George Galloway at BBC Question Time

BBC Question Time with guest George Galloway was an excellent opportunity to witness and assess, the vile, violent and ruthless Zionist community living in our midst. The Jews who heckled Galloway yesterday may have lived in this country for generations, but they have clearly failed to adopt British manners or the spirit of democracy into their behaviour.

MP Galloway went out of his way to distinguish between Israel and Zionism on the one hand, and Jews, Judaism and Jewishness on the other. However, the North London Jews in the hall made it clear that this distinction didn’t apply to them. They made it obvious that, for them, Israel is the ‘Jewish State’ and being Jewish, Israel is their State.

Guardian Executive Editor Jonathan Freedland repeated the exact same line, he asked Galloway to exercise responsibility and not to criticise Israel for what it is because the Jews are sensitive and fearful. For Freedland, the continuum between the Jew and Israel is undeniable.

The ugly truth about Israel’s actions in Gaza

What a huge diplomatic achievement: Israel has succeeded in getting the Canadian law professor William Schabas to resign from his post as head of a UN inquiry panel into potential war crimes in Gaza.

Through persistent surveillance, Israel’s intelligence and propaganda branches revealed that Schabas had once received a $1,300 fee from the PLO. Conclusion: he sold his soul to the devil. The ref sucks. Q.E.D.

One needs a great deal of chutzpah and arrogance to dig anew into the pasts of Israel’s critics in an effort to assassinate their character, as in the case of Richard Goldstone, merely because they dared to criticize the state. As far as Israel is concerned, the fate of anyone who criticizes the country is sealed. He’s an anti-Semite, anti-Israeli, greedy or driven by ulterior motives.

Israel suspends 3 diplomats over anti-Netanyahu tweets

Israel has ordered the immediate suspension of three diplomats for publicly criticizing the policies of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman.

Israel's Ambassador to Switzerland Yigal Caspi and two other diplomats were suspended on Wednesday for behavior deemed “unacceptable” and unbefitting their profession, Lieberman said on Thursday.

The diplomats held posts in Switzerland, India and Jerusalem (al-Quds), Israeli media reported.

‘Blood Diamonds’ and Israel’s Diamond Export Industry

In November, members of the Kimberley Process (KP), meeting in plenary in South Africa, squandered what was probably their last good opportunity to ban the sale of all blood diamonds, including cut and polished blood diamonds which are an important source of funding for the nuclear armed regime in Israel which stands accused of the crime of apartheid, war crimes and crimes against humanity.

The governments with a vested interest in the diamond industry, that set up and control the KP, failed to amend the definition of a “conflict diamond” which is restricted to “rough diamonds used by rebel movements or their allies to finance conflict aimed at undermining legitimate governments”. All other diamonds associated with human rights violations evade the KP regulations.

Israeli Gaza War Crimes Investigation

International human rights law expert Professor William Schabas was appointed to chair a three-person panel. His special focus is genocide.

On January 30, Israel's Geneva-based UN envoy, Eviator Manor, outrageously accused him of a "blatant conflict of interest."

A typical Israeli stunt. Demanded his immediate dismissal. Months earlier, Israel refused to cooperate with HRC's investigation. Outrageously called it a "kangaroo court" proceeding.

Poll: Netanyahu should be investigated for nuclear weapons tech smuggling

[ Editor’s Note: Articles are already coming out that Bibi has overplayed his hand, and AIPAC’s, gambling on a show of power by doing an end run on White house executive control of foreign policy.

They have put themselves openly on the firing line and I urge all to take full advantage of this golden opportunity.

Everyone should start planning to put your own Congressmen and Senators under the gun for defending their history of bending over for the AIPAC lobby.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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. I think every member of the US Government who is a 'friend of Israel' ought to be loaded onto a plane and flown there non-stop, one-way, and never allowed back. In these dark times America needs leaders who will put America first, second, and third!

Bibi’s speech to Congress boomerangs

In the past week Dermer, Netanyahu and Boehner have overcooked this dish until it’s ruined. Instead of enlisting Democratic senators to support new sanctions on Iran, the Israeli-American scandal had the opposite result. Netanyahu managed to do the impossible: He helped Obama rehabilitate his relations with his party members in the House and Senate.

The 10 Democratic senators who were considering supporting the sanctions are now toeing the White House’s line. The new legislation was put in the freezer until after the Israeli elections. Nancy Pelosi, minority leader of the House of Representatives, called Netanyahu and suggested reconsidering delivering the speech, and a group of congressmen started petitioning members for a letter calling on Boehner to put off his invitation to Netanyahu until April, when the prime minister may no longer be politically relevant.

On Monday February 2nd, I returned to Nottingham to answer critics who accused me of all sort of things…

First, I went to Five Leaves Bookshop to confront my defamer Ross Bradshaw who led the campaign against me in Gedling ten days ago. Bradshaw gave rather feeble and defensive responses. I’ll soon publish a video of this discussion.

That night I presented my thoughts and addressed the accusations made against me. The event was filmed and the video is posted below. My opponents had been invited to join the event and debate me but they failed to show up.

How a war criminal can veto aid to Gaza

Has an Israeli war criminal been given a veto on what aid may enter Gaza?

Earlier this week, I wrote about how Yoav Mordechai, a major-general who took part in the 2009 attack against Gaza, had been invited to the European Parliament. Following complaints by Palestine solidarity activists and some of the parliament’s own members, Mordechai’s scheduled appearance was cancelled at the last minute yesterday.

He did, however, meet representatives of the European Union’s 28 governments.

It is both grotesque and logical for these diplomats to host Mordechai.

Dozens of European parliamentarians call for end to EU-Israel treaty

A group of sixty-three members of the European Parliament (MEPs) from across the five biggest political blocs in the parliament have called on European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini to suspend the EU-Israel “association agreement.”

The association agreement facilitates largely unrestricted trade between the EU and Israel, allowing Israel to participate in a wide range of the EU’s programs. It also permits Israeli arms companies to receive EU funding.

The MEPs argue that allowing the agreement to stay in place despite Israel’s recent massacre of Palestinians in Gaza “sends Israel the message that its violations of basic principles of human rights will be tolerated.”

Friedman Spreads Anti-Semitic Libels About Netanyahu Speech

Though the argument can be viewed as just one more spat promoted by an administration with an axe to grind against Netanyahu, with the talk of Democrats, even Vice President Biden, prepared to boycott the event because they see it an as an effort to aid Republican efforts to discredit President Obama’s foreign policy, the potential for real damage is no longer theoretical. But the most troubling development is not the ongoing arguments about whether the prime minister has committed a blunder. Rather, it is the willingness by some to use it to stoke anti-Israel libels. That’s the upshot of the latest column from the New York Times’s Thomas Friedman who claims Netanyahu’s speech will be seen as an attempt to force the U.S. into a war with Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This article is damage control for Netanyahu by playing that well-worn "anti-Semite" card, but the fact is that Boehner and Netanyahu stumbled badly, putting Israel's control over the US Congress on full public view.

Facebook Shut Me Down

The important thing is that Israel is on the defensive. Israel is trying to change the subject and is failing miserably. The Israeli military is weak. It is no more than a brutal, over-armed, over-financed and overly confident terror organization. The legitimacy of the IDF is being put to question by everyone except for the greedy dealers who provide it with weapons. Israeli politicians and army commanders, when from time to time they lift their heads out of the sand, see a grim sight and they are worried.

PALESTINIANS HAVE A VOICE BUT NOT A VOTE

Israel pretends its society is a normal, US-style melting pot, but there are only two problems – there is nothing remotely “normal” about Israeli’s societal composition and, furthermore, the pot’s ingredients, by policy design, have yet to melt. The destructive societal divisions amongst Israel’s population shines through during every election; this time around is no different. While Israel’s nearly five-decade military occupation of Palestinians is slowly, but surely, ripping Israel out of its global comfort zone, not one electoral contender has peeped a word about how the occupation will come to an end.

Democrats Threaten to Boycott Netanyahu’s Speech to US Congress

With the relationship between President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu at an all-time low, many top Democrats may skip an address by the Israeli leader when he visits Washington next month.

Pressure Grows to Delay or Drop Bibi’s Speech

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been “reaching out”, as the New York Times delicately puts it, to Democratic leaders in the U.S. Congress who were blindsided by Republican House Speaker John Boehner’s invitation to Netanyahu to address Congress March 3.

Netanyahu’s office confirmed Thursday, according to the Times, that the Prime Minister had called Democrats and “other friends” in Congress in recent days, and that he “reiterated that the survival of Israel is not a partisan issue.”

On Israel’s Mythic History

From the beginning the official Israeli narrative has followed a very simple script: A homeless and persecuted people, the victims of pogroms and genocide, asked for and were granted a homeland in the land that was taken from them nearly two thousand years ago.

Promising that it would “ensure [the] complete equality of social and political rights to all its inhabitants irrespective of religion, race or sex; … guarantee freedom of religion, conscience, language, education and culture; … safeguard the Holy Places of all religions; and … [would] be faithful to the principles of the Charter of the United Nations” (source: The Declaration of the Establishment of the State of Israel, May 14, 1948), it was a narrative that most people supported and most people believed. After all, the Israeli leadership sounded sincere, so why wouldn’t they be?

US Denies Israeli Claims About Iran Nuclear Negotiations

An unnamed “senior” US official is being quoted in the Jerusalem Post tonight rejecting claims made earlier today by a similarly unnamed Israeli official about the ongoing P5+1 nuclear talks with Iran.

The Israeli official claimed that President Obama has conceded to “80 percent of Iran’s demands” on the nuclear talks, though it was unclear what those demands actually were.

The US official insisted the claim was “complete nonsense,” though he similarly provided no insight into where the talks actually stand, in keeping with the administration’s desire to keep such details secret.

Globalism Wins as Israel Plans “Free Trade” With Putin, Beijing

As the world is increasingly divided up into geographic “regions” under regional regimes cobbled together under the guise of pseudo-“free trade,” Israeli authorities are now quietly working to create what they call “free trade zones” with both the Communist Chinese regime and the Kremlin-dominated Eurasian Economic Union (member countries shown in green). The negotiations, officially announced this week, come as globalist plotters around the world accelerate their now-open efforts to subvert national sovereignty at a regional level — all on the road toward what top officials from Beijing and Moscow to London and Washington, D.C., regularly and openly refer to as their “New World Order.”

The rise of 'pro-Israelism' in American politics

The US-Israel special relationship is acknowledged universally as the unswayable force of politics in the Middle East. The theme is confessed ritually by every US president and Israeli prime minister, who have all claimed, more or less, that "the bond between Israel and the United States is rooted in more than our shared national interests; it's rooted in the shared values and shared stories of our people."

Commitment to this article of faith is a litmus test for anyone hoping to exercise power in American politics. Minor deviations can and do have major political consequences, a fact acknowledged last year by the conservative American commentator Tom Friedman, who disclosed that the first President Bush paid a massive political price for standing up to Israel back in 1990; Bush asserted US foreign policy towards Israeli settlements by conditioning $10 billion worth of loan guarantees on a total cessation of settlement construction. He was not re-elected for a second term.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There were other factors at work in that election. George H. W. Bush was in serious trouble. He had been able to hold the investigation into Iran-Contra at a distance, but he also knew that he would not be able to hold off the White House connection for another four years. So he arranged for the White House to go to the one Democrat he knew would keep the lid on the secret, then Democratic Governor of the state that was the US end of the guns and drugs pipeline, Bill Clinton.

But pissing off Israel didn't help.

Israel claims Iran sanctions a result of Israeli pressure

Israeli Intelligence and Strategic Affairs Minister Yuval Steinitz said on Sunday that the sanctions imposed on Iran were a result of Israeli efforts in this direction, Anadolu agency reported.

The minister also said that these sanctions have nothing to do with the interim agreement with Iran and governments of world powers known as the P5+1.

"Israel is seeking the full end of Iran's nuclear programme, not part of it," Steinitz told Israeli radio.

Professor Sues University of Illinois Over Firing for “Uncivil” Gaza Tweets

A professor who was fired from a tenured position at the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign because of his tweets criticizing the Israeli government’s bombing of Gaza last year has filed a civil rights suit against the University and its top officials, saying that his firing violated his First Amendment right to free speech and other constitutional rights, and basic principles of academic freedom.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In an honest court system this guy would win, because the tweets in question were part of his private life, not his conduct while on campus. Israel's supporters pressured the university into firing him to try to scare other academics into obedient silence regarding Israel in their own private lives. If Steven Salaita wins his case and there is a huge settlement, the floodgates will open and Israel will find itself facing the reality of a nation where freedom of speech is reaffirmed.

BEX ALERT - Support Of Israel Reason House Was Tagged With Swastikas, Frat Says

On Saturday morning – the holiest day of the week for Jews – swastikas spray painted in red on their Jewish frat house were the last thing these brothers expected to wake up to.

“I’m a freshman so I’ve never had to deal with such outward show of hate towards me and my people,” Itai Ofir said.

Ofir and his Jewish fraternity Alpha Epsilon Pi call it anti-Semitism at its worst.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is another obvious hate-crime hoax. The reason is simple. Other than Israel, nobody gives a damn about the Swastika any more! It's ancient history, and more to the point, it is a symbol of the side that lost WW2.

When you were a kid playing cops and robbers, or cowboys and Indians, you wanted to be on the winning side, either the cops or the cowboys. The smaller kids would have to be bullied into playing the Indians or the robbers. That is because people want to be on the winning side. Nobody wants to pretend to be the losers, and were it not for Israel constantly wagging the Nazis for propaganda purposes, they would be fading into historical obscurity which is where they belong.

Israel: promised land for Jews … as long as they’re not black?

At the time, these ‘rescue’ missions were mired in controversy. Hailed by some Zionists as the inevitable homecoming of African Jews to the ‘birthplace’ of Judaism, to others it was a cynical ploy by the Israeli government to alter the demographics of Palestine. The airlifts were, literally, a means of importing Jews to the contested land en masse, no matter where they were from, in an effort to ‘improve’ the ratio of immigrant Israelis to native Palestinians. But now, twenty years on, how well have Ethiopian Jews assimilated into Israeli society? Has their communal story been one of success and full integration or have they been used primarily to boost Israel’s policy of colonising more of Palestine; to provide a ready pool of conscripts for the Israel Defence Forces (IDF); to provide a workforce for low-status manual labour; and to be treated like relative outcasts in the principally white Jewish community of Israel?

A perennial PR theme of the Syrian regime since the civil war and uprising erupted in March 2011 was that the opposition was all Islamist extremists and Al-Qaeda, and that there were no secular or democratic forces involved in the uprising against the government.

On Monday, in an interview with Foreign Affairs magazine, Bashar Al-Assad reiterated this accusation. He also alleged Israel is helping Al-Qaeda in Syria. He said that some Syrians joke, semi-seriously: "How can you say that Al-Qaeda doesn't have an air force? They have the Israeli air force." He claimed that periodic Israeli strikes on Syrian army positions all seemed well-timed to coincide with rebel offensives.

CIA, Israel plotted senior Hezbollah commander's killing: report

The CIA and Israel's spy agency Mossad were behind an elaborate plot to kill Hezbollah commander Imad Mughniyeh in a 2008 car bomb attack in Syria, the Washington Post reported Friday.

Citing former intelligence officials, the newspaper reported that U.S. and Israeli spy agencies worked together to target Mughniyeh on Feb. 12, 2008 as he left a restaurant in the Syrian capital Damascus.

He was killed instantly by a car bomb planted in a spare tire on the back of a parked car, which exploded shrapnel in a tight radius, the Post said.

Death of arms salesman in Saudi Arabia casts suspicions on Israeli company Elbit

An arms salesman with an Elbit Systems US subsidiary has died under mysterious circumstances in Saudi Arabia.

Cristopher Cramer of New Hampshire-based Kollsman died on 15 January after a “three story tumble from the window of the Sahara Makarim Hotel in the city of Tabuk” according to a Fox News report this week. Kollsman is a subsiduary of Elbit’s US branch.

The company told Cramer’s family that he had committed suicide, a claim the family disputed pointing to panicked voicemails and text messages he sent in the hours prior to his death.

According to the Fox report, Cramer texted an associate saying, “I’m at the Marakim tabuk hotel in Saudi. I think something bad is going to happen to me tonight. Please contact state dept ASAP. Bad things were said.” Cramer also left several voicemails with his friend and family attorney “saying he was in danger and to call the State Department.”

UC Davis passes divestment resolution, five other campaigns launched across US

Last night, the student government at the University of California at Davis voted in favor of a resolution to divest from corporations profiting from Israel’s occupation.

In a landslide vote — eight voting yes, two against and two abstaining — the student government at UC Davis recommended that the University of California system’s governing body divest from Caterpillar, G4S, Veolia Environment and Raytheon.

The divestment victory comes just months after the UC Davis administration appeared to be receptive to efforts by the Anti-Defamation League — a leading Israel lobby group — to treat boycott, divestment and sanctions efforts as “hostile events” that the university should deem security threats.

FLASHBACK - Top Israeli archaeologists contest Jewish ties to Jerusalem

Top Israeli archaeologist Israel Finkelstein has denied the existence of Jewish roots in the city of Jerusalem, contrary to Israel’s claims that have prompted continued Judaization of the city.

Finkelstein, a professor at Tel Aviv University, said Jewish archaeologists have failed to unearth historic sites to support some of the stories in the Torah. Among those stories are the Jewish Exodus, the forty-year wandering in the Sinai desert, and Joshua’s victory over the Canaanites.

He also said there was no archaeological evidence that concludes that the alleged Temple of Solomon ever existed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

See also An exodus which was merely a myth

The fact is that the Torah, or Old Testament, was pretty much copied from older stories. There was no such thing as copyright in those days, after all. It is well established that the story of Noah and the Great Flood was lifted from the much earlier Epic of Gilgamesh. There are other examples as well, such as the story of Job. It would be foolish to assume that other aspects of the book were not also copied from other, now lost, sources.

Why Benjamin Netanyahu Lost His Mind

Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in one of his trademark gestures of narcissistic venality, decided to set up an address to the United States Congress without notifying the executive branch of the American government. The maneuver is so unusual that Netanyahu’s former ally and ambassador to the U.S. called on him to reverse course. Even Fox News has questioned him. Jeffrey Goldberg attempts to understand what Netanyahu might have been thinking. “Why doesn’t Netanyahu understand that alienating Democrats is not in the best interest of his country?” he asks. “From what I can tell, he doubts that Democrats are — or will be shortly — a natural constituency for Israel, and he clearly believes that Obama is a genuine adversary.”

Obama has agreed to 80 percent of Iran's demands in nuclear talks, Israeli officials tell Ch. 10

Israeli officials told Channel 10 on Friday that they are convinced the Obama administration has already agreed to most of Iran’s demands in the P5+1 negotiations over the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program.

According to unnamed officials, Washington “has given the Iranians 80 percent of what they want” out of the negotiations, Channel 10 is reporting.

Jerusalem officials appear alarmed at the prospect that the United States will soon strike a deal with the Iranian regime that will leave it with a “breakout point” of months before it can gallop toward the bomb.

Israel has been claiming that Iran is within "months" of having a bomb since the 1980s!

Israeli Center-Left Alliance Looks To Unseat Netanyahu

When Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu dissolved his unwieldy coalition and called new elections last month, he appeared almost certain to be returned once more to office. But a new center-left alliance has surged past his Likud party in the polls, turning the March 17 contest into a toss-up.

After joining forces with former Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni to create a joint grouping they call "The Zionist Camp," Labor Party leader Isaac Herzog is looking, to increasingly many Israelis, like a viable alternative to Netanyahu. He promises to reverse the country's slide toward international isolation and corrosive social inequality.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Between potentially losing the election to this new coalition, coupled with the reality that the P5+1 negotiations with Iran may actually achieve a working treaty with Iran on its nuclear energy program,and the blowback from Netanyahu's planned speech before Congress, we may well see Netanyahu start behaving like a wounded, cornered animal; and nothing is more dangerous than a wounded, cornered animal.

There are only 46 days until the Israeli election, but in those 46 days, Netanyahu could do something militarily desperate in the Middle East, or possibly beyond, to attempt to assure that he retains power when the elections are over.

He may even go so far as to bomb Iran's nuclear facilities; or actually attempt to invade Lebanon, or Syria; only time will tell.

Bibi Netanyahu and the Myth of the ‘Special Relationship’

The Boehner ploy has split the pro-Israel community down the middle, with such stalwarts as the Anti-Defamation League’s Abe Foxman denouncing it as "ill-advised" and former US Ambassador to Israel Martin Indyk – founder of the staunchly pro-Israel Saban Center at the Brookings Institution – saying:

"Netanyahu is using the Republican Congress for a photo-op for his election campaign, and the Republicans are using Bibi for their campaign against Obama. Unfortunately, the US relationship will take the hit. It would be far wiser for us to stay out of their politics and for them to stay out of ours.”

Controversial C of E vicar faces inquisition after linking Israel to 9/11 attacks

A Church of England vicar is under internal investigation after allegedly sharing an article on Facebook which blames Israel for the 9/11 terror attacks.

Reverend Stephen Sizer reportedly posted a link to an article titled, “9/11 – Israel did it” and wrote: “Is this anti-Semitic? If so, no doubt I’ll be asked to remove it. It raises so many questions.”

Sizer has since taken down the FB post, but the Church of England said on Thursday it would investigate the incident.

Angry Man Threatens Students at University of Toronto Scarborough


On Thursday November 6, a 34 year-old man with no affiliation to the University of Toronto furiously entered the Scarborough Campus Students’ Union office after hours. He stole a poster that read WARNING: THIS UNIVERSITY PROFITS OFF ISRAELI APARTHEID AND OCCUPATION. All attempts to calm him down failed. After stealing the poster he drove off, recording the incident with his phone. Campus police filed a report and said to notify them if the man returns. After a couple of weeks we put up another sign. The man came back. He forced his way into the student union. We tried to calm him down and initiate dialogue. The man replied with, “I’ll rip your fucking throat out” and “I have twelve guys on standby ready”—implying that he or other people will be back. He shouted that he use to be a part of the “israeli” military and regularly killed “terrorists”.

Netanyahu speech scandal blows up, and ‘soiled’ Dermer looks like the fall guy

With even AIPAC washing its hands of the speech, it sure looks as if Israel supporters want an exit from this fiasco. Jettisoning Israeli ambassador Ron Dermer or cancelling the speech would seem like a small price to pay in the news cycle next to a spectacle in which leading Democrats are forced to line up against Netanyahu in Washington, even as they file in and out of the AIPAC policy conference and praise Israel to the skies.

Here are the developments. First, the New York Times’ Julie Hirschfeld Davis has a report of unleashed White House fury over the invitation. The story contains the signal that Ron Dermer, the Israeli ambassador, will be the fall guy for the scandal:

‘NYT’ perpetuates myth Israel was ‘fighting for its very survival’ during 1967 war

Yes, Israeli soldiers, like much of the world, believed at the time that Israel faced an existential threat, as Arab armies poised on Israel’s borders while Radio Cairo broadcast bloodcurdling threats. But military and intelligence leaders in both Tel Aviv and Washington knew better.

Consider the testimony of Prime Minister Menachem Begin, a member of the cabinet in June 1967:

“In June 1967, we again had a choice. The Egyptian Army concentrations in the Sinai approaches do not prove that Nasser was really about to attack us. We must be honest with ourselves. We decided to attack him.”

BEX ALERT - Iran Targets Netanyahu Children for Assassination

Iran is encouraging its terror allies to pursue the assassination of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s children by publishing personal information about them, including photographs of the kids lined up in crosshairs, and declaring, “We must await the hunt of Hezbollah.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel is really ratcheting up the propaganda about Iran right now. First, Netanyahu claimed Iran was behind the strike on the convoy Hezbollah claimed credit for, then yesterday Netanyahu raised the ante with the tired canard about Iran wanting to commit genocide against the Jews in Israel (without asking why Iran iosn't harming the Jews in Iran) and now this story about Iran going after his kids.

I would not at all be surprised if Israel attacked Iran's nuclear facilities while Americans are distracted with the Superbowl.

Manny Naftali, 35, says that Bibi and his wife Sarah did not just provide him with a job, primarily as a bodyguard, they also provided him with constant abuse. The former soldier says that the humiliating treatment by Mrs Netanyahu was the worse, and it occurred almost entirely with her husband’s knowledge.

Benjamin Netanyahu Stuns Israel Backers by Embracing Republicans on Iran

Within one week, the fundamentals of the mainstream pro-Israel community have been shaken like never before.

Its centerpiece legislative effort — the drive to impose new sanctions on Iran — has been frozen in place and, more importantly, the notion that support for Israel is a bipartisan issue in American politics has suffered a serious blow.

The source of the setbacks suffered by the organized Jewish community could be tracked down to one event: House Speaker John Boehner’s January 21 invitation to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to speak on Iran in front of a joint meeting of Congress — and Netanyahu’s acceptance of the invitation, by prearrangement — without consulting Boehner’s Democratic counterparts and without telling President Obama about his outreach to a head of state to visit. From that moment, events spiraled downward quickly, leaving the community with more questions than answers and with blame being assigned in all directions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Representative Yarmuth: there are many times when the goals and needs of the Israeli state are not the goals and needs of the American state, or its people; during those times, We the People, including those who elected you, demand your full attention, and support to, the goals and needs of the American people, particularly when they do not coincide with those of the Israeli government.

The passage of these new sanctions by Congress against Iran will be a prelude to war: you, as a logical person, have to understand that.

If Iran is attacked, one of the oldest practicing Jewish communities in the world, from the times of ancient Babylon, may well be obliterated. As an American Jew, sir, how do you feel about that?!? Are these brother and sister Jews merely "collateral damage"?!?

IF the P5+1 is unable to come to agreement regarding Iran's nuclear program, this coming war, most likely to be instigated by Israel, will draw the US in, and probably Russia and China, on the side of Iran.

I would like to politely remind you that at this point in its history, the US military does not have the troop strength; the manufacturing; or money necessary to insure a positive outcome with either Russia or China in a conventional war; and that is what makes the military scenario so scarily dangerous.

Representative Yarmuth, I would very strongly caution all those who may be thinking about advocating for the passage of these sanctions on the following; please be very, very careful about what you wish for as an outcome here. The unintended consequences of such a war could be both horrific... and irreversible.

Pelosi: Netanyahu speech to Congress could wreck Iran talks on nuclear weapons

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s scheduled speech to the U.S. Congress in March could damage the Obama administration’s attempts to broker a deal with Iran on nuclear weapons development, the senior U.S. House of Representatives Democrat said on Wednesday.

“Such a presentation could send the wrong message in terms of giving diplomacy a chance,” said Representative Nancy Pelosi during a news conference on the sidelines of an annual retreat for Democratic lawmakers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a native San Franciscan myself, Congresswoman Pelosi, I am simultaneously cringing, and wondering if you believe you should be congratulated for your magnificent grasp of the obvious.

Congresswoman Pelosi, of COURSE, that is precisely what Netanyahu will attempt to do with his joint address to Congress, then figure AIPAC will take care of the rest of the damage to American diplomacy with their usual basket of tricks. And if he and AIPAC are allowed to get away with sabotaging the P5+1 talks (to which, BTW, Israel is NOT a signatory), here is the probable outcome.

1. It will become painfully transparent, to both Americans and the world, that Israel has a stranglehold on American foreign policy; therefore, the US can no longer be perceived as an "independent, honest broker" in ANY dispute in the world, and will be shunned as a pariah.

2. The Iranian delegation will leave the peace talks permanently, understanding that it is futile to try to broker any deal with the US continuing to be held in Israel's Svengali-like grip.

3. Israel will most probably attack Iran, bringing the US military in on their side. In fact, were I a betting person, I would not bet against the possibility that Israel might attack Iran's nuclear facilities before the P5+1 talks have concluded; Superbowl Saturday, when most Americans are focused on football and food, might be

4. Hezbollah will attack Israel from the North.

5. The casualties on Israeli soil will be far higher than predicted.

6. Russia may well join Iran in their fight against the US and Israel; Russia and Iran have just signed a military "memorandum of understanding" this month.

So, in summation, unfortunately, just because leveraging more sanctions against Iran would be the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly counterproductive thing Congress could do at this time, is absolutely no guarantee they won't do it.

I am sure that those of you in Congress who are heavily invested in stocks in the military industrial complex will be very happy to see more sanctions go down, because, most generally, sanctions are a prelude to war.

Everyone has heard the parable of the boy who cried wolf. Yet, that hasn’t stopped Bibi and others like him from routinely making charges of anti-semitism where none exists.

Je Suis GAZERNICA

August 21, 2006
Israel is on a rampage. It has been raining death and destruction in Gaza for weeks. It pounded Lebanon into rubble. It, with the help of the US , resisted calls for an immediate cease fire. After the UN passed a resolution calling for a cessation of hostilities, it went ahead and carried out a raid in Lebanon , in flagrant and clear violation of the cease-fire resolution, and Israel ’s Prime Minister has said such raids may well continue.

In the West Bank it carried out a raid in broad daylight as late as Sunday August 20 and grabbed from his Ramallah home Mahmoud-al-Ramahi, a senior Hamas member and secretary general of the Palestinian parliament. Just a day before Israeil soldiers swooped in on Deputy Prime Minister Nasser Shaer and seized him from his home, also n Ramallah. Israel presently holds five Palestinian Cabinet ministers and more than two dozen lawmakers. Almost all of Hamas West Bank leadership is now in Israeli custody.

At least the American President had the good sense not to further endanger his relationship with Netanyahu and the Israeli people.

In reviewing Netanyahu’s political ploy, and his ambassador’s duplicitous behavior, it seems fair to ask whether this is really how friends treat friends?

While you may entirely agree with Boehner’s decision to invite Netanyahu to address the Congress, can you possibly not be disturbed that the Israeli ambassador to our country went out of his way to not tell our Secretary of State of his plan to interfere with our foreign policy and seek to embarrass our president in the process?

The Next War In The Middle East Has Begun And Israel Vows ‘To Act Powerfully On All Fronts’

Israel and Hezbollah are at war. On top of everything else that is going on in the world, now we have a new war in the Middle East, and nobody is quite certain what is going to happen next. Israel has been preparing for this moment for more than 8 years. So has Hezbollah. According to some reports, Hezbollah has amassed an arsenal of 50,000 rockets since the end of the Hezbollah-Israel war in 2006. If all-out warfare does erupt, we could potentially see tens of thousands of missiles rain down into an area not too much larger than the state of New Jersey. And of course the Israeli military is also much more sophisticated and much more powerful than it was back in 2006. If cooler heads do not prevail, we could be on the verge of witnessing a very bloody war. But right now nobody seems to be in the mood to back down.

Senate Dems Won’t Back Iran Sanctions for At Least Two Months

Several key Democratic Senators, including Sen. Robert Menendez (D – NJ), have announced they will withhold support for any new Iran sanctions until at least March 24, giving negotiations a chance to continue at least until then.

The March 24 date was picked as the informal deadline for a framework agreement by the P5+1 on negotiations with Iran. The lack of Democratic support essentially makes it impossible that the Senate can override a threatened presidential veto until then.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This delay has absolutely NOTHING to do with the P5+1 negotiations, and EVERYTHING to do with Netanyahu's address to a joint Congressional session in March, right before he addresses AIPAC, where he will do everything in his power to prevent the P5+1 negotiations from succeeding, as will AIPAC

Netanyahu and AIPAC want negotiations to fail; and for the US to attack and "neutralize" its alleged "existential threat" in the region, Iran, just as it did with Iraq; and we can all see, looking through the lens of hindsight, JUST HOW BRILLIANTLY THAT worked out for the US.

The delay is engineered for both Israel and AIPAC to put maximum pressure on Congress to move forward with more sanctions, and cause Iran to walk away from the negotiating table.

Please remember: your alleged Congressional representatives believe that they are infinitely more beholden to Netanyahu and AIPAC than he or she is to the people who actually elected them.

And sometimes, AIPAC can make, or break, a congressional representative; AIPAC and Netanyahu are counting on this, as they apply "leverage" toward more sanctions, and away from negotiations, in the form of a poisonous cocktail of threats, innuendo, and bribes.

In fact, right now, voters who are more than a little upset at this Israeli-sponsored agency's power over Congress (and remember; they do not have to register as a "Foreign Government Agency"), should begin a little social media blitz of their own, something like #Congress, don't drink Israel's Koolade on more Iran Sanctions!!!

Sanctions are almost, invariably, a prelude to war; and Russia and Iran have just inked a mutual military accord. War with Iran will most likely mean war with Russia, and possibly, China.

Is John Boehner a Traitor?

So, why is Boehner's invitation to Netanyahu such a big deal?

First off, it's a huge violation of protocol and massively disrespectful to President Obama and the authority of the executive branch.

It is completely unprecedented for the Speaker of the House, or any member of Congress, to invite a foreign leader to come to the US and speak to Congress without getting authorization and/or cooperation from the White House.

As Guy Ziv, a professor at American University who has studied US-Israeli relations told TPM, "It's unprecedented. It's hitting below the belt. It's taking partisanship to a whole new level."

By inviting Netanyahu to speak to Congress without the authority of the executive branch, Speaker Boehner is badly blurring the lines of national sovereignty, and again massively disrespecting typical protocol.

How Israeli High-Tech Security Firms Are Turning the U.S.-Mexico Border into a “New Kind of Hell”

t was October 2012. Roei Elkabetz, a brigadier general for the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), was explaining his country’s border policing strategies. In his PowerPoint presentation, a photo of the enclosure wall that isolates the Gaza Strip from Israel clicked onscreen. “We have learned lots from Gaza,” he told the audience. “It’s a great laboratory.”

Elkabetz was speaking at a border technology conference and fair surrounded by a dazzling display of technology — the components of his boundary-building lab. There were surveillance balloons with high-powered cameras floating over a desert-camouflaged armored vehicle made by Lockheed Martin. There were seismic sensor systems used to detect the movement of people and other wonders of the modern border-policing world. Around Elkabetz, you could see vivid examples of where the future of such policing was heading, as imagined not by a dystopian science fiction writer but by some of the top corporate techno-innovators on the planet.

Israel’s Ambassador to the US Ron Dermer defended on Sunday Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s planned speech before the US Congress on March 3, just two weeks before Israeli national elections, saying it was the prime minister’s “sacred duty” to present his stance on Iran — a stance sharply at odds with the Obama administration.

United Against Galloway

The BBC is under attack yet again by some Jewish ‘community leaders’ and their caretakers within British politics. This time the British broadcast dared to invite a British MP to participate in the primetime TV show, Question Time.

The Ultra Zionist Jewish Chronicle reports today: “The BBC has been attacked for its decision to invite anti-Israel MP George Galloway to appear on a Question Time panel in Finchley, north-west London.”

Apparently, Mr. Galloway, renown for his sharp criticism of Israel, will be part of the program filmed in the parliamentary constituency with the country’s largest Jewish population next week.

In typical shameless Israeli stooge behaviour, Finchley and Golders Green MP Mike Freer said the BBC’s invitation to the respected MP was “deliberately provocative,” as if intellectual or political provocation were necessarily a bad thing.

It Is Time For Iran To Tell The West ‘Goodbye’

From all appearances, the Obama regime’s negotiations with Iran, overseen by Russia, were on the verge of ending the contrived nuclear issue. An end to the confrontation is unacceptable to the Zionist Israeli government and to their neocon agents in America. The Republicans, a political party owned lock, stock, and barrel by the Israel Lobby, hastily invited Netanyahu, the crazed ruler of both Israel and America, to quickly come to tell the Republican Congress, which the insouciant American voters put in place, how to prohibit any accommodation with Iran.

Netanyahu claims speech to US Congress is ‘anti-Iran strategy,’ not presidential snub

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu defended on Sunday a planned speech to the U.S. Congress about Iran, saying he had a moral obligation to take every opportunity to speak out on an issue that poses a mortal threat to his country.

His visit to Washington in March has opened up a political rift in the United States and has drawn accusations in Israel that Netanyahu is undermining a strategic alliance to win an election due two weeks after the trip.

Briefing his cabinet on the speech to be made on March 3 to a joint meeting of Congress, Netanyahu said his priority was to urge the United States and other powers not to negotiate an Iranian nuclear deal that might endanger Israel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. Prime Minister, this statement is grade-A, select-quality bovine excrement and you know it.

Iran hasn't begone a war in over 200 years; one certainly cannot say that with a straight face about Israel.

You goals are very simple, but amazingly transparent; to neuter the President's foreign policy goals in Iran; to cause Congress to cave to a foreign country in its actions regarding Iran; and to convince the Israeli voters that you still have the US government firmly by the "short and curlies".

And I hope you fail, miserably, because, as you are well aware, additional sanctions against Iran will cause them to leave the P5+1 negotiations. This, may well, cause Iranian legislators to believe that their only course of action is to develop an atomic bomb, and quickly, as a defense against an attack by Israel.

And sir, I will tell you: the American people have no stomach for yet another war in the Middle East to "neutralize" yet another of Israel's alleged "existential enemies", fought and paid for by American taxpayers, because they can see, very clearly, how US military action in Iraq,(not to mention Afghanistan, Libya, and Yemen) have failed catastrophically.

If Israel begins a war with Iran, and pulls the US along with it, you will see an outpouring of pro-peace, anti-Israeli rhetoric in this country the likes of which you have never seen in the history of Israel.

Sir,criticizing the government of Israel when it is doing something absolutely morally wrong is not anti-Semitic, but the absolutely correct action to take, as it would be with any other country with a bloodthirst for starting wars, and expanding territory to which they legally and morally hold no legitimate claim.

Netanyahu and ‘the Big Lie’

With the International Criminal Court’s (ICC) acceptance of Palestine as a member, and its agreement to investigate possible Israeli war crimes during last summer’s brutal bombardment of the Gaza Strip, Israeli Prime Murderer Benjamin Netanyahu seems to be having fits of rage. His puppet, the United States government, has also denounced the Court’s decisions, and Mr. Netanyahu has made the following bizarre statements:

* “It’s absurd for the ICC to go after Israel, which upholds the highest standards of international law. Our actions are subject to the constant and careful review of Israel’s world-renowned and utterly independent legal system.”

* “But this decision is even more preposterous given that Israel is legitimately defending itself against Palestinian terrorists who routinely commit multiple war crimes. They deliberately fire thousands of rockets at our civilians, while hiding behind Palestinian civilians whom they use a human shield.”

Greater Israel: Netanyahu Seeks to Turn US Congress Against Elected American President

The current Congress follows the agenda of AIPAC – the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (a pretentious title for a political lobby group). AIPAC, in turn, is controlled and financed by pro-Israel supporters and they take their lead from the Likud policy agenda of Israel’s Prime Minister, Binyamin Netanyahu.

If this is difficult to believe, then watch Binyamin Netanyahu, in March, as he ‘struts and frets his hour upon the stage’ in an attempt to orchestrate world affairs to suit his own agenda whilst humiliating the elected President of the United States before an AIPAC-controlled Congress to which he (Netanyahu) has been invited to address without prior White House knowledge or approval.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What the author of this article conveniently forgets is that many of Congress' most powerful Democratic leaders are also strong supporters of AIPAC.

And I have an open note to President Obama.

Sir, we disagree on many issues. My arguments, as a Christian pacifist are, generally, logical, and noted with some reasonable degree of precision and documentation.

I abhor ad hominem attacks, as I think they are both "dirty pool", as well as being non-productive.

But there is one thing upon which you and I do agree, mightily, and that is a need for a positive relationship with Iran regarding its nuclear energy program, which the P5+1 group are desperately working to finalize.

It is not accidental that Netanyahu is coming here in March. This is the time of the annual AIPAC conference, and shortly before the Israeli elections.

And THAT, sir, is the point of his addressing both houses of Congress, particularly on the issue of Iran's nuclear program.

IF Israeli voters see that he is able to deter Congress from allowing these negotiations to move forward by placing more sanctions against Iran, causing it to walk away from the negotiating table, it will make him more attractive to them as a political leader.

This is highly dangerous, not only for the people of Israel, but also for the world in general.

But IF Netanyahu is successful in accomplishing this, it will be a complete, and painfully public, geopolitical "neutering" of you and your agenda for the rest of your term in office.

Sir, there have been rumors of your being "furious" at Netanyahu's acceptance of Boehner's invitation to address Congress, and that there "will be costs" to the US/Israeli relationship.

But Sir, precisely what are those "costs" going to be? You need to think about this very carefully, because the only thing Netanyahu understands is hard-ball.

Should Netanyahu's meddling in US foreign policy bring about his desired outcome, the following should happen, and immediately after it happens.

1. All financial and military aid to Israel should stop, and immediately.
2. All US military should be removed from Israel.
3. All US military equipment should be removed from Israel
4. Sanctions should be immediately be placed against Israeli banks and corporations.

But the big issue here, Mr. President, is preventing Netanyahu from trying to influence US foreign policy before that over-ride vote on your veto is taken. Making him know that the above will happen, and that there is no mistake that it will happen, if your veto is overturned.

Because you know what will happen if this veto is not allowed to stand: Israel will go to war against Iran, and drag the US, kicking and screaming, right along with them. Of course, Russia has just signed a military agreement with Iran, meaning that if there is an attack against Iran, Russia might well join the fray on Iran's side.

And in closing this, Mr. President, I would very strongly like to caution you that capitulating to Bibi Netanyahu on this will cause history to judge you harshly as the 21st century's Neville Chamberlain, embracing a "Pax Israelica" which will translate into infinitely more bloodshed in the Middle East, and beyond.

The very stark choice, sir, is yours.

On Wednesday in Tel Aviv, a 23-year-old Palestinian man stabbed and injured as many as 12 Israelis who were riding a public bus during morning rush hour. No deaths were reported, although three people were hospitalized with serious injuries.

U.S. mainstream media coverage of this attack painted a picture of Israeli citizens living in fear of deranged Palestinian terrorists. The media rarely mentioned that Israeli forces have maintained a 48-year military occupation that profoundly impacts and virtually imprisons 4 million Palestinian men, women, and children in the West Bank and Gaza. The media also omitted significant information on Palestinians killed and injured by Israel during the period reported on.

Obama won’t meet Netanyahu during ‘bizarre,’ ‘historic,’ ‘unprecedented’ visit

White House and State Department won’t meet with Netanyahu on his March visit to address both houses of Congress. Emergency Committee for Israel calls this a snub.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I agree with Obama on this one. Netanyahu and Boehner are trying to hijack the AMERICAN Congress to serve Israel's agenda. Obama knows that war with Iran means war with Russia and while a degree of conflict is desired to forestall the rise of the Ruble, all-out war will cost millions of lives and there is the real possibility the US will lose.

Israel, like the bankers, doesn't care who wins or loses so long as their personal wealth and power are elevated in the process. Obama, in his final two years in office and no longer dependent on Israeli support for future elections, seems to be looking at the situation from the point of view of the US, and that is a good thing!

Israel’s Netanyahu Was Imported by GOP to Ensure a War with Iran

Republican House Majority leader John Boehner secretly invited Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to Washington to address Congress and then once it was set up he let Barack Obama know about it.

The reason for bringing Netanyahu is that Boehner wants to craft a super-majority in Congress that can over-ride Obama’s veto of new sanctions on Iran. He doesn’t have enough Republican votes to do so, but if he can get Democrats beholden to the Israel lobbies of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee to join the veto over-ride effort, he might succeed.

Rabaya said he had begun renovation work on the interior of the house some months ago to live there with his fiance, who he is due to marry.

Two other house belonging to the Rabaya family are also slated for demolition, with a court decision expected Friday.

Norman Finkelstein: Charlie Hebdo is sadism, not satire

In Nazi Germany, there was an anti-Semitic weekly newspaper called Der Stürmer.

Run by Julius Streicher, it was notorious for being one of the most virulent advocates of the persecution of Jews during the 1930s.

What everybody remembers about Der Stürmer was its morbid caricatures of Jews, the people who were facing widespread discrimination and persecution during the era.

Its depictions endorsed all of the common stereotypes about Jews – a hook nose, lustful, greedy.

“Let’s say, … amidst all of this death and destruction, two young Jews barged into the headquarters of the editorial offices of Der Stürmer, and they killed the staff for having humiliated them, degraded them, demeaned them, insulted them,” queried Norman Finkelstein, a professor of political science and author of numerous books including “The Holocaust Industry” and “Method and Madness.”

“How would I react to that?,” said Finkelstein, who is the son of Holocaust survivors.

John Boehner invites Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu to address Congress

U.S. House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner invited Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday to address a joint meeting of Congress on Feb. 11.

“In this time of challenge, I am asking the prime minister to address Congress on the grave threats radical Islam and Iran pose to our security and way of life,” Boehner said in a statement.

The invitation came a day after U.S. President Barack Obama said in his State of the Union address he would veto legislation that toughens sanctions on Iran over its nuclear program.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to John Boehner: forgive me, sir, but how in the name of Heaven does Iran pose a grave threat to the lives of Americans, or Israelis, for that matter?!?!?

Iran hasn't started a war in over 200 years, and their negotiators at the P5+1 meetings are working, to the best of the IAEA's understanding, to achieve a meaningful, workable pact with the West on their nuclear energy program.

I would also like to mention that Iran has one of the oldest continuing Jewish populations in the Middle East, and many of them are so contented in Iran, that they have no desire to move to Israel.

I would strongly suggest that you view the video "Don't Tell Mother I'm In Iran", filmed by a charming young videographer, who meets with Jewish members of the Iranian community in Tehran, including a merchant who is himself a member of Iran's Parliament.

Sir, Prime Minister Netanyahu has not been shy on demanding that the US invade Iran and "neutralize" the country for Israel's benefit, without the IDF lifting a finger.

I would, very strongly suggest that if Netanyahu wishes Iran to be "neutralized", that the Israeli military is strong enough to take care of that on their own.

And JUST IN CASE you did not get the memo (as I did, this morning, websurfing the news), Russia has just signed a military pact with Iran. This means that a US invasion against Iran will mean war with Russia.

So sir, do you have the gall to state, bluntly and publicly to the American people, that we have the troop strength, the money, and the manufacturing, to insure a positive outcome to such a conventional war against Russia?!?

Were you telling the truth, I don't think you would be so brazen as to answer the above questions with an uniquivocal, difinitive "yes".

MEGA PUKE FACTOR 9.9 BEX ALERT - Iran and Hezbollah are planning 'imminent' joint invasion of Israel's northern Galilee region according to 'high level intelligence'

Senior Iranian and Hezbollah figures killed in an airstrike in Syria this weekend were likely planning an 'imminent' attack on Israel, security sources have claimed.

Six Iranian army chiefs died alongside five Hezbollah militants after an Israeli helicopter fired rockets at a convoy in the Golan Heights region on Sunday.

Among those killed was Iranian General Mohammed Allahdadi, as well as commander Abu Ali Tabatabai, who is known to have worked with both Hezbollah and Iran.

Today Major General Eyal Ben Reuven, a former deputy head in the Israeli Defense Forces, accused the senior military figures of meeting to plot an attack on Israel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

TRANSLATION: Israel is about to attack someone "in self defense."

1948 Palestinians stage general strike

Israel’s large Arab minority closed shops and schools from the northern Galilee to the southern Negev desert Tuesday as part of a daylong strike to protest against the death of two Arab men in incidents involving Israeli police.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Which makes the timing of this stabbing incident in Israel suspicious.

Boehner invites Israeli PM Netanyahu to address Congress

House Speaker John A. Boehner said Wednesday he’s invited Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to speak to a joint session of Congress in February.

“In this time of challenge, I am asking the prime minister to address Congress on the grave threats radical Islam and Iran pose to our security and way of life,” Mr. Boehner said. “Americans and Israelis have always stood together in shared cause and common ideals, and now we must rise to the moment again.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The last time Netanyahu spoke to Congress, members of AIPAC videotaped the assembly, and anyone not standing and cheering at everything Netanyahu said were cut off from future AIPAC support.

All hail free speech – except when it’s against Israel

None of this was spelled out by the veteran correspondent, who deleted his twitter account shortly afterwards and according to this source does not appear to be willing to elaborate beyond his immediate resignation, but a string of tweets between him and a well known israeli propagandist show Clancy’s obvious impatience with what he clearly sees as crass israeli attempts to use PR to derail Palestinian efforts at self-determination. The fact that it comes immediately after his tweet about Hebdo remains a mystery.

Lebensraum in Palestine

The Security Council determines that the policy and practices of Israel in establishing settlements in the Palestinian and other Arab territories occupied since 1967 have no legal validity and constitute a serious obstruction to achieving a comprehensive, just and lasting peace in the Middle East. – United Nations Security Council Resolution 446, 1979.

Israel’s very own history of eugenics

In the 1950s, waves of new immigrants swept into Israel. To the dismay of the country’s Ashkenazi leaders (those originating from Europe and the US), the great majority were from Arab countries. Levi Eshkol, a later prime minister, expressed a common sentiment when he called them “human rubbish”. Israel, deprived of “good-quality” Jews, was being forced to bring to its shores Arab Jews, seen as just as primitive and dirty as the Palestinians whom Israel had recently succeeded in ethnically cleansing.
