Top 10 Points from Netanyahu’s Speech to Congress Proving He’s Mad

“The remarkable alliance between Israel and the United States has always been above politics and it must always remain above politics.”

Contrary to popular belief Israel and United States are not, at least officially, allies. There is no treaty between the two states detailing any mutual obligations, which stems back to American ties with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia; as it would be much harder for the Saudis to work with the U.S. if they were ‘officially’ tied to Israel. If it so wished, the United States could drop Israel literally overnight. So, it might be crazy to assume an alliance, especially with the presence of the tensions mentioned above.

Former German Lawyer Imprisoned for Holocaust Denial for Second Time

Sylvia Stolz, 51, was convicted for inciting racial hatred when she denied that there was sufficient evidence for the Holocaust in a 2012 speech at an anti-censorship congress in Switzerland. She has been sentenced to 20 months in prison.

In footage that was recorded at the event and which was used during her trial, Stolz made references to the “so-called Holocaust”, denied that the Holocaust had ever been legally defined or proven, and contested whether there was any solid evidence that the Nazis intended to wholly or partially destroy European Jews.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Truth needs no law to support it. Truth is self-evident to all. Truth withstands re-examination. Truth survives questions. Throughout history, from Galileo to Zundel, only lies and liars have resorted to the courts to enforce adherence to dogma.

BEX Alert!!! - "Rush Limbaugh: Netanyahu Everything Obama Is Not"

Radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh contrasted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to Congress Tuesday to President Barack Obama's State of the Union addresses, and concluded that Netanyahu came out on top.

"Benjamin Netanyahu today was everything Barack Obama is not. Everything," Limbaugh said as he opened his program moments after Netanyahu's speech concluded.

He noted that Netanyahu even pointed to a person in the gallery, as presidents have done for years. In Netanyahu's case, it was Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel.

Benjamin Netanyahu's Fantasy World

Netanyahu's speech to Congress was brilliantly deceitful because it played to the fantasies that Israeli propaganda and right wing militarists in the US have been popularizing for the past thirty years.

Pro-Israel lobbyists heap Iran pressure on US Congress

Thousands of members of AIPAC, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, will pack the halls of Congress, a second act of sorts after Netanyahu’s speech in which he too will highlight the need to stop Iran’s nuclear program cold.

They will huddle with senators and representatives, including some skeptical Democrats and fully supportive Republicans, urging them to expand punitive sanctions on Tehran in the midst of negotiations over limiting Iran’s nuclear capacity.

“Iran’s the only thing they’re focusing on,” 27-year-old Cesar Degracia-Morales from Texas told AFP a day before he marches up Capitol Hill.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here is what you do. Print out the Official US Military Enlistment form and have copies with you, and every time you hear someone saying how we must have war with [insert name of this week's targeted nation here], hand them a copy of the form and offer to help them fill it out, then promise that you will personally deliver said form to the nearest enlistment office on your way home. Let's see the real measure of their commitment to war!

Frankly, if I were Obama I would take every one of those Israeli lobbyists and members of Congress listening to them, hand them rifles and parachutes, and drop them into Tehran.

Netanyahu a 'Danger' to Israel, Say 200 Israeli Veterans

n an unprecedented move, 200 veterans of the Israeli security services accused Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday of being a “danger” to Israel.

The new group, called Commanders for Israel’s Security, warned that Netanyahu was doing irreparable harm to the country’s relationship with Washington, just two days before he is due to address the US Congress.

The Israeli prime minister is expected to use the speech to try to undermine negotiations currently taking place between major world powers and Iran. He has claimed that any agreement reached at the talks’ conclusion, later this month, will leave Iran a “nuclear threshold state” hellbent on destroying Israel.

Half a dozen former generals spoke out at a press conference in Tel Aviv on Sunday, urging Netanyahu to cancel the speech before ties with the US deteriorate even further.

WHO IS THE THREAT TO WORLD PEACE? CHRISTIANS, JEWS, OR MUSLIMS (The US, Israel, or Iran)!

Since the 1979 Iranian revolution and the downfall of the US Puppet Ruler the Shah, Iran has been an Islamic state. In that interval of time, 1979 to the present, Iran has not invaded anyone. Not once. In fact Iran has not launched a war of aggression against another nation in 200 years. War is not their nature. People of all religions live in peace in Iran, even Jews, who find life so comfortable in Iran they refused an offer by the government of Israel to emigrate!

Sen. Rand Paul Stands with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu

Sen. Rand Paul today issued the following statement in response to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Joint Meeting of Congress:

"Israel is and has always been America’s friend and ally. I was pleased to hear Prime Minister Netanyahu's speech to Congress today, and join him in calling for peace and standing together for our mutual interests. It is important to work together to prevent a nuclear Iran, and the spread of Radical Islam," said Sen. Paul.

Israel must investigate civilian killings in Gaza war: U.N. envoy

A United Nations envoy called on Israel on Tuesday to investigate the killing of more than 1,500 Palestinian civilians, one third of them children, during the 2014 Gaza war, and to make the findings public.

Makarim Wibisono, a former Indonesian ambassador, issued his first report to the U.N. Human Rights Council since becoming its special rapporteur on human rights in the Palestinian territories last June.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry accused the forum on Monday of being obsessed by allegations of Israeli abuses and said the United States would defend Israel against efforts to isolate it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to US Secretary of State Kerry: serial genocide, coupled with brisk land annexations, are Tel Aviv's way of creating "Eratz Israel" (greater Israel).

You might this concept rather peculiar at your level of personal wealth, but no person is expendable; particularly not Palestinian kids who were slaughtered with wild abandon after the UN Rapporteur for human rights gave the IDF the GPS coordinates of schools and hospitals sheltering the innocent. As reported by WaPo last year:

United Nations officials accused Israel of violating international law after artillery shells slammed into a school overflowing with evacuees Wednesday, an attack that Palestinian and U.N. officials said killed at least 20 people and wounded dozens as they slept. It was one of the worst mass-casualty incidents of the three-week war. The building was the sixth U.N. school in the Gaza Strip to be rocked by explosions during the conflict.

This is NOT the UN "...being obsessed by allegations of Israeli abuses"; this really happened, and the more the US government tries to defend the indefensible, by supporting this serial genocide of Palestinians by the IDF, the more this country looks like a scumbag pariah in the eyes of the world.

I would suggest to you, sir, that thinking Americans do NOT have ADHD when it comes to Palestinian human rights.

Obama right to spurn Netanyahu

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu offered “nothing new” in his diatribe on Tuesday at his third appearance before a joint session of the US Congress, blasting ongoing negotiations in Europe between the so-called P5+1 (the US, Russia, Britain, France, China plus Germany) and Iran over the latter’s alleged nuclear ambitions.

This sharp evaluation was offered by the US President Barack Obama at a press meeting 10 minutes after Netanyahu finished with his loud outrage over the ongoing negotiations with Iran; although he did not offer any alternatives for dealing with Tehran. He, however, still received loud applause and a standing ovation at the Republican-dominated session.

US Officials Dismiss Netanyahu’s ‘Impossible’ Iran Deal

US officials have shrugged off Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s dictated terms for an alternative Iran deal as completely “impossible” to see accepted.

Officials said that not only would Iran never accept the terms laid out by Netanyahu, but that virtually none of the other P5+1 nations would tolerate the Israeli demands either.

The demand for a complete, unconditional dismantlement of Iran’s civilian nuclear infrastructure would never be accepted, and the call to couple it with a round of new sanctions, seemingly just for spite, would all but guarantee Iran would abandon the talks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Israeli elections are just 13 days away, and there are no guarantees that Netanyahu will get any of what he wanted, after the speech to Congress.

There are also no guarantees that Netanyahu won't bomb Iran unilaterally before the election, to show just how "butch" he can be; and he will have to contend with the absolute wrath of the international community which has had it up to HERE with his warmongering and threatening of his neighbors in the Middle East.

But internal polls in Israel suggest that the Israeli voters feel Netanyahu is completely out of touch with domestic problems they face, and want him to focus on domestic issues more.

And if he loses the election, without the power of the office of Prime Minister, is headed toward some massive corruption charges, to which he is going to have to answer.

I have no crystal ball here, but would tend to predict that Netanyahu has created the "perfect storm" for himself, by attempting to sway US foreign policy so blatantly, and ignoring festering domestic problems at home.

Israelis are more concerned about the economy than Iran

Two weeks before the election, voters are defecting for centrist parties focused on the economy, which remains their top priority: 56 percent of Israelis told the Knesset Channel they will vote on socioeconomic issues, compared with 30 percent on Iran’s nuclear program.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The people of Israel will likely see Netanyahu's speech to Congress as the sign of a leader clearly out of touch with the concerns of his own people (a common problem these days). Netanyahu, already damaged by that silly video shot in his servant's quarters, may have just wrecked his re-election chances. That puts Netanyayhu in a real bind because if he loses his status as a head of state, he has prosecutions for corruption waiting for him. I would not be surprised if between now and the Israeli elections Netanyahu were to try to unilaterally bomb Iran's nuclear power station the way Israel did to Iraq in 1981. There is already a report that Netanyahu considered such an attack last year but was warned off of it by Obama.

Mar 04 07:34

Iran and the US have resumed nuclear talks despite Netanyahu's warnings

U.S. President Barack Obama responded within hours saying that Netanyahu had offered no "viable alternatives" to the current course of negotiations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It looks like the administration has dropped the ten year issue in light of the apparent backlash against Netanyahu's speech. Those members of Congress who boycotted the speech are looking really good now, and the GOP should realize that televised "blowjob" of Netanyahu (to use Jon Stewert's description) is going to work against them in 2016.

Iran calls Obama's 10-year nuclear demand 'unacceptable'

Iran rejected on Tuesday as "unacceptable" U.S. President Barack Obama's demand that it freeze sensitive nuclear activities for at least 10 years but said it would continue talks on a deal, Iran's semi-official Fars news agency reported.

Iran laid out the position as the U.S. and Iranian foreign ministers met for a second day of negotiations and as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu delivered a stinging critique of the agreement they are trying to hammer out.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry met a day after Obama told Reuters that Iran must commit to a verifiable halt of at least 10 years on sensitive nuclear work for a landmark atomic deal to be reached.

"Iran will not accept excessive and illogical demands," Zarif was quoted by Fars as saying.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To bring these demands up so late in the negotiations was Obama's way of guaranteeing that the P5+1 negotiations would fail, utterly, even though talks are continuing.

The US government will, as is said in football, "run out the clock" until the end of the month, giving Israel precisely what it wanted; a failed negotiation, with a potential war against Iran in the offing.

Pelosi slams Netanyahu ‘insult’ to US intelligence

US House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has denounced Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to Congress as an "insult" to the United States.

“I was near tears throughout the [Israeli] prime minister’s speech – saddened by the insult to the intelligence of the United States as part of the P5+1 nations, and saddened by the condescension toward our knowledge of the threat posed by Iran and our broader commitment to preventing nuclear proliferation,” Pelosi said in a statement just after the speech.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If Netanyahu pissed off Pelosi, then he really pissed off a lot of people!

Israeli soldiers set attack dogs on teen — ‘Bite him’ — and rightwing politician cheers

Last night Israeli TV cut away from reporting on Netanyahu’s Washington fiasco to cover the leak of an outrageous video of Israeli soldiers inciting their trained “elite” dogs to attack and maul a captured Palestinian teen near an illegal West Bank settlement two months ago. The video appeared on the Facebook page of Michael Ben-Ari, a former member of Knesset of the Kahanist Otzma Yehudit (“Jewish Strength”) party. And it is big news in Israel.

The footage shows a terrified Hamza Abu Hashem, 16, screaming while being mauled by the dogs as two soldiers, reportedly dog handlers from the Oketz unit wearing helmet cameras, record the scene. According to B’tselem, the video was “presumably available to their commanders during the routine debriefing held after such operations.”

Israel destroys thousands of acres of crops in Palestine

According to Ali Freijat, a local resident, as many as 14 Israeli tractors escorted by in excess of 50 Israeli police vehicles destroyed the agricultural products and leveled the land early on Tuesday, Ma’an news agency reported.

He further noted that the Israeli regime forces have been trying to confiscate the land for many years.

Netanyahu's Arsenal of Nukes The Israeli Elephant in the US Congress by BARRY LANDO

snip: Although it has possessed nuclear weapons for more than half a century, Israel still refuses to own up to that fact, and the United States blandly continues to go along with that fiction. When asked in 2009 if he knew of any country in the Middle East with nuclear weapons, Barack Obama avoided the trap by saying only that he did not wish to “speculate”.

The question is, whether you support Netanyahu’s policies or not, how can the U.S. and Israel and their allies block attempt to block Iran from acquiring the bomb, while pretending that Israel doesn’t already have one? How do you justify such a flagrant double standard?

SIGN THIS PETITION - Reverse the concert cancellation of the Gilad Atzmon & The Orient House Ensemble

Jazz was born as an art form for social commitment through improvisation as a way to express freedom.

If a jazz artist is not able to be free in their expression, then the freedom for everyone is at risk. Silencing an artist is complicit in censorship.

We, the undersigned, strongly protest the recent cancellation of the Royal Northern College of Music's concert featuring Gilad Atzmon & The Orient House Ensemble; one of the most successful and critically acclaimed jazz groups in Europe.

It is our understanding that due to pressure from the Zionist Lobby group, the North West Friends of Israel, the concert was cancelled due to a "safety" issue.

Israel’s IDF Supports Syrian Opposition Rebels: Shin Bet Secretly Arrests Golani Druze, Accusing Him of Exposing Rebel-IDF Collaboration

Israel’s Shin Bet rearrested Golani Druze Sedki al-Maket (age 48). Until his release in 2012 (Hebrew), he’d been the longest serving Israeli security prisoner, having spent 27 years detained. News of his arrest is under gag order by Israeli media. The gag is laughable since the arrest has been reported not only by Syrian media, but in a Hebrew Facebook post.

Though Israeli security services haven’t offered any reason for his arrest, it’s likely they’re angered because a week ago he followed Syrian rebels to a meeting inside Israeli-occupied territory. The rebels met with IDF forces who’ve previously been shown to receive logistical and intelligence support from Israel in previous reports here and in Israel and foreign media. Al Maket filmed a video while the meeting was underway, in which he described what he saw and offered it to Syrian TV. It was aired to the entire nation and likely monitored by Israeli security.

Leaked cables show Netanyahu’s Iran bomb claim contradicted by Mossad

Binyamin Netanyahu’s dramatic declaration to world leaders in 2012 that Iran was about a year away from making a nuclear bomb was contradicted by his own secret service, according to a top-secret Mossad document.

It is part of a cache of hundreds of dossiers, files and cables from the world’s major intelligence services – one of the biggest spy leaks in recent times.

Brandishing a cartoon of a bomb with a red line to illustrate his point, the Israeli prime minister warned the UN in New York that Iran would be able to build nuclear weapons the following year and called for action to halt the process.

But in a secret report shared with South Africa a few weeks later, Israel’s intelligence agency concluded that Iran was “not performing the activity necessary to produce weapons”. The report highlights the gulf between the public claims and rhetoric of top Israeli politicians and the assessments of Israel’s military and intelligence establishment.

NETANYAHU’S LONG HISTORY OF CRYING WOLF ABOUT IRAN’S NUCLEAR WEAPONS

In his 1995 book, “Fighting Terrorism,” Netanyahu once again asserted that Iran would have a nuclear weapon in “three to five years,” apparently forgetting about the expiration of his old deadline.

For a considerable time thereafter, Netanyahu switched his focus to hyping the purported nuclear threat posed by another country, Iraq, about which he claimed there was “no question” that it was “advancing towards to the development of nuclear weapons.” Testifying again in front of Congress again in 2002, Netanyahu claimed that Iraq’s nonexistent nuclear program was in fact so advanced that the country was now operating “centrifuges the size of washing machines.”

Needless to say, these claims turned out to be disastrously false. Despite this, Netanyahu, apparently unchastened by the havoc his previous false charges helped create, immediately went back to ringing the alarm bells about Iran.

Hannity Calls Obama ‘Neville Chamberlain’ And Netanyahu ‘Winston Churchill’

“Great American” Sean Hannity didn’t just side with Israel over his own country as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has figuratively spit in President Obama's face. No, Hannity went out of his way to demonize Obama in every possible way he could work into a nearly 10-minute segment.

It’s very touching to see Hannity’s sudden concern for Jews when you consider how he has previously palled around with the most vile of anti-Semites. But when there’s a contest between Hannity’s bigotry and his lust for conservative power – and maybe a new war for other people to shed blood in – well, it’s no contest.

But that doesn’t mean Hannity is above using his bigotry against President Obama. Hannity had at the ready a montage of Obama making such statements as, “The United States is not and will never be at war with Islam” as a blatant suggestion that Obama is too pro-Islam to love Israel.

Noam Chomsky: Opposing Iran Nuclear Deal, Israel’s Goal Isn’t Survival — It’s Regional Dominance

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has arrived in the United States as part of his bid to stop a nuclear deal with Iran during a controversial speech before the U.S. Congress on Tuesday. Dozens of Democrats are threatening to boycott the address, which was arranged by House Speaker John Boehner without consulting the White House. Netanyahu’s visit comes just as Iran and six world powers, including the United States, are set to resume talks in a bid to meet a March 31 deadline. "For both Prime Minister Netanyahu and the hawks in Congress, mostly Republican, the primary goal is to undermine any potential negotiation that might settle whatever issue there is with Iran," says Noam Chomsky, institute professor emeritus at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. "They have a common interest in ensuring there is no regional force that can serve as any kind of deterrent to Israeli and U.S. violence, the major violence in the region.

Netanyahu’s Long History of Crying Wolf About Iran

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is expected to address the U.S. Congress tomorrow about the perils of striking a nuclear deal with Iran. Netanyahu, not generally known for his measured rhetoric, has been vociferous in his public statements about the dangers of such compromise, warning that it will allow Iran to “rush to the bomb” and that it amounts to giving the country “a license” to develop nuclear weapons.

It is worth remembering, however, that Netanyahu has said much of this before. Almost two decades ago, in 1996, Netanyahu addressed a joint session of Congress where he darkly warned, “If Iran were to acquire nuclear weapons, this could presage catastrophic consequences, not only for my country, and not only for the Middle East, but for all mankind,” adding that, “the deadline for attaining this goal is getting extremely close.”

Manchester Music School Surrenders to Zionist Lobby Pressure

I spoke with the RNCM's Marketing Director who told me that the concert was cancelled due to 'safety reasons.' It seems that the venue felt 'unable to guarantee my safety.' Given that I’m now a pretty big boy, this would be somewhat amusing except that the terrible implication is that Zionist’s violence has now made it to Britain.

Menendez tells pro-Israel group he will oppose Iran deal that doesn't roll back nuclear program

"As long as I have an ounce of fight left in me, as long as I have a vote and a say and a chance to protect the interests of Israel, the region, and the national security interests of the United States, Iran will never have a pathway to a weapon," Menendez said, bringing the delegates to their feet. "It will never threaten Israel or its neighbors, and it will never be in a position to start a nuclear arms race in the Middle East. Not on my watch."

Menendez is one of the most outspoken supporters of increasing sanctions if negotiations fail to curb Iran's nuclear program. The issue has pitted Menendez against President Obama, a fellow Democrat.

Netanyahu’s Takeover Bid

Netanyahu’s AIPAC speech, like so many of his speeches in recent years, centered on trying to compare Iran to Nazi Germany, and claiming that not a day goes by he doesn’t worry about Israel being wiped off the map in some way or other.

Top Obama aide Susan Rice, who addressed AIPAC, defended the diplomtic process, saying Netanyahu’s position of opposition to any deal is “not a viable position” from which to hold talks.

The Israel Lobby has been attacking Rice vociferously, with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach running an ad over the weekend in the New York Times accusing her of supporting genocide for criticizing Netanyahu.

FLASHBACK - Netanyahu 2002: Iraq has Centrifuges ‘the size of Washing Machines’ to Produce A-Bomb

Israeli PM Binyamin “Chicken Little” Netanyahu tried to scaremonger about Iraq in 2002, as his contribution to the Anglo-American war of aggression on that country. “there is no question whatsoever,” Netanyahu said, “that Saddam” was seeking nuclear weapons. He said that Israeli intelligence reported to him that Russian scientists and North Korea were on site and actively aiding this phantom nuclear weapons program.

There was no Iraqi nuclear weapons program in 2002; it was dismantled in the early 1990s by United Nations inspectors. There were none of the chemical or biological weapons Netanyahu spoke of. No Russians. No North Koreans. Bupkes.

Netanyahu also warned that Iraq would give nuclear warheads (which it did not have) to “terrorist groups.”

He also argued that no inspections could possibly find “mobile weapons sites” (which are impossible), implying that invasion and occupation was the only course open.

Susan Rice Tells Israel Lobbyists Their Demands Are ‘Unachievable’

On Monday night, White House National Security Adviser Susan Rice made the case for a diplomatic solution to preventing Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon — an argument that rankled many of the 16,000 activists who flooded Washington for the annual confab of the most powerful pro-Israel lobbying organization in the country.

The Catastrophe Bibi Is Courting

So Bibi Netanyahu did not back down, and he’s here now in the United States, and he’s giving the speech Tuesday. In doing so, he has forced a true low point in U.S.-Israel relations. As has been often observed, he’s turning Israel into a partisan issue—up to somewhere around a quarter of congressional Democrats are refusing to attend the speech. That’s a crack, a big one. If he remains prime minister after the March 17 elections, the fissures between Netanyahu’s government and Barack Obama and the Democrats will only widen.

Congressional support for Israel is due for a reconsideration. As Scott McConnell wrote last month in The American Conservative (an anti-neocon magazine), Congress “does not come close to representing the views of the American people” on Israel, either with respect to Iran or the occupation. McConnell cites all the requisite poll numbers that make the case.

Netanyahu tells AIPAC that Iran and its international 'tentacles of terror' threaten the very existence of Israel

The United States and Israel made public protestations of enduring friendship on Monday even as acrimony simmered over plans by the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, to voice his objections to US-led efforts to strike a diplomatic deal with Iran over its nuclear programme in a speech to Congress on Tuesday.

Mr Netanyahu told a meeting of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) that he felt compelled to speak up about the efforts to reach a deal with Iran because the “existence” of Israel is at stake. But he simultaneously denied his intention was to show any disrespect to President Barack Obama.

Netanyahu Goes to Washington: An Act of Desperation By a Political Dinosaur

Today Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin ‘Bibi’ Netanyahu will address a Republican Congress in a brazen attempt to win votes back home by derailing the White House’s ongoing diplomatic negotiations with Iran. How else can you describe it?

There is little point in waiting until after Netanyahu had addresses Congress today, because Bibi will be delivering the exact same, tired old recycled Iran speech that he’s been giving for the better part of the last decade. God forbid, if he’s still in office in 10 years, it’s a sure bet that he’ll be making the same speech then too, claiming that Iran is about the develop a nuclear weapon and that they must be stopped “before it’s too late.” Oh no, not that old chestnut.

In a blinding snow fall, March 1st, scores of people gathered to protest the forthcoming speech on March 3rd of Benjamin Netanyahu to the U.S. Congress.

Speakers protested the occupation and settlement of Palestinian land and the murderous deaths of thousands of Palestinians at the bloodied hands of the Zionists with the aid of American tax dollars. They noted the unity of the Congressnal extreme right and the Zionist policy of pushing the U.S. into war with Iran. The speakers said that Netanyahu does not speak for all American Jews as he pretends. The message to Netanyahu was ‘GET OUT OF THIS COUNTRY’

Netanyahu’s speech and the American Jewish condition

Netanyahu is coming here to tell the Congress to torpedo the efforts of the U.S. president to cut a deal with Iran. He does so because he seems to believe that Iran poses an existential threat to Israel. His actual and implicit messaging links the Iranians to the Holocaust and to Hitler. Whether or not he is working the matter to get another term, or to maintain Israel’s regional hegemony, there can be little question that many Jews share this belief. They say that Iran is determined to destroy Israel and so the charge “Never again” means, we must destroy Iran’s nuclear capability by any means and isolate the society generally. Just as Iraq which attacked Israel was also linked to Hitler by various Israel supporters 12 years ago.

That analogy proved absurd, and the Iranian/Holocaust analogy is also illogical.

What Christians Don’t Know About Israel

In the late 1970s, when I first went to Jerusalem, I was unaware that editors could and would classify "news" depending on who was doing what to whom. On my initial visit to Israel-Palestine, I had interviewed dozens of young Palestinian men. About one in four related stories of torture.

Israeli police had come in the night, dragged them from their beds and placed hoods over their heads. Then in jails the Israelis had kept them in isolation, besieged them with loud, incessant noises, hung them upside down and had sadistically mutilated their genitals. I had not read such stories in the U.S. media. Wasn't it news? Obviously, I naively thought, U.S. editors simply didn't know it was happening.

He is the epitome of everything we reject in Jewish ID politics, Zionism as well as ‘anti’. Bibi publicly imposes himself on America, its people, the American Congress and the Obama administration. Bibi blatantly interferes in American strategic and national security interests. And he gets away with it.

Report: Obama Threatened to Shoot Down IAF Iran Strike

The Bethlehem-based news agency Ma’an has cited a Kuwaiti newspaper report Saturday, that US President Barack Obama thwarted an Israeli military attack against Iran's nuclear facilities in 2014 by threatening to shoot down Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran.

Following Obama's threat, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was reportedly forced to abort the planned Iran attack.

According to Al-Jarida, the Netanyahu government took the decision to strike Iran some time in 2014 soon after Israel had discovered the United States and Iran had been involved in secret talks over Iran’s nuclear program and were about to sign an agreement in that regard behind Israel's back.

The report claimed that an unnamed Israeli minister who has good ties with the US administration revealed the attack plan to Secretary of State John Kerry, and that Obama then threatened to shoot down the Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran.

One sees Palestinians running for their lives, ambulances shot at and tear gassed, medical staff seeking safety behind the mosque, one nurse was shot and wounded (not seen in this video).
One hears the Waqf Al Aqsa Mosque officials pleading with the Israeli Police and Border Police to STOP shooting and killing and telling the children to STOP throwing stones and return to the mosque amidst intense Israeli automatic gunfire for 29 minutes.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is refusing to meet with a group of ardently pro-Israel Democratic senators next week in Washington, but he very much wants to see the faces of Arab ambassadors in the audience during his controversial address to Congress.

Netanyahu's ambassador to the United States, Ron Dermer, has tried, without success, to recruit Arab ambassadors to come to his boss’s speech, e-mailing them personally to plead for their attendance.

Both initially pleaded not guilty to all charges, but De Jonge on Thursday changed his plea to guilty for reason of recklessness.

De Jonge argued he had only meant to cause a “distraction” when he rushed the stage and assaulted Andy Simons, the chairperson of the panel and an organizer with Haringey Justice for Palestinians.

But district judge Julia Newton ruled today that De Jonge had acted with full intent to cause injury.

Yet, as our “60 Minutes” piece showed — using footage actually shot at the time — the Palestinian charges were accurate: There were no Jews praying at the Wall when the rocks started sailing over…

Proposed by the ruling center-left Democratic Party, the motion vowed to “unconditionally support the goal of establishing a Palestinian state living side by side in peace, security and prosperity next to the state of Israel, on the basis of mutual recognition and total assumption of common commitment to ensure citizens to live safely and protected from all violence and acts of terrorism.”

The proposal suggested the two countries should return to the pre-1967 borders, and share Jerusalem as the capital.

Report: Obama threatened to fire on Israeli jets attacking Iran

The decision came, according to al-Jarida, after Israel revealed that the United States and Iran had been involved in secret talks over Iran’s nuclear program and were about to sign an agreement in that regard behind Israel's back.

According to the report, Netanyahu and his commanders agreed after four nights of deliberations to task the Israeli army's chief of staff Beni Gants to prepare a qualitative operation against Iran's nuclear program. In addition, Netanyahu and his ministers decided to do whatever they could do to thwart a possible agreement between Iran and the White House because such an agreement is, allegedly, a threat to Israel's security.

The sources added that Gants and his commanders prepared the requested plan and that Israeli fighter jets trained for several weeks in order to make sure the plans would work successfully. Israeli fighter jets even carried out experimental flights in Iran's airspace after they managed to break through radars.

Note the unguarded remarks of Nicolas Sarkozy picked up by an open mic in 2011: “I cannot stand him.

"The American people and both parties in Congress have always stood with Israel and nothing, and no one, could get in the way," the Republican leader said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to House Speaker Boehner: please resign immediately from your position in the US House of Representatives.

It has become clear that you no longer represent the interests and concerns of the American people, or your "alleged" constituents, but those of a foreign power, Israel.

The interests, needs, and concerns of the American people are not always aligned with those of Tel Aviv, and the issue of a potentially peaceful resolution to the Iranian energy program, being (hopefully) sorted out at the P5+1 negotiations, are one of the most glaring examples of those interests not always being one in the same.

More sanctions against Iran will mark a prelude to war against it; a war in which Israel believes it doesn't have to dirty its hands, but let American military fight, die, and get maimed for life, in the process.

A war against Iran will have horrific consequences for Israel, including a potential invasion by Hezbollah from the North, and many more casualties than their MOD is ready to reveal.

Iran has just signed a military cooperation agreement with Russia; and as you should be well aware, the US military doesn't have the money, the manufacturing, or the troop strength to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia. This is what makes the military option against Iran so scarily dangerous.

And BTW, sir, what makes Netanyahu's testimony to a joint session of Congress next week so dangerously inflammatory, that this will be done in a closed session of Congress, so that the American people do not have the right to hear what the man has to say, and judge for themselves?!?

Had you an actual conscience, you would be asking yourself that question right now; but of course, those in political power in this country have had their conscience surgically removed before running from office!!

BANKSY IN GAZA GOING VIRAL ON THE NET

News travels fast. Yesterday, Banksy published video and photos from a recent trip to Gaza on their Instagram account and set the internet ablaze. The New York Times published a statement from the artist: “I don’t want to take sides. But when you see entire suburban neighborhoods reduced to rubble with no hope of a future — what you’re really looking at is a vast outdoor recruitment center for terrorists. And we should probably address this for all our sakes.”

Israeli Settlers Torch Jerusalem Church, Spray Racist Graffiti on School

Israeli settlers set fire to a church-owned building in Jerusalem overnight, Israeli police said Thursday, hours before settlers spray-painted racist graffiti on the walls of a Palestinian school and two days after settlers torched a mosque in the occupied West Bank.
The vandals torched an annexe of a Greek Orthodox seminary just outside the walls of the Old City and scrawled "graffiti insulting Jesus,” police spokeswoman Luba Samri said, describing it as a "nationalist" attack.

There were no casualties and the fire was put out before causing significant damage, she added.
On Wednesday, a mosque near Bethlehem in the southern West Bank was set alight and anti-Arab slogans in Hebrew sprayed on a nearby wall.

Gaza’s Natural Gas Deposits Could Easily Spark a Full-Fledged Resource War

Back in 1993, when Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA) signed the Oslo Accords that were supposed to end the Israeli occupation of Gaza and the West Bank and create a sovereign state, nobody was thinking much about Gaza’s coastline. As a result, Israel agreed that the newly created PA would fully control its territorial waters, even though the Israeli navy was still patrolling the area. Rumored natural gas deposits there mattered little to anyone, because prices were then so low and supplies so plentiful. No wonder that the Palestinians took their time recruiting British Gas (BG)—a major player in the global natural gas sweepstakes—to find out what was actually there. Only in 2000 did the two parties even sign a modest contract to develop those by-then confirmed fields.

What Happens When An Unstoppable Force Meets An Immovable Object?

"Once there was a man of Ch`u selling shields and spears. In praising his shields he said, 'My shields are so solid that nothing can penetrate them.'

Again, in praising his spears, he said, 'My spears are so sharp that they can penetrate anything.'

In response to his words somebody asked, 'How about using your spears to pierce through your shields?'

To this the man could not give any reply. Indeed, impenetrable shields and absolutely penetrative spears cannot stand together at the same time."
- Han Feizi, Chinese Philosopher (280–233 BC)

"It is our duty to force all mankind to accept the seven Noahide laws, and if not ~ they will be killed."

Kerry warns Congress about Netanyahu’s Iran speech, says Bibi pushed US to attack Iraq

Netanyahu is set to use his next week’s address to a joint session of Congress to condemn a potential nuclear agreement with Iran.

During a House Committee on Foreign Affairs hearing on Wednesday, Kerry warned Congress about the controversial speech.

“The prime minister, as you will recall, was profoundly forward-leaning and outspoken about the importance of invading Iraq under George W. Bush, and we all know what happened with that decision,” Kerry said.

John Kerry says Israel’s Netanyahu Lied About Iran nuclear weapons

US Secretary of State John Kerry has questioned the judgement of Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu over his stance on Iran’s nuclear programme.

Mr Netanyahu has criticised the US and others for “giving up” on trying to stop Iran obtaining nuclear weapons.

The Israeli PM “may not be correct”, Mr Kerry said after attending the latest Iran nuclear talks in Geneva.

US-Israel row deepens as Kerry questions Netanyahu

The row between the White House and Israeli prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu has intensified with US officials saying his outspoken condemnation of efforts to secure an Iranian nuclear deal had injected destructive partisanship into US-Israeli relations.

In an escalation of hostile exchanges between the allies six days before Mr Netanyahu gives a speech to Congress on the threat from Iran, the Israeli leader accused world powers of abandoning a pledge to prevent Tehran from getting a nuclear bomb.

Benjamin Netanyahu’s blinkered view of American politics

When I first wrote about Benjamin Netanyahu’s address to a joint session of Congress opposing a nuclear deal with Iran, I was mostly focusing on the domestic politics of President Obama’s trolling and the GOP’s counter-trolling.

In the five weeks since, the effect of the speech on the Israeli-American relationship has come into stark relief, and the effect could best be described as “toxic.”

Netanyahu goes nuclear… now wait for the fallout

The contents of a secret report by Israel’s Mossad spy agency on Iran’s nuclear programme leaked to the media this week are shocking and predictable in equal measure.

Shocking because the report reveals that the Israeli prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, has spent years trying to convince the international community and Israelis that Tehran is racing towards building a nuclear bomb, when evidence presented by his own spies suggests the opposite.

Aspiring chef shot dead by Israeli soldier

Ma’an News Agency quoted forensic expert Sabri al-Aloul saying that al-Jafari’s autospy showed that the youth bled to death after a live bullet penetrated his left shoulder and struck his lungs before exiting and causing severe bleeding in his arteries and around his spine.

The killing was “similar to an execution” because he was shot from very close range, al-Aloul told Ma’an.

Al-Jafari had been studying hotel management at Talitha Kumi Community College in Beit Jala, another West Bank village. He had hoped to become a chef.

FBI accused Oscar winner Arnon Milchan of selling secret US nuclear tech

Arnon Milchan, the producer of the film 12 Years A Slave, just won an Oscar. However, what is not being reported in Hollywood gossip columns is his alleged life as a secret agent.

Producer Arnon Milchan is a citizen of Israel and has close ties to the leadership of the Israel Labor party. FBI documents also suggest he is a foreign spy who illegally exported US nuclear tech. Arnon Milchan owned a trading company that was allegedly used to smuggle high tech triggering devices for nuclear weapons to Israel. The FBI believes 800 of these triggers were illegally sent to Israel.

The Guardian Surrenders To Zionist Pressure

The following post is taken from the Ultra Zionist CIF Watch. The hawkish Israeli outlet is bragging today about its success in persuading The Guardian to remove The Wandering Who from its online book shop. Needless to say that The Wandering Who was published three years ago, it has been a best seller since then. It was translated into 12 languages and not a single claim referring to any form of hatred has been issued in the UK or anywhere else. The Wandering Who has been endorsed by the most impressive list of scholars and humanists. Seemingly, it doesn't take much for The Guardian to shamelessly surrender to pressure made by supporters of ethnic cleansing Israel.

Israelis Report Saudis Willing to Help Them Attack Iran

Israel’s Channel 2 is claiming Saudi Arabia is close to agreeing to let Israel use their airspace to attack Iran, something Israel has been reported to be seeking for many years.

The latest report says that Saudi Arabia would be willing to let them use their air space, but only if Israel makes some progress on a peace deal with the Palestinians.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Saudis cannot be that stupid. Israel will make concessions to Palestine, use Saudi Arabia to attack Iran (possibly escalating WW3) then Israel will simply take back the concessions made to Palestine when it is all over!

Booking.com offers hotel rooms in Israel’s illegal settlements

I travel frequently to Palestine. Usually, I avoid tourist attractions but last year I decided to make a short trip to the Dead Sea. Searching for a place to stay, I checked the travel website Booking.com.

Immediately, I felt uneasy. Could some of the hotels it had listed be located in Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank?

Rather than making a reservation, I drove to one of these hotels. Although the address given for the Kalia Kibbutz Hotel on Booking.com indicates that it is inside present-day Israel, the truth is quite different. It can be found within Kalia, a settlement in the West Bank that is one of the main shareholders in the cosmetics company Ahava.

Sex, blackmail and theft: leaks detail Israeli spy operations

A section dealing with the operational practices of Israeli field intelligence officers says Mossad puts no pressure on female agents to use sex as a “weapon” but it is expected. It adds: “If sexual blackmail or entrapment is an integral part of the mission, however, Mossad often employs actual prostitutes.”

There is less hesitation among Mossad chiefs about using male agents to become intimate with embassy secretaries, airline stewardesses and others who might provide valuable information.

In a searing rebuke of the Israeli prime minister, US National Security Adviser Susan Rice warned Tuesday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's coming speech in front of a joint session of Congress had cast a partisan pall over the ties between the two close allies and threatened "the fabric of the relationship."

In an interview with Charlie Rose on PBS, Rice faulted both Netanyahu and John Boehner, the Republican speaker of the house who extended the invitation to the prime minister to address Congress on Iran, for creating the "destructive" situation.

Spy cables: Israel airline used as intelligence 'front'

Leaked documents reveal South Africa challenged Mossad over alleged clandestine security operations under El Al cover.

Secret cables obtained by Al Jazeera's Investigative Unit confirm that South Africa's spy agencies concurred with allegations that Israel uses its flag-carrier, El Al Airlines, as cover for its intelligence agencies.

Leaked documents from South Africa's intelligence agency support claims made on a 2009 South African television programme by a former El Al employee-turned-whistleblower.

Despite official Israeli denials, the whistleblower's claims prompted an emergency meeting between senior officials from both sides, as well as a separate note of enquiry from Canada's intelligence agency.
