Israeli occupation of the Golan Heights
The Golan Heights is a strategic plateau and mountainous region in southwestern Syria. Two-thirds of the area is currently occupied by Israel. It comprises 1,850 square kilometres (714 sq mi) and includes mountains reaching an altitude of 2,880 metres (9,449 ft) above sea level.
The heights dominate the plains below. The Jordan River, Lake Tiberias and the Hula Valley border the region on the west. To the east is the Raqqad Valley and the south is Yarmok River and valley. The northern boundary of the region is the mountain Jabal al-Sheikh (Mount Hermon), one of the highest in Southwest Asia.
An agreement to establish a demilitarized zone between Israel and Syria was signed on 20 July 1949, but border clashes continued. Israel captured the Golan Heights from Syria in the 1967 Six-Day War. Between 80,000 and 109,000 of the inhabitants fled, mostly Druze and Circassians.
In 1973, Syria tried to regain control of the Golan Heights in a surprise attack on Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the Jewish year. Despite initial Syrian advances and heavy Israeli losses, the Golan Heights remained in Israeli hands after a successful Israeli counter attack.
Syria and Israel signed an armistice agreement in 1974, and a United Nations observer force was stationed there. Israel unilaterally annexed the Golan Heights in 1981, although the Syrian government continues to demand the return of this territory, possibly in the context of a peace treaty. In 1982, Druze in the Golan Heights started a strike against the annexation of the territory. The strike lasted for six months and as a result the Israeli army sealed off Druze villages, allowing only those who wished to work in Israel to leave. Israel has given the Druze citizens in the Golan Heights an Israeli citizenship after the annexation of the Golan Heights.
After the Six-Day War, a population of 20,000 Syrians remained in the Golan Heights, most of them Druze. Since 2005, Israel has allowed Druze apple farmers in the Golan to sell their produce to Syria. In 2006, the export total reached 8,000 tons of apples. Syrian residents of the Golan are also permitted to study at universities in Syria, where they are entitled to free tuition, books and lodging.
John McCain, Obama's Bitch
Hi ! My name is John McCain, Sarah Palin is my bitch (but I'm the bottom.)
I've been on TV to convince you to look the other way and keep your mouth shut when
we call in air strikes on Syria, and to confuse the fuck out of you about Al Qada.
Al Qada is a CIA militia but we want you to belive that they are our enemy. Thats why we blamed them for 9/11 but obviously since Al Qada are really CIA militia, we conspired to destroy the Twin Towers and part of the Pentagon to destroy evidence of our illicite activities and provide an excuse to the public to send an invasion force to the middle east so that we can sieze more oil
and take away your constitutional rights at the same time.
Israel is our non-Muslim foothold where all of the oil is, and we hate Muslims because they have seen the evil a corrupt capitolist system is capable of for more than 60 years. The people of Syria have suffered some of the worst human rights abuses at the hand of their own government for years and they have revolted against their government and calling for human rights. Al Qada has come to their aid and are fighting government troops in the street side by side with the Syrian people.
Now I want to call in air strikes against the Syrian government on the same side as Al Qada
(who we have already told you are our enemy.)
Are you sufficiently confused or do you finally understand what Muslims have known for far too long now? I want you to look into my cold dead eyes when I appear on TV and be so sufficiently confused that you decide that it is easier to ignore it all and go shopping at Wal-Mart, watch American Idol, bounce a rubber ball around or pay to watch someone else do it, take all the drugs advertised on TV, and buy a new car instead.
I want you to forget or never learn of all the covert wars that the CIA has been involved in: Vietnam, Korea, Cuba, San Salvador, Angola, Nicaragua, Greneda, and in Guatamala suppressing the Sandanista's with the CIA backed Contras because the Sandanistas were fighting for Healthcare, education, and gender equality. All of these places were either socialist, communist, muslim,
or anything but white christian capitolists .... (sound familiar?)
I hope not, I need you to keep believing us because we are in a big hurry to make even more money so just throw up your arms in exasperation and submission so we can get on with our work,and when printing more money to finance more war causes inflation which makes you poorer, and when you give up more rights and freedoms in order to make our oligarchy more secure,
don't worry, we will just blame it on Al Qada.
Your BFF (until I retire) John.
Glenn (the N ) Beck
Rush (Limpy) Limbaugh
Bill (Brown Nose) O'Reilly
Guess what guys ! The american people don't believe your shit any more.
Now when you come on TV and tell us why you do what you do,
we all know that you are lying.
Every word out of your mouths incriminates yourselves even deeper.
You have become vain adj. 1. having no real value; worthless 2. without effect; futile
3. having an excessively high regard for one's self, looks, etc; conceited -in vain
1. fruitlessly 2. profanely -vainly adv.
Your time is done. You dig your own grave with every word.
As I write this I am listening to president Obama's live TV speech March 6, 2012 about Israel, Syria, oil prices, so called U.S. security interests in other countries, green energy, and womens reproductive rights in regards to Rush Limbaughs demeaning comments about women.
True to his oligarchical self, he turned the womens issue into an economic issue,
and claimed that we must isolate other countries economically and politically.
His lies are transparent and his forked tail is showing.
