Ethics charges and legal motions are flying in Boulder City, thanks to an employee the city wanted gone. You may not think of Boulder City as a bubbling cauldron of political intrigue and conspiracies, but that’s what police chief Tom Finn alleged last April before — and after — he was fired. He alleged that a homogenous cluster of interconnected elites calls the shots in Boulder City, and says they wanted him gone because he was a burr under their saddle. They had no idea how much trouble he could cause.
“I think a federal agency needs to come in and just start issuing subpoenas,” Finn said.
THE Met spied on 17 justice campaigns for murder victims and those who died following police contact over 35 years, it was revealed yesterday.
Among those who were monitored are the family of Jean Charles de Menezes, who was shot dead by police in July 2005.
With the support and encouragement of the Howard led government of Australia. At least two Australian citizens were taken in the dark of night by the CIA, held in various countries and tortured, and then sent to Guantanamo Bay torture central and were held for years without charge and tortured again. Ultimately they were returned to Australia without being found guilty of any of the gossipy allegations which were leveled against them for part political purposes in Australia……………..KT
In what has been described as a watershed moment, a European court ruled Thursday that Poland enabled rendition and torture carried out by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency.
The ruling by the European Court of Human Rights marks the first court judgement on the CIA’s so-called “black sites,” secret offshore prisons where detainees are tortured.
Germany will monitor US and UK agents as part of its long discussed counter-espionage ’360 degree view’ plan, shifting its focus from China, Russia, and Iran, according to local media.
Two unnamed sources confirmed to Sueddeutsche Zeitung newspaper that Merkel’s chief of staff, Peter Altmaier, gave a green light for the step after negotiations with interior and foreign ministers.
A CRIMINAL investigation will be launched into allegations of a child abuse cover-up at a school linked to Sir Cyril Smith, it was revealed yesterday.
The Zionist propaganda is not unified and depends on audience. There are many tracts:
First tract: Propaganda directed toward Zionist society; this tract is achieved by disregarding opponent’s power and will, and it aims to reassure local community and diminish frightening.
In 2006, Lebanon’s Hezbollah strongly ‘shocked’ Zionist community due to unexpected performance during the war. Many Zionist intellectuals asked questions about the presence of Israel since thousands of Hezbollah fighters were able to stop Israeli invasion. Israeli Winograd Commission issued balanced report to assess performance of Israeli Army:
We found serious failings and shortcomings in the decision-making processes and staff-work in the political and the military echelons and their interface.
· We found serious failings and flaws in the quality of preparedness, decision-making and performance in the IDF high command, especially in the Army.·
State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf introduced the story to the press at today’s briefing, claiming that the US has secret evidence from “human intelligence information” that the attacks are taking place. The Pentagon concurred, saying such attacks have been going on “for several days.”
During the past several days, there has not been a single report out of Ukraine of an artillery strike against any of their military bases, anywhere in the country. The last such incident was two weeks ago, when rebels fired a BM-21 grad at a military base.
And this is Ukraine we’re talking about, which comes up with its own dubious stories of Russian attacks on a near daily basis. If Russia was carried out concerted shelling against Ukrainian military targets, Ukraine would be harping on about it constantly. They aren’t even alleging anything close to that is happening.
Oh that’s right. “ They hate us because we are free
For years, the term “suicide bombers” has been synonymous with terrorist attacks, especially in Israel. The idea of a martyr willing to give his life for a cause while taking out an “enemy” became a feature of modern conflict especially with resistance movements confronting modern armies.
Doesn’t Israel have a right to defend itself? Though it is hard for a question to be wrong, this is a dead wrong question even though it is the heart and soul of Israel’s defense of its attack on little Gaza.
It is also the basis of the U.S. assessment of the ongoing moral disaster. The Senate voted unanimously to answer the question in the affirmative while ignoring all other piercingly relevant circumstances. Never has a misplaced question had such prestige and high-level cachet.
Despite the conclusion by US intelligence that there is no evidence of Russian involvement in the destruction of the Malaysian airliner and all lives onboard, Washington is escalating the crisis and shepherding it toward war.
Twenty-two US senators have introduced into the 113th Congress, Second Session, a bill, S.2277, “To prevent further Russian aggression toward Ukraine and other sovereign states in Europe and Eurasia, and for other purposes.” https://beta.congress.gov/113/bills/s2277/BILLS-113s2277is.pdf The bill is before the Committee on Foreign Relations.
Note that prior to any evidence of any Russian aggression, there are already 22 senators lined up in behalf of preventing further Russian aggression.
This was probably someone innocently testing his new toy, but can we rule out a test-run of something nefarious, in light of Seattle Police Department request that people not use their cell phones for social media during this coming Saturday’s annual Torchlight Parade?
Today, on the fifth anniversary of the last increase in the minimum wage, the Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR) debuts a pay-cut clock to show how much, down to the second, minimum-wage workers continue to lose as long as the wage remains frozen at its current level.
The federal government is asking paramedics and firefighters to be on the lookout for “extremists” as part of a program that aims to uncover “suspicious activity.”
A bulletin released in March 2014 by the FBI, Department of Homeland Security and the National Counterterrorism Center, obtained this week by Public Intelligence, contains details of a program entitled “Emergency Medical Treatment Presents Opportunity for Discovery of Violent Extremist Activities.”
Now it is the year 2014. Now the western powers have a new villain to demonize. That is Vladamir Putin the President of Russia. He is a real enemy to the banking establishment of the west. The same Bankers own most of all media in newsprint, radio and television. They control the information they broadcast to the listeners and viewers. Now you can see why the media with the government is demonizing President Putin calling him a tyrant,a Nazi and a Dictator because they are accusing him of being the very thing the west is now trying to discredit him because he is a threat to the power structure of the globalist. Russia forming the B.R.I.C.S alliance is a rival to the western monopoly which can bring the system down.
At this point in Israel’s massacre in Gaza, almost 800 Palestinians have been slaughtered, overwhelmingly civilians, including 24% children. 34 Israelis have been killed, all but 2 of them soldiers.
Today, Israel bombed a marked UN school, for which it had the GPS coordinates, killing 15 and wounding at least 150 people. This is a repeat of Israeli terrorism against UN humanitarian facilities in Gaza in Israel’s 2009 Gaza massacre.
The leaders of Big Agriculture–Monsanto, DuPont, Syngenta–are determined that world’s populations remain ignorant about the serious health and environmental risks of genetically modified crops and industrial agriculture. Deep layers of deception and corruption underlie both the science favoring GMOs and the corporations and governments supporting them.
While many articles have debunked the myth that Israel is acting out of “self-defense,” very few have attempted to establish why Israel is continuing its assault on Palestine through Operation Protective Edge, aside from the supposition that Zionists have a fanatic penchant for drawing Palestinian blood. Behind the operation, behind the mass Israeli and U.S. propaganda attempting to justify the massacre, and behind the death of every child in Gaza is a conflict rarely discussed, an imperialist conflict and a contradiction that rests on Israel’s ambitions to appropriate and profit from Gaza’s natural gas resources.
New home sales during June really hit the skids, posting a 8% decline from May and a 11.5% drop from last June. In whole numbers, the print came at a paltry 406,000 annualized rate compared to Wall Street expectations of 475,000.
The interesting thing is not simply that the Keynesian Cool-Aid drinkers who pass for Wall Street economists got it wrong again. Actually, as can been seen clearly in the chart below from the Wall Street Journal, the June 2014 number for new home sales was exactly the same as the 400,000 number posted right after the financial crisis in the fall of 2008.
Ukraine has asked Russia to admit another wounded Ukrainian soldier to a Russian hospital, spokesman for Russia’s regional Border Guard Service branch Vasily Malayev said on Thursday.
Self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic leaders hope for direct gas supplies from Russia in the coming heating season, premier Marat Bashirov said on Thursday.
Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Thursday Turkey would push for Israel to be tried at an international criminal court if it kept up its assault on Gaza and he accused the Jewish state of “spitting blood.”
More than half of Britons say they have been hit with extra fees on their credit cards, bank accounts mortgage or insurance in the last year. Two thirds say lenders and insurers are tricking them with dubious and difficult to compare headline prices.
A survey conducted by the consumer campaign group Which? showed that 68 percent of 2,000 Britons polled feel that companies use additional charges to trick them.
The special relationship between Israel and the United States goes deep…real deep. It’s based on security, conflict and most of all money. Most of it for the Israeli military. But with over 200 killed in Gaza just this July and the Israeli military’s long list human rights abuses, is this special relationship worth the price?
“Nearly 300 innocent lives were taken—men, women, children, infants—who had nothing to do with the crisis in Ukraine. Their deaths are an outrage of unspeakable proportions.” – President Barack Obama on the plane crash in Ukraine.
“War is tough, and I said that publicly and I’ll say it again. We defend Israel’s right to do what it is doing …” – Secretary of State John Kerry, asked about slaughter of several hundred civilians in Gaza.
Stuart Littlewood reminds us that long before Hamas’s rockets closed Ben-Gurion airport – itself built on stolen land – Israel had destroyed Gaza’s airport, built with international aid and destroyed without a whimper.
Journalist Mai Bei, (Yahoo News) is reminding America of its recent dark past vis-à-vis that longtime rogue agency the CIA’s global torture operations during that rogue regime of the Bush administration.
The plot thickens with the Senate Intelligence Committee strongly in favor of declassifying its five years in the making, 6,700 page report bringing to light in graphic criminal detail the plethora of Geneva Convention and international law violations committed by overzealous CIA henchmen in their quest to torture information out of thousands of detainees the world over “fighting” America’s so called war on terror. Today’s article attempts to create high drama Washington-style by hyping up anticipation of an executive-legislative showdown between how much of the CIA’s dastardly deeds should be disclosed to the waiting American public.
US Secretary of State John Kerry returned to Egypt after a short trip to Israel to discuss the Egyptian ceasefire initiative. Kerry had traveled to Tel Aviv after meeting Egyptian President Abdel Fatah el Sisi in Cairo and then returned in the same day.
PROPOSAL WOULD PLACE POST OFFICES IN COMPETITION WITH PAYDAY LENDING COMPANIES SERVING “LOW-INCOME COMMUNITIES, INCLUDING RURAL AND INNER-CITY AREAS”
Whenever the Israeli army drafts the reserves — which are made up of ex-soldiers — there are dissenters, resisters, and AWOLers among the troops called to war. Now that Israel has sent troops to Gaza again and reserves are being summoned to service, dozens are refusing to take part.
Like an early Google Street View, the French movie pioneers brothers Auguste and Louis Lumière sent cameramen over to Palestine in 1896 to shoot the first moving images of life in the region.
At this time, Palestine was a remnant of the Ottoman Empire with around 500,000 inhabitants—30,000 of whom lived in Jerusalem. 85% of the population were Muslim, 10% Christian and 5% were Jewish. All were subjects of the Sultan of Constantinople.
This incredible footage comes from the 93 reels recovered by Lobster Films, a film preservation company based in Paris, in 2007. Serge Bromberg, the company’s co-founder said:
So much for “There never was a Palestine.”
Israel attempted to use tapes of former US president Bill Clinton’s steamy conversations with intern Monica Lewinsky to leverage the release of Jonathan Pollard, a new book on the Clinton family’s political enterprises has claimed. In the book, titled “Clinton Inc: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine,” author Daniel Halper relies on on-the-record interviews with former officials together with a close analysis of documents termed “the Monica Files” to paint a salacious – and uncomplimentary – picture of one of the most prominent political families in the United States.
“If I was an Arab leader I would never sign an agreement with Israel. It is normal, we took their land. It is true that God promised it to us, but how could that interest them? Our God is not theirs. There has been Anti-Semitism, the Nazis, Hitler, Auschwitz, but was that their fault? They see but one thing: we come and we have stolen their country. Why should they accept that?”
That statement — which would certainly outrage the current government of Israel and most of its supporters — was made by David Ben Gurion (1886-1973), revered as the father of the State of Israel.
Employees of the Russian Emergencies Ministry have offered help for over 600 Ukrainian refugees, the ministry’s spokesman, Alexander Drobyshevsky, said on Thursday.
Nearly one in four children in the United States lives in a family below the federal poverty line, according to figures presented in a new report by the Annie E. Casey Foundation.
A total of 16.3 million children live in poverty, and 45 percent of children in the US live in households whose incomes fall below 200 percent of the federal poverty line.
The faction of the Ukrainian Communist Party in Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada (parliament) will be disbanded on Thursday, parliament speaker Oleksandr Turchynov said at a plenary meeting on Wednesday.
According to the United Nations, one child has been killed in Gaza every hour for the past two days. Overall, the Israeli military has killed close to 700 Palestinians, the vast majority civilians, since the assault on Gaza began more than two weeks ago. Details of the slaughter make their way into the world’s media, with horrific accounts of children killed on the beach, of hospital intensive-care units bombed, of first responders, searching for wounded amid the rubble, killed by Israeli sniper fire.
Nureddin Sabir says that far from toning down its pro-Israel bias following mass protests, the BBC has allowed a right-wing Israeli journalist to peddle the Israeli view on Gaza.
Soon after Malaysian Airlines MH17 crashed near Donetsk, Ukraine on July 18, killing 298 people, the BBC website quickly, and rightly, set up a ‘LIVE’ feed with rolling reports and commentary on the disaster. This was clearly an important and dramatic event involving horrific loss of life with serious political implications. The public would, of course, be searching for the latest news.
Three water cannons purchased by the London Metropolitan Police Service (the Met) have arrived in the UK. They are now at a secret location being modified for use for the first time on mainland Britain. The purchase represents a new stage in the militarisation of British police.
The cannons cannot be deployed without a Home Office licence, which has yet to be approved. Last week, Home Secretary Theresa May said “there were several operational issues” regarding the use of water cannon and that she could not give a timeframe for her decision on whether to authorise them.
The European Union has come out unambiguously in support of Israel’s mass murder of defenceless men, women and children in Gaza.
In a statement issued July 22, the EU has destroyed once and for all its pretence of being guided by “humanitarian concerns” in formulating its foreign policy—as exemplified by its pose as a restraining influence over Washington’s pro-Israeli stance regarding the Palestinians.
The Maricopa County Department of Public Health has confirmed an East Valley man in his early 60s has died from West Nile virus, the first death this year from the illness.
Two reporters for major US TV channels were summarily “removed” last week from covering Israel’s attack on Gaza, moments before Israel launched a ground invasion.
NBC pulled out Ayman Mohyeldin, who has been widely praised for the even-handedness of his reporting from Gaza, just as he landed a harrowing scoop. He had kicked a football with four boys who were killed moments later by an Israeli missile.
So of course local law enforcement is getting in on the action as well. Take the police in Washington D.C., for instance, who are featured in a Washington Post story detailing how they invent armed robbery plans whole-cloth and then recruit civilians to join up shortly before arresting these future-criminals.
The deadly Ebola Virus Disease which has killed over over 500 people in West Africa has hit Lagos, the Lagos state government says.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu fumes over the UN Human Rights Council’s plan to strike up an investigation into Tel Aviv’s human rights violations in the Gaza Strip.
The number of Palestinians killed in 17 days of Israeli offensive in the besieged Gaza Strip has risen to 788.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu opened a special cabinet meeting at the Knesset in Jerusalem Thursday by vowing that the IDF’s defensive operation in Gaza would continue “at full strength”.
“The IDF has struck a significant blow to Hamas,” the prime minister said, adding that “we will continue at full strength in both the air campaign and land campaign.”
“We will take Poland! We will crush Belgium! France will fall before our might!”
We have heard this all before.
Cases of the contagious and deadly “superbug” known as CRE increased five-fold in community hospitals from 2008 to 2012 in the Southeastern U.S., according to a new study.
A woman who witnesses said appeared to be in labor was prevented from crossing an LA street Wednesday afternoon because the road was closed for President Barack Obama’s motorcade.
The woman was seen sitting at a bus stop bench on the south side of 3rd Street just east of Robertson Boulevard and across from Cedars Sinai Medical Center.
Amid an outcry from Americans criticizing the Obama Administration over the possibility that terrorists may be among the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants entering the United States without documentation, the Department of Homeland Security has instead turned its scrutiny on American citizens.
The Obama administration has quietly approved a substantial expansion of the terrorist watchlist system, authorizing a secret process that requires neither “concrete facts” nor “irrefutable evidence” to designate an American or foreigner as a terrorist, according to a key government document…
Sometime this summer, probably when as many Americans as possible are tanning on a beach and not paying attention, the White House is expected to release a version of a classified report on torture during the Bush years. Actually, what’s likely to become public is only the executive summary of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s report; the entire thing, five years in the making, clocks in at about 6,700 pages, making it the most exhaustive account yet of what really went on in secret CIA prisons around the world.
A majority of the 100 executed inmates examined in a new study by three legal researchers had “a severe mental illness such as schizophrenia, post-traumatic stress disorder or psychosis.” Yet, because of an oddity in the Supreme Court’s death penalty cases, it is typically constitutional under existing precedents to execute people with these illnesses.
EFFORTS TO IDENTIFY LBGTS FOR FUTURE TARGETING AND POSSIBLE DEPOPULATION HAVE ALREADY BEGUN
With all eyes glued on the atrocities in Gaza and Ukraine, another homegrown atrocity may soon be underway. The Obama administration has quietly executed one of those sneaky summer weekend news dumps in hopes of nobody noticing or caring. Because what, after all, are pods of insane dolphins, and hordes of dead turtles, and the extinction of an entire whale species compared to hundreds of battered human bodies?
Russian military aggression towards Ukraine has persisted unabated since Kremlin-backed guerillas shot down a commercial airliner on July 17, killing all 298 people on board, including more than 80 children.
While the tragic event has all but deprived Russia of plausible deniability over its involvement in the eastern Ukraine war that has claimed at least 825 civilian and military lives, Russia has with regularity been shelling Ukrainian positions from its side of the border, according to Kyiv authorities.
… most of whom just quit!
CNN is headlining that the US has “proof” Russia is shelling Ukraine. Okay, why would Russia do something that stupid? And shells fired from Russia can only reach into the Independent Republics, which means Kiev is claiming Russia is shelling the separatists. Now, Kiev has been trying to provoke Russia for weeks with cross-border shellings and that stunt with the APC and Putin has refused to bite, so apparently the latest plan is to claim Russia is attacking and launch the war to end the threat of the Ruble to the US dollar.

ed note–remember that there is more to Israel’s statement than just merely rhetoric. According to Jewish religious law, which is the foundation upon which Israel’s existence is based and justified, there are no ‘civilians’ in Gaza or anywhere else. Jewish religious law makes it very clear how the Jewish state is to wage war–’Save nothing alive that breathes and show them no mercy’, a theme that has been echoed time and again by Jewish rabbis, both in Israel and throughout the diaspora. Therefore, in the Jewish paradigm, since there are no ‘civilians’ in Gaza, there can be no war crimes, and therefore any court investigating Israel for war crimes is by definition–again, according to Jewish law–illegitamate, as intimated by the assertion that the UNHRC is a ‘kangaroo court’.
Showing the foundations of the fort of the XVIIIth dynasty, the oldest ever found in this line of defense, known as the road of Horus, Mohamad Abdel-Maqsoud, the leader of excavations and the director of the central administration of Egyptian antiquities, said that it is testimony to the fierceness of the fighting. “It is here that was established the first large lock of the empire against the conquerors from the east, as the Hyksos,” he says, whereas today the Suez Canal is only 5 km. But the basis for subsequent attacks in the Pharaonic empire in the direction of Palestine, with the establishment of a chain composed of a dozen strongholds until what is now known as the Gaza Strip.
Israel gains a great deal of political advantage from the story of Exodus. But much of the Torah or Old Testament is simply stolen from other sources. The story of Noah and the Flood, for example, was copied from the Epic of Gilgamesh, as was the story of Job. It is important to recall that in those days there was no prohibition on copying. The physical book or scroll was the thing of value due to the labor intensive process of creating it, and copying/modifying other stories was accepted practice.
But according to modern archaeologists, including Egypt’s Dr. Zahi Hawass, the story told of the flight of the Hebrews from Pharaoh actually happened to the Hyksos, who fled Egypt looting as they went which is why Pharaoh chased after them.
It is important to understand that rulers always lie, and the Israelites are no different.

The United States is reportedly preparing to send a team of military advisers into Ukraine to assist with revamping forces there in the midst of the ongoing crisis between government-loyal troops and an anti-Kiev militia.
On Tuesday this week, the Washington Times reported that a spokesperson for the US Department of Defense confirmed plans to put Pentagon advisers in Ukraine.
“Within the next few weeks, a group of Defense Department representatives who specialize in strategy and policy will head to Kiev to evaluate specific programs that the United States may want to help bolster,” reporter Maggie Ybarra wrote for the Times.
The newspaper says that Army Col. Steve Warren, a spokesperson for the Pentagon, told the Times that the objective of sending DoD advisers overseas is to “shape and establish an enduring program for future US efforts to support the Ukrainian military through subject-matter expert teams and long-term advisers.”
Oh, REALLY, now that the Ukrainian parliament has just resigned, en masse?!?!?
I would strongly suggest that the Administration’s timing…bites mightily here!
An immigration policy analyst from a think tank often cited by Republicans suggested to a tea party crowd last week that President Barack Obama should be executed.
Stephen Steinlight, a senior policy analyst at the Center for Immigration Studies, told the Highlands Tea Party in Florida that efforts to impeach Obama did not go far enough because “there’s no court that’s going to stop Obama from doing anything.”
“We all know, if there ever was a president that deserved to be impeached, it’s this guy. Alright? And I wouldn’t stop. I would think being hung, drawn and quartered is probably too good for him,” Steinlight said, according to ThinkProgress. “But you know, this man who wants to rule by the use of a pen, a telephone, let us not forget his teleprompter … the fact is that it would backfire very badly and we’ve got to be grownups and accept that we can’t have everything we want, you know, [like] his head on a skewer.”
MSNBC contributor Rula Jebreal’s on-air protest of the network’s slanted coverage of Israel’s ongoing assault on the Gaza Strip has brought media suppression of the Israel-Palestine debate into sharp focus. Punished for her act of dissent with the cancellation of all future appearances and the termination of her contract, Jebreal spoke to me about what prompted her to speak out and why MSNBC was presenting such a distorted view of the crisis.
Jeremy Scahill joined HuffPost Live on Wednesday to discuss his expose for the Intercept on the way the U.S. government handles its terrorist watchlist database. During the interview, host Alyona Minkovski asked the journalist about media coverage of the Israel-Gaza conflict, and Scahill had some strong opinions on the matter.
“We could say this every time I come on your show and talk to you: we’ve hit all-time lows with media coverage in this country,” Scahill told Minkovski. “When you look at what’s happening right now in Gaza, this is a massive massacre and one epic series of war crime after war crime, child after child being killed.”
Scahill went on to say that “Israeli propagandists are largely given carte blanche to say what they want on American television with very little pushback.”
Jeremy, we have been pushing back on this for a LONG TIME here at WHATREALLYHAPPENED.COM
They perpetrated the fraud solely to support the bogus biblical claim to Palestine which was anchored in their being a separate people. This distinguished them from all others because they claimed a land title in their blood. They bet the farm on this DNA proof of purchase, a God given bar coded passport to the Palestine. Dr. Ehaik just erased the bar code. It was just stamped on anyway, because it was never in the blood.
Why, why did they do it? The second half of the answer not revealed in his research was that you had a bunch of atheist, communist Jews shoot their way into taking over the Land with the sole moral cover that ‘God gave it us only’.
Israel has sold the lie that “Jewish” is an ethnic group in addition to being a religion. But the DNA tells another story, of dozens of other ethnic groups converting to Judaism and simply declaring they are a different and superior race to all others, with a mandate from the imaginary playmate in the sky that they are supposed to own all of Palestine (and anything else they can get their hands on).
At least nine people were killed, including a baby, when an Israeli shell slammed into a UN-run school in the northern Gaza Strip on Thursday, an AFP correspondent said.
Emergency services spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra put the toll as high as 15 dead and dozens injured, with more bodies and wounded expected to arrive at nearby hospitals.
It was the latest in a number of Israeli strikes on schools and hospitals in the embattled Palestinian territory, as the death toll from a 17-day operation to halt rocket fire by Gaza militants topped 770.
A spokesman for the UN’s Palestinian refugee agency UNRWA separately confirmed “multiple dead and injured” at the school in Beit Hanun, which was being used as a shelter by hundreds of Palestinians fleeing a major Israeli operation in the area.
“Precise coordinates of the UNRWA shelter in Beit Hanun had been formally given to the Israeli army,” Chris Gunness said on his Twitter account.
To the Israeli government: stop this genocidal carnage, and right now!! You are behaving like the absolute, MORALLY LOWEST, scum of the earth, in targeting innocent women, children, and the medically frail.
And to UNRWA: NEVER, EVER GIVE PRECISE COORDINATES OF SHELTERS TO THE IDF AGAIN: THEY WILL USE IT TO BOMB THE CRAP OUT OF CIVILIANS THE NEXT TIME YOU DO.
A mysterious plane has been spotted on a flight tracking app circling South London, over and over again, for no obvious reason.
UK Prime Minister David Cameron says Britain has not breached an embargo by selling military equipment to Russia, following MP demands to clarify the government’s position on UK-Russian arms deals.
The embargo was enacted “with immediate effect” on March 18 by then-Foreign Secretary William Hague.
Heated criticism of British arms deals with Russia emerged after a group of MPs revealed over 200 licenses allowing the sale of British military equipment to the Russian Federation. These revelations surfaced in a report published on Wednesday, conducted by four separate House of Commons committees.
