De Israelische Terreur 1074

Dear stan,

It was the last place in the world I expected to see Barbie's smiling face emblazoned on the front of a children's notebook.

It was a hot day in June, and as we traveled along a bumpy, dusty road in the south of Gaza, I thought how eerily quiet it was compared to the last time I had been here, when we were taunted by the whizzing sounds of small military drones following our every move.

Suddenly, our van arrived at a farmhouse where we were welcomed by a father and beekeeper wearing a flowing white robe. His name was Mohammed Shurrab. On his desk lay a stack of children's notebooks, each with an image of a Barbie doll on the cover.

Just months before, during Israel's attack on Gaza, Mohammed and his two sons waited for a lull in the fighting so they could flee to join the rest of their family. They weren't far from the farmhouse when they came under a hail of bullets from Israeli soldiers. All of them were shot.

Mohammed's 28-year-old son Kassab, an engin…

Top Army Commander Rescinds Controversial Order Criminalizing PregnancyFriday 25 December 2009by: Jason Leopold, t r u t h o u t | Report
(Image: Troy Page / t r u t h o u t; Adapted: mahalie, reitveld) A controversial policy implemented last month by the Army general commanding soldiers in Northern Iraq that criminalized pregnancy was rescinded following an outcry from women’s groups and fierce criticism by four Democratic lawmakers.According to a report published on ABC News’ website Friday, "Gen. Raymond Odierno [the top US commander in Iraq] has drafted a broad new policy for the US forces in Iraq that will take effect Jan. 1, but which does not include a provision issued last month by Maj. Gen. Anthony Cucolo that disciplined both soldiers who became pregnant and their military sex partners."A spokesman for US Forces-Iraq told CNN that permission must now be obtained from Odierno before any policy restricting troop activity is instituted.As Truthout reported earlier thi…

Vredesbesprekingen bij Bethlehem

Geschreven door Yochanan Visser donderdag 24 december 2009
Terwijl in Nederland sommige media blijven volharden in een campagne om van het Midden-Oosten conflict een klassieke Western te maken. En een uitgerangeerde ex-VPRO journalist op zijn blog een journalistieke vorm van terrorisme tegen Israëli’s en Joden heeft geïntroduceerd, vinden in Israël menselijke en hoopgevende dingen plaats.Lees verder:
Mooi zo. Hieruit maak ik op dat uw mijn stukjes over de feiten met betrekking tot Israel en Palestina wel degelijk…

In afwachting van de kalkoen nog even deze informatie:
Staatsschuld VS kan verder stijgen Update: donderdag 24 dec 2009, 15:58
De Amerikaanse Senaat heeft ingestemd met een verhoging van het plafond voor de Amerikaanse staatsschuld met een bedrag van 290 miljard dollar. Daarmee komt de maximaal toegestane schuld op 12,4 biljoen dollar (12.400 miljard). Het Huis van Afgevaardigden ging vorige week al akkoord met de verhoging. De regering kan nu weer nieuwe obligaties uitschrijven om geld binnen te halen. Daarmee zijn alle overheidsuitgaven tot medio februari veiliggesteld. De VS heeft de grootste staatsschuld ter wereld. Door overheidssteun aan het bedrijfsleven loopt de schuld dit jaar met 1,4 biljoen dollar op.

What future for 'Greater Israel'?

Six decades after its founding, Israel has grown into one of the world's top 20 industrial states, with GNP (General National Product) superior to all its neighbours combined.

IN DEPTHSettlements in pictures: Facts & figuresWatch Walled HorizonsMore EmpireWith an estimated 200 nuclear warheads, and one of the most advanced air forces in the world, Israel promotes itself as the Middle East's most powerful military and one of the world's five leading arms exporters.

Priding itself on being a Western-type democracy; Israel has always sought close relations with empires and superpowers, underlining its estrangement within its own region.

Thanks to decades of preferential treatment by Western superpowers, Israel has had its cake and eaten it too. It has occupied, annexed a…
