Experts: israeli Attack on Iran Site Similar in Complexity to Stuxnet

 israhell quite openly wants the US to have a war with Iran. THAT is “the problem.” Probably more people in the US that want to destroy Israel than Iran.

Information continues to emerge on Israel’s cyberattack against Iran’s Natanz enrichment site, with experts saying that they believe it was an attack of similar complexity to the Stuxnet attack. The attack was a sabotage and caused an explosion.

Identified in 2010, the Stuxnet attack was a joint cyberattack against Iran’s industrial computers, developed by the United States and Israel jointly. The attack was said to have ruined about 20% of Iran’s nuclear centrifuges.

The problem was that Stuxnet got out in the wild and started attacking industrial computers worldwide, doing substantial damage all over the place. The exploits used in that attack were quickly duplicated and led to a flurry of cyberattacks.

Israel seems fine with taking “credit” for the Natanz attack, but so far, all that’s known is the report of some damage to Iran’s nuclear site, and we don’t know what spillover effects will come from this latest attack.

Even in death, we are held hostage in a frozen medical lab in Israel

Zionists are every bit of how they describe the Nazis. Actually they are worse.

The Greenberg National Institute is complicit in holding the detained dead bodies of killed Palestinians, often dissecting them without the family’s permission.

The Institute admits a history of unauthorized removal of organs, bone and tissue from Palestinians’ bodies.

And similarly, this is not the first time Israel withholds a murder victim to blackmail their families before allowing them to bury their loved ones.

Belgian Official Says Israel Steals Organs Of Palestinian Children ...

Israel uses the Palestinian dead as ransom. Since the 1960s, Israel has killed and confiscated hundreds of Palestinian bodies and withheld them in clandestine cemeteries within closed military zones, refusing to return them.

In September 2019, the Israeli High Court re-affirmed that the state has the right to withhold Palestinian bodies as a political bargaining chip.

Furthermore, Israel’s practice to withhold the Palestinian dead is in grave violation of international humanitarian law stipulations that uphold the respect for the dead and their burial.

Belgian Official Says Israel Steals Organs Of Palestinian Children ...

The Geneva Convention Additional Protocol II states that “outrages upon personal dignity, in particular, humiliating and degrading treatment” are prohibited.

The Greenberg Institute participates in the humiliation and degradation of Palestinians killed by the Israeli military, further participating in their criminalization after their death.

Hassan Manasrah, a 15-year old Palestinian child who was killed in October 2015 was held in the Greenberg Institute for five months before being returned to his family for burial, at 1:00 AM in March 2016. His body was completely frozen, contorted, and unrecognizable to his family.

Despite the fact that his family had no choice but to acquiesce to the harsh conditions imposed by the state to receive his body – including a guarantee of 20,000 NIS (5,830 USD) to ensure that only 30 people participate in the funeral – they refused to bury him that night due to his physical condition and had to wait for his body to “defrost” to be able to fit him into a grave.

The horrific images of Basem Salah’s contorted corpse after being withheld for a month in the Greenberg Institute’s morgue exemplify the neglect, mistreatment and dehumanization of Palestinians and the complete disregard for the sanctity of the dead at the Institute.

When israel Says Jump, US Asks How High

During Israel’s 2014 onslaught against Gaza, Israel said ‘jump,’ and Obama and Biden jumped… to the tune of a quarter of a billion taxpayer dollars

By Alison Weir 

President Barack Obama’s Deputy National Security Advisor – and current Biden campaign senior advisor – recently described how Obama and Biden had helped Israel during its 2014 onslaught against Gaza.

Israel had said ‘jump,’ and Obama and Biden had jumped – to the tune of a quarter of a billion dollars. (This is on top of the $10 million per day that Israel was already getting from American taxpayers.)

Here’s the story:

Tony Blinken served as Deputy National Security Advisor under President Barack Obama and currently is a senior advisor to presidential candidate Joe Biden.

He recently participated in the American Jewish Committee’s virtual Global Forum.

During the Forum he debated with Republican former Deputy National Security Advisor K.T. McFarland about which party is more pro-Israel.

In the course of the debate, Blinken boasted of an incident in which Obama and Biden had instantly done Israel’s bidding.

The incident took place during Israel’s 2014 onslaught against Gaza.

Keep in mind that Israeli forces had waged a massive air and land assault on Gaza in July 2014, killing about 2200 Palestinians – of which 1500 were civilians, including 500 children, 16 health care workers, and 9 journalists.

In response, Palestinian resistance fighters had killed 66 Israeli soldiers and 6 Israeli civilians and injured 550 Israelis – 85% of them invading soldiers.

In addition to the deaths, Israeli forces had damaged or destroyed 116,000 Gazan homes, leaving over 100,000 people homeless.

They had also destroyed or damaged 216 Gazan schools and 67 Gazan health care facilities.

Of the 11,000 Gazans injured, 3,300 were children; 1,000 of them are permanently disabled.

More than 1,500 Palestinian children were orphaned. (For more details go here.)

To demonstrate how pro-Israel the Obama administration was, Blinken proudly described to the virtual forum audience Obama and Biden’s role (and his own) in assisting Israel’s pulverization of Gaza.

He began dramatically:

“I got a call late one night from the Israeli Ambassador Ron Dermer, and he said, ‘Can I come over tonight? It’s something urgent.’

“And I said, of course, come on over.

“This is about 9 o’clock at night at the White House. And he and the military attache from the [Israeli] embassy laid out to me in detail why Israel urgently needed a replenishment of Iron Dome interceptors that were saving lives from missile attacks.”

(Gazan resistance fighters had begun launching rockets in 2001 following Israeli attacks.)

By 2014 the rockets – most of them small, home-made, largely ineffectual projectiles – had killed a total of 23 Israelis.

During the same time period, Israeli air strikes had killed thousands of Gazans.

“The next day,” Blinken continued, “I went to the Oval Office. I sat with President Obama and Vice President Biden.

I laid out what I’d heard from the ambassador and the military attache, and I got three words from both of them in response: ‘Get it done.’

“That was Friday morning. Tuesday, we had a quarter of a billion dollars from Congress to replenish Israel’s Iron Dome supply.

That’s the kind of real action — real deeds — that go to the heart of Israel’s security.”

Israel not ally – Congress to give it $38 billion

While Blinken was trying to claim that Democrats were more pro-Israel than Republicans, the fact is that politicians from both parties have kowtowed to Israel for decades, with only a few exceptions (see this, this, and this).

Today, a bill before Congress will give Israel a minimum of $38 billion over ten years – the largest military aid package in U.S. history.

The bill is co-sponsored equally by Republicans and Democrats. It has already passed the House, and last month the Senate Foreign Relations committee passed it in a unanimous voice vote, paving the way for it to be adopted sometime in the near future. U.S. media have failed to tell Americans about it.

While Americans are often led to believe that Israel is a U.S. ally, the reality is that Israel spies on us, steals our technology, involves us in wars on its behalf, and tried to sink a U.S. Navy ship, killing 34 Americans and injuring over 170.

The pro-Israel lobby in the U.S., the most powerful and pervasive lobby for a foreign country in our nation, is responsible for the massive financial and human capital that our politicians have expended on Israel, one of the world’s smallest nations – and one that was established through a war of ethnic cleansing.

The large majority of Gazans are refugee families violently expelled by Israel, their homes and lands confiscated for the new Jewish state.

Blinken’s 20+ years of senior foreign policy positions – more to come?

A longtime Israel partisan, Blinken has held senior foreign policy positions in two administrations over two decades.

 He is close to Biden and is currently a senior advisor to the campaign.

On May 18, 2020 he was featured in a video by the Democratic Majority for Israel, which works to rally liberal and progressives to support Israel, despite its long record of human rights abuses and systemic racism.

israel’s defense sales reach $7.2bn

The Gaza Strip affords Israel – and iHLS – a competitive advantage over other countries because of the real-time opportunities to test new products year-round. Israel has earned the moniker of “start-up nation” among business elites around the world.

March of Great Return Field Testing Here

In fiscal year 2019, the US provided $3.8 billion in foreign military aid to Israel. Israel also benefits from about $8 billion of loan guarantees. Almost all US aid to Israel is now in the form of military assistance, while in the past it also received significant economic assistance. Why?

Israel’s arms sales reached $7.2 billion in 2019, the Defence Ministry said on Monday.

“Despite the intense International challenges and competition, we have managed to keep Israel among the world’s top 10 security exporters with a market share of over $7 billion,” said Yair Kulas, head of the ministry’s exports and defence cooperation division.

According to a ministry report cited by the Jerusalem Post, exports to Asia Pacific made up 41 per cent of sales, Europe 26 per cent, North America 25 per cent, and four per cent each for Africa and Latin America.

Exports included different types of weapons and defence systems such as radars and electronic warfare systems, missiles and air defence systems, drones and UAVs, weapon stations and launchers and ammunition and armaments.

War, or rather maintaining an ongoing conflict, is for israel a lucrative business. The label “combat proven” translates directly into “healthy global sales” of firearms, drones and rockets.

In recent years, Israel faced accusations of selling weapons to regimes that are accused of committing human rights abuses including Myanmar.

During the last two Israeli wars on Gaza, “Operation Cast Lead” in 2009 and “Operation Protective Edge” in 2014, Israel used its full military force and weapons of questionable legitimacy.

In the words of David Halpin, a retired British surgeon and trauma specialist, Gaza was “used as a laboratory for testing what I call weapons from hell”. These included shells containing white phosphorus and dense inert metal explosives (Dime).

Many reports confirm Israel has used shells containing white phosphorus, known as WP. It is regulated under Protocol III of the Convention of Certain Weapons (CCW), part of the Geneva Convention, for use as a smokescreen, but not as a direct weapon against civilians or military targets close to civilians.

Most cases reported of individuals affected by WP in Gaza were civilians.

The Israeli military has also been accused of using Dime weapons in Gaza since 2006.

It's confirmed : Israel is using White Phosphorus and cluster ...

israel’s WMD  war on S. Lebanon. israel has it that it’s everyone else poses the danger and they strike first. So no one does it except them! The accusations about others is always false.

WP sticks to the skin and causes severe burns. It eats bones and muscles and damages vital organs.

Recent research in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, shows that teratogens found in WP were present in the hair of “newborns with congenital birth defects or developmentally premature birth in a cohort of couples with documented parental exposure to military attacks”.

The Israeli forces say they have not used WP on civilians, or for any purpose other than illumination or screening.

New Jews [ foreign Zionists] are protesting against a British white paper that declares that Jews and Arabs are to live together in peace.


Dime attacks

The Israeli military has also been accused of using Dime weapons in Gaza since 2006. This style of explosive was developed by the US army to have a maximum blast effect with a minimal blast radius. 

Dime weapons operate at extremely high temperatures and can burn through body tissue. They also use tungsten, which is carcinogenic. Therefore, if civilians are not killed instantly by the explosion or later from their wounds, they can still die years later from exposure to tungsten.

According to Electronic intifada, Mads Gilbert, a Norwegian doctor, reported that during Operation Cast Lead: “There were a large number of patients with horrendous injuries. Limbs had been cut off as if a huge axe had chopped through them with immense force, cutting through skin, muscles and bones. Bones would be shattered and severed.”

Dime munitions, however, are new, and not covered by the CCW. The first step would be bring them under this convention.

For WP which is covered by the CCW the only option is to prohibit it, to stop it causing further suffering.

The international community is obliged to make sure rules are respected, and to stop countries like Israel treating others as laboratories for weapons experiments.

The 34-day war israeli war on S Lebanon affected surrounding environment in a number of ways. The environmental implications of the conflict ranged from air and water pollution to forest fires and waste problems and have extended beyond the territory of the two countries, often affecting several countries in the region.

1. Sea Pollution: The most well-known and one of the most serious cases of the environmental damage caused by the Israel-Lebanon conflict is the massive oil spill that resulted from the Israeli bombing of the fuel tanks at the Jiyyeh power plant in Lebanon.

It is estimated that between 10,000 and 35,000 metric tons of oil have spilled into the sea (“Oil Spill”). The spill affected an estimated 150 kilometers of Lebanese coastline, including beaches, ports and marinas.

While most of the oil released burned out or spilled into the sea, it is estimated that significant amounts also seeped in the rock underneath that has potential to contaminate groundwater wells in the area (UNEP 45).

2. Air Pollution: The strike on the fuel tanks resulted in massive fires that burned for up to 27 days. The smoke from the fires released a number of pollutant into the atmosphere, including soot, particulate matter, carbon monoxide, and methane. A combination of these pollutants is likely to cause respiratory problems for local residents (UNEP 45).

3. Land Pollution: In addition to the oil spill at the Jiyyeh plant, several other sites such as Beirut airport, several industrial factories, and petrol stations showed various levels of hydrocarbon contamination (UNEP 160).

4. Groundwater Contamination: Groundwater was also contaminated in several sites due to chemical spills, as in the case of Ghabris detergent factory in Tyre where bombing caused large quantities of chemicals being spilled into soil and water.

5. Cluster bombs: IDF used cluster bombs throughout the conflict. Cluster bombs contain several hundreds of smaller sub-munitions or bomblets in them and are usually dropped from the air.

The bomblets often fail to detonate on impact and remain on the ground until further contact with humans or environment. One cluster bomb releases enough bomblets to contaminate an area of up to eight acres (UNEP 150).

The unexploded bomblets present great hazard to civilian population and restrict access to agricultural land. It is estimated that there were up to one million unexploded bomblets in Lebanon after the conflict (UNEP 154).

6. Additional environmental problems: Some other environmental problems in Lebanon that were caused by the conflict include solid waste management, hazardous healthcare waste contamination, and damaged sanitation and wastewater infrastructure.

israelis conform to Hitler’s prediction

Why are so many Jews acting as
Hitler said they would?


“For while the Zionists try to make the rest of the world believe that the national consciousness of the Jew finds its satisfaction in the creation of a Palestinian state, the Jews again slyly dupe the dumb Goyim.

It doesn’t even enter their heads to build up a Jewish state in Palestine for the purpose of living there; all they want is a central organization for their international world swindle, endowed with its own sovereign rights and removed from the intervention of other states: a haven for convicted scoundrels and a university for budding crooks.” ~ Adolf Hitler

Protestors in Germany call for Palestinian help against Israel. Dozens of protesters marched through the German city of Dortmund , calling for Palestinian support to eradicate Israel. “Palestine help us, Israel still exists” and “Israel no more.”

‘We Look at Them Like Donkeys’: What Israel’s First Ruling Party Thought About Palestinian Citizens

The world after World War II 

To Palestine

As state-sponsored anti-Semitism disappeared with the defeat of the Nazis and the horrors of the Nazi holocaust became known, Zionists sought to conceal much of their history of collaboration with anti-Semitic movements and regimes. Yet the disappearance of state anti-Semitism created a dilemma for the Zionist project. 

If Zionism considers itself a response to anti-Semitic threats against Jews, with the end of state anti-Semitism Zionism’s raison d’être would be in jeopardy, as Jews would not be convinced of the need to move to the new state of Israel. Moreover, as anti-Semitism came to be rejected by the post-World War II world, so was colonialism.

As the colonial age was ending and a post-colonial world of independent states was emerging, colonialism like anti-Semitism was thoroughly delegitimised in international relations and in European parlance. 

Zionism has created ‘rivers of blood’

Now that Zionists began to recode their colonial project as “anti-colonial” while proceeding with colonization, they understood that they could capitalize on the recent hostility to anti-Semitism in European public opinion.

As the Palestinian people mounted their resistance to Jewish colonization year after year, and decade after decade, Zionism began to fight them by labeling them anti-Semites. 

Indeed, it was then that any call for the end of Zionist colonization would be confronted with the argument of anti-Semitism. Israel decided then that if state anti-Semitism did not exist, it must be conjured up, if attacks on Jews qua Jews did not exist, they must be engineered, if an anti-Semitic attitude could be discerned, it must be capitalized on, generalized and exaggerated.

For the only defense Israel could mount in the new world that was opposed to both colonialism and anti-Semitism was to use one in defence of the other.  

Zionism would begin to rewrite the Palestinian struggle against Jewish colonization not as an anti-colonial struggle but as an anti-Semitic project.

The story of the Palestinian Mufti Haj Amin al-Husseini would become Exhibit A in the Zionist version of Palestinian history. 

Despairing from convincing Britain to stop its support of the Zionist colonial project and horrified by the Zionist-Nazi collaboration that strengthened the Zionist theft of Palestine further, the Palestinian elitist and conservative leader Haj Amin al-Husseini (who opposed the Palestinian peasant revolt of 1936 against Zionist colonization) sought relations with the Nazis to convince them to halt their support for Jewish immigration to Palestine, which they had promoted through the Transfer Agreement with the Zionists in 1933. 

It was the very same Zionist collaborators with the Nazis who would later vilify al-Husseini, beginning in the 1950s to the present, as a Hitlerite of genocidal proportions, even though his limited role ended up being one of propagandizing on behalf of the Nazis to East European and Soviet Muslims on the radio. 

Zionists taking Palestine

Nonetheless, whenever the question of Jewish colonization was raised by the Palestinians, the Zionist response would be to insist invariably that Jewish colonization was the only way to end anti-Semitism and protect Jews, and that any and all opposition to Jewish colonization of Palestine was nothing short of a continuation of anti-Semitism.

Israel began to insist that any talk of colonization of Palestinian land was nothing short of a distraction from anti-Semitism targeting Jews. 

In light of the new post-war period that saw the end of state-sponsored anti-Semitism, the Zionists set out to attack Jews in a number of countries and to conjure up the spectre of anti-Semitism in countries that opposed Zionism.

In Iraq, the Israeli Mossad planted bombs in synagogues, libraries and cafes in the early 1950s, which killed and injured Iraqi Jews and spread panic amongst them that Iraqi Muslims and Christians were targeting them.

Collaboration ensued between Israel and the British-sponsored Iraqi regime to bring about the exodus of Iraqi Jews to Israel. 

In his book, Ben Gurion’s Scandals: How the Haganah & the Mossad Eliminated Jews, Giladi discusses the crimes committed by Zionists in their frenzy to import raw Jewish labor.

The Ringworm Scandal: When Israeli Doctors Killed Tens of Thousands of Arab Children

When Egyptian Jews still refused to go to Israel, the Mossad again placed bombs in Egyptian cinemas, train stations and post offices.

When the Egyptian authorities uncovered the terrorist operation, later made famous under the name the “Lavon Affair”, and its Jewish perpetrators were captured and tried, Israel launched a major propaganda campaign claiming that Nasser was “Hitler on the Nile”. 

In the post-Stalin Soviet Union, which unlike its Stalinist predecessor, opposed Zionism, and where all Soviet citizens were not allowed to emigrate, a major Cold War Israeli and US propaganda campaign insisted that the Soviets were anti-Semites.

The Americans and the Israelis arranged to grant Soviet Jews special privileges over other Soviet citizens by forcing the Soviet government to grant them emigration visas. 

Those Soviet Jews who left did so for economic reasons and as such went (to Israel’s chagrin) to the United States, a situation that forced Israel later to collaborate with the Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu to reroute them to Israel forcibly.

Indeed, the Israelis would later try to introduce legislation in the US to prevent their emigration to the United States, which indeed would close off its borders to them after the USSR fell.

This would force many Soviet Jews (a majority of whom turned out to be Soviet non-Jews who pretended to be Jewish) to go to Israel as economic refugees in the 1990s. 

To Find the Principles: Nasty Nazi Analogies in Amherst: Gaza is ...

The post-Soviet world 

Israel and Zionism have been in deep mourning over the passing of actual anti-Semitic regimes and of regimes that they could cast in that role, as these regimes had provided them with so much propaganda power to justify their colonial project.

After the fall of the USSR, the Zionists ran out of arguments and of regimes they could label “anti-Semitic”. In this new situation, Israeli propaganda would become outright hysterical. Attempting to cast some of the anti-Zionist pronouncements of the Iranian President Ahmadinejad as genocidal anti-Semitism, Israel is hoping it could cover up its ongoing colonisation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem. 

“Anti-Semitism in Israeli discourse is and has been nothing short of camouflage for the continuation of Jewish colonization of Palestine.”

In case this did not work, the Israeli embassy in Dublin last week summoned the supernatural powers of Jesus Christ to help cover up Zionist colonialism.

In a Christmas Message to the Irish people on its official Facebook page, the embassy announced that the Palestinians would probably “lynch” Jesus and his mother Mary in Bethlehem today had they been alive as “Jews without security”, hence the need for Israel to continue to colonise Palestinian land while ensuring the security of its Jewish colonial settlers. 

Indeed Binyamin Netanyahu argued in his UN speech last year that Palestinian resistance to Jewish colonial settlement in the West Bank and East Jerusalem is itself anti-Semitic. He even compared Palestinian Authority laws criminalising collaboration with Jewish colonization as akin to the Nuremberg Laws: “There are laws today in Ramallah that make the selling of land to Jews punishable by death. That’s racism.

And you know which laws this evokes.” Netanyahu seems to have forgotten that it was the Zionists, not the Palestinians, who abetted the Nazis in 1935 when they supported the Nuremberg Laws. 

Palestinians understood well these arguments and always insisted and insist that their struggle is against Jewish colonization of their lands and not against Jews qua Jews. When Khaled Meshal arrived in Gaza a couple of weeks ago and made a speech to that effect, he insisted: “We do not fight the Jews because they are Jews. We fight the Zionist occupiers and aggressors. And we will fight anyone who tries to occupy our lands or attacks us.” 

David Norris

The British Observer mistranslated his speech as: “We don’t kill Jews because they are Jews. We kill the Zionists because they are conquerors and we will continue to kill anyone who takes our land and our holy places.” While the Observer would later run a correction after the tireless Ali Abunimah exposed the doctored quotes, its mistranslation was in line with Zionist propaganda. 

Herzl’s strategy continues to be the strategy of Zionism and the State of Israel. Whereas state-sponsored anti-Semitism has disappeared, Israel must create it and conjure it up, as this is its major line of defence against any and all international criticisms and censure of its ongoing colonization of Palestine. 

While the four permanent members of the UN Security Council censured Israel last week for its plans to expand yet again its colonial settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, the US will surely veto a possible UN Security Council resolution condemning these colonial activities.

Should this happen, we will immediately hear the Israeli and pro-Israeli chorus of condemnation of the international body as “anti-Semitic” yet again. 

That this strategy has now run its course and no longer intimidates international actors has led to much panic in Zionist and Israeli circles. Israel and Zionism now understand well that when the world, including the United States (excepting Barack Obama), hears “anti-Semitism” as an argument to defend Israel, they understand it as an Israeli diversionary tactic to distract the world from Israeli Jewish colonialism and colonial-settlements on Palestinian land. 

Make no mistake about it, anti-Semitism in Israeli discourse is and has been nothing short of camouflage for the continuation of Jewish colonization of Palestine. Only the gullible continue to be fooled. 

 

How Czechoslovakia Helped israel Win

History is full of surprises..

The most spectacular moment was the Czech “no” to the Palestinian UN bid to become a non-member, i.e. against overwhelming majority of EU countries, who voted “yes” or abstained.

The commencement of very close relations between Czechoslovakia, or the Czech Republic, with Israel dates back to tumultuous times before the establishment of the Jewish state. Jan Masaryk, son of Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk, and then foreign minister, followed in his father’s footsteps.

He was also an ardent supporter of the Zionist cause, and in 1947 Czechoslovakia was one of 33 countries to vote in favor of the UN partition resolution recommending the establishment of a Jewish state. Czechoslovak support for Israel continued even after the Communist putsch in February 1948.

On May 18, 1948, four days after Israel’s declaration of independence, Czechoslovakia was among the first countries to recognize the State of Israel. Diplomatic relations between the two countries were established on July 3, 1948.

Czechoslovakia provided not only political but also military support, which was crucial for Israel’s victory in the first Arab-Israeli War.

Israel can thank the former Czechoslovakia for gaining the upper hand in the Arab-Israeli War in 1948, when Prague broke a U.N. embargo to send it weapons, including 80 planes, and train pilots including future Israeli President Ezer Weizman, tipping the balance.

Under an embargo imposed by the United Nations, the Jewish forces were short of arms and ammunition, and Czechoslovakia was then the only country willing to sell weapons to the Yishuv after World War II.

The newly established Israeli state, therefore, bought military aircraft and weapons from Czechoslovakia.

Twenty-five Avia S-199 fighters, 61 Supermarine Spitfire fighter aircraft, and other weapons and ammunition were sold to Israel.

The exact numbers are hard to find due to lack of records, but during the year 1948 Israel purchased from Czechoslovakia 34,500 Mauser P-18 guns, 20,000 bayonets, almost 50 million bullets, 5,515 Spandau MG-34 light machine guns with 10,000 ammo belts, 500 ZB-26 light machine guns, 900 ZB37 heavy machine guns, and 500 CZ vz. 27 pistols with ammunition.

Another problem Israel had to face, beside the arms shortage, was the shortage of trained and experienced air force pilots. Training Israeli pilots in Czechoslovakia was thus also highly important for the new Israeli army. Specifically, 82 pilots and 69 ground specialists were trained in Czechoslovakia.

Training was conducted in air bases in České Budějovice, Hradec Králové, and Prostějov. Many of these pilots later became part of the First Fighter Squadron of the Israeli Air Force.

One of these people was the future commander of the Israeli air force and Israel’s president Ezer Weizman.

The eloquent words of the first Israeli Prime Minister, David Ben Gurion, show the significance of help from Czechoslovakia: “They saved our country. I don’t doubt it.

The Czech weapons were the most important help that we got. They saved us, and I doubt very much that we would have survived the first month without them.” And he is not the only Israeli official known for making such a claim.

For instance, Yitzhak Rabin, an IDF commander in Israel’s War of Independence and later Israel’s prime minister, said, that “without the arms from Czechoslovakia… it is very doubtful whether we would have been able to conduct the war.”

Communist Black Chapter

The Jewish mafia helped israel: “all our ships carrying weapons to Israel were registered in Panama and flew under the Panamanian flag.”

However, in February 1948, Communists seized power in Czechoslovakia, and the country fell under the Soviet sphere of influence.

Under these circumstances, Czechoslovak support for Israel had to conform to the Kremlin’s political line. An independent foreign policy in the Eastern Bloc was nearly impossible.

After 1948, it was becoming obvious that Israel would not become a part of the Eastern Bloc, and Israel-USSR relations began to deteriorate.

In the eyes of the USSR, Israel ceased to be an ally and became an agent of American imperialism in the Middle East.

A logical consequence of this development was that support for newly established Israel was denied and former Soviet support for Zionism turned into open enmity.

Anti-Zionism became common all over the Eastern Bloc, and even Czechoslovakia did not avoid it.

In this respect, the infamous Slánský trial of 1952 must be mentioned. Rudolf Slánský was secretary-general of the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia, and the second most powerful man in Czechoslovakia after President Klement Gottwald.

Delegates at the 18th Zionist Congress, Prague, Czechoslovakia, 1933

His Jewish origin was one of the main reasons why he was chosen to be the showcase in this show trial. Along with 13 other high-ranking Communist officials (11 of whom were also of Jewish descent), he was accused of a Zionist-Titoist-Trotskyist conspiracy and charged with high treason.

All the defendants were forced to plead guilty for spying, treason, sabotage, and disclosure of military secrets. In this show trial, Rudolf Slánský and 10 other accused people were sentenced to death and hanged.

The remaining three people received a life sentence. Show trials like this were not uncommon in the Eastern Bloc.

They were inspired by trials in the USSR, and similar trials had also been staged in Poland, Hungary, and Bulgaria.

Anti-Zionist moods were on the rise at that time, and Czechoslovakia’s Communist government blamed Israel for disrupting the Czechoslovak state and its economy.

Israel” 'safe haven for pedophiles' | Scoundrel Watch

Zionist Occupied Palestine  is a haven for criminals

That was the reason why two Israelis, Simon Orenstein and Mordecai Oren, were arrested and forced to testify in the Slánský trial.

Eventually, both were found guilty of being agents of Western imperialism and traitors to the Communist regime and sentenced to many years of imprisonment.

Fortunately for both of them, the former was released and expelled to Israel in 1954 and the latter two years later.

Another blow for relations with Israel came in 1967. All the Communist countries in the Soviet Bloc except Romania completely severed their diplomatic ties with Israel after the Six-Day War.

For this reason, for more than 20 years, there were no official relations between Czechoslovakia and Israel. These years belong to the darkest chapters of modern Czech history and Czechoslovakia-Israel relations.

Following Masaryk’s Tradition after 1989

The fall of Communism in 1989 was the beginning of a new chapter in Czechoslovak- (and later Czech-) Israel relations.

The election of Václav Havel on December 29, 1989, itself was a turning point. Three days after his election, the new Czechoslovak president said in his New Year address that he would be happy if diplomatic relations with Israel were established before the elections.

His wish was fulfilled soon thereafter. In those euphoric times, diplomatic ties were renewed in February 1990, and two months later, President Václav Havel was the first head of the post-Communist countries to visit Israel.

“As a newly forming democracy, we sympathize with Israeli democracy,” Havel said on the occasion of the reestablishment of relations with Israel.

He also appreciated the contribution of Jews to Czech and Slovak culture. Václav Havel followed the legacy of Tomáš G. Masaryk, who was not afraid to act in the Hilsner affair and stood up decisively against anti-Zionism.

We can say that Havel continued with the friendly policy toward Jews and Zionism set by both Tomáš G. Masaryk and his son Jan Masaryk.

Václav Havel’s activities to support Israel continued after leaving presidential office in 2003.

Together with many other personalities from political and cultural life, he became involved with the Friends of Israel Initiative, which was founded by former Spanish Prime Minister José Maria Aznar.

It aims to “seek to counter the attempts to delegitimize the State of Israel and its right to live in peace within safe and defensible borders.” [Occupying Palestine land]

After Václav Havel, his successors Václav Klaus and Miloš Zeman continued in his pro-Israel policy. The same applies to all governments since 1989.

Close and outstanding relations with Israel are a priority and where there is a unanimous consensus between democratic parties it does not matter who is in power.

Back in 2013, Milos Zeman, the Czech president, advocated that his country’s embassy in Israel should be moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. That was more than four years before Donald Trump announced that the US would take such a reckless step.

The Czech Republic is one of the closest allies to Israel within the European Union, where a friendly attitude toward Israel is not common.

Here are a few recent examples of Czech support for Israel: In 2006, when Israel fought Hizbullah, the Czech Republic, unlike many EU countries, stressed the right of Israel to defend itself.

More than two years later, at the turn of 2008–2009, the Czech Republic was also one of the few countries that did not condemn Israel’s Operation Cast Lead against Hamas in Gaza.

the Czech Republic support all of “israel’s” aggression and atrocities.

BAnd when it comes to voting in the UN General Assembly, the Czech Republic is one of a few countries that usually does not vote in favor of anti-Israeli resolutions.

Not only political, but also economic relations have been flourishing since 1990. Israel is a producer of cutting-edge technologies and thus a very attractive business partner for many Czech companies, while on the other hand, strong relations with the Czech Republic are strategically important for Israeli companies

. The Czech Republic allows Israeli companies to enter the European market.

Recent military cooperation must be mentioned, too. For instance, in late 2008, Israel was the only country that agreed to help train Czech helicopter pilots and crews in desert conditions for their upcoming mission in Afghanistan.

The training was conducted in the Negev Desert. Israel considered this an opportunity to express its gratitude to the Czechs for training Israeli pilots during the first Arab-Israeli war.

Even though the geographical distance between the two countries is more than 2,600 km, we cannot find a European country with closer relations with Israel than the Czech Republic.

Maintaining and strengthening the existing ties between the Czech Republic and Israel is desirable and necessary.

Good mutual relations are, in many aspects, in the best interest of both democratic countries.

ISRAEL UNMASKED

This book shows us how twisted the Israelis are. It’s a must read.

Andrew and Leslie Cockburns 1991 book on Israels relations with the C.I.A is still a valuable book with regard to the reality of the Israeli States involvement in the world at large.

It details a diverse range of issues from the arms deals to Iran which continued seamlessly from the Shah to the Ayatolah, Israeli involvement with the right wing dictatorships of Central America, its collaboration with apartheid era South Africa on weapons programmes (nuclear and conventional), its kidnapping and murder operations overseas as well as spying and industrial espionage in the United States.

Even for the most hardened cynic of Israeli actions (based on a study of reality not prejudice) will be astonished at the sheer opportunism and sickening character of Israeli actions including arms sales and training to Columbian drug cartels.

The nature of the Israeli Arms industry is curtly summed up in the statement of an industry executive bemoaning the “threat of peace” and the end of the murderous wars of Central America.

Other issues involve the Israelis contempt for the sovereignty of other nations – witness the ham fisted murder of a Norwegian waiter of Morrocan origins in front of his pregnant girlfriend and the abduction of the courageous Israeli whistle blower Vanunu from Italy.

There is no limit to the opportunism of the Israeli establishment, “Is it good for Israelis?” seems to be the only measure – morals, ethics are just not in the picture.

Even their closest allies in the U.S. are treated with contempt from time to time for instance the Israelis had intelligence relating to the truck bombing of U.S. personnel in Lebanon in 1983 abut didn’t pass it on.

One looks forward to the day the Israelis are put in their place.

Zionism needs to be crushed.

This book should be essential to anyone interested in the real facts about Israels foreign and covert policies, it is well sourced and includes interesting interviews with many of the figures involved, though perhaps not the best read if you are not familiar with modern Middle Eastern history and Israeli relations with the U.S.

ICC Denounces ‘Unprecedented Attacks’ by US

Since almost the earliest days of the Israeli state and the earliest days of the CIA a secret bond, a secret link between them, basically by which the Israelis — the Israeli intelligence — did jobs for the CIA and for the rest of American intelligence. You can’t understand what’s been going on around the world with American covert operations and the Israeli covert operations until you understand that the two countries have this secret arrangement. ~dangerous-liaisons

The International Criminal Court on Thursday rebuked the Trump administration for slapping sanctions and travel restrictions on court staff investigating alleged war crimes committed by U.S., calling the action “an unacceptable attempt to interfere with the rule of law.”

The new statement from the Hague-based body came after President Donald Trump issued an executive order authorizing the actions targeting ICC staff and their family members—as well as anyone who has “directly engaged in any effort by the ICC” to investigate the U.S. or a U.S. ally—as the Trump administration continues to lash out over ongoing investigations into alleged war crimes committed by U.S. forces and others in Afghanistan and alleged war crimes committed by Israel against Palestinians.

The court called Trump’s order “the latest in a series of unprecedented attacks on the ICC, an independent international judicial institution, as well as on the Rome Statute system of international criminal justice.”

“These attacks constitute an escalation and an unacceptable attempt to interfere with the rule of law and the court’s judicial proceedings,” the statement continued.

“They are announced with the declared aim of influencing the actions of ICC officials in the context of the court’s independent and objective investigations and impartial judicial proceedings.”

“An attack on the ICC also represents an attack against the interests of victims of atrocity crimes, for many of whom the court represents the last hope for justice,” the court added.

United Nations human rights spokesman Rupert Colville on Friday stressed the importance of the ICC being able to operate free from “threats or interference.”

“Victims of gross human rights violations and serious violations of international humanitarian law and their families have the right to redress and the truth,” he said at a press briefing in Geneva.

Criticism came in from the E.U. as well, with Dutch Foreign Affairs Minister Stef Blok saying he was “very disturbed” by the White House move, and the political block’s top diplomat, Josep Borrell, deemed it “very bad news.”

Trump’s order had already prompted a chorus of harsh criticism from rights groups.

Daniel Balson, advocacy director for Amnesty International USA, expressed concern that the “vague and open-ended language in the executive order could leave open the possibility that NGO workers, activists, foreign government officials, and others working to advance international justice may find themselves implicated by these obstructive measures.”

They stay hidden and pull strings from behind the curtain. Whatever US does, they are behind it.

“The ICC has investigated individuals responsible for some of the world’s most horrific crimes, including those in Myanmar, the Central African Republic, and Darfur, to name just a few.

The ICC is a court of last resort; it exists to provide justice in situations where states are unwilling or unable to do so. It is a court for the people,” said Balson. “That the Trump administration is so committed to targeting the court speaks volumes about its lack of commitment to delivering justice to individuals, families, and communities.”

“Asset freezes and travel bans are for human rights violators, not those seeking to bring rights violators to justice,” added Richard Dicker, international justice director at Human Rights Watch. “By targeting the ICC, the Trump administration continues its assault on the global rule of law, putting the U.S. on the side of those who commit and cover up grave abuses, not those who prosecute them.”

 

Question: ” Why is the Criminal State of “israel” Training US Police Forces?

It’s noteworthy that while Israel is killing and oppressing Palestinians, they’re also militarizing U.S. police departments

When the U.S. Department of Justice published a report Aug. 10 that documented “widespread constitutional violations, discriminatory enforcement, and culture of retaliation” within the Baltimore Police Department (BPD), there was rightly a general reaction of outrage.

But what hasn’t received as much attention is where Baltimore police received training on crowd control, use of force and surveillance: Israel’s national police, military and intelligence services.

Baltimore law enforcement officials, along with hundreds of others from Florida, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, California, Arizona, Connecticut, New York, Massachusetts, North CarolinaGeorgia, Washington state as well as the DC Capitol police have all traveled to Israel for training.

Thousands of others have received training from Israeli officials here in the U.S.

Since the 9/11 terrorist bombing of the World Trade Center, New York’s police department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and a slew of other local, state, and federal agencies have routinely sent officials to Israel for anti-terrorism training.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed an executive order banning state business with organizations associated with an anti-Israeli boycott movement. Other states are making similar moves.

The law enforcement exchange trips are sponsored by government officials, private companies and non-profits, and, although the trips generally include law enforcement officials from across the US, they have forged especially strong ties between Israeli authorities and law enforcement in NYC.

Since the first trip in 2002, organized by the pro-Israel think tank the Jewish Institute for National Security of America (JINSA), over 11,000 American law enforcement officials have received training from Israeli security officials through the Law Enforcement Exchange Program (LEEP).

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) also has a longstanding program to train American law enforcement officials in Israel and bring Israeli law enforcement officials to lecture in the United States. The NYPD has maintained a branch in Tel Aviv since at least 2012.

Activists march from the Boston Common to the headquarters of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) to protest the Jewish civil rights group’s funding of exchange programs in which local police departments receive training from the Israeli Defense Force on crowd control, counterterrorism and other military tactics.

The programs have enabled law enforcement officials in New York to import Israeli surveillance, racial profiling and protest suppression tactics and technologies, as well as enabling Israeli officials to learn from policing practices in New York City, according to the JVP and RAIA report.

With the help of the CIA, New York police created a Demographics Unit which mapped entire Muslim communities and wrote detailed files on where people ate, prayed and shopped.

The unit was inspired in part by Israeli practices in the Occupied Territories, according to the 2013 book, “Enemies Within,” by Matt Apuzzo and Adam Goldman.

“Drawing inspiration from Israeli military practices in the Occupied Palestinian Territories casts the NYPD in the role of brutal occupying force and the areas where American Muslims live as occupied foreign territory,” Ramzi Kassem, a professor at CUNY School of Law, where he directs the CLEAR project (Creating Law Enforcement Accountability & Responsibility), said in an email.

“New Yorkers, who are reminded by every passing police cruiser to expect ‘Courtesy, Professionalism, and Respect’, now know that the police force they pay looked to a repeat human rights violator as a model.”

In April, the JVP secured its first significant win in its efforts to end exchange programs when the Durham City Council in North Carolina voted unanimously to prohibit its police department from participating in “military-style training” abroad.

“Trump has claimed the mantle of ‘fighting terrorism’ to defend policies like the Muslim Ban, militarized policing, and detaining, deporting and separating families at the US-Mexico border,” Fox told Documented.

“The Trump administration has built their inhumane policies of migration and policing on the foundation laid by the very counter-terrorism logics lauded during police exchange programs with Israel.”

 

 

Operating Outside the Rule of Law: Washington Pressures ICC

North Korea Criticizes ‘Gangster-Like’ U.S. Attitude After Talks With Mike Pompeo

June 4, 2020

President Trump, Pompeo, and John Bolton all called the ICC “political, corrupt, irresponsible, unaccountable, and lacking transparency, and therefore illegitimate.”

The critique sounded oddly enough like an accurate description of the Trump Administration itself.

There is apparently no limit to what the United States and Israel can get away with without any consequences.

The United States has been waging devastating economic warfare against Iran and Venezuela while also blaming China for a global health crisis that it is unwilling to help address due to its withdrawal from the World Health Organization.

Israel meanwhile is planning on illegally annexing significant parts of the Palestinian West Bank in July, with a green light from the Trump Administration, and no one in Europe or elsewhere is even interested in initiating serious sanctions that might lead to the postponing of that decision.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has even stated flatly that the remaining Palestinians who would be annexed will not become Israeli citizens – they will instead be “subjects” of the Jewish state with no guaranteed rights or privileges.

The American Establishment is totally committed to the principle that the United States and Israel should have a “free hand” in dealing with other countries in their respective spheres of influence.

That effectively means controlling the narrative so that the U.S. and the Jewish state always appear to be victims of other nations’ unprincipled behavior and also creating an environment where there can be no effective legal challenges to aggressive action.

Indeed, the one organization that was specifically set up to deal with issues like aggressive wars and ethnic cleansing, the International Criminal Court (ICC) at the Hague, has been specifically targeted by both Washington and Jerusalem to deny it any jurisdiction in situations where either country is involved.

“If the court comes after us, Israel or other US allies, we will not sit quietly,” Bolton said.

Neither Israel nor the United States has recognized the ICC for the obvious reason that they are primary sources of egregious human rights and international law violations.

Israel is particularly concerned over its numerous war crimes, to include its violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention which forbids “the transfer, directly or indirectly, by the Occupying Power of parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies, or the deportation or transfer of all or parts of the population of the occupied territory within or outside this territory.”

The ICC has, in fact, been targeted recently by both the Trump Administration and Congress.

Two weeks ago, a bipartisan group of 69 United States senators submitted to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo a letter condemning the “dangerous politicization of the court” that “unfairly targets Israel.”

The Senators urged Pompeo to continue his “vigorous support of Israel as it faces the growing possibility of investigations and prosecutions by the International Criminal Court.”

The letter included the claim that “actions currently underway could lead to the prosecution of Israeli nationals…” even though “the ICC does not enjoy legitimate jurisdiction in this case.”

The assertion that the ICC does not have jurisdiction is questionable at best as the “Palestinian State” has observer status and is a member of international bodies at the United Nations.

It is also a signatory to the Rome Statute that established the ICC.

The Senate letter itself was predictably written by Ester Kurz, the legislative director of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), which is the leading Israel advocacy group in the United States.

A similar letter was also circulated in the House of Representatives, which added an “American issue” by criticizing the ICC’s intention to investigate United States war crimes in Afghanistan. It received 262 signatures.

Anticipating the threat to Israeli interests, the U.S. Congress has long made security and other assistance to the Palestinian Authority conditional, suspending all support if “the Palestinians initiate an International Criminal Court (ICC) judicially authorized investigation, or actively support such an investigation, that subjects Israeli nationals to an investigation for alleged crimes against Palestinians.”

As Donald Trump has de facto cut off virtually all assistance, including the humanitarian aid given to refugees, the punishment for going to the ICC is essentially moot and the Palestinians have consequently moved ahead with their complaint in an attempt to upset the timetable for Israeli annexation.

The Senators’ letter surfaced at the same time as a warning was issued by Pompeo to the ICC that focused on Israel but was clearly intended to derail any attempts to look at American war crimes in Afghanistan.

He claimed that the ICC is a political body, not a legitimate judicial institution, and accused chief prosecutor Fatou Bensouda of maliciously investigating “Israeli war crimes in Gaza, the West Bank and East Jerusalem.”

His complaint paralleled the Senatorial letter, which is perhaps no coincidence, in claiming that the court has no jurisdiction and the Palestinians are not “sovereign” and therefore have no standing to go to the court in the first place.

And Pompeo concluded with a threat: “A court that attempts to exercise its power outside its jurisdiction is a political tool that makes a mockery of the law and due process.

If the ICC continues down its current course, we will exact consequences.”

Israel has also claimed, as does the United States, that it is not subject to ICC “trial” because it has a functioning court system that is capable of punishing war criminals.

Of course, the fact is that Israel does not do so and the U.S. only does so when embarrassed.

The most recent American war criminal was convicted by military courts and then pardoned by President Donald Trump. He was even feted at the White House.

Bensouda announced in November 2017 that she would proceed with an investigation of alleged U.S. war crimes in Afghanistan.

The Trump Administration expressed its anger by criticizing her in tweets, canceling her visa to the United States, and threatening legal action against her, her staff and even ICC judges.

US Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, has sent a threatening letter to members of the UN General Assembly before a vote on a resolution against the US decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

The White House warned that if the ICC even dares to detain an American citizen the United States would use military force to release him or her.

President Trump, Pompeo, and John Bolton all called the ICC “political, corrupt, irresponsible, unaccountable, and lacking transparency, and therefore illegitimate.”

The critique sounded oddly enough like an accurate description of the Trump Administration itself.

Bensouda, who has been timid about confronting Israel in the past, is now reportedly proceeding with the Palestinian complaint. She has also been authorized to proceed with her investigation of American crimes in Afghanistan.

If there is to be an actual trial, high-level politicians, officials, and military officers from both Israel and the U.S. could be summoned for questioning.

If the summonses are ignored, which is probable, the prosecutor could then issue international arrest warrants, meaning that they could be arrested and extradited to the Court if they were to travel to any of the 123 countries that are parties to the Rome Statute.

So, one can expect both the United States and Israel to continue their defamation of the ICC, to include the threats of armed response coming from Washington.

An attack on The Hague might be unimaginable in the real world, but the past three years have demonstrated that Donald Trump is capable of almost anything.

Until then, one hopes that Bensouda will continue her work to expose the crimes that continue to be committed in both Palestine and Afghanistan.

Embarrassing the United States and Israel in a very visible and highly respected public forum might be the only way to wake up the citizens of those two countries to the terrible things that have been and continue to be done in their names.

Lebanese Foreign Minister Condemns Continuous “israeli” Air Terrorism 1978-2020

For decades, a conflict has raged on the border of occupied Palestine and Lebanon, where “israel”  illegally occupies a large section of Lebanese territory. Civilians have been the principal targets and victims in this conflict.

June 5, 2020

Since 1978 Israel has routinely breached Lebanese airspace, waters, and borders, which is illegal since it violates Lebanon’s territory and United Nations Security Council Resolution 425 and 1701.[122][123][124]

The most frequent breaches are overflights by Israeli war planes and drones; such violations have occurred since the inception of the Israeli–Lebanese conflict, and have happened continuously and almost daily since the 2006 Lebanon war, being the source of much conflict between Lebanon and Israel.[125]

Israeli warplanes sometimes stage mock attacks on Lebanese cities, and emit sonic booms that frighten civilians.[126][127]

The 2006 Second Lebanon War killed 1,200 Lebanese, mostly civilians, and 160 Israelis, mostly soldiers.

In 2007 the Lebanese government complained that Israeli planes had flown into Lebanese airspace 290 times within four months, and that Israeli troops had crossed the border 52 times.[128]

In 2006 French Defense Minister Michele Alliot-Marie stated: “I remind that the violations of the airspace are extremely dangerous, they are dangerous first because they may be felt as hostile by forces of the coalition that could be brought to retaliate in cases of self defense and it would be a very serious incident.”[129]

IDF terrorist  soldiers at Lebanon border take time for Hanukkah celebration

US officials on visit in Israel also demanded that Israel stop the overflights since they undermined the standing of Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora.[130]

On 19 August 2010, the Lebanese military reported that 12 aircraft belonging to the IDF entered into Lebanese territory, which they claim is a violation of Resolution 1701. In the three incidents, the IDF planes made circle maneuvers, fired no shots and left Lebanese airspace soon after.[131]

The UN has continuously protested the repeated Israeli overflights.[132][133] Lebanese officials fear the escalation in overflights heighten tensions and could lead to war.[134][135]

Israel rejects such criticism, and claim the overflights are necessary.[136][137] In spite of this, a leaked US cable shows that Israel offered to stop such violations.[138]

On land, the Blue Line is often crossed,[139] as well as incursions into the Shebaa Farms (which Israel imagines Israeli territory as part of Golan Heights, which it captured from Syria in 1967, but it is legally Lebanese territory).[140]

The 2010 Israel–Lebanon border clash was also performed on the basis of claims of such violations.[141]

At sea, Israeli gunboats have shot into Lebanese territorial waters, and there have been Lebanese claims that Israel is breaching the law of the sea and might lay claim on Lebanese natural resources through the Tamar gas field.[142][143][144][145]

Hezbollah uses such violations as justification for the legimitacy of their continued armed resistance against Israel.[146]

Abbas, a chubby young boy, sat on the side of narrow village road, held his injured mother’s hand and wept.
“Don’t leave me mother, don’t go don’t go.”.
“Take care of your brothers and sisters.” The mother moaned softly, as her eyes closed leaving two white slits. A shrapnel had cut into her chest and almost severed her right arm. Blood stained mother and child.
Abbas, his mother, brother, aunts and a grandmother, 18 in total, were cramped inside a small white minivan, fleeing their village in south Lebanon when an Israeli rocket pierced the roof of the car.
Now the survivors were scattered on the road or in the shadow of a building crying, while Inside the van lay the headless corpse of an uncle, a dead grandmother and a neighbour.
“Why are you leaving me,” Abbas started yelling at his mother, as her arm fell on the ground,
He buried his face in his hands and wept, his brother, 12 year old Ali, stood on the other side of the mother, his hand bandaged and eyes staring into the horizon as a Lebanese Red Cross than started helping the survivors.

According to reports, at least 130 people have died in Tyre since the begining of the airstrikes. (Photo by Ghaith Abdul-Ahad/Getty Images)

The Decolonization of Israel has Begun

For seventy-two years, Palestine has endured a perpetual war. After several successive waves of immigration, the State of Israel has invented from scratch a “culture” around an imaginary people (including ethnic groups from the Caucasus to Ethiopia), an artificial language (modern Hebrew has little to do with the ancient patois and is written in Aramaic characters) and a fictitious history (despite UNESCO’s objections, the ancient city-state of Jerusalem has been confused with the State of Israel).

Keeping them safe from the world, although since WW2,  Zionism has been their only enemy.

Excerpt

It was not until the Dreyfus affair in France that Theodor Hertzl committed himself to converting the Jewish diaspora to Anglo-US Zionism.

He conceived a colonial system on the model of the one put into practice by Cecil Rhodes in Africa and gradually managed to rally many atheist Jewish intellectuals.

When the British and American governments were occupied by Puritans (David Lloyd George and Woodrow Wilson) during World War I, an agreement was reached between the two countries to create Israel.

The principle of a “Jewish national home” was made public by a letter from Foreign Secretary Lord Balfour to Lord Rothschild, and President Wilson officially established the creation of Israel as one of the 14 American war aims. At the peace conference, Emir Faisal endorsed the Zionist project and pledged his support.

Jews began to colonize Mandate Palestine with the help of the local bourgeoisie, but at the expense of the common people, and then to emancipate themselves from London.

In 1948, an atheist Jew, Ben Gurion, this time five years ahead of the Rhodesian model, proclaimed Israel’s independence before the United Nations had defined its borders. Only then did the rabbis massively support the colonial project.

For seventy-two years, Palestine has endured a perpetual war. After several successive waves of immigration, the State of Israel has invented from scratch a “culture” around an imaginary people (including ethnic groups from the Caucasus to Ethiopia), an artificial language (modern Hebrew has little to do with the ancient patois and is written in Aramaic characters) and a fictitious history (despite UNESCO’s objections, the ancient city-state of Jerusalem has been confused with the State of Israel).

The assimilation of this intellectual creation to the Puritan colonial project was solidified around a sacralized interpretation of certain Nazi crimes, described as “holocaust” by the Puritans and “shoah” by the Jews.

Nothing in this fake construction resists analysis. Everything is done there to increase the continuity of a People and a State, even though it is only an Anglo-Saxon colony.

However, all the colonial states have disappeared today with the exception of Israel and, with time, the majority of today’s Israelis were born in Israel. Two conceptions of this state now coexist:

– on the one hand the supporters of Anglo-Saxon colonialism who claim sovereignty of the lands from the Nile to the Euphrates. They think they are an island of pirates, sheltering criminals from all over the world and refusing any extradition agreement.

They claim to be a “chosen people”, superior to other men, and consider Israel to be “The Jewish State”.

– The other is people who want to live in peace with their neighbours, regardless of their religion or lack of religion and regardless of their ethnicity.

They want nothing to do with the colonial fantasies of past centuries, but do not intend to give up anything they inherited from their fathers, even if they have stolen it. They would like to see the bewildering social problems of their homeland solved.

These are two irreconcilable visions embodied by two Prime Ministers, Benjamin Netanyahu and his “deputy” General Benny Gantz.

This tandem will never be able to resolve any conflict with the Arab peoples. At most, it will at last be able to consider the terrible injustices of the country. For example, nearly 50,000 citizens who passed through the Nazi death camps are today surviving in the country as best they can, without help from the State, which ignores them but has cashed in the compensation intended for them, claiming to save them.

By the simple pressure of Time and Demography, after three successive and useless legislative elections, the decolonization of Israel has begun.
