What did Israel strike in Syria on January 30, 2013: a Convoy or a Research Center?

Posted by Waterput on Wednesday, January 30, 2013, In : Syria 

(updated on February 4, 2013, 20:28h)

On Wednesday, January 30, 2013, reports surfaced which seemed to suggest that Israel attacked Syria twice from the air. First it would have struck a convoy of weapons that was heading to Lebanon, supposedly to Hezbollah (1), and according to another source it would have hit a research center at Jamraya in Damascus countryside (2). 

What has happened here? Later it turned out that there was only one strike, but the sources differ on what was hit by the Israe...

Rupert Sheldrake on Science's delusional belief that it has understood the nature of Reality in Principle

Posted by Waterput on Wednesday, January 30, 2013, In : Science 

In a wonderful lecture during a conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico in January 2013, Rupert Sheldrake questions the belief system of current science. He speaks of Science's delusion as the belief that science has basically understood the nature of reality and that only a few details in the margins need clarification. Watch these videos by a scientist, who exemplifies the way a true scientist should be: daring, creative, confrontative and explorative.

Pepe Escobar on the US Failures in Libya and Egypt and their Future Shadow Wars

Posted by Waterput on Tuesday, January 29, 2013, In : Pepe Escobar Reports 

I love the reports by Pepe Escobar. On January 28, 2013, he talked to RT (*) on the failures of the US policy in both Libya and Egypt. Pepe has got the gift to speak with a smile and still have a very strong analysis (1). For me he is an example of the ideal journalist. He says things like: "As far as Egypt, the US was finally embracing the crazy policy of the Qatari Government, which you can sum up as nothing but Muslim Brotherhood in the Arab World."

 
 
He states that the majority of the pe...

No Legal Prosecutions against Opposition Members when they Participate in National Dialogue (and other news)

Posted by Waterput on Monday, January 28, 2013, In : Syria 
On January 28, 2013, Syria has sent two letters to the UN in which the plans are outlined that were presented by President Assad during his speech on January 6, which were ridiculed by many western media (1). 
 
One element is that all legal prosecutions against any opposition political figure is stopped when that particular person participates in the national dialogue which could bring about peace in Syria, as long as there are people willing to join the National Dialogue, and stop the killing...

Students in Syrian Al-Salamiyyeh are Rehabilitating their Schools (and other developments)

Posted by Waterput on Sunday, January 27, 2013, In : Syria 
In the news bulletin from the Free Syrian Press on January 27, 2013 (1) we can hear about an initiative in the Syrian village of Al-Salamiyyeh, in the Hama countryside, where students and the Association of Youth have joined forces to rehabilitate their schools which were used by these western-backed terrorist killing squads.

The town of al-Salamiya witnessed a cruel bomb explosion on January 21 that killed 32 citizens and caused the destruction of the National Hospital. The Syrian Ministry th...

Is there a Shift in the Position of the Enemies of Syria towards President Assad?

Is there a Shift in the Position of the Enemies of Syria towards President Assad?

INTRODUCTION

The international positions towards the crisis in Syria have been clear for quite some while now. There are basically two positions: one that calls for dialogue between the parties within Syria combined with a rejection of foreign interference. The other position is far more aggressive and calls for regime change in Syria with a rejection of dialogue and a strong support for the armed gangs or the 'opposition' against the Syrian government.

The aggressive position is sup...

That combination of Colors reminds me of something

For those who want to make the world a better place, there are various paths to travel. If you take a look at the articles on World Mathaba you can get an idea of quite a few possible roads to take. One route is to inform people about the way we are being fooled and manipulated: explain to people how the media are being used to make you think in a certain direction and to stop you from knowing the real truth. The geo-political dynam...

Can we alter the strength of a certain timeline?

I remember this Star Trek episode in which a group of rather unkind beings had phenomenal abilities to see into the future. They had this grand hall filled with 'clouds', where each cloud portrayed a particular timeline, or a certain turn of events. At a certain stage they were very pleased with their future, because nearly all possible timelines in these clouds showed an outcome that would grant these beings absolute power over a cer...

To Honor the Vital Role of the Ego

A life without the ego, is like a pub with no beer

INTRODUCTION
When trying to get a grasp on the world and the people in it, there are numerous perspectives that you can adopt. You could go for one of the world religions, which I am inclined to see as 'all-in-one'-packages, meaning that they provide a whole set of relatively fixed ways to regard life in various areas.

If you don't opt for the big religions, you could decide to make your own set of ideas and views towards life. You ar...

The Human Tendency to Defend and Protect its own Truth

The relativity of our own truths (drawing by M.C. Escher)

In a number of articles I have tried to focus on our personal responsibility to effect change. I believe that before any true and external revolution can take hold, the revolutionaries should invest time in working on their own inner revolution. This article tries to explore our tendency to hold on to our own version of what we think is the truth, despite almost everything.

I would like to encourage the readers of World Mathab...

Divinity within reach?
Divinity within reach?

Through various articles on World Mathaba I'm trying to explore ways to not only move against the current distortions we have created on our planet, but also to find new ways of improving our mode of interaction with the world.

In order to move away from selfish habits like greed and the lust for power, it makes sense to work out perspectives that provide viable alternatives to these deeply ingrained habits.

If we were to focus our minds on different matters the...

War in Heaven and the Exploitation through Religion

Obedience to God/Allah/Jahweh is often important in religion. But why?
Obedience to God/Allah/Jahweh is often important in religion. But why?

My father used to say that many wars are the result of religions fighting each other. His solution was the immediate abolishment of all world-wide religions. I think that such a solution would be a bit too simple. For religion has many good attributes, like giving advice on how to live peacefully with each other, and to respect other people and their approach to life.

A decade ago I ran into a book that shifted my...

Questioning a 2010 Rumour about Julian Assange being some 'Rothschild Puppet'

Prompted by a discussion after the publication of an article on Julian Assange at World Mathaba in November 2012 (1), I decided to delve a bit deeper into a rumour that was launched in december 2010 by someone on a forum (2), which was quoted by radios.cz. This rumour claims that because Julian Assange hired a lawyer whose firm also defends Rothschilds interests, Julian Assange would therefore be a Rothschilds Puppe...

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has gone through a number of events lately which would make one forget that perhaps the two-state solution might not be the best for the people in the Holy Land in the long runThe upgrade of Palestine to an official Observer State at the UN-meeting on November 29, 2012 seems to pave the way for the establishment of a Palestinian land which would consist of the Gaza Strip and the West Bank.

How Alternative websites can make things worse for the 99%

Triggered by a discussion on Julian Assange on this website, I would like to share some thoughts on the effect some alternative news websites might have on quite a few people, and how they can - probably unwillingly - support the 1% through this.

When I talk about the 1%, I refer to the term introduced by the Occupy Wall Street movement, which stands for the ruling class, consisting of the top brass of corporations, banksters...

In his famous speech in February 2011 Muammar Gaddafi used the words 'shibr shibr, bet bet, dar dar, zenqa zenqa, fard fard' to voice his intention to rid Benghazi of the terrorists 'square by square, house by house, room by room, alley by alley and person by person'. Unfortunately   the United Nations were fooled into believing that Gaddafi's air force had bombed certain districts in Tripoli, and that a terrible massacre against 'civilians' was about to take p...

Mathabafy your world through Revolutionary Kindness

The Great Leader, Muammar Gaddafi, peace be upon him, once gave a few definitions on the meaning of the word mathaba. On a fellow Mathaba site we can read his following words:

"Linguistically, it is the chastest place. And revolutionarily, it is the headquarters where the revolutionary forces meet to devise their daily, weekly, monthly and annual programme. (Meeting And Talking Helping All Become Aware).  Still, politically, it is t...

Kindness during Eid-Prayers

As a non-muslim European who is getting fed up with watching all these people kill each other every day (1), I would like to make some kind of contribution to create something different. I have lost my faith in the kind of facebook-internet-activism in which you click or shout out against something in a comment. Like Icke eloquently said during a recent meeting in London (2), it's time to do more than just spread your anger or fear, it's time to look for different approaches and think beyond...

Creating a Personal Dance with the News

Posted by W. Aterput on Wednesday, January 23, 2013, In : Reflections 

Let's start off by saying that I'm no political expert on the Middle East. Although I have been actively following the events in the region, since NATO's war on Libya, I come across new elements on a regular basis. As a writer on this platform it could be tempting to try and compete with the famous voices in the anti-imperialistic movement, like Salbuchi, Finningham, Cartalucci etc.  

Wouldn't it be great to give an analysis that stirs a new debate and leads to wonderful new insights with ma...

Trying to move beyond Imperialism vs anti-Imperialism

Posted by W. Aterput on Thursday, January 17, 2013, In : Reflections 

I have been actively following and writing about the ways Libya and Syria have become preys of the neo-colonial powers. I became aware of how biased the western media are when it comes to these 'wars' on nations that oppose the western hegemony. I felt the urge to try and present the opposing view on these matters as much as possible. Let the world know that there is another perspective than the one fed to us by the main stream media.

Fortunately we have internet now, which allows us to spread...
