Steve Lendman – Israeli Iron Fist Ruthlessness – 7 November 2014

RT logoIsrael operates extrajudicially. Rule of law principles don’t matter. Nonexistent security threats justify anything goes.

Palestinians are victimized for wanting to live free. Demanding fundamental civil and human rights everyone deserves.
Protesting throughout the West Bank and East Jerusalem. Largely peacefully.
Israel considers legitimate resistance “terrorism.” Justifying iron fist harshness.
“We will respond to any attempt to undermine the order and stability of Israel’s capital with an iron fist,” Netanyahu said. Warning of “a prolonged battle.”
“Jerusalem is not up for debate,” he added. Its mayor Nir Barket echoed similar views, saying:
“(T)he message we will send the terrorists (is we’re) here to stay. We will not budge. We will overcome the challenges and win this battle.”

‘If Germany Can’t Pull European Economy Out Of Crisis – Eurozone Future In Doubt’ – 7 November 2014

RT logoThe responsibility for the protests in Brussels should be shared between the EU Commission and each of the governments, French economist Jacques Sapir told RT.

RT: We are seeing a protest at the very heart of the EU. How hard must it be for the people that they are driven to such measures?

Jacques Sapir: The European Commission sets rules to reduce the budget deficit in a lot of countries. But it is the government of each country which is implementing these cuts in budget in France, Italy or like right now – in Belgium. I think that the burden is to be shared between the EU Commission and each government.

RT: The Belgium authorities should take the measures according to the EU regulations. Do you think there is any other way they could be dealing with this problem?

Mexico Unexpectedly Cancels $3.75Bn Bullet Train Deal With China – 7 November 2014

RT logoMexico has abruptly cancelled a contract worth $3.75 billion (58.9 billion pesos) with a Chinese-led rail consortium, just two days after it was awarded. The project to construct the country’s first bullet train faced opposition from local lawmakers.

The China Railway Construction Corp. and CSR Corp. won the contract Monday, which set off steam amongst opposition politicians, who claimed the tender by the Chinese company, the sole bidder, lacked transparency and legitimacy. A new auction will be held and will include more bidders.

The Bullying Of Hungary – The Country That Dared To Disobey The US And EU – 7 November 2014

25 years ago, Hungary was being toasted in the West for opening its border with Austria to East Germans, in a move which led to the fall of the Berlin Wall. Now the Western elites are not happy with Budapest which they consider far too independent.

The refusal of Prime Minister Viktor Orban and his ruling Fidesz party to join the new US and EU Cold War against Russia, which has seen the Hungarian parliament approving a law to build the South Stream gas pipeline without the approval of the European Union, in addition to the populist economic policies Fidesz has adopted against the largely foreign owned banks and energy companies, has been met with an angry response from Washington and Brussels.

Hungarian officials have been banned from entering the US, while the European Commission has demanded that the Hungarians explain their decision to go ahead with South Stream. That’s on top of the European Commission launching legal action against the Hungarian government for its law restricting the rights of foreigners to buy agricultural land.
