12 November 2012
Dear President Obama,
Firstly I got to congratulate you for being re-elected to be the President of United State of America.
On Straits Times dated 10 November 2012, this was what Mr. Kishore Mahbubani dean of the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore said, “Today, the United States is a role model of political paralysis – it cannot fix any of its problems.” YOU GOT TO PROVE HIM WRONG! Hope you can be inspired by his next article Obama’s Chance to Shape Global Order(1)
The wind is blowing to the direction of Justice and Fairness and all it takes is for COURAGE to take center stage to make the world right. Can we make the world right? YES, WE CAN!! Let’s make the world right through your great leadership and Almighty God will show you the way and most importantly I want you to know that the citizens of the world are behind you all the way. On your election day when I was in a taxi the driver wanted you to win so that Iran will not be bomb, can you bit this because many Singaporeans are not interested in politics but this insane need of Israel to bomb Iran got the whole world angry that even ordinary people like this taxi driver could not take it anymore!
“I’m a blessed soul” is the most read article in my other blog www.dearmmlee.com and this was what I had written, “I know the vision of world harmony is too big for me and my daughter to carry it alone, yet I went ahead with it without a word of complaint and kept on going simply because my love for God and humanity is undying. We must give hope to the future generation that is the greatest gift to our children. Let’s not forget “we do not inherit this earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children.” – Haida Indian Saying, hence it is our duty and responsibility to keep this world safe for the children by being proactive and take a stake even in world affairs.”
On World Harmony Day 2003 because of the Iraq war, my daughter and I were highly misunderstood when we voiced out the need to stop the war. Never the one to give up and to be at peace with my soul I had written 3 letters to George Bush but I did not receive any reply. http://worldharmonyday.com/news_letters_bush.php
As for my daughter Greta Georges Habib she was as committed to revealing the deception of George Bush hence she left for Europe and did the film “Where are the Weapons of Mass Destruction”. This was the caption on her film when she participated in Singapore 3rd Shorts Film Festival.
“The problems plaguing the world today from a young girl’s point of view. This light-hearted docu-drama covers the “Forum 2004” international event in Barcelona, Spain. Plus interviews from actor Susan Saradon, Clive Nyrie, BBC war-embedded journalist in the Iraq war, the senior editor of the Sunday Times and others. She also journeys to the inauguration of President George W. Bush in Washington and witnesses the demonstration “No Oil for Blood” in New York.”
The LMDs (Lies of Mass Destruction) That Took Us To War REVEALED
She interviewed Dr Kate Hudson, Chair of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament and this was what she said, “Even if there have been evidence of some sought of WMD in Iraq we will not have supported a war to disarm. We don’t believe in killing people is an effective mean of disbarment. It goes against our principle.”
She interviewed a stranger and asked him what did he thinks of Iran? And he said that the Iranians were nice people and I couldn’t agree more. Iran does not have WMD but Israel has plenty http://www.palestinebedrockoftheworld.com/israel-weapons-of-mass-destruction/ and just because Israel is feeling insecure even though they have plenty of nuclear weapons http://www.palestinebedrockoftheworld.com/pat-buchanan-300-nukes-in-israel-yet-iran-a-threat/ and is afraid that Iran might one day build nuclear weapons does this justify an act of war on Iran so that Israel can sleep better? What kind of world are we living in if this kind of insane act is allowed to happen? Is the world existence just about Israel survival as a nation? In fact, Mr. Kenneth Waltz believed it is good for Iran to have nuclear capability because Nuclear Balancing Would Mean Stability for the region. I hope you can have a direct talk with Iran to give hope to the world and the citizens of the world are waiting for this possibility. http://www.palestinebedrockoftheworld. com/why-Iran-should-get-the-bomb-Kenneth-n-waltz/
Wikipedia Jews continue to subvert recent history
“We must realize that our party’s most powerful weapon is racial tensions. By propounding into the consciousness of the dark races that for centuries they have been oppressed by whites, we can mold them to the program of the Communist Party. In America, we will aim for subtle victory. While inflaming the Negro minority against the whites, we will endeavor to instill in the whites a guilt complex for their exploitation of the Negroes. We will aid the Negroes to rise to prominence in every walk of life, in the professions and in the world of sports and entertainment. With this prestige, the Negro will be able to intermarry with the whites and begin a process which will deliver America to our cause.”
The world has put up with Zionist apartheid for too long
Is Israel bringing the US down?
CrossTalk: Farewell Israel? (ft. Norman Finkelstein)
UK Jewish MP: Israel acting like Nazis in Gaza
We cannot accept the world as it is, this means to allow Israel to go around killing as and when they feel like it just because they are fearful for their survival, what utter rubbish and insane thought they have to keep themselves save! Have they not thought if they want to be saved all they got to do is to be fair to the Palestinians and give them a homeland that had been denied to them for all these decades?
Many people around the world are asking the question –“Where is Israel’s conscience???” http://theuglytruth.wordpress.com/2009/01/15/bloodshed-in-gaza-and-beyond-israel’s-national-orgasm/
And as for me, I wonder are the Israelis humans or devils at work because they don’t seem to have souls? http://www.palestinebedrockoftheworld.com/are-the-israelis-human-or-the-devils-at-work-occupation-101/
The world cannot be either silence anymore nor can we be indifference and remain a by-standees because we got to make the world right for future generation if not there is no world left for them.
May Almighty God be with you and your family always? Indira Gandhi and Anwar Sadat including John F Kennedy were killed by their own guide, please take care because we need you to fix our world. http://www.palestinebedrockoftheworld.com/will-israel-assassinate-obama/

Subject: What the Gaza ceasefire shows
Date: Thursday, November 22, 2012, 9:08 AM
By Richard Becker
A ceasefire agreement between the Hamas-led Palestinian government in Gaza and Israel was announced today, Nov. 21, in Cairo by U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Egyptian Foreign Minister Mohammed Kamel Amr.
Clinton made an emergency trip to the Middle East with the aim of brokering a truce, a clear sign of the Obama administration’s fears that the continuation of the brutal Israeli assault on Gaza was endangering U.S. imperialist interests in the region.
Since Israel’s latest intense bombing campaign began last week, Clinton, President Obama, and Republican and Democratic congressional leaders have repeatedly expressed all-out support for the Israeli side, while pointedly ignoring far higher Palestinian casualties.
The House of Representatives “passed” a resolution expressing its “unwavering commitment” to Israel. House Resolution 813 was introduced at 12:04 p.m. on Nov. 16, and declared adopted at 12:05 p.m. the same day!
Since Nov. 14, at least 146 Palestinians have been killed, more than 1,000 wounded, and much of Gaza’s infrastructure and public facilities destroyed by a coordinated air, sea and land-based bombardment. On the Israeli side, there have been five killed and more than 100 wounded.
To hear U.S. officials talk, you would think it was the other way around. But despite their obscenely pro-Israel rhetoric, it was also clear that Washington was fearful that a new Israeli ground invasion of Gaza might provoke rebellions in Egypt, Jordan and other neighboring Arab countries, and possibly lead to a wider war.
Despite the death and destruction inflicted by Israel, and despite the fact that it has no air force, navy, armored units or anti-aircraft defenses, the Palestinian forces have not been defeated. Virtually all news reports from inside Gaza reflect a strong determination to resist among the population.
The terms of the temporary agreement reportedly call for a halt to the fighting, an end to Israeli targeted assassinations of Palestinian leaders, and undefined steps to lift the Israeli blockade that has inflicted massive suffering on the 1.6 million Palestinians in Gaza.
Lifting the blockade is a critical issue for the people of Gaza. Whether there will be any real movement toward ending the blockade remains in doubt, as does the durability of the truce as a whole.
ISRAEL’S BLOCKADE: USING FOOD AS A WEAPON
While Israel withdrew its settlers and bases from Gaza in 2005, it has kept the area surrounded and blockaded ever since. As result, half of all school children are malnourished and two-thirds of infants are anemic. Eighty percent of Gaza’s population are refugees — those driven out of other parts of Palestine by the Zionist military forces in 1948 and their descendants.
After the Hamas party won the January 2006 Palestinian parliamentary election, Israel imposed a complete blockade on Gaza, with the support of the United States, European Union and the client government of Hosni Mubarak in Egypt. That the aim of the blockade was to make the people of Gaza suffer was highlighted by an article in the Israeli newspaper Haaretz the following month. It reported on a meeting of top Israeli government officials where the top advisor to then-Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Dov Weisglass, said: “It’s like an appointment with a dietician. The Palestinians will get a lot thinner but won’t die.” According to the Haaretz report, the assembled officials “rolled with laughter,” at Weislglass’s grotesque “joke.”
THE MYTH OF ISRAEL AS VICTIM
In the 1960s, the Black Panther Party had a saying about racist cops justifying their routine killing and brutalizing of Black people by “masquerading as the victim of an unprovoked attack.” It is a description that perfectly fits Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and his predecessors going back to the creation of the Israeli state in 1948.
In the U.S. corporate media, Israel is invariably depicted as the “victim.” Its brutal and cowardly military assaults are justified as “retaliation,” inferring that Israel’s actions are “self-defense.” Over and over, since the early 1950s, successive Israeli governments have staged provocations to prompt responses that could then be used to justify massive attacks while presenting Israel as the “victim of an unprovoked attack.” The aim has generally been to gain new territory and/or crush any state or movement perceived as a threat to Israeli military domination.
This familiar pattern was repeated in November 2008. The murder of five Palestinian civilians on the day after the 2008 U.S. election broke a ceasefire and set in motion a train of events that led to an all-out assault on Gaza by the Israeli military. A vast array of weaponry, including white phosphorous and depleted uranium munitions, was unleashed on a trapped population. More than 1,400 Palestinians were killed, while Israeli forces had 13 killed -– a ratio of more than 100 to 1.
This time, the fatal shooting of a mentally disabled young man on Nov. 5 and a 12-year-old boy on Nov. 9, both killed by the Israeli army inside Gaza, set off the new round of fighting. Then, on Nov. 14, Israel assassinated a top Hamas leader, Ahmed Al-Jaabari, the very same day that he had been presented with a proposal for a long-term ceasefire by a joint Israeli-Egyptian commission.
These provocations were no doubt approved at the highest level of the Israeli government. The extreme right-wing Netanyahu-Lieberman government desired a new conflict both to further devastate the Palestinian infrastructure in Gaza and to advance their political prospects in the January 2013 Israeli election. That hundreds of Palestinians and some Israelis as well would die in order to achieve these objectives was incidental to the Israeli leaders.
Whether the present ceasefire holds and for how long can’t be known at this point. The only real long-term solution to the crisis is an to end to colonial occupation and real self-determination for the Palestinian people, including the right to return to their homeland.

ISRAELIS LAUNCH MAJOR ASSAULT ON GAZA
Join Protests Nationwide!

After getting the go-ahead from the Obama administration in a meeting at the White House on Monday, Israel has launched another major assault against the Palestinian people in Gaza. Israeli troops have been assembled at the border and are poised to invade Gaza again.
In an act designed to provoke a wider war, missiles from Israel assassinated a top Hamas official and killed and wounded many others as its planes and warships have struck more than 20 targets in an ongoing assault. Reports of the bombardment of Gaza are continuing as bodies, including those of children, are being brought to the hospital and morgue.
The ANSWER Coalition joins with people all over the world to condemn this act of wanton aggression and murder, and has issued the following statement:
“All U.S. aid to Israel should be ended once and for all. The people of the United States stand against the government that speaks in our name and sends $3 billion of our tax dollars every year so that Israel can kill and colonize the people of Palestine. The fact that the Obama administration was briefed on Monday prior to the attack shows that these latest crimes are a joint U.S.-Israeli operation. The Pentagon immediately announced after the first wave of murderous assaults today that Israel was its ‘partner.’ Israel may be a partner of U.S. imperialism as it acts as an extension of Pentagon and CIA power in the Middle East. But it is absolutely not the partner of the people of this country who are horrified by its policy of endless war against the Palestinian people and all the peoples of the region.”
The ANSWER Coalition urges everyone to go into the streets and join and organize a demonstration in your area. Let us know about a protest near you by emailing email@example.com.
