Israel's secretive spy organization members claim were directed to spy on Palestinians for political purposes, not national security

Last Friday, 43 veteran and reserve members of Israel's secretive spy organization, Unit 8200, claimed they'd been directed to spy on Palestinians for coercion purposes.
The group signed an open letter of protest to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and to the head of the Israeli army, accusing the spy agency of targeting innocent Palestinians and collecting data for political purposes, not national security.
Dubbed the "refusniks," the veterans declared that they had a "moral duty" to no longer "take part in the state's actions against Palestinians."
The source of much of the Israeli data may be the U.S. National Security Agency.
Author and journalist James Bamford interviewed NSA leaker Edward Snowden in Moscow this summer. Bamford tells NPR's Arun Rath that Snowden was eager to discuss documents that show a U.S. agreement to routinely share information with Israel and Unit 8200.

C. Chachage: Wazanzibari siyo Waskochi

Chambi Chachage

 Matokeo ya kura ya maoni huko Uskochi yameacha gumzo barani Afrika. Kuanzia Abuja hadi Arusha Waafrika tunajiuliza kuna nini cha kujifunza. Hapo Mji Mkongwe, Zanzibar hiyo ndiyo habari ya mjini.

Rafiki yangu mwenye uzalendo wa Kizanzibari amenishtusha kwa kunitumia ujumbe usemao “naona umefurahi…haya furahia” baada ya kumtumia taarifa kuhusu matokeo hayo na kuuliza kiutani: “Vipi Zanzibar/Unguja/Pemba/Tumbatu?” Kutokana na sababu za kihistoria – historia binafsi na ya jumla – naipenda sana Uskochi. Nimefurahi wamepitia mchakato huu muhimu ambao inasemekana, pamoja na kushindwa katika kura, utawaletea mabadiliko mengi yatakayoongeza uhuru wao ndani ya Muungano.

Fundisho nililolipata ni kuwa japo Wazanzibari sio Waskochi hata wao wana haki ya kupiga kura kama wenzao na watakapopata fursa hiyo tusishangae maamuzi yao kisa baadhi yao/yetu tumekuwa tukiwasemea kuwa wanataka hiki au kile. Pia yamenipa moyo kuwa sio jambo la kushangaza kupinga muundo (dhaifu) wa Serikali Tatu kati ya eneo moja kubwa na eneo moja dogo ilhali nasimamia hoja yangu kuwa ‘Zanzibar ni Zaidi ya Nchi’. Haishangazi kwani Muungano wetu bado unuweza kuongeza uhuru zaidi kwa Zanzibar.

Wapo wanaoshangazwa na Waskochi kupiga kura ya kukataa kujitenga na Uingereza. Hapa tunaongelea sehemu ambayo imekuwa na historia ndefu ya uzalendo wa Kiskochi toka enzi za William Wallace, yule shujaa wao maarufu ambaye Mel Gibson alimuigiza katika filamu yake ya Braveheart, yaani, ‘Moyojasiri’.

Filamu hiyo inaanza na maneno mazito ya Mskochi dhidi ya Muingereza ambayo kwa tafsiri ya haraka haraka yanasomeka hivi kwa Kiswahili: “Nitakueleza habari za William Wallace. Wanahistoria wa

Jamaa jasiri! Apambana na kumkamata Anaconda aliyekula mbwa wa jirani


Mtu mmoja huko French Guiana amepambana na kufanikiwa kumzidi nguvu na kumkamata nyoka mkubwa duniani, Anaconda, mwenye urefu a futi 17 baada ya nyoka huyo kumla mbwa wa jirani.

Jamaa huyo mwenye umri wa miaka 39 akisaidiana na marafiki na mwanaye mdogo, walimkamata Anaconda huyo na kumziba macho, kisha kumlaza kwenye bafu lake kabla ya kumtupa kwenye mto usiotumiwa na watu, ulioko umbali wa maili sita kutoka kwenye eneo wanaloishi.
