cue the lightning bolts

the only question that matters: is it true?

Iran has signed the NPT. As a signatory to the NPT, Iran may rightfully, legally, use nuclear technology for peaceful energy purposes. Iran has submitted to and passed repeated IAEA inspections. The US intelligence community (NIE) does not consider Iran a nuclear threat. Israel refuses to sign the NPT. Israel has an estimated several hundred undeclared nuclear weapons. Russia and China have warned that an attack on Iran will have global consequences. That's the situation in a nutshell. Where to next, people? Where to?

1. Zionist judge lets the mask slip: West Bank land belongs to the jews

excerpt:

“When we [Israelis] say that this is a political conflict, then we lose the battle,” he told the Guardian, adding that it should be remembered that the ancient land of Israel is “given to us by the Bible, not by some United Nations”.

Agassi, one of the most important officials in the military courts wielding authority over large parts of the West Bank, says settling Jews on lands that made up ancient Israel stands above all other biblical commandments and only when it is done can they have “a promised land and a promised life”.

“You say that these lands ‘passed into Jewish hands’. Others would say that they came back into Jewish hands. Others would say that they are obviously ours, inherently,” he said. It was, he claims, a mistake to call it the State of Israel. “If we would have named it the State of Jews, the Arabs would have understood that this land belongs to the Jews.”

Agassi served in the legal department that oversaw the confiscation of land in the West Bank to build Jewish settlements and was then appointed to the military court that decided Palestinian appeals against the seizure of their property. The Palestinians almost never won. His court also ruled on legal disputes between Jewish settlers and Palestinians.

2. Soros: a new economic system is required

BUDAPEST, Oct. 27 (Xinhua) -- Hungarian-born investor and philanthropist George Soros said in Budapest, Hungary, on Tuesday that the entire edifice of global financial markets that has been erected on the false premise that markets can be left to their own devices has to be rebuilt from the ground up and that a new economic paradigm is required.

Soros who came out of retirement in 2007 to help manage his hedge fund firm Soros Fund Management through the recent crisis, also announced that he will set up and sponsor an Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET) intended to foster research, workshops and curricula that will aim to develop an alternative to the prevailing economic system.

Soros said he will commit 50 million dollars over ten years and hopes that other donors will join. INET will be launched in Cambridge University, England, in April 2010. The Central European University in Budapest, which is hosting a series of lectures this week by Soros, will also be a hub of the INET network.

3. Michael Bloomberg needs to speak Russian now? Why's that? To flatter all the Russian Jews in NY.

The lust for power does not have any limits. Michael Bloomberg, one of world’s richest men, the mayor of New York, started speaking Russian all of a sudden. Mr. Bloomberg needs to keep his office, and he is happy to learn some Russian ahead of the election day. He understands that New York residents of Russian origin can play a very important role in the election.

NY Governor David Paterson signed a special document in August 2009, according to which all documents related to the election process must be translated into Russian.
...

Boris Pushkarev, a Russian New Yorker, said in an interview with Pravda.Ru that there are many Russian-speaking people in New York indeed.

“They do represent a considerable part of the city electorate. The Russian influence can be seen nearly everywhere, especially in the center, on Brighton Beach. Many of those living here now represent the generation of people who came to New York from the USSR in the beginning of the 1970s. They are mostly Jews, who reside in the Brighton Beach area. The number of Russians is much smaller. They are mostly the women who married American men or those who came to study here, but then decided to stay here for good.

4. famous Rodin sculptures bring 'piece of France' to Brazil

BRASILIA, Oct. 26 (Xinhua) -- An exhibition featuring a number of original works by French sculptor Auguste Rodin, among them "The Thinker," began on Monday at the Palace of Arts in the northeastern Brazilian city of Salvador.

5. hackers deface US embassy site in Brazil with 'putrid trash of a country' - message seems to be down with the US up with Brazil


"Putrid trash of a country" was one of the messages left apparently by hackers at the homepage of the

American embassy in Brazil. It took the diplomatic representation of the US a few hours before they noticed the defaced site and then took it off the air.

The site, found at www.embaixada-americana.org.br and http://brasilia.usembassy.gov/, was attacked this Tuesday night. The embassy turned off the site about 11 pm. A call to the embassy by the G1 site was answered by a security officer who didn't know anything about the defacing, but told the reporter he would warn his superiors about the problem.

On a black background the hackers posted a close-up of an eye sporting the Brazilian flag's colors and a young lady who seems to be saying something. The image was signed by a group calling itself FIREH4CK3R. They also left the message: Fighting for Brazil.

The homepage cache from Google snapped on October 24, had among other headlines: "US Embassy Announces Winners of the 2010 Youth Ambassadors Program," "President Barack Obama wins the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize," "F/A 18 Super Horne on the Move," "Secretary Hillary Clinton: A New Approach To Global Food Security and Hunger."

The main article on the page says, "Brasília, 2009 - On October 16, the 35 candidates selected to take part in the U.S. Embassy's Cultural Exchange Program, "Youth Ambassadors," were announced. This is the eighth edition of the program that will take the students to the United States for three weeks, from January 8 to 30, 2010.

"The experience of being a Youth Ambassador gives them the opportunity to expand their horizons at the same time as they help us strengthen the ties of friendship, respect and collaboration between Brazil and the United States," said the United States Embassy's Chargé d' Affaires, Lisa Kubiske during the ceremony at the Banco Bradesco's headquarters in São Paulo.
