Charleston Shooting: Black Churches Targeted Because Of Importance To Community

WASHINGTON (AP) — The black church has long been the cornerstone and sanctuary for African-American life. It's also long been a target for racists and white supremacists trying to strike blows against the African-American psyche.

The latest attack came Wednesday in Charleston, South Carolina, when 21-year-old Dylann Storm Roof joined a prayer meeting inside historic Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church and, according to authorities, shot nine people dead, including the pastor, the Rev. Clementa Pinckney, and other ministers.
Why Roof targeted that particular church is not yet known. A friend of the suspect said Roof told him that he felt black people were "taking over the world" and that something needed to be done for the white race.
What is clear is that in the days since the carnage inside one of the nation's oldest black churches, other black churches have begun gathering their faithful to process the tragedy, fortify themselves for the journey toward forgiveness and renew their commitments to the social activism that has made them targets for hate through the ages.

"Notions of freedom, notions of hope, notions of leadership, notions of education, notions of how one creates a strategy to counter a strategy of oppression came out of the black church," said Rex Ellis, associate director for curatorial affairs at the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture.
At historic Metropolitan AME Church in the nation's capital, a multiracial, interfaith crowd gathered Friday to remember the Charleston victims. Metropolitan's pastor, the Rev. William H. Lamar IV, led the public vigil at the church, which was founded in 1838 and is the oldest continuously held black-owned institution in the District of Columbia.

Large photos of each victim were raised during the service. Those in attendance, some wiping away tears, listened intently as the Rev. Tony Lee, a pastor at Community of Hope AME Church in the Maryland suburbs, encouraged his audience not to feel defeated by what happened in Charleston.

"Sometimes, it takes great pain to bring great healing," Lee said. A handful of people rose in jubilation.
The African-American church has been around since at least the late 1700s, providing a place where weary slaves could go for comfort, and fiery abolitionists and civil rights activists could call for change. Emanuel was one of those churches.

Jon Hale, an assistant professor at the College of Charleston, said the AME church through history "symbolizes faith, freedom but also resistance. So under very oppressive conditions, under slavery and then legal segregation ... the AME church permitted a space for African-Americans to practice their faith on their own terms."

Emanuel church was founded after Morris Brown, a free, black shoemaker and a Methodist, walked out of a predominantly white Methodist church in Charleston in 1816, an AME church website states. Another Emanuel founder, Denmark Vesey, led a failed 1822 slave rebellion that drove the church underground.
After Vesey's plot was reported, Vesey was hanged and the church was burned. The church was rebuilt, but in 1834 all black churches were banned and members worshipped "underground" until 1865, when Emanuel AME Church was formally reorganized.

Pinckney, a state senator in addition to Emanuel's pastor, had been outspoken recently over the shooting of Walter Scott, the unarmed black man who was shot and killed by a white police officer in North Charleston, and the killings of African-American men by white police.
That advocacy, said Rev. Anthony Evans of the National Black Church Initiative, could be what drew Roof to Emanuel.

The shooter "wanted to strike a blow at the black community and what better way to do it than gunning down a man of God who also is a public official and also a pastor of a church," Evans said.
During the post-Civil War era, attacks on black churches were common in the South as the Ku Klux Klan rose in power. The attacks accelerated in the 1960s, when black churches were bombed and targeted in shooting sprees because they were organizing hubs for the civil rights movement.

That culminated in the bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama, killing four girls: Addie Mae Collins, Carole Robertson, Denise McNair and Cynthia Wesley. The bombing became a powerful symbol of the depth of racial hatred in the South and helped build momentum for later laws, including the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

Three Ku Klux Klansmen were convicted in the bombing; one remains in prison.
A wave of black church burnings took place across the South in the 1990s. Three white men burned Springhill Freewill Baptist Church and Rocky Point Missionary Baptist Church in Mississippi on April 4, 1993, the 25th anniversary of the 1968 assassination of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.
The men later said they shouted racial epithets as they burned the churches. They pleaded guilty and were sentenced to at least three years in federal prison.

On Nov. 5, 2008, three white men burned down the predominantly black Macedonia Church of God in Christ in Springfield, Massachusetts. All three were sentenced to prison terms that ranged from four years to 14 years.

One of the men told investigators he "was angry that the country was going to have an African-American president and that 'blacks and Puerto Ricans' would now have more rights than whites."

 COMMENT:

If the FBI has been so smart to declare that it is not a political killing than why it could not such racist killing be stopped till now.

Whose fault it is the Police Department or the Intelligence department’s fault  to find out why and for what reasons criminal hate against black by white exits.

 In addition which white families that ignites such killings and why the intelligence department did not dig in to find out the main cause to apportion the responsibilities to the proper authorities to solve the dispute.
By just giving a declaration that it is not a political mater is not enough and does not absolve the responsibilities of the FBI department from not to keep a watch on such matter when the target of such a grave matter was known to for a long time.

 Moreover, such acts of killing by law enforcing agency and the killing of such nature had already become a political matter only in the recent past at different states of the country making the stability of country's law and order at stake.

How does the director of FBI reconcile between these mentioned events. The entire nation holds the NRA to have a big role to play in the matter then how could the incident be taken as a normal killing.
It has many other aspects that engulf the activities of lawmakers and NRA including presidential candidate pleading innocence on behalf of the accused.

Is the Presidential candidate a LAWYER in the case? What link is there with the criminal and him? Does that not make it political to investigate in detail the matter?

Republican Party is full of racists mentioned by the party responsible members. Does the Director have the authority to negate or push aside such self declared facts by the members of the party? To hide the facts officials of the intelligence should be stopped forthwith and complete the criminal investigation impartially to find out the truth.

And submit detail report with findings and recommendation to the government. So that drastic action CAN be taken against the offenders as per law of the land.

Israel PM compares boycott campaign with Nazi brutality
HomeMiddle EastPalestine

http://www.presstv.com/Detail/2015/06/15/415985/Israel-

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says the international boycott campaign against the regime equals the sufferings imposed on the Jews during the Nazi rule in Germany.

"What was done to the Jewish people then is being done to” Israel now, he said on Monday in a meeting with Polish Foreign Minister Grzegorz Schetyna.
The Israeli premier was launching a broadside against the pro-Palestinian Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign.

The campaign is aimed at increasing economic and political pressure on Israel and end the Israeli occupation and colonization of Palestinian lands, besides pursuing respect for the right of return of Palestinian refugees.

The campaign has attracted subscribers worldwide, including some European businesses, which have taken stand against Israel’s illegal settlement activities on the occupied Palestinian land.

A Palestinian girl sits and eats in the rubble of her destroyed home, on August 2, 2014 following an overnight Israeli strike on Gaza City (AFP photo).

“The attacks on the Jews were always preceded by the slander of the Jews,” Netanyahu said of the Nazi era, while commenting on the BDS movement.

"In those days we could do nothing. Today we can speak our mind, hold our ground. We're going to do both," the premier said, adding, "We will continue to resist boycotts, defamations, de-legitimization."

Israel frequently cites the crimes committed against the Jews by the Nazis as a pretext to cover up its own atrocities against the Palestinians.

The BDS campaign hopes to repeat the success of the efforts which brought an end to the Apartheid in South Africa.

Tel Aviv, condemned as a likewise apartheid regime, maintains a defiant stand on the issue of illegal settlements on Palestinian land as it refuses to freeze settlement expansion. More than half a million Israelis live in over 120 illegal settlements built since the 1967 Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and East al-Quds (Jerusalem).

It also denies about 1.7 million people in the Gaza Strip their basic rights, such as freedom of movement, jobs that pay proper wages, and adequate healthcare and education.

COMMENT:

I can vow that entire Israel is not axis of evil but yes many are. To stop AXIS of EVIL the easiest way is to clean the Zionists from the US Congress otherwise these Zionists would accomplish their mission by making Americans their poodles and massacre world peace and tranquility. NETANYAHU is a symbol of " Real "SATAN EBLISH"

BDS: A Legitimate and Moral Response to Israeli Policy

Posted: 06/13/2015 8:58 am EDT Updated: 06/13/2015 9:59 am ED
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/james-zogby/bds-a-legitimate-and-mora_b_7575794.html
The Israeli government response to the "Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions" (BDS) movement has been predictable. Being incapable of engaging in any reasonable form of self-criticism or even self-reflection, Israeli leaders have, instead, turned their wrath on their accusers and their victims.

In recent years, several entities have implemented boycotts or are in the process of considering other punitive actions in an effort to force a change in Israeli behavior in the occupied territories. European governments are moving to require Israel to label products originating in West Bank settlements so as to distinguish them from exports from Israel. Some U.S. churches and pension funds have decided to divest from businesses that support the occupation and settlement enterprises. U.S. and U.K. student groups have been successful in winning votes calling on their institutions to support BDS. And some professional academic groups and renowned scholars and performers have indicated that they will not cooperate with events supporting or hosted by Israeli institutions in the occupied lands.

These actions are not only legitimate expressions of political concern, they are also a profoundly moral response to Israel's behavior. When confronted by: Israel's continued defiance of international law; its theft of Palestinian lands in order to construct Jewish-only settlements and roads; and its daily displays of brutality and humiliation of captive Palestinians -- the desire to disassociate from and refuse to support that behavior is the right thing to do. And when confronted by an international system that has neutered itself, refusing to act decisively to put the brakes on Israeli conduct in the occupied territories, then the response of the BDS movement becomes even more supportable.

In the face of this growing international pressure campaign, the Netanyahu government has gone on the offensive. Speaking this week in Israel, the Prime Minister said:
We are in the midst of a great struggle being waged against the state of Israel, an international campaign to blacken its name... The last thing we should do is bow our heads and ask where we erred, where we went wrong. We did not err, we did not do wrong.

Netanyahu went on to emphasize that what is behind this international campaign is nothing more than anti-Semitism in a new form. Others in his government went further calling the BDS movement "terrorism" or equating it to Nazi efforts to demonize and eliminate the Jewish people.

As an initial response, Israel's legal system has criminalized activities that support BDS. And Israel's allies in Congress have followed suit by introducing language in both the pending trade and U.S. Customs authorization bills that would target countries or businesses that in any way boycott, sanction or divest funds from Israel.
There is, of course, more than a little chutzpah on display here. Israel acts with impunity in seizing Palestinian land, demolishing Palestinian homes and denying basic freedoms to Palestinians. Israel then acts to sanction the Palestinian Authority by refusing to transfer tax revenues that are legally Palestinian funds, and supports U.S. legislation that sanctions and divests from any United Nations entity that recognizes Palestinian national rights. But when confronted with a dose of the same medicine, Netanyahu not only screams "foul," he denounces his adversaries as "anti-Semites" and threatens severe retaliation.

This is nothing more than the perverse reaction of a spoiled child who insists that he not only win every game, but that he must be able to define the rules by which the game is played. And when everybody doesn't agree to his "rules," a name-calling tantrum follows, coupled with threats of retaliation. This is the spoiled child turned bully.
It's an old story. When the United Nations votes 143 to three in favor of a Palestinian position, Israel denounces the world body as a "collection of anti-Semites and third world dictators." The UN, Israel insists, is hopelessly biased and incapable of playing any fair role. Israel's supporters then turn to what is, in fact, the "hopelessly biased" U.S. Congress pressing it to pass one-sided anti-Palestinian or anti-UN legislation. And they do so with no sense of irony.

To be sure, there are some sane voices being heard in Israel, above the din created by the hysterical overreaction. Like the prophets of old, they are calling on the Israeli people to reject the dangerous fallacy behind the Prime Minister's argument. They note that it is not the BDS movement that is blackening Israel's name -- it is the policies of their government that are causing it to become increasing isolated. If anything, they say, the peaceful BDS movement is a response to Palestinian despair and to the world's frustration with the intransigence and acquisitiveness of the Netanyahu government.
In recent weeks, Netanyahu's efforts to demonize the BDS have been joined not only by Congress, but by several state legislatures who are passing anti-BDS bills and now by a collection of pro-Israel billionaires and ultra-right Islamophobic groups who have joined forces to silence the BDS protest movement here in the U.S.. One early tactic they have employed is the creation of an insidious website that posts the bios and pictures of student BDS leaders -- the stated purpose being a warning to prospective employers that these young people are anti-Semites and enemies of Israel.

As a tactic, the resort to BDS is a far better and more productive form of resistance than violence and may be the last best hope of reining in Israel's behavior and salvaging the possibility of creating an independent Palestinian state. It would be a tragedy and a travesty if Israel's bullying tactics were to succeed in silencing the legitimate and moral voices of the BDS movement.
 COMMENT:
So long the bush family the Zionists AND ZIONIST LAWMAKERS and the Israeli supporters are allowed to live in US the huge power ship would undoubtedly sink sooner than latte. Make a note of the comment for future reference that it is the Americans who would be held responsible for allowing the Israelis and its support monkeys to jump on their head to only eat their brain. who is Netanyahu ? He is the Bastard son of NAZI? Any doubt test his DNA and let the World Community of Nations know. Who was Adolf Hitler? He was a Jew but not a bastard like these sons of bitches like NETANYAHU the bastard son of NAZI the ZIONISTS mentioned above.
These terrorists and criminals have grown big under the watch of all the previous presidents and now it has become a real nuisance to the very stability of US with the active support of the Republican Party under the active support of the traitor Bush dynasty once a great friend of the Hail Adolf  Hitler the great and now the Israel Zionist and the mother fucker Zionist lawmakers of US.
The situation rolled down to such a horrible end that the President of US had to threaten Israel of military action against it if it attacks Iran and start war. Netanyahu became emboldened with unimaginable guts to supersede and undo the decision of  the US supreme command. Because of the mother fucker All Zionist Lawmakers in US congress support particularly from Republican Party.  
This now proves both to the saner JEWS and to the World Community of Nation that The great Leader ADOLF HITLER was so right to kick oust these Zionists from GERMANY. But his greatest mistake was that these Most of the Filthy ZIONIST being the cause of Holocaust and kicking oust very cleverly push the SANAR JEWS to the mouth of death while they covertly managed to get out of the country and landed mainly  in US, UK and Palestine and this Hitler could not watch.
This lone Terrorist state of Israel now has become the bone of contention of all major trouble in the world. 
It has become so dangerous that the super powers has to completely isolate it by imposing stringiest sanctions  both economically, and financially  to make it surrender all its nuke armaments, otherwise the very existence of the world would be morbidly at stake.

Suu Kyi’s China trip a symbol of Myanmar power shifts 
Michael Peel, Bangkok and Tom Mitchell, Beijing
http://www.ft.com/intl/cms/s/0/c85f43ee-0e7e-11e5-9ae0-00144feabdc0.html?ftcamp=engage/email/headlines/registereduser/engagementheadlines/crm&utm_source=registereduser&utm_medium=email&utm_term=headlines&utm_campaign=engagementheadlines#axzz3ceVyj1v1

Aung San Suu Kyi’s first trip to Beijing is not quite a historic piece of Nixon-to-China diplomacy. But it is a fresh sign of the former political prisoner’s pragmatic preparations for power — and a symbol of the interests she shares with the Middle Kingdom’s rulers at a rocky point in Sino-Myanmar relations.
Analysts say Wednesday’s visit is an effort by the two parties to show they can do business ahead of likely big gains this year for Ms Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy (NLD) in landmark Myanmar elections billed as cementing the country’s transition from military dictatorship.
Be briefed before breakfast in Asia - our new early-morning round-up of the global stories you need to know
Sign up now
China is a big investor in Myanmar and prizes the access it offers to the Indian Ocean, but tensions have emerged in areas ranging from the suspension of a large Beijing-backed dam project to conflict spillover at the countries’ shared border.
“This trip fills in a blank for both sides,” said Yun Sun, a senior associate at Washington’s Stimson Center think-tank. “If Aung San Suu Kyi were not to visit China, it would leave a spot on her credentials. And if you are China, you want to have at least a superficially good relationship with the potential future kingmaker of Myanmar.”
The Nobel peace laureate will spend five days in China at the invitation of the Communist party. Beijing has yet to confirm reports from Myanmar of talks with President Xi Jinping and Li Keqiang, prime minister. 
Ms Suu Kyi’s long-flagged visit comes months before nationwide elections in Myanmar, the first since the military dictatorship of almost half a century stepped down in favour of a quasi-civilian government in 2011.
The trip comes weeks after Thura Shwe Mann, a former Myanmar junta number three who is now the speaker of parliament’s lower house, met President Xi in Beijing, noted Christian Lewis, an associate at Eurasia Group, the political risk analyst.
“The sequence of visits likely reflects the fact that Beijing sees Shwe Mann as the strongest candidate for Myanmar’s next president, but recognises the rising power and influence of Aung San Suu Kyi and the NLD in legislative politics,” Mr Lewis said.
China’s relations with Myanmar were never better than when Ms Suu Kyi was a prisoner for 15 years in her own home and her then pariah state relied on its northern neighbour for investment and diplomatic support.
But Myanmar’s political opening has brought cooler relations with China, as gratitude for Beijing’s support mixes with anger at perceived abuses of its political and economic dominance.
Public protests led Myanmar’s government to stop work in 2011 on the Chinese — backed Myitsone dam in the north of the country, while villagers in the country’s northwest have faced violent security force crackdowns during years of rallies against the Chinese-operated Letpadaung copper mine.
China [will] want to have at least superficially good relationship with the future kingmaker of Myanmar
- Yun Sun, senior associate at Stimson Center
Tweet this quote
China’s own grievances were highlighted when its military last week launched rare live-ammunition exercises in a border region, close to where the Myanmar army is fighting with rebels on the other side of the frontier. Myanmar’s bombing of rebel positions had earlier spilled into China, killing villagers.
Perhaps the most sensitive aspect of Ms Suu Kyi’s visit is her status in the west as a pro-democracy figurehead of the kind jailed by China. Her fellow Nobel peace laureate, Liu Xiaobo, the only Chinese winner of the honour, is serving an 11-year sentence for “inciting subversion”.
But US and European observers hoping for a ringing critique of Beijing’s policies are likely to be as disappointed as they are in Ms Suu Kyi’s reluctance to speak out for Myanmar’s persecuted Rohingya people.
She has tended to avoid anti-Chinese rhetoric and, unlike many of her fellow Nobel Prize winners, has shied away more generally from condemning alleged human rights abuses around the globe.
“She certainly doesn’t want to be seen as anti-China, and I don’t see anything that suggests she actually is,” said Thant Myint-U, a historian and author who has worked with Myanmar’s government on its peace process to end more than 60 years of civil conflict. “Her concerns have always been very domestic.”
COMMENT:
First trip to Beijing is not quite a historic piece no doubt but for her survival as a viable politician there probably there is no other way than to step out on the visit well understood even being in  horns of dilemma took the risk of hazy future relationship with both West and EU countries. 
 
This country is basically had been long under covert protection of China. Though West and EU countries supported her during her days of suffering has to be accepted that those days are matters of bygone gone days. Both the West and EU has to forget those days and start to assess her moves and politics afresh which would be better and more fruitful than to think she is a politician of a friendly democratic country. 
 
Burmese, are general people racist, liars and highly conservatives and are master in changing sides.  Aung San Suu Kyi’s problem is that she is colored as democratic but has to control a control that remained under dictatorship so it is easier to line up with the similar type of system. West and EU analysts would make mistake to judge MYANMAR like other normal democratic countries. It is reported that it is a undercover making of a a nuke country. this needs to be investigated.
 
 
Having said the above any hard decision be taken after observing the out come of the visit and observance of her visit's impact..

Charleston Shooting: Black Churches Targeted Because Of Importance To Community

Israel PM compares boycott campaign with Nazi brutality

Tel Aviv, condemned as a likewise apartheid regime, maintains a defiant stand on the issue of illegal settlements on Palestinian land as it refuses to freeze settlement expansion. More than half a million Israelis live in over 120 illegal settlements built since the 1967 Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and East al-Quds (Jerusalem).

It also denies about 1.7 million people in the Gaza Strip their basic rights, such as freedom of movement, jobs that pay proper wages, and adequate healthcare and education.

COMMENT:

I can vow that entire Israelis are not axis of evil but yes many are. To stop AXIS of EVIL the easiest way is to clean the Zionists from the US Congress otherwise these Zionists would accomplish their mission by making Americans their poodles and massacre world peace and tranquility. NETANYAHU is a symbol of " Real "SATAN EBLISH" JEB BUSH IS ALREADY A POODLE OF THE ZIONISTS DO"T HAVE TO BELIEVE.
Israel says the boycott campaign it faces equals the suffering imposed on the Jews during the Nazi rule.

BDS: A Legitimate and Moral Response to Israeli Policy

Posted: 06/13/2015 8:58 am EDT Updated: 06/13/2015 9:59 am ED

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/james-zogby/bds-a-legitimate-and-mora_b_7575794.html
 
The Israeli government response to the "Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions" (BDS) movement has been predictable. Being incapable of engaging in any reasonable form of self-criticism or even self-reflection, Israeli leaders have, instead, turned their wrath on their accusers and their victims.
In recent years, several entities have implemented boycotts or are in the process of considering other punitive actions in an effort to force a change in Israeli behavior in the occupied territories. European governments are moving to require Israel to label products originating in West Bank settlements so as to distinguish them from exports from Israel. Some U.S. churches and pension funds have decided to divest from businesses that support the occupation and settlement enterprises. U.S. and U.K. student groups have been successful in winning votes calling on their institutions to support BDS. And some professional academic groups and renowned scholars and performers have indicated that they will not cooperate with events supporting or hosted by Israeli institutions in the occupied lands.

These actions are not only legitimate expressions of political concern, they are also a profoundly moral response to Israel's behavior. When confronted by: Israel's continued defiance of international law; its theft of Palestinian lands in order to construct Jewish-only settlements and roads; and its daily displays of brutality and humiliation of captive Palestinians -- the desire to disassociate from and refuse to support that behavior is the right thing to do. And when confronted by an international system that has neutered itself, refusing to act decisively to put the brakes on Israeli conduct in the occupied territories, then the response of the BDS movement becomes even more supportable.

In the face of this growing international pressure campaign, the Netanyahu government has gone on the offensive. Speaking this week in Israel, the Prime Minister said:

We are in the midst of a great struggle being waged against the state of Israel, an international campaign to blacken its name... The last thing we should do is bow our heads and ask where we erred, where we went wrong. We did not err, we did not do wrong.

Netanyahu went on to emphasize that what is behind this international campaign is nothing more than anti-Semitism in a new form. Others in his government went further calling the BDS movement "terrorism" or equating it to Nazi efforts to demonize and eliminate the Jewish people.

As an initial response, Israel's legal system has criminalized activities that support BDS. And Israel's allies in Congress have followed suit by introducing language in both the pending trade and U.S. Customs authorization bills that would target countries or businesses that in any way boycott, sanction or divest funds from Israel.

There is, of course, more than a little chutzpah on display here. Israel acts with impunity in seizing Palestinian land, demolishing Palestinian homes and denying basic freedoms to Palestinians.

Israel then acts to sanction the Palestinian Authority by refusing to transfer tax revenues that are legally Palestinian funds, and supports U.S. legislation that sanctions and divests from any United Nations entity that recognizes Palestinian national rights. But when confronted with a dose of the same medicine, Netanyahu not only screams "foul," he denounces his adversaries as "anti-Semites" and threatens severe retaliation.

This is nothing more than the perverse reaction of a spoiled child who insists that he not only win every game, but that he must be able to define the rules by which the game is played. And when everybody doesn't agree to his "rules," a name-calling tantrum follows, coupled with threats of retaliation. This is the spoiled child turned bully.

It's an old story. When the United Nations votes 143 to three in favor of a Palestinian position, Israel denounces the world body as a "collection of anti-Semites and third world dictators." The UN, Israel insists, is hopelessly biased and incapable of playing any fair role. Israel's supporters then turn to what is, in fact, the "hopelessly biased" U.S. Congress pressing it to pass one-sided anti-Palestinian or anti-UN legislation. And they do so with no sense of irony.

To be sure, there are some sane voices being heard in Israel, above the din created by the hysterical overreaction. Like the prophets of old, they are calling on the Israeli people to reject the dangerous fallacy behind the Prime Minister's argument. They note that it is not the BDS movement that is blackening Israel's name -- it is the policies of their government that are causing it to become increasing isolated. If anything, they say, the peaceful BDS movement is a response to Palestinian despair and to the world's frustration with the intransigence and acquisitiveness of the Netanyahu government.
In recent weeks, Netanyahu's efforts to demonize the BDS have been joined not only by Congress, but by several state legislatures who are passing anti-BDS bills and now by a collection of pro-Israel billionaires and ultra-right Islamophobic groups who have joined forces to silence the BDS protest movement here in the U.S.. One early tactic they have employed is the creation of an insidious website that posts the bios and pictures of student BDS leaders -- the stated purpose being a warning to prospective employers that these young people are anti-Semites and enemies of Israel.

As a tactic, the resort to BDS is a far better and more productive form of resistance than violence and may be the last best hope of reining in Israel's behavior and salvaging the possibility of creating an independent Palestinian state. It would be a tragedy and a travesty if Israel's bullying tactics were to succeed in silencing the legitimate and moral voices of the BDS movement.

 COMMENT:

So long the bush family the Zionists AND ZIONIST LAWMAKERS and the Israeli supporters are allowed to live in US the huge power ship would undoubtedly sink sooner than latte. Make a note of the comment for future reference that it is the Americans who would be held responsible for allowing the Israelis and its support monkeys to jump on their head to only eat their brain. who is Netanyahu ? He is the Bastard son NAZI? Any doubt tests his DNA and let the World Community of Nations. Who was Adolf Hitler? He was a Jew but not a bastard like these sons of bitches like NETANYAHU the bastard son of NAZI the ZIONISTS mentioned above.

These terrorists and criminals have grown big under the watch of all the previous presidents and now it has become a real nuisance to the very stability of US with the active support of the Republican P{arty under the active support of the traitor Bush dynasty one a great friend of the Hail Adolf  Hitler the great and now the Israel Zionist and the mother fucker Zionist lawmakers of US.

The situation roll down to such a horrible end that the President of US had to threaten Israel of military action against it if it attacks Iran and start war. The Netanyahu became emboldened with unimaginable guts to supersede to undo the decision of  the US supreme command came because of the mother fucker Zionist Lawmakers in US congress particularly from Republican Party.  

This now proves both to the saner JEWS and to the World Community of Nation that The great Leader ADOLF HITLER was so right to kick oust these Zionists from GERMANY. But his greatest mistake was that these Most of the Filthy ZIONIST being the cause of Holocaust and kicking oust very cleverly push the SANAR JEWS to the mouth of death while very they covertly managed to get out of the country and landed mainly  in US, UK and Palestine.

This lone Terrorist state of Israel now has become the bone of contention of all major trouble in the world. It has become so dangerous that the super powers has to completely isolate it by imposing stringiest sanctions  both economically, and financially  to make it surrender all its nuke armaments, otherwise the very existence of the world would be morbidly at stake.

Suu Kyi’s China trip a symbol of Myanmar power shifts

Aung San Suu Kyi’s first trip to Beijing is not quite a historic piece of Nixon-to-China diplomacy. But it is a fresh sign of the former political prisoner’s pragmatic preparations for power — and a symbol of the interests she shares with the Middle Kingdom’s rulers at a rocky point in Sino-Myanmar relations.
Analysts say Wednesday’s visit is an effort by the two parties to show they can do business ahead of likely big gains this year for Ms Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy (NLD) in landmark Myanmar elections billed as cementing the country’s transition from military dictatorship.

China is a big investor in Myanmar and prizes the access it offers to the Indian Ocean, but tensions have emerged in areas ranging from the suspension of a large Beijing-backed dam project to conflict spillover at the countries’ shared border.
“This trip fills in a blank for both sides,” said Yun Sun, a senior associate at Washington’s Stimson Center think-tank. “If Aung San Suu Kyi were not to visit China, it would leave a spot on her credentials. And if you are China, you want to have at least a superficially good relationship with the potential future kingmaker of Myanmar.”
The Nobel peace laureate will spend five days in China at the invitation of the Communist party. Beijing has yet to confirm reports from Myanmar of talks with President Xi Jinping and Li Keqiang, prime minister. 
Ms Suu Kyi’s long-flagged visit comes months before nationwide elections in Myanmar, the first since the military dictatorship of almost half a century stepped down in favour of a quasi-civilian government in 2011.
The trip comes weeks after Thura Shwe Mann, a former Myanmar junta number three who is now the speaker of parliament’s lower house, met President Xi in Beijing, noted Christian Lewis, an associate at Eurasia Group, the political risk analyst.
“The sequence of visits likely reflects the fact that Beijing sees Shwe Mann as the strongest candidate for Myanmar’s next president, but recognises the rising power and influence of Aung San Suu Kyi and the NLD in legislative politics,” Mr Lewis said.
China’s relations with Myanmar were never better than when Ms Suu Kyi was a prisoner for 15 years in her own home and her then pariah state relied on its northern neighbour for investment and diplomatic support.
But Myanmar’s political opening has brought cooler relations with China, as gratitude for Beijing’s support mixes with anger at perceived abuses of its political and economic dominance.
Public protests led Myanmar’s government to stop work in 2011 on the Chinese — backed Myitsone dam in the north of the country, while villagers in the country’s northwest have faced violent security force crackdowns during years of rallies against the Chinese-operated Letpadaung copper mine.
China [will] want to have at least superficially good relationship with the future kingmaker of Myanmar
- Yun Sun, senior associate at Stimson Center

China’s own grievances were highlighted when its military last week launched rare live-ammunition exercises in a border region, close to where the Myanmar army is fighting with rebels on the other side of the frontier. Myanmar’s bombing of rebel positions had earlier spilled into China, killing villagers.
Perhaps the most sensitive aspect of Ms Suu Kyi’s visit is her status in the west as a pro-democracy figurehead of the kind jailed by China. Her fellow Nobel peace laureate, Liu Xiaobo, the only Chinese winner of the honour, is serving an 11-year sentence for “inciting subversion”.
But US and European observers hoping for a ringing critique of Beijing’s policies are likely to be as disappointed as they are in Ms Suu Kyi’s reluctance to speak out for Myanmar’s persecuted Rohingya people.
She has tended to avoid anti-Chinese rhetoric and, unlike many of her fellow Nobel Prize winners, has shied away more generally from condemning alleged human rights abuses around the globe.
“She certainly doesn’t want to be seen as anti-China, and I don’t see anything that suggests she actually is,” said Thant Myint-U, a historian and author who has worked with Myanmar’s government on its peace process to end more than 60 years of civil conflict. “Her concerns have always been very domestic.”
COMMENT:
First trip to Beijing is not quite a historic piece no doubt but for her survival as a viable politician there probably there is no other way than to step out on the visit well understood even being in  horns of dilemma took the risk of hazy future relationship with both West and EU countries. 
 
This country is basically had been long under covert protection of China. Though West and EU countries supported her during her days of suffering has to be accepted that those days are matters of bygone gone days. Both the West and EU has to forget those days and start to assess her moves and politics afresh which would be better and more fruitful than to think she is a politician of a friendly democratic country. 
 
Burmese, are general people racist, liars and highly conservatives and are master in changing sides.  Aung San Suu Kyi’s problem is that she is colored as democratic but has to control a control that remained under dictatorship so it is easier to line up with the similar type of system. West and EU analysts would make mistake to judge MYANMAR like other normal democratic countries. It is reported that it is a undercover making of a a nuke country. this needs to be investigated.
 
Having said the above any hard decision be taken after observing the out come of the visit and observance of her visit's impact..
