“4 – VICTORY”

#R4BIA — the raising of four fingers — symbol for the massacre of unarmed people in Rabaa al-Adawiya Square by Egypt’s US-backed military on August 14, 2013.

“Rabaa” means four, or the fourth in Arabic, and Raaba al-Adawiya Square has now become equally famous as Tahir Square in Cairo due to the resistance of hundreds of thousands of anti-coup protesters. Here’s a useful essay on events from Counterpunch:

Right on cue, just days after their meta-data explanation was unmasked as yet another mega-lie (yes, they really are reading your emails, chat and TXT messages) the US Government issues an extraordinary global travel warning about the threat of an imminent Al-Qaeda “terrorist” attack and closes down 21 embassies across the Muslim world — nothing specific, of course, but with all the usual trigger words — “Muslim” and “terrorist” and “Middle East” and “Al-Qaeda” . . . gotta’ keep the people frightened.

‘Day of al-Quds’

.
Today is International al-Qud Day — which, by tradition, is the last Friday of Ramadan. The Day of al-Quds, or Jerusalem Day, is not a religious occasion but rather a human rights event open to all people, both Muslims and non-Muslims alike, an opportunity to stand with the Palestinian people in their resistance of Israel’s cruel, brutal and illegal occupation of their Land.

A cornerstone of our democracy is a free press, currently under attack in New Zealand by the Government — its latest target being Jon Stevenson, an investigative journalist who revealed our military has been complicit in torturing human beings in Afghanistan.

Under the Espionage Act 1917  it is an offence . . .

To convey information with intent to interfere with the operation or success of the armed forces of the United States or to promote the success of its enemies — punishable by death or by imprisonment for not more than 30 years or both.

And . . .

To convey false reports or false statements with intent to interfere with the operation or success of the military or naval forces of the United States or to promote the success of its enemies when the United States is at war, to cause or attempt to cause insubordination, disloyalty, mutiny, refusal of duty, in the military or naval forces of the United States, or to wilfully obstruct the recruiting or enlistment service of the United States — punishable by a maximum fine of $10,000 or by imprisonment for not more than 20 years or both.

I have come to hold the view that the US Government is the enemy of all humanity and so, henceforth, I feel duty bound . . .

To convey information with intent to interfere with the operation or success of the armed forces of the United States or to promote the success of its enemies.

And . . .

To interfere with the operation or success of the military or naval forces of the United States or to promote the success of its enemies when the United States is at war, to cause or attempt to cause insubordination, disloyalty, mutiny, refusal of duty, in the military or naval forces of the United States, or to wilfully obstruct the recruiting or enlistment service of the United States.

An interesting follow up to yesterday’s post on Racism in New Zealand from this article in The Daily Blog which points a finger at the hypocrisy and double-standards of our main stream media.

At issue, a Malcolm Evan’s cartoon (shown) which the blogger uses to make his point:

While it’s acceptable to stereotype and lampoon our Pacifika People — any criticism of the Zionist’s brutal treatment of Palestinians is a sackable offence.

State Terrorism

On 15 October 2007 — following an 18-month undercover police operation — the New Zealand Government carried out a series of dawn raids on the homes of its citizens using armed police wearing masks.

Surprisingly, in a report released yesterday, the Independent Police Complaints Authority (IPCA) has condemned police action, calling it “unlawful, unjustified and unreasonable”.

The report is surprising, because . . . well, the IPCA is little more than an apologist for police, better known for rubber stamping the unlawful actions of police, and here’s a selection of related articles, commentaries, references, plus a copy of the IPCA report, which I’ve posted to my NOTES:

The Hon Senator John Cornyn,
State of Texas
United States Senate
517 Hart Senate Office Building
Washington, D.C.  20510

Dear Senator Cornyn,

Re:  The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and that Agency’s
preparation for war against citizens of the United States of America.

It is with gravest concern that I write to you today concerning the recent appropriation of weapons by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that can only be understood as a bold threat of war by that agency, and the Obama administration, against the citizens of the United States of America.  To date, DHS has been unwilling to provide to you, the elected representatives of the People, justification for recent purchases of almost 3,000 mine-resistant ambush-protected (MRAP) armored personnel carriers, 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition (with associated weapons), and other weapons systems, when, in fact, the DHS has no war mission or war making authority within the limits of the United States of America.

Love not Hate

One of my favourite images — it reminds me of Rachel Corrie
who, ten years ago today, was killed by the Israeli military.

Armed only with her bright red fluro jacket and a big heart,
Rachel was attempting to prevent Israel’s destruction of
Palestinian homes in the Occupied Territory.

The Israelis, in a move that typifies their brutal war on humanity,
simply crushed her body beneath the tracks of their bulldozers.

Israeli Apartheid Week

.
Image: Zio-nazi Flag — Apartheid State of Israel.

.
It’s now official — Israel is an apartheid state — and which, for decades, has denied Palestinians their fundamental rights of freedom, equality, and self-determination. Israel has done this through a process of ethnic cleansing, colonization, racial discrimination, and military occupation.

The world has not held Israel accountable for its crimes . . . and so they continue.

Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) is an annual international series of events held in cities and campuses across the globe. The aim of IAW is to educate people about the nature of Israel as an apartheid system and to build Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) campaigns as part of a growing global BDS movement.

Here is my earlier post on the BDS Movement and now, to mark Israeli Apartheid Week, I have posted a series of related Links on my Wall at Google-Plus, here:

‘Distinguished Warfare Medal’

The Medal of Valour Cowardice:

.
From the Only-in-America file is this week’s announcement the Pentagon has created a medal for drone pilots involved in their remote-controlled murder programme. Defense Officials say the medal will be awarded for “exceptional acts” — which gives new meaning to the phrase American “exceptionalism”.

Columnist Glenn Greenwald puts it like this . . .

“Whatever one thinks of the justifiability of drone attacks, it’s one of the least “brave” or courageous modes of warfare ever invented. It’s one thing to call it just, but to pretend it’s “brave” is Orwellian in the extreme. Indeed, the whole point of it is to allow large numbers of human beings to be killed without the slightest physical risk to those doing the killing. Killing while sheltering yourself from all risk is the definitional opposite of bravery.”

Here’s a selection of related Links, references, articles, plus the formal announcement, which I’ve posted to my Wall at Google-Plus:

History lesson 101 . . .

When the leader of a Nation takes it upon themselves to decide on who will live and who will die their end is in sight and the United States of America has now arrived at that point for it’s been decreed the President can kill whomever he/she wants, anywhere in the world, without a shred of check or oversight — and it’s not a stretch to say that American death squads now roam the earth.

On courage (3)

.
"Even under the most crushing state machinery courage rises up again and again, for fear is not the natural state of civilized man." ~ Aung San Suu KyiImage 2010 © First Hand Films

―  Aung San Suu Kyi  ―

.
‘Freedom from fear
. . .’

EXTRACT — “Within a system which denies the existence of basic human rights, fear tends to be the order of the day. Fear of imprisonment, fear of torture, fear of death, fear of losing friends, family, property or means of livelihood, fear of poverty, fear of isolation, fear of failure. A most insidious form of fear is that which masquerades as common sense or even wisdom, condemning as foolish, reckless, insignificant or futile the small, daily acts of courage which help to preserve man’s self-respect and inherent human dignity. It is not easy for a people conditioned by fear under the iron rule of the principle that might is right to free themselves from the enervating miasma of fear. Yet even under the most crushing state machinery courage rises up again and again, for fear is not the natural state of civilized man.” ~ Aung San Suu Kyi

The ‘white-colonialists’

AFRICOM ~ the USA of Africa.

They’re back in Africa — the former white-colonialists — this time all dressed up as AFRICOM and US-NATO; gun-boat-diplomacy, their counter to China’s ever growing economic, humanitarian and cultural ties with the African people.

Comparisons are instructive . . .

Whereas, the Chinese come with their cheque books and build infrastructure, Western Governments only have one trick — bombs, war, death and destruction; more suffering for all humanity.
