U.S. 'excessive force' comment touches nerve in Israel

Israel bristled on Thursday at what it saw as U.S. suggestions it used excessive force following Palestinian stabbings, and published images to refute Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas's allegation that a teen suspect had been "executed".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Don't you understand? We are the VICTIMS! We are ALWAYS the victims! Yes, we took the Palestinians land, and yes we kill a lot of them, but they are bad, we are good, and you must give us more money and weapons to save us from extinction because Israel only has warplanes, tanks, and nuclear weapons and the Palestinians are throwing #$%^ing ROCKS at us!" -- Nodding Yahoo

Russian UN envoy urges to avoid any steps upsetting status quo of Jerusalem’s Holy Sites

"Resolutely condemning any terrorist manifestations, Russia once again calls on the parties to stop violence, drop provocative actions and take urgent measures to deescalate the situation. Any acts of violence against civilians are unacceptable and inadmissible," Churkin stressed. In his words, Israel as an occupying state bears special responsibility for the developments on the West Bank and should guarantee observance of the international humanitarian law. The Russian diplomat said he hoped a visit of the Middle East Quartet of mediators that had been postponed due to the deterioration of the situation would finally take place "as soon as possible" and reminded the United Nations Secretariat that it was expected to respond to a request of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to place the Palestinian territory under international protection.

Is This the Third Intifada? Violent Unrest Grows as Palestinians Seek End to Military Occupation

The Israeli government has deployed thousands of soldiers and border police and has erected checkpoints to seal off Palestinian neighborhoods amid escalating violence in Israel and the Occupied Territories.

Oct 16 10:07


Israel’s seemingly hysterical reactions to ongoing Palestinian protests against efforts by Messianic Jewish fanatics to gain a foothold at the Aqsa Mosque, one of Islam’s holiest sites, caricatures a state and society overwhelmed by collective psychosis and mental disorientation.

Features of this collective mental disorder includes feelings of megalomania and supremacy, utter contempt for laws and norms regulating relations among individuals and societies as well as an utter disregard for the lives and rights of the “other” in this case the Palestinians.

In projecting this all-encompassing morbidity, Israelis, including government officials, media operatives as well as ordinary people, constantly feel the urge to lie, even maliciously, in order to maintain the mental sanity of their society and reassert the staunchly-guarded myths and legends they were taught and became part of their lives since early childhood.

State Department forced to retract statement suggesting Israel incites violence

Kirby’s damning remark followed a series of questions aimed at providing context for the “upsurge in violence,” and specifically where the blame and responsibility should lie. Initially Kirby responded to questions surrounding the massive increase in settlements with a bunch of mumbo gumbo about challenges on both sides, and “not trying to affix blame .. too particularly” (seriously folks). He mentioned there was “nuance and context behind the violence”.

And then he was asked point blank why it was so important “not to affix blame”. He was dodging bullets and redirecting the focus to de-escalation of tension, restoring calm, and moving forward “towards a two-state solution”. But this didn’t stop the questions which included recognizing Jewish acts of terrorism (yes, “And we do”). Queried on whether the administration considered Israeli visits to Haram al-Sharif/Temple Mount incitement Kirby tiptoed carefully

In a Corporate State no one but a stooge will stand as President. No matter whether in charge is a bubba from Arkansas, a sham cowboy, a sissy black, or a warmongering harebrained bitch: a stooge bears no responsibility. However indecent or heinous he might be, as long as he’s doing his Corporate Bidding, he’ll brazenly beat the rap. The rise of dissenting voices will remain offstage; unheard, ineffective. A Corporate State holds power over the citizens through the Corporate Media apparatus, which spreads scourge by shaping opinion.

Mesmerized by News channels and distracted by status quo-supporting Hollywood paradigm, Corporate Citizenry firmly believes itself to be free and safe, while shamelessly parroting events and statements it was indoctrinated to, proudly saluting its flag, listening to and thanking the Stooge-in-Chief.

EU Directly Funds Israeli Military Companies and Institutions

Aside from maintaining this siege and engaging in direct military attacks on Gaza, the Israeli army’s primary ongoing task is to enforce the Occupation of the Palestinian land and people. Israeli arms companies benefit enormously from European Union expenditure. With a total budget of nearly €80 billion, Horizon 2020, the new EU research and innovation programme, is one of the world’s largest research and innovation programmes. Israel is associated to Horizon 2020 allowing Israeli entities to participate in the programme. Already during the previous funding cycle (FP7), Israeli entities participated in over 1500 projects.

On February 9th 2015, the Israeli R&D Directorate for the European Research Area (ISERD) published a document announcing that the EU had already approved 205 projects with Israeli participation with a total value of €452,3m1 within the Horizon 2020 research cycle.

Israeli Media Fabricating Jewish Deaths & Lying To Public

After being chased by terrorist settlers through the illegal Besgat Za’if settlement (spelled Pisgat Ze’ev by JPost) who wanted Ahmed dead, the mob called to Israeli police to shoot him, claiming he stabbed a Jew. The police and soldiers did not hesitate and they shot Ahmed and his 15-year-old cousin, Hasan, many times. The video shows the Zionist settlers screaming at Ahmed to die, while he lay terrified, bleeding to death, crying for help. The contempt for his life is inhuman.

Jerusalem Post not only fabricated a news story about this incident, they also reported that Ahmed’s death was instead the death of a Jewish child the same age. JPost edited the video of Ahmed’s brutal execution to show a few second clip of medics administering aid to the supposed jewish child, using Ahmed’s execution as their evidence, while providing no names of the victims. This was a filthy attempt to cover-up the Israel’s Zionist crimes.

Defending the Indefensible: How The NY Times Spins for Israel

It’s a topsy-turvy world in The New York Times. Palestinians are dying, but it is Israelis who are fearful. Unarmed Palestinians face the threat of heavily armed settlers and security forces, but it is not Palestine that has a security problem; it is Israel.

This is the scenario we find today in a story by Isabel Kershner titled “Stabbings, and Deadly Responses, Add to Israel’s Security Challenge.” Here we learn that Israelis have a “shattered sense of personal security” after a series of lone-wolf stabbing attempts.

Kershner takes all the stabbing allegations as fact, rejecting any evidence to the contrary, and nowhere in this lengthy story do we find any concern for how Palestinians are feeling even though more than two dozen have been killed since Oct. 1 and more than 1,300 wounded (compared with four Israelis killed and some 28 wounded in the same time period).

Anti-Semitic Attack at UC Berkeley as Man Bursts Into Classroom Screaming & Pointing Small Black Object at Palestinians - NO media

This startling act of hate at UC Berkeley occurred only one day after the Umpqua, Oregon shootings where nine people were murdered. The suspect in this case was arrested by police and removed from the classroom, but this has not gotten any coverage whatsoever- except from one Berkeley community newspaper. No name or details (such as charges) have been released on the suspect, who burst into the classroom and disrupted (terrorized) the Palestinian speaker event. A cursory search reveals not a single news item about this incident. I wonder why that is? If an Arab (or anyone else) had burst in to a meeting of a Jewish or pro-Israeli group, one day after the Oregon shooting no less, it would have made international news.

A series of events led him to see the world in a whole new way- and he found himself protesting with Palestinians being tear-gassed and shot with rubber bullets by his own fellow Israeli soldiers. He explains how the Israeli military are training American police and how even if people don't care about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict now, these very police will oppress us next, as they are taught to view the people as the enemy. A powerful, well done, and impressive presentation well worth watching.

Hamas Leader in Gaza Declares Intifada as Israeli Troops Kill Palestinians

The leader of Hamas in Gaza has labeled the ongoing violence in Jerusalem and the West Bank an intifada, as six Palestinians were shot and killed Friday while protesting at the border fence.

In a sermon for Friday prayers at a mosque in Gaza City, Ismail Haniyeh said:

"We are calling for the strengthening and increasing of the intifada. It is the only path that will lead to liberation. Gaza will fulfil its role in the Jerusalem intifada and it is more than ready for confrontation."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to Imam Haniyeh; sir, have you lost your reality license, or are you an Israeli shill, to be making this kind of comment?!?

All you are doing is legitimizing Israel's desire for more serial genocide against your own people. Why in the name of heaven did you make those incendiary remarks?!?

And Gaza is FAR from "...ready for confrontation." It doesn't have the military might, the level of agreement about tactics, and troop strength against the IDF to accomplish anything but creating even more misery for the Palestinian people.

What Palestine needs right now is.... another Gandhi.

Please remember, Imam; Gandhi got the British out of India with non-violence.

Something you might do well to remember, sir.

The PLO delegation also quoted from a previous show during which Stern said, “The Arab world has to be taught a lesson, that we are the boss and you are going to be our dogs… let Israel loose… it could be taken care of in an hour; you could wipe them off the face of the earth…I’d blow up… the Palestinians… blow them all up and be done with them, and you won’t miss a night’s sleep.”

On Monday, Israeli forces shot dead three Palestinian youths, bringing the total number of Palestinians killed since heightened violence erupted on 1 October across the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip and inside present-day Israel to 27.

More than 1,300 Palestinians have been injured by live ammunition and rubber-coated steel bullets, according to the Palestinian Authority health ministry.

In the same period, four Israelis have been killed and 67 injured.

Palestinians have called for a general strike in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and present-day Israel to protest Israel’s escalating repression.

Israel Palestine Conflict Is Now A Religious War

Two days ago I wrote that the Israeli Palestinian conflict has become a religious war and that our understanding of this battle must evolve to fit the new reality. My observation seemed reasonable to many. As soon as I published my paper, Press TV called and asked me to comment on the topic on air. Many Palestinians contacted me to thank me for saying what they also believed to be an accurate description of their situation on the ground.

However, some of my friends and supporters, including a few Diaspora Palestinians, were genuinely offended and disturbed by my reading of the situation. Their argument was that the Palestinians’ claim to their land doesn’t require a religious authority to legitimize it. Another argument was that viewing the conflict as a religious battle is ‘not good for the solidarity movement.’

FLASHBACK - Types With Tired Fingers

I have recently had a religious epiphany. I have decided to convert to the Sun Dance faith. This is a religion practiced by many of the North American native people for thousands of years. It's easy to be a Sun Dancer; you can see the Sun! That's a definite plus compared to religions relying on that imaginary playmate in the sky.

I have long felt a kinship with my newly adopted religion and people as you can see in this photo of myself and my wife from the early 1990s.

In the spirit of traditional naming custom I have taken an aspect of my life as a blogger and adopted my new Native American name, "Types With Tired Fingers." Because I am now religiously connected with the original people of the North American continent, who have been there for thousands of years, I hereby call on the United States Government to withdraw and return this land to its rightful traditional owners, myself included.

"Where did this man get this wisdom and these mighty works? Is not this the carpenter's son? Is not his mother called Mary? And are not his brothers James and Joseph and Simon and Judas? And are not all his sisters with us?" (Matthew 13.54-56).

Jesus was part of an extended family. The Bible says he had brothers and sisters. Some churches try to spin that these were only cousins, or Joseph's from a previous marriage, but Mary, Jesus' mother, was not an only child. At the very least, Jesus had cousins, Aunts, and Uncles. John the Baptist was Jesus' second cousin according to Luke 1:5-38.

For the purpose of this discussion, we do not need to go into the question of whether Jesus and Mary Magdalene were married and had a family.

But the fact is that Jesus had kinfolk; blood relations, at least on his mother's side (although the Bible provides a paternal genealogy for Jesus back to the House of David).

On Thursday night, with the current terrorism wave on my mind, I covered a violent protest organized by two far-right Jerusalem groups, which was attended by about 700 people. Police reported that the protesters threw stones toward officers, and a few protesters were arrested.

During their entire march, organized by La Familia (a group of far-right fans of the Beitar Jerusalem soccer club) and Lehava (a right-wing organization dedicated to preventing the “assimilation” of Jews with non-Jews in Israel), the protesters chanted slogans such as “death to Arabs” and “may your village burn,” and looked for Arabs to attack. And indeed, after the protest ended a number of the participants attacked a taxi driver and attempted to attack other Arab passersby.

Both the criminal, racist state of Israel, and the Palestinian Authority (PA), a police state without a state which we all know is at Israel’s beck and call, are reacting characteristically, each in its own way, to the ongoing popular Palestinian protests in the West Bank, especially in Occupied East Jerusalem.Israeli officials, including Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, have been threatening Palestinians with death and destruction if they continue with their protests, which he conveniently calls “terror.”

Netanyahu, of course, ignores the incomparably greater Jewish terror against Palestinians, which is continuing unabated, with full government backing and encouragement.

Killing Fields: Are Israeli Forces Preparing For Another Genocidal Massacre of Palestinians?

Last night in Jerusalem, new clashes saw more wounded Israelis and a Palestinian shot dead, as tensions continue to rise in Israel and its Occupied Territories.

Not surprisingly, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is blaming this fall’s wave of violence on the native Arabs and foreign countries who support them. He blamed recent violence on the Palestinian Authority that (sort of) controls the West Bank, and of course he blames Hamas in Gaza, claiming that their “incitement and libels and lies” have set off unrest.

“All of us, we’re in the midst of a wave of terrorism… terrorists that are incited, filled with hatred and trying to hurt people,” said Netanyahu.

Israel continue to suppress any effort for an independent Palestine.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has stated he does not want the current situation to escalate. Many feel that Abbas is holding back a new intifada, but wonder for how long.

Netanyahu Unleashes Settler Attacks, Targets Palestinian Hospitals and Patients

Netanyahu-ordered state terror continues raging with no end in sight. Heavily armed soldiers, militarized police, border guards and other security forces are systematically terrorizing Palestinians - beating, wounding and murdering them in cold blood.

Police states operate this way, Israel one of the vilest, run by Arab-hating fascists, criminal thugs by any standard, unrestrained brutality their mode of operation - fully supported by Washington.

Netanyahu unleashed extremist settlers to commit “vigilante attacks against Palestinians,” the Yesh Din human rights group explained.

It got dozens of complaints from terrorized Palestinians. They’re being attacked and injured, their property vandalized. At least one arson incident was reported. Homes were broken into, crops and olive trees destroyed.

History: Science or fiction? Revised Chronology -- our ancient history has been forged.

From Anatoly Fomenko's book, "History: Science or Fiction?"on the "Crusades & Exoduses", some of Fomenko's conclusions:

• "Accepted" chronology was largely manufactured by Joseph Justus Scaliger in Opus Novum de emendatione temporum (1583) and Thesaurum temporum (1606), and represents a vast array of dates produced without any justification whatsoever, containing the repeating sequences of dates with shifts equal to multiples of the major cabbalistic numbers 333 and 360. The Jesuit Dionysius Petavius completed this chronology in De Doctrina Temporum, 1627 (v. 1) and 1632 (v. 2).
• The New Testament is older than the Old Testament.
• The Old Testament had not been part of the Bible up until the end of the XVI century.
• The Old Testament represents a rendition of events of the XIV to XVI centuries AD in Europe and Byzantium, containing “prophecies” about “future” events related in the New Testament, a rendition of events of AD 1152 to 1185.
• The history of religions runs as follows: the pre-Christian period (before the XI century and the birth of Jesus), Bacchic Christianity (XI and XII centuries, before and after the life of Jesus), Christianity (XII to XVI centuries) and its subsequent mutations into Orthodox Christianity, Catholicism, Judaism, and Islam.
• The Hagia Sohpia is actually the biblical Temple of Solomon. Fomenko identifies Solomon as sultan Suleiman the Magnificent (1494-1566).
Nowadays the Hebraic language of the Bible is believed to be the predecessor of the modern Hebrew. However, this appears to be incorrect. The meaning of the term “Hebraic” has been changing over the years, and could be interpreted differently during different epochs. This is another manifestation of the mutability of the old names over the course of time. According to our hypothesis, the holy books of the Christian church were also written in the ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs, or in Hebraic.
It is possible that the “Hebraic” version of the Bible can be found among these hieroglyphs, since the very word Bible stems from the same root as the word Babylon, or Byblos. [Is this why ISIL is destroying ancient sites -- to keep the truth of our history hidden?]
Florence and the House of Medici bankrolled and played an important role in creation of the magnificent ‘Roman’ and ‘Greek’ past.

Stabbing Each Other

Those who were naive enough to buy into the idea that the Israeli Palestinian battle is a ‘political conflict’ must revise their perception of this matter. The images of religiously motivated Israelis and Palestinians stabbing each other with knives and screwdrivers reveal a simple and undeniable truth -- we are witnessing a colossal religious and ethnic conflict. Unlike ‘political disputes,’ religious and ethnic disputes are rarely resolved, at best; such disputes can be temporarily suppressed. The current conflict in Israel is violence at the most personal level. Tragically, this phenomenon is a persistent theme throughout Jewish history.

Video: Palestinian killed in Jerusalem was not a threat

“After viewing the film it can’t be denied that Israeli police officers killed a person in cold blood, when he wasn’t a danger to anyone and they should be tried for it,” wrote Local Call’s John Brown who published the latest video. “Even a person that stabbed another has a right not to be executed by the police, even with pressure from the crowd,” continued Brown.

After the attack Malka was taken to a Jerusalem hospital for moderate wounds.

Aloon’s remains are still held in Israeli custody. A Jerusalem court announced today he will soon be transferred to his family for a burial in Issawiya, but not without restrictions. Once the body is handed over, the funeral must take place immediately with no more than 50 persons present, and the Aloon family will have to pay $5,250 (20,000NIS) in fees.

‘Replace’ the mosques? Once again, ‘NYT’ soft-pedals Israeli extremism

The point is that talking about blowing up the mosques is part of the culture in Israel; it is not just a “dispute” over “who can pray there.” When you hear about these ideas, Palestinian fear and anger — like this Palestinian leader’s alarm a year ago that the Israeli government wanted to blow up the mosque — do not seem so extreme. What if Protestant militants threatened to blow up St. Patrick’s Cathedral on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan and build a Presbyterian church there instead? Is it possible American Catholics would get exercised about these visions?

‘There is no co-existence with cancer’: Right-wing Israelis demand gov’t give military ‘free hand’ to fight Palestinians

Brandishing their typical black and yellow flags and Hebrew signs boasting “Kahane was Right” and “There is no co-existence with cancer,” hundreds of right-wing activists took to the streets of Jerusalem Thursday night in a growing phenomenon of public demonstrations led by the country’s leading fascist groups such as Lahava and La Familia. Despite negligible attempts by Israeli police to force the demonstrators from proceeding (the demonstration was not granted prior police approval), the Jewish crowds began marching at around 9 pm when police officers made it readily apparent that they had no intention of halting the mostly youth from making their away across the city

It happened today, only five minutes from my house. Watch closely as the impostor (IDF) demonstrators (dressed as Palestinians) instigate violence to lure real Palestinians to clash, then capture them. If you watch even more closely, the “most moral army in the world” actually shoots point-blank the person they are trying to arresting in the leg while soldiers take turns punching and kicking him.

The march came at the end of day that saw Israeli forces kill two Palestinians and Palestinian attackers wound nine Israelis, including two soldiers, in four separate attacks, the highest number of serious injuries inflicted on Israelis in recent weeks. At the time of publication the right-wing group was marching from West Jerusalem into Palestinian East Jerusalem.

Video: Undercover Israeli soldiers infiltrate Palestinian demonstration, beat protesters and shoot detainee in leg

Undercover Israeli forces infiltrated a group of Palestinians protesters this afternoon near a checkpoint outside of Ramallah in the West Bank and opened fire on the demonstrators, wounding one. Meanwhile unformed Israeli soldiers wounded two more protesters with live rounds, critically injuring one by firing a shot into the back of the protester’s head.

Video of the incident published by journalist Ahmad Jarghoun (above) and AFP (below) reveal eight Israeli security forces dressed as protesters with their faces covered, and one with a Hamas flag. After participating in the protest confronting uniformed soldiers and throwing stones, the undercover forces suddenly drew their weapons against the Palestinian demonstrators.

Based on this, I suspect the Jerusalem stabbings are also being done by undercover Israelis.

Listen: Why new Israel lobby smears are “good news” for activists

Last week, Palestine Legal and the Center for Constitutional Rights released a detailed report on the escalation of tactics deployed by Israel lobby groups to smear and derail Palestine solidarity activism on US campuses.

These include targeting students and faculty with false accusations of terrorism or anti-Semitism, threats of legal complaints and administrative disciplinary actions. Flush with new injections of cash from right-wing Israel supporters, including billionaire Republican Party donor Sheldon Adelson, lawyers and students are bracing for “dirtier tactics” to spread across US campuses in the coming school year.

Israel lobby groups explicitly aim to crush student-organized boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) campaigns, which have been steadily gaining victories in university settings.

Students say that these silencing attempts reveal that Palestinian rights organizing is having an irreversible impact as it becomes more mainstream.

Shot dead in a school uniform

It is not unusual to see youth from the Aida refugee camp in Bethlehem fight with the Israeli forces of occupation. But the clashes which followed Israel’s slaying of 13-year-old Abdulrahman Shadi Obeidallah — or Abdo, as he was affectionately known — were among the fiercest that residents have seen in recent years.

For hours after Abdo’s funeral procession on Tuesday, anyone entering the camp had to wade through clouds of tear gas that had been fired by Israeli soldiers. Young locals, many of whom knew Abdo personally, could be seen gathering rocks and tires in preparation for another riot.

The sense of collective grief and rage is always palpable when a Palestinian is martyred. Nowhere is this more so than in refugee camps, where communities are bound together in resistance and by the desire of returning to homes from which they were expelled.

Dissent On Israel Not Permitted At Bernie Sanders Event

Another Zionist who puts Israel first instead of his own country.

Fast forward to 2015, this past Saturday, when Bernie Sanders, an increasingly viable contender for the Democratic presidential nomination, held one of his biggest campaign rallies to date, drawing more than 20,000 people to an event at the Boston convention center. Among those visitors were a number of young activists from Boston Students for Justice in Palestine, who were curious about Sanders’ position on the occupied territories. They had a sign with them; in a playful nod to one of Sanders’ campaign slogans, it simply asked, “Will Ya Feel The Bern For Palestine?” The activists say they were well-received by other Sanders supporters in the crowd.

Security was made aware of a threat: Some students who support Sanders were holding a sign with a question on it. A tactic right out of the Bush campaign “playbook” went into action. “They told us to either put the sign away or leave,” said Sana Hashmani, one of the student activists. “We asked why, and they said that Bernie’s campaign staff had said the sign had to go.”

For years, the singer-songwriter has supported the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, supporting Palestine and urging his rock-star peers not to perform in Israel. "What is with Roger Waters and the Jews?" Stern said in a seven-minute rant on his show, via The Washington Free Beacon. "Why does Roger Waters live in America, a country that was founded on white people coming in and obliterating the native population? How does he stand it? Why don't we just all leave?"

39 Palestinians injured in clashes with IDF in Ramallah - reports

Ramallah has seen some violent clashes with the IDF confronting crowds of stone-throwing Palestinian youths with tear gas and rubber bullets. 39 Palestinians have been injured in the clashes, according to local media. A standoff between Palestinians and the Israeli army turned violent at Qalandiya military checkpoint, with 25 Palestinians injured, five of them by live fire and 10 by rubber-coated steel bullets, said the Palestinian Red Crescent, cited by Ma’an news agency. Palestinian youths were reported to throw rocks, bottles and Molotov cocktails at the soldiers. During nighttime clashes at Beit El checkpoint, eight Palestinians were reportedly injured with rubber-coated steel bullets, while at Atara checkpoint, also not far from the West Bank city of Ramallah, two Palestinian teenagers were hit by shrapnel. The Red Crescent Society has accused the Israeli military forces of shooting directly at an ambulance near Beit El.

Can Corporatized Universities Allow Criticism of Israel?

Salaita called his book Uncivil Rights because the accusations of unacceptable speech typically take the form of proclaiming a need to protect civility. Salaita didn’t tweet or otherwise communicate anything actually anti-Semitic. He tweeted and otherwise communicated many statements opposing anti-Semitism. But he criticized Israel and cursed at the same time. And to compound the sin, he used humor and sarcasm. Such practices are enough to get you convicted in a U.S. Court of Indignation without any careful examination of whether the sarcastic cursing actually expressed hatred or, on the contrary, expressed justifiable outrage. Reading Salaita’s offending tweets in the context of all his other ones exonerates him of anti-Semitism while leaving him clearly guilty of “anti-Semitism,” that is: criticizing the Israeli government.

Russia’s deputy chief of staff, Gen.

Dear Vice-Chancellor Grant,

If They Are Bombed - They Are Daesh - by Israel Shamir

Sleeping With the Devil: How U.S. and Saudi Backing of Al Qaeda Led to 9/11

We Created Al Qaeda to Fight the Soviets in Afghanistan

Jimmy Carter’s National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski admitted on CNN that the U.S. organized and supported Bin Laden and the other originators of “Al Qaeda” in the 1970s to fight the Soviets.

Brzezinski told Al Qaeda’s forefathers – the Mujahadin:

We know of their deep belief in god – that they’re confident that their struggle will succeed. That land over – there is yours – and you’ll go back to it some day, because your fight will prevail, and you’ll have your homes, your mosques, back again, because your cause is right, and god is on your side.
