MAKING THE WORLD SAFE FOR HYPOCRISY

Martin Luther King and The Peaceful Revolution



The Great Depression, Hitler, and other Stories

----------------------------------------------------------------------

"We have to kill all the Palestinians unless they are resigned to live here as slaves."

[CHAIRMAN HEILBRUN of the Committee for the Re-election of General Shlomo Lahat, the mayor of Tel Aviv, October 1983.]

----------------------------------------------------------------------
"The removal of Arabs bodily from Palestine is part of the Zionist plan to "spirit the penniless population across the frontier by denying it employment...Both the process of expropriation and the removal of the poor must be carried away discreetly and circumspectly."

[THEODORE HERZL founder of the World Zionist Organization Complete Diaries, June 12, 1895 entry.]

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Setting Priorities

For the cost of the Iraq War one of the following could have been funded (which is worth keeping in mind when politicians drag out that bit about there not being any money to pay for anything...)...Note that only one of these could be funded. If someone wanted all of these funded it would be required that the Bush tax cuts be eliminated, as well as the tax cuts implemented around the world...

World Hunger could be eliminated for two decades.
Number of Starved Babies saved - all of them.
Over 50 million children could have attended pre-shool daycare.
Over 100 million children could have received health insurance.
Over 6,000,000 school teachers could have been hired.
Over 10,000,000 low income students could have attended four years of university.
Over 6,000,000 low income housing units could have been built.
100 per cent of the debt of the most heavily indebted poor countries could have been paid off.





None of these items were funded because they are not a national priority, and besides, 'we just can't afford it'. It is worth noting that all these programs stimulate the global economy, and thus the argument that further tax cuts must be given to really rich people to 'stimulate the economy' and 'create jobs' is a red herring.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Albert Einstein - Why socialism : Einstein described the process of the free market leading to inevitable collapse into depression as follows - "I shall call "workers" all those who do not share in the ownership of the means of production ... the worker produces new goods which become the property of the capitalist ... Private capital tends to become concentrated in few hands ... The result of these developments is an oligarchy of private capital the enormous power of which cannot be effectively checked even by a democratically organized political society. This is true since the members of legislative bodies are selected by political parties, largely financed or otherwise influenced by private capitalists ... an "army of unemployed" almost always exists. The worker is constantly in fear of losing his job ... unemployed and poorly paid workers do not provide a profitable market ... The profit motive, in conjunction with competition among capitalists, is responsible for an instability in the accumulation and utilization of capital which leads to increasingly severe depressions ... This crippling of individuals I consider the worst evil of capitalism. Our whole educational system suffers from this evil. An exaggerated competitive attitude is inculcated into the student, who is trained to worship acquisitive success as a preparation for his future career ... "

From   The Genocidal Mentality Part 1 : 'Free Market' Genocide
----------------------------------------------------------------------

 "We enthusiastically chose to become a colonial society, ignoring international treaties, expropriating lands, transferring settlers from Israel to the occupied territories, engaging in theft and finding justification for all these activities. Passionately desiring to keep the occupied territories, we developed two judicial systems: one -- progressive, liberal -- in Israel; and the other - cruel, injurious - in the occupied territories. In effect, we established an apartheid regime in the occupied territories immediately following their capture. That oppressive regime exists to this day".

-- The war's seventh day by Michael Ben-Yair (Israel's Attorney General, 1993 - 1996).



    -----------------------------------------------------------------

The closer you examine it, the clearer it is that neoconservatism, in large part, is simply about enabling the most irredentist elements in Israel and sustaining a permanent war against anyone or any country who disagrees with the Israeli right. That's the conclusion I've been forced to these last few years. And to insist that America adopt exactly the same constant-war-as-survival that Israelis have been slowly forced into... But America is not Israel. And once that distinction is made, much of the neoconservative ideology collapses.
Andrew Sullivan

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Gestapo is now occupying our towns. We labor to build their army. We labor to consume our earth. We labor to fuel their killing machines. We build and patrol our empire's military bases overseas, to guard their mines, factories and slaves.

  While we labor, their schools pledge, allegiance, and indoctrinate our children into a life of obedient servitude.
  They issue a green paper permiting the obedient children to own the land they were born on.
  Their chemical industry sells us both the poisons and the antidotes that sustain our perpetual struggle and labor.
  Their ''officials'' will issue a white paper permitting the obedient children to own a ''spouse'' and produce more soldiers.
  Their media will distract us, and inform us what to believe, what little to vote for, who to hate, who to invade and who to kill.

  Our time, labor, money, service, lives, and the lives of our children, will be used to build bases and factories overseas.
  Our life will be spent in an escalating war for market share, raw materials, and cheaper slave labor feeding this Vampire.

  The intelligent children who seek an escape from this slavery, will be offered only alcohol, drugs and a bridge to sleep under.
  Liberty will not be tolerated.


  Only the Humans of this earth can save this Eden from our empire,
  by not killing creation over mere flags, mere fables and mere words.

  What will you do to restore your Forest, and your Life in this Eden ?
  And if not you, then who ?
  And if not now, when ?

Thomas Panto

"[T]wo-thirds of the 621 children killed at checkpoints, in the street, on the way to school, in their homes, died from small arms fire, directed in over half of cases to the head, neck and chest – the sniper's wound".

Dr Derek Summerfield, reporting on the results of a four-year field
study in the occupied Palestinian Territories for the British Medical
Journal.







                  ----------------------------------------------


"This (Israeli society)  system indoctrinates its pupils with a violent tribal cult, totally ethnocentric, which sees in the whole of world history nothing but an endless story of Jewish victimhood. This is a religion of a Chosen People, indifferent to others, a religion without compassion for anyone who is not Jewish, which glorifies the God-decreed genocide described in the Biblical book of Joshua."

"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".

                         Sir Gerald Kaufman MP

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

People are scared in the US, to say 'wrong is wrong,' because the pro-Israeli lobby is powerful.
Well, so what
?
For goodness sake, this is God's world! We live in a moral universe. The apartheid govt. was very powerful, but today it no longer exists.

                Desmond Tutu, Nobel

                           --------------------

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction....

The chain reaction of evil--hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars--must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation.
                         Martin Luther King, Jr.

The normative difference between Israel and other democratic countries is reflected in the scope of the use of torture in interrogations. Whereas Israel used torture routinely, having tortured thousands of interrogees, other countries rarely used torture.

                     B'tselem

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
“Once a government is committed to the principle of silencing the voice of opposition, it has only one way to go, and that is down the path of increasingly repressive measures, until it becomes a source of terror to all its citizens and creates a country where everyone lives in fear.”
              - Harry S. Truman
                             ------------------------------
The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.

Herman Goering at the Nuremberg Trial

"First they came for the Communists, but I was not a Communist so I did not speak out.
Then they came for the Socialists and the Trade Unionists, but I was neither, so I did not speak out.
Then they came for the Jews, but I was not a Jew so I did not speak out.
And when they came for me, there was no one left to speak out for me.”

'Throughout the world, on any given day, a man, woman or child is likely to be displaced, tortured, killed or "disappeared", at the hands of governments or armed political groups. More often than not, the United States shares the blame.'

-----------------------------------------------------

'The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary.'
                            
H.L. Mencken, 1920

----------------------------------------------------------

'No exceptional circumstances whatsoever, whether a state of war or a threat of war, internal political instability or any other public emergency, may be invoked as a justification for torture'
    
The Convention Against Torture and other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment  or Punishment, 1987 
----------------------------------------------

'US nationalism is not an enviable position or ideology to hold. It means support or complicity in the carpet bombing of Vietnam and Afghanistan; overthrowing democratically elected governments in Chile, Indonesia, Iran, and more; dropping the atomic bomb on two cities in Japan for no reason except to test them; organizing death squads throughout Latin America; using biological weapons against Cuba a number of times; embargoing nations until they cried uncle; and all the time, speaking hypocritically about equality and democracy. A nationalism that supports all this is hard-pressed to see itself as virtuous.'

        ANIMAL CONCERN
           
           www.animalconcern.com  
   

Animal Concern was formed in 1988 and incorporates its parent body the Scottish Anti-Vivisection Society, founded in 1876 to fight laws legalising live animal experiments.
The change to Animal Concern reflected growing involvement in campaigns against other issues such as factory-farming, dog-fighting, the fur trade, performing animals, killing of seals, misuse of air weapons and bloodsports. In the U.K. we campaign from Shetland to the Channel Isles and we have also been involved in campaigns throughout Europe as well as the USA, Canada, Australia and the far  East.  
                                                  


We are strictly an animal rights pressure group and are not directly involved in animal welfare. We have no facilities to deal with abandoned, injured or abused animals, but concentrate on trying to change social attitudes and legislation to eradicate animal abuse at source. A few years ago we established Animal Concern Advice Line, an independent charity which offers a 24 hour telephone advice line and website (www.adviceaboutanimals.org)  on animal issues, and directs the public to the most appropriate source of assistance. We also established the Save Our Seals Fund (http://www.saveoursealsfund.org) a charity which promotes seal conservation and assists the work of independent seal sanctuaries.

WINNING FOR ANIMALS


Campaign successes over the last twenty years include closing down two horrific primate research projects (in one case rescuing surviving animals and suitably rehoming them); exposing the vast numbers of pet-type dogs used in laboratories (legislation was later passed to restrict this use of dogs); saving and rehoming bears due for destruction on closure of a safari park; first ever prosecution of a seal-shooting fish-farmer; persuading local authorities to adopt humane stray control; saving individual animals due for destruction in zoos; encouraging many Councils to ban animal circuses and fairs giving animals as prizes from public land; exposing the tactics of pro-hunt supporters; helping close fur farms and shops; closing down disreputable breeders and suppliers of cats and dogs for research and generally raising public and political awareness of animal issues.

WORKING WITH OTHERS


We differ from other organisations in that we seldom co-operate or negotiate with animal abusers as this usually only leads to time-wasting talking-shops or, at best, inefficient legislation and worthless voluntary codes of practice. We prefer to expose exploiters and maximise public pressure for strict legislation. We also refuse to agree with the destruction of healthy animals. Our campaigning methods, while lawful, are more aggressive and high profile than many other groups. We have, sadly, had to take other groups to task several times over issues including culling of animals and the use of inhumane methods of destruction. Perhaps our success can best be measured by the fact that other groups have, to a degree, adopted some of our methods and taken on-board campaign issues we were first to recognise.
Despite the above, we firmly believe in unification of the animal rights lobby and we speak out against the wasteful duplication and competition which does exist. Although one of the smallest of the national groups we have, on several occasions, taken the initiative to call together major and local groups to organise joint campaigns. We co-operate with any like-minded organisation to achieve our mutual aims.

WITHIN THE LAW


It must be made clear, however, that while we work within the law and totally and publicly condemn groups or individuals who support the use of fire, explosion or product contamination, we will not condemn those who go outside the law to liberate and rehome exploited animals, or to bring evidence of that abuse into public view.
