Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lashes out at police with detectives 'on the verge of recommending his indictment for accepting bribes'

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has lashed out at police in a rare attack with detectives reportedly on the verge of recommending his indictment for accepting bribes.

Pressure has built on Netanyahu as police investigating him in the long-running probe reportedly prepare to submit their recommendations to the attorney general next week.

Israeli media have reported that police are expected to recommend his indictment for bribery, fraud and breach of public trust.

Israeli authorities have refused to comment publicly on the reports. The attorney general is expected to take weeks or months to decide how to proceed after receiving the recommendations.

US Envoy Slams PA Leader for Denying Jewish Connection to Jerusalem

American Middle East envoy Jason Greenblatt joined a broadening fray between the US and the Palestinians when he slammed PA President Mahmoud Abbas in a tweet on Wednesday night for his statements ignoring the Jewish connection to Jerusalem.

The dispute was over comments made by Abbas at the Jerusalem Capital of Muslim Youth 2018 festival that was held in Ramallah on Tuesday. In his speech, Abbas repeatedly emphasized that Jerusalem was a city for Muslims and Christians, without mentioning the city’s Jewish history

Netanyahu: ‘We Will Sanctify Life’

Netanyahu: ‘We Will Sanctify Life’ And Grant Legal Status to Outpost in Samaria
The decision to grant Havat Gilad legal status was in response to a terror attack last month in which Rabbi Raziel Shevach, a 35-year-old resident of the outpost, was murdered. He left behind a widow and 6 children.

Before the Cabinet meeting, Netanyahu had informed Shevach’s widow of his government’s decision to endorse the legalization of Havat Gilad.

“I told her that our policy is being carried out in two spheres. First, exacting justice.”

In that regard, Netanyahu touched upon the IDF’s ongoing pursuit of all those responsible for Rabbi Shevach’s murder.>>>

Living in an Orwellian Tyranny

Yesterday Nick Timothy, Theresa May's former aide, was accused of using an antisemitic slur in his article on Brexit. He co-authored a Telegraph report titled, George Soros, the man who 'broke the Bank of England', backing secret plot to thwart Brexit.

Not only did Timothy not criticise Soros as a Jew, he didn’t even refer to him as a Jew. But it seems the fact that Soros is a Jew was enough to censure Timothy as an ‘antisemite.’ It took no more.

Aoun: Lebanon military ready to confront Israel

Lebanese President Michel Aoun says he has ordered the country's armed forces to confront any attempt by Israel to undermine Lebanon's sovereignty, as Israeli officials stir more territorial tensions with Beirut.

Addressing a cabinet session on Thursday, Aoun vowed to “prevent any Israeli aggression on Lebanon’s land and water” in the wake of disagreements with Israel over Mediterranean oil fields as well as a planned border wall.

“We hope to put an end to this matter through diplomatic channels, yet our military has been given the orders to confront any threat to our sovereignty," Aoun asserted, noting that talks were underway "to prevent Israeli greed."

Israel Begins Construction of Border Wall Along Lebanon's Border

The wall is being built on Israeli-held territory, and will stretch from the Mediterranean Sea in the west to the area around Mount Hermon in the east.

Israel first began the construction of a concrete wall along its border with Lebanon in 1948 and still creates lines of defense around Israeli settlements.

America's Israel Chasm

In many ways, American attitudes toward the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians haven't changed at all in 40 years. But in other ways, attitudes toward this intractable Mideast conflict have changed radically.

That's the paradoxical finding of a new Pew poll.

On the surface, aggregate public opinion has been remarkably stable since 1978, with overall sympathy for the two sides in the conflict barely changing at all. Forty-five percent of Americans sided with Israel then and 46 percent do now. Likewise, 14 percent favored the Palestinians in the late 1970s, while 16 percent take that position today.

But the consistency of the aggregate numbers conceals a chasm opening up beneath the surface, with Republicans and Democrats moving in polar-opposite directions. Where 49 percent of Republicans sided with Israel in 1978, an astounding 79 percent do now. The percentage of Democrats supporting Israel, meanwhile, has fallen from 44 to 27 percent.>>>

The Palestinian Authority is Wiretapping People With The CIA’s Help, Leaked Document Charges


A leaked document alleges that the Palestinian Authority has been wiretapping its residents with the backing of the CIA.

The document was shared on the messaging service WhatsApp by an anonymous employee of the Palestinian wiretapping agency last month, according to The Associated Press. It says the agency was set up jointly by three Palestinian security services and contains transcripts of recorded phone conversations.

US and Israel Escalate War on Syria

Both countries pursue regime change, wanting pro-Western puppet governance replacing Assad.

Endless war rages despite all-out Russian efforts for diplomatic conflict resolution.

It’s nowhere in sight, war likely to continue as long as Assad remains Syrian president – even if he’s reelected in an internationally monitored open, free and fair election like in June 2014, Washington, Israel and their rogue allies not likely to accept results as valid.

For the second time since last November, the third time since 2013, Israel reportedly terror-bombed Syria’s Jamraya Research and Information Center north of Damascus – its warplanes operating from Lebanese airspace.

An unnamed Trump administration official said all options are on the table.

“Using military force is something that is still considered.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would politely like to remind President Trump and Israeli Prime Minister that Russia was invited to take care of Syria's jihadists; neither the US nor Israwl were invited.

Beirut threatens to ‘confront’ Israel over possible wall on ‘Lebanese land’

Lebanon’s Higher Defense Council said Wednesday it had issued a directive to resist Israeli plans to build a border wall on Lebanese land, as military tension between the two former foes continues to mount.

"This wall, if it is built, will be considered an assault on Lebanese land," the secretary general of Lebanon's Higher Defense Council said in a statement after meeting senior government and military officials, as cited by Reuters.

The statement also said that the Higher Defense Council “has given its instructions to confront this aggression to prevent Israel from building [the wall] on Lebanese territory.” The council did not elaborate on how it intends to confront Israel.

Whenever Israel is criticized for it manifestly criminal repression of Palestinians, Israeli officials and Zionists apologists cite Arab regimes’ repression of their own peoples as a convenient “red herring” or defensive reflex to divert attention away from Israel’s crimes against humanity, especially in the Gaza Strip.

They argue that Israeli repression of Palestinians, however, brutal and criminal, , can not be compared to the level of genocidal crimes perpetrated by some neighboring Arab regimes against their own masses as in Syria.

Gaza hospitals shut down as deadly siege tightens

Emergency generators have run out of fuel in at least 19 health facilities in the Gaza Strip as Israel’s deadly decade-old siege on the territory tightens.

The health ministry in Gaza announced Tuesday that the generators have shut down in 16 primary care clinics and three major hospitals, but that medical staff have been ordered to stay at their posts and do what they can to assist patients.

On Tuesday, the UN humanitarian coordination agency OCHA warned that “emergency fuel for critical facilities in Gaza will become exhausted within the next 10 days,” unless donors step in to prevent a “humanitarian catastrophe.”

But for patients and medical personnel on the frontlines, the catastrophe is already happening, and it is only the latest chapter in the forced collapse of Gaza’s healthcare system.

Fact-Check: Yes, George Soros-Funded Groups Are Behind Campaign Opposing Israel’s Deportation of Illegal Migrants

Organizations financed by billionaire George Soros, a champion of open border policies, have been leading the opposition here to Israel’s decision to enforce its law by seeking to deport illegal African migrant infiltrators.
Israel on Sunday announced it will begin issuing deportation notices to men without children who arrived illegally from Eritrea and Sudan largely seeking work.

The move is the first stage of an Israeli government plan to enact a Knesset-approved Infiltrator’s Bill, which allows the country to forcibly deport illegal infiltrators, with exceptions for children, the elderly, parents of dependent minors, those with refugee applications pending and victims of slavery or human trafficking. From 2007 until 2012, when Israel started constructing a barrier along its border with Egypt, about 61,000 illegals were able to infiltrate Israel, with most being economic migrants originating from Africa.

In today’s Daily Mail, Pollard writes: “Snowflakes? They’re today’s fascists!”

"Pollard often champions “freedom of speech”. This time he was probably trying to gain credit with the UK Prime Minister’s Office following the attack on Tory MP Jacob Rees-Mogg as he attempted to give a talk to students at Bristol University.

Lebanon will be blown back to the ‘Stone Age,’ Minister Katz warns

Echoing messages conveyed to Iran and Hezbollah by the prime minister and IDF spokesperson, the transportation minister tells Ynet that ‘Israel has set a red line—it won’t allow Lebanon to become a factory for the production of precision-guided missiles for Iran’; Education Minister Bennett clarifies: ‘If missiles are fired from Lebanon, Nasrallah will become Lebanon’s destroyer.’

Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz on Sunday warned Hezbollah that Lebanon would go back to “the Stone Age” and maybe even to “the age of cavemen” if it turned into an Iranian factory of precision-guided weapons.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why does this Israeli accusation appear to have all the trappings (and "total lack of proof" look like President Bush's claim that "Iraq had weapons of Mass Destruction"?!?

The intelligent thing for Israel to have done (as a Member of the UN, as is Lebanon, and as is Iran), was to request the UN weapons agency, and the IAEA teams to reach an agreement to inspect Lebanon's alleged "Iranian Weapons factories" to see if these accusations hold water.

Of course, the Israeli government isn't using these threats as a means for creating a peaceful, reasoned resolution to their fears; these threats are simply a prelude to the coming war against Lebanon and Hezbollah.

But one really has to wonder; will the coming Israeli/Lebanon war about these alleged "Iranian weapons factories here, or about a disputed oil tender the Lebanese have put out over underseas natural gas deposits which Israel claims as its own?!? As reported a couple of days ago by

The Syrian Madhouse Gets Even Crazier

Why on earth are at least 2,000 US troops mixed up in this fracas in darkest Syria? Because the pro-Israel neocons in Washington, who pretty much run US foreign policy these days, are determined to have revenge for the defeat of US-backed rebel forces in Syria. So it’s once more into the breach near Afrin and the town Manbij though America has zero national interests in Syria. The US first tried to overthrow Syria’s governments in Damascus in 1948 because it was too independent and flirting with the Soviets. Today’s intervention is part of Israel’s plan to fragment Syria and gobble up its water and fertile land resources.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am deeply concerned that a clash between Turkish and US military in Syria, will lead to broader confrontation against Russian forces here.

War in Syria, to fragment it, possibly involving Russian troops, is the most pig-headedly, ham-fistedly stupid thing the US government could do right now; unfortunately, however, just because something is the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing it could do, is absolutely zero guarantee that the US governmen will not do it.

Not mincing his words, Lieberman said that, in a worst-case scenario, Israel would conduct the operation at “full strength.” “We must not take one step forward and one step backward. We will move forward as fast as possible,” Lieberman added, speaking about the Israeli strategy in a possible conflict with its northern neighbor.

UN list of firms linked to Israeli settlements a ‘waste of time’: Nikki Haley

US Ambassador Nikki Haley on Wednesday slammed a UN report on 206 companies with ties to Israeli settlements as "a waste of time and resources" that showed an "anti-Israeli obsession."

The office of the UN high commissioner for human rights released the report that did not name the companies but could pave the way to a "blacklist" of businesses that Israeli officials fear would be targeted for an international boycott.

Holocaust Bill Could 'Whitewash' Crimes Committed by Poles - Chief Nazi Hunter

Israel Slams ‘Baseless’ Holocaust Legislation in Poland

Legislation in Poland that would outlaw blaming Poles for the crimes of the Holocaust has prompted swift and furious condemnation from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel and Israeli lawmakers across the political spectrum.

The measure, which passed in the lower house of the Polish Parliament on Friday, would make it illegal to suggest Poland bore responsibility for atrocities committed on its soil by Nazi Germany during the occupation in World War II.

“The law is baseless; I strongly oppose it,” Mr. Netanyahu said in a statement on Saturday. “One cannot change history, and the Holocaust cannot be denied.”

US Forces Arrive in Israel as Tensions Rise between Tel Aviv, Beirut

US troops arrived in Israel to take part in a major joint military exercise with Israeli forces - as tensions with the Lebanese Hezbollah Movement move from a simmer to a boil.
US forces have arrived in Israel to take part in Juniper Cobra, a biennial major military exercise, Sputnik reported.

In the last Juniper Cobra in 2016, more than 3,000 US troops took part, according to a report by Jerusalem Online.

The exercise will imitate a massive simultaneous missile attack on Israel from Southern and Northern fronts, according to Channel 10 News Agency.

This year, the exercise comes amid escalating tensions with Lebanon-based Hezbollah, which threatened to fire missiles at Israel if it doesn't stop building a wall on its Lebanese border.

Israeli analysts: Trump ‘reasserted US policy of deterrence’ in State of the Union

In his first State of the Union address, US President Donald Trump vowed on Tuesday night to limit foreign aid to countries that align with his administration’s positions and support his recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

While referring to the United Nations vote in December, in which the world body voted overwhelmingly (128-9) to reject the president’s unilateral move, Trump upped the rhetoric with a call for legislation that would withhold monetary support for countries that voted against the United States.

Trump also referenced the 2015 Iran nuclear deal
Dr. Martin Sherman, Director of the Israel Institute “Trump’s speech has injected a huge dose of truth, starting with Jerusalem. Withholding aid places pressure on UNWRA to change, and exposes the lie of perpetual Palestinian refugees. President Obama’s speeches gave his outdated anti-colonialist viewpoint. Trump dispensed with that and instead expressed an unapologetic, Judeo Christian perspective. We should welcome the change and seize opportunities being provided.

Regarding Iran, I think Trump is still under pressure from State Department bureaucrats countering his own natural instincts. His patience will eventually run and then he will toss the Iranian nuclear deal.”

Israel Troops Raid West Bank Homes, Detain 8 Palestinians

Israeli troops early Thursday raided dozens of homes in the Northern West Bank and arrested eight Palestinians, according to eyewitnesses. “Large numbers of Israeli army troops stormed the village of Deir Istiya near the city of Salfit, where they raided about 100 homes on the pretext of searching for weapons and wanted Palestinians,” local witnesses told Anadolu Agency by phone. Troops ransacked homes and prevented residents from leaving, witnesses said, adding that at least eight Palestinians from the village had been detained during the six-hour operation. Neither Palestinian nor Israeli officials have yet to issue statements regarding the witnesses’ claims. The Israeli army frequently carries out sweeping arrest campaigns in the occupied West Bank on the pretext of searching for “wanted” Palestinians...

Israel Increases Threats to Attack Lebanon

Israel has relatively frequent moments of stepping up war rhetoric, and these days that is aimed squarely at Lebanon, with officials openly threatening to force all of Beirut into bomb shelters and bragging about the impact the war will have on the Lebanese civilian population.

It’s less a question of Israel needing to attack Lebanon than them wanting to attack Lebanon, with analysts openly calling it a “war of choice.” Israel’s far-right government considers war with everyone and everything inevitable, and argues at times like this that a war now is preferable to a war later.

It’s not clear the US is totally on board with this, however, with US officials playing up their intention to keep supporting the Lebanese military, even as Israel vows to destroy it. This is an unusual public dispute.

Hamas co-founder dies after ‘accidentally’ shooting himself in head

One of the founders of Hamas died Tuesday — weeks after “accidentally” shooting himself in the head, according to reports.

Imad al-Alami, 62, was “examining his personal weapon in his home” when it inadvertently went off in his face on Jan. 9, the militant Palestinian group says.

He was rushed to Gaza City’s Shifa Hospital in critical condition. Al-Alami remained there — on life support — until his death Tuesday, the Jerusalem Post reports.

While rumors swirled about whether the senior Hamas official committed suicide or was murdered, a group spokesperson insisted that the shooting was an accident.

Demystifying US and Israeli Power

The US corporate-state is an imperial system comprised of and dependent upon multiple public-relations illusions, hardly none more accepted than the frequent claim that Israel controls US foreign policy. Proponents of this claim include, among others, Grant F. Smith of the Institute for Middle Eastern Policy and more generally the BDS movement (boycott, divest, and sanction), two which apply attention to AIPAC ascribing to AIPAC the power to control the USA Congress. [1]

The Israel-controls-the-US argument asserts that manipulation of the US Congress is achieved by the force of rhetoric, controlling US media, and through lobbying monies funneled through AIPAC (the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, pro-Israel lobbyists in Washington who work to strengthen ties between the two countries in support of Israel). We entertain the question, does Israel control US Middle East policy? The illusion of Israeli political power is promoted by most of the actors who present this stage show to us such as members of Congress, the White House and its cabinet members, department heads, and the Israeli government itself from the top down — the Prime Minister, President, and members of the Knesset. Not only do mainstream media journalists pander to and spread this myth, but also many of our best investigative journalists in alternative media never question this claim.>>>

US no “peace broker” in Palestine

US no “peace broker” in Palestine; Trump cannot destroy a “peace process” that doesn’t exist.

Trump’s call to enshrine Jerusalem as Israel’s capital by relocating the U.S. embassy there has evoked a chorus of denunciations — coming both from true outrage and as lip service. The main claim is that the president has wrecked the peace process. However, although his anti-Palestinian action deserves condemnation, Trump cannot destroy a “peace process” that doesn’t exist.

The state of Israel was founded in 1948 by Zionists — promoters of an exclusively Jewish nation — after the UN partition of Palestine the year before.>>>

WATCH as Iranian leader says the US uses ISIS to destabilize Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan to protect Israel

SOT, Ayatollah Khamenei, Supreme Leader of Iran (Farsi): "Be aware, the hands that created Daesh [ISIS], either in Iraq or Syria, and committed all of those crimes through Daesh, using Daesh as a means to carry out attacks against entire populations, are the same hands that are now transferring Daesh to Afghanistan," he said. "They were defeated, previously, in Iraq and Syria. Now, they seek to ignite terror all over again in Afghanistan. It was only during the onset that they killed so many people, over the last month or approximately forty days," he warned. "They want to start the chaos here again and this is the start. From one month or forty days ago onward, they have committed a massacre over there," he explained. He then explained how the US destabilizes the region to protect Israel. "What’s important, for the US, is to cause continuous unrest in our region.

Gaza's Sick Newborn Fall Victim To Power Outages

Gaza Strip — Palestinians are still waiting to realize benefits from the reconciliation between Hamas in the Gaza Strip and the Fatah-led government in the West Bank. They've been waiting since October, and some Gaza residents are quickly running out of time.

Unemployment rates remain high in the Gaza Strip, sewer networks are deteriorating and power cuts have become crippling under a decadelong blockade by Israel. Deadly house fires have occurred repeatedly as citizens resort to using candles to light their homes. And that's not the only lethal consequence of the power cuts.

The blockaded Gaza Strip is "far beyond humanitarian crises", Nickolay Mladenov, UN special envoy for the Middle East peace process, has warned.
"Returning Gaza to legitimate Palestinian control [i.e., the PA rather than Hamas] and ending all the militant activity there is critical," the UN envoy said.

He added: "This is critical to Israel's security, Egypt's security, the people of Gaza, and the Palestinians in general".

"We must work with the PA and help them develop a plan as to how they are going to return to Gaza," Mladenov said.

Otherwise, the envoy warned, Gaza risks "blowing up in our faces again -- this time in a far more violent and deadly manner than in the past".

Miscalculations In Israel Could Pave Way To Wider War

Last week, Israeli political leaders were rolling with guffaws and ribbing each other in delight as Vice-President Mike Pence proved that, as a Christian Zionist, he was more Zionist than the Zionists in the Knesset (minus, of course, its evicted Arab members – see here). But one might wonder what the more sober Israeli security echelon figures were thinking as they listened to Pence’s Knesset speech, which was rife with Biblical references and declarations of his “admiration for the People of the Book.”

The American Civil Liberties Union won an early victory today in its federal lawsuit arguing that a Kansas law requiring a public school educator to certify that she won’t boycott Israel violates her First Amendment rights.

A federal judge issued a preliminary injunction blocking enforcement of the law while the case filed in October proceeds. It is the first ruling addressing a recent wave of laws nationwide aiming to punish people who boycott Israel.

The law, which took effect on July 1, requires that any person or company that contracts with the state submit a written certification that they are “not currently engaged in a boycott of Israel.” The ACLU is also currently fighting a case filed in December against a similar law in Arizona.

Very few details have emerged from the lengthy Moscow talks between Vladimir Putin and Benjamin Netanyahu, the duo's seventh face to face meeting in two years, in which the two leaders who are currently reshaping the middle east in the power vacuum left by the US, were expected to discuss military cooperation on Syria and Iran’s influence in the region.

WATCH: Egyptian Historian Unhinged – Jews Killed and Tortured Thousands of Germans in ‘Counter Holocaust’

Egyptologist Bassam El Shammaa, in an interview aired on Egyptian television last month, outlandishly claimed that the death of six million Jews was “disputable” since “at the time, there weren’t six million Jews in the world.”

“Because of those six million who were burned in the Holocaust, (the Jews say:) ‘Help us! Hitler burned us,'” El Shammaa said, according to a translation by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

El Shammaa continued, “The Jews claim that Hitler and the Nazis burned six million of them and put them in camps.”

“They send you to visit there, in Germany, and you see the burnt bones and all that. First of all, the figure of six million is under dispute. This is a very large figure. At the time, there weren’t six million Jews in the world. So this figure is disputed among historians,” he said.

Israel embarrassed by its Holocaust-denying allies in Poland

A crisis is brewing between Warsaw and Tel Aviv over a new Polish law criminalizing mention of the role some Poles played in the German genocide of Jews during World War II.

The law passed in the lower house and is expected to pass in the senate and be signed by the president before it takes effect.

From Israel’s perspective, the problem is how to appear sufficiently upset in order to maintain the self-declared Jewish state’s self-appointed role as the guardian of the memory of the millions murdered.

It’s an awkward balancing act since in the 21st century, anti-Semites and even some Holocaust deniers are among Israel’s closest and most fervent allies.

Putin gifts Netanyahu an original letter from Oscar Schindler

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has received a gift from Russian President Vladimir Putin - an original letter from German industrialist Oscar Schindler, famous for his salvation of Jews during the Second World War.

Netanyahu, who came with a one-day visit to Moscow, is reported to be touched by the gift and is going to transfer it to the Jerusalem memorial complex "Yad Vashem" - the world's largest center for studying the history of the Holocaust and preserving the memory of the victims.

"At the end of the meeting, President Putin presented Prime Minister Netanyahu with a gift, an original letter by Oscar Schindler to his wife. The head of the government was very touched by this gift, timed to coincide with the International Holocaust Remembrance Day," said the Israeli press service.

Two Israeli Officers Involved In Lebanon Car Bomb Attack Against Hamas Official

A recent report has exposed that two Israeli agents were involved in the car bomb explosion in the southern Lebanese city of Sidon, which slightly wounded a member of the Palestinian Islamic resistance movement, Hamas, earlier this month.

According to a report published by Lebanon’s Arabic-language al-Akhbar newspaper on Monday, the pair was aided by two locals in the assassination operation against Mohammed Hamdan on January 14. They left Lebanon using Georgian, Swedish and Iraqi passports.

The report added that Lebanese security officials have now managed to identify the two Israeli officers, obtain their photographs and copies of their identity documents, the date of their entry into and exit from Lebanon, their respective roles in the operation and the nationality they used to operate under disguise.

It is no secret that Arab countries, especially, but not only, the so-called “moderate” ones that include Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Jordan – who are defined as such in western circles largely for their stance toward Israel – have mostly been all icing and no cake when it comes to Palestine.

Nevertheless, they have also and in public long held (mostly) sharp red lines: neighbors Jordan and Egypt apart, there would be no full diplomatic relations with Israel until the Palestinian “question” was solved. And prescriptions for that solution had to include a (vaguely defined) “just resolution” of the refugee problem, as well as (the more clearly spelled out) statehood and independence for Palestinians in the entirety of the West Bank and Gaza Strip with a capital in East Jerusalem.
Arab state weakness generally conforms to a pattern across the region: poor governance as a result of autocratic clientelist state systems that are resistant to outside ideas but reliant on outside funding and patronage or single-resource economies. Corruption, nepotism, toadyism and stagnation follow as a matter of course, with – to paraphrase – sectarianism the last refuge of the scoundrel.

The last few years of revolutions, counter-revolutions, civil wars, wars and invasions right across the Arab regions have also seen the Palestinian issue slide down the list of priorities and ended its role as a safe outlet for popular anger. And then there is Saudi Arabia.
