“There is no credible indication of what protection will be given to those who give evidence” –  Visvanathan Rudrakumaran, Trans National Govt. of Tamil Eelam

Colombo Gazette

(COLOMBO) Former LTTE member and peace negotiator and now head of the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) Visvanathan Rudrakumaran has rejected the war crimes investigation to be conducted by the Presidential Commission of Inquiry, saying he has more faith in a UN led probe than a domestic probe.

“Democrats have formed a united front in support of the bank, seizing on an opening to appeal to the hearts and wallets of the business community ahead of the November elections.”Politico’s MJ Lee

(WASHINGTON DC)  The Export-Import Bank is seeking a five-year reauthorization and an extra $20 billion in permitted lending this year.  Republicans and Democrats joined together in 2012 to win bipartisan support for the bank’s last reauthorization which also raised the bank’s lending cap to $140 billion.

Israel “Defends” Itself By “Mowing the Grass”

Years from now, Israeli veterans of this and other wars, will be asked, “what did you do in your war, Daddy”? The answer Daddy gives about “mowing the grass” will tell us what sort of nation Israel has built for the future.

(CHICAGO)  Once every two years or so, depending on the U.S. and Israeli strategic and political calendars, Israel, the fourth largest military power in the world, descends on Gaza to “mow the grass”.

Mama, habibti mama

When you hold me in your arms

Don’t you cry

Hold your tears,  show me your smile

Where I am now, there are no bombs

No bullets shooting, no guns

No more fear and no more pain

All quiet and serene

(DAYTONA BEACH)  Carin Bondar, a worried but reconciled Vancouver writer, supports the view of the David Suzuki Foundation, from whence the founder and namesake has recently retired, presumably to spend more time with non-GMOs. And sick and tired, I understand, of banging his head against the conservative, anti-tree-hugging  establishment.

Dr. Fishman’s further attempts to influence the medical profession and downplay the word “addiction” from 2007 until 2012? 

Marianne Skolek Global News Centre

(MYRTLE BEACH)  I have been writing articles over the years on the prescription opioid/heroin epidemic crippling the U.S. and Canada and the contributing factors involved. These factors are the physicians paid by the pharmaceutical industry to write books and speak directly to the medical profession downplaying the long term use of opioids for chronic pain.

Operation Security Bottom (SATIRE)

Pluginyahu1The Palestinians were naïve if they, even for one second, believed that the Jewish Genius was going to be intimidated by this new form of Islamo-Tunnelism.

Osama Gil-laden  in Jerusalem

Avi Dichter, former head of the Israel Security Agency and homefront defense minister, declared earlier this week that “there is no Iron Dome against the terror tunnels.” The message is devastatingly clear; the Jewish people are now attacked from below – the bottom front is bare and widely open. This development is regarded in Israel as a serious intelligence blunder. It needs to be addressed immediately. More than a few Israeli politicians and commentators call for a probe of the failure of Israel intelligence once Operation Protective Edge comes to its conclusion.
