Daily Mail & Israel “Strike against Islam”

A Freudian slip by the Daily Mail for their masters in Tel Aviv? or simply yet another example of the Daily Fail at work?

Of course they realised their “mistake” and “UPDATED: 09:38, 29 October 2012” the headline to:

A war promoted by a war hungry zionist media

Still don’t believe it’s a war against Islam?

Press TV & Britain’s War on Free Speech

Perfidious Albion, Our government is happy to go to war all over the world in the name of freedom, liberty and democracy. Our government will extol the virtues of freedom of expression and speech, but not in the case of Press TV, where it has prevailed upon it’s poodle the so called independent media watchdog OFCOM to remove Press TV off the Sky broadcasting platform.

The hypocrisy could not be more obvious.

After all, you can have a plethora of sex channels on British television, you can even have a gay sex channel on British television and that’s no problem for David Cameron’s media regulator, OFCOM.

You can be Rupert Murdoch at the head of a media corporation which stands accused of rampaging through practically every law in the book and yet you are deemed to be a fit and proper person to operate a television station in London.

The official reason behind the decision made by Ed Richard, the current Controller of Corporate Strategy at the BBC and the head of Britain’s Office of Communications (Ofcom), was that Press TV’s editorial team was based in Tehran.

Perhaps Mr. Richard should be reminded that CNN are head quartered in the USA.

What this decision says is that you can’t be a news channel that looks at the news from a different perspective to the grim prevailing orthodoxy of Washington and London.

It’s fair to say that Press TV has been a thorn in the side of Britain’s right-wing and pro-Israeli groups who have worked rigorously to limit its operations inside Britain.

Some political analysts have pointed squarely at the collusion between the zionist media lobby group, Britain Israel Communications & Research Centre (Bicom) & their influence over the (state-controlled) Ofcom to ban the alternative English-language channel Press TV in the UK.

Should we be really surprised?

The WikiLeak cables showed that the US state department wanted Press TV off Britain’s air waves prior to February 2010.

Our very own Foreign Office told US embassy officials who deal with Iran in February 2011 that it was “exploring ways to limit the operations of Press TV which operates a large bureau (over 80 staff) in London”.

So our Government has bent over and serviced the Americans yet again, care to remind me who actually runs this country?

Do we have any sovereignty left or are we the junior partner that merrily shoe shines for his American master.

With the pressure of hostilities being ramped up against Iran on a daily basis, I am of the view that banning Press TV is simply a ploy to silence any dissenting opinion against the manufacturing of war consent. If you deny Iran the ability of expressing really what is happening in it’s country and the motives behind the forces who are preparing to attack it, then you kill any opposing opinion to the pro war hawks.

Press TV may not be available on the Sky platform, but it’s still broadcasting into the UK. You can still view Press TV live on the internet, via a downloadable app on your smart phones or by any of the methods outlined on Press TV’s website.

They say truth is the first casualty of war.

It’s up to us to ensure that the lies told in the build up to the illegal invasion of Iraq are not allowed to be repeated again.

Q: Why do politicised comedians get sacked from the BBC? A: For criticising foreign policy & Israel

I’ve been reading Frankie Boyle’s latest book “Work! Consume! Die!” & it’s opening chapter deals with Britains foreign policy in a manner in which no other current stand up comic will do.

After all it was Frankie Boyle’s political satire on Israel that got him sacked from the Beeb.

Frankie Boyle criticised the ‘cowardly’ BBC for its Israel joke apology, stating in a full written statement:

“I think the problem here is that the show’s producers will have thought that Israel, an aggressive, terrorist state with a nuclear arsenal was an appropriate target for satire. The Trust’s ruling is essentially a note from their line managers. It says that if you imagine that a state busily going about the destruction of an entire people is fair game, you are mistaken. Israel is out of bounds.

The BBC refused to broadcast a humanitarian appeal in 2009 to help residents of Gaza rebuild their homes. It’s tragic for such a great institution but it is now cravenly afraid of giving offence and vulnerable to any kind of well drilled lobbying.”

The man himself said in a recent interview that: “safe middle-class comedy such as Have I Got News For You, is everything that’s wrong” at the BBC.

I tend to agree with him.

Have a read of what he has to say in the following excerpts from his book, and ask yourself if any of these would ever make it into any of the shows that pass themselves of as political satire comedy programmes.












The content of popular culture today in the mainstream is designed to be unchallenging, corny and weak, so the masses can take their hit without having to think and just like crack, it has an immediate high and leaves you coming back for more.

It is precisely why you get crap like Michael McIntyre and John Bishop being promoted to prime time, as they offer poor observational witterings on banal subjects like the school run. Any content that will challenge your thought process will either be shelved or given the midnight slot.

Work, consume, die, that’s all the system wants from you.

Work like a rat, consume crap that you don’t need, with money that you don’t have and then die.

The Akh is currently away and is working on a plantation picking bananas. He is developing a taste for tamales colorados and returns sometime in January 2012

Richard Desmond – Zionist Pornographer Launches “Health” Lottery

Richard Desmond, the zionist pornographer launched his own “Charity” based lottery recently, but it gives less to charity than the regular lottery does.

It will donate 20.34p per £1 ticket to charity, compared with 28p for every National Lottery ticket.

Sir Stephen Bubb, of the Association of Chief Executives of Voluntary Organisations, said Northern & Shell owner Richard Desmond was:

“profiteering on the back of charities”

“The National Lottery gives 28p, if he cares about health charities he should match that figure or he should close it down. I suspect this is more about making profits for this new venture than it is to give money to health charities.”

Richard Desmonds ascent into a respectable media magnate makes for some reading.

I mean, just look at how a sleazy zionist, trading in womens flesh moves up the ranks:

He started with such great contributions to society with skin flicks such as Asian Babes & Horny Housewives, before deciding that hardcore porn TV stations would get him more cash, so under the guise of holding company Portland TV, he owns and operates Television X & Red Hot TV.

At the same time through his other holding company Northern & Shell, he publishes the tabloid trash of the Express & Daily Star newspapers and celebrity trash magazine OK!

Most recently, Desmond went and bought the terrestrial TV station of Channel 5.

Richard Desmond is a pretty litigious chap, after all, who really wants the world to know that you are ‘Richard Desmond the pornographer’ rather than ‘Richard Desmond the media magnate’. In fact he goes to great lenghts to state porn is illegal and that he’s no porn baron.

I suppose that with the launch of his charitable lottery we really should be calling him ‘Richard Desmond the philanthropist’ after all he’s not making any money of the back of charity is he?

One is reminded of the sad tale of Mr Jones who, legend has it, lived in a small village in Wales and was once met by a visiting journalist who asked him his name. Sadly, Mr Jones passed away many years ago, but his irate reply to the journalist survives to this day:

“See that line of houses over there? I built them all, but do they call me Jones the house builder? Do they hell! See those railway lines over there? I laid them all, but do they call me Jones the engineer? Do they hell! See those bridges over that river? I built them all, but do they call me Jones the bridge builder? Do they hell! But you shag *one* sheep and…”

Mr Jones was right to feel wronged. It would appear from his claims that he achieved a great many things in his life, and that his achievements were unfairly overshadowed by a single indiscretion.

Perhaps Richard Desmond feels the same way, despite his balls-deep involvement with a wide range of pornographic interests stretching back decades. (Courtesy of Tim Ireland)

The toothless Advertising Standards Authority has launched an investigation into the misleading front pages Desmond printed on his own newspapers of course and probably all the ad space he wanted on channel 5 too.

So that’s how you go from being a pornographer to lunching with the Prime Minister David Cameron at Chequers.

You see every so often we hear the government babbling on about whether such and such Arab passes the fitness for ownership of a football club, normally overlooking their slightly questionable human rights violations back home and of course we provide them with the military fire power to do so.

Yet a scumbag zionist porn king is unopposed to owning vast swathes of the UK media.

We all got happy when the other zionist, Rupert Murdoch gets a battering.

But guess who took advantage of that situation?

News of the World closure: A boost for Richard Desmond papers

Remind me who OWNS the British media again and sets the agenda?

Maybe now you’re beginning to understand why the zionist owned media love racists like the EDL & hate Muslims

Do you remember 27 Ramadan 2004? Do you remember what they did in Fallujah?

No of course you don’t.

But I do.

I’ll never forgive & I’ll never forget.

It was the night of Al Qadr and the Masajid at Regents Park was heaving with Muslims, seeking the night of power, Muslims were seeking Allah.

The Akh was seeking answers.

The terrorists masquerading as the US Army had just launched the disparagingly termed “Operation Fajr”

They declared the city of Fallujah to be a free fire zone, meaning to them there were no civilians in a city with a population of 350,000 each and every single man, women and child was considered fair game.

Fallujah, or “the city of Mosques” as it’s known in Iraq, was being butchered.

Civilians who sought shelter in one of the two hundred plus masajids across Fallujah were hunted down and killed inside places of worship.

The BBC like many of the free British media, on the direct orders of both Blair’s Government and it’s US army commanders, blatantly failed to provide any sort of balanced reporting on the atrocities being committed in Fallujah. The BBC claimed that it saw no evidence of illegal chemical weapons being used by the Americans.

But we knew differently.

We knew this was the first time in modern warfare that White Phosphorus had been used as a thermobaric weapon on a civilian population.

We knew what the long term effects would be.

So when myself and a group of brothers demonstrated in the court yard of Regents Street Masajid, we were painted as the extremists.

The very same BBC who failed to report on Fallujah, were there on hand to brilliantly capture some footage for their own propaganda purposes. (first 40 seconds of above video).

Pathetically, that documentary talks about the usual fantasy’s about extremist Muslims.

Why?

Because we know your agenda of demonstration elections, of bringing “Freedom & Democracy” to our lands.

We have the same access to your academics who plan your foreign policy strategy;

“demonstration elections” are “organised and staged by a foreign power primarily to pacify a restive home population, reassuring it that ongoing interventionary processes are legitimate and appreciated by their foreign objects.”

(Herman and Brodhead Demonstration Elections, South End Press, 1984, p.5)

In the case of Fallujah, it is of course vital that domestic audiences in the US and UK be persuaded that their governments are killing Iraqis with the support of, even on behalf of, Iraqis themselves. The possibility that Iraqis might be dying in their tens of thousands for Western power and profit must, of course, be kept so far out of sight that it is barely even thinkable.

Years later, the truth began to emerge about the full scale of the horrors bought down on the people of Fallujah. I watched the BBC’s “Secret Iraq” documentary with tears rolling down my face.

US General Jack Keane, the chief of the US army admitting what they did was;

“Horrible….to the people of Fallujah….we did so much damage there”

We were out there, because we were fed up.

Our Muslims leaders did nothing.

The Government refused to listen.

We had no other weapon than our tongues to fight against the massacre of Fallujah by British and American forces.

Many Muslims debated over what they saw that night – many Muslims were content in perfecting themselves and doing nothing.

The Government always wants to know what makes Muslims like me agitated, what gets us all riled up?

All it takes is for me to switch on the news, Al Jazeera, Press TV and to a much lesser sense the Government propaganda channels of BBC, SKY & CNN to turn me into an extremist.

I will never forget what you did in Fallujah.

I will never forgive you for what you did in Bosnia & Chechnya.

I will never forgive you for what you continue to do in Iraq, Palestine, Afghanistan & Kashmir.

Sean Hoare NOTW Whistle Blower – Murdered because he knew too much?

Sean Hoare, The News of the World journalist who blew the whistle on the corruption in Murdoch’s media and the political class, has been found dead.

Was he murdered because he knew too much?

Let’s examine the facts.

Ever since Rupert Murdoch hired PR giants Edelman last week, we’ve been seeing a onslaught of activity by News Corp to save it’s battered reputation.

We’ve seen Murdoch’s key Colonel’s Rebekah Brooks and Les Hinton leave their positions with the NOTW and WSJ, but rather tellingly, they are still employed by News Corp.

We saw Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal Alsaud (The largest shareholder in Murdoch’s media empire, after Murdoch himself) wheeled into carrying out presser duties where he declared his undying love for Murdoch, and blamed the whole situation on a few bad apples within the company.

We saw Britain’s most powerful policeman, Met Police Commissioner Sir Paul Stephenson, quit his post after he was given a free reported £15,000 holiday at a resort where Neil Wallis, former deputy editor of NOTW, was senior management.

Let’s just work out the formula thus far:

Phone hacking + Big media + Police + Politicians X Corruption =

The coverage on Sean Hoare death has been contemptuous to say the least.

Last night’s BBC Newsnight dedicated all of two minutes on “discussing” his death.

You would have thought that a media that has been salivating over every nuance and angle connected to this ever widening story would be going into the stratosphere with the news that the man who kick started the whole affair, the man who crucially had not signed any confidentiality agreement with Murdoch’s media and thus was free to speak his mind, winds up dead.

The police of course have already been quick to state that “The death is currently being treated as unexplained, but not thought to be suspicious”.

What is clear to me is that Sean Hoare knew too much and he couldn’t be paid off.

There will now be a smear campaign against him in the media.

Already I’ve noticed a disturbing pattern with a build up of accusations about his character to undermine his credibility as a reliable source of information – alcoholic, fantasist, paranoid, conspiracy theorist, couldn’t be sure what to believe of what he said, scared of people coming to get him etc etc.

It will be interesting to see if there is a proper coronial inquiry into this death.

As Steve Richards commented in The Independent recently, “Here was a company that evidently thought it was powerful enough to get away with it, able to block police enquiries and to pay off victims of crime.”

Phone hacking + Big media + Police + Politicians X Corruption = Whistle blower Sean Hoare murdered.

Do the math, no conspiracy theory needed.

What happened to the last whistle blower to break ranks?

Dr. David Kelly was “suicided”.

His formula was very similar.

Iraq + Big media + WMD’s + Politicians X Oil = Whistle blower Dr. David Kelly murdered.

Do the maths, no conspiracy theory needed.

Rambo – How an Anti War Book became a Hollywood Pro War Blockbuster

The film “Rambo” is a classic tale of how a anti-war book written about the post Vietnam era in America is hijacked by Hollywood to glorify violence and war, the exact psyche of the American system, that the author David Morrell examined in his 1972 novel “First Blood”.

If, like me you were a child of the Eighties, then you grew up on a diet of “big gun americana” movies, I’m talking about Stallone & Schwarzenegger and everything that promoted the american way.

It didn’t matter how crap the quality of your pirated VHS version was, Rambo was on heavy rotation where ever I went.

Years later I found out it was based on a book, and decided to have a read of it.

What I found out as a child barely into my double digits was that the film was far removed from the book.

Rambo first learns about the death of one of his former soldier buddies, the film doesn’t mention what the book did, and that was he died from cancer – the after effects of the american army spraying millions of litres of Agent Orange into the jungles of Vietnam.

Why would the American army – do a such a thing?

Yeah the Vietnamese were the bad guys, but why would the americans also kill their own soldiers (thought a 8 year old Akh).

Another example was that if you’ve actually watched the film, ask yourself how many people actually die?

The answer is one

The sheriffs deputy that gets hit with a rock and falls out of the helicopter (that’s what happened, I’m not making it up)

The book was far more brutal, Rambo killed literally every single figure of authority, or that represented the police or the army that he came into contact with, even the dogs weren’t spared.

Eventually the Colonel that Rambo served under in Vietnam is called up to reach out to his creation and after that speech he persuades Rambo to give up and escorts him out…and that’s where the film ends.

True to form, reading the book I was absolutely shocked as to what the ending was….and I only found out this week that the ending was actually filmed, but it didn’t make the final cut as it didn’t go down well with the test audiences.

Why would it?

After all Uncle Sam’s boys would never kill themselves.

I cross posted words from John Pilger last year when he spoke about Hollywood approving american imperialism, whilst portraying itself as the aggrieved party.

Years later to satisfy Hollywood’s bloodlust, Rambo III was made, this time Rambo was siding with the Afghan Mujahideen against the USSR.

Of course this served as great propaganda at the time with the americans happy to slowly bleed the russians, with the Afghan Mujahideen being in the firing line.

I was over the moon to see Rambo fighting alongside the Mujahideen and kicking some russian ass, after all, isn’t that exactly what the power of a lobby should be? to use the mass media to win hearts and minds?

There was no book for Rambo III, but I sat glued to the end credits, and found that the film wasn’t made on location in Afghanistan, but filmed in israel, and what was even worse, nearly all the Afghan Mujahideen were played by israeli’s too.

I found out at a very young age that you shouldn’t believe what you see in the media. Perhaps Rambo left an indelible mark on my psyche too…who really runs Hollywood?
