Yes, I know it’s absurd to promote the mass murder, some call genocide, by Israel upon the Citizens of Gaza and then to have representatives of those war crimes twist our heads 100 degrees anti-clockwise and to nominate our Prime Minister for the Peace Prize.
Of course, there’s little left of the value of this prize as it was given to the war criminal down south. This has given the award a tarnish that would take decades of polishing to remove. With the Harper nomination the tarnish has etched deep within any grace the prize had left.
However bizarre Harper has stated that Hamas was to blame for the children of Gaza blown up by Israeli bombs and missiles from fighter/bombers and by mortar fire from tanks and artillery. None of which the isolated people of Gaza has or had.
Harper said Hamas started the war because the terrorist organization wants to destroy the state of Israel. I suppose Hamas, the people of Gaza and the people of the West Bank don’t want Israel as a state upon their land. Why should they? I also believe strongly that Hamas, duly elected is not the terrorist here but Israel is the terrorist and the Zionists have been terrorists in Palestine since 1917.
But these are facts beyond the apparent shallow depth of the Harper mind.
“Harper added that if a terrorist organization were attacking Canadians, there would be a similar response from Canada.”
I guess the closest we could come to that here in Canada is if the rest of Canada were to steal portions of Quebec and if the fought back we’d label them a terrorist faction and we’d feel free to blow up their children.
In fact, this essentially what Harper has promoted as right for the Israelis in Palestine.
This is the terror and the murder and the war crimes Harper is promoting without a blink for other MP’s except for Elizabeth May and her Green Party. Hurrah for her!
“Israeli strikes hit a crowded shopping area in Gaza City Wednesday, hours after tank shells tore through the walls of a U.N. school crowded with war refugees in the deadliest of a series of air and artillery attacks that pushed the Palestinian death toll above 1,300 in more than three weeks of fighting.”
Another woman of strength and a true sense of justice has broken with the whimpish void of Mulcair to make a strong statement against he actions of Israel.
“The NDP deputy leader, Libby Davies, is urging Canadians to “speak out” against the growing bloodshed in Gaza.”
On that note I’d like to make comment upon ‘caucus discipline’ which curtails party members from speaking out on their own and accepting the view of the party as a whole and for only the leader and the ‘official party critic’ speaking out to their constituents and to the people of Canada. We’re supposed to honour free speech here but this attitude ruins that premise altogether.
I want to hear my MP’s speaking out against the Harper acceptance of the nomination as a Peace Prize potential candidate. Harper is a miserable warmonger who took us in with the USA to kill a vibrant Libya; he backed up the USA destruction of Syria (yes I’ll state it now rather than wait 30 for the admission out of the USA) and, of all things dirty and mindless, Harper stated he would have taken Canada into Iraq.
Interview with Terry O’Neill of BC Report newsmagazine, 1999
“This government’s only explanation for not standing behind our allies is that they couldn’t get the approval of the Security Council at the United Nations – a body [on] which Canada doesn’t even have a seat.”
This is a man of PEACE! Not on your life!
“Don’t forget that the muddy and bloodied waters of the Ukraine is where Harper has taken Canada by his government’s support of the coup and regime change in that country. The Ukrainian fiasco will be one of the main reasons, out of hundreds, that’s going to decimate the Conservative party come the next election. Harper and gang has worked overtime to hand the country to the Liberals.” http://dodocanspell.blogspot.ca/2014/07/one-more-warmonger-bites-dust-arseniy.html
Harper, also supports the torture on going in Guantanamo Bay Detention Centre by never bleeping a word against the hell these innocent men are going through as their lives waste away. I hope you know that they’ve been proved innocent many months ago.
Harper by not opening his mouth also supported the the torture of Chelsea Manning and of the US sending Arar to Syria to be tortured.
A man of PEACE. Not in this lifetime.
And again Harper speaks to the ending of human rights; “Human rights commissions, as they are evolving, are an attack on our fundamental freedoms and the basic existence of a democratic society… It is in fact totalitarianism. I find this is very scary stuff.” Stephen Harper. ”
Here is an online petition to deny the nomination of Stephen Harper for the Peace Prize.
Stephen Harper also supports the illegal, criminal stealing of Palestinian land, Aparteid actions in the West Bank/Gaza, illegal building of Israeli settlements, taking Palestinian water -73% for Israel – 10% for illegal settlements (and rising) – leaving only 17% for Palestinians that own the water.
Through aggressive silence Harper supports the cruelties of the IDF throughout the West bank that ignore the rights of Palestinians and ignore most of the assaults upon Palestinians including regular stone throwing of Zionist kids encouraged by parents.
This is our Peaceful Leader. Have no doubt that his thoughts upon peace are actually thoughts of hate and the endearment of himself.
Here’s another petition that some might have some thoughts about:
Arrest Harper For Inciting Genocide
I wouldn’t go that far at this point but I’m sure some feel there is truth behind this as a message. The attached video says a lot.

First let’s consider a bit of history beginning in 1953 when the CIA and MI6 created the coup of a democratic Iran. Yes Iran was a democratic nation but the UK was having problems with its oil.
To be concise the fact remains that the UK had not paid the agreed by treaty royalties for a number of years; was treating Iranians like second class citizens and worse.
In corporate offices there was a defined ceiling for anyone Iranian. No matter one’s skill no Iranian could move up past a certain rung in the ladder.
In the oil fields Iranian oil workers were treated in non-human manner. They were given oil barrels with which to construct their living quarters; they were given lousy pay; they were treated like garbage by the British racists.
These efforts by the Brits to push down the Iranians lead to a population that hated the Brits and with good reason. Therefore in a democratic election a man by the name of Mossandeq won on the popularity of his wish to nationalize Iran’s oil because of the breaking of treaty by the Brits and because of the bigotry of the Brits running the show in Iran.
Iran’s oil was nationalized and the Brits turned to the USA for help. The CIA created a coup and the democratic government was kicked out and replaced with the Shah as a puppet dictator. The US and the UK created the oil company British/American Oil – B/A and stole Iran’s oil splitting it 50/50 between themselves and paying paltry monies for the oil they took.
But that was not the end of it for Iran. The US/CIA then created its own Secret Police – SAVAK. The secret police dealt with dissenters through dire warnings; beatings and killings. Student activist leaders were often thrown from the roofs of their schools; others were picked off the street in broad daylight to never be seen again and others dragged from their homes in the dead of night.
This continued until the hostage taking of the US Embassy in Tehran. Please ignore Ben Affleck’s repulsive ignoring of the facts in his movie Argo!
Though the US claims that the US Embassy was inviolate it really wasn’t because of the CIA running such cruelty out of the embassy. The US embassy definitely lost its inviolate status in a big, big way with its criminal assault upon Iran.
This is a bit of background.
In 1979 past students took over the US Embassy and they had some simple wishes that would have quickly ended the stand-off. They wanted the US to apologize to Iranians for all the grief the US had laid upon them since 1953. They wanted the US to not bother Iran in the future; to mind its own business. But President Carter refused and himself became ineffective as his foolish attempts to get the embassy back and/or to rescue the hostages failed miserably and actually upped the stakes.
The ayatollah then entered the argument and the arguing lasted for some 444 days.
Now we’ll broach the subject of the ancient Jewish population in Persian and now Iran. Jews had always had a good life in Iran with a seat in government always set aside for a Jewish representative elected by the Jewish population and this remained after the Iranian Revolution of 1979. Iranians, for the most part, were well used to the Jews in Iran and the Jews used to their lives in Iran. They had good lives according to choices they could make as Jews in Iran had been doing for 2,400 years.
They could have their alcohol, their synagogues, their own schools. In Jewish populations too small to afford their own schools they were educated for free as with all Iranians and to not be forced to take the Iranian religious studies given in schools throughout Iran.
It is the same today for Jews in Iran but there are growing prejudices in Iran against Jews. This is not because of Iran but because of the hate swarming like locusts out of Israel at every chance. Israel has always been a scornful nation of Iran and this is becoming more and more a thorn in the side of the non-Jewish Iranians.
Just look at the past years of the hatred from the West and the gigantic hatreds coming out of Israel. It’s a virtual terror storm!
So it is true that feelings in many Iranians are changing toward Iran’s Jewish population and it’s only normal considering the crap coming out of the US and worse out of Israel with its some 800 nuclear bombs accusing Iran as being the danger without any nuclear bombs.
So, the racism, now growing in Iran, is a direct result of Israel’s attitude including the murders inside Iran of Iranian scientists.
Is the conflict in Ukraine a non-international armed conflict or an international armed conflict?
“Mounting evidence from various sources in late August indicates the participation of Russian military forces in the conflict in eastern Ukraine. Hostilities between Russian and Ukrainian armed forces amount to an international armed conflict in which the four Geneva Conventions of 1949 would be applicable in their entirety as well as the First Additional Protocol to the Geneva Conventions relating to the Protection of Victims of International Armed Conflicts (Protocol I).”
Human Rights Warch Is Out-To-Lunch:
* The obvious, yet ignored, interference by the USA created the heat that led from peaceful protests to violence to war. There are all sorts of proofs that the USA put in mercenaries (much in the manner they did in Syria and Libya before that). We know damned well that this is true as they used Blackwater mercenaries in Iraq a lot and some of these mercenaries actions are being dealt with in the American courts rather than the International courts where the truth ought to be brought out.
*It’s interesting that Human Rights Watch infers that the USA is not behaving in a wrongful manner yet it claims that Russia is. Sometimes I have grave troubles with Human Rights Watch when it blithers out of its way to ignore the provocative actions of the USA.
* Certainly the laws giverning war govern over the actions of all parties in all the eventualities and the conduct of all. However, Human Rights Watch seems to go out of its way to protect the US from and governance by International Law one bloody war after another.
“Even during armed conflict situations, in which the laws of war apply, or in times of occupation, international human rights law remains in effect. Ukraine and Russia are both party to a number of human rights treaties, including the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR), the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) and the Convention againstTorture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment. These treatiesoutline guarantees for fundamental rights, many of which correspond to the rights to whichcombatants and civilians are entitled under international humanitarian law (e.g. theprohibition on torture and inhuman and degrading treatment, the requirements for nondiscrimination, right to a fairtrial).”
Odd, how none of the above seem to apply equally to the USA and/or Israel yet are always considered in the damning of any country opposing either the USA or Israel. Not only are the Ukraine and Russia governed by these laws but so are all countries including YES, including the USA that is usually invoved to some extent in so many horrid wars round ourpoorworld.
“Certain fundamentalrights—such as the right to life and the right to be secure from torture and other ill-treatment,the prohibition on unacknowledged detention, the duty to ensure judicialreview of the lawfulness of detention, and rights to a fair trial—must always be respected,even during a public emergency.”
* Yes this is very clear and I’m certain that any clear mind, not prohibitively damaged by by the profusion of contemptable reports by the corporate press, would easily see that it is the USA and its NATO allies that are criminally ruthless in the Ukraine and complicently anti-Russia. I’d suggest taking much of the corporate press with a grain of salt at the very best of times. The crap about Russia is ruthless and perfumed with vile hatreds of the Cold War. We were past it except for the USA and now it’s dogging us again in a very dangerous manner.
* I’m going to refrain from getting all butt-ugly about the insecent extremes of illegal violence by the USA in all its wars and in all its CIA gambits. Nor am I going to get all butt-ugly about the massive International crimes flooding out from Israel with the stink of burned flesh and conspiracy to steal.
But think of this quote for a quiet moment of silence for those of Gaza and the West Bank please. “International humanitarian law provides protections to civilians and other noncombatants from the hazards of armed conflict. ”
“International humanitarian law provides protections to civilians and other noncombatants from the hazards of armed conflict. It addresses the conduct of hostilities—the means and methods of warfare—by all sides to a conflict. Foremost is the rule that parties to a conflict must distinguish at all times between combatants and civilians. Civilians may never be the deliberate target of attacks. As discussed below, parties to the conflict are required to take all feasible precautions to minimize harm to civilians and civilian objects and to refrain from attacks that fail to discriminate between combatants and civilians, or would cause disproportionate harm to the civilian population.”
*Somehow this quote eludes the accusation by Human Rights Watch of Russia being in the wrong here. Of course if one drowns oneself in the blather of the corporate press lies you may have an akwardley different view. Becareful the smoke of burning lies don’t corrupt your view.
*Looking at the above quote one easily sees that it essentially lays out the criminality of the coup-installed illegitamate government of the Ukraine and the darkness of American advice. Clearly the Ukraine has been bombing the hell out of the Eastern provinces with not even a tinker’s damn of protecting anyone in their way. To be concise the Ukraine. as advised by the USA, is acting in a criminal manner as laid out by the above quote from Human Rights Watch trying to accuse the separatists and Russia for the crimes of the Ukraine.
“The laws of war limit attacks to “military objectives.” Military objectives are personnel andobjects that are making an effective contribution to military action and whose destruction,capture, or neutralization offers a definite military advantage. This would include enemyfighters, weapons and ammunition, and objects being used for military purposes. Whilehumanitarian law recognizes that some civilian casualties are inevitable during armedconflict, it imposes a duty on parties to the conflict at all times to distinguish betweencombatants and civilians, and to target only combatants and other military objectives.Civilians lose their immunity from attack during the time they are “directly participating inthe hostilities.” ”
*I don’t want to repeat the above assault upon the Human Rights Watch agenda as the wrongfulness is virtually the same. Applicable to the USA’s many conflicts and also to the rabidly repeated assaults by the Israelis in the continued attempt of genocide in Gaza.
*In all things in war the ordinary folk must be protected and no vacuous reasoning can state otherwise.
“Direct attacks on civilians and civilian objects, as discussed above, are prohibited.The laws of war also prohibit indiscriminate attacks. Indiscriminate attacks are those thatstrike military objectives and civilians or civilian objects without distinction. Examples ofindiscriminate attacks are those that are not directed at a specific military objective or thatuse weapons that cannot be directed at a specific military objective.”
*Very clear to not be the ability of the separatists yet clearly the attitude of the illegal Ukraine government backed by the US in all ways and its butt-sniffing doggy followers from a variety of countries.
“Forces deployed in populated areas must avoid locating military objectives near denselypopulated areas and endeavor to remove civilians from the vicinity of military activities. Belligerents areprohibited from using civilians to shield military objectives or operations from attack.“Shielding” refers to purposefully using the presence of civilians to protect militaryforces or areas, making them immune from attack”
*Obviously to people other than Human Rights Watch this is the action of the Ukrainian military as advised by advisers from the USA. Yes they are undoubtedly on the ground offering ‘expertice’ such as; “Don’t worry about it. Just do as we say.”
“The war crime of “shielding” has been defined as intentionally using the presence of civilians to render certain points, areas, or military forces immune from military attack. While it may be unlawful, as noted above, to place forces, weapons and ammunition within or near densely populated areas, it is shielding only when there is a specific intent to use the civilians to deter an attack. Opposing forces may attack a military target that is making use of human shields, but it is still obligated to determine whether the attack is proportionate—that is, that the expected loss of civilian life and property is not greater than the anticipated military advantage of the attack.”
*Now this is a wicked bit that is said to have happened in Gaza by Hamas militants. ie: That human sheilds have been used. This is not a foreign claim in the conflicts in Palestine as invaded again and again by Israel but the only true human sheilds have been the Israelis using captured Palestinians as sheilds in the Israeli aggression in the West Bank.
*Proportionality is a bit of a rut. How much military gain can be assigned to one non-combatant accused of being a human sheild. I’d place the proportionality here at zero.
“Civil airports, roads, and bridges are civilian objects that become military objectives subject to attack if they are actually used for military purposes or military objectives are located on or within them. Even then, the rule of proportionality applies, requiring the parties to the conflict to weigh the short- and long-term harm on civilians against the military advantage served. They must consider all ways of minimizing the impact on civilians; and they should not undertake attacks if the expected civilian harm outweighs the definite military advantage.”
*Again a rule that could take years to work out the right or the wrong. It seems an obfuscation because the makers of the rules of war just can’t say that there is zero tolerance when non-combatant lives are at stake. If this rule were used as stated then perhaps the whole bloody war would face a stalemate and require a ‘political’ working out of the conflict.
We’re now well into the ratty section of law and order and the military crimes that are usually ignored for the country with the most weapons. So I’ll just leave it here for now.
Here is the full attempt by Human Rights Watch to attempt to blame Russia for the crimes of the USA advised Ukraine.
I leave out the US journalists because the US ignores these Journalists
