Passing the Buk By William Bowles

22 July 2014  — williambowles.info

Well, aside from a few comments I’ve posted on Moon of Alabama, I’ve spent most of the time reading (when I’ve not been compiling) just about everything I could on the subject of the downing of Malaysian Airlines #MH17 and I think it’s pretty obvious that the Russians have been fitted up for this horrendous crime by the Kiev authorities (and possibly others) and, it must be said, they did a pretty bad job of it! If it wasn’t for the craven and complicit corporate/state media in the West simply not reporting on the actual events of the 17 July as they have been revealed, the reality of the frame would be obvious to everyone.

As if the people of Gaza have not suffered enough, Israel has escalated its brutal assault on Gaza in the last 24 hours. Last Saturday a fantastic 100,000 marched to the Israeli embassy – this Saturday’s demonstration is even more important.

‘Disgustingly Biased’ – The Corporate Media On The Gaza Massacre

24 July 2014 — Media Lens

Soon after Malaysian Airlines MH17 crashed near Donetsk, Ukraine on July 18, killing 298 people, the BBC website quickly, and rightly, set up a ‘LIVE’ feed with rolling reports and commentary on the disaster. This was clearly an important and dramatic event involving horrific loss of life with serious political implications. The public would, of course, be searching for the latest news.

Video: Take a Break and Fight! – CNN vs RT – RT Wins by K.O.

24 July 2014 — No Limit to Our Anger (c) V. M. Molotov

Preamble: By popular demand of one Luis López, we present to you a little diversion – something out of the ordinary. A fight to the death between Peter Lavelle (Russia Today) and Chris Cuomo (CNN). Unfortunately, the occasion for the battle is inauspicious – the crash of the Malaysian Airlines Boeing MH17. Nevertheless, this battle is a microcosm of the world we find ourselves in, in which one side’s, Russia’s attempt to play by the rules is met with a saloon-style brawl by the other side, the US.

A chessboard drenched in blood By Pepe Escobar

23 July 2014 — Asia Times

“The intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy.” Everyone remembers the Downing Street Memo, which unveiled the Bush/Blair “policy” in the run-up to the 2003 bombing/invasion/occupation of Iraq. The “policy” was to get rid of Saddam Hussein via a lightning war. The justification was “terrorism” and (non-existent) weapons of mass destruction (WMD), which had “disappeared”, mounted in trucks, deep into Syria. Forget about intelligence and facts.

Why Our Black Political Class is Paralyzed and Silent on Gaza Massacres and Israeli Apartheid

by BAR managing editor Bruce A. Dixon

How did the NAACP wrap up its national conference this weekend without saying a mumbling word about the genocidal bombing of Gaza? Why did Moral Monday’s Rev. Barber appear on HBO’s Real Time with notorious Islamaphobe Bill Maher and not speak to the morality of apartheid in Israel? Why are the black political class and the black church, invisible on the invasion of Gaza and the fact of Israeli ethnocracy in general?

23 July 2014 — Global Research News - Gaza Ministry of Health

PRESS RELEASE

MINISTRY OF HEALTH GAZA

palestineflagAnother massacre is underway in Khan Younis, where relentless Israeli shelling and sniper fire are wreaking death and destruction on all that moves in the zone east of Khan Younis city.

The villages of Khuza’a, Al Fukhari, Abasan Alkabir, Abasan Al Sa’ir, Jarara, and Bani Suhela received no warning of the attacks, and no warnings to evacuate before the bombardment began at around 11pm last night.

The intensity of Israeli shelling around the Algerian Hospital in Abasan Alkabir shattered its windows, and led to its evacuation, leaving only the emergency department operational.
