Israel Intends Blitzkrieg Against Iran Nuclear Deal

It's got media scoundrel editors concerned. New York Times ones support the deal with reservations, saying:

"(N)o one should have any illusions about Iran, which considers Israel a sworn enemy; often condemns the United States; supports Hezbollah and other terrorist organizations; and aspires to greater influence in the region." and fiscal policies.

Israel Intends BlitzkriegAgainst Iran Nuclear Deal

It's got most House and Senate members convinced. It's working on others directly and through its Lobby - applying their usual heavy-handed pressure.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All Israel can do is take the US out of the agreement with Iran, thereby proving once again to the rest of the world that Washington DC is a puppet ruler ruling this nation for Tel Aviv. What will then happen is that the other members of the P5 will make their own deals with Iran, and it will be the US caught on the outside, cut off from Iranian oil and markets.

Zionists Use Donald Trump to Fix Another Election

by Henry Makow Ph.D.

Like a turd that won't flush, Donald Trump is back again to serve his Illuminati Jewish masters. This time around, his role is to win the GOP nomination and throw the election to Hillary Clinton, the Illuminati bankers' preferred candidate.

If this seems farfetched, consider that Trump is allegedly leading the other GOP candidates by a large margin. He catapulted into the lead by pretending to champion ordinary Americans who are fed up with illegal immigration. Calling Mexicans "rapists" is a little extreme but he needed to get attention fast.

AIPAC Vs THE WORLD

AIPAC called on Congress to reject the Iran nuclear deal, saying it does not meet critical markers that the influential pro-Israel lobby outlined in recent weeks. But the liberal Jewish Middle East lobby J Street announced a multimillion-dollar campaign to support the agreement.

The American Israel Public Affairs Committee made its case against in a statement Wednesday delivered after President Barack Obama conducted a news conference of more than an hour defending the deal achieved a day earlier.

Israeli commandos ‘assassinated Syrian general in 2008’ – NSA leaks

Israel’s naval commando unit shot and killed Muhammad Suleiman, a top military advisor to the Syrian President Bashar Assad in 2008, according to a leaked National Security Agency file, published by The Intercept.

Suleiman was shot in the head and the neck, whist he was hosting a dinner party at his villa in the seaside Syrian city of Tartus. The Israeli commandos then proceeded to escape via the sea, the report stated, citing an internal document, which was obtained from the trove of files leaked by the former NSA contractor Edward Snowden.

S. Africa condemns free propaganda trips to Israel

On July 12, South Africa’s deputy minister of traditional affairs, Obed Bapela, condemned the South Africa Israel Forum (SAIF) for brainwashing the future leadership of the country by sending them to the Zionist entity via all expenses paid trips. He said the student who participated in these trips, brought ‘shame’ to South Africa. He accused SAIF being part of Israeli campaign to distort ruling ANC’s stand on occupied Palestine.

NSA document: Israeli special forces assassinated top Syrian military official

Evidence has emerged from leaked US signals intelligence intercepts that Israeli special forces were responsible for assassinating a senior Syrian military official who was a close adviser to President Bashar al-Assad.

Brig Gen Mahmoud Suleiman was shot dead on a beach near the northern Syrian port of Tartus in August 2008. The Guardian reported at the time that the seaside murder was perpetrated by a sniper firing from a yacht moored offshore.

Israel has never commented publicly on suspicions that it was involved. But newly revealed secret US intelligence documents state as a fact that Israeli special forces killed the general.

Lebanon: Israeli drone crashes in port of Tripoli

An unmanned Israeli reconnaissance drone crashed in the waters near northern Lebanon's port of Tripoli Saturday, the Lebanese army and a security official said.

In a statement, the army said the drone crashed at 8.30 a.m. local time (0530 GMT) Saturday. It gave no other details but published photos that showed the aircraft largely intact in the waters and then on land after it was taken out.

It had a Jewish Star of David and Hebrew writing on it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It should be pointed out that up near Tripoli there are no Hezbollah. So what is Israel spying on the Sunni Muslims for?

Benjamin Netanyahu to Lester Holt: Iran Nuclear Deal Poses Threat to U.S., Israel

The landmark Iran nuclear deal poses a threat to both Israel and the United States, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told NBC News' Lester Holt on Wednesday.

"We think this is not only a threat to us. We think this is a threat to you as well," Netanyahu said, a day after Iran and six world powers, including the U.S., reached the historic agreement. "Iran has killed more Americans than anyone other than al Qaeda."

"They're going to get hundreds of billions of dollars to fuel their terror and military machine," he added.

Obama buries Gaza under Iran nuclear deal

The deal between the five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Iran over the latter’s nuclear program lifts an ominous shadow from a region already ravaged by bloodshed and conflict.

The specter of another ideological, US-led war on the pretext, once again, of eliminating phantom weapons of mass destruction recedes with this agreement. For that, the Iranian people and all humanity should breathe a sigh of relief.

Today US President Barack Obama held a press conference in Washington to promote the deal in the face of outright rejectionism from many members of Congress and Israel.

Israelis share photos of children demanding death to “terrorists”

Though Israel already has a death penalty option on the books, a death sentence hasn’t been carried out since the hanging of Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann in 1962. The true purpose of the bill was not the death penalty, it was racist incitement catering to the right-wing chauvinism surging through the Israeli Jewish public after reaching its peak during last summer’s brutal assault on Gaza.

Why Palestinians Fight Back - The Logic of Life and Death in Gaza

Another row is brewing between Israel and the Palestinian Resistance Movement, Hamas, over the release of Avraham Mengitsu, an Israeli citizen who, according to Israeli military sources, ‘slipped into Gaza’ on September 7, 2014.

The circumstances of Mengitsu’s entry into Gaza remain unclear, especially since Hamas’ political leader, Khaled Mashaal, denied that the military wing of Hamas is holding the Israeli citizen.

US/Israeli/Saudi ‘Behavior’ Problems

Jewish groups condemn 49ers running back for his tweets

A tweet by 49ers returner and running back Jarryd Hayne drew the attention of the Anti-Defamation League. Hayne, an Australian attempting to make a conversion from rugby to the NFL, tweeted that Jews killed Jesus. ADL, in a press release, noted that the tweet appeared July 1st and has since been rescinded.

“Jesus wanted to help people but was killed by his own people,” the ADL quoted Hayne writing. When challenged by a fan on twitter, Hayne then wrote, “The Jews were the people who took him to the Romans n forced them to give the order because they couldn’t.”

AIPAC: Anti-Iranian Propaganda at Congress

There is no evidence re the leading state sponsor slur, but let's not get distracted by it. How do tougher inspections than ever faced by any country FACILITATE anything other than Iran's ability to refute slander and libel? The inspections worked in Iraq. Inspections work very well. The only reason anything is missing from these inspections is past US resistance to universal standards that would have required the US to face surprise inspections itself, and U.S. abuse of inspections in Iraq to spy on and seek to overthrow the Iraqi government.

Bernie Sanders Townhall Explodes Over Israel


Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) got into a heated confrontation with constituents during a town hall in his home state this past weekend. After a woman in the crowd asked Sanders about a Senate resolution that condemned Hamas but “said nothing” about Israel’s “massacre” of Palestinians in Gaza, the senator became defensive, fighting off angry residents with shouts of “Excuse me! Shut up!”

Republicans hate the Iran nuclear deal because it means we won't bomb Iran

As soon as President Obama announced the historic nuclear agreement between the US and Iran on Tuesday, Republican presidential candidates raced to see who could get out the most hyperbolic, foaming-at-the-mouth condemnation of the potential for peace.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay, Jed and Lindsey, if you really feel that way about it... Here are your rifles. Here are your parachutes. We ran out of the desert camo but here are two bright da-glo orange jumpsuit from the CIA's torture centers. Watch your head climbing into that transport aircraft, and we will call Tehran and tell them you are on your way to kick their butts all by yourself.

But We The People remember the lies about stolen incubators that tricked us into the first invasion of Iraq.

We The People remember the lies about Saddam's nuclear weapons that tricked us into the second invasion of Iraq.

We The People remember how only a year ago the government tried to trick us into war with Syria with more lies about poison gas.

We The People remember how there weren't really torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin or a Spanish mine in Havana Harbor, but how there really WERE weapons on board the Lusitania.

In short, We The People remember all the lies, frauds, and deceptions used to trick us into wars of conquest, to send our young people out to die in wars created out of thin air by and for the money-junkies. I think it is time that we have a new rule in America; that those who want war are the first to the front lines. You are all splendidly brave with the lives of other peoples' children. Let's see the true measure of your courage and commitment to war.

You first!

After Iran deal, Obama offers Netanyahu talks on upgrading Israeli military

In a phone conversation between the two leaders Tuesday, Netanyahu did not respond to the offer, said the official, who requested anonymity.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Netanyahu wants to turn this into a dick-measuring contest. Let him. He only makes himself look worse with this childishness.

What amazes me is how all these people bashing the Iran deal and bashing Obama cannot see the large picture. Obama is not "caving in" to Iran or anyone else. Obama's goal with Iran (as it was with normalizing relations with Cuba) is to prevent more nations from pivoting to Russia and China, as they are pivoting faster than the US can invade and conquer them! I am not a huge fan of Obama, but let us recognize that he is finally starting to think like a statesman!

Israel prefers permanent standoff to any Iran deal, says U.K.'s foreign secretary

Philip Hammond slams Netanyahu's criticism of nuclear agreement hours before he heads to Israel, where he will discuss agreement with the prime minister.

Israel needs an "enemy" Iran to scare its own people into obedience, to extort more money from the US taxpayer, and to distract the world from Israel's own war crimes and nuclear arsenal.

Lindsey Graham Whines To Fox And Friends Over The Iran Deal

Ed Henry filled in for Brian Kilmeade this morning, and as predicted, the right wing warmongers are collectively losing their marbles over the Iran Deal. Fox had on two Republican candidates, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Governor Chris Christie (R-NJ) both expressed displeasure at any deal with Iran that didn't guarantee war, but Lindsey was especially flabbergasted. Christie was busy ranting about the suddenly massive border security issue.

Pacifying Israel, Pentagon says will utilize military option against Iran if needed

Defense Secretary Ashton Carter says the US might utilize the “military option” against Iran in a bid to pacify Israel after Tehran, Washington and five other world powers concluded nuclear talks in Vienna.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, even though a deal has been reached, both the US and Israel (well, Israel; the US is just going along) will launch a war with Iran in which young Americans are going to be killed and crippled! If I were Obama I would fire Carter for this insubordination!

GAZA ~~ A WINDOW TO HELL

Spending the day of 17 August in Khuzaa was like peering through a window to hell. But what we witnessed in the landscape of apocalyptic oblivion paled in comparison to the experience described to me by two Palestine Red Crescent volunteers who had attempted to break through the Israeli military cordon during the siege of the town.

Twenty-five-year-old Ahmed Awad and 24-year-old Ala’a Alkusofi arrived at the edge of Khuzaa at a time when Red Cross ambulance crews refused to travel anywhere near the town. They said they had come to collect the body of a man whom soldiers had lashed to a tree by both arms and shot in the leg. When they arrived at the site, the soldiers ordered the driver of their ambulance, Muhammed Abadla, to exit the vehicle. When he obliged, they told him to walk five meters forward and switch on a flashlight. As soon as he flicked the light on, the soldiers shot him in the chest and killed him.

Israel prevents Palestinians in Jerusalem from getting water

"The water crisis in the neighbourhoods behind the Wall is due to continuous cuts of water supplies, which sometimes last three weeks," said the association. It pointed out that the Israeli water authority does not name the Palestinian neighbourhoods behind the Wall, but refers to them as "every unlicensed site". This might include many other Arab neighbourhoods in Israel, the association warned.

Based on this policy, the Israeli water authority does not supply "enough water that meets quality standards" to the Arab residents in these areas. It also adopts "illegal and arbitrary" ways of deciding consumption prices and collecting money.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, Israel is charging the Palestinians for the water they don't get?!?

I thought there was no such thing as an "Israel lobby"? Isn't that a "bigoted, anti-Semitic canard"? The Jewish Daily Forward reports:

The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) said in a statement it was “deeply concerned” that the deal “would fail to block Iran’s path to a nuclear weapon and further entrench and empower the leading state sponsor of terror.”

Pope Francis, Alison Weir and the Sanhedrin

Alison Weir has recently joined the long list of Goyim who have been charged by the Palestinian Solidarity Movement's Sanhedrin Court. Alison, however, should cheer up, Pope Francis has also been charged in a Sanhedrin court in a different jurisdiction. This time it is the Jerusalem Sanhedrin, pretty much the same Jewish Judicial entity that charged Jesus before he was brought up in front of Roman Governor Pontius Pilate.

An Israeli media outlet reported last week that The Jerusalem Sanhedrin –a Jewish religious ‘High Court composed of 71 sages’, has declared that it is putting Pope Francis on trial unless he retracts his statement that the Jews have no right to the land of Israel or to Jerusalem.

FLASHBACK - Senator Sanders Statement on Prime Minister Netanyahu’s Speech to Congress

“More than a decade of wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have cost us thousands of lives and trillions in treasure and made a difficult situation even worse. Those experiences should reinforce our resolve to make every diplomatic effort to avoid another rush to war,” Sanders said.

“It goes without saying that Iran must not be allowed to develop a nuclear weapon. It goes without saying that the United States will stand by our long-standing friendship and support for the nation of Israel. Unfortunately, Prime Minister Netanyahu did not offer any serious alternatives to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.

Norwegian trauma specialist accuses Israel of ‘violating international law’

A Norwegian trauma specialist and anaesthesiologist who has treated casualties in Gaza has accused Israel of “repetitious violations of international law”.

Dr Mads Gilbert has written two books about his experiences, including the recently published A Night in Gaza. He is giving a presentation in the O’Reilly Theatre in Dublin tonight.

Speaking to The Irish Times, he said he had noticed that with each of the four Israeli assaults on Gaza – in 2006, 2009, 2012 and last year – the intensity and level of brutality had increased.

Zarif: Netanyahu is upset that Iran deal ended a ‘manufactured crisis’

A deal with world powers ended a “manufactured crisis” over Iran’s nuclear program, its foreign minister said Wednesday as he arrived home from negotiating the agreement which angered US lawmakers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Zarif is correct. The entire claim that Iran is a danger to the world rests on Israel's propaganda, bolstered by Israel's whores in the US government and corporate media. There never has been any real evidence that Iran is interested in building nuclear weapons (although one could hardly blame them if they wanted to, what with the US invading nations that do not have a nuclear deterrent, picking them off one by one). Iran has not invaded another country in a war of aggression in over 200 years. The entire hysteria about Iran's nuclear weapons is as manufactured and phony as the hysteria over Iraq's nuclear weapons. Netanyahu is furious, because he did not get the war against Iran he wants. More than that, Netanyahu is scared, because with the manufactured phony crisis about Iran coming to an end, he has nothing left with which to distract from discussions about Israel's endless crimes against their neighbors, in particular the Gazans, or from Israel's very real nuclear arsenal.

ISRAELI SPECIAL FORCES ASSASSINATED SENIOR SYRIAN OFFICIAL

On Aug. 1, 2008, a small team of Israeli commandos entered the waters near Tartus, Syria, and shot and killed a Syrian general as he was holding a dinner party at his seaside weekend home. Muhammad Suleiman, a top aide to the Syrian president, was shot in the head and neck, and the Israeli military team escaped by sea. While Israel has never spoken about its involvement, secret U.S. intelligence files confirm that Israeli special operations forces assassinated the general while he vacationed at his luxury villa on the Syrian coast.

Israel’s involvement in Suleiman’s assassination raises questions about both the purpose of the killing, as well as whether Israel violated international law in conducting the operation.

Rand Paul Opposes Iran Deal

In a brief statement posted on his Facebook page, “libertarian-ish” GOP presidential candidate Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) has come out against the recently signed accord between the P5+1 and Iran, which would restrict Iran’s nuclear program to peaceful uses of nuclear power. Here is his statement in full:

“The proposed agreement with Iran is unacceptable for the following reasons:

“1) Sanctions relief precedes evidence of compliance, 2) Iran is left with significant nuclear capacity, 3) it lifts the ban on selling advanced weapons to Iran

“I will, therefore, vote against the agreement.

“While I continue to believe that negotiations are preferable to war, I would prefer to keep the interim agreement in place instead of accepting a bad deal.”

'Iran have been given a licence to kill': Netanyahu blasts 'historic mistake' of agreeing Tehran nuclear deal as Israeli ministers condemn the 'surrender by the West to the axis of evil'

Israel today launched a blistering attack on Western powers for agreeing a controversial atomic deal with Iran, warning that it gave Tehran 'a sure path to nuclear weapons'.

Under the accord, sanctions imposed by the United States, European Union and United Nations will be lifted in return for Iran agreeing long-term curbs on a nuclear programme that the West has suspected was aimed at creating an atomic bomb.

The European Union called it a 'sign of hope for the entire world', while President Barack Obama insisted the deal meant 'every pathway to a nuclear weapon is cut off'.

But this was angrily rejected by Israel, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu branding the deal 'a bad mistake of historic proportions'.

AIPAC is an unregistered foreign agent. It operates illegally and destructively. It deplores peace. It supports wars of aggression and occupation harshness.

In less than so many words, they declared war on today's important agreement - intending to go all out to subvert it.

And now Israel wants to bomb more nuclear facilities in Iran or infect it with a computer virus to cause a melt-down, so that what happened by accident at Three-Mile Island, Chernobyl, and Fukushima, will be done deliberately to the people of Iran, who have not invaded or threatened anyone.

There are indeed monsters living among us.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Netanyahu has a real problem. With the P5+1 deal completed, world attention is going to go back to Israel's reign of destruction on Gaza a year ago, and without the distraction of trying to ban Iran's imaginary nuclear weapons, world opinion will turn to banning Israel's very real nuclear weapons!

Israeli officials have reacted with fury at the announcement of a historic nuclear deal between Iran and six major world powers.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the breakthrough in negotiations, which will curb Iran's nuclear program in exchange for relief from crippling international sanctions, "a bad mistake of historic proportions".

"Iran is going to receive a sure path to nuclear weapons. Many of the restrictions that were supposed to prevent it from getting there will be lifted," Netanyahu said on Tueesday (14 July).

Iran deal: Bad news for ISIS & JSOP?

They’re calling it a “win-win.” But the Iran nuclear deal could be a “lose-lose” for two leading Middle Eastern terrorist organizations: Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and Jewish State in Occupied Palestine (JSOP).

Will terrorist leaders “Bibi” Netanyahu and “Caliph” al-Baghdadi call a joint press conference to denounce the deal?

The Iran nuclear deal represents an existential threat to these two terror organizations because it signals a possible change in Western policy away from the destabilization doctrine. Instead of pushing Balkanization and chaos, the West may now decide it can live with a reasonably stable Middle East. That would mean a long, slow recovery for the region from the wave of death and destruction that ensued from the Zionist genocide beginning in 1948, and the accelerated genocide provoked by the neocon coup d’état on September 11th, 2001.

Video debunks Israeli claim in teen’s killing

The Israeli army said Shomer and another soldier had opened fire when the vehicle was damaged, “and in response to the imminent danger”.
But a video distributed by the B’Tselem human rights group, with footage from a surveillance camera at an adjacent gas station, shows a person running towards a military jeep and throwing a stone at it.
The vehicle stops, and two men are seen getting out of it and running out of the frame in pursuit of the stone-thrower.
B’Tselem cited eyewitnesses as saying that Shomer shot Kasba “from a distance of some 10m” and then left the scene without getting medical aid for the teen, who eventually died.

A Case Study of Israeli Murder

Since 2000 alone, Israel killed around 10,000 Palestinians, including over 2,000 children. The Occupied Territories are virtual free-fire zones.

Israel and the South African Nuclear Bomb Documents

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Now that a deal has been reached with Iran over its non-existent nuclear weapons, it is time to remember that only one nation in the Middle East actually has nuclear weapons, and that is Israel, which has so many nuclear warheads that, as these documents show, they tried to sell one to the former government of South Africa.

Left unanswered; who ELSE did Israel sell nuclear weapons to!

Remembering Gaza’s victims

Documenting Israel’s military assault on Gaza last summer, I witnessed what can only be called atrocities: hospitals and morgues, overwhelmed by the constant flow of casualties; nights of terror under widespread and indiscriminate bombing; attacks on hospitals, ambulances and United Nations schools used as shelters; entire neighborhoods destroyed.

Of all the horrifying statistics, one is particularly shocking: 142 families lost three members or more in single Israeli strikes. I started the project #ObliteratedFamilies — now available for download and exhibitioning all over the world — to document such loss. It began as a project about the victims, but soon became also a project about the survivors. How can one cope with loss on this scale?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Now that a deal has been reached with Iran, Netanyahu has a real problem. The world's attention will shift back to Israel's war crimes, and Israel's nuclear weapons.

Israel arrests hunger striker Khader Adnan day after releasing him

Khader Adnan, a member of the Islamic Jihad political party and resistance group, was arrested today in occupied Jerusalem one day after his release secured by a 55-day hunger strike in Israeli prison.

Palestinian and Israeli media reported that Adnan was detained on his way to worship at al-Aqsa mosque on the occasion of Leilat al-Qadr, which Muslims observe during Ramadan to mark the revelation of the Quran to the Prophet Muhammad.

Israel imposes severe restrictions on Palestinians living under its military occupation regime. The Bethlehem-based Ma’an News Agency reported that access to al-Aqsa mosque was tightened ahead of Leilat al-Qadr.

The Troubling Implications of Hillary’s Anti-BDS Letter

In the letter, made public a few days later, Clinton made a number of statements which are not only demonstrably false but raise serious concerns regarding what kind of policies she would pursue as president.

She claimed that the BDS movement was working to “malign and undermine Israel and the Jewish people.” Though some BDS activists target Israel as a whole, most efforts on college campuses and elsewhere focus solely on the Israeli occupation, particularly companies that profit from that occupation and support illegal Israeli settlements in the West Bank. In any case, the BDS campaign does not “malign and undermine” Jews. This cynical effort to depict the movement as anti-Semitic could be an indication of the kind of rhetoric she would use as president to discredit human rights activists who challenge her policies elsewhere.

Video shows that Israelis shot Palestinian boy Mohammed Ali-Kosba in the back

A video released by Israel’s leading human rights group, B’Tselem, appears to corroborate eyewitness accounts that a Palestinian youth who was shot dead by a senior Israeli officer 10 days ago was fleeing at the time and not, as the army maintains, posing a danger to soldiers.

Israel police arrests 3 Jewish youth suspected of arson at Galilee church

The Judea and Samaria police and the Shin Bet arrested 3 Jewish youth who are suspected of being involved in the arson at the Church of Loaves and Fishes in northern Israel about a month ago, it was cleared for publication on Sunday.

The three were placed under an order preventing them from meeting a lawyer, and will be brought for a remand extension at the Magistrate's Court in Nazareth on Sunday.

They are represented by Honenu attorneys Adi Kedar and Aharon Roza, who appealed against the order to the Magistrate's and District courts in Jerusalem.

The Shin Bet said Sunday that a covert investigation led them to the three suspects.

Hillary Clinton openly courting American Jews for their money, say critics

In an attempt to repair the damage done to the United States-Israeli relationship by President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Hillary Clinton is attempting to convince Zionists and their supporters she truly loves Israel. According to the Jewish news media on Thursday, the presidential candidate, who possesses a reputation for having a casual relationship with truth, is telling deep-pocketed Jews that she would be more faithful to the Jewish State than her former boss, Barack Obama. But critics, especially Jewish hawks, claim that former President Bill Clinton and his female mirror image, Hillary, are the most successful 'con artists' in the political arena today.

Jul 10 12:38

Why Hillary Clinton is moving left on every issue except Israel: In a letter to hawkish donor Haim Saban, she hints she may oppose a two-state resolution at the UN.

From immigration to campaign finance reform to criminal justice, Hillary Clinton’s campaign strategy is clear: Move to Barack Obama’s left, to energize liberal voters. Except on Israel, where she’s moving to Barack Obama’s right, to energize hawkish donors.

The latest example is a just-released letter about her opposition to the movement to boycott, divest from and sanction Israel (BDS). Among the most significant things about the letter is one of the people to whom it’s addressed: Haim Saban. (Hillary sent similar letters to at least two other Jewish organizational officials, Malcolm Hoenlein and Jack Rosen). Saban is neither an expert on the Middle East nor on Jewish law or culture. He’s a guy who writes large checks. These days, if Joseph Ber Soleveitchik or Abraham Joshua Heschel wanted to correspond with a presidential candidate, they’d first be asked to donate to his Super PAC.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Thank you very much, I do NOT want a President who is declared "Good for Israel".

I do not want a President who gives the orders for throwing bullets, bombs, and bodies at countries Israel doesn't like very much; and that pretty much includes ALL of Israel's neighbors.

A Clinton presidency will be a bloody presidency, with more and more wars fought to "defend" this ruthlessly artheid, self-proclaimed theocracy with nuclear weapons. The dead and the maimed will be ours; so will the financial burdens of these wars, at a time when we are dealing with a 16 trillion dollar national debt deficiency.

We the People deserve better; far better than a Clinton presidency can ever deliver.

IF the Republicans had a brain cell left between them, they would seriously look at drafting Linda Lingle, former Republican Governor of Hawaii, as VP.
I have met the woman, and although we have our philosophical disagreements on some issues, I found her bright, charming, and very comfortable dealing with Heads of State at various business symposia here in Hawaii.

Israel accused of racism over case of Ethiopian Jew missing in Gaza

The belated admission by Israel that one of its citizens was last seen entering Gaza 10 months ago, and that little is known of his fate since, has caused outrage among the country’s small community of Ethiopian Jews.

Avraham Mengistu’s family, able to speak for the first time on Thursday after a gag order imposed since September was lifted, accused the government and security forces of foot-dragging and racism.

The assumption among Israeli authorities is that the 28-year-old has been detained by Hamas in Gaza since he went missing.

Hillary Clinton Supports Illegal Israeli Settlements

Clinton's support for Israel is unwavering - one-sided like virtually everyone else in Washington. Palestinian rights don't matter except at times paying them disingenuous lip service.

As a New York senator (from January 2001 - January 2009), Clinton said "undivided Jerusalem as (Israel's) capital…must never be questioned" - or its status as "a Jewish state," regardless of its large Arab population on privately owned land and recognition under international law as an international city under a UN protectorate.

She supported cutting off Palestinian aid - ignoring the harm it would cause. She outspokenly defended unrestricted Israeli West Bank colonization - on stolen Palestinian land.

She believes it's as much an Israeli right as statehood for Palestinians. She moderated her tone slightly as Secretary of State (January 2009 - February 2013).

Hillary Clinton: Use Congress and Corporations to End Boycott Israel Movement

According to a letter from Hillary Clinton to pro-Israel donor, Haim Saban, she wants to be the top pro-Israel candidate in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination. More specifically, Clinton pledges her opposition to the BDS (Boycott, Divest, Sanction) movement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here is the problem. Boycotts are a recognized form of non-violent protest protected as free speech under the First Amendment. Hillary is basically promising to subvert one of our most basic freedoms, indeed subvert the Bill of Rights, to please a foreign government!

Do we want a President so eager to sell out America's values to please a foreign master?

Amid detente with Hamas, Israel says 2 citizens held in Gaza

JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel on Thursday said that two of its citizens are being held captive in the Gaza Strip, an announcement that brought back bitter memories of the case of an Israeli soldier who was captured and imprisoned for five years by the Hamas militant group.
Note: 2015, 5,554 Palestinian security detainees and prisoners were held in Israeli prisons, 357 of them from the Gaza Strip.* An additional 1,028 Palestinians were held in Israel Prison Service facilities for being in Israel illegally, 16 of them from the Gaza Strip.Jun 16, 2015

But with political forces mobilizing on Capitol Hill to torpedo the deal, and both sides pushing for last-minute concessions, the likelihood of a breakthrough remains unclear. Does President Obama have enough political capital to ensure the sustainability of an eventual deal, and what are the broader geopolitical implications of the agreement?

Unshackling the Reality of USS Liberty

For any number of reasons Ray McGovern’s recent article on the USS Liberty attack underscores the absolute imperative for the fate of the ship and its crew and Israel’s involvement in it to be kept on the political and public radar.

The first is that despite being well-documented in countless articles, books and documentaries, not nearly enough folks even after all this time — both Stateside and elsewhere — are aware of the backstory of this tragic, lamentable crime, as it was hushed up by everyone involved with the ever reliable mainstream media (MSM) as always, complicit handmaidens in such. In this respect and with numerous precedents to go by, we can all imagine the ‘all hell breaks loose’ hue and cry if a bunch of Jihadi-fuelled ‘terror-meisters’ of the ISIS ilk managed to perpetrate a similar attack on a US vessel.

As attendees sipped lattes and browsed the latest intelligence technology for sale, Israeli Minister of Intelligence and Transportation Yisrael Katz shared plans to build an Israeli-controlled island off the coast of Gaza as a way for Israel to “disengage” from the embattled strip while maintaining the eight-year-siege.

The mysterious case of the Israeli who slipped into Gaza

Usually people are desperate to leave Gaza. But an African-born Israeli named Avraham Mangisto decided to slip across the border fence, bristling with high-tech sensors and protected by remote-controlled machine guns, and enter the Gaza Strip last year.

That was 10 months ago. His fate is unknown, though Israel says he is likely being held by armed Palestinian factions.

News of his puzzling disappearance has been officially suppressed in the Israeli media until now under a gag order by the military censor. Israel and the Islamist militant group Hamas, which controls the coastal enclave, fought a brutal 50-day war last summer that ended in August. Mangisto entered Gaza the following month.

Human Rights Council voted to adopt a resolution applying a recent U.N. report condemning Israel and the Palestinian liberation group Hamas over war crimes committed last year in Gaza. It also called for an end to the impunity of Israeli officials responsible for the 2014 massacre. Only Israel's closest ally, the United States, voted against the resolution while 41 countries voted in favor. India, Kenya, Ethiopia, Paraguay and Macedonia abstained. All European Union member states of the Council, including Britain, France and Germany, voted in favor of the resolution and labeled Israel's alleged self-defense assault on Gaza 'disproportionate.'

FBI raids Michigan Jewish college suspected of defrauding federal government

Federal agents raided the offices of a Jewish college that has prospered from millions of dollars in federal aid even though almost all its students live in Israel and hardly any of them graduate.

Federal officials declined to comment on the reason for the July 7 raid at Michigan Jewish Institute, in a suburb of Detroit.

But in 2012, the Forward showed how MJI’s assets soared as the college enrolled thousands of students in distance and online learning courses.

During a five-year period, MJI’s students claimed $25 million under the Federal Pell Grant Program, which is designed for the neediest American students.

Almost all those students took degree courses in Judaic studies at yeshivas and seminaries in Israel that they never completed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wonder if Hillary still thinks BDS is the big problem with colleges!

On a side note, the failure of these students to complete their courses underlines a common human trait; people do not respect or value things which they get for free. The more the American taxpayer showers all over Israel, the more disdainful of Americans' "generosity" Israel becomes!

Hillary Clinton Pledges to Defend Israeli Apartheid and Fight BDS Movement in Letter to Mega-Donor

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton sent a letter to media mogul Haim Saban, a mega-donor, assuring him that she would make countering the global Boycott, Divestment & Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel a priority. She invoked a recent terrorist attack against Jews in Paris to condemn BDS and specifically sought Saban’s advice on how to fight back.

“I am writing to express my alarm over the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement, or ‘BDS,’ a global effort to isolate the State of Israel by ending commercial and academic exchanges,” Clinton wrote [PDF]. “I am seeking your advice on how we can work together—across party lines and with a diverse array of voices—to reverse this trend with information and advocacy, and fight back against further attempts to isolate and delegitimize Israel.”

Clinton expressed serious concern over comparisons between Israel and South African apartheid.

For then, the U.S. Congress will have 30 days to vote the agreement up or down. This vote, forced on an unwilling president by his own party’s Senate members several weeks ago, poses a new threat.

The Democratic front-runner concludes the letter, which Saban released through a public relations agency, by saying that she plans to address the BDS threat in the coming weeks, as her campaign intensifies.
“I will be speaking out publicly on this in the weeks ahead, so I am eager to hear your perspective and advice,” she wrote.

Latest Netanyahu cartoon says west is allowing ISIS to build ‘atomic bombs’ aimed at US and Christianity

As the P5+1 push ahead to make a deal with the Iranian government over its nuclear program, the Israeli prime minister has published his latest cartoon to try and stop the deal. This cartoon equates ISIS, the Islamic state, with the “Islamic State of Iran” and suggests that the west is going to allow ISIS to get nukes.

Imagine Islamic State building atomic bombs. Well, maybe it’s not that hard to imagine.

The Islamic State of Iran – like ISIS. Just much bigger.

The cartoon ends with an ISIS fighter who has morphed into an Iranian ayatollah hugging nuclear warheads that are labeled with the US, Israel, Christianity and gay rights.

Israeli Military Court Justice: Rubber-Stamp Guilt

Civil law applies for Israeli Jews – not Palestinians. They’re subject to military kangaroo court justice. Rubber-stamp convictions follow. Fundamental international rule of law principles don’t apply.

A new B’Tselem report explains how Israel’s system works for Palestinians – titled “Presumed Guilty: Remand in Custody by Military Courts in the West Bank.” They’re one of the main ways Israel enforces occupation harshness.

Since 1967, over 800,000 Palestinians were victimized by tribunal injustice. “Detention is injurious by definition,” B’Tselem explained.

‘Iran nuclear program worse than ISIS threat’ – Netanyahu

Throughout Iran nuclear talks in recent years, one thing has remained unchanged – and that’s the position of the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu.

Net closes on Israeli rights activist as watchdog takes up his case

Marianne Azizi describes the environment in which Israeli rights activists have to work, where children are commodities in a state-sponsored lucrative business and where you can be locked up for protesting.

Clinton 'alarmed' over calls for Israel boycott, urges bi-partisan action

U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton expressed her alarm last week over the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanction movement, and said countering it was a priority that stretches "across party lines," vowing to always "stand up for Israel" if she becomes president.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Boycotts are a recognized form of non-violent protest protected as free speech under the First Amendment. Hillary once again shows she is a whore for Israel, willing to subvert America's freedoms to please her masters in Tel Aviv!

Jewish billionaires line up behind Clinton

According to a recent report published in the Jewish Telegraph Agency, Jewish billionaires George Soros and Haim Saban, two of the most politically influential plutocratic internationalists swaying American elections on the Democratic side of the political spectrum, have donated $3 million to Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign. Other wealthy Jewish plutocrats have followed suit, greasing the wheels of the Clinton campaign.

Israel gears up to battle Iran deal in Congress

Israel is preparing for the next phase of its fierce opposition to the Iran nuclear deal, by lobbying US Congressmen and women to block the emerging comprehensive agreement once it is finalized and goes to lawmakers for approval. But some in Jerusalem fear it is a lost cause given the belief that the potential economic benefits from resuming business with Iran could significantly outweigh political considerations.

A racist country with too much influence over US — Israel’s new image among Democrats

Rightwing pro-Israel pollster Frank Luntz sounds the alarm with a survey of elite US opinion saying that 3/4 of American Democratic elites regard Israel as having too much influence, and half of them say Israel is racist. Just what we’ve been saying: criticism of Israel is gaining traction in the Democratic base and is sure to play a role in next year’s election campaigns. Hillary Clinton is surely freaking over these numbers; what’s a presidential candidate to do, will this become a tsunami.

A Study of Julian

This week, 500,000 documents from Saudi intelligence were released by WikiLeaks, or were they? Now we find that teams, including Israeli intelligence, are “sifting through” the release, coordinating them into groups and removing what they tell us we don’t need to see. Thus far nothing involving the coordinated aggression of Israel and Saudi Arabia against Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and Yemen has reached print. None of it will.

Similarly, in earlier WikiLeaks dumps, the New York Times asked the Israeli consulate in New York to send over teams to review and edit what was released. Thus far nothing on Israel or any nation that discusses Israel has ever been leaked. In millions of documents, no mention of Gaza, or Israeli nuclear weapons or even the existence of Israel is mentioned.

Moreover, no press agency, media group or newspaper has every noted this bizarre occurrence, particularly when Israel is the “ground zero” of so many conflicts.

ISIS OR ZION; WHO WANTS TO RID JERUSALEM OF CHRISTIANS?

Menacing Arabic flyers, purportedly issued by an Islamic State branch in Jerusalem, threatened Christian Arabs over the weekend with slaughter unless they flee the capital by the end of Ramadan.

While the authenticity of the leaflets, which bear the Islamic State insignia, cannot be verified, they called upon like-minded zealots to identify “those who collaborate with the Zionists” and provide their addresses.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obviously Israeli false-flag propaganda!

How to counter Israel's hasbara campaign

Many commentators are not traceable to any real individual because they use pseudonyms. On Twitter, where there is much debate surrounding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, some anti-Palestine comments or reactions come from pages with 25 followers and little activity; one begins to doubt whether these are genuine Twitter users.
Indeed, these commentators are paid individuals, often university students, who are hired by the office of the prime minister of Israel to respond quickly and fiercely to anyone daring to criticise the state of Israel and its actions.

Jewish extremist linked to US bomber acquitted amid UK prosecution “shambles”

Roberta Moore, the leader of the Jewish Defence League UK, last week had a conviction for assault and possession of an offensive weapon overturned on appeal.

A second JDL activist did not appeal his conviction for assault during the same September 2014 disruption of a Palestine solidarity event. In February, Robert De Jonge changed his plea to guilty and was in March sentenced to community service and a fine.

In September, he assaulted Andy Simons, an organizer of a Palestine literary festival in Haringey, north London. A group of right-wing Zionist activists in the audience invaded the stage, attempting to disrupt the event.

The reversal came as government prosecutors faced criticism for not taking the cases seriously enough. The appeal judge described the prosecution’s case as a “shambles.”
