Jerusalem at boiling point of polarisation and violence – EU report

A hard-hitting EU report on Jerusalem warns that the city has reached a dangerous boiling point of “polarisation and violence” not seen since the end of the second intifada in 2005.

France Takes Toughest Line at Iran Nuclear Talks

France is again adopting the toughest line against Iran in negotiations aimed at curbing Tehran’s nuclear program, potentially placing Paris at odds with the Obama administration.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hollande, like the US Congress, works for Israel instead of his own people.

The European Union has produced an explosive new report recommending sanctions against Israel over its construction policies and security measures in Jerusalem

The European Union has produced an explosive new report recommending sanctions against Israel over its construction policies and security measures in Jerusalem, the British daily Guardian reported on its website on Friday.

The leaked report, which comes just days after incumbent Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu handily won re-election, describes Israel's capital as a city gripped by the worst "polarization and violence" since the Second Intifada of a decade ago.

The document, which is an amalgamation of recommendations prepared by European diplomats stationed in the region, accuses the Israeli government of exacerbating tensions in the city by accelerating construction in the contest eastern part of the capital.

Council accused of anti-Semitism after voting to boycott goods from West Bank

Leicester City Council will no longer use anything produced in the settlements for its public services “until Israel withdraws from Palestinian occupied territories”.

The motion was proposed by Labour councillor Mohammed Dawood who claimed the people of Leicester wanted to show solidarity with the Palestinians. The news was greeted with dismay and horror by the Jewish community.

A Very Kosher Dishonesty (must read!!!)

It’s now well known that the Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM) was pressured by Zionist lobbyists North West Friends of Israel (NWFOI) to cancel a concert by internationally acclaimed jazz saxophonist Gilad Atzmon. What is less well known is that the co-chair and spokesperson for NWFOI is one Anthony Dennison (Mr Dennison’s name and role in the organisation may be confirmed here). These machinations by the NWFOI and the leading role played by Mr Dennison were duly reported by the Jewish Chronicle

So far, so… well, if not exactly good, certainly understandable.

Less understandable is the fact (not mentioned by the JC) of Mr Dennison’s documented and well-known dishonesty. Because of his dishonesty, Anthony Dennison, once a lawyer closely associated with the no win, no fee scam was found by the High Court to be unworthy to practice law and was duly struck off

Israel-Obama Rift Gives GOP an Opening for Jewish Votes

Gen. Petraeus Agrees With Netanyahu On Iran, Obama Isolated

Don't just rely on Benjamin Netanyahu's passionate advice to Congress on his way to re-election that Iran is our archenemy. Now we have the counsel of retired Gen. David Petraeus, who gave a remarkable interview this week to the Washington Post. Petraeus agrees with Netanyahu: Iran, not the Islamic State, is the real enemy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obama is still the Commander in Chief of the military. So for Israel and Israel's whores in Congress to get their war with Iran, they have to get rid of Obama and put a more compliant Biden into the White House (which will give the Democrats a powerful advantage in 2016 now that Hillary is flaming out). So, I predict that we will either see Obama impeached for his many impeachable offenses, or we will see a repeat of the JFK assassination take place with both US and Israeli intelligence assets involved behind the facade of a "crazed lone nut racist Islamic Russian climate-denier" patsy.

The Secret Service better sober up quick.

UN officials accused of bowing to Israeli pressure over children's rights list

Senior UN officials in Jerusalem have been accused of caving in to Israeli pressure to abandon moves to include the state’s armed forces on a UN list of serious violators of children’s rights.

UN officials backed away from recommending that the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) be included on the list following telephone calls from senior Israeli officials. The Israelis allegedly warned of serious consequences if a meeting of UN agencies and NGOs based in Jerusalem to ratify the recommendation went ahead. Within hours, the meeting was cancelled.

It's the Anniversary of the Invasion of Iraq. Where's the Accountability?

There were many more encounters that revealed the Iraqis believed the US wanted to bomb because of Israel. We held a vigil in the streets with a banner that read, "We have found the smoking gun," and in our hands we held gas nozzles. Another vigil at the oil refinery had us giving our blood to the Red Crescent in an act to declare No Blood for Oil.

Netanyahu sank into the moral gutter – and there will be consequences

On election day itself, he sank lower still. In a Facebook video, he posed in front of a map of the Middle East, as if in a war room, and used the idiom of military conflict to warn that “Arab voters are advancing in large numbers towards voting places” and that this was “a call-up order” for Likud supporters to head to the polling stations.

It’s worth pausing to digest the full meaning of that move. The enemy against whom Netanyahu was seeking to rally his people was not Islamic State or massed foreign armies, or even the Palestinians of the West Bank or Gaza. He was speaking of the 20% of the Israeli electorate that is Palestinian: Arabs who were born in, live in and are citizens of Israel. A prime minister was describing the democratic participation of one-fifth of the country he governs in the language of a military assault to be beaten back.

Reports: Boehner To Meet With Netanyahu In Israel

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) will travel to Israel at the end of the month to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who just won re-election, according to reports from CNN and Israeli newspaper Haaretz.

Israeli officials told Haaretz that Boehner will lead a delegation of Republican congressmen on a trip to Israel on March 31. Boehner reportedly confirmed the trip when Netanyahu spoke before Congress two weeks ago, before the Prime Minister won re-election.

GOP Rep. Louie Gohmert can’t wait any longer: ‘It’s time to bomb Iran’

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) pushed some wild conspiracy theories Wednesday to argue that the U.S. must attack Iran to destroy its nuclear program.

“We need to make clear to Iran: You can play these silly games with our president that buys into them and our secretary of state, but the American people aren’t buying it and you’re going to pay a price,” Gohmert said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay, Louie, if you really feel that way about it... Here's your rifle. Here's your parachute. We ran out of the desert camo but here's a bright da-glo orange jumpsuit from the CIA's torture centers. Watch your head climbing into that transport aircraft, and we will call Tehran and tell them you are on your way to kick their butts all by yourself.

But We The People remember the lies about stolen incubators that tricked us into the first invasion of Iraq.

We The People remember the lies about Saddam's nuclear weapons that tricked us into the second invasion of Iraq.

We The People remember how only a year ago you tried to trick us into war with Syria with more lies about poison gas.

We The People remember how there weren't really torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin or a Spanish mine in Havana Harbor, but how there really WERE weapons on board the Lusitania.

In short, We The People remember all the lies, frauds, and deceptions used to trick us into wars of conquest, to send our young people out to die in wars created out of thin air by and for the money-junkies. I think it is time that we have a new rule in America; that those who want war are the first to the front lines. You are all splendidly brave with the lives of other peoples' children. Let's see the true measure of your courage and commitment to war.

You first!

And just to keep you honest, please recall that Iran has not initiated a war of conquest against another nation in over 200 years; a sharp contrast to the US and Israel, which these days cannot seem to go two months without invading, drone-striking, or overthrowing someone else's nation!

UPDATE: I attempted to post the above in the comments section over at Raw Story, but apparently I am now banned there as well, so please feel free to copy and use this comment yourself!

Israel chooses the path to apartheid

It was once possible to argue that Israel's policies were not the same as apartheid because their stated goal, however imperfectly pursued, was to end the occupation. After Netanyahu's reelection, this is no longer the case.

Mar 20 08:15

Time to give Palestinians their country back

More than the threat of war on Iran, Netanyahu’s re-election is a call for war on Palestinians everywhere. It is a call for war on human rights and international law. It is a mandate for the Israeli government to murder Palestinians. It gives Netanyahu license to continue Israel's seven-decade policy of racism and apartheid towards the people from whom they stole the land. It is also a call for people of conscience to impose boycotts and sanctions to divest and to isolation Israel. No more business as usual - it is time for outrage, for action, the type of action that brought down apartheid in South Africa. It is a call to finally allow Palestinians to have their country back.

A Neocon Admits the Plan to Bomb Iran

Not exactly known for truthfulness, U.S. neocons have been trying to reassure the American people that sinking a negotiated deal with Iran to limit its nuclear program would be a painless proposition, but at least one prominent neocon, Joshua Muravchik, acknowledges that the alternative will be war – and he likes the idea.

On Sunday, the neocon Washington Post allowed Muravchik to use its opinion section to advocate for an aggressive war against Iran – essentially a perpetual U.S. bombing campaign against the country – despite the fact that aggressive war is a violation of international law, condemned by the post-World War II Nuremberg Tribunal as “the supreme international crime.”

US re-evaluation of Israel policy could pave way to UN condemnation

The US is “evaluating” its policy towards Israel in the wake of Benjamin Netanyahu’s re-election and campaign statements. This could involve passing a UN resolution condemning Israeli settlements.

President Obama called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday to congratulate him on winning the March 17 election, and used the opportunity to reaffirm Washington’s commitment to a two-state solution that would result in a “secure Israel alongside a sovereign and viable Palestine.”

The president also brought up Netanyahu’s campaign comment about Israeli Arabs and said the US was reassessing its options following the prime minister’s rejection of Palestinian statehood, a White House official told Reuters

Secrets revealed of how Israel manipulates U.S. public opinion

One of the Israeli government’s secrets to manipulating the American media has been revealed for the first time by new research.

Israel habitually launches its most unpopular and, sometimes, deadly attacks against Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza to coincide with big news events here in the U.S., so that they don’t get too much public attention, according to the study.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Like Nov 4th, 2008, when the US was watching Obama win his first term, Israel broke the cease fire with HAMAS and attacked Gaza, then claimed Gaza had violated the cease fire when people started paying attention again!

To evangelicals, Zionism an increasingly tough sell

While the lobby giant AIPAC wields power in Washington, evangelical Christians have long been the grassroots base of Israel advocacy in the US. But that support is eroding.

According to a National Association of Evangelicals poll, forty percent of US evangelical leaders have changed their thinking about Israel over the past fifteen years.

The most common change? “A greater awareness of the struggles faced by the Palestinian people,” the survey concludes.

“Beautiful Israel” group misleads on “cooperation” with Greenpeace, WWF

A series of propaganda videos have been posted on the Internet as part of Israel’s contributions to Expo 2015, the world’s fair, which will kick off in Milan, Italy, on 1 May. Portraying Israel as committed to peace and protection of the environment, one such video boasts that Israel invented the solar water heater.

This attempt to draw attention to Israel’s record on renewable energy appears to be in keeping with the fair’s message of “sustainability.” Yet it also smacks of hypocrisy. Israel has issued orders to halt the installation of solar panels intended to benefit Palestinians in the occupied West Bank.

Jon Stewart equates maniac Netanyahu with American whites

Here is a neat little Zionist trick. First take PM Netanyahu, with the blood of thousands of Gazans killed or maimed last summer still fresh on his hands and trying to manipulate America into an insane war with Iran. Then pick one of his most insignificant transgressions, namely warning his supporters that Arab voter turnout likely to be unusually high — the implication being that Arab electoral participation is undesirable. Finally, as the punch line to a joke, say ginning up “racist fears of minority turnout for short-term political gain” is “our thing?” What does he mean by “our thing?” Well, who is not a minority in this country? Whites! And Jon Stewart, as a Jew, has a magic yarmulke that he can put on and take off, depending on whether he wants claim oppressed minority status or magnanimously engage in self-hate as a whitey.

Poll: Netanyahu should be investigated for nuclear weapons tech smuggling before US visit

A March 2012 statement by the co-authors of Confidential claims that “Hollywood mega-producer and former secret agent Arnon Milchan has been asked directly by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Shimon Peres to avoid any public discussion of the book Confidential, asserting that the matter is too sensitive at this time.” Although the book’s authors point to the escalating tensions over Iran’s nuclear program, Netanyahu’s own hands-on involvement in nuclear weapons–related covert action against America is presumably a far more compelling reason for the gag order.*

Rep. Ros-Lehtinen: Congress Will Stand With Netanyahu on Iran

Americans should tell President Barack Obama to "move on" and stop holding a grudge against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen told Fox News.

Americans should tell Ileana Ros-Lehtinen that if she is so concerned about Netanyahu that she move to Israel and leave America to have leaders more focused on America's problems than pleasing a foreign government!

Operation Rent Seeking How the war on terrorism became a business model.

The syndrome the Bush administration created in Iraq was what former Pentagon critic Chuck Spinney has called a “self-licking ice cream cone”: the measures to fight the war on terrorism guaranteed more terrorists, which in turn guaranteed the agencies more money to fight the war on terrorism. The same process was at work with respect to torture and drone strikes. It is a great business model for contractors and bureaucratic empire builders, but far less favorable as a national survival strategy.

Netanyahu Unmasks Israel

For years, U.S. politicians have rejected allegations of Israeli racism and excused mistreatment of the Palestinians as a temporary necessity that would be fixed by a two-state solution. But Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu has destroyed those arguments in his panic to keep his job, reports Robert Parry.

Mar 19 17:09

What Does the Netanyahu Victory 'Mean' for America?

Was it a clear endorsement of Netanyahu's policies? Do we even know what those policies will turn out to be?

Didn’t other nations pretty much say to the US after Bush’s re-election, “Okay, but if you want to start or continue Bush’s wars, you are now on your own.”

Is it not at least conceivable that other nations should now respond to Israel and say, “Okay, but if you truly are not going to agree to a two-state solution, and if your settlements are going to continue to be planned and located to make a two-state solution impossible, then you are now on your own"?

I mean, can we not make continued support contingent on a policy that has at least some hope of leading to (1) peace in the Mideast, and (2) extrication of the US from a situation in which we are attacked and our citizens are killed because we are perceived to support Israel unconditionally?

Israel’s Victory of Fear

Binyamin Netanyahu is probably the most deficient prime minister in Israel’s history. His blunders and vices have been laid bare in great abundance during his nine years in power.

Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu Tells NBC He Wants a 'Peaceful Two-State Solution'

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel, in his first American television interview since winning re-election, appeared to back away Thursday from his declaration that he would not allow the establishment of a Palestinian state.

"I don't want a one-state solution," he told NBC News in an interview. "I want a sustainable, peaceful two-state solution."

But he cautioned that "circumstances have to change" for that to happen. He said that the Palestinian leader refuses to recognize Israel and has made a pact with Hamas calling for Israel's destruction.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: Bibi needs to mend fences with the White House but will still work against any statehood for Palestine and blame the Palestinians for it.

Israel’s Netanyahu Reopens Door to Palestinian State, but White House Is Unimpressed

In an interview on MSNBC, Mr. Netanyahu also said he had not been trying to suppress the votes of Arab citizens with an Election Day video warning that they were heading to polling stations in large numbers.

Israel bulldozers conduct incursion of Rafah in Gaza

Israeli bulldozers and military vehicles have reportedly intruded into the Palestinian border town of Rafah in the blockaded Gaza Strip, locals say.

Witnesses said four bulldozers and vehicles belonging to the Israeli military conducted an incursion into the southern town in Gaza, where Egyptian forces demolished over 1,000 homes earlier this week to create a so-called buffer zone.

Egyptian officials said Tuesday that the country’s military had razed to the ground at least 1,020 homes in Rafah, near the border with southern Gaza Strip, in the second phase of an operation to create a buffer zone with the Israeli-besieged territory.

HUNGARY REMEMBERS THE GAZA MASSACRE IN EUROVISION ENTRY

Israel is protesting Hungary’s Eurovision entry, which includes condemnation against Operation Protective Edge and mentions the number of Palestinian children killed during the 2014 Israeli military campaign.

Israeli Ambassador Ilan Mor turned to the Hungarian broadcasting authority, expressed his country’s reservations over the planned song and asked that the problematic segment be removed.

The Eurovision Song Contest will be held in May in Vienna, Austria. Hungary’s song this year, “Wars for Nothing,” will be performed by a group of three singers led by Hungarian singer-songwriter Boggie. The song has an anti-war message, focusing on the victims of violence and wars in the world. One of the captions in the song’s video refers to Operation Protective Edge, stating: “2014 – Gaza – two-thirds of the victims were civilians, including more than 500 children.”

THE VICTORS OF HOPE IN THE ISRAELI ELECTION

What was almost a tradition in Israeli elections came to an end this year. Traditionally, the Palestinian electorate in Israel called for a boycott of the voting process. This time was different with leaders of both Hamas and Fatah urging them to vote for the ‘Joint Arab List’. Their call was endorsed by local Palestinian leaders in Israel itself.

At least two prominent Jews in Israel also endorsed the Party, Avraham Burg and Gideon Levy, both urging Jews to vote for it. Uri Avnery was tempted to join the endorsers, but if you read THIS you will see how his zionist sentiments stopped him.

On Election Day itself, Netanyahu posted the following on his FaceBook page …

The Saker interviews Gilad Atzmon

It has been already 6 years since I interviewed Gilad for the first time and when a friend recently suggested that it was time for a new conversation, I immediately agreed, as did Gilad who, in spite of his over-booked and hectic lifestyle took the time to reply to my questions. Gilad is, in my opinion, not only the most original and talented jazz musician currently composing and playing (make sure to get his latest CD “The Whistle Blower“), he is also an extremely profound philosopher who has the amazing courage not only to ask the key questions, but to also answer them. His book “The Wandering Who” is, I strongly believe, a must read for anybody wanting to see through the “fog” of modern “Jewish anti-Zionism”. As somebody who has gotten his share of hate mail, I can only begin to imagine the kind of hate-filled poison which Gilad has had to put up with for his courage and even though he will not speak about it, I will say that it takes exceptional courage and moral strength to do what Gilad did and is still doing.

On the eve of an important event scheduled to take place this evening featuring representatives from two vital human rights organizations discussing issues critical to achieving a just and sustainable solution to the crisis in Palestine and Israel, the Executive Director of a tony uptown synagogue where the event was contracted to take place, has attempted to cancel the event.

In what can only be perceived as an effort to shut down discussion and silence discourse of the “Ongoing Nakba” within New York’s Jewish community, one day before the program with Palestinian human rights organization, Badil (whose timely recently released Corporate Complicity in Violations of International Law in Palestine [pdf] is a must read), and Israeli human rights organization Zochrot, the Lincoln Square Synagogue (LSS) on Manhattan’s Upper West Side canceled the event with no explanation.

US: Netanyahu Win to Have No Impact on Nuclear Talks

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's victory in the Israeli election will not hamper US efforts to reach a nuclear deal with Iran, the State Department said Wednesday.

"We've been long familiar with the views of the prime minister on Iran. We don't think that his win has impacted the Iran negotiations, or will," said State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki.

The speaker was no other than the notorious fanatic Christian Zionist Col. Richard Kemp, ex-British Army officer, who lead a British battalion in Afghanistan in 2003. Kemp claimed that the students were protesting against his support for Israeli army during 50-day war with Hamas last year. “I was in Israel at the time and said that Israeli soldiers did their best not to kill civilians deliberately. People told me I was wrong but no one told me how the Israeli forces had acted differently,” Kemp said.

Israel: 5 things Benjamin Netanyahu may regret saying about America, Arab voters, Palestine, Europe and the Israeli left

Benjamin Netanyahu has been on the war path over the past three months, thundering against his political opponents both at home and away over what was a bitter and and times vitriolic election campaign in Israel.

He began by upsetting Europe over the Charlie Hebdo fallout, then took on US president Barack Obama over Iran and then - over the past 48 hours - attacking senior Israeli politicians, judges, Arab voters and Palestinians in a series of online tirades that some credit with tipping the balance of a close and acrimonious election.

Below, IBTimes UK looks at Netanyahu's top five controversial comments of recent weeks - and how they could make governing for another four years difficult.

U.S. rebukes Israel's victorious Netanyahu on Mideast policy

The White House on Wednesday scolded Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu following his re-election victory for abandoning his commitment to negotiate for a Palestinian state and for what it called "divisive" campaign rhetoric toward Israel’s minority Arab voters.

U.S. could back UN resolution on Palestine, White House official says

The Obama administration might be open to lending its support to the UN Security Council's resolution that would define the principle for a two-state solution as based on Israel's 1967 borders, a senior White House official told The New York Times. The move would come in response to Netanyahu's withdrawal of his support for the establishing of a Palestinian state as expressed in his Bar Ilan speech in 2009.

The U.S. has previously refused to endorse the resolution, which allows for mutually agreed swaps of territory between Israel and the future Palestinian state. Israel vehemently opposes it.

"The premise of our position internationally has been to support direct negotiations between the Israelis and the Palestinians,” the official told the Times. “We are now in a reality where the Israeli government no longer supports direct negotiations. Therefore we clearly have to factor that into our decisions going forward."

Republicans crow over Benjamin Netanyahu’s victory

Israeli Prime minister and Republicans will continue drumbeat of criticism of nuclear talks with Iran

Congressional Republicans are confident Benjamin Netanyahu’s return as Israeli prime minister will help them ratchet up pressure on President Barack Obama to abandon his current round of nuclear weapons talks with Iran.

Netanyahu has been an outspoken critic of Obama’s plans to deal with Tehran, including in a controversial address to Congress earlier this month. For Republicans hoping to influence the deal, or scuttle it entirely, renewed opposition from the leader of the U.S.’s closest ally in the Middle East is exactly the kind of ideological support they’re looking for.

Mar 19 01:06

As Netanyahu no longer talks peace, Israel is set for paralysis

On Monday – the day before his election victory - he abandoned his conciliatory words and went back to being against a Palestinian state. “Anyone who is going to establish a Palestinian state, anyone who is going to evacuate territories today, is simply giving a base for attacks to the radical Islam against Israel,” he said. “This is the true reality that was created here in the last few years.”

So Mr Netanyahu has jumped from being against the two-state solution, to being in favour, to being against it once again. His current position forces him once again to bang his head against stubborn demographic reality: if there is one state west of the Jordan, it must eventually be an Arab state.
***
Moreover, ordinary Israelis can never forget that whenever they have relinquished territory in the past – by leaving south Lebanon in 2000, for example, or evacuating settlers from the Gaza Strip in 2005 – nothing has been gained save for barrages of rockets launched by Hizbollah and Hamas.

Due to the fact that the appointment of Malley coincided with the crisis in relations between the U.S. and Israel, caused by the recent speech made by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu before the U.S. Congress behind Obama's back and without his approval, analysts have begun to talk about "changes in the U.S. role in the Middle East"

Israel election: US concern over 'divisive' rhetoric

The White House has condemned what it called "divisive rhetoric" in the Israeli election, won by Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud party.

The US, EU and UN have also urged him to continue with the two-state solution to the Palestinian issue.

During campaigning, Mr Netanyahu said he would not allow the creation of a Palestinian state if re-elected.

He aims to build a new coalition government within two to three weeks, his party says.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest said: "It has been the policy of the United States for more than 20 years that a two-state solution is the goal of resolving the conflict between the Israelis and Palestinians."

The US would "re-evaluate our approach" in the wake of Mr Netanyahu's comments ruling out a Palestinian state, he said.

White House pushes Palestinian statehood in face of Netanyahu win

The White House says that a two-state solution is still the best way to resolve the dispute in the Middle East, Israeli Prime Minister’s Benjamin Netanyahu promise this week to prevent further establishment of a Palestinian state notwithstanding.

“A two-state solution is the best way to address this conflict,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters aboard Air Force One on Wednesday, according to USA Today.

Netanyahu said earlier this week on Monday that he would fend off efforts to create a Palestinian state if he’s re-elected as prime minister of Israel. On Wednesday, the leader declared himself victorious following a narrow win against challenger Isaac Herzog of the center-left Zionist Union.

U.S. Blasts Netanyahu for 'Divisive Rhetoric'

The White House on Wednesday scolded Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu following his re-election victory for abandoning his commitment to negotiate for a Palestinian state and for what it called "divisive" campaign rhetoric toward Israel’s minority Arab voters.

Even as U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration congratulated Netanyahu for his party’s decisive win in Tuesday’s ballot, the White House signaled its deep disagreements – and thorny relationship - with Netanyahu will persist on issues ranging from Middle East peacemaking to Iran nuclear diplomacy.

In Gaza the farmers irrigate the land with their blood

Tilling the land in Gaza is one of the most dangerous jobs in the world. The Zionist Occupation Forces fire on the peasants and their families while they sow or harvest their own land near the infamous Zionist fence which surrounds Gaza. They also burn their fields and routinely ravage their crops with bulldozers, leaving hundreds of families ruined and preventing the Gaza Strip from developing it’s already devastated economy or achieving a minimum of food sovereignty.

Flashback 2014 - Have We Been Deceived About What Happened on 9/11? - Christopher Bollyn

A lecture by Christopher Bollyn that took place the 25th of May 2014 in Gothenburg Sweden.

Christopher Bollyn is an American journalist who has investigated the events of 9-11. He helped Professor Steven E. Jones in the spring and summer of 2006, when Jones found solid evidence of Thermite in the dust of the Twin Towers. The discovery and discussion of Thermite in the demolition of the World Trade Center led to serious trouble for both Jones and Bollyn. In the end Bollyn had to go into exile.

Christopher Bollyn has written several book on the subject, for example "Solving 9-11: The Deception that Changed the World".

The lecture was arranged by the Cui Bono Association.

Police investigate 51 cases of alleged voting fraud

Several voting irregularities were reported across Israel on Tuesay - ranging from impersonation, stolen ballots and threats against voting secretaries, 23 suspects were being pursued by police.

Mar 18 11:09

The first exit polls presaged a rough tie between the Likud and Zionist Union.

Exit pollsters who presented a woefully inaccurate map of Tuesday’s election outcome that night, are searching for clues as to why their results differed so vastly from the actual votes being counted.

The difference between the final public polls published the Friday before elections and the actual results are expected to have large gaps.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The reason to have exit polls is to verify the accuracy of the official vote. When they don;t line up, it means the election was stolen.

Imagine my shock.

Critics banned, Islamophobes welcomed at “We Believe in Israel” UK conference

Organizers of a major pro-Israel conference taking place in London this weekend have been vetting the political views of those registered to attend.

I know since, as a researcher examining the pro-Israel lobby in the UK, I signed up to attend, making no attempt to conceal my identity.

But those behind the 22 March “We Believe in Israel” conference, staged by a body of the same name which declares itself the “grassroots” arm of the UK’s major pro-Israel lobby group BICOM (the Britain Israel Communications and Research Centre), wrote to me to say my “application” to attend had not been accepted.

Conversely, organizations with links to the transnational Islamophobia industry appear to have been welcomed with open arms.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel would benefit from a new (un)Holy Crusade, standing off to one side while the dumb Christians and dumb Muslims kill each other off, leaving Israel with its nuclear arsenal to rule the middle eastern oil and through that oil the rest of the world!

Netanyahu's victory is clear break with US-led peace process

In his sports shop in the Palestinian village of Hizme, Mohammad al-Kiswani, aged 52, reflected bleakly on the re-election of Binyamin Netanyahu.

“When Netanyahu won,” he said, “he dried the last drop of water that could quench our thirst for a state. This time he will be more radical. He promised the Israeli public he will not negotiate a two-state solution or negotiate over Jerusalem. He has taken off his mask and it has shown an ugly face.”

Binyamin Netanyahu bids to form rightwing Israeli coalition after decisive win

According to reports in the Hebrew media, Netanyahu has already approached Aryeh Deri of the ultra-orthodox Shas party, Avigdor Lieberman, who leads Yisrael Beiteinu, and former Likud minister Moshe Kahlon, who leads a new centrist party Kulanu, which campaigned on social and economic issues.

The calls sketched out the likely shape of Netanyahu’s new government, should he succeed in putting together a coalition in the next few weeks.

That appears to be a government more rightwing and religious than its previous incarnation, reflecting Netanyahu’s own sharp tack rightwards in the last days of the election campaign, as he declared his opposition to a two-state peace solution and vowed to push ahead with settlement building.

World War II myths fuel Western crimes

Freshman US Senator Tom Cotton already has two claims to fame. First he wrote a letter to Iran in an effort to sabotage his own President’s diplomatic efforts and start a war. And then he set an all-time record by invoking Hitler in less than one minute during his first Senate speech.

Sen. Cotton thus stands condemned under Godwin’s Law, which states that whoever mentions Hitler first automatically loses the debate. “Playing the Hitler card” is widely reviled. Yet people like Cotton cannot resist the temptation.

Why has the demonization of Hitler—and of anybody one wants to demonize through comparisons to Hitler—become such a massively overused, utterly shopworn cliché?

Netanyahu Wins by Stephen Lendman

snip: Believing otherwise is foolhardy. Israel's 20% Arab population is powerless, persecuted, and denied rights afforded solely to Jews. Election results changed nothing.

Israel is like America. Democracy is pure fantasy. Not a dime's worth of difference separates major parties on issues mattering most.

Voter choices are largely bad or worse. For Israeli Arab citizens and most Jews, Netanyahu or Herzog makes no difference.

Election results changed nothing. Government headed by either leader assures ugly business as usual.

Both and likely coalition partners support:
apartheid worse than South Africa's;
militarized occupation harshness;
settlement construction on stolen Palestinian land;
war, not peace;
Arabs denied virtually all rights afforded Jews; and
continuation of decades if institutionalized racism.

Netanyahu "showed his true colors" during election

The results are in: Israeli Prime Minister and international war criminal Benjamin Netanyahu, a key architect of the false flag attack on 9/11 which initiated the Orwellian, never-ending Jewish concocted "Global War on Terror," and his fanatical right-wing Likud Party scored a "decisive victory" in the latest Israeli elections, thus ensuring he will remain Prime Minister of Israel.

The Jewish Telegraph Agency recently published an article outlining some key conclusions that can be drawn from the election, including the fact that Netanyahu "showed his true colors" during the election.

‘Jew-hating campaign’ seen with Israel divestment movement on campuses

The three swastikas found over the weekend inside a Jewish fraternity house at Vanderbilt University weren’t the first — the Nazi symbols were painted recently on Alpha Epsilon Pi houses at Emory University and the University of California, Davis.

It could be a drunken prank, or it could be that those few smears of graffiti represented something larger. A survey of 1,157 Jewish college students at 55 campuses released in February by Trinity College and the Louis D. Brandeis Center found that a whopping 54 percent said they had experienced or witnessed anti-Semitism in the past year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Those swastikas could also be another hate crime hoax by Israel's supporters to build public sympathy. There have been many such hoaxes exposed time and again, such as the professor at Claremont College in California or the jewish student caught drawing swastikas on her own door at George Washington University.

If you think about it, nobody BUT Israel still thinks the swastika is important.

When you were a child, and played cops and robbers or cowboys and indians, you wanted to be the good guy, either the cops or cowboys. The younger children had to be browbeaten into playing the bad guys whether robbers or indians. Well, the Nazis are generally viewed as the bad guys and nobody really wants to be them. The posers pretending to be modern nazis inevitably turn out to be a front for some intelligence or propaganda operation.

For the rest of us, WW2 and the Nazis are history from before we were all born, including myself, and I am 62. Were it not for Israel's constant exploitation of the Nazis for political gain, most of us would recall Hitler as poorly as we recall the Kaiser!

But contrary to the "Jew hater" or "Antisemitism" spin, the opposition to Israel's government is the result of their actions, not their religion or ethnicity. It is their BEHAVIOR that is a problem and defending Israel's aggressions by screaming "Jew hater" makes as much sense as defending the Nazis by screaming "German hater!"

With the 51 day Israeli attack on Gaza in the summer of 2014 that killed over 2,200, wounded 11,000, destroyed 20,000 homes and displaced 500,000, the closing to humanitarian organizations of the border with Gaza by the Egyptian government, continuing Israeli attacks on fishermen and others, and the lack of international aid through UNWRA for the rebuilding of Gaza, the international Gaza Freedom Flotilla Coalition has decided to again challenge Israel’s naval blockade of Gaza in an effort to gain publicity for the critical necessity of ending the Israeli blockade of Gaza and the isolation of the people of Gaza.

Netanyahu Ahead in Israel Election Over His Chief Rival

After a bruising campaign focused on his failings, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel emerged from Tuesday’s elections in the best position to form a new government, though he offended many voters and alienated allies in the process.

While the results were still incomplete early Wednesday, Israeli news sites reported that Mr. Netanyahu’s Likud party was likely to wind up with 30 of the 120 seats in Parliament, and that his chief rival, the center-left Zionist Union alliance, would take 24 seats.

The official Central Elections Committee site showed that with just over 68 percent of the votes counted, Likud had 23.3 percent of the vote to the Zionist Union’s 18.8 percent.

Advantage Netanyahu in close race

Israel's election has yielded a fractured parliament and no clear winner, setting up a horse-trading phase that seems likely to leave Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in place and in ever deeper confrontation with the world.

Isaac Herzog, Netanyahu’s chief opponent and head of the center-left Zionist Union, said “everything is still open” and that he already had spoken to party leaders about forming a government.

Norman Finkelstein ExposesMEMRI As Mossad Op

The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) provides daily English translations of film and print media stories originating in Arabic, Iranian and Turkish media.

It also furnishes original analysis of cultural, political and religious trends in the Middle East.

It sends its daily postings to every news outlet in the United States and Europe, in addition to politicians and cultural leaders.

And it's free, which makes it a Godsend for journalists, editors and policy analysts.

But according to its critics, it is also a dangerous, highly sophisticated propaganda operation, disseminating hate and disinformation on an unprecedented worldwide basis.

"They use the same sort of propaganda techniques as the Nazis," Professor Norman G. Finkelstein, a well-known scholar on Israel/Palestine, told InFocus. "They take things out of context in order to do personal and political harm to people they don't like."

Bye bye, Bibi: Why today will be different for Israel’s left-leaning coalition

For much of his career, Netanyahu has had something of a Midas touch. In the elections of 1996, the first after Yitzhak Rabin’s murder, Labor’s Shimon Peres went to sleep knowing he had won a new term in office and awoke to discover that Netanyahu had pulled the rug out from under his feet. In the elections of 2009, Tzipi Livni, then head of Ariel Sharon’s Kadima party, actually did win — only to have the rug pulled out from under her feet by a coalition-making deal Netanyahu concocted with Shas, the Sephardic religious party that got four ministries out of the deal. In 2013 Netanyahu was elected despite losing a significant number of the Likud’s Knesset seats, thanks to a deal with then (and now) foreign minister Avigdor Leiberman, that reassured the jittery voters of the ultra-right.

The hypocrisy is stunning, both because of chronic US interference in the internal politics of nations around the world, and because Netanyahu tried, with the connivance of the Congress, to subvert the administration's Iran policy!

Worse, the growing schism between the pro-Israel members of Congress (which is most of them) and the White House is now on full display to the rest of the world, along with Israel's obvious subversion of that Congress. Neither of these are good for America's foreign policy as other countries see a government clearly divided against itself and all because of meddling by Israel!

Benjamin Netanyahu’s rival holds lead in Israel election

He didn’t get the invitation to address Congress on Iran, but he may just beat the man who did.

Opposition leader Isaac Herzog’s center-left coalition holds a small but clear lead as Israelis head to the polls Tuesday. If he wins and is able to form a government, Mr. Herzog is expected to present a very different face to the world than the far better known Benjamin Netanyahu has over the past six years.

Unlike Mr. Netanyahu, who made last-minute pre-election headlines Monday by declaring that he no longer supports a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Mr. Herzog has long supported the idea of Palestinian statehood and has pledged during his campaign to push anew for peace talks if he is elected.

The residents of these rural communities have lived in this part of the West Bank for decades, many of them since before the Israeli military occupation began in 1967 and long before the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948. Many families have documents proving ownership of the land.

In the 1980s, the Israeli army declared most of the area as a closed military zone for training — a designation imposed on approximately 18 percent of the West Bank. Approximately 5,000 Palestinians, mostly herders, live in those areas. The land of Masafer Yatta was subsequently leased to the World Zionist Organization for the development of Israel’s settlements, which are illegal under international law.

Bin Laden and Bibi, Together At Last

Remember the brouhaha a few months ago when it was revealed that fighters of the Nusra Front, the al Qaeda affiliate in Syria, had seized territory adjacent to Israel? The "let’s intervene in Syria" crowd was up in arms: this supposedly proved the absolute necessity of going full-bore into the region, with US bombing raids and unrestrained support for "moderate" jihadists out to overthrow Syrian strongman Bashar al-Assad. After all, we can’t leave our loyal ally, Israel, at the mercy of Osama bin Laden’s heirs, can we?

As it turns out, however, Nusra has left the Israelis alone – and, indeed, it looks like there is a de facto alliance between bin Laden’s boys and Bibi’s bombardiers.

Huckabee sends letter calling John Kerry 'offensive and hypocritical' on Israel

When Kerry claimed the Senate letter was “unprecedented” and “wrong,” Huckabee turned the tables on him. “The fact is, your willingness to trust Iran and undermine Israel is what is unprecedented and wrong,” Huckabee stated.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay, Mr. Huckabee, if you really feel that way about it... Here's your rifle. Here's your parachute. We ran out of the desert camo but here's a bright da-glo orange jumpsuit from the CIA's torture centers. Watch your head climbing into that transport aircraft, and we will call Tehran and tell them you are on your way to kick their butts all by yourself.

But We The People remember the lies about stolen incubators that tricked us into the first invasion of Iraq.

We The People remember the lies about Saddam's nuclear weapons that tricked us into the second invasion of Iraq.

We The People remember how only a year ago you tried to trick us into war with Syria with more lies about poison gas.

We The People remember how there weren't really torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin or a Spanish mine in Havana Harbor, but how there really WERE weapons on board the Lusitania.

In short, We The People remember all the lies, frauds, and deceptions used to trick us into wars of conquest, to send our young people out to die in wars created out of thin air by and for the money-junkies. I think it is time that we have a new rule in America; that those who want war are the first to the front lines. You are all splendidly brave with the lives of other peoples' children. Let's see the true measure of your courage and commitment to war.

You first!

And just to keep you honest, please recall that Iran has not initiated a war of conquest against another nation in over 200 years; a sharp contrast to the US and Israel, which these days cannot seem to go two months without invading, drone-striking, or overthrowing someone else's nation!

Paul Krugman exposes how Netanyahu used Iran to conceal Israel’s economic disaster

The real reason behind Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s recent anti-Iran speech to Congress had nothing to do with foreign policy, Paul Krugman opines in Monday’s column. Insulting the president is not the way to go about that. No, Netanyahu has a serious problem at home and polls suggest that he may well get the boot in Tuesday’s election. That problem might sound familiar—Israel has become almost as unequal as America, and there is widespread economic discontent in the country that once was built on the socialist ideals of the kibbutz syztem.

Netanyahu's Last-Minute Reversal on the Two-State Solution

The speech was deemed remarkable because it contained Netanyahu's first-ever call for the establishment of a Palestinian state, a statement he had resisted throughout his long and winding political career.

Nearly six years and three Gaza wars later, and with his political legacy on the ropes, Netanyahu issued a major retraction on Monday evening: “I think that anyone who is going to establish a Palestinian state today and evacuate lands, is giving attack grounds to the radical Islam against the state of Israel,” he said in a radio interview.

FLASHBACK - Selective Memri

The reason for Memri's air of secrecy becomes clearer when we look at the people behind it. The co-founder and president of Memri, and the registered owner of its website, is an Israeli called Yigal Carmon.

Mr - or rather, Colonel - Carmon spent 22 years in Israeli military intelligence and later served as counter-terrorism adviser to two Israeli prime ministers, Yitzhak Shamir and Yitzhak Rabin.

Retrieving another now-deleted page from the archives of Memri's website also throws up a list of its staff. Of the six people named, three - including Col Carmon - are described as having worked for Israeli intelligence.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

MEMRI provides translations of Arabic media to US media, but the translations are always skewed to make Arabs look bad, such as the mistranslation of Ahmadinejad's "Zionism will vanish from the pages of history" into "We will wipe Israel off of the map." At the moment, MEMRI seems to have joined Rita Katz' SITE Intelligence Group in producing highly dubious proofs of ISIS' crimes against Christians, trying to stoke the new (un)Holy Crusades of Christians against the Muslims.

Netanyahu defiant in face of potential demise

The early election has only multiplied Netanyahu’s social challenge.

Whereas the older centrist party appeals to the upper middle class, the new one appeals to the lower middle class. In fact, the 54-year-old Kahlon, who in his previous position deregulated the cell-phone market and thus slashed prices, is likely to emerge as the next finance minister. Netanyahu, detecting the unassuming Kahlon’s popularity, made this promise during a mass rally in Tel Aviv on Sunday. Labor will likely make a similar offer should it form the next government.

In such a case, Israel’s already unusual economy will likely offer an interesting combination of ambitious deregulation with expanded social spending.

The Misrepresentation of Israeli Aggression as Self-Defense

The media and the public will uncritically support the position of American and Israeli power. Thousands of Palestinians will be indiscriminately killed, but not because Israel is defending itself. Palestinians will be killed because the U.S. government refuses to protect them from a belligerent and aggressive regime, and refuses even to recognize their right to protect themselves.

Israel To Build A New Barrier

By Sydney Barakat

Israel to build a new barrier in ?only ?border­-free zone in the region

Israel continues to build ­ versus break ­ barriers. Furthermore, the Israeli government’s most recent ambitions, which seek to build yet another wall, show how little Israel is concerned with desegregating itself from other countries in the area.

According to RT.com and PressTV, the Israeli government’s latest plan to build a brand new fence along the Jordan border in order to protect an Airport that will be constructed in the area.

The suggestion has already been approved by Israeli officials and members of the government. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had voiced his pre­acceptance of the notion to build a fence along the Jordan border back in 2012.

ed note–the source of ‘anti-Semitism’ was never, is not now and never will be some ‘unsolved mystery’. Jews have been hated throughout history because of their behavior which is a product of the way they think. Their thinking is rooted in self-worship (God’s chosen people) mixed with criminal inclinations as inculcated into their ‘value system’ via the Torah and its various heroes and heroines who all engaged in criminal, illicit behavior. The only ‘madness’ that needs to be tackled is Judaism, Jewish thinking and the criminal, anti-Gentile behavior that it has always produced throughout history. Once this has been accomplished, those who have been prisoner to this form of mental illness will be freed of their bondage and thus, ‘anti-Semitism’ will be eradicated.

After Lieberman, imagining Israel’s new face to the world

ed note–as we have predicted here on this website may times, much of the present brouhaha involving Netanyahu is about giving this ugly woman known as the Jewish state a new makeover so as to make her more presentable to a world that has grown tired of her inherently ugly appearance. Netanyahu & co–including Lieberman–are the face of Judaism, Inc. In their brash, brazen and unapologetically-honest behavior, they reveal Judaism (and its political manifestation, Zionism) for what they truly are without all the black magic and makeup, and unless something drastic is done, the Gentile world will eventually and inevitably wake from its slumber and begin the process of expelling this dangerous virus from its body politic, and in the process, thousands of years of work in writing this malware code and loading it onto the hard drive of human thought and activity will be lost, and this is the reason for the removal of Netanyahu and his associates in Likud and Y’Israel Betenyu.

Senate Dems Prepared to Defy Obama, Oppose Iran Deal

Outrage over last week’s letter from Senate Republicans to Iran threatening to dishonor any nuclear deal President Obama reached is beginning to subside, and with it, a new round of comments are coming from Democrats indicating their support for, if not the letter, the sentiment behind it.

Several Democrats are now publicly expressing their support for various resolutions that aim to sabotage the talks, either by imposing new sanctions on Iran in violation of the interim deal, or by seeking a “veto” over the deal that would make it impossible for the US to be a part of the process.

“The letter’s incredibly unfortunate and inappropriate,” insisted Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D – ND), “that doesn't diminish my support for the legislation that we introduced.”

Sen. Bob Corker (R – TN), the author of the “veto” bill, claimed to have 12 Democrats firmly committed to his resolution, and suggested momentum is in favor of getting a veto-proof majority on it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable.

It is very obvious these people have been given their "30 pieces of silver" by both AIPAC and Israel, and are taking the money, and running away from a reasonable deal with Iran.

Did these folks get the memo that Russia has just recently signed a military agreement with Iran?!?

I will guarantee you: an attack against Iran will surely draw Russia into the fray militarily.

And the US military, at this time in its history, doesn't have the money, the manufacturing, or the troop strength to guarantee a positive outcome to a war against Russia; and that is what makes the military option so scarily dangerous.

Jon Stewart labeled 'most disgusting Jew on planet' by Pamela Geller

Comedian Jon Stewart, a perennial critic of both the American political establishment and the current Israeli government, has been named “the most disgusting Jew on the planet” by Jewish far-right activist Pamela Geller, the Huffington Post reported.

Geller, whose many achievements include being barred from entering Britain in 2013, described Stewart as a "vicious traitor" and blamed him for the "absence of the good" in American culture. Geller was writing in the conservative mouthpiece WorldNetDaily.

Stewart, she wrote, "has long been working for the other side under the guise of comedy… [he] defines self-loathing Jew. But that’s not enough. He means to take us down with him.”

Jon Voight: Obama ‘Does Not Love Israel’

The Karate Dog star Jon Voight released a video message Sunday, to whatever the demographic for that might be, warning that Obama is an enemy of Israel, and that those seeking a deal with Iran over its nuclear program were, sigh, like Neville Chamberlain.

“I want to see Israel survive and not be overtaken by the madmen of this world,” Voight said. “President Obama does not love Israel. His whole agenda is to control Israel. And this way he can be friends with all of Israel’s enemies…America has not been the same since his presidency.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Reader comment: US president's job is not love another country, his job is to serve the interests of the United States at it's best. Love stories are left to Hollywood.

Report: Netanyahu sought to cancel Mossad briefing for U.S. senators on Iran talks

Netanyahu attempted to cancel a January briefing for U.S. senators by Mossad in which the intelligence agency warned U.S. lawmakers that a new Iran sanctions bill in Congress could derail the negotiations over the Islamic Republic's nuclear program, Time Magazine reported in Saturday.

According to the report, which was based on unnamed sources "familiar with the events," Netanyahu stripped the Mossad meeting from the itinerary of a delegation of senators led by the head of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee by Tennessee, Republican Bob Corker. After a protesting Corker threatened to cut his trip short and asked Israel's Ambassador to the U.S. Ron Dermer to intervene, Netanyahu allowed the meeting with Mossad to go forward as planned, Time reported.

In late January, Bloomberg reported that such a warning was indeed issued to the senators, against Netanyahu's stance on the matter.

Washington Post BEX - War with Iran is probably our best option

The logical flaw in the indictment of a looming “very bad” nuclear deal with Iran that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu delivered before Congress this month was his claim that we could secure a “good deal” by calling Iran’s bluff and imposing tougher sanctions. The Iranian regime that Netanyahu described so vividly — violent, rapacious, devious and redolent with hatred for Israel and the United States — is bound to continue its quest for nuclear weapons by refusing any “good deal” or by cheating.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay, Mr. Muravchik, if you really feel that way about it... Here's your rifle. Here's your parachute. We ran out of the desert camo but here's a bright da-glo orange jumpsuit from the CIA's torture centers. Watch your head climbing into that transport aircraft, and we will call Tehran and tell them you are on your way to kick their butts all by yourself.

But We The People remember the lies about stolen incubators that tricked us into the first invasion of Iraq.

We The People remember the lies about Saddam's nuclear weapons that tricked us into the second invasion of Iraq.

We The People remember how only a year ago you tried to trick us into war with Syria with more lies about poison gas.

We The People remember how there weren't really torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin or a Spanish mine in Havana Harbor, but how there really WERE weapons on board the Lusitania.

In short, We The People remember all the lies, frauds, and deceptions used to trick us into wars of conquest, to send our young people out to die in wars created out of thin air by and for the money-junkies. I think it is time that we have a new rule in America; that those who want war are the first to the front lines. You are all splendidly brave with the lives of other peoples' children. Let's see the true measure of your courage and commitment to war.

You first!

And just to keep you honest, please recall that Iran has not initiated a war of conquest against another nation in over 200 years; a sharp contrast to the US and Israel, which these days cannot seem to go two months without invading, drone-striking, or overthrowing someone else's nation!

BEX Alert!!! - "Bolton: Obama deal with Iran ‘fundamentally flawed’"

Former US ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton has attacked US President Barack Obama for planning to sign a “flawed” nuclear agreement with Iran.

Speaking at the South Carolina National Security Action Summit in West Columbia, SC, the potential 2016 Republican presidential candidate said the US president is negotiating “an unprecedented act of surrender” with Iran.

“This deal is fundamentally flawed,” he said on Saturday. “There really is no deal I’d trust Iran with.”

Bolton also defended 47 Republican senators, who sent a warning letter to Iran, claiming Obama’s possible nuclear agreement with Iran is a “mere executive agreement” that could be revoked “with the stroke of a pen and future Congresses could modify the terms of the agreement at any time.”

It was still illegal and an unprecedented show of weakness and disunity by the U.S. government, but it did not, Eaton said, rise to the level of treason.

Babies of Yemeni jewish immigrants to Israel were kidnapped and given to Ashkenazi families

In Donolo Hospital they wouldn’t let my grandfather see his son’s body nor his place of burial. They also refused to provide him a death certificate.

The three languages they spoke didn’t help my grandfather and grandmother who were religious and educated. They believed the doctors and sat shiva (a week-long mourning period in Judaism) in mourning. They couldn’t imagine being lied to; who could believe that in Israel of all places, Jews will kidnap the child of other Jews.

Years later, when similar, horrific stories began coming to the fore, they understood. Since then they have not stopped tormenting themselves over how naive they were. They spoke about Rafael and looked for him until their very last day. Every conversation with my grandmother Jenia would always come to Rafi. “We didn’t think ya binti (“my daughter” in Arabic) we didn’t think,” she would say to me, her eyes filling up with tears.

Such a tragedy was not only predictable, it was specifically warned against. . . . Attacking the cultural resources that connect the Iraqi people to 7,000 years of history is part of the process of systematically destroying their national identity.”

On Iran deal, Republicans cut off their nose to spite their face

The letter signaled not only continued Republican obstructionism toward seemingly anything President Obama does, but also that the United States is potentially no longer a cohesive entity in terms of how it conducts itself in global affairs. In fact, what the Republicans have done with their attempt at scuttling the diplomatic efforts aimed at peacefully resolving the Iranian nuclear dispute, is to make a claim that has very rarely been made in US history: that the US government’s executive branch does not conduct the nation’s foreign policy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Under the Constitution, only the White House and the State Department may conduct foreign policy, and those 47 Senators who signed that letter to Iran (and the congressmen who bypassed the White House to invite Netanyahu to speak before Congress) are all in violation of the Logan Act, which carries a three-year prison sentence for the crime of unauthorized negotiations with foreign governments.

Separating anti-Semitism from anti-Zionism

Netanyahu drew thunderous applause that followed the words loudly proclaimed as if he owned them: “Never Again.” I felt sick as he spoke of the deadly rise of anti-Semitism, a hatred of Jews bound together with the destruction of Israel. “Never Again,” a powerful and highly charged statement, was used here to create a lie in the suppression of the crimes of Israeli Zionism, covered up and justified as a means to “defend itself.” What? To defend itself from a repeat of Hitler’s program to rid Europe of all Jews? Is that the vision of a Jewish State only, a place of safety for all Jews to be protected from a hostile world, with walls, and born from the blood of apartheid and ethnic cleansing? Is this not insanity to pursue an agenda with complete disregard to human values except for Jews?

The long history of Israel gaming the ‘Iranian threat’

The only power of which the Zionist entity is afraid of, is the Islamic Republic of Iran, which believes that in accordance with human rights and democracy all the people of Palestine, whatever their religious inclination, have the right to carry out a referendum for one single country from the borders of Lebanon in the north to the Sinai in the south, and from the River Jordan in the east to the Mediterranean Sea in the west. Thus, in a bid to deflect attention from its crimes against humanity, Israel has indulged in the absurd propaganda that Islamic Iran is trying to manufacture a nuclear warhead despite the explicitly fatwa of Islamic authorities, including the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei. But this crying wolf by Zionist premier, Benjamin Netayanho, has been found out by the west and its intelligence agencies to be a sheer lie that was repeated once again last week in Washington when some influential members of the US

Caligula’s Horse By Eric Margolis

snip: Adelson, who has reportedly called for nuking Iran, is also Bibi Netanyahu’s primary political and financial sponsor. So Adelson can say he owns the US Congress and Israel. Some Israelis, who will vote next week in a very tight election, are uneasy that Netanyahu is “owned” by the American gambling mogul Adelson. Is this the Zionist dream of a state built on morality, social fairness, and honesty?

Democrats are now largely owned by Israeli-American billionaire Haim Saban who calls himself somewhere to the right of the late Ariel Sharon. Saban, a media mogul, recently gave $5-10 million to the Clinton Library and is Hillary’s principal backer.

Bibi’s visit to Congress was clearly intended as pre-election political grandstanding. Marketing fear of Islam, Iran, ISIS, Hezbollah, Syria, al-Shebab and Boko Haram are now the stock in trade for embattled politicians in Israel, Canada, Australia and France.

New poll: Netanyahu's Likud down to 20 seats

The two final polls published before Israel's election predict that Zionist Union will have a four-seat margin over the prime minister's Likud.

A Channel 10 poll published on Friday, just three days before next week's Knesset election, has given only 20 seats to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud party - the lowest the party has polled since the leadup to the vote.

n another poll published Friday evening by Channel 2, Likud got 22 seats, while Zionist Union got 26.

This four-seat gap between the two main parties reflects the results of most of the polls conducted over the past week.

Still the right-wing bloc was ahead of the center-left. In Channel 10's poll, the Arab Joint List got 13 seats, while Yesh Atid and Habayit Hayehudi both polled at 12 seats and Kulanu polled at 10. Shas stayed on seven seats, United Torah Judaism polled at six seats, and Yisrael Beiteinu, Yahad and Meretz all got five seats.

US State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki has said that the United Nations Security Council would endorse any final nuclear agreement between Iran and the P5+1 group.

"We would anticipate that, if we're able to reach a joint comprehensive Plan of Action between the P5+1 and Iran, an endorsement vote would be held by the UN Security Council," Psaki told reporters on Friday.

She added that Washington’s unilateral restrictions imposed against Tehran would be in place, even if the UN Security Council decides to ease its sanctions on the country.

Iran and the P5+1 group -- the US, Britain, France, China, Russia, and Germany -- are currently working to complete the outlines of a nuclear deal by the end of March after they reached an interim agreement in November 2013.

The two sides have by the end of June to clinch a final agreement.

Netanyahu Turns Congressional Address into Campaign Ad

Israel’s election commission was very clear about not wanting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to Congress to be political in nature. Just weeks before the vote, they made networks in Israel broadcast the DC speech on a five minute tape delay in case the PM did any illegal campaigning mid-speech.

He got through the speech, but fading in most recent polls, Netanyahu is now trying to politicize his visit to the US, making his new campaign ad center around his visit, and the approval he received from the US Congress.

White House petition on ‘47 GOP traitors’ draws 260,000 signatures

A petition to the White House demanding treason charges against 47 Republican senators who attempted to sabotage US President Barack Obama's efforts to reach a nuclear accord with Iran has garnered more than 260,000 signatures.

The petition, on whitehouse.gov, was filed on Monday and had 263,312 signatures as of early Friday morning, well above the threshold of 100,000, which requires the White House to respond.

In an unprecedented move on Monday, a group of Republican senators ignored protocol and sent a letter to Iran, warning that whatever agreement reached with Obama would be a “mere executive agreement” that could be revoked “with the stroke of a pen and future Congresses could modify the terms of the agreement at any time.”
