Israel claims Assad’s forces behind cross-border attack that killed teen

Israel’s Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said on Tuesday that military forces loyal to the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad were behind a cross-border attack that killed an Israeli teenager.

“We received all the analyses and intelligence: it was clear that it was Syrian authorities,” Lieberman told public radio.

“Assad’s forces fired at the Israeli civilian, on the vehicles that had stopped by the border, and they need to pay the price,” he added.

The 13-year-old Arab Israeli, the son of a defence ministry contractor, was killed on the Golan Heights on Sunday when a missile hit the car he was in with his father.

The army said it was a deliberate attack against Israel, but was initially uncertain as to whether regime or opposition forces were behind it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Israeli Foreign Minister Lieberman: why in the name of heaven would al-Assad's military fire into Israel, knowing it was the most completely stupid thing they could possibly do, and knowing how you, particularly, would LOVE an excuse to invade Syria?!?

Sir, the short, rational answer is, they wouldn't.

And how difficult would it be to get one of the hired mercenaries to fire a rocket in order to target the car in which the kid got killed?

Sir, the short, rational answer is, not very.

Netanyahu Can Disinform on Iran Just as Well as Iraq

The turmoil in Iraq has led TV chat shows to trot out an array of hawks, many of whom had been cheerleaders for the 2003 invasion that set up the current crisis. NBC's Meet the Presswas no exception, bringing on former Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney (6/15/14) and then more recently Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (6/22/14), who warned that the wrong moves now could strengthen Iran.

Missing Israeli settlers: Al Jazeera English’s distorted reporting

Gaza – Al Jazeera English’s reporting on the missing Israeli settlers was not naive and it is rather impossible to classify it as part of the rhetoric of neutrality and objective reporting on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

It is simply deliberate coverage that targets the Palestinians’ presence on their own land and their just cause, while giving leverage to the “perseverance” of the Israeli society living in a jungle of “barbaric” Palestinians. Al Jazeera English correspondent Jane Ferguson started her report a few days ago by focusing on the feelings of Israelis and specifically their shock following the [alleged] capture of three Israelis about 10 days ago.

Israel strikes 9 military targets in Syria

It was not clear who exactly fired the anti-tank missile that hit the Israeli border from an area contested by the Syrian army and the rebels.

The strikes on targets in Golan Heights were carried out shortly after midnight, Haaretz reports citing an IDF official, who called it a direct response to Sunday’s deadly incident when an anti-tank projectile fired from Syrian territory struck near the border fence on the Israeli occupied Golan Heights.

Cui Bono ??

Christopher Bollyn - "Who is Eddy Shalev?"

Who is Eddy Guigui Shalev and how did an Israeli pilot become Hani Hanjour’s flight instructor?

What I found most intriguing is the fact that Hani Hanjour, the Saudi “terrorist” who supposedly flew American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon, had “successfully conducted a challenging certification flight” with an Israeli flight instructor named “Eddie Shalev” at an airport in Gaithersburg, Maryland, three weeks before 9-11.

The key point about Hani Hanjour flying with Eddie (or Eddy) Shalev is that Shalev told the 9-11 Commission that Hanjour was a good pilot who he thought "may have had training from a military pilot" when everyone else who ever met Hanjour said he did not have adequate flying skills to even rent a small plane.

Israel threatens Syria with more attacks

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has threatened that Israel would carry out more assaults against Syria, following recent airstrikes and shelling against targets inside the Arab country.

Netanyahu said on Monday that Israel would respond with even tougher force if Syria retaliates.

“Last night we operated with great force against Syrian targets that acted against us, and if needed we will use additional force,” he told members of his extremist Likud Party. “We will continue to forcefully hurt anyone who attacks us or tries to attack us.”

Netanyahu resurrects controversial terrorist house demolition policy

Israel will demolish a house belonging to a convicted terrorist, renewing a controversial policy for the first time since 2005. The owner, Ziad Awad, has been indicted for killing a Jewish policeman earlier this year.

“I gave the directive to destroy the home of the terrorist, a Hamas man, as part of the general effort to combat Hamas,” said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who noted that the decision would have to be approved by the Supreme Court.

According to human rights group B’Tselem, some 666 houses of Palestinian activists convicted for carrying out attacks on Israeli civilians and soldiers were demolished as punishment between 2001 and 2005, during the Second Intifada. An Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) committee eventually concluded that the policy was counter-productive, and incited retribution.

UNSC turns blind eye on Israeli atrocities

The United Nations Security Council has once again turned a blind eye on Israeli atrocities in the occupied Palestinian territories.

The 15-member council failed on Monday to agree on a statement that would deplore the deaths of Palestinians in recent Israeli raids.

In a closed-door council meeting, Russian Ambassador to the UN Vitaly Churkin proposed a press statement after listening to a Palestinian appeal. But, the US envoy rejected any reference to Israel.

According to a diplomatic source, US Ambassador Samantha Power said that any language directly criticizing Israel would be a red line for Washington.

Exposing Israel’s ‘pinkwashing’

Pinkwashing is the word activists use to describe Israel’s branding of itself as the gay oasis of the Middle East. It’s a government-supported public relations strategy, they say, designed to help us all forget about Israel’s occupation of Palestine.

These activists are part of a growing movement of anti-pinkwashers, committed to exposing Israel’s pro-gay messaging as cynical propaganda, while at the same time bringing more attention to what many have labeled as Israeli apartheid.

ISRAEL CONTINUES TO RESORT TO MURDER, MASS TERROR AND LIES

As the latest Israeli rampage of murder and terror in the West Bank continues unabated, hopes for locating three young Jewish settlers Israel says were kidnapped by suspected Hamas militants are steadily vanishing.

Tens of thousands of Israeli troops are taking part in one of the largest operations in Israel’s history. So, far troops have thoroughly searched more than a thousand Palestinian homes in the Hebron region alone, but to no avail.

Soldiers have also been searching wells, abandoned caves and other possible hideouts in the large Hebron district.

Splitting up Iraq….. It’s all for Israel

The only reason to dissolve Iraq, is Israel. Israel does not want a unified Iraq. Israel does not want an Iraq that can stand on its own two feet. Israel wants to make sure that Iraq never remerges as a regional power. And there’s only one way to achieve that goal, that is, to follow Yinon’s prescription of “breaking up Iraq …along ethnic/religious lines …so, three (or more) states will exist around the three major cities: Basra, Baghdad and Mosul.”

BACK TO BAGHDAD!

One would think the neoconservatives who engineered the Iraq War – the worst disaster for the United States since Vietnam – would never emerge from hiding.

Not so. With dazzling chutzpah, former Vice President Dick Cheney, the real power in the Bush administration, just claimed President Barack Obama was responsible for the growing mess in Iraq.

Obama is a wimp allowing America’s foes to run rampant across the Mideast and Eastern Europe, growled Cheney. He wants US troops to reoccupy Iraq, and maybe Syria. Cheney’s blustering was applauded by another over-the-hill dotard, Republican party leader Sen. John McCain.

Out from the Washington woodwork crept a swarm of neoconservatives. They joined Cheney in blasting Obama over Iraq and calling for more wars against the Muslim world.

Further, my military sources have been telling me for 15 months that war in the Middle East, and possibly World War III, will commence in Syria for a variety of reasons. The world is beginning to witness the unfolding of this prediction. Historians may look back upon Israel’s recent attack upon nine military targets inside of Syria as a the Archduke moment for World War III.

Pirates with Nukes

Entirely dispelled are any lingering doubts about the disdain Israel has for international law. Before going any further, just reflect upon all the apologist responses to the global condemnation of the Mediterranean Massacre. All the toadies that carry the water for the Zionist despotism are predictable and deceitful. Based on a foundation of sand their mantra ignores the facts and rests on false axioms.

NeoCon Glenn Beck is a devoted cheerleader of Zionism. Making things worse, he is also a Dispensationalist. Departing from the solid research on condemning the failed philosophy of Progressivism, Beck demeans his audience with a false history of Palestine and the nature of the Israeli state. His religious doctrine regarding Israel makes him an apostate. Duping well intentions, but ill-informed viewers into accepting the crimes of Israel, as the will of God, is why he is a Trojan horse.

New 9-11 Documentary: The Anatomy of a Great Deception

This docu-thriller follows one man's search for truth while coping with the findings of his own 9/11 investigation.

The film is a fast-paced, “docu-thriller,” following one man's peek behind the curtain of the official 9/11 story. As his investigation progresses he struggles to cope with the findings of his own research and the impact it has on his life and those around him.

In the film, businessman-turned-filmmaker, David Hooper takes the audience down the "rabbit hole" to get a deeper look at the evidence. He presents a compelling case for why, even after a decade, the story of 9/11 remains relevant.

Israeli air raids kill 10 Syrian troops in Golan Heights

At least 10 Syrian soldiers have been killed and several others injured after Israeli jets attacked Syrian army positions in the Golan Heights.

The so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a group based in the UK, has confirmed the deadly attacks.

The Israeli aircraft targeted the Syrian army positions, while its tanks hit government targets in the Golan Heights region.

Tel Aviv says the assaults were in retaliation for the death of an Israeli settler in the occupied Golan Heights on Sunday.

Israeli security forces have said the death was caused by a mortar shell fired from Syria.

Jewish Settlers Attack Funeral Of Slain Palestinian In Ramallah

Sunday evening a number of fanatic Israeli settlers attacked the funeral of a Palestinian, killed by the Israeli army in al-Biereh, near the central West Bank city of Ramallah, wounding one Palestinian.

The Palestinians were participating in the funeral procession of resident Mohammad at-Tareefi, 30, in Jabal at-Tawil neighborhood, when settlers of the Psagot illegitimate settlement opened fire on them, wounding one resident.

Several minutes later, dozens of soldiers arrived at the scene, and fired live ammunition at the residents, and several homes, in al-Biereh.

The Israeli military attack pushed dozens of residents to advance towards Psagot settlements, and hurl stones at it.

Ramallah raid on RT’s office: Why the IDF story doesn't add up

When asked for an explanation, IDF officials said the raid was not directly targeting RT, but “the lessor of the offices” Palmedia, which “cooperates with Hamas.”

“The aim of the operation conducted in the small hours of Saturday, was a Palestinian company Palmedia. The reason is that it provides services to Al-Aqsa TV, which has propagandist and inflammatory content. That’s why the search was performed there,” an IDF representative told RIA Novosti news agency.

The first inconsistency with the real situation is that Palmedia does not provide any service to Al-Aqsa. In fact, the Palestinian Hamas-linked TV channel employs the services of Transmedia and is based in another building.

Presbyterian General Assembly Biennial Meeting: My Message on Israel and Palestine

As the Presbyterian General Assembly gathers for its biennial meeting, I reach out in prayer and solidarity that the Assembly will make a strong witness for reconciliation, justice and peace. I am aware that the Assembly will consider eight overtures on the confounding and intractable conflict in Israel and Palestine, however I am especially urging the Assembly to adopt the overture naming Israel as an apartheid state through its domestic policies and maintenance of the occupation, and the overture calling for divestment of certain companies that contribute to the occupation of the Palestinian people. Both are worthy of adoption, by speaking truth in the first instance, and owning up to the Church's complicity in maintaining the occupation through its investments in the second.

Jewish Defense League Extreme Prejudice Towards an American Citizen

In 1992, the American Jewish Congress (AJC) put on a press conference promoting fetal tissue research and giving it a religious sanction. Tom mentioned that in an article in BioEngineering News in May 1992 entitled "Invasion of the Body Snatchers."

He showed that the procedure was a crime against humanity as defined in the Nuremberg Conventions ("Doctrine of Informed Consent") and predicted it was immoral and would lead to organ stealing. This is not very different in its criminality to the described in State of Israel Forced the Sterilization of Ethiopian Women.

Tom found himself under financial attack by individuals identifying themselves as Jewish, who were acting on the basis that he and the publication BioEngineering News was anti-Semitic. An AJC lawyer offered to "fix things" with the Jewish community if Tom would retract the article.

Palestinian kidnapped by Israeli forces in Awarta

At approximately 2:00 AM on the 15th June, Israeli soldiers conducted a night raid in the village of Awarta near Nablus, which was one of a series of raids and closures carried out by Israeli forces, following the disappearance of three Israeli settler youth close to al-Khalil (Hebron). Palestinian witnesses state that over 50 Israeli solders surrounded the village.

During the operation around 20 Israeli military personnel forced entry to, and stormed the home of Sameer Abu Shayb. Palestinian residents state that the soldiers were aggressive and had their faces covered. Sameer was then handcuffed and interrogated at his home over the phone by a commanding officer, for approximately 15 minutes. Sameer was not accused of any offence, but was then taken outside, blindfolded, and abducted by Israel forces.

This is the sixth time that Sameer has been imprisoned in recent years, totalling approximately 6 months.

Israeli soldiers killed a Palestinian 14-year-old in the occupied West Bank Friday as they pressed a crackdown on the Islamist Hamas movement in their search for three missing teenagers.

Troops also wounded two Palestinians in a refugee camp just outside Jerusalem as clashes flared in the face of the massive military operation in which they have detained 330 Palestinians over the past week, medical sources said.

Israel accuses Hamas of last week’s abduction of the two 16-year-olds and a 19-year-old from a hitch-hiking stop in the West Bank, an allegation the Islamist group has dismissed as “stupid”.

But Israel has seized on the opportunity to drive a wedge between Hamas and the Palestinian leadership, who formed a merged administration for the West Bank and Gaza Strip just this month for the first time in seven years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The IDF kills innocent Palestinians, and visits collective punishment upon them, all the time; it is standard operating procedure for them.

I would not be too surprised if Israeli agents abducted these kids, and is holding them, as another "cause celebre" to blame on the Palestinians.

But Hamas and Fatah have to stand fast in their moves toward a unity government; any dissolution now, and the Palestine they seek will not even have the square footage of Lichtenstein!

ISIL backed by US, Israel, KSA

MEET THE PLAYERS
For eight years, Dick Cheney and his Israeli/Saudi friends wielded the world’s largest military force, America’s two million men, $1.5 trillion dollar per year juggernaut.

Intelligence sources now tell us that this same trio, hiding behind the ISIL, is waging a corporate war across the Middle East, a surrogate war backed by corporate billions.

Military and intelligence analysts conclude that ISIL operations continue to enjoy full intelligence and logistical support, port and rail facilities through Aqaba, Jordan, safe transit for militants through Israel. All other claimed sources of supply, particularly those through Turkey are a fabrication, deception and cover.

Washington Relaunches its Iraq Partition Project

The sudden collapse of the Iraqi state is presented by the international press as a result of the attack of the terrorist group ISIL. But who can believe that a powerful state, armed and organized by Washington, could collapse in less than a week in the wake of a jihadist group formally independent of any state? Besides, who can believe that those who support ISIL in Syria sincerely condemn its actions in Iraq? Thierry Meyssan reveals what’s in the cards.

How many Israelis live in America, anyway?

NEW YORK – It’s not easy to find accurate data about the number of Israelis living in the United States. The Israeli government and the Jewish Agency are in no hurry to give out such information, which might be due to the simple fact that no one has precise numbers. Be that as it may, the numbers being bandied about these days range from 200,000 to 1 million.

Christopher Bollyn: "Who is Behind the Chaos in Iraq?"

So, after decades of disastrous policies that have utterly wrecked the nation of Iraq, why does the media still solicit advice about the crisis in Iraq from war hawks like Sen. John McCain, Sen. Lindsey Graham, and Douglas Feith?

The answer is quite simple: The big media outlets in the United States give time and space to war hawks like John McCain because he is a leading advocate of the Zionist war agenda. Like McCain, the big media outlets are also controlled by Zionists who support the war agenda. They are simply using people like McCain, Graham, and Feith to promote it.

The real question is what is the Zionist war agenda?

Ed Miliband - A Shameless Zionist In Our Midst

As the Brits were expressing their disapproval of ‘Red Ed’ and his clumsy politics, the Labour leader found the time to socialise with the Jewish Lobby. The following is Ed Miliband’s speech to LFI (Labour Friends Of Israel), the same Zionist Lobby group that funded Blair’s government as it drove Britain into a criminal war in Iraq.

In his speech, Ed Miliband affirms his deep Zionist affiliation. The verdict on his reign is clear, Miliband should never have been the leader of a major British political party. He would have been better suited for a position as a local Rabbi or a part time job as an Israeli consular.

ALL OF PALESTINE HAS BEEN KIDNAPPED

All of Palestinian society is a kidnapped society. Like many of the Israelis who performed “significant service” in the army, many of the readers of this column, or their children, entered the home of a Palestinian family in the middle of the night by surprise, with violence, and simply took away the father, brother or uncle, with determination and insensitivity. That is kidnapping, and it happens every day. And what about their administrative detainees?

ISRAELI TERROR CAMPAIGN ~~ TWO VIEWS FROM PALESTINE

Palestinians in the West Bank are showing spectacular steadfastness and resilience in the face of an unprecedented rampage of terror and vandalism by the Israeli occupation army.

The rampage, which began five days ago when three army-age settlers went missing and were presumed kidnapped by suspected Palestinian militants, is assuming unmistakable terrorist proportions.

This terror includes destroying homes by missiles, storming homes and blowing up gates and outer doors, vandalizing property, beating up innocent people and grossly mistreating children and women.

According to the Palestinian Prisoner Club, a body that monitors Israeli treatment of Palestinian detainees, Israeli troops have so far raided and thoroughly vandalized 750 homes in the Hebron region alone.

US wants Iraqi Prime Minister Maliki to ‘go’

A number of US officials have, either directly or indirectly, said that Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki should “go” as militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) are committing atrocious acts against Iraqis.

“The Maliki government, candidly, has got to go if you want any reconciliation,” said the chairwoman of the US Senate Intelligence Committee, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-California), during a congressional hearing on Wednesday.

White House spokesman Jay Carney also claimed on Wednesday that the current crisis in Iraq is the result of Maliki’s policies. “There's no question that not enough has been done by the government, including the prime minister, to govern inclusively, and that that has contributed to the situation and the crisis that we have today in Iraq.”

Netanyahu should look at his own record

Standing in front of a map of what both no doubt hope will one day be Greater Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu and Tony Blair have today given a practical demonstration of chutzpah. Translated roughly as “audacity” (but could also mean “insolence”), the two men with blood on their hands tried to convince the world that the lives of three illegal Jewish settlers – “children,” said the Israeli PM – are worth more than the lives of over 1,300 Palestinian children killed by the Israelis since September 2000 at an average rate of 3 murders per day. This is entirely consistent with the view expressed by at least one extremist Rabbi, Yaacov Perrin, at the funeral of Baruch Goldstein, the terrorist settler who murdered 29 Palestinians while they prayed in Hebron’s Ibrahimi Mosque in 1984: “Even one million Arabs,” claimed Perrin, “are not worth a Jewish fingernail.”

Netanyahu: Operation to find abducted teens is complex, may take time

The search for the three kidnapped yeshiva students entered its fourth day on Monday. The Israeli military on Sunday called up a limited number of reserves and is now focusing most of its efforts to find Eyal Yifrah, 19, from Elad, Gil-Ad Shaer, 16, from Talmon, and Naftali Frenkel, 16, from Nof Ayalon in the Hebron area.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu confirmed on Sunday that Hamas is behind the abduction. Netanyahu asserted that he holds the Palestinian Authority responsible for the teens' fate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Could this latest Israeli false-flag be any more obvious? Why would the new Palestinian Unity Government do something that stupid? It doesn't make any sense. Such a kidnapping only harms the public support the Palestinians need, which is a perfect motive for Israel to fake this kidnapping and blame it on Hamas and the PA as part of Netanyahu's agenda to destabilize and discredit the new unity government.

The area where the "kidnappings" occurred was under complete IDF control at the time, and somehow one of the "victims" managed to make a phone call to confirm they were kidnapped, but without disclosing where they were. One wonders in this age of total surveillance how it is that Israel could not trace where the call came from, thereby justifying wide-spread attacks into Gaza and the West Bank!

Israel has a long history of false-flags, from the Lavon affair, to the USS Liberty, to the Raid on Entebbe, to the USS Cole, right up to 9-11 itself. This is just more of the same.

ANGUISH ON BOTH SIDES OF THE WALL IN ISRAEL/PALESTINE

The Obama administration on Sunday joined Israel in implicating the militant group Hamas in connection with the kidnapping of three Israeli teens and called the move a “despicable terrorist act.”

The teens, including one who holds US citizenship, disappeared late Thursday apparently while hitchhiking in the country’s West Bank region.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is an obvious Israeli false-flag as part of their campaign to destabilize and delegitimize the Palestinian unity government. Hamas has no reason to do such a stupid thing as kidnap three kids right now. Such an act can only damage their public support, which is ample reason for Israel to grab those kids and blame Hamas for it. The "Kidnapping" happened in an area under the total control of the IDF. And the area is closed to hitchhiking as well. PLus, one of the "kidnapped" kids manages to get to a phone long enough to confirm that they are the victims of a deliberate kidnapping, but fails to report where they are and hangs up before the call can be traced, thereby justifying wide-range attacks and arrests all across Gaza and the West Bank by Israel!

Kerry and Obama are crying crocodile tears over the one American in the group, which stands in stark contrast to the US Government's reactions to Rachel Corrie and Furgan Dogan, two Americans murdered openly by Israel.

Kerry points at Hamas in Israel kidnappings that include teen with US citizenship

The Obama administration on Sunday joined Israel in implicating the militant group Hamas in connection with the kidnapping of three Israeli teens and called the move a “despicable terrorist act.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Last August, John Kerry assured the world that Syria's President Assad had gassed his own Alawite supporters using sarin gas, virtually in front of the UN chemical weapons inspectors, on the very day they arrived in Syria.

Then someone asked Kerry why Assad would do such a stupid thing, and Kerry went silent. Because motive was the missing piece that betrayed the whole lie. There was no reason for Assad to do something that provocative and insane, and eventually the rest of the claims made in August unraveled and were revealed as more war propaganda, not unlike the whopper about Saddam's nuclear weapons.

John Kerry, proving that marrying a ketchup fortune doesn't necessarily make you any smarter, has made the same mistake again. Kerry is echoing Netanyahu's claim that Hamas kidnapped these three boys. But why would Hamas do such a stupid and provocative thing right now, when they are trying to win world recognition of the new Palestinian unity government.

Netanyahu, on the other had, desperate to discredit and derail the new unity government, has plenty of motive for yet another Israeli false-flag attack, kidnapping the boys and blaming Hamas. And Israel's history of full of such dirty tricks, from the Lavon affair to the attack on the USS Liberty to 9-11 itself.

To uncover when the government is lying to you, always look for what should be there and isn't. In the case of last August, what was missing was a motive for Assad to gas his own people. What is missing today is a motive for Hamas to carry out an act that will damage the public support it needs to move their unity government forward.

Think, people, THINK! It makes the propagandists very nervous!

And would someone ask John Kerry how he feels about US citizens Rachel Corrie and Furkan Dogan who were openly murdered by Israel?

APPEAL FOR REASON AND SANITY

Three Israeli teenagers seem to have been kidnapped Thursday evening. The government was very quick to declare this the work of a ‘terrorist organisation’. They further stated that it was a direct result of the recent cooperation between Hamas and the Palestinian Authority. It was obviously motivated by forces opposed to the reconciliation efforts …. as far as the Israeli government is concerned, it is working right into their own plans of disrupting whatever possible unity can come out of said reconciliation.

Thousands of armed Israeli troops are at the moment roaming through Palestinian towns and villages in the occupied West Bank. There is a danger that scores of innocent Palestinians will be killed by these soldiers.

We appeal to whoever is responsible for this madness to release the boys so they can return safely to their families. The concept of ‘an eye for an eye’ will only lead to the blindness of many an innocent victim.

Israel descriptor sparks boycott threat

ISLAMIC nations furious over the Abbott government's policy shift on Israeli settlements have warned they could boycott Australian farm exports if the stance is not reversed.

The government last week ruled out using the term “occupied” to describe Israeli settlements in East Jerusalem, deeming the term pejorative and unhelpful to the peace process in the Middle East. That has prompted an outcry from Islamic countries, who have written to Foreign Minister Julie Bishop demanding an explanation why this controversial decision was made without consultation. Palestinian senior diplomat in Australia described the move as “unprecedented” and warned Australia had isolated itself on the world stage by backing “illegal” settlements.

“This statement is not helpful at all to promote the peace process,” Palestinian Delegation Ambassador Izzat Abdulhadi said.

“I think it's an invitation to Israel to continue its settlement activity.”

Fearing jihadi attack on Israeli planes, Egypt sends troops to border

The Egyptian military has deployed a large military force near the border crossing with Israel at Taba in order to prevent rocket and missile attacks on Israel, and especially on Israeli civilian airplanes

Egyptian sources estimate the force is about the size of a battalion, or several hundred men. The move was coordinated with Israel.

Egypt is concerned that jihadist operatives in the Sinai Peninsula who are affiliated with al-Qaeda may try to down an Israeli civilian aircraft flying near the border during its approach for landing in the resort town of Eilat.

Iran questions nuclear deal deadline as talks 'hit wall'

Iran, after talks with senior U.S. officials, questioned whether a July deadline for a nuclear deal with world powers will be met, fueling doubts on the outcome as France spoke out, saying talks on curbing Tehran's uranium enrichment had "hit a wall".

Iran's talks with six major powers on curbing its nuclear program in exchange for an end to Western sanctions could be extended for six months if no deal is reached by a July 20 deadline agreed by all parties, a senior Iranian official said.

While an extension is possible under the terms of the talks, experts believe both Iran and the international powers may face domestic political pressures to argue for better terms during this extra time period, further complicating negotiations.

The wild card in all of this is Israel, and if Israel believes it can make a calculated military multiple-strike against Iran's nuclear facilities with little repercussions, it will do so, if these talks do not reach an agreement by 20 July.

I would, however, like to politely remind the adults in the room in the Israeli government, that Russian officials have stated very openly that should Iran be attacked, Russia will come to its aid militarily; just one of those pesky little realities which the Israeli government may want to take into account when contemplating such a strike!!

DEMOLISHED DREAMS ~~ THREE HOUSES ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WALL

The short documentary ‘3 Houses’ was filmed in Ras Khamis and Ras Shahada, Jerusalem neighborhoods that were cut off from the rest of the city when the Separation Barrier was built in 2002. Since then, these neighborhoods and the tens of thousands of people who live there have been utterly neglected by the Jerusalem municipality. In 2013, the desperate situation in this no-man’s-land was even further exacerbated when the municipality announced its intent to demolish the homes of thousands of residents.

Somehow the media reports neglected to mention that Cantor is a dual citizen with an Israeli passport. Maybe that is why Pro-Israeli groups provided over a million dollars in support of his campaigns. Maybe the voters were wondering who he represented, them or Israel?

Hopefully this is the start of a major trend. After all, a friend of Israel is no friend of America!

Rivlin victory could spell the end for Netanyahu

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's worst nightmare became reality on Tuesday when his hated faction rival Reuven (Rubi) Rivlin was elected to be Israel's 10th president. Netanyahu pulled out all the stops to avoid a Rivlin presidency, including attempting to do away with the position all together and offering the job to Nobel Prize winner Elie Wiesel who doesn't even have Israeli citizenship.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yet another reason to disregard the Nobel Prize. Elie Wiesel's fame and Nobrel Prize rests on his claim to have survived the Nazi Death Camp (reg trademark Israel) at Buchenwald. However as it turns out, Wiesel's story was simply one of a flood of holocaust hoax memoirs and the photo of him at Buchenwald was shown to be a total fake.

Israel’s president-elect Reuven Rivlin in his own words

“I whole-heartedly believe that the land of Israel is ours in its entirety.”

“The communities in Judea and Samaria [Ed. referring to West Bank settlements] do not threaten our existence, they guarantee our existence.”

“Today, almost 20 years after Oslo, we can see clearly that the idea of separating the [Israeli and Palestinian] nations failed.”

“For some reason the settlement enterprise is being accused of being an obstacle to peace. Personally, I explain at each possible forum that the obstacle to peace is the objection by the Arabs to it and the fact that they do not want us here”.

Leaked report: Israel acknowledges Jews in fact Khazars; Secret plan for reverse migration to Ukraine

Only yesterday came news that Syrian rebels plan to give Israel the Golan Heights in exchange for creation of a no-fly zone against the Assad regime. In an even bolder move, it is now revealed, Israel will withdraw its settlers from communities beyond the settlement blocs—and relocate them at least temporarily to Ukraine. Ukraine made this arrangement on the basis of historic ties and in exchange for desperately needed military assistance against Russia. This surprising turn of events had an even more surprising origin: genetics, a field in which Israeli scholars have long excelled.

The American Legions Leadership Allegiance to Israel

Immediately following Israel’s attack on America’s premier spy ship as it navigated in International waters on 8 June 1967, the American Legion Membership passed a strong resolution on the incident.

Resolution #508 condemned Israeli actions as an “apparently deliberate attack.”

Resolution #508 called on the U.S. government to “conduct a complete and thorough investigation of this incident” and to demand full payment from the Israeli government for compensation to the families, crew, and to the United States for the damage to the ship.
“After the resolution was passed, there were complaints from the Jewish War Veterans of America and some Jewish members of the American Legion, and the resolution was allowed to die without action. The American Legion member who proposed the resolution stated later that the lack of follow through was due to pressure by pro-Israel organizations.”

ISLAM MUST RESPOND TO AUSTRALIA’S NEWEST POLICIES REGARDING THE STATUS OF JERUSALEM

The Arab world, if indeed there is still an entity as such, and Muslims around the world must respond in a meaningful manner to the latest affront coming from Australia.
*
This week, the Australian Attorney-General George Brandis said in a speech that his country ought to stop viewing East Jerusalem as an occupied city.

Brandis is notorious for his racist views and xenophobia. Some of his critics have already described him as “Nazi-minded.” The Australian press recently quoted him as saying that “people have the right to be bigots,” which made racist and anti-immigration groups in Australia ecstatic.

Unfortunately, much of the man’s vindictive chauvinism is reserved for Arabs and Muslims. His remarks about E. Jerusalem encapsulate a morbid mind-set not unlike that of the people who wanted to create the Third Reich.

Mere Existence of Palestine Deemed a “Threatening Racial Slur” by the [parent corporation of the] Houston Dynamo Organization

Apparently, soccer fans are very nationalistic. It is not uncommon for soccer fans to bring their national flag to a game where their national team is not even playing. In this spirit, a Palestinian-American woman named Buthayna Hammad brought her Palestinian flag to last Sunday’s Honduras vs Israel match at BBVA Compass Stadium. Fifteen minutes into the game, Nathan Buchanan, head of security at the stadium, removed her from her seat, surrounded her with four Houston Police officers and three additional stadium security personnel, and prohibited her from returning to her seat until she surrendered the “racist” flag. What makes the flag “racist?”

ENDING THE OCCUPATION, HOUSE BY HOUSE, VILLAGE BY VILLAGE

This video shows villagers in Silwad, east of Ramallah in the occupied West Bank, expelling a group of Israeli soldiers from a home they occupied.

In the video, a group of community members – women and men – knock on the door. A distressed woman answers and says the soldiers had come into the house and confiscated the family’s telephones and keys.

The villagers then search the house and find the heavily armed occupation soldiers in a bedroom.

They confront the soldiers, who try to give orders to the villagers, but instead the villagers order the soldiers out of the house. At one point, when a women pushes a soldier to get him out of the house, the soldier turns around and appears to threaten her with his weapon.

The New McCarthyism

Once again vast sums of money are being spent on a war, this time a hot one and getting hotter. Once again parties with a vested interest are out to smear and destroy anyone who dares ask if the wars are worth the sacrifice of our young people (not to mention the money), indeed if there really is any point at all to the wars aside from justifying the flow of money to defense contractors.

But the Soviet Union has gone out of business. The word "communist" doesn't carry the same psychological impact it used to, so the war hawk smear squad has come up with a new one, "Anti-Semite." Like "Communist", "Anti-Semite" is used to ruin the lives of people who have not actually done anything wrong other than to challenge the war profiteers. It is a new word for an old trick, and I am amazed that they are still playing the same old game, but I guess the FBI can always find some dumb-assed idiot to fall for it and do their dirty work of wrecking a career for them.

Unity government may not be perfect, but it is good news for Palestine

Very few Palestinians expect the new unity government in Ramallah, composed of technocrats unaffiliated with any political faction, to liberate Palestine from the shackles of Zionism or defeat Israel and its guardian-ally, the United States. We don’t live in a fantasy and we all know the facts on the ground too well.

But the unity government, whose formation has been made possible thanks to last month’s reconciliation deal between Hamas, the Islamic liberation movement, and Fatah, the mainstream PLO faction, is ostensibly at least a welcome development for all Palestinians and their enduring just cause.

Jews demand more state funding, "Shoah" indoctrination & "hate speech" legislation

It should be perfectly clear to anyone paying attention to current affairs and politics that the organized Jewish community is the most cohesive and effective organized political lobbying force in Western politics today. In the United States, for example, the organized Jewish community and its various political lobbies - AIPAC, the American Jewish Congress, the Anti-Defamation League, etc. - essentially control the United States government, the electoral process, and both major political parties, dictating or heavily influencing and shaping both domestic and foreign policy. A similar situation prevails in Europe and the United Kingdom, perhaps only to a less blatant extent.

Israeli WMD Budget Revealed

Haaretz is covering the war of words (or hand-to-hand combat) between the Israeli defense and treasury ministries over its budget. There is a constant battle in which the defense ministry attempts to guilt and intimidate the political class into increasing the budget. They do so with shrill warnings about having to cancel military drills and training and being unready to fight the next war–all because of bean counter politicians who won’t properly fund the nation’s security.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, US Congress, it appears that you are collectively suffering from CMD (collective memory disorder).

Do you folks, who allegedly represent We the People, remember a little law you passed, called the Symington Amendment?

This law stipulates that if a country has nuclear weapons, and refuses to become a signatory to the NNPT, and allow their weapons to be inspected, that the US government could offer no financial or military aid to that country.

Well, it is pretty in your face, with the Haaretz article, that:

1. Israel has nuclear weapons.
2. Unlike Iran, Israel refuses to become a signatory to the NNPT
3. Unlike Iran, Israel refuses to allow its nuclear sites to be inspected.

So, ladies and gentlemen of Congress, can you please explain to the American people, with a straight face, as to why you are breaking this law by providing military and financial aid to Israel, when the Symington Amendment says specifically you cannot?!?!?

The U.S. Has Been Speaking To Hamas Through Back Channels For More Than Six Months

United States officials have been holding secret back-channel talks with Hamas over the last six months to discuss their role in the newly formed unity government, according to two senior diplomatic sources with direct knowledge of the talks.

The meetings were held between U.S. intermediaries and Hamas’ leadership, which lives outside the Gaza Strip in third-party countries ranging from Egypt to Qatar and Jordan. Topics included the ceasefire agreement with Israel and the recently formed unity government between Hamas and Fatah.

During the talks, Hamas gave assurances that allowed the U.S. to support the unity government, despite heavy pressure by the Israeli government for them to condemn it, the diplomatic officials — one American and one Palestinian — said. They said those assurances including a commitment to maintaining a ceasefire with Israel.

Israel Deploys 3 Nuclear-Armed Subs Off Iran Coast; Iran Warns Of Forceful Response

The Sunday Times reports that Israel is to deploy three submarines equipped with nuclear cruise missiles in the Persian Gulf that are meant to act as a deterrent, gather intelligence and potentially to land Mossad agents. Iran is not happy, warning that "anyone who wishes to do an evil act in the Persian Gulf will receive a forceful response from us."

According to the Times report, one submarine had been sent over Israeli fears that ballistic missiles developed by Iran, and in the possession of Syria and Hezbollah, could be used to hit strategic sites within Israel, such as air bases and missile launchers.

Dolphin, Tekuma, and Leviathan, all German-made Dolphin class submarines of the 7th navy Flotilla, have been reported as frequenting the Gulf in the past, however, according to the Sunday Times report, this new deployment is meant to ensure a permanent naval presence near the Iranian coastline.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The leadership if Iran is many things, but foolish is not one of them.

Why would they, logically, pull a stunt like attacking Israel in such a manner, when they know for a certainty that such an action would have the US attack Iran in such a way to turn the country into a sea of molten green glass?

The short answer is, THEY WOULDN'T.

But right now, just as the P5+1 talks appear to be making traction ahead of the 20 July deadline for a new understanding with Iran on its nuclear energy program, it appears that the government of Israel is doing everything they can think of to sabotage these talks.

And, oh, BTW, Congress, Mr. President, the Pentagon, and the State Department: there is one little thing to which this revelation should tip you off collectively.

Notice that these subs are characterized s having nuclear cruise missiles.

I would like to politely remind you of the Symington Amendment, which forbids the US from sending any aid, military or financial, to any country which has nuclear weapons, but refuses to become a signatory to the NNPT, and have their nuclear sites inspected.

Israel has nuclear weapons and refuses to become a signatory to the NNPT. All US aid to Israel, now that this revelation has come out, is totally illegal.

WELL?!?

The American people are waiting for an answer, and for the US government to abide by its own laws!!!

WEBMASTER ADDITION: With this announcement, the world now knows for a fact that Israel does indeed have nuclear weapons, and has had them all along.

Remember Obama's first press conference as President? Helen Thomas asked him bluntly which nations in the Middle East have nuclear weapons. Obama refused to answer and instead danced away with generalities about proliferation.



Helen Thomas was then kicked out of the WH Press Corps. So, Obama knew that Israel had nuclear weapons, indeed the US may have supplied those nuclear-tipped cruise missiles to Israel!

July deadline for Iran nuclear deal appears in jeopardy: envoys

It is increasingly unlikely that six world powers and Iran will meet their July 20 deadline to negotiate a long-term deal for Tehran to curb its nuclear program in return for an end to economic sanctions, diplomats and analysts say.

In theory, an extension to the high-stakes talks should not be a problem if all sides want it. But President Barack Obama would need to secure the consent of Congress at a time of fraught relations between his administration and lawmakers.

The latest round of talks in Vienna last month ran into difficulties when it became clear that the number of centrifuge enrichment machines Iran wanted to maintain was well beyond what would be acceptable to the West. That disagreement, envoys said, can be measured in tens of thousands of centrifuges.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

AIPAC will strong-arm the US Congress into not consenting to an extension of these talks, as Israel wants the US to attack Iran to "neutralize it", and create regime change.

However, I would like to politely point out that Russia, already singularly displeased with the US/European engineered putsch in Ukraine, may very well decide to draw its own line in the sand, by coming to Iran's aid militarily.

I would also like to politely point out that the US military does not have the troop strength, the money, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war with Russia, if it sides with Iran; and that is what makes the military scenario so scarily dangerous here.

The 50 Most Influential Jews – Not a single humanist on the list

Yesterday The Jerusalem Post published its “list of the world’s 50 most influential Jews,” those who in one way or another have “worked tirelessly for the improvement of humanity and, in doing so, have made their mark on history.”

The truth is that the list does not exactly fit the Post’s description of it. Not a single humanist is listed; instead we find a catalogue of Jewish war criminals, financiers, gambling tycoons, ethnic cleanser advocates, a Holocaust fraudster, a few Rabbis with minimal importance even within the Jewish world and one Ethiopian entertainer.

I guess that for those who are still desperate to find a Jewish humanist, Masada 2000’s S.H.I.T List is the place to find them.

Netanyahu Looks to Gitmo to Justify Force-Feeding of Palestinian Hunger Strikers

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is aggressively pushing a bill that would green-light the force-feeding of Palestinian prisoners on hunger strike, citing the U.S. military's routine use of this practice against detainees at the Guantánamo Bay (Image: Addameer) offhsore prison.

Netanyahu told the security cabinet on Sunday to move more quickly on discussions of the bill, Haaretz reports.

The Israel National Bioethics Council andIsraeli Medical Association are vocally opposing the law, and the IMA vowed on Thursday to prohibit Israeli physicians from participating in force-feeding, which it likened to torture, according to reportingby Israel's Channel 2 News.

In response, Netanyahu declared that he would find doctors willing to carry out the controversial practice and mentioned the U.S.'s routine practice of force-feeding hunger striking Guantánamo Bay inmates.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What the prisoners at Gitmo and those Palestinians being held in indefinite detention have in common is, primarily, as follows: they have not been allowed anything remotely resembling due process, to either convict or acquit them.

Netanyahu doesn't want these prisoners to die, because of the potential of creating massive Palestinian unrest through allowing this.

Also, these men probably won't be released, ever, because their bodies, like the bodies of Gitmo inmates, may well bear witness to horrific torture to get them to "confess" to whatever officials wanted them to say in order to justify their detention.

The American officials don't really care if these prisoners die, but feel compelled to be seen as "doing something" to prevent them from dying, so NG tube feeding is what they have chosen.

This is punishment, pure and simple, for their wanting to die because they will not be released, ever, even those who have not been convicted of doing anything wrong.

I would suggest that if Netanyahu is so "gung-ho" on this procedure, that he should have it done to himself...with cameras rolling.

But the process is nasty, and not without consequences; ask any Northern Irish person who was on a hunger strike in jail during "the troubles".

Israel threatens more sanctions against Palestinians

Israel threatened Monday to impose new sanctions against the West Bank-based Palestinian Authority after a new unity government was sworn in under a deal with Gaza rulers Hamas.

A security cabinet meeting called to discuss the new Palestinian government decided “to authorise the prime minister (Benjamin Netanyahu) to impose additional sanctions on the Palestinian Authority,” Netanyahu’s office said, without elaborating.

It added that Israel would hold the PA entirely responsible for any attacks on the Jewish state.

Abbas has pledged the new administration will abide by the principles laid down by the Middle East peace Quartet — to recognise Israel, reject violence and abide by all existing agreements.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks as though Netanyahu is having another one of his anti-Palestinian hissy fits.

Look for a false flag, coming soon, which Israel will blame on the PA, as the excuse for more deadly attacks against Palestinians.

Seriously expect, if this happens, that many non-combatants, including women and children, will be gunned down in cold blood.

And remember what the motto of the IDF is regarding pregnant Palestinian women: "One shot, two kills".

"Smash and Grab Palestine" Policy Announced by Government

ISRAEL WARNS THE WORLD AGAINST PALESTINIAN UNITY

Despite the fact that the two defacto Presidents of Israel and Palestine head off to the Vatican together early next week, the government of Israel is doing everything in its power to sabotage the new Unity Government scheduled to be sworn in by Hamas and the Palestinian Authority today ...

Israeli authorities deny UK visit for nuclear whistleblower

A decade after his release from prison for leaking information on Israel’s nuclear weapon program, Mordechai Vanunu has been denied permission to attend a human rights conference in London.

Vanunu, who was released in 2004 after spending 18 years in prison for leaking details of Israel’s nuclear program to British media, had planned to visit the UK capital for three days to attend a conference sponsored by Amnesty International and address the British parliament, Haaretz, the Israeli daily reported on Monday.

Israeli Interior Minister Gideon Sa’ar and Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein, however, refused to approve the trip. Vanunu petitioned the High Court of Justice to reverse the decision, but judging by previous appeals that does not seem likely.

Since leaving prison in June 2004, the nuclear technician has been forbidden to leave the country or speak with foreigners without permission from the Shin Bet security service.

Netanyahu says world governments shouldn't recognize Palestinian government

World governments should not rush to approve the new Palestinian government, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Sunday after the Palestinians accused Israel of looking to punish them over a unity deal.

"I call on all responsible elements within the international community not to hurry to recognise the Palestinian government that Hamas is part of, and which relies on Hamas," Netanyahu told ministers at the weekly cabinet meeting, saying it would "strengthen terror".

Renowned Israeli Economist Predicts Economic Catastrophe for Israel

As with everything concerning this subject, there is a propaganda “line” that Israel-advocates sell the world. First, there was the pioneer nation that made the desert bloom, turning it into a modern society. Lately, it’s become the “start-up nation.” This myth sells an Israel full of technical geniuses coding their hearts out to bring innovation to the world. It suggests an Israel in tune with the democratic and entrepreneurial spirit of the rest of the world. Even a nation on the cutting edge of technological discovery. After all, if Warren Buffett invested $4-billion in one of Israel’s most profitable companies, doesn’t that prove the case?

POWER AND PUNISHMENT REPLACES HEBREW AS ISRAEL’S OFFICIAL LANGUAGE

At the same time, the entire approach to Israel must be changed. As long as it does not pay the price of the occupation and its citizens go unpunished, they will have no reason to end it, or even to deal with it. The occupation is deep inside the Israeli closet. There is no one to out it, the overwhelming majority want it to remain inside. For this reason, only punitive measures will remind us of its existence. Yes, I mean boycotts and sanctions, which are greatly preferable to bloodshed.

This is the truth, even if it’s bitter. America and Europe have kowtowed to Israel enough. Unfortunately, to no effect. From now on, the world must speak a different language and perhaps it will be understood. After all, Israel has proved, more than once, that the language of power and punishment is its main language.

US Congressmen vow to work to keep Jerusalem undivided

Congressmen from the bipartisan Congressional Israel Allies Caucus vowed this week to work to keep Jerusalem united as Israel's undivided capital.

Congressman Doug Lamborn (R-CO) pledged "with no waivers and no caveats" to do everything in his power to ensure Jerusalem remains undivided.

"The United States was the first nation to recognize Israel’s sovereignty a mere 11 minutes after the new state was formed in 1948," Congressman Trent Franks (R-AZ) said on Thursday.

"Just as the United States has assisted the Jewish people in restoring their ancient state, we should lead the way in recognizing Jerusalem for what it is: the undivided eternal capital of Israel," he continued.

Congressman Eliot Engel (D-NY) stressed that support for Israel is one of the few issues both Democrats and Republicans can agree on.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to these members of Congress, allegedly representing your constituents: you have been collectively impotent at improving the lot of the American people; the economy here is in the toilet; the infrastructure is completely broken; Veterans die awaiting care at the VA, and are sleeping in our streets; and these illegal and immoral wars have broken this country, fiscally and morally.

So what do you do, under these circumstances, where you have been an epic fail?!?

Go to Israel, and pledge your undying support for a completely unified and Israeli Jerusalem.

So how would you suggest the Israeli government approach the Palestinians living there?

Create their own "final solution" to Israel's "Palestinian Problem"?!?

Because if the Israeli government thought they could get away with something like this, in the court of world opinion, they would do it in a heartbeat.

9/11 & Israeli Apartheid, The Kiss of death for World Zionism

South African Apartheid was exposed and dispensed with after many years of struggle and major divestitures of corporate and institutional investments from anything related to South Africa.

The world literally turned against the Government of South Africa and its Apartheid, eventually causing its collapse.

The same thing is now happening to Israel over the Apartheid for the Palestinians it now holds captive in the world’s largest open air prison camp.
