18 Israeli Fighter Jets Landed in Saudi Arabia to Prevent Coup

Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz announced on Wednesday his decision to replace Crown Prince Mohammed bin Nayef bin Abdulaziz with his own son, Mohammed bin Salman.

After the decision was announced, the Israeli air force sent 18 of its fighter jets, including F16I, F15CD and F16CD, along with two Gulfstream aircraft, two tanker airplanes and two C130 planes, special for electronic warfare, to Saudi Arabia at the demand of the new crown prince bin Salman to block his cousin (bin Nayef)’s possible measures.

Thousands in Jerusalem protest abduction of Yemenite babies following disclosure some were experimented on

Over 2,000 Israeli Yemenite Jews and supporting activists gathered in Jerusalem last Wednesday to mark an annual day of awareness for what families say was a state-sponsored program to abduct Yemenite Jewish infants and other Israeli children born to parents who were recent immigrants from Arab countries.

Known as the Yemenite Children Affair, in the first decade after the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948, there was a systematic kidnapping of newborn Yemenite children, carried out by Israeli hospitals and government institutions. Mothers, who often were in Israel for a short time and did not speak Hebrew, would enter hospitals or other state facilities to give birth. Once the child was born medical staff told the parents the child died unexpectedly. Yet none of the families were shown bodies or burial documents. Many of the families did not practice any mourning ceremonies because they believed their missing children were still alive.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is officially horrendous; these families absolutely deserve answers, and to those who "experimented" on these children, believing that they were somehow "less than human"; Josef Mengele would have been proud!!

How could you?!?!?

Why is the EU funding Israeli torturers?

The European Union is illegally funding Israeli torturers and must stop, a group of prominent international legal experts has concluded.

They say that the LAW-TRAIN program violates EU regulations and international law because one of the participants, Israel’s public security ministry, “is responsible for or complicit in torture, other crimes against humanity and war crimes.”

Tillerson and Mattis Cleaning Up Kushner’s Middle East Mess

But the single most important reason for the Qatar tilt is obvious to anyone who knows how to read a map. The U.S. leases the al-Udeid Air Base, southwest of Doha, which is home to the Air Force’s 379th Air Expeditionary Wing. The U.S. (and the Qataris), not only mount fighter-bombers from al-Udeid against ISIS units in Iraq and Syria, the base serves as the first line of defense against Iranian encroachments in the region. Even more crucially, al-Udeid not only protects America’s Persian Gulf allies, it protects Israel – and would be a launching point for U.S. aircraft against Iran were Israel to be attacked by the Islamic Republic.

ISRAELI WARPLANES HIT MULTIPLE TARGETS IN GAZA STRIP

The Israeli army bombed several targets across the Gaza Strip overnight. Israeli attacks were recorded in at least three locations in Gaza, Palestinian security sources and witnesses said, with Hamas bases struck near the southern city of Rafah and Gaza City, as well as an empty area in the center of Gaza, Al Jazeera reported.

White House Appears to Be Planning Attack on Assad

Raising speculation that the US is about to attack Syria again, the White House has issued a statement late this evening accusing the Assad government in Syria of conducting “potential preparations for another chemical weapons attack,” claiming that such an attack would involve the “mass murder of civilians, including innocent children.”

The late night report was extremely light on details, but threatened to make Syria’s government and military “pay a heavy price,” suggesting that the statement was only issued to lay the groundwork for a new round of US attacks on Syrian government targets.

The US last attacked Syria in earnest in early April, firing 49 cruise missiles at a Syrian air base. The attack was carried out despite reports ultimately showing that the US intelligence community found no evidence a chemical weapon attack took place.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word please: that you could possibly believe, for one second, that Americans would swallow this codswallop whole, is a singularly nasty insult to the intelligence of your American brothers and sisters.

We were lied into wars against Afghanistan and Iraq; we will NOT, thank you very much, be lied into a war against Syria, over any kind of horrific false flag this government, and most probably Israel, may be conjuring against it right now.

I would very much like to politely remind you, and the American people, that just because an action would be the most pig-headedly, ham-fistedly stupid thing the American government could do, is utterly no guarantee that it won't do it.

War against Syria most probably means a war against Russia; and right now, Mr. President, the American military doesn't have the money; the weaponry; the troop strength; or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia.

Right now, you really need to be listening to those voices in your inner circle advocating against such a rash action; they are the voices of reason, and the voices for the good of We the People.

‘Israeli attacks on Syrian forces embolden terrorists to draw more fire’

The decision by Israel to respond militarily every time there is spillover from fighting between Syria pro-government forces and the terrorists cannot lead to anything good, John Bosnitch, political commentator, told RT.

Syrian army positions in the Golan Heights once again came under fire from Israel, reportedly resulting in the deaths of two Syrian soldiers.

It was the second time the Israel Defense Forces bombed Syrian government troops in the area in two days after munitions accidentally landed on the Israeli side of the border.

Israeli jets target multiple targets across Gaza Strip

Israeli fighter jets have carried out multiple airstrikes on various positions throughout the Gaza Strip.

According to reports, several of the early Tuesday raids targeted positions belonging to the Ezzedeen al-Qassam Brigades -- the military wing of Hamas -- located to the center and the west of the coastal sliver.

Tel Aviv regime’s fighter planes also engaged in strikes against positions in Khan Yunis and Rafah, located to the south of the Strip. Palestinian farming lands to the east of Gaza were also targeted by Israeli mortar fire.

Trump eager for big meeting with Putin; some advisers wary

Bomb Syria one more time and the Donald may get to meet Putin at his war crimes trial. After Spicers threats against Syria last night you have to wonder what Planet this guy lives on.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is eager to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin with full diplomatic bells and whistles when the two are in Germany for a multinational summit next month. But the idea is exposing deep divisions within the administration on the best way to approach Moscow in the midst of an ongoing investigation into Russian meddling in the U.S. elections.

Many administration officials believe the U.S. needs to maintain its distance from Russia at such a sensitive time — and interact only with great caution.

Hamas accuses Israel of fabricating rocket claim to justify airstrikes in Gaza

"Since the terror organization Hamas is the ruler of the Gaza Strip, it is responsible for any attempt to harm the State of Israel," the Israeli army said in a statement following the early morning aerial attack.

However, in a statement, the Hamas movement accused Israel of fabricating claims of rocket fire to justify the attack. "The Israeli claim of a rocket being fired from Gaza and issuing a statement on behalf of ISIS to justify the escalation and an attack of resistance positions are part of a dangerous and transparent Israeli game."

We Must Support Theatre 80 and Lorcan Otway!

Before the publication of my recent book, Being in Time, I visited the USA for a brief coast-to-coast tour. The literary/music expedition was met with significant opposition in New York City at Theatre 80. Theatre 80 is a great historical institution with a history of providing an intelligent platform for musicians including John Coltrane and Thelonius Monk, theatre, movies and speakers, including me.

We planned a night of open discussion on different issues to do with my new book, critiquing ID politics and the post political condition. We wanted a truly open dialogue and we personally invited each of my NYC and American detractors to share the podium. Apparently, not one had the courage to engage in a public dialogue with me. This is understandable I guess, I’ve bought myself a reputation of being outspoken on issues to do with Jewish power and controlled opposition.

Syria warns Israel of 'dangerous repercussions for aggressive action'

Syrian army issues statement following IDF response to Syrian missile spillover, calling Israeli actions motivated 'a desperate attempt to boost morale' and warning 'Israeli enemy' of consequences.

The Syrian army warned Israel on Sunday of the "dangerous repercussions" of its "aggressive activities" after the IDF retaliated against spillover fire in the Golan Heights for the second day in a row.

After the Syrian army forces managed to thwart the wide-scale attack of terrorist al-Nusra … the Israeli enemy continued today to attack one of our military stations, in a desperate attempt to support terrorist organizations and boost their low morale," read a statement from the army of Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let's look at a map of the Israeli/Syrian border:

Map: Israeli/Syrian Border

Now, let's take a look at the Map of Eretz Israel, or "Greater Israel", which many Zionists in the Israeli government want to bring to fruition:

Image: Eretz Israel, or greater Israel, stretching from the Tigris to the Euphrates Rivers

Notice that hunks of Syria; Lebanon; Egypt; Iraq, and Saudi Arabia, get gobbled up in this redrawing of borders in the Middle East?!?

In the military hot mess which characterises the wars in Syria, it is not impossible that Israel's civilian and military infrastructure saw their bombings in Syria as a calculated risk, to see how much of the country it could potentially "chew off", and declare its own, beyond the Golan Heights, before the dust settles.

And we see some confirmation of that possibility in the following article, posted on last Saturday, from the timesofisrael.com:

Liberman: The Assad Regime will Continue to Suffer the Consequences of their Attacks

I would like to hope that Russia's Putin and Lavrov are telling their Israeli counterparts, in no uncertain terms, that these bombings must stop, or else there will be consequences, courtesy of the Russian military.

I don't know how long Putin will put up with this kind of military nonsense from the IDF in Syria, but my hunch would be, not very long at all.

“Stop Special Treatment for Jews” – a suggested way forward

FROM THEIR VERY BEGINNINGS, JEWS HAVE PROJECTED THEMSELVES AS A SPECIAL PEOPLE. According to their holy literature, the Torah, they demanded this recognition from their god Jehovah and from surrounding tribes. Over time, this became enshrined in their tribal mythology which they jealously guarded: the Hebrews are God's special, covenanted people!

A nomadic people, they very possibly learned of the “One God” from the Egyptians, who were the first to develop the concept. Over time, their god Jehovah became the One God, but before that, he was competing and slaying to prove his supremacy over all other gods. His teaching to the tribe held that they deserved to take what they wanted from other tribes when directed by Him to attack and destroy. Their god Jehovah promised them victory as long as they strictly obeyed his commands.

Israel targets Syrian artillery positions & ammunitions truck in 2nd incident in 2 days

The IDF struck two artillery launchers and an ammunition truck on the Syrian side of the border after “several Syrian projectiles” landed in Israeli territory without causing any casualties. A similar incident occurred in the same Golan Heights region on Saturday.

“In response to several Syrian projectiles launched towards Israel, IDF targeted 2 Syrian regime artillery positions & an ammunitions truck,” the Israel Defense Forces tweeted on their official feed on Sunday afternoon.

The tweet came three hours after the IDF said Syrian projectiles had “hit an open area in the northern Golan Heights,” while noting that “no injuries were reported.”

Saudi Prince Reveals ‘US Conditions’ for Mohamed Bin Salman to be King

Saudi Prince Khalid Bin Farhan al-Saud, who lives in Germany, has revealed what he claims are the US conditions for helping Mohamed Bin Salman to become King of Saudi Arabia before his father’s death, thenewkhalij.org reported on Friday.

Writing on Twitter, Khalid said that he had received the information from an informed source within Saudi Arabia’s ruling family.

The alleged conditions include

“absolute obedience to the US and Israel and carrying out whatever they ask him to do.”

Three other conditions, claimed Khalid, are stated in return for helping Bin Salman take the throne before the death of his father:

“Working to settle all Gaza residents in north Sinai as an alternative homeland and Saudi Arabia along with the UAE will afford the needed funds; getting rid of Hamas and whoever supports it; and getting Sanafir Island from Egypt.”

Closing Bank Accounts: Israel’s New Policy to Displace Palestinians Out of Jerusalem

Israel is closing the bank accounts of Arab institutions in Jerusalem in an effort to displace Jerusalemites and force them out of the city, the Department of Jerusalem Affairs has said.

In a press release, the organisation said the Israeli occupation’s moves against social, cultural, educational, relief, housing, legal or engineering institutions were political and go hand in hand with the Israeli policy of collective punishment against the defenseless Palestinian civilians in order to Judaise the city by force.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was one of the first heads of government to go to the United States to meet Donald Trump on February 16, in Trump’s new role as President. After the event major media focused on the themes of Israeli settlements in the West Bank, the Iran nuclear deal or a Palestine two-state solution.

Virtually no mention was made by CNN or other US mainstream media of the most strategic point the two discussed. Netanyahu asked the US President to recognize the Israeli illegal occupation of Syria’s Golan Heights,1 something no US President has done since Israel openly declared it theirs in 1981.

Empty Book on Palestinian History Becomes Instant Best-seller on Amazon

The author's argument that the Palestinians are not a people because they are void of history isn't new - it's a mainstay of the Israeli right.

A book called "A History of the Palestinian People: From Ancient Times to the Modern Era" that went on sale on Amazon last week was the most sold book in the site's "Israel & Palestine History" category and the 543rd most sold book on the site.

The page for the book, which contains 132 blank pages, has since been removed from the site. It was not immediately clear if the page was removed by Amazon or the publisher.

Assaf Voll, the "author" of the book explained the motivations behind writing it to the religious radio station "Kol Hai": "The Palestinian people believe they are a people, and someone needs to tell them the truth even if it hurts. Look what happens when they were given the feeling that they are a real people."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Vol understands, in a very Orwellian manner, that to control the future, one must be in control of the past, which in his case, means to completely erase Palestinian history in what is now contemporary Israel.

Palestinian historians, past and future, will not allow him that "luxury" of this lie, however.

OpinionWhy Is One Pro-Israel Group Desperate To Keep You From Watching This Video?

When it comes to Palestinians, the American Jewish establishment is in the ignorance business. The average American synagogue has never hosted a Palestinian speaker. The average “pro-Israel” activist has never read a book by a Palestinian author. The American Jewish philanthropists who fund Birthright send thousands of young American Jews to Israel each year, on a program that systematically excludes the voices of 50% of the people who live under Israeli control.

But that’s not the worst part. The worst part is that for major American Jewish organizations, ignorance is an export. It is not enough that American Jewish leaders never hear from Palestinians themselves — they do their best to ensure that American politicians don’t, either.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please watch this video, and decide for yourselves.

There is one, carefully crafted image Israelis want you to see of their country; the other is the brutal reality with which Palestinians have to live every day, 24/7.

Hired gun: Is war with Iran now inevitable under new Saudi crown prince?

By most accounts, the young crown prince was, just three years earlier, an entirely obscure figure whose short period as defense minister was marred by several unfortunate setbacks, including billions of dollars lost in Yemen. Then there was the time he threw his weight behind an oil scheme that resulted in an oil price crash, which has left the Saudi economy decimated.

The new crown prince really does have an awful lot to prove. But that’s not a good thing.

Ruthlessly ambitious and an outsider, this makes him dangerous and unpredictable, yet for Donald Trump’s purposes the perfect partner to spearhead his ill-conceived campaign against Iran. Slowly, Trump’s pieces are falling into place in the Middle East, and it is no surprise that the first media in the region to praise Mohammed’s swift takeover of the cherished post was that of Israel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Iran will not "go gently into that good night" of regime change.

And there is something that President Trump doesn't seem to factor into his calculus, and that is the long-standing relationship between Iran and Russia.

Should Iran be attacked by Saudi Arabia and the US, I would almost guarantee you that Russia will come to Iran's aid militarily; and that...will be a game changer.

Israel vs. the United Nations: The Nikki Haley Doctrine

The United States Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, seems to be championing a single cause: Israel.

When Haley speaks about Israel, her language is not merely emotive nor tailored to fit the need of a specific occasion. Rather, her words are resolute, consistent and are matched by a clear plan of action.

Along with Haley, the rightwing Israeli government of Benjamin Netanyahu is moving fast to cultivate the unique opportunity of dismissing the United Nations, thus, any attempt at criticizing the Israeli Occupation.

Unlike previous UN ambassadors who strongly backed Israel, Haley refrains from any coded language or any attempt, however poor, to appear balanced. Last March, she told a crowd of 18,000 supporters at the Israel lobby, AIPAC’s annual policy conference, that this is a new era for US-Israel relations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Haley plays the "Israel Whisperer" to the absolute detriment of other relationships in the Middle East, which are equally critical to the possibility of peace being achieved here.

To downplay Israel's egregious human rights abuses against the Palestinians is rather akin to a doctor's touching up an x-ray, so the patient doesn't believe their cancer is really that severe.

Was Otto Warmbier an American Student or an Israeli Spy?

And now the six million dollar question. Was Warmbier an Israeli spy? Who knows, but it is likely that someone in North Korea thought he was.

We know that Israel and North Korea are extremely hostile towards each other. North Korea has never recognised the Jewish State and in 1988 it recognised the State of Palestine as including all of Israel. Israel often accuses North Korea of trading arms with Hamas and Syria.

Peculiarly, not a single MSM outlet has referred to Warmbier's ties with Israel. Until his last hours, Israel and the Jewish community kept silent about Warmbier’s Jewish identity, his Zionist affiliation and his visit to Israel. Maybe this silence is more revealing than anything else.

Rabbi Calls for Poisoning of Palestinian Water Supply

The foreign ministry of the Palestinian Authority (PA), Sunday, demanded the arrest of a Jewish Rabbi, who called on Israeli settlers to poison water used by Palestinians in hundreds of towns and villages across the occupied West Bank.
The Palestinian national office for the defense of land and resistance of settlements warned of the dangers and consequences of such calls.

In its weekly report, it explained that Rabbi Shlomo Mlmad, the chairman of the so-called Council of Rabbis in West Bank settlements, called on settlers to poison Palestinians through their water supply, which came to light by the Israeli organization ‘Breaking the Silence’.

Group member Yehuda Shaul said, according to WAFA, that the aim behind poisoning water in the West Bank is to push Palestinians out of their towns and cities in order to allow settlers to take over Palestinian lands.

The US media is echoing the Pentagon’s explanation, which is that the Syrian jet bombed (or was threatening to bomb) units of the US-supported Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) around the town of Tanf. The Syrians say they were attacking forces aligned with ISIS, which both the US and the Syrian government are supposedly fighting.

Stuck in the midst of this four-sided civil war is the United States, with no real policy, and with its military strategy ceded to commanders on the ground – who are pursuing the same course set by the previous administration, i.e. canoodling with radical Islamists bent on regime change in Damascus. In alliance with the Saudis, the British, the Israelis, and the Jordanians, Washington is seemingly still determined to oust Assad and establish a Sunni regime in Damascus.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am disgusted and distraught over President Trump's foreign policy; all the "non-intervention" pledges we heard from Candidate Trump seems to have completely disappeared, with President Trump.

Netanyahu's 'Honor': Work Starts on First New West Bank Settlements in 25 Years

AFTER SHOCKING SAUDI SHAKEUP "NOT A QUESTION OF IF BUT WHEN NEW ESCALATION WITH IRAN STARTS"

Two days ago, when reporting on the surprising "terrorist attempt" by Iran's National Guard on a major Saudi offshore oilfiled (at least according to Saudi media), we said that "if the Saudi account of events is accurate, and if Iran is indeed preparing to take out Saudi oil infrastructure in retaliation or otherwise, the simmering cold war between Saudi Arabia and Iran is about to get very hot." This in turn followed an earlier analysis on the ongoing Syrian war in which we said that "the next major regional conflict appears set to be between Saudi Arabia and Iran. All it needs is a catalyst."

That catalyst, according to energy consultancy Petromatrix, may have been revealed overnight with the stunning Saudi royal shakeup in which the King announced he was stripping the current Crown Prince, his nephew Mohamed bin Nayef (MBF), of all titles and obligations, and replacing him with his son Mohamed bin Salman (MBS).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In his recent trip to the Middle East, President Trump has "thrown his hat", coupled with American military power, behind Saudi Arabia against Iran, and this, unfortunately,will ultimately prove to be a very grave error in judgement on the part of this President and his administration.

Tel Aviv has been cheerleading forever for "regime change" in Tehran, but only at the cost of American blood and American money.

Russian political and military figures have been consistent in saying that if Iran is attacked, it will come to its aid militarily.

So in a war against Iran, you have Iran and Russia (and potentially China) on one side, and the US and Saudi Arabia on the other.

And right now, the US military doesn't have the weaponry; the money; the troop strength; or the manufacturing to insure a successful outcome to a war against Russia.

Advocacy organizations hold panel discussions on Capitol Hill all the time; the location makes it easier for congressional staff to attend. What made this one unusual was its subject: the Palestinian experience under Israeli control.

Rabbi Calls for Poisoning of Palestinian Water Supply

The foreign ministry of the Palestinian Authority (PA), Sunday, demanded the arrest of a Jewish Rabbi, who called on Israeli settlers to poison water used by Palestinians in hundreds of towns and villages across the occupied West Bank.

The Palestinian national office for the defense of land and resistance of settlements warned of the dangers and consequences of such calls.

In its weekly report, it explained that Rabbi Shlomo Mlmad, the chairman of the so-called Council of Rabbis in West Bank settlements, called on settlers to poison Palestinians through their water supply, which came to light by the Israeli organization ‘Breaking the Silence’.

Group member Yehuda Shaul said, according to WAFA, that the aim behind poisoning water in the West Bank is to push Palestinians out of their towns and cities in order to allow settlers to take over Palestinian lands.

US and Russia Teetering on the Brink of War: What You are Not Being Told

On June 18, 2017, prominent U.K. newspaper the Guardian asked an important question: Has Trump opened the door to conflict with Iran?

According to Foreign Policy, a pair of top White House officials are pushing to broaden the war in Syria against Iranian-backed troops who are currently posing a major threat to the American military's goals in the region.
FP explains:

Ezra Cohen-Watnick, the senior director for intelligence on the National Security Council, and Derek Harvey, the NSC's top Middle East advisor, want the United States to start going on the offensive in southern Syria, where, in recent weeks, the U.S. military has taken a handful of defensive actions against Iranian-backed forces fighting in support of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

RAW SEWAGE SEEPS OUT OF GAZA AS ELECTRICITY SUPPLIES DWINDLE

The Israel Electric Company, which typically transfers about 120 megawatts of electricity daily to Gaza, confirmed that it would continue reducing the supply gradually over the next few days.

With minimal electricity available to treat Gaza’s wastewater, continued power cuts could cause irreparable damage not only to the Strip but also to Israel, as raw sewage runs rampant across maritime borders.

“We’re starting to play Russian roulette,” Gidon Bromberg, Israeli director of EcoPeace Middle East, told The Jerusalem Post on Tuesday.

Pursuant to a request from the Palestinian Authority, which is aiming to pressure Hamas to cede control over the isolated territory, Israel began decreasing the amount of electricity it supplies to Gaza on Monday by 8 MW. The Israel Electric Corporation, which typically transfers about 120 MW of electricity daily to Gaza, confirmed that it would continue reducing the supply gradually over the next few days.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is collective punishment against the Palestinian people; this is, of course, something at which the Israeli government excels.

Did Israel conduct illegal ‘medical experiments’ on missing Yemeni children?

A committee in Israel on the disappearance of Yemeni children met last week after Israeli media released reports exposing testimonies of doctors who performed unauthorized medical tests on children who went missing shortly after the creation of Israel.

The allegations - based on 20-year-old testimonies by Israeli medical professionals - were presented on Wednesday to the Knesset Special Committee on the Disappearance of Children from Yemen, the East and the Balkans.

The documents were gathered in 1996-1997 by a Knesset-appointed investigative commission tasked with probing the disappearance of over 1,000 children. The documents said that experiments were conducted on the new immigrants from Yemen and whose fates were unknown to their families.

The Middle East Is Blowing Up

The Saudis and Iranians are leaders of Islam’s two main factions, the Shiites and Sunnis. This makes them natural rivals, but until now they’ve mostly sparred through proxies rather than directly. Here again, the conflict is going from cold to hot.

And that’s in just the past few days.

The old stuff that caused most Americans to tune out hasn’t gone away:

The Syrian war continues to rage,

the Saudis and their allies continue to bomb Yemen even further back into the Middle Ages,

Israel continues to build new settlements in Palestine and threaten to take out Iran’s nuclear facilities,

ISIS is still burning and beheading its victims on YouTube,

and Turkey keeps slipping further into dictatorship.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mike and I are watching these developments, and for me, it's like the archetypal dream of watching two locomotives coming at each other on the same track, but unable to stop the impending collision.

The lunatics in the American Deep State have appeared to have taken over the asylum, and have charted a path for war and chaos, which will affect every American in this country.

Look for the return of the draft, and a confiscation of anything which could be construed as "real money", i.e., gold and silver, just as Roosevelt did.

And please, folks - and I know I sound like a chipped CD on this issue - if you haven't already started to prep, there is a word in the English language, and that word is TODAY!! Go to whatever big box stores you frequent, and get storable food, water filtration, and extra meds for yourselves, and your pets. Make sure you have a plan, if you need to regroup, and the family is not together. Create community with neighbors your trust.

Israel’s Dirty Little Secret

At a recent panel discussion in Washington, screenwriter, film director and producer Oliver Stone briefly addressed the issue of alleged Russian interference in the recent national election, observing that “Israel interfered in the U.S. election far more than Russia and nobody is investigating them.” A few days later, in an interview with Stephen Colbert on the Late Show, Stone returned to the theme, responding to an aggressive claim that Russia had interfered in the election by challenging Colbert with “Israel had far more involvement in the U.S. election than Russia. Why don’t you ask me about that?”

Don’t look for the exchange with Colbert on YouTube. CBS deleted it from its broadcast and website, demonstrating once again that the “I” word cannot be disparaged on national television.

Israeli Settlement Construction Rates Soaring Across West Bank

The latest figures released by Israel’s Bureau of Statistics is showing a massive escalation in settlement construction across the occupied West Bank, with construction starting on 2,758 houses in the past 12 months, an increase of 70% over the previous 12 months.

Since these figures come from the Israeli government, they do not include construction in Occupied East Jerusalem, as under Israeli law that territory has all been annexed and is not considered “settlements” for the sake of internal record-keeping. All indications are that expansion is increasing in East Jerusalem as well.

Settlement watchdog Peace Now was quick to point out that despite this ever-growing investment in settlements in the West Bank, housing construction inside actual Israel (pre-1967 borders) actually dropped 2.5% in the same period of time, despite reports of a housing crisis.

FLASHBACK - US government sued over aid to ‘nuclear’ Israel

A Washington DC non-profit group is suing the US government challenging its authority to provide Israel with foreign aid, arguing that its status – a nuclear power which didn’t sign the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty – means that aiding it contravenes US law.

“This lawsuit is not about foreign policy. It is about the rule of law, presidential power, the structural limits of the U.S. Constitution, and the right of the public to understand the functions of government and informed petition of the government for redress,” stated the complaint filed By Grant F. Smith, Director of the Institute for Research: Middle East Policy (IRmep).

The lawsuit filed last week in DC federal district court names President Barack Obama, the CIA director and secretaries of Commerce, Defense, Energy, State and Treasury as defendants.

UNITED STATES SIGNALS INTENTION TO OCCUPY EASTERN SYRIA AND DIVIDE THE NATION

The US version of the incident goes like this (courtesy of The Hill)…

A statement from the U.S. military said it shot down the Syrian SU-22 in self-defense and after contacting Russian counterparts through the established deconfliction zone. The Syrian aircraft was bombing U.S.-backed forces fighting the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) south of Tabqa. It was the first time the United States has shot down a Syrian plane, and the first time a U.S. military jet has shot down any manned aircraft since 1999.
The reality is much more complex, yet simpler. Syria was flying its jets over Syrian sovereign territory, moving to attack Al Qaeda jihadists (aka “moderate rebels”) operating illegally in Syrian territory, and backed up by US forces, which have set up operations illegally within Syrian sovereign territory.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is officially horrible.

There are those elements in the American Deep State which are salivating over the prospect of war with Russia and Iran; they are, unfortunately, completely, certifiably delusional, because at this point in our military's history, our military not have the weaponry; the money; the troop strength; or the manufacturing to ensure a positive outcome of a conventional war with Russia.

Yes, the US government spends a great deal for its weapons; but it winds up with the kinds of military nightmares like the F/A-18 Hornet, which may well be causing Sec Def Mattis some sleepless nights.

US Navy fighter pilot deaths tied to oxygen issues

And please, don't get me started about Lockheed Martin's F-35:

F-35 won't have a chance in real combat

Is the F-35 is a trillion dollar mistake?

The F-35 is a trillion dollar national disaster

Head of US military kit-testing slams F-35, says it's scarcely fit to fly

The F-35 Amazingly has even more problems than we thought

I absolutely abhor war as a means of resolving geopolitical differences.

That being said, however, there is an incestuous relationship between defense contractors, and the political class in this country; and it is going to wind up destroying our ability to wage war, intelligently, and effectively.

Israel implements illegal cuts to Gaza’s power supply

Israel reduced its supply of electricity to the occupied Gaza Strip on Monday morning, in spite of warnings from human rights groups that the move violates international law.

The cuts come despite dire warnings in recent weeks from the International Committee of the Red Cross, the World Health Organization and UN officials that the induced electricity shortage is causing a humanitarian catastrophe, as essential health, water and sanitation facilities cannot function.

In mid-May, the ICRC declared that Gaza was on the brink of “systemic collapse.”

ISRAEL SECRETLY PAYING SALARIES OF SYRIAN REBELS ON GOLAN HEIGHTS BORDER: REPORT

Israel is secretly supporting Syrian rebels operating near its occupied Golan Heights territory, providing money, food, fuel and medical supplies, according to fighters who claim to receive the aid.

Israel has previously treated wounded Syrian rebels in its hospitals but interviews with rebels conducted by the Wall Street Journal suggest that Israel is directly supporting opponents of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the six-year-long civil war.

Israel is opposed to the rule of Assad and his forces. It also sees militants belonging to Lebanese militia Hezbollah who support Assad’s regime forces as posing a threat to its security on the Golan Heights border.

Why has Israel embraced al-Qaida’s branch in Syria?

The Israeli prime minister’s crude attempts to conflate ISIS with Hamas should not be allowed to conceal an important truth: Israel aids the forces of “militant Islam” when it is considered opportune to do so.

The most egregious example of such aid in recent times has been Israel’s support for Jabhat al-Nusra, al-Qaida’s franchise in Syria, as witnessed by UN peacekeeping forces stationed in the occupied Golan Heights.

Israel’s collusion with al-Qaida has been virtually ignored by the American media, with a few exceptions. For example, The Wall Street Journal reported in March that Israel has been treating wounded al-Nusra fighters and then sending them back into the Golan to battle Hizballah and the Syrian army.

Israel Has Been Secretly Funding Syrian Rebels For Years

Earlier, when discussing why the Syrian "rebels" fighting Assad are in "turmoil", we said that as a result of the ongoing Qatar crisis the various Saudi and Qatari supply chains supporting the rebels, both in terms of weapons and funding, had dried up due to the diplomatic fallout involving Qatar and Saudi Arabia. "Together with Turkey and the United States, Qatar and Saudi Arabia have been major sponsors of the insurgency, arming an array of groups that have been fighting to topple Syria's Iran-backed president."

We concluded that "the rebellion against Assad now seems moot, which is why the most likely outcome is a continued phase-out of support for forces fighting the Syria government until eventually the situation reverts back to its pre-2011 "status quo."

US Jewish scientist gave Israel spy tech before Six Day War – report

A year before the 1967 Six Day War, a Jewish-American scientist reportedly gave Israel groundbreaking technology that facilitated eavesdropping on secret communications between the surrounding Arab nations, ultimately leading to a decisive victory. Just before he died last July, nuclear scientist Zalman Shapiro told a reporter from Pittsburgh's Tribune-Review that he gave Israel advanced batteries that could be used for long-distance surveillance ... Shapiro told the Tribune-Review that he had supplied Israel with batteries for other top-secret projects, but would not provide details, saying the information was still classified ...

... In general parlance, the Jewish People consists of all the Jews in the world, more than half of whom live outside Israel and are citizens of other states. They are not asked if they want the State of Israel to represent them. Goes without asking ... Jewish religious law says that "a Jew, even if he commits a sin, is still a Jew." Adopting the Christian - or any other - faith is certainly a sin, but the convert still remains a Jew, whether he wants it or not. The Nation-State of the Jewish People belongs to all of them. Or, rather, they all belong to the Nation State of the Jewish People ... The fact is that every Jewish child in Israel carries the Bible deep in their consciousness. Meaning: Jews are special. Jews are unique. It's "them" and "us". The whole world against us.

Tillerson: US Working for Regime Change in Iran

Speaking to the House Foreign Affairs Committee yesterday, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was asked about whether or not the Trump Administration’s policy is one of trying to impose regime change on Iran. While Tillerson insisted that the specifics of administration policy on Iran are still under development, he did confirm that the goal remains regime change.

Exactly how they expect to pull that off remains to be seen, but Tillerson said the US policy as it stands is to rely on “elements inside of Iran” who can be supported toward the end goal of regime change, with the hope it would be a “peaceful transition of that government.”

Israeli and international groups warn of looming Gaza disaster

Israeli and international NGOS joined the UN on Wednesday in warning of a "total collapse" in Gaza if Israel goes ahead with plans to further cut power supplies to the enclave.

A joint statement of 16 groups, among them Israel's B'Tselem, Peace Now and Rabbis for Human Rights along with Amnesty International, said they has asked Israel's attorney general to intervene.

Gazans currently receive only three to four hours of mains electricity a day, delivered from the territory's own power station and others in Israel and Egypt.

Senior Israeli ministers decided on Sunday to reduce the amount of electricity supplied to Gaza by between 45 and 60 minutes a day after Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas cut funding for it by his West Bank-based Palestinian Authority.

The move was widely seen as an attempt by the Palestinian leader to step up pressure on his rivals in the Islamist movement Hamas which runs the Gaza Strip.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

But you see, these are just the kinds of outcomes the Israeli government in Tel Aviv wants to see happen; epidemics; diseases; and the death spiral of the entirety of Gaza.

It's one factor in a multi-component Israeli "final solution" to their "Palestinian problem." And it is not helping that a number of Israeli Rabbis are encouraging outright violence against Palestinians:

Israeli Rabbis come under fire amid Settler violence

Top Israeli Rabbis advocate Palestinian genocide

State Funded Israeli Rabbi calls for the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians

Netanyahu wants the UN out of the way to be able to achieve his objective

Israeli and US officials are in the process of jointly pre-empting Donald Trump’s supposed "ultimate deal" to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. They hope to demote the Palestinian issue to a footnote in international diplomacy.

The conspiracy – a real one – was much in evidence last week during a visit to the region by Nikki Haley, Washington’s envoy to the United Nations. Her escort was Danny Danon, her Israeli counterpart and a fervent opponent of Palestinian statehood.

Mr Danon makes Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu look moderate. He has backed Israel annexing the West Bank and ruling over Palestinians apatheid-style. Ms Haley appears unperturbed. During a meeting with Mr Netanyahu, she told him that the UN was "a bully to Israel". She has warned the powerful Security Council to focus on Iran, Syria, Hamas and Hizbollah, instead of Israel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Haley has obviously become completely co opted by the Israeli government and AIPAC, on the issues of Palestinian rights, and a Palestinian nation; she is simply behaving as her masters in Tel Aviv and DC wish her to behave on this issue.

The two young hoaxers responsible for the widely reported “rise in antisemitism”

DID YOU NOTICE THE 'MASSIVE SURGE' IN ANTISEMITISM in America in 2017? An eighty-six percent rise in the first three months is the figure that has been disseminated by the influential Anti-Defamation League (ADL). Many other Jewish organizations and writers joined in the chorus, calling for “something to be done” to stem this alarming, rising tide. They called for special protections to be afforded to Jews in their schools, neighborhoods and community centers, and new laws to be passed against hate speech, and even against antisemitism itself. Possibly American's constitutional First Amendment right of free speech should be amended to prohibit certain kinds of speech.

HOW THE GRINCH STOLE RAMADAN IN GAZA

Ramadan, a time of worship and joy for Muslims around the globe, is mixed with sadness in Gaza.

During Ramadan three years ago, Israel launched a massive military offensive that would last 51 days and claim more than 2,200 Palestinian lives.

The many families in Gaza who lost loved ones during that offensive, and the ones that came before it, feel little joy in their absence.

Successive Israeli military offensives, and a decade of blockade, have destroyed Gaza’s economy, further clouding Ramadan.

Israeli DM: Al-Jazeera Is ‘Nazi-, Soviet-Style Propaganda’

Israeli officials have been eagerly backing regional hostility toward Qatar, and Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman has doubled down on that, accusing the Qatar-funded al-Jazeera network, the most popular news media outlet in the Middle East, of being “Nazi-, Soviet-style propaganda.”

Lieberman’s evidence for this was that al-Jazeera has often run stories critical of Israel, saying that such behavior doesn’t rise to the level of journalism. Ironically, al-Jazeera is historically the only Arab media outlet that has allowed Israeli officials on to tell their side of the story at all, with most outlets banning Israelis as a matter of course.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israeli DM Lieberman, a word, please.

Your rant appears to be borne from desperation on the cusp of madness.

I have always found Al-Jazeera (English version) to be a reasonable, and responsible, voice for the Arab world, and the quality of its journalism is generally quite elevated.

Israel has, most generally, treated Palestinians in the occupied territories quite horrifically, and that reality cannot be disproven, even by such vicious, and logic-challenged, rants such as this.

Israel Cuts Gaza Electricity at Abbas’ Request

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ effort to cut electricity to the Gaza Strip as a means of “pressuring” Hamas to hand over control of the region to him is finally getting support from Israel’s security cabinet, which today signed off on a plan to cut exports to the Gaza Strip by 40%, meaning about 45 minutes less of electricity per day in a strip that already is in a state of blackout more than three-quarters of the time.

Abbas had originally sought a 100% cut in Gaza’s electricity, but Israel refused, citing humanitarian concerns. Even with this smaller cut, Israeli military advisers are warning a mounting humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip will likely escalate the level of violence along the Israeli border.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has shown his true colors, and they are those of a monster, as someone who would ask that this electricity be cut to Palestinians for purely political purposes.

The following, related story from haaretz.com is deeply worrying:

Hamas warns: Israel's 'disastrous' new power cut would spark an explosion in Gaza

But perhaps, this kind of "explosion" is precisely what Tel Aviv wants to happen as the "excuse" for massive assassinations of Palestinians, as happened in Operation Cast Lead.

Zionist Fear Factory Kills Free Speech

America is still embarrassed by the infamous McCarthy Hearings which ruined the lives of thousands of innocents during the fifties.

Anyone then, suspected of being linked to communism was arrested, interrogated and either imprisoned or forced to give names of others suspected of communist tendencies.

And so the fear and intimidation spread like a great plague across the USA. Names were blacklisted, careers and lives ruined as the authorities ruthlessly traded on peoples’ fears, paranoia and weaknesses.

With little or no evidence people were found guilty and anyone daring to question any of the actions and the wild accusations also had suspicion cast upon them.

But hey folks, that was back in the Fifties and various administrations resolved the same insane hysteria, hatred and fears would never again cast a dark shadow across the Land of the Free.

Why Israelis must disrupt the occupation

One of the most disturbing aspects about the reality in Palestine is its normalcy.

It has become normal to see Palestinians shot and killed, even children. The faces of young Palestinians showing up daily on social media, boys and girls shot by soldiers, accused falsely of attempting to stab a soldier.

It has become normal to see Israeli soldiers shooting skunk water and tear gas, and snipers using live ammunition at unarmed protesters who want the land that was once theirs and the freedom they never had.

And it has become normal for us to engage in the endless, fruitless debate on whether Palestinians throwing stones at armed Israeli soldiers who invade their homes constitutes violence, or whether or not Zionism – which produced this violence – is a racist ideology. And all the while the suffering and the oppression of millions of Palestinians go on almost uninterrupted.

It is no secret that Israelis and Palestinians live two separate realities.

In photos: Gaza left to suffer in the dark

Palestinians in the occupied Gaza Strip have endured a chronic electricity crisis since Israel imposed an economic blockade on the territory 10 years ago.

The territory’s electricity infrastructure has been targeted and damaged during successive Israeli military offensives, and Israeli import restrictions have hindered repair.

An Egyptian crackdown on tunnels through which cheaper fuel was smuggled into Gaza exacerbated the situation in 2013.

Catastrophe looms in Gaza

Israel will reduce its electricity supply to the occupied Gaza Strip by 40 percent, turning an already dire situation into a catastrophe.

Israel says the further cutback, approved by the Israeli cabinet on Sunday night, is based on a request by the Palestinian Authority.

Before the cut, Gaza’s population of two million has received only four hours of electricity a day, with hospitals, desalination and sewage treatment plants severely imperiled or made inoperative.

Israeli hacking company NSO Group is on sale for more than $1 billion

The Israeli hacking company NSO Group has been put up for sale for a price of more than $1 billion, according to multiple people familiar with the matter.

The U.S.-based private equity firm Francisco Partners Management, which owns NSO Group, is looking to bring in around 10 times the $120 million it paid for a majority stake in the company in 2014. The group grew from around 50 employees when it was acquired to nearly 10 times that size, including more than 200 engineers dedicated to the hacking products that bring in the company’s rising profits.

NSO, which is known for selling cutting-edge offensive hacking technology to governments around the world, traces its roots to the Israeli military’s world-renowned signals intelligence unit known as Unit 8200.
