حرب 2006: السقوط الإسرائيلي مستمرّ والسيّد سيُصلّي في القدس

يوليو 16, 2019

العميد د. أمين محمد حطيط

بعد 13 عاماً على العدوان الإسرائيلي على لبنان تستمر تداعيات السقوط الإسرائيلي وانتصار المقاومة، وتستمر هذه التداعيات على أكثر من صعيد وفي أكثر من اتجاه الى الحدّ الذي مكّن السيد حسن نصرالله من إطلاق وعد جديد مزلزل قال فيه «وفقاً للمنطق والتحليل السليم أنا سأصلّي في القدس». قال هذا علماً بأنّ عمره لامس الـ 59 عاماً، والسيد كما عوّد الجميع صديقاً كان أو عدواً لا ينطق إلا بما يراه واقعياً ممكن الحصول ولا يعد إلا بما يراه قابلاً للتنفيذ وفقاً للإمكانات المتوفرة. وقد أطلق السيد وعده هذا في معرض الحديث عن انتصار المقاومة ما يعني أنّ تحرير القدس الذي يعنيه هو التحرير الذي سيكون على يد المقاومة وفي العشرات القليلة الآتية من السنين، فلماذا قال السيد ما قاله ولمَ أو هل جازف بوعده؟

إنّ المتتبع لمجريات الأمور في المنطقة وفي كلّ ما يتصل بالصراع مع العدو الإسرائيلي وحوله يدرك وبكلّ موضوعية أنّ هناك فئتين من الحقائق تشكلتا في فترة حرب وما بعد حرب 2006. حقائق لا يتعامى عنها إلا حاقد موتور رافض للحقيقة او جاهل أعمى عاجز عن رؤية الحقيقة، وكما هو معلوم ليس لرأي أيّ من الطرفين وزن.اما الفئة الأولى من الحقائق تلك فهي ما نتج مباشرة عن حرب 2006 وفيها تحطّمت الأركان الرئيسيّة للعقيدة العسكرية الإسرائيلية واختلت استراتيجيتها الهجومية اختلالاً كبيراً، حيث خرجت «إسرائيل» من الحرب وقد فقدت «الحرية في قرار الحرب»، وخسرت عنصر «الحرب على أرض الخصم». وودّعت الى الأبد نظرية «الحرب الخاطفة» وسقطت من يدها «نظرية سلاح الطيران الحاسم«.

لقد، وضعت حرب 2006 حداً نهائياً لمقولة الحرب الخاطفة التي كانت تشكل الركن الأساس في تلك العقيدة، فقبل 2006 كانت «إسرائيل» تملك الجزئيات الثلاث في مسألة قرار الحرب وتوقيتها ونطاقها، فهي مَن يبدأ الحرب وهي مَن يحدّد نطاق الحرب زماناً وميداناً وهي مَن يوقف الحرب، أما بعد 2006 فلم يعد لـ «إسرائيل» إلا الجزئية الأولى أيّ من يبدأ الحرب فتستطيع أن تطلق هي الطلقة الأولى لكن النطاق الزمني والمكاني وتاريخ انتهاء الحرب باتت أموراً خارج يدها كلياً. وهذا ما شكل ولا يزال من أهمّ الخسائر الاستراتيجية للعدو التي قيّدت حريته في الذهاب للحرب، لأنه يخشى من مدتها وباتت للمرة الأولى في حياتها مردوعه بسلاح المقاومة.

كما أسقطت الحرب الركن الثاني في العقيدة العسكرية الإسرائيلية المتمثل بمقولة «الحرب على أرض الخصم». وهنا نذكر أنه قبل حرب 2006 كانت «إسرائيل» تخوض الحروب على الجبهات وشعبها يمارس السباحة والسياحة في المنتجعات والمرابع الترفيهية مطمئناً، لكنها مع حرب 2006 وبعدها تغيرت الصورة وباتت «إسرائيل» تخشى من أمرين يرعبانها. الأول: وضع «إسرائيل» كلها تحت النار وتهديد ما أسمي الجبهة الداخلية بنار شل وتدمير وفشل «إسرائيل» في تأمين الحماية والمناعة لشعبها كما فشلها في تطبيق مقولة «شعب يعمل تحت النار». أما الثاني فهو ما عبر عنه الأمين العام لحزب الله السيد حسن نصر الله بأن «على المقاومين ان ينتظروا أمراً بالقتال في الجليل شمال فلسطين المحتلة». وهو عمل إذا حصل فسيكون الأول من نوعه منذ العام 1948 وسيتكامل مع الأمر الأول ويُسقط نهائياً مقولة «الحرب على أرض الخصم» لتتقدّم مقولة الحرب المفتوحة في الزمان والمكان وعلى جانبي الحدود.

أما العنصر الثالث الذي أسقطته حرب الـ 33 يوماً فكان سلاح الطيران الذي طالما فاخرت به «إسرائيل» واطمأنت اليه، وجعلته «السلاح الحاسم». فقبل 2006 كانت «إسرائيل» تحسم نتائج الحرب من الساعات أو الأيام الأولى بالعمل التدميري الواسع الذي ينفذه طيرانها الذي يمتلك تفوقاً كبيراً وسيطرة جوية تامة، اما في الـ 2006 فقد فشلت «إسرائيل» في تحقيق النتائج المتوخاة من طيرانها رغم أنها ارتكبت جرائم حرب بهذا الطيران وابتدعت «نظرية الضاحية» ونفذتها بتدمير مدينة بكاملها… فالطيران الإسرائيلي فشل في حسم الحرب وفشل في إسكات مصادر نيران المقاومة وفشل في ثني المقاومة عن العمل المؤثر في الميدان. وفي المقابل نجحت المقاومة في إجبار «إسرائيل» على القتال بنمط الجيل الرابع وأرغمتها على معارك الالتحام وووضعت الجندي الإسرائيلي أمام نفق مرعب لا يقوى على دخوله ووضعت بذلك حداً لمقولة «الانتقال الآمن في الميدان» أو «السيطرة والسيادة الإسرائيلية في الميدان». فكل هذا بات من الماضي وباتت المظلة الجوية عاجزة عن رد طلقة نار يرميها مقاوم من مسافة أمتار قليلة.

أما الأخطر من كل ما تقدّم فقد كان سقوط «الهيبة العسكرية الإسرائيلية» وثقة الصهاينة بجيشهم وسقوط مقولة الجيش الذي لا يُقهر، فحرب تموز 2006 فضحت هذا الجيش وسلّطت الأضواء على عناصر الضعف فيه ومكّنت السيد حسن نصر الله من وصف الكيان الإسرائيلي بـ «بيت العنكبوت» الذي هو أوهن البيوت بالوصف القرآني.

أما بعد الحرب وخاصة في السنوات العشر الأخيرة أي منذ بدء الحريق العربي وما جرى من قتال على أرض سورية وما تبعها من متغيرات دولية وتطورات عسكرية في جانب المقاومة ومحورها وعلى صعيد قدراتها وخبراتها فقد باتت «إسرائيل» في مواجهة مشهد عملاني واستراتيجي جديد لم تعرفه منذ اغتصابها لفلسطين، مشهد يقوم على ما يلي:

أولاً: إن الحرب المستقبلية ستكون حرباً إقليمية شاملة لكامل المنطقة مع تعدّد الجبهات ولن تستطيع «إسرائيل» أن تستفرد بأي من مكوّنات محور المقاومة وسقط عنصر آخر في عقيدتها العسكرية يتمثل بنظرية «القتال على جبهة واحدة وتجميد الجبهات الأخرى».

ثانياً: وهن البنية الإسرائيلية أمام فعالية النار التدميرية للمقاومة. وهو ما عرضه السيد حسن نصر الله في حديثه الأخير وحدد فيه البقعة الرئيسة التي تحتوي على الأساسيات في بنك اهداف المقاومة وكلها تقع في منطقة لا تتجاوز 1200 كل م2 وهي ما يمكن تسميته بـ «إسرائيل الحيوية» أو «قلب إسرائيل»، حيث تتجمّع كل مراكز القيادة والإدارة والإنتاج والعمل في السياسة والأمن والاقتصاد والمال حتى باتت تسميتها بأنها منطقة قلب «إسرائيل» هي تسمية موضوعية جداً، فإذا شلّت أو توقفت عن العمل ماتت «إسرائيل» وهو أمر باتت المقاومة قادرة على إنجازه لما تملك من أسلحة نار تدميرية فاعلة.

ثالثاً: فعالية القدرات الهجومية للقوات البرية التي باتت المقاومة تملكها ما يخيف «إسرائيل». وهو ما أكد عليه السيد حسن نصر الله بوضوح مشدداً على حجم هذه القوى والخبرات العالية التي اكتسبتها في الحرب الدفاعية التي خاضتها في سورية ما مكّنها من بناء عنصر قتالي اقتحامي فاعل في البر قادر على الهجوم والاقتحام في أصعب الظروف.

نقول هذا مع أننا لا نسقط من الحساب احتمال التدخل الغربي بقيادة أميركية، وامتلاك «إسرائيل» للسلاح النووي، لكننا نعرف أيضاً ان الغرب يقدم السلاح والذخائر ولا يقدم الدماء لحماية «إسرائيل» في حرب ستكون مفتوحة وستكون فيها مصالحه في خطر، أما عن السلاح النووي فإنه في الأصل سلاح ردع لا يُستعمل، وإذا استعملته «إسرائيل» فسيكون الدليل القاطع على نهايتها وأكتفي بهذه الإشارة دون تفصيل أكثر.

لكل ذلك أقول إن «إسرائيل» انكشفت الآن وظهرت الثغرات في بنيتها، ولهذا لا نتوقع أن تبادر هي في المدى المنظور الى حرب تهدد بها دائماً، وتبقى الحرب مستبعدة أيضاً لأن المقاومة لن تبدأ بها ولن تبادر اليها، اما إذا ارتكبت «إسرائيل» الخطأ المميت وذهبت الى الحرب… واعتقد أنها سترتكب هذا الخطأ يوماً… فإنها ستكون الحرب التي تفتح طريق السيد حسن نصر الله الى القدس ليصلي فيها، كما أعلن.

US Embassy in Iraq Serves As Mossad, Daesh HQ – Iraqi MP

By Staff, Agencies

A senior Iraqi MP warned that the US embassy in Baghdad is involved in “suspicious activities,” saying agents of the ‘Israeli’ spy agency Mossad and Daesh [the Arabic acronym for terrorist ‘ISIS/ISIL’ group] have been spotted regularly visiting the diplomatic mission.

“The US embassy in Baghdad has turned into a center for ‘Israel’s’ Mossad and Daesh terrorists,” Hassan Salem was quoted as saying by the Iraqi Arabic-language al-Sumariya news website.

Salem said the US embassy is interfering in Iraq’s internal affairs by spying, spreading rumors and hatching plots.

“The US embassy’s violation of laws and forgetting its responsibilities based on the international laws mean that the center could not be called an embassy and therefore, its closure is legally necessary,” the Iraqi lawmaker said.

The MP had earlier suggested that US forces in Ain al-Assad military base were protecting Daesh ringleader Ibrahim al-Samarrai, aka Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, in the western desert of Iraq’s Anbar province.

“Al-Baghdadi is using the Anbar desert as a safe haven, while the US forces provide him with all means of support from their station at the Ain al-Assad military base in Anbar province,” Salem said in February.

The Iraqi MP argued then that America’s support for al-Baghdadi “stems from Washington’s fear of a draft bill on expelling foreign troops from Iraq, which the parliament intends to vote on during the new legislative term.”

Also in February, former Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki for the first time divulged explosive secrets about how the United States supported Daesh and intentionally allowed the Takfiri terror outfit to gain power in Iraq so that Washington could creep back into the Arab country.

He said the administration of former US President Barack Obama had played a key role in the creation of Daesh by allowing the terrorist group to overrun Iraqi territories.

The Post-war Generations’ Heritage, A Picture Can Tell it All

By Zeinab Daher

In visual marketing, a picture is worth 60,000 words; that’s why a text cannot compete with images, especially in times of war.

Science proved that the human brain is able to process images 60,000 times faster than a text. This makes clear that it takes a picture less time to reach a wider spectrum of audience than a text does.

Mr. Aziz Taher, a professional journalist photographer who heads the Press Photographers Syndicate in Lebanon, covered the brutal ‘Israeli’ war on Lebanon that happened to take place the summer of 2006. The war, that lasted some 33 days, from July 12th until August 14th, was the toughest in the Middle Eastern modern history.

In an exclusive interview with Al-Ahed news website, Mr. Taher introduces the importance of photos by recalling his own experience as a southerner from the Lebanese village of Houla.

President of the Press Photographers Syndicate in Lebanon, Mr. Aziz Taher – HQ: Hamra, Beirut

“For those who don’t know, in 1948, the ‘Israeli’ enemy committed a horrible criminal massacre in Houla. Because the massacre was not documented with photos, people forgot about it, although it claimed the lives of more than 70 martyrs. The massacre was absented from the society’s public memory. Here lies the importance of the photo.”

As the young villagers started talking about the massacre, people got to learn its story, the man narrates, “but it wasn’t deep-rooted like any other ‘Israeli’ massacre that was photographed such as the Deir Qassem, Sabra and Shatila, al-Mansouri and Qana massacres…”

Hereby, Mr. Taher moves to shed light on the importance of photos during the July 2006 war: “The ‘Israelis’ used to kill us then tell the entire world that they are in danger. Today, however, the equation has changed thanks to the picture.”

Photography as a profession

Mr. Aziz Taher, the professional photographer who works with several international news agencies, including Reuters, spoke on behalf of other Lebanese photojournalists, classifying their affiliations into patriotic and professional.

“Regarding our professional affiliation, we didn’t need anything to add to our photos; the facts on the ground were far worse than intervening in any picture. Massacres committed by the ‘Israeli’ enemy against our people, land, electricity, water, sea, and all what belongs to our life as Lebanese people, were bigger than being captured in a photo,” the man stresses, showing that every single photo was enough to expose the enemy’s brutality.

“On the patriotic level, the Lebanese photographers started observing and pursuing every massacre the ‘Israeli’ enemy committed against our people. This was a reason our photos reached international media outlets, having a strong influence that explained to the international public opinion this war, how it started and what is being committed [during it].”

He further elaborates, “During our coverage, six of my colleagues, and I, faced an intensive campaign by some sides that called us a ‘Hezbollah propaganda’, they started attacking us on the internet claiming that all of our photos are fabricated and fake.”

“They called me the ‘king of toys’, claiming that I prepare my cameras, my lenses and equipment, and I prepare toys, then I reach the “Hezbollah” attacked site and throw the toys there and capture the scene claiming it is a residential area.”

In conclusion, this showed how much harmful the photos were for them “as they tend to claim that we were making up those scenes, adding some toys and children in our photos, to say that ‘Israel’ is building residential areas. But the truth is that we didn’t need anything [when capturing the scenes] because all the places we took photos of are residential. There might be a Hezbollah center in each place, but the entire neighborhoods were residential. All neighborhoods embraced a history, heritage and memories, and it is the same for all the destroyed apartments.”

The man recalls the scenes of photos of the Dahiyeh [Beirut’s southern suburb] describing that they appeared as if an earthquake hit the place. “The case is similar for Bint Jbeil and all other villages where we have passed. The ‘Israeli’ enemy had rancorously bombed Lebanon, sometimes just ‘to have fun’, or just to destroy the place.”

Unforgettable incidents, scenes from the war

According to the veteran photographer, “Photos of the children were the most touching during the war. Scenes of the massacres committed by the ‘Israeli’ enemy were so much moving, lenses got tired of capturing photos of the victims… our eyes were exhausted because of the level of criminality and the daily killing by the ‘Israeli’ enemy against our people.”

Mr. Taher further stresses: “We were touched by every scene. We were all moved by what happened. But the moment I was moved the most was when colleague Layal Najib was martyred after the ‘Israeli’ warplanes bombed her car despite showing the ‘Press’ signal. She was targeted just like any other Lebanese national.”

President of the Press Photographers Syndicate in Lebanon, Mr. Aziz Taher – HQ: Hamra, Beirut

Layal Najib, the martyr of photography who was killed in South Lebanon, is a symbol of all other martyrs who dies during this war, the man points out. “She is not different from them, but she is a photojournalist, and they [pretend] to talk about human rights and freedoms, Layal exposed the example of this enemy that doesn’t differentiate between civilians and journalists and that considers the whole place as a scorched-land.”

We were moved by many scenes of the martyrs, and the destruction… imagine that when you enter the Dahiyeh, you find all the places and buildings you know became rubble, completely damaged, he says.

“Every scene from the July war, just like all other wars, stops you at every detail, the lack of water, the lack of fuel, and the entire sufferings people have faced during the war…”

Speaking on behalf of the Lebanese photojournalists, Mr. Taher says: “We’ve taken pictures of all the ‘Israeli’ aggressions against Lebanon until the historic liberation day in 2000. Each one of us was touched by a picture he/she took at some place, but all of us were moved by the daily photographs we took which were related to the ‘Israeli’ enemy.”

Absented photos

Asked whether the photographers tended to hide certain scenes during the war, Mr. Aziz Taher explains that: “Most of the photos I took during the war were in the southern suburb. Then we started moving to the areas we could reach, to several regions in the south until we reached Bint Jbeil… During the war, we have witnessed many scenes especially those of the resistance fighters, but we absented them due to a patriotic sense…”

He justifies that by saying that “there was no interest to show from where the rocket was launched, we’ve seen that but we intended to absent those scenes. It was the same case regarding the photos of the resistance men we’ve seen when arriving at a certain village; we tried not to take any photo of their faces although we, as photographers, are curious to take photos of a rocket launcher or anything related to the resistance. However, we decided to hide them.”

“In this battle, you are not looking for a scoop, as you see all this suffering, you should show solidarity, at least by the photos you take, with the resistance men who are roaming between valleys, fields and villages to fight this enemy. Your duty is to hide their photos, not because they don’t deserve to be seen; they indeed deserve that their photos head all newspapers and media outlets, but being keen for their lives, and the continuation of the resistance work, we had this intention to hide their faces.”

Covering other wars

In the world of photography and media, wars represent a subject that attracts the pros. It is a passion. Many photographers, during major events, stop their jobs, while many others become more induced. There are two types of motivation, the professional and the patriotic one, the man notes.

“When taking photos in times of war, especially during the July 2006 war, you gain a lot of experience as much as you expose your life to danger. Your life will daily be endangered because while taking photos at any place, the warplanes suddenly start operating or carry out strikes. A road may be blocked, a bridge may be bombed… it is a very tough experience the photographers have faced the like of which the Lebanese people did.”

Pointing out to covering wars in other places, Mr. Taher elaborates: “I covered the Kuwait war… Photography used to include more details, it was more difficult and more adventurous before mobile phones. Today, with the availability of mobile phones, the entire society takes photos. I wish I could have taken part in the Yemen war, also in Iraq… and any other place in the world where wars take place, but I didn’t get the opportunity to do that. There are photographers everywhere, but on the personal level, I wished I could have covered the events in Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as all other places of war in our region and abroad.”

According to the Chinese proverb, a picture is worth a thousand words, he states.

“I say that every photo that needs an explanation is an unsuccessful one. The photo should express itself, this is what I teach my students at the Lebanese University. The photo speaks up for itself. The press photo is the most dangerous, most entertaining and most real. Hadn’t it expressed its idea to the people, it is definitely unsuccessful.”

The man notes that a picture is worth a thousand words when it is used properly and reflected honestly. “A photo records the memory of the people. Our photos are not only taken to be published. Sometimes we take photos that we don’t publish. They are intended to document the people’s collective memory, as I previously mentioned the Houla Massacre that was not documented with photos, leading to its absence from the people’s memories. Today, however, the July war or any other incident became tangible to the public through photos.”

A man with such a rich experience and history makes anyone realize that you can look at a picture for one second but think of it an entire life. This is the case of the July 2006 war. With the photos he and his colleagues have taken, they have bought the new generations, especially those who weren’t present at the time, return tickets to many moments otherwise gone. They have also commemorated history and taken part in the heroic duty of defending the nation.

Lieberman to Netanyahu over Hezbollah: You Bark More than Bite

By Staff, Agencies

Former “Israeli” War Minister Avigdor Lieberman launched an attack on the apartheid entity’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu this time against the background of verbal tension with Hezbollah.

Lieberman described Netanyahu as “the dog that barks and does not bite”, in response to the latter’s threat to the Lebanese Hezbollah to “strike a crushing military blow against him and for Lebanon if he dared to commit folly and attack Israel.”

“I consider the apology for killing the Hamas element a complete madness,” the former minister said in a radio interview on Sunday. “It is a sign of panic. The prime minister is immediately preparing a list of more concessions that are reckless and irresponsible.”

Lieberman further stated: “Every month we pay more and more bribes to Hamas so that they do not attack us.”

Although Lieberman is considered to be from the “Israeli” right-wing camp, headed by Netanyahu, he entered into sharp disagreements with him when he resigned from his cabinet in November 2018. The differences between them deepened after Lieberman refused to join Netanyahu’s recent government, April 2019.

It is important to note that Netanyahu’s threat came in a speech on Sunday at the start of the weekly cabinet session, after Hezbollah Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah threatened Friday to hit ammonia containers in Haifa Bay.

On the occasion of the 13th anniversary of the 2006 war, Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that “the resistance today is stronger than ever.”

The Goy Spouse is the New Hitler

In July 2018 the three leading Jewish papers in Britain declared that Jeremy Corbyn, a man who has dedicated his life to the battle against racism, was an “existential threat” to British Jewry. As of today, Mr Corbyn is no longer the enemy  #1. The Labour leader can now chill out. The new global enemy of the Jews is apparently the Goy partner.   Earlier this month, Rafi Peretz, Israel’s education minister likened intermarriage to a  ‘second Holocaust’.

Minister Peretz said that assimilation of Jews around the world, but primarily in the US was “like a second Holocaust.” He also said that, due to intermarriages in the last 70 years, the Jewish people “lost 6 million people.” I guess that if just one more Jew falls for a ‘shikse*’’, the number of ‘lost Jews’ will climb to as many as 6.000.001.  When this happens, the Goy spouse may well have become the new Hitler.

Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, was among the American Jewish leaders critical of Peretz’s remarks.  “It’s inconceivable to use the term ‘Holocaust’ to describe Jews choosing to marry non-Jews. It trivializes the Shoah,”  Greenblatt didn’t protest the inhumane attitude to Goyim expressed by Peretz’s supremacist statement. Instead, Greenblatt confirmed what many of us learned to accept long ago: that the Holocaust is the new Jewish God.  Jews can do pretty much whatever they like,  except ‘trivialize” the (holy) Holocaust.

I hope that our  Jewish anti Zionist ‘allies’ at JVP & co now realise that “Jews for Shikzes” (JFS) will probably become their next international ‘solidarity’ move.

*Shiksa (Yiddish: שיקסע, romanized: shikse) is a horrid derogatory Yiddish term often used by European Jews to mean a non-Jewish woman or girl.

Epstein: Protected Because He Is a Spy? — A Backgrounder

Source

By IPA

July 14, 2019 “Information Clearing House” –   Vicky Ward, who tried to report on Jeffrey Epstein’s criminality as early as 2003, recently wrote that Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta “cut the non-prosecution deal with one of Epstein’s attorneys because he had ‘been told’ to back off, that Epstein was above his pay grade. ‘I was told Epstein “belonged to intelligence” and to leave it alone,’ he told his interviewers in the Trump transition, who evidently thought that was a sufficient answer and went ahead and hired Acosta. (The Labor Department had no comment when asked about this.)” See Ward’s recent pieces for The Daily Beast: “Jeffrey Epstein’s Sick Story Played Out for Years in Plain Sight” and “I Tried to Warn You About Sleazy Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein in 2003.”

The Observer notes that Acosta was asked if Epstein had ties to intelligence agencies at his news conference Wednesday and gave a “a non-denial denial of an epic kind”: “I would [be] hesitant to take this reporting as fact” said Acosta. See “It Sure Looks Like Jeffrey Epstein Was a Spy — But Whose?

Ward charged on “Democracy Now” on Monday: “This is a man who definitely trades in the knowledge he has over the rich and famous, and uses it for leverage. He also introduces rich and famous people, like Bill Clinton, like Donald Trump, to girls.”

Epstein’s associate who allegedly helped connect him with his girl victims is Ghislaine Maxwell. She is the daughter of Robert Maxwell, the media mogul who died under mysterious circumstances in 1991. Investigative reporter Seymour Hersh alleged in his book The Samson Option: Israel’s Nuclear Arsenal and American Foreign Policy that Maxwell was tied to the Israeli Mossad. Hersh was sued for the allegation, but then received an apology.

Attorney General William Barr, who spent years at the CIA, stated he would recuse himself on the Epstein matter on Monday and then reversed himself on Tuesday. Barr helped cover up the Iran-Contra scandal by approving the pardons of Elliott Abrams and other officials who were caught in illegal activity. In 1973, Epstein got his start as a math teacher thanks to Barr’s father, Donald Barr, who was headmaster of the elite Dalton School despite Epstein not having a college degree. His New York Times obituary notes that Donald Barr belonged to the Office of Strategic Services (better known as the OSS, the precursor to the CIA).

Julie K. Brown of the Miami Herald has named two women — Virginia Roberts Giuffre and Sarah Ransome — who say that Epstein, when they were very young, directed them to have sex with Alan Dershowitz. Yet, the New York Times and other media continue to reference and even quote Dershowitz about the case without noting that he has been thus accused. Dershowitz was also one of Esptein’s lawyers when Acosta agreed to the non-prosecution agreement. The Times has recently noted that Dershowitz attacked the Herald‘s reporting in an attempt to deprive them of a Pulitzer. A piece by Annie Karni and Maggie Haberman quoted him saying that if you didn’t know Epstein and Trump in the 80s, “you were a nobody” — again, without noting that Dershowitz has so far been accused by two of Epstein’s victims.

Liaquat Ali Khan, the founder of Legal Scholar Academy, and a professor emeritus at the Washburn Law School interviewed Alan Dershowitz in 2004 and wrote that Dershowitz participated in the “Israeli assassination committee that reviews evidence before terrorists are targeted and killed.” Said Dershowitz: “I actually sat in on one of the committee meetings.”

Revanchist Israel Bent on Territorial Expansion. Towards “Greater Israel”?

Global Research, July 15, 2019

Israel is the only nation without official borders. From its inception it was planned this way to extrajudicially annex more territory.

A territorial expansion plan was drawn up in the 1980s as part of the US/Israel plan to redraw the Middle East map to their advantage, wanting subservient puppet regimes installed in partitioned Syria, Lebanon, Iran, and other Arab countries.

In 2006, Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya wrote about “(t)he (US-Israeli) Project for a New Middle East.”

Their objectives remain unchanged, including the creation of “arc of instability, chaos, and violence extending from Lebanon, Palestine, and Syria to Iraq, the Persian Gulf, Iran, and borders of” Central Asia and North Africa.

Endless US-led NATO wars rage in this broader region, no end of them in prospect. Beginning weeks after 9/11, what followed was well planned in advance.

The mother of all false flags launched Washington’s escalated imperial agenda in this oil and other resource-rich part of the world.

US forever wars are part of its divide, conquer and control strategy, the human cost of no consequence. Israel shares the same objective regionally that Washington aims for worldwide.

In 1982, Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs senior advisor Oded Yinon published a document for regional conquest and dominance — titled “A Strategy for Israel in the 1980s.”

Israel Shahak (1933 – 2001) published a translated/edited version titled “The Zionist Plan for the Middle East.”

It’s considered the most explicit, detailed statement of Zionist rage for redrawing the Middle East map to serve Israeli interests.

Its two essential premises include the following:

To survive, Israel must dominate the region and become a world power.

Achieving its imperial aims requires dividing Arab nations into small, easily controlled states – partitioning them along ethnic and sectarian lines as weakened Israeli satellites.

According to Yinon,

“(t)he existence, prosperity and steadfastness of (Israel) depend(s) upon its ability to adopt a new framework for its domestic and foreign affairs,” based on securing its material needs through winnable resource wars and Arab world divisions.

“All the Arab States east of Israel are torn apart, broken up and riddled with inner conflicts even more than those of the Maghreb” (Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Mauritania, and Western Sahara).”

Gulf states are “built upon a delicate house of sand in which there is only oil.” Jordan is in reality Palestine, Amman the same as Nablus.

Other regional states are similar, including Egypt, Iran, Turkey, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and others.

The US, NATO, Israeli scheme is all about creating endless regional violence and chaos, exploited to their advantage for gaining control over regional nations and their valued resources.

In 1948, Israel stole 78% of historic Palestine, siezing the rest in June 1967, including Jerusalem, a UN-designated international city the US and Israel consider the exclusive Jewish state capital, no matter how contrary to international law.

Israel illegally occupies most all valued West Bank land and Jerusalem. It always aimed for maximum Jews and minimum Arabs throughout historic Palestine.

On Friday, UN Special Rapporteur for human rights in Occupied Palestine Michael Lynk said actions of the Jewish state “occupying power (are) bent on further (illegal) territorial annexation.”

During a visit to Amman, Jordan, the Netanyahu regime denied him permission to enter Occupied Palestine.

My earlier articles about Israel/Palestine explained the following:

Occupied Palestinians live in limbo, controlled by a repressive foreign army and a system of institutionalized and codified racism.

They’re denied self-determination, the right of citizenship, and control over their daily lives, what’s fundamental for all free socities.

Living in a constant state of fear, they suffer from economic strangulation, collective punishment, denial of free movement and expression, along with enduring virtually every form of indignity, degradation, and crime against humanity imaginable.

Their population centers are isolated from each other for easier control and theft of their land.

They endure curfews, roadblocks, checkpoints, electric fences, other barriers, mass arrests, imprisonments, torture, separation walls, bulldozed homes, and targeted killings.

Their fundamental rights affirmed under international law are denied by oppressive Israeli regimes, ruling by what Edward Said called “refined viciousness.”

They’re punished by inadequate or denied vital services, punitive taxes, regular neighborhood incursions, land, sea and air attacks, imprisonment of lawmakers for belonging to the wrong party, ethnic cleansing, and slow-motion genocide for praying to the wrong God.

Challenging Israeli authority verbally, in writing, or by peaceful demonstrations risks arrest, injury, or death.

Israel is to Palestinians what Nazi Germany was to Jews, slow-motion extermination compared to industrial scale.

Two million besieged Gazans endure the world’s largest open-air prison, an entire population enduring mass suffocation.

Lynk slammed the Netanyahu regime for failing to fulfill its “obligations as a UN member to cooperate fully with Experts of the United Nations.”

He expressed special concern for Gazans, enduring protracted humanitarian crisis conditions enforced by Israel.

“Palestinians seeking redress through the Israeli legal system face a multitude of obstacles such that ultimately, justice is elusive and largely impossible to obtain,” he stressed, adding:

“Israel’s conduct of the 52-year-old occupation is an affront to modern international law.”

“The United Nations has stated on numerous occasions that the Israeli settlements are illegal, its annexation of East Jerusalem is unlawful, and its violations of the human rights of the Palestinians breach international covenants and treaties.”

“Now is the time for the international community to hold Israel fully accountable for its actions, and to determine whether (its) role as the occupying power has crossed the bright red line into illegality.”

There’s no ambiguity about Israeli high crimes of war and against humanity, its vicious persecution of defenseless Palestinians.

Yet the world community has done nothing to hold the Jewish state accountable, nothing to seek redress for the Palestinian people.

As long as Israel has US support, it’ll continue getting away with mass murder and a whole lot more. They’ll be no end to Palestinian suffering.

Fulfillment of Netanyahu’s campaign pledge to annex illegal settlements if implemented will be the latest Israeli affront to their fundamental rights.

Israel has never been held accountable for “its prolonged occupation, annexation and defiance of international (laws, norms, and standards) with respect to settlements, the separation wall, and collective punishment,” said Lynk.

Nor is it likely ahead unless international tribunals fulfill their obligations to hold serial lawbreaker Israel and its officials accountable for their high crimes.
