UK Prime Minister Theresa May renews vow of servility to Israel

Two weeks to the day after the deputy leader of Britain’s Labour Party, Tom Watson, assured Zionist lobbyists of his complete and unconditional subservience to Israel, his prime minister, Theresa May, has gone even further.

Addressing more than 800 guests of the Zionist lobby group, Conservative Friends of Israel (CFI), she delivered what the Israeli news website Ynet described as “a staunchly pro-Israel speech… during which she declared her government’s unwavering support for Israel” and “proclaimed her unequivocal opposition to boycotts” of the apartheid state... >>

Will Israeli soldier get away with videotaped killing of teen?

An Israeli soldier facing trial for the killing of an unarmed Palestinian teenager that was shown on TV screens around the world may now get away with a slap on the wrist.

Israeli Border Police combatant Ben Dery is charged with manslaughter in the slaying of 17-year-old Nadim Nuwara on 15 May 2014 – Nakba Day, when Palestinians commemorate their 1948 ethnic cleansing from much of their homeland.

But Israeli media are reporting that the manslaughter charge may now be dropped.

Israeli forces kill another Palestinian teen at checkpoint

Israeli forces shot and killed a Palestinian youth at a checkpoint in the northern occupied West Bank on Thursday.

“The suspect did not heed their call to stop, continued to move in their direction and at one point whipped out a knife and began running towards them. The forces opened fire at the terrorist,” an Israeli police spokesperson told media. No Israelis were reported injured.

A short video clip taken from a passing car appears to show the youth standing still, with his arms by his side, as a group of soldiers standing several feet away point their guns at him:

New York blacklist revives McCarthy tactics

The state of New York has released a blacklist of companies that it says support the Palestinian-led boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) campaign.

Meanwhile, the author of a controversial definition of anti-Semitism that includes criticism of Israel is urging the US Congress not to enshrine the definition into law, saying it would be unconstitutional and harmful to free speech on campuses.

In June, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed an executive order calling for the state to cut financial ties with institutions that boycott Israel.

Dutch reject calls to cease funding Palestinian groups

The Dutch government has rejected calls to cease funding organizations that advocate a boycott of Israel.

In June this year, NGO Monitor – a lobby group with close ties to the Israeli political and military establishments claimed it had scored a significant victory in the Netherlands.

NGO Monitor was referring to a decision made by the Dutch parliament that a review should be undertaken of the country’s aid to organizations supporting the Palestinian-led boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement. According to NGO Monitor, the parliament’s vote was the result of briefings that the lobby group had provided on how “radical” activists were engaged in the “demonization” of Israel.

The government in The Hague has now made it clear, however, that it will not bar BDS advocates from receiving aid.

Israel blocks Gaza women from breast cancer treatment

After undergoing surgery for breast cancer last year, Abu Qamar requires further treatment which she has not been able to receive in Gaza. She has asked Israel for permission to travel. Her applications have so far been rejected. Aged 40, she has six children, the youngest of whom is still a baby.

Her plight is shared by many others in Gaza. Estimates from the local health ministry indicate that several hundred women with breast cancer have been obstructed from traveling by Israel so far this year.

Canada’s Greens stand up to pro-Israel bullies

The Israel lobby has suffered an epic fail in Canada. An attempt at persuading the country’s Green Party to drop its support for the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement galvanized many activists.

Zionism; Humanity’s Mortal Enemy

Zionism is a brutal ethnic-cleansing racist colonial ideology developed in 1896 by Theodore Herzl; an Austrian Jew. Its main goal is the establishment of the Greater Israel Project in the heart of the Arab World, extending from the Nile River in Egypt to the Euphrates River in Iraq, as a Jewish-only homeland for what is termed the “Jewish People”.

Kerry tells Israeli right: You're deliberately sabotaging peace process

US Secretary of State John Kerry on Sunday accused right-wing Israelis of deliberately thwarting efforts to broker a peace deal with the Palestinians.

In unusually stark terms, Washington's top diplomat warned that Israeli settlement building was undermining any hope of an agreement to allow two states to live side-by-side.

At the Saban Forum, an annual gathering of senior Israeli and US policymakers, Kerry said some members of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government had made "profoundly disturbing" statements.

"And more than 50 percent of the ministers in the current government have publicly stated they are opposed to a Palestinian state and that there will be no Palestinian state," he said.

‘ONLY HE TO WHOM THE LAND DOESN’T BELONG TO IS CAPABLE OF BURNING IT’

This raises the question of “why is the Jewish state burning?” The majority of the hundreds of millions of trees planted since the Nakba by the Jewish National Fund, are conifers and particularly pines. The trees were planted for the benefit of the Jewish European immigrant ethnic cleansers so as to enable them to feel at home in a land for which they had no love, but simply wanted to possess.

Since Biblical times, trees planted in Palestine were suited for the dry land – such as olive trees – which were vital for the livelihood of Palestinian farmers and their families. Other trees included carob, mulberry, and low oaks which were all ecologically suitable vegetation. Such trees were and are still being systematically destroyed by the Zionist intruders to deprive the Palestinians of their livelihood.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Basically, Israel destroyed the indigenous flora to transplant trees from Europe, to make transplanted European Jews feel more at home. Those trees dried up in the desert climate, creating a monstrous fire hazard nobody recognized.

Trump and the Jews - An Analysis by Lawrence Davidson

As problematic as it is, the ascendency of Donald Trump gives the American Jews a second chance to make the right choice, to join with their natural allies and fight for the equal rights of all groups. U.S. Jews should think long and hard about this, for it may well be that their second chance will also be their last chance.

#InPalestine ~~ ALARM CLOCKS AND PHONE APPS CAN REPLACE THE CALL TO PRAYER

Prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared his support this month for the so-called “muezzin bill”, claiming it was urgently needed to stop the dawn call to prayer from mosques ruining the Israeli public’s sleep. A vote in the parliament is due this week. The use of loudspeakers by muezzins was unnecessarily disruptive, Mr Netanyahu argued, in an age of alarm clocks and phone apps.

Blaming Palestinians for fires part of Netanyahu’s “strategy of incitement”

Palestinians and Palestinian citizens of Israel are being blamed for recent wildfires as part of the Israeli government’s deliberate strategy of incitement, a leading rights group has said.

“Senior Israeli government officials – including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu – continue to make inflammatory statements that lay much of the blame for the recent tragic fires in the Haifa and Jerusalem areas on Palestinian citizens of Israel,” Adalah, a legal advocacy group that defends the rights of Palestinians in the country, told The Electronic Intifada.

Jimmy Carter: America Must Recognize Palestine

I am convinced that the United States can still shape the future of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict before a change in presidents, but time is very short. The simple but vital step this administration must take before its term expires on Jan. 20 is to grant American diplomatic recognition to the state of Palestine, as 137 countries have already done, and help it achieve full United Nations membership.

BREAKING THE SILENCE ON ISRAELI RACISM

When a government removes its Bedouin citizens from their home in order to settle its own Jewish citizens in their stead, this is racist dealing. Dispossessing people of their land in order to plant a forest on that same land is inhuman. Had these Bedouins been Jewish settlers, the government certainly would not evict them before finding an alternative dwelling for them that would suit their demands.

By its own acts the government of Israel proves that the UN’s outrageous ruling was not erroneous. Citizens of Israel who do not protest this extreme injustice in fact support the government in its racist policy.

Israeli PM Netanyahu thanks Palestinian Authority leader Abbas for helping out with fires

Israel’s hardline Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has called Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to thank him for the help in dozing fires in Israel and sheltering people who had to flee the disaster.

In the Saturday evening call, Netanyahu expressed gratitude for the eight fire trucks and 40 firefighters the Palestinian Authority sent to fight the Israeli fires, the Times of Israel reported citing a statement released by the PM’s office. He also said he appreciated the on-the-ground cooperation between Jews and Arabs, who opened their homes for those affected by the fires.

Why Israel is Burning?

Israel’s rural landscape is saturated with pine trees. These trees are new to the region. The pine trees were introduced to the Palestinians landscape in the early 1930s by the Jewish National Fund (JNF) in an attempt to ‘reclaim the land’ . By 1935, JNF had planted 1.7 million trees over a total area of 1,750 acres. Over fifty years, the JNF planted over 260 million trees largely on confiscated Palestinian land. It did it all in a desperate attempt to hide the ruins of the ethnically cleansed Palestinian villages and their history.

Along the years the JNF performed a crude attempt to eliminate Palestinian civilisation and past but it also tried to make Palestine look like Europe. The Palestinian natural forest was eradicated. Similarly the olive trees were uprooted. The pine trees took their place. On the southern part of mount Carmel the Israelis named an area as ‘Little Switzerland’. By now, there is not much left of “Little Switzerland.”

Pakcoins for Palestinians Project

I have created this thread to start a project to get Pakcoins into the hands(digital wallets) of Palestinians. I have several reasons for starting this endeavor. The main ones are to educate Palestinians, especially those living in the Gaza Strip about digital currencies. One of the other major reasons is that this effort will hopefully lead to greater use of Pakcoin and digital currencies among Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank which will enable them to more easily resist the Israeli economic pressure against them...

The Virginia-based company posted the recall on its website, and on social media on Sunday, saying it was issuing the product recall “out of an abundance of caution.”

The notice said: “We are disappointed to share the news of a voluntary recall with the Sabra community today. We’re recalling this product out of an abundance of caution after finding Listeria Monocytognes at the manufacturing facility, but not in tested finished product.”

“We want to reassure our consumers that our procedures include extensive finished product testing, and no products tested positive for contaminants. We are taking action because consumer safety is a top priority,” the notice also said.

Trump was Grand Marshallof New York City’s 2004 Salute to Israel Parade and has contributed to predominantly Jewish charities.

But facing a backlash, he quickly pivoted, promising Netanyahu he would recognize Jerusalem as the “undivided capital of the State of Israel,” and actively encouraging Israel to continue building colonial settlements in the occupied West Bank.

Israel’s ban on the Muslim call to prayer in Jerusalem is the tip of the iceberg

Something is in the air in Jerusalem and if Israel has its way it soon won’t be; the Muslim call to prayer — the adhaan — is under threat. The state which is built upon the ethnic cleansing of the majority of the indigenous Palestinian people is inching its way towards banning the call for prayer, which was probably first heard in Jerusalem in 637 AD.

Despicable Balfour: A Story of Betrayal - Part 1

November 2 marks the centenary of the Balfour Declaration of 1917, which began the still-ongoing colonisation of Palestine and sowed the seeds of an endless nightmare for the Palestinian people, both those who were forced to flee at gunpoint and those who have managed to remain in the shredded remains of their homeland under Israel's brutal military occupation.

Top 10 reasons to be a holocaust denier, by Dr. Kevin Barrett

Let me repeat: I don’t deny anything. I just support open debate. So, using ADL/B’nai Brith nomenclature, I guess that makes me (in their eyes) a “holocaust denier.”

Since I had better make the best of it, here is a list of the most wonderful things about being a “holocaust denier.”

Top 10 Reasons to Be a Holocaust Denier
10) Incessantly bombarded with holocaust memorials, holocaust museums, and holocaust references in popular culture, you won’t have to get angry and gloomy and depressed and feel guilty (if you are not a Jew) or paranoid (if you are a Jew) but instead can shrug your shoulders and say, “It probably wasn’t quite THAT bad” and go about your business in a normal frame of mind. The cumulative effect of missing out on all that depression, anger, and guilt will add at least ten years to your life expectancy.

Will ICC see through Israel’s sham justice?

For decades, Israel’s crimes against Palestinians living under its military occupation were subject to little more oversight than that of public opinion. This may soon change, and Israel is putting on a show of applying the law in order to evade accountability.

Nearly two years ago, the Palestinian Authority, with non-member state status at the United Nations, ratified the Rome Statute, giving it access to the International Criminal Court.

With war crimes files now formally submitted, for the first time Israel may be held accountable outside its own courts, thus posing a test of the ICC’s mandate “to combat impunity and prevent the recurrence of violence.”

BDS Changed its Goal Statement Once Again

When the call for Boycott, Divestment & Sanctions of Israeli goods was established in 2005 in Ramallah its first demand was for Israel to:

“End[ing] its occupation and colonization of all Arab lands and dismantl[ing] the Wall” (http://www.bdsmovement.net/call)

This call didn’t leave room for interpretation. Back in 2005, the BDS movement disputed the legitimacy of the Jewish State.

But in 2010, its primary goal was changed significantly into:

“Ending its occupation and colonization of all Arab lands occupied in June 1967 and dismantling the Wall.”

This change didn’t leave much room for a doubt. The BDS has become an instrument to legitimise the Jewish State within its pre 1967 borders.

“BDS could turn from something “untouchable by European and American officials and liberal academics and activists – who understood its ultimate goal as one that not only refuses to guarantee the survival of Israel as a racist state, but also aims specifically to dismantle all its racist structures – to something increasingly safe to adopt by most of them, as it now can be used to secure Israel’s survival.”

A POEM OF RESISTANCE FROM AND FOR PALESTINE

During travels, one gets little sleep and much time to catch-up on
emails, read, grade student papers, and even to think and reflect.
Last week in Palestine was very hectic, harvest of olives, teachings,
meeting with bureaucrats, research, mentoring students, receiving many
international and local delegations plus many local ones including
students from 4 schools) and much thus meaning a second night with
little sleep. We also lost a close friend of us and of Palestine:
Vincenzo Tradardi of Parma. We will really miss him. Other setbacks
happen daily but we are gratified by the goodness of people around us.
Volunteers, staff, students, and dedicated activists for peace and
justice. Most are struggling to grow amid the madness. I really do not
like to travel and I already miss Palestine where I feel much more
alive than anywhere else on earth. The poem below is written in
reflection.

ZION’S LATEST WAR WITH THE WORLD

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu expressed especially harsh words yesterday, dubbing the document submitted by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) as “delusional.” The group failed to mention by name the Temple Mount, a sacred site in Judaism believed to be located inside of the walls of the Noble Sanctuary, a religious plaza in the Old City that shelters the al-Aqsa mosque.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is already ample evidence to suggest that the Old Testament is not an historical document but a religious one. Zahi Hawas, the famed archaeologist, has come to the conclusion that the flight from Egypt actually happened to the Hyksos, not the Hebrews, and Pharaoh gave chase simply because the Hyksos were killing and looting everywhere they went.

But just as the ancient Hebrews copied the story of the great flood from the Epic of Gilgamesh, they appear to have lifted the exodus from the Hyksos. The Bible is not science, it is the collected stories of a primitive tribal people telling each other how important they are. And like fishermen talking about the one that got away, or Ramses with his temple carvings of the did-not-really-happen victory over the Hittites at Kadesh, the writers of the ancient testaments assumed that the people they were telling stories to had no way to verify the claims for themselves. So "embellishment" was a low-risk activity. The writers of the ancient texts were probably not thinking much further into the future than the guys who pen the "Celebrity dates space alien" stories you see at supermarket checkout lines. The fact that the celebrity is a real person does not prove the space alien exists. It's just a story.

The fact is that Egypt (along with Iraq, Iran, Syria, etc.) have vast archaeological treasures from which their ancient histories are confirmed. For the stories told the situation is quite different. The story of ancient Israel has no archaeological support for it, and indeed the available archaeology suggests the stories are just that; stories. Israel, while rich in antiquities, is almost totally devoid of artifacts from this supposedly glorious time in her history. The existence of the fabled First Temple was supported with just two artifacts, a carved staff ornament in the shape of a pomegranate and the Jehoash tablet. Both of these artifacts have been exposed as frauds. We are told that once there was a magnificent temple on that hill, but it "all went away."

But even Israeli archaeologists are now admitting that the available evidence indicates that the first Temple was a very small shrine roughly 1/3 mile south southwest of the Dome of the Rock, and not actually part of the current platform, which is actually the remains of a Roman Fort dating from Herod's time.

PALESTINIAN UNIVERSITIES FIGHTING A BATTLE ON TWO FRONTS

Palestinian universities are fighting an uphill battle on two fronts, one being the Israeli military occupation, and more recently, the other being the Palestinian government. Although each poses two very different sets of challenges, one outcome is clear. If immediate and decisive intervention is not forthcoming, the structural damage that will set back entire generations of Palestinian students will haunt Palestine’s developmental capabilities for many years to come. That is, if the damage has not already been inflicted.

Roger Waters Eviscerates 'Racist, Sexist Pig' Trump & Urges Israel 'To End Occupation' at Desert Trip

But the political proselytizing wasn't all Trump-related. At the very end of his set, Waters offered up what was truly the riskiest moment of the entire Desert Trip weekend. "It's rare somebody like me gets a platform like this, so I'm going to use it," he said. After reading a poem he wrote in 2004 after George W. Bush was re-elected, Waters voiced solidarity with college students protesting for Palestine and urged people to support the controversial BDS Movement, saying, "I encourage the government in Israel to end the occupation." Slamming Trump to an audience of erstwhile hippies is preaching to the choir -- even if you are a classic rock-loving conservative, you're used to hearing musicians rail against Republicans.
