“israel” Tampered With Video of Killer Strike

“If the Israelis are confusing unarmed children with terrorists, I suppose it’s just fine to confuse All Jews with Zionist terrorists.”
― Dmitry Dyatlov

A painstaking reconstruction of a series of Israeli airstrikes that killed two Palestinian boys on the roof of a building in Gaza City this summer suggests that Israel’s military tampered with its own surveillance footage of the attack, possibly to conceal evidence that the children were visible to the drone pilots who carried out what were supposed to be nonlethal “warning strikes.”

The visual investigation of the July 14 killing of Luai Kahil and Amir al-Nimra, both 14, was carried out by Forensic Architecture, a research group based in London that works with communities affected by state violence (and has previously partnered with The Intercept), and B’Tselem, an Israeli human rights group that documents Israel’s abuses in the occupied Palestinian territories it has controlled since 1967. [There were plenty more massacres before 1967]

Forensic Architecture created a detailed visual timeline of the incident, which offers compelling evidence that a video report shared on Twitter by the Israel Defense Forces in the immediate aftermath of the attack distorted the sequence of strikes to give the false impression that the roof was unoccupied when the missile that killed the boys was fired.

Using open-source visual evidence — including a rooftop selfie taken by the boys shortly before the airstrike that killed them, timestamped security camera footage of the sequence of Israeli strikes, witness video of the mangled bodies of the two boys after they had been torn apart by shrapnel from what Israel described as the first in a series of four “warning strikes,” and a YouTube cooking video recorded by three children in a nearby kitchen during the attack — Forensic Architecture concluded that the Israeli army had misleadingly substituted footage of the third missile strike for what it described as the first impact, which had killed the boys.

According to the investigators — who also relied on witness testimony, local news footage, and an architectural model of the destroyed building in Gaza City’s al-Katiba Square — by the time the third strike hit the building, nine minutes after the first missile, the bodies of the boys had already been evacuated from the roof.

Eyal Weizman, the Israeli architect who founded Forensic Architecture and was the principal investigator of the strike that killed the two boys, argues that Israel’s own video of the incident proves that the army’s entire concept of warning strikes is flawed.

“In a city like Gaza, subject to so many attacks, of so many different types, it is unreasonable to expect civilians to become munitions experts, and to understand that a small missile is a message rather than the normal attempt to kill and destroy,” Weizman wrote in an email to The Intercept on Wednesday.

“We can see in this case a demonstration of this misunderstanding. When the first responders ran to the roof to evacuate the teens after the first strike, it was likely because they did not understand that this was a warning, as they wouldn’t run onto the roof of a building about to be demolished.”

Four cousins were killed in two separate drone strikes after they were “mistaken for Hamas fighters.” That’s the explanation.

Hagai El-Ad, executive director of B’Tselem, told The Intercept that the video posted on Twitter by the Israeli army, along with the boast that the attack demonstrated “the IDF’s intelligence and operational capabilities, which will become deeper and stronger as necessary,” aroused suspicions from the start, since it seemed to include surveillance footage of all four initial strikes but showed no trace of the two teenage boys killed by the first blast.

“We knew from the outset, from our field research, from testimonies we collected, as well as from social media, that Amir and Luai were on the roof of the building when they were killed. They were in plain sight, in broad daylight, on a large, empty roof — in principle, as exposed to aerial surveillance as one could be.

Yet in the video footage released by the Israeli army, they are not seen. This was very difficult to reconcile, so it was important for us to try and not leave this unanswered,” El-Ad explained in an email.

“Through the expertise of Forensic Architecture,” he added, “it was possible, step by step, to understand what happened on July 14, including how the Israeli army omitted the first ‘warning’ strike — the lethal one which killed the two teens — from the video it released, replacing it with footage of the third strike, shot from a different camera.”

Since actual footage of the first strike seems to have been concealed by the Israeli army, Amit Gilutz, a B’Tselem spokesperson, said in a statement that “we don’t know if the boys were visible to the military before the first strike.”

As The Intercept reported earlier this year, however, Israel’s military has repeatedly claimed that its surveillance drones give remote operators the ability to call off airstrikes when they detect the presence of civilians near targets intended for destruction.

In this case, since other figures — the bystanders who rushed to the roof to try to save the boys — were clearly visible in surveillance video of the second strike, the Forensic Architecture investigators are convinced that the two boys should have been visible in the unreleased footage.

Family picnickers killed on Gaza beach: Guardian investigation casts doubt on Israeli claim that army was not to blame

After the Israeli military said in a statement on Tuesday that the Forensic Architecture video report was the first visual evidence it had seen of the two boys’ presence on the roof, the researchers responded by daring the army to produce the surveillance footage of the first strike.

The investigators tweeted at the Israeli military: “share with us the footage of the first warning strike to hit the Katibah building on 14 July 2018, and we’ll show you Luai and Amir.”

The Forensic Architecture timeline also suggests that an Israeli military spokesperson, Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, lied to the New York Times on the day of the attack, when he claimed that the first four smaller-scale strikes, intended to warn civilians to evacuate the area, were fired more than an hour before the building was blown up.

According to the security camera footage obtained by Forensic Architecture, a high-intensity missile was fired at the building at 6:02 p.m. that day, less than 17 minutes after the first warning strike that killed the boys.

Nonetheless, the perception that Israel takes extraordinary measures to warn Palestinian civilians to evacuate before dangerous bombing begins in Gaza is widespread among Israelis.

Just hours after the boys were killed on July 14, an Israeli civilian in the nearby town of Sderot, Refael Yifrah, complained in a radio interview that she had been warned by the local civil defense authorities to take cover just seconds before an incoming missile fired from Gaza exploded at around 6:15 p.m.

“It’s better to be in Gaza where they get warning that they’re going to be fired upon in one neighborhood or another and they evacuate,” Yifrah said. “Here, there’s an alert, no one knows where it’s going to land.”

Eyal Weizman has long contested Israel’s claim that firing warning shots to encourage civilians to evacuate is permissible under international humanitarian law.

“Israel has been using warning tactics for many years,” Weizman wrote during Israel’s aerial bombardment of Gaza in 2014. “They started as phoned-through messages, informing people that they had minutes to collect their belongings and vacate the building before it was bombed.

Finding that they couldn’t always get through, however, the Israeli Army began to use so-called ‘roof knock’ strikes. These involve the firing of a low- or non-explosive missile — usually from a drone — at the roof of a building that is to be destroyed. A bomb that devastates the building follows the missile a short time later.”

“Israeli military lawyers argue that if residents are warned, and do not evacuate, then they can be considered legitimate collateral damage,” he added. “Under this interpretation of the law, the civilian victims become human shields. This is a gross misuse of international law.

It is illegal to fire at civilians, even if the intention is to warn them. It is ridiculous to ask them to understand, in the commotion and chaos of war, that being shot at is a warning — and it is outrageous to claim that this is undertaken to save their lives.”

Weizman’s team noted in its report on the killing of the Palestinian boys this summer that video recorded by witnesses who rushed to evacuate Luai and Amir after the first strike showed a fragmentation pattern on the roof identified by weapons experts as “consistent with the explosion of a munition loaded with shrapnel — specifically designed as a lethal weapon.”

“The fact that they shoot munitions of enhanced lethality” in the guise of warning shots “is outrageous,” Weizman said in a recent interview with The Intercept in London. “It’s not even just like a kind of standard explosive,” he added.

“They say that a warning strike should be noisy only … like a firework, but the design of that is to tear through flesh. If you look at the catalogues, the way they describe those fragmentation shrapnel sleeves is exactly to increase the lethality of those strikes.”

His team’s reconstruction of what happened in Gaza was “very much a way of honoring two lives that have been lost,” Weizman added, but also a way to draw attention to Israel’s policy on warning strikes. “It’s so important because the issue of warning shots is exactly exemplifying the entire paradox of Israel’s self-perception as a humanitarian party or the most moral army in the world,” Weizman said.

Understanding what happened in al-Katiba Square last summer was not just about “showing the IDF is being dishonest about the way they present it,” he said, “it’s also allowing us to ask much larger questions about the use of warning, and whether it’s legal or illegal.”

Those questions, for Weizman, “go right to the heart of the humanitarian paradox that underlines Israel’s attitude toward Gaza — that is, Israel saying, ‘We abide by the law.’ We show how a certain interpretation of international law effectively could proliferate violence rather than contain it.

It’s kind of the paradox of the lesser evil that is within that approach, i.e. ‘If we warn, we can bomb civilian targets, hence we will warn and proliferate and this will allow us to use that tool much more widely.’”

El-Ad, the B’Tselem director, also stressed that his organization has no faith whatsoever in Israel’s Military Advocate General to investigate the killing of the boys or the apparent faking of video evidence by the army spokesperson’s office. “To be clear: We did not publish what happened on July 14 because we wanted the MAG to ‘examine’ or ‘investigate.’

Based on hundreds of case files B’Tselem worked on throughout the years, we know that an announcement by the army that they will investigate in nothing more than the beginning of an orchestrated whitewash, eventually leading to the closing of yet another file with impunity. We have no illusions in this regard,” El-Ad told The Intercept on Tuesday.

“We published the facts of the July 14 killing of Amir al-Nimra and Luai Kahil because their families deserve to know how they died, and because we at B’Tselem still hold that facts do matter.

It is true that just knowing the facts does not suffice in order to bring about accountability or end injustice, but they are the foundation for any such outcome,” he added.

“As human beings we should be morally outraged by what happened on July 14, because it is simply that: morally outrageous,” El-Ad continued. “Our hope is that the public, in Israel and around the world, will be able to see reality through the smokescreen of Israeli propaganda and demand a different future — and that the international community will finally stand up to its obligations in order to bring that future about.”

Israel’s air defense experiments with lasers and algorithms to stay a step ahead of its enemies

No other country in the developed world is shot at as often as Israel – making it a forge of innovation for air defense systems

telegraph.co.uk

The Islamic Jihad rocket streaked out of Gaza and through the night sky towards the greater Tel Aviv area. 

Within seconds it had been detected by Israeli radar and a computer system began furious calculations based on the rocket’s trajectory, speed, and type. 

The computer’s conclusion flashed a moment later across the screen of Itai Aizenkraft, a 21-year-old lieutenant in the Israeli Air Force: the rocket was going to crash into a civilian neighborhood.  

Lt Aizenkraft gave the order and an Iron Dome battery outside Tel Aviv roared to life, firing an interceptor missile to bring down the incoming rocket.

“The whole thing was over in a matter of seconds,” he said afterwards. 

No other country in the developed world is shot at as often as Israel. Around 1,300 rockets were fired from Gaza last…

Lies That Hamas Has Been Firing Rockets at Israel

“the Israeli government presented no evidence that rock-throwing and other violence by some demonstrators seriously threatened Israeli soldiers across the border fence.”

The New York Times claims that, until the demonstrations began in Gaza last month, Hamas had been firing “a fairly steady tempo” of rockets at Israel. In fact, it had been firing none.

On March 30, fourteen peaceful demonstrators were killed and hundreds wounded when Israeli soldiers fired across the border fence at unarmed Palestinians in Gaza.

The day of the crime, New York Times reported that, although the protests were “billed as the start of a peaceful, six-week sit-in”, Palestinian protesters had “quickly turned violent”.

The Times added, “But as some began hurling stones, tossing Molotov cocktails and rolling burning tires at the fence, the Israelis responded with tear gas and gunfire.”

Three days later, the editorial board of the Times acknowledged that the claim that Palestinians were “hurling stones, tossing Molotov cocktails and rolling burning tires at the fence” was the “Israeli version of events”.

In other words, the Times tacitly acknowledged that it had presented the Israeli propaganda version — in which the violence was instigated by the Palestinians — as though truthful.

By contrast, as Human Rights Watch noted, “the Israeli government presented no evidence that rock-throwing and other violence by some demonstrators seriously threatened Israeli soldiers across the border fence.”

Rather, “The high number of deaths and injuries was the foreseeable consequence of granting soldiers leeway to use lethal force outside of life-threatening situations in violation of international norms, coupled with the longstanding culture of impunity within the Israeli army for serious abuses.”

The Times hasn’t been faring any better with its reporting on Gaza since. In fact, it gets worse.

In an article published as “News Analysis” on April 15, David M. Halbfinger wrote in the Times about Hamas’s attitude toward such non-violent resistance.

Under the headline “Hamas Sees Gaza Protests as Peaceful — and as a ‘Deadly Weapon’“, he characterizes Hamas as presenting a mixed message, supporting peaceful protests while routinely engaging in violence. He writes:

To its rockets Israel had responded with the Iron Dome antimissile system. To its tunnels Israel was answering with a $2 billion reinforced-concrete wall buried deep underground.

And on Sunday, Israel said it had uncovered and destroyed the longest operational tunnel yet from Gaza.

It was no surprise, then, that after a grass-roots idea for a peaceful, long-lasting protest along the Gaza fence started gaining widespread support, Hamas brought a halt to what had been a fairly steady tempo of rocket launches into Israel and threw its considerable organizational might behind the demonstrations.

That is a lie.

Hamas had not been routinely launching rockets into Israel until the protests began.

Hamas had not been firing rockets into Israel at all.

Not in the days prior. Not in the weeks prior. Not in the months prior. Not even in the years prior.

According to the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), 25 rockets fired from Gaza struck Israel in 2015, and 15 rockets in 2016. The IDF itself identified none of those rockets as having been fired by Hamas.

In 2017, according to the IDF, 35 rockets and mortars were fired at Israel from Gaza. Most of them, about 30, had been fired in the very last month of the year, after US President Donald Trump on December 6 said Jerusalem was Israel’s capital (even though East Jerusalem is under international law “occupied Palestinian territory”, and for the US to move its embassy there would be illegal).

About half of them landed inside Gaza.

The IDF also acknowledged that these rockets were not being fired by Hamas. Rather, as the Israeli daily Haaretz reported, the IDF attributed the attacks to “the desire by Islamic Jihad and other Salafi organizations to thwart the planned reconciliation between the Palestinian Authority and Hamas”, as well as Islamic Jihad’s “desire to avenge Israels destruction of a cross-border attack tunnel in October that killed 12 of the organizations operatives.”

The Zionist regime presents no evidence to back most of it’s claims. The world is to rely solely on it’s say so.

See, Hamas has actually long been trying to suppress the very rocket attacks the New York Times would have you believe it was responsible for routinely until the Gaza protests. Hamas and the Salafi groups firing these rockets are actually at odds with each other. 

Of course, Israel holds Hamas responsible for any rocket attacks — even though it knows that Hamas isn’t the one doing it.

This has been the situation for quite a long time. Every serious observer knows this. Halbfinger is the Times‘ Jerusalem Bureau Chief. He cannot not know this.

Data for this year isn’t so easily obtained. But according to the list compiled at Wikipedia, there were six rockets fired in January and five or more in February.

According to the list compiled by the Jewish Virtual Library, there were four rockets in January and one in February.

Pointing out the low number of rocket attacks is not to trivialize their seriousness. Indiscriminate rocket attacks on Israeli civilian population centers are a war crime. T

he point is that the Times‘ claim that there had been “a fairly steady tempo” of rocket attacks until the Gaza protests started last month is at best misleading. And the Times‘ insinuation that rockets that have been fired were fired by Hamas is also maliciously false.

Compare the Times‘ claim with the acknowledgment from Michael Kaplow writing last week in the Pittsburgh Jewish Chronicle that “Hamas has not fired a rocket in 14 months”.

I would challenge Kaplow even to support his implication that Hamas fourteen months ago was responsible for firing rockets at Israel; but regardless, it puts the lie to the Times claim that Hamas had been steadily raining down rockets on Israel until the demonstrations began last month.

The falseness of the Times‘ claim also goes to the broader propaganda purpose of the article.

What the Times won’t tell you is that, actually, it is Israel that has routinely violated its ceasefire agreements with Hamas — including the ceasefires in place prior to its major operations “Cast Lead” (2008-2009), “Pillar of Defense” (2012), and “Protective Edge” (2014).

Hamas has also since 2005 expressed its acceptance of a Palestinian state alongside Israel within the 1949 armistice lines (a.k.a. the 1967 lines or “Green Line”).

And there is a great deal more about Hamas, and the Israel-Palestine conflict in general, that the Times does not disclose to its readers. 

This kind of information isn’t reported — and lies like the above are reported — because the media fulfill the self-designated purpose of manufacturing consent for the US policy of supporting Israel’s crimes against the Palestinians.

Arab propaganda: where every word about Israel is a lie

PSYWAR: ‘The term is used “to denote any action which is practiced mainly by psychological methods with the aim of evoking a planned psychological reaction in other people”. Various techniques are used, and are aimed at influencing a target audience’s value system, belief system, emotionsmotivesreasoning, or behavior.”
I was going to go with projection or gaslighting but neither is exactly right by dictionary definition. In any case, this post is written by a laughably criminally insane Zionist.

israelnationalnews

The Arab propaganda war against Israel is not just a criminal enterprise. It isn’t just a political or ideological version of a consumer ad campaign. It isn’t just Jew-hate (1).

It’s a combination of all three. It’s an organized, sc‎ripted, planned program. (Israel’s is so scripted I know it all by heart)

It controls the definition of terms used to describe the Arab-Israel war. It uses those definitions to demonize and criminalize Israel. It’s doing this again today as Palestinian Authority (PA) leader Mahmoud Abbas calls for the UN to convene to discuss ‘Israeli aggression’ in Jerusalem (“Abbas Calls for UNSC Session Over Arab Rioting in Jerusalem”, Arutz Sheva,  October 28, 2014).

We’ll take a look at ‘Israeli aggression’ in a moment.

Arab propaganda communicates a steady stream of Jew-hate (2) to a world immersed in media and internet. It speaks every day to international and national audiences. It poisons truth.

It uses a vicious propaganda to prepare the world to accept total war against Israel and its Jews. It packages news. It produces TV images. It shapes words and pictures to create a fictional narrative of Arab innocence being brutalized by the oppressive, criminal Jew—who must be stopped at any cost. (hehe, gee, so much psyop power, compared to the fact that Jews own all the American mainstream media + Hollywood)

Take a look at how Arab propaganda handled a recent terror attack in Jerusalem. Last week, a three-month old Jewish infant and a 22-year old woman were murdered.

No one in the ME is safe from “Israel”.

Israel’s press reported the incident as a terror attack (“Baby killed as car rams crowd in Jerusalem terror attack”, Times of Israel, October 22, 2014). An Arab had driven his car up onto a Light Rail waiting platform. He then accelerated at high speed (for the narrow space he was in) down the length of the platform, killing the infant and injuring eight. The 22-year old woman died four days later. The Arab driver was himself killed as he jumped from his car and tried to run away.

Hamas ran the story differently. It didn’t see a terrorist using his car to kill Jews. It saw, “Palestinian driver dies of Israeli gunshot injuries”, Palestinian Information Center, October 23, 2014). It suggested that an innocent ‘youth’ had been killed by Jews (“Renewed violence in J’lem after killing of Palestinian youth at rail station”, ibid, October 23, 2014). (Well duh, that’s usually b the case, and it happens everyday)

IDF hero: Sgt Elor Azaria executed an unarmed and wounded Palestinian by shooting him close range in the head while he was down. His mama so defiant and proud she shows off Israel colors finger nails for camera.

Hamas used this incident to incite for more violence against Jews (“Hamas, Islamic Jihad salute Jerusalem terror attack, threaten new ‘Palestinian intifada’ in capital”, Jerusalem Post, October 23, 2014). One Hamas official, Mahmoud Zahar, described the call for more violence with the words,  “Escalating the resistance in the city is the solution to Israeli aggression” (“Hamas Official Declares Intifada in Jerusalem”, Arutz Sheva, October 25, 2014).

Remember that word, ‘escalating’. (actually I’m being entertained by the words Jew-hate, never hear such a vulgar expression except by lying Zionists who are not even Jewish) Hamas used it to call for more Arab violence against Jews. You’ll see in a moment how Arab propaganda used the same word to demonize Israel, not Arab violence.

Look at how Hamas used the phrase, ‘Israeli aggression’. Hamas calls attacks against Jews ‘resisting Israeli aggression’.

When you live in Israel, you come to understand what ‘Israeli aggression’ is: it’s the physical presence of Jews on land claimed by Muslims as theirs. (IDF well armed going into Palestinian neighborhoods looking for youths or an old man to target shoot, or maybe just to rob)

The very existence of Jews in Israel is seen an insult–an ‘aggression’–against Islam. Therefore, the Muslim must ‘resist’ that ‘aggression’ (the Jewish presence). (Nice try. The Palestinian Jews might have something else to say.)

In the case of this terror attack, ‘Israeli aggression’ took on a more sinister meaning. It meant that Jews had killed a Muslim Jew-killer(3).

They claim that the Jew is on ‘Muslim’ land. Killing a Muslim Jew-killer(4) on ‘Muslim land’ is an intolerable ‘aggression’.

Hence, the riots and the violence.

Manufactured language creates a moral high ground for the Arab cause. That ‘cause’ is to destroy Israel. The moral high ground is to purify ‘Palestine’–to remove all Jews from Israel so that the land remaining can be renamed, ‘Palestine’. (hehe, Jews have always been in Palestine)

The world loves Arab propaganda (sure, because corporate Jewish media is always disseminating it) . It has no issue with Jew-hate(5) in the name of a perverted ‘justice’.

The propagandists know this. To borrow a phrase that captures the ultra-modern nature of Arab propaganda, it’s ‘hybrid warfare’ (“Seeking For The Ukrainian Left,” Ari Rusila’s BalkanBlog, October 1, 2014). It’s a carefully crafted ‘theatre of mediawar with constant disinformation’ (ibid) flowing from multiple sources.

Hamas is one of those sources. Mahmoud Abbas is another. Remember how Hamas described its call for more violence against Jews as a call for ‘escalation’? Well, Abbas has reportedly sent an ‘urgent’ message to US President Obama about ‘the escalation of violence in Jerusalem’. He wants the US to intervene, to stop that escalation.

But he’s not talking about the escalation of anti-Jew violence Hamas had called for. He’s talking about Israel.

He wants the US to end Israel’s actions aimed at defending itself against Arab violence. He wants the US to end ‘Israeli escalation’ (“Abbas to Obama: Stop ‘Israeli Escalation’ in Jerusalem”, Arutz Sheva, October 27, 2014).

Hamas accuses Israel of ‘aggression’ when it is itself guilty of aggression. Abbas accuses Israel of ‘escalating violence’ when it is the Arab who escalates violence.

Now, Abbas conflates ‘Israeli aggression’ to mean both ‘Israeli ‘escalation’ and Israel’s self-defensive actions against Arab violence.

Virtually every word is a lie.

The G-d of Israel has a Story for you.  It’s the Story of the Final Jewish Redemption. Do you think Arab lies about Israel will play a role in that Story?

Yup.

THE REAL REASON FOR WAR

“It is not true that I wished for war in 1939, neither I nor anyone else in Germany.
War was provoked exclusively by those international statesmen who were of Jewish
race or who worked in the interests of international Jewry.” ~ Adolf Hitler Last Will
and Testament.”*

TRADE WAR
General Robert Wood testified that in 1936 Winston Churchill told him that Germany is getting too strong and must be smashed (p.130). Bernard Baruch, the American banker agreed in an interview with F. D. R. Roosevelt: “If we
Baruch, the American banker agreed in an interview with F. D. R. Roosevelt: “If we keep prices down there is no reason why we shouldn’t get the customers from belligerent nations that they had had to drop because of the war. In that event Germany‟s barter system will be destroyed.” ~ New York Times 14 September 1939.*

Winston Churchill was a dilettante. His sexual preferences were ambiguous. It has been confirmed that before, during and after WW2, Churchill and many members of the establishment were regular patrons of homosexual clubs and orgies where pedophilia was openly practiced.  Churchill’s visits to Morocco and the South of France were said to be the places where Churchill took breaks to indulge in his pastime as an artist. they were nothing of the kind. These two locations provided further opportunity for pedophilia activities away from the public eye. Wartime Premiere Winston Churchill was despised at Marrakesh, Morocco where he was delivered of small Arab boys for his depraved pleasures.*

War is good for some, bad for most.

Israel Is Proud of Who We Are

Mr. Bennett is Israel’s minister of education, minister of diaspora affairs and the leader of the Jewish Home Party.

Israel is no stranger to criticism. Both within our country and outside of it, there is no shortage of opportunity to debate and disagree. Recently, even many outsiders who claim to love Israel have taken to criticizing it. In these very pages, Ronald Lauder, the president of the World Jewish Congress, wrote recently about his concerns about what is happening to Israel, apparently reflecting the worries of others in the Jewish diaspora when he suggests that Israel is somehow too Jewish or that its democracy is under threat.

So let me be clear: We Israelis are proud of who we are. We are proud of our Jewish traditions and identity, and we are proud of the equality and freedoms for all our people.

Image result for baghdad bob animated gif

As minister of education and a previous minister of the economy, I can attest to our efforts to ensure equality in education, academia and employment for Israel’s Arab communities. The Ministry of Education has found a year-on-year increases in Arab students graduating from high school, with around 63 percent of all Arab students completing their studies — just a few points below the national average of 68 percent. These figures are expected to rise even further over the next five years. We have seen an increase in employment for Arab women.

But at the same time, there is no denying that Israel is a Jewish state. This is why last month our government passed the Nation State Law, which reaffirms the centrality of the Jewish identity and nature of the state of Israel. This law now sits proudly alongside Israel’s other Basic Laws (which carry quasi-constitutional power) that reinforce the freedom of expression and equality for all citizens of Israel. Our self-identification as a Jewish homeland will never change. It is a central tenet of Zionism.

While I normally would happily respect the views of Jews all over the world — as different or as similar as they may be to my own — on this claim I cannot remain silent. Keeping Israel as the Jewish nation-state does not threaten the future of the Jewish people; it safeguards it. Protecting Jewish traditions, just as they safeguarded our people through two millenniums of exile, is the only way to be sure that Israel can continue to be a strong and vibrant democracy in a very difficult region.

Israel is Lying, What They Bombed in 2007 Wasn’t a Nuclear Facility

Israel has been stealing nuclear secrets and covertly making bombs since the 1950s.

”We have a clear stance in Syria: we do not wish to see any nuclear bombs in the Middle East Region; there is no need for this. Of course, we also do not want to see the nuclear weapons, which Israel possesses.”-Bashar Al-Assad

Image result for Israel lies

The Israelis are lying because what they bombed in 2007 was not a nuclear facility because it is very well known that Syria doesn’t have such kinds of facilities and actually there isn’t any nuclear program in Syria. They targeted a certain military base in Syria under the pretext of attacking a nuclear facility, so because of that at the present time they are revealing that to send a signal to Iran that they are ready to bomb Iran’s nuclear facilities and the Israeli air force is able to reach any place in the region.

Israel, unlike Iran, never signed up to the 1968 NPT so could not violate it. But it almost certainly broke a treaty banning nuclear tests, as well as countless national and international laws restricting the traffic in nuclear materials and technology.

The list of nations that secretly sold Israel the material and expertise to make nuclear warheads, or who turned a blind eye to its theft, include today’s staunchest campaigners against proliferation: the US, France, Germany, Britain and even Norway.

Israel’s arms industry too, is a useful service for western powers. It markets its weapons as “battle tested” – an euphemistic way to say they have been tried out on Palestinian civilians. Testing arms – from drones to “less lethal” riot control weapons – on a literally captive population against which the settler-colonial regime is waging a constant low-intensity warfare.

Israel lied about who broke the truce. Israel lies about everything.
