Statement Regarding Recent Executive Order Concerning Extreme Vetting

To be clear, this is not a Muslim ban, as the media is falsely reporting.

by Donald J Trump

“America is a proud nation of immigrants and we will continue to show compassion to those fleeing oppression, but we will do so while protecting our own citizens and border. America has always been the land of the free and home of the brave.

We will keep it free and keep it safe, as the media knows, but refuses to say. My policy is similar to what President Obama did in 2011 when he banned visas for refugees from Iraq for six months. The seven countries named in the Executive Order are the same countries previously identified by the Obama administration as sources of terror.

Netanyahu in hot water over praise of Trump's wall

Why we must defend those who dare to speak about the ideology of Jewish supremacy

I have recently witnessed the ostracizing and excommunication of two activists, Paul Eisen and Gilad Atzmon, by my local group affiliated to the Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC) using the Zionist method of character assassination of using the labels “racist” “anti-Semitic” as a method of muffling truth.

America Has A Moral Obligation To Help Rebuild The Ravaged Middle East

“Peace, commerce and honest friendship with all nations, entangling alliances with none” - Thomas Jefferson

It is unfortunately incumbent upon the new administration to also pay the proverbial bill, and to fix and rectify the mistakes of the past.

It would be altogether grossly irresponsible and cruel to now leave the entire world in smoke and shambles, burning embers of once great civilizations that have often existed for thousands of years uninterrupted and unmolested.

Braving Israeli bullets in Gaza’s sea

Gaza’s fishermen have already endured regular Israeli attacks during the first few weeks of 2017.

On 4 January, Muhammad al-Hissi went missing after the Israeli navy sunk the vessel on which he worked. Although his body has not been recovered, members of his family have resigned themselves to the probability that al-Hissi was killed.

A memorial service was organized for al-Hissi a few days after he went missing, while his family issued a statement describing him as a “martyr for God’s reward.” Aged 33, he was the father of three children.

“He is an excellent swimmer – like all fishermen,” said Muhammad’s brother Wael. “He would have made it to the shore if he was alive.”

ZION DIVIDED OVER TRUMP’S PLANS FOR ISRAEL

Speaking two days ago at an Israeli security conference, longtime Israel supporter Abe Foxman said that the move would be a blow to peace efforts: “it’s problematic,because it may undo some of the progress we’re all been hoping for.” And the Israeli government doesn’t care about it anyway, but it won’t say so publicly.

“If a quarter of the Strip is needed, then we occupy a quarter of the Strip. If more, then more,” he said, according to Haaretz.

The defense minister, known for his hawkish views and vocal support for settlement activity, lashed out at the international community, including the US, Russia, and especially the EU, for their attempts to play an intermediary role in the Israeli-Palestine dispute.

Will settlement lawsuit set legal precedent?

This land was originally taken under the auspices of temporary military necessity, Etkes said, but it eventually formed the cornerstone of the civilian settlement of Gitit.

The petition, filed on behalf of the Aqraba municipality and the families of the original owners of the land in October last year, calls on the Israeli government to cancel the seizure order made in 1972, Etkes said, because there is no longer any security or military grounds to justify the confiscation.

As of now, the government has not fully replied to the petition.

These are the Palestinian children killed by Israel in 2016

For Palestinian children in the occupied West Bank, 2016 was the deadliest year in the past decade.

Thirty-five Palestinian children were killed by Israeli soldiers, police and armed civilians during the year, all but four of the deadly incidents taking place in the West Bank. Children account for a third of the 105 Palestinians killed by Israeli forces in the West Bank and Gaza Strip during 2016.

America first or the Israeli army first?

The Israeli newspaper Haaretz reports today that “Jared Kushner’s name was removed from a website of a group raising money for the Israeli army”.

A week ago Donald Trump promised the American people that from now on America will come first, but it seems that for Trump’s senior adviser, Jared Kushner, the Jewish state and its army are the priority.

Kushner is expected “to play a major role in drafting Middle East policy in the new administration”, but can a Zionist Jew who raises money for the Israeli army be a peace broker in the Middle East? I’ll let you ponder over that one...>>

KILLING THE FAMILY OF JESUS

Some of the people walking around Palestine, Gaza, and the West Bank are blood relatives of Jesus. Distant blood relatives, but still blood relatives. Given 2000 years, it is possible that the vast majority of present day Palestinians are remote relatives of Jesus.

Israel is killing them.

And YOU are paying for it, which means you share the guilt. YOU are paying for the weapons used to kill the modern day family of Jesus. The moment you sign that 1040 form, you sign a confession, admitting before all the world that you are an accessory in the murder.

Think you are going to get into heaven after an insult like that?

In the video, Zaid Jilani, who writes for The Intercept, confronts Perez in the moments following last Wednesday’s debate among candidates for the leadership of the Democratic Party’s top governing body.

“People are quick to condemn the BDS movement, but there have also been really strong actions against human rights by Israel, for example, 1,600 Palestinians lost their homes last year to home demolitions,” Jilani tells the former labor secretary.

“Absolutely, I understand it’s a complicated issue,” Perez responds as he turns and walks away.

Trump invites Netanyahu to Washington for visit: White House

By Ayesha Rascoe and Matt Spetalnick

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump invited Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to visit Washington in early February during a phone call in which they discussed the importance of strengthening the U.S.-Israeli relationship, the White House said on Sunday.

In his first call with Netanyahu since taking office on Friday, Trump stressed his "unprecedented commitment to Israel's security."

Israel approves settlement homes following Trump inauguration

Israel has approved hundreds of new settlement homes in occupied East Jerusalem, after the staunch pro-Israel US President Donald Trump took office.

Jerusalem Deputy Mayor Meir Turgeman told AFP: "Now we can finally build."

Israel's PM reportedly delayed approval given the opposition of Barack Obama, who infuriated Israel by allowing a UN resolution against settlements to pass.

Settlements in East Jerusalem are considered illegal under international law, though Israel disputes this.

Video: “They came to conquer”

“It’s not a state, or a government or forces that came to enforce the law. They came to conquer.”

That is how resident Raed Abu al-Qiyan described an Israeli police raid on his village, Umm al-Hiran, in the south of present-day Israel on 18 January.

The police were there to carry out demolition orders against 15 homes in the Palestinian Bedouin village, which the Israeli government aims to evacuate in order to establish a Jewish settlement in its place.

Jan 21 06:50

Trump and Israel

Trump started off his campaign signaling he would be “neutral” on the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, but he has shifted considerably in recent weeks toward the views of the staunchest Zionists. This has included tapping a man considered to be to the right of conservative Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as U.S. ambassador to Israel, choosing another pro-settlement Republican as his international business adviser, welcoming the heretofore marginalized Israeli ambassador into the bosom of his inner circle in Washington, and, just recently, appointing his son-in-law, who is reportedly behind bringing all these players into the fold, as a senior adviser.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The fundamental reality here is that the government of Israel has never seen a two-state solution satisfactory to either its territorial, or geopolitical, ambitions.

So what we are seeing now is a brisk Israeli expropriation of lands in the East Bank and West Jerusalem, and the way these settlements have been placed has made it impossible for there to be a contiguous Palestinian state.

The proposal of moving the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem will inflame tensions immeasurably, and demonstrate to all the other countries in the region, that the US government cannot ever be considered an "honest broker" of peace in the region again.

I would like to sincerely hope that this is not President Trump's intention.

But it appears that Netanyahu is counting on this move, as evidenced by this story in haaretz.com:

Netanyahu briefed about potential violent scenarios if the US government moves its embassy to Jerusalem

Broken promises: A history of UN resolutions and West Bank Settlements

At the end of last year, the United Nations Security Council passed a resolution condemning Israel's settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. The resolution was particularly noteworthy due to the United States taking the unusual decision to abstain on the resolution, allowing it to pass rather than vetoing. But will the new resolution make a difference to the peace process and Israel’s policy of settlement expansion?

Since Israel’s occupation of the West Bank, Gaza, East Jerusalem and the Golan Heights, the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) has remained clear that settlements are illegal and an obstruction to a peaceful resolution. Here, we take a look back at the history of UNSC resolutions regarding Israeli settlement activity and expansion onto Palestinian land, and see how this has shaped the conflict between Israel-Palestine and plans for peace.

Obama: 'Moment may be passing' for two-state solution

The prospects for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict are waning because of growing Israeli settlement of the West Bank, Barack Obama has said in his final press conference as US president.

Obama said on Wednesday that his administration did not block a UN resolution on Israeli settlement activity last month because it felt a two-state solution was the only option for peace.

"The goal of the resolution was to simply say that the ... growth of the settlements are creating a reality on the ground that increasingly will make a two-state solution impossible," he said.

"It was important for us to send a signal, a wakeup call that this moment may be passing."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to President Obama; the moment you are describing never, ever existed for the Israeli government; to believe that it ever did demonstrates an absolutely delusional grasp of the existing facts on the ground.

The placement of these Jewish-only settlements means that there is no possibility for a contiguous Palestinian state to exist, ever, and the placement of these settlements was engineered to insure that would be the case.

“The situation is getting unbearable. We have electricity for only three hours a day in this freezing season,” the university student told The Electronic Intifada. “We are used to having the electricity off, but not for this long.”

Imagine that the boy is likely soon to be bundled into the back of a military van and taken for interrogation without his parents or a lawyer present, or even knowing where he is.

Abbas wants Russia's help in preventing relocation of US embassy in Israel

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has forwarded a letter to Russian leader Vladimir Putin asking Moscow to influence Washington so that the US embassy in Israel is not moved to Jerusalem, Saeb Erekat, Secretary General of the Palestine Liberation Organization, told reporters on Friday. "We have received information on the latest statement of [US President-elect] Donald Trump in which he said that his administration planned to move the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem," Erekat said. "In the letter, which I have handed over [to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov] today, we ask Russia to take steps so that the United States do mot move its embassy to Jerusalem." Donald Trump said during his election campaign that if he was elected president, he would take steps to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. The Jerusalem Embassy Act initiating the relocation of the US embassy to Jerusalem was passed by the US Congress in 1995.

Yesterday, January 5, the US House put on a shameful display of groveling to Israel, a display even more noxious than their usual butt-kissing of the world’s #1 terror state, Israel, voting to pass HR 11.

The House measure, which is non-binding, calls for the UN resolution “to be repealed or fundamentally altered so that… it is no longer one-sided and anti-Israel” and allows all final status issues toward a two-state solution to be resolved through direct bilateral negotiation.

It also demands that the United States ensures that no action be taken at the Paris Conference on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict scheduled for January 15, that would impose an agreement on the two sides.

Last month, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued two public statements. When the United Nations Security Council passed a resolution criticizing settlements, Netanyahu attacked it for not condemning Syria. When Secretary of State John Kerry defended the Obama administration’s decision to let the resolution pass, Netanyahu attacked him for not sufficiently condemning the Palestinians.

In both responses, the Israeli leader illustrated George Orwell’s famous insight: The abuse of human beings starts with the abuse of language.

The footage garnered sharp domestic and international criticism, leading to an investigation and indictment of the soldier. The act was a direct consequence of the public view, fueled by vitriolic politicians, that shooting to kill is legitimate whenever a Palestinian attacks or attempts to attack an Israeli.

Circle January 15th: 70 Nations Will Gather In Paris To Discuss The Creation Of A Palestinian State

On January 15th, representatives from 70 different countries will gather in Paris, France for an unprecedented global conference. The stated goal of this conference is to promote a “two-state solution” as the way that lasting peace will be brought to the Middle East. In Israel, there is a tremendous amount of concern that whatever is agreed upon at this conference will immediately be used as the basis for a UN Security Council resolution that would permanently divide the land of Israel and create a Palestinian state. But things would have to move very rapidly in order for that to happen, because Barack Obama’s time in the White House comes to an end on January 20th, and Donald Trump has already made it exceedingly clear that he would never support such a resolution.

10 Things Palestinians Can’t Do Because Of The Israeli Occupation

The Israeli government and some U.S. politicians are attacking the Obama administration for permitting a recent U.N. Security Council resolution that condemns Israeli settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories. Secretary of State John Kerry faced further ire on Wednesday after saying the settlements threaten prospects for peace in the region.

Yet part of the reason the administration decided to speak out forcefully about the settlements is because they are such a key feature of Israel’s occupation ? now approaching its 50th year. The occupation affects almost every aspect of Palestinians’ lives in the West Bank, the Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem.

Israel hopes that the outgoing Obama Administration will prevent any more damage being done to Israel at the UN in its waning days. I wish I could be comforted by the promise that the US says we will not bring any more resolutions to the UN. That's what they said about the previous resolution. We have it on absolutely incontestable evidence that the United States organized, advanced and brought this resolution to the United Nations Security Council.

Hot Off The Press - Britain Pulled the Strings Behind Anti Settlement Resolution

Ten days ago, pretty much out of the blue, British PM Theresa May announced that she decided to accept the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of antisemitism and to integrate it into British law. Jews in Britain and all over the world were over the moon. Tonight we learn that May’s declaration was a preemptive move. It was Britain rather than the USA that had been pulling the strings behind the anti Israel Security Council resolution.

Haaretz reports tonight that it was actually the Brits that “encouraged New Zealand to continue pushing for a vote even without Egyptian support.” Israeli diplomats say that from information that reached the Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem, British legal figures and diplomats had been working directly with the Palestinians on the wording of the resolution even before it was distributed by Egypt the first time on Wednesday evening.

Accusations by the Israeli ambassador that the US was behind the UN resolution condemning Israeli settlements are “just not true,” the US State Department said. Israel has blamed Washington for not vetoing the resolution.

“We reject the notion that the US was the driving force behind this resolution,” State Department spokesman Mark Toner told reporters at the daily press briefing Tuesday. “That’s just not true.”

Israel to Build in Jerusalem, Mulls More Steps Against UN

Israel is pushing ahead with building plans in areas the UN Security Council recently declared as occupied Palestinian territory and weighing new steps against UN agencies as the censure from the international body roils domestic politics.

The Jerusalem municipal planning committee on Wednesday is set to review requests to build hundreds of apartments in East Jerusalem. That would contradict the terms of Resolution 2334, which demands that Israel halt all building in areas it won in the 1967 Middle East war and brands construction there illegal.

UN Resolution 2334 Is good For Israel

For once, the USA decided to join the rest of humanity and didn’t veto the resolution.

The Jewish State and its lobbies are people like no other. 14 out of 15 members of the UNSC voted against Israel, the US abstained. In the most clear terms, the UNSC denounced the Jewish state’s treatment of the Palestinian people. If Israel would be an ordinary state, as Zionism initially promised, it would take some time to reflect on the resolution and consider the necessary measures to amend its public image. But as one would expect, the Jewish State did the complete opposite. It took the path of the bully and decided to punish the world.

True, Cairo acted under pressure from Israel and to avoid alienating US President-elect Donald Trump. But that's not the point here. The point is, Cairo knew from day one that there would be pressure from Washington and Tel Aviv, particularly from Trump. Cairo also knew that veto by Washington was in the offing, but still went ahead with the plan. Perhaps, this was to get some incentives from Washington. Again, that's not important at all.

The vast majority of Jews actually want to be conflated with Israel. World Jewry supports Israel institutionally. Pickles and May who are subject to constant Jewish lobbying know it very well.

So if Israel is wrong for being a racially exclusive society, the Jewish anti Zionists are at least as bad as the Jewish State.

But the real issue is slightly different. By now we, and I mean all of us, except a few oligarchs, are all Palestinians. We are subject to the dirty games inflicted on us by the likes of Goldman Sachs, Soros, Saban, Adelson, and a few others. By now we are all subject to the tyranny of correctness that stops us from shouting out, loudly, that troubling truth which we all see.
