Blogroll Me! How This Old Brit Sees It ...: Lebanon Latest : Israel, America, Europe, Britain and the UN -- Shame, Shame, Shame

20 July 2006

Lebanon Latest : Israel, America, Europe, Britain and the UN -- Shame, Shame, Shame


*

Above is a bit of the city of Beirut in Lebanon. People lived there.

Real, flesh, blood & bone people just like you and me. And like our kids and our grandkids and sundry kith & kin.

Some of them are still alive. But some of them wish they weren't.


Gert, one of our fellow British blogger friends, forwarded the following link via our comment's section.

He asked that we help spread the terrible truth about what Israel is doing to Lebanon - and it's people.

You'll soon see why we could not wait to help, when and if you have the nerve [and stomach], to see for yourself the suffering of some -- and the shame of so many, many more.

Whether you personally do or don't dare to look -- please distribute this as quickly and as widely as possible.

But be warned -- war is hell -- and bloodbaths aren't called bloodbaths without good reason.

And be advised -- 'all' Americans are behind Israel - according to George Bush and Hillary Clinton, and a veritable whole brothel-full of bloodthirsty U.S. whore-politicians.

Along with Tony Blair and big bunch of his own bloody-handed British MP brothers & sisters.

Here's the "X-rated" link -- before you click -- think.

Shame on them.

And shame on us.

Maybe the nutcase's end times and Armagedon isn't such a bad idea.

A. It gets shut of them.
B. We get to be well out of it.
C. The suffering stops - period.

Has the site been blocked? The link's no longer working Richard. I tried Gert's too. His link's not either. But yours and his both were at first.

Overload or 'offed'? Any ideas?

kiwi,
I came back to say and ask the same things.

Those pictures were fron hell. A butchers shop in hell I think.
Pictures like that have stopped wars before - no wonder they seem to have been 'censored' in some way.

Maybe someone has stored them somewhere? Richard? Gert?

They come and go kiwi - it's a more a question of massive server traffic than malice I think.

kiwi & bootlian,

Thank you both. Well, it looks like that Lebanese site picture site was tooooo good/bad to last long online.

I've been checking & rechecking here and at Gerts. Both our urls were correct and both were working fine -- but not for long, it seems.

Well, your guesses are as good as mine -- though I don't think guesses come into this little equation. More a matter of certainties, I think.

Maybe some hard-slog-searching will come up with something - though it's getting late here, and it's been a long [hot], hard day.

We'll have to wait and see.

x-post with erdlajon,

I certainly hope they've not gone for good, and that they ARE indeed being seen by MASSIVE numbers.

It's working ok here, I was just reading on cryptome.org that yesterday it had some difficulties which they described as it getting 'banned' but this is just due to traffic I think, it's become very popular and the server is overloaded.

It seems to be working ok here as I say.

Richard:

Definitely server overload. This *.be server is a small server. It'll work but only intermittently, depending on traffic, which is probably rising to a torrent right now.

Thanks for helping to get this out.

I think it is server overload...I got in fine 2 hours ago but not now...thanks for posting the links...
hopefully the word will spread about this...and the Truth and the Pictures

Raw Story and Crooks and Liars are linking up now...hence the overload...

It's the overload. They've moved to a bigger server. I saw all the photos ok.

When I looked at their petition site, I saw that 500 new signatures had been added in less than 20 minutes, so that page is getting hit hard too. It is still on the smaller server.

One Iraniam (extremist)politican may have 'said' Israel should be wiped of the map ~ and caused an outcry ~ by Israel aren't simply 'saying' something ~ they ARE wiping Lebanon off the map.

And the world watches ~ for a few minutes at a time - then goes about it's business. Shame on us all, is right Old Brit. Special shame on the US as they're primarily to blame, thought they hide behind Israel. Yes, they do. They (or at least their vote hungry pols, of all stripes) are AFRAID of upsetting the Jewish lobby.

Rex, I don't think it's a matter of the US not wishing to upset the Jewish lobbby. BushCo is hoping that Israel's over the top tactics will precipitate ever more reprisals from "open source" fighters so the US can escalate the "war on terror". Furthermore, they want to try and catch the Iranian gov't in the act of supplying Hezbollah so that the US can use that as a pretense for declaring full-scale war on Iran. In other words, this isn't cowardly neglect, it's not deference to AIPAC, it's a fricking sting operation.

Disgusting.

PS - I followed Gert's link and the images are of course powerful and disturbing. I just really wish the site designer had chosen a different font for the main title. I see where they were going with the creepy, horror-movie typeface, but I think it kind of cheapens the message.

Blogger Richard said...

Thanks - for everything - everyone.

I've been visiting several well know sites, and find that in spite of everything there are those [mainly from the US] who are actually applauding what's going on.

Though it's obvious from their comments and parroted crap from the propaganderised US msm news sources, that they don't have a bloody clue what's really happening or why.

The word despair keeps spring to mind.

Dear Richard,

I'm a radio producer for a national public radio show in the US, Open Source, hosted by Chris Lydon, www.radioopensource.org. I'd like to record a phone interview with you for an upcoming show-- we try to include bloggers on our show as much as possible. Could you please email me and I'll explain further. chelsea@radioopensource.org.

Many thanks, Chelsea

So many people were having so much trouble, I made another gallery with other photos gathered from the web. This is much too important to be struggling with bandwidth.

Of course on the blog I gave full credit to you and Gert.

Thanks so much for bringing this to my attention.

Good luck with your interview!

James Wolcott's putting out some fantactic pieces about all this. He won't be silenced either. Kudos to him -- and you -- and Gert - and Tom - everyone else here and elsewhere that's behind you in you struggle to get the truth out to the wider world.

Hey Richard, they're gonna make you a star!
I hope This Old Brit won't move to Hollywod and become a conservative, and stop consorting with the likes of we mere plebs.

Hehehe. Seriously, Richard. You MUST let us know when and how we can get to hear you if this comes off -- I I do mean MUST!
