Obama~No More Nukes? Good Luck With That One

I watched this live and Obama said today in Germany he wants to “rid the world of nuclear weapons” a noble cause, but to Obama I would say this; Good luck with that one! The only way Israel will let go of it’s Nuclear Weapons and take it’s murdering finger off the button, is if the US pries Israel’s cold dead fingers off the big red button. Israel is a threat to world peace. Report below:

Obama wants world without nukes

STRASBOURG, France, April 3 (UPI) — U.S. President Barack Obama Friday in France pledged to work to create a world without nuclear weapons.

Addressing a crowd of roughly 3,000 students in Strasbourg, co-host of NATO’s 60th anniversary summit this weekend, Obama warned that “even with the Cold War now over, the spread of nuclear weapons, or the theft of nuclear material, could lead to the extermination of any city on the planet.”

Obama added he would, at an EU-U.S. summit Sunday in Prague, “lay out an agenda to seek … a world without nuclear weapons.”

The crowd at the sports hall in Strasbourg, made up of students mainly from Germany and France, erupted in cheers and long applause.

Obama’s comments came just two days after a meeting with Russian President Alexander Medvedev Wednesday in London; the leaders had announced plans to seek a deal aimed at reducing their Cold War-era nuclear arsenals.

Unexploded Bombs Still Threaten Gaza

Whitewashing IDF Atmosphere of Brutality

Israeli military police have closed an investigation into soldiers’ accounts of abuses committed in Gaza, saying they were based on hearsay.

An Israeli military college published the accounts, which included claims that soldiers fired on civilians and vandalised property.

The probe concluded that the stories were “purposely exaggerated”.

“The climate in general… I don’t know how to describe it…. the lives of Palestinians, let’s say, are much, much less important than the lives of our soldiers,” an infantry squad leader was quoted saying in reports carried in Israeli newspapers.

While academy director Dany Zamir told public radio that “[the testimonies] conveyed an atmosphere in which one feels entitled to use unrestricted force against Palestinians”.

Testimonies, which were given by combat pilots and infantry soldiers, also included allegations of unnecessary destruction of Palestinian property.

“We would throw everything out of the windows to make room and order. Everything… refrigerators, plates, furniture. The order was to throw all of the house’s contents outside,” a soldier said.

Heavy civilian casualties during the three-week operation which ended in the blockaded coastal strip on 18 January have provoked an international outcry.

Uh Oh, Another Crooked Israeli Deal for Weapons

Haaretz are reporting on this “interesting” arms deal Israel made with India in february. It seems that there is just a wee bit too much of “I’ll scratch your back, and you scratch mine”

Media allege corruption in massive Israel-India arms deal

Allegations of possible illegalities in a massive arms deal between Israel and India have surfaced over the weekend in the Indian media. The size of the deal between the Indian Ministry of Defense and Israel Aerospace Industries, estimated at $1.5 billion, had grown to allow for the payment of commissions, which is illegal in India, said the press there.

The deal in question, signed in late February between Israel Aerospace Industries and the Indian Defense Ministry, is for the delivery of 2,000 Barak Mark VIII missiles, which were originally designed as sea-based weapons.

According to the deal, a third of the value of the deal will be spent in India, where the IAI will make offset purchases from Tata, a local consortium.

UPDATE it now appears that there may be in inquiry as some in India are calling for an investigation. Israel’s woes are never ending, ever the “victim” trouble is they create their own problems, will they ever learn?

“Suspend defence deal with Israel”
NEW DELHI: The Communist Party of India (Marxist) on Saturday demanded that the United Progressive Alliance government forthwith suspend the air defence missile deal it had struck with Israel and order a CBI probe into the circumstances leading to the purchase and the alleged kickbacks involved in it.

US or Israel~Sudan Airstrike Suspicious

HAMAS deny any link to so called weapons convoy in Sudan. Additionally, (this is interesting) HAMAS claim “if” there was an airstrike in Sudan, it was done to pressure Sudan over Middle East Conflict. Hmmmmmm…..

HAMAS Denies Link to Sudan Arms Convoy

Palestinian Islamic Hamas movement on Saturday denied any link to a weapon convoy which was said to be en route to the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip but was bombed in Sudan.

“It is ironic to link this convoy with Hamas though we’re still unsure if there was a convoy bombed by airplanes,” said Salah al- Bardaweel, a Hamas lawmaker in the Gaza Strip.

It was reported that American or Israeli fighter jets struck at an arms convoy in a remote area in Sudan in late January, and the weapons were supposed to be transported to the Gaza Strip via Egyptian territories.

“If this airstrike is true, it would be a political act by Israel and the U.S. aiming at putting pressure on Sudan,” al- Bardaweel added.

The United States has conducted an airstrike against arms smugglers last January, killing scores of people, the Paris-based Sudantribune website reported on Wednesday.

Sudanese State Minister for Highways, Mabrouk Mubarak Saleem, was quoted as saying that a “major power bombed small trucks carrying arms, burring all of them.”

Oliphant Cartoon~False Anti-Semitism Fest

The following post is a MUST READ from Desertpeace

The following was written by my Associate, David Baldinger. As an artist he is most interested in this particular issue.

Oliphant Channels Robert Minor

Pat Oliphant, syndicated editorial cartoonist, created a cartoon the other day that has Zionists everywhere screaming their usual accusations of ‘anti-Semitism’. Bravo, Pat, for being one of the few main stream media cartoonists to make a critical statement about the Israeli government’s over kill in Gaza. Anyone who dares criticize Israel is automatically labeled an anti-Semite so the charge has little meaning any longer.

I am surprised that no one has picked up on Oliphant’s reference to the great early 20th Century Communist cartoonist, Robert Minor (1884 – 1952). The Oliphant headless soldier is obviously not ‘NAZI’ imagery but that of the mindless soldier that Robert Minor called, ‘the perfect soldier’. This soldier dates from World War 1 USA and not NAZI era Germany.
