McCollum Introduces Historic Anti-Zionist Legislation

No Nikki Haley here!

Power of the purse: Rep. Betty McCollum on using the appropriations process to check the Trump ...

Gulp…she really said this? And still has a job? The head still attached to the body? “Congress must stop ignoring the unjust and blatantly cruel mistreatment of Palestinian children and families living under Israeli military occupation.” Ah…no one gets away with calling ‘israel’ an occupation…we need to keep an eye on her. And if she doesn’t get called out by the Zionists, then we can assume they are losing power.

April 15, 2021

Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.), released the following statement today after introducing the Defending the Human Rights of Palestinian Children and Families Living Under Israeli Military Occupation Act, building upon legislation she introduced in the 115th and 116th Congresses to promote the human rights and safety of Palestinian children.

McCollum’s legislation prohibits Israel from using U.S. taxpayer dollars in the Occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem for: the military detention, abuse, or ill-treatment of Palestinian children in Israeli military detention; to support the seizure and destruction of Palestinian property and homes in violation of international humanitarian law; or, to extend any assistance or support for Israel’s unilateral annexation of Palestinian territory in violation of international humanitarian law.

“U.S. assistance intended for Israel’s security must never be used to violate the human rights of Palestinian children, demolish the homes of Palestinian families, or to permanently annex Palestinian lands,” McCollum said.

“Peace can only be achieved by respecting human rights, especially the rights of children, and this includes the U.S. taking responsibility for how taxpayer-funded aid is used by recipient countries, Israel included.

Congress must stop ignoring the unjust and blatantly cruel mistreatment of Palestinian children and families living under Israeli military occupation.”

“I strongly believe there is a growing consensus among the American people that the Palestinian people deserve justice, equality, human rights, and the right to self-determination.

The unprecedented endorsement of this bill by human rights organizations as well as Christian, Jewish, and Muslim organizations is indicative of an energized movement in support of human rights for Palestinians.

It is time for Americans, especially Members of Congress, to stand with Palestinians and Israelis who seek a future of peace and justice.”

Palestine is not a Quagmire

The metaphors that attempt to render Palestine complicated obscure the simple brutality of Zionist colonization.

It’s imperialism, stupid.

Palestine is not a minefield.  Palestine is not complicated.  Palestine is not a morass.  Palestine is not tricky.  Palestine is not a quagmire.  

Palestine is not almost impossible to navigate. 

Israel systematically abuses millions of Palestinians simply because they’re not what the state defines as Jewish.

 Israel came into existence through a massive program of ethnic cleansing that continues into the present.

 Israel prevents millions of Palestinians from returning to their ancestral cities and villages. 

Israel doesn’t allow those who remain the right of free movement.  Israel is central to an ongoing project of Western imperialism. 

Appraise Israel’s position in the world and you’ll always find it aligned with forces of plunder and accumulation.  

Israel is a fundamentally racist entity—an ethnosupremacist settler colony, if you prefer—ruthlessly devoted to conquest and domination. 

The notion of Palestine as doggedly complicated is a spectacular deceit. 

Palestine is a living nation with a discrete history. 

Its people struggle for a future liberated of the misery imposed for decades by an insatiable colonizer.  Palestinians need freedom. 

The conditions in which that freedom can exist are clear and tangible:  dismantling a system of juridical inequality enforced at the barrel of a gun and replacing it with a polity invested in the well-being of all citizens. 

That polity would honor the right of return for refugees and eliminate strictures on movement and participation based on religious and/or ethnic identity.  There’s nothing complicated about it. 

Describing Palestine as perplexing or troublesome offers no benefit to the discourse.

 It obfuscates a clear distinction between victim and aggressor.

  It imagines the audience as incapable of comprehending straightforward concepts of justice and restitution.  

It is an act of cruelty to people often maimed, imprisoned, and murdered in a vigorous struggle for freedom. 

More than anything, it manifests a kind of exegetic cowardice.  

To what end does a speaker describe Palestine as complicated, as a quagmire? 

To implicate Palestinians in their own suffering. 

Palestine serves as the canary in the coalmine. It’s a sign of what’s to come for Americans. Ignore at our peril.

And to absolve Israel of demonstrable barbarity.  The absolution needn’t happen explicitly. 

It needn’t be intentional.  But absolution is the effect of this cryptic diction. 

We see it whenever a star politician boasting socialist credentials suddenly transforms into a dissembling clod (or an outright dick) when the subject of Israel arises. 

The criticism comes, quickly followed, as always, by the rationalizations. 

“There’s no simple answer.” 

“That’s the best response we can hope for.” 

“To be fair, the issue is really difficult.” 

Being fair requires more than an affinity for cliché. 

Deeming condemnation of Israel—or, better yet, of Zionism—difficult or intimidating exonerates the politician of cowardice. 

Palestine’s freedom is a momentous moral issue that deserves nothing less than decisive support. 

We’re inclined to view the politician’s mousiness as pragmatic:  they have to worry about elections; they’re obliged to pander. 

This not only absolves the politician of cowardice, but of intellectual agency: they’re talking nonsense, but they can’t possibly believe it.

Their own rhetoric is unreliable.

If we insist on being fair to the politician, then it seems important to extend the same grace to other demographics. 

What about the politician’s constituents or the general audience?  Do they not deserve any of the honesty they’ve been promised? 

Must their finite energy be taken up haggling with their own heroes?  Begging for recognition from the luminaries who claim to represent them? 

Or what about the Palestinian people themselves?  Is it not unfair that they continue to suffer a military occupation lavishly funded by the dissembling politician? 

Is it not doubly unfair that the politician derived power by pretending to care about them, only to retreat into the usual business of forgetting? 

Let’s abandon this language of being fair to politicians.  When it comes to maintaining the dignity of Palestine’s national liberation movement, antagonism is the only viable sensibility. 

I don’t mean antagonism of an oratorical variety, but as a subject position—a relentless focus on prioritizing the downtrodden above the bourgeois ambitions of social climbers in the West. 

“You can’t get elected in the United States without sucking up to Israel!” screams the advocate of realism.

 It’s long past time for this bit of common wisdom to disappear. Aspiring politicians may oblige themselves to systemic norms, but we suffer no such obligation.  Even where true, though, it isn’t our problem.  I don’t give a single damn if my advocacy for the colonized disrupts somebody’s political aspirations.

 The goal is to liberate Palestine, not to seat more charlatans and chickenshits in Congress.  

On this note, let’s also drop the pretense, exceedingly popular among bluecheck radicals on social media, that these ersatz socialists—Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders, especially—have betrayed their leftist supporters (Sanders by campaigning vigorously for Joe Biden and ingratiating himself to party bosses, and Ocasio-Cortez by transforming from a socialist dynamo into a bumbling liberal Zionist). 

They betrayed nothing but the ahistorical delusions of a pundit class trying to cash in on fantasies of influence. 

Sanders never pretended he’d do anything but champion the party and Ocasio-Cortez began dissimulating about Palestine before even winning her first election. 

I know because I criticized both of them from the outset for their weak politics, which were fully visible for anyone who cared to see them, and got dragged all over the internet.

 It’s unpleasant to see self-identified radicals boost every new savior appended to the Democratic Party, only to pull a sanctimonious, self-congratulatory switcharoo after dissent has become legible (i.e., behave as liberal disciplinarians when it’s beneficial and then as principled critics when liberal discipline is out of favor). 

The tardiness, like the naivete preceding it, is calibrated to the accumulation of clout—politics not as virtue, but self-indulgence. 

The only thing anyone gets out of being correct from the outset is an undeserved reputation for crankiness. 

The savior always capitulates by design.  The savior is a creation of the very culture he purports to transcend.  

A sincere commitment to Palestinian liberation precludes upward mobility in the U.S. political system. 

Upward mobility always prevails.  Calling Palestine a quagmire facilitates the upward mobility.  Palestine is complicated only insofar as it inconveniences devotees of American exceptionalism.

  On its own, detached from the logic of electoralism, Palestine is a collective responsibility, coherent and unbounded.  We cannot make Palestine intelligible to people obliged by political convention to abandon it. 

Before they became political metaphors, “morass” and “quagmire” were strictly geographical terms, denoting swampland hostile to development and most forms of agriculture.  

The notion of Palestine as a quagmire provided an important dimension to early Zionism, which conceptualized the Holy Land as marshy and barren. 

“Drain the swamp” is now associated with Donald Trump, but for centuries it served as a colonial rallying cry, first in North America and then in Palestine. 

Transforming these promised lands into something productive would be a difficult task, an undertaking nothing less than divine, and couldn’t be left to unindustrious natives. 

The settlers on both continents built roads and cities—planted new flora and extracted resources from the ground—and in the process destroyed the natural environment. 

And now Palestine has again become a swampy trope in the colonialist lexicon. 

Palestine is not complicated, though.  The quagmire comes into existence precisely where the fantasy of American salvation begins. 

Foreign Occupiers must stop imprisoning Palestinians

Khalid Amayreh

Zionism is a virulent philosophy and venomous ideology that has transformed Jews into tormentors, persecutors and oppressors as well as occupiers, liars and land thieves.

For many years now, Israel has been dumping Palestinians behind bars, or sending them to agonize in open-ended detainment in desert detention camps, purely for political reasons.

In hundreds of cases, there are absolutely no legal grounds, nor even according to the Israeli military laws, for the incarceration of indisputably innocent Palestinians.

Israel often doesn’t even try to justify this flagrant, vindictive and oppressive policy.

It just contents itself with invoking the security mantra, utterly ignoring the most elementary considerations of equity and justice.

In countries around the world, let alone countries that consider themselves civilized and democratic, a person is arrested, charged and prosecuted.

If found innocent, he is released, if not he is sentenced to jail terms or receives other forms of punishment.

In the Occupied Palestinian territories, however, detaining Palestinians at will is the backbone of the occupier’s policy toward the occupied, the Palestinians.

Palestinians are arrested and kept away from their families for years without justifiable reasons.

An individual’s ideological preference is often a sufficient ground for administrative detention that may linger for many years.

The fact that the wronged individual has done absolutely nothing wrong, has violated no laws, and committed no crimes has very little weight in the calculations of the Israeli occupation authorities.

For the Israeli political-military establishment, security whims and vagaries justify anything, including inflicting gross injustice on innocent people.

This shows that the ultimate purpose behind this brazen injustice is to torment individuals and activists Israel views as non-conformist. In other words, the motivation is pure sadism on Israel’s part.

The injustice meted out to the victims of Israeli detention policy is especially conspicuous with the so-called administrative detainees.

These people are effectively abducted from their homes and families and dumped into crowded concentration camps in the Negev desert.

One detainee, Mustafa Shawar, from Hebron in the southern West Bank , told this writer that he was imprisoned for more than 8 years without knowing the reason.

“I appealed to the Israeli military Judge to let me know the reason or reasons behind my incarceration at the Ktza’aout detention camp.

But the judge would never let me know of these reasons.

“I asked the judge how I could not repeat the crime or felony I had presumably committed if I don’t know what it is.

The judge simply told me he wouldn’t allow me the privilege of knowing why I was in jail.”

Shawar is just one example of thousands of Palestinians who are made to languish in Israeli dungeons, solitary cells and concentration camps for years without knowing the reason for their detention.

Israel Edges Closer to Imprisoning East Jerusalem Children | News | teleSUR English

Ismael Awawdeh, 46, is a civil engineer from the small town of Dura near Hebron.

He, too, had been victimized by frequent detainments, each lasting for 6 months to two years.

All in all, Awawdeh has spent more than 70 months in administrative detention.

He is still languishing in jail without knowing the reason.

One of his relatives told this writer that “it seems that the only democratic state in the Middle East decided to keep him in jail for at least six months per year.”

Many of the detainees are actually prominent figures in their respective communities.

They are University professors, medical doctors and outstanding religious leaders and many of them are active in charitable works and helping the poor.

In general, one exaggerates little by saying that the detainees constitute the crème de le crème of the Palestinian society.

In many instances, Israel behaves and acts very much like a criminal gang rather than a real state where the rule of the law is upheld.

The Israeli treatment of elected Palestinian lawmakers perfectly fits this description.

Indeed, ever since the Palestinian general elections in 2006 which the Islamic liberation movement Hamas won to Israel’s and America’s chagrin (both states had okayed the organization of the elections), Israel has been ganging up on as many as 50 of these lawmakers, accusing them of supporting a terrorist organization.

Needless to say, Israel is probably the last entity under the sun which is qualified to accuse others of being terrorists.

Israel, after all is probably one of the ugliest embodiment of terrorism in the whole world.

Besides, resisting a Nazi-like foreign occupier is anything but terror. In fact, one would be fornicating with language if one called those who fight for their freedom terrorists.

In the final analysis, however, a person should never ever be imprisoned for years for his emotions, sentiments and opinions.

In Israel, rabbis and others routinely publish books and deliver lectures and give homilies stating that the lives of Muslims and Christians and all other non-Jews have no sanctity and that they can be murdered without the slightest compunctions.

And when arrests are made, the Jewish inciter in question is questioned for five minutes in a chummy-chat style before allowing him to return home with all his dignity intact.

It is a stigma of shame on the forehead of Judaism to inflict this pornographic injustice on non-Jews just because these unfortunate people happen to be weak, vulnerable and defenseless.

But Zionism is also a cancer upon the conscience of Judaism; it is a virulent philosophy and venomous ideology that has transformed Jews into tormentors, persecutors and oppressors as well as occupiers, liars and land thieves.

I have no doubt that the dehumanizing oppression meted out to the Palestinians and others by Israel will speed up the corrosion and dissolution of the Zionist entity.

I am sure that the wise among Jews realize this eventuality very well.

Faced with ICC Investigation, Apartheid Israel Asserts Moral Superiority Over The Victims of Its Terror

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL — Israel’s army chief of staff, General Aviv Kochavi, recently commented on the International Criminal Court (ICC) decision to investigate Israel for war crimes.

In his speech, General Kochavi said:

There is a moral abyss that exists between us and our enemies.

They do everything in order to target civilians; we do everything to prevent hurting their civilians.

They rejoice when our civilians are killed; we investigate when theirs are killed.”

Sounds like a pretty good opening statement for his defense once the trial at The Hague commences. The only problem is, none of what he said is true.

As these words are being written, Israel is in the process of figuring out the results of its fourth elections in two years.

These elections mark what could be the final step in a political strategy that would make Machiavelli proud.

This strategy is one that was planned and executed brilliantly by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and that brought about the total disintegration of his opposition.

All that is left of those who ran against him are tiny fragments.

The hungry politicians who lead these fragments cannot possibly compete with Netanyahu’s domestic political acumen.

Similarly, no Israeli politician is able to compete with Netanyahu’s gravitas in the international arena.

This is something that was clearly demonstrated by the recent visit to Tel-Aviv by the Danish prime minister, Mette Frederiksen, and the Austrian chancellor, Sebastian Kurz, to discuss cooperation among the three countries.

“A moral abyss”

The speech given by the Israeli army chief represents a righteous indignation that is typical of Israeli officials.

He says that “a moral abyss” exists between Israel and its enemies, and that is a very interesting choice of words.

One might think it is self-defeating for the Israeli military and political officials to bring up morality.

And yet, here is yet another general who made a career of killing civilians and maintaining a brutal military regime claiming moral superiority.

In truth, a moral abyss does exist between Israel and the Palestinian people.

A quick comparison shows the following: From its very founding, Israel had invested billions of dollars in developing and maintaining its military; Palestinians have never had as much as a tank, much less a military force.

For decades Palestinians have been searching for ways to make Palestine peaceful again.

Palestinians had suggested establishing a secular democracy with equal rights.

When that was rejected, they had agreed to end their resistance and recognized the State of Israel.

History repeats itself

Then the Palestinian Liberation Organization entered negotiations with Israel and accepted that all it would receive was a small Palestinian State on less than one-quarter of historic Palestine.

When this proved to be impossible, the Palestinians initiated a peaceful, dedicated, and morally just campaign of boycott, divestment, and sanction against the State of Israel.

The demands set out by this call are all remedial and are all rooted in international law.

During these same decades, Israel had been engaged in dispossession, land theft, and violence.

Palestinians are targeted by Israel regardless of their status or geographic location.

Be they citizens of Israel, residents of the West Bank or Gaza, internally displaced, or refugees in camps outside of Palestine, Palestinians are living without rights — pushed off of their lands, prevented from access to basic resources like water, roads, and health care — and are killed on a daily basis.

Israel will not even provide Palestinians with a Covid vaccine. So yes, General Kochavi is right about the moral chasm. However, he and his army have nothing to be proud of.

“Our enemies”

One constantly hears that Israel is surrounded by enemies and that therefore it has no choice but to maintain a strong military force and strike whenever and wherever it sees a threat.

This is not unlike criminals who steal and are then afraid of retribution from their victims or the authorities.

The criminals are constantly in need of more weapons, more recruits, and they must always hit first in order to strike fear into their potential enemies.

The State of Israel was established by acts that constitute crimes.

Killing, mass displacement of a civilian population, theft of property and money, and the creation of an apartheid regime.

Israel then built a military force that to this day continues to terrorize Palestinians and occasionally its neighboring countries, referring to them all as “enemies.”

One could argue, and indeed should argue, that Israel created enemies by its own criminal behavior.

Then Israel feels it has the right to protect itself from the very people it alienated through criminal acts.

They rejoice

Driving south from Jerusalem towards Gaza, one reaches an intersection just north of the first entry point into Gaza, called Erez.

Then you drive down a road that goes along the Gaza Strip just east. At one intersection there is a gas station and a dirt road that winds from behind the gas station and up a sandy hill.

At the top of the hill, there are a few trees — one can see the Mediterranean from there, and also Gaza City.

When Israel drops bombs on Gaza one can see the smoke and hear the explosions from that spot.

Someone dragged up a couch and a few chairs, turning this spot into a favorite for Israelis who enjoy the spectacle.

US judge dismisses lawsuit linking Palestine solidarity group to ‘terrorism’

‘The smearing of human rights advocates as terrorists is a troublingly common and dangerous tactic’

– Diala Shamas, lawyer

By Ali Harb
30 March 2021

A US judge has dismissed a lawsuit that aimed to link a Washington-based Palestinian rights advocacy group to “international terrorism”, in a decision that activists hailed as a victory for free speech.

In a ruling released on Monday, federal judge Richard Leon rejected a claim that the US Campaign for Palestinian Rights (USCPR) is liable for militant attacks against Israelis because of its support for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement and Gaza’s Great March of Return.

The lawsuit was led by the Israeli government-aligned Jewish National Fund and group of US citizens living in Israel.

They argued that the USPCR aided and abetted acts of “international terrorism” by supporting the Great March of Return and the BDS National Committee (BNC).

The plaintiffs sought a jury trial demanding compensation under the Anti-Terrorism Act (ATA), a US law that allows victims of terrorism to sue accomplices in militant attacks for damages.
‘Not convincing’

Sen John Kerry: “The Palestinians have done an extraordinary job of remaining committed to non-violence. And in fact when the intifada (in 2015) took place they delivered non-violence – in the West Bank.”
However, Kerry said this was “overlooked by the general population because it’s not a topic of discussion. Why? Because the majority of the cabinet, in the current Israeli government, has publicly declared they are not ever for a Palestinian state.”

Leon tossed the lawsuit, rebuffing the attempt to equate support for BDS with material support for Hamas, which is designated as a terrorist organisation by Washington.

He also said the plaintiffs failed to establish a direct link between the US-based group’s activities and actual attacks against Americans.

“While the plaintiffs make broad allegations that the US Campaign provided financial assistance to Hamas, they fail to plead factual allegations sufficient to support these claims.

The more specific factual allegations involving the BNC and other groups are simply too removed from a terrorist act or organization to state a claim under the ATA,” the judge wrote in his ruling.

Israeli Weapons Used in Genocide Against Rohingya Muslims

“Plaintiffs’ argument to the contrary are, to say the least, not convincing.”

USPCR executive director Ahmad Abuznaid lauded the ruling.

He said the lawsuit reflected Israeli efforts to collectively punish Palestinians for their activism, even those living abroad.

“This reinforces that not only is justice on our side, but also affirms our constitutional rights and ability to continue to fight for the freedom of the Palestinian people,” Abuznaid told MEE.

The Great March of Return started in 2018 as a peaceful protest campaign along the fence separating the Gaza Strip from Israel.

It demanded an end to the blockade on the Palestinian territory and emphasized the right of return for Palestinian refugees who were displaced from their homes in what is today Israel. Gaza is home to 1.9 million Palestinians who are mostly refugees.

Israeli forces killed more than 180 Palestinians, including medics and journalists, during the Great March, which lasted for months.

Protesters responded by lighting up balloons, kites and condoms and flying them into Israeli territories.

 

The JNF lawsuit described the Palestinian balloons as “arson terrorism” that caused emotional suffering and material damage for the US citizens suing the USPCR.

Judge Leon said that while he empathises with the plaintiffs’ “suffering”, he cannot conclude “that the law provides the relief” that they seek.

Diala Shamas, a staff attorney at the Center for Constitutional Rights, which helped represent the defendants, said she hopes the ruling would be a “turning point” against efforts by private actors to weaponise terrorism laws to silence critics.

“The smearing of human rights advocates as terrorists is a troublingly common and dangerous tactic. The JNF’s complaint perversely cites our clients’ human rights advocacy in an attempt to support their ultimately fruitless effort to hijack US courts,” Shamas said in a statement.


Anti-BDS efforts

Abuznaid said the lawsuit is part of a broader effort to silence Palestinian rights activism, including laws penalizing individuals and companies that boycott Israel.

“But we have constitutional rights in this country, rights that Israelis are obviously denying us in our ancestral homeland, but that they cannot deny us here in the US,” he told MEE.

‘The smearing of human rights advocates as terrorists is a troublingly common and dangerous tactic’

– Diala Shamas, lawyer

Dozens of US states have anti-BDS laws on the books. Federal courts have struck down such legislation in Kansas, Arizona and Texas for violating free speech rights.

Earlier this year, a court of appeals also ruled that an anti-BDS law in Arkansas is in violation of the First Amendment.

The ruling in favour of the USPCR comes weeks after a judge in California dismissed a defamation lawsuit brought by a former Israeli soldier against a Palestinian rights activist.

Abuznaid said he hopes these legal victories would convince US politicians to stop the crackdown on Palestinian rights activism in the United States.

“They cannot silence us. They cannot stop us. I want to keep fighting for a day where freedom and liberation truly includes the Palestinian people,” he said.

Palestinian Rockets: The Hidden Facts

Air attacks: Gazan rockets and Israeli airstrikes

Air attacks: Gazan rockets and Israeli airstrikes

Source: B’Tselem Statistics

The media frequently report that “thousands of rockets have been fired into Israel from Gaza.” This is correct.

Media reports, however, contain little additional information.

Here we will examine when the rockets began, how many Israelis they have killed, and the nature of the rockets.

Gazan rockets have killed a total of 30 Israelis (listed below).

During the same period, Israeli air strikes have killed more than 4,000* Gazans.

According to the Israeli military, the first rocket by Gazan resistance groups was fired on April 16, 2001.

This came after Israeli forces had shelled and invaded Gaza (photos here), killing 570+ Palestinians in the previous six months.

The Palestinian Prisoners Club

There are currently 4,500 of them, including 160 children, and 360 “administrative detainees” – that is, those held indefinitely without charge or trial.

middleeastmonitor.com

The release of leading Palestinian Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) activist Mahmoud Nawajaa last month was a welcome reminder that people power can work.

When Nawajaa was kidnapped by a gang of Israeli soldiers in the middle of the night at the end of July, the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions National Committee in Palestine rallied its global supporters.

The call went out and people around the world answered, calling for his release. He was released after a 19-day detention without charge or trial.

“The Israeli occupation and the settler-colonial apartheid regime arrested me to obstruct the BDS movement, distort its image and intimidate its activists,” Nawajaa expressed.

“Pressure works. Sustained global pressure works even better. I am deeply grateful to all those who pressured apartheid Israel to release me, your solidarity gave me strength and kept alive my hope to be reunified with my loving family and the wider BDS family.”

As happy an event as this was, Nawajaa is only one of thousands of Palestinian political prisoners held under the gravest conditions in Israeli dungeons.

Palestinian prisoners’ rights group Addameer says that there are currently 4,500 of them, including 160 children, and 360 “administrative detainees” – that is, those held indefinitely without charge or trial.

One of them was Daoud Talat Al-Khatib, who died on Wednesday at the age of only 45, of an apparent stroke.

The Palestinian Prisoners Club blamed Israel for the medical neglect of Al-Khatib. He had been only months away from the end of his 18-year sentence.

It was a stark reminder that Palestine’s political prisoners under occupation continue to suffer, year after year, month in, month out. The outside world forgets their names, but the Palestinian people themselves hold the prisoners of their liberation struggle in the highest regard.

This struggle takes all sorts of forms.

Remember the name Mohammed El-Halabi?

He has now been trapped in Israeli jails for the past four years, for the “crime” of charity work.

This is not prison... "Qalandia Israeli checkpoint near Ramallah city which Palestinians must ...

Read: 115 Court Appearances and Counting: Father of ‘Humanitarian Hero’, Mohammed El-Halabi Speaks Out

El-Halabi is the Gaza programme director of the Christian charity World Vision. According to his family, El-Halabi is being tortured into making a “confession” that he funded “terrorism” in Gaza.

His father, Khalil El-Halabi, is a veteran of UNRWA, the United Nation’s agency for Palestinian refugees. He told The Electronic Intifada that he had insisted on the inclusion of teaching both human rights and Holocaust studies at the agency’s schools.

“We raise our children to respect humanity regardless of race or religion,” he explained. “That respect is not granted to my son, who is in jail where he is being physically and psychologically tortured for something he hasn’t done. Is this the peace that Israel talks about?”

Palestinian journalist Amjad Ayman Yaghi reported from Gaza that: “Khalil is convinced that Israel is using his son to target humanitarian programs in Gaza.”

It will be far easier for Israel to curb international aid programmes to Gaza if they have a “confession” from El-Halabi (no matter how coerced), that he had been misappropriating a major international charity’s funds.

Israel’s charges against El-Halabi are transparently fabricated, and have not been tested in open court. He has been subjected to almost 150 court appearances – mostly secret – over the last four years and his lawyer has been subjected to unprecedented restrictions. He has been offered a plea-bargain, but has refused.

Amnesty International has condemned his internment, stating: “Secret trials are the most flagrant violation of the right to a public hearing. Holding these court proceedings behind closed doors would render any convictions obtained unsound.”

The charges against El-Halabi were not even fabricated with much effort. They are transparently concocted and fictitious.

He has been accused of diverting tens of millions of dollars in aid money to Hamas, the ruling Palestinian political party in the Gaza Strip, which also has an armed wing.

But there is one major hole in this story: according to World Vision, the amount he was accused of stealing was actually more than twice the entire budget of the charity’s programme in Gaza.

It would have been impossible for such an amount to “go missing”.

Both World Vision and the Australian government (which has funded the charity) have conducted thorough, forensic investigations and found the Israeli allegations to be baseless.

In 2017, the Australian Foreign Affairs Ministry cleared World Vision and El-Halabi. “Our own ongoing forensic audit has not uncovered any money subverted and to hear DFAT [the ministry] say their investigation hasn’t either is consistent and is very good news,” disclosed the head of World Vision Australia.

For El-Halabi to hold out this long against the pressure of his Israeli torturers is an act of resistance to Israel’s occupation regime, no less heroic than armed resistance.

Extending Israeli Sovereignty Promotes Regional Stability and Other Lies

History denied does not make it so.

 These refugees did originate from this area. It’s an act of historical antisemitism to deny it.

While you want to explore whether or not these people were residents of Palestine, At the same time, keep in mind – Who denies it and what is the benefit?

There are many historical documents that detail their history, but maybe you will believe your own eyes with pictures.

Viewing these pictures, it’s striking to me all of the history and culture that has been lost, and it’s such a shame because it was exotically beautiful.

The Zionist narrative:

In 1948, when five Arab militaries invaded the newly independent Jewish state, hundreds of thousands of Arabs found themselves displaced.

Rather than following standard protocol to resettle the refugees among neighboring populations who shared their culture, the U.N. created a class of multi-generation “Palestine refugees” to include the descendants of any non-Jews with ancestors living between 1947 and 1949 in the territory of Mandatory Palestine.

The U.N. then created a new bureaucratic agency—UNRWA—whose entire existence and budget was contingent upon ensuring that they remain refugees.

The 20-plus Arab states, who should have welcomed their Arab brethren, chose to weaponize them instead.***

People who’s ancestors never stepped foot on Palestine land. EVER. the Arab armies were no match for the Rothschild backed Jewish army.

The Jews had trained for years already and accumulated and smuggled weapons through the Jewish mob.

When they chased off the British, the British left an established government, convenient for these foreign Jews* and they left weapons behind as well.

An established government and an army. Then the Jewish refugees poured in from boats and lived in the Palestinian’s fully furnished homes after the Palestinians were massacred and pushed out into West Bank villages like Gaza.

Rabbi Israel Zolli coordinated the exodus of hundreds of thousands of British Empire “Jews” from Germany, Poland, and Hungary to Palestine.

One can be loyal to America, OR one can be loyal to Israel

Claims of being loyal to both are a grotesque self-deception.

Our government and media can be broken down into two categories.

Those that are loyal to America, and those that are loyal to Israel.

Claims of being loyal to both are a grotesque self-deception.

One will always be more loyal to one than the other.

And, that loyalty will be on display based on how this latest spy scandal is handled.

Gov Cuomo Announces New York Blacklist of BDS Supporters

The story broke Friday that the FBI was closing in on an Israeli spy in the Pentagon.

Initially described as a “Senior level” spy for Israel, and in a position to influence US policy on Iraq and Iran, the report indicated arrests (plural) and “rolling up” (indicating again a plurality of suspects) in the coming days.

By Saturday morning, an amazing transformation had occurred.

The spy had been relegated to a “mid-level” spy from a “foreign nation”, along with assurances that he was NOT in a position to influence the war policy.

Gone was any mention of potential accomplices.

Today, Israel has effective control of US policy in the Mideast, and similar goals. Much has already been written about Israel’s control of Congress. Israel is now edging towards control over the US Executive Branch, with both presidential candidates supported by billionaires whose #1 agenda is Israel. The Supreme Court will be one-third Jewish, and justices have community ties and families. As Israel demonstrated through its successful intimidation of Judge Goldstone, jurists are human and everyone has their price.

By Sunday morning, it was not even sure if the spy was really a spy, or just inadvertently handed classified documents to a “trusted foreign ally” (repeated emphasis on ‘trusted’, of course).

A strange and wonderous transformation to be sure.

Indeed one is reminded of the FBI’s rounding up of the largest foreign spy ring ever discovered in the US, run by Israel in the fall of 2001, a story that was given four-part coverage on Fox News, then vanished as if it never existed.

Likewise, a DEA report on Israeli spying on a large scale was ignored by the mainstream media as well, as was the fact that the “Dancing Israelis” arrested on 9-11 were later revealed to be Mossad agents.

Israel is the only country to bomb Americans:

A 2004 transcript of an Israeli military tape published in the Jerusalem Post supports the unanimous position of the survivors and many high-ranking US officers that Israeli forces knew the USS Liberty was an American ship, as they attempted to sink it.

Then there was Golan Cipel, who brought down a governor, then vanished from the TV sets.

Then there are the Israeli drivers of mysterious vans that test positive for explosive traces when tested by police, but negative when tested by the FBI.

These too seem of little interest to either the government or the media.

Now, imagine for a moment that it was Arab spies arrested on 9-11 while cheering the fall of the towers, or an Arab who blackmailed a state governor into resigning, or Arabs caught trying to enter nuclear facilities or driving explosives tainted trucks, or caught feeding fabricated documents into the decision chain that launched a war, or selling really bad paintings inside government offices.

How would the government react to that? How would the media react? They would react differently, right?

That difference betrays a bias, a bias towards the nation pouring spies into our country, a bias that favors that foreign nation TO THE DETRIMENT OF OUR OWN.

Which brings us back to the observation I made above. One can be loyal to America, or one can be loyal to Israel.

One cannot be loyal to both. And by their reactions to this latest spy scandal, you will know who inside the US government and the US media is loyal to Israel.

By which I mean, who are DISloyal to America.

Are Zionist Terrorists a Protected Species?

Will Zionists be able to run the beautiful Earth into eternal damnation, or will Gentiles be able to overcome the evil?

It’s as if, over the last few decades, the term Semite has been hi-jacked to exclusively reference people who observe the Jewish faith and even includes white European Jews,  most of whom are unlikely to be able to trace their ancestry back to any of the historically Semitic ethnic, cultural or racial groupings.

Flashback from 2018
In the middle of the last century there was such a thing as Zionist Terrorism but today, criticizing Zionism is considered anti-Semitic.

Given that Zionism is an ideology supported by many non-Semites, you do have to question why challenging this ideology is considered anti-Semitic at all?

According to Wikipedia, Zionismis both ‘an ideology and nationalist movement’ but it is never described as a religion or a peculiar trait of a specific racial group.

Of course that brings me neatly onto the question of how anti-Semitism has become a label that exclusively references people who observe the Jewish faith.

Technically, the term ‘Semite’ references a specific Semitic speaking, ethnic, cultural, racial group that lived throughout the ancient Near East, including the Levant, Mesopotamia, the Arabian Peninsula and the Horn of Africa from the third millennium BC.

In fact, according to Britannica, the term ‘Semites’ “came to include Arabs, Akkadians, Canaanites, Hebrews, some Ethiopians, and Aramaean tribes… Mesopotamia, the western coast of the Mediterranean, the Arabian Peninsula, and the Horn of Africa”

It’s as if, over the last few decades, the term Semite has been hi-jacked to exclusively reference people who observe the Jewish faith and even includes white European Jews,  most of whom are unlikely to be able to trace their ancestry back to any of the historically Semitic ethnic, cultural or racial groupings.

This then begs the questions that if most European Zionists are probably not even ethnically, culturally or racially Semitic, how has it become normalized to label any criticism of Zionism as anti-Semitic?

For that matter, as Zionism is effectively an ideology that supports white European colonial occupation of Palestinian Arab lands, why is criticizing white European Zionism considered anti-Semitic whilst the occupation and persecution of people who could actually trace their ethnicity, culture and racial grouping back to Semitic peoples not be considered anti-Semitic?

By the way, there’s also such a thing as Christian Zionism and Zionist Churches.

It turns out that some Christians believe that the return of the Jews to the Holy Land is prophecised in the bible and so some Christians see the Jewish return to Israel as a prerequisite for the second coming of Jesus.

So if Zionist ideology is not an exclusively Jewish doctrine then why is it anti-Semitic to criticize Zionism, or is criticizing Zionism both anti-Semitic and anti-Christian, at the same time, despite the fact that a good proportion of European Jews and Christians are unlikely to have any Semitic ancestry?

Isn’t it time we also recognized the fact that ‘Zionism’ is just white European colonialism and that the ‘State of Israel’ is effectively the last European colonial project, albeit born out of the desire of certain post-war European governments to come up with a solution to ‘the Jewish refugee problem’.

Of course Zionism meant something a little different back then.

British Pathé recently uploaded some historical footage to their youtube channel showing some documented incidents of Zionist terrorism leading up to the Nakba.

According to the British military at that time, the Zionists terrorist “threatened reign of terror” needed to be rooted out of Palestine.

According to Wiki, Zionist terrorism by Jewish paramilitary groups, like the Irgun, initially trained by the British Military during the 1st world war (which is why they often had possession of British weapons and uniforms), started back in the early 1920’s and even targeted British authorities and United Nations personnel, as well as Palestinian Arab fighters and civilians.

The aim of the Zionist terrorists was to gain control over land, immigration and, essentially, over Palestine. As well as attacks on personnel and civilians, they attacked domestic and commercial properties, government buildings and infrastructure.

1946. British military searches uncover hidden Zionist weapons stores containing British and German weapons.

Irgun militants started bombing Palestinian Arab civilian targets in 1938, while at the same time the British Mandatory authorities were working to disarm Palestinian Arabs and promising them that the British authorities would be imposing significant limits on Jewish immigration. No effort was made to disarm the Zionist militias.

The Haganah and Irgun Zionist militias only suspended terrorist activities against the British when Britain declared war against Nazi Germany in 1939.

However, other Zionist terrorist groups, like the Lehi, actually continued attacking the British throughout the 2nd world war.

At the same time the British were now training and equipping a new Zionist unit – the Palmach – to respond to any German offensive in the region.

The Irgun then resumed attacks on British soldiers and policemen immediately after the war was over. The Haganah and the Palmach militias would also actively join the Jewish Resistance Movement for a period of time.

Wiki lists a sequence of Zionist terrorist attackscommitted by the Irgun, Haganah and Lehi militias between June 1924 and September 1948…

  • June 30, 1924. Dutch Jew Jacob Israël de Haan was assassinated by Avraham Tehomi on the orders of Haganah leader Yitzhak Ben-Zvi for his anti-Zionist political activities and contacts with Arab leaders.
  • 1937–1939 During the later stages of the 1936-1939 Arab Revolt in Mandatory Palestine The Irgun conducted a campaign of violence against Palestinian Arab civilians resulting in the deaths of at least 250.
  • July 15, 1938. A bomb left in the vegetable market in Jerusalem by the Irgun injured 28.
  • July 25, 1938. The Irgun threw a bomb into the melon market in Haifa resulting in 49 deaths.
  • November 6, 1944. Lehi assassinated British minister Lord Moyne in Cairo, Kingdom of Egypt. The action was condemned by the Yishuv at the time, but the bodies of the assassins were brought home from Egypt in 1975 to a state funeral and burial on Mount Herzl.
  • 1944–1945. The killings of several suspected collaborators with the Haganah and the British mandate government during the Hunting Season.
  • Letter bombs sent to British officials, including foreign minister Ernst Bevin, by Lehi.
  • July 26, 1946. The bombing of British administrative headquarters at the King David Hotel, killing 91 people — 28 British, 41 Arab, 17 Jewish and 5 others. Around 45 people were injured. In the literature about the practice and history of terrorism, it has been called one of the most lethal terrorist attacks of the 20th century.
  • Railways and British military airfields were attacked several times.
    Workers clearing a train wreck on a railway line after explosives were detonated on a stationary freight train by Zionist terror groups
  • October 31, 1946. The bombing by the Irgun of the British Embassy in Rome. Nearly half the building was destroyed and 3 people were injured.
  • April 16, 1947. An Irgun bomb placed at the Colonial Office in London failed to detonate.
  • The woman arrested for planting the bomb, alias “Esther,” was identified as a Jewess claiming French nationality by the Scotland Yard unit investigating Jewish terrorist activities. The attack was linked to the 1946 Rome embassy bombing.
    1946. Bombing of Tel Aviv Area Security Office by Zionist groups in which several people died.
  • 14 June 1947. The Reuters office in Tel Aviv was raided by “Jewish terrorists.”
  • July 25, 1947. The Sergeants affair: When death sentences were passed on two Irgun members, the Irgun kidnapped Sgt. Clifford Martin and Sgt. Mervyn Paice and threatened to kill them in retaliation if the sentences were carried out. When the threat was ignored, the hostages were killed. Afterwards, their bodies were taken to an orange grove and left hanging by the neck from trees. An improvised explosive device was set. This went off when one of the bodies was cut down, seriously wounding a British officer.The bodies of Sgts Clifford Martin & Mervyn Paice, left hanging by their necks in an orange grove.
  • December 1947 – March 1948. Numerous attacks on Palestinian Arabs in the context of civil war after the vote of the United Nations Partition Plan for Palestine.
  • 1947 Letter bombs sent to the Truman White House by Lehi.
  • January 5–6, 1948. The Semiramis Hotel bombing, carried out by the Haganah (or, according to some sources, Irgun) resulted in the deaths of 24 to 26 people.
  • April 1948. The Deir Yassin massacre carried out by the Irgun and Lehi, killed between 107 and 120 Palestinian villagers, the estimate generally accepted by scholars.
  • September 17, 1948 Lehi assassination of the United Nations mediator Folke Bernadotte, whom Lehi accused of a pro-Arab stance during the cease-fire negotiations.

 

In February 1947, the British announced their withdrawal from Palestine, passing arbitration over to the United Nations and leaving a powder keg behind. However, unlike the Palestinians, who had effectively been disarmed by the British, the Zionist malitias were, by now, well trained and well equipped, thanks to the British military.

As the UN voted in favour of the partition of Palestine on 30 November 1947, they effectively lit the powder keg and war ensued.

Jewish militias immediately launched various terrorist attacks. Over the coming months we would see a spree of bombing attacks by Zionist terrorists. A car bomb killed 20 people in Damascus, a lorry bomb in Jaffa’s Town Hall targeted the headquarters of the paramilitary Najjada and killed 15 people, the Semiramis Hotel in Jerusalem was bombed killing 24 people, a barrel bomb was rolled into a large group of civilians waiting for a bus at the Jaffa Gate and killed about 16 people, Ramla market was bombed killing 7 people and a garage in Haifa was bombed killing a further 30 people.

Then, in April, the terrorists moved to control the territory and committed numerous atrocities. Arabs in Tiberias, Safed, Haifa, Jaffa, Beisan and Acre and also in neighbouring villages were forced to flee their homes and during the Battle for Jerusalem most Arab villages along the Tel Aviv / Jerusalem corridor were completely destroyed.

Whichever side of the fence you sit on over the question of partition or who you believe should control Palestine, what no one can deny is the fact Zionism is not a religion, it does not represent any specific ethnic or cultural group, it is not an exclusively Jewish ideology and for many Zionist, it advocates ongoing terrorism, occupation and subjugation of an indigenous Semitic population.

So, the question we must all ask ourselves today is, why has Zionist terrorism been brushed under the carpet and how has Zionism morphed into a protected ideology, of which any criticism is instantly denounced as anti-Semitism?

International Zionism and Satanism Are Indistinguishable

Appearing on Russia Today, Institute for Research on Middle Eastern Policy director Grant F. Smith said the Senate investigation focused around, “Looking into groups who brought $36 million dollars into the U.S. to plant stories in the U.S. media and promote Israeli foreign policy objectives in the United States,” adding that the documents from the investigation were extremely relevant “because they reveal a vast effort to divert U.S. attention from the Israeli Dimona nuclear weapons facility by saying it was merely a research center,” even as Israel now obsessively hypes the supposed threat of Iran’s nuclear facilities.

When the individuals responsible for the illegal program were outed, the activities of the group were merely transferred into the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), noted Grant, which continues today as the foremost Israeli lobbying entity.

There are essentially three Zionist powerhouses in the world: Israel, the United States, and Saudi Arabia. Those powerhouses want to rule much of the world with an iron fist.

They have been meddling in covert activities and diabolical espionage for more than sixty years, and the Jamal Khashoggi murder is a recent manifestation of clandestine enterprises through the decades.

One can historically argue that covert activities are engrained in the Zionist powerhouses. By 1979, the Ayatollah Khomeini understood that idea very clearly precisely because it was already creating chaos in Iran and elsewhere in the Middle East.

Khomeini then had to attack that idea. He fleshed out a principle which continues to be true to this very day. Khomeini posited then:

“There is no crime America will not commit in order to maintain its political, economic, cultural, and military domination of those parts of the world where it predominates.

It exploits the oppressed people of the world by means of the large-scale propaganda campaigns that are coordinated for it by international Zionism.

“By means of its hidden and treacherous agents, it sucks the blood of the defenseless people as if it alone, together with its satellites, had the right to live in this world. Iran has tried to sever all its relations with this Great Satan and it is for this reason that it now finds wars imposed upon it.”[1]

“International Zionism” is an apt description of what was going on then.

The United States and England had already overthrown a democratically elected president in Iran by the name of Mossadegh in 1953,[2] and both countries were expanding aggressively in the Middle East to keep a diabolical empire alive and well.

By 1954, the CIA again overthrew a democratically elected official by the name of Jacobo Arbenz in Guatemala.[3]

The documents for this unfortunate coup are readily available at the National Security Archive.[4]

If one peel the ideological onion, then the logic becomes pretty clear: the United States has been in the business of overthrowing countries in the Middle East and elsewhere for a century.[5]

So it is no surprise to see that Trump is treading on the same diabolical path.

Going back to the Ayatollah Khomeini, he made an attempt to solve the “international Zionism” problem by appealing to Muslim unity.

But that again was another problem because countries like Saudi Arabia were already prostrating before “international Zionism.” As E. Michael Jones puts it,

“At the very moment he invoked Islamic unity, Khomeini was forced to concede that Islam was breaking up into two warring factions.

The grand climactic battle of the anti-Communist crusade disguised this split for decades, but now, as intra-Islamic wars raged in Yemen and Iraq, Khomeini showed himself more of a prophet than a politician who could bring about Islamic unity.

Either way, the Great Satan was exacerbating division as a means of achieving geo-political goals.”[6]

Khomeini obviously lit up a prophetic fire which again is still relevant today.

“International Zionism” is still sucking the blood of virtually every nation on earth through covert activities, espionage, and deceptive means. And by metaphysically rejecting the moral and political order and embracing chaos and destruction, international Zionism has essentially become Satanism.

Yemeni civilians living on bread crumbs.

This principle was articulated by St. Athanasius, who posited that any metaphysical idea which ontologically denies Logos and its central place in the universe will end up being Satanic.

In a Satanic universe, what is true is actually a lie and what is a lie is by definition true.

In fact, opposition to Logos “was deemed to involve an active allegiance to Satan.”[7]

An “active allegiance to Satan” means that innocent people have to die in order to preserve a wicked ideology.

If you doubt this, then take a look at what happened in Iraq in 2003, where the warmongers sent a six-trillion dollar bill to the American people.

In short, an “active allegiance to Satan” is the political ideology of the United States, Saudi Arabia, and indeed Israel, specifically when it comes to dealing with important issues in the Middle East.

The Jamal Khashoggi debacle again makes this very clear. The recent war in Yemen is another example.

The sad thing is that there are people out there who preposterously think that the murder of Khashoggi was a set up by a “a rogue group connected to Turkey, NATO and others” in order to embarrass both Saudi Arabia and the United States!

So in the Zionist world, everyone wants to get a piece of the pie. The only people who cannot get even a decent meal are the poor souls in Yemen, people who are now living on bread crumbs.[10]
