.. are told to deceive ...
.. how dare the (ugly!) bastards?
Every time I hear - on a publicly-financed broadcaster, the words "ME-peace process" - or anything related or similar - I get the instant, almost irresistible urge to scream: "Lying bastards!"
How dare they? I mean, they are paid by us, accepting our tax-dough. In a democracy, the electorate *MUST* be fully and accurately informed - else how could we, the (voting) people ever decide on anything? In a democracy, we, the (voting) people are sovereign; both the politicians who solicit our vote and are then subsequently elected by us, and the public servants who take our dough to provide needed public services are working for us, paid by us - and better bloody-well perform - or else.
But some - even a lousy, single one would be one too many - some, like almost all our politicians (there must be a (vanishingly?) few honest ones) and certainly our public broadcasters - do not just do a crook job, but often (once would be one more than enough!) a criminal one. Politicians must represent us, we the people, and public servants must serve us, we the people - and in the case of publicly financed broadcasters, they must tell us the truth, the whole truth - and nothing but the truth. That is exactly why we pay them, and for bloody-well nothing else.

Obama's Bubble of Ignorance
Solving Palestine While Israel Destroys It
By KATHLEEN and BILL CHRISTISON
«To a greater degree than perhaps ever before, Washington today is engulfed in denial about Israel and its stupefying behavior, about its murderous policies toward the Palestinians, about the efforts of Israel and its U.S. defenders to force us to ignore its atrocities. Blinders have always been part of the attire of U.S. policymakers and politicians with regard to Israel and Israeli actions, but in the wake of the three-week Israeli assault that laid waste to the tiny territory of Gaza -- an assault ended very conveniently just before Barack Obama was inaugurated, so that he has been able to act as though it never occurred -- the perspective from which Washington operates is strikingly more blinkered than ever in the past.»
(Yair. Aus is not *exactly* the US, but on the "monkey see, monkey do" principle, Aus is close enough (far too eff'n close!) Despite the fall of Howard and his particularly filthy regime, the so-called 'alternative' government that replaced Howard is extending the Afghanistan war. Boo! Hiss! Getting back on track ...) We can see quite well what's going on in the sadly now mostly ex-Palestine. The Israeli regime, so-called 'democratically' elected - but note that whoever 'wins,' the result is always the same, i.e. 60+ bloody years long now and no (just!) end in sight, whatever 'flavour' regime, all we see is the (obscenely offensive!) IDF slaughtering ever more (hapless, innocent!) Palestinians - whose only 'crime' (such a crime!) is to have been born - in a line stretching back 100s (if not 1000s!) of years - on the land the (filthy, criminal!) Israelis covet.
Why don't some (honest!) lawyers take the lot to court?
I mean, the actual murdering Israelis, their accessory/arms-supplier the US regimes, the apologists and especially the publicly financed broadcasters who spruik such nonsense as "ME-peace process" when what is really going on is mass-murder for land and water - why aren't these lying, murdering criminal bastards brought to justice?
We demand the truth, we demand justice!
(filthy!) lies ...
