Netanyahu Promised Mozes to Stifle Adelson's Daily: 'We Can Legislate It, We'll Set Up a Committee'

Also on Friday, Channel 10 cited senior police officials as saying that they will likely recommend charging Netanyahu in both cases, the first of which touches on his negotiations with Mozes and the second of which focuses on suspicions that he received gifts and benefits from businessman. According to Channel 2, these benefits were worth 600,000 shekels ($150,000).

Meanwhile, the Justice Ministry and the prosecution believe that an indictment is more likely to emerge from the second case, while the first case is less certain, Channel 10 said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This couldn't possibly happen to a more deserving politician!! :-)

Netanyahu MAY be able to use the power of the Prime Ministry to make this "go away"; but if he cannot, there may be a snap election in Israel, and perhaps (heaven willing) a different, less volatile; less insane and hubristic; and more pragmatic direction taken by their government.

One can always hope...

Ron Paul Classic: "We've Been Neo-Conned!" (2003 Video)

"The modern-day, limited-government movement has been co-opted. The conservatives have failed in their effort to shrink the size of government. There has not been, nor will there soon be, a conservative revolution in Washington. Political party control of the federal government has changed, but the inexorable growth in the size and scope of government has continued unabated. The liberal arguments for limited government in personal affairs and foreign military adventurism were never seriously considered as part of this revolution. Since the change of the political party in charge has not made a difference, who's really in charge? If the particular party in power makes little difference, whose policy is it that permits expanded government programs, increased spending, huge deficits, nation building and the pervasive invasion of our privacy, with fewer Fourth Amendment protections than ever before?

Israel Strikes Airport Near Damascus

Israeli forces delivered military strikes against the Mezzah military air facility near the Syrian capital of Damascus early on Friday. The strikes targeted an ammunitions hub, producing an enormous explosion.

The Israeli strikes followed a suicide bombing conducted by the Jabhat Fatah al-Sham terrorist group which claimed lives of at least nine people.

The airport is a major logistical asset used by the Syrian government to transit troops and military supplies. The Syrian army warned that there will be repercussions for Israel for the “flagrant attack” on the airport.

Will Trump Cause a Crisis for AIPAC?

AIPAC is facing a major crisis. It is losing its clout on Capitol Hill. Politicians no longer fear its disfavor. It is being outflanked on both the right and left by relatively new, upstart lobbies that are far better at playing the Washington game. This, at least, is the contention of Armin Rosen in a very lengthy and much-discussed analysis appearing in the on-line journal Tablet.

Why Did the Al-Jazeera Expose Fail?

The Brits should certainly ask themselves how come it is left to a Qatari TV network to reveal the shocking news about their democracy being taken over by a foreign Lobby. Should this not be the concern for the BBC or the Guardian? And even after the Al-Jazeera expose, the British media remained silent and the question must be asked: would it have stayed as silent had Shai Masot been a Russian? Would it have stayed as silent if MP Joan Ryan was exposed as an Iranian lobbyist?

VIDEO: General James Mattis Tells Sen. Lindsey Graham: "The Capital of Israel Is Tel Aviv, I Stick With The Current U.S. Policy"

Retired U.S. Marine Corps General James 'Mad Dog' Mattis was questioned in his Senate confirmation hearings for Secretary of Defense on Thurssay, January 12. Neocon Senator Lindsay Graham peppered a subdued Mattis with questions about what is the capital of Israel, asking "do you agree with me that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel?" But Graham's smarmy pressure-tactics fell flat, and did not work. Mattis flatly replied that the capital of Israel was Tel Aviv.

Senate Bill Proposes To Defund UN Over Israel Settlement Vote

Two US senators have introduced legislation to withdraw funding for the United Nations over last month’s resolution condemning Israeli settlement construction on the occupied Palestinian territories.

The bill, called the Safeguard Israel Act, was presented Thursday by Republican senators Lindsey Graham and Ted Cruz, and would cut off funding for the UN until the US president confirms the repeal of the Security Council Resolution 2334 that called Israel’s settlements a violation of international law.

Israel to Construct Settlement on Palestinian Trucker’s House Site

Reports said Israel is planning to build a new illegal settlement in the occupied East al-Quds and on the site of the home of the Palestinian man involved in a deadly truck attack against Israeli troops. Tel Aviv has already ordered the demolition of Fadi al-Qanbar’s home in the Jabel Mukaber neighborhood of southern East Jerusalem, presstv reported. The municipality of Jerusalem now aims to build 2,500 settler units on the remains of the soon-to-be-destroyed house and a large surrounding area. The plan, according to local media, will leave the family of the slain 28-year-old Palestinian man homeless under Israel’s policy of home demolitions, which has been widely denounced as an act of collective punishment and illegal under international law. Israeli authorities have called for extremely tough measures against the family of Qanbar, who drove a truck into a group of Israeli troops and killed four of them on January 8. The Palestinian trucker was shot dead.

An Israeli army tactic: Intimidating Palestinian children in the night

The two wanted individuals were sleeping in the boys’ bedroom, with blue walls and three beds, all of them blue, too. The girls’ room is pink. Tariq woke up in a fright. A soldier grabbed him by the arm. At this point seven soldiers were in the house. One of them took Hikmat to the living room and ordered him to sit on the floor. Six-year-old Mahmoud, in his father’s arms, began to cry, “Daddy, daddy!” Another soldier shut Iman in her room with her two daughters; as he did this, one of them, Shahed, 11, broke into tears. The two wanted brothers were taken to separate rooms, and the doors closed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This vicious intimidation of Palestinian children by masked IDF members is an old stock in trade device.

Wow, it must take a REALLY MANLY MAN to punish innocent kids this way, just for their being Palestinian!!

Israeli official who plotted to 'take down' British MPs resigns

The Israeli embassy official who was caught on camera plotting to “take down” British MPs has resigned from government service.

Shai Masot, a senior political officer at the embassy in London, resigned several days ago when he was sent back to Israel. The UK Foreign Office and the Israeli ministry of foreign affairs both said that they regarded the matter as closed.

But the shadow foreign secretary, Emily Thornberry, has called on the Commons foreign affairs committee to conduct an inquiry into the matter, saying it amounted to “improper interference in our democratic politics” by a foreign state.

Masot was filmed by an undercover reporter from Al Jazeera television’s investigations unit as he talked about taking down MPs he considered hostile to Israel, including Sir Alan Duncan, the foreign office minister.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good on ya, Al Jazeera; good on ya!!!!!

But a small caveat to the British House of Lords, and House of Commons; please don't think the problem has been cured here because the symptom is no longer there.
At this point, you must fully expect anyone representing the Israeli government who replaces Shai Masot to be looking at attempting to do precisely the same thing he was, just with a little more finesse; this is the way the Israeli establishment thinks, and the sooner you accept it, the sooner you will be more able to prevent its negative impact on the British government.

REPORT: US INTEL MET SECRETLY WITH MOSSAD, PLOTTING TO HIDE INTELLIGENCE FROM TRUMP

A bombshell report from Israeli news service Ynet says Israeli and American intelligence officials are plotting to hide intelligence from incoming president Donald Trump.

Trump needs to see this report. Our lying press is completely ignoring it.

YnetNews reports:

Donald Trump’s upcoming inauguration as the next president of the United States is causing Israeli intelligence officials to lose sleep as well. Discussions held in closed forums recently raised fears of a leakage of Israeli intelligence top-classified information, clandestine modus oprandi and sources, which have been exposed to the American intelligence community over the past 15 years, to Russia – and from there to Iran.

The cause of concern are the suspicions of unreported ties between the president-elect or his associates and the Kremlin, whose agents are also associated with intelligence officials in Tehran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Are you flipping kidding me?!?

And THIS, from the government whose leader said the following, the day after the election?!? Netanyahu hails Trump as a "True Friend of Israel"

So now, "true friends of Israel" have intel withheld from their governments, based on utterly false narrative, innuendo, and lies?!?

President Elect Trump, please keep your eyes open when it comes to Israeli geopolitics; their leadership very much likes to collectively "relieve themselves" in the faces of American leaders, then nonchalantly tell them it's raining!!

Syrian Army warns Israel it will respond after military airport bombed near Damascus

The army said several missiles were fired at the Mezzeh airport’s compounds from the Lake Tiberias area in northern Israel at about 12am Friday. The strike reportedly damaged one of the compounds of the crucial military facility.

The Mezzeh airport is located west of Damascus, just 5 kilometers from the Presidential Palace, the official residence of Syrian President Bashar Assad.

ISRAELI JETS BOMB DAMASCUS MILITARY AIRPORT; SYRIA VOWS IT WILL RESPOND TO "FLAGRANT ATTACK"

Just as the Syrian proxy war showed some hopeful signs of finally dying down, the Syrian army command said on Friday that Israeli jets have bombed the Mezzeh military airport west of Damascus, accusing Tel Aviv of supporting terrorism, and warned Tel Aviv of repercussions of what it called a "flagrant" attack. Syrian state TV quoted the army as saying several rockets were fired from an area near Lake Tiberias in northern Israel just after midnight which landed in the compound of the airport, a major facility for elite Republican Guards and special forces. The airport was rocked by multiple explosions, some of which were captured by social media.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Russia's President Vladimir Putin; the Israeli government is doing its damnedest to get you to respond militarily here, as the "excuse" for all that manpower and weaponry with which the US and NATO have stockpiled on your borders to be allowed to be unleashed, and describe it as their response to "Russian aggression."

Please don't take the bait, President Putin; it is only, thankfully, one week before the inauguration of Donald Trump.

And when that happens, I strongly suspect that the relationship between our two countries will become infinitely more pragmatic, and business-like, which is the way sensible, mature countries treat each other.

And finally,sir: no matter how prodigious the amounts of horse manure this government and their presstitutes are attempting to rain down in their futile, and fact-free, attempts to demonise Russia, in order to get Americans whipped up into a "wargasm", trumpeting the necessity of a war against Russia for false, and stunningly stupid, claims against it, no thinking American I know wants war with Russia.

And to President Al-Assad; please be very careful and cautious about how you answer this vicious, unprovoked Israeli attack.

This attack, in the dead of night, speaks volumes about the character, and complete, and utter, absence of morality, of the current Israeli government in Tel Aviv.

SYRIAN WAR REPORT – JANUARY 13, 2017: ISRAEL STRIKES AIRPORT NEAR DAMASCUS

Israeli forces delivered military strikes against the Mezzah military air facility near the Syrian capital of Damascus early on Friday. The strikes targeted an ammunitions hub, producing an enormous explosion.

The airport is a major logistical asset used by the Syrian government to transit troops and military supplies. The Syrian army warned that there will be repercussions for Israel for the “flagrant attack” on the airport.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I suspect the plan here is to goad Russia into taking some action to protect Syria from Israel, which will be spun as a threat to Israel, and used as the excuse to send those forces massed along the Polish border into Russia.

Putin won't bite. He has only a week to wait things out.

Meanwhile, I'll bet this is Trump's "red pill" regarding Israel's true nature!

Israel's manipulation of UK politics: time for zero-tolerance

Both the Foreign Office and Boris Johnson, the UK's Foreign Secretary, have declared the Shai Masot affair "closed" after Masot, an employee of the Israeli embassy and probably a Mossad asset, plotted with gullible British MPs and political hangers-on to "take down" senior government figures including Johnson's deputy, Sir Alan Duncan. “The UK has a strong relationship with Israel and we consider the matter closed,” they announced. The Speaker of the House of Commons John Bercow, who is Jewish, has also declined to investigate.

Enough Fearmongering: Only One Democratic State Is Possible in Palestine and Israel

This is not an argument against the two-state solution; for the latter merely existed as a ruse to pacify Palestinians, buy time and demarcate the conflict with a mirage-like political horizon. If the US was indeed keen on a two-state solution, it would have fought vehemently to make it a reality, decades ago.

To say that the two-state solution is now dead is to subscribe to the illusion that it was once alive and possible.

That said, it behooves everyone to understand that coexistence in a one democratic state is not a dark scenario that spells doom for the region.

It is time to abandon unattainable illusions and focus all energies to foster coexistence, based on equality and justice for all.

Indeed, there can be one state between the river and the sea, and that is a democratic state for all of its people, regardless of their ethnicity or religious beliefs.

Israeli government cash to UK’s Union of Jewish Students exposed

The Union of Jewish Students receives funding from the Israeli embassy in London, a six-month investigation into the Israel lobby has revealed.

“The Israeli embassy in the UK gives money to the Union of Jewish Students,” pro-Israel activist Adam Schapira says, speaking to an undercover reporter.

This comes to light in episode one of Al Jazeera’s groundbreaking film The Lobby which was broadcast on Wednesday, and can be watched in the video above.

How many British MPs are working for Israel?*

Al Jazeera are to be congratulated on an undercover investigation exposing something most of us could probably have guessed: that some Israeli embassy staff in the UK – let’s not pussy around, Mossad agents – are working with senior political activists and politicians in the Conservative and Labour parties to subvert their own parties from within, and skew British foreign policy so that it benefits Israeli, rather than British, interests.

Murray McCully: Why NZ sponsored the resolution against Israel's settlements

The spirit of unanimity in which the United Nations Security Council passed resolution 2334 on December 23 stands in sharp contrast to the condemnation and accusations that have dominated subsequent commentary from Israel and that country's supporters.

New Zealanders deserve to know why the issue of settlements has become so challenging, and why it came before the council in December 2016.

At the heart of this whole debate is whether we will see a future in which two states, Israel and Palestine, live side by side in peace and security. This two state solution has been the accepted basis for resolving the Palestinian question for many decades now, enshrined in various negotiated accords and UN Security Council resolutions, and the focus for several unsuccessful attempts to broker final agreement between the parties,

Justice minister claims Bible gives Israel “legal right” to Palestinian city

On Tuesday, Israel’s justice minister Ayelet Shaked invoked biblical mythology to advocate for expanded Israeli Jewish colonization in the occupied West Bank city of Hebron.

“This place was bought by patriarch Abraham for its full price, the first deed of sale of its type in the world, so we have both historical and legal right to this place,” she said in a short videotaped speech during a visit to the Ibrahimi Mosque in Hebron.

The Plot Against Britain...

A few days ago in London, we witnessed a senior diplomat in the Israeli embassy caught on camera plotting to “take down” members of the British government including Foreign Office minister Sir Alan Duncan. We then learned that a senior official from the UK’s National Union of Students, as part of a sting involving the Israeli embassy, was covertly filmed conspiring to oust the organisation’s president Malia Bouattia. Malia Bouattia is the first Muslim president of the NUS and some British Jewish institutes have been concerned by her overwhelming popularity. It has also been revealed that the Israeli embassy has been plotting to undermine Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and caught on video allocating funds towards that goal.

WHAT YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT ELECTION MEDDLING

Just so that we do not forget who really meddles in US elections and US

Israeli cable admits that, like the US, they had no evidence of Iraq WMDs

In a diplomatic cable from Tel Aviv, dated April 6, 2005 (05TELAVIV2125_a), Israeli officials professed that they had ‘no evidence’ of Saddam Hussein developing WMDs, and that the Iraqi regime ‘would never support al-Qaeda’ or ‘jihad’.

Israel, generally considered to be one of the US’ closest military allies in the ‘war against terror’, therefore secretly maintained an intelligence-rooted position that directly contradicted the stated assertions of the War in Iraq – that Hussein harbored members of Al-Qaedi and was in possession of WMDs.

Following Jerusalem Attack, Israel Seeks Detention Without Trial of Suspected ISIS Supporters

The security cabinet decided Sunday to use administrative detention orders, or detention without trial, against suspects who identify with the Islamic State group. The measure was at a meeting of the security cabinet following an attack in Jerusalem that claimed the lives of four soldiers, a senior official said.

Security sources told the ministers at the meeting that the measures were already taken in response to the attack. The measures included a blockade of the Palestinian Jabal Mukkaber neighborhood, adjacent to the site of the attack, from which the attacker is said to have driven the truck.
The security cabinet also resolved to demolish the home of the driver of the truck as soon as possible and to reject requests by the attacker's family for family reunification with relatives who live in the territories. It was also decided that the body of the attacker would not be returned to his family.

First week of 2017: Israel demolishes homes of 151 Palestinians, almost four times last year's average

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s promise to settlers from the unauthorized outpost of Amona to enforce the law "equally" by demolishing the homes of Arabs is being strictly fulfilled.

The number of Palestinian buildings demolished in the first week of January 2017 is almost four times as high as the weekly average for 2016: 20 structures. In 2015, the average was 10 structures a week, according to the records of the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).

In Area C, which is under full Israeli civil and security control, between Monday and Thursday the Israel Defense Forces’ Civil Administration demolished 65 structures in Palestinian communities, and seven rainwater cisterns. The Jerusalem Municipality demolished another two homes in East Jerusalem. Some 151 people, including 90 children, lived in the buildings that were demolished.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, Israel has more than 50 shades of serial genocide and slow death for Palestinians, and this is one of them.

Where do these people go, especially the children?!? What happens to the Palestinians who had lived in these now demolished housing?!?

Israeli witness in Gaza: No water, no electricity and children dying unnecessarily

Is that part of the procedure, this questioning?

“Yes. A request is submitted to the Israeli side and a summons is received to appear at a specific time for questioning.”

How does Hamas allow this?

“Hamas warns people not to provide any information. There are even signs on the Palestinian side of border crossings warning people going for questioning not to divulge anything, telling them to remember that the homeland is more precious than anything else.”

Doesn’t it make patients give up?

“Many people do. They are simply afraid. Even those who aren’t afraid aren’t guaranteed that they’ll get a permit. It can take months. Sometimes there is no reply at all. Many people die while waiting. There is also the issue of blackmail.”

Meaning what?

“Their travel permit is granted only on condition that they collaborate – information in exchange for an entry permit.”

You’re saying that the Shin Bet blackmails these patients? Can you prove that?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These activities against sick Palestinians constitutes slow motion genocide, courtesy of the Israeli government; and collective punishment, i.e., not allowing people medical treatment they desperately need, constitutes a war crime.

Labour Calls For Investigation Into Israeli Diplomat’s Plot Against MPs

Britain’s opposition Labour Party has called for an investigation into an “extremely disturbing” plot by an Israeli diplomat against pro-Palestinian MPs.

The party’s foreign affairs spokeswoman, Emily Thornberry, slammed Tel Aviv Sunday after release of a video, in which an Israeli embassy official is heard plotting to “take down” some of UK lawmakers.

U.S. ADMITS ISRAEL IS BUILDING PERMANENT APARTHEID REGIME — WEEKS AFTER GIVING IT $38 BILLION

Honest observers on both sides of the conflict have long acknowledged that the prospects for a two-state solution are virtually non-existent: another way of saying that Israel’s status as a permanent apartheid regime is inevitable. Indeed, U.S. intelligence agencies as early as 45 years ago explicitly warned that Israeli occupation would become permanent if it did not end quickly.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel has, in the 21st century, become a wretchedly apartheid, self-proclaimed theocracy with nuclear weapons, which means that a true and just peace in the Middle East can no longer be achieved.

The US government has consistently enabled this behaviour.

The engineering of the locations of settlers' compounds has been deliberately created to make a contiguous Palestinian state completely impossible.

All Palestinians can expect now is more serial genocide, coupled with robust expulsions from homes in which Palestinian families have lived for generations, and the seizing of more Palestinian lands.

For all the Syrian refugees the US government has admitted into this country, there should have been a robust program to entitle Palestinians to come to the US; because the US and Israeli government have, in concert, created a situation in which the Palestinians will have no home anymore, whatsoever.

How Many British MPs Are Working For Israel?

Al Jazeera is to be congratulated on an undercover investigation exposing something most of us could probably have guessed: that some Israeli embassy staff in the UK – let’s not pussy around, Mossad agents – are working with senior political activists and politicians in the Conservative and Labour parties to subvert their own parties from within, and skew British foreign policy so that it benefits Israeli, rather than British, interests.

Jewish Defense League lends its support to Neo-Nazis planning an armed protest against Jews

ed note–when the Aryan Nations marched here in sleepy, lil’ old Coeur d’Alene, Idaho years ago, the JDL made sure to be here and make its presence known and received national headlines for doing so.
But in this case, they have decided to ‘jine up’ with Andrew Anglin and his ‘movement’ and their plans to march through sleepy, lil’ old Whitefish, Montana with–as Anglin describes it–‘machine guns’…
For those having a difficult time putting the pieces together, what Andrew and his gang–who get near-daily exposure on the JMSM–are planning is to hold a public march through Whitefish, Montana, armed with–again, using Anglin’s own words–‘machine guns’–in the interests of intimidating the town’s Jewish residents as a result of what these same residents recently did in threatening the mother of Robert Spencer, leader of the same ‘alt-right’ that has featured in so much discussion involving Donald Trump.
So, let’s see if we can figure all this out.

Kerry, Netanyahu And The Settlements

Following the recent double-whammy against Israel, the first being the United Nations resolution condemning and demanding a stop to all settlement activity, and the second being United States Secretary of State John Kerry’s speech slamming Israeli policy, Israeli Prime Murderer Benjamin Netanyahu seems beside himself in fury. Mr. Kerry, he lamented shortly after the secretary’s speech, “obsessively dealt with settlements and barely touched upon the root of the conflict”. He then made this incredible statement: “No one wants peace more than the people of Israel”. Well, there you are.

Israel apology after plot against UK politicians

The Israeli embassy has apologised to UK deputy foreign secretary Sir Alan Duncan for comments made by one of its staff members on plans "to take [him] down" due to his criticism of Israel's settlement activity in the occupied West Bank.

The comments, made by a senior political officer at the Israeli embassy Shai Masot, were secretly captured on film during a six-month undercover operation by Al Jazeera's Investigative Unit, which reveals plots by the Israeli diplomat and a British civil servant to destroy the careers of senior politicians.

In a conversation with Maria Strizzolo, who was then chief of staff to MP Robert Halfon, the deputy chairman of the ruling Conservative Party, Masot asked her if he could give her some names of MPs he would suggest she "take down".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

THIS is precisely how the Israeli Governmental Cartel thinks and operates.

And God bless Al Jazeera for having caught this conversation on film!

As a Christian Pacifist Activist, I would love to visit Jerusalem one day; unfortunately, however, because I have posted articles on this blog which have been more than a little critical of Israel's treatment of Palestinians, I would either be violently interrogated at Ben-Gurion airport, then refused entry, or assassinated outright if I got through airport security.

And to American Christian Zionists, who believe that they must blindly support everything Israel does (including serial genocide against the Palestinians), if you ever understood what most Israelis think of you, you would be wounded to the core of your being.

I don't know how "useful idiots" translates into Hebrew, but you catch my drift.

Avigail Abarbanel: I Boycott Israeli Products and Ask Everyone I Know to Do the Same

The plight of the Palestinian people under the military occupation is so painful that even sometimes the citizens of Israel recount it in heartrending terms. Avigail Abarbanel is an Israeli-born psychotherapist who migrated to Australia in 1991. She renounced her Israeli citizenship in protest at the Israeli mistreatment of the Palestinian people. Ms. Abarbanel served in the Israeli army between 1982 and 1984 during Israel’s first invasion of Lebanon. She tells Fars News Agency that the mentality of the family and the society where she grew up taught her to look at the Palestinians in a derogatory way. Ten years after moving to Australia, she woke up to the cruelties the Palestinians were subject to and decided to renounce her Israeli citizenship. She believes that Israel’s educational system is oriented on dehumanizing the Palestinian people and viewing them as the ‘other’.

Israel Mulls Law Granting Immunity to Killer Soldiers

Israel’s deputy minister for military affairs, Eli Ben-Dahan, claimed that the legislation would permit the Israeli soldiers to “carry out their duty … without fear of potential criminal prosecution", presstv reported. The law would grant immunity to Israeli forces in “operations they carried out, or avoided carrying out, before, during, and after a military operation…,” Ben-Dahan said. Justifying the controversial measure, the official further claimed that too many Israeli forces have faced lengthy legal proceedings over the past few years, “only to be acquitted eventually.” The remarks came a few days after an Israeli soldier was convicted of manslaughter for shooting dead severely-wounded Palestinian Abed al-Fatah al-Sharif following an alleged stabbing attack in West Bank city of Hebron last year. The March 2015 killing, which was captured on video by a Palestinian human rights activist, prompted international condemnation.

It was recorded in October 2016 as part of an investigation by Al Jazeera.

Mr Masot asked her: "Can I give you some names of MPs that I would suggest you take down?"

Ms Strizzolo replied that all MPs have "something they're trying to hide" and Mr Masot responded by saying "I have some MPs", adding "she knows which MPs I want to take down" before specifying "the deputy foreign minister".

By Condemning UN's Anti-Settlement Resolution, House Democrats Side With Israel's Far-Right Over President Obama

A majority of Democratic lawmakers in the House joined hands with virtually all congressional Republicans to vote for a bill condemning a United Nations Security Council resolution that reaffirms the illegality of Israel's settlements on occupied Palestinian land. By rejecting the UN resolution, the House Democrats rebuked the leader of their party, President Barack Obama, whose administration registered a rare abstention vote on the measure, triggering a tantrum from the far-right government of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

US House Shamelessly Grovels to Israel… AGAIN

Yesterday, January 5, the US House put on a shameful display of groveling to Israel, a display even more noxious than their usual butt-kissing of the world’s #1 terror state, Israel, voting to pass HR 11.

The House measure, which is non-binding, calls for the UN resolution “to be repealed or fundamentally altered so that… it is no longer one-sided and anti-Israel” and allows all final status issues toward a two-state solution to be resolved through direct bilateral negotiation.

It also demands that the United States ensures that no action be taken at the Paris Conference on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict scheduled for January 15, that would impose an agreement on the two sides.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Netanyahu Wants Pardon For IDF Soldier Who Shot Defenseless, Wounded Palestinian In The Head

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday called for the pardon of an Israel Defense Forces (IDF) soldier who had just been convicted of manslaughter for fatally shooting a wounded Palestinian man last year in the occupied West Bank city of Hebron.

“Sgt Elor Azaria, 20, shot Abdul Fatah al-Sharif, 21, in the head while he was lying immobile on a road,” as BBC News writes. Al-Sharif was allegedly involved in a knife attack against another Israeli soldier and had already been shot, though he remained alive.

John Kerry: Hero or Backstabber?

What just happened? Did the feckless John Kerry, the sidekick of the vainglorious Barack Hussein Obama, just become a hero of epic proportion? "How do you ask a man to be the last man to die in Vietnam? How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake? ... [W]e have been used in the worst fashion by the administration of this country." So, he had goodness in him. It perhaps got lost amidst money and power. And, now again, here he is speaking truth to the American establishment. Kerry is renewing the call for a two-state solution that will be acceptable to Israel and Palestine. Of course, nothing will be acceptable to Netanyahu, as he and the extreme elements of Likud Party types are committed to what is known as "Greater Israel". "Greater Israel" includes, for instance, parts of Iraq, Iran and Egypt...

US Aid Package to Israel Incentivizes War

On September 14, 2016, the United States and Israel signed a “memorandum of understanding” (MOU) pledging $38 billion in “security assistance” to Israel over ten years. The agreement replaces a similar MOU signed by the Bush administration.

However, the Obama administration claimed two key differences on its MOU web page. First, Israel is not allowed to lobby Congress for hundreds of millions in additional funds from its embassy and US affinity organizations. Second, more of the ten-year allotment must be spent on US military contractors rather than inside Israel. However, “escape clauses” in the written agreement – which the White House never released – make such limitations unlikely. Most worrying, the MOU dangles Israel a blank check if it launches war on its neighbors, while continuing to provide the IDF with the free food and fuel it would need to sustain such a conflict.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Obama should have known better than to have signed off on this deal; and if he thought, for one second, that Israel would use this money for defensive, rather than offensive, military operations, he was being dangerously naive, and indulging in what can only be characterised as "magical thinking".

The nation of Israel just cannot get along with nearly any countries in its neighborhood; and potentially, Israel may well use this money toward waging wars on neighboring countries it thinks it can get away with attacking, potentially like Lebanon, which is no where nearly as militarily capable as is Israel.

US Senators Introduce Bill to Move Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem

Three US senators introduced a bill to congress on Wednesday that would recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s undivided capital and move the US embassy there from Tel Aviv, defying international stances on the decades-old Israeli-Palestinian conflict resting on a two-state solution.

According to The Guardian, Republican senators Ted Cruz (Texas), Dean Heller (Nevada), and Marco Rubio (Florida), introduced the Jerusalem Embassy and Recognition Act at the 115th Congress in Washington on Wednesday, as Republicans control both the Senate and House of Representatives for the first time since 2007.

If implemented, the bill would give legitimacy to Israel’s illegal occupation of East Jerusalem since 1967, disregard Palestinian claims to the city, and possibly terminate a longstanding White House policy to perpetually defer a 1995 Congressional decision to recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital and move the embassy there.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Should such a move go forward, it will cripple any chances for a true and lasting peace in the Middle East, and demonstrate that the US government is pathologically incapable of being an "honest broker" for peace between Israelis and Palestinians.

2016 'deadliest year' for West Bank children in decade

Israeli forces have killed more Palestinian children in the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem, in 2016 than any other year in the last decade, rights group Defence for Children International (DCI) has said.

The organisation's chapter in the occupied Palestinian territories recorded the killings of 32 Palestinian children (under 18), making 2016 "the deadliest year of the past decade" for them, the group said in a recent report.

Many of those killings happened during Israeli military raids on Palestinian towns in the occupied West Bank, confrontations with the Israeli army or during unarmed protests.

"Israeli soldiers employ a shoot-to-kill policy. They have the green light to kill Palestinians, and the fact that they can do so with impunity and no consequences builds the foundation for such shootings to take place," Ayed Abu Eqtaish, Accountability Programme Director at DCI-Palestine, told Al Jazeera.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The assassination of children is an assassination of a culture's future, and this is precisely what is happening to Palestinian kids in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

Serial Israeli genocide of Palestinians, coupled with robust expulsions of Palestinian families from homes in which those families have lived for generations, appears to be the order of the day in Israel.

But there is a statement that lawmakers in Tel Aviv should keep in mind from the Jewish tradition as expressed by the highly respected Rabbi, Maimonides: "Do not do anything to anyone which you would not want done to you."

I do not know how, or in what format, but the hubristic intransigence of Israel in preventing the establishment of a Palestinian state may well come back to haunt it, and with an unimaginable vengeance.

In both responses, the Israeli leader illustrated George Orwell’s famous insight: The abuse of human beings starts with the abuse of language.

Israeli officials back shoot-to-kill policy of Palestinian suspects, says Human Rights Watch

Leading Israeli officials have been encouraging soldiers and police officers to kill Palestinians suspected of attacks regardless of whether lethal force is necessary, according to a new report by a leading human rights organisation.

Human Rights Watch has compiled numerous statements by senior members of Benjamin Netanyahu’s administration and the country’s police force, which appear to endorse using lethal force against suspects, irrespective of whether anyone is in danger.

International human rights law limits lethal force to circumstances in which it is necessary to protect life, and in which no other less extreme option is available.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The lady holding up the sign for media consumption, says it all through that image.

Genocide, against all Palestinians and Arabs, is obviously what she supports whole-heartedly.

No attempt at co-existence; no civility; just the assassination of all of "the others"; is this what she gets when she goes to celebrate Shabbat, is this what her rabbi teaches her, and her congregation?!? Unfortunately, in too many cases, the answer is a resounding "Yes"!!

At first the rabbi tries to convince Jesse that whites are racist against black people, a point which Jesse vehemently denies. "You just made a statement about white people that isn't true," he tells the rabbi. "It doesn't exist." The rabbi gets visibly agitated, and they argue back and forth. Jesse then launches another stream of shocking, rapid-fire questions:

•"Are there Jewish people who are racist against white people?"
•"Are there white people who are racist against Jewish people?"

Israeli Police Enter Netanyahu's Home For Questioning Over Corruption Allegations

As the Obama administration shunned Israel last week, we warned that police were calling on Israeli Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit to allow them to open a full criminal investigation against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Today, as Channel 2 reports, Israeli police entered Bibi's home for questioning. The prime minister was quick to react, blasting "don't celebrate too soon over corruption probe."

As we detailed last week, on Monday, December 26th, Israeli police announced that they are absolutely convinced that a criminal investigation will be opened in the next few days due to new documents that were recently received in a special inquiry that began about 9 months ago.

The offenses that Netanyahu allegedly will face will be bribery and aggravated-fraud. In June it was reported that police had recently started their secret investigation, with demand that no details be leaked to the media.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It will be interesting to see how Israeli politics will move, because of the corruption scandal.

The Israeli national laws allow for snap elections.

And without the power of the Prime Ministry behind him, Netanyahu may not be able to come out of this investigation politically unscathed.

Circle January 15th: 70 Nations Will Gather In Paris To Discuss The Creation Of A Palestinian State

On January 15th, representatives from 70 different countries will gather in Paris, France for an unprecedented global conference. The stated goal of this conference is to promote a “two-state solution” as the way that lasting peace will be brought to the Middle East. In Israel, there is a tremendous amount of concern that whatever is agreed upon at this conference will immediately be used as the basis for a UN Security Council resolution that would permanently divide the land of Israel and create a Palestinian state. But things would have to move very rapidly in order for that to happen, because Barack Obama’s time in the White House comes to an end on January 20th, and Donald Trump has already made it exceedingly clear that he would never support such a resolution.

A SPEECH ON PALESTINE/ISRAEL AWAITING PRESIDENT OBAMA

SECRETARY KERRY: “There are other countries in the UN who believe it is our job to dictate the terms of a solution in the Security Council. Others want us to simply recognize a Palestinian state, absent an agreement. But I want to make clear today, these are not the choices that we will make.”

QUESTION: Will the U.S. allow others to make these choices?

Obama Entitled to His Own Opinions; Absolutely Not To His Own Facts (Video)

When was the last time you saw a United States President acting like such a petulant child, or act with such recklessness and malice for the safety and wellbeing of the country and the people he just presided over for eight years? The closest thing that comes to mind for me, is when the Clinton administration did thousands of dollars in damage to the White House on their way out, ripped the “W” key off all the keyboards (a stab at George “W” Bush), and even stole are and furniture on their way out. Democrats: Always classy...

Israel's never-ending crimes: It's not just settlements. Israel has not just committed unspeakable acts of genocide but done so with absolute transparency.

In its least appealing landscape painting, it would appear that the resolution seemingly bestows upon already completed settlements de facto legitimacy and addresses only that part of the building glut currently under way or planned for tomorrows yet to come.

To make matters worse, despite its gratuitous dicta, the resolution remains very much a toothless declaration without any enforcement mechanism whatsoever - essentially relying upon a sudden burst of Israeli conscience to reverse a steady march of indifference to international law that has led Israel's way since the very first day it was manufactured from stolen land in Palestine.

U.S. Catholic Bishops Condemn "Injustices Perpetrated Against Palestinians By The Israeli Government"

Gee, how did CNN, Fox, The NY Slmes, and all the other fake news completely miss this one? Maybe they don't want the Christians in America to learn about the atrocities perpetrated against Palestinians by Israel? Most Reverand Bishop Oscar Cantu, Chairman of The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops Committee on International Justice and Peace, recently sent a following letter to U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry regarding the situation in Israel and Palestine. In it, the bishop notes that Palestinian homes are destroyed, confiscated, and the Israelis even encroach on Christian monestaries and convents!

10 Things Palestinians Can’t Do Because Of The Israeli Occupation

The Israeli government and some U.S. politicians are attacking the Obama administration for permitting a recent U.N. Security Council resolution that condemns Israeli settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories. Secretary of State John Kerry faced further ire on Wednesday after saying the settlements threaten prospects for peace in the region.

Yet part of the reason the administration decided to speak out forcefully about the settlements is because they are such a key feature of Israel’s occupation ? now approaching its 50th year. The occupation affects almost every aspect of Palestinians’ lives in the West Bank, the Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem.

Bibi Netanyahu To Kerry: "Israel Looks Forward To Working With President-Elect Trump & U.S. Congress To Repeal U.N. Resolution (Full Speech)

"Israel looks forward to working with President-elect Trump and with the American Congress, Democrats and Republicans alike, to mitigate the damage that this resolution has done and ultimately, to repeal it. Israel hopes that the outgoing Obama Administration will prevent any more damage being done to Israel at the UN in its waning days. I wish I could be comforted by the promise that the US says we will not bring any more resolutions to the UN. That's what they said about the previous resolution. We have it on absolutely incontestable evidence that the United States organized, advanced and brought this resolution to the United Nations Security Council. We'll share that information with the incoming administration. Some of it is sensitive, it's all true. You saw some of it in the protocol released in an Egyptian paper. There's plenty more; it's the tip of the iceberg."

The world has finally called Israel’s bluff on its non-existent Palestinian peace process

sraeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu has long based his settlement strategy on the assumption that the international community will ignore the plight of the Palestinians. But the United Nations proved him wrong on Dec. 23, passing Security Council resolution 2334, which reaffirms the longstanding UN ruling that all Israeli settlements built outside Israel’s pre-1967 borders violate international law.

Downing Street criticises US comments on Israel

Downing Street has criticised US Secretary of State John Kerry for calling the Netanyahu government the "most right-wing in Israel's history".

It was "not appropriate" to attack the composition of the democratically-elected government of an ally, PM Theresa May's spokesman said.

But a senior Tory MP has expressed concerns at No 10's intervention.

Crispin Blunt said US analysis was correct and on its current path Israel could not stay "democratic and Jewish".

More than 1,000 families – mostly from the Middle East and North Africa, but also from Balkan countries – had since reported their infants being systematically taken from Israeli hospitals, and put up for adoption. The claims never stood up, and the latest effort to investigate the Yemenite Children Affair in 2001 concluded that the children had either died or been buried with the hospital authorities failing to notify the parents.

Clashes, air raids tarnish Russia and Turkey's Syria truce

Clashes, shelling and air raids in western Syria marred a Russian- and Turkish-backed ceasefire that aims to end nearly six years of war and lead to peace talks between rebels and a government emboldened by recent battlefield success.

Russian President Vladimir Putin, a key ally of Syrian President Bashar Assad, announced the ceasefire Thursday after forging the agreement with Turkey, a longtime backer of the opposition.

The truce went into force at midnight but monitors and rebels reported almost immediate clashes, and violence appeared to escalate later Friday as warplanes bombed areas in the country's northwest, they said.

ISRAEL & PALESTINE: THE MAPS TELL THE TRUE STORY

FLASHBACK - KILLING THE FAMILY OF JESUS

So here is the deal. Some of the people walking around Palestine, Gaza, and the West Bank are blood relatives of Jesus. Distant blood relatives, but still blood relatives. Given 2000 years, it is possible that the vast majority of present day Palestinians are remote relatives of Jesus.

Israel is killing them.

And YOU are paying for it, which means you share the guilt. YOU are paying for the weapons used to kill the modern day family of Jesus. The moment you sign that 1040 form, you sign a confession, admitting before all the world that you are an accessory in the murder.

Think you are going to get into heaven after an insult like that?

Palestine 2017: Time To Bid Farewell to Washington and Embrace the Globe

Doubtless, the UN resolution – like all others – remains rather symbolic as long as there are no practical mechanisms to ensure the enforcement of international law.

Not only will Israel not respect the United Nations’ will but is, in fact, already accelerating its settlement activities in the Jerusalem area, in defiance of that will.

The Jerusalem municipality had announced that 300 housing units will be built in the illegal settlements of Ramat Shlomo, Ramot, and Bit Hanina while the Security Council members were preparing for the vote on the “legal invalidity” of the Jewish settlements.

The Palestinian National Authority, on the other hand, is already celebrating another symbolic “victory”, which is readily being marketed to unamused Palestinians as a major step towards their freedom and their independent state.

Israel Settlements

The position of the United States has been clear and consistent as Presidents Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama have all been against expanding illegal settlements. In the past U.S. vetoes have protected Israel in spite of Israel's callous disregards of international law and the pleas of the U.S. to comply with the international community and the requests of the U.S.
