TODAY’S SPOOF ~~THIS WALL WILL ALSO FALL!

The Berlin Wall officially fell on Nov. 9, 1989, after having divided the German capital for nearly 30 years.

“No matter how high walls are built, they will fall. Just as the Berlin Wall fell, the wall in Palestine will fall, along with the occupation.”

Hamas announces creation of 'popular army' for 'liberation of al-Aksa'

Hamas declared the creation of a "popular army" at the Jabaliya refugee camp in the Northern Gaza Strip on Friday, according to a report by the AFP.

A spokesman for the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades - Hamas's military branch - said the 2,500 recruits would form "the first section of the popular army for the liberation of Al-Aksa and of Palestine," according the AFP report,

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Assuming this is accurate, HAMAS has just walked into the trap Netanyahu set for them by attacking the worshipers at the mosque on the fourth!

Explosions as Palestine erupts in 'Day of Rage' against Israel Al-Aqsa mosque restrictions

Clashes broke out after Palestinian protesters took to the streets in a “Day of Rage” against Israel on Friday, after Israel imposed entry restrictions on the Al-Aqsa mosque – the third holiest site in Islam, and the holiest place in Judaism.

Demonstrators shouted anti-Israel slogans and hurled stones, while explosions in the vicinity of the protests were audible. Israeli forces fired rubber bullets at the protesters, who had been throwing petrol bombs, according to Reuters. Protests were also met with tear gas.

#JSIL? Amnesty UK official compares IDF to ISIS, Israel outraged

A senior human rights group official has likened the Israel Defense Force (IDF) to the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS, ISIL). Kristyan Benedict, Amnesty International’s UK campaigns manager, tweeted the hashtag #JSIL, condemning summer’s Gaza assault.

The tweet was in response to the Israeli Embassy’s reaction to Amnesty International’s report, published on 6th November, which accused the IDF of war crimes during the Israel/Gaza conflict in July and August.

Turkey declares protecting al-Aqsa its mission

Turkish leaders have said protecting Islamic sites in the Holy Land is a sacred mission for them, with President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an bluntly warning any attack against the 8th-century al-Aqsa Mosque is no different than an attack on the Kaaba in the holy city of Mecca.

“The Israeli administration has to stop this despicableness, this barbarity; what would it say if this kind of attack had been launched against synagogues? The Masjid al-Aqsa is not only a shrine for Palestinians, but is the shrine of all Muslims,” Erdo?an was quoted as saying on Nov. 7 during an official visit to the Turkmen capital, Ashgabat.

“This action, this attempt launched against the Masjid al-Aqsa can never be forgiven. Attacking the Masjid al-Aqsa is like attacking the Kabaa,” Erdo?an added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Turkey is just as pissed off that the ICC dropped the war crimes case against Israel over the Mavi Marmara as anyone else. Here is where it all comes back to bite Israel!

FLASHBACK 2010 - Israeli fugitive to pay $54m to settle U.S. fraud suit

Jacob "Kobi" Alexander, the fugitive former chief executive of Comverse Technology Inc,
agreed to pay nearly $54 million to resolve civil litigation brought by the U.S. government over the backdating of stock options, court papers show.

The settlement also resolves a civil lawsuit by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. It was announced by U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch in the Eastern District of New York.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, our incoming Attorney General is as corrupt as the outgoing one. No surprise there. I guess. Wrist-slap for massive stock fraud, and of course not a mention that Comverse Infosys was at the heart of the Israeli spy ring uncovered by the FBI just prior to 9-11!

Going against Netanyahu, 84 percent of US Jews favor Iran nuclear deal

As President Obama presses to reach an accord with Iran on its nuclear program by the end of the month, he can count on strong support from what might seem like an unlikely segment of the population: American Jews.

Jewish backing of the administration’s efforts to strike a deal suggests that American Jews aren’t heeding the alarms being sounded in Israel by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He warns that any deal that leaves Iran with an enrichment program constitutes a mortal danger to Israel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel has been crying wolf (or Nuclear Duck) about an imminent Iranian nuclear bomb since the 1980s, and like the constant wagging of Hitler and the Nazis, we are all pretty much sick and tired of it all.

FLASHBACK 2013 - Israel Forcibly Injected African Immigrants with Birth Control, Report Claims

This weekend, a report revealing that African women immigrating to Israel were subjected to mandatory contraceptive injections, effectively amounting to forced (if temporary) sterilization made global headlines.

Some 130,000 Ethiopians, most of them Jewish, live in Israel. The community experiences higher poverty and unemployment rates than the rest of the country’s Jewish population. In the past decade, the birth rate among Ethiopian-Israelis has declined by at least 20 percent. Advocacy groups now claim this decline is the result of a birth control regimen forced upon Ethiopian immigrant women.

The Nuclear Threat from Israeli Submarines (The Samson Option)

Now here is something we had not thought about and we should have because its far more likely to occur than any other attack against us, given our history of that occurring against us with that nation except for a false flag, but then isn't Israel usually involved in all of those so far, along with our treasonous leaders????

The third intifada is here

Periodic situation evaluations of the Israel Defense Forces’ (IDF) highest command echelons warned that the harsh economic situation, lack of a diplomatic horizon and overall feeling of frustration and that there is no way out are likely to be the catalysts. Shin Bet assessments disseminated in 2013 even showed worrisome data regarding growing unrest in the West Bank, and painted the picture of the lone terrorist going out on his own to carry out an attack without the backing of organizational infrastructure. These assessments even led to closer security cooperation between Israel and the Palestinian Authority with the goal of detecting and thwarting the first signs of terrorist organization if and when they appear on the ground.

But apparently the Israeli security system didn't imagine that the third intifada it had anticipated, warned against and prepared for would erupt specifically in Jerusalem, and with such intensity.

Israel’s Attack on USS LIBERTY airs on Al Jazeera America

Al Jazeera America is broadcasting a new Documentary on the USS Liberty, “The Day Israel Attacked America,” produced by British filmmaker Richard Belfield who wrote: LIBERTY

I was first told about the attack on the USS Liberty in 1980 over dinner with a former analyst from the National Security Agency (NSA) in Washington DC…

The [LIBERTY] veterans were extraordinary. One after another, they were generous with their time, uniformly eloquent and passionate and above all, honest in their recollections.

They all felt betrayed by the American government but were keen to exonerate ordinary Jewish people both in Israel and without, for any responsibility for the incident.

Their beef was simply with the senior Israeli officers in the control room and their superiors higher up the command chain who had ordered the attack.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

BUMP TO THE TOP

Claire and I watched (and recorded) this program the other night. It is well worth seeing and sharing (link below). Constrained by the hour time frame, the program does not go into every detail but focuses primarily on the attack and how Israel literally bribed and blackmailed the US Government to go along with the official story of "accident." Left out of the story is Israel's attempt to frame Egypt for the attack, and the ordering by President Johnson to recall a rescue mission. But it is still a documentary worth watching to see the faces and hear the words of the men who were really there, rather than the sanitized official version that followed.

Perhaps the most shameful event in the entire story was the awarding of the Congressional Medal of Honor to Captain William L. McGonagle in a secret ceremony at the Navy Yard; the only time in history the Congressional Medal of Honor was not awarded personally by the President at the White House. Johnson was just four miles away at the time.

The Day Israel Attacked America

In 1967, at the height of the Arab-Israeli Six-Day War, the Israeli Air Force launched an unprovoked attack on the USS Liberty, a US Navy spy ship that was monitoring the conflict from the safety of international waters in the Mediterranean.

Israeli jet fighters hit the vessel with rockets, cannon fire and napalm, before three Israeli torpedo boats moved in to launch a second more devastating attack. Though she did not sink, the Liberty was badly damaged. Thirty-four US servicemen and civilian analysts were killed, another 171 were wounded.

Later Israel apologised for what it claimed to be a tragic case of mistaken identity. It said that it had believed the ship to be hostile Egyptian naval vessel. US President Lyndon Johnson was privately furious but publicly the White House chose not to challenge the word of its closest Middle East ally and accepted that the attack had been a catastrophic accident.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the official Al Jazeera page for their recent documentary "The Day Israel Attacked America." Sadly it does not include the video itself, which is being scrubbed from YouTube as fas as they go up.

But what is worth reading are the comments on this page by Israel's defenders, who as usual are screaming that this is all an anti-Semitic plot!However, yesterday, no less than the Jerusalem Post confirmed that the government of Israel KNEW they were attacking an American ship when they attacked the USS Liberty.

No doubt the commenters below will now start screaming that the Jerusalem Post is anti-Semitic!

Left unmentioned in the Al Jazeera documentary (but covered in earlier ones) was that this was a naval variation of the Lavon Affair in which Israel attacked an American asset while framing Egypt for it, and the US was preparing an air strike against Egypt when the USS Liberty finally got a radio message out identifying who their real attackers were, which is the moment when Israel quit trying to sink the ship.

What is significant about the Al Jazeera docuentary is how much attention it has attracted. As I mentioned above, there have been previous documentaries about the USS Liberty such as BBC's "Dead in the Water", which came and went with little notice. That the current documentary has gained so much traction underscores that people are more willing to take an objective look at Israel's behavior these days, undeterred by screams of "anti-Semite" and "Jew Hater", accompanied by endless wagging of Hitler and the Nazis.

Inside the UN Resolution on Depleted Uranium

On October 31, a new United Nations General Assembly First Committee resolution on depleted uranium (DU) weapons passed overwhelmingly. There were 143 states in favor, four against, and 26 abstentions. The measure calls for UN member states to provide assistance to countries contaminated by the weapons. The resolution also notes the need for health and environmental research on depleted uranium weapons in conflict situations.

This fifth UN resolution on the subject was fiercely opposed by four depleted uranium-shooting countries — Britain, the United States, France and Israel — who cast the only votes in opposition. The 26 states that abstained reportedly sought to avoid souring lucrative trade relationships with the four major shooters.

The situation in Jerusalem is 'out of control'

The clashes between Israeli forces and Palestinian citizens, and protest demonstrations quickly escalated since Wednesday's Israeli attack of the building of the Aqsa mosque compound, and Ibrahim Akkari's run over, who was immediately shot in Jerusalem.

Clashes in Jerusalem and the West Bank have been successive, after Akkari's funeral in Jerusalem, which Israeli occupation allowed only 35 members of his family to attend.

The funeral limitation aggravated the clashes all over Jerusalem neighborhoods, where two Palestinian citizens were injured by Israeli bullets and one Israeli border guard was injured of stone throwing in Shu'fat refugee camp south occupied Jerusalem.

Clashes took place in Issawiya, Hizma and Al-Toor neighborhoods south Jerusalem, where Palestinians utilized fireworks and stones to defend themselves.

Outrage as ICC Drops Case Against Israel for Deadly Attack On Humanitarian Flotilla

The International Criminal Court is being accused of "defying justice" following Thursday's announcement that prosecutors will not further investigate or press charges against Israel for its 2010 deadly assault on a Gaza-bound flotilla bearing humanitarian aid from Turkey.

The ruling came despite the court's acknowledgement that Israel likely committed war crimes.

Obama sent letter to Iran's Khamenei; Israel kept in the dark

U.S. President Barack Obama sent a secret letter to Iran's Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei last month, in which he wrote that the two nations have shared interests in fighting the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria, the Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday.

Obama sent the letter in mid-October, sources told the Wall Street Journal, and used it to stress that any cooperation between Iran and the U.S. would hinge upon reaching an agreement with Western powers over Iran's nuclear program by the November 24 deadline.

The White House did not update Israel or Gulf States such as Saudi Arabia or the Emirates about the letter, according to the report.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently Iran was not impressed.

Israeli police, settlers storm Jerusalem’s al-Aqsa Mosque compound

A group of Israeli settlers stormed Jerusalem’s flashpoint al-Aqsa Mosque compound on Nov. 5 following clashes between Israeli police forces and Palestinians inside the complex, a Palestinian official said.

“The Israeli police allowed the settlers to enter and storm the compound and are now providing them protection,” said Sheikh Azzam al-Khatib, director-general of the Organization for Muslim Endowments and al-Aqsa Affairs, a Palestinian NGO.

The incident occurred after violent clashes, during which scores of Palestinians were injured.

“At least 15 Palestinian were injured by rubber bullets, including two in the head and one in the eye, while dozens suffered teargas inhalation,” a Palestinian guard of the holy complex told Anadolu Agency.

If Israel Outlaws Palestinian Political Voices, Declare One State

The Israeli state prosecutor will open a case against Zoabi for “criminal incitement” because the police provocatively assigned two Israeli Palestinian female officers to provoke her at one of her public appearances. The MK called them “collaborators,” which of course they were. A new Knesset bill proposed by the far-right Yisrael Beitenu would prohibit anyone “supporting terrorism” from running for Knesset. Another would strip Zoabi, specifically of citizenship.

The “proof” she supported terrorism is that in an interview:

Zoabi described an Israeli Air Force pilot as “no less a terrorist than a person who takes a knife and commits a beheading.” She added that “both are armies of murderers, they have no boundaries and no red lines.”

(WAR) BUSINESS AS USUAL IN ISRAEL

Israel and the United States used the inauguration of a joint warplane project on Tuesday to stress it was business as usual in an alliance hit by acrimony over Israeli settlement building and strategy against Iran.

At a ceremony at the Israeli manufacturer of wings for Lockheed Martin Corp’s F-35 jet fighter, Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon described his country’s participation in the project as evidence that bilateral ties were bulletproof.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and U.S. President Barack Obama have often been at odds over how to respond to Palestinian statehood demands or balance diplomacy and the threat of force in curbing Iran’s disputed nuclear program.

Jerusalem Post confirms Israel knew USS Liberty was American

A 2004 transcript of an Israeli military tape published in the Jerusalem Post supports the claim in a new documentary that Israeli forces knew the USS Liberty was an American ship, as they attempted to sink it.

The documentary, "The Day Israel Attacked America," is directed and produced by British film maker Richard Belfield and was broadcast on the Al Jazeera America channel last week.

Israel has long maintained, with official US government inquiries agreeing, that the attack was a case of mistaken identity. However, a growing chorus of critics, and the USS Liberty survivors themselves, say the official reports are cover-ups of an incident in which American sailors were ruthlessly, deliberately attacked in order to draw the US into war with Egypt, by blaming it for the loss of the ship with all hands. Israel was engaged in the Six Day War with Egypt and other Arab states at the time.

The Silence of the Israelis on ISIS

How 'peace envoy' Tony Blair enables Israeli raids in illegally occupied West Bank

WORDS CAN lose their meaning when Tony Blair speaks. Collecting his “philanthropist of the year” award from GQ magazine, Blair recently said he could feel the “pulse of progress beating a little harder.”

Judging by the pronouncements he has made as a Middle East “peace envoy,” Blair’s definition of “progress” appears different from the standard one.

In 2010, Blair hailed a tiny easing of Israel’s siege on Gaza as a “significant change.” The following year he praised Hosni Mubarak, the Egyptian dictator who facilitated that siege, as a “force for good.”

And earlier this month, Blair claimed that John Kerry was “absolutely tireless” in his efforts to promote peace, conveniently forgetting that the US secretary of state had publicly endorsed Israel’s attack on Gaza during the summer.

Israel, jihadists seeking to ignite civil war in Lebanon: Ibrahim

Israel and Islamist militants are seeking to ignite civil war in Lebanon, General Security head Abbas Ibrahim wrote in an editorial published Thursday.

"Independence Day arrives while Lebanon battles the odds ... in an ordeal not destined to end until [Lebanon’s] inevitable victory in the battle for existence and identity in the face of organized terrorism, which is seeking to ... strike at its elements of existence through inciting [sectarian] strife and setting the stage for a civil war by targeting the military institution and other security agencies,” Ibrahim said in the article for the November issue of General Security Magazine.

Amnesty: Israel committed war crimes in Gaza Strip

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM: Amnesty International Wednesday accused Israel of committing war crimes during the war in the Gaza Strip this summer, saying it displayed “callous indifference” in attacks on family homes in the densely populated coastal area.

The Gaza war left more than 2,100 Palestinians dead, including many civilians according to Palestinian and U.N. officials. Israel says the number of militants killed was much higher and accuses Hamas of using civilians as human shields. On the Israeli side, 66 soldiers and six civilians were killed.

Amnesty said in a report that “Israeli forces killed scores of Palestinian civilians in attacks targeting houses full of families, which in some cases have amounted to war crimes.”

TERRORISM IS LEGAL IN CANADA

The JDL is a Kahanist organization that has been banned in Israel and the United States as a terrorist group. Its Canadian branch has been implicated in a long line of vigilante violence and fear-mongering. The fact that such a piece of dreck can solicit in a respectable Jewish establishment should make us sick to our collective stomachs.

But it doesn’t. That’s because the North American Jewish community, like its Christian and atheist counterpart, is infected with the scourge of Islamophobia. I define Islamophobia in the same way I define anti-Semitism: the delegitimization of a faith and the propagation of stereotypes and prejudice against its adherents. And it is endemic in our community.

Jordan recalls envoy to Israel over al-Asqa Mosque clashes

Jordan has recalled its ambassador to Israel and moved to lodge a complaint at the United Nations amid attacks by Israeli troops on Palestinians at the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in East al-Quds (Jerusalem).

On Wednesday, Jordanian Prime Minister Abdullah Nsur asked Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh to recall the Jordanian ambassador, Walid Obeidat, from Tel Aviv in protest at what he described as Israeli violations in al-Quds and the holy sites there.

The Jordanian prime minister also instructed the country’s delegation at the UN to file a formal complaint with the UN Security Council against Israel.

Many Injuries Reported as Israeli soldiers Invade Al-Aqsa Mosque

Dozens of Israeli soldiers invaded, on Wednesday morning, the grounds of the Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied Jerusalem, assaulted the worshipers with concussion grenades, gas bombs and rubber-coated metal bullets, and invaded the main mosque within the compound.

The Maan News Agency said dozens of soldiers invaded the yards of the mosque through the al-Magharba Gate and the Chain Gate (Bab as-Silsila) and assaulted dozens of worshipers who managed to reach the mosque yards.

Sheikh Azzam al-Khatib, head of the Islamic Waqf and Endowment in Jerusalem, stated that dozens of soldiers invaded the al-Qibli mosque while heavily armed.

Al-Khatib denounced the military desecration of the mosque, and this serious violation, especially since the soldiers violated the sanctity of the mosque, wearing their shoes and carrying their weapons into the house of prayer, in a serious escalation and assault.

Mr. Hamdan was taken to a hospital in Beit Jala for treatment, locals said, without providing further details, other than that he had been lightly injured.

ON JUNE 8, 1967, while patrolling in international waters in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea, USS Liberty (AGTR-5) was savagely attacked without warning or justification by air and naval forces of the state of Israel. Of a crew of 294 officers and men (including three civilians), the ship suffered thirty four (34) killed in action and one hundred seventy three (173) wounded in action. The ship itself, a Forty Million ($40,000,000) Dollar state of the art signals intelligence (SIGINT) platform, was so badly damaged that it never sailed on an operational mission again and was sold in 1970 for $101,666.66 as scrap.

Repeated failures compound Netanyahu’s Al-Aqsa predicament

The recent closure of the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem by the Israeli government constitutes yet more evidence that peace between Israel and the Palestinians has never been more distant.

The Al-Aqsa mosque, located in Jerusalem’s Old City, is the third holiest site in Islam. It sits within an enclosed compound known as the Noble Sanctuary, which also includes the Dome of the Rock, an Islamic shrine built on the site of the sacred stone which is believed to mark the place from where the Prophet Muhammad ascended to heaven. The Dome of the Rock is also believed by Jewish scholars to be the location of the first and second temples, both of which were destroyed – the first by the Babylonians in 586 BCE, the second by the Romans in 70 CE. Within Judaism the entire area, including Al-Aqsa, is known as Temple Mount and is equally as sacred.

The Jew, The Left And Whatever is Left

Gilad Atzmon: I have no doubt that Soral’s ‘issue’ with ‘the Jew’ has nothing to do with ethnicity or race. Soral is critical of Jewish culture and politics and his thoughts on the subject are both valid and timely.

We’ve been trained to believe in the value of a consistent critique and continual revision of politics and culture. However, it seems that many Jews believe that Jewish politics and culture are beyond criticism. For some bizarre reason, a number of major institutions of the Left agree that Jewish culture and politics are not open to evaluation. I guess this affirms that, at least in the eyes of the Left and the Jews, the chosen people are actually chosen for real.

Israeli settlements: 'Unfortunate' or illegal?

Answering a question on November 3 about Israel's new construction plans in East Jerusalem, the US State Department spokeswoman said they were "unfortunate". Why didn't she say "illegal"?

There is pretty much a consensus among international lawyers, except in Israel, that the Israeli settlements in the occupied territories including East Jerusalem are illegal. The basis for this is article 49 of the fourth Geneva Convention adopted in 1949: "The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies."

Israel, it appears, has no more right to build settlements than the UK or the US would have had to build British or American settlements in Iraq after the 2003 war.

What Do US Election Results Mean for US-Israel Relations?

Prof. Eytan Gilboa, an expert on American-Israeli relations, spoke with Arutz Sheva about what he deemed the "three major issues Israel is concerned about," that could be significantly impacted by this change in US legislative control.

The first - the war with Islamic State (ISIS). Although the United States has been launching airstrikes against the terrorist group in Syria and Iraq, many Republicans feel the Obama administration's foreign policy is not doing enough against what many constituents view as a "serious threat."

With the Republican victory an increase in military spending and a comprehensive debate over policy toward the Islamic State seems likely.

In other words, this election changed nothing. The US Government still bows to Israel, the economy will continue to loot the poor to give to the rich, your children will continue to die in wars.

89 Palestine families wiped out by Israel’s Gaza campaign

At least 89 entire families have been killed in Gaza since Israel started its military campaign, Palestinian health officials said. The Judeh family, a woman and her four children, died after an airstrike hit their house reportedly without warning.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel is still justifying this latest war crime on the basis of the three murdered teenagers in the West Bank by the "terrorist" group HAMAS, even though the local police in that area said there was no evidence to link the murders to HAMAS. But let us look at another incident to put this in context. Back in 2001, the leader of the Jewish Defense League (deemed a terrorist group by the FBI), Irv Rubin, was caught plotting to blow up a mosque in Culver City and assassinate Congressman Daryl Issa. The US did NOT proceed to bomb all of Israel, they simply arrested Irv Rubin and threw him into prison where he was "suicided" before he could testify at his trial as to the sources of his funding and weapons.

BEX ALERT - Democrats’ insults of Netanyahu might send Jews to GOP

There is one potential long-term effect that could occur. With U.S.-Israel relations at their lowest point in years, and Mr. Obama’s weak-kneed positions on Israel and the Middle East, this could serve as the last straw for American Jews and their relationship with Democrats.

Certainly, not all Jews base their voting behavior on White House ties with Israel. The views of two Democratic staffers don’t represent the entire party, either. Yet it’s hard not to think this direct and offensive criticism of the Israeli prime minister would go unnoticed by (normally) Jewish Democratic moderates and centrists.

This is Israel, trying to claim credit for the GOP victory last night, in order to continue to influence Congress.

In 1975, the US Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger, secretly brokered a deal in which the United States of America guaranteed Israel’s oil supply in the event of a crisis. The 1975 Israel-United States Memorandum of Understanding (see the full text below) required the United States to maintain an oil reserve for Israel and guarantee the shipping of that oil to Israel in times of emergency. This deal has cost the United States more than a hundred billion dollars since it was first enacted. The most troubling aspect of this deal was not the cost however, but the stipulation that in case of an oil emergency in which both the US and Israel needed oil, the US would give its oil to Israel. Section 3 (b):

BUT ….

Activists who are working to expose the evils of zionism are extremists according to the spokesmen of zion. Here is their definition … Of course, the definition of an ‘extremist’ is one for whom the real-world moral consequences of his or her actions are of little concern, especially in comparison to the imperative of maintaining fealty to a rigid – and often destructive – political ideology.

Israel OKs 400 new houses in east Jerusalem

Jerusalem's municipal committee approved the construction of 400 housing units in an east Jerusalem neighborhood on Monday afternoon, the municipality spokesperson confirmed to Xinhua.

The 400 housing units are set to be built in the northeast Jerusalem neighborhood of Ramat Shlomo.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and retiring Interior Minister Gideon Sa'ar both agreed to promote the construction in the neighborhood in a meeting last week and advanced the topic on the municipal commission's agenda, the Walla! news website reported.

A month ago, the same committee granted the final approval to the construction of a massive new neighborhood settlement, Givat Hamatos, in east Jerusalem, which is set to include 2,612 housing units.

The decision came just as Netanyahu arrived in the United States for a meeting with U.S. President Barack Obama. It heightened the already mounting tensions between the two countries.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a certainty about the actions the government of Israel will take, and one can always count on the Israeli government to consistently and publicly give the US government the middle finger when it comes to steps to ratchet down tensions between Israelis and Palestinians.

The approval of this settlement is only going to exacerbate tensions, and not reduce them.

The US-Israel Special Relationship Timeline That AIPAC Doesn’t Want You To See

Summer 1954- Lavon Affair- Israel recruits Egyptian Jews to blow up American and British targets in Egypt. Israel planned on blaming the murderous false-flag attacks on the Muslim Brotherhood in an effort to garner support from the US and Britain. After officially denying any involvement, the Israeli government finally admitted their role in the incident in 2005 by honoring the surviving agents with a certificate of appreciation.

1955-1970- Israel Steals American Uranium to Build It’s First Nuclear Weapons- In 2011, the Institute for Research on Middle Eastern Policy examined hundreds of newly de-classified documents from the FBI and CIA and discovered that Israeli spies in collaboration with American Jews stole hundreds of kilograms of weapons grade uranium from US stockpiles and shipped it to Israel. Although Israel does not officially acknowledge the possession of nuclear weapons, their nuclear arsenal is estimated at between 200-300 nuclear weapons. (Source)

The Day Israel Attacked America

One ally attacking another willfully is unheard of. Israel violated its special relationship.

What James Petras called "the first (instance) in modern history in which the imperial country cover(ed) up a deliberate major military assault by a supposed ally."

He referred to the 1967 USS Liberty attack. An intelligence-gathering ship. On June 8. In international waters. About 25.5 nautical miles northwest of Egypt's Sinai Peninsula.

Webmaster's Commentary:

This latest documentary has gone viral, signaling not a change in the story but a change in the audience and a willingness to see Israel for what it truly is.

War Crimes Off The Radar Emboldens the Perpetrator

The danger of allowing a country (or a ‘gang’ of criminals) to get away with murder, is that they become emboldened to kill more people. That is human nature.

And this is what has happened with Israel. 47 years ago they deliberately murdered 34 Americans – and they were allowed to get away with it. Israel jammed Liberty’s communications, and the US (military) ‘stood down’ – calling their fighters back. And then the US politic allowed these war crimes to go uninvestigated and unpunished. This perversion of justice not only helped propagate the Zionist myth that it was an ‘accident’, but continues to provide Israel a 007 licence.

And what are the chances Netanyahu and/or his speechwriters don’t know this? Nada. Impossible.

28 injured as clashes rage across Jerusalem overnight

At least 28 Palestinians were injured as clashes with Israeli forces continued into the late hours of the night on Friday across Jerusalem, as anger over a series of killings by Israeli police boiled over into the streets of the city's Palestinian neighborhoods.

Clashes broke out in the occupied East Jerusalem neighborhoods of Silwan, al-Issawiya, al-Tur, and Wadi al-Joz, as hundreds marched and fought pitched battles with security forces in anger over the killing of Mutaz Hijazi, 32, early Thursday, as well as the killing of Abd al-Rahman al-Shaludi, 21, the week before.

Both men were suspected by authorities of involvement in violent incidents targeting Israelis. But Palestinians have been outraged by their killings, highlighting that instead of being arrested both were shot dead by police on sight.

Cover-Up Alleged in Probe of USS Liberty

A former Navy attorney who helped lead the military investigation of the 1967 Israeli attack on the USS Liberty that killed 34 American servicemen says former President Lyndon Johnson and his defense secretary, Robert McNamara, ordered that the inquiry conclude the incident was an accident.

In a signed affidavit released at a Capitol Hill news conference, retired Capt. Ward Boston said Johnson and McNamara told those heading the Navy's inquiry to "conclude that the attack was a case of 'mistaken identity' despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary."

It was “one of the classic all-American cover-ups,” said retired Admiral Thomas Moorer, a former Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman who spent a year investigating the attack as part of an independent panel he formed with other former military officials. The panel also included a former US ambassador to Saudi Arabia, James Akins.

Al Jazeera - The Day Israel Attacked America

In 1967, at the height of the Arab-Israeli Six-Day War, the Israeli Air Force launched an unprovoked attack on the USS Liberty, a US Navy spy ship that was monitoring the conflict from the safety of international waters in the Mediterranean.

Israeli jet fighters hit the vessel with rockets, cannon fire and napalm, before three Israeli torpedo boats moved in to launch a second more devastating attack. Though she did not sink, the Liberty was badly damaged. Thirty-four US servicemen and civilian analysts were killed, another 171 were wounded.

Later Israel apologised for what it claimed to be a tragic case of mistaken identity. It said that it had believed the ship to be hostile Egyptian naval vessel. US President Lyndon Johnson was privately furious but publicly the White House chose not to challenge the word of its closest Middle East ally and accepted that the attack had been a catastrophic accident.

Lawsuit Spotlights US Charities That Fund Israel’s Secret Nuclear Weapons Program

A federal lawsuit seeks immediate release of a closely held government report about how American branches of Israeli charitable and educational institutes fund secret nuclear weapons research and development programs.

An unclassified 1987 study conducted for the Department of Defense titled "Current Technology Issues in Israel" discovered Technion University technicians developing nuclear missile re-entry vehicles and working at the Dimona nuclear weapons production facility. Hebrew University computer scientists working at the Soreq nuclear facilities were "developing the kind of codes which will enable them to make hydrogen bombs." Israel’s Weizmann Institute "studied high energy physics and hydrodynamics needed for nuclear bomb design, and worked on lasers to enrich uranium, the most advanced method for making the material dropped on Hiroshima in 1945" say sources attributed to the report cited in the lawsuit.

9/11 Was NATO’s License to Expand Globally

The 9/11 attacks on the United States undoubtedly benefited a number of actors, including the American military-intelligence complex, Israel, and most definitely, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). The Cold War-era, the area of responsibility for which had long been confined to Europe and North America, used the provisions of Article 5 of the NATO Charter – which states that an attack on one member is an attack on all – to extend NATO’s power deep into Eurasia, particularly in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Kyrgyzstan.

After engaging in out-of-area invasions and occupations of Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Libya, and Syria and, again in Iraq, against the «Islamic State,» the «North Atlantic» military bloc has transformed itself from a Cold War defensive alliance into a global offensive axis of nations that acts with or without United Nations authorization.

Sweden officially recognizes Palestinian state, Israel recalls ambassador

Sweden has recognized the occupied state of Palestine officially, according to its foreign ministry. The Scandinavian has become the first West-European EU state to recognize the territories. Israel has recalled its ambassador in Sweden in protest.

The news follows an earlier hint by Prime Minister Stefan Lovfen in his Social Democrat manifesto, during his inaugural address in October, that this would happen. The idea was quickly met with criticism from the United States and Israel.

"Our decision comes at a critical time because over the last year we have seen how the peace talks have stalled, how decisions over new settlements on occupied Palestinian land have complicated a two-state solution and how violence has returned to Gaza," Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom told reporters.

"By making our decision we want to bring a new dynamic to the stalled peace process."

Police in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania are looking for the person who scratched a swastika into the side of a student's car.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Another hate crime hoax to try to regain Israel's status as permanent victim. Ignoring the fact that the majority of these cases always turn out to be hoaxes, who but Israel gives a damn about the swastika any more? It's a symbol of a long gone government run by long dead people from a time before we were born. Were it not for Hollywood's obsession with Nazis, nobody would remember what a swastika is. The irony is that Israel with its "wag the Nazi" politics, is giving Hitler exactly what he wanted, which is to be remembered forever!

U.N. council to meet on latest Israel-Palestine tensions

The U.N. Security Council will hold an emergency meeting this week on recent tensions between Israel and the Palestinians in East Jerusalem due to Israel's plans to build more settlements, council diplomats said on Tuesday.

Palestine must recognize Jewish Israel for peace: Netanyahu

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says no peace agreement will be achieved with the Palestinians unless they recognize Israel as a Jewish state.

"A peace treaty will be possible with the following formula: A demilitarized Palestinian state that will recognize Israel,” Netanyahu said in a speech at the opening of the winter session of the Knesset on Monday.

He also claimed that Israel has the right to declare Jerusalem al-Quds as its capital.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These are all non-starters for Palestine, especially since Israel has no official borders and Palestine cannot know what they are agreeing to. However, Palestine (and many other nations in the Middle East have made it clear they are ready to recognize the state of Israel ... one second after it recognizes the state of Palestine.

A NEW ISRAELI PIN-UP CALENDAR TO DIE FOR ~~ LITERALLY

Just a couple of months after the Gaza war, Israel has found a new way “to show the world the beauty of Israel and its people” — via the power of a pin-up calendar featuring real IDF soldiers.

Or, as the creators of the MTKL Israeli Army Women Calendar like to call them, “the chosen amongst the chosen people.”

These chosen women, brought together by two former (male) soldiers who “scoured the ranks of the powerful Israeli army,” would like you to donate $25 to their Indiegogo campaign so that they can not only ship you this calendar, but also create a whole line of clothing and accessories that will blend “the best of military and street into must-have urban fashion.”

Facts All US Citizens Need to Know About Israel and Palestine

Gaza (along with the West Bank and East Jerusalem) is occupied Palestinian territory under international law, determined by the vast majority of the world, as well as the highest court in the world, the UN’s International Court of Justice. Gaza cannot commit aggression against Israel, since Israel is in constant and continual commission of illegal aggression against Palestine by occupying it (illegally and sadistically blockading it and frequently committing terrorism against its civilians, including by targeting them with chemical weapons provided by US taxpayers – see “Rain of Fire” by Human Rights Watch). As documented by Amnesty Int’l, Human Rights Watch, and many others, Israel intentionally targets and murders civilians, including children, en masse.

Livni's Facebook reply to Naftali Bennett shows true face of Israeli 'moderates'

Livni's response was instructive. Posting on her Facebook account, Livni accused Bennett of opposing a peace agreement even at the potential "cost" of "the international isolation of Israel, economic collapse and ostracizing." She continued:

You know what, Bennett? I too believe in the historical right of the People of Israel over all of The Land of Israel, but unlike you I also believe in the right of young people and the future generations to live in a Jewish and democratic state, [a] secure [state], with recognized borders and [a state] being a part of the free world, a state which [they] can take pride in, and in Zionism which had established it.

Livni then added: "My interest is not to establish a state for the Palestinians, but to give our young ones this state and this future in The Land of Israel."

Israel increases pressure on nonviolent struggle's flagship village

If you take a look at the Wikipedia page on Bil’in, you’ll see that the last updates about the village’s struggle against the separation wall refer to 2012. B’Tselem’s page on Bil’in was last updated almost two years ago. One could easily be led to believe that the struggle is over. But Bil’in continues to demonstrate.

Perhaps updating Wikipedia and B’Tselem’s website isn’t necessary. The situation in Bil’in remains as it was. Veteran protesters even experience flashbacks to 2008, when the demonstrations took place near the old route of the wall. This is the same route that stole nearly half of the village’s agricultural land, and which the High Court later ordered be dismantled and moved west. This was before the new route was built and introduced in 2011 — the same one that steals only one third of the village’s land.

The pro-Israel Canadian government is modifying the country’s criminal code to ban any criticism of the Zionist regime for atrocities against Palestinians, an analyst says.

In a column for Press TV website, Brandon Martinez has analyzed the proposed cyber-bullying law (Bill C-13) by the administration of Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

“The Zionist ruling clique of Canada, through their front-man Stephen Harper, is seeking to beef up the already-existing Orwellian ‘hate propaganda’ law, which has been primarily used to curtail criticism of Zionists and Israel,” wrote Martinez.

French "hate speech" lawsuit leading to worldwide online censorship

A little over a year after a French court forced Twitter to remove some anti-Semitic content, experts say the ruling has had a ripple effect, leading other Internet companies to act more aggressively against hate speech in an effort to avoid lawsuits.

The 2013 ruling by the Paris Court of Appeals settled a lawsuit brought the year before by the Union of Jewish Students of France over the hashtag #UnBonJuif, which means “a good Jew” and which was used to index thousands of anti-Semitic comments that violated France’s law against hate speech.

Since then, YouTube has permanently banned videos posted by Dieudonne, a French comedian with 10 convictions for inciting racial hatred against Jews. And in February, Facebook removed the page of French Holocaust denier Alain Soral for “repeatedly posting things that don’t comply with the Facebook terms,” according to the company. Soral’s page had drawn many complaints in previous years but was only taken down this year.

Israel's internment regime

Every so often some smug liberal will ask the annoying question, Where is the Palestinian Gandhi? Why do the Palestinians not try non-violent resistance to Israeli occupation? And so on, in monotonous fashion.

Those same smug liberals do not bother to inform themselves about the basic realities of Israel's West Bank imprisonment regime.

Palestinian activists, human rights defenders, journalists and academics are frequently picked up off the streets, out of their homes in the middle of the night, in front of their families – Israel's thug soldiers take them off to jail and intern them without trial, often in conditions of torture and isolation.

Military courts then rubber-stamp the actions of Israel's military and spy agencies.

The conflict between the two men does have a political layer that goes back years, and this was undoubtedly another example of the tainted relationship between them. More importantly, however, it focused public attention on one of the most painful social issues facing Israel, an issue of the kind that has never really challenged or bothered Netanyahu in the past.

Is It Haskalah Or Culture Of Deceit?

The new play by Bernard-Henri Levy, "Hotel Europe," that opened in Paris in September, was scheduled to run until January but will close in November due to a lack of people willing to play audience. BHL induced Sarkozy, Hollande and Valls to promote his play but apparently that didn’t help its reception.

A Swiss comedian, Matthieu Béguelin, commented on Hotel Europe’s aborted run by saying: "La pièce de BHL fait un four." In theatrical vocabulary, the expression means that BHL’s play was a flop. As you probably know, the French word "four" means "oven" and the media were quick to react with commentary that BHL is Jewish and ‘oven’ can evoke the Nazi crematoriums. The comedian replied amongst other things that he was amused that nobody who talked about the walloping of BHL had dared to use the same common expression.

L.A. Hotel to Host Anti-Israel Confab

A prominent Los Angeles hotel that has come under fire for hosting a conference organized by what critics call an anti-Israel hate group is standing by its controversial decision to permit the organization on its premises.

The L.A. Westin Bonaventure will host in November a conference organized by the American Studies Association (ASA), a controversial nationwide academic group that is known as one of the largest champions of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS), which seeks to isolate Israel and its citizens.

The Westin Bonaventure, as well as its parent group, Interstate Hotels & Resorts, has faced intense criticism from the pro-Israel community and Jewish groups for agreeing to host the ASA.

Emmanuel Eisenberg explains his right to disregard international law and destroy private property

The Israeli Antiquity Authority (IAA) continues to expropriate Palestinian land in Hebron, on the Tel Rumeida hillside. On Sunday 18 May 2014, the IAA workforce, under the instruction of project coordinator Emmanuel Eisenberg, continued to cause structural damaged to the Abu Haikel land, deploying questionable and illegal archeological practices, while at the same time utilizing the Al Jobeh family’s land without the family’s consent.

The excavations are illegal under Israeli law, according to the Oslo Agreement, which Israel signed in the mid-90s— a process jointly agreed upon by Israel and Palestine as a vehicle to peace and stability. Article 2 of the Israeli-Palestinian Interim Agreement describes in detail how Israeli and Palestinians would jointly administer archeological projects in Palestinian territory. The IAA has not abided by this agreement in Tel Rumeida.

The letter, addressed to the general manager of the Westin Bonaventure Hotel & Suites, argues that by passing a resolution in support of the boycott of Israeli academic institutions, the American Studies Association (ASA) will practice “unlawful discrimination” over who is permitted to attend the meeting, scheduled to take place 4-9 November.

Nuclear Deal with Iran 95% Complete

I'm guardedly optimistic about the negotiations. They are probably about 95 percent done. The 5 percent that remains has quite a bit that might be difficult in it, I will admit that. The three principal parts of it that are going to be difficult are the number of centrifuges that Iran will be allowed to keep and operate. Second, what exactly does lifting sanctions mean? Of course, this is the Iranian perspective. And then, lastly, how long will this last? Will it last five years, ten years, 15, or 20?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"The only thing that remains to finish the deal is that Iran must admit they are making nuclear weapons, that they hate Israel, that they did 9-11, shot Kennedy and Lincoln, and personally nailed Jesus to the cross and framed the Jews for it! -- Nodding Yahoo

Truth and Fiction in Elie Wiesel’s “Night”

Though Wiesel offers himself as a paragon of moral virtue, the truth is somewhat seamier. As detailed in this myth-shattering piece by Alexander Cockburn from the February 2006 print edition of CounterPunch, Wiesel assiduously campaigned for the Nobel Prize and has for decades tried to pass off his short book “Night” as a true account–a “testimony” in his words– of his experiences at Auschwitz, even though key scenes in the book have been exposed as fiction.

Christian Evangelicals' mass aliyah push touches Jewish nerve

It was the early Jewish nationalist Nathan Birnbaum who coined the term “Zionism” in 1890 to describe the movement to establish a secular Jewish state in Palestine. The idea’s essence was defined in the very name of the journal he published to advance the cause: “Self-Emancipation!”

But now, the largest evangelical Christian group supporting Israel is set to independently take on a mission long seen as central to this self-conception: promoting, funding and implementing mass aliyah, or immigration, of large numbers of Jews to Israel from their native countries.

Los Angeles activists block unloading of Israeli cargo ship for two days

The Block the Boat coalition of Los Angeles claimed another victory this weekend after an Israeli cargo ship, the Zim Savannah, delayed docking at the port of Long Beach for at least 34 hours.

Cookie Partansky, an organizer with the LA Block the Boat coalition, told The Electronic Intifada that approximately 150 activists gathered at the Los Angeles port at 6am on Saturday, 18 October. The morning’s action followed weeks of communication with the longshoremen’s union and educating workers about Israel’s brutal occupation of Palestine, as well as the group’s reasons for targeting Zim, an Israeli shipping line.

Israeli general: All of our military might failed to subdue Gaza

An Israeli military general admitted that the army failed to achieve its military goals during the recent war on Gaza.

Yaakov Amidror, the former national security advisor, said: "Despite the limited military capabilities of Palestinian organisations, Israel failed to achieve significant gains during their ground offensive in the Gaza Strip although it used all of its military power and pulled all of its efforts. With all of this, they failed to break through the Palestinians' defence lines which succeeded in neutralising many of the air force and armed forces' efforts."

What Is Wrong With Gareth Porter - An Interview

The Buzzfeed article is a very sad piece. It conveys an image of a weak human being desperate to save his reputation. In order to do so he tries every trick he knows. Sadly, he achieves the opposite. In his attempt to smear Mark Glenn, the man behind The Ugly Truth Radio Network, Porter quotes Glenn out of context. He fails to comply with even the minimum journalistic standard of fairness and provide a URL reference for his quotation. One would expect this from Dershowitz, but not from a ‘progressive dissident’.

The crucial question not answered by his article, is who is Porter trying to appease? Why does he defame Mark Glenn who didn’t even attend the conference? Is it possible that veteran progressive journalist Porter is breaching every journalist ethic just to convey the image that he is committed to Jewish primary interests?

Israel is losing its friends

When Netanyahu warns about Iran’s nuclear threat, even those who worry about Tehran’s intentions, respond with a weary shrug

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel has been crying Iran's nuclear wolf since the 1980s, and it has never happened. Add to that the fact that Iran has not launched a war of aggression against another country in 200 years, and Israel's accusations have never been credible, especially as Israel's own nuclear perfidy becomes known. Netanyahu has made a caricature of himself with his cartoon bomb at the UN, and three gratuitous attacks on Gaza have forever destroyed Israel's PR image as perpetual victim.

Weaponized Ebola?

The US and UK helped its fascist friends in South Africa develop an ethnic-specific biowarfare program

The goal: To develop ethnic-specific bio-weapons to "limit" the black population.

According to one of the psychopaths who worked on this:

"That was great. That was the most fun I had in my life."

"Another country that had a population problem asked us to work on this." (I'm pretty sure that was one of South Africa's keenest allies Israel that he's referring to.)

From the book by bio-weapons expert Jeanne Guillemin: "The project‘s growth years were from 1982 to 1987, when it developed a range of biological agents (such as those for anthrax, cholera, and the Marburg and Ebola viruses and for botulinum toxin)..."

IN ISRAEL, THE THEME IS ‘ACCEPTANCE OF THE OTHER’ … UNLESS THEY ARE SEPHARDIC JEWS

But lo and behold, the most prestigious academic body in Israel, the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities, organizes a conference about the other which is characterized mainly by an exclusion of the other.

It’s not just about the ethnic origin issue. It’s possible that a very small minority of the participants are of Sephardic decent. The problem is also about opinion and outlook and a school of thought.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The hostility of the Ashkanzi to the Sephardic may lie partly in the fact that the Sephardic are actually descended from the Biblical Hewbrews, whereas the Ashkanzi are the descendants of coverted central Asian Khazars.

UNCANNY PARALLELS IN CHARACTER

I don’t know whether anyone else has noticed the fact that Benjamin Netanyahu and Adolph Hitler share uncomfortably similar personality and character traits. Certainly there are, and have been, other politicians who also share the same traits, but it is of particular concern today that a man of this nature dominates events in the Middle East. In the case of Hitler we can read about his personality and character in any of a number of scholarly biographies and histories of World War II. In the case of Netanyahu, we can see them displayed on the world stage despite an immense amount effort by public relations flaks and apologists to airbrush them. We have also, something we do not always have for contemporaries, the first-hand testimony of several world figures about key aspects of his behavior to which we wouldn’t otherwise be exposed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Certainly Netanyahu's "Fist of iron" comment regarding opposition to building Jewish settlements on Palestinian land reveals his true nature.

Macy’s stops stocking SodaStream made by Israeli Settlements

The department store chain Macy’s has stopped carrying Israeli settlement products of SodaStream, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Macy’s has been targeted the past year by pro-Palestinian activists, who have called on it and other major chains to stop carrying the SodaStream home carbonation system and soda flavourings due to the company’s role in the military occupation of Palestine.

Israeli soldiers worse than ISIL terrorists: Israeli MP

An Israeli lawmaker says there is no difference between Israeli soldiers and militants of the ISIL and that both are “armies of murderers with no boundaries and red lines.”

“They (ISIL) kill one person at a time with a knife and the IDF at the press of a button [kills] dozens of Palestinians,” Haneen Zoabi said in a Sunday interview with Channel 2 Online.

The Arab member of the Israeli Knesset added that an Israeli pilot is no less a terrorist than a person who takes a knife and commits a beheading.

Richie Allen Speaks with Gilad Atzmon about the last Gaza Conflict

"The Palestinians are devastated, but the Israelis are the big losers following the bombardment of Gaza".

We spoke about 'solidarity', controlled opposition, political paralysis and activists' impotence. I also spoke about the structures and the building of cognitive elite. I attempted to explain the difference between Palestinian subservient elite (Ramallah) and combatant one (Gaza).

East Jerusalem construction to continue: Netanyahu

He said [settlement] construction would go on in East Jerusalem for both Jews and Arabs. He added that nobody could prevent his government from building homes for Jews in the ancient city.

"We are ready to fight with an iron fist anyone who seeks to divide our city," Netanyahu said assertively.

Perry’s Priorities: Photo-Op at Auschwitz More Important Than Combating Ebola Outbreak in Texas

Whereas a visit to Jerusalem’s Wailing Wall may evoke some religious sympathies, a visit to the infamous Auschwitz I camp, with the often depicted words “ARBEIT MACHT FREI” at the gate, will likely trigger more powerful emotions. So that was the plan. The photos of Perry posing before the gate would be available to be released at the most opportune time during campaign season. However, at least one image did leak out into the public domain prematurely. (Note that the proper way to visit the Auschwitz I camp, which the holocaust industry propagandists have declared a “holy” site, appears to entail keeping both hands in your pockets, unless you have to hold an umbrella with the other one.)
