As reported by mainstream Israeli news outlet Haaretz, the victim, 42-year-old Talal Siad, was having a celebratory Eid al-Fitr family day with his wife and 5 children at Meymadion Water Park on Thursday, when they witnessed Tel Aviv police repeatedly spraying pepper into the eyes of a teenager on the ground.
The teen victim had been involved in an altercation which occurred between some families at the park. Israeli police intervened, but witnesses say the officers used “unnecessary force.”
Purposefully, because the researchers could not perform such illegal experimentation on Americans, and therefore chose to do so on foreign peoples.
Secretly, because the U.S. government did not want Americans, nor anyone in the international community, to learn about the immoral experimentations.
As reported by Rob Stein for The Washington Post, at the helm of the Gutemala experiments was the infamous Dr. Taliaferro Clark who, in the 1930’s conducted similar illegal and immoral syphilis experimentation on African-American males for the notorious Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment.
Says Stein, the tests in Guatemala were carried out using many methods, including direct injection of syphilis into open wounds, and “putting infectious material on the cervixes of uninfected prostitutes” who were then brought to men in order to infect the men, as well, through intercourse.
As reported by Al Jazeera, thousands of weapons are seized by L.A. Police every year. In a joint effort between local businesses and the LAPD, these weapons are destroyed, melted down for more productive, less dangerous use in roads, buildings and bridges.
It’s called Project Isaiah, named for the biblical passage which instructs men to “beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks.”

It’s one of many such Islamophobic acts being carried out by groups of Americans – including attacks on seven mosques across the U.S. in the past two weeks alone.
As reported by CNN, Muslims are being forced to celebrate their holiest month, the month of Ramadan, away from their places of worship.
“I think there are a few people who don’t like anybody,” says Iftikhar Ali, president of a Joplin, Missouri mosque which was attacked and burned to the ground last week. “They don’t like a different color than their color, or different religions.”
Ali, along with countless American Muslims, are being pushed by violent hate crimes to steer clear of mosques, worshipping instead in convention centers guarded by law enforcement officers.
“So, what?” a portion of Americans may think. “Small price to pay, compared to 9-11!”
Your clothes talk to you, tell you when last they were worn, which accessories you wore with them, and when they’re feeling wounded (time for an alteration) or a little grubby (time for a trip to the cleaners).
Your wardrobe speaks to you via microchips or bar codes, which you scan with a small device that informs you of exactly what it is feeling.
But your wardrobe is not the only thing that talks.
In fact, everything you own now speaks.
Your coffeemaker commiserates about internal issues it may be having. Your refrigerator tattles when certain perishables are entertaining mold. Your portable devices nudge you about a plethora of extraneous apps which can be consolidated, then shows you exactly how it plans to do that upon your approval.
Every aspect of your daily life has become “smart.”
Historically, a question posed only about women marrying male breadwinners.
But now, this same question applies to men, as well.
Because, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 40% of American women are now the breadwinners of the family. And this, as reported by The Wall Street Journal, creates a new strain of marital tension between “an alpha woman and a beta man.”
The 1989 Tiananmen Square protest ended in military suppression resulting in the deaths of hundreds to thousands of protesters. An exact number of the victims has never been released by the Chinese government.
As reported by Reuters, June 4, 2012 saw Chinese internet crackdowns on specific search terms such as “six-four” (for June 4th) and “23” (for 23rd anniversary), as well as more obscure terms such as “never forget.”
