Israel en de PVV

Ik kreeg dit fotootje gemaild. De fractiekamer van de PVV. Waarom emigreert deze fractie niet collectief naar Israel? Ze hebben kennelijk moeite met hun loyaliteit voor Nederland. De PVV wil dat burgers die een dubbele loyaliteit bezitten een keuze maken. Welnu vrienden, of uitwijken naar de schurkenstaat Israel of kiezen voor de Nederlandse cultuur. Er is geen tussenweg, of men steunt terreur of niet. Wordt de PVV gefinancierd door de joodse lobby dan wel de 'Joodse staat'?  Onderzoeken collega's van me. Uitgaande van de PVV-ideologie lijkt het erop dat we een vijfde colonne binnen onze poorten hebben.

Former Australian Labor Prime Minister Bob Hawke. (Illustration: Janeen / thenoodleator / Flickr) The Order of Mates celebrated beside Sydney Harbour the other day. This is a venerable masonry in Australian political life that unites the Labor Party with the rich elite known as the big end of town. They shake hands, not hug, though the Silver Bodgie now hugs. In his prime, the Silver Bodgie, aka Bob Hawke or Hawkie, wore suits that shone, wide-bottomed trousers and shirts with the buttons undone. A bodgie is an Australian version of the 1950s English Teddy Boy, and Hawke's thick, gray-black coiffureadded inches to his abbreviated stature. Hawke also talked out of the corner of his mouth in an accent that was said to be "ocker," or working class, although he himself was of the middle class and Oxford educated. As president of the Australian Council of Trade Unions, his popularity rested on his…

Israel als Schurkenstaat 288

Met het oog op de wereldvrede is te hopen dat Israel in het geval van een aanval op Iran zelf dit keer afdoende afgestraft wordt. De terreur van de 'Joodse staat' kan niet langer meer beloond worden.

July 23, 2010 Breaking: Don't Let Congress Green-Light Attack on IranNearly one third of the Republican Caucus in the House of Representatives has introduced a resolution giving Israel a green light to attack Iran.  H.Res.1553 declares unwavering support for Israel to “use all means necessary,” to “eliminate nuclear threats” posed by Iran. The game plan of these Members of Congress was spelled out by John Bolton in the Wall Street Journal just two weeks ago:  “Having visible congressional support in place at the outset [of an attack] will reassure the Israeli government, which is legitimately concerned about Mr. Obama's likely negative reaction to such an attack.” This is the first step necessary to enable war with Iran. Take action now, and demand that House Republic Leader John Boehner denounce this resolution and oppose a third war in the Middle East >> Resolution Green-Lighting Israeli Strikes on Iran Introduced by House Republicans

Hi stan,

The magnitude of overfishing is often overlooked. But the fact's don't lie: oceans cover nearly 75 percent of our planet's surface and according to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization, 80 percent of marine fish stocks are in danger.

Ocean health affects the health of the entire Earth. » 

Our planet is literally covered in water, and water ecosystems are vital to life on earth. Yet because of factors including overfishing, the health of our biggest water bodies, the oceans, are in grave danger. Marine biodiversity is essential to environmental health,the balance of animal food chains.

Don't let overfishing plague our planet's health.Speak up to make environmental sustainability the top priority of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP). »

Thanks for taking action!

If most of Earth is ocean, and the ocean is unhealthy...
Earth is unhealthy.
Take action link:

Share"Static Kill" Growing as Option to End Gulf Oil Spill DramaTuesday 20 July 2010 by: Patrik Jonsson  |  The Christian Science Monitor | Report
(Photo: kk+) BP wants to try a 'static kill' in the Gulf oil spill – similar to the failed 'top kill' – to stopper the top of the well until relief wells kill it from below. A decision could come as soon as Wednesday. No news is good news for BP as its jerry-rigged containment system is holding the renegade Macondo well at bay for a sixth day in a row, meaning that US authorities could soon give the go-ahead to a “static kill” that could finally end the now three-month-long Gulf oil spill drama. The consideration of a "static kill" is a sign of growing confidence in the new cap. It suggests that officials do not think the new cap is causing new leaks that could make the surrounding seafloor unstable. Retired Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen, who is leading the federal relief effort, dismissed concerns about seepage …

BP: A Long, Bloody History of Reckless GreedWednesday 21 July 2010 by: Al Hart, t r u t h o u t | Op-Ed
(Image: Jared Rodriguez / t r u t h o u t; Adapted: Dr. Oscar Garcia / Florida State Universitypghgeorge) British Petroleum, the company responsible for the worst single-source environmental catastrophe in U.S. history, has over its 100-year history caused a number of environmental and workplace disasters. But the harm BP has caused goes further. In the early 1950s, BP and the British government convinced the U.S. to overthrow the democratic government of Iran - an action that has had disastrous consequences for Iran, the U.S., and the Middle East to this day. Before the Gulf disaster - and the stupidly arrogant statements of its CEO Tony Hayward - many Americans probably didn't even know that BP was a British company. In the 1980s BP began gobbling up U.S. oil companies - Standard Oil of Ohio (Sohio) in 1978, Standard Oil of Indiana (Amoco) in 1998, and Atlantic Richfield (Arco) …

The Fall of Obama
Alexander Cockburn The man who seized the White House by fomenting a mood of irrational expectation is now facing the bitter price exacted by reality. The reality is that there can be no "good" American president. It's an impossible hand to play. Obama is close to being finished. The nation's first black president promised change, at the precise moment no single man — even if endowed with the communicative powers of Franklin Roosevelt, the politic mastery of Lyndon Johnson and the brazen agility of Bill Clinton — could turn the tide that has been carrying America to disaster for 30 years. Americans this summer are frightened. More than 100,000 of them file for bankruptcy every month. Three million homeowners face foreclosure this year. Add them to the 2.8 million who were foreclosed in 2009, Obama's first year in office. Nearly 7 million have been without jobs in the last year for six months or longer. By the time you tot up the people who have give…

Amiri Told CIA Iran Has No Nuclear Bomb ProgramMonday 19 July 2010 by: Gareth Porter  |  Inter Press Service | Report Washington - Contrary to a news media narrative that Iranian scientist Shahram Amiri has provided intelligence on covert Iranian nuclear weapons work, CIA sources familiar with the Amiri case say he told his CIA handlers that there is no such Iranian nuclear weapons programme, according to a former CIA officer. Philip Giraldi, a former CIA counterterrorism official, told IPS that his sources are CIA officials with direct knowledge of the entire Amiri operation. The CIA contacts say that Amiri had been reporting to the CIA for some time before being brought to the U.S. during Hajj last year, Giraldi told IPS, initially using satellite-based communication. But the contacts also say Amiri was a radiation safety specialist who was "absolutely peripheral" to Iran's nuclear programme, according to Giraldi. Amiri provided "almost no information" about Iran&…

BP's Scheme to Swindle the "Small People"Monday 19 July 2010 by: Dahr Jamail, t r u t h o u t | Report
Clint Guidry, the Louisiana shrimp harvester representative on the Louisiana Shrimp Task Force created by Executive Order of Gov. Bobby Jindal, has called BP "liars" and "killers." (Photo: Erika Blumenfeld) Gulf Coast fishermen and others with lost income claims against BP are outraged by a recent announcement that the $20 billion government-administered claim fund will subtract money they earn by working on the cleanup effort from any future damage claims against BP. This move, according to lawyers in Louisiana working on behalf of Louisiana fishermen and others affected by the BP oil disaster, contradicts an earlier BP statement in which the company promised it would do no such thing. Kenneth Feinberg, who was appointed by President Obama as the independent administrator of the Gulf Claims Facility for the $20 billion BP Deepwater Horizon oil disaster …
