24 Hours To Save The [lives of the] Malyshevs

24 Hours To Save The Malyshevs

by craig on Oct 20th in Uncategorized

Mikel and Nina Malyshev’s family have been told by the UK Border Agency that they have been moved from Yarls Wood to an undisclosed location before deportation to Uzbekistan tomorrow. The UK government continues to refuse to acknowledge the terrible human rights situation in Uzbekistan in general, or the fate that awaits the Malyshevs in particular. No reply has to date been received to a fax to the European Court of Human Rights asking for a suspension.

Please take action – contact your MP, and contact William Hague and Teresa May. The UK government cannot be allowed to continue to pretend that it does not know about the human rights situation in Uzbekistan.

Please repost this and my appeal yesterday on any website on which you can.

UPDATE

Could someone kindly give Amnesty International a call and see if they will urgently contact the British government on this one? They have run cases recently against Uzbeks being deported back from the Ukraine and from Kazakhstan. I have to dash to a meeting on another asylum case.

Craigs appeal yesterday:

Vicious and Uncaring Deportation

by craig on Oct 19th in Uncategorized

Further involvement of the British state in the callous ruining of lives today. Mikel and Nina Malyshev have been taken to Yarlswood Detention Centre and will be deported to probable imprisonment and torture in Uzbekistan on Friday 21 October.

The Home Office continues to insist in asylum cases that there is no human rights problem in Uzbekistan. But no serious authority outside government doubts that Uzbekistan is one of the worst human rights abusers in the world. Unfortunately the lives of Mikel and Nina Malyshev are to be sacrificed to the British government’s agreement with the Karimov regime to provide transit for supplies to the British military in Afghanistan.

It is noticeable that, since the current British government came to power, no government minister or official, nor the British Ambassador to Uzbekistan, has made a single reference to Uzbekistan’s terrible human rights abuses, including over 10,000 political prisoners, absolutely no free media or assembly, banning of all opposition parties, millions of children used as forced slave labour and torture and extra-judicial killing on a massive scale.

In fact such is the British government’s enmity towards the people of Uzbekistan I am afraid that Mikel and Nina will be sacrificed without a thought. They have been living around Swansea for years as valued members of the local community. They have not claimed state benefits and have done much voluntary work. Nina’s daughter is today in labour, brought on early by her mother’s detention. The total number of Uzbek asylum seekers in the UK is in the low dozens, escaping the cruelest regime on earth. I understand and share indignation at fake asylum seekers, but we should be deeply ashamed at our vicious attitude to genuine cases like this.

Please send messages to your own MP, to William Hague and to Teresa May, via this website. You may help save a life.

You may also wish to send a message to their own MP, Hywell Francis, who yesterday refused to help, saying “Haven’t I done enough already?” Not just cruel but lazy with it.

Hillary Clinton starts an official visit to Karimov on Sunday to mark the resumption of US arms supplies to Uzbekistan, which were suspended after the massacre of 800 pro-democracy demonstrators in Andijan in 2005.

Criminalize War, Torture, Democracy, Iraq, 9-11 and some Jews

Two Zionists who called themselved Jews are in a Chinese restaturant in Manhatten. They discuss the diaspora but get stuck when it comes to China. They call the waiter who promptly makes his way to their table.

“My friend and I were talking about the Jews and we were wondering about the Chinese Jews. Is there any Chinese Jews?”

The puzzled waiter pauses and says with a strong immigrants accent “I think there is none”. The amazed Jews asked him again, in disbelief the Jews had no presence in China. This time the waiter says “I will check for you” and goes off.

A minute or so later he returns.

“Well? said the Zionists, tucking into their braized trotters, “is there any Chinese Jews?” to which the waiter replied.

“Sir, we have apple Jews and orange Jews, but no Chinese Jews”

I heard that joke roughly as above, some time ago. It didn’t contain the word Zionists however, just Jews. I put the word Zionists in it because it is those people who call themselves Jews but are actually Zionists that I hate. There is a difference. But the traits of Zionism, turning a blind eye to the manufacture and propagation of Israyhell means (in my minds eye) that MOST Jews are bad Jews. The world has about 12-16M Jews (strangely the same number as before and after the holocaust if you warp your mind about that one – so report people accused of anti-semitism) and the number of them who support the theft and continual theft of Palestine are the majority.

There are great Jews however, Jews which could well be better in Gods ‘eyes’ than some Muslims, myself included, but these people are so few and far between. It is the Zionist killers, corporate and banking heads who themselves lay the claim to be Jews. Why then can this label not be used to identify them by? The answer is because it would include those great Jews I am deeply proud of. These Jews, a handful, protest against the creation of Israyhell and the Shaoh on it’s people. They research and denounce Zionist crimes against the Jews and they understand full well the threat these Zionists pose not just to Judaism, but monotheism and on an individual level, a threat to all people on the planet.

For it is the Zionist who call themselves Jews who pull the strings. George Galloway speaking yesterday the the Forum to Crimilalize War jumped on a great researcher, K. Gajendra Singh, an author who writes articles for www.informationclearinghouse.info [1] and http://www.uruknet.com/ [2] when Mr. Singh mentioned the Jews contol the banks (or did he say the media? – or both???). That statement was factually correct and Mr. Singh didn’t accuse “The Jews” of anything, yet George rather sharply took what was said as being an attack on all Jews. He said Jack Straw wasn’t Jewsish (I actually think he is) and Bush’s cabinet wasn’t Jewish (he mentioned about three – but avoided the Jewish ones that were in Bush’s cabinet) and I think he said Bush wasn’t a Jew and he did say Rupert Murdoch wasn’t a Jew. Well George, you don’t have to be Jewish to be a Zionist, which is intertwined with rank greed and power via corporatism. Just becasue ALL the string pullers don’t calim to be Jews, does not in any way mean they don’t work to the favout of the Zionists…. And they DO work in tandem with Zionists as they share common perspectives in the sence that they have a perverted superiority complex which not only breeds high aggorgance amongst their circle {or inverted pentagon}, but invites dislike and hatred upon them. And rightly so!

George doesn’t do well for himself when he rapidly starts cautioning people for using the Jew word, as he sometimes takes it out of context. George also can quickly spin peoples words into directions they did not mean.

As for democracy, GG himself is on record as saying the tories and labour are two cheecks of the same arse yet advocates Democracy (presumably based on a sililar style – perhaps with PR) as the best solution. Yet he said when defending himself for not voting for Cynthia McKinney (GG suppoted Kuchinicg in the primaries, then Obama in the 3 horse run off) as he said his choice was ‘rael politik’. So George defeated his own arguement about voting. He would of course say Vote for the alternative aprties, such as Respect Renewal, but applying his logic, voters should vote Tory or NeoLabour instead as only they have the chance of getting in. So the procedure of democracy will simply elect the one head of a two headed beast.

The modern record shows, voteing out one piece of scum like Bush and electing a new piece of scum like Obama, that democracy as we know it is bankrupt.

I advocate an end to the party system. I think this would go a long way to solving the problem. Some Muslims shriek at ‘democracy’ and they have a point. According to ‘western’ democracy, man can make the forbidden, legal e.g. homosexual sex, Mercy killings, Abortion and I would dare say, pre-emptive strikes too! But Muslims are surely aware that a council elected the Kalifah. One could say there was some democracy there, and even say if democracy was offered, then rejected again, then that too is democracy as the ‘peoples’ desire not to have what we know of democracy is actually a democratic choice.

Well as usual, I am falling asleep at this computer and I must end here. I’ll correct the usual poor language later, and try soon to give more feedback on the  Criminalize War and Tribunal, although I would like to end by saying Sami al-Hajj and Mozzamam Beig’s speeches today were both horrifying and excellent. There’s still 220 prisoners in Guantanamo and probably thousands more in US spearheaded hell holes across the world. 

Can’t sleep till I’ve mentioned the glorious Iraqi Resistance. It was good to hear them mentioned and some information given out as to their steadfastness and achievements. Most agreed to their legitimacy. Their cause it without question, one that is utterly justified. On day 1 of the conference JUBA the legendary sniper (false or whatever) had hsi name displayed on one of the slides.

I have to say the case to criminalize war was very powerful and comprehensive. Iraq is an utter nightmare by ALL accounts. The US and those who pull its strings want to leave a permanently sick people behind to man the oil pumps, but the noble Iraqi Resistance will never allow that.

Even 9-11 was discussed by Prof. Michel Chossudovsky and Ex-PM Tun Dr. Mahatir Mohammaed as being False Flags. Lauren Moret agreed and suggested other conspiracies too – vaccines and depopulation and DNA sabotage was mentioned, and Cynthia McKinney when she mentioned the counter intelligence programmes (COINTELPRO). Getting back to 9-11, Prof Chossudovsky mentioned the BBC (and CNN) news reporting WTC-7 collapsed 20 minutes before it did actially collapse (the Jane Standley reporter with Philip Hayton as anchor) and also “OBL in a Rawalpindi urology ward on 10th Sept 2001 – a place impossble not to meet CIA agents as anyone whose been to Rawalpindi will know” (near exact quote}

I think it was Moazzam Beig who said Africans were shipped from Africa to the American Hemisphere shackled in chains in the slave trade, but the same thing has happened again with the Guantanmo bay prisoners.

WAR SHOULD BE CRIMINALIZED. Please investigate this matter thoroughly yourself. I’m confident you’ll arrive at the same conclusion.

I really need sleep now.

Never mind the killings, hey guys.

It escaped my notice that in mid to late May 2009, British killer, David Milliband MP to be specific , ‘appeared’ on spirit21’s blog. spirit21 like dave, don’t bother to mention the small matter of over a million dead (and counting) not the massacres in Afghanistan and Pakistan, neither did any of them mention the shameful lies (as identified by Craig Murry) about Britains role in torture (and extraordinary rendition). See:  http://www.craigmurray.org.uk/archives/2009/06/discovering_tha.html and http://www.craigmurray.org.uk/archives/2009/06/miliband_lies_a.html. Questions about Milliband trying to stop scruitiny of UK involvement in torture were being asked around the time of mid-late May.

Keep it up, that’s the spirit.

Sleep well, the both of you.

Try not to let the screams wake you.

Nakbah day. How many more?

Zionist death fetish

Many who are not directly affected by the theft of Palestinian lives, homes, land, future and hope, tend to focus our attention on the Palestinian (akbah) only on anniverseries. But for the Palestinians, EVERY day is a Nakbah day. Thankfully the Zionist game is being exposed like never before.

Here follows a press statement from COMPLETE, an umbrella organisation of NGO’s whose members reject Zionism and who do are active in trying to end its necromatic manefestations.

61 years of nakbah

Statement begins:

Today, the 15th of May marked the anniversary of an-Nakbah or the catastrophy in Arabic. It refers to the colossal human tragedy that unfolded in Palestine on 15th of May 1948. Sixty one years ago, on this day, some 800,000 Palestinians, fearing for their lives fled from their homes and seeked refuge in neighbouring Arab countries. It was the culmination of the systematic usurpation of Palestinian land during the period of the British mandate by Jewish settlers since the 1920’s that climaxed with the Israel declaration of ‘independence’ on 14th May 1948. Now after sixty one years, those Palestinians or their surviving children and children’s children, numbering over five million people are still languishing in refugee camps in Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and the Gaza strip in abject conditions and almost at the brink of oblivion.

 

Sixty one years on, today Palestine  still remains under occupation. Despite repeated calls by the United Nations under countless UN Resolutions for Israel to honour the rights of the Palestinians to a statehood, Israel has remained obnoxious. The longstanding occupation now has led to other more demeaning and sinister moves by the Zionist regime to carve up more land by building Jewish-only settlements on Palestinian lands and constructing the notorious wall that snakes through the West Bank from north to south, disrupting daily movements of the Palestinian people and blocking access to schools, farms and water sources. Against every sense of justice and international laws and convention, Israel has been laying siege on the densely populated Gaza strip since 2006, turning it into the biggest terrestrial prison on earth and collectively punishing the population of Gaza for putting up resistance against the occupation, an act that is sanctioned even by the United Nations and the Geneva Conventions. The siege was than followed by a massive military strike against a deprived population that lasted for 22 days, killing no less more than 1,000 people, half of these women and children, with the aim of breaking the spirit of the Palestinian people, only to find them surviving the nightmarish ordeal and coming out stronger.

 

These episodes only prove one thing i.e. no power can put down a national aspiration for freedom. The Palestinian people will continue to remain steadfast in their struggle to liberate their land and restore their dignity in the face of the most oppressive regime the world has ever known. They have put up sixty one years of honourable struggle to regain their freedom and they are showing no signs of letting up.

 

COMPLETE Malaysia would like to call upon men and women of conscience to contemplate on this longstanding suffering of fellow human beings who have been continuously denied of a homeland, freedom and dignity. It is a great shame for the whole of humanity to allow such gross violations of human rights going unchecked for over half a century. It is the paradox of the century that the Palestinians lost their freedom and the right to a homeland the same year the Universal declaration of Human rights was endorsed by the United Nations in 1948.

 

COMPLETE Malaysia therefore calls on governments of the world, civil societies and individuals of conscience to exhaust all efforts, be it diplomatic, legal and economic, to condemn Israel’s racist acts of dehumanizing the Palestinian people. It has become incumbent on every person to express solidarity with the Palestinian people and stand firmly by their side as they thrive hard to earn the freedom and regain their honour and dignity.

 

COMPLETE Malaysia will continue to raise awareness on the Palestinian issue by holding events with the objectives of dissemination of information and bringing understanding to members of the public. It is hoped that our humble effort will receive the warm support of every Malaysian regardless of creed and ethnic background, to do what is right in the name of humanity. COMPLETE Malaysia holds the view that the Palestinian issue is not one of religious or mere territorial dispute, but it is one of oppression and subjugation of one nation unto another that was left to linger for far too long. Therefore we hope every Malaysian will join us in unison when we say ‘Enough is Enough’ in the face of the Zionist Regime of Israel and demand a stop to their barbaric acts of debasement and annihilation of the Palestinian Nation.

End it dear Lord, please, end it.

That’s what I feel when I read things like:

Memo details Bush era torture method

Sun, 10 May 2009 04:25:01 GMT

More than 25 of the CIA’s terror suspects were subjected to sleep deprivation during the Bush administration.

The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has practiced sleep deprivation to more than 25 terror suspects during the Bush administration, a report says.

The Justice Department memos released last month showed that at one point, the agency was allowed to keep prisoners awake for as long as 11 days, The Los Angeles Times reported late Saturday.

However, the limit was later reduced to just over a week, the paper said.

Sleep deprivation method, which the CIA fought hardest to keep, has been described as one of the most important elements in its interrogation program used to help break dozens of suspected terrorists.

The prisoners had their feet shackled to the floor and their hands cuffed close to their chins, said the report citing Justice Department memos.

Detainees were clad only in diapers and not allowed to feed themselves. A prisoner who started to drift off to sleep would tilt over and be caught by his chains.

When detainees could no longer stand, they could be laid on the prison floor with their limbs “anchored to a far point on the floor in such a manner that the arms cannot be bent or used for balance or comfort,” according to a May 10, 2005, memo.

A Red Cross report on the CIA program in 2007 said detainees’ wrists and ankles bore scars from their shackles.

President Barack Obama, who calls waterboarding, sleep deprivation and other coercive practices torture, prohibited the methods in January.

A task force however is reviewing the use of sleep deprivation along with other harsh interrogation methods the agency might employ in the future.

Because of its effectiveness — as well as the perception that it was less objectionable than waterboarding, head-slamming or forced nudity — sleep deprivation may be seen as a tempting technique to restore, The Times concluded.

If I was kept wake for a week (even probably 40 hours) I can well imagine myself admitting to ANYTHING. Including being the first man to walk of the surface of the Sun!

The filthy US crimes (and those who drive US foreign policy) continue with Barak Obama. The first ‘black’ man to be president of the United States, yet it’s umpteenth mass murderer.

As a mark of how bad things seem to have become, suddenly this (video below) seems like the level of some of the  justice that’s deserved. But such a thing would be a mercy compared to what awaits people like Obamessiah and his long lived apostate church.

Chance to help stop people being tortured

The general public are DAMN lazy, looking for all sorts of excuses not to do anything while millions starve, and millions are diaplaced and killed by Bush, Bliar, Brown and now Obama’s bombs.

Craig Murray, ex-UK ambassador to Uzbekistan is appealing for you to write to the UK Parliamentary Joint Committee for Human Rights to request that they accept his offer to gove evidence. Evidence which DOES show the UK government knowing used ‘information’ form torturing people. And characterisitic of the UK governmnet, they tried to cover it up afterwards.

 

So come on, read his page entry HEREMarch 4, 2009, Your Help Needed – Reveal Torture to Stop It, http://www.craigmurray.org.uk/archives/2009/03/your_help_neede.html ) and stop pretending there’s nothing you can do.

 

You can get an good idea of ‘how to do it’ by reading Craig’s post,
and then reading examples of letters people posted in the comments section of his post.

 

Most people (apart from the ZUSUK spooks who periodically fish my blog) are geared towards activism anyway, but if you haven’t put your toe in the water, NOW IS A BRILLIANT TIME.

Binyam Mohamed – Guantanamo victim of US and UK torture is released.

The US and UK habitually lie about their involvement in torture and kidnapping leading to torture (extraordinary rendition as it’s called). Their lies are utterly offensive to even the most simple observer of the news.

But the US and UK have ALWAYS lied about virtually all of the nasty things they have been involved with for over 100 years. Their lies have gotten so bad and so common that now, when I hear a government press statement, I automatically ‘reverse’ what they are saying and arrive much closer to the truth on many occasions.

Even today the pro-Zionist British Foreign Secretary (arguably the UK’s third-most powerful politician) who claims to be Jewish, said:

“The government abhors torture and does not order or condone it”source

A total lie of course. Lets do the ‘reverse’ exercise to get at the truth…

“The [British] government loves torture, and can’t practice it enough!” – David Milliband, decoded.


pro-zionist-david-milliband
Pic from David Icke’s website

 

The former British Ambassador to Uzbekistan, Mr. Craig Murray, was sacked because he spoke out against torture and Britain’s involvement in it. And it’s not just on the torture issue where the Brits spout their evil lies. Here’s some more lies, exposed by my favourite journalist John Pilger, about the nightmare of the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia.

“I confirm,” Thatcher wrote to opposition leader Neil Kinnock, “that there is no British government involvement of any kind in training, equipping or co-operating with Khmer Rouge forces or those allied to them.” The lie was breathtaking.On June 25, 1991, the Major government was forced to admit to parliament that the SAS had been secretly training the “coalition”. source

I propose a new set of encyclopedia: “Encyclopedia ‘Lie Britannicia’ – one thing’s for sure the amount of material would in all likelihood fill numerous volumes.

It is a never ending source of deep frustration and anger that British people continue to support the wholly rotten establishment of British power (including that of the slimy Monarchy).

But lets get back to the torture issue. Binyam Mohamed was a victim of Guantanamo Bay torture prison, and is one of the latest people released – just a few days ago – and tells his story via his lawyer. Guantanamo Bay is of course, the prison which this very day is still torturing its captives, in defiance of anything remotely associated with humanistic values…. Thanks to Information Clearing House for reprinting this article…

 

 Worse Than My Darkest Nightmare

As I gain my freedom, I am determined that neither those who remain in detention, nor their abusers, are forgotten past.”

By Binyam Mohamed
binyam-mohamed

February 24, 2009 “The Guardian” – – I hope you will understand that after everything I have been through, I am neither physically nor mentally capable of facing the media on the moment of my arrival back to Britain. Please forgive me if I make a simple statement through my lawyer. I hope to be able to do better in days to come, when I am on the road to recovery.

I have been through an experience that I never thought to encounter in my darkest nightmares. Before this ordeal, “torture” was an abstract word to me. I could never have imagined that I would be its victim. It is still difficult for me to believe that I was abducted, hauled from one country to the next, and tortured in medieval ways – all orchestrated by the United States government.

While I want to recover, and put it all as far in my past as I can, I also know I have an obligation to the people who still remain in those torture chambers. My own despair was greatest when I thought that everyone had abandoned me. I have a duty to make sure that nobody else is forgotten.

I am grateful that, in the end, I was not simply left to my fate. I am grateful to my lawyers and other staff at Reprieve, and to Lt Col Yvonne Bradley, who fought for my freedom. I am grateful to the members of the British Foreign Office who worked for my release. And I want to thank people around Britain who wrote to me in Guantánamo Bay to keep my spirits up, as well as to the members of the media who tried to make sure that the world knew what was going on. I know I would not be home in Britain today, if it were not for everyone’s support. Indeed, I might not be alive at all.

I wish I could say that it is all over, but it is not. There are still 241 Muslim prisoners in Guantánamo. Many have long since been cleared even by the US military, yet cannot go anywhere as they face persecution. For example, Ahmed bel Bacha lived here in Britain, and desperately needs a home. Then there are thousands of other prisoners held by the US elsewhere around the world, with no charges, and without access to their families.

And I have to say, more in sadness than in anger, that many have been complicit in my own horrors over the past seven years {lwtc247’s emphasis}. For myself, the very worst moment came when I realised in Morocco that the people who were torturing me were receiving questions and materials from British intelligence. I had met with British intelligence in Pakistan. I had been open with them. Yet the very people who I had hoped would come to my rescue, I later realised, had allied themselves with my abusers.

I am not asking for vengeance; only that the truth should be made known, so that nobody in the future should have to endure what I have endured. Thank you.

This is the statement issued by Binyam Mohamed on his return to the UK.
