Al Akhbar English | December 20, 2012

The Palestinian Authority, newly granted access to the International Criminal Court, vowed Thursday to hold Israel accountable for increased settlement building.

It did not, however, specify how it would seek to punish Israel for the illegal settlements and made no mention of its recently awarded right to refer Israel to the ICC. The PA’s status upgrade at the UN General Assembly allows the entity to exercise a greater range of legal measures, including the power of referral to the ICC.

“Israel will pay for the crime of settlement building on Palestinian territory,” said PA presidential spokesperson Nabil Abu Ridniyyeh, referring to Palestinian lands annexed by Israel in its war with several Arab countries in 1967.

“Not a stone shall remain of…

A prominent UN special Rapporteur says that both the US and UN would lose their credibility if they keep not being serious in defending Palestinians rights against illegal settlements.

Press TV has conducted an interview with Richard Falk, UN special Rapporteur from California to shed more light on the issue at hand.

An analyst says UN condemnations against Israel are meaningless without being followed by a resolution and this is all to distract from what they want to do to Syria. In the background of this, four of the five members of the United Nations Security Council have condemned illegal Israeli settlements building on occupied Palestinian lands, but all it takes is one statement of veto to allow Israel to continue unabated and the United States refuses to condemn Israel’s land grab of Palestine. The United Nations head also condemned Israel’s illegal activities as an action that undermines faith in its willingness to negotiate with Palestinians.

A huge slab of sea floor near the Great Barrier Reef is in the early stages of collapse and could generate a tsunami when it finally breaks off, researchers warned Friday.

Marine geologists from Australia’s James Cook University have been using advanced 3D mapping techniques on the deepest parts of the reef — below diving depth — since 2007 and have discovered dozens of sub-marine canyons.

On a recent trip, they came across the one cubic kilometre slab of sea floor, the remains of an ancient underwater landslide, which is perched on the continental shelf.

“Undersea landslides are a well understood geological process but we didn’t know there were any on the Barrier Reef,” geologist Robin Beaman told AFP.

“We found this one large block that stood out. It is sitting on top of a sub-marine canyon, cutting into the slopes and it is in the preliminary stage of collapse.”

He stressed that no one knew when a collapse may occur, “whether tomorrow or even in our lifetime”, but that people should be aware that it was there.

“It is slowly giving way although it remains stable under …

The Extinction Protocol

December 20, 2012GUATEMALA CITYPacaya Volcano, located 47 kilometers south of the capital, has had increased activity in recent days with ash and gas being released into the air, said the Institute of Volcanology (Insivumeh). On Wednesday, the institute issued a preventive alert and recommended the National Coordinator for Disaster Reduction (Conrad) to keep monitoring the 2,500-meter-tall volcano, located between the departments of Guatemala City and Escuintla. “The activity yesterday [Tuesday] was a manifestation of reactivation, so people should be aware of developments in coming days,” Insivumeh experts said. Conrad also released a statement on its website that recommends people “to keep informed and be aware of official information provided by authorities.” The last eruption of Pacaya occurred in May 2010 when a powerful explosion sent ashes to three departments, including the capital, and forced the closing of La Aurora International Airport for five days.

[ PIC 19/12/2012 – 09:29 PM ]

NAZARETH, (PIC)– The Israeli Supreme Court rejected the objection submitted by Al-Aqsa Foundation for Waqf and Heritage regarding establishing a park in cemetery of Zarnouqa village, depopulated more than six decades ago, in 1948-occupied territories.

Al-Aqsa Foundation described, in a press statement on Tuesday, the court’s decision as biased to the Israeli Rehovot Municipality and as “an official tool contributing to the violation of the sanctity of dead Muslims and the obliteration of their graves, without respecting their religious constants”

The foundation demanded the municipality to immediately stop the works in the cemetery and find other areas to establish its parks and public facilities.

The lawyer for Al-Aqsa Foundation, Mohammed Suleiman, told the Israeli judge, who asked him to explain the reasons behind his opposition to the implementation of the municipality’s scheme, that implementing projects in a Muslim cemetery and on the ruins…

  • The deputy manager of al-Aqsa TV, Mohamed Abou Oun, inspects the car that two al-Aqsa cameraman were riding in when an Israeli missile struck them in Gaza City on November 20, 2012. The Israeli military said that Mahmoud al-Kumi, 29, and Hussam Salama, 30, were “Hamas operatives” but gave no information to support the claim.

Israeli officials have dangerously and unlawfully blurred the distinction between civilians who call for or support military attacks and those who directly participate in attacks.
Sarah Leah Whitson, Middle East director

(Gaza City) – Four Israeli attacks on journalists and media facilities in Gaza during the November 2012 fighting violated the laws of war by targeting civilians and civilian objects that were making no apparent contribution to Palestinian military operations.

Silver Lining

Press TV

A man has been killed by poisonous gas used by Bahraini regime forces in the ongoing anti-regime protests in the Persian Gulf state.

The victim, identified as Bassil al-Qattan, died on Thursday after inhaling tear gas fumes fired during a demonstration against the ruling Al Khalifa dynasty in the capital Manama last week.

His death comes amid excessive use of tear gas and stun grenades by Bahraini security forces as they continue their harsh clampdown on peaceful demonstrators who are calling for democratic reforms in the Arab country.

Locals said they had witnessed extensive use of tear gas, pellet shotguns and sound bombs during the massive ‘Bahrain’s Martyrs Day’ demonstration in Manama on Monday, which caused severe and critical injuries to protesters.

Witnesses also reported that police made at least 25 arrests, including women, during the rally…

The AN/URC-117 Ground Wave Emergency Network | Link 

The Ground-Wave Emergency Network (GWEN) is a communications system that the military is in the process of constructing as we speak. It operates in the very-low-frequency (VLF) range, with transmissions between 150 and 175 kHz. This range was selected because its signals travel by means of waves that have a tendency to hug the ground rather than by radiating into the atmosphere. This signal drops off sharply with distance – a single GWEN stations transmits in a 360 circle to a distance of 250 to 300 miles. The entire GWEN system consists of approximately 300 such stations spread across the United States, each with a tower 300-500 feet high. The stations are from 200 to 250 miles apart, so that a signal can go from coast to…

The 2012 Mayan Prophecy has been readily distorted and misunderstood. The End of the Mayan Calendar on December 21, 2012 has nothing to do with the “End of the World”.

In fact, the Mayan calendar does not end on December 21st, 2012. Rather December 21 marks the beginning of a new “Long Cycle” in the Mayan calendar system. (See Washington’s Blog, End of the World: Hear the 2012 Prophecy … Direct from the Mouths of the Mayan Priests, Global Research, December 13, 2012)

The End of the World concept is a falsehood and misinterpretation of Mayan thought. What is at stake is a renewal, the unfolding of a new era. For the Mayans, December 21, 2012  marks the beginning of a new long cycle (Ibid).

Meanwhile, “End of the World” stories and commentary are plastered on the news tabloids. While…
