Another Jewish swindler flees US to Israel

Candidate to con man
Deli owner in string of scams said to be living free in Israel
By Sara Burnett, Rocky Mountain News (Contact)
Published December 27, 2008 at 12:05 a.m.

Arnold Zaler stood before a federal magistrate judge on the morning of March 11, about to pull off one of his best scams yet.

The businessman known to most as "Arnie" was charged with 30 counts of bank and wire fraud for a scheme involving his kosher hot dog company and Denver's biggest sports venues.

If convicted, he faced more than 30 years in prison.

The judge, with no objection from prosecutors, set Zaler's bail at $25,000, unsecured. Zaler could go free without posting any money or property, but he had to agree not to leave the state of Colorado.

That same day Zaler turned over his passport and temporary travel documents issued by Israel, where he has told people he has dual citizenship.

Powerful JINSA in US: Iran is the problem

JINSA Accuses Iran of Facilitating Rocket Attacks on Israel
* Monday December 29, 2008, 4:23 pm EST

WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs today accused Iran of facilitating Hamas rocket attacks on Israel.

“The role of Iran in the training and buildup of the Hamas arsenal has been regrettably overlooked by the world’s media and many of its political leaders,” said Tom Neumann, executive director of the Institute.

“Hamas’s rocket attacks have become longer range and more lethal as a result of Iranian assistance and training,” he said.

No country can remain on the sidelines while its towns and villages are subject to daily barrages of rockets, Neumann said. “Israel’s military response to the attacks came only after it had exhausted all other means.”

Amira Hass, Israeli journalist reports Gaza trauma

Israeli Journalist Decries Civilian Casualties in Gaza
By Greg Mitchell

NEW YORK (December 31, 2008) -- A powerful column appeared Tuesday in the Jerusalem daily Haaretz, written by one of its top correspondents, Amira Hass, reporting on Gaza, which opens: "This isn't the time to speak of ethics, but of precise intelligence. Whoever gave the instructions to send 100 of our planes, piloted by the best of our boys, to bomb and strafe enemy targets in Gaza is familiar with the many schools adjacent to those targets -- especially police stations. He also knew that at exactly 11:30 A.M. on Saturday, during the surprise assault on the enemy, all the children of the Strip would be in the streets - half just having finished the morning shift at school, the others en route to the afternoon shift."

FPA Statement 5 on the Gaza Strip Massacre

Consecutive Statements of the Free Palestine Alliance
A Tribute to Our Youth:
FPA Statement 5 on the Gaza Strip Massacre
December 31, 2008

This is the fifth in a series of statements the FPA is issuing daily on the ongoing Gaza massacre that has entered its fifth day. As of the time of writing this statement, at least 394 Palestinians have been murdered and more than 2,000 have been injured. The number of killed and injured continues to rise as the Zionist Israeli army persists in its savagery and more people are uncovered from under destroyed homes and neighborhoods.

The intense bombardment has been indiscriminate, targeting homes, markets, schools, neighborhoods, places of worship, along with administrative offices and government centers. Lest it is forgotten, these bombs are raining on the roofs and streets of a starved and besieged people, whose only lifeline and access to the world have been mere hand-made tunnels that have now been completely destroyed.

WTC7: NIST Finally Admits Freefall (Part II)

This video is a followup to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V0GHVE...
----------------------------
In its draft report, released in August 2008, NIST attempted to cover up evidence that WTC7 fell at freefall, but the coverup was transparent. In its final report, released in November 2008, NIST finally acknowledged freefall, but couched it in a bizarre framework that continues to deny its clear significance. Part I chronicles NIST's attempted obfuscation and eventual admission of freefall. Part II demonstrates that their replacement theory is based on fabricated evidence and is a continuation of the coverup. Part III will spell out the significance of NIST's admission of freefall.

Science vs. Personal Attacks - the upHILL Battle for 911 Truth

"Given to exaggeration in its feelings, a crowd is only impressed by excessive sentiments. An orator wishing to move a crowd must make an abusive use of violent affirmations. To exaggerate, to affirm, to resort to repetitions, and never to attempt to prove anything by reasoning are methods of argument well known to speakers at public meetings."

Israel 's Warships off Gaza coast, too

JERUSALEM - Israel's retaliation against persistent Hamas mortar and rocket attacks on civilians in southern Israel has been far more ferocious than anyone, including Hamas, expected.

The first few days of intensive Israel Air Force bombing in Gaza reduced hundreds of Hamas government buildings, military compounds, laboratories, metal workshops and supply tunnels to rubble and left more than 350 Palestinians, most of them militants, dead, according to UN and Hamas officials.

But as the air strikes continued and Israeli tanks massed on the Israel-Gaza border and Israeli warships lined up along Gaza's Mediterranean shoreline, it was not clear how much longer the operation would last or how its goals would be achieved.

Harper's Magazine- Justice after Bush:Prosecuting an outlaw administration

This administration did more than commit crimes. It waged war against the law itself. It transformed the Justice Department into a vehicle for voter suppression, and it also summarily dismissed the U.S. attorneys who attempted to investigate its wrongdoing. It issued wartime contracts to substandard vendors with inside connections, and it also defunded efforts to police their performance. It spied on church groups and political protesters, and it also introduced a sweeping surveillance program that was so clearly illegal that virtually the entire senior echelon of the Justice Department threatened to (but did not in fact) tender their resignations over it. It waged an illegal and disastrous war, and it did so by falsely representing to Congress and to the American public nearly every piece of intelligence it had on Iraq...

No prior administration has been so systematically or so brazenly lawless.

Cynthia McKinney Mentions USS Liberty on CNN - Full Video

"While American media regularly cover up Israeli actions, those of us who have visited the region first-hand witness a level of US-funded Israeli cruelty that makes us weep for our victims and fear for our country. While most Americans are uninformed on how Israel uses our money, people throughout the world are deeply aware that it is Americans who are funding Israeli crimes. Perhaps It's time to kick AIPAC out of the US and tell Israel they are on their own." ~ by legalizeliberty from the dailypaul.com

Blagojevich: Crazy or Crazy Like a Fox?

"If either someone in Springfield or in D.C. tries to stop Burris from being appointed, it will be challenged and likely heard by the Supreme Court. Legally, it appears the Supreme Court would have to side with Blagojevich. Blagojevich is Constitutionally mandated to choose the next Senator. That's what he's done. There is no evidence that the choice of Burris was untoward and so, there appears to be no legal reason to block Burris. Such a showdown would play right into the Governor's hands and hand him much needed political capital. He's already endeared himself to some elements within the Illinois African American community just by picking Burris."

...and it would deal a set-back for Rahm Emanuel in his bid to get another Jew in the United States Senate:

Ukraine threatens to ‘confiscate’ European gas

Gazprom says it has received a letter from Ukraine's energy company Naftogaz saying Kiev could decide to confiscate gas in transit to Europe, if its supplies are cut off over unpaid gas bills this New year. Gazprom has denied it has received any kind of payment so far from Kiev.

The contract for Russian gas supplies to Ukraine expires on December 31, 2008 but under the agreement, supplies can be cut starting 10 am January 1, 2009.

The Russian gas giant says it has notified the Czech Government, set to become the new President of the EU on Thursday, about what it calls Ukraine’s blackmail.

Constitutional curiosity

President Bush will unilaterally obligate the United States. Neither the Senate (pursuant to its constitutional role in ratifying treaties) nor the House will have any say. While the reduction of the Senate and House to ciphers in national security matters through executive agreements flouts the Constitution, it has become as commonplace as the rising and setting of the sun. It is no longer news.

Alexander Hamilton, who advocated a muscular executive, voiced the unambiguous consensus among the Founding Fathers that an unchecked president in foreign affairs would be dangerous - even with George Washington at the helm.

No Nonsense Nutrition Advice Most Of You Will Ignore In 2009

America is slightly schizophrenic when it comes to weight. If you open a newspaper you can simultaneously read that the five skinny women left must need counselling and society is to blame for that but anorexia is genetic even though that gene seems to only be present in middle-class white girls, all while we are the fattest country in the world. It can be confusing to people outside the US and anyone with a clue.

Which Was First, Religion To Help With Self Control Or Self Control Codified As Religion

Religious people have more self-control than non-religious counterparts, says a study by University of Miami professor of Psychology Michael McCullough and he says this is why religious people may be better at pursuing and achieving long-term goals and also might help explain why religious people tend to have lower rates of substance abuse, better school achievement, less delinquency, better health behaviors, less depression, and longer lives.

Israel's Constant Crisis: It's a survival mechanism

By Justin Raimondo

SNIP

Defenders of the Israeli government and its policies often complain that Israel just wants to be treated as a "normal country," like any other. They cavil that the Jewish state is treated like an outsider, a pariah, and held up to standards that don't apply anywhere else. The big problem for these complainants, however, is that Israel is not a normal country, and never has been.

Israel's War Crimes

The Israeli airstrikes on the Gaza Strip represent severe and massive violations of international humanitarian law as defined in the Geneva Conventions, both in regard to the obligations of an Occupying Power and in the requirements of the laws of war

Even the most naive American voter cannot be expected to see the morally, legally and politically questionable death sentence given to Saddam Hussein a milestone in the Bush Administration's illegal war in Iraq. As the milestones pile up, so do the bodies.
Those violations include:

• Collective punishment: The entire 1.5 million people who live in the crowded Gaza Strip are being punished for the actions of a few militants.

• Targeting civilians: The airstrikes were aimed at civilian areas in one of the most crowded stretches of land in the world, certainly the most densely populated area of the Middle East.

Israel’s Lie Machine is Working Flat Out

While the murderous assault on Gaza continues, I notice there's a briefing document on the website of the Israeli Embassy in London which has a lie in every line. The West's mainstream media repeat them, and even the most senior TV and radio interviewers don’t bother to challenge them.

The document is a transcript of Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni's statement to the Israeli press dated 27 December 2008 – a day that will live in infamy. It is a perfect example of the falsehoods used to dupe not only us westerners but Israel’s own people. The statement shows how the regime's view of itself is constructed on a web of dishonesty and self-delusion.

The Only thing to Fear is Homeland Security Itself

I am embarrassed by Michael Chertoff because I am an American. Dr. Ben Franklin said "Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety." Can someone please notify Chertoff of this philosophy?
