Syria Imposes New Rules of Engagement on Israel

On Thursday 10th May 2018, an unprecedented exchange of strikes happened between Israel and Syria. The mainstream media, as well as some “alternative” media like Russia Today, were quick to relay the Israeli army version, according to which the Zionist entity “retaliated” to an “Iranian attack by Revolutionary Guards’ Al-Quds Force” consisting of “twenty rockets” fired at Israeli positions in the occupied Golan, four of which were “intercepted by the Iron Dome” and the others “crashed into Syrian territory”, no damage being recorded in Israel. Israel has reportedly responded to this unprecedented “act of aggression” by a “large-scale operation” that would have destroyed “the entire Iranian infrastructure in Syria”, in order to deter the Islamic Republic from any stray impulse of future strikes.

Israel Has No Real Desire for War with Iran, But US Might Lead Battle

Israel has launched its biggest attack ever on Iranian forces in Syria. This is a serious development, but reports of the entire Middle East being on the verge of all out war fail to fully appreciate the motives and intentions of the various players.

Looked at from the Israeli point of view, it is an excellent moment to act against Iran in Syria because it is unlikely that the Iranians will respond in a serious way.

In the wake of Donald Trump’s withdrawal of the US from the Iran nuclear deal, the Iranians want to show the rest of the world, and particularly the Europeans, that they are the reliable and pacific upholders of the 2015 treaty.

This phase may not last long and does not mean that the Iranians have any faith in the EU states keeping the accord alive. But they do want to ensure that the EU and others will only grudgingly cooperate with the reimposition of draconian sanctions by the US.

The Palestinians who can't return yet can't forget

Only seven miles separate the elderly Palestinian couple’s first home from what may be their last, but the short journey is one they may never make again.

That is because one is a Palestinian town inside the blockaded Gaza Strip and the other no longer exists.

All that remains of Hiribiya, the village where Saber and Huda Deeb were born in 1940s colonial-era Palestine, are two old Arab buildings in an area that is now an Israeli kibbutz, Zikim.

The Palestinian whose life spans the 'Catastrophe' of his people

The event whose 70th anniversary is celebrated by Israel is lamented by Palestinians as the Nakba, or “Catastrophe” - the displacement of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians.

And on May 14, three days before he turns 97, he will witness what many Palestinians like him see as another setback to their dream of statehood: the United States will open its new embassy in Jerusalem on land that Jadallah said was once farmed by his village.

“We have lived a life of Nakbas. We have never experienced happiness or tranquillity,” he said in the living room of the family home, near Sur Baher’s imposing Omari mosque.

The new embassy will lie on a hillside across the valley from Sur Baher, on what he said was once village land growing figs, grapes and wheat. In the decades since Israel was created, it has been enveloped in Jerusalem’s municipal boundaries.

Travel Bans, Restrictions And Barbed Wire

Do you think it is that simple to travel around the Middle East? Think twice!

Ask Palestinians, about trying to get from a point A to a point B in their own nation.

Some time ago, sitting in an old Ottoman hotel in Bethlehem, I asked a waiter what it takes to travel from there to Gaza, where he said, several of his relatives were living. He looked at me as if I had fallen from the Moon:

“There is no way I could travel there. If my relatives get very sick or die, then, in theory, I could apply for an Israeli travel permit to go there, but there is absolutely no guarantee that they would approve, or that I could get to Gaza on time…”

U.S. Goes Rogue

In reaching this decision, Trump ignored the advice – make that, pleas – of traditional U.S. allies such as France, Germany, and the United Kingdom.

Instead, the president chose to heed the counsel of his new friends Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Viewed from this perspective, May 8, 2018 marks the inauguration of a Saudi-American-Israeli axis and a major realignment of U.S. strategic relationships.

AS GAZA SINKS INTO DESPERATION, A NEW BOOK MAKES THE CASE AGAINST ISRAELI BRUTALITY

ISRAEL CELEBRATES a double anniversary on May 15 this year, the founding of the state and the formal establishment of the Israeli Defense Forces, the name the state gave to its combined army, navy, and air force. Armed statehood fulfilled the political Zionists’ dream of gathering Jews from the ancient Diaspora under their own government in what they declared to be their “promised land.” During the battle over the land between 1947 and 1949, the IDF expelled three-quarters of the indigenous population. Of the 750,000 Palestinian Arabs who fled, 250,000 took shelter in Gaza, a tiny pocket of southwest Palestine then occupied by the Egyptian army. The destitute and traumatized refugees were three times more numerous than the 80,000 Gazans who took them in.

The remarkable disappearing act of Israel’s car-bombing campaign in Lebanon or: What we (do not) talk about when we talk about ‘terrorism’

“With Sharon’s backing, terrible things were done. I am no vegetarian, and I supported and even participated in some of the assassination operations Israel carried out. But we are speaking here about mass killing for killing’s sake, to sow chaos and alarm, among civilians, too. Since when do we send donkeys carrying bombs to blow up in marketplaces?”

Infamous Islamophobe pastor picked to pray at US embassy opening in Jerusalem

The man picked to lead a prayer at Donald Trump's much-vaunted opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem, is a militant Baptist preacher, known, among other things, for calling Islam's Prophet Muhammad "a bloodthirsty warlord."

As if Monday's relocation of the US Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem needed more controversy, the priest picked to lead a prayer at the unveiling ceremony is Dr. Robert Jeffress, a megachurch Baptist preacher from Dallas and long-time supporter of Donald Trump. Jeffress, who is also a Fox News contributor, announced that he was picked for the occasion in an recent interview with Fox&Friends.

‘You Are a Terror State’: Erdogan Says Israel Pushing Region Into War

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused Israel of using unnecessary aggression in Syria and blamed Tel Aviv for pushing the entire region toward full-scale war.

In an interview with BBC Arabic on Sunday, Erdogan said that Israel is "sowing fear and pushing" the Middle Eastern "region to war."

The Turkish leader also denounced an Israeli airstrike on Syria that took place three days ago, calling it an attack on the sovereignty of the beleaguered nation, now in its seventh year of civil war.

US chose to be 'part of problem,' not solution, with embassy move to Jerusalem – Erdogan

By moving its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, Washington is choosing to be part of the problem in the Middle East rather than working towards a solution, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said.

“The United States has chosen to be a part of the problem rather than the solution with its latest step and has lost its mediating role in the peace process,” Erdogan said in a speech at Britain’s Chatham House think tank on Monday, as quoted by Reuters.

Israeli Drones Fire Firebombs At Protest Tents In Gaza, Army Jams Networks

Several Israeli military drones fired, Monday, dozens of firebombs at the Palestinians and the Great Return March tents, while the military started disrupting and jamming communications networks in the Gaza Strip.

Eyewitnesses said the Israeli drones fired dozens of firebombs at the tents and the residents across the border area, in the northern and eastern parts of the coastal region.

The attack burnt several tents, and property, before dozens of young men and firefighters rushed to extinguish the fire.

Furthermore, the army jammed cellular networks in the Gaza Strip since early morning hours, to prevent the Palestinians from communicating with each other and the rest of the world, especially since the Israeli excessive and lethal use of force have been wildly broadcast live from the coastal region, in addition to all the videos and images that have been uploaded to the Internet through social media websites.

Army Installs Two Iron Gates On Roads Leading To Farmlands Near Bethlehem

Israeli soldiers installed, Monday, two iron gates on agricultural roads leading to Palestinian farmlands in the al-Khader town, south of the West Bank city of Bethlehem.

Ahmad Salah, the coordinator of the Popular Committee against the Annexation Wall and Colonies in al-Khader, said the soldiers installed the iron gates at the entrance of in Khallet al-Fahim area, and Salman Lands area, without any cause or justification.

Salah told the Palestinian News & Info Agency (WAFA) that the Israeli violation would prevent the Palestinians from entering their lands, and added that the soldiers installed, a few days ago, several mobile homes in Khallet al-Fahim, in preparation for a new illegal colony on private Palestinian lands.

Israeli snipers kill scores of Palestinians and wound 1,300 as 35,000 protesters rally against the US Embassy opening in Jerusalem overseen by Trump's Middle East envoy Jared Kushner and daughter Ivanka

Israeli snipers have killed scores of Palestinians and wounded hundreds more as 35,000 protesters rallied against the US Embassy opening in Jerusalem overseen by Donald Trump's Middle East envoy Jared Kushner and daughter Ivanka.

A 14-year-old was among 41 shot dead along the Gaza border on what is already the deadliest single day in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict since a 2014 war between the Jewish state and Gaza's Islamist rulers Hamas.

At least 1,300 more have been injured with about 450 of them by live bullets, according to Gaza officials as the Palestinian government accused Israel of committing a 'terrible massacre' and Amnesty International called the bloodshed an 'abhorrent violation' of human rights.

Israeli-made weapons among arms handed over by militants in Damascus

Israeli-made landmines were found in a large trove of medium and heavy weapons handed over by rebels in southern Damascus, Syria's state media reported. Damascus has repeatedly accused Tel Aviv of aiding militants.

As the Syrian army is driving out the last remaining terrorists from the southern outskirts of Damascus, those who refuse to completely lay down their arms and surrender are being evacuated to rebel-controlled parts of northern Syria, mainly Idlib. As part of the deal with the Syrian authorities, militants are leaving behind medium and heavy weapons.

Out Of Iran Deal, Into War? Either Way, Netanyahu’s Popularity Soars

On Wednesday night, the day after Trump announced his withdrawal from the Iran deal, in between Israeli airstrikes in Syria, Israel’s Channel 2 News reported the Likud’s highest polling numbers in a decade — 35 seats, five more than it holds today.

Is it really that simple? Netanyahu, 12 years in office, facing multiple corruption investigations and a possible indictment, just pulls out the magic security card and his polls rise as if standing at attention. As Arlo Guthrie once said, “it’s amazing that somebody can get away with singing a song this dumb, for that long.”

‘Terrible massacre’: Israel kills 41, injures 1,700 Gaza protesters as US embassy opens in Jerusalem

Forty-one Palestinian protesters have been killed by Israeli fire during demonstrations ahead of the US embassy inauguration in Jerusalem, the Palestinian health ministry said Monday.

More than 1,700 protesters have been injured in Gaza so far on what has been the most violent day of the six week long Great March of Return. Those wounded on Monday include 74 children and 23 women, according to the ministry.

The Palestinian government denounced Monday’s violence as a “terrible massacre” perpetrated “by the forces of the Israeli occupation”, and called for an immediate international intervention to prevent further deaths.

Israel Is Celebrating the Opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem

Israel on Sunday kicked off festivities to celebrate the opening of the new U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem, even as it bolstered its forces along the Gaza border and in the West Bank in anticipation of mass Palestinian protests of the move.

A day before the embassy’s formal opening, Israel hosted a gala party at its Foreign Ministry with President Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka, her husband, Jared Kushner, and other American VIPs.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised Trump’s “bold decision” in upending decades of U.S. policy by recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. “It’s the right thing to do,” a smiling Netanyahu told the jubilant crowd.

The Summer of War and Chaos: US-Israel Plan to Balkanize the Middle East

Tensions are at an all-time high in the Middle East as Israel launched more than sixty missiles at Syria because Israel claimed that Iranian forces fired rockets into the Golan Heights, an Israel-occupied territory since the 1967 Six-Day War.

ran responded to the Israeli claims in a Zero Hedge report:

In the aftermath of one of the most severe Israeli attacks on Syria “in decades,” Iranian lawmakers said Thursday that Iran had no role in the attack, and that Shia nation doesn’t operate any bases in Syria.

Mohammad Javad Jamali Nobandegani, a member of the Iranian Parliament’s national security and foreign policy committee, said Israel’s claim that Iran had provoked Israel by firing first was “a lie,” adding that

“Israel’s history of carrying out unprovoked attacks in Syria has been well-documented.” “Iran does not have military base in Syria,” Nobandegani added

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Trust me, Israel, enabled by the US government will continue to provoke and provide provocations against Iran, until Iran has no recourse but to fight back; at least, that is what Israeli government officials are hoping to attack.

So, one has to wonder; what will Russia do, if there are more attacks against Syria, with the ultimate goal of getting Iran to act militarily?!? I certainly hope that Russia's Vlad Putin has his chess moves in order here, because I think at the moment, he is the only world leader capable of preventing the Middle East from devolving into the chaos Netanyahu and Trump seem to so desperately want to see happen.

Israeli rocket Spike NLOS only slightly damaged Syrian Pancir-S1

Many Western media have triumphantly announced that Israel's rocket Spike NLOS has managed to destroy the Syrian rocket-cannon system Pancir-S1 of Russian production.
Together with the news, the recordings and claims that the Pancir-S1 was successfully destroyed: Even that "rocket hit" showed the Israeli superiority over Russian weapons.
What really happened and what kind of character does it really have?
Israel says that - besides Pancir-S1 - the Syrian rocket system "Buk-M1-2, S-200 and S-75 has been destroyed.
He says that the success of his rocket Spike NLOS recorded a camera that is in its nose.

Protecting Israel Is Their Full-Time Job

I have a number of times discussed how the U.S. and other governments have legislated and otherwise promoted Jewish and Israeli interests in ways that most people would find unacceptable if they were aware of what exactly has been going on. Here in the United States, special Medicare coverage and immigration status have been granted, often concealed in other legislation, to benefit holocaust survivors and Russian Jews seeking to emigrate. State legislatures and the U.S. Congress have meanwhile been working hard to pass legislation that blocks and even criminalizes the non-violent Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) protests against Israeli behavior while universities have been banning anti-Israel demonstrators and groups on campus because they apparently are offensive to the sensitivities of some Jewish students.

Israel Baits the Hook. Will Syria Bite?

At face value, for Iran to inexplicably launch missiles at Israel, unprovoked and achieving no conceivable tactical, strategic, or political gain strains the credibility of Israel’s narrative even further.

But it is perhaps published US policy designating Israel as a hostile provocateur tasked with expanding Washington’s proxy war against Damascus that fully reveals the deadly and deceptive game Israel and the Western media are now playing.

For years, US policymakers admitted in their papers that the US desired regime change in Iran and sought to provoke a war to achieve it.

Israel Baits the Hook

The corporate-funded Brookings Institution – whose sponsors include weapon manufacturers, oil corporations, banks, and defense contractors – published a 2009 paper titled, “Which Path to Persia? Options for a New American Strategy Toward Iran,” and would not only spell out the US desire for regime change in Iran but devise a number of options to achieve it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is most likely why we will see a "false flag" in either Syria or Iran, to be blamed on Iran, to give the US/Israeli governments the "justifications" for a war, which Russia's Vlad Putiin is keen to see NOT go forward, as that will diminish Russia's expanding influence in the region, both geopolitically and economically.

I am, for one, rather astonished that no large false flag has yet been concocted to bring such a war about, although God knows, with its attacks on Iranian bases in Syria, the IDF has truly tried to make this happen.

Expect to see more aggression by Israel and/or the United States, until such a war is accomplished.

Israel Nudges Trump Towards War With Iran

So what does all this add up to? In pulling the United States out of the international nuclear deal, Trump has heightened tensions with Iran on a number of issues unrelated to whatever nuclear ambitions that country may have. Netanyahu, who hated the nuclear deal from the start because it eased tensions and diminished pressure on Iran, now sees his opportunity to goad the Islamic Republic with pinprick airstrikes against Iranian positions in Syria. With Israel killing Iranians, a retaliatory response is inevitable, which is what Netanyahu wants. In this dangerous escalation of tensions, Trump has positioned his country on the side of Israel and against Iran; this will encourage further provocations by Netanyahu.

You don’t have to be Count Metternich to perceive where this is leading. It’s difficult to see how, under these circumstances, war can be avoided, while it’s easy to see how events could flip out of control and lead to war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is why Netanyahu is hoping to goad the US government into its own war against Iran and Syria, the costs of which would only be borne by American blood, and American money, which will galvanize Moscow to fight against the US in both Syria and Iran.

Such a war, at this time, would be catastrophic to the regime in DC, because at this time in its history, the US military doesn't have the weaponry; the troop strenth; the money; or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to any conventional war against Russia. Once those in the bowels of power in DC understand this, such a war could go both nuclear, and global.

So what would the current Netanyahu government have to gain from such a war?!?

Control over all the oil fields in the Middle East; that, and with which currency the oil is sold for, are the primary motivating factors here.

Natalie Portman Boycotts Israeli Prize; Right Wing Goes Ballistic

Actress Natalie Portman, a strong supporter of Israel, has come under vicious attack for criticizing that country’s leadership. She now joins the club of scholars, journalists, and political leaders who are vilified by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu or his right-wing cohorts.

Portman was born in Jerusalem, and although her family left Israel when she was only three, she became fluent in Hebrew. She is a dual citizen of Israel and the United States.

While studying at Harvard, she became a research assistant for right-wing Zionist Alan Dershowitz. She directed and starred in a feature film presenting the Jewish side of the 1948 war that established the Israeli state.

So Portman is an unlikely candidate for vilification by conservative Jews. Here’s what happened.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Natalie Portman has just rocketed in my respect level for her, both as an artist, and as a Jewish woman who wants to see peace in Israel. I support her in this, completely.

But I can guarantee her this: there will be a price to pay.

She can now expect that roles will become more difficult to come by, as the Israeli right wing attempts to crucify her, and hang her out to dry, artistically and economically. I can only hope that she, and her husband, have been careful guardians of the money she has earned in previous films, to get them through what may be a difficult economic period for them.

John Bolton snaps at Jake Tapper over Iran deal: ‘We’re not going it alone — we have the support of Israel’

National Security Adviser John Bolton on Sunday argued that President Donald Trump was not “going it alone” when he forced the U.S. to violate a nuclear agreement with Iran because Israel supports the move.

During an interview on CNN, host Jake Tapper noted that America’s European allies are not planning to abandon the deal that prevents Iran from building nuclear weapons — even though the U.S. has reneged on the agreement.

“The U.S. [is] essentially, at least as of now, going it alone,” Tapper said. “How will that force Iran back to the table?”

“We’re not going it alone,” Bolton snapped. “We have the support of Israel, we have the support of the Arab oil-producing monarchies and many others.”

Even though Etaf Wadi seemed unfamiliar with how to use her slingshot it didn’t stop her from firing her small stones towards the Israeli snipers behind the sand berms more than ten times. Most of the stones fell far before their desired target.

Wadi, 56, was one of the thousands of Palestinian demonstrators who protested for the seventh and final Friday of the Great March of Return as it headed into its last days ahead of Nakba Day on May 15th.

The protest is scheduled to end on the 70th anniversary of the Palestinian Nakba, in which approximately 750,000 Palestinians fled or were expelled from their homes during the 14-month Israel-Arab war.

Israeli nuclear weapons were placed on alert and loaded onto Jericho I surface-to-surface missiles and F-4 Phantoms. Determined Israeli counteroffensives were able to turn the situation on both fronts around, and the weapons were not ultimately used.

Marines Said Sent To US Legations In Mideast Ahead Of Jerusalem Embassy Opening

The US has dispatched Marines to bolster security at US diplomatic facilities around the Middle East, Hadashot TV news reported Saturday citing a CNN report, two days ahead of the opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem.

The deployment of Marines, the Israeli TV report said, came because of fears of disturbances related to the opening of the embassy. For weeks, thousands of Gazans have been protesting at the border with Israel, encouraged by Hamas, the terror group that rules the Strip, whose leaders have vowed to ratchet up protests to coincide with the embassy opening.

Obama’s Envoy To Israel Says Embassy Move To Jerusalem ‘Could Help End Conflict’

THE FUTURE OF THE NAKBA

The Zionist conquest of Palestine, which began haphazardly in the early 1880s and was intensified after the turn of the century, reaching its apogee with the British invasion and occupation of the country before the conclusion of World War I, was the inaugural moment of what would become known as the Nakba – the Catastrophe.

Whereas the term “Nakba” was used by Syrian intellectual Constantine Zureik to describe what was befalling the Palestinians in August 1948 (when he wrote and published his classic book Ma’na al-Nakba)>>>

Netanyahu: “Let’s You and Him Fight”: Brandishing the American Miitary

Fred On Everything is P.O.ed!

Why did the Cockatoo-in-Chief renege on the Iran deal deeply prized by Russia, China, France, Germany, England, and the European Union? Why did he deliberately damage relations with Europe and cost American workers many thousands of jobs at Boeing among others? Why do all of this to hurt a country that poses no danger to the United States?

Israel.Israel, Israel. Israel. Israel.
Always Israel.

But while “the Jews” didn’t sink the Iran deal, a comparatively small number of Israel-firsters did. These are the Neocons, warlike and heavily Jewish, plus the Jewish lobby AIPAC plus a few Jewish billionaires. Collectively they determine American foreign policy, and not for the benefit of America........

BEX ALERT - Have Iran and Israël declared a new war?

This fellow jumped the shark a couple of years ago.
This piece seems to follow the Israeli line pretty closely in framing Iran for the Syrian missile strikes.

This morning of 10 May 2018, at approximately 0h30, the al-Qods Force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard – the Iranian military elite – attacked Israël from its bases in Syria. Israël is the Pentagon’s arsenal in the region (sites 51, 53, 55 and 56). The Hebrew state, choosing to escalate, riposted disproportionally, firing close to 70 missiles on Iranian targets in Syria and attempting to destroy the Syrian anti-aircraft defence system.

Israel Now Faces New Rules Of Engagement In Syria

Even as CNN is out with a new report condemning Iran for denying any responsibility or role in the latest massive exchange of fire between Israel and Syria, The New York Times has admitted (albeit buried deep in the story) that Israel was the actual aggressor and initiator of hostilities which threatened to spiral out of control overnight Wednesday and into Thursday morning.

While CNN and most Israeli and mainstream media sources blame Iran for initiating an attack on Israel, on the very day of the early morning strikes (Thursday), the Times acknowledged, "The barrage [of Syria/Iran missiles] came after an apparent Israeli missile strike against a village in the Syrian Golan Heights late Wednesday."

Israel Nudges Trump Towards War With Iran

Donald Trump has put America on a path to war in the Middle East. Future historians will look back on his decision to scuttle the Iran nuclear deal, and related actions, as a folly akin to George W. Bush’s invasion of Iraq. The consequences could be equally catastrophic.

If you wish to understand what’s really going on, don’t just keep your eye on Trump, whose zigzag pronouncements on Mideast strategy have demonstrated a characteristic lack of intellectual coherence. Instead watch Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who thinks in straight lines. His aim is to get America to curtail Iranian power and influence in the region—a level of power and influence, it should be noted, that was greatly heightened by America’s 2003 Iraq invasion, supported avidly at the time by none other than Benjamin Netanyahu.

Elor Azarya returns home to a hero’s welcome after 9-month prison term for killing Palestinian

“I’m glad it’s over”, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, as Elor Azarya, the soldier-medic who shot the incapacitated Palestinian suspect Abdel Fatah Al Sharif, returned home from his prison term served for ‘manslaughter’, after merely 9 months.

The release was early on several counts: First, what was clearly murder got reduced to a ‘manslaughter’ charge to begin with. Then, despite the court noting that Azarya showed no remorse and in fact had said that Al Sharif “deserved to die”, despite the court noting “we have dealt with a case in which the committing of the felony and the level of guilt of the defendant are of excessive egregiousness”, noting that “the reason for shooting by the defendant was not rooted in a sense of danger”, the court gave him a ridiculous sentence of 1.5 years, at the low end of the term suggested even by the prosecution (14-48 months).

Palestinian killed, 167 wounded in final “March of Return” Gaza protest

Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip are protesting for the seventh Friday in a row as part of the Great March of Return movement.

The rallies are part of a six-week protest that will culminate on May 15 to mark what Palestinians refer to as “the Nakba” or “catastrophe” – a reference to Israel’s establishment in 1948, when 750,000 Palestinians were forcibly removed from Palestine.

Since the protests began on March 30, at least 48 Palestinians in the coastal enclave have been killed by Israeli forces and more than 8,500 wounded.

Marchers are demanding the right to return to their homes seized by Israel in 1948.

Protest Erupts in Germany Calling for Release of 'Nazi Grandma'

An 89-year-old woman, dubbed the “Nazi Grandma,” was arrested on Monday and taken to prison to serve her two-year sentence for holocaust denying. Specifically, she suggested that the notorious Auschwitz concentration camp was a “work camp” and was not used for systematic extermination.

Hundreds of protesters, primarily from the Die Rechte party, rallied in the city of Bielefeld, west Germany, on Thursday, calling for the release of Ursula Haverbeck, according to Deutsche Welle.

"Israeli authorities must investigate the shooting of Dalloul and take all measures to ensure that the media can safely cover protests," CPJ's Middle East and North Africa Program Coordinator Sherif Mansour said.

The use of force by the Israel Defense Force, including live fire, has taken a severe toll on Palestinian journalists, Mansour said.

Slowly but surely, it’s beginning to sink in: A clinical lunatic is at the helm of the Jewish state

Declaring that it was long past time for his people to live once again on their ancestral soil, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly began calling Thursday for the Israeli return to their ancient homeland of Iran.

“The land of Iran has long been part of our heritage, and we implore the international community to work with us to ensure its return to the independent Jewish state,” said Netanyahu, adding that Israel was willing to use military force if necessary to reoccupy all 636,400 square miles of present-day Iran that were historically included in the promised land bestowed upon the Jewish people by biblical mandate.

Vladimir Putin Praises Chabad

“I would like to extend my holiday greetings to you and to all of Russian Jewry. I wish you a happy Chanukah and all of the very best, along with your family and all of the Jews in Russia. I must say that there are very positive developments in Russia. New Synagogues and Jewish Centers are opening up, and I am thankful to you for that. I hope that our joint efforts will continue to thrive and progress.”

These were the wishes of Russian President Vladimir Putin to Chief Rabbi of Russia Berl Lazar at a private audience that was granted in honor of Chanukah at the Kremlin office in Moscow.

As Putin Becomes One of World’s Most Powerful Players, His Surprising Jewish Connection is Revealed

In the long history of Jews in Russia, the government has rarely been an ally, and often been the source of persecution. Current Russian president Vladimir Putin, however, is a powerful exception, with Jews playing a significant role in his personal history and his inner circle. With the Russian army a major player in the potentially explosive multi-national puzzle unfolding in Syria, this personal element could become an important, perhaps decisive, factor in how the conflict unfolds.

At the International Assembly of Chabad Representatives in 2007, Russia’s Chief Rabbi, Rabbi Berel Lazar, often referred to as “Putin’s Rabbi”, told a remarkable story about the Russian leader, which he heard from Putin himself.

Putin is a Chabad Lubavitch Puppet

While RT and a lot of alternative news outlets portray Putin as some sort of savior, the reality is that he is just playing his role in the Jewish Babylonian messianic soap new world order. Instead of expelling jewish influence in his country after the fairly recent satanic mass slaughter of up to 80 million of his Russian brothers and sisters by jews after the “Bolshevik” revolution, Putin is calling for harder punishments for anti semitic expressions in Russia. He proposed to members of the European Jewish Congress, that Jews facing a rising tide of anti-Semitism and bigotry farther west should move to Russia, where he said they would be better accepted. Readers of the Jerusalem Post have chosen Putin as their person of the year. See full video:

Russia Bows to US and Israel, No S-300s for Syria

It’s not forthcoming, not now at least. According to Putin’s military technical cooperation aide Vladimir Kozhin, Russia will not supply S-300s to Syria’s military – nor are talks about possible delivery being held.

Kozhin falsely claimed Syrian armed forces have “all” the air defense systems “they need” – a shameful remark, clearly untrue.

Failure to supply with what Syria vitally needs constitutes betrayal – yielding to US/Israeli interests at the expense of its own security.

If Russia fails to confront US-led aggression in Syria more forcefully, Assad could fall, his government replaced, isolating Iran ahead of similar action to replace the Islamic Republic with pro-Western puppet rule.

It’s no match against US/Israeli aggression if events unfold this way. If they achieve regional hegemony, Russia and China are next on Washington’s target list.

Days Ahead Of Moving Embassy To ‘Capital’ Jerusalem, US Has ‘No Position’ On Israeli Border There

Washington has “no position” on what part of Jerusalem should be controlled by Israel or Palestine, the US State Department said, while still calling the city Israel’s “capital” just days before the relocation of the US embassy.

“We are not taking a position on final status [of Jerusalem] issues, including the specific boundaries of Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem, nor on the resolution of contested borders,” the State Department said in a statement on Friday. At the same time, in a seemingly contradictory statement, it added that the relocation of the US diplomatic mission “recognizes the reality that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and the seat of its government.”

The dedication ceremony is scheduled to take place on Monday, May 14, the statement confirmed. The event will be attended by US Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan, as well as Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, Senior Adviser Jared Kushner and adviser Ivanka Trump.

Israel uses intelligence cutouts to target the U.S.

An Israeli intelligence entity called “Black Cube” targeted Obama administration officials such as former foreign policy advisor Ben Rhoads and outside experts, such as the National Iranian American Council’s Trita Parsi, that advocated for passage of the JCPOA known as the “Iran nuclear deal.” Though most media reports reference Black Cube’s self-designation as a “private intelligence company” while noting it employs former Mossad officers, there are reasons to doubt it is entirely unconnected from the Israeli government, which wanted to undermine the JCPOA. Israeli spy Shai Masot, secretly recorded in an Al Jazeera undercover video, freely admitted Israel was setting up just such private corporations to clandestinely do its bidding. While not solely responsible for the Trump Administration’s decision to ditch the JCPOA, Black Cube’s intelligence operation clearly tried to inch the U.S.

Broken deal

Donald Trump claims he is the master of the deal. But when it comes to Iran, it is the art of no deal.

Closer to the truth is probably an attempted forced regime change in Iran.

Unlike others, I have clearly said that it is not the Russian responsibility to “protect” Syria (or Iran) from the Israelis.

For all my respect for Putin, this time he allowed Netanyahu to treat him just like Trump treated Macron. Except that in the case of Putin, he was so treated in his own capital. That makes it even worse.

Israel Using ‘Planned Provocations’ to ‘Get the US into a War With Iran’

The escalation of violence near the Golan Heights and Damascus this week is part of a neoconservative plan to lasso the US into war with Iran, an expert told Sputnik.

Mark Sleboda, a security and international affairs analyst, says the most recent escalation of violence between Israel and Syria shows Israel intends to start a conflict with Iran and seek US support for a larger war campaign.

?What Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu "wants, more than anything else, is to get the US into a war with Iran," Sleboda told Radio Sputnik's Loud & Clear on Thursday.

"There are plenty of neocons in Washington surrounding [US] President [Donald] Trump that want the same thing and are all too willing to play along with this," the analyst said.

Israel Launched Another Attack On Syrian Military Positions

Over the last years Israel attacked Syrian army positions more than 100 times, often in support of al-Qaeda aligned "Syrian rebels". Syria did not respond as it was busy fighting against the Takfiri invasion within the country. In April Israel upped the ante when it attacked the T4 base in the middle of Syria from where Russian and Iranian forces support Syria's fight against ISIS. Iranian soldiers were killed in the attack. The Syrian air defense shot down at least one of the attacking Israeli F-16 jets. This shooting down of the Israeli jets was thought to have established a new balance, but Israel continued to provoke.

On Tuesday, just as Trump announced his breaking of the nuclear deal, Israel launched another strike on what it claimed were Iranian missiles in Syria targeted at Israel. The strike hit a Syrian army depot. Fifteen soldiers, some of them allegedly Iranians, were killed. Even the Israeli media had trouble to find an excuse for the illegal 'preemptive' attack:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This has to be one of the most dishonest pieces of corporate media reporting I have ever seen.

First, no missiles were targeted at Jerusalem. All the military action is taking place in the Golan, which is still legally Syrian territory occupied by Israel.

Second, Israel provoked this escalation by attacking Syria just an hour after Trump pulled out of the Iran deal. The Syrian attack was a response to Israel's provocation.

Third, Syria reports that it was the Syrian army and not the Iranian forces that fired the missiles.
