(Rense) – Gaza – One Of Earth’s Most Desperate Places

After the news hit Israel that commandoes stormed the aid flotillas and seized control, Israeli civilians threw impromptu celebrations. They waved Israeli flags and honked their car horns. Later, official parades and demonstrations by grade school kids filled the streets, extolling the heroism of the commandoes who stopped relief aid from entering Gaza.

While the world rages in unprecedented criticism of the IDF brutality, the United States is different. Here, pro-Zionist politicians and evangelical leaders alike have celebrated as if they were on the streets of Tel Aviv. Read More Here

It took a war, the lives of 1,400 Palestinians, and nine Turks, killed during a lethal Israeli interception of an aid flotilla, for Arab states to finally move against the blockade.

(AlJazeera) – Siege takes toll on Gaza children

International pressure has been mounting on Israel to lift its blockade of Gaza since the deadly raid on an aid flotilla bound for the Palestinian territory.

The UN has said 80 per cent of people there depend on food hand-outs.

But Israeli officials insist that there is no humanitarian crisis in the enclave.

UN aid workers inside Gaza, however, see a different reality.

Al Jazeera’s Nicole Johnston reports from Gaza, where it has been reported that about 14 per cent of children suffer from stunted growth due to malnutrition.

From Britain To Brazil – Owning The Dystopian Daydream

(TheCleaver) – Since the end of World War II, the United Kingdom has steadily and perceptibly regressed into a psychotic quagmire of officialdom. This has been implemented according to an explicit strategy to remove the personal privacy, self empowerment and spiritual alignment from the people of Britain. The current subjects of the German Dynastic elites known as The House Of Saxe-Coburg And Gotha (renamed The Windsors in 1917 for public relations reasons), are seeing a rapid regression to the in-your-face serfdom that was previously believed to have been consigned to the dark days of the 17th century. Or so it would seem. Continue reading

Video: May Levels of Toxic Gases in Gulf Back Up Claim Made by Lindsey Williams

(Infowars) – Appearing on the Alex Jones Show earlier in the week, pastor Lindsey Williams said that gases — Hydrogen Sulfide, Benzene, Methylene Chloride, and other toxic gases — pose a greater risk to human health than the presence of oil washing up on Gulf of Mexico beaches. Williams said the EPA is not reporting on the amount of gases escaping from the BP oil gusher. However, the second video below suggests the EPA has released data on the amount of Hydrogen Sulfide and Benzene in the air in Louisiana. Video Link Here

(PressTV) – More US missiles kill 18 in Pakistan

Another US missile strike has killed at least 18 people and wounded dozens in a tribal area in northwest Pakistan, officials say.

According to Pakistani security officials, a drone fired six missiles 50 kilometers west of Miranshah, the main town in North Waziristan on Friday. They say a house in Bahadar Khel village was the target of the attack.

Reportedly, the previous drone strike killed three people late Thursday at a house in the village of Khaddi, 15 kilometers east of Miranshah.

Almost 1000 Pakistanis have been killed in US drone strikes since 2008.

The issue of civilian casualties has strained the Islamabad-Washington relations.

Washington claims the attacks target militants whereas most of them have killed civilians.

Islamabad has repeatedly called for an end to the attacks, saying they violate Pakistan’s sovereignty. – Source: PressTV
