Malta sinking killed hundreds fleeing Gaza

Time – and the news – moves on. Quickly. So, with the war over, Gaza remains in the news but off the front pages. ISIS has now taken the lead.

Still every now and then an interesting reminder of the Gaza war surfaces. In this case, by drowning. At first it seemed that the boat deliberately sunk off the Malta coast last week was another case of human trafficking gone from bad to worse. Horrible but unrelated to Israel/Palestine. Now reports have it that 250-300 of as many as 500 drowned were refugees from Gaza. They were attempting to escape what is left of the prison walls in Gaza.

US guilty of war crimes in Palestine

The U.S. is not a neutral mediator in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict; it is an active participant and is guilty of the crimes being committed by Israel against Palestinians, most recently, the mass killings and destruction Israel wrought on the Gaza Strip during the summer. The reality that the U.S. is an active supporter of unimaginable suffering may very well be the motivating force behind the U.S.’s adamant attempts to block the Palestinians from using any of the internationally recognized tools of accountability to hold Israel responsible, such as the International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court. When an indigenous, stateless population is blocked access to opportunities for justice by superpowers like the U.S., something is wrong—deadly wrong.

Hot Off The Press: Were The Revisionists Correct All Along?

Israeli archaeologist Yoram Haimi reported today on Ynet (Hebrew) that his international team has now identified the location of a real Gas Chambers in Sobibor concentration camp.

Haimi admitted that “Sobibor is the only place where you can witness an original Gas Chamber, the way it operated in reality.”

Mazal Tov - a real gas chamber at last.

If this is the case - if Sobibor is indeed the only place where an “original gas chamber” can be witnessed, then the Holocaust Revisionists who were subject to State terror and persecution, let alone endless harassment by the hands of Zionist and anti alike, were telling the truth all along. The Gas Chambers that have been exhibited to tourists were built after the war. This revelation is both embarrassing yet reassuring. Truth liberates us after all.

New Questions Raised About NSA-Israel Intelligence Sharing

Recently reported comments made by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden about the U.S. government's intelligence-sharing practices with Israel, paired with rare public protest last week by members of a secretive Israeli spy unit, are raising new and troubling questions.

The series of developments concerns Snowden's revelation last year that the NSA routinely gave unedited communications of U.S. citizens to Israeli intelligence units, including names and other private information of Arab-Americans and Palestinian-Americans with family in the region, which Snowden told Wired reporter James Bamford in August risked turning their relatives into targets for abuse.

Just 43 Israeli Reserve Soldiers Stand Against IDF and SIGINT

Forty-three reserve soldiers and officers in Israel’s prestigious military intelligence gathering unit, Unit 8200, have refused to take any further part in the gathering of information on Palestinian society in the West Bank.

Their stand is the latest expression of the growing opposition within the armed forces to the ongoing repression of the Palestinian people.

FOREIGN AFFAIRS AS OPERA BUFFA: THE GLOBAL FIGHT AGAINST ISIS

The real beheadings which occur regularly in Saudi Arabia – there was a batch of 19 only recently – are never shown on American news, nor are they even discussed. But a single video of a fake terrorist beheading is played and replayed and commented on endlessly with indignation over such horror. And the hundreds of Palestinians, including children, whom Israel has beheaded with bombs and artillery never make an appearance on television or rate any commentary.

Senator Warren’s progressive supporters demand accountability for her rightwing pro-Israel positioning

Warren has focused her legislative work and public speaking almost exclusively on consumer protection, finance and other economic issues that have struck a populist chord with Democrats and independents, many of whom are enthusiastic fans of the freshman senator from Massachusetts. By political calculation she has been almost silent on international issues and has rarely spoken out on questions of war and peace that are also important to her progressive base. As MW has reported, she literally ran away from commenting on the Israeli attack on Gaza.

Were Journalists Spying for the U.S. and Israel?

• Two Americans allegedly executed by IS militants may have been more than just mere journalists.

Videos of two American journalists working in Syria were released recently that purportedly showed their execution by beheading allegedly by members of the Islamic State, also known as ISIS. However, several facts suggest that James Wright “Jim” Foley and Steven Joel Sotloff may have been more than just frontline war reporters. They may have been spies for the United States and Israel.

Gazans fleeing to Europe via tunnels, traffickers and boats

Haaretz reports this morning that “Thousands of Palestinians have left the Gaza Strip for Europe using tunnels, traffickers and boats.” The following is a devastating glimpse into the continuous ethnic cleansing of Palestine. Europe is silent about it, the Western media is also silent about it. I guess that discussing this unfolding tragedy in the open would lead to a diplomatic clash with Israel and an open conflict with its Jewish lobby.

Congress currently is considering the reauthorization of the Higher Education Act, or HEA, which includes the allocation of federal funds to 129 international studies and foreign language centers at universities nationwide.

Most of the ten organizations working on the reform effort are Jewish.

Organizations involved in education, the Jewish community and civil rights are working together to ensure there is oversight of universities. The goal is to require recipients of federal funding to implement grievance procedures and for the Department of Education to include a complaint resolution process.

Al Mezan represents 22 of the 24 detainees still held by Israel. “At least eight that were visited by the lawyer were subjected to torture,” Younis added. “It doesn’t mean the others were not.”

Palestine and the ICC

The question of Palestinian membership in the International Criminal Court has become a battleground in the Israel-Palestine conflict. For months the Palestinian Authority has been threatening to join the ICC. Israel and its Western allies are vigorously opposed to this and have threatened to withdraw financial aid from the PA if it pursues membership. The US senate, for example, debated legislation in 2012 that would cut off millions of dollars in assistance to the PA, and the EU has reportedly said it will withhold aid for re-building Gaza after the latest assault, if the PA were to bring a case against Israel. As a result the PA has delayed joining the Court and instead has been using the threat of membership to try to extract concessions from Israel; for instance, the ICC was reportedly discussed during recent negotiations over a Gaza ceasefire.

Israeli drone spying on Iran took off from Nakhchivan: Sources

An Israeli spy drone which Iran recently downed on its way to one of the Iranian nuclear site had taken off from an air base in Azerbaijan’s Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic, sources say.

The anonymous sources said the Hermes drone, which was taken down by Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) forces on August 23 after 300 kilometers of flight, was bound for the Natanz enrichment facility in central Iran.

The revelation about the Israeli drone's launch site indicates Baku’s involvement in the spying mission, the unnamed sources claimed.

PDF of "report" on anti-semitism being sent to US colleges and universities.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Following up on the termination of Steven Salaita and the leaked email from ADL demanding US colleges and universities suppress pro-Palestinian groups and activities, we find this document which is being circulated to those institutions of higher learning indoctrination which defines as anti-semitism areas of intellectual inquiry that would be considered protected free speech under the First Amendment. Pay attention in particular to Appendix 3, which includes as anti-semitism any discussions as to whether the official story of the holocaust has been exaggerated!

Under these guidelines, students mentioning that the Aushwitz museum revised downward the number of people who died there of all causes by 2.5 million would be declared anti-Semitic and subject to official silencing by the school.



From this document, it should be obvious that the real enemy of the American way of life is not Al Qaeda, not ISIS, not Russia, not China, but the state of Israel!

Debunking the "The Saudis did 9-11" nonsense!

And finally, here is some common sense that totally undermines the attempt to frame Saudi Arabia for 9-11. If Saudi Arabia really wanted to hurt the United States, they don't need to fly airplanes into skyscrapers to do it. All they have to do is ask for their money back, all at once. The resulting damage to the US financial system would make 9-11 look like a minor inconvenience in comparison.

And it would be perfectly legal for Saudi Arabia to ask for their money back.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am reposting this article because three pro-Israel congressmen are claiming that there is a secret 9-11 document that they are demanding to be made public, one that places the blame for 9-11 on Saudi Arabia. Walter Jones was on the Ron Paul channel recently pushing this latest attempt to protect Israel from the consequences of their actions.

Jones Lynch, and Massie are called a press conference to announce bill HR428, which will "authorize" the declassification of this hoax.

Now, we all know how DC works. If these congresscritters wanted the document to be made public they would leak it. They could send it ti WikiLeaks. It happens all the time. This caterwauling is just an attention-getting device to try to trick Americans into supporting this document before they have actually seen it, so that once it is released, they will support it because it is what "they" wanted!

This is actually a repeat of the same stunt they tried 2 years ago in which they tease the public with the story of a secret 9-11 document and try to get everyone to demand to see it. The document frames Saudi Arabia for 9-11, to protect Israel.

But as this article lays out, Saudi Arabia didn't have a motive to do 9-11, and if they wanted to hurt the US, they would not need airplanes into skyscrapers to do it.

American man suing to seize Gaza flotilla ships

The US Court of Appeals heard a case on Monday filed by an American terror victim who is seeking to seize 14 vessels that participated in the 2010 Gaza flotilla. The suit, which was originally filed in June 2011 by Dr. Alan Bauer, seeks to confiscate the 14 ships on the grounds that they were used in a hostile fashion against a nation friendly to the United States.

Israeli naval commandos boarded the boats that departed from Turkey in May 2010 after they disobeyed instructions from the Israel Defense Forces. The commandos immediately faced violent resistance upon boarding the main vessel, the Mavi Marmara. Ten Israeli commandos were injured and 10 Turkish activists were killed in the ensuing conflict.

Leaked email reveals ADL advice to universities urging anti-Palestine crackdown

As college students go back to class across the US, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is urging a renewed crackdown on Palestine solidarity activism on campus – and at least one California university leader appears to be receptive.

University of California, Davis Chancellor Linda Katehi’s office shared an email (full text below) from Seth Brysk, Central Pacific Regional Director for the ADL, with all of her university’s senior leadership on Monday.

The email warns about an upcoming day of action for Palestinian rights and calls for extra security and “discipline.”

It singles out the advocacy group American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) for special attention and makes thinly-veiled allegations of anti-Jewish activity.

The distribution list Katehi’s office sent Brysk’s memo to includes more than two dozen top administrators who make up the Council of Deans and Vice Chancellors, and Nick Crossley, the “emergency manager” of the UC Davis police department.

VANUNU'S PHOTOS OF DIMONA - 1985

Acting on his conscience, he carefully took about 60 photos of the top-secret labs and unique production processes involved. When some of these photos were originally published in the London Sunday Times' exposé, they confirmed his eyewitness testimony about the extent of Israel's nuclear weapons program and revealed Israel to be one of the world's top nuclear powers. To this day, the Israeli government refuses international inspection of Dimona and continues to deny the existence of its nuclear arsenal.

Israel has been stealing nuclear secrets and covertly making bombs since the 1950s. And western governments, including Britain and the US, turn a blind eye. But how can we expect Iran to curb its nuclear ambitions if the Israelis won't come clean?

Israel’s Worst-Kept Secret

Former CIA Director Robert Gates said so during his 2006 Senate confirmation hearings for secretary of defense, when he noted—while serving as a university president—that Iran is surrounded by “powers with nuclear weapons,” including “the Israelis to the west.” Former President Jimmy Carter said so in 2008 and again this year, in interviews and speeches in which he pegged the number of Israel’s nuclear warheads at 150 to around 300.
But due to a quirk of federal secrecy rules, such remarks generally cannot be made even now by those who work for the U.S. government and hold active security clearances. In fact, U.S. officials, even those on Capitol Hill, are routinely admonished not to mention the existence of an Israeli nuclear arsenal and occasionally punished when they do so.

West Bank Jewish settler population soars: settlers

Jerusalem (AFP) - Israeli settlers in the occupied West Bank numbered 382,031 at the end of June, up from 374,469 six months earlier, the leading settler organisation said on Tuesday.

Israel's settlement building, which is illegal under international law, is seen as an obstacle to any lasting peace with the Palestinians, who want their future state to be on land much of which Israel has annexed or built settlements on.

Last month, Israel announced plans to expropriate 400 hectares (988 acres) of Palestinian land in the Bethlehem area, its biggest land grab in the occupied territory in three decades.

The move brought strong international condemnation and a warning from Finance Minister Yair Lapid that Israel's settlement policy was eroding its international support.

The New "Regime Change" Plan - Attack Damascus From The South

There are serious active preparations for a new attack on Damascus. Anti-government forces, including the Al-Qaeda affiliate Jabhat al-Nusra, have been trained and equipped in Jordan and are now moving into their starting position in Quneitra governate in south-west Syria. (A similar plan in spring 2013 was only partially executed and later aborted.)

The anti-government forces now control a 40 miles (70km) long, three miles (5km) wide strip from Jordan along the Golan frontier up to Lebanon. This strip can be used to infiltrate into Hizbullah territory in south Lebanon but its main purpose is likely an attack on Damascus from the south. The Syrian military would have great difficulties to dislodge the anti-government forces from this strip as it is covered by Israeli anti-air and artillery fire.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When will this Administration collectively man up, and tell the American people the truth?!?

I am really, thoroughly disgusted with this government, and the interminable amounts of codswallop it expects Americans to swallow on a daily basis, in terms of the damned lies they are trying to get us to believe in to support this war.

This whole ISIS pretext for US military involvement, is about regime change in Syria and Iran, period, end of discussion.

The big questions here are, how soon Al-Assad will want to invoke his mutual defense pact with Iran, and just what Russia will do if, in fact, that mutual defense pact is invoked by Al-Assad.

Were I a betting woman, I would not bet against Russia getting involved militarily against the US in Iran's behalf.

And the hell of it is, neither the US nor Israel can reasonably expect to successfully wage a conventional war against Russia; they don't have the money, the manufacturing, or the troop strength to make this happen.

Additionally, I do not want to see the best and brightest of our military be killed or maimed for life over what is essentially a war for private profit.

And that is the dirty little secret of all wars; they are all ultimately about private profit.

Israel Created Hamas to Avoid Peace

According to Robert Dreyfuss, author of "Devil's Game: How the United States Helped Unleash Fundamentalist Islam":

"And beginning in 1967 through the late 1980s, Israel helped the Muslim Brotherhood establish itself in the occupied territories. It assisted Ahmed Yassin, the leader of the Brotherhood, in creating Hamas, betting that its Islamist character would weaken the PLO."

According to Charles Freeman, former US ambassador to Saudi Arabia, "Israel started Hamas. It was a project of Shin Bet [Isreali domestic intelligence agency], which had a feeling that they could use it to hem in the PLO."

How Israel helped create Hamas

Flashback:

It also obscures Hamas's curious history. To a certain degree, the Islamist organization whose militant wing has rained rockets on Israel the past few weeks has the Jewish state to thank for its existence. Hamas launched in 1988 in Gaza at the time of the first intifada, or uprising, with a charter now infamous for its anti-Semitism and its refusal to accept the existence of the Israeli state. But for more than a decade prior, Israeli authorities actively enabled its rise.

Toronto trustees expense everything from $28 cookies to $4,000 walking tours of Israel

Toronto public school board trustees have charged taxpayers for everything from $19 worth of groceries — including nuts and hand lotion — to a tour of Israel that cost almost $4,000.

Israel and the U.S. CREATED Hamas, Hezbollah and Al Qaeda

We’ve extensively documented that the U.S. and Israel created Al Qaeda and other terrorist groups in an attempt to fight other enemies.

Larry Johnson – a counterterrorism official at the U.S. State Department – says:

The Israelis are their own worst enemies when it comes to fighting terrorism. They are like a guy who sets fire to his hair and then tries to put it out by hitting it with a hammer. They do more to incite and sustain terrorism than curb it.

As one example, Israel helped create Hamas.

Why is Israel Absent from ISIS Fight?

What's wrong with this picture?

Israel gets $3 billion a year in military aid from the US. Over the last 60 years, the Jewish state has received about $250 billion worth of airplanes and armaments.

Yet when Obama appeals for a "a broad international coalition" to fight ISIS, which supposedly threatens the whole Middle East, Israel is not asked to join. Canada, Germany, Australia, France, Turkey ..all are asked..but not Israel.

Israel is the strongest military power in the region. But apparently it bears no responsibility to help contain this "threat."

Israeli spies rebel over mass-snooping on innocent Palestinians

Israeli politicians and a former military intelligence commander have hit back at reservists who criticized Israel for spying on ordinary Palestinians.

Last week, 43 Israeli military intelligence reservists signed a letter refusing to serve in the occupied Palestinian territories over fears snoops were planning to blackmail individuals into becoming informants. The letter alleged that Israel Defence Force Unit 8200 – Israel's equivalent of the NSA – undertook "all encompassing" surveillance of Palestinians' medical conditions, finances, sexual orientation and infidelity in order to gain information that might be used to blackmail individuals into becoming informants against their own people.

Ted Cruz another Israeli Mouthpiece

Presidential wannabe politicians seldom will champion an American First foreign policy, but are eager to stand behind a Pro-Zionist agenda, even at the expense of our own essential national interest. The mess that engulfs the Middle East is only getting worse. Throughout all the past administrations and swings in the post World War II cast of enemies, Israel is never mentioned by the establishment as a force that undermines American national security. The axiom that Zionism is an unquestioned ally and friend of the United States, goes unchallenged. Any honest evaluation of world affairs must concede that the political class accepts this illusion as fact. If this was not true, why does nothing ever improve in the regional caldron of eternal conflict?

Who is Behind the Islamic State (ISIL) Beheadings? Probing the SITE Intelligence Group

United Nations Reveals Close Links Between Israel and Terrorist Organizations in Syria

The UN remarks came in a report by its Secretary General on the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) during the period from May 29th to September 3rd 2014.

The report said that members of the so-called “armed opposition” transported 47 of its wounded members through “the ceasefire line” and handed them to the “Israeli army”, indicating that the “Israeli army” handed 43 of the wounded who were treated at the Israeli hospitals to the armed terrorist organizations

UN official confirms Israeli soldiers launched attacks from inside Gaza school

A senior UN official has confirmed that the Israeli military turned a school in the Gaza Strip into a military base during July's ground offensive. The comments last week by Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Children and Armed Conflict Leila Zerrougui corroborate a report that was published in The Times on August 5 ('Invaders turn abandoned school into command base').

Addressing a Security Council debate on children and armed conflict, Zerrougui said 244 schools, including 75 UNRWA schools, "were shelled by Israel's armed forces", adding that "one school was used as a military base by the IDF." Although she did not name the school, it has been confirmed to me this was a reference to Hani Naim Agriculture Secondary School for Boys in Beit Hanoun.

Infowars Characterizes Pro-Palestinians / Anti-Israelis as "Terrorists"

Infowars.com ran a dramatic, front-page story yesterday titled "FEDS FIND 9/11 TERROR MESSAGE ON BORDER FENCE". They linked to a Breitbart story, whose actual headline didn't contain the phrase "terror message" at all, but rather stated "Exclusive: Feds Find Anti-Israel and Pro-Palestine 9/11 Message to America on Border Fence."
It appears Infowars got their headline from Zionist website worldnetdaily.com. Drudge also ran the Breitbart story but used the WND "terror message" headline. Infowars own readers in the comment section appeared fed-up with Jones characterization of anti-Zionists as terrorists, as well as with Jones' bizarre capitulation to the "al qaeda did 9/11" crowd.

Israel's Genocidal War on Palestine Without End

It's longstanding Israeli policy. Palestinians aren't wanted. Israel considers them subhuman.

It wants them eliminated. It wants Jewish exclusivity. It wants maximum Jews and minimum Arabs.

Israel's entire history is blood-drenched. Depravity defines it. It's longstanding genocidal war on Palestine reflects it.

In 1985, then Israeli president Chaim Herzog said:

"We are certainly not willing to make partners of the Palestinians in any way in a land that was holy to our people for thousands of years. There can be no partner with the Jews of this land."

WHY DID THE WEST CREATE ISIS WHEN THEY ALREADY HAD ZIONISM?

If America had been truly serious about putting Iraq on the right path and instituting a genuine democracy, it would have issued legislation to protect human dignity and the right of the people to live within a framework of liberty, peace, security and safety! Instead, the United States did just the opposite, disrupting Iraq’s civilizational project.

“Strangely enough, America today is fighting ISIS, and has sent experts to Iraq for that very purpose. For whom? For the love of Iraqis? And for whose benefit does America support ISIS and provide it with weapons in Syria? For whose benefit does it support the al-Nusra Front? … Today it is essential for us to stand against, pay careful attention to, and analyze carefully, all American and Israeli plans. We must all join to defeat their criminal designs for undermining Iraq, and their tool of implementation, ISIS.”

De-hired Professor Steven Salaita Is a University's Worst Nightmare

Steven G. Salaita, whose job offer was rescinded after he posted vitriolic anti-Israel tweets during the recent Gaza war, made clear not long ago that he wants his position reinstated. At a September 9 press conference he dismissed reported efforts the university has made to reach a financial settlement instead. Meanwhile, at a meeting on September 10, the UIUC trustees soundly defeated a proposal to reconsider their withdrawal of the tenured position Salaita had been due to take up this semester

With the debate over the controversy brewing in university corridors, academic publications and in online discussions, pressure on the UIUC administration to reinstate Salaita has been growing. Five departments have voted no confidence in Chancellor Phyllis Wise, a handful of scholars have canceled planned lectures and events at UIUC, and several large academic organizations have issued statements condemning the decision not to hire Salaita.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Salaita was kicked out of his job, not for comments he made in a classroom, but comments he made as a private citizen that are protected by the First Amendment. Everyone who supports the termination of Salaita or of anyone for comments they make in private shows themselves to be an enemy of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, and everything America is supposed to stand for.

Palestinian Authority foils new Gaza war crimes probe

The leaders of the Palestinian Authority last month blocked efforts to bring Israeli war crimes in Gaza before the International Criminal Court (ICC), Al Jazeera’s investigative unit has discovered.

The TV channel revealed yesterday the existence of a letter from the office of top ICC prosecutor Fatou Bensouda (published in full by The Electronic Intifada below) in which she recounted a private 5 August meeting with Riad Malki, the PA foreign minister.

It is difficult to read her account of the meeting as anything other than Malki obstructing the process of investigating Israeli war crimes in Gaza.

A few months earlier, he had borrowed his cousin’s graduation gown to wear while posing in front of a camera. He had two years left to graduate from high school, and this portrait emboldened him to work even harder.

An Israeli rubber-coated steel bullet in the head, however, decimated his dreams and cut short his very young life.

However, the twenty surviving animals are finally receiving the medical assistance they direly need, thanks to animal rescue organisation Four Paws. The organisation was finally able to gain access to the damaged zoo and are currently on the ground, providing the remaining animals with food and life saving medicine, as well as restoring the water supply, which was cut off due to damaged pipes.

According to the Palestinian fishermen syndicate, Israeli gunboats have been opening fire daily at fishing boats, MENA reported.

A long-term truce in Gaza was agreed with Israel Aug 26. The ceasefire mediated by Egypt came into effect after the two sides agreed to an unlimited and immediate ceasefire. Last week, the Israeli navy arrested four Palestinian fishermen in the northern sea off Gaza Strip.

Israeli naval forces usually free detained fishermen after questioning them. Israel says it does so to fight smuggling of weapons to the enclave through the sea.

At least 65,000 people in the Gaza Strip are homeless after the recent seven-week conflict. Infrastructure ranging from water desalination centres to power plants lies in ruins. No formal Israeli ban prevents the import of reconstruction materials that were not made in Israel, but EU sources speaking on condition of anonymity say that in practice, Israeli security demands present them with a fait accompli.

Israel Slams Intel Soldiers Who Say They Won't Be 'Tools to Persecute' Palestinians

Israeli officials denounced 43 reservists for declaring they would no longer serve in the military’s main intelligence unit to protest the government’s policies toward the Palestinians.

The members of Intelligence Unit 8200 sent a letter to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu saying they refused to “take part in actions against Palestinians” and “continue serving as tools in cementing the military’s control over the Occupied Territories.” The letter, sent last week, singled out the unit’s surveillance of Palestinians, and accused it of collecting information that “is used for political persecution” and “harms innocent people.”

“Refusal to serve of any kind should be condemned,” Netanyahu said in a speech to a Tel Aviv cyber conference. “The political use that was made recently, including the airing of false accusations, is unacceptable. The Israeli Defense Forces, including all of its units, is the most moral army in the world.”

The American Establishment Combats Resurgent “Isolationist” Threat

It had become apparent in 2013 that the American people had grown averse to America’s involvement in wars, and this was given empirical confirmation by a poll conducted by the Pew Research Center in November 2013, which revealed that 51 percent of Americans believed that their country’s military involvement was excessive.[1] Once again the bugaboo of isolationism entered the mainstream spotlight, the derogatory label being attached to those who would like to cut back America’s global intervention.[2] Opposition to the alleged resurgent isolationism united all sectors of the mainstream establishment–liberals, moderates, and conservatives, the ultra-interventionist neoconservatives and the more moderate traditional foreign policy establishment.

Ohio University filibuster: harangue or free speech?

Reaching Wednesday’s Ohio University Student Senate meeting minutes before the scheduled 7:15 start (after a 90-min drive stretched to three hours by traffic), I saw a packed room with a speech already in progress. As I edged forward, I tripped on a step hidden by the crush of standing onlookers, and landed–Plunk!–on the floor.

A kind student checked that I was okay, and, fearing I’d be embarrassed (as I inwardly mocked myself for being oblivious to essentials like footing) assured me, “Don’t worry, no one noticed because the speaker’s Out-of-Order.” The woman talking turned out to be Bobcats for Israel President Becky Sebo, who’d apparently interrupted as soon as Senate President Megan Marzec called the meeting to order, cutting off her first announcement. Marzec had started to condemn the threats against “Rabbi Danielle,” the very OU Hillel Executice Director who helped ignite a furor against Marzec by demanding that she resign because of her “Blood-Bucket Challenge

“Greater Israel” or “Greater Khazaria”?

Divide and conquer is an age-old strategy for empire-builders. Drive your opponents to fight among themselves, then pillage and subjugate them. Josef Stalin successfully employed this method in World War II, with the fawning complicity of Winston Churchill and Franklin Roosevelt. Now the Zionists—and their American lackeys—are doing the same to establish Israeli hegemony throughout the Middle East and North Africa. And it was long planned. But is the intention merely for “Greater Israel”—“from the Nile to the Euphrates,” as Theodor Herzl proclaimed—or is this the first step toward a world empire we should call “Greater Khazaria”?

In 1982, the World Zionist Organization’s Department of Information, their propaganda arm, published “A Strategy for Israel in the Nineteen Eighties,” by Oded Yinon. This “Yinon Plan” has been followed for decades by Israel in order to establish “Greater Israel.”

Were Journalists Spying for the U.S. and Israel?

Videos of two American journalists working in Syria were released recently that purportedly showed their execution by beheading allegedly by members of the Islamic State, also known as ISIS. However, several facts suggest that James Wright “Jim” Foley and Steven Joel Sotloff may have been more than just frontline war reporters. They may have been spies for the United States and Israel.

Foley began work as a photojournalist in 2009 for the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) on projects in Iraq. He reported subsequently from Afghanistan, and in 2011 from Libya, where he was held for 44 days by militia loyal to former Libyan leader Muammar Qadaffi, who was assassinated by U.S.-backed rebels. In November 2012, Foley was reportedly captured by Islamic militia while working in Syria and interned for almost two years prior to his alleged execution.

Bennett, who arrived in town Saturday, was a surprise guest on Gaga’s stage, where the duo belted out their rendition of Jazz classic "I Can't Give You Anything But Love." Gaga later acknowledged her previous show in Israel in August 2009. But contrary to initial speculation, she did not deliver a message of peace or address the tensions in the region. Rather, she thanked her fans for "making Tel Aviv her home for a day" and tearfully bowed out.

"There is a taboo," said the visionary Edward Said, "on telling the truth about Palestine and the great destructive force behind Israel. Only when this truth is out can any of us be free."

For many people, the truth is out now. At last, they know. Those once intimidated into silence can't look away now. Staring at them from their TV, laptop, phone, is proof of the barbarism of the Israeli state and the great destructive force of its mentor and provider, the United States, the cowardice of European governments, and the collusion of others, such as Canada and Australian, in this epic crime.

The attack on Gaza was an attack on all of us. The siege of Gaza is a siege of all of us. The denial of justice to Palestinians is a symptom of much of humanity under siege and a warning that the threat of a new world war is growing by the day.

Gaza and the Threat of World War

On 31 July, the National Defense Panel in Washington published a remarkable document that called for the United States to prepare to fight six major wars simultaneously. At the top of the list were Russia and China – nuclear powers.

In one sense, a war against Russia has already begun. While the world watched horrified as Israel assaulted Gaza, similar atrocities in eastern Ukraine were barely news. At the time of writing, two Ukrainian cities of Russian-speaking people – Donetsk and Luhansk – are under siege: their people and hospitals and schools blitzed by a regime in Kiev that came to power in a putsch led by neo-Nazis backed and paid for by the United States. The coup was the climax of what the Russian political observer Sergei Glaziev describes as a 20-year “grooming of Ukrainian Nazis aimed at Russia”. Actual fascism has risen again in Europe and not one European leader has spoken against it, perhaps because the rise of fascism across Europe is now a truth that dares not speak its name.

Only Israel Can Put an End to the Horror in Gaza

The individual stories are tragically too many to recount in one short article. Whole families wiped out before breaking their fast during the holy month of Ramadan. Others, managing to reach shelter in U.N. buildings, killed just as they thought they were protected -- all coming to the awful realization that nowhere in this tiny strip of land is safe. Those lucky enough to survive this latest assault on Gaza have returned to rubble; the loss of loved ones compounded by the destruction of homes, family heirlooms, photographs and memories.

Walking Amid the Rubble of Gaza

I just returned from a visit to Gaza — my first since the war’s end — and found it ruined on a scale that I was not prepared for, despite all the pictures.

On the ground it can take you suddenly and squeeze the breath out of you. You drive through an area that is merely decrepit and derelict and crumbling, and then you come upon destruction that is of Hieronymus Bosch proportions.

University board formally rejects Salaita appointment

The University of Illinois board of trustees formally voted not to hire controversial professor Steven Salaita, whose anti-Israel tweets spurred university administrators to revoke the offer of a faculty position.

By an 8-1 vote on Thursday, the trustees voted to reject the faculty recommendation that Salaita be appointed to a tenured position with the American Indian Studies program at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

The vote supported the recommendation of the university’s president and chancellor, who had previously announced that they would not submit Salaita’s appointment to the board, but who then changed course and asked for a vote to reject.

According to a report by the Chicago Tribune, the board’s action in rejecting a faculty appointment was rare and possibly unprecedented.

Israeli reservists refuse to serve in military

A large number of Israeli reservists have refused to serve in the army in protest to the Israeli military's persistent harassment of civilians across the occupied Palestinian territories.

“We, veterans of Unit 8200, reserve soldiers both past and present, declare that we refuse to take part in actions against Palestinians and refuse to continue serving as tools in deepening the military control over the Occupied Territories," said the letter signed by more than 43 veterans of one of Israel’s most secretive military intelligence units --many of them still active reservists.

Yahoo reports that it is on the verge of releasing 1,500 pages of documents related to a long court battle over its participation in the PRISM program, a National Security Agency program revealed last summer as part of the Snowden leaks.

A leaked top-secret slide about PRISM shows that Yahoo was one of the first participants, having begun contributing to the database in March of 2008. It did so under severe duress. Company executives believed the government's demand for data was "unconstitutional and overbroad" and fought it in court.

Israeli Navy Boats Open Fire At Palestinian Fishermen In Gaza

The fishermen had to return to the shore without being able to fish despite the fact that they were not only in Palestinian waters, but also very close to the shore.

Under the ceasefire agreement, the fishermen are supposed to be allowed to fish within twelve nautical miles off the Gaza shore, but are continuously attacked by the navy ships.

Israeli war jets have also been heavily flying over different areas of the Gaza Strip.

Israel also continues to violate the ceasefire agreement, with repeated limited invasions into border areas, and bulldozing agricultural lands, especially in Khan Younis, in the southern part of the coastal region.

The army also continues to attack local farmers and workers in Palestinian lands, close to the border fence with Israel.

The Christian family refusing to give up its Bethlehem hill farm bulldozed by Israel

On his farm outside Bethlehem, Daher Nassar is picking apples from the ruins of the orchard he planted at least eight years ago. The fruit is scattered across ground freshly opened and imprinted with the tracks of a bulldozer. At the field’s edge, branches reach out from inside a mound of earth, the bark stripped and mangled, unripe almonds still clinging to the trees.

On 19 May a Palestinian shepherd from the village of Nahalin was out at first light and saw the bulldozer at work in the field, guarded by Israeli soldiers. By the time Nassar arrived the whole orchard – the best part of a decade’s work – was gone. His English is far from fluent, but there’s no mistaking the pain in his voice: “Why you broke the trees?”

A spokesperson for the Israeli military authorities in the West Bank said the trees were planted illegally on state land.

Israel's Deadly Attacks on Gaza Schools Constitute War Crimes: Human Rights Watch

Israel's military attacks on United Nations schools in Gaza that were sheltering thousands of displaced people slaughtered dozens of civilians "in violation of the laws of war," Human Rights Watch declared in a report released Thursday.

The humanitarian organization investigated three separate attacks on such schools that occurred in late July and early August, which together killed 45 people, 17 of them children. “Israel has offered no convincing explanation for these attacks on schools where people had gone for protection and the resulting carnage,” said Fred Abrahams, special adviser at Human Rights Watch.

The controversy around Urban Moving Systems (active as a business since approximately 1996) centers around the fact that it was a Mossad front company, and whether or not the "employees" (agents) knew what was about to go down on September 11th. There were also, according to the FBI report, traces of explosive in the van used in the Dancing Israelis incident. Were members of this group involved in rigging the towers for demolition? Were they part of a Sayeret Yahalom demolition team?

Israel committed genocide in Gaza: EU delegation

An official European Parliament delegation that visited the besieged Gaza Strip after the recent Israeli onslaught on the blockaded area says Israel has committed “genocide” against the defenseless Palestinians, Press TV reports.

The delegation, which includes 13 members of the European Parliament, has called on the EU to break diplomatic ties with Israel and implement sanctions against Tel Aviv because of the war crimes it has committed against the Palestinian people.

“I don’t think it is too strong a word, not when you think of how genocide is described; it’s described as the partial or the whole destruction of people; and what we are seeing happen in Gaza, in Palestine, is the destruction of Palestinians,” Martina Anderson, an Irish member of the European Parliament, told Press TV.

Seeing Through The ISIS Script...No Cigar!

By L. Reichard White

September 11, 2014

Maybe it started with The Wizard of Oz, but it’s gotten completely out of hand. First there was al-Qaeda (“The Base“), apparently a name invented by the U.S. Justice Department to link a series of attacks to Osama bin Laden. But this newest ISIS franchise, conveniently billed as “too violent for al-Qaeda,” has taken off and its popularity makes “Breaking Bad” look like a Jr. High School class play. In rural Wyoming.

But the script needs some patching.

Israel likely to have committed Gaza war crimes: HRW

Israel is likely to have committed war crimes in Gaza, Human Rights Watch said on Thursday, a day after the Army announced five criminal investigations into incidents involving its forces.

The 50-day Gaza war between Israel and Hamas-led militants ended on August 26 after killing more than 2,100 Palestinians, most of them civilians, and 73 people on the Israeli side, 67 of them soldiers.

The New York-based rights watchdog said in a statement that in three cases it examined, Israel caused "numerous civilian casualties in violation of the laws of war".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And every sitting member of Congress is an accessory to those war crimes.

“What Israeli interest does it serve to put two million people in a cage?” Levy asks. “Tens of thousands of Palestinian children will never forget what Israel has done to them and their parents in this [July 8th-August 26th] war. That is something Israel should have taken into account: another generation of hatred like never before, and very justified hatred.”

The "Pod People" And The PlaneThat Crashed Into the Pentagon

As we run up to yet another anniversary of the 9-11 false-flag attacks, the government's controlled assets on the web are once again pushing the "no plane at the Pentagon" hoax as hard as they can, to give the corporate media an easy means to discredit those who question the official story while avoiding the really tough questions like, "Why did the BBC announce the collapse of World Trade Center 7 twenty six minutes before it actually happened?" Or, "How did President Bush's Secret Service know he was not a target sitting in that school on Florida?"

The media cannot ask, let alone answer, those questions, so the propagandists gin up this "No plane" theory and plant it online to give the corporate media an easy handle with which to ridicule and dismiss the whole idea of doubting the official story of 9-11.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In the wake of Richard Gage's C-SPAN appearance and the comment made by the New York Times Chief Correspondent David Sanger, "We've not found any evidence so far to suggest that the building collapses were caused by anything other than the two airplanes" I am once again being flooded with emails demanding (under threats in some cases) that I simply MUST post the "evidence" that a passenger jet did not really crash into the Pentagon on 9-11.

WEBMASTER NOTE: Right now the corporate media is shoveling ISIS at us as hard as they can, in an obvious propaganda campaign reminiscent of the similar campaign about "Al Qaeda" and "Osama Bin Laden" that preceded 9-11. Given how desperate the US Government is to revive the war agenda, we should be concerned that a new false-flag attack, bigger and bloodier than the World Trade Towers, is being considered.

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.

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.

"Dancing Israelis" Arrested On 9/11 Later Sued The Govt, But Lost Their Case

In 2004, four of the infamous "Dancing Israelis" filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against Attorney General John Ashcroft and wardens of the Federal Bureau of Prisons. They claimed that their detention was illegal and that their civil rights were violated, suffering racial slurs, physical violence, religious discrimination, rough interrogations, deprivation of sleep, and many other offenses. The lawsuit also stated "As Israelis and as Jews, plaintiffs themselves are sworn enemies of al-Qaida and Osama bin Laden."

Their lawyer announced "the law suit will serve as an important public forum to debunk the lie that Israel or the Mossad was behind the 9/11 terrorist attacks. It will show that there was no Jewish conspiracy as the Arab world continues to claim and put an end to this racist blood libel."

Sharp drop in number of Jews in US Congress

The number of Jewish lawmakers in the US Congress is expected to shrink even further in the upcoming mid-term elections, stirring concern in Israel and among American Jewry about declining influence in Washington.

The number of Jewish members of the House of Representatives will likely decline from a record 31 in 2009 to 19, according to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.

The numbers dropped in part because of victories by the Tea Party wave of conservative Republicans in 2010 and retirements by veteran lawmakers elected in the 1970s and ’80s.

Antisemitism and criticism of Israel

I do not need Michael Gove to explain to me what antisemitism is (Gove attacks ‘antisemitic’ Israel boycotts, 10 September). I have been the object of antisemitism by two Conservative MPs, Sir Charles Taylor, who told me to “Get back to Tel Aviv”, and Sir Alec Douglas-Home, who admonished me that my loyalty should be to this country and not to Israel, bringing the proceedings of the House of Commons to a roaring halt. Harold Macmillan referred to me antisemitically in his diaries.

Of course the Holocaust, the Nazi slaughter of 6 million Jews, including many members of my family, was an atrocity unparalleled in human history. That does not provide justification for the Israelis murdering thousands of Palestinians. Since governments take no action against these massacres, it is right that communities and individuals should boycott Israeli products.

It had nothing to do with Hamas rockets. It was about preventing Palestinian self-determination. It was to sabotage Palestinian unity.

As Israel Assaulted Gaza, Its Supporters Pushed for Assaulting Iran

So, one would think that Israel’s supporters and lobby in the United States and elsewhere would be very busy trying to "justify" Israel’s possible war crimes and even genocide in Gaza, and present a more positive image of Israel after the carnage in Gaza. But, that was not the case. Israel’s supporters continued to push for more military war against, as usual, Iran, as well as sanctions – a harsh form of economic warfare – the casualties of which, as sanctions against Iraq in the 1990s demonstrated, can far exceed those of military wars. Consider the following.

"It is time to bomb Iran’s nuclear capabilities. It is time for the United States; if we are not going to stop Iran’s nukes, then let Israel do it. A friend will not put another friend in this kind of jeopardy."

Zionists try to close down Palestine solidarity group at Philadelphia university

Members of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) at Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, have sought legal advice after being falsely accused of anti-Semitism.

The accusations, made by a right-wing Zionist student and Israel-aligned media, have prompted an investigation by the university’s administration that could result in punishment of the Palestine solidarity group.

Temple University announced that it has sent the results of their investigation — which have not been made public — to the local district attorney’s office last week.

A Zionist student aggressively confronted and made racist comments to SJP members who were tabling during a large student organization information fair on 20 August. A student unaffiliated with SJP then slapped him in the face.

The Zionist student, who is also a fellow of CAMERA on Campus (a project of the right-wing, anti-Palestinian media watchdog group CAMERA) claimed that the students taunted him with an anti-Semitic slur.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Why aren’t we talking about racism and colonialism in the Salaita affair?

Systemic racism and colonialism extend far beyond (and in fact do not require) any conscious, willful intent to be racist or a colonizer (although they often do); rather, they simply need to produce outcomes that reinforce an entrenched historical pattern in which people of color and/or the colonized are disproportionately marginalized or harmed.

As such, these systemic injustices can be produced through any number of actions that are nominally colorblind and/or contain only unrecognized biases. Furthermore, because systemic racism is primarily a trait of a social system, rather than of individuals, it can actually be perpetuated by people of color, including Chancellor Wise and others on the University of Illinois’ board of trustees. In fact, systemic racism often benefits from and seeks out the inclusion of “multicultural diversity” because it helps to deflect attention and blame from ongoing racist outcomes.

Israeli war damaged 60 per cent of manufacturing capability in Gaza

The Israeli war destroyed around 500 economic facilities that form 60 per cent of the manufacturing capability in the Gaza Strip, the Palestinian Ministry of Economy said.

Speaking to the Palestinian news agency Safa, the ministry's spokesman Azmi Abdul Rahman said that the Israeli occupation premeditatedly targeted hundreds of the industrial, commercial and service facilities.

The commercial facilities included small shops and that paralysed the economy during the Israeli war. He stressed that the effect of the economic paralysis would last until the facilities were reconstructed.
