The politics of the Rothschildean branch office known as the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG) are of course guided by its financial policies. These policies are determined by the European Central Bank (ECB), which functions quite openly as a branch office of the global Jewish financial institution Goldman-Sachs.
Powerful Jewish forces are at work to reactivate the Rothschild Plan of 1939, which foresaw the takeover of Germany for the creation of a new Jewish state. Rothschild proposed leaving Germany to the Zionists and parcelling out the Germans among the nations of the world. We are now in an advanced stage of planning to create a new Jewish state on German soil. Continue reading…>>
Liberation is very different from independence, because our right to self-determination must lead to the right of return and full equality for all inhabitants of the state of Palestine.
The two-state solution is a racist dogma that cannot guarantee all the rights; withdrawal of Israeli troops from the Arab lands occupied in 1967; implementation of UN resolution 194; and an end to Israel’s apartheid policies against Palestinian citizens of the state of Israel.
To reach a final-status agreement, both Israelis and Palestinians must agree on the endgame. It cannot be denied: This most fundamental requirement for negotiations is missing. An active international role under the framework of a multilateral conference could set and implement requirements and obligations for peace rather than granting impunity to the stronger party so it can violate agreements without any sort of arbitration mechanism.
If the multilateral framework of the Geneva talks worked elsewhere, why not for Palestine?
If you came armed with a gun to my house and took it from me, and then forced me and my family to live in the shed at the end of the garden, you could hardly be surprised if I started making trouble for you. If I called the police and they said they couldn’t help, you could hardly be surprised if I eventually decided to get a gun myself to threaten you back. If, when you saw I had a gun too, you then built a wall around the shed to imprison me, you could hardly be surprised if I used the tools I had to make primitive grenades and started lobbing them towards the house. None of this would prove how unreasonable I was, or how inherently violent. Continue reading…>>
Our opponents call us “Jew haters.” That is a lie and a slander. BDS advocates equal rights for all and consistently opposes all forms of racism, including anti-Semitism. In fact, many progressive Jewish activists, intellectuals, students, feminists and others participate in and sometimes lead BDS campaigns in Western countries. The increasing impact of Israeli supporters of BDS has led the Knesset to pass a draconian anti-boycott law banning advocacy of any boycott against Israel or its complicit institutions.
Falk, an American law professor serving in the independent post, suggested the United Nations Human Rights Council might set up an international forensic team to investigate Jaradat’s death.
More than 64 years after Mohammed was forced to leave his home, he longs to return to Isdod. “I still wish I could return. If I could leave everything, every house that I stayed in since, everything I have, I would leave it all. I was born there and I am so attached to that place. The future of my nine children and my 42 grandchildren depends on our return to our home in Palestine. I hope I will be buried in my home, Isdod.”
This “Video” graphically depicts in part the most vile, evil, inhuman Zionist Israeli behavior and actions against the ever suffering practically defenseless Palestinian people of Gaza who have no military or sophisticated American made weapons as Israel has, to defend and protect them from the unwarranted cowardly Israeli military attacks, mayhem and massacres.
This presentation is a Memorial and a Requiem for the Dead of Gaza, Honouring the Valiant Palestinian People and a Monument to the People of Gaza.
England! What of England is it the USAF aircraft carrier? Is it a small part of Europe? Or is it the seat of the powers that Empirically strip the world of its dignity, I personally believe that these seats are spread far and wide, all I know is I am ashamed when I now say I am an Englishman and I sorely wish I were not ashamed, for that England was a Dream that nearly came into being, but now blood is everywhere.
The lens of reality is not one used by mainstream American media, unfortunately, and so the Palestinian internment progresses largely unchecked. At the end of the day the Israelis will go on governing themselves. What’s worse is that Netanyahu will be forced, as usual, to form a coalition within the Knesset and will likely align with the ultraconservative rather than move to the center. Palestinians live without autonomy in a land that was originally theirs, ever heard this storyline before?
Neve Gordon considers the way the results of the Israeli elections are being presented in the Israeli media and compares this with the reality: a victory for right-wing, anti-peace parties.
Concomitant with these rumours is the Egyptian government’s and the opposition’s race to please the United States and its Zionist lobby. While the very same Issam al-Aryan spoke about the tragedy of the Jewish holocaust while in the US on a Muslim Brotherhood promotional trip in May 2011, the naïve and charisma-less Mohamed el-Baradei upped the ante by telling a German newspaper that elected Salafi and Brotherhood members of parliament should not be trusted to draft the Egyptian constitution because they allegedly deny the holocaust!
Khaled Abu Toameh is symbiotically linked to some of Israel’s and the United States’ most right-wing, anti-Arab and neo-conservative bodies. One of these is The Jerusalem Report, which comes under the corporate umbrella of the Israeli right-wing Jerusalem Post Group.
According to Wikipedia, Abu Toameh is listed as a speaker for the Hasbara Fellowships, an organization that brings students to Israel and trains them to be effective pro-Israel activists on college campuses. The Fellowship in fact brought him to more than a dozen talks at various university campuses.
As Jews of conscience, we call on all supporters of social justice to stand up for Palestinian Right of Return and a democratic state throughout historic Palestine — “From the River to the Sea” — with equal rights for all.
The system of ID cards is used as a weapon to further cement the fragmentation of the Palestinian population as it confines the Palestinians to their geographic Israeli-controlled Bantustans, forbidding Palestinians with Gaza IDs entry into the West Bank and Jerusalem and vice versa.
Now that Al Jazeera has bought Current TV, a channel shown on Time Warner cable, the Time Warner megacorp became the first system operator out of the box to say it would not carry the new news channel that the Qatar-based network wants to launch in America, in much the same way that BBC set up BBC America to offer its programming to US viewers.
On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin talks to Peace Activist and Author of ‘The General’s Son’, Miko Peled, about the main misconceptions about the Israeli Palestinian conflict, and about the proposed idea of irradiating a ‘Jewish State’ all together.
The Israeli actions are a source of great suffering for Palestinians, it is tempting also to see them as being a sign that the Zionist project is doomed. Israeli actions seem almost designed to accelerate their own international isolation. One might almost assume that they consider it more worthwhile, at this stage, to establish “facts on the ground” which would partially dictate final dispositions.
As the African National Congress voted Thursday to support the Palestinian call for boycott, divestment and sanctions against Israel known as BDS, declaring it was “unapologetic in its view that the Palestinians are the victims and the oppressed in the conflict with Israel,” we look at a new film that examines the apartheid analogy commonly used to describe the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. “Roadmap to Apartheid.”
Though mainstream media has been silent, Israel has violated these simple truce points continuously since they were agreed upon. Not only are the crossings still very restricted, but the fire into Gaza continues, with the first one occurring only four days after the truce agreement.
Here we list some of Israel’s breaches of the ceasefire agreement.
Due to the ongoing illegal closure imposed by Israel, some of the required medical supplies and devices cannot enter the Gaza Strip, causing additional suffering to patients throughout their recovery process.
The misery and torment that befell Newton can be multiplied a thousand fold across the Arab world. American policy and actions have resulted in the deaths (i.e. murder) of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of innocent children. The deaths of these children can be considered as war crimes and a crime against humanity of the highest order. They should shock and outrage us, compelling us to demand an immediate change in American foreign policy.
The shocking reality is that many of the inhabitants of the Gaza Strip are a few miles away from the land of their ethnically cleansed former villages, across the border fence in southern Israel. Like so much else with Palestine, you can’t understand Gaza if you don’t understand the Nakba.
Lev Leviev’s companies have also been accused of involvement in human rights abuses and unethical business practices in the diamond industry in Angola, Namibia and Zimbabwe.
Charges that the war crimes includes torture, enforced disappearances, assassinations, murders, kidnappings, extraordinary renditions, ‘shock and awe’ (bombings), and (the use of) depleted uranium, white phosphorus, cluster bombs, drone strikes, and the like.
In confiscating fishing boats, Israel denies Gaza fishermen the right to livelihood by removing their means to make a living. The right to not to be arbitrarily deprived of property is protected under Article 17 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Prof. Boyle – Arafat and PA Legal Advisor – says: “Palestinians will start a “legal intifada” against Israel, supported by international law. I have already recommended to them, over in Ramallah.”
Infograph to illustrate and explain how Israel’s settlement demographic changes within the West Bank obstruct the possibility of the two-state solution. The numbers suggest that Abbas’ bid to the United Nations was too little, too late.
There is not a government on the planet today more supportive of Israel than Harper’s Canada. Israel Hayom, Israel’s largest circulation daily newspaper, said: “When he discusses the Palestinian issue, Baird sounds like he could have voted in this week’s Likud primaries.”
