Paypal, MasterCard, Visa still allow payments to illegal Israeli settlements, but not to WikiLeaks


by Larry Geller

At this stage WikiLeaks has breached no international law and no laws of any country, but Mastercard, Visa and PayPal have all blacklisted it. All three continue to enable the support of settlements that are in breach of international law, in some cases of Israeli law, and in defiance of US policy on settlements under successive Republican and Democrat administrations.   [crikey.com, Funding illegal Israeli settlements?

NoPayPalThat’s why you see a “no Paypal” logo at the top of this blog. It’s harder to do without the two credit cards, though.

I heard on Colbert (or was it the Daily Show?), that those companies are also willing to help make payments to the Klan. But I guess Julian Assange crossed some sort of ethical "bridge too far" by revealing for all to see the true workings of the US military and diplomatic machine.
 


Those reports have been circulating on the web since the cutoffs. It's clear that Assange has been put in the crosshairs.

Requiring those Captcha codes at least temporarily, in the hopes that it quells the flood of comment spam I've been receiving.
