  • Kerry is off the Israel bandwagon
    • Naw, Kerry is still a political wimp.
      They all are.
      One who wasnt a wimp would be saying the US must bring ALL its force options off the table--- to bear down on stopping this----permanently.
      And do it.
      Gutless, spineless, immoral, craven, cowards.....and thats understating it.

      Vic Alhadeff resigns after comments supporting Israel

      Chair of NSW Community Relations Commission regrets sending email in support of Israel's offensive in Gaza

      Australian Associated Press, Sunday 27 July 2014 01.48 EDT

      Vic Alhadeff's email sparked calls from Muslim and Arab groups that he be sacked.

      Vic Alhadeff ,the chair of the New South Wales Community Relations Commission (CRC), has resigned following controversial comments he made supporting Israel.

      An email sent by Alhadeff defending Israel's military offensive in Gaza, which has so far killed more than 1000 Palestinians, sparked calls from Muslim and Arab groups that he be sacked.

      The NSW premier, Mike Baird, resisted those calls, leaving Alhadeff to decide whether he should step down.

      "It is with considerable regret that I have decided to resign from my position as chair of the NSW Community Relations Commission," Alhadeff said in a statement on Sunday.

      "I have chosen to do so in the interests of the CRC and its important work in fostering social harmony within our society."

      The email, which was sent in Alhadeff's capacity as CEO of the NSW Jewish Board of Deputies, claimed Israel was operating with "care to avoid civilian casualties".

      "Israel has made it clear that it is not interested in further escalation, but will do whatever is needed to defend its citizens," Alhadeff said in the email.

      "All options are on the table."

      The email also included a "frequently asked questions" fact sheet from Israel's Ministry of Foreign Affairs about its offensive in Gaza.

      Alhadeff now concedes the email "issued under my name inadvertently caused offence to some".

      "This is greatly regretted," he said. "While this was unintended, and despite the backing of numerous community leaders who acknowledged my record of goodwill, the reaction from some has become a distraction to the work of the CRC and the role of the chair."

      Baird's decision to back Alhadeff angered community groups, who pledged to boycott future government events.

      That started with a Ramadan event hosted by Baird last week, which was shunned by groups including the Lebanese Muslim Association and the Australian Arabic Council''

      The rockets are a 'message' dummy....they say we are still here and not quiting.

    • The Arabs arent making any peeps about Gaza because they are more into their Sunni expansion --but having f'ed up and lost control of all the radicals they funded many of whom drifted to ISIS they now want the US to get rid of ISIS for them.

    • Dead and wounded horses and animals everywhere---no one to help them or put them out of their suffering ----

      "Friends --

      I need your help.
      Barack needs your help.
      And we need it TODAY because this is urgent:
      because Republicans are voting TODAY to advance their lawsuit against President Obama. It's their most brazen attempt to obstruct our agenda yet.
      Together -- Barack, You, and I -- we've already accomplished so much to expand health care, promote equal rights, and lift up the middle class. Now they're trying to bring that all crashing down. We still need 1,387 Democrats to step up and chip in today. If we don't hit this goal, Republicans win.
      I have to ask you one more time: Can you step up right now?''

      I copied it to and emailed it to Biden's WH office and told him to get the money from his Zionist masters. That we were through with the Dems......this Gaza murder and slaughter was the last straw.

      Funny, that is almost exactly what someone said to me the other day. ...''there is something bad wrong going on in this country but I dont know exactly where its coming from"...were his words or close to them.

      Israel is getting away with this because the American people and media are afraid to speak up. An all-out angry roar from this country could stop this in one day.

      We–me and everyone reading this–are to blame for this. [Call your elected officials and fill out the feedback forms of your local papers, the new nationals (NYT & WashPo), and NPR. 15 minutes out of your unbombed life.]

      As someone who has been doing all that regularly for 11 years I can say it is going to take * OVERWHELMING NUMBERS* to have the slightest effect on the politicians.
      And the public's protest must contain a OVERWHELMING THREAT to their political careers and their 'parties'.
      And to make them take your threat seriously there must be a overwhelming DEMONSTRATION of the public's power to enforce our threat.

      And that means you have to find like minded individuals with juice and means and various existing opposition groups and organize them into one large group.

      Also few politicians personally appear in front of the public where they can be questioned or challenged---even when up for re election---they are almost entirely removed now from the reach of the public, they are barricaded behind political ads, office staff and media soundbites. You would have to smoke them out with guerilla tactics and ambush them to corner them on Israel as was done recently to one politican and reported here.

      link to 7:34 P.M. UN human rights council in Geneva decides to form international commission of inquiry for alleged Israeli war crimes in Gaza. Twenty-nine nations voted in favor of the commissions' creation, one member-state voted against it, and 17 abstained. Netanyahu condemns the decision as 'a travesty that should be condemned by decent people everywhere.' To read the full article, click here (Barak Ravid)

  • US plays decisive role in Israel's attack on Gaza
    • According to the declassified FBI documents there were plenty of 'provocateurs in the Vietnam protest too....but they worked anyway.

    • Just to remind people how deep and TOTAL the corruption of the US Congress is-- I offer this example. Although ordinary citizens are not aware of all the 'specific back room 'betrayals like this one---they are conscious enough of its general effects to give congress and US government a lower approval rating than cockroaches and traffic jams.
      You cannot 'respectfully ask, you cannot 'appeal to trash like this, you must threaten and make them fear for their careers and everything else they have.
      On Gaza you must outshout their jingos and make them fear the public more than they fear the lose of Zionist blood money.

      Congress Quietly Deletes a Key Disclosure of Free Trips Lawmakers Take

      ''June 30, 2014
      It's going to be a little more difficult to ferret out which members of Congress are lavished with all-expenses-paid trips around the world after the House has quietly stripped away the requirement that such privately sponsored travel be included on lawmakers' annual financial-disclosure forms.

      The move, made behind closed doors and without a public announcement by the House Ethics Committee, reverses more than three decades of precedent. Gifts of free travel to lawmakers have appeared on the yearly financial form dating back its creation in the late 1970s, after the Watergate scandal. National Journal uncovered the deleted disclosure requirement when analyzing the most recent batch of yearly filings.

      "This is such an obvious effort to avoid accountability," said Melanie Sloan, executive director of the watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington. "There's no legitimate reason. There's no good reason for it."

      Free trips paid for by private groups must still be reported separately to the House's Office of the Clerk and disclosed there. But they will now be absent from the chief document that reporters, watchdogs, and members of the public have used for decades to scrutinize lawmakers' finances.

      "The more you can hide, the less accountable you can be," Sloan said of lawmakers. "It's clear these forms are useful for reporters and watchdogs, and obviously a little too useful."

      House Ethics Committee Chairman Michael Conaway, R-Texas, did not return a call for comment; ranking member Linda Sanchez, D-Calif., referred questions to committee staff. The committee declined to comment.

      The change occurs as free travel, which critics have criticized as thinly veiled junkets, has come back into vogue. Last year, members of Congress and their aides took more free trips than in any year since the influence-peddling scandal that sent lobbyist Jack Abramoff to prison. There were nearly 1,900 trips at a cost of more than $6 million last year, according to Legistorm, which compiles travel records.

      Now none of those trips must be included on the annual disclosures of lawmakers or their aides.

      The tabs for these international excursions can run into the tens of thousands of dollars. One trip to Australia earlier this year cost nearly $50,000. Lawmakers are often invited to bring along their husbands or wives, fly in business class, and stay in plush four-star hotels. In the wake of the Abramoff scandal, lobbyists were banned from organizing or paying for these travels. But some of the nonprofits underwriting them today have extremely close ties to lobbying groups, including sharing staff, money, and offices.

      The only indication that these trips no longer need to be disclosed on annual reports came in the instructions booklet issued to lawmakers in 2014. The guidelines for the new electronic filing system tell lawmakers and staff they "are no longer required to report privately sponsored travel" on the form.

      Perhaps because the ethics committee's edict was issued so quietly, disclosure remained uneven.

      For instance, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, who led a GOP delegation of lawmakers to Israel last summer paid for by the American Israel Education Foundation, which is closely tied to the pro-Israel lobby, did not include the trip on his annual form. House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, who led a similar trip for Democrats, did include it on his form. But some of the rank-and-file members who went on the trip with Hoyer did not.

      Craig Holman, a lobbyist for the consumer group Public Citizen who closely tracks the international travels of lawmakers and the actions of the Ethics Committee, said he was "completely unaware" of the change until contacted by National Journal.

      "There's seems to be no reason I could imagine why the Ethics Committee would minimize the amount of information that gets reported," Holman said''

    • 'Only way to do that is to open AIPAC and its funding of politicians to fresh air and investigative reporting.'...seafood

      To do that you would first have to take out the Isr controlled US media so the entire public can see AIPAC.
      There have been at least a hundred books on the Isr Lobby-USA scheme since 1948 and probably more than a hundred thousand internet articles on it since the world wide web was created.

      I want to know why protestors arent at the CNN-NBC-MSNBC headquarters, at the NYT and WP and at the AIPAC office in DC and on Capitol Hill with their protest and die-ins.

      Dont they want the publics attention focused on the real cause of the Gaza slaughters and the fifth column threat to America as well as Palestine?

      They should be the targets of the P/I protest....big, rowdy, loud, flag burning, all out, let it rip, tear gassing, baton beating of US citizens by our Israeli infected police, protest.

      Thats the kind of protest I 'd find worth joining.

      The Logan Act is still on the books---Enforce it.

      The Logan Act states, in part: “Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.”

      We could get rid of the US zionist and their politicans with the Logan Act--- but we would first have to have a 'actual American President' who would enforce it.

      ” I do think these breaks in the media are important and help the (non net) public see the truth or at the very least start them questioning US support of Israel.”

      I’ve been reading a lot of comments after NYT articles in the past several days. Some of the stories have been decent, and allowed the truth of Israeli brutality to seep through. But it’s not sinking in.>>>>>

      Donald, ..ask why after years and years--- and I've been on the NYT and other major news comment boards for years-----the comments 'suddenly' turn from a majority of 'critical' on Israel to what you are seeing now.
      This sudden '180 degree turn' in comments indicates the usual rat in the woodpile at the NYT Zionist flagship.
      You think they wouldnt minipulate the comments?....of course they would.
      The more heat on and outcry about Israel the more their press and media organs will try to censor, fire, shut down not just reporters and public figures , but any signs that a lot of the US public is against Israel.

      Good one, interesting.

    • I am not as optimistic as Phil.
      The main opportunity I see in this latest Gaza massacre by Israel is getting the public (s) while they are hot and bothered, changing their minds and whatever previous conceptions about Israel they had and converting them to anti Isr-USA-P/I.
      This Isr crime will fade from the news and be replaced with another horror but if you can get to people *right now on what Israel & US politicians are* in this massacre--it will stay with them.
      So while not as optimistic as Phil, I do think these breaks in the media are important and help the (non net) public see the truth or at the very least start them questioning US support of Israel.

    • Maybe you arent telling them in the right way.

      I visited with a group of 70 and 80 year olds saturday evening, three of whom in the gathering were ladies whose husbands served with Patton in WWII. This older group is still full of vim and vigor about the US and has a lot of time on their hands to follow politics and what interest them, have lived long enough to know a thing or two and arent shy about expressing their opinions to their politicians.
      When I left they understood what P/I-USA-Israel is all about and where it came from.

      Israel is a threat to America --at least the America this group/generation thought they knew and sacrificed for---once they learn the truth about this they are incensed.

      Maximus, 8 years ago, it was the US that had ordered up the war and kept it going for 34 days. Israel wanted to stop after 7 days but the US and the Gulfies would not let it. It was only after Israel got itself in deep shit that the US allowed it to walk away from the battlefield. The purpose of the war back then was simply to take out Hizbullah, and Israel and the US failed

      Why did the US want to take out Hizbollah?
      Because of Syria?
      Why would it want take out Syria?

      The situation here is obvious: John Kerry knows that if he tells truth and expresses his real thoughts and feelings, he will be targeted for destruction by the Israel lobby

      I had a long conversation with Jones's staffer on this. Told him Jones and others who are 'resistant' to Israel but not 'pro active' against it, even though they privately believe Israel and its lobbies are damaging to US, need to start their own cabal on the hill and find in their ranks retiring politicians --those not running for office again---to start before they leave office speaking out very loudly against the I Lobbies and Israel.
      Told him that the Isr propaganda of 'americans supporting Israel' is just gross AIPAC and mouthpieces propaganda and politicans fall for it---and that millions upon millions of Americans would cheer a stand against this foreign occupation of our government but they need leaders to get behind in congress---and there are none..
      He agreed that congressmen and senators dont do any research on americans opinions on Israel, are totally unaware of the anti israel comments by the majority of americans who follow this.
      Said the only they input politicians record is calls or letters to them and the Pro Israel orgs set up phone trees and call-in' blitzes' and there is no big well funded american group countering them.

      So besides the bribe money factor ---the other problem is politicians have no idea how many americans do oppose Israel and the US zionist corruption.

      Politicians depend on political consultants to advise them what issues to be for or against--and that is another problem because if you research the main consulting firms the dems and the repubs use you will find many of their principles are jewish, if you further check out those individuals you will find that a number of them have made pro israel statements themselves. I once posted my in depth research on this here but it was not shown. I dont know why, maybe because I did identify many of the consulting firms as heavily jewish and it was considered anti semitic.
      However 'political consulting firms' are another infiltration avenue --a natural one---for zionist to influence politicians. If theses consultants tell politicians that 90% of americans support Israel the politicians aren't going to institute their own investigation to see if that is true or not.

      So in many cases no matter what their private beliefs are they arent going to act on them if they think they would be going against BOTH "american sentiments" AND against AIPAC.

      This is like the chicken and egg delimma--leaders wont go against Israel unless the american people come out --and the american people cant get any real juice in congress unless some leaders come out.

      Angry Crowds Defy Ban on Pro-Palestinian Protests

      Paris Is Burning: Anti-Israel protesters fight running battles with French police as thousands defy ban on pro-Palestinian protests.

      By Reuters

      Published July 19, 2014.

      Paris — Pro-Palestinian protesters clashed with police in Paris on Saturday as they defied a ban on a planned rally against violence in the Gaza strip.

      A Reuters photographer said demonstrators in northern Paris launched projectiles at riot police, who responded by firing teargas canisters and stun grenades.

      Demonstrators also climbed on top of a building and burned an Israeli flag. At least one car was set on fire.

      A police spokesman said that 38 demonstrators had been arrested by early evening and that the clashes were dying down.

      However, dozens of police trucks were seen rolling into the narrow streets of the historically Jewish Marais neighborhood where French media said groups of protesters had assembled.

      President Francois Hollande earlier said he had asked his interior minister to ban protests that could turn violent after demonstrators marched on two synagogues in Paris last weekend and clashed with riot police.

      “That’s why I asked the interior minister, after an investigation, to ensure that such protests would not take place,” he told journalists during a visit to Chad.

      In defiance of the ban, large crowds gathered in northern Paris chanting “Israel, assassin” until they were dispersed by tear gas.

      Peaceful rallies were also held in more than a dozen other cities, from Lille in the north to Marseille in the south.

      “This ban on demonstrations, which was decided at the last minute, actually increases the risk of public disorder,” the Greens Party said in a statement. “It’s a first in Europe.”

      Glenn Greenwald: Why Did NBC Pull Veteran Reporter After He Witnessed Israeli Killing of Gaza Kids? | Democracy Now! - link to

      "GLENN GREENWALD: Interestingly, you know, from working in the last several years in media, I’ve gotten to know a lot of journalists. I’ve gotten to understand a lot more about how these large media outlets function. I’ve worked with some of them over the last year in the reporting I’ve done. And it really is remarkable, and not hyperbole, that there is nothing that makes major media figures and news executives more petrified than reporting on Israel. I mean, the way in which they become so frightened to do any sort of reporting that could make what they call Israel’s supporters inside the United States angry really can’t be overstated."

      "And that’s the reason why this ABC, quote-unquote, "error" resonated so greatly, is because one of the things that you almost never see in major American media reporting is anything that shows the suffering of the Palestinians, that shows the brutal savagery of the Israeli military inside of Gaza. It was almost like they showed it by accident there and then just misreported it as being Israeli suffering because that’s what they’re so accustomed to showing, even though Israeli suffering is so much less than the havoc that is wreaked on the Palestinians."

      "But the one thing I will say that I think is actually encouraging is this is one case where social media really does make a difference. You have now Gazans inside of the worst attack zones that are able to go onto Twitter, that are able to go onto Facebook, that are able to upload video imagery, that are able to be heard in their own voices. And you have lots of pushback on social media, as well, toward media outlets and their unbelievably just grotesque pro-Israel bias, in a way that I think has really kind of improved the coverage this time, so that we are now seeing more of the reality of Israeli militarism and aggression. And they’re not being able to get away with calling every victim a Hamas terrorist or a Hamas supporter or a human shield, because social media enables the stark reality of what the Israelis are doing to be seen. It’s just part of the overall trend where major media outlets are losing their monopoly on how we understand the world, but it is still the case that nothing puts fear into the heart of American journalists—and American politicians—like the word "Israel." It’s really remarkable to watch."

      "American media officials are incredibly subservient to American political officials. That’s been—you know, American media figures are. But when it comes to Israeli political officials, it’s virtually cringe-inducing to watch how accommodating and deferential and submissive they become. And it really is true that American media outlets play a very similar role when it comes to Israeli military operations as they played in the run-up to the Iraq War, which is that they give constant anonymity to any Israeli military or political official who request it, they launder those claims without the slightest bit of skepticism expressed, and there’s never or virtually never the other side presented, which is the views of the people living in those areas that are attacked by Israeli aggression, or the politicians or the military officials who are in Gaza or who are in the West Bank. It’s incredibly one-sided, it’s propagandistic, and it really is deliberate. I mean, it’s so overwhelming and extreme in terms of how one-sided they are. They barely pretend even to be even-handed in their coverage."

      "And, you know, you’ve seen—I mean, I think one of the most amazing things was, the producer, the longtime producer at CNN, Octavia Nasr, she was there for 20 years, a completely competent, well-liked employee, never had any kind of disciplinary problems. A Shia imam in Lebanon, who had links to Hezbollah, died. He was beloved by millions and millions of Shia around the world. She went on Twitter and very innocuously just expressed condolences, and she was instantly fired."

      "And this has happened over and over, where major media figures have been stigmatized or lost their jobs or had their careers destroyed for the slightest amount of deviation from pro-Israel orthodoxies. And those lessons have been really well learned, just in the same way that American members of Congress are petrified of uttering a peep of criticism of Israel, which is why you see pro-Israel resolutions unanimously passing in the U.S. Congress, even as public opinion is sharply divided around the world or even against the Israelis. I mean, the evidence is just so conclusive, so clear, about all kinds of pressure and intimidation that are put on American media and political figures, such that we have less of an ability in the United States to debate Israel policy than they even do in Israel."

  • Israel is in a pickle
    • @ Boomer

      "From the American perspective Israel looks something like Frankenstein’s monster, a morally dubious and arguably unnatural creation that was stitched together with the noblest of intentions but not much foresight, and that produced a painful litany of unintended consequences. In that analogy we are Victor Frankenstein, who can never unmake his wayward creature, control it or untether himself from it. If I remember the story correctly, they destroy each other in the end.”

      That quote is so right.

      o.k. my last word.
      If Israel cant stop the rocket fire they will keep on assaulting Gaza with that as their justification.
      The US has accepted their 'justifications' every time.
      That the US and others may be scrambling to cobble together some cease fire is the equivalent of sticking your finger in one hole of a dike.
      What Israel has gained so far as of last week is another senate vote for another US 600 million for their Iron dome.

      Israel will do this again and again and again. They have No Reasons not to.

      Sticks and stones will break their bones but' words' will never hurt them.

    • Differ all you want.
      You can look for signs of Israeli failure and embrassments and you can point out all their weakness and continue to do so till the bitter end. is 'not Israeli blood' running the streets of Gaza, it is Palestine blood.
      That is the reality.
      Has been the reality.
      Will continue to be the reality unless some power aids Hamas or Gaza or intervenes in behalf of Gaza/Palestine.

      I am not as interested in praising the resilience of Gazans in the face of all their dead or pointing out Israeli embrassments----as I am in stopping Israel from killing them.

      Israel will do this again and again until it is crushed.

    • Israel isnt in a pickle as long the zionist can control or influence the major governments.
      Israel is not afraid of "talk" or condemnation. The zionist response to that is always to do 'more and worse.'
      Every realist understands what is going to have be done about Zionism and Israel in the end.

      Psychopaths, and they are the leadership of the cult, would rather destroy themselves in the process of destroying others than save themselves by quitting.

      Deal with this reality.

      In my observation of millions of net comments most people do think its both Israel and the US. The US is blamed for supporting criminal Israel.
      And most people have drilled down to the core of US political system being corrupted and bought by Pro Israel money as the reason and do blame the US politicians.
      Chomsky is the only one I am familiar with that dishonestly promotes it as "strictly" the US's fault.
      Even Israel lover MJ has laid the political corruption at the feet of the I-lobby(s) and zio orgs .
      So it really is pretty simple---money=political corruption+ craven career self interest of politicians.
      Add a US media under the control of I-First influences who will shoot down and eviserate any official or politican who might try to tell a bit of truth to the public and there you have the 'whole story' as they say.

    • What is a mystery to me is why anyone ever expected anything different from her...dem voters knew what they getting when they voted for her.

      Regarding Israel:
      [O]ur alliance runs far deeper: it is a natural partnership resting on our mutual commitment to democracy and freedom and on our shared values. Both our countries have been sustained by our commitment to liberty, pluralism, and the rule of law. These values transcend time, and they are the basis of our unbreakable bond.

      Lasting peace, however, requires negotiations between the parties themselves, and although the United States can and should aid in this process, we cannot dictate the terms. Unilateral actions, such as the Palestinians’ membership efforts before the United Nations, are unhelpful, and I would support vetoing a membership application.

      Regarding Iran:
      ''Iran is a significant threat to the United States and our allies. Iran is pursuing nuclear weapons, it is an active state sponsor of terrorism, and its leaders have consistently challenged Israel’s right to exist. Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons is unacceptable because a nuclear Iran would be a threat to the United States, our allies, the region, and the world. The United States must take the necessary steps to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon. I support strong sanctions against Iran and believe that the United States must also continue to take a leadership role in pushing other countries to implement strong sanctions as well. Iran must not have an escape hatch.'

    • @ Bob_Salad

      First, Beth did good in appealing to Jews.

      But you make the narcissistic mistake of saying a possible rise in anti semitism or iow the welfare of the Jews is the most important reason for her appeal.

      That does not sit well with non Jews and others for the reason that the anti semitism 'cover/excuse' used by zionist and the forced catering to this fear by the world is exactly what has enabled zionism, Israel and the situtation the Jews are in today.

      I dont blame non zionist Jews for wanting to protect themselves from blowback on Israel but when you put it as just opposing Israeli crimes for your own sakes and not for the actual victims it turns people off.

      She is reflective of the Zionist 'Establishment' in the US....which is currently the only establishment within the Jews that has any real power and the national megaphone.

      So, that she was kicked off for showing her zionist a-holeness and not given a pass or being excused for it because she is jewish and 'entitled' by the holocaust ---by either the 0ther passengers or Jet Blue officials --- is significant.

      Gaza and Lobby Politics

      ''Everyone knows that the only way to permanently end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is by Israel getting out of the territories occupied after the '67 war in exchange for ironclad security arrangements guaranteed by the United States.
      The territories Israel would evacuate would become an independent Palestinian state.
      So why does the conflict continue? No, not because the Palestinians refuse to recognize Israel. They have,repeatedly.
      It continues because the one nation in the world which can make mediate such a deal, the United States, will not do so because it fears retribution from big donors mobilized by the lobby. That is why the Kerry mission failed. It is why every peace initiative going back to Oslo has failed. Every U.S. position has to be cleared by the donors. (I was working at AIPAC in 1982 when President Reagan himself telephoned its executive director to clear a proposal the United States was planning to issue.)
      Big donors will not permit the United States to even call for a settlement freeze, let alone for ending the occupation, making any negotiations ridiculous. Why should Palestinians negotiate over the final disposition of the West Bank when, even while the negotiations are going on, Israel continues to gobble up more land and expel Palestinians from homes on that land?>>>>

      I am going to give mj a 30 day break from my ridicule of his liberal zionism in exchange for this bit of truthiness.

      So someone explain to me why they arent doing that.
      Its a no brainer.


      That is liberal zionism.

      You Can't Kill Hamas, You Can Only Make It Stronger
      Experts and insiders say that Israel's military offensive will only further radicalize the Palestinian population -- and alienate frustrated friends in the United States.
      BY Mark Perry JULY 14, 2014


      Is Hamas isolated? Is it weakened? In fact, according to a number of U.S. military and intelligence analysts, the truth is just the opposite. Hamas is strong -- and Israel's current attack on it will likely make it stronger.

      This is also true for Gaza -- where, despite the Israeli onslaught, the Hamas leadership has remained untouched. Nor is Hamas desperate to negotiate a cease-fire with the Israelis. On July 9, a senior Arab diplomat in Amman, Jordan, passed on a report from one of his Egyptian colleagues: Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi had been in touch with the Hamas leadership, he said, offering to mediate the conflict.
      "Hamas turned him down," this diplomat reported. "They said, 'If Israel wants to come, let them come.'"

      Osama Hamdan, the head of Hamas's foreign relations bureau, whom I reached by telephone the same day, would not confirm the report. But when I asked him to give his assessment of the pressures his movement was under, he hesitated for only a moment.
      "We're fine," he said.
      * * *
      This isn't the first time that Israeli and American observers have predicted Hamas's demise. In fact, they have been doing so since 2006 -- only to be disappointed each time.
      When the Palestinians held legislative elections in January 2006, then Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was supremely confident of a Fatah victory. With the United States supplying Fatah with campaign expertise and funding, she believed, Hamas would lose the elections and be discredited. But Hamas won -- in a landslide.
      Israel then cut off Gaza from basic foodstuffs and commercial goods. As one Israeli official put it, the idea was to "put the Palestinians on a diet," creating an economic crisis so severe that Hamas would lose its popular standing. It didn't happen. So, in 2007, the United States decided to support the creation of a Fatah militia to crush Hamas in Gaza. Instead, Hamas preempted the operation -- in vicious but short-lived fighting, it was Fatah that was removed from Gaza, not Hamas.

      A series of Israeli military operations since then has similarly failed to destroy Hamas. Operation Cast Lead, launched in December 2008, resulted in 1,400 Palestinian deaths, as well as the deaths of three Israeli civilians and six IDF soldiers, over the three-week operation. Operation Pillar of Defense, in November 2012, aimed to "cripple terror organizations in the Gaza Strip and defend Israelis living under fire," according to the IDF. At the end of each operation, Israel extolled its military successes -- providing lists of Hamas leaders it had killed, plus weapons depots, rocket stores, launchpads, and suspected Hamas command posts it had destroyed. But at the end of each operation, Hamas remained in control of Gaza and capable of launching rockets at Israel.

      Some U.S. military officials have grown exasperated with the perpetual claims that Hamas is on the verge of being destroyed.
      "It's nearly impossible to quantify Hamas's capabilities or its ability to survive the current attacks," said a senior U.S. military officer who monitors the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. "But I would say that given its history, the 'Hamas is finished' scenario is an exaggeration.... The movement has shown that it's capable of taking a punch."

      Israel has not only failed to eliminate Hamas, but its approach to the Palestinians has antagonized its most important ally, the United States. Following the collapse of Secretary of State John Kerry's attempt to negotiate a resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, U.S. officials have shown signs of both conflict fatigue and frustration with the Israeli government.

      The most uncomfortable exchange between Kerry and Netanyahu, this diplomat said, took place in early February, after Kerry arrived in Jerusalem from a meeting with European officials at the Munich Security Conference. This diplomat said that Kerry had expected that the Munich meeting would focus on Eastern Europe and the Ukraine crisis. Instead, European officials harangued Kerry about his Israeli-Palestinian mediation efforts. If Israel didn't get serious about the peace process, Kerry was told, the European Union was willing to support efforts to delegitimize and boycott it. When Kerry responded that the United States would oppose such efforts, he was rebuffed: Europe, he was told, had run out of patience.

      According to this same senior diplomat, when the secretary of state arrived in Jerusalem on Feb. 2, he carried a harsh message for Netanyahu. In a private meeting, an impatient Kerry told Netanyahu that "Israel is in trouble in Europe" and that the Europeans had "stopped listening" to American advice. Netanyahu thought he was being lectured, and he responded angrily. "Israel will not be blackmailed into signing an agreement with the Palestinians" that would endanger its security, he said. "He actually wagged his finger at the secretary of state," the senior diplomat told me. "Can you imagine? He wagged his finger at him."

      Kerry was exasperated, but no more so than when the details of his meeting were leaked to the Israeli media. Within hours, Israeli Economy Minister Naftali Bennett accused Kerry of serving as a "mouthpiece" for anti-Semitic forces.
      Kerry's advisors were convinced that Netanyahu, who feared a collapse of his government, was responsible for the leak and had approved Bennett's statement. Confronting Kerry was a standard strategy for Netanyahu, as it appeased the Israeli right -- but being called an anti-Semite was a bridge too far.
      "A mouthpiece for anti-Semites? Just incredible. Really, there's only so much you can take," the U.S. diplomat told me at the time.

      But while navigating the shoals of Israeli politics was hazardous enough, Kerry also had to contend with the Palestinian leadership. Abbas and his aides, a senior Fatah official said, had deep disagreements over their negotiating strategy. Abbas was being too accommodating to Israel, a number of them argued -- which was strengthening Hamas in the West Bank and Gaza. The more Abbas negotiated, the weaker he looked.
      The deep tensions at the very top of the Ramallah leadership were most obvious during a meeting Kerry held with lead Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat and Abbas several months prior to his February meeting with Netanyahu. During the meeting, as Kerry looked on in discomfort, Abbas turned on the sometimes long-winded Erekat. "Just shut up," Abbas shouted at him. "Can't you shut up? All you do is talk. Just shut up."
      Abbas then turned to Kerry. "Don't listen to him," he said. "You're negotiating with me."
      By early March, Abbas was facing off against several of his more outspoken senior Fatah leaders, according to one well-placed Fatah official. In one session in Abbas's office in Ramallah this year, Abbas turned on one of his critics, accusing him of being pro-Hamas. "How can you defend these people?" he shouted. "They are the ones who have embraced Iran. How do you think that looks?"
      His critic wheeled on him, said the Fatah official. "That's right. And we're the ones who have embraced Israel. How do you think that looks?" Abbas's critic stormed from the room, shouting at the Palestinian president over his shoulder.

      According to the Fatah official, Abbas reassured Kerry that the reconciliation agreement was designed to "destroy Hamas" by bringing it into the political process and then defeating it in subsequent elections. "I hate Hamas," Abbas told Kerry, according to this Fatah official. "But don't worry -- I have a plan for them. You'll see."
      Netanyahu aides were quick to dismiss Abbas's strategy for Hamas. They "absolutely howled with laughter," the senior U.S. diplomat who spoke to me about the February Netanyahu-Kerry meeting said.
      "It was just incredible," this U.S. diplomat told me in March. "They gave [Kerry] the 'wolf in sheep's clothing' routine, saying that Abbas's strategy showed that there was no difference between him and the terrorists. They even claimed that Abbas's real strategy was to turn over the PA [Palestinian Authority] to Khaled Meshaal [the head of Hamas's political bureau]."

      Kerry, this diplomat went on to say, could hardly believe what he was hearing. If Israel was convinced that Abbas was a stalking horse for Hamas, why did they engage in the peace process to begin with? "This was just crazy," the senior U.S. diplomat said. "The secretary was stunned."

      "This idea that attacking Hamas can strengthen Palestinian moderates is just silly," this same intelligence officer told me. "The truth is that [Operation] Protective Edge has weakened Abbas and left a void in the West Bank. And guess who's going to step in? Israel doesn't seem to have an answer to the 'what next' question."

      The "what next question" is a worry for an increasing number of U.S. diplomats and intelligence officers. Successive Israeli attacks on Gaza over the last years have splintered Gaza's militant groups -- strengthening some, such as certain elements in the Popular Resistance Committees and Islamic Jihad, that are far more radical than Hamas. In 2007, again in 2009, and then just last May, the Hizb ut-Tahrir movement, which calls for the establishment of a caliphate to "liberate the Holy Land," held rallies in Hebron and Ramallah that attracted a small but dedicated band of followers.
      "In the American media, it's 'Hamas, Hamas, Hamas,'" Yousef Munayyer, the executive director of the Jerusalem Fund, said. "It's a great talking point, but this shouldn't be about talking points. Israel's actions are radicalizing Palestinian society. Maybe that's what they want, but I can't imagine that's what we want."
      While Israeli officials might lump Hamas in with ISIS, the group itself has been increasingly worried about the emergence of more radical Islamist movements. This could be clearly seen in the immediate aftermath of the June 12 kidnapping and murder of the three Israeli teens, which took Hamas's leadership by surprise. "They were caught flat-footed," the senior Fatah official with whom I spoke confirmed. "They didn't order the kidnapping or the murder and were surprised it happened. We ourselves thought it wasn't aimed at Israel, but at breaking up the unity agreement."
      Hamdan, the head of Hamas's foreign relations bureau, refused to comment on this speculation, but denied that Hamas was behind the incident. "To this moment we don't know" who the perpetrators are, he told me in the immediate aftermath of the kidnapping. He provided the same answer when I gave him the names of the prime suspects, members of the Qawasmeh family of Hebron. "We don't know," he repeated.
      With Operation Protective Edge entering its eighth day, the United States is now scrambling to again find a way out of the conflict. But unlike previous confrontations, getting both sides to agree on a cease-fire will be much more difficult. "Abbas is weakened; Israel has a government that needs to show how tough it is; and Hamas is looking at its competitors in Gaza," said Nathan J. Brown, a professor of political science and international affairs at George Washington University. "There aren't too many exit points. The current crisis could go on for quite some time and be very bloody."
      So far, Israel's eight-year attempt to batter Hamas into submission has not only met with failure, but its successive military onslaughts might just have succeeded in creating an increasingly radicalized Palestinian population and alienating Israel's most powerful ally.
      "Why would you adopt policies that actually create more Islamists?" asks a former U.S. intelligence analyst who spent his career monitoring the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. "And why would you offend a secretary of state and a country that's one of your last friends in the world? The unalterable and, for many, unutterable truth of this conflict is that Israel should stop looking out and start looking in. It's time for them to admit that their strategy of isolating Hamas, weakening Fatah, and offending America hasn't worked and won't work. Maybe it's time to try something else."

      “All reasonable demands by Hamas.”

      Not all of them, American.>>>>>>>>>>>

      You understand, do you not, that when your adversary demands their everything---you also demand your everything.
      This has been the Palestine mistake from the beginning.
      This is the position they should have taken and broadcast to the world from the beginning to drive home on the public the truth of the violent expelling of the Palestines and the subsequent seizure of the refugees property.
      From there they can compromise down to the 'establishment of Israel' back to the original 1948 parcel awarded by the UN.
      They have let Israel 'frame' the stolen land situtation as Isr 'giving their own rightfully settled land to Palestine for peace' from the beginning---big mistake.

    • All reasonable demands by Hamas.
      But any agreement with Israel is as worthless as the scorpion's promise not to sting the frog if he carries him across the river.

  • Palestinian member of Knesset removed from meeting for saying, 'Your hands are covered with blood'
    • ‘Your hands are covered with blood’

      Must be a trending thought.
      ' Your hands are dripping with zionist blood money' is exactly what I said in my WH comment call and to my senator's office.
      Will I be expelled from the United States of Israel now?

  • Netanyahu says there will never be a real Palestinian state
    • '' The only answer to Israelis who want a majority Jewish state and a majority which will be guaranteed for the foreseeble future, is to comply with International Law, get back behind the borders they agreed to in 1948, then they will be accepted by the whole of the Islamic community [57 states], and be a valued member of the community of nations. Failure to do this means never ending death and destruction, with the inevitable demise of the racist state.''...Harry Law

      I agree.

    • '' The ideology of Jewish nationalism won’t pass from the stage without deep grief and violence. Part of the struggle ahead therefore is to convince the adherents of the Jewish state in America, all the Jewish organizations and religious groups who believe that we need a Jewish state even though we are doing fine here, of the historical error in this belief. ''

      You can convince some individual Jews but the Jewish Orgs are another story, most of them were formed for the purpose of supporting a supremist Israel.
      Maybe some exposes of how they rip off Jews for their Zio, Inc Mafia business and personal zio big wig cushy salaries and profit would help. I know that Jews have a term for 'suckers'....they should be shown how they are being played for suckers.

  • Ceasefire. Tightening the Gordian Knot?
    • Last time there was a US-Egypt brokered cease fire and agreement Isr violated the agreement and started shooting up Gaza fishermen and their boats the very next day.
      A agreement with Israel, the US and Egypt is worth less than the paper it is written on for Gazans.

      No, its more a statement of fact. Consult history. Collective punishment---despite all the outcries about the wrongness of it---- has been the way of the world since time immemorial.
      Ask the Germans.

      From Occupation to “Occupy”: The Israelification of American Domestic Security
      by Max Blumenthal
      Published Friday, December 2, 2011

      New York - In October, the Alameda County Sheriff’s Department turned parts of the campus of the University of California in Berkeley into an urban battlefield. The occasion was Urban Shield 2011, an annual SWAT team exposition organized to promote “mutual response,” collaboration and competition between heavily militarized police strike forces representing law enforcement departments across the United States and foreign nations.

      At the time, the Alameda County Sheriff’s Department was preparing for an imminent confrontation with the nascent “Occupy” movement that had set up camp in downtown Oakland, and would demonstrate the brunt of its repressive capacity against the demonstrators a month later when it attacked the encampment with teargas and rubber bullet rounds, leaving an Iraq war veteran in critical condition and dozens injured. According to Police Magazine, a law enforcement trade publication, “Law enforcement agencies responding to…Occupy protesters in northern California credit Urban Shield for their effective teamwork.”

      Training alongside the American police departments at Urban Shield was the Yamam, an Israeli Border Police unit that claims to specialize in “counter-terror” operations but is better known for its extra-judicial assassinations of Palestinian militant leaders and long record of repression and abuses in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip. Urban Shield also featured a unit from the military of Bahrain, which had just crushed a largely non-violent democratic uprising by opening fire on protest camps and arresting wounded demonstrators when they attempted to enter hospitals. While the involvement of Bahraini soldiers in the drills was a novel phenomenon, the presence of quasi-military Israeli police – whose participation in Urban Shield was not reported anywhere in US media – reflected a disturbing but all-too-common feature of the post-9/11 American security landscape.

      Six die in LAPD missile attack; suspect escapes
      An LAPD helicopter fired two missiles yesterday into a crowded intersection in South Central LA today, killing 6 and injured 23 in an attack on the vehicle of a suspected drug smuggler.
      The target of the assassination attempt, Carlos Diaz, escaped with minor injuries, jumping from the Hummer moments before the first missile hit. A second missile followed within seconds, instantly killing Diaz's bodyguard and driver, and a mother and child in the car.
      Included among the casualties were an elderly Israeli couple, prompting Prime Minister Sharon to advise the LAPD that he was "troubled" by the attack, and questioning whether such actions really served to increase LA's security.

      Andrew Blankstein reports at the Times:

      Over the weekend, the LAPD opened its emergency operations center in the wake of Hamas rocket attacks against Israel and the Jewish state's bombing and invasion of the Gaza Strip. The center will be staffed indefinitely on a round-the-clock basis, said LAPD Assistant Chief Earl Paysinger.
      The center "acts as a clearinghouse," says Paysinger, collecting information about the latest news related to the conflict and the reactions in Los Angeles, including "spontaneous protests" such as the one that took place Friday outside the Israeli Consulate on Wilshire Boulevard.

      The "Level 1" activation means the department will be in a state of readiness, passing information between command staff, the area stations, city officials and other law enforcement agencies. But the increased footing means police will have an increased focus on critical sites throughout the area, as well as the possibility of clashes resulting from demonstrations.
      Mayor Villaraigosa made a point of speaking in favor of Israel this afternoon at a press conference.

      U.S. bill would offer $5M reward for capture of Fraenkel’s murderers
      July 11, 2014 6:43am

      WASHINGTON (JTA) – Legislation introduced in Congress would post a $5 million reward for information leading to the capture of Naftali Fraenkel, the Israeli-American teen abducted with two others and murdered last month in the West Bank.
      Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-Co.) authored the legislation concerning Fraenkel, who was abducted on June 12 along with Israelis Eyal Yifrach and Gilad Shaar. Their bodies were found June 30.
      Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) co-sponsored the legislation in the House.
      Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said that Hamas is behind the kidnappings and killings, which were an element leading to the bombing campaign Israel launched this week against Hamas in the Gaza Strip.
      “The Israeli government’s recent action against Hamas is a just and appropriate mission to both bring the terrorists responsible to justice, and to degrade their capability to launch further attacks,” Cruz said. “No one doubts Israel’s ability to carry out this mission, but given Naftali’s citizenship, I believe the United States should demonstrate our clear support for Israel by offering a reward as we traditionally have in terrorist attacks involving Americans.”
      The bill would require Secretary of State John Kerry to use the Rewards for Justice program to offer a $5 million dollar reward.''

    • @ tokyobk

      Let me give you a tip also about theses two statements:

      "''Measuring the antisemitism line is important and it was specifically bright up here.''
      '' The statement was not a slip it is the real feelings of some of the people in this conversation though you are right s/he has not learned the code yet.'

      First, while you are measuring anti semitism a lot of gentiles are measuring the ingraditude and slurs and blame heaped on our country (and us) by many Jews.

      Such as this one..and we see this type of thing constantly....

      '' MJ (Mike) Rosenberg@MJayRosenberg · 51m If u ever wondered how US could turn away Jewish children in 1930's,condemning them 2 death,look at how we are treating #ImmigrantChildren''

      Second, there should be no "code", I dont talk in code and there is no reason for people to have to except that they have been slurred and propagandized into thinking they have to use 'code' or be accused of Jew hatred if they criticize anything Jewish connected.

    • tokyobk says:...

      '' Also, they the Jews do this so what can “we” do about it is a problem. Its the Citizen formula: 98% innocent but slightly stupid and uniformed “goyim” (but real 4th of July burger eating Americans) and 2% wily city slicker cosmopolite dual loyalists with a carpetbag full of cash on the ready. That formula sparks the neuron films inside the head of more than just one sad old man nostalgia for the days when the covenant ......''

      I think you are hyping the 'what do we do about it ' question up more than it needs to be hyped up. And framing it as gentile americans vr jews ---which in a way it is of course---- but not in the old- timey scary 'goys against the joooos ' way you make it sound like.
      But as for the actual question of what to do about it among those of us who arent jewish and or zionist and see 'jewish politics on israel' as bad for the country all we can do is what I advised.
      What actually should happen is Jews for Israel, lite or uber variety, should listen to what gentiles are saying and trying to tell them about 'why' they oppose the US-Isr scheme . And from that Jews should be able to understand the opposition. And that, even though it is fact opposing Jews and Jewish groups----- has nothing to do with actual anti semitism---it is 'politically' motivated. It about having any ethnic segment of the US population--particularly one attached to a foreign country --calling the
      shots for the 'entire nation' on our policy toward said foreign country.

      The Jews that dont accept this as a legitimate complaint and concern by non jewish citizens are the ones that have been lulled into believing that
      they are owed this special right or entitlement to have their 'homeland supported or catered to 'by all countries and all its citizens' due to their historical victimhood.
      They need to hear the non Jews reasons for opposing this.
      But not many are willing to do that which imo is their mistake.

      But too many are hung up on the taboo of the jewish problem.
      Well, jewish politics on Israel are a problem in the US.
      I reject the claim that that Jews cant be criticized 'as Jews' when their politics on some issue 'is based on ' their Jewish identity and for their own Jewish interest.
      On issues other than Israel whatever Jewishness in their own minds they might inject or promote in issues isnt usually material in the issue, but it is on Israel.
      Oppose what you oppose within it by saying or doing whatever you would say or do if it was any other group.
      Thats all you can do.

      Will not work imo. Every little 'condition imposed on Israel only makes it act out more. And Europe never holds their feet to the fire. They impose a tiny restriction like no access to banking services for settlement enterprises ---and then they give Israel some plum with the other hand.
      The Palestines will likely be half genocided and half transferred if there is not some forceful outside intervention in the immediate future.
      Maybe the world will be upset enough after the fact to drag Israel and the US to international war crimes court.

      Zionism could have been something. Jewish connections and Palestinian access to the Arab markets. Buber had good ideas.

      I dont think so.
      Consider what zionism was 'based on from the outset:
      1) Seperation from All Others
      3) Securing a land for Jewish rule knowing that whatever land they secured would contain Non Jews.
      That this would turn into a hostile mixture of religious and ethic nationalism was a given.
      And the 'seperation' isnt a seperation from others at all. Zionist Israel is dependent on intercourse and relations with the others world for its existence as anything more than a poor or undeveloped commune type of settlement.

      The demand to be seperate----yet coupled with the demand for support from the others---mixed with hostility toward others......and establishing a nation based on this........a FUBAR in the making if there ever was one.

    • Factoid on German Americans

      link to


      More than half of the nation’s 3,143 counties contain a plurality of people who describe themselves as German-American, according to a Bloomberg compilation of data from the Census Bureau’s 2010 American Community Survey. The number of German-Americans rose by 6 million during the last decade to 49.8 million, almost as much as the nation’s 50.5 million Hispanics. (Click here to explore an interactive county-by-county map of U.S. ethnic groups.)

      “A lot of people aren’t aware that German is the largest ancestral group in the country,” said Don Heinrich Tolzmann, a Cincinnati author who wrote “The German-American Experience.” “It’s an eye-opener, and it’s something that’s commonly overlooked.”

      While Hispanics and Asians make up the fastest-growing segments of the U.S. population, the increase in those identifying themselves as German-American underscores the nation’s European immigrant roots. It also reflects the use of new ancestry-tracking tools, a longing for identity and a surge in ethnic pride after the Berlin Wall fell in 1989, more than four decades after Nazi Germany’s defeat.

      Germans have been immigrating in significant numbers to the U.S. since the 1680s, when they settled in New York andPennsylvania. The bulk of German immigrants arrived in the mid-19th century; they’ve been the nation’s predominant ethnic group since at least the 1980 census.
      The 49.8 million German-Americans are more than triple the 14.7 million Asians counted in the 2010 census. Bloomberg’s county-by-county analysis broke down the Hispanic and Asian populations into subgroups by national origin, with Mexican-Americans and Chinese-Americans making up the largest share of their respective groups.

      Americans of German descent top the list of U.S. ethnic groups, followed by Irish, 35.8 million; Mexican, 31.8 million; English, 27.4 million; and Italian, 17.6 million, the census shows.

      Gaza conflict
      July 10, 2014 12:08pm
      WASHINGTON (JTA) – A resolution in support of Israel’s right to defend itself against rocket fire from Gaza was introduced into the U.S. House of Representatives.
      The resolution, which has more than 50 bipartisan sponsors, was introduced Wednesday by Reps. Steve Israel (D-N.Y.) and Tom Cole (R-Okla.) in response to the attacks on Israel following the murder last month of three Israeli teenagers.
      It supports Israel’s right to defend itself against what the resolution calls unprovoked rocket attacks from the terrorist group Hamas and condemns the attacks. The resolution also calls on Hamas, which governs the Gaza Strip, to immediately stop firing rockets on Israel.
      “Despite Israel’s repeated efforts to pursue peace, Hamas has continued its policy of terror and violence against the Israeli people,” the lawmaker Israel said.
      “Israel is one of America’s most important and loyal friends,” Cole added. “As the world has watched the unrest and tension reach a new height over the last several days with rockets fired into Israel by Hamas, we remain supportive of Israel’s right to combat these terrorist acts.”

      What are you doing to protect Israel

      Talking Points
      Hamas is relentlessly firing rockets at Israel.
      Since the beginning of July, Palestinian terrorists have fired over 500 missiles and projectiles at Israel, including Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. Through constant missile barrages, terrorist infiltrations and cyber-attacks, Hamas and other Palestinian terrorist factions have waged physical and psychological warfare against Israel’s civilian population.
      Israel is exercising its legitimate right of self-defense.
      Israel has exercised its right to protect itself by undertaking military action that is has dubbed Operation Protective Edge. Israel made several efforts to defuse the situation, but Hamas rebuffed every Israeli feeler.
      America must stand with Israel.
      It is critical for the United States to reiterate its support for its ally Israel, including its right to live in peace and to defend itself. “No country can accept rocket fire aimed at civilians, and we support Israel’s right to defend itself against these vicious attacks,” said White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest.

      AIPAC empowers pro-Israel activists across all ages, religions and races to be politically engaged and build relationships with members of Congress from both sides of the aisle to promote the U.S.-Israel relationship.

      Support Israel's Right to Self-Defense
      A bipartisan group of 88 senators signed a letter to President Obama that expresses dismay over Palestinian moves to form a unity government backed by the terrorist group Hamas.
      The letter, which was spearheaded by Sens. Ben Cardin (D-MD) and Susan Collins (R-ME), states that such a government represents a serious blow to peace efforts. Indeed, Hamas continues its refusal to accept international demands to recognize Israel, renounce terror, and accept previous agreements.
      U.S. law is clear: No aid can be provided to any Palestinian government that results from an agreement with Hamas and over which Hamas exercises undue influence, unless that government has met the international conditions
      Strengthen Iran Sanctions Policy
      Royce-Engel Letter Urging Greater Consultation on Iran
      House leaders are circulating a letter to President Obama that calls for greater consultation between the administration and Congress on a potential sanctions relief package that may be part of a final deal with Iran.

      The bipartisan letter, spearheaded by House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce (R-CA) and Ranking Member Eliot Engel (D-NY), comes as the July 20 negotiating deadline rapidly approaches for reaching a final agreement with the Islamist regime.

      The letter notes that when asked in a recent congressional hearing if the administration would come to Congress to secure legislative relief of sanctions in a final agreement with Iran, Secretary of State John Kerry responded: “(w)ell, of course. We would be obligated to under the law.”
      Strengthen U.S.-Israel Strategic Cooperation
      By a resounding vote of 410-1, the House on March 5 passed the United States-Israel Strategic Partnership Act of 2014 (H.R. 938), which dramatically strengthens the strategic partnership between the United States and Israel as they work to confront new threats and challenges in the Middle East. The Senate version of the bill (S. 462) remains pending.

      The legislation — authored by Reps. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) and Ted Deutch (D-FL) in the House and by Sens. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and Roy Blunt (R-MO) in the Senate — designates Israel a “major strategic partner” of the United States. It also expands U.S.-Israel cooperation in a variety of arenas, including defense, intelligence, homeland security, energy, science and trade
      Support Security Assistance for Israel

      Key Points
      Fulfilling a 10-Year Agreement
      In 2007, the United States and Israel signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Israel that pledged $30 billion in U.S. security assistance to Israel over a 10-year period, beginning in 2009. President Obama’s request of $3.1 billion for Israel in fiscal year 2014 fulfilled the sixth year of that pledge.
      Ensuring Israel’s Qualitative Military Edge
      The 10-year agreement embodies America’s commitment to maintain Israel’s qualitative military edge over its adversaries on the battlefield.
      Confronting Growing Threats
      Though America clearly faces a tough budgetary environment, American security assistance is vital in helping Israel meet the growing challenges of a region in turmoil, a potential nuclear Iran, Hamas rocket attacks from Gaza, and a resurgent Hezbollah in Lebanon armed with more than 100,000 rockets and missiles.

      Sanction Hezbollah

      The Hezbollah International Financing Prevention Act of 2014 (H.R. 4411 and S.2329) aims to cut off the terrorist group Hezbollah from the international financial system. Authored in the House by Reps. Mark Meadows (R-NC), Brad Schneider (D-IL), Ed Royce (R-CA) and Eliot Engel (D-NY), and in the Senate by Sens. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) and Marco Rubio (R-FL), the legislation would force international financial institutions to choose between doing business with Hezbollah or the United States. The House Foreign Affairs Committee approved the legislation by voice vote on June 26

      '' Israeli lawmaker’s call for genocide of Palestinians''

      Submitted by Ali Abunimah on Mon, 07/07/2014 - 16:12

      ''A day before Palestinian teenager Muhammad Abu Khudair was kidnapped and burned alive allegedly by six Israeli Jewish youths, Israeli lawmaker Ayelet Shaked published on Facebook a call for genocide of the Palestinians.

      It is a call for genocide because it declares that----- “the entire Palestinian people is the enemy” and justifies its destruction,----- “including its elderly and its women,---- its cities and its villages,----- its property and its infrastructure.”

      It is a call for genocide because it calls for the slaughter of Palestinian mothers who give birth to “little snakes.”
      If Shaked’s post does not meet the legal definition of a call for genocide then nothing does.
      Shaked is a senior figure in the Habeyit Hayehudi (Jewish Home) party that is part of Israel’s ruling coalition.
      Her post was shared more than one thousand times and received almost five thousand “Likes.”
      Uri Elitzur, to whom she refers, and who died a few months ago, was leader of the settler movement and speechwriter and close advisor to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
      Here’s a full translation of Shaked’s posting:
