UN Calls on Obama to Investigate Human Rights Abuses

From the Guardian:

The UN has called on Barack Obama to order a full investigation of US forces’ involvement in human rights abuses in Iraq after a massive leak of military documents that detail torture, summary executions and war crimes.

The call, by the UN’s chief investigator on torture, Manfred Nowak, came as Phil Shiner, human rights specialist at Public Interest Lawyers in the UK, warned that some of the deaths documented in the Iraq war logs could have involved British forces and would be pursued through the UK courts. He demanded a public inquiry into allegations that British troops were responsible for civilian deaths during the conflict.

The Guardian has analysed the 400,000 documents, the biggest leak in US military history, and found 15,000 previously unreported civilian deaths. The logs show how US authorities failed to investigate hundreds of reports of abuse, torture, rape and murder by Iraqi police and soldiers whose conduct appears to be systematic and generally unpunished.

Nowak said that if the files released through WikiLeaks pointed to clear violations of the UN Convention Against Torture the Obama administration had an obligation to investigate them.

The logs paint a disturbing picture of the relationship between US and Iraqi forces. Nowak said that UN human rights agreements obliged states to criminalise every form of torture, whether directly or indirectly, and to investigate any allegations of abuse.

    Good luck with that. So far, Chocolate Jesus’s track record on that topic has been better than Bush’s only in the sense that he won’t defend torture as awesome in public…and thats about it.

    A trillion here, a trillion there … time to audit the fed: It adds up to 13 Trillion upside down, and where is it? WHO has benefited, who has profited from our losses? Why no audit. Only one Republican, RON PAUL, and one Democrat DENNIS KUCINICH, the most courageous congressmen of them all have demanded an audit, an end to the wars, criminal investigations, and impeachment of the past administration. It seems as though we the American people are represented by only two congressmen. All others represent special interest corporations, foreign lobbies and agenda’s. The mid-term elections are upon us. It is time for action by we the people. PLEASE get out the VOTE, encourage your friends and family members to vote, BUT do not vote by party lines or promises that are never followed up on. Make sure the audit is a promise of the candidate you are voting for, that the WARS end now, and that they will hold people accountable for their actions.

    What is Christian Zionism? Pay for your atrocities, pay the cost, pay taxes for involvement.

    by Rabbi Haim Dov Beliak,

    Christian Zionism is a movement within Protestant fundamentalism that understands the modern state of Israel as the fulfillment of Biblical prophecy and thus deserving of political, financial, and religious support. Christian Zionists believe that when all Jews are gathered in Israel, Jesus will reappear; there are varying “end times” scenarios for what follows. (For more, please see the Institute for the Study of Christian Zionism.)

    Christian Zionism is an extreme modern apocalyptic movement that shares with Nazi philosophy the paranoid idea that Jews and Judaism are the central actors in the world. Both movements seek the eventual dismantling of the Jewish people and Jewish faith – Nazism by death and Christian Zionism by conversion to Christianity of a remnant of Jews, who will finally learn their “lesson” from the death of most of the Jewish people at Armageddon (Ir Megiddo); then the “left-behind” remnant is expected to commit apostasy by converting to Jesus worship.

    All the Christian Zionists’ expressions of love and friendship (for example, Pat Robertson saying “We love the Jewish people”) — all their farm aid (including red heifers to use in revived temple sacrifices) and help for Russian Jews to immigrate to Israel — are preparations for genocide by remote control.

    Rabbi Barry Block of Temple Beth El, located in Christians United for Israel leader John Hagee’s home town of San Antonio, writes for the Jewish Telegraphic Agency that “[Hagee] and his group’s partners hew to a theology that mainstream Americans of every faith reject and often abhor. Even as they speak to large congregations, Hagee and his ilk are repudiated by tens of millions of Christians, including evangelicals, and for good reason. The group’s advocacy for Israel will harm everything we hold dear, as Israel and the Jewish people are tarnished by association.”

    Christian Zionism entirely ignores Jewish/Zionist aspirations for normalcy. Zionism was to be a new start for Judaism and the Jewish people living enlightened lives in peace. Instead Christian Zionism encourages the Israeli government and the US Jewish organizational leadership on a path toward enmity with the Palestinians and disrespect for Islam. In his book End of Days: Fundamentalism and the Struggle for the Temple Mount, Gershom Gorenberg pointed to the triad of Christian, Muslim, and Jewish fundamentalisms goading and threatening each other.

    Many Jews are puzzled by Hagee’s Christian Zionism. Many do not understand how it differs from altruistic support of Israel. Nonetheless, they welcome it and its blandishments of friendship in the face of so much opposition to Israel.

    Most of what has been written about Christian Zionism by Jews (for example, Yechiel Eckstein’s The Journey Home, and CUFI Executive Director David Brog’s Standing with Israel: Why Christians support the Jewish state,) is also not helpful because it projects a romantic version of Zionism that assumes maximum claims for land and barely nods to pragmatic political considerations. Virtually the entire pantheon of Zionist thinkers from Theodore Herzl to David Grossman and Amos Elon saw peace with Arab neighbors as the culmination of the Zionist dream, not as an impossibility.

    That peace demanded compromise in resolving disputes, not preparation for endless wars and “end-times” scenarios.

    The republican, Zionist war machine causes all the
    death & destruction we witness today.

    USA media helps with the cover-up.

    Architects, engineers say they have proof 9/11 was a ‘lie’

    by Andrew Moran

    The group Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth say they have important evidence that proves the official story of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks was “a lie” and “a fraud.”

    On Saturday, the United States remembers the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001, which killed 3,000 Americans and was the basis for the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. Ceremonies will occur all over the country.

    However, one group says they have found recent evidence, which proves the official story of what happened on that devastating day is a “lie,” according to Press TV. The proof, says Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, shows pre-set explosives that were used in the demolition of the World Trade Center.
    The group further adds that molten metal was found after the 9/11 inquiry.
    “Jet fuel and office fires cannot melt iron or steel. They don’t even get half as hot as that and so something else was there, very energetic material that had to be placed throughout the buildings,” said Greg Roberts of the non-profit organization.
    Meanwhile, Richard Gage, founder of the organization who has toured the globe speaking at conferences, said: “Once we take the blinders off, we can see. There are very few people in America who have taken the blinders off. So we are assisting people by showing them the evidence.”
    Gage further explained that more than 600 architects are more concerned over the collapse of World Trade Center building 7, which was not hit by an airplane and was destroyed in 6.5 seconds.
    The group is now calling upon United States Attorney General Eric Holder to request a federal grand jury investigation into the “largest crime of the century.”

    Nine years of cover-up with the
    assistance of the American Media.(Silence-Zionist silence)

    The filibuster is the #1 obstacle to progress
    Call it what it is!! Republican/Zionist filibuster the
    real obstruction.

    There will be no public option, no climate bill, no end to “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” no new tier of unemployment benefits, no end of too big to fail, no response to the horrible Citizens United Supreme Court decision and no end to the crisis facing the federal judiciary caused by the dearth of judicial confirmations.

    There is one reason why, despite Democratic majorities in both the House and the Senate, Congress was unable to pass many common sense reforms — the filibuster.

    The filibuster is an antiquated provision in Senate procedure that requires a 60-vote supermajority to pass legislation, confirm nominees or even perform some of the most mundane parliamentary tasks.

    Filibuster abuse has gotten so bad that, a staffer for Senator Jim DeMint (a Republican senator from South Carolina and the one most closely associated with the Tea Party) sent an e-mail to the offices of all the other senators explaining that Sen. DeMint would filibuster any bills he had not personally approved of moving to the floor.

    This is what the filibuster has reduced the Senate to — an arena where moments of pique, inflated feelings of self-importance, the casual and callous disregard for the crises we face as a country, and political posturing can bring the business of the legislative branch of our government to a grinding halt.

    The truth is not on the surface, but rather buried deep within.

    The preponderance of evidence clearly and convincingly points
    in one direction.(EAST) Sufficiently and
    beyond reasonable doubt to
    support claims of malfeasance
    by our public officials. Acts unjustified, harmful and contrary
    to law, our constitution, and moral
    obligation to America.
    Treason by unjustified support of a
    single religious belief, foreign lobby
    influence, campaign contributions
    from such source or sources. Casting votes and pledging financial
    and military support for illegal occupation, violations of international law, wrongdoing that is unjustified,
    harmful and contrary to their official
    responsibility and obligations to we
    the AMERICAN people.
    Subsequently managing to avoid
    prosecution, and continue the
    dereliction of official duties which
    has led to compromising our national
    security, and financial prosperity.

    No one has been held accountable
    since 01/01, Evidence of collaboration both sides of the isle.

    Criminals refuse to prosecute criminals.

    What is important is to be aware of the fact that all governments regulate, restrict, and inhibit information. The truth is not on the surface, but rather buried deep within.

    Our military has always done a great job at providing security,and military functions according to our laws and international laws. We do not need a private tax-payer paid military that blackens our name, by committing murder, rape, and atrocities, given immunity by executive office, and function with-out congressional approval.

    A cost of $160,000 ea. agent to tax payers. Trained in torture
    procedures, brings disgrace on
    our military. Foreign agents that are paid $$15,000 to $36,000.

    The people of Bethlehem are asking for our help.
    Towering walls and militarized fences now encircle Bethlehem, turning the 4,000-year-old city into a virtual prison for its Palestinian Christian and Muslim citizens. Bethlehem has only three gates to the outside world, all tightly controlled by Israeli occupation forces.
    Israel has confiscated almost all the agricultural land in the area for illegal settlements, making it impossible for many Palestinian farmers to continue tending their land. Outside the town, the fields where shepherds once watched their flocks are being filled by Israeli housing blocs and roads barred to the descendants of those shepherds.
    “It is unconscionable that Bethlehem should be allowed to die slowly from strangulation,” says South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu. Bethlehem’s residents increasingly are fleeing Israel’s confining walls, and soon the city, home to the oldest Christian community in the world, will have little left of its Christian history but the cold stones of empty churches.
    Though most Americans don’t know it, we are directly involved in Israel’s strangulation of Bethlehem. Fortune Magazine and other analysts consistently rank the Israel lobby as one of the most effective special interests in Washington; Americans give Israel about $7 million per day. In its just over 60 years of existence, Israel has received more US tax money than any other nation.
    As we seek peace and joy for the world, it is time to reconsider an expenditure that perpetuates injustice, tragic violence, and conflict. Please help.

    Read, Think and React:
    This will cause you some distress:

    Hello:

    This will cause you some distress, as you get ready to prepare and pay your bill.

    Monday on Fox news they learned that the staffers of Congress family members are exempt from having to pay back student loans. This will get national attention if other news networks will broadcast it. When you add this to the below, just where will all of it stop?

    35 States file lawsuit against the Federal Government

    Governors of 35 states have filed suit against the Federal Government for imposing unlawful burdens upon them. It only takes 38 (of the 50) States to convene a Constitutional Convention.

    This will take less than thirty seconds to read. If you agree, please pass it on.

    This is an idea that we should address.

    For too long we have been too complacent about the workings of Congress. Many citizens had no idea that members of Congress could retire with the same pay after only one term, that they specifically exempted themselves from many of the laws they have passed (such as being exempt from any fear of prosecution for sexual harassment) while ordinary citizens must live under those laws. The latest is to exempt themselves from the Healthcare Reform… in all of its forms. Somehow, that doesn’t seem logical. We do not have an elite that is above the law. I truly don’t care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent or whatever. The self-serving must stop.

    If each person that receives this will forward it on to 20 people, in three days, most people in The United States of America will have the message.. This is one proposal that really should be passed around.

    Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution: “Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States.”

    You are one of my 20.

    A Different Jewish Voice stands for:

    Dialogue and mutual respect instead of violence and misuse of power

    Withdrawal from all Jewish settlements on the West Bank and Gaza and the recognition

    of the pre- 1967 borders

    The realization of a Palestinian state beside the State of Israel

    Jerusalem as capital of both states

    a just solution for the problem of Palestinian refugees. To achieve this Israel must take

    responsibility for her part in the creation of this problem. Only then can negotiations

    succeed in defining how Israel can contribute to righting this wrong without

    endangering her own existence.

    A Different Jewish Voice

    aims to influence the public opinion and government policies by organising public

    awareness campaigns and by lobbying politicians and other relevant decision makers

    supports Israeli peace and human rights organisations who are working to achieve the

    above mentioned goals will actively network with kindred groups internationally.

    Background

    At the end of 2000, a group of Dutch Jews decided to publicly express their indignation

    about the excessive Israeli response to the second Intifada, by publishing a statement with

    the names of several hundred signatories in major Dutch newspapers. This initiative

    received overwhelming public support and media coverage and resulted in a public

    meeting on January 14, 2001. A committee was formed to propagate the goals of Another

    Jewish Voice and to initiate further activities.
