Merkel Declares Anti-Zionism 'Same As' Anti-Semitism - Punishable By Prison
 
 
 
 
 
 
September 25, 2017
 
 
 
 
 
 
Angela Merkel declares anti-zionism to be same as anti-semitism
 
Angela Merkel has formally declared anti-Zionism to be the same as anti-Semitism - making any criticism of Israel punishable by prison in Germany.
 
The formal adoption of the international definition of anti-Semitism has been done in order to "provide clarity for the prosecution of hate crimes."
 
The German Cabinet announced Wednesday that it unanimously adopted the working definition promoted by the International Alliance for Holocaust Remembrance.
 
Forward.com reports:  In addition to classic forms of anti-Semitism, the definition offers examples of modern manifestations, such as targeting all Jews as a proxy for Israel, denying Jews the right to a homeland and using historical anti-Semitic images to tarnish all Israelis.
 
"We Germans are particularly vigilant when our country is threatened by an increase in anti-Semitism," Minister of the Interior Thomas de Maizière said following the Wednesday morning meeting. "History made clear to us, in the most terrible way, the horrors to which anti-Semitism can lead."
 
Josef Schuster, head of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, welcomed the announcement "as a clear signal" that anti-Semitism is not tolerated in Germany.
 
In Germany, recent court decisions reveal the difficulty of finding unanimity on the issue. For example, while some courts have found anti-Zionist-motivated crimes to be tantamount to anti-Semitism, since perpetrators blame Jews in Germany for Israel's policies, other courts have accepted political motivation as a mitigating factor in sentencing.

New Polish laws 'open the doors to Holocaust denial'
 
 
 
 
 
June 6, 2018
 
 
 
 
 
POLAND'S new anti-defamation laws have "opened the door" to normalising Holocaust denial, Labour's Alex Sobel told MPs yesterday.
 
The Leeds North West MP led a debate drawing attention to the hard-right Warsaw government's outlawing of references to Polish complicity in nazi crimes.
 
Mr Sobel said the "nationalist" laws "posed a threat" to proper historical understanding of the Holocaust. Poland's government denies such claims.
 
However, Mr Sobel told the Star that the laws risk allowing anti-semites to "think that their abuse is acceptable."
 
"I have personally received such abuse and I think the debate aired those issues here.
 
"The Polish anti-defamation laws have given licence to a widespread range of activity around the Holocaust - from a tirade of abuse against the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum to a lawsuit against an Argentinian newspaper.
 
"I hope the government takes up my concerns with their Polish counterparts at every opportunity."

An Incomplete List of Israel's Violations of Human Rights
 
 
 
 
 
 
May 12, 2013
 
 
 
 
 
 
N.B. I haven't updated this list since 2013. Instead, follow my daily documentation of Israel's violation of human rights on Twitter and see the popular Israel and Palestine tags on my blog.
___________________________________________________________________________________
 
Zionists-of all stripes, conservatives and liberals alike-often insist they "just don't get what Israel does wrong!" There's nothing wrong with Israel that isn't wrong with other countries, they insist. If it commits a crime that they acknowledge as problematic, or even bad, it's simply because no state is perfect. "Israel makes mistakes, just like any other country; its crimes aren't any worse," the idea often goes. If you're not Jewish and you criticize Israel, in this perspective, it's not because Israel is some kind of violent, anomalous rogue state, it's because you're "anti-Semitic"; if you are Jewish and you harshly criticize Israel, it's not because morally consistent human beings must do so, but because you are a so-called "self-hating Jew"-or so the ridiculous hegemonic myths go.
 
The fact of the matter is Israel is a leading violator of human rights-along with its closest ally, the U.S., which facilitates its crimes and affords it impunity. Israel habitually acts impetuously and unilaterally, with little to no international approval and support, often in complete violation of international law (once again, just like the U.S.). Israel is indisputably an apartheid state that has tortured the indigenous Palestinian population for three-quarters of a century.
 
It is absolutely critical to understand the following list in terms of Israel's modern crimes. Israel's crimes against humanity are nothing new. Since its earliest days-as Israeli historian Ilan Pappé so masterfully demonstrates in his 2006 magnum opus The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine-Israel has demonstrated, again and again, that human beings are mere tools in its quest for what Israeli scholar Oren Yiftachel calls an ethnocratic state, one built upon the skeletons of murdered indigenous peoples (yet again, like the U.S.).
 
Much of the ignorance surrounding these crimes (and the long history of these crimes) is rooted in the fact that the U.S. corporate media has very little (virtually nothing) bad to say about Israel. Israel is one of the U.S.' only allies. Criticizing it would defy U.S. interests abroad-and particularly in the Middle East, a region of enormous economic and strategic importance for U.S. economic and military interests. Criticizing it is therefore almost entirely off the corporate journalist's table, particularly egregious circumstances notwithstanding.
 
I hence decided to compile a non-comprehensive list of Israel's human rights violations, so I won't have to keep getting in the same argument again and again… and again and again and again.
 
A final note, for emphasis: Please don't think that this list is comprehensive. This is by no means, whatsoever a complete list. Not even close. It would be impossible to document all of Israel's crimes in one place; there are simply too many, and they multiply more rapidly than one could possibly document them.
 
Nevertheless, let us begin:
 
Starvation
 
- Business Insider: The Israeli Campaign To Starve Palestinians Into Submission Is A Crime
 
 … cruel, unnecessary, and vindictive military siege and naval blockade by the country of Israel.
 
The blockade is keeping out food and medicine, and makes the Palestinians prisoners in their own country. It needs to end. That's not just me talking: that's the take of the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights and many human rights organizations. Hell, even the British think the blockade is a cruelty that needs to end.
 
British prime minister David Cameron has criticized the blockade, saying "Humanitarian goods and people must flow in both directions. Gaza cannot and must not be allowed to remain a prison camp."
 
 
This week, it will be Israeli ships, not Hamas ships, who intercept, board, and harass peace activists who are trying to bring food and medicine to the beleaguered Palestinians. …
 
The people of Gaza have the human right to receive humanitarian aid, and all Palestinian people have the right to live free from illegal occupation, settler colonialism, and violent state terrorism under Israel."
 
The worst part of all this nonsense? We now know, thanks to WikiLeaks and other hacktivist heroes, that Israel is purposefully keeping the Palestinian people in a state of abject misery. This isn't an accidental starvation of people; this is a planned regime of torture against the Palestinian people.
 
"As part of their overall embargo plan against Gaza, Israeli officials have confirmed to (U.S. embassy economic officers) on multiple occasions that they intend to keep the Gazan economy on the brink of collapse without quite pushing it over the edge," one of the leaked cables read.
 
Israel wanted the coastal territory's economy "functioning at the lowest level possible consistent with avoiding a humanitarian crisis", according to the Nov. 3, 2008 cable.
 
- Abu Dhabi's The National: "The starvation diet for Gaza shows the blockade will fall"
 
Six and a half years ago [in 2006], shortly after Hamas won the Palestinian national elections and took control of Gaza, a senior Israeli official described Israel's planned response. "The idea," he said, "is to put the Palestinians on a diet, but not to make them die of hunger."
 
 
After a three-year legal battle by an Israeli human rights group, Gisha, Israel was forced to disclose its so-called "Red Lines" document. Drafted in early 2008, the defence ministry paper set forth proposals on how to treat Hamas-ruled Gaza.
 
Health officials provided calculations of the minimum number of calories needed by Gaza's 1.5 million inhabitants to avoid malnutrition. Those figures were then translated into truckloads of food Israel was supposed to allow in each day.
 
The Israeli media has tried to present these chilling discussions, held in secret, in the best light possible. Even the liberal Haaretz newspaper euphemistically described this extreme form of calorie-counting as designed to "make sure Gaza didn't starve".
 
But a rather different picture emerges as one reads the fine print. While the health ministry determined that Gazans needed a daily average of 2,279 calories each to avoid malnutrition - requiring 170 lorries a day - military officials then found a host of pretexts to whittle the number down to a fraction of the original figure.
 
The reality was that, in this period, an average of only 67 lorries - much less than half of the minimum requirement - entered Gaza daily. This compared to more than 400 lorries before the blockade began.
 
It does not need an expert to conclude that the consequence of this Weisglass-style "diet" would be widespread malnutrition, especially among children. And that is what happened, as a leaked report from the International Committee of the Red Cross found in 2008: "Chronic malnutrition is on a steadily rising trend and micronutrient deficiencies are of great concern."
 
 
There can be little doubt that the diet devised for Gaza - much like Israel's blockade in general - was intended as a form of collective punishment, one directed at every man, woman and child. According to the Israeli defence ministry, "economic warfare" would create a political crisis leading to the overthrow of Hamas.
 
Earlier, when Israel carried out its 2005 disengagement, it presented the withdrawal as marking the end of Gaza's occupation. But the "Red Lines" formula indicates quite the opposite: that in reality Israeli officials intensified their control, managing the lives of Gaza's inhabitants in almost-microscopic detail.
 
Who can doubt - given the experiences of Gaza over the past few years - that there exist in the Israeli military's archives still-classified documents setting out other experiments in social engineering? Will future historians discover that Israel also pondered the fewest hours of electricity needed by Gazans to survive, or the minimum amount of water, or the smallest living space per family, or the highest feasible levels of unemployment?
 
Such formulas may be behind the decisions to bomb Gaza's only power station in 2006; the refusal to approve a desalination plant, even though the Strip's underground water supply is threatened; the declaration of large swathes of farmland as no-go areas, forcing the rural population into overcrowded cities and refugee camps; and the continuing blockade on exports, destroying Gaza's business community and ensuring the population remains dependent on aid.
 
It is precisely these policies that led the United Nations to warn in August that Gaza would be "uninhabitable" by 2020.
 
In fact, the rationale for the Red Lines document and other measures can be found in an Israeli military strategy that reached its peak in Operation Cast Lead, the attack on Gaza in winter 2008-09.
 
 
This "security concept", as the Israeli army termed it, involves the wholesale destruction of a community's infrastructure to immerse it so deeply in the problems of survival and reconstruction that other concerns, including fighting back or resisting occupation, are no longer practicable.
 
On the first day of the Gaza offensive, Yoav Galant, the commander in charge, explained the aim succinctly: it was to "send Gaza decades into the past". Seen in this context, Mr Weisglass' diet can be understood as just one more refinement of the Dahiya doctrine: a society refashioned to accept its subjugation through a combination of violence, poverty, malnutrition and a permanent struggle over limited resources.
 
- Democracy Now!: "Document: Israel Calculated Number of Calories Needed by Gazans"
 
A newly released document shows Israel calculated the precise number of calories that residents of the Gaza Strip would need to eat in order to avoid malnutrition during a strict Israeli blockade that lasted until 2010. An Israeli military spokesperson said Wednesday a mathematical formula was created to avoid a humanitarian crisis, but denied it was used to restrict food into Gaza.
 
- Juan Cole, on AlterNet: "Israeli Government Consciously Planned to Keep Palestinians "on a Diet", Controlling Their Food Supply, Damning Document Reveals"
 
An Israeli human rights organization, Gisha, sued in Israeli courts to force the release of a planning document for 'putting the Palestinians on a diet' without risking the bad press of mass starvation, and the courts concurred. The document, produced by the Israeli army, appears to be a calculation of how to make sure, despite the Israeli blockade, that Palestinians got an average of 2279 calories a day, the basic need. But by planning on limiting the calories in that way, the Israeli military was actually plotting to keep Palestinians in Gaza (half of them children) permanently on the brink of malnutrition, what health professionals call "food insecurity". And, it was foreseeable that sometimes they would slip into malnutrition, since not as many trucks were always let in every day as the Israeli army recommended (106 were recommended, but it was often less in the period 2007-2010).
 
 
The food blockade had real effects. About ten percent of Palestinian children in Gaza under 5 have had their growth stunted by malnutrition.A recent report [pdf] by Save the Children and Medical Aid for Palestinians found that, in addition, anemia is widespread, affecting over two-thirds of infants, 58.6 percent of schoolchildren, and over a third of pregnant mothers.
 
 
Although, under international pressure, the Israeli government eased its blockade slightly in 2010, and foodstuffs are no longer interdicted, it still limits imports into Gaza, and its wide-ranging ban on exports has thrown Palestinians into unemployment at Depression levels, imperiling their ability to afford food even when it is available.A UN Report out last month predicts that if Israel does not change its policies toward Gaza, the strip will be uninhabitable by 2020, when the population will likely be 2.1 million (think Houston). The deterioration of the water, and the sharp downward mobility of the Palestinians, are only some of the problems the territory will face.
 
Note that the Israeli government did not voluntarily cease its policy of keeping Palestinians on a diet in 2010. It was forced to by Turkish and European aid activists, and 9 people, one an American citizen, were martyred for this change when Israeli commandos illegally boarded a civilian, unarmed ship in international waters and shot it up.
 
 
Aljazeera English has a video report, valuable because unlike CNN or other Western cable news channels, it actually interviews the Palestinians affected.
 
It is precisely because the Israeli blockade of Palestinian non-combatants in Gaza is considered creepy and evil not just by me but by any ethical person that a number of European members of parliament have boarded the aid ship Estelle, and will make another attempt to deliver food and other aid to Gaza, despite Israeli threats.
 
The blockade has medical as well as nutritional bad effects. Palestinians in Gaza have to get Israeli permission (!) to leave the strip for medical care. Palestinian hospitals, having been starved of funds and materiel by Israel, are dilapidated. A study published this month in The Lancet found that 10% of such requests were delayed or rejected by Israeli authorities (the rejection or delay rate for the Palestinian territories over all is nearly a fifth). Israel's delays murdered 6 Palestinians in Gaza last year, as surely as though they had been taken out and shot twice behind the ear. How would you like to have to apply to an arbitrary foreign government for permission to go next door to a neighboring country for medical care?
 
The [pdf] Lancet article says,
 
"In 2011, 1082 (10%) of 10,560 applicants in the Gaza Strip had their access permits denied or delayed, with no reason given, and 197 (2%) were called for security interview. Patients aged 18-40 years had the highest rate of denied or delayed permits. Tracer interviews with Gazan families of patients who had their permits denied or delayed showed that six patients died while waiting for the permits."
 
The Gaza Strip is a small expanse of land on the coast of the Mediterranean to Israel's southeast, which also borders on Egypt's Sinai Peninsula. Some 40% of its 1.7 million people are victims of Israel's 1948 ethnic cleansing campaign, and many, having been chased off their farms and out of their homes by the military forces of the Yishuv (the Jewish settler community in British Mandate Palestine), still live, or their descendants do, in refugee camps. The territory was captured by Israel in 1967, and until 2005 Israelis were actually encouraged to colonize it. The Kadima government gave up on that enterprise, but did not let its Palestinian people go.
 
In January of 2006, Hamas won the elections for the Palestine Authority (it had been allowed to run at the insistence of Bush, who, however, backed down in a cowardly way from 'democratization' when the Israelis insisted that the outcome was unacceptable). The Bush administration and the Israeli government connived in staging a coup by Fateh in the West Bank. The coup failed in Gaza, where the elected Hamas government retained control.
 
From 2007, Israel imposed a blockade on the exports and imports of the Palestinians of the Gaza Strip. It vastly limited the number of trucks that were allowed in from Israel and disallowed most exports. Dov Weinglass, an aide to then Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, announced that the Palestinians would be 'put on a diet.' That is, the Israeli government had decided to wage economic and nutritional warfare against the Palestinians.
 
Obviously, allowing them to become malnourished would raise an outcry even in an international community that typically allows Israel's settler colonialism to get away with murder toward the Palestinians. So the policy was to keep the Palestinians "food insecure." That is, they wouldn't be starved, but they'd be one step away from starving - if they lost a source of income, for instance.
 
Wikileaks revealed a US embassy cable that confirmed, "As part of their overall embargo plan against Gaza, Israeli officials have confirmed to [U.S. embassy economic officers] on multiple occasions that they intend to keep the Gazan economy on the brink of collapse without quite pushing it over the edge…"
 
 Discrimination against migrants and refugees
 
- In "Israel Begins Rounding Up and Interning Africans," The African Globe notes Israel is deporting African migrants,  deeming them "a threat to the Jewish character of the state."
 
The Israeli government wants to get rid of "60,000 African migrants, whose numbers are seen by many Israelis as a law and order issue and even a threat to the long-term viability of the Jewish state," according to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
 
- The African Refugee Development Center (ARDC) keeps greatly details racist crimes committed against African refugees in Israel.
 
On 30 January 2012, ARDC submitted a report to the UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.
 
This report demonstrates that Israel continues to ignore its international obligations towards asylum seekers and refugees and that various laws, policies and practices are racially discriminatory at their basis against this vulnerable population.
 
ARDC documents, among other things, how Israel maintains its harsh policy of detention; tolerates segregation in the education system in Eilat; tacitly condones discriminatory edicts by state-employed rabbis; allocates temporary group protection to over 90 percent of the asylum seekers who arrive; and has reluctantly granted refugee status to only 140 individuals.
 
The root of this discrimination stems from the tension created by Israel's sensitive political-demographic status as a Jewish state. Several of Israel's high-ranking politicians have demonstrated an apparent lack of commitment in protecting the human rights of asylum seekers and eliminating racial discrimination. The coalition government, elected in 2009, is dominated by ethno-religious and extreme right wing parties and key positions are held by politicians openly hostile to asylum seekers.
 
Racially discriminatory, provocative and even inciteful language by influential public figures-wholly adopted by the mainstream media-is at least partially responsible for generating a community-wide backlash against the asylum seekers. The rise of this community hatred, partly fueled Members of the Knesset and councilors, towards the new population is closely recorded in this report.
 
The report consist of two parts: the written report (available below) and the 55 minute video documentary (subtitled in Hebrew) that appears below.
 
- "Shocking Decline in Ethiopian Israeli Birthrate," The Jewish Daily Forward, Renee Ghert-Zand, 10 December 2012
 
Israel is forcing Ethiopian women to take a contraceptive injection, to suppress the Ethiopian birthrate. The title of this article is misleading; this crime legally constitutes a form of genocide.
 
The birthrate among Ethiopians in Israel decreased by a dramatic 50% in the last decade, and Israeli journalist Gal Gabai wanted to know why. She investigated the issue for "Vacuum," her documentary series on Israeli Educational Television, and she discovered some things that left her very uncomfortable - and will surely leave others equally so.
 
Educational Television posted Gabai's 25-minute report, titled "Where did the children disappear to?" on YouTube on December 6, two days before it was scheduled to air on channel 23.
 
In her attempt to find out what the story was behind the shocking statistic, Gabai interviewed Ethiopian women immigrants and learned from them that they were given Depo-Provera (a contraceptive injection containing the hormone progestin administered once every three months) against their will. While some did not understand what the shots were for, others felt pressured into taking them in response to alleged threats that they would otherwise not be allowed to immigrate to Israel. The shots began in the refugee camps in Gondar, continued in the transition camps in Addis Ababa, and continued on after their arrivals in Israel. According to the women's testimony, this continuity appears to have been a coordinated effort between the medical staff at the clinics in Ethiopia run by the JDC and doctors in Israeli hospitals and clinics.
 
The women, it seems, were never given proper family planning counseling outlining the various birth control methods, nor were they given the chance to choose the one with which they felt most comfortable. What were they given? The clear message that life would be very hard for them if they were to have large families in Israel.

Unnecessarily violent retaliation against Palestinians
 
"Israeli minister vows Palestinian 'holocaust'," The Telegraph, Tim Butcher, 29 February 2008
 
In Feburary 2008, a senior Israeli politician told Palestinians firing rockets from Gaza, in response to Israeli provocation, would be punished with a "bigger holocaust" from Israeli armed forces. "Israeli minister vows Palestinian 'holocaust'"
 
The tit-for-tat exchanges between militants firing rockets from Gaza and the Israeli armed forces trying to hit them and their commanders continued, with the Palestinian death toll reaching 31 since Wednesday. One Israeli has been killed in that period.
 
31-to-1 death toll. A typical ratio when Israel attacks Palestinians.
 
Even in armed conflicts (almost invariably started by Israel), the death disparity is amazing.
 
- In "Operation Pillar of Cloud":
 
1 Israeli soldier & 4 Israeli civilians killed.
 
1404 Palestinians injured & 174 Gazans killed.
 
In speaking of the massacre, Israeli Interior Minister Eli Yishai quite revealingly insisted "The goal is to send Gaza back to the Middle Ages."

The Israeli government claims Jaradat died of a heart attack, but Palestinians say he succumbed to wounds sustained during a brutal torture. Asfour died from wounds sustained when Israeli troops shot him in the head with a rubber-coated bullet.

Arresting and torturing children
 
- "Israel arrests 700 Palestinian children every year and tortures 90% of them," Middle East Monitor, 19 July 2012
 
- "Israel subjects Palestinian minors to solitary confinement," Middle East Children's Alliance, 17 April 2013
 
Evidence collected by Defence for Children International Palestine since January 2013 suggests that Israeli authorities increasingly subject Palestinian teenagers to solitary confinement for interrogation purposes.
 
Since January 2013 [until April 2013], Israeli authorities have held at least seven Palestinian youths, ages 16 to 17, in solitary confinement for periods ranging from 2 to 21 days, according to DCI-Palestine research. This amounts to one-third of the number of solitary confinement cases documented by DCI-Palestine in 2012, during which a total of 21 Palestinian youths, ages 14-17, were held in solitary confinement for anywhere from 4 to 29 days.
 
"Israeli interrogators isolate Palestinian kids in a small, filthy cell and shuffle them back and forth to interrogation over a period of several days, where they are pressured and coerced into providing a confession," said Ayed Abu Eqtaish, Accountability Program director at DCI-Palestine. "Israeli authorities must ban the use of solitary confinement for anyone under 18, no matter what the alleged conduct."
 
Since 2008, DCI-Palestine has documented 66 cases of solitary confinement used on Palestinian children. In the overwhelming majority of cases, children are held in solitary confinement while being subjected to repeated and prolonged interrogations, with the apparent purpose of obtaining a confession. During these interrogations, children report being forced to sit in a low metal chair secured to the floor of the room, with their hands and feet cuffed to the chair, often for several hours.
 
 
The detrimental psychological and physical effects of detaining persons in solitary confinement are well documented and include panic attacks, fear of impending death, depression, social withdrawal, a sense of hopelessness, unprovoked anger, short attention span, disorientation, paranoia, psychotic episodes, self-mutilation, and attempted suicide.
 
For these reasons, UN Special Rapporteur on Torture Juan Méndez called for a complete ban on the use of solitary confinement for children in a report submitted to the UN General Assembly in 2011. He concluded that the use of solitary confinement "can amount to torture or cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment, during pretrial detention, indefinitely or for a prolonged period, for persons with mental disabilities or juveniles."

- "UNICEF: Israel Abusing Detained Palestinian Children," Democracy Now!, 7 March 2013
 
The United Nations Children Fund, or UNICEF, is accusing Israel of systematically abusing Palestinian children in military custody. In a new report, UNICEF says Israeli forces have subjected detained Palestinian youths to "to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment" as defined by the U.N. Convention Against Torture. UNICEF special representative Jean Gough unveiled the report's findings.
 
Jean Gough:
 
We identified a pattern of ill-treatment when children are in military custody, and what we see is that this happens in the first 48 hours. Imagine a child sitting in front of an interrogator without sleeping. So that's very hard on the child, and that's difficult for him. So this is where we want to make the changes to make sure that that doesn't happen.
 
According to UNICEF figures, Israel arrests and interrogates around 700 Palestinian children aged 12 to 17 each year.

Segregation

Yes, the suggestion to segregate buses is disgusting. But it shouldn't overshadow the fact that, if we consider Israel/Palestine as one continuous territory under a system that privileges Jewish Israelis, there is already de facto bus segregation on the ground in occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank.

Bus lines created exclusively for Palestinians is another step in the fortification of the de facto system of segregation imposed by the Israeli government between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean.

Even early Zionists, even Ben-Gurion, Israel's first Prime Minister, admitted they "are the aggressors."
 
Ben-Gurion, Israel's first prime minister, on Palestine
 
(Related fact, Einstein, who was asked to be the first president of Israel, but denied it for various reasons, later rejected the state, because of its brutal ethnic cleansing policies.)
 
The funny thing is Israel doesn't even pretend that it cares about human rights. In January 2013, Israel "become the first country to boycott a U.N. Human Rights Council review of its record on human rights." "Israel Makes Landmark No-Show at U.N. Human Rights Council Session":
 
The acting president of the Human Rights Council convened the session in Geneva on Tuesday [29 January 2013], only to see that no Israeli representatives had shown up.
 
Remigiusz Henczel: "We were to convene this afternoon to proceed with the review of Israel; however, I see that the delegation of Israel is not in the room."
 
Israel severed contacts with the council last year after the body launched an investigation of illegal settlements in the occupied West Bank.
 
It's about time that it admitted it doesn't care about human rights. Everyone in the world (except for Americans) already knew. It goes without saying that this was implicitly admitting guilt, and saying pretending is not even worth the time.
 
Meanwhile, nonetheless, "Israel is the largest cumulative recipient of U.S. foreign assistance since World War II," the 111 April 2014 Congressional Research Service "U.S. Foreign Aid to Israel" report noted.
 
Hegemony is expensive.
 
The United States gives $3.5 billion to Apartheid Israel every year, enough to feed half the world's hungry children.
 
And we are alone in this support for an apartheid state.
 
This is a map of the global community that voted for Palestinian statehood.

And things are getting worse.

As Chomsky notes,
 
[Obama's] telling Netanyahu and the other Israeli leaders: I'll tap you on the wrist but go ahead and do what you like . … So in fact, Obama is actually the first president who hasn't really imposed restrictions on Israel.
 
As Ali Abunimah most, ahem, eloquently puts it:
 
There's not a thing Israel has seriously wanted that Obama has not done with balls on from Palestine on a silver plate to starving Iranians.

As Leila Khaled says,
 
It's not a peace process. It's a political process where the balance of forces is for Israelis and not for us.
 
Many complain the Palestinian Authority has done "little to no economic development." And although there are serious criticisms to be made of the Palestinian Authority, we must look at the reasons for this lack of development: persistent sanctions, attack, torture, and terrorism from without, certainly not a dearth of effort from within.
 
A list of more of Israel's human rights violations here, right in the NYT: "Why Palestine Should Take Israel to Court in The Hague."
 
There are plethoric other examples.

Links To The Protocols
 
 
The Protocols Of The Learned Elders Of Zion
 
 
 
The Jewish Power structure has long dismissed this work as a "forgery." 
 
Yet that is no dismissal at all, it is precisely what its original publisher, Philip Stepanov, claimed it was. 
 
He said that the work was an unauthorized copy of an original text, owned and maintained by a group of global Jewish elites that were using it as a blueprint for world domination. 
 
At any rate the events predicted in this book, first published in 1897 by Mr. Stepanov, have all come to pass. 
 
Perhaps Henry Ford put it best, when asked his assessment of The Protocols: "The only statement I care to make about The Protocols is that they fit in with what is going on."
 
If you want to know what's going on, if you want to make sense of the vast, destructive changes that have occurred in the White, Western nations over the last century, then you must read this book.

The 1492 Letter
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
In this instance " the protocols " mean the " draft of the plan of action " of the Jewish leaders. There have been many such drafts at different periods in Jewish history since the dispersion, but few of them have come into general circulation. In all, the principles and morality are as old as the tribe. By way of illustration we give an instance which occurred in the fifteenth century.
 
█  █  █  █  █  █  █  █  █  █  █  █  █  █  █  █  █  █  █  █  █  █  █  █  █  █  █  
 
In 1492, Chemor, chief Rabbi of Spain, wrote to the Grand Sanhedrin, which had its seat in Constantinople, for advice, when a Spanish law threatened expulsion.2 This was the reply:
 
" Beloved brethren in Moses, we have received your letter in which you tell us of the anxieties and misfortunes which you are enduring. We are pierced by as great pain to hear it as yourselves. The advice of the Grand Satraps and Rabbis is the following:
 
As for what you say that the King of Spain 3 obliges you to become Christians: do it, since you cannot do otherwise.
 
As for what you say about the command to despoil you of your property: make your sons merchants that they may despoil, little by little, the Christians of theirs.
 
As for what you say about making attempts on your lives: make your sons doctors and apothecaries, that they may take away Christians' lives.
 
As for what you say of their destroying your syna gogues: make your sons canons and clerics in order that they may destroy their churches.
 
As for the many other vexations you complain of: arrange that your sons become advocates and lawyers, and see that they always mix in affairs of State, that by putting Christians under your yoke you may dominate the world and be avenged on them.
 
Do not swerve from this order that we give you, because you will find by experience that, humiliated as you are, you will reach the actuality of power.
 
(Signed) PRINCE OF THE JEWS OF CONSTANTINOPLE."

The protocols given to the world by Nilus are only the latest known edition of the Jewish leaders programme. The story of how the latter came into general circulation is an interesting one.
 
In 1884 the daughter of a Russian general, Mile. Justine Glinka, was endeavouring to serve her country in Paris by obtaining political information, which she communicated to General Orgevskii4 in St. Petersburg. For this purpose she employed a Jew, Joseph Schorst,5 member of the Miz-raim Lodge in Paris. One day Schorst offered to obtain for her a document of great importance to Russia, on payment of 2,500 francs. This sum being received from St. Petersburg was paid over and the document handed to Mile. Glinka.6
 
She forwarded the French original, accompanied by a Russian translation, to Orgevskii, who in turn handed it to his chief, General Cherevin, for transmission to the Tsar. But Cherevin, under obligation to wealthy Jews, refused to transmit it, merely riling it in the archives.7
 
Meantime there appeared in Paris certain books on Russian court life8 which displeased the Tsar, who ordered his secret police to discover their authorship. This was falsely attributed, perhaps with malicious intent,9 to Mile. Glinka, and on her return to Russia she was banished to her estate in Orel. To the marechal de noblesse of this district, Alexis Sukhotin, Mile. Glinka gave a copy of the Protocols. Sukhotin showed the document to two friends, Stepanov and Nilus; the former had it printed and circulated privately in 1897; the second, Professor Sergius A. Nilus, published it for the first time in Tsarskoe-Tselo (Russia) in 1901, in a book entitled The Great Within the Small. Then, about the same time, a friend of Nilus, G. Butmi, also brought it out and a copy was deposited in the British Museum on August 10, 1906.
 
Meantime, through Jewish members10 of the Russian police, minutes of the proceedings of the Basle congress11 in 1897 had been obtained and these were found to correspond with the Protocols.12
 
In January 1917, Nilus had prepared a second edition, revised and documented, for publication. But before it could be put on the market, the revolution of March 1917 had taken place, and Kerenskii, who had succeeded to power, ordered the whole edition of Nilus's book to be destroyed. In 1924, Prof. Nilus was arrested by the Cheka in Kiev, imprisoned, and tortured; he was told by the Jewish president of the court, that this treatment was meted out to him for " having done them incalculable harm in publishing the Protocols ". Released for a few months, he was again led before the G. P. U. (Cheka), this time in Moscow and confined. Set at liberty in February 1926, he died in exile in the district of Vladimir on January 13, 1929.
 
A few copies of Nilus's second edition were saved and sent to other countries where they were published: in Germany, by Gottfreid zum Beek (1919); in England, by The Britons (1920); in France, by Mgr. Jouin in La Revue Internationale des Sociétés Secrètes, and by Urbain Gohier in La Vieille France; in the United States, by Small, Maynard & Co. (Boston 1920), and by The Beckwith Co (New York 1921). Later, editions appeared in Italian, Russian, Arabic, and even in Japanese.
 
Such is the simple story of how these Protocols reached Russia and thence came into general circulation.
 
Mr. Stepanov's deposition'3 relative to it is here given as corroboration.
 
" In 1895, my neighbour in the district of Toula, Major (retired) Alexis Sukhotin, gave me a manuscript copy of the Protocols of the Wise Men of Zion. He told me that a lady of his acquaintance, whose name he did not mention, residing in Paris, had found it at the house of a friend, a Jew. Before leaving Paris, she had secretly translated it and had brought this one copy to Russia and given it to Sukhotin.
 
"At first I mimeographed this translation, but finding it difficult to read, I resolved to have it printed, making no mention of the date, town, or printer's name. In this I was helped by Arcadii Ippolitovich Kelepovskii, who at that time was chief of the household of Grand Duke Sergius.
 
He gave the document to be printed by the district printing press. This took place in 1897. Sergius Nilus inserted these Protocols in his work and added his own commentary. (Signed) PHILIP PETROVICH STEPANOV."
 
Formerly Procurator of the Synod of Moscow, Chamberlain, Privy Councillor, and (in 1897) Chief of the Moscow Kursk Railway in the town of Orel. April 17, 1927.

America's Jews Are Driving U.S. Wars
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
September 25, 2017
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Shouldn't they recuse themselves when dealing with the Middle East?
 
■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■
 
On the morning of September 21st Phil Giraldi was fired over the phone by The American Conservative, where he had been a regular contributor for fourteen years. He was told that "America's Jews Are Driving America's Wars" was unacceptable. The TAC management and board appear to have forgotten that the magazine was launched with an article by founder Pat Buchanan entitled "Whose War?" which largely made the same claims that Giraldi made about the Jewish push for another war, in that case with Iraq. Buchanan was vilified and denounced as an anti-Semite by many of the same people who are now similarly attacking Giraldi.
 
■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■
 
September 19, 2017
 
 
 
I spoke recently at a conference on America's war party where afterwards an elderly gentleman came up to me and asked, "Why doesn't anyone ever speak honestly about the six-hundred-pound gorilla in the room? Nobody has mentioned Israel in this conference and we all know it's American Jews with all their money and power who are supporting every war in the Middle East for Netanyahu? Shouldn't we start calling them out and not letting them get away with it?"
 
It was a question combined with a comment that I have heard many times before and my answer is always the same: any organization that aspires to be heard on foreign policy knows that to touch the live wire of Israel and American Jews guarantees a quick trip to obscurity. Jewish groups and deep pocket individual donors not only control the politicians, they own and run the media and entertainment industries, meaning that no one will hear about or from the offending party ever again. They are particularly sensitive on the issue of so-called "dual loyalty," particularly as the expression itself is a bit of a sham since it is pretty clear that some of them only have real loyalty to Israel.
 
Most recently, some pundits, including myself, have been warning of an impending war with Iran. To be sure, the urging to strike Iran comes from many quarters, to include generals in the Administration who always think first in terms of settling problems through force, from a Saudi government obsessed with fear over Iranian hegemony, and, of course, from Israel itself. But what makes the war engine run is provided by American Jews who have taken upon themselves the onerous task of starting a war with a country that does not conceivably threaten the United States. They have been very successful at faking the Iranian threat, so much so that nearly all Republican and most Democratic congressmen as well as much of the media seem to be convinced that Iran needs to be dealt with firmly, most definitely by using the U.S. military, and the sooner the better.
 
And while they are doing it, the issue that nearly all the Iran haters are Jewish has somehow fallen out of sight, as if it does not matter. But it should matter. A recent article in the New Yorker on stopping the impending war with Iran strangely suggests that the current generation "Iran hawks" might be a force of moderation regarding policy options given the lessons learned from Iraq. The article cites as hardliners on Iran David Frum, Max Boot, Bill Kristol and Bret Stephens.
 
Daniel Larison over at The American Conservative has a good review of the New Yorker piece entitled "Yes, Iran Hawks Want Conflict with Iran," which identifies the four above cited hawks by name before describing them as "…a Who's Who of consistently lousy foreign policy thinking. If they have been right about any major foreign policy issue in the last twenty years, it would be news to the entire world. Every single one of them hates the nuclear deal with Iran with a passion, and they have argued in favor of military action against Iran at one point or another. There is zero evidence that any of them would oppose attacking Iran."
 
And I would add a few more names, Mark Dubowitz, Michael Ledeen and Reuel Marc Gerecht of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies; Daniel Pipes of the Middle East Forum; John Podhoretz of Commentary magazine; Elliot Abrams of the Council on Foreign Relations; Meyrav Wurmser of the Middle East Media Research Institute; Kimberly Kagan of the Institute for the Study of War; and Frederick Kagan, Danielle Pletka and David Wurmser of the American Enterprise Institute. And you can also throw into the hopper entire organizations like The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP) and the Hudson Institute. And yep, they're all Jewish, plus most of them would self-describe as neo-conservatives. And I might add that only one of the named individuals has ever served in any branch of the American military - David Wurmser was once in the Navy reserve. These individuals largely constitute a cabal of sanctimonious chairborne warriors who prefer to do the heavy thinking while they let others do the fighting and dying.
 
So it is safe to say that much of the agitation to do something about Iran comes from Israel and from American Jews. Indeed, I would opine that most of the fury from Congress re Iran comes from the same source, with AIPAC showering our Solons on the Potomac with "fact sheets" explaining how Iran is worthy of annihilation because it has pledged to "destroy Israel," which is both a lie and an impossibility as Tehran does not have the resources to carry out such a task. The AIPAC lies are then picked up and replayed by an obliging media, where nearly every "expert" who speaks about the Middle East on television and radio or who is interviewed for newspaper stories is Jewish.
 
One might also add that neocons as a group were founded by Jews and are largely Jewish, hence their universal attachment to the state of Israel. They first rose into prominence when they obtained a number of national security positions during the Reagan Administration and their ascendancy was completed when they staffed senior positions in the Pentagon and White House under George W. Bush. Recall for a moment Paul Wolfowitz, Doug Feith, and Scooter Libby. Yes, all Jewish and all conduits for the false information that led to a war that has spread and effectively destroyed much of the Middle East. Except for Israel, of course. Philip Zelikow, also Jewish, in a moment of candor, admitted that the Iraq War, in his opinion, was fought for Israel.
 
Add to the folly a Jewish U.S. Ambassador to Israel who identifies with the most right-wing Israeli settler elements, a White House appointed chief negotiator who is Jewish and a Jewish son-in-law who is also involved in formulating Middle East policy. Is anyone providing an alternative viewpoint to eternal and uncritical support for Benjamin Netanyahu and his kleptocratic regime of racist thugs? I think not.
 
There are a couple of simple fixes for the dominant involvement of American Jews in foreign policy issues where they have a personal interest due to their ethnicity or family ties. First of all, don't put them into national security positions involving the Middle East, where they will potentially be conflicted. Let them worry instead about North Korea, which does not have a Jewish minority and which was not involved in the holocaust. This type of solution was, in fact, somewhat of a policy regarding the U.S. Ambassador position in Israel. No Jew was appointed to avoid any conflict of interest prior to 1995, an understanding that was violated by Bill Clinton (wouldn't you know it!) who named Martin Indyk to the post. Indyk was not even an American citizen at the time and had to be naturalized quickly prior to being approved by congress.
 
Those American Jews who are strongly attached to Israel and somehow find themselves in senior policy making positions involving the Middle East and who actually possess any integrity on the issue should recuse themselves, just as any judge would do if he were presiding over a case in which he had a personal interest. Any American should be free to exercise first amendment rights to debate possible options regarding policy, up to and including embracing positions that damage the United States and benefit a foreign nation. But if he or she is in a position to actually create those policies, he or she should butt out and leave the policy generation to those who have no personal baggage.
 
For those American Jews who lack any shred of integrity, the media should be required to label them at the bottom of the television screen whenever they pop up, e.g. Bill Kristol is "Jewish and an outspoken supporter of the state of Israel." That would be kind-of-like a warning label on a bottle of rat poison - translating roughly as "ingest even the tiniest little dosage of the nonsense spewed by Bill Kristol at your own peril."
 
As none of the above is likely to happen, the only alternative is for American citizens who are tired of having their country's national security interests hijacked by a group that is in thrall to a foreign government to become more assertive about what is happening. Shine a little light into the darkness and recognize who is being diddled and by whom. Call it like it is. And if someone's feelings are hurt, too bad. We don't need a war with Iran because Israel wants one and some rich and powerful American Jews are happy to deliver. Seriously, we don't need it.
