War criminal Benjamin Netanyahu wants to destroy human rights groups

Benjamin Netanyahu has said there is a need to tighten Israel‘s laws to prevent foreign governments from funding Israeli human rights organisations.

The Prime Minister said the current law requiring some non-profit groups to disclose the funding they receive from foreign governments was not strong enough, Haaretz reported.

FLASHBACK - Israel’s Stern Gang Mailed Letter Bomb to White House, President Truman

In 1947, the Yishuv was in turmoil. David Ben Gurion was pursuing his plan to declare a Jewish state. He was competing with Jewish extremists who had their own plans to free Palestine from the yoke of the British Empire. While Ben Gurion saw them as dangerous rivals, he also knew they were the bad cop to his good cop. Their mere existence and the havoc they wreaked on British colonial apparatus made Ben Gurion look moderate in comparsion. As such, they were exceedingly useful. The fact that Ben Gurion pardoned many of these terrorists for their crimes after the State was founded and prosecuted none of them indicates that he either colluded with them directly; or that they served his purposes so well, that he felt compelled to forgive them.

Settlement, Soft Coup, Realignment or Regional War: 4 Scenarios for Qatar Crisis

The Russian International Affairs Council, a powerful Moscow-based think tank, estimates that there are four scenarios for resolving the ongoing diplomatic conflict between Qatar and other Arab and Muslim states. Written by renowned Middle East observer Vitaly Naumkin, the report outlines what Russia and its regional allies should be prepared for.

Under the first scenario, the parties resolve their differences as a result of mediation by regional and world powers. Doha will be forced to make some concessions, but will not be asked to sacrifice its key foreign policy initiatives, including friendly relations with Iran, and links to the Muslim Brotherhood.
The second scenario sees mediation efforts fail, and pressure on Qatar escalate. Amid threats of even more severe struggle, the emirate's leadership is forced to resign, and is replaced in a soft change of power scenario.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One thing Naumkin does not take into consideration here, is the absolute blood lust shared by Israel; Saudi Arabia; and the US government for regime change in Tehran, and soon.

And the US government and military are very excellent at maintaining wars which should have been over months and years ago, save for US military involvement; Naumkin should ask Syria's Bashar Al-Assad about that.

Regime changing Qatar's government, and making it more antagonistic toward Iran, and using the 11,000 US troops serving there, together with Saudi troops, plus the US Navy's 5th Fleet, stationed in Bahrain, could mount up to a formidable fighting force against Iran.

But the big question which people in Riyadh; DC, and Tel Aviv need to be asking themselves is, if the US goes up against Iran militarily, what will Russia do?!?

In this case, I am not of the opinion that the Duma is just going to sit around and sing "Kumbyah", but will authorise immediate military action on Iran's side, should the US and Saudi Arabia attempt to invade Iran, supported by Israeli intelligence.

Israeli soldiers shoot from towers across fence into Gaza protest, killing Palestinian

Israeli soldiers kill one Palestinian, injure ten others, in Gaza

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WOW, those IDF members are SUCH "manly men"; they love assassinating unarmed Palestinians, peacefully protesting, who live literally caged in Gaza.

Must be like shooting fish in a barrel!

And they know that there will be absolutely no negative outcomes from their government from these assassinations and wounding of Palestinians.

This is just one component of Tel Aviv's multi-faceted "Final Solution" to the "Palestinian Problem."

Israel, Saudis, UAE Lobby Congress for Anti-Qatar Legislation

While Israel has been unable to directly join the Saudi-led move to “blockade” Qatar, having very limited contact with them in the first place, that hasn’t stopped them from throwing their substantial lobbying support behind a move already backed by Saudi and Emirati lobbyists to see the US Congress pass anti-Qatar legislation.

The HR 2712 bill, the Palestinian International Terrorism Support Prevention Act of 2017, faults Qatar for its support for the Hamas Movement, The bill’s sponsors in the House include a number of lawmakers who have received substantial donations from pro-Israel lobbyists, and donations from pro-Saudi lobbyists as well.

This is part of an ongoing allegation that Qatar’s charitable contributions are going to terrorist movements. Qatar denies that this is the case, saying that the government has been very successful in ensuring that the charities they support actually do charitable work, and don’t simply end up laundering the money to terrorist movements.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The threat of an imminent invasion into Qatar may have been stayed for now, thanks to the rapid action of both Turkey and Iran, pledging troops for Qatar.

However, that being said, look for Israel and the US government to conjure up some horrific false flag to blame on Iran (the real target, here), in the not too distant future, as a "justification" for invading it.

And Iran's "real crimes" here?!? Oh, let me count them for you:

1. Not having a private central bank, which loans money at interest, instead of for a fixed fee, which creates no compound interest.

2. Having a Constitutional Islamic Republic (Israel has no constitution whatsoever)

3. Doing a great job of educating their kids to become competitive on the world stage. In Iran, around 70% of science and engineering students are women

SAUDI ARABIA’S ATTACK ON QATAR UNRAVELS

A week into the crisis Saudi Arabia instigated when it broke diplomatic relations with Qatar and imposed a land and air blockade of the tiny Gulf state, it is becoming clear that it is failing to bring Qatar to heel.

Instead Qatar has successfully secured pledges of support from Turkey and Iran – the two military giants in this region – appears to have the tacit support of Kuwait, and is gaining diplomatic traction with Russia.

As for the US, though US President Trump has seemed to tilt to Saudi Arabia’s side in this quarrel, US Secretary of State Tillerson – who as a former oil executive must know this region well – seems intent on taking a more conciliatory line towards Qatar, calling for the blockade on Qatar to be lifted. I have no doubt it will be his counsels which in the US will eventually prevail.

IRAN CLAIMS PROOF OF 'DIRECT US SUPPORT" FOR ISIS DAYS AFTER CONGRESSMAN DANA ROHRABACHER FLOATS THE IDEA

Last Thursday, Congressman Dana Rohrabacher praised ISIS for coordinated terrorist attacks in Tehran which left 17 civilians dead - then suggested that the United States should support the terrorist organization in their endeavors to bring regime change to Iran, comparing the situation to working with Stalin's Russia to get Hitler.

Rohrabacher: Isn't it a good thing for us to have Untied States finally backing up Sunnis who will attack Hezbollah and the Shiite threat to us? Isn't that a good thing? And if so, maybe this is a Trump strategy of actually supporting one group against another considering that you have terrorist organizations.

Maybe it's a good idea to have radical Muslim terrorists fighting each other?

Dr. Asher: Having coordinated the economic warfare plan against the Islamic State, I would not condone an attack by the Islamic State. I would be determined to destroy them.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

General Izadi is absolutely correct in his assessment here.

And it is a damned shame that there is no Congressional equivalent to the 25th Amendment, when congress critters can no longer perform their jobs for their alleged constituents.

Because when Congressman Rohrabacher lauds an assassination attack against innocent Iranians, he is not doing his job for his constituents; all violence, as a way to resolve geopolitical issues, must be universally condemned, period, end of discussion.

And I really want to know; what is this alleged "Shiite threat" to which he alludes in these statements?!?

To the best of my knowledge, Iranians just want to be left alone, compete for business, fairly, in the world marketplace, and raise their children to be intellectually capable, and land decent, well-paying jobs.

When in the name of heaven did these desires become a "threat", except to Israel and Saudi Arabi, which consider Iran an alleged "existential threat", and wants regime change to happen here in the worst way, but insists that this only be brought about with American blood and American money, but not their own?!?

And does Congressman Rohrabacher remember which Middle Eastern country had an election recently?!? (Hint: it was NOT Saudi Arabia, sir!!)

SAUDI ARABIA BECOMES PRO-KURDISH AFTER TURKEY SIDES WITH QATAR

This could be the beginning of a new alignment that will elevate the Russian position in the region while diminishing the influence of the United States.

The new and seemingly prolonged row between Saudi Arabia and Qatar is having some curious and almost shocking knock-on effects.

The most interesting is that Syrian media has been reporting that attacks and even mobilisations from many Gulfi funded terrorists in Syria have declined.

Likewise, state-run Qatari broadcaster Al Jazeera has suddenly discovered the extent of Saudi war crimes in Yemen after ignoring the story until last week when Qatar’s exit from the Saudi coalition was formalised.

But by far the most strange development thus far is the newfound Saudi love for the cause of Kurdish nationalism.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These re-alignments remind me of the phrase, very common in the Middle East, that "The enemy of my enemy is my friend!"

Israel, Saudi, UAE team up in anti-Qatar lobbying move

US legislation threatening to sanction Qatar for its support of "Palestinian terror" was sponsored by 10 legislators who received more than $1m over the last 18 months from lobbyists and groups linked to Israel, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates.

The bill was introduced to the US House of Representatives on May 25, but the text wasn't available until Friday morning, hours after Saudi Arabia, UAE, and Egypt put 59 people and 12 institutions linked to Qatar on a "terror list".

The nations abruptly ended diplomatic relations with Qatar on Monday, accusing Doha of supporting "extremism" and siding with their regional rival Iran.

Israel calls for end of UN Palestinian refugee agency

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on Sunday for the dismantling of the UN agency that aids millions of Palestinian refugees, accusing it of anti-Israeli incitement and saying he had conveyed his message to the US ambassador to the United Nations.

Adnan Abu Hasna, a Gaza-based spokesman for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), said Netanyahu was pursuing a "fantasy".

The United States, Israel's main ally, was the biggest donor to UNRWA last year, pledging $368 million.

In a resignation letter issued last week, Vida Samiian, the longtime dean of Fresno State’s College of Arts and Humanities, said that a pressure campaign had targeted the search committee for the professorship, and that the school had balked at having four Arab-American finalists for the role. “I have decided to resign in objection to the unethical and discriminatory cancellation of the Edward Said Professorship,” Samiian wrote. “The administration carried out the vicious and discriminatory attacks launched by Israel advocacy groups against the search committee and the four finalists who were of Middle Eastern and Palestinian ethnicity.”

Israeli academics barred from expressing political opinion in class

As part of new ethical code promoted by Education Minister Bennett, lecturers would not be allowed to discuss political issues in class or publicly support academic boycotts; many lecturers come out against move.

Lecturers at academic institutions in Israel will be barred from expressing political opinions during class as part of a new ethical code.

The ethical code on political activity in academia was written by Prof. Asa Kasher —who also wrote the ethical code for the IDF—at the request of Education Minister Naftali Bennett.

Bennett, who also chairs the Council for Higher Education, plans on bringing the new ethical code for approval at the council so it could be implemented in all universities and colleges in Israel.

Israel bans Heinz Ketchup because it’s linked to liver, pancreas, immune system, and brain issues

The food industry only allows it to be sold as “tomato seasoning”, not “tomato ketchup”. Triggered by a series of tests conducted by an Israeli food company also selling ketchup. The tests revealed that, although Heinz boasts over 60% tomato as an ingredient, there was only 21% tomato concentrate in each bottle.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Credit where credit is due; so this is one time in my life that I can thank the Israeli government for noticing the disconnect between the advertising... and the reality in a food product.

Staying away from unnecessary sugars is key for health and longevity.

Jun 10 09:09

WHY HAS THE GCC AND EGYPT TURNED ON QATAR?

It is important to note which countries in the anti-Syria coalition are not part of the anti-Qatar coalition, specifically Turkey. The one thing Turkey and Qatar have in common besides funding and facilitating terrorists for the purpose of overthrowing the Syrian government, is support for the Muslim Brotherhood. After all, Turkey’s Erdogan has long supported the MB and has maintained close ties with them for years. Turkey is also currently debating the possibility of deploying Turkish troops to a base in Qatar.

So what we are seeing is, in part, an anti-Muslim Brotherhood coalition with the focus being placed on Qatar, the country which is seen as being perhaps the biggest patron of the organization.

The Iranian Element

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All of these elements, taken together, appear to be leading toward an ultimate Saudi proxy war against Iran, supported by the US and Israel, which will, almost inevitably, lead to a war against Russia, whose military and political class have, very publicly, stated that any attack on Iran will have Russia come to defend it, militarily.

And I very frankly think that we are looking at a question of "when", rather than "if".

The current regimes in DC, Tel Aviv, and Riyadh want to see the current regime in Tehran crushed, and by any means necessary, in order to install a western-centric puppet, as the US military and intelligence agencies did in 1953, and renew the curse of private central banking in this country.

President Rouhani, the Iranian Parliament, and the Iranian military, have every reason to be concerned about this demonisation of Qatar, and where it might be leading, geopolitically and militarily.

Is Qatar paying the price for its pro-Palestine stance?

Qatar's support for Palestinians seems to be one of the key causes of the Saudi-led blockade on Doha, amid increasing convergence between Riyadh and Abu Dhabi, and the administration of US President Donald Trump - the president most supportive of Israel in recent decades.

Trump faces growing Senate resistance on Saudi arms deal

As President Donald Trump aligns with Saudi Arabia amid a fresh dispute among Gulf nations, senators in both parties as soon as Thursday will try to block him from selling more than $500 million in offensive weapons to Riyadh.

The Senate bid to stop the Saudi arms sales — a small portion of what the White House claims will be a $110 billion package — is likely to fail. But the push to tie Trump's hands will probably find more support than a similar brushback pitch directed at President Barack Obama last year, as Democrats are far more united behind the proposal. Not only do Democrats have little reason to give Trump a win on any front, they're also stepping up their outcry over Saudi involvement in Yemen’s worsening civil war.

Remember the Liberty!

Most Americans have never heard of the Israeli, Ephraim “Eppie” Evron. A half century ago, in May of 1967, he was deputy chief of mission in the Israeli embassy in Washington and in that ostensible capacity had a meeting with President Lyndon Johnson in the Oval Office on May 26. From all indications, as we learn from Phillip Nelson in Remember the Liberty!: Almost Sunk by Treason on the High Seas, Evron was likely the real power in the embassy as the top Mossad official there. An even more interesting thing about Evron was that he was “one of the main conspirators” in the infamous Lavon Affair, a failed plot in 1954 by Israel to bomb U.S. and British facilities in Egypt and pin it on Arab extremists. (In 2005 the Israeli government outrageously honored nine of its agents involved in that episode.) Thanks to America’s Israel-first press, the appalling, treacherous Lavon Affair is no doubt as little known to Americans as is Eppie Evron.

Israel advances plans for 3,000 settler homes

Israel has advanced plans for more than 3,000 homes in West Bank settlements this week, despite US President Donald Trump’s call to hold back on such projects as he seeks ways to restart peace efforts.

Israel pushed forward with the plans as it also marked 50 years since the Six-Day War, fought from June 5-10, 1967 and which began its continuing occupation of the West Bank.

A total of 3,178 housing units were advanced in a number of different settlements, the Peace Now NGO that tracks settlement growth told AFP on Thursday.

Israel’s Liberty Attack Did Not Begin Or End In 1967

On June 8th, 1967, with cold-blooded mass murder as the objective, Israeli warplanes and warships made every effort to sink the USS Liberty, a mostly unarmed US intelligence vessel off the coast of Gaza, and to kill all 294 on board. Thanks only to the heroism of the Liberty crew and possibly a Soviet vessel’s offer of assistance (refused), the attack was called off before completion, although the attackers had plenty of reason to think that the sea would do the rest of the job for them.

In "Clear Escalation", Arab Countries Release List Of Terrorists Supported By Qatar

In what commentators have dubbed a "clear escalation", moments ago Arab states including Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt and Bahrain, have released a list that designates 59 individuals and 12 entities in Qatar as terrorist. The complete list of those named includes Qataris, Jordanians, Egyptians, Kuwaitis, Libyans.

The four countries released the names in “light of their commitment to fighting terrorism, drying up their sources of funding, combating extremist ideology and its dissemination and working together to eradicate it and immunize communities,” according to a statement made available to Al Arabiya.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, I am very concerned that, seeing how these countries are lining up to demonize Qatar (this includes the UAE; Saudi Arabia; Egypt, and Bahrain), will probably be working in concert (along with the US military) to attack it.

Right now, it doesn't feel that we are in an "if" moment, that it can, with negotiations, be remedied; it feels like we are in a "when" moment, and that moment could happen at any time.

On the Qatari side, we see Turkey and Iran siding with Qatar.

And while some of the people enumerated on this list may well be terrorists, Qatar is really getting punished for its dominance in natural gas, where it shares underground reservoirs with Iran in the North Field; the Saudis want this for themselves, as their oil reserves are beginning to tap out, which means that their economy may ultimately tank, unless they can control Qatar's natural gas.

So ultimately, this is about regime change in Doha, which will most probably mean at least an attempted regime change in Tehran.

Backing up to really see the "big picture" here, I am very much reminded of the Moriarty speech at the end of the 2nd Sherlock Homes movie, "A Game of Shadows". He makes the observation that a war is coming, and he wants a lock on both the bullets and the bandages.

We are seeing an escalating situation in Syria; a war approaching against Qatar,and potentially, against Iran (which most probably means, war with Russia).

In their respective opinion pieces analyzing the conflict and its subsequent effect on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, major US media have favored Israeli and pro-Israel American voices at the expense of Palestinians by a wide margin.

In its tendentious report on the heckling of Sen. John McCain during a Memorial Day speech in San Diego, The Raw Story smears patriotic Americans who know the facts about Israel’s deliberate June 8, 1967 attack on the USS Liberty as “conspiracy theorists.” In order to discredit James Morris’ very public raising of the McCain family’s subsequent involvement in the incident, David Edwards explains:

Conspiracy theorists have long accused McCain and his father, Admiral John S. McCain Jr., of participating in a cover up regarding the USS Liberty.

A little research, however, would have shown that on January 9, 2004, Captain Ward Boston, Jr., USN (Ret.), Senior Counsel to the USS Liberty Court of Inquiry, made the following sworn affidavit:

Infamy at Sea: Israel’s Attack on the USS Liberty 50 Years Later

Only hours after the Liberty arrived it was spotted by the Israeli military. The IDF sent out reconnaissance planes to identify the ship. They made eight trips over a period of three hours. The Liberty was flying a large US flag and was easily recognizable as an American vessel.

Soon more planes came. These were Israeli Mirage III fighters, armed with rockets and machine guns. As off-duty officers sunbathed on the deck, the fighters opened fire on the defenseless ship with rockets and machine guns.

A few minutes later a second wave of planes streaked overhead, French-built Mystere jets, which not only pelted the ship with gunfire but also with napalm bomblets, coating the deck with the flaming jelly. By now, the Liberty was on fire and dozens were wounded and killed, excluding several of the ship’s top officers.

“The international community must ban the import of all goods produced in illegal Israeli settlements and put an end to the multimillion dollar profits that have fueled mass human rights violations against Palestinians,” Amnesty stated.

How Britain aided Israel’s 1967 war

The Centurion was the main British battle tank for around two decades following the Second World War and Israel had already placed orders for it before Eshkol’s trip.

By July 1965, Britain supplied Israel with more than 180 such tanks. Another 150 were transported between that month and May 1967.

They were not the only weapons that Britain gave Israel. Just one week before Eshkol’s government made a surprise attack against Egypt on 5 June 1967, a ship brimming with machine guns, tank shells and armored vehicles sailed to present-day Israel from the English port of Felixstowe. It was among a series of secret weapons deliveries.

Although this condemnation of the Zionist lobby’s implacable warmongering is admirable, in the strictly confined discourse we see on the mainstream media presenters of this caliber refuse to state the obvious, which is that the United States has no right whatsoever to tell any country what to do on any matter, either foreign or domestic. Economic sanctions are an act of war, yet the US has imposed crippling economic sanctions on dozens of countries around the world, strangling the life out of them like a deadly python suffocating its victims.

The Islamic State (ISIS) was originally an Al Qaeda affiliated entity created by US intelligence with the support of Britain's MI6, Israel's Mossad, Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and Saudi Arabia's General Intelligence Presidency (GIP).

The origins of Al Qaeda date back to the Soviet-Afghan war. The Koranic schools in Afghanistan used to train Al Qaeda recruits were financed by the CIA, using textbooks published by the University of Nebraska. That's where the evil ideology of Islamist extremism referred to by PM May originated: The Global War on Terrorism is a lie, Islamic terrorism is a product of US foreign policy which claims to be spreading Western civilization.

Israel Gearing Up for Attack From Hezbollah

Israel on Sunday conducted a surprise two-day drill to test its military’s readiness for war.

The unannounced exercise, which began on Sunday, comprised a surprise 36-hour drill to determine the army's readiness for battle, according to The Times of Israel.

The drills focused on conscripted infantry ground troops, supported by air force units, according to an unnamed Israeli Defense Force (IDF) official with knowledge of the move who spoke on condition of anonymity.

"It's about a fast switch from routine to a situation that's not routine, where you're preparing for it to be something else," the IDF official said, adding that the drill scenario incorporated a gambit showing "Hezbollah carrying out a terror attack against our troops," the Times of Israel reported.

An unnamed senior Israeli military official recently noted that Israel has implemented an enhanced evacuation plan for Lebanese border regions in the event of renewed fighting, according to The Jerusalem Post.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For all of his braggadocio, Nasrallah most likely wouldn't attack Israel inside its borders; that would be the KOD (kiss of death) for Hezbollah, and he has to understand that.

What I think may be getting ready to happen is an Israeli pre-emptive attack against Hezbollah inside Lebanon.

In fact, they may be waiting until the coming war with Iran is well and truly on, to use it as a "shadow of distraction" for coming actions in Lebanon.

Earlier in the day, a group of four people in women's clothes opened fire in the building of the Iranian Parliament, with a subsequent explosion. Another attack involving an explosion took place near the Imam Khomeini shrine.

The shock of defeat in 1967

Fifty years ago, we were told – and this was the common belief then – that Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser had received information from the Soviet Union about a planned Israeli aggression on Syria. He reacted by closing the Strait of Tiran and alerting the Egyptian army. US President Lyndon B. Johnson had declared his full support for Israel, and we heard that King Hussein of Jordan had rushed to Cairo to sign a defense pact with the United Arab Republic (the union that had been formed between Syria and Egypt in February 1958, but by then only consisted of Egypt).

Israel backs Saudi Arabia in confrontation with Qatar

Israeli officials have gleefully endorsed the position of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates in a growing confrontation with Qatar, the most public acknowledgment yet of the deepening alliance between certain Gulf states and Tel Aviv over their common enmity towards Iran.

Meanwhile, evidence has emerged of close cooperation between the United Arab Emirates and a key Israel lobby group to pressure Qatar over its support for the Palestinian resistance organization Hamas.

President Donald Trump's ambassador to the United Nations says the US will not allow the UN to "bully" Israel anymore.

Nikki Haley spoke Wednesday in Jerusalem a day after she berated the UN's top human rights body, charging it lets rights abusers whitewash their images and foes of Israel attack the Jewish state unfairly.

Terror is the Symptom & Zionist Imperialism is the Cancer

Terror attacks in Western cities (Manchester, Paris, Brussels, Nice, London) are allegedly perpetrated by Al Qaeda-ISIS. Yet these groups were trained and funded by Israel, Saudi Arabia, Quatar and the US.
The mass media avoids addressing this anomaly because, as Harvard Fellow, Garikai Chengu explained in 2014, war is big business in the US.
“Since George W. Bush declared the “War on Terror” in October 2001, it has cost the American taxpayer approximately 6.6 trillion dollars and thousands of fallen sons and daughters; but, the wars have also raked in billions of dollars for Washington’s military elite.”

The Six Day War And Israeli Lies: What I Saw At The CIA

On too many occasions in U.S. history, the use of force has been justified with either corrupt intelligence or just plain lies. Such was the case in the Mexican-American War; the Spanish-American War; the Vietnam War; and the 2003 Iraq War. The checks and balances that were needed to prevent the misuse of intelligence were not operative, and Presidents Polk, McKinley, Johnson, and Bush deceived the American people, the U.S. Congress, and the press.

FIFTY YEARS LATER, NSA KEEPS DETAILS OF ISRAEL’S USS LIBERTY ATTACK SECRET

On June 8, 1967, an Israeli torpedo tore through the side of the unarmed American naval vessel USS Liberty, approximately a dozen miles off the Sinai coast. The ship, whose crew was under command of the National Security Agency, was intercepting communications at the height of the Six Day War when it came under direct Israeli aerial and naval assault.
Reverberations from the torpedo blast sent crewman Ernie Gallo flying across the radio research room where he was stationed. Gallo, a communications technician aboard the Liberty, found himself and his fellow shipmates in the midst of an attack that would leave 34 Americans dead and 171 wounded.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This was no "mistake" on the part of the Israeli government; they knew, incontrovertibly, that the vessel they attacked was a US Navy vessel, and wanted to blame Egypt for the attack.

US Ambassador Nikki Haley Blasts UN Human Rights Body’s ‘Chronic Anti-Israel Bias,’ Ahead of Visit to Jewish State

A day before embarking on her first trip to Israel as US ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley demanded that the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) address its bias against the Jewish state.

“It is essential that this council address its chronic anti-Israel bias if it is to have any credibility,” Haley said Tuesday at the opening of the UNHRC’s 35th session in Geneva.

Prior to addressing the council, Haley published an op-ed in the Washington Post in which she called on the UNHRC to “end its practice of wrongly singling out Israel for criticism.”

Israel’s Tzipi Livni faces Swiss war crimes probe

Switzerland’s top prosecutor is investigating former Israeli foreign minister Tzipi Livni for war crimes.

The Office of the Attorney General confirmed to Swiss media that it is examining a complaint brought against Livni in relation to “Operation Cast Lead” – Israel’s assault on Gaza in December 2008 and January 2009 that killed more than 1,400 Palestinians.

The complaint was lodged by the Palestinian rights advocacy group Collectif Urgence Palestine in Geneva when it learned that Livni planned to enter the country.

HACKED EMAILS EXPOSE US WORKING WITH UAE AGAINST IRAN AND QATAR

The email account of one of Washington’s most influential foreign operatives, Yousef Al-Otaiba, has been hacked.

The hacker has allegedly promised to release a trove of these emails publicly.
Otaiba is the United Arab Emirate’s ambassador to the United States, and the Intercept confirms that the Hotmail account in question is the one he used for his business in Washington. The Huffington Post further confirmed that at least one of the emails is authentic, and a UAE spokesperson confirmed Otaiba account had been hacked. None of the eight individuals whose names were involved in the email exchanges – and who were contacted by the Huffington Post for comment – denied that the exchanges took place.

Remembering the U.S.S. Liberty

There has been a lot of media coverage mostly written by Israelis or American Jews regarding Israel’s “victory” fifty years ago during the so-called Six Days War directed against its Arab neighbors but I have yet to see an account that mentions the fate of the U.S.S. Liberty. Nevertheless, the Liberty is not forgotten. This Thursday at noon at Arlington National Cemetery there will be a small gathering for the annual coming together with the survivors and friends of the most decorated ship in the history of the U.S. Navy, a victim of a particularly brutal and unprovoked attack by Israel that has been covered up for half a century by the powers that be in Washington.

A 50-YEAR OCCUPATION: ISRAEL’S SIX DAY WAR STARTED WITH A LIE

Fifty years ago, between June 5 and June 10, 1967, Israel invaded and occupied East Jerusalem, the West Bank, the Gaza Strip and the Golan Heights. The Six Day War, as it would later be dubbed, saw the Jewish David inflict a humiliating defeat on the Arab Goliath, personified perhaps by Gamal Abdel Nasser’s Egypt. “The existence of the Israeli state hung by a thread,” the country’s prime minister, Levi Eshkol, claimed two days after the war was over, “but the hopes of the Arab leaders to annihilate Israel were dashed.” Genocide, went the argument, had been prevented; another Holocaust of the Jews averted.

Report says Israel planned atomic detonation in Sinai if Six Day War went wrong

One the eve of the Six Day War, with the country surrounded by enemies and unsure of its future, Israel developed a “doomsday” plan to detonate an atomic bomb in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula as a warning to the Arabs, The New York Times reported Saturday.

The report was based on an interview conducted by leading Israeli nuclear scholar Avner Cohen with retired IDF brigadier general Itzhak Yaakov, who reportedly oversaw the plan.

“It’s the last secret of the 1967 war,” Cohen told the paper.

Webmaster's Commentary:

A 50-Year Occupation: Israel’s Six Day War Started With a Lie

“The existence of the Israeli state hung by a thread,” the country’s prime minister, Levi Eshkol, claimed two days after the war was over, “but the hopes of the Arab leaders to annihilate Israel were dashed.” Genocide, went the argument, had been prevented; another Holocaust of the Jews averted.

There is, however, a problem with this argument: it is complete fiction, a self-serving fantasy constructed after the event to justify a war of aggression and conquest. Don’t take my word for it: “The thesis according to which the danger of genocide hung over us in June 1967, and according to which Israel was fighting for her very physical survival, was nothing but a bluff which was born and bred after the war,” declared General Matituahu Peled, Chief of Logistical Command during the war and one of 12 members of Israel’s General Staff, in March 1972.

War crimes suit filed in Switzerland against former Israeli minister

The Office of the Attorney General of Switzerland has confirmed that it is examining a criminal complaint against former Israeli foreign minister Tzipi Livni, accused of war crimes by a Geneva-based pro-Palestinian group. Livni recently traveled to Lugano in southern Switzerland for a celebration organised by the Swiss-Israel Association.

According to the Le Temps newspaper, Livni has been named in a legal suit filed on Monday by the Geneva-based Urgence Palestine activist group external link in relation to her role in the Israeli military's “Operation Cast Lead” in the Gaza Strip between December 2008 – January 2009. She was foreign minister and acting prime minister at the time.

The Attorney General’s Office external link confirmed to swissinfo.ch that this ‘[legal] request is presently being studied’.

Webmaster's Commentary:

50th Anniversary of Israel’s Infamous USS Liberty Attack

On June 8, during Israel’s preemptive Six-Day War, an act of aggression, not self-defense against regional Arab states, the IDF did the unthinkable.

It provocatively attacked its main ally, striking the USS Liberty intelligence gathering ship, in international waters about 25.5 nautical miles northwest of Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula in international waters.

The incident took 34 US lives, another 171 wounded, the vessel severely damaged, lucky to stay afloat.

It was deployed to monitor belligerents’ communications in response to Israeli aggression on Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Iraq – not the other way around.

Israel Expected to Announce 2,600 New Settlement Units in West Bank: Settler Leaders Condemn Planned Announcement as 'Insufficient'

According to Israeli NGO Peace Now, the Israeli Civil Administration is planning to announce some 2,600 new settlement housing units across the occupied West Bank. This includes 2,500 in existing settlements, and 102 units in the new Amichai settlement.

In addition to the controversial new settlement, some 1,000 of the settlement units are said to be slated for isolated settlements outside of the major blocs, and other areas deep within the West Bank, moves likely to significantly undermine any chances for peace talks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word please; note that after your visit to Israel, and your strong, and publicly expressed desire to see peace happen between the Israelis and the Palestinians, the government of Israel has, collectively and effectively, "relieved itself" in your face, and are telling you it's raining.

With the signing off on these settlements, not only has the Israeli government squelched any possible peace deal you might have wanted to broker, but also, because of the engineering of the locations of these Jewish-only settlements, made it impossible for a contiguous state of Palestine to exist.

With "friends" like Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu, who needs enemies?!?

Let Palestine be “wiped out,” sings Jerusalem Day mob

This year, the flag paraders were bolder about their plans for ethnic cleansing than ever before.

Stickers saying “Kahane was right” – a reference to the late Israeli lawmaker Meir Kahane – are a regular sight at the parade, but this year they were more popular than in previous years.

In the 1980s, when few talked about it openly, Kahane evangelized for the idea of total expulsion of the Palestinians.

It has long been common for marchers to belt out racist songs, including “Zachreni Na,” with its call for ethnic cleansing: “Palestine – May their name be wiped out!”

This year, however, it seemed as if that song was the official anthem of the parade, repeated ecstatically countless times.

Trump Signs Waiver Delaying Israel Embassy Move

Though he waited until the last possible moment to actually sign the document, President Trump today signed a waiver for the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995, delaying the relocation of the US Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The Trump Administration had been indicating such a delay for weeks, though officially he’d been “undecided” until today, the deadline for the waiver.

White House officials, who were refusing all comment as recently as yesterday, today confirmed that President Trump they are maximizing chances of a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians by holding off on the embassy move. The Israeli government is harshly criticizing the delay, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu saying not moving the embassy would “delay” the peace deal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am very relieved that he did sign the waiver; to not have done this would have had a catastrophic effect on any possibility of a Palestinian state, and true Middle East peace.

* The truth is that Nasser and the other Arab leaders had absolutely no intention of invading Israel in June 1967.

* And Israel’s existence was never in the slightest doubt, as both Israeli and American leaders knew that Israel could easily win any conflict, even against a coalition of Arab states.

Israel’s military indoctrination of children

In his book, The Making of Israeli Militarism, author Uri Ben-Eliezer says writing about Israeli militarism involves “ventur(ing) into an intellectual minefield”, given Jewish history under the Nazis and the perception of Israel as a safe haven. Yet, decades of Arab- Israeli conflict have produced seven full-scale wars, two Intifadas, and many hundreds of violent incidents.

Ben-Eliezer believes that, beginning in the 1930s, militarism “was gradually legitimized within the Yishuv, the Jewish community in Palestine, then within the new state [it was] crystallized into a value, a formula, and an ideology.” Over time, it acquired a dynamic of its own, and then, during the 1948 war, it “acquired full legitimacy” and became decisive in setting policy.

Rejoicing in ethnic cleansing

Blurring the lines between history and myth, Zionist ideology and the state of Israel which is built upon it treat the Old Testament as a history book.

Artists ditch Israel’s pinkwashing film festival

A group of filmmakers, artists and presenters have canceled their scheduled appearances at TLVFest, Israel’s premier LGBTQ film festival in Tel Aviv, following appeals by queer Palestinian activists and boycott supporters to withdraw.

The high-profile cancellations in support of the Palestinian-led boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement prompted The Jerusalem Post to admit that while the festival “has been around for more than a decade, it has never faced a campaign this successful against it.”

Last week, award-winning South African film director John Trengove withdrew from the festival, which will begin on 1 June. He requested that his film, The Wound (Inxeba), not be screened.

“With the pain of the apartheid struggle still fresh in our collective consciousness, the issue is, as you can imagine, a very sensitive one for many South Africans,” Trengove wrote in a letter to the film festival’s organizers?.?

Israel main cause of Palestinian suffering, UN says

Israel’s occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip, which will exceed the 50-year mark in June, is “the main cause” of Palestinian humanitarian needs, the United Nations has affirmed.

“The occupation denies Palestinians control over basic aspects of daily life, whether they live in the Gaza Strip or in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem,” according to a report released Wednesday by the UN humanitarian coordination agency OCHA.

“At its heart, the crisis in the [occupied Palestinian territories] is one of a lack of protection for Palestinian civilians – from violence, from displacement, from restrictions on access to services and livelihoods, and from other rights violations – with a disproportionate impact on the most vulnerable, children in particular,” OCHA head David Carden said.

Israel push to ban alternative views of Holocaust on Internet

IN 1998, AN ARTICLE APPEARED IN THE jOURNAL OF HISTORICAL REVIEW (IHR) penned by Mark Weber, titled “Jewish Group Demands More Anti-Revisionist Laws.” At that time, only five or six European countries had holocaust denial or hatred incitement laws. Now that number is 19 (virtually all), plus the European Union. Joining them are Israel, Australia and the United Arab Emirates.

This is all due to the lobbying of Jewish groups, because, they say, “Jews' rights are best protected in open and tolerant democracies that actively prosecute all forms of racial and religious hatred." But why should conducting research into the Holocaust and finding reason to have an alternative view be considered “hatred”? Only because Jews fear such views will spread if the public has the opportunity to learn what these researchers have found. Thus it is actually the Jewish groups spreading the hatred against those they have labeled Deniers.

Within Israel, Gaza, and the West Bank, we may well see catastrophic violence ensue, from the signing of this bill.

I hope and pray that President Trump signs another 6 month waiver, but after his obvious bromance with Netanyahu on this first international trip, I frankly doubt it.

On 9 March 2016, a U.S. civil court ruled that Iran must pay to some victims of the 9/11 attacks $10.5 billion in fines, and the Obama Administration had no comment, so the U.S. press ignored the verdict almost totally. But this verdict was the only official U.S. court ruling thus far about state-sponsorship of the 9/11 attacks, 16 years after the event. It was therefore huge news on 9 March 2016 — it created a precedent, for the U.S. government to allege that Iran had caused the 9/11 attacks and is consequently ‘the number one terrorist state’ (as Israelis have long claimed). But it received very little coverage at the time.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The concept, of Iran being responsible for 9/11, is absolutely ludicrous, with utterly not a shred of evidence for this having happened.

Had such a thing really happened, and particularly during the Bush administration, and they truly believed Iran was the culprit, Tehran, and the rest of the country, would have been pulverized into a sea of molten glass in revenge.

I am profoundly upset and annoyed at what President Trump has done, by arming one of the most vicious nation-states in the Middle East, with a human rights track record making Attila the Hun look compassionate; which exports violent, Wahabi Islam; and is one of the most intense perpetrators of radicalised Islam in the region, and the world.

But he did this because Saudi Arabia and Israel both see Iran as an alleged "existential threat" to the region.

And why?!?

Because since the 1979 revolution, Iran has been able to cobble together both a Constitution, and a moderate Islamic theocracy, where ordinary people have a chance to better their lot in life through education; get to vote in elections; and create an economy which is growing, and has the 2nd largest economy in the Middle East.
Iran Economic Overview

Their banks do not charge compound interest, but only a simple percentage of the loan as the fees for doing business.

But the arming of Saudi Arabia to the teeth, which this deal has done, sets both Saudi Arabia and the US on an almost unstoppable road to war against Iran, which will most probably mean war with Russia.

Watch for massive demonisation of both Iran and Russia to follow, in the next weeks and months, to attempt to "groom" the American people for an attack against it.

Russian officials, both political and military, have stated, unequivocally, that should Iran be attacked, Russia will come to its aid militarily.

You know that archetypal dream of a slo-motion train wreck, which you can see building up, but are helpless to prevent it?!? That's kind of where this country is.

By Definition, An Aggressor Cannot Act in Defense

The statement that Israel has the right to defend itself against Palestine is similar to the statement that if, say, the US annexed, occupied, and started building illegal settlements in Cuba (the parts the US isn’t already illegally occupying and using as a torture camp, Guantanamo), then the US would have the right to “defend” itself against Cubans acting in retaliation to US aggression.

Everyone aside from blind fundamentalists and/or the hopelessly corrupt would laugh at the notion that in such a situation, US action against resistant Cubans would be “defense”. Likewise, the world laughs at the idea that Israel can “defend” itself against the vastly more outgunned Palestinians resisting Israeli aggression.

International law reflects the common sense dynamics of this situation, which any child could easily understand and naturally grasp.

Radical? Zionist Book Burner More Likely

For some days now I’ve been feeling a little bored because my new book Being in Time didn’t seem to be attracting any real opposition. My arch-enemy Alan Dershowitz declined calls to disrupt my USA tour which, in fact, was a great success and all-in-all, the launch of the book seemed to be going smoothly, on the verge of going snooze-ly.

But seemingly everything changed.

Yesterday, on my way to the event in Cluny, Newcastle I learned that the music venue had capitulated to the Zionist lobby's pressure. Cluny’s manager, Joel Thomson, told me over the phone that they had received two emails and had decided to withdraw. It took a local friend around five minutes to trace a new location. However, when I arrived at The Cluny around 6.30 PM (to divert the traffic to the new location), I ran into some appalling behaviour by staff members and the owner.

Trump: Dancing with Wolves on the Titanic

Robert Fisk put it best: “Trump Is About To Really Mess Up In The Middle East”. Following his fantastically stupid decision to attack the Syrian military with cruise missiles, Trump or, should I say, the people who make decisions for him, probably realized that it was “game over” for any US policy in the Middle-East so they did the only thing that they could do: they ran towards those few who were actually happy with this aggression against Syria: the Saudis and the Israelis. Needless to say, with these two “allies,” what currently passes for some type of “US foreign policy” in the Middle-East will only go from bad to worse.

US Aid To Israel - The Real Deal

May 27 07:57

The True Cost of Israel

American aid to Israel is something like a pot of gold that keeps on giving. Both sides in the discussion would probably agree that the domestic Israel Lobby has been instrumental in sustaining the high level of aid ... Since the foundation of the state of Israel in 1948, it has been "the largest cumulative recipient of U.S. foreign assistance since World War II," according to the Congressional Research Service. The United States has provided Israel with $233.7 billion in adjusted for inflation aid between 1948 through the end of 2012, reports [the Israeli daily newspaper] Haaretz ... Israel also benefits in other ways, frequently due to legislative action by Congress ... The U.S.-Israel relationship is yet another instance where the perceived needs of an American "ally" take precedence over genuine national interests.

Bahrainis hold more anti-regime rallies nationwide

People in Bahrain hold more rallies nationwide in protest at the Manama regime’s recent bloodshed in the besieged village of Diraz, which is home to the spiritual leader of the country’s Shia majority, Sheikh Isa Qassim.

On May 23, Bahraini forces raided Diraz, which has been under a military siege for almost a year, and stormed into the home of Sheikh Qassim.

During the raid, regime forces killed at least five demonstrators, wounded dozens and arrested over 280 people during the crackdown on Diraz, which took place shortly after a meeting between US President Donald Trump and Bahraini King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifah in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question of why President Trump is so excellent at making such horrifically bad choices in foreign policy in the Middle East just gives me nightmares.

He's cosied up to one of the worst suppressors of human rights in the region,AKA Saudi Arabia; selling them bombs with which to continue their genocide in Yemen, and ultimately start a war against Iran, which has done absolutely nothing wrong, except develop a truly moderate, Constitutional Muslim democracy, and be the alleged "existential threat" claimed by both Israel and Saudi Arabia.

And the Al Khalifa monarchy in Bahrain?!? Please, don't get me started!!

The Sunni monarchy has been mercilessly persecuting peaceful Shiia protestors who are advocating for a Constitutional Monarchy; they have been jailed, tortured into confessions for crimes they have not committed; convicted by kangaroo courts and given long prison sentences.

Even the first responders who treated these protestors from their injuries and wounds by the Bahraini police have been jailed, tortured, convicted of crimes they did not commit, and committing them to long prison sentences as well.

I have warned the Bahraini government over the years on this blog, that if there was no attempt to achieve a political compromise with their Shiite citizens, there would be a tipping point, and we may well be looking at that tipping point right now.

And it may come at such a price that there will be a violent revolution against the monarchy, and whoever will be in control will be virulently anti-American, because of this country's wholehearted support of this wretched, tone-deaf monarchy, and its government.

At that point, the US 5th Fleet, which is hosted by Bahrain, may well have to find a new home.

UN alarm over conditions for Palestinian prisoners

The United Nations has called Israel to improve conditions for Palestinians in custody, expressing alarm over reports of "punitive measures by Israeli authorities" against hundreds of prisoners who are on hunger strike for nearly 40 days.

More than 1,500 prisoners launched the action on April 17 to press for an end to administrative detention and solitary confinement, as well as longer and more regular family visits, landlines installed in prisons and better healthcare.

The protest has continued without resolution and the health of hundreds of participating prisoners has began to "deteriorate significantly," Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, the UN high commissioner for human rights, said in a statement on Wednesday.

"I am especially alarmed by reports of punitive measures by the Israeli authorities against the hunger strikers, including restricted access to lawyers and the denial of family visits," Zeid said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When these men start to die (and some of them will, even with NG feeding), the Palestinian blowback against Israel may take a very dark, violent turn here.

The bottom line here, when it comes to Palestinian prisoners, there are no standard rules of law, to which truly civilized countries adhere.

"Secret evidence" and indefinite detention is unacceptable, in most judicial practices around the world; it should be unacceptable against Palestinian prisoners as well.

Arms Deal Stories Omit War Crimes Arms Will Be Used For

The Trump administration wrapped up a weapons deal with the Saudi Arabian government this week that will be worth up to $350 billion over the next ten years. News of the deal came as Trump visited Riyadh and paid fealty to one of the United States’ most enduring allies in the Middle East.

The vast majority of the reports on the topic, however, omitted a rather key piece of context—namely, whom the weapons will be used to kill.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These weapons will be used to complete the Saudi genocide in Yemen, and ultimately, the US and Israel are planning to use Saudi Arabia as a proxy force for a war against the Iranians.

Of course, the gorilla, napping, splayed out all over the Bosendorfer Grand Piano, is Russia; Russian civilian and military leadership has consistently promised Iran that it will come to its aid if it is attacked militarily.

A war against Russia over Iran?!?!?

Folks, this potential scenario is just about as serious as is a heart attack, and my assessment is that it is coming, sooner, rather than later.

That President Trump has thrown the US's lot in with a country with so vile a human rights record, that it makes Attila the Hun look downright compassionate in comparison, just boggles the mind.

But of course, both Israel and the Saudi government want regime change in Tehran, so, that is precisely what President Trump is going to attempt to get them, even though a war against Iran will most likely mean war with Russia.

And such a war is a war that the US military might not be able to win, because at this time in its history, the US military doesn't have the weaponry, the money, the troop strength, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia.

SYRIA - TRUTH SLIPS THROUGH IN THE NEW YORK TIMES - NATO PREPS TO FIGHT IRAN AND RUSSIA

The Islamic proxy forces of the "west", al-Qaeda under its various disguises, Ahar al-Sham and even ISIS are mostly done. The latest especially is no longer a capable military force but is reverting to guerilla levels of operation. Its final defeat will take a long time but it must and will be achieved by local forces.

Despite that the U.S. pressed on NATO members to let the NATO organization join its "fight against ISIS". The single NATO members were already part of the U.S. coalition. But NATO as an organization brings large scale command and control capabilities as well as additional resources. (All under U.S. control.)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A larger, regional, if not world war, is coming; we have been in the opening phases of that war for some time now, even though few will acknowledge it.

I am reminded of the second Sherlock Holmes movie, "A Game of Shadows", where the evil Moriarty makes the observation that war is coming, and he has the "lock" on both the bullets and the bandages: so it is with the West's military/industrial complex, which has metaphorically punctured President Trump's throat; swallowed whatever morality President Donald Trump ever had before he took his Oath of Office, and replaced it with the pure, immoral venom of war.

That President Trump has thrown America's lot in with Saudi Arabia, coupled with the huge arms deal he just signed off on, is appalling to me, on every possible level.

This, for a country where its human rights record makes Attila the Hun look downright compassionate in comparison?!?

There is utterly no doubt in my mind that some of those arms will be used to finish the Saudi's on-going genocide in Yemen, then be used against Iran, which is both Saudi Arabia's and Israel's "alleged existential threat" in the region.

And why?!? Because, since the revolution in 79, it has become a moderate, flourishing constitutional Islamic republic, where the rights of religious minorities are protected, and its people are succeeding.

Oh, and don't forget; Israel's government got a little "antsy" over the Saudi deal, so President Trump has just OK'd another $75 million dollars more for "Israeli defense", over and above the $38 billion dollar, 10 year deal deal, signed in December of last year.

PM says US agreed to boost Israel military aid amid concern over Saudi deal

So I give you President Donald "Moriarty" Trump, who firmly believes war is good for business, because our weapons are the only things people from other countries want to buy; and so, war is what he shall have.

Never mind that the US and its allies may well not win this war, particularly against Russia, because this country doesn't have the weaponry; the money, the troop strength; or the manufacturing to insure a victory in a conventional war against Russia.

When Peace Is A Commodity: Trump In The Middle East

In Riyadh, Trump couldn’t mention where most of the the 9/11 hijackers came from or whose Sunni cult-faith was the inspiration for Isis – nor which country chopped off heads with Isis-like relish. (Answer: Saudi Arabia). And when he arrived in Israel on Monday, Trump was faced with a new censorship protocol: don’t mention who was occupying whose property in the West Bank or which country was outrageously and continuously stealing land – legally owned by Arabs – for Jews and Jews only. (Answer: Israel).

US Boosting Israeli Military Aid By Millions: Netanyahu

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says the US has increased its military aid to Tel Aviv by tens of millions of dollars.

“Three days ago, the US added another $75 million to the aid package,” Netanyahu said on Wednesday, without giving a timeframe for the money’s arrival.

‘ISRAEL DOESN’T NEED GREEN LIGHT FROM WASHINGTON FOR SETTLEMENT BUILDING’

A day after Trump left the Jewish state, Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman confidently stated that Israel doesn't need White House approval if it wants to continue building.

Israel doesn’t need permission from Washington to build homes in West Bank settlements, Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said on Wednesday, adding that plans for several thousand units could be advanced in two weeks.

“We didn’t ask for a green light, and we won’t ask for a green light [from the US].

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is Minister Lieberman, verbally "relieving himself", and claiming it's raining, and he does so because previous US Presidents have allowed the politicians in Tel Aviv to do this with impunity.

Iranian Drones Circling Above US Aircraft Carrier 'Getting on Pentagon's Nerves'

Iranian unmanned aerial vehicles are said to have become a fixture in the skies above the USS George H.W. Bush deployed to the Persian Gulf to take part in Washington's anti-Daesh efforts in the Middle East, political analyst Ilya Plekhanov wrote for Sputnik, adding that these surveillance missions have gotten on the Pentagon's nerves.

"Americans use this aircraft carrier to carry out airstrikes against Daesh targets in Iraq and Syria. Iranians use their drones to observe these operations, irritating US troops who are unable to do anything about it since they are in international waters," the analyst said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I certainly hope that no Naval commander in the Persian Gulf is going to go "all cowboy" on these Iranian drone deployments, and decide he's going to shoot them out of the sky "to teach those danged Iranians a lesson", despite the reality that the ships are sailing in international waters.

That huge weapons deal which President Trump has just inked with Saudi Arabia, coupled with the increase in funds for US defensive (and in their case, offensive) weapons capabilities to Israel, should be giving giving the Iranian government pause right now, in terms of defending itself from a proxy US/Saudi/Israeli attack against it, and just what Russia is prepared to do to prevent this from being successful, if such a thing actually happens.

If I were Iranian President Rouhani right now, I would be picking up a hot line to Russia's President Putin, and having a serious conversation about this possibility.

US grants Israel extra defence aid: Netanyahu

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Washington has added tens of millions of dollars in extra defence aid for Israel, a day after US President Donald Trump wound up a visit.

He did not say over what timeframe the money would be disbursed. The addition comes on the heels of a weekend announcement of a massive US-Saudi arms deal.

Under a 2016 agreement, Washington already bankrolls Israel's military spending to the tune of $3.8 billion dollars annually over 10 years, making the Jewish state the top recipient of US assistance.

"Three days ago, the US added another $75 million to the aid package for the missile defence programme," Netanyahu said at a memorial ceremony for Israel's dead in the 1967 Six-Day War.

He did not elaborate.

Israel relies heavily on US military aid. Its total defence budget amounts to some $16 billion, excluding US assistance.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

While homeless Vets still sleep rough in our streets; while the US infrastructure rots; while kids are dodging bullets on their way home from school because the gangs in this country are out of control; Mr. President, please: what the hell are you thinking, in doling out taxpayer dollars to fund an horrifically apartheid, self-proclaimed theocracy, with nuclear weapons?!?
