A couple of years ago I had set up a wifi system around my house but it was down, I am thinking of making another one and I am going to name it "wifi republic".
I am going to re-organize my blogs too, now I am testing some templates, trying and testing them at this stage. I am trying to fully utilized the latest blogspot editor. Not doubt that they are better with many needs that are taken care of. However the new blogspot editor lack fluidity where we can used different blog templates for different categories of posts or entries.
However I had thought of this new format. Try anak matlesen to see the new format. The present PERWI is slightly messy as I had attempted to master the new blogspot editor. I think by doing that I had taken extra "memories".
I am still in the learning curve and I may not proceed with the present idea for I have to evaluate either to follow the existing system that blogspot new editor provide or do the necessary such as amending the html on the free template that I had obtained satisfactorily to get a system that I want.
Israeli wants peace, one imposed on its own terms, based on the acceptance of defeat by the Palestinians.
In World War 1, ‘imperialists’ were threat to the civilized world. In World War 11, ‘Nazis and Facists’ were threat to the civilized world. In Cold War, Communists were threat to the “free world.” And now “Muslim terrorists” are threat to the civilized world. It is not a chance that there is always a threat to the “civilized world,” and to save the “civilized world” from this threat, slaughter of human being is a must.
Ask a question? Why is it that [western] democratic Britain and [western] democratic France have been the occupiers of the world?

Why is it that the most [western] powerful democracy in the world America is the occupier of the world?
GAZA: How Biased Media Manipulates the Facts THE media coverage of the war in Gaza by Western television companies is largely unfair and biased because of a refusal to show viewers the real images of the victims. One of the reasons for this is Israel’s decision not to allow the Western media in to Gaza. In addition to this outrageous censorship by a so-called democracy, we get the usual arguments that most of the images shown by the Arab media are too shocking to show the viewing public in the West. Admittedly, the horrific clip sent to me of a child’s head lying detached, among debris in Gaza did make me gasp.[read more]

First, it is a unilateral declaration of ceasefire which proves the non-symmetrical nature of that conflict between the Israelis and Palestinians in general and between Israel and Hamas in particular.
Second, Hamas was not really consulted. It was left out to be contacted by the third and forth parties. When you have important ceasefires and agreements like this one, negotiated indirectly from long distance, history teaches us that they do not last.
They used the excuse that Hamas wants to destroy Israel and the classification of Hamas by the US and later by the EU as a terrorist organization to say they are not fit to be at the negotiation table or even to be contacted with. [read more]

Ron Paul, House representative of the 14th district of Texas, believes that US foreign policy must be reformed to avoid conflicts around the world.
The interview was conducted outside the Foreign Relations Committee.
Marzouk: We don't mind if Ban Ki-moon talks with us. We have prepared for everything. We [would] provide complete security for Ban Ki-moon, and we [would] help the United Nations employees anywhere in the Gaza Strip, and we welcome any meeting with him. But this decision belongs to him. And for the Israelis, if they did not withdraw completely from the Gaza Strip, we can start resisting those troops.
Marzouk: It is not our objective to get the money, and it is very clear to us that should not go to Mahmoud Abbas. What we need and want is that this money goes to the people directly; go to the people whose houses were destroyed; to the universities; to schools. And they can do that themselves. Or they can send advisors, or somebody to monitor their money in Gaza Strip. We do not mind the 'how' or the way to send the money and give it to the people, but we will never accept any step like this to give the money to Mahmoud Abbas.

The report claimed the warplanes targeted a rocket launcher in the region. No one has confirmed it yet.
Israel's launch of Operation Cast lead in the densely-populated areas of the Gaza Strip prompted the Latin American nations of Venezuela and Bolivia to break diplomatic relations with Tel Aviv on January 14.

"Today is the beginning of victory and resistance will complete the links of victory," Ahmadinejad told Hamas political leader Khaled Mashaal in a telephone conversation.
In line with his vision for the Palestinians, Ahmadinejad said the Muslim world should "pressure the Zionist regime to fully retreat, open the crossings and try the Zionist criminals". [read more]
British women, who gathered outside the BBC Broadcasting House in London on January 19, say the mass media refuses to air reports of women giving birth at checkpoints, the expulsions, thefts of land and resources and the imprisonment of children.
The protesters condemned the BBC, saying it propagates sketchy and biased news about the Gaza conflict. "The BBC has not publicly complained that Israel is preventing their reporters from entering Gaza to witness the bombing and invasion firsthand. Neither does it report Jewish opposition to this Zionist slaughter of the innocents," the protesters said in a statement.[read more]

I first went to Israel in 1961 and I have been there since more times than I can count. I had family in Israel and have friends in Israel.
It is time for peace, but real peace, not the solution by conquest which is the Israelis' real goal but which it is impossible for them to achieve.
Amnesty International says the streets and alleyways of densely-populated Gaza are littered with evidence of indiscriminate Israeli usage of incendiary weapons.
"Such extensive use of this weapon in Gaza's densely populated residential neighborhoods is inherently indiscriminate," Donatella Rovera, a Middle East researcher with Amnesty International, said in a statement on Monday.
"Its repeated use in this manner, despite evidence of its indiscriminate effects and its toll on civilians, is a war crime," she charged.
The statement was released after British weapons expert Chris Cobb-Smith found widespread evidence of the use of the incendiary material in an on-the-ground study on Sunday. [read more]

The Taliban are claiming they control 70 per cent of rural Afghanistan and have instituted a shadow government with their own police, courts and rule of law.
The boast comes in the days leading up to Barack Obama's inauguration as U.S. president, who is planning on dramatically ratcheting up America's military presence in Afghanistan.
The Taliban's claim is being dismissed by many inside Afghanistan as empty rhetoric, but there is little denying that their presence is expanding.[read more]

For those who still believe the United States of America is the land of freedom of speech, US news coverage of the Israeli war on Gaza provides a second insight and more than enough evidence to the contrary.
In the follow-up to Tel Aviv's Operation Cast Lead on Gaza, the US media for three weeks has silently watched Israel kill innocent civilians day in and day out without so much as a wince.
At a time when world news outlets -- some of which are owned by Tel Aviv's allies -- are condemning the war, the so-called free media of the US has virtually cheered and championed Israel for its courage to kill, providing a completely divorced-from-reality version of what is happening in the virtual ghetto.
The New York Times has so far provided one-sided coverage of the conflict with little editorializing and commentary, and the Washington Post has -- in its usual contortionist manner -- described the offensive as "risky" but thoroughly "justified". [read more]
