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.

Black Agenda Report for July 23, 2014: Black Political Class Silent on Gaza, Black Removal in Detroit, Putin in Crosshairs

23 July 2014 — Black Agenda Report

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?

Another Massacre in Gaza, This Time in Khan Younis

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.

The Malaysian Airlines MH17 Crash: Financial Warfare against Russia, Multibillion Dollar Bonanza for Wall Street By Prof Michel Chossudovsky

22 July 2014 – Global Research

While the mainstream media casually accuses Moscow without evidence of having orchestrated the shoot down of Malaysian Airlines MH17 in liaison with the Donesk rebels, the backlash of the crisis on international financial markets and on Russia’s financial system has passed virtually unnoticed.

Calls for genocide enter Israeli mainstream

21 July 2014 — Jonathon Cook

As we watch the horrifying slaughter unfold in Gaza, bear in mind the Israeli psychosis that fuels and justifies it. Here are comments from three rightwing Israelis – two leading politicians and a professor – who very much reflect a strain of mainstream thinking in Israel, one that the international media largely avoids noting.

Each, in their different ways, is advocating a genocide of the Palestinians.

Ukraine News Links 22 July 2014

22 July 2014 18:25:30 — williambowles.info

There are so many news items on events in Ukraine that it’s hard for me to keep up with them! Below, find just today’s stories (after weeding out irrelevant stuff), I doubt I’ll get round to updating yesterday’s releases, there’s just too much of it! Strange to say, even before MH17, coverage of the Fascist onslaught on Gaza has been a fraction of the Ukraine coverage, which gives you a good indication of where the Western media is at.
