General Golan has been serving as Deputy Chief of the General Staff of the Israel Defense Forces since late 2014.

Lindsey Graham Blocks as Ryan, Obama Oppose 9/11 Bill

Sen. Lindsey Graham has placed a hold on legislation that would open the door for victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks to sue Saudi Arabia.

Graham (R-S.C.), who is a co-sponsor of the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, put the hold on his own bill over concerns that new changes could expose the U.S. to legal attacks.Edits made last week by Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) might expand the scope, Graham told reporters on Tuesday, potentially putting the U.S. at risk of legal retaliation because of actions by individuals or unsavory allies.

“I want to make sure that anything we do doesn’t come to bite us,” Graham told reporters in the basement of the Senate.

Netanyahu, Putin tweak military coordination as Syria conditions change

Netanyahu's comments to diplomatic reporters by phone from Moscow came at the end of a two-and-a-half hour meeting he had with Putin in the Kremlin.

Netanyahu said that in light of security issues that he raised with Putin, the Russian leader recommended that OC Air Force Maj.-Gen. Amir Eshel, as well as Netanyahu's military attache Brig.-Gen Eliezer Toledano, hold an immediate meeting with his defense ministry.

“They went there and discussed in dealt the coordination between our armies on a number of issues that have been on the agenda,” Netanyahu said. “That is important because we must preserve the freedom of action of the IDF and the air force in areas that are important for our security. And I think that was achieved.”

Netanyahu said that “problems naturally arise” when you have two militaries operating so close to one another, and that “if you don't deal with that friction, it could develop into something much more serious, as we say on another front.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to ask myself: what did Putin and Russia get out of this deal?!?

What would have been the quid pro quo here?!?

Was he able to get Netanyahu to commit to no more firings into Syria from the Golan, so that the Russian and Syrian forces could clean out the jihadists once and for all?!?

West Haven I-95 billboard on USS Liberty is anti-Israel, critics charge

A billboard on Interstate 95 is sparking outrage from a local lawyer and criticism from the Anti-Defamation League for what they say is its anti-Israel message.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is an established historical fact that Israel did indeed attack the USS Liberty, killing 34 American servicemen and wounding 174. Saying that reporting Israel's crimes is anti-Israel is like saying reporting on the crimes of the Nazis is anti-German!

"To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize." -- Voltaire

Israel - Map Censorship

What is the difference between a textbook publisher giving into pressure from Christian fundamentalists seeking to censor the teaching of evolution, and a publisher giving in to Zionists seeking to censor awareness of the ethnic cleansing of Palestine? Neither phenomenon is a matter of opinion or perspective. One act of censorship denies facts established by scientific research. The other denies the documented violation of international law (for instance, the Fourth Geneva Convention) and multiple UN resolutions. So the answer to the question just asked is – there is no difference.

Israel’s nuclear arsenal biggest regional threat: Top Iranian official

The Tel Aviv regime, which pursues a policy of so-called deliberate ambiguity about its nuclear bombs, is estimated to have 200 to 400 nuclear warheads in its arsenal. The regime has refused to allow inspections of its military nuclear facilities or to sign the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

... which makes every penny of your tax dollars sent to Israel by the US Government a crime under the Symington Amendment to the Foreign Appropriations Act and the Glenn Act, both of which expressly forbid US aid to nations in possession of nuclear weapons technology that refuse to sign the NNPT or allow IAEA inspections.

Colorado town considers potential conflict of becoming Palestine sister city

This peaceful university town is 7,000 miles from the violence of the Middle East, but a proposal to become sister cities with a Palestinian community has stirred such rancor that the city council is trying to negotiate a truce among its own residents.

The council decided Tuesday to hire a moderator and convene a citizen panel in hopes of settling differences between two sides arguing about whether Boulder should have a formal sister-city relationship with Nablus, on the West Bank.

Sister-city ties would help combat misunderstandings about Palestinians, said Essrea Cherin, president of the Boulder-Nablus Sister City Project, which is promoting the relationship. She said the entire Palestinian population is unfairly portrayed in the US media as violent because of the actions of a few.

Embezzlement scandal rocks Israel's diamond exchange

Israeli police arrested a diamond dealer on Wednesday suspected of taking part in a $65 million fraud at the country’s diamond exchange. Some of his family members may also be involved in the embezzlement.

The suspect was identified as a well-known Israeli dealer Hanan Abramovich and head of Hanan Abramovich Diamonds.

"The suspect is under arrest and we are currently questioning him on suspicion of embezzlement," said a police spokeswoman as cited by Reuters.

The investigation was started after a number of dealers from the Israel Diamond Exchange (IDE) complained the Abramovich firm owed them "tens of millions of dollars" for gems it purchased but never paid for.

Israel Actively “Cooperates” with the Islamic State and Al Qaeda. Military Aid Channelled into Syria out of the Golan Heights

Syria’s chief negotiator at the Geneva peace talks Bashar Ja’afri accused Israel of “cooperating” with the Islamic State and Al Nusra, an affiliate of al-Qaeda in the Golan Heights

According to Ja’afari (quoted by RT):

“This Israeli provocation confirms without any doubt the cooperation between Israel and terrorists of Daesh (Isis) and Nusra Front on the demarcation line between where the Golan is and UN troops are positioned.

“It is no coincidence at all that this Israeli escalation was accompanied by irresponsible statements by members of the so-called Saudi delegation at talks here in Geneva,” Ja’afari added, referring to the main opposition group.

‘Saudis Did 9/11’ is a Zionist Ruse

The Saudi rulers – as corrupt, autocratic and reprehensible as they are – are little more than slavish middle-mangers of the American-Zionist Empire, a far cry from the domineering Caesarian overlords that the deceptive mainstream media and some Zionist apologists in the alternative media want to make them out to be. Middle-managers cannot organize the biggest conspiracy of the 21st century, hoodwinking the world’s foremost superpower and somehow managing to get away with it.

Hillary Clinton has made her “unbreakable bond” with Israel’s right-wing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a centerpiece of her presidential campaign, repeatedly echoing his calls for an escalated crackdown on the Palestinian-led boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement.

So it was no surprise when she recently took to the debate stage, and to CNN, to criticize rival Bernie Sanders for his insistence that Israel’s 51-day military assault on Gaza, which killed 1,462 civilians during the summer of 2014, was disproportionate, instead blaming these killings solely on Hamas and even on dead innocents.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable!

What a pandering hypocrite!

What will she do if she wins/(steals) the election?!? Bomb every single Palestinian to death for Israel?!? I frankly wouldn't bet against something like that, if I were a betting woman.

“Death to the Arabs” rally draws thousands in Tel Aviv

In Tel Aviv’s Yitzhak Rabin Square on Tuesday evening, thousands of Israelis rallied in support of Elor Azarya, the soldier filmed executing a gravely wounded Palestinian last month.

Rally-goers shouted anti-Arab slogans and attacked persons perceived as being leftists or journalists.

Hours earlier, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued a call for leniency for the soldier.

Reporter David Sheen, a contributor to The Electronic Intifada, was set upon by a mob and then ordered to leave the area by police after he was accused of association with B’Tselem.

Sheen told The Electronic Intifada he arrived at Rabin Square before the rally began but as several hundred people had already gathered. Some asked him to film them with their signs supporting Azarya.

At that point, Sheen said, a man began asking him why he was filming. Other members of the crowd quickly began joining in, shouting at Sheen, “Are you B’Tselem? Go to Gaza!”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sadly and ironically, because many of these young people had relatives, now passed, who had to endure Hitler's horrific treatment of Germany's Jewish citizens, the last image in this collection of pictures says it all; THIS is the real Israel; THIS is the country your tax dollars support lavishly while US homeless Vets sleep in our streets; and THIS is the very real face of vicious Israeli apartheid against Palestinians.

The Most Abused Term in Canada

“Anti-Semitism” may be the most abused term in Canada today. Almost entirely divorced from its dictionary definition – “discrimination against or prejudice or hostility toward Jews” – it is now primarily invoked to uphold Jewish/white privilege.

In a recent Canadian Jewish News interview long time l’Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) professor Julien Bauer slurs Arabs and Muslims as he bemoans “anti-Semitism”. “In the corridors of UQAM, there are occasionally pro-Hamas demonstrations and anti-Semitic posters, but this is relatively rare,” Bauer wrote in French. “At Concordia University, it’s an anti-Semitic festival every day of the year! This is normal because there are many more Arab and Muslim students at Concordia than UQAM.”

The Jewish community’s leading media outlet, which recently called Jews the “Chosen People”, failed to question Bauer’s racism and Islamophobia. Instead, they put his picture on the front of the Québec edition.

SOME 2,000 ISRAELIS GLORIFY MURDER IN COLD BLOOD

About 2,000 Israelis rallied in central Tel Aviv on Tuesday night in support of soldier Elor Azaria, who shot dead a neutralized terrorist in Hebron.

Sergeant Azaria, 20, from Ramla, was charged on Monday with manslaughter for killing Abed al Fatah a-Sharif, who was lying on the ground seriously wounded after he and another Palestinian attacked IDF soldiers.

The protesters waved support signs and flags, some wrapping the Israeli flag around themselves. Many called for Azaria’s release, while some made racist jeers.

Among the slogans chanted by rally attendees were “Elor the Hero,” “Terrorists shouldn’t be neutralized – they should be killed,” and “Kill or be killed.”

US Supreme Court rules Iran must pay almost $2bn to victims of 1983 terror attacks

The US Supreme Court has ruled that Iran must pay nearly US$2 billion in compensation to relatives of the 241 Marines who died in a 1983 terrorist attack in Beirut, as well as victims of other attacks that courts have linked to Tehran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a dangerous precedent. There is no evidence that Iran had anything to do with Beirut. In fact it has all the hallmarks of a false-flag (including Israel foreknowledge). But the US courts are simply declaring nations guilty of crimes and then confiscating their wealth inside the US. This is being done not only for financial gain but propaganda value, convincing the American people that Iran deserves to be invaded.

Now they are starting the same process with Saudi Arabia, claiming some 28 pages of dubious authenticity prove Saudi Arabia was behind 9-11, with Congress preparing to pass a bill to allow seizure of Saudi Assets, again for cash to prop up the failing US economy, and for propaganda value leading towards a new invasion.

But this could backfire in a huge way as other nations may decide that investing in the US has become a high-risk venture when the US government can simply hurl an unfounded accusation and seize assets. Those other nations might decide it is time to dump their US investments and get their cash out while they still can, all at once.

U.S.: Golan Heights Not Part of Israel, Despite Netanyahu’s Claims

The United States and Germany both criticized Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s declaration that the Golan Heights “will forever remain part of Israeli sovereignty.”

U.S. State Department spokesman John Kirby said Monday that the Obama administration does not consider the Golan Heights to be part of Israel, despite Netanyahu’s assertion at a Cabinet meeting there Sunday, Haaretz reported .

“The U.S. position on the issue is unchanged,” Kirby said at a daily media briefing at the State Department in Washington. “This position was maintained by both Democratic and Republican administrations. Those territories are not part of Israel and the status of those territories should be determined through negotiations.”

Debunking the "The Saudis did 9-11" nonsense!

And finally, here is some common sense that totally undermines the attempt to frame Saudi Arabia for 9-11. If Saudi Arabia really wanted to hurt the United States, they don't need to fly airplanes into skyscrapers to do it. All they have to do is ask for their money back, all at once. The resulting damage to the US financial system would make 9-11 look like a minor inconvenience in comparison.

And it would be perfectly legal for Saudi Arabia to ask for their money back.

Which is why we know that the claim that Saudi Arabia was behind 9-11 has no more basis in fact than the claim that Saddam had nuclear weapons or that Assad gassed his own people right in front of the UN chemical weapons inspectors.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

PLEASE SHARE THIS ARTICLE AROUND BEFORE WE GET STUCK IN ANOTHER WAR!

Saudi Arabia knows that the US links 9-11 to every nation it wants to invade. First it was Afghanistan, then Iraq (after which George W. Bush admitted on TV Iraq had nothing to do with 9-11).

Saudi Arabia now finds themselves in the croshairs of the US war machine!

To find out if you are being lied to, look for what should be there and isn't, and what isn't there is a motive for Saudi Arabia to attack the United States on 9-11. Saudi Arabia has grown very rich off of the United States with the petrodollar deal. And they have invested much of that money in the United States. Why would Saudi Arabia do anything that would risk having the United States confiscate that money or end the lucrative petrodollar arrangement?

And let us be honest, it wasn't Saudis who were arrested for cheering and clapping while the towers came crashing down, it was Mossad agents. Israeli owned companies like Odigo received advance warning of the attack. Saudi companies did not.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice (or thrice) shame on me!

Syria says Israel collaborating with militants in Golan Heights

Syria's envoy to the United Nations says Israeli regime has been collaborating with the Takfiri Daesh terrorists and al-Qaeda linked militants in the occupied Golan Heights.

Bashar Ja'afari made the remarks during a press briefing after meeting the UN's special envoy for Syria, Staffan de Mistura, at peace talks in the Swiss city of Geneva on Monday.

The Syrian official also denounced as "provocative" an Israeli cabinet meeting recently held in the occupied region.

"It is an irresponsible provocation committed by Benjamin Netanyahu, the prime minister of the Israeli occupation force," Ja'afari said, noting, "This Israeli provocation ... confirms without any doubt the cooperation between Israel and terrorists of Daesh and Nusra Front on the demarcation line between where the Golan is and UN troops are positioned."

Sanders's criticism of Israel is long overdue

Bernie Sanders is not only taking on the Washington establishment in his campaign for the Democratic Party presidential nomination, he is also challenging many of the received truths that make up the ideological foundations upon which its power rests.

Of those received truths one of the most sacrosanct is America’s unconditional support for the state of Israel, with the penalty for anyone in US public life who dares question that support, dares question Israel, instant and immediate career death. The fact that Sanders, who also happens to be Jewish, has departed from this ironclad consensus and dared criticize Israel while campaigning for the highest office in the land, this only adds more significance to it.

Tax day is annoying for Americans, and hell for Palestinians

Tax Day can be aggravating for those of us who file and pay taxes without benefit of lawyers, accountants, family foundations or secret offshore accounts. For opponents of illegal Israeli settlements, apartheid and population removal generally, it is also a day of outrage. Palestinians may legitimately feel terror and despair at what this day signifies for them.

For Tax Day is the day that pro-Zionist Americans get to take off their 2015 contributions to any of the US pro-Israel charities that everyone, including the US Treasury, knows are funneling money to establish and support illegal Jewish settlements and consequently the terror inflicted upon Palestinians by armed and violent settlers. (Of course, it is also the day that each of us contributes our tax dollars to funding the weapons used to enforce Israel’s occupation.)

Syria responds to Netanyahu: We will conquer the Golan

It didn't take Syria long to respond to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's Cabinet meeting on the Golan Heights Sunday, in which he declared Israel will never surrender the region that was liberated in the 1967 Six Day War.

Shortly after the meeting on Sunday, Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Al-Mekdad told Lebanon's al-Mayadeen that his regime will "retake the Golan Heights by any means necessary, including using military force."

"The Arab Syrian Golan is an occupied territory," claimed Al-Mekdad, referencing UN Security Council resolutions calling the area Syrian.

“The stereotype is of monsters, high school dropouts, Arab killers, thieves of Arab land and uprooters of Arab olive trees,” the host, Rabbi Meir Goldmintz, told his visitors. “The truth is they are the greatest kids, they love this land and want to make their lives here.”
Note: There is nothing left to see I have been there many times. The Israelis have made it a little New York city. Don't go.

Caltech professor claims Israeli spy infiltrated JPL

A physics professor at the California Institute of Technology filed a lawsuit against the university Thursday, alleging it allowed a potential Israeli spy on campus for two years even after she reported that he violated federal laws and shared classified information with his home country and on the Internet.

Sandra Troian alleges Caltech administrators ignored the school’s whistleblower policy and retaliated against her for the past four years because if they had documented her concern, they could have put an $8 billion contract with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory at risk and put the school in a bad light. Troian said she is frightened for her career.

‘Any legislation having to do with Middle East has to be vetted and approved by AIPAC’ — Tom DeLay

“When Tom DeLay was House majority leader, I found out that any legislative provision having to do with the Middle East had to be vetted and approved by AIPAC before the bill could move forward.”

So states Mike Lofgren, recently retired after 28 years as Congressional staffer, the last 16 years as senior analyst for House and Senate Budget Committees.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mike Lofgren a retired Congressional staffer for 28 years wrote in a book about his experience in Congress in which he stated that :" Under Tom Delay,who was majority leader, nothing can be passed concerning the Middle East without being vetted by AIPAC "...And Israel was behind the push for Iraq war..

Clinton propagates false understanding of Camp David

Clinton’s response simply fell short of being true. At one point, during a performance of Israeli rightwing talking points, she said: “If Yasser Arafat had agreed with my husband at Camp David in the late 1990s to the offer then Prime Minister Barak put on the table, we would have had a Palestinian state for 15 years.”

To understand just how plainly false is the idea these words suggest, that Arafat and Palestinians turned down an “unprecedented” and “generous” Israeli offer, it is important to revisit coverage and first hand accounts of the failed Summit. Most importantly, that Clinton would propagate such an understanding gives a hint of where her presidency is likely to stand on the issue, if she wins.

White House Petition - Honor the USS LIBERTY

The USS LIBERTY is the most decorated ship in the US Navy for a single action

The USS LIBERTY crew was awarded a Medal of Honor, two Navy Crosses, 11 Silver Stars and more than 200 Purple Hearts, a Presidential Unit Citation and the Combat Action Ribbon.

Israel’s June 8 1967 attack on the lightly armed USS LIBERTY remains the worst attack on any American Navy ship since World War II, and to this day most Americans do not know about the USS LIBERTY and how that event changed American foreighn policy.

Admiral Moorer, General Raymond Davis, Rear Admiral Staring, Ambassador James Akins and other high ranking US officials have called for every June 8th to be known as “USS LIBERTY Remembrance Day, in order to commemorate the Liberty’s heroic crew”.

GOING BEYOND CHUTZPAH

Like apartheid South Africa did to Justify its repulsive approach toward its majority black citizens, Israel is making all sorts of similarly despicable arguments to justify its decades-old evil occupation and systematic persecution of Palestinians.

The White regime’s PR machine would shamelessly argue that “Our black citizens have a higher standard of living than other fellow black people anywhere in the continent.”

Saudi Arabia’s threat to sell off billions in American assets if 9/11 bill passes

The Saudi Arabian government has threatened to sell of hundreds of billions of dollars’ worth of American assets should the US Congress pass a bill that could hold the kingdom responsible for any role in the September 11, 2001 attacks, The New York Times reported.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Saudi Arabia knows that the US links 9-11 to every nation it wants to invade. First it was Afghanistan, then Iraq (after which George W. Bush admitted on TV Iraq had nothing to do with 9-11).

Saudi Arabia now finds themselves in the croshairs of the US war machine!

To find out if you are being lied to, look for what should be there and isn't, and what isn't there is a motive for Saudi Arabia to attack the United States on 9-11. Saudi Arabia has grown very rich off of the United States with the petrodollar deal. And they have invested much of that money in the United States. Why would Saudi Arabia do anything that would risk having the United States confiscate that money or end the lucrative petrodollar arrangement? Especially without some compelling reason? And as the Saudi threat confirms, if Saudi Arabia really did want to harm the United States they would not need to crash airplanes into buildings, all they need do is take their investment funds back and the US economy would implode. The resulting economic devastation would make the loss of the World Trade Towers seem like a minor inconvenience in comparison! And it would be perfectly legal for Saudi Arabia to do so.

And let us be honest, it wasn't Saudis who were arrested for cheering and clapping while the towers came crashing down, it was Mossad agents. Israeli owned companies like Odigo received advance warning of the attack. Saudi companies did not.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice (or thrice) shame on me!

US House members urge Obama to block anti-Israel resolution at UN

394 members of the 435-member House signed the letter sent to Obama on Thursday, urging him to use US veto power to block any United Nations resolutions perceived to be biased against Israel, US Representative Nita Lowey said Friday.

The letter came as the Palestinians are discussing with Arab countries a new draft resolution against Israel’s unlawful expansion of settlements in the occupied territories.

Blind Palestinian karate team detained at Israeli border after return from Dubai tournament

Israel has detained the coach of a blind Palestinian karate team for “suspected involvement in terrorist activity" after he and five of his students were stopped by Israeli forces at the Erez border crossing earlier this week while trying to re-enter Gaza.

The five blind and vision-impaired students, all under 18 years old, were travelling with four sighted students from the same karate school on their way back from Dubai where they had been competing in an international tournament. One of the students’ mothers was also travelling with them.

Their coach, Hassan Al Ra’e, had intended to go to Dubai with the students but after crossing with them from Gaza into Israel and then the West Bank, he was unable to travel onwards, his brother, Nasser, told The National.

Red Sea Deal: Are Israel and Saudi Arabia Forming a Joint Military?

By Clarice Palmer

As more details emerge revealing the brutal nature of the ongoing military campaign carried out by Saudi Arabia in Yemen, Muslim Press reports that documents leaked by an unnamed senior military official associated with the Israeli left-wing liberal party Meretz show Israel and Saudi Arabia have cooperated in military efforts. The report also suggests some of the islands tied to the recent Red Sea deal are also being used by both nations to train their joint military.

Netanyahu Claimed That New Building Plans Wouldn't Expand Israeli Settlements; Aerial Photos Prove Otherwise

Responding to a report in Thursday's Haaretz that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had approved the construction in West Bank Jewish settlements of hundreds of new housing units, the Prime Minister's Office issued a statement denying the report, saying that other than the settlement of Ganei Modi'in, "almost all of the approvals are designed to upgrade existing structures," rather than new construction, as reported.

However a review of the relevant plans, as well as aerial photos taken of the sites involved, reveal that the statement from Netanyahu's office is not entirely accurate. For example, in the settlement of Nokdim, south of Bethlehem, some 70 new housing units were approved.

This is the billboard in question. All it says is that Israel attacked the USS Liberty, which is a matter of historical fact. What Israel wants (and has always wanted) is for the world to forget the crimes they commit, so that they may commit more with impunity.

We will have a representative from the USS Liberty Billboard team, Daniel McGowen, on the radio show nest Tuesday.

Debunking the "The Saudis did 9-11" nonsense!

And finally, here is some common sense that totally undermines the attempt to frame Saudi Arabia for 9-11. If Saudi Arabia really wanted to hurt the United States, they don't need to fly airplanes into skyscrapers to do it. All they have to do is ask for their money back, all at once. The resulting damage to the US financial system would make 9-11 look like a minor inconvenience in comparison.

And it would be perfectly legal for Saudi Arabia to ask for their money back.

Which is why we know that the claim that Saudi Arabia was behind 9-11 has no more basis in fact than the claim that Saddam had nuclear weapons or that Assad gassed his own people right in front of the UN chemical weapons inspectors.

The fact that Netanyahu is a ‘purest’ when it comes to the business of Armageddon–and no one should make the mistake of thinking he is anything otherwise–is clearly evident in the various snarlings and growlings attributed to him over the years but which have been mischaracterized by the Gentile world as meaningless political meanderings with no deeper implications attached. Indeed, just as with the infamous ‘bomb-gonna-go-boom’ cartoonery he utilized at the UN General Assembly in 2012 conveying the threat of Judaically-induced holocaust against Gentiledom if his demands regarding war with Iran and others are not met, likewise have there been numerous other instances where Mr. 666 talks with the mouth of a man but speaks the language of the beast.

15 Saudi ‘hijackers’ were CIA agents working for US

“We know that the 15 hijackers who were Saudis, the alleged hijackers, because they were not on those planes – not one of the 19 hijackers, or any Arabs, were on any of the four planes, according to the passenger list, and according to all of the evidence that would be there if they were on the planes, but has not been produced,” Dr. Barrett said.

“So these 15 Saudi patsies, who were set up to take the blame for 9/11, were in fact CIA agents. We know this – I had this confirmed directly by a CIA source that these 15 Saudis entered, and repeatedly reentered on these supposedly – they call them employment visas, but there’s a special number for employment visas that are only given to CIA assets as a reward for their service to the Central Intelligence Agency, and this visa allows them to come to the US. Typically they’re paid for their work for the CIA in Saudi Arabia, and then they are given this special kind of visa which is disguised as an employment visa but it’s a of particular type,” he stated.

Ayman Nejm, media spokesman for Martin McMahon and Associates, the law firm that filed the law suit, told Safa news agency on Monday that the case is the first of its kind where Palestinian and Palestinian-American plaintiffs have filed a lawsuit against wealthy US citizens and tax-exempt entities that have provided massive financial assistance to settlements across the Occupied Palestinian Territories.

According to the statement, the lawsuit has been filed against construction companies, security firms, real estate agencies and private banks involved in supporting the growth of Israeli settlements.

Israel – A Nation Founded Upon a Monumental Lie

Once upon a time, hundreds of years ago, there was an extraordinarily evil kingdom. A land ruled by a wicked king who filled his court with practitioners of ancient Babylonian black arts, and occult oligarchs. A land inhabited by an aggressive demented race of thieves, murderers, and highwaymen, who would prey on travellers, steal from them, murder them, and then assume their identity. The citizens of neighbouring lands lived in constant fear and trepidation of this menacing realm, its criminal population, and its warlike tendencies.

Anyone could be forgiven for thinking that the above opening is the prologue to a mythical fable from times past, but such a sinister country, complete with its equally terrorizing inhabitants did exist. The country was called Khazaria, and its populace Khazars. A land to the north of Georgia and the south of Bulgaria, between the Black and Caspian seas.

“The American government colluded with Israel in the treasonous cover-up of the attack on the USS LIBERTY and the survivors were ordered to remain silent under threat of court martial, imprisonment or worse. The U.S. government has never challenged the obviously phony Israeli excuse of ‘mistaken identity’ nor have they attempted to expose the dishonorable cover up that continues to date.

WH Campaign Shields Israel's Occupation Ferocity

So obsessed is U.S. media with this year's headlong dash for the White House, that Israel's increase in settlement construction has gone by us like a snake sliding into a backyard recycling bin.

The Paris-based news agency, AFP reported from Jerusalem this week that "the number of West Bank settlements Israel plans to build... has more than tripled ...in the first quarter of 2016 compared to the same period last year."

Israeli-based Peace Now, a settlement watchdog, said in a statement "that between January and March, projects for 674 housing units passed at least one of the steps in the planning approval process, up from 194 in the first quarter of 2015."

The absence of media attention to such a development is no surprise. The mainline media narrative on Israel/Palestine is already conditioned to treat Israel as a 51st U.S. state, surrounded by "terrorists."

The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement is fueled by anti-Semitism, and has no place in Florida or any part of the world that values freedom and democracy."

Salah added that the total size of this farmland is eight Dunams (1.976 Acres), and that the soldiers did this act without any reason or prior notice.

Obama, Support Abbas' UN Resolution, No Matter What Netanyahu Says

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas keeps coming up with moves that could advance the peace process. In his efforts to get the international community behind a major initiative, Abbas is expected to submit to the UN Security Council this month a draft resolution reflecting international consensus that could help to jump-start the stalled peace process.

The resolution calls for the immediate resumption of negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians, with a one-year deadline to complete them and reach a final-status arrangement based on the principle of two states. It would define the settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem as illegal and an obstacle to peace and condemn continued Israeli construction in the occupied territories, as well as any action whose purpose is to change the demographic balance in the area.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here is where Netanyahu's grand-standing before Congress during the P5+1 talks may come back to bite him.

"60 Minutes" & The Secret 28 Pages of 9/11

When we consider the "60 Minutes" report about the 28 top-secret pages about 9/11 that aired on CBS last night, we need to consider a few things: the source of the report, and its content.

First, let's consider the content: The CBS News program focused on the 28 pages that seem to show Saudi support for two of the alleged 9/11 hijackers. These pages have been classified for 13 years, so why is it that only now they are an issue for "60 Minutes" - after 13 years?

Israelis Trained U.S. to Use 'Palestinian Chair' Torture Device

As a former interrogator in Iraq working as a military contractor for the private security firm CACI, Eric Fair was stationed at the Abu Ghraib prison and in Fallujah in 2004. While in Fallujah, he witnessed a torture device known as the Palestinian chair. He writes in his new book, "Consequence: A Memoir," that the chair was a way to immobilize prisoners in order to break them down both physically and mentally. He also wrote that the Israeli military taught them how to use the Palestinian chair during a joint training exercise.

SAVE OUR CHILDREN BY SUPPORTING BDS

In the past few months, especially since the beginning of the current wave of Palestinian resistance against Israel’s enduring brutal military occupation, about six months ago, the Israeli army and other security forces adopted a decidedly murderous policy against Palestinians, especially children.

A shoot-to-kill policy was adopted by the Israeli political and military leadership, apparently for the purpose of terrorizing and “deterring” the Palestinian populace. Consequently, dozens of young Palestinians were needlessly murdered on the streets of the West Bank on the pretext that some of the victims may have put the life of Israeli soldiers at risk.

In some incidents, soldiers fired additional bullets at the heads of the already completely “neutralized” Victims.

In the Israeli army lexicon, this is done for the purpose of verifying their death.

REMEMBERING THE TERROR THAT LED TO JEWISH STATEHOOD

Palestinians on Saturday marked the 68th anniversary of the massacre of more than 100 Palestinians civilians carried out by Zionist paramilitary groups in the village of Deir Yassin in 1948 prior to the establishment of Israel.

Deir Yassin has long been a symbol of Israeli violence for Palestinians because of the particularly gruesome nature of the slaughter, which targeted men, women, children, and the elderly in the small village west of Jerusalem.

The number of victims is generally believed to be around 107, though figures given at the time reached up to 254, out of a village that numbered around 600 at the time.

The Deir Yassin massacre was led by the Irgun group, whose head was future Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin, with support from other paramilitary groups Haganah and Lehi whose primary aim was to push Palestinians out through force.

Hillary Clinton: Differences with Israel would be dealt with in private

Hillary Clinton said that as president, she would handle disagreements with Israel “in a respectfully and preferably private way” — a rare dig at how President Barack Obama handled the relationship.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In other words Hillary will adopt a 'hushed up' and secrecy policy when it come to Israel...so Israel will not be embarrassed.

Craig Murray: Two Smooth Faces of Evil

Many of you will recognise one of the faces in this photograph, Mark Regev. He is Israel’s new Ambassador to London and of course was the Israeli government spokesman who justified the massacre of more than 600 women and children in Gaza, and the murder of peace activists aboard the Mavi Marmara.

The other face of evil is Simon McDonald, head of the UK Diplomatic Service. You probably now think I am indulging in hyperbole. But no, I am not.

Simon McDonald was the Foreign Secretary Jack Straw’s Private Secretary at the time of the implementation of the British government’s extraordinary rendition and intelligence from torture programmes. When I became the only member of the UK’s senior civil service to make formal objection to these programmes, it was Simon McDonald who managed Jack Straw’s response in continuing to use torture.
