VIDEO: “Within 1 or 2 Years Iran Will Be Destroyed”

Kenneth Abramowitz, a full-fledged Zionist and dual US/Israeli national, is dreaming of war and total destruction of Iran. Indeed you can be assured he has Kushner’s and Trump’s ear — after all, he donated to the POTUS.

Hasidic Jews

INTERVIEW: Is Israel Winning?

The lies of this Jew are revolting like him. He is incorrectly quoting the Bible, the Bible refers to Israel not as a physical place but as those who believe in God and His son Jesus and follow the Ten Commandments given to Moses. Israel is ATHEIST and Jews are ATHEISTS. Another blasphemy, quoting the Bible incorrectly in order to benefit while they continue to kill innocent people. We can clearly see how the devil goes to any extent to protect itself, but the Truth will sooner than later come to light and the wrath of God will be upon them. 

 

VIDEO: Hasbara & Israeli Cover-ups

Although this report is from 2010, it gives important insight on how the Hasbara functions in Israel. Nine activists are killed as a result of the Israeli attack on an aid flotilla heading to Gaza. Israel claims that the activists were armed. But, thousands of outraged demonstrators pour into the streets of major cities across the globe to condemn Israel. Was the attack justified and was there a Hasbara cover-up?

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.

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.

David-Gordis

COMMENTARY: ‘In every important way Israel has failed ’– leading American Zionist

Israel is “a failure,” the Zionist dream has curdled into Jewish selfishness, a major Jewish leader writes in an important article published yesterday. “After a life and career devoted to Jewish community and Israel, I conclude that in every important way Israel has failed to realize its promise for me,” David Gordis states.

David Gordis
David Gordis

Gordis is a former executive at the American Jewish Committee, a central organization of the Israel lobby, and former president of the Hebrew College and a former vice president of the Jewish Theological Seminary. He published his article yesterday at Tikkun under the title, “Major American Jewish Leader Changes His Mind About Israel.”

Gordis, who is in his late 70s (and the uncle of rightwing Zionist Daniel Gordis), writes that he completely believed in Israel when it was founded and through his adult life, but that the spiral of that society into occupation and Jewish particularism has caused him to change his mind. It’s a political, spiritual and religious failure: Israel is “distorted by a fanatic, obscurantist and fundamentalist religion which encourages the worst behaviors rather than the best.”

His indictment includes American Jews. “The establishment leadership in the American Jewish community is silent in the face of this dismal situation, and there are no recognizable trends that can move Israel out of this quagmire.” Peter Beinart said this about the establishment four years ago while Max Blumenthal laid out the problem in Israel’s political culture in comprehensive detail in Goliath three years ago and was promptly censored by every mainstream organ, from NPR to the New Yorker to the New York Times to the cables and public television– yes; “Frontline” features Dennis Ross and Ari Shavit as its spokespeople on Israel, to make the funders happy.

Read Gordis’s article in full. Here are some excerpts:

The Israel of today is very far from anything I dreamed of and worked for throughout my career….

Jews had returned to the stage of history after the devastation of the Holocaust. Israel was to be the great laboratory for the rebirth of an ancient tradition in a new land and in a country committed to being a model of democracy and freedom for the world.

What happened? We can debate the reasons but the bottom line for me is that it has gone terribly wrong. On the positive side, Israel’s accomplishments have been remarkable.  Israel has created a thriving economy, and has been a refuge for hundreds of thousands of the displaced and the needy. Israel has generated a rich and diverse cultural life and its scientific and educational achievements have been exemplary. In spite of these achievements, however, Israel in my view has gone astray. And it in in the area for which Israel was created, as a Jewish state, embodying and enhancing Jewish values that I see this failure..

The political culture is rotten.

Israel’s occupation of the West Bank is nearing a half century in duration. Netanyahu’s “facts on the ground” steps to make a two-state solution impossible are bearing fruit, and there still appears to be no significant opposition to these policies in Israel itself. A number of smaller organizations supporting a two-state solution have emerged, notably J-Street and Americans for Peace Now, but recent steps by the Israeli government to delegitimize these groups are proceeding. The bottom line as I see it: The right has triumphed; the left has been defeated.

The spiritual culture is rotten. The Jewish experience balanced particularism and universalism traditionally. Not in Israel. The emphasis below is Gordis’s.

Present day Israel has discarded the rational, the universal and the visionary. These values have been subordinated to a cruel and oppressive occupation, an emphatic materialism, severe inequalities rivaling the worst in the western world and distorted by a fanatic, obscurantist and fundamentalist religion which encourages the worst behaviors rather than the best.

And most depressing of all for me, is that I see no way out, no way forward which will reverse the current reality. Right wing control in Israel is stronger and more entrenched than ever. The establishment leadership in the American Jewish community is silent in the face of this dismal situation, and there are no recognizable trends that can move Israel out of this quagmire. So, sadly, after a life and career devoted to Jewish community and Israel, I conclude that in every important way Israel has failed to realize its promise for me. A noble experiment, but a failure.

This article is a huge blow. Michael Walzer has had similar misgivings lately published in a book; but he has not stated the matter as emphatically as this. But I predict apres Gordis, the deluge.

Rabbi Michael Lerner of Tikkun says that he published the article as submitted by Gordis, who is today a senior scholar at SUNY Albany:

We publish it with the same sadness that Gordis expresses at the end of this article, because many of us at Tikkun magazine shared the same hopes he expresses below for an Israel that would make Jews proud by becoming an embodiment of what is best in Jewish tradition, history, and ethics, rather than a manifestation of all the psychological and spiritual damage that has been done to our people, which now acts as an oppressor to the Palestinian people.

One last point. From his American Jewish Committee days, Gordis reflects that that Israel lobbying organization had political tensions built in.

its lay leadership tending center-right and its professional staff clearly center left.

This is always the tension in these organizations. Right now I bet J Street staff is composed of people who understand the failure of Israel, while the leadership clings to HaTikvah Zionism so as to influence the Democratic Party an iota. Americans for Peace Now surely has young staff who believe in one state.

UN rights body condemns Israel over 2014 war on Gaza

The United Nations Human Rights Council has passed a resolution condemning Israel for targeting civilians in the Gaza Strip during the Tel Aviv regime’s military offensive against the enclave last summer.

The Friday resolution said those responsible for human rights violations during the 2014 Gaza war must be held accountable, while effective remedies, including reparations, should be provided for all of the victims of the conflict.

The resolution by the 47-member Geneva-based body received yes votes from 41 states, while five countries abstained. The United States was the only country voting against the resolution.

The resolution has no binding effect but is expected to add more pressure on Israel over the crimes it committed during the 2014 war, and further complicate its case before the International Criminal Court (ICC).

Israel keeps denying that its troops and military commanders have committed war crimes.

The Tel Aviv regime condemned the Friday resolution, calling it one-sided.

The resolution also cited a recent report by the UN Commission of Inquiry on Israel’s Gaza war in 2014, which denounced Tel Aviv’s use of “huge firepower” against the tiny coastal region while it concluded that the regime may have committed war crimes against Gazans.

Palestinian envoy to the UN Ibrahim Khraishi welcomed the resolution, while the Israeli representative called it “an anti-Israeli manifesto.”

Israel’s 50-day war against Gaza, which started on July 8, 2014, killed 2,140 Palestinians. It wreaked huge destruction on the enclave.

Israel closes probe on killing four Gaza children

Israel says it has dropped a judicial investigation into one of the regime’s deadly airstrikes on the Gaza Strip which claimed the lives of four children.

“The … case has been closed following the completion of a criminal investigation,” read the statement issued by the Israeli military on Thursday, claiming that the decision was made after “an extensive number of documents relating to the attack were reviewed,” including “video footage documenting the attack in real time, as well as media images.”

The military also alleged to have collected testimonies from the Israeli soldiers and officers “who were involved in the planning and execution of the attack” and also from Gaza residents, ruling that the Israeli troops cannot be held accountable for the cold-blooded murder.

“From the factual findings collected by the investigators, it revealed that the incident took place in an area that had long been known as a compound belonging to Hamas’s Naval Police and Naval Force,” the statement went on to say.

This is while a reporter for the British daily The Guardian, who witnessed the killing, said that no effort had been made on the part of the Israeli officials to take his testimony.

On July 16, 2014, the Israeli army carried out airstrikes on Gaza beach where Palestinian children were playing, killing four of them aged between 9 and 11.

Reports also said that the Palestinian authorities aim to present the incident to the International Criminal Court as an evidence of the war crimes committed by the Tel Aviv regime.

Meanwhile, the families of the Palestinian children killed in the Israeli attack on the Gaza beach last year called for an investigation into the case by the International Criminal Court.

The Israeli military also dropped legal proceedings over two other deadly attacks on a residential compound in central Gaza City and also on the southern town of Khan Yunis, which claimed the lives of over 20 Palestinian civilians. Both raids were carried out in July last year.

Last summer, the Tel Aviv regime launched a brutal attack against the besieged coastal sliver, killing 2,140 Palestinians, including 557 children.

The aggression also left 11,100 Palestinians wounded, including 3,374 children and 2,088 women, and displaced over 170,000 others.

Gazans grapple with unemployment, poverty and a declining standard of living on a daily basis as the region has been blockaded since 2007.
