Golan: Israel troops fire on pro-Palestinian protesters
Israeli soldiers have opened fired on pro-Palestinian protesters in Syria as they marched on the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.
Israel had vowed to prevent a repeat of a similar march last month, in which hundreds of people had managed to breach the border fence.
Unconfirmed reports on Syrian state TV said 14 people had been killed and more than 200 wounded.
The protesters were marking the 44th anniversary of the 1967 Mid-East war.

This video is called “Sacred Lands – Eastern California” by Mindrelic.
“Shot over five days in various locations in eastern California including Death valley, Owens valley, Bristlecone forest, and Mono lake during the week of October 18th, 2010.”
I never cease to be in awe of the beauty and wonder of this amazing planet that we are slowly but surely destroying (here too).
Mindrelic has many amazing videos available at VIMEO to view, plus you can watch them on a bigger screen and in HD.
I just love how Stephen Colbert slices through to the heart of any issue, and lays bare the absurdity, and the utter hypocrisy, for all to see.
From Colbert Nation:
Republicans show their Tea Party base that they’re against raising the debt ceiling, while reassuring Wall Street that it’s political theater.
This is our daily open thread. what’s on your mind?
