Israel's Right To Exist video Debunked DERSHOWITZ DESTROYED


This guy is a lawyer? He's throwing up Mythology as History. Imagine if Christians just started saying Noah's Ark was a Historical event or that the Tower of Babble, Story of Samson, Jonah and the Wale, or Moses walking through the red Sea were History and not Religion. Of but King David and the Giant that's a real one. LOL.

Progress report on the US-Russian war

I am often asked if the US and Russia will go to war with each other. I always reply that they are already at war. Not a war like WWII, but a war nonetheless. This war is, at least for the time being, roughly 80% informational, 15% economic and 5% kinetic. But in political terms the outcome for the loser of this war will be no less dramatic than the outcome of WWII was for Germany: the losing country will not survive it, at least not in its present shape: either Russia will become a US colony again or the AngloZionist Empire will collapse.

At the end of the day, political regimes can only survive by the consent of those it rules. In the United States this consent is clearly in the process of being withdrawn. In Russia it has never been stronger.

Netanyahu and CIA Director Pompeo Threaten Iran

Washington, Israel and Saudi Arabia comprise a sinister alliance against Iran, risking greater regional war than already.

Last month, Netanyahu vowed to prevent Iran from using Syria “as a base from which to destroy Israel” – invoking the long ago discredited canard.

Iran threatens no one, not Israel or any other countries. The Big Lie persists to justify unjustifiable US/Israeli/Saudi hostility toward the Islamic Republic.

Following Israeli warplane terror-bombing of a Syrian military target overnight Friday, naked aggression by any standard, Netanyahu released a disinformation statement, roaring:

“Let me reiterate Israel’s policy: We will not allow a regime hell-bent on the annihilation of the Jewish state to acquire nuclear weapons.”

“We will not allow that regime to entrench itself militarily in Syria, as it seeks to do, for the express purpose of eradicating our state.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

US citizens have been lied into two wars in recent memory, the Iraq war, and the Afghanistan war; we will not sit still for being lied into a third against Iran, for which Saudi Arabia and Israel are cheerleading, but fuly expect that the costs of "victory" (if there is one) will be exclusively borne by American blood and American money.

And I hope, if President Trump, signs off on such a military misadventure, as has been Afghanistan, Lybia, and Iraq, that he will seriously consider the following hard reality; Russia has vowed to come to Iran's aid, if attacked militarily.

How A Dubious BBC Report Gave Israel The "Green Light" For Last Night's Attack On Syria

Syrian state television has confirmed that Israel attacked a military base outside of Damascus overnight on Friday, which Israeli media reports involved both surface-to-surface missiles and airstrikes, while Syria says its air defense systems were engaged and intercepted two missiles. Like other recent strikes inside Syria, the Israeli jets reportedly fired from over Lebanese airspace, in order to avoid both Syrian anti-aircraft missile systems and provoking a Russian response. Though the extent of the damage or casualties is not yet known, Syrian media has confirmed material damage to the base, and other reports indicate mass power outages in some of parts of Damascus occurred immediately after the attack, which SANA says happened at 12:30am local time.

US recognition of Jerusalem as Israeli capital will destroy peace process – Palestine & Arab League

The Palestinian Authority and the Arab League have warned the US against recognizing Jerusalem as Israeli capital, saying it would increase instability and put an end to the peace process. Armed group Hamas threatened more violence in the city.

“The world will pay the price” for any change in the status of Jerusalem, Mahmoud Habash, one of the top advisors to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, said Saturday. Habash, who was speaking in the presence of Abbas, added that the recognition of the city as the Israeli capital will lead to “complete destruction of the peace process,” as cited by Ynet News.

Also Saturday, Abbas spoke on the phone with Jordan's King Abdullah II, Egyptian President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi, French President Emmanuel Macron and Qatar's Emir Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, asking the leaders to put pressure on US President Donald Trump to give up on his plans.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Abbas really doesn't understand the agenda here at all; I am perplexed that he doesn't realize by now that Netanyahu is one of President Trump's most trusted "President Whisperers".

The purpose of this coming recognition, is to create a situation where massive Palestinian violence ensues, giving Netanyahu the "justification" for creating mass genocide against Palestinians, men, women, and children.

That is precisely the outcome Netanyahu, and President Trump, want to achieve through this recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is going to be a point past which Russia is going to need to stop Israel from these unprovoked attacks against Syria; the only questions are, when, and how dramatically this will happen.

Arab League, Palestinians Warn US Against Recognizing Jerusalem Israeli Capital

The stern warning came a day after a senior White House official said that President Donald Trump planned to make a pertinent announcement sometime next week.
Any move by the United States to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital would “fuel extremism,” increase instability and derail the peace process, the leaders of the Arab League and the Palestinian Authority said.

On Monday, Trump is also expected to decide on the renewal of a six-month waiver on the relocation of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

“Today we say very clearly that taking such action is not justified … It will not serve peace or stability, but will fuel extremism and resort to violence,” Arab League Secretary-General Ahmed Aboul Gheit said in a statement.

Palestine Calls on Arab League After Reports to Make Jerusalem Israel's Capital

Palestinian Foreign Minister Riad al-Maliki on Sunday called on the Arab League and Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to convene to discuss the situation in Jerusalem.

The call came amid reports that U.S. President Donald Trump was preparing to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

The top Palestinian diplomat called for the emergency meetings during phone calls with Arab League chief Ahmed Abul-Gheit and OIC Secretary-General Yousef al-Othaimeen, according to a statement by the Palestinian Foreign Ministry.

Al-Maliki warned that such a U.S. move “would have grave consequences” and would “blow up the situation in the Palestinian territories and the region.”

Leo Varadkar and the Irish government must move to formally recognise Palestinian statehood without further delay.” She added: “The international community has a responsibility to support the Palestinian people and to challenge the continuing human rights abuses of Israel. “There are millions of people all over the world who support the Palestinian struggle.

Palestinians Tear Down Iron Gate in Protest of Apartheid Wall

A group of Palestinian youths reprtedly managed to bring down an iron gate that was set up by Israeli forces as part of Israel’s illegal separation wall, running through the village of Anata, in the central occupied West Bank district of Jerusalem.

Spokesperson of the Fateh movement, in the nearby Shu’fat refugee camp of occupied East Jerusalem, Thaer Fasfous, told Ma’an News Agency that several youth used hand tools to bring down the gate on Friday, as an act of protest against the wall.

Fasfous pointed out that the gate is located in the middle of the wall that runs through Anata, and separates it from the nearby illegal settlement of Pisgat Zeev.

He said that, as the youth were taking down the gate, an Israeli army patrol raided the village, sparking clashes between soldiers and youth, upon which Israeli forces fired stun grenades, tear gas, and rubber-coated steel bullets at locals.

The Coming War on Lebanon: Israel, Saudi Arabia and the U.S. Prepare for a Long-Planned Middle East War

Israel, Saudi Arabia and the U.S. have one main objective at the moment and that is to destabilize Lebanon and attempt to defeat Hezbollah before they prepare for another offensive in Syria to remove Assad from power. Before they declare an all-out war on Iran, they must neutralize their allies, Hezbollah and Syria which is by far an extremely difficult task to accomplish.

The Curse: Lebanon’s Natural Resources and the Greater Israel Project

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, with regard to the thoroughly morally depraved Butcher of Yemen, Prince Salman, Mr. Friedman wrongly conflates the term "reformist policies" with utter genocide.

And I hope that President Trump clearly understands that should the US invade Iran, Russia will most probably come to its aid militarily, as it has promised to do for decades.

And as we have seen from its triumphs in Syria, Russia does have military equipment which actually works, and well.

Lebanon will only survive if Hezbollah disarms: Saudi minister

Saudi Arabia’s foreign minister said on Friday that Lebanon had been “hijacked” by Hezbollah and could only flourish if the Iranian-backed group disarmed.

The Shi‘ite Muslim militia was set up by the powerful Iranian Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) in the 1980s and has grown steadily in influence, sharing power in the Beirut government and giving crucial support to President Bashar al-Assad in Syria’s civil war.

Its growing strength has alarmed Saudi Arabia, a Sunni Muslim monarchy that is Shi‘ite Iran’s arch-rival for regional influence.

“Lebanon will only survive or prosper if you disarm Hezbollah,” Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir told a conference in Italy. “As long as you have an armed militia, you will not have peace in Lebanon.”

Jubeir said the situation in Lebanon was “tragic” and accused Iran of fomenting unrest across the Middle East.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Saudi Prime Minister Jubeir, a word please; how is your country's genocide against Yemen NOT "fomenting unrest across the Middle East"?!?

You have what we Americans colloquially describe " the Horse Sense" to understand that should Hezbullah disarm, it makes Lebanon suseptible to a hostile takeover by either your country, or Israel.

The Lebanese people understand this, and see Hezbollah as a force for good; I doubt that they will disarm any time soon.

Heartwarming or heartless? Israeli propaganda vs. reality

The Facebook propaganda pages touting the activities of the bureaucratic arm of Israel’s occupation might be funny if the policies they attempt to whitewash weren’t so cruel.

Dedicated to showing the softer side of military occupation, the posts made by COGAT – which stands for “Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories” – paint a fantastical picture of Israel’s rule over millions of Palestinians which bears little resemblance to the brutal reality on the ground.

The word “coordination” is euphemistically used to describe Israel’s control over Palestinians’ access to health services, ability to trade, or even visit family. It was recently featured as “word of the day” on COGAT’S page.

As the occupying power, Israel is fully responsible for the welfare of the population of the West Bank and Gaza Strip, according to international law.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The prevention of Palestinians getting desperately needed health care is one of the more vicious and vile elements of Israeli occupation; it is one of Israel's many-facted aspects to its "Final Solution" for Palestinians living under its occupation.

Israeli Attacks Reported Near Damascus, Israeli Media Removes Story

Reports out of metro Damascus indicate that Israeli warplanes have carried out airstrikes in the area. Details of the attack are still unclear, as the first reports were in the Israeli media, and within a matter of hours were removed.

The Israeli reports claimed the strikes targeted the “Iranian base” south of Damascus. This military facility has never been confirmed by anybody as actually belonging to Iran, but Israeli outlets played that narrative up as part of the “Iranian threat.” Ironically, one Haaretz analysis piece which makes tangential reference to the incident, but the news article it was clearly meant to accompany is gone.

This isn’t entirely unusual within Israel, as the military censors often compel the media not to report stories. It is unusual, however, for them to let the story out and then recall it after the fact.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder just how long the Russians are going to put up with these brazen, hubristic Israeli attacks against Syria without giving them some of their own medicine.

Syria fires missiles at Israeli aircraft after Israeli missiles hit near Damascus: Report

The Syrian army has fired at least four surface-to-air missiles at Israeli aircraft as the regime launched an attack against the western countryside of Syria’s capital Damascus, reports say.

The Arabic-language al-Masdar news agency, citing an unnamed source, said the Syrian military's anti-aircraft missiles were fired from the Mezzeh Airbase in rural Damascus in the early hours of Saturday.

The source added that an Israeli fighter jet was flying at a low altitude over Lebanon’s Baalbek region near Syria's border when the Syrian missiles were launched.

The news agency, citing an unnamed military source, reported that a number of Israeli missiles were fired toward the 1st Division ammo depot in the western countryside of Damascus, adding that the Syrian Air Defense managed to intercept some of the projectiles before hitting their designated target.

IDF-linked Think Tank Admits Israel, ISIS Are Allies in Confronting Iran in Syria

A new Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center report says that ISIS and Israel are temporary allies against Iran.

A new report suggests that in the area of countering Iran’s presence in Syria, ISIS and Israel’s interests may converge, which in a way makes them allies. Despite suggesting no formal alliance between ISIS and Israel, an IDF affiliated think tank Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center reports that interests of both ISIS and Israel align, making them allies against Iran.

Regarding ISIS, the report says it,

“will likely change its combat patterns and revert to guerrilla tactics and terrorism following the end of the campaign against it in Iraq, and may carry out hit-and-run attacks against Iranian vehicles moving along the land corridor (Iranian vehicles may be perceived as attractive targets for ISIS in its new incarnation).”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why am I singularly unsurprised here?!?

Misusing Intelligence to Sell Conflict with Iran

Although nobody knows exactly where Donald Trump intends to go with his campaign of seeking confrontation with Iran, his administration already has provided disconcerting parallels with the techniques an earlier U.S. administration used in selling its launching of a war against Iraq. Among these techniques is the cherry-picking of intelligence not to inform policy-making or to enlighten the public but instead to inculcate false perceptions among the public and thereby to muster support for a policy already chosen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All the Israeli Firsters around President Trump are cheerleading for regime change in Tehran, but please understand: they only want this to happen at the cost of American blood and American money, and they don't give a damn about what the costs of such a war will be.

So I sincerely hope that President Trump realizes that should the US and/or Saudi Arabia attack Iran, Russia will most probably jump into the fray on Iran's side, as their military and political leadership have long vowed that should Iran be attacked, Russia willcome to its aid militarily.

Israel Seeking Egypt Split Using ISIS Terrorism

The Sinai Peninsula is an Egyptian territory located east of the country. It borders Gulf of Aqaba from the east, Gulf of Suez from the west, the Mediterranean Sea from the north, and the Red Sea from the south. Home to a population of about 800,000, the Sinai is of strategic position as it covers a considerable part of the Egyptian coasts, beside linking the two continents of Asia and Africa.

The significance of this Egyptian land becomes clear if we know that there have been many disputes over it. The two important sides of the disputes are Egypt and the Israeli regime. The importance of the Sinai is high to a degree that so far Tel Aviv twice invaded it, not to mention the many measures taken by the Israelis on the global diplomatic stage to bring it under their control.

Israel Grants First Golan Heights Oil Drilling License To Dick Cheney-Linked Company

Israel has granted a U.S. company the first license to explore for oil and gas in the occupied Golan Heights, John Reed of the Financial Times reports.

A local subsidiary of the New York-listed company Genie Energy — which is advised by former vice president Dick Cheney and whose shareholders include Jacob Rothschild and Rupert Murdoch — will now have exclusive rights to a 153-square mile radius in the southern part of the Golan Heights.

That geographic location will likely prove controversial. Israel seized the Golan Heights in the Six-Day War in 1967 and annexed the territory in 1981. Its administration of the area — which is not recognized by international law — has been mostly peaceful until the Syrian civil war broke out 23 months ago.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ignoring the fact that the so-called civil war was really as US effort at regime change.

Israeli warplanes bomb Palestinian forces inside the Gaza Strip

Israeli warplanes launched several airstrikes over the Gaza Strip tonight, targeting the positions of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) and Liwaa Al-Qassam (Hamas).

According to Palestinian activists, the Israeli attack in the Gaza Strip wounded at least three people near the town of Beit Hanoun.

The attacks followed mortar shelling of an Israeli outpost, which the IDF said was carried out by Islamic Jihad.

Israel to Coordinate with Google, YouTube, to Censor Palestinian Videos of Conflict

The Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister, Member of Knesset Tzipi Hotovely, held meetings this week with representatives of YouTube and Google, to find ways of cooperating to censor Palestinian videos from occupied Palestine, videos she dubbed as “inciting violence and terrorism.” Israeli daily Maariv said Hotovely will be working with Google and YouTube officials in a joint mechanism that will be in charge of “monitoring and preventing” any publication of materials deemed by Tel Aviv to be “inflammatory.”

Hotovely announced in a Hebrew-only press release that she met with YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki, and Google’s Director of Public Policy, Jennifer Oztzistzki, at Google’s Silicon Valley Offices.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: Palestinians have utterly no justification for being upset, ever, at their treatment by the Israeli military and government's occupation, and all that upsets them must be completely censored from public view.

But don't worry; these stories can, and will, and need to, get out there, and they will.

Not EVER as a basis for violence, but as a testament to what a wretchedly apartheid, self-proclaimed theocracy with nuclear weapons believes it can do to its minority population,and with absolute impunity.

Is Trump Going to Lie Our Way Into War With Iran?

A decade and a half ago, in the run-up to the invasion of Iraq, President George W. Bush’s administration conjured up not only terrifying images of nuclear mushroom clouds but also of Saddam Hussein plotting with Osama bin Laden to attack the United States.

Mr. Bush himself declared that Mr. Hussein “aids and protects terrorists, including members of Al Qaeda” while Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld called links between Iraq and Al Qaeda “accurate and not debatable.”

It wasn’t true, of course. But it helped make the case for war.

That may be why a similar lie is getting trotted out again now, except this time the target is Iraq’s neighbor, Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The President would do well to remember; a war against Iran will probably mean war with Russia, whose political and military leadership have consistently, and collectively gone on record as stating that Russia will defend Iran, should it be attacked militarily.

And, as evidenced by their astounding victories in Syria, the Russian military has weaponry which actually works.

Report: Trump Is Expected to Announce Embassy Move to Jerusalem

Trump is reportedly going to announce that the U.S. embassy in Israel will be moving to Jerusalem:

The Israeli government considers it extremely likely that US President Donald Trump will declare in the next few days that he recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and that he is instructing his officials to prepare to move the US Embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv, an Israeli TV report claimed Wednesday.

The Hadashot news report came a day after US Vice President Mike Pence said Trump was “actively considering” moving the US embassy.

Presidents have routinely issued a waiver to block the relocation of the embassy for more than twenty years. Trump signed a waiver to this effect in June, and the next deadline comes up on Friday. Like many previous presidential candidates, Trump had promised during his campaign to relocate the embassy if elected. If this report is correct, it seems that he may follow through.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Should he do this on Friday, it will be a clumsy, reckless move, demonstrating, in absolute finality, that the US government is patholotically impotent of being an honest broker of peace in the Middle East.

US BOWS TO ISRAELI/SAUDI ALLIANCE IN BLAMING IRAN

Contrary to common belief, Israel supported Iran’s Islamic Republic for more than a decade in the 1980s before shifting its favors to Saudi Arabia in the 1990s and making sure the U.S. followed suit, recalls Ted Snider.

At first, American officials couldn’t believe it. In 1993, the Israelis began pressuring the Clinton administration to view Iran as the greatest global threat. Only a short time earlier, in the 1980s, Israel had been cooperating with the Iranians militarily and selling them weapons to fight Iraq in the Iran-Iraq War.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Now, Tel Aviv wants regime change in Tehran, but only at the costs of American blood, and American money.

Israeli parliamentarians discuss clause allowing ‘Jews only’ communities

Israeli parliamentarians discussed Tuesday the legality of a proposed clause in the ‘Jewish nation-state’ draft bill that would allow for ‘Jews only’ communities, reported The Jerusalem Post.

‘Basic Law: Nation-State of the Jewish People’ is currently being shaped by a Knesset committee ahead of expected efforts by the Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s coalition to pass it into law.

One article of the draft legislation states that “every resident of Israel, without difference of religion or nationality, has the right to act to preserve his culture, heritage, language and identity”, and that a religious or national community has the right “to establish a separate communal town”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So the rest of the world must accept open borders and uncontrolled migrations, but Israel wants "Jews only" communities. Can you say "Apartheid?" I knew you could!

New Israeli draft law would jail pro-BDS activists

A new draft bill sponsored by members of Benjamin Netanyahu’s coalition would see activists who promote the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (BDS) campaign face criminal charges and jail time.

According to the proposal, reports Haaretz, “the crime in question, which already exists in the penal code, harms ‘Israel’s interests or Israel’s relations with a country, organization or institution’.”

The new element, backed by Likud MKs David Bitan (coalition whip), Anat Berko, and David Amsalem, as well as Kulanu lawmakers Yfat Shasha-Biton and Tali Plosko, is “including the promotion of anti-Israel boycotts as one of the acts that can result in indictment on this charge”.

The bill’s explanatory notes state that the law “is meant to apply to anyone who takes an active part in a movement that boycotts Israel or its products”.

Israel forces Palestinian farmers off lands in Jordan Valley

Israeli forces have forced Palestinian farmers off lands they were working on in the Jordan Valley area of the Tubas district in the northern occupied West Bank, a Palestinian media report says.

According to official Palestinian Wafa news agency, Israeli forces ordered a group of Palestinian farmers near the village of Sakout to stop working and leave the lands immediately on Wednesday morning.

The Jordan Valley forms a third of the occupied West Bank, with 88 percent of its land under full Israeli military control.

Fifty-seven percent of the land in the valley has been declared closed military zones, where Israeli army forces routinely train using live ammunition and explosive devices.

Israeli authorities have recently decided to confiscate thousands of square meters of private Palestinian lands in the northern West Bank .

Looking for an American bipartisan issue? Try the fight against BDS

In fact, nearly half the states in the country - regardless of political majority - support anti-Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) legislation, belying the popular narrative that Israel has become a polarizing issue ... That there are now 24 states in the nation to have anti-BDS laws is a testament to that bipartisanship. With Executive Order no. 261 Wisconsin became the most recent state nationwide to pass a law prohibiting discriminatory boycotts of Israel in state contracting ... Some laws require states to divest public pension funds from companies that boycott Israel. Some prevent states from contracting with companies. Some do both ... The Texas law prohibits any state pension fund from investing in any country that boycotts Israel and no government entity can purchase any goods or services from a company that boycotts Israel.

ROGER WATERS IS PUTTING HIS MONEY WHERE HIS MOUTH IS … WILL SERENADE IN PALESTINE FOR CHRISTMAS

German public broadcasters have dropped plans to air concerts next year by ex-Pink Floyd musician Roger Waters, citing what they call “accusations of antisemitism against him”.

Waters, part of one of the world’s most critically acclaimed and commercially successful rock bands from 1965 to 1985 before going solo, is a member of the Palestinian-led Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (BDS) that targets Israel over its occupation of territories where Palestinians seek statehood.

Five state television and radio affiliates of the national ARD network have pulled out of broadcasting concerts by the 74-year-old Waters in Berlin and Cologne scheduled next summer “in reaction to anti-Semitism accusations against him”, Berlin and Brandenburg public radio (RBB) said.

Dozens of Israeli settlers attack al-Aqsa Mosque

Dozens of Israeli settlers have stormed the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in the Israeli-occupied Old City of East Jerusalem al-Quds amid frequent acts of violence committed by Israeli forces and settlers against the Palestinian people.

An unnamed official from the Department of Islamic Waqf and Islamic Higher Council said a total of 52 settlers and an archeologist forced their way into the holy site through the Bab al-Magharibah under tight protection of several groups of Israeli soldiers and special police forces, Arabic-language Safa news agency reported.

The settlers performed acts deemed provocative by Palestinians in the mosque courtyard before leaving the sacred site through the Chain Gate (Bab al-Silsileh).

Israeli Defense Minister Contradicts Netanyahu: "There Is No Iranian Military Force On Syrian Land"

As we've long pointed out, anytime that Israel carries out acts of aggression against Syria, it can just blame Iran or Hezbollah and escape international criticism or condemnation. International media and Western governments have already demonstrated a penchant for towing the Israeli line whenever Iran can be conceivably blamed as a culprit - evidence or no evidence - this as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has made it official Israeli policy to oppose Iranian presence in Syria.

But on Tuesday Israel's own Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman flatly contradicted the prime minister's jingoistic alarmism by saying that there are no Iranian military forces in Syria, but instead merely stuck to acknowledging "experts and advisers". In comments to Israel's Ynet news, Lieberman admitted, "We must preserve our security interests. It is true that there are a number of Iranian experts and advisers, but there is no Iranian military force on Syrian land."

The Israelis and redefining sovereignty

The events currently occurring in the Palestinian arena, specifically the American vision for the Palestinian issue, are similar to a huge marketing campaign, as well as the sanctions that will be imposed on anyone who refuses the marketed product. This is despite the important fact that the product being marketed is not even ready yet.

The Israelis want to market a new idea, or rather, a new old idea. This idea suggests that there are various forms of sovereignty and that this could be proposed to the Palestinians. This is reminiscent of the Israelis’ past proposal of what they called functional sovereignty.

Report: ISIS, Israel temporary ‘allies’ against Iran

A new report suggests that in the narrow arena of confronting Iran’s presence in Syria, ISIS and Israel’s interests may temporarily converge, which in a way makes them allies.

The new Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center report in no way suggests any formal alliance between ISIS and Israel, and it is widely assumed that ISIS will continue to try to attack Israel via its Sinai chapter.

But in the era after ISIS as a state has fallen – when Israel’s new main concern is Iran’s presence in Syria and its attempts to smuggle game-changing weapons through Syria to Hezbollah in Lebanon – both ISIS and Israel may be targeting the same Iranians.

Lawsuit says US aid to Israel illegal under 1976 law

American aid to Israel is illegal under a decades-old law that prohibits aid to nuclear powers that have not signed the international Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), according to a lawsuit filed in federal court in Washington, DC.

The lawsuit, filed this week by Grant Smith, the director of the Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy, comes as the US and Israel have closed many of the gaps in negotiations over a new 10-year military aid package worth tens of billions of dollars.

Discussing the lawsuit in an interview with Court House News, Smith said the US has provided Israel an estimated $234 billion in foreign assistance since Congress passed the International Security Assistance and Arms Export Control Act in 1976, which bans aid to non-signatories of the NPT that posses nuclear weapons.

The silent partner in America’s sexual molestation culture, (by Michael Hoffman)

This autumn I am studying the Talmud Bavli (Bavli =Babylonian), tractate Sanhedrin, from 49b to 113A. My objective is to bring accurate knowledge of Orthodox Judaism’s holiest book to the attention of the public and to do so in accordance with exegetical principles free of hatred and bias. Answering two standard objections: 1. To the claim that I am "quoting out of context” — I urge readers to access tractate Sanhedrin and study it in an uncensored edition, and judge for yourself. I am hiding nothing and I am taking nothing out of context. Today’s study is entirely consonant with the contents of the Talmud as a whole, and for that matter, with the rabbinic halacha (law) derived from.

Israeli Govt Aims to Protect PM From Corruption Charges

The Israeli Knesset has voted 46-36 in favor of a new bill dubbed the “Netanyahu Law,” which aims to retroactively protect Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu from two different ongoing investigations into corruption.

Technically the bill would protect all elected officials from such investigations, though Netanyahu is clearly the most obvious and primary beneficiary. The bill intends to forbid police from recommending charges be brought in their investigations.

Under the law, which still has to survive additional readings in the Knesset, police involved in investigations are effectively gagged from confirming if a crime was committed by a public official. Conceivably an Attorney General is still allowed to solicit such an assessment from the police, but it has to be totally secret, and what he does with such a recommendation is up to him.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Expect this bill to be passed; the corruption of the Knesset is in full frontal display to the Israeli public right now.

Putin Is Mediating A Secret Deal Between Assad And Netanyahu, Bombshell Report Reveals

A bombshell report that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has threatened to attack all Iranian facilities and assets within 40 kilometers (25 miles) of Israel's Golan Heights is circulating in Israeli media. The story, first picked up by The Jerusalem Post based on Israeli and Arab sources, also indicates that intense and potentially breakthrough back channel diplomacy between Assad and Netanyahu is currently being mediated via Vladimir Putin.

Though unconfirmed, what appears to be an ultimatum by Netanyahu could be the catalyst that finally pushes the Levant either toward broader war, or in the direction of de-escalation and regional stability after months of intensifying and provocative Israeli airstrikes on Syria and a corresponding war of words. The report also follows on the heels of a rare and unexpected visit of Assad to Sochi, Russia where he met with Putin just prior to trilateral talks between Russia, Iran, and Turkey over the future of Syria.

Saudi-led ‘Arab NATO’ declares total war on terrorism; Iran, Iraq & Syria not invited

Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Salman has vowed to “wipe” terrorists from the “face of the earth” using resources available to the Islamic Military Alliance, a so-called ‘Arab NATO’ which claims to be targeting a “faceless enemy,” rather than any particular “sect” or “country.”

Formed in 2015 by then-deputy Crown Prince and defense minister of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salman, the IMA has so far only functioned on paper. Now the Crown Prince wants to take his brainchild to the next level by declaring a total “war against terrorism,” during the Sunday summit of IMA, also referred to as the Islamic Military Counter Terrorism Coalition (IMCTC) or the “Arab NATO.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OH, REALLY?!?!?

Forgive me, but I am nearly close to choking from nausea, invoked by the glaring hipocrisy of the words coming out of this guy's mouth, relative to the hellish realities on the ground he has created for the people of Yemen.

So please: when does Prince Salman intend to announce the end of the terror he and his coalition are raining down on Yemen with these damnable bombing raids, which are killing civillian women, children, and the medically fragile elderly here?!?

When will he stop the US-enabled blockades of Yemeni ports, leading to massive deaths by malnutrition?!?

And when will he get a reasonable, and rapid, medical response going to the horrific outbreak of cholera, which is killing thousands in Yemen?!?

Prince MBS, if you want to stop a lot of terror in the region, you had better damned well take a good, long look in a mirrior first.

Diaspora Jews have had enough of Israel and Zio-Barbarism   

Attila Somfalvi, a leading Israeli journalist reports on Ynet that American Jews are showing signs of Zio-fatigue. Some prominent leaders of the Jewish American community have openly admitted that in recent years there has been a radical shift in attitudes about Israel. Many Diaspora Jews prefer to stay away from Israel and its Zionist leagues.

According to Somfalvi, many youths active in various Jewish organisations see Israel as "a burden." "Israel is not part of our day to day existence," said students at NYU as well as young members of Gather DC, an organization comprising about six thousand Jews who live in the American capital. "We don’t really understand how Israel is connected to our Jewish identity; Israel is a tough subject so we gave up on it."

THE DARK INEVITABILITY OF ZIONISM

Put broadly, BDS is an effort to help save the positive potential inherent in modern post-colonial society: the civilizing potential to be found in international law, in human and civil rights, in a benevolent and egalitarian rule of law for all of us.

So successful has BDS been to date, and so much potential does it have to help force Israel down the same road as white-ruled South Africa, that Israel and its surrogates in the U.S. and Europe are willing to undermine the very laws and rights that help uphold what freedoms there are within the public realm. For instance, in the U.S., the very right to engage in such a boycott is under Zionist attack, and by extension, so is the constitutional protection to free speech. American Zionists seem willing to subvert their own constitutional protections in order to support a racist foreign state.

Israel arrests 280 Palestinians for Facebook posts

The Israeli occupation authorities have arrested 280 Palestinians since the start of the Quds Uprising in October 2015 for posts or “likes” on social media, the PLO’s Palestinian Prisoners’ and Freed Prisoners’ Committee said on Sunday.

According to Quds Press, the head of the studies and documentation department with the Committee said that Israel has increased the number of detentions of social media users, including women and children who posted, commented positively about or liked pro-Palestinian social media content. Abdel-Naser Ferwaneh explained that most of those detained are from occupied Jerusalem. While some were indicted and sentenced to prison terms or fined, others were held under administrative detention with neither charge nor trial.

Israel, Trump administration ‘working feverishly’ to block UN settlements database

The Israeli and US governments are “working feverishly” to block the publication of a United Nations database of companies complicit in West Bank settlements, according to The Associated Press (AP).

The UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC)-mandated list of companies was due to be published in December, but will reportedly now occur “early next year”, the latest such postponement.

“We will do everything we can to ensure that this list does not see the light of day”, Israel’s UN ambassador, Danny Danon, told AP, adding that its publication would turn the UNHRC into “the world’s biggest promoter of BDS”, the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign.

Innocent woman knocked down by Israeli ‘skunk cannon’ targeting ultra-Orthodox protesters

An innocent passerby trying to cross the street in Jerusalem on Sunday has been hit in the back of her head and sent flying several meters away by an Israeli police skunk-water cannon, deployed against ultra-Orthodox Jews protesting army conscription.

A crowd of protesters staged yet another sit-in, obstructing traffic at the corner of Jaffa Road and Nordau Street in the center of Jerusalem in protest against the compulsory military draft of ultra-Orthodox Jews. To disperse the gathering, Israeli police resorted to the so-called “skunk” cannons loaded with stinking fluids. Not without some collateral damage, though.

Israel most dangerous country in the Middle East, says former Dutch PM

The former Prime Minister of the Netherlands Dries van Agt has said that “Israel – for those who do not know – has a range of nuclear bombs and is the most dangerous country in the Middle East”.

Speaking at a session organised by the Socialist Youth Association in the city of Utrecht on the Palestinian-Israeli issue van Agt said, “Israel seems to the world public opinion as if [it is] living under constant threat as a small place among a number of Arab countries”.

“The entire world turns a blind eye to the blockade imposed on the Palestinian Gaza Strip, including the Netherlands” he said.

Nasrallah Accuses US Of "Daesh Conspiracy" As Feared 'Tehran-To-Beirut Land Bridge' Is Established

Washington's past decade of Syria policy has been driven by fears of the so-called "Shia crescent" or Iranian land bridge which would conceivably connect Tehran with the Mediterranean in a continuous arch of influence. With events rapidly unfolding in Iraq and Syria, foremost among them the defeat of ISIS and the connection of Syrian and Iraqi national forces at the shared border, that land bridge has now been established for the first time in recent history.

But now as 2017 comes to a close, the Syria-Hezbollah-Iran alliance appears victorious, and it's the House of Saud and US-backed alliance that is fragmented and in shambles. And consistent with what Hersh predicted all the way back in 2007, the US has for years supported a jihadist corridor in Syria in order to "isolate the Syrian regime, which is considered the strategic depth of the Shia expansion (Iraq and Iran)."

Israel’s Military Detention of Palestinian Children. Motion against Israel in Britain’s Parliament

Half a dozen British parliamentarians have launched a parliamentary Early Day Motion (EDM) condemning the military detention of Palestinian children at the hands of Israeli authorities.

The primary sponsor of the EDM, officially tabled on Monday, is Labour MP Richard Burden, joined by five co-sponsors: Labour’s Lisa Nandy, Andy Slaughter, and Grahame Morris, along with the Liberal Democrats’ Alistair Carmichael, and SNP MP Tommy Sheppard.

The EDM begins by noting “with concern that hundreds of Palestinian children continue to be arrested, detained and tried in Israeli military courts, despite the practice involving widespread and systematic violations of international law and being widely condemned.”

The motion also notes “allegations of ill-treatment at the hands of Israeli authorities include blindfolding, physical violence and arrest at night”, and “the disparity between the treatment of Israeli and Palestinian children by Israeli authorities”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This... is how Israel wages phschological - and physical - war on Palestinian children.

Israel refuses to return Palestinian land, handing it to settlers

The Israeli Supreme Court in occupied Jerusalem refused to issue a ruling to return Palestinian agricultural land to its original owners following the Israeli army’s confiscation of said land and declaring it as a “closed military zone”, subsequently handing it over to settlers.

According to Israel’s Haaretz newspaper, the land being referred to are pieces of Palestinian land in the Jordan Valley, located in the eastern part of the West Bank. The Israeli authorities had seized this land in accordance with a military order, considering the area a “closed military zone”. The landowners have been prohibited access to the land and cannot work on it. It was later found out that the authorities handed over this land to a group of settlers who have used it for farming work.

The newspaper said that Palestinian farmers filed a petition urging the Israeli court return their land to them, but the court refused it during its most recent hearing yesterday.
