Twitter Censoring Criticism of Israel As Hate Speech

22 Jun

[Published 22 June, 2017]

Between 1948 – 54 and possibly over a longer period, Israel was responsible for the abuse and disappearance of 100’s if not several thousand Yemeni babies.

This heinous act has been reported by the BBC, Haaretz, the New York Times, the Financial Times, the Independent, and many other global news outlets.

According to various official and independent sources, parents of newborn Yemeni babies, were told by doctors and other officials, that their babies had died during or shortly after birth.

We now know this to be a lie and a coverup by hospitals, the medical profession, and the Israeli government.

In December 2016, the Jerusalem Post published news of 200,000 documents concerning what is believed to have happened to these innocent babies.

Originally, these files and documents were ordered sealed until 2071 and only released after much public pressure and outrage.

Many of these babies are now believed to have been given to Israeli families, whereas other babies may have been used as organ donors, and some underwent post-mortem surgical procedures.

Similarly, another injustice committed by Israeli doctors and officials, is the recent revelation that some Ethiopian Jewish mothers, were forcibly sterilised.

So what does this injustice and travesty have to do with the social media platform, Twitter, you may ask?

According to my own sources, it would appear from a number of reports received, that Twitter is accusing users of hate speech; for merely posting any comments or links to articles or references, of these missing and disappeared Yemeni babies.

Presumably, under pressure from members of the Jewish diaspora, Zionist supporters and organisations, and the Israeli government, that users who post such content are committing blood-libel and thus an expression of hatred or prejudice towards Jews.

On the contrary, posting something on social media which is in fact based on the truth and historical, documented facts, can never be a form of hate speech and should never be curtailed.

Users who link to these reports and/ or post any links, comments, or articles, are being threatened with having their accounts suspended by Twitter and advised to remove them, thus denying the truth of occurrence of these events.

If we go down this route, then we will all ultimately lose control of our individual sovereignty and universal human rights, including the freedom to speak out and criticise our own and other governments for what are crimes against humanity.

It would appear in this instance, that Twitter is bowing to official pressure to silence Israel’s critics.

General Election Special: Boris Johnson Smears Jeremy Corbyn and is Spectacularly Caught Out

[Published 28 May, 2017]

For those who are either unaware, do not know, or particularly care, Boris Johnson is, miraculously, the current British Foreign Secretary.

Let’s briefly go through the backstory leading up to this momentous calamity before explaining the point of this blog article.

Before Theresa May was Prime Minister, it was Boris Johnson.

After David Cameron stood down – to effectively cut and run before his expenses, offshore investments and private donors could be made public once he became an ordinary MP again – Johnson (Cameron’s Etonian school chum) was briefly made Prime Minister before he also cut and ran.

This left the reins to Theresa May; in what some would describe, as the poison chalice, of managing the Brexit negotiations.

To utilise another apt analogy: Johnson left May holding the baby, so-to-speak.

Typical of so many men really!

Just so you get the measure of this oafish, crass, and incompetent buffoon – yes, Johnson, like so many other men – is that oblique and cowardly.

Fast-forward to the last 24 hours, and in his usual audacious and clumsy manner, Johnson wades in feet first and is promptly handed his ass to him after being caught red-handed in an orchestrated smear campaign of the Labour Leader, Jeremy Corbyn, by posting the following on Twitter:

“I genuinely think it is important people know Corbyn claimed in recent days he never met the IRA. You cannot trust this man!”

This, do not forget, is within 24 hours of Krishnan Guru-Murthy, on Channel 4 News, spectacularly exposing a clueless effort by Sir Michael Fallon, another Tory minister, who has previously been exposed for his links with Syrian Leader, Bashir Assad, also trying to smear Jeremy Corbyn, by attributing comments that were actually made by Johnson to Corbyn.

As Guru-Murthy slapped down Fallon, Johnson did not reckon on the savviness and intelligence of the general public, and so they gave him a similar slap down.

As noted in the following screenshot of a post by @ChrisMcCusker67, Johnson’s smear of Corbyn, as a traitor and enemy of the British people, was an out-and-out lie and factually wrong.

Another Twitter user, @nickh1877, was also quick to point out that Theresa May has met with the IRA.

Screen Shot 2017-05-28 at 15.48.58.png

To be clear, Corbyn only met with members of the IRA after the peace process negotiations had begun. Any and all meetings with the IRA, prior to the start of the peace process in Northern Ireland, were conducted by Tory ministers.

Some of those meetings were conducted in secrecy.

So, ask yourself, if anyone is an enemy of the people and a traitor, who is it?

It is certainly not Corbyn. In fact, Corbyn only became involved in the peace process at the request of Mo Mowlam. 

That said, if the path to peace and conflict resolution indeed must come through “jaw-jaw and not war-war”, to quote Winston, can we really blame Corbyn, or label him a traitor or an enemy, even if there were evidence that he had met with sitting members of the IRA?

The truthful answer is a resounding, NO!

It appears that the Tory campaign to win the General Election 2017 is genuinely on its last legs and that they are willing to try anything, including throwing the kitchen sink at Corbyn, a long with any decency and integrity, in order to do so at all costs.

Can Corbyn win? Yes, he can!

Will Corbyn win? Well, that is entirely up to you guys!

Remember: This election is not about the British people; it’s about keeping a Tory government in power for the next 20 years.

Just think about that for a moment: A Tory government for the next TWENTY years!!? 

Stay woke, people!

Mosul: How Do Terrorists Get Their Hands On Chemical Weapons and Why is No-one Concerned?

5 Mar
mg

A representation of the effects of Chlorine gas.

In February 2017, the Daily Star reported the suspected assassination of Abu Yaha al-Iraq, socalled “engineer” behind ISIS’s stash of horrifying Chlorine bombs.

It is since January however, that the UN and other sources have been reporting on the potential for ISIS/ Daesh to obtain and make use of chemical weapons – which, if it were to proven – would represent a clear breach of international law and thus a war crime.

Again, in February, it was reported that the Pentagon also alleges the manufacture of ‘improvised’ chemical weapons. Contradicting this, in 2015, it was reported – again, by the Pentagon – that ISIS was not and could not manufacture such weapons.

In the last few days however, we have had new reports from the International Red Cross of multiple hospital admissions of civilians, including several children, suffering from what appear to be symptoms indicating exposure to these kinds of chemical weapons.

If reports are true, then who is supplying ISIS with the necessary material and equipment to manufacture them and why?

How is ISIS obtaining the expertise to manufacture them?

If neither of these, and ISIS has simply ‘come by’ a stockpile of already manufactured chemical weapons, from who or where did they obtain them and what were they doing in Mosul anyway?

It’s pretty hard to believe that ISIS is capable of or has the expertise to manufacture these chemical weapons on its own; so, one must logically assume that someone or a foreign state is supplying them.

As Michael Springmann recently told Press TV, the manufacture of the elements needed to create a chemical weapon, like Chlorine gas, “is something that is not [what] you can make [it] in your bathtub at home.”

Could it by that the US or another Western government is supplying ISIS with the materials and equipment to create Chlorine gas, or the weapons themselves?

We already know from the Washington Post reported in September 2016, that the Saudi-led coalition have been using White Phosphorus in Yemen, which has been confirmed was supplied to it by the United States.

We also know that Western governments, including the United States, are, and have been, funding Islamist militants, including ISIS, since the Russian invasion of Afghanistan in the 80’s.

Why is no one asking these very pertinent questions; and why does no one seem at all concerned to want to to find out the answer and bring those responsible before the international criminal court?

UK Foreign Policy: Lessons From Libya, Illegal Wars, Profit, and the Refugee Crisis

6 Jan

Boat Refugees.jpg

I made the following comments on another platform, after reading ‘Libya: Examination of intervention and Collapse and the UK’s Future Policy Options’; a report published by the House of Commons FCO Committee on the 06 September, 2016.

My comments are based on snippets of text, taken directly from the report, as observed by the Committee, or evidence and opinion given, by experts and Members of Parliament to the Committee.

The report states that the UK government spent in excess of £320m on bombing Libya, but only £25m on reconstruction programmes… most of which, went to foreign companies in the plundering of its natural wealth and subsequent reconstruction.

Dr. Liam Fox, MP, and former Defence Secretary, by his omission to answer (before committee) point 3, of the ‘Failure Strategy’, admitted destabilising Libya was an ‘engineered’ outcome, by various Western governments, including the UK.

(Note: this is the very same Liam Fox, who has consistently voted against Human Rights; strongly supported the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as being forced to repay approximately £40,000 in wrongfully claimed parliamentary expenses of taxpayers money. He has previously stated, “Israel’s enemies are our enemies and this is a battle in which we all stand together or we will all fall divided”).

Before the UK and coalition invasion, Libya had some £30bn in unused weapons; which, after Western efforts to oust Gaddafi, ‘fell’ into hands of militias, including Boko Haram.

As a direct consequence of the invasion, the UK government and its international partners, created the possibility for increased migration of refugees from Libya and surrounding countries in Western-caused conflict, poverty and displacement.

This is documented as fact in both the report and many other reports by world governments and international NGOs.

Yes, it is entirely true; our governments created the migrant and refugee crisis in Europe.
Now we have Baroness Anelay, former Minister of State in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office – who, for the record, has a relatively untarnished record – told the committee, that the UK did not support sea rescue missions of migrants, because of ‘pull factor.’

Translation: They can drown, because if we let more of them come, they will keep coming!

(No mention or acknowledgement that we allowed our governments to create this situation).

 

Here’s what Baroness Anelay meant by not wishing to support sea rescues:

British warship sent to Libya to target people-smugglers: Deployment of HMS Diamond part of EU crackdown, as… http://bit.ly/2bMRww8

 

Here’s Dr. Liam Fox, MP, giving evidence (and telling outright LIES) to the Committee: http://parliamentlive.tv/Event/Index/5c9e78c8-5c3f-4511-ab58-e9b068d6906a

 

And here’s Cameron congratulating the Libyan people (and himself) in the overthrow of the government: https://video.twimg.com/ext_tw_video/777780997987393536/pu/vid/1280×720/QuLVu-9z6esf3EFY.mp4

 

Hold on!

Now we have Cameron suggesting the UK’s involvement would ‘stabilise’ Libya: https://archive.fo/bC3DR

 

For the record, and so that you are in no doubt, in 2014, the UK Parliament voted against Syria. Cameron ignored the vote and misused the royal prerogative, without any consultation of parliament to send UK troops to provide what he later described – but only after he was found out, that is – ‘logistical support’ for the Americans.

Cameron was found out in early 2015 and wriggled out of it by saying that there were no boots on the ground, so, technically, he hadn’t broken parliamentary rules.

Yeah, right!

In come his cronies, to grease the wheels of and start the propaganda machine to work in order to engineer ‘boots on the ground’ via a second vote.

Yes, it worked… Cameron spun it and got the second vote to invade Syria!

Only recently I read in the Guardian, that a Syrian activist has had her passport withdrawn (by UK authorities) at the request of Assad’s government; and yet, we (the UK) are supposed to be at war with Assad.

As with Syria, the UK and other Western governments, including France and the US, wanted regime change in Libya, just like Afghanistan and Iraq.

The result?

Engineered turmoil, people displacement, sectarianism, poverty, inequality, destruction of infrastructure, mass murder, and the EU’s current migrant crisis!

Why, you may ask?

The answer is always the same: power, profit, and control!

Syria and Libya are your legacy, David Cameron.

Like Blair in Iraq and Afghanistan; you should be sent to the international criminal courts, for war crimes and crimes against humanity!

And now, the same Western governments, are playing the blame game with Russia and Assad, whilst people are bombed out of their homes, to death, or to flood European borders.

The struggle for world peace and the security of the Middle East is far from over; it is part of a wider plan!

 Open your eyes!
