THINKING OUT LOUD

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.

Gaza Sues Israel over 'War Crimes'

Now that the Israeli offensive against the Gaza Strip came to an end, marking another victory for the Resistance in the region, it's time for "action" against the "war crimes" committed by the Zionist entity against the Palestinians.

In this context, the Israeli military control banned the publication of the names and photos of officers and soldiers who have taken part in the Israeli offensive. The Israeli decision was regarded by analysts as an attempt to obstruct the juridical proceedings against Israeli military and political leaders who participated in 'war crimes against humanity.'

The Israeli military sources said that the decision was taken after the propagation of the photos of the Palestinian civilians killed by Israeli excessive and random fire. They noted that international organizations and major states were heading towards accusing the Israeli army of violating international laws. [read more]

Chomsky: Holbrooke's record is tainted

Noam Chomsky
In an exclusive interview with Press TV, renowned American intellectual Noam Chomsky discusses the latest developments following President Barack Obama's inauguration.

Press TV correspondent Afshin Rattansi asked about the new US Pakistan- Afghanistan envoy, Richard Holbrooke and if he is the person to solve the situation there and the recent attack in northwest Pakistan by US missiles that killed several people on Friday and the fact that the White House has remained silent about the attack.

Chomsky replied that it is clear that Obama would accept former president George Bush's doctrine of freely bombing Pakistan. He noted that there has already been serious fighting in the province of Peshawar in Pakistan that tribal leaders trace back to a US bombing of a madrassa that killed 80 people - the news of which was published in the Pakistani media but was never publicly reported in western media.[read more]

The democratic Hamas government says it will set up a committee to oversee relief efforts in the Gaza Strip
Hamas plans to set up a high-ranking committee to oversee the distribution of aid in Gaza which was left in ruins after the 23-day Israeli war.

Hamas' Minister of Social Affairs Ahmed al-Kurd will head the National High Committee for Relief which will distribute some 35 million euros ($45 million) to those who lost family members or their homes.

"It will be the only body to oversee and supervise the rescue. We will be in contact with all other bodies, whether local, national or international, to organize the relief," al-Kurd said at a news conference in Gaza City on Saturday.

Officials of the Islamic resistance movement Hamas said the emergency relief would include 4,000 euros (5,200 dollars) for a destroyed house, 500 euros (650 dollars) for an injury, 1,000 euros (1,300 dollars) for every family member killed in Israel's three-week-long offensive against the coastal enclave.[read more]

Gadafi's One State solution

Qaddafi believes Israelis and Palestinians can end their hostilities by coexisting in a single state called 'Isratine'.
Israelis and Palestinians can put an end to their ongoing conflict by trying to coexist in a unified state, says the leader of Libya.

The solution is "one state for all, an 'Isratine'," Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi wrote in an article.

This "would allow the people in each party to feel that they live in all of the disputed land and they are not deprived of any one part of it," reads the piece which was first published Thursday in New York Times.

Qaddafi first came up with the proposal in 2003, saying that a two-state solution would not produce the desired results. [read more]

Thus, an Arab "unexpected" verbal reconciliation cannot pass without influences in Lebanon, where the Arab conflicts were reflected on the ground for more than three years.

Indeed, and three years after Lebanese Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri said that the key for solutions in the region could be reached by adopting the "S-S formula" in reference to Syria and Saudi Arabia, the Syrian-Saudi reconciliation has been achieved at the sidelines of an Arab summit in Kuwait.

Falk likens Gaza to Warsaw Ghetto


UN investigator Richard Falk says Israeli crimes in Gaza will leave Palestinians mentally scarred
There is more than enough evidence that Israel committed war crimes in its three week-long offensive into Gaza, says a UN investigator.

UN special rapporteur Richard Falk called for an independent inquiry into Israel's violation of international humanitarian law.

Falk said Israel's actions against the besieged Gazans are reminiscent of "the worst kind of international memories of the Warsaw Ghetto" which included the starvation and murder of Polish Jews by Nazi Germany in World War Two. [read more]

Posturing and Laughter as Victims Rot

Mahmoud Abbas stepped further into humiliation by saying the only option for Arabs is to make peace with Israel

The front page of the Beirut daily As-Safir said it all yesterday. Across the top was a terrible photograph of the bloated body of a Palestinian man newly discovered in the ruins of his home while two male members of his family shrieked and roared their grief. Below, at half the size, was a photograph from Israel of Western leaders joking with Ehud Olmert, the Israeli Prime Minister. Olmert was roaring with laughter. Silvio Berlusconi, arms on the back of Olmert's shoulders, was also joshing and roaring – with laughter, not grief – and on Olmert's right was Nicolas Sarkozy of France wearing his stupidest of smiles. Only Chancellor Merkel appeared to understand the moral collapse. No smiles from Germany.

Europe laughs while Palestinians mourn their dead. No wonder that in the streets of Beirut, shops were doing a flourishing trade in Palestinian scarves and flags. Even some of Palestine's most serious enemies in Lebanon wore the Palestinian keffiyeh in solidarity with the people of Gaza. Over and over again, Al-Jazeera television strapped headlines on to their news reports of Palestinians carrying the decomposing corpses of their dead: "More than 1,300 dead in Gaza, 400 of them women and children – Israeli dead in the war 13, three of them civilians." That, too, said it all. [read more]

The Gaza Tunnels Stories

Although the Israeli air force bombed the Phildelphi corridor along the border thousands of times during the course of its aggression against the Gaza Strip, Israeli daily Haaretz quoted sources as saying that some tunnels running under the border between Egypt and the Strip have remained in use, and were in operation even during the fighting.

Contrary to Israeli official reports saying that Israeli army has achieved its war objectives in Gaza, Hamas was still able to smuggle arms, according to Haaretz report.


Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak
Israel has threatened to launch a new strike against Gaza after having failed to diminish Hamas's power through three weeks of offensive.

"During the operation that we have carried out in the Gaza Strip we have destroyed 150 tunnels, including some which were targeted several times...If we are forced to, there will be more attacks," said Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Wednesday.


The Likud Party has lashed out at the leaders of the ruling Kadima Party after army reports that Palestinians are rebuilding the Rafah tunnels.

In a statement, the right-wing Israeli party said on Wednesday that "The renewal of arms smuggling today teaches that there is no connection between [Kadima Leader Tzipi] Livni's travel to world capitals and preventing the smuggling of rockets and armaments in the Gaza Strip."

The statement was issued as Livni was meeting with 27 European foreign ministers in Brussels in a bid to work on arrangements for preventing the transfer of arms to Hamas. [read more]

Shalit Deal & Arms smuggling

Gilad Shalit was captured by Palestinian
fighters at a border post in June 2006.


The Hamas movement said Thursday that no progress had been made in the talks aimed at securing a deal for the release of captured Israeli occupation soldier Gilad Shalit, despite Israeli media reports.

A source in the Palestinian resistance organization said, "If the Israelis want to talk and discuss, they know where, how and with whom, but the people in Israel should know that its government is not doing a thing to advance the issue."

Abu Mujahed, a spokesman for the Popular Resistance Committees, also said that there was no news on the Shalit issue. "The Israelis are wrong if they think the war will help them pressure us on Shalit. Our demands have not changed: The entire list of prisoners we demanded, and in addition, launching talks on lifting the siege."

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert was asked earlier Thursday about the opportunity to return Shalit now that the military operation in Gaza was over, and replied, "I believe the questions about Shalit are legitimate, but my response will not advance his release. I am working, I have worked and I will work for his release."

He claimed that the military offensive in Gaza "created leverages which could speed up Shalit's return to Israel."[read more]

Mashaal said the war in Gaza was the "first and great real war that our people won," and that "Hamas and the resistance emerged as an indispensable part."

He added, "We achieved our objectives by forcing the enemy to withdraw from Gaza," in reference to the unilateral ceasefire declared by Israel and the withdrawal of Israeli occupation troops, completed Wednesday.

This morning, and tomorrow morning, and every morning until this punishment beating ends, the young people of the Gaza Strip are going to be more filled with hate, and more determined to fight back, with stones or suicide vests or rockets. Israeli leaders have convinced themselves that the harder you beat the Palestinians, the softer they will become.

Western Democracy & The Media

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 only [western] democracy in Middle East Israel is an occupi er? Why is it that the most populous [western] democracy on this earth India is an occupier? 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]

'Israel failed to achieve objectives' - to Marginalise Hamas

Khalil Jahshan
The following is Press TV's exclusive interview with Khalil Jahshan, a lecturer in International Studies and Languages at Pepperdine University who has served as President of the National Association of Arab Americans (NAAA).

Press TV: The violence in Gaza is seemingly over. How has the war affected both sides?

Jahshan: Well, despite Israel's declaration of victory, I do not think it has achieved its declared objectives in Gaza. Yes, it has probably weakened military power of Hamas to some extent bur it did not definitely destroy Hamas and did not definitely change the equation in the region as their prime minister and foreign minister declared as their main objective.

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]

Hamas claims victory in Israel's war on Gaza


Marzouk: Of course, it is very clearly a victory. When the aggression started, they [Israel] wanted five objectives for this war; to remove Hamas from governing Gaza Strip, to stop the rocket-launching from Gaza, to stop any kind of weapons from [entering] Gaza, and to replace Mahmoud Abbas back in power again (in Gaza) -- to change the formula. They are trying to [make] a good picture of the Israeli leader and the Israeli army.

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.

Arrest warrant: Tzipi Livni

For violations of the Rome Statute & 4th Geneva Convention

Israeli Foreign Minister, will be contesting 
for Prime Minister in the coming election.

On the 12th of July 2006, the suspect along with her accomplices ordered the aerial bombardment and artillery assault on residential areas in Lebanon. For 34 days she authorized troops to make 12,000 aerial sorties, to fire 100,000 artillery shells.
