Since yesterday evening I can not publish anymore on my blog http://diversmorkhoven.wordpress.com/
We have the same problem with the other blogs.
Some months ago, the Belgian authorities have been blocked all our skynetblogs. All our webpages were removed from Google.
I filed a complaint to the Belgian Ombudsman of Telecommunications and after 3 months the blogs were reopened.
At the same time, a gang of criminals terrorized the daughter and granddaughter of the spokesman of our association (Werkgroep Morkhoven) which is very known for the unveiling of the Zandvoort child pornography case.
The Belgian justice and the justice minister who covered up the Zandvoort case, refused to act. The campaign of terror lasted 4 months and some days ago our spokesman, who is very sick, had to be hospitalized. At the time of the closure, we published many articles on the interests of the American and European arms- and oil industry on the war with Syria..
The blog I need help with is folteringen.wordpress.com.
The military industry is a dominant player in the US economy. Military orders drive America's manufacturing sector. More than one-third of all engineers and scientists in the US are engaged in military-related jobs. Several sections of the country and a number of industrial sectors, particularly shipbuilding and aerospace, are greatly dependent upon military spending or foreign arms sales.
The Department of Defense (DoD), together with the top defense corporations - or what is known as the "military-industrial complex" - controls the largest coordinated bloc of industry in the US.
In 2001, after taking into account the emergency anti-terror funding and supplemental appropriations to finance the war in Afghanistan, the Pentagon's budget amounted to some $375 billion. In addition to the rising annual Defense budget, military spending also eats up much of the budgets of the Department of Energy and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. At present, it consumes about 55% of the federal government's discretionary expenditures. Roughly 75% of federal research and development expenditure is devoted to military projects.
The top aerospace and defense corporations, consisting of 11 companies, employ 901,258 people.
Our Wordpress blogs are actually blocked.
Some months ago, all the skynetblogs with articles about Syria and the interests of the western weapons and oil industry were blocked. Google deleted them from the internet.
Syria, Venezuela to unify stances in face of international terrorism
July 2, 2013
Speaker of the People's Assembly Mohammad Jihad al-Laham said that the Syrians are determined to defeat the Zionist, imperialist projects aiming at targeting Syria sovereignty and unity.
"It is very important to unify the stances of Syria and Venezuela at the international circles to face the international terrorism and support the just issues of peoples," al-Laham said during a meeting with Venezuelan National Assembly Member Saul Ortega.
He referred to the importance of getting acquaintance with what is really going on in Syria and covey a true image of the events to the Venezuelan friendly people.
"The Syrian people are struggling against the powers of international imperialism in order to preserve Syria sovereignty and independence as the victory of Syria is an important matter to Venezuela," Ortega said.
In a similar meeting with Ortega, Deputy Foreign and Expatriates Minister, Fayssal Mekdad, stressed on Tuesday the importance of popular and parliamentarian diplomacy in communicating among peoples and the role of parliamentarians in conveying the true image through direct communication with their peoples.
For his part, MP Otega stressed Venezuela's support to Syria, hailing its steadfastness in face of the pressure facing it.
He expressed confidence that Syria will eventually win against the conspiracies targeting the region.
Otega lauded the unity of the Syrian people in face of the western conspiracy which aims at subjugating Syria and facilitating the U.S.-Israeli hegemony on the region.
Macbeth, like many of today's leaders, is gripped by fear. Fear of failure, fear of losing power, fear of his wife, fear of retribution, fear of just about anything. Fear is a very powerful motivator - it keeps us safe when riding our bikes, it keeps us wary when walking late at night. But fear may also paralyse us: from moving forward, from taking a healthy risk, from making a change in our life. Fear is one of the first emotions we learn to express.

RAMALLAH, June 26, 2013 (WAFA) – Marking the International Day in Support of Victims of Torture, a Palestinian human rights group said Wednesday that since the Israeli occupation in 1967, a total of 73 Palestinian detainees have died from torture at the hands of their Israeli interrogators.
Arafat Jaradat, 30, who died on February 23 while under Israeli interrogation only one week after his arrest, was the most recent example of a torture victim, said Addameer, a prisoner support organization.
It said that a Palestinian detainee “is often subjected to some form of cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment, whether physical or psychological, and ranging in extremity.”
The human rights group said the forms of torture and ill treatment employed against Palestinian prisoners include the following: beatings, tying prisoners in “stress positions”, interrogation sessions that last up to 12 consecutive hours, depriving prisoners of sleep and other sensory deprivation, isolation and solitary confinement, and threats against the lives of their relatives.
It said confessions extracted through such practices are admissible in court.
“These practices are in direct contravention of international law, including the United Nations Convention against Torture (CAT), ratified by Israel on 3 October 1991, which requires any State Party to prevent the use of torture and associated practices,” it said.
According to research by the Public Committee Against Torture in Israel, all 700 complaints of torture made against Israeli interrogators in the past 10 years were closed without any criminal investigation, said Addameer.
“On this day commemorating victims of torture, it is imperative that attention is drawn to the plight of the almost 5,000 Palestinian political prisoners, and the systematic torture which they are subjected to,” it said.
It called on Ban Ki-moon, secretary general of the United Nations, “to immediately form an investigation committee to investigate the situation of all Palestinian political prisoners, in particular the systematic use of torture they are subjected to by the Israeli security services and the Israeli prison service.”

U.S., Israel and U.N. made a deal for the creation of a Greater Israel
1) On November 15, 2010, U.S. President Barack Obama praised Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for urging his cabinet to accept a U.S. proposal to extend a freeze on West Bank settlement building for 90 days. Under the plan, Washington would block UN resolutions critical of Israel, and supply Israel with fighter jets worth $3 billion. The US gov...ernment also promisedIsrael that after the 90-day moratorium, they would not seek an extension, and settlement construction in the West Bank and East Jerusalem (all of which is illegal under international law) could continue unabated.
2) In February 2011, more than 100 nations voted for a U.N. resolution that would have condemned illegal Israeli settlements and halted any new construction. The United States vetoed it.
3) On February 19, 2011, Israel said it was deeply grateful to the United States after it vetoed a United Nations resolution put forward by the Palestinian leadership condemning Israeli settlement activity.
4) On October 2011, Israeli jets bomb Gaza Strip - Israeli jetfighters engage in aerial bombing of the Palestinian city of Khan Yunes in the Gaza Strip.
5) On December 4th, 2012, Israel announced that it would move ahead on plans to build 3,000 settler homes in the West Bank and east Jerusalem on territory the Palestinians claim as theirs 'to punish the Palestinians for winning U.N. recognition'.
6) On May 29, 2013, Israel said it was 'ready to reengage with UN Human Rights Council but only if fair play and international standards are applied'.
Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Ze’ev Elkin: 'Such a move would occur only if the body could guarantee that the Jewish state would receive fair treatment in the future'...
"I went to downtown Louisville to a five-and-dime store that had a soda fountain. I sat down at the counter to order a burger and soda pop. The waitress looked at me.... 'Sorry, we don't serve coloreds,' she said. I was furious. I went all the way to Italy to represent my country, won a gold medal, and now I come back to America and can't even get served at a five-and-dime store. I went to a bridge, tore the medal off my neck and threw it into the river. That gold medal didn't mean a thing to me if my black brothers and sisters were treated wrong in a country I was supposed to represent."

"I was coming down Times Square once and there was a wave of people — must have been three, four thousand people raging down the street.
I was walking and I’m all, Wow. What was that? And it was Ali. And he was on foot. And this wave of people going up Eighth Avenue. It was amazing."

Iranian Foreign Minister, Ali Akbar Salehi, stressed during a meeting with new Emir of Qatar, Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani, the necessity of preserving the national sovereignty and territorial integrity of Syria to provide suitable conditions to emerge from the current crisis and move towards the Syrian-Syrian political dialogue.
Salehi, who is visiting Qatar heading a political delegation, explained the Iranian policy towards Syria and the importance of consolidating security and stability in the Gulf region, stressing the necessity of upgrading regional cooperation.
The Qatari Emir described Iran as an influential country in the region, stressing the importance of making use of Iran's capacities to resolve and settle regional problems.
Iran's Chief of Staff: U.S.-Western calculations about Syria have all failed
Iranian Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces Major-General, Hassan Fairouz Abadi, stressed that the calculations of the US and the West have failed in Syria and victory is now in the hands of the resistance in the region.
In a speech, Fairouz Abadi slammed the behavior of some countries which support terrorists in Syria with weapons, saying "The west must know well that the balance of power on the ground does not change by the flow of weapons to al-Qaeda and its allies in Syria."
He added that the West and the Zionists have lost the lead as sending weapons to the terrorists in Syria is no more feasible and does not help them carry out their schemes.
Kerry: Political solution to Syria crisis only way out
US Secretary of State, John Kerry said that the political solution to the crisis in Syria is the only way out.
Kerry, who concluded a visit to the occupied Palestinian lands, said in a press conference on Sunday ''I am looking forward to talks with the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, because the situation in Syria is dangerous, and part of the talks will focus on how to ramp up efforts to have a bearing on the events.''
Kerry affirmed that peaceful solution is the only way to save Syria, stressing that there is no military solution to the crisis.
Washington is sending contradictory signals on Syria as Kerry's statements emphasize the importance of political solution while the US announced that it will provide military aid to the armed terrorist groups in Syria.
Israel used White Phosphorous rounds against Southern Lebanon in 2006.
On January 3, 2009, the Israel artillery was shelling the people of Northern Gaza with White Phosphorous rounds.
They are indiscriminate killers, as that the gas released from the explosion, burns exposed flesh, and the lungs of the victims, whichever way the wind blows.
Israel's 'chemical weapons campaign' against Syria, as a justification for providing direct U.S. military aid to the so called 'Free Syrian Army'.
