PEACE IS NOT A GAME OF ‘TRUTH OR DARE’

False or not, the photo was meant to be an inspiration to those fighting for Peace.

The following photo is actually a true one …. but keep in mind that the struggle for Peace is not a game of Truth or Dare! Any tool that can be used can be considered Truth …. I dare you to disagree!

BDS MOVEMENT ‘BACKHANDEDLY’ ENDORSES NETANYAHU

Barghouti, speaking recently at an event held at Columbia University Law School in Manhattan, credited broadly negative world response to Netanyahu and his government’s hardline policies, for much of the movement’s success in recent years.

“We’ve got to give credit to Netanyahu,” Barghouti said in remarks quoted on the pro-BDS Mondoweiss website. “Without him we could not have reached this far, at this time”.

Videos show casual brutality of Israeli army in Hebron

Two videos published by Christian Peacemaker Teams show the casual brutality faced by the people of the Palestinian city of Hebron in the occupied West Bank.

The first video, above, shows what happened when a group of Palestinians waving flags attempted to stage a peaceful protest against the closure of “Checkpoint 56” on 29 November.

As Christian Peacemaker Teams explains in a 4 December release, the protestors were immediately met by “a torrent of tear gas and sound grenades rained down from Israeli forces, who were occupying rooftops” above the Bab al-Zawiya neighborhood.

Checkpoint 56 stands between the Bab al-Zawiya and Tel Rumeida districts and leads on to a small section of Shuhada Street. Palestinians are banned from most of the street, once a bustling center of city life, for the benefit of Israeli settlers.

Moussavi said that the depot contained a lot of explosives, weapons and bombs all made by Israel.

Israel’s worst enemy is Netanyahu

Netanyahu has a siege mentality. He has lived his life in survival mode premised on Jews as eternal victims, which is why in almost all of his major speeches he refers to the Holocaust. Israel is a nuclear-armed country with the most powerful army in the region and is under the protection of the superpower. His attempts to paint Jews as victims are cynical; they are nothing more than a pretext to perpetuate Israel’s brutal occupation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem citing the Palestinians as an existential threat.

AIDING ISIS: Israel Bombs Syria For Fifth Time in 18 Months, Gives Arms, Medical Aid to Militants

As is customary, Israeli officials refused to ‘confirm or deny’ the bombing raid, in what the Jerusalem Post describes as, “Maintaining a policy of ambiguity that is meant to allow the other side to save face and to stave off retaliation”.
Israel is claiming this, its fifth unprovoked airstrike against Syria in 18 months (see full list of attacks below), was carried out as a ‘defensive measure’, claiming that Syria was “hiding sophisticated weaponry destined for Hezbollah in Lebanon”. One Lebanese TV correspondent claimed that Israel struck 10 crucial intelligence-linked locations in Syria that “belonged to Iran”. The same news outlet also reported other explosions heard near the Israeli-Lebanese border, allegedly from IDF airforce maneuvers.

Netanyahu asks US to release agent Pollard

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday reiterated his country's calls for the United States to release a Jewish agent held in an American jail, saying that the agent's life was in danger after 30 years of imprisonment.

In a phone conversation this evening with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, Netanyahu called for releasing Jonathan Pollard, the Israeli Premier's spokesman Ofir Gendleman said.

"Pollard's life is in danger," Gendleman quoted on his Twitter account Netanyahu as telling Kerry during the phone conversation.

"After 30 years, it is time for him to be released and live the rest of his life as a free man," he added.

BETHLEHEM LIGHTS UP FOR CHRISTMAS

We just had the Christmas tree lighting in the Manger Square, Bethlehem and it was beautiful. It was appropriate to reflect on challenges and
opportunities in the ongoing struggle. If we believe that Jesus brought the message of peace, the tumult in his era seems remarkably similar yo this era of occupation, repression, religious zealotry, corrupt leaders etc.

Yet, 2014 could be summed up as the year in which the parameters of the
struggle where made much clearer. It is a struggle between the elite rich who have increasingly pushed for more police and military to protect their gains and suppress the 99.9% of the world that is suffering. From Ferguson to Gaza to Kobani, the struggle continues.

Ever hear of MEMRI? (Middle East Research Institute)

The institute was co-founded in 1998 by Yigal Carmon, a former Israeli military intelligence officer and Meyrav Wurmser, an Israeli-born, American political scientist. MEMRI states that its goal is to “bridge the language gap between the Middle East and the West”. Critics charge that it aims to portray the Arab and Muslim world in a negative light, through the production and dissemination of inaccurate translations and by selectively translating views of extremists while deemphasizing or ignoring mainstream opinions.

The BRICS Nations Will Take Down The Dollar? But What About Israel?

Voters in New York started a petition ballot initiative to investigate 911. There had never been a criminal investigation into either the assassination of President Kennedy or into the deaths of some 3,000 people on 911. A city official of Jewish descent asked of the proposed investigation into 911, ‘Will this be good for Israel?’ Apparently the Jews of New York decided that an investigation into the truth of 911 would not be good for Israel because they denied the petition ballot access. The Goyim should not be allowed to decide for themselves who was responsible for an act that pushed America into spending trillions of dollars and killing the neighbors of Israel who said No to Jewish Supremacism.

Israel boycott movement survives challenge

Members of the American Anthropological Association have soundly defeated a proposed resolution opposing the academic boycott of Israel, paving the way for continued conversation on the topic and the possibility that a pro-boycott measure will be presented for a vote at the business meeting next year.

About 700 anthropologists showed up to vote at the association’s annual business meeting on Friday, prompting organisers to open the wall between two ballrooms to accommodate the crowd. Just 52 members voted in favour of the resolution opposing the academic boycott, so few that conference organisers did not count the number of “no” votes (a vote to end debate and put the resolution to a vote had passed by a 653-27 margin just minutes earlier).

Israel attempts to undermine EU vote on Palestine Statehood

Israeli foreign ministry has been working to undermine a vote on recognising Palestinian statehood in the European parliament, Anadolu Agency stated on Friday.

Israeli Radio was quoted by Anadolu as saying that the Israeli Ambassador to the EU in Brussels David Walzer stated, "I have been contacting the different parliamentarian blocs of the EU ahead of the vote to recognise the Palestine State this month."

The EU parliament postponed the vote, which was due to take place on November 24, to December 18. The EU members were to vote on the recognition of Palestinian statehood.

Should Israel Take Military Action Against Iran?

Iran is "stalling the time until they get the bomb," Dr. Joseph Frager, Chairman of the World Committee for the Land of Israel, told Arutz Sheva at the Jaffa Institute Gala Dinner honoring Rabbi Yaakov Nasirov last week. "It's going to happen while under President [Barack] Obama's watch, and it will make his presidency one of the all-time worst in American history."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Go ahead, Israel; attack Iran. And We The People promise that everyone in Congress who supports you will be put on a plane and parachuted into Tel Aviv to help. Other than that we will sit this one out and keep our money and children here at home. And that means that once you get into a war with Iran (and whoever comes to Iran's aid) you will have to report to those nuclear weapons you have been claiming you do not possess to get out of it, thereby proving to the world that you have been liars all along!

So, go ahead and have fun. We will watch from this wide of the Atlantic.

Israeli airstrikes have hit targets near Damascus International Airport and in the town of Dimas near the Lebanon border, Syrian state TV reports.

"The Israeli enemy committed aggression against Syria by targeting two safe areas in Damascus province, in all of Dimas and near the Damascus International Airport," the report said, adding that there were no casualties.

A Syrian military source confirmed to RIA Novosti news agency that the country’s main airport was targeted.

Residents in the Syrian capital said they heard loud explosions.

UN report reveals Israeli links with Syria Takfiris

A report recently submitted to the UN Security Council has revealed that the Israeli regime’s military has regular contacts with Takfiri militant groups operating against the Syrian government.

The United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF), which has monitored the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights since 1974, said in the report that Israeli officers and the foreign-backed terrorists have “direct cooperation” on the Syrian border over the past 18 months, Haaretz reported on Sunday.

The UNDOF further said they saw Israeli soldiers “on the eastern side of the border fence opening the gate and letting two people enter Israel.”

The peacekeepers also acknowledged that Israel has been admitting injured militants for medical treatment in Safed and Nahariya hospitals.

Mossad training ISIL terrorists: Putin aide

Prokhanov said ISIL is a byproduct of US policies in the Middle East.

EVEN A FAKE IMAGE CAN BE AN INSPIRATION FOR PEACE

One week into Israel’s war with Gaza this past summer, the Barbadian-born singer Rihanna tweeted a photo of an Israeli boy and a Palestinian boy with their arms around each other facing away from the camera: “Let’s pray for peace and a swift end to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict!” she wrote. “Is there any hope?….”

The photo was posted as damage control after the pop star tweeted — and then eight minutes later deleted — the hashtag #FreePalestine. That initial tweet provoked an immediate barrage from Israel advocates on Twitter asking if she supported Hamas. It’s not clear to what degree the photo mollified her critics. But what Rihanna didn’t know was that the photo is actually a fake.

The boys in the picture aren’t an Israeli and a Palestinian, but two Israeli Jews.

Trial of American Activist Maimed by Israeli Military to Begin

Tristan Anderson was critically injured after being shot in the head with a high velocity tear gas grenade by Israeli Border Police following a protest against the construction of the “Separation Wall” in March of 2009 in the West Bank village of Ni’ilin. Anderson, an international solidarity activist from Oakland, California, had arrived in the region a few weeks earlier with his American Jewish girlfriend who also attended demonstrations opposing the seizure of Palestinian land and freedoms for the building of the Wall.

According to its manufacturer, Combined Systems Inc (of the USA), High Velocity Tear Gas grenades are intended as “barricade penetrators” and have a range of several hundred meters. Tristan was shot in the face from about 60 meters away, crushing his skull, blinding him in one of his eyes, and sending shards of bone penetrating deep into his brain.

The Plebiscite

ISRAELIS ARE fed up with Binyamin Netanyahu. They are fed up with the government. They are fed up with all political parties. They are fed up with themselves. They are fed up.

That is the reason for the disintegration of the government this week. It did not fall because of any particular issue. Certainly not because of irrelevant matters like peace and war, occupation, racism, democracy and nonsense like that.

Curiously enough, this has happened to Netanyahu once before. His first government disintegrated in 1999, and the whole country breathed an audible sigh of relief. Indeed, the general feeling was of liberation, as if a foreign invader had finally been expelled. Like Paris in 1944.

Netanyahu’s ‘Jewish state’ bill would be a crippling blow to Israel

Israelis will soon face a primordial decision respecting the future of their country: whether to define Israel as a supra-national state which accords primary rights, both in law and in fact, based solely on Jewish identity. The thrust of the Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s “nation-state bill” effectively discards the long-held (if imperfectly observed) legal assertion that all Israelis, including that country’s Arab citizens, enjoy equality under the law. If passed, it would become part of Israel’s constitution.

Congress Passes Bill Declaring Israel Special Type of Ally

Congress pushed through the US-Israeli Strategic Partnership Act this week, a bill which creates a new class of special ally within the law called a “major strategic partner,” which only Israel will occupy.

The new class increases the amount of “emergency” US weaponry stashed in Israel, just months after Israel controversially raided that stockpile for the Gaza War, and provides guaranteed access to myriad other technologies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This bill enables the Israeli government to do the following:

1. To continue to refuse to become a signatory of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Agreement, which Iran has done, and have their nuclear facilities inspected.
2. Continue killing, torturing, and maiming Palestinians, (including jailed Palestinian children) and annexing their land.
3. Continue to wage wars in the region with impunity, backed by American military technology and might.

As someone who believes in justice and decency, I am appalled that Congress has done this.

Holocaust article you have not read - 1943 Readers Digest

Question: How does Ben Hecht know in late 1942, there will be millions of additional Jews killed before the war ends ?

Answer: He read a copy of the May 20, 1920 issue of the New York Times, which carried a ad on page 9 by the Joint Distribution Committee, and that ad told the world of the plight of 6,000,000 dying Jews in Europe on the verge of extermination. Is it no wonder not one of these holocaust promoters will debate the issue. They know it is mish- mash of lies, fabrications and tall tales, many of which defy the laws of physics, that the average 10 year old, can figure out is a scam.

A Safa correspondent said that yesterday morning; Palestinians found copies of the Israeli orders at the entrance of the Palestinian village of Rantis.

The orders included information telling the villagers that the Israeli army had confiscated 231 dunams from the villages of Rantis, Shuqba, Qibya and Badras for security reasons. They told the villagers to appeal against the decision or claim compensation.

According to Safa, the land which is being confiscated is located along the Separation Wall. The agency believes that it will be used to widen the Wall.

Hardly A Debate – Gilad Atzmon vs. Geoffrey Alderman

Yesterday I was invited by Press TV to participate in their daily program, ‘The Debate.’ In the last few years I have occasionally participated on the show. Usually I am confronted with banal Hasbara mouthpieces. I tend to demolish their arguments within the first round of questions.

Yesterday, I was asked to debate professor Geoffrey Alderman – an avid Zionist academic. To my great surprise Alderman and I agreed on pretty much everything: we had similar views on Israeli politics, the nature of the Jewish State, Netanyahu's Politics, Netanyahu’s engineered crisis, Jewish Lobby Domination in the West and other topics. Fascinating exchange but hardly a debate.

Iran seeks post on key U.N. committee, Israel deems it "absurd"

Iran is seeking a senior post on a United Nations committee that decides accreditation of non-governmental organizations, a move that Israel on Tuesday compared to gangster Al Capone running the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Iran was elected to the 19-member committee in April for a four-year term from 2015. The United States and Israel are also members of the committee, which acts as a kind of gatekeeper for rights groups and other NGOs seeking access to U.N. headquarters to lobby and participate in meetings and other events.

Arabs Are the Michael Browns of Israel

The shooting took place in early November and was captured on video. The assailant, whose skin shade was different from the cops’, was carrying what has been described by the police as a knife, which he used to bang on the window of a parked police car. After a few moments, four officers exited the vehicle, causing the man to turn and walk away quickly. As can be seen in the video, one police officer then shot the man several times in the back. After the shooting, the police dragged the man’s limp body from the street to the police vehicle. He died a short time later.

Scene from an American city? Nope. Try Israel. The victim was 22-year-old Khayr al-Din Hamdan, an Arab-Israeli citizen, and the shooting by Israeli security forces took place in the northern Israeli city of Kafr Kanna. But it sounds disturbingly like too many incidents that happen in America, and in the past week or two, a number of observers have made the comparison.

Here in Virginia, U.S.A., I'm aware that the native people were murdered, driven out, and moved westward. But my personal connection to that crime is weak, and frankly I'm too busy trying to rein in my government's current abuses to focus on the distant past. Pocahontas is a cartoon, the Redskins a football team, and remaining Native Americans almost invisible. Protests of the European occupation of Virginia are virtually unheard of.

Iran: Nuclear Documents Forgeries Full of Mistakes

Still under pressure from the US to explain “secret documents” provided to the IAEA about their putative nuclear weapons activities, Iran is insisting they are obvious forgeries that don’t warrant extensive response.

Iran’s statement notes that the documents contain a number of basic errors, as well as a large number of fake names, which they say point toward a certain, unnamed IAEA member as the likely forger.

Israel razes Palestinian shops in E. Jerusalem

Israeli army bulldozers on Wednesday demolished a Palestinian building and 20 commercial shops in occupied East Jerusalem on claims that they had been built without permission.

"Four bulldozers backed by 300 Israeli troops forced their way into the Shuafat refugee camp early this morning and began demolishing 20 shops and one building," Mohamed Masalmeh, head of the refugee camp's popular committee, told The Anadolu Agency.

He said that Israeli forces had prevented anyone from approaching the area since early morning.

Owned by the al-Dijani family, the demolished properties had sat on 800 square meters of land.

"The targeted shops had included coffee shops, car repair shops, chicken butcheries, vegetable stores, supermarkets and many more," he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

East Jerusalem was never supposed to be a part of Israel and most of the buildings were built before Israel had any authority to issue permits. But Israel declares these buildings illegal and destroys them, claiming it is all the letter of the law. But remember, everything the Nazis did was the letter of law as well. Did that make it right?

The Anadolu Agency reported Al-Nosour saying, during a parliamentarian meeting, that the Jordanian position towards Jerusalem, the occupied Palestinian territories and settlements "does not need more clarification".

He stressed that no country is based on a religious law.

The Palestinians Have Managed to Topple Another Israeli Government

Israel’s didn’t perform well in the last round of violence. The IDF didn’t achieve a single military objective. After a few days, its forces withdrew, humiliated and exhausted. The Israeli military admitted that it lacked an answer to Palestinian ballistics, tunnels and fierceness. In addition, the conflict in Gaza spilled over to the West Bank and to Israeli cities. Throughout, Netanyahu’s cabinet reacted slowly. It seemed confused by events. Soon Israelis were openly admitting that the future of the Jewish State was gloomier than ever.

SUDDENLY THERE IS A PALESTINE AND PALESTINIANS

Did you ever notice that one of the hardest words for a zionist to utter or put into print is Palestinian? The word itself confirms that there is a Palestine.

News reports in the zionist media refer to Palestinians as Arabs, or at best, Israeli Arabs.

BUT, if any of the above are involved in a suspected terrorist attack there suddenly is a Palestine and Palestinians, except in the extreme right media as seen below.

Did you ever notice that?

Zionism And ISIS: Opposing Forces Or Two Sides Of The Same Coin?

Over the past decade, the Middle East — the cradle of civilization and the birthplace of the three major monotheistic religions — has become a flashpoint for religious extremism and fascism. The general public has grown used to associating radicalism with Islam, even to such an extent that the general notion is that the Islamic faith is the expression of religious extremism par excellence.

Yet such assessments have generally failed to take into account an equally dangerous radical trend that has been unfolding in the region for decades — Zionism.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I remember, as a kid, watching Khrushchev at the UN, banging his shoe on the table, and the translation of what he was saying was given as, "We will bury you!", which was construed by the "translator" as a threat against the US.

Of course, that was a complete mistranslation, and misrepresentation of what the man actually said. The real translation was "You will bury yourselves."

I think of those Jews, many of whom had escaped death during the Holocaust, who founded Israel.

And I have to wonder: is what Israel has become what they really wanted to see evolve?!?

A viciously apartheid, xenophobic culture, hating Muslim Arabs so intensely that many in government and Jewish faith communities have, sometimes very publicly, advocated their own, "Final Solution" to "The Arab Problem"?!?

There is a term in psychology called "enabling". It is when someone encourages someone else to do something that is bad and risky for that person, but -for their own reasons - continues to encourage this bad behaviour.

When one nation enables another nation's bad behaviour on the world stage, as the US does with Israel, the ultimate outcome cannot be good. And the US has done absolutely nothing to ameliorate the Israeli government's continuous onslaught against the Palestinians. Please note the following, from the Latimes.com, published on 24 July, 2014:

It was supposed to be a place of refuge from a devastating war. Hundreds of people were crammed into a United Nations-run elementary school in the northern Gaza Strip on Thursday when the converted shelter was hit by a series of explosions. At least 15 people were killed and more than 120 injured, according to local health officials. Survivors said they had packed their belongings and were gathered in the schoolyard awaiting evacuation when the shells hit. But the circumstances remained murky late in the day. The U.N. agency for Palestinian refugees said it had asked the Israeli liaison office repeatedly for a window of time in which to evacuate the staff and displaced people who wanted to leave the school. “We got no answer,” said Adnan abu Hasna, a spokesman for the U.N. Relief and Works Agency, or UNRWA. Survivors said they were waiting to leave when the shells hit.

These actions, coupled with brisk annexations of territories in which Palestinians have lived for generations; the routine torture of prisoners, including children;the daily killing of Palestinians in peaceful protest all lead to one inevitable conclusion: that Israel, as a country, is hell-bent on a complete genocide of all Palestinians, and a complete reconquering of the land, to, at last, create "Eretz Israel", or "Greater Israel."

I would strongly caution both the Israeli government, and certain religious leaders to be very, very careful about what they wish for here.

A physical victory in this regard may well lead to a moral, and spiritual curse upon this nation so intense that it can never, ever be unbroken.

Pollard’s parole plastering

Today, Israeli agent Jonathan Pollard enters the 30th year of his life sentence for the crime of passing classified information to an ally. As he does so, he is aware that yet another possible door to his long-awaited freedom has just slammed shut.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Jonathan Pollard stole classified information and SOLD it to Israel, who then traded it to the Soviet Union. His treason is as great as that of Julius and Ethyl Rosenberg, who gave the Soviets the secrets to the Atomic Bomb (but without going through Israel).

Israel headed to elections: Lapid rejects Netanyahu's terms for saving coalition

Finance Minister Yair Lapid late Monday rejected Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's ultimatums presented to him in a meeting billed as a last-ditch attempt to preserve the coalition.

Netanyahu demanded that Lapid stop “sabotaging the work of the government,” retract his opposition to Netanyahu’s version of the Jewish nation-state bill, and freeze the zero-VAT plan, the flagship of Lapid’s economic agenda.

At the end of the hour-long meeting, Lapid told the prime minister that he could not accede to these demands – paving his way out of the coalition.

Don't shoot, he's Jewish

What does it say when a lawyer argues that police shouldn't have shot his client because it was clear he wasn't an Arab?

...

The assumption reflected in attorney Yochai’s brief – and it’s impossible to deny that he has a talent for hinting at other couplings and other desires – reflects a certain worldview. And Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s nation-state bill is both the fruit of this worldview and an inexhaustible source of new energy for it. This, after all, is ostensibly the normative view – that a Jew isn’t dangerous, that if he’s diagnosed, identified, marked as a Jew, then he’s okay “as far as we’re concerned.” This thought was expressed as part of a rational argument and viewed as a truth known to all.

Gaza Faces Winter in Ruins

Three months after the war in Gaza, Sadeeqa Naseer still lives in a bomb site. Air strikes turned the two upper floors of her three-storey apartment building in the Gaza Strip town of Beit Hanoun into a rubble-strewn ruin.

Thirty-five people shelter on the ground floor, where holes blasted in the wall by tank shells have been covered over only by plastic sheeting that does little to keep out the cold wind and driving rain of the fast-approaching winter.

And Israel has refused to allow Turkey to provide electricity to Gaza from their floating power station to help keep the heat on.

Israel's Chief Military Rabbi questions Islamic religious significance of Al-Aqsa compound

Israel's Chief Military Rabbi Brig. Gen. Rafi Peretz has claimed that the religious significance of Jerusalem's al-Haram al-Sharif in Islam is an invention, stating that the vast majority of Muslims know nothing about the Quran.

During a lecture at the Otzem Pre-Military Torah Academy in Moshav Naveh, he claimed that Muslims have no real reason to pray at Temple Mount, known as al-Haram al-Sharif (The Noble Sanctuary) in Arabic.

"The only mosque any holiness is attributed to is Al-Aqsa. The rest of the Temple Mount has no religious significance," Peretz claimed.

"What is the Al-Aqsa Mosque?" Peretz asked. "It says in the Quran 'make me a mosque on the edge.' Al-Aqsa is on the edge. The edge of what? Mecca? The edge of the Arabian Peninsula. When they bow, they bow to Mecca but their backside is turned to the Temple Mount, because the edge for them is the edge of the Arabian Peninsula. So what are they doing on the Temple Mount?"

Jerusalem’s Hebrew-Arabic bilingual school, which teaches more than 1,000 Arab and Jewish pupils from across the city, was allegedly set on fire in a suspected hate crime attack.

A preliminary police investigation uncovered signs that the fire was set intentionally from inside the school. Hebrew graffiti reading “Kahane was right”, “Death to Arabs” and “There’s no co-existing with cancer” were also sprayed on the building’s walls.

Meir Kahane was a far-right rabbi, founder of the Jewish Defense League (JDL) in the US.

TURMOIL IN JERUSALEM DUE TO THEIR STUPIDITY ( THE ISRAELI GOVERNMENT’S)

Almost every conversation in East Jerusalem over the past few weeks has ended with the statement: “They are stupid” – meaning the Israeli government is stupid to behave in such-and-such a way toward Palestinian Jerusalem. If they would just make it easier to obtain construction permits, they say, if they would add just a few percentage points to the budget, if they would not beat demonstrators so savagely, if they did not trump up traffic violations, for example, then the clashes would not spread like wildfire.

This is the consecutive third week with no age restriction on people attending Friday prayers at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and everything went quietly. Got that? No humiliations and restrictions, no rioting.

Nuclear Deal With Iran Should Not Be 'Sealed at Any Price': Hammond

A comprehensive nuclear deal with Iran should not come at any price, but it should clearly state that Tehran would not be able to develop a nuclear weapons capability, UK Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said Tuesday.

"We cannot and will not succumb to the temptation of sealing a deal at any price, but we will remain steadfast in pursuit of a comprehensive agreement which respects the clear principle that Iran must not be able to develop a nuclear weapons capability," Hammond said at the House of Commons.
