Jew Good is Jew Dead



Israeli occupation forces have launched numerous air strikes in Gaza, saying it is in response to Palestinian rocket fire and will establish a buffer zone in the area.

Aljazeera's correspondent in Gaza reported that Israeli warplanes launched five air strikes inside the Gaza Strip in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
The first attack targeted an uninhabited area while the second hit an office of Fatah in the city of Bait Lahiya, north of the Gaza Strip, causing serious damage.
The third strike struck east of the Gaza Strip, the fourth targeted the northern Salah al-Din street while the fifth one hit the city of Bait Hanun causing infrastructural damage. No casualties were reported.
Hours later, about two dozen armed al-Aqsa fighters demanding jobs took over three buildings - the governor's office, the Education Ministry and a religious court, in northern Gaza.
The armed men entered the buildings in northern Gaza armed with hand grenades, RPGs, rocket launchers and automatic rifles. Police stationed in a building next door watched the men enter, witnesses said, and did nothing to prevent the takeover.
Later, security surrounded the governor's office and Fatah officials, mediating by phone, tried to persuade the armed men to leave.
Dozens of children from a nearby school milled around watching the action, while two Israeli helicopter gunships hovered overhead. Police tried to set up roadblocks and keep the crowds away.


Rockets fired

The Israeli army said they launched the air strikes on Tuesday after a number of rockets were fired into Israel, causing no damage or injuries. The firing was reportedly claimed by the al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades.
Since Israel's withdrawal this summer from the Gaza Strip, more Israeli towns - including the city of Ashkelon and its power plant - have come into Palestinian rocket range. Earlier this month, a rocket landed near the power plant and a fuel depot, angering the Israelis.
Israeli Defence Minister Shaul Mofaz had on Monday ordered the army to begin implementing a security zone in the northern Gaza Strip that Palestinians will be barred from entering, a ministry source said.
The Israeli source said: "The defence minister has ordered the army to apply from Monday evening a decision taken last Thursday setting up a limitation on Palestinians circulating in the northern Gaza Strip, following rocket fire launched from this area toward southern Israel."
Isreali radio reported on Sunday that Ariel Sharon, the prime minister, had ordered the army to set a buffer zone in northern Gaza, a plan rejected outright by Palestinian leaders.
Any Palestinian straying into the zone, the extent of which will be determined by the Israeli occupation army, could be shot by troops from across the border.

Warning notices

Local media had reported that the army was awaiting an improvement in the weather before starting to enforce the area, but without re-occupying the territory it withdrew from earlier this year after a 38-year occupation.
Furthermore, Israel's Haaretz newspaper reported on Tuesday that the Israeli military intends to scatter warning notices from air force planes before striking Gaza Strip targets as it begins enforcing the buffer zone.
The notices will be scattered around areas from which Palestinian fighters launch Qassam rockets into Israel, Haaretz said.
The leaflets will call on Palestinian police officers to evacuate the northern Gaza Strip, and will state that the responsibility for potential civilian casualties in Israel air force strikes lies with the Qassam launchers, the newspaper added.

Arroio do Sal Beach


Desencontro

O nosso encontro foi um reles acidente geográfico
Um mero erro cósmico
Desta natureza tão perfeita
Quem foi que fez o mundo desastrosamente tão pequeno
Te atravessando inoportuno em plataforma abismal.

O nosso abandono foi um grande engano místico
Uma heresia má pagã de algum deus tísico
Quem foi que fez o tempo milagrosamente tão estreito
Te arrebatando em vôo diagonal
Do meu espaço existencial.


Me Deixe Mudo
Walter Franco

Não me pergunte
Não me responda
Não me procure
E não se esconda
Não diga nada
Saiba de tudo
Fique calada
Me deixe mudo
Seja num canto
Seja num centro
Fique por fora
Fique por dentro
Seja o avesso
Seja a metade
Se for começo
Fique à vontade.

Coração Tranquilo

Tudo é uma questão de manter
A mente quieta
A espinha ereta
E o coração tranquilo.

"O Que é que tem nessa cabeça, irmão
O Que é que tem nessa cabeça ou não
O Que é que tem nessa cabeça saiba irmão
O Que é que tem nessa cabeça saiba ou não
O Que é que tem nessa cabeça saiba que ela pode irmão
O Que é que tem nessa cabeça saiba que ela pode ou não
O Que é que tem nessa cabeça saiba que ela pode explodir irmão
O Que é que tem nessa cabeça saiba que ela pode explodir ou não."

Ahmadinejad: Move Israel to Europe

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the president of Iran, has triggered an international outcry by saying that Israel should be relocated to Europe.

Speaking on Thursday in Makka, Saudi Arabia, where he was attending a summit of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference, he said that if Germany and Austria believed that Jews were massacred during the second world war, a state of Israel should be established on their soil.
Ahmadinejad, who said in October that Israel must be "wiped off the map", was being interviewed on Al-Alam, an Iranian state satellite channel. According to a translation of his comments given to AFP, he said: "You believe the Jews were oppressed, why should the Palestinian Muslims have to pay the price?
"You oppressed them, so give a part of Europe to the Zionist regime so they can establish any government they want. We would support it.
"So, Germany and Austria, come and give one, two or any number of your provinces to the Zionist regime so they can create a country there ... and the problem will be solved at its root.
"Why do they insist on imposing themselves on other powers and creating a tumour so there is always tension and conflict?"
"I hope that these outrageous remarks will be a wake-up call to people who have any illusions about the nature of the regime in Iran."
Ahmadinejad's remarks were condemned by Germany, Austria and the US, at the forefront of an international campaign to prevent Tehran from acquiring nuclear weapons.
Price of oppression

In Ahmadinejad's interview, he referred to the Holocaust as a matter of belief, and raised the issue of revisionist historians - who attempt to establish that figures on the number of Jews killed by the Nazis are wildly exaggerated - being prosecuted in Europe.
The Holocaust was Nazi Germany's systematic slaughter of an estimated six million Jews between 1933 and 1945.
"Is it not true that European countries insist that they committed a Jewish genocide? They say that Hitler burned millions of Jews in furnaces ... and exiled them," he said.
"Then because the Jews have been oppressed during the second world war, therefore they [the Europeans] have to support the occupying regime of Quds [Jerusalem]. We do not accept this."

Blackbird


The Beatles

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise.
Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to be free.
Blackbird fly Blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night.
Blackbird fly Blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night.
Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
You were only waiting for this moment to arise.
