National Summit a Resounding Success

The National Summit to Reassess the U.S.-Israel “Special Relationship,” held on March 7, 2014 at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, was a stunning achievement. Knowledgeable experts at this nonpartisan symposium examined the impact of U.S. financial, military, and diplomatic support for Israel. At least 350 attendees gathered from all over the country (and as far away as Japan). The Press Club had to set up extra chairs to accommodate an overflow audience, which exceeded all expectations.

We’ve heard from readers around the country who watched the entire event on C-Span. And then repeated it throughout the evening. If you missed it, please visit http://natsummit.org/ for a link to watch C-Span’s broadcast.

Soon we will post our own film, complete with visuals C-Span couldn’t capture, and we’ll also post transcripts.

As rockets rain down, Liberman calls for IDF to recapture Gaza

Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman on Wednesday evening said the IDF should reoccupy the Gaza Strip in response to an ongoing, massive rocket bombardment of southern Israel, and said that the Israeli government must defend its citizens even if it jeopardized peace talks with the Palestinians.

Webmaster's Commentary:

IDF Tanks in Gaza After 60 Rockets Hit Israel

Israel ‘regrets’ killing judge as tensions increase with Jordan

Israel expressed “regret” Tuesday over the shooting of a Jordanian judge at a border crossing, but its army insisted he had attacked soldiers and tried to grab a gun.

The shooting on Monday set off a diplomatic row between Israel and Amman — which signed a peace treaty 20 years ago — with Jordan’s prime minister saying Israel is “completely responsible” and demanding an apology for the “hideous” shooting.

The Israeli army said 38-year-old Raed Zeiter, a Palestinian with Jordanian citizenship who worked as a judge in Amman, had charged at the soldiers with a metal pole while shouting “Allahu Akbar” (God is greatest), prompting them to fire at his legs.

“The suspect then began to strangle a soldier and the force resorted to using live fire once again,” killing the man, the army said.

POSSIBLE FALSE FLAG - Gaza militants fire barrage of rockets into southern Israel

A barrage of at least 25 rockets was fired from the Gaza Strip into southern Israel on Wednesday evening. There were no casualties.

The IDF's Iron Dome system successfully intercepted three rockets.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let's see, 3 out of 25 interceptions is a 12% hit rate; not exactly a successful system, yet the US Government just sent Israel another $400 million to pay for more of the same.

Cost per Iron dome missile, is $35,000 to $50,000 each (not including amortized cost of the launching systems).

Cost of the home-made rockets used by Gaza (or Israelis playing at being Gazans), roughly $800, launched from a wood ramp.

From a purely economic point of view, Israel is losing this battle, although Israel doesn't care because the American taxpayer picks up the tab.

Six Palestinians killed in 24 hours by Israeli forces

Tuesday marked a day of funerals as Palestinians across the West Bank and Gaza mourned six killed by Israeli forces within twenty-four hours. Three were killed in the West Bank in separate instances and three were killed in the Gaza Strip from an air strike. Four others were killed Tuesday afternoon in Gaza during a “work accident” while constructing an explosive according to a statement by Hamas, bringing the total casualty count to ten.

In the West Bank on Monday Israeli border police at the Allenby crossing shot a Jordanian judge during an altercation on a bus. Raed Zeitar, 38, originally from Nablus had been living in Jordan since 2011 and was en route to the West Bank to visit his six-year old daughter who is hospitalized in a coma. In a statement the Israeli army said Zeitar was fired at after he attempted to seize an officer’s weapon

The Israeli military stated that “Upon arrival of the vessels at the Ashdod port, the activists will be transferred to the custody of the Israel Police and immigration authorities in the Ministry of Interior”.

Freedom Waves to Gaza organizers have been unable to communicate with the ships since soon after the vessels were approached by Israeli warships earlier this afternoon.

BDS AND THE AMERICAN JEWISH COMMUNITY

The use of name-calling like “anti-Semites” and “delegtimizers” is problematic for a number of reasons, not only because its claims are untrue, but also because it takes the focus off the real issue at hand – whether and how Israel is, in fact, violating international law and basic human rights principles – and, instead, recklessly impugns the characters of those advocating for Israel to be held accountable.

"Arabs Out!" The Knesset Voted

On March 11, 2014, the Knesset approved the Governability Law, the first of three crucial laws$ to be voted this week, the last of the Knesset winter's season.

Netanyahu's clumsy attempt to force the vote of his coalition failed, but the cheap trick was not necessary for this law. It was approved with 67 votes out of the Knesset's 120 seats while boycotted by Jewish and Arab opposition parties, including the Labor, Shas, United Arab List-Ta'al and United Torah Judaism.

On the surface, the law is quite innocent.

FLASHBACK - Why I Call Myself a Holocaust Denier by Paul Eisen

Thinking back, I suspect my response would have been something like: Ah yes, Deir Yassin, the one stain on an otherwise unblemished Zionist record. (The line had come, pretty much verbatim from my reading (age eleven) of the blockbuster Exodus.) And anyway, I would have reasoned, was not the fevered anguish of the Zionist leadership (later referred to by me as ‘Jewish breast-beating’) yet more evidence of an essential Jewish moral grandeur?

Sure, I’d known about Deir Yassin – both the village and the massacre – but I had not known, nor probably wanted to know, about the close to five hundred other destroyed or depopulated Palestinian villages or about the seventy known massacres which accompanied the ethnic cleansing of Palestine.

U.S. gives Israel $429 million for Iron Dome

Israel and the United States have signed an agreement guaranteeing continued American support for the Iron Dome missile defense system, including an immediate transfer of $429 million.

The March 5 agreement "ensures continued U.S. funding for procurement of Iron Dome systems and interceptors, and provides for significant co-production opportunities for U.S. industry," according to a U.S. Missile Defense Agency press release. The immediate transfer of funding for Iron Dome procurement was also part of the agreement.

Senior Iran army official calls reports of arms smuggling ship ‘Western-Hebrew propaganda’

Iran’s deputy chief of staff of the Iranian armed forces Brig.-Gen. Massoud Jazayeri dismissed media reports on Sunday that Israel seized an Iranian ship smuggling weapons.

“The Americans and the Zionists have probably ordered to Hollywood the production of a movie with the scenario of a cargo ship carrying Iranian weapons to Gaza in Palestine,” said Jazayeri according to Iran’s Fars news agency.

“Their fake and repetitious media products as well as psychological operations will have no achievement other than defeat, humiliation and deepening the Iranian nation and even the world people’s mistrust of them,” he said.

Netanyahu's message on Iran arms ship: It's the world against Israel

Here and there during the live broadcast of the government propaganda event staged at the Israel Navy base in Eilat, the camera lingered on the face of Deputy Chief of Staff Maj.-Gen. Gadi Eizenkot. Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz understood that the media circus surrounding the seizure of the ship carrying Iranian weapons had run its course over the weekend, which is why he took off Saturday night to make a previously scheduled visit to the United States. Eizenkot, a disciplined soldier, was required to take his place on the dock in Eilat, alongside the prime minister and defense minister. For a time it looked as if the deputy chief of staff would have preferred to be elsewhere, though perhaps it just seemed that way to this observer.

US allocates $429 million to Iron Dome program

The United States and Israel signed an agreement last week to “continue support of the production of the Iron Dome weapon system,” according to a statement over the weekend from the Missile Defense Agency of the US Department of Defense.

The agreement, concluded last Wednesday, “ensures continued US funding for procurement of Iron Dome systems and interceptors, and provides for significant co-production opportunities for US industry. Under the terms of the agreement, $429 million will be transferred immediately to Israel to support Iron Dome procurement.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let me see if I have this correctly; we have homeless Veterans sleeping in our streets; the infrastructure in this country is crumbling; people are being thrown into homelessness and poverty by offshoring/outsourcing...and we are still sending $429 million dollars to Israel to "...support Iron Dome procurement"?!?!?

What is the cost/benefit ratio, even if US companies will be making components for it?!?

Does anyone out there think, with all the problems the US has at home, that this is the highest and best use of our tax dollars?!?

I certainly do not.


And this came right in time for AIPAC, I see, with not a whisper of it in the American press when it was actually agreed upon!

Author Warns of Racist Movement in Israel Looking for ‘Right to Kill Non-Jewish Children’

Author and syndicated columnist Allan Brownfeld, speaking at Institute for Research’s Middle East Policy conference on Friday, warned the audience of the rise of “racism” in Israel against non-Jews. He said that there is a popular movement in Israel which takes its cues from a popular book, “financed by the Israeli government,” arguing for the right of Jews to kill non-Jews. Brownfeld added that this extremism dates back to early 19th Century Europe.

“In Israel itself, there is a growth of racism,” Brownfeld began. “There is a growth of religious extremism.

“The book, The King’s Torah, was a best seller,” He continued. “This is a book that said Jews and non-Jews are basically different in nature. Jews are much closer or to God than non-Jews who are referred to as uncompassionate.”

The call for boycotting Israel has grown significantly in recent years. The main purpose of this global campaign is to bring Israel to account for its human rights violations against Palestinians.

US upgrades Israel to status above any other country

The House Foreign Affairs Committee approved on Wednesday a bill that would enhance US-Israel defence ties and waived US entrance visa for Israelis.

Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Congressman Ted Deutch initiated the bill as they are the top two members on the committee's Middle East subcommittee; they strongly supported the bill, which was unanimously approved.

The bill named Israel a "major strategic ally" of the United States. It included measures that would encourage enhanced cooperation such as missile development, energy and security. No other state has ever got this status.

Netanyahu: I did not commit to freeze settlement construction

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that he did not commit to freezing settlement construction during his meeting with US President Barack Obama and that he will reject any agreement with the Palestinians that does not meet Israel’s security needs.

Israel Radio quoted Netanyahu on Friday, on his way back to Israel, telling Israeli journalists that he considered extending the negotiating period between the Israelis and Palestinians in US Secretary of State John Kerry’s framework agreement unlikely to make a difference for the Israeli coalition government, as most of its members reject the idea of establishing a Palestinian state.

Iran says Israel fabricated Gaza weapons claim

Iran's foreign minister on Friday sharply rejected an Israeli allegation that Tehran tried to ship missiles to the Hamas-run Gaza Strip, calling it a "lie", APA reports quoting AFP.

Israel has said it captured a Gaza-bound ship Wednesday carrying dozens of Syrian-made rockets "capable of striking anywhere in Israel".

The raid coincided with a high-profile US trip by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who met with President Barack Obama for discussions on a Middle East peace deal.

"Netanyahu is in Washington... and all of a sudden as a godsend, they capture a ship from Iran with missiles. Just a coincidence?" Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said during an official visit to Jakarta.

"If Netanyahu is a saint and can produce miracles I believe the Israelis themselves will be amused by that," he said.

"So if you cannot believe in miracles by Netanyahu, the only thing that you can believe is that this is a lie. And it is a lie."

Israel cuts off water supply to 45,000 Palestinians

Some 45,000 Palestinians living in the Shuafat refugee camp and the suburbs of Ras Shehadeh, Ras Khamis, As-Salam and Anata in Jerusalem have had their water cut off for nearly three days.

The residents said Israel's water company Gihon started by gradually reducing the water supply nearly two weeks ago until it stopped entirely.

A member of Shuafat's popular committee; Khaled Al-Khalidi said on Wednesday that 23,000 refugees had no access to water for three days while the residents of Ras Shehadeh; Ras Khamis, As-Salam and Anata have been without water for 20 days.

Al-Khalidi demanded "UNRWA, the camp's service provider, to fulfil its obligations towards the refugees and prosecute the Jerusalem municipality and Gihon to oblige them to return the water supply."

This is nasty, vile, and completely unwarranted.

US seeks nuclear war with Russia, China: Pundit

The US and its NATO allies are capitalizing on the crisis in Ukraine to justify a nuclear war against Russia and China, a political analyst tells Press TV.

In a Friday interview, Mike Billington warned that as a result of Washington’s provocations regarding the Ukrainian crisis, the international community is “on the brink of a global thermonuclear war.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is not a wild fantasy. The US after more than ten years of war is economically and financially exhausted, and between the lack of the manufacturing advantage that allowed the US to be on the winning side of WW1 and WW2, and the fact that our highly expensive weapons systems are turning out to be mostly junk, we cannot prevail against Russia in a conventional war, especially if China joins in. Hence, somewhere between now and final capitulation by the US Government, the US will use their nuclear arsenal.

US Foreign Policy, Israel and collective responsibility

Are the citizens of the United States of America aware of their country's external policymaking? Not the lies and tales peddled as the truth in their biased media but the truth, the whole truth and nothing but? Does the average American agree with a policy of bulldozing homes or with vetoing a Resolution which condemns it?

The list of US vetoes of UN Security Council Resolutions condemning Israel for excesses is long and on the list are vetoes of Resolutions which guaranteed human rights, which condemned Israel for abuses, for aggression, for wanton destruction of property. The United States of America has also vetoed condemnation of policy which included seizing land and building settlements on it, displacing the residents, desecrating their farms and cemeteries.

American Jews are probably the largest group among West Bank settlers; they live among Palestinians because they can't tolerate Jewish cities.

BEX ALERT - Israel says naval raid seizes Iranian shipment of advanced rockets bound for Gaza militants

Israeli naval forces raided a ship in the Red Sea early Wednesday and seized dozens of advanced rockets from Iran destined for Palestinian militants in Gaza that would have significantly boosted their ability to strike Israeli citizens, the military said.

The ship, the KLOS C, was carrying Syrian-made M-302 rockets and was intercepted more than 1,000 miles (1,600 kilometres) south of Israel off the coasts of Sudan and Eritrea, military spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner told reporters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Note that the rockets are admitted to be made in Syria, but Israel wants to put the blame on Iran.

During her time in the detention cell she had access to a cell phone, from which she contacted colleagues at CODEPINK about the poor conditions of the cell and chronicled her ordeal via Twitter. When the Egyptian police removed her from the detention center, they used such excessive force she sustained a fracture and torn ligament in her shoulder.

Palestinian Authority Must 'Stand on the Right Side of History'

The Prime Minister received rigorous applause as he described his visit to Israeli field hospitals treating Syrians injured in that country's civil war.

He described how a mother and child were "blown to bits by Iranian bombs" fired by the Assad regime, and how patients voiced how they had come to realize that they had been "lied to" about Israel for decades by their leaders.

"In a Middle East bludgeoned by barbarism Israel is humane, Israel is compassionate, Israel is a force for good," he said, contrasting Israel's humanitarian efforts worldwide to Iran's support for terrorism and oppression of its own people.

Netanyahu also emphasized the threat posed to the US specifically by Iran, noting that whilst the Islamic Republic already had missiles which could reach Israel, it was building longer-range Inter-Continental Ballistic Missiles (ICBMs). The purpose of those missiles, he said, was specifically to target America.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel only creates good when it is propaganda-worthy, Mr. Prime Minister, as in the case of the Syrian people which were (alleged) fired upon by al-Assad forces, and treated in Israeli hospitals.

But let us talk quite plainly about the harm Israel does - even to the permanently maiming - and killing - Palestinians. As reported in the Amnesty International Report, which hit the blogs 4 days ago:

Israeli security forces use excessive force against Palestinians in the West Bank and display "callous disregard" for human life, Amnesty International said Thursday. In a report called "Trigger-Happy: Israel’s Use of Excessive Force in the West Bank," the human rights organization says Israeli soldiers and police killed 45 Palestinians since 2011, nearly half of them last year. In all cases examined by the organization, the Palestinians killed did not appear to pose a direct or immediate threat to life, Amnesty said. In some cases, the organization said it found “evidence that they were victims of willful killings.” The findings point to a “harrowing pattern of unlawful killings and unwarranted injuries” of Palestinian civilians, Amnesty’s Middle East and North Africa director Philip Luther said in a press release. In addition to 261 Palestinians seriously injured by live fire in the same period, 8,000 were wounded by other means, including tear gas and rubber-coated metal bullets, many during demonstrations against Israel’s policies. http://www.latimes.com/world/worldnow/la-fg-wn-israel-amnesty-international-palestinians-20140227,0,5026359.story#ixzz2v19ySAT3

A government condoning and enabling these acts on the part of the IDF and Israeli police cannot possibly be considered "...a force for good."

And as to that accusation against Iran, that it was building SCUDS with which to target the US: the Iranian leadership is many things, but it is not stupid. Why in the name of heaven would they be contemplating attacking the US when they know that the US's military response will be to turn Iran into a molten sea of glass?!? The short answer is, they would not, particularly not now, when they are getting everything they want through negotiations.

And please remember, Mr. Prime Minister: the Iranian Constitution protects minority religions, such as Christians and Jews, and there are religious representatives from those faiths in the Iranian Parliament, the Majlis.

Are Palestinian Muslims protected by the Israeli Constitution?!? NO, BECAUSE ISRAEL HAS NO CONSTITUTION, 60 plus years on!!

Netanyahu mentions ‘BDS’ 18 times in denouncing movement and its ‘gullible fellow travelers’

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu devoted more attention to the boycott, divestment, and sanctions movement (BDS) than he did to John Kerry’s peace plans in his speech this morning to the Israel lobby organization the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Bibi just confirmed BDS is working! SPREAD THE WORD! KEEP UP THE PRESSURE!

Israel real threat to world peace: Analyst

In an interview with Press TV on Sunday, James Morris, a US-based commentator, said that Tel Aviv threatens both the region and the entire world, stressing, “How many wars has Israel started in the Middle East? Lebanon, Gaza, Palestine, over and over.”

“So, I think the real threat to world peace is Israel, and unless we address that, we could be on the brink of the next world war,” added the analyst.

Morris further described Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as “hypocritical,” saying Tel Aviv uses Iran’s nuclear issue as a “pretext” to set the stage for another war in the Middle East.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Worth consideration as more and more evidence of an Israeli hand in the Ukrainian coup d'etat surfaces.

US has ‘neocon agenda’ in Ukraine, Russia: Analyst

The United States is pursuing a “neocon agenda” in Ukraine and Russia in order to weaken and destabilize the two countries, a political commentator says.

There is a “neocon effort to go after Russia because Russia did not support the war for Israel agenda against Israel’s enemies,” said James Morris, an editor for America-hijacked.com, an anti-Zionist blog.

“So the neocons would like to weaken Russia and that’s what we see happening in Ukraine,” Morris told Press TV on Monday.

Israeli Ukrainian Dual Citizens Financed Protests in Ukraine

One breezy evening last September, Viktor Pinchuk, Ukraine’s second-richest man, stepped onstage at the Livadia Palace in the Black Sea resort of Yalta to introduce the star speaker of the annual international conference he hosts to promote his country’s ties with the West: former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Nearby, at a table set for an exquisite five-course meal, sat her husband; they were joined in the hall by Shimon Peres and Tony Blair, as well as a number of former European heads of state, top diplomats, and business tycoons. “Mr. President, you are really a super star,” Pinchuk told Bill Clinton in a seemingly apologetic tone, “but Secretary Clinton, she is a real, real mega star.”

American dies in Israeli prison shootout

An American Jew serving a 24-year sentence in Israel for murder in Maryland was shot and killed by prison guards Sunday.

The Israeli Police Service confirmed the death of Samuel Sheinbein, 34, at Rimonim Prison after he wounded three guards.

Sheinbein was convicted in 1999 of the especially grisly murder two years earlier of Enrique Tello Jr., 19, in Aspen Hill, Md., a Washington, D.C. suburb. In a plot that began with jealousy over a girl, Sheinbein and a friend killed Tello by choking, stabbing and beating him — a rehearsal before targeting the rival — police said.

After the dismembered and burned remains were found in a vacant house in 1997, Sheinbein, then 17, fled to Israel with the help of his father, Sol Sheinbein, a lawyer who held dual citizenship in Israel and the United States. Under his father's status, the son qualified for Israeli citizenship.

Netanyahu to Obama: Palestinians not doing enough to advance peace

As U.S. President Barack Obama continued to prod Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu toward peace with the Palestinians, the Israeli leader told the president yesterday that Israel has already shouldered enough of the burden.

“Israel has been doing its part and, I regret to say, the Palestinians have not,” Netanyahu said before a meeting in the Oval Office.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF ANYONE on the world stage could give master classes in "Blaming the Victims", that guy would have to be Netanyahu.

What would you like, Mr. Prime Minister?!? That every single Palestinian fall over dead, and stop breathing?!? Would that be the much cherished "Final Solution" you want in your heart of hearts, but dare not breathe to the outside world? I would highly suspect that would be the case.

But it is not going to happen. Palestinian women are making certain that will not happen, by having a higher live birth rate than their Israeli female counterparts. The demographics here are against you, and potentially against the state of Israel all together. All the world is asking for is a reasonable response which creates a win/win for the Israeli people and the Palestinian people.

Now, please don't get me wrong: I want to see a flourishing Israel standing beside a flourishing Palestine, where there is trade of goods, and people of good will working for the common good between both countries.

John McCain Thanks AIPAC for Supporting Military Intervention in Syria

At the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conference on Monday, U.S. Sen. John McCain thanked AIPAC for its stance in favor of American military action in Syria last summer following the Bashar al-Assad regime’s chemical attack that killed 1,429 civilians.

The Obama administration, despite previously setting a “red line” of chemical weapons use in Syria, eventually agreed to a Russian-brokered deal to place Syria’s chemical stockpile under international supervision, rather than proceeding with a military strike.

Kerry: US sides with Israel over Iran

The United States will stand by Israel’s side when it comes to the ongoing nuclear talks with Iran, US Secretary of State John Kerry said Monday.

Speaking at the annual conference of pro-Israeli lobby group AIPAC in Washington D.C., Kerry said US approach toward Iran is not “trust and verify” but “verify and verify.”

The top US diplomat once again threatened Tehran with more sanctions if the talks fail, according to Haaretz.

Ukraine: Israeli Special Forces Unit under Neo-Nazi Command Involved in Maidan Riots

Under the title “In Kiev, an Israeli army vet led a street-fighting unit”, the Jewish News Agency JTA confirms that soldiers from the IDF were involved in the EuroMaidan protest movement under the direct command of the Neo-Nazi Svoboda Party. The Svoboda Party follows in the footsteps of World War II Nazi collaborator Stepan Bandera.

The leader of the “Blue Helmets of Maidan” is Delta “the nom de guerre of the commander of a Jewish-led militia force that participated in the Ukrainian revolution”. Delta is a Veteran of the notorious Givati infantry brigade, which was involved in numerous operations directed against Gaza including Operation Cast Lead in 2008-2009.

The Givati brigade was responsible for the massacres in the Tel el-Hawa neighborhood of Gaza. Delta, the leader of the EuroMaidan IDF unit acknowledges that he acquired his urban combat skills in the Shu’alei Shimshon reconnaissance battalion of the Givati brigade.

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

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

Peres to Plead for Pollard – Again

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

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

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

UK warns of possible Easter terrorist attack in Nigeria

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

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

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

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

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

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

Israel asks US for $700 million in military aid

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

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

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

Israeli troops destroy four Palestinian homes and 52 electricity pylons

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

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

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

Spying on the Spies

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary:

INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT DENIES JUSTICE TO PALESTINE

The International Criminal Court will not investigate Israel’s conduct during its December 2008 offensive on Gaza because Palestine is not a state, the world prosecutor said Tuesday.

In a statement, the ICC prosecutor acknowledged that over 130 countries and some UN bodies recognize Palestine as a state.

But, Palestine still holds observer status in the UN, and so the ICC cannot at this time investigate allegations of war crimes committed on Palestinian territory, the prosecutor said.

Freedom of Speech Except When It Comes to Israel

It would be funny if it wasn't so creepy. An author or journalist can write anything he wants about the United States -- or, in fact, about any foreign country -- without causing legions of critics to question the propriety of his doing so. That is, unless the subject of the author's work is Israel.

Think about it. Books have accused FDR of having advance knowledge of Pearl Harbor while others argue that the U.S. government -- in the form of the FBI, CIA or even Vice President Lyndon Johnson -- had President Kennedy killed. In other words, books that accuse U.S. presidents and U.S. government agencies of high treason are okay. This is America, and authors, journalists and bloggers can write what they like. (So long as it isn't libelous.)

Bail for couple charged in Hutt art scam

Alessandra Frigero-Briones, 33, of Chile, and Eliyahu Daniel Shafir, 23, of Israel, appeared at Upper Hutt District Court this afternoon charged with two counts each of obtaining by deception on April 2. The amount totalled $750.

Both were to surrender their passports to the court and cannot apply for any new passports or travel documents. Frigero-Briones and Shafir both entered no plea and will appear again on April 18.

Police said earlier that three alleged scammers in the Silverstream area were attempting to sell artwork door-to-door and were leading buyers to believe the works were worth much more than they were.

Israeli spying in the US is a topic the government, and the news media, don’t like to talk about, and yet the GAO has stated [.pdf] the Israelis run the “most aggressive espionage operation against the United States of any US ally” and that “classified military information and sensitive military technologies are high-priority targets for the intelligence agencies of this country.”

In view of this, a new Wired report that Israeli companies are a key link in the government’s top secret high-tech spying operation, code-named “Stellar Wind,” is sure to raise eyebrows.

FLASHBACK - Most Members of Congress Remain Committed to Israel’s Blockade of Gaza

Administration officials and Washington lawmakers indicated the United States is not willing to urge Israel to lift its blockade of Gaza, even as activists seek to highlight the issue after civilian deaths during Israel’s interception of a Gaza-bound flotilla.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With the recent release of the United Nations Human Rights Council report condemning the brutal Israeli attack on the flotilla and declaring the blockade of Gaza a violation of international law, every single member of the United States Government who supports that blockade is an accessory after-the-fact in a violation of international law. How much longer will we live in a nation run by criminals willing to subvert the laws for Israel's gains?

Back in 1948 and 1949, the USSR imposed a blockade on West Berlin to starve that nation into abandoning their elected leaders and accepting Soviet rule. This is identical to the situation in Gaza where Israel is trying to starve the Palestinians into abandoning their elected leaders and accepting Israeli rule.

But back in 19648, we had a far more moral and principled government that had the spine to stand up for what is right, and the US and its allies launched the Berlin Airlift, flying 200,000 flights into Berlin, delivering 13,000 tons of goods per day for a year until the blockade collapsed.

Oh to have real leaders like that again!

"On the radio talk shows and T.V.
You hear one thing again and again
How the U.S.A. stands for freedom
And we come to the aid of a friend

But who are the ones that we call our friends
These governments killing their own?
Or the people who finally can't take anymore
So they pick up a gun, or a brick, or a stone

And there are lives in the balance
There are people under fire
There are children at the cannons

And there is blood on the wire..."
