the sky is falling .....

the sky is falling .....

The big powers are moving tentatively towards global de-nuclearisation, taking small but significant steps to show they do want everyone to pitch in. Obama's decision to shelve the European defence missile programme shows serious intent, so too Gordon Brown's announcement that Britain would cut down from four to three its Trident missile-carrying submarines.

There was a moment this spring, albeit fleeting, when Rose Gottemoeller, an assistant secretary of state and Washington's chief nuclear arms negotiator, asked Israel to sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, thus breaking the 40-year-old silence and US complicity in its accumulated, un-inspected arsenal. Her reasonable appeal provoked apoplexy in a nation that assumes special, indeed exceptional, treatment.

In the 1960s, Israel successfully hid its weapons from US inspectors. In 1986, Israeli nuclear technical assistant Mordechai Vanunu revealed information about the concealed stockpiles and has been punished ever since. Hubristic Israel no longer cares to deny that it has hundreds of atom and hydrogen bombs and devastating biological "tools". Netanyahu has been warning he will destroy the Iranian sites if his country feels the danger is real. Now he has just what he wanted - another crisis in the Middle East, to keep up the idea of plucky, vulnerable, endangered little Israel.

Alarmingly, even the liberal Israeli newspaper Ha'aretz is on side. History has made too many Israelis fear all humanity in perpetuity and that fear brings out the worst in that nation. It has predictably rejected the long, sober, unbiased UN report on the last assault on Gaza chaired by Richard Goldstone. He accused Hamas of crimes against Jewish civilians and charged Israel with grave crimes, the breaking of the Geneva convention, punishing and terrorising unarmed civilians.

I have some images of these victims sent to me by a Jewish pro-Palestinian activist. Children turned to ash, blistered mothers weeping, and on and on. There still is no respite for the hungry and dying in Gaza. If Israel can mete out such treatment and not be called to account, just think what the state feels entitled to do to Iran.

The Israeli human rights activist Gideon Spiro bravely asks that his country be subject to the same rules as Iran and all others in the Middle East: "Rein in Israel, compel it to accept a regime of nuclear disarmament and oblige it to open all nuclear, biological and chemical facilities and missile sites to international inspection." The US has leverage because it maintains and funds Israel. If Obama shies away from this, there can be no moral justification to go for Iran or North Korea or any other rogue state. And the leader whose election and dreams gave hope to millions thereby hastens the end of the world.

History repeats and still we never learn.

Has the US/Zionist alliance already gone too far?  Will the reduction and perhaps removal of nuclear warheads simply be a not too sleazy excuse for an unprovoked attack on yet another sovereign nation – Iran? After all it only takes a couple of Nukes each for Armageddon.

 

With decades of denial the Zionist occupiers of Palestine accidentally admitted that they had hundreds of them – and they only revealed that when they complained that the home-made rockets of the Palestine resistance may hit their storage facilities!

 

And with all the US/Zionist “Iraq type” propaganda about WMD’s to excuse the murder of hundreds of thousands of innocent people – and the showcase hanging of their ally Saddam Hussein – on top of the reported 500,000 they had starved to death – they have perpetrated one of the most heinous crimes in modern world history.  And counting?

 

Good faith is not in the Jewish Torah and the Zionists and all Jews that follow or support

them have consistently ignored or abused even the slightest criticism of their radical behavior now, and for centuries past.

 

And yet Jeffrey Goldberg wrote in the Atlantic on March 31, 2009 that “Netanyahu” [said] to Obama: Stop Iran – Or I will”.  And Golda Meir’s threat that if Israel goes down, we will take the rest of the world with us?  And of course the Jewish Minister for “War” Lieberman who wanted to bomb the Egyptian Aswan damn which would kill tome 80 million people.  As John Richardson once wrote: fascism is fascism no matter who practices it.

 

The much vaunted Jewish invented Iranian phrase of “We will wipe Judea off the map” was in fact made by one of their historic conquerors -  Emperor Hadrian - in 135 -  lots of centuries ago. And History records Hadrian as a productive Emperor to his people and their concquests.

 

So you have Netanyahu, a person educated in the U.S. who believes that he has the power to do anything he likes – including bombing all peaceful nations in the Middle East.  And, more importantly, to the latest suggestion of cutting back nuclear weapons and perhaps destroying them – we have been told nothing of the Zionist nuclear plans and even if they said they would agree – who would hold them responsible – who would even believe them – after 60 years of murder and lies?

 

Iran’s President is a gutsy little fellow who has survived every patently obvious attempts by the US/Zionist to dislodge him – even to the point of organizing so-called mass demonstrations.  He has been constantly mis-quoted by the Jewish world-wide Medias as to his logical and truthful opinion of the illegal take-over of Palestine by force of arms while hypocritically practicing apartheid and fascism.  And he is right!

 

As is Libya’s Gaddafi – selected vetoes do not a democracy make.

 

Well might Howard say that the UN is a useless body – after all his “new order” under the Bush regime helped to make it so.

God bless Australia.  NE OUBLIE.

 

               

 

Think, reason and be logical.

World peace - how many times have we heard that statement from the warmongers?

Recently my Wife and I watched a Canadian movie concerning WW 1.  The carnage was displayed clearly from many original films. I believe that this war was the first which ignored the “face off” of the armies and which actually attacked the civilians of any country in which their conflict was to be played out.

What began with the crazy behavior of a Serbian in “making a statement” to murder two examples of the Austrian/Hungarian Empire who were Archduke Ferdinand and his wife? I believe that he had no idea of what he had done? Just another student?

These random bullets caused the death not only of those decent and innocent people, but the normal unwritten code of arms and the accepted conduct of opposing armies. Check the loss of humanity we have all suffered since that deviation from common sense and control of pride. And for what?

The people who benefit from war spend some of their ill-gotten gains by trying to immortalize those who have died in the “service of their country”.

Does that mean that these men and women served, and died, and were crippled in a conflict which never really endangered the existence of their society? And should never have happened?

And the examples of today are that weapons of war have a more important “trade” value than the normal human function of depending on the assets of their own environment and should indicate that the US/Israel attacks on the contented people of Palestine is a return to the miseries of the early 20th century.

If we ignore the existence of even one fascist situation – we should really look back to the history of our relatives who have served – and died, and ask why?

Who controls technology?  Joe Hockey says it protects privacy! Fair dinkum.

God Bless Australia.  NE OUBLIE.

 

 

 

 

 

 

a tear in honour of our good friend ernest...

 

 

In this old interview, the game of nuclear weapons is exposed by our famous accidental agent, Vanunu... Here we also remember our friend in peace — world peace — Ernest William, an old foggy like us here with a mind of what we should all have: young, alert, sharp, inquisitive and true... NE OUBLIE. 


Silvia Cattori: What states cooperated with Israel?

Mordechai Vanunu: Israel helped France and Great Britain in their campaign against Egypt in 1956. After the operation of Suez, France and Great Britain began cooperating with the Israeli nuclear program as a way to reciprocate the support that Israel had given them during that war.

Silvia Cattori: Didn’t South Africa help Israel until 1991?

Mordechai Vanunu: It was precisely in South Africa, in the desert, that Israel carried out its nuclear tests…

Silvia Cattori: It seems that in the 1960s, President Kennedy asked that inspections be carried out in Dimona, Israel. Do you see any links between that request and his assassination?

Mordechai Vanunu: In believe that, at that time, the United States opposed the Israeli nuclear program. Kennedy tried to stop Israel but he was assassinated before he could do it. For me, his assassination had to do with the proliferation of nuclear weapons in Israel and in other countries. Those who killed him were in favour of nuclear proliferation. Thanks to his death, proliferation continued. In fact, presidents Johnson and Nixon, who succeeded Kennedy, saw no inconvenience with that. They let Israel act. We can simply see that there was a change in that direction after Kennedy’s assassination…

Silvia Cattori: Your denunciation did not make Israel change its secrecy around the matter. Israel managed to have all the big power not to act against it. Was Israel’s strategy, contrary to transparency, effective?

Mordechai Vanunu: Yes, we have to admit it. Israel is a case that has to be studied. How can a small country defy the whole world and continue with an aggressive policy, and not worry about anyone else? Yes, Israelis were able to do it then. But, today the world has changed. The Cold War is over. Communism was defeated. The world marches toward peace. We can now see that nuclear weapons will not help Israel. Now that Israel has to show that it wants peace and how to attain it, what is the use of nuclear weapons? Israel’s nuclear policy was possible in the context of the Cold War. Today we have to make Israel to adopt a new policy, showing the world that it wants peace and that it recognizes that it does not need nuclear weapons.

Silvia Cattori: In the 1950s, Israel already had significant armaments. What reason did it have then to acquire the nuclear weapon?

Mordechai Vanunu: A small country such as Israel does not have any valid reason to have such an enormous amount of atomic weapons. It is as though Israel had gone into a frenzy over its nuclear weapons program. It is impossible to use a nuclear weapon in the region! If a nuclear weapon were used against Syria, Egypt or Jordan, the radioactive effects would also hurt Israel. To this day, Israelis have not been able to discuss the issue among them. However, it is a problem that worries everyone in the world. We are waiting for Israel’s answer.

Silvia Cattori: For Israel, isn’t it rather a weapon that allows it to maintain its status quo, as an instrument for political blackmail, to be able to discuss in equal terms with the big powers – starting with the United States – and not to concede anything to the Arabs, that Israel has plundered and who are weak in the military field?

 

Mordechai Vanunu: That is right. Israel uses the power of its weapons to impose its policies. Israel has a lot of power; it crushes with arrogance all its neighbours. Not even the United States can tell Israel what to do! Europe is now seeing the magnitude of Israel’s power. Without using the atomic bomb and not even threatening to use the nuclear weapon, Israelis can impose their power, they can do as they please. They can build a wall; they can build colonies in Palestine… No one can tell them they cannot do it because they are extremely powerfu

. This is the result of their political blackmail. They can use their nuclear weapons against any country that tries to stop their aggressive policy against the Palestinians. That is the current situation. The whole world knows it. And there is another reason why the United States and Europe do not do anything. They know the magnitude of Israel’s power. Thus, the best way to oppose Israel is making the world aware of the truth and to study what is happening in that country with regard to atomic weapons until they give it up.

Silvia Cattori: Did Israel consider the possibility of using the nuclear weapon against its Arab neighbours in 1973?

Mordechai Vanunu: Yes. In 1973 Israel was ready to use atomic bombs against Syria… and Egypt.

Silvia Cattori: You suffered a lot for having revealed a secret of state. Finally… what was the result?

Mordechai Vanunu: First, the world now has evidence that Israel has atomic weapons. From now on, no one can ignore the truth as to the Israeli nuclear program. After that, Israel was prevented from resorting to that kind of weapons. Another result is that the world became aware of what this small Jewish state was secretly doing. And the world also knew about the lies and misinformation upon which this state lies. Knowing that a small country like Israel was able to manufacture 200 atomic bombs made the world aware of its behaviour. The fear that another small country could do the same made the world think about ways to stop nuclear proliferation and to prevent Israel from helping other countries to use those weapons in the future. When the world became aware of what Israel was secretly doing, the fear of nuclear proliferation increased. The world became aware of Israel’s power and began to pressure this country to reach peace with the Palestinians and the Arab world. Israel no longer had a reason to affirm that it feared its Arab neighbours as it had, since the 1950s, plenty of weapons to guarantee its own security.

Silvia Cattori: Why does Israel still chase you?

Mordechai Vanunu: What I did was very harmful for all of Israel’s political moves! They were forced to change their plans. Israel’s secret nuclear policy was created by Shimon Peres. And that policy of secretly manufacturing nuclear weapons was destroyed! After that denunciation, Israel had to change its direction and to make new plans. What we see today is a consequence of what I did. They had to invent other types of weapons. Now, they are building their wall, check points, settlements and they managed to make the Jewish society a more religious one, more nationalist and more racist instead of taking another path, instead of understanding that the only possible solution is peace, instead of recognizing that the Palestinians have the same rights and instead of putting an end to the conflict. What Israel wants is to continue building its wall and its settlements!

Silvia Cattori: So, what you did was a great deed!

Mordecha Vanunu: As a human being, I did something for the security and respect of humankind. All countries have to respect us, everyone of us!, as human beings, no matter what our religion might be, whether we are Jews, Christians, Muslims or Buddhists… Israel has a big problem: it is a country that does not respect human beings. The result is devastating for Israel’s image. The state of Israel is far from being a democracy. The Jewish state is racist. The whole world should know that Israel practices a policy of apartheid. If you are a Jew, you can do whatever you want and go wherever you want. If you are not a Jew, you have no rights. That racism is the real problem that Israel faces. Israel is completely unable to prove that it is a democracy. No one can accept that racist state, neither the United States nor Europe. In any case, they could accept Israel’s nuclear weapons but… how can they justify this state of fascist apartheid?

Silvia Cattori: It looks like you refuse to recognize the legitimacy of that State

Mordechai Vanunu: Of course. That is what I said when I was released from jail: we cannot accept this Jewish state. The Israeli Jewish state is the opposite of a democracy. We need a state for all its citizens, regardless of their religious beliefs. The solution is a sole state for all citizens of all religions, as it is in democracies like France or Switzerland, and not only a state for Jews. A Jewish state has absolutely no reason to exist. Jews do not need a fundamentalist regime like that of Iran. People need a real democracy that respects human beings. Today we have two fundamentalist regimes in the Middle East: Iran and Israel. But, Israel is far more fundamentalist than Iran!

Silvia Cattori: Then for you, Israel is a bigger threat than Iran?

Mordechai Vanunu: Of course it is. We all know how much the Israelis have been making the Palestinian people suffer for more than 50 years! It is about time that the world pays attention to the Palestinian Holocaust. The Palestinians have suffered a lot, for a long time, because of that oppression! The Jews do not respect them and not even consider them as human beings. They do not recognize any of their rights and still chase them, putting their lives in danger and, consequently, their future too.

Silvia Cattori: What would you say to my country, Switzerland, the repository of the Geneva Conventions?

Mordechai Vanunu: Switzerland should clearly and loudly condemn the racist policy of Israel, that is, all the violations of the Palestinians’ rights, let them be Muslims or Christians. All countries must demand that Israel respect non-Jewish people as human beings. In fact, I do not have the right to speak with you; I am not authorized to speak to foreigners. Doing it in spite of the ban is a risk that I am taking. Israel used the compensations for the holocaust to build weapons, to destroy houses and Palestinian assets. I wish your country could grant me a passport and help me out of Israel. Life is very tough here. If you are a Jew, there is no problem. If not, or if you cease to be one, you are treated with no respect.

Gus believes that "white" Russians in a conspiracy with the right wing of America might have been involved in Kennedy's assassination. Both did not want the rapprochement between the USA and Russia...

the jewish hypocrites...

On 6 February 2018, Israel bombed a Syrian Military Research Centre at Jamraya near Damascus [1]. The justification the Israeli army used for this operation: the important aim of destroying a centre of research on chemical weapons. This rhetoric has been rejected by the US Defense Secretary, General Jim Mattis, who declared to a journalist from Newsweek that there was absolutely no evidence that Syria had ever used chemical weapons [2]. In actual fact, the centre at Jamaraya was home to Iranian technicians who had been tasked with adapting methods of precision guidance for long range missiles.

Israel’s fear is that Iran might help Syria recover the Golan which, under international law, it (Israel) is occupying illegally. In any event, this is what we can conclude from the map published on 11 February in the evening by the Israeli army, later withdrawn by Tsahal. On this map, the Golan is described as a “disputed territory” and not an integral part of Israel.

From its base at Palmyre, Iran had probably sent a drone comparable to the US RQ-170 Sentinel above the occupied Golan. Tsahal had brought it down and had launched a vast operation aimed at destroying seven Iranian sites in Syria. An Israeli F-16 had been brought down by Syria.
