Israel confiscates solar panels supplying all power for Palestinian village it has not connected to grid for 50 years

The Palestinian village of Jub a-Dib lies southeast of Bethlehem in the West Bank. It was established in 1929 and is currently home to some 160 people. In the past, residents subsisted on farming and shepherding, but today the village relies mainly on young residents who work in Israel. In addition to homes, the village has a grocery store, a sewing shop, a mosque and a kindergarten. A mobile medical clinic visits the village once a week.

Israel does not deny the legality of the village but has never drawn up an outline plan for it, as with other Palestinian villages in Area C. Israel even rejected a plan prepared by the joint council of Jub a-Dib and the neighboring village of Za’tara. Since the 1980s, the residents of Jub a-Dib have filed several requests with the Civil Administration to hook the village up to the power grid. All were rejected on the grounds that the village does not have an outline plan.

Israel’s Ever-More Sadistic Reprisals – $2.3m Lawsuit Against Children Under Seven

By Jonathan Cook: Israel’s ever-more sadistic reprisals help shore up a sense of victimhoodWhen Israel passed a new counter-terrorism law last year, Ayman Odeh, a leader of the country’s large minority of Palestinian citizens, described its draconian measures as colonialism’s “last gasp”. He said: “I see … the panic of the French at the end of the occupation of Algeria.”

The panic and cruelty plumbed new depths last week, when Israeli officials launched a $2.3 million lawsuit against the family of Fadi Qanbar, who crashed a truck into soldiers in Jerusalem in January, killing four. He was shot dead at the scene.

Oregon Decriminalizes Cocaine, Meth, Heroin And More

The new law reduces possession of illegal drugs to misdemeanors rather than felonies as long as the person in possession does not have prior drug convictions.

Ecstasy (MDMA) pills are shown. MDMA is among six drugs now decriminalized under Oregon’s new law.

Oregon’s state legislature just reduced penalties for drug possession in a bill also intended to reduce racial profiling by law enforcement agencies.

H.B. 2355 passed both the House and Senate last week and reduces possession of illegal drugs to misdemeanors rather than felonies as long as the person in possession does not have prior drug convictions. According to a press release issued on July 7 by Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum, the bill provides for “the reduction of penalties for lower level drug offenders. The bill also reduces the maximum penalty for Class A misdemeanors by one day to avoid mandatory deportation for misdemeanants.”

It is Time For Change

“I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional Love will have the final word in reality”. – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (1929-1968)

We at Prepare for Change believe Dr. King.

We are discovering that the current system has failed.   We need a new one. And we are getting one.   

There is nothing to be afraid of, because we will move from a society of lack and scarcity to one based on abundance, prosperity, cooperation and unconditional love.

In truth, we are all having a crisis of consciousness.    We have forgotten the symbiotic relationship that exists within all of us but we are starting to remember that our integrity interdepends on everything else in our world.

New Study Links Militarization Of Police To More People Killed

The study found that twice as many people are more likely to die in counties that receive an influx in military equipment.
Police officers watch the neighborhood as some buildings are set on fire after the announcement of the grand jury decision Monday, Nov. 24, 2014, in Ferguson, Mo. A grand jury has decided not to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in the death of Michael Brown, the unarmed, black 18-year-old whose fatal shooting sparked sometimes violent protests.

Black Lives Matter activists protesting police violence and the killing of Michael Brown were met with heavily armed officers during the Ferguson protests in 2014. Indigenous people and environmental activists protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline faced a similar scene in 2016 when militarized law enforcement used violent tactics against the peaceful demonstrators.

Scenes of heavily armed police forces are becoming more common across the country. New research from the Washington Post finds that this militarization results in more individuals killed each year by law enforcement. The study found that twice as many people are more likely to die in counties that receive an influx in military equipment. Additional research conducted in 2016 also found that police are more likely to be attacked when they are militarized, which raises the question of how beneficial it is to pad police forces with military-grade weaponry.

Border Wall a ‘Deathblow’ to 93 Species

A new report from the Center for Biological Diversity, an environmentalist group, claims that President Trump’s proposed border wall would be a deathblow to dozens of animal and plant species.

“The wall and concurrent border-enforcement activities are a serious human-rights disaster, but the wall will also have severe impacts on wildlife and the environment, leading to direct and indirect habitat destruction,” says the report, A Wall in the Wild.

The report identified 93 imperiled, threatened, or endangered species which have some habitat in the 2,134,792 acres of land within 50 miles of the border which could be affected by the construction of the border wall.

The World As We Know It Has Changed And There Is No Going Back

Just over four years ago, we passed a portal to the unknown. A place where human consciousness has never been. 

There were doubters and skeptics regarding the process of ascension, but it is here… it is now and there is no going back. The new energy is all-encompassing, pervasive and undeniable, even to those who deny it.

At no other time in the history of this planet has human consciousness been higher than it is right now.

The Earth and its inhabitants are now on a course to change the nature of human populations to such an extent, that societies will be unrecognizable in less than 50 years and there is absolutely nothing that can stop it.

The New World Order should more accurately be called the Deep State.

Forget the New World Order, Here’s Who Really Runs the World

For decades, extreme ideologies on both the left and the right have clashed over the conspiratorial concept of a shadowy secret government often called the New World Order pulling the strings on the world’s heads of state and captains of industry.

The phrase New World Order is largely derided as a sophomoric conspiracy theory entertained by minds that lack the sophistication necessary to understand the nuances of geopolitics. But it turns out the core idea — one of deep and overarching collusion between Wall Street and government with a globalist agenda — is operational in what a number of insiders call the “Deep State.”

War On Drugs Killed More People In 2016 Than US Troops Killed In Vietnam War

For the first time in US history, more Americans have died of drug overdoses in a single year than all those killed in the Vietnam War. The drug war has been exposed as a deadly and violent failure and the federal government shows no signs of backing down.

For the first time in U.S. History, more Americans died in 2016 of drug overdoses than were killed in the Vietnam War. Let that sink in.

Last year’s death toll in the War on Drugs was 59,000 killed, while during the entire Vietnam War, 1955 to 1975, 58,220 American service members’ lives were lost. And, thanks to the immoral and futile police approach to the drug problem, there appears to be no hope in sight for the tide to change.
