Venezuela expels Israeli envoy over Gaza ‘Holocaust’

Hugo ChavezIt was heartening to read that the Venezuelan government on Tuesday ordered the expulsion of Israel’s ambassador to Caracas in protest to the Israeli military’s offensive in the Gaza Strip. President Hugo Chavez called the events in Gaza a Palestinian “holocaust” and said the presidents of Israel and the United States should be tried for war crimes in international court. “The Holocaust, that is what is happening right now in Gaza,” Chavez said in televised comments. “The president of Israel at this moment should be taken to the International Criminal Court together with the President of the United States.”

I have always loved Hugo Chavez and his bold statement against the American hegemony specially his speech at the UN where he called George Bush a devil.

It is good to see Venezuela highlight this crisis but ironically various neighboring Muslim countries are still not ready to play hard ball, in outright condemnation of Israel for the fear of upsetting the American war lords.


Avaaz.org – STOP the bloodshed in Gaza

The bloodshed in Gaza is escalating while diplomats talk — the death toll now stands at over 600 people and rising, almost half of them civilians and over 100 children dead. As Israeli tanks, airplanes and artillery bombard thickly populated urban areas, hitting UN schools yesterday, thousands more have been injured and 1.5 million terrified civilians have no escape from this prison-like enclave — the borders have been sealed. Hamas continues to fight and fire rockets deep into Israel: 11 Israelis have died, including from friendly fire.

Israel & Palestine: Force Is Never the Solution

Guest Blog by temporal from Baithak Blog

Taking advantage of the lame duck Presidency of Bush, the deliberate distancing of President Elect there-is-only-one-president Obama, the holidays in the West and the attending low emphasis of politicians, Israeli Air Force launched a devastating attack on Gaza.

Israel is the non NPT signatory Occupier in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, Golan and East Jerusalem, aided (up to 5 billion a year) and abetted by the West.

President of the Palestinian Authority Mahmood Abbas is perceived as an Palestinian Uncle Tom and he was soundly beaten in the elections by Hamas.

An Earthquake On Top of Your Head – The Bombing of Gaza

I would like to share this heart touching narration published in Counter Punch by a practising psychologist living in the Gaza City, he has shared his family’s panic stricken reaction as the Israeli fighter jet took target practice around his neighbourbhood killing over 250 people and leaving a trail of over 700 dead

An Earthquake on top of you Head – The Bombing of Gaza by Dr. Eyad Al Serraj

The bombing went on for about 10 minutes. It was like an earthquake on top of your head. The windows were shaking and squeaking. My 10-year-old was terrified, he was jumping from one place to another trying to hide. I held him tight to my chest and tried to give him some security and reassure him. My 12-year-old was panicking and began laughing hysterically, it’s not normal. I held her hand and calmed her and told her she would be safe. My wife was panicking. She was running around the apartment looking for somewhere to hide.

Massive Israeli airstrike in Gaza kills 225+

Its shocking to read of the new brutal offensive launched yet again by Israel today where they ransacked the Gaza Strip, killing at least 225 people. The western media is for the upteenth time skewing the attack in favor of Israel, listening to the Israeli Foriegn Minister when he quite blatantly justifies the attack as their right to ‘take out their enemies‘ my simple reaction — Cold blodded murderers

Its surprising how Israel enjoys a blanket protection enabling them to get away with blatant human rights violations, even to the extent of preventing UN reporters from accessing Gaza and West Bank, when on 14th December Richard Falk was denied entry into Israel from Tel Aviv airport simple beacause he was going to visit the West Bank and Gaza to report on Israel’s compliance with human rights standards and international humanitarian law. I wonder what they are trying to hide from the International scene…


Hot pursuit or breach of territorial integrity in Pakistan

Amjad Malik writes specially on the issue of US incursions in Pakistan

As Pakistan is paying the price for flirting with United States yet again and did not learn anything from Russian invasion results and being in the rock and hard place, the country is viewed by many that its giving too much to the Americans but according to the USA not enough, hence unilateral incursions. These attacks whether through missiles or land operations are fatal for state sovereignty principle as it not only establishes might is right principle but exposes a trust deficit amongst operators of war on terror at international front. King Abdullah rightly pointed out some intelligence failures and lack of cooperation at that front and insisted the need of joint Intel set up internationally to combat this menace which is affecting us all. When we look at UN charter, the forum which was set up to avoid war and to reaffirm faith in human rights and to establish conditions under which justice and respect for the obligation of treaties can be maintained, and the tolerance was the key and there was agreed prohibition of armed forces save in the common interest. Article 2(4) of the UN charter says that ‘All members shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state, or in any other manner inconsistent with the purpose of the United Nations.”

Google Doodle for Muslims or Pakistanis?

Google has over the past years becoming one of the most successful IT companies practically out-gunning most of its competitors in every possible field where it has any presence. The success of Google has predominately been due to its commitment to provide service far before the thought of minting money which according to their model invariably follows. This combined with its deliberate effort to harness a level of trust with its users plays an important role in ensuring that Google.com becomes a household name an invariably the most favored search engine by a long margin. Millions of people use Googles endless list of innovative services ranging from GMail, Blogspot, YouTube, Google Reader etc.

CBS ’60 Minutes’ edited Ahmadinejad’s comment on Israel/Palestine: ‘Solution Is Democracy’

About two years ago CBS ’60 Minutes’ did an interview with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.  Recently at the request of the Iranian President, the FULL UNEDITED version was shown on C-SPAN. The aired edited 60 Minutes was followed by the full 90-minute interview, to give viewers a window on what is left on the cutting room floor

A very diligent blogger has reported on what “60 Minutes” cut out of the interview when it initially aired. When Mike Wallace confronted Ahmadinejad with the “wipe Israel off the map” threats, Ahmadinejad said that the solution is democracy” in Israel and Palestine, but it seems the CBS team decided to cut this all important section and continued to paint this leader in a negative view.

We can see what they cut out, a call for democracy. This is another example of Mainstream Media’s continuing suppression of basic facts concerning Israel and the Palestinians and other dramatic details related to the Middle East. It is a scandal for news editors to suppress the fact that democracy is being denied to people and that U.S. policy makers are behind the injustices. It is a scandal that the mainstream media suppresses the fact that the President of Iran is calling for democracy.
