In spring 2009, in Calgary, Splitting-the-Sky (STS) tried to arrest George W. Bush for 9/11 and other crimes against humanity – and was himself arrested. STS risked years in prison by using a civil resistance defense: He argued that Bush was a war criminal, and the arrest attempt was justified. After a court case that stretched for over a year, STS got off with a proverbial wrist slap: He was ordered to donate $1,000 to the charity of his choice, which happened to be Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth. (Which turned into another legal wrangle…)
Now STS is back in high gear, leading a campaign vowing to perform a citizen’s arrest of Bush when he and former U.S. President and war criminal Bill Clinton visit Surrey, British Columbia tomorrow – October 20, 2011!
Second hour: Alison Weir of If Americans Knew, one of the best sources for accurate information on the Zionist occupation of Palestine. Her latest article is entitled The Real Story of How Israel Was Created:
To better understand the Palestinian bid for membership in the United Nations, it is important to understand the original 1947 U.N. action on Israel-Palestine.
The common representation of Israel’s birth is that the U.N. created Israel, that the world was in favor of this move, and that the U.S. governmental establishment supported it. All these assumptions are demonstrably incorrect.
In reality, while the U.N. General Assembly recommended the creation of a Jewish state in part of Palestine, that recommendation was non-binding and never implemented by the Security Council.
Second, the General Assembly passed that recommendation only after Israel proponents threatened and bribed numerous countries in order to gain a required two-thirds of votes.
Third, the U.S. administration supported the recommendation out of domestic electoral considerations and took this position over the strenuous objections of the State Department, the CIA, and the Pentagon.
In other words, the Zionist entity is not and never has been a legitimate nation. It is a Western settler-colonial occupation of a Third World country, and like all the other settler-colonial occupations (French Algeria, apartheid South Africa, British Rhodesia, British Kenya, etc. etc.) it is unjust, illegal, and unsustainable.
