We, the undersigned, demand that The United Nations General Assembly immediately establish an International Criminal Tribunal for Israel (ICTI) as a ‘subsidiary organ’ under U.N.

CommonDreams allows essays which endorse LIHOP (let it happen on purpose) - which we appreciate - however, appears to close the door to a MIHOP (made it happen on purpose) essay which seeks to answer the claims against it. The essay is neither extremist nor without evidence, but it remains unpublished at CommonDreams. Now they are asking for our help with a contribution . . .

• Says Ian Thompson of the U.S. National Lawyers Guild
Last year's decision by a three-judge panel of the 11th Circuit

You know, I didn't even really think about the absurdity of all the sidewalk closures in Portland until a friend pointed it out. I mean, it was a hassle, it was inconvenient, and it was often dangerous. I didn't like it, but I just kind of accepted it. I didn't really think about the fact that NO other city I have ever been to allows businesses and construction companies to just block off sidewalks like that until my friend pointed it out. And then suddenly, I realized she was right.

Many fear Israel's terror machine encouraged by the pathological, indictable George W Bush. Might does not make right. Military logic is powerless in political conflicts. How sad that US veto power paralyzes the UN and that the UN is used to legitimate aggression!

Forest Service officials deny protection for red tree voles in the McKenzie District
On Tuesday, Israeli warplanes struck the southern Lebanese town of Ghaziyeh, killing at least 14 people. Missiles demolished civilian homes just as some 1,500 mourners were participating in a procession to bury 15 of their relatives and neighbors slain just the day before. The explosions sent the crowd running in panic, dropping shrouded corpses in the street.
Wow...the new man in black
We can and should get our placards and march around in a circle, but until the American government/Zionist/Israel nexus is broken, the Israeli generals will just laugh at us.

No democracy or religion is going to vote in rights inferior
to the supreme nazi zionist enemy. A "Jewish State" is a
State where all GODLY people are treated equally with respect
and honor. As according to Hillel. That is not the practiced
tyrannies of the zionist Israeli liar, therefore Israel is not
a Jewish State. John has spoken in our own image, while
Israel continues to victimize the innocent unjustly.
it need's to be pronounced correctly

the current bombing in israel clearly demonstrates israel's inability for any restraint. additionally, an immense environmental catastrophe is underway and it is barely mentioned in news reports. an immense oil slick is polluting the coastline caused by israel's bombing of a powerstation.
A raÃz de la comunicaciÃ³n de Fidel Castro sobre su estado de salud y la delegaciÃ³n provisional de sus cargos, altos funcionarios estadounidenses han formulado declaraciones cada vez mÃ¡s explÃcitas acerca del futuro inmediato de Cuba. El Secretario de Comercio Carlos GutiÃ©rrez opinÃ³ que "llegÃ³ el momento de una verdadera transiciÃ³n hacia una verdadera democracia" y el vocero de la Casa Blanca Tony Snow dijo que su gobierno estÃ¡ "listo y ansioso para otorgar asistencia humanitaria, econÃ³mica y de otra naturaleza al pueblo de Cuba", lo que acaba de ser reiterado por el Presidente Bush.
As a result of the communication of Fidel Castro on his state of health and the provisional delegation of his responsibilities, high ranking U.S officials have formulated more and more explicit declarations about the immediate future of Cuba. The Secretary of Commerce Carlos GutiÃ©rrez said that "this is the moment for a true transition towards a true democracy" and the spokesman of the White House Tony Snow said that his government is "ready and eager to grant humanitarian and economic assistance and of any other nature to the people of Cuba", which has been already being stated by President Bush.

Early this morning, protestors erected a daring road blockade to halt logging at the Mike's Gulch Timber Sale in the Siskiyou National Forest, site of the first ever incursion into an Inventoried Roadless Area since the passage of the federal Roadless Rule in 2001. At least one activist is suspended in a cantilever off the side of the Green Bridge above the Illinois River in a manner that prohibits traffic across the bridge without endangering the life of the person hanging from it.
This dramatic action follows years of lawsuits, rallies, public comment periods and national media attention involving tens of thousands of people speaking out against the logging of the Biscuit. Over 2 million people submitted comments to protect our nation's roadless areas before the Biscuit fire and over 20,000 citizens submitted public comments opposing the Biscuit logging when it was proposed, and almost 100 arrests have been made of people engaging in nonviolent civil disobedience protesting the massive logging project.
A powerful indictment of commercial nuclear power and why its use must end.
Lebanon is not business as usual. This is not just about Israel repressing its neighbors by expanding its boarders—this is not 1982. For that matter, nor is this Vietnam, or the countless other 'skirmishes' the U.S. has been involved in over the last century. The ante has been raised.
Starting with Afghanistan, the current war in Lebanon can be counted as the third aggressively-waged war led by the United States— since Israel can not act unilaterally over such a large issue, and American diplomacy has shown the world who is actually pulling the strings.
Rarely does the great shadow catch and release. Like the shark that never stops swimming, hunting, killing, is how she delivers souls, to and fro, across the worlds.
Recently it was reported that two Oakland cops infiltrated an antiwar action on May 12, 2003. This should come as no surprise, as it's been going on for a long time now. For decades. Back in the Vietnam era I was in an antiwar veterans' group that was infiltrated by an "intelligence agent" of the SFPD. That was in 1972, in San Francisco. He testified against us in court, and later attempted to mug me. I call him my favorite infiltrator.
US President George W. Bush on Monday declared his full support for a US-French United Nations resolution that dictates Israel's terms to the Lebanese people while allowing the Israeli military to indefinitely continue its occupation and devastation of Lebanon.
This document, far from an agreement for peace, represents one more step in widening the war initiated by the Bush administration in 2003 with the invasion of Iraq into a regional conflagration that poses an immense threat to working people not only in the Middle East, but in the US and all over the world.

The Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest began logging today in a roadless forest that was protected by the 2001 Roadless Area Conservation Rule which protected 58 million acres of public forest from industrial logging, and road-building. The Bush administration is now logging roadless forests, despite massive public opposition and a pending court cases challenging the logging.
More than 100 citizens from across the country attended a rally in front of the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest office in Medford today to protest the first logging of Roadless Areas. A dozen people with shirts reading "Roadless is Priceless" sat down in a road in front of the Forest Service office with potted trees. This resulted in twelve arrests, with charges still pending.
Kate Ritley a concerned citizen stated while being arrested that "There is nothing more precious than the wild and scenic forest of the Pacific Northwest. And today by the Bush administration cutting into Roadless Area's they are setting a national precedent that defies the will of the public and puts millions of acres across America at risk. I'm putting myself on the front line to take a stand against the Bush Administrations assault on America's forests."
