Israel Is Rich, Powerful, and Armed With 100s of Nukes Why send it $38 billion in new death gear? (Ron Paul)

Last week’s announcement of a record-breaking US aid package for Israel underscores how dangerously foolish and out-of-touch is our interventionist foreign policy. Over the next ten years, the US taxpayer will be forced to give Israel some $38 billion dollars in military aid. It is money we cannot afford going to a country that needs no assistance to maintain its status as the most powerful military in the Middle East.

Multi-billion Dollar Weapons Deals: Why the US Backs Israel

If multibillion-dollar weapons deals are any measure, Israel and the US have never been closer.

This past week, despite a reported personal rift between President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the US and Israel signed a pact that contains the largest pledge of military assistance to a single country in US history. The ten-year agreement will provide $3.8 billion of aid yearly to Israel — up from the $3.1 billion awarded to Israel in the countries’ previous decade-long deal.

In justifying the largesse, commentators and officials have pointed to the threat of a resurgent Iran and ISIS. The deal, National Security Advisor Susan Rice said at a press conference, “will ensure that Israel has the support it needs to defend itself.”

Yet the diplomatic platitudes are less illuminating than a statement Netanyahu made a year ago at the Knesset: “I am asked if we will forever live by the sword,” the prime minister said, then gave his answer: “Yes.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That the US government is supplying both money and weapons to a wretchedly apartheid, self-proclaimed theocracy with nuclear weapons, does not bode well for peace, either in the Middle East, or the world.

Kerry tells Abbas: U.S. concerned by surge in violence, ?settlement activity

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry told Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Monday evening that the United States was concerned that the increasing violence on the West Bank and construction in the settlements was threatening the two-state solution.

The two met on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly taking place this week, on the background of the stalemate in the peace process and assessments as to whether U.S. President Barack Obama will try to make a last stab at forcing the process along after the presidential election in November. Obama will meet Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday but it isn’t clear whether he will also be meeting Abbas in New York.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: President Abbas, as you know, the US has just signed a 38 billion dollar aid deal with Israel, one of the largest aid packages in US history.

The US government has done this, knowing it is completely illegal, under the Symington Amendment, which prevents the US government from providing any aid to any nuclear armed country which refuses to sign the NNPT (Israel won't) or refuses to allow inspections of their nuclear facilities (Israel won't).

As you are also aware, Israel wants territory, and by any means necessary, including approving of Jewish/Settler-only housing in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem, and ordering robust annexations of homes in which Palestinians had lived for generations.

Kerry is making the appropriate noises in order to "look good" to the International community; but at the end of the day, the US government is not now, nor rarely has been, an honest broker for peace between Israel and the Palestinians.

However, this is one guy who should be on your cell phone's speed dial right now, and that person is Vladimir Putin; if there is anyone right now who has a reputation for geopolitical integrity, it is Putin.

I think your pleading the Palestinian case with him may have some positive outcomes; but it certainly has to be better than having to listen to Kerry drone on about "concerns", when the US government will do absolutely nothing to cause Israel to move toward contemplating a comprehensive peace proposal.

UC Berkeley reinstates Palestine course, but tried to change content

UC Berkeley has reinstated a student-led class on the history of Palestine suspended on 13 September, following sustained outcry by students, members of faculty, lawyers and supporters of campus free speech and academic freedom.

More than 40 off-campus Israel-aligned groups – along with the campus’ Hillel chapter – had pressured the university and its outgoing chancellor, Nicholas Dirks, to censor the class.

The groups claimed it was a venue for “political indoctrination.”

There are indications that an Israeli government official and the heads of Israeli universities also acted to pressure the Berkeley administration.

Florida mosque arsonist shared extreme pro-Israel propaganda

The man accused of setting fire to the Islamic Center of Fort Pierce in Florida a week ago is an ardent supporter of Israel who labeled all forms of Islam as “radical.”

Joseph Michael Schreiber, a 32-year-old messianic Jew, was arrested at his home in St. Lucie, Florida, on Wednesday and charged with arson and a hate crime. Police say he confessed after his arrest.

His attack is part of a spate of anti-Muslim hate crimes since the start of the current US election season.

ISIS Overruns Syrian Army Base After US Bombings

In the defense of the Deir Ezzor Airport, the Syrian military has long depended on an army base in Jebel Tharda to repel ISIS advances. That base has been lost this weekend, after a disastrous series of US-led airstrikes killed a large number of Syrian troops defending the base, and ISIS quickly overran what was left.

For over 20 minutes, the coalition warplanes attacked the base. According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the attack killed at least 83 Syrian troops and wounded 120 others. The US Central Command claimed they thought the base belonged to ISIS.

It does now. With the forces decimated by the US attack, ISIS quickly overran the base. Syrian state media claimed an ongoing effort to recover the site, but it does not appear to have been successful yet, as ISIS managed to shoot down a Syrian warplane, flying out of Deir Ezzor Airport, over Jebel Tharda.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks as though this is just the outcome the US and Israel wanted to see happen here.

Syrian military declares U.S.-Russia-led ceasefire over

Syria’s military on Monday declared the seven-day initial period for a ceasefire brokered by the United States and Russia over, without indicating whether the truce would reinstated.

It said in a statement that “terrorist groups,” a term the Syrian government uses to refer to all insurgents fighting against it, had failed to commit to any of the provisions of the deal, and had used the ceasefire to rearm while violating it 300 times.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is precisely the response the US government was hoping for, after its bombing of Syrian troops at Deir Ezzor.

Were I a betting woman, I would not bet against many more incursions into Syria, against both Syrian and Russian troops, by the US military.

U.S., ISRAEL LAUNCH AIRSTRIKES ON SYRIAN GOVERNMENT FORCES - DIRECTLY SUPPORTING ISIS AND AL-QAEDA

Earlier today the Syrian Arab Army had announced that 1,000 fresh soldiers arrived in Deir Ezzor to liberate it from ISIS.

The U.S. planes came from Erbil in the Kurdish separatist region of Iraq.

The Syrian troops were holding positions on Jabal Tharda, a mountain that overlooks Deir Ezzor's airport. The mountain is now fully under Islamic State control. With this IS has firecontrol over the airport and the Deir Ezzor garrison as well as more than 150,000 civilians living under government protection are thereby cut off from supplies and any further reinforcements. Government forces have launched a counterattack to regain the vital position.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So let me get my head around the reality that the US is working with Israeli in supporting Isis and Al Qaeda in Syria: any questions?!?!?

And that performance by U.S. Ambassador Power at the UN on Saturday at the emergency meeting called by Russia over the incident was extraordinarily cringeworthy, to say the least, and engineered to try to get a rise out of the Russian Ambassador, Churkin; the only thing that happened was, at one point, he walked out of the room.

And if Power was going to elaborate on atrocities, how about the atrocities committed by the US/Israeli enabled and funded Isis and Al Qaeda?!?

TRANSFORMATION OF A SELF HATING JEW TO A TERRORIST

According to the ‘logic’ of the present day elders of zion I have always been a ‘self hating Jew’. This was merely because I refuse to hate anyone else … does that make any sense to you?

It seems that times have changed and new definitions have been added to the zio-dictionary … Now I am a terrorist. The reason being that I am a part of and supporter of the BDS Movement. Have you ever heard of a terrorist that refuses to kill? Have you heard of one that refuses to support those who do?? Now you have!

Ehud Barak: Netanyahu’s fight with Obama cost Israel $4.5 billion in defense aid

Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak said Benjamin Netanyahu cost Israel $4.5 billion in defense aid because of Netanyahu’s strained relations with President Barack Obama.

Barak’s latest criticism of Israel’s current prime minister came during an interview for Army Radio on Thursday in which Barak quantified for the first time claims he made recently — including in an op-ed published Wednesday in The Washington Post — about the signing that day of a Memorandum of Understanding for $38 billion of U.S. defense assistance to Israel over the coming 10 years.

“Had he handled it correctly, Netanyahu could have gotten another $4.5 billion,” Barak said.

Graham blasts Netanyahu for snubbing Congress in new MOU

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has “pulled the rug” from under pro-Israeli members of Congress by rushing to sign the new $38 billion 10-year “memorandum of understanding” with the Obama administration, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) said on Friday.

“Here is what I would tell Bibi: ‘When members of Congress come to Israel, you do a great job talking about the State of Israel’s needs and threats. Well, don’t tell us about all those needs and when we try to help you, you pull the rug from under us,'” Graham said in a conference call with American Jewish community leaders. “I think that is bad for Israel.”

York University fires employee for opposing genocide

Dear Mamdouh Shoukri,

I am appalled at the news that technician Nikolaos Balaskas has been fired from York University for posting anti-Zionist material on his Facebook page.

Zionism is a genocidal ideology. By definition, it seeks to establish a “Jewish State” on Palestinian land. The Zionist project requires the murder or expulsion of most or all Palestinians from their homeland, along with the destruction of Palestinian culture, which is a natural outgrowth of the people’s relationship to their land. This is genocide, physical and cultural, by any definition, including those prevailing under international law. International Law Professor Francis Boyle of the University of Illinois, and (Jewish) history professor Lawrence Davidson of West Chester University, have, taken together, provided the arguments and documentation proving the “Zionism is genocide” equation beyond a reasonable doubt.

Why has your university has fired an employee for opposing genocide?

Zionists plant “hate speech” on professor – then call the police

The entire incident appears to have been orchestrated (with the possible complicity of Facebook) to smear Professor Tony Hall, who had nothing to do with the offensive image, which was posted by FaceBook user “Glen Davidson” as a comment on a story at Hall’s FB page. Facebook’s initial refusal to remove the image, which gave B’nai Brith the traction it needed to create a scandal deceptively targeting Professor Hall, must be seen as suspicious, given that the image clearly meets FaceBook’s definition of sanctionable hate speech.

WOMEN SET SAIL TO FREE GAZA

Two vessels with all-female crews set sail for Gaza from Spain on Wednesday in an attempt to break the nine-year Israeli blockade on the coastal Mediterranean strip. The “Women’s Boat to Gaza” is the fourth of its kind, captained by women-only, with 30 female activists and high-ranking officials aboard the Arabic-named Zaytouna (“Olive”) and the Amal (“hope”).

The organization said in a statement the boats are on a course to pierce Israel’s maritime control over Gaza’s borders, and in doing so, raise awareness of conditions inside of the Strip.

“While our focus is on opposing the blockade against the Palestinian people of Gaza, we see this in the larger context of supporting the right to freedom of movement for all Palestinians,” the group said on their website. “The Occupation daily violates the rights of Palestinians to move freely around their country and to leave and return to their country, as guaranteed by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.”

9/11: 15 Years Of A Transparent Lie — Paul Craig Roberts

There are many conspiracy theories about 9/11. The US government’s own expanation of 9/11 is a conspiracy theory in which a few Saudi Arabians outwitted the American national security state.

Israel Employing Mercenary Fighters from Fatah Al-Sham Terrorists

"Israeli intelligence officers contact the militants, mostly form Fatah al-Sham, at Israel's border with Syria to gain preliminary information about them, then they ask them to communicate with these officers individually to go to the Israeli territories. The Israeli officers offer a large amount of money to these militants to join the new force to fight against the Syrian government," an informed sources told al-Safir. "Israel, with this project, does not want to form a simple intelligence group at border with Syria. They want to establish a new army of militants to fight against the Syrian government forces," they added. On Tuesday, Knesset member, Akram Hasson said Fatah al-Sham Front was bombing the Syrian Druze village of Khadr with Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman’s support and protection. The Israeli lawmaker specified that Israel was directly aiding the terrorist group in the battles on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights.

What's Behind the Israeli Report Claiming Palestinian President Abbas Was a KGB Spy?

The latest Israeli allegation against Abbas came in a report broadcast by Israel’s Channel 1 on Sept. 7, claiming that Abbas was an agent for the Soviet KGB when he was a member of Fatah’s Central Committee in 1983. According to the report, Abbas’ code name was "Krotov," and he was recruited during his Ph.D. studies in Moscow and served as a KGB agent in Syria. The Israeli allegation immediately sparked angry reactions from Palestinians, and many Palestinian officials protested. In a Sept. 8 statement to Agence France-Presse, presidential spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeineh said he considered the Israeli accusation part of an Israeli smear campaign against Abbas aimed at weakening the Palestinian position. Israel's most recent allegation against Abbas was not the first... Ahmed Yousef, former political adviser to the deputy chairman of Hamas' political bureau, told Al-Monitor, “These accusations will pave the way for more in the coming days.

Benjamin Netanyahu Added 100,000 Settlers. Now the U.S. Rewards Him With Largest Aid Package Ever.

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION on Wednesday signed a formal memorandum of understanding that would increase the annual military aid package to Israel, rewarding it with a record $38 billion over 10 years.

This increase in aid comes as the Benjamin Netanyahu-led Israeli government, which took office in 2008, has vastly expanded the network of illegal settlements deep into the Palestinian territories in East Jerusalem and the West Bank.

Shortly before Netanyahu took office, 474,000 Israeli settlers were living in these territories. By the end of 2014, the last time the Israeli government released comprehensive statistics on the matter, that number had grown to around 570,000.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That is precisely the point of these settlements, and where they are positioned; to make a contiguous Palestinian state impossible.

And talk about the Obama administration rewarding bad behaviour, in terms of the impunity with which Netanyahu has allowed those illegal settlements to be founded; this is absoflippinglutely unbelievable!!

ISRAËL VIOLATES THE CEASE-FIRE IN SYRIA AND LOSES TWO PLANES

On 13 September 2016, at 1 a.m., although the cease-fire had just come into force, the Israëli aviation attempted to destroy a combat position in the South of Syria and certain military installations near Damascus.

The Syrian Arab Army fired at and hit the planes with new generation missiles. One of the planes crashed in jihadist-held territory, the other managed to land in Israël.

Tsahal at first denied the two incidents, then recognised having violated Syrian air space and admitted that Syria had fired on their planes.

The available information does not enable us to know exactly what the Israêli planes were (F-15, F-16, or F-35), nor if the missiles were fired by Hezbollah or by the Syrian Arab Army, nor what type of missiles they were or who built them.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, whatever weapons which were fired at the Israeli fighters were able to target them with a very certain degree of precision; something upon which the IDF had not counted, in ordering the strike into sovereign Syrian territory.

After DCLeak posted a tranche of Powell emails hacked from the former secretary of state’s personal Gmail account, RT’s Caleb Maupin asked the State Department for comment on Powell's mention of Israel’s nukes. He was ignored. Meanwhile, the story has been virtually ignored by the media.

According to Judah Ari Gross of The Times of Israel, “Discussing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s March 2015 speech to Congress about the dangers posed by the Iranian nuclear deal, in an email he sent to US Democratic party donor Jeffrey Leeds, Powell wrote that he doubted the Iranian regime would use an atomic bomb even if it could get one, since “the boys in Tehran know Israel has 200, all targeted on Tehran, and we have thousands.” The email was published by theLobeLog foreign policy website.

Israel maintains a policy of so-called nuclear ambiguity, they will not publicly confirm or deny the existence of an atomic arsenal.

Facebook And Israel Officially Announce Collaboration To Censor Social Media Content

By Whitney Webb

Following Facebook’s censorship controversy over a world famous photograph of the Vietnam War, Facebook has agreed to “work together” with Israel’s government to censor content Israeli officials deem to be improper. Facebook officially announced the “cooperative” arrangement after a meeting took place between Israeli government ministers and top Facebook officials on September 11th. The Israeli government’s frenzied push to monitor and censor Facebook content it deems inappropriate follows the viral success of BDS, or Boycott, Divest, Sanctions, a global non-violent movement that works to expose Israeli human rights violations...

AMERICAN TAXPAYERS TO PAY MORE IN THE FUTURE TO KEEP APARTHEID ALIVE

When Yaakov Nagel, Israel’s acting national security adviser, was tasked with heading the team negotiating a new 10-year military aid package with the United States, Prime Minister Netanyahu set forth the guidelines: “If you reach $3.5 billion a year, you’ll get a gold medal,” Nagel recalled Wednesday, hours before signing the agreement in Washington. “If you get $3.3 billion you’ll get a silver medal; and if you get $3.1 billion you’ll get the bronze.”

Nagel brought home something in between silver and gold, finalizing a $38 billion 10-year agreement, made up of $3.3 billion a year in military aid and another $500 million a year for missile defense systems, which was previously handled separately.

But this Olympics-style competition was more than about money. It was also about two world leaders seeking vindication.

Senator: $38 Billion Israel Aid Deal Not Enough

In the 48 hours leading up to Israel and the US agreeing on a record $38 billion military aid deal, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R – SC) began to push hard against it, suggesting Congress could give Israel and even bigger aid package, and telling Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that Obama could “go F himself” if he didn’t like the larger aid.

Israel, ultimately, accepted the Obama deal, and also promised not to seek additional funds from Congress. That doesn’t mean Graham has given up, however, and he’s insisted Congress isn’t bound by this new deal, and free to give Israel all the extra billions they feel like.

Sen. Graham now says he intends to introduce a $1.5 billion additional aid deal for Israel just for this year, suggesting that Congress would be free to keep throwing similar “emergency supplementals” at Israel every year if they want to, and saying he believes there’s a lot of support for it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Senator Lindsey Graham: your "alleged" South Carolinian constituents are looking at this attempted maneuver, and wishing that you were desiring to do as much for them as you are trying to do for Tel Aviv.

Why don't you please retire as Senator,move to Israel, and run for the Knesset?!?

Because with all of your coddling such a wretchedly apartheid, self-proclaimed theocracy with nuclear weapons (to whom all US aid is actually illegal, under the Symington Amendment), that has to be the ultimate game plan, right?!?

ISRAEL BARS AMERICAN JOURNALIST FROM ENTERING GAZA CITING ‘PRO-PALESTINIAN VIEWS'

Requesting an explanation, Paz said: “Please explain if this is the correct professional approach of a team of journalists arriving to cover the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Isn’t supporting ‘Palestine’s resistance’ already taking side(s) in the most biased way can be (sic) imagined?”

“US issues biggest military aid package ever to Israel, $38 billion to ensure apartheid & brutal occupation continues,” reads the second tweet shared by Paz in his email. “Please explain if this too falls under professional, unbiased journalism, or is it pro-Palestinian activism,” the Israeli foreign press chief asks.

Last week Paz told Martin that her press pass to enter the Palestinian Gaza Strip was put on hold pending an investigation by his department about teleSUR cooperating with Iran’s state-run media outlet, HispanTV, a country branded an “enemy state” by Israel.

Netanyahu’s Ethnic Cleansing Blood Libel

Bibi Netanyahu’s latest outrage is this video in which he ever so innocently professes bafflement that Palestinians would oppose Israeli settlements. Why, he asks, if 2-million “Arabs” (the actual number is 1.8-million) live in Israel proper, can’t Jews live in Palestine?

There is a wee-small problem with this analogy: approximately 600,000 Israeli Jews live in settlements. But they have lived in them for at best a generation, while Palestinian have lived in Israel for centuries. The vast bulk of settlers moved to Palestine since 1967, while Palestinians have lived in Israel over a vastly longer span. Nor have Palestinians displaced anyone over this period. While Israeli settlers have literally stolen the land out from under the Palestinian natives.

It is my intent to unravel that in this article and to speak to common people and not just the intellectual elite...

The Human Rights Of The Settler

Just a few weeks after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu claimed
that he cares about the rights and lives of Palestinians in Gaza more than the
Palestinian leadership does, he posted a new video message on his Facebook wall, arguing that any future dismantling of Jewish settlements in the West Bank would amount to “ethnic cleansing.” He went on to intimate that insofar as the U.S. and other western countries support the uprooting of Israeli settlements as part of an agreement with the Palestinians, they were, in effect, supporting the cleansing of Jews.<'//blockquote>

Israel eyeing Gaza-bound 'women's flotilla' setting sail from Barcelona

Despite the recent reconciliation of ties between Israel and Turkey, it appears that the controversial Gaza-bound flotilla movement has yet to subside.

An activist flotilla sailing under the banner "Mujeres Rumbo a Gaza" (Women's Boat to Gaza) was set to anchor off from Barcelona on Wednesday evening toward the Gaza Strip.

The small fleet of two vessels was slated to carry dozens of women from various nations, including Israel, with the aim of breaching and boycotting Israel's naval blockade of the coastal Palestinian enclave.

Meanwhile, Israel was prepared to thwart the flotilla from illegally infringing on the maritime blockade of Gaza, which was established in 2007 following the terrorist group Hamas's takeover of the Strip.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These women need to be prepared for getting physically battered, and ultimately killed, by the IDF, no matter how peaceful they are, to insure that the Israeli blockade of Gaza continues, unabated.

And when that happens, I hope to heaven that several people on those boats with cell cameras capture those images, and make them go viral.

This is what Israeli officials are terrified of; that the brutality against Palestinians and pro-Palestinian supporters is documented, and witnessed in an incontrovertible way, because they know that this blockade is both morally and legally wrong.

Report: US, Israel Agree on $38 Billion Military Aid Deal

Israel’s Channel 2 has today reported that Israeli officials have accepted the most recent US military aid package, which will see them receiving some $38 billion over the next decade. Israeli officials are said to be eager to finalize it, and it is expected to be signed in the next few days.

This comes just a day after a report in the Washington Post claiming that the deal was being held up by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R – SC), who was planning to advance his own, slightly larger military aid bill through the Senate and accused Obama of trying to take over appropriations duties that are rightfully Congress’.

Graham says Benjamin Netanyahu warned him he was holding up the deal, and that he told Netanyahu to tell the Obama Administration “to go F themselves.” The White House was said to be reluctant to sign the deal with Graham so outraged by it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is fascinating to me that this Congress and President can so blithely throw money at a wretchedly apartheid, self-proclaimed theocracy with nuclear weapons, while being oblivious the real pain imposed by Obama's disastrous economic policies here at home, which are certainly bearing "fruit", as evidenced from this headline reported at zerohedge.com yesterday:

Tent Cities Full Of Homeless People Are Booming In Cities All Over America As Poverty Spikes''

These people have become marginalized; made to feel irrelevant; and become absolutely lost to a national leadership thoroughly fixated on throwing money at a foreign leader like Netanyahu, who has done absolutely nothing to deserve it, rather than fixing the massive, looming economic problems here at home.

US to sign record $38bn military aid deal with Israel – report

The US has reportedly agreed a $38 billion package to deliver military aid to Israel over the next 10 years, with the pact expected to be signed “within days.” The deal will become the biggest pledge of US military assistance to another country in history.

The new aid package will see Israel receive $3.8 billion per year from Washington, an increase of $700 million from the current $3.1 billion, sources told Reuters. However, the figure fell short of the annual $4.5 billion that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had been seeking.

But the problem facing Jewish student activists isn’t BDS or intersectionality: it’s the occupation, and the Jewish establishment’s support for an unjust status quo.

Facebook Is Collaborating With the Israeli Government to Determine What Should Be Censored

LAST WEEK, A MAJOR censorship controversy erupted when Facebook began deleting all posts containing the iconic photograph of the Vietnamese “Napalm Girl” on the ground that it violated the company’s ban on “child nudity.” Facebook even deleted a post from the prime minister of Norway, who posted the photograph in protest of the censorship. As outrage spread, Facebook ultimately reversed itself — acknowledging “the history and global importance of this image in documenting a particular moment in time” — but this episode illustrated many of the dangers I’ve previously highlighted in having private tech companies like Facebook, Twitter, and Google become the arbiters of what we can and cannot see.

Israel denies claim Syrian forces shot down its aircraft in disputed Golan Heights during fragile ceasefire

Israel has denied the Syrian government's claim to have shot down an Israeli fighter jet and drone at the start of a fragile seven-day truce in the country's civil war.

The Israel Defence Forces (IDF) immediately refuted the report, saying a Syrian anti-aircraft battery had shot at its aircraft but missed their target.

"Early this morning, two missiles were launched from Syria after the IAF targeted Syrian artillery positions," a spokesperson said. "IDF aircraft were not harmed."

Acting national security adviser Jacob Nagel left Israel Monday night after meeting U.S. envoy Dan Shapiro, and is expected to meet U.S. National Security Adviser Susan Rice to sign 10-year, $38-billion memorandum of understanding.

Jacob Nagel, acting head of the National Security Council, landed in Washington D.C. on Tuesday ahead of a meeting with U.S. National Security Adviser Susan Rice at which he is expected to sign an agreement on a new military aid package.

Nagel will hold at the White House that will deal mainly with last-minute coordination and the wording of a joint statement that will be published by the two parties. The signing ceremony is expected to take place on Wednesday.

In accordance with the deal, which the two countries have been negotiating since November 2015, the United States will provide Israel with $38 billion in military aid over the next decade, $5 billion of them will be dedicated to the development of missile defense systems.

Will Israel be put on trial for war crimes?

So far, only three Israeli soldiers have been indicted on a relatively minor charge – of looting – even though Israel’s 51-day offensive, named Protective Edge, in July and August 2014 resulted in some 2,250 Palestinian deaths. The vast majority were civilians, including 551 children. The Israeli military exonerated itself late last month in 13 cases it had been investigating. These included lethal attacks on three Palestinian families, the shelling of a hospital and a United Nations shelter for civilians, and the bombing of Gaza’s main power plant. It declined to investigate another 80 complaints.
Note: Put them all in prison for life!

Netanyahu’s Land-Grab Strategy

Behind the smokescreen of the broader Mideast chaos, Israel pursues a strategy of gobbling up Palestinian lands to establish de facto control of the West Bank while confining indigenous Arabs to isolated cantons, explains Alon Ben-Meir.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his coalition partners, however, are not concerned about the prospective dire repercussions of settlement activity. They put the sanctity of the land above any other consideration, and view the settlement enterprise as the prerequisite to repossessing the entire historic “land of Israel.”

When about 100 supporters of Palestinian human rights gathered in a hearing room at City Hall to voice their objections to an anti-1st amendment free speech resolution which opposes BDS, they didn’t expect a free inquiry into what BDS was or why this form of non-violent protest was a historically time honored form of protesting injustice going back, in American history, to the Boston Tea Party.

"First, Israeli warplanes bombed Syrian government's positions near Quneitra to back the terrorists of Fatah al-Sham (the newly-formed al-Qaeda-linked terrorists group previously known as the al-Nusra Front) who had attacked the Syrian army positions to prevail over the government's position," the Arabic service of RT reported. "After Fatah al-Sham's attacks were repelled by the Syrian soldiers, seven Israeli ambulances entered the battlefield and transferred a number of wounded terrorists to Israeli hospitals in the occupied Golan Heights," RT added.

Netanyahu 'ethnic cleansing' comment against Palestinians draws U.S. rebuke

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Friday said the Palestinians wanted to form a state devoid of a Jewish population and termed it "ethnic cleansing", drawing sharp criticism from the United States.

In a video message, Netanyahu said in reference to the removal of Israeli settlements in the West Bank, "The Palestinian leadership actually demands a Palestinian state with one pre-condition: No Jews. There's a phrase for that: It's called ethnic cleansing. And this demand is outrageous."

Western-backed Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has stated that a future Palestinian state would not permit a single Israeli settler to live within its borders.

After viewing the video clip that was circulated on social media, U.S. State Department spokeswoman Elizabeth Trudeau said at a briefing in Washington that the Israeli leader's words were "inappropriate and unhelpful."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu; so what, please, do we call the brisk annexation of Palestinians from the West Bank and East Jerusalem, coupled with Israeli serial genocide against them?!?

IS THAT, sir, not "ethnic cleansing"?!?

Blaming the Palestinians for the wrongs done against them by the Israeli state and military is not working anymore, sir; I thought you would want to know!!

Odigo Workers Received Warning of 9/11 Attacks

Odigo, the instant messaging service, says that two of its workers received messages two hours before the Twin Towers attack on September 11 predicting the attack would happen, and the company has been cooperating with Israeli and American law enforcement, including the FBI, in trying to find the original sender of the message predicting the attack.

Micha Macover, CEO of the company, said the two workers received the messages and immediately after the terror attack informed the company's management, which immediately contacted the Israeli security services, which brought in the FBI.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And the FBI never followed the lead to find out who sent those warnings!

All 9/11 Airports Serviced by One Israeli Owned Company

The point of the article was that ICTS knew shoe bomber Richard Reid was dangerous, but allowed him on board a flight from Tel Aviv to Paris. Maybe they did and maybe they didn't. But the idea that an Israeli owned company had inside access to the airport used to launch an abortive terror attack brought to mind the strange message Odigo Systems, another Israeli owned company with offices near the World Trade Towers, received that warned of the impending attacks before the hijacked planes had even left the ground.

Then there was the story of crotch-bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who was allowed to board Northwest flight 253 from Amsterdam on Christmas Day 2009. And again, gate security that allowed him to pass was ICTS!

Mahmoud Abbas and the Tale of KGB Moles

Western media have been making the most of the claim that Mahmoud Abbas, the President of the Palestinian Authority, was a KGB agent in Damascus in the 1980s. The news broke on Israel's Channel 1 and was reported by major media outlets globally.

Israeli researchers with the Truman Institute at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Isabella Ginor and Gideon Remez said they came across a document implicating Abbas while studying the famed Mitrokhin archive, smuggled into Britain in 1992 by KGB defector Vasily Mitrokhin.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Anything produced by Israel is automatically suspect, but in this case, the story is fairly weak. Mitrokhin claimed he made handwritten notes at work and smuggled them out of the KGB offices in his shoes and pockets, every night for 12 years. Given extremely tight security procedures at, probably the most secretive organization in the world, how credible is his claim? Was he not making his notes from memory in the safety of his home, rather than at work? And what exactly is in those handwritten notes that are still classified by MI5?

French army has a secret plan to ethnically cleanse Muslims from the country with help from the Israeli military, claims political commentator

The French army has a secret plan to ethnically cleanse Muslims from France with the help of Israeli military 'specialists', according to a controversial political commentator.

Washington has berated Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for using the term “ethnic cleansing” to describe the Palestinian Authority’s aspirations to create its own state, saying Netanyahu’s choice of words is “inappropriate and unhelpful.”

In a video message posted on Netanyahu’s FB account, the PM that he has “always been perplexed by the notion” that the “Jewish community in Judea and Samaria [the Israeli name for the West Bank] is an obstacle for peace.”

He went on to imply that requesting the dismantlement of illegal Israeli settlements on Palestine territory constitutes an “outrageous demand” equivalent to a call for “ethnic cleansing.”

Israel Starts Home Demolitions in Syrian Golan, Plans Illegal Annexation, Opens “Corridor” for Syrian Al Qaeda

Israeli occupation authorities in the occupied Syrian Golan Heights, on Wednesday, for the first time demolished a home, claiming it was built without permission. The demolition and claims the house was built without permission violates Israel’s obligations under international law, according to which an occupying power must assure that administration in occupied territories adhere, to the greatest possible degree, to the law of the occupied country’s territory.

Israel has, however, enforced new Hebrew as official administrative language, denies building permits and engages in other violations of international law that aim at oppressing the Arab population and culture and Syrian administration in the occupied Golan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is very simple; Israel wants to steal more Syrian territory, and by any means necessary.

They are doing precisely to the Syrian residents of Occupied Golan Heights what they do to Palestinians in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

Look for some major Israeli incursions into Syria when Tel Aviv thinks no one is looking.

Discounting the Official Narrative as the absurdity it so clearly is, there are just two organisations on the entire planet with the expertise, assets, access and political protection necessary to have both executed 9/11 and effected its cover-up to date (ie the means). Both are Intelligence Agencies - the CIA and the Israeli Mossad whose motives were arguably the most compelling. Those motives dovetailed perfectly with the Neocon PNAC agenda, with it's explicitly stated need for "...a catastrophic and catalyzing event - like a new Pearl Harbor" [1] in order to mobilise US public opinion for already planned wars, the effects of which would be to destroy Israel's enemies.

Israeli Online Attack Service ‘vDOS’ Earned $600,000 in Two Years

vDOS — a “booter” service that has earned in excess of $600,000 over the past two years helping customers coordinate more than 150,000 so-called distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks designed to knock Web sites offline — has been massively hacked, spilling secrets about tens of thousands of paying customers and their targets.

The vDOS database, obtained by KrebsOnSecurity.com at the end of July 2016, points to two young men in Israel as the principal owners and masterminds of the attack service, with support services coming from several young hackers in the United States.

Multiple vDOS tech support tickets were filed by customers who complained that they were unable to order attacks on Web sites in Israel. Responses from the tech support staff show that the proprietors of vDOS are indeed living in Israel and in fact set the service up so that it was unable to attack any Web sites in that country

CIA Chief Doubts Syria and Iraq ‘Can Be Put Back Together Again’

Speaking in an interview with the CTC Sentinel, CIA Director John Brennan expressed doubt about the viability of either Iraq or Syria as united nations in the near-term, saying he doubts whether either nation can be put back together in his lifetime.

Brennan has made similar comments in the past with respect to Syria, doubting that after so many years of civil war the country can return to a completely united single state, despite this being the stated policy goal of the US. This is the first time Brennan has made similar comments toward Iraq.

In both cases, as Brennan noted, there has been substantial bloodletting, and the wars have left massive amounts of sectarian tensions. He doubted whether a central government in either nation could ever really “govern fairly” on a national basis.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I find it deliciously ironic that Brennan is championing (without coming out and using the word) the balkanization of Iraq and Syria; these are goals the Israeli government has had for a long time for both nations, and it looks as though this part of Israel's "to do"list in the Middle East may be on the way to getting realized, thanks to Brennan's "easing the way" with his statements.

Such a balkanization/redraw of the Middle East would make the resulting areas smaller, less defensible, and easier to control, geopolitically.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Agt is absolutely correct on this issue.

And he is not even touching the extrajudicial assassinations of Palestinians; the torture against Palestinian children in Israeli jails; and the indefinite detentions of Palestinian prisoners.

GAZA’S UNDERGROUND SIEGE

Israel is planning to build a massive concrete wall which will extend below ground along the Gaza Strip border, Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper has revealed. The barrier is aimed at combating the threat posed by Hamas tunnels crossing into the country from Gaza.
The wall, which will stretch along the 96km (60 mile) border around the Gaza Strip, will extend several dozen meters below the ground, and will also be present above the ground. It is estimated to cost US$568 million.

The costly plan – aimed at tackling Hamas terror tunnels – was cleared for publication by Israel’s military censor, according to Ynet, a website affiliated with Yedioth Ahronoth.The wall will be the third defense system of its kind to be erected along the border.

The first 60km (37 mile) barrier was constructed in 1994, following the Oslo Accords. The second was built following Israel’s decision to disengage from Gaza in 2005. However, neither system proved successful in combating the threat of attack tunnels.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The tunnels are primarily used to smuggle food and other needed supplies to the people of Gaza.

Has Israel Effectively Colonized the United States?

Today, Israel has effective control of US policy in the Mideast, and similar goals. Much has already been written about Israel’s control of Congress. Israel is now edging towards control over the US Executive Branch, with both presidential candidates supported by billionaires whose #1 agenda is Israel (Saban and Adelson). The Supreme Court will be one-third Jewish, and justices have community ties and families. As Israel demonstrated through its successful intimidation of Judge Goldstone, jurists are human and everyone has their price.

Former Jew Supports Open Debate on the Holocaust

If I say the Great War never happened, I don't go to prison. If I say the Civil War never happened, I don't go to prison. If I say passenger jets did not bring down the two World Trade Centers, I don't go to prison.

But when I ask for a single wartime photograph of a homicidal gas chamber in Israel, and a dozen other countries, I put myself at risk for prison time. This is manipulation, this is mendacity - and I stand opposed to both.

As an American citizen, proud of my 1st Amendment rights, I want to know the truth and to have the right to ask any question...

ISRAEL TO DEPLOY MACHINE GUN-EQUIPPED AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES ALONG GAZA BORDER

Israel is set to use fully autonomous unmanned vehicles along the border with the Gaza Strip, according to a report published by FoxNews.com.

While currently unarmed, the Israeli military plans to add machine guns to the so-called Border Protector Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs) by “the beginning of next year”.

An unnamed Israeli military official told the website: “This is the future – the border is a very dangerous place… Sending unmanned vehicles to do these patrols means that troops’ lives are not at risk.”

According to the report, the Israeli army has worked with defence giant Elbit Systems to convert Ford pick-up trucks into UGVs by adding “specialised remote driving technology”, along with “four driving cameras and a 360-degree observation camera.”

UGV testing reportedly began in July 2015 and the trucks “became operational in February [2016].”

ISRAEL SHELLS SYRIA, HEZBOLLAH IS PREPARING A RESPONSE

In the morning it was reported that Israeli bombers began shelling the border with Syria from the Golan Heights, territory occupied by Israel. In addition, the Israeli government issued a statement in which it blames Syria for the shelling.

Despite the fact that there are no victims among the civilian population, these bombings hamper the liberation of Syrian territory of terrorists from ISIS, and similar groups.

The New Anti-Semitism and its Background— An Analysis by Lawrence Davidson

It has been 71 years since the end of the Holocaust. Initially, the world took that horror show as a serious lesson, and the international community created laws against acts of genocide. Those who, even after the public revelation of the Nazi killing fields, still held anti-Semitic opinions kept them to themselves, and as time passed, this particular form of bigotry seemed to be fading away. And, indeed, that might have been its fate if it weren’t for the strange fact that some of the victims of anti-Semitism, in this case a subset of the Jews known as Zionists (those devoted to the founding of a Jewish state), proved susceptible to catching the disease of their oppressors. The Zionists took up their own form of virulent bigotry against Palestinians, and in reaction, this encouraged a new round of anti-Semitism.

This is the result of fear, intolerance and hatred of life… is easier kill and forget .. than to take care and keep .. a home for 5 souls that possibly no one will remember .. if somebody kills an innocent life .. what can we hope for? This was an act of our protectors, the police and agents. but They prefer a world with out compromise and a comfort zone .. and live there rather than go out and see that it’s our responsibility. They prefer to erase than give our time our life our love .. this way I think that it is better to empty this earth of human beings … especially this class of people .. peace to our baby’s!

California state passes bill barring Israel’s boycott by businesses

The US state of California has passed a bill that would penalize companies engaged in boycotting the Israeli regime, prompting pro-Palestinian activists to slam the legislation as a breach of free speech.

The AB 2844 bill, which was passed this week in the California State Assembly by a 69-1 vote and must be signed or vetoed by Democratic Governor Jerry Brown by the end of the month, would prevent companies participating in the Israeli boycott from receiving state contracts worth $100,000 or more, RT reported Saturday.

This agreement undermines internationally sanctioned Palestinian rights and aspirations.

Ex-Israeli general admits he was 'commander of occupation’

A former high-ranking Israeli military figure has described the Tel Aviv regime as the "champion" of the occupation that has turned into an "art" form.

“We brought the occupation to a level of art. We are the world champions of occupation. I was head of Central Command. The commander of the occupation,” Major General Gadi Shamni, the former head of the Israeli army’s Central Command and a former military attaché in the United States, said in a speech at the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya on Wednesday.

Elsewhere in his remarks, he claimed that the "only acceptable solution" to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict "is a separation agreement from the Palestinians," because, he said, the "Palestinians will not accept the continuation of the endless Israeli occupation."

Retired general calling Israel ‘world champion of occupation’ sparks outrage

Former OC Central Command Maj-Gen (res) Maj.-Gen. (res.) Gadi Shamni’s characterization of Israel as “bringing occupation to an art form” angered politicians on the Right on Wednesday.

Speaking at the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya, Shamni talked about his time in charge of Central Command when he was responsible for the West Bank, and describing himself as “the occupation general.”

“We are world champions of occupation, and we’ve brought it to an art form,” Shamni said, “and we have to ask ourselves, is that what we want to be?”

Shamni said that Israel will never agree to jeopardize its security interests, while the Palestinians will never accept an “endless occupation,” so the only solution is agreed-upon separation between the sides.

Israel should take calculated risks to improve its strategic position, he added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to Environmental Protection Minister Ze'ev Elkin: there were people living on what became Israel before the Israeli nation was declared: they are called Palestinians.

Here are images of Palestinian coinage, demonstrating that Palestine existed long before it was declared the nation of Israel.

Images for palestine coins

That Major-General Shamni should be vilified for stating the obvious is a true demonstration of how wretchedly apartheid Israeli has become in the 21st century.

Tell President Obama: We need an investigation!

In 1999, Mahmoud Shaalan, a Palestinian-American, was born in Tampa, Florida. In 2006, he moved with his family back to their ancestral village, just north of Ramallah.

Six months ago, he was shot dead by Israeli soldiers.

After he was shot, eyewitnesses said that soldiers stripped Mahmoud’s body, and left him to bleed to death on the road for more than two hours, preventing an ambulance from providing medical attention.

We don’t know the circumstances relating to Mahmoud’s death. But we can, and we should. Mahmoud was a U.S. citizen, yet not one public official at the White House or State Department has publicly called for an investigation into his death.

So we need to raise our voices. We’re coming together with our allies at the American Friends Service Committee, the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, American Muslims for Palestine and many others and calling on President Obama to launch an investigation into the death of Mahmoud Shaalan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"You people just don't understand! It's okay for Israel to kill Americans! Didn't you learn that from Israel's attack on the USS Liberty, or when Israel gunned down that kid from New York, Furkan Doğan, on the Mavi Marmara?

Israel 'approves 464 settlement homes in West Bank'

Israel has approved the construction of 285 new homes at Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank, according to the settlement watchdog Peace Now.

A 234-unit nursing home in Elkana, 30 houses in Beit Arye and 20 in Givat Zeev got the go-ahead on Tuesday.

Retrospective permits were also issued for 179 existing homes in Ofarim.

The US said it was "deeply concerned" and warned that settlement expansion posed a "very serious and growing threat" to peace with the Palestinians.

US court throws out $655 million verdict against Palestinian Authority

In February 2015, a jury awarded plaintiffs, 11 American families whose relatives were victims of the attacks, $218.5 million of the original $1 billion dollars sought in damages.

Damages in cases filed under the Anti-Terrorism Act are automatically tripled, making the total the PA would have been required to pay $655.5 million.

But the federal appeals court in New York found on Wednesday that the US federal district court in Manhattan lacked the jurisdiction to try the civil case.

The case had been initiated by the lawfare group Shurat HaDin in 2004.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israeli Shurat - HaDin is an agency supported by Netanyahu's office and Israeli Knesset to engage in "lawfare" as a device to bankrupt all adversaries of Israel using US courts.

This is a case of Justice turned upside down when the forces of military occupiers are suing the occupied victims using the power of US courts.
