Palestinians clash with Daesh in Yarmouk Camp

Intense clashes continue between Palestinian armed factions and Daesh, who took over most of the Palestinian refugee camp of Yarmouk near the Syrian capital, Damascus.

Daesh militants stormed the camp on April 1, apparently in tandem with rivals from the al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front, even though the two groups have fought bloody battles against each other in other parts of Syria.

The terrorists attacked Yarmouk, home to Palestinian refugees since 1957 and located on the edge of the Syrian capital, in an attempt to kill a reconciliation deal between Palestinian armed factions inside the camp and more moderate groups seeking to keep the site away from the crisis in Syria.

Arab-Israeli Wars and Conflicts (1948-Present)

This page shows conflicts between the Arab nations (as a group), and Israel. As a rule, a legal state of war has existed between Israel and her Arab enemies since the beginning of the first war in 1948. Egypt signed a peace treaty with Israel in 1979, and Jordan made peace in 1994. The Palestine Authority, headed by Yassir Arafat and his Al-Fatah faction of the Palestine Liberation Organization negotiated a semi-peace, which, from mid-2000 on, has been destroyed through the “Al-Aqsa” Intifada violence. Other Palestinian groups, most notably Hamas, have been at war with Israel continuously. Although Israel and most Arab nations are technically in a continuous state of war, unless otherwise noted, specific outbreaks of fighting are considered to be separate wars.

Israel’s propagandists shoot themselves in the foot as they shoot off their mouths

They are known by the language they use: depraved sexual insults, bile, bigotry, threats, disinformation and character assassination. That’s right: I’m talking about “hasbarats,” Zionist trolls who infect the Internet with hasbara, pro-Israel propaganda. Of course, mainstream media hasbarats have been around for decades, as have “hasbaratchiks,” fifth-columns in foreign governments who subvert national policies to serve Israel. The Internet, though, is the latest, some might say the greatest, propaganda playground, and Israel cannot cope with factual, passionate, well-documented stories that expose its war crimes and unrepentant criminality.

Israel to pay Rwanda millions to absorb unwanted African refugees

Israel and Rwanda are working to finalize a multimillion dollar deal that would relocate hundreds of African asylum seekers living in Israel to Rwanda, Israeli media reported Friday.

According to Israeli news site Ynet, Rwandan President Paul Kagame said on Thursday that a deal was being worked out, and Israeli Interior Minister Gilad Erdan later confirmed the report.

US-Israel Wage War on Iran in Syria

Tony Cartalucci
Activist Post

The ongoing conflict in Syria has always been a proxy conflict aimed at Iran, as well as nearby Russia, and more distant China. As far back as 2007, two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Seymour Hersh warned in his 9-page New Yorker report “The Redirection Is the Administration’s new policy benefitting our enemies in the war on terrorism?” that a region-wide sectarian war was being engineered by the US, Saudi Arabia, and Israel – all of whom were working in concert even in 2007, to build the foundation of a sectarian militant army.

The report would cite various serving and former US officials who warned that the extremists the West was backing were “preparing for cataclysmic conflict.”

In retrospect, considering the emergence of the so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS), Hersh’s warning has turned out to be prophetic...

The Balance of Terror - Who’s Afraid of Iran’s Big Bad Bomb?

According to foreign experts, Israel has several hundred nuclear bombs (assessments vary between 80-400. If Iran sends its bombs and obliterates most of Israel (myself included), Israeli submarines will obliterate Iran. Whatever I might think about Binyamin Netanyahu, I rely on him and our security chiefs to keep our “second strike” capability intact. Just last week we were informed that Germany had delivered another state-of-the-art submarine to our navy for this purpose.

Israeli idiots – and there are some around – respond: “Yes, but the Iranian leaders are not normal people. They are madmen. Religious fanatics. They will risk the total destruction of Iran just to destroy the Zionist state. Like exchanging queens in chess.”

Such convictions are the outcome of decades of demonizing. Iranians – or at least their leaders – are seen as subhuman miscreants.

Israeli Officials ‘Furious’ Over Iran Nuclear Deal

It’s unsurprising given the decades of hostility they’ve shown toward diplomacy in general, but Israeli officials are reacting with outrage at the announcement of a framework deal between Iran and the international community.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has promised to do everything in his power to prevent an agreement, says that the framework “threatens Israel’s survival” by allowing Iran to keep portions of its civilian nuclear program.

Netanyahu and other officials are insisting the deal guarantees Iran will acquire nuclear weapons within the next year, though of course they have been predicting Iran would do so virtually non-stop since the Iranian revolution.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question is not what Israeli officials are "feeling", but what they are actually prepared to do to keep this deal from having a chance to survive.

We have about 90 days until the final form of the agreement is supposed to take its final shape; I have to wonder if Netanyahu is actually prepared to mount a military campaign to destroy Iran's reactors; he is just hubristic enough to believe that there will be no consequences, should he make that decision.

Or, will he try something covert, as Israel did with the USS Liberty?!? Will he order some kind of attack on an American ship, and claim it was Iran who was the culprit?!? (But seriously, folks, why in tarnation would the Iranian government and military DO something like that right now, in light of the fact that a preliminary framework for their nuclear energy program has been reached?!?

But should he do this, it would rope the US military into having to support a war against Iran.

Should that happen, Hezbollah will attack Israel from the North; Iran will counter attack, and well.... the big question at that point will be, what will Russia do?!?

I would like to remind Netanyahu that Iran and and Russia have signed a mutual military accord earlier this year; so a war against Iran will most probably be construed as a war against Russia.

I would also like to remind Netanyahu that Iran contains a population of one of the oldest-practicing Jewish communities in the world; any attack on Iran would mean that many of his Jewish brothers and sisters may well get killed in such an attack.

Dome of the Rock erased from kindergarten's Haggadah

Al-Aqsa Mosque replaced with trees in picture of Jerusalem's Western Wall in Kiryat Tivon nursery school's Passover booklet. 'This is not the kind of education I would like my children to receive,' says shocked father.

A Passover Hagaddah handed out to children in a municipal kindergarten in the northern town of Kiryat Tivon includes a picture of the Western Wall without the Dome of the Rock behind it.

Ofir Spiegler ran across the picture when his daughter brought the Hagaddah home before the Passover vacation. He discovered that the page which says "Next year in a rebuilt Jerusalem" includes a picture of the Western Wall with the Temple Mount and trees behind it. The Dome of the Rock, a Muslim mosque famous for its large golden dome, is nowhere to be seen.

Netanyahu: Any final Iran deal must include recognition of Israel’s right to exist

PM says Israel would not accept agreement that gives country that vows to annihilate Israel a nuclear bomb.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Netanyahu's arrogance is showing. First, Iran (and the other nations in the region) have made it abundantly clear they will recognize Israel's right to exist ... one second after Israel recognizes Palestine's right to exist. But as long as Israel maintains a policy of "We have a right to exist but you do not", the situation will deteriorate. Second, Israel is not a party to the P5+1 negotiations, so what Israel rejects has no real meaning, especially since Netanyahu's grandstanding speech to Congress has lost Israel the presumed US veto in all thing United Nations.

After Israeli security forces searched the Hebron area for him for 10 hours, 22-year-old Niv Asraf from Be’er Sheva, who was feared kidnapped, was found alive in Kiryat Arba on Friday overnight. IDF Spokesman Moti Almoz said Asraf’s soldier friend fabricated the kidnapping.

Asraf was found in a wadi in Kiryat Arba with canned food and a sleeping bag, a Judea and Samaria Police spokesman said.

“The ‘missing man’ and his friends staged a kidnapping. We’ll investigate the reasons behind this and will handle this to the full extent of the law,” the spokesman said.

Benjamin Netanyahu: Israel Cabinet strongly opposes Iran nuclear deal

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he and his Cabinet are united in “strongly opposing” an emerging framework agreement on curbing Iran’s nuclear program and demanded that any final deal contain Iranian recognition of Israel’s right to exist.

Iran and six world powers announced a series of understandings Thursday, with a final agreement to be reached by June 30. A final deal is meant to cut significantly into Iran’s bomb-capable technology while giving Tehran quick access to assets and markets blocked by international sanctions.

Netanyahu has harshly criticized the negotiations, demanding instead that the Iranian program be dismantled. He claims Iran cannot be trusted, and that leaving certain facilities intact would allow the Iranians to eventually build a bomb. Iran denies it has nuclear weapons ambitions and says its program is intended for peaceful purposes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Iran cannot be trusted? This from the leader of the nation which has for forty years kept its nuclear arsenal hidden?

Iranian president: World powers accept Tehran's right to enrich uranium

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has said Iran will keep its promises if the other side does, referring to Thursday’s preliminary nuclear agreement.

“The world has acknowledged Iran is pursuing its peaceful objectives,” he said during a press conference on Friday.

Rouhani said Tehran’s nuclear enrichment issue “is not a threat” to any other nation, and if the other sides keep their promises under the deal Iran will too.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US broke its promises under the P5+1 Preliminary Agreement, and the US is in violation of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty which both Iran and the US (but not Israel) have signed and ratified. Under Article 4, the US is obligated to assist Iran in the building of peaceful nuclear facilities, and if the US was really worried about a secret nuclear bomb factory underneath Iran's power station (like the one under Israels reactor at Dimona, stepping in to help pour the foundations and run the wiring for Iran's nuclear power station is a great way to ensure that it is just a power station. In ignoring their obligations to Iran under the NNPT and using the threat of military force to coerce Iran into surrendering their rights to peaceful nuclear technology under the NNPT, it is the United States which is ignoring its obligations under international law!

A nuclear deal with Iran based on current framework will “threaten the survival of Israel”, said PM Benjamin Netanyahu, warning it would increase the risk of a “horrific war.”

In a phone conversation with the US President, the Israeli Prime Minister expressed his opposition to a framework agreement reached with Israel on Thursday.

Netanyahu has once again called for a “better deal” insisting that the only way to reach it would be “standing firm and increasing the pressure on Iran.”

Netanyahu warned that if the final deal due to be signed in June, fell in line with the current framework, it would “increase the risks of nuclear proliferation in the region and the risks of a horrific war.”

Yes, this is surely in part a deflection, meant to shift attention away from concerns about Iran's nuclear activities by not-so-subtly nodding to the one country in the region that does have nuclear weapons: Israel.

Why Iran Should Get the Bomb

Nuclear Balancing Would Mean Stability

Apr 03 06:50

Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Bomb?

I must start with a shocking confession: I am not afraid of the Iranian nuclear bomb.

I know that this makes me an abnormal person, almost a freak.

But what can I do? I am unable to work up fear, like a real Israeli. Try as I may, the Iranian bomb does not make me hysterical.

My father once taught me how to withstand blackmail: imagine that the awful threat of the blackmailer has already come about. Then you can tell him: Go to hell.

I have tried many times to follow this advice and found it sound. So now I apply it to the Iranian bomb: I imagine that the worst has already happened: the awful ayatollahs have got the bombs that can eradicate little Israel in a minute.

So what?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am totally in agreement. Iran should be allowed to have a nuclear bomb.

Let us start with the fact that Iran has not invaded another country in a war of aggression in over 200 years, standing in sharp contrast with Israel and the United States, which these days cannot seem to go three months without invading, bombing, drone striking, or overthrowing some other nation.

Then let us talk numbers. Let is suppose Iran has one or two nuclear weapons. Israel, now confirmed to have had nuclear weapons since the 1970s, has anywhere from 200 to 800 nuclear weapons, including hydrogen bombs that the US helped it develop, according to a recently declassified US document. Israel has so many nuclear weapons that they tried to sell one to the former government of South Africa, according to documents released by the new government of South Africa. The United States has thousands of nuclear weapons, enough to destroy the surface of planet Earth, and bounce the rubble for an encore. So if Iran had one or two nuclear weapons, they might put them in a museum or march them down the main street of Tehran in a military parade, but they are not going to attack either the US or Israel, because the end result would be Iran melted into a giant slab of green glass.

What an Iranian nuclear bomb does accomplish is to make it far more costly for either Israel or the United States to invade Iran. That the US and Israel want to attack Iran is no secret; both have been talking about such a plan for decades. Israel wants to smash a regional political rival (as they did in Iraq) while the US wants to restore Iran to US puppet rule in order to profit from Iran's oil. The push to prevent Iran from creating a nuclear weapon is not based on fears of an Iranian attack but fears of an Iran invulnerable to conquest. For the people of the world, already weary of war after 12 years, allowing Iran to have a nuclear deterrent seems like a good way to reduce the possibility of these wars expanding into an all out World War III in which nuclear weapons inevitably will be used by the US, Israel, and anyone else who has them.

And please keep in mind that despite all the talk about Iraq's non-existent nuclear weapons and Iran's non-existent nuclear weapons, only one nation has actually used nuclear weapons against the civilians of another country; the United States. If any nation should be barred from having nuclear weapons, we should start with the nation with a history of using them!

Why Iran Distrusts the US in Nuke Talks

The Iranians may be a bit paranoid but, as the saying goes, this does not mean some folks are not out to get them. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his knee-jerk followers in Washington clearly are out to get them – and they know it.

Nowhere is this clearer than in the surreal set of negotiations in Switzerland premised not on evidence, but rather on an assumption of Iran’s putative “ambition” to become a nuclear weapons state – like Israel, which maintains a secret and sophisticated nuclear weapons arsenal estimated at about 200 weapons. The supposed threat is that Iran might build one.

FLASHBACK - Israel and the South African Nuclear Bomb Documents

Secret South African documents reveal that Israel offered to sell nuclear warheads to the apartheid regime, providing the first official documentary evidence of the state's possession of nuclear weapons. The "top secret" minutes of meetings between senior officials from the two countries in 1975 show that South Africa's defence minister, PW Botha, asked for the warheads and Shimon Peres, then Israel's defence minister and now its president, responded by offering them "in three sizes". The two men also signed a broad-ranging agreement governing military ties between the two countries that included a clause declaring that "the very existence of this agreement" was to remain secret. [Guardian]

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The time has come to ask why Iran should not be allowed to have nuclear weapons. The US justified its costly nuclear arsenal on the claim that it would deter aggression against our nation. Is not Iran entitled to deterrence as well? They face a nuclear-armed Israel, which has a long history of belligerence against its neighbors. Why do they not have a right to deterrence?

Of course, this is a rhetorical question. Both Israel and the US want an Iran that is easy to invade!

And Israel will always claim to have proof when they attack. They claimed they had proof that Iraq was building a nuclear weapons when they destroyed the power station at Osirak. Israel claimed to have proof that Egypt attacked the USS Liberty. Israel claimed to have proof Syria was building a bomb when they attacked that country. Of course, we never see the proof; only an anti-Semite would doubt Israel's word on anything, after all!

“The fact that they are subject to Apartheid, ethnic cleansing and — wickedly — a breach in international law and the Geneva Convention and United Nations resolutions by the government of Israel,” he told Sputnik in an exclusive interview.

A Belgian insurance company has refused to renew the policy of a Jewish kindergarten in Brussels. They cited the recent growth of anti-Semitic attacks on Jewish organizations, adding that the risk of insuring the school was too high.

The European Jewish Kindergarten is located in the same Brussels district as the European Union headquarters and it normally enrolls around 20 to 30 children per year. The decision by the Belgian insurance firm not to renew the school’s insurance policy was taken in relation to a marked increase in the number of terrorist and anti-Semitic attacks on Jewish institutions over the last few years.

Alan Hart, a former ITN and BBC Panorama correspondent and now an author covering Middle Eastern issues, spoke to Sputnik regarding the suggestion made by Republican US Senator, John McCain, that Israel should “go rogue” regarding the nearing nuclear deal with Iran.

“Does he really believe the propaganda nonsense that he speaks?” said Hart regarding McCain’s suggestion.

Holocaust Denial Laws: Evidence Inadmissable, Defense Forbidden

In the speech, Stolz discusses her experiences as a defence lawyer for so-called Holocaust deniers in Germany, and describes the Orwellian system of state-enforced repression there which denies defendants (and their lawyers!) the right to explain themselves under threat of additional charges for the “repeat offence” of expressing a forbidden idea, even in their own defence in a court of law. Stolz further relates how the subject of the Holocaust itself has never been clearly or adequately defined by the German courts through the normal channel of judicial findings-of-fact in precedent decisions. Instead, the courts have relied on the arbitrary doctrine that the facts of the Holocaust are “self-evident” and thus in no need of proof, despite the obvious objection that the arguments of the “deniers” themselves clearly demonstrate that those facts are indeed contestable and thus cannot be “self-evident” by definition.

From Gaza To Southampton – We Are All Palestinians

For the second time in just a month, a British academic institution has been intimidated by an orchestrated Zionist lobby.

Yesterday we learned that Southampton University has decided to withdraw its permission to hold the academic conference on International Law and the State of Israel. The decision was taken on the grounds of “health and safety” with the university claiming it did not have enough resources to mitigate the “risks.”

This comes just one month after the Royal Northern College Of Music cancelled a concert of mine for similar safety reasons. Like Southampton University, the RNCM was bullied by a violent pro-Israel group and it took us only a few hours to learn that the spokesperson for the pro-Israeli body was an infamous crook as well as a football hooligan (see here).

4 senators urge Obama not to impose peace conditions on Israel

Four senators sent a letter to President Barack Obama urging him not to bypass direct negotiations and impose conditions on Israel in an effort to create a two-state solution.

The senators — Ben Cardin (D-Md.), Susan Collins (R-Maine), Mark Warner (D-Va.) and Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) — wrote in a letter Monday that while they are committed to a two-state solution that would keep Israel secure and ensure economic opportunity for the Palestinians, they are against efforts to let the United Nations and other international bodies impose the terms.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The residents of Maryland, Maine, Virginia, and Mississippi need to get on the phones to those Senators and tell them their jobs are Maryland, Maine, Virginia, and Mississippi, and not Israel! Because there is an election next year and I don't think "Friend of Israel" is the vote-getter it used to be.

Boehner playing dangerous game by mixing Israel, race

Speaker John Boehner’s (R-Ohio) trip to Israel this week is so blatantly political that even the avowedly impartial Associated Press describes it as looking “like a jab at the White House.”

It is worse than that. President Obama can jab back in any political fight.

The real issue here is the way Boehner is recklessly sowing division along party lines on Israel. He is also — intentionally or not — heightening the silent but simmering racial tensions that increasingly divide Americans on the subject.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Boehner is proving that he is an Israeli stooge, and Obama has every right to arrest Boehner and every member of Congress currently in violation of the Logan Act and toss them in prison!

How Israel’s military stopped Netanyahu attacking Iran

A release of top-secret documents indicates that Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, has exaggerated – and possibly lied – with his repeated claims that Iran is on the brink of a nuclear bomb.

In September 2012, Netanyahu, armed with a cartoon, put it very bluntly at the UN General Assembly:

By next spring, at most by next summer at current enrichment rates, [Iran] will have finished the medium enrichment and move on to the final stage. From there, it’s only a few months, possibly a few weeks before they get enough enriched uranium for the first bomb.

However, as Netanyahu spoke, his military and intelligence services were assessing that Tehran was not enriching uranium to a level beyond that needed for a civil programme. They conclude: “Iran at this stage is not performing the activity necessary to produce weapons.”

Netanyahu: Now is time for international community to stand ground for better deal with Iran

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Wednesday that now was the time for the international community to stand its ground for a better deal with Iran, in a special press statement in Jerusalem shortly after negotiations resumed in Lausanne over Tehran's nuclear program.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This from the leader of a nation that has nuclear weapons, refuses to sign the nuclear non-proliferation agreement, refuses IAEA inspections, was caught trying to sell a clandestine nuclear weapon to the former government of South Africa, and a history of constant belligerence to neighboring nations. Netanyahu demands the world get a better deal from Iran, which HAS signed the nuclear non-proliferation agreement, DOES allow IAEA inspections, and has not initiated a war of conquest against another nation in over 200 years!

Palestinians join International Criminal Court

Palestinians have formally become a member of the International Criminal Court (ICC), a membership that enables Palestinians to sue Israeli officials for war crimes.

The Palestinian Authority officially joined the ICC on Wednesday, becoming the 123rd member of the Hague-based court.

The membership enables the Palestinians to file lawsuits against Israeli officials over crimes committed on Palestinian territory, including offenses committed during Tel Aviv’s war on the besieged Gaza Strip last year.

The Palestinian decision to join the ICC was made in January after decades of negotiations with Israel failed to put an end to Tel Aviv’s policy of expanding settlements on the occupied Palestinian lands.

In response to the decision, Tel Aviv cut off more than USD 120 millions in tax funds to the Palestinian Authority.

The Odigo Warnings & the 4,000 Israelis Saved on 9-11

Last October, when I visited Denver, I met with some of the core members of the Colorado 9-11 truth group. Two of the group's leaders, Frances Shure and Earl H. Staelin, raised several questions about my claims that 4,000 Israelis were thought to have been in the areas of the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on 9-11 - and that of these 4,000 only 3 died in the attacks.

Shure and Staelin also had questions about the Israeli-owned Odigo warning messages that were sent out several hours before the attacks and which were reported to have been precise to the minute. Because I have noticed that these very same questions are cropping up in several places I am posting them here.

McCain Suggests Israel "Go Rogue," Blow Up Iran Negotiations By Starting War

As Iran talks appear to be coming to a close with a successful agreement that would both lead to the lifting of international sanctions and restrictions that would prevent the country from obtaining nuclear weapons, most in the international community are relieved.

Yet Republicans have teamed up with their counterparts in the Israeli political system to do everything they can to obstruct a deal – with tactics such as drafting new sanctions legislation and warning the Iranian leadership that the nuclear agreement will not outlast President Obama.

But this past week Senator John McCain (R-AZ) ratcheted up this sabotage to a new level. During a floor speech he gave on March 24th, the senator suggested that Israel “go rogue” and that if they don't they may not survive the next 22 months of the Obama presidency:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Senator McCain: sir, forgive me, but have you gone absolutely barking mad, to suggest this?

And let me take care of this up front: I am a Christian Pacifist, who believes that good faith, honorable negotiations trump war every time. I would never advocate violence as a way to resolve geopolitical differences.

That having been said, I am certain that you have known for quite some time that Israel is a nuclear power, with nuclear weapons.

Your enabling this country, by making this suggestion, may encourage them to drop a nuke on Tehran.

Since the Israeli government is indifferent to any other human suffering other than that of its Jewish citizens, you may be supporting a genocide of the Iranian people, including some of the oldest practicing Jewish communities in the world.

Now, let us try to think this through, logically, and I promise I will use....small words.

Should Iran be attacked by Israel, there is no way that the US military will not be dragged in, considering the amount of ties the US and Israel have, both politically and militarily. And then, Russia may well come into the fray, on Iran's side.

Because the US military doesn't have the troop strength; the money, or the manufacturing to insure a positive response to a conventional war against Russia, that means that the US will most probably go nuclear, and quickly.

So, in short, sir, what you are most irresponsibly suggesting is a perfect recipe for the beginning of Armageddon, and a pretty total annihilation of life on earth as we know it.

I would very strongly caution you to please be very, very careful about what you wish for; the unintended consequences could be both catastrophic...and irreversible.

Remember when Israel bombed Iraq's nuclear power station, claiming there was a hidden nuclear weapons laboratory in the basement?

Following the 2003 invasion, international experts examined the ruins of the power station, and found no evidence of a weapons facility.

So why are you listening to Israel's claims about Iran?!?

"There can be no denying the Jewish people their legitimate right to live in peace and security,” he said, vowing just days before the Passover holiday that he would stand with Israel “so long as I have a voice and a vote in the United States Senate."

It was the closest the senator came to acknowledging his recent troubles. For weeks, Mr. Menendez, a New Jersey Democrat, has battled to keep his standing in the Senate amid an unfolding investigation into his relationship with a political benefactor, the Florida eye surgeon Salomon Melgen, and whether Mr. Menendez improperly influenced policy on his behalf.

BEX ALERT - NYT ad calls on Obama to act like Churchill, not Chamberlain

Popular New Jersey Orthodox Rabbi Shmuley Boteach took to The New York Times on Friday to criticize President Barack Obama's emerging nuclear deal with Iran, saying it could spell disaster for the Middle East region and the world. Boteach's World Values Network ran a full-page ad in the paper warning that the agreement -- which might be finalized by Tuesday -- could backfire like the ill-fated 1938 Munich Agreement and result in a war.

"Mr. President: Fighting al-Qaida made you like Churchill. Appeasing Iran will make you like Chamberlain," the ad read. It warned that Obama was rushing to a deal that would ignore the brutality of the Iranian regime and allow it to maintain "the potentially catastrophic one-year-weapons-breakout period, which endangers Israel, the Middle East, America and the world."

I think the French are being heavily influenced by the Zionist Jews out of Tel Aviv. They’re making some statements that are incredibly problematic,” said Rodney Martin, a former US congressional staffer.

“And I think the French are the only one that could stall the talks or stall a potential agreement,” said Martin, the chairman of the All Nationalist Association, and a host on the All Nationalist Network, the Association’s internet radio station.

Nuclear Armed and Dangerous Israel Blasts Iran's Peaceful Program

Netanyahu and other Israeli officials suppress information on its longstanding nuclear weapons program - an arsenal with thermonuclear ones and long-range delivery capability able to incinerate entire cities.

On Sunday, Netanyahu railed against Iran's known peaceful nuclear program as a March 31 deadline approaches to reach a preliminary framework deal ahead of a June 30 final one.

BEX Alert - "‘Iran wants to conquer MidEast’: Israeli PM slams prospect of nuclear deal"

The possible signing of a deal on Iran’s controversial nuclear program is “dangerous” as it may be the only thing Tehran lacks to establish control over the whole of the Middle East, Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu says.

Iran’s nuclear talks in Lausanne, Switzerland, which entered the final stage before the March 31 deadline, have confirmed “our concerns and even worse," Netanyahu told Israeli public radio.

According to the recently re-elected right-wing prime minister, the "’Iran-Lausanne-Yemen axis" poses a threat to all of humanity and must be stopped.”

The nuclear deal, combined with the control Tehran already has over governments in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon, could allow Iran to “conquer” the Middle East, Netanyahu declared.

The Gaza fisherman who built his own reef - and was shot dead there by an Israeli gunboat

The underwater rock formations provide the best fishing grounds off Gaza, but they are just beyond the limit set by the Israelis for local boats. Tawfiq Abu Riyala dreamt up an ingenious plan to solve this problem; but it may have ended up costing him his life.

The 32-year-old fisherman had built up his own artificial rock with planks of wood, tyres, and bits of metal, seemingly well within the area in which he and his colleagues are allowed to operate. It was while he was adding to this pile that an Israeli gunboat opened fire, wounding him fatally.

The battle for the Middle East's future begins in Yemen as Saudi Arabia jumps into the abyss

Half the Saudi army are Yemeni descent! No wonder they are surrendering in droves.

Saudi Arabia has jumped into the abyss.
Its air attacks on Yemen are a historic and potentially fatal blow to the Kingdom and to the Middle East.

The real “story” is more important. Perhaps half of the Saudi army is of Yemeni tribal origin. Saudi soldiers are intimately – through their own families – involved in Yemen, and the Yemen revolution is a stab in the guts of the Saudi royal family.

Israel’s Future Vision of the Middle East

Beginning in 1982 with the «Yinon Plan», a proposed Israeli future for a Middle East based on a series of failed Arab states divided into warring smaller fiefdoms, and maturing in the 1990s with Binyamin Netanyahu’s commissioned policy paper called «A Clean Break», which foresaw scrapping the entire peace process with the Palestinians, Netanyahu enters his fourth term as prime minister in command of an Israel that has scrapped a Palestinian state and which has provided assistance to the Salafist/Saudi axis in support of the Islamic State, Al Qaeda, and other radical jihadist groups. Today, as a result of Israeli right-wing/Saudi/Gulf Wahhabist collusion, Iraq, Syria, Libya, and Yemen are failed states and the Middle East is becoming increasingly «balkanized».

BBC’s lame interview with Israel’s defence minister

Analysis of a BBC interview with Israeli Defence Minister Moshe Ya'alon shows how, by failing to challenge the Israeli minister, the public broadcaster actually misinforms the public about the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

BEX Alert!!! - At Germanwings Crash Site - Chabad emissaries attend memorial service

Together with fellow Chabad emissary in Marseille Eliyahou Attia, Taubenblatt traveled to the scene of the crash. “There were hundreds of beds set up for the families of the victims,” he reported, “but they were empty.”

In accordance with Jewish tradition, which places a premium on bringing the remains of Jewish people to a proper burial, the men set out to see if they could be of any assistance.

While access to the actual crash site—which can be reached only by helicopter—is highly restricted, the two were able to speak to a number of officials and rescue workers.

(Note: Why would the Jewish Supremacist Organization Chabad Lubavitch be so interested in getting access to this crash site crime scene???)

Yemen Exploding: Is the Stage Set for the Big War?

This new expansion of the war in Yemen is a bad sign. The situation could easily worsen, involve many countries, and last for a long time to come. The stage for the “Big War” may well be set and we will be hearing a lot more about Yemen and the Arabian Peninsula in the coming months. If this war gets out of hand, I would expect that the benefits of $45 per barrel of oil will soon end. There is no doubt in my mind that the American people – financially and for security reasons – would be better served if we just came home and avoided these nonsensical military interventions that are carried out in behalf of various special interests that control our foreign policy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, it does appear that Dr. Paul is absolutely correct in his assessment of where things are going here.

But the real confirmation will be the voting through of the Charlie Rangel's legislation for reinstatement of the draft in this country. Currently, the legislation is still sitting in committee, and it appears that rather than kill it outright, the House Armed Services Committee is waiting for the "right moment" to pass it.

EU keeps Hamas on ‘terror’ list despite court ruling

The European Union (EU) has kept Hamas on its terrorism blacklist despite a court ruling ordering the 28-member bloc to remove the Palestinian resistance movement from the register.

The measure comes as EU foreign ministers have lodged an appeal against the decision made by the union’s second highest court late last year. The appeal process is expected to take around a year and a half.
