Prime minister accused of racist ploy to try to win next month’s general election

“He is stirring the dirt,” said Gabriel Abdullah, an Arab citizen of Israel who runs a tourism company in Jerusalem, of the Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu. “That’s very, very dangerous, but he will use anything.”

Abdullah was not alone among members of Israel’s Arab minority on Monday in lambasting Netanyahu for saying the country was “not a state of all its citizens”. Many characterised his comments as a racist ploy to try to win the forthcoming general election.

Radical proposal to artificially cool Earth’s climate could be safe, new study claims

Umm – these are the type of people who have brought us to where we are now – on brink of earth death! Like Icarus, they believe they can out smart nature, God, and… Their view of science is more about ego and self-delusion. The proven outcome that nearly all synthetic pesticides end up causing more problems than the one they thought they were solving, is proof enough that we need stop polluting.

Pelosi comes out against impeaching Trump: ‘He’s just not worth it’ | US news | The Guardian

The House judiciary committee, which would lead an impeachment inquiry, recently launched a broad investigation of corruption, abuse of power and obstruction of justice allegations against Trump that could amount to impeachable offenses. The House judiciary committee chairman, Jerrold Nadler, has said he believes Trump has committed obstruction of justice, but that it is too soon to decide on impeachment. “We do not now have the evidence all sorted out,” Nadler told ABC’s This Week program on 3 March. He added: “Before you impeach somebody, you have to persuade the American public that it ought to happen.”

Now all eyes will be on the Brexiters whose minds May needs to change before they cast their votes on Tuesday

Now the battle of interpretation begins, and to the naked ear the next 24 hours in Westminster might sound a lot like an argument about international law. In fact, the debate over the “legally binding changes” that Theresa May announced, her voice hoarse with exhaustion, as the Strasbourg clocks chimed midnight will not, ultimately, be a legal one. For all the talk of “instruments” and “protocols” and “arbitration panels”, this will come down to politics.

For Sale: A POW Journal Documenting World War II’s ‘Great Escape’

article-image

The 75th anniversary of World War II’s most iconic prisoner-of-war escape is less than two weeks away, on March 24, 2019. Just in time, Hansons Auctioneers in England is offering a rare relic of the daring feat: a diary that takes us inside the mind of one of the prisoners who planned it.

In its “Medals & Militaria” auction on March 22, 2019, Hansons will sell the journal that belonged to the late Royal Air Force Flight Lieutenant Vivian Phillips while he was held in the Nazis’ Stalag Luft III camp, in present-day Poland. According to the auction house, it is the only such diary believed to have survived not only the camp, “but also a forced march of hundreds of miles across Germany” later in the war. It is expected to sell, alongside Phillips’s medals, for around $20,000 (or, £15,000 to £18,000).

article-image

Phillips was captured by the Nazis in May 1943, when his plane was shot down over Amsterdam during a bombing raid on a power station. He joined prisoners from a variety of countries including the United States, Canada, Australia, France, Norway, Latvia, and Belgium in Stalag Luft III, which the Nazis considered one of their more secure POW camps. That’s why Roger Bushell—a Royal Air Force pilot who had been shot down during the rescue at Dunkirk, and who had subsequently escaped from two German POW camps—was being held there when Phillips arrived. Undeterred, Bushell was planning another escape, despite the microphones that the Nazis had placed nine feet beneath the ground, and the sandy terrain that did not lend itself to tunnel construction.

As History details, the prisoners dug their tunnels—codenamed Tom, Dick, and Harry—via a trapdoor underneath a stove, which was kept lit in order to deter guards from approaching it. Slowly, they were able to dig beneath the range of the microphones, taking off their clothing so the guards wouldn’t notice any telltale sandy stains.

“All this was done under the very noses of the guards,” wrote Phillips in his journal, one of those distributed to POWs by the Canadian Red Cross. He himself was one of the diggers, which Hansons says would have suited him as he was “rather short of stature and from Welsh coal-mining stock.” Phillips wrote that, eventually, he “graduated to a kind of foreman” in “charge of a gang of eight fellows…” A model of classic British stoicism, Phillips nonchalantly noted that “the whole thing was most efficiently run…” The operation inspired the 1963 Hollywood classic, The Great Escape.

When the time came for the prisoners to put their tunnels to use, they had to draw names at random so as not to overwhelm the makeshift passageways. Phillips’s name was not drawn, but he was actually lucky: Only three of the 76 escapees ultimately eluded the Nazis. The rest were caught within two weeks, and 50 of the prisoners—including Bushell—were then (illegally) executed on Hitler’s personal orders. (A postwar military tribunal found 18 Nazis guilty of war crimes for the executions; 13 of them were executed in turn.)

And so, even with all of the writings and drawings depicting daily life in the POW camp, and describing plans for the escape plot, the most striking section of Phillips’s journal may be the “In Memoriam” list, which names the executed captured prisoners and their countries of origin. It cements the journal as more than a record of brilliant enterprise in the face of fierce adversity, but as a testament to enduring humanity in times of brutality.

The most hate and racism in 2018 was directed at Palestinian members of the Israeli Knesset and their political parties in Israel during the discussions and passing of the Nation-State Law, which gives rights to only Jewish citizens.

Venezuela: Ocean Of Lies

Gang of press is sometimes hard to get truth to… Good job!

In Saner Thought

Venezuela is still brewing and the MSM wants you to believe the lies spread by the Neocons and the Neo-liberal twats….

Venezuela Lies #1: The Venezuelan People Have No Food and the Shelves Are Bare

In these videos (here and here) on the ground in Caracas, Max Blumenthal exposed one of the lies about Venezuela that is constantly repeated, i.e. that the people have no food and the supermarket shelves are bare.

The summit between our Beloved Leader and the Beloved Leader in North Korea has sucked all the energy out of the situation in Venezuela…..the US is still pretending to care about the people of the country and trying to sell the idea that Maduro (Tell me…does Trump’s buddy Calamari look like Maduro?) is driving the country to ruin.

The US Neocon-led strategy is increasingly clear: establish a ‘beach-head’ on…
