The Special Tribunal for Rwanda was  established by a Security Council influenced overwhelmingly by two members of the Security Council , to camouflage the developments in the region, the military backing to the  Ugandan -RPF  invasion  and subject to trials  only the political  opponents of the Rwanda Patriotic Force of Paul Kagame .

Madsen's Oil Voclano The Size Of Mt Everest - By Wayne Madsen (9/6/10) PDF Print E-mail

WMR has been informed by sources in the US Army Corps of Engineers, FEMA, and Florida Department of Environmental Protection  that the Obama White House  and British Petroleum  (which pumped $71,000 into Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, more than McCain or Clinton) are covering up the magnitude of the volcanic-level oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico and working together to limit BP’s liability for damage caused by what can be called a “mega-disaster”. Obama and his senior White House staff, as well as Interior Secretary Salazar, are working with BP’s chief executive officer Hayward on legislation that would raise the cap on liability for damage claims from those affected by the oil disaster from $75m to $10b. However, WMR’s federal and Gulf state sources are reporting the disaster has the real potential cost of at least $1,000b. Critics of the deal being worked out between Obama and Hayward point out that $10b is a mere drop in the bucket for a trillion dollar disaster but also note that BP, if its assets were nationalized, could fetch almost a trillion dollars for compensation purposes. There is talk in some government circles, including FEMA, of the need to nationalize BP in order to compensate those who will ultimately be affected by the worst oil disaster in the history of the world.

Kevin Ovenden, a representative of Viva Palestina, was on the main ship of the Freedom Flotilla when Israeli soldiers descended onto the deck Рhe spoke from Turkey to Si̢n Ruddick

“We knew the Israelis were going to attack, or intercept us in some way. At 11pm we had the first contact. A visual warning was that two Israeli warships were approaching us, followed by a third.

“We were 90 miles north of the Israeli coast, and 22 miles away from the buffer zone that Israel has set from its shores.

"We had tight organisation procedures in place and people were prepared.

"The captain and the most experienced activists on board said that people should rest. Many people did while others stayed on the look out.

"At 4.25am the attack began. The warship had neared and commandoes were lowering themselves onto the deck from helicopters. There were two motorised dinghies, carrying 14-20 commandoes, on either side of the boat.

Announcement By George Galloway (8/6/10) PDF Print E-mail

Viva Palestina founder George Galloway, speaking to a crowd of around 20,000 protesting outside the Israeli Embassy in London, revealed the latest plan to bring about the end of the siege on Gaza.

Two simultaneous convoys - one by land the other by sea - will set forth on SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 12th bound for Gaza. Viva Palestina, the International Committee to break the Siege on Gaza and any allies who will join us will organise the two
convoys.

The land convoy will leave from London and travel across Europe to Turkey Syria and ultimately through the Rafah Gate into Gaza. Co-operation will be offered and sought with all relevant governments and agencies. It is expected the convoy will
pick up vehicles and volunteers in each country through which it passes. The target is to enter Gaza with 500 vehicles.

The sea convoy will travel around the Mediterranean gathering ships, cargo, volunteers from each country. The target is to enter Gaza with sixty ships.

The aim will be to arrive on Gaza's frontiers at the same time. And to enter with the world's largest ever aid convoys. And to thereby render the siege null and void.

Blockade of Gaza by Israel Inconsistent with UN Membership - By Niloufer Bhagwat (8/6/10) PDF Print E-mail
By Niloufer Bhagwat   
Tuesday, 08 June 2010 23:03

The Arab State of Palestine was sanctioned by the same Resolution 181 of the United Nations that created the State of Israel, therefore it logically follows that the State of Palestine cannot be refused recognition by the UN as it has been created by the United Nations . The question of any veto now being exercised by the Security Council in respect of the admission of the State of Palestine to the United Nations does not arise and will be invalid, as de jure and de facto a State of Palestine has already been accepted by the Permanent Members of the Security Council .

The State of Palestine exists de jure because of the Resolution creating the two States by one and the same Resolution demarcating the geographical territories of the two States and their respective territories on land and sea . Whereas de facto , the Palestinian territories and the territories of the State of Israel were peopled by Palestinians and the Palestinian people till to-day reside in the West Bank , Gaza , in the Occupied territories and were forced into exile by terrorism , war and violence from the territories of the State of Israel , which proceeded thereafter to occupy territory of the State of Palestine .The Palestinian refugees forcibly exiled have the right of return in accordance with International Conventions on the status of refugees.
