Press TV has interviewed Pam Bailey, with the Euro-Med Monitor of Human Rights from Washington, to ask for her take on the ongoing Israeli atrocities against Palestinians.
What follows is a rough transcription of the interview.
Press TV: Looking at the situation, as we have just said, 90 Palestinians have been killed since October; however, we are not seeing that much of an outrage when it comes to Israeli human rights violations be it through arresting minor Palestinians aged 12 to 14 or be it through the demolition of homes and of course these killings.
Bailey: Well, especially now. You know, now you have got everybody focusing on Paris and bombing Syria and it is sort of working out to Israel’s favor. So no one is paying attention which gives Israel a blank check to do whatever it wants. So Israel is really exploiting the opportunity at this point.
Press TV: Many have pointed out; you know not to diminish anything from the tragedy that took place in Paris, but the reality is that the Palestinians have to live through that horror day in and day out at the hands of the Israeli settlers and forces.
Bailey: Yes absolutely, again not to belittle what you said what happened in Paris is terrible, but you have the Palestinians who have been living through daily direct violence or structural violence for nearly decades now, but at least in Gaza 7 or 8 years. So it has become a daily reality for them and yet the world stage, you know the government leaders, the media and the public seem to swing from crisis to crisis as soon as it gets a little bit less urgent or as soon as another emergency happens…and then you have these used-long crises that were allowed just keep festering.
(Bailey:) No one seems to want to deal with the underlying cause and the underlying cause is the occupation and the blockade and I think the world is sort of throwing up their hands. They say it cannot be solved, they say it is because the two sides cannot come on an agreement, no partners for peace, no strong leaders, but the reality is the international community does not have the backbone.
This afternoon already there is a lot of information and commentary online on this subject, and it is becoming clearer that what unfolded in Paris last night is questionable on many counts. The sites listed here yesterday continue to follow this story and post multiple news and commentary articles, please keep visiting them for probing analysis and commentary. (Additional sites/links below.)
At this particular point in world affairs, given the multiple number of False Flags–terror unleashed by governments on their own people, in the guise of foreign terrorism–that we have all experienced or learned about in the last 20 years, and more, we need to be very aware that, in this 21st-Century of Hi-Tech Surveillance and Weaponry, False Flag Terror has become a tool of corrupt governments–as part of their self-allowed arsenal of PsyOps, Military Deception, and Government Propaganda, and it is a tool that is used against the people, in an attempt to tighten the noose around all of us of the Surveillance state, High-Security state, Police state. Almost any act of public violence, particularly involving multiple victims, needs to be scrutinized in this regard.
What happens immediately post False Flag Terror?The quick passing of laws decreeing increased Surveillance–witness the Patriot Act in the US, and a new surveillance law passed in France post-Hebdo attacks in January, whose intent is very close to the Patriot Act–mass surveillance, vaccuuming up metadata, wiretapping everyone. The potential for Martial law, foreign wars, the increase of secret police actions, and the use of New-Age classified Directed-Energy Weaponry on the people, to stifle dissent and control populations. This reality is already here, in large part, in many countries in the world–people from all around the world are now reporting covert assaults with Directed Energy Weaponry (DEWs) on blogs, talk shows, and alternative media (while mainstream media, clearly complicit, keeps mum about it). This is not exclusive to any one country–these assaults are global, and they are surely part of a secret Global Policing initiative, part of the ruthless underground roll-out of Global Techno-Governance–being kept covert by nature of the deadly neurotechnology being used, that governments actually seem to think they can keep classified forever–secret radiation weaponry offers an opportunity for secret assault, an opportunity currently not being passed up by unscrupulous governments. (An issue of especial concern to this site, which will be covered in greater detail in many articles to come.)
Why do we need to figure out what exactly is going on?Because being taken in by False Flag Terror is one step away from permitting and acquiescing to excessive government surveillance, and the further stripping-down of our rights. Many in the US thought it was perfectly fine to pass a medieval law like the Patriot Act after 9/11, and many in France believed the Hebdo attacks came from outside. I have no idea anymore how exactly one compels one’s government to listen to what the people want–they don’t heed protests, emails, faxes, petitions, except if bombarded with these en masse maybe–since they seem to steamroll ahead and embark on illegal wars and illegal assaults just as they please. But I do believe our reality worldwide is changing. We are becoming aware globally of what these governments and multinationals are doing to us, and there are many ways we can withdraw consent from their actions and policies.
One day I believe all these corrupt governments will be completely stopped from creating False Flag Terror–and that day will come only if we can wake up today and see it for what it is while it’s happening. Our consciousness is literally the only peaceful tool we have today to make a difference in how our collective future turns out. If we don’t want that Brave New World of their dystopian dreams, we need to stay aware of what they’re doing and through our very awareness stop them from envisioning it or enabling it.
Excerpt:How Did France’s Expanding Surveillance State Miss This?
On a scale significantly larger than the previous Paris terror attack carried out against several targets across the capital in January of this year ending in the death of 12, the Western media is already assigning blame to the so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS/ISIL) or those “inspired” by ISIS.
The new law will allow authorities to spy on the digital and mobile phone communications of anyone linked to a “terrorist” inquiry without prior authorisation from a judge. It forces internet service providers and phone companies to give up data upon request. Intelligence services will have the right to place cameras and recording devices in private homes and install so-called keylogger devices that record every key stroke on a targeted computer in real time. The authorities will be able to keep recordings for a month and metadata for five years. One of the most contentious elements of the bill is that it allows intelligence services to vacuum up metadata, which would then be subject to analysis for potentially suspicious behaviour. The metadata would be anonymous, but intelligence agents could follow up with a request to an independent panel for deeper surveillance that could yield the identity of users.
Despite having allegedly lacked these capabilities before the “Charlie Hebo attack,” it would be revealed shortly after that indeed, French security agencies were extensively familiar with the attackers years beforehand – letting the suspects “drop from their radars” just 6 months before the attack occurred, precisely the amount of time generally required for planning and executing such an attack.First appeared: http://journal-neo.org/2015/11/14/attack-in-france-state-sponsored-terror-but-which-state/
Excerpt: If one would notice, there’s now a developing trend out of Europe where the incumbent Cabalists are being knocked out of power, one by one, by progressive parties with the direct participation of the awake and aware segment of the European society.
Leftist, socialists, and even nationalists are gaining political foothold in Britain, Portugal, Spain and France itself, and suspects #2 and #3, not only have the capabilities to launch such attacks, they are also highly motivated considering their loses across the Middle East and at home.
The present French government is under threat from Marine Le Pen’s National Front Party, and the national economy is deteriorating since 2013…
Also:Finally, we would like to ask about some of the conflicting details of the attack:
How many assailants exactly were there considering the already conflicting numbers being broadcasted from several attackers now progressing to a lone gun nut;
Certainly, the security of the country is on heightened alert for at least four (4) reasons: the ongoing influx of refugees, the UN “climate change” summit, the fallout of the Charlie Hebdo false flag, and the recently concluded “The Shared 21st Century International Mission” featuring CIA Director John Brennan, former UK MI6 Chief John Sawyers, Director of the French Directorate for External Security Bernard Bajolet [see video below]. Hmmmn, what a coincidence, right?
Are the gunmen still in “police custody”, “or are they all “dead”?
How many were the actual victims? The numbers keep on changing by the minute.
The French Government, CIA and MOSSAD intelligence agencies are our prime suspects. At the very least, the French government is yet to come clean on Charlie Hebdo false flag operation, participated in by military shaven crisis actors [here], before this particular event could be considered a real terrorist attack.
Excerpt: My heart goes out to anyone who lost a family member in these horrific attacks, it does, but once again, history tells us to keep a watchful eye over what happens next. With details still sketchy at best, and the number of dead or injured being very fluid, one number I noticed in the video below was not fluid: President Hollande declared a state of emergency and mobilized 1,500 troops to patrol Paris streets. In the video, you’ll see an article that says “officials“ have the right to perform searches, and “military justice” may be enacted. I assume that means citizens can get ventilated if they aren’t fully cooperative, no questions asked… but who knows? Also in one article, Obama promises to do “whatever it takes” to bring the terrorists to justice. Hmmmm.
The task of keeping a city or a country safe is one that very few people in this world have to deal with, so who are we to second guess their decisions right? Is 1,500 troops a harsh response? Would 500 be better? What about 5,000? It’s easy to Monday morning quarterback a scenario after it’s over, but right now there’s no way to know if the attack is over, not for sure anyway, and the government’s priority SHOULD be protecting the people of Paris… period.
Where things begin to get dicey, is how and when all the current hightened sensitivity begins to dissipate… or doesn’t it? Once the threat has been contained, and that is confirmed, do the soldiers remain on the streets? Are searches and “military justice” still sanctioned? Recall the words of former Obama Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel, “never let a crisis go to waste.” It’s disgusting to think that “conspiracy theorists” jump immediately to the possibility of a false flag attack, when there are families that don’t even know to begin grieving yet… BUT… anyone who doesn’t believe a government would fire on it’s own for what it perceives to be the “greater good,” doesn’t know history very well.
Earlier this week, the United States did our best North Korea impression with the launching of two nuclear capable missiles. Just yesterday, in a post titled, Jim Willie Explains U.S. Nuclear War Threats to China and Russia Over Challenging Dollar Supremacy, Jim Willie explained why the U.S. would risk nuclear war at this point. The world is a powder keg waiting to blow, and events unfolding in the Middle East and Europe are at the heart of the tensions. Who knows what a government might do to rationalize actions it felt were in its best interests. Whether Paris was a false flag attack or not should be more evident in the days to come as we watch and see how the government responds. Whether it is or it isn’t, doesn’t negate the fact that we live in a time that as citizens, we have to be eternally vigilant of our surroundings if we expect to survive. That includes being VERY aware of what our governments are up to.
Excerpt: The political discourse is in some regards reminiscent of the 9/11 attacks and the statements of George W. Bush et al.
The media immediately started comparing the November 13 attacks in Paris to 9/11, intimating that France was at war and that the alleged Islamic State attack was from abroad, i.e. the Middle East.
Police State Measures
President Hollande had ordered by decree without debate or consultation with France’s National Assembly the enactment of a State of Emergency throughout France, coupled with the closing of France’s borders allegedly to prevent terrorists from coming in, and from terror suspects from leaving the country.
The measures also included procedures which enable the police to conduct arbitrary arrests and house searches without a warrant within the Paris metropolitan area opening up the development of a potential hate campaign directed against France’s Muslim population.
These drastic police state measures (including the repeal of habeas corpus) ordered by president Hollande were decided upon prior and in the absence of a police report. Initial reports confirmed the involvement of half a dozen terrorists. There was no evidence of a nationwide terror network.
But as we mentioned above, Hollande had no doubt been briefed by French intelligence which had, according to reports, “predicted” the possibility of a 9/11 style attack. (October 2 media reports).
Still vital for the rest of us with conscience to speak out against a new war in Syria, and a return to war in Iraq–at the cost of billions of dollars, and unimaginable cost to human life and peace everywhere. Also vital to keep speaking out against surveillance and censorship of journalists, activists, writers, and everyday working citizens. And PETA tells us new horrors are being unveiled in recent NIH-funded use of baby macaques ($30 million spent in the last 7 years to traumatize newborns) building on 30 years of needless psychological and physical torture. NRDC tells us the Navy is knowingly going ahead with 5-year mid-frequency sonar testing expected to strand, maim, and kill thousands of whales and other sea creatures.
Just Foreign Policy is running a campaign to get Congress to debate bombing Syria. The Committee to Protect Journalists is running a campaign to speak out for journalists. PETA is running a campaign to stop the torture of baby monkeys. NRDC is running a petition to the Secretary of Defense to stop the sonar testing. There is another petition as well on The Petition Site to stop the sonar.
“The staggering costs of all this—$25 billion to train the Iraqi Army,$60 billion for the reconstruction-that-wasn’t,$2 trillion for the overall war, almost4,500 Americans dead and more than 32,000 wounded, and an Iraqi death toll of more than190,000 (though some estimates go as high as amillion)—can now be measured against the results. The nine-year attempt to create an American client state in Iraq failed, tragically and completely. The proof of that is on today’s front pages.” Read Peter van Buren’s op-ed at Nation of Change on the madness of returning to war in Iraq and bombing Syria.
“Søren Kierkegaard in “The Present Age” warned that the modern state seeks to eradicate conscience and absorb individuals into a public that can be shaped and manipulated by those in power.” Read Chris Hedges’ op-ed on continuous war, the madness of a new war, and what the US is trending toward, via Simone Weil’s ruminations on war, 1984, and the distant memory of the Roman Empire.
