Whenever Israel’s supporters today speak of a “special relationship” with the US that is supposedly graven in stone, it is useful to remember that something very different existed when Israel came into existence in 1948 on the gutted carcass of Palestine. The US recognized Israel, but that was about it. Hollywood was (and remains) largely a Jewish preserve, but their level of influence elsewhere – in the government, the media and academia – was limited. Prominent American Jews felt no obligation to endorse Israel or Israeli leaders, no matter what happened. Dozens (including Albert Einstein) signed a letter published in the New York Times in 1948 protesting the arrival of Menachem Begin and condemning his actions. And the general American public was largely indifferent to what happened in the Middle East.

O! Muslim Militants, by what stretch of the imagination do you find any justification for your suicide bombings, slaughter and kidnapping of civilians, destruction of mosques, churches and synagogues, expelling Muslims and Non-Muslims from their homes and villages, and massacring fellow Muslims.
One must ask the Muslim militants this most important and basic of all questions. What Revelation or Book and Prophet or Messenger do you follow to commit such crimes against Islam and humanity? It most certainly is not the Holy Qur’an and Prophet Muhammad given that all your crimes against humanity directly violate and contradict God’s Book and His Prophet Muhammad.
There may not be a magic bullet to end the Zionist domination of the American political process, but in Chuck Hagel, we got a dud. I do not regret supporting him at the beginning, but I wish he had shown more fortitude as the process degenerated — admittedly a lot to ask, but then the position to which he was nominated cries out for someone like that, which it has not had for many years. Well, perhaps next time — if there is one — it’ll be a Marine in his place.
Jamal Kanj highlights recent scientific research which proves that in 1948 “the children of the original Jews” – the Palestinians – were replaced by 8th century converts with no roots in the Middle East.
Zionism was to be the cure for “anti-Semitism” and the savior of Jews; however it turned out to be the Jews’ greatest threat and nightmare. So much for God’s “Promised Land” to the Jews. If God himself gave Palestine to the Jews (of yester years, not those of today) wouldn’t every Jew immigrate to the Promised Land and fulfill and obey God’s command and promise?
Obviously not. The majority of Jews rejected God’s covenant and promise preferring the capitalistic success and power they have in western nations, none more so than in the Jewish compliant U.S.
In fact more Jews are leaving Israel than are entering it.
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.
The “Jewish Lobby” has such power and influence on the U.S. government; one only needs to read the main reason U.S. Senators, mostly Republicans vying for a piece of the Democrats Jewish subsidy, are opposing the nomination of Senator Chuck Hagel for Secretary of Defense.
According to a leading opponent of the nomination, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who appeared on CNN (Jan. 6) explaining his opposition by saying Senator Hagel “is very antagonistic to the State of Israel”.
What the Hell? Israel – Senator Hagel is nominated by President Obama for Secretary of Defense of the United States, not Israel.
They clearly state their position on Jewish State as following: “We recognize the sacred right of the state of Israel and the Israeli people to the land of historic Israel. The right of Return of the Jewish people to the land of their foremothers and forefathers is a sacred right. It has no statute of limitation. The return must continue to enrich the Middle East. We recognize Jerusalem as simply a Jewish city, It must never be divided. She is, and shall always be, the united capital of Israel. The future of the Palestinians lies with the Arab states. A Palestinian state in Judea and Samaria constitute an imminent danger to world peace.”
Who would imagine that Israeli Jews could be so intimidated by the innocuous Christmas tree? Far from “swallowing up” the historic Palestinian city of Nazareth, “Upper Nazareth is a Jewish town and all its symbols are Jewish,” Shimon Gapso, the mayor of Upper Nazareth said. “As long as I hold office, no non-Jewish symbol will be presented in the city.”
The illegal Israeli (read Jewish) 8 metre high apartheid barrier is designed not for security but the theft of 80% of Bethlehem’s land to build a ring of illegal Jewish settlements. Why is the world so silent?
According to Israeli human rights groups, there was a portentous increase in religious hate crimes directed towards historical Christian monasteries, churches and graveyards in 2012.
This Christmas, new Israeli Herods abetted by Western powers are driving Christians from their land and transforming native churches into Israeli tourist attractions and grand “archaeological sites” like the Pyramids, detached from their aboriginal traditions.
Christians in Palestine are not suffering persecution, because we are not considered to be a religious community, but rather the people of Palestine. We have the same rights and the same obligations.
Fr Manuel says, “peace is possible if justice is possible,” so get off your fat backsides and ACT to deliver JUSTICE.
The lines are drawn. Morsi and the Brotherhood have been exposed as the heirs of the old dictatorship in new garb. The struggle for an open society is being waged by the betrayed on the streets of Egyptian cities. It will be a fight to the death. Brotherhood posters put up throughout Egypt in support of the pending constitution urge people to vote yes to “Supporting Legitimacy and Shariah [Islamic law].” Those who oppose legitimacy and Islamic law, it goes without saying, are heretics.
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.”
A free Palestine has so much to offer. Agricultural industry, tourism industry, cultural and arts and very rich natural resources, but none of these can be economically developed as long as Israel maintains a 10-meter-high separation wall and hundreds of military checkpoints within Palestinian lands, and as long as Israel continues to control the borders, effectively blocking the entire Muslim world from visiting and frequently turning away Christians – and even Jews – from its borders.
So there’ll be no lasting peace. History will just keep repeating itself and the torment for blameless citizens will continue on both sides of the Gaza border.
Israel’s naming of the campaign that resulted in the bombing of Tel Aviv is preposterous. Manipulative, self-idolatry act of violence NOT backed by God.
US Christian leaders prick the Zionists’ pretty balloon. And the ADL Foxman goes ballistic and pull out of national Jewish-Christian interfaith dialogue.
They invaded and occupied our lands, they massacred millions of our people, they enslaved us, they stole the resources for their benefit, they imposed tyrannical puppet rulers upon us, they said they came to civilize us, save our souls by converting us to Christianity. And now they are on another crusade—a crusade to denigrate, demonize, and slander our faith and our most beloved and merciful of Prophets—Muhammad.
Why would one Christian group snub another? How did these churchmen, far removed from the rotten reality, become experts on “security, dignity and peace” in the Palestinians’ struggle for freedom? Have they been there, rolled up their sleeves and immersed themselves in the snakepit that the Holy Land has been allowed to become? What makes them think they’ve found a way forward while Palestine remains under brutal occupation?
America never treated Muslims respectfully. US media and Hollywood play lead roles. How many more millions will die before The New York Times and other media scoundrels acknowledge decades of US mass murder?
Each of our brave candidates crawled down the blood red carpet to AIPAC’s golden podium to declare their allegiance and fidelity to the Zionist State, outdoing each other in obsequies and obedience.
In the past Hamas has shown great respect for the Christian tradition of Christmas and, I hear, Hamas officials in Bethlehem used to dress up as Santa Claus to distribute gifts to Christian children. So the question remains: has Hamas really become such a Scrooge* as to torpedo Christmas with a tree ban?
Stuart Littlewood questions the ethics of British politicians and church leaders who profess a commitment to Christian values but look the other way, actively support or are content to be identified with Israel while it commits crimes against the people of Palestine – Christians and Muslims.
The new-born Jesus then closes: “And peace be upon me the day I was born, the day that I die, and the day that I am raised up alive.”
Here is a new Christmas video for Palestine. Yet People Celebrate New Year 2011.
