“Whenever I hear of politicians being compared to prostitutes, I ask myself why would anyone want to drag ladies of the evening through mud like that?”
My comment: I was not seeking to disparage ladies of the evening (or the day). The point by obvious implication is that prostitution is another name for politics.
As long as Israel runs the foreign policy of the world’s greatest “weapon of mass destruction”, the United States, and as long as Arab regimes assist and submit to Israel’s and America’s hegemony in the region; GAZA will eventually die out.
The West Bank will be totally annexed given the pace of illegal settlement construction during the “peace process”; and Jerusalem, yes, Al Quds, will be completely Judaized. Continue reading…>>
The Jewish paradox comes down to this. Israel was created by Zionism to guarantee the wellbeing and existence of the Jews, but that wellbeing and perhaps even existence is most seriously threatened by Zionism’s policies and actions.
What we are witnessing today is a rising, global tide of anti-Israelism. It is NOT a manifestation of anti-Semitism, meaning that it’s not being driven by prejudice against or loathing and even hatred of Jews just because they are Jews. Anti-Israelism is being provoked by Israel’s arrogance of power, its sickening self-righteousness and its contempt for international law in general and the rights of the Palestinians in particular. Continue reading…>>
Israel has been poisoned by the psychosis of permanent war. It has been morally bankrupted by the sanctification of victimhood, which it uses to justify an occupation that rivals the brutality and racism of apartheid South Africa. Its democracy—which was always exclusively for Jews—has been hijacked by extremists who are pushing the country toward fascism. Many of Israel’s most enlightened and educated citizens—1 million of them—have left the country. Its most courageous human rights campaigners, intellectuals and journalists—Israeli and Palestinian—are subject to constant state surveillance, arbitrary arrests and government-run smear campaigns. Its educational system, starting in primary school, has become an indoctrination machine for the military. And the greed and corruption of its venal political and economic elite have created vast income disparities, a mirror of the decay within America’s democracy. Continue reading…>>
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…>>
Members of Congress who consistently support the political Zionist position are usually motivated by something other than ideology. They are motivated by money. That does not necessarily make them bad people, it just makes them slaves to a bad political system. The ability to call into question their financial allegiance to the Zionists is readily possible when a publicly recognized difference evolves between the desires of the voters who put them in office and the desires of this particular special interest. That now seems to be happening in the case of U.S. foreign policy toward Iran. Continue reading …>>
If you have ever had any doubts about what might be happening to your “freedoms”, the ones that George W. Bush spoke about so grandiloquently, just after 9/11, you must watch and listen to this:
Feinstein: First Amendment is a Special Privilege, Not a Right!
Video link: http://youtu.be/9zjZo-U21mU
Of course I would be branded as being anti-Semitic if I pointed out that Senator Feinstein is a Jew who is trying to further gag the media from publishing what many Jews do not want published, particularly about what the Jewish State of Israel is doing to the Palestinians and the Bedouins, but this would merely mean that I don’t like a certain group of languages that I can’t even understand.
Semitic: Relating to or denoting a family of languages that includes Hebrew, Arabic, and Aramaic and certain ancient languages such as Phoenician
But never mind the inherent dishonesty of the anti-Semitic accusation, if Feinstein gets her way, it would mean that only accredited reporters and journalists would have the right to free speech, but we all know that the great majority of such people are already being gagged by the people they work for: the owners of the mainstream media who who are sympathetic to Israel and Zionism and who rarely let a bad word, about some of the appalling things that Israel gets up, to appear on the pages of your daily newspaper or on your TV screen.
The Holy Land may be the cradle of Judaism, Christianity and Islam, but Israel has preferred to draw on a tradition that imagines the region in terms of a clash of civilisations. This is the context for understanding the announcement this month of a “forum” between the government and Israel’s Christian Palestinians designed to push them into serving in the Israeli military.
Israel would prefer that Christians reject the Palestinian variant of liberation theology and adopt the Christian Zionism that dominates in the US, Israel’s chief sponsor.
Grant F. Smith, research director of IRmep, briefs several hundred Houston area non-profit and business leaders about why Americans are turning away from Israel and challenging Israel’s U.S. lobby. Review of major espionage, propaganda and wealth transfer initiatives.
The Haredim share a common plight with Israel’s Arab population: Both communities face increasing police harassment, discrimination, religious persecution and rising levels of poverty. A Haredim-Arab alliance would unite 30% of the population against a common secular militarist and plutocratic enemy. A study in 2006 claimed that over a third of Israeli Jews identified the Haredim as the most unpopular group in Israel .
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.
Alan Hart examines what it would take for Obama and Abbas to stop being grovellers to Israel and the Zionist lobby, and wonders if they’d both be assassinated if they ceased grovelling.
Those who are of good conscience must consider these things, whether they be so. And find for themselves whether wisdom excelleth folly, as far as light excelleth darkness or is it better to have a mind positioned in nothingness? Political realities are issues of the heart of leadership and although prayer changes things. Change must begin in our own hearts and wisdom manifests within the spirit of our minds. Where regard is rendered unto knowing that through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established: Wherewith, by knowledge shall the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches. Then, let us all learn from a truth, “Through desire a man, having separated himself, seeketh and intermeddleth with the spirit of all wisdom.” From such a place shall we not be made free indeed?
Until and unless we eradicate injustice, we have no reason to know beauty, for all that we create is tainted by that injustice pretending all is well with our world. Truth does not exist if injustice surrounds us and we are silent in our complicity. Proclaiming moral virtue in a world awash in crimes against humanity is condoning the crimes unless we act to eradicate the crimes.
Philip Giraldi, Director of the Council for the National Interest, discusses the “Christian Zionism and American Islamophobia” conference on January 30 at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.; the peculiar interworking of American end-times theology and Israeli politics; the CIA’s skepticism on the effectiveness of drone strikes; and how fleeing Syrians are creating a refugee crisis and security problems.
This election has been a personal blow to Netanyahu, but not to the right. Netanyahu misread the public mood, but not on the central issues that should define the left-right divide in Israel: the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and decades of belligerent Israeli occupation. Far from a collapse of the right, the election demonstrated that the right is continuing to push the center of political gravity ever further rightwards.
If truth be told, it did not take “a few years” for the Jews to inflict “unbelievable levels of persecution” on the indigenous people of Mandate Palestine; the persecution began in earnest in 1939 against the British, the British Mandate Government established in 1922 by the League of Nations to maintain order and peace in Palestine. The Zionists undertook “a war against the British Mandate Government, its Police and Soldiers” while it lobbied and subverted the MP’s in Westminster with propaganda and money.
David Ward MP: “Having visited Auschwitz twice – once with my family and once with local schools – I am saddened that the Jews, who suffered unbelievable levels of persecution during the Holocaust, could within a few years of liberation from the death camps be inflicting atrocities on Palestinians in the new State of Israel and continue to do so on a daily basis in the West Bank and Gaza.”
Can you imagine two American politician race to do a “one-upsmanship on who is more pro-China?” Of course you can’t because this will never happen. But why is it OK if politicians are pro-Israel? Have the Americans lost their minds? How do they allow Israel Firster’s so called American politicians and policy makers to declare their loyalty to a foreign state and can be counted on to put interests of Israel in front of America’s?
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!
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.
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.
Israel leaders are signalling the need for Zionism to pre-empt any possible international pressure for withdrawal by going ahead with annexation without too much further delay. If necessary, a final ethnic cleansing by military means. This would see Zionism resorting to its tried and tested way of defying international law. Effectively Israel’s leaders say to the world: “We know we should not have done this, but we’ve done it. What are you going to do about it?” On the evidence of history to date Zionism knows the answer to that question, “Nothing.”
Haneen Zoabi is insisting that the Israeli State cease identifying itself with the interest of a single constituency and start representing the interests of the nation as a whole. What this is all about, she says, are “the values, the humanistic, universalistic values of freedom, of equality, of justice.” But there is nothing “universalistic” about Zionism and so, for her efforts, she is castigated and threatened. Such is the state that Zionism has built.
Netanyahu threat, “we destroyed almost all of their long-range rockets. But I’m telling you that the IDF is preparing to strike a still-heavier blow. Our account with Hamas is not closed.”
Hunting Nazi’s business has been slow for the rich Zionist Simon Wiesenthal Center, so a new scheme had to be developed … they created new enemies. Among those ‘cited’ was our esteemed associate Carlos Latuff.
The Palestinian Authority’s role and influence on anti-Israel advocacy is limited. “More than anything,” contends the study, “the conduct of these bodies reflects the anti-Israel advocacy campaign’s absolute failure to unify organizations and activists in this context around a single, coherent, official message.”
Alan Hart: What is it in particular that you think they need to be “saved” from?
President Obama: (The president smiled). The short answer is Netanyahu, those to the right of him and the Zionist colonial ideology they represent. The long answer has to take account of this fact. If Israel continues on its present course, gobbling up more and more of the land and water resources of the occupied West Bank, there will come a time when the Palestinians of Greater Israel will outnumber its Jews. They and their leaders will then have a choice of three options.
Mr. President, it is shocking, bewildering, incredulous, and tragically disappointing that American citizens should have to resort to a petition asking you to serve America’s national interest by nominating the incredibly qualified Senator Chuck Hagel for Secretary of Defense and, for once, stand up to Israel and its Jewish cabal and lobbies, such as AIPAC, ADL, and the American Jewish Committee, who are smearing and assaulting an honorable American to pressure you to withdraw him from consideration as has been reported in Israel.
Obama’s decision, expected very soon, about whether or not to nominate Hagel will give us the first significant indication since his re-election of whether or not he is going to continue to dance to Zionism’s tune or, as Hagel might put it, continue to be intimidated by its lobby.
