Druze attack Israeli Ambulance Carrying Wounded Syrian Rebels*

Demonstrators from the Druze community have attacked an Israeli military ambulance carrying injured Syrians, killing one person, police said.

A second Syrian being brought to hospital for treatment was in critical condition after the mob, alleging that the wounded were rebels, attacked the vehicle on Monday.

“A crowd attacked an ambulance with stones near Majdal Shams on the Golan Heights,” a police statement said, adding that one of the injured “died after the attack”.

I call on Druze leaders to act immediately to calm tensions said Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli prime minister.

It said two soldiers who were also inside the vehicle had been lightly wounded.

The statement did not identify the Syrians or give further details about their injuries before the attack.

Over the last two years, Israel has provided medical care to hundreds of Syrians, including fighters, usually transferred from the ceasefire line with the Golan Heights in military ambulances to mainly two hospitals in the north.

The Druze accuse rebels of committing atrocities against their community in Syria and have called on Israel to stop treating injured fighters. Instead they call on the government to protect Syrian Druze and some even want Israel to provide them with weapons and air support against the advances of al-Qaeda’s branch in Syria, the Nusra Front.

‘Grave incident’

Public radio earlier said that around 200 Druze from Majdal Shams had pelted the ambulance with stones, forcing it to stop, and dragged the wounded Syrians from the vehicle.

“This is a very grave incident. We will not permit anybody to take the law into their own hands, and we will not allow anyone to hamper Israeli soldiers in the course of their duty,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said.

“I call on Druze leaders to act immediately to calm tensions.”

Tensions have flared in Druze areas of northern Israel and the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights after rebels surrounded a government-held Druze village on the Syrian side last week.

On June 10, at least 20 Druze were killed in an unprecedented shoot-out with al-Qaeda affiliate the Nusra Front in Idlib province in north-western Syria, the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

Syria’s Druze minority has largely remained loyal to President Bashar al-Assad since the war began in 2011.

Second attack

Monday’s attack came hours after another group of Druze also blocked and threw stones at an army vehicle they believed was transferring wounded Syrian rebels for treatment, police said.

Police spokeswoman Luba Samri said the first incident happened in the northern Israeli town of Horfish and that the Druze tried to check the identities of those inside the ambulance.

Ayoob Kara, a Druze deputy Israeli minister, sought to reassure his kinsmen about Syrian casualties coming into Israel.

In a statement, Kara said Defence Minister Moshe Yaalon had told him Israel would not admit fighters from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) or the Nusra Front. Israeli officials have said they did not make treatment conditional on casualties’ affiliations.

Officials say there are 110,000 Druze in northern Israel, and another 20,000 in the Israeli-held Golan.

Israel seized 1,200 square kilometres of the Golan Heights in the Six-Day War of 1967 and later annexed it in a move never recognised by the international community.

Herbicide-Resistant Insects Meet GMO Crops – Guess which are Winning*

Herbicide-Resistant Insects Meet GMO Crops – Guess which are Winning*

By Christina Sarich

Bt corn was originally created, or so Monsanto claims, to eradicate a farming nuisance known as rootworm. But as evidence from a GMO corn lab comes in, we are learning how the pests are living the lives in fields planted with GM Bt corn seed.

In 2011, a cornfield planted in Iowa with Bt corn was found to be completely decimated by rootworm. A study, just published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, describes the western corn rootworm’s rapid evolution after dining on the engineered crop.

The study’s lead author, Aaron Gassmann, states that:

“The widespread planting of crops genetically engineered to produce insecticidal toxins derived from the bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) places intense selective pressure on pest populations to evolve resistance.

Western corn rootworm is a key pest of maize, and in continuous maize fields it is often managed through planting of Bt maize. During 2009 and 2010, fields were identified in Iowa in which western corn rootworm imposed severe injury to maize producing Bt toxin Cry3Bb1. Subsequent bioassays revealed Cry3Bb1 resistance in these populations.

Here, we report that, during 2011, injury to Bt maize in the field expanded to include mCry3A maize in addition to Cry3Bb1 maize and that laboratory analysis of western corn rootworm from these fields found resistance to Cry3Bb1 and mCry3A and cross-resistance between these toxins.

Resistance to Bt maize has persisted in Iowa, with both the number of Bt fields identified with severe root injury and the ability western corn rootworm populations to survive on Cry3Bb1 maize increasing between 2009 and 2011.”

The authors also found that not only did the rootworm thrive in Bt corn fields, but the pest had the potential to “develop resistance rapidly” when Bt crops don’t produce a high enough level of Bt toxin, and therefore would require farmers to use more pesticides to eradicate the pest.

In short, Bt corn didn’t eradicate the pest it was meant to destroy; it only made it stronger, thereby causing even more pesticide use. Sounds like a perfect biotech creation made in cahoots with companies that sell chemicals for a living – and yet we trust them to make our food?

A highly concerning study published in Vaccine titled “Evaluation of invalid vaccine doses in 31 countries of the WHO African Region,” reveals that infants within the countries of the World Health Organization (WHO) African Region are routinely being given inappropriately timed and spaced vaccine doses, presumably putting them at far greater risk of vaccine associated adverse health effects.  Remarkably, this is the first study of its kind to systematically evaluate invalid vaccine doses in the African Region.

The study used data from a decade’s worth of vaccine records from 31 African region countries representing a population of 134,442 individuals, and determined invalidly timed and spaced vaccinations for three vaccines (diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis [DTP1, DTP3] and measles-containing vaccine (MCV)) using WHO criteria.

The study found the median percentages of invalid DTP1, DTP3 and MCV vaccinations across all countries were 12.1% (interquartile range, 9.4–15.2%), 5.7% (5.0–7.6%), and 15.5% (10.0–18.1%), respectively.  Moreover, they found:

  • That of the invalid DTP1 vaccinations, 7.4% and 5.5% were administered at child’s age of less than one and two weeks, respectively.
  • In 12 countries, the proportion of invalid DTP3 vaccinations administered with an interval of less than two weeks before the preceding dose varied between 30% and 50%.
  • In 13 countries, the proportion of MCV doses administered at child’s age of less than six months varied between 20% and 45%.

The study found,”a substantial proportion of children in this region were vaccinated earlier than recommended or received vaccine doses spaced inappropriately close to each other.”

The study also acknowledged that presently the criteria with which the success of the immunization campaign in Africa are evaluated is based solely on coverage levels but does not take into account whether these vaccines are being administered properly, i.e. their so-called “validity.”

Vaccines and DepopulationDiscussion

The study has a number of disturbing implications. First, it is known that vaccination timing can profoundly affect both the risk of adverse effects and its claimed effectiveness. Generally, the earlier that vaccines are administered, and the shorter the interval between them, the more likely they will cause harm, including sudden infant death, which we have reported previously here. Also, the recent CDC whistleblower scandal revealed that the agency knew that the sooner African-American boys were vaccinated with MMR the higher their risk of autism (3.4 fold increased risk). Clearly this link between vaccine timeliness and adverse effects is so well known that even the CDC and the mainstream media has chosen to cover it up.

3d2c9-iuSecond, because early or poorly spaced vaccinations are classified as invalid by the WHO some countries recommend repeating them at the appropriate age, this further increases the risk additive or synergistic adverse health effects from over-vaccination.

Like so many studies published in journals like Vaccine that assume a priori the benefits of vaccination outweigh their risks, the authors concluded that while invalid vaccinations are surprisingly common in African countries, the real risk is in the failure to optimally protect against vaccine-preventable infections and not the health risks of the inappropriately administered vaccines themselves:

“Timing of childhood vaccinations should be improved to ensure an optimal protection against vaccine-preventable infections and to avoid unnecessary wastage in these economically deprived countries.”

This is all the more disingenuous considering that research already exists revealing that certain vaccine campaigns in Africa have resulted in increased risk of death, as well as the accumulating body of research showing over a hundred adverse health effects linked to vaccination signaled by the peer-reviewed published literature itself. There are also highly concerning reports that African children have been enrolled in dangerous vaccine experiments without their parent’s consent.

Studies like this demonstrate just how illusory is the concept that global vaccine agendas such as occurring in Africa are actually working.  We should expect that at the very least the vaccines should be administered appropriately, presumably as the scientific evidence itself dictates, for there to be any assurance that they will produce safe and effective outcomes. Sadly, however, the evidence itself increasingly points to the dramatic disconnect between vaccine policy and their real-world effects.

UK Bishop Warns Of ‘A Slide Towards Ever Greater State Control’ as Pressure Mounts On Christians*

A Catholic bishop in the UK has written to his flock telling them he fears “of a slide towards ever greater State control.”

And in contradiction to Prime Minister David Cameron’s secular “British values” agenda, the bishop has set forth his own version, citing “fidelity to our Christian patrimony” and “values derived from love of God.”

Bishop Philip Egan of Portsmouth Diocese issued his pastoral letter “The Church’s ‘Best Kept Secret’” to be read out in churches this month.

His comments come just as the British government steps up its rhetoric around ‘British values’ and the tackling of extremism, leading many to fear opposition to abortion and same-sex “marriage” will be labelled “extremist” and liable to punishment.

Concerns were heightened at the announcement of a new ‘Extremism Bill’ in the Queen’s speech at the State opening of Parliament this year.

In far-reaching comments, British Prime Minister David Cameron has said, “For too long, we have been a passively tolerant society, saying to our citizens: as long as you obey the law, we will leave you alone. It’s often meant we have stood neutral between different values. … This government will conclusively turn the page on this failed approach. … That means actively promoting certain values.”

He went on to cite equal rights regardless of gender or sexuality, as part of his vision. Under the banner of equality and rights, Britain has seen a number of people maligned, demoted, sacked, fined, and taken to court over issues like abortion and homosexuality, in recent years.

However, Bishop Egan has hit back, reminding society that “what makes Britain great is fidelity to our Christian patrimony, a concern for justice, freedom and the rule of law, values derived from love of God and neighbour, fused with our native genius.”

“It is about building a society founded on authentically human values: respect for life from conception to natural death, supporting marriage and the family, the dignity of work, caring for the poor, safeguarding the environment and promoting peace at home and abroad.”

Bishop Egan called on Catholics to “participate vociferously in the democratic process, contributing our distinctive, saving message,” even though many Christian teachings, especially those about authority and sexuality, are now seen as “countercultural.”

In further comments, British Home Secretary Theresa May has said the introduction of the Extremism Bill, to include ‘Extremism Disruption Disorders,’ aims to tackle not only extremism, but all forms of “intolerance,” “hate,” and “those who reject our values.” The bill is expected to create a raft of wide-ranging powers for State agencies.

Described by some as worryingly prophetic, Bishop Egan hit home his message with the following words: “There is a real danger in Britain today, with advances in technology and as traditional Christian values are eclipsed, of a slide towards ever greater State control.”

Bishops Denounce Horrific Desecration of Christian Images in ‘Gay Pride’*

Brazilian Catholic bishops are denouncing recent homosexual “pride” parades in which Christian symbols were publicly desecrated, and asking for legal action to be taken against the perpetrators.

Members of the National Conference of the Bishops of Brazil (CNBB) First Southern Region have issued a press release decrying the “clear manifestations of disrespect for the religious consciousness of our people and of the major symbol of the Christian faith, Jesus crucified.”

Noting that the desecration of religious symbols “is recognized as a crime in the Criminal Code” of Brazil, the bishops ask the federal government, which is the “guardian of the Constitution,” to “defend the rights that have been injured.”

As reported last week, homosexuals marching in Sao Paulo’s annual gay parade earlier this month sparked outrage among many Brazilians when they displayed a seminude transsexual crucified on a cross. Other marchers smashed Christian images or sat on them naked, with the images covering their genitals.  One transsexual was photographed in a lewd striptease in front of a church.

Rogério Rosso, representing the nation’s federal district in the House of Deputies, responded by proposing a new law prohibiting such displays and imposing a fine and up to eight years in prison for perpetrators. Another legislator, Senator Magno Malta, denounced the government-funded parades for going “outside the boundaries” of proper discourse, sowing “intolerance and disrespect for religious liberty.” He has asked federal prosecutors to begin a criminal investigation of the behavior.

The bishops express their “astonishment to see that an event like this one could be authorized and patronized by the government, and used to promote acts that clearly offend the rule of law that the Constitution guarantees.” They remind Catholics that “the profanation of religious symbols require from us an act of reparation and religious satisfaction, asking the Lord God for the pardon of the sins committed and the conversion of hearts.”

“A lot of people have asked me about the image of a transsexual on the cross during the Gay Parade,” tweeted Odilo Pedro Scherer, the Cardinal Archbishop of Sao Paulo.

“I understand that those who suffer feel like Jesus on the cross. However, it is necessary to take care not to trivialize or use religious symbols in an irreverent manner, respecting people’s religious sensibility. If we want receive respect we must show respect.”
