This day in Jewish history — Mobster Dutch Schultz killed

NOVANEWS

Dutch Schultz

Haaretz

On this day in 1935, mobster Dutch Schultz was shot to death, together with two of his henchmen, at the Palace Chop House and Tavern, in Newark, New Jersey. Schultz, an important bootlegger during Prohibition (1920-1933) and a major player in the numbers and protection rackets, was known as an especially ruthless and stubborn criminal. It was fear of his headstrong nature that led “The Commission,” the umbrella organization of organized-crime families in the United States, to have him murdered.

Dutch Schultz was born Arthur Simon Flegenheimer in New York in 1901, the son of German Jewish immigrants. He is said to have taken his nickname from the Schultz trucking company, his employer before he went into business on his own. Flegenheimer felt he needed a working name that “was short enough to fit in the headlines,” as he himself put it. His hauling work led naturally into bootlegging, and after he became an independent beer merchant, he expanded his business from the Bronx into Manhattan.

When Prohibition ended, Schultz moved into numbers, betting derived from the results of horse races. He was fortunate to have an accountant who knew how to rig the contests so that his boss would have better-than-average odds. From this he expanded into the protection racket with New York restaurant owners. His business success earned him the attention of special state prosecutor (and later New York governor) Thomas E. Dewey, who had Schultz indicted for tax evasion. Although was acquitted, he knew it was only a matter of time before the authorities would pursue further charges against him.

Schultz’s only time behind bars had been at age 17, after he was caught breaking into an apartment, and he wasn’t about to be incarcerated again. So he came up with the idea of murdering Dewey, and asked The Commission, whose Italian crime bosses allowed Jews something of an auxiliary membership, for permission to carry it out. When permission was denied (by a unanimous vote), he accused his colleagues of being out to take over his business and vowed to go ahead with Dewey’s killing on his own.

It was at this point that his colleagues on The Commission decided that Dutch Schultz was too dangerous to remain alive, and a team of hit men, working for Louis “Lucky” Buchalter’s Murder Inc., was given the order to carry out his killing. (Ironically, once Schultz was gone, Dewey went after The Commission’s head, Charles “Lucky” Luciano. In June 1936, he was convicted on 62 counts related to prostitution, and sentenced to 30-50 years in state prison.)

When the killers entered the Chop House, which doubled as Schultz’s office, they found three of his colleagues at his table, but had to track him to the men’s room, where they shot him while he was urinating. Badly injured, Shultz staggered back to his table and collapsed.

Medics took him to a hospital, where he died the following evening after surgery – though not before asking for and receiving last rites from a priest. Schultz, it turned out, had become a believing Catholic during his trial. He was given a Catholic funeral, but his mother arranged for him to be buried in a tallit. His three colleagues also died. Although Schultz told police he did not know who shot him, Charles “Bugs” Workman was eventually convicted of the crime.

IsraHell’s formula for a starvation diet

Gaza malnutrition

How 400 trucks to feed Gaza became just 67

By Jonathan Cook

in Nazareth

Jonathan Cook views evidence that Israel is waging a policy of controlled starvation against Gaza’s Palestinians as part of a strategy to refashion society in Gaza “to accept its subjugation through a combination of violence, poverty, malnutrition and a permanent struggle over limited resources”.

Six and a half years go, shortly after Hamas won the Palestinian national elections and took charge 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.”

Although Dov Weisglass was adviser to Ehud Olmert, the prime minister of the day, few observers treated his comment as more than hyperbole, a supposedly droll characterization of the blockade Israel was about to impose on the tiny enclave.

Last week, however, the evidence finally emerged to prove that this did indeed become Israeli policy. After a three-year legal battle by an Israeli human rights group, Israel was forced to disclose its so-called “Red Lines” document. Drafted in early 2008, as the blockade was tightened still further, the Defence Ministry paper set forth proposals on how to treat Hamas-ruled Gaza.

The Israeli media have tried to present these chilling discussions, held in secret, in the best light possible. Even the liberal Haaretznewspaper euphemistically described this extreme form of calorie-counting as designed to “make sure Gaza didn’t starve”.

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 have tried to present these chilling discussions, held in secret, in the best light possible. Even the liberal Haaretznewspaper 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 small print. While the Health Ministry determined that Gazans needed daily an average of 2,279 calories each to avoid malnutrition – requiring 170 trucks a day – military officials then found a host of pretexts to whittle down the trucks to a fraction of the original figure.

The reality was that, in this period, an average of only 67 trucks – much less than half of the minimum requirement – entered Gaza daily. This compared to more than 400 trucks before the blockade began.

To achieve this large reduction, officials deducted trucks based both on an over-generous assessment of how much food could be grown locally and on differences in the ”culture and experience” of food consumption in Gaza, a rationale never explained.

Gisha, the organization that fought for the document’s publication, observes that Israeli officials ignored the fact that the blockade had severely impaired Gaza’s farming industry, with a shortage of seeds and chickens that had led to a dramatic drop in food output.

UN staff too have noted that Israel failed to factor in the large quantity of food from each day’s supply of 67 trucks that never actually reached Gaza. That was because Israeli restrictions at the crossings created long delays as food was unloaded, checked and then put on to new trucks. Many items spoiled as they lay in the sun.

And on top of this, Israel further adjusted the formula so that the number of trucks carrying nutrient-poor sugar were doubled while the trucks carrying milk, fruit and vegetables were greatly reduced, sometimes by as much as a half.

Robert Turner, director of the UN refugee agency’s operations in the Gaza Strip, has observed: “The facts on the ground in Gaza demonstrate that food imports consistently fell below the red lines.”

Israel’s protests that the document was merely a “rough draft” and never implemented are barely credible… If the politicians and generals were advised by health experts that Gaza needed at least 170 trucks a day, why did they oversee a policy that allowed in only 67?

It does not need an expert to conclude that the imposition of this Weisglass-style “diet” would entail widespread malnutrition, especially among children. And that is precisely what happened, as a leaked report from the International Committee of the Red Cross found at the time. “Chronic malnutrition is on a steadily rising trend and micro-nutrient deficiencies are of great concern,” it reported in early 2008.

Israel’s protests that the document was merely a “rough draft” and never implemented are barely credible – and, anyway, beside the point. If the politicians and generals were advised by health experts that Gaza needed at least 170 trucks a day, why did they oversee a policy that allowed in only 67?

There can be no 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. The goal, according to the Israeli Defence Ministry, was to wage “economic warfare” that would generate a political crisis, leading to a popular uprising against 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 other, still-classified documents setting out similar experiments in social engineering? Will future historians reveal that Israeli officials also pondered the fewest hours of electricity Gazans needed to survive, or the minimum amount of water, or the smallest living space per family, or the highest feasible levels of unemployment?

Such formulas presumably lay behind:

  • the decision to bomb Gaza’s only power station in 2006 and subsequently to block its proper repair;
  • the refusal to approve a desalination plant, the only way to prevent overdrilling contaminating the Strip’s underground water supply;
  • the declaration of large swaths of farmland no-go areas, forcing the rural population into the already overcrowded cities and refugee camps; and
  • the continuing blockade on exports, decimating Gaza’s business community and ensuring the population remains dependent on aid.

It is precisely these policies by Israel 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 these other measures can be found in a military strategy that found its apotheosis in Operation Cast Lead, the savage attack on Gaza in winter 2008-09.

The Dahiya doctrine was Israel’s attempt to update its traditional military deterrence principle to cope with a changing Middle East, one in which the main challenge it faced was from asymmetrical warfare. The name Dahiya derives from a neighbourhood of Beirut Israel levelled in its 2006 attack on Lebanon.

This experiment in the manufacture of Palestinian despair is, it goes with saying, both illegal and grossly immoral. But ultimately it is also certain to unravel – and possibly sooner rather than later.

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”. Matan Vilnai may have been thinking in similar terms when, months before Operation Cast Lead, he warned that Israel was preparing to inflict on Gaza ashoah, the Hebrew word for holocaust.

Seen in this context, Weisglass’ diet can be understood as just one more refinement of the Dahiya doctrine: a whole society refashioned to accept its subjugation through a combination of violence, poverty, malnutrition and a permanent struggle over limited resources.

This experiment in the manufacture of Palestinian despair is, it goes with saying, both illegal and grossly immoral. But ultimately it is also certain to unravel – and possibly sooner rather than later. The visit this week of Qatar’s emir, there to bestow hundreds of millions of dollars in aid, was the first by a head of state since 1999.

The Gulf’s wealthy oil states need influence, allies and an improved image in a new Middle East wracked by uprisings and civil war. Gaza is a prize, it seems, they may be willing to challenge Israel to possess.

“The Name of the Game: Erasing Palestine…”

NOVANEWS
Israel's Cameron

Stuart Littlewood explains why British Prime Minister David Cameron’s loyal pledge to Israel, reiterated on 15 October at the annual dinner of the United Jewish Israel Appeal, “is totally incompatible with the values we hold dear and is a stain on Britain and the British people”.

Around the time my article Who does ‘Agent Cameron’ work for?” appeared last week, a Jewish lady, Elizabeth Morley, wrote to David Cameron scolding the prime minister for his shocking dinner speech to the United Jewish Israel Appeal.

Agent Cameron told his Jewish audience: “With me, you have a prime minister whose belief in Israel is unbreakable and whose commitment to Israel’s security is non-negotiable… I will always stand by the Jewish people… Britain will always stand by Israel, protect Israel, and work with Israel on the path to peace.”

He was definitely not speaking for the British public, although he probably thinks he was. On the contrary, he spoke only for himself and the rest of the vile little army of Zionist hirelings that infect his party and the fabric of our political life.

In his speech, Agent Cameron demanded “zero tolerance for any form of anti-Semitism” – this from someone who boasts about his “non-negotiable” support for a regime that practises land-thieving, ethnic cleansing, imprisonment without trial, torture, denial of educational opportunities, and has blockaded and incarcerated a whole nation (the siege of Gaza is over five years old and the West Bank has been sealed for decades), imposed a starvation diet on children and launched a blitzkriegagainst civilians even when there is nowhere to run, etc, etc – the crime-sheet is far too long to list here.

There are worse things than being anti-Semitic. And supporting a regime that repeatedly commits crimes against humanity such as these is one of them.

What seemed to particularly incense Elizabeth Morley was this remark:

To those in Britain’s universities and trades unions who want to boycott Israel and consign it to an international ghetto, I say not only will this government never allow you to shut down 60 years worth of vibrant exchange and partnership that does so much to make both our countries stronger but I also say this: we know what you are doing – trying to delegitimize the state of Israel – and we will not have it.

Ms Morley’s response puts Cameron firmly in his place.

I do not agree that those who want to boycott Israel want to ‘consign it to an international ghetto’. Quite the contrary! I believe they want to bring Israel in from the cold, as it were, so it may join the community of real democracies – ones that treat all their citizens equally. Personally, I want to boycott Israelfor the same reason I wanted to boycott South Africa: for its blatant and brutal racism.

As for Cameron’s remark that it would require great strength and courage to take the hard choices needed to resolve the conflict with the Palestinians, Elizabeth retorted: “The conflict cannot be resolved while the Western countries employ double standards in their treatment of Israelis and Palestinians, or, for that matter, of Jews and Muslims. Have you, for instance, ever made such a speech as this to the Palestinian community in the UK?” she asked him.

On the subject of Iran Ms Morley reminded him that Iran is not the only country in the Middle East flouting United Nations resolutions. “Iran has flouted six of them, you say. Well, Israel has flouted several dozen! You say that Iran’s claim that its nuclear programme is intended purely for civilian purposes is not remotely credible and yet you appear quite sanguine about Israel‘s nuclear weapons.

If Iran is a threat to the world, Israel is a far greater threat: its very creation brought endless turmoil into the Middle East… It has incited terrorism all over the world, and especially hatred of our country for having given Palestine away over the heads of its indigenous population almost a hundred years ago…

Cameron had said he believed support for Israel is in the DNA of the party he leads and of the British people. “That is why Britain will always stand by Israel, protect Israel, and work with Israel on the path to peace.”

To which Ms Morley replied:

You said that support for Israel was in the DNA of the Conservative Party. I wish that support for the downtrodden, ethnically cleansed Palestinians were likewise in its DNA! I wish you had the wisdom to realize that as long as Britain displays double standards it cannot hope to be “on the path to peace”; it will remain on the path to further enmity and conflict.

Cameron had also repeated the old mantra that there is no path to statehood for the Palestinians except through talks with Israel. “Just how many more decades of ‘negotiation’ do you think will be needed?” Ms Morley wanted to know, urging him to take a short history lesson from Miko Peled in the video below.

I’m grateful to Ms Morley for bringing Miko Peled to my attention – the video is a “must see” for anyone interested in the truth.

Put Agent Cameron’s speech alongside Miko Peled’s and the extent of Cameron’s ignorance and stupidity are frankly beyond embarrassingly. Peled is an Israeli Jew, the son of an Israeli general and himself a former soldier in the Israeli army. You couldn’t find a more authentic insider source. He confirms what many of us have known and been saying for years. Here are some extracts.

The name of the game: erasing Palestine, getting rid of the people and de-Arabizing the country…

When people talk about the possibility of Israel somehow giving up the West Bank for a Palestinian state, if it wasn’t so sad it would be funny. It shows a complete misunderstanding of the objective of Zionism and the Zionist state.

By 1993 the Israelis had achieved their mission to make the conquest of the West Bank irreversible. By 1993 the Israeli government knew for certain that a Palestinian state could not be established in the West Bank – the settlements were there, billions of dollars were invested, the entire Jordan River valley was settled … there was no place any more for a Palestinian state to be established. That is when Israel said, OK, we’ll begin negotiations…

But such negotiations, he says, were merely to persuade Arafat to sign and complete the surrender, which he would not do. “The myth we are told is that the Palestinians are not willing to make concessions… It is not the Palestinians who are not willing to make concessions, it’s the Israelis who are incapable of making concessions! Concessions on the land are impossible from a Zionist perspective…”

Peled explains how Israel governs with three sets of laws: one for Israeli Jews such as himself who can do and say what they please and for whom the system operates more or less like a democracy; and one for those Palestinians who are citizens of Israel comprising 30 laws that amount to “a whole culture of discrimination” against them specifically.

Then there are laws that govern Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza which are “at the pleasure of the Israeli army – if they want to destroy they destroy, if they want to arrest and beat they arrest and beat, if they want to torture they torture, if they want to kill they kill, and Palestinians have no recourse. This is the reality.

There’s a Zionist education system that teaches racism in a very subtle way. There’s an entire bureaucracy that is dedicated to making life impossible for Palestinians through all kinds of restrictions and permits and requirements that are absolutely uncalled-for and unnecessary but are all given and provided under the guise of security.

And there is the Israeli army, which I like to refer to as one of the best trained and best equipped and best fed terrorist organizations in the world.

Precisely.

Agent Cameron is a self-proclaimed Zionist. As if no words were too ridiculous to utter, he tells his Jewish audience: “There is no contradiction between being a proud Jew, a committed Zionist and a loyal British citizen.” Well, we’ve just had it confirmed on good authority what Zionists are up to – erasing and de-Arabizing Palestine – and we are well aware of the racist policies they use to achieve their evil ends. One-third of British Jews are said to be critical of Zionist Israel. So Cameron sucks up to the hard-core who support and applaud Israel’s criminal behaviour.

His loyal pledge to this foreign power with its “terrorist” army is totally incompatible with the values we hold dear and is a stain on Britain and the British people.

Did he learn nothing on the playing fields of Eton?

LMAO!!! Christian Leaders in IsraHell want Jewish ‘price tag’ vandals arrested

NOVANEWS

ed note–sorry but it’s a little late in the game to find out that Jews DESPISE Christians and that there can be no ‘peaceful co-existence’ with someone devoted to your own personal destruction. This was a lesson you had 2,000 years to figure out and yet didn’t for some inexplicable reason.

jpost.com

After a wave of anti-Christian “price-tag” attacks this year, Christian leaders from one Jerusalem church hosted 50 people at a solidarity event on Tuesday to urge law enforcement to find and arrest the vandals perpetrating these attacks.

“We made it clear that we hold no grudge or personal animosity or are seeking revenge,” said Rev. Charles Kopp, the senior pastor of the Narkis Street Congregation.

“But we feel for the sake of civic order that the arm of the law needs to take care of the situation.”

The Narkis Street Congregation invited representatives from the Foreign Ministry, Interior Ministry, and Public Security Ministry. City council members, including Deputy Mayor Pepe Alalu, and rabbis from neighboring synagogues attended as well.

Vandals attacked the Narkis Street Congregation on February 20 of this year, writing “Death to Christianity,” “Jesus was a bastard” and “price tag” on the wall as well as slashing the tires of three cars.

Since the beginning of the year, price-tag activists have also vandalized the Franciscan convent at the Dormition Abbey on Mount Zion, the Latrun Monastery, and the Valley of the Cross. No one has been arrested in connection with any of the price-tag attacks this year against Christian sites.

Since the Narkis Street Congregation chapel was burnt to the ground in 1982, the Baptist church has suffered from nearly annual vandalism, ranging from small fires to anti-Christian graffiti to slashing the tires of cars parked outside the historic church. Police have not arrested any suspects in connection with the constant vandalism.

Kopp said police have not been in touch with the congregation to update them on any breakthroughs in their investigation.

“Israeli security is legendary and for a good reason,” said Kopp. “I’m sure if they put the right unit on this case, they’d find them in short order. If they have traffic police on it or some minor-league unit, they’re not going to succeed.”

Kopp urged the law enforcement to treat the vandalism as a serious national security threat, adding that it is a “slippery slope” from vandalism to more serious crime.

Jerusalem Police spokesman Shmuel Ben-Ruby said on Tuesday the special investigative unit in charge of looking into the attacks against Christian sites this year has not made any breakthroughs and there are no leads.

European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton has met with Lebanese Prime Minister Najib Mikati over the recent car bomb attack in Beirut.

The Tuesday meeting, held at the Government Palace (Grand Serail) in Beirut, mainly focused on bomb attack, which killed eight people, including chief of Lebanon’s Internal Security Forces, General Wissam al-Hassan.  They also discussed the latest developments in the region and the ongoing unrest in Syria.

“There are some who are trying to divert attention from the situation in the region by causing problems in Lebanon… This attack is a terrible thing. We are concerned about the stability of Lebanon,” Ashton said after the meeting.

“We appreciate the positions of Mr. Mikati to maintain the cohesion and integrity of Lebanon under these difficult circumstances,” she was quoted as telling Mikati.

She also held a meeting with Lebanese President Michel Sleiman in his official residence (Baabda Palace) during her one-day stay.

Later in the day, Ashton held talks with Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri, head of the Future bloc, Fouad Siniora, and Lebanese Army Commander Gen. Jean Kahwagi.

On October 19, a car bomb blast in Beirut’s eastern Ashrafiya district killed at least eight people and injured scores of others.

The blast was the first major bomb attack in Beirut since 2008. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack. Mikati said the government was trying to identify the perpetrators and that they would be punished.

Fatalities from IsraHell airstrikes on Gaza mount to 4

Another Palestinian has died, succumbing to his injuries sustained in recent airstrikes carried out by the Israeli regime on the Gaza Strip.

The victim was the fourth Palestinian killed in Israeli airstrikes against Gaza since Tuesday night.

The other Palestinians injured in the airstrikes are suffering from lack of medicine due to the Israeli siege on the enclave, a Press TV correspondent said.

The Tel Aviv regime’s violent assaults started after an Israeli Army officer was wounded by a bomb in the Kissufim region on Gaza’s northern border. The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine organization claimed responsibility for the bombing.

In response to the Israeli aggression, Palestinians have fired dozens of rockets from the Gaza Strip into Israel.
Gaza has been blockaded since 2007, a situation that has caused a decline in the standard of living, unprecedented levels of unemployment, and unrelenting poverty.

A pro-Palestine Greek activist has censured the Tel Aviv regime’s militia-like interception of a humanitarian aid ship attempting to break the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip.

“The balaclava-clad commandos from the Israeli marine carrying heavy weapons came aboard the boat and acted like a militia,” said Vaguelis Diamantopoulos, a Greek lawmaker who was aboard the Finnish-flagged Estelle ship, on Tuesday.

Israeli forces intercepted Estelle on October 20 and escorted the vessel to the port of Ashdod. The Tel Aviv regime forces also detained the passengers, but released ten activists on Tuesday.

Five European lawmakers and a former Canadian parliamentarian were also among the 27 passengers of the ship.
The released activists screened footage which displayed Israeli inflatable boats each carrying 10 to 15 armed commandos and patrolling naval boats.

The Israeli regime denies about 1.7 million people in Gaza their basic rights, such as freedom of movement, jobs that pay proper wages, and adequate healthcare and education. 

The Estelle was the latest of more than a dozen ships that had tried to break the blockade since 2010.
On May 31, 2010, Israeli forces attacked the Gaza-bound humanitarian Freedom Flotilla in international waters in the

Mediterranean Sea, killing nine Turkish nationals aboard Turkey’s Mavi Marmara and injuring about 50 other activists who were part of the six-ship convoy.

Also in November 2011, a Canadian and an Irish yacht were prevented by Israeli forces in international waters to transport pro-Palestinian activists and medical supplies to Gaza.

Qatari Emir visits Gaza Strip to launch reconstruction project

NOVANEWS

Qatari Emir Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani has visited the Gaza Strip to inaugurate a project to rebuild the besieged territory.

Sheikh Hamad arrived in Gaza on Tuesday to become the first head of state to visit the strip since the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas took power in the territory five years ago.

He pledged $400 million for reconstruction projects, such as building housing complexes, and rehabilitating roads in the area. He also called on Palestinians to unite and resist against discord.

“It’s about time Palestinians turn over the page of division and open a new chapter for reconciliation and agreement, based on the agreements in Doha and Cairo, with sincere efforts from Palestinian president brother Mahmud Abbas and head of the Hamas political bureau Khaled Meshaal,” he said.

“Why are you staying divided? There are no peace negotiations, and there is no clear strategy of resistance and liberation. Why shouldn’t brothers sit together and reconcile?” he added.

Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniya said that the visit by the Qatari Emir showed that Gaza was “not alone,” noting that the trip had broken Israel’s economic and political blockade of Gaza.

Gaza has been blockaded since 2007, a situation that has caused a decline in the standard of living, unprecedented levels of unemployment, and unrelenting poverty.

The apartheid regime of Israel denies about 1.7 million people in Gaza their basic rights, such as freedom of movement, jobs that pay proper wages, and adequate healthcare and education.

Dressed in ‘LF’ Flag, Zionist Agent Threatens to Kill from Beirut

NOVANEWS
Covered with the Lebanese Forces flag, a well known Israeli collaborator said he was “ready to kill”, as he was taking part in Sunday’s events when March 14 militants and partisans tried to storm the Grand Serail in Downtown Beirut.Pierre Nammour, of Lebanese nationality, has been charged of spying for the Zionist entity in the Lebanese territories for more than ten years.
He entered the occupied territories for treatment at the Israeli Rambam Medical Center after being injured in his chest and abdomen during his service as a collaborator.Nammour asked the Zionist entity for an asylum following July offensive in 2006 when one of the Israeli patrols occupied the southern village of Marwaheen.Born in Saida, he was from Qlaiaa residents.The man, who speaks Hebrew fluently, was among the people who took part in the protest that coincided with the funeral of Internal Security Forces Information Branch Chief Wissam al-Hasan on Sunday.
He appeared in a report broadcast by al-Jadeed TV on Sunday, covered with the Lebanese Forces flag.“March 14 is still alive in our souls,” Nammour told al-Jadeed reporter as he voiced distress for the ongoing events in Lebanon.“What happened in the country is no more bearable!” he said, adding that “we can do much more actions,” against what the second side has been doing.
When asked to name some of these “actions” the Israeli colloborator can do it to “counter” the other camp’s practices, he said: “The easiest action in life is killing!”The reporter here asked him: “Are you ready to kill?”Nammour answered blatantly: “If we were obliged to do so… Why not?”
