[Posted 4 May 2002]
Not content to have
launched an appalling aggression against the Palestinian
people and their National Authority and to have committed
the most revolting massacres known to mankind, Israel has
gone a step further by destroying all hope of peace with
the Arabs. It has killed the Oslo accords when it set up
buffer zones separating it from the Palestinian
territories. Agricultural land in Area A, completely
under Palestinian control, have been confiscated and used
for that purpose. Sharon, it seems, understands the way
the game should be played. And as long as he enjoys the
protection of the US, the world's only super power, he is
likely to pursue his policies of aggression.
The US has often been accused of applying dual standards in dealing with the outside world. In no other case is this more evident than in the Palestinian question. The US Administration lends its support undiminished to Israeli injustices and to the Sharon government. Meanwhile, it stands opposed to the Palestinians in their struggle against Israeli occupation; a struggle, which it prefers to list, unjustly, under terrorism.
The magnitude of the
Israeli crimes, committed against innocent Palestinian
civilians, has rendered the US unable to go against the
consensus of the international community to dispatch a
three-member fact-finding mission to the Palestinian
territories, namely to Jenin, where evidence has it that
around 800 houses were destroyed and 500 people killed.
Nowhere can the
inconsistency of American foreign policy be seen clearer
than in the Middle East. Washington's fudging of regional
tensions, aggravated by Israel's massive and bloody
incursions into the Palestinian self-controlled areas, is
raising questions over the American agenda.
ARTICLES AND COMMENTARIES
On the win in the first
round of the French presidential elections of President
Chirac in first place followed by ultra right-wing leader
Jean-Marie Le Pen, with the Socialist Party's Lionel
Juspin trailing in third place. Juspin is known for a
well-famed statement, when on a visit to Jerusalem, in
which he described the Lebanese resistance against the
Israeli occupation as an act of terror.
At long last, the Arab and
Islamic vote has come to count as influential in the
making of political decisions outside the Arab and
Islamic worlds. An accurate reading into the results of
the French presidential elections are enough to lead to
this conclusion. The shocking defeat of the French left
led by Juspin, while justifying a scare across Europe,
does by no means imply that the extreme right has won a
majority to carry it into the Elysee.

It is quite ironic that US
President George W. Bush should urge the Arab countries,
Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Jordan in particular, to stand
against Middle East terrorism. The irony lies in the fact
that these countries, especially Egypt, have engaged in a
vicious war against terrorist organizations which found a
safe haven in the US and other Western countries.

We need your help. Emperor's Clothes is under attack for telling the truth.
A few days ago our Website hosting service received an email from Charles Russell, the law firm for ITN. ITN is the British TV news station responsible for distributing supposed news photos which falsely portrayed a Serbian refugee center in Bosnia as a death camp. Emperor's Clothes exposed this lie in the video JUDGMENT. http://emperors-clothes.com/Film/judge.htm
In the email, ITN's law firm demanded that all mention of the video, JUDGMENT, be removed from the Emperor's Clothes Website or ITN would sue our service provider for libel. The service provider has, quite bravely, refused to cave in.
Another Website was not so lucky. Www.sprksa-mreza.com is a vast storehouse of information about Yugoslavia. Its editors have contributed articles and shared their knowledge with Emperor's Clothes. Srpska-mreza had posted several articles exposing ITN lies. ITN threatened Srpska-Mreza's Website hosting service as it had threatened ours. In response the hosting service shut down www.Srpska-mreza.com this past weekend.
We are setting up an EMPEROR'S CLOTHES DEFENSE FUND. Hopefully the FUND will get non-profit and tax-exempt status. This FUND will defend Emperor's Clothes, Srpska-Mreza and any other Website or Web hosting service attacked for advertising JUDGMENT and/or standing up to ITN.
We urge everyone who cares about free journalism to fight this attack. Here are some things you can do. A more detailed report will be posted tomorrow.
1) Buy a copy of the JUDGMENT video. See what ITN is trying to suppress. You can read about the video at http://emperors-clothes.com/Film/judge.htm It's $25 in the US, $26 outside. You can order using standard donation methods (see below). If you donate over the Internet, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org so we know you want a copy of JUDGMENT.
b) Donate to the EMPEROR'S CLOTHES DEFENSE FUND, using the donation methods below. If you donate over the Internet, please send an email so we know your donation is for the EMPEROR'S CLOTHES DEFENSE FUND. The money will be used to DEFEND EMPEROR'S CLOTHES and others under attack.
c) Defend free journalism by advertising JUDGMENT video on your Website or by email. For details about JUDGMENT, go to http://emperors-clothes.com/Film/judge.htm Post a link and let us know at email@example.com
Some readers have suggested, out of concern for Emperor's Clothes, that perhaps it would be safer just to remove JUDGMENT from our home page thus giving ITN nothing to attack. And perhaps this would make us safer, at least for the moment. But Emperor's Clothes stands for the freedom to expose lies. So what would be the point of buying safety at the cost of giving up the very thing we exist to fight for?
Please send whatever contributions you can! $20, $50, $100, $500 or more. Donations will be used to Defend Emperor's Clothes!
If you can afford to make a donation, please do. If you can pledge a regular monthly amount, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
Note: If you mail a donation or make one by secure server, please let us know by email at email@example.com to make sure we receive it. Thanks!
Thank you for reading Emperor's Clothes.
