Around the world
There are many events on facebook Global Peace day on 11.11.11 and other events for “Occupy the world”, but these invitations by unkown organizations, at all as we need peace for this world we must say “NO” for all war criminals like Netanyahu, Bush, Obama, Livny and many war criminal who don’t apply what they said about Peace.This day for Freedom Waves flotilla solidarity
I believe every consulate and Embassy in the world should be a Solidarity March Sit-in/action by every global Activist, working to bring down Zionist Israel and all the affiliations and individuals working with these traitors to humanity be brought also without reservation.
Remember, Zionist-Nazi Israel have been in operation since the 1700′s scamming peoples, govt’s, in every way, includes mass killings, Genocides, World Wars, Revolutions, killing: Kings, Queens, Emperors, peoples from every faith, nations, etc., taking away the Rights of Peoples and Nations.
We must stand on our own feet and NOT Depend on our Governments or Nations anymore. They are all the same, NOT Representing or Standing up for the peoples.WE can no longer Trust them. Money not peoples are their whole entirety of being.
Time for ALL of us to stand together, demand Justice, Full and Equal Representation, Full Transparency and for we the peoples to Stop Being Ripped off and Not Having Justice stand up for ‘we the peoples’. Time to take those who supposedly say they stand up for us, to be taken out of office and put into office in real honest peoples we can really rely on from one generation to the next.
So, Please, Occupy, Occupy, Occupy, without Violence and making sure ‘we the peoples’ win. MONEY can not take the place of anything or anybody. We Can Not continue any of this type of governance or leave our Children to live under this joblessness, control and endless greed in any country.
ALL of Our Future Depends on the cost of what transpires in our lives.
|Visa, Mastercard and PayPal all enable donations to be made to US-registered groups funding illegal Israeli settlements in the West Bank in defiance of international law.
It appears at least one of the major credit cards also enables donations to an extremist Jewish group that has placed a bounty on the lives of Palestinians.
All three have in the last week ceased enabling donations to WikiLeaks. Neither Mastercard nor Visa have explained the basis for their decision to do so. PayPal has backed away from its initial claim that the US State Department told PayPal WikiLeaks had broken the law after the claim was discredited. This is the third occasion on which PayPal has suspended payment services for WikiLeaks.
Israel subsidises over 100 settlements in the West Bank in defiance of international law. Another 100+ are “illegal outposts” even under Israeli law. All benefit from extensive support from the United States, channelled through a range of Jewish and right-wing Christian bodies, all of which have charitable status under US law. The International Crisis Group’s report on settlements in July 2009identified the important role played by US charities. Israeli newspaper Haaretz has investigated the strong support provided via US charities, and Israeli peace groups have also targeted the generous support provided via private donations from the US and Canada.
Credit card transactional systems play a key role in facilitating this support for illegal settlements. Here are some examples.
At this stage WikiLeaks has breached no international law and no laws of any country, but Mastercard, Visa and PayPal have all blacklisted it. All three continue to enable the support of settlements that are in breach of international law, in some cases of Israeli law, and in defiance of US policy on settlements under successive Republican and Democrat administrations.
Crikey invited Visa, Paypal and Mastercard to comment but none had responded by deadline. (Monday, 13 December 2010)

What is usually a time of celebration was marked by gunfire and protests in Syria Sunday as residents ushered in the first day of the Muslim holiday, Eid al-Adha.
At least nine were killed in shelling and gunfire in the western city of Homs, a hotbed of anti-government sentiment and a government-led crackdown. Four others were wounded there, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
Two others were killed in Hama and one person in Idlib, according to the Local Coordination Committees of Syria, a network of opposition activists.
A day earlier, violence in Homs claimed at least 23 lives, activists said.
In Aleppo, Syria’s largest city and the country’s economic center, residents took to the streets in anti-government protests after the morning Eid prayers, according to the LCC.
In the southern city of Daraa, where the unrest started in March, security forces fired in the air to disperse crowds and prevent them from demonstrating after prayers, the group said.
Detainees at Syrian prisons have launched a hunger strike, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said, protesting against what they claim were false promises by the Syrian authorities that they would be released.
CNN could not confirm the reports. Tough media restrictions in Syria have made it hard to verify events on the ground.
Eid al-Adha, which commemorates the Muslim prophet Ibraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son for Allah, is one of two major holidays in Islam. The other, Eid al-Fitr, marks the end of Ramadan, when Muslims fast from dawn to dusk.
In ordinary times, the occasions are marked with joyous community prayers, acts of charity, visits from far-flung relatives, gift-giving and elaborate feasts.
But Syria is in the midst of a nearly eight-month uprising that started with calls for elections and an end to abuses by security forces, but turned into widespread calls for the ouster of President Bashar al-Assad.
Despite a brutal government crackdown, the demonstrations continue.
On Saturday, the violence left at least 28 people dead, adding to a death toll that has climbed upward of 3,800, the LCC said.
The government-run Syrian Arab News Agency placed Saturday’s toll at 22, and said the “martyrs” had died at the hands of “armed terrorist groups” — a phrase the state has used to describe the anti-government protesters.
Al-Assad and other officials have blamed the violence on outside forces attempting to undermine the 40-year rule of the president’s family.
Imad Mustafa, the Syrian ambassador to Washington, told Syrian TV on Saturday that the United States is inciting the unrest in his country to take political advantage.
Last week, Syria pledged to the Arab League that it would pull back its forces, release prisoners and allow outside monitors into the country, but opposition activists say that has not happened.
Syria has made previous pledges to withdraw armed forces from civilian areas, but in some of those cases, it withdrew only armored units and left infantry in place, or returned after a brief pullout.
It also has made other moves aimed at defusing the protests, including plans to draft a new constitution, but they have failed to appease demonstrators.
The ongoing violence prompted the Arab League on Saturday to warn of a regional crisis if the Syrian government does not comply with its pledge.

Archbishop emeritus Desmond Tutu on Saturday slammed Israel, warning the Middle Eastern nation that it should watch out as God is always on the side of the oppressed.
Tutu delivered the opening address at the International Russell Tribunal on Palestine in Cape Town earlier.
The tribunal is an international forum which is aimed at promoting peace and justice in the Middle East.
However, several Jewish bodies including the South African Jewish Board of Deputies have dismissed it as a kangaroo court.
The tribunal’s panel includes holocaust survivor Stephane Hessel, author and poet, Alice Walker and former South African cabinet minister Ronnie Kasrils.
It has already sat in London and Barcelona, and will meet again in New York later in 2011.
Speaking at its meeting at Cape Town’s District Six Museum earlier, Tutu did not hold any punches, saying the suffering inflicted by Israel on the Palestinian people, shows that it has forgotten the Jewish scriptures.
He said they have forgotten their own history and what their own prophets have said about our God.
Referring to the Holocaust, Tutu added that it pains him to see that a people who went through a crucible of suffering themselves, oppressing others.
He concluded with a biblical warning saying that the biased God of the past is the biased God of the present.

International hacker group says will disable government computer systems after Israel Navy interception of 2 Gaza-bound vessels on Friday; calls interception ‘an act of war.’
The international cabal of hackers known as Anonymous is threatening a cyber-attack on the Israeli government’s computers in response to its interception of a Gaza-bound flotilla on Friday.
In a video that was uploaded to YouTube, the groups warns that if the siege on Gaza is maintained, it will have no choice but to go on the attack.
On Sunday, the websites of the IDF, Mossad and the Shin Bet security services were down. It is still not clear whether this was linked to threat of “Anonymous.”
In the video, the group accused the Israeli government of breaching international law and of piracy, because IDF naval commandos boarded the boats 35 nautical miles from the coast, in international waters.
“We do not tolerate this kind of repeated offensive behavior against unarmed civilians,” the group said in the video message.
“We along with 127 countries recognize Palestine as a state for the people of Palestine and such acts by you and your military are acts of war against a sovereign nation,” they added.
Anonymous said that if the siege continues and Israeli forces intercept additional flotillas, or if they conduct additional operations such as the commandeering of the Mavi Marmara, it will have no alternative but to launch repeated cyber-attacks on Israeli computer systems until the siege ends.
Anonymous has succeeded in the past in bringing about the temporary disabling of many websites, including credit card companies that refused to transfer donations to the WikiLeaks organization.
Several months ago, Anonymous announced that they have the code for Stuxnet, which was distributed on the internet. Security experts usually do not see them as a strategic threat, as they do programmers who are responsible for this type of malicious software.
Anonymous threatened to disable the Knesset website a few months ago, but even if hacking did occur then, the website continued to function and did not suffer any apparent damage.

Dear sisters and brothers, friends and loved ones,
I write to you from cell 9, block 59 Givon Prison near Ramla in Occupied Palestine. Although I was tasered during the assault on the Tahrir, and bruised during forcible removal dockside (I am limping slightly as a result) I am basically ok. We, Ehab, Michael, Karen from Tahrir, as well as Karen, Kit (US) and Jihan who we saw briefly this morning. We are most concerned about our Tahrir shipmate, Palestinian Majd Kayyal from Haifa, last seen by us at Ashdod being photographed and put in a police car.*
Although Michael and I (among others) were transported in handcuffs and leg shackles, let me stress that we are neither criminals nor illegal immigrants but rather political prisoners of the apartheid state of Israel. Four from the Tahrir are imprisoned with 12 Irish comrades from the Saoirse, who have more experience with such issues. The four of us, Ehab and I (Cdn), Michael (Aus) and Hassan (UK) have joined with the Irish in their political prisoners’ committee in order to press our collective demands:
- association in the block – i.e. open cells
- adequate writing and reading material
- free communication with outside world – i.e. regular phone calls
- information about shipmate women held at same prison
We add one Tahrir-specific demand: that Israeli state recognize the professional status of Democracy Now journalist Jihan Hafiz in accordance with her credentials from the US government. All political incarceration is unjust but let me stress that in duration and conditions, our situation pales in comparison to the plight of thousands of Palestinian political prisoners and to the open air prison of Gaza.
If you have energy to devote to solidarity actions in the coming days, please concentrate on them. We must get Tahrir back and hope Freedom Waves continue.
Free Majd Kayyal! Free all political prisoners! Free Gaza! Free Palestine!
Anishnabe-debuewin, restons humaine, stay human, in love and struggle,
* Majd Kayyal was released, but it appears David the other political prisoners weren’t told where he was taken.
