Être Richard Martineau

1- Prendre la position du pouvoir (le vrai pouvoir, pas le premier ministre du Québec ou le maire de Granby)

2- Citer un courriel l'accusant d'être anti-Israëlien et anti-Américain

3- Soupirer que "c'est donc dur d'être objectif"

4- Répéter

Et pour me répéter moi-même, Chomsky, Chomsky, Chomsky, a.k.a la C.I.A. de la dissidence:

A broader analysis is suggested by retired colonel Pat Lang, former head of the Middle East and terrorism desk at the Pentagon's Defense Intelligence Agency: "This is basically tribal warfare. If you have someone who's hostile to you and you're unwilling to accept a temporary truce, as Hamas offered, then you have to destroy them. The Israeli response is so disproportionate to the abduction of the three men it appears it's a rather clever excuse designed to appeal both to their public and to the U.S."

Speculation about motives and conflicting factors should not blind us to the tragedy that is unfolding. Lebanon is being destroyed, Israel's Gaza prison is suffering still more savage blows, and on the West Bank, mostly out of sight, the United States and Israel are consummating their project of the murder of a nation, a grim and rare event in history.

Confrontation with Hamas and Hezbollah, Noam Chomsky, 29 juillet 2006

Vous vaincrez

So what's really going on? After just days on the ground inside Lebanon, the IDF is finding the going very rough. It's already admitted to taking significant losses with dozens of its soldiers killed and hundreds more injured in intense fighting with a determined and resilient Hezbollah force as committed now to expelling an invading Israeli force as it was in the 1980s and 1990s when it succeeded in doing it. Clearly the IDF is struggling and taking more losses than it's willing to continue sustaining. So it wants instead to have a proxy army it can control come into South Lebanon, again act as its enforcers, engage Hezbollah in confrontation if necessary and have it do its killing and dying for it. Will Hezbollah and the people of South Lebanon now allow it in when they were unwilling to accept their SLA (Christian South Lebanon Army) and UNIFIL (UN Interim Force in Lebanon) occupiers in the past? Not a chance, Israel and the US know it, and yet both countries are going through the charade of trying to convince the world, the Lebanese people throughout the country, and its government that they will. Once the fighting ends, the IDF likely will withdraw and an occupying force acceptable to Israel will move in to serve in its place. It will be as unwelcome as the others that preceded it and eventually it will be driven out. But before it is, many more will die and suffer, and the long struggle of the Lebanese people and Palestinians as well in the Occupied Territories will go on unresolved.

US - Israeli UN Resolution Hypocrisy, Stephen Lendman, 31 juillet 2006

[Hezbollah] was born out of the Israeli invasion of Lebanon in 1982 and the oppressive occupation that followed. Hezbollah was formed to resist the occupation, expel the Israelis, and it remained an effective opposition force to Israel ever since. It's major base of support is in the Southern Lebanon Shiite region and Northern Beka'a valley it controls that's up to one-third of the population. It's also likely supported by the estimated 400,000 Palestinian refugees in the country who live in overcrowded camps, struggle to achieve their basic needs, have no legal rights, and get no government aid or protection. Hezbollah is also a major political force and is represented by 11 lawmakers in the Lebanese Parliament and has two government ministers in the country's cabinet. But it also maintains a military wing as a needed deterrent to Israeli oppression that up to now has been the only effective force against it in the region. [...]

Throughout Israel's occupation of Southern Lebanon in 1980s and 90s that price was severe indeed, but Hezbollah's committed resistance nonetheless finally succeeded in getting the IDF to withdraw from the country in May, 2000. After 22 years of failing to subdue a resilient South Lebanon, it's hard to believe Israel is once again willing to try and in so doing inflict mass death, suffering and destruction on the innocent people throughout this country that are no match for the IDF militarily in a head-on confrontation. But it goes unreported and undiscussed in the mainstream that if Israel really wanted to end retaliatory attacks against its territory and people, the easy sure way to do it is to stop provoking the Palestinians and Hezbollah by attacking them first.

Québécois et Canadiens ont des perceptions opposées sur les raids israéliens

Presse Canadienne mardi 25 juillet 2006


Un nouveau sondage démontre que les Québécois et les autres Canadiens ont des perceptions complètement opposées de l’offensive d’Israël en territoire libanais.

Une enquête menée sur Internet par Ipsos Reid pour le compte de CanWest News et du réseau Global révèle que 64 pour cent des Canadiens sont d’avis que les raids d’Israël sont au moins en partie justifiés, alors 57 pour cent des Québécois croient qu’ils ne sont pas du tout justifiés.

Quant à savoir qui devrait faire des compromis, 63 pour cent des Canadiens répondent le Hezbollah, tandis que 53 pour cent des Québécois optent pour Israël. En Colombie-Britannique, pas moins de 78 pour cent des répondants croient que c’est au Hezbollah qu’il revient de mettre de l’eau dans son vin.

Le sondage a été réalisé le 20 juillet auprès de 1023 internautes. Sa marge d’erreur est de plus ou moins 3,1 pour cent, 19 fois sur 20

Living in on Kibbutz Grofit in southern Israel at the time, I happened to become close with the family of then-Major General Moshe Ya'alon, at the time the chief of Israeli military intelligence (he would later be appointed chief of staff, to be replaced last year by the current chief of staff, Dan Halutz). The general would come home most Friday nights to spend some time with his family before departing the following day for headquarters. During these visits we spoke repeatedly about political and military matters, and in the midst of the 1996 bombing campaign I asked him why, despite Israel's stated goal of crippling Hezbollah, the IDF avoided hitting its top leadership, going so far as to strike Hezbollah offices on the fourth floor of a Beirut high-rise at 7 AM, when the Israelis knew the offices would be empty. He replied that on previous occasions when Israel had struck serious blows at Hezbollah- a 1992 aerial attack on a training camp in which dozens of guerillas were killed, and the 1994 assassination of commander Sheikh Abbas Musawi by Israeli helicopters- Hezbollah had retaliated with strikes against Israeli and Jewish targets abroad. These were the 1992 bombing of the Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires, killing over thirty, and the 1994 bombing of the Buenos Aires Jewish community centre, in which 85 were killed. Both these bombings, the general told me, were assisted by the Iranian secret services. Escalation against Hezbollah, Israel had learned, could carry a terrible price.

Thus evolved the Israeli strategy of holding the Lebanese government- and by extension, Syria- accountable for Hezbollah attacks by bombing Lebanese civilian infrastructure, a form of collective punishment on a grand scale that forces all Lebanese to suffer for Hezbollah's actions.


Even when Israel has devoted considerable military resources to hunting Hezbollah operatives by air throughout Lebanon, as it eventually did in 1996, it has not succeeded in substantially reducing the number of rockets fired across the border. The guerillas and their rockets are too numerous, too mobile, and too difficult to detect from the air. Meanwhile, the cost of an Israeli ground assault would be prohibitive, as illustrated last week at the outset of the fighting when an Israeli tank in pursuit of Hezbollah attackers struck a mine, killing five Israeli soldiers. For all its technological sophistication, then, Israel's hands are tied.

Une lettre

The latest chapter of the conflict between Israel and Palestine began when Israeli forces abducted two civilians, a doctor and his brother, from Gaza. An incident scarcely reported anywhere, except in the Turkish press. The following day the Palestinians took an Israeli soldier prisoner - and proposed a negotiated exchange against prisoners taken by the Israelis - there are approximately 10,000 in Israeli jails.

That this "kidnapping" was considered an outrage, whereas the illegal military occupation of the West Bank and the systematic appropriation of its natural resources - most particularly that of water - by the Israeli Defence (!) Forces is considered a regrettable but realistic fact of life, is typical of the double standards repeatedly employed by the West in face of what has befallen the Palestinians, on the land alloted to them by international agreements, during the last seventy years.

Today outrage follows outrage; makeshift missiles cross sophisticated ones. The latter usually find their target situated where the disinherited and crowded poor live, waiting for what was once called Justice. Both categories of missile rip bodies apart horribly - who but field commanders can forget this for a moment?

Each provocation and counter-provocation is contested and preached over. But the subsequent arguments, accusations and vows, all serve as a distraction in order to divert world attention from a long-term military, economic and geographic practice whose political aim is nothing less than the liquidation of the Palestinian nation.

This has to be said loud and clear for the practice, only half declared and often covert, is advancing fast these days, and, in our opinion, it must be unceasingly and eternally recognised for what it is and resisted.

jeudi, juillet 20, 2006


According to the jingoistic Jerusalem Post, the Israeli Prime Minister's Office and the army are delirious at their success in dictating the headlines and tone of foreign news broadcasts.

Ehud Olmert's media adviser, Assif Shariv, told the Post that the international media were interviewing Israeli spokespeople four times as much as spokespeople for the Palestinians and Lebanese. Another government adviser, Gideon Meir, boasted: "We have never had it so good. The hasbara [propaganda] effort is a well-oiled machine."

Harper et Blair au même diapason, radio-canada, 14 juiller 2006

Is "rounding up" Palestinian ministers and scores of legislators the same as having a soldier captured in what has been for long a one-sided Israeli war?

If you are an avid viewer of Fox News or a reader of the New York Times, then Israel is yet to exceed its legitimate legal boundaries: that of a democracy opting to defend its citizens. But only racism can lead to such rationale. Only a racist media portrays the capture of a soldier whose army units have besieged Gazans for years, denying them food and medicine, as a violation of all that is holy. Only a racist media presents the kidnapping of 9,000 Palestinians, now in Israeli jails, as a just outcome of Israel's routine arrests of Palestinian terrorists or potential terrorists. Only racism can play down the Israeli destruction of Gaza's infrastructure, which is justified without question, for such actions are necessary to impede the militants' efforts.


Only racism can completely remove from the current discourse the murder of dozens of Palestinian civilians at the hands of the Israeli Army (90 civilians in seven weeks) as the reason that led to the Palestinian raid on the Israeli Army post and the capture of Shalit, and instead depict the current escalation as if it was entirely the work of the Palestinians, with Israel's slate still clean.

Restituirlo !

Earlier this season in a match that pitted Messina against Inter in Sicily, Messina's star African player Marc Zoro famously picked up the ball and walked off the pitch in protest of the monkey chants rained upon him by Inter supporters.

In a stirring act of solidarity, many of the Inter players immediately showed support for Zoro's actions. But one opponent yelled, "Stop that, Zoro, you're just trying to make a name for yourself." That opponent's name was Marco Materazzi.

[...] in the final act, at the moment of most exquisite tension, it seems racism may have actually emerged from the shadows. I, for one, am damn glad that when it did, it ran smack into Zissou's beautiful head.

We don't know with iron certainty what Materazzi said, but if it turns out to be more of the anti-Black, anti-Muslim, garbage that has infected soccer like a virus, the Italian team should forfeit the cup. They should voluntarily give the greatest trophy of them all back to FIFA as a statement that some things in this world are more important than sports.

Racism will be the death of soccer if things don't change. Italy can set the sport back on course, with one simple, stunning gesture.

Give the damn thing back.

... c'pas une raison pour se faire mal

Ça a commencé sur Atrios, puis The Editors, défié dans sa mâlitude, a canonné 'Kokomo' des Beach Boys. Sadly, No!, toujours l'oeil sur l'herbe du voisin The Editors décide de lancer une attaque frontale, Welsey Willis ("Alanis Morissette. You Are a Rocking Maniac. You Are a Stinking Hyena."). The Editors est décidemment un professionnel: il se moque du choix de Sadly, No!, qui réplique par un trio de baffes: Dio (en show à Montréal, bravo), un live de la toune en serbo-croate, tsé là: 'ma-i-a-i, ma-i-a-a, ma-i-a-a-a, letztregetz la nouvalouvayé', et Billy Ray Cyrus.

Vous croyez la guerre terminée ? Naïfs. The Editors propose Billy Squier, qui nous chante 'Rock me tonight'. Pffff, Sadly, No! lui balance Autograph, 'Turn Up The Radio' en pleine figure, avec Styx, 'Mr. Roboto' en accompagnement, un vidéoclip que même RBO n'aurait pu pariodier: mélange de genres fumeux sur fond de tentative de récit de science-fiction en mode musical, montage galleux, photographie aléatoire, jeu parfaitement inexistant des 'acteurs', avec en prime un Dennis DeYoung qui compose un personnage de débile à la Bruno Landry, mais possédé par un teletubbie alors qu'il est supposé ... enfin je suis pas sûr mais y'a des robots, puis il en est un, et il exécute une chorégraphie, puis se sauve des dits robots avant de leur revenir pour les flatter, puis se sauver a nouveau. Bon choix. En retaliation, The Editors appuie sur le piton 'destruction massive' avec un choix obscur, tellement absurde qu'il commente "Directed by Slobodon Milosovic. And even if that isn’t really true, it really is."

Atrios rumine que l'initiateur a l'obligation immorale de pousser à fond contre The Editors: A Flock of Seagulls, of course, puis Run DMC et Warrent. Ouch. Sadly, No! n'est pas en reste non plus: Stryper fait des dégâts, en brigade avec Mr. T, aux commandes d'un mémorable show de mode musical, circa 1983, acompagné en première ligne par Toto Coelo, 'I Eat Cannibals'.

A partir de là, Atrios prend connaissance des attaques de Sadly, No!, et suivant une logique déconstructiviste propre aux blogofascistes, s'en prend à l'ennemi de son ennemi: 'Super Bowl Shuffle' sème la désolation chez Sadly, No! qui, paniqué, torpille du Michael Bolton, gratiné de 'Da Da Da' du groupe allemand Trio. Mais sa folie annihilatrice voile son jugement et le pousse à l'innommable; ce qui était resté une guerre propre vire à l'armement chimique, voire bactériologique: 'Let The Eagle Soar' par John Ashcroft. Réplique rageuse et sans merci en forme de salve d'Atrios: l'infâme 'Bush Was Right', deuzio une di-version de 'Total Eclipse of the Heart' enchaînée de 'God Bless The USA' interprétée par les fontaines du Bellagio, Las Vegas (si si), et une bombe très sale en finale: 'America, We Stand As One' par un certain Dennis Maladone dans le rôle d'un drapeau U.S. tué par les terroristes de 9-11, si j'ai bien saisi. The Editors jouit de voir ses deux rivaux s'entretuer, et en profite pour porter un douloureuse attaque bicéphale.

Prenant mesure du danger, Sadly, No! commence par une attaque à l'artillerie légère contre Atrios, qui ouvre le chemin à un assaut judokaïen, quatre obus de la même eau que les plus récents d'Atrios, dont 'Thank You America' du "poète" Luca Zanna, et un Ted Nugent bien dégorgé. Il décide de placer la diversion en finale, pour vraiment diverser, et 'Hooked On A Feeling', par David Hasselhoff provoque en effet l'hébétement souhaité. Atrios est-il mortellement atteint, sa réplique est anémique... Sadly, No! s'amuse alors avec Alyssa Milano adolescente, dont le jolissime minois n'est pas suffisant, loin s'en faut, pour nous faire oublier la douleur infligée par son horrible toune et sa toute aussi affreuse coupe de cheveux. Il en profite pour catapulter un vidéo de formation de Wendys Burger en mode rap (si si si) pour contrer le dernier raid de The Editors, qui, menant depuis un moment ses propres deux guerres simultanément, y a aussi inclus la réponse à Atrios, 'Rocket Man' par William Shatner, et c'est bien pire que vous ne le croyez (si si si si). Mais pourquoi s'arrêter en si bon chemin, The Editors doit être mourru, et sa nouvelle fronde en la personne de Carl Lewis dans la peau de Grace Jones jouant les hommes efféminés prouve qu'il n'est pas près du trépas! Sadly, No! avance que rien ne vaut une salade de fruits, légumes, viandes avariées et pâtisseries pour achever l'adversaire.

Et puis. Le feu s'est répandu. Tiny Tim chez Jesus's General qui est contré par ça chez Sadly, No!. Je m'arrête ici pour me donner le temps de courir aux abris en tentant de nettoyer mon territoire proximal par cette conflagration, un classique s'il en est un:

Coudonc j'étais où en avril?

That's where the truth lies, right down here in the gut. Do you know you have more nerve endings in your gut than you have in your head? You can look it up. I know some of you are going to say I did look it up, and thats not true. That's because you looked it up in a book. Next time look it up in your gut. I did. My gut tells me that's how our nervous system works.

Timor oriental

Leur site indique que le East Timor Action Network a été fondé en novembre 1991 pour soutenir l'autodétermination véritable et les droits de l'homme pour le peuple du Timor oriental tels que définis par la déclaration universelle des droits de l'homme, les 1960 résolutions de l'Assemblée générale des Nations Unies concernant la décolonisation, et des résolutions du Conseil de Sécurité et de l'Assemblée Générale concernant le Timor oriental. Leur principal tâche a été de changer la politique étrangère des États-Unis, ce qu'ils ont fait! Il s'agit d'un exemple remarquable d'ONG, non pas une entité parasitaire tels Alternative ou Médecins du Monde (ou est-ce Médecins Sans Frontières...), dont le 'pragmatisme' rime invariablement avec impérialisme, et de grassouillets budgets. On peut se faire une bonne idée de leur travail en visionnant le documentaire Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky and the Media, tourné en 1992.

Publiant hier un article de John Martinkus étayant la thèse d'un coup d'état appuyé de l'extérieur, voici que ZMag relaie l'alerte de ETAN, maintenant le East Timor and Indonesia Action Network/United States, qui appelle la population à signifier à leurs élus l'importance de l'envoi de troupes de l'ONU, dans le contexte où
Le Conseil de Sécurité de l'ONU discutera bientôt de la nature de la prochaine mission de l'ONU pour Timor-Leste (Timor oriental). Suite à des actes de violence et une agitation politique, le premier ministre du Timor oriental a démissionné. Des douzaines de personnes ont été tuées, des maisons ont été brûlées ou pillées à travers la ville, et la majeure partie de la population de la capitale s'est sauvée de leurs maisons. Les raisons de cette instabilité sont nombreuses et complexes, mais la participation de l'ONU demeure cruciale. [...]

ETAN et le gouvernement timorais ont uniformément préconisé une implication plus efficace de l'ONU. Le gouvernement des États-Unis, cependant, a à plusieurs reprises poussé l'ONU à réduire rapidement sa présence depuis 2002, des demandes réitérées récemment par l'ambassadeur des États-Unis à l'ONU, John Bolton.
