Will that be debit, credit or Bitcoin?

Would you like to pay for your morning coffee with your credit card or your bitcoin wallet?

If San Francisco-based start-up Shift Payments has its way, you’ll soon be able to switch from real money to digital currency when paying with a single card.

The company is beta testing 100 cards with friends and family members. It allows users to make purchases with accounts from Coinbase—a bitcoin exchange—and Ripple—a digital payment exchange protocol that can support real and digital currency.

While the card does not currently access bank or credit accounts (just bitcoin accounts for now), co-founder Meg Nakamura says Shift Payments is trying to make that happen soon.

“We are having conversations with U.S. banks to see if we can get them comfortable,” she said. “They are very, very interested. It’s just a timing issue. So we are building out the product with the partners we have right now.”

‘Children killed in their sleep’: Israeli artillery fire hits UN school, killing at least 20

(from mondoweiss.net)

Israeli military fire hit a United Nations-run school in Gaza today, killing at least 20 people and injuring an estimated 90 people. The school under attack, called the Abu Hussein girls’ elementary school, is located in the densely-populated Jabaliya refugee camp.

The United Nations Relief Works and Agency (UNRWA), the group that serves Palestinian refugees, issued a stern statement placing the blame for the attack on the Israeli army.

Last night, children were killed as they slept next to their parents on the floor of a classroom in a UN designated shelter in Gaza. Children killed in their sleep; this is an affront to all of us, a source of universal shame. Today the world stands disgraced,” said UNRWA Secretary General Pierre Krähenbühl. “We have visited the site and gathered evidence. We have analysed fragments, examined craters and other damage. Our initial assessment is that it was Israeli artillery that hit our school, in which 3,300 people had sought refuge.”

Almost 70 years and NOTHING has changed

“Naturally, the common people don’t want war, neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany.  That is understood.  But the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.  That is easy.  All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.  It works the same way in any country.”

~Hermann Goering (during the Nuremberg Trials)

U.S. Only Country of 47 to Vote against Investigating Possible Human Rights Violations during Israeli Occupation of Gaza

(from allgov.com)

The United States has once again demonstrated its steadfast loyalty to Israel, this time casting the lone “no” vote on a United Nations resolution authorizing an investigation into alleged human rights abuses in Gaza.

American support for Israel has been tested during the recent military invasion of the Palestinian territory, which has seen hundreds of civilians—including many children—killed in the fighting.

But the Obama administration stuck by the Israeli government when Palestine called for a UN probe of reported violations of international humanitarian and human rights laws in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem. The resolution passed the UN Human Rights Council with 29 nations in favor and 17 abstentions. The only country to oppose the plan was the U.S.

In addition to condemning the “widespread, systematic and gross violations of international human rights and fundamental freedoms” caused by Israeli military operations, the measure “condemned all violence against civilians wherever it occurred, including the killing of two Israeli civilians as a result of rocket fire.”

The resolution further calls for an immediate ceasefire, for Israel to immediately reopen the Gaza Strip, and for nations to provide humanitarian aide to the Palestinian people.

More than 1,000 Palestinians have been killed in Gaza and thousands injured since the invasion began on July 7, along with 45 Israelis, according to news reports.
