Jeff Rathke, the State Department’s director of the Office of Press Relations, said that the attack took place near the village of Turmus Ayya on Friday.
Israeli authorities acknowledged “the seriousness of this incident and are looking to apprehend and take appropriate action against those responsible,” Rathke said. He added that Washington was "deeply concerned" by the attack. Settlers threw rocks at officials who had come to the area in two consular vehicles, according to Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld.
The officials were in the area to investigate Palestinian claims that settlers vandalized 5,000 Palestinian olive trees. The vehicles left the area and consular personnel canceled their scheduled event.

Most cancers "caused by bad luck - not lifestyle" ~ link ~ Sorry this is total bullshit! The Polio Vaccine alone is responsible for many millions of cancer deaths and they KNEW that the vaccine was contaminated by a virus that causes cancer!!!

They have not only suppressed cures (both natural and otherwise) but deliberately spread cancer as both a profit making operation and as one more Globalist Population Reduction Program!!! The bastards responsible for this have an eternity in Hell to look forward to, and they deserve it!!! This BS article earns Big Pharma and the mainstream news media hyping it the "dreaded" Five BS Award. Stirling

Neoliberal Policies in Greece ~ link ~Even before the dissolution of the Greek parliament and the ensuing electoral campaign, International and European powers have launched a campaign of lies and threats aimed at cowering the Greek electorate away from voting for SYRIZA (United Social Front) in the upcoming general election to take place on 25 January. Seconded by the mainstream European media, the “leaders”, Juncker, Merkel, Hollande, Renzi, or Schäuble, are preparing yet another brutal intervention into Greece’s home affairs, a country they have already turned into a mess of social ruin through the inhuman and barbarous austerity policies they have dictated.
The result will be decisive in the social war against the vast majority of the European population!
The CADTM does not have the least doubt about the real intentions of those who have used Greece as a European testing ground for the most extreme neoliberal policies and used the Greeks as guinea pigs for social, political and economic shock therapies. We must be ready for an escalation of their campaign. They cannot allow that SYRIZA gain victory and be emulated throughout Europe! They will stop at nothing because they are well aware that the result of the Greek elections will be decisive in the social war they are waging against the vast majority of the European population!
