The spoils of war: parting gift for Bush's brother in arms, January 14, 2009

WONDERFUL Statue of Liberty ! ! !
 
READER: Many WRH readers are probably wondering how Israel can have so much control over the USA government. Former FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, the original director until his death(over 40 years) kept classified files on EVERY MEMBER of Congress and many other individuals that he deemed possible "security risks" to the United States. Most of these files had nothing to do with security, but instead included personal information that could be used to blackmail these people. ...

Currently, we have US "leaders" bending over backwards for a nation that has been committing egrerious war crimes for 60 years and ignoring UN Resolutions, thanks to blind support from these same "leaders". What gives? Here are some very possible scenarios that are currently in place-

1) Blackmail- Using the same techniques as J. Edgar Hoover's FBI, Israeli spies/moles are collecting info on anyone who might seek public office, info that can be used as leverage(sex life, past hidden crimes, kealth records, etc.). When these people are "under control" because of this damaging material, they are then funded and guided by Israeli-connected interests. The threat of revelaion has to be terrifying to someone whose political life depends on a good clean public image!

2) Financial/media backing of candidates/politicians that espouse pro-Israeli policies without the need to blackmail.

3) Threats- when people like Paul Wellstone, John F. Kennedy, Jr, Mel Carnahan, Vince Foster, etc. die in suspicious circumstances and the questions surrounding these deaths are not answered but covered up, you have to consider the possibility of the threat of physical violence to sway politicians.

4) Taking on Israeli lobbies is bad for your political heath. We have seen what AIPAC can and does do to politicians who don't tow a strict pro-Israeli line. Money is given to their opponents and the compliant pro-Zionist media does all it can to destroy a candidates/politician's credibility.

With all of these things in mind, how can anyone take seriously Israel's claim to be the only democracy in the Middle East. ... It's time to get the "termites" out of the foundation of the American government!
 
Wayne Madsen Report (in full) -
January 14, 2009 -- Amnesty International provides details on U.S.-contracted arms ship destined for Ashdod, Israel: Amnesty International (AI) has provided details on the ship contracted by the U.S. Military Sealift Command to transport high explosives and munitions to the Israeli port of Ashdod.

AI reports: "the Wehr Elbe, a German-owned cargo ship, left the U.S. on December 20 with 989 containers - of high explosives and other munitions. The ship, hired and now legally controlled by the U.S. Military Sealift Command, is destined for the Israeli port of Ashdod and was due to transit via Greece -- though its latest reported position indicates that the shipment's route may have changed. [Greek opposition protesters have announced that they are descending on the port of Astakos to protest the use of the Greek port to re-arm Israel, Astakos was to be the transit point for the Wehr Elbeand the Military Sealift Command has announced it is by-passing of the Greek port].

Tenders for two other arms shipments totalling 325 containers of US munitions, including white phosphorous, were approved by the Pentagon on December 31, four days after the start of Israel's current attacks on targets in Gaza. These two consignments were due to be shipped to Ashdod, Israel, from Astakos in Greece. Although that particular tender has now been cancelled, according to information provided to Amnesty International by the U.S .Military Sealift Command, the U.S. Defense Department says it is now looking at other means to deliver the munitions to a U.S. stockpile in Israel, which can be transferred to the Israeli Defense Force in 'an emergency.'

White phosphorous can cause severe burns and is allegedly being used as an airburst in densely-populated civilian areas of Gaza, in a manner that would likely violate humanitarian law. "

AI stated, "the U.S. government should not proceed with these or any other arms shipments to Israel, and the Greek and other governments should not allow their ports or other facilities to be used to ferry arms to Israel or the other parties to this conflict . . . In addition to locally produced arms, Israeli forces are carrying out unlawful attacks using foreign weaponry and other military equipment supplied mainly by the USA but also from other countries."

In addition to the United States, Israel's largest arms supplier, other nations involved with arming Israel are, according to AI, "Germany, France, the UK, Spain, the Slovak Republic, the Czech Republic, Canada, Slovenia, Australia, Romania, Austria, Belgium, Hungary, Serbia-Montenegro and Bosnia-Herzegovina." AI also reports that The Netherlands and Greece have both been major transit countries to Israel, especially for U.S. arms.
 
90 organizations, mainly French, to prosecute Israel for War Crimes: A French lawyer working for the lawsuit said that the eighth article of the Rome Conventions specifies a war crime as “a deliberate act that aims at harming civilians and causing great suffering, harming them physically, destroying their property in a way that cannot be justified”.

The lawyer, Jill Devier, said that a country cannot justify its war crimes by saying that it was subjected to missile fire, “even if the Palestinian homemade shells fired into Israel also constitute a war crime”.

He added that the lawsuit against Israel is well supported by two main legal basis;

1. The inequivalent Israel attack against Gaza, as it includes shelling heavily populated areas. He said that this issue was also raised at the Security Council on December 31.

2. The targets of the Israeli shelling were mainly civilian, as most of the casualties are children and women, and the army also shelled governmental facilities, mosques, sports clubs, and a building which had journalists on its rooftop.
 
Jewish activists chain themselves to Israeli Consulate building: Other activists who were not chained to the building walked in a circle outside the consulate, chanting: "Let Gaza live! End the siege now." One of the signs they carried read: "The Israeli consulate has been closed for war crimes."
 
INSCRIPTION ON STATUE OF LIBERTY:
"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

 
Family of Iraqi shoe thrower says he remains in isolation: More than a month has passed since an Iraqi television reporter threw his shoes at President George W. Bush during a news conference held to highlight what Bush called a successful U.S. military effort to pacify Iraq.

The journalist, Muntader al-Zaidi, 29, who was immediately arrested, has been allowed only two visitors - and none since Dec. 21, according to those close to him. His family and his lawyer say they do not know where he is being held and are gravely concerned about him.

On Wednesday, Dhiyaa al-Saadi, Zaidi's lawyer, said he had recently seen medical records that were part of Zaidi's court file that added credence to the journalist's claim that he had been beaten and tortured after his arrest on Dec. 14 by the security detail of Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki.

Saadi said two separate medical reports conducted by government physicians within a week of Zaidi's arrest described bruising that covered the reporter's face and body but was especially severe on his legs and arms; a missing tooth; a gash on the bridge of his nose; and what appeared to be a burn mark on his ear.

Saadi said he had not been permitted to remove the records from the office of the judge investigating the case, so the existence of the documents could not be verified independently. But the account of Zaidi's wounds matches injuries described by Zaidi's brother after his prison visit last month.

Uday al-Zaidi, 33, said Wednesday that he feared that his brother, who faces up to seven years in prison, might not emerge from government custody.
