Netanyahu

PM Authorized To Declare War In ‘Extreme’ Situations Without Consulting Cabinet

Interesting to see how Netanyahu and Putin ‘leaders of the Satanic NWO’, continue in power ruling over their ‘respective democracies’. Now Bibi is authorized to declare war only during an ‘extreme’ situation. The only extreme situation is the dangerous POWER and CONTROL they already have over the world and their mindset on killing the Goyim.

In a surprise and potentially far-reaching victory for Benjamin Netanyahu, the Knesset on Monday evening gave the prime minister the authority to declare war or order a major military operation by consulting only the defense minister, and not via a full cabinet vote as the law had previously required.
Sixty-two Knesset members voted the dramatic proposal into law, beating out the 41 opposition MKs who opposed it claiming that the language of the law effectively gives free reign to the prime minister by removing all oversight. According to the new law, in “extreme circumstances,” military operations can be authorized by the prime minister and defense minister alone and will not need a vote by cabinet ministers. The law does not specify exactly what those circumstances may be, or who will determine them, saying only that the case will apply, “if the issue is necessary due to urgency.”

The proposal — advanced by Netanyahu since last year — had been rejected earlier in the day by members of two key Knesset committees: Law and Justice, and Foreign Affairs and Defense. It was resubmitted, however, by Likud member and Foreign Affairs and Defense committee chairman Avi Dichter during the second and third readings of a broader amendment and was voted into law as part of that wider legislation.

That wider amendment allows the government to delegate the authority for going to war under normal circumstances, or mobilizing for a major military operation, to a forum made up of “at least half” of all cabinet ministers.

Some eight years ago, Netanyahu and then-defense minister Ehud Barak instructed the chief of staff and head of the Mossad intelligence service to put the army into a state of readiness, only to be told by the latter two that the relevant activity was illegal because it had not been properly approved and could lead to war.

There have, however, been numerous occasions where decisions of a similar nature have been taken by just the Security Cabinet, a smaller forum of ministers tasked with forming policy regarding war and peace, or other smaller forums of ministers.

A committee set up in 2016 under a former National Security Adviser, Major General (res.) Yaakov Amidror, to examine the functioning of the security cabinet and the way it informs and updates ministers, recommended bringing the law into line with what he said had become the “normal practice.” In June last year, the cabinet voted in favor of amending the law.

Two opposition lawmakers — Zionist Union’s Omer Bar Lev, an IDF reserve officer with the rank of colonel and a former commander of the elite unit Sayeret Matkal, and Yesh Atid’s Ofer Shelah, a company commander in the reserve Paratroopers Brigade who lost an eye during the 1982 Lebanon War — warned the committees that the wording of the new legislation could enable the prime minister to exclude lawmakers who opposed a military operation and to bring such an operation to a vote in their absence.

They also said that allowing the prime minister and defense minister to decide when a situation is considered “extreme circumstances” would give them full power to go to war without any oversight.

Shelah later charged that coalition members voted “against their own opinions, in the matter of life and death” because of pressure from Netanyahu

“Netanyahu’s contempt for everyone around him and for everything we’ve learned from our many wars has overtaken the judgment of many good and experienced Knesset members,” he said.

The Israel Democracy Institute submitted a series of reservations to the committees about the bill, including requiring the approval of the prime minister, deputy prime minister and ministers of several key departments and suggesting defining which military activities needed cabinet approval and which did not. None of the institute’s recommendations was accepted.

Despite unsuccessfully opposing the bill in the Knesset, opposition parties told The Times of Israel Monday night that there were no current plans to petition against it in the High Court.

How can any real, patriotic American stoop to such a baseless level? Indeed, a traitor beyond epic proportions.
And, now it is official that the US Embassy will move to Jerusalem soon. God help us Goyim — WW3 is on the horizon.

COMMENTARY: Israel Not Only Supports But Applauds The Dismembering of Spain

Who can doubt at this point in time that the Jews are behind the so-called ‘independence of Catalunya’. There is no way they could have so much economic and media power if it weren’t for their ‘friends in crime’ from Israel. What we are seeing happening in Spain is the work of Communism. Do NOT let anyone tell you differently.

“Israel not only supports but applauds the dismembering of Spain,” Source: alertadigital.com 

Google translation of the original article posted below:

By Saiid Alami * / (R) .- The patriarch of CiU (currently PDeCAT) in Spanish democracy, Jordi Pujol, has never hidden the predilection he has always felt for Zionism. Pujol told me at a meeting with journalists held in Barcelona during the preparations for the 1992 Summer Olympics that he felt Zionist. And he said it defiantly, without being asked, and knowing that among the journalists present we were a large group of Arab media correspondents that had arrived from Madrid.

More than 15 years after that meeting of Arab journalists with Pujol, on October 28, 2007, Pujol appeared before his Zionist masters in the Israeli Knesset and delivered a servile speech that oozed submission to his patrons, who are the owners and of Wall Street. This Spanish reduced in size version of Berlusconi of the decade of the 80’s, occupied the position of president of the Generalitat, triumphed as banker to later fail, in the 80’s (that Banca Catalana, disappeared in 1984)

Phrases such as: “The basic idea of being the chosen people, I think, has been a very powerful factor for the people of Israel” and another: “Having the conscience of a chosen people – chosen by God – “Give an idea of the adulation done by this man who works for Zionism, insisted and emphasized that the Jews are a chosen people” by God “, which he repeated several times throughout his intervention.

This can be understood as that Pujol recognizes that the people of Catalonia, the rest of Spain and the rest of the world are “vile” compared to the “people” of Israel. Would Pujol or Artur Mas (former president of the Catalan Generalitat) dare to stand before the people of Catalonia and say: “Catalans, recognize once and for all that you are a people of much less rank than the people of Israel …. do you deserve my admiration? “ Do you dare the separatist leaders who both cackle their admiration for Zionism and for Israel to say that same in speeches before the Catalans? Do they dare to acknowledge to their Catalan voters, who have been deceived for decades, that they are actually Zionists and therefore put Israel’s interests above the interests of the Catalans, as is the case with all Zionists in the West? Those American congressmen who recognize that they are Zionists put on their websites that they are in Congress to serve the interests of Israel. Would the leaders and deputies of the CiU dare to be so brave, leave the closet, and declare the same? Because if their souls are trapped by Zionism and by Israel, as they themselves recognize, what the heck are they doing in Catalonia? The answer is simple: to serve the interests of Israel, and everything has its price, of course, that is how all the Zionists of the West, true mercenaries of Israel, work.

Pujol acknowledged before the Israeli Knesset, in that shameful speech, that he is deeply Zionist, from his tender age and the hand of the founder of Zionism, Teodoro Herzel, through his book entitled “The Jewish State”: ” I said, I did not just come into contact with Judaism. Also in a certain sense and especially with Zionism. And not superficially. With only 17-18 years I read (Der Judenstaat) of Herzel “. The Catalan ex-president is undone in his speech in enumerating the books and texts of Zionist authors that he read from a young age, soaking up a criminal ideology and deeply racist, as he recognizes with his concept of “people chosen by God.”

Being a Zionist, like the Pujol, Artur Mas, Puigdemont, PDeCAT and ERC, is to be racist (The UN recognizes Zionism as a racist ideology in General Assembly resolution 3379 adopted on November 10, 1975), is to ignore the rights of the Palestinian people, is to approve and be complicit in the countless massacres perpetrated by Israel in Palestine, Lebanon, Egypt and Jordan, is to approve the expulsion of their land from the Palestinian people, is to reject the countless United Nations resolutions that do justice to the Palestinian people and condemn Israel, is to support the apartheid policy that constitutes the backbone of Israel and to be complicit in its implementation against the Palestinians, is to reject international legality and to stand against the world community which it recognizes without the inalienable rights of Palestinians. To be a Zionist is to be all this and much more. Being a Zionist is no longer gratuitous, for it forces the conscience of the countless crimes and atrocities of Zionism to be burdened and to be an accomplice of each and every one of them. Today in the 21st century, it is not a matter that admits discussion, because Israel and Zionism have already lost the power they once had in the 20th century to lie, distort and confuse public opinion.Pero todo

More. Radical Zionist

But all this seems to be of little care to Pujol, much less to Artur Mas, his favorite pupil in the racist and hate-filled Zionism discipline, an ideology which the ex-president of Catalunya assumed during his tenure. He used to hide it very well, at least until June 20, 2012, when he declared during a trip to the States: “With a vision bigger than the strictly European, I want to associate Catalunya with at least Massachusetts and Israel. ”

When Mas visited Israel over 4 days in November 2013, he refused to meet with any Palestinian official, even refused to answer any questions that have to do with the Palestinians at the press conference he staged on that visit. Not only this but he dared to do what no responsible European or American have dared to do: visit the old city of Jerusalem (East Jerusalem) that is recognized by all countries of the world, without exception, as a city occupied, as established by international law led by the UN.

With that visit to the future capital of the Palestinian state, Artur Mas attacked, intentionally the Palestinian people, disregarding their nationalist sentiments at heart, he fills his mouth with a nationalism that is remote from Israel.

A spokesman for the Palestinian National Authority, Xavier Abu Eid, much more diplomatic than I (demanded of the post) declared to respect, on November 14, 2013, that “consciously or unconsciously Mas helped legitimize an occupation that they recognize all official international organizations ”

(http://ccaa.elpais.com/ccaa/2013/11/13/catalunya/1384373691_470071.html).

In these same statements Abu Eid goes further and says: “We know that Mr. Mas is not a leader of a State. However, and regardless of his status as autonomous president, international law governs for all. What the president of the Generalitat has done is a serious fault. “ In fact, he virulently ignored the Palestinians, both the people and their perennial tragedy, and the officials of the Palestinian National Authority.

In a speech at the University of Tel Aviv, during his visit, Mas said that Catalonia had chosen Israel as a “model” to follow and as “a partner for innovation.”

The former president of the Generalitat, in his eagerness to lick the boots of the Israelis, came to say in that speech that the Catalans “have Jewish origins.” What did he mean by this phrase so false and full of lies? Maybe put Catalonia at the feet of Israel? Let him explain what he meant by that phrase if he dares.

In an attempt to misrepresent and falsify, a ridiculous Artur Mas stressed that Catalonia “welcomed many Jews who escaped the horror of Nazism in the last century.” Useless attempt to rewrite history. At that time (1939-1945), General Franco was in charge of the government, and those responsible for the Generalitat during the Second Republic had fled from Spain. That is to say, if the Jews of whom Artur Mas spoke achieved asylum in Spain was thanks to the Franco regime and not to the Catalan nationalists, who then had no authority.  

It is striking that this attitude adopted in November 2013, so inclined to Zionism and Israel and so hostile towards Palestine and the Palestinian tragedy, has completely reversed its position publicly displayed in July 2011 when he received in Barcelona the president of the Palestinian National Authority, Mahmud Abbas. Then Mas told reporters that “Palestine and Catalonia are two old nations that, according to this historical tradition and in accordance with this concept of a people and a nation, we perfectly understand those people who wish to live in freedom, peace, and prosperity” Mas said, comparing Catalonia and Palestine. In a press appearance with Abbas, Mas defended “peace” and “freedom” in the Middle East, emphasizing “the closeness” between the two Palestinian and Catalan territories and, therefore, assured to understand the desire for self-determination of Palestine.

CiU and PP Catalan, lackeys of Israel

From his visit to Israel in November 2013, Artur Mas and CiU became radical Zionists. Thus, in July 2015, the Catalan Parliament rejected a motion which called for, among other things, recognition of the Palestinian people’s right to self-determination. The rejection was possible thanks to the votes of CiU and PPC.

Instead, in that vote, the Catalan Parliament, thanks to CiU and PPC, took a stand in favor of Israel, rejecting the points of the motion asking to rethink the relations of the Generalitat with the Government of Israel, such as the one that urged the Catalan Government to publish all its agreements with the Israeli Executive and the companies and institutions of the country. Also rejected was the text that claimed that the Government should not promote any agreement with Israeli companies and institutions “that have a direct and demonstrated role in the occupation and illegal colonization of Palestinian territories.”

The review of relations with Israel that promoted that motion also affected Catalan universities, which were encouraged to rescind the current agreements signed with Israeli universities when it is shown that “they have direct complicity with the illegal occupation of Palestinian territories”, point this one that also was rejected thanks to the votes of the CiU and the PP.

The position of the CiU in that vote was so hostile to Palestine that it also rejected the text that asked the Government to urge the central government in Madrid to bring to Israel the need to comply with the different UN resolutions in favor of the rights human rights and the Palestinian people. ” That is, both the CiU and the PP agreed that Israel did not comply with UN resolutions or respect international law.

Israel supports and encourages the dismemberment of Spain

Why is it that Zionism and independence of the Catalan nationalists find such a harmonious consonance with Israel? Israel would have its motives, not by chance we find numerous Israeli journalistic, diplomatic and political testimonies that extol Catalan separatism, instigate it and applaud it. Thus, for example, Adar Primor, editor-in-chief of the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, wrote the following in the aforementioned newspaper, on September 28, 2012, the day after the great independence demonstration that filled the streets of Barcelona under the title Viva Cataluña, Viva Israel): “Just as Catalonia is soon to be the state of the Catalan people, Israel is first and foremost the state of the Jewish people. There will be no future for a binational state, for a federation, for a confederation, for autonomy or for cantons. “ And he closed his chronicle on the demonstration, in which he explained the Catalans’ motives for wanting to become independent, with the proclamation “Visca Israel, Visca Catalonia”.

The then Israeli ambassador to Spain, Alon Bar, in an interview with the Catalan Nació Digital and also published by “Help Catalonia” on June 19, 2012, advised the following to the Catalans and their independence movement: “… Therefore I recommend raising a state, respecting your neighbors and negotiating with everyone. I recommend achieving independence through negotiation with all your neighbors. “ That is to say, Israel, according to its ambassador, is very much for the work of which Spain dismembers. And they say it with all the naturalness of the world.

The other Catalan independence leaders Carles Puigdemont and Oriol Junqueras.

In fact, the vast majority of Catalan independence leaders are Zionists, not just the CiU. Thus, Oriol Junqueras, ERC leader, met Oren Bar-El, minister of political affairs at the Israeli embassy in Madrid on April 26, 2012, a meeting that according to Nació Digital was “intense” and “positive”. What would the Israeli diplomat promise to Oriol Junqueras in an intense and positive interview like that, and for what?

Alfons López Tena, a former leader of Solidaritat per la Independencia, stated in an interview with the Israeli newspaper Haaretz on September 28, 2012: “Personally, I am pro-Israeli and a pro-zionist. […] At least half of the members of my party are from the Catalan Association of Friends of Israel. Israel is a democratic state and we support all the steps it has to do to survive. We do not intend to criticize the Israeli Government. We look for cooperation with Israel and hope that Israel will support the movement for the independence of Catalonia. It is clear that independent Catalonia will be a very close friend of Israel. There’s no doubt”.

After all this, and many other data that has no place here, there is no doubt that Pujol, Mas, and other Catalan ‘independentistas’, sell Catalonia to Israel and Zionism, behind the backs of the Catalans. The vast majority of the cooperation and collaboration agreements signed by the Catalan Government with Israel are secret, and what the Catalan opposition and the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) Movement in Catalonia require is the publication of all the details of these agreements, which were mostly reached in Israel.

Por Saiid Alami*/(R).-El patriarca de CiU (actualmente PDeCAT) en la democracia española, Jordi Pujol, no ha ocultado nunca la predilección que siente desde siempre por el sionismo. Pujol me dijo, en un encuentro con periodistas celebrado en Barcelona durante los preparativos de los Juegos Olímpicos de verano de 1992, que él se sentía sionista. Y lo decía desafiante, sin que viniese a cuento, y a sabiendas de que entre los periodistas presentes había un nutrido grupo de corresponsales de medios de prensa árabes que habíamos llegado desde Madrid.

Más de 15 años después de aquel encuentro de periodistas árabes con Pujol, concretamente el 28 de octubre del 2007, Pujol compareció ante sus amos sionistas en el Knesset (Parlamento) israelí y pronunció un discurso servil que rezumaba sometimiento a sus patronos, que son los dueños y señores de la banca de Nueva York, por la que tanto le cae la baba a este Berlusconi español de reducido tamaño que en la pasada década de los 80, y mientras ocupaba el cargo de presidente de la Generalitat, triunfó como banquero para fracasar después, en los 80 (aquella Banca Catalana, desaparecida en 1984).

Frases como: “La idea básica de ser el pueblo escogido creo que ha representado un factor potentísimo para el pueblo de Israel” y esta otra: “Tener la conciencia de pueblo escogido –escogido por Dios- y por consiguiente de pueblo único da mucha fuerza”, dan idea de la zalamería de este hombre al servicio del sionismo, insistiendo y recalcando él mismo en que los judíos son un pueblo elegido “por Dios”, lo que repite varias veces a lo largo de su intervención.

Esto se puede entender como que Pujol reconoce que el pueblo de Cataluña, del resto de España y del resto del mundo son “viles” comparados con el “pueblo” de Israel. ¿Se atrevería Pujol o Artur Mas (anterior presidente de la Generalitat catalana) a ponerse delante del pueblo de Cataluña y decirle: “Catalanes, reconozcan de una vez que sois un pueblo de mucha menos categoría que el pueblo de Israel….ese sí que merece mi admiración?”. ¿Se atreven los líderes separatistas que tanto cacarean su admiración por el sionismo y por Israel a decir eso mismo en discursos ante los catalanes? ¿Se atreven a reconocer ante sus votantes catalanes, a quienes llevan decenios engañando, que en realidad son sionistas y por lo tanto ponen a los intereses de Israel por encima de los intereses de los catalanes, como ocurre con todos los sionistas de Occidente? Aquellos congresistas estadounidenses que reconocen que son sionistas ponen en sus páginas de internet que están en el Congreso para servir los intereses de Israel. ¿Se atreverían los lideres y diputados del CiU a ser tan valientes, salir del armario, y declarar eso mismo? Porque si sus almas están prendidas por el sionismo y por Israel, como ellos mismos reconocen, ¿qué puñetas están haciendo pues en Cataluña? La respuesta es simple: servir a los intereses de Israel, y todo tiene su precio, por supuesto, que es como funcionan todos los sionistas de Occidente, auténticos mercenarios de Israel.

Pujol reconoció ante el Knesset israelí, en aquel vergonzoso discurso, que es profundamente sionista, desde su más tierna edad y de la mano del fundador del sionismo, Teodoro Herzel, a través del libro de éste titulado “El Estado Judío”: “Como les decía, yo no entré solo en contacto con el judaísmo. También y en un cierto sentido y sobre todo con el sionismo. Y no de manera superficial. Con sólo 17-18 años leí (Der Judenstaat) de Herzel”. El expresidente catalán se deshace en su discurso en enumerar los libros y los textos de autores sionistas que leyó desde jovencito, empapándose de una ideología criminal y profundamente racista, como reconoce él con su concepto de “pueblo escogido por Dios”.

Ser sionista, como los son los Pujol, Artur Mas, Puigdemont, PDeCAT y ERC, es ser racista (La ONU reconoce al sionismo como ideología racista en la resolución 3379 de la Asamblea general aprobada el 10 de noviembre de 1975), es ignorar los derechos del pueblo palestino, es aprobar y ser cómplice de las innumerables matanzas perpetradas por Israel en Palestino, Líbano, Egipto y Jordania, es aprobar la expulsión de su tierra del pueblo palestino, es rechazar las incontables resoluciones de las Naciones Unidas que hacen justicia al pueblo palestino y condenan a Israel, es apoyar la política del “apartheid” que constituye la columna vertebral de Israel y ser cómplice en su puesta en práctica contra los palestinos, es rechazar la legalidad internacional y ponerse en contra de la comunidad mundial que reconoce sin paliativos los derechos inalienables del los palestinos. Ser sionista es ser todo esto y mucho más. Ser sionista no resulta ya gratuito, pues obliga a cargarse la conciencia del sinfín de crímenes y atrocidades del sionismo y ser cómplice de todos y cada uno de ellos. Y no es cuestión que admita discusión a estas alturas del siglo XXI, cuando ya tanto Israel como el sionismo han perdido el poder que tenían en el siglo pasado de engañar, embaucar y confundir a la opinión pública de Occidente.

Mas, sionista radical

Pero todo esto parece que les importa un pimiento a Pujol, y mucho menos a Artur Mas, su predilecto alumno en la disciplina del sionismo racista y cargado de odio, ideología a la que el expresidente catalán se convirtió durante su mandato. Si lo era antes lo ocultaba muy bien, por lo menos hasta el 20 de junio del 2012, cuando declaró durante un viaje a Estados: “Con una visión más grande que la estrictamente europea, tengo ganas de asociar Catalunya, como mínimo, con Massachusetts e Israel”.

Cuando Mas visitó Israel a lo largo de 4 días, en noviembre de 2013, se negó a entrevistarse con ningún responsable palestino, incluso se negó a contestar a cualquier pregunta que tenga que ver con los palestinos en la conferencia de prensa que protagonizó en aquella visita. No sólo esto, sino que se atrevió a hacer lo que ningún responsable europeo o estadounidense se han atrevido a hacer: visitar la ciudad vieja de Jerusalén (Jerusalén Este) que es reconocida por todos los países del mundo, sin excepción, como ciudad ocupada, tal como establece la legalidad internacional encabezada por la ONU.

Con aquella visita a la futura capital del estado palestino, Artur Mas agredió, intencionadamente. al pueblo palestino, despreciando a sus anchas sus sentimientos nacionalistas, él que se llena la boca con un nacionalismo teledirigido desde Israel.

Un portavoz de la Autoridad Nacional Palestina, Xavier Abu Eid, mucho más diplomático que yo (se lo exige el cargo) declaró al respeto, el 14 de noviembre del 2013, que “de forma consciente o inconsciente Mas ayudó a legitimar una ocupación que reconocen todos los organismos oficiales internacionales” (http://ccaa.elpais.com/ccaa/2013/11/13/catalunya/1384373691_470071.html).

En estas mismas declaraciones Abu Eid va más lejos y dice: “Sabemos que el señor Mas no es líder de un Estado. Sin embargo, e independientemente de su condición de presidente autonómico, el derecho internacional rige para todos. Lo que ha hecho el presidente de la Generalitat es una grave falta”. De hecho, Mas ignoró virulentamente a los palestinos, tanto al pueblo y su perenne tragedia, como a los funcionarios de la Autoridad Nacional Palestina.

En un discurso pronunciado en la universidad de Tel Aviv, durante su mencionada visita, Mas decía que Cataluña había elegido a Israel como “un modelo” a seguir y como “un socio para la innovación”.

El ex presidente de la Generalitat, en su afán de lamer las botas a los israelíes, llegó a decir en aquel discurso que los catalanes “tenemos orígenes judíos”. ¿Qué ha querido decir con esta frase tan falsa y cargada de mentiras? ¿Tal vez poner a Cataluña a los pies de Israel? Que diga él que es lo que quiso decir con aquella frase, si se atreve.

En un intento de tergiversar y falsificar, un ridículo Artur Mas subrayó que Cataluña “acogió a muchos judíos que escapaban del horror del nazismo en el siglo pasado”. Vano y chusco intento de rescribir la historia. En aquella época (1939-1945), en España gobernaba el general Franco y los responsables de la Generalitat durante la II República habían huido de España. Es decir, que si los judíos de los que habla Artur Mas lograron asilo en España fue gracias al régimen franquista y no a los nacionalistas catalanes, que entonces ni pinchaban ni cortaban.

Llama la atención que esta actitud adoptada en noviembre del 2013, tan proclive al sionismo y a Israel y tan hostil hacia Palestina y la tragedia palestina, ha supuesto un vuelco total respecto a su postura mostrada públicamente en julio del 2011, cuando recibió en Barcelona al presidente de la Autoridad Nacional palestina, Mahmud Abbas. Entonces Mas dijo ante los periodistas que “Palestina y Cataluña son dos viejas naciones que, de acuerdo con esta tradición histórica y de acuerdo con este concepto de un pueblo y una nación, entendemos perfectamente aquellos pueblos que desean vivir en libertad, en paz y prosperidad”, señaló Mas, comparando Cataluña y Palestina. En aquella comparecencia ante la prensa junto a Abbas, Mas defendió la “paz” y la “libertad” en Oriente Medio, subrayó “la cercanía” entre los dos territorios palestino y catalán y, por lo tanto, aseguró entender el deseo de autodeterminación de Palestina.

CiU y PP catalán, lacayos de Israel

A partir de su visita a Israel de noviembre 2013, Artur Mas y CiU se volvieron sionistas radicales. Así, en julio  de 2015, el Parlamento catalán rechazó una moción que, pedía, entre otras cosas, reconocer el derecho de autodeterminación del pueblo palestino. El rechazo fue posible gracias a los votos de CiU y PPC.

En cambio, en aquella votación, el Parlamento Catalán, gracias a CiU y el PPC, tomó una postura favorable a Israel, rechazando los puntos de la moción que pedían replantear las relaciones de la Generalitat con el Gobierno de Israel, como el que instaba al Govern catalán a publicar todos sus acuerdos con el Ejecutivo israelí y las empresas e instituciones del país. También fue rechazado el texto que reclamaba que el Govern no impulsase ningún acuerdo con empresas e instituciones israelíes “que tengan un papel directo y demostrado en la ocupación y colonización ilegal de territorios palestinos”.

La revisión de las relaciones con Israel que promovía aquella moción afectaba también a las universidades catalanas, a las que se animaba a rescindir los actuales convenios firmados con universidades israelíes cuando se demuestre que “tienen complicidad directa con la ocupación ilegal de territorios palestinos”, punto este que también fue rechazado gracias a los votos del CiU y el PP.

La postura del CiU en aquella votación fue tan hostil a Palestina que rechazó también el texto que pedía al Govern que instase al Gobierno central en Madrid para que hiciera llegar a Israel la necesidad de cumplir las diferentes resoluciones de la ONU a “favor de los derechos humanos y el pueblo palestino”. O sea, que tanto el CiU como el PP estaban de acuerdo en que Israel no cumpla las resoluciones de la ONU ni respete la legalidad internacional.

Israel apoya y alienta el desmembramiento de España

¿Por qué será que el sionismo e independentismo de los nacionalistas catalanes encuentra tan armoniosa consonancia en Israel? Israel tendría sus motivos, no en balde encontramos numerosos testimonios periodísticos, diplomáticos y políticos israelíes que ensalzan el separatismo catalán, lo instigan y lo aplauden. Así, por ejemplo, Adar Primor, redactor jefe del diario israelí Haartz, escribía lo siguiente en el mencionado diario, el 28 de septiembre 2012, al día siguiente de la gran manifestación independista que llenó las calles de Barcelona, bajo el título (Viva Cataluña, Viva Israel): “Justo igual que Cataluña va a ser pronto el estado del pueblo catalán, Israel es primero y ante todo el estado del pueblo judío. No habrá futuro para un estado binacional, ni para una federación, ni para una confederación ni para una autonomía ni para cantones”. Y cerraba su crónica sobre la manifestación, en la que explicaba los motivos de los catalanes para querer independizarse, con la proclama.”Visca Israel, Visca Catalonia”.

El entonces embajador de Israel en España, Alon Bar, en una entrevista con la catalana Nació Digital y también publicada por “Help Catalonia” el 19 de junio del 2012, aconsejaba lo siguiente a los catalanes y a su movimiento independentista: “…por eso recomiendo levantar un estado, respetando a vuestros vecinos y negociando con todo el mundo. Yo recomiendo alcanzar la independencia a través de la negociación con todos vuestros vecinos”. O sea, Israel, según su embajador, está muy por la labor de que España se desmembre. Y lo dicen con toda la naturalidad del mundo.

Los demás líderes independentistas catalanes

Carles Puigdemont y Oriol Junqueras.

Carles Puigdemont y Oriol Junqueras.

En realidad, la inmensa mayoría de los líderes independentistas catalanes son sionistas, no sólo los del CiU. Así, Oriol Junqueras, líder de ERC, se reunió el 26 de abril del 2012 con Oren Bar-El, ministro consejero de asuntos políticos de la embajada de Israel en Madrid, reunión que, según Nació Digital, fue “intensa” y “positiva”. ¿Qué le prometería a Oriol Junqueras el diplomático israelí en una entrevista intensa y positiva como aquella, y a cambio de qué?

Por su parte, Alfons López Tena, ex dirigente de Solidaritat per la Independencia, en una entrevista al diario israelí Haaretz, el 28 de septiembre del 2012, declaró lo siguiente: “A título personal, yo soy proisraelí y prosionista. […] Como mínimo la mitad de los miembros de mi partido son de la Asociación Catalana de Amigos de Israel. Israel es un estado democrático y nosotros apoyamos todos los pasos que tiene que hacer para sobrevivir. No tenemos la intención de criticar el Gobierno de Israel. Buscamos la cooperación con Israel y esperamos que Israel apoye el movimiento por la independencia de Catalunya. Está claro que la Catalunya independiente será un amigo muy estrecho de Israel. De eso no hay ninguna duda”.

Después de todo esto, y de otros muchos datos que no tienen cabida aquí, no queda duda alguna de que Pujol, Mas, y demás independentistas catalanes, venden Cataluña a Israel y al sionismo, a espaldas de los catalanes. La inmensa mayoría de los acuerdos de cooperación y colaboración firmados por la Generalitat catalana con Israel, son secretos, y lo que exige la oposición catalana y el Movimiento BDS (Boicot, Desinversión y Sanciones) en Cataluña, es precisamente la publicación de todos los detalles de estos acuerdos, que en su mayoría fueron alcanzados en Israel.

Putin-Netanyahu

Israel Supports Russia’s Participation In Sobibor Memorial Project In Poland

According to criminal Netanyahu, the Jews will never forget how the Soviet Union ‘defeated’ the Nazi’s’. If would have sounded better if he had said that he is grateful to the Soviet Union for defeating the only chance Europe and the rest of the world had to free themselves from Jewish Communism. It is CLEAR that Netanyahu and his ilk are HAPPY that Jewish Communists won and have been able to propagate their evil regime throughout the entire world. Putin, on the other hand, extended assistance to WWII veterans living in Israel and calls it a ‘holy cause’. How much do people need in order to see what is happening?

SOCHI, August 23. /TASS/. Israel supports Russia’s participation in the memorial project at the site of what was the Nazi death camp Sobibor in Poland, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday.

“We, including myself never forget the historical role Russia and the Soviet army played in the victory over Nazism,” Netanyahu said.

“The Israeli parliament reaffirmed this just recently. As you know very well, Mr. President, this is the reason why I initiated the idea of erecting a special monument in Netanya commemorating the Liberator Soldier, the soldier of the Soviet army. You attended the inauguration of that monument. In that context Israel cannot oppose Russia’s participation in a very important project at the former concentration camp Sobibor.”

Netanyahu recalled that the uprising at the Sobibor camp was led by a Soviet officer of Jewish descent. He thanked Putin for his personal decision to extend assistance to World War II veterans residing in Israel. “Holy cause,” Putin remarked.

Sobibor camp

The death camp at Sobibor functioned from May 1942 to October 1943. According to different estimates, 150,000 to 250,000 Jews from Poland and other European countries were put to death there.

The concentration camp ceased to exist after an uprising by its inmates led by Soviet officer Aleksandr Pechersky.

Russia was invited to join the project for the museum’s renovation in 2013, initiated by Poland, Israel, the Netherlands and Slovakia whose representatives have seats on the organizing committee. Russia accepted the invitation.

In July 2017 Warsaw said that the project’s International Steering Committee had excluded Russia from the list of participants.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Moscow reacted with surprise to the news the Netherlands, Slovakia and Israel had changed their mind.

Victory day in Israel

On June 26 the Israeli parliament approved in the third, final reading a bill on celebrating the day of victory over Nazi Germany. As follows from a statement published on the Knesset’s website, the day of victory over Nazis in World War II will be officially marked in Israel on May 9 and included in a list of public holidays.

 

 

Zionism In Israeli Universities

Knesset Considers Bill to Require Zionism Course in Universities

Israeli government officals are concerned about growing Anti-Zionist sentiments in universities. So, what do they do? They plan on doubling-down on the brainwashing in higher education.

The Knesset is reviewing a bill to require a university course that is hoped to reset the anti-Israel trend on some college campuses.

Israel is considering a bill to require Israeli universities to include a prerequisite course on Zionist concepts in their curricula.

The bill was submitted to the Knesset by Yisrael Beytenu Knesset Member Oded Forer.

The measure is intended to counter the anti-Israel trend that has been seen among many of the academics.

It is also hoped the course will help students become citizens who are more aware of their heritage.

The course is expected to include texts from founding fathers such as David Ben Gurion, Menachem Begin, Yitzchak Rabin, and others.

Israeli Knesset

Knesset Passes MP-Expulsion Law

A spokeswoman for the Association of Civil Rights in Israel, Debbie Gilad-Hayo, described the new law as “one of the most serious legislative proposals in recent years.”

It harmed the “very building blocks” of democracy, including freedom of expression, the right to vote and to be elected and the right to representation, she said.

The bill was aimed at Arab lawmakers but it would become a “slippery slope” with the potential to affect all Israelis, she added.

Israel is claimed to be a “beacon of democracy,” in the Middle East, by the Zionist mainstream media. Yet, it acts completely opposite to how any true democracy should.

Israel’s parliament has adopted a controversial law allowing it to expel members accused of racial incitement. Critics say it’s aimed mainly at Arab legislators who make up the third largest group in the Knesset.

Detractors said the bill, passed in a 62-47 vote, was the latest example of curbs on freedom of speech legislated by Israel’s right-wing government.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the new law ended the “absurd situation” in which a member of parliament could “support terror against the State of Israel and its citizens.”

The new law would only allow an expulsion if approved by 90 of parliament’s 120 lawmakers.

The parliament has 18 Arab members, 16 of them in the opposition.

Majority Jewish Israelis were enraged in February when three opposition members visited relatives of Palestinians killed by Israeli security forces after alleged attacks.

The trio said they had attended that meeting to discuss the repatriation of the suspected assailants’ bodies to their families.

Breach of democratic principles

A spokeswoman for the Association of Civil Rights in Israel, Debbie Gilad-Hayo, described the new law as “one of the most serious legislative proposals in recent years.”

It harmed the “very building blocks” of democracy, including freedom of expression, the right to vote and to be elected and the right to representation, she said.

The bill was aimed at Arab lawmakers but it would become a “slippery slope” with the potential to affect all Israelis, she added.

Last week, parliament drew criticism from the European Union, when it adopted a law requiring non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that receive more than half their funding from abroad to provide details about donors’ contributions.

Critics claimed that legislation would be used to target left-wing groups.

Netanyahu Must Honor Pledge to Return 9,000 Ethiopian Jews to Israel, Says Israeli MP

“These people who are waiting here, 85 percent of them have first-degree family members in Israel… So why are they just neglecting the issue?” said Neguise [an Ethiopian-born member of Israel’s parliament]. Netanyahu’s office has said they are committed to the reunification process but refused to say why it has not begun.

Why are they neglecting the issue?? Ashkenazi Jews, like Netanyahu, are racist and Jewish Supremacists. Bringing this important and evident point up isn’t an option for Jewish-run media. This article is indeed laughable, but expected as it is from Newsweek – a pro-Israel American publication.

The sole Ethiopia-born member of Israel’s parliament has said he was left “disappointed” by Benjamin Netanyahu’s visit to the Horn of Africa country, after the Israeli prime minister failed to solidify plans to reunite 9,000 Ethiopian Jews with their families in Israel.

Avraham Neguise, a member of the Israeli Knesset from Netanyahu’s right-wing Likud party, also said he did not understand why the prime minister had not visited Jewish institutions or met with members of Ethiopia’s Jewish community, who are believed to have lived in the country for 3,000 years and are known as Beta Israel.

Neguise had waited in the Israeli delegation’s hotel along with two local Jewish leaders on Thursday morning in the hope of meeting Netanyahu, but the Israeli leader had already departed for talks with Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn and President Mulatu Teshome, The Times of Israel reported.

The aliyah—emigration or return to Israel—of Ethiopian Jews was formally begun in 1991 with Israel’s Operation Solomon, which brought thousands of Jews to Israel in a matter of days as Ethiopia’s government was overthrown by the Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF), which has been in power ever since. Some 135,000 Ethiopian Jews now live in Israel, and Netanyahu’s government approved the immigration of 9,000 more in November 2015, who have been separated from their families by the previous waves of aliyah. Ethiopian Jews have complained of institutionalized discrimination in Israel.

After stalling on the returns process, the government pledged to bring 1,300 Ethiopians to Israel by the end of 2016, partly as a result of pressure from Neguise and another Likud lawmaker, David Amsalem. But the process is yet to begin and Neguise, who came to Israel from Ethiopia in 1985, has urged Netanyahu to honor the commitment.

“These people who are waiting here, 85 percent of them have first-degree family members in Israel… So why are they just neglecting the issue?” said Neguise. Netanyahu’s office has said they are committed to the reunification process but refused to say why it has not begun.

Netanyahu arrived in Ethiopia on Thursday at the conclusion of a four-leg tour of East Africa, which also included stops in Uganda, Kenya and Rwanda, before returning to Israel on Friday. The Likud leader was the first Israeli head of state to visit sub-Saharan Africa since Yitzhak Shamir in 1987, an indication of the difficulties Israel has experienced in its relations with the continent. Many African countries cut ties with Israel after the 1973 Yom Kippur War—which pitted Israel against an Arab coalition led by Egypt and Syria—but most have since restored bilateral relations.

During his visit in Ethiopia, Netanyahu also requested the assistance of Prime Minister Desalegn in freeing an Ethiopian Israeli being held captive by in the Gaza Strip by Islamist group Hamas. Avraham Mengistu is one of two Israelis being held hostage by Hamas after he entered the coastal enclave in the summer of 2014, when Israel and Hamas engaged in a bloody war.

Desalegn also said that Ethiopia would support Israel’s bid to gain observer status at the African Union, a continental bloc of which 54 African countries are members. Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta also backed the bid. Palestine is among several other countries to hold AU observer status, which allows a country to address gatherings of the bloc.

Former Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni

Israel’s Livni Summoned by London Police for ‘War Crimes’

Israel said it expected “different behavior” from a key ally, after opposition lawmaker Tzipi Livni was summoned for an interview with UK police. Livni was Israel’s foreign minister during a deadly conflict in Gaza.

Indeed the Israeli lobby, in the UK, expected a different behavior and will get it in the end.  But, this is again another example of “smoke and mirrors.” Tzipi Livni has diplomatic immunity. British government officials will ‘raise a fuss,’ but in the end, nothing will happen to this war criminal.

Israel said it expected “different behavior” from a key ally, after opposition lawmaker Tzipi Livni was summoned for an interview with UK police. Livni was Israel’s foreign minister during a deadly conflict in Gaza.

Israel’s foreign ministry on Sunday criticized a request from Scotland Yard to interview former Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni over suspected war crimes committed during the 2008-2009 conflict with Gaza.

The ministry said it intervened after Livni, an opposition member in the Knesset, received the request from the British Metropolitan Police’s war crimes unit ahead of her visit to the UK last week.

“We would have expected different behavior from a close ally such as the UK,” the ministry said in a statement.

“Israel will do all in its power to ensure that all of its citizens are not the subject of the cynical, political abuse of otherwise legitimate legal tools,” it added.

Tobias Ellwood, the UK’s minister in charge of Middle Eastern affairs, deemed Livni’s trip an official “state visit,” which would grant her diplomatic immunity, Israeli media reported.

Scotland Yard’s request for an interview reportedly sought to clarify her position during the 22-day “Operation Cast Lead” on Gaza, which left over 1,400 Palestinians dead, many of them civilians.

Thirteen Israelis were killed during the conflict, including 10 soldiers.

In 2014, demonstrators protested against Tzipi Livni's visit to London, calling for her to be prosecuted for war crimes

A British court in 2009 issued an arrest warrant for the foreign minister after an application was submitted by activists alleging she committed war crimes as foreign minister.

However, the UK passed an amendment of a law that put officials at risk of arrest for alleged war crimes in a bid to soothe strained ties with Israel.

The change effectively placed approval for private arrest warrants for offenses committed under certain international laws, including the Geneva Convention, under the chief prosecutor’s domain.

Haneen Zoabi, an Arab member of the Israeli parliament (Knesset)

Netanyahu ‘To Work Toward Ousting Arab Knesset Member’

And Netanyahu claims Israel is a democracy!! Haneen Zoabi did the one thing that Zionist genocidal Benjamin Netanyahu could not permit — she told the truth. Benjamin Netanyahu is complicit in mass murderer of women and children, and undoubtedly one of the biggest war criminals in the world.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says he plans to work toward ousting an Arab member of the Israeli parliament (Knesset) who has described the Israeli commandos who killed ten Turkish activists back in 2010 as “murderers.”

Netanyahu said on Wednesday that he seeks to launch the expulsion process for Haneen Zoabi, the Arab MP, who said in a Knesset session earlier in the day that the Israeli forces who raided a Gaza-bound aid flotilla some six years ago were “murderers.”

“I spoke again this evening with the attorney general to consider advancing the process of expelling Haneen Zoabi from the Knesset. In her actions and her lies, she’s crossed every line and she has no place in the Knesset,” Netanyahu said, Haaretz reported.

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.

Zoabi was on board the vessel that was raided.

Ankara initially reacted to the Israeli raid with fury. It suspended its military ties with Israel and expelled the Israeli envoy from Ankara in September 2010 over Tel Aviv’s refusal to apologize for the killings.

However, Turkey gradually relented, engaging in not-so-public negotiations with the Israeli regime to normalize relations. The two sides reached a deal on the matter, which was formally announced on Tuesday.

The Wednesday Knesset session where Zoabi spoke was held to discuss the deal on the normalization of ties between Israel and Turkey. The session went raucous as she spoke. She was removed from the plenum as several other members attempted to disrupt her speech and even attack her.

Zoabi referred to the apology formally given by Israel to Turkey, drawing attention to the irony that, six years ago, the activists on board the vessel were called “terrorists,” and now they are given compensation and receive formal apologies.

“I stood here six years ago. Some of you remember the hatred and hostility toward me. And look where we got to. Apologies to the families of those who were called ‘terrorists.’ The nine that were killed, it turns out that their families need to be compensated,” she said.

She said she, too, was warranted an apology and compensation, which she said she would donate to a next aid flotilla for the Gaza Strip.

Gaza has been blockaded by the Israeli regime since 2007. The aid flotilla that was raided by Israeli commandos back in 2010 was attempting to break the siege, which has severely affected the Palestinian population in the strip.

Zoabi has on numerous occasions spoken in favor of Palestinians’ rights.

The so-called Ethics Committee of the Knesset is expected to “punish” Zoabi in “the next few days” over her Wednesday remarks, according to the Haaretz report, which did not specify what kind of “punishment” was expected.

Meanwhile, a committee of the Knesset is pushing proposed legislation that would allow the Knesset to suspend a sitting member. The proponents of the bill now hope that the incident involving Zoabi would help push the bill forward.

ISIS

VIDEO: Documented Proof ISIS Is A Creation Of The United States

There is a mistake on the title of this video, very huge mistake, ISIS is NOT the creation of just the US, it is the creation of those who control the US with the help of their bribed puppets. The creators of ISIS are those who ‘hijacked’ America when Jacob Schiff landed in the US and followed Lord Rothschild’s directives to destroy the US from within. These are the people who have also hijacked Russia during the Bolshevik Revolution and later Europe with the creation of the EU.

Original article: “‘ISIS’ Strategy Leak Reveals Syrian Takeover Plot, US “Created A Group Of Very Intelligent Enemies”,”  Source: zerohedge.com

While western propaganda would like ISIS to appear to be run by religious fanaticism, it instead, as RT reports, has been functioning more like a secret intelligence service, calculating every operation and drafting plans of a covert Syrian takeover for years. According to detailed organization chart and strategy blueprints seen by Der Spiegel, it has been revealed that the former colonel in the intelligence service of Saddam Hussein’s air defense force (among many ex-Saddam officers who now make up the leadership of ISIS) was secretly pulling the strings at ISIS for years. From recruitment and training to PsyOps tactics and overall strategy, ISIS mastermind Haji Bakr rose to power after he became “bitter and unemployed,” when the US suddenly dissolved the Iraqi army after the 2003 invasion.

When Haji Bakr was shot and killed after a brief firefight in the town of Tal Rifaat on a January morning in 2014, not even those on the mission knew the true identity of the tall man in his late fifties. Samir Abd Muhammad al-Khlifawi was the real name of the Iraqi, and as Der Spiegel reports, the former colonel in the intelligence service of Saddam Hussein’s air defense force had been secretly pulling the strings at ISIS for years.

But when the architect of the Islamic State died, he left something behind that he had intended to keep strictly confidential: the blueprint for this state. It is a folder full of handwritten organizational charts, lists and schedules, which describe how a country can be gradually subjugated. Der Spiegel has gained exclusive access to the 31 pages, some consisting of several pages pasted together.

They reveal a multilayered composition and directives for action, some already tested and others newly devised for the anarchical situation in Syria’s rebel-held territories. In a sense, the documents are the source code of the most successful terrorist army in recent history.

For the first time, the Haji Bakr documents now make it possible to reach conclusions on how the IS leadership is organized and what role former officials in the government of ex-dictator Saddam Hussein play in it. Above all, however, they show how the takeover in northern Syria was planned, making the group’s later advances into Iraq possible in the first place.

“Our greatest concern was that these plans could fall into the wrong hands and would never have become known,” said the man who has been storing Haji Bakr’s notes after pulling them out from under a tall stack of boxes and blankets. The man, fearing the IS death squads, wishes to remain anonymous.

The “Lord of the Shadows,” as some called him, sketched out the structure of the Islamic State, all the way down to the local level, compiled lists relating to the gradual infiltration of villages and determined who would oversee whom. Using a ballpoint pen, he drew the chains of command in the security apparatus on stationery. Though presumably a coincidence, the stationery was from the Syrian Defense Ministry and bore the letterhead of the department in charge of accommodations and furniture.

What Bakr put on paper, page by page, with carefully outlined boxes for individual responsibilities, was nothing less than a blueprint for a takeover. It was not a manifesto of faith, but a technically precise plan for an “Islamic Intelligence State” — a caliphate run by an organization that resembled East Germany’s notorious Stasi domestic intelligence agency.

Page-by-page the documents reveal a sophisticated plan, and as RT reports, not so much for jihad, but for building a caliphate run by cold calculations…

The organizational charts and chains of command drawn by the top strategist reveal a clearly-defined Secret Service structure with surveillance and security departments, prison and interrogation divisions, weapons and technology experts, as well as sharia judges and instructors.

The records, Spiegel reports, contain details of ISIS espionage operations and other intelligence activities to covertly gain power in territories of their interest and make sure no dissent would be possible after an actual armed takeover.

The documents explain how men would initially be recruited by ISIS in target towns and villages via local cells disguised as Islamic missionary centers. The recruits then would report back to ISIS leadership with information on the powerful locals as well as what their sources of income were, people’s political orientation and any other information which could be used to blackmail them later.

“We will appoint the smartest ones as Sharia sheiks… We will train them for a while and then dispatch them,” the ISIS mastermind Haji Bakr, whose real name was Samir Abd Muhammad al-Khlifawi, had noted in one of the papers. “Brothers” would be selected in each town to marry the daughters of the most influential families, in order to “ensure penetration of these families without their knowledge.”

The Islamic State leadership gathered any information useful for dividing and subjugating the local population. As far as Syria was concerned, they used whoever they could and changed allegiances whenever they felt like it, with their informants including former intelligence spies as well as opponents of the regime.

Another phase of the plan included the elimination of any powerful people and potential leaders who could organize the local population against the infiltrators. But in towns where the resistance grown too strong, the publication writes, ISIS temporarily withdrew allowing local Syrian rebels confront the government forces.

The terrorist organization apparently realized most of their plans, and by late 2012 things in Syria were a mess with President Assad’s pushed back while hundreds of local councils and rebel brigades took control of the territory. This anarchic mix was exploited by this tightly organized group of ex-officers to create the terrorist caliphate that straddles much of Syria and Iraq today.

As we noted previously, ex-Saddam army officers now dominate ISIS leadership. Bakr was a “highly intelligent, firm and an excellent logistician,” as an Iraqi journalist described the former officer. But when the US suddenly dissolved the Iraqi army after the 2003 invasion he became “bitter and unemployed.”

*  *  *

We leave it to RT to conclude, perfectly summing up the lack of strategic thought in US foreign policy:

The reason why ISIS are so successful as a terrorist organization is partly because many of their founding members, including the top strategist, were part of Saddam Hussein’s professional security apparatus. By shattering the well-trained army of Saddam, the US apparently created a group of very intelligent enemies.

Mission Accomplished indeed…
