3/4/8 Why Resistance is Urgent: Call for International Palestine Tribunals

Please print and forward widely!

Below is a concise and direct declaration that calls for holding international tribunals for those guilty of the successive campaigns
of terror against the Palestinian people. It is unique in that it is the first international public effort to hold guilty Arab regimes,
Palestinians, Israelis, and US officials fully responsible for the ongoing Zionist crimes. By signing this declaration and by passing it
through as much as possible worldwide, where all signatories are sought and welcomed, we will be initiating the first real steps to
holding war tribunals internationally.

This is also a tangible step to returning Palestine to its international position as a flagship for justice and self-determination. We urge you to actively support thi declaration wherever you are, on every continent. Take it to your protests, ask your organization to sign on, engage everyone about who is responsible, and help build a momentum that will go well beyond protests and temporary reactions into sustained efforts and full accountability.

We look forward to forming international tribunal committees soon after.

Please sign and pass it on. Time is critical!

taking place against the Palestinian people, particularly those of the
Gaza Strip, not only as a war crime but also as a crime against

China is at the center of the U.S. "Prevent the Re-Emergence of a New Rival" doctrine. Why & how the U.S. has China in its crosshairs is the focus of this digest issue.

Amerika's world dominance is doomed. Military might and aggression cannot secure what was fundamentally based upon political - economic hegemony of U.S. capital following imperialist world war 2. The effects of the cynically branded 'war on terrorism' is irreparably deepening the structural crisis of capital that drove the U.S. to this new imperialist world war to expand and secure unrivalled world rule. Faced with defeat, rising capitalist rivalry, profound hatred and undefeatable resistance from all corners of the globe, U.S. fascist 'soft' and 'hard power' state terror fuels unquenchable wildfires.

This bipartisan geostrategic agenda is the actual framework for myriad media-disconnected events in Palestine, Africa, Latin America, Asia and the "homeland". Connecting deliberately disconnected 'dots' reveals the picture essential forr political understanding and action:

2/21/8 "U.S. Struggles to Tutor Iraqis in Rule of Law" Remember Malcolm X

In honor of Malcom X: Truth and Revolutionary Struggle
The U.S. struggle to tutor the world in capitalism's rule of law, its white supremacist 'manifest destiny', for hundreds of years has wrought unimaginable degradation, destruction and death, but more vital for the future, the magnificent courage and resistance of millions, leaders, heritage and hope.
Malcolm X, former Muslim, one of our great revolutionary leaders, was murdered On Feb. 21, 1965, at 39 years old, by U.S. assassins as he was about to address a rally in Harlem, NYC, so fearful were the cowardly oppressors of the political movement his truth inspired.
Malcolm stripped the system bare naked for us. We need to learn from him today. 'They can kill revolutionaries', as BPP Fred Hampton another, great Black leader murdered by the state, said, 'but they can't kill the revolution'.
Will we?

"I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in anyway the social and political equality of the white and black races - that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race. I say upon this occasion I do not perceive that because the white man is to have the superior position the negro should be denied everything." -- Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865) 16th US President Source: Fourth Debate with Stephen A.

[info_onepalestine] Urgent Action Alert--Help Save Dr. Wilkerson's Job
Sunday, February 10, 2008


Last December, Dr. Catherine Wilkerson dealt a blow to local forces of
repression when, after a six-day trial, she was acquitted of the bogus
charges brought against her by the University of Michigan and Washtenaw
County Prosecutor Brian Mackie. She had hoped then to get on with caring for
her patients at the Packard Community Clinic but, if anything, local
Zionists and their minions seem more determined than ever to punish her for
speaking out against the Jewish apartheid state of Israel and its local
backers. The management of the Packard Community Clinic has decided to fire
Dr. Wilkerson and on February 4th they set February 15th as her last day of
work. Below you will find a statement by Dr. Wilkerson explaining more fully
what is happening.

The Committee to Defend Catherine Wilkerson has issued this urgent action
alert because we want to encourage the Governing Board of the Packard
Community Clinic to stop the firing of Dr. Wilkerson and to stop the
harassment of her for engaging in constitutionally-protected free speech
activities on her own time and in her own name. Specifically, we are asking
supporters of Dr. Wilkerson to do two things. First, please contact the
Governing Board as soon as possible. A written letter is considered one of
the most effective forms of advocacy. You can mail one to the address in the
sample letter below and/or send a fax to the Governing Board at (734)
971-8545. You may also leave a phone message at (734) 971-1073 or send an
e-mail to info@packardclinic.org. Second, please sign our online petition,
which you can find at http://www.ipetitions.com/ petition/keepwilkerson/ . A
press conference and a rally in front of the clinic are being contemplated

Digest commentary:
Control of communications and information -- control of the internet -- is central to the bipartisan U.S. world war for global rule. The U.S. mainstream media is loyally silent on the scope and implications of this fundamental suppression of freedom of information, communication and organizing.
Microsoft's attempted hostile Yahoo takeover certainly represents greater concentration of corporate power and control. But, along with other internet and telecom corps. collaboration with the "war on terrorism", beyond the concentration of capital, it is an emblematic function of the "homeland's" deepening fascist state infrastructure.

2/3/8 Ominous Political Wrap-Ups

Digest note: not planned as part of the digest's "Fear & Terror Factory" series, the following is however related and relevant.


This old "information" that showed up in an unrelated google search is timely now in the bogus "GWOT" not mainly because it reveals the role of a few well-known scumbags, Lyndon La Rouche & David Horowitz, but it reveals how U.S. PSYOPS creates "intelligence" databases that are grounds for criminalizing political opposition in the name of "national security". In this sense, it is a microcosm of the how the U.S. GWOT, a war against all opposition and resistance to U.S. imperialism, operates. State-terrorist-in-chief-figurehead said to Congress two weeks after the U.S. engineered 911 -- greenlight for the GWOT -- "if you aren't with us, you're with the terrorists", explicitly summarizing the imperialist-zionist strategy in the genocidal juggernaut for "full spectrum" global dominance.

To old - time activists the ridiculous RU/RCP wrap - up would be an hilarious bad joke -- if it wasn't part of the deadly serious manufactured big lies to officially designate, imprison indefinitely, torture and kill those any/all the state calls "terrorist". Regardless of one's views of the RCP or any of the other 'leftist' groups and individuals listed, such fascist state attacks must be exposed and opposed by all anti-imperialist, socialist, progressive and revolutionary people.

“Actions are held to be good or bad, not on their own merits, but according to who does them. There is almost no kind of outrage-----torture, imprisonment without trial, assassination, the bombing of civilians .. . which does not change its moral color when it is committed by ‘our’ side. The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them.”-

The Myth of International Terrorism
The Power of Nightmares: Video Documentary
In the past politicians offered us dreams of a better world. Now they promise to protect us from nightmares. The most frightening of these is the threat of an international terror network. But just as the dreams were not true, neither are these nightmares.
British author and producer Adam Curtis (“Power of Nightmares re-awakened” BBC), made attempts to re-awaken the human conscience that the myth of international terrorism is a misleading political phenomenon to embark on American ambitions of global hegemony. Michael Meacher, MP and former UK Minister of Environment of Blair’s Cabinet points out the same agenda (“This War on Terrorism is Bogus:”):
“... the so called “war on terrorism” is being used largely as bogus cover for achieving wider US strategic geopolitical objectives.”
