It is utterly cruel to keep him in captivity so that he cannot leave to go anywhere!

Viva Palestina reaches its goal to Gaza in a convoy bringing aids like wheelchairs that would not be available to the needy there after the onslaught of Israel on Gaza. It is particularly of importance to note what he said about Tony Blair, a non-representative of Britain but the people are, this group after their perilous journeyare. He ends with the slogan, ‘We are all Palesatinians…’

Another very significant fact remains that BBC said not a word about this great achievement as many believe it is ZBC!

This is based on the foresight of HH Aga Khan lV’s dream of bringing the faith of Islam to the world at large and make it accessible to anyone who visits Toronto in Canada.

AKM Toronto 23

The low-slung, white-granite Aga Khan Museum in north-east Toronto shimmers through the autumn leaves. On first view the newly opened 17-acre site seems like an image out of a desert dream. It has a garden with five reflecting pools, as well as a dramatic, glass-domed prayer hall and a community centre for local Shia Ismaili Muslims. (The Aga Khan is spiritual leader and adviser to the world’s 20m Ismailis.) This 21st-century evocation of the Muslim East — an unexpected sight in a city that gets covered in snow for months each year — makes a fantastical introduction to a museum of Islamic arts.

Redevelopment of Mecca

Ahmed Mater, one of Saudi Arabia’s leading artists, showed an audience at Sotheby’s London last night, Tuesday 12 August, the rampant development in Mecca that has transformed Islam’s holiest site into a luxury destination. Even the official logo of the municipality features a bulldozer alongside Islamic iconography. The discussion, part of Sotheby’s Tuesday talks programme covering the Middle Eastern art world and organised with Ibraaz, the publishing arm of the Kamel Lazaar Foundation, focused on Mater’s experiences in Mecca.

Saudi Arabia unashamedly is influenced by its new friendship with Zionist Israel.

Dear Reader,

Things need close watch. The 46 on 2 boats SS Free Gaza and SS Liberty need our support and admiration to want to teach Israeli Govt a lesson that this world is aware of their illegal occupation of Palestine and Gaza. This mission is for Humanitarian cause, surely! Will USA, European states, including United Kingdom, allies of Israel, show their sense of  Reason and Justice? Let us take heed for the sake of the ‘democracy’ they claim to have, or is it only a myth? Lets us keep in touch with the brave ones, via the addresses they give at the end of my forwarded message:

How Israel helps eavesdrop on US citizens
Ali Abunimah, The Electronic Intifada, 3 November 2008

After the 11 September 2001 attacks, the United States government launched a massive program to spy on millions of its own citizens. Through the top secret National Security Agency (NSA), it has pursued “access to billions of private hard-line, cell, and wireless telephone conversations; text, e-mail and instant Internet messages; Web-page histories, faxes, and computer hard drives.” In his new book, The Shadow Factory: The Ultra-Secret NSA from 9/11 to the Eavesdropping on America author James Bamford casts light on this effort, including a detailed account of how spying on American citizens has been outsourced to several companies closely linked to Israel’s intelligence services.

It is well-known that the two largest American telecom companies AT&T and Verizon collaborated with the US…

Please read about a detainee in Guantanamo Bay

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2008/aug/28/usa.usforeignpolicy?gusrc=rss&feed=networkfront

The US state department yesterday warned that disclosure of secret information in the case of a British resident said to have been tortured before he was sent to Guantánamo Bay would cause “serious and lasting damage” to security relations between the countries.

Stephen Mathias, a legal adviser to the department, also claimed that the “national security of the UK” would be affected by disclosure of the details of the detention and interrogation of Binyam Mohamed, 30, who is accused of conspiring with al-Qaida.

Lawyers for the Ethiopian national have been arguing in the high court that they should have access to details of his interrogation from the time he was detained in 2002 until he was taken to Guantánamo Bay – where he is still held – in 2004. Mohamed claims that he was tortured by, among other methods, having his…

This case has enraged activists to no end that Bush and Blair’s immoral, unjust, illegal Invasion of Iraq in 2003 has remained on the pages of history

http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2008/nov/20/baha-mousa-death-inquiry-iraq

The judge presiding over the public inquiry into the death of Baha Mousa, the Iraqi hotel receptionist killed while in the custody of British troops in Basra, made clear today that he intended to question every soldier who witnessed the incident, whether or not they were directly responsible.

The inquiry under Sir William Gage, a former appeal court judge, intends to find out what a six month court martial failed to do – not only who inflicted the injuries on Mousa, but who was responsible for the ill-treatment, and who, if anyone, objected to it.

It will also establish why five banned techniques – wall standing, hooding, subjection to noise, sleep deprivation and deprivation of food and drink – were used and whether…
