    Whale Oil turned to attacking alleged victim Tania Billingsley and her associates this week. This hypocritical attack based on rumour and insinuation was widely and justifiably criticised.

    But in response some have turned their anger on Canon, somehow holding them responsible because Whale Oil won a Canon sponsored media award prior to this happening.

    Redirecting blame at Canon is as wrong-headed as redirecting blame at victims of sexual assault. One disgraceful agenda doesn’t justify another.

    Whale Oil and Canon

    I see that there is discussion about providing alternative options for gender classification in the census. The discussion paper I went to following a link in Bob McCroskie’s blog suggests they are considering a range of alternative terms, though the current poll on Stuff indicates only one- ‘genderqueer’. Deary me. This is what you come to when you have a navel- gazing 1st world society that seems to have lost its way. If this nonsensical plan were carried through I’d take immense pleasure in ticking ‘genderqueer’ just to stuff up the statistics!!I think quite a few people would register their distaste in a similar fashion.

    I agree, and Canon is not to blame in any way. Attacking them is fruitless and pathetic, however, I do wonder, if the roles were reversed, and it was a leftie blogger who was ‘doing a Whaleoil’ would Slater have not made the same or similar attack? He doesn’t seem to shy from poking the finger at the acquaintances or business associations of the people he targets. I guess what goes around comes around – doesn’t make it right by any means, but when you involve yourself in that game – its going to happen.

    IDF begins ground invasion of Gaza

    “Israeli tanks entered Gaza on Thursday night after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered a ground invasion, a major escalation in a ten-day offensive that has already killed more than 230 Palestinians.

    Witnesses in Gaza reported heavy bombing from jets, warships and artillery stationed along the border, with much of the firing was directed at northern Gaza. The electricity was cut off across a large swathe of the strip, though it was unclear why.”

    Seems disagreeing with someone isn’t the way to change their minds:

    What if the best way to change minds isn’t to tell people why they’re wrong, but to tell them why they’re right? Scientists tried this recently and discovered that agreeing with people can be a surprisingly powerful way to shake up strongly held beliefs.

    A poll on the stuff website said Cunliffe is dragging down the Labour vote. I predict there will be no move to replace him. Labour still has a lot of work to do to put a credible narrative together on what their Government would look like. That must mean some sort of joint platform with the Greens on key policy issues starting with economic policy. David Shearer started With the joint announcement on the electricity market. But on 4-5 key policies the Greens and Labour need to speak with one voice. That will not happen for this election but they might have something in place for 2017. Then the voters can look and see whether a Labour lead Government is worth supporting.

    Why would a victim, having seen her alleged attacker leave the country under diplomatic immunity, make a bee-line for the court of public opinion and thereby jeopardise the chances of extraditing said attacker back here to face a trial in a proper court? You don’t have to be as cynical as Whale to think it might be because there’s not much of an actual case.

    flipper – there are far more victims of violence and sex crimes than there are convictions. That’s an established fact. I’m not saying Billingsley is a victim, I simply don’t know that as I don’t know the facts of the case.

    Neither do those speculating that she is the guilty party have any facts to support their insinuations. Why are you addressing Judith and I and ignoring the attacks on Billingsley and here associates? They seem to have been presumed guilty by Whale Oil and some here.

    Because whilst she is the alleged victim of a sexually motivated attack, she is a definite victim of a smear campaign due to her speaking out about what she perceives to be a matter of mismanagement.

    As I have said before, those who insist on pursuing this smear campaign need to answer first how the alleged victim managed to manipulate the Malaysian government, NZ government Officials and McCully, in order to ensure that the matter became known, and therefore became of public interest. Until you can do that – there is nothing credible you can claim regarding the campaign Whale oil is conducting. Taking the higher ground is one thing, if you can be absolutely sure that if the political interests were reversed, that your party faithfuls would not have also made a fuss over the mismanagement. But we all know that is not the case, and had this happened to a national supporter under a labour government, you’d all be screaming blue bloody murder as well.

    It’s not “victim blaming” to ask why the decision was evidently made that the chance to go on TV and attack McCully and Key was more important than risking any possible extradition because of the alleged attacker being unable to get a fair trial.

    Perhaps you should heed the warning of a man who knows a thing or two.

    However, the rapid deterioration we’re experiencing in the security situation did not come because of the vile murder of Naftali, Eyal and Gil-Ad, may their memories be blessed. The deterioration is first and foremost a result of the illusion that the government’s inaction on every front can actually freeze the situation in place, the illusion that “price tag” is simply a few slogans on the wall and not pure racism, the illusion that everything can be solved with a little more force, the illusion that the Palestinians will accept everything that’s done in the West Bank and won’t respond despite the rage and frustration and the worsening economic situation, the illusion that the international community won’t impose sanctions on us, that the Arab citizens of Israel won’t take to the streets at the end of the day because of the lack of care for their problems, and that the Israeli public will continue submissively to accept the government’s helplessness in dealing with the social gaps that its policies have created and are worsening, while corruption continues to poison everything good, and so on and so on.

    Billingsly could have simply gone straight to a journalist to have her concerns aired. The fact she went to Logie raises the suspicion of political motivation. Logies actions have done nothing to diminish that suspicion. Its quite right that questions are being asked about motivation because of this.

    @ Wiki,

    Also worth noting that other books that were banned at various points in time include what are now considered literary polemics:

    The Grapes of Wrath
    Brave New World
    1984
    The Satanic Verses
    Tragedy and Hope
    Fahrenheit 451

    The Problem we have is that so few people lack the intelligence to see exactly what these books were telling us about our future as they are to dim-witted and/or distracted by bread and circuses.

    Wiki, I don’t regard Obama or Biden as reliable guides to anything, including their own thoughts.

    Moreover, ‘(new) world order’ has a range of meanings from an intended world government/dictatorship to merely a recognition that alliances and the (im)balance of power and disruption around the world continue to change. From the brief extract provided, I suspect Biden in his West Point address meant the latter as part of a wider and quite reasonable point that armies must not only be able to respond to old threats, but also to new ones.

    Have just been listening to Radio Live and heard National Party ‘spin doctor’ Michelle Boag state that Kim Dotcom had no credibility.

    Really Michelle?

    That’s not what Justice Wylie said – when he found (former) ACT MP for Epsom, John Banks, guilty of electoral fraud:

    http://laudafinem.files.wordpress.com/2014/06/banks-reasons-for-verdict-20140605.pdf

    [130] Mr Jones put it to me that Mr Dotcom’s evidence, and that of Mrs Dotcom,
    Mr Tempero and Mr McKavanagh (the “Dotcom witnesses”), was a fiction, and part
    of a larger conspiracy, driven by Mr Dotcom, to try and unseat Mr Banks, destabilise
    the Government, and bring down the present Prime Minister, Mr Key.

    [131] I do not accept Mr Jones’s submissions in this regard:

    (a) First, I watched each of the Dotcom witnesses carefully while they
    gave evidence. I did not notice anything in their demeanour to
    suggest that they were not telling the truth. I considered that each of
    the Dotcom witnesses (other than Mr McKavanagh) was
    straightforward in giving evidence. As I have already noted, with the
    exception of Mr McKavanagh, I consider that they were reliable and
    credible witnesses.

    Mr Dotcom, in particular, was, in my view, a good witness.
    He answered questions about his criminal history frankly and openly.
    He did not obviously seek to “gild the lily” in giving evidence and there
    was no artifice that I could detect.

    ……………………….
    ________________________________________________________________________________________

    I note that Justice Wylie did not mention Michelle Boag in his list of ‘credible’ witnesses?

    ‘Open Letter’ /OIA request to NZ Prime Minister John Key :

    “Upon which International Human Rights Law are you relying to NOT publicly condemn the Israeli State bombing and invasion of Gaza?”
    _________________________________________________________________________________________________

    New Zealand Prime Minister John Key,

    Please be reminded of the following, stated on the NZ Government Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) website, regarding New Zealand’s commitment to the ‘Rule of Law’ – nationally and internationally:

    http://www.mfat.govt.nz/Foreign-Relations/1-Global-Issues/Human-Rights/index.php

    Human Rights

    New Zealand is strongly committed to the protection and promotion of international human rights, as embodied in the Universal Declaration on Human Rights and in the seven core human rights treaties.
    New Zealand seeks to defend and advance international human rights in multilateral human rights fora, focussing on the meetings of the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva and in the Third Committee of the United Nations General Assembly in New York and negotiations of new international human rights instruments.

    New Zealand also focuses on the promotion of human rights in our region and in countries with which we have bilateral relationships, through exchanging views about human rights and providing practical assistance.

    __________________________________________________________________________________________________

    “Whereas it is essential, if man is not to be compelled to have recourse, as a last resort, to rebellion against tyranny and oppression, that human rights should be protected by the rule of law ”

    http://www.un.org/en/documents/udhr/
    __________________________________________________________________________________________________

    http://www.mfat.govt.nz/Treaties-and-International-Law/05-International-Humanitarian-Law/index.php

    International Humanitarian Law

    International humanitarian law is also sometimes described as the “law of armed conflict” or the “laws of war”. It is a framework of rules that restricts the means and methods of warfare and protects people who are not participating in the fighting, in order to limit the effects of armed conflict for humanitarian reasons. International humanitarian law does not regulate when or why a State may use force, or determine whether an armed conflict is legal or illegal, and the rules of international humanitarian law apply equally to all sides regardless of who started the conflict.

    International humanitarian law is made up of a body of treaties. Many of the rules set down in these treaties have become so widely accepted that they are now regarded as customary international law and binding on all States.

    The core international humanitarian law treaties are the four 1949 Geneva Conventions, concluded after World War II, which cover:

    wounded soldiers on the battlefield;
    wounded and shipwrecked at sea;
    prisoners of war;
    civilians under enemy control.

    These four treaties have been universally adopted by all States.
    The Geneva Conventions have been supplemented by two Additional Protocols adopted in 1977 relating to the protection of victims of armed conflicts, and a third Additional Protocol adopted in 2005 specifying an additional emblem that may be used by organisations of the Red Cross. Other important international humanitarian law treaties regulate the types of weapons that can be used in armed conflict, including the 1972 Biological Weapons Convention, the 1980 Conventional Weapons Convention and its five protocols, the 1993 Chemical Weapons Convention, the 1997 Ottawa Convention on anti-personnel mines.

    Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CAT)
    UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC)
    UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities
    These instruments impose obligations upon parties, including requirements for regular reporting on implementation of the treaties.

    Penny, what exactly do you expect Israel to do? Just continue to let bombs be lobbed into their populace and hope Hamas runs out of ammo? Do you think that would work in any country in the world? What if a country were to lob bombs into the middle of Auckland city? Would we do nothing?

    SOmetimes I think you liberals are just idiotic.
    Israel is going out of its way to prevent civilian casualties – dropping leaflets, phoning people before they bomb so they can get out. What other country in the world does that during a war?

    In contrast, Hamas puts women and children in harms way – using them as human shields – and they DON’T CARE about casualties – the more the better, as they can use that as propaganda.

    The Hamas Interior Ministry has asked the media to label ANY deaths as “innocent civilians”.

    The ministry’s guidelines, which it is calling the “Be Aware – Social Media Activist Awareness Campaign,” were issued via an instructional video posted on its official website and via posters published on its Twitter and Facebook pages. Both the video and the posters were also posted on the ministry’s social media accounts and forums.

    [...]

    Following are excerpts from the guidelines:
    “Anyone killed or martyred is to be called a civilian from Gaza or Palestine, before we talk about his status in jihad or his military rank. Don’t forget to always add ‘innocent civilian’ or ‘innocent citizen’ in your description of those killed in Israeli attacks on Gaza.

    “Begin [your reports of] news of resistance actions with the phrase ‘In response to the cruel Israeli attack,’ and conclude with the phrase ‘This many people have been martyred since Israel launched its aggression against Gaza.’ Be sure to always perpetuate the principle of ‘the role of the occupation is attack, and we in Palestine are fulfilling [the role of] the reaction.’

    “Beware of spreading rumors from Israeli spokesmen, particularly those that harm the home front. Be wary regarding accepting the occupation’s version [of events]. You must always cast doubts on this [version], disprove it, and treat it as false.

    “Avoid publishing pictures of rockets fired into Israel from [Gaza] city centers. This [would] provide a pretext for attacking residential areas in the Gaza Strip. Do not publish or share photos or video clips showing rocket launching sites or the movement of resistance [forces] in Gaza.

    “To the administrators of news pages on Facebook: Do not publish close-ups of masked men with heavy weapons, so that your page will not be shut down [by Facebook] on the claim that you are inciting violence. In your coverage, be sure that you say: ‘The locally manufactured shells fired by the resistance are a natural response to the Israeli occupation that deliberately fires rockets against civilians in the West Bank and Gaza’…”

    http://www.memri.org/report/en/0/0/0/0/0/0/8076.htm

    Don’t be a sucker, Penny.
    Here are some of the REAL statistics about the conflict.

    So here are the most accurate statistics as of Tuesday at noon:

    According to (initial) ITIC information, the distribution of those killed is as follows:

    1) 72 terrorist operatives:

    A. 35 Hamas operatives(most of them from its military-terrorist wing)

    B. 27 PIJ operatives

    C. Ten operatives from other terrorist organizations

    2) 80 non-involved Palestinians

    3) 41 Palestinians whose identity still cannot be ascertained.

    Gaza under siege: naming the dead
    Palestinian death toll continues to rise since Israel launched its “Operation Protective Edge”.
    Last updated: 17 Jul 2014 19:59

    Israel’s aerial offensive began on July 8 [AP]

    Israel has hit more than 1,000 targets in the densely populated Gaza Strip, in attacks it says target Hamas military infrastructure. Civilian buildings have been hit.

    Hundreds of rockets have also been launched from Gaza into Israel.

    Some rockets have reached Tel Aviv, but Israel’s Iron Dome defence system intercepted most of them.

    Slater needs the alleged victim to contact him so she can tell him the details of the crime – which he can then publish, and then claim that the trial can’t go ahead because his big fat blabbing mouth has ruined the chance of any fair trial. It is in his best interests to ensure the trial never takes place.

    As it stand, the alleged victim has not spoken about the details of the event, and that seems to really irk the Whale, because without that, he has NOTHING, ZILCH, ZIPPO! (except his own imagination of course).

    Still waiting for him to explain how the alleged victim, who he claims orchestrated this whole thing because she is a leftie and a feminist, manged to get the co-operation of the Malaysian government, our government officials, Mr McCully, and the NZ Police,, not to mention the diplomat himself.

    But Whale Oil has no idea what else there is to the story either

    Whaleoil has no idea (Full Stop).

    He is desperately trying to stitch his credibility together and make a story where there isn’t one.

    The best he can come up with is that the alleged victim was motivated to complain about the governments handling because she has contacts in the Green Party – in doing so he totally forgets that if there hadn’t been a stuff up by government officials in the first place, there would not have been the opportunity for the victim to complain.

    In order to believe Whaleoil, you’d have to believe that McCully was complicit in the entire thing and organised the stuff up, just so the alleged victim could make a case against the government.

    In short, Whale oil should run for the conservatives, him and colin could have cups of tea and talk conspiracy theories.

    You mean “alleged victim”, do you not?
    The pejorative “victim” label indicates a trial, and an outcome that establishes the validity of the allegations.

    In some cases there are alleged victims. But in others there are victims regardless of whether there’s a known perpetrator or a conviction, For example:

    A 16-year-old girl was picked up off an Auckland street and sexually and physically assaulted for three hours, police say.

    The girl was walking near the Glen Eden shops about 11pm last Friday when she accepted a ride from a man in a car.

    He drove to the carpark of Ken Maunder Park off Binsted Road in New Lynn, where he sexually and physically assaulted her.

    He then drove to Victor Street near Great North Road in Avondale where the physical and sexual assault continued.

    He eventually left the girl at the main carpark of Auckland Zoo off Motions Road in Western Springs about 2am.

    Detective Sergeant Scott Armstrong of Waitemata police said the girl had needed medical treatment. She was being supported by her family, police and support services.

    http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11295741

    Sounds like there is definitely a victim. Sure she seems to have been very unwise, but that still does not excuse the actions of the attacker at all.

    It’s also fairly clear there’s a victim in murder cases prior to a conviction.

    I agree wf.

    Blaming men for rape is one thing, but a conseqence of that being done repeatedly by the media is that ‘young/ignorant’ women may take more risks – and become a target. “It’s the man’s fault” is not a matter of personal security that should be installed in women. Walking the streets alone at night is not risk free – just ask some males.

    I see this with driving from time to time – mostly in carparks and roundabouts – young women drive with the attitude that ‘I’m doing nothing wrong’ and don’t drive defensively. I then see them involved in minor accidents that they could have avoided. —– one girl could’ve avoided an accident while turning at an intersection as someone started to cross into her lane —– she simply needed to get off the accelerator—– instead she just kept going at the same speed and got side swiped. My wife used to drive like that – and had all the dents to prove it – school carparks ect. It’s called arrogance.

    Sometimes it’s called ‘reckless behaviour’.

    Seen this post by Noam Chomsky?

    Written back in 9 November 2012 – it’s very helpful as a backgrounder for those who want a brief summary about what’s really happening in Gaza:

    http://truth-out.org/opinion/item/12635-noam-chomsky-my-visit-to-gaza-the-worlds-largest-open-air-prison
    Noam Chomsky: My Visit to Gaza, the World’s Largest Open-Air Prison
    truth-out.org

    Even a single night in jail is enough to give a taste of what it means to be under the total control of some external force.
    And it hardly takes more than a day in Gaza to appreciate what it must be like to try to survive in the world’s largest open-air prison, where some 1.5 million people on a roughly 140-square-mile strip of land are subject to random terror and arbitrary punishment, with no purpose other than to humiliate and degrade.

    Such cruelty is to ensure that Palestinian hopes for a decent future will be crushed, and that the overwhelming global support for a diplomatic settlement granting basic human rights will be nullified. The Israeli political leadership has dramatically illustrated this commitment in the past few days, warning that they will “go crazy” if Palestinian rights are given even limited recognition by the U.N.

    This threat to “go crazy” (“nishtagea”) – that is, launch a tough response – is deeply rooted, stretching back to the Labor governments of the 1950s, along with the related “Samson Complex”: If crossed, we will bring down the Temple walls around us.

    Thirty years ago, Israeli political leaders, including some noted hawks, submitted to Prime Minister Menachem Begin a shocking report on how settlers on the West Bank regularly committed “terrorist acts” against Arabs there, with total impunity.

    Disgusted, the prominent military-political analyst Yoram Peri wrote that the Israeli army’s task, it seemed, was not to defend the state, but “to demolish the rights of innocent people just because they are Araboushim (a harsh racial epithet) living in territories that God promised to us.”

    Gazans have been singled out for particularly cruel punishment.

    Thirty years ago, in his memoir “The Third Way,” Raja Shehadeh, a lawyer, described the hopeless task of trying to protect fundamental human rights within a legal system designed to ensure failure, and his personal experience as a Samid, “a steadfast one,” who watched his home turned into a prison by brutal occupiers and could do nothing but somehow “endure.”
