Syria

Bomb the way to Peace in Syria?

DSCN0476We can prevent the US from launching military strikes on Syria, if we mobilize the majority who oppose a military action to tell Congress that only a diplomatic initiative will end the crisis, not bombing.1 The US can not bomb the way to peace in Syria!

Last week, your efforts succeeded in compelling the Obama administration to allow the Congress to play its constitutional role in the decision to launch military strikes on Syria. Congratulations to us all!

Now our work continues to prevent a military strike on Syria. Contact Congress now.

Tell your Congressional representatives:

There are more than 2 options for how our government should respond to the horrific events in Syria. The third and most effective option is to promote a political solution, a diplomatic initiative that will lead to peace, not more chaos, and death.

1. Vote to oppose authorizing military force in Syria The Authorization of Use of Military Force (AUMF) is a wide-open, blank check for war.

2. The only solution to the crisis is a diplomatic solution starting with a ceasefire, convening a conference of all the countries in the region, parties on the ground and the United Nations and continued humanitarian support for those fleeing the civil war.

3. Ask what your representatives’ position is now. Let Peace Action know what they say. We are tracking positions because we know that representatives may shift positions in the next week. The more specific the information, the more effective we will be in mobilizing public pressure along as we work with our allies to win this vote in Congress.

Contact Congress now.

  1. No body wants bloodshed, no body wants killing, no body wants anti humanity acts. There is no any justification and reason for unwanted disastrous war. Don’t be bloodthirsty for political/economical game.

  2. Pressure Mounts on Security Council to Rein in Israel:

    UNITED NATIONS, Calls are growing for a swift international response to the situation in the Middle East, as Israel continues to build new settlements in Palestinian territories with increased military actions against civilians.

    However, there is no sign that the 15-member Security Council intends to take any immediate measures to rejuvenate the stalled peace process led by the U.N., the United States, the European Union and Russia.

    Last week, the Palestinian envoy Riyad Mansour sent a letter to U.S. ambassador Susan Rice, who was then president of the Security Council, in which he described the current situation in Palestine as “grave” and said it required “urgent attention and serious action” by the international community, including the Security Council.

    The letter, which was also sent to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and the president of the General Assembly, mentioned in detail the Israeli settlement activities in the Occupied Palestinian Territories. Mansour said the situation in and around Occupied East Jerusalem was “most severe”.

    Mansour said this was being done “for the direct purpose of altering the demographic composition, character and legal status of its Palestinian inhabitants through forced evictions, home demolitions, revocation of residency rights, and other measures in flagrant violations of international and the past Security Council resolutions.”

    The Palestinians have also been circulating a draft resolution that would declare Israel’s settlement building in East Jerusalem to be illegal. Every one knows the Middle East problems have been manifested by Israel, and the USA support of their atrocities.

    On Wednesday, as Israeli troops killed two more Palestinians near the Gaza border, Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat reiterated his position that the parties involved in the peace process – the Quartet comprising the U.N., U.S., Russia and the European Union – must take firm decisions.

    For their part, the Israelis are insisting that instead of involving the international community for a negotiated peace, they would rather hold direct talks, a condition that is highly unlikely to be accepted by the Palestinian leadership which is more focused on gaining wider international support for the legitimacy of their struggle.

    The Palestinians enjoy overwhelming diplomatic support in the 192-member U.N. General Assembly. The scene in the Security Council chamber is somewhat different, where over the years, the U.S. has repeatedly blocked resolutions that were either in support of the Palestinians or against Israel.

    Sources told IPS that last week the chief Palestinian diplomat had met Ambassador Rice, but failed to get a clear response for a possible Security Council resolution to halt Israeli settlements. “It’s very clear that at the moment the U.S. is not ready for any Council resolution on a settlement freeze,” said a diplomat who did not want to be named.

    However, it may not be so easy for the U.S. to continue its unconditional support for Israel. Pressure for change in the U.S. policy on Israel appears to be growing, despite the fact that the so-called Israel lobby is still far more powerful in the U.S. than any other interest group.

    Last month, for example, Human Rights Watch called for Washington to stop giving aid to Israel in an amount equivalent to the costs of its spending in support of settlements, and to monitor contributions to Israel from tax-exempt U.S. organisations that violate international law.

    Aware that the U.S. is Israel’s largest weapons supplier, Amnesty International has called for an arms embargo on Israel. Considering the wider support for the Palestinians on the international level, the noted U.S. intellectual and political analyst Noam Chomsky thinks that a shift in U.S. policy on Israel may not be impossible.

    But “to break the logjam,” he writes in a recent article run by the New York Times Syndicate, “it will be necessary to dismantle the reigning illusion that the U.S. is an ‘honest broker’ desperately seeking to reconcile recalcitrant adversaries, and to recognize that serious negotiations would be between the U.S.-Israel and the rest of the world.”

    In his view, “If U.S. power centers can be compelled by popular opinion to abandon decades-old rejectionism, many prospects that seem remote might become suddenly possible.”

    At the U.N., when IPS asked about the secretary-general’s response to the letter, spokesman Martin Nesirky said: “The SG pays close attention to what is happening in the Middle East. This particular topic was taken to the Security Council. Now it’s up to the Council [to take action].”

    THE AMERICAN PEOPLE NEED TO DEMAND, AND WILL DEMAND DRASTIC CHANGE IN USA POLICY. NO MORE FREE RIDE FOR ISRAEL.

    NO MORE FILIBUSTERING / NO MORE PORK. NO MORE SPECIAL INTEREST DOMESTIC OR FOREIGN .

    Nazi Propaganda was Based on What Zionists Said

    Zionism and Antisemitism

    We implore and beseech our Jewish brethren to realize that the Zionists are not the saviors of the Jewish People and guarantors of their safety, but rather the instigators and original cause of Jewish suffering in the Holy Land and worldwide. The idea that Zionism and the State of “Israel” is the protector of Jews is probably the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the Jewish People. Indeed, where else since 1945 have Jews been in such physical danger as in the Zionist state?!

    Jews are enjoined by their religious laws to be loyal to the country of which they are citizens. Ever since the destruction of the holy Temple in Jerusalem and the exile of the Jewish People some two thousand years ago, we have been enjoined to be scrupulously loyal to the countries we reside in. One of the great biblical prophets, Jeremiah, in chapter 29 of his book proclaimed G-d’s message to all the exiled; verse seven reads, “Seek out the welfare of the city to which I have exiled you and pray for it to the Almighty, for through its welfare will you have welfare.” This has been a cornerstone of Jewish morality throughout our history to this very day.

    Torah-true Jews wish to live in peace and harmony with their neighbors in every country among the community of nations, including in historic Palestine. They deplore acts and policies of violence carried out by those who, misusing the name of Israel our forefather, have substituted the ideal of chauvinist nationalism for the eternal values of the Torah, the eternal divinely bestowed inheritance of the Jewish people.

    It has been the age-old intention of Zionism to intentionally stir up anti-Semitism anywhere possible, and even more commonly, to take advantage of any Jewish suffering anywhere in order to enhance its cause Indeed, hatred of Jews and Jewish suffering is the oxygen of the Zionist movement, and from the very beginning has been to deliberately incite hatred of the Jew and then, in feigned horror, use it to justify the existence of the Zionist state – this is, of course, Machiavellianism raised to the highest degree. Thus, the Zionists thrive on hatred and suffering of Jews, and seek to benefit thereby through keeping Jews in perpetual fear, causing them to ignore the true nature of Zionism, and instead to consider the Zionist state is their salvation.

    ANTI-SEMITISM BY POLITICAL ZIONISM

    PLEASE FORWARD

    WHO IS NOW CONTROLLING “OUR” UNIVERSITIES?

  4. How can anyone trust Obama at his word on Syria. He committed in June, to provide weapons to Free Syrian Army (FSA) rebel group, yet never provided them the weapons. This issue stinks, vote it down. It smell of a ‘fix is in”.

  5. ZERO: Ethics & Integrity.

    Apr 19, 2013 – Compared with last year, the joint wealth of the 165 Zionist billionaires has grown substantially.

    The Zionist Billionaires Who Control Political Discourse

    Obama has carried out the orders of Rothschild and his sub-agent Zionist billionaire George Soros to the letter. There has been a coup d’état by Zionist traitors. Obama is held captive, not protected . Zionist now control both political parties, both the Senate & house,
    Wall Street, Hollywood, The media, our food chain, TV, the internet, YOUR GUNS, JOBS, and religious leaders.

    America is in big trouble, and there’s hell to pay. That’s my conclusion, based on careful analysis and evaluation of the clear and present danger which confronts us. Swindlers are in charge of this country, and not ordinary swindlers either. These greedy crooks are devil-men, murderous in nature, determined to pull the plug on our freedoms and liberties.

    Sadly, many years of steady media indoctrination, moral decay, and political compromises by the people have made it possible for America to reach this great crisis point. Taken over completely by Zionism, The Russian Zionist Mafia and Israel in charge.

    Zionist: False Prophets and Profiteers. Republican: CORRUPTION.

    ZERO: Ethics & Integrity.

    Republican Party Leaders, Mitch McConnell (Senate Mitch McConnell most corrupt Senator in Washington) and John Boehner
    (John Boehner ” Cry baby Boner” is caught red-handed in an amazing act of corruption). Together with Eric Cantor, typical corrupt republican politician, have taken the Party down to the bottom of the sewer “the infrastructure of the party NOW”.

    It is amazing to most American,s that the conservative right
    supports such, along with the Evangelical religious leaders,
    and the Tea Party leaders also supporting the same.
    Supporting the Israeli, AIPAC, corrupt agenda as well.
    There is no ethics or real ethics committee in Washington
    to enforce any rules & regulations.

    The research is done my friends: Google
    Mitch McConnell & corruption.
    John Boehner & Corruption.
    Eric Cantor & Corruption.
    Paul Ryan & Corruption.
    Carl Rove The master mind of corruption, partner,
    Dick Cheney and The Halliburton Loophole .
    Republican Party & Corruption.
    The Tax fraud of Tax Exemption, and cover-up, breaking down
    the IRS to change makers.

    Also Google AIPAC and corruption & control of our government.

    Research also done: Done so by several professors, authors, and
    Journalist. 127 Journalist assassinated in Iraq, dying along with
    our sons & daughters fighting a WAR on false information from Israel, & Mossad.
    An illegal war, and several war crimes committed
    with no prosecution of any one.

    BUT any one giving us the TRUTH, is a terrorist, a whistle-blower.
    Come on Americans wake to Hell up. THIS IS YOUR GOVERNMENT,
    Take it back, before our kids are forced to learn Hebrew.

    Zionist: False Prophets and Profiteers influencing the Republicans and religious leaders by buying their complete support and dictating any future policy, foreign or domestic .
    The Media is the Enemy

    President Bush may have committed a lot of crimes, but the most important criminals are Edgar Bronfman, Sumner Redstone, Samuel Newhouse, and other people who control Hollywood, television, school textbooks, and other sources of information.

    Love of Money the Root of All Evil

    The list of swindlers surrounding Obama must be made known if we are to survive this deadly assault. Here I publish their names, and note: They are all Zionist Jews. They are, every one of them, sociopathic criminals who have been given the master keys to our national treasury. And they are busy non-stop emptying the vault. Truly, the biblical admonition, “The love of money is the root of all evil” is proven to be so, in spades.

    Any question in people’s minds that this grand conspiracy to murder America is anything but Jewish surely is answered simply by observing the names of the greedy criminals. There are no Smiths, Johnsons, Rileys, Jones, Jacksons, and Adams among them. Obama has carried out the orders of Rothschild and his sub-agent Zionist billionaire George Soros to the letter. There has been a coup d’état by Zionist traitors. Observe the top money men on the swindlers list in Obama’s household of deceit:

    Secretary of Treasury

    Tim Geithner (Jew)

    Chairman, Federal Reserve

    Ben Bernanke (Jew)

    Office of Management & Budget

    Peter Orszag (Jew)

    Chief Financial Advisor

    Larry Summers (Jew)

    Hold on, there’s more. At Obama’s side, guiding his every move in the Oval Office, are two more slimy Jewish agents of financial and political intrigue: Obama’s White House Chief of Staff, Rahm “The Cruel” Emanuel (Jew), and Chief Political Advisor David Axelrod (Jew). Over-seeing Obama’s quest to socialize our entire medical system and set up “death panels” to mete out euthanasia to the old and “unfit” is none other than Rahm Emanuel’s M.D. brother—Ezekiel Emanuel (Jew). The new IRS commissioner is Doug Shulman, also—of course—a Jew.

    Israel’s & AIPAC’s Vicious Band of Zionist Criminals Are Stealing America Blind and Now Threaten Our Very Lives.

    OH! how well I know. What can we or any one else do about it. To begin with International organizations that have
    warned us for the last sixty years.

  6. Watch the exchange between Alan Grayson and Chuck Hagel where Grayson asks about releasing documents with redactions, Hagel replies “it’s classified,,, I don’t know what you’re talking about… I’ll have to go back and look at it…” He never speaks to Grayson’s question in a manner which suggests: “Yes Congressman Grayson I will see if that is possible. I understand your concern fully.” These classified documents must be shared with humanity directly through publication or, as William Cohen suggested on BBC, brought to the United Nations Security Council. The world must see the evidence otherwise it is “trust me”, leading to doubt among people in not only America, but around the world.

  7. SYRIA OR ANOTHER ISRAELI SMOKE SCREEN.

    We the AMERICAN people have gotten used to the after-math of atrocities, seeing pictures, videos, and the alike, how ever , we also are sick and tired of the false flag operation and the atrocities world wide from Israel. The assassinations, the lack of release of information regarding JFK, MLK, and RFK. attack on the US Liberty, 911 and false information, attacks on all their neighbors. The stealing of Jewish Identity, AIPAC and involvement in our election process, banking process, education process, control of our food chain, government. all federal regulation agencies starting with HOME LAND SECURITY.

    ENOUGH, IS ENOUGH. TRUST for Washington is gone for-ever. TRUST in the Christian religious order is gone for ever. WHERE is the true evidence that the chemical attack came from SYRIA instead of another ISRAELI ATTACK.

    How many no-bid contracts this time?? Black-Water SE, Halliburton, and any other corporation connected enough with the
    people who are in charge of WAR ,WAR, AND MORE WAR??

  8. Hi there, all the time i used to check weblog posts here in the early hours in
    the break of day, for the reason that i love to find out more and more.
