Israel Ramps Up Support For Over 7 Syrian Rebel Factions In Desperate Bid to Expand Reach

Israel Ramps Up Support For Over 7 Syrian Rebel Factions In Desperate Bid to Expand Reach

 

 Special new report by Elliott Gabriel:
Israeli occupation forces are
frantically hoping to secure their grip on Syria's southern region
surrounding the illegally-occupied Golan Heights, in hopes to gain
leverage against what Israel fears is an increasing presence of fighters
aligned with Iran.

The Second Amendment Was Ratified to Preserve Slavery

The Second Amendment Was Ratified to Preserve Slavery

 

 

The real reason the Second Amendment was ratified, and why it says
“State” instead of “Country” (the Framers knew the difference – see the
10th Amendment), was to preserve the slave patrol militias in the
southern states, which was necessary to get Virginia’s vote.  Founders
Patrick Henry, George Mason, and James Madison were totally clear on
that . . . and we all should be too.



In the beginning, there were the militias. In the South, they were
also called the “slave patrols,” and they were regulated by the states.



In Georgia, for example, a generation before the American Revolution,
laws were passed in 1755 and 1757 that required all plantation owners
or their male white employees to be members of the Georgia Militia, and
for those armed militia members to make monthly inspections of the
quarters of all slaves in the state.  The law defined which counties had
which armed militias and even required armed militia members to keep a
keen eye out for slaves who may be planning uprisings.

East Ghouta: Selective Outrage Undermines Human Rights in Syria

 

 News stories are full of quotes painting the situation in East Ghouta as
nearly unprecedented in its horror: “hell on earth,” “never seen
anything like this,” “one of the worst attacks in Syrian history,” and
“flagrant war crime” on an “epic scale.”

The US is protecting ISIS to weaken rivals, expand US occupation of Syria

 

 In the wake of the routing of ISIS from Iraq and Syria, the core
justification for an ongoing US military presence in Syria is ensuring
that no post-mortem ISIS insurgency arises. Yet a closer look at the
history of US involvement shows that counterterrorism has been a lesser
concern relative to geopolitical and strategic goals.

 The killings are not only deadlier than in 1999. Such incidents occur
much more frequently. Mass killings involving more than four deaths take
place every 16 days in the US, 10 times more frequently than in the
period between 1982 and 2011, when the average time between mass
killings was 200 days.

 GILBERT MERCIER: We are reaching the seventh-year anniversary of the
tragic conflict in Syria, which seems to evolve and get more complex as
time goes on. If nothing else, with the recent downing of an Israeli F16
by the Syrian army of Bashar al-Assad, which was the first time an
Israeli jet was shot down for breaching Syrian air space, the conflict
could even grow, with sustained intrusions from Israeli military forces
in Syria and tit-for-tat retaliations against Israel by Hezbollah
opening a front between Israel and Lebanon.

#catalunyareferendum

Disproportionate use of police violence to stop the independence
referendum... Attacks on the rights to freedom of expression and
peaceful assembly of Catalan independence supporters… Excessive
pre-trial detention of Catalan leaders… All these have been highlighted
by Amnesty International in its annual report. The document paints a
grim picture of the state of human rights in the world. And Spain is no
exception. We speak with the director of the organization in Europe to
understand the gravity of the situation. We also bring you the latest on
the controversy surrounding en exhibit featuring Catalan leaders as
political prisoners, which was removed from an art festival in Madrid.

 Disgusting. First the UN brings cholera to Haiti, killing up to 30,000
people. Now Oxfam is charged with covering up prostitution & sex
abuse from its Haiti director. But Oxfam chief executive said he doesn't

launched from Eastern Ghouta in Damascus
countryside on the suburbs and neighborhoods of Damascus – and that was

been much the same for many years, ever since Takfiri terrorists took

 One can only imagine the outright hysteria if it were discovered today
that a Trump advisor, especially one who advocated “dirty tricks”
against Clinton, had been receiving suggestions from Vladimir Putin. But
this is literally what happened in Russia. In the 1996 Russian
presidential election, the US directly intervened to make sure "their
guy" -- Yeltsin -- won. Strobe Talbott, the main “Russia hand” to Bill
Clinton, has detailed the then-president’s words at the time. “I know
the Russian people have to pick a president,” Clinton told his close
advisor, “and I know that means we’ve got to stop short of giving a
nominating speech for the guy. But we’ve got to go all the way in
helping in every other respect.”

human rights and pie in the sky is offered in lieu of daily bread."
