Notes and tidbits posted on FB and Twitter. Part 151

Note: I take notes of books I read and comment on events and edit sentences that fit my style. I pay attention to researched documentaries and serious links I receive. The page is long and growing like crazy, and the sections I post contains a month-old events that are worth refreshing your memory.

Your depressed friends could be a good source of free labor. Invite them to contribute to your life in some way, even if it’s as small as asking you to go see a movie that you wanted to see in the theater or help you clean out the garage: They love to get engaged

Jihad told me and showed a short video of the wedding of his son As3ad Ghoussoub in Cyprus. Perfect wedding to be emulated extensively. Break my heart that Cyprus is a century ahead of Lebanon in civil status laws and human rights

Cyprus frequent visits to Lebanon is to convince us to install all the oil and gas infrastructure for the region on our seashore. Rational: since our shores are so heavily polluted, let’s Capitalize on that humiliating and unhealthy situation. Cyprus is to remain a touristic attraction for the over 7 million visitors a year

Paul (the disturbed) was being ironic when he wrote: “If you can’t believe Jesus resurrected, you are No Christian”. And he knew people were fool enough to take seriously that faith in myths rules supreme. He resumed thus to discriminate against female gender

Pietro voulait contribuer au jour le jour, a son echelle: une vie reglee’ par une routine intangible. Pietro etait depasse’ par le desorde diffus dans tous lea domaines de l’existence.

When inspiration becomes manipulation, inspiration becomes obfuscation. If you are no cynical you should be skeptical. You should be as skeptical of placebo politics as of placebo medicine.

If a problem is in fact endemic to a system, then the exponential effects of Moore’s law also serve to amplify what’s broken.

If and when the key problems facing our species were to be solved, then perhaps many of us in this room would be out of work (and perhaps in jail).

It’s not true. Problems are Not “puzzles” to be solved. That metaphor assumes that all the necessary pieces are already on the table, they just need to be rearranged and reprogrammed. Barely anything is on the table, discussed and analyzed.

Instead of dumbing-down the future, we need to raise the level of general understanding to the level of complexity of the systems in which we are embedded and which are embedded in us.

Philip Giraldi: Israeli government is a rogue regime by most international standards, engaging as it does in torture, arbitrary imprisonment, administrative detention, and continued occupation of territories seized by its military, assassination.

“I’m not your inspiration, thank you very much”: Handicapped Stella Young, a comedian and journalist

Ladies and gentlemen, I’m afraid I’m going to disappoint you dramatically. I am not here to inspire you. I am here to tell you that we have been lied to about disability.

Stella Young is a comedian and journalist who happens to go about her day in a wheelchair — a fact that doesn’t automatically turn her into a noble inspiration to all humanity. In this very funny talk, Young breaks down society’s habit of turning disabled people into “inspiration porn.”

This talk was presented to a local audience at TEDxSydney, an independent event. TED’s editors chose to feature it for you.

 

CIA carried out terrorist bombing in Syria’s capital

The news that the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency carried out a meticulously planned terrorist car bombing in Damascus, Syria, appeared on the front page of the Jan, Washington Post.

It was an outrageous action in the capital of a sovereign state. By all definitions, a state-sponsored car bombing in the capital city of another nation is defined as terrorism.

It doesn’t take much imagination to picture what the U.S. response would be if the scenario were reversed and such an attack took place in Washington, D.C. At the very least, bombs and missiles would fall like rain on Syria.

That the CIA would carry out such an act is hardly a surprise.

In its 7 decades’ existence, the CIA has been responsible for the murder of millions and the destruction of scores of progressive movements and governments in Asia, Africa, Latin America and Europe.

Virtually every progressive leader in the countries liberated from colonialism or neo-colonialism in the post-World War II era has been targeted for assassination by the CIA at one time or another.

From Vietnam to Haiti to Afghanistan and beyond, U.S. clients who had outlived their usefulness in the eyes of Washington were set up for elimination.

CIA engineered or assisted coups in Iran, Guatemala, Congo, Iraq, Indonesia, Greece, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay and more, and brought to power regimes that used extreme brutality in the interests of U.S. corporations and local elites.

Organized in 1947, the agency’s first coup was in newly independent Syria just two years later. Its bloody trail confirms that the CIA is the deadliest terrorist organization in the world, bar none.

What was unusual about the 2008 assassination of a top Hezbollah commander, Imad Mughniyah, was the public revelation that the CIA, in partnership with Israel’s Mossad secret service, had carried it out.

While the CIA formally declined comment on the story, the sources for the article were past and present CIA officials, something unthinkable unless approved from inside the agency.

Standard CIA practice has long been to refuse to comment on its coups and murders—and for good reason.

Regardless of whether they are “signed off on” by the president or any other U.S. official, all are blatant violations of international and U.S. domestic laws.

Agency officials seek to maintain a “window of deniability” to protect themselves from possible future legal consequences.

Israel High Court: Genocide Of Christian And Muslim Babies Is Legal

THE BOOK IS A VIRTUAL MANUAL FOR JEWISH EXTREMIST TERROR DESIGNED TO JUSTIFY THE MASS SLAUGHTER OF CIVILIANS.

 Feb 10, 2018

A book published by Rabbis Yitzhak Shapira and Yosef Elitzu in 2009 states that it is legal under Jewish law to kill Gentiles (Christians and Muslims) and in certain cases, the babies of Gentiles.

In a ruling on whether these statements are genocidal and a call to incitement, Israel’s High Court of Justice decided that:

THERE IS NO BASIS TO INDICT THE AUTHORS OF THE BOOK TORAT HAMELECH (“THE KING’S TORAH”) FOR INCITEMENT.

Israel’s  Attorney- General,  Yehuda Weinstein, said that Torat Hamelech was written in a general matter and does not constitute incitement. However, American author and activist Max Blumenthal disagrees. In his research of the book, Blumenthal concluded:

WHAT APPEARED WAS JEWISH EXCLUSIVISM IN ITS MOST EXTREME FORM, WITH NON-JEWS DEEMED PERMISSIBLE TO KILL, OR RODEF, FOR THE MOST INCONSEQUENTIAL OF WARTIME ACTS, INCLUDING PROVIDING MORAL SUPPORT TO GENTILE ARMIES. THE BOOK IS A VIRTUAL MANUAL FOR JEWISH EXTREMIST TERROR DESIGNED TO JUSTIFY THE MASS SLAUGHTER OF CIVILIANS.

This belief has been constant in Israel.

The killing of Palestinian civilians is a daily occurrence in the Occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip. In 2014, Israel attacked Gaza and killed over 2,000 civilians, destroyed tens of thousands of homes, and left hundreds of thousands of civilians homeless.

Today the Gaza Strip, which is home to hundreds of thousands of the descendants of refugees who were ethnically cleansed from Israel following its creation, live in an open air prison.

What’s even more disturbing is the authors’ call for the genocide of infants:

WHEN DISCUSSING THE KILLING OF BABIES AND CHILDREN – WHY ON THE ONE HAND, WE SEE THEM AS COMPLETE INNOCENTS, AS THEY HAVE NO KNOWLEDGE, AND THEREFORE ARE NOT TO BE SENTENCED FOR HAVING VIOLATED THE SEVEN LAWS, AND THEY ARE NOT TO BE ASCRIBED EVIL INTENT. BUT ON THE OTHER SIDE, THERE IS GREAT FEAR OF THEIR ACTIONS WHEN THEY GROW UP… IN ANY EVENT, WE LEARN THAT THERE IS AN OPINION THAT IT IS RIGHT TO HURT INFANTS IF IT IS CLEAR THAT THEY WILL GROW UP TO HARM US, AND IN SUCH A SITUATION THE DAMAGE WILL BE DIRECTED SPECIFICALLY AT THEM.

In July of 2015, Israeli settlers torched the home of the Dawabsheh family, incinerating  18-month-old Ali Saad to death. His parents later died as a result of the attack, leaving their four-year-old son an orphan with burns over most of his body.

Despite repeated calls for Israel to end its occupation of Palestine, the Israeli government and its settlers continue killing and stealing from the Palestinians, justifying their atrocities to warped interpretations of religion.

آخرهم الطفل السوري “موسى” 3سنوات الذي كان مرمياً بين الخيم لوحدهُ بعد أن توفي والداه في الحرب
…………..
الكثير ينعتوها بالعاهره الفاجرة،
لكن لم يسألوا أنفسهم ماذا قدمت فنانات العرب المُحتشمات الشريفات الطاهرات المؤمنات المحجبات المنقبات التقيات … الخ ؟
* أحلام الإماراتيه تملك ضعف ثروة انجلينا جولي و عندما سمعت بخبر تبني إنجلينا لـ “موسى” نشرت فوراً على تويتر :
“قلقه جداً من التربيه التي سيتلقاها “موسى” بين أيدي و أحضان غير مُسلمه”
علميهم يا من ترتدين فستاناً بمليوني دولار و خاتماً بنصف المليون و عطراً بألفي دولار، و لم تُفكري للحظه عن مأسآة الجوع و العطش و التشرد و البرد القارس الذي جربهُ موسى و أمثال موسى كُل ثانيه ..فهذة الكافرة الغير مسلمة قد علمت العالم العربي دروس في الانسانية والمحبة والعطف والحنان وضحت بنفسها من اجل العرب .

تستحق القراءة💔

Visite de Tillerson à Beyrouth : ce qu’en dit la presse libanaise

(See notes at the end of the article)

Fermeté à l’égard du Hezbollah, écarts protocolaires : la visite, la veille, du secrétaire d’Etat américain, Rex Tillerson, à Beyrouth a été abondamment commentée vendredi dans les grands titres de la presse libanaise.

“Tillerson depuis Beyrouth : inquiétez-vous du Hezbollah”, titre le quotidien de référence an-Nahar, en référence aux propos tenus par le chef de la diplomatie américaine, lors de son escale à Beyrouth, selon lesquels l’engagement du Hezbollah “dans les conflits régionaux” menace “la sécurité du Liban” et a des “effets déstabilisateurs sur la région”.

Dans son article, l’éditorialiste Rosana Bou Monsef a vu dans les déclarations de M. Tillerson un “message adressé à l’Iran”, notant qu’elles tranchent avec celles qu’il avait tenues la veille, à Amman, lorsqu’il a reconnu que le parti chiite faisait partie du “processus politique” au Liban.

De son côté, le quotidien al-Joumhouria est revenu, dans l’un de ses articles, sur les écarts protocolaires qui ont marqué l’escale beyrouthine du secrétaire d’État, qui ont provoqué le “mécontentement” de la part des Américains.

A l’aéroport de Beyrouth, M. Tillerson n’a pas été accueilli à sa descente d’avion par son homologue libanais, Gebran Bassil, mais le directeur du protocole par intérim du ministère des Affaires étrangères. (Les coutumes de faiblesse d’antan n’oblige pas a perpetuer ce qui n’est pas du protocole international)

Et à son arrivée au palais de Baabda, un peu en avance, le responsable américain a trouvé le fauteuil présidentiel vide et a attendu quelques minutes l’arrivée de M. Bassil et du président Michel Aoun.

Le journal relate également les sujets de discussion qui étaient au menu des entretiens de M. Tillerson avec le chef de l’Etat et le Premier ministre Saad Hariri, notamment sur les dossiers du mur israélien à la frontière avec le Liban et l’exploitation des ressources offshores au large des côtés libanaises près d’Israël.

Al-Joumhouria publie par ailleurs un entretien avec le ministre de la Jeunesse et des sports, Mohammad Fneich, membre du Hezbollah, qui affirme que “les prises de position de Tillerson sur le Hezbollah ne nous concernent pas”.

Pour sa part, le quotidien al-Moustaqbal, propriété de M. Hariri, titre “Tillerson à Beyrouth : partenariat ‘stratégique’ et ‘médiation’ frontalière”, notant que les responsables libanais ont réitéré leur engagement envers la politique de distanciation des conflits régionaux et la résolution 1701.

Dans son article, Thouraya Chahine souligne que “le message de Washington est clair : la stabilité et l’armée libanaise sont des lignes rouges”.

Le journal al-Akhbar, très proche du Hezbollah, indique dans un article que “M. Tillerson a répété la même chanson américaine classique : désarmement du Hezbollah, assèchement des sources de financement du Hezbollah, retrait du Hezbollah de Syrie, préservation du calme au Liban-Sud et soutien à l’armée libanaise”.

“Le Liban refuse les diktats américains concernant la frontière”, titre le quotidien selon lequel les  Etats-Unis ont recommandé aux responsables libanais d’accepter les propositions au sujet de la frontière de l’émissaire du département d’État, David Satterfield, qui doit s’entretenir dans la journée avec Gebran Bassil.

Selon notre correspondant diplomatique Khalil Fleyhane, M. Satterfield a proposé une formule de compromis au sujet du bloc 9, prévoyant que la compagnie chargée de l’exploration des hydrocarbures offshore verse au Liban les deux tiers de ses ventes et le tiers à Israël, en attendant que le conflit frontalier soit réglé. Une proposition sur laquelle les dirigeants libanais ont exprimé des réserves.

(Pourquoi Israel ne verserapas le tier de ses ventes en attendant que les zones maritimes soient regle’?)

Note 1: After the visit of Tillerson on Thursday, Hassan Nasrallah delivered a speech on Friday. He bolstered the position of the Government by assuring them that Hezbollah can counter any Israeli land or sea encroachment on Lebanon. “Lebanon army is denied adequate weapons, but Hezbollah has all the necessary means to defend Lebanon’s rights”

Note 2: President Aoun responded to Tillerson that the military readiness of Hezbollah cannot be negotiated before a lasting peace on Lebanon borders and the return of the Palestinian refugees in Lebanon

Note 3: Any negotiation on borders land swapping is meant to erect a Wall of Shame along our border with Israel
