From Iraq to Palestine, the power of the pro-Israel lobby is plain to see

The boundaries of what is and isn’t possible change constantly in politics. We like to think that in a democracy, citizens are empowered sufficiently to partake in the process of political change; we even believe that this is a unique characteristic of our progressive society where politicians listen to the electorate, and then enact laws and policies on the basis of facts in pursuit of the national interest and human rights. Such a belief if misguided.

Nevertheless, it has been a key feature of our society: slavery, once socially acceptable and legal is universally prohibited; racial and sexual discrimination is no longer tolerated; colonisation and occupation of another country is prohibited; the denial of a people’s self-determination has become an offence. The shift also occurs in the opposite direction towards the curtailment of freedoms and the weakening of equality and human dignity. The negative shift is often more subtle.

Netanyahu-Lieberman deal tears ‘mask off face of Israel’ — but ‘NYT’ keeps the mask on

The big news from Israel is that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has turned away from potential centrist Zionist partners and asked the militant nationalist Avigdor Lieberman to become his Defense Minister, and that the deal with Lieberman’s rightwing party is likely to be in place by the weekend. The news has brought an explosion of condemnation from the Israeli left and from the Haaretz newspaper, but typically the New York Times buries its head in the sand.

Islamic countries condemn Israeli photo exhibition at UN headquarters

A group of Islamic countries at the UN have condemned Israel’s organising of a photo exhibition inside the international organisation’s headquarters which describes Jerusalem as a capital for the Jewish people, Al Jazeera.net reported on Friday.

According to Al Jazeera, the group considered this a flagrant violation of the resolutions of the UN Security Council and the UN General Assembly, which consider East Jerusalem and all the Palestinian territories controlled by Israel since 1967 as occupied lands.

On 3 April, the UN refused to show three photos in the gallery because they included images which contradict the UN’s positions. This led the Israeli ambassador to the UN sending a strong letter to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.

Under Israeli pressure, the UN reportedly accepted the three photos on Thursday, which led to criticism.

Extremists have taken over in Israel, says departing defence minister

As his flagship policy, Mr Lieberman, who worked as a nightclub bouncer in Moldova before emigrating to Israel, is spearheading a bill to enable the death penalty for convicted terrorists, as part of a deal to have his six-seat party join the coalition.

Mr Ya’alon’s seat in Israeli parliament is set to be taken by an extremist activist Rabbi Yehuda Glick, who vociferously campaigns to expand Jewish presence on the Al Aqsa compound, also known as the Temple Mount.

Israel defence chief quits, cites lack of trust in Netanyahu

If Yaalon is replaced as expected by Lieberman, command of the Defence Ministry will transition from a general who led one of Israel’s most elite commando units and later was its chief of staff to a politician who held the rank of corporal, almost the lowest military rank. Lieberman’s limited military experience raises further questions about the appointment.

State lawmakers object to billboards honoring Navy veterans, questioning US foreign aid

Fourteen Pennsylvania House of Representatives members from South Central Pennsylvania are demanding that billboards they deem critical of Israel be removed from area highways.

“We are appalled that Pennsylvania lawmakers are taking time away from their duties representing the people of Pennsylvania to attack free speech and oppose American veterans,” says Alison Weir, representative of groups that placed the two billboards. The lawmakers sent a letter to Weir calling for the removal of the billboards.

One billboard read: “Help Liberty Veterans attacked by Israel,” and directed viewers to the website HonorLibertyVets.org. This billboard was on Highway 83 South near the Newberry exit and was scheduled for March 28 through April 28.

Israel’s defense minister abruptly resigns in slap at growing ‘extremism’

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s attempts to remake his governing coalition has set heads spinning — dumping his well-regarded defense minister to possibly bring aboard a polarizing maverick with few friends in Washington.

Definitely out: Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon, who resigned his post on Friday. On the way to the door, Yaalon blasted Netanyahu, saying he has lost confidence in the prime minister’s decision-making and morals.

Maybe in: Avigdor Lieberman. He’s a former foreign minister and current leader of an ultranationalist political party built around the 1 million Russian-speaking immigrants to Israel.

Israel set to form 'most right-wing government in history'

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu looked set to form the most right-wing government in Israeli history Thursday, with Avigdor Lieberman, a hardliner loathed by Palestinians, expected to join as defense minister.

Netanyahu's allies were set for fresh negotiations with representatives of Lieberman's far-right Yisrael Beitenu party to try to entice it to join the governing coalition and boost its currently wafer-thin majority in parliament.

Leaks to the Israeli media from both sides said a deal was close to being finalized.

Roots Of The Conflict: Palestine’s Nakba In The Larger Arab ‘Catastrophe’

On May 15th of every year, over the past 68 years, Palestinians have commemorated their collective exile from Palestine. The ethnic cleansing of Palestine to make room for a “Jewish homeland” came at a price of unrelenting violence and perpetual suffering. Palestinians refer to that enduring experience as “Nakba”, or “Catastrophe”.

Everything will slowly get back to normal long after ISIL has been completely crushed. The land will be liberated, the people will return to their homes and native land. One thing will remain irrevocably destroyed and lost; Iraqi and Syrian ancient heritage and history.

According to Anatoly Fomenko's hypothesis in "History: Fiction or Science?", the holy books of the Christian church were also written in the ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs, or in Hebraic, and that it is possible that the “Hebraic” version of the Bible can be found among these hieroglyphs, since the very word Bible stems from the same root as the word Babylon, or Byblos. ...

THE ADL AND THE ARMENIAN GENOCIDE: IT’S NOT OVER UNTIL IT’S OVER

In mid-May, on the Anti-Defamation League’s “blog,” CEO Jonathan Greenblatt said that the ADL now “unequivocally” acknowledges the Armenian Genocide committed by Turkey. Curiously, he doesn’t mention Turkey. The ADL, he added, “would support U.S. acknowledgment of the Armenian Genocide.” It’s surprising that such a serious subject would only be “blogged.” But let that go. For decades the ADL has been colluding with Turkey to defeat Armenian Genocide resolutions in the U.S. Congress and to avoid acknowledging that genocide. For an organization that loudly espouses human rights and insists on Holocaust recognition and legislation, the hypocrisy has been breathtaking.

French Student Group Sues Twitter (Again) For $50 Million (Again) Over Tweets It Doesn't Like

Three years ago, we wrote about a crazy story in which the Union of Jewish French Students (UEJF) was suing Twitter for $50 million, claiming that the fact that an anti-semitic hashtag started trendng violated some sort of anti-hate speech law in France. Twitter, somewhat ridiculously, actually agreed to remove the tweets in question, saying they were offensive. Even after that, UEJF demanded that Twitter also reveal the identities of everyone who tweeted the hashtag... and won (not the money, but Twitter was told to hand over the user info)! Yeah, France is not a big supporter of free speech, we get it, but this is still ridiculous.

Why I am a bit wary when sports networks start speaking for the 'Holocaust industry'

How can you tell when "remembering" horrible events is being twisted to defend the status quo and support the powerful against the weak? When a sports network airs a Nazi Holocaust-themed show.

Last week TSN ran a six-minute video feature about Hank Rosenbaum, a Polish Jew whose life was turned upside down when German troops invaded 77 years ago. The sports angle for TSN's "Yom HaShoah, the international day of remembrance for the more than 6 million Jews who died in the Holocaust" commemoration, was that Rosenbaum became a hockey fan when he arrived in Toronto six decades ago. The sports network showed him watching his 10-year-old grandson's house league game.

While the Rosenbaum story was horrifying and more socially meaningful than TSN's typical fare, does it really represent a concern for human rights by the broadcaster?

Zionism’s Roots Help Us Interpret Israel Today

It was an assessment no one expected from the deputy head of the Israeli military. In his Holocaust Day speech last week, Yair Golan compared current trends in Israel with Germany in the early 1930s. In today’s Israel, he said, could be recognised “the revolting processes that occurred in Europe … There is nothing easier than hating the stranger, nothing easier than to stir fears and intimidate.”

The furore over Gen Golan’s remarks followed a similar outcry in Britain at statements by former London mayor Ken Livingstone. He observed that Hitler had been “supporting Zionism” in 1933 when the Nazis signed a transfer agreement, allowing some German Jews to emigrate to Palestine.

ISRAELI LEADER: IRAN MOCKS WWII HOLOCAUST, PREPARES ANOTHER

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lashed out at Iran Sunday for staging a Holocaust-themed cartoon contest that mocked the Nazi genocide of six million Jews during World War II and said the Islamic Republic was busy planning for another one.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu: the Holocaust-themed cartoon contest may be in horrific taste, but you are absolutely lying when you state that Iran is busy planning for a new Holocaust.

Iranian leadership may be many things, but stupid is not one of them. They understand, clearly, that their country would be zorched into a sea of molten glass if they try anything as crazy as a military strike against Israel, because the retaliation, from both the US and Israel, would be nuclear should they dare do such a thing.

They, too, love their kids, and want them to have a decent future.

And another thing: President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad never said he wanted to wipe Israel off the map. As reported at globalresearch.ca:

So what did Ahmadinejad actually say? To quote his exact words in farsi: ”Imam ghoft een rezhim-e ishghalgar-e qods bayad az safheh-ye ruzgar mahv shavad.” That passage will mean nothing to most people, but one word might ring a bell: rezhim-e. It is the word “Regime“, pronounced just like the English word with an extra “eh” sound at the end. Ahmadinejad did not refer to Israel the country or Israel the land mass, but the Israeli regime. This is a vastly significant distinction, as one cannot wipe a regime off the map. Ahmadinejad does not even refer to Israel by name, he instead uses the specific phrase ”rezhim-e ishghalgar-e qods” (regime occupying Jerusalem).

Mr. Prime Minister, as an erudite man, you know this to be true, rather then the fabrication you've created.. And yet you continue with this lie as though it were the truth.

Can you not understand that statements like this "Netan-bloviation" just completely demolishes any shred of credibility you might have had, not only with the Israeli electorate, but also with the world at large?!?

Do you want to go down in history as one Israel's bravest prime minister?!?

Then, sir, travel to Tehran, and negotiate a comprehensive peace deal with Iran, which includes both Israel's and Palestine's right to exist, mutual trade with Iran, educational and scientific cooperation.

THAT would take... real "male attributes!!

Hillary Clinton: “If I’m President, We Will Attack Iran… We would be Able to Totally Obliterate Them.”

As a 2008 presidential aspirant, she addressed AIPAC’s annual convention saying:

The United States stands with Israel now and forever. We have shared interests….shared ideals….common values. I have a bedrock commitment to Israel’s security.

(O)ur two nations are fighting a shared threat” against Islamic extremism. I strongly support Israel’s right to self-defense (and) believe America should aid in that defense.

I am committed to making sure that Israel maintains a military edge to meet increasing threats. I am deeply concerned about the growing threat in Gaza (and) Hamas’ campaign of terror.

No such campaign exists. The only threats Israel faces are ones it invents.

Clinton repeated tired old lies saying Hamas’ charter “calls for the destruction of Israel. Iran threatens to destroy Israel.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The degree to which Clinton is able to continue to swallow, then spew, the hubristic rhetoric of Bibi Netanyahu on Iran is nothing short of completely amazing; if this was a world class sporting event, Hillary would definitely win the gold.

Please remember; a Clinton presidency will mean more wars; more income inequality; more federal debt; more outsourcing/offshoring of American jobs; more illegal immigration and subsequent diminution of American wages; and an increasingly fractured United States of America.

The Iranians may be many things; one of those, however, is not stupid. They do understand that any attempt at any attacks on Israel will result on their country being transformed into a molten sea of green glass by US/Israeli nuclear weapons.

Interestingly, one question regarding Iran which no one in the alleged press corps will ask her is, "If the US unilaterally attacks Iran, what will Russia do?!?

There is one video I would encourage everyone who reads WRH to see: it is titled "Don't tell My Mother I'm In Iran", and focuses on the adventures of a very charming Jewish videographer in Tehran, to investigate how the Jews in Iran are doing.

Israeli academic to use cash prize to help Palestinians

A professor who won the Israel Prize - considered one of the country's highest honours - has pledged to donate his cash prize to an Israeli group dedicated to helping Palestinians.

American-born Israeli David Shulman, a professor of Asian studies at the Hebrew university in Jerusalem who won the award for academic work, said he would donate the $20,000 prize to Ta'ayush - or Living together - an organisation he helped to found that advocates for Palestinians.

Shulman was given the award this week as part of Israel's Independence Day celebrations, an anniversary referred to by Palestinians as al-Nakba, or "the catastrophe".

"I hesitated to accept the prize given the deteriorating situation [in the occupied Palestinian territories] which includes the persecution of Ta'ayush and other peace and human rights activists by the establishment and the far right who seek to perpetuate the occupation," he said in a YouTube video.

Hillary Clinton supported Iraq war because of Israel, say Matthews and Landler

Last night Chris Matthews did a Hardball segment titled, “How Hillary Became a Hawk,” with Mark Landler, whose reporting for the New York Times on Clinton’s foreign policy has been so electrifying in recent weeks.

Hillary Clinton “was most willing to see interventions ending with a good outcome. That’s what made her very different from President Obama who I think generally viewed interventions as ending with a bad outcome,” Landler said.

Note:The main Dachau camp was surrendered to Brigadier General Henning Linden of the 42nd Rainbow Division by SS 2nd Lt. Heinrich Wicker. No one knows for certain what happened to 2nd Lt.

On Jewish projection...

The Israeli fear of being thrown into the sea is a projection.

The Israelis are afraid of being pushed into the sea because they themselves pushed the Palestinians into the sea (picture above). The Israelis tend to attribute their own genocidal inclinations to Arabs (in particular) and Goyim (in general).

‘Jewish fear,’ as such, is self-inflicted -- the more brutal the Israelis are, the more fearful they become of the possibility that the Palestinians may be equally murderous. Similarly, the more the Jew hates the 'goy,' the more the Jew is mortified by the possibility that the goy may also express some animosity in return.

Jewish fear better be grasped as a war against terror within. Jews are too often tormented and haunted by their own racism and supremacy which they attribute to others by means of projection..

68 Years of the Palestinian Ongoing Nakba !

Nakba, in Arabic, simply means, Catastrophe, or Tragedy; for Palestinians, it is the most tragic nightmare to happen to a whole nation in modern history.

The irony is that while Palestinian commemorating the 68th anniversary of their Catastrophe, the Palestinian exodus, Israelis celebrate what they call “independence day”.

After 68 years of Nakba this is a reminder to the Free and Democratic World, that there will be no peace in this region if Palestinian Nakba continues, and if this conflict will not have a just end.

Why do the numbers for Auschwitz-Birkenau keep changing?

The charge against the Germans at Nuremberg was based on a document written on May 6, 1945 by the Soviet Union that was accepted into evidence by the Nuremberg IMT although there was no proof whatsoever given in this document that 4 million people had been killed. The Soviet figure of 4 million was based on the estimated capacity of the ovens at Auschwitz and Birkenau. The ovens at Birkenau had been removed by the Germans two months before they abandoned the camp, but the Soviets were still able to somehow estimate their capacity.

The Soviets also charged the German war criminals with killing 1.5 million prisoners at Majdanek. That figure has now been reduced to 78,000 by the Majdanek Museum. Out of this number, 59,000 were Jews.

ISRAELI COURT CONVICTS PALESTINIAN CHILD WHO WAS NEARLY BEATEN TO DEATH BY MOB

A Palestinian child, Ahmad Manasra, 14, was convicted Tuesday of two counts of attempted murder, despite a lack of evidence, a video showing him being severely beaten and insulted by a crowd shouting racial slurs, and video showing Israeli interrogators brutalizing and intimidating the crying child with no family member or lawyer present.

Manasra was 13 at the time of his arrest, and the Israeli court decided to allow the prosecution’s request to delay his court hearing until January, when he turned 14 and was allowed, under Israeli law, to be tried as an adult. The Israeli Knesset used Manasra’s case as an example when they voted several months ago to change the age at which a Palestinian child can be tried as an adult from 14 to 12.

Israeli children, in contrast, are considered ‘minors’ until the age of 18.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Welcome to Israeli "justice" for Palestinian children; trumped up charges against a Palestinian kid who was beaten, brutalized, and intimidated, with no family member or lawyer present.

There are no real rules, just convictions, and long jail sentences; this is done to instill in the Palestinian community as a whole a sense of learned helplessness, and that true justice will never be theirs.

My wife's church is a Methodist church ... and was broken into and equipment stolen a couple days ago. Over in Honolulu, the Cathedral of St. Andrew (used as a location on some episodes of LOST) which dates back to the 1800s, has been vandalized twice in the last few weeks, including the hurling of large stones against the protective grills over the stained glass windows, breaking much of the glass.

Someone seems to be throwing a tantrum!

Egypt opens Gaza crossing for 48 hours after 85-day closure

Egypt opened its border with Gaza for the first time in three months on Wednesday, giving Palestinians a two-day respite from a closure stemming from friction between Cairo and the enclave's Islamist rulers. Egypt's shuttering of Rafah and destruction of cross-border smuggling tunnels, along with tight restrictions imposed by Israel along its own frontier with Gaza, have deepened economic misery for many of the 1.9 million Palestinians in the enclave.

Ten Ways Israel Is Just Like Saudi Arabia

On the surface, it would seem that Saudi Arabia and Israel would be the worst of enemies and indeed, they have never had diplomatic relations. After all, the Saudis have championed the cause of the Palestinians, who are oppressed by the Israelis. Israelis say they are besieged by Muslim extremists, and many of these extremists are motivated by the intolerant, Wahhabi ideology born and bred in Saudi Arabia.

Secret Meetings Between Israel, Saudi Officials Reveal Close Relationship, Mutual Interests

As Murtaza Hussain wrote for the Intercept in his article “Israel’s Clandestine Alliance With Gulf Arab States Is Going Public,”

In 2009, a U.S. State Department diplomatic cable gave one of the first glimpses of a burgeoning alliance between Israel and the Arab states of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). The cable quoted Israeli Foreign Ministry official Yacov Hadas saying, “the Gulf Arabs believe in Israel’s role because of their perception of Israel’s close relationship with the United States,” adding that GCC states “believe Israel can work magic.”

Israel and the Gulf states also shared an interest in countering what they saw as rising Iranian influence in the Middle East. So while the two sides sparred in public — Israel’s “Cast Lead” military operation had just claimed more than 1,400 lives in the Gaza Strip and was condemned by Saudi Arabia, in a letter to the United Nations, as “fierce aggression” — they enjoyed “good personal relations” behind closed doors, Hadas said, according to one cable. Hadas reportedly added that the Gulf Arabs were still “not ready to do publicly what they say in private.”

On the Misuse Anti-Semitism - An Analysis by Lawrence Davidson

The Zionists have declared that there is no difference between the State of Israel and the worldwide community of Jews and therefore, if you are opposed to Israel you are anti-Semitic. This identification of Israel and the Jews en masse is historically, demographically, and certainly religiously false. But no matter, the Zionists shout this redefinition loudly and endlessly. And, by backing their claim with political pressure and a lot of money, they have managed to get it accepted in some Western political circles. This, then, is what constitutes the misuse for political purposes of a dangerous racial prejudice.

Hillary Clinton attacks her church over Israel divestment vote

As the United Methodist Church prepares to vote on divestment from companies that profit from Israel’s military occupation in Plastelina, Hillary Clinton has penned a letter condemning the Palestinian-led boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement. The Democratic presidential frontrunner and lifelong Methodist was responding to a joint letter from two leaders of major Israel lobby organizations, David Sherman of the Israel Action Network and Susan Stern of the Jewish Federations of North America, urging her to “speak out forcefully against the divisive and destructive BDS movement” ahead of the Methodist vote.

Webmaster's Commentary:

American musicians are ‘scared sh*tless’ their careers ‘will be destroyed’ if they speak up for Palestinians — Roger Waters

For years now we have admired Roger Waters’s moral courage, his refusal to back down from his criticism of Israel even if his career is torched by his witness. And I have heard rumors of that career-blackmail being levied at the legendary musician who never met his father or grandfather (because they died freeing Europe) and who burst into rock and roll fame without even wanting that when he was in his early 20s because he was political before he was musical.

Those rumors are confirmed; now this committed soul has burst out in the English press with a description of the vicious smears the Israel lobby has used against him, which he has overcome, in an effort to get others to join him in speaking out against Israeli apartheid. Pointing out that British musicians have supported BDS– Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign– Waters says that American artists are “scared shitless” against such actions because their careers “will be destroyed.” But we need them desperately, as we did in Vietnam days.

Beware Israeli Doublespeak

There is a witch-hunt in the British Labor Party. Britain’s Opposition party leader, Jeremy Corbyn, is being hounded for not rooting out alleged anti-Semitism in his party. Those leading the charge are pro-Israel Zionists and their supporters within the party, members who are mostly allied with the former Prime Minister, the largely discredited pro-war Tony Blair. The Blairites are quite unhappy that Corbyn, who won the party’s leadership election last September with a landslide victory is a non-elitist politician, with a deep-rooted grassroots activist past, and, yes, a strong stance for Palestinian rights.

Bleak Gaza War Report Shows How Next Conflict Will Begin

A careful reading of the 66-page draft of the State Comptroller’s Report into 2014’s Operation Protective Edge paints a depressing picture. Naturally, the political arena is preoccupied with the question of which members of the political leadership will come out badly in the report and how the report’s conclusions may affect their futures. But anyone interested in the way decisions are made in Israel – and even more so, in the quality of the decisions themselves – will emerge very worried after reading this report.

Not only does the draft report point to an inherent weakness in the way Israeli policies are made in general, and with regard to Gaza in particular. At times, it seems to predict exactly how Israel will slide into the next round of fighting with Hamas. As the exchange of blows in and around the Gaza Strip last week demonstrated, that outcome may not be far away.

On IDF Brutality and the Meaning of the Holocaust

In a speech last week, Major General Yair Golan, the Israeli military's deputy chief of staff, said the Holocaust should prompt Israelis to reflect"deeply" about their own society.

"If there is anything that frightens me in the remembrance of the Holocaust, it is discerning nauseating processes that took place in Europe in general, and in Germany specifically back then, 70, 80 and 90 years ago, and seeing evidence of them here among us in the year 2016," said the Israeli military leader.

Some Israeli right wing politicians didn’t like Major General Golan’s statement. PM Benjamin Netanyahu denounced him yesterday. Education Minister Naftali Bennett, called on Golan to correct his comments or be seen as “comparing Israeli soldiers to Nazis.” Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked, said Golan was "a little confused" and that his statement reflected "a lack of understanding, if not a disrespect of the Holocaust.”

After Secret Meetings With Saudi Arabia, Israel Publicly Repairs Relationship With Turkey

By Brandon Turbeville

Shortly after secret meetings between Israeli and Saudi officials were exposed by a small minority of mainstream outlets, the “reparation of relations” between Israel and Turkey began to be reported as well.

The Syrian war has accomplished many things and, apparently, the conflict in Syria has the ability to mend publicly broken relationships between Israel and other nations in a way that no other international incidents have been able to do. Either conflict in the Middle East has magical properties or these new “friends” with Israel have found so much common ground that the two countries can no longer hide their friendship even from the general public and international onlookers at the state level.

In an effort to “mend ties,” the Undersecretary of Turkish Foreign Ministers, Feridun Sinirlioglu, held a secret meeting with the Israeli spy chief in Sweden in early April...

Secret Meetings Between Israel, Saudi Officials Reveal Close Relationship, Mutual Interests

By Brandon Turbeville

After a series of secret meetings between Saudi and Israeli officials were exposed by a select few of mainstream press outlets, both the Saudis and the Israelis are now becoming more open about the relationship between the two governments. Although, for years, GCC countries like Saudi Arabia have held a public position of hostility toward Israel, many researchers and observers have long been aware of secret cooperation between the two and that public statements were largely designed to provide a cover of Arab identity and self-interest for the benefit of public consumption.

After all, the two share common goals when it comes to Iran, Hezbollah, and Syria and all have the common ally of the United States...

Israel lobbies U.S. to soften tone of Quartet report on settlements

Israel is working to soften the tone of an upcoming report by the United States and the rest of the members of the Middle East Quartet of negotiators – Russia, the United Nations and the European Union. Israel is mainly concerned that the United States will take a harsher position against the settlements.

The report, to be issued in the last week of May, is expected to harshly criticize Israel over construction of settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, according to senior officials in Jerusalem. Among other things, Israel is working to prevent the report from mentioning future possible steps by the UN Security Council on the Israeli-Palestinian issue.

At a meeting in Munich in February, the members of the Quartet announced that they would release a report in a few months on the diplomatic freeze between Israel and the Palestinians. For the first time, the statement included the possibility of cooperation between the Quartet and the UN Security Council.

Israeli Defense Ministry Plans New Settlement in Northern West Bank

In recent years, the Israeli government has tended to resolve complaints about blatantly illegal settler outposts built on privately owned Palestinian land by retroactively legalizing the seizure of the land. This has been virtually obligatory for the far-right government, which depends heavily on settler votes for its narrow majority.

In the case of Amona, however, settler demands don’t seem to be working, with the Israeli High Court demanded the outpost be leveled by the end of 2012. You’ll notice, of course, that it is now 2016, but officials say it’ll probably have to happen by year’s end, and the court ruling makes retroactive legalization all but impossible.

Still, placating the settlers is job one, and despite expressions of outrage by them, the Israeli Defense Ministry is working on building a new, much larger settlement in the northern West Bank, which house the Amona residents plus a bunch of new settlers.

ISIS-ISRAELI RELATIONS: A MARRIAGE OF CONVENIENCE?

In a new report from the UN, it is revealed that the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) were maintaining regular contact with members of the so-called Islamic State since May of 2013. Initial reports from the IDF stated that this was only for medical care for civilians, but that story fell apart when the UN observers identified direct contact between IDF forces and ISIS soldiers, including giving medical care to ISIS fighters. Observations even included the transfer of two crates from the IDF to ISIS forces, the contents of which have not been confirmed at this time. Further the UN report identified what the Syrians label a crossing point of forces between Israel and ISIS, a point of concern brought before the UN Security Council. This report from the UN strengthens the claims by the Syrian regime that Israel is heavily involved in operations within the nation.

This is very simple; Israel completely understands that ISIS is a US funded, equipped, and trained, and is working with it to undermine Al Assad in Syria, and the current Iranian government, to the strongest extent it can.

But aside from Naz Shah and Ken Livingstone (see my observations about their treatment here) there has been almost no serious coverage of who these people are and what they have supposedly done wrong.

One of the earliest casualties was Tony Greenstein, a Jewish anti-Zionist who, as well as being a fervent supporter of Palestinian rights, has been a vociferous campaigner against Holocaust denial and anti-semitism. He has not even been told the grounds for his suspension.

Democratic Party is now split over Israel, and Clinton and Sanders represent opposing camps, says Pew

Pew Research Center released a new survey of American attitudes toward the world yesterday, and on Israel the news is clear: the Democratic Party is split, and Bernie Sanders represents the Palestinian-sympathizing camp and Hillary Clinton the Israel-sympathizing one. Key excerpt (my emphasis):

By more than two-to-one (53% vs. 19%) conservative and moderate Democrats sympathize more with Israel. [Among] Liberal Democrats, on the other hand… 33% sympathize more with Israel and 40% sympathize more with the Palestinians.

You know how everyone says that some day U.S. public opinion will come to a tipping point? Well that tipping point has taken place among liberal Democrats. Notice that since 2014, the numbers among liberal Democrats have surged and reversed:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I suspect that 33% still professing support for Israel are doing so not out of moral conviction but political and financial entanglements, or a refusal to admit they were wrong to support Israel's apartheid in the first place. Hence, we can surmise that actual support for Israel may be even weaker than the numbers indicate.

Israel enlists US Homeland Security to gag its own citizens online

There are two faces of Israel. One, which is presented to the world, shows a happy people in a land of contentment. The other, nowadays manifesting itself on Israeli social media, is full of discontent about the corruption and the mistreatment of citizens. Negative opinion polls soon “disappear” and are impossible to trace. This is especially the case where the issues concern the justice system, the welfare authorities or the police.

In Israel, it is a crime to “insult a public official’, even when the “insult” is nothing more than a blog or social media post questioning a decision or action. The fines are high, and those who write can also face a prison sentence of six months. Social media sites are constantly monitored by the authorities and the mere mention of a name can result in an arrest.

Life is becoming dangerous for activists who blog – patriots who advocate reform and campaign for justice by exposing corruption.

Uncovering ancient Ashkenaz – the birthplace of Yiddish speakers

Surprisingly, our GPS honed in on north-east Turkey, where we found four primeval villages, one of which was abandoned in the mid-7th century AD.

These ancient villages identified by the GPS tool are clustered close to the Silk Road – the ancient network of trade routes – and are named Iskenaz, Eskenaz, Ashanaz, and Ashkuz. And it is likely that these are the villages that mark the location of the lost lands of Ashkenaz.

The airborne assaults, which were launched in the early hours of Saturday morning, reportedly hit two open areas east of the city of Khan Yunis, located about 25 kilometers (15 miles) south of Gaza City, Arabic-language Safa news agency reported.

The first airstrike struck a field behind Abu Subhia factory in the al-Zana area, south of the Gaza Strip, while the second targeted an area close to Abu Taima block making workshop.

There were no immediate reports about the possible casualties from the Israeli attacks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And what is the White House's response to these bombings?!?

Total and complete silence, as though they had never happened.

The Case Against Hillary Clinton

A proven catastrophe is far worse than a merely possible catastrophe; so, if Hillary Clinton turns out to be the Democratic nominee, I shall vote for Donald Trump, and then just hope that the worst things that he had said regarding public policy were lies, and that the best things that he had said regarding public policy reflected his actual beliefs.

Hillary offers not only her lies but something real (a record that’s highly relevant to the office she’s seeking) — and it’s repulsive. Trump, by contrast, offers no relevant track-record at all on public-policy matters. That’s not a virtue on his part, it’s a lack of the worst possible vice (a vile record of actual policies while in public office), for a potential U.S. President.

Given a choice between a proven psychopath, versus merely a possible (or even a likely) psychopath, I’ll definitely opt for the latter. It’s the only intelligent thing to do. Anything else would be suckerdom.

Israel Raid Hits Gaza

Israel raid hits Gaza in response to rocket fire: army
Witnesses say missile strikes hit Hamas base causing significant damage

Gaza City: Israeli aircraft hit two Hamas targets in Gaza early Saturday in response to rocket fire, the occupation army said, as the worst flare-up of violence since a 2014 war entered a fourth day.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the rocket launch and most such fire since 2014 has been carried out by fringe Islamist groups but Israel holds Hamas responsible for all such attacks.

“Earlier today [Saturday] ... a rocket was fired from the Gaza Strip at southern Israel,” the army said in a statement.“In response ... aircraft targeted two Hamas terror infrastructures in the southern Gaza Strip.”

Ken Livingstone says creation of Israel was a 'great catastrophe' in TV interview

Questioned on the fallout from his comments, he told Sky News: "The simple fact is, so many people have gone on to the internet now, they have seen Joseph Finkelstein's brilliant interview.

"A lot of people, it's a shock to discover there had been that relationship between a small section of the Jewish community in Germany and Adolf Hitler but it's historically true.

"And the simple reality of all of that is we shouldn't be ashamed about some of the mistakes our government has made in the past and I don't think the people of Israel, don't need to be ashamed of what happened 80 years ago."

Trump on Foreign Defense Aid: Israel Should Reimburse the US

“This is how we’re going to get our wealth back… this and trade deals,” Trump claimed.

What Trump doesn’t appear to realize about American foreign aid is that it’s basically the equivalent of Uncle Sam writing a huge check to America’s defense companies…

Hamas and Israel Trade Blows in Gaza During Worst Week of Violence Since 2014

By Avi Asher-Schapiro
For much of the last week, Israel and the militant Palestinian group Hamas have been trading blows: Israeli warplanes and tanks have been firing into the densely populated Gaza strip, while Palestinian fighters lob mortars at Israeli troops — it's the sharpest uptick in hostilities since Israel's 2014 invasion of Gaza.

The escalation of violence comes as Israeli soldiers crossed into Gaza on Wednesday as part of an operation the army says will root out and destroy underground tunnels that lead into Israel.

The frontier between Israel and Gaza has been mostly quite for sometime and its unclear why Israel chose to move into Gaza this past week. But Israeli officials have hinted that the recent capture of Hamas member Mahmoud Atouna may have provided new intelligence the militant group's underground network.

Lawmakers waging “McCarthyite attack on right to boycott,” legal groups warn, as Israel BDS movement grows

Activist groups are pushing back against lawmakers’ attempt to punish Americans who boycott Israel and other U.S. allies.

Pending legislation in dozens of states around the country, legal groups warn, would make “blacklists” of organizations and individuals that endorse boycotts like those organized in order to combat U.S.-backed apartheid in South Africa.

Legal experts have blasted the anti-boycott campaign as “21st-century McCarthyism,” and the National Lawyers Guild and Center for Constitutional Rights argue anti-boycott bills are an attack on the freedom of speech and likely unconstitutional.
