Nog steeds geen reactie van mijn oude vriend Geert Mak. Daarom Enkele Twitter Reacties

  1. 'In order to help redress the terrible agony of the Palestinians, we must first effect a change in our own system of elite exploitation of the people at home. That change is coming.'

    this one's got it all: "death toll rises" -- no one was killed and no one specific party did the killing, the death toll just mysteriously "rises" "clashes" -- launders all power asymmetry "2,400 people have been injured" -- all 2,400 are Palestinian but lets go with "people"

  3. Voor het geval je het gemist hebt
    1. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights: '"But it shows I’m being neutral if both sides complain,” he said, insisting he accepts no funding and runs the observatory on a voluntary basis.' Peter Hitchens' revelation here:

      Syrian Observatory has been treated as a gold standard for information on Syria. Quoted by BBC all the time. Always described as independent. Now we learn from Peter Hitchens it's funded by FCO.

    Having been personally smeared by Idrees Ahmad in The Times, openDemocracy, and elsewhere online, I am content now to see karma doing its thing, with the able assistance of Max Blumenthal, in this interesting thread about Dr Ahmad's unedifying pattern of conduct with others too.

    You can imprison 1000s of journalists, campaigners and opposition - but Turkey’s President Erdogan still gets a 3 day state visit to Uk starting yesterday.

    41 people now killed in and almost 2000 injured, over 900 with live ammunition. A shameless violation of international law, in some instances constituting war crimes. The Israeli authorities show no signs they intend to rein in excessive force. needed.

    The nonviolent mass movement in , the absence of which Western media commentators have been hectoring and lecturing about for decades, has arrived. is, predictably, shooting it down. With hunting rifles.

  10. That entry appears three posts *after* this one from Amnesty: 'We are witnessing an abhorrent violation of Int law and human rights. 38 confirmed dead, including children/minors, with close to 2000 people injured in .' Are there any limits to the BBC's moral depravity?

  11. In-between reporting the ongoing massacre of 52 Palestinians and the wounding of 2,410 more (1,204 by live fire), the BBC live feed is featuring this kind of thing

Geert Mak Pleit Nu Voor Vriendschap met Rusland

Ik kwam zojuist mijn oude vriend, de bestseller-auteur en mainstream-opiniemaker Geert Mak in de regen op straat tegen. Na elkaar te hebben begroet, vertelde Geert mij dat hij van oordeel is dat Europa zo snel mogelijk met Rusland om de tafel moet gaan zitten, om de opgelopen spanningen te deëscaleren. De VS heeft heel andere belangen dan 'wij,' aldus Mak, die benadrukte dat de macht van 'onze' Atlantische bondgenoot ingrijpend aan het afnemen is. Kortom, ik hoorde wat ikzelf al enige jaren op mijn weblog schrijf. Opvallend hoe een Nederlandse opiniemaker binnen zo'n betrekkelijk korte tijd zo wezenlijk van oordeel kan veranderen.  Immers, Mak’s gevaarlijke anti-Rusland hetze was een treffend voorbeeld van zijn opportunisme. Mei 2014 beweerde op de Hilversumse televisie de zogeheten ‘chroniqueur van Amsterdam, Nederland, Europa en de VS,’ dat er sprake was van een 'Russische gevaar,’ aangezien ‘meneer Poetin’ aan ‘landjepik’ deed en dat de Russische president d…

Native American Rape Survivors

A sign marks the entrance to White Earth Indian Reservation in Mahnomen County, Minn. (J. Stephen Conn / CC 2.0) WHITE EARTH RESERVATION, Minn.—Candice (not her real name) awoke with a start. Someone was pulling down her sweatpants. It was a male friend. “Stop!” she shouted. He kept groping her. She kicked him and he fell off the bed. She dashed out of the bedroom, tripping and tumbling down the stairs. Gripped with fear, she heard his footsteps behind her in the dark and forced herself to stand upright as she staggered out to the porch. Candice was still intoxicated. She got into her car and drove into a ditch. A white police officer pulled up. She struggled to hold back tears as she told him about the attempted rape. All the officer saw was a drunk and disorderly Native American woman. He dismissed Candice’s report of sexual assault as a lie she had made up to avoid getting a DUI. He did not take her to the hospital for a forensic exam. The sexual assault was not recorded in his pol…
