Palestinians seek to become party to ICC and have it investigate Israeli war crimes

The possibility of a war crimes investigation into the conduct of Israeli forces in Gaza, until recently unthinkable, has grown after the Palestinians said this week they wanted to become a party to the International Criminal Court.

University blocks appointment of professor critical of Israeli crimes in Gaza

The University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana has reportedly blocked the fall appointment of Palestinian-American professor Steven Salaita for his recent comments made on Twitter criticizing Israel’s war crimes in Gaza.

Prior to his accepting the associate professor position at the University of Illinois this year in the department of American Indian studies, Salaita left a position in the English department at Virginia Tech.

We Have Had Enough of Elie Wiesel and His Ilk

The ad’s headline reads: “Jews rejected child sacrifice 3,500 years ago. Now it’s Hamas’ turn.” Wiesel’s statement is a blatant lie and the London Times knew it.

Jews have never stopped sacrificing their children. The Hannibal Protocol is an IDF directive that orders soldiers to take ‘necessary measures’ to prevent their comrades from being captured by enemy forces. ‘Necessary measures’ include risking the life of the Israeli soldier and anyone who happens to be in his vicinity. Similarly, the Kastner Affair shows that at the peak of the Shoah, Ben Gurion and the Zionist establishment were willing to sacrifice many Jewish lives on the altar of the Zionist goal.

Israel Gives Jews a Bad Name

When I was growing up in a Jewish community in New York in the late fifties, there was a predictable collective response to news events that expressed itself in one question:

Washington’s strategic alliance gives carte blanche to Israel

The State of Israel’s ability to flout international law at will is measured in the fact it has ignored or violated 32 UN Security Council resolutions since 1982, more than any other UN member, all as a result of US vetoes.

Compare this to Iraq, which under Saddam [was falsely accused of violating] two UN Security Council resolutions, with the result that two wars were waged against it, along with a 13-year long period of sanctions, and the implementation of a no-fly zone in the north and south of the country.

US Leaders Aid and Abet Israeli War Crimes, Genocide & Crimes Against Humanity

By sending vast amounts of military aid to Israel, members of the US Congress, President George W. Bush, President Barack Obama and Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel have aided and abetted the commission of war crimes, genocide and crimes against humanity by Israeli officials and commanders in Gaza. An individual can be convicted of a war crime, genocide or a crime against humanity [PDF] in the International Criminal Court (ICC) if he or she "aids, abets or otherwise assists" in the commission or attempted commission of the crime, "including providing the means for its commission."

IDF Hamas Human Shield Manual a Sloppy Forgery - The Evidence

The Israeli Defense Force just got caught red handed manufacturing fake evidence to prop up their Gaza narrative

On August 4, 2014 the IDF released what they claimed to be scans of a captured Hamas combat manual which explains the benefits of human shields (Captured Hamas Combat Manual Explains Benefits of Human Shields). This juicy story got quite a few people excited, and within 2 days their blog post had over 81,000 likes on Facebook. It turns out though, that the documents that they uploaded were forgeries, and sloppy forgeries at that. The work was so shoddy that you don't even have to be an expert to see the mistake. Let's take a a look.

THE OAKLAND PALESTINE SOLIDARITY MURAL

resented by Art Forces, the Estria Foundation and NorCal Friends of Sabeel, the Oakland Palestine Solidarity Mural is a monumental work of public art located in Uptown Oakland on 26th Street between Telegraph and Broadway. The mural pays homage to the history of Bay Area public art and expresses solidarity with Palestinians as bombs continue to fall on Gaza.

The Oakland Palestine Solidarity Mural adopts the image of the tree as a central motif and global visual signifier to link seemingly disparate issues and distant locations. Spanning 157 feet and reaching 22 feet high, the mural is comprised of nine separate panels, where each artist or team of artists has painted his or her own interpretation of a tree to address social and political issues.

Psychopathology of the Zionist Mind

In explaining the Israeli compulsion to pulverize (the Zionist element at least), whether into submission or into smithereens, the Palestinian people of Gaza, a moot point, one can combine Marx and Freud by way of explanation, as did Herbert Marcuse in Eros and Civilization, on a related problem: the instinctual realm of profound layers of darkness, in which consciousness of evil on the oppressors’ part must be obliterated (for Marcuse, the repression of Thanatos as it continues to do its ugly work), in Israel’s case, its destruction of the Palestinian memory (memory as historical awareness, legitimation of group-existence, including pride and sense of place, claims to survival and growth) through mounting the disproportionate use of force, a species of overkill, metaphorically, the Israeli military-psychological bulldozer.

Israeli politicians promote a Final Solution for Gaza

It is more of an imperative than ever for us to support the Boycott, Divestments and Sanctions (BDS) global movement.

Given the choke-hold pro-Israel lobbying organizations like AIPAC have on US elected officials, it is plausible Boxer’s maneuvering was orchestrated to suppress the reach of an open and honest conversation about Israeli criminality. READ MORE

Not killing Gazans ‘moral mistake’: Netanyahu

He added that the attacks on UN schools were not only appropriate, but that it would have “been a moral mistake” to not attack those schools, because it would’ve given Hamas de facto permission to launch attacks from those schools.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Netanyahu just confessed to a war crime, first by admitting the UN schools were directly targeted, and second by admitting that HAMAS had not in fact already been using the schools for launching attacks.

PM: We're Fighting for the West, Not Just for Us

In interviews with international media Thursday, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu pressed Israel's case on defending citizens from Hamas' terror attacks. By fighting Hamas, the leading edge of Islamist terrorism, Israel is defending not only itself, but the entire Western world.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, Netanyahu's excuse for the war has gone from "They killed three teenagers", to "They shot rockets at us after we bombed them; how dare they do that", to "This is a war against Islam! (You should go kill them for us)."

I wonder if Israel will try to pull another 9-11 to get us angry at their enemies again (like they did in the Lavon affair and the attack on the USS Liberty)

BBC agrees to air Gaza charity appeal after getting Israel’s permission

The BBC announced Thursday morning that it would broadcast an emergency charity appeal for Gaza Friday — but only after it was reassured that it won’t face censure from the Israeli government for doing so.

This is in stark contrast to 2009, when another Israeli massacre in Gaza was drawing to an end. Then, the BBC, along with Sky, refused to air an appeal from the same body – the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) — even though other major television networks, including Channel 4, did so.

The BBC’s then director general, Mark Thompson, said at the time that broadcasting the DEC appeal would breach impartiality guidelines, as funds were being raised for Gaza but not Israel.

“They killed the man who taught me the meaning of devotion to the community and to the Palestinian cause,” Mufida said, gesturing towards the staircase. “He inspired me to take part in protests and solidarity events for prisoners.”

Despite claims that anti-Semitism is on the rise in the UK, it's Israel's critics who need protection

The horrors of Gaza continue to unfold after the guns fall silent, with thousands of displaced victims scoured the ruins of their bombed homes for whatever meagre salvage they can find, wondering what tomorrow may bring.

Around the world, Jewish communities are now trying to regain the sympathy they forfeited by blindly supporting the devastating Israeli offensive. The traditional way of doing this is to announce a rise in anti-Semitism and whipping up fears of “another holocaust”.

The latest harbinger of “holocaust” was the decision by the Tricycle Theatre in North London not to host this year’s Jewish Film Festival unless the festival gave up funding from the Israeli Embassy. The theatre cited its principle of political impartially and offered to replace the lost fund, but the festival refused. There followed a media storm claiming – you guessed it – “outrageous anti-Semitism”.

Zionism Has Nothing to do With Judaism’ – Holocaust Survivor Dr. Hajo Meyer

[In my view] this ethical tradition is absolutely contrary to everything which is at the basis of Zionism. Because Zionism was created… at the end of the 19th Century, and in that era it was commonplace to be colonialist, to be racist, to be super-nationalist, to adore the nation-state–so the idea of France for the French, Germany for the Germanics, and then some state for the Jews. This all formed the basis for Zionism.

Zionism and Judaism are contrary to each other. Because Judaism is universal and humane, and Zionism is exactly the opposite. It is very narrow, very nationalistic, racist, colonialist, and all this. There is no “National Judaism.” There is Zionism and there is Judaism, and they are completely different.

On Tuesday, July 29, Efrati announced on Facebook that he received information from sources within the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) revealing what he claims to be the real reason for the Shuja'iyya massacre which occurred nine days prior on July 20: namely that civilians were targeted and killed by Israeli soldiers as punishment for the death of soldiers in their units.

‘NYT’ is furiously rewriting history of Gaza conflict

An important journalistic pattern is beginning right now that must be countered by people who care about human rights: The New York Times is trying to rewrite the history of the Gaza conflict to treat it as a cycle of violence set off by Hamas in June by allegedly orchestrating the teen kidnappings on the West Bank– rather than as a war begun by Israel against Hamas. The Times whites out Israel’s interest: to destroy the unity government between Hamas and Fatah that was announced in May, a government the U.S. was prepared to work with, thereby defying Israel.

And as for the seven-year siege of Gaza that has put 1.8 million people in an open-air prison, the Times has nothing to say.

FLASHBACK - Judea Declares War on Germany


Click for larger image

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Posted at reader request: Today Israel is screaming about how "unfair" the Boycott, Divest, and Sanctions movement is to "poor suffering Israel" (reg Trademark Tel Aviv). but history shows that the same people have never hesitated to use boycotts against others, as this newspaper from 1933 shows.

Following their defeat in WW1, Germany had been forced to accept a privately-owned central bank under the Treaty of Versailles. This privately-owned bank looted the German people and eventually led to the runaway inflation of the Wiemar Republic. When Hitler came to power he kicked out the private central bankers and returned control of the currency to the government. This triggered an economic boom in Germany which would later be described as the "German Miracle" and lead to TIME Magazine making Hitler their Man of the Year for the amazing economic changes he had brought to Germany.

Those changes, of course, were a direct threat to the private central banks, both because citizens in other countries wondered why they could not have the same system of government-issued currency that was working so well for Germany (especially here in the United States, which had been started a with government-issued currency), and because nations enslaved to private central banks cannot economically compete with nations not so encumbered and plundered.

So, the cartel of private central bankers organized a global boycott against the new German monetary system almost the moment it was born, to ruin Germany and drive it back into the clutches of the private central bankers. It was this economic war that set the stage for the emergence of WW2, while the financial predations of the Rothschilds bankers became the foundation of the German peoples' animosity towards Jews.

As a side note, the article gives the total Jewish population of Germany as just over half a million, quite a far cry from the claimed six million supposedly exterminated by the Nazis.

Suggestion to Rotterdam city council: Don't allow Israeli Jihadists into the city.

ROTTERDAM - Rotterdam must do everything to keep "Israeli Jihadists" out of the city, NIDA and SP argue in written questions to the college.

The SP and NIDA also believe that the organizations that support this, such as Sar-El and the CIDI should be boycotted by the municipality.
According to the group's chairmen Leo de Kleijn (SP) and Nourdin El Ouali (NIDA) these 'Jihadists' are committing warcrimes by helping the IDF to massacre the inhabitants of Gaza.

The Root Cause of the Never-Ending Conflict in Palestine; and How to Fix It

Zionism is a conceptual ideology in which it is assumed that part or all of the land of Palestine belongs to "the Jews." Of course, we should all be free to assume whatever we want, but where such assumptions lead to organized conquests, expulsions, land dispossession or the kind of repetitive episodes of brutal violence we have just seen in Gaza, that is quite another matter.

Many words have been devoted to the question of how to attain "peace" between the Zionist colonists and the people who were living in Palestine prior to the Zionists' arrival. This article is not about that kind of peace. Defining grounds on which to make peace within the status quo is not my concern here. What I have in mind is something far more fundamental: the return of Palestine, through political inducements, to the people we have come to call the Palestinians. It behooves those who seek an end to violence and a just peace to at least remain open to my argument, as follows:

Palestinians returning home find Israeli troops left faeces and venomous graffiti

When Ahmed Owedat returned to his home 18 days after Israeli soldiers took it over in the middle of the night, he was greeted with an overpowering stench.

He picked through the wreckage of his possessions thrown from upstairs windows to find that the departing troops had left a number of messages. One came from piles of faeces on his tiled floors and in wastepaper baskets, and a plastic water bottle filled with urine.

If that was not clear enough, the words "Fuck Hamas" had been carved into a concrete wall in the staircase. "Burn Gaza down" and "Good Arab = dead Arab" were engraved on a coffee table. The star of David was drawn in blue in a bedroom.

War-Bambi Awarded Palestinian Lands

A Confiscation Order was issued by the IDF against lands of the Palestinian village Ein Yabrud on August 7, 2014. The land will be used for an access road to lands that even Israel Police recognizes as robbed by Jewish settlers.

The confiscation order benefits Amona, an outpost of the settlement Ofra, near Ramallah. Outposts are considered illegitimate by the government of Israel, while settlements are recognized and generously supported by Zion. *

Eventually, outposts and settlement hope to grow and melt into a single entity. The Hebrew word for outpost, ma'ahaz, means "holder," referring to a temporary structure aimed at keeping ownership. Ariel and Modi'in-Maccabim-Re'ut are two city-sized settlements created in such a way.

During the process, they aim to enclose Palestinian lands and then deny entrance to the owners. No farming the land is a popular excuse for the later expropriation of the land from Palestinians.

The national chorus is trying to fake a victory. In the absence of many achievements, they’re also trying to fake the fall of Hamas.

That’s our national chorus, the chorus of fakers.

Bennett: IDF Ready to Strike Back Immediately

Economics Minister Naftali Bennett said that he was fully behind Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu when he says that Israel would respond with full force if Hamas resumed its attacks on Israel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Can we dispense with this idea that HAMAS is attacking Israel? When those three Israeli teenagers were kidnapped and killed (by abductors who spoke Hebrew on the recording of the cell phone call) in the West Bank, Netanyahu blamed HAMAS in Gaza, even though Israeli police in the West Bank had already concluded that HAMAS had nothing to do with that crime, and even the Israeli media admits that the two suspects named by the Israeli government are not part of HAMAS, but of a group known for disobeying HAMAS and trying to cause trouble for them.

But Netanyahu declared HAMAS, the legally elected government of Gaza, responsible for a crime in the West Bank, and launched bombing raids on July 7th into Gaza using the very latest high-tech weapons provided by the US Government and paid for by the US taxpayers.

To put Israel's actions into perspective, let us recall that over the July 4th weekend, 8 people were killed in Chicago. Using Netanyahu's logic, the Democratic party should be blamed and all of Illinois bombed and invaded!

The Palestinians, who have been attacked without provocation, fight back with their home-made rockets, which so far have mostly knocked a few roof tiles loose.

But to Israel's supporters, we should all forget that Israel attacked Gaza without a valid reason, and view Palestine's attempts to defend themselves as the crime, so that Israel can go on pounding the Palestinians with their superior weapons.

I want to point something out. The Israelis sit in their tanks, or the drone operations centers, or fly high above Gaza in their US-supplied warplanes, dropping the latest in US-supplied high tech lethal munitions, and imagine themselves the heroes they read about in the Torah. The Israelis, clearly unafraid of HAMAS rockets, line the hills overlooking Gaza and cheer the carnage, much as the Romans at the Colosseum cheered as the Christians were thrown to the lions. The Palestinians huddle in their giant open-air prison, without an army, a navy, or an air force, and fight back with home-made rockets made out of plumbing supplies.

Not since Thermopylae has the world seen such courage in the face of overwhelming odds. The Palestinians have balls the US and Israel can only dream of, and the world will remember their courage against the tyrants, and the lies by the corporate media's presstitutes and whorespondents trying to protect Israel's aggression!

Thousands demonstrate in Gaza, demand new strikes; Israel says it is poised to respond as needed; Israeli delegation returning to Cairo with input on truce talks; Obama slams Hamas but calls for end to blockade

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel set this up by offering to extend the cease-fire "under the current terms" which means Israel gets to go on starving the Gazans, keeping the borders shut, denying the Gazans use of their own seaport and fishing waters, and of course, letting Israel grab the natural gas deposits off of the Gaza coast. This was something HAMAS could never agree to, which is what Israel wanted so they could posture they were trying to make peace and it is all HAMAS' fault for not living their lives the way Netanyahu wants them to.

It is a shame these two hurricanes bearing down on us here in Hawaii are not aimed at Netanyahu instead!

Israeli Army Summarily Executed Fleeing Civilians In Southern Gaza

Even before a short-lived ceasefire allowed journalists to enter the besieged southern Gaza strip town of Khuzaa on 1 August, desperate reports of an Israeli massacre — including execution-style shootings — had emerged from survivors who had escaped to nearby Khan Younis.

Once journalists were able to enter the choked-off village, they found slain bodies and the stench of decay. Journalist Jesse Rosenfeld described one scene, among several, that appeared to be the site of a summary execution

Gaza conflict: 360-degree panorama of flattened town of Khuza'a, Gaza

Devastation wrought by an earlier bombardment of Khuza'a, a small farming town less than half-a-mile from Gaza's south-eastern border with Israel, is plain to see.

A furious assault that residents say began on July 20 levelled much of Khuza'a - leaving whole streets flattened, once-grand mosque domes reduced to ground level and the local council's "Bon Voyage Khusa'a" sign lying crumpled in bits like an unfortunate joke at the town entrance.

One man recalled counting 360 shell attacks in a single hour.

Stars Face Hollywood Backlash in War of Words Over Israel

This story first appeared in the Aug. 15 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine.

When the latest battle in Gaza finally is over, as someday it will be, hard feelings could linger in the corner offices of Hollywood toward the stars who have voiced anti-Israel sentiments. But will the artists who criticize Israel military strikes -- particularly married Spaniards Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz, who accused the country of "genocide" in a widely circulated July 25 letter -- suffer career backlash in a town whose power brokers tend to be strong supporters of Israel?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Career backlash" is what these folks are going to suffer, unfortunately, most likely in perpetuity, for having had the temerity to tell the truth about what has gone on in Israel this last month.

Trust me: we know.

The phone calls don't get returned, or if they do, they are full of vile insults and epithets. "The word" goes out that these people should be considered permanently unemployable, and no major director/producer will ever want to be seen in public with them, even at 100 paces away.

To Hollywood elites these 104 artists who signed this letter have become the "kryptonite of conscience", and these people must be personally and professionally shunned, for having told the truth about what has gone on in Israel.

The slaughter of over 200 innocent children can never, ever be conflated with the "self defense" of the Israeli people. The slaughter was deliberate and intentional.

The IDF had the GPS coordinates of every single school they destroyed, knowing full well they were filled with frightened civilians.

And for the claim that Hamas had stuck bombs in every school and mosque: where, please, is the forensic evidence that this ever happened?!?

Neither the Israeli government nor the IDF has any tangible proof; it is simply a blanket claim to justify continued slaughter.

There is no "less than", in a truly moral world, where all people should have the right to life and the pursuit of their dreams.

Unfortunately, the Israeli government, after decades of demonizing Palestinians, actually believes their own rhetoric, so the killing of innocent Palestinians means absolutely nothing to them.

And as to John Voigt's statement:

Jon Voight penned an open letter Aug. 2 demanding that Cruz, 40, and Bardem, 45, "hang your heads in shame." Wrote Voight: "I am asking all my peers who signed that poison letter against Israel to examine their motives. Can you take back the fire of anti-Semitism that is raging all over the world now?"

Perhaps Mr. Voight, instead of absolving the Israeli government and the IDF from all responsibility for this slaughter, should have realized that any military campaign based on a false charge that Hamas had killed 3 Israeli teens,and which would ultimately kill and wound thousands of innocent Palestinians (including 200 kids) might have a backlash against innocent Jews around the world.

But the people who did this were not the 104 artists who signed this letter: it was the Israeli government and the IDF which caused this to happen, period, end of discussion. The signers of this petition merely pointed out what happened.

Israel's "victim card" has been maxed out as of late, and people around the world are seeing it for what it is; an excuse to visit every possible evil and death against Palestinians, rather than making the hard choices that go with a negotiated peace, where both the Palestinians, and the Israelis, win.

Jewish control of Hollywood, so long denied, is now fully on display for the world to see.

As Palestinians Go to ICC, Human Rights Watch Alleges Israeli War Crimes for Shooting Fleeing Gazans

As the 72-hour ceasefire in Gaza enters its second day, Palestinian officials have been meeting with prosecutors at the International Criminal Court to push for a probe of alleged war crimes committed by Israel during the 29-day offensive that left nearly 1,900 Palestinians dead. Israel has said it attempted to avoid civilian casualties in Gaza and accused Hamas of putting its people in harm’s way by launching rockets from within densely populated districts. In a report this week, Human Rights Watch accused Israeli soldiers of shooting and killing fleeing civilians in Gaza, citing interviews with seven Palestinians in the village of Khuza’a. We air testimony from Khuza’a residents who survived the attacks, and speak to Human Rights Watch Executive Director Kenneth Roth.

When they're not making war on defenseless people, or playing at genocide the way some of us might play Gin or Backgammon; you know, to relax and engage in a little back and forth. Of course, their idea of back and forth is not like the rest of us. They got a motto over there, besides the one that talks about waging war by deception. It goes this way, 'Use force and... if that doesn't work, use more force.”

The protest, which was organized by the International Action Center, began in front of the headquarters of CNN, a news broadcaster that a demonstrator said is functioning almost like a public relations department for Israel.

Netanyahu says deaths in Gaza ‘justified’ as he offers to extend truce with Hamas militants

Israel is ready to extend its ceasefire in the Gaza Strip beyond the current truce, which is scheduled to expire at 8am on Friday, an official has said.

Israel had “expressed its readiness to extend the truce under its current terms”, the official added, referring to the three-day cessation of hostilities agreed on Tuesday.

But Moussa Abu Marzouk, a senior figure in Hamas, the Palestinian group controlling the Gaza Strip, said on social media: “There is no agreement to extend the ceasefire.”

Sami Abu Zuhri, a spokesman for Hamas, added that “extending the 72-hour calm for another period was not discussed” during indirect talks in Egypt between the Israelis and Palestinians.

The Palestinian delegation includes negotiators from Hamas, as well as members of Islamic Jihad and the Palestinian Authority.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

“It was justified. It was proportionate.”, MY ASTROLABE!!!!

Any military attack which kills over 200 innocent children is neither, sir, and you know it.

Right now, the government of Israel, and the IDF, can collectively be characterized as having the morals of a trout; this was not self-defense, it was genocide, pure and simple.

Israel 'willing to extend Gaza ceasefire'

Israel is willing to extend a ceasefire that ended a month of fighting in Gaza beyond a Friday deadline, an Israeli official has said, but Hamas has denied that a new deal has been reached.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel is trying to look good by saying they want to extend the cease-fire, but the trick is in the phrase "under the current terms" which means the borders to Gaza remain closed, Israel limits the food allowed into Gaza to 2300 calories per person per day, Gaza is not allowed to use their own seaport and fishing grounds, and of course, Israel controls Gaza's natural gas fields. In other words, Israel's offer is to go on with Israel getting everything they want, while Gaza gets nothing. HAMAS will not accept that, and frankly, neither would I.

The Zionist-CreatedScofield 'Bible'

World Zionist leaders initiated a program to change America and its religious orientation. One of the tools used to accomplish this goal was an obscure and malleable Civil War veteran named Cyrus I. Schofield. A much larger tool was a venerable, world respected European book publisher--The Oxford University Press.

The scheme was to alter the Christian view of Zionism by creating and promoting a pro-Zionist subculture within Christianity. Scofield's role was to re-write the King James Version of the Bible by inserting Zionist-friendly notes in the margins, between verses and chapters, and on the bottoms of the pages. The Oxford University Press used Scofield, a pastor by then, as the Editor, probably because it needed such as man for a front. The revised bible was called the Scofield Reference Bible, and with limitless advertising and promotion, it became a best-selling "bible" in America and has remained so for 90 years.

How Christians were Hoodwinked by the Scofield Bible

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The zionists have successfully bamboozled American Christians into unquestioning support of the state of Israel by exploiting the myth of the "End Times." But most of the "End Times" mythology doesn't exist in the actual source texts of the Bible. To accomplish their goal, the Zionists needed to replace the traditional bibles with one of their own crafting; the Scofield Bible. This piece of propaganda was created to allow Israel to control the minds of Christians and turn them into (as Stalin described them) "Useful idiots."

The movement that dare not speak its name in Israel

Levy’s unpardonable crime is vocal opposition to the war and to the bombing of Gaza. According to recent polls support for the military operation in Gaza among the Jewish Israeli public stands somewhere between 87% (Channel 10 News) and 95% (Israel Democracy Institute). Even those who are secretly against the war are cautious about voicing their opinion openly.

Thus public opinion went ballistic when Levy attacked those who were bombing Gaza by inverting the well known Hebrew phrase “Hatovim La tayyis” – which means: the best ones go to the air force – by writing “Haraim La tayyis“: the worst ones go to the air force. Even in a time of peace this would be seen as a provocative statement, a heresy against what Levy sees as Israel’s real religion: military security. But in its current mood, this is not the sort of thing that you can easily say out loud.

Israeli leader Netanyahu 'has approached US lawmakers to help avoid war crimes charges' over Palestinian civilian deaths

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has met with US lawmakers in the hope that they can ring-fence his country from Palestinian accusations that it committed war crimes during the recent fighting.

Israel has consistently maintained that its military strikes on Gaza, some of which have resulted in civilian deaths, have been in self-defence against rocket attacks from terrorist group Hamas.

However, Palestinian officials are thought to be considering joining the International Criminal Court (ICC) in a bid to have Israel investigated.

Netanyahu met with a delegation of US politicians – including Republican Steve Israel - to discuss ways of keeping the spotlight off its actions in Gaza, according to the New York Post.

U.S. Suspected Israeli Involvement in 1960s Missing Uranium

Declassified documents from the 1970s provide new evidence that federal officials believed bomb-grade uranium that disappeared from a Pennsylvania nuclear facility in the 1960s was likely taken for use in a clandestine Israeli atomic-weapons program.

The documents, obtained earlier this year through public-records requests by a Washington-based nonprofit group, also indicate that senior officials wanted to keep the matter under wraps for fear it could undermine U.S. Middle East peace efforts.

Though the Central Intelligence Agency's case for the suspected theft wasn't conclusive, it was sufficiently persuasive that "I do not think that the President has plausible deniability" regarding the question, said a memo dated July 28, 1977, by a National Security Council staffer in President Jimmy Carter's administration.

Yet for all of Israel’s whining about how it is being targeted by “Islamic extremists” and “terrorists,”(which should be translated to mean Palestinians, Iran, or any other secular or nationalist Arab government in the region) there is a curious and deafening silence when it is confronted with actual terrorists and Muslim fanatics such as ISIS, al-Nusra, and the myriad of other fundamentalist groups waging jihad in Syria and Iraq.

This bizarre silence has yet to raise the eyebrows of the somnambulant general public.

Antisemitic threats to children on Sydney bus spark police investigation

Police are investigating reports that a group of Jewish schoolchildren heading home on a bus were victims of a vicious antisemitic attack by a group of teenagers in Sydney.

The children, aged between five and 12, were distraught after the group boarded the bus headed to Bondi Junction on Wednesday afternoon and began screaming antisemitic abuse, a mother of three of them said.

Jacqui Blackburn told the Daily Telegraph her three daughters had called her saying: “Please help us mummy, there’s eight drunk men that have just been let on to our school bus.

“They’re screaming, ‘Heil Hitler, kill the Jews ... we’re going to cut your throats’ ... then the phone cut off.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is an obvious and pathetic hate crime hoax by Israel's supporters trying to regain their victim status by screaming "anti-semitism." But look at the facts. The bus driver of this school bus of young Jewish schoolchildren STOPPED THE BUS, AND OPENED THE DOORS, TO LET THESE "DRUNKEN ADULTS" come onto the bus to scream "Heil Hitler" at the kids. Clearly this was staged and continues a long history of hate crime hoaxes perpetrated by Israel's supporters to stifle criticism of Israel's actions.

There is a long history of such hoaxes, from Claremont College professor Kerri Dunn painting swastikas on her car to the Jewish student at George Washington University who painted swastikas on her own door, then claimed to be the victim of anti-Semitism.

The reason I think this is a hoax is simple. When you are a child and you play cops and robbers, you wanted to be the cops, right? When you played cowboys and indians, you wanted to be the cowboys, right? Nobody wants to play at being the losers and the Nazis lost the war. There are no real nazis wannabes; they are all fakes staged for propaganda purposes.

Second point; WW2 happened in the first half of the previous century, long before most of us were born. The Nazis are all gone and Hitler has been dead for a very long time. Nobody cares about swastikas any more. They are not relevant to the 21st century. The only people keeping those relics alive are the Israelis, for propaganda purposes, so they can wave "Nazi" at us from the last century when anyone dares complain about the atrocities taking place today in Gaza.

I watched Israeli police beat my American cousin. Most Palestinian victims don’t even get that much attention.

Imagine sending your son or daughter to the corner store, only to have him or her hunted by violent fundamentalists systematically attacking a local ethnic population. This is Trayvon Martin, en masse.

Israeli children are not subject to night raids by masked men with automatic weapons, nor are they required to always carry documents attesting to their identity and residency. There is no such thing as separate but equal schools, neighborhoods, or roads — they are inherently separate and unequal. The Palestinian child’s reality is a gruesome one punctuated by constant control by arbitrary Israeli directives and the whims of teenage soldiers just out of high school themselves.

Palestinian children are simply that — children — and are the only children in the world required to ensure the security of their occupier. The U.S. government, the provider of more than $3 billion in military aid to Israel every year, should be more assertive in standing up for the rights of these children.

Israel publishes 'Hamas manual' boasting about the propaganda value of Gaza civilian deaths

Israel has published a 'Hamas manual' which it claims boasts about the propaganda value of Gaza civilian deaths and the advantages of operating in populated area.

Remember the forged Niger yellow cake documents?

How many times do you have to be lied to before you understand you are being lied to?

Even if HAMAS actually held that theory that civilian deaths worked for them, why would they write it down knowing Israel's spies would eventually find it and use it against them?

THINK, people, THINK. Look for what should be there and isn't. Once you start thinking, the lies used to launch and justify wars become very obvious.

Israel-Gaza conflict: Gaza’s survivors now face a battle for water, shelter and power

The biggest waste-water treatment plant in Gaza City isn’t the sweetest smelling place at the best of times. But today the abnormally acrid stench and large swarms of flies testified to the sewage stagnating in its lagoons. War has stopped the plant doing the job it was built for: limiting the pollution of the Mediterranean by semi-treating the 40 million litres a day it pumps into the sea.

Gaza, which enjoyed its first full day of peace yesterday, has lost 1,814 people, the vast majority civilians killed as they hid from Israeli bombardments. Its ill-equipped hospitals hold thousands of patients, many suffering from horrific injuries.

But Israel’s destruction of homes and infrastructure will ensure that the possibility of Gaza having a normal existence is a distant prospect.

He also posted more images – an aerial shot of the country, covered in thick plumes of cloud, which he captioned simply "Flying into Israel", and a second, hazy shot of the shoreline as his plane descended.

Then came the pictures of him inspecting "1 of 9 Iron Dome locations that shoot down incoming rockets" and the entrance into a gated community with military protection.

Impose arms embargo on Israel, says Andrew Mitchell Former international development secretary warns that misery in Gaza will 'poison goodwill in Middle East for generations'

An arms embargo should be imposed on Israel, the former international development secretary Andrew Mitchell has said, as he warned that the level of misery and carnage in Gaza was likely to poison the remaining goodwill in the region for generations.

Mitchell also said on Wednesday that UN schools in Gaza should not have been targeted for attacks since they were places of sanctuary.

Mitchell, the Conservative MP for Sutton Coldfield, is the most senior former government minister to pronounce on the crisis. His words came after the decision of the Foreign Office minister Lady Warsi to leave the coalition for its failure to condemn the actions of Israel in Gaza.

He said, however, that he disapproved of Warsi's decision on Tuesday to resign, arguing that her voice needed to be heard and that it was better to "fight your corner" in government.

The movement that dare not speak its name in Israel Vocal opposition to the Gaza war faces overwhelming public support and almost universal scorn

Gideon Levy doesn't want to meet in a coffee bar in Tel Aviv. He is fed up with being hassled in public and spat at, with people not willing to share the table next to him in restaurants. And now he is fed up with the constant presence of his bodyguards, not least because they too have started giving him a hard time about his political views. So he doesn't go out much any more and we sit in the calm of his living room, a few hundred yards from the Yitzhak Rabin Centre. Rabin's assassination by a rightwing Orthodox Jew in 1995 is itself a sobering reminder of the personal cost of peacemaking in Israel.

UK minister resignation over Gaza fuels Tory revolt

Following the resignation of UK foreign office minister, Baroness Warsi, Prime Minister David Cameron is struggling to quell a growing revolt over his contentious handling of the Gaza crisis.

Warsi’s dramatic departure on Tuesday sent shockwaves through the Tory party, bringing to the forefront disputes over both the UK government’s stance regarding the ongoing Gaza crisis and the party’s future election prospects.

Israeli PM Netanyahu holds press conference

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US corporate media, which doesn't even want to talk with anyone from Gaza, is giving Netanyahu the star treatment and allowing him to use their networks to repeat the already discredited (in some cases by Israel's own media) lies about why Israel "had to" murder a thousand Gazans. Netanyahu is pushing "terror tunnels" and seems to forget that when the Nazis has the Warsaw ghetto surrounded, the way Israel surrounds Gaza, tunnels were dug to bring in needed supplies and were destroyed by the Nazis BUT WITHOUT BOMBING THE GHETTO ITSELF. Netanyahu is also claiming that mortars were being fired from within the UN schools, which the UN flatly denies and for which there is absolutely no evidence.

My first thought when seeing Netanyahu's face on the TV was to switch channels, but then I had another thought. I grabbed my handy-dandy Voice Stress Analyzer and put it next to the TV and snapped the following image, which tells us that Netanyahu knows he is lying.

Israel Let US in on Plans to Destroy Gaza Economy in 2008 – Wikileaks

The US embassy in Tel Aviv had access to reliable information about Israel’s intention to keep Gazaeconomy functioning at the lowest possible level, Wikileaks website said on Monday, citing the US diplomatic document.

“Israeli officials have confirmed to Embassy officials on multiple occasions that they intend to keep the Gazan economy functioning at the lowest level possible consistent with avoiding a humanitarian crisis,” reads the document as quoted by Wikileaks.

A diplomatic dispatch was sent by the embassy to the US State and Treasury Departments on November 3, 2008.

In order to achieve its goals, Israeli government introduced a tight monetary policy in the Gaza Strip, cutting the financing of the enclave, as it considered Gaza a “hostile entity.”

A new portion of diplomatic leaks was published on the Wikileaks website amid a new round of ongoing confrontation between Israel and Hamas militants.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to ask: what in the name of heaven (or hell) does the Israeli government have on individuals in the US government to completely prevent it from acting in an honorable way, when it comes to Israeli oppression of Palestinians?!?!?

Perhaps that 9/11 was an inside job, enabled and abetted by Israeli operatives?

Online petition urges ‘Nuremberg for Israel’ over ‘genocide of Palestinians’

Hundreds of Italians have signed an online petition slamming Israel's actions in the Gaza Strip as a “slow genocide” of the Palestinians and demanding a "Nuremberg trial" for Israel over the “destruction” of Palestine.

The petition was signed by 525 Italians, mainly academics, Haaretz reported. The signees say they are dismayed by the events in Gaza and accuse Israel of pursuing colonial policies and "ethnic cleansing" of the Palestinians.

Britain’s Israel Lobby, The Conservative Friends of Israel (CFI) Pressures HM’s Goverment: Is David Cameron Complicit in War Crimes?

Is David Cameron’s refusal to condemn what is apparently a prima facie war crime by the IDF, in Gaza, worrying evidence that the CFI, Conservative Friends of Israel, (AKA the British branch of the Israel lobby) has infiltrated government to the extent that it now influences UK foreign policy in the same way that AIPAC in America determines the US foreign policy agenda?

Yesterday’s resignation of a former Co-Chairman of the Conservative Party, the talented, ex Minister of State at the Foreign Office, Baroness Warsi, would seem to indicate that such a situation does indeed pertain within the Cameron government to the obvious detriment of democracy; the adherence to international law and the Geneva Conventions and the sanctity of human life – in particular, that of the child.

THE PALESTINIAN CONNECTION TO HIROSHIMA

Oliver Stone and Peter Kuznick explained eloquently about the real reasons for dropping the bombs instead of the mythology that is told in school books in America. But does that really make any difference on the horror of what Truman and his generals visited on humanity? Those of us in the medical field understand clinically what radiation poisoning does to the human body but politicians also know that and Truman had detailed reports from the earlier experiments. I met so many hibakushas (survivors of the nuclear blast) and their children and grandchildren. Many told us of the dramatic death of children by leukemia and other cancers and of the congenital deformities. It was more than we could take even as visitors so I can only begin to imagine the actual feelings of people here.

They are the ‘thoughts’ of the extreme right in Israel, who once again are extremely wrong.

Three Israeli teenagers kidnapped and murdered by Hamas were the victims of a premeditated execution by their captors, and were never meant to be used as bargaining chips to free imprisoned terrorists, according to a US official involved in the case. (FROM)

Why Aren't ISIS and Al-Qaeda Attacking Israel?

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

With the recent slaughter of Palestinians taking place on television screens across the world, only the grossly misinformed would believe that Israel’s Palestinian extermination program is actually “self-defense.”

Yet for all of Israel’s whining about how it is being targeted by “Islamic extremists” and “terrorists,”(which should be translated to mean Palestinians, Iran, or any other secular or nationalist Arab government in the region) there is a curious and deafening silence when it is confronted with actual terrorists and Muslim fanatics such as ISIS, al-Nusra, and the myriad of other fundamentalist groups waging jihad in Syria and Iraq.

This bizarre silence has yet to raise the eyebrows of the somnambulant general public.

VIOLENT, GENOCIDAL ANTI-PALESTINIAN RHETORIC MOVING TO US?

Israel's War of Words

When such misleading statements are repeatedly broadcast as facts, it's not surprising that the polls show a majority of US citizens back Israel in its war on Gaza. Here are some examples of the blatant untruths that shape American views:

1. Hamas started the war. Untrue. The Israeli military responded to the June abduction (and later murder) of three Israeli youths with major military assaults in the West Bank and Gaza. On July 7, Israeli forces bombed and killed six Hamas members in Gaza. According to the Israeli think tankMeir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center,it was at that point that Hamas ended its 19-month cease-fire and began firing its rockets into Israel.

What if the Children Dying in Gaza were Jews?

Let’s do a thought experiment and imagine that the Arabs had gotten the better of the Israelis in the 1948 Arab–Israeli War and after years of conflict, all that was left of Israel was the Gaza strip.

Assume for a moment that instead of Palestinians, over 1.8 million Jews were crammed into the 11 mile Gaza strip and the state of Palestine, subsidized and supported by a superpower, was administering the calories to the Jews in Gaza, keeping them to a limit of 2,300 a day.

IDF-Embedded Reporter Says It Fired Guided Missile at UNWRA School, Killing 15 Civilians

An Israeli reporter for Maariv, Aviram Zino, has been embedded with an IDF unit during the current invasion. Noam R writes in his Israeli political blog about Zino’s fawning enthusiastic response to being given the chance of a lifetime to be a reporter in the middle of the “action.” His reporting comes across as cheerleading rather than objective journalism. But in spite of himself, Zino reveals a damning fact that impeaches the IDF’s credibility regarding its denial of deliberately targeting UN buildings housing Palestinian civilian refugees.

Zino reports that the unit commander, Nadav, ordered the firing of a $100,000 Tamuz (aka Spike) heat-seeking anti-tank missile on a UNWRA school in Beit Hanoun on July 24th:

ODE TO A DEAD PALESTINIAN CHILD

Yesterday you were playing with your cousins on this sandy Gaza beach.

You were playing soccer and you had just scored a goal with your makeshift cloth beach ball.

You knew there was danger on the beach but you could not resist the beach and the cool ocean breeze.

Somehow you could not understand the war around you.

You could not comprehend the hatred of the Zionists toward your Palestinian brothers and sisters.

If a Genocide Falls in the Forest

There's a wide and mysterious chasm between the stated intentions of the Israeli government as depicted by the U.S. media and what the Israeli government has been doing in Gaza, even as recounted in the U.S. media.

With the morgues full, Gazans are packing freezers with their dead children. Meanwhile, the worst images to be found in Israel depict fear, not death and suffering. Why the contrast? If the Israeli intent is defensive, why are 97% of the deaths Gazan, not Israeli? If the targets are fighters, why are whole families being slaughtered and their houses leveled? Why are schools and hospitals and children playing on the beach targeted? Why target water and electricity if the goal is not to attack an entire population?

The mystery melts away if you look at the stated intentions of the Israeli government as not depicted by the U.S. media but readily available in Israeli media and online.

Crimes against Humanity. Israel’s “Own Words”: “We Must Expel Arabs…We Struck Civilians Because They Deserved It”

“We must expel Arabs and take their place.”– David Ben-Gurion, October 5 1937, Journal of Palestine Studies, Vol. 41, No. 2 (Winter 2012), University of California Press, pp. 245-250.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here are some more quotes by Israelis regarding Palestine.

1. "There is a huge gap between us (Jews) and our enemies, not just in ability but in morality, culture, sanctity of life, and conscience. They are our neighbors here, but it seems as if at a distance of a few hundred meters away, there are people who do not belong to our continent, to our world, but actually belong to a different galaxy." Israeli president Moshe Katsav. The Jerusalem Post, May 10, 2001

2. "The Palestinians are like crocodiles, the more you give them meat, they want more".... Ehud Barak, Prime Minister of Israel at the time - August 28, 2000. Reported in the Jerusalem Post August 30, 2000

3. " [The Palestinians are] beasts walking on two legs." Menahim Begin, speech to the Knesset, quoted in Amnon Kapeliouk, "Begin and the Beasts". New Statesman, 25 June 1982.

4. "The Palestinians" would be crushed like grasshoppers ... heads smashed against the boulders and walls." " Isreali Prime Minister (at the time) in a speech to Jewish settlers New York Times April 1, 1988

5. "When we have settled the land, all the Arabs will be able to do about it will be to scurry around like drugged cockroaches in a bottle." Raphael Eitan, Chief of Staff of the Israeli Defence Forces, New York Times, 14 April 1983.

6. "How can we return the occupied territories? There is nobody to return them to." Golda Maier, March 8, 1969.

7. "There was no such thing as Palestinians, they never existed." Golda Maier Israeli Prime Minister June 15, 1969

8. "The thesis that the danger of genocide was hanging over us in June 1967 and that Israel was fighting for its physical existence is only bluff, which was born and developed after the war." Israeli General Matityahu Peled, Ha'aretz, 19 March 1972.

9. David Ben Gurion (the first Israeli Prime Minister): "If I were an Arab leader, I would never sign an agreement with Israel. It is normal; we have taken their country. It is true God promised it to us, but how could that interest them? Our God is not theirs. There has been Anti - Semitism, the Nazis, Hitler, Auschwitz, but was that their fault ? They see but one thing: we have come and we have stolen their country. Why would they accept that?" Quoted by Nahum Goldmann in Le Paraddoxe Juif (The Jewish Paradox), pp121.

10. Ben Gurion also warned in 1948 : "We must do everything to insure they ( the Palestinians) never do return." Assuring his fellow Zionists that Palestinians will never come back to their homes. "The old will die and the young will forget."

A Global Legal Intifada

What’s plainly not needed is that various states take the carnage in Gaza to simply make pronouncements denouncing Israel and the United States for political gain without invoking the legal remedies that are available to them to potentially protect Palestinians in Gaza. Of course, such a course will likely mean serious retribution of some sort from Israel and likely the United States.

"Mission Accomplished": Israel Withdraws Troops After Nearly 1,900 Killed in Gaza

A 72-hour cease fire has commenced between Palestinian factions and Israel on Tuesday and IDF ground forces have reportedly withdrawn from the Gaza Strip after a nearly month-long bombardment and military offensive that left nearly 1,900 Palestinians dead— including huge numbers of civilians and hundreds of children—and close to 10,000 people injured.

Sixty-four IDF soldiers and three civilians were killed in Israel during more than three weeks of fighting began that began on July 8.

Florida Group Bypasses Media to Get Word Out on Israeli War Crimes

A central Florida based activist group, St. Pete for Peace has taken the initiative to circumvent a corrupt and biased media in order to spread awareness about the ongoing Israeli ethnic cleansing operation in Gaza. Despite the long-term consequences of the unconditional backing of the right-wing government of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the unspeakable truth that their tax money is being used to finance the murders of unarmed civilians (including children) Americans are ill-served by a media and political class that has a vested interest in maintaining a particular narrative. That narrative is that Israel is the victim rather than the oppressor and that Israel is the only “democracy” in the Middle East, despite an increasing trend towards racism, suppression of critics of official government policy and most of all extreme violence.

Israeli operation kills more than 400 Gaza children

Israeli military operation in the Gaza Strip has killed 408 children, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) said on Tuesday.

The death toll exceeded that of the sad 2008-2009 Operation Cast Lead that killed 350 children.

According to UNICEF, over the last month the operation injured no less than 2,500 Palestinian children. A one-month infant is among the victims of the Israeli fire at the Gaza Strip, which is one of the world’s most densely populated areas. The conflict has already claimed lives of 1,800 Palestinians. Six children had been injured, the fund said.

According to the UN, civilians account for more than 70% of those killed; children make up a third of the total civilian death count.

Israel and the Erosion of International Humanitarian Law – An Analysis by Lawrence Davidson

So, Israeli behavior and U.S. protection of that behavior is a somber message that we have a way to go to overcome our propensity for murder and mayhem.

We have managed to create an albeit imperfect prototype for enforcement through the UN. But we have yet to overcome the problem of selective application of that law.

Gaza Ceasefire: After 1800+ Dead, What Led Israel to Stop the Assault, and What Comes Next?

After a nearly month-long assault that left at least 1,865 Palestinians dead, Israel has pulled its ground forces from the Gaza Strip under the 72-hour ceasefire that went into effect earlier today. Israeli and Palestinian factions have agreed to attend talks in Cairo on a longer-term agreement. Gaza officials say the vast majority of Palestinian victims were civilians in the Israeli offensive that began on July 8. Israel says 64 of its soldiers and three civilians have been killed. Palestinians are returning to homes and neighborhoods that have seen a massive amount of destruction. Nearly a quarter of Gaza’s 1.8 million resident were displaced during the fighting which destroyed more than 3,000 homes. The ceasefire was reached after international outrage over Palestinian civilian deaths peaked, with even Israel’s chief backer, the United States, criticizing recent Israeli shelling of United Nations shelters that killed scores of displaced Palestinians.

It was an entity that seemed addicted to periodic spasms of mass violence, particularly in the form of war carried out with little or no regard for non-combatants or other restraining factors.
