Taking Names for Israel

In a scene reminiscent of the movie The Godfather the US ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, told the world on December 20 that the US would be "taking names" of countries that voted in the UN to reject Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as capital of Israel. It’s all part of the pattern of condescending arrogance which is the leitmotif of Trump’s call to "make America great again." He and his fawning disciples are providing the answer to the question posed by GW Bush – "Why do they hate us?"

On December 8 Haley tweeted that Washington "will not be lectured to by countries that lack any credibility when it comes to treating both Israelis and Palestinians fairly" which was an insulting rejection of international reaction to Donald Trump’s declaration. She did not mention the unpalatable fact that the Security Council "has adopted a number of resolutions, dating back 50 years, aimed in part at preventing Israel from claiming sovereignty over all of the holy city."

Jared Kushner Belongs To Rothschild’s Doomsday Cult

Trump’s son-in-law and senior advisor Jared Kushner belongs to an elite doomsday cult that boasts the Rothschilds as members and is trying to foment a “prophesied” third world war.

Chabad Lubavitch is a Jewish supremacist cult that serve the Illuminati. Despite only having 200,000 elite followers, it has intimate ties to nearly every powerful government leader on earth.

Look, if Trump adopts a pro-war, neoconservative policy, targeting country after country for war, look no further than Jared Kushner.

Iran Slams US Threats against Those Resisting Its ‘Thuggish Demands’

“Trump regime exposes contempt for democracy through its threats against those who dare resist its thuggish demands at the UN—all while Trump insults Iran crudely as ‘dictatorship’. US version of democracy stops at rhetoric of ‘either with us or against us’,” Zarif said in a post on his official Twitter account.

It came after US President Donald Trump’s threats to cut aid to countries that vote against his move on Quds at the UN General Assembly.

Earlier this week, Trump threatened to discontinue financial aid to countries that vote in favor of a draft UN resolution against his decision to recognize Quds as Israel’s capital.

Despite ‘threats’, Pakistan’s support for Palestine remains unwavering, says Maleeha Lodhi

Pakistan’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Maleeha Lodhi on Thursday said that Pakistan’s support to the Palestinian people remains unwavering “despite the threats that we have received in recent days.”

Addressing at UNGA, Lodhi said that Pakistan co-sponsored this resolution and will vote in favour of this landmark resolution to reject the US decision. “Pakistan stands firmly behind the Palestinian people and their just cause”, she said.

She said that support to the Palestinian cause and defence of Al-Quds has been a pillar of Pakistan’s foreign policy. Our support remains unwavering despite the threats we have received in recent days.

“We find ourselves at one of the history’s turning points. The extraordinary developments of the past few weeks warrant an equally extraordinary response from us,” she said

Kushner Foundation Gives $342K to Chabad — Still Surprised About Jared and Ivanka’s Synagogue?

It might seem odd for a Modern Orthodox Jewish family to join a Chabad synagogue. But Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner are already quite invested in the ultra-Orthodox outreach movement – or to be more precise, their parents are.

A Haaretz examination has revealed that Charles and Seryl Kushner have been major benefactors of Chabad over the years. Between 2003 and 2013, their family foundation donated a total of $342,500 to various institutions and projects associated with the movement, their tax records show.

Chabad has benefited not only from Kushner’s side of the family. It turns out that President-elect Donald Trump has also contributed to the movement – even before his daughter, who converted to Judaism, was married. Altogether, the Donald J. Trump Foundation has donated $11,550 to three Chabad institutions.

Trump Pardons Racist, Criminal Jewish Fanatic

Tuesday we posted Michael Berg’s article, Ex-Chabad Member Exposes Trump Family Cult which demonstrated that Trump’s family (Kushners) belongs to Chabad, a racist, criminal Jewish supremacist doomsday cult. The very next day Trump commuted the 27-year prison sentence of Chabad kosher butcher, Rabbi Sholom Rabashkin, 57, a GOP donor. He had served only eight years.

In addition, in one of the nation’s largest illegal worker busts, federal authorities raided the plant and detained 389 illegal immigrants in 2008. ICE determined that at the time of their raid, two-thirds of the plant’s workers were undocumented. It turned out the company itself was cranking out false social security cards.

Palestinian factions call for third 'Friday of Rage' in continued protest against Trump

Palestinian political factions called upon Palestinians to take part in the third ‘Friday of Rage’ protests in rejection of the US President Donald Trump’s widely condemned policies in the region.

The mass protests expected on Friday are the third call by Palestinian factions for widespread protest since Trump announced his recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital earlier this month, and his plans to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Since the announcement, Palestinians have protested nearly every day against Trump and the Israeli occupation in the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and Gaza. Six Palestinians were killed by Israeli forces in protests , while hundreds more have been injured.

Putin, Erdogan discuss creation of Palestinian state

Russia's President Vladimir Putin and Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Friday they both supported creating a Palestinian state, the Kremlin said the day after the U.N. rejected the decision by Washington to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

In a phonecall, the two leaders "discussed the situation of Middle East peace talks in the context of the resolution adopted by the U.N. General Assembly on the status of Jerusalem," the Kremlin said in a statement.

They "confirmed the mutual disposition to continue to assist in resolving the Palestine-Israeli conflict on the basis of international norms and realisation of the right of the Palestinian people to create an independent state," it said.

US makes large contributions to UN, expects to be respected – Haley to UNGA

Haley’s threat of cutting aid did not stop 128 nations from voting in favor of the UNGA resolution calling for the US to reverse its recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Still, some may have been convinced by the US envoy’s arguments. Apart from the US and Israel, seven more nations said 'no' to the motion, while 35 chose to abstain.

The overall outcome of the vote showed "dignity and sovereignty are not for sale," said Turkey's foreign minister Mevlut Cavusoglu.

Iran said the vote meant a global "NO" to US intimidation.

"A resounding global NO to Trump regime's thuggish intimidation at UN," Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Twitter.

Last month members of Congress led by Minnesota’s Betty McCollum introduced House Bill 4391, the first in US history that calls for accountability and transparency for US aid to Israel.

Within a month of its introduction, 20 members of Congress have cosponsored a bill that focuses on Israeli violations of Palestinian children’s rights.

Anti-Israel protests in Berlin, by immigrants, dismay German officials

Protests against Israel, sparked by President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as its capital, are once again forcing Germany to weigh the value of free speech against the burden of its Nazi past.

Pro-Palestinian demonstrators have been burning Israeli flags in the center of Berlin while chanting anti-Semitic slogans threatening violence against Israelis. One protest Friday took place only 100 yards from the city’s somber Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, a reminder of Germany’s responsibility for the worst mass murder in history.

A few thousand protesters have taken part so far. Except for several arrests, German authorities have generally refrained from interfering, even as top officials said they were “ashamed” by “the evil face” of anti-Semitism on display.

Trump commutes sentence of kosher meatpacking executive

President Donald Trump on Wednesday commuted the sentence of an Iowa kosher meatpacking executive who had been sentenced to 27 years in prison for money laundering, marking the first time he's used the presidential power.

The decision to intervene on behalf of Sholom Rubashkin, who ran the Iowa headquarters of a family business that was the country's largest kosher meat-processing company, came at the urging of numerous members of Congress and a long list of high-ranking law enforcement officials, who argued the sentence was far too harsh for a first-time, nonviolent offender.

South Africa to downgrade diplomatic status in Israel

South Africa says it will downgrade its diplomatic status in Israel in response to the United States’ decision to recognize Jerusalem al-Quds as the Israeli regime’s “capital.”

The ruling African National Congress (ANC) Party announced the decision at a conference in Johannesburg late on Wednesday.

“The ANC’s National Conference, the highest decision making body of our organization, has unanimously resolved to immediately and unconditionally downgrade the South African Embassy in Israel to a liaison office,” the ruling party said in a statement.

The ANC said the resolution aimed to “give practical expression to the oppressed people of Palestine,” and “will send a clear message to Israel that there is a price to pay for its human rights abuses and violations of international law.”

Trump hints at cutting foreign aid over U.N. vote on Jerusalem

President Donald Trump on Wednesday suggested that the U.S. could pull foreign aid from nations that vote against it at the United Nations, a warning delivered ahead of a General Assembly vote expected to criticize the Trump administration’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

“For all of these nations that take our money and then they vote against us at the Security Council or they vote against us, potentially, at the Assembly, they take hundreds of millions of dollars and even billions of dollars and then they vote against us,” Trump said at a Cabinet meeting on Wednesday.

“Well, we’re watching those votes,” he continued. “Let them vote against us. We’ll save a lot. We don’t care. But this isn’t like it used to be where they could vote against you and then you pay them hundreds of millions of dollars and nobody knows what they’re doing.”

‘We'll save a lot’: Trump threatens to stop aid to UN members over Jerusalem vote

President Donald Trump has threatened to cut aid to UN member states who vote against US at the upcoming UN General Assembly on the issue of Washington’s Jerusalem move. He said the US will save “billions” in the process.

His threats come ahead of the rare emergency special session of the UNGA scheduled for Thursday. Arab and Muslim countries requested the meeting after the US vetoed a UN Security Council resolution to rescind Trump’s declaration of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. Trump went ahead with his controversial declaration earlier this month despite multiple warnings against doing so, drawing international condemnation and stirring protests from Muslims worldwide.

UN General Assembly holds emergency meeting on Jerusalem declaration

The UN General Assembly (UNGA) is holding a rare emergency meeting on the US decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. The meeting is taking place at the request of Arab and Muslim nations.

Speaking at the meeting, US envoy to the UN Nikki Haley said that whatever decision is made by the UNGA, it will not influence Washington’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Haley reminded UN members of the US’ generous contributions to the organization and said that the United States expects its will to be respected in return.

“When we make a generous contributions to the UN, we also have a legitimate expectation that our goodwill is recognized and respected,” Haley said, adding that the vote will be “remembered” by the US and “make a difference on how the Americans look at the UN.”

Israelis shoot boy in head, take revenge against his family

Israel has escalated its revenge against the extended family of Muhammad Tamimi, the boy who is lying in a coma after occupation forces shot him in the head last Friday.

Soldiers in the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh detained 21-year-old Nour Naji Tamimi from her home in a night raid.

Naji Tamimi posted on Facebook on Wednesday that “occupation gangs raided my house at dawn and arrested my daughter Nour, on accusations of attacking a soldier.”

Jerusalem crisis should point Palestinians to new path

Isolated, defiant and forced into casting a veto at the United Nations Security Council: The Trump administration’s brand of diplomacy-by-bluster is bulldozering on, irritating people and knocking over the furniture.

But despite US President Donald Trump’s Jerusalem proclamation managing to whip up almost unanimous global support for Palestinians, the official Palestinian response has so far been predictable and lackluster. Rather than seize an opportunity to change the dominant peace process narrative of “land-for-peace” into one focused on rights and justice, Palestinian officials have instead opted to issue empty threats.

Israeli Forces Kidnap 16-Year-Old Ahed Tamimi And Her Entire Family

In yet another example of the horrific nature of the Israeli occupation of Palestine, the Israeli government has now brutally arrested 16-year-old Ahed Tamimi for daring to slap an Israeli soldier who was attempting to kidnap her brother.

After the video of Ahed’s “assault” on the Israeli soldier was broadcast across Israeli media, a massive social media campaign developed calling for her arrest, demonstrating the sickness that is so pervasive in Israeli society as well as in the Israeli government. “Naftali Bennet,” Israeli Minister of Education even called for the sixteen year old to face life imprisonment...

U..S., Israel, Jerusalem, Palestine and the New Santa Claus Effect
***
You see, growing up during the Cold War as I did, the media narrative and group talk about Russia and their people went something like this. The Russians are Communists, amoral people, don’t believe in God, don’t value human life the way we do, their military and nuclear weapons are poised to preemptively destroy America because they hate our freedom, capitalism and everything we stand for. This was the ever-present drumbeat of the American media machine. This propaganda narrative, as I now know, was designed to keep Americans in fear and never to question the billions upon billions of hard earned taxpayers dollars going into our Nation’s military buildup and ever growing arsenal of nuclear weapons. We had to be superior in order to win if a war was to ever occur with Russia. And, according to the media, this was just around the corner and was just a matter of time. Are you beginning to hear a familiar drum beat?

'No moral failures': IDF finds no wrongdoing in death of disabled Palestinian as UN urges probe

The UN is calling for a probe into the killing of a wheelchair-bound Palestinian during a protest against Trump’s Jerusalem decision, despite the IDF stating that it found “no moral or professional failures” related to the death.

“The facts gathered so far by my staff in Gaza strongly suggest that the force used against Ibrahim Abu Thurayeh was excessive,” the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, said Tuesday.

At least four Palestinians were killed and more than 150 injured, as thousands took to the streets of the West Bank, Gaza and Jerusalem last Friday. Among those killed was 29-year-old Thurayeh, a disabled activist confined to a wheelchair after losing both of his legs, allegedly, in the Israeli attack on Gaza in 2008.

Dec 20 08:17

UN goes easy on Israel for killing disabled Palestinian

The United Nations human rights chief has joined the condemnation of Israel’s killing of a disabled Palestinian man in the occupied Gaza Strip.

But while Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein calls the killing of Ibrahim Abu Thurayya “incomprehensible” and a “truly shocking and wanton act,” his office stops short of calling for any real accountability from Israel.

It thus demonstrates a double standard in which Israel is treated more leniently by the UN than other perpetrators of human rights crimes.

Abu Thurayya, 29, lost both his legs in an Israeli airstrike in 2008. Last Friday he was participating in demonstrations in Gaza near the boundary fence with Israel in protest of the US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Abu Thurayya “was protesting around 15 metres from Gaza’s eastern fence when he was shot while sitting in his wheelchair,” the human rights group Al-Haq stated.

France pressuring Abbas to drop UN resolution to freeze settlements

The Israeli newspaper Haaretz, citing an unnamed senior Palestinian official, said Tuesday that the Palestinian Authority is leaning toward freezing its effort to secure an anti-settlement resolution through the UN Security Council.

According to senior Israeli and Palestinian officials, the French government was pressing the Palestinian Authority to freeze the effort on the grounds that it will fail and undermine French attempts to put together an international peace summit this summer.

"The opportunity to go to the Security Council will always be there and we want to give a chance to the French initiative because, in the end, this is an initiative that serves us and not one that hurts us," the Palestinian figure said.

UN Security Council to vote on outlawing Trump's Jerusalem decision

The UN Security Council is expected to vote Monday on a resolution confirming the international status of Jerusalem and outlawing any changes to it – which implies the recent US move to recognize it as the capital of Israel.

It does not specifically mention the US or its recent decision to officially recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, but it implies a call on Washington to withdraw it. The text also mentions “deep regret at recent decisions concerning the status of Jerusalem.”

Jerusalem in My Heart – Israel Shamir

The Palestinians do know and do remember, how they were thrown out of their homes, and how the Jews moved in.

Trump is not different from his predecessors. All American Presidents declared Jerusalem – the eternal united and indivisible capital of the Jewish state. Obama did it, and so did Bush. True, they said it while running for the office, and they avoided repeating the mantra while in the White House, but they never repudiated it, either.

Ninety out of a hundred US Senators approved of Trump’s statement. Ten abstained, probably being unable to support Trump for any reason at all. Still, it was a most-approved step of the President.

Despite efforts to revive her, Wafa reported, Zubeidat died shortly after. “The soldiers raided the village after midnight, causing panic and fear among residents, throwing stun grenades at homes,” Wafa reported, adding that “no reason was given for the raid.”

Nasrallah: Trump! We are determined to liberate Jerusalem and all of Palestine

Against the decision of Trump, the least degree of faith here would be that the Palestinian Authority, the Arab League and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation who will meet in Istanbul in two days decree the end of the peace process. The Arab peace initiative should no longer be on the table. They have to tell the Americans: “It’s over. There is nothing left on the table. If you cancel this decision, we will come back to discuss around the table.” Even at the political and tactical levels, it is a strong, influential and effective logic, though of course we do not believe for a moment in the efficiency or the legitimacy of the way of negotiations.

Imran Hossein: Part of the Torah has been forged to justify Israel's expansion

Someone rewrote the Torah to declare that the Holy Land extends from the River of Egypt (i.e., the Nile) to the River Euphrates. This is false! Nab? Ibrah?m (‘alaihi al-Sal?m) had to migrate from Babylon and travel a long distance in order to reach the Holy Land.

Yet Babylon was most certainly within the land falsely designated in the Torah as the Holy Land. Nab? M?sa (‘alaihi al-Sal?m) also died in Sinai without ever having entered the Holy Land. And so, Sinai is not a part of the Holy Land. Yet Sinai is most certainly within the land falsely designated in the Torah as the Holy Land.
