ISRAEL FRAMING RUSSIA FOR ANTI-U.S. HACKER ATTACKS?

There it is! From the very same Yellow Press 'paper of record' that brought you the "Weapons of Mass Destruction" lie, and the "Assad gassed little children" lie, and the "Putin invaded Ukraine" lie, and the "ISIS beheadings" lie, comes the story of the cyber-bogeymen of Putin's Russia. This baseless accusation should be dismissed immediately upon first glance. It's not even worth the dignity of a rebuttal.

We would, however, like to address the question as to who the likely culprit might be. In crime-solving, precedent is a very important factor. Here's your precedent, brought to you by Israel's Main News Service, Ha'aretz:

High Court judge calls for U.S. to pardon Pollard

Supreme Court Justice Elyakim Rubinstein has called for the U.S. authorities to pardon Jonathan Pollard, the American who famously pleaded guilty to spying for Israel in 1987.

The call marked a rare public intervention by an Israeli judge into the American legal system. Rubinstein was speaking at a lecture Monday at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.

At the end of his talk, Rubinstein brought up Pollard, who has served 29 years of a life sentence. Mistakes were made, mainly by the Israelis, but by the Americans as well, and 29 years was enough, he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

They should have slapped the little bastard in the electric chair like they did the Rosenbergs.

Watch Slavoj Zigzag Zizek –

Supposedly the most advanced contemporary philosopher; a genuine essentialist thinker who managed to fool the Jew-prog universe (The Guardian Of Zion, Verso-Books, etc.) for years into believing that he was ‘one of clan,’ meanders until he eventually admits that it is Right Wing politics that appeals to Working Class people.

Zizek is telling the truth, but he manoeuvres clumsily. Zigzag shamelessly wraps his obvious observation with too many apologetics. Very disappointing indeed.

Zigzag Zizek was at the core of my intellectual inspiration two decades ago. But like many others, he decided long ago that it was The Guardian Of Zion that would pay the bills. And indeed, moral and intellectual duplicity has guaranteed him a frequent slot with Amy Goodman and Democracy Later. After all, lying for the cause is a kosher procedure.

Read the genocidal sermon a notable Atlanta rabbi gave this Rosh Hashanah

Last Thursday Rabbi Shalom Lewis of Congregation Etz Chaim in the Atlanta suburb of Marietta, Georgia gave what can only be understood as a call to genocide in his Rosh Hashanah sermon to welcome in the Jewish new year. The sermon, republished in full below, calls for a war on Islam and Muslims worldwide. Lewis says a “holy crusade” against Islam is needed to”exterminate it utterly and absolutely.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Now can you imagine the media frenzy that would erupt if some Christian, or worse, Muslim cleric gave a sermon calling for the extermination of the Jews? Yet here we have a Rabbi calling for genocide, and ABCNNBBCBSFOX could care less!

The U.S. Dares to Criticize Israel

It seems that, perhaps, Israel’s latest slaughter of defenseless Palestinians may have been a bit too much even for the United States to condone. In what may be the U.S.’s harshest, although still quite mild, criticism of its puppet master, President Barack Obama said that the plan to increase illegal settlement building could alienate Israel from ‘even its closest allies’.

There is, of course, no closer ally of Israel than the United States. Israel is able to disdain international law, violate the most basic human rights of Palestinians, slaughter men, women and children, bomb United Nations refugee centers, kill journalists and commit genocide only because of U.S. funding and use of its veto power in the U.N.

But the U.S., this time, went even further in its criticism. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said that the newly-approved construction would cause the global community to ‘question Israel’s ultimate commitment to a peaceful negotiated settlement’ with Palestinians.

‘It’s time’: Mike Huckabee leads a rally for Israel on Sunday by the U.S. Capitol

The insistent evangelical voice will ring out soon, and very close to the U.S. Capitol building. Scheduled for Sunday afternoon in Upper Senate Park, it’s the Rally for Israel, organized primarily by potential White House hopeful Mike Huckabee and Penny Nance, president of Concerned Women for America.

“It’s time for the United States to join together in prayer and support for Israel. I have been to Israel nearly 30 times over the past 41 years and have never seen the nation under such threat,” Mr. Huckabee observes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you love Israel so much, Mike, please move there. America needs leaders who will put America firs, second, and third!

Report: ISIS plots to seize Iran’s nuclear secrets

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) militant group is planning on seizing Tehran’s nuclear secrets and urging its fighters to plan for war with Iran, UK weekly newspaper The Sunday Times informed, Al Arabiya News reported.

The group urged its members to help them reach their ambitions in a manifesto which was allegedly written by Abdullah Ahmed al-Meshedani, a member of the group’s highly secretive six-man war cabinet.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Now we KNOW that ISIS is a fraud, as IAEA has never found that Iran has any nuclear secrets. Only Israel keeps flogging that dead horse. So ISIS will "invade" Iran, and the US, following the precedent they just set in Syria, will have their excuse to attack Iran.

Atlanta, GA - Jewish Newspaper Apologizes for Obama Assassination Scenario; Secret Service Investigates

The owner of a Jewish newspaper in Atlanta has said he deeply regrets writing a column suggesting that Israel consider “a hit” on Barack Obama if he stands in the way of the Jewish state defending itself.

Andrew Adler told the Guardian he wrote the column in the weekly Atlanta Jewish Times “to get a reaction” from the paper’s readers.

“The headline for the column was: ‘What would you do?’ That’s what I wanted to see,” he said. “It’s got like a Dr Phil reaction: what were you thinking? I feel really bad it did that.”

The column, first brought to light by Gawker, asks readers to imagine that they are the Israeli prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, confronting the threat posed by Hezbollah and Iran’s nuclear programme while also under pressure from a US president with an “Alice in Wonderland” belief in diplomacy over force.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I do not believe for a moment that Netanyahu and his cabinet have not considered a decapitation strike against Obama as an option. Some scholars suspect Israeli involvement with the John F. Kennedy assassination, owing to Kennedy's opposition to Israel's acquiring nuclear weapons.

Their sole consideration would be how Israel could get away with it, then blame it on another country.

And with "friends" like Israel....who needs enemies?!?

MOSSAD Agent Rita Katz Releases Another FAKE Beheading Tape

The footage on YouTube, highlighted on pro-Islamic State Twitter feeds and found online by the SITE private terrorism monitor, opens with a news report about the British parliament's vote last week to authorise air strikes against jihadist targets in Iraq.

In the video on YouTube, al-Britani, wearing a camouflage shirt and what appears to be a cast on his right arm, calls British and US military forces "cowards" in carrying out airstrikes instead of putting troops on the ground.

All you need to know about the MOSSAD agent Katz is in this blog, "Rita Katz; Better than Spielberg," which has a world of info, only posted a short portion here:

Marco Rubio slams Obama’s ‘deplorable’ treatment of Israel

U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., who sits on the U.S. Senate Foreign Affairs Committee, took aim at President Barack Obama’s criticism of Israel’s plans to add more housing around Jerusalem.

After Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met at the White House on Wednesday, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Obama questioned the plan to add 2,500 homes, insisting it would undermine the peace process with the Palestinians.

“This development will only draw condemnation from the international community,” Earnest said. “It also would call into question Israel’s ultimate commitment to a peaceful negotiated settlement with the Palestinians.”

Israel Lobby Supports Jabhat Al-Nusra, Insurgents In Aleppo Surrounded

There seems to be no concern in Tel Aviv that one day Jabhat al-Nusra could turn against Israel too. That is somewhat astonishing as both Hizbullah and Hamas started with Israeli support as counterweights to the Palestinian Liberation Organization only to later become the most capable foes of the Israeli occupation forces. One might have thought that Israeli strategists had learned from such foolishness.

But obviously they have not and now their lobby in the United States, here in form of theWashington Institute, supports that dumb policy by calling for further support for the Al-Qaida affiliate:

The risk of empowering an al Qaida affiliate is a small price to pay for Nusra’s contributions on the battlefield, said Jeffrey White, a former senior Defense Intelligence Agency analyst who’s now with the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, a think tank.

Israel army vehicles enter Gaza, forces open fire

Israeli army vehicles have entered the southern Gaza Strip and soldiers have opened fire on Palestinian agricultural areas in a flagrant violation of a recent ceasefire agreement.

A dozen Israeli military vehicles entered Gaza from a gate east of the southern city of Khan Yunis on Wednesday, crossing some 200 meters into the Palestinian territory.

Israeli soldiers then fired shots on Palestinian farms. Witnesses say the assault, which occurred in the early morning, forced agricultural workers to leave their lands. No injuries have been reported so far.

Earlier this week, Israeli military forces shot and injured a Palestinian farmer in northern Gaza near a fence separating Israeli-occupied territories from the blockaded coastal enclave. An Israeli military spokesperson claimed the farmer had come too close to the border fence.

Israeli official: The upcoming war on Gaza will be greater

Israeli occupation military officer said that "the upcoming war on Gaza will be greater, and will down more victims," Israeli sources say.

Eyal Eizenberg, Israeli Occupation Army Home Front Command, in a lecture in The Institute for National Security Studies (Tel Aviv University), said that "the recent assault on Gaza is not at all similar to the upcoming war that the Israeli army is preparing for."

Eizenberg added that "the future war will require stronger abilities and more sacrifices to pay a bigger price."

Netanyahu: Postpone Probe Into Attacks on UN Facilities in Gaza

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu got into a heated argument with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Tuesday night, according to Israeli officials, over the planned UN investigation into Israel attacking UN sites in the Gaza Strip.

Netanyahu had demanded Ban postpone the probe into the attacks indefinitely, pending Israel releasing its own inquiry results. He also accused Ban of “discriminating” against Israel by wanting to probe the attacks on UN sites full of civilians at all.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Ban Ki-Moon: don't listen to this bully.

Do these investigations, and do them NOW.

The shelling of schools and hospitals,and the murder of innocent women and children, where GPS coordinates were given to the IDF to protect those sheltering there from harm, is a war crime, period, end of discussion, and the IDF and the Israeli government should be held legally responsible.

Gaza reconstruction plan ‘risks putting UN in charge of Israeli blockade’

A UN-sponsored agreement for the reconstruction of Gaza is facing sharp criticism from senior international officials and NGOs, who say it will create a restrictive new monitoring regime for building materials that risks putting the UN in charge of a continuing Israeli blockade.

Oct 03 08:05

GAZANS STILL WAITING FOR THE LIGHTS TO COME ON

Israel has the capacity to stop power interruptions today. Sympathetic nations have the influence to insist that Israel does this. If international leadership cannot agree that providing electricity to the people of Gaza — a very achievable goal — should be an immediate priority, how can we possibly imagine that the larger political issues can be resolved anytime soon?

How the Israel Lobby Set Beto O'Rourke Right

It took only one wrong vote to teach a freshman Democrat from Texas how sensitive, and even wrathful, the Jewish community can be when it comes to Israel.

But the real story of what happened to Rep. Beto O’Rourke did not stop with the angry reaction he got when he cast one of only eight votes in Congress against special funding for Israel’s Iron Dome rocket defense system during the recent Gaza war.

What is notable is how quickly the carrot followed the stick.

It was almost a textbook case of how the establishment pro-Israel lobby works its magic — and a story not yet completed in early September, when The New Yorker magazine took note of what had happened to O’Rourke.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is time for Americans to decide if they wish to be ruled by a foreign power or not!

Israel Refuses U.S. Request for Field Hospital to Aid Ebola Fight

The U.S. ambassador to the UN, Samantha Powers, ever alert to opportunities to showcase Israel’s better qualities to the world (aka hasbara), suggested to the foreign ministry that it send a medical field hospital to Sierra Leone, to help that country combat the deadliest outbreak of Ebola the world has ever seen. Powers offered Israel a golden opportunity in the aftermath of the Gaza slaughter to show the world a kinder, gentler face.

This is precisely what Israel did in the aftermath of the Haiti earthquake when it parachuted a team into the country where it stayed for two weeks, named a new baby “Israel” and promptly left–after videotaping the enterprise for suitable exploitation in hasbara efforts. I called that escapade, The Zionization of Disaster Relief.

How Israel Out-Foxed US Presidents

After six years, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu has nearly weathered his chilly relationship with President Obama and can expect to coast through the next two years ignoring Obama’s appeals. But Obama is not the first U.S. president to be played by Israel, as Morgan Strong wrote in 2010.

Israel First, America’s National Security Second

In one of the United States Congress’ most recent displays of “Israel First” policy, 39 Representatives, all democrats, have requested that President Obama pardon Jonathan Pollard, an American convicted of spying for the State of Israel in 1987. Pollard is currently serving a life sentence for his crimes. According to American Muslims for Palestine:

Pollard, who was a civilian research analyst with high security clearance for the U.S. Navy, had agreed to spy for Israel for 10 years in exchange for more than $500,000. According to a January 1999 article in the New Yorker by Seymour Hersh, Pollard “betrayed elements of four major American intelligence systems.” Pollard caused extensive damage to U.S. intelligence and U.S. national security because of the nature of the highly sensitive documents he sold to Israel.

LAST NIGHT I HAD THE STRANGEST DREAM

I listened to Netanyahu utter the following words at the UN …

“I stand here before you today ashamed and mortified. I’m ashamed and mortified by the outcome of the brutal Israeli attack on Gaza. Ashamed and mortified by the alarming number of civilians my country killed, ashamed and mortified by the scope of devastation its unrestrained army spread. The Israeli army made a certain effort to reduce injury to civilians, but I know that this was no more than conscience-soothing measures, if any conscience still remains in Israel, and the rest is propaganda tricks.

But alas ...

It’s all a daydream

Netanyahu slams White House on settlements criticism

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hit back at the White House after Washington criticised Israeli plans to build thousands more settler homes in east Jerusalem, Israeli media reported on Thursday.

Israeli public radio quoted Netanyahu as telling US President Barack Obama in talks in Washington Wednesday to “study the facts and details before making statements” about the settlement plan.

Abbas resolution asks UN to give Israel till 2016 to withdraw to 1967 borders

The Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas, will seek a vote at the UN security council demanding that Israel ends its occupation of Palestinian territories and East Jerusalem – which began in 1967 – by November 2016.

The two-year deadline is contained in a draft resolution, drawn up by the Palestinians, which has been circulated among Arab states and some security council members.

A TERRORIST SPEAKS OF ISIS AND HAMAS IN ONE BREATH

The rise of ISIS and its rivalry with other groups does pose a challenge but in a less direct way than Netanyahu suggests. In a visit earlier this month to Jordan, I found Da’ash (as ISIS is known according to its Arabic acronym) on everybody’s lips regardless of an individual’s political affiliation. Those of an Islamist bent regarded the upstart as a challenge and a rival, not an ally.

Palestinian official likens Netanyahu to ISIS leader

A senior Palestinian official on Tuesday likened Benjamin Netanyahu to the leader of the Islamic State group, after the Israeli prime minister compared Hamas to the jihadist organisation.

"Netanyahu is trying to disseminate fear of the Islamic State led by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, but Netanyahu forgets that he himself leads the Jewish state," said Saeb Erakat, the Palestinians' chief negotiator in peace talks with Israel.

"He wants us to call Israel the Jewish state and supports terrorist settlers who kill, destroy and burn mosques and churches... like Baghdadi's men kill and terrorise," Erakat told AFP.

Netanyahu Will Request Pollard's Release in Meeting With Obama

A senior member of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's entourage to New York revealed to Arutz Sheva that Netanyahu intends to raise Jonathan Pollard's release in his meeting with US President Barack Obama on Wednesday.

Netanyahu is in New York for the UN General Assembly, which he addressed on Sunday. In meeting Obama, the source told Arutz Sheva that he will discuss the fate of Pollard, now in his 29th year of incarceration in an American cell on charges of spying for Israel.

"Prime Minister Netanyahu intends to raise the topic of Pollard in his meeting with the US president and to request his release, as has been done previous times," the source relayed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Jonathan Pollard stole US nuclear secrets and sold them to Israel, which traded them to the USSR in exchange for increased emigration quotas for Russian Jews to move to Israel. Had the US and USSR gone to nuclear war at that point, the US would have lost. Pollard's betrayal was equal to that of Julius and Ethyl Rosenberg's handing the USSR the secrets to the Atomic bomb, for which they were executed.

Israeli settlers take over 25 homes in E.Jerusalem: residents

Israeli settlers forcefully took over 25 apartments in Arab east Jerusalem Tuesday, residents and Palestinian leaders said, with the new occupants claiming they had legitimately bought the properties.

The incident led to clashes between Arab residents and Jewish settlers in the Silwan neighbourhood, which is right outside Jerusalem's Old City, near the flashpoint Al-Aqsa mosque compound.

It came after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas traded inflammatory accusations at the UN General Assembly in New York, making the prospects of peace look even bleaker.

Mohammed al-Khayat, whose family owns three apartments in one Silwan building, told AFP settlers had broken the locks on empty properties and then changed them.

"ISIL crisis" plays right into Zionists hands

Rahm Emanuel, President Obama's first Chief of Staff – who also served as Obama's Israeli Mossad handler – famously said: "You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before."

Individuals, groups, whole industries, even nations sometimes take advantage of crises and catastrophes. Big bankers, for example, love war because it forces governments to borrow vast sums of money at compound interest. Arms manufacturers also make huge profits. And the big government always gets bigger during wartime as it confiscates people's wealth and scales back their rights.

‘Join the invisible to make the impossible’: Israel’s Mossad now recruits agents online

Israeli intelligence has given up to modern trends and introduced an online questionnaire for would-be spies. Unlike the businesslike CIA or MI5 web draft campaigns, Israelis are luring volunteers with mystery halo always shrouding Mossad’s activities.

Mossad has become one of the last intelligence agencies in the world that vouchsafed to recruiting volunteer spies online, facilitating the induction process for those who always wanted to be a secret agent, but considered it unattainable.

Joe Biden and the Ghost of Shylock

Napoleon once famously remarked that “in politics, stupidity is not a handicap.” In few cases does this seem more apt than in that of Vice-President Joe Biden, perennial lapdog to the ADL’s Abraham Foxman. Biden has recently added to last year’s faux pas by recently committing the egregious sin of using the word “Shylocks” to describe mortgage lenders. The slip came in a speech to the Legal Services Corporation, which provides lawyers to Americans who could not afford them otherwise. In his remarks, the Vice-President described the experience of his son, Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, who was deployed for one year in Iraq:

People would come to him and talk about what was happening to them at home in terms of foreclosures, in terms of bad loans that were being — I mean, these Shylocks who took advantage of these women and men while overseas.

In a resolution issued on the sidelines of the 69th annual session of the UN General Assembly in New York on Friday, foreign ministers of the Group of 77 plus China for the first time explicitly rejected as unacceptable the imposition of unilateral economic sanctions against Iran.

Such sanctions would have adverse consequences on the development of the Iranian nation, the resolution said, calling for the immediate removal of the bans.

The illegal US-engineered sanctions on Iran have been imposed based on the accusation that Tehran is pursuing non-civilian objectives in its nuclear energy program.

On Israel’s little-known concentration and labor camps in 1948-1955

Much of the grim and murky circumstances of the Zionist ethnic cleansing of Palestinians in the late 1940s have gradually been exposed over time. One aspect – rarely researched or deeply discussed – is the internment of thousands of Palestinian civilians within at least 22 Zionist-run concentration and labor camps that existed from 1948 to 1955. Now more is known about the contours of this historical crime, due to the comprehensive research by renowned Palestinian historian Salman Abu Sitta and founding member of the Palestinian resource center BADIL Terry Rempel.

The facts are these.

The study – to be published in the upcoming issue of the Journal of Palestine Studies – relies on almost 500 pages of International Committee of the Red Cross’s (ICRC) reports written during the 1948 war, that were declassified and made available to the public in 1996, and accidentally discovered by one of the authors in 1999.

Netanyahu plays the blame game at the UN to avoid responsibility for Israeli human rights violations

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, speaking at the UN General Assembly today, presented a black and white, and upside down world view in which aggressors are victims and human rights violators deserve applause. Consistent with his now predictable approach to diplomacy, Netanyahu deployed fear-mongering and Islamophobic language to deflect attention from Israel’s aggression in Gaza this summer, and its ongoing occupation and illegal siege of Palestinian civilians.

FLASHBACK - The Lavon Affair: When Israel firebombed U.S. Installations to make it appear attacks were by ‘Muslim extremists,’ and how the US media cover it up

In their 1979 book, The Untold History of Israel, Israeli journalists Jacques Derogy and Hesi Carmel relate that in 1954 Israel’s army intelligence section conceived a plan to attack British personnel seconded to King Hussein’s government in Jordan. The purpose was to sour relations between Britain and Jordan as well as between both Jordan and Britain on the one hand and Egypt, which would be blamed for such attacks.

Shortly afterward, the same Israeli army intelligence organization activated two networks of Egyptian Jews first established in 1948. These young people had been recruited in Egypt, secretly trained in Israel, and then sent back to their homes in Cairo and Alexandria to await orders to carry out acts of sabotage in case of war between Egypt and Israel.

But since Israel’s seven-week-long onslaught on Gaza that robbed so many innocent lives and left 10,000 families homeless, he’s put diplomatic-speak on the shelf, as evidenced by his no holds-barred speech at the United Nations General Assembly last week.

Israel PM warns Iran greater threat than IS jihadists

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Monday at the United Nations that a nuclear-capable Iran would pose the gravest threat to the world, far outstripping the jihadist terror from Iraq and Syria.

"Make no mistake, ISIS must be defeated," Netanyahu told the UN General Assembly, referring to the Islamic State group.

"But to defeat ISIS and leave Iran as a threshold nuclear state power is to win the battle and lose the war."

Netanyahu spoke a week after US President Barack Obama took to the UN podium to appeal for international support for the US-led coalition firing air strikes to defeat the IS jihadists.

The prime minister took a swipe at Iran's "smooth-talking" President Hassan Rouhani, accusing him of seeking a deal on Tehran's nuclear program without scrapping any bomb-making capacity.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And so, Israel's nuclear capabilities are absolutely no threat to the world, Prime Minister Netanyahu!?

And IF the US government had any male attributes whatsoever, it would follow the letter of its own law, because under the Symington Amendment, the US is forbidden to give either any any money or military aid to a country which has either a nuclear weapons program or nuclear energy program, but refuses to become a signatory to the NNPT, and refuses to allow its nuclear sites to be inspected.

Israel is such a country.

The US government breaks its own laws with impunity.

So why should civilians believe, for a second, that they need to obey any laws Congress passes?!?

The stench of these double standards stinks to high heaven.

Most Americans believe the United States is giving too much foreign aid to Israel according to an online survey. The American Public Opinion on U.S. Aid to Israel (PDF) survey was fielded via Google Consumer Surveys between September 26-29, 2014 as a necessary follow-up to the release of the influential Chicago Council on Global Affairs 2014 report. Middle East analysts eagerly await the biennial Chicago Council survey results and its frank reflections of American views about foreign policy toward the region. Many are surprised by Chicago Council’s conclusions that 64 percent of Americans prefer not to take sides in the Israel-Palestine conflict and that 55 percent would oppose sending U.S. troops to protect Israel if it struck Iran.

In the talks, which will get underway in Cairo on Tuesday, Lidegaard wants to see Israel commit to ending its eight-year blockade of Gaza and stop its “illegal settlements”. The foreign minister is also calling on Hamas and other militant groups in Gaza to lay down their weapons.

If the talks fail to reach any long-term concessions from both sides, Lidegaard said that Denmark and the EU should adopt a tougher approach to Israel.

Turkey to send floating power plant to Gaza

Turkey plans to send a floating power station to Gaza to provide vital electricity to the troubled region.

Turkish Energy Minister Taner Yildiz said that the electricity generating vessel would be sent as soon as Gaza’s port facilities had been upgraded.Karadeniz powership

Why Israel pretends Mohammed isn’t there

But Yosef wasn’t actually the most popular baby name in Israel. That, as reported by Haaretz’s Ilan Lior last week, was in fact Mohammad.

One would be hard-pressed not to suspect racism. No distinctly-Arab baby name made it to the top 10 of popular baby names in Israel (Yosef and Adam are common among both Jews and Arab-Israelis), although Arabs account for 20% of Israel’s population.

Netanyahu to Push Iran as Bigger Threat Than Islamic State at UN

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will urge world leaders to keep up the pressure on Iran over its nuclear program even as they confront the threat of Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria.

Netanyahu, addressing the United Nations General Assembly today, will expand on his Sept. 22 remarks mocking “esteemed commentators in the West” who say “the major powers need to go easy on Iran’s nuclear program so that Iran will fight” Islamic State, according to aides familiar with his speech.

NY TIMES WHINES ABOUT EUROPEAN 'ANTI-SEMITISM'

Strike up the violins and break out the barf bags. The poor little defenseless Jews who, by the way, own the bloody West - lock, stock, and barrel - are concerned about a recent rise in European 'anti-Semitism' -TM. As evidence of Europe's possible "return to 1939" (palm to face,sigh), Sulzberger's Jew York Slimes cites a handful of isolated incidents which took place on this continent of 300 + million people:

A single pro-Gaza protester in France allegedly yelled, "Gas the Jews!"

A synagogue in Germany was allegedly attacked by a Molotov Cocktail.

A Swedish Jew was allegedly beaten up just for being Jewish.

If Israel can ignore the IAEA, why should anyone else listen?

With accusations relating to weapons of mass destruction having been a large part of the US pretext for invading Iraq and Iran now facing heavy pressure over similar claims, the double standard involving the Jewish state ­ which has steadfastly refused to sign the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) ­ has become too obvious to ignore any longer.

None of this has deterred the Israelis, though, from speaking out against the alleged ambitions of others. In fact, Israel has been at the forefront of countries demanding that the IAEA get tough with Iran. The Israelis are not at all embarrassed that Tehran is a signatory to the NPT and they are not; nor does it bother them that no one thinks the Islamic Republic has nuclear weapons, while the Jewish state is estimated by experts to possess something in the order of 200-300 warheads, not to mention a variety of air-, land- and sea-based delivery systems.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And let us not forget that Israel has been caught trying to sell clandestine nuclear weapons to other countries; the very activity the NNPT is supposed to prevent!

The European Anti-Semitism Hoax

It is simply unreasonable for Israel or world Jewry to expect that there will be no blowback from Israel’s actions in the world. Israel may not kill with impunity without paying a price for it. Again, this is not to justify Arab retaliation against Israel. But to regard such acts as originating in some ancient Islam-inspired blood feud is ridiculous.

FINDINGS OF THE RUSSELL TRIBUNAL ON CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY IN GAZA

The Russell Tribunal on Palestine’s Emergency Session on Israel’s Operation Protective Edge held yesterday in Brussels has found evidence of war crimes, crimes against humanity, crimes of murder, extermination and persecution and also incitement to genocide.

The Jury [1] reported: ‘The cumulative effect of the long-standing regime of collective punishment in Gaza appears to inflict conditions of life calculated to bring about the incremental destruction of the Palestinians as a group in Gaza.’

‘The Tribunal emphasises the potential for a regime of persecution to become genocidal in effect, In light of the clear escalation in the physical and rhetorical violence deployed in respect of Gaza in the summer of 2014, the Tribunal emphasises the obligation of all state parties to the 1948 Genocide Convention ‘to take such action under the Charter of the United Nations as they consider appropriate for the prevention and suppression of acts of genocide.’

Obama Blasts Brutality and Bullying, but Not by Israel

When U.S. President Barack Obama addressed the U.N. General Assembly Wednesday, he was outspoken in his criticism of Russia for bullying Ukraine, Syria for its brutality towards its own people, and terrorists of all political stripes for the death and destruction plaguing Iraq, Syria, Yemen and Somalia.

But as the New York Times rightly pointed out, Obama made only a “fleeting” reference to Israel and Palestine in his 47-minute speech to the world body.

Israeli Reservists “Operate” In US Colleges

Tel Aviv knows it can count on the ongoing financial, political and military support from the United States, but wants to get US campuses to topple any move that aims at divesting from Israeli and international companies that invest and benefit from the illegitimate Israeli occupation and its settlements.

Many reserve soldiers, especially those who graduated from American Universities, have been asked to “go back to school” in order to operate on preventing any move that calls for boycott, divestment and sanctions, and to try to encourage students’ support to Israel.

US criticizes Abbas' speech at UN General Assembly

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said in a statement on Friday that Mahmud Abbas’ speech, in which he said Israel conducted a “war of genocide” in Gaza, was “offensive”.

Israel unleashed aerial attacks on Gaza in early July and later expanded its military campaign with a ground invasion into the Palestinian territory. Over 2,130 Palestinians lost their lives and some 11,000 were injured.

"Abbas' speech today included offensive characterizations that were deeply disappointing and which we reject," read the statement.

Yeah, and Mussolini rejected accusations that the Nazis were committing atrocities, too! Didn't change the reality, did it?

Israel bars entry to Al-Aqsa mosque to Palestinians for third consecutive day

Israel on Friday imposed restrictions on the entry of Palestinian worshipers into the Al-Aqsa Mosque in annexed East Jerusalem for the third consecutive day.

Israeli police stepped up security around the mosque, deploying 2,000 troops in Jerusalem and erected roadblocks at entrances to Jerusalem’s Old City.

“Police prevent men under 50 and West Bankers from entering Al-Aqsa compound or Friday prayers,” Sheikh Azzam al-Khatib, director-general of the Organization for Muslim Endowments and Al-Aqsa Affairs, told the Turkish Anadolu Agency.

Jews celebrated the start of Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) on Wednesday evening, the first day of new Jewish year of 5775.

Even if Iraq had possessed weapons of mass destruction (which we now know they did not), and even if Iraq had the long range ICBMs to reach across the Atlantic with (which we know they did not), Iraq would still not have been a threat to the US because any attack with a weapon of mass destruction would be national suicide.

Peres to Plead for Pollard – Again

President Shimon Peres will meet Sunday with MKs Uri Ariel and Ronit Tirosh who will hand him a letter for US president Barak Obama asking for the release of convicted Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard.

The letter bears the signatures of 80 Israeli lawmakers. Peres's office told Arutz Sheva that the president working hand in hand with the leaders of the Freedom for Pollard Committee to maximize efforts to secure his release.

Last week, Peres bureau chief Efrat Duvdevani and other senior staffers made arrangements for the President to receive and deliver the letter.

The President's Office noted that Peres will next meet with Obama in June to formally request Pollard's release on behalf of the citizens of Israel.

Israeli forces attempt to arrest 2-year-old Palestinian child

Momen Shtayeh has seen and knows too much. There is a chance ? nay, a probability that due to witnessing the Israeli army's brutality and severe oppression in his village of Kufr Qaddoum, Momen might have grown up to be a warmongering Islamist.

Momen Shtayeh represents a threat to the security of the Israeli racist occupying state. Apparently, it is well known that due to his savvy nature, Momen has been involved in drawing up specialized blueprints to attack enemy bases.

So it all makes perfect sense that the most moral army in the world, the Israeli Defense Forces, the fourth strongest army, the upholders of the beacon of democracy and godly light, tried to arrest Mo?men on Monday, April 2nd.

The thing is, Momen is two-and-a-half years old.

CAN PEACE BECOME A REALITY USING THE SOCIAL MEDIA AS A TOOL?

In an address at the 2012 Launch startup conference in San Francisco, Shimon Peres, the president of Israel, told his audience that social media is crucial for the attainment of peace between Israel and Palestine. “The idea behind it is governments until now negotiated peace,” he said. “I think the best way to achieve peace is when the people negotiate peace directly by talking to each other.” Many of his constituents seem to agree, and the web-based community in that country has recently taken a collective stand for peaceful relations between the two long-time enemies.

UK warns of possible Easter terrorist attack in Nigeria

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am glad someone brought this up. As you know, tomorrow is Good Friday (not very good for the Rabbi on the cross, of course) and then Sunday we celebrate the day Jesus comes out of the tomb, sees his shadow and we get winter for another 6 weeks. Or something. Maybe he starts eating brains as revenge for all the time people eat his body. I can't keep this stuff straight.

But obviously, for those who would start a war between the Christians and the Muslims, these two holidays represent opportunities for highly symbolic false-flag attacks to trigger the war Netanyahu clearly is desperate to start. So, in between asking what rabbits have to do with Ishtar, be aware that there are very evil people who would use your religion against you.

Neve Gordon explains why Israel's plans to move entire communities of its own Bedouin citizens from their ancestral lands in the Negev and put them in townships will deprive them of their livelihood and land rights.

”I asked Abu Afash what he thinks will happen if they do not reach an agreement with the government. He paused for a moment and then replied that … ‘they will not put us on buses and move us, they will simply shut down the schools and wait. When we see we cannot send our children to school we will “willingly" move’.

“This is how forced relocation becomes voluntary and how Israel will likely represent it to the world.” (Neve Gordon)

Israel asks US for $700 million in military aid

The Iron Dome is designed to intercept rockets fired from a relatively short range, while the Magic Wand intercepts missiles fired from a range of at least 70km, including cruise missiles and missiles with ballistic warheads such as the Squd, Shihab and Sejil.

According to sources privy to the deal, Jerusalem and Washington are currently discussing the aid package, which if approved will allow Israel to equip its defense apparatus with four additional Iron Dome batteries and accelerate the completion of the Magic Wand system, which is still under development.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have an issue which is puzzling me, and something perhaps someone in the White House, State Department, or Pentagon could possibly address for me, and for the American people.

According to the Symington Amendment, it is illegal for the US government to give any financial or military aid to any country which has nuclear weapons, and refuses to be a signatory to the NNPT.

Israel refuses to become a signatory to the NNPT, and has a well-documented nuclear arsenal. So why is the US government continuing to fund Israel, both militarily and financially, when such aid is illegal, under US law?!?
