Watch: Palestinian Killed By Israeli Occupation Force Soldiers

A Palestinian man died after he was beaten by Israeli soldiers in the occupied West Bank city of Jericho early Thursday.

Yasin al-Saradih, 33, was arrested from his house at approximately 2 am, Eid Barahmeh, head of the Palestinian prisoners club in Jericho, told the Israeli newspaper Haaretz.

Israeli forces notified the family of al-Saradih’s death two hours later.

The Israeli military changed its story about the events surrounding al-Saradih’s death after a video emerged showing soldiers striking him.

The video shows a number of soldiers gathered around al-Saradih, some apparently beating him while he is on the ground. They then drag his body away. The video does not show al-Saradih posing any threat to them.

EARLY DAYS OF NAZISM, HERE AND THERE

All these stories and events have one thing in common. It is the racist Zionist Jewish view of non-Jews as goys, children of a lesser God, and untermenschen! Was not this the defining feature of Nazism? Isn’t this the defining feature of Israel?

US weighs Sheldon Adelson offer to fund Jerusalem embassy

The Trump administration is considering an offer from Republican mega-donor Sheldon Adelson to pay for at least part of a new U.S. embassy in Jerusalem, four U.S. officials told The Associated Press.

Lawyers at the State Department are looking into the legality of accepting private donations to cover some or all of the embassy costs, the officials said. The discussions are occurring as the administration plans a ribbon-cutting for a scaled-down, temporary embassy that will open in May — more than a year ahead of schedule.

Canadian MPs Take Lobby-Sponsored Trips to Israel

These trips are not designed to assist Canada’s elected representatives better understand the issues facing the Middle East; they are merely gifts to government officials, and sometimes to their families, to create both a pro-Israel bias and feeling of indebtedness on the part of the officials.

Now that the US has been sucked dry by Tel Aviv, they are fastening their fangs on Canada!

The Crumbling Holocaust: an Israeli Perspective

Holocaust indoctrination has spread widely beyond Israel’s border, Ilani posits. “In America, as in many other parts of the world, children in recent decades have learned about the Holocaust from an early age. It’s basically perceived as the formative event of the modern era, against which the central political values of our age were shaped.” Sarcastically he adds, “suffice it to try to imagine how people reviled their political adversaries a century ago, when the words ‘Nazi’ or ‘fascist’ still had no meaning.”

Palestinian Man Dies After Israeli Troops Beat and Kick Him

A Palestinian died while being arrested by Israeli soldiers Thursday night, with security camera footage capturing his beating at their hands.

Security cameras captured video of Israeli Defense Force soldiers kicking and beating a Palestinian identified as Yassin al-Saradih repeatedly; medical examiners later pronounced him dead. Al-Saradih is from Jericho, a city in the West Bank, where he died.

According to the Palestinian Prisoner's Society, Saradih, 36, died shortly after the beating. The organization said he sustained multiple seizures while IDF troops fired heavy amounts of tear gas into a crowd he was in prior to his arrest and death.

US embassy moving to Jerusalem on Israel's independence day

The United States plans to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on 14 May, the 70th anniversary of Israel's independence, a US official confirmed on Friday.

In December, US President Donald Trump recognised Jerusalem as Israel's capital, and signalled Washington's intention to relocate its embassy.

Flashback: Israel violates conditions for admission to the United Nations

Israel was accepted into the United Nations on condition that it accept the Right of Return of the Palestinian refugees. Admission of Israel to membership in the United Nations (General Assembly Resolution 273 of May 11, 1949 ) requires Israel to comply with General Assembly Resolution 194 of December 11, 1948 and Israel stated it agreed to comply with this resolution.

Nikki Haley: the U.S. Embarrassment at the United Nations

Her most recent foray into the world of head-scratching nonsense occurred on Tuesday, February 20. She basically, in her most eloquent way (not!), told the Palestinian government that she wouldn’t ‘shut up’, as was very appropriately suggested to her. She suggested that the Palestinians take “…the path of negotiation and compromise”.

One wonders what color the sky is on Haley’s planet. Her disconnect from reality is so severe that it’s a wonder she is able to string two words together coherently (she seldom makes it much past two). Why, one might reasonably ask, is it always the Palestinians who have to compromise? Why is no demand ever made on Israel?

Sheriff-tied political committee accepts money from convicted felon Scott Israel booster convicted in tax evasion, gun cases

PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. - A political committee supporting Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel has raised $96,000 so far, much of it at an April fundraiser for Israel at developer and garbage company owner Ron Bergeron's ranch.

One of those leading the money list is developer Yoram Izhak, who is listed on campaign filings for "Citizens for Effective Law Enforcement" as giving $5,000 personally, with another $15,000 coming from companies listed at the building he owns in North Miami.

But what may be troubling for Broward County's top cop is that Izhak is also a convicted felon who was indicted 10 years ago in a massive organized crime case.

The crime ring was known as "The Corporation" or the "Cuban Mafia" and was allegedly involved in cocaine trafficking, arson, gambling and murder.

mORE DRONES HEADED TO SOUTH KOREA

Recent reports by South Korean news media claim that the US will deploy attack drones to the Korean Peninsula in the next few months.

Twelve attack drones that can target North Korean leaders and military targets will be deployed in March or April, South Korean newspaper Chosun Ilbo reported this week.

According to the report, a hangar has already been constructed for the Gray Eagle drones. In addition, support facilities and personnel have reportedly already arrived at the US air base at Kunsan on the west coast.

The General Atomics MQ-1C Gray Eagle is an unmanned aircraft system developed by General Atomics Aeronautical Systems for the US Army. The Gray Eagle, which has an 18-yard wingspan, can conduct various missions including attack, reconnaissance, surveillance and infiltration. Its 248-mile range gives it enough reach to cover most of North Korean territory.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF in fact these reports are true, North Korea is still in play as a target for US military action against it later this year.

If the US takes offensive action right after the games, China will be forced to support North Korea militarily.

IDF, US troops get ready for drill to simulate massive missile attack on Israel

The exercise will largely be performed through advanced computer simulations, though it will also include some real-world activities.

In total, some 4,500 soldiers from the two militaries will take part in the exercise — 2,500 of them from the United States’ European Command (US EUCOM) and 2,000 from the Israel Defense Forces. This is a substantial increase from the 2016 exercise, in which some 3,200 soldiers took part.

The Juniper Cobra exercise is scheduled to begin on March 4 and will formally run until March 15, though some American troops will stay in Israel and continue training with the IDF until the end of the month, the army said.

The threat from ballistic and guided missiles is one of the most significant threats facing Israel, and Israeli officials say it is growing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One false flag, to be blamed on either Lebanon's Hezbullah or Iran, will kick of a major Middle East war, with American troops already in place for battle.

And note the timing of the exercise: it starts precisely when the AIPAC conference kicks off kicks off in DC, which is 4 March to 6 March.

I do not believe that the timing of this exercise is a coincidence; with Netanyahu expected to be indicted for corruption, he may well be moving the timing ahead for such a false flag to be put in place, to distract from his legal woes, and give him some bloody shirts to wave about at AIPAC, as the justification for going into Lebanon, Iran, or perhaps both.

Trump’s ambassador says the unspeakable: Uprooting settlers could ’cause civil war’

Last Sunday, the U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman said the unspeakable behind closed doors to American Jewish leaders (as reported by Israeli television).

[T]he settlers are going nowhere. The uprooting of hundreds of thousands of settlers could cause a civil war in Israel.

The comment was a depth charge against the two-state solution– from a former bankruptcy lawyer who has helped fund the settlements. And leading liberal Zionists have pushed back. Jeremy Ben-Ami of J Street wrote angrily that the Trump administration and the settlers were “dragging Israelis and Palestinians further into a one-state nightmare.”

Failed British politician hired by leading Israel lobbyist

In between working for the weapons industry, Britain’s top pro-Israel advocate Stuart Polak is known to give charities a helping hand. Rivals can even benefit from his benevolent deeds, judging by one barely noticed addition to his entourage.

Although Polak has supported the Conservative Party for decades, he recently came to the “rescue” of a Labour Party politician who had been abandoned by voters.

Natascha Engel, the politician in question, lost her parliamentary seat in last year’s general election. Since then, she has been appointed to the advisory board of Polak’s consultancy firm TWC Associates.

The firm’s clients include Israel’s Elbit Systems, a manufacturer of drones and white phosphorus and other munitions which Israel has used while attacking Gaza.

Why BDS movement deserves a Nobel prize

When Norwegian lawmaker Bjørnar Moxnes nominated the Palestinian-led boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement for the Nobel Peace Prize earlier this month, he called it an effort towards “stopping an ascendent, racist and right-wing politics sweeping too much of our world.”

Moxnes heads Rødt (Red) Party, one of several relatively small groups on the left of Norway’s political spectrum. The party won enough votes to have a member in parliament for the first time last fall.

It was a significant gain for Norway’s left while the lackluster vision of the more mainstream Labor Party was blamed in part for a narrow victory by a coalition of right-wing parties at the polls.

With a seat in parliament came new possibilities for promoting Rødt’s platform which supports a full “economic, cultural and academic boycott of Israel.”

Making ends meet on Gaza’s streets

Al-Duhadar is a street vendor who sells turmos – a lupin bean snack often sold in market stalls. The snack takes preparation: the beans are soaked over 24 hours before being cooked for a couple of hours and then seasoned with salt and cumin and drizzled with lemon. It’s cheap, healthy and portable and an ideal product for street vendors for whom mobility is important.

Mobility allows al-Duhadar the luxury of chasing his custom. And on this particular January morning, the custom was there to be chased. A demonstration had been called to protest the US decision to cut funding for the UN’s Relief and Works Agency, UNRWA, that caters to the needs for Palestinian refugees.

The decision will have disastrous results for the Gaza Strip where 1.3 out of 2 million Palestinians are registered refugees and some one million people rely on UNRWA for food aid and other basic necessities.

AP sources: Adelson offers to help pay for Jerusalem embassy

The Trump administration is considering an offer from Republican mega-donor Sheldon Adelson to pay for at least part of a new U.S. embassy in Jerusalem, four U.S. officials told The Associated Press.

Lawyers at the State Department are looking into the legality of accepting private donations to cover some or all of the embassy costs, the administration officials said. The discussions are occurring as the new embassy clears its final bureaucratic hurdles. On Thursday, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson ended weeks of delay by signing off on a security plan for moving the embassy from Tel Aviv to the holy city, according to the officials, who weren't authorized to discuss the issue publicly and demanded anonymity.

Jewish Foundation Says US Should Cut Ties With Poland Over Holocaust Speech Law

The Ruderman Family Foundation, an American Jewish philanthropic organization, recently initiated a campaign calling for the US to dissolve its ties with Poland over the country’s controversial new law that makes it illegal to accuse the Polish nation of complicity in Nazi crimes during World War II.

The campaign includes a petition for the US to suspend its ties to Poland on the NeverDeny.org website. The site also reportedly included a video message showing men, women and children saying "Polish Holocaust," according to Times of Israel. Other footage showed people asking about time spent in a "Polish prison." However, the footage is currently unavailable on the website or YouTube.

The contentious law, recently signed by President Andrzej Duda this month, is due to take effect February 28. However, the law is to be reviewed by Poland's constitutional court since it has generated much criticism.

BLOWBACK: HOW ISRAEL WENT FROM HELPING CREATE HAMAS TO BOMBING IT

That it’s sworn to destroy Israel? That it’s a terrorist group, proscribed both by the United States and the European Union? That it rules Gaza with an iron fist? That it’s killed hundreds of innocent Israelis with rocket, mortar, and suicide attacks?

But did you also know that Hamas — which is an Arabic acronym for “Islamic Resistance Movement” — would probably not exist today were it not for the Jewish state? That the Israelis helped turn a bunch of fringe Palestinian Islamists in the late 1970s into one of the world’s most notorious militant groups? That Hamas is blowback?

African migrants start hunger strike over Israel expulsion

Hundreds of African migrants launched a hunger strike to protest Israel's implementation of its controversial policy to expel or indefinitely imprison them, a spokesman for the group said Wednesday.

Israel has resolved to expel thousands of Eritreans and Sudanese who entered illegally over the years, giving them an ultimatum to leave or risk being imprisoned indefinitely.

As the migrants could face danger or imprisonment if retur ned to their homelands, Israel is offering to relocate them to an unnamed third country, which the migrants and aid workers say is Rwanda or Uganda.

Authorities on Tuesday transferred seven Africans from the Holot detention centre to a nearby prison, prompting the 750 men held in Holot to launch a hunger strike that evening, said Abdat Ishmael, an Eritrean held at the southern Israel open facility.

On Wednesday, another five were taken to prison, Ishmael told AFP.

Israel propaganda festival canceled at French university

Activists are celebrating a victory for Palestinian rights after a festival to promote Israel was canceled at the University of Lille in northern France last week.

Meanwhile, the French government is continuing its complicity with Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank, which it claims to oppose.

The Escale en Israel – “a stop in Israel” – festival was supposed to run from 14-17 February, featuring lectures, music, films, wine tasting and cookery. It was sponsored by the university and several private firms.

Palestinian prisoners boycott Israeli military court

Palestinian prisoners have announced a boycott of Israeli military courts and will refuse to attend court hearings and encourage lawyers and human rights organizations to similarly stay away as a way to delegitimize the Israeli legal system.

The boycott started on 15 February, and will last, prisoners say, until Israel ends its practice of administrative detention – the widespread Israeli practice of imprisonment without charge or trial that can be renewed indefinitely and which is rooted in British colonial practices.

“The Israeli military court and laws are in complete harmony with the occupation’s policies against our people and represent a complete disregard for international norms,” detainees wrote in their statement.

Palestinians who are taken to military court are faced with a near 100 percent conviction rate.

The Coming Wars to End All Wars

The Trump and Netanyahu governments have a problem: How to start a greatly expanded Middle-Eastern war without having a justifiable reason for one. No doubt they are working hard to solve this urgent problem. If they can’t find a “justification” (which they can’t), they will have to create one (which they will). Or perhaps they will find what they have already created. Whatever the solution, we should feel confident that they are not sitting on their hands. History teaches those who care to learn that when aggressors place a gun on the wall in the first act of their play, it must go off in the final act.

CASE 4000: NETANYAHU CONFIDANT REPORTEDLY TO TURN STATE'S WITNESS

Suspended Communications Ministry director-general Shlomo Filber, a confidant of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, was expected to sign a state’s witness deal on Tuesday night as part of police investigation Case 4000.

Filber is reportedly suspected of bribery, fraud, breach of trust and other offenses, it was revealed on Tuesday.

He allegedly was Netanyahu’s “long-arm” in this case, and acted in his name in several deals that were allegedly done with the Bezeq telecommunications company and an attempt to sell the Walla media outlet. Filber’s testimony is reportedly expected to incriminate the prime minister.

The Justice Ministry refused to confirm or deny the report.

The state’s witness deal that is on offer to Filber does not include time in prison, said a Kan – Israel Public Broadcasting Corporation report.

Police encourage right-wing plans to seize Jerusalem’s al-Aqsa

President Donald Trump’s declaration that the US would move its Israel embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem was met with global condemnation and warnings that it could lead to a violent escalation.

But another threat to Jerusalem’s status quo, though no less dangerous, has received little international attention by comparison: Right-wing Israeli activists gained significant ground in their goal to take over the al-Aqsa mosque compound in the last year.

The so-called Temple movement, which has backers in Israel’s parliament and religious establishment, seeks to increase the number of Jews visiting the al-Aqsa mosque compound, one of the holiest sites for Muslims.

Swelling numbers of Jewish visitors, the movement believes, will force the hand of the Israeli government to grant permission to Jews to pray there.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would love to hope that through some concilliatory process between Jerusalem's Muslims and Jews, there could be an accord reached about sharing the space, which is holy to both faiths.

Unfortunately, there has been such hideous emnity between both groups that this has become an absolute non-starter.

But the notion of destroying the Dome of the Rock, also housed in the mosque compound, and the construction of a Jewish temple in its place?!? I frankly think that Israel would never be able to contain the blowback from such an act.

Lebanon ready to confront any ‘Israeli aggression at all costs’ – army

The Lebanese army has reaffirmed its readiness to confront the “Israeli aggression” by any means at its disposal if the ongoing disputes and already tense relations between the neighbors escalate into an armed confrontation.
“I reaffirm again our categorical rejection of the Israeli enemy infringing on Lebanon’s sovereignty and its sacred right to exploit all its economic resources,” General Joseph Aoun said, as quoted by the Lebanese army. “The army will not spare any method available to confront any Israeli aggression, whatever that costs.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Tillerson and Satterfield are completely wasting their time here; the IDF has their game plan for an invasion of Lebanon, and the Lebanese Military and Hezbollah, have theirs for defending it.

This is not a question of if an armed conflict will break out between these two countries, as Israel's Netanyahu sees any conflict as a distraction from corruption charges which have been suggested against him; it is only a question of when.

"Of course, the Prime Minister said that there were perpetrators both among the Polish people and among other nationalities who were living in Poland at that time, among Jewish people also, and this is a painful truth. Discussion on this topic is continuing in Israel and incites deep emotions," Michal Dworczyk said on Polish television.

ISRAEL IS DIRECTLY ARMING AT LEAST 7 SYRIAN REBEL GROUPS

Israel’s mounting interest in Syria’s War, and in particular in picking fights with the Assad government, Iran, and any other Shi’ite factions in the country, have included reports by analysts of a growing amount of Israeli arms and ammunition flowing across the border for rebels.

Officially, Israel isn’t a big fan on Sunni Islamist organizations. Such groups are the bulk of the rebellion on the Golan frontier, and that’s made them groups Israel has a very serious interest in seeing survive and thrive on the border.

Israeli officials have been very public in the past saying they prefer ISIS over the Alawite government in Syria. Expressing such a preference and arming terrorists are two different things, and Israel’s effort to step up arming for Islamist groups risks regional blowback.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Now that corruption charges have been recommended against Netanyahu, expect a brisk acceleration of everything he is trying to to accomplish regime change in Lebanon; Syria; and Iran. And from Sunday's LA Times, we have the following development:

Netanyahu in deeper peril as more Israeli officials are arrested on corruption charges

I originally expected such an uptick in regional Middle East conflict when he returned from addressing AIPAC here in Washington DC in the beginning of March, then seeing what President Trump was actually willing to "greenlight", in terms of US military response and involvement, once the two had met.

However, right now, he is a politcally wounded animal; and all animals are at their most dangerous when they are wounded.

I frankly am expecting much more geopolitical madness from Netanyahu, and soon, because losing the power and prestiege of the office of Prime Minister, under the conditions of an actual conviction on these charges, will leave him with no "cover" like that his current position affords him.

Hezbollah Leader Threatens "We Will Open Fire" On Disputed Israeli Offshore Oil & Gas Operations

During a televised address in Beirut on Friday Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah once again warned Israel to back off its claims over disputed oil and gas field just off the southern Lebanese coast, threatening that Hezbollah could "disable [Israel’s offshore oil installations] within hours."

"If you prevent us, we prevent you; if you open fire at us, we will open fire," Nasrallah threatened.

The dispute over the eastern Mediterranean gas field goes back to January 2017, but blew up starting in late January of this year as it has been put up for tender by Lebanon and is expected to be developed by an international consortium of energy companies. However, as we reported at the time Israel has aggressively pushed for major sectors of the field to be internationally recognized as lying within its rightful territorial waters, going so far as to warn "respectable" companies from participating in the tender, which would be a "major mistake".

Last week an Israeli F-16 was downed after Syrian air defenses launched some 20 missiles towards Israeli jets carrying out retaliatory strikes deep inside the war-torn country after an Iranian drone infiltrated Israeli airspace.

Neocons Call For War Against Iran In Syria After Israeli Strikes

The Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD) is a little known but highly influential hawkish think tank in Washington that has made a name for itself over the past few years by opposing the Iran nuclear deal and its subsequent (and current) efforts to derail it.

Aside from its long tradition of opposing negotiations with Iran, FDD has also been known as a safe space for its staff—chief among them CEO Mark Dubowitz—to call for war against Iran and/or regime change.

And for some reason, FDD really doesn’t like it when it gets called out on it.

In a piece in the Weekly Standard last December, Dubowitz and FDD Senior Fellow Reuel Marc Gerecht complained about being painted as warmongers for their opposition to the Iran deal. And Dubowitz himself regularly grumbles about this on Twitter, calling for a move away from what he calls “personal attacks” to instead focus on “honest discussion.”

But sometimes a hawk just can’t hide his thirst for war.

Iranian FM: "We will not hesitate to respond to any Israeli aggression against us"

Foreign Affairs Minister of Iran Mohammad Javad Zarif warned that Israel’s “invincibility” has “crumbled”, as he lambasted a speech given earlier by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the Munich Security Conference on Sunday.

Zarif talked in reference to the shooting down of an Israeli F-16 jet which had reportedly attacked an Iranian site in Syria.

"What has happened in the past several days, has been that the so-called invincibility has crumbled.”

“Israel uses aggression as a policy against its neighbors", he said.

Lavrov refuses to condemn either Israel or Iran as their rivalry intensifies

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Monday that Moscow refuses to be embroiled in Iranian-Israeli hostilities and rejects that Israel should not exist, while regional problems should not be blamed on Iran.

Lavrov said at the opening of the Valdai International Discussion Club’s conference titled "Russia in the Middle East: Playing on All Fields," that tensions between Iran and Israel exist because of history.

"We have stated many times that we won’t accept the statements that Israel, as a Zionist state, should be destroyed and wiped off the map. I believe this is an absolutely wrong way to advance one’s own interests," Lavrov said.

"By the same token, we oppose attempts to view any regional problem through the prism of fighting Iran," he noted.

Several senior executives from the Israeli telecommunications giant Bezeq, including two close associates of Benjamin Netanyahu, have been arrested as part of the corruption probe into the Israeli Prime Minister's alleged corruption activities.

The detainees include Communications Ministry Director General Shlomo Filbert, who is accused of handing confidential documents to Bezeq to add to the company's favorable treatment and provide positive media coverage of Netanyahu.

Israel moves to create punitive ‘blacklist’ of citizens who back BDS

Israel’s Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon is “set to approve in the coming days new regulations to prevent organisations and individuals who support a boycott of Israel from receiving various tax breaks or from participating in government bids”, newspaper Haaretz has reported.

According to the report, Israeli officials in the strategic affairs ministry “expect a list of Israeli citizens and organisations who support BDS” to be compiled, in addition to “the existing list of foreign groups that promote BDS”.

The paper continued that “if and when the new regulations are approved, an inter-ministerial team will begin work on” a list “for local groups and activists under the supervision of legal advisers”.

Sources in the strategic affairs ministry “said that the effort would focus on central groups and activists – including Israelis – and not on people who are critical of Israel and believe Israel should be boycotted”.

This B’Tselem report exposes Israel’s pollution of the occupied West Bank

Israel remains the only UN member state which has never declared where its borders are. In fact, it has refused to demarcate any borders due to the Zionist intention to colonise the whole of historic Palestine. For less desirable requirements, however, it does not hesitate to apply a temporary suspension of its agenda, recognise separate areas and impose additional hardships on Palestinians.

As with several other discriminatory policies, Israel acknowledges Palestinian existence and land only when it can use such recognition to suit its nefarious purposes. Human rights group B’Tselem’s December 2017 report called “Made in Israel: Exploiting Palestinian Land for Israeli Waste” reveals that there are 15 Israeli waste treatment facilities in the occupied West Bank. Six of these facilities process hazardous waste.

Polish PM seeks dialogue with Israel on 'difficult history'

Poland's prime minister said Sunday that dialogue with Israel about the Holocaust is necessary and would serve as a warning to prevent such "exceptionally terrifying" crimes from happening again.

Mateusz Morawiecki tweeted his thoughts after a telephone conversation with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The call was prompted by a comment the Polish politician made that equated Polish collaborators in the Holocaust to alleged "Jewish perpetrators."

The remark, given Saturday at the Munich Security Conference, reignited a weekslong diplomatic dispute over Poland's new law prohibiting some statements about the Holocaust. The law reflects the current Polish government's approach to World War II history, which focuses on Poland's suffering and heroism.

Problems with the Chabad group must be made public

For many years, the leading Rabbis have made several statements against the Chabad organization referring to it, among other things, as a "criminal organization" and a "religious cult". Chabad is known to be a "mafia" a "gang" and a "group of very bad people".

The above statements are not political in nature. There are basic problems with the Chabad organization that derive from the day this group was founded about 200 years ago. Chabad Rabbis are not considered real Rabbis by any Orthodox Rabbis anywhere in the world. Chabad Rabbis cannot perform conversions, supervise Kosher food production, arrange a GET ceremony, or do shechita of Kosher animals.

From the point of view of Jewish Orthodoxy, Chabad is compared to the Reform and the Conservative movements. The difference is that Chabad claims to be part of Orthodox Judaism, when it's really not.

German police probe British woman over Holocaust remarks

German police are investigating a British woman for suspected incitement after she questioned the Holocaust during a far-right protest in the eastern city of Dresden.

A spokeswoman for Dresden police says Australian-born Michele Renouf is one of two people being investigated for remarks made at a neo-Nazi rally Saturday commemorating those killed in the 1945 Allied bombing of the city.

Videos of the rally posted online show Renouf saying the only Holocaust perpetrated in Europe was against German civilians. Publicly denying the Nazis' well-documented murder of six million Jews is a criminal offense in Germany.

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

Chabad's power derives from two services they provide the Illuminati:

1. They work with Israeli intelligence in criminal and intelligence operations.

2. They promote a supremacist ideology that encourages Zionists to do dirty deeds.

The Jewish sheriff at Florida shooting cites Talmudic verse as his motivation

JTA — As he leads the police response to the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel is likely enduring some of the toughest days of his career. And he’s probably looking to his Judaism to guide him through it.

A Democrat, he was elected sheriff in 2012 and reelected four years later. The county is home to a large Jewish population. In the 2016 campaign flier, he mentioned fighting gun violence as one of his top issues.

ISRAEL MOVES TO CREATE PUNITIVE ‘BLACKLIST’ OF CITIZENS WHO BACK BDS

Sources in the strategic affairs ministry “said that the effort would focus on central groups and activists – including Israelis – and not on people who are critical of Israel and believe Israel should be boycotted”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If this draconian law is passed, it means that BDS is working, as a peaceful, non-violent way of protesting Israeli apartheid against Palestinians.

And if Isaeli citizens are supporting it, this may be just a little light at the end of a tunnel of Tel Aviv's intransigence on the issue of the existence of the Palestinian state.

I wouldn't bet on it; but at least, this gives one hope.
