Cameron back in No 10 looks like bad news for Middle East peace

The closest fought UK General Election for many years has produced an unexpected victory for David Cameron and the Conservative Party. With predictions of a hung parliament built around Westminster fears of a tartan invasion by Scottish National Party MPs, the result of a clearly failing first-past-the-post electoral system is likely to fuel calls for electoral reform. Millions of votes for minority parties were, to all intents and purposes, wasted. This, though, is not the only negative aspect of the poll. It is bad news all round for peace in the Middle East, and the first to feel the effects will be Britain's 2-million Muslim citizens.

Israeli Crimes in Gaza, 2014: Amnesty Whitewashes Another Massacre

Amnesty International has issued four reports on the Israeli massacre in Gaza in 2014.1Given the scale of the destruction and the number of fatalities, any attempt to document the crimes committed should be welcomed. However, these reports are problematic, and raise questions about the organisation itself, including why the reports were ever written at all.2They also raise questions about the broader human rights industry that are worth considering.

More Neocon-Zionist Theater in Texas

The Zionist-influenced mass media has predictably seized on this latest terror stage-play to push the fear campaign of ‘homegrown terror’ harder than ever before, plunging the already credulous masses deeper into an artificially-induced slumber of willful ignorance about the fabricated nature of ‘terrorism’ in the West.

Netanyahu’s Fringe Coalition Regime, Palestinian Authority Hypocrisy

Netanyahu Appoints Ayelet Shaked—Who Called For Genocide of Palestinians—as Justice Minister in New Government

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu decided to appoint Ayelet Shaked as justice minister in his fourth government. Shaked is a Member of Knesset (MK) representing the far-right HaBayit HaYehudi (“Jewish Home”) party. She is known for her extreme, ultranationalist views.

During Israel’s summer 2014 attack on Gaza, MK Shaked essentially called for the genocide of Palestinians. In a Facebook post on July 1—a day before Israeli extremists kidnapped Palestinian teenager Muhammad Abu Khdeir and burned him alive—the lawmaker asserted that “the entire Palestinian people is the enemy” and called for its destruction, “including its elderly and its women, its cities and its villages, its property and its infrastructure.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In an earlier post, I mentioned that Netanyahu's new government was slightly to the right of Attila the Hun. Let me rephrase that; MURDEROUSLY to the right of Attila the Hun!

This appointment is really bad for the Palestinian people, and a harbinger of the horrors to most probably come against them, perpetrated by this Israeli government.

US ‘Disappointed’ by Israel’s New East Jerusalem Settlement Plans

US State Department officials issued a statement of rebuke to Israel’s newly minted government today, criticizing their planned expansion of settlements in occupied East Jerusalem.

“This is a disappointing development,” noted spokesman Jeff Rathke, saying the US wants to “see a commitment for the two-state solution,” and that the latest construction plans are incompatible with that.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Jeff Rathke: this will only happen when pigs fly.

The new Israeli government (which could be reasonably described, collectively, as being just a little to the right of Attila the Hun) is committed to as much extermination of the Palestinian people, and expropriation of their lands, as they think they can get away with. Episodic, serial genocide is their plan, which is why we see the killings and land grabs come in increments.

And Mr. Rathke, a note, and one that Israel's bag men in Washington don't want Americans to remember; under the Symington Amendment, every bit of financial and military aid given to Israel is illegal. Unlike Iran which DID sign the NNPT, Israel, which is a known nuclear nation, refuses to become a signatory to the NNPT, and have its nuclear sites inspected.

This is what makes any and all US aid to Israel - amounting to billions of dollars in a year - completely illegal. And yet, Congress, with its pathological generosity to this country, believes it is above the law, and continues to lavish Israel with money and military aid.

What Obama should do (if he had any "male attributes") is to STOP all aid to Israel, declare publicly that he, through his executive action" is enforcing the Symington Amendment, and no more aid to Israel will be forthcoming.

Unfortunately, again, that will only happen when pigs fly!!!

Israel's safety belt: the US Christian Right pushes new anti-BDS initiative

Tennessee's General Assembly formally condemned the Palestinian-led Boycott Divestment Sanctions (BDS) campaign, the first US state legislature to do so. Joint Resolution 170 was approved 93-1 by the House of Representatives, following a 30-0 vote in the state Senate.

The resolution calls BDS "one of the main vehicles for spreading anti-Semitism", describing it as "inherently antithetical and deeply damaging to the causes of peace, justice, equality, democracy and human rights for all the peoples in the Middle East."

The vote, which carries no legal weight, was celebrated by pro-Israel campaigners such as StandWithUs co-founder Roz Rothstein, who tweeted "oh happy day."

Ex-U.N. Official John Dugard: Israel’s Crimes are "Infinitely Worse" Than in Apartheid South Africa

As Palestine joins the International Criminal Court, former U.N. Special Rapporteur John Dugard talks about how an apartheid case could be brought against Israel in the ICC. "I’m a South African who lived through apartheid," Dugard said. "I have no hesitation in saying that Israel’s crimes are infinitely worse than those committed by the apartheid regime of South Africa."

Palestinian Authority Hypocrisy

n May 7, Netanyahu announced the most lunatic fringe coalition regime in Israel's history.

It includes racist hate-mongers, over-the-top fascists and religious fundamentalist zealots - an incendiary combination threatening regional peace and stability.

Palestinian Authority (PA) chief negotiator Saeb Erekat said "(t)he face of a new form of racist, discriminatory Israel has been revealed."

Netanyahu is "leading the charge to bury the two-state solution and impose a perpetual apartheid regime."

He formed a new government "of war which will be against peace and stability in our region."

Abbas spokesman Nabil Abu Rudaineh said Netanyahu must choose between peace and a two-state solution or a "policy of aggression and arbitrary violations against our people."

Israeli Media: Obama to Support Palestinian Bid for Statehood at the UN

The formation of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s new government coalition, comprised of far-right cabinet members, may have ruffled the feathers of the White House. So much so that sources say President Obama may push for UN Security Council recognition of Palestine.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

ATTENTION SECRET SERVICE: Be extra vigilant. Presidents who defy Israel get shot at! Remember what happened to John F. Kennedy who opposed Israel obtaining nuclear weapons (along with pissing off the federal Reserve).

92 injured in Lag B’Omer revelries on Mount Meron

Thousands of people visit the site of his tomb in Meron on that date, and bonfires are lit throughout Israel. In certain Jewish communities, it is customary to give 3-year-old boys their first haircut on Lag B’Omer.

In order to prevent ill treatment of animals at bonfires, dozens of volunteer veterinarians patrolled the country’s celebrations. The vets worked to prevent animal abuse, after several incidents of puppies and kittens being thrown into bonfires were reported in previous years.

Who's Playing "Hide and Cheat"?

The estimable McClatchy News Service says President Obama "scored a decisive win" by negotiating an agreement that "will prevent Iran from ever obtaining a nuclear weapon" and termed it "a personal triumph for the President."

Not surprisingly, the painfully negotiated pact was denounced by Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, who has repeatedly, (and illegally,) threatened Iran over its alleged desire to build an atomic bomb. But Obama's rebuff of Netanyahu's position was well deserved, given Israel's record of stealing American military secrets and spying on private American talks with its European allies.

‘Polish gas chamber’ row

According to TVN, Dr Tal Harris, researcher and lecturer at Goethe Institute in Frankfurt, made the error on Wednesday in a column about Armenian genocide and Turkey. In it, the grandson of Holocaust survivors asked: “What is the better alternative: a quick death in a Polish gas chamber or a slow one in the hot Syrian desert?”

When asked by infuriated readers on Twitter to give examples of “Polish gas chambers” he replied with Wikipedia links to Brzezinka, Auschwitz, Sobibor and Majdanek. The text has since been altered to “Nazi gas chambers”.

"However, I don't — what I want to make sure is, I don't want to use my platform (the wrong way). I feel like there's some people who become prominent, and then it's out in the foreign press. You know, shit on Israel. I do not. I don't want to do that."

Syrian Army Ambushes Large Islamist Contingent in As-Sweida; Israeli Weapons Confiscated

On Thursday morning, the Syrian Arab Army’s 5th Armored Division – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) and Palestine Liberation Army (PLA) – laid a powerful ambush on a large Islamist rebel contingent traveling through the hills of Al-Khalidiyah in the As-Sweida Governorate.

The militants from the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” and their allies from “Liwaa Al-Yarmouk” and the Free Syrian Army (FSA) were traveling through Al-Khalidiyah in order to transport a multitude of Israeli and American manufactured weapons to their fighters entrenched in the northern countryside of As-Sweida.

FLASHBACK 2012 - Who funds Pamela Geller? In 2010, it was a former Israel Project board member

A foundation called the Alan and Hope Winters Foundation gave $5,000 to the American Freedom Defense Initiative in 2010, the Geller-led outfit behind the anti-Muslim advertisements. The foundation also gave money to a host of other anti-Muslim outfits that year, including the neoconservative Hudson Institute ($25,000) and David Yerushalmi’s Society of Americans for National Existence ($115,000).

Geller said that the Winters’ money went to her activism around Park 51. But the fact that a big-pocketed foundation gave cash to Geller’s group raises the question as to whether other foundations are likewise funding Geller’s ad buying spree.

Pamela Geller: Israeli Secret Agent?

What Pam Geller doesn’t understand is that the United States is not at war is Islam. The United States was not attacked by Islam. We were criminally attacked by religious extremists. Geller claims, "All Muslims are the same." That is like saying all Jews or all Christians are the same. It is as ridiculous a claim as saying grade school kids in the U.S. have textbooks with three chapters on Islam and the teachers (nationwide) are keeping the children from bringing home their books.

US: Israel’s construction of 900 settlements in East Jerusalem is ‘a disappointing development’

US State Department spokesman Jeff Rathke said that the Jerusalem District Planning Committee's approval of the construction of 900 settlement units in East Jerusalem is "a disappointing development".

Speaking in a press briefing yesterday, Rathke said: "We have continued to reiterate that we are strongly opposed to the steps by the Israeli authorities to advance construction in East Jerusalem. This is a disappointing development, and we're concerned about it."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yet the President continues to send those checks full of billions of taxpayer dollars to pay for it all!

Saudi airline denies landing plane in Israel for first time in nation's history

Head of new pro-Israel group makes series of racist comments

In a discussion prompted by the killing of a Jewish security guard at a bar mitzvah in Copenhagen earlier that month, Benjamin implies that Muslims in general are to blame for anti-Semitic crimes.

“I see anti-Semitism and the rise of fundamental Islam and the changing demographics in Europe as inexticably linked. It’s a bit — if I could use a rather crude analogy — it’s a bit like having a hornets’ nest at the end of your garden.”

The court's ruling sharpens the focus on the ongoing congressional debate surrounding the program.

Sen Sen. John McCain said Thursday he is worried about a court's ruling, saying the program is necessary to fight terror.

"It is clear that 9/11 could have been prevented if we had known about the communications," the Arizona Republican, who chairs the Senate Armed Services Committee, told Fox News. "We have to have that capability."

The New Israeli Government: It’s Worse Than You Think

The new Israeli government is a total victory for the most extreme elements in the extreme Right in Israel. The overtly racist party HaBayit HaYehudi, the party of the West Bank settlers, will control the Justice Dept. , the Education Dept. , and almost all important government offices concerned with the Occupation of the West Bank. And they have secured a promise from Likud to bring forward a proposed law that would make it illegal for any nonprofit to receive funds from a foreign government without approval from the government. That is directed at the various Israeli peace, reconciliation, human rights, and dialogue organizations that get support from a variety of European countries who want to see peace between Israel and Palestinians.

Israel: Serial Terror-Bomber

Israel operates like America, other rogue NATO members and Saudi Arabia. It claims a divine right to terror-bomb other nations, groups and individuals at its discretion.

It calls naked aggression "self-defense." It calls justifiable resistance "terrorism." It willfully targets civilians. It invents reasons to justify its lawlessness. They ring hollow every time.

Palestinian village fights to survive as Israel sends in bulldozers

When hundreds of Israeli police and border patrol officers arrived in the village of Dahmash at 3am on 15 April, they sealed off the homes and forbade local residents from venturing outside. Within two hours, their bulldozers had torn through homes.

Eighteen members of the Assaf family, including several children, were left homeless. In total, five apartments in three different buildings were flattened.

A video of the demolition has since been posted on YouTube.

“It was very scary for the kids,” Miada Assaf, who lived one of the buildings, told a group of activists and journalists visiting the village on 2 May. “It’s very difficult for us when they come and destroy homes.”

Residents told The Electronic Intifada that police arrived in heavy riot gear and fired gas bombs in the area before bringing in the bulldozers.

Amnesty International has issued four reports on the Israeli massacre in Gaza in 2014.

Palestine: More Than 11,000 Demolition Orders Pending in West Bank

There are more than 11,000 currently outstanding demolition orders issued by Israeli authorities against Palestinian-owned properties in the Occupied West Bank, according to new figures.

The official data, as presented by UN OCHA in a recent report, shows that Israeli authorities issued 14,087 demolition orders in ‘Area C’ of the West Bank between 1988 and 2014, on the basis that they lacked the required permit.

The number of affected structures is higher, however, as some orders target several structures.

Israeli MP Accused of Inciting Palestinian Genocide Named Justice Minister

There are fresh concerns over the future of Israeli-Palestinian relations after an Israeli ultranationalist member of the country’s parliament, who is accused of calling for the genocide of Palestinian people, was appointed Israel’s Justice minister.

Senate Sets Test Vote on Iran Sanctions Bill

As expected, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R – KY) has cut off debate on the compromise bill aimed at giving Congress the power to veto a P5+1 nuclear agreement with Iran.

Sen. McConnell’s move cuts off debate on further amendments to the bill, which have predominantly aimed to add more onerous restrictions to a nuclear deal that would almost certainly kill the talks outright.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Congress does not have any authority over the United Nations Security Council, which is the "P5" in "P5+1." Odd how a Congress totally uninterested in oversight when the White House wants to start a war suddenly demands they be heard when the White House wants to work towards peace! But I digress.

Congress, in inserting itself into a foreign policy issue, is in violation of the Logan Act. All they can do is order Obama not to agree to the P5+1 at which point the other nations will just move forward with their own agreement to end the sanctions, and the US will be the one who is economically isolated.

Putin Aide Says Israel is Training ISIS

A senior aide to Russian President Vladimir Putin has accused Israel's Mossad of training Islamic State (aka ISIS) terrorists operating in Iraq and Syria, Iran's Press TV reports.

Alexander Prokhanov told the state-controlled news outlet that Mossad is also likely to have transferred some of its “spying experience” to the leadership of ISIS, even as Israeli military advisers assisted the terrorists in other ways.

Prokhanov said ISIS is a byproduct of US policies in the Middle East.

"ISIS is a tool at the hands of the United States. They tell the Europeans that if we (the Americans) do not intervene, ISIS will cause you harm," he said. In fact, however, he added, Iran and Russia are the main targets of ISIS terror.

Are You Really Stunned That Ethiopian Anger Has Reached Tel Aviv?

Scenes like that, of the press talking with activists, were mixed with those that looked ripped from the West Bank, with the Israeli army confronting Palestinian demonstrators. Legions of policemen with truncheons waded into crowds of black men and women; police hurled stun grenades by the dozens; mounted officers charged down the streets lined with posh cafés. Lumbering white armored vehicles sprayed the protesters with water cannons.

Was this Tel Aviv? The high-tech metropolis where everything is relaxed and people sit on the beach for hours on end? How, some wondered, could such violence reach all the way into this bubble?

But the real question is: How could it not?

South Africans apologize over forest planted on Palestinian village

Many donors to the South Africa Forest in present-day Israel probably do not realize that they are helping to cover up the results of ethnic cleansing. Such details have been omitted from a Jewish National Fund website promoting the Lower Galilee project as environmentally sound and offering a certificate to anyone who finances the plantation of at least two trees.

Campaigners with the group Stop the JNF in South Africa are trying to highlight how the land where the forest is located was once the site of the Palestinian village of Lubya. It was destroyed by Zionist forces during the Nakba (Arabic for catastrophe), the forced displacement of Palestinians in 1948.

In a novel ceremony on 1 May, a number of South Africans who have previously given money to the JNF issued a public apology.

The Israeli group Breaking the Silence issued a report this morning containing testimony from Israeli soldiers about the savagery and criminality committed by the Israeli military during the attack on Gaza last summer. The Independent has a good article describing the report’s findings: “The Israeli military deliberately pounded civilian areas in the Gaza Strip with incessant fire of inaccurate ordinance” and “was at best indifferent about casualties among the Palestinian population.” At best.

UN battle to ‘shame’ Israel over abuse of children

Palestinian solidarity groups have taken to social media to step up the pressure on United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to include Israel for the first time on a “shame list” of serious violators of children’s rights.

The campaign, which culminates in the submission of an online petition to Ban’s office on 7 May, was launched after indications that Israel is exerting enormous pressure on UN officials to avoid being named.

As Israel Lobby Pushes Full-Access Inspections, US Makes False Claims on Iran Nuclear Deal

Senior US officials have been claiming that Iranian negotiators had agreed in Lausanne to accept a demand that Iran allow the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to inspect any site it considered suspicious anywhere in the country, including military bases. Such a provision would have given Israel license to make an endless series of bogus intelligence claims such as the ones that had been labeled "possible military dimensions" aimed at preventing the lifting of sanctions against Iran.

Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei repudiated the claims that Iran had agreed in Lausanne to such inspections on demand. He declared in a speech on April 9 that the IAEA would not be allowed to inspect the country's military sites "under the excuse of nuclear supervision." Khamenei's speech came the day after the Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan had made it clear that no international inspections of Iranian military sites would be allowed under the nuclear agreement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel wants a war to be fought between the US and Iran, and their purchased representatives in the US Congress are leaving no stone unturned to insure that this will happen.

There is only one teensy, tiny problem, however, and is the 6,000 lb bear, draped over the Bluthner piano: that problem is Russia.

Russian officials, both political and military, have gone on record that they will come to Iran's aid militarily if it is attacked; perhaps, at first, with logistics and weapons.

If things look dicey for Iran, we may next see Russian troops aiding the Iranians.

Russia and Iran have already signed a military pact this year, and will be doing joint military exercises to increase their interoperational capabilities.

I would strongly caution President Obama not to let this scenario unfold; the US military doesn't have the troop strength; the manufacturing; or the money to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia.

And if China joins the fray on Iran's side, all bets are off.

Israeli Commander: Civilian Toll Will Be Even Higher in Next Gaza War

Amid talk of Israeli soldiers ordered to deliberately murder Gaza civilians, Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz, Israeli Army commander during last summer’s invasion, talked up an even bigger civilian toll next time.

“It’s going to be worse next time,” Gantz said, insisting that Hamas’ tactics require a dramatic change to the “rules of war” and that Israel will have to attack civilians knowing Hamas is likely hiding behind them.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is apparent that General Gantz has his very own "Palestinian Final Solution"; to kill all Palestinians he thinks he can get away with killing.

It is very disappointing to see what Israel has become in the 21st century; a rabidly apartheid, self-proclaimed theocracy with nuclear weapons!!

Israeli Troops Ordered to Kill Civilians on Sight During Gaza Invasion

Israel has repeatedly denied reports of deliberate targeting of civilians during its wars in the Gaza Strip, those claims were once again proven false today with the release of a new report by Israeli veterans NGO Breaking the Silence.

The report features testimony from more than 60 Israeli soldiers who confirmed that not only did they deliberately target civilians during the most recent invasion, but that they were explicitly ordered to do so.

“Whoever you see there, you kill,” is how one soldier summed up the orders. He said soldiers were told the civilians “knew they’re not supposed to be there” and therefore they were to kill anyone who wasn’t an Israeli soldier on sight.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The IDF "the most moral army in the world", MY ASTROLABE!!!

Netanyahu, his entire cabinet, and the chief of staff of the IDF should be cooling their heels in a cell at the International Criminal Court for that one.

Israeli Soldiers Break the Silence on Gaza War

"Breaking the Silence is an organization of veteran combatants who have served in the Israeli military since the start of the Second Intifada and have taken it upon themselves to expose the Israeli public to the reality of everyday life in the Occupied Territories."

They recount disturbing experiences Israel wants suppressed - horrific crimes of war and against humanity including mass murdering civilians "excused as military necessities, or explained as extreme and unique cases."

Truth is polar opposite. Israel operates lawlessly. Killing, persecuting, ill-treating or otherwise harming Palestinians is longstanding practice.

THE ISRAELI ROAD TO THE ABYSS

I am not a prophet of doom and gloom and I don’t see into the future. However, from the intensive experience of 50 years of closely observing Israeli behavior, I honestly believe that such scenarios are not outside the realm of possibility. They could happen. History does repeat itself, if only because most men don’t learn from their blunders. And Israeli leaders are not driven by wisdom or morality, but rather by arrogance and evil millenarianism, very much like Hitler was. We know the rest of the story.

Danish anti-Israeli settlement Ads bad, NY anti-Muslim ads good

The advertisements were put on 35 buses in the Danish capital and featured two women and the quote: “Our conscience is clean! We neither buy products from the Israeli settlements nor invest in the settlement industry.”

But Movia said they dropped them after four days because of the number of inquiries they received about what the Danish Palestinian Friendship Association stands for, AFP reports.

[We] “received a significant number of inquiries regarding the Danish Palestinian Friendship Association’s campaign against Israeli settlements.”

The company declined to comment but released a statement saying the ads were “unnecessarily offensive.”

* * *

Christian Juhl, a lawmaker from the Red-Green Alliance, said that he thought the decision by the bus company was “embarrassing.”

Meanwhile, in New York, a bus ad by renowned Islamophobe, Pam Geller, that is easily more hateful and offensive was shoved down our throats by court decree.

The Independent has a good article describing the report’s findings: “The Israeli military deliberately pounded civilian areas in the Gaza Strip with incessant fire of inaccurate ordinance” and “was at best indifferent about casualties among the Palestinian population.” At best.

This should surprise nobody who paid any attention to the brutal Israeli destruction of Gaza or, for that matter, countless Israeli attacks before that. The U.N. has said that 7 out of 10 people killed by the Israelis were civilians, “including 1,462 civilians, among them 495 children and 253 women”; video of Israelis killing four Gazan boys as they played on a beach sickened anyone decent.

Israel’s systematic discrimination against blacks

Ramallah: The Ethiopian community and other black Israelis have been discriminated against and brutalized for years, according to Palestinian political analysts.

“Various methods of discrimination against Ethiopians and blacks in general is manifested even in the smallest of government procedures,” said Ghassan Al Khatib, a political analyst in Ramallah.

Tens of thousands of Ethiopian Jews were flown to Israel from Africa decades ago when famine threatened their communities. This group is now over 100,000 in size and regularly complains of discrimination. More than half of Ethiopian-Israelis live in poverty.

The recent protests, including Sunday’s violent protest in Tel Aviv, were provoked by a police assault on a black Israeli soldier.

TIME: Masses of protesters gathering in the streets, some throwing rocks and bottles at the police. In full riot gear, the police respond in force, shooting tear-gas canisters, percussion bombs and water guns. By the end of the evening, 46 injured people are sent to area hospitals.

Scenes of violent protest are something that people in Israel are used to seeing periodically, though it is usually in the context of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This time, though, the rage involves youth Israelis of Ethiopian descent who are angry at their own government.

Israel inflicted massive harm on Palestinians during 2014 war: Report

Israel inflicted "massive and unprecedented harm" to Palestinian civilians in the 2014 Gaza war with indiscriminate fire and lax rules of engagement, a report said on Monday, citing testimony given anonymously by dozens of troops.

The 237-page report by the Israeli advocacy group Breaking the Silence described how Israel Defence Forces (IDF) left swathes of devastation after they invaded Gaza last July with the stated aim of halting Hamas rocket fire out of the enclave.

"We were firing purposelessly all day long. Hamas was nowhere to be seen," one tank sergeant was quoted as saying.

The group said its finding cast "grave doubt on the IDF's ethics".

Four days after the incident, Abu Rhoda filed a complaint with the police. Almost three years later, on August 6, 2014, the prosecution informed us that it closed the case for lack of evidence. After a series of 14 phone calls, we managed to photocopy the case file on December 15, 2014 — more than four months after the case was closed.

Israel’s Dirty Nuclear Secrets

In the sociopathic mind of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, any Middle Eastern country seeking to defend itself from Israel’s repeated aggressions in the region, or merely desiring peaceful nuclear power, is itself a terroristic aggressor, posing an “existential threat” to the Zionist state. So as Iran moves toward a negotiated resolution of its nuclear rights and will soon receive defensive missile systems it purchased from Russia, the tinpot tyrant from Tel Aviv has turned completely rabid.

Sens. Cotton, Rubio Fail in Push for Anti-Iran Amendments

Starting Thursday, Sens. Tom Cotton (R – AK) and Marco Rubio (R – FL) stalled the compromise Iran nuclear talks bill, trying to force votes on a series of amendments to the bill that would impose a series of new demands on Iran, none of which were nuclear-related.

Some of the amendments, including a demand that Iran publicly endorse Israel as a “Jewish state,” were opposed even by many hawks, who saw the language as so divisive it might imperil the bill outright.

The Senate’s Republican leadership has announced they are going to “wrap up” consideration of amendments to the bill on Monday, spurning further pushes by Cotton and Rubio, and will try to have a vote on the bill itself this week. The bill aims to give the US Congress the power to veto a deal between the P5+1 and Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good!

There are many logical, and deep, disagreements I have with this Administration, but the potential for the P5+1 agreement with Iran is not one of them.

The wild card in all of this, of course, is Israel, which may simply decide to cork off militarily against Iran, while the ink is barely dry on the agreement.

And Secretary of State Kerry is naive in the extreme when he makes the following remarks, as noted in antiwar.com, yesterday:

Speaking today on Israel’s Channel 10, Secretary of State John Kerry urged Israel to tone down its hysteria over the possible P5+1 nuclear deal with Iran, saying the US can guarantee to Israel that Iran will never acquire a nuclear weapon. At the same time, Kerry said he didn’t believe there was a serious risk of a “surprise” Israeli attack on Iran, saying he couldn’t imagine Israel would attack Iran without consulting the US government first.

Mr. Secretary, were I you, I would not bet against that possibility at all.

Hezbollah reserves right to retaliate against Israeli attacks on Syria

Israeli hostilities against Syria should be considered an attack on all of Damascus’ allies, said Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah, warning that all necessary preparations for a future war with Israel have been made.

"The repeated bombings that struck several targets in Syria are a major violation, and we consider that any strike against Syria is a strike against the whole of the resistance axis, not just against Syria," Nasrallah told Al-Mayadeen television in Beirut.

"The axis is capable of responding,” he said, referring to Syria itself, Iran, Hezbollah as well as Palestinian Hamas. “It could happen any time.”

'Fire at every person you see': Israeli soldiers reveal they were ordered to shoot to kill in Gaza – even if the targets may have been civilians

The Israeli military deliberately pounded civilian areas in the Gaza Strip with incessant fire of inaccurate ordinance during last year’s war against Hamas and was at best indifferent about casualties among the Palestinian population.

Those are the conclusions of a report complied by Breaking the Silence, an Israeli group that has spent the eight months since the end of the war, known as Operation Protective Edge, interviewing more than 60 members of the Israeli army, air force and navy, including soldiers and officers up to the rank of major.

But is Pamela Geller really an Israeli spy? As Geller says, "At the end of the day it is Israel. It is Israel. And Hamas must be crushed, eradicated... I hope cooler heads prevail and they wipe out that nest of Islamic terror (Hamas.)" Geller claims those living in Palestine today are nothing but Arab invading and occupying Jewish holy land.

Geller claims, "The IDF is the most benevolent army in the world... (and) It all about the Jews, the Jews, the Jews, the Jews." All the while she calls the President of the United States "the Antichrist." Geller wants to divide and draw Americans into her war on Islam and gain their unconditional support for Israel. And apparently, some seem to have fallen for her rhetoric and are repeating whole sentences and paragraphs of Pamela Geller’s insanity.

Pipes and Geller are ciphers for Israeli intelligence and propaganda elements and provide a clear link between Breivik and Mossad, which is under orders to stage false flag attacks to garner support for Israel against Palestine, Cyprus and Norway being the two most recent examples of Mossad-staged attacks.

“Anything still there is as good as dead”

We entered a neighborhood with orchards, which is the scariest. There were lots of stories going around about being surprised by tunnels or explosive devices in these orchards. When you go in you fire at lots of suspicious places. You shoot at bushes, at trees, at all sorts of houses you suddenly run into, at more trees. You fire a blast and don’t think twice about it. When we first entered [the Gaza Strip] there was this ethos about Hamas – we were certain that the moment we went in our tanks would all be up in flames. But after 48 hours during which no one shoots at you and they’re like ghosts, unseen, their presence unfelt – except once in a while the sound of one shot fired over the course of an entire day – you come to realize the situation is under control. And that’s when my difficulty there started, because the formal rules of engagement – I don’t know if for all soldiers – were, “Anything still there is as good as dead.

Racist Israeli Policies Target Arabs and Ethiopian Jews

Longstanding Israeli policy is notoriously racist - worse than South African apartheid according to observers familiar with both systems.

Palestinians face ruthless persecution in a nation affording rights to privileged Jews alone. They have virtually none whatever.

They're fair game for whatever harshness Israel has in mind - including lawless imprisonment and mass murder.

Ethiopian Jews fare no better - unwanted because they're black. Citizenship doesn't matter. Persecuting them is standard Israeli practice.

Coalition Dropping US-Made Cluster Bombs on Yemen

The Saudi-led bombing campaign against rebels in Yemen is using U.S.-supplied cluster munitions, endangering civilians and violating an international arms treaty, Human Rights Watch warned on Sunday.

According to the group, there is "credible evidence" that cluster bombs have been used in recent weeks as part of coalition airstrikes in Yemen’s northern Saada governorate, a Houthi stronghold that borders Saudi Arabia. Through analysis of satellite imagery, Human Rights Watch charges that the weapons landed on a "cultivated plateau, within 600 meters of several dozen buildings in four to six village clusters."

Amnesty International report just more pro-Israel propaganda

Amnesty International (AI) is at it again. The Western-based human rights organization says the armed wing of the Palestinian resistance against Israeli aggression has committed war crimes against Israeli and Palestinian citizens alike. The timing could not be more perfect for an Israeli propaganda campaign against its Palestinian neighbors. Will Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu use the AI report as a justification to launch yet another war in the Gaza Strip or in the West Bank? I could just visualize Netanyahu’s fourth speech to the U.S. Congress if speaker of the U.S. House of Representative John Boehner were to invite him again:

Planning Chaos in the Middle East: Destruction of Societies for Foreign Money Control

If one wonders how a desert-crawling line of Japanese open-back trucks gifted by the US filled with countless irregular fighters in plain view could ever have ever made it overnight to the point where Western military and political leaders are saying “the war against ISIL may be interminable”, one begins to see through the game. ISIL is a construction financed and trained by covert US and oil-king allies that ruins every place it enters, like Syria once the regime began to win the civil war. Al-Nusra/Al Qaeda was not enough. ISIL is a step up in the US-led control of the Middle East by terror, chaos and social devastation. “The Salvador option” was the first name for the post-war death squads in Iraq, but “Islamic State” stirs much more apocalyptic passions pro and con. Best of all, the ruling foreign war machines of the US, Israel, Saudi Arabia and NATO are now far better justified to “fight the barbaric terrorists”. Saudi Arabia with US support is now even projecting the “terrorist” and sectarian “Shiite” labels on the popular uprising of the poor in Yemen against a corrupt US-Saudi puppet government. One object alone is achieved. Peoples and resources of the region can be predated without sovereign social defences or unity of collective life purpose, the ultimate target of every US-led aggression. As long as all evils can be blamed on an ever-shifting Enemy, there is no overcoming recognition.

As Israel Lobby Pushes Full-Access Inspections, US Makes False Claims on Iran Nuclear Deal

Senior US officials have been claiming that Iranian negotiators had agreed in Lausanne to accept a demand that Iran allow the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to inspect any site it considered suspicious anywhere in the country, including military bases. Such a provision would have given Israel license to make an endless series of bogus intelligence claims such as the ones that had been labeled "possible military dimensions" aimed at preventing the lifting of sanctions against Iran.

Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei repudiated the claims that Iran had agreed in Lausanne to such inspections on demand. He declared in a speech on April 9 that the IAEA would not be allowed to inspect the country's military sites "under the excuse of nuclear supervision." Khamenei's speech came the day after the Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan had made it clear that no international inspections of Iranian military sites would be allowed under the nuclear agreement.

Israeli riot police clash with Ethiopian migrants outside Netanyahu's residence

Ethiopian immigrants clashed with Israeli security forces near prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu's home in Jerusalem late on Thursday after a protest against police racism descended into violence.
Riot police equipped with water cannons cordoned off Mr Netanyahu's residence in Balfour Street after around 1,000 demonstrators marched there to voice anger over video footage showing officers beating an Israeli soldier of Ethiopian origin in an apparently unprovoked attack.

The demonstration had begun peacefully outside the national police headquarters in East Jerusalem's French Hill area, prompted by the emergence of a video showing two police officers attacking Demas Fekadeh, a soldier who had received an award for excellence from Shimon Peres, Israel's former president.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ethiopian Jews are sick and tired of their second class status in Israel, and this belligerent event against the Ethiopian IDF member points to the many ways in which they are discriminated against, just for being a different kind of Jew than are the Ashkanazi.

Back in 2013, a scandal arose from Ethiopian Jewish women being given birth control shots without their knowledge or consent. As reported at www.independent.co.uk in January of 2013:

Israel has admitted for the first time that it has been giving Ethiopian Jewish immigrants birth-control injections, often without their knowledge or consent. The government had previously denied the practice but the Israeli Health Ministry’s director-general has now ordered gynaecologists to stop administering the drugs. According a report in Haaretz, suspicions were first raised by an investigative journalist, Gal Gabbay, who interviewed more than 30 women from Ethiopia in an attempt to discover why birth rates in the community had fallen dramatically. One of the Ethiopian women who was interviewed is quoted as saying: “They [medical staff] told us they are inoculations. We took it every three months. We said we didn’t want to.” It is alleged that some of the women were forced or coerced to take the drug while in transit camps in Ethiopia. The drug in question is thought to be Depo-Provera, which is injected every three months and is considered to be a highly effective, long-lasting contraceptive.

And the side effects of this drug?!? As reported http://depts.washington.edu/uwcoe/healthtopics/familyplan/depoprov.html:

Risks It may cause cholesterol and other blood fats to become elevated. The risk of breast cancer may be increased with the use of Depo-Provera. If a pregnancy occurs or is present when taking the Shot, there may be a very small risk of birth defects in the fetus. For some women, estrogen produced by the ovaries is lowered. This change can lead to thinner bones. Side Effects Some women may have: Weight gain Headaches Dizziness Decreased sex drive Irregular periods and bleeding are normal in the first few months. Irregularity can persist up to 12 months.

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable, that the Israeli government would be shooting up Ethiopian Jewish women with this stuff, and without their knowledge and consent!!!!

US Senate approves bill protecting Israeli settlements

The UN Senate approved the Trade Priorities and Accountability Act of 2015 on Wednesday in a move which is clearly designed to protect illegal Israeli settlements built across the occupied Palestinian territories, Al-Quds newspaper has reported. The act is intended to counter boycott and divestment initiatives, including the labelling of goods originating in the settlements. Such activities will now be "against US law and consequently illegal", even though international law deems all settlements to be illegal. One of the senators who worked on the legislation is Ben Cardin of Maryland, a known supporter of Israel.

Media reports said that this law has caused widespread controversy because of attempts by certain senators to link America's deal over Iran's nuclear programme to the approval of several trade acts and agreements with various international interest groups, including Israel's illegal settlements.

ICC rejects Israel's claims of bias in war crimes investigation

The International Criminal Court (ICC) has rejected Israel’s claims that the court may carry out a biased investigation into the Tel Aviv regime’s war crimes during its devastating military aggression against the Gaza Strip last summer.

ICC chief prosecutor Fatou Bensouda told Israel’s Haaretz newspaper on Friday that The Hague-based court will launch an “unbiased” inquiry into the case. The court will consider evidence brought by Palestinians against Israel "independently and impartially without fear or favor," Bensouda said, adding that her "office will be guided by a policy of investigating and prosecuting those most responsible for the commission of mass crimes."

The Israeli regime launched a 50-day deadly war on Gaza last summer that ended in August 2014 with a truce. The aggression left about 2,200 Palestinians, including 577 children, dead and over 11,100 others injured.

His Baltimore congregation counts among its members Sen. Benjamin L. Cardin (D), whom Edwards is hoping to join in the Senate in 2017 as a replacement for retiring lawmaker Barbara A. Mikulski (D).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am getting sick and tired of seeing American candidates ignore American constituents in their rush to bow and debase themselves (and our nation) before Israel. If they love Israel so much, why don't they move there and run for the Knesset?

The people of Iran did not like being under foreign puppet rule. Neither did the people of Cuba, or Chile. Currently the people of Iraq, Libya, Ukraine, and Yemen are trying to oust their foreign puppet rulers. So why are Americans so accepting of the foreign puppets running around DC?

No government can serve two masters, and a government that serves Israel cannot and will not serve the American people. A friend of Israel is no friend of America. In these dark times America needs leaders who will put America first, second, and third!

Kamal Farhan Abbad’s home sits at the edge of the West Bank Palestinian village of Jalud, near Nablus. The view from his window should include rolling hills, olive groves and cultivated lands; instead it mostly features the red-roofed homes and caravans of nearby illegal Israeli settlements.

Abbad’s home is Area C, the 60 percent of the West Bank under full and direct Israeli military control. It is home to 150,000 Palestinians who today are outnumbered by some 370,000 Israelis living in 237 settlements and outposts, which are deemed illegal according to international law.

Here are your rifles. Here are your parachutes. We ran out of the desert camo but here are two bright da-glo orange jumpsuits from the CIA's torture centers.

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 you 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 both splendidly brave with the lives of other peoples' children. Let's see the true measure of your courage and commitment to war.

You first!

And just to keep you honest, please recall that Iran has not initiated a war of conquest against another nation in over 200 years; a sharp contrast to the US and Israel, which these days cannot seem to go two months without invading, drone-striking, or overthrowing someone else's nation!

Israel Spied on U.S. Even Before State Was Founded

U.S. counter-intelligence figures calculate that Israel is the third most active country in spying in and on the U.S. Jonathan Pollard, Larry Franklin, Ari Ben Menashe, and scores of other American Jews who spied for Israel are almost household words in the spy trade. Not to mention Israeli-Americans like Arnon Milchan, who pursued their careers while also lending their hands to Israeli intelligence efforts.

But it’s much less well-known that Israeli intelligence efforts in the U.S. go all the way back to the 1940s, even before the founding of the State. After World War II, Israel viewed the U.S. (and other nations as well) as potential sources for weapons, pilots, and general intelligence information. It posted covert agents to pursue these objectives. One of them was Nahum Ziv, who died recently. In its obituary profile, Haaretz called him, with typical Israeli worship of derring-do, “the Jewish James Bond in New York.”

US wants control of Iran’s natural resources: American writer

The longstanding American and Western aggression against Iran is aimed at taking control of Tehran’s wealth and natural resources, a writer and researcher in Florida says.

Some Republican lawmakers in Congress are aggressively trying to forestall a nuclear agreement that can potentially bring peace instead of bloodshed between Iran and the West, said Walt Peretto.

“There is an underlying agenda here of aggression by the United States and other Western nations in the name of those interests who wish to take de facto control over Iran's money supply and natural resources,” Peretto told Press TV on Friday.

US Republican Senators Tom Cotton and Marco Rubio are attempting to toughen a bill with amendments including adding a requirement that Iran recognize Israel as an independent state as part of any potential nuclear agreement.

"Shimon Peres has committed war crimes and crimes against humanity against [Palestinian] civilians," it added.

Iran Bill in Peril as Hawks Push Deal-Killing Amendments

The bill to give the US Congress “veto power” over the P5+1 nuclear deal with Iran was already a recipe for killing the negotiations. A flurry of amendments aimed at making the bill even more hostile toward diplomacy, however, is setting off a fight and threatens to derail the entire bill.

Senate hawks Tom Cotton (R – AK) and Marco Rubio (R – FL) are driving a series of efforts to force immediate votes on some of those most contentious amendments, including Rubio’s demand that Iran endorse Israel as a Jewish state, and Cotton’s demand that Iran agree to give inspectors unrestricted access to the entire country, and not just its nuclear program, as conditions for the deal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There have been many criticisms I have had about President Obama's policies , as well as those of his predecessor; having said that, the potential for a lasting P5+1 agreement on Iran is an area of agreement between us. It MAY well be the only area on which we agree during his 2nd term of office (BUT - I digress).

But I sincerely wish Tom Cotton and Marco Rubio would retire from their Senate legislative careers, and more to Israel to run for the Knesset.

The fabrication and construction of this bill was, if any legislation ever was, made in Israel, plain and simple.

The Israeli government doesn't want the US and the UN to enter into a peace treaty with Iran regarding its nuclear energy program: the Israeli government wants war, but not a war THEY are willing to have their kids fight. They would highly prefer it to be our kids, American kids, doing the fighting, getting maimed for life, and dying. That is what the Israeli government wants to have happen.

And with this legislation, Senators Cotton and Rubio are putting the needs and concerns of a foreign power over and above the needs and concerns of the Americans they ALLEGEDLY represent.

And to those in Cotton's and Rubio's Senatorial districts; next time, how about finding candidates who will put YOUR needs first, second, and third, and NOT THOSE OF A FOREIGN POWER? With AIPAC money supporting those candidates pledging unwavering fealty to Israel, no matter what the cost to THIS country, I know that will be hard; but it is high time that when American and Israeli geopolitical objectives do NOT converge, that the US government has the right, and the responsibility to "just say no", and go its own way.

Litvinenko Wasn't Poisoned by Putin. He Was Likely Smuggling the Polonium That Killed Him

As we all know Alexander Litvinenko, was poisoned by polonium, a rare radioactive substance, and it was all blamed on Putin of Russia because Litvinenko was a Putin critic. This was the quick line in mass media and it was on all the typical war propaganda channels.

There are many things wrong with the “Putin did it” story. For one there is no motive, even with Litvinenko being a critic of Russia, he was no threat whatsoever to Putin. The man worked with Chechen terrorists and the Israeli-Russian oligarchs. But just assuming that there was a sufficient motive to kill him, think about this: Why would Russia use a very rare, very expensive, and easily traceable radioactive substance to kill him instead of some cheap poison or just shooting him? Why risk smuggling radioactive material into the UK which is an act of war?

Early classic of Palestinian resistance cinema reemerges
Submitted by Sarah Irving on Fri, 05/01/2015 - 12:07

In 2003, young Palestinian artist Annemarie Jacir had spent years trying to trace a group of resistance filmmakers who, in the 1970s and early 1980s, had devoted their talents to their people’s struggle.

Finally, during the 2003 “Dreams of a Nation” film festival in Palestine, she was able to bring together some of those directors and producers and their works. In the case of one 25-minute drama-documentary called They Do Not Exist, it was the film’s first ever screening in Palestine. It was also the first time its director, Mustafa Abu Ali, one of the founders of the PLO’s film unit, had seen his work in two decades.

Now, the film has been made freely available in versions on YouTube or Vimeo.

Israel Festival hit hard by boycott in wake of Gaza assault, director admits

Israel’s flagship annual cultural festival has been forced to curtail its 2015 schedule because last summer’s assault on Gaza and the growing impact of Palestinian calls for cultural boycott are making it harder to attract international artists.

The Israel Festival’s new director Eyal Sher “does not hide the problems that constrained its production,” the Hebrew-language Israeli publication Mako reports.

“This year’s festival was produced with a shortened schedule against the background of Operation Protective Edge,” Sher says, “and had to face, like many cultural and academic bodies in the country, BDS [boycott divestment and sanctions].”

The Israeli Humanitarian Enthusiasm – A Dialectical Perspective

We are familiar with this pattern. Israel is always fast to send its medical aid and rescue teams to remote destinations as soon as the news about a natural disaster hits CNN. Yet, peculiarly, it is the same Israel that inflicts tragedies that easily match the worst natural disasters on its next door neighbours.

How can we reconcile this clear discrepancy between Israel’s humanitarian enthusiasm and the collective lethal ambitions Israeli society inflicts on its Arab neighbours? Why are the Israelis so intent on displaying a global image of ‘caring’ while behaving in a murderous and heartless manner towards their neighbours?

U.S. Navy escorting American ships in Strait of Hormuz amid Iran tension

A Senior Defense Department official confirms to CBS News that U.S. Naval forces have begun accompanying American-flagged maritime traffic in the Strait of Hormuz.

The move is in response to what Washington views as provocative Iranian behavior in the Persian Gulf. Earlier this week Iranian naval vessels reportedly fired warning shots near Maersk Tigris, a Marshall Islands-flagged cargo ship, and detained it and its crew. Iranian officials say the Maersk shipping line owes it money.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So all Israel needs to do is sneak one of their submarines into Iranian waters and fire a shot at one of the US ships (the way Israel attacked USS Liberty) and blame Iran for it (the way Israel initially blamed Egypt for the USS Liberty attack).

Poison pill: Rubio floats amendment to Corker’s Iran bill requiring Iran to recognize Israel’s right to exist

Is there any strategy behind this apart from generating a nice pro-Israel credential for Rubio’s resume that he can show off to GOP primary voters this summer? What I mean is, is there any chance that this somehow improves — or kills — the final deal between the U.S. and Iran or at least puts Obama and the Democrats in a verrrry tough spot in defending it?

Netanyahu moves for greater share of power in Israel

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is busy making attempts for a greater share of power in Israel.

On Wednesday, the premier’s Likud party signed agreements with two Israeli parties, which would give him control of 46 seats out of the parliament's 120, Israeli media outlets reported.

The agreements were signed with the ultra-Orthodox United Torah Judaism (UTJ) and the center-right Kulanu parties.

U.S. pressing France to postpone UN resolution on Palestine

Last week, the student senate at Earlham College, a Quaker liberal arts institution in Indiana, passed a resolution demanding divestment from US companies that profit from Israeli violations of Palestinians’ rights.

The resolution was passed by consensus — requiring the approval of all members of the student government — and targets the college’s investments in Motorola Solutions, Hewlett-Packard and Caterpillar.

Univ. of Illinois protected white supremacist, but not Steven Salaita, report finds

Salaita was fired last August as he was about to take up a tenured faculty position in the American Indian Studies program at the Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) campus, because of tweets criticizing Israel’s attack on Gaza that administrators deemed lacked “civility.”

By doing so, the university violated the AAUP’s long-standing and highly influential principles on academic freedom and tenure, the report concludes.

The AAUP report confirms – based on precedents dating back to 1962 as well as generally accepted practices applied to the facts of this case – that the university’s decision constituted a “dismissal” of Salaita and not a mere withdrawal of a job offer.

Salaita was therefore entitled to full protections of his academic freedom and to due process, all of which the university violated.

National park zoning used as pretext for ethnic cleansing of East Jerusalem

The Totanji family live beside a grassy valley that extends to the walls of Jerusalem’s Old City. In 2000, Israel’s Nature and Parks Authority designated much of Wadi al-Joz and the surrounding area as belonging to the expansive Tzurim Valley National Park.

The move has placed the 17,000 Palestinians living in Wadi al-Joz in a perilous situation. The Israeli authorities may decide to destroy their homes at any time.

Under the deal struck by Kawar, locals may seek to have 12 houses on Imru al-Qays Street rezoned so that they are no longer included in the national park. To do so, they would have to hire an engineer at an estimated minimum cost of $50,000, according to Kawar.

The residents have been told that an engineer’s assessment could take three months to complete. The assessment would then have to be submitted to the Israeli-controlled Jerusalem Planning Committee.

When Israel would give up the bomb

A 1987 Pentagon document declassified in February unequivocally declares that Israel's nuclear weapons programme was then at the stage the US had reached between 1955 and 1960. It also says Israel had the potential to develop hydrogen weapons.

The document was released just days before Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made his highly controversial speech to a joint session of Congress in which he argued why Iran had to be stopped from getting the bomb.

As the only nuclear power in the region, Israel has an unequalled strategic advantage. There doesn't appear to be any scenario in which Israel would willingly give up a nuclear arsenal that it still refuses to even confirm exists.

Russia impinges on Israel's right to bomb Iran

American neocons are in a lather over Russia’s decision to go ahead with the sale of anti-aircraft missiles to Iran. The apparent outrage is that Iran thinks it has a right to protect its citizens from Israel’s right to launch airstrikes into Iran’s territory, as ex-CIA analyst Ray McGovern explains.

US Congress c'ttee approves Israel tunnel detection aid

Following reports of continued tunnel digging in the Gaza Strip after Operation Protective Edge, the US Congress has decided to initiate a joint US-Israel R&D program for the development and testing of technologies to combat the threat of the tunnels.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Because those people of Gaza should just accept their starvation and not try to bring in food, medicine, or building materials with which to repair the bomb damage from last summer!

FLASHBACK 2010 - David Cameron: Israeli blockade has turned Gaza Strip into a 'prison camp'

David Cameron used a visit to Turkey to make his strongest intervention yet in the intractable Middle East conflict today when he likened the experience of Palestinians in the blockaded Gaza Strip to that of a "prison camp".

Although he has made similar remarks before, his decision to repeat them on a world stage in Turkey, whose relations with Israel have deteriorated sharply since it mounted a deadly assault on the Gaza flotilla, gave them much greater diplomatic significance.

Cameron's comments, in a speech to business leaders in Ankara, prompted the Turkish prime minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, to issue another strong condemnation of how Israel dealt with the flotilla.
