The Channel 4 News interviewer was clearly tasked with trying her best to corner Jeremy Corbyn into condemning his presents where anyone who ever did anything wrong was "laid to rest," as it were. I think he handled it well when he pointed out that people are mingled in cemeteries all over the world. Imagine if nobody steps foot in a cemetery because someone disagreed with (a murderer, etc.) is buried there.
By the way, the comment section on the YouTube video is scathing against Channel 4 News. Some comments are stating that the people Netanyahu claims are buried there actually aren't. I'd love for that to be verified.
Jeremy Corbyn made perfectly clear why he was there and what he did. Anyone who thinks he was there to lay a wreath at the graves of those who undertook the Olympic's attack needs his or her head and heart examined.
Why did Channel 4 News undertake to help out in the inquisition (obviously falsely based on its face) of Jeremy Corbyn on behalf of Benjamin Netanyahu rather than similarly questioning Netanyahu for war crimes and acts of terrorism (sniping unarmed teenagers in the back was, of course, done in an attempt to strike terror into the hearts of those protesting for their internationally recognized legal right of return, the same right ironically claimed by many Jews to return to that land)?
Jeremy steered clear of defining the Netanyahu government as being a terrorist government and Israel as being a terrorist state. I think he should have asked the interviewer to define her terms. How many acts does it take?
Anyway, I commend him for turning the topic back to the anti-peace activities of the Netanyahu government. He so "polite" about it, however. I'm assuming he thinks he's being diplomatic and not burning bridges. I think there's a place where he could speak in tougher terms and still not step beyond the pale.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn talks to Channel 4 News about the wreath-laying controversy - and Benjamin Netanyahu's criticism of him.
This is a prime example of bad psychological screening, bad training, bad senior-level evaluation, bad community understanding, and on and on.
In a press conference after a video surfaced showing a Baltimore police officer repeatedly punching a city residents Commissioner Gary Tuggle says the second officer on the scene could not intervene because he feared for his safety from onlookers.
I do not recognize the claimed territorial rights of the totalitarian dictatorship of mainland China over the independent, democratic, nation-state of Taiwan, and neither should anyone else.
I have never agreed to the US switching to the dictatorship's "one-China" position.
President Donald Trump's administration denied Tuesday any change to its "One-China" policy after Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen made a political speech in the US, the first time in 15 years a Taiwanese leader has done so.
Trump is wholly inconsistent even while twisting. He places heavy sanctions on Venezuela, which is not a dictatorship but a democracy under attack by libertarian and crony capitalists for being to generous to its poor. Meanwhile, he cozies up to dictators, such as in Saudi Arabia.
The critics are foolishly defined by law as anti-Semitic for criticizing Israel. That's the law they try to spread around the world and that some governments have been stupid enough to adopt and should rollback ASAP.
... "you can discuss and debate the relations between Israel and Palestine, the future of the peace process and, yes, make criticisms of the actions of the Israeli government in the bombing of Gaza and other places."
"But you can never make those criticisms using anti-Semitic language or anti-Semitic intentions, and that is what we are absolutely clear on," Corbyn said.
Exactly, there's a distinct difference between making anti-Jew statements and criticizing the Netanyahu government and Israeli policies and practices concerning the Palestinians, etc.
Keep saying that until people are sick of hearing it. If you don't, the Tories and Blairites (Labour in name only) will continue their neocon Big-Lie tactics against Labour and you, Jeremy Corbyn.
Remember, every single time they make a false claim to change the subject off Netanyahu's disgusting government, just change it right back to Netanyahu and the right-wing Zionists' illegal racist policies and acts.
Corbyn responded: "Netanyahu's claims about my actions and words are false. What deserves unequivocal condemnation is the killing of over 160 Palestinian protesters in Gaza by Israeli forces since March, including dozens of children."
That's correct, but Jeremy Corbyn needs to hammer on it and needs to name Netanyahu by name. Corbyn needs to hammer on it more than 10 times as much as anyone is trying to smear Labour as being more anti-Semitic, which it isn't, and smear Corbyn for not pretending Labour is more anti-Semitic than the Tories or the general public. He also needs to point the finger right at Netanyahu for Israel's high percentage of admitted racists.
If he's going to win, he has to fight for the truth. He has to be relentless, as do his followers. He has to take the media to task for playing into the smear campaign, smears based upon blatant lies. He has to call those who have undertaken the smear campaign what they are: liars!
... anti-Semitic is a term that is invented to prevent people from criticizing the Jews for doing wrong things," Mahathir said.
"When somebody does wrong, I don't care how big they are. They may be powerful countries but if they do something wrong, I exercise my right of free speech. They criticize me, why can't I criticize them?" he said.
"This is a new regional strategy to outlaw leaders, movements and political forces that expanded rights and allowed millions of people out of poverty during the first decade and a half of the 21st Century," Kirchner wrote Monday on Twitter.
Delivered cash specifically to whom? How can it be determined whether entries in the notebooks are all accurate and that none is there to frame anyone? Has the author of the notebooks taken a lie-detector test and been asked about it?
That's nonsense. Those who don't want socialism to be tried, let alone to work, always wrongly conflate socialism with central planning and dictatorship rather than discussing unmolested democratic socialism. In addition, whenever democratic socialism starts up anywhere and begins to succeed, which it always does, those who want it to fail always sanction it and work behind the scenes to undermine it rather than simply competing with it in the capitalistic "market." They wouldn't dare simply compete, as they know full well they'd lose.
D’Souza said he thinks the most shocking moment in the film is when a group of senior Nazis is shown sitting around a table and drafting the Nuremberg Laws using the Jim Crow laws drafted by Democrats, which enforced racial segregation in the South.
“This is a historical fact,” he said. “And the senior Nazis look at each other, and they basically say to each other, ‘These Democratic laws are too racist even for us.’”
The entire context there is twisted. Those racist Democrats have since switched to the Republican Party. It's that simple. They were called Dixiecrats and were drawn into the Republican Party playing the race card in what was called the Southern Strategy.
The following appears in the footer of every page:
According to the IRS, "Know the law: Avoid political campaign intervention":
Tax-exempt section 501(c)(3) organizations like churches, universities, and hospitals must follow the law regarding political campaigns. Unfortunately, some don't know the law.
Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are prohibited from participating in any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. The prohibition applies to campaigns at the federal, state and local level.
Violation of this prohibition may result in denial or revocation of tax-exempt status and the imposition of certain excise taxes. Section 501(c)(3) private foundations are subject to additional restrictions.
Political Campaign Intervention
Political campaign intervention includes any activities that favor or oppose one or more candidates for public office. The prohibition extends beyond candidate endorsements.
Contributions to political campaign funds, public statements of support or opposition (verbal or written) made by or on behalf of an organization, and the distribution of materials prepared by others that support or oppose any candidate for public office all violate the prohibition on political campaign intervention.
Factors in determining whether a communication results in political campaign intervention include the following:
Whether the statement identifies one or more candidates for a given public office
Whether the statement expresses approval or disapproval of one or more candidates' positions and/or actions
Whether the statement is delivered close in time to the election
Whether the statement makes reference to voting or an election
Whether the issue addressed distinguishes candidates for a given office
Many religious organizations believe, as we do, that the above constitutes a violation of the First Amendment of the US Constitution.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
That said, we make the following absolutely clear here:
The Real Liberal Christian Church and Christian Commons Project not only do not endorse any candidate for any secular office, we say that Christianity forbids voting in such elections.
Furthermore, when we discuss any public-office holder's position, policy, action or inaction, we definitely are not encouraging anyone to vote for that office holder's position.
We are not trying to influence secular elections but rather want people to come out from that entire fallen system.
When we analyze or discuss what is termed "public policy," we do it entirely from a theological standpoint with an eye to educating professing Christians and those to whom we are openly always proselytizing to convert to authentic Christianity.
It is impossible for us to fully evangelize and proselytize without directly discussing the pros and cons of public policy and the positions of secular-office holders, hence the unconstitutionality of the IRS code on the matter.
We are not rich and wouldn't be looking for a fight regardless. What we cannot do is compromise our faith (which seeks to harm nobody, quite the contrary).
We render unto Caesar what is Caesar's. We render unto God what is God's.
When Caesar says to us that unless we shut up about the unrighteousness of Caesar's policies and practices, we will lose the ability of people who donate to us to declare their donations as deductions on their federal and state income-tax returns, we say to Caesar that we cannot shut up while exercising our religion in a very reasonable way.
We consider the IRS code on this matter as deliberate economic duress (a form of coercion) and a direct attempt by the federal government to censor dissenting, free political and religious speech.
It's not freedom of religion if they tax it.
And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free. (Matthew 17:24-26)
