Kyrie Eleison - Anti-War Music Video - CLAIRE K. RIVERO

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am reposting Claire's video for two reasons. First, this is a message that needs to get out to the world about how war is cilling innocent children.

Second, the latest revelations from Edward Snowden include confirmation that the NSA "tinkers" with view counts on YouTube videos to keep videos contrary to the war agenda from going viral.

Fuckers!

Why I Object to Israel’s Military Campaign

Even today, when rockets are exploding above the city I love most in the world, even when we rush into our apartment building’s stairwell and march downstairs along with the neighbors to the bicycle room that has been turned into a makeshift bomb shelter. Even now, I oppose this military operation wholeheartedly. The sight of the Israeli air force’s attack helicopters crossing the sky, going south along the Tel Aviv coastline does not fill me with pride or gratitude—it horrifies and depresses me.

Gaza: "Resistance is Strong and Will Continue"

It is clear that most targets of the Israeli attacks are civilian. A few of far too many example: the Kaware family lost seven members when the air force attacked their home in Khan Younis - can you imagine a mother and three of her children being killed together? The family of Hafez Hamad in Beit Hanoun lost six family members in the same attack, and a similar tragedy happened to the Dar el Samman family in the Jabalya refugee camp. It is a real massacre. Any and all homes in all areas of the Gaza Strip are under threat. The skies over Gaza are swarming with air force planes and drones; many people spend most of their time outside the home, waiting to see what will occur.

Tell The President and Congress: Palestinian Lives Matter

The disaster we see unfolding in Gaza would not be possible without the US policy of one-sided military, economic, and diplomatic support for Israel in the extreme. It's up to us to force the US to adopt a new policy: one that can uphold the basic rights and fundamental dignity of Palestinians and Israelis alike. With over 500 people killed in the last ten days, there's no time to waste. Click here to send your message today.

FLASHBACK - France’s Zionist Puppet Masters

France, the nation whose 1789 Revolution gave the world the ideals of Equality, Fraternity and Liberty especially freedom of speech and of the press, jumps to attention (as a docile marionette does) when its Zionist manipulators such as the National Bureau of Vigilance Against Anti-Semitism(BNCVA) the France Israel Chamber of Commerce, International League against Racism and Anti-Semitism (LICRA) Representative Council of French Jewish Institutions (CRIF) and the Simon Wiesenthal Center, get a whiff of criticism of Israel’s war crimes and crimes against humanity.

Israeli Soldier in Hands of Al-Qassam Brigades

The Brigades’ spokesman said that the Zionist enemy was not honest while talking about the number of the killed soldiers during the Israeli ground assault in Gaza.

“The shock of the operation had forced the enemy to announce some of its losses. However, the fact which the enemy has not announced yet, is the abduction of one of its soldiers,” Abu Obeida stated.

“If the enemy leadership could lie about the number of the killed and injured soldiers, it should now tell its people the fate of this Israeli soldier now,” al-Qassam Brigades' spokesman added.

No more US support for Israel

They no longer hold the moral high ground, if ever they did. The massacre in Shejaiya is an obscenity.

Two small bodies lie on the metal table inside the morgue at Gaza’s Shifa hospital. Omama is nine years old. Her right forearm is mangled and charred and the top half of her skull has been smashed in. Beside her lies her seven year-old brother. His name is not certain. It might be Hamza or it might be Khalil. Relatives are having trouble identifying him because his head has been shorn off. Their parents will not mourn them—because they are dead too.

All of them were killed in Shejaiya, one of Gaza’s poorest and most crowded neighborhoods, which came under a brutal and sustained assault by the Israeli military today.

90 dead. The Israeli military was firing artillery shells into a residential neighborhood. It’s unconscionable, indiscriminate murder.

FLASHBACK - The Plan - Apartheid Wall

By now you must have seen the size of this gader hafradeh ("separation fence"). According to Nigel Parry on The Electronic Intifada: "Israel's Separation Barrier, dubbed the "Apartheid Wall" or "Berlin Wall" by Palestinians, has increasingly attracted international media attention, largely due to the hard-to-ignore scale of the project. The most obvious historical parallel to the barrier is the Berlin Wall, which was 96 miles long (155 kilometers). Israel's barrier, still under construction, is expected to reach at least 403 miles in length (650 kilometers). The average height of the Berlin Wall was 11.8 feet (3.6 metres), compared with the maximum* current height of Israel's Wall -- 25 feet (8 metres)." - See more at: http://batr.org/gulag/080603.html#sthash.lECcWHKE.dpuf

The End of Israel

Five days ago, Israel, at least in the eyes of its supporters, held the upper ground. It saw it citizens subject to an endless barrage of rockets, yet it showed relative restraint, killing Palestinian civilians only from afar, which served to convey an imaginary image of strength. But that has changed rapidly since Israel launched its ground operation. Israel is now, once again, involved in colossal war crimes against a civilian population and worse, at least strategically, its elite infantry commandos are being eradicated in a face-to-face street battle in Gaza. In spite of clear Israeli technological superiority and firepower, the Palestinian militants are winning the battle on the ground and they have even managed to move the battle to Israeli territory. In addition, the barrage of rockets on Tel Aviv doesn’t seem to stop.

Israeli Intelligence Minister vows reoccupation of Gaza amid intl. outcry

Israeli Intelligence Minister Yuval Steinitz says the Tel Aviv regime has no plan to stop the ongoing aerial and ground military operations in besieged Gaza Strip.

The senior official says Israeli forces will reoccupy the besieged coastal enclave despite the international outcry to end the bloodshed there.

"There is a significant likelihood that the current ground operation will end with Israel retaking full control over Gaza," media outlets quoted Steinitz as saying.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I hate being right all the time!

Back when Arial Sharon made the deal to "give" Gaza to the Palestinians in exchange for the world turning a blind eye to the illegal settlements in the West Bank, I predicted on this web site and my radio show that as soon as the illegal settlements were facts on the ground, Israel would reneg and find some pretext to take Gaza back.

Gaza: *VERY GRAPHIC* Dozens of civilians killed in fresh attacks on Gaza

Dozens of Palestinian civilians, including several children, were killed in fresh attacks on Gaza in the early hours of Sunday morning as the Israeli Defense Forces continue to expand their ground operation.

At least 25 people were killed as a heavy Israeli bombardment targeted homes in the Al-Shejaia neighbourhood east of Gaza City centre. The Palestinian Ministry of Health reported that “Up to 300 people have been seriously wounded" in the attacks.

The bodies of several children were brought to Al-Shifaa Hospital in Gaza City as the bombardment continued on the Al-Shejaia neighbourhood.

At least 397 Palestinians have been killed since Israel launched its military operation against Gaza 13 days ago.

Indiscriminate bloodshed continues in Gaza as 20 more Palestinians are killed in Israeli shelling as hospitals overflow with women and children

At least 20 people have been killed in a dawn strike in Gaza - including the son, daughter-in-law and two small grandchildren of a senior Hamas leader.

Gaza City's Shijaiyah neighbourhood has come under heavy tank fire as Israel widened its ground offensive against Hamas, causing hundreds of residents to flee.

The dead and wounded have rep[reportedly been left in streets, with ambulances unable to approach.

Early this morning, the wounded from Shijaiyah were rushed to Gaza City's central Shifa Hospital. Frantic parents carried children wounded by shrapnel and the emergency room quickly overflowed, forcing doctors to treat some patients on mattresses in a hallway.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let's review the timetable.

Last month, three Israeli teenagers were kidnapped and killed in an IDF-controlled region of the West Bank, not Gaza. ISIS has taken credit and even the Israeli media admits that the two suspects named by the Israeli government are not part of HAMAS, but of a group known for disobeying HAMAS and trying to cause trouble for them.

But Netanyahu declares HAMAS responsible and launches bombing raids into Gaza using the very latest high-tech weapons provided by the US Government and paid for by the US taxpayers.

To put Israel's actions into perspective, let us recall that over the July 4th weekend, 8 people were killed in Chicago. Using Netanyahu's logic, the Democratic party should be blamed and all of Illinois bombed and invaded!

The Palestinians, who have been attacked without provocation, fight back with their home-made rockets, which so far have not killed anyone or done more damage than knock a few roof tiles loose.

But to Israel's supporters, we should all forget that Israel attacked Gaza without a valid reason, and view Palestine's attempts to defend themselves as the crime, so that Israel can go on pounding the Palestinians with their superior weapons.

I want to point something out. The Israelis sit in their tanks, or the drone operations centers, or fly high above Gaza in their US-supplied warplanes, dropping the latest in US-supplied high tech lethal munitions, and imagine themselves the heroes they read about in the Torah. The Palestinians huddle in their giant open-air prison, without an army, a navy, or an air force, and fight back with home-made rockets made out of plumbing supplies.

Not since Thermopylae has the world seen such courage in the face of overwhelming odds. The Palestinians have balls the US and Israel can only dream of, and the world will remember their courage against the tyrants, and the lies by the corporate media's presstitutes and whorespondents trying to protect Israel's aggression!

BEX ALERT - Iran’s fingerprints all over Hamas-Israel conflict

While media have widely reported on the ongoing war between Israel and Hamas, few have picked up on the significant Iranian connection to the conflict. Indeed, one cannot comprehend the events of recent weeks without an adequate understanding of Iran’s role in Gaza.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So let me see if I have this right. ISIS admits kidnapping and killing those three Israeli teenagers in the west bank but Netanyahu uses that crime to launch an all-out invasion against the people of Gaza, and this writer places the blame for the whole mess on Iran? Are they using serious recreational drugs up at The Star?

“The Israeli Dream”: The Criminal Roadmap Towards “Greater Israel”?

The concept of a “Greater Israel” according to the founding father of Zionism Theodore Herzl, is a Jewish State stretching “’From the Brook of Egypt to the Euphrates.’

Rabbi Fischmann, of the Jewish Agency for Palestine, stated to the UN Special Committee on 9th July 1947 that:

The Promised Land extends from the River of Egypt up to the Euphrates, it includes parts of Syria and Lebanon’”, wrote Michel Chossudovsky. (1)

Thus “from the Nile to the Euphrates.” Herzl’s detailed thesis was written in 1904.

Members of UAE 'aid convoy' revealed as intelligence agents

Forty members of the UAE "aid convoy" which entered the Gaza Strip last week have been revealed as intelligence agents. They were, it is believed, trying to collect information about Hamas and its infrastructure in the besieged territory.

According to one informed source, a local Palestinian recognised one of the agents as a soldier in the UAE armed forces. He contacted the security forces in Gaza who took the agent in for questioning.

Other members of the "aid convoy" then made contact with officials in the United Arab Emirates. In turn, they asked disgraced Fatah official Mohamed Dahlan, who now lives in and is sponsored by the UAE government, to try to secure a safe and swift exit for the agents.

Dozens killed in Palestinian town; Netanyahu calls for demilitarizing Gaza

Hundreds of Palestinians fled in panic into Gaza City on Sunday as Israeli troops focused their firepower on the nearby town of Shaja'ia. The shelling and bombing killed at least 60 people and wounded 300, according to the Gaza Health Ministry.

In previous days, Israel warned residents to flee, through calls, text messages and dropping fliers that said "it is the intention of the IDF to carry out aerial strikes against terror sites and operatives" in the area. The fliers told people to head to Gaza City by Wednesday morning and not to return until further notice. The IDF posted an English translation of the fliers Sunday on Twitter.

Some residents said they had received the warnings but felt that even if they fled, they could face the same dangers in other parts of Gaza.

Israel using flechette shells in Gaza

B'Tselem, an Israeli human rights organisation, describes a flechette shell as "an anti-personnel weapon that is generally fired from a tank. The shell explodes in the air and releases thousands of metal darts 37.5mm in length, which disperse in a conical arch 300 metres long and about 90 metres wide".

The munitions are not prohibited under international humanitarian law, but according to B'Tselem, "other rules of humanitarian law render their use in the Gaza Strip illegal. One of the most fundamental principles is the obligation to distinguish between those who are involved and those who are not involved in the fighting, and to avoid to the extent possible injury to those who are not involved. Deriving from this principle is the prohibition of the use of an imprecise weapon which is likely to result in civilian injuries."

We'll send in more troops, warns Israel: Netanyahu vows to 'significantly widen' ground offensive in Gaza

Israel is prepared to ‘significantly widen’ its ground offensive against Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned yesterday.

He said the military was intent on destroying rocket sites and tunnels used by Hamas to launch strikes against Israel.

Mr Netanyahu spoke as thousands of troops, backed by tanks, artillery fire and fighter jets, poured into Gaza in a bid to seek and destroy the hardline Islamist group that controls the strip.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Gaza death toll reaches 316 as Israel continues attacks

Israel is pressing ahead with its relentless aerial and ground assaults on the besieged Gaza Strip, pushing the death toll to 316 in just 12 days.

The Palestinian Health Ministry says more than 70 of the victims have been children.

Israeli warplanes pounded a number of positions in Gaza during the early hours of Saturday. The fresh airstrikes killed more than 20 people.

More than 2,200 others have been injured since the offensive began on July 8.

Palestinian officials say as many as 65 people lost their lives since Israeli tanks began shelling the impoverished enclave on Thursday, when the Tel Aviv regime launched its ground operation in the besieged Palestinian territory.

Epic fail: Israel's ambassador to US lambasted on Twitter during #AskDermer Q&A

Israel’s Ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer received fierce backlash on Thursday as he defended his country’s Operation Protective Edge offensive on Gaza during a Twitter Q&A.

According to the latest Pew Research polling on the ongoing conflict between Israelis and Palestinians, Americans still heavily lean toward sympathizing with Israel. Yet Dermer urged those who oppose Israel's military actions to ask him any questions so he could clarify his government's position. So they did, but the result was probably not the one that Dermer expected.

And an errant airstrike today next to a journalists’ hotel has led to a fresh wave of criticism against Israel. This afternoon, Israel shelled a Gaza beach, killing four children who were playing soccer there. A second shell hit as survivors were running for help.

The Israel Defense Forces spokesperson said the shells were aimed at a Hamas operative.

But because the shells hit outside a hotel housing journalists covering the conflict, pictures, video and first-person accounts have flooded the Internet, showing smoke, the dead children and a scene of chaos.

“The attack — and its heartrending aftermath –- was witnessed by NBC News,” wrote NBC reporters Ayman Mohyeldin and Paul Ziad Nassar. “Moments earlier, the boys were playing soccer with journalists on the beach.”

Gaza National DemonstrationStop the Killing • Stop the Bombing19 July 2014 • Assemble 12 NoonDowning Street London • March to Israeli Embassy

2100 Israeli air strikes, over 2000 rockets fired, and now the ground invasion has started we can expect a sharp escalation. Over 280 Palestinians have been killed, 77% of them civilians, a quarter ot them children. Over 2000 have been injured and 1800 homes destroyed. Israeli prime minister Netanyahu says, "No international pressure will prevent us from striking."

Gaza resident, Sarah Ali, described on Twitter what this meant as the invasion began: "Israel is literally bombing Gaza from everywhere: air, sea, and land. Terrifying sounds across the Strip. Sound of gunboat shelling is the most horrible. Drones. Apaches & warships. Tanks on the outskirts of east & north Gaza. Families stuck with injuries. This is a war zone."

Gaza deaths soar to 264 on day 11 of Israel assault

The death toll in Gaza hit 264 on Friday as Israel pressed a ground offensive on the 11th day of an assault aimed at stamping out cross-border rocket fire, Palestinian medics said.

And an Israeli soldier was killed during the launch of land operations on Thursday night, raising the death toll on the Israeli side to two, the army said.

Shortly before midday (0900 GMT), three Palestinian teenagers were killed by Israeli tank shelling near the northern town of Beit Hanun, emergency services spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra said, raising Friday’s toll to 23 dead.

Earlier, four other Palestinians were killed in several attacks on Beit Hanun, two of them by Israeli tank fire shortly after midnight.

That number of dead will probably double or triple soon, given the lack of medical supplies, infrastructure, and fresh water in Gaza.

According to an NBC source upset at his treatment, the executives claimed the decision was motivated by "security concerns" as Israel prepares a ground invasion, a claim repeated to me by an NBC executive. But late yesterday, NBC sent another correspondent, Richard Engel, along with an American producer who has never been to Gaza and speaks no Arabic, into Gaza to cover the ongoing Israeli assault (both Mohyeldin and Engel speak Arabic).

One of the greatest sources of inspiration and hope in Gaza is the Gaza Ark Project …. a constant threat to zion as they worked tirelessly to destroy it.

However, it is now clear that Gaza’s Ark was deliberately targeted by Israel (for the second time). Israel is not worried about its security as it claims, what it is worried about and afraid of are peaceful projects like ours that expose its atrocities.

The good news is that no one was killed or injured in this attack as we had decided to pull the guard off the boat two days earlier, for his own safety.

'They went to the beach to play': Deaths of 4 children add to growing toll in Gaza conflict

The boys were cousins -- playing, as they had many times before, at a beach by the sparkling waters of the Mediterranean when the shelling started.

The first shell struck a fisherman's hut on a jetty by the beach where the boys' game had taken them.

As a plume of smoke rose from the blast, several of the boys dashed across the sand, seeking cover.

But they couldn't outrun the second shell, which whizzed in and exploded right by them.

Gaza Live: Israel now plans "boots on the ground", says ground attack chances "very high"

In a clear indication that Israel is seriously considering ground strikes on Gaza, a senior Israeli military official told New York Times that chances of such a possibility was "very high", and that "if you want to efficiently fight terrorism you must be present, boots on the ground".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel's perceived might rests on having the latest and (maybe not so) greatest weapons provided by the US Government and paid for by the US taxpayers. It is easy to sit in those drone-control rooms, or inside a tank, or in an F-16 high in the sky dropping bombs and rockets onto a giant open-air prison camp and imagine oneself the heroes you read about in the Torah.

Going into Gaza will be another story and here again the story of Thermopylae comes into play, for just as the narrow gap held by Leonida took away the advantage of Xerxes' larger force and superior weapons, the tight confines of the world's most densely-packed population center will negate the high-tech whiz-bang of Israel's weapons, leaving the battles to be decided by the soldiers themselves.

Israel's soldiers, too-long dependent on their technological edge, are not an effective fighting force. They have not won a battle against an equal force since 1985. They failed to reach the Litani River in their last invasion of Lebanon and only a few days ago, Israeli commandos, supposedly their best, were clubbed like baby seals on a beach on Gaza and driven back into the sea.

I expect that HAMAS prefers to get the battle out of the skies where Israel has the clear advantage and onto the streets and alleys of Gaza where the fight will be more equal.

One Palestinian child has been killed by Israel every 3 days for the past 13 years

Official statistics from the Ministry of Information in Ramallah have revealed that 1,518 Palestinian children were killed by Israel's occupation forces from the outbreak of the second Intifada in September 2000 up to April 2013. That's the equivalent of one Palestinian child killed by Israel every 3 days for almost 13 years. The ministry added that the number of children injured by the Israelis since the start of the Second Intifada against Israel's occupation has now reached 6,000.

It was there that the second shell hit the beach, those firing apparently adjusting their fire to target the fleeing survivors. As it exploded, journalists standing by the terrace wall shouted: "They are only children."

In the space of 40 seconds, four boys who had been playing hide and seek among fishermen's shacks on the wall were dead. They were aged between seven and 11; two were named Mohammad, one Zakaria and the youngest Ahed. All were members of the extended Bakr family.

Three others who were injured made it to the hotel: Hamad Bakr, aged 13, with shrapnel in his chest; his cousin Motasem, 11, injured in his head and legs, and Mohammad Abu Watfah, 21, who was hit by shrapnel in his stomach.

BRICS Nations Recognize Iran’s Inalienable Right To A Peaceful Nuclear Program

With Iran’s nuclear talks at a decisive crossroads, the BRICS group of emerging powers says Tehran has an inalienable right to a peaceful nuclear program.

The BRICS countries also say there’s no alternative to a negotiated solution to the Iranian nuclear issue. The countries, namely Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, made the statement in a declaration adopted at their summit meeting in the Brazilian city of Fortaleza.

The support came as Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany are negotiating for a final solution to their dispute over Tehran’s nuclear program. The BRICS countries welcomed what they called the positive momentum generated by the talks which they encouraged to continue in order to achieve a comprehensive and long-lasting solution.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What is important to remember is that by signing the Nuclear-Non Proliferation Treaty, the United States also recognized Iran's right to a peaceful nuclear program. By using the threat of military action to coerce Iran to surrender their rights under that treaty, it is the United States that is in violation of international law.

Militants in Gaza fire rocket at Israel as humanitarian cease-fire window expires

Palestinian militants in Gaza fired a rocket at Israel Thursday just as a five-hour U.N. humanitarian cease-fire expired, the Israeli military said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

FOX News is trying to claim that HAMAS fired the rockets just BEFORE the cease fire ended. They have Charles Krauthammer on right now putting the blame for the whole mess on HAMAS.

Let's review the timetable.

Last month, three Israeli teenagers were kidnapped and killed in an IDF-controlled region of the West Bank, not Gaza. ISIS has taken credit and even the Israeli media admits that the two suspects named by the Israeli government are not part of HAMAS, but of a group known for disobeying HAMAS and trying to cause trouble for them.

But Netanyahu declares HAMAS responsible and launches bombing raids into Gaza using the very latest high-tech weapons provided by the US Government and paid for by the US taxpayers. The Palestinians, who have been attacked without provocation, fight back with their home-made rockets, which so far have not killed anyone or done more damage than knock a few roof tiles loose.

But to Israel's supporters, we should all forget that Israel attacked Gaza without a valid reason, and view Palestine's attempts to defend themselves as the crime, so that Israel can go on pounding the Palestinians with their superior weapons.

I want to point something out. The Israelis sit in their tanks, or the drone operations centers, or fly high above Gaza in their US-supplied warplanes, dropping the latest in US-supplied high tech lethal munitions, and imagine themselves the heroes they read about in the Torah. The Palestinians huddle in their giant open-air prison, without an army, a navy, or an air force, and fight back with home-made rockets made out of plumbing supplies.

Not since Thermopylae has the world seen such courage in the face of overwhelming odds. The Palestinians have balls the US and Israel can only dream of, and the world will remember their courage against the tyrants, and the lies by the corporate media's presstitutes and whorespondents trying to protect Israel's aggression!

"Assad is gassing his own people."

Judge in terrorism-related case raised $3 million for Israel, lawyers say

Activist Rasmieh Odeh, 66, of Evergreen Park, is due to stand trial in Detroit in September on charges she hid the 10 years she spent in an Israeli prison from federal authorities when she emigrated to the U.S. in 1995.

Odeh was convicted by the Israelis of two terrorist bombings — one of which killed two people — in Jerusalem in 1969, but also failed to acknowledge that fact when she successfully applied for U.S. citizenship in 2005, the feds said when they arrested her in the Chicago-area in October.

"They have to die and their houses should be demolished so that they cannot bear any more terrorists," Shaked said, adding, "They are all our enemies and their blood should be on our hands. This also applies to the mothers of the dead terrorists.”

The children have been named as Ahed Atef Bakr and Zakaria Ahed Bakr, both aged 10, Mohamed Ramez Bakr, 11, and Ismael Mohamed Bakr, 9, and another boy remains in critical condition. All the victims were relatives.

“The kids were playing football on the beach,” Ahmed Abu Hassera, who witnessed the explosions along with dozens of foreign journalists located nearby, told Reuters. “When the first shell hit the land, they ran away but another shell hit them all. It looked as if the shells were chasing them.”

Israel Failed to Provide Connection between Targets and Military Activity – Report

Israeli human rights organization B’Tselem has issued an information sheet stating that the interpretation presented by the Israeli forces spokesperson — that it is enough for a person to be involved in a military activity to render his home and his neighbors’ homes legitimate military targets without having to prove any connection between his activity and the house in which he and his family live — is unfounded and illegal.

The organization added, according to WAFA Palestinian News & Info Agency’s recent report:

“It is not a coincidence that the number of uninvolved civilians killed or injured by these bombings is growing. The law is meant to protect civilians and, unsurprisingly, violating it has lethal consequences. Euphemisms such as ‘surgical strikes’ or ‘operational infrastructure’ cannot hide the facts: illegal attacks of homes, which constitute punitive home demolition from the air, come at a dreadful cost in human life.”

That is why the Pentagon has been conspicuously absent. At a closed meeting during which the Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel and the Chief of Staff, General Martin Dempsey, came to explain to Congress the parliamentary situation in Iraq, they not only claimed to have lost the Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi file (and thus didn’t know why they arrested him in 2004 and why they released him a few months later) [2], but also admitted to having no intervention plan and leaving the field entirely open to the Islamic Emirate and Kurdistan.

Israel student union sets up “war room” to sell Gaza massacre on Facebook

As the death toll from Israel’s savage bombardment of Gaza continues to climb, Israel has once again turned to students to sell the slaughter online.

“Although they haven’t been called up to the army yet, they’ve decided to enlist in a civilian mission that is no less important – Israeli propaganda [hasbara],” Ynet’s Hebrew edition reported about a massive initiative organized by the Israeli student union branch at the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya (IDC Herzliya), a prestigious private university.

Israel's barbaric bombardment of the most densely populated area on earth must stop now. Barack Obama, David Cameron and UK foreign secretary William Hague's support for "Israel's right to defend itself" is nothing less than collusion with war crimes killing women, children and disabled people.

Join this demonstration. Publicise it as widely as you can among your family, friends, in your workplace, college, local community etc. Israel's crimes against humanity must stop now.

‘Suspects hit Abu Khdeir with a tire iron before burning him’

According to the Shin Bet, the primary suspects, one aged 30, reportedly from the West Bank settlement of Adam – the two others are reportedly minors from Jerusalem — confessed to the brutal crime of kidnapping Abu Khdeir, 16, off the street in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat, early on July 2, beating him and setting him on fire, apparently while he was still alive.

They said that Abu Khdeir’s killing was revenge for the killing of Israeli teenagers Eyal Yifrach, 19, Gil-ad Shaar, 16, and Naftali Fraenkel, 16, last month, the Shin Bet said in a statement.

The suspects’ testimonies also revealed that the alleged crime was premeditated, and that they obtained supplies — including handcuffs and gasoline — in advance.

NSA may be putting Israeli security interests above U.S., new document reveals

Greenwald, who published many of Snowden's revelations over the last year, released his book "No Place to Hide"on Wednesday. Concurrently with the release of the book, Greenwald made public slides that Snowden obtained from the NSA. One of them deals with intelligence relations with Israel.

"Balancing the SIGINT exchange equally between U.S. and Israeli needs has been a constant challenge in the last decade; it arguably tilted heavily in favor of Israeli security concerns. 9/11 came, and went, with NSA's only true Third Party CT relationship being driven almost totally by the needs of the partner," one slide reads.

Another slide states, "The Israelis are extraordinarily good SIGINT partners for us, but … they target us to learn our positions on Middle East problems. A NIE [National Intelligence Estimate] ranked them as the third most aggressive intelligence service against the U.S."

Question All Pro-Israel Tweets, Israel Paying For Them

In a campaign to improve its image abroad, the Israeli government plans to provide scholarships to hundreds of students at its seven universities in exchange for their making pro-Israel Facebook posts and tweets to foreign audiences.

The students making the posts will not reveal online that they are funded by the Israeli government, according to correspondence about the plan revealed in the Haaretz newspaper.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office, which will oversee the programme, confirmed its launch and wrote that its aim was to “strengthen Israeli public diplomacy and make it fit the changes in the means of information consumption”.

THE SELF DESTRUCTION OF ISRAEL

They (the Palestinians) have gradually been stripped of basic civil liberties, robbed of assets including much of their land and often their homes, have suffered from mounting restrictions on their physical movements, been blocked from trading and business, especially the selling of produce, and found themselves increasingly impoverished and finally trapped behind walls and security fences erected around Gaza and the West Bank.

U.S. warns against Israeli ground invasion of Gaza, citing civilian risk

The United States on Monday warned against any Israeli ground invasion of Gaza, saying it would put even more civilians at risk than are currently in the crossfire of attacks on Hamas.

But the White House stopped short of criticizing Israel over the civilian toll so far in Gaza of the offensive, saying the government had a “right” and “responsibility” to defend their citizens against rocket attacks.

“Nobody wants to see a ground invasion because that would put more civilians at risk,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said during his daily press briefing.

The comments apparently reflect growing US concern over a possible escalation of the conflict, which Washington has offered to use its regional leverage to mediate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"....Regional leverage..."?!?!?

YOU HAVE GOT TO BE FLIPPING KIDDING ME.

Iraq, Libya, and Afghanistan are melting into a maelstrom of instability, and the US government has managed to scotch any real possibility of achieving a deal with Iran on its nuclear energy program.

IF those results are considered "leverage" in the region, please tell me: what does epic fail look like?!?

And were I a betting woman, I would bet that Israel will go ahead with a ground invasion just at a time when the world is otherwise distracted; let's say, dealing with a head-on military collision between Russia and Ukraine.

District’s ‘critical thinking’ assignment led at least 50 students to conclude Holocaust never occurred

An eighth-grade English assignment that was meant to develop students’ critical thinking skills has, instead, created some 50 new Holocaust deniers.

In May, Rialto Unified School District leaders came under intense criticism after it was revealed the district’s roughly 2,000 eighth-grade students were given an in-class essay assignment in which they were asked to consider if the Holocaust was “an actual historical event” or if it might have been “a propaganda tool that was used for political and monetary gain.”concentration camp

Students were directed to “research” the issue and take a position on it, supporting their conclusion with “textual evidence” – printouts of information culled from three websites, one of which was a Holocaust denial site.

When news of the assignment broke, Rialto Unified school officials attempted to soothe angry community members by stating that none of the students actually argued that the Holocaust did not occur.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Israeli expert says Iron Dome defence is a hoax

An Israeli scientist and award-winning security expert has called the Iron Dome missile defence system "the biggest hoax the world has seen", Addustour news website has reported.

According to Dr Motty Scheffer, "Today, there is no missile which can intercept other missiles or rocket-propelled grenades, and the Iron Dome is a light audio system which blocks Israeli public opinion and, of course, itself. In fact, all the explosions that we have seen in the atmosphere are self-destruction. The Iron Dome did not launch any rocket that could intercept at least one missile fired from Gaza."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Iron Dome interceptors cost about $50,000 each, not including the cost of the launching and ground tracking system. They are scoring less than a 50% success rate against the Gaza rockets, which cost less than $1000 each. From a purely economic point of view, Iron Dome is not an effective weapon system. But Israel doesn't care because they are not paying for those $50,000 rockets, YOU are!

Congress again snorts 'Israel dust' on Gaza

The Israel Lobby is at it again, prowling the halls of Congress to give out its required doses of “Israel dust” where they must witness it being snorted by their helpers, similar to American prison guards making sure their charges swallow their daily mood control drugs to keep them docile.

We have all been here before, watching our Congress grovel to a foreign lobby like trained circus animals. It actually has become a competition to see who can grovel the most. The snorting recipe for this week is the usual blank check support to Israel for anything it wants to do to the Palestinians simply by claiming it is a self defense measure and invoking America's long time pledges to defend Israel. But this is a blatant fraud. The Zionists are the attackers, as they always are.

American-Arab group boycotts White House iftar, citing Israeli strikes, NSA snooping

The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee is boycotting government iftars, including tonight’s White House event hosted by President Obama, citing what it says is “the government’s condoning of the current slaughter of Palestinians in Palestine and the spying of American Arabs and Muslims domestically.”

More than 160 Palestinians have reportedly died in Israel’s offensive against the militant Islamist group Hamas, which controls Gaza, but the committee said the “deplorable situation, brought on by Israel’s U.S.-sanctioned illegal occupation of Palestine, has received no direct action from President Obama.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said that administration has expressed concerns about casualties " that has been sustained on both sides"...

Setting aside that as of this moment there are no casualties on the Israeli side, the difference is that US government supports Israel's aggression and what's called self-defense, and never gave the same right of self-defense to Palestinians.

Once Again, Israel is Defeated

The situation is clear. Israel is desperate for a break in the violence. In spite of its endless ‘bravado,’ and military might, Israel lacks the military capacity and the courage to encounter Palestinian resistance on the ground. The Israeli elite recognizes that the military can’t resolve the problem, if anything, its extensive use would diminish Israeli manoeuvrability on the international front.

Hamas, on the other hand, has won its biggest military, political and ideological victory to date - it has managed to deliver some elementary messages to all of Israeli society:

You are living on our Palestinian stolen land, our Right to Return is elementary and is not negotiable. You Israelis do not belong here, you never did, and you had better consider your options immediately.

Israel approves, Hamas rejects Egyptian-proposed Gaza truce

Israel sees in the Egyptian-proposed Gaza truce an opportunity to strip the Palestinian enclave of rockets but is prepared to redouble military action there if the cross-border launches persist, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Tuesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Recently-returned-to-US-puppet-rule Egypt suggested that HAMAS surrender all of its weapons, but leave Israel's occupation and starvation blockade intact. This means that the next time Israel pulls a false-flag and launches an unprovoked attack, Palestine would be wholly defensive. I can see why HAMAS rejected this deal.

HAMAS is offering a counter deal in which Israel ends the occupation and opens the borders, but Israel is refusing that offer as their real goal is recapture of the land and the natural gas fields off of the coast of Gaza.

US Congressmen threatened by Israeli lobby: Bruce Gagnon

US lawmakers are threatened by the Israeli lobby not to talk about Israel’s atrocities against Palestinians with losing their jobs in the Congress, an American political analyst says.

“Our Congress has been taken over by people who are afraid of Israel and many people in the United States Congress are threatened by the Israeli lobby and told that if they don’t support Israel, they will be thrown out of office,” Bruce Gagnon from Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space told Press TV on Sunday.

“There have been several cases of congressional representatives who stood up to Israel and then there was a tremendous outpouring of money and lies in their next campaign for election where they’re defeated. So, this has frightened many people inside the Congress who now will never say anything bad about Israel because they’re afraid they lose their jobs,” he added.

BEX ALERT - Column: This time, let Israel finish job

The play-by-play for Israeli-Palestinian eruptions is so well-worn that it’s become formulaic.

Hamas terrorists in Gaza find an excuse to escalate their daily rocket attacks against settlements and towns in Israel, forcing Israel to the breaking point of its patience for random assaults on its citizenry.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let's review the timetable.

Last month, three Israeli teenagers were kidnapped and killed in an IDF-controlled region of the West Bank, not Gaza. ISIS has taken credit and even the Israeli media admits that the two suspects named by the Israeli government are not part of HAMAS, but of a group known for disobeying HAMAS and trying to cause trouble for them.

But Netanyahu declares HAMAS responsible and launches bombing raids into Gaza using the very latest high-tech weapons provided by the US Government and paid for by the US taxpayers. The Palestinians, who have been attacked without provocation, fight back with their home-made rockets, which so far have not killed anyone or done more damage than knock a few roof tiles loose.

But to Israel's supporters, we should all forget that Israel attacked Gaza without a valid reason, and view Palestine's attempts to defend themselves as the crime, so that Israel can go on pounding the Palestinians with their superior weapons.

I want to point something out. The Israelis sit in their tanks, or the drone operations centers, or fly high above Gaza in their US-supplied warplanes, dropping the latest in US-supplied high tech lethal munitions, and imagine themselves the heroes they read about in the Torah. The Palestinians huddle in their giant open-air prison, without an army, a navy, or an air force, and fight back with home-made rockets made out of plumbing supplies.

Not since Thermopylae has the world seen such courage in the face of overwhelming odds. The Palestinians have balls the US and Israel can only dream of, and the world will remember their courage against the tyrants, and the lies by the corporate media's presstitutes and whorespondents trying to protect Israel's aggression!

However, the United Nations has not taken any action to condemn the US move and to use the Security Council in order to put an end to it, he added.

He called for an “immediate end” to the Israeli regime’s airstrikes on the Gaza Strip.

Arab League urges immediate end to Israeli aggression on Gaza

Despite international calls for an end to Israel’s bombardment of Gaza, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that the Tel Aviv regime was hitting Gaza “with growing force” and that there was no end in sight.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This attack is a PR disaster for Israel.

But this attack is only going to backflash on the US! Remember that the Petro-dollar deal put into place to prop up the US dollar following Nixon's ending of gold convertibility was for the Middle East oil nations to sell their oil only for US dollars in exchange for which the US would hold Israel's aggressions in check. This latest attack by Israel and their obvious attempt to spread the conflict into Lebanon, Syria, and Iran will send a message to those oil nations still using the dollar that the United States cannot keep its end of the Petro-dollar deal! That will accelerate the trend of nations dropping the dollar in favor of the Yuan and Ruble!

Sec. of State John Kerry: ‘Significant gaps’ remain in Iranian nuclear talks

US Secretary of State John Kerry said on Sunday major differences remain between Iran and six world powers in talks over the country’s controversial nuclear programme, an opinion shared by Tehran just a week before a July 20 deadline to reach a deal.

The United States, Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China want Iran to reduce its nuclear fuel-making capacity to deny it any means of quickly producing atom bombs. In exchange, international sanctions that have crippled the large OPEC member’s oil-dependent economy would gradually be lifted.

Iran, however, has said it is enriching uranium for peaceful energy purposes only, and wants the sanctions removed swiftly. But a history of hiding sensitive nuclear work from UN inspectors has raised international suspicions, as well as fears of a new Middle East war if diplomacy fails to yield a long-term agreement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Congratulations, Secretary (Epic Fail) Kerry, for having delivered precisely what your Israeli handlers wanted as the outcome; no viable, win/win agreement between the West and Iran over their nuclear program, and the absence of such agreement as a pretext for a potential coming war against it.

But there is one 9,000 lb gorilla, sleeping on the Steinway, for the moment, that it appears you and the rest of the US government have not considered a key component in this scenario, and that is Russia. As reported at Washington's blog, January 2012:

Russia and China Would Consider An Attack On Iran – Or Syria – As An Attack On Their National Security RT notes: The escalating conflict around Iran should be contained by common effort, otherwise the promising Arab Spring will grow into a “scorching Arab Summer,” says Dmitry Rogozin, Russia’s deputy prime minister and former envoy to NATO. ­“Iran is our close neighbor, just south of the Caucasus. Should anything happen to Iran, should Iran get drawn into any political or military hardships, this will be a direct threat to our national security,” stressed Rogozin.

I would like to politely point out to the precious few adults in the bowels of DC that the US military does not have the money, the troop strength, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war with Russia; and that is what makes the military scenario so scarily dangerous here.

IF continuing these negotiations past the 20th of this month could acheive a breakthrough, then, by all means, this should be pursued to the last moment as the most rational path.

Unfortunately, however, those who love the profit and spoils of war hate logical, rational thought with a passion.

Pro-Palestinian march turns violent in Paris, synagogue attacked

Thousands of people marched in Paris on Sunday to protest Israel’s Operation Protective Edge which has left over 160 Palestinians dead, most of them civilians. Some demonstrators clashed with police and attacked a synagogue.

Around 10,000 protesters walked peacefully through central Paris. They carried a large banner saying: "Total Support for the Struggle of the Palestinian People,” according to AP.

The demonstration turned violent at the end of the march on Bastille Square when some protesters started throwing projectiles at police officers, who in turn responded with tear gas, AFP reported.

Blood for gas: Why Bibi is punishing Gaza

Bibi and Shin Bet military intelligence knew from the start the three settlers were dead – and who was responsible. But Bibi simply could not pass up the opportunity to use the incident – during the frenzied three-week search – as a build-up to go after Hamas in both West Bank and Gaza, an operation planned way in advance.

This past Tuesday, the Israeli military spelled it all out: “We have been instructed by the political echelon to hit Hamas hard.” And in perfect Newspeak, the operation was branded a “just war.”
It’s easy to forget that at the time of Israel’s previous invasion of Gaza – Operation Cast Lead – gas fields in Palestine were outright confiscated by Israel. This “operation” was already an energy war, as Nafeez Ahmed analyzed here.

“Justified Vengeance”, The Pretext for Bombing Gaza: Was the Netanyahu Government behind the Killings of the Three Israeli Teenagers?

‘Operation Protective Edge (OPE) directed against Gaza was planned well in advance of the kidnapping and murder of the three Israeli teenagers. Prime Minister Netanyahu has called up 40,000 reservists. In the wake of the shelling and bombing raids, a major ground operation scenario is envisaged.

Moreover, similar to the logic of the Dagan Plan, the head of Israeli intelligence (Mossad) had “predicted” the kidnapping of the three teenagers. Under the title Mossad chief’s chillingly prescient kidnap prophecy, Haaretz confirms that

“Mossad chief Tamir Pardo had “outlined a scenario that was spookily [sic] similar to the kidnapping of three teens missing in the West Bank” (Haaretz, July 13, 2014, emphasis added)

'Israel drops cancer-inducing bombs on Gazans'

A Norwegian doctor in the besieged Gaza Strip has strongly criticized Israel for using cancer-inducing bombs against Palestinian civilians.

Dr. Erik Fosse told Press TV that the majority of patients hospitalized in Gaza are civilians injured in attacks on their homes and about thirty percent of them are children.

Dense Inert Metal Explosive, known as DIME, is an explosive device developed to minimize collateral damage in warfare.

Experts say it has a relatively small but effective blast radius and is believed to have strong biological effects on those who are hit by the bomb’s micro-shrapnel.

Fosse, a department head at a university hospital in Oslo, also says some Palestinian in the besieged enclave have been wounded by a new type of weapon that even doctors with previous experience in war zones do not recognize.

Sderot Cinema- Israeli's enjoying the mass killings of Palestinians

Since its first appearance on social media, the picture has gathered much criticism and rightful disgust.

It isn't difficult to confirm the veracity of the image, posted on Twitter by journalist Allan Sørensen who is reporting from ground zero. Reporters who spoke with some these spectators of war have documented their interactions.

"We are here to see Israel destroy Hamas," one of them tells a Danish journalist. "It's great to be here. You can feel the thunder and see the rockets. It is a quest for excitement," says another.
Many of them cheer with every explosion. Others have carried popcorn and drinks for the "viewing".

BEX ALERT - HAMAS: Imminent Menace to Palestine

“Gaza was being separated from Palestine geographically by Israel’s occupation and morally by HAMAS’ occupation”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I hate to be the one to throw cold water on such a magnificent piece of propaganda, but HAMAS is the legally elected government of Gaza. The Gazans voted them in as the government in 2006. When Israel claims they are striking "HAMAS targets" they mean they are bombing the police stations, the fire departments, the water and sewage systems; infrastructure any government tries to provide for their people.

Israel military says it has shot down drone along southern coastline

Israel's military said Monday it downed a drone along its southern coastline, and fired two deadly airstrikes into the Gaza Strip, in its week-long campaign against Islamic militants.

The drone came from Gaza and was shot down by a Patriot surface-to-air missile near the southern city of Ashdod, the military said. It did not say what the drone was carrying and there was no immediate confirmation from Gaza on the use of unmanned aircraft.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

FOX News is claiming the drone is Iranian, part of Israel's plan to turn the attack on Gaza into a wider regional war including Lebanon, Syria, and Iran.

Gaza's Torment, Israel's Crimes, Our Responsibilities

At 3am Gaza time, July 9, in the midst of Israel’s latest exercise in savagery, I received a phone call from a young Palestinian journalist in Gaza. In the background, I could hear his infant child wailing, amidst the sounds of explosions and jet planes, targeting any civilian who moves, and homes as well. He just saw a friend of his in a car clearly marked “press” blown away. And he heard shrieks next door after an explosion but can’t go outside or he’ll be a likely target. This is a quiet neighborhood, no military targets – except Palestinians who are fair game for Israel’s high tech US-supplied military machine. He said that 70% of the ambulances have been destroyed, and that by then over 70 had been killed, and of the 300 or so wounded, about 2/3 women and children. Few Hamas activists have been hit – or rocket launching sites. Just the usual victims.

Here's What Israeli 'Roof Knocking' Before Bombing A Target Looks Like

THIS AMAZING VIDEO from the Gaza-based Watania news agency shows Israel’s controversial ‘knock on the roof’ air-strike warning in action.

The video demonstrates how a small missile strikes the house across the road from where the footage was captured. This is a warning that the house has been targeted for an air-strike.

About 15 minutes later the house is completely destroyed by two separate bombs from what the agency says was two F16 fighter planes. Most of this fifteen minute period is edited out of the video.

Rubble and debris are thrown into the air but when the dust clears it is evident that most of the house has been completely blown away.

ALL OF GAZA IS NOW ON DEATH ROW

Not unlike the condemned prisoners waiting on death row in the United States, Gazans now know the time of their scheduled executions …

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I want to point something out. The Israelis sit in their tanks, or the drone operations centers, or fly high above Gaza in their US-supplies warplanes, dropping the latest in US-supplied high tech lethal munitions, and imagine themselves the heroes they read about in the Torah. The Palestinians huddle in their giant open-air prison, without an army, a navy, or an air force, and fight back with home-made rockets made out of plumbing supplies.

Not since Thermopylae has the world seen such courage in the face of overwhelming odds. The Palestinians have balls the US and Israel can only dream of, and the world will remember their courage against the tyrants.

Palestine 1896

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel invaded Palestine under the slogan, "A land without a people for a people without a land", implying that there was no indigenous population in Palestine at the time. As this movie from 1896 documents, that claim, like so much else Israel has said over the decades, was simply not true!
