JERUSALEM; THE UNHOLIEST CITY IN THE UNHOLY LAND

IN its long and checkered history, Jerusalem has been occupied by dozens of conquerors.

Babylonians and Persians, Greeks and Romans, Mamluks and Turks, Britons and Jordanians – to mention just a few.

The latest occupier is Israel, which conquered and annexed Jerusalem in 1967.

(I could have written “East Jerusalem” – but all of historical Jerusalem is in today’s East Jerusalem. All the other parts were built in the last 200 years by Zionist settlers, or are surrounding Arab villages which were arbitrarily joined to the huge area that is now called Jerusalem after its occupation.)

Israel's top news channel: Gov't asked us to show more Gaza devastation

Israel: Human Rights Abuser Writ Large

Israeli policy is longstanding. Reflecting anti-Palestinian state terror. Institutionalized racism writ large. Vicious repression.

Israel at the Moral Cross-Roads

A tragedy, one of thousands that could have been averted: the killing by two Palestinians of four rabbis at morning prayer in a synagogue in Har Nof, a West Jerusalem ultra-Orthodox Jewish neighborhood, the two assailants in turn killed. Violence is contagious, endemic, even understandable, in the setting, but never exonerative—from whichever direction it comes. The problem is that precast judgment easily follows when the framework for assigning blame is skewed in favor of the strong, the powerful, the ones enjoying favor in the international community and, secondarily, having unlimited resources to present their case—regardless of merit.

Anti-Zionism Continues to Rise

Rivlin, who is the president of the Academy of Sciences and Humanities in Israel, seems to have noticed this backlash in Europe. The Jerusalem Post cited him pronouncing a devastating blow on Israel. Rivlin said,

“The time has come to admit that Israel is a sick society, with an illness that demands treatment.”[3]

Rivlin said that the regime has “forgotten how to be decent human beings.”[4]

That certainly is a bad rap for the Zionist regime—and it is just the beginning. Last month, the Israeli journalist Gideon Levy of Haaretz called Jerusalem “the capital of apartheid.”[5]

One Palestinian child has been killed by Israel every 3 days for the past 13 years

Official statistics from the Ministry of Information in Ramallah have revealed that 1,518 Palestinian children were killed by Israel's occupation forces from the outbreak of the second Intifada in September 2000 up to April 2013. That's the equivalent of one Palestinian child killed by Israel every 3 days for almost 13 years. The ministry added that the number of children injured by the Israelis since the start of the Second Intifada against Israel's occupation has now reached 6,000.

"The International Day for the Protection of Children is on June 1," said a spokesman, "but Palestinian children are still subject to attacks by the Israelis and Jewish settlers on an almost daily basis."

Is holocaust orthodoxy paving the way to genocide in Palestine?

But what does Holocaust denial really mean? Begin with the word Holocaust. The Holocaust2 (spelled with a capital H) refers to the killing of six million Jews by the Nazis during World War II. It is supposed to be the German’s “Final Solution” to the Jewish problem. Much of the systematic extermination was to have taken place in concentration camps by shooting, gassing, and burning alive innocent Jewish victims of the Third Reich.

People like Germar Rudolf, Ernst Zundel, and Bishop Williamson who do not believe this account and who dare to say so in public are reviled as bigots, anti-Semites, racists, and worse. Their alternate historical scenarios are not termed simply revisionist, but are demeaned as Holocaust denial. Rudolf and Zundel were shipped to Germany where they were tried, convicted, and sentenced to three and five years, respectively. Williamson may not be far behind.

Sources close to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas have said that the politician asked the German Foreign Minister, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, to pass along a serious message to Israel about his intention to dissolve the Palestinian Authority.

Al-Quds newspaper quoted Palestinian saying, "President Mahmoud Abbas has grown quite angry at Israel's continued escalations and provocations in the West Bank and Jerusalem. He told the German Foreign Minister: 'enough is enough! Let them take the keys and manage the occupied Palestinian territories'. He is threatening to dissolve the Palestinian Authority".

FLASHBACK - The Double Identity of an "Anti-Semitic" Commenter

Like many other news websites, Common Dreams has been plagued by inflammatory anti-Semitic comments following its stories. But on Common Dreams these posts have been so frequent and intense they have driven away donors from a nonprofit dependent on reader generosity.

A Common Dreams investigation has discovered that more than a thousand of these damaging comments over the past two years were written with a deceptive purpose by a Jewish Harvard graduate in his thirties who was irritated by the website's discussion of issues involving Israel.

His intricate campaign, which he has admitted to Common Dreams, included posting comments by a screen name, "JewishProgressive," whose purpose was to draw attention to and denounce the anti-Semitic comments that he had written under many other screen names.

Zionist violence escalates in Occupied Palestine

it is downright disingenuous and simply plain wrong to define an “Israeli” settler as a civilian and by extension a victim of “terror”. The Zionist project from its very inception in the 19th century, brought Jewish immigrants from all over the world into Palestine in order to violently seize Palestinian land and dispossess the indigenous Palestinians so that “Israel” could come into being. The mere length of time that a squatter has resided on land that does not belong to him can never transform a bogus claim into a right. “Israel” is an illegitimate entity and “Israeli” is a manufactured label meant to give supremacist settlers a national identity.

The attack on a synagogue in Jerusalem today took place in Har Nof, a Jewish neighborhood built over the ruins of Deir Yassin, a Palestinian village whose inhabitants were wiped out on April 9, 1948. The Deir Yassin Massacre delivered a clear message to the Palestinian people. The Jewish militias were driven by genocidal inclinations and the Arabs better run for their lives.

Catholic Bishops condemn "Israeli occupation" & mistreatment of Palestinians; tell Jews that "use of scripture to wrongly justify injustices is not acceptable."

As our crazy federal government constantly issues declarations supporting their undying support for our 'special friend' Israel, it's worth recalling a groundbreaking religious document from the Vatican just four years ago. For all the religious people who are deluded into believing that Jews are "God's chosen people" and that they therefore must support the actions of the current country called Israel, here is a reality check for you. Below the excerpts from the Vatican document SYNODUS EPISCOPORUM BULLETIN is the official LibertyFight.com 'Resolution that Israel Isn't Our Special Friend And Doesn't deserve Special Privileges Based on a Misinterpretation of Scripture'.

The Decision by the International Criminal Court (ICC) not to Prosecute Israel for War crimes Questions its own Viability

The decision this week by the ICC not to investigate the point-blank killing, by Israeli commandos, of nine unarmed Turkish passengers on board the Mavi Marmara aid vessel in 2010, although there was a ‘reasonable basis’ to believe that Israel had committed a war crime in its maritime attack upon civilians, seems indefensible.

The decision not to prosecute will inevitably raise questions about the integrity and impartiality of the ICC in the face of political pressure by the global Israel lobby that already operates in Washington, London and Brussels.

The reason given by the ICC chief prosecutor that the court is more concerned with larger scale incidents, ignores the fact that this attack upon civilian passengers in international waters was part of a six year campaign by the Israeli government to effect an illegal regime change in Gaza by means of a blockade of essential goods to 1.8 million Palestinian Arabs – that still continues today.

Hilary Mantel has claimed that the Coalition’s policies towards the poor and immigrants are more brutal than the measures introduced by Thomas Cromwell, during an interview in which she attacked a “mood of harshness” which has taken hold in Britain.

Cromwell To Ebenezer Pratt of the Mulheim Synagogue in Amsterdam, 16th June 1647:

— “In return for financial support will advocate admission of Jews to England: This however impossible while Charles living. Charles cannot be executed without trial, adequate grounds for which do not at present exist. Therefore advise that Charles be assassinated, but will have nothing to do with arrangements for procuring an assassin, though willing to help in his escape.” —

Plaque Dedicated to USS Liberty is Specific with Historical Fact

The USS Liberty plaque was preliminary dedicated by a small group of veterans at Veterans Memorial Park Manistee, MI on October 10, 2014.

Especially outstanding is the leadership of the Manistee City council which had the courage to place the plaque in open public display and would not let the wording be softened.

Israel may face EU sanctions for hampering 2-state solution – secret document

Israel could soon find itself in trouble and face the wrath of Brussels: any further attempts to pose obstacles to a two-state solution with occupied Palestine could result in sanctions, Haaretz revealed, citing a 'confidential' EU document.

The classified paper was originally intended for internal circulation among the 28 member states, but word of its existence reached Israel after some of its diplomats in the EU leaked the fact to the Foreign Ministry back home.

Although the Israelis could not secure the full text of the document, some important details have come out, thanks to three EU diplomats and two senior Israeli officials.

Israel will never stop its settlement constructions in occupied East Jerusalem, according to Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman.

“One thing should be clear: we will never accept the definition of building in Jewish neighborhoods of Jerusalem as settlement activity,” Lieberman told a news conference. “We won't accept any limitation on building in Jewish areas of [East] Jerusalem.”

Lieberman’s comments come just four days after Israel approved plans to construct some 200 homes in Ramot, despite clashes in the region prompted by settlement expansion.

Behind the USS Liberty Cover-up

“The Day Israel Attacked America,” an investigation into Israel’s deadly June 8, 1967 attack on the USS Liberty at the height of the Arab-Israeli Six-Day War, was aired recently on Al Jazeera America.

Directed by British filmmaker Richard Belfield, the documentary confirms not only that the attack on the U.S. Navy spy ship was deliberate — an undisputed fact long accepted by all but the most shameless Israeli apologists — but reveals, perhaps for the first time, how Tel Aviv was able to induce the U.S. government to cover up an attack that killed 34 and injured 171 of its own seamen by a supposed “ally.”

This cash flow from Germany went directly to the Israeli occupation machine that has made the Palestinians indirect victims of the Holocaust.

"The Israeli authorities are, in my opinion, in no position to deny the Palestinian people support from the international community," he told Al Jazeera.

The move may seem like a reckless ratcheting up of tensions between the old Cold War rivals. The Tupolev Russian strategic bombers in question are nuclear-capable, and as expected the decision to patrol the Caribbean seas sparked a stern response from Washington, warning Moscow of risks.

They fantasized about bombing Iran and about buying the New York Times because they said it’s biased against Israel. Both are bound to play an outsized role in the 2016 presidential elections by flooding the campaign with money to support their favored candidates. In a post-Citizens United world, Adelson and Saban are kings, and Israel will be the beneficiary of their largesse if the donors have the ear of a future president.

Five days after the attack, Israeli Ambassador Avraham Harman worried that the deliberate nature of the attack had been uncovered, and cabled Foreign Minister Abba Eban that a source code-named "Hamlet" had told him that the Americans had:"clear proof that from a certain stage the pilot discovered the identity of the ship and continued the attack anyway."

There was no immediate Israeli confirmation of Norwegian media reports that Dr Mads Gilbert, a trauma surgeon and far-left political activist, had been banned for life from entering Gaza for security reasons.

“This is not about me.

A Conservative Total for U.S. Aid to Israel: $91 Billion—and Counting

Flashback: 2001. With the turmoil surrounding the presidential election essentially freezing Congress into inaction, this is probably a good time to take another look at aid to Israel. The common figure given for U.S. aid to Israel is $3 billion per year—$1.2 billion in economic aid and $1.8 billion in military aid. As impressive as this figure is, however, since it represents about one-sixth of total U.S. foreign aid, the true figure is even more remarkable. It is difficult, however, to arrive at an exact number. Much of the money the U.S. gives Israel is buried in the budgets of other government agencies, primarily the Defense Department (DOD). Other subsidies come in a form that isn’t easily quantifiable, such as the early disbursement of aid, which allows Israel to gain (and the U.S. taxpayer to lose) the interest on the unspent money.
Note: This does not include tax deductible donations to organizations like the Israel Defense Forces!

Sheldon Adelson's Dismissal of Israeli Democracy Draws Silence From Groups He Backs

Recipients of casino billionaire Sheldon Adelson’s largesse are dodging questions about his latest salvo against Israeli democracy.

Adelson, a leading Republican donor, has long stood out among American Jews for his conservative views. He may have stepped farther outside of the American Jewish mainstream than ever before, however, in statements at a conference in Washington on November 9 in which he seemed to write off Israel as a democratic state.

“I don’t think the Bible says anything about democracy,” Adelson said. “[God] didn’t talk about Israel remaining as a democratic state… Israel isn’t going to be a democratic state — so what?”

While Anti-Defamation League national president Abraham Foxman has slammed Adelson’s remarks, leaders of groups that have taken money from Adelson have not responded to requests to address his statements.

So the EU is as much a sell-out to Israel as the US is. Imagine my shock.

U.S. Army denies it bought Israel Iron Dome missile system

The U.S. Army denies Israeli media reports that the U.S. has purchased Iron Dome, the Israeli-made, U.S.-financed missile-defense system that some observers say saved thousands of lives in the recent Gaza conflict.

“News reports about a sale of Iron Dome to the Army aren’t true,” Dov Schwartz of Army Public Affairs told Watchdog.org in an email. “The Army hasn’t purchased Iron Dome.”

4 Turkish terrorists caught in Texas after being smuggled across border

Four men flew from Istanbul through Paris to Mexico City in late August, where they were met by a Turkish-speaking man who stashed them in a safe house until their Sept. 3 attempt to cross into the U.S. over the border with Mexico.

Their capture by the Border Patrol in Texas set off a fierce debate over the men’s intentions, with some members of Congress saying they were terrorist fighters. Homeland Security officials, including Secretary Jeh Johnson, countered that they were part of the Kurdish resistance which, like the U.S., is fighting the Islamic State’s advance in Iraq.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Notice how Turkey criticizes Israel's attack on Al Aqsa and suddenly Turks are now "terror suspects" here in the US!

The ICC Prosecutor did not decide Gaza is occupied (or anything else of substance)

The Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court announced last week that she would not be proceeding with an investigation of Israel regarding the Gaza Flotilla incident (Mari Marvara) in 2010. The basis for the dismissal was jurisdictional – the case did not meet the Court’s statutory requirement of gravity. In other words, the crimes alleged, even if true, did not rise to the necessary level of badness to warrant the attention of a court designed to deal with mass atrocities.

“STEALING PALESTINE: WHO DRAGGED PALESTINIANS INTO SYRIA’S CONFLICT?”

But between my two trips to the camps – in 2012 and 2014 – there has been a marked hardening of Palestinian sentiment.

Western media’s image of Iran serves only Neo-Con warmongers

Hyperbole and false representations, smearing and painting an unfair image of Iran, routinely surface every so often in the mainstream media.

It’s nothing new, but nonetheless such slurs are very damaging, and such false perceptions often remain with people. They linger especially, when the same lies are repeated again and again in the media. “Repeat a lie often enough and it eventually becomes the truth.”

Are we all watching H.R. 707? The Anti-Semitism Bill?

No matter what, the November 24th deadline for Iran to comply with Israel's behind-the-scenes demands will come and fall short...all Israel has to do then is attack Iran and our government has already pledged our troops in any retaliation in defense of Israel.

Surely we know, Iran is just another country on the list of "to be conquered" Middle Eastern states...and if you dare level some LEVEL criticism against the terrorist state of Israel, as we all did when the slaughtered over 2,100 Palestinians during Operation Protective Edge(specifically mentioned in this bill!!!); off to the gulag with ya!!!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This bill should be struck down by the Supreme Court (but won;t be) as it is a violation of the First Amendment, as well as prior restraint. The USA is an occupied nation, and Washington DC is a puppet regime for Israel.

Bibi tries the Iran bomb scare one more time

Netanyahu claimed on Monday that a hasty nuclear agreement between Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council – Russia, China, France, Britain and the US — plus Germany would allow Tehran “to rush to the bomb”.

“There are reports that the P5+1 countries are close to a deal with Iran on Iran’s nuclear program,” Netanyahu said, adding, “I call on the P5+1 countries – don’t rush into a deal that would let Iran rush to the bomb…Iran must not be allowed to become a nuclear threshold power,” Bibi said.

Dual Citizens in Congress?

“You are not entitled to that information!” That’s what a staffer in Senator Markey’s office bluntly told me when I called to ask for help in identifying Members of Congress who hold dual citizenship.

Seems that’s a question no one wants to hear. The Internet sources are flaky, with only unreliable estimates for both House and Senate. So I telephoned the Washington, DC offices of my three Congressional representatives from Massachusetts to ask for their help in obtaining definitive data from the Congressional Research Service (CRS), which responds to Congressional offices, but not to the general public.

U.S. Resolution With 172 Cosponsors Condemns "Anti-Semitism, Comparison of Israel to Nazis;" Decries Holocaust Skepticism & Seeks More Law Enforcement Training

Congressional House Resolution 707, which has 172 cosponsors of both parties, was amended unanimously by the Committee on Foreign Affairs in late September. Perusing this document shows how literally crazy and compromised our so-called "elected representatives" are. HR707 prefaces the litany of Zionist directives with an absurd platitude, claiming "Congress supports freedom of expression and the right to criticize any government or its policy." But it continues to decry protests, signs, and cartoons "accusing Israel of carrying out a Holocaust against Palestinians. It also urges "support for law enforcement and civil society training programs," and complains that "a majority of people surveyed overall have either not heard of the Holocaust or do not believe it happened as has been documented by factual accounts and recorded by history.."

US Commitment to Terror, Expansionism, Maintains Israel’s Illegal Wall

snip: For approximately 40 years, the US has vetoed, generally alone (aside from Israel), every UN resolution demanding that Israel comply with this worldwide legal, democratic consensus. The vote is typically 165 countries against the US and Israel, and sometimes five or six other countries (European-conquered lands and some tiny islands such as Micronesia).

Obama has continued the reign of terror and expansion, specifically rejecting, at the UN, the demand for Israel to cease even future settlement activities, let alone abandon its current illegal settlements, all war crimes. This particular resolution was brought at the 15 member Security Council, and received 100% approval aside from Obama’s isolated vote of rejection, which is enforceable only due to the US dedication to terrorism and democracy-prevention.

Israeli settlers torch mosque, copies of the Quran in West Bank


A group of Israeli settlers broke in and torched a mosque in the Palestinian village of al-Mughayyir near Ramallah in the occupied West Bank early Wednesday, locals told Ma’an news agency, hours after settlers attempted to assault several Palestinian security officers in Nablus.

Witnesses, who went to the mosque at around 4:40 am to perform dawn prayer, said the settlers burnt 12 copies of the Quran, Islam’s holy book, and set the carpets of the first floor of the two-story building on fire.

Racist slogans were also spray painted on the walls of the mosque, witnesses added.

The same mosque has been targeted by Israeli settlers before, locals told Ma’an.

Oligarchs for Israel

When Pat Buchanan described the American Congress as "Israeli-occupied territory" in the run up to the first Gulf war, he clearly underestimated the problem. Although Sheldon Adelson and Haim Saban didn’t mean to underscore and enlarge Buchanan’s point, this they surely did at the first national conference of a new pro-Israel lobbying group, the Israeli-American Council (IAC), where the two multi-billionaires appeared together on stage. It was an enlightening colloquy.

Adelson, whose casinos have made him one of the richest people in the world, pumped $150 million into the Republican Party in 2012, and is expected to give at least as much in the 2016 campaign. Saban who made his fortune on the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, has given a comparable amount to the Democrats, including the money to build Democratic National Committee headquarters in Washington: he has pledged to donate "whatever it takes" to elect Hillary Clinton in 2016.

The Con-man Cornered: Obama and the Democratic Debacle of 2014

The meteoric rise to power of Barack Obama in 2008 was propelled by one of the greatest demagogic US Presidential campaigns of all time: To millions of young Americans, he promised to end the US wars in the Middle East. To millions of working and middle class voters, he promised to end the economic crisis by confronting Wall Street. To women, he promised to protect and expand their social rights and end the gender gap in wages and salaries.

To human rights and civil liberties activists, he promised to end police state surveillance and torture, and to close the Guantanamo concentration camp, which had denied political prisoners a fair and open trial. To blacks, he promised higher living standards and greater racial equality in income. To Latino-Americans, he promised immigration reform facilitating a path to citizenship for long-term residents. Overseas he spoke in Cairo of a “new chapter” in US policy toward the Muslim world. To Russia, he promised President Putin he would ‘reset relations’ – toward greater co-operation.

Israel’s Threat Scenario: “One-State Solution” for Israel – Palestine, Proposed Annexation of Over 60 % of West Bank

snip: Predominantly, radical Zionists dominate public opinion not only in Israel but also in the USA and increasingly in Germany. The strength of the forces behind Bennett and the Netanyahu government is demonstrated by the casino mogul Sheldon Adelson and media mogul Haim Saban. Both belong to the so-called Zionist mainstream. And their political ideas are chilling. If the “Two -State Solution” fails, it would make Israel an “Apartheid-State.” For Adelson this would not represent a problem: “So Israel won’t be a democratic state, so what?” At least, Haim Saban wants to secure “the future of a democratic Israel”. For Adelson, these ideas would be “committing demographic suicide”. Saban offered a charming alternative to President Obama’s negotiation efforts to reach a fair agreement with Iran. He “would bomb the living daylights out of these sons of bitches”. And Netanyahu would perhaps left “screwed”.

Netanyahu Is a National Security Risk—And Washington Knows It

Last month, an anonymous U.S. official stirred a tempest in a teapot when he called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “a chickenshit” in comments to the Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg. The insinuation was that while Netanyahu will happily rile up his right-wing base on issues related to Palestine or Iran, he lacks the political courage to take meaningful steps to resolve either conflict.

State Department officials scurried to disavow themselves of the remark. But the incident revealed an increasingly common conclusion in Washington: Netanyahu’s foot-dragging on Middle East peace is not only frustrating for the United States—it’s dangerous.

“Chickenshit” Israeli PM Alienating Entire World

The Jewish year 5775 has not started off well for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The explosive, mendacious leader of the sociopathic Zionist occupation government in Palestine took a direct hit from Israel’s daily newspaper Ha’aretz on October 3, and it’s been downhill ever since. Israel’s genocidal atrocities in Gaza this past summer and the Zionist extremist government’s insistence on building another 2,610 illegal Jewish dwellings in Arab East Jerusalem—after destroying people’s homes and businesses, of course—have even friends of Israel disturbed. The Ha’aretz editorial’s subheading, “The PM’s masks are being torn off, and the world is losing patience in the face of Israel’s policy of deception,” indicate the brutal truth about Israel is advancing, and that is a sign of hope for more rational international relations.

“Civility”: Israel Lobby’s New Weapon Against Free Speech on US Campuses

As I was driving through Indiana en route to Michigan this weekend, I saw this billboard for a local sheriff’s election campaign. There, above the uniformed police officer with his military-style crew cut, is the slogan “Return to Civility.”

It seemed the perfect metaphor for what “civility” has come to mean on US campuses: the forceful policing, at the behest of Israel lobby groups, of any discourse or activism critical of Israel.

In the wake of Israel’s latest Gaza massacre, the civility police are cracking down hard. Most notoriously, administrators and trustees at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have used the excuse of “civility” to fire Steven Salaita for his strong criticisms of, among other things, Israel’s slaughter of hundreds of children in Gaza.

But civility crackdowns are now breaking out across the country.
