1-Dozens injured in the village of Bil'in with cases of suffocation and fainting
07 Feb 2010
Date: 5/2/2010 3:30

Dozens of residents of Bil'in, neighboring villages, international solidarity activis, and peace-loving israelis participated in a weekly march organized by the popular committee against the wall. The march started from the village's main square after Friday prayers and echoed national symbols aimed at reconciliation, reunification, while directly confronting the Israeli occupation. After the arrival of the march participants at the western gate of the wall, a shower of rubber coated metal bullets, tear gas, and sound bombs was directed against them. The popular committee's cameraman, Hamde Abu Rahma, was wounded as well as Ashraf Abu Rahma (from a tear gas canister) and an Icelandic solidarity activist (from sound bomb shrapnel). The army then tried to suprise protesters at the back of the march with special forces, who tried to hunt down young men in the village but were unsuccessful. Instead, their presence led to violent clashes in the vacinity and tear gas reigned down by cars in the same area where recently freed Popular Committee Cameraman Hamde was arrested 2 days prior as he covered the arrest of Ibrahim Burnat. Hamde was later released without charge.

Deepening Debt Crisis: The Bernanke Reappointment: Be Afraid, Very Afraid
06 Feb 2010
"The prospect is for U.S. consumers to be hit by a triple whammy. They must pay higher prices for the goods they buy as the dollar declines, making imports more expensive. And the government will be spending less on the economy’s circular flow as a result of Pres. Obama’s three-year spending freeze to slow the budget deficits. Meanwhile, states and cities are raising taxes to balance their own budgets as tax receipts fall. Consumes and indeed the entire economy must run more deeply into debt simply to break even (or else see living standards eroded).

To Mr. Bernanke, economic recovery requires resuscitating the Goldman Sachs squid that Matt Taibbi so artfully has described as being affixed to the face of humanity, duly protected by the Fed. The banks will lend more to keep the debt pyramid growing to enable consumers, businesses and local government to avoid contraction.

All this will enrich the banks – as long as the debts can be paid. And if they can’t be paid, will the government bail them out all over again? Or will it “be different” this time around?"
