Jordan police recover bodies of two Asian women

Posted on Updated on


I know the following is a cut and paste job from ‘AFP’ but it’s scary thought that this horrific act has happened in Amman, Jordan. It’s not something that I have heard of in the past two years or so that I had been in Jordan. I really hope this does not become the normal way of dealing with problems, as it has become in some other parts of the world.

AMMAN — Jordanian police said on Saturday that they had recovered the bodies of two Asian women which had been dumped in plastic bags in a public waste bin north of the capital.

“Police recovered the bodies of two young women of Asian appearance from a public waste bin in the Jubeiha district, north of Amman, on Friday,” police spokesman Mohammad Khatib said.

A member of the public had spotted the bodies in sealed plastic waste sacks and alerted police, Khatib said, adding that the nationalities of the two women remained unclear but they had probably been working as maids.

Initial examination suggested that both women had been strangled.

Some 70,000 migrant labourers work as domestic servants in Jordan, the great majority of them women.

Some 30,000 come from Indonesia, 15,000 from the Philippines and 25,000 from Sri Lanka, according to labour ministry figures.

Zionists have MURDERED at least 225 innocent people in Gaza

American F-16's used by Zionists wreak havoc in Gaza

Israel decides to bombard the Gaza Strip with the help of its American supplied F-16 bombers. At least 225 innocent people were murdered by the Zionists occupiers, mostly if not all were policemen, women and children. Over 700 are also reported to be injured by the air strikes.

Israeli PM Ehud Olmert has said that the operation “may take some time” and “It’s not going to last a few days,”. Mr Olmert continued to argue that “You – the citizens of Gaza – are not our enemies. Hamas, Jihad and the other terrorist organisations are your enemies, as they are our enemies…”They have brought disaster on you and they try to bring disaster to the people of Israel. And it is our common goal to make every possible effort to stop them.”

What ever the differences with the group of Hamas, it was and is an elected group that was chosen from its citizens. The only disaster that the people have witnessed is from the Zionist occupiers and this attack today is a testament to that aggression.

Further reports suggest that the Israelis’ actually demand a harsher response towards the Palestinian people. This sentiment in Israel has produced further support for the Beiteinu Party which takes a hard-line approach on Gaza.

Will the World condemn the attacks by the Zionsist occupiers? Will the World denounce support for Israel for murdering civilians in such a manner?

NO, the world will listen, watch and go back to sleep again whilst the aggressors continue to cause havoc in the region. The West who claims to be the beacon of justice and equality has and continues to stay silent over this and other atrocities committed by their friend Israel. Will the world condemn and boycott America for support and harboring a terrorist state?

I guess not, same as always.

It’s a sad state of affairs.

Bashir warning on Darfur charges

Posted on


Sudan’s President Omar Hassan al-Bashir has said attempts to indict him for war crimes could derail peace efforts in the Sudanese region of Darfur.

Prosecution by the International Criminal Court (ICC) could also have a “catastrophic impact” on regional stability, he said.

The ICC is trying to indict Mr Bashir over attacks in war-torn Darfur.

Sudan has rejected the allegations, and African nations have urged the UN to block any prosecution.

But ICC Chief Prosecutor Luis Moreno Ocampo, who asked judges to issue an arrest warrant against Mr Bashir in July, said last week that he will continue to push for charges.

He said he had evidence that Mr Bashir was controlling attacks against civilians in Darfur.

Local people had been raped and killed by both the Sudanese army and Janjaweed pro-government militias, he said.

The ICC is expected to rule on how to proceed before the end of this year.

‘Negative signal’

The Darfur rebellion began in 2003 when mostly non-Arab groups took up arms against the Arab-dominated government in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, accusing it of discrimination.

Up to 300,000 people have been killed and as many as 2.5 million have been forced from their homes.

Mr Bashir’s government has denied mobilising the Janjaweed militias, accused of widespread atrocities against Darfur’s black African population, and on Thursday he said any prosecution could derail peace efforts.

“It impedes the Darfur peace talks by sending negative signals to Darfur rebel movements to distance themselves from the negotiating table,” he said during a diplomatic summit in Accra, Ghana.

“It also threatens the democratic transformation in Sudan where political parties have braced themselves for elections next year, and will have a catastrophic impact on stability in the entire region,” he said.

But he added: “In spite of all this I wish to affirm our commitment to implement the peace agreements and settle the Darfur conflict through negotiations.”

————————————————————————————–

I have always maintained that ‘two wrongs do not make a right’.  On the one hand the West accuses Sudan’s President Omar Hassan al-Bashir of war crimes but on the other hand fails to even speak of indictment of US President George W Bush and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, who both authorised an illegal war in Iraq, without the approval of the UN and any concrete prove that Iraq had violated any international law that warranted an illegal occupation of another country.

As a result according to the “Iraq Body Count” almost a million Iraqi civilians have died since 2003. We have not even added the millions already killed due to the sanctions imposed by the West on Iraq after the first Gulf War. As General Tommy Franks of the US Army declared “We don’t do body counts“.

The US does not do body counts because they know the West is above the law they proclaim to uphold. There is only one law that the West upholds and that is the law of ‘Self-Interest’.
