Racism, Dire warning of Israeli strikes on Iran

The recent news of construction of a covert nuclear installation in Iran – Qom, has created a   major blow to the credibility of the American intelligence community, which has continued to undermine Israeli reports of growing concerns of a real nuclear threat. Israel feels it might have to deal with the situation on it’s own.  In other words, to prevent Iran from developing a single bomb (Israel has  a rather intimidating deterrent) we should simply learn to live with more terrorism here.

Speculation: Israeli Strike Against Iran Inevitable and the Americans Will “Recuperate” If An Attack On Iran  occurs”…  Iran’s Islamist leaders THEMSELVES also   have for decades called for Israel to be eliminated from the pages of history, fueling calls by many Israelis for their government to strike and destroy the Iranians’ ability to make nuclear weapons. Israel has for some time warned it is ready to launch preemptive strikes against Iran’s nuclear facilities at any time. With international pressure growing on Iran to freeze its nuclear program, analysts say Israeli leaders are toning down those warnings and giving diplomacy a chance to work.  For months, Israel warned it was ready for an immediate preemptive strike on Iranian targets much like the ones it conducted in the past against Syria, and Iraq under Saddam Hussein.   Israel says all options remain open  meaning that Israel is not in danger of disappearing because it has the means to deal with Iran. 

U.S. Wonders if Iran Is Playing for Time  October 2, 2009  WASHINGTON — President Obama got what he said he wanted when United States negotiators met with their Iranian counterparts this week in Geneva: direct engagement, without preconditions, with Iran. President Obama is trying to walk a fine line between celebrating a possible breakthrough in negotiations with Iran and being wary of the possibility that Tehran may just be playing for time.  But the trick now for Mr. Obama, administration officials concede, will be to avoid getting tripped up. In other words, is the Iranian government serious this time?  The clearest risk is that the Iranians may play for time, as they have often been accused of doing in the past, making promises and encouraging more meetings, while waiting for political currents to change or the closed ranks among the Western allies to break.  After Tehran agreed to send most of its openly declared enriched uranium outside Iran to be turned into fuel, Obama administration officials were clearly walking a fine line on Thursday between celebrating what could be a possible breakthrough in international efforts to rein in Iran’s nuclear ambitions and sounding appropriately skeptical

 WASHINGTON —  “We regret the reports of Israel’s plans to approve additional settlement construction, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said in a statement. “Continued settlement activity is inconsistent with Israel’s   international commitments to the peace proces sunder the Roadmap,” he said, referring to the blueprint for a permanent two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.  “As the president has said before, the United States does not accept the legitimacy of continued settlement expansion and we urge that it stop,”

UN Finds Signs of War Crimes on Both Sides in Gaza New York Times –   A United Nations fact-finding mission investigating the three-week war in Gaza issued a lengthy, scathing report on Tuesday that concluded that both the Israeli military and Palestinian armed groups “committed actions amounting to war crimes, and possibly crimes against humanity.” …

“We are right to question the state of Israel’s actions and I am not anti-Semitic for doing so. I think the religious fundamentalism exhibited by certain Zionist and Orthodox Jewish groups needs to be dealt with in a similar manner to Islamic fundamentalism, I don’t see the distinction between the two, both are equally repulsive. “

*Jews, Israel for a start falsely, to try to get the support of others, even like to use the term anti Semite often, as a false diversion  even for a start,  as  they here supposedly want to say that they alone are not the objects of the hate, racial  attack but so are the others..  Although the term anti-Semitism has wide currency, it is regarded  as a misnomer, falsely now  implying discrimination against all Semites, including all Arabs and other peoples, who now firstly are not the clear targets of anti-Semitism today as it is usually the fact. It is not the past Jewish culture being attacked now too, but rather their presently specific now bad  personal acts, poor values associated with Israel, especially when they the Jews too often and  falsely, undeniably too now, the chosen ones,   tend to think they are now really superior to all other nations too and they can do what they want, for they can do no wrong. Rather this is not so in reality, they the Jews too can be held accountable for their too often now bad acts as well… even against the Palestinians.

God still wants both Jews and Arabs to live in peace.. peace takes both parties real participation too.  

Psalm 133:1  A Song of degrees of David. Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! 2  It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments; 3  As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.

 Not surprising  Calgary has the highest rate of hate-motivated crime in the country, according to a new study released by Statistics Canada.. there racism does exist. And it’s a shame that it does. 
The other four cities were all in Ontario. Calgary is the most racist place in Canada, there is a lot to hate about Calgary I m not surprised. People in Calgary treat colored people like a 2nd class citizen. I don’t know about Ontario, but the conditions here are atrocious. Canadians have this misconception that they are tolerant people I can tell you about Calgarians, majority are racist. Everyone saying “I’ve been here for a million years and have seen no sign of any sort of hate crime!” must walk around with their eyes closed. I never thought so much racism, homophobia and just plain ANGER could exist. It’s really sad .This province has set a selfish pace.. our politicians are self-serving, they have little regard for the less fortunate, and they do little to enhance fairness. We’ve dug ourselves a hole, stuck on narrow-minded politics. It’s no surprise hate crime is up – we teach intolerance when our example is “every man for himself.” Search “The Calgary School” to see how this all spread to a national level – as intolerance is fueled and thrives, it will grow and spread.  This story does not surprise me in the least. As a Calgarian I was always amazed at how common blatant acts of racism, bigotry, and intolerance were – and even more amazed at how apathetic the average Calgarian was to these acts. I think if anything, the more recent diversification of Calgary from places such as the east coast will help to displace the older, narrow-minded baby boomer generation that has dominated and suppressed the culture there for so long. It just adds to the Eastern persona that Calgary is full of red neck hicks and right now, I can’t blame them.  “I liked the comment about attributing the high number of hate crimes in Calgary to new arrivals from the East. I believe this is what psychologists refer to as “deflecting” or projecting one’s own character failings onto others.   If newly arrived Easterners are truly responsible for all the hate crime, then what attracted them to Calgary in the first place?”
In 2006, 92 hate crimes were reported in Calgary — about nine incidents for every 100,000 people in the city, or three times higher than the national average of three per 100,000, said the agency Monday.

“The Criminal Code of Canada says a hate crime is committed to intimidate, harm or terrify not only a person, but an entire group of people to which the victim belongs. The victims are targeted for who they are, not because of anything they have done. Hate crimes involve intimidation, harassment, physical force or threat of physical force against a person, a family or a property.”
Race and ethnicity still top the list of Canada’s most common motivators of hate crimes, according to a Statistics Canada. It is too easy to  slip into racism like everyone else.. It likely has a lot to do with Calgary’s past history and cultural non mixing population make up.. Mormons, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Evangelicals, Mennonites, Germans, Ukrainians.. Calgary’s history includes wild west rustlers.  Most people in Alberta are eastern arrivals for only the natives are the originals.. who mow still wrongfully often are despised too. Vey few Black  or Asian people – Chinese, Korean, Japanese, etc.,  in the first place in Alberta as well.. Most people do not have main relatives, senior parents in Alberta.. and the only part of the town I found was friendly was Calgary NW… Most Calgarian churches are not mixed now as well.. segregated rather.. First RCMP post too. 1/4 of hate crimes in Canada  at least  are directed at Aboriginal people and Calgary is no exception here .. 
Alberta’s  political leaders and police themselves undeniably have to take the main blame too for racism, hate by their own bad examples. 

Most hate crimes committed by strangers in the Police-reported data indicate that hate crime incidents differ from crime in general in that they are more likely to be committed by strangers than by persons known to the victim (The  police itself tend not to report on thmselves still though – they are known to also absue natives Canada wide.. )

Conservative MP apologizes for ‘hurtful’ comments on aboriginal people  Updated: Thursday, June 12, 2008   CBC News  A Conservative MP who on Wednesday told an Ottawa radio station that former residential school students need a stronger work ethic, not more compensation dollars, has apologized for his comments. Pierre Poilievre apologized Thursday for questioning the value of residential school compensation. (CBC)  Pierre Poilievre stood in the House of Commons Thursday to say he was sorry for his remarks, which were made just hours before Prime Minister Stephen Harper delivered a public, formal apology to former students of the native residential school program. “Yesterday on a day when the House and all Canadians were celebrating a new beginning, I made remarks that were hurtful and wrong,” Poilievre said. “I accept responsibility for them and I apologize.” Poilievre had come under heavy criticism for telling CFRA News Talk Radio that he wasn’t sure Canada was “getting value for all of this money” being spent to compensate former students of federally financed residential schools. “My view is that we need to engender the values of hard work and independence and self-reliance. That’s the solution in the long run — more money will not solve it,” Poilievre said.

( Excluding racism againts Canada’s natives and the police themselves ) There were no hate crimes reported in Saguenay, Sherbrooke, Trois-Rivières,( and we know that French seperatists do not hate the english or ethnic minorities in these towns?  dream on) St. Catharines-Niagara and Saskatoon. Relatively low rates were reported in St. John’s, Gatineau, Greater Sudbury, and Thunder Bay.

Ottawa 6.6
London, Ont. 5.9
Toronto 5.5

Calgary was one of five cities that reported data higher than the national average. Both Toronto and Calgary have some of the highest Jewish population as well. Due to relatively low coverage in some provinces, provincial comparisons of police-reported hate crime are limited to Quebec, Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia where virtually 100% of all police services and detachments participated in the hate crime study.. The report is flawed depending on the municipal police reports accuracies too. We tend to know that landlocked towns tend to be more racists over seaport or border, tourist towns.
