A Crash Course on the True Causes of “Anti-Semitism”, Part II

First, anti-Semites everywhere!

It has been over a year since I wrote an article entitled “A Crash Course on the True Causes of “Anti-Semitism.” I tried to illustrate how the kind of ideology and worldview of what ought to be called Rabbinical Phariseeism but is, alas, usually referred to as “Orthodox Judaism,” results in an inevitable hostile backlash from those whom this ideology and worldview even deny the status of “human being.” Today, I want to do something a little different: look at a political tactic which appears to give Jews a very desirable position but which in reality places them all at risk: the use of the accusation of “anti-Semitism” on practically anybody who dares to be critical of anybody and anything Jewish.

Finally a US lawmaker calls Israel an apartheid state

Perhaps the most vocal champion of Palestinian rights in the US House of Representatives is Betty McCollum, elected to Congress since 2000 from St. Paul, Minnesota. Since 2015, she has led efforts in Congress to address the rights of Palestinian children living under Israeli military occupation.

Nearly a year ago she introduced HR 4391, the first bill in Congress which seeks to certify that US tax dollars do not fund Israeli military detention and abuse of Palestinian children.

“As an American and as a mother, I don’t think it’s a particularly controversial or a statement of moral courage to condemn a government that systematically arrests and abuses children,” McCollum said recently at a conference for Palestinian rights held in Minnesota.

Israeli judgment in Lorde boycott lawsuit can’t be enforced

An Israeli court in Jerusalem has ordered two New Zealand activists to pay more than $12,000 in damages because the pop singer Lorde canceled a concert in Tel Aviv last year.

The two activists have rejected the ruling, which legal experts say cannot be enforced anyway.

Nadia Abu-Shanab and Justine Sachs say they won’t pay and are instead using the publicity generated by the case to raise money to support mental healthcare in Gaza.

The lawsuit was filed earlier this year on behalf of three Israeli fans of Lorde, under Israel’s anti-boycott law.

Beating stress with stories

A site of immense value to global heritage can be found in central Gaza.

With parts of it reported to be 1,700 years old, it hosted both a mosque and a monastery. Featuring three domes and ancient Greek inscriptions, the site is named after Saint George.

Though best known as England’s patron saint, George is widely believed to have been born and raised in Palestine.

In more recent times, Saint George’s Monastery – as the 200-square-meter complex is called – started falling into disrepair.

Nawa, a cultural group in Deir al-Balah, the city where the monastery is located, resolved to preserve the site and ensure it is of benefit to the local community.

In 2014, Nawa assumed responsibility for a project aimed at developing a children’s library on the site. The project was undertaken in cooperation with the United Nations cultural body UNESCO, which has restored the monastery.

Kamikaze from California

The cult of the Holocaust retains a unique, court-enforced prohibition against any investigation that might cast a doubt on its sacred dogma ... Ron Unz, this kamikaze of critical mind from California, has stepped on the third rail knowingly, in full awareness of the consequences. He did not stop at doubting the established mantra, he also published and made available to readers and internet users some more important books on the subject ... Whether the Holocaust narrative is based on sterling facts or on exaggerations, it is good to reject it. Even if the 'deniers' are factually wrong (let us presume it for the sake of argument), they are still right with their conclusions. And Ron Unz had made an important contribution for the benefit of mankind by his publication.

Israeli court: NZ activists must pay for Lorde cancellation

An Israeli court has ordered two New Zealand women to pay over $12,000 in damages for allegedly helping persuade the pop singer Lorde to cancel a performance in Israel.

The suit was filed under a law that allows civil lawsuits against anyone who calls for a boycott against Israel. Thursday's ruling is believed to be the first time the 2011 law has been applied.

The two New Zealanders, Justine Sachs and Nadia Abu-Shanab, had appealed to the singer in an open letter to "join the artistic boycott of Israel". Lorde acknowledged the letter and cancelled her show days later.

US Navy docks in Israel for first time in 20 years

US Navy destroyer the USS Ross has docked in Ashdod, a southern port in Israel, Reuters reported. The last time a US ship sailed in the Israeli port was roughly 20 years ago. They would previously dock mostly in the northern ports, something which makes the USS Ross’ docking even more unusual.

The destroyer was met by the country’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, who welcomed the sailors personally and held a speech on the ship’s deck. He noted that the USS Ross’ visit marks a new level of relations between Israel and the US.

Benjamin Netanyahu is no stranger to the American spotlight. A career Israeli politician who attended school in the United States, he specializes in the kind of rhetoric that his American counterparts revel in—a kind of narcissism that’s more used car salesman than educator.

Netanyahu specializes in selling danger to the American people.>>>

Trump Aide Hired Israeli Black Ops Agents to Blackmail JCPOA Supporters

Aides to US President Donald Trump hired an Israeli private intelligence firm by the name of Black Cube to dig up dirt on key Obama negotiators who worked on the Iran deal, according to new reports. Black Cube is the same firm hired by disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein to smear his victims.

Firm Linked to Israeli Intelligence Ran Pro-Trump Propaganda During Presidential Election

Rick Gates, the former deputy chairman of the Trump Campaign was allegedly in contact with an Israeli intelligence firm about a social-media disinformation campaign targeted at Ted Cruz and Hillary Clinton and to the benefit of Trump, according to the New York Times
***
Sputnik interviewed investigative journalist Max Blumenthal according to whom, Gates was approached by Zamel who is supposedly very well connected to the Israeli lobby in the US.

What we have here is one of a dizzying array of cases of Israeli direct interference in America’s political system and more specifically in the 2016 elections,” Blumenthal said.

The report that Gates attempted to work with an Israeli firm to create a pro-Trump “troll farm,” as reported by Sputnik, is the latest in the “Israelgate” saga. Sputnik also cited journalists who claim that “Israelgate” is much more substantial than “Russiagate.”

‘Incitement’ trial illustrates systemic discrimination against Palestinians citizens of Israel

The remand hearing in the trial of Raja Eghbarieh, former secretary-general of Abnaa al-Balad movement, who is accused of “incitement to terrorism” following publications on Facebook, has become a fascinating legal battle that raises fundamental questions about the policy of the Israeli police and prosecution regarding the freedom of expression of Palestinian citizens of Israel.

Video: As the olive harvest begins, so do the settler attacks

The time had finally come: the residents of Turmusayya, a lush Palestinian village nestled in a valley between Ramallah and Nablus in the central occupied West Bank, had gotten permission from Israeli authorities to go harvest their olive trees.

This chance only came twice a year: two days in the spring to cultivate their land, and two days in the fall to harvest the olives.

Filled with excitement and a sense of urgency, the villagers made their way to their farmlands, which are surrounded by an Israeli settlement and outpost. When they arrived, they were devastated to find dozens of trees chopped down, uprooted, and rotting.

The 40 olive trees belonged to 78-year-old Palestinian Mahmoud al-Araj, who had been tending to the trees since he was a boy.

“Some of these trees are 40, 50, 60, and 70 years old,” al-Araj told Mondoweiss, as he sat under the shade of a large olive tree that had been slashed at its trunk.

US’ Pompeo: ‘We want the whole Middle East to look like Israel’

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said yesterday that “Israel is everything we want the entire Middle East to look like going forward” and that US-Israel relations are “stronger than ever”.

Speaking at an award ceremony held by the Jewish Institute for National Security of America in Washington DC, Pompeo hailed Israel as “democratic and prosperous”, adding “it desires peace, it is a home to a free press and a thriving economy,” Arutz Sheva reported.

Pompeo then compared Israel to Iran, citing the latter’s “corrupt leaders [who] assault the human rights of their own people and finance terrorism in every corner of the Middle East”. Pompeo lamented that the US administration under former President Barack Obama “had more respect for the leaders of Iran than it did for the State of Israel,” stressing that

under President Trump’s leadership, the United States is standing where it should firmly be: On the side of Israel.

Kiev Preparing Provocation Against Russian Border Guard in the Azov Sea, warn sources

Ukraine is preparing a provocation in the Sea of ??Azov with the aim of discrediting the Russian Border Guard, a source in the Crimea claimed.

“On October 11, agents of the Ukrainian Border Service plan to organize the departure of a patrol vessel from the port of Mariupol to the Sea of ??Azov with a group of Ukrainian media journalists on board. A video report on alleged aggressive actions by the Border Guard of the Russian Federal Security Service in relation to Ukrainian civilian vessels as well as on the blockade of Ukrainian seaports in the Azov Sea are being reported,” the source said.

Recently, Crimean leader Sergei Aksenov has reported that the Russian Border Guard has tightened control over the waters of the Black and Azov seas because of naval maneuvers by Ukrainian military personnel .

STARVING UKRAINE ARMY LOOTING AND PILLAGING DONBASS LOCALS

INTRIGUE SURROUNDS THE WAR, WITH STARVING UKRAINE ARMY LOOTING AND PILLAGING DONBASS LOCALS

A starving and demoralized Ukrainian military, in the part of Donbass under their control, are pillaging grocery stores and taking food from the local population. This is alarming for a number of reasons beyond the obvious fact of crimes being committed against a civilian population. In this Ukrainian army, we are expected to believe that their stocks and force projection has been growing.

It is through this mechanism that Poroshenko seems to want to push his drive for war, in order to secure the election, by turning out the support of the Gacilian and Ukropian populace. But at the same time, we are seeing some Kievan oligarchs talk of peace and love and rejoining with the Donbass not through war, but through dialogue, restoration of pensions, and many things which surely are compatible with Yulia Tymoshenko’s electoral strategy

American Grad Student in ‘Longest Ever’ Boycott-Related Detention in Israel

American graduate student Lara Alqasem has been sitting in jail in Israel for a week now after she was accused of supporting the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement upon arriving in the country.

Alqasem, 22, was thrown in jail despite having a valid student visa, as she was accepted into Hebrew University in Jerusalem to study human rights. Alqasem's grandparents are Palestinian.

The BDS movement calls for an international boycott of products from Israel and divestment from Israeli companies in a bid to pressure the country into compliance with international law, particularly as it pertains to illegal settlements and human rights abuses.

American Pravda: Holocaust Denial

Carefully reading his article and then glancing through the contents, I decided that his accusation was technically false but substantially true. Apparently the actual theme of the issue was “Historical Revisionism” and except for a couple of paragraphs buried here and there among the 76 pages, Holocaust Denial never came up, so characterizing it as a Holocaust Denial issue was obviously a grotesque exaggeration. But on the other hand, although few of the authors were familiar to me, it seemed undeniably true that they were numbered among America’s more prominent Holocaust Deniers, and most of them were deeply associated with organizations situated in that same camp. Furthermore, there were strong indications that their positions on that topic must certainly have been known to the Reason editors who commissioned their pieces.

Israeli reporter for ‘New York Times’ praises AIPAC at closed event: ‘You’ve got our backs’

Ronen Bergman, a staff writer for The New York Times Magazine, gave a talk to the Israel lobby group AIPAC in White Plains Monday night and lavished praise on AIPAC for its support of Israel.

“You know, I’ve been all over the U.S. with AIPAC and it’s always a great pleasure, as an Israeli. I always tell AIPAC, you do so much in the U.S., and I know that Israel is not the spirit of where you work, but you need to do a little more to explain to Israelis how much they owe AIPAC. Israelis are not aware. I am aware… I know that you’ve got our backs. It’s such a great feeling.”

AIPAC, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, is famous for its work to prevent any “daylight” between the U.S. government and the Israeli government on policy and maintain support for Israel in the U.S. Congress. It has been the subject of numerous investigations– generally not in the US mainstream press, and certainly not the New York Times.

‘Who said that I have to be a refugee forever?’–Palestinians in Gaza reflect on living in ‘world’s largest open-air prison’

Young Palestinians often describe their upbringing in the Gaza Strip as serving a sentence in “the world’s largest open-air prison.” Many struggle to imagine conditions improving after experiencing more than a decade of blockade that began in 2007 as Hamas came to power.

Over recent years, movement in and out of Gaza has tapered off with the number of exit permits into Israel for healthcare and all travel through Rafah dropping to around half of the 2012 levels. Alongside this, frustration and despair became rampant after successive failures between Israeli and Palestinian leaders to reach a lasting peace agreement to end decades of conflict.

One Palestinian told Mondoweiss, he believes the decade long siege that restricts travel in and out of the Strip is “eternal.”

France ends requirement to label goods from West Bank settlements

French authorities have reportedly suspended their insistence on special labeling for West Bank products following a lawsuit alleging that the practice is discriminatory. The France office of the NGO Amnesty International complained about the suspension in a statement Wednesday. “Instead of complying with the request to end imports [from the West Bank], the government has chosen to roll back and suspend the demand for labeling,” the human rights group wrote.

Israel barred medics from entering Gaza, citing links to BDS

Israeli authorities have refused entry to the occupied Gaza Strip to two members of a US medical delegation because they are Jewish, reported Haaretz.

Initially, the refusal was extended to the entire group, from the Washington branch of Physicians for Social Responsibility, citing the organisation’s alleged involvement with the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.

After Israeli human rights NGO Gisha petitioned the Supreme Court, Haaretz reported, “the state backtracked on those two reasons and said it would permit eight of the delegation’s 10 members to enter the Strip as planned, on October 21”.

However, in regard to two of the members — “a neurosurgeon and a social worker with considerable experience treating people with trauma disorders” — the state said they required “additional security checks”. The state’s final response is reportedly due tomorrow.

Israel forces detain Palestinian kids on way to school

Israeli human rights organisation B’Tselem has published a video that shows Israeli occupation forces detaining two young Palestinian children in the West Bank city of Hebron.

According to the NGO, on 13 September at around 7:30am Israeli Border Police officers detained two Palestinian boys who live in the Old City of Hebron: 13-year-old Q.R. and eight-year-old ‘A.H..

The pair were seized “on their way to school on a-Sahla Street”. According to the Israeli officers, “they had thrown stones at the nearby Checkpoint 160”.

After roughly grabbing the two children, the occupation forces “took the two to the Pharmacy Checkpoint, some 50 metres from the school”.

“There,” B’Tselem continued, “they were made to sit and forbidden to talk to relatives who came to the checkpoint.” After roughly an hour and a half, they were taken to a police station.

Jews assault Palestinian teens in Jerusalem, police arrest boy’s brother

“Two Palestinian boys aged 16 and 18 were assaulted in Jerusalem on Wednesday by Jews believed to belong to a sect of the Bratslav Hasids”, reported Haaretz. However, when police arrived at the scene, they “arrested a Palestinian who had called for help rather than any of the Jewish suspects”.

According to the article, “the youths who were hurt on Wednesday said that they had been walking down the street when a number of youths cursed at them and yelled at them to go away. When they tried to leave they were smacked and kicked.”

“A Haredi adult helped extricate the youths from the area,” Haaretz noted.

After the two boys phoned Kamal Jabarin, “a youth counsellor for the city and brother of one of the assaulted teens,” Jabarin “tried to help get them out of the area, but the assailants followed close behind, shouting curses at them.”

Netanyahu’s adventures in the AIPAC wonderland

Benjamin Netanyahu’s remarks at the 2018 conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), are key to an understanding of how Israel is run. The Israeli leader is not only his country’s longest-serving Prime Minister, but is also different from his predecessors in many ways. One difference has affected his personality and behaviour markedly; he was raised in the United States and imbibed its culture and political tactics. This has affected his own political behaviour as well as his world view and self-perception.

The 14 Republican candidates are running for the House. There are two incumbents and 12 challengers.

Additionally, two House candidates, both Democrats, have Jewish fathers and say that shaped their outlook, but they do not identify as Jewish. At least three House hopefuls in the same party — two incumbents and one challenger — have a Jewish spouse and are raising their children as Jewish.

Erdan: US Student Will Be Released If She Condemns BDS

Israeli minister of Strategic Affairs Gilad Erdan, on Tuesday, said he would reconsider his official stance on denying entry to an American student over alleged links to the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement if she publicly condemned a boycott of Israel.

Last week, Lara Alqasem was barred from entering the country despite obtaining a student visa from the Israeli constulate in Miami, because Israeli authorities claim she supported and took part in campaigns boycotting Israel. Since then, according to the PNN, she has been detained at Ben-Gurion Airport, pending a final ruling on her case. Her first appeal was denied. The second appeal is expected to be heard in the coming days.

In her testimony to the appeals court last week, Alqasem said, “I don’t support BDS. If I supported it, I wouldn’t be able to come to Israel as a student.”

Jewish Lesson on Racism

The JVL (Jewish Voice for Labour), a pro Corbyn racially exclusive Jews-only cell that does not accept non Jews into its ranks, is attempting to teach us about racism and anti Semitism.

Instead of opposing all forms of racism and bigotry on a universal basis, the Jews only ‘left’ group has adopted the ‘anti Semitism’ cry. Together with FSoI (Free Speech on Israel), a ‘predominantly Jewish campaign group,’ it has published a disturbing document that confirms that their primary concern is Jewish suffering.

This phenomenon of thought police is unfortunate, and we see this happening all over social media. However, it doesn’t take long before we see Silverstein engages in this very same reprehensible practice, blocking anyone who challenges his opinion or who expresses a view point he doesn’t agree with.

Is Lara Alqasem undermining Palestinian boycott campaign?

For some, Lara Alqasem may be taking a noble stance by insisting that she ought to be allowed to study at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, despite the Israeli government’s effort to deport her.

It is intuitive and natural to stand by any Palestinian, especially when they are in Israeli detention, and to that extent she deserves solidarity.

But her actions merit a closer look from the perspective of their impact on efforts led by Palestinians to hold Israel accountable for catastrophic and ongoing violations of their rights.

Israel Arrests US Student for Supporting Palestinian Cause

US citizen Lara Alqasem, 22, has been held in detention in Israel’s Ben-Gurion Airport since last Tuesday, for supporting a Palestinian-led boycott campaign against the regime.
Alqasem, who has a valid student’s visa and was registered to study a graduate course at Israel's Hebrew University, was detained by Israeli authorities at the airport for supporting the Palestinian cause, presstv reported.

Alqasem, whose grandparents are from Palestine, is a former president of the University of Florida chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine.

Eliot Engel, the Democratic congressman whose New York district neighbors that of rising star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, said last night that Ocasio-Cortez and three other progressive Democrats “need to be educated” to support Israel.

“We are going to continue to work in Congress to make sure that we have overwhelming support for Israel on both sides of the aisle,” Engel told a White Plains, NY, synagogue audience gathered by the Israel lobby group AIPAC. “I know there was an interesting story in the New York Times today. I am certainly cognizant of the fact that people who are coming in as far as I’m concerned on the Democratic side, will be educated and need to be educated. But we have overwhelming support for Israel in the Congress. And… it will continue that way. We will maintain it that way.”

For Zionists, the ‘two state solution’ has always meant more ethnic cleansing

A Palestinian state has always been a fiction for Zionists. Therefore, the notion of partition in any form of historical Palestine was only ever endorsed by Zionists as a political-diplomatic means towards overtaking more territory and dispossessing more Palestinians.

To demonstrate this, I shall first go back to an early partition plan – that of the British Royal Peel Commission of 1937, to gradually reach our present day.

Benjamin Netanyahu Is No Friend to America

Netanyahu specializes in selling danger to the American people. This is an art he has practiced on numerous occasions, whether it be at the gatherings of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), his many appearances before the U.S. Congress, at televised events or during the general debate in the United Nations General Assembly, an annual gathering of global leaders and diplomats where each nation’s representative is provided the opportunity to address counterparts and the world on issues he or she deems to be of particular import.

Bibi (as he is known, affectionately or otherwise) delivered his latest address to the General Assembly on Sept. 27. Like others he had delivered previously, this one was a tour de force of angst, fear and anger with a nearly singular focus on the issue that has seized Netanyahu for more than two decades—Iran and its alleged nuclear weapons program.

Israel will continue Syria strikes despite S-300, Netanyahu tells Moscow

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he told Russia’s vice premier in talks on Tuesday that Israel must continue to hit hostile targets in neighboring Syria, despite Moscow’s decision to equip Damascus with advanced air defense missiles.

Netanyahu said at a press conference that he told Maxim Akimov in talks in Jerusalem that Israel would continue to fight what it says are Iranian attempts to entrench itself militarily in Syria and channel advanced weaponry to its Lebanese ally, the Hezbollah terror group.

Despite the delivery of the S-300 air defense systems to the Syrian military, Israel was committed as a matter of self-defense to continue its “legitimate activity in Syria against Iran and its proxies, which state their intention to destroy us,” Netanyahu said.

Israel MK called ‘war-monger’ and ‘devil’ at EU Parliament

Chairman of Foreign Affairs and Defence Committee at the Israeli Knesset Avi Dichter was described on Monday as a “warmonger” and “war criminal” at the EU Parliament, international and Israeli news agencies reported.

Dichter was there, Israeli media said, to speak about the two Israeli Jewish settlers who were killed in the occupied West Bank last week. However, he encountered a “severe wave of criticism”, Israeli media said.

Portuguese MEP Ana Gomes said that the president had been “honoured” to invite Dichter to address the EU Parliament, but she was “disgusted”.

“As head of the Shin Bet [Israel Security Agency], he masterminded the policy of targeted killings, in which many died in extrajudicial killings. He also initiated the racist nation-state bill, which I think makes Palestinian citizens of Arab origin second class citizens,” Gomes said.

Netanyahu: ‘Infiltrators’ don’t have same right to enter as Jews

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu renewed his attacks on non-Jewish “infiltrators” yesterday evening, speaking at a Likud conference in Tel Aviv.

According to Arutz Sheva, Netanyahu linked the new Jewish nation-state law to the issue of non-Jewish African migrants (“infiltrators”) and efforts made by his government to prevent their entry.

“The infiltrator problem is an extremely difficult and painful one. We need to ensure the welfare of those who are needy. It is inconceivable that a woman who lives on the fourth floor should not be able to leave her home because she’s afraid, and there are filth and crime in the stairwell,” he said.

Netanyahu claimed that the issue of non-Jewish migrants was “one of the reasons why I pushed the Nationality Law forward”, stating that the law “creates a balance for the claims that there are unlimited rights”.

Shaked warned the High Court of Justice (HCJ) of interfering in the Basic Law, calling such action “foolish behaviour”.

Interference by the HCJ, Shaked said, “is dangerous”, adding: “In a democracy, the court is not part of [the process of writing] the constitution.”

She charged that if the HCJ looked into the nation-state law, this would undermine the state’s democratic foundations and the principle of the separation of powers.

Jewish settlers vandalise Palestinian cars in West Bank

Scores of Jewish settlers vandalised a dozen private vehicles in the Palestinian village of Karyout in the Israeli-occupied West Bank today, according to a local official.

“Settlers stormed the village, located south of Nablus, and slashed the tyres of several cars parked in the area before painting racist slogans on them,” Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian official in charge of settlement affairs, told Anadolu Agency.

Jewish settlers, he added, had recently stepped up their attacks on Palestinian villages, since the region’s farmers are currently busy harvesting their olive crops.

Olive production – from an estimated 27 million olive trees – represents a primary source of income for over 100,000 Palestinian families in the West Bank.

Israel’s Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon said yesterday that if Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is indicted over corruption allegations, he cannot remain in office, reported the Times of Israel.

Kahlon, who heads the Kulanu party, has previously said he would pull out of the coalition were Netanyahu to be indicted.

Netanyahu, meanwhile, has rebuffed rumours of an early election, saying he would be “happy” to see the current coalition government last until November 2019, when elections must take place.

About Netanyahu’s lies

The claims made by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as he stood at the UN podium regarding what he considered Iran’s violation of the nuclear agreement with the global super powers in 2015 are part of a series of claims that began after Netanyahu became prime minister in 2009. The claims have been ongoing and growing in frequency and fierceness, especially in light of the Iranian military concentration in Syria.

Every time Netanyahu comes to the United Nations General Assembly he carries an armful of documents, pictures and statements, to incite the international public opinion against Iran and its allies in the region. This time, Hezbollah was the focus of his evidence and claims, as he claimed there were precision rockets just a few kilometres from the Rafic Hariri International Airport, specifically under a stadium in the southern suburb of Beirut.

“Every day the job is to inflict collective punishment. We were told explicitly that we were waging psychological war, that we were there to intimidate them.

“In the middle of the night we raided families’ homes, chosen randomly, waking up frightened children. We violently broke up Palestinian protests. I arrested Palestinians every day to ‘dry them out’ – to teach them a lesson, to make them understand who is boss.”

Israeli Minister Demands Detained US Student Renounce BDS, Apologize

Still under detention in Israel after a failed attempt to visit, University of Florida student and US citizen Lara Alqasem’s tentative links to the BDS movement have made her a major target for Israel’s far-right government.

Strategic Affairs Minister Gilad Erdan suggested that Alqasem could be released, and that he might even “consider” allowing her to visit Israel, if by Wednesday morning she publicly renouncing BDS in general as illegitimate and apologizes for “what she did.”

Enrolled as a master’s student at Hebrew University of Jerusalem, what Alqasem did was be the president of a sparsely attended chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine, and one, according to Facebook, attend a rally of as many as 19 people calling to boycott an Israeli brand of hummus.

Over 100 academics and Jewish professionals signed a petition demanding that Israeli authorities release a Palestinian-American student they have been detaining for nearly a week and let her enter the country to complete a Master’s degree the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

Lara Alqasem, who had already been given a student visa and was accepted by Hebrew University, was detained upon arriving at Israel’s Ben Gurion Airport last Tuesday. She was ordered deported for her alleged past membership in a student organization that advocates the boycott of Israel.

Al Jazeera denies Qatari emir censored Israel lobby film

Al Jazeera last week denied that Qatar’s ruler, Emir Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, has censored its documentary, The Lobby – USA.

More than two years after filming began, the four-part documentary has never been aired. But details have leaked out, with The Electronic Intifada and the Grayzone Project releasing clips.

“The emir never contacted us, or anybody from his office, to tell us what to do, or not to do” about the film, Al Jazeera’s director general Mostefa Souag said, at a National Press Club luncheon in Washington on 2 October.

Al Jazeera in April denied the film had been censored, following a claim by the Zionist Organization of Ameri that it had persuaded the emir to cancel the film during a private audience in the capital Doha.

But Al Jazeera’s statement at the time pointedly failed to mention the emir.

Despite History of Israeli Espionage, Bill Would Force NASA Cooperation with Israel Space Agency

A bill that was passed by the U.S. Senate in early August and is currently under consideration by the House would mandate that the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) work closely with the Israel Space Agency (ISA) despite the fact that such cooperation in the past was used by Israel to steal U.S. state secrets. The provision is tucked within the bill titled the "United States-Israel Security Authorization Act of 2018," which would also provide Israel with $38 billion in U.S. military aid over a ten-year period, the largest military aid package in U.S. history. MintPress News previously reported that this massive aid package translates into approximately $23,000 every year for every Israeli family.

Fun at the United Nations and in Congress: Israel Wins the Comedy Competition

The same creative thinking that produced the bomb with its lit fuse had come up with a different kind of delayed action joke that Bibi knew would confuse his audience before being revealed for what it was, trumping Trump’s attempt at humor, so to speak.

Netanyahu produced a series of large photos taken near Tehran by Israeli intelligence showing a wall and a gate. He said it was an Iranian “secret atomic warehouse for storing massive amounts of equipment and material for Iran’s secret nuclear weapons program.”

The audience gasped, clearly impressed by Bibi’s unexpected rollout of a hitherto unknown top secret installation, but the joke came the next day when it was revealed that the complex inside the wall actually contained a number of businesses, including a scrap metal dealership and a carpet cleaning service.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Premier Netanyahu, a word, please; your current attempted fakeout of the UN reminds me of the following phrase: to do something over and over again, in much the same way, yet expecting a different outcome, is a classic definition of insanity.

How in the name of logic did you expect to get away with this, and be believed by Ambassadors at the UN?!?

Israel detains American student at airport for five days over her political views, with little attention from U.S. press

Israel’s detention at its international airport of Lara Alqasem, 22, an American student holding a visa to study at Hebrew University, has gone on five days today. Reports from the Israeli media are that Alqasem, whose father is Palestinian, will get a hearing of her appeal of the deportation order— “within days,” her lawyers hope.

This is plainly a battle between liberal forces inside Israel and the rightwing government. The Israeli government is denying visitors to Alqasem and is determined to deport her for pro-boycott views that Alqasem has sought to distance herself from.

The Times of Israel reports today:

The Tel Aviv District Court on Sunday was set to schedule a hearing for an appeal against the deportation of a US student of Palestinian descent, who was denied entry into the country last week over her alleged support of the movement to boycott Israel.

Alqasem is raising money by crowdsource in order to fight the deportation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

An American kid, with a visa to study at Hebrew University?!?

Does any one of US Corporate presstitutes or members of the Israeli Knesset understand, even vaguely, just how lousy the optics of this detention are here for the country of Israel?!?

And Israel sells itself as "the only democracy in the Middle East"?!?

Give this detainee a break, here! Show yourself, as a government to be magnanimous, even if you hate the way she thinks, if you can.

And we have a companion story, also from antiwar.com: and bless Hebrew University for having the "male attributes" to have done this!

In a rare move, Hebrew University asks to join the appear for a US student detained by Israel

Israeli fire wounds 11 Palestinians at Gaza protest

Gaza's Health Ministry says 11 Palestinians have been wounded by Israeli gunfire in a protest along the territory's land and sea boundary with Israel.

Monday's beach demonstration was part of a half-year-long protest campaign by Gaza's Hamas rulers.

Protesters on fishing boats fixed Palestinian flags on a fence that extends into the Mediterranean. On land, other protesters briefly breached the frontier under the cover of smoke from flaming tires.

Israeli soldiers responded with tear gas and live fire.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This fight will be ongoing, and I fear, will only lead to one outcome; the ultimate genocide of the Palestinian people.

And the Islamic countries surrounding Israel will do nothing, because they understand fully that, with the US government's aid, Israel has nuclear weapons, and won't hesitate to use them.

US Envoy: Trump Peace Plan Focuses Heavily on Israeli Security

In a Monday interview with the Times of Israel, US special envoy Jason Greenblatt reported that the upcoming peace plan from President Trump will “be heavily focused on Israeli security needs,” but will try to be “fair” to the Palestinians.

He wasn’t very clear what this would entail, but said that “each side will find things in this plan that they don’t like.” That’s already largely the case, with neither Israeli nor Palestinian officials expecting much out of the talks, and Palestinian officials in particular believe the US is too biased to be taken seriously.

What the US is actually planning to propose is not at all clear, though a focus on Israeli needs likely means that Israeli demands that the Palestinians never have any control over their own borders will be a part of the proposal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump is raising on a busted flush here, even before he spells out the specifics of the deal.

Home \Daily NewsIsrael arrests 500 Palestinians over Facebook posts

Israel arrested 500 Palestinians, including women, children and MPs, over their social media posts, the Palestine Center for Prisoners Studies reported.

The center’s spokesman Riyadh Al-Ashqar said that the Israeli authorities began arresting Palestinians for their social media posts since the start of the Jerusalem Intifada claiming such uploads incite terror against Israel.

Israel is using its recently formed “Cyber Unit” to monitor Palestinian social media posts, he said.

This unit, Al-Ashqar said, classifies any Facebook post that glorifies Palestinian martyrs, discloses Israeli crimes, and supports resistance as “incitement of terror”.

Israeli soldier gives 74-year-old Palestinian woman water then shoots her in the head

During the Israeli bombardment and shelling of the Gaza Strip last summer, an Israeli soldier approached a 74-year-old Palestinian woman Ghalya Abu-Rida to give her a sip of water. He gave her the water, took a photo with her and then he shot her in the head from a distance of one metre. He then watched as she bled to death, the Palestine Information Centre reported.

This is how Ahmad Qdeh, a journalist in Al-Aqsa TV, described the scene that he witnessed during the latest Israeli aggression. The spokesman of the Israeli army, Avichay Adraee, shared the photo of an Israeli soldier holding the water bottle and helping the old woman drink as an example of the “humanity” of the Israeli army towards the civilians in the Gaza Strip.

CHINESE SPY CHIP HOAX

Recently, a story about a special chip “the size of a grain of rice” that China allegedly put in countless electronic items to spy on everyone made the MSM rounds. Perhaps a few dolts in alt media also ran this. I have been thinking of a perfect way to debunk this crap. I have it.

If this spy chip is in your iPhone, then whoever produced the story will have it identified and be able to tell you the part designation and where it is on the circuit board. A part “the size of a grain of rice” is an ENORMOUS part for an iPhone; all parts except for the main processor are smaller than a grain of rice, and a grain of rice is much thicker than any circuit board in an iPhone, so it ought to be pretty easy to find. But you won’t find it because the story is a hoax.

AUSTRIA'S KURTZ TO NETANYAHU: I'M COMMITTED TO FIGHTING ANTISEMITISM

A meeting between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz in New York on Wednesday evening further confirmed the latter's commitment to battling all forms of antisemitism. The conversation took place at a reception hosted by Ronald Lauder, the president of the World Jewish Congress ... The chancellor briefed Netanyahu on the steps taken by the Austrian government and parliament to reflect their appreciation of the Jewish community, the memory of the Holocaust and the struggle against antisemitism, including the closure of the journal Die Aula, which is associated with the far-right Freedom Party of Austria. The chancellor said Austria is committed to fighting antisemitism, not only in its own country but throughout Europe ...

Netanyahu says army prepping for possible military campaign against Gaza 

The Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has reportedly informed his cabinet that the army is preparing for a possible military campaign against the blockaded Gaza Strip in case the situation was not improved, according to Israeli media.

“If the reality of civil distress in Gaza is diminished, that is desirable, but that is not certain to happen, and so we are preparing militarily — that is not an empty statement,” Netanyahu said.

For the past six months, Palestinians have been protesting on the border of Gaza as part of the “Great Return March” in which 190 Palestinians have been killed, 64 of whom were killed on the day the US moved its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

‘Trump will only accelerate the creation of a new political movement in Palestine’: Nidal al-Azza on the impact of US policy towards Palestine

Nidal al-Azza, 50, is a Palestinian activist and the director of a local organization that works with Palestinian residency and refugee rights. Al-Azza is a Palestinian refugee himself, and was born and raised in a refugee camp in the occupied West Bank, where he still lives. He has a Master’s degree in Human Rights Law from Columbia University in New York.

Like many other activists and community leaders in the West Bank, al-Azza has been dealing with the repercussions of the Trump administration’s foreign policy in the region, specifically the massive cuts to Palestinian aid and policy changes over the course of the past year.

Christian Zionists Target US Aid to Palestinian Authority

A few days ago, We Hold These Truths posted a podcast entitled “Christian Zionism is a War Based Religion,” which includes a discussion on the so-called “just war” theological doctrine often used by Christian leaders to justify their support for US wars.

I am referring, of course, to Christian leaders such as John Hagee, of Christians United for Israel, or CUFI.

Back in 2003, Hagee supported the US war in Iraq, and even later, after it became glaringly apparent there never had been any weapons of mass destruction and that Bush had lied about the war, he continued to be a vocal supporter of the US aggression.

“Christian Zionism is a war based, political religion wrapped around the notion that the modern state of Israel is a fulfillment of Biblical prophecy,” reads the podcast description put up by We Hold These Truths. You can go here to listen to the podcast. It’s a fairly interesting discussion.

“Adelson’s activities in buying politicians reflect what he believes, he reportedly having said that “there’s no such thing as a Palestinian.” Nor does his world view include much concern for the country that has sheltered him and made him wealthy. He served in the US Army in World War 2 and has said that he regrets having done so, as he would rather have worn an Israeli army uniform. He also expressed his desire that his son might become an Israeli Army sniper.”

Criticism Of Israeli Policy Is Not Anti-Semitic

I was provoked to write this discussion of what is and what isn’t anti-Semitism by an article in Ha’aretz on the “controversy” created by the awarding of the 2018 Nobel Prize in Chemistry to George P. Smith. According to the reporting, Smith is not only a brilliant scientist whose work has helped lead to the creation of new drugs that can treat cancer and a range of autoimmune diseases, he is also an outspoken supporter of Palestinian rights and a critic of Israeli policies.

The Ha’aretz piece notes that Smith has long been “a target of pro-Israel groups” and is listed on “the controversial Canary Mission website”—used by supporters of Israel to harass and silence critics.

ISRAEL SLASHES GAZA FISHING ZONE BY 33% IN RETALIATION FOR WEEKLY PROTESTS

The offshore area where Gazans are allowed to fish has been reduced by Tel Aviv to six nautical miles, in retaliation to the violence during weekly border protests, amid heightening tensions between Israelis and Palestinians.
Tightening Israel’s economic blockade of the Gaza Strip, Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman ordered the reduction of the Palestinian offshore fishing zone from nine nautical miles to six. The drastic measure was taken in response to the ongoing Great March of Return riots and to sea protests, in which Palestinian boats sail up to the maritime boundary between Israel and the coastal Palestinian enclave.

“The defense minister’s decision was made following the violent rioting over the weekend near the [security] fence and attempts to harm IDF forces and launch confrontational flotillas at the maritime border,” said a statement issued by the ministry.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to politely remind Israel's Prime Minister, the IDF, Shin Bet, and the Knesset, that such mass punishment is considered a war crime, under the Geneva Conventions.

And I would like to also politely remind these individuals and groups within Israel, that if the decision is made to turn Gaza into your own personal shooting gallery as punishment for the Palestinians' expressing their desire for The Right of Return (enshrined by Israel's first Government), the world collectively may be thoroughly convinced that BDS is the only way to stop Israel's bad behaviour, is by swiftly paralyzing Israel's economy.

Do please consider that, because the hour of such a decision may not be terribly far away.

States can’t punish businesses for boycotting Israel, federal judge in Arizona says

Mikkel Jordahl, alawyer in Sedona, Ariz., can now choose to buy a different brand of printers.

No longer must he stick with Hewlett-Packard technology for fear of losing his contract with the state. For 12 years, he has provided legal advice to inmates in the Coconino County Detention Facility.

In his personal life, he avoids companies he considers complicit in Israel’s occupation of the Palestinian territories. His aim had been to extend his boycott to his one-person law office — for instance, refusing to purchase from Hewlett-Packard because its information technology services are used at Israeli checkpoints in the West Bank.

Wife of Israeli prime minister Netanyahu goes on trial for fraud

Reuters reports Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s wife, Sara, appeared in court on Sunday for the first hearing in the fraud trial against her, in which she is alleged to have misused state funds in ordering catered meals.

According to the indictment filed in June, Sara Netanyahu, along with a government employee, fraudulently obtained from the state more than $100,000 for hundreds of meals supplied by restaurants, bypassing regulations that prohibit the practice if a cook is employed at home.

Netanyahu denies any wrongdoing.

She was charged in June with fraud and breach of trust and of aggravated fraudulent receipt of goods. If convicted, Sara Netanyahu could face up to five years in prison.

Looking tense as she walked into Sunday’s hearing, she made no comment to reporters and sat on a bench behind her lawyers. Israeli media reports said the session would deal with procedural matters.

An additional shipment of US F-35 stealth planes will be supplied to Israel under President Trump's order, in retaliation to Syria’s recent acquisition of Russian S-300 missile defense batteries, according to the Israeli news website Debka.
