Palestinians Call for Putting Israeli Settlers on Terrorist Lists

I am Palestinian I am not a terrorist


Israel's occupation forces killed Palestinian Authority intelligence officer Mazin Hasan Ureiba at or near Israeli occupation forces checkpoint in Hizma on the occupied West Bank, north of occupied East Jerusalem.

Israel's occupation forces claim that Ureiba would have stepped out of his car at the checkpoint with a gun and started to fire at Israeli occupation forces, injuring one Israeli occupation soldier and one illegal Israeli settler, the former lightly at hand, the latter - a 47 y/o man - supposedly critically.

Few details speak against this: Ureiba was not shot and killed at the checkpoint, but at some distance away from it, there is no weapon or spent shells near his body in any of the photos and based on the way he fell to the ground, he might have been shot from the back.

Ureiba is also claimed to have been shot by the injured illegal Israeli settler, not Israel's occupation forces. He was from Abu Dis, east of occupied East Jerusalem, and a father of four children.

Later, during the evening, Ezz Aldeen Radad, a 21 y/o youth from Tulkarem on the occupied West Bank was shot and killed near the Damascus Gate in occupied East Jerusalem after allegedly stabbing Israel's occupation forces soldier or occupation policeman based on different sources.

The supposedly stabbed occupation forces member suffered 'moderate injuries' according to the Israeli occupation. There is no evidence of medical aid being given to the youth, nor news of how quickly he died.

Ezz Aldeen Radad was stripped and left to lie on ground fully naked, to be gawked at, as Israel's occupation forces commonly do to Palestinians they kill and wound.

The idea behind this is an attempt to humiliate the wounded and the dying, the dead even in death and their families and nation.

This basically primitive ritual of attempted humiliation of the dying and the dead is something which 'Western' mainstream media is totally silent of, as it's too revealing of the barbaric nature of Israeli occupation - as were the crowd of hundreds of illegal Israeli settlers who gathered at the scene to gawk at his dead, naked corpse.

The last victims of the day came during the early hours of the night, as cousins Mustafa Fanoun and Taher Fanoun were shot and killed in occupied Hebron's Tel Rumeida by Israel's occupation forces.

According to unconfirmed claim the boys were underage and would then be the 25th and 26th minors killed during the uprising by Israel.

There is relatively little in the way of information available from news sources at this point, so our readers can expect some details to change as more reports are published.

Israel's occupation forces' claims are the usual ones: The cousins supposedly stabbed Israel's occupation forces soldier - with a knife that afterwards appears to have no blood in it, though the light conditions were dark admittedly - and were shot dead.

There is an unconfirmed claim reported by @PalinfoAr, that the father of Taher Fanoun would have said that his family had found a message from their son, which read "Forgive me". He also published a short video of him and his cousin online only two hours before they were killed.

These facts, more than anything that Israel's occupation forces claim, would in our opinion show that this was likely to be a real attack. But at this point it's unconfirmed and as far as we know, reported by no other source.

Stabbing of occupation forces' soldier no way justifies killing the youths, or any violence towards them beyond the point they would not have caused any threat.

Especially as Israel's occupation forces' photo show only one knife, which would mean that one of the youth would have been unarmed, if this was a real attack against Israeli occupation forces.

Based on photos of the scene of their deaths, they were left without medical aid and Taher appears to have been shot in his stomach.

London School Of Economics – everything but the truth

Report by Gilad Atzmon

The London School of Economics (LSE) shamelessly bowed to Jewish pressure mounted by the infamous ultra Zionist  Board of Deputies Of British Jews (BOD) and removed an academic truth telling blog about Israel and Jewish culture.

The Jewish Chronicle reports today that the LSE has removed a post on its website  pointing at the most obvious and undeniable truth that  Zionism is based on Jewish biblical “notions of separateness, superiority and entitlement”.

Dr Sandra Nasr, a lecturer in the politics of the Middle East at Notre Dame University in Australia, wrote that Jewish notions of “otherness” as the “chosen people” and “colonial plan” to occupy Palestine have led to a deliberate “delegitimising” and “dehumanising” of Palestinians.Dr Nasr  also wrote that  “Zionism, the ideological project to secure a Jewish homeland, relies upon notions of separateness, superiority and entitlement”.

The LSE said that its editorial guidelines had not been followed in publishing the blog. Let’s attempt to learn what are the academic ‘editorial guidelines’ in British academia 2015:
In a statement, a LSE spokesman said: “LSE has received a number of complaints regarding a recent post on the student-led Human Rights blog. The post was by a non-LSE academic and, as noted on the blog, the views expressed were by the author alone.”

Did you get it? Dr Nasr, is not a LSE academic. She also expressed here own views. But it gets funnier...

"With all academic engagement, the School will seek to balance the concerns of research quality, academic freedom and reputation. LSE uses blogs, among other channels, to offer a platform for academic discussion on often contentious and emotive topics. The School has firm guidelines on blog posts and editorial procedure.”

"Regretfully, editorial guidelines were not followed in this instance. The blog post has now been taken down."
I guess that the LSE 'editorial guidelines' are too simple. When it comes to Israel, Jewish politics and culture, the LSE is interested in everything but the truth.

I am convinced  that when Karl Popper wrote The Open Society and Its Enemies, he couldn’t had guess that half a century later, his own university would become an arch enemy of freedom and truth.

Turkish Pundit Goes Ballistic After Poll Shows Belief in Erdogan-Daesh Ties


Concentration of vehicles and direction of truck convoys' traffic into Turkey. Maximum available quality. (Still frames of the Russian Defense Ministry.)

After a poll showed that Turkish Twitter users believe that Turkey gets oil from Erdogan-ISIL ties and the Russian Embassy reposted the results for discussion, the Erdogan-linked pundit who made the poll panicked, disabling his account and blaming Russia for 'sabotage' a day later.

Pro Erdogan Islamist writer conducts a poll. Who buys ISIS oil? 1.Russia 2.Syria 3.Turkey @RT_com
​A columnist at Turkey's Akit newspaper, Abdurrahman Dilipak, known for close connections to the country's president, deleted a poll on his Twitter account after it was found that respondents overwhelmingly answered that Turkey, not Russia or Syria, buys oil from Daesh.
After seeing the initial results, Dilipak argued that Turkey's ruling AKP party "insufficiently informs Turkey's population on the question of buying oil from Daesh," adding that the results confirm this. However, the repost of the poll on the Russian Embassy's Twitter led Dilipak to accuse the embassy of "sabotage" and shut down his twitter account.
"Interesting Poll! Results collected in one hour…"
The poll showed that 78% of respondents believed that Daesh sells its oil to Erdogan's Turkey.
The pundit then shut down his twitter account and brought it back a day later, writing an angry response, claiming that he was sabotaged by the Russian Embassy.
Dilipak is a fierce critic of Turkey's founder, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, and has called for Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to be a new "Caliph" after a return of the Caliphate, which Ataturk abolished in 1924. On Novebmer 10, the 77th anniversary of Ataturk's death, the newspaper Dilipak writes for published an article called "Tyranny Ended in 1938," the year Ataturk died, which led to outrage in Turkish society.

The Bizarre Explanation For Why The U.S. Has Avoided Bombing ISIS Oil Wells

Global Research, December 03, 2015
The Economic Collapse 29 November 2015
Wall Street and BP: Can We "Fix" the Oil and Financial Crisis Before It's Too Late?Why hasn’t the U.S. bombed the oil wells that ISIS controls into oblivion by now?  Would you believe that it is because the Obama administration “didn’t want to do environmental damage”? 
Former Deputy Director of the CIA Michael Morell has publicly admitted that we have purposely avoided damaging the main source of income for ISIS, and his explanation for why we were doing this is utterly bizarre.  But at this point what could the Obama administration say that would actually make sense?  Everyone now knows that ISIS has been makinghundreds of millions of dollars selling oil in Turkey, and that this has been done with the full knowledge and complicity of the Obama White House.  This is potentially the biggest scandal of the entire Obama presidency, and yet so far the Republicans have not jumped on it.
If you or I even gave five bucks to ISIS, we would be arrested and hauled off to Guantanamo Bay.  And yet Barack Obama is allowing ISIS to funnel massive quantities of oil through our NATO ally Turkey, and he is not doing anything to stop this from happening.  It is a betrayal of the American people that is so vast that it is hard to put into words.
By now, virtually everyone on the entire planet knows exactly what is going on.  For example, Iraq’s former National Security Adviser Mowaffak al-Rubaie shared the following on his Facebook page on Saturday
“First and foremost, the Turks help the militants sell stolen Iraqi and Syrian oil for $20 a barrel, which is half the market price.”
Until Russia started bombing the living daylights out of them, an endless parade of trucks carrying ISIS oil would go back and forth over the Turkish border completely unmolested.  Following the downing of a Russian SU-24 bomber by Turkey in an area where many of these trucks travel, Russian President Vladimir Putin decided to publicly air this dirty laundry.  Just check out what he told reporters following a meeting with French President Francois Hollande last week
Commercial-scale oil smuggling from Islamic State controlled territory into Turkey must be stopped, Putin said after meeting Hollande in Moscow.
“Vehicles, carrying oil, lined up in a chain going beyond the horizon,” said Putin, reminding the press that the scale of the issue was discussed at the G20 summit in Antalya earlier this month, where the Russian leaderdemonstrated reconnaissance footage taken by Russian pilots.
The views resemble a “living oil pipe” stretched from ISIS and rebel controlled areas of Syria into Turkey, the Russian President stressed. “Day and night they are going to Turkey. Trucks always go there loaded, and back from there – empty.”
We are talking about a commercial-scale supply of oil from the occupied Syrian territories seized by terrorists. It is from these areas [that oil comes from], and not with any others. And we can see it from the air, where these vehicles are going,” Putin said.
If the Russians could see all of this, the U.S. military could see it too.  In fact, we have far better surveillance capabilities than the Russians do.
So why didn’t Obama put an end to this?
Well, as I mentioned above, former Deputy Director of the CIA Michael Morell told PBS that the Obama administration didn’t want “to create environmental damage”, and he insists that the oil wells are “infrastructure that’s going to be necessary to support the people when ISIS isn’t there anymore”.  The following comes from the Daily Caller
Appearing on PBS’s “Charlie Rose” on Tuesday, Rose pointed out that before the terrorist attacks in Paris, the U.S. had not bombed ISIS-controlled oil tankers.
Morell explained, “Prior to Paris, there seemed to be a judgment that … look, we don’t want to destroy these oil tankers because that’s infrastructure that’s going to be necessary to support the people when ISIS isn’t there anymore, and it’s going to create environmental damage. And we didn’t go after oil wells — actually hitting oil wells that ISIS controls because we didn’t want to do environmental damage and we didn’t want to destroy that infrastructure, right.”
In case you think that this is some sort of a joke, you can watch video of Morell making these comments on PBS below

After the horrific terror attacks in Paris, the Obama administration finally was shamed into bombing a few of these oil trucks.  But 45 minutes before the U.S. military bombed them, they dropped leaflets telling the truck drivers to “get out of your trucks now and run away from them”.
What kind of “war on terror” are we running?
Why in the world would we want to warn the terrorists to get away from their trucks?
Meanwhile, things between Russia and Turkey continue to get even more tense.  The Russians have slapped severe economic sanctions on the Turks, they have shut down all channels of communication with Turkey’s military, and they are bombing every Turkish vehicle that they can find inside Syria.  The following comes from a report that was put out by Debka
In the last two days, Putin has been found saying one thing and doing another: Although he declared that Russia would not go to war with Turkey for “stabbing it in the back”, debkafile’s military and intelligence sources report that since Wednesday night, Nov. 25,Russian heavy bombers and warplanes have been hitting every Turkish vehicle moving or stationary inside Syria.
They bombed the Bab al-Hawa border crossing, located on the Turkey-Syria frontier, as well trailers and tractors parked in an area belonging to the Turkish Humanitarian Relief Foundation, on the Syrian side of the border.
As I wrote about the other day, it has been documented that our NATO ally Turkey has been “training ISIS militants, funneling weapons to them, buying their oil, and tending to their wounded in Turkish hospitals”.  Now, heavy bombing by the Russians threatens to cut off those links
In addition to punishing the Turkish leader, Russia’s massive military operations in Syria aim to degrade the rebel groups fighting the Assad regime. Heavy bombing sorties this week on the Syrian-Turkish border are cutting off tens of thousands of rebels from their only source of fresh supplies of weapons, ammo, food and fighters, leaving them without a line of retreat and nowhere to send their wounded.
At this point, Russia and Turkey are very close to a state of war.
But as a member of NATO, the United States is obligated to help protect Turkey if a full-blown shooting war does break out.
We are closer to World War III than we have been in decades, and yet most Americans are still completely and totally oblivious to what is taking place.
Hopefully cooler heads will prevail, because things over in the Middle East threaten to spiral completely and totally out of control.
