Christmas Card Video

Please send this Christmas Card to others:


Santa claus Christmas card video
I just made the graphic into a card:
A message from Santa Claus ... STOP these WARS! And why wouldn't he say that? The wars are wrong. If you have the power and the celebrity of Santa Claus and you know something's wrong, why wouldn't you speak out against it? Makes sense to me. Use your influence to put an end to an injustice.

How many people think this war is right? All the needless killing, all the needless suffering, all the waste. Why did the United States attack Afghanistan? Because the Taliban refused to extradite Osama bin Laden? That's not an excuse to attack a country and kill all these civilians. There are other countries - the United States refuses to extradite terrorists.

"Right now the US is refusing to extradite to Venezuela Luis Posada Carriles who's one of the leading - most notorious terrorists in the world." - Chomsky

Also, look what actually did work: police work. It wasn't war that apprehended the mastermind of the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center, it was police work. It wasn't war that apprehended the mastermind of 9/11, it was police work. And trying to use war? That is an example of it NOT working, Osama bin Laden got away.

Chomsky Birthday & Power and Terror: Israel Kills Civilians with U.S. Helicopters

SEE VIDEO: Chomsky Birthday & Power and Terror: Israel Kills Civilians with U.S. Helicopters
"On October 3, the defense correspondent of Israel’s leading journal, Ha’aretz, reported the largest purchase of U.S. military helicopters in a decade: Blackhawks and parts for Apache attack helicopters sent a few weeks earlier. On October 4, Jane's Defence Weekly, the world’s most prominent military journal, reported that the Clinton Administration had approved a request for new Apache attack helicopters, the most advanced in the U.S. arsenal, having decided, apparently, that the upgrades were not sufficient for the current needs of attacking the civilian population. The same day, the U.S. press reported that Apaches were attacking apartment complexes with rockets at Netzarim. The German press agency quoted Pentagon officials who said that "U.S. weapons sales do not carry a stipulation that the weapons can’t be used against civilians. We cannot second-guess an Israeli commander who calls in helicopter gunships.""

YES They Did! Swine Flu (H1N1) Shots for Obama Girls

About the video, "Everything Is OK" by FlyingPigsOK: This stupid video is another example of the misinformation being spread here on Youtube. For example, it claims Obama hasn't had his children vaccinated against the swine flu. It was uploaded Nov 11th, yet two weeks before this video was uploaded, on Oct 27th, the white house website posted this information: "Malia and Sasha were both vaccinated for H1N1 last week, after the vaccine became available to Washington, DC schoolchildren." - Posted on the White House Blog on October 27, 2009
SEVERAL blog posts about vaccines: 
About the biased and poorly framed article that appeared in the Atlantic about vaccines:

Note to those questioning the White House's Oct. 27th statement: The idea isn't to discount every single thing you hear from the White House, there has to be LOGIC. When I say specific things the WH says aren't true, I use something to reference it by, I had REASONS - I pointed to things and judged what was said against that. When I claim a WH statement is a lie, I show why it is a lie, I just don't claim it it is a lie. Do you see  the difference? What specifically is it you are referencing for you to make a conclusion that the White House's Oct. 27th statement is false?

Is This the Best We Can Do?

See video: Is This the Best We Can Do? asks Kucinich about Health Insurance for Health Care. "Government of the people or government by the corporations?" Oct 29, 2009 US House Speech

Is this the best we can do? Mandating private insurance? Forcing people to buy private insurance policies or pay a penalty, guaranteeing at least $50 billion dollars in new business for the insurance companies?

Is this the best we can do? Government negotiates rates which will drive up insurance costs, but the government won't negotiate with the pharmaceutical companies which will drive up pharmaceutical costs.

Is this the best we can do? Only 3% of Americans will go to a new public plan, while currently 33% of Americans are either uninsured or underinsured?

Is this the best we can do? Eliminating the state single payer option, while forcing most people to have to buy private insurance.

If this is the best we can do, then our best isn't good enough and we have to ask some hard questions about our political system, such as: Health Care or Insurance Care? Government of the people or  government by the corporations?" - One minute speech on the Floor of the House of Representative, Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) talking on Oct 29, 2009 about the latest House health care plan.

Purpose of the 9/11 Attacks

NEW VIDEO: Purpose of the 9/11 Attacks
Purpose of the 9/11 Attacks
Sheikh Mohammed said that the purpose of the attack on the Twin Towers was to "wake the American people up." Sheikh Mohammed said that if the target would have been strictly military or government, the American people would not focus on the atrocities that America is committing by supporting Israel against the Palestinian people and America's self-serving foreign policy that corrupts Arab governments and leads to further exploitation of the Arab/Muslim peoples.
You can find the above statement on page 11, as paragraph 15, under the heading "Purpose of the 9/11 Attacks"

Threats are a violation of our right to free speech

See video: Threats & Throwing Lit Matches

It should go without saying that making threats crosses the line. Everyone should know that no one has the right to intimidate people into not exercising their right of free speech. Threats are a violation of our right to free speech. And it's of course a violation of YouTube's terms of use and it's a violation of law.

You know I've been civil with this person in my video responses as you can see in these two previous videos. And this is the kind of comment he makes?

This isn't the first time Zionists cross the line in order to suppress talk about Israel. Soon after 9/11, I was waling through the streets of New York with this sign and I started to talk to three individuals. They asked about well what were the motives. So I went through them and I actually listed Israel as the third going by the 1998 fatwa. But if you go by the motives of the perpetrators and organizers and mastermind of 9/11, you see that the main motive was outrage at US support of Israel.

Questions and Answers about the NIST WTC 7 Investigation (Updated 04/21/2009)
For example: 
What caused the fires in WTC 7?
Debris from the collapse of WTC 1, which was 370 feet to the south, ignited fires on at least 10 floors in the building at its south and west faces. However, only the fires on some of the lower floors—7 through 9 and 11 through 13—burned out of control. These lower-floor fires—which spread and grew because the water supply to the automatic sprinkler system for these floors had failed—were similar to building fires experienced in other tall buildings. The primary and backup water supply to the sprinkler systems for the lower floors relied on the city’s water supply, whose lines were damaged by the collapse of WTC 1 and WTC 2. These uncontrolled lower-floor fires eventually spread to the northeast part of WTC 7, where the building’s collapse began. Read more WTC7 Q & A here

Default page for News & Politics category should be "Most Viewed"

I posted this important suggestion on the new YouTube Help Forum, please visit this link and post a reply to show your support for this suggestion: Default page for News & Politics category should be "Most Viewed" The way it is set up now, videos in the News & Politics section are handicapped so this is really important if we want YouTube to be a fair platform for political speech. I plan to upload a video about this later today, in the Nonprofits & Activism category.

The text of the comment is below, but remember to visit this link in order to show your support for and give your opinion on what I am suggesting.

Default page for News & Politics category should be "Most Viewed"
Please change the default page for the News & Politics category back to the way it was, to the way it is now for other countries like Canada and the UK. I'm sure others would want the situation with the News & Politics section to be improved because the way it is now, the News & Politics section is handicapping political speech. When a YouTube user in America or "Worldwide" clicks on News & Politics, they are taken to something called "Top News" as the default. That section is often lately limited to only 1 to 3 pages of listings, well under 100 videos, while every other section gives 5 pages in order to display 100 videos. Also, we are given no information on how it is determined which videos get listed in "Top News," the default page really should be "Most Viewed" so people can know that what gets listed prominently in News & Politics is determined fairly. Could you please give American users the same opportunity to see the 100 most viewed videos easily as users in Canada and the UK can? We here on YouTube certainly don't deserve to be subjected to the same bad habits of marginalization and narrowing of political discourse which permeate other American media outlets. Let's allow Americans the same degree of political discourse here on YouTube as other YouTube users are getting now in Canada and the UK. What we are asking is that the default page for News & Politics be the "Most Viewed" the same way it is now for people in Canada and the UK and other countries. That means at least 100 videos (it should be even more) in the default category of "Most Viewed" and without the content being marginalized down the page by "Top Headlines" and "News Near You." And please don't change the other countries into the poor way it is now for "Worldwide," the point is "Top News" is not a good default page. Also, a user has to scroll down to see the top videos listed and this bad layout undermines the exposure of the ad on that page too! (I only see half of the ad without scrolling.) That would at least bring it to the same level of fairness which users in other countries are getting now. 

I suggest that all categories be expanded to at least 1000 videos and this change would be beneficial to YouTube, it would make for more page views - more ad exposure for YouTube. This would be a major improvement and I am sure it will increase ad revenue for YouTube.

Strategy to Protect our Rights

The establishment of a representative media with a representative press is arguably the most important strategy to protect our rights. The way things are now, our rights are constantly being trampled and we are paying an enormous cost. I think a good plan of action is to boost this platform, what I call "Representative Press" (the YouTube Channel, the blog, website etc.), because the more people that see these ideas, the more we have moved closer to our goal. People need to hear about how things could be better if we just work together to establish a system which will be beneficial to us all. Part of the mission is to point out how propaganda is used to undermine attempts to keep powerful interests in check.

We MUST work on media reform

We MUST work on media reform and the best thing to do is to establish a media system to keep the current one in check. I think a representative media system must be established by the people. Begging mainstream medai to do a good job will not work. See my latest video: Good News Stories Plus Solutions: Media Reform

A small tax on all financial-market transactions

As I say in my latest twitter tweet: Tax Stock Trading.
(please follow me on twitter to help give a boost to ideas like this)

Nader makes a good case for it, pointing out that a transaction tax "would certainly raise enough to make the Wall Street crooks and gamblers pay for their own Washington bailout." Also, I support a tax on currency trades across borders. "Called the Tobin Tax after its originator, the late James Tobin, a Nobel laureate economist at Yale University, 10 to 25 cents per hundred dollars of the huge amounts of dollars traded each day across borders would produce from $100 to $300 billion per year."

Economist Robert Pollin explains, “A small tax on all financial-market transactions, comparable to a sales tax, would raise the costs on short-term speculative trading while having negligible effect on people who trade infrequently. It would thus discourage speculation and channel funds toward productive investment.” - Tax The Speculators

Compromised its promise to tell the full story of the 9/11 attacks

"Philip Zelikow had hired Harvard historian Ernest R. May as a consultant to the 9/11 commission. ... May felt that the commission had also compromised its promise to tell the full story of the 9/11 attacks by its refusal to tackle the issue of how American support for Israel and repressive Muslim regimes in Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Pakistan had 'fed the anger that manifested itself on September 11.' But May was told that the commissioners believed questions about Israel and Saudi Arabia were too controversial to be addressed in the final report. 'Composing a report that all commissioners could endorse carried costs,' May wrote." p391, The Commission: WHAT WE DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT 9/11

The continued risk we are put at because of supporting Israel

Here is ANOTHER example of the risk we are put at because of supporting Israel. Luckily the attack failed because the bombs failed to explode. Notice that the media doesn't make it clear what the motive is. They mention things that if you already understood the background, you could get his motive but they don't make it clear:
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/28828003/ Below I quote from the article:

"NEW YORK - In 1973, a young terrorist named Khalid Duhham Al-Jawary entered the United States and quickly began plotting an audacious attack in New York City.

He built three powerful bombs — bombs powerful enough to kill, maim and destroy — and put them in rental cars scattered around town, near Israeli targets.

The plot failed. The explosive devices did not detonate, and Al-Jawary fled the country, escaping prosecution for nearly two decades ...

Bomb plot foiled
On Jan. 12, 1973, Al-Jawary flew to Boston via Montreal and then to New York City. He began scouting targets for a terrorist attack.

He picked two Israeli banks on Fifth Avenue and the El-Al cargo terminal at Kennedy Airport.

Possibly working with two or more people, Al-Jawary rented three cars and assembled three bombs comprised of large containers filled with gasoline, propane tanks, plastic explosives, blasting caps and batteries, according to FBI and federal court records.

Two of the bombs used alarm clocks, but a third employed a sophisticated electronic-timing device commonly referred to as an "e-cell," ... It was twice as powerful as the other two bombs.

On March 4, Al-Jawary — and possibly others — readied the cars in anticipation of Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir's visit to the city.

Each car contained a Hebrew language newspaper with propaganda [WHAT DID IT SAY? WHY DON'T THEY TELL THEIR READERS?] from Black September — the terrorist organization that carried out the massacre of Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics just months earlier — tucked inside.

But the bombs failed to explode. They were discovered after the two cars on Fifth Avenue were towed, and the FBI learned about the third car at JFK and notified police. ..."

What is wrong with Israel

neasepanthers89 asks, "ok I get it, but honestly as a U.S soldier I just want to know, wtf is so WRONG about supporting Israel??? I am a STRONG supporter of israel, and their democratic system, and their way of life... they are a GREAT allie, why put so much effort into these videos???"

My answer:
Israel discriminates against Israeli citizens who are not members of the privileged religion and it brutalizes and kills (see these 4 posts for examples:
  1. What an Israeli soldier testified
  2. Physicians for Human Rights USA, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and the Israeli human rights group B'Tselem all confirm the Israeli policy of targeting civilians
  3. Zionist Jews killed OTHER JEWS
  4. Israel Does Target Civilians and Always Has)
in its ongoing crime of ethnic cleansing and illegal land grabs.

  • Below is part of Jennifer Loewenstein's answer to a question in which the interviewer, Podur, mentions that Israel is hailed as 'the only democracy in the middle east.'

    "Whenever I hear the statement that Israel is 'the only democracy in the Middle East' I marvel yet again at the power of mythology and miseducation ... Israel is, by definition, a Jewish State. As such, it cannot be simultaneously democratic. It is not a state "ruled by the people" since one fifth of its population is not Jewish and therefore prevented by law from acquiring full citizenship. There is the additional fact that Israel rules over four million Palestinians in the West Bank, Gaza Strip, and annexed East Jerusalem. That these people are denied even the superficial vestiges of democratic government is undeniable.

    There are numerous concrete examples of the undemocratic nature of Israeli laws, including the prohibition on land ownership for non-Jews, or of running for political office if you espouse certain views such as that Israel should become truly democratic by being the state of all its citizens. There is the sobering and little known fact that 700 Arab villages in Israel (not the Occupied Territories) are unrecognized by the government. As a result, the inhabitants of these villages have no municipal services, are not included in government censuses, and crucially, are not allowed to vote. They must, however, pay taxes. That these villages are among the poorest and most backward areas in the country (in terms of literacy and birth/death rates, etc.) can be easily surmised.

    Widespread discrimination against Arabs exists in all of the professions and at all levels of society. Arabs are underrepresented in academia, in medicine, law, politics, and business. Arab Israelis are among the poorest of the country's population. They are denied key benefits, such as a "retirement" equivalent because they do not serve in the country's military services --indeed are prevented from doing so.

    Social and economic discrimination is, of course, anti-democratic, but is in one respect the least of the problems. We know from our own history how Black Americans were --and to a great extent are-- treated, not to mention other ethnic, religious, and political groups within our society. The fact is though, that there are and were mechanisms for internal change. Civil Disobedience is possible in Israel, to an extent. An Affirmative-Action-type program also exists in Israel for Arab Israelis, and yet, as long as the state remains "Jewish" the successes of such a program will be limited. What will happen when, as current demographic trends suggest, the Arab population --not only in Israel but in the Occupied Territories-- begins to outnumber the Jewish population? If the prevailing Israeli state ideology continues, the consequences for Arab Israelis and Palestinians of this natural population shift could be catastrophic. Some might say that such a comment is alarmist; those familiar with current and long-term policies both in the Territories and within Israel understand too well that programs such as "Transfer" in which the Arab populations are forcibly expelled from the region altogether are neither extreme nor unrealizable.

    The idea of turning Israel into a single, binational, democratic state has been virtually abandoned by everyone. In part this is because of the unwillingness to accept a truly democratic state, and in part this is because of the unwillingness to accept a secular state. Israel, as has already been noted, is a Jewish state. For some, this is still at least partly a religious term. For most, however, it is an ethnic-ideological term precluding the admission of a Palestinian "co-culture" and, more importantly, of joint Jewish-Palestinian rule.

    ... the Occupied Territories: the bombings, the shootings, the destruction of civilian homes and businesses, the indiscriminate murder of children and adults, the ubiquitous checkpoints arbitrarily restricting all movement, the walls of "separation", the electric-wire fences, the nightly war outside the windows of people's homes, the 24-hour curfews, the endless power-cuts, the water-shortages, the food shortages, the growing dependence on international food aid as the economies disintegrate, as poverty reaches the 80% mark and unemployment rivals that." - Jennifer Loewenstein, Znet article: Jenin, Lebanon, and the only democracy in the Middle East

    This is another good article: Israeli Repression and the Language of Liars: "I’m sorry, but I am over it. As a Jew, I am over it. And if my language seems too harsh here, that’s tough. Because it’s nothing compared to the sickening things said by Israeli leaders throughout the years. [see article for examples] ... democracy? the term is repeatedly used to describe Israel -- as in 'the only democracy in the Middle East.' This, despite the fact that Israel has no constitution; despite the fact that Israel is defined as the state of the Jewish people, providing special rights and privileges to anyone in the world who is Jewish and seeks to live there, over and above longtime Arab residents. This, despite the fact that Israel bars any candidate from holding office who thinks the country should be a secular, democratic state with equal rights for all. This, despite the fact that non-Jews are restricted in terms of how much land they can own, and in which places they can own land at all, thanks to laws granting preferential treatment to Jewish residents." - Tim Wise

    Warmongers who sold you the Iraq war are pushing for a war with Iran.

    See video: Warmongers who sold you the Iraq war, are pushing for a war with Iran. "Leon Panetta, said he believed Iran was pursuing nuclear weapons -- contrary to the opinion of the intelligence community he is about to lead," that is DANGEROUS! Please pass this video on to others, we need to expose their lies to millions of Americans, not just thousands.


    Ahmadinejad was talking about a political change, he has made that clear: "As the Soviet Union disappeared, the Zionist regime will also vanish"
    He is talking about a regime change towards democracy, he is not talking about bombing. The example of the Soviet Union makes clear what he has been saying all along.

    The media is manipulating you

    Ahmadinejad wrote in his letter to Bush, "are we to understand that allowing the original inhabitants of these lands - inside and outside Palestine - whether they are Christian, Muslim or Jew, to determine their fate, runs contrary to principles of democracy, human rights and the teachings of prophets?" THE MEDIA DIDN'T REPORT THAT PART OF HIS LETTER!

    Hamas is in agreement with basically the rest of world

    The United States and Israel have been rejecting the two-state settlement solution, a solution to the peace process which has been agreed to by basically the whole world. Unlike the United States and Israel, Hamas is in agreement with basically the rest of world in calling for this two-state settlement solution and Hamas has done so publicly, repeatedly, and explicitly. This fact is omitted by Obama and other politicians, a fact Chomsky points out:
    "Omitted are the inconvenient facts that the US-Israel are not only dedicated to the destruction of any viable Palestinian state, but are steadily implementing those policies. Or that unlike the two rejectionist states, Hamas has called for a two-state settlement in terms of the international consensus: publicly, repeatedly, explicitly." - Obama on Israel-Palestine, Noam Chomsky, chomsky.info, January 24, 2009

    "Zionist alleged actions"

    The Youtuber going by the name "israelfnp" posts on my channel page complaining, "I see you know plenty about individual Zionist alleged actions against the Arabs who had declared war on the Jews since 1922 and before, RP. But the question is, do you give a rat's ass about any of the atrocities the Arabs committed to innocent Jews? No? Okay then."

    [ The "fnp" in "israelfnp" stands for "facts not propaganda" if you can believe that.]

    I reply:

    AND against Jews, israelfnp, AND against Jews. I talk about "Zionist alleged actions" AGAINST JEWS TOO.  And let me add: "Rabbi Shonfeld quotes the Zionist leader Yitzhak Greenbaum, who, after the war, stated: "When they asked me, couldn't you give money out of the United Jewish Appeal funds for the rescue of Jews in Europe, I said, 'NO!' and I say again 'NO!' . . . one should resist this wave which pushes the Zionist activities to secondary importance." And israelfnp, don't give me this crap: "do you give a rat's ass about ..." Do you deny there's suppression of Zionist crimes? Do you deny that the media treat Zionism and Israel differently than other topics? *

    Evidence of early Zionists' murderous refusal of a peaceful coexistence with the Palestinians is perhaps the most dramatic when it involves the killing of Jewish civilians. One of the victims on the list was Jacob de Haan, a Dutch Jew, killed for the "crime" of attempting to work out a peaceful solution between the new settlers and the local Palestinians in 1921. Their own records reveal them saying "another reason for assassinating him was that he was a homosexual."

    If you are concerned about Jews then you should respect the history of Jews who actually did stand for justice. Some paid with their lives for insisting that racism is wrong. Zionists killed OTHER JEWS who dared point out what I am saying. The Hagana archives contain the names of 40 JEWS who were killed by Irgun and the Stern Group (Jewish terrorist groups). Look at the example of the anti-Zionist native Jewish inhabitant of Palestine who was assassinated as he left his synagogue in June 1924 by two Haganah agents (Jewish terrorists). As early as 1924 these sick racist Zionists killed Jews because they stood in the way of their racist plan. Even a religious Jew was targeted by Zionists as he left his synagogue. Noam Chomsky, The Fateful Triangle: The United States, Israel and the Palestinians, p. 165

    * "Hitchens wanted to choose his words carefully because talk of a Jewish lobby is another one of those dangerous topics, it's dangerous for Jews because it feeds the imaginations of real anti-Semites who believe in a world wide Jewish conspiracy. It's dangerous for those who would discuss Jewish political influence because they risk the charge of anti-Semitism. It's not like when you talk about lobbying organizations for say immigrants or the disabled or the Saudi Government for that matter. History, sensitivity and politics make talk of Israel and its supporters different and a lot more complicated. I'm John Donvan for Nightline in Washington." -broadcast 4/17/02 ABC's Nightline

    Comments I post on my channel page disappear

    MANY TIMES, comments I post on my channel page disappear. Here is another one that I tried to repost (the original did stay but I reposted it because "Israelfnp" is playing a game pretending that I don't respond to him) Here is my response:

    israelfnp, you keep posting falsehoods like "Hamas did nothing to crack down" on rockets. I posted a reply debunking it and you ignored it:

    The fact is Hamas not only DIDN'T launch any rockets until Israel broke the truce, they arrested people who did. "Hamas arrested three Palestinians who fired rockets into Israel from the Gaza Strip." "Al Aqsa said it launched two Qassam rockets at the western Negev in retaliation for the Israel Defense Force's killing of an unarmed member of the group as he tried to cross a border fence into Israel earlier in the day. His death marked the first fatality along the Israel-Gaza border since the beginning of the Egypt-brokered truce on June 19." Mark Regev, the Israeli government spokesman, ADMITS Hamas fired no rockets at Israel during the cease fire June to November 4th 2008. An IICC document provided by the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs ADMITS the same thing.

    President Obama, do the right thing!

    New Video:
    President Obama, do the right thing! Appointing pro-Israeli hawks isn't change we can believe in.
    A Dec, 2008 article in Haaretz mentions Kurtzer's background:
    "President-elect Barack Obama is considering the appointment of Daniel Kurtzer, former American Ambassador to Egypt (1997-2001) and Israel (2001-2005), to become his administration's presidential envoy to the Middle East, a senior Israeli diplomatic source said this week."

    "Biases"? The Real Issue is: Is It Accurate or Not?

    Janprops, you complained about me citing Richard Falk, United Nations special rapporteur for human rights in the Occupied Territories, arguing that, "biases can steer even the most genius people into the hole of stupidity." As Falk says in the video I posted, "the real issue is: is what I've said in the reports and what I've written true or not, is it accurate or not?" And it is true, mainstream media has apparently mislead you by not presenting the facts. Is that what the problem is? Are you so unfamiliar with these things that you think people who simply state these facts must "blindly hate Israel?" I think you're too eager to dismiss what you don't want to hear that you claim people have "biases" when they report on what Israel is doing, about the ongoing cruelty and unlawfulness of the Gaza blockade imposed by Israel. Falk, who is Jewish, explained that, "such a policy of collective punishment, initiated by Israel to punish Gazans for political developments within the Gaza strip, constitutes a continuing flagrant and massive violation of international humanitarian law as laid down in Article 33 of the Fourth Geneva Convention."

    I thought a previous post made it clear that the media is not telling you the whole story. See how Israel mistreated Falk. Notice how mainstream media was unwilling to report what Israel did to Falk? Why didn't they interview him? And it was Israel which broke the cease-fire, why is nearly all mainstream media not making that clear? (CNN's Rick Sanchez mentioned it yet the media trend is still to play the game that it wasn't Israel who broke the ceasefire, even on CNN they still play that game!)

    Stephen Shalom has written a good article which answers many questions (over 30 questions) about what Israel is doing to Gaza. You questioned if Israel can still be considered an occupying power in Gaza, Shalom answers this in question 3, "Hasn't Israel withdrawn from Gaza, thereby ending its occupation?":

    The Israeli withdrawal did not end the occupation. As John Dugard, the UN's then special rapporteur on the Occupied Palestinian Territories, noted in 2006:
    Statements by the Government of Israel that the withdrawal ended the occupation of Gaza are grossly inaccurate. Even before the commencement of 'Operation Summer Rains,' following the capture of Corporal Shalit, Gaza remained under the effective control of Israel. This control was manifested in a number of ways. Israel retained control of Gaza's air space, sea space and external borders. Although a special arrangement was made for the opening of the Rafah border crossing to Egypt, to be monitored by European Union personnel, all other crossings remained largely closed.... The actions of IDF [Israeli Defense Force] in respect of Gaza have clearly demonstrated that modern technology allows an occupying Power to effectively control a territory even without a military presence. [John Dugard, Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories occupied since 1967, report transmitted by the Secretary General, "Situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories occupied since 1967," UN General Assembly doc. A/61/470, Sept. 27, 2006.]
    On November 20, 2008, Human Rights Watch wrote to Israeli prime minister Ehud Olmert, stating, among other things,
    "Even though Israel withdrew its permanent military forces and settlers in 2005, it remains an occupying power in Gaza under international law because it continues to exercise effective day-to-day control over key aspects of life in Gaza." [Human Rights Watch, "Letter to Olmert: Stop the Blockade of Gaza," Nov. 20, 2008.]
    If Israel had truly withdrawn from Gaza, then Israel could not prohibit Gaza from trading by sea or air with other nations, bar people from sailing or flying in to or out of Gaza, overfly Gazan airspace or patrol its coastal waters, or declare "no go zones" within Gaza. Israel also controls Gaza's Population Registry and collects import duties on any goods it allows into Gaza.

    Why did Obama feel the need to appease hard core Zionists at AIPAC?

    Why did Obama feel the need to appease hard core Zionists at AIPAC by making such a hawkish declaration about Jerusalem? Did Obama write that part of his speech himself? And if not, who did?* SEE UPDATE

    Obama was so eager to please AIPAC that he said, "Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel, and it must remain undivided" but the next day he backed away from his hard core Zionist statement having a campaign adviser clarify his position.

    The Jerusalem Post pointed out that Obama had "staked out some hawkish positions, declaring that 'Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel, and it must remain undivided' ... to rousing applause from the 7,000-plus attendees at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee policy conference."

    The day after making that outrageous declaration at the AIPAC meeting, Obama backed away from it. The Jerusalem Post reported on how top Zionists were pleased with Obama's declaration at the AIPAC meeting and didn't like him backing away from it, "Morton Klein, president of the Zionist Organization of America and another Jewish activist who had originally lauded Obama's statement, now called the candidate's words 'troubling.'"

    "Many on the right of the political spectrum among America's Jews welcomed Obama's remarks at AIPAC, but the clarification of his position left several cold."

    What they didn't like is the Obama campaign now saying he wouldn't rule out "the city also serving as the capital of a Palestinian state or Palestinian sovereignty over Arab neighborhoods."

    A few of my posts have disappeared too.

    janprops asked, "hey I wrote more in between, where did that go? Did you delete it? " and "I wrote more stuff, why does it keep disappearing?" And janprops posted this, "that's not fair,I wrote more but it doesn't get posted every time I press Post Comment"

    I tried to reply with this post: "No. A few of my posts have disappeared too. Some sort of glitch I don't know? I actually captured video of it happening to me, I probably should upload that to show others. I wish Youtube would fix or do what needs to be done so all posts remain if we want them. " BUT THAT DIDN'T STAY EITHER!

    (This is about the posts at my YouTube channel page)

    Here is another thing that I could not get posted without it disappearing:
    Here's another attempt at posting my message: I'm using 'stoplyingtous' when using wifi, israelfnp. So you're agreeing with me that jimiydoorshamelech lied and now you're asking for more examples?

    War Crimes such as Indiscriminate Killings, Massacres and Rapes

    "Commenting on the founding of Israel, Senior Lecturer of Military History in the IDF Aryeh Yitzhaki says, "a generation has passed, and it is now possible to face the ocean of lies in which we were brought up. In almost every conquered village in the War of Independence, acts were committed, which are defined as war crimes, such as indiscriminate killings, massacres and rapes." Yitzhaki is cited in the Israeli paper, Ha'ir, by Guy Erlich in his May 6, 1992 article, "Not Only Deir Yassin." Deir Yassin was an Arab village whose inhabitants were massacred by Zionist militia in 1948" - The Witchhunts Continue, Columbia University and the New Anti-Semitism
    By M. Junaid Alam

    "Officer Moshe apparently understood what had happened, conducted a quick debriefing, and afterward, in the dining room, was heard to say that "three soldiers raped the Arab girl." He ordered her to be brought to the staff hut. ... Sergeant Michael asked the platoon commander what to do with her. Officer Moshe ordered him to execute the girl.
    ... I took the Arab female captive. On the first night the soldiers abused her and the next day I saw fit to remove her from the world.

    Signed: Moshe, second lieutenant."
    - 'I saw fit to remove her from the world' By Aviv Lavie and Moshe Gorali haaretz.com

    "On October 29, 2003, a leading Israeli daily, Ha'aretz, reported a rape-murder that occurred more than fifty years ago at Nirim, an Israeli military outpost in the Negev. The victim was a Palestinian girl, in her early or mid-teens, or younger; the perpetrators of this crime were members of the Israeli Defense Force. Six days later, The Guardian also reported this crime, but US papers did not think this was news that is fit for print. In the United States, the media prefers to shield Israel from adverse notice." - Voiding the Palestinians An Allegory by M. Shahid Alam

    Zionist ideology and militaristic strategy to control all of Palestine

    "The picture changes when history matters. Treating Israeli war crimes as historically detached events, unrelated to its Zionist ideology and militaristic strategy to control all of Palestine, becomes more transparent each day." - Gaza: History Matters by Elaine C. Hagopian

    Hagopian points out that Israel rejects "accepting Palestinian rights under international law." Yes, that's true. And notice how mainstream media ignores this too. This is a very important issue. More people need to know these things. American TV viewers need to know about Israeli Violations of International Law and about the fact that there are Jews speaking out against Israeli war crimes. We need to reach more people.

    Israel continues bombing Gaza despite UN ceasefire call

    Israel continues bombing Gaza despite UN ceasefire call

    "Reuters reports that despite the resolution, Israel gave no indication that it would heed the UN's call for a cease-fire."

    "The Associated Press reports that the UN resolution, which passed the Security Council 14 votes to 0, calls for "an immediate, durable and fully respected cease-fire, leading to the full withdrawal of Israeli forces from Gaza." The United States, Israel's principal ally, abstained from the vote, though US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said the US "fully supports" the resolution." - Israel continues bombing Gaza despite UN ceasefire call

    This time the US didn't veto, it abstained. "Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice cast the sole abstention but said the United States supports the text and objectives of the resolution." - As U.S. Abstains, U.N. Security Council Calls for Cease-Fire

    Open Letter to Israeli Soldiers: Jews call on Israeli soldiers to stop War Crimes

    See video and pass it on: Open Letter to Israeli Soldiers: Jews call on Israeli soldiers to stop War Crimes

    Jews call on Israeli soldiers to stop war crimes

    We Jews in the international community call upon Israeli soldiers to raise the Black Flag of Illegality over the operations against the people of Gaza.

    We refuse to remain silent while Israeli leaders force Israeli soldiers to commit war crimes: crimes against humanity for which they will one day be called to account. Israeli soldiers of conscience can, and must, stop this dangerous, illegal, and immoral war.

    This criminal activity does nothing to advance the health and welfare of Jews. Rather, from Sderot to Sydney, from Ashkelon to Amsterdam, we will all benefit when there is justice for Palestinians.

    Therefore, we call on you to use all measures possible to stop these atrocities against the Palestinian people. Flagrantly illegal orders must not simply be disobeyed, but actively and effectively opposed.

    We members of the international Jewish community call on you, the Israeli soldiers of conscience, to halt the Israeli war machine, which only you can, and must, do.

    Hundreds more people?

    In a comment to my video Israel Attacks Gaza, Silence from Mainstream Media about Israeli Violations of International Law, a YouTuber called You4test posted this in a comment, "how many israelis have been dead by the so-called hamas rocket attacks? only 6 israeli died? how about palestinian "550+". Clearly proves who is the victim of war. Even the CNN and C-Span exposed Israel's crimes." Replying to You4test, aricane54 argues, "first of all, wow you couldnt be less informed. Your looking at how many have died by rockets in israel SINCE this war began. Hundreds more people have died by hamas rockets since 2006, way before this war began."

    In response to aricane54's erroneous argument I wrote, "aricane54, YOU ARE SERIOUSLY MISINFORMED! "hundreds of people" have NOT died by Hamas rockets since 2006! NOT EVEN CLOSE!

    Here's the facts: Up until Israel's current attack of Dec. 27th, rocket and mortar attacks since late 2005 have killed 10 Israelis. During the 6 month truce, no Israelis were killed. After the Israeli attacks were launched on Dec. 27th, 4 have been killed.

    Aricane54 questioned what I wrote, "representativepress, you think that 10 israelis have been killed by rockets? have you even followed the situation in israel before this war started? what about the rockets fired at sderot, ashkelon, beer sheva, only 10? cmon, lets do a little better research than that. Second of all, it doesnt matter how many were killed, it matters that the rockets were fired. It gave israel an incentive to attack, so maybe they didnt get lucky and didnt hit anyone with a rocket..they were still fired"

    I replied that, "I write that because that is the statistic which FAIR uses and they are quoting theisraelproject. Now PLEASE stop for a minute and think about how distorted a view the media has given you of the situation with Israel and Gaza. Could you at least consider reexamining what it is you assume you know? I have to tell you, the mass media has mislead you."

    NYT not fair and balanced

    Jonathan Schwarz makes the point that the New York Times is not fair and balanced when it comes to reporting on Israel and Gaza. Schwarz gives an example of how a slideshow of Israel/Palestine pictures on the NYT website misrepresents what is going on. He notes that, "During the current conflict, the ratio of dead Palestinians to dead Israelis is about 100-1." (Yet you wouldn't get that impression from the NYT slideshow, the NYT is presenting an extremely distorted picture of what Israel is doing.)

    Commenting on Schwarz's blog entry, someone called "Fritz" tries to make excuses for the NYT's bias: "Maybe someone at the NY Times remembers the photos of Palestinian celebrations on 9/11."

    And of course no one remembers photos of Israelis celebrating the 9/11 attacks right here in America because the media didn't publish them. A witness in New Jersey said she saw 5 Israelis (Sivan Kurzberg, Paul Kurzberg, Yaron Shmuel, Oded Ellner and Omer Marmari) taking video or photos of themselves smiling with the World Trade Center burning in the background. These men were arrested and their cameras were seized. I have seen videos and pictures seized by police shown on TV before, why not in this case? One of the photographs developed by the FBI showed Sivan Kurzberg holding a lit lighter in the foreground, with the smoldering wreckage in the background, said Steven Noah Gordon, a lawyer for the five Israelis. Why didn't the media want to show the American public the images of Israelis celebrating RIGHT HERE AMONG US? Also, why did mainstream media keep silent about it?

    It took months before it was even mentioned on mainstream TV and when it finally was mentioned, the pictures of the Israelis were still not shown. When it was mentioned, it was in the context of explaining it away, they broadcast their lawyer's excuse that it was simply immaturity! No such explanation was given for the Palestinians who were for the most part literally immature because they were actually children.celebrating palestinians The Israelis were adult men here in our country. The mainstream media suppressed this story. Six months later ABC mentions it in an attempt to explain it away. The media reported the excuse given by the Israeli's lawyers which was to say it was simply immaturity! "... no one has been able to find a good explanation for why they may have been smiling with the towers of the World Trade Center burning in the background. Both the lawyers for the young men and the Israeli Embassy chalk it up to immature conduct."

    A woman who watched the Israelis celebrating through binoculars said to ABC News that the men were taking video or photos of themselves with the World Trade Center burning in the background. What struck Maria were the expressions on the men's faces. "They were like happy, you know … They didn't look shocked to me. I thought it was very strange," she said.

    And besides all that, Fritz's excuse does not justify the NYT bias which, as Schwarz points out, has been going on for forty years.

    Solutions? This is something that could really help the "peace process" in the Middle East

    Want to REALLY help the "peace process" achieve real peace AND justice? How about respecting the Right of Return like Israel promised to do as a condition of being admitted into the UN? (It would definitely remove the anger from millions and remove any motivation for violence from countless people.) Israel was accepted into the United Nations on condition that it accept the Right of Return of the Palestinian refugees. Admission of Israel to membership in the United Nations (General Assembly Resolution 273 of May 11, 1949 ) requires Israel to comply with General Assembly Resolution 194 of December 11, 1948 and Israel stated it agreed to comply with this resolution. But of course they immediately refused because the racist agenda of the Zionists is to remove as many non-Jews as possible.

    Israel Attacks Gaza, Silence from Mainstream Media about Israeli Violations of International Law

    See Video: Israel Attacks Gaza, Silence from Mainstream Media about Israeli Violations of International Law

    " It seemed that Israel wanted to teach me, and more significantly, the UN a lesson: there will be no cooperation with those who make strong criticisms of Israel's occupation policy. After being denied entry, I was put in a holding room with about 20 others experiencing entry problems. At this point, I was treated not as a UN representative, but as some sort of security threat, subjected to an inch-by-inch body search and the most meticulous luggage inspection I have ever witnessed.

    I was separated from my two UN companions who were allowed to enter Israel and taken to the airport detention facility a mile or so away. I was required to put all my bags and cell phone in a room and taken to a locked tiny room that smelled of urine and filth. It contained five other detainees and was an unwelcome invitation to claustrophobia. I spent the next 15 hours so confined, which amounted to a cram course on the miseries of prison life, including dirty sheets, inedible food and lights that were too bright or darkness controlled from the guard office."- My expulsion from Israel by Richard Falk

    (Falk issued a Dec. 9th statement about Gaza and was expelled from Israel on Dec. 15 after arriving on the 14th. Israel began it's huge bombing attack on Dec. 27)

    "It is Dr. Falk's responsibility to report to the UN on conditions in the occupied territories. Israel is blocking him from carrying out this job. In an article that reads as if it rolled off the computers in Israel’s Government Press Office (no quotes by anyone friendly to Falk’s point of view, for instance), The New York Times, tells us Dr. Falk “has long been criticized in Israel for what many Israelis say [emphasis mine] are unfair and unpalatable views.” The blind attribution is typical." - Richard Falk, Israel and the New York Times, By Ellen Cantarow

    (After Israel began it's recent attack, Falk issued a statement on Dec. 27):
    "The Israeli airstrikes on the Gaza Strip represent severe and massive violations of international humanitarian law as defined in the Geneva Conventions, both in regard to the obligations of an Occupying Power and in the requirements of the laws of war." - Israel's War Crimes, by Richard Falk, United Nations special rapporteur for human rights in the Occupied Territories
