FARC, Hugo Chavez, and La Frontera [10 Mar 2008|09:11am]

newsoftoday
 

The south of Columbia needs larger roads, infrastructure, banks to loan farmers money, and a railway system to import their produce to the cities if they want to change the current civil war. The farmers have no possibility for income except growing Coca. Who continues this cycle of violence? The United States of America.

I've travelled to the FARC territory. There is no way the cocaine is imported without the complicity of the United States government. The civil war is a direct result of the U.S. The government uses the profits from the drug trade to fund their illegal operations and for profit. FARC, the DEA, the Columbian government, and the U.S. military are used to continue the chaos, destroy the competition, and prosecute the independents. 

Whenever there is division in a country one should look at the countries resources and to the United States. The government, while repeating that we live in a democracy and have rule of law, is lawless. There is a level of government in which there are no laws.  The purpose of the military, intelligence agencies, and media is to cover and support big business. In the U.S. that is the privatized military apparatus, drugs, weapons, people, international corporations, and oil.

What Uribe has not understood is that by supporting the U.S. he has been supporting the drug trade. By having the DEA and the military in his country he has enabled the cocaine to be transported to our cities. I have travelled through Central and South America. The countries are patrolled with police and military stops. The thought of an vehicle going from the south of Columbia through the jungle to the cities without inspection I find to be impossible.There is no way the cocaine is being smuggled to the U.S. by the "drug warlords." As anyone that has any knowledge of electronics and the U.S. can attest to, there is no way there are planes or cars are coming over the border with drugs undetected.

The drug war is a war against blacks and latinos who use and sell the drugs imported by the U.S. government, then end up in prison and lose their right to vote.

When you hear of the next Holocaust will you leave?
When you hear of the next Holocaust will you leave? magnify

Americans are comfortable. The homes, the cars, the materials, and the money. This material wealth and the propaganda on the television has made the citizens of this country complacent and ignorant to the world around them.

As long as nobody is committing crimes against you, what do you care if a human being from another country is being tortured or murdered? We are watching a fascism state arise and from someone in the know it has already risen, and now it is almost too late for reaction.

Whistle blowers who are exposing the crimes of the United States government are being tortured. Myspace Darren Gelbard, youtube Monarch Katherine Moore, and DIA Topoff, to see video, testimonials, and evidence of U.S. citizens being tortured. If you are one that is prone to disbelief, youtube ADS weapons, CNN, and 60 minutes to watch people being hit by a ray beam by an operator from a distance.

These weapons are lethal, they are in mass use, and they are being used against the population of this country already. Why don't you hear about these victims on the news? The government has infiltrated the news and as any victim can attest to, these weapons manipulate the behavior of people. In other words, a victim goes to law enforcement and law enforcement is on the same weapon without their knowledge and they obstruct justice. The victims complain to family members only for them to behave the same as law enforcement. Congress and the Supreme Court are a macrocosm of this behavior. What happens to Whistle blowers are a microcosm.

V2K is a voice to skull device that induces microwave hearing. Psychotronics are a form of augmented cognition. When you are a whistle blower you are a PAS. A populated augmented segment. And the government of the United States is torturing the children of Whistle blowers. See Monarch Whistle blower for video evidence.

The first reaction to this information is disbelief. People forget. There have always been people throughout history that have tortured and murdered innocents. What this administration is doing is making what they have always done legal. 935 lies, Guantanamo Bay, Darren Gelbard, and many CIA black sites later... are you going to examine the evidence? This government uses terrorism events and fear to achieve their goals. One day everything is fine, then they do an event, and your rights are gone and it is too late. Remember how you felt on September 10, 2001?

Americans are asking for Political Asylum...Why don't we hear about it?     

There is no country in the world that understands propaganda more than the United States. Billions are spent at the Pentagon on what you hear and repeat. The mainstream news is a psychotronic parade as the democrats bumble and the reporters comment as though they are on the Bush administration payroll. 

The truth is not reported. The public responds as a story of importance makes breaking news only to see it squashed in the next 72 hours. Americans are asking for political asylum and you are not hearing about it. 

The government is torturing American citizens who are Whistleblowers-  myspace Darren Gelbard, youtube Monarch Katherine Moore, and DIA Topoff to see electronic warfare torturing a U.S. citizen in 2007. Or, for those of you who think these victims are conspiracy theorists, there are the ADS military tests on youtube, 60 Minutes, and CNN. People being hit out of thin air by a ray beam. For real!

Weapons that can harm or kill you from a distance, without leaving marks if the operator so desires, are being used on people in their homes. There are interviews with U.S. citizens who are victims and with a Baghdad surgeon in which he states there are bodies in Iraq he and his team of ten Doctors have seen that are being killed by..."No bullets, no shots..arms cut straight off...we don't know what kind of weapon it is." A Baghdad Orchestra player also stated he saw bodies where..."Only the face was burned, no eyes..and the teeth. The rest of the body was untouched.

The Washington Post released an article called Mind Games in which the victims of psychotronics and V2K described what it was like to have someone mentally and physically torture you using communications and electronic warfare from a distance. And Russia is trying to ban Space weapons after Congress changed the bill that would have banned psychotronics years ago. This is the most dangerous game. Weapons that no individual can defend themselves against. Weapons that manipulate people and that torture and can kill you in your home with no warning from a distance.

Islam Has Brought Peace and Harmony to the Middle East All Through History!! [16 Jan 2007|06:47pm]

kashkool
By: HARUN YAHYA

Palestine, and particularly Jerusalem at its heart, has been holy for Muslims since the beginning of the history of Islam. Muslims' seeing Palestine as holy has enabled them to bring peace and harmony to the region. We shall be considering some historical instances of this in this article.

There are two fundamental reasons why Jerusalem is holy for Muslims: It is the first direction to which Muslims used to turn to pray. Furthermore, what can be seen as one of Prophet Mohammed's greatest miracles, his ascent to heaven, was from Masjid al-Haram to Masjid al-Aqsa, in other words from Mecca to Jerusalem. This fact is revealed in the Koran in these terms:

Glory be to Him who took His slave on a journey by night from the Masjid al-Haram to the Masjid al-Aqsa, whose surroundings We have blessed, in order to show him some of Our Signs. He is the All-Hearing, the All-Seeing. (Surat al-Isra: 1)

In stories about the Prophets in the Koran, those holy verses that discuss Palestinian lands refer to them as 'blessed lands' and 'holy lands.' In the above verse about the ascent to heaven, Masjid al-Aqsa is described as a land 'whose surroundings We have blessed.' In Surat al-Anbiya, in which the migration of the prophets Abraham and Lot is recounted, the same territory is described as 'a land We have blessed.' All Palestinian soil, where many prophets from the tribe of Israel have lived, fought in the path of God, and been martyred or died and buried, is holy for Muslims.

Consequently, Muslims have brought "blessings", i.e. peace and security to Jerusalem and Palestine over the last 1,400 years.

Hi, I'm really interested in what people think about this question and I'd greatly appreciate your answer. Thank you.



In your opinion why did Osama Bin Laden attack the World Trade Centers?



P.S. This is for my own personal curiosity.


All answers will be screened.

Luxury prison camps

Arabian Ranches, secure villa complex and golf course, Dubai

Nothing says “I hate where I’m from” quite so effectively as a gated community. In fact, if you chose to buy a villa in a bland, characterless man-made suburb, surrounded on all sides with 10ft-high walls, electric fences and CCTV cameras and patrolled 24-hours a day by former Marines, then you may as well take out an advert in the paper saying how much you despise everyone – particularly those who might be (can you bring yourself to say it?) poor.

With a gated community, you can now surround yourself with other monumentally dull rich people and reduce your contact with socially afflicted, un-Western types to your child-minder (who’ve you’ve now house-trained, of course) and the guy who fills your Hummer at the local gas station.

Gulf dreams
Gated communities are, of course, imports to the region from America. They were started by uptight white people who wanted to band together in Florida and Arizona on the basis of stock portfolio and golf – and ensure they didn’t have to live with people whose skin tones might not blend too well with their magnolia wallpaper. Gated communities then arrived in the Middle East when Big Oil’s Western workers wanted somewhere a little more liberal than downtown Dhahran. Which, to be fair, is not that outrageous a suggestion. But Dubai? What exactly are people scared of?
The PR blurb says for the new “Gazelle” says it all: “Invite yourself to an exclusive lifestyle that is steeped in the mystery and beauty of the desert… treat your senses to a delightful journey of discovery and indulgence in this desert paradise, created as an ideal getaway for the mind, body and soul.” Or, in a shorter sentence, don’t let people with accents and dirty fingernails ruin your day again. Well done you.


Flexible living

Bedouin communities, Wadi Rum, southern Jordan

There is something to be said for living in a Bedouin community. For men, at any rate, they kind of had everything sorted. Think about it. You spend all day in the wilderness of the desert, roaming the dunes and sandy plains, concerned only with protecting a well or two and maybe hunting the odd Nubian Ibex for a bit of multi-coloured hide. Then, you come back, sat in a tent under the stars, and were presented with a massive meal, a roaring fire and some beautiful young distant cousin to rub your feet as you bang on about what a tough day it’s been.

Financially, it’s also much easier. There’s no mortgage available for goat-hair tents, you breed your 4x4 and there’s very little for your wife to nag you into buying. A new gold bracelet? You can rob that from some trader passing through to Mecca. And she starts to get a bit uppity, marry someone half her age with nicer tattoos. That’ll teach her. When it comes to kids, moreover, there are 95 aunts, sisters, cousins and grandmothers to look after them until they’re old enough to hold a rifle – and if you hate your neighbours, you just move to the wadi next door. Simple.

Desert dwelling, 21st century style
Of course, there aren’t many places for a thrusting young, executive Bedouin these days. Most of the communities have been coerced into village life – taxes are very hard to collect from people that are never in the same place more than once in three years – but you can still get a taste with the Zalabia tribe in Wadi Rum or the Na’imat of Disi. In fact, one American woman of Palestinian descent ditched all her worldly belongings and moved to Rum seven years ago – and she’s still there, acting as a sheikha for the community, and never once wondering who won this year’s Arab SuperStar.
