CUTTINF AID TO ZIO-NAZI’S QUICKLY IS A WISDOM

NOVANEWS

Cutting aid to Israel is quickly becoming conventional wisdom

Posted: 31 Mar 2010 08:36 AM PDT

Business Week writer Celestine Bohlen makes a case for cutting US financial ties with Israel:

The advantages for the U.S. are obvious: It would save money at a time when the federal debt is zooming out of sight. The sums aren’t great — a drop compared with the $1.4 trillion budget deficit in fiscal 2009 — but it would take some of the sting out of Israel’s stubborn opposition to U.S. policies. Severing the financial links could also correct the perception that the U.S., as Israel’s patron, can’t be an honest broker in the Middle East.

That assumption, widely held in the Arab world, was put on the record by General David Petraeus, head of the U.S. military’s Central Command, when he told the U.S. Congress that the festering Israeli-Palestinian conflict “foments anti- American sentiment due to a perception of U.S. favoritism toward Israel.”

Similar words have been used by James L. Jones, the U.S. national security adviser, and Defense Secretary Robert Gates.

The message is clear: Failure to reach a peace agreement with the Palestinians isn’t just about Israel anymore. It’s about U.S. national-security interests.

And she ends with a zinger:

Back in 2007, when U.S. President George W. Bush pushed through a 10-year military aid agreement with Israel, Nicholas Burns, then undersecretary of state, said the U.S. considered the cumulative $30 billion in assistance to Israel “to be an investment in peace — in long-term peace.”

Now may be a good time to check the return on that investment

Westboro Bigots Disrepect Marines and Ameircan Troops

Westboro Bigots Disrepect Marines and Ameircan Troops –

Veterans Today says support the Marine Dad, Al Snyder Legal Fund against idiots who disrupt Marine and U.S. troop funerals in an outrageous show of disrespect for killed-in-action servicemen and women.
Update: For supporters wishing to snail-mail contributions:

Al Snyder Fund [make out check/money order to “Al Snyder Fund”]
c/o Barley Snyder LLC
100 East Market Street
York, PA 17401

Just off the phone with Snyder’s people in York, Penn; they send their warmest appreciation for the support! “[Lance Cpl Matthew Snyder] was a hero and he was the love of my life,” said Albert Snyder, Matthew’s father who is still steaming at these idiots pictured at left, and whose legal fees ($16,500) Mr. Snyder has been ordered to pay.

Snyder’s funeral service was disrupted by the Westboro Baptist Church and now Snyder has to pay these idiots’ court costs, per a court ruling. Support the Marine Dad, Al Snyder Legal Fund. Al Snyder will not give up without a fight, in memory of his son’s service.

Lance Cpl Matthew Snyder, of Finksburg, Maryland, died in Al Anbar province, Iraq. He was assigned to Combat Service Support Group-1, 1st Marine Logistics Group, I Marine Expeditionary Force, Twentynine Palms, California. Died on March 3, 2006. Matthew was 20 years old.

The Topeka, Kan.-based Westboro Baptist Church, led by the Rev. Fred Phelps, say combat deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan are God’s retribution for America’s tolerance of gay men and lesbian women, and they make their message know by disrupting funerals of servicemen and women who were killed in combat, during which they chant and hold signs bearing messages such as ‘Thank God For Dead Soldiers.’ See Bob Higgins’ Marine Dad Must Pay Westboro Court Fees.

Support the Marine Dad, Al Snyder Legal Fund. These pricks aren’t going to know what hit them.

How the Zionist lobby should be treated (with noise)

Posted: 24 Mar 2010

Go girls:

WASHINGTON – March 23 – Shortly after announcing Israel’s commitment to defense in his address to the annual American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) Gala, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was disrupted by a demonstrator.

Rae Abileah, 27, from Half Moon Bay, CA, jumped onto AIPAC Executive Director Howard Kohr’s private table alongside the stage and unfurled a pink banner that said “Netanyahu: Build Peace Not Settlements!” Abileah shouted, “Lift the siege of Gaza! No illegal settlements!” as she was forcefully removed from the building. A second disruption came moments later from Joan Stallard, from Washington, DC, who shouted, “Stop the settlements!”

Today, Tuesday, March 23, at noon CODEPINK is planning to build a settlement (including homes and beds) inside Senator Schumer’s and Senator Lieberman’s offices (Hart Senate Building, offices 313 and 706). CODEPINK’s protests of the policies of AIPAC during their national conference this week have included daily morning protests, staging of a checkpoint for attendees, an afternoon press conference announcing the launch of a city-wide boycott of products illegally made in the settlements, and the release this morning of a spoof press release from AIPAC announcing that the organization was calling for a settlement freeze.

American Jewish peace activists are outraged at the influence that AIPAC has on U.S. policy. “AIPAC supports policies of aggression that damage Israel’s reputation, harm innocent Palestinians, and contribute to making America less safe in the world,” said Jewish-American activist Medea Benjamin of CODEPINK.”

CODEPINK is a women-initiated grassroots peace and social justice movement working to end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, stop new wars, and redirect our resources into healthcare, education, green jobs and other life-affirming activities.

CODEPINK rejects foreign policies based on domination and aggression, and instead calls for policies based on diplomacy, compassion and a commitment to international law. With an emphasis on joy and humor, CODEPINK women and men seek to activate, amplify and inspire a community of peacemakers through creative campaigns and a commitment to non-violence.

NO TO $ 30 BILLION IN MILITARY ASSISTANCE TO THE ZIO=NAZI REGIME

NOVANEWS

Way Forward for U.S.-Israel: ‘You know that $30 billion in military assistance … ‘
by Michael Leon

Isarael Says ‘No’Brilliant analysis by Phyllis Bennis.

by Phyllis Bennis

So far the requests [by President Obama to Prime Minister Netanyahu] have gone like this:

* Obama: Please freeze settlements.
Netanyahu: No.

* Obama: Please freeze settlements.
* Netanyahu: No.

* Obama: Please freeze some settlements.
* Netanyahu: No.

* Obama: Please freeze just a few settlements, not including Jerusalem, just for a short time.
* Netanyahu: Well, maybe…No.
Then Obama stopped asking. Real pressure sounds like this:

Obama: Please freeze all the settlements, since they’re all illegal under international law, as a reasonable first step towards ending the occupation. Netanyahu: No.
Obama: Okay. Then you know that $30 billion in military assistance former President Bush agreed to give you, and I agreed to implement? You can kiss that goodbye. Call me if you change your mind.

The tensions that erupted during Vice President Biden’s visit to Israel a couple of weeks ago are indeed real. Biden and the Obama administration see the Israeli action as a slap in the face, a poke in the eye, a smack upside the head…choose your preferred metaphor. The problem is, Washington’s outrage was 90 percent about timing, and only 10 percent about substance – that is, the administration was insulted because the announcement that Israel had just approved building 1,600 new settlement housing units in occupied Arab East Jerusalem surprised Biden during his visit. Only about 10 percent of the concern seemed to focus on the settlement expansion itself.

But the dust-up occurred while the Obama administration faces new challenges to its Middle East policy. In the region Arab allies have pulled away from Washington, recognizing that they can no longer pacify furious populations. The Arab League refused to endorse Palestinian participation in a new round of “proximity talks,” and the U.S.-backed Palestinian Authority itself said no talks without a complete settlement freeze.

In Washington there is a growing chorus of influential voices finally admitting that the longstanding U.S. policy of uncritical embrace of Israel, with unchallenged military, economic, legal and diplomatic support and protection, wasn’t serving U.S. interests. That means considering the possibility – gasp! – that maybe, just maybe, Israeli and U.S. interests aren’t always identical.

Now the Pentagon’s most influential general, David Petraeus, has admitted that the widespread public view of the U.S. as Israel’s backer in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict undermines U.S. strategic goals in the region- widely interpreted to mean it puts U.S. troops at risk. He is backed up by Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, as well as Biden.

A no-brainer, yes, for any high-schooler paying attention to a current events lesson. But that obvious strategic reality has almost never been acknowledged by military leaders, who have in the past been unwilling to challenge their civilian counterparts’ pro-Israeli assumptions and strategies, even if they didn’t share them. (It should be clear that Petraeus’ own framework for criticizing the U.S.-Israeli “special relationship” has nothing to do with international law, human rights, or justice – it is a military judgment aimed at strengthening the U.S. military occupations and control of the strategic region.)

And it’s not only the military and political elites. A new Zogby pollindicates that almost two-thirds of Democrats believe in the statement “Israeli settlements are built on land confiscated from Palestinians and should be torn down and the land returned to Palestinian owners.” Within the Jewish community, AIPAC can no longer claim that it’s speaking for a monolithic Jewish bloc. (There never was such a bloc, of course, but few were willing to challenge AIPAC’s claim to speak for it.) The shift in elite opinion sets the terms for policy changes once thought impossible.

Some Israeli leaders are already recognizing the new discourse in Washington. The influential Israeli analyst Akiva Eldar wrote in Ha’aretzthat “as far as President Barack Obama and his senior advisers are concerned, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is to blame for nothing less than damaging the standing of the U.S. in the Middle East and the Muslim world.” That’s a lot worse than just being blamed for the delay in starting a new round of so-called “proximity talks.”

Influential New York Times columnist Tom Friedman, long viewed as an echo chamber for Washington’s mainstream pro-Israel voices, weighed in with the new admission that for Israelis, peace with the Palestinians is not a necessity but has become a hobby. Newsweek noted that Israelis are dismissing the need for peace with the Palestinians because they already have it on their own terms: “While the global recession plunged other countries into crisis in the past year, nearly all of Israel’s indicators have held steady. Tourism, a good gauge of overall welfare, hit a 10-year high in 2008.

Astonishingly, the IMF projected recently that Israel’s GDP will grow faster in 2010 than that of most other developed countries. In short, Israelis are enjoying a peace dividend without a peace agreement…Israelis have intellectually disengaged from peacemaking.”

Certainly Israelis are doing fine with the status quo. There are few Israeli victims, and indeed the occupation doesn’t affect their daily lives. But that reality is already changing, as the international BDS (boycott, divestment and sanctions) campaigns are gaining strength and beginning to bite. The BDS movement, launched in a global call from Palestinian civil society in 2005, is transforming how Israel – and the rest of the world – define Palestinian resistance to occupation and apartheid.

Although the core of Palestinian resistance has always included nonviolent mobilization, acts of armed resistance over the years largely determined how that movement was perceived. The BDS movement, along with the turn away from armed struggle by resistance organizations in recent years, is rapidly changing that perception.

Israel’s international diplomatic isolation is growing as well. In last week’s Human Rights Council decisions, only the U.S. voted to protect Israel from the otherwise unanimous support for “the inalienable, permanent and unqualified right of the Palestinian people to self-determination, including their right to live in freedom, justice and dignity and to establish their sovereign, independent, democratic and viable contiguous State.”

The council also reaffirmed its “support for the solution of two States, Palestine and Israel, living side by side in peace and security; stresses the need for respect for and preservation of the territorial unity, contiguity and integrity of all of the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem; and urges all Member States and relevant bodies of the United Nations system to support and assist the Palestinian people in the early realization of their right to self-determination.” The wide European support for this resolution was particularly significant, given the current negotiations underway to allow Israel to join key European institutions.

The question now is whether the Obama administration is prepared to recognize that there is a new reality at home as well as in the region. Whatever we may think of the past, holding Israel accountable for violations of international and U.S. law is no longer tantamount to political suicide in Washington. We haven’t yet seen evidence of any such recognition.

Despite real anger regarding the settlement issue, the administration’s response has been limited to verbal criticism and demands (albeit far harsher in tone than normal). It’s as if someone told Obama and his top officials that simply upping the ante of requests is enough to bring Israel around. But they were wrong.

LAND DAY VIOLENT IN GAZA

NOVANEWS

Diaphanous clouds of smoke moved to and fro in the wind above a group of Palestinian youth, waving Palestinian flags, standing on top of a promontory. Beyond it lay the Israeli border. I was near the Nahal Oz crossing, close to where Israel brings diesel fuel into the Gaza Strip.

It was Land Day. The sharp pop and crack of bullets flying through the air grew louder as I drew closer to the group of shebab and cameramen on the low ridge, maybe 300 meters from the border.

The smoke was from tires or garbage bags set aflame, or grass on which someone had tossed a match. The smoke gave the confrontation the look of a war-zone. It looked like what it was. On the far side of the border were several IDF jeeps, at least two Merkava tanks, looming, their turrets pointed at the group of fired-up Palestinians. There was also a Hammer, an electronic monitoring vehicle that can hear conversations at a great distance.

Other Palestinian youths were much closer to the border, 200 meters, or 100 meters. All were bravely waving Palestinian flags. They were there to commemorate Land Day. Land Day in Palestine is celebrated on March 30, an annual commemoration of the events of that day in 1976.

In response to the Israeli government’s announcement of its plan to expropriate thousands of dunums—a dunum is a quarter acre—of land, Palestinians had a general strike, and there were thousands of marches in Arab towns across the breadth of Palestine. In confrontations with the Israeli army, six Palestinian citizens of Israel were killed by the IDF.

The demonstration I was at was “calm”: no one was shot and bullets were restricted to warning shots, 10 or 20 meters away, as Palestinian youths huddled behind a rock for safety 60 meters in front of me. For them, the Israeli sniper bullets may not have been warning shots. Other demonstrators were less fortunate. News agencies reported between 9 and 16 injuries.

Eva Bartlett writes:
Four non-violent demonstrators were shot at close range with live ammunition by Israeli soldiers during six simultaneous protests throughout the Gaza Strip commemorating “Land Day”.

Three of those injured come from Khoza’a, a village east of Khan Younis in Gaza’s south. The fourth, from Deir al Balah, was participating in a peaceful demonstration east of Meghazi, central Gaza.

The Khoza’a demonstration neared the border shortly after 12 noon. Israeli jeeps stopped along the Green Line border, their number increasing quickly. Israeli soldiers exited their jeeps and assumed sniper positions on a raised dirt mound and along the border fence.

Jemah Najjar, 22, was the first to fasten a Palestinian flag to the border fence in today’s demonstration. He was also the first injured in the Khoza’a region, roughly 10 minutes after he had placed the flag on the fence, he estimates.

Israeli soldiers repeatedly opened fire on the very visibly unarmed demonstrators, without any verbal warning, nor without warning shots in the air.

Pieces of the IOF bullet which struck Jemah Najjar are still lodged in his head. He will require an operation to remove them, if it is possible.

These are non-violent protests. Organizers here are telling us that Bilin could never have become what it is without the accompanying mediatic support. Right now the non-violent protests in Gaza, next week re-commencing daily, need that support. The NYT and the Washington Post will note these protests when they are shamed into it. Let’s shame them.

IS THE ZIONIST GOT REAL PROBLEM ?

NOVANEWS

On Monday (March 29 2010) Netanyahu was quick to publicly admonish his inner circle for telling Yediot that

“President Obama and Hillary Clinton have toed the line and have adopted a patently Palestinian line. We’re talking about something that is diseased and insane. The situation is catastrophic. We have a problem with a very, very hostile administration. There’s never been anything like this before. Even veteran officials who tended to the relations with the United States say that there’s never been an administration like this one before.

This president wants to establish the Palestinian state and he wants to give them Jerusalem.” and “We’ve got a real problem. You could say that Obama is the greatest disaster for Israel, a strategic disaster. It isn’t only Israel that is worried about Obama, but leaders throughout the entire world are worried about him: Merkel, Berlusconi, even the Russians. Obama is damaging to the State of Israel, no matter which leader is facing him.”

Judging by the interview his National Security Council chief, Major General (Res.) Uzi Dayan, gave to IDF Radio this morning (March 31 2010), Netanyahu was criticizing the tone, not substance. Here’s some of what Dayan had to say (full transcript below):

In our case, we should tell the US President, “no, we can’t” because you start addressing issues that do not only stand for Israeli interests and values, and we are not only right about them, but we are also wise because they do not benefit the issue at hand. […]

Furthermore, we have a real crisis with the US policy because it is appeasing and one-sided.[…]

Look, I believe he [Netanyahu] is saying that [also], but he is justifiably more cautious than I am. I believe that the stand I am expressing here is not only the Likud view, but it is actually upheld by the majority in the Septet [Netanyahu’s kitchen cabinet] and I believe that the prime minister would agree with the things I said here too.

Interview with Zio-Nazi NSC Chief Uzi Dayan

Zio-Nazi Radio, March 31 2010 09:13

Narrator Razi Barkai: We wish to discuss these issues with Uzi Dayan, a major general in the reserves, former [IDF] deputy chief of staff, and current head of the National Security Council (NSC) and, I must say, No. 42 on the Likud Knesset list. Good morning, Mr. Dayan. We should not have been surprised. At the conclusion of the Taba talks of 2002, we had the Clinton paper in which he said something that all the American presidents since adopted — whatever is Arab, is Palestinian; and whatever is Jewish, is Israeli — and he was referring to Jerusalem. Why are we stunned when it suddenly happens again?

Dayan: We are not stunned, but it is simply time for us to say, “no.” Every nation has moments when it has to say “no” even to its friends, including strategic friends. I think it is time for us to tell the USA and mainly its President, “no more.”

Dayan

Barkai: Listen, [Haaretz correspondent] Ari Shavit said — and this has not yet been stated publically, except if it were raised in meetings one-on-one — that if you say “no” to the Americans (and you will soon tell us what we say “no” to), the Americans can start taking very small, secret, and painful steps such as, for example, delaying all kinds of weapon shipment, start questioning the $3 billion in aid we receive every year, or start poking us with all kids of small knives on international arenas such as the United Nations. Does this not bother you?

Dayan: Of course it does. The USA is not only our primary strategic ally, but it also has the power [to do these things]. That is correct. Still, even among friends there are lines you do not cross, which we should say politely but clearly. In our case, we should tell the US President, “no, we can’t” because you start addressing issues that do not only stand for Israeli interests and values, and we are not only right about them, but we are also wise because they do not benefit the issue at hand.

Look, there were two prominent leaders in our history who said “no” to the United States: Ben-Gurion, when he decided to declare Israel’s independence even though Washington was against it; and Menachem Begin, when facing that trilogy of the bombing of the Iraqi reactor, the attack in Lebanon, and the annexation of the Golan Heights. Now, we reached this state of affairs, which is not joyous of course, but a nation should know when to say “no.”
Furthermore, we have a real crisis with the US policy because it is appeasing and one-sided. Look, what happened recently? We agreed to the solution of two states for two nations even though the Palestinians refused to acknowledge the right of the Jewish nation and despite the situation in Gaza, which lends itself at best to three states for two nations; and I am being cynical here. In addition, we froze construction works in Judea and Samaria, which was never done before; and we agreed to hold indirect negotiations with US involvement. Let me remind you that when I was personally involved in the process, the Americans were not even in the room with us.

Barkai: So what are we saying no to — the Jerusalem issue?

Dayan: Yes, to the Jerusalem issue. You know what? Let me add something here. What did we gain from making these concessions? We only received more and more demands. It is time for us to say “no” and insist on negotiations without preconditions. As for Jerusalem…it is so self evident.

Barkai: The Americans say to that: Great! Let’s go for direct negotiations without preconditions, but as we discuss the negotiations and while we conduct them, not facts shall be established on the ground. One of those facts established, which the Palestinians find incredibly intolerable, is construction in Jerusalem. You want to come to the table and say Jerusalem is entirely ours, and the Jewish neighborhoods of Jerusalem are ours, and Jerusalem will remain ours in the permanent agreement? Fine. But do not establish facts while you are negotiating.

Subject: Please support EDM 1079 – Muslims in Britain

SAMMI IBRAHEM

Dear Gisela Stuart, MP
I am writing to ask you to sign EDM 1079 – Muslims in Britain, which is below.

The motion follows a growing number of articles demonising Muslims in sections of the media. Against this backdrop, we are witnessing a concerning rise in violent attacks on Muslims and the growth of extreme right-wing organisations including the English Defence League, which recently marched on Parliament inciting hatred and demanding the closure of the East London Mosque.

I believe that the targeting of communities in this way risks creating a climate of fear and division in society, and undermining civil liberties and the right to freedom of expression. The motion welcomes the contribution of Muslim communities and their full participation in British society, including in politics.

Please sign this EDM and for more information on the One Society Many Cultures campaign contact onesocietymanycultures@googlemail.com

The EDM reads as follows:

“That this House opposes the increased demonisation of Muslims in sections of the media; expresses its deep concern at the recent visit to the House of Lords by the far right politician Geert Wilders; condemns the English Defence League demonstration outside Parliament in support of Geert Wilders and their slogans and placards inciting hatred, such as their demand for the closure of the East London Mosque, that will only lead to a climate of fear, division and disharmony; welcomes the participation and contribution of Muslims in British society, including in politics; believes that the full participation of all communities in the forthcoming general election is in the interests of democracy.”

Yours sincerely,

JERUSALEM QUARTET

NOVANEWS

WEDO and JQ overlap
There is now a Guardian website report on the disruption of a Jerusalem Quartet performance at the Wigmore Hall in London. I’m sure you can read more about it at Tony Greenstein’s blog @ (www.azvsas.blogspot.com) because he gets a big mention in the piece:

It’s difficult to imagine a more pacific backwater than the genteel Wigmore Hall, London’s most prestigious chamber-music venue – but that peace was abruptly disturbed when anti-Israel demonstrators disrupted a concert given by the Jerusalem Quartet on Monday lunchtime. Wigmore Hall director John Gilhooly told Classical Music magazine: “The demonstration was evidently extremely well planned.

The protesters must have bought their tickets for the concert a long time ago, because they were all sitting in individual seats in different parts of the hall. One stood up and started singing and shouting, and while we were removing him, another one started up somewhere else, and so on.”

One of the protesters, Tony Greenstein, wrote on his blog: “I stood up . . . and proceeded to tell the Jerusalem Quartet that they were the cultural ambassadors of apartheid Israel and its army whom they perform for.” Supporters of the quartet highlight the fact that its cellist, Kyril Zlotnikov, works with the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, which was founded by Daniel Barenboim and Edward Said to include both Israeli and Arab young musicians, and point out that military service is compulsory in Israel.

The quartet’s live broadcast on Radio 3 was truncated and replaced with a performance by the Salomon Quartet. But the Jerusalem Quartet’s recital eventually continued. “The atmosphere in the hall was very tense,” said Gilhooly.

It was me that added the link to Tony’s blog. The Guardian only linked to the Classical music magazine. But did you see that stuff about Kyril Zlotnikov? He works with the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, which was founded by Daniel Barenboim and Edward Said to include both Israeli and Arab young musicians don’t you know? Was this really such a hard case?

Cutting aid to Israel is quickly becoming conventional wisdom

Business Week writer Celestine Bohlen makes a case for cutting US financial ties with Israel:

The advantages for the U.S. are obvious: It would save money at a time when the federal debt is zooming out of sight. The sums aren’t great — a drop compared with the $1.4 trillion budget deficit in fiscal 2009 — but it would take some of the sting out of Israel’s stubborn opposition to U.S. policies.

Severing the financial links could also correct the perception that the U.S., as Israel’s patron, can’t be an honest broker in the Middle East.

That assumption, widely held in the Arab world, was put on the record by General David Petraeus, head of the U.S. military’s Central Command, when he told the U.S. Congress that the festering Israeli-Palestinian conflict “foments anti- American sentiment due to a perception of U.S. favoritism toward Israel.”

Similar words have been used by James L. Jones, the U.S. national security adviser, and Defense Secretary Robert Gates.

Now may be a good time to check the return on that investment.
