Occupation of Palestine – Perpetrated by White Supremacy Zionism?

The Zionist Occupation of Palestine

Abdullah al Andalusi of Muslim Debate Initiative, conducts a talk on a subject of the Zionist occupation of Palestine, its history, motives and recent events. This is followed by an interesting and lively questions and answers session. This talk was hosted by a students union society.

This event took place on May seventh, two thousand nine at the Latymer High School and sixth form college in London, England. An audience consisted of students from European and Jewish backgrounds. Mr. Andalusi discusses his view point that an occupation by Israel of Palestine is due in large part because of a Zionist movement.

Abdullah al Andalusi is an Islamic activist, thinker, international speaker and debater. Also, he co-founded the Muslim Debate Initiative in two thousand nine. Mr. Andalusi’s premise is basically that Israel is a colonizing force in Palestine.

He sees Israeli troops as being aggressors and Palestinians as victims. He claims they have a right to defend themselves from foreign invaders. A current Zionist movement dates back allegedly to late nineteenth century or eighteen hundreds.

Some scholars claim this movement dates back to an even earlier eight teen seventy time frame. Is a current Zionist movement legitimate or are they perpetrating not necessary death and violence? Many Zionists claim they deserve to return to their alleged ancient homeland called Israel.

The current state of Israel was created in nineteen forty eight. Was a creation of Israel justified or an act of war? Israel continues to literally kick Palestinians out of their homes and homeland.

Do you think that an occupation of Palestine is because of Zionism? Do you think this is justified or not?

Anti War Demonstration – Which Side of Military Terror Are You on?

In Bed With a Mosquito

A documentary short by Sarah Frank. Music by Noisola and Mary Timony. Betty Brassell has spent nearly every day of her retirement, rain or shine, protesting in some streets of New York City, her walker currently emblazoned with “Arrest Cheney”.

But when an injury sidelines her from a busy schedule of protests and vigils, Betty, seventy eight, is home bound and finds herself wondering how much longer she will be able to take it to those streets. “In Bed with a Mosquito” is an intimate portrait of activism and aging in New York City.

Lee’s Life For Lies

This Release is based on personal information found on a flash memory device belonging to specialist Lee Kendell Tucker (United States Marine 590-80-5469), captured after him being wasted during an ambush on his vehicle. Lee him self was an anti war activist, proving that many United States soldiers serving in Iraq are against this war and they have no reason to fight and die.

Which Side Are You on?

A life of a social activist is one of peace, pain, and protest. Through trials and tribulations of fighting for what they believe in, a community of passionate and highly motivated individuals emerges. Elaine Brower is no stranger to this community of social protesters.

Her involvement in an anti war movement grew rapidly in two thousand three. Now, she joins thousands of people in a fight against war, with one person in mind, her son. This is a documentary produced by Rowan University students from November two thousand seven to May two thousand eight.

Free Trades – Are Free Trade Agreements Really About Slave Labor?

The Miami Model

Against a prescribed template of paramilitary oppression, information warfare, and profit above all values, activists converge in Miami to demonstrate grassroots resistance, creative action, and international solidarity, a clash between competing visions of globalization, soon to be known as the Miami Model. Indymedia activists shot hundreds of hours documenting two thousand three Free Trade Area of Americas protests in Miami and shaped it into a documentary that cuts through mass media blackout to reveal brutal repression and assault on civil liberties that took place, as well as inspiring alternatives to capitalist globalization that were also in full effect in Miami. Are free trade agreements really about free trade or more specifically succinctly slavery?

In November of two thousand three, trade ministers from thirty four countries met in Miami, Florida, to negotiate a Free Trade Area of the Americas also known as FTAA. A Free Trade Area of Americas threatened to devastate workers, environment, public services like health care, education, water, to destroy indigenous rights and cultural diversity across North, Central, as well as South America. Thousands of union members, environmentalists, feminists, anarchists, students, farm workers, media activists, and human rights activists who gathered in Miami to struggle against a Free Trade Area of Americas were brutally attacked with rubber bullets, pepper spray, electric guns, shock batons, embedded reporters, information warfare, all coordinated by the United States Department of Homeland Security.

Collectively, Indymedia activists shot hundreds of hours of video footage documenting Free Trade Area of Americas protests in Miami. This footage has been edited by a Free Trade Area of Americas Miami video working group into a documentary that cuts through a mass media blackout to reveal the brutal repression and assault on civil liberties that took place, as well as some life affirming and inspiring alternatives to capitalist globalization that were also in full effect in Miami. Are free trade agreements really more about slavery?

Trade Policy – Is The World Trade Organization Really Beneficial?

Breaking The Spell

An hour long look at the nineteen ninety nine Seattle World Trade Organization protests and some anarchists who traveled there to set a new precedent for militant confrontation, this documentary picks up where Pickaxe left off. Filmed in a thick of some action, including footage that aired nationally on Sixty Minutes, it captures a moment when world history was up for grabs. Is the World Trade Organization a legitimate free trade organization or an oppressive group with out transparency?

In nineteen ninety nine around fifty thousand protesters in Seattle, Washington showed up for a World Trade Organization meeting. Allegedly this meeting was shutdown because of those protesters that appeared. In years after this legendary confrontation the World Trade Organization had problems passing their agenda items.

Is the World Trade Organization dead because of international opposition or will it continue to try to affect international trade? One tenant of opposition is a fact that the World Trade Organization uses corporate interests in wealthy countries to obtain labor from other countries that lack wealth. Many critics claim that this organization is actually a power grab for slave labor.

Critics claim that not only does the World Trade Organization create hunger, but also kills people with its policies. How can there be any legitimacy with an organization that favors wealthy countries over poor nations? Are these critical assertions false or are there merit to these claims?

Many people are in favor of countries trading with each other on an equal playing field. It is possible that the World Trade Organization was created to make sure that this equality never exists. With such influence there is no doubt in my mind that this possibly nefarious institution will continue on with its agenda whether people like it or not.

Is the World Trade Organization really beneficial?

Afghanistan Casualties – 911 Inside Job Pretext For an Invasion?

Afghan Massacre

Afghan Massacre: the convoy of death tells of a horrific forced journey under taken by thousands of prisoners who surrendered to America’s Afghanistan allies after a siege of Konduz. Bundled into containers, lucky ones were shot within minutes. Rest suffered an appalling road trip lasting up to four days, clawing at some skin of their fellow prisoners as they licked perspiration and even drank blood from open wounds.

Up to three thousand now lie buried in a mass grave, but this was NOT a simple matter of Afghans killing each other.

The Jewish Anarchists

The Free Voice of Labor: The Jewish Anarchists traces a history of a Yiddish anarchist newspaper publishing its final issue. This story is mostly told by this newspaper’s now elderly, but decidedly unbowed staff. This is a story of one of a largest radical movements among Jewish immigrant workers in both nineteenth and twentieth centuries and conditions that led them to band together.

These elderly anarchists reflect on their lives spent fighting for a less centralized government, workers’ rights and above all, justice for all. In doing so, strong social bonds were formed while authorities, including managers, police and the United States government military put psychological and physical pressure on them. Is the United States American military committing genocide?

This question has a plausible yes when you consider some events of September eleventh in downtown Manhattan, New York were an inside job. Perhaps this false flag of perhaps epic proportions was used as a pretext to invade Afghanistan. Not just Afganistand, but Iraq and possible future areas of the planet, in a false “war on terror”.

WikiLeaks – United States Military Largest Terrorist Organization?

Iraq The Women’s Story

An invasion of Iraq heralded promises of freedom from tyranny and equal rights for women of Iraq. But three years on, a reality of everyday life for women inside Iraq is a different story. To make this film, two Iraqi women risk their lives to spend three months travelling all over a country with a camera to record some lives and experiences of women they meet.

WikiLeaks Collateral Murder

Fifth April two thousand ten, WikiLeaks has released a classified United States government military video depicting an indiscriminate slaying of over a dozen people in an Iraqi suburb of New Baghdad, including two Reuters news staff. Reuters has been trying to obtain this video through a Freedom of Information Act, without success since a time of an attack. This video, shot from an Apache helicopter gun sight, clearly shows an not provoked slaying of a wounded Reuters employee and his rescuers.

Two young children involved in a rescue were also seriously wounded.

WikiLeaks US Soldier

United States soldier Ethan McCord speaking about a civilian massacre documented in WikiLeaks’s April two thousand ten video disclosure of Apache helicopter footage of a new Baghdad attack that took place in two thousand seven, allegedly released by Private First Class Bradley Manning. McCord’s story was delivered to attendees of a United National Peace Conference, which took place in Albany New York a weekend of July twenty third through twenty fifth, two thousand ten. Produced by a United National Peace Conference Media Project, powered by Sanctuary for Independent Media and Hudson Mohawk Independent Media Center.

Is the United States government military the world’s largest terrorist organization?

Palestine – Is Israel’s Military Real Terrorists in Palestine?

Gaza

Beginning just after the Oslo Accords were signed in September nineteen ninety three, a family in a largest refugee camp in the Gaza Strip is followed over a course of six years. Existing in poverty but sustained by love, this family lives at mercy of a turbulent political situation. While a peace accord raised hopes of liberation from long years of occupation and a creation of an independent Palestinian state, reality shatters these dreams, and people of Gaza are torn between optimism and despair.

Meanwhile, this film brings into sharp focus a reality of Israel’s “legalized occupation” in a context of shattered peace, and corruption of a Palestinian National Authority that has lost its vision of “true liberation” for Palestinian people.

Encroachment

The homes of Palestinian residents in East Jerusalem are demolished one after another. A family whose newly built home was bulldozed by city authorities and is now forced to live in a tent is followed over a course of four years. Interviews with city officials and concerned citizens illuminate a government’s strategy for an “Israelification” of Jerusalem.

Shalom, Salaam

A university student in the Gaza Strip engages in a suicide attack. What drove him to this act was pent up anger and despair of Palestinian people toward daily attacks, house demolitions, and killings by the Israeli army. Meanwhile, a female Israeli border police officer is severely burned in a suicide attack on a bus.

This film follows her lengthy recuperation in a hospital, supported by her family, and depicts some victims’ festering distrust and anger toward Palestinians. Elsewhere, parents of a fifteen year old girl killed in a suicide attack work as peace activists, shouldering their daughter’s strong desire for peace. They participate in a dialogue between bereaved Israeli and Palestinian families, but a gulf between those two groups’ visions of “peace” proves difficult to bridge.

Breaking the Silence

In spring of two thousand two, the Israeli army surrounded and attacked a Balata refugee camp. A camera follows residents living in a state of terror and records their lives and feelings. A desperate situation in Jenin refugee camp after death and destruction of Israel’s violent attack is also depicted, conveying a reality of “occupation.”

Meanwhile, former Israeli officers and soldiers in a group called Breaking the Silence testify to a numbing of their sense of morality and ethics during service in occupied territories, and dread they feel over a loss of their humanity. They speak out from concern that some moral foundations of Israeli society and state are at risk. Some soldiers’ testimony and ambivalence of their families reveal some deep shadows that an occupation has cast on Israeli society.

Is Israel’s military real terrorists in Palestine?

Battle of Fallujah – Are United States Military Real Terrorists?

Falluja April 2004 (English)

Falluja is a city that became a symbol of Iraqi resistance to a United States government military occupation in April two thousand four, when the United States military launched a major assault involving thousands of troops on a mostly Sunni city. In a one month long siege, around seven hundred thirty people were killed, and some two thousand eight hundred wounded.

Ten days after, in early May two thousand four, Toshikuni Doi, a freelance journalist, visited Falluja with a camcorder to discover what had actually happened inside that besieged city. A number of that city’s residents, men and women, spoke to him. What turned that “city of mosques” into a “city of resistance”?

How did United States troops carry out their attack on this city? What was an impact on this city’s residents? What was it like there during those fights?

And what was a human cost? “Falluja, April Two Thousand Four, is a fifty five minute pure documentary film with no additional music or effects, shows what a military operation means to a city and its people. A battle of Fallujah, Iraq was perhaps completely white washed in America’s propaganda media.

Was this attack justified or was it really more succinctly terrorism perpetrated by the United States government military against innocent people? Another possible misconception is that some how any Iraqi’s that opposed this invasion were automatically labeled insurgents. Were they really insurgents or really freedom fighters protecting themselves from the real terrorists in this scenario?

A battle of Fallujah is just one possible terrorist act perpetrated by the United States government military among many. Do you think it is possible that the United States government military are real terrorists worldwide?

Falluja – Were Iraqi Insurgents Actually Freedom Fighters?

Falluja April Two Thousand Four (Arabic)

Falluja a city that became a symbol of Iraqi resistance to a United States occupation in April of two thousand four, when the United States launched a major assault involving thousands of troops on a mostly Sunni city. In a one month long siege, around seven hundred and thirty people were killed, and some two thousand eight hundred wounded. Ten days after, in early May two thousand four, Toshikuni Doi, a freelance journalist, visited Falluja with a camcorder to discover what had actually happened inside that besieged city.

A number of some of that city’s residents, men and women, spoke to him. What turned that “city of mosques” into a “city of resistance”? How did United States troops carry out their attack on this city?

What was an impact on this city’s residents? What was it like there during those fights? And what was a human cost?

Falluja April Two Thousand Four, is a fifty five minute pure documentary film with no additional music or effects, shows what a military operation means to a city and its people. Ever since the United States government military invaded Falluja, those locals that opposed those troops have been labeled insurgents. Is this an accurate label or is it more propaganda by the United States military.

Perhaps is it really more accurate to label Iraqi’s opposed to the United States military invasion as freedom fighters instead? You can’t help but wonder, if after forcefully invading Fallujah, Iraq, that the United States propaganda machine would label their victims in a wrong manner purposefully.

Depleted Uranium – Did United States Military Use This on Iraq?

Lifting the Hood

November two thousand five as a “hooded man” in some infamous Abu Ghraib pictures, Haj Ali became an icon of everything that was wrong with a United States occupation. He tells his story and we hear from other prisoners. “They stretched my hands in this position and attached the wires to them”, states Haj Ali.

“It felt like my eyes were popping out. I couldn’t stand it”. He spent three months being physically and psychologically tortured at Abu Ghraib.

Interrogators wanted him to use his knowledge as a community leader to inform on other people. “They said ‘give us the name of anyone you hate and we’ll see it as co-operation and help you'”. In a nearby cell, army general Abu Maan was also being interrogated.

“They stripped me and took photos of me in degrading positions”, he recalls. Both men are angry that only junior officers have been disciplined for some abuse that went on at Abu Ghraib. Ilham al-Jumaili’s husband Munadel was tortured to death there.

It’s his corpse that Sabrina Harman was photographed gloating over. “We didn’t expect America to take Munadel and never return him”, she laments. Victims of Abu Ghraib remain haunted by their experiences.

In some words of Haj Ali “Only one thing has changed. The cameras have now disappeared the abuse still continues”.

Depleted Uranium

June nineteen ninety nine some effects of fallout from depleted uranium shells used in a first Gulf War is a matter of controversy. What is a reality of depleted uranium pollution in Iraq? In some hospitals of Basra, doctors are speaking of a crime against humanity.

Flicking through his casebook from last four years, Doctor Abdul Karin shows pictures of babies born without skin, with over sized heads and with noses where a mouth should be. Doctors here firmly point a finger of blame at Allies’ use of depleted uranium shells during a Gulf War. Over a million rounds of this weapon were fired during a short and decisive round of bombing.

Favored for its armor piercing qualities, a depleted uranium bomb penetrates its target with intense radioactive heat, incinerating its victims. “It’s …a flash, bang sort of toaster,” describes nuclear consultant John Range. Once detonated, depleted uranium particles remain radioactive for four thousand million years.

Irradiated particles travel on some wind polluting water, soil and entering a food chain.

Sadr City

October two thousand seven a rare look at life inside Iraq’s most notorious slum. Sadr City, Baghdad, has become a breeding ground for radicalism. Many of its three million citizens depend on Muqtada al-Sadr for support.

“We are a republic of widows and orphans”, one school teacher explains. “The mosques don’t have enough coffins to hold funerals”. Some inhabitants of Sadr City want only one thing for a future: stability.

For them, United States troops are associated with death. Since a beginning of a surge, United States troops have raided Sadr City almost every night.
