Europe is following Obama – washing its hands of Palestine and why

The conclusion I draw from everything I have learned from nearly half a century of engagement in various capacities with the conflict in and over Palestine that became Israel is that there are two main reasons for the refusal of the major Western powers to confront Zionism in order to provide the Palestinians with an acceptable amount of justice..

One is the influence (declining a little but still awesome) that the Zionist lobby in all of its manifestations has in the corridors of power together with unlimited funds to buy politicians.

The other is fear that if pushed further than they were prepared to go, Israel’s leaders would press a nuclear button or two and more if needed.

This fear is no doubt reinforced in the minds of those Western leaders who are aware of what Prime Minister Golda Meir once said to me in an interview for the BBC’s Panorama programme. As readers of my book and one or two of my blog posts over the years know, she said that in a doomsday situation “Israel would be prepared to take the region and the whole world down with it.”

Flashback: Justice Scalia Cites the Talmud In Supreme Court Ruling: An Exegesis by Hoffman

In a 5-4 decision released on June 8, 2009, the Supreme Court ruled for the first time that the Constitution can require an elected judge to step aside in a particular case based on campaign spending in state judicial races. The majority ruling in Caperton v. A. T. Massey Coal Co., No. 08-22, was written by Justice Anthony M. Kennedy. Joining Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. in dissent were Justices Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Samuel A. Alito Jr.
In his dissent Scalia wrote: "A Talmudic maxim instructs with respect to the Scripture: “Turn it over, and turn it over, for all is therein.” The Babylonian Talmud, Tractate Aboth, Ch. V, Mishnah 22 (I. Epstein ed. 1935). Divinely inspired text may contain the answers to all earthly questions, but the Due Process Clause most assuredly does not. The court today...

Criminal Offence? UK to ban Israeli West Bank goods boycotts

Britain’s Conservative government is to announce next week a law that would ban local councils, student unions and other public bodies form boycotting goods for political reasons. The rules are widely seen as meant to protect goods produced by Israeli companies in the occupied West Bank.

Hillary Clinton, With Little Notice, Vows to Embrace an Extremist Agenda on Israel

Former President Bill Clinton on Monday met in secret (no press allowed) with roughly 100 leaders of South Florida’s Jewish community, and, as the Times of Israel reports, “He vowed that, if elected, Hillary Clinton would make it one of her top priorities to strengthen the U.S.-Israel alliance.” He also “stressed the close bond that he and his wife have with the State of Israel.”

It may be tempting to dismiss this as standard, vapid Clintonian politicking: adeptly telling everyone what they want to hear and making them believe it. After all, is it even physically possible to “strengthen the U.S.-Israel alliance” beyond what it already entails: billions of dollars in American taxpayer money transferred every year, sophisticated weapons fed to Israel as it bombs its defenseless neighbors, blindly loyal diplomatic support and protection for everything it does?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please understand;a vote for Hillary Clinton is a vote for more serial genocide against the Palestinian people; for more brisk annexation of Palestinian housing in which Palestinians have lived for centuries in the West Bank and East Jerusalem;and more general violence in the Middle East against countries whose leadership is not to Israel's liking.

And that includes almost ALL of its neighbors in the region!!

WOW, Trump Throws Down The Gauntlet on 9/11: "Now that George Bush is campaigning for Jeb(!), is he fair game for questions about World Trade Center? Careful!"

Donald Trump gave this ominous warning to the Bush cabal a few days ago. This is absolutely great stuff. I have been very leery of Trump in the past, given his history of sucking up to Israel and support for some gun control, etc. But over time, with the increasingly fascinating developments and Trump's penchant for truth, I have studied this guy and everything he says very carefully. Anyone of Trump's stature who has the balls to call out Bush on 9/11 is OK in my book. I hereby endorse Donald J. Trump for President. :-)

"I want to run away from this madness. And I know that hundreds of thousands of Gazans want to leave as well. We are cold not only physically but also metaphorically. Actually; I’m not sure about the accuracy of my name Hope because I’m also hopeless. I sometimes ask why I wasn’t killed during one of the wars. If the heaven is the final abode, so it is the big reward for all the suffering that we have witnessed. If it is Hell, there is no big different from the hell of Gaza.

Israel rocketed military checkpoints in Syria

Location is targeted with three missiles, which have caused material damage - the report said the observatory.

It is also said that "does not know whether they were members of Hezbollah within the site or not."

It is specified that the attack occurred on the road leading to the province of Dara, but does not mention the extent of the damage.

Pro Asad military source denied the report, claiming that there was no Israeli military strikes inside Syria on Wednesday, but no official response.
Hezbollah TV station A-Manar also denied the report.

Israel has previously been accused of being rocketed targets in Syria, belonging to the Syrian army and Hezbollah, Assad ally.

- If the reports are true, then it was the second attack Israel since Russia launched an air campaign in the country where a civil war is raging - said the Israeli list haArec who actually calls the Reuters report.

In January 2016, police killed 113 people — at least one person was fatally gunned down by a cop every day that month. One particularly deadly day, January 27, saw ten people meet their fate, thanks to the police. On average, that is almost 4 people a day.

Trump: Israeli-Palestinian peace deal may be impossible

SUMTER, S.C. - Donald Trump, who has argued his experience negotiating tough real estate deals makes him best qualified to be US president, said on Wednesday it might be impossible to forge a lasting peace agreement between the Israelis and the Palestinians.

During a televised town hall session hosted by MSNBC in South Carolina, Trump, the front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination, said he believed getting a deal done would be "very, very tough."

The remarks were notable not only because Trump rarely discusses Israel or the Mideast peace process on the campaign trail, but also because they seemed to show a shift in Trump's views on the feasibility of a deal.>>>

Trump won’t take sides on Israel and the Palestinians

JTA: Donald Trump said he would remain neutral when it comes to Israel and the Palestinians, but cited Palestinian incitement as a factor in making the conflict intractable.

“You know, you have both sides, really, but one side in particular growing up learning that these are the worst people these people are the worst people, etc. etc.,” he said. “I was with a very prominent Israeli the other day, he says it’s impossible because the other side has been trained from the time they’re children to hate Jewish people.”
***
“If I win, I don’t want to be in a position where I’m saying to you, and the other side now says, ‘We don’t want Trump involved, we don’t want,’ let me sort of be a neutral guy,” Trump said. “I don’t want to say whose fault is it, I don’t think it helps.”

Greatest Threat to Free Speech in the West: Criminalizing Activism Against Israeli Occupation

The U.K. GOVERNMENT today announced that it is now illegal for “local [city] councils, public bodies, and even some university student unions … to refuse to buy goods and services from companies involved in the arms trade, fossil fuels, tobacco products, or Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank.” Thus, any entities that support or participate in the global boycott of Israeli settlements will face “severe penalties” under the criminal law.

This may sound like an extreme infringement of free speech and political activism — and, of course, it is — but it is far from unusual in the West. The opposite is now true. There is a very coordinated and well-financed campaign led by Israel and its supporters literally to criminalize political activism against Israeli occupation, based on the particular fear that the worldwide campaign of Boycott, Sanctions, and Divestment, or BDS — modeled after the 1980s campaign that brought down the Israel-allied apartheid regime in South Africa — is succeeding.

The Obama administration enables anti-Semitism at the United Nations

The United Nations itself promotes anti-Israel rhetoric and efforts to treat the only Jewish state differently from all other members. With U.S. participation, it interceded to investigate the Gaza flotilla incident, a denigration of Israel’s sovereignty and ability to investigate and remedy its own conduct. As a body, the U.N. again and again takes up anti-Israel resolutions. The U.N. tolerates, and by its silence condones, anti-Semitism. Just one example sums up the body’s attitude:

Israel's Plan B for Syria Is to Break It Up

If there's one thing that Israel likes it's Arabs fighting Arabs.
…Israeli Defence Minister Moshe Yaalon said he was “very pessimistic” about the truce’s prospects. “Unfortunately we are going to face chronic instability for a very, very long period of time,” he said. “And part of any grand strategy is to avoid the past, saying we are going to unify Syria. We know how to make an omelette from an egg. I don’t know how to make an egg from an omelette.” Referring to some of the warring sects, Yaalon added: “We should realise that we are going to see enclaves?—?‘Alawistan’, ‘Syrian Kurdistan’, ‘Syrian Druzistan’. They might cooperate or fight each other.” Ram Ben-Barak, director-general of Israel’s Intelligence Ministry, described partition as “the only possible solution”.

28 Palestinians Shot as Israeli Troops Raid Refugee Camp

They won’t say why, but the Israeli military invaded a West Bank refugee camp today, fairly quickly attacking a bunch of Palestinian protesters, in an incident that left 28 protesters shot, and one Israeli soldier wounded from being hit with a rock.

Officials refused to comment on the raid itself, but said they ordered the “rioters” to disperse and the military shot the main “instigators” when they continued to demonstrate. They also claimed the Palestinians were throwing explosives, though AFP reports who were present did not witness any such thing.

Palestinian sources say they believe the Israeli troops were there to arrest a member of the Fatah Party, but that he managed to escape. The camp is home to about 15,000 Palestinian refugees. After about three hours, the troops left, mostly through a nearby settlement.

The arson attack by extremist Israeli settlers against the Dawabsha family that killed Baraa’s aunt Riham, uncle, Sa’ad, and their 18-month old baby Ali, left the rural village of Duma in shock. Only Ahmad – Sa’ad and Riham’s four-year-old son – survived the attack.

While the deadly arson attack was over half a year ago, residents in Duma say they must remain vigilant, worried that another similar attack may be just around the corner. The overwhelming feeling in the community is that the Israeli government has done nothing to deter further attacks against the vulnerable rural village.

Serbian Parliament Gives Jews $1 Million Per Year For “Holocaust” Restitution

According to a recent report published by The Jewish Daily Forward, Serbia’s parliament passed a bill giving the organized Jewish community in the Balkan state just over $1 million per year for the next 25 years for property allegedly seized from Jews during and after WWII. Incredibly, the restitution payments are for properties allegedly seized who do not even have heirs, and the money will simply go to the organized Jewish community occupying Serbia.

Could it be any more obvious how big of a racket the fake “Holocaust” narrative is? The organized international Jewish community is literally raking in billions of dollars every single year by promoting the fake “Holocaust” story, and the vast majority of this money comes directly from taxpayers in the United States and Europe. What an absolute outrage.

She added: “When the details of the incident were clarified and no suspicion at all of criminal activity was raised, the detainees were released immediately by the investigating officer without any other steps taken in the matter.”

IDC’s president Toufic Baaklini tried to calm the crowd, which appeared to have a divided reaction to Cruz’s words, but by that point Cruz had had enough. “I am saddened to see some here, not everyone, but some here are so consumed with hate,” he said (to which someone in the audience shouted, “We are not consumed with hate, no, you are consumed with hate”).“If you will not stand with Israel and Jews, then I will not stand with you,” Cruz said. “Thank you and God bless you.”

Some examples -- the Holohoaxers themselves admit that:
Forensic tests on the "gas chambers" do not reveal any trace of "gas" or "poison".
Millions of corpses or remains were never discovered.
There is no German documentation of any mass killings.
Tales of Jews being made into bars of soap and lamp shades were invented.
Zyklon B was a pesticide developed to kill typhus-lice, not people.
The Holocaust story relies heavily upon Soviet reports.
Soccer games and other forms of entertainment took place in the camps.

Court awards damages to worker humiliated by Israeli Prime Minister's wife

A court in Jerusalem has found that the wife of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu humiliated and degraded a government caretaker in her home and has awarded the worker 80,000 shekels, or about $20,500, for emotional distress.

"Much evidence was brought before the court that pointed to the fact that there were harmful conditions of work because of the behavior of Mrs. Netanyahu and her relations to the workers," the judgment said. "These included exaggerated demands, degradation, humiliation and expression of outrage. The workers were also called upon to work many, extraordinary hours. Because of that the turnover of workers in the (house of the) PM was very high and there was always a chronic shortage of manpower. The need for specialized services does not justify harmful employment."

Naomi Landau, a lawyer for Naftali, called the decision historic.

Israel’s “excessive force” kills two more children

Congress encouraging US states to “combat BDS”

Earlier this week, Senators Mark Kirk (R-IL) and Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Representatives Robert Dold (R-IL) and Juan Vargas (D-CA) introduced the “Combating BDS Act of 2016” (S.2531 and H.R.4514), bills which seek to authorize state and local governments to divest assets from and prohibit investment in any entity that “engages in a commerce or investment-related boycott, divestment or sanctions activity targeting Israel.”

Illinois signed into law a bill last year requiring the state to divest from foreign companies that support boycott, divestment or sanctions (BDS).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't know about you, but I am fed up with looking around at the hunger, homelessness, joblessness, and decayed infrastructure of our nation while seeing government constantly whining about how they must take care of Israel.

I think it is time to take all the friends of Israel in government, put them on a cargo ship, and send them to this land they clearly love so much more than their own!

No government can serve two masters, and a government that serves Israel cannot, does not, and will not serve the American people. A friend of Israel is no friend of America. In these dark times America needs leaders who will put America first, second, and third!

Israel has five modified Dolphin submarines

The Dolphin 2-class are the largest submarines to have been built in Germany since World War II. The Dolphin class boats are the most expensive single vehicles in the Israel Defense Forces. The Dolphin-class replaced the aging Gal-class submarines, which had served in the Israeli navy since the late 1970s. Each Dolphin-class submarine is capable of carrying a combined total of up to 16 torpedoes and SLCMs.
The cruise missiles have a range of at least 1,500 km (930 mi) and are widely believed to be equipped with a 200-kilogram (440 lb) nuclear warhead containing up to 6 kilograms (13 lb) of plutonium.

Israel's International Conspiracy

It is a global phenomenon. Wherever one goes - Western Europe, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United States - there is a well-organized and funded lobby ready, willing and able to go to war to protect Israel ... The Israeli Foreign Ministry has a corps of paid "volunteers" who monitor websites worldwide and take remedial action, and there is a similar group working out of the Prime Minister's office. That is why any negative story appearing in the U.S. about Israel is immediately inundated with pro-Israel comments, many of which make exactly the same coordinated points while exhibiting the same somewhat less than perfect English ... The sayanim, local Jews in their countries of residence, are essential to this process, having been alerted by emails from the Israeli Foreign Ministry about what to do and say.

9/11: A Wilderness of Mirrors and the Prince of Darkness

On September 11, 2001 we Americans witnessed the calculated use of terror to traumatize our nation in order to impose a neoconservative political agenda that has been a disaster for the whole world, especially the Mideast. In 2016, all of this is clear, or should be with the benefit of 20/20 hindsight. But any Americans who read the neoconservative policy papers in the 1990s, understood the extreme ideas that were being expressed, saw the future, and tried to warn the rest of us about what was coming, were no doubt either dismissed as kooks or smeared as anti-semitic.

RUSSIAN PM WARNS US, SAUDIS AGAINST STARTING ‘PERMANENT WAR’ WITH GROUND INTERVENTION IN SYRIA

Russian PM Dmitry Medvedev told German media that sending foreign troops into Syria could unleash “yet another war on Earth.” The warning follows increasingly aggressive statements made by Saudi Arabia and Turkey amid Bashar Assad’s gains in Aleppo.

“All sides must be compelled to sit at the negotiating table, instead of unleashing yet another war on Earth,” Medvedev told Germany’s Handelsblatt newspaper. “Any kinds of land operations, as a rule, lead to a permanent war. Look at what’s happened in Afghanistan and a number of other countries. I am not even going to bring up poor Libya.”

The PM was commenting on recent statements from Saudi Arabia claiming that it was ready to send ground troops to Syria, should Washington lead the way.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The cease-fire which has been announced is both fragile, and tenuous enough to be broken at any second, particularly by those with a vested interest in regime change in Syria.

Russia has played this perfectly, and appears definitely to be the adult at the table in these negotiations.

The "wild cards" right now are Turkey, various rebel groups, Saudi Arabia, and Israel. I hope the leadership in these countries will cool their jets, let the cease-fire take place, and let a political settlement in Syria play out, if this is at all humanly possible right now.

Because a war with Russia over the future of Syria is a really, really bad idea; and particularly so for the US government and military, because they do not have the troop strength, the manufacturing, the weaponry, or the money to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia.

Nugent used a photo of a number of Jewish gun control supporters, where each individual photo was overlaid with an Israeli flag, with anti-Israeli or anti- Jewish conspiracy claims posted with some of the photos.

Zionist and Nazi Moral Disengagement

Zionist values and the hasbara machine dread empathy. Empathy engages with suffering and survivors of Nazi atrocities and their descendants have the privileged capacity to realise there is no difference between suffering under the Nazi or the zionist jackboot – both of which made and make strides because the machinations of moral disengagement duped the German people back then, just as the Jewish people are duped today along with British, Canadian, American, European, Australian citizens whose governments grant impunity to the zionist scourge in Palestine.

New Bipartisan Congressional Bill Supports States Fighting Boycotts of Israel

A new bill introduced in Congress Wednesday supports the rights of U.S. states to cut ties with companies that are engaged in the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Economic harm or the threat of economic harm as a tool to force someone to change their political views meets the legal definition of terrorism under the USAPATRIOT act.

Which means Congress is a terrorist organization, along with violating the First Amendment right to protest.

To my Fellow Israelis: We Can Stop This

Let me put it out there, clearly and directly:

We have been acting like animals, with barbarism of a degree which indeed could be, and should be, and has been, compared to those whom we love to hate – the Nazis – whose cruelty is supposed to exonerate ours. As Golda Meir told MK Shulamit Aloni: “After the Holocaust, Jews are allowed to do anything.” NO. Damn well not. We’ve used this excuse, with those words or others, together with a systematic cover-up of our own cruelties, since the start. And because we have largely succumbed to our own propaganda in this, we have failed to perceive the historical trace, which, if followed honestly, will show us that we are essentially AT THE SAME PLACE as before – still subjugating, still massacring, still torturing.

All of that outrage and personal ridicule is pro forma for an Israeli government that reflexively smears and denigrates any and all critics, but the more interesting epilogue was the unanticipated discovery by the Swedish and international media that Wallstrom has not been paying the full rent on the subsidized government apartment that she occupies. The revelation follows a familiar pattern, where critics of Israel suddenly find themselves being discredited for something completely unrelated to the Middle East.

Las Vegas newspaper staff feels casino giant Sheldon Adelson's tightening grip

When casino mogul Sheldon Adelson quietly bought Nevada's largest newspaper, reporters made it their mission to break the story of their new owner.

Newly energized after years of turnover and turmoil, the news staff at the Las Vegas Review-Journal furiously reported on the sale and — in a front-page editorial — promised readers that they would stand sentry to make sure the paper's stories were fair, balanced and stripped of any possible influence from Adelson's political and business connections.

But that full-tilt burst of self-reporting has now slowed amid a heavier hand from Adelson's appointed leadership, and some suggest, so has the vow of being transparent.

Note: President Harry Truman quote "The Jews, I find are very, very selfish. They care not how many Estonians, Latvians, Finns, Poles, Yugoslavs or Greeks get murdered or mistreated as D[isplaced] P[ersons] as long as the Jews get special treatment.

Silencing Critics of Israel

Israel doesn't accept criticism. In fact, whether from friend or foe, even mild criticism is viewed as an existential threat, prompting Israeli officials to unleash a torrent of abuse in an effort to silence and/or punish critics. And given new initiatives being rolled out in Israel and here is the US by Congress and some state legislatures, this effort to silence critics is endangering free speech and the search for peace.

This worrisome tendency was on display in recent weeks, as Israelis reacted with striking vehemence to remarks by United Nations Secretary General, Ban Ki Moon, and US Ambassador Daniel Shapiro.

American Lawmakers Must Pledge to Support Israel or Risk Funding, Says Former US Member of Congress

Former US lawmaker Cynthia McKinney says every candidate for Congress must pledge to support Israel's military superiority in the region and continued large-scale US funding for the Zionist state, or risk losing the ability to raise funds for election campaigns. "If you don't sign the pledge, you don't get money," she says in this in this interview with Marzieh Hashemi, an American-born journalist who lives in Iran. "You make a commitment that you would vote to support the military superiority of Israel, that the economic assistance that Israel wants, that you would vote to provide that," she adds. If a candidate does not sign the pledge or perform accordingly, "then you do not get money to run your campaign," McKinney says.

It is difficult to imagine what the next level might actually be in America's already servile deference to Israeli interests so she should perhaps be careful regarding what she commits herself to do ... [Sheldon] Adelson is the Republican version of Saban.

Monsanto Exposed as Source for White Phosphorus Used in Gaza Massacre

Monsanto has earned the dubious reputation of being one of the most hated companies in the world. Its grand proclamations of working to feed the world and help the environment have been exposed for a sham...

The chemical manufacturing side of Monsanto goes back a long way, most notably to Vietnam where Agent Orange was used to decimate vast swaths of tropical rainforest and poison countless Vietnamese civilians and soldiers, including American. The popular 2-4, D herbicide used today was an ingredient in Agent Orange.
