Scottish comedian's Nazi salute dog video was awful. But it wasn't a crime

A Scottish comedian was literally convicted of a crime for making a joke.
Mark Meechan, of Coatbridge, Lanarkshire, was found guilty in Airdrie Sheriff Court of a "hate crime" on Monday. His "hate crime?" His girlfriend constantly annoyed him by saying how cute her dog was. He wanted to annoy her back, so he filmed himself teaching her little pug, Buddha, to raise his paw any time he said "Sieg Heil." He also put the dog in front of a TV playing Adolf Hitler speaking at the 1936 Olympics and asked the dog, "Do you want to gas the Jews?"

Meechan posted the video on YouTube with the title "M8 Yer Dugs a Nazi," -- Scottish for "mate, your dog is a Nazi." At the end of the video, he clearly says that he is not racist, but just wanted to annoy his girlfriend.
Sheriff Derek O'Carroll said in court: "The accused knew that the material was offensive and knew why it was offensive. He would have known it was grossly offensive to many Jewish people."

Certainly, it is offensive to many people ("It is grossly offensive. It stuns me that anyone should think it is a joke," Ephraim Borowski, director of the Scottish Council of Jewish Communities, told the court).
But in a society that reveres free speech, that has to be beside the point. ...

On-the-ground reporting on Syria's war ...

this is not the armchair kind of reporting which is mostly just reading from texts provided by the PTB.

From RT's Redacted Tonight
No evidence of chemical weapon attack in Syria last month, with Eva Bartlett 

Lee Camp speaks with Eva Bartlett, who was just in Syria investigating the claims of a Syrian government-initiated chemical weapon attack on the Syrian people. He also tears apart US government claims that China is threatening our national security.

Has Trump bitten more than he can chew by colluding with Israel's warmongers? the Syrian war has all been planned, stage managed  and has been/being executed so Israel can continue stealing with USA's ready and willing help.

Ira Greenstein: Jared Kushner‘s Criminal Deal With Israel Behind U.S. Involvement In Syria For Genie Energy’s Control of the Golan Heights

A major conflict of interest looms over the Rose Garden, whether it spells the end of the Trump administration, has yet to be determined.
The Trump administration along with Jared Kushner employ in the White House, a lawyer by the name of Ira Greenstein from Newark, New Jersey, who was by all accounts still acting as President & in the interest of his energy corporation when the U.S. bombed Syria.*

Genie Energy.

An energy corporation operating privately in Syrian territory?—?the occupied Golan Heights.

U.S. President Donald Trump & his administration are inherently subjugated by this paradigm of interests. When commencing with hostile military action on Syria, they did so while having a direct conflict of interest, primarily related to business ties with this corporation. This, along with seemingly ulterior political dealings with the Israeli government, has gone part & parcel to the destabilization of Syria. While benefiting Genie Energy, its backers & involved officials.

Officials such as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

This essentially represents extortion against Syria, as part of a behind-the-scenes deal between parties, with Greenstein’s boss, the founder of Genie ....

Snowflakes Extraordinaire!

Nothing like Israel and their easily offended members from their extended diaspora all over the world to scream and cry "foul" at just about anything and everything.  Can't these snowflakes see that, that kind of attitude breeds more contempt for themselves and their fellow Jews in general??

Israel complains over Dutch TV Eurovision parody

The Israeli embassy in the Netherlands has lodged a complaint over a parody of Israel's Eurovision winner that criticised Israeli policies and prompted accusations of anti-Semitism.

The skit on Netta Barzilai's Toy was broadcast on Saturday during a primetime satirical show.

The parody drew on violence on the Gaza border, where 60 Palestinians were killed by Israeli forces.

The show's producers insist the song did not target the Jewish community....

...Dutch TV Toy parody lyrics

Look at me, I am such a sweet country.

World leaders eat obediently out of my hand. And I put out all fires with a kiss.

We are having a party, wanna come? Soon in the al-Aqsa mosque, which will soon be empty anyway.

From Haifa to the Dead Sea, there are fireworks and kosher satay. So just come and dance with me.

Is your country surrounded by rock throwers? Build walls like Trump himself has wet dreams about.

Throw a buk-a-buk, throw a buk rocket.

Look how nicely I throw bombs.

Yes, again, Israel is winning, Already for 70 years this party has been going on. Look how nice....

Canadian physician shot in legs by the army of the "only democracy in the Middle East"

Dr. Tarek Loubani of London, Ontario, lucky to be alive.  The Israeli Nazis didn't get their man, this time.

Description at video: As Palestinians vow to continue protesting against the Israeli occupation of Gaza, we speak to a Canadian doctor who was shot by Israeli forces in both legs Monday while he was helping injured Palestinians. Israeli forces shot dead at least 61 unarmed Palestinian protesters taking part in the Great March of Return Monday, including one doctor. Canada, Britain, Germany, Ireland and Belgium have called for an investigation into the killings. The United Nations Human Rights Council has announced that it will hold a special session Friday to discuss escalating violence in Gaza. We speak with Dr. Tarek Loubani, an emergency room medical doctor, one of 19 medical personnel shot in Gaza on Monday. Loubani is an associate professor at Western University in London, Ontario. He is a Palestinian refugee and a member of the Glia Project creating open-source medical devices for low-resource settings.

Why did United Nations' Tero Varjoranta resign??

Was he or his family threatened with bodily harm?  Was he blackmailed?  Did the PTB have some discriminating information on him that they threatened to disclose if he didn't resign?  What's going on????

IRAN – America’s Playbook of War Reopens

Almost universally missing from the UK’s mainstream media coverage of the current Iran crisis is the fact that the UN’s most senior nuclear inspector has unexpectedly ‘resigned.’

AP News 12/05/18: The U.N.’s nuclear watchdog says its top inspector has quit with immediate effect, just as the agency’s work in Iran is once again in focus. The International Atomic Energy Agency didn’t give a reason for the sudden resignation of Tero Varjoranta, stating Saturday that it doesn’t comment on confidential personnel matters. The move comes just days after U.S. President Donald Trump announced the United States would withdraw from the 2015 Iran nuclear accord designed to keep Tehran’s atomic weapons program in check.

The significance of this resignation is historical..........

The Killing of Gaza ... the movie

Description at video: In their new film "Killing Gaza," journalists Dan Cohen and Max Blumenthal capture the harrowing stories of Palestinians who survived the 2014 Israeli assault, and their struggles to recover and persist under a crippling blockade

Description at video: Max Blumenthal, director and writer of ‘Killing Gaza,’ and Dan Cohen, the documentary’s editor and cinematographer, discuss their new production, which details Israeli war crimes committed against the people of Gaza.

Does Europe have the backbone to say "No" to the world's #1 bully?

I doubt it.  But time will tell.  Perhaps if it is pushed too far and cornered like a rat, it might jump and squeak a bit but ultimately it will be swatted on the wall like a fly.  If Europe ever had a backbone, it's long been hammered into pulp by the USA and traitors within the union.

Gary Leupp at DissidentVoice
The Europe That Can Say No?

....There are all kinds of good reasons for Iran and the rest of the world to expand trade ties. (French cooks would like access to Iranian pistachios—the world’s best—and saffron.) And there’s no reason for other governments to embrace Bolton’s view that the Iranian government is the central banker of international terrorism. (Surely that is Saudi Arabia, the world’s leading supporter of Salafist Sunni Islamism, which supports the Syrian Liberation Front, the Army of Conquest, and Ahrar al-Sham. The Saudi monarchy, presiding over a society far more oppressive than Iranian or Syrian society—but spared media outrage—pursues its unholy alliance with Israel to bring down the regime in Tehran, preparing for the coming confrontation by invading Bahrain, isolating Qatar, pulverizing Yemen and bombing Syria at U.S. behest and kidnapped the Lebanese prime minister in order to influence Lebanese politics and diminish the role of Hizbollah.)

And there are all kinds of reasons for Europe to stand up to the U.S. and say, “Your sanctions are not our sanctions.” And maybe add: Your intentions for further regime change in the Middle East are not popular in Europe, which fears more waves of refugees. And also add: The sanctions you’ve demanded we impose on Russia following the February 2014 coup in Ukraine and consequent Russian reassertion of sovereignty over the Crimean Peninsula are hurting Europe and should be lifted....

.......The U.S. these days does not smell of freedom, democracy, liberal values, calm reason, tolerated dissent. It reeks of white nationalism, racist exclusion, institutional police violence and murder, and seemingly irrevocable tendency towards the concentration of wealth in the .01%. It is a fundamentally unfair, unjust, unadmirable society that tortures its youth by offering them low-paying jobs and endless student debt if they were lucky enough to go to college. It denies its people the normal standard of public health care and charges them twice the Canadian fees.

It is a basically a fucked-up country. That it, after its (ongoing) disasters in Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen, Somalia, Lebanon and elsewhere, it has no moral leg to stand on in lecturing Europe to maintain sanctions on Iran. After siding 100% with Israel, on everything imaginable, it has lost any credibility as an honest broker in international relations......

Israel is the only rogue nation with nukes in the Middle East

Everyone knows it, but hardly anyone articulates it to be so.  Wonder why? 

Description at video: There is in fact a Middle Eastern nation that is in fact in control of a vast, undeclared stockpile of nuclear weapons. This nation does have the capability of deploying those weapons anywhere in the region. It is not a signatory to the nuclear non-proliferation treaty and its arsenal has never been inspected by any international agency. But this nation is not Iran. It's Israel.

In our Orwellian world of today, victims are the culprits ...

and especially when it comes to Israel, the victims are all terrorists, even 8-month old infants.

Robert Fisk at InformationClearingHouse
How Long Will We Pretend That The Palestinians Are Non-people?

Monstrous. Frightful. Wicked. It’s strange how the words just run out in the Middle East today. Sixty Palestinians dead. In one day. Two-thousand-four-hundred wounded, more than half by live fire. In one day. The figures are an outrage, a turning away from morality, a disgrace for any army to create.

And we are supposed to believe that the Israeli army is one of “purity of arms”? And we have to ask another question. If it’s 60 Palestinians dead in a day this week, what if it’s 600 next week? Or 6,000 next month? Israel’s bleak excuses – and America’s crude response – raise this very question. If we can now accept a massacre on this scale, how far can our immune system go in the days and weeks and months to come?

Yes, we know all the excuses. Hamas – corrupt, cynical, no “purity” there – was behind the Gaza demonstrations. Some of the protesters were violent, sent burning kites – kites, for heaven’s sake – across the border, others threw stones; though since when has stone-throwing been a capital offence in any civilised country? If an eight-month-old baby dies after tear gas inhalation, what were her parents doing bringing their infant child to the Gaza border? And so it goes on. Why complain about dead Palestinians when we have the Sisis in Egypt and the Assads in Syria and the Saudis in Yemen to contend with? But no, the Palestinians must always be guilty.

The victims are themselves the culprits. This is exactly what the Palestinians have had to endure for 70 years. Remember how they were to blame for their own exodus seven decades ago, because they followed the instructions of radio stations to leave their homes until the Jews of Israel were “driven into the sea”. Only, of course, the radio broadcasts never existed. We still must thank Israel’s “new historians” for proving this. The broadcasts were a myth, part of Israel’s foundational national history invented to ensure that the new state – far from being founded on the ruins of other’s homes – was a land without people....

"The only democracy" in the Middle East ...

shows us in real time how Nazis behaved in Germany during WWII.

Coup r US

Worth a watch.

Description at video:
In March of 1951, Jacobo Arbenz came to power in Guatemala after having been resoundingly elected by the people. A little more than three years later, he was forced to resign in the midst of armed intervention. His reforms to redistribute unused land to poor peasants had fallen afoul of the United Fruit Company, which owned and warehoused vast tracts of Guatemalan land. The American corporation solicited the US government to overthrow the populist president and the Eisenhower administration delivered with the help of the Department of State and CIA, which happened to be led by the Dulles brothers, who had strong ties to the company. Arbenz’ ousting put an end to democracy in Guatemala for decades and replaced it by military rule. A civil war followed several years later, resulting in the deaths of over 200,000 people. The country remains one of Latin America’s most impoverished to this day. And Guatemala is but one of a myriad of countries whose fates have been catastrophically dictated by America’s imperialist interventions. In this film, American author, journalist, and academic Stephen Kinzer explores the formula and rationale the US uses to overthrow governments it doesn’t like, as well as its real motives. As illustrated in Guatemala, Libya, and Hawaii, the people in places whose governments were toppled by US-engineered coups are still dealing with the aftermath many years later.

Just like Israel, UK too has a wall ...

it's to keep out anything that throws a flashlight on the dark deeds of UK's puppet masters in Israel.

How the UK's wall of silence gives Israel impunity for its actions

Those who shout loudest about Labour Party anti-Semitism have nothing to say about Israel maiming and killing unarmed protesters in Gaza
For the past three months, Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party has been convulsed by accusations that his party is not just a critic of Israel and a harbourer of anti-Semites, but actually hostile to British Jews. The most damaging charge electorally is that British Jews no longer feel at home in Corbyn’s party.

Many of those voices are not people who normally have any worthwhile or informed opinion on the Middle East.

Today I asked some of those voices if they would condemn Israel's use of live ammunition to maim and kill unarmed protesters in the Gaza Strip.

I sent them the following set of questions:

1.   Do you unreservedly condemn the actions of the Israeli army yesterday?

2.   Do you agree with Jeremy Corbyn that international action must be taken in response to the Gaza border killings?

3.   If so, what action do you believe should be taken?

4.   If Israel behaves with impunity, what non-violent alternative do you believe there is to the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement?

5.   If the US vetoes a UN commission of inquiry into the killings, what pressure do you believe can be applied on Israel by the international community?

6.   Do you agree with Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman when he said in April that “there are no innocents in Gaza”?

7.    Would you qualify Israeli actions yesterday as “measured” and “surgical” (the words of Mark Regev on Radio 4 this morning)?

I sent these questions to the following people and organisations: the British Board of Deputies of British Jews; Labour Friends of Israel; Joan Ryan MP (chair of the LFI) and Chukka Umunna MP. I sent the same questions to Conservative Friends of Israel.
Questions unanswered

In all cases I gave a 4pm deadline. By late afternoon, I had not received an answer to a single one of my questions.......

America's Draft Dodger-in-Chief ...

praise be to him, he's accelerating the downfall of his warmongering country. What's not to like about that?

Felicity Arbuthnot at GlobalResearch
Draft Dodger in Chief Dodges “Historic” Opening of US Embassy, Jerusalem

It was NBC’s Cal Parry who summed up the obscenity of Donald Trump’s ignorant and igniting decision to move the US Embassy to West Jerusalem, then to celebrate the inauguration on Monday, 14th May: “Well dressed American and Israeli officials on one side of the screen: desperation, death and fires on the other.”

In 1948, 700,000 Palestinians began their flight from the city and the region trying to escape the massacres by Jewish militias on that date, seventy years ago. Commemorated ever since as the day of “Nakba” – disaster, catastrophe, cataclysm – following them to this day as land is stolen, families expelled and “settlements” encroach, and Palestinian history is bulldozed.

    ‘ “When the massacre started the (paramilitaries) took a kid and strapped him on an army jeep and drove him around different neighbourhoods of Jerusalem, saying ‘the same will happen to you if you don’t leave,’ ” Abu Kaya said, retelling his grandfather’s story to Middle East Eye.’ (1)

    “ … not a single country currently has its embassy in Jerusalem because such a move is widely considered to violate international law.”


    ‘Under United Nations Resolution 181, which in 1947 set out the conditions for the partition of Palestine into an “Arab State” and a “Jewish State”, Jerusalem was to be administered by the UN under a “special international regime.”

    ‘The 1949 armistice agreement that formally ended the first Arab-Israeli war divided the city along the “Green Line” into Israeli-controlled western areas, and Jordanian-held East Jerusalem, which included the Old City.’

    “Israel’s occupation of East Jerusalem and the West Bank since the 1967 Arab-Israeli war is widely recognised as illegal and violates further United Nations resolutions.

    “For Palestinians then, sovereignty over the city is not something for leaders of other countries to determine, as US President Donald Trump did when he announced the embassy move in December.”

    In the few minutes it took to jot down notes for this piece, the Palestinian death toll of those demonstrating rose from twenty eight dead, shot by Israeli soldiers, to forty three. The injured rose from 1,693 to “near two thousand.”...
