http://www.redicecreations.com/article.php?id=19957 Factions of three of the largest governments in the world—the United States of America, the Russian Federation, and the Peoples Republic of China—may be cutting orders to eliminate a man who they see as one of the most dangerous in the world. No, he’s not the world’s most hunted multi-national terrorist, nor even a mad scientist with a new virus that can wipe out humanity. The most dangerous man in the world may be Brazilian physicist Dr. Fran De Aquino. De Aquino [right] hasn’t developed a death ray or obtained secret launch codes to the world’s nuclear missiles. He’s done something potentially much worse: he’s spilled the scientific and technological beans of the greatest secret in the world: the ultimate purpose of HAARP. A brilliant physicist published a revolutionary paper citing 30 other scientific papers that reveal HAARP has incredible powers far beyond what most investigators of the high frequency energy technology suspect. Dr. Fran De Aquino asserts a fully functional HAARP network, activated globally, can not only affect weather and geophysical events, but influence space and gravity…even time itself! Now the network is almost complete with the activation of the newest HAARP facilities at the bottom of the world: the desolate and alien Antarctic. Will the masters of HAARP become the masters of time too? HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) now has installations criss-crossing the world and extends from pole-to-pole. The Antarctic facilities are near completion. De Aquino, whose paper High-power ELF radiation generated by modulated HF heating of the ionosphere can cause earthquakes, cyclones and localized heating [PDF], lifts the veil hiding the HAARP wizards… Read the full report & download pdf here

Palestinian authorities are considering taking legal action against Israel over hundreds of Palestinian children being detained, with some reportedly maltreated.

Editor’s note: indeed, access to the ICC was a significant motivator for the Palestinians as I mentioned in August of 2012. It is also hardly surprising that so many in the U.S. Congress are pushing for closure of the PLO office in Washington, along with further de-funding of UN affiliated entities.

As a result of the United Nations General Assembly voting to upgrade the Palestinians’ diplomatic status to a “non-member observer state,” they now have chance to access UN agencies and the International Criminal Court (ICC).

“We need to use the newly gained state status to take measures against Israel for its crimes, especially the arrest, detention, and abuse of Palestinian children, let alone trying them before military courts,” Eissa Karakea, Palestinian Minister of Detainees’ Affairs told Al Arabiya news channel.

According to a report issued by the Palestinian Ministry of Detainees Affairs, 900 Palestinian children were arrested by Israeli authorities in 2012 – a significant surge from the 700 arrested in 2011. The report suggests that the children are often mistreated during interrogations and beaten in detention.

“Israel is violating the Child Protection Act and all international laws by subjecting children to such traumatic experiences. The Israeli minister of security had actually said earlier that Palestinian children have no immunity,” Karakea said.

Karakea stressed that the international community is aware of the crimes committed against Palestinian children and that several human rights groups are launching campaigns in solidarity with Palestinian children. “But this is not enough. We need to take further steps,” he told Al Arabiya.

Some 177 minors remain in prison as of December 1, according to a monthly report by the Prisoner Support and Human Rights Association.

There are stories that have enormous consequences on the lives of Americans but are regularly under-reported or misrepresented by the mainstream media. Project Censored, the US media watchdog group, has released their annual report examining the shortcomings of reporting in 2012.

The US broke a new record with the 447 drone strikes it launched in the war-torn country in 2012.

It has carried out more drone strikes this year in Afghanistan than it has during its eight-year-long air war in Pakistan, launching the strikes and killing thousands while also reducing its air surveillance.

The US also carried out more strikes in Afghanistan than it did in Pakistan in the past eight years, which is how long the CIA has been conducting such strikes. About 338 drone strikes have been launched in Pakistan.

The data, which was released by the US Air Force, shows that drone strikes have been steadily increasing in Afghanistan, even after former terrorist leader Osama bin Laden was killed in 2011 and the conflict has been winding down.

While there may be no numbers accurately reflecting the number of civilians killed in drone strikes, they are in…

GAZA, (PIC)– Palestinian premier Ismail Haneyya received on Wednesday grand mufti of the Australian continent Sheikh Ibrahim Salem and the delegation of the Turkish Felicity Party.

Earlier this month, Aqeel Abdul Mohsen, 19, was shot in the face for protesting against Bahrain’s government. He was covered in blood, with the lower side of his face blown open, his jaw shattered, and a broken hand hanging awkwardly from his wrist. It’s one of those images that you wish you had never seen, and can never forget.

After more than 10 hours of surgery, and before Mr. Abdul Mohsen regained consciousness, his hospital room was already under guard by the police. Had he been able to speak, he might even have been interrogated before going into surgery. Others have lain bleeding without medical attention while government security agents asked questions like: “Were you participating in a protest? Who else was with you?”

Bahrain, a small island nation off the coast of Saudi Arabia, has been ruled by the Khalifa family for more than 200…
