Parallels Between Israel and 1930s Germany

The situation in Israel and Palestine is one that most of the Western world has no idea about the events…..the MSM goes out of its way to avoid any news that would put Israel in a bad light…..

But if one searches the media they will see that there is so much more going on and the world needs to take a close look at the situation….

All hell broke loose. What!!! Traces of Nazism in Israel? A resemblance between what the Nazis did to us with what we are doing to the Palestinians?

90 years ago was 1926, one of the last years of the German republic. 80 years ago was 1936, three years after the Nazis came to power. 70 years ago was 1946, on the morrow of Hitler’s suicide and the end of the Nazi Reich.

I feel compelled to write about the general’s speech after all, because I was there.

Remember these are comparisons….and yet I am not alone in my suspicion…

Twin Nations–Different Religion

Yes I have been a critic of Israel for many years and for some time I have been a critic of the head choppers we call ally, Saudi Arabia.

For some time now there have been rumblings in the Middle East that the Saudis and the Israelis have been in secret negotiations…..I have written about this occurrence also…..

I appears that Saudi Arabia and Israel are becoming very similar…..and in many ways……

On the surface, it would seem that Saudi Arabia and Israel would be the worst of enemies and indeed, they have never had diplomatic relations. After all, the Saudis have championed the cause of the Palestinians, who are oppressed by the Israelis. Israelis say they are besieged by Muslim extremists, and many of these extremists […]

Now the question is….how will this partnership effect the Middle East?  Can this new found love for each other be sustained?

Fair Reporting Would Make A Difference

This press is of an op-ed that I wrote for my friends at Ace News Room……it is no secret that I am a supporter of the Palestinian people and their desire for their homeland and the right to return…..

Western media seldom reports accurately about the situation and the incidents occurring in the Holy Land……I try to remedy that oversight on their part.

It is no secret that I have zero tolerance for the Western media when it comes to the conflict in and around the Holy Land…..Americans have a blind spot when it comes to Israel…..

The Facade of Israel is Cracking

For sixty years the western media has protected Israel from any sort of negative PR no matter the extent of their depravity……but thanx to social media their actions are being reported and seen by many many people……most of whom have no idea the actions that Israel will take to depress the Palestinians under their control…..

Just look at the demolitions that the media refuses to print……

Social media is making it possible for the western world to see what the Middle East has known the whole time…..and it seems to be working……

For many more years than any intelligent person would want to count, Israel was the sacred cow of the United States. From its violent, bloody, genocidal inception that involved the ethnic cleansing…

Little by little the world is seeing just how oppressive the Israeli government can be.

It is about damn time!

Why Israel needs a two-state solution

I spend a lot of time with my Middle East sources and have seen an up-tick in the news that Israel may be shining up to the idea of a two state solution to the conflict they now find themselves in….

Now there is a need for this solution and here is why…..(it is written by an Israeli)……..

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s view of Islamic State terror as a clash of civilizations paints Israel as the “good guy,” absolving it of resolving the conflict with the Palestinians.

Finally Israel is being called to account for their barbaric actions and it is all thanks to social media that gets the news out as it happens.

I am leery of anything that Israel does or says….they have shined up to this solution many times only to crap on it the first chance they get.  I think that this may well be one of those times…..yet again.

To say that I do not trust anything Israel says or promises is putting it mildly.

But I guess I will have to wait and see if maybe this time Israel may be serious….(not holding my breath)……

Non-Violent BDS Should Be Welcomed, Not Condemned

I have been a supporter of the Palestinian people and their struggle for more than 30 years……I am old and cannot do the same things I did in my youth to protest what I saw as injustice……the only thing I can do these days is join the BDS Movement and boycott all items from Israel.

I realize it is not much but like they say a movement begins when one person stands up to oppression…..many have joined with me in this endeavor (thanx one and all)……

But there are those in the US that are trying to kill this movement….some states are trying to make it illegal to boycott Israel or to do anything to make them act like a responsible player on the world stage.  New York was the first to make it a crime to boycott Israel……even some countries are trying to make it illegal……

Sorry, but I will NOT let someone, even a state, dictate to me what I can do or not do with my time and/or money…..illegal or not…they can kiss my ass!

There are many who are joining together to fight the BDS Movement……

A thousand Israelis and their supporters gathered in Jerusalem’s International Convention Center on March 28 at a conference aimed at combating the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (BDS). The conference was a display of “fear, paranoia, anger and determination,” as described by Antony Loewenstein, and featured top government officials, members of the oppositions and a […]

Finally, this is non-violence at its best……hurt them in their pocket books and not in the head……

What’s Next For Palestine?

I write a lot about the Middle East and the Palestinian situation….my interest comes from a close friend and colleague from my past that was a Palestinian ex-pat……I try to help Americans understand what is happening from a Palestinian perspective….the Israeli perspective is pretty much the western papers are willing to publish….

If anyone would like to know what is being said about the most recent flare-up of hostilities then maybe a little help would be in order (it is from a Palestinian point of view…please keep that in mind before one goes off on some rant)…..

A two-state solution is increasingly becoming a dead issue and the only active one is Israel s work towards a complete Judaisation of historical Palestine

With that bit of background out of the way…..June of 2017 will be the 50th anniversary of the 6 Day War…..and Palestine may be planning something that, in my opinion, should have happen decades ago…..

But first a little more perspective……

Recently I wrote a post for my friends at Legationes about what I though the Palestinians should do……

I had been playing with an idea that could possibly aid the Palestinian people and their search for a state of Palestine: this post is part of those thoughts.

Israel usually issues sweeping declarations in the month of November and there is a slight chance that after the US election that BiBi will issue a rsolution calling for a 2 state solution to the conflict…..

Source: Will a two-state solution be announced in November? – Al-Monitor: the Pulse of the Middle East

There is also a buzz in the region that there could be a massive declaration coming from the Palestinians in 2017……could BiBi’s announcement in November be a ploy to head off any announcement by the Palestinians?

After 50 years of suffering at the hands of occupiers…..it appears that the Palestinian leadership is preparing to do what I and others have been championing for years…..

June 6, 2017, will mark 50 years since the Six Day War in which Israel conquered the West Bank and the Gaza Strip as well as the Sinai Peninsula and the Golan Heights. Israel considered it a war of defense, given repeated threats by Egyptian leadership at the time (then-President Gamal Abdel Nasser) to annihilate the country with the support of all Arab states. The Arab armies were defeated in six days. But what started as a rescue war, as a blessing for Israel, turned with time into a burden and a curse of controlling the lives of 2-3 million Palestinians. For the Palestinians, this date marks a second tragedy, after the very establishment of Israel in 1948.

Next year could prove to be an interesting year……but only problem I see from an American point of view is that there will be a new president in the White House and neither has shown any interest or concern for the Palestinian people…..
