UN reports that Israel will destroy Lebanon

With Israel, everybody loses

LISBON (Reuters) – United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said on Monday he was worried about the possibility of a direct confrontation between Israel and Lebanon’s Hezbollah movement. “The worst nightmare would be if there is a direct confrontation between Israel and Hezbollah…the level of destruction in Lebanon would be absolutely devastating, so there are major points of concern around this situation.” *

Before this happens, let’s review the history of Israel and Hezbollah.

Hezbollah was formed in the 1980s as a resistance movement against Israel’s occupation of southern Lebanon. It is legal and legitimate resistance.

2006: Israel/Lebanon: Israeli Indiscriminate Attacks Killed Most Civilians. According to new research, the conflict resulted in at least 1,109 Lebanese deaths, the vast majority of whom were civilians, 4,399 injured, and an estimated 1 million displaced. 

A peace offer was vetoed just prior to the US / Israeli war on Lebanon.1 Since the war started, there has been much discussion concerning the use of (US) cluster bombs, bunker-busting bombs and chemical weapons – all illegal – presently being used in Lebanon. Some have also said illegal bombs are also being used in Palestine.- 2006

In order to manufacture a pretext, small teams of soldiers were sent into Lebanon on “infiltration exercises” until two soldiers were arrested by Lebanese forces. The Zionist media then spun the incident into a tale about a “cross-border raid” by lucky Hezbollah fighters. Bizarrely, there appears to be two kinds of lucky Gentiles: those who provide Zionists with an excuse to slaughter them, and those who are on the Zionist payroll.

Israel’s army chief, Dan Halutz, sold $26,000 worth of shares at noon on July 12, three hours after the alleged “cross-border raid”. The next day, the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange index plummeted by 8.3%. Halutz claimed that he did not think there would be a war when he sold the shares, implying that the timing was just a lucky coincidence.

Israeli Cluster Bomb use in Lebanon

Israel then proceeded to carpet Lebanon with 1.2 million cluster bomblets, even though these were known to be highly inaccurate, bestowing a lethal legacy of hundreds of thousands of unexploded bomblets that would go on to kill and maim civilians, one-third of whom were children. Most of the cluster rockets were fired in the final few days of the war leading up to the ceasefire, as Israel was determined to get in just as much ethnic cleansing as it possibly could. Israel deployed phosphorous bombs, since these were known to increase mortality due to organ failure resulting from chemicals absorbed into the body after the bombs had burnt the skin away to the bone.

That is, if the victim had not already been reduced to a lump of charred meat. At first, Israel tried to claim that phosphorus was only used to “mark targets”; it was then forced to concede that it had in fact used phosphorous shells against “military targets”. Unfortunately, these “military targets” included 8-year-old boys and young Lebanese girls. Israel was also believed to have targeted Lebanon with thermobaric or vacuum bombs.

The Israeli airstrikes into fuel tanks at the Jiyeh power station in Lebanon caused the spillage of over 15, 000 tons of oil into the Mediterranean Sea. The indiscriminate use of cluster bombs at the tail end of the conflict continues to hunt civilians within the catchment area of the attack by Israel.

Israel caused an environmental disaster by bombing Lebanon’s Jiyeh power plant, spilling 15,000 tonnes of heavy fuel oil into the Mediterranean, poisoning the water and killing marine life. As part of Israel’s long-term ethnic cleansing program, Lebanon was dumped with uranium dust. US planes were stopping at UK airports en route to Israel, carrying laser-guided bombs with depleted uranium-tipped warheads destined for the Israeli Air Force. The Zionist war criminals’ terror campaign also included firing at the very center of the crosses on Red Cross ambulances, bombing UN observers after giving assurances that UN positions would not be targeted, and killing 33 farm workers and wounding 20 others as they were picking peaches.

In October 1992, an El Al cargo Boeing 747 crashed into this apartment building in Amsterdam Bijlmermeer [edit correction]. Some one thousand people in the vicinity complained of health problems after the crash. It was later revealed by Dutch and Israeli sources that El Al Flight 1862 was transporting precursor chemical weapons substances to Israel from the United States, including dimethyl methylphosphonate, hydrofluoric acid, and isopropanol, in addition to depleted uranium.

Israel then fabricated a cock and bull story about “buildings being used to store weapons”, in an attempt to justify the murder of peaceful, unarmed agricultural workers. By the time world opinion had compelled Israel into accepting a ceasefire (which it reneged on), the conflict had killed well over 1,000 Lebanese and over 100 Israelis. Lebanese casualties were mostly civilians whereas Israel’s dead were mostly IDF forces. Israel’s Gaza initiative killed hundreds of Palestinians; the number of Palestinian dead in 2006 was about 400 higher than the 2005 toll. As for the three abducted soldiers who were the casus belli for Israel’s aggression, not one of them had been sighted by the end of 2006.

The Qana Massacre

Deliberate Israeli bombing of civilian neighborhoods in Lebanon constitutes a war crime

Press release from Workers World publishers, 17 April 1996. The United States sends $7 million each day to Israel so that it can carry out the Pentagon’s proxy wars against the oppressed people of the Middle East. Use the money for jobs at home, not Israeli aggression against Arab people.

Israel Out Of Lebanon! Stop The Bombing Now! Socialist Workers call for protests
Statement was issued by Socialist Workers Party candidates James Harris, for U.S. president, and Laura Garza, for vice president, 17 April 1996, in The Militant, 29 April 1996. The Socialist Workers campaign places the blame for the destruction and slaughter in Lebanon on those who systematically unleashed the terror, the Zionist masters of the colonial-settler state of Israel and its backers in Washington and other imperialist capitals.

Tel Aviv Launches Terror Campaign
By Brian Taylor, The Militant, 29 April 1996. Israel’s “Operation Grapes of Wrath” is the latest act of aggression (including the massacre at Qana and massive civilian dislocation) and has been the most serious escalation by Israeli forces since 1993 and the first assault on the Lebanese capital, Beirut, since 1982.
Letter to the Editor of the The New York Times,
By Ronald Bleier, [7 May 1996] Israel—backed by the U.S. veto at the Security Council— will determine when to stop its barbarous shelling of Qana and cease forcing half a million people to leave their homes. The latest Israeli-U.S. proposals, calling on Hezbollah to stop its attacks in the Israeli held “security zone” ignore widespread Arab resistance to Israel’s illegal occupation of 440 square miles of Southern Lebanon.

JCOME Press Release
By the Jewish Committee on the Middle East, 9 May 1996. The evidence is now overwhelming that Israel’s unprecedented attack on the U.N. base at Qana in southern Lebanon last month was a deliberate act as the U.N. itself has recently concluded, and that the highest officials in Israel have purposefully tried to deceive the U.N. and lied to the world about what happened at Qana and why.

Massacre in Lebanon: Israelis knew, and U.S. knew they knew
By Hillel Cohen, Workers World, 16 May 1996. An Israeli artillery barrage on April 18 killed 102 Lebanese civilians in the UN “peacekeeping” encampment at Qana. The UN confirms that the attack was a deliberate move by the Israeli army. The UN General Assembly had already condemned Israel for the 16-day offensive in Lebanon, but that received little notice in the U.S. media.

Israel’s Blitzkreig (excerpt)
By Alexander Cockburn, The Nation, 20 May 1996. Israeli onslaught on Lebanon ignored in US controlled press. The Hezbollah was represented as an Iran-backed, Syrian-manipulated terror gang. But in fact merely resisted an illegal Israeli occupation of southern Lebanon (the “security zone”). You would not know from the coverage that Hezbollah is a political party that has elected representatives in the Lebanese Parliament.

Qana massacre coverup successful
Mid-East Realities, 2 July 1996. The premeditated Qana massacre and the U.S./Israeli coverup. The political fall out for Peres. Attached is an article by Robert Fisk, The Independent, 1 June 1996 An Israeli army operation to plant booby-trap bombs inside the United Nations zone in southern Lebanon led to the Qana massacre last month in which well over 100 Lebanese civilians were killed by Israeli shells while sheltering in a UN base.

Documents subsequent to Qana

Smart missile scares Lebanon
By Robert Fisk, The Independent, 7 July 1998. Israel has introduced a new Spike guided anti-personnel rocket in occupied Lebanon. The “Spike” is believed to be made by the Israeli Raphael missile company, which has close technical and financial links with the US Lockheed company in Florida. It was previously used to assassinate political leaders.

The Landscape of Opposition

By Edward Said, [source unknown], [7 March 2001]. Israel’s defeat in south Lebanon, its hasty withdrawal, and the still turbulent situation there requires sober analysis free of the distortions of the US media. Lebanon was never really about the “defence” of Israel’s northern border, but originally to defeat the PLO and then to change Lebanon’s political structure to Israel’s advantage, and finally to pressure Syria into accepting its diktats.

The Astonishing Zionist Mother’s blog: “Here We Fight”

The Jewish anxiety is not necessarily the fear of the “merciless and hateful goyim” but more probably a fear of self-reflection – looking in the mirror – taking responsibility for one’s own actions once and for all.-Gilad Atzmon

Ever want to see into the mind of a TRUE “Israeli” believer?  A Soldier’s Mother The Voice of One Israeli Mother, never fails to astonish me.

 Zionist mother: “We will not give up a part to appease the Arabs. THEY are the ones who would occupy it; they are the ones who seek to conquer it and if they can do that with threats and violence, then that will be the path that they take.”

[Mind you, the current borders of the State of Israel are the result both of war and of diplomatic agreements among European Zionists and colonial powers.]

The Palestinian Jews were the first to be conquered!

For the last few days, I have suffered in silence as I read the words of others, as I heard them express one of several absurd and inaccurate comments. Most prevalent, and most annoying is the one where people suggest that the US should not move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem because of the threat of violence. This is nothing short of appeasement and will end as badly as it did in the 1930s with Hitler. You cannot appease evil. Not then, not now, not ever.

Suggesting that we live in fear of what the Arabs might do, is nothing less than a formula for disaster. We lived that reality for 2,000 years and with the rebirth of Israel, that time, that mindset was supposed to have faded away. I was once told by a Jewish man, brilliant of mind, kind and generous, that when he walked the streets of the Poland of his youth, he and his friends would step into the gutter if a Christian “neighbor” was walking on the sidewalk. The alternative was to risk a beating. “I would be dead,” I told him without thinking and wished then that I could take those words back. What good would they do, more than 50 years after he was liberated from the hell of Auschwitz? This idea that you must cower in fear of what others might do is the mentality of the ghettos of Poland – and we left them long ago.

Image result for israel: separate sidewalks for palestinians and jews

Palestinians must walk on separate sidewalks from Jews.

We will not live our lives here in Israel out of fear. Jerusalem is ours by right and whether the decision to move the Embassy is smart or not, it should be done. We will not take smart over right.

Years ago, my family was caught in a missile attack on the northern border. Like many others, we rushed to a safe area and waited. When the all-clear sounded and in the hours that followed, thousands of Israelis vacationing in the north headed south, ending their vacations early and leaving the north shockingly uncrowded in the month of August.

Palestine greatest weapon

My husband and I debated what to do, spoke to people who lived there, and listened to the army’s advice. Stay. Return to normal. We stayed. One of the things that solidfied that decision was hearing one of our children beg us to go home and we told him that this IS our home. What would you do if they attacked our village, we asked him. We should fight, he told us and it was so easy with a child of about 10 to explain that this too is our home, here close to the border with Lebanon. Here we fight. Today, he is a soldier in the army of Israel; he has fought in two wars. He carries a gun, drives an ambulance, and steps forward without hesitation whenever he is needed.

ONE type of Israeli weapon

We have always fought for the right to live in our land – it is likely we always will. What will destroy us is not the Arabs, but the ghetto mentality that comes like a tidal wave from Jews in America and the leftists here in Israel. Jerusalem is our home, our soul, our heart. We will not give up a part to appease the Arabs. THEY are the ones who would occupy it; they are the ones who seek to conquer it and if they can do that with threats and violence, then that will be the path that they take.

Do we need Donald Trump to “recognize” Jerusalem as our capital. Heck no. We all know that Jerusalem has been ours for 3,000 years. How then can a religion that is but 1,400 years think it has more rights than we do. It is their Dome of the Rock that is built on the ruins of OUR Temples. Our relics that the earth surrenders when you dig deep.

If in the end, Donald Trump announces that he recognizes Israel as the rightful capital of the indigenous Jewish people, if he brings to fruition the promise he made last week to move the US Embassy, the proper response is “thank you” and “yes, of course.”

How dare you, who live on distant shores, offer to sacrifice Jerusalem for us. It is MY son on the front line defending this land, defending Jerusalem from the north, as my city defends it from the east. You have no right and more, you have much wrong.

Here is the truth of Jerusalem…told eloquently and in an entertaining fashion by a man who knows, a man who has spent his life on the front lines defending Israel with words, with truth. Listen to Danny Ayalon as he tells you the truth.

Zionist Occupation terrorists shut down event honoring Palestinian teachers in E Jerusalem

The demolition of schools and homes in the occupied West Bank is a near-daily occurrence, with Palestinian families often forced to pay fees of up to $41,000 for the destruction of their homes.

Construction of Israeli-only settlements, deemed illegal under international law, continues apace, with the full backing of Tel Aviv.

Palestine is not colonized, Palestine is a death camp. No Palestinian is to remain alive.

The Palestinian Directorate of Education organized a celebration to honor retired Palestinian teachers, but Israeli  forces raided the event and sent everyone home.

from Ma’an News

JERUSALEM (Ma’an) — Israeli forces on Saturday prevented a celebration from taking place for retired Palestinian teachers in occupied East Jerusalem, declaring the al-Shabbat al-Muslimat school a closed zone.

The event was organized by the Palestinian Directorate of Education, with the Palestinian Minister of Education, Sabri Saidam, and several ministry officials set to attend.

Local sources told Ma’an that Israeli police forces stopped Saidam on his way to the school and prevented him from reaching the area. Israeli forces raided the school and forced teachers to leave before they handing the principal of the school an order signed by the Israeli Minister of Internal Security to end the celebration.

Saidam released a statement condemning the prevention of the celebration, saying that it was part of Israel’s continuous targeting of Palestinian education in occupied East Jerusalem.

Hawaii False Nuclear Attack & the Hawaiian Nation

This is the virtually unknown story of Hawaii and the hidden Genocide being committed by the American government with the use of ‘blood quantum’ for the purpose of eliminating the Hawaiian national; and the reason America does this? Because according to their own laws, America never lawfully annexed Hawaii*, therefore according to law Hawaii never became a state, and if the Hawaiian land was never lawfully annexed, the only true claimant to the land, is the Hawaiian national. Could Hawaii become a free nation once more?

Nichols O’Keefe not only argues the possibility, he shows the peaceful, lawful process by which the Hawaiians (kanaka maoli) intend to free themselves of the American occupation; an occupation that has lasted well over 100 years, an occupation that has turned their island paradise nation into an American Empire military outpost, one that continues to be used as a staging ground for wars of aggression resulting in ever more death and destruction.

In 2008 the legislature of the reinstated Hawaiian Government (with Representative Ken O’Keefe of District 6, Oahu) passed a law that outlaws all weapons of mass destruction in Hawaii. In this bold move the Hawaiian Government has reached out to the world to see just how serious we are about ending imperialism and American domination of the world. Thus far the world continues to be oblivious to this cause and O’Keefe argues is missing one of the greatest opportunities of our time to affect disarmament and increase the chances for peace. *

Annexation was affected by joint resolution because the two/thirds majority that was needed to annex territory was not possible. In addition, the US Congress confessed in UNITED STATES PUBLIC LAW 103-150 that Hawaii was obtained by a conspiracy to overthrow the lawful government of Hawaii and furthermore that the Hawaiian people and nation have never relinquished title to their national lands. And to add to that, the anti-annexation petition that was circulated at the time of the proposed annexation of Hawaii to the United States had the signature of virtually every single Hawaiian living at that time.

Chris Rock, A Man Who Stands For Nothing

“A man who stands for nothing will fall for anything” MalcolmX

“In spite of all the information made available for Rock to reconsider the performance, he greeted his audience with “I’m loving this country. Israel, yeah!” News of his performance came days after comedian Jerry Seinfeld took his family to an “anti-terror” Israeli training camp, where tourists can be trained to kill what they call “terrorists“.”

Comedian Chris Rock performed in Tel Aviv, Israel, for the first time in his career despite multiple calls for him to cancel his show in support of the Palestinian people and in recognition of their plight under Israeli occupation.

Boycott Seinfeld: Comedian Visits Israel ‘Terror Fantasy Camp’  

Activists who support Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions, known as the BDS, a non-violent Palestinian-led movement to bring about accountability for Israel’s violations of Palestinian’s human rights and international law, called on Rock to cancel his performance in Israel comparing the Israeli occupation to the apartheid-regime in South Africa.

In an open letter written in November by pro-BDS activists, Rock was reminded that as a Black U.S. citizen he is aware of what systematic discrimination and segregation look like. The letter argued boycotts contributed to the end of apartheid in South Africa, and to the abolition of Jim Crow laws that sustained segregation in the southern states of the U.S. The parallels were echoed through social media.

However, the pleads were not answered.

Rock is known for criticizing police brutality and racism in the U.S. In fact, during his Tel Aviv show he joked about the issue saying: “You would think occasionally the cops would shoot a white kid, just to make it look good.”

This particular joke resonates as Palestinian children are not only shot, but also detained and impisioned by Israeli occupation forces. Israeli human rights organization B’Tselem estimates that over 300 Palestinian children are held in Israeli prison, where they sustain physical and verbal abuse that amounts to torture. In many cases they are held without being charged.

The letter also highlighted another victim of “Israel’s system of institutionalized racism”: Jewish Ethiopians and African Immigrants. The first have endured deliberate attempts to reduce their birth rates, while 40,000 African immigrants are currently facing deportation.

In spite of all the information made available for Rock to reconsider the performance, he greeted his audience with “I’m loving this country. Israel, yeah!”

News of his performance came days after comedian Jerry Seinfeld took his family to an “anti-terror” Israeli training camp, where tourists can be trained to kill what they call “terrorists”. Israeli government officials have celebrated what they call a terrible week for the BDS movement after the two comedians dismissed calls for boycott.
