Human rights of the West:  British army to be sued for war crimes over its role in Fallujah attacks.

Not even the birds are immune from oppression in Iraq.

‘US Photo Exhibit: Israel blocks Palestinian access to water.’ Detailed article in National Geographic’s special issue ‘Water, Our Thirsty World’, April 2010.

Jewish Settlers: ‘We’ll burn you all.’ More proof why Europe, as an effective player in Middle East politics, has become an irrelevant entity. From the article (my emphasis in red):

Such a complacent European stance will not have a lasting political influence in favour of the cause of freedom and democracy in Palestine. That is why, and since the Zionist government realizes that blackmailing Europeans is an effective policy, prevented a European parliamentary delegation from visiting Gaza without fearing any firm European reaction. The Europeans found it sufficient to say “it was strange for the visit to be cancelled a few hours after the EU Council statement which is supported by a strong European position in relation to the creation of a Palestinian state within the borders of 1967, and stopping settlement in the West Bank, including “East Jerusalem.’”

But the fact is that the EU did not express a “strong position” in relation to Jerusalem and the two-state solution. It rather bowed to Israeli blackmail and turned a blind eye to Israeli crimes against humanity. That is why it had to accept more Israeli blackmail when its MEPs were prevented from entering Gaza, and had their permission canceled three hours after it was given. This official humiliation of the MEPs would not have been accepted by the smallest country in the world. So, how could it be accepted by the largest parliament Europe has ever known?
