Definition of Anti-Semitism

COMMENTARY: The Manipulation Of The Definition Of Anti-Semitism

“Before there was any mention of a so-called “Holocaust,” and while America was still neutral, American Zionists, with the approval of the media, produced the most mass genocidal book in history: Theodore N. Kaufman in “Germany Must Perish” (Argyle Press, Newark, 1941) literally urged the sterilization of 48,000,000 German men and women of childbearing age, so that, he explained, Germanism will be extirpated in two generations,” Source: Institute for Historical Review

We see that throughout history, these so-called “Jews” have been the initiators of all wars for the purpose of not only collecting profits from their destruction but to slowly impose their evil power over humanity.

The manipulation of the definition of anti-semitism & exploitation of the concept of anti-semitism is a sinister trend. The international Zionist cabal & network are cunningly trying to change the notion of anti-semitism to stop any criticism of Israel and its litany of war crimes.

The manipulation of the definition of anti-semitism, and along with it the exploitation of the concept of anti-semitism, is a sinister trend that has been accelerating lately. Historically, anti-semitism used to actually mean something (i.e. the hatred of Jews just because they were Jewish). Nowadays, the international Zionist cabal and network are cunningly trying to change the definition of anti-semitism to stop any criticism of Israel. Such criticism of Israel may be entirely legitimate, justified and based on the actions of the Israeli Government, and thus have nothing to do with “Jews”, “Jewishness” or “Judaism” itself. However, the Zionist plan is to catch all such criticism in the anti-semitism/hate speech dragnet so that the Israeli Government can continue unimpeded on its merry genocidal way. The definition of anti-semitism is being changed for one simple reason: censorship.

Zionist-backed South Carolina Law Changing the Definition of Anti-Semitism in the US

Just take a look at recent bills and laws on the books inside of the United States. In April 2018, South Carolina passed a law with a new definition of anti-semitism which significantly broadened the meaning of the term. The effects are far-reaching. This piece of legislation requires the state’s colleges to use this new definition when determining whether an action is “discriminatory” (and thus banned). Essentially, in many areas related to Zionism, it forbids factual and true statements which are critical of Israel by codifying them as anti-semitic! Seems the terms post-truth world and post-fact world are spot on.

Take a look at pg. 81 of the 278-page document:

(B) For purposes of this proviso, the term “definition of anti-Semitism” includes:
(1) a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of anti-Semitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities;
(2) calling for, aiding, or justifying the killing or harming of Jews;
(3) making mendacious, dehumanizing, demonizing, or stereotypical allegations about Jews as such or the power of Jews as a collective;
(4) accusing Jews as a people of being responsible for real or imagined wrongdoing committed by a single Jewish person or group, the state of Israel, or even for acts committed by non-Jews;
(5) accusing the Jews as a people, or Israel as a state, of inventing or exaggerating the Holocaust;
(6) accusing Jewish citizens of being more loyal to Israel, or to the alleged priorities of Jews worldwide, than to the interest of their own nations;
(7) using the symbols and images associated with classic anti-Semitism to characterize Israel or Israelis;
(8) drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis;
(9) blaming Israel for all inter-religious or political tensions;
(10) applying double standards by requiring of it a behavior not expected or demanded of any other democratic nation;
(11) multilateral organizations focusing on Israel only for peace or human rights investigations; and
(12) denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination, and denying Israel the right to exist, provided, however, that criticism of Israel similar to that leveled against any other country cannot be regarded as anti-Semitic.

(1) is the true and historical definition, and I can fully understand why this (as with any other form of racism) is a problem, just as (2) and (4) are. As a libertarian, I don’t believe it is the government’s job to force people into being kind (you can’t legislate morality), although the civil rights movement did a lot for people who suffered from a lack of rights and freedom. Obviously I can see how a government would be concerned about public safety with (2) and (4). However, most of the following points are a gross expansion of the original definition of anti-semitism into something so broad that it stifles free speech, critical thinking and the ability to investigate and discuss openly many aspects of the worldwide conspiracy. So, if you live in South Carolina, it is now illegal to:

(3) – make reference to the obvious fact that concentrated Jewish power exists and dominates certain industries such as the media (MSM, Hollywood), politics or the high-tech sector (the Talpiot Program);

(5) – investigate, draw your own conclusions from a historical event (the Holocaust) and announce those conclusions if they differ from the official story. In fact, even if you merely say the number of Jewish deaths is wrong (i.e. not 6 million), you are not a historian or researcher, but rather an anti-semite, because you are stating that the Jews or Israel are “exaggerating” the Holocaust – which happens to be the truth, since the Holocaust has been seized and capitalized upon for political gain, as many Jews such as Norman Finkelstein point out;

(6) – claim that some dual Israel-US citizens may be more loyal to Israel than the US. Wow! Ever looked at the 9/11 cast of characters and conspirators? They are full of Neocons and Zionists! There are so many examples of Israeli collusion on 9/11, helped on by PNAC Zionists like Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, Michael Chertoff, Dov Zakheim and many more;

(8) – point out the obvious hypocrisy of the Zionist regime which runs Gaza like an open-air concentration camp, just as the Nazis did with the Jews and other minorities. Israel rations food, water, electricity and other supplies to the Palestinians, controls their freedom of movement, tests out its new weaponry on unsuspecting Arabs there, as well as slaughters anyone it wants too with impunity, by falsely claiming that it is “only defending itself” and that all Palestinian protestors including women and children are automatically from Hamas (yes, the very same Hamas that Israel supported and helped to create);

(11) – demand that peace and human rights organizations focus on Israel, when, demonstrably, Israel has been the main aggressor in the region ever since its inception, including starting the 6-Day War against Egypt then Syria, attacking the USS Liberty, stealing land from its neighbors and invading Lebanon in 1982.

stigma-of-anti-semitism

Changing the definition of anti-semitism: the game is up.

Also, with (10), what exactly are people expecting of Israel and not expecting of any other nation? That it stops its discriminatory apartheid policies that values Jewish citizens over all other citizens? It is equally demanded in all Western democracies that all people are treated equal regardless of race and religion (even though it doesn’t happen in practice). Likewise, with (9), it is undeniable that Israel’s power is massively disproportionate and large compared to its tiny population and geographical area. It has a history of provoking the countries around it into war by being the aggressor. Number (12) makes the point that “criticism of Israel similar to that leveled against any other country cannot be regarded as anti-Semitic” yet this is just a lip-service glossover. The whole point of this bill is to crush criticism of Israel! This proviso reminds of the proviso in the Balfour Declaration where it states that the UK approves of Israel building settlements in Palestine as long as the indigenous people living there are not disadvantaged. Well, that worked well. The whole existence of Israel, since even before 1948, is been nothing but a pushing back, stealing and genocide.

Federal Bill Also to Change Definition of Anti-Semitism

On May 23rd 2018, a federal bill was also introduced called the Anti-Semitism Awareness Act of 2018. The goals are the same: silence criticism of Israel, gut the First Amendment and cancel free speech – despite the fact that anti-semitic harassment is already illegal under federal law. This is just part of a larger pattern whereby the pervasive Zionist influence throughout the halls of Western Government clamps down on any anti-Zionist perspectives – in the US, UK, Canada, Australia and other places. The ACLU writes:

“Campaigns aimed at excluding critics of Israel from participating in public events are mounting, often with support of publicly funded institutions. A Chicago-area public library temporarily cancelled a talk about a book titled “The Battle for Justice in Palestine,” before reconsidering its decision. The Missouri History Museum cancelled a community event titled “From Ferguson to Ayotzinapa to Palestine,” after organizers refused to remove Palestinian panelists.”

Manufactured Anti-Semitism

The must-watch documentary Defamation, made by Israeli Jew film director Yoav Shamir, does an excellent job exposing how modern anti-semitism is largely invented out of thin air. Yes, anti-semites, White supremacists, and other Jew-haters exist, but as a tiny minority, shunned by the majority of people who are not racist. Yet, so much Jewish identity and sympathy for Zionism and Israel depends on anti-semitism being alive, so organizations like the ADL (Anti-Defamation League) exist essentially to fan the flames and concoct sham reports, which then get passed along to the MSM and FBI, who dutifully to the Zionist line and declare falsities like “anti-semitism is on the rise.”

Final Thoughts

We live in a world where our cherished freedom of speech is under constant attack, especially by PC (political correctness). Zionism is at the apex of the PC pyramid; it’s the tyrant-king who has learned how to name-call and throw mud par excellence. It has everyone scared, especially politicians and celebrities, of saying anything even slightly offensive. It harnesses its massive network to make the name “anti-semite” stick, even if there’s no truth to it.

The modification of the definition of anti-semitism is a crude attempt to exploit the real suffering of Jews 85+ years ago at the hands of the Nazis. This agenda is even targeted at (the now many) Jews who oppose Zionism themselves! It has nothing to so with real historical meaning of anti-semitism, but rather operates purely to suppress criticism of Israel. Historian David Irving spoke of an organized international network that would target him when he reported historical facts. Whether it’s the CAA in England, or AIPAC, the ADL and the SPLC in the US, the goal is the same.

Remember what former Israeli Minister Shulamit Aloni admitted:

“Well, it’s a trick. We always use it. When from Europe someone criticizes Israel, then we bring out the Holocaust. When in this country (USA) when they criticize Israel, they are anti-semitic … it’s very easy to blame people who criticize certain acts of the Israeli Government … that justifies everything we do to the Palestinians.”

Clever people will see through this ruse of anti-semitism – and brave people will rise above it.

DEBATE: Trump’s Jerusalem Al-Quds Decision

It is very revolting to see how they keep brainwashing the people into thinking that the US, now led by Zionist Trump is leading the world to WWIII. People MUST realize that the West was hijacked centuries ago and the plan to destroy it from within has been unfolding right in front of our eyes. What we are seeing today is the fulfillment of a long-desired goal of international Jewry. Every single step they take has been carefully planned. Israel will be destroyed and the Jews who are leading the evil game will move to Russia where Putin is waiting with open arms. The United States will also be destroyed and many cities will disappear. Christians will be persecuted.

INTERVIEW: ‘Zionists Seek Occupying Not Only Palestine, But Entire Arab Region’

There is no doubt this woman is lying but who doesn’t lie in government? Her name is Boutaina Shaaban, she is a Syrian politician and political and media adviser to the President of Syria. Mrs. Shaaban is protecting Zionists and at the same time attacking them. Why? because they continue insulting our intelligence by ‘making us think’ that Assad is on ‘one side’ and the west is ‘on the other side’. There are NO two sides in this dirty evil game, just ONE and the objective is changing the map of the Middle East as we know it. In the meantime the Goyim get killed, do they care? Of course not! Instead, they celebrate and offer their blood to their god – Satan. It’s all about ‘ethnic cleansing’.  

Syria
“‘Zionists seek occupying not only Palestine, but entire Arab region’,” Source: en.mehrnews.com

Since 2011, a destructive, Islamist-oriented war has been waged against Syria. Who wanted to destroy Syria in the name of Islam? And what were they aiming at by launching this war in collusion with the Zionist entity? 

Just like the so-called ‘Arab Spring’ struck Libya, Iraq and other countries in the Middle East, this vicious war aims at destroying our countries, armies, economies, cultures, and identities by our bitter enemy i.e. the Zionist entity.

However, Turkey’s Erdogan has proved to be a key player in destroying Syria, driven by his Ottoman dreams as a prominent leader of the Muslim Brotherhood organization, which had attempted to topple the Syrian government back in the 70s. It has been unequivocally proven that Muslim Brotherhood is deeply connected with the Zionist project and foreign intelligence agencies.

As a sovereign state supporting the resistance, Syria acts as the ‘crown jewel’ for all Arab nations. Syria stood by the Lebanese Resistance in 2006 and with the Intifada [uprising] of Gaza in 2008. The Axis of Resistance is clearly manifested in the meeting that took place in Damascus between President Bashar al-Assad, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Hezbollah’s Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah.

Setting the scene for the war on Syria has undoubtedly taken place years ago in terms of fighters, arms provided and logistical support. Were the reforms made by President Assad at the beginning of the crisis meant to calm down the demonstrators, or did he really want to bring them in?

Mr. President genuinely wanted to implement those reforms. Had the demonstrations been unprompted, the crisis would have ended a long time ago. Mr. President himself headed a meeting for Al-Baath Regional Leadership on March 24th, 2011 to endorse a wide range of reforms in response to the people’s demand, and which were officially announced later in a press conference.

Nonetheless, the more responding we were, the higher those demands rose. Later, we realized that those demonstrations were pre-planned to destroy Syria.

The Syrian people have withstood 6 years of global war. What are the main factors behind such resilience?

In fact, there are several factors. First of all, the Syrian people are deep-rooted in this land for over 10,000 years and known to be greatly affiliated with their homeland; they have triumphed over the invaders ever since. Secondly, the one and unified Syrian Army which offered and continue to offer huge sacrifices to preserve the country. Thirdly, the wise leadership headed by Mr. President, who bravely fought back and defended Syria.

You’ve been with President Assad throughout this war. How do you view his approach to this war compared to his father the late President Hafez Assad?

In terms of adhering to homeland and making sacrifices, they are identical. But the circumstances have changed. This war is entirely unprecedented in the history of the region with 150 countries financing, arming terrorists and plotting to destroy Syria, not to mention the 860 km-long borders with Turkey; a country which supported terrorists and granted them safe and easy access into Syria. There are also Qatar and Saudi Arabia which almost entirely bankrolled this war.

Syria has provided unparalleled support to the Palestinian movements, especially Hamas in spite of its hostile stance towards President al-Assad during the war.

What does Palestine represent for Syria’s strategic vision? And has such vision been negatively affected after attitude Hamas’?

Palestine is Jerusalem, Al-Aqsa Mosque, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the birth of Jesus Christ, and the indigenous people. Thus targeting Palestine means targeting whole Arab World, and whoever defends Palestine is defending himself.

The Zionist entity seeks to take over not only Palestine but also the entire Arab region. The fact that Resistance defends Palestine as well as the entire region is not yet fully comprehended by the vast majority of Arab regimes.

We embraced and supported Hamas as a resistant movement even though we knew it was part of the wider Muslim Brotherhood project, which was adopted by Hamas leaders during the war against Syria.

Syria has been, and will always be on the same front with the Resistance based on our belief to re-make the Palestinian cause the first priority.

And here comes the imperative question: why didn’t Syria launch any military operation in the occupied Golan Heights during the past years?

This question has been raised repeatedly to doubt the role of Syria. All the resistant movements in Lebanon and Palestine are fully aware of the key role undertaken by Syria in supporting such anti-Israeli project. However, launching a military operation on the Occupied Golan Height is subject to specific considerations related to countries, which are completely different from those of the resistant movements.

The US and its allies imposed many sanctions on Syria in various fields. How did Syria manage to withstand these sanctions? And to what extent these sanctions have contributed to the unity of the Syrian people and their persistence to win?

They tried to spread sectarianism among the Syrian people and use language which was entirely outlandish and unrelated to our civilization. However, those sanctions were confronted through enhancing our national unity and paying more attention to our own resources in agriculture, industry, handicrafts and others. Let’s not also forget that the cooperation with our allies: Iran and Russia has been critical in facing these challenges.

Russia took part in Syrian war at the request of the Syrian leadership in 2015.

Where has Russia been since the beginning of the war? Did Russia intervene when it felt that its interests are at stake?

The basic problem lies in what the Western MSM (mainstream media) is promoting, especially concerning Russia’s intervention. In the same context, up to 80% of the Arab media outlets are owned by Saudi Arabia, which are also working in collaboration with the West and the Zionists.

Just like the new settlers in America, Israel seeks to obliterate the landmarks of Arab civilization to emerge as the only strong state in the region. Israel has once destroyed ‘King Nimrod’ and now attempts to destroy the ancient city of Palmyra.

Russia did not enter Syria on September 30th 2015; we must remember that on October 4th, 2011, Russia and China double vetoed a UNSC resolution aimed at conducting a military intervention in Syria. Russia and China have contributed to the protection of Syria from the very beginning because their role was constructive and positive.

How can we understand Russia’s strong relationship with the Zionist entity – which is deeply involved in plotting with Takfiri groups against Syria – while desperately defending the unity of Syria and its leadership? In other words, how could Israeli warplanes bomb military outposts in Syria without being intercepted by Russian anti-aircraft missile system?

In politics, you should use the “art of possible”. Russia signed an agreement with the United States on September 9, 2016, but the latter has not fulfilled its commitments; however Russian – American negotiations went on. Turkey, on the other hand, shot down a Russian fighter jet; still both countries engage in talks until today.

Russia is a superpower who maintains its own interests and calculations, so its relations with the Zionist enemy do not affect the unity of Syria, its cooperation with the Syrian leadership and Syrian army.

To what extent does Syrian leadership trust Russia’s Putin?

The Syrian leadership has absolute and unlimited confidence in Russia under the leadership of President Vladimir Putin. We are consulting with our Russian ally in almost all matters. In fact, Russia’s perspective and standpoint are different from those adopted by Western countries; it [Russia] believes in maintaining the sovereignty of other countries, and preserving their independence, freedom and dignity.

Lebanon’s Hezbollah has openly aligned itself with the Syrian Arab Army and the Syrian leadership since the beginning of the war. Did both leaderships have a clear vision which resulted in such mutual understanding of events? And how do you assess the role of Hezbollah in Syria?

Hezbollah’s commendable role in Syria has been extremely pivotal and significant, and genuinely reflects its identity as a resistant movement. Syria and Hezbollah maintained a clear and identical vision from the very beginning since both fight in the same front to achieve the same objective and project. We were aware that this war meant to destroy Syria first, Hezbollah then the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Had Hezbollah failed to win the battle of Qalamoun, Lebanon would have been overrun with terrorism. Whoever advocated the ‘self-distancing’ policy without taking into account the geopolitical and identity factors failed to understand the political dimensions.

Being a strategic and key player as well as a political negotiator in the Syrian war, what is the main role undertaken by Iran in supporting the steadfastness of Syria? Is it true that Iran offered President Assad and his family a safe asylum in Iran?

Iran is a trustworthy ally which played a key role in the steadfastness of the Syrian people; our friendship dates back to the victory of the Islamic revolution. The late President Hafez Assad stood by Iran when Iraq’s Saddam Hussein waged a war against it. Our relationship with Iran has a common and important bond which is to liberate Palestine.

There is a media and political party that believes Syria would have been spared the havoc, deaths and suffering if President Assad had relinquished power. Why didn’t President al-Assad resign from office? Did he consider such a proposal?

It was not about relinquishing power rather than abandoning Syria. President Assad thinks of himself as a legitimately-elected leader who has been entrusted to preserve the country’s sovereignty, unity and the principles it stands for.

President Assad said that after liberating Aleppo, Syria will be different. What is the importance of Aleppo victory?

By liberating Aleppo, Syria has triumphed; all major Syrian cities are now under the control of the Syrian government, not to mention that Erdogan’s project in Aleppo was completely fizzled out.

The huge quantities of supplies and weapons left by the terrorists after being forced to leave Aleppo reveal the gigantic support provided by western countries, Turkey and some Arab states to the terrorist groups. Henceforth, all their claims about fighting terrorism turned to be blatant lies because they were the main backers and masterminds of terrorism.

Through Maraya International magazine, what would you like to say to the Syrian people and allies after six years of war, with the victory looming in 2017?

I’d like to thank the Syrian people and those who defended, fought and prayed for Syria, the Syrian Arab Army in particular, may God have mercy on the martyrs’ souls, and may the wounded have quick recovery.

I also want to express deep thanks to our allies: Russia, Iran and Hezbollah, for standing by us all the way. The Sykes-Picot agreement, that the enemy wants to end, seeking a colonial domination on the region, must be nullified by us in order to establish a true oriental Middle East that genuinely reflects our Arab and Persian civilizations. We all came from the same region, same resistance, and our goal is also the same.

Russia’s role in the war is to be highly commended for proving false the theory of unipolarity.

Boutaina Shaaban is a Syrian politician and is currently the political and media adviser to the President of Syria. Shaaban served as the first Minister of Expatriates for the Syrian Arab Republic, between 2003 and 2008, and has been described as the Syrian government’s face to the outside world.

Gopstein's people

COMMENTARY: Israel’s Lehava Stirs ‘Anarchy’ In Jerusalem

Israel occupies Arab land and wants to exterminate the people! And the Jews are called peaceful people? We have already posted about Gopstein’s violent movement and his hatred against non-Jews, which in reality is nothing new! The fact that the Jews call everybody else in this world anti-Semites and racists when one disagrees or simply proves them wrong or exposes their lies, is proof that they consider themselves different from the rest. The ONLY RACISTS here are the Jews, there are no other people who have that much hate and violence against humanity like the Jews. They are taught at the Synagogue and from early childhood to hate and kill non-Jews while they read their holy blasphemous book called the Talmud – Judaism the religion of peace! 

What is revolting is to have to continue to listen and read LIES about Hitler, when Hitler was fighting for freedom from Communism! Comparing Jewish racism with Hitler is like comparing Satan with Christ. Hitler wanted a strong Germany and wanted to free Europe from the tentacles of the Soviet Union and Jewish usury that had destroyed his country like it has destroyed our world. People have to stop complaining about the state of our world, instead, they have to learn who their enemy is and fight it. That doesn’t mean killing Jews!!!! It simply means putting these people in their place. But ignorance and/or malfeasance keeps the Jews and the useful idiots in a dominant position. The Jews have always complained about ‘persecution’ and being the victim when the truth is, that we the non-Jews are their victim and the ones who they want to exterminate. Oh! But, America keeps on helping them! 

Gopstein's people

“Israel’s Lehava stirs ‘anarchy’ in Jerusalem,” Source: aljazeera.com

Jerusalem – Four youths in black T-shirts, bearing a distinctive yellow-flame insignia, approached “A” in July as he got out of a taxi in central Jerusalem to meet friends. They asked him the time. Suspicious of his accent, they confronted him directly: “Are you an Arab?”

“The moment I said, ‘yes,’ one of them punched me in the eye. The others jumped on me and started hitting me all over my body. There were many people in the area, but no one took any notice or tried to help.”

“A” managed to break free and fled to a nearby restaurant, where a friend worked, and hid inside. “If I hadn’t been able to run away, they would have killed me,” he said.

His filmed testimony is one of several taken of Palestinians in Jerusalem who have been violently assaulted recently by far-right Jewish activists. Fearing reprisals, most of the victims agreed to testify only on condition that their real identities were not disclosed.

The attacks were carried out by a far-right group called Lehava, or Flame in Hebrew, an acronym for the Organisation for the Prevention of Miscegenation in the Holy Land. Run by a far-right rabbi, Ben-Zion Gopstein, Lehava rejects any interaction between Jews and Palestinians.

Founded in 2009, Lehava is distinguished from other far-right groups by its official focus on stopping miscegenation and intermarriage between Jews and Palestinians. In addition to the 300,000 Palestinians in Jerusalem, some 1.7 million of Israel’s citizens are Palestinian by origin, making them nearly a fifth of the population.

Lehava is believed to be trying to extend its reach to a handful of “mixed” cities in Israel where small numbers of Palestinian citizens live in neighborhoods close to Israeli Jews.

In 2014, some 200 Lehava supporters – many wearing the group’s “Jewish honour guard” T-shirts – protested noisily outside the wedding of a Palestinian man and a female Jewish convert to Islam in the city of Jaffa, near Tel Aviv. Some carried placards with the slogan: “Miscegenation is a Holocaust”.

Jerusalem’s streets, meanwhile, are littered with fliers and stickers in Arabic warning, “Don’t even think about a Jewish girl” and in Hebrew stating, “Beware the goys [a derogatory term for non-Jews] – they will defile you”. 

Lehava’s hardcore supporters number in the hundreds, according to the Religious Action Centre, the advocacy arm of the Reform Judaism movement, which filmed the testimonies. But it believes Gopstein can draw on the open support of thousands more.

David Sheen, an Israeli journalist who has reported on far-right groups for many years, told Al Jazeera:

“Lehava’s aim is to rile up Jewish youth on the streets, to create a strike force that can help ethnically cleanse Palestinians from the main areas of Jerusalem.”

Others worry about the wider effect of Lehava’s incitement on the climate of popular opinion in Israel.

Aviv Tartasky, a field researcher with Ir Amim, an Israeli group advocating fair treatment for Palestinians in Jerusalem, told Al Jazeera:

“The idea of rescuing Jewish women from Arabs – bringing them back to Judaism – has wide support from Israelis, including from the left. The attitude among most Israeli Jews is that, even if we don’t support your methods, your violence, we approve of your goals.”

When contacted by Al Jazeera, Gopstein declined to talk. However, in a speech last year he called for “action” to stop coexistence, calling it a “dangerous cancer”. Lehava leaders were all formerly active in Kach, an anti-Arab group that was outlawed in 1994 after one of its followers, Baruch Goldstein, shot 29 Palestinians at worship in Hebron’s Ibrahimi mosque.

Last month, Gopstein attended a memorial event in Jerusalem for Kach’s founder, Rabbi Meir Kahane. At the rally, he waved a cleaning rag with the face of Lucy Aharish, the only prominent TV presenter from Israel’s Palestinian minority, saying he would wash the floor with her. He added: “She compared me to Hamas. So we’ll make her nightmare come true”.

Gopstein, who lives in Kiryat Arba, an Israeli settlement next to the Palestinian city of Hebron in the West Bank, was a student of Kahane. He was arrested in 1990 on suspicion of murdering a Palestinian couple, in what appeared to be retaliation for Kahane’s assassination, but was later released.

Before its banning, Kach openly supported the violent expulsion of Palestinians from the region under the slogan: “Arabs to the Arab states and Jews to Zion”. Like Lehava, one of its main activities was preventing mixing between Jews and Palestinians.

Sheen said Lehava had created “an instantly recognizable brand that is all about racial purity. This is just a new version of Kach. They can’t use the same slogans without breaking the law, but the similarities are unmistakable.” He noted that both organizations used the same colors of black and yellow in their emblems – Kach’s was a fist, while Lehava uses a flame.

“When Kach existed in the 1980s, it was seen as so racist that it was likened to the Nazis and boycotted by other parties in the parliament. It was seen as beyond the pale,” said Sheen. “Now it’s in the mainstream. It even has supporters in the Likud party [of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu] who are happy to whitewash it.”

Yehuda Glick, a far-right activist close to Gopstein, who demands the replacement of al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem with a Jewish temple, became a Likud member of parliament in May. Lehava’s ties with Kach were evident during the summer, when the group hosted a series of training camps in the southern West Bank to teach young people martial arts.

Assisting Gopstein were Itamar Ben Gvir and Noam Federman, two former leaders of the banned movement, who tutored the young men and women in techniques for withstanding police interrogations.

As Lehava’s supporters have grown in numbers and confidence, large parts of Jerusalem’s city centre have rapidly become a no-go area for Palestinians after dark. The victims, as well as human rights groups and religious leaders, have complained that the Israeli police are turning a blind eye to the wave of intimidation and violence.

“There are racist lynch mobs roaming the streets of Jerusalem, driven by a hatred of Arabs, and the police are showing no interest in investigating,” Steven Beck, a spokesman for the Israel Religious Action Centre, told Al Jazeera. The centre, which promotes equality and social justice in Israel, video recorded the testimonies of Lehava’s victims as part of a campaign called “Lehava is Burning Jerusalem”. It warns: “Jewish terror is not created out of thin air. It is fueled by ideological incitement and hatred that is spread by extremist rabbis.”

“H”, who was assaulted twice this year, filed a complaint with the police after he was knifed in the back and shoulder by a Lehava gang. “Until now, no action has been taken,” he said. “The police are with them, covering for them.”

Another victim, Jamal Julani was left in a coma by a Lehava group in 2012, when he was 17. Investigators told him none of the security cameras were working in the area of the assault, even though it took place close to two banks. “How that’s possible? I don’t understand,” he said. “There are maybe 10 cameras there. How did none of them work?”

Like others, “H” said he had been left emotionally, as well as physically, scarred. Fearful of further attacks, he said: “Now, I’m scared to go out alone. Even if I try to fight back, everyone will shout, ‘Terrorist, terrorist’. If a policeman is passing by and sees the incident … I’ll be the one who gets shot.”

The 300,000 Palestinians of East Jerusalem, which Israel annexed after 1967 in violation of international law, have residency permits that entitle them to live and work in Israel. Many travel into Jerusalem’s city center for the nightlife and shopping not available in their own deprived neighborhoods, or to work in Jewish-owned restaurants and shops.

This is when many of the attacks occur, with Lehava claiming that the Palestinian men use the visits to consort with Jewish women.

Calls for the outlawing of Lehava have grown since three followers were found guilty last year of an arson attack on Jerusalem’s only binational school, for Jewish and Palestinian children. The three walls were daubed with racist slogans, such as “End miscegenation” and “No coexistence with cancer”.

Early last year, Moshe Yaalon, then defense minister, was reported to be considering outlawing Lehava. By August, however, the Shin Bet, Israel’s domestic intelligence service, said it had no evidence on which to recommend banning the group. The current defense minister, Avigdor Lieberman, of the far-right Yisrael Beiteinu party, is considered unlikely to try to curb Lehava’s activities.

Meanwhile, Lehava has called for boycotts of city businesses that hire Palestinian workers. Critics say the group also intimidates landlords who rent to Palestinian families. Dan Biron, owner of the Birman restaurant in central Jerusalem, said Palestinians among his staff had been attacked on four separate occasions.

One time, he said, a mob came to his restaurant demanding that he hand over Palestinian workers. “Send them out so we can kill them,” he recalled. He stood his ground until they left. “There is anarchy in Jerusalem. The police do not enforce the law here,” he said. “There are serious criminals who wander around freely, criminals who beat up people, and the police do nothing.”

The city’s Christians have found themselves increasingly targeted, too.

Last December, Lehava’s Gopstein called Christians “blood-sucking vampires” and demanded they be expelled from Israel. A few months earlier he told a meeting he supported torching churches to prevent “idol worship”. Church leaders suspect Lehava supporters are behind a recent wave of vandalism against Christian sites in Jerusalem and intimidation of priests and nuns.

Dozens of Lehava youths, led by Gopstein, rioted in September at a performance by a Palestinian Armenian choir at a music festival in a Jerusalem shopping mall. The singers were forced to leave after the youths shouted “Jew murderers!” and “Go to Syria!”.

The Vatican filed a complaint last year on behalf of local bishops to Israel’s attorney general, demanding that Gopstein be indicted for incitement to violence.

Wadie Abu Nassar, spokesman for the Latin Patriarch in Jerusalem, told Al Jazeera the Israeli authorities had not responded. “Gopstein is continuously saying racist and inciteful things in public, so one has to wonder why no measures have been taken against him. He seems immune.”

He added: “There is a clear backing among members of this government for far-right groups like Lehava.”

Despite its inciteful rhetoric and connections to attacks, Lehava has in the past received significant funding from the Israeli government – as much as $180,000 annually through a sister charity, Hemla. The latter runs a hostel in Jerusalem for the “rehabilitation” of Jewish women “saved” from marriages to Palestinians.

The Israeli media revealed this month that funding to Hemla this year has nearly doubled, to $350,000. Gopstein formally severed Lehava’s connections to Hemla two years ago. However, the registrar of non-governmental organizations is reported to have warned that secret ties between the two may have continued and has recommended an investigation.

There have also been suspicions of close ties between Israeli police and Lehava. They were fuelled in February when it emerged, following an investigation of Gopstein’s activities, that a Border Police officer had supplied the group with details of Jewish women dating Palestinian men.

Tartasky, of Ir Amim, told Al Jazeera: “The dominant culture in the police regards the Palestinians as not proper residents of the city. The police see their role as defending Jews from Palestinians, not the other way around.”

He said Jerusalem’s politicians also contributed to an impression that Palestinians had no place in the city.

“The mayor [Nir Barkat] has not made a single statement against Lehava, even though they are inciting and carrying out regular attacks in the heart of his city. That has sent a clear message that Lehava has protection.”

That impression was underscored by statements from Barkat’s deputy, Meir Turgeman, in September, following the arrest of a Jerusalem resident, Mesbah Abu Sabih, on suspicion of killing two Israelis. Turgeman said he would “punish” the Palestinian population of East Jerusalem for their “animal behavior … There are no carrots left, only sticks”.

Micky Rosenfeld, a police spokesman, denied that the police were failing to take Lehava’s violence seriously. “There has been a significant rise in the number of patrols in the centre of Jerusalem to prevent such incidents,” he told Al Jazeera. He added that the police were “dispersing” gangs of Lehava youth as soon as they were identified.

The legal authorities have been accused of failing to rein in Lehava, too. Beck said the Religious Action Centre had submitted 25 complaints to the attorney general against Gopstein for incitement but had not received a response. In April, a Jerusalem judge ruled that Gopstein had made an “honest mistake” in beating up two left-wing Jewish activists when they entered a West Bank settlement.

Gopstein claimed he had believed they were Palestinians. Video footage showed Israeli police arresting the two victims rather than Gopstein. One of Lehava’s public services is a hotline so that Israeli Jews can inform on family or friends who are dating non-Jews. Beck said: “Lehava has perpetuated a lie that thousands of Jewish women are being held against their will by Palestinians in abusive marriages. It stokes hatred and incites followers to violence.”

In reality, official figures show that only a tiny number of marriages between Israeli Jews and Palestinians occur. In 2011, the year for which official figures were released, there were only 19 such marriages. Nonetheless, the group has quickly pushed miscegenation on to the political agenda. Back in 2011, Gopstein was invited by Tzipi Hotovely, now the acting foreign minister, to advise a parliamentary committee set up to investigate the issue.

And, in recent months, the education ministry has banned two famous Hebrew novels depicting relationships between a Jew and an Arab from the school curriculum. Polls indicate that that Lehava’s playing up of a supposed miscegenation threat from Palestinians resonates with many Israeli Jews. A survey from 2007 found that more than half believed intermarriage between Jews and Palestinians were “treason”.

In 2013, similar numbers said they wanted Palestinians, including those with Israeli citizenship, expelled from the region. However, some Israeli Jews in Jerusalem have started to fight back against Lehava. Since 2014, a group named “Talking in the Square” has been organising counter-demonstrations in Zion Square, where Lehava stages a weekly rally.

One of their activists, Ossnat Sharon, said they tried to “keep an eye on [Lehava], curbing their attempts at violence as best we can.” Tartasky said Lehava’s rapid growth in popularity should be seen in part as “a backlash” to the greater presence of Palestinians in central Jerusalem in recent years.

Palestinians were venturing into the city centre in bigger numbers, he said, because their own neighbourhoods had been cut off from nearby Ramallah and other Palestinian cities of the West Bank by Israel’s completion of its so-called separation barrier.

Better public transport links after Israel opened its light rail system have also contributed to the trend of Palestinians seeking work and entertainment in Jerusalem’s city centre. “Lehava’s growth indicates how uncomfortable some Israelis have become with seeing Palestinians in what they consider to be their city,” he said. “It has given them a sense of grievance and increased their extremism.”

Trump

Israel, Palestinians Prepare For Trump Era

If Trump does leave the Palestinian issue to the EU, this will be without a doubt the beginning of WWIII and the fulfillment of the Illuminati plan  – the war between Zionism and Islam. The question is, can Trump be that ignorant? or is his intention to push the world into a war? Let’s not forget that he also promised to move the capital of Israhell to Jerusalem and that alone will get Islam on fire. 

Trump

“Israel, Palestinians prepare for Trump era,” Source: al-monitor.com

Shock and dismay prevailed among the leadership of the Palestinian Authority (PA) following Donald Trump’s election. During the US election campaign, most of the Palestinian official spokespeople claimed that Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were equally bad news for Palestinian interests. Yet beyond these claims, there was a clear preference for Secretary Clinton, out of the belief that she could engage with the international community on a two-state solution process. Trump’s election victory shattered any hope of such prospects.

A senior PLO official told Al-Monitor on condition of anonymity that Trump’s victory is a historic turning point for the Palestinian leadership. He said,

“Donald Trump and his entourage have expressed views that endorse [Prime Minister] Benjamin Netanyahu and [Education Minister] Naftali Bennett’s annexation ideology. The only state a President Trump would be willing to approve would be a binational one. We will not engage in a diplomatic process with the Trump administration unless it recognizes Palestinian statehood on the 1967 lines.”

The senior official told Al-Monitor that the leadership is convening on an ongoing basis to explore a Palestinian national strategy adapted to this new situation. The premises for developing this strategy are numerous. The Palestinians believe that the United States under Trump will not lead a realistic international effort on a two-state solution. It may instead give a tacit green light to Israel to continue much of its settlement policies and the de facto annexation of Area C. The source explained that they foresee Russia becoming a more relevant player in the region, given the prospects of a good Trump-Vladimir Putin relationship. Also, with Brussels, Paris, and Berlin increasingly concerned about a tacit agreement by Washington for Netanyahu to continue his settlement expansion policy, the role of the European Union in that respect may be enhanced. The source noted that initial positive rapport between Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and Trump could signal a significant role for Sisi on the Palestinian issue.

The senior Palestinian official believes that, in this situation, the Palestinian political equation may tilt more in favor of hard-line Hamas and that West Bank public opinion will grow more desperate and angry. A violent uprising cannot be ruled out in such a situation.

And so the Palestinian leadership will focus its statehood battle in three arenas: the Arab League, the UN Security Council and on the ground (vis-a-vis Israeli annexation policies).

Concerning the Arab League, the Palestinian leadership will, in coordination with Egypt, propose an all-Arab alliance (diplomatic and otherwise) for making the year 2017 the year that ends 50 years of occupation. Egypt will relay this message of Arab unity to the international community, including the new Trump administration. In Palestinian eyes, Egypt will again play its traditional role as the main backer of the Palestinian cause on the international scene, especially after the change of administration in Washington.

Egypt, most probably together with France, will advance a Security Council resolution defining all Israeli settlements east of the Green Line as illegal and demanding that Israel freeze all settlement building. In parallel, there will be a call to the parties to renew permanent status negotiations on the basis of the 1967 lines with East Jerusalem as the Palestinian capital. The Palestinians are sure that the Americans will veto such a proposal, but they also feel that such a resolution proposal could isolate the United States and Israel in the international arena.

On the ground, the PA will closely monitor all Israeli settlement construction, economic annexation measures and human rights violations in order to report them to the International Court of Justice in The Hague. In parallel, Palestinian security forces stand ready in case a popular uprising (intifada) erupts.

In general, the new strategy, as described to Al-Monitor by the senior PLO official, is to isolate Israel and the United States in the international community and to allow greater civil (non-violent) protest in the West Bank during this 50th year of the occupation.

A senior Israeli Foreign Ministry official told Al-Monitor that this time the ministry is taking the Palestinian warning of an intifada more seriously than before. Their assessment is that growing Palestinian frustration is currently directed against President Mahmoud Abbas, and that a possible intifada in 2017 will be directed more against the Palestinian leadership than against Israel.

Israel, said the source, will counter the Palestinian diplomatic offensive by closely coordinating its moves vis-a-vis the Palestinian issue with the new Trump administration before and during the planned meeting between Netanyahu and Trump. Much as the Palestinians believe, the Netanyahu government is hoping to get a US green light for settlement expansion according to the natural growth of the population there and mainly within the settlement blocs. In opposition to the Palestinian diplomatic offensive, Israel will ask for a US commitment to veto any anti-Israel resolution at the Security Council and for the United States to block any Quartet (EU, United Nations, United States and Russia) initiative determining permanent status frameworks.

And so, both on the Palestinian and the Israeli sides, the lines have been redrawn for a new diplomatic battle in the aftermath of a Trump election.

Israeli PM Netanyahu Considering Putin’s Offer to Host Palestine Talks in Moscow

Israel has NO right to exist on someone else’s land, that is a fact. The second fact is that the whole ‘meeting’ is a scam and a huge lie to make the brainwashed masses believe there is an ‘intention’ for peace when the only REAL intention is to erase not only Palestine but as many countries as they can possibly get their hands on off the map. The fact that they will meet in Moscow is another RED FLAG. 

What has Russia a Communist country have to do with all of this?! Israel should be sanctioned and brought to justice for its CRIMES. All of this is more food for the idiot that believes there is a ‘peaceful’ way with these people. 

Netanyahu

Benjamin Netanyahu is considering Russia’s offer to host Israeli-Palestinian talks in Moscow, a statement from the Israeli PM’s press service said.

[Netanyahu] presented Israel’s position whereby he is always ready to meet [Abbas] without preconditions and is therefore considering the Russian president’s proposal and the timing for a possible meeting,” the statement reads, as cited by Reuters news agency.

The statement came after Netanyahu held talks with Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister and Special Envoy to the Middle East, Mikhail Bogdanov.

If agreed upon, the talks would be the first between the two leaders in several years, amid the ongoing rift in the region.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said there is currently no agreement regarding the talks.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has accepted an offer to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Moscow, though the exact date of the meeting is yet to be determined, Palestinian Ambassador to Moscow Abdel Hafiz Nofal told RIA Novosti on Monday.

“There is an agreement in principle to meet in Moscow, however, there are still some points that need to be settled. There is no information available about the timing of the meeting,” the ambassador said.

Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki said that he doubts Netanyahu is ready to fulfill the conditions needed for the talks to take place. Israel must stop building settlements in the West Bank, as well as release a number of Palestinian detainees, he said.

In this framework we do not oppose holding the meeting […] between Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Benjamin Netanyahu under the aegis of Russia. But it seems to us that Netanyahu is not currently ready for such a step,” al-Maliki said, according to Al Ayam newspaper, as cited by Sputnik.

Peace talks between Israel and Palestine have been at a standstill since the last US efforts collapsed two years ago. Parties failed to come to concessions after Abbas forged an unexpected unity pact with rival Hamas, which Israel views as a terrorist organization that doesn’t recognize Israel’s right to exist.

COMMENTARY: Israel Using Basic Needs To Blackmail Palestinians

While the United States is calling Americans’ to leave Gaza because they KNOW that Israel will escalate this opportunity, Israel is blaming Hamas and Salafists who they say have aligned with ISIS and have been responsible for the rocket fire. We already know who is behind ISIS, so this could very well be a set-up, and since people are too busy going about their daily lives, the world continues to be re-shaped to Israel’s desire. 

Israel is also using Palestinians basic need to blackmail them, hasn’t this been their strategy all along?

More than a dozen Israeli human rights organizations are condemning Israel’s attacks and smears against humanitarian aid agencies in Gaza.

Meanwhile, Israel’s defense minister has announced a plan to use basic humanitarian needs to blackmail Palestinians in the occupied West Bank into submitting quietly to Israeli military rule.

The human rights groups, including Adalah, B’Tselem, Gisha and Physicians for Human Rights-Israel, “urge the Israeli government to refrain from impeding the activities of these organizations, and to avoid vilifying the vital work of the aid community.”

Their statement comes after Israel arrested officials from two international agencies in Gaza, accusing them of helping the military resistance wing of Hamas.

“On the basis of these indictments, Israeli authorities have made sweeping, far-reaching and irresponsible allegations claiming that humanitarian operations in the Gaza Strip as a whole are connected to Hamas and serve the organization,” the Israeli human rights groups said.

They added that even if the two men were guilty as accused, “this will not detract from the importance, integrity and dedication of international humanitarian organizations assisting residents of the Gaza Strip.”

Many of the nearly 1.9 million Palestinians in Gaza depend on humanitarian aid because of the devastation to the territory’s economy after three successive Israeli military assaults and a decade-long Israeli siege.

Dubious accusations

In June, Israel detained the Gaza director of global Christian aid and development charity World Vision, interrogated him for more than 50 days and then charged him with diverting up to $50 million to the military wing of Hamas.

Mohammad El Halabi’s detention only came to light earlier this month.

Halabi’s lawyers have said he was tortured and prevented from seeing an attorney for three weeks.

World Vision leaders have pointed out that the Israeli accusations fly in the face of the facts: the group’s entire budget in Gaza over the last decade was about $22.5 million – less than half the amount Israel claims Halabi, who had limited control over funds, diverted in just six years.

The UN development agency UNDP also revealed that Israel had detained one of its employees in Gaza, accusing him of providing rubble to Hamas for use in construction.

Israeli officials then launched a full-scale smear campaign against aid agencies working in Gaza, accusing them of supporting “terrorism.”

Targeting aid

Israel’s accusations against World Vision and other groups have been picked up by its apologists in an effort to cut off humanitarian aid to Gaza altogether.

Writing in The Jewish Chronicle, anti-Palestinian commentator Melanie Phillips argued that Western government financing for UNRWA, the UN agency for Palestine refugees, as well as groups like World Vision, Save the Children and Oxfam, amounted to funding the “mass murder” of Jews.

Senator Marco Rubio, the failed US Republican presidential candidate, sent a letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry demanding what could amount to a government witch hunt against those who support Palestinians.

“I urge you to investigate every allegation and use all resources to ensure American taxpayer dollars as well as individual private donations of Americans are not being used to fund terrorism,” Rubio wrote.

In the meantime, he urged the administration to “suspend all US assistance to Gaza until a review of the controls in place to prevent a diversion of funds can occur.”

“Carrot and stick”

Last week, Israeli defense minister Avigdor Lieberman announced a new “carrot and stick” policy that amounts to depriving Palestinians of basic needs unless they willingly submit to occupation.

This is another demonstration that Israel sees resources for humanitarian needs as weapons to subdue the Palestinians who live under its military rule.

According to Israel’s Ynet, areas from where there is no “terrorism,” as Israel terms any form of Palestinian resistance, will be allowed to build hospitals, kindergartens and other basic infrastructure.

But villages that have “bred many terrorists” will be subjected to “heavy security,” amounting to the already ongoing policy of collective punishment, which is illegal under the Fourth Geneva Convention that governs Israel’s occupation.

Only allowing Palestinian communities to meet their basic needs as long as no one resists also looks like a clear violation of international law.

As the International Committee of the Red Cross notes, the Fourth Geneva Convention requires that, “To the fullest extent of the means available to it, the occupying power must ensure sufficient hygiene and public health standards, as well as the provision of food and medical care to the population under occupation.”

New “village leagues”?

Lieberman’s intention, according to Tel Aviv newspaper Haaretz, is to bypass the Palestinian Authority, talk to Palestinians “directly” and “cut out the middlemen.”

“If there are intellectuals, academics, outstanding municipal officials – why should they talk to us through Mahmoud Abbas?” Lieberman asked.

Ahmed Majdalani, an aide to PA leader Mahmoud Abbas, and a member of the Palestine Liberation Organization’s executive committee, compared Lieberman’s plans to the short-lived “village leagues” of the late 1970s and early 1980s.

Israel armed and funded these collaborationist bodies in the West Bank to act as “representatives” of the population after dismissing elected mayors who were affiliated with the PLO.

The aim of the village leagues was to bypass the PLO, which at that time Israel saw as a threat and an enemy.

But since the Oslo accords of the early 1990s, the PLO, whose bureaucracy and resources were effectively transferred over to the PA, has become Israel’s partner in administering the occupation.

Despite Lieberman’s routine bluster against Abbas, Israel continues to rely on the PA to suppress any Palestinian resistance – a policy known as “security coordination.”

This close relationship involves PA security agencies collaborating with Israel to arrest and torture Palestinians.

Despite near universal Palestinian rejection of it, Abbas has called the close relationship with the occupation “sacred.”

Lieberman is optimistic indeed if he thinks he can find Palestinians any more willing to do Israel’s bidding than the PA.

Using Palestinians and mainly children as human shields is, WITHOUT DOUBT, EVIL. The Satanic atrocities that Israel is carrying out in the Middle East cannot continue to be ignored by the masses, American politicians have sold themselves to the devil in exchange for money and power. According to the Talmud, ‘the best among the gentiles deserves to be killed’. If this is their belief, it is clear that Jews want the genocide of all non-Jews AND THAT IS EXACTLY THEIR GOAL.

We have been seeing what they have done to Palestinians ever since the Jews set foot on Palestinian land, you know who is next on their list? all those who are not jews and that means you and me. They call it ‘cleansing’. Jews created the French Revolution, Jews created World War 1, Jews created World War II and Jews are pushing for World War III by creating and funding ISIS and using the Muslim world as a human shield.  Learn once and for all, who your enemy is. Jews are the sons of Satan.

COMMENTARY: Missing From The Debate – U.S. Aid To Israel

Israel wants money to continue funding ISIS along with all their other dirty wars. They are ‘fighting’ to have absolute control of the Goyim. Both demagogue traitors Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are blindly backing these evil masters while they claim they will defend America against the ‘enemy’ against ‘terrorism’. When will Americans realize that the enemy lives amongst us and that they are funding it with their hard earned tax dollars?

Israeli Defense Forces

“Missing from the Debate: U.S. Aid to Israel – FPIF,” Source:  fpif.org

Some Yiddish words will live forever, and chutzpah is one of them. What better word could describe Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s demand for more U.S. aid after he tried to obstruct President Obama’s nuclear agreement with Iran with a personal appeal to the Senate? But don’t expect aid to Israel to be a campaign topic. Both candidates favor it.

The U.S. and Israel have been bargaining since early July over a proposed ten-year U.S. aid package to Israel. The U.S. is offering Israel $40 billion in aid over that period, an increase of $10 billion a year, which the White House called “the largest pledge of military assistance to any country in U.S. history.” But that amount is not enough for the Israelis, who are demanding more.

For a recipient to bargain with a donor over the size of a handout is unusual enough, but Israel has received more U.S. aid over the years than any other nation in the world, despite having one of the highest per capita incomes in the Middle East. Israel has also benefited from its exemption from the rule that recipients of U.S. military aid must spend the money on American-made weapons.

The Israelis have nevertheless felt free to reject requests from Washington whenever it suits them. Every president since Jimmy Carter has asked Israel to freeze settlement construction, saying the settlements were an obstacle to peace. Israel has continued to build and expand settlements while objections from Washington have faded into silence. As long as this situation remains, however, there can be no peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians.

A powerful effort by the U.S. and its allies is needed to change the current situation, but Israel’s well-funded American supporters have so far been able to stave off any attempt to pressure Israel. Defenders of what President Obama calls America’s “special relationship” with Israel frequently describe the Jewish state as the only democracy in the Middle East, and claim it is surrounded by potential enemies. Today, 50 years after Israel’s establishment, that description no longer fits the facts.

With the fifth largest military in the Middle East, and firm backing from the U.S., Israel no longer faces danger from its Arab neighbors. For the 2 million or so Palestinians who make up some 40 percent of the population, Israel is a flawed democracy at best, one in which they are second-class citizens. For the more than 4 million Palestinians living in Israeli-occupied Gaza and the West Bank, Israel is an oppressor nation.

After capturing the West Bank from Jordan, and Gaza from Egypt, in the 1967 war, Israel proceeded to build Jewish settlements in the newly occupied territories despite the fact that the Geneva Conventions of 1945 specifically forbid a conquering nation to build civilian settlements on captive territory. Since then the U.N. Security Council has passed numerous resolutions condemning Israel’s continued settlement construction and calling for its withdrawal from the West Bank and Gaza. The U.S. cast a veto each time.

At Oslo in 1993, Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin signed an agreement with Palestinian president Yasir Arafat in which he pledged to freeze settlement building in the occupied territories and make it easier for Palestinians to travel between Gaza and the West Bank. The agreement held out a promise that the Palestinians could soon establish an independent state in the West Bank and Gaza.

But the Oslo agreement was never implemented. The massacre of 29 Palestinians in Hebron by a Jewish settler in February 1994, followed by a round-the-clock curfew on Palestinians in that city, ignited often violent Palestinian resistance. Israel’s response was harsh and indiscriminate, involving pre-dawn house raids and arrests on the West Bank, targeted assassinations, border closings, travel restrictions and the placing of hundreds of new check points throughout the West Bank. Rabin’s assassination by a right-wing Israeli in November 1995 marked the effective end of Oslo.

Since then the cycle of Israeli oppression and Palestinian violence has continued, with periods of violence alternating with periods of uneasy calm. Several negotiating sessions between Israel and the Palestinians brokered by the U.S. have faltered, doomed by the great imbalance of power between the two sides and by Washington’s refusal to intervene in behalf of the Palestinians.

Gaza meanwhile has endured repeated Israeli air strikes and three full-scale invasions by Israel troops, along with a nine-year blockade that Israel imposed in 2007 after the Gazans elected a Hamas-led government. As a result of Israel’s actions, that densely populated territory has seen the collapse of its economy and a broken infrastructure. Homes, schools and public buildings destroyed or damaged by Israel bombing have yet to be rebuilt, and a majority of Gazans now rely on United Nations handouts to survive.

On the West Bank, meanwhile, hundreds of new homes for Israelis are under construction. Earlier this month, State Department spokesman John Kirby described Israel’s latest authorization of new settler housing as “fundamentally undermining the prospects for a two-state solution.” In fact, the prospects for a two-state solution had already faded. The number of settler homes has steadily increased over the years, so that today 600,000 Israelis live in the West Bank, and thanks to government subsidies more are moving in.

The territory is crisscrossed by highways intended for settler use only and barred to Palestinians. Netanyahu declared after Israel’s last election that there would be no Palestinian state on his watch, and several members of his government  have openly declared their opposition to a two-state solution. According to Deputy Prime Minister Tsipi Hotovely, “God willed all of Palestine to Israel. This land is ours.”

Such statements issuing from a close ally of the West undoubtedly arouse anger in the Arab world and may even influence the handful of young Arab immigrants to Europe who turn to violence. Yet Israel’s continuing occupation is seldom mentioned in public discourse, and it’s a safe bet that it won’t be a prominent issue in the race between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Consequently, an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement based on two independent states will remain a distant hope, and American taxpayers will continue subsidizing a military occupation that deprives millions of
Palestinians of their freedom.

 

 

Bibi Backs The Blockade

Netanyahu Vows to Continue Gaza Blockade After Turkey Deal

Meanwhile, a Turkish official said Turkey’s Prime Minister Binali Yildirim is scheduled to talk about the deal in Ankara on Monday.

Yildirim has confirmed that the two sides will exchange ambassadors after the agreement is formally signed on Tuesday.

According to Yildirim, Israel will pay USD 20 million in compensation to the families of the victims of the raid on the Turkish aid ship.

Where did Bibi get that 20 million USD? And, Erdogan has just proved to the world his pro-Zionist nature. Just last week he received the leader of Hamas and now he is best friends with Bibi. What a hypocrite he is, and some say, even a crypto Jew.

Israeli Premier Benjamin Netanyahu says the existing maritime blockade on the Palestinian Gaza Strip will remain in place following a deal with Turkey on the normalization of Ankara-Tel Aviv ties.

Netanyahu told a news briefing in the Italian capital of Rome on Monday that Israel-Turkey agreement will end a six-year rift between the two sides.

“The second thing the agreement gives is continuation of the maritime security blockade off the Gaza Strip coast,” Netanyahu added, noting, “This is a supreme security interest for us. I was not prepared to compromise on it.”

On Sunday, officials from both sides reached the accord to normalize their diplomatic ties which were severed six years ago in the wake of a deadly Israeli raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla.

Israeli commandos attacked the Freedom Flotilla in international waters in the Mediterranean Sea on May 31, 2010, killing nine Turkish citizens and injuring about 50 other people. A tenth Turkish national later succumbed to the injuries sustained in the raid.

Ankara reacted with fury, suspending its military ties with Israel and expelling the Israeli envoy from Ankara in September 2010 over Tel Aviv’s refusal to apologize for the killings.

However, Turkey gradually engaged in not-so-public talks with the Israeli regime to mend ties. Since last December, the two sides have held several rounds of talks aimed at restoring the tense bilateral ties.

The United States was reportedly pushing the two sides to resolve the dispute. Netanyahu traveled to the Italian capital, Rome, where negotiations are said to have been held, to meet US Secretary of State John Kerry.

Among Turkey’s key conditions for the reconciliation accord with Israel were an apology and compensations, which are said to have been largely met. However, the main hurdle to the agreement is reported to be the lifting of Israel’s blockade on the Gaza Strip.

The deal is set to go before Israel’s so-called security cabinet for approval on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, a Turkish official said Turkey’s Prime Minister Binali Yildirim is scheduled to talk about the deal in Ankara on Monday.

Yildirim has confirmed that the two sides will exchange ambassadors after the agreement is formally signed on Tuesday.

According to Yildirim, Israel will pay USD 20 million in compensation to the families of the victims of the raid on the Turkish aid ship.

Netanyahu has hailed the rapprochement with Turkey, describing it as an important step.

He said the normalization of ties will have a positive impact on Israel’s economy, adding, “It (the deal) has also immense implications for the Israeli economy, and I use that word advisedly.”

Gaza has been blockaded since 2007, a situation that has caused a decline in the standard of living, unprecedented levels of unemployment, and unrelenting poverty.

The apartheid regime of Israel denies about 1.8 million people in Gaza their basic rights, including freedom of movement, proper job, and adequate healthcare and education.
