BEX ALERT - HAMAS: Imminent Menace to Palestine

“Gaza was being separated from Palestine geographically by Israel’s occupation and morally by HAMAS’ occupation”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I hate to be the one to throw cold water on such a magnificent piece of propaganda, but HAMAS is the legally elected government of Gaza. The Gazans voted them in as the government in 2006. When Israel claims they are striking "HAMAS targets" they mean they are bombing the police stations, the fire departments, the water and sewage systems; infrastructure any government tries to provide for their people.

Israel military says it has shot down drone along southern coastline

Israel's military said Monday it downed a drone along its southern coastline, and fired two deadly airstrikes into the Gaza Strip, in its week-long campaign against Islamic militants.

The drone came from Gaza and was shot down by a Patriot surface-to-air missile near the southern city of Ashdod, the military said. It did not say what the drone was carrying and there was no immediate confirmation from Gaza on the use of unmanned aircraft.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

FOX News is claiming the drone is Iranian, part of Israel's plan to turn the attack on Gaza into a wider regional war including Lebanon, Syria, and Iran.

Gaza's Torment, Israel's Crimes, Our Responsibilities

At 3am Gaza time, July 9, in the midst of Israel’s latest exercise in savagery, I received a phone call from a young Palestinian journalist in Gaza. In the background, I could hear his infant child wailing, amidst the sounds of explosions and jet planes, targeting any civilian who moves, and homes as well. He just saw a friend of his in a car clearly marked “press” blown away. And he heard shrieks next door after an explosion but can’t go outside or he’ll be a likely target. This is a quiet neighborhood, no military targets – except Palestinians who are fair game for Israel’s high tech US-supplied military machine. He said that 70% of the ambulances have been destroyed, and that by then over 70 had been killed, and of the 300 or so wounded, about 2/3 women and children. Few Hamas activists have been hit – or rocket launching sites. Just the usual victims.

Here's What Israeli 'Roof Knocking' Before Bombing A Target Looks Like

THIS AMAZING VIDEO from the Gaza-based Watania news agency shows Israel’s controversial ‘knock on the roof’ air-strike warning in action.

The video demonstrates how a small missile strikes the house across the road from where the footage was captured. This is a warning that the house has been targeted for an air-strike.

About 15 minutes later the house is completely destroyed by two separate bombs from what the agency says was two F16 fighter planes. Most of this fifteen minute period is edited out of the video.

Rubble and debris are thrown into the air but when the dust clears it is evident that most of the house has been completely blown away.

ALL OF GAZA IS NOW ON DEATH ROW

Not unlike the condemned prisoners waiting on death row in the United States, Gazans now know the time of their scheduled executions …

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I want to point something out. The Israelis sit in their tanks, or the drone operations centers, or fly high above Gaza in their US-supplies warplanes, dropping the latest in US-supplied high tech lethal munitions, and imagine themselves the heroes they read about in the Torah. The Palestinians huddle in their giant open-air prison, without an army, a navy, or an air force, and fight back with home-made rockets made out of plumbing supplies.

Not since Thermopylae has the world seen such courage in the face of overwhelming odds. The Palestinians have balls the US and Israel can only dream of, and the world will remember their courage against the tyrants.

Israel Paying Students (30 pieces of silver?) to be Apologists for Israel

There are tons of rabid apologists lurking all about the social media platforms ready to do Israel’s bidding while the IDF commits one crime against humanity after another in Gaza. Go ahead and Tweet something honest about what is going on and you’ll see what I mean.

I wondered what motivated them, in the face of the undeniable, to continue their efforts to defend the indefensible. I should have known. I should have remembered. It’s money. It’s always been money.

College students are being paid to be online apologists for the barbaric inhuman policies of Israel and the IDF. The more lies they post about glorious Israel, the higher up the corporate-styled ladder they climb, looking to achieve the ultimate goal… a free ride in college… proving once again: it’s never too early to sell-out.

Now, please imagine, for one second, that this was your kid you were about to bury.

Iran warns it is ready to walk away from nuclear talks

Iran's chief negotiator in nuclear talks in Vienna warned Saturday that Tehran is ready to walk away if "excessive" Western demands cause a failure, a day before foreign ministers try to inject momentum. Eight days before a deadline for a deal, Abbas Araqchi said however that he hoped that the attendance from Sunday of foreign ministers including US Secretary of State John Kerry would help overcome "deep differences" that remain.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is, of course, what the US and Israel have wanted all along, and they have been playing this cute game called "Just one more thing." It goes like this. As soon as an agreement is about to be reached, the US says, "Just one more thing." Then a new agreement is put together and just as it is ready, the US again says, "Just one more thing." Then "Just one more thing." Then "Just one more thing." Then "Just one more thing."

Finally the other party, in this case Iran, realizes that the US is not bargaining in good faith and quits, allowing the US to claim the other side is being unreasonable and walked away from negotiations! Because the US and Israel do not want peace with Iran (any more than Israel wants peace with the Palestinians). They want war and to make it look like the other side is to blame for it.

Thousands flee Gaza as Israel ramps up offensive

Thousands of residents fled northern Gaza on Sunday at the urging of the Israeli military as its ground troops briefly crossed the border on a mission to destroy a launching site.

The tumult came as the death toll from Israel's six-day Operation Protective Edge offensive rose to more than 160, with more than 1,000 injured, the Palestinian Health Ministry said.

"Civilians are requested to evacuate their residences immediately for their own safety," the Israeli leaflets dropped by air warned. They listed specific areas that would "prove to be most dangerous."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The IDF would not be ordering Gaza residents to evacuate, were a ground invasion not imminent.

But the title to this article is completely disingenuous in the extreme; with Egypt having closed their borders to Gaza, Gazans have absolutely no where to go. They are stuck, like sitting ducks, waiting for the Israeli carnage to continue, and have no defenses against it whatsoever.

Israeli troops launch first ground attack on Gaza

Israeli marines clashed with Hamas gunmen Sunday in the first reported ground incursion in the latest Gaza offensive. It follows a heavy night of violence during which 18 members of the same family were killed in the deadliest single attack on the besieged enclave in days of shelling.

A Palestinian woman and a girl, aged 3, were killed in Israeli raids early on Sunday, Gaza's Health Ministry said. Hours earlier, the ministry said the house of Gaza's police chief was bombed by the air, resulting in many casualties.

The Israeli army said at least four soldiers were "lightly injured" on Sunday, as they attacked a site in northern Gaza the army said was being used to launch long-range rockets.

Giving details of the naval commando operation early on Sunday, Lieutenant Colonel Peter Lerner, an Israeli military spokesman, said four members of the force were wounded in exchanges of fire with Hamas fighters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I fully expect the IDF to begin a total, scorched-earth, ground invasion of Gaza.

When this is all over, the Gazans who have been displaced by the bombings, will have no homes to go back to.

List of the 176 Palestinians, Including Whole Families, Killed Since Tuesday

The following is a list of the 176 Palestinians killed by Israeli air bombardment since Tuesday, July 8th. This list is being updated regularly. Approximately 1120 have been injured, dozens in very serious conditions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let's review the timetable.

Last month, three Israeli teenagers were kidnapped and killed in an IDF-controlled region of the West Bank, not Gaza. ISIS has taken credit and even the Israeli media admits that the two suspects named by the Israeli government are not part of HAMAS, but of a group known for disobeying HAMAS and trying to cause trouble for them.

But Netanyahu declares HAMAS responsible and launches bombing raids into Gaza using the very latest high-tech weapons provided by the US Government and paid for by the US taxpayers. The Palestinians, who have been attacked without provocation, fight back with their home-made rockets, which so far have not killed anyone or done more damage than knock a few roof tiles loose.

But to Israel's supporters, we should all forget that Israel attacked Gaza without a valid reason, and view Palestine's attempts to defend themselves as the crime, so that Israel can go on pounding the Palestinians with their superior weapons. Those who refuse to go along with this farce are denounced as "Anti-Semites" and "Jew Haters"

Israel airstrike bombs major water line, sewage station and water wells in Gaza

Gaza, Occupied Palestine – Israeli airstrikes bombed a major water line and sewage plant west of Gaza City, last Wednesday afternoon, which provides water to tens of thousands of citizens and is regarded as the main water line for al-Shati refugee camp west of the city.

The director of the Water Department in the Municipality of Gaza, Saad Eddin Al-Atbash stated, “Israeli aircraft targeted a sewage plant west of the city, which serves the areas of al-Shati Camp, Tel al-Hawa neighborhood, Sheikh Ajlin, and the western areas of Gaza City, which pumps 25,000 cubic meters of waste water daily to the public treatment plant.” He continued, “While the city is working on improving the water supply systems for the citizens in Gaza, Israeli forces are working on the destruction of water wells in order to increase the suffering of the citizens during the summer.”

This waterline provides water to more than 70,000 people, and it takes several days to repair.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IT is obvious that the IDF has been ordered to do a complete "scorched earth" military drive against Gaza, and unfortunately the destruction of water and sewage lines are just the beginning here.

The "Six Million Jews" Theme From Before World War Two

So here is the story.

I chanced across an article documenting how the Zionists had been using the theme of "Six Million Jews" long before World War 2. This article was hosted on scribd and no sooner did I link to that article from whatreallyhappened.com than it was pulled from the scribd server.

The reason for the panic reaction is obvious. As doubts continue to surface regarding the claim of Six Million Jews intentionally exterminated by Germany in the 1940s, evidence that the Six Million "brand" has been used prior to that time undermines its credibility even further.

So where did the Six Million come from, if not in actual fact from the crimes of the Nazis? It actually originates in a prophecy from the Talmud, which states that after Six Million Jews are sacrificed, Israel will be restored to the survivors.

Israel Is Bombing Gaza Back to the Stone Age to Get Hamas ... But ISIS – NOT HAMAS – Claims Credit for Attacks Against Israel

Israel is currently bombing Gaza back to the stone age (MSM spin notwithstanding).

While Israel claims that Hamas was behind the murder of 3 Israeli boys which started this round of violence (and subsequent rocket attacks), the Times of Israel reported last week:

A new Palestinian jihadist group pledging allegiance to the Islamic State (formerly known as ISIL) [or "ISIS"] has claimed responsibility for the killing of three Israeli teenagers last month in the West Bank, as well as other recent deadly attacks against Israeli soldiers and civilians.

Hamas has denied responsibility for the attacks.

The New York Times also reported on Wednesday:

Gaza-Israel conflict: The terrible price Palestinian children are paying for Israel’s war with Hamas

He and his wife, Hanan, had craved a baby and Mariam came after years of IVF treatment. An only child, she was the apple of her grandparents’ eyes and they had been constantly cautioning her that she should not stray far from home in these dangerous times.

“Our little girl was playing in our garden when it happened. The Israelis bombed a house across the street: the blast came straight through our house – then I saw my daughter lying in blood,” said Mr Masri. “She was injured badly in the head, so we fear very much.”

Mariam is one among the extraordinarily large number of children who have been victims since Benjamin Netanyahu’s government launched Operation Protective Edge: 22 are among the 103 dead, and no less than 70 per cent of the 700 injured comprise boys and girls, or women, according to Palestinian medical authorities.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The IDF is blowing up residential structures, under the claim that they harbor "Hamas terrorists"; however, I would suggest that they are bombing residential structures to kill as many women and children as possible.

When you execute kids, you take the future away from a society; Hitler certainly understood that.

Executing women... is forced population control.

Can We Stop Pretending Israel is Being Attacked?

I’ve long been a critic of Israel when it comes to its treatment of the Palestinians, but have refrained from jumping in every time the conflict flares up in recent years. Why? Because it is so toxic and divisive that I’m not sure it does any good venting about it on Facebook, Twitter, or on these pages. If you are pro-Israel, there’s not a lot anyone can say to change your mind. If you can watch Israel decimate Palestinians and take their land on live television, year after year, decade after decade and still justify their behavior, then there is little point in engaging in debate. It’s takes an extraordinary leap of logic to justify Israel’s brutal occupation of Palestine, and the blind support the nation receives is born out of irrational tribal loyalty rather than a neutral observation of the facts.

About Those Rockets | #Gaza

Here is a familiar-sounding reply to this week's complaints about the carnage in Gaza: "Well, if people wouldn't fire ROCKETS at Israel, none of those strikes would have been carried out, and people would not have died. And hey, what would YOU do if the people who lived across the border were firing rockets at YOU?"

I call this "The Response." You hear it a lot it in the US from supporters of Israel. It has many variations, but the variations always hit the main points: "They started it; that's what happens when you start something; what the hell would you do in our situation?" The Response seems powerful. It tends to end discussions, which is, I think, why it's been popular for a long time.

For years, I bought it. Now I don't, and I wrote this article to tell you why. Once you look at The Response closely enough, you realize that there are at least three points at which it collapses under its own weight.

Thank You, President Obama. Love, Israel

Dear President Obama,

We must confess, when you became President, some of us were a little worried that America’s "special relationship" with Israel would come to an end.

We were concerned that the United States would no longer provide money, weapons, and most importantly, diplomatic cover to Israel.

After all, Jimmy Carter – a former President from your own political party – has been highly critical of Israel’s treatment of Palestinians. He even had the nerve to say that Hamas was democratically elected, and that our policy towards Palestine is worse than South African apartheid.

We were fearful that your passionate speech in Cairo in 2009 would make Muslims believe that an Obama presidency would be a neutral player in Israel’s fight against the terrorists from Palestine.

But, thankfully, through your actions as President, you have alleviated our anxieties.

Palestinians: Most Gaza dead are children, women, elderly

A five-year-old boy was killed yesterday morning in an Israeli airstrike on the northern Gaza Strip, as Palestinian sources reported the deaths of 17 people in the morning in assaults on a café and a home.

Reports from Gaza indicated widespread damage to houses, infrastructure and public buildings, with large numbers of civilian casualties. A Hamas activist ridiculed Israeli claims that Hamas infrastructure was being targeted, noting the high number of buildings containing families and civilians that had been hit.

By the afternoon, the Palestinian Health Ministry put the death toll in Gaza at 81 people — among them 22 children, 15 women and 12 elderly people — since Operation Protective Edge began on Tuesday. Another 537 people have been injured.

Like Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the Palestinians in Gaza are not talking about calming the situation. Spokesmen for different armed organizations in the Strip are vowing to continue their fight “to the end.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Precisely what does that phrase fight 'to the end' mean, precisely, in Netanyahu's mind?!?

The killing of every Gazan woman, child, and medically fragile elderly people the IDF snipers can hit?!?

Unfortunately, the short answer here appears to be yes.

There is some controversy over Einstein’s political views especially on the issue of Palestine and the creation of a Jewish State.

The recently published book, Einstein on Israel and Zionism: His Provocative Ideas About the Middle East by Fred Jerome (New York: St. Martin’s Press, 2009) has brought Einstein’s political views on the Middle East back into the spotlight.

US complicity in Israel's attack on Gaza

It was very kind of Brenda from the US Consulate in Jerusalem to finally return my call at 7pm, long after work hours.

I had been trying since early morning to get an appointment for a group of concerned US citizens living in Palestine to meet with a policy officer. We came together through social media and word of mouth because we are desperate to speak out about the unjustifiable slaughter of Palestinians in Gaza that is now under way.

We want to express our opposition to United States' complicity in the Israeli attacks that have taken over 100 Palestinian lives, with hundreds more injured. We want to demand a change of policy before the threatened Israeli ground invasion becomes a reality. But it turned out that it was difficult to reach anyone in the consulate, much less to get an appointment.

The “Six Million” Jewish “holocaust” Myth

1900-
American Zionist leader, Rabbi Stephen S. Wise, let slip the Zionist agenda behind the Holocaust Hoax: to promote public sympathy for Zionism (Jewish takeover of Palestine).

“There are 6,000,000 living, bleeding, suffering arguments in favor of Zionism.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Another version of the Six Million theme from BEFORE WW2 that surfaces in the search for the deleted scribd article.

The following column appeared in the June 6, 1900 New York Times. Not the highlighted portion.

HOW 8 U.S. PRESIDENTS REALLY FELT ABOUT ZIONISTS

"The Jews, I find, are very, very selfish. They care not how many Estonians, Latvians, Finns, Poles, Yugoslavs or Greeks get murdered or mistreated as Displaced Persons as long as the Jews get special treatment. Yet when they have power, physical, financial or political neither Hitler nor Stalin has anything on them for cruelty or mistreatment to the under dog."

How Netanyahu provoked this war with Gaza

So how did we get from there to here, here being Operation Protective Edge, which officially began Tuesday with 20 Gazans dead, both militants and civilians, scores of others badly wounded and much destruction, alongside about 150 rockets flying all over Israel (but no serious injuries or property damage by Wednesday afternoon)?

We got here because Benjamin Netanyahu brought us here. He’s being credited in Israel for showing great restraint in the days leading up to the big op, answering Gaza’s rockets with nothing more than warning shots and offering “quiet for quiet.” But in fact it was his antagonism toward all Palestinians – toward Mahmoud Abbas’ Palestinian Authority no less than toward Hamas – that started and steadily provoked the chain reaction that led to the current misery.

List of the 124 Palestinians, Including Whole Families, Killed Since Tuesday

The following is a list of the 124 Palestinians killed by Israeli air bombardment since Tuesday, July 8th. These are the names that have been confirmed by medical sources in Gaza. An estimated 900 Palestinians have also been wounded, with some losing limbs and others disabled for life. The majority of the wounded are children, according to the Ministry of Health. All of the casualties listed below are victims of Israeli bombs dropped on Gaza since Tuesday July 8th.

Egyptians staged nationwide protests on Friday in solidarity with Gaza against the current Israeli military offensive that claimed the lives of over 100 Palestinians.

In the western Cairo neighborhood of October 6, protesters condemned the Israeli assault and the "weak" stance of the Egyptian government. They chanted "Gaza is the symbol of dignity."

Protesters also chanted against the recent price hikes in fuel and basic commodities.

Protest at Israeli Embassy, Re: Gaza Bombings

Led by CODEPINK, American-Arab organizations, the Washington Peace Center and the ANSWER Coalition, an estimated 300 spirited protesters gathered outside the Israeli Embassy in Washington, D.C. on Friday afternoon July 11th. They brought with them pots, pans, drums and other assorted noise makers. As of today, the Israeli bombings “have killed at least 100 Palestinians” and injured more than 670 in Gaza. See: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/07/11/mideast-conflict-gaza-offensi... Supposedly, half of the dead are “women and children.”

Gaza militants, on the other hand, have reportedly fired “over 400 rockets” into residential areas in Israel. No casualties have been reported. At press time, there was no sign of a truce between the parties. The Israelis insist they are only “defending” themselves.

UN Human Rights Chief Doubts Legality Of Israeli Air Campaign

Israel's air campaign in Gaza may violate international laws prohibiting the targeting of civilians, the UN's top human rights official has said as the death toll of Palestinians rose to more than 100.

As international pressure continued to build on Israel to end its four-day conflict with Hamas and Palestinian militant groups in the enclave, Navi Pillay, the UN high commissioner for human rights, said the Israeli military must abide by international law.

"So far the battle is progressing as planned, but we can expect further stages in future. Up to now, we have hit Hamas and the terror organisations hard and as the battle continues we will increase strikes at them," he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Since when has Israel allow international law to in any way interfere with what they do to the Palestinians?

Were I a betting woman, I would almost be willing to bet real money on a ground invasion of Gaza; the only question is the timing, which will be when the Israeli government feels that international attention is distracted with other geopolitical issues so as to be paying the minimal amount of attention to that invasion.

ABC airs Gaza bombing devastation images - says it's in Israel

In the latest case of Western mainstream media confusing the geographical location of warzones, an ABC News anchor described footage of Gaza homes shortly after their destruction by the IDF as belonging to Israel.

On July 8, veteran ABC news anchor Diane Sawyer, 68, opened up a news segment, entitled Under Attack, with the following introduction: “We take you overseas now to the rockets raining down on Israel today, as Israel tried to shoot them out of the sky, all part of the tinderbox, Israelis and Palestinians [sic].”

In two images that accompanied Sawyer’s narration, she says, “Here are two Israelis trying to salvage what they can, while a woman is standing speechless among the ruins.”

There was just one problem: The images of wide-scale physical destruction and human suffering shown in the images were not from Israel, but rather from the Gaza Strip, where the locals have been enduring days of aerial bombings.

Gaza: 8 things you should know about Israel’s violent assault that mainstream media does not want you to know

Like us, you are probably saddened and upset by the recent surge in violence between Israel and Hamas. The violence directed at civilians on both sides is wrong, and should be condemned. However, as many of you have probably noticed, Israel’s pro-occupation media machine is hard at work promoting a lopsided view of the conflict in mainstream media. Therefore, we’ve compiled a few points to provide better context and more balanced info as you discuss the situation with your friends, family and any media contacts.

I Don't Think The Idea Of Americans & Canadians Paying The Tax Is To Kill Palestinains

Gaza towns, not fully repaired from Israel’s 2008-09 invasion, are being smashed again, and Israel is ordering some 100,000 civilians out of their homes in anticipation of a ground invasion that will further level their towns.

Israel, by contrast, has seen virtually no casualties from the Gaza rocket fire that is supposedly a justification for the onslaught. In three days of hyped “Hamas attacks,” Israel has only claimed a single casualty, a soldier “lightly wounded” by shrapnel from a rocket.

That’s unsurprising, because while rockets from Gaza are being fired all over Israel, they are extremely primitive weapons with no guidance, rarely hitting anything, and even when they do rarely doing more than superficial damage to the roof of some random building.

Israel's Kill 2 Birds With One Stone: Kill The People Of Gaza & Get ALL Their Offshore Gas Fields

Five years ago, Israel invaded Gaza under “Operation Cast Lead”.
The following article was first published by Global Research in January 2009 at the height of the Israeli bombing and invasion under Operation Cast Lead.

In the wake of the invasion, Palestinian gas fields were de facto confiscated by Israel in derogation of international law
A year following “Operation Cast Lead”, Tel Aviv announced the discovery of the Leviathan natural gas field in the Eastern Mediterranean “off the coast of Israel.”

At the time the gas field was: “ … the most prominent field ever found in the sub-explored area of the Levantine Basin, which covers about 83,000 square kilometres of the eastern Mediterranean region.” (i)

Netanyahu: World pressure won't stop offensive

Benjamin Netanyahu told a news conference Friday that Israel will continue its offensive until rocket fire out of Gaza is halted.

"No international pressure will prevent us from acting with all power," he said.

Lebanese Forces condemns Israeli offensive on Gaza

The Lebanese Forces Thursday condemned Israeli aggression toward Gaza, warning the international community that a prolonged crisis would plunge the entire region into chaos.

“The Lebanese Forces deplores the escalating Israeli aggression toward Gaza, which does not exclude civilians such as children, women and the elderly,” the LF said. “Such aggression is unjustifiable by all political, security and humanitarian standards,” it added. “Both the Arab and the international community are asked to take immediate action to stop what is happening as soon as possible, for the sake of the innocent lives and to prevent a deterioration that might affect the entire region, leading to chaos and producing results no one could ever imagine.”

NBC BEX - Hamas Firing China-Designed, Syria-Made M-302 Rockets: Israel

Smuggled Syrian-made rockets based on a Chinese design have boosted Hamas' 10,000-strong arsenal which is dominated by crude homemade devices, officials and experts say.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If this were true (and not for one second am I buying this USDA Choice bovine excrement) then it means that Israel's starvation blockade of Gaza is totally ineffective. Israel has justified blocking food, medicine, schools supplies, even students' musical instruments into Gaza, all under the excuse that they are preventing HAMAS from obtaining military weapons.

Well, this sudden Israeli claim that HAMAS has thousands of rockets smuggled in proves the blockade simply does not work, and the only reason Israel continues the blockade is to increase the suffering of the Palestinians!

Israel Doesn't Flinch at Brutalizing Americans Who Stand in the Way of Their War on Palestinians: 7 Gruesome Examples

Tariq Abu Khdeir is not the first American to be brutally targeted by Israeli forces. American citizenship matters little to the Israeli army or police if one is Palestinian or Muslim or protesting the Israeli occupation’s policies. The violence meted out to Americans is just a small sliver of what Palestinians go through--being beaten, thrown in jail, or killed. The Israeli occupation’s violence could escalate in the coming days as protests continue.

Here are six other cases of Israeli forces harming Americans.

State Dep’t says Israel has a right to defend itself, but can’t say the same of Palestinians

MS. PSAKI: I would say, Said, that I don’t think any country would be expected to allow rockets to come in and threaten the lives and health and well-being of the citizens in their country, and Israel has the right to defend themselves.

QUESTION: Okay. Do you believe that the Palestinians in Gaza have the right to defend themselves?

MS. PSAKI: I think – I’m not sure what you’re getting at, Said.

QUESTION: I am asking you: Do they have the right to defend themselves against Israeli aggression?

MS. PSAKI: What are you specifically referring to? Is there a specific event or a specific occurrence?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Psaki gives Netanyahu a blow-job on national TV!

To which I would add that the kidnapping of the three teenagers did not happen in Gaza and even the Israeli media is reporting a different group, the Islamic State in Bayt al-Maqdis, took credit for the murders. And the head of the Mossad "predicted" three Israeli teenagers would be kidnapped a week before it happened!

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

So who is Israel "defending" itself from, bitch!

Jihadist group takes credit for teens’ killings

A new Palestinian jihadist group pledging allegiance to the Islamic State (formerly known as ISIL) has claimed responsibility for the killing of three Israeli teenagers last month in the West Bank, as well as other recent deadly attacks against Israeli soldiers and civilians.

In a statement posted on jihadi websites Tuesday, the Supporters of the Islamic State in Bayt al-Maqdis said it was behind the capture and killing of “the three soldiers” in Hebron (actually, it was in the nearby Etzion bloc), sniper attacks in Hebron and Tarqumia, and missile launches from Gaza into Israel a month and a half ago.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Even the Israeli media is saying HAMAS had nothing to do with the deaths of the three teens, yet Netanyahu uncorks collective punishment, which is a war crime, against the Gazans who dared vote HAMAS as their government.

Tony Blair is not a Sabbath Goy, he actually works for Israel 24/7. In this shameless performance on Ynet (11/7/2014), Israel’s most popular media outlet, Blair misses an opportunity to communicate with Israelis and explain to them for the first time the context in which the conflict is taking place. Blair obviously prefers not to upset the Israelis. Bearing in mind the scale of the crimes Blair committed in Iraq on behalf of Israel and the Jewish Lobby, it is understandable. Israel is probably the only country that is willing to give him a shelter.

Holocaust Or Holohoax? 21 Amazing Facts

In British [and American] Schools, and constantly on British [and American] television, we are bombarded with the alleged murder of 6 million jews by the Germans during World War Two. This is commonly referred to as “The Holocaust”. This alleged historical event is also thrown at anyone objecting to mass immigration in to White Nations as proof of the absolute evil of White Nationalism. In most European Countries even disputing any detail of this alleged historical event is a very serious criminal offence, which can result in up to 20 years imprisonment. In France this can be served in solitary confinement if the authorities believe there is any chance of re-offending.

Even though this blog in no way denies “The Holocaust”, or disputes any of the alleged details of any of the different versions, we did list 21 amazing facts about it here:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In WW2, the nations of the world had sacrificed much blood and treasure on the principle that one nation did not have the right to simply march into another nation and take it over for their own use. Yet, that is exactly what the founders of Israel planned to do to Palestine! So they needed a piece of propaganda powerful enough to convince the world that what Germany had not been allowed to do to Poland and France, Israel had to be allowed to do to Palestine.

So the German slave labor camps were described as death camps. Delousing with insecticide was described as gassing. And the thousands of deaths of all races (including Germans) from the typhus epidemics were described as a deliberate campaign of genocide targeting only the Talmudic six million Jews, a number that had also been used for propaganda purposes in World War 1!

The world fell for the lie, and the same nations which had united to stop Germany from stealing Europe stood back and did nothing while Israel stole Palestine.

Since then, Israel has maintained this myth of six million Jews subjected to extermination by the Germans as it is central to keeping the world from speaking out against Israel's abuses of the Palestinians. Coupled with that is the constant series of propaganda stunts involving false-flag attacks blamed on Palestinians, to keep the world from sympathizing with their suffering' to make it look as if somehow they deserve what is being done to them.

Netanyahu's War: What Is It Good For?

The government of Benjamin Netanyahu has launched a new war on Palestinians in Gaza, a war whose purported justifications make George W. Bush's excuses for his illegal invasion of Iraq smell nice by comparison. So far, the United States, Netanyahu's chief enabler, has been unwilling to stop the carnage, as it could easily do, because Washington hasn't yet heard enough complaint from Americans not to use their tax dollars to kill children in Gaza.

Suppose that you believe that there are just wars and there are unjust wars, as many people do. Is Netanyahu's war on Hamas in Gaza a just war? A just war must have a just end, and the just end must be sufficiently good to more than compensate for all injustices caused by the war. The just end must not be reachable by peaceful means, and attempts to use peaceful means to achieve the just end must have been exhausted.

Israel vs. Hamas: The conflict by the numbers

In light of The Economist’s index during the last Israeli offensive in Gaza in November 2012, here are some numbers from July 8-July 10 2014.

Number of Palestinians in Gaza killed by the Israeli military: At least 82, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health via Al Akhbar news service.

Number of Israelis killed by Hamas rockets from Gaza: 0, according to news reports.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One can see from numbers why Bibi does not want Gaza and West Bank to be "united".

Israel's Population 6.1 million Jews

Palestinians populations : 1.7 millions in Gaza, 2 millions in Israel, 2.7 millions in occupied West Bank.

Total equals 6.4 million Palestinians. and that's more than Israeli Jews living in Israel.

So, Israel needs to kill at least 300,000 Palestinians to avoid being a ruling apartheid minority.

The newspaper reports that Knock on Roof is the IDF answer to repeated assassinations of children and innocents in Israeli bombings of private houses in the Gaza Strip by its forces. Now, the IDF bombs the house twice. First with a small, ineffective bomb that sends a message to evacuate the building and shortly afterwards it delivers a large one, which destroys the structure.

Israel, U.S. try to ward off UN condemnations of Gaza air strikes

Jerusalem and Washington are trying to prevent the UN Security Council from condemning Israel’s air offensive in the Gaza Strip, in which dozens of Palestinian civilians have been killed, Israeli diplomats said Thursday. The Security Council is due to meet at 10 A.M. New York time to discuss the fighting between Israel and Hamas.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is sound and fury, signifying nothing.

There will be some move in the Security Council to condemn the killing of civilians, which will bring about the immediate VETO by the US; it is as simple as that; and the inescapable message which will be sent will be that the killing of civilians is justified, as long as the US government supports the government doing the killing of civilians (Ukraine is another brilliant example of this posture).

ANTI ADL HATE CAMPAIGN GOING VIRAL ON TWITTER

The ADL has been a consistent embarrassment to the Jewish community and its campaign to justify the bombing of Gaza is just the latest act in a storied history of shameful behavior. While Israel does have a legitimate right and responsibility to protect its citizens from attack, and while I strenuously oppose all attacks against civilians, to pretend that this current escalation is merely a defensive measure by Israel and not part of a greater policy to undermine the PA unity deal is to deny the obvious.

VIDEO ~~ HACKING AWAY AND DESTROYING THE OCCUPATION

Our thoughts are with the people of Gaza at this time, who are currently under military assault. Though this film is lighthearted, our hearts are heavy as we watch in horror the violence perpetrated by the Israeli government and the untold suffering of the Palestinian people.

In 2005, Palestinian civil society issued a call to the world to apply boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel until it meets its obligations under international law. Now, in the midst of Israel’s ongoing terror campaign, BDS remains the best way the international movement can show Palestine our solidarity.

Israel escalates aerial offensive on Gaza

Israel dramatically escalated its aerial assault in Gaza Thursday hitting hundreds of Hamas targets, and the Palestinians said a family of eight was killed in a strike that destroyed their home. Israel's missile defense system once again intercepted rockets fired by militants at the country's heartland.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

AOL is trying to sell Israeli media propaganda that Israel hit hundreds of Hamas targets, but the photos clearly show apartments and houses in civilian neighborhoods. Israel bombed a cafe where the customers were watching the World Cup. There are no no photos of any damage on the Israeli side and no casualties--not even wounded people. This is why ABC's Diane Sawyer used photos of the destruction in Gaza and tried to claim it was Israel. As for the "successful" intercepts by Iron Dome, the actual rate is less than 50%, with the Palestinians firing 15 rockets into Israel (at a cost of less than $1000 each) and Israel intercepting just 7. Israel won't say how many Iron Dome rockets $50,000 each, paid for by the US taxpayer) they had to fire to hit those 7 inbounds, so the success rate may actually be worse.

ABC News tells viewers that scenes of destruction in Gaza are in Israel

More than fifty Palestinians have been killed and another 450 wounded since Monday in Israel’s ongoing assault on the besieged Gaza Strip, dubbed “Operation Protective Edge” by the Israeli army.

As usual, mainstream media outlets are straining to paint Israel as the victim, defending its people against irrational Palestinian rocket fire.

There is no equating the killing and maiming of dozens of innocent Palestinians with scared Israelis seeking shelter from crude rockets that rarely cause damage. But that hasn’t stopped media outlets from trying, and in some cases, outright lying, to distort the violence.

In one stark example, ABC News’ Diane Sawyer misidentifies scenes of the aftermath of Israeli missile strikes in Gaza as destruction caused by Palestinian rocket fire.

Webmaster's Commentary:

These are the images from Gaza that are too graphic for many US news outlets to publish

Israeli air strikes killed 22 Palestinians in Gaza on Wednesday, including fifteen women and children. That leaves the two-day death toll at 43. More than 370 people have so far been wounded.

Those numbers don't convey the horror of what's happening right now in Gaza. Neither do most of the photographs you'll find in news media. Streets and buildings have been blasted to rubble, yes. People are broken and mourning. Those things must be documented. But too often, we hide from the most graphic scenes of violence and death.

At least 76 Palestinians killed by Israeli rockets. 25 killed last night. Including 5 children. News of 8 more killed today. More than 500 injured. The Israeli military said it hit 322 targets last night. Bringing the total number to 750. Zero Israeli casualties.

On Thursday, 15 rockets struck Israel. 7 were intercepted. Iron Dome is scoring less than 50% success rate. The home-made rockets fired by the Palestinians cost less than $1000. A single Iron Dome missile costs between $50,000 and $100,000 (not counting the launching and control systems). From a resource point of view, Israel is losing this battle, but they don't care because they are not paying for these $100,000 each missiles; YOU are!

The Palestinian father who was blown clean out of his home: Tragedy of man who came round to learn his wife and son had died in direct hit on his house

A Palestinian father was blasted yards from his house in the Gaza Strip after a direct missile strike that killed his wife and son.

Shocking photos of Mustafa Malaka sprawled in the rubble emerged this evening as Israeli bombing of the Hamas-controlled region instesified.

Today the Israeli army stepped up its offensive, killing 17 Palestinians including 11 women and children in strikes, hiking the overall death toll to 47 in two days, hospital officials said. More than 300 people have been wounded.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This article contains a lot of photographs of the destruction to Gaza done by Israel. Take a look at them, then compare with this photo of the "damage" caused by a rocket from Gaza to Israel!

Hamas: We attempted to hit the nuclear reactor in Dimona

Three rockets were launched at Dimona in southern Israel on Wednesday afternoon. The Iron Dome intercepted one rocket before it could land, while two other rockets landed in open areas.

Dimona is the location of Israel's nuclear reactor. There was no indication that rockets damaged any part of the reactor.
Related:

Hamas claimed responsibility for the rockets, stating that it had been attempting to hit the nuclear reactor.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like confirmation that HAMAS is claiming credit for these rockets, because from a public relations point of view, this is a very bad thing to do. Had the reactor been hit, EVERYONE (including the Palestinians) would suffer, and world opinion would turn against HAMAS.

Obviously Israel benefits from this rocket attack politically, especially since no harm came to the bomb factory at Dimona.

Israeli intelligence report: Palestinians possess thousands of rockets

Hamas and the other Palestinian terrorist organizations controlling the Gaza Strip are continuing their rocket attacks and they are suspected of possessing thousands of rockets, whose maximum range enables them to attack central Israel including the city of Tel Aviv, according to an intelligence report by the Amit Meir Information Center released on Tuesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Not that I think that is true, but if it were, it tells us that the Israeli starvation blockage of Gaza, justified to keep HAMAS from obtaining the materials needed to build rockets, is and has been a total failure!

The Israeli culture of vengeance on full display

These horrifying events should serve as a lesson in the obscene futility of vengeance. As a relative of one of the murdered children observed: “There is no difference between blood and blood.”

Sadly, that was not the message implicit in much of last week’s coverage. On social media, a juxtaposition of pictures from the same day’s New York Times showed how easy it is to forget not only that our blood is the same but that grief is too.

A headline about Israelis’ “heartbreak” was illustrated movingly by the families of the three Israeli teenagers huddled together, overwhelmed by their loss. A report on the killing of 16-year-old Abu Khdeir, on the other hand, was accompanied by an image of masked youths throwing stones.

Settlers Attempt to Kidnap Children Near Hebron, Bethlehem

According to WAFA Palestinian News & Info Agency, Coordinator of the Anti-wall and Settlement Popular Committee, Ratib Jabour, said that armed settlers chased Hani Al-Ka‘abna, 14, in a car along a rugged road in Al-Ka‘abna, to the east of Yatta, in an attempt to kidnap him.

The boy, fortunately, managed to escape.

Near Bethlehem, a number of settlers driving an Israeli vehicle into Beit Sahour attempted to kidnap a Palestinian child.

The attempted abduction took place near the YMCA Center, in Beit Sahour.

PSYCHOLOGICAL WARFARE 101

Last night I posted a short piece about sirens sounding in Jerusalem …. I mentioned that Just moments ago sirens sounded throughout the Jerusalem area. In its greatest display of psychological warfare, Israel wants us all to be very afraid ….Most of us are at what Israel’s next move will be.

Today it became obvious that the government is failing in its attempt to instill the fear it had hoped to. Schools were open, transportation ran as scheduled, all shops were open for business.

In my own neighbourhood which is usually very peaceful it was ‘business as usual’ throughout the community shopping centre. All of the local eateries were full of customers enjoying a non scorching day. Palestinians were stocking up at the Supermarket in preparation for their ‘Iftar’, the meal eaten at the end of a fast. Everything looked normal and not a word was heard about the sirens of the night before.

Another glorious failure for zion.

Israel Rules Out Ceasefire, Mobilizes 40,000 for Gaza Invasion

Israeli Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovich today ruled out any ceasefire negotiations with Hamas, as the Israeli military continues to escalate airstrikes against the tiny Gaza Strip, and is building up for a ground invasion.

The cabinet has given the military authorization to mobilize up to 40,000 reservists as part of preparations for a ground invasion of Gaza, though so far there is no confirmation that such an invasion yet. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu did, however, say that whatever sort of war Israel carries out “may take time.”

Army sources also say that the planning right now is for a “long operation” against Gaza, and with so many hawks in the government pushing for a full conquest of the strip it is hard to imagine Israel stopping short of such a war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My bet would be that there will be a ground invasion of Gaza, and sooner rather than later.

The IDF will do as much human damage as possible; innocent women and children will be cut down in the streets in a hail of bullets; and the deaths of these innocents will simply be characterized as "collateral damage" by the Israeli government.

Kidnapped Israelis shot 10 times with silenced gun

Three Israeli teenagers who were abducted by Palestinians in the occupied West Bank last month were shot at least 10 times with a silenced gun in what appeared to be premeditated killings, a U.S. official involved in the investigation said.

The disclosure clashed with speculation by some Israeli and Palestinian commentators that the captors intended to take hostages for a prisoner exchange but panicked and shot them.

US condemns rocket fire from Gaza into Israel

The United States Tuesday condemned rocket fire by Hamas militants into Israel, and said it was concerned for civilians on both sides, after Israeli air strikes in Gaza killed 15 people.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest also urged Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to keep a diplomatic channel open with Palestinians to resolve the crisis sparked by the murders of three Israeli teenagers and a Palestinian youth.

“We strongly condemn the continuing rocket fire into Israel and the deliberate targeting of civilians by terrorist organizations in Gaza,” Earnest said.

The US government is totally impotent to stop this.

The "peace process" so touted by John Kerry has literally gone up in flames as a complete, thorough, epic fail.

Florida lawyers fired for calling Palestinians 'swine,' 'cockroaches'

Two South Florida public defenders were fired Tuesday after making inflammatory remarks on social media about Palestinians allegedly celebrating the abduction and murder of three Israeli teenagers in June.

In one Facebook post attorney Gary Sheres wrote: “they are the filthy swine they don’t eat,” referring to the Muslim custom of not eating pork.

“That’s why the Palestinian people are considered the cockroaches of the world,” lawyer Bruce Raticoff wrote. “Burn them to the ground.”

The public defender’s office first became aware of the comments following an inquiry from the South Florida Sun Sentinel newspaper on July 2 and was soon bombarded with criticism from equal rights groups and individuals.

In an unusually harsh major foreign policy address, Philip Gordon, a special assistant to US President Barack Obama and the White House coordinator for the Middle East, appealed to Israeli and Palestinian leaders to make the compromises needed to reach a permanent peace agreement. Jerusalem “should not take for granted the opportunity to negotiate” such a treaty with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, who has proven to be a reliable partner, Gordon said.

"Holocaust Survivor" warns concerned schoolkids: Iran must be stopped

An alleged "holocaust survivor" named Norbert Bikales who goes around New Jersey speaking to schoolkids has warned them that Iran must not acquire nuclear power.

The Central Jersey Register-News reports: BORDENTOWN: Middle school hosts Holocaust survivor:

"When asked if there is anything going on in the world today that looks like a holocaust could happen again, Mr. Bikales said, “We need to take a serious look at the nuclear power that Iran may have. The world powers need to stop Iran from gaining nuclear power and using it."

Christian Evangelicals Turning Backs on Israel

For decades, conservative evangelical Christians have been among the most fervent backers of the terroristic, rogue nuclear, apartheid Zionist occupation government in the Holy Land, known as Israel. They typically also have failed, knowingly or not, to acknowledge even basic human rights for the oppressed native Palestinians—Muslim and Christian—who face racial extinction at the hands of the region’s Jewish overlords. But that seemingly impregnable mountain of support has started to erode. A growing minority of ministers and younger believers have begun to challenge the established doctrine and practice, asserting that Zionism is contrary to God’s teaching in the Bible, and that continued persecution of Palestinians is a gross violation of fundamental morality.

Israeli Lawmaker Calls for Genocide of Palestinians…Gets 5,000 Facebook Likes

Just a day before Palestinian teenager Muhammad Abu Khudair was kidnapped and burned alive (allegedly by six Israeli Jewish youths), Israeli lawmaker Ayelet Shaked took to Facebook to call for genocide of the Palestinians people.

It was a bloodthirsty statement of intent, declaring “the entire Palestinian people is the enemy” and calling for their total destruction, “including its elderly and its women, its cities and its villages, its property and its infrastructure.” She calls for the slaughter of Palestinian mothers who give birth to “little snakes.”

If Shaked’s post does not meet the legal definition of a call for genocide then nothing does. It would have fit perfectly in the pages of Nazi propaganda rag Der Sturmer.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I nearly became physically ill, upon reading this.

So this is what Israel has devolved into in the 21st century; a genocidal, wretchedly apartheid self-proclaimed theocracy with nuclear weapons.

But Ayelet Shaked does not need to worry; with the coming ground assault on Gaza, I am sure the IDF will be murdering as many women and children as they think they can get away with killing.

I am surprised that her publicity photos to not show her wearing the "one shot; two kills" tee shirt the IDF was very proudly wearing some time back, supporting the killing of pregnant Palestinian women.

We need to dialogue with the Arabs, not call for murder. We commit Chilul Hashem when we do otherwise.

I apologise for all the violence committed by my side and extend the hand of peace to those on the other side. Jews and Arabs can live in peace, it is not a law of nature that we should fight.

A Call from Gaza: Support our right to life!

Israel has launched a heinous attack against both Gaza and the West Bank. It has so far conducted more than 100 airstrikes against civilian targets in Gaza. Nine Palestinian civilians, including three women and two children, were wounded by shrapnel, and three civilians, including two children, were injured by the flying glass. Moreover, three civilians sustained bruises. Besides, a chicken barn, greenhouses, a country house, two barracks for fodders and sheep were destroyed, and 3000 chicks died. Israeli naval forces continue to target Palestinian fishermen in the Gaza waters. Therefore, Israel further aggravates the situation for Palestinians in Gaza, which has been under a brutal military siege for more than seven years and still going on.

Contradicting Israeli officials, family of Tarek Abu Khdeir says he was attacked while in uncle’s Jerusalem backyard

The family of Tarek Abu Khdeir, the 15-year-old Palestinian-American brutally beaten by Israeli forces, says that he was standing in his uncle’s backyard when he was ambushed in the Shuafat neighborhood of Jerusalem–and did not attack the police, as Israeli officials have claimed. The family, who have been in contact with Tarek’s parents, who are in Jerusalem, is also demanding that Israel pay the costs of medical treatment for the head wounds Tariq suffered.

“All of the accusations that he’s a violent kid–he’s not violent,” said Hamdi Abu Khdeir, a Florida resident and an uncle of Tarek, during a press conference today in Florida organized by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). In response to a reporter’s question about whether Tarek was participating in the protests in Shuafat that erupted after Mohammed Abu Khdeir was murdered, the uncle said: “He wasn’t inside [the protests], or doing anything.”

Israel shows no morality, no mercy, and no compassion for Palestinians. Israel’s strength is not a mystery. Their power is dependent on their belief that they are God’s Chosen, on sophisticated weaponry, US tax dollars, and bipartisan Congressional support of Zionism that renders any “peace process” a charade.

Israeli forces brutally beat Palestinian-American teenager

New video footage has emerged showing masked Israeli forces brutally beating an Palestinian-American teenager in East al-Quds (Jerusalem).

The brutal attack which was first shown on a Palestinian TV channel is said to have happened on Thursday.

The boy’s family is a resident of Florida in the United States. The family of the 15-year old Palestinian-American boy has identified him as Tariq Abu Khdeir.

Relatives say the boy was visiting his uncle’s house in an area away from clashes between Israeli forces and Palestinians when he and five other youths were attacked in the yard by two masked Israeli police officers.

His family says the teenager has been denied medical treatment since he was arrested and taken into custody.

Some sources say Tariq is the cousin of the 16-year-old teenager Mohammed Abu Khdeir who was recently bundled into a car and later burnt to death by Israeli settlers.

Jewish extremists held over brutal murder of Palestinian teen

Israeli police have arrested a group of Jewish extremists in connection with the kidnap and murder of a Palestinian teenager in east Jerusalem, an Israeli official told Agence France-Presse on Sunday, July 6.

“Apparently the people arrested in relation to the case belong to an extremist Jewish group,” the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity, shortly after the website of the Haaretz newspaper reported 6 arrests in connection with the case.

The kidnap and murder on Wednesday, July 3, sparked 4 straight days of riots which began in annexed Arab east Jerusalem but on Saturday spread to more than half a dozen Arab towns in Israel.

Details of the case have been subjected to a strict gag order.

Earlier, police acknowledged for the first time there were “indications that the background to the killing was nationalistic.”

The leaks were credible enough to be quoted by the New York Times, with Israel Police personnel making declarations that half-confirmed and did not deny the horror.

The boy had inhaled his burning body. Smoke and soot had filled his lungs, indicating that he was alive while torched.

Were the Three Settler Kidnappings an Israeli “False Flag” Operation?

Evidence that came to light after Israel removed its gag order on information regarding the June 12 kidnapping and murder of three Jewish Israeli students suggests that it could have been an Israeli government operation that was intentionally used to punish Hamas and break up the new Palestinian unity government.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had immediately accused Hamas of the kidnapping — without presenting any evidence — and proceeded to “conduct a search” throughout the entirety of the West Bank until the bodies were reportedly found on June 30th.

Architect of Apartheid in Israel: “If we don’t kill, we will cease to exist”

Zionists hate being labelled ZioNazis but one only has to read some of Arnon Soffer’s quotes to realise that the label is not inappropriate.

It would be easy to dismiss Soffer’s quotes if he were just some Jewish street thug but he’s not.

Nothing new, but needs to be said again, and again, and again | Norman G. Finkelstein

Israel does not want peace. There is nothing I have ever written that I would be happier to be proved wrong about. But the evidence is piling up. In fact, it can be said that Israel has never wanted peace – a just peace, that is, one based on a just compromise for both sides. It’s true that the routine greeting in Hebrew is Shalom (peace) – shalom when one leaves and shalom when one arrives. And, at the drop of a hat, almost every Israeli will say he wants peace, of course he does. But he’s not referring to the kind of peace that will bring about the justice without which there is no peace and there will be no peace. Israelis want peace, not justice, certainly not anything based on universal values. Thus, “Peace, peace, when there is no peace.” Not only is there no peace: In recent years, Israel has moved away from even the aspiration to make peace.

Were the Three Settler Kidnappings an Israeli “False Flag” Operation?

he Israeli government had informed members of the press around June 15th that it was aware that the students had been killed (1) but placed a gag order on that information: the government must thus have known where the bodies were. The brutal “search” was merely cover for punishment of members of Hamas, the democratically-elected party of Palestinians throughout the occupied territories. The Israeli media played along with the pretext for the abuse.

3 Revenge Outposts Created Overnight

July 4, 2014, was the funeral date of Muhamad Abu-Hadir, a Palestinian boy from East Jerusalem who had been killed two days before in revenge for three Jewish settlers killed apparently by the Shin Beth secret police.*

Being buried on the day that Israel's main supporter celebrates its independence is an awful augury, an omen of violence. Israel is seldom subtle, never sophisticated. The symbol of hatred was overdone by constructing three outposts$ overnight.

Killing a person twice is difficult. Trying to overkill a topic often achieves the opposite effect. Palestine is on fire.

Israeli police, Palestinians clash in Jerusalem as Arab teen’s funeral held

Israeli police and Palestinian protesters are clashing in Jerusalem where thousands of mourners gathered for the funeral of an Arab teenager who, Palestinians believe, was killed by Israeli extremists in a revenge attack.

Police used teargas and stun grenades against hundreds of Palestinians outraged over the murder, who pelted rocks at law enforcement officers. So far, no casualties or arrests have been reported.

On Friday, Israeli officials handed over the body of the murdered boy to his family after Muslim prayers. Partially wrapped in a traditional headscarf, the body – said to be badly burnt – was carried by mourners aloft on a stretcher through East Jerusalem, The Associated Press reports.

Israeli forces blow up homes of Palestinian suspects’ families

Israeli forces in Hebron late Monday blew up the homes of two Palestinians Israel says are prime suspects in the kidnapping and killing of three teens who were found dead earlier that evening, witnesses said.

The two houses, which are both located in the same neighborhood in northwest Hebron, belong to the families of Marwan al-Qawasmeh, 29, and Amer Abu Eisha, 33.

After Israeli forces in Halhul north of Hebron found three bodies presumed to be those of three Israeli teens who went missing on June 12, soldiers surrounded the houses, forcibly removed the families, and declared the area a closed military zone, locals said.

Witnesses said the homes were then blown up by explosives.

Locals had told Ma’an earlier that soldiers were preparing to demolish the homes.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said that the homes “were not demolished,” but said Israeli forces searched the houses late Monday.

The world is sick of Israel and its insanities

What a cruel world: Three yeshiva students were kidnapped, and the world isn’t interested; three mothers are crying out, and the world doesn’t answer. It’s all because the entire world is against us; it’s anti-Semitic and hates Israel. The Anti-Defamation League is already preparing a report. But the truth is, that’s just the way things are: When you openly thumb your nose at the world for years on end, eventually, it thumbs its nose back.

EXAMPLES OF HATE SPEECH BY ISRAEL AGAINST PALESTINE

"We enthusiastically chose to become a colonial society, ignoring international treaties, expropriating lands, transferring settlers from Israel to the occupied territories, engaging in theft and finding justification for all these activities. Passionately desiring to keep the occupied territories, we developed two judicial systems: one - progressive, liberal - in Israel; and the other - cruel, injurious - in the occupied territories. In effect, we established an apartheid regime in the occupied territories immediately following their capture. That oppressive regime exists to this day."
(Michael Ben-Yair, 3 March 2002) (emphasis added)

RABBI CALLS FOR MORE BLOODSHED VIA FACBOOK

The head of the World Bnei Akiva youth movement called for the “blood of the enemy” in revenge for the murder of Eyal Yifrah, Naftali Fraenkel and Gil-Ad Shaer on Facebook post he wrote after the discovery of the slain teenagers.

In a post written on Monday, World Bnei Akiva secretary general Rabbi Noam Perel wrote: “Three corpses of our youths were found cast on the field, an entire nation and thousands of years of history demands revenge, the government of Israel is convening for a revenge hearing which is not about mourning, the master of the house has gone crazy at the sight of the corpses of its sons, a government which will turn the army that was searching into vengeful soldiers, soldiers that will not stop at 300 Philistine foreskins.”

Liberal Zionists’ denial of Israeli racism heightens danger to ‘everyone living in this land’ — Blumenthal

Here’s an interview I did with Max Blumenthal in West Jerusalem last September near where he made the video “Feeling the Hate in Jerusalem.” I asked him about criticisms that he had distorted the character of Israeli society in that video, and Blumenthal said the opposite was the case: he had captured a rising strain in that society. He said that racism is rampant inside Israeli discourse and that the lynching of a Palestinian near where we stood was straight out of Alabama in the 1940s.

Black Listed NewsBombings Continue as Israeli Troops Mass on Gaza Border

A Palestinian argues with Israeli border police in Jerusalem on Wednesday, July 2, 2014. (Photo: AP)As tensions rise and violence continues between Israeli military forces and Palestinians, a buildup on the border of the Gaza Strip on Thursday is creating worry that a large scale bombardment or military operation of the sealed-off enclave may soon occur.

Israel has launched dozens of airstrikes into Gaza this week as street-level skirmishes in the occupied West Bank have followed the murder of both Israeli and Palestinian teenagers and other civilians in recent weeks.

Outlets report a surge in IDF forces moving to the border region on Thursday amid continuing airstrikes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I a betting woman, I would bet that this American 3 day weekend, starting tomorrow, will be a time when Israel's IDF will inflict as many massive casualties in Gaza as they think they can get away with.

And I have to wonder if we will see the following tee shirts on display in Israel soon:
