LATIN MERCOSUR BLOC SUPPORTS ARGENTINA ON FALKLANDS http://www.namnewsnetwork.org/v2/read.php?id=162569
The Latin Mercosur market group presidential summit has unanimously supported Argentina’s claimed sovereignty rights over the Falklands/Malvinas Islands.It also strongly rejected “regrettable statements” from British Defence Secretary Liam Fox regarding the use of force.This was expressed in a statement issued at the Mercosur full members and associates meeting here yesterday. The members are Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay.
The summit is the first of two annual presidential summits when the rotating chair of the group was handed by Paraguay to Uruguay for the next six months. Argentina was represented by Foreign Affairs minister Hector Timerman since President Cristina Fernandez was absent on medical advice.“Mercosur full members and associates energetically reject the regrettable statements from British Minister of Defence regarding the deployment of combat aircraft and naval power in the Malvinas Islands zone” the statement said.

Iran says U.S. exploits Syria uprising to save IsraHell http://www.shoah.org.uk/2011/07/01/iran-says-u-s-exploits-syria-uprising-to-save-israhell/
The United States and its allies are exploiting popular protests in Syria to try to break an alliance between Damascus and Tehran against Israel, a senior Iranian official said on Wednesday.Regional heavyweight Saudi Arabia and the United States, which bases its Fifth Fleet in Bahrain, both fear Iran’s rising influence in the region since the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq, analysts say.Mehmanparast said Iran had no intention to adopt “hostile foreign policy” toward any regional country.“Boosting regional ties has always been a priority for Iran … any country … that blocks such convergence is moving in line with the Zionist regime’s interests,” Mehmanparast said, accusing Washington of creating discord among Muslims.

Syria has accused Israel of burying nuclear waste in the occupied Golan Heights, presumably in tunnels dug in Mount Hermon. Bassel Oudat reports from Damascus .In an annual report, "the Suffering of Syrian Citizens in the Golan", submitted to a UN commission investigating human rights abuses in the Palestinian territories, the Syrian Foreign Ministry has accused Israel of "the crime of burying nuclear, radioactive and poisonous waste in the Golan, exposing the population to the danger of grave illnesses."
The report also notes that the "living conditions of the Syrian inhabitants of the occupied Golan are deteriorating every day.Arab Knesset member Issam Makhoul has denounced the alleged Israeli disposal of nuclear waste in the Golan as a "crime against humanity", claiming that Israel is imperilling human, animal and plant life in the region
Israel reportedly sends message through Ankara following intelligence reports revealing unusual troop, missile movement, Kuwaiti paper reports.The (Israeli) government sent a message to Syrian President Bashar Assad in recent days, warning him that if he started a war with the Jewish state in order to divert attention from domestic problems, Israel will target him personally, Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Jarida reported on Tuesday.
"The personal warning was sent through Turkey following intelligence reports of unusual Syrian troop movements, including the moving of long-range ballistic missiles that could be used to target Israel''"This sort of provocation is consistent with Assad’s previous behavior, in which he has tried to divert from domestic problems by getting various segments of Syria’s population riled up against Israel."

Arab Spring Refugees: The Cost of “Democracy Promotion” http://thepassionateattachment.com/2011/06/30/arab-spring-refugees-the-cost-of-democracy-promotion/
Jo Coghlan, an Australian expert on refugees, notes another perfectly predictable consequence of America’s Israeli-induced “democracy promotion” in the Middle East:As a result of the uprisings occurring in the Middle East, large populations of internally displaced persons (IDP’s) have been created inside of those countries, as well as great numbers of refugees fleeing to bordering countries. This has consequences for a region with already existing refugee populations, notably the more than one million Iraqi refugees that have settled in Syria since 2006.
The possibility of increased large-scale refugee movement from Libya and Syria will cause a devastating humanitarian crisis and may further destabilize the region. The United Nations is already warning of an aid crisis with significant food and medicine shortages reporting in the region.

The Americans are trying to further expand their network of secret agents and infamous BlackWater mercenaries on Pakistani soil. A leading Pakistani daily, the Nation, said that “We must really worry about the US plan.”The daily mentioned a recent report that Islamabad has pledged to issue three dozen new visas to CIA operatives and said there are no two opinions on the fact that these agents have no purpose whatsoever to operate inside Pakistan.
The daily mentioned the episode of the undercover CIA agent Raymond Davis, who had killed two Pakistanis in the city of Lahore in February, show they constitute a threat to the security of the country.The Nation said “Indeed, apart from the Davis incident, newspapers are filled with incidents of the American sleuths breaking the law of the land and even carrying out activities detrimental to our national interests.”
The newspaper said that Pakistan’s sovereignty will remain vulnerable to violations until one American spy continues to operate on our soil.It demanded “We should boot them out as quickly as we can”.The daily said time has now come to tell the US to mind its own business and refrain from poking its nose into Pakistan’s internal affairs.

Former Saudi intelligence chief and ambassador to the United States Turki al-Faisal warned NATO that if Iran builds nuclear weapons, his country will too. Prince Turki al-Faisal, a former Saudi intelligence chief and ambassador to Washington, warned senior Nato military officials that the existence of such a device "would compel Saudi Arabia … to pursue policies which could lead to untold and possibly dramatic consequences".He did not state explicitly what these policies would be, but a senior official in Riyadh who is close to the prince said yesterday his message was clear.
"We cannot live in a situation where Iran has nuclear weapons and we don't.It's as simple as that," the official said. "If Iran develops a nuclear weapon, that will be unacceptable to us and we will have to follow suit."Officials in Riyadh said that Saudi Arabia would reluctantly push ahead with its own civilian nuclear programme. Peaceful use of nuclear power, Turki said, was the right of all nations.
Turki was speaking earlier this month at an unpublicised meeting at RAF Molesworth, the airbase in Cambridgeshire used by Nato as a centre for gathering and collating intelligence on the Middle East and the Mediterranean.According to a transcript of his speech obtained by the Guardian, Turki told his audience that Iran was a "paper tiger with steel claws" that was "meddling and destabilising" across the region.
Funny how the Saudis seem a lot more concerned about the prospect of an Iranian nuclear weapon than they are about an Israeli one.How's that nuclear disarmament going Barack? (ZIONIST ISRAELI AUTHORS COMMENTS LOOK)

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad strongly criticized the US and the Zionist regime of Israel for their expansionist policies, and blamed Washington and Tel Aviv for the existing problems of human community. "The most problems humanity suffers from are the result of the expansionist and non-divine rule of the United States and its evil hanger-on, the Zionist regime [of Israel]," Ahmadinejad said, addressing the inauguration ceremony of the 28th International Holy Quran Competition here in Tehran on Wednesday.
"The uncivilized Zionists, for the sake of their own passions, have crushed and are crushing all humans under their heavy wheels of their egotism, materialism and capitalism," the Iranian president noted. The Iranian president referred to the occupation of Palestinian territories by the Israeli army and the deaths of over one million people in the US-led wars in Afghanistan and Iraq as further proof that Washington and its Middle East ally have sacrificed all human virtues to reach their colonial goals.
"Today, when there is a crime, corruption or dictator, wherever there is humiliation of humans -- when we pursue we come across the Zionist regime or the US or their allies," Ahmadinejad pointed out. "They know no boundary for stuffing their bottomless pockets," he added.
IRAN Leader Emphasizes Anti-US, Anti-Zionist Nature of Regional Movements http://english.farsnews.com/newstext.php?nn=9004090375
"Americans, Zionists and their followers in the region have been using all their capacities to divert the great movement of the nations and re-impose the previous oppressive equations by bringing to power their puppet elements; However, once a nation is awakened and stands by the field, it could no more be defeated," Ayatollah Khamenei said. Ayatollah Khamenei urged the world of Islam to keep vigilance against the efforts and complicated plans of the US and the Zionist regime against the nations, adding however that the Islamic awakening would remain in place.
The IR Leader touched on different plots of the enemies of Islam against the Islamic Revolution, including discord, infiltration, assassinations, sectarian and religious differences, and imposition of war against the nation, adding that the Global Arrogance would repeat the plots or similar ones against the awakened Muslim nations.Ayatollah Khamenei then warned that the US, in a complicated plot, tries to create problems for Syria, as a country belonging to line of regional resistance, by simulating the developments of Egypt, Tunisia, Yemen and Libya in the country.
The IR Leader said the Syrian incidents were different in nature from other regional developments.The Islamic Revolution Leader said the nature of regional Islamic awakening was anti-US and anti-Zionist while in Syria, the hand of the US and Zionists was clearly seen. "The logic of the Iranian nation is that anywhere slogans are chanted in favor of the US and Zionists, that is a deviant move," the IR Leader said.Ayatollah Khamenei underscored Iran's support to any justice-seeking and anti-Arrogance movement, adding that anywhere, a movement takes place against the US and Zionism and any nation which rises up against the US international dictatorship and internal dictators it would enjoy the support of the Iranian nation.

The potential balkanisation of Sudan and the role of meddlers http://www.pambazuka.org/en/category/features/74498
Ethiopia is jockeying to take advantage of the violence in Abeyei by offering ‘peacekeeping’ forces, which Hilary Clinton has already endorsed and perhaps even very strongly recommended. It was reported, ‘US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton...endorsed the idea of a peacekeeping force in Sudan's disputed Abyei region and encouraged both sides to take up an Ethiopian offer of troops.’ This proposal is alarming since it will surely complicate matters even more and must be discouraged by those who seek peace for Sudan and the region. Ethiopia’s motives are undoubtedly complex. The record of Ethiopian involvement in neighbouring Somalia can serve as a useful lesson. Ethiopian intervention in Somalia is one of the reasons for the increased violence and the dysfunctional state of affairs in that country.
The West's selective condemnation of dictators only complicates things for Africans and peaceful resolution of their conflicts. Overlapping convulsions of ethnic and state-sponsored massacre have been occurring against the Anuaks, in Oromia and the Ogaden within Ethiopia, without a word of acknowledgement from Washington. Successive American administrations protest with righteous indignation regarding atrocities in Sudan; nevertheless, massacres of farmers and civilians in Ethiopia have been unfolding without a murmur of complaint.
The eagerness of Zenawi to involve himself in South Sudan, as well as the quick endorsement by Hilary Clinton, can be seen as a scramble for oil by a trusted client of the West to control this vital resource. Ethiopia has more practical reasons for wanting to lead a ‘peacekeeping’ mission in Sudan. The US cuts Ethiopia a lot of slack. It is able to get away with bogus elections. It is the largest recipient of aid in sub-Saharan Africa, and it is able to ignore an international ruling with impunity. The irony of utilising Ethiopia as a peacekeeper in the border conflict in Sudan must not be lost. Ethiopia itself is in violation of an (ICJ) ruling which requires it to demarcate its border with Eritrea. Ethiopia is sitting in its own Abyei, a border region called Badme, which the ICJ determined to be an Eritrean territory.

Today, Western interests have changed to imposing capitalism (in the name of globalisation and economic prudence), the continued plunder of African resources and fighting the ‘War on Terror’. Those receiving Western praise and support now include President Meles Zenawi (Ethiopia), President Yoweri Museveni (Uganda), President Paul Kagame (Rwanda) and the Transitional Federal Government (TFG) in Somalia. In the words of Nii Akutteh: ‘The time and geographic elements also explain why some African rulers receive the Kleenex treatment from the West. When their usefulness comes to an end, they lose favour, are thrown aside and become pariahs, if not demons. President Robert Mugabe (Zimbabwe) and ex-President Charles Taylor (and now Muammar Gaddafi) might fall into this category.’
When African leaders attempt to rein in these foreign predators and resist neocolonial imposition, unjustified sanctions are applied without morality and due consideration for the poor of that country. A classic example of this is Zimbabwe, and Ghana under its first prime minister, Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah, and now Libya. Under these conditions, Africa is put in the spotlight and labelled ‘failed states’, ‘basket cases’ and similar patronisingly depressing accolades.
As if to rub salt into the wounds, there is the new president, Michel Martelly. A kompa singer and long-time proponent of Jean-Claude Duvalier, Martelly worked with the dreaded FRAPH death squads that killed over 5000 people in Haiti after the first coup against Aristide in 1991. He has made the reestablishment of Haiti’s hated military a priority of his administration. In the past, he has called for a ban on “all strikes and demonstrations.” In a revolting video released right before the election, Martelly called Lavalas members “faggots” and threatened sexual violence against Aristide. Some of his chief aides had warned that “the country would burn” if he were not selected.
In the end, Martelly was selected by only 17% of eligible Haitian voters. With Fanmi Lavalas excluded, and two right-wing candidates running, the vast majority of Haitians stayed away, refusing to lend credibility to the charade. The percentage of voters who turned out was the smallest in 60 years for any presidential election in the Americas.Right after his election, Martelly obediently traveled to Washington, where he met with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who declared that the United States was with him, “all the way.”
He then made the rounds with officials of the World Bank, the Inter-American Development Bank, and the chair of the International Monetary Fund chair, Dominique Strauss-Kahn (later arrested for attempted rape in New York). After the discussion with Strauss-Kahn, Martelly beamed and announced that, “the meeting had gone well.” (2) Of course it did. The vultures are hovering over Haiti.Taking note, Coca-Cola has expanded its Haiti operations, through its “Hope for Haiti” mango drink. Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, which didn’t even have the decency to postpone its post-earthquake Haiti tours, has received funding from U.S. AID to multiply its tourist operations in northern Haiti, training Haitians to be “hospitality workers.” And energy companies are lining up to grab contracts to dig up the country in order to exploit Haiti’s vast mineral wealth.

Brasilia - Seminars on the truth about Cuba continued Wednesday in Brazil with sessions at the University of Brasilia and the Leonel Brizola Foundation of the Democratic Labor Party (PDT).The seminars by Cuban experts aim to get out the facts about the revolutionary process in the island, as well as the recent decision by the Cuban Communist Party to update the socialist model, with approved changes to economic policy.Participants at the forums included Kenia Serrano, a member of the Cuban parliament and president of the Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples; Cuban Book Institute president Zuleica Romay; the Cubadebate website's editor, Rosa Miriam Elizalde;
and Magali Llort, mother of Fernando Gonzalez, one of the five Cuban anti-terrorists unfairly imprisoned in the United States.Organized by Brazilian groups, the seminars got underway last Friday in Sao Paulo, continued in Rio de Janeiro Monday, and reached Brasilia yesterday with a debate, The Cuban Revolution 52 Years Later: Transformations and Challenges.During another seminar, Cuba's Image in the Brazilian Press: an Objective Vision of Cuban Reality, Brazilian journalist Carlos Alberto Almeida said that speaking about that issue in Brazil is a great injustice, because Brazilians are prevented from knowing the truth about the Cuba.
The Brazilian big business media is not interested in the facts about Cuban, meaning people have no way of knowing that Cuba and Brazil are carrying out a joint project to produce vaccines for Africa, or that they are associates in a tripartite program with Haiti for health care in that country.It is also not known that Cuba, a country that eradicated illiteracy in the early 1960s, designed the "Yes, I Can" method to teach people how to read and write not only in Spanish and other languages, but in indigenous dialects as well.
Former Israeli combat pilot takes part in Freedom Flotilla 2 http://www.middleeastmonitor.org.uk/news/middle-east/2527-former-israeli-combat-pilot-takes-part-in-freedom-flotilla-2
Reports in Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth claim that a former Israeli Air Force commander is taking part in Freedom Flotilla 2 heading for Gaza. The newspaper noted that former combat pilot Yonatan Shapira ended his service in the Israeli Air Force when he refused to bomb Palestinian residential and civilian areas following the 2002 raid against leading Hamas military figure Salah Shehada.
Mr Shapira will join the US-flagged ship The Audacity of Hope in the flotilla. Holocaust survivor Hedy Epstein is among 50 American and Jewish peace activists who will be on board the same vessel. Epstein, 86, has tried to reach the Gaza Strip several times before, but has been prevented on each occasion."We cannot know whether we will reach the Gaza Strip, but we have one goal: to help the innocents in Gaza even if Israel sinks all the ships and kills us all," said Shapira.
Israeli sources reported that the army, a number of Israeli security officials and politicians, conducted on Tuesday a drill simulating the interception of the Freedom Flotilla 2, that will be heading to Gaza to deliver medical and humanitarian supplies.The drill started in a special operations room designed for this purpose, while personnel of the several ministries, the offices of Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu,
and Defense Minister, Ehud Barak, attended and supervised the simulation.Israel also prepared videos and documents justifying an attack on the flotilla, and will be ready to be publish the reports on Internet feeds, to media agencies and through SMS messages. Freedom Flotilla organizers issued several press releases affirming the non-violent nature of their trip to Gaza, and that its only goal is to break the illegal Israeli siege and to deliver urgently needed medical and humanitarian supplies.

Observers point out that US Special Forces have been in Libya since February at the latest. They also note that, while the Libyan destination is highly plausible, some of these units may also find themselves on the way to Yemen, Syria, Iran, or beyond. At the same time, the Russian Foreign Ministry was denouncing the presence of the US Aegis cruiser Monterrey in the Black Sea. The amphibious assault ship USS Bataan and its task force are presently off the coast of Syria. One very plausible explanation for these deployments might be that a US attack on Syria, under the pretext of protecting civilians, is imminent.

EJDC projects, including settlements, conservation areas and new â€œheritageâ€� sites, have been sprouting up steadily across East Jerusalem. Palestinian residents in Silwan, for example, are under direct threat from the excavation of the â€œCity of Davidâ€�, while the Jerusalem Municipality has issued plans to convert much of the Wadi Hilweh and Al-Bustan neighbourhoods into a settler-run archaeological park. To support this plan, Palestinians are evacuated from their homes, denied building permits, and demolition orders are often issued through the municipality on tenuous licensing pretenses.
Italian photographer captures suffering of Palestinian female prisoners, tells true story to the world / Falastine Al-Remawi http://english.wafa.ps/index.php?action=detail&id=16583
Italian photographer Venturo Formicone Wednesday inaugurated his photographic exhibition 'Suspended Lives' in Ramallah, which supports and gives voice to Palestinian female ex-prisoners and prisoners in Israeli prisons, shedding light on the human rights violations they have been subjected to ... "When I presented these photographs in Madrid last February, I saw people stop, check each photo and read the story, which is a way to support Palestinians. The Spanish government funded this work and that also shows support to the Palestinian issue. Each photo says I am a former prisoner, I am a human being,"he added.
IDF has no way of stopping mass non-violent protest in West Bank http://www.haaretz.com/news/diplomacy-defense/idf-has-no-way-of-stopping-mass-non-violent-protest-in-west-bank-1.370322
As September draws nearer, the Israel Defense Forces has been conducting drills in order to contend with the possibility of a mass civilian uprising in the West Bank in the wake of the Palestinian bid to seek unilateral recognition in the United Nations. "A non-violent protest of 4,000 people or more, even if they only march to a checkpoint or a settlement, and especially if the Palestinian police does not deter them, will be unstoppable," one IDF officer claims. "Such a great number of determined people cannot be stopped by tear gas and rubber bullets."
Canada – the quiet warmonger http://axisoflogic.com/artman/publish/Article_63321.shtml
But even before expanding its militarism, Canada has been quietly serving as a merchant of death. Although it is extremely hard to find exact numbers, due to deliberate government obfuscation, it is known that Canada is the world’s sixth largest supplier of weaponry. Not bad for a country with a smaller population than the state of California.Most Canadians are oblivious to the efforts of its government to get a big piece of the action in the killing business.
But to the extent that Canadians know anything at all about the military industry, they are assured by the federal government that strict guidelines are in place to ‘control’ the flow of weapons systems – but not actually stop them. Because of these flexible guidelines, Canada finds its weapons, or weapon components, in high demand, not only by foreign governments engaged in wars (sometimes against their own people) but also by ‘business-friendly’ régimes that oppress their populations through threats, intimidation, and the omnipresence of local brutal security forces.
Canada reports, through a variety of agencies, what weapons, or parts of weapons, are produced; but it is a Gordian knot trying to determine exactly what has gone where. The various agencies report various things, and it is clear that some reporting is deliberately evasive. For instance, Canada ships helicopters to the army in Colombia but doesn’t list this as ‘military equipment’ because the weaponry is not installed in them. The weaponry is shipped to the US as components where it is assembled and sent to Colombia separately.
Afghanistan must prosecute Taleban attacks as war crimes, says Amnesty http://www.irna.ir/ENNewsShow.aspx?NID=30455659&SRCH=1
Afghan authorities must work with the International Criminal Court to investigate those responsible for war crimes and crimes against humanity in Afghanistan, says Amnesty International.Its call to prosecute Taleban attacks as war crimes comes after a series of serious attacks by insurgents deliberately targeted civilians, including a car bomb attack on a hospital in Afghanistan's eastern Logar province on 25 June, which killed at least 27 people.
The UN reported that May was the deadliest month for civilians in Afghanistan since 2007, with 82% of civilian casualties attributed to anti-government groups. The London-based human rights group said there has been a surge of attacks amounting to violations of international humanitarian law on the part of the Taleban and other insurgent groups. “They are becoming far bolder in their deliberate killing of civilians, which is a war crime, plain and simple,” said Sam Zarifi, Amnesty International’s Asia-Pacific director.

Iran calls for OIC resolution on total nuclear disarmament http://www.mehrnews.com/en/newsdetail.aspx?NewsID=1347125
Iran has proposed that nuclear weapons throughout the world should be dismantled, Ali Akbar Salehi said on Tuesday in the 38th meeting of Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC).The OIC has proposed many new ideas which have been successfully implemented in recent years, but serious collective cooperation is required to achieve the organization’s objectives, Salehi stated. Salehi also expressed hope that this conference would yield good results for the Islamic nations and said, “Our conference is being held as important developments in the Middle East and North Africa are occurring.
The developments indicate the fact that the region is in dire need of change.” Elsewhere in his remarks Salehi said, “Unfortunately, the establishment of a nuke-free Middle East has been held hostage to the Zionist regime's nuclear weapons policies over the past forty years.”“The Zionist regime's persistent defiance to join the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and put its nuclear facilities under the International Atomic Energy Agency safeguards have been undermining international efforts to reach regional and global disarmament,” he explained.

Venezuela rejects US interventionist report on human trafficking http://www.abn.info.ve/node/64871
The Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela rejects in the strongest way, the interventionist policy of the United States government, which is to publish “Reports” revealing the permanent meddling of the Department of State in the internal affairs of other countries.According to this aberrant practice, the Department of State released in June 27, 2011 an “Annual Report on Human Trafficking” aimed at becoming, without any juridical or technical legitimacy, in a world referee about other countries policies in this matter.
The Venezuelan Government rejects the hypocritical attitude of the United States Government that unilaterally assumes a role of judge; at the same time that country holds the record in human world trafficking, especially Latin American citizens, whose fundamental rights are violated in a systematic way by authorities that are even capable of organizing human hunting in the borders areas.In the case of Venezuela, the cited “Report” represents a sum of generalities without any fundament or support that represents the political prejudices of the U.S bureaucracy concerning the Venezuelan Government, instead of the findings of a serious and impartial investigation.
The shame of the United States government even gets once more to the point of threatening with the imposition of unilateral “sanctions” against Venezuela, because our government “has not supplied information about the efforts to fight the human trafficking for the above mentioned report,” as it were about a subordinate entity bound to be accountable to the Department of State.The Bolivarian Government of Venezuela has not supplied, and it will not do it, information to any foreign government about matters that are our exclusive sovereign interest. It will initiate a deep investigation to determine the responsibility of the US embassy representatives in Caracas regarding the drawing up of such “Reports”, this would represent an abuse of the diplomatic functions they have been accredited.

Ah, good ol’ Iran making ambiguous threats which are then used by the corporate media to hype up an irrational fear and support for a possible preemptive strike. The media’s Iran fearmongering was on a bit of a hiatus as they utilized their propaganda machine to focus on Libya, Syria, and Pakistan. However, the commander of the Revolutionary Guard’s Aerospace Force gave the Western media plenty of murky possible threats to run with.
Iran has been flaunting their new underground missile silos which are designed to avoid satellite detection, among other intimidating weaponry during this extended exercise. This is very likely a reaction to the United States’ attempted missile defense shield program which would encircle the entire region. This plan was vocally opposed by Russia and the other nations that would have hundreds of ballistic missiles pointed directly at them.The Western media has been putting pressure on the few nations that haven’t fully surrendered to globalist interests from every angle. This is especially apparent with the coverage of the latest Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) meeting and the general rhetoric surrounding these nations.

LEBANON STL- Ferzli: Alliance with Miqati Strategic Mistake http://uprootedpalestinians.blogspot.com/2011/06/ferzli-alliance-with-miqati-strategic.html
New Majority Fell in The Trap… Alliance with Miqati Was Strategic Mistake Government Will Not Be Allowed to Confront STL is a Blackmail Tool Miqati Pressuring Allies for Compromises Miqati Assigned to Complete Saad Hariri’s Role
In an exclusive interview with Al-Manar Website, Ferzli said that what was needed at this stage was to wait for the local and the regional circumstances to maturate and then suppressing Hezbollah. He said that Miqati was the appropriate person to guarantee this.Ferzli reminded that the indictment issue was brought back to the political scene in Lebanon right after the formation of the government, as it was absent during the last five months of governmental void. He recalled that he had advised the new majority not to hasten the cabinet formation based on the “no government, no tribunal” equation.
“The tribunal has been a blackmail tool and Miqati was designated to blackmail the majority constituents so that they make compromises,” Ferzli said.He ruled out an imminent issuance of the indictment, but said that it could be released gradually, so that it remains an effective blackmail tool in the upcoming stage. “In case it was issued all at once, it will lose its effect, whether supported by proof or not. This does not serve their intention to stir up sedition from time to time.”

101 organizations of Palestinians, Israelis, Muslim-Americans, African-Americans, Jewish Americans and others have signed a letter thanking the Los Angeles Lakers legend for declining to attend the festival. The letter highlighted Israel’s discriminatory policies against the Palestinian people—whether living under occupation in the West Bank and Gaza, living as second-class citizens in Israel, or living as refugees in exile. It also highlighted the Palestinian civil society call for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) on Israel until it ends its discriminatory practices. The boycott includes targeting Israeli cultural institutions. The letter explains:
“In an effort to salvage its worsening reputation, Israel has embarked upon an effort to re-brand itself as a beacon of cultural and technological progress, diverting attention away from its war crimes and apartheid policies. Israel uses its cultural institutions, such as the Jerusalem Film Festival, to whitewash its violations of international law and human rights.”

NEOCON/ZIONISTS WISHFUL THINKING AND PROPAGANDA- Without Chavez, Venezuelans May Have a Future By Roger F. Noriega http://www.aei.org/article/103804
The struggle for the future of Venezuela after Hugo Chávez may already have begun. But, millions of Venezuelans have been holding their next breath wondering whether Chávez is drawing his last. Silent video and still photos released from Cuba late Tuesday are not terribly convincing.Whatever happens to the ailing leader, the fact remains that Chávez's regime has outlived its viability, and no Venezuelan should waste a moment pretending that they will mourn its passing.

Reported the Observer: "In subsequent investigations, unseemly associations surfaced. For example, a Miami-based money launderer with ties to the Medellin cartel testified to a Senate committee that he personally had cleaned up $230,000 by cycling it through a bank account used for non-lethal Contra aid. While at USAID, Roger [Noriega] also steered a $750,000 grant to the Thomas A. Dooley Foundation, headed by Verne Chaney, a close colleague of retired General John Singlaub, who, in turn, helped Oliver North run the illegal arms supply network to the Contras during the U.S. aid cutoff. For his part, Chaney did a survey of the Contras' medical needs in 1985 together with Rob Owen, who was subsequently nailed as Ollie North's bag man.

A Weird, Weird Web Around Amazon Oil http://mikesbogotablog.blogspot.com/2011/06/weird-weird-web-around-amazon-oil.html
It's like something from a spy novel, involving a man nicknamed Dr. Death, the Vietnam War, jungle oil reserves and possible ties to cocaine smuggling and the CIA.Now the tale turns sinister: Also according to La Silla Vacia, two of Montco's three owners are linked, thru another oil company they own, to a narcotrafficker named Chupeta. El Tiempo reports other contacts between Montco and shady characters.Weirdest of all, Montco hasn't given up on getting oil exploration rights. And the guy representing the company in Colombia is David Scott Weekly, who earned the nickname Dr. Death by carrying out special operations in southeast Asia during the Vietnam War.
Weekly has also been linked to the CIA in news reports, altho the CIA denies this. What's behind all of this? An unknown company with dubious associations offers millions of dollars for Colombian oil prospecting rights and hires a Dr. Death to lobby for it.It also so happens that lots of Colombian cocaine passes thru West Africa on its way to Europe, altho apparently little thru Gabon.All of which suggests where these millions of dollars might have come from.
(HONDURAN PROTESTS AGAINST US BASES MET WITH SEVERE REPRESSION) Honduras Protesta frente a base militar de Soto Cano reprimida por fuerzas policiales http://nicaraguaymasespanol.blogspot.com/2011/06/honduras-protesta-frente-la-base.html
Some three hundred people demonstrated outside the U.S. military base at Soto Cano (Palmerola), demanding an end to militarization in Honduras and Latin America, were suppressed with tear gas and beaten by a strong contingent of military and police. "We were moving toward the main entrance of the largest U.S. military base in the region, when police attacked us with gas. Several colleagues beaten," said Bertha Caceres, Coordinator of the Civic Council of Popular and Indigenous Organizations of Honduras (Copinh ).
Minutes later, the group of national and international activists took to the road again and continued their protest, which is part of the International Conference against the Militarization that developed in the past few days in La Esperanza, Intibucá, Honduras. "We are surrounded by soldiers and police, but our action is peaceful and only want to express our rejection of the coup, imperialism and repression. We demand justice, ending impunity and not approve the law with which the deputies intended revive conscription in the country, "said indigenous leader.
According to Caceres, the decision to move against the military base in Soto Cano in the second anniversary of the coup in 2009 overthrew the legitimate government of Manuel Zelaya, is due to the need "to remember the harmful role that United States has had for over a hundred years against the Honduran people. " "We are remembering that America has played a key role in the coup and the militarization of the imperial government driven across Latin America and the Caribbean is part of a strategy of invasion, expropriation and looting of our countries. Again, the social protest is being repressed and criminalized, and we are claiming to the world, "he said Caceres.

A Hasidic man, Simchon Shwartz shouted racist epithets and violently assaulted his neighbor, calling them “F—ing Arabs,” “F—ing Terrorists.”“F—ing Arabs! F—ing terrorists!” Schwartz screamed when he grabbed his neighbor, Selda Turan, 27. He shoved the woman against her car and poured beer on her head, a police source said.This disgusting assault will most likely not be covered much by the media, we will hear deafening silence from Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer, or silly equivocation along the lines of, “but…no..he was drunk,” etc.Imagine for a second if a Muslim had done this? We all know that this would be immortalized as a terrorist attack and Islam would be blamed for the attack.
The Business of America is War - by Stephen Lendman http://warisacrime.org/content/business-america-war
Noted trends analyst Gerald Celente said it, and it's true. In fact, America's business is war, more war, multiple wars, permanent wars, pillaging one nation after another for wealth, power, and dominance, while homeland needs go begging.America never was and isn't now the "land of the free and home of the brave." In fact, it's become a "Let 'em eat cake" society. Whether or not Marie Antoinette actually said it, France's 1789-99 revolution was very real,
delivering guillotine justice, not promised "Liberte, Egalite, and Fraternite," a status now destroying what's left of American freedom, heading for the trash bin of history if not already there.Earlier articles discussed Washington's wars against Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya and Yemen, as well as numerous proxy ones in Africa, Asia, Central and South America, and at home against Muslims, Latino immigrants, and working households.
People's Tribunal against the Criminalization of Protest in Ecuador http://upsidedownworld.org/main/ecuador-archives-49/3099-peoples-tribunal-against-the-criminalization-of-protest-in-ecuador
For this reason, one of the main objectives of this conference was to expose these kind of cases, thus exemplifying the ongoing criminalization of protest in Ecuador. An integral part of the conference was a Court of Ethics that analyzed "the criminalization of defenders of human rights and nature." This people’s court took place on Wednesday, June 22, with the presence a jury of four international authorities: Elsie Monge (Ecumenical Commission of Human Rights, CEDHU, Ecuador), Raul Zibechi (writer and journalist, Uruguay), Leah Isabel Alvear (poet and academic, Colombia),
and Mary Hamlin (International Movement for People’s Health). They listened to more than four hours of testimonies and 17 cases of people accused of terrorism."Democracy can only be guaranteed when citizens are guaranteed their rights to protest and resistance," testified Ramiro Avila, a lawyer and professor at the Universidad Andina Simón Bolívar. "These laws are being used to suppress protest and should be immediately repealed." Avila explained that the law under which the right to protest is criminalized in Ecuador dates back to the early republic, based on the Penal Code of 1920.

Mossad Bomb Russian Plane To Kill Scientists? http://www.pakalertpress.com/2011/06/29/mossad-bomb-russian-plane-to-kill-scientists/
Several Russian nuclear engineers and scientists, including the nuclear expert who designed Iran’s nuclear power plant at Bushehr, were killed when a RusAir Tupolev-134 plane crashed while landing at Petrozavodsk, the capital of the north-western Russian Republic of Karelia, on June 20. The five nuclear experts, Sergei Rizhov, Gennadi Benyok, Valery Lalyn, Nicolai Tronov, and Andrei Tropinov, were employed by Hydropress, one of the main Russian contractors at the Bushehr facility. The five had all worked at the Bushehr facility. The Russian nuclear engineers and scientists were among 45 people killed in the crash of the Russian airliner.
Israel’s Mossad has been suspected in the deaths of a number of Iranian and Turkish nuclear scientists. Although Russian officials are calling the crash an “accident” caused by poor weather conditions and pilot error, there are reports that the plane caught fire and broke up before it crashed.

Sardasht, an Iranian city near the border with Iraq, was attacked by four bombs containing 250 kilograms of mustard gas. The bombs were dropped in the densely populated town center.The Iranian foreign minister blamed a number of Western countries for providing the former Iraqi regime with chemical weapons in order to undermine the nascent Islamic Revolution of Iran.“Today we are witnessing the emergence of an ominous and evil phenomenon by the name of terrorism, which is undoubtedly the result of moral corruption and the desire to impose dominance on others,” said the president.
