Blitzkrieg: When Air Defense Means Aggression

I March, 2017, Israel launched a series of air assaults on Syria. One attack near the ancient city of Palmyra brought about a series of events we will deal with today. The implications for modern warfare not only change the rules as we know them but expose hypocrisy at the heart of NATO policy.

This Israeli attack which may have brought about the downing of an IAF F15E aircraft by Syrian air defense missiles was allegedly intended, according to Israel, to stop Hezbollah from transferring advanced weapons to Lebanon. Those weapons would be used to resist an expected Israeli assault on that nation or to be used to retaliate against expected Israeli bombing of Beirut residential neighborhoods as seen during the 2006 war.

One issue, of course, is that there were no Hezbollah units within more than a hundred miles of Palmyra, instead Israel was, as has been the case over and over, flying air support for ISIS fighters under attack by the Syrian Army and its Russian allies.

Nikki Haley Humiliates America, Grovels Before Israel At AIPAC Summit

By Brandon Turbeville

In an unparalleled display of fealty and subservience, the United States’ Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, sat before an AIPAC (American-Israeli Political Action Committee) and proclaimed all the horrors visited upon the Zionist settler state under the Obama administration as well as all the things the United States has done to support Israel since Trump came to power. In other words, she set up a perfect representation of the narrative that has existed all along; i.e. despite the fact that the Obama administration was an unwavering supporter of Israel, giving historical amounts of money and assistance, pledging loyalty to the colony, and actively helping to destroy Israel’s self-made enemies, Obama is still considered a “weak” supporter of Israel...

ADL: JARED KUSHNER A GROWING TARGET OF ONLINE ANTISEMITISM

Series of antisemitic tweets claim that Kushner is manipulating Trump and leading the United States into war for Israel’s benefit.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Because of course if Kushner wasn't Jewish, nobody would care that he urged on this attack on Syria based on lies, right? Of course right!

If the ADL is playing the anti-Semite card, it means the online criticism of Kushner has hit a nerve!

Israeli Soldiers Abduct A Legislator And A Hamas Spokesperson, From Their Homes In Ramallah

Israeli soldiers abducted, on Wednesday at dawn, a Palestinian legislator, who is originally from Jerusalem, and a Hamas spokesperson, after storming their homes, in Ramallah, in central West Bank. One Palestinian was also abducted in Hebron.

The Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) said the soldiers abducted legislator Ahmad Attoun, and Hamas spokesperson in the West Bank, Fayez Abu Warda, after violently searching and ransacking their homes, and took them to an unknown destination.

Elliott Abrams: Step one is getting rid of Steve Bannon

If you are wondering why disaffected rightwingers believe in Jewish conspiracies and become raging anti-Semites, look no further than this Elliot Abrams interview:

“Step one, says Elliott Abrams: Get rid of Steve Bannon.

“He’s not a good influence on the president,” Abrams, no man to mince words, tells me. Having the White House’s chief political strategist on the National Security Council “was a terrible mistake,” and booting him was a good start to what needs to happen. A giant smile spreads across his face at the thought of Bannon being forced out of the White House completely. …

As for his own future with Trump, Abrams teased that it may still be in front of him, depending on how things shape up with Bannon and Kushner, the latter of whom he kept going out of his way to praise.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It must be remembered that Bannon was the only Trump adviser to say the cruise missile attack on Syria was a bad idea.

Activists rebrand Brand Israel conference as ‘Brand Apartheid’

Students disrupted a Brand Israel conference at New York University, holding a silent protest while former Israeli ambassador Ido Aharoni closed the daylong forum last Friday with a summary of branding techniques applicable to the Jewish state.

With signs reading “Israel’s Brand: Stolen Land” and “Brand Apartheid,” the five NYU undergraduate students shuffled into the conference room and sat close to the front of the room, waiting for keynote speaker Aharoni to begin his closeout of NYU’s Places As Brands Conference before unfurling their signs.

The room was dismayed by the protest but the students remained steadfast, keeping their signs held high throughout Aharoni’s talk, despite attempts by a conference organizer to remove them.

FLASHBACK - Israeli 1982 Plan for Mideast Empire Aided by ISIS

Recently, the German-language website “National Journal” illustrated the surprising, key role the Islamic State (IS), also known as ISIS, plays in the success of this Zionist quest for regional domination—although ostensibly Israel’s enemy.

The Yinon Plan stated that Iraq was then the greatest obstacle to an Israeli Middle Eastern empire and control of the area’s wealth of natural resources. The first stage was to weaken both Iran—an Israeli ally under the shah—and Iraq through war against each other. After this, the American invasion in 2003 was to lead to the division of Iraq into three smaller, ethno-religious states operated by Sunni and Shiite Muslims in the middle and south, and a new Kurdistan in the north.

ISIS is the means by which Israel and the United States—which established, trained and supplied the terrorist organization—have nearly succeeded in the tripartition.

Guess Who’s in Charge of Guarding U.S. Nuclear Power & Weapon Sites?

American supporters of Israel were delighted to learn that an Israeli company, Magal Security Systems, owned in part by the government of Israel, is in charge of security for the most sensitive nuclear power and weapons storage facilities in the United States.

The largest perimeter security company in the world, Magal started out as a division of Israeli Aircraft Industries (IAI), which was owned in part by the government of Israel. In recent years, however, Magal evolved into a publicly traded company, although IAI (and thus the government of Israel) still holds a substantial share in the highly successful firm.

What this means is that the government of Israel will have control over the security of America’s nuclear weapons.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Which strikes me as a really stupid idea given the history of the NUMEC scandal!

Trump, Saudi Arabia and the War on Yemen

On April 2nd, The Yemen News Agency (SABA) reported that US-Saudi war planes struck several targets including private and public properties across several provinces in Yemen:

The US-Saudi aggression war planes continued heinous strikes against citizens, causing heavy damage to private and public properties in several provinces over the past hours, a military official told Saba on Sunday. The warplanes waged 12 strikes on Haradh district of Hajja province and three other strikes on Serwah district of Mareb province, as well waged six raids on Kamaran island in Hodeida province

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What the heck has Iran done, in light of the reality it has not started a war in over 200 years?!?

Iran is not the threat in the Middle East; Israel and Saudi Arabia are the threats to the region, period, end of discussion.

That the US government is still complicit in Saudi war crimes in Yemen, after the "regime change" which brought us President Trump, confounds and disappoints me more than I can articulate.

The Saudis are slaughtering civilians; starving children to death through malnutrition, because of the blockade of Yemeni ports; and using depleted uranium weapons on the Yemeni population, which is leading to massive spikes in cancers, still births, and horrific deformities in newborn children.

But apparently, in the mind of President Trump, some war crimes (like the chemical attack in Syria) are more equal than others, like those I have mentioned above.

Wag The Dog — How Al Qaeda Played Donald Trump And The American Media

Normally, such major policy change could only be explained by a new reality driven by verifiable facts. The alleged chemical weapons attack against Khan Sheikhoun was not a new reality; chemical attacks had been occurring inside Syria on a regular basis, despite the international effort to disarm Syria’s chemical weapons capability undertaken in 2013 that played a central role in forestalling American military action at that time. International investigations of these attacks produced mixed results, with some being attributed to the Syrian government (something the Syrian government vehemently denies), and the majority being attributed to anti-regime fighters, in particular those affiliated with Al Nusra Front, an Al Qaeda affiliate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: President Trump went off absolutely half-cocked, with this bombing run on a Syrian military base, because he had no definitive evidence as to who actually perpetrated this chemical poisoning in Syria.

And now, his national security advisor, Mc Masters is attempting to sell him on a pre-emptive full-on invasion of Syria, which will most likely mean war with Russia.

This is about as insane as any foreign policy suggestion as any I have heard over the years, and ultimately, cui bono?!? Who benefits?!?

If the US and Russia blow each other to bloody bits, it will be Israel who will be the benefactor of such mutual destruction, because it will leave Israel in control of all the Middle East's oil.

So, as is the mantra at WRH, don't panic; please plan.

Trump's National Security Advisor Planning 'Full-Scale War' in Syria

According to independent journalist Mike Cernovich, National Security Advisor H. R. McMaster is trying to get Trump to sign off on a plan that would put 150,000 US troops on the ground in Syria.

According to Cernovich:

Current National Security Adviser Herbert Raymond “H. R.” McMaster is manipulating intelligence reports given to President Donald Trump, Cernovich Media can now report. McMaster is plotting how to sell a massive ground war in Syria to President Trump with the help of disgraced former CIA director and convicted criminal David Petraeus, who mishandled classified information by sharing documents with his mistress.

As NSA, McMaster’s job is to synthesize intelligence reports from all other agencies. President Trump is being given an inaccurate picture of the situation in Syria, as McMaster is seeking to involve the U.S. in a full scale war in Syria.

The McMaster-Petraeus plan calls for 150,000 American ground troops in Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but has this gentleman become foaming-at-the- mouth, barking dog mad, to make such a suggestion?!?

I think the big thing McMaster needs to explain to the American people, who, most likely will see their sons and daughters drafted, slaughtered, and maimed for life, as the result of such an invasion is, how he expects Putin's government to respond to such an invasion of Syria?!?

I am not a betting woman, but were I, I would not bet that Putin and the Russian Duma will, thank you very much, sit quietly, humming "Kumbya", and do nothing, should such a US invasion happen.

US Vows to Keep Pressure on Syria as Hawks Urge More Attacks

Following Thursday’s missile attacks against Syria, the Trump Administration has vowed to keep the pressure up against the Syrian government, though exactly what that means means uncertain, with officials sending mixed signals on whether they’re going to militarily impose regime change on Syria or not.

In the meantime, they can expect to hear non-stop heckling from various hawks, demanding more attacks and more aggression as a matter of course, and insisting anything short of that would be taken as a sign of weakness by the international community.

And where there is hawkish sentiment to be expressed, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R – SC) won’t be far behind. Graham today insisted that by continuing to carry out airstrikes from the base the United States attacked, Syria was telling President Trump “F you.” He went on to demand 5,000 to 6,000 US ground troops be sent to Syria, both to wipe out ISIS and then to impose regime change therein.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word here, please.

Is there even a plan here, post-bombing, and punishing the wrong people for what they did hot do?!?

Because if there is not a plan, there really needs to be an adult in the room, in the bowels of power in DC, who understands all the ramifications of the bombing, and where, reasonably, the US can (and morally, should) go from here.

The US military has just bombed the assets of a sovereign nation, against which it has not declared war, and this has been done through executive order only, when Congress is Constitutionally given the power to declare war.

And Senator Graham, where are these 5,000 to 7,000 troops you are insisting Trump send to Syria, going to come from, please?!?

The US military is already overstretched to the max, in terms of troop strength, so President Trump would have to pull them from somewhere else, to deploy them inside Syria.

Senator Graham knows that such a move will most probably mean war with Russia, but absolutely doesn't give a damn about the price in blood and money which will have to be spent to get such a war going.

One has to wonder just how much of Senator Graham's portfolio is invested in the military/industrial complex.

Senator Lindsey Graham's net worth is $3 million dollars

Such a war would almost immediately necessitate the reintroduction of a military draft.

Is there a Donald Trump-George Soros Connection!!!

But were you also aware that George and Donald have been partners more than once? These partnerships show the George Soros we are familiar with, illegal activities paid with the almighty dollar, but we also find that Donald played the game exactly the same, and it cost him financially.

It all started with a simple loan between billionaires, but one is known as an avid socialist who is out to destroy the American way of life, while the other, well the other is following in the socialistic perspective, and has partnered with George Soros when he was in need of money. In 2004, George Soros made a $160 million loan to Donald Trump to build Trump Tower in Chicago. The $160 million Soros investment came in the form of a so-called “mezzanine loan.” (A mezzanine loan is like a second mortgage that charges a higher interest rate than the initial construction loan.)

Poodle Trump Runs With Dogs of War

So the brash, big-mouth tycoon in the White House with an outsized ego has finally unleashed the dogs of war in Syria.

Invoking God and the suffering of “little babies”, the supposed US Commander-in-Chief Donald Trump ordered the bombing of Syria with cruise missiles launched from warships in the Mediterranean

But the upshot is this: Trump is acting like an obedient poodle going along with the Machiavellian American power system. Invoking God and suffering babies is just a shallow moral cover for his complicity in another US criminal act – in a countless list of such crimes down through history.

To save his political skin and no doubt lucrative future business opportunities for his dynasty, Trump has donned the cap of Commander-in-Chief and is groveling before the American war machine.

He is handing over an “official” license for war in Syria that the American Deep State has been craving for years.

AN UNHINGED MCCAIN CALLS FOR MORE WAR IN SYRIA, SAYS RUSSIA IS GUILTY OF WAR CRIMES

John McCain was on Face the Nation today, getting his neocon on, discussing the next steps that needed to be taken in Syria -- dealing with Assad.

He approved of the President's strikes -- calling it a good 'first step.' But, he wants MOAR -- accusing both Syria and Russia of war crimes, in addition to blaming Assad for the rise of ISIS. You cannot make this stuff up.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Senator Mc Cain is a complete embarrassment to the people of Arizona, and I would suspect that his consistency in getting re-elected has much to do with both his value to the American Deep State, and some really intensive vote-rigging.

Mc Cain's personal fortune is well-documented.

Senator John Mc Cain's net worth is 21 million dollars

Now, that's an investment that needs to be tended to.

So I have to wonder; how much of this is invested in the military/industrial complex?!?

We will never really know,because, unfortunately, Congressional representatives do not have to put their financial affairs into a blind trust as does the President.

But frankly, Senator Mc Cain has NEVER met a potential war he didn't absolutely love!!

CHENEY, ROTHSCHILD, AND FOX NEWS’ MURDOCH VIOLATE INTERNATIONAL LAW BY DRILLING FOR OIL IN SYRIA

After concluding the flow testing phase, Afek Oil and Gas will now begin analyzing samples drawn from the Ness-2 drilling site, euphemistically dubbed “Deborah’s Well,” in the Israeli-occupied region of Syria known as the Golan Heights. New Jersey-based Genie Energy, Ltd., Afek’s parent company, claims a dubious cadre of investors cum war profiteers, including Rupert Murdoch, Dick Cheney, Lord Jacob Rothschild, James Woolsey — as well as a number of current and former U.S. politicians.

Prior testing at a separate Afek site did not meet expectations, so the company sought other “sweet spots” in the area. Analysis of samples from additional wells will be performed by Afek scientists in conjunction with “external international experts.”

To understand U.S. involvement in the quagmire in Syria, Afek’s oil exploration is of critical import.

Looks Like Donald Trump May Well Be Jewish That Would Explain A Great Deal...

In his biography The Art of the Deal, Trump lied about his grandfather's country of origin, stating it was Sweden instead of Germany. So if you think these people wouldn't lie about their ancestry, you need to explain that whopper.

Trump was brought up in Jamaica Estates, Queens, which has a large Jewish population. He went to Kew-Forest School, ditto. Its other notable alumni include Katherine Weber, Jewish, Gideon Yago, Jewish, and Hank Azaria, Jewish. Googling on “attended Kew-Forest” brings up mostly Jewish names. Trump's father was on the Board of Trustees at Kew-Forest. By the way, it is very expensive.

His genealogy is a total mirage. I'll show you where to look. First go to his mother at Geni.com

ISRAEL SEEKS BUFFER ZONE ON BORDERS WITH SYRIA

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is seeking a buffer zone against Syria, Iran and Hezbollah on the borders with Syria to be part of any future deal to end the Syrian crisis, Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported on Friday.

According to the Israeli newspaper, Netanyahu proposed this issue during meetings with American and other coalition countries.

Netanyahu wants to prevent Iran and Hezbollah from establishing a foothold and he intends to undermine future attacks against Israel, noting that he had suggested international forces to supervise his proposed buffer zone.

Last Friday, the Israeli Maariv revealed that Netanyahu sent messages to the international parties involved in the talks about Syria’s future.

FORMER CIA OFFICER: "THE INTELLIGENCE CONFIRMS THE RUSSIAN ACCOUNT ON SYRIA"

President Trump earned neocon applause for his hasty decision to attack Syria and kill about a dozen Syrians, but his rash act has all the earmarks of a “wag the dog” moment.

Just two days after news broke of an alleged poison-gas attack in northern Syria, President Trump brushed aside advice from some U.S. intelligence analysts doubting the Syrian regime’s guilt and launched a lethal retaliatory missile strike against a Syrian airfield.

But a number of intelligence sources have made contradictory assessments, saying the preponderance of evidence suggests that Al Qaeda-affiliated rebels were at fault, either by orchestrating an intentional release of a chemical agent as a provocation or by possessing containers of poison gas that ruptured during a conventional bombing raid.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This has all the earmarks of a deliberate "false flag" to me.

Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad is many things; but crazy, he isn't.

This was a week when things were going his way; his military, coupled with that of Russia, was beating the jihadists into a pulp, and Rex Tillerson publicly stated that Assad could stay in power (at least for the immediate future).

So why, in the name of heaven, would he gas his own people?!? Cui Bono?!? Who benefits?!?

He would not benefit; ISIS, however, would benefit greatly, if there was a false flag it engineered to make it appear that this had been the work of the Syrian government.

And of course, Israel indirectly benefits, because regime changing Damascus is a "step on the road" to regime changing Tehran, which is a big, huge Israeli geopolitical objective.

Making America neocon again: Trump, Putin and the Ziocons

It doesn’t take a military analyst to grasp that the American attack on a remote Syrian airfield contradicts every possible military rationale. If America really believed that Bashar Assad possessed a weapons of mass destruction stockpile and kept it in al-Shayrat airbase, launching a missile attack that could lead to the release of lethal agents into the air would be the last thing it would do. If America was determined to “neutralise” Assad’s alleged “WMD capability”, it would deploy special forces or diplomacy. No one defuses WMD with explosives, bombs or cruise missiles. It is simply unheard of.

America targeted al-Shayrat because it knew with certainty that there were no WMD in that location. It was a fireworks show. It had no military objective.

Was Israel The Reason For The U.S. Strike On Syrian Military Base?

By Brandon Turbeville

After the U.S. missile strikes in Syria, many may have wondered why the al-Sha’ayrat airfield was the target. In other words, what was so important about this airbase as opposed to all the others? The Trump administration, for their part, claimed that they targeted “chemical weapons” being stored at the base and that this particular base was where the chemical weapons originated.

Of course, in order to believe the Trump administration’s claims...

Syria: Trump May Just have Started World War III

People stand up and become disabler of the empire!

Syria is a mere square on this murderous chess board, as was Yugoslavia, Libya, Iraq, Somalia, Afghanistan, and many more to come. The purpose is not ‘winning a war’ – that would be too simple. The purpose is creating and leaving behind chaos, eternal chaos. In the case of Syria a balkanization of the country, what Clinton did to Yugoslavia. The old ‘divide to conquer’ – it still works after hundreds of years. People are still blinded to these oldest and most rudimentary of war strategies. They still fall for it; don’t notice; swallow the lies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I frankly don't think the worst is over here; if President Trump does order another strike against Syria, Russia may very well counter militarily.

Their "line in the sand" here is that Al-Assad must be allowed to stay; anything that counters that scenario will be most likely me with extreme prejudice.

Trump Delivers After Israel Calls for 'Precision Strikes' Against Syria

Don't give Donald Trump too much credit for starting World War III in Syria. We all know Trump is well versed in the "art of the deal", but as for the art of war — well, let's just say some have more experience in this field. The reality is that Israel, more than any other nation, was screaming the loudest for military action following Tuesday's "gas attack" in Syria. Tel Aviv was quite open about what it expected. As the Jerusalem Post wrote on April 4, "Amid the voices in Israel’s political establishment on Tuesday roundly condemning the Syrian chemical attack and calling on the world to actively intervene, some called for Israel to rethink its own policy toward Syria and suggested taking limited military action." Former military intelligence chief Amos Yadlin said in an interview shortly after the "gas attack" on Tuesday that Israel should "destroy the planes that carried out the chemical attack." “We are not clean from the fact that 200-300 km.

An inquiry into the background of flamboyant American entrepreneur Donald J. Trump provides some surprising insights into Trump’s path to power and influence, for the fact is that Trump’s rise to stardom came as a direct consequence of his having functioned as hardly more than a colorful front man for some very wealthy behind-the-scenes sponsors.

Everyone knows, of course, about Trump’s gambling operations and of the wide-ranging links of the gambling industry to organized crime. But the story is much bigger than that. In his own memoir, The Art of the Deal, Trump proudly described how in 1987 he bought his first casino interests when he purchased 93% of the voting stock in the Resorts International gambling concern.

London’s Daily Mail in a 2013 article confirmed the existence of an Anglo-American project endorsed by the White House (with the assistance of Qatar) to wage a chemical weapons attack on Syria and place the blame of Bashar Al Assad.

EXCLUSIVE: Act of Revenge. Observations from Syrian political commentator Afra’a Dagher

It would be completely naive to accept American allegations about the supposed chemical attacks on Idlib which occurred three days ago. It was an obvious and odious lie which America then passed on as fact, without allowing a full independent investigation. Yet America believed it, or at least pretended to believe it and their response was to launch 59 American Tomahawk missiles on Syrian airfield Al- Sha’ayrat in Homs province.

The Al-Sha’ayrat airbase was the place from which Syria fired anti-missile Sam rockets at attacking Israeli warplanes, two weeks ago. Syria downed one of the four warplanes, hit another and forced the remaining two fighter jets to quickly fly out of Syrian airspace.

This sent a strong message to Israel, a state which continues to illegally occupy Syrian territory, in addition to the decades long occupation of Palestine.

Evidence Calls Western Narrative About Syrian Chemical Attack Into Question

On April 3rd, 2017, an anti-Assad journalist tweeted that the next day he would be launching a media campaign to cover airstrikes on the Hama countryside, including the use of chemical weapons. It is not clear how the reporter was able to know that chemical weapons would be used an entire day before the attacks occurred.

Observers further noted that on April 1st, 2017, a doctor on the ground in Khan Sheikhoun, Dr. Shajul Islam, had received several shipments of gas masks in the days running up to the chemical incident. The revelations on Twitter fueled speculation that opposition figures were aware of the chemical attack days before it actually happened, contesting the narrative that the Syrian government was responsible.

But Israel lobby elements within the party had pushed hard for Livingstone, long a supporter of Palestinian rights, to be expelled outright.

Livingstone vowed in a statement to fight the suspension.

“Today’s Labour Party panel extended my suspension for another year because of my political views, not because I have done anything to harm the Labour Party,” he said.

Trump: Syria's Assad ‘crossed a lot of lines’ with gas attack

PATHETIC! Trump is a total phony. He is breaking Obama's records for lies!
WW3 here we come.

President Trump is signaling a more aggressive approach toward Syria, saying on Wednesday reports of a deadly gas attack by forces loyal to Bashar Assad had “crossed a lot of lines” and moved him to rethink his strategy.

At a joint press conference on Wednesday at the White House with Jordan’s King Abdullah II, Trump indicated that the Syrian leader had gone too far with an attack this week that killed dozens of his own people and injured scores more, including women and children.

“It crossed a lot of lines for me,” Trump said. “When you kill innocent children, innocent babies, little babies with a chemical gas that is so lethal that people were shocked to hear what gas it was, that crosses many lines beyond the red line. Many, many lines.”

Hamas 'would accept Palestine state within 1967 borders'

Hamas would accept a sovereign Palestinian state across the 1967 borders with Jerusalem as its capital without recognising Israel, according to the leaked draft of a document on the organisation's stragety.

AlMayadeen, a pro-Hezbollah Beirut-based TV channel, leaked a copy of the document on Monday, which reestablishes Hamas’ goals and ideological tenets.

Although the document refers to Palestine as the land between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan river, it says the group considers a state in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip a “national consensus formula” while emphasising the return of displaced Palestinians and their descendants.

Hundreds of thousands of Palestinians were forced to leave their land ahead of the establishment of Israel in 1948.

Britain hands over embassy to Israel’s war industry

Does Britain conceal the full extent of its support for Israel?

Sayeeda Warsi, a Conservative politician, recently urged the prosecution of British citizens who fight for the Israeli military.

Warsi should be commended for raising an important issue – just as she did when resigning as a government minister over Britain’s refusal to condemn the 2014 bombing of Gaza.

Yet Britain provides more direct assistance to Israel than allowing Londoners and Mancunians join a foreign army.

One example of that assistance has avoided scrutiny: Britain’s embassy in Tel Aviv has hired senior players in Israel’s weapons industry.

How Israel sabotages war crimes investigations in Gaza

Israel systematically denies human rights workers entry to the occupied Gaza Strip, according to a new report by Human Rights Watch.

The group says the travel ban, which has been enforced for almost a decade, has significantly impeded the work of international, Palestinian and Israeli human rights groups, which document violations by the Israeli military and Palestinian armed groups.

The Israeli government told Human Rights Watch that the travel restriction is imposed for security reasons. It regularly informs applicants for travel permits that the Israeli government is only obliged to allow passage in “exceptional humanitarian circumstances.”

US judge throws out key claim against academic boycott of Israel

Israel and its surrogates suffered a significant defeat last week, when a federal court in Washington, DC, threw out a key claim in a lawsuit against the American Studies Association for its resolution to boycott Israeli academic institutions.

The lawsuit, filed by current and former members of the ASA last year, argued that the 2013 resolution was a breach of contract because it did not fall within the scope of the group’s mission.

The complaint appeared to be a test of a new lawfare tactic that accuses an entity of acting beyond its chartered purpose – a claim that it is acting ultra vires, in legal language.

Anti-Palestinian activists hoped the strategy could be used to thwart other academic groups adopting boycott resolutions.

But US District Judge Rudolph Contreras dismissed the claim on 31 March, writing that the boycott resolution was enacted “in furtherance of the ASA’s purpose of advancing education and the promotion of the study of American culture.”

Lebanon also will be affected by the Israeli-EU agreement which will deprive the country from a major market to sell its gas resources. Oil exploration in Lebanon is scheduled to start soon in order to protect the Lebanese resources from any Zionist infringement and to find suitable markets for the country’s production.

How Netanyahu’s dirty tricks squad targets boycotts

Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed cohorts of Israel loyalists in the United States by video link last week at the annual conference of Aipac, the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee. They should, he said, follow his government’s example and defend Israel on the "moral battlefield" against the growing threat of the international boycott divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement. In Mr Netanyahu’s simple-minded language, support for Palestinian rights, and opposition to the settlements, is equivalent to "delegitimisation" of Israel.

The current obsession with BDS reflects a changing political environment for Israel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, BDS is the only language Tel Aviv understands, in terms of its stopping of the continued persecution/punishment of the Palestinian people, just because they are still breathing.

Other approaches have been tried, but none of them have been successful.

Netanyahu, despite his bellicose, hubristic belligerence, fully comprehends that a really bad economic situation in Israel, created through BDS, may be the ticket to get him out of office, and permanently.

And I would like to politely suggest that at this point in his premiership, he has absolutely outlived his usefulness to the Israeli people, both domestically and internationally.

In Israel, the eliminationist camp is already in charge

Israel may invest great resources in efforts to present itself to the world as a light unto the nations, an exemplary state that deserves to be supported and even emulated. But as I reveal in the video, with words and images, the exact opposite is often the case.

I survey some of the seediest scandals that plagued Israeli society in 2016. Many of these were covered extensively by The Electronic Intifada and by this writer specifically, but otherwise received little attention from other media outlets.

The talk focuses on top Israeli leaders who blame their society’s ills on indigenous Palestinians, African refugees and leftist Jews, on the violent vigilantes that this hate speech inspires and on the large swath of the general public that embraces these racists, inciters and attackers.

But this not merely a retrospective of 2016. Focusing on Israel’s misconduct, the lecture also includes original analysis and hopefully a fresh perspective on the situation.

Syrian people do not want Assad as leader: U.S. envoy to U.N

The United States does not believe that the Syrian people want President Bashar al-Assad as their leader any longer, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on Monday.

"We have no love for Assad. We've made that very clear. We think that he has been a hindrance to peace for a long time. He's a war criminal. What he's done to his people is nothing more than disgusting," she said.

Haley was asked about U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's remarks in the Turkish capital Ankara on Thursday, in which he said that Assad's status would be decided by the Syrian people.

Dangerous Crossroads: Russia Fears a US Preemptive Nuclear Attack

According to Russia’s General Staff deputy head of operations Gen. Viktor Poznikhir,

“(t)he presence of American ABM sites in Europe and ABM-capable ships in the seas and oceans close to Russia’s territory creates a powerful clandestine potential for delivering a surprise nuclear missile strike against Russia.”

“The presence of the global ABM system lowers the threshold for the use of nuclear weapons, because it gives the US the illusion of impunity for using strategic offensive weapons from under the protection of the ABM ‘umbrella.’”

“The ABM shield is a symbol of the build-up of rocket forces in the world and a trigger for a new arms race.”

Since the onset of Western-instigated Cold War in the late 1940s, “analysts” in Washington and at the Pentagon believed nuclear war on Russia was winnable.

Madness persists, undermining global security, threatening humanity more than ever with neocons in charge of US militarism and war-making.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I find myself becoming rapidly disenchanted with the Trump Administration.

There is a phase from the French language, and that phrase is "plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose.", translated into English, meaning "The more things change, the more they remain the same."

OF the two candidates last November, I really thought that President Trump would be the one to keep us out of these endless, bloody, and costly wars; unfortunately, what I see coming is a potential headlong war against Russia; North Korea; and Iran, with side notes of regime change in places like Venezuela and Syria.

Unfortunately, President Trump appears to have become a blunt instrument of the American Deep State, signing off on more wars, more misery, and a continuation of more wealth inequality here at home.

My disappointment is visceral.

No Early Elections: Netanyahu Strong-arms Finance Minister, Kills New News Broadcaster

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reached a deal with Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon Thursday that puts an end to a political crisis that threatened to see the government dissolved over a new public broadcaster, senior sources say. According to the deal, the broadcaster's news division will be dismantled.
Earlier this month the prime minister announced he was rethinking a compromise to allow Kan, the new public broadcaster to launch, but only following enactment of new legislation giving the government more influence over the new authority.

Netanyahu had threatened to dissolve the Knesset if Kahlon doesn't agree to pass the legislation, which would also ensure political control over all broadcast media outlets in the country. Netanyahu and Kahlon had met five times over the past week in bid to end the crisis.

According to coalition chairman David Bitan, Netanyahu and Kahlon had reconciled their positions and new elections won't take place.

STEINITZ TO JPOST: IRAN’S TRACTION IN SYRIA A GREATER THREAT TO ISRAEL THAN ISIS

As world powers focus on toppling ISIS, Iran is quietly gaining traction in Syria – posing a direct threat to Israel, eastern Mediterranean countries and the entire Arabian Peninsula, according to National Infrastructure, Energy and Water Minister Yuval Steinitz.

“It’s very easy and convenient to focus on ISIS,” he told The Jerusalem Post. “But we have two challenges in Syria.

One is ISIS and one is Iran.

The greater threat is coming from Iran, and not just from its nuclear program. The most immediate and urgent threat is the Iranian plan to transform Syria, after this horrible, brutal civil war is over, into some kind of extension of Iran.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is both interesting that Yuval makes this fact-free charge, and that the alleged JP journalist recording the interview does not challenge him on this.

While it is true that Russia has used an Iranian base from which to stage bombing raids in Syria last year,

Russia Sends Bombers to Syria Using Base in Iran

However, Iran has no permanent bases in Syria, and in fact, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu has been foaming at the mouth recently about an alleged Iranian Naval base in Syria...which does not exist.

Three of the five were named by police as Miklos Weinstock, 22; David Falkowitz, 17; and Shalom Grohman, 17. The names of the two others were withheld, in accordance with police regulations, because they are juveniles under 16.

All five gave their addresses as being in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, an area inhabited by many ultra-zealous religious Jews. All were arraigned before magistrates today on charges of malicious mischief, and paroled for further hearings November 15.

Palestinian-American teacher brutally attacked by Jewish Defense League outside AIPAC conference

A 55-year old Palestinian-American instructor at a community college in North Carolina was “brutally beaten” by members of the Jewish Defense League (JDL) while walking by the AIPAC conference in Washington DC on Sunday, according to a video and statement released by the Institute for Middle East Understanding (IMEU) today. The man was identified as Kamal Nayfeh.

The JDL affiliates “punched and kicked him and hit him in the face with flag poles, leaving him with cuts and bruises all over his face and body,” said the IMEU in the statement. Photos were taken of Nayfeh after the and beatings show his face bloodied and bruised.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Jewish Defense League was declared a terrorist group back in 1986. They tried to assassinate Congressman Daryl Issa in 2001. FBI statistics show that, from 1980 through 1985, there were 18 officially classified terrorist attacks in the U.S. committed by Jews; 15 of those by members of the JDL. So why are they still at large?

Israel is world’s leading practitioner of water apartheid

Israel markets its water expertise as an agent of change internationally but uses water as a weapon of war against the Palestinians, according to South Africa’s minister of water and sanitation, Nomvula Mokonyane.

The minister was criticizing Israel’s policies in a speech during Israeli Apartheid Week delivered earlier this month at the Stellenbosch University in South Africa.

Mokonyane said Israel’s water story has “two faces.” One is Israel as the “world’s leading practitioner of water apartheid.” Israel has full control of all water access and water use in historic Palestine – the West Bank, Gaza Strip and present-day Israel. This “skewed distribution” leaves Palestinians in the West Bank with 73 liters per person per day, Mokonyane said, compared to 240-300 liters for Israelis.

The Palestinian share is far less than the World Health Organization’s recommendation of 100 liters per person per day for domestic use, hospitals, schools and other institutions.

IN PHOTOS ~~ RUNNING FOR GAZA IN BROOKLYN

On March 25th, for the 3rd year in a row, UNRWA held a 5K run in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park. The sky was threatening, the temperature was moderate after a week of winter cold, and the rain never arrived. At 8AM people started arriving to pick up their numbers, tee shirts, and have something to eat. At 9AM about 1400 runners took off – they included babies and grandparents, some ran, some walked, some were pushed in carriages and some were in wheelchairs, one used a scooter and many were carried. It was truly a joyful family event. The Brooklyn event raised approximately $200,000 for mental health services for the children of Gaza. The people of Gaza will see photos and videos of the event – they will see that good people are thinking of them and trying to help. There will be 4 more 5K runs in other U.S. cities. The people of Gaza will not be forgotten!

The US-Israel Special Relationship Timeline That AIPAC Doesn’t Want You To See

May 14, 1948– Official Recognition- The United States of America becomes the first country to officially recognize Israel as an independent nation.

1949-1973- US-Israel Aid Commences– The United States gives Israel an average of $122 million per year in foreign aid payments.

Summer 1954– Lavon Affair– Israel recruits Egyptian Jews to blow up American and British targets in Egypt. Israel planned on blaming the murderous false-flag attacks on the Muslim Brotherhood in an effort to garner support from the US and Britain. After officially denying any involvement, the Israeli government finally admitted their role in the incident in 2005 by honoring the surviving agents with a certificate of appreciation.

According to a report by Lebanese media, Syria has issued a very serious warning to Israel – bomb Syria again and SCUD missiles will rain down on Israel.

According to the report by al-Diyar, the message was delivered via Russian officials. It quite clearly stated that, if Israel attacks Syria again, Syria will respond with deadly force, including the use of SCUD missiles against Israeli targets...

AIPAC IS BACK IN TOWN!

Spring in Washington would not be complete without the city’s famous cherry blossoms and the annual “Policy Conference” meeting of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). The 15,000 plus participants began arriving on Sunday and will be here at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center until tomorrow morning, at which point many of them will descend on Congress like a swarm of ravenous locusts to make sure that our Solons on the Potomac are doing what is right by Israel.

AIPAC is the most powerful foreign policy lobby in Washington. It’s annual budget exceeds $77 million plus it has an endowment of $100 million. It has nearly 400 employees and also supports local chapters and initiatives throughout the United States.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

But this year, something is different; a smell of change in the air, which I hope grows. As reported yesterday by presstv.com:

Americans hold protest in Washington against Zionist lobby

How Chicago’s Jewish Federation funds anti-Muslim hatred

A Chicago-based group that claims to “stand against hate” has contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to organizations identified by the Southern Poverty Law Center as “anti-Muslim extremists,” tax documents reveal.

According to an investigation by the Chicago chapter of Jewish Voice for Peace, the Jewish United Fund of Metropolitan Chicago, also called the Jewish Federation, gave nearly $650,000 to Daniel Pipes’ Middle East Forum between 2011 and 2014.

The group also contributed $26,000 to Steven Emerson’s Investigative Project on Terrorism during the same time period.

Emerson and Pipes have a long history of disseminating forged or false information with the aim of maligning Muslims in the United States.

Israel's airstrike on Syria spooks Middle East

Israeli warplanes carrying out airstrikes on a shipment of Iranian arms to Lebanese Hezbollah guerrillas in Syria managed to evade Syrian air-defense missiles but the incident is a graphic demonstration of how the war has the potential to further inflame the region.

There are likely to be further Israeli airstrikes against Hezbol­lah in Syria, reflecting deepening Israeli concerns that Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps and their Lebanese ally are establish­ing a new front on the divided Go­lan Heights from which to fight the Jewish state.

Despite Campaign Promises, Trump Set To Outdo Obama On Military Adventurism

When asked about Trump attitudes toward war, MIT professor and renowned linguist and political analyst Noam Chomsky told MintPress News that the idea that he was an anti-war candidate “was based on his criticisms of the Iraq and Libya attacks (which, contrary to his lies, he supported) and his ambiguous statements about reducing tensions with Russia – a good thing, if he meant it. But his actual policies are extremely dangerous.”

“[This includes] the sharp increase in the military budget, the weakening of restrictions on drone strikes, and the wild charges about Iran,” Chomsky said, adding that what really worries those who pay attention to these issues “is his megalomania and unpredictability…we know how someone who goes berserk over minor slights might react in a moment of crisis.”

Syria Threatens Scud Strikes If Israel Attacks Again

Israel had been intermittently attacking Syrian military targets throughout the Syrian Civil War, but that conflict has escalated dramatically in recent weeks, with Syria resisting larger Israeli strikes with anti-aircraft missiles, and Israel continuing to strike, and threatening to wipe out Syria’s air defenses outright.

Syria has a considerable cache of Scud missiles, which it acquired over the years in large part related to their ongoing arms race with Israel. Syrian officials reportedly threatened to hit military bases in northern Israel, and potentially strikes against the Haifa Port if Israel attacks civilian targets in Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Syrian President Al-Assad, a word, please; do NOT give the Israeli government the "justification" for Israel and the US to go into Syria militarily, by using these scud weapons.

Right now, your best recourse is appealing to Russia President Putin for the best defensive weapons they can provide you.

AMERICAN JEWS PROTEST PRO-ISRAEL CONFERENCE ON EVE OF THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE OCCUPATION

More than 1,000 Jews and allies marched on Sunday on the annual policy conference held by the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the largest pro-Israel institution in the American Jewish community. Following the march, members of IfNotNow dropped two banners inside the conference which read “IfNotNow Rejects AIPAC and the Occupation #JewishResistance”.

This year’s conference, the first of Donald Trump’s presidency, comes during the 50th year of Israel’s occupation of the Palestinian territories. The protesters emphasized that in this time, AIPAC has done more than any other Jewish institution to entrench the occupation and normalize its effects in the American Jewish community.

Trump’s Ambassador to Israel is Truly Terrifying

During the campaign, Friedman contributed commentary to Arutz Sheva, an extreme right-wing publication based in Israel. In an August 2016 post, he called for an “end to the two-state narrative,” which he described as the product of a U.S. State Department “with a hundred-year history of anti-Semitism.” Friedman will now be collecting a paycheck from that evil institution. He continued, “At this juncture, a Palestinian state is the last thing the [Palestinian] middle class wants—they know better than anyone how corrupt and inept their people are at self-government.” According to him, no Palestinians in the West Bank (he prefers to call them “Arabs of Judea and Samaria”) are “under any physical threat by the Israeli government.” This was news to me. I’ve traveled repeatedly to Hebron, where I’ve seen the barbed wire surrounding the Palestinian part of town and the watchtowers with heavily armed Israeli soldiers facing toward the Arabs inside.

Smears by Israel envoy rejected in UK Parliament probe

A formal investigation has rejected Israeli government claims that a British lawmaker hosted an anti-Semitic event in Parliament.

The complaint stems from an October 2016 meeting hosted in a parliamentary committee room by Jenny Tonge, a member of the unelected upper chamber, the House of Lords.

It was organized by the Palestinian Return Centre, a UK-based advocacy organization, to launch the Balfour Apology Campaign. The campaign seeks an official apology from the UK government for Britain’s promise a century ago to help the Zionist movement establish a homeland in Palestine.

Netanyahu Rejects US Proposal on Reining in Settlement Growth

After four solid days of negotiations, the US-Israel talks on a deal for slowing settlement construction in the occupied West Bank still does not appear to be close to resolved, with all indications that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is continuing to reject all specific proposals.

Netanyahu actually initiated the talks as a way of trying to resolve a disagreement over the rate of settlement expansion with the Trump Administration, and he is said to have agreed “in principle” with the idea of slowing construction. Getting him pinned down on exactly what that means is another matter.

Netanyahu already made the announcement that the deal, which hasn’t been reached, won’t include any restrictions on construction in occupied East Jerusalem. The most recent US proposal would’ve conceded that point and given a specific metric on construction in the main settlement blocs in the West Bank, but Netanyahu rejected it because it called for halting expansion in the isolated settlements.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word please; focusing your foreign policy efforts on exercises in futility will not move your foreign policy forward.

May I strongly suggest that you move away from the Israeli/Palestinian issue for this very reason, at least at this moment in Israeli history.

You need to wait until the people of Israel regain their collective geopolitical sanity, and vote him out of office.

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is the kind of interesting, and belligerently hubristic, piece of work human being who will "relieve himself" in your face, then insist it must be raining.

US Will Keep Ground Troops in Libya

In a press briefing at the Pentagon today, African Command leader Gen. Thomas Waldhauser announced that the US intends to keep ground troops in Libya for the foreseeable future to support “friendly forces,” and to “degrade” the ISIS forces that remain in the country.

Waldhauser did not specify how many US troops are in Libya now, or how many will stay, but did estimate that there were less than 200 ISIS fighters left in Libya. The US had announced the end of the anti-ISIS campaign in Libya back in December, but never fully withdrew from the country.

The US forces were in Libya trying to help the “unity” government defeat ISIS in the city of Sirte. US officials repeatedly claimed the city was totally surrounded, and that no ISIS fighters would get away, though when the fighting finally ended, a substantial number of ISIS fighters did in fact get away.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: this is "military-speak" for the reality that the US government is never leaving Libya because of the oil and the oil pipelines.

We Mean Business: Syria Will Fire Scuds at Israel in Response to Airstrikes

The Syrian government has announced that it will retaliate should Israel continue to conduct airstrikes on Syrian territory.

Any further airstrikes on Syrian territory will be met with deadly force and retaliation strikes deep within Israeli soil, they said.

According to the message, delivered via Russian mediators, attacks on Syrian military objects will be met with Scud missiles launched at Israeli military (IDF) bases. If Israel attacks civilian infrastructure, Syrian missiles will be fired at Israel's Haifa port and petrochemical plant. The missiles will be launched without any prior notice, the statement said.
