Lies, Damned Lies, and Wikipedia

How many times have you used Wikipedia when trying to find out the basic facts surrounding an unfamiliar event or topic? How many times has Wikipedia been your first port of call? When one seeks information online relating to a divisive, confusing, or hotly debated topic, nine times out of ten the first port of call will be a search engine, most likely Google. Resultingly (as we will see), the online encyclopedia ‘Wikipedia‘, now a household name, has become the chief first source of information for a huge majority of people.

Israel’s Man in Venezuela: Henrique Capriles Radonski

Originally posted January 2013.

Henrique Capriles Radonski – leader of the Venezuelan opposition – vows to downgrade ties with Iran and cut subsidised oil to Cuba and Nicaragua, should he get into power. What is more, his coalition has links to Israel, and both of his parents are Jewish, though he claims to be a ‘fervent Catholic’.

Qassem Suleimani says disarming Gaza resistance is wrong

by Arash Karami, Al-Monitor

The head of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Quds Force, Commander Qassem Suleimani, issued a rare public statement regarding the war in Gaza and his support for Palestinians fighting against Israeli forces. The dramatic, somewhat poetic message was originally picked up by Arabic-language TV station Al Mayadeen. Later, many Iranian news agencies and websites carried parts or the entire written message.

 The letter, which reflects a personal and emotional commitment to Palestine that Suleimani has not expressed before, demonstrates the growing attention paid to the war in Gaza by top Iranian officials, who have openly called for arming both Gaza and the West Bank.

“Palestine is a beating heart whose blood runs through the veins of mankind to present a new humanity at any time,” he wrote. “Palestine gifts welfare to the world. … It shakes the conscience and wakes nations from their deep sleep.

Zionist Media Domination: The Jewish Suicide Bomber That You Never Heard Of

In 1983 American police foiled a significant terror attack that most Americans to this day are utterly oblivious to. On October 18, 1983, a suicide bomber strapped with explosives was caught in the spectators’ gallery of the US House of Representatives, attempting to blow up the US Capitol.(1) The reason most Americans know nothing of this plot, is that the terrorist was a Jewish Israeli named ‘Israel Rabinowits’. The astounding ignorance of Americans is owing to the supreme control that Zionist Jews wield over the American press. Michael Collins Piper reports(1) that this event was mentioned

just once in The Washington Post – the so-called newspaper of record in the American capital – and only once, in passing, in The New York Times.

Torture in Palestine: a glimpse into Israel’s history of unrivalled cruelty

Recognition of ‘Israel’ is tantamount to approval of the crimes against humanity that forged its existence. Such recognition is absolutely inexcusable on any level, moral, legal, or otherwise.

Amnesty International has concluded that there is no nation on the face of the planet in which torture is as well-established and documented as in the case of the state of Israel(1). This, coming from an organisation not exactly renowned for its tenacity with respect to the Zionist entity’s crimes, is particularly telling. In addition to this the Zionist entity has a long history of refusing to investigate or even acknowledge the brutal torture that it visits upon its occupied, dispossessed, and terrorised victims.

The Visible Ghosts of Palestine

A walk through occupied Al Khalil (Hebron) offers a shocking and heartbreaking insight into the struggle of the oppressed souls of one of Palestine’s most important cities. Day by day, Al Khalil is becoming a ghost town as the indigenous Palestinians are forced out through a wickedly evil campaign of terrorism, intimidation, and oppression.

The Palestine Solidarity Movement: A Recipe for Kosher anti-Zionism

Originally posted June 2012.

British Palestine Solidarity outfit ‘Palestine Place’ provides a platform for anti-Syrian speakers, while ostracising and banning activists who choose to discuss topics designated as ‘no-go’ by Zionist ideology. This is symptomatic of a wider disease prevalent in the ‘Palestine Solidarity Movement’.

11 year old child detained and arrested in occupied Al-Khalil on the way to school

Al-Khalil, Palestine –  On Sunday October 26th at approximately 7:45 a.m., Israeli border police detained and arrested an 11 year old Palestinian boy in the Qitoun area of H2.

The Israeli soldier grabbed the young boy by wrapping his hand in the collar of his shirt, twisting his clothing tightly around the neck, despite the fact that the young Palestinian showed  no signs of resisting.

After several minutes of Palestinian adults pleading with the soldier to release his grip, the soldier finally responded and escorted him to the police station next to the Ibrahimi Mosque – without his parents being notified.
