‘The Israeli zionist “state” of terror has continued burning the Palestinian children in the Gaza Strip at the 17th day of what so-called the “operation Edge”, the 7th day of the Israeli war criminal forces (IWCF) ground incursion into the Gaza.
The Palestinian death toll since Israel launched the war in Gaza surpassed the 791, among them 110 of were killed during the (IWCF) aggression.
At approximately 2:50 pm today, Thursday 24 July 2014, the Israeli war criminal forces (IWCF) committed a new war crime in the Gaza Strip, directly attacking an UNRWA shelter for internally displaced people (IDPs), most of them elderly, women, and children. The (IWCF) fired six artillery shells at the Primary Coeducation School (A and D), which is located in the Qaa’ Al Beer neighborhood in the town of Beit Hanoun.’
‘The incredible picture above was published by the BBC, in an article entitled “Gaza: Hamas seeks to emerge strongerGaza: Hamas seeks to emerge stronger” and published on July 24 with credits to AFP.
Its BBC caption read “Israel has used gas to clear tunnels it says were dug by Hamas in order to infiltrate Israel.” Its alternative text (shown when the mouse is over it) read “Israeli soldiers spray gas at the exit of a tunnel which was used the day before by Hamas militants to infiltrate Israeli lines, on July 22.”
Despite neither the picture nor the event having been confirmed by Israeli sources, the BBC report is unlikely to be a hoax.’
‘The funeral of five brothers and cousins of the Daqqa family took place hurriedly during a humanitarian ceasefire. There was uncertainty about how long the brief respite would last; sporadic gunfire and air strikes could already be heard in the distance. The mourners left hurriedly as a warplane made two passes overhead.
One of the supposed aims of Benjamin Netanyahu’s government is the return of Fatah to Gaza, weakening the grip of Hamas when the fighting ends. All five killed today were Fatah members; Akram Ibrahim Abu Daqqa had worked in the office of Mahmoud Abbas, the Fatah leader and President of the Palestinian government; his brother Adli had been employed by the Fatah-run interior ministry.’

‘Ukraine’s Prime Minister has announced his resignation, adding to the turmoil in a country which is still dealing with the aftermath of the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 as well as a separatist insurgency.
Arseniy Yatsenyuk accused parliament of putting Ukraine’s future at risk by blocking legislation to pay soldiers and free the country from dependence on Russian oil supplies.
Earlier in the day, President Petro Poroshenko welcomed the departure of two parties from a parliamentary coalition, a move that opened the way for new parliamentary elections to give the country what he called “a full reset”.’
‘When a grandfather fighting cancer was told he would be evicted from the home he had been paying mortgage payments for for more than 20 years, he made a short, desperate video appealing for help and put it on the internet.
Within hours, Tom Crawford’s eloquent plea detailing his fight with official ‘thugs and bullies’ had been seen by thousands on YouTube, many of whom were moved to help him keep the home where he and his wife had raised their three children.
As a result, when the bailiffs turned up to repossess the 63-year-old’s modest bungalow in Carlton, Nottinghamshire, yesterday, they were met with hundreds of strangers protesting about Mr and Mrs Crawford’s treatment.’
Why would these people attempt to damage the work of someone who was at the front line 25 years ago before there was a ‘truth movement’ and has already done more to alert people to the truth worldwide than this lot will do collectively if they live to be a thousand?
Who benefits? The System.
Why would they be so quick to criticise the UK Column which is way further down the rabbit hole than they will ever be prepared to go?
Who benefits? The System.
You can expect some major attempts to discredit me in the next few months which are bubbling in the background at the moment because I am getting far too close to the truth and they know that I won’t be intimidated or silenced.
I take it as a compliment and I’ll just run at them quicker.
Watch this space and all that.
‘The government has been criticised for appointing a former business adviser to David Cameron who has had corporate links to the fracking industry as the new chairman of the Environment Agency.
Sir Philip Dilley, who will work three days a week on a salary of £100,000, was until April the chairman of Arup, an engineering firm that has been employed to write environmental reports on fracking for Cuadrilla – the company hoping to become the first to exploit Britain’s shale gas resources. He will take on his new role in September.’
‘Google is facing fresh outrage over its meagre contribution to the UK taxman, after revealing it paid just £20million in corporation tax last year.
The California-based internet giant has faced stinging criticism for using a complex corporate structure that allows it to route UK sales through Ireland to slash its tax bill.
And the scheme appears to have again paid off.’
‘Police are set to launch a criminal investigation into an alleged cover-up of child abuse at a school linked to Sir Cyril Smith.
The Lib Dem politician, who died aged 82 in 2010, is alleged to have used his status to sexually abuse scores of young boys with impunity at Knowl View School in Rochdale.
But despite repeated complaints by his victims and previous police inquiries, he and others have never been prosecuted.’
‘Buried in a Wall Street Journal article from about a week ago was a startling piece of information. According to a Wal-Mart executive, Wal-Mart “participated in an exercise to prepare for an earthquake on the New Madrid fault line” earlier this summer.
And officials at the U.S. Geological Survey have just released a report which indicates that they believe that the New Madrid fault zone has the “potential for larger and more powerful quakes than previously thought“. So should we be concerned? Do they know something that we don’t?
The USGS also says that the frequency of earthquakes in the central and eastern portions of the United States has quintupled over the past 30 years, and that significant earthquakes have started popping up in areas of the country that were once extremely quiet. Along with the new report, the USGS released the following map…’
‘More than two million of the poorest people in England are facing rising council tax demands this year because of fresh Government cuts to the benefit system, new figures reveal today. War widows, carers and the disabled are among 2.31 million people who used to be entitled to council tax benefit but have now had their support substantially reduced or taken away altogether.
As a result, significant numbers of families have been pushed into debt, with a survey revealing that nearly 16,000 people in London alone have been referred to the bailiffs for non-payment.’
‘Police have refused to name publicly the campaign groups that were spied on by an ultra-secretive undercover unit, as an inquiry found a succession of Metropolitan police commissioners may have been guilty of negligence.
A sensational report into the unit, known as the Special Demonstration Squad (SDS), found that the blame for intrusive surveillance techniques may have gone all the way to the top of Scotland Yard.
It disclosed that the SDS had gathered intelligence on 18 campaign groups, including those set up by friends and family of Stephen Lawrence, the black teenager murdered in a racist attack in south-east London in 1993.’
‘Communities are to be paid £1m a year simply to discuss the possibility of having a radioactive dump built beneath them, under the latest Government attempts to find a burial site for Britain’s nuclear waste.
Areas which subsequently allow test drilling to take place could reap a total of £40m in payments with “no strings attached” before deciding whether to proceed with the project.
Ministers were accused of opting for a “bribing and bullying” strategy after unveiling the plans and admitting that councils in areas considering hosting the dump would no longer have a guaranteed veto to block its construction.’
‘Russia has issued a threat to seize the assets of British companies including BP and Shell as a retaliation against David Cameron’s demand for tough sanctions.
In a mounting war of words, a senior diplomatic source claimed Moscow would “fight back” against any industry-wide EU sanctions by putting British companies working in Russia oil on the frontline.
“We want friendly relations. We will go along as far as we can. Then we will retaliate,” the figure said.’
‘Noor Elashi has not been able to hug her father for more than five years. Each time she visits him at United States Penitentiary in Marion, Illinois, they must communicate through a wall of Plexiglass. “It is unnecessarily cruel,” she told The Electronic Intifada.
Her father, Ghassan Elashi, is one of the Holy Land Five. He and four other US citizens have been prosecuted for their work with the Holy Land Foundation, a charity shut down by executive order in 2001. The case against them rested on a claim that the groups in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip financed by the Holy Land Foundation were affiliated to Hamas. The claim was spurious: the State Department aid agency USAID funded some of the same groups.’
‘The predictions of Albert Pike continue to materialize. The objective is to destroy Islam, political Zionism (the State of Israel) and Christianity by turning them upon each other. This is supposed to result in a one world Luciferian religion.
American Zionist Christianity is certainly playing its part in this agenda. While Israel focuses on destroying Palestine, America continues to be Israel’s tool to kill Muslims in other areas of the world. Once free of the restraints of Palestine, I assume that Israel plans on further expansion of their fledgling empire.
This is when it’s going to start getting bloody not only for Israel’s enemies, but for Israel itself. They will be despised by most of the world for what they have done to the Palestinians and Muslims will feel they have nothing to lose by using any means necessary to destroy Israel for fear they will be next.’

‘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.’
‘Award-winning band and veteran political activists Massive Attack used their headline slot at Longitude Festival this weekend to highlight their solidarity with Palestinians in Gaza.
The musicians played at Marlay Park, Dublin, on Sunday, kicking off their set with ‘Battlebox’ before using their backdrop to send out messages to the packed audience.
As the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) continues to bombard Gaza with air strikes while Hamas fires rockets into Israel, Massive Attack used its position to show its long-time support of Palestinian freedom.
A lit-up message behind the performers said: “Gaza has been ocupied [sic] or under restrictions since 1948.”’
‘John Podesta, one of President Obama‘s closest White House advisers, counts among his key financial supporters Hansjorg Wyss, a reclusive Swiss billionaire whose company conducted illegal human experiments that resulted in the deaths of three elderly patients.
Justice Department attorneys negotiated a $23.8 million plea deal in 2011 with Synthes Inc., and Norian Corporation, its wholly owned subsidiary, and sent four of its U.S. executives to prison. The money was paid to the federal government.
Two of the victims died in a California hospital and the third perished in a Texas medical facility. One of the California victims was Ryoichi Kikuchi, 83, who died on the operating table at John Muir Hospital in Walnut Creek on Sept. 19, 2009.’
‘Four of the five Canadians on board Air Algerie Flight AH5017 that crashed over northern Mali are from the same family, CBC News has confirmed, as officials from several countries, including France, say the wreckage has been found.
The Canadian passengers included two men, two children and one woman. They were among the 116 people on the flight that was on its way from Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso, to the Algerian capital Algiers when it disappeared from radar and lost contact with air traffic controllers early morning local time on Thursday.
French President François Hollande’s office announced the crash site was discovered in Mali, near the border with Burkina Faso, which lies south of Mali.’
‘A £10.4 billion government IT contract has spiralled “out of control,” with private contractors reaping more than £1 billion in profits at the behest of British taxpayers.
In a highly critical report, the National Audit Office (NAO) said that the Aspire contract, designed to streamline government IT services, went drastically over budget after civil servants commissioned more work than expected.
The contract – led by services conglomerate Capgemini, along with IT firms such as Fujitsu – has now cost the government double the amount it originally expected, jumping from £4.1 billion (US$6.9 billion) to £10.4 billion ($17.7 billion) since it began in 2004.’
‘NATO’s Europe commander advocates stockpiling a base in Poland with enough weapons, ammunition and other supplies to support a rapid deployment of thousands of troops against Russia, British media reported.
General Philip Breedlove’s idea would be presented to members of the alliance at the upcoming NATO summit in Wales in September, according to The Times.
The general told a briefing in Naples this week that NATO needed “pre-positioned supplies, pre-positioned capabilities and a basing area ready to rapidly accept follow-on forces.”’
‘An outspoken pro-Israel politician caused outrage across France today by comparing the mutilated corpse of a Palestinian child to ‘Halal meat’.
Jacques Renaud, the right wing deputy mayor affiliated to the UMP opposition, portrayed the killing of an infant in the Gaza Strip as being similar to animals being slaughtered according to Islamic ritual.
Mr Renaud’s comment came as thousands prepared to take to the streets of Paris in a pro-Palestine demonstration which many fear will lead to violence.’
‘A woman diagnosed with MS after losing the ability to walk claims her symptoms were actually the result of mercury poisoning from dental fillings.
Eighteen months after Maria Indermuhle had dental treatment, doctors told the 32-year-old she had the lifelong crippling illness multiple sclerosis.
They warned the then 29-year-old the condition would leave her unable to walk and prepared her for a life on medication – crushing her dreams of becoming a mother.
But Mrs Indermuhle, who is from Inverness but lives in Switzerland, is now back to full health, having had the fillings she claims were responsible, removed.’
‘Russian oligarchs are moving money out of London following threats of tough financial sanctions in the wake of the attack on Flight MH17, Downing Street has said.
Allies of Vladimir Putin are understood to be reacting after British demands to punish the Russian president’s “cronies”.
The European Union on Tuesday agreed to draw up a list of Russians who will face sanctions following the downing of the Malaysia Airlines plane, which killed 298 people.’
‘As the death toll from Israel’s savage bombardment of Gaza continues to climb, Israel has once again turned to students to sell the slaughter online.
“Although they haven’t been called up to the army yet, they’ve decided to enlist in a civilian mission that is no less important – Israeli propaganda [hasbara],” Ynet’s Hebrew edition reported about a massive initiative organized by the Israeli student union branch at theInterdisciplinary Center Herzliya (IDC Herzliya), a prestigious private university.’
‘Today I would like to return to your awareness an aspect of the Human condition that can be persuaded into believing in something that isn’t real. The magician with his iconic hat and cloak is far from being the master of such illusions. This dubious distinction belongs to the politician. Behind their towering podium, they extol virtues of a utopian world while deceptively masking true intent.
And there is magic in their words. We want to believe in our elected— that they will indeed serve us in a dignified, judicious way and their campaign promises will come to fruition. But the role of the politician is duplicitous at best. Those who seek higher office often answer to a much lower calling. Motivated by the prospect of ill-gotten gains, some won’t hesitate to arrange lucrative deals and secure favors with guarantees that will stay in place long after leaving office.
This lure can prove especially intoxicating to the high-functioning psychopath who would sell their country short in a heartbeat for the right price and a cursory nod in history books. They seem to always have a trick up their sleeve and an Ace of Spades hidden in their shoe.’
‘Virtually no one in the Japanese public supports nuclear energy production anymore, thanks to what many now agree was the worst nuclear disaster ever to occur in recorded history. But this hasn’t stopped the Japanese government from continuing to propagandize the public in support of nuclear technology, even going so far as to indoctrinate young children into the lie that cancer is normal since many people get it these days.’
‘As humans age, brain cells lose some of their volume and the brain shrinks slowly, subtly over time. Brain cells and their connections are scaled back especially when they are not used. This process of atrophy usually begins after age 30 and continues each year. According to a new study spearheaded by the University of Oulu and the University of Cambridge in Finland, the average speed of brain atrophy of healthy individuals is 0.5 percent per year.
The team of researchers also discovered a striking difference between healthy participants taking NO mind-altering drugs and schizophrenia patients taking antipsychotic drugs.’
‘According to the New York Daily News, numbers from the Civilian Complaint Review Board reveal that more than 1,000 New York City residents claimed to be victims of NYPD chokeholds in the past five years. The numbers were unveiled as the Board prepares to conduct a study of the allegations.
The Daily News wrote:
As of July 1, the CCRB had received 58 chokehold complaints against the NYPD this year, but had only substantiated one of them.
Out of the 1,022 chokehold allegations reported between 2009 and 2013, only 462 of the complaints were investigated. Out of that number, just nine were substantiated, according to the CCRB.’
‘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.

‘Approximately 5,000 protesters gathered outside the British Broadcasting Corporation’s (BBC) studios on Tuesday to protest the news outlets coverage of the ongoing conflict between Hamas and Israel. The demonstrators chanted ‘BBC shame on you’.
Protestors accuse the BBC of showing bias towards Israel in its broadcasting. The corporation has, however, also received complaints that it favors the Palestinians.
Similar demonstrations took place in the UK cities of Newcastle, Manchester and Liverpool.’
‘US drones have killed at least 13 people in the bloodiest strike in Pakistan for over a year.
The attack reportedly destroyed a house and car in the Datta Khel area early on Wednesday morning. The dead were unidentified though one source said up to 12 were Uzbeks.
A senior intelligence source told the Washington Post: “The compound was being used by foreign militants, and some local terrorists were present in the vehicle that got targeted.”
This was the second strike in six days to hit near the village and surrounding area. The first, on July 10, killed six or seven people.’
‘Last week I saw that my white American uncle posted something on Facebook. It was an article from some obscure far right-wing news source and it was called “Support the Civilized Man: Defeat the Jihadists.” Lo and behold, the article was a plea for continued support from the West to Israel. The title of this article so flagrantly states the mantra of the West when it comes to the treatment of Palestinians (and Arabs in general). I could discuss the political aspects of the events that happened this past week in Israel/Palestine. I could discuss the appalling treatment of Palestinians by Israeli citizens, subsidized by the Israeli government and military forces. But there’s one aspect of these recent events that I can’t whisk away: race.’
‘Israel is incessantly committing crimes against the Palestinians with impunity as the United States blocks every international action against the Zionist regime, an analyst tells Press TV.
“The principle permanent member [of the United Nations Security Council] – the United States – has systematically willfully obstructed every single attempt to bring Israel to book,” Kevin Ovenden told Press TV in an interview.
He said under the aegis of the United States, the Israeli regime “feels that it can get away with this.”’
‘The United States does not recognize the human rights of African-Americans in case of recent police violence against the community, a political commentator says.
Randy Short from Black Autonomy Network Community Organization made the remarks when asked to comment about police brutality in New York.

‘Israeli forces have killed several Palestinians in the occupied West Bank during a deadly crackdown on a massive protest rally against the ongoing Israeli attacks on the besieged Gaza Strip.
The violent clashes erupted during a protest rally in the village of Qalandiya near Ramallah on Thursday night.
Initial reports say at least four Palestinians were killed and more than 200 others injured in the fierce clashes with Israeli forces in the occupied region.
