Hundreds Displaced as Israel Opens Dam, Flooding Gaza Villages

Hundreds of Palestinian civilians were displaced today when the Israeli military, with no prior warning, opened a dam and flooded out the Gaza Valley, destroying a number of homes and leaving many under nearly 10 feet of water.

Gaza civil defense officials say the dam was opened without any notification overnight, and forced at least 80 families out of their homes and into a nearby refugee camp. It also destroyed considerable farmland in the area.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would speculate that there is someone in the IDF who is stays awake nights,thinking, "How can I POSSIBLY make the lives of Gazan Palestinians even WORSE than it is today?"

ABORIGINES IN ISRAEL ~~ PAST AND PRESENT

The Palestinian citizens of Israel stand at the crossroads of hope for peace in the Middle East, their achievements uncelebrated and their promise untested. As a member of this indigenous group, I try to bring our existence to light, to sing out our pleasure and pain, to echo our sense of alienation and dispossession, to face up to the dilemma of our identity, and to hail our occasional successes and our trust in the future.

Since the establishment of the state, we have endured systematic dispossession and ghettoization. Of late, the process has turned vicious: fundamentalist messianic Zionists and settler leaders, the abrasive curse of occupation, have assumed advanced positions in Israel’s political and military leadership.

Israel opens dams’ gates, floods Gaza

Hundreds of Palestinians have been forced to evacuate their homes in the Gaza Strip because of a move by the Israeli regime to open the gates of several dams surrounding the besieged area.

“The [Israeli] army opened the floodgates of a canal leading to central Gaza, which led to the removal of sand mounds along the border with Israel,” GAZA’s Civil Defense Directorate (CDD) said in a statement on Sunday.

“Opening the levees to the canal has led to the flooding of several Palestinian homes, and we had to quickly evacuate the afflicted citizens,” the statement further read.

Twenty one years ago this week terror struck out in Hebron. Thirty Palestinians at prayer were slaughtered by one Judeo nazi. There were no solidarity marches, there were no massive outcries in the Western Press, after all, the dead were only Palestinians. Instead there were graveside ceremonies glorifying the terrorist and his acts. Twenty one years later a compatriot of the terrorist is a candidate for the Knesset.

Leaked e-mails show that Israeli consulate, StandWithUs tried to thwart Northwestern divestment (Updated)

The Israeli consulate and other pro-Israel groups teamed up to try to thwart a divestment campaign at Northwestern University, according to e-mails obtained by Mondoweiss.

Their efforts ultimately failed, though. Last night, Northwestern University’s student government voted to recommend divestment from corporations linked to the Israeli army. The resolution passed with 24 student senators voting in favor, and 22 against.

The leaked messages are from a listserv for the campus’ Hillel. They provide insight into the inner workings of how pro-Israel groups, many of them from outside campus, are banding together to fight divestment resolutions on campus. The boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement on U.S. college campuses has become a major focus for pro-Israel groups over the past few years.

The long struggle of the Palestinians in Israel

Concomitant with Israel’s founding in 1948, its armed forces systematically expelled Palestine’s native population and razed some 500 of their communities to the ground in the largest and most successfully denied ethnic cleansing campaign in modern times.

A mere six and a half decades later, who knows about Damoun, for example? Who remembers it except for its surviving refugee sons and daughters and their descendants?

Why London’s SOAS should vote to sever links with Israeli universities

Next week, 23-27 February, there will be a school-wide referendum in which students, academics and other staff members will vote on whether to boycott Israeli academic institutions and put pressure on SOAS to follow the BDS guidelines.

For weeks we have been campaigning for a yes vote, organizing events, distributing flyers and posters to raise awareness about the complicity of Israeli academic institutions in the ongoing oppression and human rights violations of the Palestinian people.

In this video we as the student and academic body of the BDS campaign aim to expose SOAS’s collaboration with Israeli academic institutions, such as Hebrew University, which are deeply tied to the Israeli military. We should not, as students and academics, let SOAS maintain these links in our name.

Finally! The US is busting Israeli banks

Bank Leumi, Israel's second largest bank, admitted late last year to helping its American customers evade income taxes, hide assets, and launder their money back into the United States. The bank agreed to pay $130 million in fines to New York regulators and another $270 million to the federal government, and assist in an ongoing probe of other Israeli banks.

But I know that the FBI and SEC have known about this for decades because I personally flagged it to them in 1989, when Crazy Eddie was busted for fraud and I was trying to avoid prison time. (Which I did.)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, from 1989 to 2015, the US Government knew that Bank Leumi was helping American Jews avoid taxes, AND DID NOTHING ABOUT IT!

The Fallacy of Rising Anti-Semitism

Anti-Semitism is on the rise. All over Europe it is raising its ugly head. Jews are in danger everywhere. They must make haste and come home to Israel before it is too late.

True? Untrue?

Nonsense.

Practically all the alarming incidents which have taken place in Europe recently – especially in Paris and Copenhagen – in which Jews were killed or attacked – had nothing to do with anti-Semitism.

All these outrages were conducted by young Muslims, mostly of Arab descent. They were part of the ongoing war between Israelis and Arabs that has nothing to do with anti-Semitism. They are not descended from the pogrom in Kishinev and not related to the Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

In theory, Arab anti-Semitism is an oxymoron, since Arabs are Semites. Indeed, Arabs may be more Semitic then Jews, because Jews have mingled for many centuries with Gentiles.

David Cole: Holocaust is based on fakes, frauds, and forgeries

David Cole is not an “anti-Semite” or “revisionist”. He is ardently pro-Zionist, pro-Israel Jew. He is author of book Republican Party Animal. In his latest article, entitled Justifying My Existence, published at TAKI’s Magazine on February 17, 2015, he wrote: I attempt to correct the historical record regarding the Holocaust, primarily by sniffing out and exposing fake artifacts and fraudulent or improperly-used documents.

In no other field are fakes, frauds, and forgeries tolerated as they are in Holocaust history. And in no other field are the people who try to sort the fakes from the facts so ruthlessly attacked and in many countries imprisoned, David Cole added.

UN Report Reveals How Israel is Coordinating with ISIS Militants Inside Syria

The Syrian conflict continues to develop into a proxy war, pitting various foreign ‘national interests’ against one another, including US vs. Syria, US vs Iran, Saudi Arabia vs Syria, Qatar vs. Syria, Turkey vs. Kurdistan and Iran vs. Israel – to name only a few. So the support network behind Washington’s ‘Moderate Rebels’ and terrorist groups fighting in Syria is comprised of many contributing covert intelligence agencies, including the CIA, MI5/6, Mossad, France, NATO, Jordan and Saudi Arabia.

School near Nablus repeatedly attacked by Israel

A school near the occupied West Bank city of Nablus has been repeatedly attacked by Israel.

On 4 February, Israeli forces fired sound bombs into a secondary school serving the Palestinian villages of al-Lubban and al-Sawiya. A flimsy excuse was given to justify this assault on the right to education: Israeli settlers had alleged that pupils from the school had thrown stones at them.

How EU-US trade deal could thwart “boycott Israel” campaign

Two members of the US Congress have introduced a bill that would turn a giant trade deal between the EU and US into a devastating weapon against the people of Palestine and all those seeking justice alongside them. Together with the proposed Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) that is currently under negotiation, the proposed bill would compel all 28 EU member states to crack down on European groups participating in the growing movement of boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel in solidarity with the Palestinian people.

In order to combat the increasing isolation of Israel in global public opinion, European governments would effectively be turned into police agents for the US state.

Students allege “travesty of justice” as Ohio university muzzles debate on Israel divestment

After several hours of debate on Tuesday night, the student government at the University of Toledo in Ohio shut down a hearing on a resolution to divest from firms abetting Israel’s crimes.

Just before the vote was to take place by the student senate, the university’s Student Judicial Council, part of the student government, announced that it had ruled a resolution calling for divestment “unconstitutional” on the grounds that it was “discriminatory” and “one-sided.” The ruling allowed no recourse or debate and the entire vote was then scrapped.

As The Electronic Intifada reported, the university administration had insisted that discussions relating to the resolution be conducted in a secretive manner.

WHAT THE NETANYAHUS CAN LEARN FROM HARRY AND BESS TRUMAN

Harry Truman was a different kind of President. He probably made as many, or more important decisions regarding our nation’s history as any of the other 32 Presidents preceding him. However, a measure of his greatness may rest on what he did after he left the White House.

The only asset he had when he died was the house he lived in, which was in Independence , Missouri . His wife had inherited the house from her mother and father and other than their years in the White House, they lived their entire lives there.

When he retired from office in 1952 his income was a U.S. Army
pension reported to have been $13,507..72 a year. Congress, noting that he was paying for his stamps and personally licking them, granted him an ‘allowance’ and later, a retroactive pension of $25,000 per year.

After President Eisenhower was inaugurated, Harry and Bess drove
home to Missouri by themselves. There was no Secret Service following them.

Israel’s worst nightmare coming true: Commentator

Press TV has conducted an interview with E. Michael Jones, an editor at Culture Wars Online Magazine, to discuss a decision by the US government to limit the exchange of information with Israel over the ongoing nuclear negotiations with Iran.

Jones says the Israelis' worst nightmare is coming true, adding that the increasing gap between Tel Aviv and Washington is what Israelis have repeatedly warned Netanyahu about since one month ago, when US Congressman invited him to address a joint session of the Congress without coordinating with the White House.

A group of Israeli settlers from the Asfar (Metzad) settlement, to the east of the town of Al Shuyoukh, uprooted 550 olive tree saplings on Tuesday night and ran away.

Activist Ahmed Halayka said that the land is owned by Abdel Kader and Moussa Abu Shanab Al-Ayayda and located in the area of Zaafaran, where the Asfar settlement was established.

The land's owners, Al-Halayka noted, were shocked yesterday morning to see their trees, which had been planted around a week earlier, uprooted.

The Sarah Palin of Israel

The most powerful woman in Israel’s ruling Likud party has just moved into a trailer. Knesset member Miri Regev, the party’s attack dog and the closest thing Israel has to Sarah Palin, boarded the mobile home—attached to an Audi SUV—last week ready to crisscross the country campaigning for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, a man who never wanted her to be the face of the party to so many Israelis.

She admits that the trailer, decorated with the Likud’s blue colors and emblazoned with her face, is a gimmick, but it’s one that fits her well. She is, after all, the queen of media stunts—and a frequent object of mockery by Israeli journalists and satirists.

Israeli analyst warns European Jews not to migrate to Israel

Israeli analyst Zvi Bar'el has criticised Benjamin Netanyahu's suggestion that European Jews should migrate to Israel to escape what the prime minister claims is a "growing wave of anti-Semitism" and the "Islamic State threat". Bar'el pointed out that Israel is unable to fulfil Netanyahu's promises to new immigrants.

"Fear in Israel is greater, the crime level is higher and the terrorism threat is more real," wrote Bar'el in an article published by Haaretz newspaper. He pointed out that the real problem is not only that the Jews of Europe aren't safe. "The Jews of Israel have a hard time being convinced that their haven can face up to the threats in the region that Netanyahu warns them of daily," he claimed. "Let's assume that thousands of Jews do decide to abandon their businesses, studies, homes and livelihoods and board rescue flights to Ben-Gurion International Airport. What will they find here?"

White House Accuses Israel Of 'Distorting' Truth Of U.S.-Iran Nuclear Negotiations

The Barack Obama-led administration on Wednesday accused the Israeli government of misleading the public on negotiations between the U.S. and Iran over the latter's nuclear program. U.S. Officials reportedly said that Israel is engaged in “cherry-picking.”

“I think it is safe to say not everything you are hearing from the Israeli government is an accurate reflection of the details of the talks,” U.S. state department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said on Wednesday. She also confirmed that the U.S. government is withholding some details related to the talks from the Israelis.

An official government document revealing the true extent of this ‘special relationship’ is now available for the world to see.

At present, much is being made by Republicans in the US Congress about Iran’s alleged (and still non existent) nuclear weapons program and “the rule of law”, so this latest revelation only their own belies grandiose platitudes on the issue.

Ohio university imposes secrecy on divestment resolution

At the Unviersity of Toledo in Ohio tonight, student activists will argue in favor of a resolution to divest from US companies profiting from Israeli violations of Palestinian rights.

But the university administration is mandating that they must do so in a “closed meeting,” preventing both the resolution’s supporters, opposition and the general public from hearing presentations to the student government.

The resolution voting process will also be done by secret ballot, meaning that the student body won’t be able to know how their representatives voted on the resolution.

Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been left red-faced after a video shot by a celebrity home designer depicting his modest lifestyle was revealed to be recorded in his servants' quarters.

The 15-minute film by Moshik Galamin showed Mr Netanyahu's wife Sara guiding the viewer around the couple's home, where run down parts of the property such as creaking doors and frayed carpets, are detailed.

But it has now emerged Galamin was not granted access to the couple's upstairs living quarters, and Israel's Channel 10 TV claimed the kitchen in question was not even the one the Netanyahus use, but rather a secondary administrative kitchen.

The Palestinian ministry of information strongly denounced Israel’s channel 7 for fabricating claims about some of the journalists that had been killed by the Israeli army during the last war on the Gaza Strip, and described its report as “misleading.”

Israel’s channel 7 claimed in a recent report that eight of the journalists who were killed during Israel’s last military operation in Gaza were working for Hamas and Islamic Jihad.

The information ministry said in a press release on Sunday that the channel’s claims about the journalists was an exposed attempt by the Israeli government to shirk its responsibility for the crimes its army had committed against the journalists in Gaza.

Israeli Spying: The Mother of all Scandals

So here is the mother of all scandals.

For two years, the FBI has suspected AIPAC of spying for a foreign country, and for those two years (and for decades before) that group suspected of spying for Israel has been reshaping the US Congress for the benefit of a foreign government.

And THAT is the mother of all scandals.

Think about that as billions of your tax dollars flow to Israel while your roads and schools crumble and decay and services are cut.

Think about that as the coffins come home with your loved ones inside.

FLASHBACK - VANUNU'S PHOTOS OF DIMONA - 1985

Mordechai Vanunu brought his camera to work in late 1985, shortly before leaving his eight-year stint as a technician at Israel's nuclear weapons factory at Dimona.

Acting on his conscience, he carefully took about 60 photos of the top-secret labs and unique production processes involved. When some of these photos were originally published in the London Sunday Times' exposé, they confirmed his eyewitness testimony about the extent of Israel's nuclear weapons program and revealed Israel to be one of the world's top nuclear powers. To this day, the Israeli government refuses international inspection of Dimona and continues to deny the existence of its nuclear arsenal.

The Obama Administration has radically departed from the traditional U.S. relationship with Israel during this second term. Such a sea change in attitude by the American government augurs great changes on the horizon, both for the Middle East and the world.

It appears that this may be one of the ‘higher purposes’ of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He has so polarized the Israelis, the American people, and various camps throughout the Mideast that many now understand the status quo can no longer be maintained. Netanyahu has forced the Palestinian plight onto the entire community of nations.

Israeli election chief puts curbs on Netanyahu's speech to U.S. Congress

The head of Israel's election commission acted on Monday to limit any pre-election boost Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu may get from a March 3 speech to the U.S. Congress in which he will warn of the threat from Iran's nuclear program.

The speech has caused controversy in Israel and the United States, where the Democrats and the White House are angry that the Republican speaker, John Boehner, invited Netanyahu to speak at a sensitive time in the nuclear negotiations between Iran and six big powers including Washington, and only two weeks before Israel's closely fought March 17 election.

Following complaints from opposition parties, election chief Salim Joubran decided that Netanyahu's address should be broadcast with a five-minute delay in Israel, giving news editors time to cut any statements deemed partisan.

In response, according to Ignatius, the US has decided to "reduce the exchange of sensitive information about the Iran talks" with Israel.

Boehner: 'I didn't tell Obama I was inviting Netanyahu because I knew he would interfere'

Fox News' Chris Wallace interviews Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-In) about a lot of topics. From 4:57-8:10, they talk about Boehner's invitation to Prime Minister Netanyahu to address a joint session of Congree next month.

Boehner bluntly says that he did not tell the White House he was inviting Netanyahu (contrary to earlier reports), because he did not want President Obama interfering with Prime Minister Netanyahu coming to Washington.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Boehner needs to be charged under the Logan act.

FALSE FLAG ATTACK ON COPENHAGEN

The February 2015 attack on Copenhagen looks like a false flag attack carried out by Mossad, the CIA, and agents of Danish security services?

US to stop updating Israel on Iran nuclear talks

The US has stopped updating Israel on progress in talks with Iran over Tehran’s nuclear program, Channel 2 reported Sunday. The report was quickly denied in Israel and the US.

According to the TV report, US National Security Adviser Susan Rice has cut off contact with Israeli National Security Adviser Yossi Cohen on the talks. It also quoted chief US negotiator Wendy Sherman as saying that she will no longer keep Israel informed of the attack.

The channel characterized the move as revenge for Netanyahu’s planned speech to Congress next month, which has raised the ire of the Obama administration.

Lapid: Netanyahu has 'lost touch with reality,' should no longer be Israel's PM

Yesh Atid party leader Yair Lapid said Saturday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu "has lost touch with reality" and should no longer serve as Israel's premier.

"He [Netanyahu] has lost all connection to the reality of the concerns of Israel's citizens - with their daily lives and difficulties," Lapid said at a cultural event in Netanya.

During his year-and-eight-month tenure as former finance minister, Lapid said he witnessed the prime minister primarily focus on maintaining his position while he "increasingly lost interest in leading the country."

Lapid indicated that he was more in tune with the concerns of the Israeli public, noting that his experience with the finance portfolio allowed him to direct understanding of the economic landscape of the country.

To prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, he said, America should place heavy sanctions on Iran while maintaining the threat of a military strike.

At the same time I discovered the saxophone. By the age of 30, I left Israel and never went back.

Israel Slams Diplomacy, Threatens to Attack Iran

The Israeli Minister of Strategic Affairs is a position initially created in 2006 to give hawkish Avigdor Lieberman a position of nominal foreign policy. The portfolio’s role is simply to threaten Iran on a regular basis. Current Minister Yuval Steinitz takes that job very seriously.

On Thursday, Steinitz warned Israel could unilaterally attack Iran at any time, with no warning at all, and would consider it “self defense” because they consider the ongoing nuclear negotiations a failure.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Avigdor Lieberman: there is something called a "cost/benefit" ratio to any military offensive.

And I would like to assure you that, geopolitically, militarily, and economically, the cost of such an attack for Israel will far outweigh the benefits. The massive international sanctions which would result from such an unprovoked attack would put the Israeli economic into a complete downward spiral from which the country might never recover.

Remember, sir: Iran has not started a war in over 200 years; the same certainly could not be said with a straight face about Israel!

As ticked off as Obama is about Netanyahu coming to lecture both Houses of Congress on 3 March about Iran, he may well decide that if Israel attacks Iran, the US military will sit this one out; and then, where are you?!?

And it appears that you didn't get the memo about Russia and Iran signing a mutual defense accord, earlier this year. War with Russia, sir?!?!? I would not imagine that this is the outcome you would want for such an attack.

Please tell us, sir: would you attack Iran, knowing that one of the oldest, continually practicing Jewish communities lives here?!? Are you really ready to commit genocide against your own Jewish brothers and sisters?!?

I would therefore strongly caution you, the Knesset, and the IDF to be very careful about what you wish for as an outcome from such an attack; the unexpected consequences may be both horrific...and irreversible.

US Confirmed Existence of Israeli H-Bomb Program in 1987

The 1987 report’s confirmation of Israel’s advanced nuclear weapons program should have immediately triggered a cutoff in all U.S. aid to Israel under the Symington and Glenn Amendments to the US Foreign Assistance Act of 1961. Although 100 copies of the tightly-controlled report were apparently published, none seem to have made their way into the office of the President in time to cut off any of the $82 billion in aid subsequently delivered to Israel – or publicly issue the required waivers.

British politicians mull censorship of anti-Israel comments

Following the Charlie Hebdo attack and related killings, we saw continental European law enforcement agencies confirming that “freedom of speech” is a white liberal privilege, not a universal right.

With Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu brazenly claiming all Jewish victims as his own and cashing in on the attacks for blatant propaganda purposes, the French political elite signalled that the tragic events may be used as an excuse to crack down on criticism of Israel.

Now, it seems, British parliamentarians could go down the same road by considering bans on critical discourse while basing their criteria on extremely shaky definitions.

The U.S. Government Wouldn't Cover Up a Foreign Government's Murder of Our Military Men ... Would It?

The Israelis clearly knew it was an American ship, tried to sink it, and tried to frame the Egyptians for the attack, as shown by the following evidence:

(1) The Liberty was flying a huge, brand new American flag. The flag was 5-by-8 feet. The weather conditions were ideal to ensure the flag’s easy observance and identification, because it was clear and sunny, with a wind-speed which make for a constant ripple in the flag. After the flag was shot up by the jets, the Liberty’s crew replaced it with a 7-by-13 foot American flag, which flew during the entire duration of the attack.

(2) The Liberty had a unique profile and didn’t look like any other boat, since it had more and bigger antennas – including large, high-tech dishes and giant towers – than any other boat in the world (it was an NSA spy ship).

(3) The Liberty was marked with uniquely American numbering and colors in front.

Israel says it attacked only legitimate targets, alleging militants used the houses to hide weapons, fighters and command centers. Palestinians say Israel’s warplanes often struck without regard for civilians.

Steinitz Hints Israel Could Strike Iran as Nuclear Talks Drag On

Intelligence Affairs Minister Yuval Steinitz warned Thursday that Israel could act unilaterally against Iran over its nuclear drive, saying Tehran has failed to make concessions in talks with world powers.

"I won't be too specific but all options are still on the table," Steinitz told reporters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It should be recalled that Israel bombed the civilian power station in Osirak, Iraq, claiming it was a nuclear weapons factory. International experts examined the ruins of the power station after the 2003 invasion and found no evidence at all of a clandestine nuclear weapons factory such as the one Israel has under Dimona. So, if Israel bombs Iran's power station, Iran would be well advised to allow international observers (with the necessary radiation protection) to fully inspect the facility and confirm that Israel is batting zero with respect to correctly identifying nuclear facilities and needlessly exposed the Iranian people to a nuclear disaster.

On Tuesday, Feb. 11, the Emergency Committee for Israel released a letter to Hillary Clinton, urging her to attend the Israeli Prime Minister’s speech to Congress, scheduled for March 3. She may have to, given a new poll and pro-Israel competition from an unlikely source.

ECI, chaired by the Weekly Standard’s William Kristol, is a staunchly pro-Israel educational organization, which sees its goal as educating the public about “the serious challenges to Israel’s security and about what elected officials in this country are doing and should do in order to meet those challenges.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why is the United States (and more to the point the United States Taxpayer) in any way responsible for Israel's security? A better solution would be for Israel to stop running their country like a Bronze age kingdom and learned how to get alone with their neighbors in the 21st Century!

Lee Zeldin (R-NY), the sole Jewish Republican in Congress, told CNN on Thursday that in the wake of the apparent IS affiliation of a terrorist who last month attacked a kosher supermarket in Paris and killed four Jews — whom the terrorist said he targeted because they were Jewish — Jews should be added to the authorization for use of military force under consideration.

Backing his call was the Republican Jewish Coalition.

Both sides of the House, the Right and the ‘Left’ expressed support for the decisions, both fearing that votes would be ‘stolen’ by Zoabi’s candidacy as well as that of Marzel’s.

UN: Proven Ties Between ISIS And Israel

In a new report from the UN, it is revealed that the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) were maintaining regular contact with members of the so-called Islamic State since May of 2013. Initial reports from the IDF stated that this was only for medical care for civilians, but that story fell apart when the UN observers identified direct contact between IDF forces and ISIS soldiers, including giving medical care to ISIS fighters. Observations even included the transfer of two crates from the IDF to ISIS forces, the contents of which have not been confirmed at this time. Further the UN report identified what the Syrians label a crossing point of forces between Israel and ISIS, a point of concern brought before the UN Security Council. This report from the UN strengthens the claims by the Syrian regime that Israel is heavily involved in operations within the nation.

Israel backers celebrate death of Islamic State hostage Kayla Mueller

Hardline supporters of Israel are expressing joy over the death of 26-year-old humanitarian aid worker and sometime Palestine solidarity activist Kayla Mueller, who was killed while in captivity of Islamic State last week.

Islamic State (also variously abbreviated as IS, ISIS or ISIL) claimed that Mueller died in a Jordanian airstrike in Syria coordinated with the United States.

Although it has yet to verify the circumstances, the US government on Tuesday confirmed that Mueller was killed, prompting an outpouring of tributes from people around the world lauding her humanitarian activism.

But for Israel’s most hawkish supporters, Mueller’s solidarity work with Palestinians resisting Israeli occupation made her unworthy of sympathy and even deserving of death.

JON STEWART ~~ ONE LAST DISS AGAINST NETANYAHU BEFORE THEY BOTH BECOME HISTORY

The controversy over Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s invitation to speak to Congress, which Democrats see as a Republican ploy to undermine President Obama’s negotiations with Iran, is tragicomic. But the mess of behind the scenes bickering and childish insults are, improbably, threatening both US-Israeli relations and the very delicate international effort to resolve the Iranian nuclear crisis.

So naturally, Jon Stewart is the perfect person to take on this ridiculous mess, which he did during Thursday night’s episode of The Daily Show.

“One of our closest foreign allies is taking sides with Republicans against a Democratic president, which creates a major conundrum for Democrats,” Stewart said. “I’m reminded of a similar situation, faced by an Israeli king renowned for his wisdom.”

Conservatives Dance On Grave Of ISIL Hostage: 'Jew-Hating, Anti-Israel B**ch'

Not all conservatives used the death of American hostage Kayla Mueller to highlight the brutality of the Islamic State — some decided to focus their disgust on the 26-year-old's humanitarian work for Palestinians.

"No tears for the newly-departed Kayla Mueller, the ISIS hostage whose parents confirmed today that she is dead," conservative blogger Debbie Schlussel wrote on Tuesday, under the headline, "Kayla Mueller: Dead ISIS Hostage Was Jew-Hating, Anti-Israel Bitch."

"Mueller was a Jew-hating, anti-Israel piece of crap who worked with HAMAS and helped Palestinians harass Israeli soldiers and block them from doing their job of keeping Islamic terrorists out of Israel," she wrote.

Schlussel condemned Mueller's humanitarian work in the "so-called 'West Bank'" to prevent the demolition of "terrorists' 'houses.'"

In a Tel Aviv storefront, 84-year-old volunteer Zelda Harris is working the phones for the V15 group trying to unseat Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. U.S. billionaire S. Daniel Abraham, founder of Slim-Fast Foods Co., is helping to fund the effort.

Across the country, men and women in red jumpsuits hand out free copies of Israel Hayom, a pro-Netanyahu daily. The paper is financed by American gambling tycoon Sheldon Adelson.

Critics are concerned that cash from overseas donors will affect next month’s vote. “I would like to see foreign money out of Israeli politics,” said Hebrew University of Jerusalem political science Professor Menachem Hofnung. “Legally, it would be very difficult to do” because “you can’t stop people from funding certain ideas,” he said.

The law prohibits foreigners and Israelis living overseas from donating directly to candidates’ campaigns in the general election.

This holiday has its origins not in the Bible, but rather in the Mishna, which was written in the early 3rd century CE. It is primarily an agricultural holiday, as evinced by its other name, New Year of Trees.

This holiday is celebrated in the midst of the rainy season (late January or early February). It was originally a holiday with halakhic (Jewish legal) significance, as it was used to mark the age of a tree for the purpose of harvesting and tithing its fruit – tithes that were given to the priests who served in the Temple and did not own any land.

Netanyahu rejects criticism: I am determined to address Congress

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Monday that he is determined to address the U.S. Congress on Iran's nuclear program. Netanyahu rejected the criticism in the United States and Israel, saying that "while some are busy with protocol or politics, a bad deal with Iran is taking shape."

Speaking at a Likud election event, Netanyahu added that, as prime minister, it is his duty to do everything in his power to prevent a dangerous deal with Iran. "From the day Israel was established to this day, there have been essential differences between Israel and the U.S., and relations remained sound – this will be the case this time as well," he said.

"This is not a political issue or a party issue, neither here nor there. This is an existential issue, and I approach it with the fullest responsibility."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation from Netanyahu-ese into English:

"I will do my best to destroy any possibility of the P5+1 talks reaching a successful conclusion, and hijack US foreign policy on Iran...because I can!!"

And sir, forgive me, but talking about Iran as an alleged "existential threat" is morally disingenuous in the extreme.

Iran has not started a fight in over 200 years.

One certainly cannot say the same for the State of Israel, however.

And let just say, for the sake of argument, that Iran did develop a nuclear bomb. What would that mean for the State of Israel, which already has nuclear bombs?!?

It would mean, sir, that Israel could no longer attack Iran because it had a nuclear deterrent.THAT is what you are trying desperately to prevent.

The Iranian leadership is many things, but stupid is not one of them. They understand that should they attempt to attack Israel, the US and Israel would reduce Iran to smoldering green glass. So, the bottom line here is, they would not.

And just as do the Israelis, the Iranians love their children as well.

And am I not correct that Iran is home to one of the oldest continuing Jewish communities on the planet, who are so content with their lives in Iran that they are not too eager to "make aliyah" (immigrate to Israel)?!?

IF there were racial intolerance against the Jews of Iran, they would be moving as fast as they can from Iran, to find a new home in Israel, or somewhere else. But as you know, in the 1979 Iranian Constitution, Jews, Christians and Bahais were given the status of respected minority religions, and have a seat at the table in the Iranian Parliament.

Uh, sir, how many Palestinians are allowed to stand for election in the Knesset?!?!?
It is both a fair, and reasonable question, don't you think?!?

PM Considering Changing Format of Congress Address: Netanyahu's team reacts to criticism over planned address to Congress; may pull live TV plan.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's team is considering changing the format of his planned address to Congress, Reuters reports Monday, due to the waves of criticism directed at Jerusalem over the invitation.

Netanyahu's address to Congress on Iran was initially planned to be televised live, as important addresses have been in the past.

However, following the constant criticism leveled at Netanyahu for the invitation - which was extended to him by House Speaker John Boehner, but not directly by US President Barack Obama - the team is reportedly considering scheduling his address for a closed-door session of Congress instead.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short question for Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu: what do you want to say to Congress that the American people are not supposed to hear?!?

That, sir, is what every thinking American will want to know.

And a short memo to the American Congress: if you allow Netanyahu to do this, every single American will understand that US foreign policy, particularly as it effects the P5+1 negotiations with Iran, is dictated by Israel, and Congress has been completely co opted by a foreign government.

Several pro-Israel lobby groups in the United States have threatened to “publicly condemn” Democrats who plan to skip the Israeli prime minister’s speech about Iran before Congress next month.

Benjamin Netanyahu’s well-funded Jewish conservative backers say they may use their funds to draw attention in the districts and states of any Democratic lawmaker who is not at the US Capitol to listen to Netanyahu on March 3.

Netanyahu has been invited by House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner to address a joint session of Congress to speak about the “threat” of Iran’s nuclear energy program.

“This is, I think, a critical visit by the prime minister. If these Democrats would rather put partisan politics ahead of principle and walk out on the prime minister of Israel, then we have an obligation to make that known,” said Matt Brooks, the executive director of the Republican Jewish Coalition, a political lobbying group which promotes Jewish Republicans.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Messrs Kline and Brooks: what is in the best interests of Tel Aviv, many times is NOT in the best interests of the American people, the American military, and the American economy; waging war against Iran happens to be one of those things NOT in the best interests of this country.

And the utter, unabashed hubris, Mr. Klein, of demanding that Democrats who don't show PROVE that they were ill and could not attend Netanyahu's speach by way of presenting a Doctor's note to you?!?

But Mr. Klein, I cannot possibly thank you enough for having given me a marvelous idea for a slogan campaign, that the American people - and all of Rivero's Rangers - should be up to, regarding Netanyahu's blatant attempt to sway US public policy against Iran.

It should be Teeshirts, Bumperstickers, and logos, faxed into every congressional office thickly, and that is:

Regarding Netanyahu's address to Congress:

"Hell, no, don't you go
Hell no, don't you go
Did you not get the word
To put YOUR country
first,
second and third?
Hell, no, don't you go,
hell, no, don't you go
We don't need Bibi
To dictate our foreign policy,
Hell no, don't you go
Hell no, don't you go,
IF you don't treat your fellow citizens right,
you'll be treated like Kryptonite.

Thanks again, Mr. Klein! You are too kind. :-)

Netanyahu Vows to Sabotage Iran Nuclear Deal

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was among the first to recognize that a deal might happen, and saw this as a potentially huge threat to his would-be war. He’s now promising to do everything and anything in his power to sabotage the deal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu; sir, I would like to politely point out to you that you, and the country of Israel, are completely irrelevant to this process, where no members of the Israeli government were invited to join these negotiations, due to your transparent desire to be the warmonger-in-Chief against Iran.

I know, sir, that you have had an extensive university education, and speak brilliant English, so there is a word about which I wish to strongly caution you, particularly in light of your addressing a joint session of the US Congress on 3 March, to bully them into rejecting the treaty.

That concept, sir, is hubris: an unbounded pride which dictates that the person demonstrating this quality believes that there will be utterly no consequences to their actions, even if those actions are completely morally reprehensible.

Iran has chosen to sign the NNPT; Israel, which has a nuclear weapons program, refuses to become a signatory, and allow their nuclear sites to be inspected. We have known this from the late 80s, through the exposure of this program through Mordecai Vanunu.

It is an open secret in the West that there is no "nuclear ambiguity" for Israel.

As well you know, every bit of American aid, both military and monetary, is ILLEGAL, under the Symington Act.

Therefore, it is not the business of any foreign government, including that of Israel, to attempt to form or mold US foreign policy; but your address to Congress regarding Iran, is just such a blatant attempt to do this.

Thinking Americans resent this, because they understand that what may be considered by Tel Aviv to be in Israel's best interests, are many times NOT in the interest of the American people; and a war against Iran, which now means most likely means a war with Russia, on Iran's side, is not good for the American people, our military, or our economy.

You are expecting AIPAC to deliver the appropriate hammer blows to Congress in terms of threats to withhold money and support, after your address, and after their meeting in early March.

However, I would suggest that the results of reactions against your speech will include a backlash against more Iranian sanctions here at home, and a deeper distrust of you in Israel, ahead of a crucial election for you.

Sir, I would strongly urge you to be careful about what you wish for as the outcome of this speech.

Netanyahu: I will go to Congress like I went to Paris – to speak for all Jews

“I went to Paris not just as the prime minister of Israel but as a representative of the entire Jewish people,” Netanyahu said, during a conference for French-speaking Likud activists. “Just as I went to Paris, so I will go anyplace I’m invited to convey the Israeli position against those who want to kill us. Those who want to kill us are, first and foremost, any Iranian regime that says outright it plans to destroy us. I will not hesitate to say what’s needed to warn against this danger, and prevent it.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Netanyahu's ego is getting the best of him.

Netanyahu: I will not let US do deal on Iran’s uranium

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed yesterday to do everything possible to prevent world powers from reaching a “bad and dangerous deal” with Iran over its nuclear programme.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wonder if that includes bombing Iran.s power station the way Israel bombed Iraq's power station at Osirak. As a postscript, when inspectors examined the ruins of Osirak, they found no evidence that it was anything other than a power station.

The defense Bibi has settled on can be summed up in three words: “It’s Boehner’s fault.”

ETHNIC CLEANSING: ISRAEL’S ULTIMATE STRATEGY TOWARD THE PALESTINIANS

In a farewell speech, outgoing UN Special Coordinator for the so-called “Middle East peace process” Robert Serry has warned the apartheid state of Israel that continued settlement building in the West Bank was killing any remaining chances for the two-state solution.

Serry said the killing of the two-state solution strategy would transform Israel into a bi-national state.

Israeli leaders, with the exception of some isolated voices, scoffed at Serry’s remarks, with some spokespersons calling these remarks “stale and stupid.”

In These Very Moments, The Protocols Are Being Rewritten

For many years my detractors have pointed at the following quote as evidence of my anti Jewish sentiments:

"American Jewry makes any debate on whether the ‘Protocols of the Elders of Zion’ are an authentic document or a forgery irrelevant. American Jews do control the world."

Both Zionists as well as anti Zionist Zionists cling to this quote as evidence that my ideas are ‘anti Semitic’. As if Jewish power and dominance is a product of my sick imagination.

In the article on antisemitism that was published back in December 2003 I presented an extensive list of Zionist Jews in Bush Administration. I also pointed out that “in Clinton's administration the situation was even worse. Even though the Jews only make up 1.9 per cent of the country's population, an astounding 56 per cent of Clinton's appointees were Jews.” I tried to warn Jews that their excessive power is dangerous for our universe as well as Jewry.

Ros-Lehtinen removes pro-Palestinian activists from Congressional hearing on punishing PA for joining ICC

Many Americans who support Palestinians’ human rights were dismayed a few weeks ago when a House Foreign Affairs subcommittee announced it would hold a hearing on cutting off aid to the Palestinian Authority. The panel was announced in response to the PA’s application to join the International Criminal Court—arguably, among Palestinians, the only popular initiative that Mahmoud Abbas has taken in recent memory. The panel was made all the more offensive when subcommittee chairperson Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) revealed that the witness table would be staffed exclusively by neoconservatives—three out of four of whom have written about Palestinian children as constituting a “demographic threat” to the Jewish state. - See more at: http://mondoweiss.net/2015/02/palestinian-congressional-punishing#stha...

Palestinians condemn Canada’s repression of boycott movement, free speech

The largest Palestinian civil society coalition has condemned Canada’s escalating “disinformation campaign and repressive measures against the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement for Palestinian rights.”

“Rather than seeking to hold Israel to account for its war crimes during the recent military assault on Gaza and its intensified colonization of the occupied West Bank,” the Canadian government “is further deepening its collaboration with Israel’s occupation and launching a shameful, propagandistic attack on free speech in the process,” Rafeef Ziadah, a member of the Boycott National Commitee (BNC) secretariat, said in statement.

Israel contorts law to “excuse” attacks on Gaza’s civilians

A new report by the Israeli human rights group B’Tselem examines how Israel came to permit the widespread targeting of homes last summer. The report concludes that Israel violated international law but suggests it may not have violated its own policies.

George Galloway at BBC Question Time

BBC Question Time with guest George Galloway was an excellent opportunity to witness and assess, the vile, violent and ruthless Zionist community living in our midst. The Jews who heckled Galloway yesterday may have lived in this country for generations, but they have clearly failed to adopt British manners or the spirit of democracy into their behaviour.

MP Galloway went out of his way to distinguish between Israel and Zionism on the one hand, and Jews, Judaism and Jewishness on the other. However, the North London Jews in the hall made it clear that this distinction didn’t apply to them. They made it obvious that, for them, Israel is the ‘Jewish State’ and being Jewish, Israel is their State.

Guardian Executive Editor Jonathan Freedland repeated the exact same line, he asked Galloway to exercise responsibility and not to criticise Israel for what it is because the Jews are sensitive and fearful. For Freedland, the continuum between the Jew and Israel is undeniable.

The ugly truth about Israel’s actions in Gaza

What a huge diplomatic achievement: Israel has succeeded in getting the Canadian law professor William Schabas to resign from his post as head of a UN inquiry panel into potential war crimes in Gaza.

Through persistent surveillance, Israel’s intelligence and propaganda branches revealed that Schabas had once received a $1,300 fee from the PLO. Conclusion: he sold his soul to the devil. The ref sucks. Q.E.D.

One needs a great deal of chutzpah and arrogance to dig anew into the pasts of Israel’s critics in an effort to assassinate their character, as in the case of Richard Goldstone, merely because they dared to criticize the state. As far as Israel is concerned, the fate of anyone who criticizes the country is sealed. He’s an anti-Semite, anti-Israeli, greedy or driven by ulterior motives.

The diplomats held posts in Switzerland, India and Jerusalem (al-Quds), Israeli media reported.

‘Blood Diamonds’ and Israel’s Diamond Export Industry

In November, members of the Kimberley Process (KP), meeting in plenary in South Africa, squandered what was probably their last good opportunity to ban the sale of all blood diamonds, including cut and polished blood diamonds which are an important source of funding for the nuclear armed regime in Israel which stands accused of the crime of apartheid, war crimes and crimes against humanity.

The governments with a vested interest in the diamond industry, that set up and control the KP, failed to amend the definition of a “conflict diamond” which is restricted to “rough diamonds used by rebel movements or their allies to finance conflict aimed at undermining legitimate governments”. All other diamonds associated with human rights violations evade the KP regulations.

Poll: Netanyahu should be investigated for nuclear weapons tech smuggling

[ Editor’s Note: Articles are already coming out that Bibi has overplayed his hand, and AIPAC’s, gambling on a show of power by doing an end run on White house executive control of foreign policy.

They have put themselves openly on the firing line and I urge all to take full advantage of this golden opportunity.

Everyone should start planning to put your own Congressmen and Senators under the gun for defending their history of bending over for the AIPAC lobby.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No government can serve two masters, and a government that serves Israel cannot and will not serve the American people. A friend of Israel is no friend of America. I think every member of the US Government who is a 'friend of Israel' ought to be loaded onto a plane and flown there non-stop, one-way, and never allowed back. In these dark times America needs leaders who will put America first, second, and third!

Bibi’s speech to Congress boomerangs

In the past week Dermer, Netanyahu and Boehner have overcooked this dish until it’s ruined. Instead of enlisting Democratic senators to support new sanctions on Iran, the Israeli-American scandal had the opposite result. Netanyahu managed to do the impossible: He helped Obama rehabilitate his relations with his party members in the House and Senate.

The 10 Democratic senators who were considering supporting the sanctions are now toeing the White House’s line. The new legislation was put in the freezer until after the Israeli elections. Nancy Pelosi, minority leader of the House of Representatives, called Netanyahu and suggested reconsidering delivering the speech, and a group of congressmen started petitioning members for a letter calling on Boehner to put off his invitation to Netanyahu until April, when the prime minister may no longer be politically relevant.

How a war criminal can veto aid to Gaza

Has an Israeli war criminal been given a veto on what aid may enter Gaza?

Earlier this week, I wrote about how Yoav Mordechai, a major-general who took part in the 2009 attack against Gaza, had been invited to the European Parliament. Following complaints by Palestine solidarity activists and some of the parliament’s own members, Mordechai’s scheduled appearance was cancelled at the last minute yesterday.

He did, however, meet representatives of the European Union’s 28 governments.

It is both grotesque and logical for these diplomats to host Mordechai.

Dozens of European parliamentarians call for end to EU-Israel treaty

A group of sixty-three members of the European Parliament (MEPs) from across the five biggest political blocs in the parliament have called on European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini to suspend the EU-Israel “association agreement.”

The association agreement facilitates largely unrestricted trade between the EU and Israel, allowing Israel to participate in a wide range of the EU’s programs. It also permits Israeli arms companies to receive EU funding.

The MEPs argue that allowing the agreement to stay in place despite Israel’s recent massacre of Palestinians in Gaza “sends Israel the message that its violations of basic principles of human rights will be tolerated.”

Friedman Spreads Anti-Semitic Libels About Netanyahu Speech

Though the argument can be viewed as just one more spat promoted by an administration with an axe to grind against Netanyahu, with the talk of Democrats, even Vice President Biden, prepared to boycott the event because they see it an as an effort to aid Republican efforts to discredit President Obama’s foreign policy, the potential for real damage is no longer theoretical. But the most troubling development is not the ongoing arguments about whether the prime minister has committed a blunder. Rather, it is the willingness by some to use it to stoke anti-Israel libels. That’s the upshot of the latest column from the New York Times’s Thomas Friedman who claims Netanyahu’s speech will be seen as an attempt to force the U.S. into a war with Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This article is damage control for Netanyahu by playing that well-worn "anti-Semite" card, but the fact is that Boehner and Netanyahu stumbled badly, putting Israel's control over the US Congress on full public view.

The important thing is that Israel is on the defensive. Israel is trying to change the subject and is failing miserably. The Israeli military is weak. It is no more than a brutal, over-armed, over-financed and overly confident terror organization.

Israeli politicians and army commanders, when from time to time they lift their heads out of the sand, see a grim sight and they are worried.

Israel pretends its society is a normal, US-style melting pot, but there are only two problems – there is nothing remotely “normal” about Israeli’s societal composition and, furthermore, the pot’s ingredients, by policy design, have yet to melt. The destructive societal divisions amongst Israel’s population shines through during every election; this time around is no different. While Israel’s nearly five-decade military occupation of Palestinians is slowly, but surely, ripping Israel out of its global comfort zone, not one electoral contender has peeped a word about how the occupation will come to an end.

Promising that it would “ensure [the] complete equality of social and political rights to all its inhabitants irrespective of religion, race or sex; … guarantee freedom of religion, conscience, language, education and culture; … safeguard the Holy Places of all religions; and … [would] be faithful to the principles of the Charter of the United Nations” (source: The Declaration of the Establishment of the State of Israel, May 14, 1948), it was a narrative that most people supported and most people believed.

The US official insisted the claim was “complete nonsense,” though he similarly provided no insight into where the talks actually stand, in keeping with the administration’s desire to keep such details secret.

As the world is increasingly divided up into geographic “regions” under regional regimes cobbled together under the guise of pseudo-“free trade,” Israeli authorities are now quietly working to create what they call “free trade zones” with both the Communist Chinese regime and the Kremlin-dominated Eurasian Economic Union (member countries shown in green). The negotiations, officially announced this week, come as globalist plotters around the world accelerate their now-open efforts to subvert national sovereignty at a regional level — all on the road toward what top officials from Beijing and Moscow to London and Washington, D.C., regularly and openly refer to as their “New World Order.”

The theme is confessed ritually by every US president and Israeli prime minister, who have all claimed, more or less, that "the bond between Israel and the United States is rooted in more than our shared national interests; it's rooted in the shared values and shared stories of our people."

Commitment to this article of faith is a litmus test for anyone hoping to exercise power in American politics. Minor deviations can and do have major political consequences, a fact acknowledged last year by the conservative American commentator Tom Friedman, who disclosed that the first President Bush paid a massive political price for standing up to Israel back in 1990; Bush asserted US foreign policy towards Israeli settlements by conditioning $10 billion worth of loan guarantees on a total cessation of settlement construction. He was not re-elected for a second term.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There were other factors at work in that election. George H. W. Bush was in serious trouble. He had been able to hold the investigation into Iran-Contra at a distance, but he also knew that he would not be able to hold off the White House connection for another four years. So he arranged for the White House to go to the one Democrat he knew would keep the lid on the secret, then Democratic Governor of the state that was the US end of the guns and drugs pipeline, Bill Clinton.

But pissing off Israel didn't help.

Israel claims Iran sanctions a result of Israeli pressure

Israeli Intelligence and Strategic Affairs Minister Yuval Steinitz said on Sunday that the sanctions imposed on Iran were a result of Israeli efforts in this direction, Anadolu agency reported.

The minister also said that these sanctions have nothing to do with the interim agreement with Iran and governments of world powers known as the P5+1.

"Israel is seeking the full end of Iran's nuclear programme, not part of it," Steinitz told Israeli radio.

Dimona; Israel's not-so-secret nuclear weapons factory.

Professor Sues University of Illinois Over Firing for “Uncivil” Gaza Tweets

A professor who was fired from a tenured position at the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign because of his tweets criticizing the Israeli government’s bombing of Gaza last year has filed a civil rights suit against the University and its top officials, saying that his firing violated his First Amendment right to free speech and other constitutional rights, and basic principles of academic freedom.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In an honest court system this guy would win, because the tweets in question were part of his private life, not his conduct while on campus. Israel's supporters pressured the university into firing him to try to scare other academics into obedient silence regarding Israel in their own private lives. If Steven Salaita wins his case and there is a huge settlement, the floodgates will open and Israel will find itself facing the reality of a nation where freedom of speech is reaffirmed.

BEX ALERT - Support Of Israel Reason House Was Tagged With Swastikas, Frat Says

On Saturday morning – the holiest day of the week for Jews – swastikas spray painted in red on their Jewish frat house were the last thing these brothers expected to wake up to.

“I’m a freshman so I’ve never had to deal with such outward show of hate towards me and my people,” Itai Ofir said.

Ofir and his Jewish fraternity Alpha Epsilon Pi call it anti-Semitism at its worst.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is another obvious hate-crime hoax. The reason is simple. Other than Israel, nobody gives a damn about the Swastika any more! It's ancient history, and more to the point, it is a symbol of the side that lost WW2.

When you were a kid playing cops and robbers, or cowboys and Indians, you wanted to be on the winning side, either the cops or the cowboys. The smaller kids would have to be bullied into playing the Indians or the robbers. That is because people want to be on the winning side. Nobody wants to pretend to be the losers, and were it not for Israel constantly wagging the Nazis for propaganda purposes, they would be fading into historical obscurity which is where they belong.
