Die Militarisierung des Internets "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

(Eigener Bericht) - Berliner Regierungsberater warnen deutsche Repressionsbehrden eindringlich vor der Durchfhrung von Cyberattacken via Internet. Da Hacker, die mit solchen Angriffen getroffen werden sollten, oftmals fremde Computernetzwerke fr ihre Aktionen nutzten, bestehe die Gefahr, die "Infrastruktur unbeteiligter Drittparteien" wie etwa Krankenhuser gravierend zu schdigen, schreibt die Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik (SWP) in einem aktuellen Arbeitspapier. Ein sogenannter Hack Back sei daher vergleichbar mit der "Bombardierung von zivilen Wohngebuden, in denen sich auch militrische Kombattanten befinden". Zudem knne eine Cyberattacke schnell eine "politische Eskalation" heraufbeschwren, die unter Umstnden den Einsatz "physischer Waffen" nach sich ziehe, erklrt die SWP. Auch rt die Stiftung davon ab, einer weiteren "Militarisierung des Internets" Vorschub zu leisten, da hiervon eine "zweifelhafte auenpolitische Signalwirkung" ausgehe. Dessen ungeachtet fordern deutsche Regierungsvertreter ebenso wie fhrende Militrs und Geheimdienstmitarbeiter immer wieder die Fhigkeit zu offensiven "Netzwerkoperationen" und proklamieren ein "Recht auf Gegenangriffe" im virtuellen Raum.

Further thoughts and an update "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Following my earlier piece, Craig has reminded me that Amina Lone, like the majority of her co-religionists, is "actively pro-Palestinian" on Twitter. Quelle surprise, as they say. 
No matter how outspoken a moderate Muslima may be in going public with her criticism of regressive cultural practices, she will still oppose Israel and Zionism. You can take the misogyny out of a moderate but you cant take the antisemitism out of a Muslim. Or something. 

Do look at Amina Lones Twitter feed for a minute.  Here she says the deselection happened in June not because of any recent interviews.
It just shows how misconceptions (lies?) jet round the world before the truth (whatever that is) has time to put its burka on.

Even if her deselection is genuinely nowt to do with Sarah Champions aborted criticism of Muslim grooming gangs, the perception that it is has been generally accepted as truthful.
The trouble is that, true or false, it has had  little impact on the Labour Partys standing, just as all the rest of the appalling stuff that pours forth from team Corbyn is ignored or glossed over by the MSM.

Also via the same timeline, note this series of tweets about the eyebrow brigade from uberfeminist including several foul-mouthed and embittered tweets by Nadia Chan. I wonder why Peter Kosminsky didn't base one of his characters on Ms Chan? His drama would have gained in authenticity what it might have lost in empathy.

The Spirit of TraneCD Review by Sammy Stein (Jazz In Europe) "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

http://jazzineurope.mfmmedia.nl/

We will be touring extensively starting this weekend

GA: six weeks ahead of our official Album Launch, here is our first album review published by Jazz in Europe.

 

Share

'The Spirit of Trane' is released simply because, for Gilad Atzmon, it is a chance to acknowledge possibly the greatest and most influential tenor sax player in jazz history. Gilad says, "whether it is his patented sheets of sound, his rapid fire improvisations, advanced harmonic progressions or lush interpretations of ballads, no aspiring music lover can afford to neglect the music of 'Trane" . As Gilad handed me one of the first copies of the CD at a gig recently he told me, you will love this'. He was, as he sometimes is, right. 

By Sammy Stein

This CD is a spiritual journey along with Coltrane, with Gilad adapting his distinctive style ( he often plays with an Eastern lilt or a more Parker-esque accent to his playing in my opinion) to try to capture the essence of Coltranes style, his beauty, skill and simply take the listener through significant stages of the man whose name is synonymous with almost sublime sax playing.

The CD opens with Ellingtons In A Sentimental Mood, a track which Coltrane rendered with such heartfelt emotion at times and here Gilad and his quartet produce an outstanding version, complete with the percussive rhythms lifted as if from the Ellington original counterpointing the emotive and beautiful playing of Atzmon as he soars across with the melody. There is a gorgeous double bass section from Yaron Stavi and the arrangement is interesting with both piano and bass having extended and interesting parts underneath the beautiful and explorative sax line. Gilads touch is surprisingly light and gentle on this number yet there is a strength and conviction throughout the track, particularly the last freely delivered section making it a great opener.

Bronislaw Kapers Invitation is next ( the other famed theme from MGMs On Green Dolphin Street). Given that this track is popular and has been done slow, fast, high, low and any which way in between, G...

ERYC: Misfeasance in Public Office Legal Action Announced

  • an In My View article by NIGEL WARD, up-dating readers a the developing situation at East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

~~~~~

As anticipated, the todays Yorkshire Post (28th August 2017) features, on page 5, a piece announcing the extent and nature of the legal action which is now in the process of being mounted against various individually identified personnel at East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

Misfeasance in public office is a cause of action in the civil courts of England and Wales and certain Commonwealth countries. It is an action against the holder of a public office, alleging in essence that the office-holder has misused or abused their power.

That the actions out of which the present lawsuits have emerged are Planning-related will come as no surprise to readers who have followed attempts made by Mr Peter ROBINSON (and others) to hold ERYC Leader Councillor Stephen PARNABY [Con.] (and others) to account.

The Enquirer will be covering the action as it unfolds.

Benjamin Netanyahus nightmare comes true as Putin crushes his plans "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

61142Source: Kremlin.ru

Benjamin Netanyahus nightmare is coming true. The guards of the Islamic Revolution of Iran and Hezbollah fighters prepare to attack Israel by using Syria as a springboard. The Israeli Prime Minister shared the terrible news on August 23, 2017 during a meeting with Vladimir Putin in Sochi (the meeting lasted for almost 2.5 hours). Despite Netanyahus emotional state, the Russian leader remained calm.

Iran is Russias strategic ally in the Middle East, Putin said. But Israel is also an important partner for Russia in the region, he added.

Moscow takes into account security interests of the Jewish state. Thus, as experts say, the Kremlin conducts a complex geopolitical game, balancing between Tehran and Tel Aviv.

Benjamin Netanyahu is a frequent guest in Russia. In 2016, the Prime Minister of Israel visited the Russian Federation twice: in April and June. His most recent visit to Sochi for a meeting with Putin is also a second one during the current year: he visited Moscow in early March 2017.

Netanyahu, 67, is considered the patriarch of Israeli politics. One can put him in the same line with other heavyweights of Israeli politics, such as Yitzhak Rabin, Shimon Peres and Ariel Sharon, and Netanyahu can rightly be considered the last of the Mohicans. However, even such an experienced and charismatic leader of Israel as Benjamin Netanyahu could not keep composure at a meeting with Vladimir Putin in his Sochi residence of Bocharov Ruchei.

According to eyewitnesses of the open part of the talks, the Israeli prime minister was too emotional and at times even close to panic. He described a picture of the apocalypse to the Russian president that the world may see if no efforts are taken to contain Iran, which, as Netanyahu believes, is determined to destroy Israel.

Netanyahu also told Putin that Israel was extremely concerned about Irans participation in the Syrian conflict. According to him, Tehran is working on creeping expansion in the Middle East under the pretext of a peaceful settlement in Syria. Iran, he added, supplies weapons to Hezbollah fighters and gradually attracts Lebanon, Iraq and Yemen in the sphere of its influence.

Netanyahu told Putin that Iran takes the territories that the international coalition and Russia liberate from ISIL terrorists in Syria. Tehran does not hide its intention to destroy the state Isra...

Greenways bring huge benefits so why dont we have more? "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

As summer 2017 draws to a close it is useful to consider the impact of tourism on the Irish economy. More particularly we can sometimes draw lessons and analogies from the the tourism sector to the wider economy. 

The proposed South Kerry Greenway, a cycle track along the bed of the old great southern and western railway from Killarney to Cahersiveen provides an excellent example of the good and bad of Irish economic planning

 

Despite importance of tourism in Ireland there are relatively few published academic studies of its impact. Typically this is done by estimatin of a multiplier. This shows the impact of a marginal euro on the economy when that euro is spent in a sector. Two types are calculated direct and indirect, the indirect also accounting for the increase in demand and consumption from the injection generated by the first.

 

Department of tourism estimates that upwards of 8 billion in revenue is generated from the tourism sector, and that something of the order of 200,000 jobs are dependent upon it. Such a large sector should really have a large amounts of research pertaining to its impact. Such research is has been produced tends to, at least in recent years focus on issues around sustainability, or on willingness to pay for more environmentally friendly products. Part of the difficulty as the tourism sector is diffuse; the high-end golfers who common jetting in played links courses of the West Coast are very distinctly different market from the European hiking and bicycling tourists. We do have some estimates of the impact : a 2014 comparative study put the direct multiplier for hotels and restaurants at 1.4, which would suggest a total impact of perhaps 2 or 3: a 2014 studysuggests that walking tourism generates approx. 12 jobs and ...

Has Andrew Norfolk exposed another scandal? "IndyWatch Feed Europe"


Andrew Norfolk, The Times

The Times has a disturbing report today by Andrew Norfolk about Tower Hamlets council placing a five-year-old white Christian girl in the care of two Muslim households in London.

The girl apparently became "very distressed" because in one of the households they "don't speak English", removed her necklace which had a Christian cross on it, suggested she learn Arabic, refused to allow her to eat her favourite food carbonara because it contained bacon, and taught her to think that "Christmas and Easter are stupid" and that "European women are stupid and alcoholic". Her first carer wore a niqab in public. Her second carer wears the full burka in public.

(Mr. Norfolk is, of course, the reporter who did so much to expose the Rotherham grooming scandal.)

It was good to see that last night's The Papers on the BBC News Channel led with the story, though with words of caution from BBC presenter Julian Worricker about the report's "claims". He presented the council's response and added this caveat:
Just to round this particular conversation off: Allegations there at the moment. Obviously we can't verify them at this point ourselves but we put them out there because there it is on the front page of the Times and we put the council's view.
Given the obvious importance of such a story it's to be hoped that the BBC will follow it up extensively, and not just because it's on the front page...

[Portugal] Multiform combat against global tyranny, irreducibility to the advance of state terrorism "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

[International solidarity week with anarchist prisoners August 23 to 30, 2017]

Multiform combat against global tyranny, irreducibility to the advance of state terrorism

In Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Peru, Brazil, Mexico, Bolivia, Paraguay, Greece, Turkey, Syria, USA, Venezuela, Germany, Poland, Russia, India or China as in Portugal or any other part of the world the order is to attack by all means those who resist, relentlessly pursuing all combatants, imprisoning them, torturing them, killing them if they deem it necessary. The dogs of Power receive the salary to that, the laws are adapted to legitimize the crimes of state terrorism, all crimes of capitalism. Capitalism, in all nuances, feeds on these situations while the peoples remain inert, terrified or dormant, ignoring to what extent their inaction reinforces the implementation of fascism that is tried to install everywhere.

We are against all frontiers, against all forms of power, of subordination, against all forms of capitalism. We could appeal in particular to the solidarity with comrade Santiago Maldonado, disappeared by the police in Argentina (when he was in solidarity with the dignified struggle of the Mapuche people) or with all the other anarchists who struggle daily around the world for the destruction of this system, for freedom, risking their lives, inside and outside prisons however, we consider that the only way to defend your freedom and life is to take care of our freedom and our own life, each of us. This is the memory that must prevail.

Multiform combat against global tyranny, irreducibility to the advance of state terrorism.
The passion for freedom is stronger than all prisons!

Man beobachte die Entwicklung in dem Land "sehr genau" und registriere bereits "eine Reihe von ersten vorsichtigen Anfragen", berichtet der fr Nahost zustndige Referatsleiter beim Deutschen Industrie- und Handelskammertag (DIHK). Anlass fr die uerung ist die gestern zu Ende gegangene Damascus International Fair, eine der traditionsreichsten Messen der Region, die in diesem Jahr zum ersten Mal seit Beginn des Krieges wieder stattfinden konnte. Gute Aussichten, beim syrischen Wiederaufbau zum Zuge zu kommen, werden vor allem Unternehmen aus Russland, Iran und China eingerumt. Die Bundesregierung hat sich seit 2012 zwar um Schritte zur Nothilfe und zum Wiederaufbau bemht, dies jedoch auf die von Aufstndischen kontrollierten Regionen beschrnkt. Davon profitiert haben auch Gebiete wie die Provinz Idlib, die heute vom Al Qaida-Ableger Al Nusra (umbenannt in Tahrir al Sham) beherrscht wird.

Browbeaten "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Unfortunately, the fashion for painting huge eyebrows on top of our actual eyebrows is still with us. (The actual fashion is, like, so over, but people will fail to keep up with the cutting edge. 


As heavy-handed with invective as they are with war-paint, two Muslimas, one who describes herself as an anti-colonialist anti-Imperialist Islamist and another who says she is as a third generation British Asian Pakistani woman with distinctly left-leaning politics are part of a group that have set up a Muslim ladies book club. And very angry, they are. Too angry for the local Mosque, i.e., pretty angry.

They have assembled in a cafe with interviewer Assed Baig to discuss the findings of yet another inquiry, and are  being filmed for Channel 4 News. After eighteen months of research the inquiry has concluded that the relationship between the government and the Muslim community is broken. 

It occurred to me that Peter Kosminsky devoted a similar number of months to his quest for the truth about Islamic State. Its rather optimistic to assume eighteen months is long enough to get to the bottom of whatever it is that makes Muslims so angry if you cant make the connection between that and Islam itself. Eighteen years probably wouldnt even do it.

On this particular occasion the anger was directed at the Prevent strategy. Baig asked: how do you safeguard children if you dont have Prevent?
Third generation British Asian Pakistani woman leapt into action almost before hed finished the question.

USA - CORRESPONDENT: Diamond City "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

S. MarshallBy SHARI MARSHALL smarshall@leadhill.net

....The OMRPWA, our water provider, has been working along with others to get the requirement to add fluoride removed from Arkansas law due to the health concerns and the added cost. Two water districts in Arkansas have refused to fluoridate, and are involved in lawsuits with the Arkansas Department of Health. The Ozark Mountain Regional Public Water Authority and the Madison County Regional Water District have opposed fluoridation based on concerns not just about human health effects, but that fluoridation chemicals are so corrosive they can reduce the life of the water delivery system by 40 percent while increasing lead leaching from old pipes. Unfortunately, opponents of Arkansas water fluoridation failed to remove the state mandate and must now wait another two years until the legislature is in session. There is some hope, though. A lawsuit was recently filed in federal court in California by the Fluoride Action Network (FAN) and other groups to get fluoride out of drinking water all across the country............

USA - LETTER: Water authority 'does not want to hear' from fluoride opponents "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

After the city council meeting, the city solicitor stated to me as I was leaving that, "The difference in Johnstown and Meadville is that in Johnstown the water authority is owned by the city." This should be explained openly to the public.
As for council continually stating that, "We should go to water authority meetings," it is quite clear that the water authority does not want to hear from anyone who is against fluoridating Meadville's water. Dr. Christopher Knapp, a very credible speaker on the fluoridation issue, was treated very rudely at the Aug. 16 meeting. Watch re-runs of the meeting on Armstrong Cable, channel 23. 
The water authority has heard several times at public meetings many speaking against fluoridation, myself included. The Meadville Area Water Authority only wants to hear from those favoring fluoridation, a small number of "special interests" in this community who are controlling this situation. As has been said in the past, something is rotten in Denmark, and I think we all now what that means. 
The exception as far as the water board goes is Hal Tubbs, very credible in his comments and motion (not seconded) to hear from MAWA's customers. Meadville, West Mead and Vernon citizens must become informed and stand up against this effort to fluoridate their public water whether by the water authority polling customers, making sure we are heard or by investigation.

German Government Shuts Down Indymedia: What It Means "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

The German government has shut down the German Indymedia site linksunten.indymedia.org, the most widely used German-language platform for radical politics and organizing. They have also conducted raids in Freiburg to seize computers and harass those they accuse of maintaining the site, absurdly justifying this on the grounds that the alleged administrators constitute an illegal organization for the sake of destroying the German Constitution. This represents a massive escalation in state repression against what the authorities call left-wing extremism, disingenuously suggesting an equivalence between those who seek to build communities beyond the reach of state violence and Neo-Nazis organizing to carry out attacks and murders like the ones in Charlottesville last week.

In the last couple of years, more and more attention has accumulated around linksunten, which offers a space for people to post anonymously. For example, in 2011, a communiqu appeared on the platform claiming responsibility for politically motivated sabotage on the subway infrastructure in Berlin. The site was also used to release information about fascists and Neo-Nazis. In 2016, an article on linksunten presented the complete data of every participant at the convention of the far-right nationalist party Alternative for Germany (Alternative fr Deutschland, or AfD), a total of 3000 names. This further attracted hostile attention from far-right advocates of state repression.

Before the 2017 G20 summit took place in Hamburg, the corporate media was already focusing on linksunten, declaring it to be the coordination page of militant anti-G20 protestors. The AfD started a campaign against the platform, pushing inquiries about Indymedia in Federal parliament and trying to force local governments to ban the platform...
