New book by Tel Aviv historian uncovers "Land of Israel" myths

In the Hebrew Bible (known to Christians as the Old Testament), the geographic area roughly corresponding to the land of Palestine (between the River Jordan and the Mediterranean Sea) is mostly called the “land of Canaan.” The area “never served as a homeland for the ‘children of Israel,’ and for this reason, among others, they never refer to it as ‘the Land of Israel.’” Most Israelis, Sand argues, are not aware that the term is not found in the the Hebrew Bible “in its inclusive meaning” of a wide geographic area (86).

Later Jewish religious law “does feature the debut of the term ‘Land of Israel’?” but, Sand explains, this was a “holy land” rather than a “homeland” (102). Most Jews did not seek to live there. Philo of Alexandria, a first century Jewish philosopher, lived in Egypt — right next to Palestine. He could have moved to Jerusalem, since both regions were under Roman rule — but instead, like most people, he chose to live and die in his original homeland (96).

THE SEARING HYPOCRISY OF THE WEST

The bodies of three Israeli settlers who went missing on June 12th were found in a hastily dug shallow grave in Halhul, north of Hebron.

Since the teens went missing from Gush Etzion, a Jewish-only colony in the West Bank, Israel has besieged the 4 million Palestinians who already live under its thumb, storming through towns, ransacking homes and civil institutions, conducting night raids on families, stealing property, kidnapping, injuring, and killing. Warplanes were dispatched to bomb Gaza, again and repeatedly, destroying more homes and institutions and carrying out extrajudicial executions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Back on the Mavi Marmara, when Israeli soldiers killed 18 humanitarian workers, including an American,m the reaction of the US Government was that it was "an unfortunate incident" but that nothing should be done in reprisal. Today we have three dead teenagers, no evidence at all of who did it, clear indications that the bodies were intentionally staged to be found, and Israel declaring that HAMAS did the foul deed, although nobody can think of a reason for HAMAS to do such a horrific thing at a time when HAMAS and FATAH need public support for their new unity government. The reaction of the US Government is unqualified support for Israel's vengeance!

THE REVENGE OF ZION

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu led the pack, calling the killers of the youths “human animals” and stating “Hamas is responsible. Hamas will pay.” Netanyahu specifically used the word “revenge” hinting at what he may have in store. But many went even further.

WHEN WILL THE INSANITY END? ~~ A VIEW FROM PALESTINE

A sadly familiar scene over the past two weeks here in occupied Palestine: 10 Palestinians (including a 7 and 15 year old) and three Israeli settlers (16 ­ 19 year old) were killed. Dozens of Palestinian homes were demolished in the past two weeks. Over 570 more Palestinians were kidnapped in these two weeks making more than 6000 abductees languishing in Israeli gulags/prisons. 1500 Palestinian homes invaded without due process. 12 million native Palestinians still await their freedom from colonial occupation and displacement. And Israeli leaders are promising to “do more” (genocidal mayhem?). But the question remains when will this insanity end?

The Five Dancing Israelis Arrested On 9-11

The Jewish weekly The Forward reported that the FBI finally concluded that at least two of the detained Israelis were agents working for the Mossad, the Israeli intelligence agency, and that Urban Moving Systems, the ostensible employer of the five Israelis, was a front operation. This was confirmed by two former CIA officers, and they noted that movers' vans are a common intelligence cover. (23). The Israelis were held in custody for 71 days before being quietly released. (24)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Needless to say, Israel's minions are already chasing me around the net, screaming that I am an anti-Semite for doubting Israel's story about the three teens and insisting that Israel would never play dirty tricks to start wars. Here is one well-known example. On 9-11, a van load of Israelis made a spectacle of themselves cheering and clapping as the World Trade Towers collapsed. The video they were shooting remains classified to this very day. Rumor has it that it shows the first impact, proving the Israelis had foreknowledge. The FBI determined that at least two of the Israelis were Mossad agents. NPR put the number at three.

"Evidence linking these Israelis to 9/11 is classified. I cannot tell you about evidence that has been gathered. It's classified information." -- US official quoted in Carl Cameron's Fox News report on the Israeli spy ring and its connections to 9-11.

Israel's attack on the USS Liberty

A former Navy attorney who helped lead the military investigation of the 1967 Israeli attack on the USS Liberty that killed 34 American servicemen says former President Lyndon Johnson and his defense secretary, Robert McNamara, ordered that the inquiry conclude the incident was an accident.

In a signed affidavit released at a Capitol Hill news conference, retired Capt. Ward Boston said Johnson and McNamara told those heading the Navy's inquiry to "conclude that the attack was a case of 'mistaken identity' despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary."

It was “one of the classic all-American cover-ups,” said retired Admiral Thomas Moorer, a former Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman who spent a year investigating the attack as part of an independent panel he formed with other former military officials. The panel also included a former US ambassador to Saudi Arabia, James Akins.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Needless to say, Israel's minions are already chasing me around the net, screaming that I am an anti-Semite for doubting Israel's story about the three teens and insisting that Israel would never play dirty tricks to start wars. Here is one well-known example, in which Israelis attacked the USS Liberty and initially tried to frame Egypt for the attack, to trick the US into war against Egypt on Israel's side. The plan almost worked, and there was a nuclear-armed strike in the air on the way to Cairo when Liberty's crew erected a makeshift antenna to replace the one Israel had shot away in the attack, and got a message out identifying who their attackers really were. President Johnson ordered the incident hushed up and blamed on "bad weather" even though the photos and films taken on the USS Liberty during the attack show clear skies and light scattered clouds and good visibility. The US flag from the USS Liberty, still riddled with Israeli bullet holes, is now on display at the US Cryptographic museum.

THE LAVON AFFAIR

In 1954, Israeli agents working in Egypt planted bombs in several buildings, including a United States diplomatic facility, and left evidence behind implicating Egyptian Muslims as the culprits. The ruse would have worked, had not one of the bombs detonated prematurely, allowing the Egyptians to capture and identify one of the bombers, which in turn led to the round up of an Israeli spy ring.

Some of the spies were from Israel, while others were recruited from the local Jewish population. Israel responded to the scandal with claims in the media that there was no spy ring, that it was all a hoax perpetrated by "anti-Semites".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Needless to say, Israel's minions are already chasing me around the net, screaming that I am an anti-Semite for doubting Israel's story about the three teens and insisting that Israel would never play dirty tricks to start wars.

CONFESSIONS OF AN EX-MOSSAD AGENT

By the end of March, the Americans were already intercepting messages broadcast by the Trojan, which was only activated during heavy communication traffic hours. Using the Trojan, the Mossad tried to make it appear that a long series of terrorist orders were being transmitted to various Libyan embassies around the world (or, as they were called by the Libyans, Peoples' Bureaus). As the Mossad had hoped, the transmissions were deciphered by the Americans and construed as ample proof that the Libyans were active sponsors of terrorism. What's more, the Americans pointed out, Mossad reports confirmed it.

The French and the Spanish, though, were not buying into the new stream of information. To them, it seemed suspicious that suddenly, out of the blue, the Libyans, who'd been extremely careful in the past, would start advertising their future actions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Needless to say, Israel's minions are already chasing me around the net, screaming that I am an anti-Semite for doubting Israel's story about the three teens and insisting that Israel would never play dirty tricks to start wars. Here is one example, revealed by former Mossad agent Victor Ostrovsky, in which Israel planted a radio transmitter inside Tripoli and used it to send messages that tricked Ronald Regan into bombing Libya.

Israel finds teens' bodies, vows to make Hamas pay

One of the civilian volunteers involved in the search told army radio the bodies had been found under a pile of branches and stones in a remote area.

"Today, during a sweep with the army, one of the guys spotted something unusual, they started to move branches and stones and found the bodies," said volunteer Benny Truper.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In other words, the bodies were placed in a manner meant to draw attention and be found.

The quickest way to detect a government lie is to look for what should be there and isn't, and what isn't there is a REASON for HAMAS to do something that stupid at this particular time.

HAMAS and FATAH formed a unity government. They need the support of the world right now, and neither HAMAS or FATAH is going to carry out an act that would wreck the very public support they need. It's like George Washington trying to kick out the British by shooting students in the colonial schools; it is just not going to happen.

Netanyahu, of course, is adamantly opposed to the unity government and stated he would find some way to wreck it. It appears he has done just that.

Keep in mind Israel's history. In both the Lavon affair and the attack on the USS Liberty, Israel carried out attacks then tried to frame Egypt for them, to trick the US into ending political relations and possibly launching war. In these two cases, Israel's deception became known, but one may presume that where one Israeli deception is found, there are likely dozens more they got away with. This stunt with the three teens appears to be more of the same. Kidnapping and killing these kids does not help HAMAS, but clearly helped Netanyahu by creating the excuse for him to launch outright war on Gaza.

"By way of deception, thou shalt do war" -- Motto of the Mossad

Fool me once...

Bodies of three missing teenagers found in West Bank: Israeli media

Israel has accused Hamas, which has its power base in the Gaza Strip, as being behind the abduction of the teenagers. Hamas has neither confirmed nor denied involvement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

First off, HAMAS has in fact denied any connection to the three teens, which makes sense when you think about it. After all, HAMAS and FATAH need world support for their new unity government. A stunt like kidnapping and killing three teenagers destroys the very public support the unity government needs. This is clearly something HAMAS is not going to do, but of course is perfect for Israel to do and then frame HAMAS as part of Netanyahu's promise to wreck the unity government.

One more point. In the photo showing the line search is a dead (if you will pardon the expression) giveaway. Line searches are something that is done when you already know what you are searching for is in the area. They were TOLD the bodies would be there.

I think we can safely presume that if HAMAS were stupid enough to engage in a stunt that would crush public support for them, they know how to make sure the bodies would never be found.

This whole affair is as obvious a setup as the Lavon affair, or Israel's attack on the USS Liberty. In both cases, Israel tried to frame Egypt for actions carried out by Israel. On the basis of that history alone, prudence demands skepticism of Israel's claims.

The “12 Commandments” of the Israel Lobby

To help readers with this Orwellian dilemma, I offer these “12 Commandments of the Israel Lobby,” to be memorized if possible in a venue featuring the theme song of “The Twilight Zone” in the background.

1. The Israel Lobby does not exist. In those cases where it does exist, its conclusions cannot be questioned.

2. All criticisms of Israel are false. They are invented by anti-Semites, self-hating Jews, and terrorists. Also by crypto-Nazis, apostates and liars.

3. All critics of Israel must be punished by extracting a public apology. Some offenders may be required to apologize more than once, if they do not grovel sufficiently the first time around.

4. Those who criticize Israel and do not publicly apologize must be endlessly harassed, and fired from their jobs if possible. In academia they must be denied tenure.

5. Any Arab or Muslim that criticizes Israel is a terrorist, and deserves to die.

Israeli Air Force Carries Out 34 Air Strikes Against Gaza Amidst Threats of ‘Vengeance’

The WAFA news agency has reported that Israeli F-16 fighter jets fired missiles into different areas of the Gaza Strip, mainly in agricultural and open areas, in addition to several homes and civilian property.

WAFA reported that the army bombarded Gaza, Rafah, Khan Younis, the Central District and the Northern District of the besieged coastal region, adding that Israeli navy ships also participated in the attacks.

Local sources said dozens of Israeli drones remained in the Gaza skies all night, while Israeli helicopters also continue to fly over the Gaza Strip, firing rounds of live ammunition.

Bodies of Three Missing Israeli Teens Found Near Hebron, Source Says

The bodies of three Israeli teenagers who were kidnapped in the West Bank earlier this month have been found north of the city of Hebron, a source confirmed to ABC News today.

Hamas, the Palestinian militant group accused by Israel of taking the boys, has denied kidnapping the teens, though senior Israeli and Palestinian officials agree that the abductors were likely tied to -- or part of -- Hamas but operating without orders from the organization's leadership.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So now Israel will uncork on HAMAS on the basis of an unfounded accusation. Just like the US with Saddam's nuclear weapons.

Report: Israel tells U.S. it would act to save Jordan from Islamists

Israeli diplomats have told their American counterparts that Israel would be prepared to take military action to save the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan if it came under attack by jihadist militants, the Daily Beast reported on Saturday.

The threat posed to Jordan by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) which has already taken over wide swathes of Iraq and Syria, is of deep concern to the Obama administration and was the subject of a confidential briefing by administration officials to senators last week, according to the online news site.

The chief concern is that an attack on Jordan would inevitably drag Israel and possibly the United States into the fighting.

“Jordan could not repel a full assault from ISIS on its own at this point,” one senator was quoted as saying. Jordan “will ask Israel and the United States for as much help as they can get.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am getting more than a slight chill along my spine, upon reading this.

My question has to be, what is the quid pro quo the Israeli government is expecting from such an agreement?!?

The ability to to militarily occupy Jordan indefinitely, "for its own good"?!?

Were I King Abdullah II of Jordan, I would be more than a little bit wary of this Israeli offer.

The Strange Death of Jim Morrison

Jim Morrison came from a military family. His father was a career U.S. Navy officer and a graduate of the Naval Academy. Admiral G.S. Morrison was one of the youngest Navy officers ever selected to become a Rear Admiral at the age of 47-years-old. Then a young Ensign, Admiral Morrison was stationed at Pearl Harbor, and was an eyewitness to the attack on Dec. 7, 1941. He flew fighter aircraft in the South Pacific during the last year of WW II and again during the Korean War.

Jim Morrison and his family were frequently moving during the late 1940's through the 1960's to new assignments his father was ordered to report to. While Jim Morrison was in college at UCLA film school, his father was leading a battle carrier group off the coast of South Vietnam in 1964.
You can read his biography here in this article:
signonsandiego.com/uniontrib/20081128/news_1m28morrison.html

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unlike John McCain's father, Admiral McCain, who perpetuated the cover-up of Israel's attack on the USS Liberty, Jim Morrison's father, Admiral Morrison, was apparently very public about declaring the attack intentional, a false-flag stunt by Israel to trick the United States into war against Egypt. As Morrison became more famous, he became a threat to Israel's continuance of the USS Liberty deception. Like John Lennon, Morrison's popularity with young people became a serious threat to the ongoing war plans.

Liberman: Israeli Arabs who demonstrated against IDF are terrorists

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel started using the phrase "anti-Semite" so much and so often it lost its shock value and hence any real meaning. Israel is starting to do the same thing with the word "terrorist", applying it to everyone they disagree with that it too will lose all shock value and simply become part of the cacophony of meaningless noise coming from Israel's government!

Triangulation: Israel-Turkey-Kurdish Oil Deal Points to Possible Alliance

The reports about the selling of Kurdish oil to Israel via Turkey open new vistas for triangular economic relations between Israel, Turkey, and the Kurds. It may also pave the way to improved political relations between Israel and Turkey. In the 1960s there existed a discreet peripheral alliance between Israel, Iran, and the Kurds. That alliance, to which the United States was a quiet partner for a short time, was aimed at, among other things, supporting the Kurds in their fight against the government in Baghdad. However, the main flaws of this alliance were its secretiveness, which made it in a way unbinding, and the fact that it was solely militarily oriented. A similar alliance can be forged now between Israel, Turkey, and the Kurds, but unlike the earlier one, it should be open and based on joint economic interests, which might guarantee its longevity.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, at this point, Iraq has been, effectively, balkanized, between the rise of ISIS, which is just on the border of Baghdad as I type this, the Russian military intervention here, and the ascent of Kurdistan.

For all the blood and money spent, the US has, effectively, lost control of Iraq, both militarily and monetarily.

Has the pathological inability to think things through to their logical conclusion become a prerequisite to serving in the American government?!?

Because in looking at the current epic fails of both American domestic and foreign policies, the short answer has to be, HELL, YES!!

Secret Soviet Reveals: Wiezmann Outlined the Nakba as Early as 1941

Maisky, a former Menshevik of Jewish origin, kept a highly personal diary. He recorded conversations with five British prime ministers, as well as with many other prominent British politicians.

In this extract, written on 3 February 1941, Maisky recounts his brief meeting with the Zionist leader Chaim Weizmann, later the first president of Israel. Maisky provides crucial insights into the history of Zionism including the brutality of the Jewish plan for Palestine and the Middle East. Noticeably, the document reveals that an intention to expel the Palestinians was explored by Zionist leaders as early as 1941.

Elderly woman falls victim to Dead Sea pressure tactics

Over two weekends, an 82-year-old woman was bullied into buying $5000 worth of cosmetics – mostly wrinkle cream for a range of different skin types.

On the first occasion, Dead Sea Spa staff kept the woman at the booth after the mall had closed, making three separate sales totalling more than $3000, taking partial EFTPOS payments, and then accompanying her to ATMs around the mall to pay the balance in cash.

On the second occasion the elderly woman was sold more cosmetics in two separate $999 sales, emptying her bank account.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We have those same kiosks here in Hawaii and they are very pushy, standing in your way and not allowing you to pass until you buy something. We can't, of course. Boycott aside the Dead Sea products contain chemicals my wife reacts badly to. But even after I mention that they still try to get us to buy something as if it is a ransom to let us go our way. We avoid that section of the mall just to steer clear of those people at the kiosks and if other customers are doing the same it cannot be good for the other retailers around those kiosks.

It is well known that, sometime in the eighth to ninth centuries, the Khazars, a warlike Turkic people, converted to Judaism and ruled over a vast domain in what became southern Russia and Ukraine. What happened to them after the Russians destroyed that empire around the eleventh century has been a mystery. Many have speculated that the Khazars became the ancestors of Ashkenazi Jews.

At 1:00 a.m., the soldiers invaded the house of Nizar Abdullah Sadaq Ziyaada in Madama. They asked Ziyaada about the whereabouts of his money and proceeded to ransack the house. They drilled holes into the walls and threatened to destroy his home. They found a total of roughly 200,000 shekels underneath a cupboard and in various hiding places throughout the house. Finally, the soldiers took all of the money, two laptops, and several mobile phones before leaving.

The reasons for the theft of Ziyaada’s money are unclear.

Would Israel kill the three settlers to crush Palestinian unity?

Three Israeli settlers are missing, allegedly kidnapped in Al-Khalil (Hebron). But there seems to be more here than a simple kidnapping.

Israel is engaged in a frenzy of retaliation, killings, mass arrests, a reign of terror across lands they illegally occupy, a pattern of war crimes, inhuman abuses, also not atypical of what we have seen so often from Israel.

Nothing about this “kidnapping” makes sense. No demands have been made, no “proof of life” sent. It is highly unlikely that these young people will be found alive and, based on the behavior of Israel, it quite likely seems that this was the idea all along.

The likelihood that Israel has chosen a “blood sacrifice” to sustain their obsession with "national victimhood” has to be considered.

House Votes to Increase Israeli Military Aid by Another $131 Million

Another Defense Appropriations bill means another chance for the US Congress to shovel an increased amount of military aid at Israel, with the latest bill out of the House adding $131 million in missile defense funding over last year’s level.

The $131 million wasn’t requested by anyone, and was simply backed on to the funding requested by the Obama Administration, with hawks saying the “missiles regularly fired at Israel from Gaza” justified the increase.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To all the members of the House who voted to approve this measure: please move to Israel, and run for the Knesset.

When we have no more Vets sleeping in our streets, and are getting decent, timely medical care; when we have no more infrastructure crumbling; when we have have no more of a rush in the increase of child poverty in this country; THAT is the time to look at possibly some military aid to any other country.

But until that time, that 131 million should be spent carefully, and prudently, to fix the problems right here at home.

With allegiances to foreign governments and large corporations (which fund election cycles), the US Congress needs to own the reality that their constituents understand that they are no longer represented by their alleged representatives in Congress.

And the question has to be asked is, how will Americans deal with this reality?!?I will suggest (and hope) with extreme calmness and peace.

Deputy minister: Shut off electricity in West Bank, Gaza

Israel should “shut off the electricity in the West Bank and Gaza” in response to rocket fire in the south and the abduction of three Israeli teens earlier this month, Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon said Sunday.

“In my opinion there is room for extensive actions against the civilian population,” Danon said in an interview with Radio Darom. “I am saying something harsh here, but I believe it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is apparent that Deputy Minister Danon needs to be reminded that collective punishment is considered a war crime.

And the reality is, we don't know who, precisely, abducted these kids at all. It could have been a publicity stunt by the Israeli government itself, as false flag ops are rather routine for them. And believe me, I do hope and pray that these kids are OK, as I do for every child, and particularly those having the atrocious bad luck to be living in war zones.

I know I cannot begin to imagine their parent's anguish, at this point.

Automatically blaming the Palestinians is convenient for the Israeli government: but it doesn't mean that is what actually occurred.

But let us say, for the sake of argument, that they were held by Palestinian forces; wouldn't they be more valuable alive than dead, to ultimately be used as bargaining chips for a return of some Palestinians held in Israeli jails? Perhaps in trade Palestinian political prisoners?

I hope the kids are found safe, well, and alive.

MORE THAN 250 PALESTINIAN CHILDREN WERE KIDNAPPED IN RECENT MONTHS

Israel is violating international children’s rights agreements by detaining Palestinian minors, and it is trying to cover up these violations with the story of the three missing settlers.”

“Detaining Palestinian children from their houses in the middle of the night without informing their parents and families of the reasons for their detention is kidnapping.”

AMERICAN JEWS HAVE BECOME THE GREATEST THREAT TO ISRAEL

zionism is today confronted with its greatest challenge since 1948. It’s not coming from the Arab states or the Palestinians, but rather their problem is the American Jewish community itself.

Once the greatest support group for Israel, that support is dwindling daily as more and more Jews openly support the Movement to Boycott and Divest from Israel.

As the government of Israel continues its reign of terror against the people of Palestine, as more lands are stolen to build and expand the illegal settlements, a growing sector of Jewry is finally waking up to the fact that this is all wrong …. and are doing something about it.

How Israel has betrayed America

A recent report by Newsweek magazine that Israel has spied on the United States at "an alarming level" and has done so "more than any other ally does" raises a very serious issue concerning how much Israel has betrayed America, which is something that the American mainstream media have time and again refused to debate in public. For clarification, the word "betrayed" here means something "damaging" to American national interests.

In fact, the case of Israel's espionage on the U.S. is only one among different problems which have damaged American national interests due to the actions of Israel over the last few decades. Consider, for illustration, four major evidences as explained below.

Israel jails 20% of Palestinian children in solitary confinement: monitor

Israel is placing increasing numbers of arrested Palestinian children in solitary confinement, an international children’s rights group said in a report issued Monday.

The report came just months after Israel’s army, under international pressure to introduce reforms, agreed to test alternative treatment for children it detains in the West Bank.

In more than one in five cases recorded by Defense for Children International (DCI) in 2013, children detained for questioning by the army reported “undergoing solitary confinement,” it said in a statement.

BAD NEWS FIRST ~~ THEN GOOD NEWS ABOUT PALESTINE

In the past 10 days, Israeli occupation soldiers murdered 7 Palestinians (including a 13 year old child), injured dozens, kidnapped nearly 400, demolished many houses, destroyed contents and broken doors on hundreds of homes invaded in the middle of the night, blocked travel to hundreds of thousands, and continues to imprison thousands many on hunger strike for being held without charge for months. One of the people they kidnapped is also Samer Aleisawi who is famous for having the longest hunger strike in history as a political prisoner. He was released only after human rights activists and human rights organizations exerted significant pressure on Israel He was now kidnapped using the excuse of three missing colonial settlers (which maybe a false flag operation to detract from the suffering of thousands of Palestinian political prisoners).

Israel claims Assad’s forces behind cross-border attack that killed teen

Israel’s Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said on Tuesday that military forces loyal to the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad were behind a cross-border attack that killed an Israeli teenager.

“We received all the analyses and intelligence: it was clear that it was Syrian authorities,” Lieberman told public radio.

“Assad’s forces fired at the Israeli civilian, on the vehicles that had stopped by the border, and they need to pay the price,” he added.

The 13-year-old Arab Israeli, the son of a defence ministry contractor, was killed on the Golan Heights on Sunday when a missile hit the car he was in with his father.

The army said it was a deliberate attack against Israel, but was initially uncertain as to whether regime or opposition forces were behind it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Israeli Foreign Minister Lieberman: why in the name of heaven would al-Assad's military fire into Israel, knowing it was the most completely stupid thing they could possibly do, and knowing how you, particularly, would LOVE an excuse to invade Syria?!?

Sir, the short, rational answer is, they wouldn't.

And how difficult would it be to get one of the hired mercenaries to fire a rocket in order to target the car in which the kid got killed?

Sir, the short, rational answer is, not very.

Missing Israeli settlers: Al Jazeera English’s distorted reporting

Gaza – Al Jazeera English’s reporting on the missing Israeli settlers was not naive and it is rather impossible to classify it as part of the rhetoric of neutrality and objective reporting on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

It is simply deliberate coverage that targets the Palestinians’ presence on their own land and their just cause, while giving leverage to the “perseverance” of the Israeli society living in a jungle of “barbaric” Palestinians. Al Jazeera English correspondent Jane Ferguson started her report a few days ago by focusing on the feelings of Israelis and specifically their shock following the [alleged] capture of three Israelis about 10 days ago.

Soldiers have also been searching wells, abandoned caves and other possible hideouts in the large Hebron district.

One would think the neoconservatives who engineered the Iraq War – the worst disaster for the United States since Vietnam – would never emerge from hiding.

Not so. With dazzling chutzpah, former Vice President Dick Cheney, the real power in the Bush administration, just claimed President Barack Obama was responsible for the growing mess in Iraq.

Obama is a wimp allowing America’s foes to run rampant across the Mideast and Eastern Europe, growled Cheney. He wants US troops to reoccupy Iraq, and maybe Syria. Cheney’s blustering was applauded by another over-the-hill dotard, Republican party leader Sen. John McCain.

Out from the Washington woodwork crept a swarm of neoconservatives. They joined Cheney in blasting Obama over Iraq and calling for more wars against the Muslim world.

Jewish Settlers Attack Funeral Of Slain Palestinian In Ramallah

Sunday evening a number of fanatic Israeli settlers attacked the funeral of a Palestinian, killed by the Israeli army in al-Biereh, near the central West Bank city of Ramallah, wounding one Palestinian.

The Palestinians were participating in the funeral procession of resident Mohammad at-Tareefi, 30, in Jabal at-Tawil neighborhood, when settlers of the Psagot illegitimate settlement opened fire on them, wounding one resident.

Several minutes later, dozens of soldiers arrived at the scene, and fired live ammunition at the residents, and several homes, in al-Biereh.

The Israeli military attack pushed dozens of residents to advance towards Psagot settlements, and hurl stones at it.

Ramallah raid on RT’s office: Why the IDF story doesn't add up

When asked for an explanation, IDF officials said the raid was not directly targeting RT, but “the lessor of the offices” Palmedia, which “cooperates with Hamas.”

“The aim of the operation conducted in the small hours of Saturday, was a Palestinian company Palmedia. The reason is that it provides services to Al-Aqsa TV, which has propagandist and inflammatory content. That’s why the search was performed there,” an IDF representative told RIA Novosti news agency.

The first inconsistency with the real situation is that Palmedia does not provide any service to Al-Aqsa. In fact, the Palestinian Hamas-linked TV channel employs the services of Transmedia and is based in another building.

Presbyterian General Assembly Biennial Meeting: My Message on Israel and Palestine

As the Presbyterian General Assembly gathers for its biennial meeting, I reach out in prayer and solidarity that the Assembly will make a strong witness for reconciliation, justice and peace. I am aware that the Assembly will consider eight overtures on the confounding and intractable conflict in Israel and Palestine, however I am especially urging the Assembly to adopt the overture naming Israel as an apartheid state through its domestic policies and maintenance of the occupation, and the overture calling for divestment of certain companies that contribute to the occupation of the Palestinian people. Both are worthy of adoption, by speaking truth in the first instance, and owning up to the Church's complicity in maintaining the occupation through its investments in the second.

He showed that the procedure was a crime against humanity as defined in the Nuremberg Conventions ("Doctrine of Informed Consent") and predicted it was immoral and would lead to organ stealing. This is not very different in its criminality to the described in State of Israel Forced the Sterilization of Ethiopian Women.

Tom found himself under financial attack by individuals identifying themselves as Jewish, who were acting on the basis that he and the publication BioEngineering News was anti-Semitic. An AJC lawyer offered to "fix things" with the Jewish community if Tom would retract the article.

Palestinian kidnapped by Israeli forces in Awarta

At approximately 2:00 AM on the 15th June, Israeli soldiers conducted a night raid in the village of Awarta near Nablus, which was one of a series of raids and closures carried out by Israeli forces, following the disappearance of three Israeli settler youth close to al-Khalil (Hebron). Palestinian witnesses state that over 50 Israeli solders surrounded the village.

During the operation around 20 Israeli military personnel forced entry to, and stormed the home of Sameer Abu Shayb. Palestinian residents state that the soldiers were aggressive and had their faces covered. Sameer was then handcuffed and interrogated at his home over the phone by a commanding officer, for approximately 15 minutes. Sameer was not accused of any offence, but was then taken outside, blindfolded, and abducted by Israel forces.

This is the sixth time that Sameer has been imprisoned in recent years, totalling approximately 6 months.

Israel troops kill 14-year-old boy in hunt for three missing teenagers

Israeli soldiers killed a Palestinian 14-year-old in the occupied West Bank Friday as they pressed a crackdown on the Islamist Hamas movement in their search for three missing teenagers.

Troops also wounded two Palestinians in a refugee camp just outside Jerusalem as clashes flared in the face of the massive military operation in which they have detained 330 Palestinians over the past week, medical sources said.

Israel accuses Hamas of last week’s abduction of the two 16-year-olds and a 19-year-old from a hitch-hiking stop in the West Bank, an allegation the Islamist group has dismissed as “stupid”.

But Israel has seized on the opportunity to drive a wedge between Hamas and the Palestinian leadership, who formed a merged administration for the West Bank and Gaza Strip just this month for the first time in seven years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The IDF kills innocent Palestinians, and visits collective punishment upon them, all the time; it is standard operating procedure for them.

I would not be too surprised if Israeli agents abducted these kids, and is holding them, as another "cause celebre" to blame on the Palestinians.

But Hamas and Fatah have to stand fast in their moves toward a unity government; any dissolution now, and the Palestine they seek will not even have the square footage of Lichtenstein!

ISRAELI TERROR CAMPAIGN ~~ TWO VIEWS FROM PALESTINE

Palestinians in the West Bank are showing spectacular steadfastness and resilience in the face of an unprecedented rampage of terror and vandalism by the Israeli occupation army.

The rampage, which began five days ago when three army-age settlers went missing and were presumed kidnapped by suspected Palestinian militants, is assuming unmistakable terrorist proportions.

This terror includes destroying homes by missiles, storming homes and blowing up gates and outer doors, vandalizing property, beating up innocent people and grossly mistreating children and women.

According to the Palestinian Prisoner Club, a body that monitors Israeli treatment of Palestinian detainees, Israeli troops have so far raided and thoroughly vandalized 750 homes in the Hebron region alone.

Netanyahu should look at his own record

Standing in front of a map of what both no doubt hope will one day be Greater Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu and Tony Blair have today given a practical demonstration of chutzpah. Translated roughly as “audacity” (but could also mean “insolence”), the two men with blood on their hands tried to convince the world that the lives of three illegal Jewish settlers – “children,” said the Israeli PM – are worth more than the lives of over 1,300 Palestinian children killed by the Israelis since September 2000 at an average rate of 3 murders per day. This is entirely consistent with the view expressed by at least one extremist Rabbi, Yaacov Perrin, at the funeral of Baruch Goldstein, the terrorist settler who murdered 29 Palestinians while they prayed in Hebron’s Ibrahimi Mosque in 1984: “Even one million Arabs,” claimed Perrin, “are not worth a Jewish fingernail.”

The Israeli military on Sunday called up a limited number of reserves and is now focusing most of its efforts to find Eyal Yifrah, 19, from Elad, Gil-Ad Shaer, 16, from Talmon, and Naftali Frenkel, 16, from Nof Ayalon in the Hebron area.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu confirmed on Sunday that Hamas is behind the abduction. Netanyahu asserted that he holds the Palestinian Authority responsible for the teens' fate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Could this latest Israeli false-flag be any more obvious? Why would the new Palestinian Unity Government do something that stupid? It doesn't make any sense. Such a kidnapping only harms the public support the Palestinians need, which is a perfect motive for Israel to fake this kidnapping and blame it on Hamas and the PA as part of Netanyahu's agenda to destabilize and discredit the new unity government.

The area where the "kidnappings" occurred was under complete IDF control at the time, and somehow one of the "victims" managed to make a phone call to confirm they were kidnapped, but without disclosing where they were. One wonders in this age of total surveillance how it is that Israel could not trace where the call came from, thereby justifying wide-spread attacks into Gaza and the West Bank!

Israel has a long history of false-flags, from the Lavon affair, to the USS Liberty, to the Raid on Entebbe, to the USS Cole, right up to 9-11 itself. This is just more of the same.

ANGUISH ON BOTH SIDES OF THE WALL IN ISRAEL/PALESTINE

The Obama administration on Sunday joined Israel in implicating the militant group Hamas in connection with the kidnapping of three Israeli teens and called the move a “despicable terrorist act.”

The teens, including one who holds US citizenship, disappeared late Thursday apparently while hitchhiking in the country’s West Bank region.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is an obvious Israeli false-flag as part of their campaign to destabilize and delegitimize the Palestinian unity government. Hamas has no reason to do such a stupid thing as kidnap three kids right now. Such an act can only damage their public support, which is ample reason for Israel to grab those kids and blame Hamas for it. The "Kidnapping" happened in an area under the total control of the IDF. And the area is closed to hitchhiking as well. PLus, one of the "kidnapped" kids manages to get to a phone long enough to confirm that they are the victims of a deliberate kidnapping, but fails to report where they are and hangs up before the call can be traced, thereby justifying wide-range attacks and arrests all across Gaza and the West Bank by Israel!

Kerry and Obama are crying crocodile tears over the one American in the group, which stands in stark contrast to the US Government's reactions to Rachel Corrie and Furgan Dogan, two Americans murdered openly by Israel.

Kerry points at Hamas in Israel kidnappings that include teen with US citizenship

The Obama administration on Sunday joined Israel in implicating the militant group Hamas in connection with the kidnapping of three Israeli teens and called the move a “despicable terrorist act.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Last August, John Kerry assured the world that Syria's President Assad had gassed his own Alawite supporters using sarin gas, virtually in front of the UN chemical weapons inspectors, on the very day they arrived in Syria.

Then someone asked Kerry why Assad would do such a stupid thing, and Kerry went silent. Because motive was the missing piece that betrayed the whole lie. There was no reason for Assad to do something that provocative and insane, and eventually the rest of the claims made in August unraveled and were revealed as more war propaganda, not unlike the whopper about Saddam's nuclear weapons.

John Kerry, proving that marrying a ketchup fortune doesn't necessarily make you any smarter, has made the same mistake again. Kerry is echoing Netanyahu's claim that Hamas kidnapped these three boys. But why would Hamas do such a stupid and provocative thing right now, when they are trying to win world recognition of the new Palestinian unity government.

Netanyahu, on the other had, desperate to discredit and derail the new unity government, has plenty of motive for yet another Israeli false-flag attack, kidnapping the boys and blaming Hamas. And Israel's history of full of such dirty tricks, from the Lavon affair to the attack on the USS Liberty to 9-11 itself.

To uncover when the government is lying to you, always look for what should be there and isn't. In the case of last August, what was missing was a motive for Assad to gas his own people. What is missing today is a motive for Hamas to carry out an act that will damage the public support it needs to move their unity government forward.

Think, people, THINK! It makes the propagandists very nervous!

And would someone ask John Kerry how he feels about US citizens Rachel Corrie and Furkan Dogan who were openly murdered by Israel?

Eric Cantor Defeated: Rising Awareness of Jewish Influence behind “Shock” Primary Defeat

APPEAL FOR REASON AND SANITY

Three Israeli teenagers seem to have been kidnapped Thursday evening. The government was very quick to declare this the work of a ‘terrorist organisation’. They further stated that it was a direct result of the recent cooperation between Hamas and the Palestinian Authority. It was obviously motivated by forces opposed to the reconciliation efforts …. as far as the Israeli government is concerned, it is working right into their own plans of disrupting whatever possible unity can come out of said reconciliation.

Thousands of armed Israeli troops are at the moment roaming through Palestinian towns and villages in the occupied West Bank. There is a danger that scores of innocent Palestinians will be killed by these soldiers.

We appeal to whoever is responsible for this madness to release the boys so they can return safely to their families. The concept of ‘an eye for an eye’ will only lead to the blindness of many an innocent victim.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With the report that one of the kids managed to phone police to say he was kidnapped, I am more than ever convinced that this is another Israeli false-flag to justify brutal military incursions into Palestine.

The dead man and one of the wounded were traveling on a motorbike and were the apparent targets. A young boy, who was passing by on foot, was also wounded.

Eric Cantor’s Defeat Is Also Netanyahu’s

One issue wasn’t talked about, though I wonder if it subliminally registered with some anti-Cantor voters. Cantor in 2010 more or less presented himself as Bibi Netanyahu’s congressman. Newly Elevated by the GOP House takeover as the incoming majority leader, he held a private meeting with the Likud leader at the New York Regency. No other Americans were present; Netanyahu was joined by Israel’s ambassador and national security advisor.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Subliminal" had nothing to do with it! The American people see clearly the corrosive influence of the Israel lobby on the US Government.

Israel descriptor sparks boycott threat

ISLAMIC nations furious over the Abbott government's policy shift on Israeli settlements have warned they could boycott Australian farm exports if the stance is not reversed.

The government last week ruled out using the term “occupied” to describe Israeli settlements in East Jerusalem, deeming the term pejorative and unhelpful to the peace process in the Middle East. That has prompted an outcry from Islamic countries, who have written to Foreign Minister Julie Bishop demanding an explanation why this controversial decision was made without consultation. Palestinian senior diplomat in Australia described the move as “unprecedented” and warned Australia had isolated itself on the world stage by backing “illegal” settlements.

“This statement is not helpful at all to promote the peace process,” Palestinian Delegation Ambassador Izzat Abdulhadi said.

“I think it's an invitation to Israel to continue its settlement activity.”

ABBAS PRAYS FOR PEACE BY PREYING ON PALESTINE

Later in the week Palestinian journalists who oppose his leadership were savagely attacked while covering a demonstration in the Occupied West Bank city of Ramallah.

And the attacks on the journalists are part of a wider crackdown by Palestinian Authority de facto leader Mahmoud Abbas against Palestinians who oppose his rule or mobilize for Palestinian rights.

The autopsy — which was performed by a team of specialists led by the head of the institute, Saber al-Aloul, with the presence of Danish, Portuguese, American, and two Israeli doctors — concluded that the Palestinian youth was killed by Israeli forces.

Fearing jihadi attack on Israeli planes, Egypt sends troops to border

The Egyptian military has deployed a large military force near the border crossing with Israel at Taba in order to prevent rocket and missile attacks on Israel, and especially on Israeli civilian airplanes

Egyptian sources estimate the force is about the size of a battalion, or several hundred men. The move was coordinated with Israel.

Egypt is concerned that jihadist operatives in the Sinai Peninsula who are affiliated with al-Qaeda may try to down an Israeli civilian aircraft flying near the border during its approach for landing in the resort town of Eilat.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Interesting timing. I wonder if some false flag is to happen close to Israel/Egyptian border, to be blamed on the government of Syria, as a pretext for an attack against it, as everything else the US has tried to do to get regime change here to happen has failed, and miserably.

Iran questions nuclear deal deadline as talks 'hit wall'

Iran, after talks with senior U.S. officials, questioned whether a July deadline for a nuclear deal with world powers will be met, fueling doubts on the outcome as France spoke out, saying talks on curbing Tehran's uranium enrichment had "hit a wall".

Iran's talks with six major powers on curbing its nuclear program in exchange for an end to Western sanctions could be extended for six months if no deal is reached by a July 20 deadline agreed by all parties, a senior Iranian official said.

While an extension is possible under the terms of the talks, experts believe both Iran and the international powers may face domestic political pressures to argue for better terms during this extra time period, further complicating negotiations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The wild card in all of this is Israel, and if Israel believes it can make a calculated military multiple-strike against Iran's nuclear facilities with little repercussions, it will do so, if these talks do not reach an agreement by 20 July.

I would, however, like to politely remind the adults in the room in the Israeli government, that Russian officials have stated very openly that should Iran be attacked, Russia will come to its aid militarily; just one of those pesky little realities which the Israeli government may want to take into account when contemplating such a strike!!

Rivlin victory could spell the end for Netanyahu

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's worst nightmare became reality on Tuesday when his hated faction rival Reuven (Rubi) Rivlin was elected to be Israel's 10th president. Netanyahu pulled out all the stops to avoid a Rivlin presidency, including attempting to do away with the position all together and offering the job to Nobel Prize winner Elie Wiesel who doesn't even have Israeli citizenship.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yet another reason to disregard the Nobel Prize. Elie Wiesel's fame and Nobrel Prize rests on his claim to have survived the Nazi Death Camp (reg trademark Israel) at Buchenwald. However as it turns out, Wiesel's story was simply one of a flood of holocaust hoax memoirs and the photo of him at Buchenwald was shown to be a total fake.

“Today, almost 20 years after Oslo, we can see clearly that the idea of separating the [Israeli and Palestinian] nations failed.”

“For some reason the settlement enterprise is being accused of being an obstacle to peace. Personally, I explain at each possible forum that the obstacle to peace is the objection by the Arabs to it and the fact that they do not want us here”.

Only yesterday came news that Syrian rebels plan to give Israel the Golan Heights in exchange for creation of a no-fly zone against the Assad regime. In an even bolder move, it is now revealed, Israel will withdraw its settlers from communities beyond the settlement blocs—and relocate them at least temporarily to Ukraine. Ukraine made this arrangement on the basis of historic ties and in exchange for desperately needed military assistance against Russia. This surprising turn of events had an even more surprising origin: genetics, a field in which Israeli scholars have long excelled.

The American Legions Leadership Allegiance to Israel

Immediately following Israel’s attack on America’s premier spy ship as it navigated in International waters on 8 June 1967, the American Legion Membership passed a strong resolution on the incident.

Resolution #508 condemned Israeli actions as an “apparently deliberate attack.”

Resolution #508 called on the U.S. government to “conduct a complete and thorough investigation of this incident” and to demand full payment from the Israeli government for compensation to the families, crew, and to the United States for the damage to the ship.
“After the resolution was passed, there were complaints from the Jewish War Veterans of America and some Jewish members of the American Legion, and the resolution was allowed to die without action. The American Legion member who proposed the resolution stated later that the lack of follow through was due to pressure by pro-Israel organizations.”

ISLAM MUST RESPOND TO AUSTRALIA’S NEWEST POLICIES REGARDING THE STATUS OF JERUSALEM

The Arab world, if indeed there is still an entity as such, and Muslims around the world must respond in a meaningful manner to the latest affront coming from Australia.
*
This week, the Australian Attorney-General George Brandis said in a speech that his country ought to stop viewing East Jerusalem as an occupied city.

Brandis is notorious for his racist views and xenophobia. Some of his critics have already described him as “Nazi-minded.” The Australian press recently quoted him as saying that “people have the right to be bigots,” which made racist and anti-immigration groups in Australia ecstatic.

Unfortunately, much of the man’s vindictive chauvinism is reserved for Arabs and Muslims. His remarks about E. Jerusalem encapsulate a morbid mind-set not unlike that of the people who wanted to create the Third Reich.

ENDING THE OCCUPATION, HOUSE BY HOUSE, VILLAGE BY VILLAGE

This video shows villagers in Silwad, east of Ramallah in the occupied West Bank, expelling a group of Israeli soldiers from a home they occupied.

In the video, a group of community members – women and men – knock on the door. A distressed woman answers and says the soldiers had come into the house and confiscated the family’s telephones and keys.

The villagers then search the house and find the heavily armed occupation soldiers in a bedroom.

They confront the soldiers, who try to give orders to the villagers, but instead the villagers order the soldiers out of the house. At one point, when a women pushes a soldier to get him out of the house, the soldier turns around and appears to threaten her with his weapon.

The New McCarthyism

Once again vast sums of money are being spent on a war, this time a hot one and getting hotter. Once again parties with a vested interest are out to smear and destroy anyone who dares ask if the wars are worth the sacrifice of our young people (not to mention the money), indeed if there really is any point at all to the wars aside from justifying the flow of money to defense contractors.

But the Soviet Union has gone out of business. The word "communist" doesn't carry the same psychological impact it used to, so the war hawk smear squad has come up with a new one, "Anti-Semite." Like "Communist", "Anti-Semite" is used to ruin the lives of people who have not actually done anything wrong other than to challenge the war profiteers. It is a new word for an old trick, and I am amazed that they are still playing the same old game, but I guess the FBI can always find some dumb-assed idiot to fall for it and do their dirty work of wrecking a career for them.

Muhammad Abu al-Hummus told Ma’an that Israeli forces unexpectedly raided the village of al-Issawiya and fired stun grenades while crowds of Palestinians were participating in a traditional wedding march.

One man was hit directly in the forehead with a stun grenade and taken to the hospital, Abu al-Hummus said.

Unity government may not be perfect, but it is good news for Palestine

Very few Palestinians expect the new unity government in Ramallah, composed of technocrats unaffiliated with any political faction, to liberate Palestine from the shackles of Zionism or defeat Israel and its guardian-ally, the United States. We don’t live in a fantasy and we all know the facts on the ground too well.

But the unity government, whose formation has been made possible thanks to last month’s reconciliation deal between Hamas, the Islamic liberation movement, and Fatah, the mainstream PLO faction, is ostensibly at least a welcome development for all Palestinians and their enduring just cause.

Yet Another Writer Has Admitted Faking Her Holocaust Memoir

But without the huge sums at stake, it’s unlikely that the case would have come back into the news. For the odd fact is that writing a fake Holocaust memoir has become, by now, a dog-bites-man story. Misha Defonseca is just the latest example of a genre that also includes Herman Rosenblat, author of the Oprah-endorsed Angel at the Fence—whose fraud was first exposed by The New Republic—and Benjamin Wilkomirski, author of Fragments: Memories of a Wartime Childhood.

Each of these books was popular and celebrated, before knowledgeable readers began to raise questions about their incredible details. In the end, each author had to retract his or her creation.

FLASHBACK 2006 - State Dept. Probes Use of Bombs

The State Department said yesterday that it has begun a preliminary investigation into allegations that Israel violated U.S. rules prohibiting the use of American-made cluster bombs in civilian areas during the recent war in Lebanon.

Quite a contrast to the US government praising Kiev's "restraint" as it uses heavy weapons against the Ukrainian people!

CHUTZPAH EPITOMIZED ~~ THEY ERASED OUR LAND BUT KEPT OUR RECIPES

This is the latest example of blatant cultural appropriation of indigenous Palestinian and regional culture to add to a long list that already includes falafel, hummus, olive oil, maftoul (“Israeli couscous”) and other staples that are frequently misrepresented and promoted as Israeli, while erasing or denying their connection to the country’s indigenous people and culture.

Jews demand more state funding, "Shoah" indoctrination & "hate speech" legislation

It should be perfectly clear to anyone paying attention to current affairs and politics that the organized Jewish community is the most cohesive and effective organized political lobbying force in Western politics today. In the United States, for example, the organized Jewish community and its various political lobbies - AIPAC, the American Jewish Congress, the Anti-Defamation League, etc. - essentially control the United States government, the electoral process, and both major political parties, dictating or heavily influencing and shaping both domestic and foreign policy. A similar situation prevails in Europe and the United Kingdom, perhaps only to a less blatant extent.

Israeli WMD Budget Revealed

Haaretz is covering the war of words (or hand-to-hand combat) between the Israeli defense and treasury ministries over its budget. There is a constant battle in which the defense ministry attempts to guilt and intimidate the political class into increasing the budget. They do so with shrill warnings about having to cancel military drills and training and being unready to fight the next war–all because of bean counter politicians who won’t properly fund the nation’s security.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, US Congress, it appears that you are collectively suffering from CMD (collective memory disorder).

Do you folks, who allegedly represent We the People, remember a little law you passed, called the Symington Amendment?

This law stipulates that if a country has nuclear weapons, and refuses to become a signatory to the NNPT, and allow their weapons to be inspected, that the US government could offer no financial or military aid to that country.

Well, it is pretty in your face, with the Haaretz article, that:

1. Israel has nuclear weapons.
2. Unlike Iran, Israel refuses to become a signatory to the NNPT
3. Unlike Iran, Israel refuses to allow its nuclear sites to be inspected.

So, ladies and gentlemen of Congress, can you please explain to the American people, with a straight face, as to why you are breaking this law by providing military and financial aid to Israel, when the Symington Amendment says specifically you cannot?!?!?

We are waiting...and none too patiently...for your reply.

In policy shift, Australia declares East Jerusalem is not occupied

The U.S. Has Been Speaking To Hamas Through Back Channels For More Than Six Months

United States officials have been holding secret back-channel talks with Hamas over the last six months to discuss their role in the newly formed unity government, according to two senior diplomatic sources with direct knowledge of the talks.

The meetings were held between U.S. intermediaries and Hamas’ leadership, which lives outside the Gaza Strip in third-party countries ranging from Egypt to Qatar and Jordan. Topics included the ceasefire agreement with Israel and the recently formed unity government between Hamas and Fatah.

During the talks, Hamas gave assurances that allowed the U.S. to support the unity government, despite heavy pressure by the Israeli government for them to condemn it, the diplomatic officials — one American and one Palestinian — said. They said those assurances including a commitment to maintaining a ceasefire with Israel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No bloody wonder that Netanyahu has been having such a hissy fit recently over the new unity government; he not only has he told his government not to negotiate with the new Hamas/Fatah government, but also is preventing them from traveling!!

Israel Security Cabinet: No Negotiation with Hamas Palestinian Government

The Israel Security Cabinet has unanimously decided to continue acting in accordance with its 24 April 2014 decision and to not negotiate with a Palestinian government with any backing or relationship from Hamas, a terrorist organization which calls for the destruction of Israel.

That Israel will act, including in the international arena, against the participation of terrorist organizations in elections and authorize the Prime Minister to impose additional sanctions on the Palestinian Authority.

Israel will hold the Palestinian Authority responsible for all actions that harm the security of Israel which originate in Judea, Samaria and the Gaza Strip.

July deadline for Iran nuclear deal appears in jeopardy: envoys

It is increasingly unlikely that six world powers and Iran will meet their July 20 deadline to negotiate a long-term deal for Tehran to curb its nuclear program in return for an end to economic sanctions, diplomats and analysts say.

In theory, an extension to the high-stakes talks should not be a problem if all sides want it. But President Barack Obama would need to secure the consent of Congress at a time of fraught relations between his administration and lawmakers.

The latest round of talks in Vienna last month ran into difficulties when it became clear that the number of centrifuge enrichment machines Iran wanted to maintain was well beyond what would be acceptable to the West. That disagreement, envoys said, can be measured in tens of thousands of centrifuges.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

AIPAC will strong-arm the US Congress into not consenting to an extension of these talks, as Israel wants the US to attack Iran to "neutralize it", and create regime change.

However, I would like to politely point out that Russia, already singularly displeased with the US/European engineered putsch in Ukraine, may very well decide to draw its own line in the sand, by coming to Iran's aid militarily.

I would also like to politely point out that the US military does not have the troop strength, the money, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war with Russia, if it sides with Iran; and that is what makes the military scenario so scarily dangerous here.

The 50 Most Influential Jews – Not a single humanist on the list

Yesterday The Jerusalem Post published its “list of the world’s 50 most influential Jews,” those who in one way or another have “worked tirelessly for the improvement of humanity and, in doing so, have made their mark on history.”

The truth is that the list does not exactly fit the Post’s description of it. Not a single humanist is listed; instead we find a catalogue of Jewish war criminals, financiers, gambling tycoons, ethnic cleanser advocates, a Holocaust fraudster, a few Rabbis with minimal importance even within the Jewish world and one Ethiopian entertainer.

I guess that for those who are still desperate to find a Jewish humanist, Masada 2000’s S.H.I.T List is the place to find them.

Netanyahu Looks to Gitmo to Justify Force-Feeding of Palestinian Hunger Strikers

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is aggressively pushing a bill that would green-light the force-feeding of Palestinian prisoners on hunger strike, citing the U.S. military's routine use of this practice against detainees at the Guantánamo Bay (Image: Addameer) offhsore prison.

Netanyahu told the security cabinet on Sunday to move more quickly on discussions of the bill, Haaretz reports.

The Israel National Bioethics Council andIsraeli Medical Association are vocally opposing the law, and the IMA vowed on Thursday to prohibit Israeli physicians from participating in force-feeding, which it likened to torture, according to reportingby Israel's Channel 2 News.

In response, Netanyahu declared that he would find doctors willing to carry out the controversial practice and mentioned the U.S.'s routine practice of force-feeding hunger striking Guantánamo Bay inmates.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What the prisoners at Gitmo and those Palestinians being held in indefinite detention have in common is, primarily, as follows: they have not been allowed anything remotely resembling due process, to either convict or acquit them.

Netanyahu doesn't want these prisoners to die, because of the potential of creating massive Palestinian unrest through allowing this.

Also, these men probably won't be released, ever, because their bodies, like the bodies of Gitmo inmates, may well bear witness to horrific torture to get them to "confess" to whatever officials wanted them to say in order to justify their detention.

The American officials don't really care if these prisoners die, but feel compelled to be seen as "doing something" to prevent them from dying, so NG tube feeding is what they have chosen.

This is punishment, pure and simple, for their wanting to die because they will not be released, ever, even those who have not been convicted of doing anything wrong.

I would suggest that if Netanyahu is so "gung-ho" on this procedure, that he should have it done to himself...with cameras rolling.

But the process is nasty, and not without consequences; ask any Northern Irish person who was on a hunger strike in jail during "the troubles".

TRINITITE! Why Iran will not attack the US or Israel.

Even if Iraq had possessed weapons of mass destruction (which we now know they did not), and even if Iraq had the long range ICBMs to reach across the Atlantic with (which we know they did not), Iraq would still not have been a threat to the US because any attack with a weapon of mass destruction would be national suicide.

Peres to Plead for Pollard – Again

President Shimon Peres will meet Sunday with MKs Uri Ariel and Ronit Tirosh who will hand him a letter for US president Barak Obama asking for the release of convicted Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard.

The letter bears the signatures of 80 Israeli lawmakers. Peres's office told Arutz Sheva that the president working hand in hand with the leaders of the Freedom for Pollard Committee to maximize efforts to secure his release.

Last week, Peres bureau chief Efrat Duvdevani and other senior staffers made arrangements for the President to receive and deliver the letter.

The President's Office noted that Peres will next meet with Obama in June to formally request Pollard's release on behalf of the citizens of Israel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to President Obama: Pollard was a complete, consummate traitor to his country, and the Israeli government should be grateful that he was not executed for his crimes against the US, and leave it at that.

Israeli forces attempt to arrest 2-year-old Palestinian child

Momen Shtayeh has seen and knows too much. There is a chance ? nay, a probability that due to witnessing the Israeli army's brutality and severe oppression in his village of Kufr Qaddoum, Momen might have grown up to be a warmongering Islamist.

Momen Shtayeh represents a threat to the security of the Israeli racist occupying state. Apparently, it is well known that due to his savvy nature, Momen has been involved in drawing up specialized blueprints to attack enemy bases.

So it all makes perfect sense that the most moral army in the world, the Israeli Defense Forces, the fourth strongest army, the upholders of the beacon of democracy and godly light, tried to arrest Mo?men on Monday, April 2nd.

The thing is, Momen is two-and-a-half years old.

CAN PEACE BECOME A REALITY USING THE SOCIAL MEDIA AS A TOOL?

In an address at the 2012 Launch startup conference in San Francisco, Shimon Peres, the president of Israel, told his audience that social media is crucial for the attainment of peace between Israel and Palestine. “The idea behind it is governments until now negotiated peace,” he said. “I think the best way to achieve peace is when the people negotiate peace directly by talking to each other.” Many of his constituents seem to agree, and the web-based community in that country has recently taken a collective stand for peaceful relations between the two long-time enemies.

UK warns of possible Easter terrorist attack in Nigeria

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am glad someone brought this up. As you know, tomorrow is Good Friday (not very good for the Rabbi on the cross, of course) and then Sunday we celebrate the day Jesus comes out of the tomb, sees his shadow and we get winter for another 6 weeks. Or something. Maybe he starts eating brains as revenge for all the time people eat his body. I can't keep this stuff straight.

But obviously, for those who would start a war between the Christians and the Muslims, these two holidays represent opportunities for highly symbolic false-flag attacks to trigger the war Netanyahu clearly is desperate to start. So, in between asking what rabbits have to do with Ishtar, be aware that there are very evil people who would use your religion against you.

Israel set to uproot 30,000 of its own Bedouin citizens

Neve Gordon explains why Israel's plans to move entire communities of its own Bedouin citizens from their ancestral lands in the Negev and put them in townships will deprive them of their livelihood and land rights.

”I asked Abu Afash what he thinks will happen if they do not reach an agreement with the government. He paused for a moment and then replied that … ‘they will not put us on buses and move us, they will simply shut down the schools and wait. When we see we cannot send our children to school we will “willingly" move’.

“This is how forced relocation becomes voluntary and how Israel will likely represent it to the world.” (Neve Gordon)

Israel asks US for $700 million in military aid

The Iron Dome is designed to intercept rockets fired from a relatively short range, while the Magic Wand intercepts missiles fired from a range of at least 70km, including cruise missiles and missiles with ballistic warheads such as the Squd, Shihab and Sejil.

According to sources privy to the deal, Jerusalem and Washington are currently discussing the aid package, which if approved will allow Israel to equip its defense apparatus with four additional Iron Dome batteries and accelerate the completion of the Magic Wand system, which is still under development.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have an issue which is puzzling me, and something perhaps someone in the White House, State Department, or Pentagon could possibly address for me, and for the American people.

According to the Symington Amendment, it is illegal for the US government to give any financial or military aid to any country which has nuclear weapons, and refuses to be a signatory to the NNPT.

Israel refuses to become a signatory to the NNPT, and has a well-documented nuclear arsenal. So why is the US government continuing to fund Israel, both militarily and financially, when such aid is illegal, under US law?!?

Israeli troops destroy four Palestinian homes and 52 electricity pylons

It is just now breaking that Israeli forces have razed four homes of Palestinians along with 52 electricity pylons near the town of Bethlehem in the occupied West Bank, according to Palestinian witnesses and a correspondent for AFP.

The AFP correspondent reported that this demolition left the residents in the area without any electricity, which could have many negative impacts on the quality of life of these besieged peoples.

These activities are hardly surprising given that the state of Israel recently spat in the face of the international community by refusing to cooperate with a probe conducted by the United Nations Human Rights Council and banning them from entering to investigate illegal settlements.

Spying on the Spies

If the Israelis have access to this comprehensive monitoring system, via an electronic “back door,” this means personal information could be readily passed around and used to discredit Israel’s perceived enemies in the US. Can fear be a big part of the explanation for the free pass given to Israel’s covert activities – fear of blackmail?

Oh, so you’re a vocal opponent of Israel’s policies in Palestine? Listen buddy, do we have a thick dossier on you! You’d better shut up – or else. What will your wife say when she sees that email – complete with lurid attachment – you sent the other night?
