The Great Holocaust Mystery:Reconsidering the Evidence

Traditional historians claim to know about this crime in great detail. They have documents, photographs, and hard evidence. They have incriminating testimony from key Nazis. Some of the gas chambers have survived. And they have innumerable Jewish eyewitnesses. According to some, it is the “most well-documented event in history.”1

U.S. levels new Iran sanctions as nuclear talks in limbo

The United States imposed a new round of sanctions on companies doing business with Iran on Friday, alleging that they’re helping Iran build its nuclear program, support terrorism and evade sanctions.

UPDATED GUIDELINES FOR THE ACADEMIC BOYCOTT

PACBI urges academics, academic associations/unions, and academic — as well as other — institutions around the world, where possible and as relevant, to boycott and/or work towards the cancellation or annulment of events, activities, agreements, or projects involving Israeli academic institutions or that otherwise promote the normalization of Israel in the global academy, whitewash Israel’s violations of international law and Palestinian rights, or violate the BDS guidelines.

WHAT THE WAR IN GAZA COST THE US TAXPAYER

They make it sound like it was their own money that was spent on the slaughter ….

“The direct cost of the operation stands at more than $9 billion,” the defense minister said, adding that dealing with terror is “expensive,” and that even if the “defense budget would be tripled it would still not be a waste of money.”

Israel to lobby in Washington for tough line on Iran

As he prepares to lead an Israeli delegation to Washington in an effort to pressure the White House on Iran, Strategic Affairs Minister Yuval Steinitz says that unless there is a “dramatic development” in nuclear talks between Iran and the P5+1, Israel won’t be able to accept the outcome of the negotiations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It would not mean anything if Israel did accept the outcome. Israel has already violated the agreement with Gaza!

GREATER ISRAEL: The Land of Israel’s future borders as given by the Torah…can’t wait for this

Genesis 15:18 reads: “To your descendants I give this land from the River of Egypt to the Great River, the river Euphrates.”

Moses announces to the Jews in Deuteronomy 11:24, that “Every place where you set the soles of your feet shall be yours. Your borders shall run from the wilderness to the Lebanon and from the River, the river Euphrates, to the western sea.”

Former Mossad Officer Implicates Israel in 1983 Marine Barracks Bombing

In 1982, Israel invaded Lebanon and President Reagan sent 1800 Marines to Beirut to act as peace keepers. Israel resented the interference and used the US presence to commit a False Flag operation that killed 242 Marines.

The purpose was to align the US with Israel and create animosity towards the Arab world.

Palestine: Israeli Army Demolishes Orphanage Dairy Factory in the West Bank

Israeli soldiers invaded on Tuesday, at dawn, the southern West Bank city of Hebron, and initiated the destruction of a dairy factory that belongs to the Islamic Charitable Society for Orphans, in the city.

Eyewitnesses said that dozens of soldiers, accompanied by armored bulldozers, broke into the dairy factory in the ar-Rahma neighborhood, east of Hebron, and declared the area a closed military zone, preventing journalists and residents from entering it.

Sheikh Hatem al-Bakri, head of the administrative board of the Islamic Charitable Society, said the factory provides the needed means for caring for the orphans in the Hebron District.

“What is happening is an attack on the orphans themselves: several months ago, the army confiscated various machines with an estimated monetary value of $2 million,” al-Bakri told the Maan News Agency. “This factory is essential for the services, and charitable aid we provide.”

Israel Prepares for the Next War

Hopefully Israel will take advantage of the ongoing cease fire with Hamas to hammer out a comprehensive peace plan with the Palestinians. However, if the past is any indication, nothing of the sort will take place.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Netanyahu just announced that Israel will NOT be sending a delegation to continue negotiations in Egypt, as was agreed to in the cease fire.

Israel Raises Alarm Over Islamist Militants On Its Frontiers

Israel's frontier with Syria, where militants have kidnapped 45 U.N. peacekeepers, has become a magnet for Islamist activity and Israel itself is now a target, the defense minister and security analysts said on Tuesday.

The Nusra Front, an al-Qaeda-linked group fighting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, has established a major presence in the region, analysts said, and is poised to carry out attacks across the barren borderlands where Syria, Israel and Jordan converge.

Iran meanwhile is seeking to expand its influence in the region via its support for Assad and the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah, all of which are allied against the Sunni insurgency confronting Assad, Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon said.

US urges Israel to reverse plan to seize Palestinian land in the West Bank

The United States urged Israel on Monday to reverse its latest plan to seize Palestinian land in the Bethlehem area of the occupied West Bank.

“This announcement, like every other settlement announcement Israel makes, planning step they approve, and construction tender they issue, is counterproductive to Israel’s stated goal of a negotiated two-state solution with the Palestinians,” a State Department official said.

“We urge the government of Israel to reverse this decision.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh, sure, "urging" Israel to change their decision is going to work...when pigs fly.

It is obvious to any sentient being that Israel's goal here is to take all of the West Bank and East Jerusalem until there is no more land which can possibly be declared a Palestinian state, and kill as many Palestinians in the process as Israel thinks they can get away with.

And the one thing the US government could try to do to "modify" Israel's behaviour - a complete stop to any financial and military any aid whatsoever - the US government will not do.

One has to wonder just what Israel has on US governmental officials, and how damaging that intel is, which keeps this from happening.

Israel announces construction of biggest settlement in 30 years

Almost 1,000 acres of land near Bethlehem have been seized by Israel to build an estimated 1,000 new homes on Palestinian farmland

Coupled with Netanyahu now refusing to send a negotiating team to Egypt, which was a condition of the cease fire, tells us that Israel as always will go on grabbing what they want and killing all who resist.

Jewish Terror In our Midst

The Daily Telegraph reported today that Neil Masterson, who was charged with a religiously aggravated assault on George Galloway, is a Jewish carer and not a ‘Catholic’ as the Jewish media insisted in the last few days.

Former BBC manager Neil Masterson, 39, is alleged to have shouted about the holocaust as Mr Galloway posed for pictures with members of the public in Golborne Road, Notting Hill.

Mr Galloway was taken to St Mary's Hospital, Paddington, for treatment on Friday and kept in hospital overnight.

The court heard yesterday that Masterson attacked the MP because he felt that George Galloway was an enemy to Judaism.

Prosecuting, Tom Gill said: "He said he carried out the attack because he felt the victim was enemy of Judaism."

Mr Gill said that Masterson told the police: "I didn't want him to think I'm scared, Galloway is Anti-semitic and I am Jewish."

Report: Netanyahu says will not send delegation to Cairo talks

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu does not plan to send a delegation for negotiations in Cairo as stipulated by the ceasefire agreement that ended seven weeks of fighting in Gaza, Israeli media reported Monday.

Channel 10 said in a TV report that Netanyahu told his cabinet in a closed session that he would not send as agreed a delegation to Egypt for further talks regarding a seaport and airport in Gaza, the release of Palestinian prisoners, the demilitarization of Gaza factions, and the delivery of bodies of Israeli soldiers presumed held by Hamas, among other unresolved issues.

Netanyahu spoke proudly to his cabinet about the Gaza offensive, saying Hamas had not achieved any of its demands, according to the report.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So Israel has already violated the terms of the cease fire, and will no doubt now try to pin the blame on HAMAS.

Jews, Hollywood, and Gaza: Some Thoughts

In the world of entertainment, there are few recoveries.

Why the silence over the assault on George Galloway?

Last Friday evening a British MP suffered a vicious assault on a London street. George Galloway, a 61-year-old, six-times-elected politician was beaten up for three minutes by a brutal and determined assailant in broad daylight, and was admitted to hospital as a result.

There are grounds for assuming that the motive was political, and the assault occurred due to Galloway’s criticism of Israeli actions in the Middle East. The assailant was reportedly shouting comparing Galloway to Hitler, and shouting about the Holocaust.

There is something very disturbing about the response to this event by the mainstream British political establishment. Mr Galloway has received no public message of sympathy from a single MP from any party – nothing from Speaker Bercow, from the Prime Minister, or from any of the other elected political leader.

ISRAELI TWO STATE SOLUTION ~~ ONE JEWISH STATE IN THE EAST, THE OTHER IN THE WEST

Some 400 hectares (988 acres) in the Etzion settlement bloc near Bethlehem were declared “state land, on the instructions of the political echelon” by the military-run Civil Administration.

Israel Radio said the step was taken in response to the kidnapping and killing of three Jewish teens by Hamas militants in the area in June. The notice published by the military gave no reason for the decision.

Hmmm …. I thought that was the reason for the genocide in Gaza

Perpetual war, indefinite detention, and torture: The U.S. and Israel’s shared values

The United States and Israel have "shared values" but not when it comes to upholding democracy and the rule of law. Their shared values are perpetual war, torture, indefinite detention, and military courts. Guantanamo is a perfect example of this. Both states have been in a state of perpetual war for quite some time with Israel against the Palestinians since its founding in 1948 while the U.S. can trace back its war to its founding in 1776 and the colonization of Native American lands. Today's global war on terror is the latest chapter in that saga. Under perpetual war, the United States and Israel can justify a litany of draconian policies, such as indefinite detention, torture, and extrajudicial killing.

Newly declassified documents reveal how U.S. agreed to Israel's nuclear program

The Obama administration this week declassified papers, after 45 years of top-secret status, documenting contacts between Jerusalem and Washington over American agreement to the existence of an Israeli nuclear option. The Interagency Security Classification Appeals Panel (ISCAP), which is in charge of approving declassification, had for decades consistently refused to declassify these secrets of the Israeli nuclear program.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, let me get this straight.

The US government has known, incontrovertibly, since the late 60s that Israel is a nuclear armed country.

And yet, the US government consistently breaks its own law, the Symington Amendment, by continuing to provide financial and military assistance to Israel, even though this law forbids the US government from doing so to any nuclear-armed country which refuses to sign the NNPT, and does not allow for its nuclear facilities to be inspected.

A logical question, then, has to be asked: how can a government which refuses to obey its own laws expect citizens of that country to obey that country's laws?!?

At the moment, the US government appears illegitimate, corrupt, and totally purchased by the corporations which fund election cycles.

Voters are nearly irrelevant, and totally expendable to those in the bowels of Congress.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Which means every President since Johnson has LIED TO YOU about Israel's nuclear arsenal, including Obama himself who evaded the question when put to him by Helen Thomas during his first press conference. And THAT means that every single penny taken from you to give to Israel is a violation of the Symington Amendment to the Foreign Appropriations Act and the Glenn Act, which make it illegal for the US to give aid to any nation in possession of nuclear arms which refuses to sign the NNPT and allow IAEA inspections! When will you have enough of this criminal government in Washington DC?

Israel confiscates nearly 1,000 acres of Palestinian land in the West Bank

Israel on Sunday confiscated nearly 1,000 acres of privately owned Palestinian land near an Israeli settlement south of Bethlehem in the West Bank — a move described by Israeli rights group Peace Now as “unprecedented in its scope since the 1980s."

Settlements built on Palestinian land occupied by Israel, including East Jerusalem, are deemed illegal by the United Nations. Israel’s refusal to halt their construction and expansion has at times arrested the peace process and increased resentment and distrust among Palestinians.

In a statement published on its website, Peace Now condemned the latest land confiscation and said it further damaged the chance of achieving a last peace between Israelis and Palestinians based on a two-state solution.

How the Palestinians Won

Twas not a famous victory – but that’s what the Palestinians of Gaza are celebrating. There was much shaking of heads in the international media when the fireworks burst over that shattered land on Tuesday night. After more than 2,100 dead – about 1,700 of them civilians – and 100,000 wounded, what did they have to crow about? An end to the killing? Peace?

Well, no. In fact, Hamas – the vicious, horrible, terrorist Hamas with whom “we” (as in “the West”, Tony Blair, Israel, the US and all honourable men and women) cannot talk – has indeed won a victory.

#GazaUnderAttack ~~ LESSONS FROM THE WAR

The future of Gaza is still uncertain. Even when you reach agreement with Israel (or with Egypt) there is no guarantee that it will be honored, as happened with the agreements after the previous (2012) war and with the 2011 prisoners’ exchange. Yet Gaza is fighting for liberty…

#OccupyFaceBook

It’s one thing for an Israeli soldier to post his venom on FaceBook or Instagram …. BUT when a Palestinian speaks his piece, that’s a different story …

An Israeli court in Petah Tikva extended the detention of Suhaib Zahida, 31, until Sept. 4, after he was arrested on Thursday for creating a page on Facebook called “the Intifada of Hebron” in addition to leading a campaign for the boycott of Israeli products.

Canadian MP: Palestinians have a right to self-defence

Canadian member of parliament Sana Hassainia reiterated her condemnation of the Israeli massacres in Gaza, saying that condoning Israel's actions against Palestinian civilians is "unfair."

Israel's defense establishment recommends easing Gaza restrictions

Israel's defense establishment will recommend to politicians that they show generosity in indirect negotiations with Hamas when discussing the conditions for a permanent cease-fire, in order to forestall renewed hostilities at the end of September. A senior military source has told Haaretz that it is in Israel’s interest to avoid intense social and economic pressure on Gaza.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Netanyahu will never agree to this, as he is trying to claim that Israel "won" the latest war with Gaza, and any concessions at all will undermine his hallucinations in that regard!

Israel’s Political Firewall against the Truth

In an article published in the September 6th edition of The Palestine Chronicle (“Imagining Palestinians as Equal”) I began with this quote from novelist Aldous Huxley: “The propagandist’s purpose is to make one set of people forget that certain other sets of people are human.” It is the key to separating out what is blatant propaganda and what is fair and honest communication.

The purpose of Israel’s political firewall is blocking out and discrediting the testimony of the people it abuses on a daily basis and their supporters, through using high level elites.

Calls to Fire Minister as Fallout Over Gaza Operation Continues

Senior Likud MK Ofer Akunis calls on PM Netanyahu to fire Tourism Minister Landau for saying Israel 'lost' Gaza Operation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel did lose the Gaza operation, and firing ministers and Netanyahu's proclamations cannot change that. For Israel to be seen as victorious, HAMAS (if not all the Gazans) had to be removed. For HAMAS (and the Gazans) to be seen as victorious, they merely had to endure, which is what they did. Along the way, Israel destroyed their reputation as permanent victim and stands revealed to the world as the aggressor, striking from behind the flimsiest of lies and justifications.

Israel confiscates 1000 acres of Palestinian land south of Bethlehem

Israeli authorities on Sunday announced the confiscation of around 4,000 dunums (1,000 acres) of private Palestinian land south of Bethlehem in the southern West Bank.

Palestinian owners of the land were given 45 days to submit formal objections to the announcement in Israeli courts, otherwise all confiscated lands would automatically become Israeli government property.

Mayor of the nearby Palestinian town of Surif Muhammad Ghuneimat told Ma'an that Israeli forces posted signs in private olive tree orchards in the area warning that they have been confiscated by the Israeli government.

Elizabeth Warren Defends Israeli Shelling of Gaza Schools, Hospitals

The Israeli military has the right to attack Palestinian hospitals and schools in self defense if Hamas has put rocket launchers next to them, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) said last week at a local town hall, according to the Cape Cod Times.

Warren, in defending her vote to send funds to Israel in the middle of its war with Hamas, said she thinks civilian casualties are the "last thing Israel wants."

"But when Hamas puts its rocket launchers next to hospitals, next to schools, they're using their civilian population to protect their military assets. And I believe Israel has a right, at that point, to defend itself," she said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This woman is completely bought, completely naive, or completely insane, or perhaps a combination of all three!!

So, Senator Warren, why not have have an impartial forensics team examine these buildings, and their surroundings, for bombs: I am willing to bet that none will be found, or if they are there, they have been planted by the IDF to "appear" to have been placed their by Hamas.

And Senator Warren, please think a minute, if this process is not completely foreign to you: why would Hamas endanger their women and children by placing bombs in, or near a place of refuge?!?

The coordinates to these shelters were all given to the IDF by the UN to prevent slaughter, and what does the IDF with this information?!?!

Slaughter innocent women and children in a planned, carefully executed genocide, against people who had nothing to do with the fighting.

By making these statements, Senator Warren has put herself firmly on the side of Israeli genocide against Gazan Palestinians; against any true peace deal enabling a Palestinian state to exist, and someone who has "signed on" to the Israeli Government's "Final Solution to it's "Palestinian problem" by executing as many Palestinians as humanly possible.

This woman disgusts me.

#OperationForeverThreat ~~ THE IMMINENT ATTACK ON IRAN THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN

Still, the persistent false narrative that military strikes by either the United States or Israel may follow any potential failure to reach a deal continues to be repeated in the press.

Merhavim Regional Council chief Shai Hajaj said after the meeting that the local leaders were assured the government would provide financial assistance not only to the Gaza-border area, but also to cities and towns up to 40 km from the Strip.

At the meeting, Netanyahu said that “on Sunday we will announce a very generous aid package to Gaza-border residents and later on we will also announce assistance for the entire south.”

Aug 28 09:38

WHO’S AFRAID OF THE BIG, BAD BOYCOTT?

Let’s start with the conclusion: Israeli exports are not affected by the present economic boycott, nor will they be affected in the future. This is not because certain European consumer groups and the like are not trying – it is because the unique nature of Israel’s exports simply does not allow for it. It’s a logical concept on paper, but simply does not hold water in reality.

The most obvious example of how the boycott concept is unsustainable is Israel’s trade relations with Turkey. In 2010, after Cast Lead, and the Mavi Marmara incident in particular, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan (who is now trying to change the laws in his country in order to become something akin to a sultan) demanded a boycott of Israel at every opportunity.

And lo and behold – just the opposite has happened. Trade relations with Turkey, both exports and imports, have jumped dramatically and are now at the highest level – and almost 100% rise since 2009, long before the Mavi Marmara.

In the last few days I have came across several attempts to defame me. I am cheered by each of them. I tend to see these attempts as an acknowledgment of the importance of my contribution to the discourse.

Earlier today I read a clumsy diatribe written by Nick Cooper, a Jewish ethnic campaigner as well as a Klezmer artist from Texas. In his article, Why Other Critics of Israel Won’t Work With Gilad Atzmon Anymore, Klezmer Cooper engages in a Dershowitz like cherry-picking exercise but, instead of exposing me, he conveniently provides us with an example of morbid Jewish Left ideology and tactics.

“These are war crimes,” says father of Gaza family wiped out by Israeli airstrike

An elder cousin daubed the blood that dripped from a wound near Thaer Jouda’s left eye Tuesday afternoon as the nine-year-old lay in a bed in Gaza City’s al-Shifa hospital.

“He’s very good in English,” the cousin said. But Thaer, his face and body lacerated by shrapnel from an Israeli airstrike on Sunday and his right leg amputated at the knee, had little interest in talking.

The bombing, which injured Thaer and his eleven-year-old sister Rahaf, also killed his mother Rawiya (43 years old), his sisters Tasnim (14) and Raghida (13) and his brothers Muhammad (8) and Usama (6).

The five deaths made the Joudas, residents of Tal al-Zaatar in the northern Gaza Strip’s Jabaliya area, one of the hardest-hit of the 91 families counted by the Palestinian Ministry of Health who lost multiple members during single attacks during Israel’s 51-day military offensive.

Elizabeth Warren finally speaks on Israel/Gaza, sounds like Netanyahu

The last time Elizabeth Warren was asked about her views on the Israeli attack on Gaza – on July 17 – she, as Rania Khalek put it, “literally ran away” without answering. But last week, the liberal Senator appeared for one of her regularly scheduled “office hours” with her Massachusetts constituents, this one in Hyannis, and, as a local paper reported, she had nowhere to run.

One voter who identified himself as a Warren supporter, John Bangert, stood up and objected to her recent vote, in the middle of the horrific attack on Gaza, to send yet another $225 million of American taxpayer money to Israel for its “Iron Dome” system. Banger told his Senator: “We are disagreeing with Israel using their guns against innocents. It’s true in Ferguson, Missouri, and it’s true in Israel . . . The vote was wrong, I believe.” To crowd applause, Bangert told Warren that the money “could have been spent on infrastructure or helping immigrants fleeing Central America.”

IN PHOTOS ~~ THE LITTLE DOLLS OF GAZA’S DEAD CHILDREN

Although they have only finished about 1/3 of our representations of the children murdered in Gaza the Granny Peace Brigade brought them to a demonstration organized by Jews Say No at the subway station on W. 96th St. and Broadway yesterday. Jews Say No does this regularly in an effort to engage with the community and discuss what is happening in Israel/Palestine. The reaction to the Gaza children representations was very strong. Many people gave the Grannies a thumbs-up or came over to speak saying they were glad to see them there. Several others were very passionate in their condemnation, screaming, calling the Grannies ignorant and anti-semites, and accusing them of pandering to people’s feelings. For the most part the demonstrators didn’t respond to the attacks. When there is one representation for each murdered child they will be taken to public places around the city and displayed.

#OperationCeasefire ~~ THE WAR THAT WILL GO DOWN IN THE ANUS OF HISTORY

Some wars are recorded in the annals of history, the last Israeli incursion into Gaza will definitely go down in its anus.

Both sides claim victory, yet there is no victor.

Gaza lost over 2,000 innocent civilians including over 250 children. Neighbourhoods, schools, hospitals were totally destroyed by Israel’s indiscriminate bombings. Israel (re)gained complete control of the Strip by giving legitimacy to the illegitimate Mahmoud Abbas.

Where I come from, THAT IS NOT A VICTORY!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I disagree. In order for Israel to be victorious, they had to prevail over Gaza. For Gaza to be victorious, they merely had to endure, which they did. Game, set, and match, Gaza!

'Anti-Semitic filth': Turnbull condemns racist leaflets distributed in Sydney

Malcolm Turnbull has condemned the people behind anti-Semitic leaflets distributed in Sydney this week, saying their actions "gnaw away at the foundations of society".

The flyers, which called for action from "white Australia," were delivered to mail boxes on a predominantly Jewish street in Bondi.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The fact that these were delivered to a predominantly Jewish street in Bondi tells us that this is a propaganda operation to rebuild support for Israel following their public relations disaster in Gaza. Such hoaxes are very common. Over at the Common Dreams website, their webmaster tracked down someone who was posting nasty anti-Semitic posts using multiple identities and it turned out to be a Jewish graduate from Harvard out to "prove" there was anti-Semitism on the internet. My own email continues to be flooded with a similar hoax, identical in content but from multiple sender addresses. Going back in time, there was that professor at Claremont College, Kerri Dunn, who gained press attention when her car was painted with Swastikas and hate speech, only to have witnesses confirm she had done it herself. Then there is the case of George Washington University student Sarah Marshak, who gained national media attention when she reported someone kept drawing swastikas on her dorm room door. The university installed a surveillance camera to watch Sarah's door, but without telling her, and promptly caught Sarah committing the vandalism herself!

Every time Israel commits a war crime, the very first thing they do is replay the tired old WW2, Hitler, Holocaust, anti-Semitic card to try to regain the world's sympathy. With Israel's attempt to portray itself as the victim in the recent attacks on Gaza an epic failure, a renewal of these hoaxes is to be expected. But we have heard Israel cry "Anti-Semitic Wolf" so many times that only a complete moron would fall for it again!

Jewish Harvard Grad Busted for Trolling Blogs with "Anti-Semitic" postings. False flag "Anti-Semitism"!

Beck, a Harvard graduate now a grad student at a midwestern university, created literally dozens of online personas to support his true objective: poisoning online discourse critical of Israel. So if evidence of anti-Semitism wasn’t there, he’d create it himself.

Israel's "Qualitative Military Edge": Blank Checks, No Balance?

This month the Wall Street Journal reported that the Obama administration had slowed the shipment of Hellfire missiles to Israel after it bombed a UN school in Gaza on Aug. 3 with the US-made weapon. The White House has insisted that weapons transfers to Israel have not been suspended or halted, and that the administration is only “taking extra care to look at these shipments.” Yet some analysts understood the unusual decision as a warning message to Tel Aviv about the use of disproportionate force. Whether or not that’s true, it’s no secret that the United States is Israel’s biggest source of military assistance, even if the White House has not been completely aware about the extent of that support.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, in a real way, Israel's defeat in Gaza is also the White House's defeat!

Israel lost the war in Gaza but the struggle for justice goes on

There is one clear reason to celebrate the ceasefire deal Israel and the Palestinian resistance reached today: 51 days and nights of relentless Israeli massacres and destruction have come to an end in Gaza.

With reports that Israel has agreed to reopen Gaza’s borders, Hamas announced victory and Palestinians, especially in Gaza, are celebrating. Among many Israelis, meanwhile, there is a feeling of bitterness and defeat.

“What Netanyahu and his colleagues have brought down on Israel, in a conflict between the region’s strongest army and an organization numbering 10,000, is not just a defeat. It’s a downfall,” wrote Haaretz’s Amir Oren in a stunning admission of how much Israel has been set back.

Israel’s extermination of whole families in Gaza reflects genocidal impulse

Eighty-nine families that existed seven weeks ago in Gaza have been exterminated by Israel.

On Sunday 24 August an Israeli missile tore through the home of Issam Jouda in Gaza’s Tal al-Zatar neighborhood east of Jabaliya without warning, killing Issam’s wife Rawiya and their four children—Taghrid, Tasnim, Usama and ?Muhammad.

According to the Palestinian health ministry , the Joudas were the eighty-ninth family wiped out in Gaza since the Israeli army started bombarding the besieged coastal enclave on 7 July.

Israel, Hamas agree to Egypt-brokered cease-fire

The cease-fire includes an agreement to open border crossings between Gaza and Israel to allow the flow of humanitarian relief, assistance and materials for reconstruction in Gaza, Abdelatty said. Palestinians will also be allowed to fish in an area up to six miles off the Gaza coast into the Mediterranean, up from three miles, he said.

"The deal includes as well the continuation of indirect talks between the two sides here in Egypt to tackle other areas of mutual interest and concerns," he said, adding that those indirect talks will begin within a month. Those discussions will include issues such as building a seaport and airport in Gaza, and Israel's demand that Hamas disarm.

Palestinians reach long-term truce with Israel: Officials

According to Palestinian sources, the Palestinians and the Israelis agreed to a permanent ceasefire on Tuesday.

"The contacts that have been going on have agreed a permanent ceasefire, a (deal to) end the blockade and a guarantee that Gaza's demands and needs will be met," media quoted a senior unnamed Palestinian official as saying.

Meanwhile, Mussa Abu Marzuk, a senior official from the Palestinian resistance group Hamas, said the truce marks a victory for the Palestinians. He added that the truce is expected to be officially announced in the Egyptian capital Cairo.

The developments come as previous temporary ceasefires have failed to produce a deal between the two sides.

The contentious subject at the Cairo talks has been the issue of the Israeli blockade of the impoverished territory.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sounds good, but for two problems. This article says "Palestinians" rather than HAMAS, and may represent an end-run around HAMAS by Israel which was trying to make a deal with Abbas. HAMAS is not bound by any deals Abbas makes.

Second problem; Israel never keeps their agreements.

Gaza Under Siege: Israel Destroys Hospitals, Denies Entry to Doctors and Medical Aid

Dr. Swee Ang Chai: All the authors and signatories fear the worse at the beginning of this crisis which erupted in early July based on their previous experience. However the situation has got much worse since the publication of the letter. Gaza has already been declared a disaster area by the UK government. Despite the destruction of infrastructure, doctors and healthcare workers in Gaza continued to work despite severe conditions and their personal circumstances. Their own homes are being destroyed and families killed, and to be landed with more than 12,000 wounded is simply overwhelming for any medical system. That this is why Swee and her surgical colleagues wanted to assist by volunteering to go to Gaza.. As of yesterday (22 August 2014) the death toll reached 2083, with 50% women and children. Eighty five families were annihilated, and 12,656 injured.

Is Hamas Leader Al-Arouri A ‘Double Agent’ for Israel?

Turkey has openly acknowledged that a top Hamas operative has been residing within its borders. The United States has also acknowledged this fact.

Saleh al-Arouri, one of the founding members of Hamas’s Qassam Brigades was exiled to Syria until the Arab Spring, quickly making his way to Turkey thereafter. Al-Arouri, formerly jailed in Israel for his Hamas membership has recently claimed that Hamas was involved in the deaths of three Israeli teens – without providing evidence.

SO MUCH FOR THE ONE STATE SOLUTION

Knesset members from Yisrael Beiteinu, Likud and Habayit Hayehudi are pushing a bill to make Hebrew the only official language of the State of Israel.

Current Israeli law borrows from legislation from the British Mandate period, under which the government and local authorities must publish all announcements and forms in Arabic. The new bill would annul this stipulation, as well as the use of Arabic at government ministries and in the courts.

According to the bill, highway signs would still have Arabic, “and everyone has the freedom to use other languages in the private and public domains, to nurture them and teach them.”

ISRAELI WEIGHTS AND MEASURES ~~ THE SCALE OF INJUSTICE

Aug 26 08:51

Friends of Israel

On July 23rd, officials of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee—the powerful lobbying group known as AIPAC—gathered in a conference room at the Capitol for a closed meeting with a dozen Democratic senators. The agenda of the meeting, which was attended by other Jewish leaders as well, was the war in the Gaza Strip. In the century-long conflict between the Israelis and the Palestinians, the previous two weeks had been particularly harrowing. In Israeli towns and cities, families heard sirens warning of incoming rockets and raced to shelters. In Gaza, there were scenes of utter devastation, with hundreds of Palestinian children dead from bombing and mortar fire. The Israeli government claimed that it had taken extraordinary measures to minimize civilian casualties, but the United Nations was launching an inquiry into possible war crimes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is very simple here: the current Israeli government, from Netanyahu to the Knesset, to the IDF, is a government of pure genocide against the Palestinian people.

The killing of innocent civilians is a war crime: Israel has been doing this with impunity, and should be brought up for war crimes by both the ICC and the UN. Of course, in the UN's Security Council, such a move will always be vetoed by the US.

But the next thing this Administration should do (IF it had any male attributes) is immediately stop all military and financial aid to Israel.

Just stop it and now, because such aid is illegal under the Symington Amendment, because Israel is a nuclear armed country which refuses to sign the NNPT, and refuses to allow its nuclear sites to be inspected. How can we respect a government which flouts the laws it has created by ignoring them?!? The short answer is, not much.

What may be in the best interests of the Israeli government may well NOT be in the best interests of this country. Let's say, a war by the US against Iran, in which Russia may well join on the Iranian side. Israel, even though it is not a party to the P5+1 negotiations on Iran's nuclear energy program, is pushing as hard as possible for these talks to end in abject failure, opening the gap for a possible US/Israeli military action against it.

And by supporting Israel financially, economically, and militarily, Congress is putting a foreign country ahead of any of the true needs and concerns of American citizens. We have been sold out, and rendered irrelevant, because of all the huge amounts of money AIPAC spends to get their guys elected, so that they come to the "right decisions" concerning Israel.

Right now, Israel needs to become as isolated as humanly possible, to get the carnage in Gaza to stop. And as individuals, you have not only the right to boycott any Israeli products; it is also your responsibility right now.

Prof. Omid Safi: Majority of Young Americans Don't Support Israel Anymore

According to Prof. Omid Safi, although the Western governments have been mostly silent on the carnage of the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip, the people in different countries, from France to Brazil and from Malaysia to Argentina have strongly stood by the people of Palestine and held massive demonstrations to voice their support for them.

"The latest studies indicate that now a majority of younger people in America are no longer supportive of Israeli policies," said Prof. Safi in an exclusive interview with Fars News Agency. "For the first time, many Americans are able to see firsthand the reality of the brutal oppression that Palestinians have been suffering from for decades. Second, there is a translation of the Palestinian cause from an “Arab cause” or a “Muslim cause” to a humanitarian cause," he added.

"Many people are increasingly able to relate to Palestine as what it is and what it has been for decades: a human rights catastrophe," Safi noted.

Iran State TV Airs Footage Of "Downed Israeli Drone"

As Iran continues to negotiate with world powers over its controversial (but purely for peaceful purposes, of course) nuclear program - with hard-liners demanding more concessions from the West - The Telegraph reports that a brief video, which aired on the Arabic-language Al-Alam TV, shows what the channel says are parts of an Israeli drone, scattered in an unidentified desert area. Text accompanying the footage says the drone was downed on Saturday and identifies it as a Hermes 450, a known Israeli model. The Iranian TV station also says the model is dubbed "Spy Goddess." However, as The Telegraph adds, there were no visible Israeli markings in the footage and Israel's military has declined comment on the matter... and Iran will sue Israel legally over its alleged violation of Iran's air space.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel used unmarked aircraft to attack the USS Liberty, so the absence of markings doesn't mean much.

Queuing to flee Gaza: Palestinians line up at border with Egypt as tit-for-tat rockets and air strikes continue

Hundreds of Palestinians desperate to escape Israel's bombardments in Gaza have been queuing to cross into Egypt.

Thousands of homes in the Gaza Strip have been destroyed or damaged in the conflict and nearly 500,000 people have been displaced in the territory where Palestinians, citing Israeli attacks that have hit schools and mosques, say no place is safe.

Israeli air strikes killed at least five Palestinians in the Gaza Strip and militants kept up their rocket fire on southern Israel on Monday, witnesses and officials said, as Egypt pressed on with efforts to broker a durable truce.

In a statement, the network said the letter was written in response to an ad campaign in which Elie Wiesel, a Holocaust survivor and Nobel Prize laureate, compares the murder of children during the Holocaust to Hamas’ actions in Gaza.

“We are disgusted and outraged by Elie Wiesel’s abuse of our history in these pages to justify the unjustifiable: Israel’s wholesale effort to destroy Gaza and the murder of more than 2,000 Palestinians, including many hundreds of children. Nothing can justify bombing UN shelters, homes, hospitals and universities. Nothing can justify depriving people of electricity and water,” the letter reads.

It concludes: “’Never again’ must mean NEVER AGAIN FOR ANYONE.”

The website of Makor Rishon newspaper said that Ben Yair, who also worked as a judge in the Israeli supreme court, tweeted on his twitter account the following: "There is no agreement and hostilities have been renewed, but who is the culprit? Hamas who wants an agreement with accomplishments or Israel who staged the breach of the ceasefire in order to justify the assassination of Muhammad Al-Daif?"

Israel's Genocidal Killing Machine

War without mercy is official Israeli policy. Rule of law principles don't matter.

Throughout its entire history, Israel waged genocidal war on Palestine.

Its 1947-48 War of Independence prioritized an exclusive Jewish state with no Arab presence.

Strategy was by any means possible. It included mass murder, destruction and forced displacement.

According to historian Ilan Pappe, Israeli policy involved "large-scale intimidation; laying siege to and bombarding villages and population centres; setting fire to homes, properties and goods; expulsion; demolition; and finally, planting mines among the rubble to prevent any of the expelled inhabitants from returning."

Israel's dirty war took six months to complete. It was a walkover. It forcibly displaced about 800,000 Palestinians. It murdered many others.

It destroyed 531 villages and 11 urban neighborhoods in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Haifa and other cities.

Starve or surrender: Cut off all food and water to Gaza, says Israeli general

Israeli Major-General Giora Eiland has urged that all food and water be cut off to Gaza’s nearly 1.8 million Palestinian residents – a major war crime and precisely the “starve or surrender” policy which the United States has condemned when used in Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Back in 1948, the Soviet Union blockaded the highway that connected West Berlin with West Germany. Their goal was to starve the West Berliners into abandoning their own government and accepting Soviet rule through the proxy of East Germany. Then too, the strategy was :surrender or die." The world responded to this crime by mounting the Berlin Airlift, which for over a year flew in food, medicine, and other needed supplies to keep West Berlin alive until the Soviet Union relented and allowed the highway to reopen.

Why are we not seeing the same response when Israel does the same thing to Gaza?

With much to hide, Israel is running scared

It seems that Israel will not be cooperating with a panel set up by the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) to investigate possible war crimes committed by the Israeli army in the Gaza Strip. Israel’s Foreign Ministry is bitterly critical of the probe and the panel, claiming that the findings of UNHRC’s investigations are predetermined, while the prime minister and the foreign minister announced that UNHRC long ago became the ‘Terrorists Rights Council’ and a ‘kangaroo court’.

The Israeli position towards UNHRC is not surprising considering the UN body has found Israel guilty in the past.

“The Right To Exist” – States or People?

It is a curious phrase this “right to exist”. Israel wants the world to accept its “right to exist” as a state, but it denies the indigenous Palestinians their right to exist as a people in their own land. International relations only acknowledges the rights of people, not states. [1] States exist because of the formal recognition afforded them by other states, and now that Israel is recognised as a state, it in fact exists. It makes no sense to demand that a political party recognise Israel’s “right to exist”, much less punish 4 million Palestinians because a majority voted the Hamas Party into government. Yet, these are the very words that are holding the Palestinians, particularly those in Gaza, to an impossible ransom.

Israeli F-16 Missile Attacks Venezuelan Humanitarian Aid Mission in Gaza

Venezuelan ambassador to Egypt, Juan Antonio Hernandez, said Wednesday that an Israeli aircraft attacked the Venezuelan humanitarian delegation in Rafah along the border post between Egypt and Palestine. The delegation was delivering twelve tons of aid to the Palestinian people. No one was injured during the attack.

The F-16 airplane dropped a missile very close to the humanitarian site, though it did not explode. The ambassador confirmed that the missile fell approximately 50 to 70 meters from the site.

El Universal reported that Roni Kaplan, the spokesperson of the Israel Defense Forces, asserted that “there was no attack by the Israeli forces on the Egyptian side of Gaza. The air force has not attacked nor launched sound bombs to any humanitarian convoy on its way to Gaza from Egypt.”

Gaza war has cost $2.5 billion so far, says Israel's defense ministry

That amount is just the military cost and does not include the cost to the economy overall

There's a popular phrase, "follow the money," which suggests that if you want a complete picture of a given situation, you need to examine its financial underpinnings.

Journalists don't typically talk about Israel's Operation Protective Edge in terms of money, but there is no doubt it has been very expensive.

Israeli defense officials told Ha'aretz newspaper that as of Wednesday, the operation's cost had surpassed 9 billion shekels ($2.5 billion). Meanwhile, Israel's Finance Ministry believes the cost of the war is closer to 7 billion shekels. This could drastically affect the Finance Ministry`s attempts to stay within its budget goals.

US Media Rules of Reporting on Israeli ‘Operations’ in Gaza

Since Hamas fired its first projectile from Gaza into Israel in 2001, the US establishment media have strictly followed several rules of reporting on the “rockets.” These rules are unwritten. The scriveners and TV news broadcasters may not even think of them as rules. Nevertheless, American mass media reporting on Gaza rockets consistently and predictably follows one absolute, overarching, principle: Israel is always the victim. The rules implement this First Principle. Short are the careers of those who transgress them.

The media faithfully have followed the rules in “Operation Protective Edge.” A reasonable person could fairly describe “Protective Edge” as US-tax dollar funded, Israeli-delivered bombs, tank and artillery shells, missiles, flechette grenades and other explosive devices which sometimes kill dozens of civilians in the Gaza strip a day. No consumer of US mass media will ever hear that description, of course. It offends the First Principle.

After arming and aiding the Kurds in fighting ISIS in Iraq, the US will attempt to make a similar argument regarding the arming of terrorists in Syria and providing them direct US air support to defeat ISIS - and of course - Damascus.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Earlier this week, the Zim Piraeus tried a fast one by sailing away from the Oakland terminal and heading out past the Golden Gate bridge, then after the protesters left, doubled back. The protesters came back, and supported by the Longshoremen (who were angered by a union contract violation), blocked the unloading one more time, with the Zim Piraeus only able to unload 2% of her cargo. Yesterday, the ship tracking network showed the Zim Piraeus headed northwest at 16 knots, but it has dropped off the tracking system. Is it simply out of range, or has the Captain shut off the reporting system and even now headed back to Oakland?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obviously this will not go over very well with the pro-illegal immigration agenda, but what is being done here is the creation of a plausible means for the terrorists (nudge nudge wink wink) to have brought the bomb into the US.

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

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is estimated that Israel acquired at least 118 kilograms of weapons-grade uranium. 16 kilograms of uranium is enough to make a working nuclear weapon. So Israel acquired enough uranium to make seven bombs. Now the trick of getting a "terrorist" nuclear weapon into the United States is getting it INTO the United States, but Israel started out with enough uranium inside the United States to make 7 bombs, then smuggled all or part of it back to Israel. It would have been trivial for Israel to leave enough weapons-grade uranium inside the US to build a bomb, and there is still the unexplained radiation surrounding Israel's New York Embassy. Getting that weapons-grade uranium is the hard part of building a bomb. Once you have that, the rest is easy. All a uranium bomb does is take two sub-critical pieces of uranium and slap them together. Such a bomb makes for a great means of blackmailing the US government, or staging the ultimate terror false-flag to trigger WW3. Just something to keep in mind while ABCNNBBCBSFOXDRUDGE scream at you that ISIS is going to nuke a US city!

Handbook: 7 Basic Propaganda Devices

As part of our ongoing effort to expose propaganda techniques, we are posting the propaganda section of the Hasbara Handbook: Promoting Israel on Campus, originally leaked by Wikispooks. It is more than a decade old, as it refers to PLO leader Yasser Arafat, who passed away in 2004.

Propaganda is used by those who want to communicate in ways that engage the emotions, and downplay rationality, in an attempt to promote a certain message. To effectively present Israel to the public, and to counter anti-Israel messages, it is necessary to understand propaganda devices.

This article applies a list of seven propaganda devices to the Israeli situation, and by doing so allows an understanding of some of the ways in which public opinion is fought for in the International arena.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Note that the actual listing of techniques is written from the Israeli point of view.

NATO Using Foley and ISIS As A Pretext For Bombing Syria - Ultimate Target Is Russia

The Islamic State and the war in Syria is back on the front pages of the news once again on the heels of the alleged killing of James Mark Foley, an American journalist working in Syria. The outrage surrounding the alleged beheading of Foley, while justifiable if it is real, is already being used for propaganda purposes, namely in order to build up American support for an aerial bombing campaign against the Syrian government.

A LETTER FROM THE WEST BANK ~~ WE ARE ONE WITH GAZA

I have not written much lately and this email maybe personal and hard. Our days start early and end very late. Our nights are also occasionally interrupted by calls from friends in Gaza or others who need some support. In the past 48 hours, over 100 Palestinian civilians were killed by Israeli occupation forces. Many of those are in Rafah. Sometimes I feel guilty that I am affected more by those I know than those who die that I did not know. For example, I cried after I hung-up the phone with Islam, a friend in Rafah who has four children and they can’t sleep and their house shook and windows shattered as missiles rained on homes nearby. I cried because I know him and his handicapped son and his dilemma at whether to try to carry his son and run to the street or not. But then I cried some more thinking of the many innocents who got killed and injured and who I dd not personally know and did not cry for them earlier. Islam and his family will be traumatized for life.

Gaza and the limits of ‘objective’ reporting

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has always been a lopsided affair. On 14 July, US satirist Jon Stewart highlighted the disparity in the ‘war’ between Israel and Gaza. Playing an NBC news clip, Stewart noted the clothing of the two correspondents. In Tel Aviv, Martin Fletcher wore a breezy polo shirt, while in Gaza Ayman Mohyeldin was equipped in a full flak suit.

‘He looks like an extra from The Hurt Locker!’ Stewart exclaimed, imploring his audience to comprehend the folly of trying to balance both sides of this particular story.

Aussies protest Israeli film festival

Pro-Palestinian activists have held a rally in Sydney to protest against the opening of the Israeli Film Festival in the Australian city.

Protester gathered near Sydney’s Palace Verona cinema on Thursday to show their solidarity with Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip who have been under Israeli attacks since July 8.

The protest came despite a ruling by the New South Wales Supreme Court, which said the rally at Palace Verona on Oxford Street, could not go ahead, citing concerns about traffic.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Yeah. Traffic. That's it. It's the traffic. Yeah, yeah. Sure, sure. Traffic. That is why we have to stop you protesting Israel. The traffic! Sure, sure!"

Things cannot stay the same after Israeli genocide in Gaza

After every bloody episode of violence perpetrated by Israel, media spin doctors are often deployed with one grand mission: to absolve Israel of any responsibility in their acts of carnage.

Not only do these apologists demonize Palestinians, but anyone who dares to take a stand on their behalf. The main staple of this Israeli strategy has been blaming the victim. Such a tactic is nothing new in the way the so-called "Arab-Israeli conflict" has been presented in Western media, whose narrative has been much closer to that of Israeli official and media discourses than that of Palestinians. This continued despite the decades-long military occupation, successive wars, and countless massacres.

Israeli settlers unleash dog pack on Palestinian kids

Israeli settlers have unleashed a large pack of dogs on Palestinian children, brutally injuring one near Salfit in the center of the occupied West Bank.

The dogs harshly savaged the five-year-old boy, who is in dire need of several surgeries, including a facial reconstructive one.

The boy, identified as Karmel Moayyad Shakir, was playing with his peers in the village of Azawiyeh when the illegal settlers from the nearby Kannat settlement arrived at the spot along with a large pack of dogs.

Before the boy’s family could intervene, the dogs attacked the five-year-old who was lucky enough not to die, yet sustained severe injuries.

US accuses Israel of targeting relatives of kidnapped and murdered Palestinian 16-year-old

The United States on Wednesday charged Israel had targeted members of a Palestinian family whose teenaged son was kidnapped and killed in July along with two cousins, who are US citizens.

Tensions between Palestinians and Israelis in annexed east Jerusalem plunged to a new low on July 2 when 16-year-old Mohammed Abu Khder was snatched from an east Jerusalem street and later found burned alive.

Israeli police arrested six alleged Jewish extremists as suspects and on July 17 charged three, freeing the others.

This may be the reaosn Israel; is again trying to claim HAMAS kidnapped and killed the three teens in the West Bank, to create an "equivalency" for the death of the American.

The Secret Playbook of Internet Trolls

Why would a Jew post vile anti-Semitic comments? Because normal people are offended by – and don’t want to be associated with – pure, naked anti-Semitism, and so they will avoid such discussions. If the discussion was originally criticizing a specific aspect of Israel policy, the discussion will break down, and the actual point regarding policy will be lost.

Similarly, anti-Semitic posts weaken websites by making them seem less reputable. Indeed, Common Dreams says that the troll’s anti-Semitic comments drove away many of that site’s largest donors … dealing a severe blow to its continued viability. That’s exactly what trolls spewing anti-Semitic bile are trying to do: shut down logical discussion and discredit and weaken sites which allow rational criticism of policy.

BEX ALERT - Top Hamas sheikh admits to June kidnapping of Israeli teens

Sheikh Saleh al-Arouri, a senior Hamas religious figure, is heard on the video saying that he “blessed the heroic action” which was “carried out by the al-Qassam Brigades” — the armed wing of Hamas. This action, “the kidnapping to Hebron of the three settlers,” was an “operation spoken of far and wide,” al-Arouri added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel just posted this story and as is to be expected, the corporate media is giving it headline treatment without questioning the story. Nobody ever came up with a reason why HAMAS, which at the time was trying to build world support for their Unity government, would have done such a stupid thing. Nobody has explained why the abductors, whose voices were captured in the cell phone call made by one of the victims, were speaking Hebrew.

Assuming that this is the real Saleh al-Arouri and he is not being intentionally mistranslated (again), why would he hand Israel such a potent propaganda weapon on a silver platter, especially since the IDF destroyed his home last June?

This does not pass the smell test at all!

Jewish Iranian MP: Israeli War Crimes Must Be Denounced by the World

The representative of the Jewish minority in the Iranian Parliament Siamak Marreh Sedq strongly condemned Israel’s recent attacks on the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, and said that the time is now ripe for the international community to break its silence on Tel Aviv’s criminal acts.

“Attacks on hospitals, schools and other public places are regarded as war crimes and the world should break the silence and confront these savage attempts,” Marreh Sedq told reporters on Thursday.

He noted that Israel should have its membership at the UN and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRS) annulled.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As of last report, the Zim Shipping cargo ship only unloaded 2% of its cargo before protesters succeeded in halting the operation. In the rush to unload the ship, port authorities bypassed the Union Hiring Hall which put the Longshoremen firmly on the side of the protesters! As of this posting, tracking shows the Zim Piraeus well out of San Francisco bay and heading NW.

The next step is to contact any stores that carry products from Israel and announce a boycott, not of the Israeli products but the entire store itself!

Weapons fired in Ferguson come from companies supplying Israel, Bahrain and Egypt

When tear-gas was first fired into the streets of Ferguson, Missouri at people angry at the police killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown, Palestinian activists sent out messages on Twitter giving people tips for how to deal with tear gas’ effects.

And there was another direct connection between events in Missouri and the West Bank, as Palestinian activist Mariam Barghouti noted: the company that supplies the Israeli army with tear gas is the same company supplying the police in Ferguson.

Gaza crisis: Israel kills three top Hamas commanders

An Israeli air strike on a house in Gaza has killed three senior Hamas military commanders, militants say.

Mohammed Abu Shamala, Mohammed Barhoum and Raed al-Attar died in the attack near the southern town of Rafah, which Gaza officials said killed at least 10.

An Israeli was severely injured as rockets were fired into Israel on Thursday, the army said.

Hostilities between the two sides resumed after talks on a long-term ceasefire deal collapsed on Tuesday.

Israel has vowed to pursue its campaign until "full security" is achieved.

Revered Rabbi Preaches “Slaughter” of Gentile Babies

Nazareth: A rabbi from one of the most violent settlements in the West Bank was questioned on suspicion of incitement last week as Israeli police stepped up their investigation into a book in which he sanctions the killing of non-Jews, including children and babies.

Rabbi Yitzhak Shapira is one of the leading ideologues of the most extreme wing of the religious settler movement. He is known to be a champion of the “price-tag” policy of reprisal attacks on Palestinians, including punishing them for attempts by officials to enforce Israeli law against the settlements.

So far the policy has chiefly involved violent harassment of Palestinians, with settlers inflicting beatings, attacking homes, throwing stones, burning fields, killing livestock and poisoning wells.

It is feared, however, that Shapira’s book The King’s Torah, published last year, is intended to offer ideological justifications for widening the scope of such attacks to include killing Palestinians, even children.

ANTI SEMITISM DOES NOT HELP THE PALESTINIAN CAUSE

The most recent incident took place in Sweden just a few days ago. It received page one coverage throughout the zionist media, not as a news item but rather as a confirmation to their readers that this was in connection to supporting Israel. Both those media outlets and the attackers themselves are JUST PLAIN WRONG! The only ones benefiting by such actions are the zionists themselves, surely not the Pro Palestinian Movements. The burning of Jewish owned shops or synagogues in Paris will not rebuild the shops and mosques destroyed in Gaza, nor will those actions garner sympathy from people who have not yet sided with us. Once again, it’s only the zionists that benefit from this. In fact, I will go even further by saying that the vast majority of these ‘anti Semitic’ incidents are actually propaganda hoaxes by Israel’s supporters.

The German-American Bund was a pro-Nazi political movement that started in 1935. Under the leadership of its "Führer," a notorious anti-Semite named Fritz Kuhn, the Bund at its height claimed about 15,000 members. The Bund's fortunes experienced a downturn in 1939, when Kuhn was sent to prison for embezzling funds.
It turned out that the ADL was financing the whole thing.

The Double Identity of an "Anti-Semitic" Commenter

Like many other news websites, Common Dreams has been plagued by inflammatory anti-Semitic comments following its stories. But on Common Dreams these posts have been so frequent and intense they have driven away donors from a nonprofit dependent on reader generosity.

A Common Dreams investigation has discovered that more than a thousand of these damaging comments over the past two years were written with a deceptive purpose by a Jewish Harvard graduate in his thirties who was irritated by the website's discussion of issues involving Israel.

His intricate campaign, which he has admitted to Common Dreams, included posting comments by a screen name, "JewishProgressive," whose purpose was to draw attention to and denounce the anti-Semitic comments that he had written under many other screen names.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We get a lot of that here as well. And there is nothing new in this tactic. Back in the 1930s, the ADL was able to solicit huge donations to oppose the American Nazi Party, a very small organization that nonetheless garnered a lot of media attention, which assisted ADL in raising more funds. Then the leader of the American Nazi Party was arrested for embezzling from his sponsor ... which turned out to be the ADL!

Israel needs the illusion of anti-Semitism for political reasons and if none is to be found, they just create it themselves!

Gaza war rages on, Hamas says Israel tried to kill its military chief

An Israeli air strike in Gaza killed the wife and infant son of Hamas's military leader, Mohammed Deif, the group said, calling it an attempt to assassinate him after a ceasefire collapsed.

Palestinians launched more than 130 rockets, mainly at southern Israel, with some intercepted by the Iron Dome anti-missile system, the military said. No casualties were reported on the Israeli side.

Egypt, which has been trying to broker a long-term ceasefire in indirect Israeli-Palestinian talks, said it would continue contacts with both sides, whose delegates left Cairo after hostilities resumed on Tuesday.

But there appeared to be no end in sight to violence that shattered a 10-day period of calm, the longest break from fighting since Israel launched its Gaza offensive on July 8 with the declared aim of ending rocket fire into its territory.

Israeli aircraft have carried out 80 strikes in the Gaza Strip since Tuesday, "targeting terror sites", the military said.

Hitting and destroying a missile with another one isn’t possible. It may never be other than occasional lucky exceptions.

Gaza Ceasefire Collapses: What Did You Expect?

Deif, whom Israel has attempted to kill many times, may have survived, though reports say a third unidentified person was killed as well. The reason why this is especially important is that Israel was supposedly observing a temporary ceasefire and supposedly negotiating in good faith with Egypt and Hamas about a permanent ceasefire.

We can clearly see how genuine Israeli ceasefires and commitments are. When they can drown their enemies in blood, they do so no matter what agreements this may violate.

Oakland Protest Blocks Unloading of Israeli Cargo Ship

Activists protesting Israel's military action in the Gaza Strip converged on the Port of Oakland on Sunday afternoon in an effort to block the unloading of an Israeli cargo ship, the second such action in two days.

The activists formed pickets at several Port gates to prevent workers from unloading the Piraeus, a vessel from Zim Integrated Shipping Services, Israel's largest shipping firm. The ship docked at 5 p.m. at the port's Oakland International Container Terminal, and protesters communicating via Twitter said port employees were honoring their picket lines.

US Pressuring PA Not to Sue Israel for 'War Crimes'

A report on Monday reveals that America and other Western countries are pressuring the Palestinian Authority (PA) not to carry out its threat of suing Israel at the International Criminal Court (ICC) for "war crimes."

Zim Shipping: New Evidence suggests Six Months Foreknowledge of the September 11th Attack Date and Potential Involvement in the Israeli Deep Cover Operation

Although there were some variances in the WTC 1 tenant rosters between various media organizations, the majority showed that Zim occupied all of the 16th floor (WTC floor space approximated 50,000 square feet), 10,000 square feet of the 17th floor, and some space of the 29th floor of WTC 1.[4] Zim had about 250 employees at the WTC before its move-out, which would require somewhere in the vicinity of 50,000 to 60,000 square feet of office space.[5]

Amazingly fortunate for Zim, the company moved out of the WTC around Sept. 4, 2001 and into a newly built office building in Norfolk, VA, even though they had a significant remaining lease obligation at the WTC.[6] In fact, Zim picked this lucky move-out date about six months before they actually moved.

MSM War on Gaza

Upside down reality persists. Truth is systematically suppressed. Big Lies substitute.

Cold, calculated premeditated IDF aggression is called self-defense. Legitimate Palestinian self-defense is called terrorism.

Palestine's democratically elected Hamas government is outrageously called a terrorist organization.

Police state Israel is called a democracy. How can it be when Jews alone have rights. Arab citizens are considered fifth column threats.

Elected Arab Knesset members are powerless. They're little more than potted plants. They're parliamentarians in name only.

They're treated like enemies of the state. They're unable to help the people they represent. They can't protect themselves when wrongfully persecuted and vilified.

Israel is more hypocrisy than democracy. It's more rogue state than egalitarian. It rules Occupied Palestine ruthlessly. It attacks Gaza whenever it wishes for any reason or none at all.

Not kosher: Supermarket removes Jewish food amid anti-Israel protests

A central London branch of a major UK supermarket emptied its kosher food shelf after its manager feared anti-Israeli protesters outside would attack the store, the grocery giant has confirmed.

Meats, cheeses and sauces were removed and placed into cool storage at a Sainsbury's Local branch in Holborn as it was picketed by demonstrators calling on the grocer to boycott Israeli goods.

SHOCKING REPORT IN THE NYT ABOUT ISRAELI ORGAN TRAFFICKING

Two years ago, the report states, the family of Ophira Dorin, a 36-year-old Israeli woman with kidney disease, began looking for a way to bypass the long waiting list for an organ and soon came found three Israeli organ brokers whose reach purportedly extends to Central America.

It wasn’t an easy task, the report said, but Dorin’s mother, who works in a hospital, managed to make a contact with the three brokers, whom the Times names as Yaakov “Koby” Dayan, a businessman in his late fifties who takes an interest in real estate and marketing; Avigad Sandler, a 65-year-old insurance agent who was an IDF officer; and 30-year-old Boris Volfman, an emigrant from Ukraine and Avigad’s protégé, who runs his own transplant tourism agency.

All three are active operators in Israel’s underground kidney market, according to the Times.

LIVE UPDATES: Palestinian sources: Cease-fire deal initialed in Cairo

With the current cease-fire due to end Monday at midnight, Israeli officials seemed doubtful that the talks in Cairo could achieve any kind of agreement before the deadline, but stressed that if Hamas withheld its fire, negotiations could continue.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Netanyahu will have an agent provocateur in Gaza fire off a rocket so that he can resume bombing.

THE UN SAT AND WATCHED, PHOTOGRAPHED THE CARNAGE IN GAZA, AND DID NOTHING!

The United Nations released the Gaza Crisis Atlas on Sunday, showing the physical damage wrought on the Strip during IDF Operation Protective Edge using satellite imagery. The 108-page document will be used by a UN investigatory committee on the conflict.

The Atlas overlays a grid over Gaza, dividing it into smaller parcels – with each one receiving a detailed page noting the locations of schools, mosques, and public buildings on high-resolution satellite footage.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The UN did nothing because the US always vetoes everything regarding Israel in the Security Council.

Government breaks up ring that circulated counterfeit $100s for 15 years

For the last 15 years, at least $77 million in sophisticated counterfeit $100 bills have flooded into the country from Israel.

The Secret Service says it has now broken up the ring believed responsible for bringing the bills here, just as the counterfeiters were starting to produce the bills at a new plant in New Jersey.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Remember how the corporate media kept insisting that these bills were coming from Russia, China, and North Korea?

“THEY PULLED ME BACK IN…”

How handy. All three US networks and the increasingly shackled BBC were ordered to drop Gaza reporting and refocus their camera teams on the suffering Yazidis and, all of a sudden, Iraq’s fleeing Christians.

This was a brilliant media ploy. The world, which was furious at the US for enabling Israel’s savaging of Gaza and killing of almost 2,000 Palestinians, switched its attention to the hitherto unknown Yazidis, and to Iraqi Christians. No one in the US had ever heard of Yazidis but that was ok. Uncle Sam to the rescue.

No mention was made that Iraq’s Christians had been safe and sound under President Saddam Hussein – even privileged – until President George Bush invaded and destroyed Iraq. We can expect the same fate for Syria’s Christians if the protection of the Assad regime is torn away by the US-engineered uprising. We will then shed crocodile tears for Syria’s Christians.

Israelis at forefront of international organ trafficking: Report

The US daily New York Times said in a report published on Sunday that transplant brokers in Israel have pocketed enormous sums of money by arranging overseas kidney transplants for desperate patients who are paired with foreign donors.

Through the story of an Israeli woman, identified as Ophira Dorin, the report showed how easy it is to illegally purchase a kidney via transplant brokers in Israel.

Dorin told the daily that she paid USD 175,000 for a kidney transplant surgery which was arranged to take place in Costa Rica. However, a confidential Costa Rican court document shows that the donor, who was an unemployed 37-year-old man, received only USD 18,500 for his kidney.

We Have Had Enough of Elie Wiesel and His Ilk

According to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, the London Times refused to run an ad featuring Elie Wiesel speaking out against Hamas’ use of children as human shields.

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

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

What Do Jews Say About Palestine and Gaza?

313 Jewish survivors and descendants of survivors and victims of the Nazi genocide have signed a letter stating:

As Jewish survivors and descendants of survivors and victims of the Nazi genocide we unequivocally condemn the massacre of Palestinians in Gaza and the ongoing occupation and colonization of historic Palestine. We further condemn the United States for providing Israel with the funding to carry out the attack, and Western states more generally for using their diplomatic muscle to protect Israel from condemnation. Genocide begins with the silence of the world.

We are alarmed by the extreme, racist dehumanization of Palestinians in Israeli society, which has reached a fever-pitch. In Israel, politicians and pundits in The Times of Israel and The Jerusalem Post have called openly for genocide of Palestinians and right-wing Israelis are adopting Neo-Nazi insignia.

Netanyahu Threatens ‘Massive Response’ if Gaza Ceasefire Expires

The current 5-day ceasefire between Israel and Hamas is scheduled to expire at midnight local time, and it isn’t clear if a deal will be reached on the Egyptian-backed truce.

Both sides are warning of a willingness to resume the war, with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is making much of his plans for “massive retaliation” if Hamas allows the ceasefire to lapse.

A lot of the threats on both sides are simple bargaining tactics, of course, but a lot of the hawks in Israel’s security cabinet are sincere in wanting talks to end entirely, and without a deal.

#OperationCeasefire ~~ THE TRUCE THAT ALMOST WAS LOOKS UNLIKELY NOW

Israel will not agree to any long-term ceasefire in Gaza at indirect talks in Cairo unless its security needs are clearly met, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday.”The Israeli delegation in Cairo is acting with a very clear mandate to stand firmly on Israel’s security needs,” Netanyahu told ministers at the start of the weekly cabinet meeting in Jerusalem.

“Only if there is a clear answer to Israel’s security needs, only then will we agree to reach an understanding,” he said, as Israel’s negotiating team made its way back to Cairo for indirect talks with Palestinians over a long-term arrangement to end more than a month of bloodshed in Gaza.

Tel Aviv demo decries Israel’s war on Gaza

Thousands have taken to streets of Tel Aviv to censure the Israeli regime for its saber-rattling policies towards Palestinians of the besieged Gaza Strip.

The anti-war demonstration was held in Rabin square late on Saturday, days after a similar rally was banned by the regime.

The event’s organizers put the turnout at around 10,000. Meanwhile, Israeli authorities boosted security in the streets of the coastal city.
