Zio-Nazi threatens to kill civilians in Hezbollah war

HERZLIYA, Israel: Israel accused Hezbollah Wednesday of putting “thousands” of bases in residential buildings and said it would destroy these in a future conflict, even at the cost of civilian lives.

The unusually explicit threat by air force chief Major-General Amir Eshel appeared to be part of an effort by Israeli officials to prepare world opinion for high civilian casualties in any new confrontation with Hezbollah in Lebanon.

Israel says Iran and Syria have supplied improved missiles to Hezbollah, which fought the technologically superior Israeli military to a standstill in a 2006 war in Lebanon.

“We will have to deal aggressively with thousands of Hezbollah bases which threaten Israel and mainly our interior,” Eshel said in a speech, citing Beirut, the Bekaa Valley and southern Lebanon among the locations of the bases.

Other Israeli officials have alleged that Hezbollah uses Lebanese civilian homes as missile silos or gun nests.

Eshel said Hezbollah sometimes had entire storys of residential buildings ready, under lock and key, to be used in combat.

“Above and below live civilians whom we have nothing against – a kind of human shield,” he told the Fisher Institute for Air and Space Strategic Studies, a think-tank near Tel Aviv.

“And that is where the war will be. That is where we will have to fight in order to stop it and win. Whoever stays in these bases will simply be hit and will risk their lives. And whoever goes out will live.”

Much of Hezbollah’s attention is now devoted to Syria, where its fighters have been helping President Bashar Assad battle an almost 3-year-old insurgency.

While content to watch Hezbollah and the Islamist-led Syrian rebels fight each other, Israel worries that its Lebanese foes will obtain more advanced weaponry from Assad’s arsenal.

On at least three occasions last year, Israeli forces bombed suspected Hezbollah-bound arms convoys in Syria.

Asked whether Israel had done too little to intercept such transfers, Eshel said Israeli forces still had the upper hand.

“I don’t think this is a failure,” Eshel said.

“I think the Israel has extraordinary deterrence which should not be discredited – significant deterrence, bought in blood.”

Belgian lawmaker: Zionists bankrolled the Holocaust

NOVANEWS

The president of Belgium’s parliament condemned the actions of a lawmaker who said that Zionists were responsible for the Holocaust and performed a quasi-Nazi salute in parliament.

“I would like to reinforce my condemnation of these hateful acts,” Andre Flahaut said on Jan. 23 in reference to the actions of Laurent Louis, who on Jan. 16 said in parliament: “The Holocaust was set up and financed by the pioneers of Zionism.”

The Belgian League Against Anti-Semitism, a newly-established watchdog, pledged during its inaugural event to  focus much of its activities on Louis — an independent member of the lower house of Belgium’s Federal Parliament.

“We do not wish to offer Laurent a podium,” Isaac Franco, the league’s vice president, said during the Jan. 27 event in Brussels. “But upon consulting the tens of thousands of visitors to his website, we see he represents a threat that needs to be confronted.”

The league’s president, Joel Rubinfeld, told JTA that Louis has a rich history of making anti-Semitic and revisionist statements on the Holocaust.

Recently, he said that Israel was guilty of Nazi crimes against Palestinians. Last year, he posed for pictures outside parliament while standing on an Israeli flag.

The CCOJB, the umbrella group representing French-speaking Belgian Jews, said last week it would file a complaint against Louis, who entered parliament as a representative of the small center-right People’s Party, but he was kicked out of the party and now remains in the body as a non-partisan.

During his address about the Holocaust, Louis also performed the quenelle — a salute which was invented by the anti-Semitic comedian Dieudonne M’bala M’bala and which involves folding one’s arm over one’s chest while pointing downwards with the other arm.

Dieudonne, who has seven convictions for anti-Semitism, is currently under investigation by tax authorities on suspicion that he is concealing funds in order not to pay roughly $90,000 in fines imposed on him for the statements.

Police recovered and confiscated nearly $900,000 at his home during a raid Tuesday, according to a report Wednesday by the RTL news network.

Zio-Nazi troops kill Palestinian teen in West Bank

Zio-Nazi soldiers shot dead a 19-year-old Palestinian north of the West Bank city of Ramallah on Wednesday, Palestinian medical and security sources said.

The shooting, which took place just north of the Ofra settlement, was confirmed by the NAZI army in a statement that said a “terrorist” had opened fire at troops and they had returned fire, hitting him.

Palestinian sources identified the victim as Mohammad Mubarak, 19, from Jalazun refugee camp.

“A Palestinian terrorist opened fire at an IDF (army) post near Ofra. The soldiers responded immediately in order to eliminate the imminent threat to their lives and fired towards the terrorist, identifying a hit,” the army said.

Palestinian sources said Mubarak was working as a labourer on a USAID project in the area. His father is local-elected leader of the Jalazun camp, they said.

It was the first time this year that a Palestinian has been killed by NAZI troops in the West Bank. Last year, 27 West Bankers were killed by the army, U.N. statistics show.

NOVANEWS

Birmingham Communist Party has begun the new year with a campaign highlighting the massive profits which are being made by local bus operator National Express at a time when Birmingham has some of the most deprived communities in the country who can ill afford another increase.

Communist Party Birmingham

Despite making profits of £92million in just the first six months of 2013, National Express continue to put up the prices across the board for passengers. As a prelude to a sustained campaign comrades began the year with a spot of leafleting and spent the day chatting to passengers in the town center and distributing some leaflets which highlighted the gross extortion which is taking place and the need for working class organisation to oppose it.

In a number of wards in Birmingham official unemployment is well over 10% and illness and diseases such as TB which were for many years nearly eradicated are making a comeback. Social housing is in a dire state; damp, dank, rotted and crowded flats and houses are surrounded on all sides by streets that are plagued by rats, especially in the inner-city areas of Sparkbrook, Balsall Heath, Highgate and Small Heath where the problem is even worse than it is in Handsworth and other deprived working class areas. This is the reality for hundreds of thousands of residents who live in neglected and semi-derelict properties and streets with the connivance of local Labour Party Councillors who continue to push through cuts to services. Spiraling costs of travel are just one further problem and the numbers of youth who are being forced to skip fares and travel on outdated tickets is leading to an increased presence of heavy policing on the bus routes as the old bill step in to help the bus companies enforce their profiteering (yet another example of the police being mainly concerned with protecting the interests of business).

Of course for the “usual suspects” who play the role of the Birmingham “Left” the real issues for workers are making sure the British imperialists invade and slaughter Ba’athists in Syria, and when they’re not spending their week doing that they’re gossiping with other troto-revisionist octogenarians at the trades council. What Birmingham needs is a number of campaigns on issues that affect the working class, led by people not poisoned with the debilitating effects of trotskyism or social democracy. We’ve already got a stinking Labour council and no matter what the Morning Star says we don’t want any more of these “socialist” cuts!

Labour, Tory same old story. Fight the cuts, all the cuts!

Expose and target the robbers and scroungers; National Express, Starbucks, Poundland!

Iran says ‘I$raHell’ using nuclear issue to hide ‘crimes’

Iranian FM accuses Israel of hidden agenda in its feigned concern  over  Iran’s nuclear program: ‘Under pretext of Iran’s peaceful nuclear energy (program),Zionists have always tried to distract governments, nations’ public opinion from own crimes in Palestine’

ynet

Iran’s foreign minister said Tuesday that Israel is using the issue of Tehran’s nuclear program to distract from its “crimes” against the Palestinians.

Israel, along with Western countries, has long accused Iran of covertly pursuing nuclear weapons alongside its civilian program – charges denied by Tehran – and the Jewish state criticized a landmark nuclear deal reached with world powers in November.

“Under the pretext of Iran’s peaceful nuclear energy (program), the Zionists have always tried to distract governments and nations’ public opinion from their own crimes in Palestine,” Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said in a statement.

He made the remarks during a rare visit to Iran by Jibril Rajub, a senior official in the Western-backed Palestinian Authority, which is currently engaged in US-brokered peace talks with Israel.

Rajub, a senior member of Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas’s Fatah movement, said the group “will not stop the resistance until the establishment of an independent Palestinian government” in east Jerusalem, occupied and annexed by Israel.

The agreement reached with world powers requires Iran to curb or halt its nuclear activities for six months in return for sanctions relief, and is aimed at buying time for the negotiation of a comprehensive agreement to resolve the decade-long dispute.

Israel, the region’s sole if undeclared nuclear-armed state, views Iran’s atomic program as its greatest threat and, like the United States, has not ruled out military action to halt or slow Iran’s nuclear drive.

Iran does not recognize Israel and has long supported armed groups committed to the destruction of the Jewish state, including the powerful Lebanese Shiite movement Hezbollah .

France to deploy an additional 3 000 French troops permanently in West Africa

NOVANEWS

France says it plans to expand its military presence in Africa with the deployment of at least 3 000 troops to military bases in Niger, Mali and Chad as well as a logistics and supply base in Ivory Coast.

France already has troops on stabilisation missions in Ivory Coast, Mali and the Central Africa Republic (CAR).

Addressing a press conference after meeting US Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel in Washington last week, French defence minister Yves Le Drian said France hopes that the new deployment will help France better react to security challenges in the Sahel region.

“France has decided to reorganize its posture in Africa in order to have, all over the zone, a larger reactivity, a larger specialization, so that with the support of the neighbouring states, we can have prevention actions or intervention in a regional approach so that altogether we can make sure that the security of the entire zone is lasting,” Le Drian said.

Once implemented, the deployment will expand the military presence of France, which has soldiers in Djibouti (1 900), Mali (2 000), Central Africa Republic (1 600), Gabon (900), Chad (950), Ivory Coast (450), Senegal (350), Guinea (150) and smaller representations attached to United Nations peacekeeping and stabilisation missions in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Western Sahara and Liberia.

The troop surge follows the announcement in November last year by French Interior Minister Manuel Valls that France will appoint a regional intelligence coordinator in the Senegalese capital Dakar. Valls told reporters in Dakar that the official will “strengthen teams already on the ground to increase efficiency, notably in the field of intelligence.”

The intelligence chief will be specifically charged with gathering intelligence on armed Islamist groups in neighbouring Mali and the entire Sahel region. The French plan comes as Germany said it will increase the number of troops deployed to Mali from 180 to 250. So far 99 out of a mandated 180 German troops are on the ground in Mali taking part in the European Union funded training programme for Malian troops.

Newly appointed defence minister Ursula von der Leyen said the bolstering of the training mission in Mali will also include the deployment of a medical services aircraft to back up the French mission in Central Africa Republic (CAR). She said Germany will boost its international military engagements within the framework of existing military alliances, adding that the country will intervene in Africa shortly to stop military crises.

She said Germany “cannot look the other way when murder and rape are a daily occurrence…In Central Africa, a bloody war is unfolding between Christians and Muslims. We cannot allow this conflict to set the entire region ablaze,” she added.

The US, the EU and West African countries are increasingly concerned about the spread of Islamist insurgencies which have spilled over from the Maghreb to the western rim of the Sahel.

The UN Security Council has also called on partner nations to deploy more resources in preventive troop deployments and troop training for Mali amid reports that the Islamist militia groups which were pushed out of the country’s north by French troops are re-grouping.

France has intervened in Africa 19 times between 1962 and 1995, according to AFP.

Syrian Refugee Has ‘Given Up All Hope’ Of Returning To War-Ridden Country

NOVANEWS
syrian refugees

TRIPOLI, Lebanon — Reem Ajaj had planned to become a judge. That goal still seemed possible just over a year ago as she graduated from law school at Damascus University, even as the Syrian civil war encroached and bombs landed near her home in the Damascus suburb of Dariya.

But just weeks after she received her diploma, she and her family had instead become refugees.

In November 2012, Ajaj and her family left their comfortable suburban home to get away from the war. It took a month of travel to reach Lebanon, and another month to settle in to the home they now rent.

They expected to remain in Lebanon only temporarily and then resume their lives in Syria. Fourteen months later, she and six members of her family — her parents and four of her six siblings — still live crowded into two rooms of a small house in the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli.

“We expected January or February, tops, we’d be gone,” Ajaj, 27, tells The WorldPost, speaking at the community center where she does outreach work with other refugees. “We didn’t expect to be here a year, and now the second year is starting.”

In the course of a day of interviews with refugees and aid workers in Tripoli, now home to tens of thousands of Syrians who have fled the war, that comment was echoed over and over again.

As the civil war in Syria approaches its fourth year, the refugee crisis it has spawned feels increasingly permanent. Many of the nearly 900,000 Syrians who have fled to Lebanon are now realizing that what had seemed a temporary exile has become something far more enduring.

Here in Lebanon, where as many as one in four residents are now Syrian immigrants, those who fled the violence next door now find themselves running low on money, job opportunities and even shelter. And as the war becomes more brutal, they have been joined by hundreds of thousands of new refugees in the last year alone.

Even for refugees like the Ajaj family, who enjoyed wealth at home and some money to help sustain a life in exile, resources are running out.

“Everything has turned completely upside down,” Ajaj says. “When we were in Damascus, we didn’t need anything.”

Ajaj’s salary is used for rent on the two-room house. Her father, who was once able to retire after earning a living from renting land he owned, is unable to find work in Tripoli. The family is forced to live largely on savings and assistance from the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, the U.N.’s refugee agency. And with high school classes in Lebanon conducted in French, Ajaj’s younger siblings are effectively barred from continuing their education.

Aid workers told The WorldPost that such complaints are increasingly common among refugees. Ties are close between Syria and Lebanon, and many Syrians once moved in with relatives or friends when they fled the war. Now such support is increasingly rare as the months pass. Meanwhile, the huge influx of new arrivals has strained the patience of many Lebanese and the resources of the aid agencies.

“We would obviously love to give a lot more, but the number of people is growing. And we are getting funding, but I don’t think it’s coming at the rate that the population is growing,” said Bathoul Ahmed, the press officer for the UNHCR center in Tripoli, where refugees come to register for aid.

Even the UNHCR center is taking on the trappings of permanence. On Wednesday, much like every other day, a long line of refugees stretched from a parking lot to the entrance of the complex.

Inside, Bob Beerens, a Belgian man who runs the registration center, opened a rear door in the large tented hall where Syrians wait for eligibility interviews. He pointed out the areas in a field where the U.N. plans to install toilet facilities, a child care trailer to replace the crowded nook inside the tent and, of course, a smoking area.

The growth is needed as the number of refugees on U.N. rolls continues to mount. More than 600,000 Syrians flooded into Lebanon in 2013. They are now joined in line at the U.N. complex every day by about 500 Syrians returning to renew their assistance, which is valid for one year.

Despite improvements, Beerens said, Syrians must wait in line just to secure an interview, and then wait almost another three weeks for an appointment. Having already doubled his interviewing staff in just over a year, Beerens will hire six new employees in the next week to try and keep up with demand.

“We’re going to sit here for a long time,” he says.

Ajaj agrees, seeing little prospect that she can return home anytime soon.

“I’ve given up all hope, honestly,” she says. When asked about the ongoing peace talks in Geneva, she can only laugh.

Ajaj says she expects the war to drag on for another decade. The likelihood of many more years in exile means trouble for even a relatively well-off family. When the Ajaj family first registered with the U.N. three months after they arrived in Lebanon, they did so for the legal protection that UNHCR offers to refugees rather than medical aid or the food and money that partner agencies provide.

“We didn’t even know that we were going to get this kind of assistance,” Ajaj says.

Those days are long gone. Money continues to dwindle and Ajaj can’t find a permanent job with a good wage. Two of her brothers have already returned to Damascus, working at a supermarket despite their engineering degrees, because the job market in Tripoli is so poor for Syrians. Ajaj fears the rest of the family may have to follow.

“I keep trying to reassure them that maybe I’ll be able to find a job, maybe things could get better,” she says. “But realistically, if things don’t, we might have to get to a point where we go back to Damascus. Even if we have to put up a tent.”

‘I$raHell’ Welcomes Sunni-Shia Conflict

NOVANEWS

By: Ali Haydar

Israeli Major General Amos Yadlin concludes the “Strategic Survey for Israel 2013-2014” by stating:

“In 2013, Israel’s national security balance sheet was largely positive. In contrast, in the second half of 2014, complex and problematic processes underway in the region – including the efforts to contend with the Iranian nuclear program, the effort to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the upheaval in the Arab world, and stature of the United States in the Middle East – can be expected to pose significant challenges to Israel’s security.”

The survey, published by Israel’s Institute for National Security Studies, lists the positive components of Israel’s national security balance sheet, including the Syrian army’s preoccupation with civil war. As a consequence, the army has been “drastically weakened. It has lost many soldiers and a great deal of equipment, and its chemical weapons are in the process of being dismantled.”

The survey notes Hezbollah’s preoccupation with the fighting in Syria, pinpointing the fact that there has been no response to the attacks carried out by Israel against high-quality weapons en route to Hezbollah in Lebanon from Syria.

Another positive, according to the survey, is the “significant” damage to Iran’s economy from sanctions and “poor economic management” under Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Iran’s economic situation has thus influenced domestic policies related to progress in producing a nuclear weapon.

The survey also optimistically addresses the toppling of the Muslim Brotherhood regime in Egypt through a military coup, which put the Egyptian military “back in the driver’s seat.”

Yadlin calls attention to a broad confluence of interests between Israel and Arab states that belong to the “moderate Sunni world,” especially the Gulf states, based on a similar perception between Israel and these states regarding developments in Iran, Syria, and Egypt.

The survey addresses several other issues, such as the near-complete tranquility Israel has enjoyed on its border, its ability to maintain peace treaties with Jordan and Egypt despite the regional turmoil, and its effective deterrence against neighboring countries and against what the author refers to as “terrorist” organizations that control Lebanon and the Gaza Strip.

As for the negative processes that upset the balance, as Yadlin puts it, the survey argues that, on the political and security levels, the Jewish state is challenged by four key issues: the Iranian nuclear program, the Israeli-Palestinian political process, US policy in the Middle East, and the consequences of weakened central governments in Syria, Egypt, Jordan, and Lebanon on Israel’s national security.

Lurking Risks for Israel

The survey warns against the inherent dangers of an agreement between Iran and world powers, which could could give Iran the ability to develop a nuclear weapon.

Regarding the Israeli-Palestinian political process, the survey outlines the political and security repercussions if negotiations over a final settlement are unsuccessful. Failure of negotiations might lead to a diplomatic and legal campaign against Israel in the international arena, to strengthening the economic boycott, and – although less likely – to an escalation in violent confrontations in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip against Hamas.

The survey argues that US policy in the Middle East may represent a challenge for Israel. Specifically, the report refers to a change in the nature of US politics, represented by an increased interest in Asia and a weakened influence in the Middle East. The latter appeared in the US decision to not use military force against Syria and instead focus on diplomacy.

The survey points to an additional threat: the potential impact that the upheaval in the Arab world might have on countries neighboring Israel, namely Syria, Egypt, Jordan, and Lebanon. The author notes that instability in these countries, especially the weakening of central authority, will have repercussions that threaten Israeli national security.

Strategic Opportunities

The fundamental question at the heart of the survey is the nature of the alternative that will prevail in the Arab world amid the ongoing upheaval, especially after the fall of the Muslim Brotherhood.

The survey offers several scenarios, ranging from the return of military dictatorships – as is the case in Egypt – to weakened regimes and the strengthening of extremist Islamist forces such as al-Qaeda and jihadi Salafism. The report points out that events in Syria combine the two latter possibilities, which will surely have an impact on the regional balance of power.

The report argues that these developments entail both risks and opportunities for Israel. Weak governments in nearby countries “increase the likelihood that armed non-state groups will penetrate into the border areas and make the problem of regular security more acute.”

The survey emphasizes that “an increase in terrorist activity on Israel’s borders by terrorist groups … has thus far not materialized into a strategic threat.”

Yet, the report also argues that “the opportunities presented by the upheavals in the Arab world outweigh the risks they incur.” Foremost among these opportunities is the worsening relations between the Sunni axis led by Saudi Arabia and the Shia axis led by Iran. “The weakening of the Shia axis, primarily as a result of the civil war in Syria, has broadened Israel’s room to maneuver in the Middle East and created an opportunity to expand its cooperation with the Sunni axis countries.”
