Settlement activities part of Israeli elections propaganda

PressTV News Video


Israeli regime’s announcement of construction of 430 settler units in the occupied West Bank is not a surprising decision; however it’s been denounced by the Palestinian Liberation Organization as a war crime against the Palestinian people.

Jewish Lobby: From AMIA to White Widow

Posted on  

On November 12, 2014, five major Israeli Hasbara (propaganda) outlets, Fox News, Washington Times, UK’s Daily Mail, UK’s Huffington Post and the NY Post, all reported that Samantha Lewthwaite aka White Widow was killed by a Russian sniper in Ukraine.
On January 30, 2015, Sean MacCormac, a “counterterrorism” expert at the Zionist think-tank, Center for Security Policy, reported that Samantha Lewthwaite, is alive and hiding out in the Somali town of Ras Kamboni on the Kenyan border. If that’s true, then it means Samantha Lewthwaite, a MI6-Mossad agent projected as “Islamist terrorist” didn’t die defending Ukraine’s Jewish regime.
Samantha Lewthwaite is reportedly “widow” of Germaine Lindsay, one of the so-called “suicide bomber” involved in UK’s 7/7 bombing. According to former Israeli Mossad operative, Juval Aviv, 7/7 was work of Mossad-MI6. In July 2014, Jane Calvari, investigative journalist and film-maker also told Iran’sPress TV that Mossad and MI6 were behind the 7/7 false flag operation to demonize British Muslim citizens and make Tony Blair’s military collaboration in Iraq for Israel kosher.
Samantha Lewthwaite disappeared from Britain in 2009. In September 2013, she was spotted among the so-called al-Shabaab terrorists who sieged Israeli-owned-operated Nairobi Shopping Mall. She was also reportedly killed during the hostage rescue operation.
On September 28, 2014, UK’s daily Mirror reported that Samantha was training ISIS female suicide bombers in Syria. One doesn’t need a PhD to understand thatISIS is a US-Israel created terrorist militia to destroy Israel’s enemies in the region.
Another Zionist Jew idiot at the Center for Security Policy, Dr. Luis Fleischman has demanded that Washington should put “crippling sanctions” against Argentine government of Cristina Kirchner for the following reasons:
1. For developing closer relations with Iran, which is an “existential” threat to Israel.
2. For possibly behind the murder of Argentina’s Jewish prosecutor AlbertoNisman.
3. For not condemning the killing of five Jews at Charlie Hebdo and KosherMarket in Paris.
Nisman was a hero, a man of great courage in a country where impunity prevails. Early in 2013, he exposed the presence of Hizbullah cells in 12 Latin American countries.  Mr. Nisman also has strong connections in the United States,” Fleischman said.
Anti-Muslim Frank J. Gaffney is the founder and president of Washington-basedCenter for Security Policy (CSP). The Zionist advocacy group is funded by defense contractors and Israel lobby groups. Gaffney is author of “The Muslim Brotherhood in America“. In 2012, Gaffney accused Jewish human rights group, Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), being anti-Semitic’ and equated it with the former Ku Klax Klan White Supremacist group.
Adrian Salbuchi, an Argentine political analyst, author, speaker and radio/TV commentator in a recent article, entitled AMIA Argentina attack: Mystery behind public prosecutor Nisman’s death, debunked Israeli and Jewish Lobby’s lies against Cristina Kirchner, Hizbullah and Iran.
The “Iran did it” myth went into high gear under the George W. Bush Administration, as part of its strategy of generalized overrunning of the Middle East after 9/11, and especially after July 2006 when Israel’s invasion and bombing of Lebanon and Hezbollah led to Israel’s being routed (an entire Israeli tank division was decimated by Sheikh Nasrallah’s Hezbollah fighters trained and armed by Iran).
Then, just over two months after Israel’s Lebanon incursion, on September 22, 2006 a private meeting took place at the New York Waldorf-Astoria hotel between then Argentine President Nestor Kirchner, his first lady Cristina Kirchner (National Senator and soon to be president) and Foreign Minister Jorge Taiana, and key powerful Jewish leaders including the American Jewish Committee (AJC), the World Jewish Congress (WJC), the B’Nai B’Rith Jewish Masonic Lodge and its militant arm the Anti Defamation League (ADL).
An agreement was reached in which Argentina would accuse Iran of the AMIA attack, to which end president Kirchner immediately dispatched federal prosecutor Alberto Nisman to the US to “gather the necessary evidence against Iran” from the CIA and Mossad intelligence agencies who clearly had their Anti-Iran axe to grind.
As proof of full US and Israeli satisfaction with Argentina, the World Jewish Congress’s political director Rabbi Israel Singer promptly expressed these organizations’ satisfaction with Argentina’s accusations against Iran, proof that the Waldorf-Astoria agreement was being executed by the Kirchner Administration.
Nisman immediately accused former Iranian (moderate) President Ali Rafsanjani and key ministers of masterminding the AMIA attack. However, he was never able produce proper, tenable proof.
He actually requested Interpol to arrest former Iranian ambassador to Argentina, Hami Soleimanpour in London, his arrest by British authorities quickly ended because Nisman submitted no proper evidence of his accusations, even making the Argentine government pick up the £200,000 court costs.
Irrespective of this, over the past decade Nisman became the darling of Jewish entities in the US, Israel and Europe where he regularly visited to brief them on the AMIA/DAIA case. In 2007, he actually went so far as to report on the matter to the Supreme Court – not of Argentina, but of Israel.
Nisman became very popular and was very much in the media but had just one problem: He just could not put together a proper case with proper evidence against Iran, to the growing concern of US Neocons like Republican lobbyist-legislator Ileana Ros-Lethinen (Jewish) and Israel’s successive ultra-right-wing governments.
The case sank to new depths of confusion when in January 2014, former Israeli ambassador to Argentina during the AMIA attack, Yitzhak Aviram, publicly boasted that “the people who blew up the AMIA building have all been executed by us (Israel).” He was immediately hushed up by Israel.
In sync with the Kirchner Administration, Nisman continued to blame Iran, but when the Obama Administration came to power in 2009, the US began having second thoughts about Baby Bush’s aggressive Neocon strategy of “taking out Iran”.
With things growing dramatically worse in Iraq, and a growing resistance from Russia and other players to US/UK war-mongering, America became much more moderate on Iran and, through unofficial and discrete channels it was made clear to President Cristina Kirchner that maybe the time had come for her to have a chat with the Iranians.
Thus, in January 2013, Argentina announced that it would indeed “start talking”to the Iranians – something it had not done for almost seven years – and quickly a “Memorandum of Understanding” was signed which became local law in March 2013. As part of this, a “Commission for Truth” was to be set up (but wasn’t Mr. Nisman and his Mossad and CIA controllers supposed to have in their power all the “damning truth and evidence against Iran”?)
Neocons (mostly Jewish) in the US and Israelis went ballistic with rage. To add insult to injury, last December President Kirchner cleaned out the top brass at the local SI Intelligence Agency, specifically throwing out US/UK/Israeli operator-agent Jaime Stiusso (Jewish).
Let me give due credit to my fellow Canadian-born David Frum, Dubya Bush’s Jewish speech writer, who visited Buenos Aires in the first half of the nineteen-nineties and blamed Iran for the AMIA and Israeli embassy bombing. A claim which was rejected by Jewish investigating journalist and author Gareth Porter.
Despite longstanding investigations by Argentine officials, including testimony by hundreds of eyewitnesses and two lengthy trials, no convincing evidence emerged that implicated Hezbollah,” says political scientist professor Stephen Zunes ( University of San Francisco).
Alas – Buenos Aires with its wonderful serves to hide Zionist crimes beginning with the deportation of Adolf Eichmann to Israel – two topHolohoax promoters,  the Simon Wiesenthal Centre and the International Raoul Wallenberg Foundation have accused Argentinians for still harboring 15 Nazi officials who may had collaborated with Zionists in the 1940s (reported by IPS, April 27, 2005).

Palestinian minors speak of beatings, mistreatment in Israeli custody



(MaanImages/file)
 
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- A lawyer for the Department of Prisoner Affairs visited Palestinian minors in Israeli custody and released a report Saturday on their mistreatment by Israeli forces.Hiba Masalha said in a statement that many of the minors spoke of being assaulted and beaten during their arrests and throughout interrogation.

Malek Hamdan, a 16-year-old Palestinian from Jerusalem, was beaten to the point of his bones being fractured while he was held at the Russian Compound detention center, the statement said.

Additionally, 17-year-old prisoner Muhammad Abd al-Fattah Radwan, from Qalqiliya, told Masalha that during his detention, he was assaulted and dragged for a long distance while handcuffed and blindfolded.

Radwan was held at the al-Jalama detention center for 15 days. He was interrogated for several hours each day while tied to a small chair.

The teen said he was held in a small, filthy, cold room with the lights kept on all day and all night.

Another prisoner, 16-year-old Muhammad Yousef Ikhleil from Hebron, was detained on Nov. 1 while he was on his way home from school. He is currently being held in HaSharon prison.

Ikhleil said he was shot with a live bullet in the thigh, and while he was being detained, he lost a lot of blood as Israeli soldiers beat him.

He was moved to the Soroka Hospital in Beersheba for treatment, where he was kept in the ICU for three days and underwent a bone surgery for his thigh injury.

Ikhleil said he was interrogated for an hour while at the hospital, and that he was shackled to the bed for 24 hours while guards watched him.

He was taken to the al-Ramla Hospital where he stayed for two months before being moved to HaSharon prison.

Meanwhile, 14-year-old prisoner Hussam Omar Muhammad Abu Khalifa from Bethlehem is suffering from depression and needs constant medical care.

Hussam is currently being held in HaSharon prison.

According to a 2015 report by the Child Rights International Network, some 700 Palestinian children per year are arrested and face "ill-treatment" by Israeli forces.

American Sniper and US doom

The film American Sniper has sent the US public into raptures over the “heroic life” of its autobiographical subject Chris Kyle - who has been described as America’s “greatest warrior” soldier.

Last week, the movie premiered in cinemas to rave reviews, earning its director Clint Eastwood a box office smash-hit. Multiple Oscar awards are nominated.

Critics have quibbled about this or that aspect of the cinematography and storyline. But the prevailing impression is that Kyle - a US Marine marksman - was a tragic hero, a guy who honorably served his country during the American war in Iraq.

The film has even been described by some as an “anti-war” movie because it delves into the mental trauma of veterans and the suffering they endure after conflict.

Lost in the discussion is the central issue, which is the criminal nature of American militarism and its destructive impact on millions of innocent people. American Sniper may express certain misgivings about US foreign wars, owing to the psychological consequences on its military personnel.

But in indulging “heroes” like Chris Kyle, the insidious effect is to glorify American war-making. This reinforces American narcissism about its “exceptionalism” as a nation that is intrinsically good, superior and which has the prerogative to wage wars wherever it deems necessary for its “national interests” regardless of international law or morality.

Over one million Iraqis were killed during American military occupation of that country from 2003-2011. The fraudulent pretext for that war – Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction - has been amply documented and is irrefutable. That makes US involvement in Iraq an epic crime, a war of aggression, or, to put it plainly, a state-sponsored terrorist cataclysm.

American government leaders and Pentagon commanders, including incumbent President Barack Obama, should be prosecuted for war crimes based on legal standards established at the Nuremberg Trials for the Nazi Reich.

Astoundingly, the power of American propaganda and brainwashing, facilitated by its corporate media, erases any awareness or discussion of this central issue.

Instead, American angst is consumed in sympathy for “our noble veterans” and their trauma suffered “in the line of duty.”

America’s war machine killing own society

Where are the calls for justice over America’s state-sponsored criminality and genocide of the Iraqi people? Where is there even a semblance of remorse or reparation? American politicians continue to swan around the world, sanctimoniously lecturing others as if they were the epitome of virtue.

Legal justice may be absent, but nevertheless there is a very real form of justice for America’s systematic iniquity. The American war machine may appear to trundle on untrammeled by international law, illegally occupying countries, assassinating with aerial drones on a weekly basis, and subverting foreign nations by covert proxy terrorism, as in Syria and Ukraine. But, unequivocally, this war machine is killing its own society, financially, psychologically and morally.

Chris Kyle is eulogized as “America’s deadliest sniper” having killed singlehandedly over 200 people during his four tours of duty in Iraq. It doesn’t matter if most of his victims were “terrorists” or if he was serving in good faith to protect the lives of other American soldiers. The fact is that Kyle was a cog in a criminal war machine that was engaged in destroying a whole nation. For Americans to celebrate him as a “warrior hero” is indicative of the moral corruption that US society has descended into. It shows how much that violence has become endemic in the American psyche.

Kyle was shot dead at a Texas shooting-range in 2013. His alleged killer, Eddie Ray Routh, was also a veteran, said to be suffering from post-traumatic syndrome. Kyle, who declared his own post-conflict trauma after he was honorably discharged from the Marine Corps in 2009, was working as a counselor for other mentally disturbed US vets. It says something about American social pathology that victims of conflict trauma are treated with “therapy” by letting them fire off assault rifles at shooting-ranges.

Every day, some 20 US military veterans commit suicide, most of them wracked by mental breakdown. That’s over 7,000 deaths every year. Tens of thousands of other veterans from Iraq, Afghanistan and other overseas American killing fields are reckoned to be silent victims of post-conflict trauma, committing acts of violence and crimes against other citizens, or degenerating into self-destructive lives of alcohol and other drug abuse. Similar numbers of American families are ruined by dysfunctional veterans who can’t readjust into normal society.

The economic cost of US wars in Iraq and Afghanistan alone is put at $6 trillion - or a third of America’s crippling national debt pile.

But a proper accounting reveals a much greater toll when the full social damage of these wars is assimilated. Medical bills, unemployment, crime, personal breakdown, unproductive members of society are just the tip of the iceberg.

In real, but intangible magnitude, American society is sitting on a massive “dirty” time-bomb from its criminal war-mongering. This is the “justice” for US wars of apparent impunity. The violence and destruction that American leaders have unleashed - are unleashing – on countries around the world are coming back to haunt and corrode American society to its core. Killing millions of people remotely in far off villages and deserts is exacting a righteous revenge on American society.

The story of Chris Kyle is not just a story about an ill-fated American sniper. It is a metaphor for America as a whole. Part of this destruction, and what makes it so profoundly terminal, is that the American public is largely oblivious to its own collapse. When mass murder of humans is hailed by popcorn-munching morons as heroic, it is a sure sign that America is doomed. Fatally.

Clear crisis in US-Israel bond: Analyst


Press TV

The bond between the United States and Israel is “falling apart”, says a London-based political activist.

Gilad Atzmon made the remarks to Press TV on Saturday while commenting on a  Washington Post report about the US Central Intelligence Agency’s role in assassination of Imad Mughniyah, a high-ranking Hezbollah figure, by Israel’s intelligence service, Mossad, on February 12, 2008.

“For a long while, Israel and the United States had been collaborating in what they regarded security issues,” but now “this bond is now falling apart”, Atzmon said.

In its report, the Post quoted a former US intelligence official as saying that the CIA had been tracking Mughniyah‘s movements prior to the operation and also helped build a bomb, remotely detonated by Mossad after being planted in the spare tire of a parked SUV in the Syrian capital Damascus

“Nobody is surprised by the fact that the CIA was involved in the assassination of Imad Mughniyah. What is slightly unusual is to see the method they were using,” Atzmon said, referring to the car bomb as “not something that’s usually associated with organizations like CIA”.

However, the bond between the US and Israel, Atzmon argued, “introduced some wild methods to the CIA operation”.

Back in 2008, the bond “seemed stronger than ever” but there is “clear crisis” between the two now as “Israeli interests are very different from the American” ones, said the political analyst referring to a widening rift between the Obama administration and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

On January 18, Mughniyah’s son, Jihad, was killed in an Israeli attack on a Hezbollah convoy in Syria’s Golan Heights.



Five other members of the Lebanese resistance movement and an Iranian commander, Brigadier General Mohammad Ali Allahdadi, were among the dead.

Shameless Dershowitz Campaigns For Israel

Alan Dershowitz, recently implicated in a sex scandal, is campaigning for Israel. The shameless Harvard Professor is begging for Jewish support following recent Zionist leaders calls to dissociate from him and his acts.



Interestingly enough, Dershowitz is correct - the West Bank Settlements are not an obstacle as far as peace is concerned. If anything they make the One State Solution into the only viable resolution of the conflict. The real and only obstacle to peace is the embarrassing fact that the word 'peace' doesn't even exist in the modern Hebrew language. The word shalom, usually translated into peace doesn't really mean peace, harmony or reconciliation. Shalom actually means 'security for the Jews.' As such, Shalom is a non empathic judeo-centric notion sustained by blindness to otherness. The only obstacle to peace in the Middle East is the lack of the notion of peace within the Israeli and modern Hebraic culture. Once again, it is the comprehension of Jewish culture that enlighten us on the conflict and the prospect of its resolution.

Stuart Littlewood: They won’t silence George Galloway with half-truths

After providing days of Holocaust coverage the BBC is slammed for inviting ‘anti-Israel MP’ George Galloway to a chat show 

by Stuart Littlewood

28 January 2015
BBC TV are being bad-mouthed for inviting MP George Galloway onto the Question Time panel in the Finchley and Golders Green constituency next week.
Golders Green especially, and neighbouring Finchley to a lesser extent, are large Jewish enclaves in North London. I grew up in Finchley and as a lad used to jump on the number 660 trolley bus that took me through Golders Green en route to the West End. A standing joke among bus conductors was the warning to passengers to have their passports ready.
The Jewish Chronicle reporting the story describes Galloway as an “anti-Israel MP” who “refuses to debate with Israelis”. Finchley and Golders Green MP Mike Freer said the BBC’s invitation was deliberately provocative. “Given what’s going on in the world it is a slap in the face for the local community.”
But not half as stinging as the slap in the face felt by British taxpayers, struggling against austerity cuts, when Chancellor Osborne announced this week that £50 million of OUR money will be lavished on a Holocaust memorial and education centre.
And what is going on in the world that we must pay no attention to the Israeli terror that has stalked the Holy Land for nearly 67 years?
The JC reminded viewers that two years ago Galloway walked out of a debate at Oxford University after discovering his opponent was Israeli, saying “I don’t debate with Israelis”. And earlier this month Galloway interviewed “Israeli antisemite” Gilad Atzmon on his Russia Today television show.
But the JC tells only half the story. At the Oxford debate the motion was: “Israel should withdraw immediately from the West Bank”. Galloway spoke in favour and was followed by another panellist who said, “We wanted peace, we got war, we must not make the same mistake again.”
Galloway interrupted: “You said ‘we’, are you an Israeli? I don’t debate with Israelis, I’ve been misled, sorry. I don’t recognise Israel and I don’t debate with Israelis.” Whereupon he put on his coat and left.
At least that’s how the JC told the story at the time. According to the Daily Mail the opposing speaker, name of Aslan-Levy, complained: “To refuse to talk to someone just because of their nationality is pure racism, and totally unacceptable for a Member of Parliament.”
 Which is pretty rich coming from a citizen of a racist state.
The following message then appeared on Galloway’s Facebook:
“The reason is simple: no recognition, no normalisation. Just boycott, divestment and sanctions, until the apartheid state is defeated. I never debate with Israelis nor speak to their media. If they want to speak about Palestine, the address is the PLO.”
The PLO, of course, acts as the sole legitimate representative of the Palestinian people.
In Galloway’s terms BDS (boycott, divestment and sanctions) means

“no purchase of Israeli goods or services, no normal contacts with individuals or organisations in Israel who support the existence of the racist Apartheid creed of Zionism. That’s what I mean by boycott. That’s what I do. Israelis who are outside of and against the system of Zionism are comrades of mine… My opponent at Oxford University did not meet this test.”

The JC failed to mention that bit.
As for Gilad Atzmon , he was born and raised in Israel but is a fierce critic of the criminal Israeli regime, as many right-thinking Jews are. He is therefore a comrade in the battle to free Palestinians from the hell of Israeli occupation and brutality. So there is nothing odd about Galloway’s decision to interview him.
Besides, Galloway chooses his words carefully. He says he doesn’t debate with Israelis, not Jews. Others cannot bring themselves to debate with North Koreans or ISIS or Al-Qaeda. British foreign secretaries refused to talk with their Iranian counterparts for 30-odd years while turning the sanctions screw. The Pope and the Archbishop of Canterbury would rather hobnob with Israeli rabbis and dignitaries than visit their beleaguered Christian brethren in Gaza. And there’s no chance of Netanyahu dropping in on Haniyeh in Gaza to discuss their love of football.
Mike Freer is a member of Conservative Friends of Israel. He and the people he represents among Jewish communities of Finchley and Golders Green, might learn something valuable if they sit down and listen carefully to George Galloway when Question Time is screened.
