Washington’s Second Front in Information War against Russia

Having lost the propaganda battle over the doomed airliner, Washington seems intent on opening up a second front in the information war, alleging cross-border shelling by Russian forces.But such is American arrogance and deceit, this information war runs a very real risk of inciting a full-on shooting war between world powers.

Meanwhile, the Russian military command has furnished European Union officials in Brussels with a dossier of its own evidence, based on satellite, radar and air traffic control communications that tend to show a completely different set of circumstances over the downing of the airliner. Russia’s information, which is verifiable unlike Washington’s with-held «secret intelligence», strongly suggests that Malaysia Airlines MH17 was taken down by Western-backed Ukrainian military forces under the command of the Kiev regime.

US is buying disputed Iraqi Kurdish Crude Oil

A Marshall Islands-flagged tanker ‘United Kalavrvta’ carrying crude oil from Iraqi Kurdistan is hours away from arriving at a U.S. port in Texas, according to ship tracking satellites, despite Washington’s long-standing concern over independent oil sales from the autonomous region. It would be at least the second time a U.S. company has taken delivery of oil that the Baghdad government says was smuggled from the country.

Deconstructing the Zionist View of Gaza’s Horror - An Analysis by Lawrence Davidson

The truth is that outside Israel, Washington, D.C. and various other Zionist strongholds, David Harris’s worldview is crumbling. And, as the numbers of those who share his viewpoint shrinks, other counter-groups, such as the boycott Israel movement, grow in number. Sooner or later a tipping point will be reached and then things will change and probably do so rapidly. On that day what will David Harris do? Blame it all on anti-Semitism? Take residence at the top of Masada? Or grudgingly seek to make his peace with the Palestinians?,

Hamas is a Creation of Mossad

Let us not forget that it was Israel, which in fact created Hamas. According to Zeev Sternell, historian at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, “Israel thought that it was a smart ploy to push the Islamists against the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO)”.

Egypt destroys 13 more Gaza tunnels

Egypt has demolished 13 more tunnels between the country and the Gaza Strip, which has been under an Israeli blockade for the past seven years.

The army said on Sunday that it had destroyed the tunnels in the Sinai Peninsula, but did not say when they were demolished.

The tunnels are the only lifeline for Palestinians living under the Israeli siege and Egypt has so far laid waste to 1,639 of them.

Since the ouster of Egypt’s former president Mohamed Morsi last July, the Egyptian military has launched a campaign to destroy the tunnels, preventing the people in Gaza from bringing in most of their basic goods like construction materials, food, and fuel into the coastal enclave, which has been hit by Israeli airstrikes since July 8.

Netanyahu’s Bloody Calculations

Unless the underlying issues are addressed, the next ceasefire will not stop this tragic cycle. The stage will be set for another round, when Israel will mow the lawn again. Absent regime change in Israel, the cycle will continue until and unless political leaders in the U.S.-led West summon political courage they have not displayed and acknowledge that the objectives the current Israeli government is pursuing are not in their own country’s interests, or even in Israel’s.

As the sequence of events preceding the current round of violence makes clear, Netanyahu saw as the biggest threat to that strategy the reconciliation agreement between Hamas and Fatah, the dominant party in the Palestinian Authority. If the agreement held, excuses for not being serious about negotiating a comprehensive peace agreement and establishing a Palestinian state to replace the occupation would become too flimsy to maintain.

GAZA GENOCIDE

For 66 years Gaza Strip (the present day Auschwitz) was subject to incremental Genocide by Israel. Gaza Strip itself was created by Israel in its earliest war crimes.

In the spring and summer of 1948 Israel uprooted all the population of 247 Palestinian villages in southern Palestine and herded them in a tiny strip, hence named Gaza Strip. Thus the largest and longest-duration concentration camp in the world was created by Israel. Since then Israel continued to exterminate as many refugees as possible.

Does Russia (And Humanity) Have A Future? — Paul Craig Roberts

The Russian government and Europe need to look beyond Washington’s propaganda, because the reality is much worse.

NATO commander General Breedlove and Senate bill 2277 clearly indicate that Washington is organizing itself and Europe for war against Russia.

The US Senate’s Russian Aggression Prevention Act, about which I reported in my previous column, does even more mischief than I reported.If the bill passes, which it likely will, Washington becomes empowered to bypass NATO and to grant the status of “allied nation” to Ukraine independently of NATO membership. By so doing, Washington can send troops to Ukraine and thereby commit NATO to a war with Russia.

Palestinian Resistance: an icon for those who long to live free - by Susan Abulhawa

Palestinians have done it all. We choose resistance, always, in all its forms. We resist because it is our right. Because we are the indigenous people of the land and we have nowhere else to go or belong. Because our parents, grandparents, great grandparents and on and on are buried in this soil. Because we are right and our cause is just. We resist passively and actively. We resist violently and non-violently. It is our legal and moral right to resist with whatever means available to us against what has been accurately called “incremental genocide.”

Seven Palestinians killed in protests across West Bank

As Palestinians in Gaza buried the dozens killed during the eighteenth consecutive day of Israel’s relentless military assault by air, land and sea, Israeli fire killed at least seven during protests in the occupied West Bank.

At least ten Palestinians have been killed by the Israeli army and by Israeli civilians in the West Bank since the beginning of the Gaza assault on 7 July as Palestinians in the West Bank and present-day Israel rise up in solidarity with Gaza, where at least 843 Palestinians have been killed since the beginning of the onslaught.

Samantha Power And The Age Of Genocide; Rwanda 1994 vs Gaza 2014

America has once again exercised its political clout in favor of the perpetrators of crimes against humanity; its voice the lone one to vote against a call to investigation by UN Human Rights Council into the Israeli offensive’s violations of international laws. Power and her bosses give their full support to Israel’s continued crimes against humanity and genocide.

Twenty years after Rwanda, the Genocide in Gaza is ignored. Samantha Power has either lost all memory, or she has lost all humanity –but without a doubt, she is completely void of integrity, and complicit in the crimes against Palestinians.

VIRTUAL 9-11: Will the US & Israel Hack The US Banking System Computers and Falsely Blame It On Iran (or Syria or Russia or China)?

So what it looks like is being planned, and pre-sold to the American people with all these stories about celebrities' personal information being hacked and made public (an activity that produces no profit for the hackers other than news headlines), and the "Syrian" (nudge nudge wink wink) hack of the AP Twitter feed that shocked the US stock market, is that the US Government will itself take down the US financial computers, and blame it on Iran /Russia/ China/Al Qaeda/Syria/Arabs and others to be named as convenient. This gets Wall Street and Washington DC off the hook, because now the financial melt-down is an act of war, rather than the result of decades of Wall Street crime and corruption and the predations of Private Central Banks. US banks have already been hit with cyber attacks, to set the stage.

American choice: genocide or justice?

America today is the main sponsor of the Israeli regime and all its decades-old crimes against humanity.

Just days before Operation Protective Edge opened on July 8 under the cynical pretext of three Israeli teenagers being kidnapped and killed by unknown parties, US President Barack Obama announced an extra $430 million in aid to Washington’s most indulged foreign regime – in Tel Aviv. This is on top of the $3 billion that Israel receives every year for the past decades from the American government siphon of its taxpayers. Hard-pressed American households are getting their drinking water supplies cut off for unpaid utility bills in Detroit and other US cities, but the benevolence of Washington to Israel is like a wellspring that never runs dry.

US ‘Joke’ Intel Belies Knowledge of Real Culprits in Downed Jet

From smoking gun to silver bullet, but in the wrong direction – Washington.

Seriously, is that it? US national intelligence presented its «evidence» this week on the shoot-down of the Malaysian airliner over Ukraine. Anyone waiting to see a «smoking gun» implicating Russia and pro-Russian militia in eastern Ukraine in the disaster should have been left underwhelmed by the supposed American «killer evidence». Less smoking gun and more like one of those circus pistols that pop out a joke flag emblazoned with the word «Bang!»

Russian army information shows that a Kiev-controlled SU-25 fighter jet was tailing the airliner just before it disappeared from the radar, and that following the crash another unidentified military aircraft was recorded as circling the crash site, strongly indicating that it was surveilling the aftermath.

A Simple Solution to the Israeli/Palestinian Problem

The Israeli/Palestinian problem can be easily solved because the solution is very simple.

Unless Israel wants to become an internationally recognized Apartheid state shunned by the whole world, a just and equitable solution needs to be worked out. A solution that shelves the idea of two countries living side by side because the facts on the ground dictate otherwise. Israelis are living all over the territory that was earmarked for a Palestinian state. And since the Israelis don’t want to give up one inch of that territory, the only solution left is One Country.

But we have a twist.

It would be a federation of 5 states: Israel, West Bank, Gaza, Galilee and Negev with Jerusalem as the country’s Capital and Palestine as its name – a name that’s been around since the time of Christ if not as far back as the time of the Philistines. The Golan Heights would be returned to Syria in exchange for a comprehensive peace with not only Syria but Lebanon.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel will not go along with that. They want one country and for it to be the Jewish state. All others not welcome.

ISIS gains highlight ‘aggressive’ use of water as weapon of war

Militants from ISIS now control or threaten key facilities on the Euphrates and Tigris rivers, generating fears that the Al-Qaeda splinter group could turn off the taps to the Shiite south of Iraq, sparking a massive humanitarian crisis.Last month’s ISIS-led offensive across Iraq saw it overrun cities and battle for oil refineries as the national army melted away, but it has also been waging a war for water, trying to wrest control over rivers, dams and desalination plants in a bid to solidify its territorial gains.

Control of water is seen as key to the viability of the fledgling caliphate declared by ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Without water, seasonal droughts cannot be managed, electricity cannot be generated, proper sanitation practices are near impossible and the local economy grinds to a virtual halt.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Sunni rebels have been very savvy in terms their strategy of controlling both the oil and the water of the region.

And the US government appears clueless as to how to respond. When Baghdad falls (which it may well do), the US government will have lost Iraq twice, militarily, and once, economically, because with the fall of Baghdad, the US government will have no say as to who gets Iraq's oil, and in what international currency it will be sold.

The violence didn’t begin with the three abducted Israeli settlers

Although the media is largely portraying Israel’s actions as defensive,violence in the region did not begin with the kidnapping and murder of the three Israel settlers on June 12, 2014.
In fact, Israel has been kidnapping and murdering Palestinian adults and youth on a regular basis for decades (read about how the conflict was started ), yet this is rarely covered in U.S. news.

As the death toll in Gaza continues to rise, we hope you are continuing to contact your Congress people and Senators, asking them to demand that Israel stop its slaughter in Gaza.

We’ve created a powerful infographic you can share with your friends and family that demonstrates two crucial facts:

1) That the violence in the region began BEFORE three Israelis were abducted on killed on June 12, and

2) That Israel has been killing a shockingly disproportionate number of civilians with its bombs in comparison to Hamas’ rockets, both in the current assault and over the last decade.

A chessboard drenched in blood

The MH17 tragedy may have been a horrendous mistake. But it may also have been a desperate gambit by the Kiev minions of the Empire of Chaos. By now, Russian intel may have already mastered the key facts. Washington’s predictable modus operandi was to shoot from the hip, igniting and in theory winning the spin war, and doubling down by releasing the proverbial army of “top officials” brimming with social media evidence. Moscow will take time to build a meticulous case, and only then lay it out in detail.

The Big Picture spells out the Empire of Chaos elites as extremely uneasy. Take Dr Zbigniew “The Grand Chessboard” Brzezinski, who as a former foreign policy mentor has the ears of the increasingly dejected White House paperboy. Dr Zbig was on CNN this Sunday challenging Europe’s leaders to “stand up to Putin”. He wonders if “Europe wants to become a satellite” and worries about “a moment of decisive significance for the future of the system – of the world system”.

If that is all Washington continues to show us, we will know where the blame resides.

Why is Israel afraid of Gaza’s Ark?

On July 11th, 2am local time, Israeli warships fired on the Palestinian/International boat, Gaza’s Ark, which burst into flames and was completely destroyed. We had been working on this project for over two years, buying on old fishing boat, the largest one we could find in Gaza, and converting it into a cargo vessel. It was due to sail out of Gaza in September, carrying goods from the occupied West Bank and Gaza to trade with the outside world, in an attempt to break the illegal blockade of the Gaza Strip.

Building this boat continued the movement to sail boats to and from Gaza and was also part of the much larger movement of nonviolent resistance to the Israeli Occupation of Palestine.

So the question posed is, why was Israel so afraid of our little boat, carrying Palestinian embroidery and boxes of dates, a boat that posed no threat whatsoever to Israeli security? Why did the Israeli Occupation Forces feel it was necessary to destroy it?

What are You Trying to Hide, Mr Obama?

So far, Putin’s appeal for safe passage for investigators has been wilfully ignored by the Kiev regime, which has if anything stepped up its violence in the region since the air crash. And Western leaders are giving full cover to the Kiev regime by perversely laying the blame on Russia and the self-defense militias in Donetsk, accusing both of obstructing recovery and a crash probe.

To paraphrase Obama: «What is the Kiev regime and its Western sponsors trying to hide?»

Significantly, the Malaysian premier did not make the arrangements through the Kiev regime. He dealt directly with the Donetsk People’s Republic leader Alexander Borodai. The Malaysians disclosed publicly that 282 of the bodies recovered so far were to be transported in refrigerated train carriages to Donetsk and thence to the city of Kharkiv before being flown on to Amsterdam. The flight recorder black boxes were also to be handed over in Donetsk by militia members to an official Malaysian investigative team…

One officer, a veteran of Gaza operations, who left the fighting area for a few hours, told Haaretz: “I’ve been to Shujaiyeh before, but I’ve never seen it – or Hamas – like this before. Their equipment and tactics are just like Hezbollah. Missile traps and IEDs everywhere – and they stay and fight instead of melting away like in the past.”

They stay and fight because, unlike Israel, Palestinians in Gaza have no choice, no alternative, no option to go back to a slow death under a crippling siege.

It’s time. Long past time. The best strategy to end the increasingly bloody occupation is for Israel to become the target of the kind of global movement that put an end to apartheid in South Africa

Every day that Israel pounds Gaza brings more converts to the BDS cause – even among Israeli Jews. In the midst of the assault roughly 500 Israelis, dozens of them well-known artists and scholars, sent a letter to foreign ambassadors in Israel. It calls for “the adoption of immediate restrictive measures and sanctions” and draws a clear parallel with the anti-apartheid struggle. “The boycott on South Africa was effective, but Israel is handled with kid gloves … This international backing must stop.”

“By allowing arms exports to Israel to flourish, the UK government is providing material and political support for Israel’s violent oppression and collective punishment of Palestinians, including the current massacre in Gaza.”

“UK companies that export arms to Israel such as BAE Systems and Boeing are profiting directly from Israel’s on-going attacks on Palestinian civilians on Gaza,” the group member said.

“Rather than seeking to whitewash Israeli atrocities,” the campaigner added,”the UK government should listen to the appeals made by Palestinian civil society groups and Amnesty International and impose a military embargo on Israel. How many more people in Gaza have to die before the government will stop arming Israel?”

Downed Airliner: Fake Audio Tape Shows US-Backed Hit to Frame Russia

Within hours of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 crashing into a wheat field in the Donetsk region of eastern Ukraine last Thursday, Western governments and media have gradually stoked a frenzy of accusations that Moscow had a hand in the disaster.

In a devastating twist to emerge over the weekend it now seems that the Malaysian civilian airliner downed over Ukraine was most probably brought down as a result of sabotage by the US-backed Kiev regime.

The purpose of this audacious act of mass murder – in which 298 lives were lost – was carried out with the intention of framing the Russian government. Washington, the chief sponsor of the Kiev regime, must have known about the plot, if not being fully complicit in it.

Letter of Norwegian doctor in Gaza

The last night was extreme. The “ground invasion” of Gaza resulted in scores and carloads with maimed, torn apart, bleeding, shivering, dying – all sorts of injured Palestinians, all ages, all civilians, all innocent.

The heroes in the ambulances and in all of Gaza’s hospitals are working 12-24 hour shifts, grey from fatigue and inhuman workloads (without payment all in Shifa for the last 4 months), they care, triage, try to understand the incomprehensible chaos of bodies, sizes, limbs, walking, not walking, breathing, not breathing, bleeding, not bleeding humans. HUMANS!

Document released by Wikileaks proves Israeli Government lied to justify Operation Cast Lead against Gaza in 2008

Back at the end of 2008 when the Israeli government launched its war against Hamas-controlled Gaza, it insisted that it had no choice: Hamas had not maintained the cease-fire with Israel and the IDF had no choice but to respond. But a WikiLeak cable released indicates the cease-fire was working well, perhaps too well from the point of view of Israel’s Defense Minister Ehud Barak.

Israeli Massacre in Gaza City kills at least 66

“The Israeli Dream”: The Criminal Roadmap Towards “Greater Israel”?

The concept of a “Greater Israel” according to the founding father of Zionism Theodore Herzl, is a Jewish State stretching “’From the Brook of Egypt to the Euphrates.’

Rabbi Fischmann, of the Jewish Agency for Palestine, stated to the UN Special Committee on 9th July 1947 that:

The Promised Land extends from the River of Egypt up to the Euphrates, it includes parts of Syria and Lebanon’”, wrote Michel Chossudovsky. (1)

Thus “from the Nile to the Euphrates.” Herzl’s detailed thesis was written in 1904.

Israelis gather on hillsides to watch and cheer as military drops bombs on Gaza

As the sun begins to sink over the Mediterranean, groups of Israelis gather each evening on hilltops close to the Gaza border to cheer, whoop and whistle as bombs rain down on people in a warzone hell a few miles away.

Old sofas, garden chairs, battered car seats and upturned crates provide seating for the spectators. On one hilltop, a swing has been attached to the branches of a pine tree, allowing its occupant to sway gently in the breeze. Some bring bottles of beer or soft drinks and snacks.

On Saturday, a group of men huddle around a shisha pipe. Nearly all hold up smartphones to record the explosions or to pose grinning, perhaps with thumbs up, for selfies against a backdrop of black smoke.

Despite reports that millions of Israelis are living in terror of Hamas rockets, they don't deter these hilltop war watchers whose proximity to Gaza puts them within range of the most rudimentary missiles. Some bring their children

America must soon shift our role from giving tacit consent to an invasion to becoming an active partner in a new, honest search for peace in the Middle East.

Will Russia shoot down West’s lies?

One gets the feeling that Russia has the aim and ability to shoot down these Western lies, and to show up Western politicians and media for what they are: a criminal enterprise of lies and war-making.

They don’t call it the “gutter press” for nothing. But Western so-called news media sunk to new toxic depths over the weekend in their coverage of the Malaysian airliner downed over Ukraine – and the death of all 298 people on board.

The trouble is that this time the Western propaganda machine is up against Russia and its own very capable intelligence.

Russia is not only calmly challenging the West to present its so-called “intelligence evidence.” Moscow is now also saying that it has its own incriminating information as to what really happened to the doomed Malaysian flight.

BRICS establish $100bn bank and currency reserves

Each BRICS member is expected to put an equal share into establishing the startup capital of $50 billion with a goal to reach $100 billion.

Each country will send either their finance minister or Central Bank chair to the bank’s representative board.

The group of emerging economies signed the long-anticipated document to create the $100 bn BRICS Development Bank and a reserve currency pool worth over another $100 bn. Both will counter the influence of Western-based lending institutions and the dollar.

Paris — Pro-Palestinian protesters clashed with police in Paris on Saturday as they defied a ban on a planned rally against violence in the Gaza strip.

A Reuters photographer said demonstrators in northern Paris launched projectiles at riot police, who responded by firing teargas canisters and stun grenades.

Demonstrators also climbed on top of a building and burned an Israeli flag. At least one car was set on fire.

A police spokesman said that 38 demonstrators had been arrested by early evening and that the clashes were dying down.

Video: Outraged constituents confront CT Senator Chris Murphy over support for Gaza attack

Commentary from Mondoweiss:
When Senator Chris Murphy invited his Connecticut constituents to a hike up East Rock Park this morning, he did not expect to be met by activists from the Middle East Crisis Committee and Jewish Voice for Peace. The activists had gathered to express outrage at Murphy’s support for Israel’s ongoing massacre of over 300 Gazans. Captured on video, Senator Murphy denied knowledge of the Senate’s recent Resolution 498–a greenlight for Israel’s war–despite the fact that Murphy himself co-sponsored it.

“I was staggered to hear Murphy deny support for a bill that he co-sponosred,” said Stan Heller of the Middle East Crisis Committee.

Israel: America’s Frankenstein monster

......From the American perspective Israel looks something like Frankenstein’s monster, a morally dubious and arguably unnatural creation that was stitched together with the noblest of intentions but not much foresight, and that produced a painful litany of unintended consequences. In that analogy we are Victor Frankenstein, who can never unmake his wayward creature, control it or untether himself from it. If I remember the story correctly, they destroy each other in the end.

Gaza is a concentration camp, and it’s an American delusion not to recognize that — Weschler

Lawrence Weschler, a writer of considerable mainstream prestige, is sick of prevaricating about Israel. It’s rabid. It has rabies. And Gaza is a concentration camp. Weschler has let loose chiefly because of the “remorseless” and “repetitively compulsive” aspect of Israeli violence. I believe that understanding is now widely shared in the liberal mainstream, and interventions like Weschler’s make it easier for others to speak up. From Truthdig:

I know, I know, and I am bone tired of being told it, when it comes to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, there is plenty of blame to go around, but by this point after coming on almost 50 years of Israeli stemwinding and procrastinatory obfuscation, I’d put the proportionate distribution of blame at about the same level as the mortality figures—which is, where are we today (what with Wednesday morning’s four children killed while out playing on a Gaza beach)? What, 280 to 2?

Harper's one-sided approach to Gaza is a betrayal of Canadian values

US Aims at Blowing EU-Russia Rift with Downed Airliner

When assessing culpability, it is not only significant to ask the criminologist’s question: who benefits? It is also significant to observe how the political and media reaction to events quickly takes on an unmistakably scripted pre-ordained formula. In this case, there is more than a pungent whiff of premeditated action-reaction dialectic going on.

American geopolitical interests are best served by this atrocity, by shocking a laggardly Europe into adopting its aggressive sanctions towards Russia, even though that militates against European economic concerns. Shooting down a civilian airliner would ensure blowing a decisive rift between Europe and Russia.

Glenn Greenwald: I’ve gotten to understand a lot more about how these large media outlets function. I’ve worked with some of them over the last year in the reporting I’ve done. And it really is remarkable, and not hyperbole, that there is nothing that makes major media figures and news executives more petrified than reporting on Israel. I mean, the way in which they become so frightened to do any sort of reporting that could make what they call Israel’s supporters inside the United States angry really can’t be overstated.

The police arrested Abu Khdeir’s uncle and cousins without charges.

The Israeli motive appears to have been revenge for the family’s role in publicizing CCTV footage of Abu Khdeir’s brutal beating at the hands of Israeli police, and their public campaign to secure his return to the US.

Gaza, The Miracle

The small Palestinian strip lays on the eastern coast of Mediterranean sea tells us a real miracle. In the most densely populated region in the world, the people still resist the last substitutive colonialism in the world. Besieged people reject tyranny alone. Some people, surely, think this is romantic literature, but this is, indeed real and true.
An eight-years-old siege failed to tolerate Palestinians in Gaza. Nearer and farther governments failed them, on the contrary, the Egyptian Arab government assists Israeli Zionist regime to block ground terminals and they, together, apply collective punishment under the pretext of fighting Hamas.

We don't need to read about miracles as long as we know Gaza, the Miracle. A 1.8 million people left alone to face the sixth strongest army in the world, and they not only defending themselves, but they also defending their whole nation.

Rejecting victimhood: the case for Palestinian resistance

I wonder whether, when the settler-colonial army of Israel is pounding Gaza, Palestinians should grab guitars, pianos, and white ribbons, look up at their oppressors flying over their heads in apaches and F16s, and sing a lullaby of peace. Perhaps, then, we can impress Middle East “experts” and “non-violent resistance” -mind you, I am using the V word- butterflies. I wonder, moreover, what authority, defined by what experience, entitles these experts and butterflies to ask us, the Palestinians, to put down our arms. Nonsense.

Israel cuts diplomatic presence in Turkey amid protests

ISTANBUL/JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel said on Friday it was reducing its diplomatic presence in Turkey after protesters angered by its ground offensive into Gaza pelted its consulate in Istanbul with stones and draped Palestinian flags on the ambassador's residence in Ankara.

The Israeli foreign ministry accused Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan of "incitement", saying it was ordering the return of diplomats' families and trimming staffing to a minimum.

Erdogan accused the Jewish state on Wednesday of terrorizing the region and likened an Israeli MP and member of the governing coalition to Hitler. On Friday he maintained the attacks, saying there would be no improvement in relations whilst he or his administration remained in charge.

The Human Price of Neocon Havoc

Whether the tragedy is four boys getting blown apart while playing on a beach in Gaza or nearly 300 killed from a suspected missile strike on a Malaysian Airliner over Ukraine or the thousands upon thousands of other innocent victims slaughtered in Iraq, Syria, Libya and other recent war zones, the underlying lesson is that the havoc encouraged by America’s neocons results in horrendous loss of human life.

The overriding lesson from these tragedies should be that the real villains are people who opt for chaos and war over progress and peace. And, in the case of the Middle East and Ukraine, the greatest purveyors of this unnecessary warfare are America’s neocons.

14 Reasons Obama Is Lying When He Claims The World Is ‘More Stable’ And ‘Less Violent’ Than Ever

With a straight face, Barack Obama has been repeatedly telling us that the world is "more stable" and "less violent" than ever. In fact, he believes that this is the best time in history to be alive because of how peaceful and stable everything is. And of course Obama is more than happy to take credit for his role in bringing all of this "stability" about. Just this week, his press secretary told the media that this administration has "substantially improved" the "tranquility of the global community". Apparently these guys don't think that we will notice all of the violence, war and terrorism constantly raging all around us. It would be wonderful if the planet actually was becoming a more peaceful place, but instead the exact opposite is happening. The world is becoming increasingly unstable, and if we aren't really careful we could see World War III break out before too long. But if you listen to Obama, he makes it sound like we are living in an emerging global utopia.

Christopher Bollyn - "How Disinformation is used to Suppress 9-11 Truth"

The 9-11 Truth movement has been the target of disinformation from the very beginning. This, of course, should be expected because the highest-level Zionist culprits behind the false-flag terrorism of 9-11 also control our government and media. Their evil agenda of war and conquest can only succeed by suppressing public awareness of what really happened on 9-11. The perpetrators of 9-11 are behind the disinformation campaign, which is meant to undermine the 9-11 Truth movement. It is, therefore, essential that we understand how they use disinformation to confuse and weaken the integrity of the truth movement. . .

. . . The fact that Donald Fox works for a Canadian financial company, which happens to be the largest partner in Tamir Fishman, an Israeli financial firm where Ehud Barak is a senior partner and adviser, suggests that his disinformation work against 9-11 Truth is connected to his employment at RBC Capital Markets. That would make sense.

Gaza faces water crisis amid Israeli strikes: Red Cross

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has warned that hundreds of thousands of people in Gaza are without water as a result of Israel’s repeated airstrikes on the enclave.

The ICRC said on Wednesday that Gaza’s already vulnerable water system is being destroyed after days of deadly airstrikes by Israel.

“Hundreds of thousands of people in Gaza are now without water. Within days, the entire population of the Strip may be desperately short of water,” Jacques de Maio, the head of the ICRC delegation in the Palestinian occupied territories said.

“If they do not stop, the question is not if, but when an already beleaguered population will face an acute water crisis,” he added.

ICRC water and sanitation expert Guillaume Pierrehumbert also warned that the coastal enclave’s water system had been deteriorating for years, saying “the latest attacks are the last straw.”

The water crisis comes as temperatures are on the rise in Gaza.

18 KILLED IN SYRIA FROM AN ISRAELI AIRSTRIKE

QUNEITRA, Syria –At least 18 people have been killed in an Israeli air attack in Syria's Quneitra province.

Assad al-Jolani, a representative of a Syrian opposition media center in Golan and Quneitra, told Anadolu Agency on Tuesday that an Israeli warplane bombed a governor's building and military stations leaving 18 people dead, including eight civilians and 10 Assad-regime soldiers.

Several people were also wounded.

The Syrian regime did not resist the Israeli bomb raid and attacked opposition controlled areas with missiles, Jolani said.

Egypt had earlier proposed a ceasefire between Gaza-based resistance factions and Israel should have come into effect at 6 a.m. GMT on Tuesday.

Israel's security cabinet had earlier accepted the proposal, while deputy Hamas leader Moussa Abu Marzouq said his group was still considering the initiative after having initially rejected it.

Palestine, Oh Palestine!

So Israel, in Western eyes, was merely a cat’s paw for imperialism. Of course, it helped to have this project marketed within the invisibility of biblical writings even when most of its founders were staunchly atheist. Even today, most so-called Jewish people are non-religious. This Zionist project for occupation continued with the Nakba of 1948, the 1967 war, the 1973 war and a series of interventions since. Within the last five years there have been three separate and distinct large-scale slaughters of the Palestinians by the marauding Zionist regime.

Washington’s War Crimes Spread From Africa and the Middle East to Ukraine

A person might think that revulsion in “the world community” against Washington’s wanton slaughter of civilians in eight countries would have led to War Crimes Tribunal warrants issued for the arrest of presidents Clinton, Bush, Obama and many officials in their regimes. But the vocal part of “the world community”–the West–has become inured to Washington’s crimes against humanity and doesn’t bother to protest. Indeed, many of these governments are complicit in Washington’s crimes, and there could just as well be arrest warrants for members of European governments.

U.S. warns against Israeli ground invasion of Gaza, citing civilian risk

The United States on Monday warned against any Israeli ground invasion of Gaza, saying it would put even more civilians at risk than are currently in the crossfire of attacks on Hamas.

But the White House stopped short of criticizing Israel over the civilian toll so far in Gaza of the offensive, saying the government had a “right” and “responsibility” to defend their citizens against rocket attacks.

“Nobody wants to see a ground invasion because that would put more civilians at risk,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said during his daily press briefing.

The comments apparently reflect growing US concern over a possible escalation of the conflict, which Washington has offered to use its regional leverage to mediate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"....Regional leverage..."?!?!?

YOU HAVE GOT TO BE FLIPPING KIDDING ME.

Iraq, Libya, and Afghanistan are melting into a maelstrom of instability, and the US government has managed to scotch any real possibility of achieving a deal with Iran on its nuclear energy program.

IF those results are considered "leverage" in the region, please tell me: what does epic fail look like?!?

And were I a betting woman, I would bet that Israel will go ahead with a ground invasion just at a time when the world is otherwise distracted; let's say, dealing with a head-on military collision between Russia and Ukraine.

Vladimir Putin Interview with Russian news agency ITAR-TASS on the eve of BRICS summit in Brazil

The forthcoming summit’s theme is Inclusive Growth: Sustainable Solutions. Therefore, we will consider the most urgent issues in global politics and the economy, as well as the BRICS (Brazil, Russia,India,China,South Africa) development.

How can this be achieved in practice?

First of all, to develop cooperation in the UN in every possible way, persistently counteract individual states’ attempts to impose on the international community the policy of displacing unwanted regimes and promoting unilateral solutions to crisis situations. We propose to create a mechanism of regular high?level consultations between our foreign ministries on different regional conflicts to agree, where possible, on common positions and joint efforts to ensure their political and diplomatic settlement.

Egypt's Junta is giving Israel a hand

Egypt's junta proposed truce between Palestinian resistance and Israel. The proposed truce completely adopting Israeli conditions. Israel's condition is long-term "quiet-for-quiet" with preserving the siege over Gaza. Meanwhile, Palestinian factions are conditioning to end the siege over Gaza Strip and to stop settlers' assaults in the West Bank and Jerusalem, and to release the recently arrested Palestinian prisoners.

The Egyptian proposed truce is, in fact, an original copy of the Israeli conditions and it includes a major condition with details; cessation of hostilities in-between in specified time presumed by Egypt's junta, nevertheless, the proposed truce did not mention the Israeli comprehensive siege over Gaza. Israel ruined Gaza's airport and prevented port's rebuilding.

Check Mating Washington in its Own Backyard with BRICSIANSE

The United States and its closest allies have attempted to isolate Russia and President Vladimir Putin from the world stage. As a result of Western support for the Ukrainian regime that came to power through violence in Kiev, actions taken by Western powers against Russia have included expelling Russia from the G-8 of capitalist powers, the freezing of the assets of Russian government officials and Russian banks, and imposing travel bands on Russian citizens.

Russia and China appear determined that Ukraine and Georgia will be the «line in the sand» for any further encroachments by George Soros- and CIA-led «R2P» revolutions in the Eurasian space. It is also clear that Putin outsmarted Obama in his own backyard.

What if Hamas dumped all their rockets in the sea tomorrow?

West Bank Palestinians DO NOT fire rockets, yet there is no sign of an end to their misery and oppression.

The slaughter of innocents is necessary to stop Gaza rocket-fire. That’s what Israel says. “This isn’t about rockets from Gaza,” says Unite.

Unite the Union “calls on the UK government to demand the Israeli government halt its military action and to make it clear that should it fail to do so then a move for international sanctions will be launched within the United Nations Security Council and the European Union.”

On Israeli Defeat and the Future of Jewish Politics

Alimuddin Usmani: After “Cast lead” in 2009 and “Pillar of Defense” in 2012, the Israeli army has launched operation “Protective Edge” in July 2014 against Gaza. What is the purpose of these repeated large scale military operations?

Gilad Atzmon: It is important to note that Israel hasn’t won a single military battle since 1973. True, it has killed many Arabs, but it hasn’t managed to achieve any of its military objectives.

Jul 14 21:05

What if Hamas dumped all their rockets in the sea tomorrow?

“There will be no peace and no justice unless the root causes of the conflict are addressed. The roots of the conflict lie in Israel’s decades-long illegal occupation of the West Bank, the building of illegal settlements in the occupied territories, the forced take-over of Palestinian homes in East Jerusalem, and the effective establishment of an apartheid system that systematically removes the most basic human rights of Palestinians.”

Islamic State leader al-Baghdadi formerly a U.S. captive

The U.S. held him captive for a time in 2004 before an unconditional release put him back into Iraq’s growing Sunni insurgency. A year later, the Multi-National Force-Iraq labeled him a kidnapper and murderer. It boasted of probably killing him in an airstrike, only to find out it hadn’t.

The Unfolding of Yinon’s “Zionist Plan for the Middle East”: The Crisis in Iraq and the Centrality of the National Interest of Israel

As I brought out in The Transparent Cabal, ignored by the more respectable antiwar crowd as well as the mainstream, a fundamental purpose of the war on Iraq was to ignite the destabilization and fragmentation of Israel’s enemies throughout the Middle East, which has consequently taken place in tandem with a region-wide Sunni—Shiite war.

Moreover, I pointed out that this idea was best articulated, though did not originate, in a lengthy article in Hebrew by Likudnik Oded Yinon in 1982, which Israel Shahak, the perspicacious Israeli dissident,[2] translated in a booklet titled “The Zionist Plan for the Middle East.”[3]

And as the title of Shahak’s booklet clearly indicated, the fragmentation of Israel’s enemies was a goal of the Israeli right (and to some extent transcended the political right), and was not just some quirk of Yinon’s. Intertwined with this strategy was an effort to keep Israel’s larger enemies fighting among themselves.

Arab League urges immediate end to Israeli aggression on Gaza

Despite international calls for an end to Israel’s bombardment of Gaza, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that the Tel Aviv regime was hitting Gaza “with growing force” and that there was no end in sight.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This attack is a PR disaster for Israel.

But this attack is only going to backflash on the US! Remember that the Petro-dollar deal put into place to prop up the US dollar following Nixon's ending of gold convertibility was for the Middle East oil nations to sell their oil only for US dollars in exchange for which the US would hold Israel's aggressions in check. This latest attack by Israel and their obvious attempt to spread the conflict into Lebanon, Syria, and Iran will send a message to those oil nations still using the dollar that the United States cannot keep its end of the Petro-dollar deal! That will accelerate the trend of nations dropping the dollar in favor of the Yuan and Ruble!

Both Canada's gutless "opposition" parties reluctant to take on Harper's one-sided, pro-Israel stance on Gaza crisis

Canada’s two opposition parties have been more circumspect, but neither was eager to take on Ottawa’s official position and that may mark a sea change in the country’s Middle East position which is less and less a Conservative position and increasingly an all-party consensus.

Both Liberal foreign affairs critic Marc Garneau and his NDP counterpart Paul Dewar preached restraint, de-escalation and protection of civilians.

One Liberal MP who is in Tel Aviv, Newfoundland’s Gerry Byrne, watched Israel’s Iron Dome repel an attack, then took to social media to praise the courage of individual Israelis in the face of terrorism.

Kurdish leader in Turkey to push for independence from Iraq

The president of Iraq’s autonomous Kurdish region will meet Turkish leaders on Monday as Ankara keeps a close eye on moves for an independent Iraqi Kurdistan amid the chaos in its conflict-torn neighbour.

Massud Barzani is due to meet President Abdullah Gul and Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan in the capital Ankara in separate meetings from 1100 GMT.

The visit comes as lightening gains by the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS) — formerly known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) — in Iraq have alarmed countries in the region and sparked calls for Kurdish autonomy to counter the radical Islamist threat.

In an interview this month, Barzani said Iraq’s Kurds would hold an independence referendum within months, adding that the time was right for a vote as Iraq was already effectively divided by IS’s actions in Iraq.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Barzani's timing here is a shrewd move.

An independent Kurdistan would solidify it's hold over its oil revenue,and remove the shakles of a compltely, pathologically disfunctional government in Baghdad.

It's Peshmerga fighters have the capabilities and discipline to hold off the ISIS/ISIL militants, and the Kurd's cultural cohesion - and history - make this an opportunity worth seizing for the Kurdish people.

The rest of Iraq may already be lost; its military cannot hold against the invaders, and the US government doesn't want to go back in militarily in an election year. Unfortunately for the US government, when Baghdad falls (and this appears to be only a matter of time), the US will have lost Iraq twice militarily, and once, completely economically, because it will have no say in to whom Iraq's oil will be sold, or in what national currency.

Save Gaza Today; Tomorrow May Be Too Late!

As Israel is set for a ground invasion of Gaza, the alarming call of a Holy War is heard from an Israeli commander who tells his soldiers that they are engaged in a war to “wipe out” an “enemy who defames” God. Jewish extremism has always been concealed, and with it, the dangers. But the threat is very real – and very well understood even by those supporting this growing danger.

World leaders have warned that the conflict could engulf the entire region, but Israel is not heeding their warnings. Perhaps Netanyahu is smug in the knowledge that even if all in the region (and beyond) perish, Israeli Jews, or at least some, will be safe in its Site 911.Site 911, funded by America, due for completion soon.

With the growing extremism in Israeli military, their “holy wars” and nukes, it is not just Gaza that is burning – this is a war on humanity and perhaps even human race. If we do not stop it today, tomorrow may be too late.

“Justified Vengeance”, The Pretext for Bombing Gaza: Was the Netanyahu Government behind the Killings of the Three Israeli Teenagers?

Ironically, the same jihadist group which is reported to have kidnapped and killed the three teenagers is supported by Israel’s IDF out of the occupied Golan Heights.

A mere coincidence.

Florida Congresswoman sides with Israeli police over her own brutalized teenage constituent

Tarek Abu Khdeir, a 15-year-old Palestinian-American high school student from Tampa, was brutally beaten in a videotaped July 3 incident in occupied East Jerusalem by Israeli border police. After being thrown in prison, he is now held under house arrest without charges, unable to receive adequate medical care for the extensive injuries he sustained during the beating. (Video of the alleged beating at the bottom of this article)

Abu Khdeir’s family has beseeched their congressional representative, Castor, to publicly call for his release and immediate return to the United States. Though her staff has met repeatedly with the family, she has said and done nothing of substance to assist them.

McCain admires ‘Israeli’s restraint’ in killing Palestinians

US hawkish senator John McCain (R-Arizona) says Israel is demonstrating “restraint” in its continuing airstrikes on the Gaza Strip that have killed over 170 people, adding such “restraint” is “admirable.”

According to the latest reports, the death toll from Israel’s attacks on the besieged Gaza Strip has risen to 175. Over 1,230 Palestinians have also been injured since the Tel Aviv regime began its deadly airstrikes on Gaza on Tuesday.

Reports also show Palestinian families are fleeing their homes in northern Gaza. According to the Gaza-based Palestinian Centre for Human Rights, more than three quarters of the victims are civilians.

Meanwhile, Palestinian fighters have launched more rockets into Israel in retaliation for the bombardment of Gaza.

In an interview with CNN’s ‘State of the Union’ on Sunday, McCain said the situation has become “more dangerous than any time in the past” as he blamed Palestinians for Israel’s atrocities against them.

An Open Letter to Wall Street Journal from a Palestinian Woman

The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee’s Media Relations Specialist Amani Al-Khatahtbeh responds to Bret Stephens’ racist column “Where are the Palestinian Women?” in the Wall Street Journal last week. Stephens makes the assertion that all Palestinian mothers want to raise their sons to be martyrs. In a condescending comparison to Israeli society, he goes on to say that he has “yet to meet the Israeli mother who wants to raise her boys to become kidnappers and murderers.”

Al-Khatahtbeh responds, “Actually, every Israeli mother is legally obligated by the Israeli government to enter her sons and daughters into an institution that systematically kidnaps and murders. It’s [called] the Israeli Defense Force.”

“The Unfolding of Yinon’s ‘Zionist Plan for the Middle East’: The Crisis in Iraq and the Centrality of the National Interest of Israel,” illustrates how the ethno-sectarian fragmentation and internecine warfare between Shiites and Sunnis is in line with the Yinon plan to enhance Israel’s security and was ignited by the neocon-inspired US invasion of Iraq in 2003.

Netanyahu and the neocons currently view Iran as a greater threat in the Middle East than ISIS, and while they advocate US military intervention,they emphasize that such intervention should not empower Iran, notes Stephen Sniegoski.

Exclusive: Interview with Bashar al-Jaafari

Excerpts from the Exclusive PRESS TV interview with Bashar al-Jaafari, Syria's ambassador to the United Nations:

There is an awakening in the west he said, but a very shy awakening and people are aware that there is something wrong in the calculations of the American Administration...

You (President Obama) cannot on the one hand pledge Five hundred million dollars to help the so-called "moderate" Syrian opposition and on the other hand two days later state that the coalition is not a reliable political force. This contradiction speaks for itself he stressed.

There is no armed moderate opposition in Syria. Arming terrorists in Syria, is like arming terrorists in Libya, or arming terrorists in Iraq.
