UN Votes To Send War Crimes Investigators To Gaza

UN Human Rights Council decides to urgently dispatch experts to probe Israel's killing of Palestinians in Gaza.
By Al Jazeera: The United Nations' top human rights body has voted to send a team of international war crimes investigators to probe the deadly shootings of Gaza protesters by Israeli forces.
A resolution calling on the UN Human Rights Council to "urgently dispatch an independent, international commission of inquiry" was backed on Friday by 29 members.
The members - United States and Australia - voted against and 14 abstained.
Investigators must "investigate all alleged violations and abuses ... in the context of the military assaults on large scale civilian protests that began on 30 March 2018", the approved resolution said. 
The commission of inquiry will be asked to produce a final report next March.

Sergei Skripal Discharged From Hospital After Exposure To "Deadliest Nerve Agent On Planet Earth" Ha!

Just weeks after his daughter was discharged, Sergei Skripal has been released from hospital despite being 'attacked by Russia' using one of the "deadliest nerve agents in the world."
By Tyler Durden: It's a miracle!
Yulia and Sergei Skripal were reportedly in a critical condition for weeks following the attack, at one point, their doctors feared that they would suffer brain damage if they managed to survive.
But, just weeks after his daughter was discharged, Sergei Skripal has been released from hospital despite being 'attacked by Russia' using one of the "deadliest nerve agents in the world" just two months ago.
Doctors gave no details on the condition of Skripal, and his current location is not known at this time.
As a reminder, the Russian double-agent was poisoned in Salisbury alongside his daughter, Yulia, in early March. As RT reports, her recovery was much quicker and she has been out of hospital since last month.

Prof. Jordan Peterson v Sophie “Doughnuts” Walker, Leader Of The Further Extension Of Wimmin’s Privileges Party +

Psychologist, author and professor clashes with Sophie Walker from the Wimmin’s Party over the idea that his views on gender and resulting explosive interview with Channel 4's Cathy Newman has made him a figure of appeal to the alt-right, because apparently C4 thinks that's more important than discussion of the actual issues.

If Israel Were A State

A poem assembled by Gilad Atzmon
If Israel were a State
If Israel were a state (and Jews a people like all other people) it would have deployed policemen at the Gaza border instead of snipers with live ammunition.
If Israel were a state (and Jews a people like all other people) it would invite the indigenous people of Palestine to return to their land.
If Israel were a state (and Jews a people like all other people) it would apologize for making Gaza into the biggest open-air prison known to man.
If Israel were a state (and Jews a people like all other people) it would, by now, live in peace under the sun.
But Israel is a Jewish Ghetto (and Jews are somehow different…)

Palestine Is Still The Issue

By John Pilger: "This film is about the Palestinians and a group of courageous Israelis united in the oldest human struggle, to be free."  John Pilger first made the film 'Palestine Is Still The Issue' in 1977. It told how almost a million Palestinians had been forced off their land in 1948, and again in 1967. Twenty five years later, John Pilger returned to the West Bank of Jordan and Gaza, and to Israel, to ask why the Palestinians, whose right of return was affirmed by the United Nations more than half a century ago, are still caught in a terrible limbo - refugees in their own land, controlled by Israel in the longest military occupation in modern times.
"If we are to speak of the great injustice here, nothing has changed," says Pilger at the start of the film, "What has changed is that the Palestinians have fought back. Stateless and humiliated for so long, they have risen up against Israel’s huge military regime,

Boys And Education: Part Three Shaming Boys While Boring Them To Death

Men Are Good!: Parts one and two have shown us the feminist anti-boy push in our schools. This video looks at how schools are difficult for boys and how they have gotten far worse due to the sexism of feminists. There is a large amount of research that has been done showing how boys are different and unique. Our educational system has kept their hand in the sand and refused to acknowledge such differences much less to teach our boys about these important differences.

I Am Julian Assange

'Soon there will be nobody left to tell these truths.'
By Raúl Ilargi Meijer: Julian Assange appears to be painfully close to being unceremoniously thrown out of the Ecuadorian embassy in London. If that happens, the consequences for journalism, for freedom of speech, and for press freedom, will resound around the world for a very long time. It is very unwise for anyone who values truth and freedom to underestimate the repercussions of this.
In essence, Assange is not different from any journalist working for a major paper or news channel. The difference is he published what they will not because they want to stay in power. The Washington Post today would never do an investigation such as Watergate, and that’s where WikiLeaks came in.
It filled a void left by the media that betrayed their own history and their own field. Betrayed the countless journalists throughout history, and today, who risked their lives and limbs, and far too often lost them, to tell the truth about what powers that be do when they think nobody’s looking or listening.
Julian is not wanted because he’s a spy, or even because he published a number of documents whose publication was inconvenient for certain people. He is wanted because he is so damn smart, which makes him very good and terribly effective at what he does. He’s on a most wanted list not for what he’s already published, but for what he might yet publish in the future.

"Killing Gaza" Captures Culture Of Resistance Against Jewish Onslaught Of Land Theft, Torture And Slow Motion Genocide

Watch the trailer of Killing Gaza above or stream the whole film on demand here.
By Max Blumenthal: Westerners witnessed Israel’s massacre of protesters at the culmination of Gaza’s Great March of Return on 14 May mostly through bytes of imagery transmitted onto flat screens and smartphones.
They saw montages of horse-drawn carts carrying bloodied bodies and zig-zagging through thick clouds of teargas, flashes of young men charging at the high-tech fences and militarized fortifications that hold their lives in a soul-sapping stasis, rescue workers overwhelmed by the sheer number of casualties, and grainy footage of snipers in olive drab hunting their prey with laser range finders and terminating 62 lives with the flick of a trigger.
