Wikileaks Publishes UAF's E-mail List

One of my favourite websites is Wikileaks. This is the site that released the BNP's membership list and is a source of some fascinating secret material.

Now it has released Unite Against Fascism's email contacts list - which, for the lack of security that this represents, may cause some serious recriminations within UAF.

More helpfully, in April Wikileaks published a document from the CIA's Open Source Center that translated a 186 page secret Israeli Ministry of Defense database, which showed the full extent of illegal Israeli settlements in Gaza and the West Bank. According to Haaretz, "an analysis of the data reveals that, in the vast majority of the settlements - about 75 percent - construction, sometimes on a large scale, has been carried out without the appropriate permits or contrary to the permits that were issued,", and "the database also shows that, in more than 30 settlements, extensive construction of buildings and infrastructure (roads, schools, synagogues, yeshivas and even police stations) has been carried out on private lands belonging to Palestinian West Bank residents."

Take a look: a PDF of the document is available here.
