New World Order

The concept that has underpinned the modern geopolitical era is in crisis

Libya is in civil war, fundamentalist armies are building a self-declared caliphate across Syria and Iraq and Afghanistan’s young democracy is on the verge of paralysis. To these troubles are added a resurgence of tensions with Russia and a relationship with China divided between pledges of cooperation and public recrimination. The concept of order that has underpinned the modern era is in crisis.

The search for world order has long been defined almost exclusively by the concepts of Western societies. In the decades following World War II, the U.S.—strengthened in its economy and national confidence—began to take up the torch of international leadership and added a new dimension. A nation founded explicitly on an idea of free and representative governance, the U.S. identified its own rise with the spread of liberty and democracy and credited these forces with an ability to achieve just and lasting peace. The traditional European approach to order had viewed peoples and states as inherently competitive; to constrain the effects of their clashing ambitions, it relied on a balance of power and a concert of enlightened statesmen. The prevalent American view considered people inherently reasonable and inclined toward peaceful compromise and common sense; the spread of democracy was therefore the overarching goal for international order. Free markets would uplift individuals, enrich societies and substitute economic interdependence for traditional international rivalries.

This effort to establish world order has in many ways come to fruition. A plethora of independent sovereign states govern most of the world’s territory. The spread of democracy and participatory governance has become a shared aspiration if not a universal reality; global communications and financial networks operate in real time.

The years from perhaps 1948 to the turn of the century marked a brief moment in human history when one could speak of an incipient global world order composed of an amalgam of American idealism and traditional European concepts of statehood and balance of power. But vast regions of the world have never shared and only acquiesced in the Western concept of order. These reservations are now becoming explicit, for example, in the Ukraine crisis and the South China Sea. The order established and proclaimed by the West stands at a turning point.

First, the nature of the state itself—the basic formal unit of international life—has been subjected to a multitude of pressures. Europe has set out to transcend the state and craft a foreign policy based primarily on the principles of soft power. But it is doubtful that claims to legitimacy separated from a concept of strategy can sustain a world order. And Europe has not yet given itself attributes of statehood, tempting a vacuum of authority internally and an imbalance of power along its borders. At the same time, parts of the Middle East have dissolved into sectarian and ethnic components in conflict with each other; religious militias and the powers backing them violate borders and sovereignty at will, producing the phenomenon of failed states not controlling their own territory.

The challenge in Asia is the opposite of Europe’s: Balance-of-power principles prevail unrelated to an agreed concept of legitimacy, driving some disagreements to the edge of confrontation.

The clash between the international economy and the political institutions that ostensibly govern it also weakens the sense of common purpose necessary for world order. The economic system has become global, while the political structure of the world remains based on the nation-state. Economic globalization, in its essence, ignores national frontiers. Foreign policy affirms them, even as it seeks to reconcile conflicting national aims or ideals of world order.

This dynamic has produced decades of sustained economic growth punctuated by periodic financial crises of seemingly escalating intensity: in Latin America in the 1980s; in Asia in 1997; in Russia in 1998; in the U.S. in 2001 and again starting in 2007; in Europe after 2010. The winners have few reservations about the system. But the losers—such as those stuck in structural misdesigns, as has been the case with the European Union’s southern tier—seek their remedies by solutions that negate, or at least obstruct, the functioning of the global economic system.

The international order thus faces a paradox: Its prosperity is dependent on the success of globalization, but the process produces a political reaction that often works counter to its aspirations.

A third failing of the current world order, such as it exists, is the absence of an effective mechanism for the great powers to consult and possibly cooperate on the most consequential issues. This may seem an odd criticism in light of the many multilateral forums that exist—more by far than at any other time in history. Yet the nature and frequency of these meetings work against the elaboration of long-range strategy. This process permits little beyond, at best, a discussion of pending tactical issues and, at worst, a new form of summitry as “social media” event. A contemporary structure of international rules and norms, if it is to prove relevant, cannot merely be affirmed by joint declarations; it must be fostered as a matter of common conviction.

The penalty for failing will be not so much a major war between states (though in some regions this remains possible) as an evolution into spheres of influence identified with particular domestic structures and forms of governance. At its edges, each sphere would be tempted to test its strength against other entities deemed illegitimate. A struggle between regions could be even more debilitating than the struggle between nations has been.

The contemporary quest for world order will require a coherent strategy to establish a concept of order within the various regions and to relate these regional orders to one another. These goals are not necessarily self-reconciling: The triumph of a radical movement might bring order to one region while setting the stage for turmoil in and with all others. The domination of a region by one country militarily, even if it brings the appearance of order, could produce a crisis for the rest of the world.

A world order of states affirming individual dignity and participatory governance, and cooperating internationally in accordance with agreed-upon rules, can be our hope and should be our inspiration. But progress toward it will need to be sustained through a series of intermediary stages.

To play a responsible role in the evolution of a 21st-century world order, the U.S. must be prepared to answer a number of questions for itself: What do we seek to prevent, no matter how it happens, and if necessary alone? What do we seek to achieve, even if not supported by any multilateral effort? What do we seek to achieve, or prevent, only if supported by an alliance? What should we not engage in, even if urged on by a multilateral group or an alliance? What is the nature of the values that we seek to advance? And how much does the application of these values depend on circumstance?

For the U.S., this will require thinking on two seemingly contradictory levels. The celebration of universal principles needs to be paired with recognition of the reality of other regions’ histories, cultures and views of their security. Even as the lessons of challenging decades are examined, the affirmation of America’s exceptional nature must be sustained. History offers no respite to countries that set aside their sense of identity in favor of a seemingly less arduous course. But nor does it assure success for the most elevated convictions in the absence of a comprehensive geopolitical strategy.

BILDERBERG, KILLING KITTENS …

BILDERBERG, KILLING KITTENS, ORGIES OF SEX AND THE NEW WORLD SYSTEM FEUDAL!

By Paul McGuire – On June 2, 2014

The 2014 meeting of the Bilderberg Group in Copenhagen, Denmark, consists of the global elite participating in what is perceived as an informal discussion on global issues, where discussion topics include “The Future of Democracy and the trap of the middle class “and” The economic recovery is sustainable? ” These issues indicate that the Elite Bilderberg is ready to see the disappearance of the middle class in the United States and Europe. During 2006, information disclosed Bilderberg revealed that the elite know two years in advance about the economic collapse of 2008 and reinvested trillions of dollars of assets to position itself for the recession.

However, behind the Bilderberg Group, which was founded in 1952, largely through the efforts of Nazi Prince Bernhard, there is a network of constructions empires, wars, occult secret societies, royal families, Satanism and sexual orgies. Indeed, part of the elite in Europe and America is completely involved in the occult and sexual orgies, and represented in films like Eyes Wide Shut, directed by Stanley Kubrick. Kate Middleton, wife of Prince William, is a good friend with the owner of sex clubs “Killing Kittens” which offer exclusive orgies for wealthy women of Europe and now the United States. The British Royal Family has a long history of alleged activities with obscure sexual deviations. seems that the European elite and American live by a different set of standards than most of the rest of us. Behind some of the most elite names, there are allegations of massive heroin, sex slaves celebrities and global criminal enterprises empires.

There are European news sources who claim that:

In 1946, Prince Philip became engaged to Princess Elizabeth by coercion Lord Mountbatten. A European reports argue that there is a secret pedophile network in some European royal families and suggests that Lord Mountbatten was the first rights to sex with the firstborn of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, who was Prince Charles. Kate Middleton’s father allegedly participated in activities “sexual hunts” with Prince Philip and some have even suggested that it controlled the Prince William sexually.

After World War II, the Nazis bought land in Argentina by a Nazi operation organized by Peter William, who was an agent for Prince Philip, who planned the operation. It was Lord Louis Mountbatten who introduced the prince Philip to Princess Elizabeth, when Prince Philip was 18, Princess Elizabeth 13 years. Prince Philip co-founded with Prince Bernhard the World Wide Fund for Nature.

Before the fall of Germany in World War II, Adolf Hitler had planned continuation of the Third Reich, with its renaissance as the Fourth Reich. Hitler told the man who was to execute this plan, Martin Bormann, “Bury your treasure …. because you will need to begin a Fourth Reich. ” The treasure was talking about Hitler was a very sophisticated money distribution and corporate assets in nations like America and other countries around the world. Bormann The Group, which was a worldwide network of companies led by veterans well-trained SS, was the largest concentration of money power under the control of a single nation in history. This financial empire, consisting of a wealth widely fly to Europe, exceeded more than $ 200 billion in 1943 and it was only a part of the empire.

It is widely alleged that the grandfather of George Bush, U.S. Senator Prescott Bush now deceased, was a director directing a number of companies that profited from their involvement with financial investors in Nazi Germany. But these allegations are not only made ​​against the Bush family, but against who-is-who in the commercial and political empires in America and Europe. nazi money helped finance the Bilderberg, NATO and the IMF Group.

Bilderberg system goes back centuries; The elites have learned to manipulate the economy to enrich themselves and enslave ordinary people. At meetings of Bilderberg, there the most powerful people every major nation on earth, the leaders of multinational corporations, financial institutions responsible for world, the heads of the intelligence services and the internet and social media leaders, all in the same bed figuratively if not literally.

At Bilderberg, the kings and queens of the new feudal system rallied behind their ditches “Bilderberg Château” in Copenhagen, Denmark, to expand their empire, continue their slave trade, engage in sexual orgies and rule the world . feudal systems of old Europe have never really disappeared, except for the accident that was once called America where its citizens had realized that they had received certain inalienable rights such as life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, not by government, but by the nature of God.

At the meeting of Bilderberg 2014, more than 120 globalists meet to continue their program 60 years to centralize power in a single global political and economic system. A key element of this system is the Partnership for transatlantic trade investments made the world a giant multinational corporation under their total control.

In January 1985, in Brussels, Wisse Dekker, CEO of Phillips, has unveiled a plan, “Europe 1990”, before an audience of 500 people, most of whom were commissioners of the newly appointed European Community.

The Dekker paper was an internal project led by Philips representative government affairs Dekker Brussels Coen Ramaer.

According Ramaer, he instructed the men:

“Imagine yourself as dictators of Europe and you’ve decided that the work should be done in five years. And, experts began by saying, But that’s impossible! Be realistic! And I told them I did not care if it was realistic or not. When they accepted this idea, they found it fascinating and they discovered that it could be done with political will, of course. “

(The policies of big business in the single market program, by Maria L. Green, The American University, Visiting Fellow , Harvard University. School of International Service at American University, 4400 Massachusetts Avenue NW, Washington DC 20016. Paper presented to the Association for the Study of the European Community, the third biennial international conference, May 27, 1993, Washington DC.)

America was unique because most of its founding fathers rejected what has been called “the divine right of kings to rule” on the people. kings have no divine right to rule over the people; They organized and have conspired to create a Babylonian system where they themselves illegally granted this right in order to enslave other men and other women for their own profit. To make this legitimate lie and brainwash for people to accept, they created elaborate costumes to wear gold jewelry and crowns, religious ceremonies, rituals and spectacular temples to convince ordinary people that they are indeed divine . This is the essence of the Luciferian and Satanic religions, the use of occult power, witchcraft, sex, rituals, music, drugs and worship to create a magic power system that dates back to ancient Babylon.

The model of a modern feudal system is an archetype control program created by programmers who flourished on Earth before the Flood of Noah in places like Atlantis. these programmers, who first descended on Mount Hermon in the ancient Phoenicia, were fallen angels who mated with human women and gave humanity the technology and science of the fallen angels. At the Tower of Babel, the global model of the feudal system was anchored in the consciousness of the human race. Satanism, sex orgies, international drug trafficking and perpetual war Oligarchy established in Babylon remains in power.

Behind the scenes of Bilderberg and the United States, you see the proliferation of occult secret societies and the expansion of the slave state. Modern slaves working in the new global feudal system have been scientifically programmed to believe they are not slaves but free people. It is an illusion that borders on madness, but it is simply a fulfillment of the call of Aldous Huxley for a scientific dictatorship where people will learn to love them slavery.

The Opium Wars of Britain and Europe against China was one of the first examples of the use of drugs to enrich the elite and enslave the people pursued by “phony war against the drug” America. marijuana, methamphetamine, heroin and cocaine travel freely across international borders despite all the X-ray machines and excavations by palpation. ‘s opium trade in Afghanistan worth billions of dollars and the globalists like George Soros are actively involved in drug trafficking, including the decriminalization of marijuana.

The drug money is allowed to flow through the International Monetary Fund and is used by the new global feudal system to subjugate and control entire populations. ‘s drug money supports the global financial system and s’ flows through Wall Street, international banks, Cayman Islands, Dubai and other financial systems.

In 1991, Governor Bill Clinton attended his first Bilderberg meeting and met David Rockefeller, who told him that the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) was of paramount importance to him. Clinton Rockefeller said he would support NAFTA and quickly became the president. NAFTA has benefited the powerful globalists like Rockefeller, but has literally killed the middle class in America by outsourcing jobs and manufacturing overseas. Nearly all the Republican leaders and the media have promoted the NAFTA as they continued to support immigration, which will destroy any possibility of choice to free elections because 11 million more people will still vote for socialism and that is the goal of the game!

Those who control the media, internet and both political parties are the same people who control the Bilderberg and their agenda is one World Socialist Government with two sets of rules. A set of rules applies to the elite, who is exempt from all kinds of regulations and laws, and another set of rules and regulations which are subject to the feudal class of slaves, once the middle class, which is actually the new lower class. Henry Kissinger and many other members of the ruling elite are aged 91 years or more and they are exceptionally dynamic and healthy. They receive special treatment by an elite of doctors who use technologies, medicines and treatments secrets.

They certainly will not be “sacrificed” in the slaughterhouse called universal health care where we, the slaves will be denied treatment by a computer and it will tell us that we are too old to live. Boomers and other generations raised on the internet are too brain dead to read the writing on the wall; The plan is for them to be euthanized, and their children will be happy to give up their lives because they will lose their homes and their retirement funds if they do not!

There are very real plans with abundant documentation that I put in my book, A Prophecy of the Future of America, plans for a New World Order will have no middle class populations in Europe and . of America There would be two categories of people: leaders and feudal slaves with scientific brain washed to accept a subordinate part-time job, a good meal with a smiling face and virtual solo sex with computers. Recent neurological studies show that men and women who watch pornography have realigned their brains and they prefer virtual sex real sex! The world Bilderberg eliminate any form of democracy. Just as in Nazi Germany there will be programs “cradle to grave” where government tests will determine what career is best for you and you do not have the ability to choose your own career or pursue your own dreams in the hope of achieving a . better life This is not an exaggeration; This is teaching your children now! Only the ruling class will be allowed to accumulate wealth and power, as was the case in England in the time of Charles Dickens where children worked in factories .


Israel: International Anger Mounts

By Felicity Arbuthnot

Global Research, July 23, 2014

 

Irish politician pulls down Israeli flag at children's sailing event

Councilor Hugh Lewis takes down the Israeli flag in Dublin, Ireland. (Independent.ie)

You take my water

Burn my olive trees

Destroy my house

  • Take my job                      

Steal my land

Imprison my father

Kill my mother

Bomb my country

Starve us all

Humiliate us all

But … I am to blame: I shot a rocket back.” (Placard first seen in Gaza, 2012.)

The “most moral army in the world” from “the only democracy in the Middle East” has attacked hospitals, a home for the disabled, a geriatric hospice, demolished five mosques, razed entire neighborhoods, erased entire families – the youngest – so far – just three days old if you do not count the unborn, as in the case of twenty nine year old Samar Al Hallaq (1) killed with her two sons, aged four and five, other members of her family and carrying her third child. Her husband was critically injured.

Yet again a war is declared against children and the young. Forty three percent of Gaza’s population is aged 0-14 and just under twenty one percent, 15-24. (Index Mundi, 2013.) Thus sixty four percent, 0-24.

As Israel trades on eternal victim status whilst murdering neighbouring, fellow Semites with seeming legal impunity, stealing land, obliterating homes, nullifying history preceding even the coming of Christ in the land of his birth, the UN bleats weakly, as ever, of “concern” and “regret” some countries have had enough.

Ecuador has recalled their Ambassador from Israel, Chile has suspended their free trade agreement negotiations. Bolivia’s President Evo Morales and Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro have called the assault on Gaza genocide and “extermination”, with Maduro demanding that the UN address the: “systematic violation of the Human Rights of the Palestinian population in Gaza by the State of Israel and adopt the necessary measures to halt those violations.” (2.) Venezuela severed all relations with Israel after its last massacre, “Cast Lead” over Christmas and New Year 2008-2009.

As Prime Minister David Cameron calls the onslaught on the 1.7 million people of Gaza in their forty mile long ghetto “not disproportionate”, President Maduro stated: “It is clear you cannot morally compare occupied and massacred Palestine with the occupying state, Israel, which also possesses military superiority and acts on the margins of international law.”

Meanwhile, amid massive protests in South Africa, the African National Congress in Parliament (who suffered their own long years of apartheid) is calling for the Israeli Ambassador to leave with “immediate effect” and for the South African Ambassador to Tel Aviv to be immediately recalled.

The ANC Chief Whip, Steone Sizane, MP., in a blistering address said: “The office of the UN Secretary General issues statements which have no effect. The UN Security Council must stand up and act to support vulnerable Palestinian people at the time when they need their protection.

“The situation involving Palestine and Israel is an undeclared war, in which the aggressor, Israel, has destroyed the Palestinian economy, robbed people of their land, unilaterally changed borders, and unilaterally built a wall of exclusion to keep Palestinians out of their land. When it feels provoked, it unleashes the most sophisticated military hardware on a defenceless people. Palestinians have been reduced to cheap labor for the Israel economy.

“This relentless destruction of the Palestinian territory and its people by Israel must be stopped. The international community needs to act in unison on this matter.”

Mr Sizane’s call is backed by a host of political and civil bodies including faith groups, the Young Communist League, the National Association of Democratic Lawyers, seventy two leading South African Jews and many others. (3)

In Europe, the Norwegian government is resisting pressure to expel the Israeli Ambassador from pro-Palestinian and human rights organizations with the leader of the Joint Committee for Palestine (Fellesutvalget for Palestina, FuP), Anna Lund Bjørnsen telling Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK): “Norway can not uncritically maintain close diplomatic relations with a state that does not show respect for human life, international treaties or UN conventions.”

Even the resisting Foreign Minister Børge Brende acknowledges: “the suffering you see in Gaza and the West Bank”, and cites Israel’s particular responsibility in driving the peace process because its illegal settlements were the key to the conflict.

Labor Party MP and Chairwoman of the Defence and Foreign Affairs Committee in the Norwegian parliament, Anniken Huitfeldt is widely backed by seven left leaning parties in her call for boycotting products manufactured by Israel in the occupied territories “without wasting time.”

Two parties supporting the boycott, the Labor Party and the Center Party, are demanding a review Norway’s policy of selling arms to third-world countries, which resell those arms to Israel.(5)

In neighbouring Sweden calls are mounting by those involved in academic and cultural boycotts for all collaboration between Swedish and Israeli institutions to cease, with abstention: “from participation in EU funded projects in which Israel is involved. A letter was also addressed to the Board of the Royal Institute of Technology, which has a comprehensive cooperation program with the Technion University in Haifa.”(6)

In Ireland, Dublin City Council unanimously called on the Irish government to enforce an arms and trade embargo on Israel (7) and seventeen EU governments have now: “published online guidance warning their citizens and businesses about risks involved in trade and other economic links with illegal Israeli settlements.” The latest twelve to issue warnings did so last week, after the start of the assault on Gaza. They are: Portugal, Austria, Malta, Ireland, Finland, Denmark, Luxembourg, Slovenia, Greece, Slovakia, Belgium and Croatia, “in a move coordinated at EU level.” France, Italy and Spain issued similar guidelines the previous week.(8)

Across the world in the Maldives the government has scrapped three agreements with Israel and discussions are gathering pace to prohibit the import of Israeli goods. The tropical nation of 1,200 islands, at some potential cost to the economy has said they will also reject investors from Israel, noting international condemnation of Israel’s current actions. (9)

On 19th July, the Guardian published a letter signed by six Nobel Laureates, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Adolfo Peres Esquivel, Jody Williams, Mairead Maguire, Rigoberta Menchú and Betty Williams and numerous academic, intellectual, artistic and signaturies from many countries, including João Antonio Felicio, the president of the International Trade Union Confederation, and Zwelinzima Vavi, the general secretary of the Confederation of South African Trade Unions calling for the UN and governments to impose a military embargo on Israel.(10)

The letter underlines starkly the culpability of the international community in Israel’s ongoing genocidal actions: “Over the period 2009-2019, the US is set to provide military aid to Israel worth $30bn, while Israeli annual military exports to the world have reached billions of dollars. In recent years, European countries have exported billions of euros worth of weapons to Israel, and the European Union has furnished Israeli military companies and universities with military-related research grants worth hundreds of millions.”

It concludes: “Governments that express solidarity with the Palestinian people in Gaza, facing the brunt of Israel’s militarism, atrocities and impunity, must start with cutting all military relations with Israel. Palestinians today need effective solidarity, not charity.”

One Nobel Laureate’s signature was not on the letter, President “Change we can believe in” Obama.

As the death toll exceeded five hundred and serious injuries three thousand two hundred Norwegian Dr Mads Gilbert stated on Democracy Now: “This was truly a massacre, and the injuries were just horrible … Children came in without heads and totally dismantled by the shelling of the residential areas.”

On the same day (Monday 21st July) Obama merely said weakly that he had: “serious concerns.” Pathetic.

Israel too now has “serious concerns” of another kind. Hours after US airlines Delta, United and US Airways cancelled all flights to Israel on Tuesday 22nd July, the US Federal Aviation Authority issued an advisory banning all US carriers from flying to Tel Aviv. Air Canada has also cancelled their flights. The European Aviation Safety Agency has followed suit issuing a “strong recommendation” that airlines avoid travel to Israel until further notice. Air France, EasyJet, Germany’s flag carrier Lufthansa, and the Netherland’s KLM were among European airlines that had already cancelled services.

The financial implications for Israel can only be imagined. Having spent two weeks telling the world of the mortal danger the country faced (in spite of crowds of residents picnicking in the open, standing on car roofs to watch the destruction of Gaza) the Transportation Minister and Prime Minister Netanyahu declared that flying to the country is “safe” and that: “There is no reason whatsoever that American companies would stop their flights and hand terror a prize.” Somewhat contradictory all round.

Further, last year 3.5 million tourists visited Israel, boosting the economy by over twelve Billion $s. This year Yahoo Travel cites Leon Avigad, the developer of Browns Hotels, a chain of boutique hotels in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem who says the conflict was already: “devastating us economically … We are losing tons of money by the minute. The entire profit from the summer (to date) is wiped out.” In the south of the country: “Hotels are completely empty … almost everything is closed.”

Surprisingly, even Israel’s loyal friends, the US State Department have been advising against all but most essential travel to Israel since February.

Especially courageous are the stands across the world by Jews themselves. Ten thousand orthodox Jews demonstrated in support of Gaza in New York, and across the world they, with other Jewish denominations have taken a visible and courageous stand.

Jewish Voices for Peace statement by their Rabbinical Council perhaps encapsulates what many believe. Headed “Stop the Bombing. Hold Israel Accountable” it reads in part:

“We are currently amidst ‘the three weeks’ – the annual Jewish period of quasi-mourning that leads to the fast day of Tisha B’Av. This is the season that bids us to look deeply into the soul of our community and examine the ways that our sinat chinam – baseless hatred – has led to our communal downfall.

“Driven by the spirit of this season, we cannot help but speak out in response to the horrific loss of life currently taking place in Gaza, at the hands of the Israeli military. We deplore the Israeli government’s military crackdown in the West Bank that led to its lethal, military onslaught on the people of Gaza.  We mourn the deaths of hundreds of innocent people, including children.

“We condemn Hamas’ rockets attacks on Israel and the anxiety, injury and death they have caused. But we cannot view this as a war between two equal sides. Israel has unlimited hi-tech weaponry; it dominates Gazan airspace, its borders, its utilities and economy…

“We can not stand idly by as the Jewish State acts with such wanton disregard, with such sinat chinam, for the humanity of the mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, children and elders of Gaza.

“As Jews, we abhor the abuse of human rights that are standard practice of our fellow Jews in the Israeli government and Israeli military. This is not the path of justice.” (11)

Also grieving is NATO Member Turkey, declaring three days of mourning for Gaza this week.

Yesterday activists from Jewish Voices for Peace were arrested for a peaceful demonstration at the Friends of the Israeli Defence Forces on New York’s Broadway.

In Israel, Peace Now and Hand in Hand participants are being “shouted down or physically attacked” for their principled stance. Last week, in Tel Aviv: “about 250 Jewish protesters were set upon, punched and pushed by a well-organized group of right wingers in an attack that left several people with bruises, black eyes, or other injuries. Another (of) about 1,000 people, was also attacked” with eggs and plastic bottles.(12)

Perhaps it is time for President Obama to earn his Nobel Peace status.

This week Dr Mads Gilbert addressed a passionate appeal to him, writing:

“Mr Obama, do you have a heart? I invite you, spend one night – just one night – with us in Al Shifa’a Hospital. I am convinced, one hundred per cent, it would change history. Nobody with a heart and power could ever walk away from a night in Shifa’a without being determined to end the slaughter of the Palestinian people.” If only.

The last word goes to increasingly intellectually challenged Prime Minister David Cameron, who declared on July 21st: “We can’t stand by when a strong nation bullies a weak one.” Indeed. Sadly, he was talking about Russia, who, for those fully bolted down, seems to have bullied no one.
