Can there be any doubt who the real terrorists are? US definition fits perfectly :: www.uruknet.info :: informazione dall'Iraq occupato :: news from occupied Iraq :: - it: "December 27, 2008

The patience of all decent men must surely be exhausted.

Today’s slaughter of innocents in Gaza, with at least 230 reported killed in raids on 'Hamas terror operatives' (as the Israeli military put it), amounted to 'a mass execution', said Hamas.

Can there now be any doubt who the real terrorists are?

The killing spree couldn’t have happened without the tacit approval of America, Britain and the EU. The political pea-brains that direct the pro-Israel western alliance were partying, gorging themselves on Christmas fare or binge-shopping while this massacre of hungry women and children and their despairing menfolk in Gaza was being planned and executed.

According to the US's own definition of terrorism Israel is squarely in the frame. Under Section 3 of Executive Order 13224 'Blocking Property and prohibiting Transactions with Persons who commit, threaten to commit, or support Terrorism', the term 'terrorism' means an activity that…

(i) involves a violent act or an act dangerous to human life, property, or infrastructure; and
(ii) appears to be intended
  • to intimidate or coerce a civilian population;
  • to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or

  • to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, kidnapping, or hostage-taking.

The transmission is a mess; the muffler's clunking; smoke's seeping out of the dashboard; and you've only had it a week. You took it, grudgingly, as a replacement for that beat-up old Camry that only lasted two months, but the salesman assured you it was a winner. No wonder you're driving onto the lot right now. Before you can even complain, the same salesman's there. He's firm. It's not his fault. You must have done something. Nonetheless, he's ready to offer you a great deal. For an extra 2,000 bucks, you can have the rusted-out Honda Prelude right behind him, the one that, as a matter of fact, has just burst into flames -- and, he assures you, it's a dandy. It may not look so great today, what with the smoking hood and all, but it's a vehicle for the ages.
    Would you buy a used car from this man? (Hint…

    As Easter was
    celebrated in the US and UK with, for believers, the
    message of hope, Fallujah, the region and much of
    the country is again under siege, not this time by
    US mass murderers, but by the US proxy government’s
    militias armed with US delivered weapons. In 2003, a
    month into the invasion, Easter Day fell on the same
    day as this year, 20th April, as Iraqis of all
    denominations and none, died were incarcerated,
    tortured, found with their heads drilled, or no
    heads, thrown on garbage piles. Easter Day
