Efraim Halevi is punching above his weight here but the fact that he was head of Israeli intelligence gives it atleast some credence.
Yeah, true, although currently Halivi is head of the Centre for Strategic and Policy Studies at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem also, which I guess
makes his statement even more worrying than just an Ex-Mossad Chief shooting his mouth off out of haste.
But the real part of his statement that irks me is that he too advocates that we should put our freedoms, liberties and civil rights into the trust
and wisdom of politicians. The Downing Street memo has effectively proved that Blair and Bush lied to us. So should we trust them with our very
freedoms they are meant to be saving from terrorists? ABSOLUTELY NOT!
Right on again, Subz. This man is calling for the unconditional surrender of Civil Liberty unto the Government, like they hadn't slain a lot of
aspects of it already. If we allow this to happen then would that not mean a complete and utter reversal of the fact that the Government are supposed
to serve the people, not the other way round, this would bring a whole new, unpleasant meaning to the term Public service. We have already seen our
leaders drag is into unjustified wars as of late, why should we mindlessly follow them into possibly doing the same again?
World War 3?
Prosecute terrorists through our courts?
I believe that the Governments, and the people behind the curtain, are heavily responsible for several of the large "Terrorist" attacks upon us,
especially September the 11th, therefore I do not think the real perpetrators of these crimes could ever be caught and tried within their own system,
not with the degree of control they maintain over it.
If Mr. Halevi gets his way, we, as the people, will have absolutely no say in ANY matter, not that we even have much of one at the moment. About the
only chance to get heard in Britain is to join the audience over at Question time.
Please excuse me while I go and Vomit ........
