    "Unconventional Weapons against The People of Gaza"

    "This report confirms that these attacks are quite deliberately directed against civilians, using new unconventional weapons"

    "This is a carefully planned humanitarian catastrophe. How can anybody in their right mind support the actions of the Israeli government"

    "Read this interview with a distinguished and courageous Norwegian doctor"…

    NOT A CHANCE…They even have that in their hip pocket

    After what has happened in Gaza I now TOTALLY believe this…

    "Nuclear War against Iran"

    "The launching of an outright war using nuclear warheads against Iran is now in the final planning stages"

    "Coalition partners, which include the US, Israel and Turkey are in "an advanced stage of readiness"."

    "Various military exercises have been conducted, starting in early 2005. In turn, the Iranian Armed Forces have also conducted large scale military maneuvers in the Persian Gulf in December in anticipation of a US sponsored attack"…

    I put this on again it goes with the above like a hand in a glove.

    ""….The United States no longer … sees any point in being reticent or even devious. It puts its cards on the table without fear or favour. It quite simply doesn't give a damn about the United Nations, international law or critical dissent, which it regards as impotent and irrelevant."

    "It also has its own bleating little lamb tagging behind it on a lead, the pathetic and supine Great Britain"…

    This is how bad it really is they don't give a damn what you think, they don't give a damn how much you protest.

    From the Stop the War Coalition:

    GOVERNMENT BLOCKS GAZA DEMONSTRATION AT ISRAELI EMBASSY

    Ministers are obstructing the holding of a national demonstration on Saturday

    to protest against the Israeli invasion of Gaza, march organisers said today.

    Officials of the Royal Parks Agency, acting under the authority of Culture

    Secretary Andy Burnham, have blocked a plan to hold a rally in Kensington

    Palace Gardens near the Israeli Embassy in London.

    The demonstration, organised by the Stop the War Coalition, Palestine

    Solidarity Campaign and British Muslim Initiative, is expected to attract tens

    of thousands of people from across the country, outraged at the massacre of

    Palestinians taking place in Gaza.

    "The arrangements for our march and rally were notified to the police days

    ago," Stop the War Coalition chair Andrew Murray said today. "We have now

    found that they are being blocked by the Parks authorities, in consultation

    with ministers, on the spurious pretext of a lack of precedent.

    "This nonsensical argument recalls government attempts to stop the rally

    against the Iraq war in February 2003 on the grounds that the grass in Hyde

    Park might be damaged.

    "Ministers should understand that the anger against Israeli aggression against

    the Palestinian people is also without precedent. We are determined to

    exercise our democratic right to express that outrage in a public space near

    the Israeli Embassy.

    "Attempting to block our plans – which have been drawn up with a view to

    ensuring a peaceful and orderly protest on Saturday – risks making thousands of

    people angrier still.

    "We are therefore seeking an urgent meeting with Mr Burnham to ensure that he

    removes these bureaucratic obstructions and allows our protest to proceed as

    planned."

    Obviously people should march to show solidarity with the Palestinians. If the marches here and elsewhere help bring forward the cessation of Israel's attack by even a single minute, it may save some Gazan's life.

    But for our own country Saturday is now also about defending our right to peaceful protest – marching from The North East to the South West corner of Hyde Park, without any threat to the Israeli Embassy, which is a fortress anyway. If only small numbers arrive at Speakers Corner on Saturday then there is a chance that the protest will be crushed.

    But if large numbers arrive – which is likely, as 70,000 attended on Sat 3rd Jan – then "Culture Secretary Andy Burnham" (which has got to be the second worst oxymoron ever after "peace envoy Tony Blair") will be forced to back down, and that is news, which means it will be harder for the BBC to refuse to report it, which means that the message will get out that people in this country can do something to stop the British government colluding with the war crimes & massacre.
