obama-rama

well it’s been 2 weeks since my last forage into the bloggersphere and quite a bit has happened. israel managed to just about stop killing gazans but not before fracturing an international law or two, obama was inaugurated (are the 2 linked?), i watched the last episode of binbo danshi, and kaka’ turned down a stupid-money move to city. oh yeah, and my flat mate went to a labour party dinner and met david milliband, who said a lot of (bad) things about the illegal state of israel. nice work dave!

oh and a development over the last 48 hours has been the BBC’s refusal to air a disastors emergency committee (DEC) broadcast appeal for gaza. this is starting to take the piss really. so pleasing some seriously messed up lobby with no morals is more important than doing your bit to help your fellow human beings who have been exposed to war crimes by an illegal state? wheres the morality in that? i love the bbc because its a british institution so im proud of it but this will really test people’s affections for it. and the fact that the chief operating officer (caroline thomson) has the audacity to say that the massive number of complaints doesnt really matter is BS. simply because its us, joe the plumber and friends (the public), who pay for the bloody bbc! do we really have no feelings towards a people who have been subjected to so much over the past 60 years? the excuses that the bbc bosses have come out with make them sound like they went to the same school of bull that mark regev went to. at least this fiasco has been reported enough on british news channels to publicise the campaign anyway.

on to more positive news; that of kaka’ turning down a move to man city that would have made a lot of people lose any remaining respect for our most beautiful game, had it gone through. im happy that there is at least one player who doesnt just play for the highest bidder but for the team he loves. kaka’ has confirmed his status as not only one of the top 3 players in the world, but also a cool person.

ermmmmm…. so in summary, i think its time for milliband and obama to lead us and the americans into israel and liberate the land and give it back to the palestinians. 😉 ahem…..

The truth about Israel’s crimes in Gaza: Word!

January 10, 2009 2 comments

I have just read a great article by the awesome investigative journalist, John Pilger (who just happens to be british) about the israeli terrorism in gaza. in the comments under the article, a zionist supporter is rebutted quite superbly by an anonymous legend who goes by the name, “OrwellianUK”. here is what he/she writes:

how can you be so completely upside down in your judgement? It is the Israeli policy of genocide; well documented albeit supressed which is the Nazism here. John Pilger does not ‘take the Palestinian side’ as you dishonestly claim – he merely does what he has always done – speak out for the poor and helpless when they are being oppressed and murdered by the brutality of the Military/Propaganda machines of the Powerful. I can guarantee you, that if what is happening in Gaza were happening to a Jewish community somewhere in the world, Pilger would be the first to condemn it and reveal the historical truths censored by our media. If you truly want examples of facism, you need look no further than US foreign policy and Israeli policy towards Palestine. Contrary to your unqualified assertion, this is not a war. It is an organised and gradual genocide by the 4th biggest military power on the planet backed by the largest, against one of the poorest societies in the world. Or perhaps you are choosing to be wilfully ignorant in believing the US/Israeli/UK propaganda which far outweighs anything Hamas can manage and which follows a simple rule: Their violence: ‘Terrorism’. Our violence: ‘Defending Democracy’

Read George Orwell’s 1984 and this will become evident.

here is john pilger’s piece in the new statesman. oh OrwellianUK, i salute you!
