This Year Its' Piracy


Israel Planning the Murder of More Peace Activists

Libya or Gaza, Which Is America’s Real War?


By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor


Last summer, Israel attacked the Gaza Flotilla, murdering 9 peace activists.  To excuse this, they created phony radio traffic, doctored videos, staged a phony investigation and set their press goons into motion, displaying their direct ownership or control of 95% of America’s “free press.”

This year, another flotilla has left for Gaza but the law is different now.  Mubarak, Israel’s puppet dictator in Egypt is awaiting trial and execution for treason and corruption.  Egypt is no longer a partner in the Gaza blockade.  Without Egypt taking part, the Gaza blockade is illegal.

International law is clear on this, unless a blockade is comprehensive, it is deemed a “paper blockade.”  Anyone can say they blockade anything but that doesn’t make it true.  The Gaza border with Egypt is now open.  A blockade by sea is now legally an act of piracy.

Stopping ships on the high seas was always piracy.  When America “quarantined” Cuba in 1962, it almost led to nuclear war with Russia.  Ships containing nuclear missiles were turned around by the US Navy.  None were boarded and no one was injured or killed.

Last year, Israel murdered 9 peace activists on ships carrying only medical aid.  Witnesses attest to executions, not killings in self defense.  Even if the ships had been fully armed and had fired on the Israeli boarding parties, they would have been within their legal rights.

Technically, there is absolutely no legal difference between Israel’s actions in the Mediterranean and the Somali pirates.  In fact, the Somali’s treat their captives better and are far more polite.

Has anyone heard of a phony Somali investigation or been subjected to a photoshopped video by them?

Real pirates, even today, seem to have a code of honor.  Calling Israel’s navy pirates is an insult.  Real pirates deserve better.

Why is Israeli piracy in the Mediterranean a “veterans issue” you might ask?

In 1967, the Israeli navy tried to board an American ship, the USS Liberty.  They napalmed and torpedoed the ship, killing or wounding 174 out of 203 crew members, strafing lifeboats and machine gunning medical personnel.  Their plan was to murder the entire crew and blame it on Egypt.

We know this for certain.  Yet, today, Israel and her friends in the US say the crew members are liars, defame the dead, and continually assail a group of American heroes, members of one of the most decorated crews in American naval history.

Until the crew members, survivors of the USS Liberty receive the apology and tens of millions owed in compensation from the government of Israel, America’s veterans are going to consider any repetition of this act of barbarity accountable.

Thus, in light of what we have learned, reliable sources come forward telling of Israel’s ties to the 9/11 attacks, we look at the Israeli video and the phony investigation.  We then think of our brothers in the New York’s fire and police who gave their lives.

We remember Building 7.

Failing to see a parallel, in light of so much new evidence would be remiss on our parts.

Seven By Seven / Seven things you need to know by 7 a.m. in our site livingston county news

The Buffalo News (Buffalo, NY) August 30, 2010 1. The Jackson Browne show with David Lindley tonight in Shea’s Performing Arts Center is sold out. Fans who couldn’t get tickets might take the Browne-Lindley live “Love Is Strange” CD out for another spin, but only about half the songs from those 2006 dates in Spain show up on the current set list. In Baltimore last week, the set included such biggies from Browne’s early years as “Fountain of Sorrows,” “The Pretender” and “Rock Me on the Water.” 2. The Bisons return to Coca-Cola Field tonight to open up their final homestand of the season against their Thruway series rivals the Syracuse Chiefs (7:05, 1520 AM). The Herd still has a chance to make the playoffs, the weather couldn’t be finer, and it’s Ollie’s Bargain Night, with $7 admission, $1 popcorn and ice cream and discounts in the gift shop.

3. Readers of the Batavia Daily News probably won’t notice a difference, but starting today their paper is being printed by the same presses that print this newspaper. Under a five-year agreement with Batavia Newspapers Corp., The Buffalo News will print the Daily News, which publishes Monday through Saturday, plus its two weekly publications — the Drummer Pennysaver and the Livingston County News. The Batavia paper decided to shut down its printing operation after it lost its contract to print local copies of USA Today.

4. With the days dwindling down to a precious few before the September primaries, two political challengers says they will make important announcements today. County Legislator Timothy Kennedy, who is running against incumbent State Sen. William Stachowski, D- Lake View, will team with anti-texting advocate Kelly Cline for an announcement at 2 p.m. in his West Seneca campaign headquarters. Meanwhile, Joseph Golombek, who is challenging incumbent Assemblyman Sam Hoyt, D-Buffalo, plans to announce his plans to reform Albany on the steps of the Mahoney State Office Building at 11 a.m. here livingston county news

5. The saga of that Niagara Square landmark, the Statler Towers, reaches another milestone today as the court-appointed bankruptcy trustee and his attorney conduct a sale in the offices of the U.S. trustee in the Olympic Towers nearby. There are just two bidders — an unnamed California investor and a partnership between local businessmen Mark D. Croce and James J. Eagan. A sale hearing will follow, and Judge Carl L. Bucki will decide between them. Then the purchaser has 60 days to decide whether to go ahead with the deal.

6. Depending on how you look at it, the Treasure Hunters Roadshow, which opens for a weeklong stay today in the Hilton Garden Inn, 4201 Genesee St., Cheektowaga, could be a bonanza. After all, they are offering to pay money for those antiques and collectibles that otherwise would continue gathering dust around the house. But sellers should do their research, too. They might begin with the monthlong investigation into Treasure Hunters Roadshow earlier this year by a newspaper in Beaumont, Texas.

7. Major tennis tournaments always arrive with more than their share of dramatic possibilities, and the U.S. Open, which begins today in Forest Hills (1 p.m. and 7 p.m., ESPN2), is no exception. Rafael Nadal will try to complete a career Grand Slam, Andy Murray will seek his first major title, and Andy Roddick will aim to end an American drought. Then then there’s Roger Federer, who has reached every final since 2004. As for the women, it’s anyone’s Open. Serena Williams is out due to foot surgery, and Justine Henin is done for the year with an elbow injury.
