Quakers and Airbnb Boycott Israeli Occupation of Palestine


There are many areas and events that are not acceptable, the Israeli attitude to Palestinians, but also the Palestinians attitude to Israelis.

Both are wrong in some respects and right in others.

Whether it was right to create Israel is up for discussion, but to reverse this act is not right, but neither is it right for Israel to continue to fight Palestinians and for Palestinians to fight Israelis. Both have to come to accept what has been created and learn to live together for the common good for all.

The fanatics on both sides have to stop their aggressive actions, for it is the innocents on both sides that are suffering in the current climate and innocents should never be made to suffer on the whims of others.

I found this video from RT which was posted yesterday, Wednesday 21st November 2018 on YouTube. It reports that the Quakers have banned investing in companies which profit through Israel’s occupation of Palestine. The Quakers stated that

Our long history of working for a just peace in Palestine and Israel has opened our eyes to the many injustices and violations of international law arising from the military occupation of Palestine by the Israeli government.

With the occupation now in its 51st year, and with no end in sight, we believe we have a moral duty to state publicly that we will not invest in any company profiting from the occupation.

This is, apparently, the first time a British church had made such a move, and the Quakers have been criticized by Jewish groups, which claim that it is a reference to the Boycott, Divestment and Sanction movement. the Board of…

Jimmy Dore: Taliban Have Surrendered Several Times, Each Time Refused by America


The West, mainly America and then the UK with other European nations and then, most probably, Australia have been invading Afghanistan for many years and also the Middle East.

But why,in many instances it was and is being put forward to rid the country of forces that bring terrorism into play and wish to bring peace to the country.

But, is it as Trump is stated to say ‘to exploit its valuable mineral resources’ something the West has done for centuries in many other countries.

The West should not interfere with any country, where that country will not be invading or attacking the West and then great caution needs to be taken, as is the case with North Korea.

The riches of the world are not there for the taking by the West, but should be used by each respective country as they see fit.

In fact it could be argued that each country in the West, which has plundered riches from another country should now pay back to those countries for what they have lost, but then that could bankrupt much of the Western World.

Here’s another very important clip from the Jimmy Dore Show. It’s one that should be viewed by everyone interested in what the various wars we’re fighting around the world are really about. Dore and his co-host, Ron Placone, discuss a review of Anand Gopal’s book No Good Men Among the Living: America, the Taliban and the War through Afghan Eyes by Ryan Grimm in The Intercept. And its more of what the mainstream media aren’t telling us about these wars.

Dore starts the show by making the point that mainstream media never reveals the truth about the reasons behind America’s various wars in the Middle East and the Maghreb. They don’t mention the petrodollar, Libya, or the reason why Iran’s now a theocratic state under the ayatollahs. It’s because America – and Britain – over threw its democratically elected prime minister, Mossadeq.

And this is just as devastating. Gopal’s…

‘This is the ultimate slap in the face’ – Daily Record


A soldier who lost his legs in Afghanistan will no longer get treatment in England – because he’s Scottish.

Callum Brown, 28, still endures horrific pain from injuries caused by a bomb blast six years ago.

But now the former soldier is to lose the treatment and medication he has relied on.

He said yesterday: “I am sitting here without my legs because I fought for this country.

“This is the ultimate slap in the face. I am still in shock and can barely get my head around it.”

Former lance corporal Callum, from Ayr, has been under the care of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham.

The hospital, where he was treated when he was first airlifted home, has dedicated and specialised facilities for military casualties.

But on his last visit, he and wife Laura were stunned to be told he could no longer go there because he doesn’t live in England.

Callum fears the decision could even cost him his life because he will no longer have access to the specialist treatment available at the hospital.
