Europe’s economic war on Israel

When it comes to dealing with the increasing calls to boycott, divest from and sanction Israel, the United States and Europe are moving in two opposite directions.

Last week, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley signed into law legislation that bars public entities from conducting business with companies that discriminate against Israel. It’s the first of its kind, though other states are likely to follow suit.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

But of course it was okay when Germany was the target!

Israel murders 4 children playing on beach, refuses to admit it's at fault

Mistaking boys playing in a Gaza beach area for Hamas fighters and firing two missiles at them, killing four, is a tragic accident and not a reason to press criminal charges, an Israeli military magistrate’s office ruled.

Two weeks before Iran nuclear deal deadline, Israeli delegation to head to Washington

An Israeli delegation headed by National Security Adviser Yossi Cohen will arrive in Washington on Monday for a final round of talks with senior U.S. officials over the deal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Every time I see Israeli and US officials ratcheting up their "Frequent Government Flying Miles" between Tel Aviv and DC, I get very nervous.

The US has stated certain provisions of the deal which the Iranian officials have denied agreeing to, which has to make this phase of negotiations particularly awkward.

The Israeli government wants the deal to go nowhere, and will probably be pulling out all the stops to guarantee that it cannot go forward. Or, perhaps, the US in telling the world that Iran has agreed to inspection of ALL its military installations (which it has not) has already scotched the deal outright, which may have been the objective all along; to appear to be the voice of sweet reasonableness, only to tack on something at the end of negotiations to which the Iranian delegation cannot agree at all.

Without this deal, the Middle East may be in for a particularly bloody summer this year.

Activists to shut down Israeli arms factory in Gaza war anniversary protest

Israeli defense contractor Elbit Systems’ UK factory will become the target of a protest to mark the anniversary of the Gaza conflict in July.

Anti-arms trade campaigners will join forces with students unions and pro-Palestinian groups in a bid to shut down the factory, which they say manufactures drones.

Activists occupied the same factory in Shenstone, near Birmingham, last year, causing it to close down for two days and reportedly cost Elbit over £100,000 in damages.

Is This The Most BIZARRE Thing Israel’s Netanyahu Has Ever Said?!

The recently re-elected Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu has accused activists who have launched boycotts of Israeli products of ‘hypocrisy’.

He said that, “they boycott Israel but they refuse to boycott Isis. That tells you everything you want to know about the [boycott, divestment and sanctions] movement”.

Treatment of East Jerusalem Palestinians: Profile of Israeli Viciousness

Longstanding Israeli policy leaves East Jerusalem Palestinians deeply impoverished, viciously persecuted and denied fundamental rights everyone deserves.

A Rapprochement Or Just Wishful Thinking?

Iranian people have no problem with a rapprochement with the United States...…?Iran could prove to be a powerful strategic partner to the United States, as long as its independence and regional influence are not threatened.

While Mr. Obama had, realistically speaking, no better alternative in choosing the timing for his administration’s foreign policy reorientation, a meaningful follow-through to implement his vision after his term in office expires would need a new Chief Executive with similar convictions; and, as things appear now, that prospect seems somewhat in doubt.

The current jockeying by potential candidates for the 2016 presidential elections is a perfect example of how true national interests are sacrificed for the sake of personal gains.

Israel razes Palestinian land in Wadi Fuqeen to prepare for new Jewish squatters project

The Israeli Wehrmacht on 11 June razed Palestinian-owned agricultural land in the village of Wadi Fuqeen, west of Bethlehem, to pave the way for an expansion of nearby Jewish squatter colonies, the Palestinian news agency WAFA reports.

According to the head of the village council, Ahmad Sokar, Israeli Wehrmacht troops, accompanied by bulldozers, arrived in the early morning of 11 June and razed nearly five acres of land located between the illegal Jewish squatter colonies of Beitar Illit and Tzur Hadassah.>>

Diplomats: EU has Israel sanctions ready, and Uncle Sam may not be able to help

Israel wishes to delay the signing of a nuclear deal between world powers and Iran, but not solely because such an agreement would be dangerous to the Jewish State.

The concern is that immediately following such an agreement, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict will become the UN Security Council's and European Union's top priority, and the international community will be freed up to deal with the party it sees as responsible for the stagnation in the peace process - Israel.

This is the widely-held assumption in off-the-record conversations among diplomatic sources in New York and in Washington. "A diplomatic attack against Israel is expected soon that will surprise even the pessimists in Jerusalem," a senior Western diplomat told The Jerusalem Post's Hebrew-language sister publication, Ma'ariv. "In the Security Council, in western capitals and at EU headquarters, they are just waiting for the Iran deal to be signed and for it to be approved by the American Congress."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good reason for Israel to set off a dirty bomb in the US and blame Iran for it!

Netanyahu cabinet members reject two-state solution; call for annexation of occupied territories

“I negate the idea of a two state-solution,” Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely said. As Israel’s chief foreign relations official, Hotovely is responsible for representing Israel if negotiations with the Palestinians were to resume. She spoke at length claiming Palestinian actions over recent months to boycott Israel at FIFA, and their refusal to recognize Israel as a Jewish state show the Palestinians are in no mood for a peace deal. They “want to put Israel alongside al-Qaeda,” she said.’

ISRAELI ATTEMPTS TO SILENCE THE TRUTH

Set up by a group of academics, lawyers and politicians more than 25 years ago, the NGO – whose name means “in the image of” and is a synonym in Hebrew for human dignity – has at times portrayed itself as the conscience of the nation.

But legislation being proposed by Israel’s new right-wing government threatens to severely limit the work of B’Tselem and scores of other Israeli NGOs that receive millions of dollars each year in donations from foreign governments and foundations.

While the legislation is in draft form, Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked of the ultra-nationalist Jewish Home party says she is determined to crack down on those who take foreign money and then criticize Israel, accusing the NGOs of “eroding the legitimacy of Israel to exist as a Jewish and democratic state.”

Cybersecurity firm says spying campaign targeted Iran talks

The firm, Kaspersky, said the malware was so sophisticated that it must have been created by a government. Citing former U.S. intelligence officials, The Wall Street Journal attributed the spying to Israel, which opposes the emerging nuclear deal being hammered out by the U.S., Russia, several other European countries and Iran. Negotiators hope to clinch an agreement by the end of the month to curb Iran's nuclear activity for a decade in exchange for billions of dollars in sanctions relief.

Israel’s systematic abuse of the rights of the child

Marianne Azizi describes the systematic, state-approved and financially-motivated abuse of the rights of the child in Israel, which breaks up families, institutionalises children, and enforces the forced adoption and fostering of children.

THE UN WAS RIGHT! ISRAEL DOES NOT ABUSE CHILDREN, IT JUST MURDERS THEM!

Throughout its unglamorous history, the UN issued many scandalous reports and adopted many scandalous resolutions reflecting lack of justice and absence of moral honesty.This ever-existing symptom also reflected western hegemony over the international organization.

However, none of these reports and resolutions seems more scandalous than this week’s report which kept Israel off the List of Shame, which includes states and entities that abuse children.

This particular report is manifestly scandalous precisely because Israel is probably one of the most obscene abusers of children under the sun.

Indeed, there are a few countries in this world that can be compared to Israel in this respect.

Israel Seeks to Criminalize Criticism

As a consequence, Israel’s credibility with an increasing number of people in the West has eroded. This erosion led to a relatively short period of time in the early 2000s when the Zionists attempted to counter the situation by engaging with their critics in public debate. However, the majority of time they lost.

Israel’s barbarous behavior on the ground, combined with the fact that their historical version of events was shown to be full of holes, condemned them to an increasingly weak defensive position. This proved to be intolerable to the Zionists, so they withdrew from the debating field.

And, as they did, they began to level charges of anti-Semitism against their critics, even those who are Jewish. These accusations of the worst sort of racism have been with us ever since – which is really ironic because much of what Israel is being criticized for is its own racist, apartheid nature.

Israel planning false flag attack in US to create war with Iran: Ex-US Senate candidate

Israel is preparing to carry out a false flag operation in the United States and will blame it on Iran as a strategy to entangle Washington in a war with Tehran, a former US Senate candidate says.

“I have maintained from the beginning that Israel is planning and will in some point attempt a false flag incident probably within the continental United States that will be facilitated by Israeli intelligence and falsely blamed on Iran,” said Mark Dankof, who is also a broadcaster and pastor in San Antonio, Texas.

“This lie will be repeated in the American news media time and time and time again to create the furor within the United States, with the American public for [triggering] an overt American attack on the Iranians,” Dankof told Press TV.

LBJ Ordered the Death of US Servicemen

The USS Liberty murders are arguably Lyndon Johnson’s greatest crime if one does not include deceiving and dragging America into the horrors of the Vietnam War where millions perished.

The USS Liberty event is one of the most important and also one of the highly suppressed events in modern American history.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am no fan of Johnson, but let us be accurate. The original plotters of the JFK assassination had laid a trail of false evidence to link Oswald to Cuba, and intended to blame Castro for the assassination, to build public support for a new invasion of Cuba. Johnson was aware of Khrushchev's warning following the Cuban Missile Crisis that if the US invaded again, Russia would launch a nuclear attack on the US. So Johnson ordered the Warren Commission to claim Oswald was a "crazed lone nut" to kill the Cuba link and bought off the military industrial complex by giving them Vietnam to play around in instead of Cuba. Oliver Stone never made that connection in his film JFK.

Implications for ICC? SCOTUS Jerusalem Decision Shows Limits of Israel Lobbies

The issue began with a 2002 law passed by Congress instructing the executive to let Americans born in Jerusalem list Israel as their birthplace. The State Department refused to comply, denying Menachem Zivotofsky a passport that listed his birthplace as Jerusalem, Israel. His family sued under the 2002 law. The Supreme Court just struck down that law as unconstitutional.

No one is bringing up that a lot of Palestinian-Americans born in Jerusalem would like their passports to read “Jerusalem, Palestine”.

Could California Ban Anti-Israel Campus Protests as 'Anti-Semitic' Hate?

Asked by the Forward about specific types of pro-Palestinian protest actions on campus, Rossman-Benjamin said that BDS would, in principle, be seen as anti-Semitic with the adoption of the State Department definition. So would protests in which activists erect a wall to symbolize Israel’s separation barrier, which is used to block Palestinians in the occupied West Bank from entering Israel and parts of the West Bank itself. Demonstrations in which activists distribute mock eviction notices — meant to mimic notices distributed by the Israeli army to Palestinian West Bank residents whose homes are slated for demolition — would also be deemed anti-Semitic, Rossman-Benjamin said.

Capitalizing on the Syrian War: Israeli Politician says Syria “No Longer Exists”

Education Minister Naftali Bennett is calling for the world to recognize its 1981 annexation of the Golan Heights because “Syria no longer functions as a country that could reclaim the strategic plateau” according to the Jerusalem Post. Mr. Bennett is taking advantage of Syrian government’s ongoing civil war with the rebels and the Islamic State known as ISIS or ISIL. Bennett is also “undermining support for Palestinian statehood on other land Israel occupied in the 1967 Six-Day War” according to the report. Bennett called on the international community to recognize the Golan Heights as part of Israel when he said “I call on the international community: Stand with us, recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights now,” Bennett said in a speech to the Herzliya Conference, an annual Israeli policy forum. “Borders are changing daily.

Leap of Faith: Israel’s National Religious and the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

Although the landscape of Israeli-Palestinian peacemaking might bear resemblance to that of a decade past, one change is unmistakable: the right is stronger within Israel and the national religious are stronger within the right. This has consequences, some already felt, whether in politics (the rise of Naftali Bennett’s Jewish Home); negotiations (Prime Minister Netanyahu’s commitment to submit any putative agreement to a popular referendum); or on the ground (the rise in confrontational tactics among some young West Bank settlers). Adjusting to this reality means neither ignoring the national-religious agenda nor surrendering to it. It means acknowledging its importance and understanding ideological nuances within it. If the goal is a peace agreement that garners maximum legitimacy, including among the national religious, attention will have to be paid to the substance of the deal, the way in which it is ratified and eventually implemented.

Bilderberg Conspiracy buff Daniel Estulin insists there is no "Jewish-Masonic" conspiracy in world affairs

Daniel Estulin is once again making the media rounds obsessing on the Bilderbergers this week. But in his 2011 report about the secretive Bilderberg meeting, he assured his readers that there is no Jewish-Masonic conspiracy. Matter of fact, Estulin, long touted by the mainline press as a conspiracy buff himself, insists that there is no conspiracy at all. "It is not an evil, all-seeing eye or a Jewish-Masonic conspiracy. There is no conspiracy even though a lot of people with their infantile fantasies see it as such," he wrote. Estulin offers a kosher version of events and characterizes "conspiracy theorists" as "infantile", "pathalogical" and "wild-eyed."

American Treachery in the Attack on the USS Liberty Much Deeper Than Previously Assumed

It has long been assumed that Israel’s deliberate attack on the USS Liberty was just another of her made-to-order false flag operations done simply for the purpose of dragging an unwilling America into a Middle East war on the side of the Jewish state. However, new information uncovered by former BBC investigative journalist Peter Hounam reveals that America–and more specifically the administration of Lyndon Johnson–was not as much the unsuspecting victim in all of this that she has claimed these last 40 years. Based on relatively new evidence, the attack on the Liberty was actually part of a much larger plan and that the Liberty incident was just one domino in a series of them that had as the ultimate goal a real-live shooting war between the US and the USSR.

An older article from Salem News, but a good reminder: “Former Italian President Francesco Cossiga, who died in 2010, the man who revealed the existence of Operation Gladio, told Italy’s oldest and most widely read newspaper in 2007 that the 9-11 terrorist attacks were run by the CIA and Mossad, and that this was common knowledge among global intelligence agencies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Evidence linking these Israelis to 9/11 is classified. I cannot tell you about evidence that has been gathered. It's classified information." -- US official quoted in Carl Cameron's Fox News report on the Israeli spy ring and its connections to 9-11.

People behind BDS are also responsible for 9/11 attack, Israeli centrist tells NY synagogue

Yair Lapid, the former Israeli finance minister and head of a centrist Israeli political party (who is just as hawkish as the government but in opposition), made news this weekend at the Jerusalem Post conference in New York saying that the BDS — Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions– campaign against Israel is a puppet of Hamas and describing BDS leaders as “outright antisemites” linked to the “Palestinian Mufti who collaborated with the Nazis.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Lapid (and Israel's) claim that the Palestinians collaborated with the Nazis is based on a single photograph taken of Adolph Hitler meeting with the grand mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin.



The implication is that this meeting "proves" Palestinians are all closet Nazis.

But, let's look at some other photos.



Hitler with Pope Pius 12th. Does this picture mean all Catholics are closet Nazis?



Hitler with King Edward and Wallace Simpson. Does this photograph mean all British subjects are closet Nazis?



Hitler with France's Henry Philippe Petain. Does this photograph mean all the French are closet Nazis?



Hitler with British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain. Does this photograph mean all British subjects are closet Nazis?



Hitler with President Hoover. Does this photograph mean all Americans are closet Nazis?

The fact is that as a head of state, Hitler was required by diplomatic protocol to meet a lot of people and have his picture taken with them. It is just part of the job. And as WW2 proved, not everyone Hitler was photographed with agreed with him.

Israel says China demands no workers in settlements

China has told Israel it will not allow migrant builders to work on settlements in the occupied West Bank, a senior Israeli government official said on Monday.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pledged during his reelection campaign to step up settlement construction, and cabinet ministers in his new government have called for more building in the occupied territories, which is seen as an obstacle to peace with the Palestinians.

Rand Paul Completely Ignores Anniversary of USS LIBERTY Massacre by Israel

Presidential hopeful Rand Paul callously ignored the 48th anniversary of Israel's attack on the USS Liberty yesterday. On social media, Paul tried to hawk copies of his new book, promoted an upcoming congressional baseball game, and repeatedly boasted that he now has '2 million followers on Facebook!' Rand Paul regularly posts about all sorts of obscure anniversaries and events, such as when he celebrated 'National Hug Day!' earlier this year. The U.S.S. Liberty slaughter, however, where 34 American sailors were killed and many others permanently maimed and injured, doesn't warrant a mention from the allegedly pro-American senator. Rand Paul often gives speeches oddly noting that 'Israelis Don't Burn American Flags' and even admitted in a 2013 Senate speech that he visits with Israeli groups daily." Paul also insists that Israel is "one friend that never leaves our side, has never wavered." [See our site RandPaulZionist.com for much, much more on this topic.]

UN’s Ban Ki-moon caves in, takes Israel off list of serious child abusers

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has caved in to pressure from Israel and the United States and taken the Israeli military off an official list of serious violators of children’s rights, in this year’s report on children in armed conflict.

In doing so, Ban rejected an official recommendation from his own Special Representative for Children and Armed Conflict Leila Zerrougui and numerous human rights organizations and child rights defenders.

Ban’s act is particularly egregious since the report found that the number of children killed in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip in 2014, at 557, was the third highest only after Iraq and Afghanistan and ahead of Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The United Nations just lost all credibility. Something to keep in mind the next time the US Government justifies a war by saying they have a UN resolution supporting them.

CIA chief makes secret visit to Israel ahead of Iran deal

UN spurns Palestinian children

Ban Ki-moon’s decision not to include Israel on the list of violators of children’s rights twists the knife in the heart of every Palestinian parent, making it very clear that in the eyes of the United Nations, Palestinian children’s lives don’t count.

When a military with the most sophisticated and accurate weaponry on the planet can kill more than 500 children in cold blood with complete impunity, as Israel’s absence from the list shows, it reveals more than just the complete disregard for Palestinian lives that has become so commonplace in the halls of power. It also makes it abundantly clear that the UN, the single most important international organisation charged with protecting the lives of the most vulnerable, is failing spectacularly.

Israel’s Attack on the Liberty, Revisited

A Soviet destroyer responded before the US Navy, even though a US submarine, on a covert mission, was apparently in the area and had monitored the attack. The Soviet ship reached the Liberty six hours before the USS Davis. The captain of the Soviet ship offered his aid, but the Liberty’s conning officer refused.

Finally, 16 hours after the attack two US destroyers reached the Liberty. By that time, 34 US sailors were dead and 174 injured, many seriously. As the wounded were being evacuated, an officer with the Office of Naval Intelligence instructed the men not to talk about their ordeal with the press.

The following morning Israel launched a surprise invasion of Syria, breaching the new cease-fire agreement and seizing control of the Golan Heights.

48th Anniversary of the Attack on the USS Liberty

Today is the 48th anniversary of the Israeli attack on the USS Liberty. The Liberty was flying a large American flag on a clear day in international waters in the eastern Mediterannean when Israeli forces attacked it. Navy veterans have been fighting a battle for 48 years to get the truth about this premeditated attack officially recognized. The casualties included 34 Americans killed and 173 wounded. 70 percent of the ship’s crew were casualties. A 40 million dollar Navy intelligence ship was so badly damaged it was sold as scrap. The commander of the Liberty was awarded a Congressional Medal of Honor for keeping his ship from sinking.

White House Backs Israeli Attacks on Gaza Strip

Fresh off the latest round of Gaza rockets and Israeli airstrikes against the strip, the White House has issued statement endorsing any Israeli attacks on the strip, saying they have the right to take whatever military action they see fit to “defend their nation.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These Israeli attacks are not about "defending their nation"; it is a form of serial genocide, plain and simple.

But serial genocide is something the US government has been doing for years in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, and Yemen, so how can the US government be the least bit upset when Israel does it to the Palestinians?

Some"anti-semite"! I have been in contact with him as well as with many of the other survivors. They do not blame"Jews.," They know the attack had been deliberate on the part of Israel and this is where they lay the blame.

Secret Directive 11 codifies Islamists takeover of ME, Muslim Brotherhood Alliance with Obama

Directive 11 brought together activists and operatives at multiple agencies to come up with a “tailored” approach for regime change in each country. The goal was to “manage” the political transitions. It tossed aside American national security interests by insisting that Islamist regimes would be equally committed to fighting terrorism and cooperating with Israel. Its greatest gymnastic feat may have been arguing that the best way to achieve political stability in the region was through regime change.

What little we know about the resulting classified 18-page report is that it used euphemisms to call for aiding Islamist takeovers in parts of the Middle East. Four countries were targeted. Of those four, we only know for certain that Egypt and Yemen were on the list. But we do know for certain the outcome.

The Great Wisconsin Library Wars

The town said the Grobs could name the library and they chose to name it The USS Liberty Memorial Library," and the town council approved.

The Jewish community went berserk when the name was chosen.

Gideon Goldenholz, rabbi of the Beth El Ner Tamid Synagogue in nearby Mequon, called it a cynical act" which carries "a hint of anti-Semitism" and is therefore "insulting to Jews."

Phone calls and letters from Israeli spokesmen in Milwaukee urged
local donors to withdraw their contributions because of the "anti-Semitic" influence.

Soon Jim Grant, city manager. discovered that someone was checking into his background, verifying his military record, and otherwise searching for some fodder for a scandal. Librarian Kathy Kafka learned that persons unknown were attempting to verify her academic record.

Almost immediately Grant learned that the $83,000 federal
commitment had been "postponed" because of complaints about the "anti-Semitic"
name.

Instead, Stevenson called a news conference in which he announced that he was convinced that the attack was deliberate and that the survivors deserved an investigation.

USS Liberty: Government Betrayal and Cover-up Finally Exposed

The assault on the Liberty is well documented. With no warning, the Liberty was attacked by successive waves of unmarked jets using cannon, rockets and napalm. The attacking jets jammed all of the US communications frequencies, an indication they knew the Liberty was an American ship.

The air attack failed to sink the Liberty. About 30 minutes into the attack three torpedo boats appeared flying the Star of David. The Israeli boats were not on a rescue mission. They attacked the Liberty with cannon, machine guns and torpedoes. One torpedo struck the Liberty mid-ship, instantly killing 25 Americans while flooding the lower decks. The Israeli torpedo boats destroyed the life rafts the Liberty launched when the crew prepared to abandon ship, sending the message there’d be no survivors.

The Assault on the USS Liberty Still Covered Up After 26 Years

Flashback: Fifteen years after the attack, an Israeli pilot approached Liberty survivors and then held extensive interviews with former Congressman Paul N. (Pete) McCloskey about his role. According to this senior Israeli lead pilot, he recognized the Liberty as American immediately, so informed his headquarters, and was told to ignore the American flag and continue his attack. He refused to do so and returned to base, where he was arrested.

Later, a dual-citizen Israeli major told survivors that he was in an Israeli war room where he heard that pilot's radio report. The attacking pilots and everyone in the Israeli war room knew that they were attacking an American ship, the major said. He recanted the statement only after he received threatening phone calls from Israel.

Israel a criminal offender at large, UN listing or not [GRAPHIC IMAGES]

Reports have come out that the UN was considering adding Israel to the list of “grave violations against children in armed conflict.” As detailed below, Israeli army and Israel’s state policies are systematically violent against Palestinian children.

A recent Independent article noted that [Special Envoy for Children and Armed Conflict Leila] “Zerrougui’s draft report cited IDF attacks on schools and hospitals during the 2014 war in the Gaza Strip...”

Even though the UN has historically not taken strong action against any of Israel’s war crimes over the decades, let alone those specifically against Palestinian children, Israel has reportedly exerted pressure to be de-listed from the draft list, with seeming success.

The Independent wrote, “UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, however, is said to be leaning towards not including Israel in the list, amid what several diplomatic sources anonymously said was intense lobbying from Israel.”

Jun 08 08:09

Israel’s Unlikely Alliance

This line of argument has long been part of al-Qaeda’s rhetoric. But in fact, the record shows extremely little in the way of violent attacks on Israel by this extremist sectarian movement. Its main targets have largely been US and other Western civilian and military targets on one hand, and Muslim civilian targets on the other (especially, in the last decade, sectarian attacks against Shia Muslims in Iraq).

Why would Israel and other western powers align themselves with such a movement, even on a limited, tactical basis? Surely any such support would eventually lead to “blowback” in those countries?

“The Lab”: Israel Tests Weapons, Tactics On Captive Palestinian Population

Shimon Peres, Israel’s president and the man who oversaw the country’s secret development of a nuclear bomb in the 1960s, held a star-studded 90th birthday party masquerading as a presidential conference in June (see August 2013 Washington Report on Middle East Affairs, p. 12).

Aside from the cloud cast by the decision of the renowned British physicist Stephen Hawking to boycott the event, it was an unabashed celebration of Peres’ life and work by a long list of the international “great and good,” from former U.S. President Bill Clinton to songstress Barbra Streisand.

However, as one Israeli website noted, this $3 million salute to the head of the Israeli state was financed chiefly by the arms industry.

UN Secretary-General weighs lumping Israel in with ISIS and Al Qaeda

This week Senators Lindsey Graham and Ted Cruz have posed a challenge for would-be presidents and all Americans: if the United Nations criminalizes Israel’s exercise of the right of self-defense it will pay a heavy price. The organization has no right to expect billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars to be doled out every year when they are spent undercutting our deepest values and our national security.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The UN is not responsible for the Unites States' values and no more responsible for US security than for any other member nation. The United Nation's job is maintaining peace under international law. If Graham and Cruz want to pull out of the United Nations to please their masters in Tel Aviv, that is fine. We will remind the voters that they did so (or tried to do so) next year!

“Zionist and most anti-Zionist Jews are captives of the same primeval Jewish mindset, and that it is this mindset that, in effect, provoked antisemitic reaction, right down to the Holocaust itself.” (David Aaronovitch, Jewish Chronicle)

David Aaronovitch, once Trotskyite, now neo-con but always advocate for Blair’s Zionist wars is alive and kicking. Yesterday in the Jewish Chronicle he found the time to attack Professor Oren Ben Dor for telling the truth about Israel and Jewish identity politics. In his Jewish Chronicle weekly column, the war-monger had the audacity to criticise Ben Dor, (himself a veteran Israeli submarine captain as well as a law scholar who found out about Jewish violence the hard way) for wishing to express his own political opinions about Jewish culture and identity politics.

Israeli leader says world silent on Gaza rocket attacks

Benjamin Netanyahu said he hasn't heard a word of condemnation from the world about three rocket attacks from Gaza over the past two weeks. The rockets did not cause any injury or harm but disrupted the quiet in southern Israel that has mostly prevailed since last summer's war between Hamas and Israel.
Note: Let's get this straight. 3 rockets land in vacant fields, the people who did this are unknown, and now Israel bombs the hell out of Gaza! Had enough yet!

Israel - A criminal offender at large, UN listing or not

Israel need not worry that anyone is trying to “besmirch” its reputation. It has proven quite adept at doing that all on its own. Every blown-off Palestinian child's head, every Palestinian child behind Israeli bars, every Mohammed Abu Khdair tortured and killed by Jewish colonists, and every colonists’ intentional running over of Palestinian children “besmirches” what is left of the racist, genocidal state's reputation, with or without UN recognition.

Hundreds protest Israel plan to ruin Palestinian village

Hundreds of Palestinians, Israelis, and foreigners have taken to the streets of a village near the occupied West Bank city of al-Khalil (Hebron) to voice anger at Tel Aviv’s plan to demolish the village.

Israel a criminal offender at large, UN listing or not [GRAPHIC IMAGES]

Reports have come out that the UN was considering adding Israel to the list of “grave violations against children in armed conflict.” As detailed below, Israeli army and Israel’s state policies are systematically violent against Palestinian children.

A recent Independent article noted that [Special Envoy for Children and Armed Conflict Leila] “Zerrougui’s draft report cited IDF attacks on schools and hospitals during the 2014 war in the Gaza Strip...”

Even though the UN has historically not taken strong action against any of Israel’s war crimes over the decades, let alone those specifically against Palestinian children, Israel has reportedly exerted pressure to be de-listed from the draft list, with seeming success.

Seattle Mayor's Israel Trip to Cost Public about $36,000

Seattle Mayor Ed Murray’s trip to Israel next week to speak at an LGBT conference and take part in a trade mission will cost taxpayers about $36,000.

Murray’s spokesman previously said Israel’s foreign ministry would pay for the trip to the conference but now says Seattle is covering some expenses, including $24,000 for flights for a staff member and security guards and lodging for the guards throughout the trip.

In addition, the Seattle Fire Department is paying about $10,000 to $12,000 for two of its officials to participate in the trade mission, which was added after the mayor agreed to speak at the conference. They’ll meet with Israeli emergency medical service workers.

Netanyahu is Disconnected from Reality

This writer has commented before on the increasing desperation of Israel to cling to some sense of legitimacy, as it continues policies of racism, oppression and genocide. Any nation indulging in such horrific practices, as Israel does against any and all minorities within its internationally-questioned borders, and of Palestinians outside those borders, cannot expect to be a respected member of the global community.

Israel Signals it’s Ready to Destroy Hezbollah

These days Lebanon, as with this region, is being shaken by political and ‘terrorism” crises, threats to stability, growing popular unrest, and ideological and theological sacrum bellum turbulence. Forces not seen since the beginning of the last century with the end of the Ottoman Empire and its replacement with the hegemonic Sykes-Picot diktat.

Yet, with all of Israel’s swelling international legitimacy problems, the Zionist regime still occupying another country, Palestine, can sound its bugle, which having no valves or other political pitch-altering complications, blast-summons its agents in Washington and elsewhere to get busy and circle the wagons.

Israel brands Palestinian-led boycott movement a 'strategic threat'

Israel and key international supporters have sharply ratcheted up their campaign against the Palestinian-led Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, with senior Israeli officials declaring it a strategic threat.

Israelis and Saudis Reveal Secret Talks to Thwart Iran

Among those who follow the Middle East closely, it's been an open secret that Israel and Saudi Arabia have a common interest in thwarting Iran. But until Thursday, actual diplomacy between the two was never officially acknowledged. Saudi Arabia still doesn't recognize Israel's right to exist. Israel has yet to accept a Saudi-initiated peace offer to create a Palestinian state.

It was not a typical Washington think-tank event. No questions were taken from the audience. After an introduction, there was a speech in Arabic from Anwar Majed Eshki, a retired Saudi general and ex-adviser to Prince Bandar bin Sultan, the former Saudi ambassador to the U.S. Then Dore Gold, a former Israeli ambassador to the United Nations who is slotted to be the next director general of Israel's foreign ministry, gave a speech in English.

While these men represent countries that have been historic enemies, their message was identical: Iran is trying to take over the Middle East and it must be stopped.

Claiming to preserve Jerusalem, Israeli archaeologists wreck Palestinian heritage

Israel’s National Planning Committee has overseen an appeal by several bodies who oppose the further expansion of the powerful settler group Elad’s control over archaeological sites in Silwan, a congested Palestinian neighborhood located just meters away from al-Aqsa Mosque and the walls of the Old City in occupied East Jerusalem. With the blessing of the authorities, Elad plans to build a giant new visitors center on top of an excavation site.

Elad (a Hebrew acronym for “To the City of David”) is a private organization that has become the de facto administrator of some of the most controversial archaeological sites in Jerusalem. Elad was founded in 1986 with the explicit goal of removing Palestinians from East Jerusalem and settling Jews in their place. It accomplishes this by providing assistance in the purchase or seizure of Palestinian properties.
