Further evidence, if it were needed that the Arab/Israeli ‘peace process’ is a farce.
Long time observers and experts of the Arab/Israeli conflict have continually dismissed (particularly) Israeli efforts to resolve it. The corrupt Palestinian Authority, through its weakness, has assisted the stream of belligerent Israeli governments in the pretence of a ‘peace process’. Over thirty or forty years, the Israelis have hoodwinked any interested parties into believing that they continually strive for a peace agreement. During all this time, they have been stealing Arab land, as well as intensifying the persecution of the Palestinians.
The predominant enabler to these crimes has been and still is, America. Purporting to be an honest peace broker, they have been nothing of the sort, continually undermining any remote chance of success. So the announcement from Trump, that his son-in-law, Jared Kushner would be given the job of mediating, was staggering.
First of all, Kushner is a Zionist who has contributed to the building of illegal settlements. He’s also an Orthodox Jew. It has now become apparent that Kushner’s family have been good friends of the Netanyahu’s for many years. How can the squeaky voiced Kushner be an impartial problem solver? He does make previous US attempts at arbitration look balanced.
Lets imagine the situation was reversed and the Arabs were in a powerful position, assisted by their generous friend, America. Would the Israelis allow a staunch anti Zionist be the main mediator? Lets not forget that any anti-Semitic feeling on the Arab side is more than equalled in anti Arab feeling from the Israelis. And yes, I know that many Arabs are Semites too, so the phrase is rather deceiving.
Kushner is just about the most biased person that Trump could have found to resolve the Arab/Israeli conflict but maybe that’s why he chose him.
Indiscriminate use of White Phosphorus suggests the US are deliberately trying to kill civilians in Raqqa.
The irony and hypocrisy of the US using White Phosphorus on the one hand, yet accusing Syria of using chemical weapons on the other is also bemusing. Only Israel and the US have been found to use the widely condemned chemical weapon in recent years, both claiming that using it under certain conditions it is not a CW (whilst not using them under those conditions anyhow). This is not true. Both have used it to slaughter innocent civilians in Gaza, Iraq and now in Syria.
When Saddam used WP in 2005 the US condemned him for using chemical weapons.
Indiscriminate use of WP in Raqqa can only result in many thousands being killed by these aerial assaults supposedly targeting ISIS. The hypocrisy knows no bounds. Whilst accusing the Syrian government forces of using CW’s with no evidence to support it, the US doesn’t deny using WP. It seems that the US has the last word on who can and who cannot use CW’s.
On the same day that six people are charged over Hillsborough, it’s announced that the number of Grenfell victims will not be known for at least six months.
This is the template for Government cover-ups. This is why ‘Inquiries’ are set up. Its the ‘time is a great healer’ theory. We don’t fall for it every time, it’s just human nature. Only the closest to the tragedy cannot or are unable to forget until they can get some sort of closure to the events. The rest of us will quickly forget because that’s how we are.
The Inquiries Act (2005).
This law was written to give the relevant British Minister the authorisation to control the direction of any inquiry. The Minister will decide what should be included and therefore (potentially) control the direction of any inquiry to suit their own agenda. (This is my own perception of why the law was changed and I’m not qualified or intelligent enough to trawl through legal documents to confirm my view).
The Hillsborough charges.
Unless some officers have been extremely stupid or there is overwhelming evidence against them, these trials are merely for show, to appease relatives of the victims. The Thatcher Government supported the Police and none of those politicians will ever be brought to justice. These Police officers may have been incompetent and corrupt but they were assisted in the cover-up.
The BBC news web page announced that the true number of Grenfell victims would not be known this year.
It seems that the cladding used on Grenfell is only now being rigorously tested for fire resistance. Where are the safety authorities that must have originally approved the cladding?
Corbyn and terrorism.
Before the election, the Conservatives were accusing Corbyn of being a terrorist sympathiser. He is and never has been anything of the sort. He’s been prepared to talk to suspect organisations as a means to a peaceful outcome. In one swift move, the Conservatives have created the conditions that might destroy any faith in democracy that the Nationalists in Northern Ireland had. Unless strict preconditions were agreed to about the distribution of their ‘bribe’ from the Conservatives, there could be far reaching repercussions. Theresa May won’t mind, as long as she is still the Prime Minister.
Johnson presided over the closure of 10 fire stations and the removal of 27 fire engines, despite previously promising not to remove them.
Did Johnson dangerously reduce the Fire Services ability to respond in the manner it was accustomed to? The number of Firemen attending the Grenfell fire must have been affected by the brutal cuts that Johnson initiated. How did he reduce the number of firemen? Early retirement for long serving, experienced and knowledgeable fire fighters? Could inexperience have been a factor in the eventual demise of Grenfell? Three Fire Stations close to Grenfell had been closed by Johnson, why has he not been summoned to explain himself and justify his decision?
In no way am I questioning the bravery and ability of the London firemen, I’m just concerned that the service has had the guts ripped out of it by Johnson. If he had, it would in no way reflect on the personnel currently serving.
Why have the Tories been given an easy ride by the media? Why has Johnson not been questioned over his role. It’s time the Labour Party asked the questions, these people need answers not a minutes silence that coincides with the government’s silence.
Incredible restraint being shown by Assad in the face of mounting provocation.
The Israeli Air Force have now attacked the Syrian Arab Army and its allies for three days running. The strikes have been in support of Al Qaida/Al Nusra/ISIS or whatever name they call themselves. The illegal assaults have been completely ignored by the UN
Clearly, the Israelis don’t fear the terrorists as they claim to do when they accuse them of attacking them in occupied Palestine. The catalogue of assistance given to the extremists is even discussed in mainstream media. Money, weapons and medical assistance as well as military air support is given to the terrorist vermin who are confirmed Israeli proxies, in their attempts to weaken the Assad government.
If it weren’t for Syria and its allies struggling to fight the criminal invaders, the cowardly Israelis wouldn’t dare attack Syrian assets. The IDF couldn’t fight their way out of a wet paper bag and it will be proven once Syria have finished with the US, UK and Saudi financed terrorists. I’m sure Nasrallah and his military advisors have already cooked up some nice surprises for the next time the Israelis feel brave enough to try to take on Hezbollah.
As it stands currently, only the IAF think they are safe to attack Syria without fear of reprisals. It’s the brain dead extremists that are doing all the dying but they aren’t bright enough to comprehend it.
Israel provides air cover for terrorist elements in Quneitra.
The Israeli Air Force today supplied air cover for Al Nusra terrorists, destroying Syrian military vehicles and killing two Syrian soldiers. The lying Israelis claimed the attack was because of errant weapons fire into ‘Israel controlled areas’. If they weren’t illegally occupying the Golan Heights, there wouldn’t be a problem in the first place but can they explain why these problems occur only when the terrorists are attacking Syrian forces?
Despite admissions of supporting terrorist elements for years, the Israelis get an easy ride from our media. They are never exposed for their crimes no matter how heinous. Palestine is ignored. Crimes against it’s neighbours are ignored. Israeli interference in the British political system, amongst other countries is ignored. For all the different ways which the mainstream media conveniently ignore Israel, there has to be only one conclusion. Israel controls the mainstream media.
Conspiracy theory? Try to find a journalist critical of Israel. Learn how many Palestinian homes have been bulldozed. Try to find out how many young Arabs have been killed by the IDF, claiming they attacked soldiers with a knife. Try to find the name of the 15 year old Palestinian girl that died because she was left for an hour and a half with her fatal injuries, bleeding to death on the floor. Try to find out the conditions in which Palestinian prisoners are kept in, many of them without ever being formally charged or tried in court. Learn what if feels like to be stood in blistering heat waiting to be processed to go through a check point that serves no security purpose.
Try to find this information out from our mainstream media and you will be wasting your time. No conspiracy theory here.
Since Trump and Netanyahu met a few weeks ago, the rabid dog Israel, has appeared much more low key. I believe Trump advised his counterpart to let the latter to continue the provocation that is intended to give the US and its allies the excuse to properly attack Syria. Criticism of Putin is foolish. He’s played the situation superbly thus far by not responding to the crimes committed by all the anti Assad coalition.
I live in Lincolnshire, UK and just recently there has been a huge increase in fighter jet activity. Something could be in the pipeline – strategic planning and exercises for air combat? Nothing would surprise me. With a mortally wounded Prime Minister and an unpopular President, it might be the only way they can see to change their fortunes.
