Survivors of German victims of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 downed over Ukraine plan to sue the country and its president for manslaughter by negligence in 298 cases, the lawyer representing them said on Sunday.
Professor of aviation law Elmar Giemulla, who is representing three families of German victims, said that under international law Ukraine should have closed its air space if it could not guarantee the safety of flights.
“Each state is responsible for the security of its air space,” Giemulla said in a statement emailed to Reuters. “If it is not able to do so temporarily, it must close its air space. As that did not happen, Ukraine is liable for the damage.”
It’s a silly question to ask; of course we’re a Muslim nation with a deep Islamic tradition – it should be enough that Barack Obama says Islam built America. But, as everybody knows, the history books were written by Islamophobes.
Many Americans, especially the notoriously ignorant home and private schooled types, actually believe our country was built on a Christian tradition. Nothing could be farther from the truth. A quick tour of American history should put the argument to rest once and for all.
Let’s begin with the Muslim pilgrims on the Mayflower in 1620, who left England to seek religious freedom in the New World. On the way, they wrote the Mayflower Compact to institute Sharia Law in the Plymouth colony. The Mayflower Compact famously begins with, “In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent…” and then goes on to explain how they will expand the Caliphate [World Domination].
A Russian humanitarian convoy crossed into Ukraine on Friday, drawing swift condemnations and threats from the [NWO] Obama administration, NATO and the US client regime in Kiev.
Taking back roads to avoid a confrontation with Ukrainian armed forces, the convoy of several hundred trucks carrying food, water, sleeping bags, power generators and other supplies arrived without incident in Luhansk Friday morning. Distribution of aid from centers set up throughout the city is scheduled to begin today.
The convoy had been stalled at the Ukraine-Russia border for more than a week as the [European Union] Kiev regime headed by [NWO] President Petro Poroshenko sought more time to carry out its brutal assault on areas in the Donbass region held by pro-Russian separatists [Eastern Ukrainians], including the cities of Luhansk and Donetsk. The convoy eventually crossed the border without approval from Kiev. [Good!!]
The plight of Kenya’s Sengwer people shows that carbon offsets generated by ‘sustainable’ forest management are empowering a corporate recolonisation of the South backed by the World Bank against its own guidelines, writes Nafeez Ahmed. Indigenous forest peoples are at risk of genocide while corporations let rip.
The government is permitting powerful logging companies to accelerate deforestation to buoy the Kenyan economy while systematically persecuting indigenous communities whose environmental impact is negligible.
Between 2000 and 2010, a total of 500 million acres of land in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean was acquired or negotiated under deals brokered on behalf of foreign governments or transnational corporations.
They don’t call it the “gutter press” for nothing. But Western so-called news media sunk to new toxic depths over the weekend in their coverage of the Malaysian airliner downed over Ukraine – and the death of all 298 people on board.
It was a veritable media-orgy of lies, propaganda and vilification spewed out by [Rothschild’s] American and European corporate news outlets. Whether online, television, or newspaper, the media went into overdrive to lay the blame for the disaster on Russia or “Russian-backed rebels” in Ukraine.
Of course, informed people around the world know that the Western mainstream media operates as a propaganda machine for powerful elite interests. But what is astounding is just how brazen the brainwashing purpose has become.
What do the forced departure of Brendan Eich from Mozilla and #CancelColbert have in common? They are both examples of Fakectivism. Fakectivism is social media activism by small numbers of people that is integrated into the news cycle because it matches the media’s political agenda.
Every Tea Party member knows that media coverage of actual protests is unequal. Twenty students, most of them volunteers at an environmental non-profit, protesting Keystone will get media coverage that a thousand Tea Party members protesting ObamaCare won’t receive.
Every day that goes by, we continue to see a continued widespread assault from the prostitutes in the corporate mocking bird mainstream media. The assault is always the same: wave after wave of brainless nonsense, written to dumb down the masses of sheep while spinning the truth and promoting an agenda.
I have often written that I despise the corporate mass media more than the Banksters and the corrupt political thugs who are running / ruining our nation and our society. At no time in our history has the American media evolved into the disgusting propaganda mechanism that it has currently become.
The lack of journalistic integrity, the total absence of basic fact checking, the heavily biased opinions and the blatant lies and misinformation that constantly spew from “unnamed” or ‘anonymous” sources are a total and complete disgrace in every aspect.
