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

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.

The True Story Behind This War is Not the One Israel is Telling.

THE world isn't just watching the Israeli government commit a crime in Gaza; we are watching it self-harm. 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. But when this is over, the rage against Israelis will have hardened, and the same old compromises will still be waiting by the roadside of history, untended and unmade. [read more]

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]

Egypt keeping Iran aid ship from Gaza

An Iranian aid ship bound for Gaza has not yet received permission to dock at the Egyptian port of Al-Areesh, 50km off the coastal strip.

Ahmad Navvab, a provincial Red Crescent director, said Wednesday that although Egyptian authorities issued permits for the aid's dispatch via the Al-Areesh port, they have so far prevented the ship to drop anchor.

"Their pretext is that the port is at full capacity and lacks necessary space for another ship," said Navvab, adding that Egyptian authorities issued permits only after coming under international pressure.[read more]

UN Under Secretary General for Humanitarian Affairs John Holmes (L)
The UN humanitarian chief says it is "absolutely critical" for Israel to open all border crossings to the Gaza Strip immediately.

John Holmes said on Tuesday that to rebuild the war-ravaged Gaza, it is "absolutely critical" that Israel reverse the ban it has enforced since Hamas came to power in 2007 and that it allows cement, pipes and other building materials to enter the Palestinian territory.

He stressed that his top priority will be to get all Gaza border crossings opened as soon as possible "otherwise, the reconstruction effort won't get off first base."[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]

There is no such thing as independent Israel!

Former US presidential candidate Ron Paul

The following is an exclusive Press TV interview with US congressman Ron Paul, a unique conservative politician who wants an end to US military presence on foreign soil, advocates US withdrawal from the UN, NATO and the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and opposes the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

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.

Paul: I don't think there is such a thing as an independent Israel doing anything, because I think no matter what they do its our money, its our weapons, and their not going to do it without us approving it and if they get into trouble we're going to bail them out, so there is no separation between the two.[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.

Ahmadinejad sends messages on Gaza

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.

"The gravity of the atrocities against the Palestinian people", according to Caracas, had earlier caused the expulsion of the Israeli ambassador from the Venezuelan capital.

Three days later Qatar and Mauritania also suspended economic and political ties with Israel, after Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal called on all Arab nations to cut ties with Israel.

Ahmadinejad: Gaza struggle has just begun

Ahmadinejad has congratulated Hamas over its "victory" over Israel.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says the "victory" of the resistance over Israel should be followed by preventative steps.

"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.

According to the outspoken Iranian president, resistance will ensure that the Palestinians can assert their rights as the native population of the lands occupied by Israel and will prevent further Israeli aggression against Gazans.

UK women blast media bias toward Israel

Gazan women mourn over the loss of their loved one.
Muslim and Jewish women in the UK have condemned mainstream media outlets for self-censorship in their coverage of Israeli conduct in Gaza.

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.

Neither does it report Jewish opposition to this Zionist slaughter of the innocents," the protesters said in a statement.[read more]

Egypt denies anti-Gaza deal with Israel

Egypt has denied assertions that Israel stopped its military operations in the Gaza Strip after signing a security agreement with Cairo.

Israel and the US have publicly signed an agreement to restrict arms flow into Gaza, raising speculation that Egypt had promised to cooperation for the realization of the deal.

A senior Israeli official fueled the speculations on Monday by claiming that Tel Aviv had announced its ceasefire in Gaza after Egypt and the United States promised to bring to a halt all weapon imports into Gaza.

"Israel and Egypt have reached written understandings on security arrangements to prevent arms smuggling along the Gaza-Egypt border and deeper inside the Sinai Peninsula," AFP quoted the unnamed Israeli official as saying.[read more]

Sir Gerald Kaufman Veteran Labour MPUK

Text : I was brought up as an orthodox Jew and a Zionist. On a shelf in our kitchen, there was a tin box for the Jewish National Fund, into which we put coins to help the pioneers building a Jewish presence in Palestine.

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. 

My parents came to Britain as refugees from Poland. Most of their families were subsequently murdered by the Nazis in the holocaust. My grandmother was ill in bed when the Nazis came to her home town of Staszow. A German soldier shot her dead in her bed.

My grandmother did not die to provide cover for Israeli soldiers murdering Palestinian grandmothers in Gaza. The current Israeli government ruthlessly and cynically exploits the continuing guilt among Gentiles over the slaughter of Jews in the holocaust as justification for their murder of Palestinians. The implication is that Jewish lives are precious, but the lives of Palestinians do not count. 

It is time for our government to make clear to the Israeli government that their conduct and policies are unacceptable, and to impose a total arms ban on 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.

They are not simply war criminals; they are fools. [listen to the speech]

Israel 'can be tried for war crimes'

Amnesty International says the streets and alleyways of densely-populated Gaza are littered with evidence of indiscriminate Israeli usage of incendiary weapons.
Human rights group Amnesty International accuses Israel of war crimes, saying its use of white phosphorus shells in Gaza was indiscriminate.

"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]

Hamas vowed on Monday to rearm in defiance of any Israeli and international efforts to prevent the Islamic resistance group from replenishing its arsenal of rockets and other weapons after the Gaza war.

Addressing journalists with his face masked by a checkered Arab scarf, he said that only 48 Hamas resistance fighters were martyred in the Israeli offensive in Gaza. Abu Obaida also said that Israel lost "at least 80 soldiers" in the fighting; however the Zionist entity has adopted the media blackout policy concerning its losses there.

Gaza ceasefire negotiations

Hamas and Israel consider ceasefire proposal as Israel steps up campaign.

For the first time since the Israeli attack on Gaza began, the diplomatic effort approached a tangible achievement. Hamas announced Wednesday it will conditionally accept a ceasefire proposal offered by Egypt. Israel sent Amos Gilad, General Major (Reserves) to discuss the Egyptian proposal in Cairo. The Real News spoke to George Rishmawi, founder of a multimedia independent network in Palestine called the International Middle East Media Center. Rishmawi says the proposal offers an immediate end to violence, but does not necessitate an Israeli withdrawal, a condition Hamas said it would not sacrifice. Israel's conditions were pending on a complete cessation of the rocket attacks from Gaza and an arms embargo. Further diplomatic efforts by Condoleezza Rice have involved the US Navy. Rice urged Israel's Minister of Foreign Affairs, Tzipi Livni, to sign a memorandum of understanding stipulating the United States will secure the end of arms smuggling into Gaza by monitoring the Gaza shore.[view video]

Israeli imposed war damages 20,000 houses in Gaza

The Palestinian Central Bureau Statistics says the Israeli onslaught on Gaza has cost the Palestinian economy at least $1.6 billion.

The bureau, in its latest report, said that Israel has reduced some 4,000 residential buildings to rubble and damaged 16,000 more houses during the conflict.

This brings the number of houses destroyed or devastated in the Israeli attacks to 20,000, which consists of 15 percent of all Gaza structures.

Tel Aviv waged war on the Gaza Strip on December 27 and killed at least 1,300 Palestinians, including 411 children, and wounded 6,000 others.

While both Palestinians and international bodies continue their efforts to determine the economic damage suffered since the start of the Israeli offensive, preliminary estimates have been provided.[read more]

The rosy picture US media paints of genocide

Sat, 17 Jan 2009 13:39:14 GMT | PressTV
By Shirin Barghi and Dex A. Eastman, Press TV, Tehran
A wounded Palestinian woman is escorted to the hospital after an Israeli strike in Gaza City. The war on Gaza has so far killed around 1200 Palestinians and wounded over 5300, many of them women and children.
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]
