 -It’s amazing, it’s wonderful, and it’s so significant! I continue to experience and observe the most exponential increase in synchronistic events and communication I have ever witnessed and it continues to unfold daily. Writers, posters and internet information sharers are networking at such a consciously connected level it’s just fantastic, and everything ties into it.

I know for myself, I no sooner write or read or post something on a subject but bam, there’s related stories, videos, articles or personal comments coming into my own and the general information field like a flood. And it continues to increase.

Through thick and thin, good news and bad, our connectivity continues to quicken. That’s something to be encouraged about.

 - Bulent Yildirim, head of the Turkish Foundation for Human Rights and Freedoms and Humanitarian Relief (IHH), revealed that a second Freedom Flotilla is to set sail soon loaded with tons of humanitarian aid to break the siege on Gaza.

Yildirim told Alkhaleej Online that the foundation started on Thursday the legal procedures to organize the convoy, saying that once it is approved numerous international humanitarian organizations would take part in the convoy.

He said that the convoy would be organized under Turkish army protection, adding that IHH had submitted a request to the Turkish government to provide them, as Turkish citizens, with the needed protection.

IHH and the European campaign along with several Turkish relief organizations had participated in Freedom Flotilla I, which was attacked by the Israeli Navy in international waters on May 31, 2010.

 - Governments do not dictate major policy, major multinational corporations do. We’ve seen this time and time again, and one of the best examples out there is Monsanto. This time, the United States government wants to force GMO seeds on El Salvadorian farmers.

Encouraged by the U.S. Embassy, the Millennium Challenge Corporation had “granted” El Salvador 277 million dollars to “improve El Salvador’s competitiveness and productivity in international markets.” This, however, would not come without certain commitments and obligations, which included a commitment to ensure that the Ministry of Agriculture’s procurement of corn and bean seed would “be consistent with the provisions of the CAFTA-DR (Dominican Republic-Central America-United States Free Trade Agreement).”

- Please take action! We can stop Israel's relentless genocide if enough of us stand up NOW for the people of Gaza. We need to reach a critical mass, to force our governments to stop the killing spree.

The Zionist state launched its "ground invasion" into Gaza more than a week ago, after cutting off electricity to most of the Gaza Strip.

Adopting a 'shoot at anything that moves' policy, they have been razing residential areas to the ground, targeting homes as well as families fleeing on foot in the streets, rescue workers, medical personnel, ambulances, hospitals, the press, mosques and churches, as well as UN schools sheltering thousands of displaced families.

The invading forces are using banned weapons, including white phosphorous, sarin, flechettes and DIME, ensuring as much damage as possible to their victims, and soaring cancer rates in the future.

The ongoing massacre of Gaza is not a "war", but rather Israel's third massacre in six years against a caged and defenseless population, and one more step in the systematic and ongoing genocide of the Palestinian population.

Hundreds of protests against Israel's assault on the people of Gaza have been organized in cities around the world over the next few days.

To find out about a protest in your area, see the calendar of events below.

 - A prominent French lawyer says he has filed a complaint at the International Criminal Court (ICC) on behalf of the Palestinian government against the Israeli army.

Gilles Devers said that the complaint covers war crimes committed by the Israeli army in June and July 2014 in Palestine.

He added that the complaint is valid despite the fact that the Palestinians have yet to sign up to the Hague-based ICC.

According to the French lawyer, Palestine is a non-member observer state at the United Nations and its ICC membership has been delayed only because of political quarrels.

The challenge against the Israeli army at The Hague comes two days after the UN Human Rights Council passed a resolution calling for an independent probe into Israel’s war crimes in Gaza.

The Twitter hashtag #ICC4Israel is trending worldwide right now, evidence that the world's people want the psychopathic and demonic state of "Israel" to face justice this time for its crimes against humanity, which have been ongoing for more than 70 years.

 - I vividly recall the first time I saw Sinéad O’Connor live...  That was 26 years ago. Ever since then, I’ve admired O’Connor as a woman of talent and courage. So I felt a bit hurt when she rejected me in a distinctly twenty-first century manner last month: by blocking me on Twitter.

All I had done was to ask politely that she cancel a gig in Israel.

This morning my admiration was fully restored when I read in the Irish magazine Hot Press that O’Connor had decided to withdraw from her Israel show.

“Nobody with any sanity, including myself, would have anything but sympathy for the Palestinian plight,” she said. “There’s not a sane person on earth who in any way sanctions what the fuck the Israeli authorities are doing.”

- On July 17, 2014 the Sun showed us a face of SUDDEN QUIET. Suddenly, the sunspot number and the sun's x-ray output dropped to their lowest levels in years.

According to Spaceweather.com, this ongoing quiet spell is remarkable - July 17th was the first spotless day in 3 years.

 

Jupiter went into Leo and the Sun suddenly went quiet on the same day:17 July, 2014. Also on that day there were several devastating calamitous events that were reported worldwide - the "ground invasion" of the Gaza Strip began and a Malaysian commercial jet was shot from the sky over the Ukraine.

 - If you only have time to listen to one interview this week, make it this one.

Voice of Palestine's interview yesterday with Joe Catron, a US International Solidarity Movement activist in Gaza, Palestine.

Joe has been filing almost daily eyewitness reports of the carnage from the Israeli bombardment and was one of the volunteers trying to protect Al Wafa hospital last week.

Joe also witnessed and photographed the shooting and killing, at close range, of a wounded civilian by an Israeli sniper on Sunday.

 - In 1974 researchers learned that THC, the active chemical in marijuana, shrank or destroyed brain tumors in test mice. But the DEA quickly shut down the study and destroyed its results, which were never replicated -- until now.

The term medical marijuana took on dramatic new meaning in February, 2000 when researchers in Madrid announced they had destroyed incurable brain tumors in rats by injecting them with THC, the active ingredient in cannabis.

The Madrid study marks only the second time that THC has been administered to tumor-bearing animals; the first was a Virginia investigation 26 years ago. In both studies, the THC shrank or destroyed tumors in a majority of the test subjects.

Most Americans don't know anything about the Madrid discovery. Virtually no major U.S. newspapers carried the story, which ran only once on the AP and UPI news wires, on Feb. 29, 2000.

 - At the moment, the world’s attention is naturally focused on the most camera-friendly elements of the Israel-Hamas conflict: the explosions and the refugees and the many civilian casualties. But simmering beneath the fighting is a longer-term problem for Gazans: They are one of the youngest, most frequently traumatized people on Earth. The psychological effects of the repeated battering they have endured in recent years could linger for decades, posing a huge challenge not just to Gazans themselves but to Israelis, Egyptians, and everyone else concerned with peace in the region.

It will be impossible to know the full extent of the problem until after the end of the fighting, but past research paints a grim picture. A 2004 study conducted during the second intifada found that 32.7 percent of Gazan children between 10 and 19 exhibited signs of severe post-traumatic stress disorder, while 49.2 percent showed signs of moderate PTSD. A full 83.2 percent of all the children sampled had witnessed shooting, while 66.9 percent had seen injured or dead victims of the violence — and that was several rounds of violence ago.
