Facts the media isn't telling you

I found a video today on regarding the recent conflicts in the Levant territory (Palestine, Lebanon, Syria). Noam Chomsky tells the real deal of what really happened after Hamas won the election.

Israel and USA announced that they will punish the palestinian people for voting the wrong way in a free election but did not say how they will perform the punishment. Two palestinian civilians was abducted by Israel in Gaza and brought to Israel in late June.

Islamic Jihad acts quickly and abducts an israeli soldier near the border. As you probably know, his name is Gilad Shalit. The israeli government quicky responded and launched Operation Summer Rains with the goal to bring back Corpral Gilad Shalit. The operation was devastating for the palestinian people.

The Lebanese Hizballah kidnapped two israeli soldiers at the lebanese-israeli border causing a great crises. This was not done without any reason at all. Israel had at that time officially three lebanese prisoners. But that is not all. Hizballah felt sympathy for the people of Gaza and a two front conflict for Israel might release the pressure in Gaza Strip.

For the complete clip here's a link:

Oaxaca Resistance

The teachers in Oaxaca, Mexico only wanted better working conditions and a salery raise. The government responded with brutal attacks made by the mexican police force.

Join the demonstration in Stockholm on Monday the 20/11 to exploit your feelings regarding the brutal police acts. The demonstration starts at 18:00 in Hötorget and ends about two hours later in the vicinity of the Mexican embassy.

Join us for a world of solidarity and unity.

Ever since Spain left Western Sahara in 1975 the Front POLISARIO have been fighting the moroccan and mauritanian invaders. The Mauritanian army consisting of 3 000 armed men surrendered in 1979 due to Front POLISARIOS successful guerilla warfare. However, Moroccos armed forces kept attacking the Sahrawi people and its armed forces. A peacetreaty was signed in 1991 under UN surveillance. The Sahrawi people and Front POLISARIO are living in exil in refugee camps in Algeria.

In 1976 the Front POLISARIO established the Sahrawi Arabian Democratic Republic (SADR). It controlls parts of Western Sahara and acts as a democratic nation. It has full membership in the African Union since 1984 and over 80 countries recognize SADR.

In my opinion, I can not understand how two arabic nations could perform such horrible acts against a fellow arabian country. I think the Arab League should consider kicking Mauritania and Morocco out and instead make room for a West Saharian entrance.
