ISRAEL EXPLOITS THE EVENTS IN PARIS

While Netanyahu was certainly playing to a domestic audience, his presence in Paris is also part of Israel’s swift move to capitalize on the horror in France on a number of fronts: to attack the Palestinians, to sharpen the dangerous discourse of a “war of civilizations” and to speed up the population transfer of Jews from Europe.

Israel: ‘Je Suis Hypocrite’

It is no small irony that the West, who now so vociferously speak against the so-called “intolerance of Islam” (while practicing their own censorship), should seek comfort and support from Israelis, of all people, who now too eagerly sing the hymns of free speech, while being one of the most egregious perpetrators of violence against journalists the world has ever known. Indeed, last year alone, Israelis achieved the dubious honor of being named the world’s second most lethal state against journalists, according to the watchdog Reporters Without Borders.

Paris Attack Proven Fake By Smoking Gun Video! Case Closed!

Alternative media is being rocked right now as the controlled opposition continues to push this attack as being real while all their listeners already know it’s 100% fake! It’s going to be interesting to see the gatekeepers in alternative media start to twist and turn over the weekend and into next week as their listeners bail by the millions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yes, it will be interesting to see how the compromised members of the Independent Media handle this one, trying to push the official story in the face of the obvious evidence in the gunshot video.

Need To Know

Some voiced discomfort that the march’s dominant slogan became “Je suis Charlie,” or “I am Charlie,” because despite unwavering support for free speech, they feel the cartoons the magazine has published in its history are offensive, and in some cases amount to hate speech. Then there was criticism that among the 40 or so world leaders who led the Paris march were some — including from Israel, Egypt, Russia, and France itself — who have questionable records on free speech. Then there was this comment from a veteran Charlie Hebdo cartoonist: “We vomit on all those people who are suddenly saying they are our friends.”

FLASHBACK - Israel Campaigns Against Global Free Speech

Alarmed at the rise of anti-Semitism and anti-Israeli sentiments on the internet, Israeli politicians recently called for nations around the world to enact legislation prohibiting criticism of Jews and Israel. Lobbying to outlaw global free speech is nothing new for Israel, however; it has been in the business of criminalizing speech for decades.

In Search of King Solomon's Temple

Tradition has it that Jerusalem’s Dome of the Rock and Al-Aqsa Mosque were built upon the ruins of King Solomon’s Temple, destroyed by the Romans in 70AD.

But what if the ruins aren’t there?

That, in fact, is the conclusion drawn by Dr. George Buchanan, Professor Emeritus of New Testament Studies at Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, D.C.

Dr. Buchanan posits that the original site of King Solomon’s Temple is just south of the Dome of the Rock and Al-Aska Mosque in an area where today Palestinian homes are being bulldozed to make way for a park over what is now considered by many archaeologists the old City of David.

The real reason Bibi wants French Jews to move to Israel

snip: Strange. The leader of a country that is constantly in a state of war, and that every few years actually goes to war, is imploring France’s Jews to leave their country in the wake of two terrorist attacks (one of which was not directed at a Jewish target), and move to Israel. Even if we ignore the downright chutzpah of his demand vis-a-vis the French government (try imagining a leader of a Western state calling on Israelis to immigrate to his country because of the security situation in Israel), no one doubts that French Jewish immigrants will be in much greater danger living in Israel. Perhaps our foreign minister would do well to update Netanyahu on the travel warnings issued fairly often for our country?

Spitting On Other People’s Prophets Is Not A Western Value

In 2009, The Jerusalem Post published an exposé of the growing tendency of Orthodox Jews in Jerusalem to spit on their Christian neighbours. (‘Mouths Filled with Hatred’, By Larry Derfner The JPost, Nov. 26, 2009). Israel Shahak also commented on Jewish hatred of Christianity and its symbols, suggesting, “Dishonouring Christian religious symbols is an old religious duty in Judaism.” According to Shahak, “spitting on the cross, and especially on the Crucifix, and spitting when a Jew passes a church, have been obligatory from around AD 200 for pious Jews.”

Interestingly, Jewish spitting has had an impact on the urban landscape of Europe. The following can be read in a ‘Travel Guide for Jewish Europe.’

Israel Still Moaning over Lancet Doctors' Support of Duke's CNN Goldman Sachs & the Zio Matrix of Power

The Israelis are still stinging from the support shown by doctors associated with the prestigious medical journal The Lancet for Dr. David Duke’s positions and videos. The Lancet, which was founded almost 200 years ago, is perhaps the world’s most distinguished medical journal. Last summer a group of well-known physicians published an open letter criticizing Israel’s massacre of Gazans. It later turned out that some of these doctors had been so impressed by one of Dr. Duke’s videos, CNN Goldman Sachs & the Zio Matrix of Power, that they circulated it widely via social media.

Israel moves quickly to exploit Paris attacks

After hesitations reportedly over cost and security, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu finally decided to attend the “solidarity” march in Paris on Sunday, ostensibly in support of “free expression” and other “Western values.”

The march had been called in the wake of the attacks in Paris last week in which two gunmen murdered twelve people at the offices of the magazine Charlie Hebdo, and a third murdered four people at a Jewish grocery store.

Hollande asked Netanyahu not to join Paris rally: Reports

French President Francois Hollande did not want Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to take part in the mass unity rally held in protest at recent killings in Paris, Israeli media say.

According to Israel’s Channel 2, Hollande sent a message to Netanyahu, asking him not to participate in the unity march as he believed the Israeli premier’s presence there would be “divisive.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

But Netanyahu pushed his way in as well and tried to hog the cameras, as seen in this CNN video!

UPDATE: CNN has now deleted this video.

BBC - Doubts raised over authenticity of Charlie Hebdo footage.

According to analysts, it appears that the footage was recorded over two takes, evidenced by a placement marker that appears by the front left wheel of the vehicle as the gunmen return from apparently gunning down a wounded Gendarme.

The killing of the french policeman is also being called into question, due to the ‘lack of blood spatter consistent with that of a close range shooting’.

As shown in the freeze frame below, smoke is shown to emit from the weapon, with no impact or trauma appearing to register on the body of the victim. The decision of many news outlets to blur out the victim is being debated as evidence of complicity in what many are now calling a hoax.

BEX Alert - " Richard Perle: World Can't Cope With Terrorism, but Must Learn"

Perle, a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and former chairman of the Pentagon's Defense Policy Board under President Ronald Reagan, said part of the issue is a failure to face reality.

"The reality is that within the community of people who believe in Islam, there is a group, a small group but nevertheless a group, whose numbers are in the thousands and maybe tens or hundreds of thousands," he said.

"[They] have a vision of Islam that entails the use of violence to bring about the triumph of Islam over the rest of the world.

"Until we face that fact and design strategies built on that recognition, these things will continue to happen."

BEX ALERT - ADL Exposes Anti-Semitic Conspiracy Theories After Paris Terror Attacks

In the wake of the terror attacks on the Charlie Hebdo headquarters and the hostage situation at a kosher supermarket in Paris, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) exposed several conspiracy theories promoted by anti-Semites and anti-Israel activists, as well as by some media outlets primarily in the Arab world.

Webmaster's Commentary:

One Month Before Charlie Hebdo, Netanyahu's Angry Rant To France on Islamic Terror: "Does anyone in Paris talk about this!?"

In late November, Israeli Prime Minister 'Bibi' Netanyahu was asked "about the upcoming French Parliament vote to recognize a Palestinian State." Netanyahu gave an angry reply, which he re-tweeted later. He began with a rant about murderous Islamists, asking "Does anyone in Paris talk about this? This is what they have to do now when the world is exploding? I think this is a terribly misguided position. You know, we don't come out and say what countries or what regions of France should be independent...When Israel- the only democracy- is standing with France and with Europe to fight the Islamist fires..."

No Blood? Reporter at Paris Shooting Aftermath Says “You Can See the Blood on the Ground Which Has Been Put There”

Yesterday, a slowed down video released on YouTube showed what was purported to be a police officer executed on the streets of Paris by Islamic terrorists.

Bizarrely, the video shows no weapon recoil and no blood, even after the officer was reportedly shot in the head at point black range with an AK47.

Now video has emerged today, in which a reporter, following up on the aftermath, stands where the cop was shot, and lets a rather strange sentence pop out of his mouth:

“The spot where he fell has already been marked by candles, by some flowers which have been laid here. This area was largely cordoned off last night so not many people could have come here so there’s not much sign of presence. You can see the blood on the ground which has been put there.“

Originally from the village of Qabatiya near Jenin, 34-year-old Saba’aneh started drawing all the pictures on exhibition while he was in jail, completing them later.

He spent five months in prison after being arrested by Israeli occupation forces this past February. After two months of internment without charge, Israel charged him with drawing cartoons in a book they alleged had some association with Hamas.

Media obsesses over ‘free speech’ in Charlie Hebdo case while ignoring Israeli targeting of journalists

The subsequent taking of hostages in a Parisian kosher supermarket by an acquaintance of the shooters was an even more despicable act, leading to the deaths of at least four. Both incidents are horrific tragedies, and deserve harsh condemnation.

Yet they have exponentially overshadowed equally tragic recent attacks on journalists. In its November 2012 attack on Gaza, “Operation Pillar of Defense,” the Israeli government admitted that it was targeting journalists. This trend was revisited only months ago in Israel’s summer 2014 assault, “Operation Protective Edge,” an incursion that left 2,310 dead—over 1,500 of whom were civilians, including at least 500 children—and 10,626 wounded.

Who profits from killing Charlie?

Case closed? Well, it took only a few hours for French police to identify the (usual?) suspects: French-Algerian brothers Said and Cherif Kouachi. The third man, the driver of the black Citroen, apparently 18-year-old Hamyd Mourad, then turned himself in with an ironclad alibi. So the third man remains a cipher.

They all wore balaclavas. The Kouachi brothers have not been captured, but the police seem to know very well who they are. Because they found an abandoned ID in the black Citroen (oh, the troubles of being a command in a rush…) How come they didn’t know anything before the carnage?

The Move to Muzzle Dieudonné M’Bala M’Bala

French mainstream media and politicians are starting off the New Year with a shared resolution for 2014: permanently muzzle a Franco-African comedian who is getting to be too popular among young people.

In between Christmas and New Year’s Eve, no less than the President of the Republic, François Hollande, while visiting Saudi Arabia on (very big) business, said his government must find a way to ban performances by the comedian Dieudonné M’Bala M’Bala, as called for by French Interior Minister, Manuel Valls.

The leader of the conservative opposition party, UMP, Jean-François Copé, immediately chimed in with his “total support” for silencing the unmanageable entertainer.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In the eyes of the French, Dieudonné must be silenced because of his criticism of Israel, which is declared anti-Semitic, while Charlie Bebdo (which fired one of its own writers for anti-Semitism) is being lionized as martyrs to freedom of expression for publishing this...

This...

And this!

Charlie Hebdo has to be a propaganda front, because I cannot imagine the French (or anyone else) actually buying magazines with illustrations like this in it!

Gilad Atzmon - "Another false-flag operation?"

While every anti terror expert has agreed that the attack on Charlie Hebdo yesterday was a professional job, it seems pretty amateurish for a ‘highly trained terrorist’ to leave his ID behind. And since when does a terrorist take his ID on an operation? One possible explanation is that the so-called terrorists needed a few extra hours to leave France or disappear. They had to fool the French police and intelligence into searching the wrong places and the wrong people. Is it possible that they simply planted a stolen or forged ID card in the car they left behind?

If this was the scenario, it is possible that the attack yesterday had nothing to do with ‘Jihadi terrorism.’ It is quite probable that this was another false flag operation. Who could be behind it? Use your imagination.

Paris 12 Murder by Mossad False Flag?

“HOW MANY MOSSAD AGENTS does it take to pull off a false flag? Just enough to have a getaway car ready at a Kosher Restaurant two miles from the Charlie Hebdo scene in Paris. The perpetrators’ first car, a black Citroen, was abandoned at the restaurant while a grey Renault was provided for the murderers to flee in, reportedly “carjacked” as per the French police. One look at how carefully the getaway car was parked in front of the Kosher Restaurant suggests that the attackers were in no hurry to escape since they knew that a safe haven and another car was ready for them for the second leg of their getaway. Why the French police are claiming the Renault getaway vehicle was “carjacked” appears to cover the fact that the Renault was provided by, as this author sees it, Jewish accomplices, that is, Sayanim.

THE CHARLIE HEBDO ATTACK 7.1.2015 We should be swift to condemn atrocity, but slow to jump to conclusions

We should be swift to condemn atrocity, whether from East or West (and West has been guilty of plenty) but slow to jump to conclusions as to perpetrators or motive of violent outrages such as this one today, in the offices of Charlie Hebdo, the French weekly satirical magazine. Recent history and events have taught us that, at least.

The reality is that these barbarous acts are embedded in, and cannot be extricated from, the whole Middle East mess, for which we cannot escape partial responsibility. The bottom line is that the role of France and other Western countries in Syria and elsewhere has probably more to do with today’s outrage than a few cartoons and the issue of free speech to which the public’s attention has been directed.

So, Liberman and Mossad meet with an Arab "terrorist" leader in Paris on Christmas, and now France is hit withg multiple terror attacks that benefits Israel's agenda. Dahlan's payoff is likely Israel's help for him to replace Abbas.

No WONDER the earlier reports are being denied!

SWEDISH ARTIST DAN PARK ASSAULTED BY SIX MEN IN ‘ANTI-FASCIST’ MASKS IN COPENHAGEN, CALLED A F’N NAZI…….

The Swedish provocative artist Dan Park was New Year’s Day assaulted by six men on Jagtvej in Nørrebro in Copenhagen, he wrote on his facebook profile.

Here the artist put a picture of his battered face up with the following text:

“The new year started very well, was attacked by six pieces masked” antifacister “on Jagtvej, Nørrebro in Copenhagen. All in Denmark seems clearly not about my art, “he writes.

A lot of his cartoons deal with the Holohaux, Israel, and Jews, and everyone else. See this site for his works: http://vitnet.no/dan-park-sveriges-zyklon-b-kunstner/
I believe it was Jews or Israeli's that did the attacking. Just like in Paris.

CHARLIE HEBDO WHERE'S THE BLOOD?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The absence of blood is curious, but if you look closely at the slow motion at 1:03 you will see that the gunshot fired at the cop on the ground (who happens to be Muslim) actually misses him and strikes the pavement several inches past him.

But the main reason I wanted to post this is that it confirms that an Israeli media deputy editor "just happened" to be there to get the scenes on video.

UPDATE: I am receiving emails that the unedited video showing that the gunshot misses the man on the ground are being pulled down from services like Vimeo because of "disgusting content", which is apparently code-speak for "embarrassing revelation that undermines the official story." So grab a copy off the web while you still can!

UPDATE 2: YouTube just yanked the version above. Here is another.

Amidst A Religious War in Europe Or Is It Just another False Flag Operation?

While every anti terror expert has agreed that the attack on Charlie Hebdo yesterday was a professional job, it seems pretty amateurish for a ‘highly trained terrorist’ to leave his ID behind. And since when does a terrorist take his ID on an operation? One possible explanation is that the so-called terrorists needed a few extra hours to leave France or disappear. They had to fool the French police and intelligence into searching the wrong places and the wrong people. Is it possible that they simply planted a stolen or forged ID card in the car they left behind?

If this was the scenario, it is possible that the attack yesterday had nothing to do with ‘Jihadi terrorism.’ It is quite probable that this was another false flag operation. Who could be behind it? Use your imagination...

FORMER KNESSET SPEAKER TELLS WHY HE STRAYED FROM ZIONISM TO REALITY

Dr. Yosef Burg is lying on his deathbed in a Jerusalem hospital. The longtime leader of the National Religious Party and a person who devoted his entire life to public service on behalf of the Jewish people is about to die. In the last sentences he ever uttered, he called out to his son, “Avraham, I’m worried. Who will take care of the Jewish people?” and it is his heartfelt plea that motivated the author to write what can best be described as his manifesto on how to save the Jewish people from its obsession with the Holocaust, which is having such a destructive influence on Zionism and Israeli society.

Charlie Hebdo shooting suspect defended by classmates on Twitter

Classmates of an 18-year-old accused of being the getaway driver in the deadly attack on Charlie Hebdo magazine offices in Paris on Wednesday have defended him on Twitter, saying he was in class when masked gunmen opened fire.

Mourad Hamyd turned himself in to police in his home town of Charleville-Mézières, near the Belgian border, after he was named as one of three suspects in the attack, which killed 12, and saw his name on social media.

US: Palestine Not a State, Can’t Be ICC Member

The US State Department is demanding that the International Criminal Court (ICC) reject Palestinian membership on the grounds that “Palestine is not a state” and that the application is therefore unacceptable.

The comments echo those from Israeli Premier Benjamin Netanyahu, though as neither Israel nor the US is a ratified member of the ICC, neither necessarily has much pull, and the UN has already confirmed Palestine’s membership will be active effective April 1.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, the US takes a position that as long as Israel denies Palestine statehood, Israel can commit all the war crimes they want. That is like saying that as long as King George III prevented the formation of the United States, any crimes committed by his soldiers against the colonists were perfectly legal!

The move comes after the destruction of hundreds of homes inside the 500-meter area previously, as part of a wider effort to ensure that the joint Israeli-Egyptian blockade of the Gaza Strip be fully carried out.

Many US lawmakers are “bought and paid for” by the powerful pro-Israel lobby which cares more about Israel than the United States, an American scholar and journalist in Wisconsin says.

Israel is concentrating all of its efforts on dividing the people of Jerusalem into individual factions and they have a plan to target each of these factions in an individual way. Israel’s plan of attack is being implemented slowly so that it can permanently phase out the Palestinian presence in the city, little by little and gradually in a frantic war over the city.

Defend “Israel’s advocate” Alan Dershowitz against rape claims, says prominent rabbi

In his recent column at the New York Observer, anti-Palestinian activist and famed American rabbi Shmuley Boteach implores Jews everywhere to speak out in defense of Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz against allegations that he raped a minor. Why? Because “for decades, Israel has found its most eloquent defender in Alan Dershowitz,” according to Boteach. “He is just so good at being Israel’s advocate.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Note that the innocence or guilt of Dershowitz isn't even addressed. He supports Israel, and that is all that matters. Reminds me of The murder of Mary Phagan and the founding of the ADL!

The Month in Pictures: December 2014

In the occupied Gaza Strip, which the United Nations warns will be potentially unlivable by 2020, the passing year closed as it had begun: under a comprehensive siege imposed by Israel in 2007 and enforced by Egypt’s dictatorship.

An Israeli airstrike on Gaza on 20 December — the first since the 51-day massive assault this summer — raised fears of renewed military conflict.

Israel has violated on a daily basis the 26 August ceasefire which ended nearly two months of intensive bombing and shelling, during which 2,257 Palestinians in Gaza were killed, including 539 children, according to the UN monitoring group OCHA.

Retaliatory Response to Palestinian Authority's ICC Bid Underscores Injustice of U.S. and Israeli Policies: Critics

The Palestinian Authority's formal application to join the International Criminal Court has been met with a flood of retaliation and threats from Israel and the United States, illustrating, critics say, the unjust policies of these powerful countries.

The PA formally submitted the application to the global court on Friday, signaling the intention to "seek justice for all the victims that have been killed by Israel," including during the latest 50-day military assault on Gaza, which killed at least 2,194 Palestinians, over 75 percent of them civilians and more than 500 of them children.

Just one day after the application was submitted, Israel announced that it will freeze approximately $127.6 million in Palestinian Authority tax revenue in retaliation. Excluding international aid, this revenue comprises two-thirds of the PA's annual budget, according to Al Jazeera America.

WikiLeaks: U.S. worried Israel becoming 'the promised land' for organized crime

The U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv sent a cable to the State Department in May 2009 expressing little confidence in the Israel Police's ability to counter the growing wave of organized crime.

The cable, released on WikiLeaks, said the embassy was taking pains to prevent members of crime families from being issued visas to the United States.

The cable, under the headline "Israel, a promised land for organized crime?" notes that the U.S. Embassy was following Israeli crime families closely and considered them a serious threat to the United States. The embassy has set up a database on the subject with the help of Israeli and American law-enforcement agencies.

"Given the growing reach and lethal methods of Israeli OC [Organized Crime], blocking the travel of known OC figures to the United States is a matter of great concern," according to the cable, signed by James Cunningham, the U.S. ambassador to Israel.

Israel to Divert Military Budget to Settlement Expansion

Israeli Premier Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon have announced they will divert some $18 million from the nation’s military budget , which includes money provided as direct military aid from the United States and others, to settlement expansion in the occupied West Bank.

Netanyahu had promised to provide the money to construction 300 more homes in Beit El settlement after the 2012 court decision to demolish 5 apartment buildings built illegally on privately owned Palestinian land.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Annexation and asset forfeiture have been the key Israeli governmental tools to making sure, if there is ever a Palestinian nation, that the physical land it upon which it will exist will be no larger than a postage stamp.

By deferring money from the US government's grants (read: our taxes)which were originally engineered to insure Israel's military competitive edge, Netanyahu is saying to Obama "Up yours!!"

What President Obama and Congress should do, in response to this action, is to immediately stop all financial and military aid to Israel, which is already illegal under the Symington Amendment.

Then, that money should be used to repair the US's crumbling infrastructure.

Of course, that will only happen when pigs fly, due to AIPAC's generous contributions, both in terms of finance and marketing, for those Congressional Representatives who will do whatever Tel Aviv wants them to do.

And if you don't believe me, just take a good, hard look at the new sanctions the Menendez-Kirk-Schumer wishes to impose on Iran, even before the P5+1 talks are due to resume. IF these gentlemen manage to find a "veto proof majority" on this bill, it will force Iran to walk away from the negotiating table, which is precisely what it is engineered to do. And who is just salivating over such a potential outcome?!?

Israel.

As reported at lobelog.com:

Copies of the bill that Sens. Kirk , Menendez , and Schumer hope to introduce in the Senate this week — presumably to be pressed for passage after the Christmas/New Year recess — are circulating today around Washington, and, as predicted, it is clearly designed to sabotage last month’s first-phase deal (the Joint Plan of Action) on Tehran’s nuclear program, as well as prospects for a final agreement. The bill is called the Iran Nuclear Weapon Free Act of 2013 , although I would prefer to call it the Wag the Dog Act of 2014, given the implicit discretion it gives to Bibi Netanyahu to commit the U.S. to war with Iran. Its key provisions, as described by the sponsors, are laid out at the end of this post. As I’ve noted in past posts, the two main co-sponsors of this legislation are also two of the biggest recipients of campaign funding from “pro-Israel” political action committees (PACs) associated with the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) in the U.S. Congress, according to the Center for Responsive Politics’ Open Secrets website. By a wide margin, Kirk was the biggest recipient of pro-Israel PAC money in Congress since 2002; in his most recent campaign (2012), Menendez received more than $340,000 from pro-Israel Pacs, beating out all other Senate candidates. Schumer, a major rainmaker for other Democratic candidates (which poses a very serious challenge to the Obama administration in keeping his party in line on any vote on this bill) ranked fifth in his 2010 race at more than $260,000, far behind Kirk, the year’s winner at nearly $640,000. Let there be no doubt about it: this bill was approved by AIPAC and is thus as close to the position of the Israeli government as its followers here believe will be politically palatable. (Saudi Arabia will also be pleased.)

Jewish settlers threw stones at the cars of a delegation of American diplomats, who came to inspect suspected vandalism of nearby Palestinian-owned trees in the occupied West Bank, Israeli police said Friday.

The U.S. embassy in Tel Aviv and U.S. consulate in Jerusalem had no immediate comment on the incident, which occurred outside the Adei Ad settlement and incurred no casualties.

They not only invaded our home, took over our space, and evicted us—they even arrested me and took me to the Maskubya—the police station. I was put in room number four, alone, for a long time. Then, a big and tall man, a police officer, entered the interrogation room. I was alone, and started shivering from fear as he closed the door, started moving things around in the room and examining me from head to toe. I was terrorized, and my heart was beating so fast. His eyes penetrated my body, as he was opening the drawers looking for something. Then, he left the room and came back five minutes later holding a box. He pulled out a pair of blue plastic gloves, and put one on each of his hands, while looking at me and saying “…Come here…” I must tell you that I was terrorized when they invaded the house and evicted us. I was extremely anxious when they arrested my son.

UK activists sue Israel over raid on Gaza-bound flotilla

A group of British activists has filed a lawsuit against Israeli troops over a 2010 attack on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla that left 10 Turkish activists dead.

Lawyers of the activists have asked Scotland Yard to open a probe into the incident to find whether Israeli special forces committed war crimes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One of the dead was an American citizen.

Israel murdered an AMERICAN CITIZEN in international waters, for taking their picture! A 19-year old boy from New York carrying a US Passport. Indeed Furkan Dogan's American citizenship is in less dispute than that of Barack Hussein Obama!

Back in 1941, there was this foreign nation, Japan, which was illegally occupying other peoples' lands in China and Indonesia.

There were Americans in close proximity to that foreign nation, in the then-territory of Hawaii, and even though the Americans had not actually done much of anything, that foreign nation decided it had the right to attack and kill Americans just on the off chance that somewhere down the road, they might be in inconvenience.

Thus came about the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Now, just for a moment imagine that instead of declaring immediate war on those who attacked Americans, President Franklin D. Roosevelt had rushed over to the League of Nations to explain why Japan's attack on Americans was really no big deal, and that Japan had good reason to attack and kill Americans! Imagine if Roosevelt, instead of the "Day of Infamy" speech, had made countless excuses why Japan was perfectly right to attack and kill Americans. Imagine that the US Congress, instead of voting war against the nation that attacked Americans decided to punish those who criticized the nation that attacked Americans?

Quite an amazing fantasy isn't it? Yet this is exactly what we have seen the present government do over the last few years ever since Israel's attack on the aid flotilla!

Israel, citing grounds of national security, occupies the lands of Palestine, just as Japan, citing national security, occupied China. The Americans in the aid flotilla had not actually done anything to threaten Israel, just like the Americans sitting in Pearl Harbor had done nothing to threaten Japan.

1941 Japan attacks Americans in the middle of an ocean and the US goes to war against Japan.

2010 Israel attacks Americans in the middle of a sea and the US Government protects the attacker.

In 1904, American businessman Ion Perdicaris was taken prisoner by Mulai Raisuli. Now, from Raisuli's point of view, he had good reason to take Perdicaris prisoner as Raisuli was fighting against foreign occupation of his homeland. Even Perdicaris conceded that Raisuli was acting from what Perdicaris considered justifiable motives.

But President Roosevelt did not view the affair from Raisuli's point of view. He viewed it from the point of view of a President of the United States. Under the slogan "Perdicaris alive or Raisuli dead!" Roosevelt sent 7 US Battleships with orders to destroy Morroco if Perdicaris was not released. Perdicaris was sent home.

Those men were real Presidents; Presidents who understood that their job as commander in chief is to protect America and Americans first and foremost, and to hell with the other guys' point of view; real Presidents which when compared to, Obama is but a thin and venal wisp of shadow.

Palestinians criticise Israeli decision to withhold tax

Israel is withholding $127 million (€106 million) in tax revenue it collects for the Palestinian Authority in response to its move last week to join the International Criminal Court, further escalating tensions with a step that could have repercussions for both sides.

Saeb Erekat, the chief Palestinian negotiator, said that the Israeli move could lead to the disintegration of the 20-year-old authority because it would be unable to pay government workers or provide public services. He promised to retaliate by expediting the petitions to join the court and other international agencies and said Israel “will be held accountable for everything.”

ISIS and Israel are working together to counter Assad ..."Fourthly, in 2013 Israel granted oil exploration licenses in the Syrian-claimed Golan Heights, spelling “potential for another armed conflict between the two parties should substantial hydrocarbon resources be discovered.” According to a report to the UN Security Council in early December, Israel has been in regular contact with Syrian rebels, including Islamic State fighters, raising the question of Israel’s role in supporting anti-Assad extremists to cement its control of Golan’s potential fossil fuel resources."

Israel to halt transfer of tax revenues to Palestinians following ICC bid

Israeli forces shoot 3 Palestinian shepherds near Nablus

Three Palestinian shepherds were injured on Saturday after Israeli forces and private security guards at a Jewish settlement opened fire on a crowd near Nablus.

Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian official who monitors settlement activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that several Israeli settlers attacked a group of shepherds in the area of Khirbet Yanun near the village of Aqraba and opened live fire at them after the group entered the area.

Israeli soldiers later entered the area and opened fire as well, hitting three men.

Al Aqsa Association for Waqf and Heritage has reported that Israelis carried out some 86 assaults and violations of Islamic and Christian Palestinian holy sites in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem in 2014.

VIDEO: “They look like they’re in a war zone, but what they’re aiming at is five-year-olds”

Israeli forces fired down the road leading from the checkpoint to the schools, filling the street adjacent to the schools with a choking cloud of gas and preventing Palestinians walking through the checkpoint from continuing down the street. As it is exam season in al-Khalil’s schools, children were attempting to reach school between seven and eight am and leaving again between nine thirty and eleven. Israeli military forces kept up a sporadic barrage of fire from the time some children were still walking to school until after school finished, forcing anyone traveling in either direction to brave whistling tear gas canisters and the dizzying smoke which still lingered even after the shooting had halted.

Israeli settlers uproot 5000 olive tree saplings near Turmusayya

Jewish settlers have uprooted more than 5,000 olive tree saplings in agricultural lands east of the town of Turmusayya in the central West Bank north of Ramallah, locals said Thursday.

One of the owners of the lands targeted, Awad Abu Samra, told Ma'an that in the last week settlers have repeatedly raided the area to attack the olive tree saplings.

Israeli settlers attack US consulate convoy in the West Bank (Updated)

On Friday, American security personnel accompanying staff from the United States Consulate in Jerusalem drew their weapons on violent Israeli settlers who attacked a two vehicle U.S. convoy outside the Palestinian town of Turmusaya in the West Bank. Consulate staff were investigating a incident which took place on private Palestinian land on the first night of 2015 when six thousand recently planted olive saplings were uprooted, and dozens of old olive trees were destroyed by violent Jewish settlers from an illegal outpost, Adei Ad, near Turmusaya.

America stabs its Arab allies in the back

The US-Arab alliance is one of the strangest and most interesting in the world, perhaps even in history. It is certainly the most one-sided, whereby America takes everything from its Arab allies and gives them nothing in return. The US attitude is disrespectful, untactful and inflexible. Washington gives Arab governments nothing to work with and nothing to give to their people, not even a fig leaf for appearances' sake.

The most recent example of this disrespect by the US was its open contempt for its Arab allies when it voted against the draft UN Security Council resolution to end the Israeli occupation of part of the occupied Palestinian territories. This resolution is based on what is known as "international legitimacy" despite the fact that the Palestinians went to the Security Council stripped of all their historical rights. However, this did not help them or gain the acceptance of Washington, which seems to disregard the Palestinians in particular and the Arabs in general.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What those Arab oil nations ought to do is all at once agree to sell their oil for the Ruble and the Yuan.

One killed in Gaza by Egypt border guards: Sources

At least one Palestinian has been killed in the frontier town of Rafah in the besieged Gaza Strip by Egyptian soldiers firing from across the border, sources say.

"A Palestinian citizen, aged 23, was killed by Egyptian army fire on the Egyptian-Palestinian border and the security agencies are investigating the incident to find out the motives," Gaza's Interior Ministry spokesman Iyad al-Bazm said in a message on his Facebook page on Friday.

The Egyptian forces shot the unnamed man "in the back and the bullet settled in the heart. He died on the spot," Gaza’s emergency services spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra said.

On Tuesday, Egyptian authorities said they would double the width of a security buffer zone currently under construction along the Gaza border, claiming that the move will prevent Gazans from entering Egypt.

What would Happen if the Int’l Criminal Court Indicted Israel’s Netanyahu?

If the International Criminal Court takes up Israeli government actions in the occupied Palestinian territories, it could well find specific officials guilty of breaches of the Rome Statute of 2002. Article 7 forbids “Crimes against Humanity,” which are systematically repeated war crimes. Among these offenses is murder, forcible deportation or transfer of members of a group, torture, persecution of Palestinians (an “identifiable group”) and “the crime of Apartheid.”

Prince Andrew and Alan Dershowitz named in US lawsuit over underage sex allegations

British press reports today that a woman claims that Jewish banker Jeffrey Epstein loaned her to rich and powerful friends as an underage “sex slave.” The woman has alleged in a US court document that she was repeatedly forced to have sexual relations with Prince Andrew and Alan Dershowitz.

The woman, who filed the motion anonymously, alleges that between 1999 and 2002 she was repeatedly sexually abused by Epstein who, she also alleges, loaned her out to rich and influential men around the world.

The British press is obviously interested in developments related to prince Andrew. But I am actually curious to hear what the ethnic cleansing enthusiast Alan Dershowitz has to say in his defence.

CAN YOU PICTURE A MAP OF THE MIDDLE EAST WITHOUT ISRAEL ON IT?

Collins Bartholomew, a map-publishing company that is a subsidiary of HarperCollins, said that including Israel in its “Collins Primary Geography Atlas For The Middle East” would have been “unacceptable” to their customers in the Gulf and that leaving Israel off the maps incorporated “local preferences.”

While Israel is not demarcated on the maps, the West Bank is clearly labeled.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I had originally assumed this was a simple mistake, due to Israel's small size relative to the scale of the map. But this admission that HarperCollins intentionally altered the maps to please certain customers calls into the question the validity of every map they produce.

The settlers spread amongst nearby olive trees and embarked on attacking and stoning the passing Palestinian cars in the presence of Israeli soldiers, eyewitnesses said.

With Israel ‘war crimes’ gambit, PA risks loss of US funding

In initiating a war crimes probe against Israel with the International Criminal Court, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas may fall afoul of US legislation that would mandate defunding the PA. The US funds the PA to the tune of some $400 million per year.

Even if Abbas’s ICC investigation gambit does not play out — and Palestine’s route ahead at the ICC is strewn with legal obstacles — it is viewed by many leaders of the incoming Republican-controlled Congress as the latest justification to reexamine the PA’s American funding.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Should the US stop funding the PA, other, more local, Middle Eastern countries could well pick up the slack, like Qatar.

ANOTHER LETTER THE NEW YORK TIMES WOULD SURELY DEEM UNFIT TO PRINT

I started writing this as a Letter to the Editor, but my anger could not be conveyed in only 150 words, so I am posting this open letter instead:

Readers expect greater accuracy from New York Times columnists.

How dare Mr. Roger Cohen suggest that Gaza, a part of my homeland, is “nowhere!”

If Mr. Cohen is at a loss to know where Gaza lies, allow me to guide him. The Gaza Strip, as well as Gaza City, were both part and parcel of Historic Palestine, between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River. Following the colossal injustice that resulted in the displacement of more than half of the Palestinian people, and then the creation of what we know today as the state of Israel, and the subsequent military occupation of the remaining Palestinian lands of the West Bank and Gaza Strip, the Gaza Strip become part and parcel of an Israeli-militarily-occupied territory. It is this military occupation under which many of my friends and colleagues were born and live to this day.

Palestinians To Join International Criminal Court

Turning up the pressure on Israel, the Palestinians announced Wednesday that they are joining the International Criminal Court to pursue war-crimes charges against the Jewish state — a risky, high-stakes move that brought threats of retaliation from Israel and criticism from the U.S.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas acted a day after suffering a defeat in the U.N. Security Council, which voted down a resolution setting a three-year deadline for the establishment of a Palestinian state on lands occupied by Israel.

"We want to complain. There's aggression against us, against our land. The Security Council disappointed us," Abbas said.

Turning to the international court at The Hague marks a major policy shift, transforming Abbas' relations with Israel from tense to openly hostile. The ultimate goal is to pressure Israel into withdrawing from the territories and agreeing to Palestinian statehood.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And the countless killings of innocent Palestinians by the IDF are not "hostile" acts?!? Operation Protective Edge was not "hostile"?!? The brisk annexation of Palestinian land for Jewish only settlements is not "hostile"?!?

IF these acts are not "hostile", I cannot tell you what IS supposed to be hostile!

Comments on Palestine's UN Failure

Defeated by US pressure. Its veto power. Supporting virtually everything Israel wants. Two nations united against Palestinian liberation. Determined to prevent it.

Wanting Palestinians held hostage. Under permanent bondage. Controlling virtually all aspects of their lives.

Denying them fundamental rights. Collectively punishing them. Leaving them isolated on their own. Longstanding injustice continues.

Palestine declared independence years ago. Previous articles explained. Law Professor Francis Boyle drafted its 1988 Declaration of Independence.

Predicting a "instantaneous success." De jure UN membership. Saying Palestine meets all basic requirements for statehood. Then and now.

'US an enemy': Palestinian official blasts Washington over UNSC statehood veto

Palestine will start an international campaign showcasing the US as “an enemy,” pushing Israeli extremists to carry on with their actions and supporting Israel in everything, Fatah central committee member Abbas Zaki said.

Zaki, also the former representative of the Palestine Liberation Organization in Lebanon, told RT Arabic that the latest developments in the UNSC were not a failure for Palestinian diplomacy.

“It’s just the persistent unwillingness of the US administration to give the Palestinian people its lawful right of self-determination. It’s a very dangerous precedent,” he said.

Fireworks in Ramallah, as Abbas signs treaty to join International Criminal Court

Fireworks are exploding throughout Ramallah in celebration of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’s surprise move to sign the Rome Statute along with 21 other international treaties, one day after his draft resolution seeking to end Israel’s occupation through negotiations failed to pass the United Nations Security Council.

Abbas had held off in the past on acceding to the Rome Statute, which allows the Palestinian government to present charges against Israel in the International Criminal Court (ICC). The signing tonight was unexpected.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It was not unexpected. It was the obvious next step.

US 'Strongly Opposes' PA ICC Request

The United States said Wednesday it "strongly opposes" a request from the Palestinian Authority to join the International Criminal Court (ICC), fearing this will further delay peace talks with Israel.

"It would be counterproductive and would do nothing to further the aspirations of the Palestinian people for a sovereign and independent state," the State Department said. "It will badly damage the atmosphere with the very people with whom they ultimately need to make peace."

"As we've said before, the United States continues to strongly oppose actions -- by both parties -- that undermine trust and create doubts about their commitment to a negotiated peace," it continued. "Our position has not changed. Such actions only push the parties further
apart."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US is doing its level best to keep the criminal activities of the IDF and Israeli government against the Palestinians as quiet as possible; with the Palestinian Authority becoming a signatory to the ICC, that will be rendered impossible.

The level of embarrassment the US government will experience will be pretty uncomfortable, when neither they, nor Israel can dictate the narrative here.

Palestinian resolution fails at the Security Council, U.S. votes against ‘staged confrontation’ at the UN

The Palestinian leadership’s resolution to end Israel’s occupation through negotiations failed to pass the United Nations Security Council this evening. While Palestinian leaders had hoped to garner the nine votes needed to be approved by the 15-member council, only eight countries supported the measure. The United States and Australia voted against it while five others abstained.

“The Security Council has once again failed to uphold its charter duties to address theses crises and to meaningfully contribute to a peaceful and lasting solution in accordance with its own resolutions,” said Palestine’s representative to the United Nations Riyad Mansour.

WHO IS THE THREAT TO WORLD PEACE? CHRISTIANS, JEWS, OR MUSLIMS (The US, Israel, or Iran)!

Since the 1979 Iranian revolution and the downfall of the US Puppet Ruler the Shah, Iran has been an Islamic state. In that interval of time, 1979 to the present, Iran has not invaded anyone. Not once. In fact Iran has not launched a war of aggression against another nation in 200 years. War is not their nature. People of all religions live in peace in Iran, even Jews, who find life so comfortable in Iran they refused an offer by the government of Israel to emigrate!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am reposting this article because as word comes down that Obama may reopen the US embassy in Tehran, the promoters of war are already screaming again that Iran is just two months away from a nuclear bomb, a claim they have been making since the 1980s, even though the IAEA acknowledges that Iran has complied with the preliminary P5+1 agreement regarding their nuclear technology.

Jimmy Carter: From Nobel Prize to 'Terrorist' Ties

After losing the White House to Republican Ronald Reagan in 1980, Carter established the Carter Center two years later with his wife, Rosalynn, to continue his global humanitarian work.

He won his own Nobel prize in 2002 for his human-rights work. Carter turned 90 on Oct. 1.

But those years have also seen Carter voicing strong anti-Israel views and support for terrorist groups. His 2006 book — "Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid" — came under widespread attack for asserting that Israel's settlement on Palestinian land was the main impediment to peace in the Middle East.

He also has met with leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood and has accused Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of being too eager to go to war with Iran over its nuclear ambitions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Note how a President is lauded as long as he serves Israel, but when he rightly criticizes Israel, he is labeled a supporter of terrorism!

Penn group nixes Chris Hedges as speaker following Israel-ISIS comparison

Former New York Times Middle East bureau chief Chris Hedges said he was disinvited to speak at a University of Pennsylvania conference following a column comparing Israel to ISIS.

Hedges, now a columnist for the Truthdig.com website, was to speak at an April forum on prospects for peace in the Middle East sponsored by the university’s International Affairs Association.

Zachary Michael Belnavis, a student leader of the association, wrote to the lecture agency that his group didn’t see Hedges as a “suitable fit” for the conference.

“We’re saying this in light of a recent article he’s written in which he compares the organization ISIS to Israel (here’s the article in question),” Belnavis wrote. “In light of this comparison, we don’t believe he would be suitable to a co-existence speaker based on this stance he’s taken.”

Beneficiaries of their largesse include GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney; Democrats Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Eliot Engel; the Republican National Committee; and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. In addition, the family has given hundreds of thousands of dollars to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s political campaigns.

President Obama Defends Iran Nuclear Deal to Israeli Policy Forum

President Obama said today “We don’t know yet” whether the agreement reached with Iran last month will succeed in keeping the country from producing nuclear weapons, but he asserted that there are “unprecedented” fail-safe mechanisms to keep the agreement from failing, as others have in the past.

The president defended the deal today at a Mideast policy conference, where he was asked what made the sweeping, if tentative pact — which Israel opposed — “different” from the failed nuclear agreements pursued by Presidents Reagan with Pakistan and Clinton with North Korea.

“Well, we don’t know yet. We don’t know yet.” Obama said at the Brookings Institute’s Saban Forum. “I think it’s important for everybody to understand: This is hard, because the technology of the nuclear cycle you can get off the Internet. The knowledge of creating a nuclear weapon is already out there.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is getting interesting. It looks like Israel's push for a US invasion of Iran is starting to falter!

Palestinians to push ahead with UN resolution

The Palestinian leadership has presented changes to a UN draft resolution that could set a timeframe for the creation of a Palestinian state.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas told US Secretary of State John Kerry he would press ahead with a resolution calling for a peace deal with Israel within a year with an "end to occupation" of Palestinian territories by late 2017, state news agency WAFA reported.

The revised resolution calls for occupied East Jerusalem to be the capital of Palestine, an end to Israeli settlement building and settling the issue of Palestinian prisoner releases.

Arab UN delegations meeting in New York on Monday endorsed the proposal.

Dina Kawar, Jordan's UN Ambassador and the sole Arab representative on the UN Security Council, said the revised text would be submitted to the council later on Monday.

TEL AVIV DONS ITS GAY APPAREL

Israel has gained the reputation as being the world’s champion of …

APR (Anti Palestinian Rights)

ABR (Anti Black Rights)

AWR (Anti Women Rights)

AGR (Anti Gentile Rights)

BUT

To guarantee its flow of foreign currency, it had to become ‘Pro Something’ …

SO

Two recent stories in The New York Times involve violence against Palestinian and Israeli children. But it is striking how differently the stories are treated based on the identity of the victim.

The first, from today, is headlined “Israeli Girl Severely Wounded in Firebomb Attack in West Bank.” The second, from November, is headlined “Palestinian Shot by Israeli Troops at Gaza Border.” Both are by Isabel Kershner.

FOR PALESTINIANS, GETTING TO WORK IN ISRAEL IS A JOB IN ITSELF

The next time an Israeli with a conscience refrains from buying sneakers or a cellphone made in Asian sweatshops, he or she should remember: The most brutal sweatshop is next to their homes.

Over the past three years, Israel has taken pride in the fact that in the American State Department’s report on human trafficking, it ranked highest for its success in stamping it out. Israel wiped away the disgrace of its disregard of trafficking in women, which had been prevalent here from the 1990s until the early 2000s. But recently, trafficking in women has come back into our lives...

407 Jewish settlers forced way into Al-Aqsa for Hanukkah

At least 407 Jewish settlers forced their way into East Jerusalem's flashpoint Al-Aqsa Mosque complex during this week's Hanukkah holidays, a Palestinian NGO said Thursday.

The Al-Aqsa Foundation for Endowments and Heritage said that, from Sunday to Thursday, 407 Israelis – protected by Israeli police – had conducted individual and group tours inside the mosque complex.

Of these, 52 were young Israeli troops who entered the complex in military uniform as part of a so-called "guidance and exploration" program, the NGO said.

"Occupation forces harassed Muslim worshippers at the gates of the mosque complex, arresting 20 over the past week," it added.

It went on to say that detained worshippers had been subsequently released after being subject to monetary fines and barred from entering the Al-Aqsa complex for periods ranging from two weeks to one month.

Israeli officials could not be reached for comment on the issue.

Or does a bomb becoming suicidal only when it is set to hit a Jewish strategic target?
