  • Many Afghan demos in '09 were about... Israel
    • Wikileaks have blamed both Pakistan intelligence agency (ISI) and Tehran for supporting Taliban and thus the US military failure in Afghanistan. Interestingly, Taliban were created and supported by the US-Pakistan-Saudi Arabia trio to defeat USSR in Afghanistan. British ‘Guardian’ reported on November 13, 2009 that US is still paying millions of dollars to Taliban to ensure the safety of it supply convoys to NATO forces in Afghanistan. Taliban (Wahabis) were also used against the Islamic Republic (Shia). Tehran gave political assylum to Afghan leaders sought by Taliban to be executed – former President of Afghanistan Burhanddin Rabbani and Prime Minister Gulbedin Hikmatyar.

      Rabbani left Iran in December 2001 and took residence in the Royal Palace in Kabul controlled by US allies, the Northern Alliance. Hikmatyar left in 2002 when Washington threatened to bomb Iran for harboring Taliban leaders. Hikmatyar is now an ally of Mullah Omar.

      In reality – Wikileaks is another attempt by the CIA/Mossad to hide the truth behind the Afghanistan war – just like the 9/11 Commission
      which was set-up to provide cover to the real culprits behind the tragedy.

  • During the time of the siege
    • Dr. Izzeldine Abuelaish, a Gaza-born doctor cured thousands of Arab-hating Israeli Jew patients at Chaim Sheba Medical Center in Tel Aviv, known as the Pink City. His caring for the Israelis was paid by Israeli shelling of his home in Jabaliya – killing his three young daughters and a niece during 23-day invasion of Gaza Strip.

      Dr. Izzeldine Abuelaish, who now lives in Toronto (Canada) accompanied by the remaining members of his family – has just published his first book, titled I shall Not Hate: A Gaza Doctor\’s Journey.

      Even his family tragedy has not turned him to hate Jews. He is involved in inter-faith dialogue between Muslims and Jews and is invited to lecture in Toronto Synagogues on centuries-old Muslim tolerance towards Jew and Christian communities living within Muslim societies.

      In answer to the question of why he refuses to hate, he, a devout Muslim, referred to Prophet Mohamed’s (pbuh) dictum that he is strongest who controls his anger.

      Rachel Pope, an Israeli medical student, posted his admiration for Dr. Izzeldine at Lancet Global Health Network: “Although I am also heart broken because of Dr. Abuelaish’s loss, I am trying to remember his optimism and share it with others so that change can be made. Thinking of Dr. Abuelaish’s constant smile, even when speaking about unpleasant things, reminds me of what Howard Zinn writes in the Optimism of Uncertainty: “An optimist isn’t necessarily a blithe, slightly sappy whistler in the dark of our time. To be hopeful in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness…and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory.”

      Dr. Abuelaish’s dedication to promoting personal understanding across barriers of religion and nationality is important. However, that alone will not bring about the needed changes. Israel has a vested interest in continuing its oppression, and he does not offer a plan to overcome it.

  • Neocon front orgs
    • Senator Joe Lieberman: “Is it fair to say that Iranian-backed special groups are responsible for the murder of hundreds of American soldiers and thousands of Iraqi soldiers and civilians?”

      Gen. David Petreaus: “It certaily is – That is correct.” – Gen. Petreaus testimony to US Senate, April 8-9, 2008.

      "The dozens of accusations that Iran was behind the Iraqi resistance and supplying arms and bomb technology without a scrap of evidence. All propaganda and rubbish – like Saddam’s nuclear programme, his weapons of mass destruction, his collaboration with Al-Qaeda, his mobile chemical laboratories. All now officially certified lies," Christopher King.

    • CBS’s anchor, Katie Couric, who interviewed Benjamin Netanyahu recently, asked him why 71% of Israeli Jews hate Obama? She also wanted to know if Bibi trusts Obama? Is Bibi satisfied with Obama’s policy towards Islamic Iran? Ignoring Bibi’s rant – Katie, however, did succeed in telling her Americans audience that the important thing is what Netanyahu thinks is better for them and not their elected President......

  • Hirst: Lobby's bigotry and disdain for US interests mean its days are numbered
    • The founders of the Zionist entity were quite aware of the importance of Litani River for supplying water to their Jewish settlements. That was the reason Israel occupied Lebanon in the 1980s. However, Zionist were awoken from their dream by the Islamic Resistance which force the mighty Jewish army and its Lebanese Christian collaborators out of Southern Lebanon in 2000 after waging military resistance for almost 18 years. Zionists never forgot that humiliation, and thus in Summer 2006, with the help of the US and EU allies - Israel dumped its 30,000 soldiers into Lebanon to fight less than 2000 Hizbullah fighters. However, after 34-days, the Jewish army was humiliated for the second time.

      Zionists cannot afford a pro-Iran militia on their borders - and thus would not mind committing their third suicidal venture. Tehran would be more than happy to see the elephant being kicked around by the little mouse once again!

  • Politico's Mike Allen lends legitimacy to neocon smear org
    • Joseph Farah in his recent article repeated the good-old western colonialists’ rant: “A land without people for a people without a land”. The Judeo-Christian invaders of Americana used the rant to justify the Holocaust of 100-180 million natives who lived on the continent before Christopher Columbus’s ‘incidental’ discovery in 1492 CE. This happens to be one of the several dozens of myths propagated by the World Zionist Congress to create a Judeo-Christian colonial entity in the heartland of Islam.

      In his July 9, Israeli Hasbara piece, ‘The phoney Mideast debate’, Farah starts with usual Israeli whinning that Barack Obama is abandoning America’s best ally in the Middle East by not apply Israeli agenda in US foreign policy towards Palestinians (or Syria, Hizbullah and Islamic Republic for that matter).

      Then Farah goes on to call Israel as an “underdog state” in 1967 – which even the Israelis would object to – because even then they boasted Israel being having the world’s fifth most powerful army and the country having the capability to nuke most of neighboring Arab capitals.

  • The myth of West Bank prosperity: 'A Lexus is no substitute for individual freedom and dignity'
    • When we have sell-outs like Manji, Fareed Zakaria and Joe Farah - it's hard to find the truth about what's going on in occupied Palestine or the rest of the Muslim world.

      Joseph Farah in his recent article repeated the good-old western colonialists’ rant: “A land without people for a people without a land”. The Judeo-Christian invaders of Americana used the rant to justify the Holocaust of 100-180 million natives who lived on the continent before Christopher Columbus’s ‘incidental’ discovery in 1492 CE. This happens to be one of the several dozens of myths propagated by the World Zionist Congress to create a Judeo-Christian colonial entity in the heartland of Islam.

      In his July 9, Israeli Hasbara piece, ‘The phoney Mideast debate’, Farah starts with usual Israeli whinning that Barack Obama is abandoning America’s best ally in the Middle East by not apply Israeli agenda in US foreign policy towards Palestinians (or Syria, Hizbullah and Islamic Republic for that matter).

      Then Farah goes on to call Israel as an “underdog state” in 1967 – which even the Israelis would object to – because even then they boasted Israel being having the world’s fifth most powerful army and the country having the capability to nuke most of neighboring Arab capitals.

      Farah claims that Yasar Arafat was an Egyptian (he was born Cairo, but his family was Palestinian) and the so-called ‘Palestinians’ had been citizens of Jordan and other countries. The ‘self-denial’ prefer to ignore the fact that almost every Israeli has foreign roots and most of them were even born in East european countries. Palestine existed, as a state or a Wilyat, on the world map for centuries until it was wiped-off by the European Jews in 1948. The present-day Jordan was carved out of Palestine by the British colonialists in 1921.

      Farah then parrots Golda Meir’s denial of history by saying: “There is no such thing as Palestinian nation”. I wonder, if Farah had the time to study Jew historian Shlomo Sand who recently claimed in book that the Jews were \’invented\’ only a 100 year ago! According to Ottoman census – The Jewish population of Israel was 5% and they owned 2.5% of the land.

      Before he finish his rant – Farah, like the rest of atheist Zionist Jewish leaders, claimed that Jews were promised Palestine by God (not Jesus, for sure!). Rev. Ted Pike, on the other hand, claims that “nowhere does the Bible hints that Jews can return as a nation in unrighteousness as they did in the 20th century“.

      Farah’s claim that the ancestors of the current world Jewry of 12.7 million were the Israelites who were driven out of the land in the first century and dispersed throught the whole world. Elizabeth Dilling in her book The Plot Against Christianity debunks this Zionist fable.

  • Presbyterians insist on 'breaking down the walls' in Israel/Palestine despite pressure from the Jewish community
    • Those 'anti-Semite' Presbyterians.........

      New York’s oldest Jewish daily, Forward, published an article by Donald Snyder, under the title “For Jews, Swedidh City is ‘place to move away from’, on July 7, 2010. In the article the writer says that with the incrase of Muslim population (local converts and immigrants), the cases of ‘anti-Semitism’ is on the rise in Sweden and the rest of European countries.......

  • In 'NYT,' commenters brand Israel 'fascist'
    • US professor Ian Buruma (Bard College, N.Y.) comes up with an interesting comparison to defend 'the poor little Israel'.

      In this article, Ian Buruma, in order to cover the over sixty years of European Jew occupation of an Arab country, the on-going genocide of the natives and the neigboring Arab people since 1948, Israel’s wars on all its neighboring countries and occupation for the creation of the Eretz Israel (Greater Israel), a demographic Jewish entity – he calls Turkish Prime Minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s, reaction to Israeli commandos attack on the unarmed Gaza Freedom Flotilla, killing nine Turkish aid workers, on May 31 – as “hysterical”........

    • Well - Israeli writer, Yossi Sarid, quoted an Israeli Jew in Ha’aretz (Feb. 2009) as saying: “If I were a young Palestinian, I’d fight the Jews fiercely, even by means of terror. Anyone who says anything different is telling you lies.”

      Ehud Barack told Gideon Levi ten years ago: “If I had been a born-Palestinian, I would join a terror organization“.

      Just imagine the reaction of AIPAC - had those statement come from Iranian or their President Dr. Ahmadinejad.

  • Leveretts shout, Israel and the lobby are pushing us to war with Iran
    • If one study Israel history from object sources - one would be surprised to learn that Israel may have lost in PR but always reaped economic and military benefits from all its conflicts and wars. Mmmay it be Lebanon war, Iraq war, Afghan war or even Gaza blockade.

      The Israeli apologists rants that the blockade of Gaza, though hurts Israelis economically, must be kept in force to stop Islamic Resistance receiving arms from its supporters in Islamic Iran, Turkey, Syria and Lebanon. However, in reality, Zionist entity is heaping economic benefits from its blockade of Gaza and the West Bank. Before the blockade, Israelis used to exploit Palestinian natural resource and cheap labor – and now the Shylocks have found way to gain profit from their blockade.

      The Gaza Strip is the most aid-dependent area in the world. Without the ability to export and to import raw materials, without the needed infrastructure for local industry, the Gaza Strip is unable to generate sufficient local income to sustain its population and must depend on aid. The Israeli siege thus creates the conditions for large amounts of aid to be sent to Gaza.

    • One doesn’t need a PhD to understand that most of America’s conflicts and wars have been been the brainchilds of Jewish lobby groups who control the country’s mainstream media and all government and military institutions. Their grip on American thinking can be judged by the recent villification of Lebanese Christian White House press icon Helen Thomas and CNN’s firing of its senior Middle East editor for 20 years, Octavia Nasr, for ‘feeling sorry’ at the death of Sheikh Faddallah in Lebanon.

      Iran has not invaded any of its neighbors for the last 150 years – while Israel has invaded and occupied parts of all of its neighboring countries since it was created by Russia, Britain and America. Israel is on record for threatening to nuke Arab capitals but also some European nations too.

      Professor Dr. Steven R. Feldman (Wake Forest University) in an article, titled “A Jewish American’s Evolving View of Israel”, published in ‘The American Council for Judaism’ – exposed the suicidal nature of Israel.

  • A poem for my mother
    • Funny though - every time Iranian President Dr. Ahmadinejad reminds the West that it were they who expeled and murdered the Jews - he is called "a Holocaust denier" by both the Jewish and the western leaders.

      “If the Europeans are telling the truth in their claim that they have killed six million Jews in the holocaust during the WW II – which seems they’re right in their claim because they insist on it and arrest and imprison those who oppose it, why the Palestinian nation should pay for the crime? why they come to the very heart of the Islamic world and are committing crimes against the dear Palestine using bombs, rockets, missiles and sanctions? If you have committed the crime, so give a piece of your land somewhere in Europe or America and Canada or Alaska to set up their own state there……”

  • Toy Israeli houses for Italian kids, destroyed homes for Palestinian children
    • Italy has long been an 'Islamophobe' Zionist Occupied Government (ZOG). Not long ago, an Israeli citizen was sitting in Italian Parliament. The powerful Jewish Lobby was up in arms when the ex-president of Italy, Francesco Cossiga. had told the respected Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera that “the disastrous (911) attack was planned and realized by the American CIA and Mossad with the help of the Zionist world to put under accusation the Arabic Countries and to persuade the Western powers to intervene in Iraq and Afghanistan.”

      And let us not forget, how compassionate Israelis have been towards Tamils and Sri Lankans!!

  • Barney Frank wants to cut military aid everywhere but, unh, hummina hummina hummina
    • Israel is receives an average of 46% of the total annual USAID plus the charitable donations in millions. In 2003, The Christian Science Monitor revealed that Israel had received US$1.6 trillion since 1970s. Some other analyst believe that if one include soft loans and US$3 billion annual military aid to Israel - the figure would be more than US$3 trillion.

      Egypt has been receiving USAID of $1.5 billion per year since it recognized Israel as a 'bribe'.

      The US has military bases in over 45 foreign countries including Israel.

  • Note to Kristof: Palestinians don't need Israeli tutelage with nonviolent protest
  • JFK threatened to abandon Israel over nukes
    • Both John and Robert Kennedy were hated by the pro-Israel Jewish lobbying groups for standing up to Zionist bully, David Ben Gurion. Maybe, that why Ben Obama is acting like a pussy-cat to avoid the same fate which befell on Kennedy brothers. He is sleeping under Israeli lollybee that Israel is still the regional power and not Turkey-Iran alliance.

  • Milbank column damning 'Israel lobby' elicits swift tirade from Camera
  • Memo to American Jews: Discover the Nakba
    • Some views of Jew scholars on Nakba.....

      “Even Arabs can be labeled ‘anti-Semitic’, although they’re in fact Semites and do not have to link any claim to the Holy Land to descent from seventh century converts to Judaism, as do the Ashkenazi Jews of Europe from whom half of the Israelis and most American Jews, including this writer, are descended,” Alfred Lilienthal, an Orthodox Jew, in ‘What Cost Holocaustomania’, which appeared in the Washington Report on Middle East affairs, April 1998.

      “Judaism is not a religion, it’s a law, religionized,” Moses Mendelsohn.

      “The Noahide Laws, at first glance, innocently appear to be a take-off on the Ten Commandments. Their defining features though, is the fact that among the Seven is one which is not “thou shalt not” but which commands that courts be established to punish those guilty of breaking one of the other Six. The punishment is death and method of execution is decapitation. Jehovah, the giver of both the Talmudic and Noahide Laws, is not our Heavenly Father/Creator. Jehovah is the god of ZION, a symbolic satanic force which drives the plan and its unGodly, evil intentions,” Jackie Patru in Jewish Persecution.

      "I had always felt weak in my understanding of how Israel was created in 1948. The details we were taught were rather sketchy. I found United Nations data that said about 700,000 Palestinians became refugees in the fighting of 1948. That seemed odd. If Jews had come to a land of empty swamps and deserts as I had been taught, how did so many Palestinian men, women and children become refugees? The part of the story that said Jews had come to an empty land seemed like it couldn’t be true," Professor Dr. Steven R. Feldman (Wake Forest University).........

    • The Nakba continues even after 62 years - though under different conditions....

      In 2006, Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu paid special tribute to Irgun, the Jewish terrorist organization. He dedicated a plaque at the rebuilt King David hotel, which Irgun had bombed in 1946, killing 91, primarily British. In 1948 Irgun slaughtered more than 100 innocent Palestinian men, women, and children. Zionists then drove 800,000 panic-stricken Arabs out of Israel to eventually inhabit concentration camps in Lebanon, Gaza, and the West Bank. Netanyahu made it clear the terrorists’ blood flowed in his veins. Irgun made the Jewish state possible and he was profoundly grateful. By authorizing Israel’s recent terrorist attack on the Free Gaza flotilla, Netanyahu showed his likeness of spirit......

  • Petraeus emails show general scheming with journalist to get out pro-Israel storyline
    • Gen. Petreaus’s military career is a tale of honesty and dishonesty, opportunism, and cowardice. It indicates that Gen. David Petraeus, who just replaced Gen. McChrystal as commander of foreign forces in Afghanistan, has frankly assessed that the intimate U.S. relationship with Israel is costing U.S. lives in the Middle East. But he’s concerned that his views may cost him politically and so uses buddies in the media to conceal them.

  • Nonviolence and the struggle for Palestinian-Israeli equality
    • If one study the history of the creation and survival of Israel - he will find out that it was mostly based violence. Therefore, it would be naive to believe that Zionist leaders would understand the true meaning of nonviolence. Gandhi told World Zionist movement leaders in 1937 - to stay put in their western countries and wage nonviolent protests to fight anti-Semitism and equal rights. However, the leaders chose violence and terrorism to colonize Palestine - but now they expect from their Palestinian victims to carry nonviolent resistance.

      The political landscape is changing rapidly. New regional powers (Turkey, Iran, Syria and Hizbullah) are replacing the old colonial guards (the US, UK and Israel).

      Former U.S. Ambassador Chas Freeman has noted that the rising influence and independence of the nondeferential powers has inserted dysfunctionality into US policymaking. It seems that coping with the “winds of change” is set to be even harder for the United States than it was for Britain or France or Russia. The leaders of those colonial powers at least understood that earlier war entailed such change.

      It’s very difficult for the US leaders to learn from the past history – as they still live in the ‘fantasy’ of being the ‘liberator’ of Europe and the ‘leader’ of the so-called ‘free world’. It’s more difficult because the US leadership is controlled by a foreign country (Israel) which has its own axe to grind, especially, against the Muslim world.
