Destruction of Jerusalem’s al-Aqsa mosque is Israeli groups’ ultimate goal

Over the last three days, Palestinians have come under fierce attack as they attempted with their bare hands, sticks and stones to deter and prevent repeated violent assaults by Israeli occupation forces into Jerusalem’s al-Aqsa mosque compound.

The violence comes as Israeli-backed groups bent on replacing the mosque with a Jewish temple are asserting their presence ever more aggressively.

UGLIER THAN SIN

Israeli “Defense” Minister Moshe Yaalon has admitted that his country’s domestic security apparatus knows the identities and whereabouts of the Jewish terrorists who a few weeks ago burned a Palestinian family to death at a village in the northern West Bank.

The still-unidentified terrorists set the Dawabsheh family home, at the village of Doma, south of the City of Nablus, on fire, burning to death three members of the Palestinian family, the father, Saad, aged 34, the mother Reham, aged 27, and their 18-month-old toddler Ali.

The fourth and last member of the family, a male child, is fighting for his life in hospital. His conditions have been described as stable.

According to the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, Yaalon said the Israeli security authorities were reluctant to arrest the suspected murderers in order to protect the identity of their sources.

HOW OBAMA CAN SAVE PALESTINE

President Obama promised that as soon as the Iran nuclear deal is closed he will refocus on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Given this shift of focus is now in sight, Obama should grant U.S. recognition of Palestine as an independent state, albeit a militarily occupied one. Such an elementary step is long overdue and may be the sole act that saves the two-state solution.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Netanyahu will refuse Obama, as punishment for not killing the Iran deal as ordered.

Israel’s Convoluted Legal System: “Administrative Detention” and Israel’s “Moral Imperative

snip: Moreover, this bill contradicts the very notion of law as such, which does not operate through brute force and terror but recognizes the equal worth and dignity of every individual who stands before the law. What the bill will do is make it much easier for the state to legally detain Palestinian suspects indefinitely without putting them on trial, adding yet another layer of moral decadence to the already bankrupt legal system.

That said, anyone who is familiar with Israel’s state of being from the day of its inception to the present cannot deny the fact that the country has legitimate national security concerns. But when national security becomes a political tool, Israel opens up itself to intense criticism and condemnation.

Hamas: Israeli escalation in al-Aqsa is “a declaration of war”

Israeli ongoing escalation in al-Aqsa Mosque is a “declaration of war,” a senior official from Hamas Movement said Tuesday, as Israeli occupation forces violently broke into Muslims’ holy al-Aqsa Mosque for the third day in a row and aggressively assaulted the peaceful Muslim sit-inners and worshipers.

ISIS is working on Mossad/CIA Plan to Create Greater Israel

Ken explains the concept of ‘The Greater Israel Project’ and the balkanization of surrounding countries as a means of destabilizing them. Balkanization is a geopolitical term that was originally used to describe the process of the fragmentation or division of a region or state into smaller regions or states that are often hostile or non-cooperative with one another. The head of the snake, the system of power, is headed by the financial system. The bankers rule the Earth through the private control of the issuance of money, debt-based money which we’re all supposed to pay with things like austerity measures, which allows them to provide THEMSELVES an INFINITE supply of money which means that they can buy anything and anyone so we see that the world governments are nothing but puppets of bankers who control their money supply. The bankers at the top of this pyramid are psychopaths.

Israeli raids into Al-Aqsa Mosque "a flagrant aggression" – Momani

Jordan Tuesday reiterated its condemnation of repeated Israeli attacks on worshippers at Jerusalem's Al Aqsa Mosque as a "flagrant aggression" against the Arab and Islamic nations and all believers, and said the provocations should stop immediately.

Minister of State for Media Affairs and Communications Mohammad Al Momani said Israeli crimes against Jerusalem and its Islamic and Christian holy sites are condemnable as per the international humanitarian law, and contradict religious teachings.

Such crimes, he said, would not bring security and stability to Israel, the occupying power.

They cleared the way for dozens of extremist settlers to enter the compound where they don’t belong. Throughout three days of violence, the world community remained silent - other than duplicitously calling on both sides to show restraint, doing nothing to intervene responsibly, letting Israel continue its longstanding reign of terror against defenseless Palestinian men, women and children.

Israel’s Deep Role in Syrian Refugee Crisis: Saga of Yarmouk

When Zionist Haganah militias carried out Operation Yiftach, on May 19 1948, the aim was to drive Palestinians in the northern Safad District which had declared its independence a mere five days earlier, outside the border of Israel.

The ethnic cleansing of Safad and its many villages was not unique to that area. In fact, it was the modus operandi of Zionist militias throughout Palestine. Soon after Israel’s independence, and the conquering of historic Palestine, the militias were joined together to form the Israeli armed forces.

Not all villages, however, were completely depopulated. Some residents in villages like Qaytiyya near the River Jordan, remained in their homes. The village, located between two tributaries of the Jordan — al-Hasbani and Dan rivers — hoped that normality would return to their once tranquil village once the war subsides.

Burned alive by Israelis

Incinerating humans whether in a gas chamber, military attack, by injecting petrol into the mouth or throwing a torch through a window all have one thing in common: burning is how racists manifest hate.

Five years ago at a stop during my book signing tour in San Diego, I met an adorable toddler named Farah.

She was being treated in the US for severe burns she received at the age of two.

Farah was one of thousands of civilians who were either injured or killed when Israel rained white phosphorus bombs on Gaza in 2008-2009.

The phosphorus that burned through Farah’s angelic flesh was American made and paid for by US taxpayers. Ironically, so was Farah’s treatment.

Last Sunday, mother of two Reham Dewabsha died from burn injuries.

Netanyahu to embarrass Obama in upcoming US visit: Analyst

“Ultimately Netanyahu is embarrassing Obama in the form of coming to speak to Congress against Obama’s Iran deal, in the form of his underhanded tactics towards Obama in trying to sway public opinion in the US and most importantly the opinion in the US Congress,” he maintained.

Obama has aggressively countered the Israeli premier’s arguments against the Iran nuclear agreement, characterizing opponents as warmongers.

Ties between the two leaders have also been strained because of Netanyahu’s opposition to the creation of a Palestinian state, a key element of US foreign policy regarding the conflict.

Israeli defense minister says government knows who was behind Duma attack, but won’t prosecute

Six weeks after settlers torched a Palestinian home in the West Bank hamlet of Duma killing three—Ali Dawabshe, 18-months, Sa’ad Dawabshe, 32, and Riham Dawabshe, 27—no one has been charged for the crime. Now, Israel’s defense minister says he knows who is behind the arson attack but is refusing to indict, because doing so could expose government intelligence sources.

Israel Desecrates Islam’s Third Holiest Site, Again

snip: No crime is too outrageous for Israel to commit. Genocidal aggression is longstanding policy. So are many forms of daily persecution - ruthless police state brutality against defenseless Palestinians.

On September 13, ahead of the two-day Jewish New Year Rosh Hashanah period, extremist settlers led by racist agriculture minister Uri Ariel, protected by soldiers and police, stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Occupied East Jerusalem - Islam’s third holiest site where they don’t belong, on the fabricated pretext of conducting a security operation.

Dozens of worshipers were attacked and forcibly removed, including children, Israeli forces using tear gas and stun grenades, as well as indiscriminately firing steel-coated rubber bullets against helpless victims.

Last week, defense minister Moshe Ya’alon illegitimately banned two Muslim groups responsible for protecting the Mosque.

As expected, the Tory Dirty Tricks Department were ready and waiting to put the boot in.

Champion of Palestinian rights wins leadership of UK Labour Party

In a stunning upset, Jeremy Corbyn has been elected to lead the UK Labour Party.

The veteran left-wing lawmaker and vocal supporter of Palestinian rights took almost 60 percent of the vote, trouncing the establishment candidates Yvette Cooper, Andy Burnham and Liz Kendall.

Former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair had warned that the party would face “annihilation” if Corbyn won.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The establishment gonna faw down go BOOM! Corbyn's victory, coupled with Trump's ascendancy here in the US, is signal that people around the world are fed up with the "Friends of Israel", fed up with war, fed up with lies, fed up with austerity, and mostly fed up with the money-junkies squeezing our balls in a vice for our last penny! .

Israeli forces storm Al-Aqsa compound, assault worshippers

Israeli police clashed with Palestinians at Jerusalem's flashpoint Al-Aqsa Mosque compound on Sunday just hours before the start of the Jewish New Year, police and witnesses said.

Tensions have been running high at the holy site in the wake of a decision by the Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon last week to outlaw two Muslim groups that seek to "protect" the compound against groups of Jewish worshipers.

Witnesses told Ma'an that Israeli forces stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound shortly after dawn prayer, firing rubber-coated steel bullets and stun grenades, leading to the injury of several worshipers.

The forces then surrounded worshipers inside Al-Aqsa Mosque itself and closed its doors with "chains and bars" before firing rubber-coated bullets inside the mosque, witnesses said.

"Psychopaths Are Running The World" Former US Marine Blows Whistle On Syrian False Flag, Exposes Real Agenda

“We have tortured and killed and maimed and raped around this planet; who in their right mind would consider the United States or the West in general to be in any position to punish anybody?” the veteran begins angrily, going on to outline the evidence for Syria being a false flag attack (Note: leaked emails showing how Assad was framed by the USA are detailed in this cached Daily Mail report from January 2013, which was published online briefly before being removed).

He rightly points out that the USA dropped more bombs in Vietnam than during the whole of WW2 combined, that it regularly arms terrorists (but the mainstream press refer to them as ‘freedom fighters’ when it suits them) and the former marine also points out how the so-called ‘War on Terror’ is nothing more than a well-planned strategy to be in a “perpetual state of war to destabilize the region for the Greater Israel plan.”

I am certain that Palestine will recognize the Jewish State ... exactly one second after Israel recognizes the Palestinian State! If Israel would only give to others what it demands for itself, all this violence and bloodshed could have been avoided.

Israel re-arrests nuclear whistle-blower over TV interview

The Israeli regime has once again detained nuclear whistle-blower Mordechai Vanunu, claiming that he violated the terms of his release from prison by taking part in a recent interview with a local TV station.

The Thursday development came as the Israeli Channel 2 television broadcaster, which aired the interview with Vanunu on September 4, is battling with the regime’s police who demand the "full, unedited footage of the interview," Israeli media say.

The channel refuses to hand over the material, citing the journalistic principle of protecting sources.

In the lengthy interview on Israeli TV on Friday, Vanunu reportedly explained how he once exposed the existence of Israel’s nuclear arsenal and elaborated on a potential disaster which could emanate from Israel’s notorious Dimona facility.

Israel hiding killers who burned Palestinian family alive, minister reveals

Israel’s conduct turned out to be depressingly predictable.

Haaretz reports today that, according to Israel’s defense minister Moshe Yaalon, “Israel’s defense establishment knows who is responsible for the arson attack that killed three members of a Palestinian family two months ago, but has chosen to prevent legal recourse in order to protect the identity of their sources.”

Yaalon reportedly told a closed meeting of activists from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud Party that three Jewish suspects were put under administrative detention following the attack.

Witnesses had seen the attackers flee to the nearby Israeli settlement of Maaleh Efraim after the Dawabsha home was set on fire.

WEST BANK HOLOCAUST

Reham Dawabsheh, 27, has finally succumbed to the critical wounds she sustained when Jewish settlers torched her home at the village of Duma south of Nablus in the West Bank about five weeks ago.

Initially, her toddler, 18-month- old Ali, was burned to death. Two weeks ago, her husband Saad died of injuries sustained in the same incident. Reham, a school teacher, was laid to rest next to her husband and child at her home village Monday 7/9/2015.

Now, her only remaining child is fighting for his life. His overall conditions have been described as “stable and improving.”

The nefarious crime was carried out by ostensibly Messianic Jewish settlers seeking to establish a pure Talmudic Jewish state, which the terrorists believe would expedite and accelerate the appearance of the Redeemer or Jewish Messiah who would usher the age of salvation for Jews and enable them to build a worldwide empire.

Shooting Children Becomes Israeli Policy

Netanyahu’s most recent foray grew out of a late August incident on the West Bank. A series of photographs plus video footage from a protest in the Palestinian village of Nabi Saleh appeared in the media. They showed a masked IDF soldier trying to arrest a young boy accused of throwing stones, followed by scenes of his mother and teenage sister trying to rescue him. The pictures and video reveal a crying and struggling 11 year old Mohammed Tamimi, with his broken arm in a cast, being held in a headlock and sat upon by the soldier, armed with an assault rifle. The boy’s mother then intervened, pulling on the mask while Mohammed’s 15 year old sister joined in to bite the soldier’s wrist, compelling him to free the boy. The soldier released him, backed off and then threw a grenade at the family.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, selective, military genocide against Palestinian children becomes a hardened Israeli policy, courtesy of Netanyahu.

In the great classical tales of Greece, one of the most ugly personality traits in many of the very flawed heroes was hubris, an overweening pride, which causes these people to not see things as they really are.

And ultimately, it will most likely be his hubris which will bring Netanyahu down, geopolitically; he will be judged by history as a thoroughly failed leader who could have made much better choices for the Israeli people in terms of peace and prosperity for the country than he has done to date.

Israel forces make incursion into Gaza Strip, level fields

Israeli military vehicles have carried out a cross-border military incursion into the southern part of the besieged Gaza Strip.

According to witnesses and local residents, four bulldozers escorted by military vehicles on Tuesday morning crossed into the Palestinian side of the border fence in the east of the city of Khan Younis and leveled fields belonging to local Palestinians, Ma'an News Agency reported.

Sources say Israeli soldiers used smoke grenades to conceal the movement of bulldozers. Palestinian farmers also left their fields, fearing possible shooting by the Israeli soldiers.

The Israeli regime repeatedly launches cross-border raids into Gaza on security pretexts, often razing land near the border in the so-called buffer zone it maintains on the Gaza side of the border.

Israeli forces have also frequently opened fire on Palestinians who approach the so-called buffer zone.

MEET THE DAWABSHA FAMILY OF PALESTINE

Thousands of Palestinians took part in the funeral of Riham Dawabsha, 27, who died overnight Sunday after succumbing to wounds she sustained more than a month ago in an arson attack on July 31 that killed her husband and 18-month-old son.

The funeral march set off from the entrance of Duma village in southern Nablus and proceeded to the village’s cemetery.

Dawabsha was given a military funeral as members of the Palestinian Authority security forces headed the march.

The 27-year-old mother of two was buried in the village’s cemetery, next to her husband and son who were laid to rest last month.

Dawabsha died hours after her birthday, on Sept. 6, while her husband died on Aug. 8, the couple’s wedding anniversary.

Palestinian Mother Dies fromIsraeli Settler Inflicted Immolation

On July 31, racist Israeli settlers set the Dawabsha family home ablaze, burning 18-month-old old Ali Saad Dawabsha to death, inflicting third-degree burns (the most severe kind) on three other family members - his mother, father and brother Ahmed aged four.

The incident reflects a culture of virtual impunity. Extremist settlers rampage unaccountably against Palestinians, committing near-daily acts of violence and vandalism.

The Dawabsha family lost their home. Baby Ali was burned alive in the blaze, his charred body incinerated beyond recognition.

His father Saad perished days later. He couldn’t recover from third-degree burns covering 80% of his body.

On September 5, Maan News reported his wife, Riham, deteriorated seriously, “leaving her in critical condition, her family said…”

Jewish High Court Demands Pope Francis Apologise for Recognising Palestinian State

A self-declared Israeli Sanhedrin, a religious High Court composed of 71 sages, has demanded that Pope Francis apologise for recognising a separate Palestinian state or face trial next month.

A member of the Palestinian Al-Fatah movement revolutionary council, Demetri Deliani, said the Jewish court has sent a letter to Pope Francis demanding he rescind or face trial on 20 September, and that he will be judged in absentia if he chooses to ignore the summons.

The Vatican officially recognised the State of Palestine in February 2013.

In June, the Holy See switched its diplomatic relations from the Palestinian Liberation Organisation to “the state of Palestine” in a treaty that constitutes the first legal document negotiated between the Holy See and the Palestinian state.

Sanctioned Terrorism

…we must fight sanctioned terrorism today.

What is left unmentioned and unrecognized in our collective psyche is the kind of terrorism that has been deliberately obfuscated: sanctioned terrorism or terrorism with a license – sanctions.

Shamelessly, even after sanctioned terrorism took the life of one million Iraqis, the UNSC licensed terrorism against Iran – sanctions, without any remorse for the lost lives of 1 million Iraqi victims of sanctioned terrorism and untold numbers or other victims across the globe.

The overall failure to identify and deliberately obfuscate this act of terrorism has enabled this premeditated act of terrorism to continue with impunity.The success of this deception is owed to controlling the narrative with complicity from the media.This has been so effective that even the victims of sanctioned terrorism fail to grasp that they are being subjected to terrorism.

Terrorism is foundation of Israeli regime: Rouhani

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani says the Israeli regime has been founded and continues to survive on terrorism.

President Rouhani made the remark at an international conference commemorating the Iranian victims of terrorism in the capital, Tehran, on Monday.

“This regime (Tel Aviv) began its work on the basis of intimidation, terror and occupation, and is continuing [to move on] the same anti-human path today,” Rouhani said.

In his keynote speech, the president also referred to Takfiri groups, including Daesh, Taliban and Boko Haram, as other sources of terrorism in the region.

Blowback on a NATO beach – Pepe Escobar

We’ve had it coming from the beginning.

And when it came, virtually the whole planet reacted with stunned silence. Sometimes it takes just a photograph to put a noxiously complex version of hell in perspective.

We’ve had it coming when the “we’re the new OPEC” Bush administration invaded, occupied and destroyed Iraq – creating the set-up for the establishment of Al-Qaeda in Iraq.

We’ve had it coming when the Petraeus surge bribed Sunnis to half-heartedly fight Al-Qaeda in Iraq – which then took its time to reorganize in the heart of the desert, change its name to Islamic State and plot a comeback.

We’ve had it coming when NATO, enthusiastically “led” by London and Paris, and allied with hardcore Salafi-jihadis, set out to duly “liberate” Libya into a failed state run by militias.

Giving provision necessary to pour massive millions of dollars in their campaign to dismiss the global efforts of the Iranian P+5 nuclear agreement.

Obama Defeats Netanyahu In Iran Accord Battle

Benjamin Netanyahu’s AIPAC-controlled U.S. minions lost their battle to destroy President Obama’s nuclear accord with Iran and the P1-5 world powers.

A final, crucial vote was announced when Senator Barbara Mikulski (D-Md) became the 34th Democratic Senator to support the carefully constructed firewall needed to sustain a Barack Obama veto.

One day later, Senator Cory A. Booker (D-NJ) padded Obama’s veto-proof party vote with his support of the accord. With Mikulski and Booker on board, Obama now has 35 Senators who will vote to defeat a Republican-backed resolution of disapproval.

New Report Says Gaza Could Be Uninhabitable Within 5 Years

By Michaela Whitton

As if mass unemployment, poverty, and a blockade that pens almost two million people into 160 square kilometer open prison weren’t bad enough, a U.N. report has said that Gaza could become uninhabitable by 2020.

Surrounded by Egypt to the south, Israel to the north and east, and Israeli gunships to the West (that regularly open fire on Gaza fisherman), 1.8 million Palestinians live in the restricted enclave — a number predicted to rise to 2.1 million by 2020.

According to the report, Israel’s three military operations in the last six years and the eight-year economic blockade have ravaged Gaza’s infrastructure, shattered its production base, and prevented meaningful reconstruction and economic recovery...

Western Supported Israeli State Terror

I guess the evidence-less rockets that damage nothing was getting old.

snip: Again pre-dawn on Thursday. Israeli warplanes terror bombed a Hamas al-Qassam Brigades Falasteen military site. Fabricated pretexts are used to justify IDF aggression - this time claiming gunshots from Gaza.

True or false doesn’t matter. Israel uses any incident to justify attacking Hamas - launching air and ground attacks, using heavy weapons, often killing and/or wounding civilians.

Gunshots in US communities occur often. Would Washington be justified in launching air or ground attacks in response? In Israel, it’s standard procedure - unaccountable bandit acts.

Syrian Suffering vs. Palestinian Suffering

The tragic photo of the body of a three-year old Syrian boy, Aylan Kurdi, drowned in the sea when attempting to flee that war-torn nation with his family, is seared on the minds of all but the most heartless of people who have seen it. Still wearing his little sneakers, he would seem to be only asleep, where he not lying alone, face down, on a Turkish beach, having been washed ashore by the tide. The unspeakable horrors that his desperate family fled, at great and, as it turned out, tragic risk, can only be imagined by anyone who has not experienced them. The entire world is crying out for a resolution to the problems that led to the death of this child, his brother, mother and countless other desperate refugees.

‘West creates refugees by destroying Islamic nations’ – Chechen leader

The head of Russia’s Chechen Republic claims the current asylum seeker crisis in European countries originated in the aggressive policies of the United States and the EU. He also called upon all Muslim nations to jointly fight the root of the problem.

“If today no one rises against the inhumane policies of the Western countries, tomorrow the disaster may come to any Muslim country. I call upon you to urgently discuss this problem, to develop a unified position and to save the lives of thousands of people.
Europe and the USA are not simply refusing to act, they instigate the tragedies of millions of people by destroying the economy of Islamic countries and starting wars in Muslim regions of the world, he added.

Gaza could soon become uninhabitable, UN report predicts

A hard-hitting new United Nations report says Gaza could become uninhabitable in less than five years if current economic and population trends continue.

It cites what it describes as the “de-development” of the blockaded coastal strip, which is at present home to some 1.8 million Palestinians but is expected to grow to 2.1 million by 2020.

“De-development” describes a process where development is not only hindered but actually reversed. Findings by the UN conference on trade and development point to the eight-year economic blockade of Gaza as well as the three wars between Israel and the Palestinians over the past six years.

How EU officials shrugged off aid to Israeli settlements

During the past few years, the European Commission, the EU’s executive bureaucracy, has been questioned by many Palestine solidarity activists on why it approved scientific research grants to the cosmetics-maker Ahava.

The EU hierarchy was — rightly — made to feel awkward by these questions. Ahava’s main factory is located in a Jewish-only settlement in the West Bank; like all other nations in the world, EU governments regard Israel’s construction and expansion of those colonies as contrary to international law.
