Despite Western hypocritical attacks on Political Islam, the true enemies of Zionism and the Israeli state have always been secular and radical Palestinian and Arab nationalism. The Muslim Brotherhood have often provided a cover for imperialism, as in Egypt. In Gaza, where the PFLP is strong, Israel prefers Hamas to a secular regime (unless of the quisling Abbas type).
Ahmad Sa’adat was kidnapped from Jericho Prison, where he was held under guard by British and foreign forces and effectively handed over to Israel. He was imprisoned for being leader of a group which assassinated the leader of the Moledet-Transfer Party, General Rehavam Zvi. Targeted assassinations are regular Israeli activities but the oppressed are not supposed to indulge in similar actions. Ahmad Sa’dat’s statement below on how negotiations only serve as a camouflage for occupation and conquest are a message for all Palestinian groups and those in the West who choose, despite the evidence, to foster such illusions. read full story / add a comment

If you have seen my older version and still have it on your computer, right-click on, especially, the HomePage at least, and in the drop-down menu left-click on the "Reload" link or the "Refresh"
link to load the updated site. This is the price a whistleblower has to pay for his trouble in Northern Ireland - 35 years and counting....

We, the International League of Peoples’ Struggle (ILPS), condermn in the strongest terms the duplicitous scheme of the US and NATO in instigating, funding and arming the so-called Syrian National Council and Free Syrian Army to seek the violent overthrow of the Assad government in Syria and at the same time pushing a “peace plan” and then a “transitional government” under the auspices of the UN in order to politically outmanuever the Assad government and the anti-imperialist and democratic forces. read full story / add a comment

Two expert witnesses, Dr. Stephen Hwang of the Department of Medicine at the University of Toronto, and Brooks Hogya, a survivalist and wilderness guide, testified that the prohibition of rudimentary forms of shelter, such as tents, has an adverse effect on the health and well-being of homeless people. Prohibition of quality sleep was, thus, a denial of Section 7 rights since sleep is an essential life-sustaining act. The judge presiding over the case agreed with the opinions of the expert witnesses.

“Four Corners”, an Australian Broadcasting Corporation current affairs program, this week broadcast what amounted to an exposé of the frame-up of WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange on allegations of sexual misconduct in Sweden. Assange remains inside the Ecuadorian embassy in London, seeking political asylum from the threat of being removed to Sweden, which would in turn facilitate extradition to the US. read full story / add a comment
New idea gives choice:Support by UN,US,maybe NZ for ethical human rights approach to replace neoliberalism.
A new idea, an ethical approach to human rights, development and globalization to replace neoliberalism, gives people a choice.
The ethical human rights approach is being supported on the social networking sites by the US government, the UN while the NZ government maybe sympathetic. Also promotes inclusion of children's rights in the New Zealand Bill of Rights Act 1990. read full story / add a comment

Many believe that London will be rocked by a false flag operation at the 2012 Olympics. It has been proven by MI-5 Whistle-blowers that we live in the age of false flag terror from British Occupied Ireland to the Euphrates. We need be ready even if the 2012 Olympic Games could come and go without an incident. It is better to be prepared for false flags and be ready just in case something something does happen. read full story / add a comment

Irish Republicans have been on dirty protest in Maghaberry for two years -- the kind of situation that led to ten dying on hunger strikes in 1981. Also, opponents of the normalisation of the British occupation of Ireland are being framed and convicted, locked up without charge or being tried for actions back in the 1980s. Meanwhile, the organised Irish Left is averting its head. In what other country would this happen? read full story / add a comment

In Moscow a court has begun hearing the case of three feminist punk rockers who sang a protest song in Moscow's main Orthodox church.The trio are charged with hooliganism and could get seven years in prison.
The hearing, expected to set a trial start date, is being held behind closed doors while supporters and opponents of Pussy Riot demonstrate outside.The women were arrested in February after performing in Christ the Saviour Cathedral.
They have now spent 5 months in prison, and have been refused bail. Other band members who took part in the incident were not arrested. read full story / add a comment

The Magna Carta, the charter of English liberties was imposed on King John in 1215 but it will be dead on its anniversary. It has been shredded in Ireland by the Secret Services and their front man the unelected English autocrat Paterson,who re-introduced the wartime instrument of internment without trial in total disdain of a supposed peace process. read full story / add a comment

The Government, having reviewed the whole matter with great care and with reference to any future operations, have decided that the techniques...The statement that I have made covers all future circumstances."As foreshadowed in the Prime Minister's statement, directives expressly prohibiting the use of the techniques, whether singly or in combination, were then issued to the security forces by the Government." These are still in force and the use of such methods by UK security forces would not be condoned by the Government. The leading nationalist party of that time, the SDLP took a principled stand and resigned from Stormont, "the sectarian parliament for a sectarian people," as boasted by Unionist leaders. read full story / add a comment
