コーポレートメディアは、(イスラエルによる)ガザ地区への侵攻の事実を歪めているだけでなく、まったく伝えていません。

イスラエルは2014年7月7日、パレスチナのガザ地区へ大規模な攻撃を開始しました。最初の週だけで400トンもの爆弾を落とし、130人以上のパレスチナ人を殺害しました。被害者のほとんどは一般市民、うち半数は女性と子どもでした。
このような大掛かりな殺戮を正当化する公式な理由としてイスラエルは、3人のイスラエル人のティーンエージャーがハマスにより殺害されたことをあげています。ただ、ハマス、そしてパレスチナ人がこの殺人事件に関わったことを示す証拠を何一つ明らかにしていません。

ではなぜイスラエルはガザを攻撃しているのでしょうか?この真相は天然ガスにあります。

ガザの海岸沿いには天然ガスが豊富にあることが判明しています。最大規模のガス源がこの地域にあります。共同採掘契約を締結しているブリティッシュ・ガスは、この地域一帯には少なくとも1兆平方フィートのガスがあると推測しています。これはパレスチナ人のものであり、その見返りを受けるのもこの人たちです。(しかし)イスラエルは認めていません。

ハマスとパレスチナ当局からなる合同自治政権は、イスラエルがこの地を掌握することを恐れており、それは阻止されなくてはならないとしています。

実に基本的なことです。あらゆる戦争には現実的な動機があります。それは天然資源、領土、そして権力です。戦争当事者はいつでも言い訳を思いつきます。そして私たちは自身でリサーチをしないと簡単に騙されてしまいます。ただ、そうならないようにするための実に簡単な方法が1つあります。それは、武力侵略による戦争には常に反対する、というものです。それだけです。これを行動原則とすれば、事実と倫理は最終的にあなた側に残ります。

倫理観といえば、たとえティーンエージャーがハマスにより殺害されたとしても、その事件に何の関わりもない何百という人をイスラエルに殺させる権利を与えるなどと考えるのは、一体どのような狂人でしょうか?

人口の密集した地域を爆撃するのは戦争的犯罪であり、米国政府は国民の税金を使ってこの攻撃の資金を提供しています。そうです。イスラエルは30億ドル超もの金額を毎年米国から援助されているのです。

この危機についての主要メディアの報道を見ると、そこで目にするのは、対抗措置としてパレスチナがミサイルを発射している場面ばかりでしょう。こうした報道は、ミサイルが原始的なためにたった一人のイスラエル人さえ殺害していないことを巧妙に伝えていないのです。

しばらくの間、この事件は中東で起きているのではなく、米国南東部で起きていることとして考えてみてください。いいですか、試しにパレスチナ・テキサスの事件とします。メキシコ出身の3人のティーンエージャーがパレスチナ・テキサスに行き、誰かに殺されてしまいました(犯人は分かりません)。メキシコは当然のこととして、この事件を相手国全域に対する空爆の理由と捉えます。メキシコ空軍は10日間にわたりパレスチナ・テキサス、隣接する地域を執拗に攻撃しますが、残念なことにここの地域の何も知らない人たちは、ここがメキシコの権利が完全に及ぶ場所であることを知らず、短銃や鹿狩り用のライフル銃でメキシコの爆撃機に向け発砲を始めました。メキシコとの国境全域に向けて発砲する者もいました。彼らの弾丸は標的に届くことはありませんでしたが、それでも自己防衛しようとしました。これこそ、受け入れられません。

奇妙に見えますか?

もはやイスラエルがパレスチナに対して自己防衛していないのは、ヨーロッパが米国の原住民に対して自己防衛していないのと同じです。何年にもわたり、イスラエルはパレスチナの領土を奪い、ブルドーザーを使って住宅を建設し、新たな居住地域を設定し、秩序立てて現地住民を追い出してきました。

これは防衛ではありません、これは民族浄化です。

それでは、私たちがパレスチナ人を助けるためにできることは何でしょうか?この問題が提起される場所ではどこでも積極的に議論に関わることから始めましょう。行儀よくするためだけの議論はやめましょう。ガザ地区では現在、女性や子どもたちが殺害されています。そして抑圧の陰で抑圧者は沈黙を守っています。

今こそ、イスラエルの行為を支持している人に対峙をする時です。これは意見や好みの問題ではありません。一般市民に対する軍事力の使用を正当化するのは恥ずべきこと、非倫理的なこと、そして結果が伴います。

Spaghetti alla Carbonara

Ingredients for 4 people:

- 400 grams of pasta
- 1 egg per person plus 1 for the pot (making 5)
- 150 grams of pig’s cheek
- black pepper grains to be ground
- 1 good tablespoon of pecorino romano cheese per person (also making 5) plus more to put on the dish

We begin by putting on the water for the pasta, salt it slightly and wait until it comes to a boil. In the meantime, cut into strips, though I prefer cubes, the pig’s cheek and put it to brown in a frying pan WITHOUT oil or any other fat, until it reaches the desired crispiness and at least until the fat is not transparent. For a slightly lighter dish you can also use bacon instead of pig’s cheek, but knowing that it is not the original recipe.

In a bowl, we put the egg yolks and beat them well, then add the pecorino romano and continuing to stir with a whisk we will get a light creamy sauce. Some people put a whole egg instead of a yolk in the saucepan. You can try both versions and let us know which you prefer. Then add a good sprinkling of pepper, and finish mixing. Remove the pig’s cheek from the heat and let it cool slightly .

In the meantime, you will have cooked the pasta so drain it al dente directly into the bowl with the eggs, mixing quickly to avoid the risk of making a so-called omelette. We recommend you to use a special container and do not pour the pasta and eggs into the frying pan with the bacon because the heat of the pan may harden the egg and you won’t get the effect of a creamy sauce on top any more.

Once the pasta has been well blended pour over the pig’s cheek that you could add directly to the pasta at the stage of plating up and serving, finishing off with another sprinkling of ground pepper and grated pecorino.


スパゲッティカルボナーラ

材料4人分:

-パスタ400グラム
-卵1人につき1個と全体用ににもう1個をプラス(5人分)
-豚肉(頬肉または豚トロ)150グラム
-粗挽き用黒コショウ粒適宜
-ぺコリノ・ロマーノ・チーズ大さじ強1を人数分(これも5人分)と、盛り付け用に余分に用意

 

まず始めに、塩を少々加えたパスタ用の水を沸騰させます。その間、短冊切りした豚肉を(私はキューブにする方が好きですが)フライパンで好みの焦げ具合になるまで、油やその他の脂分を使わずに焼きます。この時肉の脂分が透明でなくなるまでは焼きましょう。オリジナルのレシピではないですが、健康的な料理を好まれる方は、ベーコンを豚トロの代わりに使うとよいでしょう。

ボールに卵黄のみをよく溶いて、そこにペコリノ・ロマーノ・チーズを加えて、クリーミーな状態になるまで、泡立器で泡立てます。全卵をそのまま使う方もいますが、これは個人の好みによるでしょう。両方試してみて、どちらがお気に入りかを是非私どもに教えてください。さて、次は黒コショウを振りかけてよくまぜます。豚トロは火からおろして、あら熱を取りましょう。

ここでアルダンテに茹で上がったパスタを湯切りして、卵のソースといっしょにボールに入れてよく混ぜます。この時、オムレツのように卵が固まらないように手早く混ぜましょう。お薦めは、豚肉を調理したフライパンに直接ソースを入れてしまうと、すぐに卵が固まりクリーミーな出来上がりにならないので、余熱の残っているフライパンは使わずに、別のボールを用意して混ぜることです。こうすると

パスタにソースをよくからめたら、豚肉を混ぜます。盛り付けの段階で上にのせてもけっこうです。仕上げに、挽きたての黒コショウとチーズを振りかけてできあがり。

Our flat in Tokyo, was built in mid 2009, with the sole purpose of maximising profits for the owner.
The structure is really solid, and of course earthquake proof, clearly the “landlord” does not want to risk having to rebuild and lose money.
The flat is in Musashi Koyama, a convenient location two stops from Meguro.

The walls have no insulation whatsoever, we have to heavily rely on two air conditioners.
During summer and winter is impossible to keep the air conditioners switched off, as without any insulation temperatures drop really fast during winter, and the opposite happens during summer.

The interior of the flat is extremely low quality, the floor is made out of thin sheets of very soft wood, the walls are covered with a plasticky paper, and both the floor and the walls chip and bruise simply by staring at them too hard.
The owner is obviously counting on our deposit money to replace any inevitable damage to the interior, so that it will be able to minimise or even completely remove any necessary expenditure to make the flat ready for the next tenants when we move out.

The bathroom floor is of course glued plastic, very cheap as is the plastic Panasonic sink. The shower however, is great, of course the materials are the cheapest and probably overall below standard, but I can’t complain as I lived fifteen years in England, where the average bathroom sink has two separates taps, one for the very hot water (when you’re lucky) and the other for the very cold water, that’s right, no mixing, you would think that a country arrogant enough to call it self “great” would have some how mastered mix water.
Probably most British “landlords” believe that their tenants don’t appreciate the warmth of mixed water on their face in the morning but rather burn or freeze their face instead.

Going back to the flat in Tokyo, it was built to make money and not to provide the tenants with a nice home to live.
And that is the problem, how different would be our society if somehow we could remove money out of the equation, if our flat was somehow built with passion and with the desire to give a comfortable home to people.

Our flat, like many others, is so inefficient in terms of energy that is an insult to our planet, it should be illegal to build without using the most advanced insulations technologies, each building should strive to be energetically as self sufficient as possible.

Money did play an important part in the evolution of our society, however now money, as well as fossil fuels are dragging us down, and obviously slowing down our evolution, its time to let them go.

The surprising truth about what motivates us

I visited Hiroshima last 25th of December 2011, and the hypocrisy of U.S. policies on nuclear weapons was obvious.
While they are oppose to any one else developing nuclear weapons, they make sure their own weapons of mass destruction are up to date.
Below is quoted the original letter, and a photo of the plaque from the “Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum”.
Hiroshima Mayors have written hundreds of such a letters to leaders world wide since the nuclear attack the 6 of August 1945.

Letter of Protest

The City of Hiroshima has worked long and hard to help people around the world fully
understand the pain and sorrow of our hibakusha* experience. We believed that this
information would help them develop the strong will required to abolish nuclear weapons.
Despite our efforts, you announced this month that the U.S. conducted a new type of
nuclear test last November and again this past March at Sandia National Laboratories in
New Mexico.

Though these tests did not involve nuclear explosions, they can be understood as evidence
that the U.S. intends to maintain its nuclear stockpile. Coupled with the fact that you
revealed the testing only several months later, these tests have betrayed the hopes of the
hibakusha* and the millions of others who seek a nuclear-weapon-free world, while arousing
suspicion regarding your intentions. Such actions are completely unacceptable, and on
behalf of the A-bombed city of Hiroshima, I vehemently protest.

I urge you to thoroughly comprehend the experience of the survivors who witnessed the
bombing, understand their sincere wish for peace, and strive for the earliest possible
realization of a world free from nuclear weapons.

Mayor

Speech before the US House of Representatives, 02/12/09

Madame Speaker,

I have a few questions for my colleagues.

What if we wake up one day and realize that the terrorist threat is a predictable consequence of our meddling in the affairs of others?

What if propping up repressive regimes in the Middle East endangers both the United States and Israel?

What if occupying countries like Iraq and Afghanistan – and bombing Pakistan – is directly related to the hatred directed toward us and has nothing to do with being free and prosperous?

What if someday it dawns on us that losing over 5,000 American military personnel in the Middle East since 9/11 is not a fair trade-off for the loss of nearly 3,000 American citizens, no matter how many Iraqi, Pakistani, and Afghan people are killed or displaced?

What if we finally decide that torture, even if called enhanced interrogation techniques, is self-destructive and produces no useful information – and that contracting it out to a third world nation is just as evil?

What if it is finally realized that war and military spending is always destructive to the economy?

What if all wartime spending is paid for through the deceitful and evil process of inflating and borrowing?

What if we finally see that wartime conditions always undermine personal liberty?

What if conservatives, who preach small government, wake up and realize that our interventionist foreign policy provides the greatest incentive to expand the government?

What if conservatives understood once again that their only logical position is to reject military intervention and managing an empire throughout the world?

What if the American people woke up and understood that the official reasons for going to war are almost always based on lies and promoted by war propaganda in order to serve special interests?

What if we as a nation came to realize that the quest for empire eventually destroys all great nations?

What if Obama has no intention of leaving Iraq?

What if a military draft is being planned for the wars that will spread if our foreign policy is not changed?

What if the American people learn the truth: that our foreign policy has nothing to do with national security and that it never changes from one administration to the next?

What if war and preparation for war is a racket serving the special interests?

What if President Obama is completely wrong about Afghanistan and it turns out worse than Iraq and Vietnam put together?

What if Christianity actually teaches peace and not preventive wars of aggression?

What if diplomacy is found to be superior to bombs and bribes in protecting America?

What happens if my concerns are completely unfounded – nothing!

What happens if my concerns are justified and ignored – nothing good!
