Why Are We There?

The Trump admin has decided that they have the answer to the problems in Palestine……move embassy to Jerusalem and to allow Israel to annex one third of the West Bank.

What the Hell do we have to do with it?

If there is going to be any action should not the people involved in that action be consulted?

Since they signed the Accords in 1967 Israel has NEVER honored any of them…..they have been destroying the crops and stealing land since 1967 and yet they are the ones that are the victims in this saga. Why?

Since Trumpian BS has issued their biased proposal the Israelis have been stepping up their theft and destruction of Palestinian property….

While most attention in the area was on Israel’s planned annexation of much of Palestine, the latest UN report shows that Israel increased demolitions within the occupied territories by roughly 250 percent in the past few weeks.

61 of the 70 demolitions in the early part of June were in Area C of the West Bank, a region which is not just under military occupation, but direct military rule. This has included a number of humanitarian aid sites, which Israel claims were built without permits.

That’s almost certainly the case, as construction permits on Palestinian-owned land are next to impossible to obtain, and in many parts of the West Bank, the Palestinians are used to just building without permit, and hoping that the occupation forces don’t demolish them.

The Trump people and the Israelis meet on annexation……

After months of Israel publicly talking annexation of the West Bank, and saying they believe they have America’s blessing for doing so, the top aides in the Trump Administration have just begun discussing what the US position should actually be.

The entire annexation scheme came out of a combination of Trump’s peace plan, and his endorsement of Israel’s annexation of Golan. US officials have certainly given the impression they were comfortable with punishing the Palestinians for not endorsing Trump’s plan by unilaterally annexing much of Palestine out from under them.

(antiwar.com)

So basically the US is there to make sure that Israel gets to steal the land without any problems from the international community.

What does that make the US?

Here is what a people have to say that are hating Palestinians….

Palestinians and Israelis will both gain from what is wrongly being labeled West Bank “annexation.” Soon after July 1, Israel is expected to apply its civilian law to roughly half of “Area C” of Judea and Samaria (i.e., the West Bank), which it governs under a power-sharing agreement made with the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) 25 years ago. Area C is where almost half-a-million Israelis reside alongside a much smaller number of Palestinians. Naysayers from Israel and abroad have labeled the move an “illegal annexation” that would be responded to with regional violence. The more mundane reality is that applying Israeli law to the disputed area will have two main salutary effects that will benefit all the residents of the area, Israeli and Palestinian alike.

Just how would this benefit the Palestinians who have had their crops destroyed or the land stolen?

Just a fluff piece in Newsweek to justify the barbaric treatment of the Palestinians by Israel and nation of dishonorable criminals.

Closing Thought–15Jun20

You know how I keep saying that our elected reps are gutless and spineless?

Well I have proof.

First the Trump bunch of thugs have given Israel the green light to finish stealing Palestinian land by annexing the West Bank’s Occupied Territories.

Congress people have been given permission to criticize Israel over this annexation thing.

The leading pro-Israel lobby in the United States is telling lawmakers that they are free to criticize Israel’s looming annexation plans — just as long as the criticism stops there.

Two sources — a congressional aide and a donor — say the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, or AIPAC, is delivering that guidance in Zoom meetings and phone calls with lawmakers. The message is unusual because the group assiduously discourages public criticism of Israel.

Does anyone see the cowardice?

Ask permission?

It is okay to speak up against Israel…..

How f*cking pathetic that these spineless bastards are so owned by Israel that they cannot have an opinion without permission.

USS Liberty–2020

Today in history…..

1953  Supreme Court forbids segregated lunch counters

1965  LBJ allows US troops in combat in South Vietnam

1967  Israeli forces attack USS Liberty….and this where this post picks up…..

Fifty three years and counting…….

Every year on the day of the attack, 08 June, I do a post on the USS Liberty in honor of those killed and wounded by the cowardly attack by Israel on a US Naval ship….there are many articles and papers written about this attack and I try to give my reader a library of work on the situation…..so they can better understand what happened on that fateful day.

And yes it was a fateful day…34 American sailors were murdered by a supposed ally, Israel and the US allowed the cowardly attack to go unanswered.

John McCain’s father is the one that allowed the attack to go unanswered…..

Why Not Piss Away More Taxpayer Cash?

Closing Thought–26May20

Our form of government is masterful at wasting money….from useless wars to programs of stupidity to giving cash away for no other reason that “they can”…..

One such give-away is to the state of Israel during the pandemic…..the Senate Bill is…S3176……

The Senate Foreign Relations Committee quietly passed a bill yesterday to give Israel a minimum of $38 billion over the next ten years despite the ongoing devastation to the U.S. economy caused by the coronavirus.

The bill – S.3176 –  will now go before the full Senate. Since the legislation has already been passed by the House of Representatives, if the Senate passes the bill, it will then go to the president to be signed into law.

The bill was passed by the committee under two unusual circumstances and with almost no public awareness.

First, Senate Committee Chairman Jim Risch (R-Idaho) refused to allow a live stream of the meeting, despite the fact that the Senate Rules panel had recommended that extra efforts be taken to ensure public transparency while the Capitol is closed to the public and the presence of reporters is severely limited. The Senate’s Press Gallery Standing Committee of Correspondents had objected strongly to Risch’s decision.

Second, the bill was passed without being named, debated, or even discussed, even though it would set into law the largest such aid package in U.S. history. There has been no mention of the bill by most media in the United States.

But please if you doubt my word read the bill for yourself (you can read right?)……

Let me see….the Senate is willing to let the unemployment guarantees expire to save cash but will mail a check to Israel for $38 billion….now you tell me who these spineless ass wipes work for.

Now you know Israel is more important that the American worker….my thought is……. F*ck Israel….Let Them Make It Own There On Or F*cking Die…….

Help get this BS out for the world to see what our government will do for our “friend”….the media will not release this report so it is up to us bloggers to make it an issue.

Vote the slugs out and try to find someone who will put the American people first….and let Israelis worry about Israel.

72 Years And Counting

What got me to thinking about this issue was something I read about the lawmakers in Missouri……it seems that in that state it is illegal to boycott Israel…..

Missouri lawmakers on Thursday passed a bill to ban the state from doing business with companies that boycott Israel.

The Republican-led House approved the measure 95-40 on Thursday, the day before their Friday deadline to pass bills this year.

The bill is in response to the Palestinian-led Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement which aims to highlight Israel’s human rights abuses.

The movement promotes boycotts, divestment and sanctions of Israeli government-linked institutions and businesses in a non-violent campaign against the occupation of Palestinian territory and other abuses.

However Israel maintains that the campaign is anti-Semitic and seeks to destroy the country.

https://english.alaraby.co.uk/english/news/2020/5/14/missouri-lawmakers-pass-bill-against-boycotting-israel

My thought is….F*ck ’em! I have been boycotting Israel and Israeli products for decades and I refuse to let some sanctimonious ass wipes tell me that I cannot exercise my right of choice.

Seeks to destroy the country?

Hold on!

You mean like they are trying to do to Palestine?

Think not?

When Palestinians commemorate the Nakba – the ethnic cleansing of Palestine in 1948 – they are not simply remembering a past event in which over 750,000 Palestinians were expelled from their homeland, over 400 villages and towns destroyed and thousands killed.  

They are also marking a continued Nakba (al-Nakba al-Mustimirrah in Arabic) – an ongoing process of erasure and ethnic cleansing which has seen Palestinians ghettoised, fragmented, killed and more.  

This year we will be marking 72 years of the Nakba and yet one word seems to be taking front and centre stage: annexation. Ever since the announcement of US President Donald Trump’s ‘Deal of the Century’ at the end of January this year, formal annexation of the occupied West Bank by Israel has been looming.  

https://english.alaraby.co.uk/english/indepth/2020/5/15/remembering-72-years-of-the-nakba-as-annexation-looms

Israel has been trying to erase Palestine from the maps and have been killing, stealing and lying for 72 years to do just that.

Time for the West to cut the apron strings on Israel and let them stand or fall on their own……nowhere is anything Israeli in the best interests of the USA.

Deal Of The Century Is A Complete Dud

We have been waiting for 3+ years for the promised “Deal of the Century”….and now the wait is over.

But sadly the only good thing is that is finally made public the rest is pure bullshit.

With the ink still drying on President Trump’s Middle East peace plan, Israel says it’s ready for action. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Tuesday he will have his cabinet vote Sunday on two key measures: applying Israeli sovereignty to parts of the Jordan Valley and to Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank, the New York Times reports. Both ideas were suggested in Trump’s plan in exchange for Palestine attaining a path to statehood that would include roughly 70% of the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, and other land. But US officials say they’re OK with Israel annexing the areas regardless of whether the 4-year peace plan progresses.

“Israel does not have to wait at all,” says US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, per the Times of Israel. “If they wish to apply Israeli law to those areas allocated to Israel, we will recognize it.” It’s unclear whether these moves will require parliamentary approval in Israel, and there could be court challenges since Nethanyahu’s cabinet is an interim government. Meanwhile Jordan, Palestine, and more liberal Israelis are all opposing Netanyahu’s plan. “This is the first result of the ‘fraud of the century,'” Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat tells the Washington Post. “It was a green light for Netanyahu and the settlers council to do what they wanted to—legalize the settlements.” Palestinians were also slamming the peace plan, per the AP, with President Mahmoud Abbas saying “a thousand no’s” to it

This “plan” is nothing but a prescription for more war and more violence.  It is heavy handed on the Palestinians and gives Israel everything they ever wanted……

Human rights advocates condemned U.S. President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s “annexation plan” for large swaths of Palestinian territory as the two leaders on Tuesday presented what they termed a “peace deal” for Israel and Palestine.

Critics joined Palestinian leaders in rejecting the premise of the so-called “vision for peace,” which was drafted by the White House and Netanyahu without the input of Palestinians.

This is NOT a plan for peace…..but I did not think tha  amental midget and his drooling minions could possibly find an answer that would be acceptable…..the moving of the capital of Israel should have been the first clue.

The Media Is Pathetic!

I have been a long standing critic of the mainstream media for decades….and it gets NO better with time.

The MSM has been a purveyor of b*llsh*t since the Clinton admin…..itm was been a piece of crap a lot longer but with Clinton the entertainment industry and M-IC were allowed to own the media.

I have stated that it is pathetic and I will give you two reasons why I say this……

First the Hong Kong protests.  These are so-called pro-democracy protests……..

Hong Kong’s protests started in June against proposals to allow extradition to mainland China.

Critics feared this could undermine the city’s judicial independence and endanger dissidents.

A former British colony, Hong Kong has some autonomy and more rights than the mainland under a “one country, two systems” deal.

City leader Carrie Lam agreed to suspend the bill, but demonstrations continued and developed to include demands for full democracy and an inquiry into police actions. The bill was finally withdrawn in September.

Clashes between police and activists have been becoming increasingly violent, with police using tear gas and activists storming parliament.

(bbc.com)

What do the Hong Kong protesters want?

  • Withdrawal of the “riot” description used about the protests
  • Amnesty for all arrested protesters
  • An independent inquiry into alleged police brutality
  • Universal suffrage for the elections of the chief executive and Legislative Council, Hong Kong’s parliament.

The media is all over this situation with constant coverage as the protest go on…..and the analysis by this pundit and that.

But what about the protests in the West Bank and Gaza?

After a bout a year of protests against Israel the stats are as follows…..

Israel continues to steal land, destroy crops, illegal construction, etc.

The laws in Israel proper are far from ‘democratic’….

There are currently more than 65 Israeli laws that discriminate against Palestinian citizens in Israel and Palestinian residents of the Occupied Palestinian Territories, according to Adalah, The Legal Center for Arab Minority Rights in Israel.

More than half of these laws were adopted since 2000. From 2009 to present, elections have brought to power the most right‐wing government coalitions in the history of Israel, led by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Adalah noted. 

Critics say Israel’s newest Jewish nation-state law passed on Thursday is just the latest effort to entrench ethnic superiority by promoting racist policies.

Adalah’s database shows how Israel’s laws – dating as far back as 1939 – discriminate against Palestinians.

https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2018/07/ways-israeli-law-discriminates-palestinians-180719120357886.html

America, the beacon of the free press, sets about ignoring for the most part the protests until an Israeli is killed or injured.  Most Americans have an extensive knowledge of the protests in Hong Kong but are mostly ignorant on the protests in the Occupied Territories.

Ask yourself………

What makes Israel a democracy?

Who is the MSM protecting?

Who gains from this omission of facts?

Learn Stuff!

“Lego Ergo Scribo”

If Not The Benjamins Then What?

We all have heard about the massive protests in Hong Kong…we are told it is about democracy and the media has given massive amounts of coverage into these protests.

IN the same time there are massive protests going on in Gaza and the West Bank and the media has given nothing as far as coverage…and by the way these are about democracy also.

Why is this?

Over the last weekend it is reported by the MSM that Hezbollah fired rockets into Northern Israel…..

Israel’s military said it fired into southern Lebanon on Sunday after a number of anti-tank missiles fired by Hezbollah targeted its army base and vehicles near the border. Hezbollah was responding to an earlier drone attack by Israel. 

The missiles hit several targets in Israel’s border town of Avivim on Sunday, the Israeli army said, adding it responded by shelling 100 targets inside Lebanon.

Israel, however, said the attack did not lead to any casualties on its side.

(AJE)

In the same time frame Palestinian protesters were shot and killed by Israel’s military and yet there is still NO coverage by the MSM.

Why is this?

Someone said that Israel has its hands everywhere in the US and that their dollars pay well for our politicians and others.

Of course that person was attacked as an anti-Semite even when NOTHING was said against the Jewish religion…..so I guess I will be labelled as such sense I will not bend over for Israel or any of their fingers of influence, which are many.

Why is this?

Why is one democracy movement more newsworthy than another?

Whys is one potential conflict more important than another?

If it is not about undue influence then why is not actual reporting more balanced?

The mainstream media is lying to the public and Americans are deluding themselves it they think it is anything other than influence and the “Benjamins”.

The MSM is always looking into the meat of any incident whether violence, or whatever….but they refuse to do so with Israel.

Why is this?

If they want to promote democracy then do so fairly…..until then maybe the MSM should take a good look at what they are and a news organization is not anywhere near that definition.

There was a time when Israel did not control our president or our Congress……

Representatives Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib as “anti-Semites” and for “hating Israel”—labels that Mr. Trump will likely apply to varying degree to Democrats during the 2020 campaign. 

Both Democratic congresswomen endorse boycotts, divestment, and sanctions—as well as UN censures of Israel—to support Palestinian rights. The American Israel Public Affairs Committee, among other interest groups, insists that BDS “intends to delegitimize” if not “destroy” Israel, and many politicians in Washington agree. 

Yet interestingly, Omar and Tlaib are echoing the Republican Party’s support of censures and repeated threats to apply economic sanctions against the Jewish state from the days of President Dwight Eisenhower. 

Eisenhower tightly controlled U.S. foreign policy and was pivotal to the UN Security Council’s censuring of Israel in November 1953, March 1955, and in January 1956. The reasons for each rebukes were similar, as they all involved what Eisenhower believed to be illegal aggression and violence against Israel’s Arab neighbors.

That is right……a US president that did not kiss the ring of the Israelis.

Disloyal?

Closing Thought–22Aug19

I have been told by my president…well your president for I did not and would not vote for this person……that if I do not support Israel then I am being disloyal…..to whom?  To Israel?  Who f*cking cares?

Showing a fresh willingness to play politics along religious and racial lines, President Donald Trump said Tuesday that American Jewish people who vote for Democrats show “either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty.” Trump’s claim triggered a quick uproar from critics who said the president was trading in anti-Semitic stereotypes, the AP reports. It came amid his ongoing feud with Democratic congresswomen Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, both Muslim. Trump has closely aligned himself with Israel, including its conservative prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, while the Muslim lawmakers have been outspoken critics of Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians. Tlaib is a US-born Palestinian American, while Omar was born in Somalia.

“Where has the Democratic Party gone? Where have they gone where they are defending these two people over the state of Israel?” Trump told reporters. “I think any Jewish people that vote for a Democrat, I think it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty.” Trump’s comments were denounced swiftly by Jewish American organizations. “This is yet another example of Donald Trump continuing to weaponize and politicize anti-Semitism,” said Halie Soifer, executive director of the Jewish Democratic Council of America. “At a time when anti-Semitic incidents have increased—due to the president’s emboldening of white nationalism—Trump is repeating an anti-Semitic trope.” The Republican Jewish Coalition defended Trump, arguing that the president was speaking about people being disloyal to themselves rather than to Israel.

Disloyal…I think Trump is a moron and can kiss my ass.

This is pure bullsh*t….kinda like those lame ass Americans that will not join our military but will go and fight in Israel’s military.

I am an American….what I think about Israel does not change that fact.

I was loyal enough to join my country’s military can our president say the same thing?

No he cannot for he had fake bone spurs.

Israel Is Afraid Of A Couple Of Women

This nation proves daily to the world just how cowardly and bigoted they are…..democracy my ASS!

I am not a fan of the state of Israel….they proved yet again that it is anything but a democracy.  A state that steals, murders, and destroys anything they care to do….they arm a radical bunch of bastards to do their dirty work at people that disagree with their policies.

AIPAC gives freebies to Congress people…free trip to Israel ……but polls show that most Americans do not approve of these freebies….

Seventy members of the U.S. Congress (16% of the total membership) are visiting Israel during recess. Most of the private funding for the junket arrives through an entity called the American Israel Education Foundation. AIEF officially formed as a “supporting organization of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee” (AIPAC) in 1988 and applied for tax exempt status in 1989.

AIEF formed to receive fully tax-deductible contributions for “educational purposes” that could then be funneled into AIPAC initiatives. AIPAC – then as now – is categorized by the IRS as a lobbying organization that can only receive non-deductible contributions. AIEF claimed in filings to the IRS that it would educate students and young professionals about the Middle East and pursue other educational endeavors with a bona fide social welfare purpose. There is nothing in its application for tax exempt status about junkets for politicians. Yet today AIEF funds AIPAC organized trips to Israel for members of Congress costing $10,000 or more per individual. AIPAC staffers organize and conduct the tours. Thanks to AIEF and a handful of similar groups, one out of every three privately funded congressional trips lands in Israel. A recent representative poll of 2,000 voting age Americans asked about the Democratic Party delegation to Israel reveals 65.7% opposed it and think representatives should instead return to their districts.

(antiwar.com)

I think this amounts to bribery and anyone who accepts the freebie is guilty……a lawsuit has been filed with the Office of Congressional Ethics……finally take these bastards to task…..

Antiwar activist group Codepink has filed a claim with the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE) arguing that yearly trips to Israel for freshman lawmakers hosted by the lobbying group American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) are unconstitutional.

In a complaint, the activists claim that AIPAC’s use of a nonprofit closely tied to the group’s organizational structure violates laws prohibiting lobbying groups from gifting personal travel to members of Congress.

“These congresspeople are our public officials who are being taken by lobbyists to a foreign country for the purpose of increasing support for Israel — a country that already receives $3.8 billion a year of our tax dollars,” the group’s co-director Medea Benjamin said in a press release.

The mighty Israeli government is afraid of a few women of color…..they have barred two women from entry into the apartheid state of Israel.  Kinda like the cowards they are.

Last week, 41 Democratic members of Congress visited Israel, and 31 Republicans are currently there now, reports the Jerusalem Post. Such routine visits don’t generate much attention. By contrast, the proposed visit of two more members of Congress very much surfaced as a source of international headlines—because those two members happen to be Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, vocal critics of Israel. On Thursday, Benjamin Netanyahu’s government officially banned the pair, after being pressured by President Trump to do just that. Coverage:

  • About-face: Last month, Israel Ambassador Ron Dermer said the pair would be allowed to visit, but Prime Minister Netanyahu began signaling over the past week that he might reverse course, reports the Washington Post. It became official on Thursday. “The decision has been made; the decision is not to allow them to enter,” said Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely on Reshet Radio. The congresswomen were due to arrive on Friday, and the decision will not sit well with Democratic leaders of Congress.
  • The rationale: A new law allows Israel to bar people who support the movement to boycott Israel over its treatment of Palestinians, per the Wall Street Journal. Omar and Tlaib clearly qualify, as both have publicly backed the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement. (Omar also has been formally rebuked by fellow House Democrats for using “anti-Semitic tropes.”)
  • Trump’s role: The president had weighed in Thursday morning, continuing his frequent criticism of the members of “The Squad.” “It would show great weakness if Israel allowed Rep. Omar and Rep. Tlaib to visit,” he tweeted. “They hate Israel & all Jewish people, & there is nothing that can be said or done to change their minds. Minnesota and Michigan will have a hard time putting them back in office. They are a disgrace!” Over the weekend, Axios first reported that Trump wanted the visit blocked.
  • The other reason: Netanyahu is locked in a close election fight, notes the New York Times, and he can’t afford to look weak to his base. Voting takes place in September. He and Trump have strong relations.
  • Itinerary: Omar and Tlaib had no visits booked with Israeli leaders. Instead, they planned to visit the West Bank cities of Hebron, Ramallah, and Bethlehem. Axios reports that the biggest fear of Israeli officials is that they would visit Temple Mount, which it describes as the most holy site for Jews and the third holiest for Muslims. Both Israel and the Palestinians make claims of sovereignty over it. Tlaib also wanted to stay longer to visit her grandmother in the West Bank.

A democracy would not do such a thing…..a cowardly bunch of racist toads would.

Israel is afraid of a couple of freshman representatives….typical cowardly intentions….kinda in the vain of the attack on the USS Liberty in 1967….that was cowardly and Israel has NOT shown me they are anything but a pack of cowards.

AIPAC is reporting they have broken with BiBi……

The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) on Thursday broke with Israel’s decision to bar Democratic Reps. Ilhan Omar (Minn.) and Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) from visiting the country, saying “every member of Congress should be able to visit.” 

“We disagree with Reps. Omar and Tlaib’s support for the anti-Israel and anti-peace BDS movement, along with Rep. Tlaib’s calls for a one-state solution. We also believe every member of Congress should be able to visit and experience our democratic ally Israel firsthand,” AIPAC tweeted Thursday.

Really?  More like a way to try and divert criticism….they will be back on-board in no time at all.  For now it is a good sign…only time will tell how serious this move is…..time will tell.

Since the Dems have egg on their face inb their undying support for Israel as a democratic state….after this the scramble will be on to try and fix the damage done by Trump and BiBi…..

Breaking News….Israel like Trump has waffled…..

Israel has decided to approve a petition by U.S. Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib to enter Israel on ‘humanitarian grounds’ so she may visit her Palestinian grandmother, the Interior Ministry announced Friday, this after it barred her from entering the country due to her support for the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement.

With millions and millions on the line with Israel’s decision…..they have changed their mind on Rashida so she could visit her grandmother in the Occupied Territory

Remember when someone said “It is all about the Benjamins”?

This proves that that is the case.
