Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize!

If you’ve not heard the exciting news already, the Palestinian-led Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize!

BDS is rooted in a tradition of grassroots resistance to apartheid. Since Palestinian civil society organisations made the call for BDS in 2005, millions of people around the world have answered that call by delivering incredible and successful campaigns in their communities, on their campuses and alongside policy-makers.

In partnership with Jewish Voice for Peace, we’ve launched a petition urging the Nobel Committee to grant the Peace Prize to the BDS movement. The Nobel Committee will publish a shortlist of nominees before the end of September. Let’s make sure the BDS movement is on that list.

The Washington Post: Nikki Haley Steals The Show

The American Israel Public Affairs Committee policy conference crowd hadn’t had something or someone unabashedly to cheer for — until Monday evening. Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, was greeted as a rock star and repeatedly brought the crowd to its feet as she recounted her record at the U.N. “When I come to AIPAC, I am with friends,” she started off.>>>

FLASHBACK - ISRAELI GROUP ASKS US GOVERNMENT TO CENSOR AND INVESTIGATE AMERICANS WHO CRITICIZE ISRAEL

Yes, you read the title correctly, the JIDF are now asking the US government to censor and investigate people who criticize Israel online. This should be a wake up call to anyone who reads this post! The country wanted “change” when they overwhelmingly elected Obama. People expected to see a roll back of the civil rights intrusions that Bush so happily implemented using the Politics of “fear” to establish a United States of Big Brother America. Israel was a big part of creating these “Politics of Fear” that the world is now hopefully waking up from. These politics can be very simply stated in one sentence really; “Muslims=BAD Israel/USA=GOOD” and the public need not know anything other than that, trust your Government, they know best how to take care of you lowly peons.

Congressmen call for ‘foreign agent’ tag for Al Jazeera as it ‘digs into pro-Israel lobby’

***
The letter, signed by Ted Cruz, Josh Gottheimer, Lee Zeldin and others, claims Al Jazeera’s coverage also favors State Department-designated terrorist organizations, including Hamas, Hezbollah and Palestinian Islamic Jihad, as well as Al-Nusra Front. The Americans “deserve to know whether the information and news media they consume is impartial, or if it is deceptive propaganda pushed by foreign nations,” it urges.

The Only Jewish Ghetto in the Middle East

AlJazeera reported yesterday that the Israeli parliament has passed a law that allows the Minister of Interior to revoke the residency rights of any Palestinian in Jerusalem on grounds of a "breach of loyalty" to Israel.

Under the new measure, Israel's Interior Minister, Aryeh Deri, leader of the ultra-Orthodox political party Shas and a convicted criminal , has the authority to revoke the residency documents of any Palestinian whom he deems a “threat.”

It doesn’t take a genius to grasp that this law is racially oriented: it only applies to non-Jews. This type of law follows from the fact that Israel defines itself as the ‘The Jewish State,’ and operates as a tyrannical Jewish shtetl in which the Palestinians are Goyim du jour --0n a daily basis they are confronted by the most extreme forms of Jewish exceptionalism (choseness).

Conway Hall, UK "Home of Free Speech" Bans Free Speech

I am a fairly regular attendee of meetings run by a group in London called "KeepTalking". These meetings usually have a guest speaker who will address some contentious political issue, from the origins of WW1 to False-Flag terror to Gilad Atzmon speaking about his latest book.

Conway Hall has banned our group from using its premises, cancelling a string of bookings for six talks that should have started last Monday evening (05/03/18) with a critical analysis of the inaugural lecture by Professor Colin Bailey, Principal of St. Mary's University of London, on the collapse of WTC7 on 9/11 due to fires.

(Only) Because it is relevant to this article, it needs to be stated that our group has never publicly debated issues related to 'The Holocaust'.

Most members of the group are the remnants of the old London 9/11 Truth group.

Al Jazeera rejects 'baseless' calls for network to register as foreign agent in U.S.

The news network Al Jazeera on Thursday dismissed calls from members of Congress for it to register as a foreign agent under U.S. law.

In a statement, the Qatar-based broadcasting giant said the drive to bring its operations under the regulation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act amounts to an assault on press freedom.

"It is shocking to hear calls being made by a number of US lawmakers to register Al Jazeera as a foreign agent," the network said in its first public reaction since 18 House members and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) sent a letter Tuesday urging the Justice Department to investigate Al Jazeera's compliance with the eight-decade-old law governing lobbying and propaganda efforts in the U.S. by foreign governments and foreign political parties.

Marines arrive in Israel

Nearly 2,500 Marines landed in Israel on Tuesday as part of a biennial military exercise known as Juniper Cobra.

The Marines, deployed with the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit aboard the amphibious assault ship Iwo Jima, will train with Israeli Defense Forces, as the IDF carries out a series of ballistic missile drills. However, Marines will not directly participate in the missile drills, according to a command release.

“Our focus during Juniper Cobra 18 will be to hone our warfighting skills and ensure we are ready to react to any contingency we might face in U.S. 6th Fleet,” Col. Farrell J. Sullivan, the 26th MEU commanding officer, said in a command release.

New billboard campaign raises awareness about child prisoners held by Israel

Palestine Advocacy Project’s latest billboard ad campaign intends to raise awareness about Ahed Tamimi, the 17-year-old Palestinian activist who now faces up to 10 years in Israel’s military prison over an altercation with Israeli soldiers. Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have called for Ahed’s immediate release.

On December 19 at 3AM, the Israeli military raided and ransacked Ahed’s home, arresting her along with her mother and cousin, and charged Ahed with 12 criminal counts, including assault and incitement.

During a protest, Ahed’s 14-year-old cousin was shot in the head at close range by an Israeli soldier. Israeli soldiers then invaded the Tamimi family’s home and threatened the entire family.

Ahed demanded the soldiers leave . After they refused, the unarmed Ahed slapped one of the heavily armed soldiers. It is clear from a video that later went viral, Ahed posed no actual threat to these soldiers.

How Israel and its partisans work to censor the Internet

Numerous well funded, organized projects by and for Israel work to flood social media with pro-Israel propaganda, while blocking facts Israel dislikes.

In addition to their opposition, Ben Wizner, director of the ACLU Speech, Privacy, and Technology Project stated that “the revised bill continues to penalize participants in political boycotts in violation of the First Amendment.” The ACLU also stated that should the bill pass, they would challenge the bill in the U.S. Supreme Court.

Israeli PM Calls US Envoy to UN 'Hurricane Haley'

Netanyahu stated that during the last few days of his visit to the US he met with President Donald Trump, leaders of the Senate, Congress, business leaders, and also with the US ambassador to the UN.

During his speech, Netanyahu praised the support of Nikki Haley, which, he explained, she provides to Israel in the international organization.

"We call her 'hurricane Haley.' She does a wonderful job for the sake of truth and to protect Israel in the UN," the Israeli prime minister stated.

Israeli lawfare “backfires” in New Zealand

More than 100 activists gathered on 31 January at the Federal building in Oakland, California, to demonstrate in solidarity with Palestinian teenager Ahed Tamimi, who turned 17 in Israeli military detention that same day.

Protesters connected Israel’s military detention of Palestinian children to the system of youth imprisonment in the US.

“None of them should be in prison – we say no more cages,” a speaker said. “Free Ahed and all political prisoners.”

Tamimi was detained during a night raid in the occupied West Bank village of Nabi Saleh two months ago. She was arrested after video circulated showing her and a cousin slapping and shoving two heavily armed Israeli soldiers following an incident in which a soldier had shot in the head and seriously injured their 15-year-old relative Muhammad Tamimi.

German neo-Nazi party in EU parliament says it is 'on the side of Iran'

Germany's largest neo-Nazi party NPD declared at a European parliament debate last month in Strasbourg that his party fully supports the Islamic Republic of Iran and wants all sanctions lifted on the regime in Tehran. "Where are the sanctions against other states that violate human rights and commit war crimes: the United States of America, Saudi Arabia, Israel?. It is time to lift all sanctions against Tehran, and give Iran another chance!," said the neo-Nazi MEP Udo Voigt, who was elected to the European Parliament in 2014. The 65-year-old Vogit, who lives in Berlin, is a member of the European Parliament Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs.
Note: Wonder why Israel calls them neo-nazi? Name calling I guess.

Schumer Denounced for 'Absolutely Disgusting' AIPAC Speech

"Bigoted," "outrageous," and "disgusting" were just a handful of the many adjectives critics used to denounce Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer's (D-N.Y.) speech this week before the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), which attributed ongoing Middle East conflict not to Israel's decades of brutal U.S.-backed occupation of Palestinian territories, but to Palestinians' failure to "believe in the Torah."

Wars for Israel Drive Mass Immigration into Europe

An expose of Israel's role in destabilising the Middle East. Israel not only manipulated the British and American governments in the lead up to the Iraq war but they have also funded and supported ISIS in order to destabilise the Syrian regime. Whilst the destabilisation of the Middle East has secured Israel's position as the dominant force in the region, it has also created a flood of refugees that pour into Europe and threaten the very existence of the European people.

Thousands of US troops take part in war games with Israeli soldiers as they simulate an attack on the country by Iran

Thousands of US troops are taking part in war games with Israeli soldiers in a simulation of an attack on the country by Iran.

US and Israeli commanders overseeing the major joint air defence exercise spoke Thursday of preparing for evolving threats in the Middle East during the drill.

The Juniper Cobra exercise, held every two years since 2001, comes as Israel is increasingly concerned by what it says is a growing Iranian military presence in neighbouring Syria and Lebanon.

It runs from March 4 to March 15 this year and involves more than 2,500 US troops and 2,000 Israeli Aerial Defense troops.

12 Standing Ovations for Nikki Haley at AIPAC’s UN Hatefest

Here’s something US envoy to the UN Nikki Haley and the 18,000 pro-Israel Jews who packed the American Israel Public Affairs Committee conference in Washington, DC on Monday: they loathe the United Nations – and they love Israel.

In her 20-minute speech Monday, Haley was interrupted by loving hecklers who shouted, “We love you, Nikki” (“I love you, too,” she responded, on the record). And she received twelve, count them on the video, twelve standing ovations.

We think if ambassador Haley were to leap into her audience, she’d be crowd-surfing all the way to the lobby.

‘Top secret’ details of Israeli military systems and tactics briefly leaked online

An official document revealing two highly classified Israeli military systems, which had never been publicly mentioned before, was reportedly leaked in what the IDF describes as a “serious information security error.”
The leaked Israel Defense Ministry paper was signed by Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman and disclosed classified information concerning the military capabilities and operational methods of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), Haaretz reported.

According to the news outlet, which could not disclose any names or details due to a potential violation of the Israeli military censorship regulations, at least two sections of the document mentioned top secret mechanisms or systems, the existence of which had never been mentioned by the IDF.

Billionaire Sheldon Adelson Aiding Zionist Group’s Push to Oust McMaster

US National Security Adviser HR McMaster is reportedly down to his last few weeks in the White House, which, perhaps coincidentally, aligns with a long-standing effort by the oldest Zionist organization in the country to seek McMaster’s ouster.

"General McMaster should not maintain a position where he can continue to undermine President Trump's policies on Iran, Israel and the fight against ‘radical Islamic terrorism' — a term that General McMaster believes should not even be used," the Zionist Organization of America said in a statement last fall.

The ZOA urged "Trump to remove General McMaster from his current position and reassign him to another position," the statement reads.

The Mint Press News' Whitney Webb reported March 6 that the organization's "efforts to axe McMaster as national security adviser gained considerable momentum after securing the support of Zionist billionaire donor Sheldon Adelson."

U.S. Lawmakers Seek to Criminally Outlaw Support for Boycott Campaign Against Israel

THE CRIMINALIZATION OF political speech and activism against Israel has become one of the gravest threats to free speech in the West. In France, activists have been arrested and prosecuted for wearing T-shirts advocating a boycott of Israel. The U.K. has enacted a series of measures designed to outlaw such activism. In the U.S., governors compete with one another over who can implement the most extreme regulations to bar businesses from participating in any boycotts aimed even at Israeli settlements, which the world regards as illegal. On U.S. campuses, punishment of pro-Palestinian students for expressing criticisms of Israel is so commonplace that the Center for Constitutional Rights refers to it as “the Palestine Exception” to free speech.

Israel passes law to strip residency of Jerusalem's Palestinians

The Israeli parliament has passed a law that allows the minister of interior to revoke the residency rights of any Palestinian in Jerusalem on grounds of a "breach of loyalty" to Israel.

The bill, ratified on Wednesday, will also apply in cases where residency status was obtained on the basis of false information, and in cases where "an individual committed a criminal act" in the view of the interior ministry.

Under the new measure, Israel's Interior Minister Aryeh Deri, leader of the ultra-Orthodox political party Shas, will be able to strip the residency documents of any Palestinian whom he deems a threat.

Hanan Ashrawi, a senior member of the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO), described the law as "an extremely racist piece of legislation.

AS DEMOCRATS SHIFT LEFT ON PALESTINE, 2020 CONTENDER KAMALA HARRIS GIVES OFF-THE-RECORD ADDRESS TO AIPAC

Kamala Harris gave an off-the-record speech at the annual conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, or AIPAC, on Monday. Her speech, which emphasized the need for a strong relationship between the United States and Israel, came amid a gradual leftward shift on Israel among some members of the Democratic Party.

Democratic lawmakers are increasingly sympathetic to the plight of Palestinians; while not anti-Israel, more and more rank-and-file party members believe the U.S. should be more mindful of Israeli human rights violations. AIPAC is a powerful, pro-Israel lobbying force and has made opposition to former President Barack Obama’s Iran deal a key priority. It is also currently supporting legislation to make some support for the Palestinian-led Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement — which seeks to hold Israel accountable for violations of international law — a felony.

Watch: Netanyahu Gives Paratroopers Red Beret to Rep. Steve Scalise

On Tuesday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave Congressman Steve Scalise (R-LA 1st District) an IDF Paratrooper’s red beret, in appreciation of his support for Israel.

On June 14, 2017, Scalise was shot at a practice session for the congressional baseball team in Virginia, and was taken to the hospital in critical condition. On September 28, 2017, he returned to the House.

Scalise told the AIPAC conference on Tuesday: “…after I was shot, on the day I was shot we get a call from Prime Minister Netanyahu. Now, I was out of it for three days. I didn’t come to after I had surgeries, fighting for my life, infections, and finally by day three I woke up. And my wife was there. My family was there. They started sharing some of the stories of the people that were praying all around the world. And one of the things that stood out, they said, Prime Minister Netanyahu called for you.

Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer took the prize by slinging mud at Palestinians and Arabs as the reason there is no end to the conflict. Schumer said the problem is that the Palestinians don’t believe in the Jewish Torah:

Arizona university forces speakers to sign pledge they don’t boycott Israel

A professor has filed a lawsuit against Arizona State University and the state’s attorney general over a gross violation of free speech rights.

It is the second legal challenge to Arizona’s 2016 law against supporters of the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) campaign for Palestinian rights.

The Muslim Students Association at Arizona State University had invited American Muslims for Palestine chair, University of California at Berkeley lecturer Hatem Bazian, to speak about Palestine and the BDS campaign during an event on campus next month.

In order to participate, Bazian and other members of his group who had been invited were asked to sign the university’s speakers agreement – usually a boilerplate legal document outlining the terms of an event.

But Arizona State University’s agreement includes a clause that speakers must certify they are not engaged with the BDS movement.

Israel’s systematic violence against Palestinian women

Crucial to Israeli colonialism is an attempt at the destruction of Palestinian society. This is part of a bid to secure demographic majority over non-Jewish people across all of historic Palestine and maximal control over the territory and its resources.

Pursuing these goals necessarily involves hindering Palestinians’ ability to raise their next generation and to sustain, educate and care for themselves and each other.

The institutionalized destruction of Palestinian women’s lives has thus been an essential feature of the Israeli project. And as the world celebrates International Women’s Day, and in a time of the #MeToo movement, it is important to remember how Israel has systematically carried out violence against Palestinian women, undercut their healthcare, and undermined their socio-economic conditions.

In this regard, Israeli settler-colonialism can be seen as intrinsically anti-feminist and a form of gendered violence.

This is a subsea cable system that will connect the Israeli electricity grid to Europe via Greece and Cyprus.

Israeli Prime Minister Says May Call Early General Elections

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said that he may call snap general elections but still hoped for his cabinet to work until the end of its term in November 2019.

The Israeli ruling coalition has been in crisis due to the demand of the ultra-Orthodox United Torah Judaism political alliance to exempt its voters from conscription, which was opposed by Netanyahu's secularist allies.

"What I want is to be able to complete the term of this government, which is about November ’19… If the coalition agrees, that’s what we’ll do. If not, we’ll go to elections," Netanyahu said on Wednesday as quoted by The Times of Israel newspaper.

This weekend, 18,000 Americans from all over the country are coming to Washington to participate in the annual American Israel Public Affairs Committee Policy Conference.

Other Jewish "pro-Israel" organizations are niche affairs, representing particular constituencies on the left or right ... How can America's representatives declare that any other country's fight - even one as close to us as Israel is - is our fight, its cause our cause, its values our values? It's precisely this kind of overidentification that George Washington warned against in his 1796 farewell address ... It is time to require AIPAC to register as what it is: a foreign agent.

Eighteen thousand supporters have gathered at the city's Convention Center ...

Israel’s Deliberate and Carefully Planned Annexation of Palestine

It is hard to get too excited over small steps toward annexation, such as a law that moves a university from the jurisdiction of one council of higher education to another. The international community will not raise a storm. The UN Security Council will not hold an emergency session. The EU will not threaten sanctions. Yet this is precisely what the annexation of Palestine will look like.

The Knesset on Monday passed a law that places Israeli universities in the occupied Palestinian territories under the aegis of the Israeli Council for Higher Education, a civilian body created by Israeli law to oversee universities and colleges in Israel. Settlement colleges and universities were previous supervised by the Council for Higher Education in Judea and Samaria, a military body created specifically because the civilian council’s jurisdiction did not extend beyond the State of Israel’s borders.

How 'Russiagate' Helps the Israel Lobby

Perhaps the most high-profile indictment of someone in Trump’s inner circle, the president’s first national security adviser Michael Flynn, actually shows that rather than colluding with Russia, senior members of Trump’s team were really working with Israel to advance its agenda.

And while no one has pinpointed evidence of Trump auctioning off his foreign policy to any Russian oligarchs, he has definitely tailored his policy toward Israel to the demands of casino billionaire Sheldon Adelson, his biggest campaign donor.

Adelson’s immediate priority was securing US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and moving the American embassy there – and Trump duly obliged.>>>

Israel owns and operates foreign policy of US: Journalist

Israel owns and operates the foreign policy of the Unites States, according to Wayne Madsen, an investigative journalist in Washington.

Madsen, an author and columnist specializing in intelligence and international affairs, made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Tuesday while commenting on the speech US Vice President Mike Pence delivered to the annual conference by the pro-Israel AIPAC lobby group on Monday.

In his address to the AIPAC, Pence hailed the bond between their country and Israel as “the best they have ever been.”

Pence celebrated the Trump administration's efforts towards strengthening the United States’ relationship with Israel and commitment to fighting anti-Semitism around the world.

"We stand with Israel because that's what the American people have always done," he said. "We stand with Israel because her cause is our cause, her values are our values, her fight is our fight."

Trump Won't Meet Poland's Leaders Until Their Holocaust Law Is Repealed, US Diplomats Have Reportedly Warned

The US quietly rolled out diplomatic sanctions against Poland last month in response to the country's new Holocaust law, the Polish outlet Onet Wiadomo?ci reported Tuesday.

Onet reported that it had obtained a memo, dated Feb. 20, that said Poland's leaders would not be allowed to meet with President Donald Trump or Vice President Mike Pence until the law was repealed.

State Department officials also reportedly warned that the US might withhold funding for joint military projects in Poland, including the stationing of US forces in the country as part of joint NATO defense efforts.

YouTube,Twitter and Facebook May Soon Use ADL’s ‘Online Hate Index’ to Detect ‘Hate Speech’ on Platforms

The Anti-Defamation League has stated that social media companies YouTube, Twitter and Facebook may use the group’s “Online Hate Index” to detect hate speech on their platforms.

The ADL published a video on their YouTube page recently outlining the use of their new “Online Hate Index.” The video features Brittan Heller, the director of the ADL Center for Technology and Society. Heller explains the goal of the new index is to “help tech platforms better understand the growing amount of hate on social media, and to use that information to address the problem.” The index will reportedly use machine learning, artificial intelligence, and social science to identify trend and patterns in so-called “hate speech.”

Israel Now Arming 7 Terrorist Groups In Syria, Report

By Brandon Turbeville

Israel has long been known to provide support to terrorists operating in Syria ever since the crisis began in 2011. From providing medical support to terrorist fighters as well as training and intelligence and even some amount of weaponry and logistics, the Israelis have openly supported the so-called rebels in their efforts to overthrow the secular government of Bashar al-Assad. Indeed, Israeli airstrikes on Syrian military and/or allied military positions in support of terrorist factions are the most obvious means of support with Israel having struck Syria around one hundred times since the beginning of the war.

However, while all this information is well known, more evidence has emerged that Israel is now providing terrorists with even more direct support and weaponry that it had done previously...

UK Prime Minister Theresa May recruits British royalty to thwart BDS

Stuart Littlewood says the aim of Prince William's visit to the Holy Land must be very different to the one described by the UK government or wished for by Netanyahu, and that if he is seen “to lend legitimacy to a grasping, racist enterprise like the Israel Project… it will surely come to haunt him”. >>

Israeli army’s lies can no longer salvage its image

"A half-century of occupation has not only corrupted generations of teenage Israeli soldiers who have been allowed to lord it over Palestinians. It has also needed an industry of lies and self-deceptions to make sure the consciences of Israelis are never clouded by a moment of doubt – that maybe their army is not so moral after all.">>

Netanyahu: Trump and I Talked 'Iran, Iran, Iran,' We Discussed Palestinians for 15 Minutes

Following Prime Minister Netanyahu's meeting in Washington on Monday with U.S. President Donald Trump, the premier reportedly said that he is trying to resolve the tension in his government so it can complete its term.

When Netanyahu left for Washington over the weekend, his coalition was deadlocked over demands by his ultra-Orthodox coalition partner, United Torah Judaism, to pass a law before the 2019 state budget goes through, which would exempt Haredi yeshiva students from the draft.

Deportation or prison: Israel's African asylum seekers

In January 2018, Israel approved a plan that asked asylum seekers to choose between indefinite detention in an Israeli prison or deportation to a third country in Africa.

Rwanda and Uganda are reported to be the countries accepting those deported from Israel, despite denials from both governments.

Labour apparatchiks smear Black activist in “anti-Semitism” witch hunt

A campaigner against racism is resisting attempts to have him expelled from the UK’s Labour Party over fabricated claims of anti-Semitism.

Marc Wadsworth faces a disciplinary hearing of party bureaucrats on 25 April, he told The Electronic Intifada, and has had to hire a lawyer.

He has launched a crowdfunding campaign to help with legal costs.

The hearing is a high-profile part of what Labour activists say is a “witch hunt” of left-wingers and critics of Israel.

The Jewish anti-Zionist and anti-racist campaigner Tony Greenstein also has a hearing on Sunday about his suspension from Labour.

AIPAC panics over progressives abandoning Israel

The Israel lobby group AIPAC kicked off its annual policy conference in Washington on the weekend, and speaker after speaker expressed fears that progressive Democrats are abandoning Israel. The speakers urged progressives to stay in the bipartisan fold of support for the Jewish state; they insisted that Israel is a progressive cause. But many also embraced Donald Trump and Nikki Haley– evidence of the rightwing character of Israel support, which is driving the partisan divide in our country.

Israel is trying to ‘suck America into’ Iranian war that could lead to world war — Lawrence Wilkerson

Israel is trying to “suck America into” a war with Iran that could destabilize the Middle East and lead to a world war in much the way that the imperial rivalries in 1914 led to the First World War, Lawrence Wilkerson, former chief of staff to Secretary of State Colin Powell, warned in Washington last week.

A war with Iran, he said, could “perhaps terminate the experiment that is Israel and do irreparable damage to the empire that America has become.”

But Israeli leaders want a war, and they are pushing one with the support of their American political friends, including Democrats like Sen. Chris Coons of Delaware, whose overheated rhetoric about Iran recalls Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi propagandist, Wilkerson said. Another pro-war faction are “warmed-over neoconservatives” who got us into the Iraq war.

“I’ve been there, done that; I don’t need the tour,” he said.

Universities are demanding professors disavow BDS before being allowed to speak on campus

Last year, in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, the city of Dickinson, a suburb of Houston, Texas, required its residents to sign a form affirming they do not engage in a boycott of Israel as a pre-requisite to obtaining federal relief aid. The ACLU sharply criticized the requirement as unconstitutional, and the city of Dickinson eventually rescinded it for individuals, while maintaining that state agencies are blocked from contracting with, or investing in, companies that boycott Israel. Texas is one of more than 20 states that have passed anti-BDS laws, with Texas governor Greg Abbott declaring that “Anti-Israel Policies are anti-Texas policies.”

It’s Time For AIPAC To Register As A Foreign Agent – The Forward

AIPAC is one of the leading forces behind the Israel lobby, joined in recent years by the ascending Christians United for Israel. Other Jewish “pro-Israel” organizations are niche affairs, representing particular constituencies on the left or right. But it’s AIPAC that is the registered lobby on Capitol Hill, and it is AIPAC whose clout on matters relating to Israel exceeds the clout of the National Rifle Association on matters related to guns; while the NRA’s sway is almost entirely over Republicans, AIPAC has historically drawn its support from both parties. Is there any place but AIPAC that not only gets Mike Pence, Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi in the same room, but also gets to hear them in near total agreement?

Palestinian Official Accuses Israel of Spraying Chemicals on Gaza

Israeli authorities have reportedly deployed herbicides along the border with the Gaza Strip, provoking the ire of the Palestinian administration.

Nizar al-Wahedi, an official from the Palestinian Agriculture Ministry, said that an Israeli aircraft was recently spotted spraying herbicides along the border between Israel and the Gaza Strip, the Anadolu Agency reports.

"These chemicals cause damage to agricultural crops and harm farmlands," the official said, insisting that "Israel has no right to spray herbicides on Palestinian farmlands."

The Lies and Self-deceptions at Work Within Israel’s “Moral” Army

It is has been a very bad week for those claiming Israel has the most moral army in the world. Here’s a small sample of abuses of Palestinians in recent days in which the Israeli army was caught lying.

A child horrifically injured by soldiers was arrested and terrified into signing a false confession that he was hurt in a bicycle accident. A man who, it was claimed, had died of tear-gas inhalation was actually shot at point-blank range, then savagely beaten by a mob of soldiers and left to die. And soldiers threw a tear gas canister at a Palestinian couple, baby in arms, as they fled for safety during a military invasion of their village.

In the early 2000s, at the dawn of the social media revolution, Israelis used to dismiss filmed evidence of brutality by their soldiers as fakery. It was what they called “Pallywood” – a conflation of Palestinian and Hollywood.

What’s in Al Jazeera’s undercover film on the US Israel lobby?

The leading neoconservative think tank Foundation for Defense of Democracies is functioning as an agent of the Israeli government, Al Jazeera’s forthcoming investigation on the US Israel lobby will reveal.

According to a source who has seen the undercover documentary, it contains footage of a powerful Israeli official claiming that “We have FDD. We have others working on this.”

Sima Vaknin-Gil, a former Israeli military intelligence officer, is said to state that the foundation is “working on” projects for Israel including “data gathering, information analysis, working on activist organizations, money trail. This is something that only a country, with its resources, can do the best.”

Under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, commonly known as FARA, US organizations and individuals who work on behalf of foreign governments are required to register with the counterintelligence section of the Department of Justice.

Israel slaps entry ban on Norway’s largest labor union

A routine matter of racial profiling by Israeli authorities has spiraled into a diplomatic attack on Norway’s largest labor organization.

Mohammed Malik, a Norwegian citizen with Pakistani heritage, had joined a trade union study tour organized by the Palestine Committee of Norway, but was stopped for questioning by officials at Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport on 17 February. While all other members of the delegation were allowed to continue on their trip, Malik spent the night in detention before being deported and issued a lifetime entry ban.

During Malik’s interrogation, Israeli agents discovered that he was a member of the Norwegian Food and Allied Workers Union. He was questioned about his union affiliation and the Norwegian Confederation of Trade Unions’ (LO) policy toward Israel.

Israel propagandist Alan Dershowitz protested in Qatar

Dershowitz, for decades a Harvard law professor, is one of the most prominent pro-Israel propagandists in the United States. He has a long record of justifying attacks on Palestinians, including accusing them of using their children as “human shields” so they can be killed in order to embarrass Israel.

Dershowitz has attacked President Barack Obama for refusing to veto a December 2016 UN Security Council resolution condemning Israel’s settlements in the occupied West Bank.

He also urged Donald Trump to officially recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and move the US embassy there – steps Obama’s successor in the White House took in the face of global opposition and condemnation.

The AZZ Freak Show staring Tom Pessah

If you want to understand how Jewish domination of the Palestinian solidarity movement has derailed the Palestinian struggle and caused complete paralysis of the movement, the explanation can be found in 972.com and Tom Pessah .

“Anti-Semitism is unlike most other forms of hatred” writes Pessah at 972.com today. And why? Because “it is both a form of bigotry and a false accusation.” An Israeli Jew ‘pro’ Palestinian is telling us that while hatred of Jews is based on lies, other forms of hatred (misogyny, anti black, Islamophobia) must be factually supported. Can you think of a more telling example of morbid Judeo centrism?

Study: At least 78% of humanitarian aid intended for Palestinians ends up in Israeli coffers

Israel has been outsmarting the West, says Israeli economist Shir Hever, making a profit on the occupation instead of paying its bills. Hever’s study indicates that the international community in its generosity has so incentivized the occupation, that Israelis – not Palestinians – have become “the most aid-dependent people in the world.”

If the tables are turned, and the occupation is suddenly not profitable, perhaps it will come to an end?

Israel Plans a New War in Syria – but Not for the Reasons It Claims

Israel has been laying the political groundwork for a military escalation in Syria since mid-2017. That’s when Israeli officials began to repeat two interlinked political themes: that Iran must be prevented from establishing permanent bases and implanting its proxy forces in the Syrian Golan Heights, and that Iran is secretly building factories in Syria and Lebanon to provide Hezbollah with missiles capable of precise targeting.

But the evidence suggests that the reasons publicly avowed by Israeli officials are not the real motive behind the escalation of Israel’s air attacks and ground combat presence in Syria.
