You Cannot Trust The Media Coverage Of Israel/Gaza

Yesterday I posted on Little Bit Tired, Little Bit Worn an entry entitled Pallywood.

Basically it demonstrates how news from the Palestinian areas should be automatically considered suspect as it is a known fact that much of the video footage coming from the area is staged and in fact scripted.

This post is meant to further that point.

The following image was recently used by various media outlets to show the carnage of an Israeli IDF strike on a civilian market in Gaza on 1.01.2009.

lie

The fact of the matter is that this image is from 8.23.2005 and is the aftermath of a Hamas pickup truck which was carrying Qassam rockets accidentally exploded. The original 2005 image is here. A reluctant but honest critic of Israel post further and more in depth about this particular claim here.

We have also been told of the IDF having attacked a U.N. school in Gaza, I believe one yesterday and one today.

There is a reason why such an attack may have taken place, the same reasoning can be applied to attacks on Mosques, hospitals, etc…

Watch the following video and read the accompanying captions to see why such an attack would take place and why Hamas is far more responsible for the deaths of civilians in Gaza than is Israel.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Certainly not all news that comes from Gaza, the West Bank, etc is false or staged, but enough of it is that any news which comes from the area is suspect.

One has to wonder, why is it that the media outlets themselves are not able to weed out the lies from truth while persons viewing the news are?

It is actually very sad, because as the fact of the staging of tragedies from this area of the world becomes better known, the more likely it becomes that the world will ignore what is real for fear that they are again being lied to.

When the tragedies and victims are real, we may not be there to help for the Palestinians and those who would exploit their plight have cried wolf too many times.

Price Of Milk May Increase .08 cents Per Gallon Due To Dairy Cow Flatulence Tax

Okay, that may be a little overly descriptive, but is, for the most part, accurate. I say for the most part because the over all plan also covers pig flatulence and perhaps other critters as well.

While apparently the plan is no where near actually being enacted, just the fact that some dirt eater thought of it is disturbing. Though I suppose it should not be all that surprising considering that in 2006 the United Nations released a document which identified cattle as the greatest threat to the climate.

The Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking by the EPA would:

give the EPA the authority to regulate greenhouse gas for not only greenhouse gas from manmade sources like transportation and industry, but also “stationary” sources which would include livestock.

The article continues,

The New York Farm Bureau assigned a price tag to the cost of greenhouse gas regulation by the EPA in a release last month.

“The tax for dairy cows could be $175 per cow, and $87.50 per head of beef cattle. The tax on hogs would upwards of $20 per hog,” the release said. “Any operation with more than 25 dairy cows, 50 beef cattle or 200 hogs would have to obtain permits.”

Disturbingly stupid.

I should note that in all actuality the bulk of methane released by cattle comes from the front end of the animal rather than the… other end.

 

Justice For Mother Earth

An international court for the environment has been proposed  which would be the prevailing authority on all environmental legal matters.

The Telegraph

Stephen Hockman QC is proposing a body similar to the International Court of Justice in The Hague to be the supreme legal authority on issues regarding the environment.

The first role of the new body would be to enforce international agreements on cutting greenhouse gas emissions set to be agreed next year.

But the court would also fine countries or companies that fail to protect endangered species or degrade the natural environment and enforce the “right to a healthy environment“.

While “the first role of the new body would be to enforce international agreements”, the UN Climate Change Conference in Poznan, Poland got underway today to force international agreements.

I’m frankly surprised such an international court has not been proposed before; perhaps it has and I just missed it.

I don’t know if this court or any similar court will come into existence in the near future, but I am sure it is on it’s way.

Of course you know well who the worst offender of these international environmental agreements will be, America. You then also know which nation will be the most heavily fined and, or sanctioned, America.

America, you know that nation that provides the majority of U.N. funding.

America, the nation that brought the modern world to you.

 

The Enviro-Nazis are gearing up and now they will have a friend in the White House. Our refusal to jump on board with the Kyoto Agreement saved America millions of jobs and likely Trillions of dollars.

 

Barack Obama is short on ideas when it comes to global warming, but he does believe it does exist and that it is caused by man. He will not be a leader on this issue, he will be a follower of other nations. Basically, where ever the greenies train goes, Obama will be on board.

 

Think we have an economic crisis now? Wait until we get into the full swing of being ‘green’.

Holding on tight to your job right now? Better grasp it with both hands and tether yourself to it.

 

A global environmental court,  the undermining of the Posse Comitatus Act, don’t you just love the smell of fascism arriving in the morning.
