The Middle East


Israel’s Nuclear Weapons

Israel possesses a sizable nuclear arsenal but no one really knows how big that arsenal is.  In 2008, President Jimmy Carter said that Israel probably has a minimum of 150 weapons in stock ready to use if the direst circumstances warrant it.  Six years later, the former President revised that estimate and put the figure in the 300 range, which based on Carter’s calculations would mean that Israel doubled its arsenal from the 2008-2014 time-period. The truth is Israel wants to control the Middle East and it can only do that if it is the only country in the Middle East which has Nuclear weapons and that’s why it puts pressure on other countries to stop Iran from having a nuclear arsenal.  Again this is just lies because Iran only wants to have a cheaper form of energy, nuclear energy.

How is a terrorist state like Israel allowed to have Nuclear weapons anyway?  In the 1950s and early 1960s, the Israeli Government repeatedly lied to the U.S and its Allies about requests for information on possible weapons development.  Israel said its nuclear research plant at Dimona was a ‘metallurgic research installation’ which was a lie.  Foreign minister Shimon Peres assured President John F. Kennedy in a 1963 meeting in the Oval Office that Israel would “not introduce nuclear weapons to the Middle East. Israel lied about its Nuclear weapons program and the U.S and Britain turned a blind eye.  But now Israel says Iran is lying about their nuclear research and forces the world to impose sanctions on Iran. Yet Israel resists any attempts by international bodies to inspect its own nuclear facilities and Israel is one of the few countries who has nuclear weapons who refuses to sign up to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

An agreement between Iran and China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States, and Germany was finally signed in 2015 and it appears that Iran will continue its nuclear program for peaceful purposes, which it has always stated was its intent.  This agreement was welcomed throughout most of the world, with the most notable exceptions being Israel who have always throughout history suspects that someone wants to annihilate them.  President Obama might well of signed this nuclear treaty with Iran against Israel’s wishes but I would not trust either Hilary Clinton or Donald Trump to keep this treaty as both of them are Pro Israel and would both jump at the chance to start a war with Iran.

But Israel is an apartheid nation, committing ongoing genocide against the Palestinians and the U.S is the only country to have used Nuclear weapons which killed over 200,000 people, so who are they to decide who or who should not have nuclear weapons.

Israel has such a grip on the American government and Congress that you can bet that Israel will try its hardest with propaganda and lies to demonise Iran and its leaders and then they will try and start a war against Iran with America’s help of course because Israel cannot defeat Iran on its own.  Israel will have to use American and British Christian soldiers to defeat Iran as it did in Iraq. 

Israel wants total control of the Middle East and it doesn’t care how many human beings will have to die to get it.  


The Lies about Iran's Ahmadinejad’s ‘Israel’ Quote

Across the world, a dangerous rumor has spread that could have catastrophic implications. According to legend, Iran’s President has threatened to destroy Israel, or, to quote the misquote, “Israel must be wiped off the map”. Contrary to popular belief, this statement was never made, as the following article will prove.

On Tuesday, October 25th, 2005 at the Ministry of Interior conference hall in Tehran, newly elected Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad delivered a speech at a program, reportedly attended by thousands, titled “The World Without Zionism”. Large posters surrounding him displayed this title prominently in English, obviously for the benefit of the international press. Below the poster’s title was a slick graphic depicting an hour glass containing planet Earth at its top. Two small round orbs representing the United States and Israel are shown falling through the hour glass’ narrow neck and crashing to the bottom.

Before we get to the infamous remark, it’s important to note that the “quote” in question was itself a quote— they are the words of the late Ayatollah Khomeini, the father of the Islamic Revolution. Although he quoted Khomeini to affirm his own position on Zionism, the actual words belong to Khomeini and not Ahmadinejad. Thus, Ahmadinejad has essentially been credited (or blamed) for a quote that is not only unoriginal, but represents a viewpoint already in place well before he ever took office

The Actual Quote

So what did Ahmadinejad actually say? To quote his exact words in farsi:

“Imam ghoft een rezhim-e ishghalgar-e qods bayad az safheh-ye ruzgar mahv shavad.”

That passage will mean nothing to most people, but one word might ring a bell: rezhim-e. It is the word “Regime”, pronounced just like the English word with an extra “eh” sound at the end. Ahmadinejad did not refer to Israel the country or Israel the land mass, but the Israeli regime. This is a vastly significant distinction, as one cannot wipe aregime off the map. Ahmadinejad does not even refer to Israel by name, he instead uses the specific phrase “rezhim-e ishghalgar-e qods” (regime occupying Jerusalem).

So this raises the question.. what exactly did he want “wiped from the map”? The answer is: nothing. That’s because the word “map” was never used. The Persian word for map, “nagsheh”, is not contained anywhere in his original farsi quote, or, for that matter, anywhere in his entire speech. Nor was the western phrase “wipe out” ever said. Yet we are led to believe that Iran’s President threatened to “wipe Israel off the map”, despite never having uttered the words “map”, “wipe out” or even “Israel”

The full quote translated directly to English:

“The Imam said this regime occupying Jerusalem must vanish from the page of time”.

Word by word translation:

Imam (Khomeini) ghoft (said) een (this) rezhim-e (regime) ishghalgar-e (occupying) qods (Jerusalem) bayad (must) az safheh-ye ruzgar (from page of time) mahv shavad (vanish from)

While the false “wiped off the map” extract has been repeated infinitely without verification, Ahmadinejad’s actual speech itself has been almost entirely ignored. Given the importance placed on the “map” comment, it would be sensible to present his words in their full context to get a fuller understanding of his position. In fact, by looking at the entire speech, there is a clear, logical trajectory leading up to his call for a “world without Zionism”. One may disagree with his reasoning, but critical appraisals are infeasible without first knowing what that reasoning is.

In his speech, Ahmadinejad declares that Zionism is the West’s apparatus of political oppression against Muslims. He says the “Zionist regime” was imposed on the Islamic world as a strategic bridgehead to ensure domination of the region and its assets. Palestine, he insists, is the frontline of the Islamic world’s struggle with American hegemony, and its fate will have repercussions for the entire Middle East.

Ahmadinejad acknowledges that the removal of America’s powerful grip on the region via the Zionists may seem unimaginable to some, but reminds the audience that, as Khomeini predicted, other seemingly invincible empires have disappeared and now only exist in history books.

In the first and third examples, Ahmadinejad prefaces their mention with Khomeini’s own words foretelling that individual regime’s demise. He concludes by referring to Khomeini’s unfulfilled wish: “The Imam said this regime occupying Jerusalem must vanish from the page of time. This statement is very wise”. This is the passage that has been isolated, twisted and distorted so famously. By measure of comparison, Ahmadinejad would seem to be calling for regime change, not war.

The Reaction

The mistranslated “wiped off the map” quote attributed to Iran’s President has been spread worldwide, repeated thousands of times in international media, and prompted the denouncements of numerous world leaders. Virtually every major and minor media outlet has published or broadcast this false statement to the masses. Big news agencies such as The Associated Press and Reuters refer to the misquote, literally, on an almost daily basis.

Following news of Iran’s remark, condemnation was swift. British Prime Minister Tony Blair expressed “revulsion” and implied that it might be necessary to attack Iran. U.N. chief Kofi Annan cancelled his scheduled trip to Iran due to the controversy. Ariel Sharon demanded that Iran be expelled from the United Nations for calling for Israel’s destruction. Shimon Peres, more than once, threatened to wipe Iran off the map. More recently, Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu, who has warned that Iran is “preparing another holocaust for the Jewish state” is calling for Ahmadinejad to be tried for war crimes for inciting genocide.

The artificial quote has also been subject to additional alterations. U.S. officials and media often take the liberty of dropping the “map” reference altogether, replacing it with the more acutely threatening phrase “wipe Israel off the face of the earth”. Newspaper and magazine articles dutifully report Ahmadinejad has “called for the destruction of Israel”, as do senior officials in the United States government.

President George W. Bush said the comments represented a “specific threat” to destroy Israel. In a March 2006 speech in Cleveland, Bush vowed he would resort to war to protect Israel from Iran, because, “..the threat from Iran is, of course, their stated objective to destroy our strong ally Israel.” Former Presidential advisor Richard Clarke told Australian TV that Iran “talks openly about destroying Israel”, and insists, “The President of Iran has said repeatedly that he wants to wipe Israel off the face of the earth”. In an October 2006 interview with Amy Goodman, former UN Weapons Inspector Scott Ritter referred to Ahmadinejad as “the idiot that comes out and says really stupid, vile things, such as, ‘It is the goal of Iran to wipe Israel off the face of the earth’ “. The consensus is clear.

It is not amazing at all, the pick-and-choose approach of highlighting the misinterpreted remarks of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in October and ignoring this month’s remarks by Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, that “We have no problem with the world. We are not a threat whatsoever to the world, and the world knows it. We will never start a war. We have no intention of going to war with any state.”

The Israeli government has milked every drop of the spurious quote to its supposed advantage

Even if every media outlet in the world were to retract the mistranslated quote tomorrow, the major damage has already been done, providing the groundwork for the next phase of disinformation: complete character demonization. Ahmadinejad, we are told, is the next Hitler, a grave threat to world peace who wants to bring about a new Holocaust. According to some detractors, he not only wants to destroy Israel, but after that, he will nuke America, and then Europe! 

Of course Saddam Hussein was the new Hitler when they wanted to remove him and then Gaddafi was.  The evil empire of America\NATO and Israel use the same formulae to destroy countries and change their leaders and that is to demonise the leader with Propaganda in their controlled mainstream media.

People should look at the evidence to what a country has done in the past. How many countries has Iran dropped bombs on in the last 60 years, the answer is none and how many countries has America dropped bombs on since WW2 and the answer is 33.






The Power of Israel in the United States

James Petras is Professor Emeritus of Sociology at Binghamton University, New York. He's a noted academic figure on the US Left and a well-respected Latin American expert and long-time chronicler of the region's popular struggles.

Petras' powerful new book is titled The Power of Israel in the United States. It's a work of epic writing and essential reading documenting the enormous influence of the Jewish Lobby on US policy in the Middle East. It focuses like a laser to assure that policy conforms to Israel's long-term goal for regional hegemony.

Petras shows how the Jewish Lobby’s are able to assure the full and unconditional US support for all elements of Israel's agenda going back decades even when that agenda harms our interests such as the unwinnable war in Iraq, any future one against Iran if it's undertaken, and the appalling and brutal subjugation and colonization of the Palestinian people that serves no US interest whatever. In spite of it, the Lobby is able to get the US to go along with Israel unconditionally with no serious opposition to it tolerated.

Petras explains the root of the Lobby's power lies in the high proportion of Jewish families who are among the wealthiest and most influential ones in the country. He cites Forbes magazine that reported 25 - 
30% of the wealthiest families here are Jewish despite the small percentage of Jews in the population overall. They include billionaires with enormous influence, and along with all others comprising the Jewish Lobby, have created a "tyranny of Israel over the US" with consequences grave enough to threaten world peace and stability, the global economy, and the very future of democracy in this country. 

Because of the Lobby's power, Petras reports, the US has unconditionally supported Israel's wars of aggression since 1967. It's influence also led to the US Gulf war in 1991 and the second Iraq war begun in 
2003, now raging out of control and seen by some noted analysts as unwinnable and causing potential irreparable economic and political harm to the nation. Nonetheless, it persists with no plan agreed on to end it. The Lobby also guaranteed this country's unconditional support for Israel's illegal wars of aggression against Lebanon and Palestine with all the devastation they caused and the horrendous consequences from them unresolved. The Palestinian conflict still rages under the radar, and the status in Lebanon hangs by a hair trigger ready to erupt again any time Israel decides to resume hostilities. But inflaming the Middle East powder keg to a near boiling point is the strong possibility the US and/or Israel will attack Iran because Israel wants it and the Jewish Lobby put its powerful support behind it.

Today the situation in the Middle East is so dire, Petras reports a large majority of Europeans and a growing number of Americans believe Israel is the greatest of all threats to world peace and stability. Nonetheless, the American administration, in acquiescence to the Lobby, has "bludgeoned" its European partners to go along with its uncompromising support for the Jewish state despite all the obvious perils from it.

In this country, open debate is stifled, public figures and academics daring to air one truthfully are pilloried, ridiculed, called anti-semitic and even threatened, and no serious dissent is ever tolerated in the corporate-run media or their funded and controlled so-called public radio or PBS parts of it.

No publication is more servile to, supportive of, or more influential than the nation's so-called "paper of record" publishing "All the News That's Fit to Print" - the New York Times. It's important because the stories it features prominently resonate around the country and the world. This dominant newspaper pledges unconditional support and fealty to the state of Israel whatever it does. The rest of the major media go along unquestioningly putting out regular one-sided pro-Israel uber alles propaganda with no opposition voices allowed to represent other points of view. We call that a free press - but only for those who own one. The state of the corporate-controlled media in this country is now so pathetic that Reporters Sans Frontieres (Reporters without Borders - for press freedom) just ranked the US 53rd in the world in press freedom behind countries like Benin, Namibia, Jamaica, France and Bolivia.

Petras begins with a discussion of who fabricated the lies about Iraq's threat to our security and why. He mentions two competing channels of policy makers and advisors - the long-in-place formal structure of career military and civilian professionals in the Pentagon and State Department and a parallel one Bush administration neocons set up for this one purpose in the Pentagon, staffed by political appointees, and called the Office of Special Plans (OSP). It was the OSP's job to cook the books, come up with the idea of weapons of mass destruction while ignoring the clear evidence to the contrary and contrive a fraudulent case for war against Iraq. The people in it were those in Donald Rumsfeld's and Paul Wolfowitz's chain of command and were closely connected to a number of influential neoconservative and pro-Israel organizations. They planned a war agenda based on lies because Israel wanted it for its security and hegemony in the region - beginning with the overthrow of Saddam Hussein followed by regime change in Syria, Lebanon, Iran and even Saudi Arabia.

Petras points out, contrary to popular belief, this war happened largely due to the efforts of the Jewish Lobby representing the interests of Israel. Big Oil opposed the idea because it feared attacking Iraq would jeopardize its business prospects with other oil-producing states in the region. Still, Israel and the Jewish Lobby got their war, and aside from the gain from high oil prices, Big Oil may end up a longer-term loser from it. US oil interests always prefer stability and normal relationships with countries where they operate or wish to and were quite comfortable dealing with Saddam Hussein without wanting to risk a war that might upset an otherwise profitable arrangement.

Petras observes there's never a public discussion allowed about that relationship in the mainstream nor will there ever be any, especially any hint the US attacked Iraq in service to Israel. There should be plenty of it though because the Iraq and Afghanistan wars have enraged hundreds of millions of Muslims and all people of conscience worldwide. They've caused the US to be seen as a pariah state and George Bush as a dangerous and morally depraved president of a failed administration. He and those closest to him like Richard Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld are reviled around the world and increasingly here at home as witnessed by the many thousands who took to the streets on October 5 in over 200 US cities on The World Can't Wait Day - Drive out the Bush Regime. The cost of Bush's wars far exceed any possible future benefits from them, our security has been jeopardized, the nation's status has been compromised, and some analysts believe the total dollar cost of the Iraq adventure may eventually top $2 trillion - an amount extremely harmful to the nation's economy.

The only clear beneficiary of the Bush war agenda is Israel. It removed its main adversary in the region and cut off the political and economic support it gave the Palestinians. Petras points out that Iraq along with Iran and Syria comprised the core resistance to Israel's expansionist plans to crush the Palestinians

(one down, two to go), ethnically cleanse them from their homeland and seize their land as one part of a long-term goal for a greater Israel and unchallengeable dominance in the region. Israel is the only country in the world with undeclared borders. It's kept that status to give itself maximum latitude to annex all the territory it can toward the goal of a greater "Eretz Israel" Zionists want that includes the ancient lands of "Judea" and "Summaria," the West Bank biblical parts of Israel Palestinians claim as their homeland.

With US help, Israel removed one threat to its plan for regional supremacy, but it still faces determined resistance from the Palestinians in spite of having crushed its democratically elected Hamas government. It also faces a resilient Hezbollah in Lebanon that humiliated the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) in the summer war there as well as opposition from Iran and Syria. In addition, there's internal opposition within Israel over its war and colonization agenda because of its enormous cost plus the added insecurity it causes. It's resulted in a level of out-migration now exceeding new arrivals as well as an erosion of the nation's social programs because the state needs the resources for its aggression and annexation agenda. It's much like what's happening under the Bush administration where the people pay the price for imperial wars abroad and the moral decay and authoritarianism at home.

Obstacles and setbacks aside, Israel has pursued its goal to "democratize" the region through a belligerent policy of neutralizing its enemies in it by force. The plan they crafted is for a series of wars with its US ally taking the lead and the eventual goal of joint US - Israeli control over the entire region. Making it work depends on getting US administrations to go along, which so far hasn't been a problem and has never been easier with the Bush administration in power followed by Obama and the high-level pro-Zionist officials in it with long-standing ties to Israel. They have the most important policy-making positions in government or are closely associated with the ones who do. These officials have a history of dedication to Israel's interests even when they conflict with those here at home. They're in the administration, the Congress as well as in the most influential Jewish organizations and lobbying groups like the Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations, the Anti-Defamation League and what some observers believe is the single most powerful lobby in Washington - AIPAC.

Committed support for Israel also comes from the "Jewish Diaspora" that comprises thousands of dedicated activists here - doctors, dentists, philanthropists, key individuals on Wall Street, the major banks and the Federal Reserve and other key segments of business, the major media, the clergy and academics and journalists given special prominence because of their willingness to corrupt their integrity in return for the handsome benefits they get for their unconditional public support and contrived rationalizations for the US -Israeli agenda. This kind of influence and support has made Israel by far the largest recipient in the world of US financial aid that amounts upfront to about $3 billion a year with more forthcoming any time as needed in added funding, weapons transfers and large low or no-interest loans that may never have to be repaid.

Israel also gets the unheard of advantage of receiving the latest and most advanced US arms and technology, unrestricted US market access for its products and services, free entry of its immigrants, unconditional support for its aggressive wars and colonization of the Palestinians and South Lebanese, and guaranteed US vetoes in the Security Council against all UN resolutions unfavourable to its interests. It's also able to get prominent Washington officials and the dominant corporate-run and funded media to label all criticism of Israel anti-semitic and freely uses this ruse whenever it serves its purpose. Israel is allowed to get away with its intelligence operations here as well including its covert penetration of military bases, the FBI, IRS, INS, EPA and many other government agencies.

All this proves beyond doubt that it is Israel and the Jewish Lobbies in the USA that controls America. Israel uses American taxes and American soldiers to squash its enemies in the Middle East.

Petras points out that none of this deters powerful supporters of Israel who raise billions of dollars to support the country's war machine and finance its colonization of annexed Palestinian land plus the Golan Heights (with its invaluable water resources) seized and never returned to Syria after the 1967 war. Israel's economy is not self-sufficient, and without this aid, it would have to make unacceptable cuts in social services, reduce its military budget and curtail its expansionary plans. With it, plus the $3 billion a year direct US contribution and lots more help, US taxpayers (like it or not) have the burden of funding Israel's belligerence and colonization agenda.

Petras reports the power of the ZPC was evident in the run-up to the Iraq war and the Gulf war before it in

1991. Going back to the GHW Bush administration, the US wanted regime change in Iraq, but that decision was heavily influenced by the ZPC that considered Saddam a mortal enemy of Israel who had to be removed. He managed to survive through the 1990s despite our efforts to destabilize the country and bring it to its knees. But once the GW Bush administration neocons took over in 2001, the ugly business of war planning and occupation took hold to complete what the Gulf war left unfinished, and powerful Zionists (like Paul Wolfowitz and Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman - the senator from AIPAC) in key policy-making positions invented the threat to bring it about in March, 2003 - all based on lies, deceit and subservience to Israel's imperial agenda.

The US military finally removed Saddam and conducted a scorched-earth campaign to destroy Iraqi society, its infrastructure and historical treasures to "dismantle the secular state (and) turn the country in a desert kingdom - a loose collection of at least three 'tribal' client mini-states based on ethnicities, religious-tribal loyalties (and no viable threat against) Israeli expansionism, particularly in Northern Iraq." The effort to do this is now underway after the Iraq puppet parliament's passage of its federalism bill to take effect in 18 months that will effectively divide the country into the three US-ordered, designed and supposedly more easily governed parts it wants.

It's unlikely this can work, but it's clearer than ever now what the human cost of the war has been for Iraqis. It caused the violent deaths of about 655,000 of them attributable to the war according to a shocking new study published by the noted Lancet British medical journal which updated their two earlier ones done after March, 2003.

But Petras reports it's even worse than that as the expose of torture in Iraq revealed a highly organized network of US and Israeli assassins worldwide. They operate as international death squads engaged in "killing, kidnapping and torturing 'suspects' and sympathizers of resistance movements." Petras calls this a US-sponsored "Murder Incorporated" that's composed of Army Special Forces, Navy Seals and a DELTA force operating in a Special Agency Program

(SAP). It follows the same practices long engaged in by Israel's Institute for Intelligence and Special Operations known as the Mossad, and its aim is to remove all opposition by whatever extralegal methods it chooses while ignoring international law. It then justifies this activity at the highest levels of government as a matter of policy.

Petras further points to the UN's International Leadership report on the destruction of civilian and military infrastructure in Iraq (much like what Israel did in the OPT discussed below). It showed "84% of Iraq's higher learning institutions have been burnt, looted or destroyed." Archeological museums and historic sites, libraries and archives have also been plundered, and targeted assassinations have been carried out against academics, other teachers, senior military personnel, journalists and other professionals including doctors. In addition, there are random or targeted daily terror killings by US-directed "Salvador option" death squads as well as thousands of kidnappings and other systematic horrors making life intolerable for most everyone in the country outside the four square kilometer fortress-like Green Zone HQ in central Baghdad for "coalition" officials and the puppet "Iraq interim government."

It's all part of Washington's design to destroy the country's cultural identity as an Arab state, separate its oil resources from any large population base, and divide the nation into more easily governed parts just the way it was done in the breakup of Yugoslavia in the 1990s. It's now been reported that longtime Bush family consigliere James Baker, co-chairing an Iraq Study Group, will formerly propose the kind of plan the Iraq puppet government just passed putting a quasi-official US imprimatur on it as part of a US - Israeli divide and conquer strategy that may not be as easy to pull off as as the one in the former Yugoslavia or in the simple north - south divisions of Korea and Vietnam after WW II.

What's happening today in Iraq and Palestine is so outrageous and chaotic, Petras refers to a "House of Horrors" in both countries with the Zionist militarists at the Pentagon and their Israeli counterparts in charge of their respective "Horror Shows....under the big tent of a 'Mid-East Democratic Reform Initiative.' " This is the modus operandi of empire building and colonization - blast and tear a nation to shreds so it can never again exist as it once did. Then terrorize the people into submission and kill off all the ones who resist. It's a barbaric thumb in the eye to humanity, but this is the way rogue empires do things, especially when they're too powerful to challenge.

The US-led killing machine is in full operation in Iraq, and so is the Israeli one in the OPT. Petras calls the one there "Israel's Final Solution" or the "Palestinian Holocaust," and it's focal point is in Gaza which even unoccupied is the world's largest open-air prison for its 1.45 million people in the most densely populated space of its size in the world. Today the Strip and the West Bank are Israeli-directed killing fields targeting Palestinian civilians helpless to stop it beyond their courageous acts of desperation with crude weapons and their bodies against tanks, F-16s, helicopter gunships, and illegal and immoral terror weapons like white phosphorus bombs and shells, cluster bombs that never stop killing and maiming, and experimental new weapons that don't have publicly-known names yet.

The Palestinian Centre for Human Rights (PCHR) documented it all including the devastation of the past six years. Overall it created a state of mass-immiseration for the Palestinian people in Gaza and the West Bank:

-- essential infrastructure affecting power, clean water and sanitation destroyed

-- mobility restricted or denied

-- imposition of an embargo threatening the collapse of an already weak economy creating unemployment up to

80% of the population

-- hostile incursions into the OPT, daily killings, and frequent extra-judicial assassinations

-- home and property demolitions

-- mass arbitrary arrests, administrative detentions of thousands of Palestinians without charge, and the systematic use of torture on those held including against women and children

-- the destruction of a viable Hamas-led Palestinian Authority (PA) through imprisonments of its democratically elected members held without charge or on contrived ones against them as well as the destruction of its civil and security facilities

All this and much more has been done (as in Iraq) to destroy the cultural identity and very existence of the Palestinian people to prevent them from ever having a viable independent state of their own as well as force a mass-Palestinian exodus to other Arab states willing to help them escape their intolerable situation in the OPT.

For Israel, this is part of its state policy of ethnic cleansing by slow-motion genocide.

It's to fulfill the intent of what former Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meier meant by her racist comment that "There are no Palestinians" and what Prime Minister David Ben Gurion earlier said after Israel brutally expelled the Palestinians from their homes and land in the 1948 war establishing the state of Israel: "We have come and we have stolen their country....We must do everything to insure they (the Palestinians) never do return....(and 10 years earlier had written his son) We will expel the Arabs and take their places....with the force at our disposal." He and his successors planned to include all the land of biblical Eretz Israel (the land of Israel) within the final fixed borders of a greater Israeli state whenever they're finally declared. The US unconditionally supports Israel's plan to do this as well as its policies of plunder and exploitation, but as Petras explains: "No one in their right mind can claim that the Israeli assault on Gaza advances US policies, interests or US imperial power." It doesn't matter because the power of the Jewish Lobby got the full support of the Bush administration for it anyway as well as the near unanimity for it in the Congress.

It now looks like the only lesson the US and Israel learned from past failure is to press on with a new adventure. It appears the likely prime target is the Islamic Republic of Iran, as ill-advised as it will be to attack it. Petras explains that "Israel's political and military leadership have repeatedly and openly declared (their intention) to attack Iran in the immediate future." And once again it looks like the power of the Jewish Lobby in the US has the U.S administration thinking the same way to help its Israeli partner free itself from another "irritant" in the region that stands in the way of both countries' imperial aims. Petras calls Israel's Iran-directed war preparations "the greatest immediate threat to world peace and political stability (today)." It's hard to disagree.

Zionism, its agenda of aggressive wars and colonization, and the power of the Jewish Lobby to assure Israel gets the full and unconditional support of every US administration regardless of whether what it does serves the interests of America. That Lobby power reached its apogee and full fruition with the ascent of the Bush administration neocons that effectively pledge their fealty to the rulers of the Israeli state and prove Ariel Sharon may have been right when he once arrogantly boasted about his relationship with George Bush saying: "We have the US under our control."


Palestine

Once upon a time there was a place called Palestine, a land of milk & honey written about in a book called The Bible. This ended in 1948 when Ben-Gurion declared the creation of the State of Israel. Palestine was then flooded with Jews from Europe, later USA and other countries. These immigrants kicked the Palestinians out of their homes, off their farms and out of Palestine. Now the Palestinians are imprisoned in The Gaza Strip, a foul strip of desert between Israel & Egypt, or have been forced out to the west of The River Jordan. However even that is not enough for the Israelis, they keep expanding into the West Bank territory and creating settlements there and every couple of years the Israelis have a turkey shoot, except it's not turkeys they're shooting its defenceless women and children mostly.

Let’s look at the map below and see how 1.5 million Palestinians have been squeezed into a small bit of land.  Now Adolf Hitler did far less than this in trying to recover land from Poland which had been stolen from Germany after World War 1.  World War 2 was started because of this.  Yet no one has come to the aid of the Palestinians were Genocide has been carried out against them by Israel.  Since 1948 750,000 Palestinians have been forced from their lands and homes by Israel were they had lived for centuries and many of them slaughtered and raped along the way.  The western leaders in America, Britain and France etc. don’t even condemn this because they are the puppets of Rothschild and the Israeli Zionists.  If any other country in the world did this to a neighbouring country it would not be allowed but Israel is allowed to get away with it, Why?  Saddam Hussein went into Kuwait in 1990 and immediately America sent in its troops to remove him, is Israel going into Palestine any different, no it is not.

Before anyone starts saying well ‘the Jews lived there 2,000 years ago they are just reclaiming their homeland’. That is nonsense.  Does that mean Germany can go in and reclaim Prussia from Poland and Russia because it was theirs 70 years ago or can Argentine go and reclaim the Falklands because it was theirs 200 years ago?  No that is nonsense.  People really need to do some research because 80% of the Jews in this world do not have their roots in the Middle East.  80% of the Jews in this world are descended from the Khazarian Empire and are known as Ashkenazi Jews. In the 7th century King Bulan of Khazar converted the empire from a form of Pagan worship to Judaism.  The Khazarian Empire encompassed Poland, Bulgaria, Romania and Hungary.

Prime Minister David Ben Gurion earlier said after Israel brutally expelled the Palestinians from their homes and land in the 1948 war establishing the state of Israel: "We have come and we have stolen their country....We must do everything to insure they (the Palestinians) never do return”.

Eran Elhaik (Jewish) has a doctorate in molecular evolution from the University of Houston and he produced a research article titled “The Missing Link of Jewish European Ancestry: Contrasting the Rhineland and the Khazarian Hypotheses,” in the online journal Genome Biology and Evolution.

Elhaik says he has proved that Ashkenazi Jews’ roots lie in the Caucasus — a region at the border of Europe and Asia that lies between the Black and Caspian seas — not in the Middle East. They are descendants, he argues, of the Khazars, a Turkic people who lived in one of the largest medieval states in Eurasia and then migrated to Eastern Europe in the 12th and 13th centuries.

Prof. Shlomo Sand of Tel Aviv University published “The Invention of the Jewish People” in 2008 in which he says “The Jews living elsewhere are mainly the descendants of converted peoples. Ashkenazi Jews (Jews in Eastern Europe) are mainly descendants of Khazars”

There are hundreds of books {most of which are Jewish Encyclopedias and history books} available for study, which prove that over 90% of the Jews of the world are not a Semitic people, but few people other than historians ever bother to read them.

Here is an excerpt from two of them:

Encyclopedia Americana (1985): "Ashkenazim, the Ashkenazim are the Jews whose ancestors lived in German lands...it was among Ashkenazi Jews that the idea of political Zionism emerged, leading ultimately to the establishment of the state of Israel...In the late 1960s, Ashkenazi Jews numbered some 11 million, about 84 percent of the world Jewish population."

The American People's Encyclopedia for 1954 at 15-292 records the following in reference to the Khazars: "In the year 740 A.D. the Khazars were officially converted to Judaism. A century later they were crushed by the incoming Slavic-speaking people and were scattered over central Europe where they were known as Jews. It is from this grouping that most German, Polish and Hungarian Jews are descended, and they likewise make up a considerable part of that population now found in America. The term Aschenazim is applied to this round-headed, dark-complexioned division.

Watch the video below of David Icke's research into were the Jews realy originated from.




Let us look at some UN statistics

94% — Percentage of Palestine inhabited by Palestinians in 1946.

15% — Percentage of Palestine inhabited by Palestinians today.

5 million — Number of Palestinians currently living in foreign refugee camps.

8,701 — Number of Palestinians killed by Israelis since 2000.

1,138 — Number of Israelis killed by Palestinians since 2000.

8:1 — Ratio of Palestinian-Israeli deaths since 2000

1,772 — Number of Palestinian children killed by Israelis since 2000.

93 — Number of Israeli children killed by Palestinians since 2000.

19:1 — Ratio of Palestinian-Israeli child deaths since 2000

$3 billion — Average annual US aid to Israel over the past 20 years.

25% — Percentage of the entire annual US foreign aid budget that goes to Israel

5th Century: Jews constituted 10-15 percent of the population of Palestine.

1850: Jews constituted 4 percent of the population of Palestine.

1917: At the end of World War One, Palestine was among several former Ottoman Arab territories occupied by Britain. Jews constituted 11 percent of the population of Palestine with almost all of the Jewish population arriving during the previous 40 years as part of the European Zionist movement that sought to establish a Jewish state. British Foreign Secretary Arthur James Balfour issued a declaration stating, “His Majesty’s government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object.”

1922: Palestine was officially placed under the administration of Britain according to a mandate issued by the League of Nations. Under the British Mandate, the Jewish population in Palestine increased from 11 percent to 32 percent in 1948.

1939-1947: Armed Jewish groups carried out a violent insurgency against the British in an effort to pressure the ruling authority to fulfil the Balfour Declaration and establish a Jewish state.

The start of the atrocities against the Palestinians started on April 9, 1948 when commandos of the Irgun (headed by Menachem Begin, future prime minister) and the Stern Gang attacked Deir Yassin, a village with about 750 Palestinian residents. How come a murderer ends up being Prime Minister?  In all over 100 men, women, and children were systematically murdered. Fifty-three orphaned children were literally dumped near the Old City, where they were found by Miss Hind Husseini and she brought them to her home, which was to become the Dar El-Tifl El-Arabi orphanage.  




Here is another example to show that Israel are the real terrorists.

In 1994, on the day of the Jewish hate-festival of Purim, an orthodox Jew named
Baruch Goldstein walked into a crowded mosque in Hebron, West Bank, with an automatic

assault rifle, locked the door behind him and opened fire. As they were kneeling in prayer,

Goldstein shot his victims in the back with his army assault rifle until he was finally subdued and

killed by survivors. When the murderous rampage was finished, 29 Palestinian Muslims had

succumbed to Goldstein’s bullets; 125 others were seriously wounded. Israeli soldiers —

possibly possessing foreknowledge of the attack — quickly amassed outside the mosque and

shot dead a number of Palestinians fleeing Goldstein’s onslaught. Rioting ensued shortly

thereafter, and another 19 Palestinians were murdered by Israeli soldiers within 48 hours.

Astonishingly, the mass murderer Baruch Goldstein is hailed as a hero by many Jews in Israel and abroad to this very day.


In 1987, Israel leader Netanyahu published a book titled “Terrorism: How the West Can Win” containing a number of essays and transcribed speeches from like-minded Jewish-Zionist gangsters which outlined a political blueprint for a global campaign — led by the “Western democracies” — of relentless preemptive warfare against anyone that the Jewish supremacists label as “terrorists.” A “terrorist” is Zionist code-speak for non-Jews who resist Jewish terrorism, Zionist supremacy and the “Greater Israel” project. If you resist the Jewish theft of your land, you’re a “terrorist.” If you resist the Jewish takeover of your country, you’re a “terrorist.” If you resist the Jewish slaughter of your people, you’re a “terrorist.” If you resist the Jewish control of your media, government and banking system, you’re a “terrorist.” If you resist total Jewish supremacy, you’re a “terrorist.” This is what occurs when we let Jewish supremacists define terms for us. The sadistic Jewish policy of physically exterminating their enemies in the Middle East, under the flaccid veneer of “fighting terrorism,” became the USA’s official foreign policy after 9/11, as the attack was intended to accomplish.


In Britain, on Guy Fawkes Night, (Nov. 5th), there were more casualties from fireworks than there has been all year in Israel from Hamas rockets. In 2008 not one Israeli was killed by these Hamas rockets before the Israelis started killing the Palestinians. (If any Zionist wishes to correct that please send me a list of the deaths of Israelis due to these rockets.) This destruction and killing is nothing to do with Hamas fireworks, it is an attempt to destroy the civil infrastructure of Gaza. Look at the buildings destroyed, the interior ministry, police headquarters, mosques and a university. Several years ago they did the same with Fatah and in doing so created public support for Hamas which brought about the democratically elected Hamas government. 

Gaza is the world’s biggest prison camp. Israel controls the borders and all that is allowed in and out of this foul, barren desert strip. Recently they have been restricting food, medicine and fuel such that there is extensive hardship and malnutrition in Gaza. Now The Israelis seem to have decided it is simpler to kill the Palestinians with bombs & missiles provided for that purpose by USA. For the Israelis it is like shooting fish in a barrel. Perhaps Gaza should be re-named Auschwitz.  The Jews complain so much about how badly they were supposedly treated by Germany in the concentration camps during WW2 and yet look how they treat the Palestinians.

“Nothing here in America compares to the horrors of Palestine….Women are raped by Israeli military officials….Palestinian children are doused with gasoline and set on fire for the amusement of the IDF.” — Jonathan Azaziah, Mizrahi American Jew

In 2014 Israel launched Operation Protective Edge. One of Israel’s reasons for this attack against the Palestinians was the kidnapping and killing of three Israeli teenagers, which it blamed on Hamas.  However one week before two Palestinian youths were killed by the Israeli military.  The killing of the three Israeli teenagers received huge publicity in the media (well it would wouldn’t it, the western media is owned by the Jews) but the deaths of the Palestinian youths who died received no media coverage.  This is how the people of the western world are brainwashed by the Jews just as they were during World War 2. During this attack against the Palestinians some 2,205 Palestinians, including over 500 children, and 70 Israelis (64 of whom were soldiers) were killed. Thousands of Palestinians were wounded; over 18,000 of their homes were destroyed; some 470,000 were displaced; and large areas of Gaza were essentially razed to the ground.

The terrible murder of three Israeli youths has given the Israelis an excuse to continue their slaughter of Palestinians. They have neither produced nor cited evidence that Hamas was involved. (Israel now admits they weren't killed by Hamas.)

Following this, Israelis seized a Palestinian youth and killed him by burning him alive.  A court determined that Ben David and the two minors snatched Mohammed Abu Khdeir off an east Jerusalem sidewalk in July 2014 and burned him alive in a forest west of the city.

In the aftermath of Protective Edge, a commission appointed by the UN Human Rights Council examined the available facts (Israel refused to cooperate) and found in many cases that war crimes may have been committed.

Let’s listen to one of the brave Israeli leaders speak hiding behind his desk.  Deputy Prime Minister Eli Yishai said, “We must blow Gaza back to the Middle Ages, destroying all the infrastructure including roads and water”.




July 2014 - The same old story, Israeli atrocities against Palestinians 

The terrible murder of three Israeli youths has given the Israelis an excuse to continue their slaughter of Palestinians. They have neither produced nor cited evidence that Hamas was involved. (Now, 1st Aug., the Israelis admit they weren't killed by Hamas.) Following this, Israelis seized a Palestinian youth and killed him by burning him alive.

Although Israel, US and a few other countries readily say Hamas is a terrorist organisation, it must be remembered that Hamas was the democratically elected government of Gaza, after Israel destabilised the government of Yasser Arafat.

In 22 days over New Year 2009 Israeli snipers and tanks killed 400 Palestinian children, (and 900 adults). What sort of people are these Israelis, snipers deliberately kill children and tank commanders fire shells into family apartments when they see people living there?

Information for people in Britain.
If I were to tell you that top British politicians were members of an Israeli lobbying group, you would probably not believe me. Check it out for yourself on Wikipedia,
Conservative Friends Israel
Labour Friends of Israel,
and you will see that David Cameron, William Hague, Tony Blair & Gordon Brown all are/were "Friends of Israel". Britain's foreign policy is determined by Israel.

In 2008, up to 27th Dec., the home-made rockets that Hamas fired into Israel killed no-one. In return the Israelis killed 400 children and 900 adults in Gaza. After the Israeli attacks, Hamas rockets killed 3 Israeli civilians. The Israelis shelled clearly designated UN schools sheltering civilians and used white phosphorus against civilians, both of these actions are war crimes. USA supplied, free, the aircraft, helicopter gunships, missiles, bombs and bullets for these attacks and block any international condemnation of Israel in UN.

People who are really evil are few and far between, and so it is with nations. By being evil I mean people or states who choose to indiscriminately kill, imprison, torture and inflict severe physical and mental pressures on others. An Example is Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia in the 1970's. There are states and organisations in Africa and one or two other places that are evil, they slaughter anyone that comes in their way as they try to gain their desires. 

And so it is with Israel and U.S.A. In order to gain land for themselves the Israelis have driven the Palestinians from Palestine, from their farms, from their homes and they kill the Palestinians who object. What sort of people are these Israelis, who, when seeing a child's face look out of a window, instead of raising their hand and giving it a friendly wave they raised their gun and blew the child's brains out. Or, if there was a family in the room a tank commander would swing around the tank's gun and blast the whole family, father, mother and children, into tattered body parts. This is not exaggeration, 400 children in Gaza were killed by the Israelis in a two week campaign. 

The U.S.A., whose presidents depend upon the votes and influence of Jews in New York who support Israel, have always been ready to give the Israelis the weapons to enable them pursue this evil. In effect US foreign policy is determined by Israel. To support the Israelis the US blocks any attempt in U.N. by other nations to stop or condemn this evil. 

The U.S.A. is evil in its own right. Its invasion of Iraq, which brought about the death of hundreds of thousands of Iraqis was nothing more than an attempt to gain control of Iraqi oil. The US government distorted its laws and ignored international laws to allow it to imprison and torture any Iraqi, anyone, they wished. It was the same in Vietnam, only then over 2 million Vietnamese died. 

Quite simply Israel and U.S.A. are evil just as Stalin and the Khmer Rouge were before them.


What started this? The Israelis, who have over 5,000 Palestinians & Lebanese held in prison camps, feel that it OK for them to devastate Gaza and Lebanon because Hamas has one Israeli prisoner and Hezbollah has two. I wondered if this was to be a smokescreen allowing the Israelis to bomb Iran, so far it hasn't been. I'm not much into countries having nuclear bombs but with such a belligerent Israel and USA who can blame Iran for wanting nuclear weapons to protect it's people. 

America is flying in more laser guided bombs, missiles and other weaponry as fast as Israel can use them. Sadly the USA/Israel Axis of Evil has been supported by the British Government which has allowed the aircraft carrying these shipments of bombs and missiles to refuel in UK. Even Bush's poodle Tony Blair has become a supporter of America's far right neo-cons. I see that Blair and now Cameron don't want a cease-fire, he wants the Israelis to have a more time to kill more Palestinians & Lebanese and to destroy more of the infrastructure before there is a cease-fire. I can not understand how British Members of Parliament who had humanitarian political attitudes in the 1980's have been so ready to support Bush's destruction and killings in the Middle East. I am ashamed of the British Government.




A History of Israel Terror against the Palestinians

This is some of the history of Israel’s blood-stained six-decade reign of terror against Palestinians. The list is long, way-incomplete, very disturbing, and shows what Palestinians have endured for over 60 years. Their ordeal continues in the West Bank and Gaza under siege, still attacked, and, as always, betrayed by the dominant media.

– Ayn al-Zaytun and nearby villages, May 1 – 4, 1948 – 27 Palestinians killed;

– Acre, May 18, 1948 – Israeli troops killed over 100 Palestinians;

– al-Tantura, May 22 – 23, 1948 – Israeli troops killed over 200 villagers, mostly unarmed young men shot in cold blood;

– on May 26, 1948, David Ben-Gurion formed the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) from the Haganah;

– Lydda, July 11 – 12, 1948 – the IDF killed several hundred civilians, including 80 machine-gunned inside the Dahmash mosque;

– Hula, Lebanon, October 24 – 29, 1948 – the IDF machine-gunned 50 villagers;

– al-Dawayima, October 29, 1948 – the IDF killed up to 200 villagers;

– Qibya, Jordan, October 14, 1953 – Ariel Sharon’s infamous Unit 101 killed 70 villagers;

– Gaza City, April 5, 1956 – IDF shelling killed 56 and wounded 193;

– Kafr Kassem, October 29, 1956 – the IDF killed about 50 men, women and children;

– the Suez War, October 29 – November 7, 1956 – the IDF executed about 273 Egyptian soldiers and civilians in cold blood;

– Rafah Refugee Camp, November 12, 1956 – the IDF slaughtered over 100 Palestinians;

– Nuqeibi, Syria, March 16 – 17, 1962 – IDF artillery and aircraft killed at least 30 unarmed villagers;

– Samu, Jordan, November 13, 1966 – the IDF destroyed 125 houses, a school, clinic and 15 houses in a nearby village killing 18 and wounded 54 in cold blood;

– the Six-Day War, June 5 – 11, 1967 – IDF forces preemptively and without cause attacked Egypt, Syria and Jordan; they massacred as many as 2000 helpless or captured Egyptian soldiers; killed about 340 Syrian villagers in the Golan Heights and displaced more than 300,000 Palestinians who fled to the Jordan River’s east bank along with others to Lebanon, Egypt and Syria;

– the USS Liberty incident, June 8, 1967 – Israeli forces attacked and killed 34 Americans and wounded 171 in international waters; a Department of Defense inquiry whitewashed it as a case of “mistaken identity” despite clear knowledge it was a willful attack on a US naval intelligence vessel;

– Rafah Refugee Camp, June 1967 – the IDF killed 23 Palestinians and buried them in a mass grave;

– following the Six Day War, June 1967, 56 Palestinians were shot in cold blood trying to cross the Jordan River to the West Bank;

– February 21, 1973, the IDF shot down Libya Airlines Flight 114 killing 106 passengers, including one American;

– Hebron, February 25, 1994 – Baruch Goldstein massacred 29 praying Palestinians;

– the 1982 Lebanon invasion and occupation; 18,000 Lebanese and Palestinians were killed, including 3000 massacred in the Sabra and Shatila refugee camps;

– Jenin, 2002 – the most infamous of numerous massacres during the Second Intifada; the IDF invaded the city and refugee camp; cut them off from outside help; destroyed hundreds of buildings; buried many alive in them under rubble; cut off power and water as well as food and other essential to life supplies; refused to allow in help, including medical aid; and killed and wounded dozens of Palestinian civilians; some accounts cite hundreds as Israeli forces swept up bodies and buried them to avoid an accurate count;

– the summer 2006 33-day (Second) Lebanon War – the IDF inflicted mass terror attacks and destruction throughout the country; around 1300 were killed; many more were wounded; one million (or one-fourth of the population) were displaced; and most vital infrastructure was destroyed to bring the country to a halt;

– the June 2006 Operation Summer Rain against Gaza; all border crossings were closed isolating the Territory and preventing essential to life supplies from getting in; air strikes and shellings were used; three main bridges were destroyed; the main water pipe for the Nusairat and al-Boreji refugee camps as well as the Strip’s only power plant supplying 80% of the Territory’s electricity; the IDF moved into Gaza and took control;

– the assault followed a series of bloody Israeli attacks: a weekend beach shelling killing eight Palestinians, including seven members of one family; 32 others were injured, including 13 children; a highway missile attack killing 11 and injuring 30; another missile attack killing three children and wounding 15;

– many thousands of Palestinians were killed, injured, imprisoned, and tortured; since 1967, over 700,000 have been incarcerated; the great majority are tortured; many are held uncharged in administrative detention; anywhere from 10 – 12,000 Palestinians or more remain in prison at all times;

Palestinians have endured all of the above and far more for over 60 years, 41 under occupation:

Don’t forget the U.S.A gives Israel 3 Billion dollars each year to carry out these atrocities and Britiain, Canada, France and many other western nations allow this to happen.  If the English were doing this to the people in Scotland or Wales would it be allowed.  The answer is no it would not be allowed.



A report from the Guardian Newspaper (UK) 2009

Israel's assault on Gaza has exacted the bloodiest toll of civilian lives yet, when the bombing of UN schools being used as refugee centres and of housing killed more than 50 people, including an entire family of seven young children.

The UN protested at a "complete absence of accountability" for the escalating number of civilian deaths in Gaza, saying "the rule of the gun" had taken over. Doctors in Gaza said more than 40 people died, including children, in what appears to be the biggest single loss of life of the campaign when Israeli bombs hit al-Fakhora school, in Jabaliya refugee camp, while it was packed with hundreds of people who had fled the fighting.

Most of those killed were in the school playground and in the street, and the dead and injured lay in pools of blood. Pictures on Palestinian TV showed walls heavily marked by shrapnel and bloodstains, and shoes and shredded clothes scattered on the ground. Windows were blown out.

Hours before, three young men who were cousins died when the Israelis bombed Asma elementary school in Gaza City. They were among 400 people who had sought shelter there after fleeing their homes in Beit Lahiya, in northern Gaza.

Abed Sultan, 20, a student, and his cousins, Rawhi and Hussein Sultan, labourers aged 22, died. Abed Sultan's father, Samir, said the bodies were so mangled that he could not tell his son from the cousins. "We came to the school when the Israelis warned us to leave," he said. "We hoped it would be safe. We were 20 in one room. We had no electricity, no blankets, no food.

"Suddenly we heard a bomb that shook the school. Windows smashed. Children started to scream. A relative came and told me one of my sons was killed. I found my son's body with his two cousins. They were cut into pieces by the shell." 

The Israeli military may have committed war crimes in Gaza, the UN's most senior human rights official said tonight, as Israeli troops pressed on with their increasingly deadly offensive in defiance of a UN security council resolution demanding a ceasefire.

Navi Pillay, the UN high commissioner for human rights, singled out the killing this week of up to 30 Palestinians in Zeitoun, south-east of Gaza City, when Israelshelled a house where its troops had told about 110 civilians to take shelter.

Pillay, a former international criminal court judge from South Africa, told the BBC the incident "appears to have all the elements of war crimes". She called for "credible, independent and transparent" investigations into possible violations of humanitarian law.

More than 40 Palestinians were killed in another incident on Tuesday after missiles exploded outside a UN school that had been sheltering hundreds of people in the Jabaliya refugee camp, despite the UN saying the school was clearly marked with a UN flag and its position reported to Israeli military.

More than 750 Palestinians have died since the start of the Israeli military operation. More than half of Gaza's population are children, and the Palestinian ministry of health said about 42% of the casualties have been children.

Unicef said at least 100 children and minors were killed in the first 10 days of fighting. The Palestinian Centre for Human Rights, which posts staff at hospitals to track casualties, put this number at more than 160.

 

 

Conclusion

We are repeatedly told that the Palestinians are terrorists while Israel is simply defending itself despite the reality that the overwhelming majority of those killed and displaced are Palestinians. Consequently, we never hear US and Canadian political leaders or the mainstream media accuse Israel of perpetrating state terrorism. It was not until after Israel illegally occupied the West Bank and Gaza in 1967 that the Palestinians, unable to engage in traditional combat with the powerful US-backed Israeli military, began to regularly utilize terrorist tactics in an attempt to liberate themselves from a brutal occupation. Furthermore, the decades-long occupation and military actions by Israel have only fuelled the rise of extremist groups such as Hamas at the expense of the more moderate Palestinian factions that dominated prior to the 1990s. And yet, despite the military and humanitarian reality of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, our political leaders and the mainstream media repeatedly portray Israelis as the victims. Which is exactly what happened in World War 2 were Germany was portrayed as the Villain and the Jews were the victims but Germany were the actual victims.  You will know this if you have read the World War 2 part on this website.

Below a video by David Icke describing accurately what has been happening to the Palestinians.




If you want to understand more about the Palestinian conflict then you really need to see the documentary that came out in 2017 titled ‘The Occupation of the American Mind: Israel’s Public Relation War in The United States’.

There is no doubt that the American people are bombarded with an unfair view of the Israeli\Palestinian conflict which favours Israel and that is simply because the Jews own the media in America and Congress is controlled by AIPAC.  They basically tell lies to the American public about the conflict.  A lie repeated again and again is accepted as truth, but it is still a lie.

Roger Waters is the narrator of The Occupation of the American Mind. He is an English rock musician, singer-songwriter, and composer. He is best known as the bass player, co-lead vocalist, lyricist, and principal songwriter in the rock band Pink Floyd. Over the last few years, he has emerged as a prominent advocate for Palestinian human rights.

Below is a link to the company that made the film with details about how to view it.

http://mediaed.org/occupationmovie/index.html

Below is just 3 reviews about the film ‘The Occupation of the American Mind’.

“One of the most brilliant and important documentaries I have ever seen. If a student wishes to understand how powerful interests manipulate the news and politics in a 'free' society, and have turned the Palestinians into a non-people who have no rights and deserve no justice, this powerful film is mandatory viewing. It will change the way you understand the world.”Robert W. McChesney, co-author, People Get Ready: The Fight Against a Jobless Economy and a Citizenless Democracy

“Amazing! Brilliantly exposes how American media is an active partner in the ugly and illegal occupation of Palestine. By promoting inaccurate narratives of self-defense and disguising the true stakes of the crisis, the State of Israel is able to garner sympathy and solidarity at a moment where it deserves outrage and critique. This is a must-watch documentary for anyone interested in understanding the truth of the Occupation and the failures of Western journalism.”Marc Lamont Hill, CNN political analyst and host of HuffPost Live

“One of the most compelling and important documentaries in recent years, because it helps us make sense of the lies, mayhem, and injustice in the heart of the Middle East: Palestine. Never has propaganda, or 'public relations', been such a lethal weapon as it is in the hands of Israel, its apologists, and manipulators. To reach behind the facade that is 'news', watch this film.” —John Pilger, author,journalist and filmmaker.

“We made this film for a very simple reason: because we believe government officials and mainstream media elites are denying the American people the basic information they need to make sense of one of the most consequential conflicts in the world. Regardless of where the American people stand on this conflict, we believe they deserve better. We believe American democracy deserves better. And we believe in the democratic imperative of holding our political leaders — and our news media — accountable. Given the huge stakes in the region, and the sheer amount of military, economic, and diplomatic support the United States gives Israel, we believe the American people have a right and a responsibility to make up their own minds about this conflict”, Loretta Alper and Jeremy Earp, Co-Directors Sut Jhally, Executive Producer.


The Rape of Lebanon

What Israel did to the Palestinians in the OPT over decades, it did to Lebanon in 1978, 1982 and in about a five week blitzkrieg beginning July 12, ending formally but fragilely with a UN-brokered ceasefire on August 14. Author Petras compares the assault to the Nazi's November 9 and 10, 1938 infamous Kristallnacht pogrom in the German Reich against the Jews calling that event a "garden party" compared to the rape of Lebanon and vast devastation from it. It began with Hezbollah's cross-border incursion on July 12, killing eight IDF soldiers in the exchange that followed and capturing two others. There's still a dispute over which side of the Lebanese border the incident took place as for years Israel routinely makes hostile incursions into Lebanon by land and air, and still illegally occupies the 25 square kilometer Shebaa Farms area of South Lebanon it never relinquished after seizing it in the 1967 war.

As against Gaza, Israel again responded swiftly and disproportionately in a reign of terror against the Lebanese people by land, air and sea. It killed and wounded thousands and displaced a million or more Lebanese civilians. It also systematically destroyed the country's essential to life and other vital infrastructure and created an amount of physical devastation that could take a generation to recover from if Israel even allows it to happen. It was done in part to destroy Hezbollah as a political entity and as an effective resistance force against Israel's imperial designs on the country. But Israel's plans are much more far-reaching than that as explained below.

Petras reported Middle East expert Juan Cole claims Israel wanted the war and planned it at least a year in advance. Matthew Kallman of the San Francisco Chronicle Foreign Service also found and reported evidence that preparations for it began in May, 2000, immediately after Israel ended its occupation of the country that began with its invasion and brutal assault in 1982 that killed about 18,000 Lebanese. Kallman also reported that over a year before the conflict began a senior IDF official gave "PowerPoint presentations" off the record to US and other officials and unnamed journalists and think tanks explaining how the attack would unfold "in revealing detail."

Again, Israel got the full backing, funding and arming as needed from the Bush administration to carry it out, effectively making this gruesome adventure a joint US-Israeli operation. Besides wanting to neutralize Hezbollah's resistance, the goal was to destroy Lebanon as a functioning country and ethnically cleanse the southern part of it up to the Litani River Israel wants to control and eventually annex and keep as it did the Golan after the 1967 war. Israel claims this area (like the Golan) is important for security reasons, but its greatest value (again like the Golan) is as a source of fresh water from the Litani and from the Wazzani springs that feed into the Hasbani River that's a tributary of the Jordan River. The Hisbani flows into Israel two miles downstream from the Wazzani and runs into the Sea of Galilee that's Israel's largest source of fresh water.

Israel has had designs on Lebanon for 40 years or more and has kept the country in a state of instability, partial occupation and conflict over most of that time. Now the state of the country is a devastated near-wasteland monitored by so-called (Israel-approved and friendly) UN Blue Helmets and Lebanese Armed Forces replacing the IDF on the ground under a fragile UN brokered ceasefire arrangement that could end any time Israel wishes again to unleash its war machine and on any pretext. There's nothing to deter Israel from doing it as it has the unconditional support of the Jewish Lobby and whatever US administration is in power. Unless this changes, the people of Lebanon, like those in Iraq and Palestine, can only look ahead to more conflict and the pain and suffering from it.

That's because there's still unfinished business for both empires, and it's not likely either one will soon give up on what they're determined to achieve. So even though Iraq is a hopeless quagmire, the Bush administration says it will "stay the course." And as long as Israel has full US backing, it will continue pursuing its imperial agenda even though Hezbollah humiliated the IDF in Lebanon and the Palestinians show no signs of ending their determined resistance short of mass-annihilation or forced expulsion. But it's not all smooth sailing as the unholy US-Israeli alliance faces a threat it can't ignore that could derail it. It's a growing broad-based worldwide anti-imperialist movement against these two partnered pariah states. It remains to be seen how far it will go, whether it can achieve critical mass in the US and in Israel, and if it can succeed in changing the direction of these two belligerents so far unstoppable and determined to go on unchecked by what passes for the civilized western world.


The Lies in the Destruction of Iraq

On September 23, 1980, a war started between Iraq and Iran that was to last eight years. The United States considered Saddam Hussein its ally in the fight against the Khomeini regime in Iran.

After the war between the Arab countries and Israel in 1967, Iraq had severed all
diplomatic relationships with the United States. This changed when the war between Iran and Iraq
started.

Recently released documents show how deep the U.S. was entangled in the serious crimes attributed
to Hussein, in particular regarding the use of chemical weapons against Iran.

Even when it became clear that Iraq had used chemical weapons against Iranian and Kurdish soldiers, the
U.S. government kept supporting Hussein politically, militarily and economically. After Hussein
had used chemical weapons to suppress a Kurdish revolt in the north, a representative of the State Department made the following remark: “OK, he is a crook. But he’s our crook.”

When Saddam Hussein deployed chemical
weapons against the Iranian troops during the Reagan administration, the U.S. imposed no sanctions on Iraq. Iran accused Iraq of violating the 1925 Geneva Protocol, which prohibits the use of chemical weapons. The documents show that, at least in 1983, the U.S. was fully aware of the fact that Iraq had used these weapons. In that same year, Iraq regained some of its power and restored its official relationship with the United States.

On May 16, 1988, Hussein attacked his own population in the north of Iraq with chemical weapons: on a single day, more than 5000 people were killed. This attack led to worldwide condemnation. The United States did not issue a single protest! Saddam Hussein could continue to count on the growing support of the U.S. It cannot be ignored that certain elements of the nerve gas Iraq used against Iran came from an American company called LaFarge. Bush Sr. had once been one of the main owners of that company, and the director at the time was Hillary Clinton!

When George H.W. Bush succeeded Ronald Reagan as president, America’s friendly position
towards Iraq remained unchanged.

When the Iraqi regime threatened U.S. oil interests in the Persian Gulf, Saddam Hussein suddenly
became a demon, and was portrayed as the personification of evil. Officially political support for
Iraq stopped on that August day in 1990 when Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait and was surprised by the backlash he received from the United States

In July 1990 a trap was to be set for Saddam Hussein.

President Bush authorized U.S. ambassador April Glaspie to
meet with President Hussein. The purpose of the meeting was to reassure President Saddam Hussein that the United States had no quarrel with him and would not intervene in any inter-Arab border disputes, according to a number of as yet unreleased State Department cables, which Representative
Henry Gonzalez was able to obtain. This was a clear reference to Iraq’s dispute with Kuwait over the Rumalia oilfields. The Iraqis took Glaspie’s words as a signal from Washington that they could send their army into Kuwait.

U.S. Ambassador Glaspie:
‘We have no opinion on your Arab - - Arab conflicts, such as your dispute with Kuwait. Secretary of
State James Baker has directed me to emphasize the instruction, first given to Iraq in the 1960’s,
that the Kuwait issue is not associated with America’

When the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait started on August 2, 1990, the Iraqi fleet was limited, Iraqi
submarines were absent, the technology of the communication systems limited and Iraqi soldiers few and poorly motivated. Why was Saddam Hussein given the go-ahead for the invasion when it was clear in advance that his troops might easily be beaten? Why was this war started without giving a clear warning to the Iraqi leader (which would certainly have meant calling off the attack)?

Public opinion was not yet ready to accept the idea of a military
intervention. The willingness of the American people to go to war changed completely, however, on October 10, 1990, when a fifteen-year-old girl from Kuwait was introduced to Congress. This girl, “Nayirah”, told Congress that she had been working as a volunteer in a hospital in Kuwait, and that there she had seen how Iraqi soldiers had taken little babies from their incubators and thrown them on the
floor. President Bush repeated that story countless times, even going so far as to refer to an exact
number of 312 children who were supposed to have been killed this way. Amnesty International also mentioned this incident on December 19, 1990. Shortly afterward, it became clear that the girl had lied to Congress under an assumed name. It turned out that Nayirah was the daughter of the Kuwaiti ambassador to the U.S.! Following this revelation, Amnesty International, in April 1991, also corrected its earlier announcements. This is an example of a proven historical lie that was used by the U.S. to justify a war that was important to them.

During the six weeks of the Gulf War, the United States sent hundreds of fighter planes to Iraq to bomb the
civilian population every night. Many of the bombs were coated with depleted uranium. On the
Iraqi side, more than 150,000 civilians and as many soldiers died. Hundreds of thousands of Iraqi
soldiers, although running away or towards the American soldiers while waving white flags were
killed with Napalm. Even after Iraq on February 28, 1991, signed the United Nations resolution
thousands of Iraqi civilians on their way to the interior of Iraq, continued to be killed by the U.S. Air
Force. Many of those killed while fleeing Kuwait were not Iraqi soldiers, but Palestinians, Sudanese, Egyptians, Filipinos and other imported laborers. Michael Ratner, the former director of the “Center for Constitutional Rights” established that the allied forces had committed gross violations, against the
“The Hague and Geneva Conventions”, of the kind for which German and Japanese soldiers had
been condemned to death after the Second World War. The reason for such a serious accusation was the mass murder and subsequent burial of Iraqi soldiers that had surrendered, and the countless number of civilians that had been murdered while fleeing in their private cars. This was a
wellplanned, systematic killing of a defenseless population, murdered by a powerful Air Force that
was yet to set foot on Iraqi soil.

For years the United States, with the backing of British Prime Minister Tony Blair, emposed numerous embargos on the Iraqi people, accompanied by daily bombardments. More than ten years after the end
of the war the U.S. and Great Britain continued to bomb Iraq daily. At the same time the economic
sanctions, imposed by the United Nations on the initiative of the United States, caused the deaths of a million Iraqis, mainly the elderly, poor and ill. The World Health Organization (WHO) assumes that since the embargos were first imposed, 800,000 Iraqi children have died and a third of those who managed to survive were underweight and died of malnutrition.

Documents from the U.S. Army show that nearly one million projectiles used against Iraq contained 315 tons of depleted uranium. This amount of depleted uranium has caused an enormous growth in the number of cancer patients and deformed children in Iraq.

Depleted uranium causes genetic damage, resulting in
miscarriages, stillborn and barely viable children. Mothers exposed to depleted uranium gave birth to children with the following defects: hydrocephalus with brain damage and mental defects,
phokomelia (emphatic disfigurement of the limbs), insufficient production of cartilage on the lower
limbs, disfigurement, deformity of the fingers and toes, cleft palate, and spina bifida, amongst others. Incidentally, radioactive material travels large distances with relative ease, which means that particles can end up in the soil, water and food.

In addition to infectious diseases and
malnutrition, there are numerous cases of mysterious ailments. Babies are born with deformities that are not described in any medical handbook. Some are born without eyes, without a brain or without genitalia. There are babies with cleft palates and monstrous heads. Most of the tiny victims die when or soon after they are born. The humiliating and criminal sanctions imposed by the United Nations deliberately prohibited the supply of much needed medicines. However, it was not until nine days after the end of the war that the risks of the weapons using depleted uranium was communicated to the soldiers of the allies. Ten years after the Gulf War, over 90,000 U.S. soldiers are ill. The main suspect is ammunition with depleted uranium.

Let’s Attack Iraq, Again

On March 20, 2003, a United States coalition entered into Iraq launching a surprise attack without first declaring war.  The invasion was comprised of 250,000 US military troops, with support from an estimated 45,000 British forces, close to 2,000 Australian forces and about 200 Polish forces

America and Britain (Bush & Blair) lied that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction and had links to Al Qaida and 9/11 just so they could go to war and steal the national resources (oil, gold etc.) of Iraq and then install a puppet government.  Israel’s greatest enemy in the Middle East was Saddam Hussein and Iraq so they benefitted hugely from the removal of Saddam and the destruction of Iraq.

By May 1st 2003, President Bush declared the invasion a success.  He announced that major combat operations had ceased and the US, along with her allies, was successful in removing an ally of al Qaida.  Which was nonsense because there was no evidence linking Al Qaida to Saddam Hussein?  Despite this news, fighting continued within various pockets of resistance and Saddam Hussein still remained at large.  President Bush gave no specific date for withdrawal of US troops.

About 450,000 Iraqi’s have died since 2003 because of the war and sectarian violence brought about by the removal of Saddam Hussein.  Iraq and the lives of its people would have been much better off if Saddam Hussein had stayed as the leader.  Well 450,000 human beings would still be living. 

Iraq was destroyed in America and Israel’s (Cabal’s) quest to dominate the Middle East.  As part of this quest Syria is currently being sorted out and then I suppose it will be Iran’s turn.

But they always follow the same formulae in destroying these countries.  Demonise the leader through the controlled western media and say he is committing genocide against his own people or a race of people within his country and then use the United Nations resolutions to get permission to bomb the hell out of the said country. This same formulae has been used against Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Serbia and now Syria.  I might add that this same formulae was used against Hitler and Germany in World War 2.  It is the same formulae because it is the same organisation behind it all, namely the Cabal who control America, Britain, Israel and NATO.

The Theft from the Iraqi Museum

The looting of Iraq’s museums and National Library, with the destruction of much of Iraq’s cultural heritage, is a historic crime for which the Bush administration is responsible.

US government officials were warned repeatedly about possible damage to irreplaceable artifacts, either from American bombs and missiles or from post-war instability after the removal of the Iraqi government, but they did nothing to prevent it. Their inaction constitutes a gross violation of the 1954 Hague Convention on the protection of artistic treasures in wartime, adopted in response to the Nazi looting of occupied Europe during World War II.

At least 80 percent of the 170,000 separate items stored at the National Museum of Antiquities in Baghdad were stolen or destroyed during the looting rampage that followed the US military occupation of Baghdad. The museum was the greatest single storehouse of materials from the civilizations of ancient Mesopotamia, including Sumeria, Akkadia, Babylonia, Assyria and Chaldea. It also held artefacts from Persia, Ancient Greece, the Roman Empire and various Arab dynasties.

The museum held the tablets with Hammurabi’s Code, perhaps the world’s first system of laws, and cuneiform texts that are the oldest known examples of writing—epic poems, mathematical treatises, historical accounts. An entire library of clay tablets had not yet been deciphered or researched, in part because of the US-backed sanctions that restricted travel to Iraq.

Another significant loss came from the burning of the nearby National Library, containing tens of thousands of old manuscripts and books, and newspapers from the Ottoman Empire to the present. The library’s reading rooms and stacks were reduced to smoking ruins.

Ironically, the only hope for the survival of some archaeological treasures is that they might have been removed from the museum before the war, to be displayed in one or another of the private residences of Saddam Hussein and his family. A large selection of artefacts made of gold was stored for safekeeping at the Iraqi Central Bank, but that facility was looted and burned as well.


Libya

In 1967 Colonel Gaddafi inherited one of the poorest nations in Africa; however, by the time he was assassinated, Gaddafi had turned Libya into Africa’s wealthiest nation. Libya had the highest GDP per capita and life expectancy on the continent. Less people lived below the poverty line than in the Netherlands.  After NATO’s intervention in 2011, Libya is now a failed state and its economy is in shambles.

America, Britain and NATO’s (or the Cabal’s) plan was to oust Gaddafi, install a puppet regime, and gain control of Libya’s natural resources.  To do so they enlisted paid mercenaries such as the Ansar al-Sharia group who were armed by NATO to rebel against Gaddafi in 2011.  These same mercenaries then went into Syria to try and remove President Assad’s regime but at the moment they have not been able to do that.  There was no justification in removing Gaddafi.  He was not committing any crimes against his people.  When the Ansar al-Sharia group took over towns, Gaddafi sent in the army to try and remove them and then America, Britain and NATO said he was committing Genocide against his own people so in came NATO and bombed the country back to the stone age.

The real truth is Gaddafi used the national oil wealth to create social welfare programs for all Libyans.  Under Gaddafi’s rule, Libyans enjoyed free education, free electricity, free health-care and interest free loans.  Women in Gaddafi’s Libya had the right to education, hold jobs, divorce, hold property and have an income. The United Nations Human Rights Council praised Gaddafi for his promotion of women’s rights. 

Below is a statement by James Moriarty who worked in Libya but escaped the country when the revolution started in 2011.

“When you got married the government gave you a $46,000 gift. Each child began with a $5,000 gift from the government. Your house cost you 10 percent of your salary for 20 years and then it was yours. Your first car cost you half of dealer invoice. Your utilities were paid, electricity, gas, etc. Gasoline was 44 cents a gallon.  Nobody in Libya had any debt. The country had no debt. They only spent about 49 percent of the money they took in to run the government. The rest of the money was distributed out via these activities for the people. The people lived very well. If you were a bad businessman and you lost your money for whatever reason and you needed to feed your family, there were food storehouses all over the country. You could go up to the storehouse, tell them you needed food and without any ID or anything, they'd give you 50 kilos of rice and 50 kilos of flour, 20 kilos of powdered milk, enough money to have an animal slaughtered, 20 kilos of cheese, etc. They gifted it to you and if you had to come back two or three days later, do it again. At Ramadan, which is like their Christmas, any man, woman or child could go into any bank in Libya and they got a $500 gift from the government. 

So the people in Libya had a really good life. There was never any intent for those people to have an uprising. That was an absolute false flag operation”


The two real reasons that the Western powers (Cabal) wanted to remove Gaddafi were:

1. The reason they were able to give interest free loans was that Libya had its own bank and they did not have a Cabal\Rothschild bank running the national economy.

2. Gaddafi had a plan to establish a gold-backed currency and this would not be allowed by the Cabal.

Guess what, Libya now has a central Cabal\Rothschild bank.

NATO forces bombed the country's historical archival buildings, in an apparent effort to eliminate all traces of Libyan history. They blew up homes, streets, food stores, schools, hospitals, basic infrastructure like water supplies, wheat fields and date-palm groves. They 'opened up' the country for what it is today a truly "failed state" with daily violence and not one but two competing governments.  Again this was the same way that the Cabal destroyed Germany in World War 2 because Hitler had removed the central Rothschild banks from Germany.

The fall of Gaddafi’s administration has created all of the country’s worst-case scenarios: Western embassies have all left, the South of the country has become a haven for terrorists, and the Northern coast a centre of migrant trafficking. Egypt, Algeria and Tunisia have all closed their borders with Libya. This all occurs amidst a backdrop of widespread rape, assassinations and torture that complete the picture of a state that is failed and all because of the intervention of NATO, America, Britain and France.

The Libyan death toll from NATO’s bombs or I should say American, British and French bombs are at least 500,000 people.  Twenty-five percent of all babies born now in Libya die the first day because of the depleted uranium. 

Rebels or mercenaries were recruited, trained and funded by America\Israel and NATO to help remove Gaddafi on the ground while they pounded the country from the skies.  These same rebels were then moved to Syria to oust Assad and now people call them Isis\Isil or Daesh. America then falsely claimed it was bombing Isis but then Russia stepped in and showed them how to do it properly.  Because Putin and Russia were helping Assad fight Isis two Russian aircraft were shot down, one a passenger jet and the other a fighter jet which was shot down by Turkey.  Now Turkey is one of the countries funding and arming Isis.  Then western governments help to stage false flag terror attacks against its own people and then blame Isis for the attacks.

America, Israel, Britain and France are run by psychopaths because there is no other word for what they have done to Iraq, Libya, Palestine and now Syria.

Just a reminder of the number of human beings that have been killed because of the western governments. These are the people in America and Britain that you people voted for. I hope you get what you deserve Mr G. Bush, Mr T Blair, Mr Obama and Mr Cameron and Mr Netanyahu.

Deaths in Iraq : 1,500,000

Deaths in Libya : 500,000

Deaths in Syria : 470,000
