Yeah saw that earlier in the week and gave it a pass posting it here so it didn't seem like I was picking on them or something lol. Apartheid is going to formally be legislated. Great step forward...

Ever get sick of hearing "but why can't the Palestinians just leave them alone?"?

https://www.aljazeera.com/news/middleea ... 07536.html

That's why. Well, part of the reason. They have nothing. They still live in a warzone. Building materials can't come in. Aid is blocked at land and sea. There are over 2 million people in a place the size of Montreal who have nothing.

Australian muckraker journalist John Pilger claims that no government has given him as much trouble as Israel's - and that competition includes the Burmese, Indonesian and Thai military juntas.

Gaza's a 21st century ghetto, in the old-school sense, not the gangsta sense.

I think it's worse. Ghettos still received supplies and food rations from the Germans.

The headline reads Netanyahu will be known as the first prime minister of Israeli apartheid.

The headline should read Netanyahu will be known as the first prime minister of official Israeli apartheid.

And from ABC News today... http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-08-02/n ... k/10060378

Quote:
We've heard a lot lately about white South African farmers being killed in farm murders. But another group of African farmers are being killed in far greater numbers and we've barely heard a whimper.

What would you think if you heard that there was a group of people, all belonging to one religion, who were being savagely attacked by another group so that they were forced out of their homes?

If whole villages were being destroyed, churches burnt to the ground and hundreds of people including women and children murdered? If the region's government was doing little to intervene?

That's the situation in the north of Nigeria. Nomadic Islamic herdsmen from the Fulani ethnic group are attacking Christian farmers in a conflict that's even more deadly than the Boko Haram insurgency that's ravaged the country for years.

You'd expect it to be big news, wouldn't you?

But it's far from the headlines of Western media


Yet we still have government members calling for fast tracking of white South Africans over all other refugees, while demonising Sudanese in Melbourne and proclaiming the city and state of Victoria are under siege from African gangs when crime is down and the fact remains the vast number of crimes in the city and state are committed by born and bred Aussies. After all, who knows crime better than a fucking penal colony.

Why would I do that?

Are you upset that I pointed out the hypocrisy of politicians being upset about dead farmers in one country while ignoring the same plight another country simply because of skin colour?

There's no hypocrisy. Plenty of people have been trying to help the Christians of Africa and the Mid-East from getting wiped out by Muslims. But usually when we bring it up, it's met with a chorus of slander and accusations of Islamophobia from the left.

Right, so it's not racists to specify that white South African farmers should be saved and ignore the black farmers?

Gotcha. :thumb:

I never made any claims one way or another about if this is racist. Please strop putting words in my mouth.

That said, I can see why the Australian government would want to help the Afrikaaners specifically. They don't have the rest of Africa to support them the way blacks do.

I've heard about the Fulani / Christian thing before, and there's a lot more complexity to it than that.

How many have you heard about the Seleka / anti-Balaka war which was going on in the Central Africa Republic? Never really ended. The temperature of conflict there has recently been rising again, and some of that is farmers versus non-farmers, or nomads versus others.


Quote:
The Central African Republic could be on the brink of a bloodbath:

Many say religion isn't really driving the violence — that armed groups are looking to gain power and to profit off resources such as diamonds and gold. But that doesn't mean fighters aren't exploiting ethnic and religious differences.


https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/africa/the-central-african-republic-could-be-on-the-brink-of-a-bloodbath/2017/10/09/b26e59d0-a7bf-11e7-9a98-07140d2eed02_story.html?utm_term=.006c26e13267


And of course, the great powers have their hand in there too.


Quote:
Central African Republic: Russian journalists die in ambush

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-45025601

These journalists got killed either because they were mistaken for Russian mercs, or were investigating the issue of Russian mercs and that crossed a line for someone.

The US has taken note of this Russian presence there, and as usual, is trying to sound the alarm.

So. someone tried to blow up Maduro with a drone bomb:

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-45077057

Maduro blames right wing Venezuelan conspirators, Colombia, and Washington.

They claim he's faking it, that it was some innocent gas explosion.

However, this journalistic report seems to show the actual drone that blew up:

https://www.lapatilla.com/2018/08/05/en-video-asi-reseno-telemundo-el-atentado-con-drones-a-maduro/

Not exactly a military killing machine, but I guess even amateurs can get into the drone-attack game these days.

Australia's refugees (mostly women & children) stuck on Nauru, many for 5 years now, have reached out to Canada and Trudeau for help, recognizing neither the Australian government or Labor opposition will do anything to help them.

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/manitoba/ ... -1.4773362

Quote:
The group representing 560 people, including more than 140 children, sent letters July 16 to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen, asking for help. They include a petition with 185 signatures.


Quote:
"UNHCR is appalled by the conditions in Nauru and continues to urge Australia to take responsibility to protect these refugees in dignity," said Jean-Nicolas Beuze, UNHCR Representative in Canada, in an email.


This comes just a week after the Queensland coroner found Hamid Khazaei's death from a mere leg infection was completely preventable and a course of antibiotics would have saved his life. The Australian government refuses medical care to every refugee on Nauru & Manus Island, fighting each case to the High Court every time, and losing... every time. Last week it was an infant they denied care to. The cruelty is endless.

The West are getting their dollars worth as Saudi's kill more civilians in Yemen. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-08-10/y ... s/10104136

Quote:
The United States and other Western powers provide arms and intelligence to the alliance, and human rights groups have criticised them over coalition air strikes that have killed hundreds of civilians at hospitals, schools and markets.

The Houthis have launched a series of missile strikes on Saudi Arabia, including Riyadh, over the past year.

The Yemen war has killed more than 10,000 people, displaced more than 2 million and driven the country to the verge of famine, according to the United Nations.

Given the spanking he got for the Somalians from the US, taking these guys is almost politically suicidal at this point. I doubt he'll even comment on it publicly.

Tragic. It's worse than Syria and we're not even talking about it because it's more convenient to keep it on the down low.

Yeah, the western nations - US and UK in particular - have been blindly letting them smash Yemen to bits, in what amounts to a sectarian genocide. There was a reason why the Houthis rebelled in the first place, and that has been ignored too; the Houthis are being punished for what was (at one point) a victory over a president who was openly letting Al Qaida murder them. The Saudis then invaded to change the result, but without their air power and a huge mass of (mostly African) mercenary soldiers, they'd be losing that war.

China making news, with claims of internment camps holding a million Uighurs people across the country.

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-08-11/c ... s/10109290
https://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/world/ ... 4zwwd.html

Quote:
"We are deeply concerned at the many numerous and credible reports that we have received that in the name of combating religious extremism and maintaining social stability (China) has changed the Uighur autonomous region into something that resembles a massive internship camp that is shrouded in secrecy, a sort of 'no rights zone'," she told the start of a two-day regular review of China's record, including Hong Kong and Macao.

China has said that Xinjiang faces a serious threat from Islamist militants and separatists who plot attacks and stir up tensions between the mostly Muslim Uighur minority who call the region home and the ethnic Han Chinese majority.
