Britain is now harbouring a menacing enemy within

leading article, Daily Express, 11 March 2009

For British troops returning home after risking their lives in the cause of bringing democracy to Iraq and Afghanistan to face abuse from Islamic demonstrators in Luton is a sickening development.

The men of the Royal Anglian Regiment kept their cool in the face of demonstrators who branded them “cowards, killers and extremists”. […]

British Army commanders have spoken of finding themselves fighting British Muslims in Afghanistan – a “mini civil war”, one called it. On current trends, that civil war will soon be waged on the home front, too. […]

Most British Muslims mean their non-Muslim neighbours no harm. But it is becoming increasingly clear that a substantial number are determined to wage a jihad against this nation.

Killing is a crime – Dyeing [sic] is not : Defend the right to speak out for Palestine

Join our protest
2 p.m. Thursday March 12 at the City of London Magistrates Court
1 Queen Victoria Street, London, EC4N 4XY

Naomi Wimborne-Idrissi, 56, was arrested on 29 June 2008 at a pro-Israeli parade through central London. Wearing a T-shirt bearing the slogan, “Palestinian blood on Israeli hands,” she stood on the pavement as the parade moved along the Haymarket, holding up her hands dyed red with food colouring.

Within minutes she was attacked by three separate Israel supporters, one of whom threatened to slit her throat. She was arrested without explanation, searched and prevented from speaking to anyone other than the police. She was held for four hours in a cell at Charing Cross police station, photographed, finger-printed and DNA tested. Eventually she was charged with “causing harassment, alarm and distress.”

“This would have been laughable if it were not such as serious breach of a citizen’s right to free speech,” she said. “The people on the parade were celebrating 60 years of an Israeli state which is responsible for thousands of Palestinian deaths and persists in denying Palestinians the most basic human rights. Since our government fails to call Israel to account for its repeated breaches of international law, including its illegal occupation of Palestinian land conquered in 1967, I felt morally obliged to expose the truth. It cannot be right for the law to prevent this and I will be contesting the charge.”

Investigative reporter Seymour Hersh describes ‘executive assassination ring’ By Eric Black

Wed, Mar 11 2009 11:17 am

At a “Great Conversations” event at the University of Minnesota last night, legendary investigative reporter Seymour Hersh may have made a little more news than he intended by talking about new alleged instances of domestic spying by the CIA, and about an ongoing covert military operation that he called an “executive assassination ring.”

Hersh spoke with great confidence about these findings from his current reporting, which he hasn’t written about yet.

In an email exchange afterward, Hersh said that his statements were “an honest response to a question” from the event’s moderator, U of M Political Scientist Larry Jacobs and “not something I wanted to dwell about in public.”


“Right now, today, there was a story in the New York Times that if you read it carefully mentioned something known as the Joint Special Operations Command — JSOC it’s called. It is a special wing of our special operations community that is set up independently. They do not report to anybody, except in the Bush-Cheney days, they reported directly to the Cheney office. They did not report to the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff or to Mr. [Robert] Gates, the secretary of defense. They reported directly to him. …

“Congress has no oversight of it. It’s an executive assassination ring essentially, and it’s been going on and on and on. Just today in the Times there was a story that its leaders, a three star admiral named [William H.] McRaven, ordered a stop to it because there were so many collateral deaths.

“Under President Bush’s authority, they’ve been going into countries, not talking to the ambassador or the CIA station chief, and finding people on a list and executing them and leaving. That’s been going on, in the name of all of us.

Ronald Cotton spent 11 years in prison because Jennifer Thompson provided eye witness testimony that he was the person who raped her. On March 9, National Public Radio revisited the story.

It turned out that Thompson was completely wrong, DNA evidence indicated that it was not Cotton but another man who had bragged about the rape.

Thompson asked Cotton for forgiveness, and he gave it. The two became friends and have collaborated on a book. On NPR Thompson said that eye witness testimony is incorrect 70 percent of the time.

I am familiar with psychological studies that conclude that eye witness accounts are wrong half of the time. That is enough to discredit eye witness testimony as evidence; yet, police and juries always bank on it.

Poll: Does “Free Energy” Exist? By Steve Windisch

There are many controversial alternative energy technologies out there today that have been touted as being direct and highly competitive replacements to coal and oil. Many are listed in the series of articles “Free Energy and the Open Source Energy Movement” (Parts 1-4), and hundreds of other places around the Internet… These describe devices that produce no pollution, require no fuel, and are safe. The are not really “free”, in that they produce “cheap” energy (and of course the devices will not be given away). They are also not “free” in that many concerned and educated people all over the world believe they are being “held captive”; in that these technologies important to us all have been hidden and suppressed for many years… Due in varying degrees to the below factors of:

> The Trillions in easy profits from fossil fuels (and the hierarchical monopoly-like control therein from having a society based on “scarcity”). When “following the money” and using the lessons of History, human nature, and group psychology; one could predict with near 100% accuracy that suppressions and worse would happen to defend the current system against competing energy sources that would greatly change society.
