ISRAELI APARTHEID CAUGHT ON VIDEO

n September 2012, Israeli security forces put up a chain-link fence along al-Ibrahimi Street in Hebron, separating the paved road from a narrow, rough walkway. Since then, B’Tselem has twice documented security forces denying Palestinians access to the paved road, despite official claims that there is no such prohibition. On 25 July 2016, B’Tselem volunteer Raed Abu Ramileh filmed a Border Police officer seizing the bicycle of 8-year-old Anwar Burqan and throwing it in the bushes for riding it down the paved road, which is reserved for settlers.

The Shot Heard All Over the Country

The crew of an Israeli ambulance was treating the wounded soldier, ignoring the seriously wounded Arab who was lying on the ground. Several Israeli soldiers were standing around, also ignoring the Palestinian. About 10 minutes later Sergeant Elor Azaria, a medic, appeared on the scene, approached the wounded Palestinian and shot him pointblank in the head, killing him.

According to eyewitnesses, Azaria declared that "the terrorist must die". Later, on the advice of his phalanx of lawyers, Azaria claimed that he was afraid that the wounded Palestinian had an explosive charge on his body and was about to kill the soldiers around him – an assertion clearly disproved by the pictures which showed the soldiers standing nearby obviously unconcerned. Then there was a mysterious knife which was not there at the beginning of the clip and could be seen lying near the body at the end.

Money talks as Trump does U-turn on Israel

The grubby underside of US electoral politics is on show once again as the Democratic and Republican candidates prepare to fight it out for the presidency. And it doesn’t get seamier than the battle to prove how loyal each candidate is to Israel.

New depths are likely to be plumbed this week at the Republican convention in Cleveland, as Donald Trump is crowned the party’s nominee. His platform breaks with decades of United States policy to effectively deny the Palestinians any hope of statehood.

The question now is whether the Democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton, who positions herself as Israel’s greatest ally, will try to outbid Trump in cravenly submitting to the Israeli right.

Lieberman Compares Iran to Nazis, Iran Deal to Munich Pact…Again

Over the past few days, a tempest has been brewing after Pres. Obama defended his Iran nuclear agreement by correctly noting that the entire Israeli defense and intelligence leadership acknowledges that it has improved Israeli and world security. This apparently angered defense minister Avigdor Lieberman, who couldn’t leave well enough alone.

Benjamin Netanyahu accused of sabotaging peace, as Israeli authorities abuse Palestinian children

The head of one of Israel’s most successful companies has issued a blistering condemnation of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Daniel Birnbaum, the CEO of SodaStream, accused Netanyahu of “systemically spreading hate” and purposefully nurturing the conflict with the Palestinians “in all its evil manifestations”.

His scathing comments come as Israeli authorities move towards a “more aggressive approach” in dealing with Palestinian children accused of crimes, including the minor transgression of riding a bike.

Black activists slam Israel lobby attack on Movement for Black Lives

The Movement for Black Lives (MBL), a coalition of more than 50 Black-led organizations, provoked the wrath of the Israel lobby earlier this week following the release of its much anticipated policy platform, “A Vision for Black Lives.”

In response, voices from inside and outside the movement are pushing back without fear, signaling the shrinking effectiveness of Israel lobby groups in framing the narrative, particularly among the younger generation of social justice activists.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You gonna cry, Israel? You gonna cry now? Go ahead. Cry. Stamp your feet. Shake your fists. Roll around on the floor. Scream that we don't love you ... because we don't.

Israel lobby panics about ‘spoiled’ next generation of American leaders turning against it

This is no casual matter; the loss of the lobby is a “strategic risk,” Herzog said; and this is precisely why Jeffrey Goldberg and Alan Dershowitz and Dennis Ross and Aaron David Miller and Richard Haass and others vehemently denied the allegations in the paper and book The Israel Lobby, published 9 and 10 years ago, because identifying this power openly was a threat to it. To “Jewish enfranchisement,” as Goldberg stated on the stage of the Center for Jewish History.

Now ten years on, the Israel lobbyists face a greater threat than academic critics of the Israel lobby: young Americans, who are awaking to Palestinian conditions on college campuses, thanks to the efforts of Students for Justice in Palestine, Jewish Voice for Peace, and Black Lives Matter. And, pace Herzog, young Jewish Americans, the very Jews who are supposed to compose the leadership of the lobby– they’re deciding that Zionism with its inherent ethnic discrimination is not an ideology worth living for, yet alone dying for.

Black Lives Matter Platform Accuses Israel Of ‘Genocide’

Susiya village on brink of destruction by Israel

Israel’s high court placed the fate of the Palestinian village Susiya and its 340 residents in the hands of defense minister Avigdor Lieberman on Monday, leaving it to him to decide whether the army will demolish nearly half its structures, mostly ramshackle dwellings.

On Monday, the court punted a petition the village had submitted with Rabbis for Human Rights requesting that it compel Israel’s occupation administration to recognize the legality of structures that Palestinians had built without permits from the army.

What’s really behind Israel’s attack on Christian charity World Vision?

Israel grabbed global headlines on Thursday with sensational allegations that tens of millions of dollars from the Christian relief and advocacy organization World Vision had been diverted to the military wing of the resistance group Hamas in Gaza.

But a day later, the Israeli claims look more than ever like sloppy propaganda. A World Vision official says Israel’s sums don’t add up and it has also emerged that a Mossad-linked Israeli group has been stoking allegations against the charity for years.

NYPD Commissioner Bratton Resigns, Takes Job With Pro-Clinton, Pro-Israel Firm

e Commissioner William Bratton Speaks at The First National Personal Security Conference in Israel, 2014. (Photo: Israeli Ministry of Public Security) NEW YORK — (Analysis) New York City Police Commissioner Bill Bratton formally announced his resignation on Tuesday, marking the end of a tumultuous second term as the NYPD’s top cop. Bratton, largely seen as the architect of the “broken windows” law enforcement strategy that targets low-level offenses in order to stop larger offenses, has been heavily criticized by social justice advocates, who have charged that Bratton’s tactics amount to a targeting of people of color who are then saddled with criminal records, promoting further problems for themselves and their families.

Former AIPAC official says Israel should get no US aid without ending ‘oppressive’ settlements

Here is another sign that what had been quiet disagreement between American Jews and Israel is breaking out in the open, thanks to the approaching jubilee year of the occupation. Citing “nearly half a century” of occupation, a former AIPAC official comes out for conditioning US aid to Israel on that country agreeing to freeze its illegal settlements in the West Bank and Jerusalem. He says forthrightly that Israel’s “oppressive and discriminatory settlement policies in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem continue unabated.”

Greg Slabodkin, of Buffalo, is described as “a former opposition researcher for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee,” or AIPAC, in his piece in the Hill. The article is pegged to the news that the Obama administration is going to sign an aid package with Israel giving it $40 billion over ten years, “the biggest U.S. military aid package ever given to any country.”

HORRIFIC VIDEO SHOWS ISRAELI BORDER POLICE TERRORIZE 8-YO PALESTINIAN GIRL AND STEAL HER BIKE

An Israeli cop has been suspended after a heartbreaking video was posted online showing two officers terrorize an innocent 8-year-old Palestinian girl.

The video, which was taken last week and surfaced on Tuesday, shows two Israeli border officers confronting a terrified 8-year-old Palestinian girl, Anwar Burqan, on Hebron’s al-Ibrahimi St., demanding she stop on the roadside. When the first officer confronts the girl he stomps on her bike and berates her until she runs away screaming and crying.

After the girl runs away, another officer walks up, grabs her bike and throws it into the bushes.

According to Haaretz, large swaths of al-Ibrahimi St. are closed to Palestinian traffic. Apparently, the girl’s bicycle was confiscated because she was riding in a part of the street closed to Palestinians.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WOW, it takes a really MANLY Israeli cop to destroy a little Palestinian girl's bike for inadvertently driving on a portion of a street which is restricted for "her kind" of human, doesn't it?!?

Netanyahu will probably see to it that this guy gets promoted!!

The Enemy Of My Friend Is My Friend: Israel Accepts Billions From The US, But Maintains Ties With Al-Nusra

Late last month, Jabhat al-Nusra (the Nusra Front), al-Qaida’s Syrian arm, announced that it was severing ties with al-Qaida and renaming itself Jabhat Fatah al-Sham (the Front for the Conquest of Syria).

In a video, the group’s leader, Abu Mohamed al-Jolani, explained that the group’s association with al-Qaida permitted the outside powers intervening in the Syrian conflict to label it as an Islamic terrorist group.

The Guardian quoted al-Jolani as saying that the name change is intended “to remove the excuse used by the international community – spearheaded by America and Russia – to bombard and displace Muslims in the Levant: that they are targeting al-Nusra Front, which is associated with al-Qaida.”

Google slammed for removing Palestine from its maps

The Palestinian Journalists’ Forum has denounced Google for deleting the name of Palestine from its maps and replacing it with Israel.

In a statement released yesterday, the forum said Google’s decision to remove Palestine from its maps on 25 July “is part of the Israeli scheme to establish its name as a legitimate state for generations to come and abolish Palestine once and for all.”

“The move is also designed to falsify history, geography as well as the Palestinian people’s right to their homeland, and a failed attempt to tamper with the memory of Palestinians and Arabs as well as the world.”

The forum said the move was “contrary to all international norms and conventions”, stressing that Google should back track on its actions.

The Diary of Anne Frank 5.0, an update

Roemer appealed again, and this time the court asked for the technical services of the official German forensic bureau, the Bundes Kriminal Amt (BKA) that performed a careful analysis of the original manuscript of the diary with microscope and ultraviolet illumination in order to confirm its authenticity — in particular, to determine when it was written.

The BKA found that large portions of the alleged “diary” were written in ballpoint pen — of a type that was not manufactured prior to 1951.The German magazine, Der Spiegel, summarized the report as follows: some editing postdated 1951;Experts had held that all the writing in the journal was by the same hand; and thus – the entire diary was a postwar fake.

Video: Israeli soldier assaults child playing on Jews-only road

Eight-year-old Anwar Burqan was playing with her young sister and brothers in al-Ibrahimi Street, near their home in Hebron’s al-Salaima neighborhood on 25 July when their games were interrupted by Israel’s pervasive military occupation.

The video above, filmed by local resident Raed Abu Ramileh and published by the Israeli human rights group B’Tselem, shows some of what happened.

According to Anwar’s account, she was riding a bicycle belonging to one of her brothers when an Israeli Border Police combatant ran over, stepped on the bicycle and took it away from her.

The child can be seen raising her arm in apparent reflexive self-defense.

As can be heard in the video, the combatant shouts at her to “go home” and the child bursts into tears. The rifle-bearing soldier then throws the bicycle into the bushes.

The ‘New York Times’ is dead set on marginalizing Jewish anti-Zionism

The New York Times is pointedly ignoring an important ideological trend: the rise of Jewish anti-Zionism. A battle is taking place among Jews over the dead end that Jewish nationalism represents, but the paper of record is doing all it can to pretend that battle isn’t happening, and suffocate an explosive discussion.

Two days ago Haaretz ran two stunning op-eds by American Jewish historians Hasia Diner and Marjorie Feld titled, “We’re American Jewish Historians. This Is Why We’ve Left Zionism Behind,” saying that they cannot go comfortably into Jewish spaces that deny the Nakba any more. Diner related an ordeal that will resonate in the hearts of many other American Jews:

Children as young as 13 have been shot dead by security forces while allegedly attempting stabbing attacks and the Israeli mission to the UN said juveniles were responsible for 47 “acts of terrorism” since September.

People who claim Michael Jackson is still alive are not arrested and thrown in prison. People who claim to have been abducted by UFOs do not have their careers ruined. People who claim to have seen Bigfoot or the Loch Ness Monster are viewed as harmless eccentrics. Only in the case of the history of WW2 is the slightest questioning of the official story responded to with a middle-ages burning of all heretics who refuse to believe as they are told to believe.

Truth needs no law to support it. Truth is self-evident to all. Truth withstands re-examination. Truth survives questions. Throughout history, from Galileo to Zundel, only lies and liars have resorted to the courts to enforce adherence to dogma.

One would almost think the defenders of the orthodoxy have something to hide!

A high-ranking Israeli Government official admitted for the first time that thousands of children were kidnapped in the 1950s from their Jewish mothers and fathers who had fled Yemen, before being given or sold to Jewish Ashkenazi families. The official said that until today, those children do not know who their parents were, Asharq Al-Awsat reported. “The deliberate operation of stealing hundreds of children truly happened,” Minister-without-portfolio Tzachi Hanegbi of the Likud party said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here are the questions people need to ask about this ginormous transfer of wealth from the US to the Israeli government.

Will it cure Israel's pathological inability to get along with its neighbors?!?

No.

Will it encourage Israel to be a more responsible state actor in its treatment of Palestinians, and work with Palestinian leadership to create an equitable two, or one-state solution?

No.

Will it stop Israel's predilection for its serial genocide against the Palestinians, coupled with Israel's robust annexations of lands upon which Palestinians have lived for generations?

No.

I would like to remind our readers that this Israeli aid package comes at a time when our Vets are sleeping, homeless, on our streets; the American infrastructure is crumbling; and decent jobs in this country are disappearing, courtesy of corporate offshoring/outsourcing.

So what does this aid package actually do for We the People?!?

The short answer is, absolutely nothing; but it DOES make certain that the AIPAC money continues to flow for our "alleged" representatives, who obviously have elevated the welfare of a foreign nation far above any possible concerns of their constituents.

In their eyes, we have no relevance whatsoever; and hacked voting machines, where votes can become so easily turned, as demonstrated painfully clearly in the way Bernie Sanders lost the nomination to Hillary Clinton, can most probably keep vile these people in office indefinitely.

They held up the train for ten minutes as the man protested that he was doing nothing wrong. By this time his son was hysterical as other passengers surrounded the man to give (im)moral support to the Police. Eventually he agreed to leave the train and we continued on our journey.

Israeli Intelligence Debunks Notion of Russia Hacking DNC Emails

No evidence links Russia to hacking DNC emails. Accusations suggesting otherwise are baseless – the latest bashing episode, for geopolitical purposes, shifting attention from Hillary’s disturbing record, and electoral rigging of the primaries.

Israeli military intelligence/Mossad connected DEBKAfile said “an analysis by (its) intelligence and cyber defense sources has determined that” DNC emails hacking “almost certainly (was) not carried out by (Russia’s GRU) cyber warfare branch.”

Its determination is contrary to unjustifiable assertions by senior DNC officials, Obama, the Clinton campaign, administration-connected cyber espionage experts and mainstream media – pointing fingers the wrong way.

Netanyahu for Hillary

With Clinton, on the other hand, Netanyahu knows exactly what’s in store – more of the same, and from the prime minister’s perspective, what’s not to like? Despite the clear ideological differences between Netanyahu and Obama, and the clash over Iran’s nuclear ambitions, the latter’s administration has never wavered in its support for Israel when it really mattered for Jerusalem.

And neither will Clinton. Her record as a senator and secretary of state is one of a clear supporter of Israel. Under her stewardship, the State Department increased military assistance for Israel every year, from $2.55b. when she took office to $3.1b. in FY2013, a nearly 20 percent increase, while diplomatically she ensured the United States blocked UN Security Council resolutions for Palestinian statehood.

US, Israel forces stage secret military drill

Israel and the United States have reportedly staged a joint secret war game in southern Israel amid growing military cooperation between the two sides.

Israeli media said on Thursday that the drill dubbed ‘Noble Shirley’ was held in Negev Desert to improve cooperation between American and Israeli forces.

The drill, which was said to have been conducted during day and nighttime hours over the past week, involved the US Marine Corps as well as special units from the Israeli air, naval and ground forces.

During the exercise, the troops and commandos took part in drills simulating helicopter landings behind enemy lines, and urban warfare above and below ground. They also practiced close-range combat and military takeover techniques.

Israel’s so-called ‘David’s Sling’ missile system, which targets medium to long-range missiles, was also used in the maneuver.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

War against whom, please?!?

The Palestinians?!?

The Lebanese?!?

Syria?!?

Iran?!?

Making your most important geopolitical friend a country with history of pathologically being unable to get along with its neighbors cannot, possibly, be a smart move by the US government.

Clinton personally ensured pro-Israel platform, says adviser

Hillary Clinton personally asked an adviser, Wendy Sherman, to make sure the Democratic Party platform remained pro-Israel, Sherman said.

"I had very direct instructions from Secretary Clinton that there would be clarity about this issue and there would be no space," Sherman, a member of the committee drafting the platform, said Tuesday at an event hosted by the American Jewish Committee at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

At Convention, Hillary Clinton Stresses Israel’s Security, Not Quest for Peace

Indeed, in her own speech, Clinton’s only mention of Israel was bragging that the nuclear deal with Iran would protect Israel, and that she was determined to “keep supporting Israel’s security.” Conspicuously absent from the speech was any mention of the settlements, or indeed of the Palestinians.

It’s perhaps unsurprising, as Clinton’s AIPAC speech back in March similarly focused on the idea of bolstering military ties with Israel, while mentioning the Palestinians primarily as “terrorists,” and giving limited lip-service to the idea of getting a peace deal. Indeed, during the presidential primary Clinton’s opponent, Sen. Bernie Sanders (D – VT) faulted her for not being even-handed enough.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With Turkey opting out of the US agenda, following that botched coup, the US may want to use Israel as the new launching platform for the war in the Middle East. Israel will not like this, as it makes them a target, but for enough of your money, I am sure Netanyahu will agree.

Israel and U.S. are close to a deal on the biggest military aid package ever

A senior Israeli official will arrive in Washington next week for a final round of negotiations involving the largest military aid package the United States has ever given any country and that will last more than a decade after President Obama leaves office.

Brig. Gen. Yaakov Nagel, the acting head of Israel’s National Security Council, has been dispatched with instructions to meet with White House officials in hopes of signing an agreement “as soon as possible,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office said this week.

That represents a striking about-face for Netanyahu, who angered the Obama administration when he mused during a February meeting with his cabinet that Israel might decide to wait and “reach an agreement with the next administration.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And what, precisely, does such an illegal deal (under the Symington Amendment) bring to the people of the United States of America?!?

Does it bring peace and stability to the Middle East?!?

No.

Does it mean that the Israelis will stop its serial genocide against the Palestinians?!?

No.

Does it guarantee that Israel will not lash out at its regional neighbors, with whom it pathologically cannot get along?!?

No.

So what, precisely, does this deal do for the citizens of the United States of America?!?

It guarantees that no matter what Israel does, domestically or internationally, the next time Tel Aviv comes with its hand out for more American money, it is nearly assured that DC will give it to the Israeli government.

And this at a time when homeless Vets sleep in our streets; our infrastructure crumbles, and many Americans are homeless and financially suffering because of the massive offshoring/outsourcing of American jobs both parties allow?!?

If you think for one millisecond that your "alleged" Congressional Representative actually represents you, in any tangible way, to make your life better, just take a good, hard look at this deal, and ask, "What does this really do for me, and my brother and sister Americans?!?"

The short answer is, absolflippinglutely nothing.

As long as they get their money from lobbyists (corporate and governmental, like AIPAC), they don't give one rat's anus about you.

Please, peacefully, and forcefully, give every sitting member of Congress a pink slip this November, won't you?!?

These people do not deserve to be in Congress, because they have utterly forgotten precisely WHO they are supposed to be working for!

Suddenly, a Palestinian breast cancer survivor becomes a 'security threat'

Nadia Abu Nahla who survived breast cancer, is very late for the periodic medical checkup she needs. In 2009, she was successfully treated at Sheba Medical Center in Tel Hashomer. She underwent chemotherapy, an operation, radiation; she asked and received exit permits for all stages. Of all her family, only her mother was permitted to accompany her.

Afterward, Abu Nahla continued regular follow-ups with the team that treated her with dedication. It is known how critically important the follow-up is. The medical equipment needed for periodic exams is not found in the Gaza Strip. It is forbidden to import it. Severe limits on movement also impair the quality of treatment in Gaza. And in general, it is her right to remain under the supervision of the medical team that knows her so well.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How did this woman's request "not meet the criteria" for urgent medical care, under the circumstances?!?

This is yet another callous, inhumane example of Israel's "serial genocide", by refusing to provide desperately needed medical care to a breast cancer survivor.

I guess the wretchedly apartheid Israeli government official who rejected her request for care is hoping that whatever is causing her pain will kill her in the most slow and excruciating manner, or that she will commit suicide.

The Democrats did not do much better. CNN reported on July 10 that “Hillary Clinton supporters rejected an effort Saturday to add an amendment to the Democratic platform which would call for ‘an end to occupations and illegal settlements’ in Palestinian territories.” The rejection of that amendment dealt a blow to any hope that the platform would reflect and address the reality on the ground, a reality of occupation approaching its 50-year anniversary.

End U.S. Aid to Israel

Reams of research has established that foreign aid, which originated after World War II, has had a nearly negligible impact on economic growth. Sound policies – free markets, equitable prices, the encouragement of exports, and holding to disciplined macroeconomic rules – matter far more. Countries with correct policies do well in the development race; those without them fare poorly, regardless of how much aid is poured in.

The question is why the US government should keep pumping US taxpayers dollars to an economy that is better than most European countries.

The Israeli Attack on the USS Liberty - Paul Craig Roberts

Last month was the 49th anniversary of the Israeli attack on the American ship. I raised the issue of the USS Liberty eight or nine years ago in a syndicated newspaper column, which, as I suspected would be the case, only a few news sources dared to publish. However, the article editor at Hustler magazine saw the article and contacted me. He said that Hustler was popular among US sailors and now that they were again thrust into needless war they should be aware that the US government could sell them out without notice. Would I write the USS Liberty story for the sailors so they would be aware of the betrayal that might await them?

I had already seen that Admiral Moorer’s prediction that Israel would have us in war against the Arabs had come true. I still hear his bitter statement that “no American president can stand up to Israel.” Tom was deeply wounded by the betrayal of the US Navy by the Commander-in-Chief. The Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff was powerless before the Israel Lobby.

Israeli authorities destroy 11 Palestinian homes in Jerusalem

Israeli authorities early Tuesday destroyed 11 Palestinian homes in an area on the outskirts of Jerusalem divided from the city by Israel's separation wall, residents and an NGO said.

Israeli authorities did not respond to requests for information on the demolitions.

Gary Spedding - Sabbos Goy or Israeli Agent?

“We in the Palestinian Solidarity Movement Have a Problem With anti-Semitism,” writes Gary Spedding, a pro Palestinian 'lobbyist' in the Israeli outlet Haaretz. Spedding claims to be a Palestinian solidarity activist but his activism is better described as that of an ‘Israeli agent.’ Spedding’s article provides us with an extraordinary view of Left duplicity and its disastrous role in the solidarity movement.

“For me,” writes Spedding, “being equipped to recognize and call out anti-Semitism can only strengthen my Palestine advocacy.” And why? Because“having a clear definition of anti-Semitism helps to reassure the Jewish community.” The first question that comes to mind is why a ‘pro’ Palestinian wants to ‘reassure the Jewish community?’ If Spedding really wants to appease the Jews he should join AIPAC or enlist in the IDF’s Unit 300.

Freewheeling Trump has backed down on only one issue. Guess which one.

But then there’s this. Back in late winter Trump said he was going to be neutral in his position on Israel and Palestine so he could negotiate that deal of deals as president:

You’re not going to solve it if you’re going to be on one side or another. Everyone understands that. If I’m going to solve the problem, I want to go in with a clean slate.

He also shocked Israel supporters by saying that Israel should help pay for the American defense budget, not the other way around!

There was huge pushback on those positions, challenges on the Sunday talk shows, and . . . Trump backed off both positions in his speech to the Israel lobby group AIPAC in March.

Three hundred fifty SAVAK agents were shuttled each year to CIA training facilities in McLean, Virginia, where they learned the finer arts of interrogation and torture.

B’Tselem: 63% of casualties in 2014 war were civilians

Two years after Operation Protective Edge, a B’Tselem report said 1,394, or 63 percent, of the 2,202 Palestinians killed by the IDF did not take part in the conflict.

This is lower than the figure cited by the United Nations and other NGOs of 70% but is still higher than Israeli intelligence estimates of 50%. Sixty-six soldiers and seven civilians were killed on the Israeli side.

The data gathered by B’Tselem, and released on Wednesday, was collected from field researchers in Gaza, cross-referenced with publicly available data.

This report is the first time B’Tselem has collected data on the war. Prior to this all casualty numbers were based on outside figures.

According to B’Tselem spokeswoman Sarit Michaeli the purpose of the report is to inform the Israeli public of the war’s high death toll.

“Our main goal is to enable the Israeli public to be informed,” she said.

DEBUNKING THE MYTHS ABOUT GAZA ~~ A 20 MINUTE VIDEO

This is inspired. Two years after the onslaught on Gaza that killed over 2200 people, a group of activists, academics and artists has produced a new teaching video that aims at shifting the western narrative of the conflict.

Its new 20-minute video is called “Gaza in Context.” Narrated by Noura Erakat, the film points out the roots of the conflict: for 70 years Israel has sought as much Palestinian land with as few Palestinians on it as possible, and the peace process has only served as a cover for this project. Erakat uses simple descriptions to convey the reality, that Israel now seeks to accustom Palestinians to “domination as a way of life– an unfathomable possibility to all humans, whose first instinct is to be free.”

During an appearance on Monday before the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman reportedly said he believes that Israel and the United States will wrap up negotiations on long-term future American military aid by Rosh Hashanah, which this year begins on October 2. The comments were reported by two Knesset members who attended the meeting but asked not to be identified because the session was classified as secret.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported in activistpost.com 2 May 2016:

Falsely decried as an “anti-Israel” administration, the Obama White House is signaling that it is open to providing Israel with an unprecedented amount of support both in terms of financing and military assistance. If the reports coming out of Israeli media are true, the new agreement with Israel would be the largest amount of aid provided to any country in U.S. history. The US and Israel have been engaged in intense negotiations in recent months to outline US military aid to Israel for the next 10 years. Israel is demanding $40 billion over the next ten years, a sizeable jump from the $30 billion over 10 years given to Israel over the past decade. The tentative agreement is yet one more example of the falsity of the left-right paradigm that sees the “right” accuse the false “left” of being “weak on terror,” “weak on Iran,” and “anti-Israel” all while the false “left” is actually launching wars across the world, bullying Iran into accepting a deal it should by no means have to accept, and giving Israel the largest amount of assistance in U.S. history.

The President and the 83 Senators who signed this letter, apparently, need to be reminded of the following fact: under the Symington Amendment, all military and financial aid to Israel is completely illegal.

The Symington Amendment expressly forbids any aid to countries which will not sign the NNPT, and refuse to have their weapons facilities inspected; unlike Iran, Israel refuses to sign the NNPT, and have its nuclear facilities inspected.

But, then again, the President and Senators believe that law....only applies to "us little people", and not to themselves, particularly when it comes to Israel, even when that aid breaks American law, as it does in this instance.

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

Saudi Arabia is not going to risk an attack on the US because all that wealth would vanish. The Saudi wealth inside the US would be frozen or seized, and the outstanding loans to the US would never be repaid. The "useful idiots" trying to save Israel by blaming 9-11 on Saudi Arabia have yet to come up with a motive for the Saudis to do something like 9-11 that risks losing all that cash.

Remember that Saudi Arabia was being framed for 9-11 right from the start. One of the accused hijackers, a Saudi Pilot named Saeed Al-Ghamdi, was still alive after 9-11 and sued the US Government for defaming him.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The corporate media are screaming that the recently released 28 pages "convict" Saudi Arabia of 9-11.

Right.

And Saddam had nuclear weapons.

Apparently they are hoping that nobody has read those actual pages because there is nothing there but rumor and innuendo. It's all "may have", or "might be." There is nothing substantive at all.

And as this article (which I hope you will share on social media) points out, Saudi Arabia had no motive to commit 9-11, and even if they had reason to harm the US, they didn't need airplanes into sky scrapers to do it!

Outrage over German university’s dismissal of anti-Semitism expert

n unleashed a firestorm of criticism from scholars, students and Jewish organizations when it did not extend the employment contract of Dr. Samuel Salzborn - one of the most prominent academic experts in German anti-Semitism.

“It is a scandal! It shows that critical research on right-wing radicalism/anti-Semitism is not desired in Germany," Julius Schoeps, a leading German Jewish historian and a descendant of the 18th century philosopher Moses Mendelssohn, wrote The Jerusalem Post by email in early May. "One can only shake his head.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Maybe we are all just sick and tired of hearing about whatever it is that happened before we were all born, followed by a demand for more free stuff for Israel.

Read the comments. Apparently this "expert" has made some very bizarre statements over the years.

REMEMBERING ELIE WIESEL, THE NOBEL WINNING HOLOCAUST ‘SURVIVOR’

Wiesel was notorious for erasing non-Jewish victims of the Holocaust – Roma and LGBTQ – and defending Israel’s crimes against Palestinians.

In his later years, he also became an apologist for US imperial interventions, including the calamitous invasion of Iraq.

Craig Murray: Fox, Gould, Werritty and Israel – Please write to your MP

Hansard Publc Admininstration Committee 24/11/2011
Q<369> Paul Flynn: Okay. Matthew Gould has been the subject of a very serious complaint from two of my constituents, Pippa Bartolotti and Joyce Giblin. When they were briefly imprisoned in Israel, they met the ambassador, and they strongly believe—it is nothing to do with this case at all—that he was serving the interest of the Israeli Government, and not the interests of two British citizens. This has been the subject of correspondence.

In your report, you suggest that there were two meetings between the ambassador and Werritty and Liam Fox. Questions and letters have proved that, in fact, six such meetings took place. There are a number of issues around this. I do not normally fall for conspiracy theories, but the ambassador has proclaimed himself to be a Zionist and he has previously served in Iran, in the service. Werritty is a self-proclaimed—

Robert Halfon: Point of order, Chairman. What is the point of this?

Paul Flynn: Let me get to it. Werritty is a self-proclaimed expert on Iran.

Chair: I have to take a point of order.

Robert Halfon: Mr Flynn is implying that the British ambassador to Israel is working for a foreign power, which is out of order.

Israel seeks to 'publicly shame' human rights groups

The Israeli government stands accused of waging a campaign of incitement against human rights groups as it tries to hamper efforts by the international community to monitor abuses of Palestinians under occupation.

A so-called Transparency Law, passed by the Israeli parliament last week, compels some two dozen Israeli rights organisations to declare publicly that they receive a majority of their funding from foreign governments.

Israel's Great Divide - Al Jazeera World
In future, they will have to divulge such funding - mostly from individual European states or the European Union - every time they appear in the media, issue publicity material, make statements online, and deal with official bodies. Failure to do so will incur a substantial fine.

The legislation's aim, peace activists argue, is to vilify these groups with the Israeli public, suggesting they are "foreign agents" and "traitors" seeking to subvert Israel's security and its national interests.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

People who tell the truth are not "an enemy of the Israeli people; people who desire to SUPPRESS the truth are the true enemies of the Israeli people!

Zero Days

Alex Gibney’s ZERO DAYS is a documentary thriller about the world of cyberwar. For the first time, the film tells the complete story of Stuxnet, a piece of self-replicating computer malware (known as a “worm” for its ability to burrow from computer to computer on its own) that the U.S. and Israel unleashed to destroy a key part of an Iranian nuclear facility, and which ultimately spread beyond its intended target. ZERO DAYS is the most comprehensive accounting to date of how a clandestine mission hatched by two allies with clashing agendas opened forever the Pandora’s Box of cyberwarfare. Beyond the technical aspects of the story, ZERO DAYS reveals a web of intrigue involving the CIA, the US Military's new cyber command, Israel's Mossad and Operations that include both espionage and covert assassinations but also a new generation of cyberweapons whose destructive power is matched only by Nuclear War.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Claire and I caught this documentary on cable last night. On the negative side, Gibney shows a very pro-Israel anti-Iran slant in the telling of the story, suggesting that Israel was right to do what they did with STUXNET because Iran was building a bomb, and even including the now discredited quote from Ahmadinejad about wiping Israel off of the map.

On the positive side, it is an in-depth telling of the story of the development of STUXNET by NSA, GCHQ, and Israel as the first of a new breed of cyber weapons that can actually cause harm in the real world. I don't want to give the story away, but it reveals that the only reason STUXNET was discovered at all was a reckless push to increase its aggressiveness, which called attention to its existence.

Netanyahu and Son Investigated for Using False Passport, Money Laundering Via Panama Account

Winston Churchill said after one of the earliest Allied victories during WWII: this is not the end, not even the beginning of the end. Rather it’s the end of the beginning. I think we’re more advanced in the case of Netanyahu. We may have just entered the beginning of the end of his seemingly endless reign over Israeli politics.

THAT CLASSIFIED 9/11 REPORT HAS BEEN RELEASED (IN REDACTED FORM)

My high octane speculation for the day is that these indicators may mean there are as yet unexplored avenues and connections in this network of Saudi Arabs, Dutch, Germans, and Swiss, that facilitated entrance into these flight schools. In short, that "global network" of Mr. Blair and Dr. Koryagana is as yet unnamed, but I suspect readers know what I think it may be.

Twelve Israelis Arrested By FBI, Sentenced for Conning & Bilking Elderly Victims Out of Their Life Savings

AVI AYACHE and YARON BAR, two leaders of an Israeli lottery fraud ring, were sentenced today to 13 years and 12 years in prison, respectively, on mail and wire fraud charges. All 12 members of the ring who were charged in this case have pleaded guilty. "Qualifiers" called the victims and falsely told the victims they had won a substantial cash prize, and asked them about their assets. They told the victims that to obtain the prize, they had to pay several thousands of dollars in fees and taxes. Victims who complied were typically contacted again by Shooters and induced to send additional funds, amounting to tens and sometimes hundreds of thousands of dollars. In reality, there was no lottery prize and the victims were ultimately bilked out of an estimated total of more than $8 million. The defendants even sent shipments of flowers and gift baskets to various victims in the United States in order to "congratulate" them on their purported lottery winnings.
