Channel 4 on Israel’s crimes

Channel 4’s Alex Thomson interviews UNRWA’s Head of Mission in I-P Katharina Ritz who testifies against Israeli crimes (8 mins). He also takes the odious and ubiquitous Israeli government spokesman Mark Regev to task, imploring him, “What in the name of humanity are Israel doing?”

    Given the extensive Zionist control of the corporate media that now exists in UK,and according to Robert Fisk’s account is pretty insidious in Canada too,commentators who decry IDF war crimes in the name of humanity do not have great career prospects.

    Alex Thomson will probably do gardening programmes after this!

    This is so sick, Israel’s objectives have made each member of their government complicit in these war crimes, clearly that’s what they are. Crimes against humanity.

Timely Reminders

"Those who crusade, not for God in themselves, but against the devil in others, never succeed in making the world better, but leave it either as it was, or sometimes perceptibly worse than what it was, before the crusade began. By thinking primarily of evil we tend, however excellent our intentions, to create occasions for evil to manifest itself."
-- Aldous Huxley

"The only war that matters is the war against the imagination. All others are subsumed by it."
-- Diane DiPrima, "Rant", from Pieces of a Song.

"It is difficult
to get the news from poems
yet men die miserably every day
for lack
of what is found there"
-- William Carlos Williams, "Asphodel, That Greeny Flower"
