A PLANETARY APPEAL - PLEASE CIRCULATE AS WIDELY AS POSSIBLE!
I am committed to the struggle against Islamophobia in Britain and elsewhere.
Though I am a nominal Christian I have thrown in my lot with my Muslim fellow-countrymen in order to face the anti-evolutionary forces behind the current Islamophobia.
The time is now ripe for the formation everywhere of an Alliance for Peace, Justice and the Defence of Civil Liberties, an Alliance for everyone, including Muslims, Jews, Christians and All Others alike.
If humanity is to evolve in this new Christian century then it will only do so by first facing and then prevailing against the anti-evolutionary forces behind Islamophobia.
Islamophobia is, itself, nothing more than a red herring for the real intention of the criminal minds behind it is to stir-up communal strife in order to justify the implementation of draconian, totalitarian laws to turn our Planet into one vast corporate totalitarian prison. What the Canadian journalist, Eric Margolis, calls the 'sovietization' of the USA is but the first significant step towards this planetary gulag.
I am sending this to you via the Internet, trusting that this revolutionary method of planetary communication has its own impetus and dynamic to set the world afire with an idea whose time is NOW.
In the spirit of a truly democratic, horizontal network of information and action I only ask that if you are inspired by this idea to make it your own and to run with it. Act as you are inspired to do. If it takes a hundred monkeys to change the dietary habits of an entire species, think what a hundred humans could do!
I ask you to circulate this request to everyone you know around the world. Please do reply to me and give me your feedback.
Another World is Possible!

Real Big Brother in the UK
Over 4 million cameras, being retro-fitted with speaker systems. Yelling out orders to people like a concentration camp. Doesn't sound like V for Vendetta at all.
If you want people to be nice or clean up more, have it a point for every citizen to do public service much like some country's requirement for military service.

Sack Parliament! from Indymedia.org.uk
At 1pm on Monday October 9th, up to one hundred and fifty angry and concerned people converged on the Palace of Westminster to sack parliament. The plan was to surround parliament and cause parliamentary activities to cease. MPs, Lords and civil servants would be prevented from re-opening Parliament.
As soon as protesters started to arrive, police quickly moved in to stop-and-search everyone that was considered 'suspicious'. Many people were turned away from reaching Parliament Square, others were singled out by police units and prevented from joining the protests. See 2pm update when around 100 protesters were surrounded by police. An NUJ photographer was hospitalised by police after being violently thrown into a kerb.
Eventually the remaining demonstrators were left out of the police pen, after having been searched, photographed and identified. There are reports of several arrests, but there is no confirmation of numbers as yet.

Full of strange inconsistencies this sounds like a Show Trial to me: is this man mentally fit enough to be tried?
He has been accused of all manner of extravagant plots but they're all on paper, there are no known fellow 'conspirators', he has no funds to carry-out any of the alleged projects and there is no evidence that any atrocities were being physically prepared!
Yet the man pleads guilty in a high-security court and judgement is to be made in circumstances of even higher security.
Is this nothing more than another in a long line of disturbing political trials where a mentally vulnerable man is being victimised by the British state and its thought police?Man admits terror plot to blow up Wall St amid 'dirty bomb' revelation
DAILY MAIL, By BEN TAYLOR and COLIN FERNANDEZ http://urlsnip.com/112908
"A British Muslim terrorist mastermind faces life in jail after he admitted plotting a radioactive 'dirty bomb' attack in the UK and a string of devastating atrocities in the USA.
Dhiren Barot, 34, planned to kill "as many innocent people as possible" by blowing up some of the world's largest financial institutions including the New York Stock Exchange, the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.
In the UK, the banker's son - who was brought up in London as a Hindu - plotted to detonate a radioactive bomb and blow up buildings by packing stretch limousines with gas cylinders in underground car parks.
The unprecedented and extraordinary attack was dubbed the 'Gas Limo project' and was designed to cause "injury, fear, terror or chaos" for hundreds of Britons.
Both plots were smashed by Scotland Yard in August 2004 when Barot was arrested in Harlesden, North West London, after a dramatic chase which culminated in him hiding in a barber's shop.
Yesterday a heavily-guarded Barot sat in the glass panelled dock at Woolwich Crown Court, South East London, as he heard the Crown outline how he plotted the wave of attacks.
The clerk of the court said to him: "On count one of this indictment you are charged with conspiracy to murder.
"The particulars of the offence being that on diverse days between January 1 2000 and August 4 2004, you conspired together with other persons unknown to murder other persons.
"Do you plead guilty or not guilty?"
Barot, wearing a khaki-coloured zip-up jumper and black shirt and sporting a short beard, said calmly: "I plead guilty." and made notes on his laptop computer throughout the hearing.
Outlining the basis of plea, Edmund Lawson, QC, said that the conspiracy against the US buildings included attacks on the Washington-based World Bank and International Monetary Fund, the New York Stock Exchange and two financial institutions: the Citigroup and Prudential buildings.
The idea, said Mr Lawson, was to carry out bombings "with no warning".
He added: "They were plainly designed to carry out explosions designed to kill as many innocent people as possible."
Detailing the planned UK attacks, Mr Lawson described "the gas limo project".
"That was... the main cornerstone or main target of a series of planned attacks involved packing three limousines with gas cylinders, explosives and the like, detonating them in underground car parks," he said.
The limo project was to be supported by 'three other projects' the court heard; "a number of further collateral objectives to cause injury, fear, terror or chaos".
The court heard how Barot sketched out details for a "radioactive dirty bomb project".
Mr Lawson added: "The defendant expressed the preference in respect of the radiation project was that it deserved to be an independent project in its own right.
"The radiation dirty bomb project was not intended to kill but rather to carry out the objectives I referred to:, injury, fear, terror and chaos
"The radiation project was designed among other things to affect some 500 people."
Barot, who was raised a Hindu, attended the highly rated Kingsbury High School in the North London suburbs.
His parents, Indian-born Manu Barot, a retired banker and his wife Bharati, arrived in Britain from Kenya in 1973 when their son was just 12 months old. following the imposition of draconian laws barring non-Kenyans working in economically important industries.
The family still live in a £300,000 house in a quiet 1930s cul-de sac.
Barot took exams in English, Maths, French, Graphical Communication, and Typewriting but was rejected from jobs with two High Street banks and left to pursue various menial jobs.
But, by the age of 20, however, he had converted to Islam after a family visit to the disputed territory of Kashmir - the subject of a bitter and bloody battle between India and Pakistan.
Barot also faced 12 other charges: one of conspiracy to commit public nuisance, seven of making a record of information for terrorist purposes and four of possessing a record of information for terrorist purposes.
The judge ordered all these charges to lie on file following his guilty plea to conspiracy to murder.
Mr Justice Butterfield, said that when Barot is sentenced at a later date he "would be the first Muslim terrorist to be sentenced for such a grave offence as conspiracy to murder. It is likely to attract very considerable debate and discussion".
Seven other men are due to face trial next year. Yesterday his mother, a supermarket worker, refused to comment when contacted by the Daily Mail by telephone.
Friends of the family said Barot was a lovely boy who had been brainwashed by extremists.
"He was a really good kid. How can a nice Hindu boy change into a Muslim? I believe he was brainwashed," said a neighbour.
"The family are some of the nicest people you could ever meet and it was a shock to people round here to hear about their son."
Another neighbour said: "The family are lovely and it's such a shock to hear this news because of what nice people they are."
The Barot family home was a few doors away from the childhood home of Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts. Watts also attended Kingsbury High School as did pop star George Michael.
Security at court yesterday was so tight that even police officers were forced to undergo checks."
The details of this trial, some of which I've mentioned above, are very disturbing. Barot's behaviour suggests a mentally unstable person. I wonder if his mental state was ever considered before he was sent to trial?
Is this man -a convert- looking to be martyred as a hero?
How can anyone be declared guilty of a conspiracy to murder for just writing some stuff on paper and making some videos? It sounds like Barot was on a Walter Mitty-like fantasy trip.
If writing just a few notes about some crazy plans makes one guilty of conspiracy then Agatha Christie would be one of the world's greatest serial-killer terrorists never brought to justice!
This is nonsense!
Yet this man is now under the threat of a life sentence!
The British judiciary has deteriorated into nothing more than a corrupt, political tool. Both the judiciary and the police are repeating on the mainland all the injustices they committed in Ireland.
It is surely the sign of a decayed Empire in its death throes.

How the Mighty have Fallen!
"Media organisations could receive the Nobel peace prize in future," Professor Geir Lundestad, secretary of the Norwegian Nobel committee, told MediaGuardian.co.uk.
Prof Lundestad speaks on behalf of the five committee members, who tend not to talk about their work to the media. He serves as an adviser to them and sits on all their deliberations, though he cannot vote on who gets the prize. "Good news coverage, as opposed to propaganda or inaccurate reports, can be essential to peace," he said.
Prof Lundestad mentioned several contenders, such as CNN, the New York Times, Le Monde and El Pais.
However, he made a notable exception of the BBC. "Some years ago, the BBC would have been an obvious candidate because it was the international model for news organisations. Nowadays, it is more debatable." He added: "We all know about the problems the BBC has had in recent years," without elaborating.
Errm, I wonder if this could be anything to do with Tony Bliar's brazenly political appointment of the zionist, Michael Grade, as the BBC's Director General and its subsequent transformation into a servile tool of zionist propaganda?

|Born Randriananantoandro Clement 46 years ago in Toliara, Madagascar, KILEMA began playing with local bands and building rustic guitars (with strings made from bicycle brake cables) at the age of 12. After getting a degree in English studies at the Ankatso University, he went "pro" as a vocalist, composer, and multi-instrumentalist, performing with the likes of the Justin Vali Trio under the aegis of Peter Gabriel's Real World label. KILEMA formed his own band in 1997 and his first solo album ('Ka Malisa') was released in 1999. He now resides in Cordoba, Spain, and regularly tours with his brother Nesta and other Spanish musicians. KILEMA (which means "Clement" in Malagasy) is a master of the Marovany, the Kabosy, and the Katsa (handmade string instruments native to his country) and carries the magical, rhythmic soul of Madagascar wherever he goes.|
