Robert Fisk: Six years in Guantanamo

Thursday, 25 September 2008

Sami al-Haj walks with pain on his steel crutch; almost six years in the nightmare of Guantanamo have taken their toll on the Al Jazeera journalist and, now in the safety of a hotel in the small Norwegian town of Lillehammer, he is a figure of both dignity and shame. The Americans told him they were sorry when they eventually freed him this year ? after the beatings he says he suffered, and the force-feeding, the humiliations and interrogations by British, American and Canadian intelligence officers ? and now he hopes one day he'll be able to walk without his stick.

’60 die’ as Afghan boat sinks –

It’s quite interesting to note how much of this article centers around the tragic drowning of 60 people and how much of it reminds the reader that the Taliban are bad people. I would feel offended if I were american, that CNN has the impression that my IQ cannot be more than 30.

Read between the lines people, somebody did something terrible here and once again, the Afghans have had to pay the price.

Israeli army ‘used human shields’

An Israeli human rights group has accused Israel’s army of using two young Palestinians as human shields during a recent raid in the West Bank.

The B’Tselem group said it had testimony from a 15-year-old boy, his 24-year-old cousin and also an 11-year-old boy.

They said soldiers had forced them at gunpoint to enter houses ahead of the troops during the raid in Nablus.

This is what your greed for oil means to Iraqi’s

This is a report of a sickening incident in Iraq. Makes you wonder what other atrocities go by un-reported. And all this so that Bush and co. can wallow in more oil. Shame on those of you that support this war with your taxes or even your silence. All of this in the name of stupid patriotism.

May that family be blessed with Jannah and may those guilty pay for their sins in this life and the next.

Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas: The Prophet sent Mu’adh to Yemen and said, “Be afraid, from the curse of the oppressed as there is no screen between his invocation and Allah.” Shaih
