Une vérité à propos d’Israël que les nord-américains ne sont pas supposés savoir

L’aspect des nombreux juifs et Israéliens qui s’opposent aux agissements de l’État d’Israël est très occulté dans nos médias. Pourtant, plusieurs vont devoir faire de la prison en Israël parce qu’ils sont des objecteurs de conscience qui refusent de joindre l’armée IDF pour participer au génocide à petit feu des Palestiniens. Ils et elles sont très courageux.

Voici une courte vidéo qui vous les présente et ils ont besoin de notre aide pour signer leur lettre pour mettre de la pression sur leur gouvernement pour éviter d’aller en prison pour refuser d’aller tuer et se faire tuer. Il y a eu tellement de bonne initiatives pour la paix organisées de concert avec des gens du peuple palestinien et israélien sous oublier plusieurs organisations juives. Mais elles ont toutes été bazardé par le pouvoir sioniste en place. Quelqu’un ne veut pas la paix et en majorité, ce n’est pas le cas des deux populations qui ne demandent qu’à vivre ensemble en paix.

Contrary to Israeli war party propaganda in the US, not all Jews and not all Israelis support Israel’s Nazi-like conduct in the Occupied Territories.

This simple fact is probably the single most censored piece of news in the United States.

Here are some young people heading to prison because they won’t join the genocide.

Gaza et Israël: le droit légitime à la défense et quelques faits importants

APTOPIX MIDEAST ISRAEL PALESTINIANS

Le 27 décembre 2008 marque un jour funeste: Israël a entamé une offensive dévastatrice sur la bande de Gaza. Le motif avancé est le droit légitime à la défense, en réponse aux roquettes que les militants du Hamas lancent sur le territoire israélien. Jour important parce qu’il marque la pire attaque sur la Palestine depuis 40 ans, causant autour de 300 morts et plusieurs centaines de blessés. Des F-16 fournis par les États-Unis et des hélicoptères Apache ont largué plus de 100 missiles et bombes sur plusieurs quartiers de la bande de Gaza, qui est un des endroits ayant une des plus grande densité de population de la planète avec ses 1.5 million d’habitants vivants sur 360 kilomètres carré. Les opérations militaires israéliennes se poursuivent maintenant depuis quatre jours et ils préparent la prochaine phase, l’attaque directe sur le sol avec l’armée de terre et les chars d’assaut.

Tout semble être une réaction plus ou moins spontanée de la part d’Israël, en guise de défense. Mais en est-il réellement ainsi? Nous savons que les plans militaires pour l’invasion de la bande de Gaza furent tracés il y a plus de six mois, alors qu’Israël négociait un cessez-le-feu avec la Palestine. Un autre indice qui nous permet de confirmer que cette guerre a été planifiée et préparée depuis longtemps est cet effort de relation publique déployée la semaine passée pour convaincre les leaders du monde du bien-fondé de l’agression militaire de Gaza. Cet effort de “légitimation internationale” fut précédé de menaces en bonne et due forme envers les Palestiniens, qui eux, se préparaient à cette offensive.

MIDEAST ISRAEL PALESTINIANS

Israël soutient que c’est une attaque en réponse des roquettes que le Hamas lancent, mais il ne faudrait pas oublier que c’est Israël qui a brisé le cessez-le-feu le 5 novembre dernier, tuant six militants palestiniens, alors que l’attention médiatique était tournée vers la victoire présidentielle de Barack Obama, qui lui d’ailleurs, se refuse de commenter les attaques israéliennesvoilà pour le changement. Suite à cela, le Hamas répliqua avec une dizaine de roquettes. Qui peut prétendre recourir à la légitime défense?

Quelques faits à considérer

Israël est la quatrième puissance nucléaire au monde avec plus de 400 bombes nucléaires, chose connue depuis les années soixante, dans le temps de Nixon. Israël a tendance à jouer la victime, mais le rapport de force est simplement incomparable. Les roquettes du Hamas ont fait une vingtaine de victimes du côté d’Israël en huit ans, dont une victime seulement depuis la fin officielle du cessez-le-feu le 19 décembre, alors qu’en une journée seulement, Israël a tué plus de 296 personnes. On pourrait aussi se demander pourquoi Israël a décidé d’attaquer des postes de police, une université, des centres médicaux, des résidences et surtout, pourquoi avoir lancé les attaques vers midi, alors que les jeunes écoliers finissaient l’école et étaient route pour la maison.

Serait-ce que le but n’est pas réellement d’arrêter les tirs de roquettes – car en effet, comment croire que tuer autant de personnes ne va pas attiser encore plus de haine – mais bien de punir la population palestinienne pour ne pas avoir “bien” voté lorsqu’ils ont choisi le Hamas dans les dernières élections? Est-ce que Israël, les États-Unis et le Canada pensent que le Hamas va regarder la situation et se dire: “Wow, ce blitz de destruction est vraiment impressionnant, nous ferions mieux de reconnaitre Israël, de déposer nos armes, nous en remettre aux autorités, se faire emprisonner indéfiniment et soutenir un “processus de paix” américain au Moyen-Orient”.

Plusieurs pays ont rapidement condamné les sauvages attaques israéliennes: l’Angleterre, la Turquie, le Brézil, le Vénézuela, plusieurs pays d’Asie, la Russie, la France, la Chine; sans compter les nombreuses manifestations aux États-Unis, au Canada, dans plusieurs pays arabes, en Europe dont Londres et en Grèce ainsi que dans le reste du monde.

Robert Falk, le rapporteur spécial sur la situation des droits de l’homme de l’ONU, a accusé Israël d’avoir enfreint trois règlements de base des Conventions de Genève, tels que la punition collective, usage disproportionné de la force et usage de cette force de façon non-discriminatoire, tuant beaucoup de civils dont malheureusement des enfants. Des activistes israéliens de même que des journaux israéliens se questionnent sur l’ampleur des attaques sur Gaza. C’est qu’on ne pourra jamais assez souligner la différence à faire entre sionistes et les nombreux juifs qui ne partagent pas les mêmes valeurs et idées que ces premiers ainsi que les idéologies qui se reflètent dans la politique étrangère et intérieure de l’État d’Israël.

Les États-Unis ont appliqué leur veto contre la résolution de l’ONU qui demandait l’arrêt immédiat des attaques et de la violence dans la bande de Gaza et ont accusé le Hamas d’être responsable de la situation.

Est-ce que la venue des élections en Israël aurait de quoi à voir avec le déclenchement de ces attaques? Beaucoup de sionistes sont prêts à casser du Palestiniens pour démontrer qu’ils sont des durs à cuire.

Les origines du Hamas

Il faut savoir qu’à l’origine, le Hamas fut créé avec l’aide du Mossad israélien, dans le but d’affaiblir le mouvement pour la libération de la Palestine de Yasser Arafat en le divisant. Bien que le Hamas ait été démocratiquement élu par les Palestiniens, les États-Unis et Israël ont décidé de fermer la porte à toutes discussions et processus de paix.

g-massacro21Les cibles des attaques de l’armée israélienne ne sont pas que des militants du Hamas, mais aussi plusieurs postes de police et autres infrastructures publiques. Donc, si le but était vraiment de faire cesser les attaques de roquettes sur Israël, pourquoi cibler les forces de sécurité palestiniennes qui luttent contre elles? Le but certain est de renverser le gouvernement Hamas démocratiquement élu par les Palestiniens et le peuple lui-même. Mais serait-ce aussi qu’on cherche à radicaliser et affaiblir une population pour justifier un état de guerre permanent ne servant que les fanatiques sionistes au grand détriment des nombreux Palestiniens et des Juifs qui veulent la paix? À se dépêcher avant qu’Obama entre en fonction et ainsi diminuer ses chances d’influencer le processus de paix dans la région en le plaçant devant un fait accompli?

Punition collective et état de siège

L’aspect de punition collective se reflète aussi dans la nature du siège qui fut imposé à la Palestine depuis des mois par Israël.

Ce siège de la bande Gaza qui viole délibérément toutes les lois internationales, créant de facto la plus grande prison à ciel ouvert du monde où se retrouvent un million et demi de civils prisonniers de l’armée israélienne, s’est traduit par un blocus presque total de nourriture, carburant, médicaments, équipement scolaire, vêtements et d’électricité. L’aéroport et le port ont été détruits avant même d’avoir jamais pu fonctionner. Il est interdit de pêcher. Seuls quelques bateaux affrétés par des militants ont pu forcer le blocus. Évidemment que la situation n’a pas pris de temps à se transformer en une catastrophe humanitaire avec des hôpitaux sans électricité, des égouts qui remontent dans les rues avec le lot de maladies que cela amène et des problèmes de malnutrition qui a poussé les gens à devoir manger de l’herbe pour survivre. Les journalistes ont vite été interdit d’entrer sur la bande de Gaza pour rapporter sur la situation. Tout peuple assiégé a le droit de résister à l’oppression.

La sécurité va de pair avec la liberté. Ainsi, ni les Palestiniens et encore moins les Juifs ne seront plus en sécurité avec de telles politiques.

Aspects historiques

Les roquettes et les attentats suicides ne sont pas pardonnables, mais elles représentent les derniers outils de résistance d’un peuple occupé militairement depuis 60 ans et qui a perdu plus de 80% de son territoire depuis la création d’Israël en 1948. Ces cartes suffiront pour vous convaincre de ces faits. Des millions de réfugiés qui furent forcés de quitter leurs terres ancestrales n’ont jamais eu de droit de retour depuis.

palestine_olmert_plan_maps

Israël est le seul pays au monde qui ne se reconnait pas de frontières durables. C’est que cela pose un sérieux problème pour reconnaitre un pays dont on ne connait pas clairement les limites. Depuis sa création, Israël a demandé à ses voisins de reconnaitre son droit inconditionnel d’existence alors qu’ils refusent encore à ce jour de reconnaitre l’état palestinien.

2981945370_b92d071aa21Il y a ce mur qui a été construit tout autour de la Palestine, au nom de la sécurité, la divisant en de multiples enclaves, entrecoupées de plus de 600 points de surveillance (checkpoints), mais qui a eu le soin d’être construit de façon à envelopper les colonies illégales en territoire palestinien. Ceci a eu pour effet de voler de larges portions du territoire palestinien parce que ce mur a été construit, à plusieurs endroits, loin de la ligne verte de 1967, à l’intérieurs des terres palestiniennes. Pour ce faire, des milliers de maisons de Palestiniens ont été détruites, avec bien souvent quelques minutes d’avertissement seulement pour évacuer les lieux.

Les conséquences de la construction du mur de séparation sur la ville de Jérusalem sont confirmées par un rapport des chefs de mission de l’Union européenne à Jérusalem-Est. Ce texte, relève, parmi d’autres, certains axes de la politique israélienne dans la ville sainte :

– le presque achèvement de la barrière autour de Jérusalem-Est, loin de la ligne verte (ligne de cessez-le-feu de 1967) ;

– la construction et l’expansion des colonies illégales, par des entités privées et par le gouvernement israélien, à l’intérieur et autour de Jérusalem-Est ;

– la démolition des maisons palestiniennes construites sans permis (qui sont presque impossibles à obtenir)Source

Le racisme prend des formes étonnantes: Un bon nombre de villes, des autoroutes et écoles sont uniquement pour les juifs. Les Palestiniens ont des plaques d’immatriculation et cartes d’identité de différentes couleurs que les juifs. Les citations haineuses de la part d’importants personnages israéliens et sionistes abondent.

Ceci est donc le coeur du problème. Un peuple occupé militairement depuis 60 ans vivant à l’intérieur d’enclaves qui rendent impossible toute souveraineté et espoir d’avoir un État viable et reconnu par Israël. La cause des violations des droits humains en territoire palestinien provient des attaques et de l’occupation militaire continuelle d’Israël depuis sa création.

Voici ce que David Ben Gurion a lui-même a déclaré à ce propos:

“If I were an Arab leader, I would never sign an agreement with Israel. It is normal; we have taken their country. It is true God promised it to us, but how could that interest them? Our God is not theirs. There has been Anti – Semitism, the Nazis, Hitler, Auschwitz, but was that their fault ? They see but one thing: we have come and we have stolen their country. Why would they accept that?” — David Ben Gurion (the first Israeli Prime Minister) Quoted by Nahum Goldmann in Le Paraddoxe Juif (The Jewish Paradox), pp121.

APTOPIX MIDEAST ISRAEL PALESTINIANS

Antisémitisme

Avant que quiconque se fasse accuser d’antisémitisme en critiquant les politiques et agissements d’Israël (qui contrôle réellement cet État?) – qui ne sont pas endossés par plusieurs juifs d’ailleurs – nous devons retourner à la vraie signification de ce qui est sémite. La plupart des Juifs vivants en Israël sont de descendance Ashkenazi, qui eux, n’ont aucun lien génétique avec les Hébreux bibliques. Lorsque les sionistes ont mis en marche leur plan pour établir un état par force, dicté par leur enseignement du Talmud, ce qui va à l’encontre de la religion juive venant du Torah, ils ont eu besoin de créer un mythe justifiant l’existence du peuple Juif d’Israël pour prendre une partie du territoire des Palestiniens qui eux, tout comme les juifs arabes, SONT des descendants génétiques des Hébreux bibliques. Les Israéliens savent cela et ils ont essayé activement d’étouffer les évidences scientifiques pointant dans cette direction. L’ironie étant de voir ces Khazars convertis, qui ne sont pas de descendance sémite, accuser n’importe qui critique les agissements d’Israël d’antisémite. Les sionistes ne sont pas nécessairement juifs, comme le futur vice-président des États-Unis, Joe Biden, le prouve.

Conclusion

Pourquoi est-ce si difficile de simplement voir tous les pays du monde obéir aux même lois et conventions internationales? Pourquoi est-ce que Israël peut commettre 51 violations des cessez-le-feu sans être réprimandé par la communauté internationale? Pourquoi est-ce que des rabbins peuvent demander publiquement à ce que tous les Palestiniens, hommes, femmes, enfants et mêmes leurs bêtes soient tués, ou des politiciens proposer que les Palestiniens soient chassés de leur territoire? Pourquoi permettre à un État de défier plus de 100 résolutions de l’ONU et de posséder des armes de destruction massive comme des bombes atomiques clandestines sans aucune conséquence?

N’y a-t-il pas ce deux poids deux mesures intolérable dans toute cette histoire?

Beaucoup de questions lancées en espérant qu’elles trouvent des réponses. Il est primordial que les lois et traités internationaux s’appliquent à tous les États de façon uniforme, sinon, il n’y aura pas de loi du tout.

En terminant, je vous suggère cette excellente émission de radio web sur laquelle vous pourrez entendre votre humble serviteur en entrevue avec l’organisation Palestiniens et Juifs Unis (PAJU) pour mieux comprendre la question palestinienne dans toute sa dimension:

Gaza&Israël: Tous les articles importants concernant la situation

Voici 45 pages de liens vers les articles les plus importants du moment pour comprendre dans toute sa complexité le drame qui s’y déroule. L’article qui suit et intitulé « Gaza et Israël: le droit légitime à la défense et quelques faits importants » est une synthèse en français de toutes ces informations qui, malheureusement pour certains, sont majoritairement en anglais. Restez branchés pour la suite des nouvelles.


URGENT! Israeli Navy Attacking Civilian Mercy Ship! TAKE ACTION IMMEDIATELY!

The Dignity, a Free Gaza boat on a mission of mercy to besieged Gaza, is being attacked by the Israeli Navy in international waters. The Dignity has been surrounded by at least half-a-dozen Israeli warships. They are firing live ammunition around the Dignity, and one of the warships has rammed the civilian craft causing an unknown amount of damage. Contrary to international maritime law, the Israelis are actively preventing the Dignity from approaching Gaza or finding safe haven in either Egypt or Lebanon.

Webmaster’s Commentary:

At last report, the Israeli Navy rammed the Dignity and she is taking on water fast. Dignity is trying to make landfall in Lebanon.

No other information available at this time.


Israel Is Doomed!

Israel is doomed because it is run by psychotic idiots who are bent on a « Greater Israel » strategy. Zionist religious fanatics who somehow think that by becoming like the White Anglo Saxon Protestants (W.A.S.P.s) who nearly wiped out the Jews in Europe in World War Two, by adopting the « Let Someone else suffer now » philosophy Zionists think they will be allowed to succeed in their expansionist plans.


FLASHBACK: Fake rocket attack

On the afternoon of February 7, rockets rained down on the northern Israeli town of Nahariya, and were immediately described by Israeli police as Katyusha rockets fired by Hezbollah guerrillas in Lebanon.

Later in the same day, the attack was described as the result of ‘human error’ involving a failed test by an Israeli weapons manufacturer in the area.

Webmaster’s Commentary:

As Israel screams that they are being attacked by someone, remember that Israel has a habit of shooting missiles at itself to justify attacking their neighbors.


Remember the rockets found in Lebanon pointed at Israel last week?


Gaza conflict enters third day

For a third successive day Israeli planes have launched bombing raids on Gaza and according to Palestinian officials the number of dead has risen to around 300.


View From a Palestinian Leader: Palestine’s Guernica and the Myths of Israeli Victimhood

The bloodiest single day in Palestine since the War of 1967 is far from over following on Israel’s promised that this is ‘only the beginning’ of their campaign of state terror. At least 290 people have been murdered thus far, but the body count continues to rise at a dramatic pace as more mutilated bodies are pulled from the rubble, previous victims succumb to their wounds and new casualties are created by the minute.

What has and is occurring is nothing short of a war crime, yet the Israeli public relations machine is in full-swing, churning out lies by the minute.


FLASHBACK – NOVEMBER 5TH, 2008 – Six Hamas activists killed during Israeli raids in Gaza Strip

Webmaster’s Commentary:

Gaza and HAMAS had honored the cease fire agreement until November 5th 2008. While Americans were distracted by the Obama election, Israel launched an unprovoked attack into Gaza killing six members of the HAMAS government.

Following this attack, HAMAS announced that the cease fire was (obviously) no longer in effect. Israel’s PR campaign continues to insist ( supported by the White House) that HAMAS is to blame for the escalation of violence.

Webmaster’s Commentary:

‘Israeli air strikes represent massive violations of international law’

The Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip represent severe and massive violations of international humanitarian law as defined in the Geneva Convention, both in regard to the obligations of an occupying power and in the requirements of the laws of war.


Robert Fisk: Leaders lie, civilians die, and lessons of history are ignored

We’ve got so used to the carnage of the Middle East that we don’t care any more – providing we don’t offend the Israelis. It’s not clear how many of the Gaza dead are civilians, but the response of the Bush administration, not to mention the pusillanimous reaction of Gordon Brown, reaffirm for Arabs what they have known for decades: however they struggle against their antagonists, the West will take Israel’s side. As usual, the bloodbath was the fault of the Arabs – who, as we all know, only understand force.


Israel, a Morally Bankrupt State led by Psychopaths

The stinking smell of a conspiracy, a disaster, a political plan is behind the Israeli “war” against the population of Gaza. The Israeli military “Operation Cast Lead” did not begin as a result of adduced rocket-spiegel“self defense” against Palestinian rockets, which appear to be made and shot for the most part in Israel itself or distributed by the employees of Shin Bet Chief Yuval Diskin, the Israeli intelligence system, to collaborators within the Palestinian resistance.


The Politics of the Gaza Massacre

On the Israeli front, elections loom large. The current Israeli government is enormously unpopular, and – with polls showing a massive swing to the right – this latest « incursion » is its last attempt to shore up their sagging power base. The rightist surge in Israel has been building for a long time, with the settler movement gaining momentum and the Likud Party likely the chief beneficiary – in which case there will be no chance of a peaceful settlement of the Palestinian question, no matter how evenhanded President Barack Obama turns out to be.

“All this was, and is, disproportionate, indiscriminate mass violence in violation of international law,” Kucinich said in a statement. “Israel is not exempt from international law and must be held accountable.”


Israel considers ground attack as it mobilises more troops

Israel Warns America Yet Again–There’s “Hell To Pay” For Not Attacking Iran

Speaking recently at a conference at the Institute for National Security Studies at Tel Aviv University, Israel’s Minister of Defense Ehud Barak sternly warned his audience (and the world at large) that “If Iran acquires a nuclear weapon, it could try to attack the United States,” specifying that if the Islamic Republic built “even a primitive nuclear weapon” similar to the one used in “destroying Hiroshima” that she would “not hesitate to load it on a ship, arm it with a detonator operated by GPS and sail it into a vital port on the east coast of North America.”


Israel prepares to wipe Gaza Strip off Earth’s face

Israel prepares to continue the military actions despite numerous protests from the international community. A ground operation in the Gaza Strip may start in the next few days. Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni said that her country had no choice. “We do what we have to do to protect our citizens,” Livni said.

Israel bombs Gaza in ‘all-out war’ on Hamas

Israel bombed Gaza for a third day on Monday in an « all-out war » on Hamas, as tanks massed on the border and the Islamists fired deadly rockets to retaliate for the blitz that has killed nearly 320.

‘Israel Has Lost Its Right To Exist’

An article in a leading Norwegian newspaper last weekend lambasted Israel and Judaism and said Israel has lost its right to exist in its present form.

Entitled « God’s chosen people, » the article by author Jostein Gaarder in Aftenposten is raising a storm in Norway. Gaarder, author of the book « Sophie’s World, » links the Israel Defense Forces’ acts in Lebanon to Jewish history and foresees the coming dismantling of the state as it exists today, with the Jews becoming refugees.


Israeli assault targets symbols of Hamas power

Death toll reaches 315, including 7 children, in retaliation for rocket attacks.

Israeli defense minister Ehud Barak told Israel’s parliament in a special session that Israel was not fighting the residents of Gaza « but we have a war to the bitter end against Hamas and its branches. »

Webmaster’s Commentary:

BULL BISCUITS! Israel is obliterating Gazan Palestinians as a way of obliterating Hamas.

But I would warn the Israeli politicians and military to be careful what they wish for. Immoral acts against a starving, ill population may yet have a way of going spectacularly, and unimaginably, wrong, in spite of all the people you have killed, and all the physical damage you have created. so far.

It’s not your babies.
Ethnic cleansing is not a ‘sin’ as long as the ‘chosen ones’ of Israel do it.


CAPTURED ISRAELI SOLDIER AMONG INJURED IN ISRAELI BLITZKRIEG

Army Radio reported Monday that captive Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit had been wounded in one of the IAF raids on the Gaza Strip, quoting an unnamed Hamas source as saying that the organization intended to safeguard him.

It said Hamas sources had confirmed an Egyptian television report on that Shalit, kidnapped in Israeli territory outside the Strip in June, 2006 by Hamas and other militant Palestinian groups, was injured.

Webmaster’s Commentary:

Gilad Shalit was captured (Israel calls it « kidnapped ») right after Israel shelled the beach at Gaza in an unprovoked attack that killed a family on a picnic. HAMAS promised to keep Shalit alive and well as long as Israel stopped shelling the Gaza beaches.


Gilad Atzmon – Eine Kleine Nacht Murder: How Israeli Leaders Kill for their People’s Votes

In order to grasp the latest devastating murderous Israeli expedition in Gaza one must deeply comprehend the Israeli identity and its inherent hatred towards anyone who fails to be Jewish and a hatred against Arabs in particular. This hatred is imbued in the Israeli curriculum, it is preached by political leaders and implied by their acts, it is conveyed by cultural figures, even within the so-called ‘Israeli Left’.


Anger, sadness over fabricated Holocaust story

« Herman Rosenblat and his wife are the most gentle, loving, beautiful people, » literary agent Andrea Hurst said Sunday, anguishing over why she, and so many others, were taken by Rosenblat’s story of love born on opposite sides of a barbed-wire fence at a concentration camp.

« I question why I never questioned it. I believed it; it was an incredible, hope-filled story. »

Webmaster’s Commentary:

Relinked because so many people keep sending this to me.

As for the « other kind » of emails screaming that I am an anti-Semite (« Rivero » is a Sephardic name, BTW), yes there is a real reason to post all these articles about holocaust books that turn out to be fakes, including the above, « Fragments: Memories of a Childhood », « Painted Bird », and « Misha ». Even that venerable icon of holocaust worship, « The Diary of Anne Frank » has come into doubt, both because of the ball point pen (unavailable to Anne during the war) used to write portions of the original manuscript, and the emergence of records of a lawsuit by a ghost writer hired by Otto Frank to turn the pieces of legitimate writings by his daughter into a salable propaganda commodity.

The point is this. In the middle of all these revealed hoaxes, there seems to be a total dearth of memoirs that can survive a close examination. Elie Weisel’s book has come under suspicion of being fictional. Emilie Schindler, Oskar’s widow, said that the film « Schindler’s List » was filled with lies. And the famous sketch of three executed Jews by Simon Wiesenthal was revealed as having been traced from a photograph of three German soldiers shot for desertion!

Right now, with Tzipi Livni insisting that Israel is not killing civilians in Gaza even as the bodies of children pile up, it is clear that Israel has a very tenuous relationship to truth. And Israel gets by with their by-way-of-deceptions only because good people will not point out the lies.


ISRAEL: No civilian casualties in Gaza!

Webmaster’s Commentary:

According to Israel, this is NOT a civilian casualty.


THE JEWISH THIRD REICH

The pornographic mass slaughter perpetrated by Israel in the Gaza Strip on Saturday, 27 December, once again reveals the Nazi nature of the Zionist state.

It also underscore the genocidal nature and brutal ugliness of the Zionist mentality, a mentality based on and shaped by murder, bullying, coercion, aggression, brutality and criminality.

Furthermore, it shows that Israel is capable, both mentally and physically, of carrying out a real holocaust against the Palestinian people and other peoples of the Middle East.


Protests Reported in Several Arab States Over the Israeli Attacks on Gaza

Protests have been reported in Lebanon, Yemen, Sryia, Jordan, Iraq and Qatar. The largest reached one million people, according to officials in Yemen.

In Jordan, at least 30 MPs burned the Israeli flag under the parliament dome while in session on Sunday, while calling on their king to fire the Israeli ambassador from Amman. Meanwhile, in Lebanon, hundreds of Palestinian refugees and Lebanese held a rally at the United Nations office in central Beirut.

Webmaster’s Commentary:

The the leaders of the world should, collectively, revoke the diplomatic credentials of every Israeli diplomat in their country and send them packing.

Otherwise, they are enablers to genocide.

Israel bombs university in Gaza

Israeli air force jets have bombed the Islamic University in the Gaza Strip, a significant cultural symbol for Hamas.

Witnesses in Gaza said they saw six separate air strikes on the Islamic University just after midnight, followed by smoke and flames, Associated Press (AP) news agency reported.

Webmaster’s Commentary:

Bombing a university is tantamount to bombing the future of Palestine, no matter which political party the university seemed to endorse.


Israel mounts PR campaign to blame Hamas for Gaza destruction

Israel has mounted a public relations campaign to convince international hearts and minds that Hamas is to blame for the death and destruction they are seeing on their television screens.

Stung by the wave of international criticism earlier this year when Israel invaded Gaza to stop militants firing rockets, in an operation dwarfed by its current attack, Israel decided to go on the offensive.

The Hanukkah Massacre in GAZA. The Sacrificial Lamb to the Israeli-American-Arab Interests

As of this writing 284 Palestinians have been murdered, over 700 injured (many in critical condition); most are innocent civilians living in the most densely populated area in the world—Gaza. This is the highest one day total of dead and injured by Israel’s terrorism since its founding in 1948.


Protest in London over Gaza being bombed

Violent confrontations broke out at the Israeli Embassy in London today as up to 1,500 protesters against Israel’s Gaza campaign gathered in a vociferous demonstration.

Campaign supporters, Palestinians and British Muslims stood on the pavement of High Street Kensington, west London, and chanted in unison: “Five, six, seven, eight – Israel is a terror state.”


Dignity Leaves on Emergency Mission

More than two-hundred, maybe three-hundred people have died in Gaza under the shelling of Israeli military jets. Hundreds are injured. This Sunday, the killing activities have continued. The wall between Gaza and Egypt has now been torn down by Gazans, according to international Human Rights observers witnessing and documenting the Israeli attacks on Gaza. Millions of people in the world are shocked, hurt, and angry about this « Guernica in Gaza », as Vik calls it (see below). In Guernica, the civil population was punished for its democratic elections.


Israel targets pharmacy in Rafah

Shortly before 7:00am local time, yet another Israeli missile strike hit the residential neighbourhood of Hi Alijnina in the southern Gaza town of Rafah.

This time a pharmacy was targeted, totally destroying the building and causing severe damage to surrounding homes. Electricity lines were torn down during the blast and the street was littered with medicines. This footage was filmed within minutes of the attack as fire fighters battled to control the blaze. Shocked residents poured into the streets, some still wearing pyjamas.


Disinformation, secrecy and lies: How the Gaza offensive came about

Israel Masses Troops, Tanks For Possible Ground Invasion

Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni says there are no plans to occupy Gaza, after two days of airstrikes in the Palestinian territory and the callup of 6,500 Israeli reserve soldiers.

Webmaster’s Commentary:

« Israel has no plan to invade the Gaza Strip in its efforts to end the continuing rocket attacks from the Hamas-ruled enclave, President Shimon Peres said in an interview published Saturday. »

We know when Israeli politicians lie: they open their mouthes, and they speak.

Hundreds of activists in Tel Aviv protest IAF strike in Gaza

According to the protesters, Israel’s military action in Gaza does not protect Israeli citizens or provide them security.

« No one can tell us that slaughtering the citizens of Gaza is meant to protect the citizens of Sderot and Ashkelon, » said Matan Kaminer, a student who participated in the march.

Webmaster’s Commentary:

The attack on Gaza has made the world MORE dangerous for Jews. But that is what the government of Israel wants! If Jews of the world are safe, there is no need for the Israeli government.


Today I end my support of Israel

I’m Jewish and descendant of holocaust survivors. Moreover, I’ve been a Zionist all of my life. I went to a Zionist school, I was active in Zionist youth groups. I’ve always been a fervent supporter of Israel as a refuge for Jews around the world who seek a place to exercise their traditions and embrace their identity in peace.

I sang the Israeli anthem in the train rails of Aushwitz-Birkenau and I pledged to fight every day of my life to make sure the savage crimes that had taken place there would never happen again. Every year I pledged: Never Again. Remember and Never forget.


Top Israeli Newspaper Raises Doubts About Gaza Attack

In the usual process, the U.S. government, media here – and most liberal bloggers – are silent or playing down questions about whether Israel overreacted in its massive air strikes on Gaza, while the foreign press, and even Haaretz in Israel, carries more balanced accounts.


Violent protests at Israeli Embassy in London

Violent confrontations broke out at the Israeli Embassy in London today as up to 1,500 protesters against Israel’s Gaza campaign gathered in a vociferous demonstration.

As the standoff continued, a security guard at the nearby Royal Garden Hotel said police had been rapidly outnumbered and handled the situation “terribly”.

Webmaster’s Commentary:

It might just be that Israel has misjudged the degree of public anger over this latest atrocity.

And as a result, the world’s Jewish people are in far more danger than they were a week ago, contrary to Israel’s professed desire to make the world safe for Jews.

Across Mideast, thousands protest Israeli assault

Crowds of thousands swept into the streets of cities around the Middle East on Sunday to denounce Israel’s air assault on Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip.

From Lebanon to Iran, Israel’s adversaries used the weekend assault to marshal crowds into the streets for noisy demonstrations. And among regional allies there was also discontent: The prime minister of Turkey, one of the few Muslim countries to have relations with Israel, called the air assault a « crime against humanity. »

Several of Sunday’s protests turned violent. A crowd of anti-Israel protesters in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul became a target for a suicide bomber on a bicycle.

Webmaster’s Commentary:

Think carefully about that last one. A suicide bomber targeting anti-Israel protesters? Does that not tell you who the suicide bombers have been working for all along?


NOT ALL ISRAELIS ARE OUT FOR BLOOD

No organization called for the demonstration – but more than a thousand men and women gathered spontaneously in order to protest in front of the Ministry of Defense in Tel-Aviv, only a few hours after the murderous Air Force attack on the Gaza strip started.


Why there were rockets. How to explain things to totally ignorant Americans.

How would America and Americans react if we were under a foreign military occupation. Them saying it was the will of their god to do it would hardly find an accepting ear. Oh « god » told you to kill my children and demolish my house, oh well in that case it’s oK…. Not going to happen.


The Hanukah Massacre on Gaza–Judaism in its Finest Hour

“When the LORD your God brings you into the land you are to possess and casts out the many peoples living there, you shall then slaughter them all and utterly destroy them…You shall make no agreements with them nor show them any mercy…You shall destroy their altars, break down their images, cut down their groves and burn their graven images with fire. For you are a holy people unto the LORD thy God and He has chosen you to be a special people above all others upon the face of the earth…” –Book of Deuteronomy, 7:1-8


Civilian houses and medical centres targeted by Israeli air-strikes

Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip have been ongoing through the night, with civilian houses and medical centres being targeted by Israeli air-strikes.

Last night thousands of Palestinian residents of Gaza were subjected to calls from the Israeli Ministry of Defence saying that « any house that has guns or weapons will be targeted next without further warning or any announcement »

Webmaster’s Commentary:

The IMD’s announcement about « any house that has guns or weapons will be targeted next without further warning or any announcement » can be translated as follows;

« No matter if your house has guns or not, it has become fair game for complete destruction, as well as the destruction of any and all inhabitants ».

Israeli troops near Gaza, airstrikes continue

Israeli warplanes pressing one of Israel’s deadliest assaults ever on Palestinian militants dropped bombs and missiles on a top security installation, smuggling tunnels and dozens of other targets across Hamas-ruled Gaza on Sunday.

Israel called up 6,500 reserve soldiers and moved tanks, infantry and armored units to the Gaza border for a possible ground invasion. Some 280 Palestinians died in the first 24 hours of the campaign against Gaza rocket squads.

Webmaster’s Commentary:

Israel broke the cease fire November 5th with a raid that killed 6 Palestinians.


Analysis: The Hamas army

« Hamas has learned a lot from Hizbullah and has adopted many of the Lebanese group’s tactics which were used successfully against the IDF in the Second Lebanon War, » one IDF official said.

Since Israel’s unilateral disengagement from the Gaza Strip in the summer of 2005, Hamas has created a military with a clear hierarchy, led by Hamas « chief » Ahmed Ja’abri.


Gaza residents breach Egypt border as IAF bombs 40 smuggling tunnels

Gaza residents on Sunday breached the border fence with Egypt in several places and hundreds have crossed the frontier prompting Egyptian border guards to open fire, said officials and witnesses on both sides of the border.


Gaza’s desperate hospitals overwhelmed by casualties

Two of Gaza’s highest-ranking security officials are among the victims of Israeli airstrikes. Medical personnel scramble to treat the wounded in facilities left low on supplies by a blockade.


EYEWITNESS REPORT OF THE GAZA MASSACRE

The Israeli bombings is flagrantly violating all laws which call for protecting civilians. This was so obvious from the number of civilian casualties. The brutal bombings happened in time of school children were going home after a normal day of study. A considerable number of children were killed, but medical sources didn’t announce official numbers in this respect. Identities of killed people are still unknown but few ones.

Israeli Airstrikes on Gaza Strip Imperil Obama’s Peace Chances

Israel has been warning for weeks that it would not tolerate regular rocket attacks launched from Hamas-controlled territory in the Gaza Strip, and it has been laying the groundwork for a new offensive with the collapse this month of a shaky six-month cease-fire. Still, the ferocity and scope of yesterday’s Israeli attacks, which killed at least 225, appeared to stun Western governments and analysts. Arab countries condemned Israel, and Saudi Arabia urged the United States to intervene to stop the attacks.

Webmaster’s Commentary:

Western governments and analysts, had they been reading this site once in a while, would not have been « stunned » at all about either the timing, or the ferocity, of this assault.

They would have understood completely that the desired outcomes of the Israeli siege of Gazan Palestinians, through malnutrition and disease, was simply to « soften them up » for « the kill » of an Israeli military assault.

This is obvious as to hardly be worth repeating, except some people didn’t get it the first time they saw this phrase here. It was more than a metaphor: it was a truism about what the Israeli government wanted to accomplish.

They would have understood that Israel would do this kind of action right before Obama’s inauguration to completely destroy any possibility of a viable peace deal going forward.

What Israel really wants is territory, not peace,and territory by any means necessary; if it really had wanted peace, it could have accomplished that a long time ago.

Grief and fear in Gaza

The man said he had been going to work in a clinic when he heard the sound of planes and turned back. But after that he cannot remember what happened – he just woke up injured, with wounds in his hand, leg and stomach.

The teenage boy had blood on his head and was in a lot of pain. He could not even remember his own name. « I don’t even know where I am, » he said to me.

I saw a body too, in the emergency room, with a stick of wood stuck through the chest.


ISRAELI CARNAGE LEAVES HUNDREDS OF VICTIMS

More than 230 Palestinians were killed and several hundred others injured Saturday when Israeli warplanes and combat helicopters carried out massive aerial bombing attacks targeting numerous police and security-related buildings throughout the Gaza Strip.

Palestinian officials and spokespersons in both Gaza and the West Bank used epithets such “carnage,” “massacres,” and “war of extermination” to describe the deadly Israeli raids.

The intensity of the bombing, say Gaza citizens, were unprecedented in living memory.


Iran orders all Muslims to defend Palestinians against Israeli Gaza raids

Iran‘s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei issued a religious decree to Muslims around the world on Sunday, ordering them to defend Palestinians against Israel’s attacks on Gaza, state television said.

« All Palestinian combatants and all the Islamic world’s pious people are obliged to defend the defenceless women, children and people in Gaza in any way possible. Whoever is killed in this legitimate defense is considered a martyr, » state television quoted Khamenei as saying in a statement.

Webmaster’s Commentary:

Israel broke the cease fire on November 5th (while Americans were distracted celebrating Obama’s victory) with an unprovoked attack that killed 6 Palestinians.


‘Little Baghdad’ in Gaza – bombs, fear and rage

There are many corpses and wounded, every moment another casualty is added to the list of the dead, and there is no more room in the morgue.

Relatives search among the bodies and the wounded in order to bring the dead quickly to burial. A mother whose three school-age children were killed, and are piled one on top of the other in the morgue, screams and then cries, screams again and then is silent.

Israel mounts third day of Gaza raids


Six Hamas activists killed during Israeli raids in Gaza Strip

The death toll in the Gaza Strip rose to six on Wednesday morning after another Al-Qassam Brigades fighter died of wounds sustained in an Israeli airstrike near Khan Younis.

Five Hamas Al-Qassam Brigades activists were killed earlier on Tuesday evening by Israeli fire in the Al-Qarara area of Khan Younis and at Juhr Ad-Dik, in central Gaza.

Webmaster’s Commentary:

This was the raid that ended the cease fire in Gaza.

The most propagandized country on earth, the US

Sixty years of massive, ongoing, coldly calculated human rights abuses against the Palestinian people.

That’s the legacy of the State of Israel.

Americans pay the bills for this tyranny and our hopelessly corrupt news media and elected officials go along with it because it’s politically expedient.

Note: The videos of IfAmericansKnew.org are constantly removed by YouTube censors.

I have no idea how long this one will be up.

http://www.brasschecktv.com/page/315.html

We have yet another « Israel under alles » president headed to the White House – and the Israeli war party knows it.

Thus their recent savage and very public bombardment of civilians in Gaza by the Israeli military.

Recall the Israeli war machine would be out of money in three months without constant US subsidy.

What will President Obama do about this latest display of savagery by the Israeli war party?

Let’s see…

He picked Hilary Clinton as his Secretary of State… and Rahm Emanuel, dual US-Israeli citizen and son of an Israeli terrorist, as his chief of staff…

It doesn’t look good.

I’m afraid we’re going to find out that selling « hope » is not unlike selling « soap, »
the only difference being people who sell soap actually deliver something.

The only unequivocal promise I heard Obama make during the campaign was to support Israel and my guess it that’s the only one he’s going to keep up.

America needs to wake up.

Obama’s silence on Israeli airstrikes disappoints many

President–elect Barack Obama blew the first opportunity that had come his way to show that unlike his predecessors, he was going to adopt a more even-handed approach to the Palestine question by choosing to keep quiet after savage Israeli airstrikes across Gaza.


U.S. demands Hamas end terrorist acts, urges Israel to avoid civilian casualties

The United States on Saturday urged Israel to avoid civilian casualties in air strikes on Gaza, and said Hamas must stop rocket attacks into Israel for the violence to cease.

The White House did not call for an end to the Israel Air Force strikes that have killed at least 155 people in Hamas-ruled Gaza.

Webmaster’s Commentary:

Nor did the United States make any comments back on November 5th when Israel broke the cease fire.

Pelosi: US must stand strongly with Israel

Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi issued a statement concerning the Israeli operation in Gaza in which she wrote that « When Israel is attacked, the United States must continue to stand strongly with its friend and democratic ally. »


US holds Hamas ‘responsible’ for Gaza violence: Rice

The United States holds Hamas « responsible » for the renewal of deadly violence in Gaza after the Islamist group broke its ceasefire with Israel, US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Saturday.

An earlier version of Rice’s statement was recalled by the State Department and replaced with a slightly adjusted version that expressed Washington’s concern about the violence and added an appeal to safeguard innocent lives.

Webmaster’s Commentary:

Memo to Secretary Rice: Israel broke the cease-fire on 5 November of this year.

The only reason you added that little bit of palaver in your statement about « appeal to safeguard innocent lives » was simply a sop to Israel’s infuriated Arab neighbors, upon whom the US depends for oil.

Were there no US dependence on Arab countries for oil, that little bit about « humanitarian concern » would never have appeared in this statement at all.

The US government absolutely doesn’t care about how many kids, women, the medically infirm, and the elderly Israel kills, as long as this conflict doesn’t spread regionally. That is the only « containment » issue they care about.


Scores killed in Israeli airstrikes on Gaza

At least 155 Palestinians have been killed and 200 wounded across the Gaza Strip in massive Israeli air strikes on the Hamas-run enclave. Israel has launched a massive wave of air strikes on Hamas targets in Gaza after warning of a fiery riposte to ongoing rocket fire, officials said.

Webmaster’s Commentary:

And again, no mention that Israel broke the cease fire on November 5th with their unprovoked attack that killed 6 Palestinians.


Israel is addicted to violence

The attack on the Gaza strip is proof that Israel is addicted to violence. Slaughtering 155 civilians, many of whom are women and children, can not be justified.

Every nation state has the right to defend itself against terrorism and wanton aggresion but this attack is both disgraceful and disproportionate, and Israel, a nation which has endured much suffering in its relatively short history, should recognise this. Imagine the international response if the UK committed such an act in today in Afghanistan.


Israel attacks Gaza, more than 155 reported killed

Black smoke billowed over Gaza City, where the dead and wounded lay scattered on the ground after more than 30 air strikes destroyed Palestinian security compounds, including two where Hamas was hosting graduation ceremonies for new recruits.

The Israeli army said it had targeted « terrorist infrastructure » following days of rocket attacks from Gaza on southern Israel that caused some damage but few injuries.

Israeli leaders ‘to topple Hamas’

Shadow of death spreads over Gaza

Democratic Underground’s Treatment of Discusson About the Israel/Palestine Conflict is Shameful

Ça y est, les sionistes d’Israël ont mis leurs menaces à exécution. Je vous mets en lien les premières informations les plus importantes et je vais vous revenir sur cela dès demain, le temps d’organiser et de collecter toutes les autres détails. Le nombre de morts varie entre 140 et 200 et celui des blessés touche les 700. On nous dit que c’est une attaque en réponse des roquettes que les Palestiniens lancent, mais n’oubliez pas que c’est Israël qui a brisé le cessez-le-feu le 5 novembre dernier. Voir les articles ci-bas pour les sources.

Israël est la 4e puissance nucléaire au monde avec plus de 400 bombes nucléaires, mais ils ont peur de quelques petites roquettes, dernier outil de résistance d’un peuple occupé militairement depuis 60 ans et ayant perdu plus de 80% de leur territoire depuis. Ça fait depuis des mois que Israël tient un siège médiéval sur la Bande de Gaza, interdisant, vêtements, équipement scolaire, nourriture, médicaments, et pétrole. Cela porte un nom: punition collective; et c’est un crime contre l’humanité. Bien que le Hamas a été démocratiquement élu par les Palestiniens, les États-Unis et Israël ont décidé de fermer la porte à toute discussions et processus de paix. Les cibles des dizaines de missiles lancés des airs par l’armée israélienne ne sont pas que des militants du Hamas, mais aussi des postes de police et bâtiments résidentiels, tuant plusieurs femmes et enfants.

Génocide à petit feu de la Palestine.

État apartheid.

Et maintenant… le nettoyage ethnique de la bande de Gaza.

Israël commets ses crimes de guerre en plein temps des fêtes. C’est leur façon de vous souhaiter la bonne année. Incroyable.

FIN DES MASSACRES ET DU GENOCIDE DES PALESTINIENS DE GAZA

Gaza : la responsabilité directe de la France et de l’Union Européenne

Du blocus à l’assassinat collectif

L’armée israélienne a attaqué Gaza cette nuit avec des moyens militaires énormes. Le premier bilan fait état de 150 morts, civils pour la plupart. Ce massacre était annoncé, envisagé et commenté ces derniers jours dans la presse israélienne, après la fin de la trêve respectée par le Hamas et rompue sans arrêt par l’armée israélienne. Ce crime a été rendu possible par l’impunité totale accordée à Israël depuis bientôt 9 ans et le soutien actif dont il bénéficie au sein de l’Union Européenne. Il est le résultat direct du «rehaussement de la coopération avec l’UE» imposée par la présidence française contre le vote de report du Parlement Européen.
Depuis maintenant des années, la bande de Gaza subit, avec le soutien complice de l’Union Européenne un siège criminel qui viole délibérément toutes les lois internationales : un million et demi de civils sont prisonniers de l’armée israélienne et privés de tout : de nourriture, de carburant, d’électricité, de médicaments, de matériel scolaire … Moins d’un dixième des camions nécessaires au ravitaillement normal de la population parviennent à passer. L’aéroport et le port ont été détruits avant même d’avoir jamais pu fonctionner. Il est interdit de pêcher. Seuls quelques bateaux affrétés par des militants ont pu forcer le blocus. La population subit une «punition» collective impitoyable pour avoir «mal» voté. La communauté internationale laisse faire, voire encourage ce siège. L’occupant a expulsé Robert Falk, le rapporteur spécial sur la situation des droits de l’homme de l’ONU.
Il n’y a aucun statu quo possible, aucune perpétuation envisageable de ce siège impitoyable et criminel. Tout peuple assiégé a le droit de résister à l’oppression.
Aucune symétrie ne peut être établie avec les quelques missiles qui sont tombées sur des villes israéliennes. Il n’y aura pas de sécurité pour les Israéliens sans sécurité pour la population de Gaza. Les politiques européenne et américaine depuis Annapolis, en évitant d’affronter la réalité de l’occupation, aboutissent à l’impasse attendue dont encore une fois le peuple palestinien paie tout le prix.
L’Union Juive Française pour la Paix dénonce le crime qui se déroule contre la population de Gaza. Elle appelle à manifester partout contre cette nouvelle agression. L’UJFP exige une réaction immédiate du gouvernement français, de la Communauté Européenne et de l’ONU pour faire cesser l’agression et pour mettre un terme au blocus de Gaza.

BN de l’UJFP le 27 décembre 2008

Les bombardements aériens menés par Israël dans la bande de Gaza ont fait au moins 205 morts et 700 blessés. C’est le plus lourd bilan côté palestinien en une seule journée depuis le début du conflit il y a 60 ans. Parmi les victimes figurent le chef de la police du Hamas, Taoufik Djabber, ainsi que le chef de l’unité de sécurité et de protection du mouvement islamiste.


Offensive israélienne dans la bande de Gaza, au moins 205 morts


At least 140 Palestinians killed in Israeli air raids on the Gaza Strip

IMEMC correspondent in Gaza Rami Al-Meghari says, it appears the Israeli air strike targeted the Palestinian Police headquarters in the central Gaza Strip and a small police outpost nearby.

Webmaster’s Commentary:

Again, here is the problem. Israel is not attacking missile launchers. It is attacking the civil infrastructure of a government elected by the Palestinian people. The selection of targets is what gives away that the real agenda is to wreck Gaza rather than to stop the Qassams.

If Israel really wanted the Qassams to stop, they would give the Gazan police the equipment and supplies to hunt down the people shooting the rockets. Instead the Israelis are doing everything they can to make sure the Gazan police are unable to do anything at all. One has to wonder why that is?


Palestinians: At least 155 dead, over 200 hurt in IAF Gaza strikes

Israel launched Saturday morning the start of a massive offensive against Qassam rocket and mortar fire on its southern communities, targeting dozens of buildings belonging to the ruling Hamas militant group.

Webmaster’s Commentary:

Okay, here is the total giveaway that this is all a deadly hoax.

If Israel really was worried about the Qassam, why would they destroy the only civil force working to stop those attacks?

That’s like Russia saying it wants to stop terrorism happening in the US and then attacks our army and police force. It should be obvious that the real agenda is to crush the government, and terror is just the excuse.


The war in Gaza – a vicious folly of a bankrupt government

The war in Gaza, the bloodshed, killing, destruction and suffering on both sides of the border are the vicious folly of a bankrupt government. A government which let itself be dragged by adventurous officers and cheap nationalist demagoguery, dragged into a destructive and unnecessary war which will bring no solution to any problem – neither to the communities of southern Israel under the rain of missiles nor to the terrible poverty and suffering of besieged Gaza.


U.S. demands Hamas end terrorist acts, urges Israel to avoid civilian casualties

The United States on Saturday urged Israel to avoid civilian casualties in air strikes on Gaza, and said Hamas must stop rocket attacks into Israel for the violence to cease.

The White House did not call for an end to the Israel Air Force strikes that have killed at least 155 people in Hamas-ruled Gaza.

Webmaster’s Commentary:

Nor did the United States make any comments back on November 5th when Israel broke the cease fire.


Israeli president says no plan to re-enter Gaza

Israel has no plan to invade the Gaza Strip in its efforts to end the continuing rocket attacks from the Hamas-ruled enclave, President Shimon Peres said in an interview published Saturday.

« Israel will take all steps demanded of it in order to stop the rocket fire, » he told the London-based newspaper Asharq al-Awsat, adding that « We will not go into Gaza. There are other ways. We didn’t leave Gaza in order go back. »

Webmaster’s Commentary:

We know when Israeli politicians lie to their countrymen and the world: they open their mouthes, and they speak.


Israel-Hamas violence disrupts Gaza truce

Hamas fired dozens of rockets at Israel on Wednesday after Israeli forces killed six Palestinian militants in an eruption of violence that disrupted a four-month-old truce along the Gaza frontier.

Webmaster’s Commentary:

AFTER Israeli forces killed six Palestinian militants. This article tries to spin the blame o0nto HAMAS, yet it is Israel that provoked the exchange.

http://www.reuters.com/article/worldNews/idUSTRE4A37B520081105


Israel breaks Gaza ceasefire, assassinates six

The Palestinian Centre for Human Rights (PCHR) condemns in the strongest possible terms the killing of six Palestinians carried out by the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) in the Gaza Strip yesterday evening and this morning. The victims were all killed by air strikes. This escalation is the first of its kind since the tahdia (the Egyptian-brokered truce between Palestinian resistance groups and Israel) entered into force on 19 June 2008.

http://electronicintifada.net/v2/article9937.shtml

Israel attacks Gaza, more than 140 reported killed

Israeli war planes and combat helicopters pounded the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip on Saturday, killing at least 140 people and prompting rocket fire from Palestinian militants that killed an Israeli, medics said.

The dead and wounded lay scattered on the ground following the Israeli attacks, which destroyed several Hamas police compounds in the bloodiest day for Palestinians in more than 20 years. Distraught rescuers cried out as they tried to find those still alive and black smoke billowed over Gaza city.

Webmaster’s Commentary:

You know, the guys the Palestinians actually voted for!


Israel acts on threats, pounds Gaza

Israel is in the midst of carrying out its threatened counter-attack on Palestinian militants who’ve been firing rockets across the border.

Webmaster’s Commentary:

… in response to Israel’s November 5th raid that killed 12 and 13 year old Palestinian boys that broke the cease fire.


Israeli Air Strikes Kill at Least 140 in Gaza Strip

Israeli aircraft attacked police and security installations across the Gaza Strip, killing scores of people in the deadliest raid since the occupation of the coastal region ended in 2005, security and medical officials said.

At least 140 people died in the strikes, according to Dr. Mu’awia Hassanein, an emergency medical services official at Gaza’s Shifa Hospital. The dead included Tawfiq Jaber, chief of the Gaza police force, a security official, who declined to be identified, said in a telephone interview today.

Webmaster’s Commentary:

Note that Israel, despite the rhetoric about stopping the Qassam rockets, is targeting the elected HAMAS officials.


120 reportedly killed in Israeli strikes on Gaza

The first round of air strikes came just before noon, and several more waves followed.

The first air strikes took place as children were leaving school.

Webmaster’s Commentary:

Translation: the timing of these raids was to maximize the injury and death for Gazan Palestinian kids. and their parents.


It’s a Holiday Celebration for The Synagogue of Satan.

Just as they attacked the U.S.S. Liberty in an attempt to provoke a war between The U.S. and the U.S.S.R.


Gaza Voices, American Silence

The baby is crying again. You wake up. Cold. There is no electricity in the house; it went off during the night. For the last week – weeks, months – it has been on only sporadically. You throw on a coat and go to check on the baby. It seems listless. There is no milk in the house, and very little food. The UN shipments have stopped again, and you are not sure when they will resume.

Webmaster’s Commentary:

And then the bombs come.


Human Rights Violations in Palestinian Territory Stem from Israeli Attacks

United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) dedicated its sixth special session to human rights violations emanating from Israeli military attacks in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, according to the Human Rights Council report


UN envoy speaks out against resumed Israeli demolitions in West Bank

The United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process (UNSCO) has voiced alarm at Israel’s recent resumption of house demolitions – after a freeze which began this April – in the West Bank.

Robert Serry said in a statement issued over the weekend in Jerusalem that the UN Humanitarian Coordinator and the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) are discussing the world body’s concerns – given the impact of the demolitions on the area’s most vulnerable, with many poor families left destitute – with Israeli authorities.

Comment l’armée israélienne tue les Palestiniens avec des fusils contrôlés à distance

Comment l’armée israélienne tue les Palestiniens avec des fusils contrôlés à distance

Ceci n’est pas un jeu et plusieurs de ces systèmes ont récemment été installés et sont en usage le long de la frontière entre Israël et Gaza. La vidéo de l’opératrice est à donner froid dans le dos – sa façon calme, mais létale d’opérer les fusils montés à distance à l’aide de sa manette – assure ainsi que maintient une distance entre les opérateurs d’une part et le sang et les tripes des Palestiniens qui explosent en petits morceaux.

La deuxième vidéo dépeint la réalité à Gaza que les grands médias se refusent de vous montrer.

Le dernier morceau est une pièce écrite en 2003, avant le début de l’agression criminelle de l’Irak, par le Brigadier Général US à la retraite James J. David à propos de quelques réalités mal comprises par le publique en général à propos d’Israël versus l’Irak.

How Israel kills Palestinians with Remote Control Guns – shooting fish in a Barrel IDF style

This is no game and several of these systems have recently been installed and are in use , live, along the Israel-Gaza border. The video of the female operator is chilling – her unhurried , yet lethal operation, poise and perfect make up – ensures and maintains the disatnce from the blood and guts of actually blasting people to bits.

E-mail: nkp@neto.bezeqint.net
23 Nov. ’08 ‘

URGENT STATEMENT BY ANTI-ZIONIST ORTHODOX JEWS WORLDWIDE

How long will Jewish and non-Jewish leaders who claim the mantle of civilization and morality remain silent in the face of the ongoing state terrorism practiced by the Zionist state against the Palestinian People, most visibly today in Gaza, where the Zionists believe they can starve the Palestinians into submission in violation of all tenets of international law, all religious values in general, INCLUDING the values of the Jewish faith???!!

HOW LONG WILL THIS BE ALLOWED TO CONTINUE??


WE URGENTLY PLEA TO THE WORLD COMMUNITY AND WORLD LEADERS TO PUT AN
END TO ZIONIST STATE TERRORISM!!

IN THE NAME OF G-D!

IN THE NAME OF HUMANITY!

The terrorist regime of the State of Israel has been repressing, expelling and persecuting Palestinians for 60 years, and expects the Palestinians to simply sit with their arms folded while this goes on! Are the Palestinians supposed to be collaborators in their own destruction? Are they simply supposedly to surrender in order to compensate the Zionists for what happened during World War II thousands of miles away?

It is time for leaders with a sense of morality and courage to stand up and finally declare ENOUGH
IS ENOUGH!! The State of Israel must no long be granted a blank check to commit crimes!
This wicked rogue ethnocratic state must be dismantled and the rights of the Palestinians restored!
We pray that our appeal will find its way into the hearts and minds of those who have the power to put an end to the madness unleashed by the State of Israel, which is armed to teeth with the most sophisticated weaponry used on the Palestinians, and held over the rest of the Middle East as the Zionists demand the entire world surrender to their agenda!

The Zionists know that their state is on the threshold of disintegration, and they
are prepared to take millions of Jews and non-Jews down with them!! The world is in grave danger if the Zionists are not stopped!! May G-d in Heaven hear our prayer!

UN says ‘network’ killed Hariri

A UN commission investigating the death of former Lebanese PM Rafik Hariri says the evidence suggests a network of people was responsible for the attack.

No individuals were named, but the investigators said what it called the « Hariri Network » might also be behind other deadly attacks in Lebanon.

What is really revealing are the reader comments for this article.


Arab leaders warn Israel over belligerency

Arab leaders said that Israel is sabotaging the Middle East peace process and warned they could withdraw their landmark offer of peace with Israel in exchange for a return of Arab lands, unless Israel explicitly accepts the initiative.


Hezbollah Warns US Not to Set Up Base

Hezbollah has argued that Washington’s attempts to boost military ties with Lebanon are a ploy for domination and could turn the country into another Iraq. Some in Lebanon have expressed fears that a foreign military presence in the country could attract al-Qaida and other militants.

Lebanon‘s top Shiite Muslim cleric accused the Bush administration of trying to force the Lebanese to choose between turning their country into an American military base or face new strife.


High noon in Egypt?

The parallels between President Hosni Mubarak of Egypt and the deposed shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi of Iran, are attention-getting.

Mr. Mubarak uses his « Central Security Force, » that now consists of more than half of his entire military, to impose a measure of censorship on the mass media and ban most forms of political organization, activities and literary expression.


And remember, folks, this is another one of « our thugs », who we keep propping up with American tax dollars in order to assure « stability » in the region.

Unfortunately, when you have masses of a country’s population suppressed, that can only go on just so long.

And when some kind of overthrow happens, just watch the pals in Washington roll their eyes, and say « Darn! We never saw this coming! » (As with the fall of the Shaw, Batista, etc., etc.,)

Who benefits from a meltdown in Algeria?

Certainly not the Algerian people.And keep in mind: Algeria has huge natural gas reserves (some estimates put it at about 3,200 billion cubic meters of proven recoverable gas).

Controlling the money from those reserves could nicely line lthe pockets of whatever group declared that they needed to go in and « stabilize » Algeria’s geopolitical situation.

Pakistan : le plus dur reste à faire

US/NATO crisis in Afghanistan generates greater pressure on Pakistan

US general Dan McNeill, the outgoing commander of the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF), told journalists in early June that at least 400,000 troops would be needed to control a country as large and populous as Afghanistan.

The ISAF, however, consists of just 53,000 troops, of whom about 20,000 are deployed in the ethnic Pashtun southern provinces where the vast bulk of insurgent activity is taking place.


What is happening here is the US and NATO essentially blaming Pakistan for their horrendously poor planning in terms of never, ever having had enough boots on the ground to do the job in the first place.

Look for more demonization of Pakistan (read: potential US/NATO seizing the Pakistani side of this border) in the weeks ahead.


Missile strike kills 12 in Pakistan

Pakistan, Iran finalize gas pipeline deal

Pakistan and Iran on Monday resolved all issues regarding the $7.5 billion gas pipeline project, paving way for inking an agreement soon at a mutually agreed date in Tehran.


The US is making threats; meanwhile, Iran is making deals in the region, and there’s nothing the US can actually do to stop them., short of a massive military intervention.


Pakistan’s Sharif to join Bhutto party in coalition

In an ominous sign for Musharraf, Sharif and Asif Ali Zardari, Bhutto’s widower and new leader of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), agreed to restore judges who Musharraf dismissed when he imposed emergency rule in early November.


It will be interesting to see how this coalition will view Pakistan’s ties with the US, and how these new developments will influence what kind of military presence the US will be able to have in Pakistan henceforward.

Pakistanis Deal Severe Defeat to Musharraf in Election

Pakistanis dealt a crushing defeat to President Pervez Musharraf in parliamentary elections Monday, in what government and opposition politicians said was a firm rejection of his policies since 2001 and those of his close ally, the United States.


Pakistani Coalition nears collapse

Pakistan‘s month-old coalition government is on the brink of collapse because of a standoff between the Pakistan People’s Party and the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz over reinstating the judges who were summarily dismissed last fall by President Pervez Musharraf.

In a bid to avert the collapse of the country’s first popularly elected government in nearly a decade, leaders of the two parties spent seven hours in emergency meetings yesterday in Dubai, but were unable to reach agreement.


Pakistan coalition averts collapse with deal to restore ousted judges

Pakistan’s fledgling civilian government appeared last night to have found a way out of the crisis threatening to pull it apart when it announced that the nation’s ousted judges would be restored this month.

The former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, whose Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) is the junior coalition party, said 12 May had been set as the date for the reinstatement of the 60 judges – including the ousted chief justice Iftikhar Chaudhry – who were kicked out by President Pervez Musharraf last year.

US Defence Secretary Robert Gates said Pakistan’s failure to put pressure on Taliban forces on the country’s border with Afghanistan had fueled a rise in violence, but said Islamabad appeared to recognize the problem.


At the point where Musharraf is out of the government, watch Pakistan morph from « brave collaborator in the war on terror » to a new component in the « axis of evil » fast enough to make your head spin!

Even though the Pakistani government has pledged to stop attacks on Afghanistan from its soil, the first time they don’t prevent this from happening, the US is going to be agitating for more of a US/NATO presence inside the Pakistani portion of that border.

And if the US doesn’t get what it wants……….all bets are off in terms of what Washington might do.

You could almost hear the drumbeat of the demonization of Pakistan getting louder and faster in the last couple of weeks.


Ex-Taliban fighter tells of training from Pakistani military

Zaher insists he was neither forced to go public with his story nor coached by Afghan officials, whose routine response to terrorism on their soil is to blame neighbouring Pakistan.

Pakistan officially sides with the West against the insurgents and vigorously denies mounting accusations that it is a two-faced participant in the war on terror.


Anyone hear that rapid crescendo of drumbeats toward a total demonization of Pakistan, because the US and NATO are not getting what they want from its government??

Look for this to increase in the weeks ahead, even though the Pakistan military is beginning to crack down on militants on its side of the border.

Pakistan could be flipped by this administration from « partner in the war on terror » to part of the « axis of evil » in a heartbeat, if it serves their purposes.

This little « dog and pony show » in Afghanistan may well be part of a propaganda headed precisely in this direction.


Admiral: Pakistan OKs bigger U.S. role

Pakistan is taking a more welcoming view of U.S. suggestions for using American troops to train and advise its own forces in the fight against anti-government extremists, the commander of U.S. forces in that region said Wednesday.

Navy Adm. William J. Fallon, commander of U.S. Central Command, said he believes increased violence inside Pakistan in recent months has led Pakistani leaders to conclude that they must focus more intensively on extremist al-Qaida hideouts near the border with Afghanistan.


A presence inside Pakistan opens up another front for a possible military confrontation with Iran.


24 Killed in Suicide Attacks in Pakistan; More Than 200 Others Wounded

Massive suicide bombs ripped through a seven-story police headquarters and a house on Tuesday, killing at least 24 people and wounding more than 200 others in attacks that deepened Pakistan’s security crisis.


One wonders just how long before Musharraf caves, and American « advisors » wind up going in to assist the government in preventing violence.

Unfortunately, any enhanced US presence is very much apt to ratchet the violence up, rather than prevent it.


Tape caught Pakistani official saying vote will be rigged

A prominent U.S.-based human rights group Friday released what it said was a recording of Pakistan’s attorney general acknowledging that next week’s national elections would be « massively » rigged.


Major General who rigged Pakistan 2002 polls, spills the beans

A retired Pakistan Major General, who was part of the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) has spilled the beans on how the 2002 general elections in the country were rigged.


Taliban commander in Pakistan orders halt to attacks

The top Taliban commander in Pakistan called a cease-fire Thursday and ordered followers to halt attacks, while the government said it was pursuing peace talks with tribal elders in the volatile border region.


This appears to be a real step forward in the direction of peace from the new Pakistani government.

It was, of course, the absolute opposite of what the US administration wanted to happen.


Pakistan drafts peace deal with militants: officials

Pakistan’s new government has drafted a peace agreement with Taliban militants in its troubled tribal belt bordering Afghanistan, officials and a rebel spokesman said Wednesday.

« Work is in progress swiftly on a new peace agreement with the Taliban Movement of Pakistan, » a senior Pakistani security official told AFP, adding that « indirect negotiations » through tribal elders were ongoing.


That collective and consistent « thud » you’re hearing is created by US state department officials, banging their heads against a wall in the white house.

This agreement was absolutely logical, and critical, for peace to come to Pakistan.

This, of course is why the Bush administration fought it tooth and nail.

It appears that Pakistan will be making its own way in domestic and foreign policy these days, and the US administration had better sit up, take notice, and behave much more tactfully to the newly elected Pakistani Parliament.


U.S. angry as Pakistan seeks peace deal with Islamists

« We are concerned about it, and what we encourage them to do is to continue to fight against the terrorists and to not disrupt any security or military operations that are ongoing in order to help prevent a safe haven for terrorists there, » said White House spokeswoman Dana Perino. « We have been concerned about these types of approaches because we don’t think that they work. »


So now, for attempting to create a peaceful settlement with the militants, is Pakistan about to make Bush’s « axis of evil » list?!?

I think my head just spun around backward on that one. And a small note to policy makers regarding the newly elected Parliament in Pakistan: tread very, very lightly here.

Looking at the legacy of misery and devastation the US has created in Afghanistan and Iraq, (and the propping up of Musharraf in their own country) the Pakistanis are not very happy at this point with any great degree of US « involvement » in their political and military life


Pakistani Taliban chief pulls out of peace talks

A Pakistani Taliban commander pulled out of a peace deal with the government after it refused to withdraw the army from tribal lands on the Afghan border, the militant’s spokesman said on Monday.


Unless there is a meaningful cease-fire agreement, and the Pakistani Taliban are thoroughly included in the political process, as is true for their neighbor Afghanistan, there can be no peace in the region.

50 Turkish Warplanes Bomb Kurdish Rebel Targets In Northern Iraqt

Turkish warplanes hit Kurdish rebel targets in northern Iraq early Sunday, Turkey’s military said, the first such attack since the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq. An Iraqi official said the planes attacked several villages, killing one woman.


….. With the tacit permission of the US military (which can barely hold on to Baghdad these days).


TURKEY: Relations with Iraq Become Explosive t

Clashes between Turkish army units and Kurdish Workers Party (PKK) guerrillas intensified during the weekend along Turkey’s borders with northern Iraq and in the country’s eastern province of Tunceli. Twenty suspected Kurdish rebels were killed, according to Turkish NTV network.

Fighting in the district of Pulumur began Sunday morning, involving 8,000 Turkish security troops, backed by helicopter gunships, who surrounded rural Dokuzkaya, Sariyayla, Kizilmescit and Zagge areas located in the Pulumur and Nazimiye districts of Tunceli. The highway that gives access to the rest of the province was cut off.


This is nothing compared to the military activity we will see from Turkey in Iraq if Edrogan goes back home empty-handed after his meeting with Bush in Washington next week.

We truly have a « never saw it coming » cronyocracy running this government, and unfortunately, they still have way too much time in which to create a world of hurt internationally.

NKorea to delay nuclear disablement

Economic compensation pledged by the United States, South Korea, Japan, China and Russia in return for disabling its nuclear facilities by the end of 2007 « is being delayed, » said Hyon Hak Pong, vice director-general of North Korea’s Foreign Ministry, according to footage from broadcaster APTN.

« To cope with this, we have no option but to adjust the speed of the disablement process, » Hyon said.


It looks as though what was widely touted as a foreign policy coup for this administration may turn out to be a major embarrassment.

And then, after hearing the rhetoric against Iran in recent days, North Korea may have decided not to abandon their nuclear capabilities quite so quickly after all.


White House to Detail N. Korean-Syrian Nuke Connection

In an oddly timed move, the White House has decided to brief Congress this week about a nuclear facility the North Koreans allegedly helped Syria build more than a year ago.


I don’t see any cooling towers in that photo.


UN censures US and Israel over Syria nuclear row

The director general deplores the fact that this information was not provided to the agency in a timely manner, in accordance with the agency’s responsibilities under the nuclear non-proliferation treaty, to enable it to verify its veracity and establish the facts, » ElBaradei said in a statement today.


If the US really believed that what they had was credible proof, why didn’t they share this with El Baradei and his group months ago?

This incident happened last September.


Blackmailing Bush; how the « Dear Leader » duped « The Decider »

The agreement will remove the North from the State Department’s list of terrorist states and provide 50,000 tons of fuel oil just for shutting down its Yongbyon reactor. But that won’t address the north’s clandestine nuclear program or Kim’s nuclear weapons stockpile. In fact, these are not even on the table!


George Bush, and his administration: acheving the absolute diometric opposite of what they claimed they sought to acheive: way to go, folks, heck of a job on North Korea!

Israel kidnaps 30 Palestinian civilians

Israeli army has resumed its kidnapping campaign against Palestinians in the West Bank, abducting dozens of civilians including a lawmaker.


Report: Israel committed more than 51 violations since the truce started

Al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad Movement, stated Thursday that the IOF troops had committed more than 51 violations and 400 military assaults, and kidnapped 300 Palestinians in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank since the truce took effect. In a report monitoring the Israeli violations of the calm, the Brigades said that in the fifth week of the truce, Israel committed eight violations during which a Palestinian citizen was wounded north of Gaza and two others were kidnapped in Khan Younis.


Israeli settlers spray chemicals on Palestinian farmers during attack

Israeli settlers sprayed chemicals on a group of Palestinian farmers while attacking them in the Qalqilia area of the northern West Bank on Monday, human rights fieldworkers reported.


ZIORATS

« Rats have become an Israeli weapon to displace and expel Arab residents of the occupied Old City of Jerusalem, » it said in a report. « Over the past two months, dozens of (Jewish) settlers come to the alleyways and streets of the Old City carrying iron cages full of rats. They release the rats, which find shelter in open sewage systems, » the report said.


In the first book of Samuel, the story is told of how the Philistines conquered the Israelites and captured the Ark of the Covenant. Shortly thereafter, the Philistines are struck down by a plague which Israel attributes to God. The Philistines have another idea and seek to end the plague by returning the Ark of the Covenant to Israel, and the plague went away. But along with the Ark, the Philistines sent 5 golden spheres, or « Buboes » representing the swollen glands of the plague, together with five gold statues of mice, a clear signal that the Philistines knew exactly what had been done to them and how.

This may be the oldest recorded instance of biological warfare in history, and the precedent for the rats being released in Old Jerusalem.


Jewish settlers smash village

Palestinian security says more than 20 Jewish settlers have attacked a Palestinian village in the West Bank, smashing cars and windows and cutting electricity wires.


Israeli rockets target Palestinian villages

Two homemade Israel rockets have landed in two villages in the Palestinian territories south of the West Bank city of Nablus.

Residents of the villages of Odala and Awarta say the neighboring Israeli settlers have launched the rockets into the Palestinian territories on Monday.


Palestinians: Settlers fire mortar shells at West Bank village

The Palestinian news agency Ma’an reported Tuesday that the makeshift bombs had the words « Sharon-1 » and « Sharon-2 » inscribed on them. One of the Palestinian policemen in the village said that the bombs were locally manufactured, and that they struck near the school.


Apparently mortar shelling here is not a one-way incident.


Gaza reporter: Israeli security officials broke my ribs

A Palestinian journalist said from his hospital bed on Monday that Israeli security personnel abused him and broke his ribs on his way home to the Gaza Strip after receiving a journalism award in Britain.

Mohammed Omer, who writes for the pro-Palestinian Washington Report, said he was strip-searched and detained for nearly four hours at the Israeli-controlled Allenby Bridge when he crossed from Jordan into the West Bank, en route to the Gaza Strip, on June 26.


A CALL FOR GENOCIDE?

« All of the Palestinians must be killed; men, women, infants, and even their beasts. » This was the religious opinion issued one week ago by Rabbi Yisrael Rosen, director of the Tsomet Institute, a long-established religious institute attended by students and soldiers in the Israeli settlements of the West Bank.


Official PA paper: Israel poisoning prisoners

In a series of reports published in the ‘al-Hayat al-Jadida’ newspaper Israel is accused of poisoning Palestinian prisoners in its custody and conducting « medical experiments’ on them.


Israel’s ambassador says Britain has become a hotbed of radical anti-Israeli feeling

Look how Israel behaves! Not even a mother could love THAT spoiled a child!


Italy: Mosques must recognize Israel

Many Muslims around the world do not recognize Israel, saying the United Nations had no right to allow the establishment of a state in a land that has long belonged to the Palestinians.

In point of fact, the UN did not do any such thing. The UN Resolution calling for both a Jewish state and Palestinian state was never ratified. David Ben Gurion simply declared Israel to be in existence and the United States immediately recognized the new nation. In so doing, the US and Israel did to Palestine what Hitler tried (but failed) to do to France.

Rapport du Directeur Général de l’AIEA sur le Programme Nucléaire de l’Iran

Rapport du Directeur Général de l’AIEA sur le Programme Nucléaire de l’Iran

par Directeur général de l’AEIA Mohamed ElBaradei

Mondialisation.ca, Le 25 fevrier 2008


Teheran Times

Ci-dessous la traduction du texte intégral du rapport du Directeur Général de l’AIEA, Mohamed ElBaradei, sur le programme nucléaire de l’Iran, remis au Conseil des Gouverneurs de l’AIEA le vendredi 22 février 2008 et publié en anglais sur le site iranien Tehran Times


British Prime Minister Gordon Brown wants Iranian blockade because of « anti-semitism »

England‘s economy is in malaise and PM Gordon Brown wants war with Iran, because it is « anti-semitic. » This proves that England (and Canada) are kosher, not liberal. Would real liberals start a war with a country that is peaceful to it?


West to flex military muscles against Iran

The United States is set to lead a joint military exercise in the Atlantic Ocean to show off its combat capability as a warning to Iran.

The Joint Task Force Exercise (JTFEX) 08-4 ‘Operation Brimstone’ will take place on July 21-31 in North Carolina and off the eastern US coast from Virginia to Florida, involving France, Britain and Brazil.


It would be wonderful if the reasonably cool heads, and sane, grown-up individuals in Tel Aviv and Washington could prevail to prevent a military attack against Iran.

Unfortunately, given these countries’ mutual histories of geopolitical belligerence, it is very difficult to see this kind of outcome happening.

The EU has just come out and said that they will not support a military attack against Iran.

Now the question remains: will they actually be able to convince the US and Israel that a military attack, far from resolving anything, will only make matters worse?


European Union says it won’t support military action against Iran

European Union foreign ministers say they will not support a military strike on Iran but want more talks to try to resolve worries Tehran might be developing nuclear weapons.

British Foreign Secretary David Miliband says it is now up to Iran to respond to global powers and EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana after talks in Geneva on Saturday.

He says Britain and others involved in the negotiations with Iran are « 100 per cent focused on a diplomatic resolution » to the Iranian issue.


Memo to the writer of this article: Iran’s nuclear program is simply that of creating a power station, and for that, they are enriching uranium at 3%, not the 98% necessary for a weapons program.

The IAEA has seen absolutely nothing indicating that Iran is engaged in a weapons development program.

It’s very nice that the EU has made this statement, but what are they going to do to convince Israel and the US that military intervention would be a really, really bad idea?Mp>And what is Russia going to do to protect its geopolitical and financial interests in Iran, which are considerable, if such an attack does take place?


Iran given two-week deadline to end the nuclear impasse

The failure to reach agreement appeared likely to trigger new European and UN sanctions and to raise tensions in the Gulf. An Iranian rejection would also represent a rebuff to conciliatory moves from Washington, including the dispatch of a senior diplomat to Geneva to attend high-level talks with the Iranians for the first time in nearly three decades. The diplomat, William Burns, left Geneva without making any public comments.


Threats are NOT ‘Conciliatory gestures.’ What looked like a possibility to avoid yet another disastrous war for the US is apparently only a repeat of the cheap theatrics the US engaged in just prior to the invasion of Iraq, where the US tried to look like it was searching for a peaceful solution even as the bombs were being loaded onto the airplanes.

The tip off is Condi’s statement that Iran would have to suspend enrichment prior to any negotiations. This is a classic tactic intended to wreck the possability of a solution by giving the other side the choice of total capitulation to US demands before any negotiations (with the guaratnee that any subsequent negotiations would not produce anything in return) or being portrayed as the bad guy for « sabotaging » the « negotiations ».

Under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, Iran has a legal right, recognized by the US Government, to build nuclear power plants and to make fuel rods for them, and NOBODY has produced an iota of evidence that Iran is doing anything else.


Iran Nuke Laptop Data Came from Terror Group

The George W. Bush administration has long pushed the « laptop documents » — 1,000 pages of technical documents supposedly from a stolen Iranian laptop — as hard evidence of Iranian intentions to build a nuclear weapon. Now charges based on those documents pose the only remaining obstacles to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) declaring that Iran has resolved all unanswered questions about its nuclear programme.

But those documents have long been regarded with great suspicion by U.S. and foreign analysts. German officials have identified the source of the laptop documents in November 2004 as the Mujahideen e Khalq (MEK), which along with its political arm, the National Council of Resistance in Iran (NCRI), is listed by the U.S. State Department as a terrorist organisation.

There are some indications, moreover, that the MEK obtained the documents not from an Iranian source but from Israel’s Mossad.


Iranian Jews say republic safe for them

A top Jewish community leader in Iran on Wednesday described the recent immigration of 40 Iranian Jews to Israel as a « misinformation campaign » and insisted that Jews living in the Islamic Republic were not endangered by the hard-line policies of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

« This is a misinformation campaign, a campaign of lies against Iran and its Jewish community. We can’t confirm that 40 Iranian Jews landed in Israel, » Morsathegh told The Associated Press.


AFP: Bush says US would defend Israel if Iran attacks

US President George W. Bush said Washington would defend its close ally Israel in the event of an Iranian attack, in remarks broadcast on Israeli army radio on Sunday.

« Whether there’s an imminent attack coming, I don’t think so, » Bush said in excerpts of an interview with an Israeli television station to be aired in its entirety later in the day.

« If Iran did strike Israel… We will defend our ally, no ands, ifs or buts, » he said.


Translation: look for some kind of false flag attack against Israel to get some kind of war against Iran going before Bush leaves office.

And the venue here is fascinating: Israeli Army radio?!?


Israel to brief George Bush on options for Iran strike

Israeli security officials are to brief President George W Bush on their latest intelligence about Iran’s nuclear programme – and how it could be destroyed – when he begins a tour of the Middle East in Jerusalem this week.


Now, keep in mind that what Israel is talking about is not a weapons facility (like the one Israel has underneath the Dimona reactor). Israel wants to destroy Iran’s power station, just as they did Iraq’s power station, because Israel, itself guilty of clandestine weapons manufacturing, cannot accept that its neighbors are building nuclear power plants merely to generate electricity. Israel never does anything wrong (according to Israel) and therefore must assuage its guilt over its clandestine nuclear facility by believing that everyone else is doing it too.

As for Bush, he is in violation of international law merely by agreeing to Israel’s plans, because both the United States and Iran (but not Israel) signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, which gives Iran the legal right to build nuclear power stations and to manufacture the fuel rods for them. George Bush is breaking that treaty by bowing to Israel desire to continue its monopoly on nuclear power in the Mideast.

There is no other way to spin this; Israel and George Bush are the criminals in this issue.


WRH: THE MUST-HAVE WAR

History is repeating itself, and because history does repeat, no doubt Bush and his advisers are thinking that if they can start a major war, they will be off the hook. Once more the American people will silently endure their hardships for the war effort, silence their complaints, and accept with dignity yet another enforced decline in their standard of living.

For this, to save themselves, Bush and his advisers are willing to risk turning a regional war with Israel’s enemies into a wider war, possibly a global war with Russia, possibly with China, possibly with the rest of the entire world as the globe realizes that the United States has become this century’s embodiment of the Nazi empire.

It is for this reason that President Bush scarcely missed a step when the National Intelligence Estimate proved Iran innocent of Bush ‘a accusations, before trying to stage a new « Gulf of Tonkin » provocation in the Straight of Hormuz. Bush doesn’t want this war. Bush NEEDS this war. The entire US Government needs it. Indeed, having already depleted the nation’s resources to fund the current invasions, the US Government probably will not be able to survive without a new world war.

Which is why they will do anything, and I stress ANYTHING, to start one.


Stop threats then we’ll talk, Iran tells West

Iran on Sunday told the West it would only hold talks over its disputed nuclear programme if world powers stopped threatening further punitive measures against Tehran.


Israel « would not dare attack Iran »: Ahmadinejad

Of course not. Israel just ordered Bush to have the Americans attack Iran FOR Israel.


Gulf allies turn their backs on Bush

All eyes are now on the report of ElBaradei at the IAEA meeting in March. Tehran, naturally, is pinning high hopes that the Iran nuclear file may become a routine affair involving a nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty member country. But the most important outcome of the ElBaradei visit is perhaps its impact in molding regional opinion in the Middle East and in the Persian Gulf region.


Saudi cannot be launchpad for Iran attack: report

A leading Saudi newspaper on Saturday ruled out any attempt by the United States to use the oil-rich Gulf kingdom as a launchpad for a possible war on Iran over Tehran’s disputed nuclear programme.

Two days before a visit to Saudi Arabia by US President George W. Bush, the pro-government daily Al-Riyadh said: « We refuse to be used to launch wars or tensions with Iran.


Good!

Let us hope that the governments of all the other Middle Eastern countries Bush is visiting are unanimous in this.


Just like Israel did to Iraq.


Olmert renews threat on Iran

Israel renewed a veiled threat to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities pre-emptively.

Seems like Israel is the threat to world peace, doesn’t it?


Toward Militarism, War, Empire, Caskets, and Bankruptcy

The incident in the Gulf of Tonkin – excuse me, Gulf of Hormuz – this past week confirms how easy it is for an American ruler to send the entire nation into war, especially given that he is now permitted to ignore the constitutional provision requiring a congressional declaration of war. If the captains of those U.S. battleships and destroyers had blown those Iranian speedboats out of the water, one can already hear Bush and Cheney proclaiming, « We’ve been attacked! We’ve been attacked! The Department of Defense is responding by defending our nation from this attack by bombing Iran. Support the troops. God bless America! »

Question: If China, Iran, and Venezuela sent a fleet of destroyers and battleships into the Gulf of Mexico for joint war games, how would U.S. officials respond? Wouldn’t they go ape?


Bush assured Israel over Gaza violence: Olmert

US President George W. Bush has assured Israel that no peace deal with the Palestinians will be implemented until violence from Hamas-run Gaza stops, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said on Sunday.


Translation; even if it’s the Mossad hurling Kassams in Israel’s direction, this « understanding » guarantees that there will never be a peace treaty between Israel and Palestine.


Israel rules out peace with Iran

Israel Prime Minister Ehud Olmert told a parliamentary committee that peace with Iran is impossible and that military actions against the Islamic state was legitimate.


From Palestine’s point of view, peace with Israel is impossible. Therefore, following Olmert’s own logic, military actions against Israel are legitimate!

Basically, Olmert has just declared that military action by Israel is « legitimate » against any nation that doesn’t do what Israel tells it to do. That could even mean the US itself (and maybe that’s the reason the US gives Israel everything they want!)


Bush Tells Israelis He Doesn’t Believe Iran NIE Report

In private conversations with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert last week, the president all but disowned the document, said a senior administration official who accompanied Bush on his six-nation trip to the Mideast. « He told the Israelis that he can’t control what the intelligence community says, but that [the NIE’s] conclusions don’t reflect his own views » about Iran’s nuclear-weapons program, said the official, who would discuss intelligence matters only on the condition of anonymity.

Bush’s behind-the-scenes assurances may help to quiet a rising chorus of voices inside Israel’s defense community that are calling for unilateral military action against Iran.


« What Bush has done, in essence, is to have characterized every single individual in those 16 agencies who collectively came to the conclusions they did regarding Iran’s nuclear program as complete morons

And who is supposed to start this so-called « unilateral action »?

Not Israel on its own, that’s a sure bet.


Bush Disowns U.S. Intel, Tells Israelis Iran NIE ‘Doesn’t Reflect My Own Views’

« I don’t see it and I don’t hear it, and you can’t make me, nyah, nyah, nyah!!! » — Official White Horse Souse

(Ahem)

So, here we have a President who totally abandons the work product of all 16 (taxpayer funded) intelligence agencies and has his own « opinion » which just happens to exactly match that of the foreign government that spies on America, buys and blackmails the Congress, repeatedly and stages false-flag attacks on us to trick us into destroying their enemies.

You have a problem with that?


Bush takes distance from key Iran findings

US President George W. Bush on Tuesday appeared to distance himself from what he called an « independent » US intelligence finding widely seen as dousing the likelihood of armed confrontation with Iran.

« I defended our intelligence services, but made it clear that they’re an independent agency; that they come to conclusions separate from what I may or may not want, » said the president.


Bush characterized this as an »Independent » US intelligence finding?!?

On what planet does he live, and is he absolutely unaware that the NIE is generated by US governmental agencies?

When you have a president of a major power who appears to be pathologically allergic to the truth, be afraid: be very afraid.


Israel won’t accept nuke weapons in Iran

Prime Minister Ehud Olmert told a powerful parliamentary panel on Monday that Israel rejects « no options » to block Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons, a meeting participant said.

The statement was the Israeli leader’s clearest indication yet that he is willing to use military force against Iran.


WHAT NUCLEAR WEAPONS!!!

First, there is absolutely no evidence that Iran has nuclear weapons or that they are trying to make them. On the other had Israel has over 300 nuclear warheads and the whole world knows it. The refuse to join the Nuclear Non-proliferation treat or allow anyone to inspect their facilities.

Also, notice how the media says Iran has quit their nuclear weapons program

THERE IS NO EVIDENCE THAT THEY EVER HAD A NUCLEAR WEAPONS PROGRAM!!

Here is the real problem. When Olmert talks about military action against Iran he is not talking about Israeli kids invading Iran, he is talking about sending AMERICAN kids to die in Iran, and the fact that he is talking this tough AFTER Bush’s visit proves that Bush has already agreed to this!


George Bush calls Iran ‘leading terror sponsor’

President George W Bush has condemned Iran as the foremost threat to global security as he attempted to rally Gulf states behind a tougher line against the Islamic Republic during a tour of the region.

They dress funny. » — Official White Horse Souse


US, Israel on ‘same page’ on Iran

Ummm, just what language is that page written in?


‘All options on table’ to stop nuclear Iran: Israel

« In assessing the threat from Iran we see in sync and think similarly. Both America and Israel understand the severity of the threat, the implication of the threat if it grows, » Israel’s US Ambassador Sallai Meridor said.


You can be that Israel is furiously doing everything they can to insure that Bush will order an attack on Iran before the end of his term, as it cannot count on just how carnage-prone the next president will be on this issue.

And perhaps that little Strait of Hormuz « incident » last weekend might well have been a part of their strategy in creating some kind of boil-up.

There are just a few, minor problems with this, however.

First and foremost, Russia has stated in no uncertain terms that an attack against Iran will be considered an attack against Russia.

And seriously, is anyone in the US military or administration quite mad enough to believe that a war with Russia over Iran’s nuclear just to appease Israel on this is a good thing?

I would certainly hope not.


Iran still a threat, Bush tells Israeli TV

We’ll nuke Iran – Bush promises Israel

US President George W. Bush promised Israel’s opposition leader Binyamin Netanyahu that the United States will join the Jewish state in a nuclear strike against Iran, Israel Radio reported today.


Bush Says US, Allies Must Confront Iran

Chiding U.S. allies who have withheld civil liberties, Bush said governments will never build trust by harassing or imprisoning candidates and protesters. But his rebuke was general, and he did not single out any U.S. partner in the region for oppressive practices.

« You cannot expect people to believe in the promise of a better future when they are jailed for peacefully petitioning their government, » Bush said. « And you cannot stand up a modern, confident nation when you do not allow people to voice their legitimate criticisms. »


This from the man who has condoned torture as part of American policy?

? The heavy irony of these statements was surely lost on Bush, who probably has no clue what the word means.

I am absolutely certain, however, that it was not lost on his host countries during this tour.

And the charge that « Iran is the world’s leading state sponsor of terror, » is laughable.

How many times in last 8 years has Iran started pre-emptive wars of aggression for other countries’ resources, based on a pack of lies?

Not once.

But the US has.

We’ll nuke Iran – Bush promises Israel


Iran reportedly says no confrontation with U.S. in Gulf

Iran on Friday denied there had been any confrontation between its forces and a U.S. ship in the Gulf, Iranian media reported, after a U.S. official said a ship contracted by the U.S Military Sealift Command fired on an Iranian vessel.


So, is someone out there PRETENDING to be Iranian boats in the hopes of kicking off a war?

Rep. McDermott: The Folly of Attacking Iran

As we know from history, controlling the oil wealth of Iran mattered more to the West than anything else. Given the choice between watching Iran construct pillars of Democracy or finding a way for the West to construct – and control – oil drilling platforms, there was no hesitation.

In 1953, the United States and United Kingdom launched Operation Ajax. It was a covert CIA operation to destabilize and remove the democratically elected government of Iran, including Prime Minister Mohammed Mossadegh.

I am not sure about « whole history ». History is full of assholes. But there is no question that in the present day, nobody has witnessed crimes like the ones committed by the Zionist regime against the Palestinian.

And today is what we have to deal with.


Israel gives UN watchdog secret briefing on Iran

Abramovich presented Israel’s concerns about a continued nuclear program in Tehran.


« Now then, our first slides show some of you in compromising situations involving the extremely young ladies we had escorting you on your last visit to Israel… »


IS THE ‘FINAL CONFRONTATION’ FINALLY UPON US? ONE HOPES NOT, BUT THE SIGNS ARE NOT GOOD.

I have for some time been warning of the impending final confrontation between the US-Israeli alliance and Iran. The pointers indicating that the moment of that final confrontation may have almost arrived are now too irresistible to ignore. I hope I’m wrong.


Iran vows to retaliate against U.S. bases in Gulf if it attacks first

Iran‘s top military commander said Saturday that his forces would retaliate against American military bases in the Persian Gulf if they are involved in any possible future attack on Iran.


So, if Israel attacks Iran, YOUR kids get the return fire.


Iran unveils first major space centre, launches research rocket

Iran reportedly launched a research rocket Monday and unveiled its first major space centre, which it says will be used to launch research satellites.


Iran receives nuke fuel

Iran received a third shipment of nuclear fuel from Russia on Friday for a power plant being constructed in the southern port of Bushehr, state radio reported.


So, if Israel (or the US) bombs the power station now, it will unleash a nuclear disaster in the region and downwind.


Iran to Get Russian Anti-Missile Defense

Russia is preparing to equip Iran with a powerful new air defense system that would dramatically increase its ability to repel an attack, Iran’s defense minister said Wednesday.


Iran receives last nuclear fuel shipment

Iran received the final shipment of uranium fuel from Russia on Monday for its first nuclear plant, state media reported, a key step toward the launch of the reactor’s operations expected later this year.


If Israel or the US bombs the power station now, it will unleash a major radiological disaster in the region.


Livni: Inconceivable that Russia is supplying Iran with nuclear fuel

Foreign affairs minister meets with Russia’s Lavrov in Moscow, slams shipments of fuel to Bushehr nuclear plant despite Tehran’s refusal to stop enriching uranium.


A reminder: Iran is enriching uranium to the 3% needed for a power station, which they are legally allowed to do under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Weapons require better than 90% encirchment, and there is no evidence that Iran is doing that.

What Israel wants is to maintain their monopoly on nuclear power and weapons in the Mideast. Like the classic paranoid, Israel will not feel safe until everyone else is totally helpless before them, but like the true paranoid, Israel will never feel safe no matter how helpless the rest of the world are. Sooner or later, as Israel is doing in Gaza, extermination becomes the final solution.


IAEA makes 1st visit to Iran centrifuge site

Iran has allowed top U.N. nuclear monitors to visit an advanced centrifuge development site for the first time in a gesture of transparency about its disputed atomic programme, diplomats familiar with the matter said.


Now then, about Dimona…


US pushes EU to shut down Iranian banks

This proves that the real issue is not nuclear weapons, but Iran’s Oil Bourse, which threatens the dollar.

The US, over the last 30 years, lost its manufacturing leadership, and no longer able to keep the dollar high with commerce, Bush is attempting to make the dollar strong by making every other competitor weak; by shutting down their banks, by freezing their funds, by bombing their infrastructure.


France backs sanctions on Iran

So now France will violate the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.


Iran pulls assets out of Europe banks

Iran has withdrawn a huge sum of its foreign exchange reserves from European banks and has deposited some of it into Asian banks.

« Based on a decision made by a government working group, Iran has switched to ‘genuine’ assets like gold and shares… We have decreased our foreign currency holdings in international banks, » said Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister for Economic Affairs, Mohsen Talaei.


Sending a message?


US and EU issue new Iran warning

The EU and the US have threatened Iran with further sanctions unless it verifiably suspends nuclear enrichment.

The « additional measures » would include « steps to ensure Iranian banks cannot… support proliferation and terrorism », said a joint statement.


Oh, yes, this is really going to make a huge difference, considering, as reported on the 8th of this month in the on-line version of the « Telegraph » from the UK, that « The president of Iran has ordered the country’s leading banks to transfer billions of dollars of assets from Europe to the Central Bank to prevent them being frozen by international sanctions, according to Western diplomats. »

In the immortal words of my wife’s late grandmother « the horse is already out of the barn » on this one.


Gazprom to develop two or three South Pars blocks in Iran

Russia’s gas giant Gazprom has agreed the terms on which it will be developing “two or three” blocks of the South Pars field in Iran, and also on the participation of its daughter company, Gazpromneft, in an oil project in Iran, Gazprom press office said on Tuesday upon the end of Tuesday’s visit to Teheran by the company’s delegation under Gazprom CEO, Alexei Miller.


Russia is not going to want any interruption of its business dealings (particularly regarding oil) with Iran.

Any Israeli and/or US tactician might want to consider; if there is a pre-emptive attack on Iran, just what will Russia do?

Does any sane person in Washington or Tel Aviv really want to go to war with Russia?


Spy photos reveal ‘secret launch site’ for Iran’s long-range missiles

A close examination of the photographs has indicated that the Iranians are following the same path as North Korea


Folks, remember all those photos the mainstream media showed us that were claimed to be Iraqi WMD sites? Then after the invasion they turned out to be rather benign? (In one case, a building marked as a biological weapons lab on a US photo turned out to be a bakery.)

Then there was the photo of an Iraqi nuclear facility that a sharp-eyed Google Earth user recognized as actually being in another country entirely?

With that sordid history in mind, let us take a real look at the photo from this article, which purports to show where Iran is « developing long-range ballistic missiles capable of reaching targets in Europe ».


AFP: Israel stressed to Bush that Iran is a nuclear ‘threat’: general

« We tried hard to present him the situation as we see it, » Amos Gilad, reserve general and political adviser to Defence Minister Ehud Barak, told Israel’s public radio.

« From a professional point of view the situation is clear: there is an Iranian nuclear threat, » Gilad said.


Translation: Israel wants the US to strike Iran militarily before Bush leaves office, putting our sons and daughters in harm’s way (again) to neutralize what it believes is an existential threat to its existence.

Perhaps this is about time to let Israel go after all those countries it believes threaten its existence… on their own.


Mischievous ‘Filipino Monkey’ could have triggered latest US-Iran row

A heckling radio ham known as the Filipino Monkey, who has spent years pestering ships in the Persian Gulf, is being blamed today for sparking a major diplomatic row after American warships almost attacked Iranian patrol boats.


« Yeah, yeah, sure, sure, it was a radio ham. That’s it. A radio ham. Yeah, yeah, sure, sure. » — Official White Horse Souse

(Ahem)

Okay, White House, HOW DID ‘FILIPINO MONKEY’ KNOW THAT THE IRANIAN SPEEDBOATS WERE GOING TO BE RIGHT NEXT TO THE US WARSHIPS AT THAT PARTICULAR MOMENT?


Bush Promises to Nuke Iran

VIDEO

Whether or not Bush manages to plunge the world into a new dark age may depend upon which version of the recent US/Iran confrontation is believed. So far, Bush’s utter lack of credibility may be working to our advantage. One dares not think of the consequences to world peace if Bush had embarked upon this tour of the middle east with a shred of credibility, a modicum of political capital among every Middle Eastern capital but Jerusalem.


*****Unemployment Spreads As Foreclosure Storm Hits Major Cities

Folks, here is the « sitch ».

The US econ-tanic is down by the bow and taking on water fast. Desperate measures are being taken to keep the ships of state afloat but the ultimate outcome is inevitable (and has been known to be so for some time).

Bush knows that the economy is about to unravel, and he also knows that the people will blame the government for the melt-down and rightly so, seeing all the money that the government borrows without ever really thinking about how it will be repaid. The Social Security Trust Fund has been looted (along with many others such as the Native American Trust Fund and various Federal Employee Pensions). The Federal Reserve is just printing up new money as fast as it can to keep the liquidity up, but the problem has never been liquidity but solvency.

So, the big kaboinga is right around the corner and this is a major reason WHY Bush is pushing so hard to start a new war, because throughout the history of the United States, the government has ALWAYS distracted from domestic economic blunders by distracting the people with a major war. Most of us recall the connection between the Great Depression and WW2, but few recall that the US was in economic trouble just prior to WW1. In both cases, the fever of war masked the symptoms of hard economic times, and tricked people into lowering their living standards thinking it was for the war when in reality it was to salvage the economy. Capitalism only works when the vast majority of people are intentionally kept poor, and war is a great way to impoverish the people without getting them pissed off.

So, this is why that lame stunt with the speed boats and US warships was pulled. It was supposed to be another « Gulf of Tonkin » hoax to kick off a new war.

and as the economy deteriorates, expect Bush to do something, ANYTHING, to get the war back on track.

Because without a war to mask the economic hardships, the people will turn on the government.


Doubts grow over Iranian boat threats

Mystery remains over where voice came from.


Not over here. What nation has a prior history of fake radio messages to trick the US into killing its enemies?

Official Version of Naval Incident Starts to Unravel

Despite the official and media portrayal of the incident in the Strait of Hormuz early Monday morning as a serious threat to U.S. ships from Iranian speedboats that nearly resulted in a « battle at sea », new information over the past three days suggests that the incident did not involve such a threat and that no U.S. commander was on the verge of firing at the Iranian boats.


Was Bush trying to pull a « Gulf of Tonkin » to start his war?


US backs down over Gulf claims

Once again we catch the US Government red-handed lying to justify a war of conquest.

You remain silent at risk of being judged complicit in the crime.


US Complaints of Harassment by Iran “Blown out of the Water” by Video

« The U.S. has a long history of sailing into Iranian waters and otherwise provoking Iran, » according Journalist Reese Erlich, the author the book The Iran Agenda: The Real Story of U.S. Policy and the Middle East Crisis. He also recalls the incident where the USS Vincennes shot down an unarmed Iranian passenger plane and the US tried to cover up the incident. He further states, “In that context, the US version of events must be carefully examined. »


ABC News: U.S. Concedes Voices on Recording May Not Have Been From Iranian Speedboats


Olmert to lay down Israel’s red lines – Israel News, Ynetnews

Translation: Bush gets his marching orders from Tel Aviv as to precisely what he will do geopolitically in the Middle East during his last year in office.


The Israelis Prepare for Bush Visit

As President Bush prepares to visit Israel for the start of an eight-day tour of the Mideast, Israel has two chief issues on its mind: the Palestinians and Iran. But which one does the country want the American president to act on first? Iran.


The Israelis are openly lobbying for the United States to attack Iran. They’re not even trying to keep it low key. If they’re so worried about Iran why don’t the Israelis do the attacking? Because their own children are too precious, while American children, well, heck, dying in Israel’s wars is what they are FOR!


Iran denies threat to blow up US ships

Just stop and think; why would Iran do something so provocative right after the NIE proved to the world that Iran was telling the truth (as had Iraq) and the US was again lying to create a war? Iran has just dodged a bullet. Why would they do something that cranks the war back up?

Isn’t it far more likely that USreal, which HAS been lying all along, is simply lying again to try to restart the war they want?


Israel to brief Bush on options for Iran strike during visit

Israel still doesn’t have ‘smoking gun’


« NIE? What NIE?!? Iran has nookular bombs! God told me so! » — Official White Horse Souse


IAEA chief warns against military action to solve Iranian nuclear issue

In an interview with Egyptian TV, ElBaradei, Director-General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), said a military strike to settle the Iranian nuclear issue would complicate the situation and send the Middle East region into a vicious cycle of violence.


What El Baradei is saying is logical, intelligent, and sane.

This is why the White House will ignore it completely.


Bush Admits He Plans to Attack Iran


Bush needs that war in Iran to distract from the plunging economy.

So, if tomorrow really does bring a huge crash on Wall Street, it would be a great time for « someone » to nuke the New York financial district (freezing the losses and justifying the declaration of a national emergency) and blame Iran for it.


Kristol: Bush Might Bomb Iran If He ‘Thinks Senator Obama’s Going To Win’

On Fox News Sunday this morning, Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol said that President Bush is more likely to attack Iran if he believes Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) is going to be elected.

However, « if the president thought John McCain was going to be the next president, he would think it more appropriate to let the next president make that decision than do it on his way out, » Kristol said, reinforcing the fact that McCain is offering a third Bush term on Iran.


Okay folks, since it does look like Obama will win the election (as long as he stays out of small airplanes), and since Obama will probably not support starting a whole new war with Iran, then the Neocons and Israel-firsters not only have to start a war with Iran while Bush is still in office, but have to have long enough to get the US so stuck in Iran that Obama can’t pull us out without it looking like a new military defeat for the United States. That will take a good three months to do, so to get a good war with Iran going the Israel-firsters have to get it kicked off by end of summer at the latest.

Which is why I an a touch nervous about the Fourth of July as a potential false flag date.


The Raw Story | Bogus Iran story was product of Pentagon spokesman

No reference was made to a US ship nearly firing on an Iranian vessel, or suggestions that the US ships would « explode, » or white boxes dropped into the water in the path of the US fleet.

Porter identifies Bryan Whitman, the Pentagon’s top spokesman, as the culprit for the spurious account. Most of Whitman’s remarks that formed the basis for Starr’s and other stories were drawn from an off the record press briefing that was held on the condition he not be identified as a source.


How desperate is this administration to start a shooting war with Iran?

Apparently, very desperate.

Unfortunately, even having got caught red-handed on this doesnot guarantee that they won’t try something else to get it started.


Policy Shift Seen in U.S. Decision on Iran Talks

The presence of William J. Burns, the under secretary of state for political affairs, at the meeting with Saeed Jalili, Iran’s nuclear negotiator, in Geneva on Saturday, will send « a strong signal to the Iranian government that the United States is committed to diplomacy, » the State Department spokesman, Sean McCormack, told reporters on Wednesday. Mr. McCormack insisted that there had been no change in policy


« …No change in policy » , my astrolabe!

This appears to be a significant change in US policy, a real attempt at engagement rather than saber-rattling.

We’ll have to wait and see what the results of Saturday’s meetings may be, but based on the wailing, moaning, and gnashing of teeth one is getting from the Israeli press on-line this morning, it looks as though the world may have just dodged the bullet of another horrendous world war.


Report: U.S. to station diplomats in Iran for first time since 1979

The United States intends to station diplomats in Iran for the first time since the 1979 Islamic Revolution which saw a severence of ties between the two countries, The Guardian reported on Thursday.


Looks like the war with Iran may be called off, which is why the Pentagon boys are being told to go play nice in Pakistan, to keep them happy. But with the Russian/Iran gas deal, an attack on Iran is an attack on Russia’s strategic interests. Plus that reactor, until it is paid for, is Russian property and currently staffed with Russian nationals.

Of course, the neocon Israeli-firsters are not going to be happy about peace breaking out, and they may still try a false-flag attack of some kind, but for the moment it looks like the wheels have come off of the war wagon.

Le mercure dans les vaccins causent l’autisme / L’armée la plus morale au monde


Vaccines and Autism

The science and the politics

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zrIM2hwrLoc

Mercury in vaccines causes autism

Children of the current generation receive 24 mandatory vaccinations. A generation ago, only 10 were required.

Through vaccinations, children receive 400x the amount of mercury deemed safe by the FDA.

The Hep B routinely given to newborns contains so much mercury preservative that it would normally only be considered safe under standard medical guidelines to give to a 275 pound adult.

Why is this going on?

Politics and corruption.

In the White House, in Congress, in the FDA, in the medical establishment and in the pharmaceutical industry.

Simple guidelines:

1. Never bring your child to be immunized if he or she is already ill

2. Do not allow the doctor to load your child up on multiple immunizations on a single visit just because it is more convenient for him, the doctor.

3. Avoid all unnecessary vaccinations. Make the doctor explain to you in detail the justification for every single one she recommends. They research it before you go ahead.

4. If you feel you must comply, delay them as long as possible to give your child time to grow

La vidéo montre un soldat pointant son arme sur les jambes du manifestant à environ 1,5 mètre et tirer ensuite sur lui une balle de caoutchouc. Abu Rahma a déclaré que la balle a touché son orteil gauche et qu’il a été soigné par l’armée avant d’être libéré par les soldats.

Le tournage a eu lieu en présence d’un lieutenant-colonel, qui est vu tenir le bras d’Abu Rahma son bras lorsque le coup de feu est tiré.
