Israeli Forces Expel Jordan Valley Families

Israeli occupation forces expelled, on Tuesday morning, five Palestinian families from their homes in Khirbet Hamsa al-Fawqa, in the northern Jordan Valley.

Activist A’ref Draghmah said that soldiers expelled the families, including women and children, to the outdoors, under the pretext of conducting military exercises.

Israeli forces have expelled the aforementioned families three times in the last two months, under the same pretext.

JCPOA is 'Zero-Sum Game' for Israel, While EU Looking for a 'Formula' - Scholar

Radio Sputnik discussed Benjamin Netanyahu's European tour and current tensions in the Middle East with Dr. Gil Murciano, Middle East expert at the German Institute for International and Security Affairs think tank in Berlin.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's main goal at the upcoming negotiations with European leaders is to present Iran as a threat to regional stability, political analyst Gil Murciano told Radio Sputnik.

"According to Netanyahu, he is going to speak about two topics: the first one is Iran and the second one is Iran. And while it seems that this repetition is made for emphasis, we actually speak about different issues," Murciano said.

"First of all, the future of the JCPOA, the nuclear deal with Iran following the withdrawal of the US. And the second one is the Iranian build-up in Syria and the Israeli-Iranian conflict in Syria," the scholar explained.

Religious extremism is at the heart of US support for Israel

Hagee, then, is a modern-day snake oil salesman. As such, he is an appropriate fit for the state of Israel.

Hagee’s CUFI plays an important role in rallying Evangelical support for Israel in the US. It also claims that one of its aims is to fight anti-Semitism across the world.

'It'll Be Problematic for Israel, US if Europe Adheres to Iran Accord' - Analyst

Israel's intelligence minister has called for a military coalition against Iran if the Islamic Republic were to defy world powers by enriching military-grade uranium. Yisrael Katz's remarks came as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu began visiting European leaders to discuss Tehran’s regional involvement and nuclear program.

Iran earlier said it plans to increase its capacity for uranium enrichment but it would remain within the rules of the deal.

Israel Is Helping Saudi Arabia Develop Nuclear Weapons

Israel has been a nuclear power for decades, though its nuclear arsenal is undeclared and the country has refused to sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Estimates of its arsenal vary, with most suggesting that Israel possesses from 100 to 200 nuclear weapons. Israel was aided in the development of its nuclear program by Western powers, particularly France. Much of the Western “help” Israel received, however, was the result of covert thefts of nuclear material from countries such as the United States and Belgium.

While Dor-On, speaking to news outlet Arabi21, did not elaborate on the details of the information being exchanged, he stated that the sharing of this information was likely to be just the beginning of Israeli involvement in a future Saudi nuclear weapons program, which would likely see Israel “take the initiative to develop Saudi Arabia’s effort to acquire nuclear weapons” as a result of “the growing Saudi-Israeli relations.”

The Colonization of Palestine: Rethinking the Term ‘Israeli Occupation’

June 5, 2018 marks the 51st anniversary of the Israeli Occupation of East Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza.

But, unlike the massive popular mobilization that preceded the anniversary of the Nakba – the catastrophic destruction of Palestine in 1948 – on May 15, the anniversary of the Occupation is hardly generating equal mobilization.

The unsurprising death of the ‘peace process’ and the inevitable demise of the ‘two-state solution’ has shifted the focus from ending the Occupation per se, to the larger and more encompassing problem of Israel’s colonialism throughout Palestine.

Israeli Army Claims Slain Gaza Medic Wasn’t Shot Deliberately

While the investigation into the killing of 21-year-old Palestinian nurse Razan Najjar by Israeli troops last week continues, the military has already offered a brief preliminary statement Tuesday, saying that no shots were “deliberately or directly aimed towards her.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

BULL BISCUITS!

Razan Najjar was wearing clothes that clearly identified her as medical personnel. Whoever pulled that trigger had to know they were shooting a medic ... unless the Israelis are just firing blindly into the crowd.

Israeli Minister Urges Assassination of Gaza Fire Kite Flyers

Israeli Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan is calling on the Israeli military to start treating the Palestinian fliers of fire kites as terrorists, saying they should be assassinated by Israeli snipers.

As tensions ratcheted up on the Gaza border recently, Gazans have begun flying kites that have flammable materials attached, trying to set fire to farms in the southern part of Israel, where a dry winter has left a lot of places vulnerable.

Israel’\s government has estimated the fires have caused $2.5 million in damage. An Israeli general says he’s recruited civilian drone operators in southern Israel as “reservists” and told them to fly their drones into the kites to try to down them.

May vows she WON'T ditch Iran nuclear deal as she meets Netanyahu in Downing Street after Israeli PM claimed Tehran tried to build a bomb

Israel has been ramping up the pressure for the agreement - which eased sanctions in return for Iran dropping its bid to develop nuclear weapons - to be ditched altogether after Donald Trump pulled out.

But as she sat down with Mr Netanyahu in No10 this afternoon, Mrs May said: 'Along with France and Germany the UK continues to believe that is the best route to preventing Iran from getting a nuclear weapon.

'We will remain committed to it as long as Iran meets its obligations.

Israel: Shooting of female Palestinian paramedic was unintentional

The White House says responsibility for dozens of deaths in Gaza coinciding with the opening of the new U.S. Embassy in contested Jerusalem "rests squarely with Hamas."
Note: That's it! the Hamas made the Jewish Nation of Israel put snipers with scopes on the rifles shoot and kill Palestinians. And before Hamas....well it was the Nazis that made them do it. holocau$t you know.

Palestinians say Israeli troops shoot dead stone-thrower

The Palestinian health ministry says Israeli troops have shot dead a 21 year-old stone-thrower in the West Bank. The Health Ministry says Izzideen Tamimi was shot dead Wednesday during clashes with Israeli forces near Ramallah. The Israeli military had no immediate comment.
Note: Jewish death squads again.

WOW: John Fitzgerald, Republican Who Challenges The Israeli Lobby & The "Official Narrative" Of The Holocaust WINS GOP Congressional Primary In Calif(!!!)

"I find it interesting that simply pointing out the fact that Jews played a predominant role in the African Slave Trade; along with questioning Israel and challenging their control over U.S. foreign-policy, consequently gets me labeled an anti-Semite and NAZI by Former Republican Chairman, Ron Nehring. I will bet that he has NEVER taken the time to read the numerous and informative links I have provided on my website that substantiate my claims. Does Mr. Nehring find it interesting that the ONLY historical issue that lands people in prison– in eighteen countries and counting– is the holocaust? This is a fact! Why is this and why do so many people get imprisoned under Orwellian Hate-Speech laws, simply for challenging any aspect of it outside the “official narrative?”

Argentina cancels Israel World Cup friendly after Gaza violence

Argentina has cancelled a football World Cup warm-up match with Israel, apparently under pressure over Israel's treatment of Palestinians in Gaza.
Striker Gonzalo Higuain said they had "finally done the right thing".
But Israel's defence minister said it was "too bad" Argentina's footballers did not "withstand the pressure of the Israeli-hating inciters".
"We will not yield before a pack of anti-Semitic terrorist supporters," Avigdor Lieberman tweeted.
Note: That's it, as always anti-Antisemitism!

Trump's Ambassador To Israel Tells Journalists Who Report Truth About Gaza: ‘Keep Your Mouths Shut’

US Ambassador to Israel Tells Journalists Who Report Truth About Gaza: ‘Keep Your Mouths Shut’

David Friedman insisted that American news coverage is biased against Israel, but media analysts have concluded that the precise opposite is the case.
***
Friedman’s “anti-democratic demand” came during his speech at a media conference in Jerusalem on Monday, in which he complained without evidence that “nine out of ten articles that are written about the Gaza conflict are critical of Israel.”

“Just keep your mouths shut until you figure it out,” Friedman told reporters. “Because otherwise, all you’re doing is creating impressions that have no basis in fact. They fit a narrative. They fit an opinion. They fit an agenda. But it’s not reporting, because it’s not based on hard, factual analysis.”

In new memoir, ex-Obama aide bemoans a manipulative Netanyahu ‘not on the level’

In the book, titled “The World as It Is: A Memoir of the Obama White House,” Rhodes argues that Netanyahu assiduously blocked Obama’s efforts to resolve the conflict. That was in part due to Netanyahu’s continual approval to build settlement projects and his reluctance to embrace Obama’s vision of a two-state outcome.......

After Netanyahu’s Oval Office lecture to Obama in 2011, Rhodes writes that he was then “given a list of leading Jewish donors to call, to reassure them of Obama’s pro-Israel bona fides.”

FALSE FLAG ALERT: Did the Israeli-owned geothermal plant cause Kilauea’s volcanic eruption after triggering an earthquake swarm?

An analysis of earthquakes in the area around the Salton Sea Geothermal Field in southern California has found a strong correlation between seismic activity and operations for production of geothermal power, which involve pumping water into and out of an underground reservoir.

“We show that the earthquake rate in the Salton Sea tracks a combination of the volume of fluid removed from the ground for power generation and the volume of wastewater injected,” said Emily Brodsky, a geophysicist at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and lead author of the study, published online in Science on July 11.

US Ambassador Slams US, Israeli Media For Gaza Coverage

Massive death tolls from months of Israeli crackdowns in the Gaza Strip have been sparsely covered by the media, particularly in the US. But even where US media outlets have found fault with the killings, US Ambassador David Friedman is expressing anger, saying it’s “not reporting” to cover the killings critically.

Friedman says media coverage that wasn’t supportive of the deaths was “completely superficial,” and that Israeli military officials had assured him that they had to kill all of those Gazans to defend the nation of Israel.

A US Ambassador to Israel criticizing US media outlets is probably not going to amount to much, but Friedman also slammed Israeli newspaper Haaretz for its own coverage of the deaths, saying Haaretz never explored if there were “other alternatives” besides killing the Gazans.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

" Israeli military officials had assured him that they had to kill all of those Gazans to defend the nation of Israel."

Oh, really, Mr. Ambassador?!? Including the Palestinian medic, Razan al-Najjar who was only trying to get people to safety, and get them evacuated?!?

The IDF HAD to kill her, to defend the nation of Israel, right?!?

Sir, with the coverage of this IDF assassination having been very clear, and understanding that this woman was no threat, the optics of what you have said are completely horrific, and disingenuous in the extreme.

This statement you have made has absolutely broken the back of any vision of the US being able to be an "honest broker" in the Israeli/Palestinian hostilities, and will have severe, negative repercussions in the greater Middle East.

But then, in light of the reality that the US has outsourced its Middle Eastern foreign policy to Tel Aviv, this shouldn't really suprise us.

IDF on Murder of Razan al-Najjar: She Was Killed “in Accordance with Standard Operating Procedures.” (True Enough)

Thousands attend the funeral for Razan al-Najjar, the 21-year-old medic shot and killed near the Gaza border with Israel June 1. (Reuters)

Thousands of people gathered in Gaza on Saturday for the funeral of Razan al-Najjar, a 21-year-old Palestinian medic who witnesses say Israeli soldiers shot dead near the border fence on Friday.

Medical workers, dressed in white uniforms, marched in her funeral procession, holding Palestinian flags and photos of her face. Her father walked holding his daughter’s own medical vest, once white, now stained red with her blood.

More than 115 people have been killed since protests began on the border at the end of March, but Najjar is only the second woman to die. The first was a teenage protester.

Photos from the scene immediately after Najjar was shot show a group of men carrying the volunteer in her white uniform, her head tilted back and her gloved hand limp around their shoulders. Witnesses said she was shot in the chest.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

She was assassinated by the IDF, which is their standard operating procedure; killing innocent Gazans civilians, and killing the first responders who attempt to help them.

Netanyahu is in Europe as Trump's lobbyist-in-chief

Before taking off for Berlin on Monday morning, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was very clear what was on the agenda of his meetings with Angela Merkel, Emmanuel Macron and Theresa May. And no, it’s not the cultural festival marking 70 years of Israel-France relations.

Netanyahu is on his umpteenth round of talks with the European leaders to try to convince them to ditch the nuclear deal with Iran. But he knows there’s no chance of them doing so. He basically admitted that before taking off when he said, “It may not have a consensus right now, but over time I think such an understanding will be formed.”

Both Israeli and Western diplomats who have been involved in behind-the-scenes discussions over the future of the Iran deal concur with that assessment.

Norway gives “green light” to boycotts of Israel’s settlements

Municipalities which boycott Israel’s illegal settlements do not violate Norway’s international obligations, a foreign ministry official has insisted, dealing a blow to right-wing parties that tried to have two such municipal boycotts rescinded.

Audun Halvorsen, state secretary at the foreign ministry, said early May that a boycott of “goods and services produced in settlements does not contradict Norway’s international commitments.”

His comments came after three right-wing parties had appealed boycotts in Trondheim and Tromsø.

Three local right-wing opposition parties filed a complaint with the Tromsø county governor’s office, requesting a ruling on the resolution’s legality. In addition, the World Jewish Congress urged the Norwegian government to oppose Trondheim’s settlement boycott.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good on Norway!! Economics is a language Israeli businesses speak and understand, fluently.

Syria says Iran has no military presence or bases in the country, and that the Iranian military advisors are there to help Damascus fight terrorist groups. Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem said the presence of the Iranian advisors in Syria was legitimate and based on an invitation by the Syrian government. Muallem thanked Iran for helping his country in the ongoing war against the foreign-backed militant groups.

The Naksa: How Israel occupied the whole of Palestine in 1967

More than 50 years ago, the state of Israel shocked the world when it seized the remaining Palestinian territories of the West Bank, East Jerusalem, Gaza Strip, as well as the Syrian Golan Heights and the Egyptian Sinai Peninsula, in a matter of six days.

In a war with Egypt, Jordan and Syria, known as the 1967 War, or the June War, Israel delivered what came to be known as the "Naksa", meaning setback or defeat, to the armies of the neighbouring Arab countries, and to the Palestinians who lost all what remained of their homeland.

Israeli generals sued in Dutch court for killing Gaza family

A Palestinian-Dutch citizen is suing two senior Israeli military commanders for the bombing of his family’s home during Israel’s 2014 attack on the Gaza Strip.

On 20 July of that year, without warning, an Israeli airstrike destroyed the house in the al-Bureij refugee camp in central Gaza, killing six members of Ismail Ziada’s family and a seventh person who was visiting them.

Ziada, who lives in the Netherlands where he is married to a Dutch citizen, could not attend the funerals of his family members due to Israel’s blockade on Gaza.

He lost his mother, 70-year-old Muftia Ziada, three brothers, a sister-in-law and a 12-year-old nephew.

Ziada holds Benny Gantz and Amir Eshel, respectively the Israeli chief of staff and the chief of the air force at the time of the attack, responsible for the decision to drop the bomb.

Palestinian victim sues Dutch supplier of Israeli attack dogs

A Palestinian from the occupied West Bank is suing the Dutch company that supplied the dogs Israeli soldiers used to attack him when he was a child.

For more than 20 years, Four Winds K9, a company based near the city of Nijmegen, has annually provided the Israeli army with dozens of dogs trained to attack civilians.

The military dogs “are intentionally used by Israeli occupying forces to terrorize and bite Palestinian civilians, especially during protests and night house raids,” according to Shawan Jabarin, director of the human rights group Al-Haq.

This cruel tactic is reminiscent of how police in the United States and apartheid South Africa set attack dogs on Black citizens demanding their rights.

How to tell when defending Israel is actually racist

Many of the people who defend Israel are consciously racist (clearly), but others dehumanize Arabs and Muslims by reproducing unexamined assumptions about Israel’s moral or civilizational superiority. Anyway, I’m less concerned with intent than with consequences. Anti-Arab racism is normalized to the point of common sense, largely because defending Israel requires dehumanization of Palestinians, Lebanese, and Syrians (and often Muslims more generally).

Because we spend so much time debating when (or if) criticism of Israel is anti-Semitic, we rarely get around to assessing how pro-Israel narratives exhibit anti-Arab racism. It seems important to rectify this problem.

‘How do you expect the young to forget?’: a visit to Shatila refugee camp

The heels of my shoes hit the dirty alleyways of the camp and I am instantly confronted with the harsh smell of filth. There is the awareness that the stench of death once filled these parts. This is Shatila refugee camp. To most of the outside world, a reminder of a massacre that once happened. A gravesite, a ghetto, a hub for outlaws and criminals. To the inhabitants of this camp, perhaps it is a life sentence. Perhaps it is the dying hope of a return to a home that once was. The old will die and the young will forget. Wasn’t this the plan for those who were exiled from their homes in Palestine? The old are dying, along with their frustration and memories of Palestine. The young, how do you expect the young to forget? Isn’t every minute of every day in a refugee camp enough of a constant reminder?

Israel arrests 12 worshippers in Al-Aqsa Mosque

Israeli forces today detained 12 Palestinian worshippers from inside Al-Aqsa Mosque’s courtyards in East Jerusalem, according to a Palestinian official.

“Dozens of Israeli police officers stormed the compound and arrested 12 Palestinians while they were reading the Holy Quran in the mosque courtyards,” Firas Al-Dibs, a spokesman for the Jerusalem Islamic Waqf, told the Anadolu Agency.

No details were available why the 12 Palestinians were arrested.

Meanwhile, some 53 Jewish settlers forced their way into the site since morning, according to Al-Dibs.

Israel soldiers who shot Palestinian teen in the back to walk free

Two Israeli soldiers who shot and killed Palestinian teen Samir Awad will walk free after indictments against them were dropped.

The pair shot Samir Awad, a 16-year-old Palestinian, in the back on 15 January 2013. Samir and his friends had been playing near the Separation Barrier outside Budrus, north west of occupied Ramallah, when he became trapped in the fence. The two soldiers from Israel’s 71st Armoured Corps Battalion then appeared from their nearby hiding place and shot the teen as he tried to flee.

A subsequent inquiry undertaken by Israeli human rights organisation B’Tselem said that the soldiers in question had not been in any danger at the time of the incident. Since open-fire regulations permit soldiers to use live ammunition only in cases of real and immediate mortal danger, Samir was shot unlawfully.

Knesset blocks bill defining Israel as ‘country of all citizens’

A bill calling for Israel to be defined as a state of all its citizens was stopped before it reached the Knesset for discussion yesterday.

Submitted by three Joint List Members of the Knesset, the Basic Law: A Country of All Its Citizens stood contrary to efforts to define Israel as “the state of the Jewish people” thus denied equal rights to its non-Jewish citizens.

Haaretz reported Knesset legal adviser Eyal Yinon “said that the legislation seemed to be aimed at altering basic principles – for example, by essentially cancelling the Law of Return (which declares the right of every Jew to immigrate to Israel), and determining instead that receipt of Israeli citizenship will be based on a person’s familial affiliation to another citizen of the state.”

This is the first time proposed legislation has been thrown out before being discussed in the last two Knesset terms.

The health condition of a Palestinian detainee held in Israeli jails, Hassan Al Tamimi, aged 16, has seriously deteriorated on Sunday, due to medical negligence.

The Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS) said, in a statement, that the health condition of Al Tamimi is extremely bad, adding that Israeli occupation authorities are rejecting to hospitalize him, under the pretext of financial aspects.

PPS added that this move aims at blackmailing the family of the child and puts him at risk of losing life.

Syrians in Golan 'paradise' caught between occupation and war

Driving to the Syrian Golan Heights, just over two hours northeast of Tel Aviv, the change in scenery signals the entrance into territory occupied by Israel since 1967.

The temperature drops as roads twist into mountain ranges, and the green landscape is amplified by the cherry and apple fields the region is known for.

During the war, known by some as the “Six-Day War” and fought between 5 and 10 June 1967, about 130,000 Syrians from the Golan Heights fled further into Syria as 340 villages and farms were demolished by Israeli forces.

Each year on 5 June, Syrians mark their displacement from the Golan with Yom al-Naksa, Arabic for 'the Day of the Setback'. Palestinians observe the same anniversary, commemorating their forced expulsion from the West Bank, Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem.

Today, only one town and four villages remain: Majdal Shams, Buqatha, Masaada, Ein Qenyah and al-Gager, inhabited by approximately 25,000 locals.

IRAN BEGINS TO BUILD ADVANCED CENTRIFUGES

Iran has begun working on infrastructure for building advanced centrifuges at its Natanz facility, Ali Akbar Salehi, the director of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organisation said today.

Iran’s nuclear activities would remain within the framework of the 2015 nuclear agreement with world powers, Salehi said.

Salehi also said Iran had developed infrastructure to produce electricity at Natanz.

Last month, the US pulled out of what it referred to as the “defective” nuclear deal signed between the P5+1 states in 2015. The move has put the future of the deal at risk and left European leaders scrambling to ensure Iran complies with its terms and companies wondering if they should do business with Tehran as the US threatens to apply unilateral sanctions on the Islamic Republic.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF the IAEA, which is still inspecting Iran's facilities, and is comprised of a bunch of very bright people, tells the world that this work complies with the P5+1 deal framework, I would tend to believe them.

Of course, the US, Saudia Arabia and Israel will scream that Iran is getting ready to produce nuclear weapons, even if this move is simply for developing additional energy resources,and use it as their "justification" for an attack against Iran.

Were I the heads of these countries, however, I would seriously want to explore what the Russian response would be, before beginning any such attack; historically, Russia has promised to support Iran militarily against any foreign attacker, and as we have seen in Syria, Russia's military capabilies are very formidable, at this point in its history.

Israel’s Nazified “silent majority”

Sixty-two percent of Israelis are happy with the performance of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during last week’s tensions with Gaza, and 59% are satisfied with the functioning of Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman, according to a Migdam poll taken for Channel 2.

Twenty-eight percent were unsatisfied with the performance of Netanyahu and Liberman, and the rest of the respondents had no opinion.

The poll found that 41% are in favor of further steps to ease the plight of Gazans; 28% back capturing the Gaza Strip and toppling Hamas; 18% prefer the status quo; and 11% had no opinion.

Israel digs up centuriesold Palestinian graves in Jerusalem

Israeli authorities have resumed excavation work at the historic Bab Al-Rahma cemetery, just outside the eastern wall of Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, according to the Palestinian news agency Wafa.

Israel's Nature And Parks Authority (INPA) reportedly began digging up graves about three weeks ago in order to establish "a national park on parts of the cemetery's land," Wafa said.

The centuriesold cemetery has great religious significance and is the site of the graves of Ubada ibn as-Samit and Shadad ibn Aus, companions of the Prophet Muhammad.

Ex-spy Chief Said 'Fun Part' About Mossad Is That It's a Crime Organization. Netanyahu Is Not Amused

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed a report published last week that accused him of asking the former head of the Shin Bet security service to listen to the telephone conversations of then-IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz and then-Mossad chief Tamir Pardo.

"The Mossad is not a criminal organization. It is a splendid organization that does holy work in the fight against terrorism and other threats to the State of Israel, and we all salute it," Netanyahu said at the weekly cabinet meeting Sunday. The prime minister was responding to Pardo, who described the Mossad as "a crime organization with a license" and said "that's the fun part" of working there. Pardo was speaking in an interview with Uvda, the investigative TV show that aired the report Thursday.

ISRAEL IS NOW HELPING SAUDI ARABIA DEVELOP NUCLEAR WEAPONS

The Israeli government has begun selling the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia information on how to develop nuclear weapons, according to a senior official at the Israeli military organization iHLS (Israel’s Homeland Security). Ami Dor-on, a senior nuclear commentator at the organization — which is partially funded by U.S. weapons-giant Raytheon – came forward because of his concern over the emerging nuclear arms race in the region. The cooperation between the two countries in helping the Saudis to develop a nuclear weapons program is just the latest sign of their warming relationship, with Israel recently calling the Saudi crown prince “a partner of Israel.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Great, just what the world needs; another nuclear power in the Middle East, with a twitchy trigger finger, particularly as it continues to confront Iran, both economically, and ultimately militarily.

LAPID: NETANYAHU WIRETAPPING IS REMINISCENT OF WATERGATE

If reports are true that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered the wiretapping of his cabinet ministers, it would be tantamount to the Watergate scandal that rocked the United States, Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid told The Jerusalem Post at the party’s faction meeting Monday.

Channel 10 quoted a “senior security figure” Sunday saying that he was present in a meeting five years ago in which Netanyahu requested wiretapping phones of more than 100 IDF officers and senior cabinet ministers. Lapid, who was a minister at the time, said he did not know if he was wiretapped.

Does Israel have a ‘right to self-defence’ against Gaza?

On 1 June 2018, Razan al-Najjar—a 21 year-old paramedic—was shot dead by an Israeli sniper in Gaza while providing medical treatment to wounded protestors. She became the 119th Palestinian killed in Gaza since mass demonstrations against Israel’s siege began on 30 March. During the same period, Israeli forces shot more than 3,600 protestors with live ammunition, a figure which Israel’s preeminent human rights organisation B’Tselem has characterised as a ‘mindboggling number of casualties’. The onslaught has left Gaza’s strained healthcare system on the verge of collapse.

Standing up to the UN shows America’s greatness

t happened again last week. When the UN Security Council voted to condemn Israel for what happened along its border with Gaza — without even mentioning Hamas, let alone acknowledging the terror group’s responsibility for the violence — not a single nation joined the United States in opposing the motion. When UN Ambassador Nikki Haley then put forward a separate measure condemning Hamas, the rest of the council either voted no or abstained. That leaves Americans asking whether fears about having the rest of the world aligned against us are more important than pride in being willing to stand up and do the right thing, even if it means being alone.
Note: Always shifting the blame to Hamas. Age old trick of liars.

Israeli army says didn't deliberately kill Palestinian nurse in Gaza

The Israeli military said on Tuesday initial findings from an investigation into the killing of a Palestinian nurse during protests on the Gaza border showed that she was not shot deliberately.
Gaza health officials and witnesses said Israeli forces shot dead 21-year-old Razan al-Najar, a volunteer medic, as she ran toward the border fence, east of the south Gaza town of Khan Younis, in a bid to reach a casualty last Friday.

Knesset disqualifies bill seeking equal status for Jews and Arabs

The Israeli Knesset (parliament) disqualified a bill on Sunday that called for redefining Israel as a state for all its citizens, rejecting the argument that it must recognize the rights of its Arab minority citizens as equal to its Jewish majority.

The text of the bill stated its objective as "to anchor in constitutional law the principle of equal citizenship while recognizing the existence and rights of the two, Jewish and Arab, national groups living within the country".
Note: And there you have it folks Israel is NOT the greatest or even a democracy in the middle east.

“National security” cited as reason Al Jazeera nixed Israel lobby film

Al Jazeera’s investigative documentary into the US Israel lobby was censored by Qatar over “national security” fears, The Electronic Intifada has learned.

These include that broadcast of the film could add to pressure for the US to pull its massive Al Udeid air base out of the Gulf state, or make a Saudi military invasion more likely.

A source has confirmed that broadcast of The Lobby – USA was indefinitely delayed as “a matter of national security” for Qatar. The source has been briefed by a high-level individual in Doha.

One of the Israel lobby groups whose activities are revealed in the film has been mounting a campaign to convince the US to withdraw its military forces from Qatar – which leaders in the emirate would see as a major blow to their security.

Syria's Assad: Improving Air Defenses to Stop Israeli Strikes, Ready to Confront U.S. Troops

Syrian President Bashar Assad said in an interview on Thursday that the only way to stop Israeli air strikes is by improving the country's air defenses. "We are doing that," he said. In a televised interview to RT in Damascus, Assad denied Iranian troops are in Syria, saying there are only Iranian officers who are working with the Syrian army. Assad, echoing Russia from earlier in the week, said the United States must exit the war-torn country. "The Americans should leave, somehow they are going to leave," he said. Responding to U.S. President Donald Trump's description of him as "Animal Assad," the Syrian leader said: "What you say is what you are." Assad said he would recover areas of Syria held by the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), and that U.S. forces should learn the lesson of Iraq and leave the country.

War Criminal Netanyahu Instructed Military To Strike Iran With 2 Week Notice, In 2011

Back in 2011, Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu instructed the military to get ready to strike Iran with only a two-week preparation period, former Mossad chief Tamir Pardo revealed. Such a strike would have resulted in open war.

It’s the first time a former Israeli official gave an insight on how long such large-scale military operations would (and should) take IDF to prepare.

Too Much Bad News Can Make You Sick, Say Researchers

PHILADELPHIA (CNN) – With every news alert or breaking story, our world seems to be pushed further and further into crisis. It is taking a serious toll on our environment but also on our mental health.

The world has always been stressful, but experiencing acute events occurring thousands of miles away is a new and challenging phenomenon. On any given day, it feels like the world is falling apart.

How can we brace for disaster and find the strength to withstand it? How will we adapt to our greater exposure to trauma? And will our mental health be sacrificed in the process?

15 HAMAS TARGETS IN THE GAZA STRIP STRUCK BY ISRAELI AIR FORCE OVERNIGHT

The Israel Air Force attacked 15 Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip overnight Sunday following mortar fire against southern Israeli communities on Saturday evening, the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit announced.

The military said the strikes were a response to the earlier rocket fire as well as “terror incidents led and made possible by the Hamas terror organization over the course of the weekend” which included the throwing of grenades, improvised explosive devices, attempts to infiltrate into Israel by damaging the security fence and the burning of Israeli fields by incendiary kites.

With More Gaza Protests Planned, Don’t Believe the Mainstream Media’s Lies

Since the beginning of the Great March of Return on March 30, Israel has killed over 100 Palestinians and injured over 12,000. Only one Israeli, a soldier, has been injured in the context of the march.

Most mainstream western media coverage of Gaza’s march has systematically decontextualized the mass civilian protest, brushed off Israel’s weekly massacres as “clashes,” reified the boundary fence between Gaza and Israel a “border,” presented Palestinian protesters as “Hamas pawns” passively “dying for photo ops” and deployed other strategic falsehoods to dehumanize Palestinians fighting for their freedom. The net effect is the demonization of the march and the absolution of Israel of its murderous assault.

Israel Planned to Attack Iran and Start a War, Former Spy Chief Says

Israel planned to bomb Iran and initiate an all-out conflict in the Middle East, according to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's former head of intelligence, who said he believed the move may have been illegal.

Tamir Pardo, who served as head of Israeli spy agency Mossad from 2011 to 2016, told local investigative program Uvda in an interview set to air Thursday that Netanyahu instructed his military command in 2011 to prepare for a strike against longtime foe Iran, which Israel has accused of developing nuclear weapons and supporting militant groups abroad. Pardo said then-Israeli chief of staff Benny Gantz informed the prime minister that the armed forces would be ready within 15 days.

U.S. GAVE JERUSALEM TO ISRAEL, WILL SYRIA'S GOLAN HEIGHTS BE NEXT?

Israel has been pressuring the U.S. to recognize its self-proclaimed ownership of the Golan Heights, a southwestern Syrian territory seized by Israel during a 1967 conflict and later annexed without international recognition.

Israeli Intelligence Minister Israel Katz made the revelation in an interview with Reuters on Wednesday, saying such a follow-up to Washington's recognition of the disputed city of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel would likely come within the upcoming months. Katz said accepting Israeli control of the Golan Heights would target not only longtime foe Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, but also an even more powerful enemy: Iran.

Israel has targeted Iranian and pro-Iran positions in Syria for years and Katz said President Donald Trump's recent decision to move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and exit from the 2015 nuclear agreement meant it was "the perfect time" to escalate the administration's anti-Iran campaign.

‘Disappearing Palestine’ maps must spotlight Jaffa

The Jewish Agency (/Israeli government) had agreed that Jaffa would be part of the Palestinian state — or, rather, it agreed when within earshot of the United Nations, until after UNGA Resolution 181, the UN Partition plan that effectively created the Israeli state, was shoved through the UN by the United States.

Partition’s architects acknowledged that keeping Jaffa non-contiguous with the rest of Palestine created problems for the Palestinians; but alternatives that kept Jaffa contiguous created a parallel problem for the Zionists. Resolution 181 made Jaffa a Palestinian island, accessible to the rest of Palestine either by sea or through Israel.

Boycott of Tel Aviv LGBT Film Festival gains momentum with new cancellations

Four more filmmakers have joined a growing number of artists boycotting the Tel Aviv LGBT International Film Festival (TLVFest), in response to a Palestinian call.

Five artists had already cancelled their participation prior to the start of the festival, which runs between May 31 and June 9. With the latest cancellations, from two French directors and two from the Spanish state, a total of nine artists and filmmakers have boycotted the festival this year.

Despite the cancelations, TLVFest has refused to remove the filmmakers’ films from the festival’s schedule. In a statement to an Israeli daily, the festival director Yair Hochner said, “Whoever canceled, canceled. As far as we are concerned the festival will continue normally.”

Dr. Ashrawi: “U.S. Veto Absolute Proof Of Moral Corruption”

On Saturday, member of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), Dr. Hanan Ashrawi, stated that the U.S. Veto against a resolution demanding international protection to the Palestinian people, is an absolute proof of moral corruption of the U.S. administration, providing impunity to the ongoing Israeli crimes against the unarmed Palestinian population.

“The United States, represented by the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, have proven their corrupt and blindfolded support to Israel, so that they can ensure Israel’s crimes and violations against an unarmed civilian population remain unpunished, and continue with impunity.

US isolated at UN, vetoes popular resolution and finds no backers for anti-Hamas bill

The United States vetoed on Friday a Kuwaiti-drafted UN Security Council resolution that condemned Israel’s use of force against Palestinian civilians, underlining Washington’s differences with friends and foes alike over the Israeli-Palestinian issue.

Later, a second, US-drafted resolution that blamed Hamas for the violence and upheld Israel’s right to defend itself failed to attract any other country’s support when it was put to vote in the 15-member council.

Blasting the council majority, US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said the two votes showed it was willing to blame Israel and unwilling to blame Hamas, the group that dominates Gaza.

“The terrorist group Hamas bears primary responsibility for the awful living conditions in Gaza,” Nikki Haley, US ambassador to the United Nations, said ahead of the vote.

“It is now completely clear that the UN is hopelessly biased against Israel,” she said in a statement.

Palestinians scale Separation Wall to reach Jerusalem

Following the tightening of Israel’s security measures and military barriers between the West Bank and Jerusalem and banning of all male worshippers under the age of forty, dozens of Palestinian youths scaled the separation wall with wooden ladders to reach Al Aqsa Mosque.

Very often, the young people who scale the wall or pass through openings, are often subjected to assaults by Israeli soldiers. Many fall in the process and suffer fractures and bruises. Undeterred, they take all the risks of injury and attacks in order to worship in Islam’s third holiest mosque. On Friday, the Qalandiya checkpoint between Ramallah and Jerusalem, like other checkpoints, witnessed a major crisis as thousands of male worshippers tried to reach Jerusalem.

Israeli snipers shot Obeid in both of his knees during rallies near the Gaza-Israel boundary on 30 March, ending a promising football career.

The video above also includes graphic footage – filmed by Obeid himself – of the moment he was shot by Israeli snipers.

NATO ‘security guarantees’ do not apply to partner Israel – Stoltenberg

NATO is not obliged to come to the rescue should a hypothetical war break out between Iran and Israel, Jens Stoltenberg has told Germany’s Der Spiegel, amid increased tensions between the bitter Middle East rivals.

“Israel is our partner, but not a member of NATO. The security guarantee of Article 5 does not apply to Israel,” Secretary General of North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Jens Stoltenberg told the magazine. Article 5 of NATO’s treaty stipulates that an attack against one ally is considered as an attack against all allies, but it does not apply to those designated only as “partners” of the alliance.

Lockheed Martin Opening Jerusalem Preschool for Israelis

“We could have set up a research institute on military aviation worldwide, but we went in the direction of [childhood] education because that’s what fires us up.” — Lockheed Martin

American aerospace contractor and maker of the F-35 stealth fighter jet, Lockheed Martin, is opening a “one of a kind” science-focused preschool in Jerusalem, with plans to serve Israeli children as young as five, according to a press release from Jerusalem’s municipality.

In May of this year, an Israeli military official openly bragged that “Israel was the first regime in the world to have used the U.S.-made F-35 stealth fighter jets in attack mode.” In December of 2016, Israel received the first two F-35s out of the 50 ordered from the United States.

Lockheed Martin invested over $1 billion in Israel between 2010 and 2017.

‘Why does Israel get impunity?’ UNSC call for protection of Palestinians vetoed by US

The United States has vetoed a Kuwaiti proposal to the United Nation Security Council (UNSC), which sought to offer “international protection” to Palestinian civilians in the wake of more than 120 of deaths in the Gaza strip.

In a speech to the council, US ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley criticized the proposal, describing it as a “grossly one-sided view”. Haley accused Hamas of inciting violent acts at the border between Gaza and Israel, purposefully infiltrating the ‘Great March of Return’ mass protests with its “terrorist fighters” and deliberately using civilians as human shields.

“The terrorist group Hamas bears primary responsibility for the awful living conditions in Gaza,” she said, before the UNSC vote.

Debunking 18 claims justifying this week’s Gaza massacre

This) is why I have decided to spare others the time, effort, and emotion, by writing out the most common claims I have seen regarding the events of the Great March of Return, followed by my responses. Those interested in fact-checking these common falsehoods, can find them in one place ... Claim 1: Israel acted with "restraint" towards protesters in Gaza ... First thing I can think of is, what border? Israel is the only country in the world with no defined borders, as they keep expanding into others' land. The line between Gaza and Israel is an armistice line from 1949 and 1967, not an internationally recognized border ... Claim 2: Jerusalem has been the capital of the Jewish people for 3,000 years ago. Moving the embassy is just a recognition of that reality ... Claim 3: This Great March of Return is totally organized by Hamas, a terrorist group.
Note: Everyday and in every way Israel is making more enemies!
