Jewish doctors not allowed into Gaza

Jewish doctors not allowed to help

ISRAEL is said to have barred Jewish doctors from volunteering to serve in relief efforts in Palestinian hospitals.
However, it allowed 12 Christian and Muslim doctors to go to Gaza.

Dr Hassan Mahamad, who is a member of a group of doctors from Israel currently in Gaza under the banner of Physicians of Human Rights, said the Jewish doctors wanted to come but the government did not allow them to.

"Though the large majority of the Jews in Israel support the war, there are those who are against it. The Muslims and Christians are mostly opposed to the war, too."

President Obama leads US drive to topple Robert Mugabe in Zimbabwe

China and Russia have blocked previous moves against Robert Mugabe in the UN
Tim Reid in Washington and Jonathan Clayton in Johannesburg

President Obama wants a fresh approach to toppling Robert Mugabe and is discussing with aides an unprecedented, US-led diplomatic push to get tough new UN sanctions imposed against the Zimbabwe regime, The Times has learned.

During talks Mr Obama has had with his top Africa advisers in recent weeks, the central idea they focused on was taking the issue of Zimbabwe before the UN Security Council, but for the first time to combine such a move with an intense diplomatic effort to persuade Russia and China not to block the initiative.

More Malware Targeting Users of Pirated Software for Mac

Users of pirated software have a new headache to worry about. For the second time in less than two weeks, malware targeting Mac computers has surfaced on the Web.

According to an advisory from Intego, OSX.Trojan.iServices.B is a variant of the iServices Trojan the company found last week targeting pirated copies of iWork '09. This time, the malware has its sights set on versions of Adobe Photoshop CS4 downloaded via BitTorrent trackers and other sites containing links to pirated software.

“The actual Photoshop installer is clean, but the Trojan horse is found in a crack application that serializes the program,” Intego’s advisory reads.

Government must release cabinet minutes on lead-up to Iraq war

Cabinet minutes from 2003 at which ministers discussed the events leading up to the invasion of Iraq were today ordered to be released by the information tribunal.

The decision follows a lengthy battle by campaigners who have argued that the public interest in learning what was said about the planned invasion outweighs the public interest in cabinet discussions being kept secret.

Ministers have strongly opposed the request, arguing that the Freedom of Information Act was never intended to allow for the publication of information of this kind.

Israel’s lie machine is working flat out

While the murderous assault on Gaza continues, I notice there's a briefing document on the website of the Israeli Embassy in London which has a lie in every line. The West's mainstream media repeat them, and even the most senior TV and radio interviewers don’t bother to challenge them.

(Watch video: Israel launches deadly air strikes on Gaza)

(Watch video: UN calls for Israel to open Gaza border to aid)

The document is a transcript of Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni's statement to the Israeli press dated 27 December 2008 – a day that will live in infamy. It is a perfect example of the falsehoods used to dupe not only us westerners but Israel’s own people. The statement shows how the regime's view of itself is constructed on a web of dishonesty and self-delusion.

Palestine - Center Of A Gathering Storm

In the past few years, both friends and critics have predicted that Palestine eventually would be Israel's undoing. The first thing that had to happen, however, was for the world to open its eyes to Israel's systematic murder, imprisonment, selective assassination, and repression of the Palestinians as they took the lands they wanted build the Jewish national home. That process began long before communications with the world outside the Middle East were adequate to exposing the tactics of Israeli state building.

AFP Lorne Cook

European Union nations called Sunday for divided Palestinian factions to unite so border crossings in the war-torn Gaza Strip can be opened and aid distributed.

EU foreign ministers, at talks in Brussels, also urged Arab nations to use their influence with Hamas, after its 22-day war with Israel in Gaza, and the Fatah faction of president Mahmud Abbas, the bloc's main interlocutor.

"We believe that Palestinian reconciliation behind president Mahmud Abbas is fundamental to progress," said Czech Foreign Minister Karel Schwarzenberg, whose country holds the EU's rotating presidency.

"We want a government of national unity which will supervise reconstruction and crossing points so the crossing points are completely open, so that we can bring in products necessary for reconstruction," Azzam al-Ahmed, who heads Fatah's parliamentary group, told journalists.

Caterpillar Inc., Sprint Nextel Corp. and Home Depot Inc. led companies today announcing at least 72,500 job cuts as sales withered and construction slowed amid a global economic recession that may persist through 2009.

The biggest layoffs were at Peoria, Illinois-based Caterpillar. The world’s largest maker of construction equipment said it’s cutting 20,000 jobs after fourth-quarter profit fell by almost a third.

Pfizer Inc., the New York-based drugmaker that’s acquiring competitor Wyeth for $68 billion, said it will close five factories and eliminate 19,000 jobs, or 15 percent, of the combined company’s workforce.

Credit is Contracting

Lending at many of the nation's largest banks fell in recent months, even after they received $148 billion in taxpayer capital that was intended to help the economy by making loans more readily available.

Ten of the 13 big beneficiaries of the Treasury Department's Troubled Asset Relief Program, or TARP, saw their outstanding loan balances decline by a total of about $46 billion, or 1.4%, between the third and fourth quarters of 2008, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis of banks that recently announced their quarterly results.

Those 13 banks have collected the lion's share of the roughly $200 billion the government has doled out since TARP was launched last October to stabilize financial institutions.

It’s Time We Stop Beating Around the Bush

Let’s face it, Israel is not a democracy, it is not a free country, it is not an advocate of peace. Israel is a militant state overrun by religious extremists who want the total destruction of the Palestinian people and eventually the entire planet. Israel is a rogue state, they do not answer to anyone, not Human Rights groups or the UN, they only talk to the US before going to war. They don’t want this because of Judaism but they have twisted the religion, taking many of verses from the Torah out of context to achieve their goals, just like any other religious extremist would. This is also more or less the opinion of some Jewish groups such as Rabbis for Human Rights.

FDIC Failed Bank List

This is a link to the FDIC that lists the publicly acknowledged failed banks. We're off to a good clip already in 2009 compared to 2008 which was itself a notable year for bank failures, also noted on this web page.

The unacknowledged failed banks are not listed on this FDIC web page. The unacknowledged failed banks are the ones on life support through Treasury Department give-away programs.

The unacknowledged list would likely include about 95% of U.S. banks, and surely every large bank in the U.S.

It is perhaps remarkable to note, that when bank finances fail, regardless the reason, and the banking executives are facing losing their jobs, they simply go to the government for more money with which to pay salaries and bonuses.

Strong Criticism of Israel's Violent Incursion Into Gaza all over the Internet

(Has Israel finally jumped the shark? It's clear that the attack on the Palestinians has resulted in a massive amount of civilian casualties that can't be merely explained away by claiming that Hamas is using all of these people as human shields. The civilian populace was targeted and murdered with the same casual disregard as the militants. Schools, mosques and the infrastructure in Gaza generally, has been smashed, and the IDF has rolled out experimental weaponry to try out on the Palestinians as if they were lab rats. The Palestinians are certainly captive, but although the U.S. mainstream media is absolutely uncritical of Israel's atrocities, the web is alive with criticism. Here are 6 very useful articles that I found with a quick look on the web over the last couple of days.

"Asymmetric warfare" and "terrorism"

A thought crossed my mind. Why is it "asymmetric warfare" when the poorly-funded and less-equipped side attacks the larger enemy, but not the other way around? Is it "asymmetric warfare" to fire missiles from drones onto targets in Pakistan or for Israel to drop WP on civilians EVEN IF they are deemed "combattants."

All war is terrorism, symmetrical or not.

These word games are used as red-herring to lead people from the question of whether the war is "just."
