Wikileaks And Julian Assange

I [afghancentral.blogspot.com] was going to post on the inevitable smears on Assange. Fortunately Chris Floyd at Empire Burlesque has done it quicker and better:

 We have the President of the United States — who has already openly proclaimed his “right” to assassinate anyone on earth, including American citizens, without the slightest due process of law, simply at his arbitrary command — now feverishly expanding the use of death squads, whose stealthy night raids on sleeping villages have already killed a vast number of innocent civilians in Afghanistan (as the Wikileaks documents show). This same administration is now running “black ops,” secret armies, proxy wars and other covert activities in more than 75 countries around the world. That is to say, the Obama Administration is now murdering people in their beds, fomenting bloody ethnic conflict, supporting and/or carrying out acts of terrorism, spreading corruption, assisting dictators, arming warlords, spreading hate and suffering all over the world — and doing it knowingly, proudly. (“Evil in broad daylight” indeed, as Arthur Silber details here.)  

And these are the moral paragons who have now turned their machinery of lies and smears against Wikileaks. For make no mistake; although the rape charges were manufactured in Sweden — which, incidentally, is where some of Wikileaks’ servers are located — they emanate from the proud deathlords in Washington. Indeed, didn’t we hear just a few weeks ago that the Peace Laureate’s people had launched a campaign of pressuring foreign governments to put fetters on Assange and his organization? Now Sweden’s center-right government — no, Rush, Sweden is no longer the super-socialist fairyland of your nightmares — has obviously hearkened to the master’s voice.
But although this first foray has been rebuffed, it is certain that what we are seeing is the beginning of a concerted effort to destroy Assange as a public figure and thereby discredit the work of Wikileaks — and by extension, the truth of its revelations.

 

   

And smearing, of course, is just the first step. If that doesn’t work … well, the avowed and openly proclaimed proponents of assassination certainly have other, more “prejudicial” methods at their disposal, nicht war?

Oi Tony, if you topped yourself you would have done some good in your ruinous life.

When Blair dies, I’m, going to try to dance of his grave. I will celebrate the day of his death and many more millions will breathe a sigh of relief that this hideous liar will no longer be able to kill.

I do hope that he’s not buried in the grounds of the Knesset ‘cos then, my little planned dance (and a little corpse mutilation ;) ) might be a wee bit difficult.

In the mean time, while ‘ol forked-tongue killer is alive, I’ll give you a promise – ready to click ‘save’ spooks?…: If I have the opportunity to punch the living daylights out of him, I WILL.

There!

Anyway the murdering old toad just wont shut the hell up, neither will he just vanish from sight. Not only has lie meister general bLiar been trying to drum up support for war against the Iranian people, he been going on about the threat of radical Islam, to which someone pointed out something like:  ‘its strange how threat of death and destruction (via supposed Islamic radicalization) far outweighs Bliar’s actual death and destruction.’

The guy’s a pathological liar, and he just couldn’t refrain himself could he, saying he ‘cried for Iraq’s victims’. BOLLOCKS. I will NEVER believe that.

Look in the eyes of a killer:

I see a mask. A mask that is continually suffocating his conscience, knowing that if he ever relinquish its grip, the resulting torrent of emotions and endless monumental guilt would never allow this man to do anything other than kill himself.

Killer Bliar is due to appear (God, it’s as of he a movie star and no doubt his mask advises he think of himself in that way) at Waterstones Piccadilly, London, next Wednesday, 8th September. He said of the Metropolitan Police (who are going to ‘look after his security) that they were

“fabulous and they will do whatever we ask them to do” but they shouldn’t be asked to commit resources unnecessarily.

How dare this man be able to use the command a police force in this way (a police force headed by man years by another total scumbucket Ian Blair who oversaw the 7-7 terrorist bombings in London 7th July 2005). And it it TOTALLY unnecessary for them to protect a known international tyrant and leader of mass infanticide.

The fleck of excrement, Bliar in case you just started reading the post at this paragraph,  also said

“The book is selling fantastically. There are people – particularly now the BNP apparently say they want to get in on the action – you end up just causing a lot of hassle for people and cost when there are better things for the police to do and it’s not as if we need to do it.”

Typical bLiar. He simply cannot comprehend that people can oppose the real live ‘snuff video’ alternatively known as his prime ministership. He equates decent human beings not guilty of murder to the BNP. Absolutely astounding.

What a detestable piece of crap this blair thing is.

Oh how I look forward to dancing on his grave.

PLEASE PASS ON TO ALL.

 

Divorcing humanity.

Humans sure suck. In many ways, I suck too. Hardly a day goes by (unless I lock myself away) when I don’t see humans being/talking/doing crap. I  think I want to divorce humanity.

Selfism: I heard some time ago a supposed saying of the prophet Muhammad (saw) that there will come a time where a man is weeping at a grave wishing it was him inside the grave and not having to live in the outside world. I feel that quite often. If I had to give my life for something, I’d have to be damn convinced it would have meaning. Trouble is, in isolation deaths have almost zero meaning. Even the countless millions who gave their lives in the wars and caused of the 20th century didn’t really achieve anything did they?  I’m not sure giving ones life can be meaningful these says, which makes the pain while weeping on top of the grave much more painful.

I am actually, honestly speaking,  afraid to die. I think I shouldn’t be, but I am. This may display a lack of faith, which is weird ‘cos I think I have a good belife on God (peraps I’m deluding myself?) but one things for sure I’m can’t imagine anything that would break my faith in God (Oh Rabb, please spare me in testing that assertion).

My issues with the human species seem like they will never end. Cue the Jewish/Israyhelli/Zionist assassination of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh member of Hamas. Brits are and have allowed themselves to be spun by the Zionist British Government and opposition(!) into a stupid debate about fake passports. (Although this blog looks at 9-11 stuff, other than this brief mention of the parallels with 9-11 ‘hijackers’ identity, and the significant Israyhelli connections there, I’m not going to say more about it)

For heavens sake idiots, every government will issue fake passports, That the Zionist parasites fake or even steal their surrogate mothers, i.e. the UK should acually be a nobrainer. Passports have no meaning to the elite. Passports are merely a device which the elite gains/holds some form of control over us. It resembles people getting themselves into a flap about unorthodox protocols in relation to the farting, deficating, urinating, snoring, belching, snot producing  kween. 

The REAL issue is the murdering/thieving Zionist state of Israyhell which is “caucasionally pervasive”. They act with impunity. They hald much of the world by the gonads.  Israyhell will do WHAT EVER IT TAKES, in line whith the perverse philosophy it is following. It is unstoppable, but don’t whatever you do that that to mean one shouldn’t resist. Even if resistance is futile, it certainly isn’t meaningless and it is absollutely moral

Israyhell (unless you think this so called “Israel” with all it does, is the manefestation of a divine nation (may God forgive me)) ushering in the False Messiah. It’s €likely to me to be utterly connected to Gog and Magog if not Gog and Magog themselves. If all this mens Israyhell feels it’s time to use it’s nukes, it WILL launch those nukes. That it’s managed to stifle/distract global opposition and isn’t so much in YOUR face doesn’t makes its world shaking agenda any the less signiicant or vile.

Israyhell is the keystone in the the prophecy to doom.

The number of Jews who reject Israyhell are as one Hamas politician told me, measurable by the handfull. True Torah Jews, Jews against Zionism, Naturei Karta… mere handfulls of great men in possession of the near absolute truth and understanding of their religion. Although out of respect for these good people and even the “atheist Jews” (who criticise Israyhell e.g. Finkelstein etc who still hold a perverse view that Israyhell has some ‘right’ to exist!) I try not to use the word Jew in labeling Israyhelli crimes, it is beyond doubt that most Jews are supportive of Zionism.

So stop the stupidity over real/fake passports. Know thine enemy and realise they will do what the hell they like. Worse then racist/supremacism, it’s inverted and incorrect divine supremacism.

By their deeds you shall know them.

SPEECH BY TUN DR MAHATHIR BIN MOHAMAD AT THE CRIMINALISE WAR CONFERENCE AND WAR CRIMES TRIBUNAL 2009 AT PUTRA WORLD TRADE CENTER, KUALA LUMPUR ON WEDNESDAY, 28 OCTOBER 2009

WAR AND CRIME

1. As one of the convenors of this conference on the Criminalisation of War, I must express my appreciation for the number of people who have shown enough interest to attend it.

2. I hope and pray that we can take yet another step towards a war-free world, toward making war no longer a solution for disputes between nations, by making it into a crime instead, making those who resort to aggressive war as criminals who must be punished for the crime of the mass killing of people, which is what war is about. If the killing of one person is murder, a crime deserving of the most severe punishment, why must we regard the mass killing of people as legitimate and proper? There is something wrong in a creed that regards the killing of one person as different from the killing of people in their thousands and millions of people. The thousands and millions are made up of single individuals in the final analysis. The mass killing in war cannot be regarded as anything other than the mass murder of individuals who make up the masses. Since individuals are being killed, the fact that the individuals are killed together doesn’t alter the fact that individuals are killed and therefore the killing must still be regarded as the killing of individuals which constitutes murder. And those responsible for the murder of these individuals must therefore be murderers and must be regarded as criminals and punished accordingly.

3. But the vast majority in this so-called modern civilization of ours still distinguish between the killing of an individual and the killings of millions of individuals in the situation called war.

4. One very intelligent individual when asked to join the movement to make war a crime, replied that we have had war for 7000 years and therefore we must accept wars. It is mind-boggling that there can be intelligent people who believe that since something had been done for 7000 years, then it should continue to be done.

5. There must be a lot of things which we have been doing for thousands years which we don’t believe should be done now. Abuse of human rights in its various forms are now not acceptable. Discrimination against women, child labour, public execution, the gibbets, torture, slavery etc etc are no longer acceptable now.

6. It is admitted that there are places where some of these practices are still carried out but generally the civilized world rejects them even if they had been common for thousands of years of their history.

7. So why cannot we reject war? Why cannot we make war a crime, a dastardly crime deserving of the most severe punishment.

8. Because we do not regard war as a crime, the mass killings have not stopped. In the 1st and 2nd World Wars 70 million people were killed. But the world today accepts this with equanimity. They were wars, so the killings were justified.

9. And today we are still seeing people being killed in wars, as the great military powers resort to it to resolve any problem, big and small which they may have with other countries, especially those which are no match for them.

10. 7000 years ago the number of people killed in any war must be very small. This is because the capacity to kill was limited. The weapons would be wooden clubs or sharpened sticks.

11. Then the more “civilized” began to invent new weapons. From stick to stone to ever harder metals. Knives, swords were invented. Sharp edges or points made killing much easier.

12. Bows and arrows followed, extending the reach of the weapons of war. The Chinese invented gun-power but not for killing. Mostly the explosives were for chasing imaginary devils and dragons, which threaten to swallow the moon.

13. The Europeans came across the gun-powder and immediately thought that it could be used in war for throwing projectiles a longer distance than the catapult or bows and arrows.

14. From then on the search for ways to hurl weapons further and further has never stopped. Apart from that the killing power of the missiles had been enhanced continually.

15. Now we can literally throw, shoot or rocket the most destructive weapons right round the globe and beyond. We now have the capacity to literally blow up this whole planet and every living soul on it.

16. The search for the most powerful weapon should really be over. Everyone should now know that a war can actually exterminate the whole of humanity, including the very people who use the nuclear weapons. Using it would amount to mass suicide. Both the victors and their victims would perish. War would therefore be totally counter productive.

17. Imagine a nuclear war with bombs and nuclear warheads being hurled at each other. If there are survivors, radiation would kill them all.

18. Truly war should no longer be an option in the settlement of disputes between nations.

19. But the fact is that the powerful nations of the world were not affected by the devastations in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Mostly they see nuclear weapons as deterrents against attacks against themselves. Far from outlawing nuclear weapons as they did with poison gas, they began developing ever more powerful nuclear weapons and delivery systems.

20. As a result the United States and Soviet Union, France and Britain rushed to acquire the knowledge and the capacities to produce nuclear weapons. During the Cold War years the United States and USSR built up huge arsenals of nuclear warheads. Between them there are more than 20,000 nuclear warheads sufficient to destroy the whole world many times over. China, France and Britain also have huge arsenals of nuclear weapons.

21. Germany and Japan are not allowed to posses nuclear weapons. But Israel, India and Pakistan have nuclear capabilities.

22. There seems to be some basis for the idea of nuclear deterrents. Although the United States appeared ready to use nuclear weapons during the Cuban crisis, in the end it decided to compromise by removing its nuclear missiles in Turkey which was obviously threatening Russia.

23. It was fortunate that both the leaders of these two nuclear powers came to their senses in time. Otherwise the world would have been devastated by nuclear weapons in the arsenals of these two countries.

24. We cannot afford to have this kind of brinkmanship. We cannot live in fear of one or two persons destroying this world and its 6 ½ billion people. We cannot allow our civilization to be terminated by some crazy President.

25. A nuclear deterrent is just too risky and too very dangerous. Maybe it was this thought that prompted the idea of nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation.

26. But all these international resolutions were non-starters because the big nuclear powers blatantly ignored them. As a result we see other countries developing their own nuclear weapons. There is much ado about these countries having nuclear weapons. These countries would be mad to use the few primitive nuclear weapons that they have. Should they do so the powerful nuclear countries would wipe out these countries from the surface of this earth?

27. The real danger is still from the rich and powerful nuclear powers. It is they who must reduce and finally eliminate their nuclear weapons if they want to have the moral ground to enforce the non-proliferation treaty.

28. Unfortunately these great nuclear powers are still developing, testing and producing more nuclear weapons. They talk of safe nuclear bombs, of small nuclear bombs and tactical nuclear bombs. Already they are using depleted uranium in their bombs and missiles which are causing diseases like cancer to spread among hundreds of thousands who had survived their attacks.

29. But they are not stopping there. They have developed bombs to penetrate deep into the ground so that bomb shelters buried deep in the ground would provide no protection.

30. New weapons are being developed as the industrialists see profits in the research and developments of weapons. In this their military has cooperated and played a big role as they would be the only organisation to need and use the new weapons.

31. The industrialists not only produce sophisticated new weapons but they invariably follow up with the defences against the weapons they have developed. Nations, rich and poor have been forced to buy and equip their armed forces with these offensive and defensive weapons or systems.

32. After this the industrialists would come up with a new weapon that could penetrate the defence system they had sold previously.

33. Should the country refuse to buy these the producers would hint at offering the weapons to the potential enemy of the country. Fearing the enemy would posses the weapon, which could penetrate its defence, the country would be forced to acquire the new weapon.

34. Then the industrialist would come up with a new defence system against the weapon they had just sold. Again the buyer would be forced to buy this defence system.

35. And so this would go on endlessly. The industrialist would wax rich even if the weapons would not be used. This is not my imagination. It is happening now even to Malaysia. We have to buy expensive aircrafts and submarines although we don’t expect to go to war with anyone. And we have to upgrade them every now and then.

36. The weapons merchants would try to create an arms race between neighbouring countries or rival countries in order to be able to sell the arms that they produce. The arms race would create fear and tension between countries, yet fearing mutual destruction few of these countries would go to war with each other. Not being used the expenditure on arms would be wasted. The urge to try out these weapons in real life situation would be irresistible. And so proxy wars and wars against weaker nations would be started.

37. But the countries of the world never learn. They would upgrade their weaponry continuously even though they know they have very seldom any use for the weapons.

38. Along the way the industrialists and the military have developed a symbiotic relation. Always desirous of becoming more and more powerful, the military would build a case for the need to develop new weapons against the possibility of attacks by potential enemies whose weapon might be superior.

39. Unable to recoup the money spent the industrialist marketed their weapons to the world. They work hand-in-hand with their Governments, the military, the banks and the media. Together they and their sales talk would be irresistible.

40. The weapons trade has developed and grown until it has become a big part of world trade. The effect of this trade is to impoverish countries which have to continually upgrade their weaponry at considerable cost and the arms race which invariably follows as neighbouring countries compete in upgrading their weaponry.

41. The weapons producing countries are still spending trillions of dollars conceiving, inventing, developing, testing and producing weapons. This is being done at the behest of the military, but often the defence industries would come up with frightening scenarios which could be handled by their latest multimillion dollar weapons. It is not the defence of their countries which they care about. It is the money to be made.

42. Any new scientific discoveries would be thoroughly studied for use in weapons. Thus firecrackers, noxious gases, bacteria, chemicals, metal alloys, new metals, lasers, radio waves, electrical and electronic devices, composite material, carbon fibres, and just about anything would be examined, analysed, studied, tested for applications in weapons, to make the killing of people more efficient.

43. Almost without exception some application would be found for use in killing people. Radio control toy cars and model aeroplanes have now evolved into remotely controlled, unmanned aircrafts, land and sea vehicles to deliver bombs and other explosives and even biological and chemical weapons without risking the lives of the attackers.

44. The technology for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) which could carry cameras and radio transmitters has now been applied to full-size military aircrafts. The pilot would be on the ground facing their numerous consoles, monitoring and controlling the aircrafts by radio, programming their flight and releasing their murderous cargo of bombs or firing their rockets. The pilots are not exposed to any danger by the bombs and rockets they fire from hundreds and thousands of miles away. Without the risk of being killed the urge to war and kill is enhanced.

45. The pilot of Enola Gay had to fly his plane thousands of miles to be over Hiroshima city in order to drop his beloved Little Boy to kill 100,000 people and destroy the whole city. He ran the risk of being attacked by enemy fighters and being shot down and killed.

46. The modern pilot can now fly the more sophisticated radio controlled bombers from his base in his country to drop the atomic bomb precisely over the target city. 100,000 people or even a million people would be killed and the whole city totally destroyed, just as was done by the pilot of Enola Gay. And all this can now be done between games of cards or watching a football match over a glass of beer. The pilot risks nothing at all yet the men, women, children, the aged, the sick and the disabled would all be killed and many thousands more wounded, losing their arms and legs, having their abdomen ripped open and their guts spilling on the ground.

47. Hospitals, schools, markets, shopping complexes and buildings of all kinds would be pulverised. Fires would start and a fire-storm would suck up all the oxygen, suffocating the survivors.

48. Even if no nuclear material is used, the power of modern explosives and the size of the mega bombs – each weighing more than 15 tons would do enough damage to devastate whole cities.

49. There would be nowhere to hide. The new bombs and rockets have the ability to pierce through earth and concrete to great depths before exploding so that those in bomb shelters would no longer be safe, be protected from the new weapons.

50. Noxious gases and radiation would kill rescuers, and would be blown for hundreds of miles, killing and spreading diseases of all kinds.

51. The great military powers have all these destructive weapons and delivery systems. They know that they don’t need huge armies to launch their attacks. All they need is a few men manning the consoles and they can literally wipe out hundreds of thousands or millions even of people, devastate whole countries and render them no longer habitable.

52. They have this capacity, they have this power. But they are still researching, developing, testing and producing more and more lethal weapons, gleefully predicting their use in future wars. They cannot conceive of a world at peace.

53. They believe that only they can be trusted with these weapons. The world need not fear them. They are reasonable people, caring people whose respect for human lives cannot be questioned. But are they?

54. They may not use the nuclear weapons and other WMD in their possession yet. But knowing that they have and knowing that no one would dare to attack them, they have shown their willingness to provoke weaker nations and to attack them with their so-called conventional but no less destructive weapons.

55. They claim their use of the power to kill people indiscriminately as making the world safe for democracy. They seem to think that only they as democrats have a right to live, to be safe and secure. It is right and proper to make those who are not democratic unsafe and insecure. It is proper to kill other people in order to promote democracy.

56. They fail to appreciate that the people who are not democratic are also people, are human beings whose right to live are no less than those who are democratic. The people who would be killed are innocent of any crimes against the democratic people, even if their leaders may be dictators. To deprive them of their rights to life must constitute as heinous a crime as the deprivation of the rights to life of innocent democrats.

57. Human rights is not for democratic people only. Every human life is sacred; every person has a right to live. Those who say that only democrats have a right to live in security are no less authoritarian than the dictators the democrats condemn. In fact in many cases authoritarian leaders or rulers have given their people a better life than some democrats whose countries have been made unstable and insecure because of the weaknesses and uncertainties of the democratic systems.

58. What I am saying is sacrilege of course. But if we look at recent events we would not fail to notice that it is the democratic countries which have been quick to use violence, who have violated international laws and shown disregard for the very human rights they so strongly advocated. It is they who resort to wars, to killing people to achieve their national agenda. Truly they are hypocrites.

59. Irrespective of whether the warmongers are democrats or not, we must regard war as a crime. No matter how just may the cause be, wars of aggression must still be regarded as crimes, crimes on a grand scale for that is what war means.

60. I am aware that in struggling to make war a crime we are calling for a radical change in the human mindset and value system. War had been with us since prehistoric times. Whenever human communities came into conflict with each other, they would resort to what we call “war” to resolve their conflicts i.e. they would kill each other so that one of the other of them would be defeated or cease to exist.

61. The primitive people of the past knew no other way but to kill and exterminate the opponents.

62. But today we claim to be no longer primitive. We claim to be civilise. We look upon killing as a heinous crime. We want every country to uphold human rights and the Rule of Law.

63. Besides today the population of the world is ten or more times bigger than the primitive populations of just a few centuries ago. Modern wars kill vast numbers of people. In the two World Wars 70 million people were killed. The number of seriously wounded and maimed for life is countless. And the devastation wrought is beyond imagination as whole cities were wiped out.

64. In the wars of the past, battles were fought on battle fields. The people killed were largely soldiers who had been trained to kill and were equipped to defend themselves.

65. Today everyone, combatants and non-combatants, male or female, the old, the young, the children and the new born, the sick and the incapacitated – all of them would be killed and wounded. They have no means to defend themselves.

66. They may not seek shelter underground even because diabolical new bombs have been designed to penetrate deep into the earth, to pierce concrete and to explode and to destroy the shelter and all in it.

67. Besides killing everyone, the whole country would be devastated, reduced to rubble. Water pipes, barrage and dams, power lines, and power generating plants would all be destroyed.

68. Those who survive the bombs and the missiles would have no food and water, no electricity, no toilets and no shelter of any kind. Disease would spread to decimate more of the survivors.

69. Truly modern war is total war sparing nothing and no one. Our capacities for killing and destroying have passed the limit that the world and its population can bear. We are now capable of wiping out the whole human race and render this planet uninhabitable.

70. Even if the war is limited i.e. confined to a pair of countries or region, it would still be inhuman as in most instances the aggressors would have such superior capacities to kill and destroy that gross injustice would be done. The weaker countries would not be able to defend themselves. Frequently they would be the only one to suffer while the aggressors continue to live in peace and security.

71. And when the war ends with victory for the powerful, only the vanquished would be blamed and punished. The victors would demand reparations although the vanquished had suffered more.

72. There is a need, to uphold justice, a need for the people including the leaders who launch the wars to be made accountable for the death and destruction resulting from their decision, their instruction and their command. It does not matter whether the aggressors win or not. They must be regarded as guilty and their leaders must be tried and punished, punished severely. Only this would deter the aggressive from resorting to war.

73. The United Nations was set up by the victors of 60 years ago and they still control and direct the Untied Nations today. Even the courts are under the control of the victors, in particular the veto powers.

74. For so long as the United Nations and its agencies are under the direction of the victors of 60 years ago, we cannot expect fairness and justice from them for the crimes of killing people in wars.

75. We can only expect fairness and justice if the agencies, in particular the Security Council and the international courts are made up of truly neutral people with no stake in the matters being decided. In particular the courts must be free and independent and must hear all complaints by both the victors and the vanquished without fear or favour.

76. Because we are not going to see such an independent court in the foreseeable future PGPO (the Perdana Global Peace Organization) has taken the initiative to set up a tribunal. We may be accused of being biased but we find reluctance on the part of neutralists to participate in our initiative. There is evidence that even those who are neutral fear retaliation by the powerful.

77. Since we cannot wait for the neutralists the tribunal we have set up is made up of judges who have been trusted to be impartial, fair and just. They will act in accordance with the rules and regulations which have been drawn up and be subjected to international laws as well as natural justice.

78. If the accused persons fail to present themselves then they may appoint counsel to represent them or failing that we will appoint counsels for them.

79. The proceedings of the courts will, as far as possible follow the usual court procedures under the British Common Law System.

80. The Commissioners will determine whether there is a case to be heard. Only if they find that there is will they submit their findings to the Tribunal. Then the victims or their proxies and representatives will present their cases.

81. The rest is up to the tribunal.

82. We may not be able to carry out the sentence passed by the Tribunal. But we hope Governments and NGO’s world wide will take note and try to make the punishment meaningful at least by ostracising the guilty ones.

83. We seek moral force as physical force will not be available to us. But the important thing is to make people everywhere appreciate the horrors of war and the criminal who without fear of any retribution have so carelessly issued orders for hundreds of thousands of innocent people to be killed, many to be tortured and for whole countries to be devastated.

84. We believe that eventually the peoples of the world will come to accept that war is a crime and will condemn the warmongers and regard them as criminals. And when this happens we may see the world becoming a more peaceful place.

85. That is our hope. It will take time for the mindset of the denizens of this planet to change with regard to the nature of war.

86. We may not see this happen in our lifetime, at least for most of us.

87. But the fact that we are not likely to see it in our lifetime must not stop us from this noble struggle. As Confucius said, a journey of thousand miles begins with the fist step. Without taking the first step the journey will never be made at all.

88. What we are doing is to take that first step.

89. God willing other steps will follow. Man must come to their senses some day. It will be a journey worth starting even if it takes a thousand years.

90. May God give us strength to struggle to eliminate the killing of people in the quest for solutions to human conflicts.

91. May Allah help us make war a crime, the worse crime that the human race can be guilty of.

Cynthia McKinney’s speech:

Cynthia McKinney
Flouting International Law and the Failure of International Institutions
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

October 28, 2009
 
To all of you here, I continue to be amazed by Tun Dr. Mahathir and Tun Dr. Siti for their vision, understanding of politics in the real world, and their willingness to confront the purveyors of evil in order to make the world better for all of us.

This Conference and Tribunal are the culmination of thousands of hours of hard work and is an incredible investment on behalf of justice.

Everyone in this room today is hungry for justice.  We are impatient for peace.

War is criminal and leaders who take their countries to war must be held accountable.

But sadly, we need Dr. Mahathir’s leadership even more than ever now because of the abject failure of national and international institutions to hold accountable those who have the power to call nations to arms.

It was Haris Silajdzic who said, “”If you kill one person, you’re prosecuted. If you kill ten people, you’re a celebrity; if you kill a quarter of a million people, you’re invited to a peace conference.”

That, I believe is an indication of the total and complete collapse of the system of accountability that is supposed to mark the progress of man.  Rogue operators are able to foment death and destruction, murder and torture, and general sociopathic recklessness and get away with it.

Sometimes, those rogue operators are Presidents and Heads of State.

What are the people to do when their justice system fails to render justice?

I believe we have seen a proliferation of People’s Tribunals because it is clear that many national justice systems and our international justice system rarely deliver justice.

Shortly after the outbreak of the “War on Terror,” the people of Japan came together and correctly saw that, amid the failure of international institutions to hold the United States accountable for war crimes in Afghanistan, they, themselves would have to do it.  So, the International Criminal Tribunal for Afghanistan was born.

The Japanese Tribunal found President George W. Bush guilty of war crimes for attacking civilians with indiscriminate weapons and other arms and also issued recommendations for banning depleted uranium munitions and other weapons that could indiscriminately harm people.  The Tribunal recommended compensating the victims in Afghanistan and reforming the United Nations for its failure to stop the U.S.-led operation there.

Even in the domestic setting, those seeking justice seldom find it inside U.S. courts.  In the U.S. setting, injustice is all too often reserved for those without money, without power, and without white skin.

One need only look at the plight of Hurricane Katrina survivors who still want to go home, but they have no right of return.  That’s because the developers, facilitated by weak or ineffective elected leadership, swooped in early and quickly and staked their claim to the people’s land.  Only the financial crisis has slowed the pace of the organized theft.

Consequently, Hurricane Katrina survivors, themselves, organized a People’s Tribunal to try U.S. elected leaders for committing multiple crimes against their own people.  I was a Co-Convener of this Tribunal, and we found all levels of government, including President George W. Bush’s Executive Branch of government guilty of Crimes Against Humanity.

The Brussels Tribunal, about which we will hear more later, has filed a brief in Spanish courts against U.S. Presidents and other Heads of Government responsible for war crimes and crimes against humanity in Iraq.  Unfortunately, under tremendous pressure from the rich and the guilty, Spain is in the process of changing its universal jurisdiction laws and that removes that venue that was available for the people to get even a hearing.

So, rather than survey the juridical landscape with despair, some have gone one step further and attempted to serve warrants on the obviously guilty in their capacity as citizens.  One such individual is John Boncore, also known as Splitting-the-Sky.

Splitting-the-Sky is a Mohawk, member of the American Indian Movement, that was targeted by the United States government in its infamous and illegal Counter-Intelligence Program, known as COINTELPRO.  On March 17th of this year, Splitting-the-Sky was arrested in Calgary, Alberta, Canada where he tried to serve a citizen’s warrant for the arrest of President George W. Bush who had been invited to Canada to give a speech.  Splitting-the-Sky has asked me to testify at his March 2010 trial and I intend to be there.

In the advent of this War on Terror, it is clear that governments are straying far away from the wishes of the very people who elect them.  I served twelve years in the United States Congress and while I was there, I:

1.  Filed articles of impeachment against George Bush, Dick Cheney, and Condoleeza Rice;

2.  Voted against every Pentagon appropriation, considering it immoral to spend so much money on war when millions of our children go to bed hungry every night;

3.  Wrote legislation to ban the use of depleted uranium munitions;

4.  Was the first Member of Congress to ask the Bush Administration of the September 11, 2001 attack on the United States, what did it know and when did it know it;

5.  Led the Congressional Black Caucus Task Force at the 2001 World Conference Against Racism, defying President Bush’s boycott.

In December of 2007, I tried to take humanitarian supplies to the people of Gaza after the outbreak of Operation Cast Lead and the Israeli military rammed and destroyed our Free Gaza boat.

In June of this year, I tried to take crayons to the children of Gaza and the Israelis hijacked our boat, kidnapped us, took us to Israel, where I spent seven days in an Israeli prison because I wanted the people of Gaza to live–as I have been given life.

George Galloway finally got me into Gaza with Viva Palestina, U.S.A.

But my point of view was a decided minority in the powerful halls of Washington, D.C.

I left Washington, not because I chose to, but because the Israel Lobby inside the United States targeted me.  They targeted me because I dared to believe that all human beings, including Palestinians, have human rights.

In 2007, at a peace rally in front of the Pentagon, I declared my independence from a national leadership that had caused my country to become complicit in war crimes, torture, crimes against humanity, and crimes against the peace.

I joined the Green Party and in 2008, ran for President of the United States.  I traveled the length and breadth of my country and went around the world carrying the message of truth, justice, peace, and dignity.

That is how I arrived here.  Because people who want peace are drawn to Kuala Lumpur.  The people of Malaysia long ago learned that there can be no peace where there is no justice.

As the coup in Honduras unfolds, and countries are able to kill, maim, and attack other people with impunity, we must not give a pass to the new President of the United States whose slogans were “hope” and “change.” Sadly, “Yes We Can” has become “But he didn’t mean that he would.”

The people of the United States await action on jobs, the  economy, the war, the budget, education, and health care.  Yet, President Obama is responsible for overseeing the largest and swiftest transfer of wealth out of the hands of the middle class in the history of mankind:  over $12 trillion gone and another commitment for an additional $12 trillion whenever the bankers need it.

Meanwhile, the people of the U.S. scrape by on food stamps, unemployment, while they pray not to get sick, because that will bankrupt them.

The situation continues to deteriorate even as Nobel Peace Prize winner President Obama waits to announce his decision to increase the already 68,000-strong U.S. troop presence in Afghanistan.

Adding insult to injury, President Obama has sent his Justice Department officials into courtrooms across America to defend the illegal acts of the Bush Administration.  I have warned the President that he risks becoming an accessory to Bush’s crimes if this continues.  Now, the New York Times has picked up on the theme headlining:  “Bush’s Cover-Up of Abuse Turning into Obama’s Cover-Up.”

But, it was President Kennedy who reminded us that we do not want a Pax Americana enforced by U.S. weapons of war; he said, “What we seek is a genuine peace, that makes life on earth worth living—the kind of peace that enables nations to grow and build a better life for their children.”

If we had democracy in the U.S., we would not have war.

All of this is why we are now in Kuala Lumpur.  If Kuala Lumpur is the peace capital of the world, then it is to here that we must come for justice.

I’d like to introduce a song now that has been banned in South Africa, but that deserves to be heard all over the world.  It is a song about war and Gaza.

Thank you.

Notes on International law pertaining to the execution of war crimes by Bush, Blair et al.

Some of these notes are patchy. sorry about that, they will remain so until I have time to fully expand upon all of them.

Carl von Clausewitz theory of war. Frankfurter. When the judiciary engage in illegal acts, the only appeal is to the conscinece and condemnation of the people. War OF Terror torture victim said to his captors, I don’t know what you want of me. “We’ll fill in the blanks, you just sign the confession document’ said his captors. In Guantanamo a War OF  Terror torture victim was brought a written confession and was told if he didn’t sign it he would be executed. He signed the confession as that he may get to a court (intested of being stuck in the current torture camp). He said there was no end to this. A physchaitrist went to him and gave him detailed instructions as to how to commit suicide. Tazi to the dark side – a movie includes US soldiers testimony about the things they did to their victims. Musharraff’s book ‘in the line of fire’ said he received millions in payment of counties from the capture and selling of al Quaida / Taleban ‘suspects’.  The psychological effects {of torture} were worse than the physical effects. Every 6 months we were forced to take injections. They didn’t know what was in them but they were told it was influenza jabs. They felt drowsy, lazy and sleepy. Sami al Hajj: After injections they became dizzy, some when insane. They promised him american citizenship and care(/education?) for his family if he agreed to work for the CIA. Abu Graib female torture victim (Ms. Abas Hamidi?) was arrensted for apparently being linked to (funding) the Iraqi Resistance. Offers of clothing was used for leverage for compliance by the Americans. They had women and children at Abu Graib which they attempted to keep hidden from the occasional media ‘tour’ then Abu Graib became known. She was placed at the open doors of a US helicopter on the way to Abu Ghraib and was told it was so that if there was any firing on the helicopter they would be hit and not the US soldiers. The US tried to get info from her about Dr. Huda Hamash.

1977 treaty covered the supression of terrorist bombings. Judge F. Boyle, Judge Shad Saleem. 1984 Torture convention says NOBODY can be subjected to torture. 1977 treaty protocol 1 and 2 dealt with terrorism < Judge F. Boyle. Female judge = Niloufer Bhagwat.  Proceedings from London peace conference 8th August 1945. US Army field manual. Nuremberg may have been ‘victors justice’ but after Nuremberg, the law used in Nurembers was unamamously (globally) agreed upon.

9) World Tribunal On Iraq – The New York Hearings”… http://www.blip.tv/file/293217 (something similar to the KL conference to Criminalize war)  Special thanks to George Dutton, on Craig Murrays website
Synopsys: http://www.deepdishtv.org Part of Deep Dish TV’s extensive video coverage of the war on Iraq. See also our 12 part series “Shocking and Awful” and our coverage from the final session in Istanbul of “The World Tribunal on Iraq” at http://www.deepdishtv.org. Have leaders of the United States committed war crimes in Iraq? The evidence is beyond doubt or questiiom. The verdict is YES. The World Tribunal on Iraq was a global citizens inqiry of conscience that examined the charges of criminality in the U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq. Modeled after the Satre-Bertrand Russell Vietnam War Tribunal, the WTI held 16 sessions around the world and assembled outstanding panels of jurists and witnesses to expolre and expose the ugly reality and intentionality of the American destruction of Iraq. Hearings were held in Genoa, Rome, Barcelona, Seoul, Mumbai, Brussels, Hiroshima, Copenhagen, New York City, with the concluding session in Istanbul, Turkey. In New York witnesses included Peter Weiss, Ayca Cubukca, Roger Normand, Mike Hoffman, Jenifer Ridah, Dr. Gert Van Moorter, Asil Bali and John Buroughs. Jurists included Eve Ensler, Hamdi Dabashi and Ibrahim Ramey. The film is overwhelming. Do not be complicit with the U.S. goverments war crimes. Show this evidence to as many people as possible.
