‘Israel’ Operated Secret Embassy in Bahrain for 11 Years

‘Israel’ Operated Secret Embassy in Bahrain for 11 Years

By Staff, Agencies

The Zionist entity operated a secret embassy in the Bahraini capital of Manama for more than a decade, the Axios website reported on Wednesday, as the signing of the so-called ‘Abraham Accords’ signals the first official diplomatic relations between the occupation entity and Bahrain.

According to the report, the Zionist regime has worked on establishing quiet diplomatic ties with Bahrain for 11 years, principally through the use of a shell company – The Center for International Development – registered in the Gulf state.

Bahrain archives registered the embassy as a company providing marketing, promotion and investment services, and its website explained that it was a consulting firm for Western companies interested in non-oil investments in the region.

However, the existence of this secret diplomatic office has been classified and only recently came to light following a brief public broadcaster Kan report last week.

According to this investigation into more than a decade of clandestine diplomatic relations between the Zionist entity and Bahrain, the idea of opening a secret embassy was raised in 2007-2008 during a series of meetings with Bahraini Foreign Minister Khaled bin Ahmad Al Khalifa and his former Zionist counterpart, Tzipi Livni.

The decision to open the mission in Manama was preceded by the closure of an ‘Israeli’ mission in Qatar, according to Zionist security officials.

According to the report, the mission was registered on July 13, 2009 under the identity of the known shell company, known as the “Center for International Development”, although it has since changed its name and its new name remains confidential.

The Tel Aviv regime sent a formal request to open an embassy in Manama immediately after relations were officially established on Sunday.

The Irrelevance of Liberal Zionism

Global Justice in the 21st Century

 

Frustrated by Israeli settlement expansion, excessive violence, AIPAC maximalism, Netanyahu’s arrogance, Israel’s defiant disregard of international law, various Jewish responses claim to seek a middle ground. Israel is criticized by this loyal opposition, sometimes harshly, although so is the Palestinian Authority, Hamas, and activists around the world. Both sides are deemed responsible in equal measure for the failure to end the conflict. With such a stance liberal Zionists seek to occupy the high moral ground without ceding political relevance. In contrast, those who believe as I do that Israel poses the main obstacle to achieving a sustainable peace are dismissed by liberal Zionists as either obstructive or unrealistic, and at worst, as anti-Israeli or even anti-Semitic.

Hizbullah dupes Israeli top officials again

Source

Posted on

flag[1]On August 2, 2016, Israeli newspaper YNet reported another saga of Israeli leadership stupidity. It involved MK Amir Peretz, former defense minister, MK Tzipi Livni, former foreign and justice minister, and Mossad ‘sex-pot’, MK Maj. Gen. Eyal Ben-Reuven and Tomer Weinberg, member of Israeli tank crew who survived an attack by Hizbullah fighters in which six Jewish soldiers were killed an two captured while attacking Lebanese village of Aitaa al-Chaab in South Lebanon along Israel-Lebanon border.

The Zionist idiots were tricked into giving interviews over Israeli defeat in 2006 at the hands of Hizbullah fighters by an Italian reporter Michela Moni posing as a reporter with ANSA news agency in Rome assigned to make a documentary for the UK’s BBC channel.

When a documentary containing those interviews was aired by Lebanese satellite channel Al Mayadeen (watch below) on last Saturday instead of BBC – the Zionist idiots were shocked. They told YNet: We have been tricked. They never told us that it would be broadcast by Hizbullah.

In the first segment of the three-part documentary entitled What happened in 2006, the Israeli interviewees – which include Amir Peretz, Tzipi Livni, and Eyal Ben-Reuven, are heard discussing the war and the capture of Eldad Regev and Ehud Goldwasser.

In addition, the documentary included an interview with Tomer Weinberg who was lucky to escape the tank under Hizbullah attack. Weinberg is heard on the documentary describing at length the circumstances surrounding the attack.

The moment the firing started I realized that it was coming from Hizbullah. I opened the door of the tank, I didn’t look at my friends who were sitting on the back seats and I fled.” A very smart Jew soldier who believes that it’s better to live as a coward than die defending fellow soldiers.

In the documentary one of the Hizbullah narrators said:

We interviewed the soldier who was injured and who managed to escape but his capture was not part of the operational order which is why we didn’t take him.

The daring operation has resulted in severe embarrassment for the former Israeli officials, who are largely considered responsible for the strategic miscalculations that ultimately led to Hezbollah victory following the 33-day war in Summer 2006.

This is not the first time Hizbullah supporters duped Israeli officials. In 2000 Israeli Col. Elhanan Tannenbaum, who held an important position in the Israeli occupation’s Northern Command, was lured to Lebanon by a Palestinian agent of Hizbullah for the purpose of conducting a drug deal. He was released later as part of a prisoner exchange that resulted in the release of 435 Palestinian and Lebanese civilians held in Israeli jails.

The Islamic Resistance also has a strong reputation for its media prowess. During the 2006 Israeli invasion, Hizbullah-owned television station Al-Manar broadcast daily clips in Hebrew and Arabic that publicized its achievements throughout the conflict while Israeli forces continually bombed the station’s facilities in contravention of international law. In spite of the bombings, the station, known as the Station of the Resistance – continued its broadcasts, largely uninterrupted.

’Israeli’ Livni Summonsed by UK Police over War Crimes

Local Editor

“Israeli” politician Tzipi Livni was summoned by UK police for questioning over war crimes while in London last week, “Israeli” officials have said.

israeli tzipi livni


According to the information, Livni received a letter from the police on Thursday but the summons was cancelled after talks between “Israel” and the UK.

The case relates to the 2008-9 “Israeli” aggression against Gaza, when Livni was foreign minister and deputy PM.

UK police claimed there was no ongoing war crimes investigation.

Correspondents say pro-Palestinian activists have filed a series of complaints against “Israeli” officials, including Livni, in recent years.

An arrest warrant for Livni was issued in the UK in 2009.

In 2011, UK law was changed to make it more difficult to obtain arrest warrants for “Israeli” public politicians and military figures visiting in an official capacity.

According to Haaretz, the questioning was to have been about war crimes and violations of the Geneva Conventions during the 2008-9 “Israeli” aggression against the besieged Gaza strip.

The “Israeli” apartheid entity made urgent diplomatic contacts, which resulted in Livni being given diplomatic immunity and declining the invitation to questioning.

Is Tzipi Livni Smelly?

Tzipi Livni, a former Israeli minister as well as a war criminal, spoke at Harvard Law School last week. During the Q&A session, a student got up and asked Livni ‘how is it that you are so smelly?’ Some Jews were offended and interpreted the comments as being anti-Semitic.

The student, a third-year male law student who is president of a pro-Palestine group, has since apologised. The student claims not to have known that attributing smelliness to Jews is a well established anti-Semitic stereotype.

However, the incident raises a few crucial questions. The rebellious student directed his question to Tzipi Livni. He didn’t refer to the Israeli politician ‘as a Jew’ or claimed that Jews are smelly in general. “My question is for Tzipi Livni,”  the student asked, “how is it that you are so smelly?”  One may wonder why is it that when a gentile questions the distinctive odour of one particular Jewish person, many other Jews feel accused of being collectively smelly?  On a further thought, how is it that many Jews care so much about a young student who doesn’t approves of Tzipi Livni’s smell, yet turn a blind eye to Israeli crimes and Jewish Lobby war mongering that reflects badly on Jewish people as a collective?

P.S We have learned from the Israeli press that Mrs Livni decided to take a shower. Apparently,  she isn’t smelly for the moment. JSG (Jews Smell Great) welcomed Livni’s hygienic manoeuvre..

Livni Hails Blacklisting Hezbollah, Urges Alliance with Gulf States

Local Editor

Israeli former Foreign Minister, Tsipi Livni, hailed Arab League decision to blacklist Hezbollah as a ‘terror group’, calling to conclude alliance between the Zionist entity and some Arab states.

“AL decision to adopt the Gulf Cooperation Council is rightful and represents a positive shift,” Israeli daily, Maariv quoted Livni as saying.Livni and Ahmed Ahu al-Ghait

Livni meanwhile, called for concluding an alliance between Israel and “moderate Muslim countries” including Gulf states and some Arab countries which blacklisted Hezbollah, the Israeli paper said.

On the other hand, the Israeli politician called for preventing Hezbollah from taking part in the parliamentary elections in Lebanon, according to Maariv.

“Livni also urged not to make distinction between Hezbollah and ISIL,” the daily added referring to the Takfiri group operating in Iraq and Syria (so-called Islamic State in Iraq and Levant).

Earlier on Friday, Arab League labeled Hezbollah as a ‘terror group’, echoing a similar decision by the GCC.

Israelis Welcome GCC Statement on Hezbollah: Reflects Rapprochement with Saudis

Local Editor

Zionist mediaAs soon as the Gulf Cooperation Council blacklisted the Lebanese party of Resistance – Hezbollah – on Wednesday, Zionist mass media welcomed the resolution, considering it “critical and serious,” reflecting a great relief among Israelis who have been seeking to fight Hezbollah from the Arab gate.

Former Zionist foreign minister Tzipi Livni hailed the GCC resolution as “an important step, while Zionist daily Maariv stated that “blacklisting Hezbollah is an achievement that serves Israel.”

Zionist presenter: Channel 1Moreover, the entity’s mass media correlated the GCC resolution against Hezbollah with “the ongoing coordination between Saudi Arabia Israel,” which has recently emerged to public through exchanging visits between both parties.

“Arab world is approaching closer to Israel’s stances, which has been revealed through the Saudi delegations’ visit to Israel, as well as when Saudi Arabia decided to blacklist Hezbollah as a terrorist organization,” the presenter of Tonight at Six talk show for Zionist Channel 1 said.

“It is very important and dramatic development,” he added.

Zionist channel 1For his part, Yoval King, an expert of Arab affairs, said that “it is an important resolution,” recalling that it is not the first time that Gulf states blacklist Hezbollah as a terrorist group.

“They had labeled him as ‘militia’, and announced that violence and provocations he is carrying out in Syria, Yemen and Iraq contradicts with the moral and humanitarian values,” King said.

The Saudi-Zionist coordination witnessed a major shift on the Syrian arena in the face of axis of Resistance, as Zionist sources revealed discussions took place between the armed groups operating in Syria on one hand, and Riyadh and Tel Aviv on the other, about the Syrian developments following the ongoing truce.

Zionist media“Syrian opposition groups, funded by Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Israel are meeting with their sponsors and discussing with them whether they can make gains in the meantime,” Shmerit Maeir, a Zionist analyst of Arab affairs, said during an interview on the Jewish Channel 2.

“Israel needs a key chair on this table whether through the American players or others, because the bases will now determine whether Hezbollah is allowed to do what the ISIL and Al-Nusra Front are banned from doing. If this really is to happen, we will be facing a major catastrophe,” Maeir stressed.

The Zionist position was symmetrical to the Saudi’s, as it doesn’t rule out the possibility of communicating with the armed groups, like Al-Nusra Front and ISIL in order to coordinate for later steps in Syria.

The GCC, which has been committing a genocide in Yemen since March 2015, held a meeting on Monday during which it blacklisted all Hezbollah affiliated institutions.

TALES OF LA KOSHER NOSTRA – LIVNI vs. BIBI

Posted by Sabba on April 22, 2015

Don Bibi liquid flame

Ed-note (Sabba) – What Livni is basically saying is that Bibi has removed all the make up the jewish state was wearing to camouflage itself among the civilized world, among the Brotherhood of Mankind. To a certain degree, we must ”thank” him for his relentless efforts to show the world the real face of the jewish state, the jewish mind, the jewish project. We must “thank” him for allowing more and more people to see that indeed, there is ‘no beauty in the beast’. There is none, there never was, there never will be.

YNET:

“MK Tzipi Livni said Saturday that “the difference between us (the Zionist Union) and Netanyahu is that he does not manage negotiations with the West and does not demand requirements. We have the ability to create ties with the moderate states. I have had a relationship with these countries for all of these years. Obama invited all of the heads of states in the region, and Israel should be there. And it is not there,” said Livni while speaking at a cultural event in north Tel Aviv.

Regarding the election results, Livni said: “More than the mistakes we made, Netanyahu managed to create the false impression, in an ugly way, and the untrue statement that we would sell Israel to the enemy. He managed to get 580 thousand people to go and vote.”

Why I’m relieved that Netanyahu won

 

king_bibi_02

Netanyahu’s win will make it harder than ever for Israelis to use their fake “peace process” to camouflage their atrocities. Had the Zionist Union won, the Palestinians would have been dragged back a decade into fruitless Oslo-style “negotiations” that would have served as a cover for continued subjugation and colonization. Such “negotiations” have provided the principal excuse for the “international community” to avoid holding Israel even minimally accountable for its crimes. The refrain from gutless officials is always some version of “Yes, isn’t it terrible what’s going on, but there’s a peace process and we support the peace process.” The one positive outcome of Israel’s election is that path seems to be closed.

The Electronic Intifada

With virtually all the votes counted, Likud has 30 seats, the Zionist Union has 24 and the Joint List of predominantly Arab parties is in third place with 14.

It seems all but certain that Netanyahu will retain his post as Israel’s prime minister and head another fanatically right-wing government.

TRUTH IN LABELING

Netanyahu is no worse than his rivals. Livni, a fugitive war crimes suspect, was one of the proud and unrepentant architects of Israel’s massacre in Gaza in 2008-2009, which no doubt served as Netanyahu’s model.

Livni’s partner Herzog has faulted Netanyahu for not attacking Gaza viciously enough.

Netanyahu’s ugly election-day incitement that the “Arabs are advancing on the ballot boxes” revealed once again his true feelings that Palestinian citizens of Israel are not legitimate citizens deserving full rights. But Tzipi Livni has frequently expressed the same view.

A recent interactive feature published by The New York Times shows that Israeli settlement construction in the occupied West Bank (excluding occupied Jerusalem) was often far higher under the supposed peace-seeking governments of Ehud Barak and Ehud Olmert.

But what has distinguished Netanyahu is that he strips away the opportunities for the so-called “international community” to hide its complicity with Israel’s ugly crimes behind a charade of a “peace process.”

Moreover, Netanyahu’s open alliance with the most racist, white supremacist, Islamophobic and bigoted elements of the North American and European right – his speech to Congress earlier this month was a manifestation of this – strip away all masks. Israel can no longer practice apartheid at home while falsely presenting itself as a beacon of liberalism abroad.

In short, Netanyahu’s re-election is like the “Nutrition Facts” label on a box of junk food: it tells you about the toxic ingredients inside.

Netanyahu’s clear declaration days before the vote that he will not allow a Palestinian state was simply an affirmation of the real policy of every Israeli government since 1967, to which Herzog and Livni would have adhered.

Herzog and Livni would not have permitted a Palestinian state. Rather, they would have tried to draw Palestinians back into fake “negotiations” over what would at most be a ghetto-like bantustan designed to legitimize Israel’s theft of vast tracts of land, its annexation of Jerusalem, and its abrogation of the rights of Palestinian refugees. (Ben White’s analysis of this horrifying plan for permanent apartheid is a must read.)

Netanyahu and Herzog have both vowed to continue building settlements on stolen Palestinian land. But Herzog would have hidden this expansionist policy behind one of the cosmetic and fraudulent “freezes” during which colonization continues unabated.

Had the Zionist Union won, the Palestinians would have been dragged back into fruitless Oslo-style “negotiations” that would have served as a cover for their continued subjugation and colonization.

Such “negotiations” have provided the principal excuse for the “international community” to avoid holding Israel even minimally accountable for its crimes. The refrain from gutless officials is always some version of “Yes, isn’t it terrible what’s going on, but there’s a peace process and we support the peace process.”

The one positive outcome of Israel’s election is that path seems to be closed.

BDS

The Israeli Jewish public’s choice to re-elect Netanyahu should make it clear to people around the world that Israel does not seek peace or justice. Israel will continue to oppress and ethnically cleanse Palestinians until it is stopped.

The message we should take away is simple: the proper treatment for a polity committed to occupation, apartheid and ethno-racial supremacy is to isolate it until it recognizes that it must abandon those commitments.

Palestinians have asked the world to do that through boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS). Netanyahu makes the case a little easier, so it’s time to step it up.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

[1] A Jew responded to the above post:

You are ignoring the fact that most Israelis fear what will happen if the Palestinians achieve a state in the West Bank. It is a simple, rational, act of self-preservation. Not many human beings are willing to do the right thing when they believe it will endanger themselves, their families, and their way of life. By ignoring this factor, you make it look like most Israelis take pleasure in the status quo, rather than them simply believing it’s the best of a bunch of bad options.

A reader’s response:

White South Africans tried to justify their behavior the same way. It didn’t work then, and it won’t work for Israelis now. You omit the fact that Israel is the occupier and the aggressor. You also ignore Gaza.

 If you call the occupation and extermination of the Palestinians a “simple, rational, act of self-preservation,” then there is something terribly wrong with you. It’s like “reasoning” that you have to kill all the bears when you set up camp in bear country, because one bear might raid your refrigerator.

[2] I too am relieved. If Netanyahu had lost, then many people might have had the false illusion that something was going to change. At least with Netanyahu, we will see things for what they are. Netanyahu’s declared opposition to a Palestinian state makes it crystal clear to the whole world who the real obstacle to peace is. It puts pressure on the PA to abandon its failed collaborationist policies. It strengthens the BDS movement. It exposes the complicity of the Arab regimes. And it makes the one-state solution the only viable option to pursue. Thanks to all the Israelis who voted Netanyahu in again. You made our day!

[3] If Netanyahu had lost, the global community may have taken a wait-and-see approach to the Israeli political scene, thereby sapping momentum from BDS activism. Now that we see that Zionist extremism is back at the helm, there can be no denying that peace is a dried out carcass.

Report: Senate panel probing whether Obama administration funded anti-Netanyahu campaign

netanyahuobama

Fox News reports that a bipartisan probe is looking into State Department funding of OneVoice Movement and its subsidiary V15

ed note–Goddamn every one of these traitorous hypocrites to Lucifer’s hell where they belong. Where is their ‘probe’ into Israel’s attack on the USS LIBERTY that killed 34 American servicemen and brought the world to within 3 minutes of nuclear war with the USSR? Where is their ‘probe’ of Israel’s role in the assassination JFK, the bombing of the Federal building in Oklahoma City, the bombings of the World Trade Towers in 93, 9/11, the anthrax attacks, Boston Marathon, etc?

WHERE IS THEIR PROBE OF AIPAC INFLUENCING AMERICAN ELECTIONS IN FLAGRANT VIOLATION OF THE FARC ACT???

If such a fund existed whereby people could donate $ to purchase coal that would be used to fuel the fires in hell that these bastards will inevitably be calling home after they have left this earthly paradise, I would give every damned dime I had.

Haaretz

Fox News reported on Saturday that a bipartisan probe is being launched by a U.S. Senate Investigatory committee, designed to look into the funding of a not-for-profit group that has been trying to oust Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

One source told Foxnews.com that the State Department apparently gave the group taxpayer-funded grants.

On Friday, Netanyahu said that “left-wing and media elements in Israel and abroad have conspired to bring [Zionist Union leaders Isaac Herzog and Tzipi Livni] to power illegitimately, by means of slander at home and unprecedented money from abroad.” In a Facebook post, the prime minister added that “left-wing elements in Israel and abroad who are streaming tens of millions of dollars to NGOs running an ‘Anyone but Bibi’ campaign in its various guises.”

The Senate investigatory subcommittee has subpoena powers, but no comments on the investigation were available. One source disclosed that the probe was looking at the OneVoice Movement, a group in Washington which has received $350,000 from the State Department. Until recently the group was headed by a veteran diplomat from the Clinton years.

A subsidiary of OneVoice is the Israeli-based V15, which is claimed by Fox News to be guided by administration officials. V15 is advocating a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and is thus committed to removing Netanyahu.

No direct link between Obama and such a campaign has been established, and the State Department announced that funding for the group stopped in November, before the elections were called. However, OneVoice did link up with V15 in January. Jeremy Bird, Obama’s previous campaign director, arrived in Israel to help direct V15, which was trying to reach a million households in an effort to remove Netanyahu. OneVoice is prohibited from directly targeting Netanyahu, but its Israeli partner V15 can carry out the campaign.

State Department documents show that funding was also directed to Palestinian activists and to a resumption of peace talks. Despite OneVoice’s backing of V15, funds were not used for election campaign activities, State Department officials there claim.

Rage Against Netanyahu

Israelis most often are as out-of-touch with reality as Americans – sleepwalking through their daily lives instead of becoming activist to improve them.
Saturday night was different – the exception proving the rule. Tens of thousands of Israelis rallied against Netanyahu’s appalling leadership in Tel Aviv’s Rabin Square under the banner “Israel Wants Change.”
The New York Times and Washington Post ignored it. The Wall Street Journal published a woefully short three-paragraph AP report.
WaPo apparently thought a Palestinian injuring five Israelis was more important than a major anti-Netanyahu mass protest.
A good idea was ruined by choosing the wrong keynote speaker – former Mossad chief Meir Dagan. He knowingly lied saying:
“No one denies that Iran’s nuclear program is a threat, but going to war with the US is not the way to stop it.”
“Israel is a country surrounded by enemies…”
Fact: Dagan’s own Mossad denies an Iranian threat. It called its nuclear program legitimate with no military component.
Fact: Israel is nuclear armed and dangerous. It has hundreds of nuclear weapons and long-range delivery system capability.
Fact: It warns it’ll use every weapon in its arsenal if threatened. It’ll risk incinerating millions.
Fact: Israel’s only enemies are ones it invents. It faced no external threat since the 1973 Yom Kippur war – the only one it nearly lost.
Dagan continued saying “I am afraid of our leadership. I am afraid of a loss of determination, of a loss of personal example.”
“I am afraid of hesitancy and stalemate, and I am afraid above all of the crisis of leadership, a leadership crisis that is the most severe ever here.”
“Benjamin Netanyahu has served as prime minister for six years straight. Six years in which he has not led a single genuine process of change to the face of the region or the creation of a better future.”
“On his watch, Israel conducted the longest (military) campaign since the War of Independence.” Dagan pointedly asked Netanyahu:
“Why should you be responsible for our fate if you are so afraid to take responsibility?”
“I am not a politician and not a public figure, and I came here this evening without personal aspirations, not looking for a position and without a grudge or bitterness.”
“We deserve leadership that will set new priorities. It has long not been a question of left wing and right wing. It’s a question of a path, a vision, a different horizon.”
“(W)e are at a critical period for our future and security.” Netanyahu’s agenda is “destructive…for the future and security of Israel…(T)here is a danger…and that is why I (came) to speak.”
Fact: Dagan was a former high-level Israeli official. He very much has an agenda. He failed to explain it – or what new priorities he wants set.
His job as Mossad chief was working for Israeli regional dominance – including assassinating anyone challenging it, staging false flags and committing other crimes too serious to ignore.
He represents everything ordinary people everywhere should reject. Why rally organizers invited him to speak they’ll have to explain.
Michal Kesten-Keidar’s husband, Dolev, was killed in last summer’s Gaza war. Her comments were important to hear.
“How many women like me will lose their (loved ones) until we reach (a peace) agreement,” she asked?
“An entire election campaign has gone by without remembering the blood that was shed over the summer.”
“But last summer, I lost the love of my life during the war, and I came here to request of you, when you go to cast your ballots, to vote for who will prevent the next war, for who is prepared to do everything possible to prevent more deaths.”
“Mr. Prime Minister, it’s impossible to speak all the time about Iran and to turn a blind eye to the bloody conflict with the Palestinians which costs us so much blood.”
Keidar is a Women Wage Peace (WWP) activist. A previous article discussed the group’s mission to end decades of Israeli/Palestinian conflict. It hopes to achieve a durable, sustainable equitable peace.
Keidar and other WWP activists believe no one else should die because rogue politicians choose war over peace.
They want Israel governed by responsible politicians. They want decades of conflict ended once and for all.
Rally organizers and other speakers want “normal and sane” Israeli life. They want Israel at peace with all its neighbors.
“If someone doesn’t care if there are wars, why should he care about the cost of living,” asked Keidar?
“I do not accept the claim that there is no one to vote for so don’t vote, or the claim that the Israeli public is fated to live with war.”
“The leadership has responsibility to those combat soldiers and a responsibility to prevent the killing.”
Netanyahu’s Likud-led regime lied about Saturday’s rally. A statement claimed it’s “part of a campaign orchestrated by the left (and) funded by millions from abroad.”
“The aim is to change the nationalist Likud government headed by Netanyahu with a left wing government headed by (Tzipi) Livni and (Isaac) Herzog which will be supported by the Arab parties.”
It added ludicrous comments about Israelis knowing only Netanyahu can stop Iran’s (nonexistent) nuclear threat and establishment of a West Bank “terror state.”
Saturday’s rally was 10 days before March 17 general elections. Netanyahu is in a close race to remain prime minister.
New poll numbers show it’s too close to call. Netanyahu’s Likud and Herzog’s Zionist Union are virtually even in public support..
Netanyahu’s congressional rant did nothing to boost his chances. As of Friday, around one-fifth of Israeli voters remain undecided.
Next Saturday, March 14, a pro-Netanyahu rally is planned. It remains to be seen how well attended.
The evening after his March 3 congressional rant, thousands protested in New York outside Israel’s midtown Manhattan consulate.
The US/Canadian Central Rabbinical Congress organized the event. Signs and banners read:
“Bibi – don’t drag American Jewry into your provocative policies.”
” Bibi Netanyahu does not speak for us.”
“We are ably represented. We don’t need a Bibi-sitter.”
Rabbi David Neiderman addressed rally participants saying “(w)hen Netanyahu professes to speak on our behalf, we have to speak out and say this is not the case.”
“(S)top speaking on our behalf and directing us what to do,” he added. “(N)o foreign government can represent us or speak on our behalf.”
Other speakers were harsher – calling Netanyahu “Haman (the book of Esther’s main antagonist)” and “Amalek (the book of Exodus nation attacking Israelites fleeing Egypt).”
They accused Netanyahu of stoking anti-Semitism. One speaker said he risked world Jewry’s well-being for his own political self-interest.
Another said “(w)e are here to disassociate ourselves from the dangerous statements” he made – “put(ting) Jews in danger.”
Social injustice is another major issues for most Israelis. Protest tents are erected on Tel Aviv’s Rothschild Blvd. A sign read:
“We’re coming out of the closet and moving into national housing” – referencing increasingly unaffordable housing costs for millions of Israelis.
Another sign read ” ‘Life itself’ is dying on the street.” Housing, employment, healthcare and education are major electoral issues.
Rothschild Blvd. activism reminds Israelis that electoral bombast has nothing to do with their daily struggle to get by.
Israel and America are the developed world’s most unequal countries.
Shay Cohen’s Facebook comment reflects how millions of Israelis feel, saying:
“So here I am, suddenly 40-years-old. I have a wonderful family, lots of good in my life, but everything is still too expensive, and buying an apartment in the area we live in seems like a faraway dream.”
“We all are truly in need of a revolution in our government’s social and economic policy.”
“(We need to) shout and remind everyone who we are and what we demand.”
Cohen co-founded Koach l’Ovdim (Democratic Workers Organization). He and others are involved in struggling for long denied social justice – basic needs increasingly unaddressed, notably unaffordable housing.
Millions of Israelis “work hard day and night, but can’t hold their heads up high,” he said.
People need to start protesting, he stressed. The best time is pre-election. Change takes time.
It begins by electing responsible officials. Israelis are hamstrung like Americans. Their choices are largely between death by hanging or firing squad.
Both nations need revolutionary change – a total makeover. Scattered reforms won’t work.
Governance in both countries is too corrupted to fix. Imperial madness they represent may kill us all.
Sweeping change is needed more than ever before. Humanity’s fate hangs in the balance.

The Guardian Proclaims The President of Israel as a Hero of

January 01, 2015  /  Gilad Atzmon

By Gilad Atzmon

Jonathan Freedland, The Guardian’s prime Hasbara mouthpiece, praised Israeli President Reuven ‘Ruvi’ Rivlin yesterday. Freedland wrote that that in spite of being a  “lifelong member of Israel’s Likud party, and on the right of that rightwing bloc… ever since his elevation to Israel’s largely ceremonial presidency in June he (President Rivlin) has acted as something like his country’s conscience.”

Let’s examine how Freedland justifies his dubious choice for 2014’s hero.

In November the Israeli cabinet backed a Jewish state bill that would enshrine discrimination against Israel’s 1.7 million Arab citizens, denying them the full rights of citizenship accorded to Jews. Liberals and leftists denounced the bill, but, according to Freedland, “ the most potent attack came from the presidential mansion.” Freedland  doesn’t tell the entire truth. The Israeli ‘liberals’ (such as war criminal Tzipi Livini) and the hawk President who opposed the bill, didn’t deny that Israel is a Jewish State, instead they argued that Israel is the Jewish State anyway and the National Bill didn’t add any new powers.

Though President Rivlin spoke in favour of civil rights, his primary argument was with the true meaning of the new bill – it exposed the deep intrinsic discrepancy between ‘Jewishness’ and ‘democracy’.  Speaking against the bill, Rivlin wondered,  “Does this proposal (The National Bill) not in fact encourage us to seek contradiction between the Jewish and democratic characteristics of the state?” Yes it does.

While Netanyhau and his cabinet are willing to admit the truth that the Jewish State is, by its nature, exclusivist; the Jewish Left, The Guardian, Freedland and President Rivlin prefer to keep the truth deeply hidden or at least obscured.   Freedland and Rivlin may agree with each other that lying for the cause is kosher.

Freedland also seems to be overwhelmingly awed by a cheesy Israeli propaganda video made for Rosh Hashana. In the video the 75-year-old Israeli president sat alongside an 11-year-old Palestinian boy who had been the victim of bullying. The two held up a series of cards bearing slogans calling for mutual respect and dignity. But Rivlin and Freedland know very well that in the Jewish so called ‘democracy’ with and without the National Bill, this young Palestinian boy will never be president in the Jewish State, nor could he be a minister. This young boy is destined to face constant abuse that is intended to make him leave Israel to find a better life somewhere else.

As far as I am concerned, The Guardian of Judea is far from being 2014’s Hero

Zionist Entity’s Labor Announces Election Pact with Centrist Livni

Local Editor

Israeli opposition Labor party leader Isaac Hertzog and centrist former justice minister Tzipi Livni on Wednesday announced an alliance to contest snap general election in March.

“When we receive the mandate… I shall serve as prime minister for the first two years and Tzipi Livni will serve as prime minister for the second half” of the four-year term, Hertzog said at a televised news conference.

Isaac Hertzog and Tzipi Livni

“Today the Zionist centre has risen against the parties of the extreme right,” said Livni, formerly Israel’s chief “peace” negotiator with the Palestinians, who was fired from government last week by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who accused her of working against his right-leaning coalition from within.

She began her political career in Likud before following the late Ariel Sharon when he founded the Kadima party, then setting up her own HaTnuah before the last election.

She said that today’s Likud has been taken over by the far-right.

“The extremists… are turning our country into an isolated state, closed and alienated from its own citizens.”

“I am here to produce the force-multiplier that will replace the government of Israel,” she said.

Polls published on Tuesday said an alliance between Labor and Livni’s HaTnuah party could nudge Netanyahu’s Likud from power.

A survey by parliament TV, published by Maariv newspaper, said that a partnership could win 23 seats in the 120-member Knesset, while Likud was projected to win 21.

Another poll by news website Globes put the figure at 24 for Labour-HaTnuah and 23 for Netanyahu’s party.

The Palestinians Have Managed to Topple Another Israeli Government

December 02, 2014  /  Gilad Atzmon

By Gilad Atzmon

Occasionally Israeli political and military leadership fail to survive Israeli wars. PM Golda Meir and her Chief Of Staff (David “Dado” Elazar) were sent home after the 1973 blunder (Yom Kippur war). PM Menachem Begin lost his sanity after the first Lebanon war (1982). Defense Minister Amir Peretz and his Chief Of Staff’ Dan Halutz’ were treated harshly by the Israeli media following the 2006 defeat in Lebanon. PM Benjamin Netanyahu is now paying a price for the recent Israeli disaster in Gaza and the Palestinian uprising that followed.

Strong nations tend to unite behind their leaders in times of crisis. The Israelis are spoiled. They prefer to turn against their leaders in times of conflict and not because they crave peace. Quite the opposite, they want to see a conclusive victory; buckets of Arab blood. Bibi didn’t provide the goods and in the eyes of many Israeli patriots he was a softy.

Israel’s didn’t perform well in the last round of violence. The IDF didn’t achieve a single military objective. After a few days, its forces withdrew, humiliated and exhausted. The Israeli military admitted that it lacked an answer to Palestinian ballistics, tunnels and fierceness. In addition, the conflict in Gaza spilled over to the West Bank and to Israeli cities. Throughout, Netanyahu’s cabinet reacted slowly. It seemed confused by events. Soon Israelis were openly admitting that the future of the Jewish State was gloomier than ever.

The Israeli political establishment was quick to follow – with a total radicalization. The hawks wanted the state to admit that it is a ‘Jewish home’ instead of a ‘Jewish democracy’ (a term that in itself, provides a contradiction).

The centrists and the Israeli Left insisted that Israel sustain the ‘democratic’ lie. It sounds good and the Goyim buy it they argued. 

Earlier today, PM Netanyahu announced new elections after firing two key ministers in his government – Yesh Atid leader Finance Minister Yair Lapid and Hatnua leader Justice Minister Tzipi Livni.

Livni and Lapid opposed Israel’s National Bill and provided Netanyahu a golden opportunity to reinstate his status as a devoted Jewish patriotic and a nationalist voice. I guess that Netanyahu will survive this political round.

But here is a small yet significant piece of the story.  Seven month ago it was Netanyahu who mounted pressure on the PA, the Hamas and the Palestinian population in an effort to break up the Palestinian unity government. After six month of violence, a war in Gaza and a 3rd Intifada in the making, the Palestinians seem more united than ever, and Netanyahu’s Government is breaking apart.

Clintons, Monica, Adultery and “strange Jewish laws”

Rehmat

On October 14, 2014 Professor Susannah Haschel (Jewish Studies, Dartmouth College) again defended Bill Clinton-Monica Lewinsky sex affair based on Jewish law at The Jewish Week.

One of 10,000 documents released from the Clinton Presidential Library on Friday last week, one belongs to Haschel, then senior aide to Sen. HillaryClinton who submitted to the White House: a Talmudic interpretation proving president Bill Clinton was not guilty of adultery.

From the perspective of Jewish history, we have to ask how can Jews condemn President Clinton’s behavior as immoral, when we exalt King David? King David had Batsheva’s husband, Uriah, murdered. While David was condemned and punished, he was never thrown off the throne of Israel. On the contrary, he is exalted in our Jewish memory as the unifier of Israel,” Haschel wrote in 1999.

According to classical Jewish law, President Clinton did not commit adultery; adultery is defined as a married man having intercourse with a married woman, and Monica Lewinsky is single. At worst, President Clinton is guilty of the common sin of onanism (masturbation), a sin that probably afflicts the consciences of most Jewish men at one time or another,” said the Jan. 27, 1999, e­mail that ended up with White House adviser and political fixer Sidney Blumenthal (father of the ‘self-hating’ US journalist Max Blumenthal).

Haschel’s interpretation of Jewish law, later helped several American lawmakers, such as, Sen. John Ensign of Nevada who confessed to an extramarital affair with a female campaign staffer married to one of his top Senate staffers.

Haschel also advised Clintons’ critics that instead of character assassination of Hillary Clinton who in August told a Jewish gathering that “if I were prime minister of Israel, my policy against Hamas, Iran and Syria wouldn’t be different than Netanyahu” – but concentrate on the bloodshed going on in the Middle East and Ukraine. Why? ” Because Clintons’ just had a grandson, who happened to be Jewish from father’s side.

Last week Rabbi David Wolpe accused King David of committing genocide of Palestinians in order to whitewash Israel’s recent genocide in Gaza.

In 2010, Israeli Rabbi Ari Schvat blessed Mossad female agents having sex (Honey-pot) with foreign agents. He supported his fatwa by claiming that Queen Esther had sex with Persian King Ahasuerus in 500 BC in order to save the Persian Jewish community. I suppose, French Jewish president Hollande must be incarnation of Esther as the “First Lady” of France is not married to Hollande. She is just “sex partner” with two kids from her previous marriage.

The White House “Honey-pot” Monica Lewinsky was used by Israeli Mossad to blackmail then president Bill Clinton to stop FBI investigation of Israeli espionage network MEGA lead by Danny Yatom, Mossad inspector-general, according to Gordon Thomas’ book: ‘Gideon’s Spies – The Secret History of Mossad’.

Lewinsky testified under oath that after a session of heavy patting and oral sex in the White House, Clinton told her that a foreign embassy was tapping the two phone lines in her Washington DC apartment. Read more on this story here.

If someone think that’s the end of the adultery in Jewish religion, he needs to look at Adam Kirsch’s article at the Jewish Tablet magazine (October 14, 2014).

Following are some of the kosher things I learned.

1. A Jew can marry daughter of his own brother, his niece. But, if he dies, his brother (father-in-law) is not allowed to have “obligatory marriage” the widow, his own daughter. Islamic traditions allow a Muslim to marry daughter of his cousin.

2. A Jew is forbidden to have sex with his brother’s wife – but if she became widow without bearing a child, the surviving brother is “obligated” to have sex with his sister-in-law in order to provide his deceased brother with a posthumous heir. Kirsch says the practice is commanded in Deuteronomy 25:5. This totally forbidden under Islamic Shari’ah.

Under such ‘modern goodies’, who can blame British Jew -Zionist peer, Lord Greville Ewan Janner, 86, for sexually abusing kids from care homes?

Interestingly, Hillary Clinton in her memoir just published, has acknowledged that ISIS was given birth by the US government and the French Zionist Jew “philosopher” and Muslim hater Bernard-Henri Levy, a French-Israel dual citizen, was the “mastermind” behind the ISIS military success.

SYRIAN ARMY LIBERATES AL-DUKHAANIYYA; ‘AYN TURMA TOTTERING; ARAB TRAITORS MEET WITH ZIONIST MOSSAD PROSTITUTE LIVNI

Ziad Fadel

الجيش السوري يسيطر على الحدث وحوارين ومهين في حمص

DAMASCUS:

Al-Dukhkhaaniyya:  With only a few hours left before the fall of Waadi ‘Ayn Turma, it made total sense that the SAA would smash into Al-Dukhkhaaniyya to exterminate the remaining vermin inside this town.  The move was sudden with brand new T-82 front-line battle tanks leading the charge.  The rodents had little ammunition left.  Even their RPGs bounced off the new armor with nary a “ping”.  Monzer writes that 105 carcasses were counted with 61 having surrendered in different states of ill health.  Some were able to escape apparently with no particular destination awaiting them.  The fact is, there is nowhere to go any more.

 

syrian army

 

Waadi ‘Ayn Turma:  The Syrian Army continues its non-stop assaults on tunnels, trenches and fortifications with new technology developed both domestically and in other countries like Iran and Russia.  The rats know they have no chance,  an eventuality which is inescapable.  Rat communications intercepted regularly by Syrian security services and counter-espionage units disclose a fatalistic mood among the Nusra rats who now know they have no deus ex machina to pluck them out of the certain Hell to which they are headed.  As of now, with all fortifications either breached or compromised, the SAA is expected to lunge forward with the last sweeping maneuver that will put to death the poisonous, plague-carrying filth infesting this area.  Dayr Al-‘Asaafeer, is now a fantasy as all supply routes and escape arteries are closed.  For all you terrorism supporters out there, those who are praying for the miserable souls of these vultures, abandon your hopes, for their end is so near the smell of their rotting corpses is starting to permeate my computer.

QUNAYTRA:  This is now the front the Zionists have placed their stinking bets.  Not satisfied with having suffered the Nazi siege of the Warsaw Ghetto, the same offspring of those ghetto rats are now planning death and destruction for others.  But, a big surprise awaits the Zionist Apartheid State.  It will come to them in a maelstrom of missiles and tens of thousands of fighters trained to penetrate their borders to take apart their counterfeit Kingdom of Bigotry.

 

Al-Ba’ath City:  Named for our party.  The FSA vultures thought it would be so “cool” to occupy a city named for the political movement that built Syria into the powerhouse it is today.  It was the same party which gave farmers and all downtrodden citizens the right to own land without having to lick the boots of mostly Turk feudal landowning families.  But, the attack flopped and 14 dead vermin now are feeding the hungry volcanic soil of the Jawlaan.  Wounded buzzards were spirited off to hospital in Occupied Palestine at Nahariyyaa where they were given TLC by the professional Zionist sluts whose mothers used to service the stinking British authorities in Mandate Palestine.

livni

It is absolutely true. Tzipi Livni, the Polish Zionist and Mossad handy-woman, now playing the role of Justice Minister, was invited to meet with a pack of “Ayraab luminaries” in New York City.  The Arabs were there for the U.N. General Assembly event.  Livni was there at the invitation of America’s favorite couple, Sonny and Cher of the Catskills, Bill and Hillary Clinton.  After the dinner with the Clintons, Livni found herself eating again with the individuals listed below.  Ms Livni was provided with a vomitorium in order to share the additional victuals:

Kuwaiti Foreign Minister:  Khaaled Al-Sabaah Al-Sabaah Al-Sabaah Al-Sabaah Al-Sabaah

Saudi Heir Apparent and brother of Prince SputterTurkey Al-Faysal

“Scarab League Secretary”:  Nabil “the Zionist” Al-‘Arabi

Egyptian Foreign MinisterSaamih Shukri

Jordanteezian Foreign MinisterNaasser Jooda

United Ayraab Emirates Foreign Minister:  ‘Abdullah bin Zaayed bin Zaayed bin Zaayed bin Zaayed

 

Among the 20 people invited to this supposedly “secret” dinner party were:

Canadian Foreign Minister:  John Beard

Former U.N. Delegate for the ME: Terry Larson

 

Ms. Livni, who was born to a Polish father from Warsaw and a mother named Sarah Rosenberg, is married to Naftali Spitzer, a cousin of humiliated  .  She has 2 children from him.  However, in the spirit of pioneering sociological miscegenation,  it was disclosed last year that she had been sleeping with Palesteezian luminary, humbug and casino maven, Saa’eb ‘Urayqaat.   Mr. Erekat will go down in history for all the accomplishments he has managed for the Palestinian people which will include sleeping with Mossad prostitute, Livni.      

 

 Erekat sizes up Playmate of the Month, Tzipi “Zippy” Livni (nee Liverwurst).  “Mmmm, those Jews are very well trained.”

LIVING UNDER JEWISH OCCUPATION (MUST WATCH)

SUNDAY, JULY 6, 2014 AT 8:30AM GILAD ATZMON

Israel’s first reaction was that video is edited and misleading. Following the publication of the video worldwide, Justice Minister Tzipi Livni said that the images indicate on a grave incident that is not indicative of Israel’s law enforcement policy. I agree with Livni, the video actually reveals the true nature of Jewish occupation -tt is sadistic on a Biblical scale.

West Funds Insurgencies

Drug trafficker, killer, mercenary terrorist, “Syrian opposition” leader, Ahmad al-Jarba

 

May, 21, 2014, Information Clearing House

Thursday, May 15 marked Nakba Day, Yawm an-Nakba, “Day of Catastrophe”, the onset of the displacement of up to 800,000 Palestinians, at the time 67% of the population, followed by the destruction of over 500 villages since the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, under the commitment agreed to by the then British Foreign Secretary, Lord Arthur Balfour, in November 1917.

This week: “Figures released by the Ramallah-based Central Bureau of Statistics … put the number of registered Palestinian refugees at 5.3 million. Those refugees live in 58 United Nations-run camps in Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, the West Bank and Gaza Strip.” Tragedy on a scale near unimaginable – ongoing.

Hardly the day to plan another one. However, undaunted, Britain’s current Foreign Secretary, William Hague (“I have been a Conservative Friend of Israel since I was sixteen”) hosted a meeting of the “Friends of Syria” group (Egypt, France, Germany, Italy, Jordan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, the UK and the US) to continue plotting to further decimate another Middle East country and overthrow yet another sovereign head of State.

As increasingly chilling, verified images appear of “opposition” – read insurgent – atrocities in Syria: beheadings, behandings, crucifixions, summary executions and, of course, cannibalism, Hague announced that: “the Syrian opposition would have its diplomatic status in the UK upgraded”, according to the BBC.

The Foreign Secretary was clearly following in his master’s footsteps since last week the Obama regime granted diplomatic foreign mission status to the “Syrian National Coalition” offices in New York and Washington, with a welcome present of a further promised $27 million increase in “non-lethal assistance to rebels fighting to oust President Bashar al-Assad.” This brings the total US support for the above crimes to $287 million.

Strangely, two days before the London meeting, it was announced that Israel’s Justice Minister Tzipi Livni was awarded “special mission” temporary diplomatic status to visit London, “to protect her against arrest and potential prosecution for alleged breaches of international law, including war crimes” relating to Israel’s attack on Gaza in December 2008-January 2009.

Israeli Minister Tzipi Livni meets large Nakba Day protest in London

In December 2009 Livni cancelled a visit to Britain after an arrest warrant was issued by a London Court. “The British government subsequently changed the law on universal jurisdiction … in connection with international war crimes … Previously, citizens could apply directly to a Judge for an arrest warrant.”

Currently, London lawyers Hickman Rose working with Gaza’s Palestinian Centre for Human Rights (PCHR) had again been seeking a warrant for Livni’s arrest, Hickman Rose requesting that the Crown Prosecution Service advise the police to apprehend her: “for suspected war crimes and to liaise with the Attorney General to approve criminal charges.”

PCHR Director Raja Sourani commented of the Foreign Office’s stunt: “As lawyers for the victims of widespread suspected Israeli war crimes, PCHR is very concerned that these kind of political acts endorse the ‘rule of the jungle’ rather than the ‘rule of law.’” Indeed.

The Foreign Office is remarkably selective when it comes to alleged war criminals. Livni’s visit met “all the essential elements for a special mission, and for avoidance of any doubt on the matter, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office has confirmed consent to the visit as a special mission”, they commented.

The reason for Livni’s visit was shrouded in secrecy. What is known that the evening of the “Friends of Syria” meeting, she was to address a fund- raising dinner for the Jewish National Fund at London’s luxury Jumeirah Carlton Tower Hotel ($725 a night current lowest available rate, no wonder funds are needed.) But all those Foreign Office diplomatic sleights of hand to enable something she could have done by video-link?

Well, here’s a thought. Two days before Ms Livni’s arrival in London aided by the Foreign Office’s diplomatic goal post displacements, Major General Amos Yadlin, former Deputy Commander of the Israeli Air Force, who headed military intelligence between 2006-2010 said that “ Israel should weigh launching a military strike at Syria if the Assad regime uses chemical weapons against his civilian population …”

Preferable, though, mooted the General, would be a NATO led action led by the US, with Turkey the key country, establishing a no fly zone over Syria “at the very minimum.” Libya revisited. There should also be “standoff strikes” by NATO aircraft at strategic government targets.

“If Israel discovers that Assad is using chemical weapons against his people in mass attacks, it should intervene militarily”, said the representative of a regime who has used chemical weapons – not alone white phosphorous but also depleted uranium, both a chemical and radioactive weapon – against the Palestinians. Ironically, the article is headed: “Israel should punish Assad for killing civilians”, an expertise Israel has honed with impunity over sixty-six years.

Right on cue, on May 13th, in the lead to the London Conference, Human Rights Watch produced a report of “strong evidence” that Syrian government forces were using chlorine bombs.

Coincidentally, the previous day a letter had been sent to Kenneth Roth, Executive Director of Human Rights Watch, querying the organization’s seemingly extraordinarily partisan relationship with the US government.[1]

A flavour of the content is at paragraph 2:

For example, HRW’s Washington advocacy director, Tom Malinowski, previously served as a special assistant to President Bill Clinton and as a speechwriter to Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. In 2013, he left HRW after being nominated as Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights & Labor under John Kerry.

The letter was also signed by former UN Assistant Secretary General, Hans von Sponeck, current UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights in the Palestinian Territories, Richard Falk and over one hundred scholars

John Kerry was, of course, also in London for the meeting, two days after he and President Obama had met with alleged former brothel owner Ahmed al-Jabra, who heads the “Syrian National Coalition”, in Washington. Jabra too had hopped on a ‘plane to London to attend the up-market plotting venue. A world away from the prison cell in Syria where he allegedly spent time for drug dealing.

Al-Akhbar has written regarding Ahmed al-Jabra of security records showing him: “as a fugitive wanted for criminal offenses, including fraud, corruption, and even assassination plots that were not carried out. According to the source, records show that Riyadh handed over ‘the suspect Ahmad al-Jarba’ to Damascus in 2008, on charges of drug trafficking, in accordance with an extradition agreement between Saudi and Syrian security services … Jarba was tried and sentenced to a prison term at the time.”

ahmad_al-jarba_drug-dealer-terroristMoreover: “ … another entry involving Jarba, which the Qatari security services undoubtedly also have in their records. After the coup staged by the outgoing Emir of Qatar Hamad against his father Khalifa al-Thani, the latter’s Foreign Minister fled to Syria, where he became a vocal supporter for restoring the previous Emir. At the time, according to the records, Emir Hamad’s people asked Ahmad al-Jarba to assassinate the exiled Qatari Foreign Minister … Al-Jarba even received payment after accepting to carry out the mission, the source claimed.” [2]

Perhaps these most serious allegations regarding the man who now has upgraded diplomatic status in the US and UK have passed the State Department and Whitehall by. Whatever, they certainly seem to play fast and loose with awarding diplomatic credentials. In context, if the real reason for the action over Justice Minister Livni’s status change was not so she could attend the plotting against Syria – just over three weeks before the Syrian Presidential election on 3rd June, which President Assad is widely expected to win – it would be beyond astonishing.

Incidentally, at the Jewish National Fund cash-making bash, Livni told an illuminating tale: “Recalling her family history, the minister also jokingly confided to the audience that as Justice Minister it was ‘embarrassing that my parents met while they were robbing a British money train to buy weapons to fight against the British army.’

“Ms Livni told her audience: ‘The first thing I want to emphasise is my parents were freedom fighters and not terrorists. I am not willing to accept any comparison with terrorists like Hamas who are looking for civilians to kill.’”

Clearly this was a week of triumph for selective perception.

Meanwhile, double standards at all levels are the order of the days. Obama, Kerry and Hague repeat the same words: “(President) Assad has no place in Syria’s future” (will any one ever ask what business it is of theirs?) Syria’s election has been declared a “farce”, but that of the US imposed fascist Junta in Ukraine on 25th May is regarded by as a “vote crucial to finding a way out of the crisis and preventing the country from tearing apart further …”

“The US and its allies are working ‘to send a unified message to pro-Russian separatists …’” that interference will not be tolerated. Whilst in sovereign Syria they are giving ever escalating $millions and arms to up to 80 groups of foreign terrorists led by an alleged serial criminal to bloodily interfere at mass murderous level.

In all there is only one consistency: illegal interference in nation states and barely believable levels of double standards. Incidentally Mr al-Jarba refers to the coming “new Syria.” For anyone looking at the ruins of the US’ “new Iraq” and “new Libya”, that should be enough to send all banging on government doors, emailing, telephoning, demonstrating: “Never, ever again.”

Israeli Livni Given UK Immunity for War Crimes

Local Editor

Zionist Justice Minister Tzipi Livni is visiting the U.K. on Thursday, after the U.K. government granted her temporary immunity from prosecution for war crimes in Gaza.

Livni was granted “Special Mission” status for a visit which includes a meeting with Foreign Office officials and a speech at a Jewish National Fund event on Thursday night. The purpose of the Jewish National Fund meeting has not been revealed and the organizers would not reveal any information about its location.

Pro-Palestinian groups are expected to demonstrate outside the event, which will be held at a Central London hotel.

Livni played a prominent role as a member of the Zionist war cabinet during Operation Cast Lead, when the occupation entity carried out air strikes and ground incursions into the Gaza Strip in 2008. Over 1,400 people were killed, including women and children, during the Zionist bombardment of the Gaza Strip.

Livni cancelled a 2009 visit to the U.K. after a magistrates court issued an arrest warrant but the current prime minister David Cameron, then opposition leader, said he would change legislation to protect Zionist politicians from prosecution during visits to the U.K.

Law firm Hikman and Rose had been attempting to get a warrant. The lawyers were acting on behalf of a relative of a Palestinian killed by the Zionist bombing.

Raji Sourani, Director of the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights said: “As the lawyers for the victims of widespread suspected Israeli war crimes, PCHR are very concerned that these kind of political acts endorse the ‘rule of the jungle’ rather than the ‘rule of law’. The stated policy of “ending impunity for international crimes” can only be properly pursued if the rule of law and due process is allowed to prevail, rather than Britain giving a safe haven to suspected war criminals, even for a few hours.”

A Crown Prosecution Service spokesperson said that they had been informed of Livni’s “Special Mission” status and would not be able to accept any applications for her arrest.
