Talk of a third Intifada: Where to from here, Palestine? | Middle East Eye

The tit for tat violence in the area around East Jerusalem has prompted some to call for a 3rd intifada….a popular uprising of Palestinians against the occupation, destruction and theft that Israel is perpetrating against the population of the territories.

Personally, I think it is a good idea…..but more on the lines of the 1st Intifada and not the mindless violence of the 2nd…………

Shock and horror at killings, but not when victims are Palestinians

I admit it….I usually watch the news on BBC….why?  They for the most part are much better than the news in the US.  I have found their Achilles Heel…..Israel.

There needs to be more outrage at the treatment of Palestinians by the media……

In the latest violence in East Jerusalem they spent 2 or 3 days on the attack and the de4aths that it produced ….Jewish deaths.  They are not so forth coming when Palestinians are shot for throwing rocks……

This article makes good points and emphasizing the point that I question.

Thousands protest in Spain for Western Sahara independence – Yahoo News

Spain is illustrating that they are concerned about the different conflicts from around the world…..their Parliament is schedule for a vote to recognize Palestine as a state…..and then this demonstration.

I wish more countries would show such concern for the Sahawaris….the people of Western Sahara…

The Us is mealy mouth about support….mainly because Morocco is a strong ally in North Africa and we do not want to alienate the monarchy….

Spain is showing extremely good taste, IMO………..

An Open Letter to King Mohammed VI

This is a letter written by a Moroccan journalist in support of Western Sahara……a speech made recently by the king of Morocco could have far reaching consequences……

A very good letter written by a concerned citizen of Morocco……..calmer heads need to prevail…..a resumption of violence will only heard the innocents caught in the middle of this conflict.

May I suggest that Morocco relinquish all claims to a region that does not belong to them……Western Sahara deserves their independence……

What Of World War 3?

 

This subject was brought to my attention on MasterAdrian’s weblog…..

Many people keep holding their breath that one of these bullah*t inventions will not lead to another world war……..

Because I study international relations, especially war, its causes and results,  I saw this piece and had to read to see what it was all about…….first, let me say I am dubious of this news….why?  It comes from WND which is noted for its extension of reality to the point of LIES!  It is a leading purveyor of conspiracy theories made up for consumption of nut jobs…….

The article begins………

With US politicians and the American media engaged in an increasingly acrimonious debate over the strategy guiding the latest US war in the Middle East, the United States Army has unveiled a new document entitled the Army Operating Concept (AOC), which provides a “vision of future armed conflict” that has the most ominous implications. It is the latest in a series of documents in which the Pentagon has elaborated the underlying strategy of preventive war that was unveiled in 1992—that is, the use of war as a means of destroying potential geopolitical and economic rivals before they acquire sufficient power to block American domination of the globe.

The document was formally released at this week’s Association of the United States Army (AUSA) conference, an annual event bringing together senior officers and Defense Department officials for a series of speeches and panel discussions, along with a giant trade show mounted by arms manufacturers to show off their latest weapons systems and pursue lucrative Pentagon contracts.

 

I checked out the article and you can read the entire piece from link below:

I went to the association of the United states Army to see their full report…..I found nothing that would be issued under the title of a “plan”……furthermore the original article was published by the World Socialist Web Site…..so these people will use the socialists to further there conspiracy crap…..interesting.

Any way the link below is to the Association of The United sates Army…you can look around…I could not confirm the study but I may have missed something……

There is another opinion about the possibility of World War 3……if you are truly worried about the possibility please read the link provided and maybe you can soothe your mind……

Please pass on your thoughts…I am always open to them……until then……

Gaza: Only Half As Much

Inkwell Institute

Middle East Desk

 

Gaza….do you remember Gaza?  In case you may have been otherwise distracted (that would be most of the Right wing), there was a war fought over Gaza about a month ago…..it has since been pretty quiet on the Eastern Front.

Gaza was totally destroyed, especially the infrastructure and now the world, but not Israel because they are above having to act in a civil manner, is pledging funds to help rebuild Gaza.  The total most recently stated was $5.4 billion to help rebuild lives and the region.

Then I read a disturbing piece from a Middle East newspaper……..

Donors at an international conference Sunday promised $2.7 billion to rebuild the war-ravaged Gaza Strip, but all of the key participants said their efforts would be futile without a permanent peace between Israel and the Palestinians.

Norwegian Foreign Minister Borge Brende, who co-chaired the one-day meeting with Egypt, said pledges of $5.4 billion have been made, but that only half of that money would be “dedicated” to the reconstruction of the coastal strip.

Brende did not say what the other half of the funds would be spent on. Other delegates have spoken of budgetary support, boosting economic activity, emergency relief and other projects.

$5.4 billion and only $2.7 will be used for reconstruction……okay who is doing the skimming here?  2.7 billion would go a long way to repair what Israel destroyed and yet there is NO word as to where or who will be using this cash…..why?

Will Israel get their blood stained hands on any of this cash?

What kind of douche bag would use this devastation for personal gain?  that one is easy to answer…a CAPITALIST!

But Israel after all is said will be a big beneficiary of the last war on Gaza…….

Yet Israel is the true beneficiary of this aid money. The self-declared international community has once again footed the reconstruction bill as it arms Israel with the weaponry and ensures it the impunity that only rewards its brutal onslaught on Gaza and essentially guarantees its repetition.

“This is the third time in less than six years that together with the people of Gaza, we have been forced to confront a reconstruction effort,” an exasperated US Secretary of State John Kerry stated at the conference, as though this summer’s bloodshed was something other than inevitable given all those arms Washington lavished on Israel, along with the monetary aid and diplomatic cover since the large-scale assaults in November 2012 and winter 2008-09.

Israel is doing all it can to prevent people of Gaza from rebuilding their lives…….

The Israeli authorities have delayed indefinitely the entry of 60 truckloads of building materials into the Gaza Strip, a Palestinian official said.

“We were notified by the Palestinian National Company that Israel has indefinitely delayed the entry of the 60 trucks into the Gaza Strip,” Mounir al-Ghalban of Gaza’s border authority told our media sources.

The move came despite Israeli “promises” to allow the entry of the construction supplies into the blockaded enclave on Tuesday through Kerem Shalom crossing, he added.

Personally I am sick of the US covering Israel’s ass…….time for them to pay for the destruction that they created….we help re-build Germany and Japan after WW2….why should Israel get a free ride?
