Flotilla of Humanity - Gaza Cries.....

Tiring is not coming back from a holiday and from the bliss of ignorance by not having to keep up with the worldly events, but tiring is coming back from a holiday and from the bliss of ignorance by not having to keep up with worldly events TO THIS....Nine dead as Israeli storms aid ship; sparks outcry ...sigh....don't you feel as jaded as me?

I may not be a big fan of the Arabs nor the Jews, but I definitely am not a fan of the Zionist. Most of all, I am AGAINST THE LOSS OF ANY it Christians, Jewish, Buddhists, Atheists, Hindus, Muslims, even the people who embrace Ayah Pin's The Sky Kingdom...(well, at least the latter most believe in "making love and not war"....shame on the rest of the so called righteous people with individual reasons to believe that they are the only ones who deserves to live then go to heaven when they die....with the exception of Atheists who make their life simpler by not believing in any of it all...)

Then fingers point at each other, who started it first...same ol' same ol'...The world condemns the atrocities..yet, another atrocity to add to the long lists of atrocities...
Israel claims the IDF were attacked first. This video was scattered in the net;
(For FB users, kindly click on link to view these videos)

I find it amazing that the narrators to this video can identify the metallic components in those rod looking things, not to mention being able to identify who's beating who in that shot, from that distance. It would be helpful if the footage has a time and date on it. Even Internet amateurs know about video editing...I also find it odd that the Israeli dispenses army climbing down the helicopter, after the extension of invitation made.

Here's an interview to get an American perspective...obviously they're a little bit distracted and busy with the BP oil spill. Even without the oil spill, Israel is having Washington's balls squeezed, so it's a bit difficult to react or say something when one's balls is being squeezed. The last President of United States that hadn't had his balls squeezed, (well not by the oligarchies anyway) was JFK and he was assassinated...

But I find this video most interesting because, they've interviewed an Israeli MP who is an activist and was on board of the ship; (it's a bit tricky comprehending her accent though).

Let's hear this very interesting interview by CNN with the co founder of the International Free Gaza Movement, Greta Berlin ;

I was hoping to hear what Greta had to say about "Let's talk about what the Israelis came on board with..." when she got cut off by the interviewer.

And here's the response by the Israeli Spokesman;

As usual, the guilt card will be used by the Israelis..."The whole world is against us.."....oh, boo hiphen hoo...who's the one with the nukes eh?

Netanyahu "lambasted world leaders for criticising the ships' takeover, accusing some of holding Israel to what he called a double standard and questioning its right to defence"

Man, since when iron rods became WMD? Someone ought to tell him the definition of defense do not constitute spraying live bullets to people who uses sticks and catapults.

I am proud though that joint Malaysian-Irish team on board of the defiant Rachel Corrie proceeded to break into Gaza. Ram Kardigasu and Matthias Chang are amongst them on board. Let us all pray, in our different ways, for their safety.

Above: I reckon the guy smelling his own armpit would be Ram Kardigasu (or maybe not) and of course, beside him is Matthias Chang. Funny how little coverage these two are getting when they are on to some good deeds....

HERE is the legal aspect of the attack. Some of the excerpts ;

" Under the international law of the sea, the criminal law of the "flag state" of a vessel, that is, the country of its registration, primarily governs any crimes committed on that vessel.
In this instance, Turkey was the "flag state" and is entitled to prosecute any person suspected of committing criminal offences on board, whether for murder or assault or other relevant crimes under Turkish law. Following investigation, that may also include any unlawful use of force against Israeli soldiers by passengers on board the flotilla. Self-defence under Turkish law may be available to particular defendants on the facts of individual cases. In addition, Israeli law may also apply to the conduct of the Israeli soldiers, but Israel has no right to apply its criminal law to non-Israelis in the jurisdictional space of a Turkish ship.

As Turkey buries its dead after Israel's raid on the Gaza flotilla, crucial questions arise about how international law enables the international community to deal with the fallout. Both the UN Security Council and the Human Rights Council have called for inquiries into the debacle, including whether there are were violations of the law and what can be done about it.

To focus first on the immediate harm – the deaths of nine Turkish citizens, and injuries to various others – the international law answer is at, first sight, fairly straightforward. Under the international law of the sea, the criminal law of the "flag state" of a vessel, that is, the country of its registration, primarily governs any crimes committed on that vessel.

In this instance, Turkey was the "flag state" and is entitled to prosecute any person suspected of committing criminal offences on board, whether for murder or assault or other relevant crimes under Turkish law. Following investigation, that may also include any unlawful use of force against Israeli soldiers by passengers on board the flotilla. Self-defence under Turkish law may be available to particular defendants on the facts of individual cases. In addition, Israeli law may also apply to the conduct of the Israeli soldiers, but Israel has no right to apply its criminal law to non-Israelis in the jurisdictional space of a Turkish ship.

Lots more info if you click on the above link.

I'd just like to point out an interesting fact though, regarding the relationship of Hamas and Israel. the reason for the blockade was that Israel was afraid that Hamas would smuggle in weapons via these international aids. It's kind of hilarious though,that Israel does not recognize Hamas as a political body, since the the Mossads were the ones responsible in creating the very organization they brand "terrorists", not to mention Hamas gained power via the famous democratic process. You can read it HERE, and HERE.

Please take note that there is a difference between Zionists and Jews. The orthodox Jews, were fighting against the existence of Zionist and the Israel state, long before the Arabs were at it.

I suggest we stop the hating and start the thinking. Listen to these videos and tell me that if the Muslims and the Jews pause from punching each others' face, maybe they can actually hear the puppet masters laughing from the arms profit they're gaining out of the war, not to mention what other agenda they have up their sleeves. If we refuse to engage in any form of aggression towards each other, instead, unite and go after the puppet master, won't this put an end to this endless war.

This letter shows the orthodox Jews, including Albert Einstein, had sent a letter, published in the New York Times December the 2nd 1948, expressing their concern regarding the new emerging Zionist Movement, who are using Judaism as core theme.

Currently, Israel citizens hold demonstrations against the IDF attack on the humanitarian flotilla;

Theodore Herzl, the man mentioned in the video, was the one who erected Zionist Movement.

Alan Hart, wrote a book, "Zionism, The Real Enemy of the Jews". HERE's some videos about it.

But let's go deeper. Ask ourselves, why was Herzl was so adamant about erecting a state smack right into the heart of their enemies, the Arabs, and succeeded in doing so, from outside of Philistine. Why Israel? Well folks, when it comes to Arabs and Jews, who knows what is the truth anymore, as both are capable of spinning their words..the truth is out there somewhere...along with the other mysteries in life like "Who killed JFK", "Are members of Malaysian Parliament Aliens from Roswell?", or " Is that real hair on samy's scalp?"

Here's a more encompassing way to look at the whole situation, I leave it to Alex Jones:




Video 4/4 :

Michael Savage's outlook

Here's more and HERE's Henning Mankell's version of the whole ordeal.

You know what would be the biggest blow to the AngloAmerican-Zionist Neocons responsible behind orchestrating these wars? It's when people like you and me walk out on our own ego that takes the form of Nationalism, Religion, Ideology or whatever disguise it has, and just refuse to engage in any violent activities. Kill the hatred instead. Of course that would put the army out of their jobs, but hey, I'm sure they wouldn't mind having any other job that gets them constantly laid and have home cook meals...I have a high degree of respect for the army, for their sacrifices they make. It's the authorities who toy with human lives that deserves punishment. War should be branded as an act of criminal.

Especially for the Muslims, who some may think killing is alright, there are verses that stresses on forgiveness and falling into war as a last resort. If Muslims are as smart as we claim to be, then naturally, war can be avoided. We should read the Quran and understand it's gist. Whilst there are people out there who make money out of toying with our ego and using religion as a tool to split the humankind, this can be deterred simply by understanding our own religion, and of course practicing it not as a genetically passed down phenomenon, but something we feel at our hearts and our minds to be true.

In Surah Al-An'am verse161, God said;

Say: "Come, I will rehearse what Allah hath (really) prohibited you from": join not anything as equal with Him; be good to your parents; kill not your children on a plea of want - We provide sustenance for you and for them - come not nigh to shameful deeds, whether open or secret; take not life, which Allah hath made sacred, except by way of justice and law: thus doth He command you, that ye may learn wisdom. "

Al Maidah 45 :

"We ordained therein for them: "Life for life, eye for eye, nose for nose, ear for ear, tooth for tooth, and wounds equal for equal." But if anyone remits the retaliation by way of charity, it is an act of atonement for himself. And if any fail to judge by (the light of) what Allah hath revealed, they are (no better than) wrong-doers."

I don't take sides in this war. I would feel equally sad if an innocent Jewish dies, as a consequence of injustice. I think it's high time for us to understand the gist of our religion. It's based on humanity, that's what makes us human. Any religion that goes against humanity, needs checking up. It's probably tampered with and let's do god a favour by doing what He constantly tells us to do...which is to use our brains. Don't just swallow what is served to us on whatever platter...because curiosity may kill the cat, but it's the non thinking state that kills a man...

[Pickthal 5:32]

"For that cause We decreed for the Children of Israel that whosoever killeth a human being for other than manslaughter or corruption in the earth, it shall be as if he had killed all mankind, and whoso saveth the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind. Our messengers came unto them of old with clear proofs (of Allah's Sovereignty), but afterwards lo! many of them became prodigals in the earth"

The Carpet Weavers

As I take a walk through the aging lane, there are moments when my mind succumbs to the idea that "Ignorance is Bliss". The discomfort of knowing mind boggling discoveries via reading sometimes can prove to be emotionally overwhelming.

I've been reading a book written by Robert Fisk, (an Independent journalist then writing for "The Times" and "The Independent"), titled " The Great War for Civilization; The Conquest Of The Middle East". (So okay, the book was written in the year of B.C of readers, but hey, I have the habit of buying books and reading them 2-3 years later...basically manipulating the 'better laid then never' phrasing....oops!! I meant, "better late then never" - the former works too).

My favorite by far is (still on page 163 of 1286....sigh..right now I'm staring at the snail, to get some inspiration from it....), the chapter on Iranian political struggles in the chapter "the carpet weavers". I have great admiration for the Iranian tenacity, not so much for the Islamic ideology though. Fisk pointed out how tenacious these Iranians were in putting back together the shredded papers seized from the American Embassy in Iran during the Khomeini Revolution, as they were weaving their authentic carpets. The former took them 6 years of numerous people working 6 days a week whilst the latter up to 10 years with the same capacity of people and time. 10 years of weaving one carpet...imagine that...most of us can't even stomach looking at face of the same spouse for 10 years, imagine staring at the same carpet everyday for 10 years!!!! Come to think of it, at least the carpet don't talk back...and of course, that is a totally different chapter altogether...

Back to the carpet weavers, Iranian people are known for their patience in achieving something, and therefore, anyone who are used to their culture, would not be surprised that it took them that long to topple the Shahs of Iran. Khomeini did it from outside of Iran. I will not talk about the hypocrisy of the US via the CIA, their role in toppling Mossadeq, a people elected Prime Minister (1951-53), in an act that is against the world preached democracy (when it suits their interest) because it is no longer news-worthy. The thing that bothers me is what happens after the revolution. It seems to me, that the Mullas act no differently then the people they worked hard to topple. Many "enemies" were prosecuted without a chance of a proper trial. The fate of the the people charged were at the hands of a bunch of Mullas who acted as judges. Seems that no one had escaped the death sentence once they were put on "trial".

Then my eyes was feasted upon a more mind boggling statement made by Sadegh Khalkhali, former Chief Justice of the Revolutionary Court, or more intimately known as "The Hanging Judge", in regards to the stoning sentence executed.

I quote a paragraph from what Fisk had written;

" I don't know if I approve of stoning, " Sadeq Khalkhali said, flashing a grin at us journalists and at a group of startled diplomats who had also been invited to the Qasr prison. 'But in the Koran, it is mentioned that those who commit adultery should be killed by stoning.' The Jojatolislam dug his little spoon into the melting white ice-cream, oblivious to the bare-headed prisoners who trudged past behind him, heaving barrels loaded with cauldrons of vegetable soup. ' We approve of anything the Koran says. What is the difference between killing people with stones and killing them with bullets? But throwing stones certainly teaches people a lesson.' Khalkhali modestly disowned responsibility for the Kerman stoning - his bearded public relations man informed us that a man called Fahin Kermani had taken this weighty decision - but he agreed that he had ordered some fresh executions that morning. Seven men had been lined up at one end of Jamshid gawked from a distance. Many of those who died had been convicted of drug offences, and it was in his role as chief of the Iranian anti - narcotics squad that the Hojatolislam had welcomed us to Qasr prison to view his latest haul of contraband. "

For starters, the word "I don't know if I approve of stoning" simply states that Khalkhali doubts God. I mean, who was he to approve or disapprove God's orders, assuming for a second that stoning to death is indeed God's order. But see, THAT's where the problem lies. Stoning to death is NOT stated anywhere in the Quran. Claiming it is, and getting away with it is really alarming!!

Then there's the statement; "What is the difference between killing people with stones and killing them with bullets. But throwing stones certainly teaches people a lesson." . I wonder if he learned his, just before he blew his last breath, most likely a slow and painful death, as that is what cancer does.

It is not just people like Khalkhali, who prided himself to be a man of God, it is infested in most human who had the first taste of power. Power given to people with a lot of hate and destructive virtue within their soul, results in massive lost of human lives. It is disturbing to witness how the sanctity of a human's life was not taken into consideration.

Have the humans really evolved at all? We pride ourselves as being "civilized" when all there really is, is history of human cruelty repeating itself over and over. The difference is just the method of killing and the excuses to do so. Those days people kill with bare hands, stick and stones. Now, we just dispense drones to do our job and call it high technology. If there's anything, it is the machines that have evolved, not so much of us so called humans. We get upset when we are categorized as animal kingdom, but truth is, that's what we are. Shameless creatures of destruction, crawling on the surface of the earth, causing massive destruction to our own species not to mention to the other animal kingdoms.

The only possible way any human may earn the title, is to do without killing. I agree that war should be criminalized. If we claim that we are "civilized", then we should be able to come up with better solutions than killing each other with super sleek excuses to justify our conscience.

I love the way George Carlin strip the facts to naked bare, and of course with a splash of humor to go with it. Frankly, I agree, here is what war is all about;

Dick-waving...that's what Nationalism and war is all about.......imagine the killing without the "Medal of Honor" to go along with it..well, those souldiers who killed won't be called a hero, instead, a "hit man". What you are to the world is who you choose to work with, and what terminology they give you. You won't be called a terrorist if you have the mainstream mass media at your hands to aid propaganda, even though you terrorize a country to get whatever agenda it is hiding behind the projected purposes....ironically, it had most of the time been oil and drugs. What difference is a nation who use killing to solve the killings? In what way is your taking away lives seem better than them taking away lives? The end product would still remain that the innocent people dies....How can you put on a poker face and tell the world that your killing is justified. More importantly, why should the human beings justify killing at all?

In the case of "The White Revolution", the "winning party" started lining up humans and shot them to death without a fair trial. They rounded up fornicators, adulterers, people who allegedly sell drugs without proper judicial process and just took their lives away with a simple gesture of pulling a trigger. How does that make them any better than the people they claimed to have been corrupted and cruel and needed to be toppled. They became the very people they displaced for whatever reason used to justify those killings. It is clear to us now, that power changes people's rationale, most of the time, we fail as human beings when power is at our hands. It could happen to you and me.

The most successful excuse to wage wars would be, Religion, Ideologies and Racism.

But are the politicians really to blame? After all, we put them there........listen to the wisdom of George Carlin again..

Hmm....we put those corrupted politicians's our fault!!! Well then, I guess we as a human being have the responsibility to ensure nobility of human kind begins from the man in the mirror and at home should we choose to procreate. The kids we put to this earth will grow up and be let loose into society are those who will be running the system in the future. We breed assholes, assholes are the ones who will take over the world. So remember, people who have no sense of humility, humanity, sense of duty and civics, have no business breeding.....think about that...
Ah well, I thought I'd throw in another video for bonus...enjoy this one...
