Charlestown Massacre: There Is Something Seriously Wrong With not only American Society*

Charlestown Massacre: There Is Something Seriously Wrong With not only American Society*

Jon Stewart last night made an emotional speech about racism and gun crime during The Daily Show, which is sure to be controversial. Staring at the camera with a solemn face, Stewart began by apologizing to the audience:

“I have one job, and it’s a pretty easy job,” he said, explaining that all he has to do is come in, write some jokes based on the news, and get paid a lot of money for it. “I didn’t do my job today,” Stewart admitted. “I got nothing for you because of what happened in South Carolina.”

The Charlestown church shooting is just the latest in a long line of horrific attacks by lone gunmen in the United States. And while the likes of Alex Jones, the NRA, and even left-wing defenders of the constitution will argue that guns are a right for all free citizens, the rest of the world looks on in horror at American society: in Switzerland, everyone has a gun, and this doesn’t happen there. Clearly, something isn’t right across the pond. Stewart knows this, and his frustration is clear.

“I honestly have nothing other than just sadness that we that we have to peer into the abyss of the deprived violence that we do to each other, and the nexus of a racial wound that will not heal,” he went on. Then comes the only thing close to a joke in this particular segment: “I’m confident though that by acknowledging it, by staring into that and seeing it for what it is, we still won’t do jack shit.” The audience laughed nervously. “Yeah! That’s us!” Stewart responded.

But he didn’t want to talk about gun control. What’s the point? Even Vince Vaughn believes in the right of all Americans to bear arms. It’s a topic that is complicated and controversial, and Stewart doesn’t talk about that here- what’s the point?

The debate that he wants to have is tied up in the United States’s history, present, and future. It’s about the “death machines flying over five or six different countries to ‘keep Americans safe,” in Stewart‘s words. “That’s the part I cant wrap my head around,” he said, his anger showing now. Referencing our collective paranoia and violent reactions to ISIS and Al Quaeda, our drone wars in far-flung countries that most people couldn’t even find on a map, and the deep-rooted racism in American society, Stewart notes:

“It’s the disparity of response between when we think foreign people are going to kill us, and when we kill ourselves.”


Israel questions, sets free 16 young Jewish settlers after Christian church burned down

A group of young Jewish settlers suspected of torching the Catholic Church of the Multiplication, on the spot where Jesus is believed to have performed a Biblical miracle, have been released without charge. Israel has vowed to find the arsonists.

The church, located on the banks of the Sea of Galilee, was set ablaze early Thursday morning. Graffiti saying, “The false gods will be eliminated,” in Hebrew – a quote from a Jewish prayer – was also daubed on a wall. The church was marking the Biblical story of the Feeding of the 5,000, in which Jesus fed a crowd with five loaves and two fish, and has been rebuilt several times since the fifth century.

The building suffered extensive damage, with the roof partly collapsed and stone walls charred. Several members of the clergy suffered smoke inhalation, and one 80-year-old monk was reportedly hospitalized. The altar of the Catholic church is said to have been left intact, despite the damage to its other rooms. A church shop with Bibles and prayer books was completely destroyed in the fire.

Sixteen Jewish youths visiting the area from the West Bank were detained for questioning following the arson. The group, which included several seminary students and legal minors, were set free with no conditions after their testimonies were taken.

“In an area near the church, 16 youths were detained for investigation in order to check their involvement in the incident before dawn,” Israeli police spokeswoman Luba Samri said in a statement. “All 16 were released, with no conditions attached, after being interviewed and giving statements.”

“The shocking arson of the church is an attack on all of us,” Netanyahu said in a statement. “Israel’s freedom of religion is a cornerstone of our values and it is anchored in the law. We will mete out justice to those responsible for this atrocious act. We have no room for hatred and intolerance in our society.”

Father Jamal Khader, rector of the Latin Patriarchate Seminary in Beit Jalla in the West Bank, linked the attack with a stone-throwing assault on the same church perpetrated by radical Jewish youths last year, and accused the authorities of “not doing enough” to stop similar incidents.

Known as “price tag” attacks, these acts of vandalism of mainly Muslim and Palestinian, but also Christian and Jewish sites, are supposedly a form of retribution for anti-settler steps and activity, as well as for terrorist attacks against Jews.

Earlier this year, a mosque was set on fire in a village near Bethlehem, with the Star of David and the word “Revenge” painted on one of the walls. Last year, attackers defaced a Catholic church in Jerusalem, daubing the words, “Jesus is garbage.”

Tag Meir, an Israeli anti-racism group, says that no prosecutions have been brought in connection with dozens of such incidents that have taken place over the last three years.

“Punishing these crimes is not a priority for the authorities,” said Yossi Saidov, a Tag Meir activist.

The message that comes down from the prime minister to the individual policeman is that it’s all right that this happens, it’s not so terrible. If 43 synagogues were attacked in Poland and the authorities didn’t stop it, we would scream that it was anti-Semitism and rightly so.”

Experiment Proves Reality Does NOT Exist Until Observed*

Experiment Proves Reality Does NOT Exist Until Observed*

Reality has been proven to not exist until it is observed. A quantum physics test gives an object the ability to act either as a wave or a particle, it has been shown that it will only act in one way or the other when it is being measured.

Associate Professor Andrew Truscott said, “the atoms did not travel from A to B. It was only when they were measured at the end of the journey that their wave-like or particle-like behaviour was brought into existence”.

John Wheeler first came up with the experiment, known as the delayed-choice-thought-test, in 1978 when nobody thought it would ever be possible to test.

How far we have come!

Truscott’s most mind-blowing conclusion is that “it proves that measurement is everything. At the quantum level, reality does not exist if you are not looking at it”.

With DARPA now developing and testing literal death-rays, and the discovery of oceans on Saturn’s moons, our understanding of science and reality is reaching new heights every day.

By Andrew Griffin

Reality doesn’t exist until it’s measured, at least for very small things, new research has found.

By replicating a famous experiment where an object is given a choice for how to behave, physicists found that the object doesn’t actually make its decision until it is seen. The finding proves one of the central parts of quantum theory, a branch of science that has been applied to make much of our modern technology.

Scientists gave an object a chance either to act like a wave or a particle, and looked to find out when the decision was made. While one might expect that it is either one or the other, quantum physics predicts that it will only act one way or the other when it is measured, after it has decided — and that was confirmed by the experiment.

To perform the test, scientists isolated a single helium atom. They then dropped it through a laser beam, and used a random number to decide whether a second set of beams were added that would interfere with the atom’s path.

But the researchers found that number wasn’t calculated until after the atom had passed through the crossroads of lasers and decided which way to go. Though the atom had already decided whether it would behave like a wave or a particle, it wasn’t decided which way it would go until it was measured, the research found.

“The atoms did not travel from A to B. It was only when they were measured at the end of the journey that their wave-like or particle-like behaviour was brought into existence,” said associate professor Andrew Truscott, the scientist who led the experiment.

The test is known as the delayed-choice thought experiment, and was proposed by John Wheeler. When he came up with it in 1978, it seemed impossible that it could ever be put to the test — but researchers from the Australian National University were able to run a slightly varied version of it in tests.

“It proves that measurement is everything. At the quantum level, reality does not exist if you are not looking at it,” Truscott said.

Truscott and his team published their findings in Nature Physics.

Israel Attacks Syrian Army Base*

Israel Attacks Syrian Army Base*

Israel launched missile attacks against an army base in Syria’s South-eastern al-Suwayda province on Wednesday night.

The Syrian dissidents were quoted by Qassioun news website as claiming that Israel fired several missiles at the base of the Syrian army’s division 150 in Suwayda in which the SAM-5 anti-aircraft missiles are stocked up and is 20km away from Khalkhala airport.

Qassioun claimed that it was a deterrence measure to prevent the access of armed groups to the long-range missiles with high destructive power.

“These claims are raised as Israel is everyday increasing its assistance and supports for the terrorist groups in Syria and the terrorists have not even once attacked Israel and its interests in the region,” political analyst Seyed Mostafa Khoshcheshm said.

Reports in January said that Israeli hospitals continue admitting the terrorists who are wounded in Syria.

The terrorists wounded in fierce clashes with the Syrian army are currently undergoing treatment in the Israeli hospitals, according to the Israeli media outlets.

The admittance of a growing number of Syrian militants in the Israeli medical facilities is a clear indication of the continuing support being offered by the Tel Aviv to the terrorists who are fighting against the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

About 465 terrorists, who were wounded in Syria, have received treatment only at the Israeli Nahariya hospital in Galilee, according to reports published by the Israeli Walla website.

In December, a terrorist who had been wounded in the military operations in Syria was admitted to the Israeli Poriya hospital in Tiberias in Israel.

The Walla website reported that the injured terrorist, who had been admitted to the Poriya hospital, was 37 and had a leg wound, noting that Poriya Hospital has so far treated up to 130 wounded terrorists.

Israeli forces have already moved hundreds of terrorists who were wounded while fighting the Syrian army and people, in clear violation of the UN and Security Council resolutions.

Giving medical treatment to wounded terrorists is only one aspect of the Israeli unlimited support provided to the terrorist organizations fighting the Syrian army and attacking civilians.

This support has amounted to no less than Israeli warplanes launching attacks against sites inside the Syrian territory, proving Israel’s undoubted involvement in the internationally-devised terrorist war still raging in Syria since 2011.

NWO’s Version of Yoga Stirring up a Frenzy*

NWO’s Version of Yoga Stirring up a Frenzy*

By Nimisha Jaiswal

To most yoga lovers in the US, the Om chant and sun salutation routine are ordinary parts of a healthy, normal workout.

But in India, where tens of thousands are preparing to mark the first International Yoga Day this Sunday, these practices are explosive symbols of religious tension.

In fact, the government has said they may even be banned from the celebrations.

Prime Minister Modi’s government has given contradictory statements on the matter, first stating that the Om would be optional or even replaceable by “Allah” for minorities who wish to avoid the Hindu chant. However, in a turnaround, the latest program released by the government now includes Om chanting at the beginning of the Yoga Day event.

This Sunday, 30,000 Indians will set a world record for the largest yoga gathering ever, assembling on the road which connects the Indian Parliament to India Gate in New Delhi. However, due to opposition by Muslim bodies, organizers have decided that the “Surya Namaskar,” or sun salutation, is off the table.

Yoga day was supposed to be a triumph for Modi, who convinced 177 co-sponsors and 192 participants at the UN General Assembly to join in celebrating the first ever International Day of Yoga on June 21. Through promoting this ancient practice, the Indian leader promised practitioners “a sense of oneness within yourself, the world and the nature.”

But it has turned out to be quite the headache at home. Trust between the right-wing Hindu nationalist leader and minorities has always been low. Modi has been criticized heavily for keeping quiet through riots and when his ministers have made crass, anti-Muslim remarks. When Muslim groups learned that students at government schools would be required to participate in yoga and the sun salutation, they launched a nationwide protest that forced Modi’s government to take action.

Muslims object to the sun salutation because their faith commands them to bow to Allah only. Chanting Om has also been opposed as it is used frequently in Hindu prayer.

The government has now removed the Surya Namaskar, or sun salutation, from the sequence of exercises to be performed by participants in the Yoga Day celebrations. They have also said it is not mandatory for students to participate in events organized at their schools if their religion forbids it.

Shripad Naik, the Minister for Yoga and Traditional Medicine, met with Muslim organizations and urged them to participate in Yoga Day. “If people do not want to chant ‘Om’, they can say ‘Allah’,” he said.

However, a week after his comments, the yoga ministry officially included the chanting of Om at the beginning of the mega-event in Delhi, drawing further condemnation from Muslims.

The objections of Muslims have drawn mixed reactions. Indian Christians in the state of Mizoram have joined the opposition, urging Christians to boycott Yoga Day events because they fall on a Sunday. But Yogi Adityanath, a member of Parliament who belongs to the right-wing party in power, said that all those who do not wish to do the sun salutation should literally go off and die.

“Those who see sectarianism in the sun as well, I would request them to go drown in the sea,” he said at a rally in Varanasi.

Opposition to yoga on religious grounds is not new, or exclusive to India. In April this year, the US Fourth District Court of Appeals rejected a plea by a group of Californian parents who sued a school for teaching yoga classes, arguing they were a form of religious indoctrination.

WHO Tells Governments they must Provide Abortion and Sex Change*

WHO Tells Governments they must Provide Abortion and Sex Change*

The World Health Organization jumped into the culture wars this week and issued a report telling every country to remove restrictions on abortions – including for adolescents – provide sex change surgery, and remove criminal restrictions on sexual conduct such as extramarital sex, prostitution, and homosexual behaviour.

WHO’s controversial policy prescriptions, such as sex counseling and advocating cheap and unsafe abortion, have been previously exposed by the Friday Fax. However, this report was hailed as “major and long-awated [sic]” by an Australian intersex advocacy group because it “contains a specific section on intersex people, as well as other stigmatized social groups including lesbians and gay men, and transgender people.”

The World Health Organization (WHO) – which admitted its lack of competence exacerbated the recent Ebola epidemic that cost over 11,000 lives – is spending attention and resources to promote sexual rights. This little-noticed report comes as people are reeling from news of homosexual and transgender activism – including Olympic athlete Bruce Jenner’s announcement that he is a she, and schools allowing gender-confused boys to use girls’ bathrooms.

The report calls on governments to ensure

“comprehensive sexuality education” for young people in order to impart the “knowledge, skills and values to make informed and responsible choices about their sexual lives.”

These “values” are contrasted with traditional concepts of morality, which are characterized as negative. WHO also wants governments to limit the right of health care providers to decline from providing abortion or abortifacient drugs or assisted reproductive technologies.

WHO concedes that

“all legal systems use criminal law to deter, prosecute and punish harmful behaviour, and to protect individuals from harm.”

Yet it does not acknowledge that “consensual sexual conduct occurring between competent persons” could itself be harmful, even with high standards of available health care.

The phrases “sexual and reproductive health” and “reproductive rights” have appeared in UN documents since the Cairo conference on population and development in 1994. But the formulation “sexual rights” – which WHO, an agency of the UN, relies on – has repeatedly been rejected by countries, largely because it is considered to encompass sexual orientation and gender identity, which would be in conflict with the laws of many UN member states.

WHO equates sexual health with unrestrained sexual license by stating that “[f]or sexual health to be attained and maintained, the sexual rights of all persons must be respected, protected and fulfilled.”

The authors credited with the overall development of WHO’s report admit elsewhere “there is currently no formal political international consensus on the term ‘sexual rights’.” They credit WHO alongside the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) with generating an “understanding that sexual rights are grounded in universal human rights.”

WHO qualifies its own definition of “sexual rights” with the disclaimer that it “does not represent an official WHO position and should not be used or quoted as such.”

IPPF refers to “sexual rights” as an “evolving set of entitlements” which “cannot be ignored any longer” and includes abortion and forms of sexual expression prohibited by law in many countries.

Many of WHO’s arguments on legalizing abortion and establishing special protections for sexual orientation and gender identity are based on the opinions of UN treaty monitoring committees, which frequently go beyond the treaty agreements.

CIA not Amused at the Rising Left in Spain*

On the 7th floor of the US Embassy’s enormous building in Madrid is the CIA station. For more than half a century, active intelligence work has been carried out from this site, but its objective is not only to gather secret information on the domestic and foreign policies of Spain. A wide range of delicate issues aimed at guaranteeing the US’ strategic interests in the country are looked at on a daily basis. Thus the station focuses on preventive operations to ‘neutralise’ organisations and politicians that are potentially hostile to the US.

Spain is quite rightly considered to be one of the EU’s weakest links. A series of corruption scandals has undermined the credibility of Mariano Rajoy’s government (Sp. Presidente del Gobierno Mariano Rajoy). The anti-popular austerity policy has sharply aggravated the situation in the country: there has been a rise in unemployment, especially among young people, the salaries of public sector workers have been cut, social expenditure has been reduced, and education and healthcare has deteriorated. Many people unable to pay their rent and utility bills have been thrown out onto the street. Television reports on forced evictions have had a far greater impact on the mood of the Spanish electorate than any opposition propaganda: the crisis is not sparing anyone, we could find ourselves in their place tomorrow, and the country needs a new leader and a new domestic and foreign policy.

Surveillance of young, radical left-wing politicians in Spain began long before the groups and organisations they led were consolidated into the Podemos party (in English, Podemos translates as «We can»). Every stage of the process was monitored via agents, electronic surveillance and social networking sites. Operations files were replenished with information on university lecturers and students, political and social activists, members of the creative intelligentsia, and sympathetic journalists. Every step taken by the project’s key players – Pablo Iglesias, Juan Carlos Monedero and Íñigo Errejón – was documented.

Contact between these young ‘protesters’ and members of populist regimes in Latin America – Venezuelans, Ecuadorians, Nicaraguans and Bolivians – has caused, and is still causing, American and Spanish security agencies a great deal of anxiety, while trips by the ‘protesters’ to Brazil, Argentina and Cuba have caused just as much alarm. Juan Monedero, who was an adviser to President Hugo Chávez on financial and economic issues between 2005 and 2010 and provided expert assistance to the Ministry of Planning and the Miranda International Centre on staff training, has aroused particular suspicion. Monedero also advised the governments of Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador and Nicaragua on establishing non-cash settlements in regional trade.

The Podemos party’s entry onto the Spanish political scene (in February 2014) was accompanied by the intelligence agencies stepping up their covert activities to expose ‘possible’ compromising information on Podemos activists and the party’s leader, Pablo Iglesias. It is no secret to the ‘subjects’ of the surveillance that they are being vigilantly monitored by the CIA and the US National Security Agency (NSA). It stands to reason that the National Intelligence Centre (CNI) of Spain, whose senior officials regard the activities of Podemos in a negative light, is not staying on the sidelines. The reason is clear: the seemingly stable two-party system is becoming a thing of the past and the emergence of a new political force has become problematic.

General elections are to take place in Spain at the end of 2014 and, according to the predictions of political analysts, they are going to change the balance of political forces in the country considerably. It is becoming increasingly obvious that the centre-right People’s Party (Partido Popular – PP) and the centre-left Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party (PSOE) will lose their dominant positions. The popularity of the Podemos party was confirmed at the local elections on 24 May 2015. Suffice it to say that Manuela Carmena, a protest movement activist, is now in charge of Madrid’s city hall, which has traditionally been ruled by PP protégés, and Ada Colau, an advocate of real, rather than cosmetic, reforms in the country, is now the mayor of Barcelona. Hundreds of new mayors are promising to make the fight against economic inequality, social justice, and the involvement of the people in the running of the country their priority.

Pablo Iglesias attended the inauguration ceremony for the new mayor of Madrid and called for his fellow countrymen and Podemos supporters not to rest on their laurels, but to continue fighting for change and defeat Mariano Rajoy’s People’s Party in the general elections.

Podemos’ success was overshadowed by the resignation of Juan Monedero. In January 2015, the Complutense University of Madrid and the Finance Ministry, as if on command, began looking into the legality of substantial sums of money received by the politician from the governments of ALBA countries (the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America, (Sp. Alianza Bolivariana para los Pueblos de Nuestra América), is a socialist alliance of Latin American and Carribbean states). At the same time, an article appeared in the Conservative newspaper El Pais accusing Monedero of ‘falsifying’ most of his academic employment history. There is no doubt that this compromising information would not have emerged without the involvement of US intelligence agencies. I need only mention that the newspaper Diario Las Americas (published in Miami), which is used by the CIA to disseminate so-called ‘active measures’, published an interview with Spain’s former prime minister, José Aznar. He accused Podemos of being financed by Venezuela: «Podemos is a political movement that fully advocates totalitarian models and populist ideas». Naturally, the party filed a lawsuit for libel and slander.

After a huge hullabaloo in the media, the issue of «subversive funding from Hugo Chávez» was explained satisfactorily and El Paisissued an apology, but Monedero still felt it necessary to leave Podemos. The upcoming election campaign promises to be tense, and his previous association with Latin American populists and adherence to Marxist ideology will certainly be used by his political opponents.

It is important to note that Podemos has recently been avoiding provocative political language. Now, its moderate-centre electoral programme is geared towards the wider electorate. There is no mention of plans to abolish the Spanish monarchy, to grant the regions the right to secede from Spain, to nationalise key industries and banks, and to seize without compensation surplus accommodation from its owners and give it to the homeless. Pablo Iglesias himself is declaring his allegiance to social democratic ideals and the Swedish model of socialism. He has even talked about the history of the party’s name, Podemos. Apparently, it does not come from Marx or Lenin, but from Barack Obama, who led his fight for the presidency in 2008 under the slogan «Yes, we can!»

Distrust of Podemos in the higher echelons of the US is only getting stronger, however. That the party intends to use the experience of Venezuelan populists to conquer hegemony in the country is constantly being emphasised in the information coming from the intelligence agencies. For now, however, Podemos’ minimum goal is to win in the elections. Only then, apparently, will Pablo Iglesias and his team take steps to seize the real powers. Such ‘focus’ by the Americans on interpreting Iglesias’ plans is intended to justify the magnitude of the complex intelligence measures against the Podemos party. One needs only compare the list of US Embassy personnel in Madrid over the last five years with the current one (published by the Spanish Foreign Affairs Ministry) to see that the size of the CIA station operating under the roof of the political department has more than tripled.

The question of whether the US intelligence agencies in Spain have sufficient potential to ‘adjust’ the results of the forthcoming elections still remains open. During the last election campaign in Mexico, the moderate populist López Obrador had a distinct advantage. Washington’s candidate, however, was Peña Nieto, and with the help of questionable manipulations behind the scenes of the electoral process, he became the next president of Mexico.

During closed parliamentary hearings, the head of the National Intelligence Centre (CNI) of Spain, Félix Sanz Roldán, said he «felt uneasy» about the operations of US intelligence agencies in the country, especially the US National Security Agency (NSA).

«They are guided by their own laws», said Roldan.

He also referred to the covert activities of secret service agents in Spain from «allied countries». Nine such agents have been expelled from Spain in recent years. Roldan did not specify which countries exactly, but judging from publications and independent sources, he was referring to the US and Israel. The number of ‘illegals’ like these in Spain is measured in three figures.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs invited US Ambassador James Costos, and later the charge d’affaires Luis Moreno, to get an explanation regarding the NSA’s illegal ‘wiretaps’ and its monitoring of information exchanged over the internet, including social networking sites. The Spanish authorities’ timid attempts to at least normalise the behaviour of US intelligence agencies in their country are proving fruitless.

One gets the impression that in some cases, Rajoy’s government is not dealing with the activities of foreign intelligence services against Spanish citizens in the country as categorically as CNI head Roldan tried to prove in parliament. Observers are not ruling out the possibility that the Podemos leader’s involvement in the presidential elections will be sabotaged with the help of a large-scale act of provocation by US intelligence agencies.
