Why the US Didn’t Pursue Hitler

NOVANEWS

HIA.jpg

We believe Hitler was protected because he  was an Illuminati agentBut Harry Cooper says. Hitler and 1000’s of Nazis enjoyed retirement in Argentina because of a formidable financial and military alliance  with the President Juan Peron, and because  of an exchange that included uranium and nuclear know-how. 

by Harry Cooper


To fully understand why Adolf Hitler
, Eva Braun//Hitler, Martin Bormann and hundreds, perhaps even thousands of men who held high positions in the Third Reich were safe in Argentina we must look at the situation there.

P.jpg

These men came under the protection of Juan Perón, left, and the Argentine military. This ‘friendship’ was bought with billions of dollars worth of treasure by Martin Bormann. In addition to the massive wealth, men of the Reich founded a nuclear research laboratory on an island at the village where Adolf Hitler and so many more lived – Heumel Island on Lake Nahuel Huapi at the town of San Carlos di Bariloche.

Perón built his mountain troop training school on the mainland a few hundred yards across the lake from this island. According to some, Dr. Richter and his team achieved the world’s first cold fusion at this island laboratory in the early 1950’s…

Perón needed Nazi lucre to buy his way to the top in Argentina. Further, there were hundreds of former SS men in and around Bariloche. They had heavily armed security both on the land and on the lake, so no small clandestine force would have had any possibility of success. Add to this, the large ring of observation points in the mountains all around the lake and in the town. It would have been impossible for anything short of an all-out large scale invasion to get into the area.

Why didn’t the USA ‘go after Hitler’? With all this protection from Perón and the unlikelihood that Perón would ever willingly give up any of these men, nothing short of a full scale invasion could have even begun to accomplish this and the USA was tired of war. But there is another compelling reason.

EXCHANGE FOR SCIENTIFIC EXPERTISE 

Cooper1957x.JPG

This now is theory mind you, but based on hard facts. At this point, we look back to 1958 when yours truly was a young punk in the United States Air Force. I spent the first six months of that year in intense weapons training at Lowrey Air Force Base in Denver, Colorado. In the early part of our training, we watched films of the United States early attempts to build a nuclear bomb. The US special weapons project was moving very slowly and in fact, if I remember correctly the 1984 book “Japan’s Secret War” by ROBERT WILCOX stated that Japan test fired their first nuclear device a week before the US did.

German U-Boats were trying to make the dangerous voyage to Japanese held ports in the Indian Ocean and in the Pacific carrying all sorts of high tech weaponry and uranium. The Allies had the codes and knew which boats were carrying what, and they were ambushed by British submarines as they came over Denmark and into the Denmark Straits.

U-234 was under the command of JOHANN HEINRICH FEHLER (32-1984) and he was not a young Skipper like the others who walked into the trap. He had been a merchant Skipper before the war and in the early days, was the Demolitions Officer aboard the raider ATLANTIS.

Sensing there was something amiss with his ordained course, he changed course and so the Royal Navy submarine waiting in ambush for U-234 had no target. The cease fire order from Großadmiral Karl Dönitz found U-234 in the North Atlantic so they had a choice where to put in for their surrender. After an officer’s conference, they surrendered to the USA – with their 560 kilos of uranium.

Looking back upon my Spec-Weps training, the USA was struggling but right around the time of the German surrender, the US Spec-Weps program took a gigantic leap forward. We were told it was because our brilliant scientists had done magnificent work etc. but as we look back, we must wonder about this.

U-234f.JPG

Photo left – inspecting U-234 in the US after her surrender.

Germany surrendered and suddenly the USA had all manner of brilliant German scientists, fissionable material for weapons building, intercontinental ballistic missiles, jet planes and even rocket powered planes, the first true submarine (the Type XXI and Type XXIII) and God knows what else. Even today we do not know all that came over from Germany after their surrender.

So what if………what if the agreement was made to turn over all this information, material, scientists etc. to the USA and in exchange, nobody would go after Hitler and the others? It was a pretty easy decision to make. On the one hand, the US would receive untold advancements in science, weaponry and other greatly needed areas as already described and Hitler and the others of the Reich would be allowed to live out their lives quietly in Argentina.

On the other hand, if agreement was not reached, how many thousands of the top German scientists would have gone to the Soviet Union? The atomic bomb would not have been ready for Hiroshima or Nagasaki, meaning the deaths of hundreds of thousands of American troops and most likely almost the entire Japanese race who were prepared to fight to the last man if necessary.

The Soviet Union would have been the leader in nuclear armament, would have had the jet fighters, the rockets, the ICBMs etc. much earlier. In other words, if the agreement had not been reached, the war in the Pacific would have gone on much longer, millions more would have died, and the USSR would have been the leader in all phases of weaponry and then the USA would have had to march into Argentina in a full military invasion.

As I already said, this is my theory but I think it is a pretty solid one and, backed up by the thousands of files we have from the various research archives thanks to S.E.I.G. Agents TAUCHER and REMBRANDT, and our best S.E.I.G. Agent of all – PIZZARRO; there is no doubt in my mind that this is what happened. We have files from the US National Archives, from Dutch Intelligence and from various archives abandoned when the STASI moved out.

There is no way anyone else could pull all this together and that is why I am absolutely certain this is the way it actually happened. Sharkhunters is not a part time hobby – I work 12 to 14 hours per day in my office or I am in the field in Argentina, in Germany, in Austria, on forgotten islands, Brazil and so many other places. There is no doubt in my mind that Adolf Hitler, Eva Braun, Martin Bormann and hundreds of others did indeed go to Argentina and other than Adolf Eichmann and Klaus Barbie, lived out their lives in peace and safety thanks to the factors put forth in this book. – See more at: http://henrymakow.com/2014/03/Why-the-US-Didnt-Pursue-Hitler.html#sthash.b9SVCUCE.dpuf

Lessons from Yarmouk

NOVANEWS
Every decade, another episode of dispossession and loss plays out for Palestinian refugees in troubled host countries.
By: Yousef Munayyer

Yarmouk is the latest reminder of the international community’ failure to address the plight of Palestinian refugees, writes Munayyer [EPA]
In Yarmouk refugee camp, the largest concentration of Palestinians in Syria among the nine refugee camps there, the Palestinian population is trapped and suffering. The camp sits just south of Damascus and its strategic location has made it part of the battlefield, leaving refugees who would rather take a neutral stance for their own safety caught in the middle.

Prior to 2011, the camp was home to some 180, 000 Palestinian refugees, today only about 20,000 remain. Most of its inhabitants have been forced into becoming refugees again. Those stuck inside are trapped, and a stalemate between the government and rebels has led to a siege preventing humanitarian access for months. Only recently have emergency food packages been permitted entry.

Shocking deprivation in Syria’s Yarmouk

Partisans in the war in Syria have predictably used the crisis in Yarmouk to slam their opponents, but they are missing the larger point and the lesson from Yarmouk.

Yarmouk is merely the most recent episode in the legacy of the Nakba. Every decade or so another episode of dispossession and loss plays out for stateless Palestinian refugees in troubled host countries. Today it is Yarmouk. A decade ago it was Palestinian refugees caught in the midst of the war on Iraq.

A decade before that, Palestinian refugees living in Kuwait had to abandon their homes amidst the first gulf war. A decade before that, Palestinians were massacredin the camps of Sabra and Shatila in Lebanon. A decade before that, the events known to Palestinians as “Black September” in Jordan also underscored the vulnerability of refugees in host countries during political violence.

Yes, what is happening in Yarmouk is part of the story of what is happening in Syria, but it is also part of the bigger story of Palestinian dispossession. The lesson the international community must take from Yarmouk is that the efforts to resolve the plight of Palestinian refugees must be redoubled and that they are as urgent today as ever.

Today, the refugees are located in various host countries in the Arab world but also elsewhere. Some Palestinian refugees fleeing conflict in host countries have been resettled in lands as far away as Sweden, Iceland, Chile and Australia. But why resettle these refugees across the globe when they have a homeland?

Instead of focusing efforts to resettle Palestinians everywhere but where they are from, the international community must work the pressure Israel to allow these refugees to finally return home.

The right of Palestinians to return to their towns and villages is non-negotiable and despite peace talks aimed at an “end of claims” agreement, no agreement that fails to uphold the Palestinian right to return can end all claims. The individual rights and claims of Palestinian refugees can never be signed away by the stroke of a pen.

Nor is the resettlement of Palestinian refugees in a would-be Palestinian state fair to either the refugees or the fledgling state of Palestine. A refugee from land in Nazareth cannot exercise his right to return in Nablus, nor can a refugee from Jaffa exercise this right in Jenin.

Further, a Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza would be on about 22 percent of Palestine. Compared to the Israeli state it would be a quarter of the land area, twice as densely populated, and yet have an economy 1/30th in size. Israel not only bears the responsibility, but it also has a far greater capacity for the absorption of returning refugees.

The right of return is a human right that Israel denies Palestinian refugees simply because they are not Jews and because any changes in demographics might challenge Jewish control of power in the state. Denial of human rights based on discrimination to keep one group in power is the hallmark of Apartheid.

Yarmouk is but the latest reminder of the international community’s failure to address the plight of Palestinian refugees. Letting Israel off the hook and instead seeking alternative places in which to resolve the refugee issue is effectively apologising for Israel’s discriminatory policies. They should act immediately by demanding Israel allow repatriation in accordance with international law.

The inability to confront the human rights crisis at the foundation of the refugee question has led to one humanitarian crisis after the other. The refugees need a permanent solution, repatriation, and the equal rights and protections that everyone around the world desires and deserves.

The refugee issue must not be put on the backburner again; the time to act is now. We cannot afford to wait for the next inevitable tragic episode in the legacy of the Nakba.

“ALL WARS ARE BANKER WARS”

The way ahead: taking I$raHell to the ICC

NOVANEWS
International Criminal Court

By Ruth Tenne

The stalled “peace” negotiation with Israel seems to suggest that the only viable option left for the Palestinian nation is to take Israel to the International Criminal Court(ICC). Indeed, the chief Palestinian negotiator, Saeb Erekat, said recently that “the Palestinians would take Israel to the International Criminal Court (ICC) for war crimes and violations of international law. The Palestinians will also seek membership in 63 international organizations, including the ICC”.

In November 2012, the United Nations General Assembly recognized Palestine as a non-member state, which meant that the Palestinians are free to sign up to the ICC’s Rome Statute and take Israel to the criminal court in Hague. However, with the resumption of peace talks between the Israelis and the Palestinians in July 2013, the US put pressure on the Palestinian leadership not to go to the ICC while the negotiations are taking place. It appears that the Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas, submitted to the US pressure and is, so far, refusing to sign the Rome Statute, which would legally offer him a legal access to the ICC. This was fully recognized in a recent statement and petition by Amnesty International, which claimed that Palestine should accede to the |ICC now. It said:

One year ago, the UN General Assembly voted to recognize Palestinian statehood. In the year since then, the Palestinian leadership has taken no statesmanlike steps. It has not signed any UN treaties that would protect human rights, or the Geneva Conventions, or the Rome Statute

of the International Criminal Court (ICC). It should do so without further delay. More than 16,500 Amnesty International activists around the world have signed petitions and written letters to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to persuade him that acceding to the ICC will show that no party will again be able to commit international crimes against civilians with impunity on Palestinian territory. This promise has been deferred, Amnesty International was told in meetings with the Palestinian Authority earlier this year, while efforts are put into diplomatic negotiations with Israel. Yet, unless ending impunity and human rights abuses are at the heart of diplomacy, a just and enduring resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict will remain elusive. The International Criminal Court and other international justice mechanisms such as universal jurisdiction are important potential avenues towards accountability for victims of crimes under international law on all sides.

In the period preceding the Palestinian appeal to the UN General Assembly, I argued, in article on Middle East Online, that “An official recognition of a Palestinian state by UN member states will grant the new state access to international organizations such as the IMF, the World Bank, the World Health Organization, UNESCO, ICC, ICJ, UNICEF and dozens of other bodies associated [with] the UN.”

… the Palestinian leadership seems to have succumbed to US pressure and is refraining from ratifying the Rome Statute, which will enable Palestine to take Israel to the ICC for violating international and humanitarian law.

Yet, the Palestinian leadership seems to have succumbed to US pressure and is refraining from ratifying the Rome Statute, which will enable Palestine to take Israel to the ICC for violating international and humanitarian law. The leadership’s position, however, is not shared by Palestinian human rights organizations. Al-Haq and the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights are indeed pushing for Palestine to ratify the ICC statute and other international treaties. In an article published on Al-Jazeera newswebsite, Shawn Jabrin, the director of Al-Hagq, an independent Palestinian human rights organization, argues that it

goes against the very object and purpose of the ICC to allow states to escape accountability because they changed their mind after triggering the court’s jurisdiction, whether by subsequently refusing to ratify the statute or “pulling back” the initial referral. Justice cannot be held to ransom in this way.

In a poignant article published on Redress Information & Analysis, the writer and political commentator Stuart Littlewood points out that

Its upgraded status now enables Palestine to take part in UN debates and join bodies like the International Criminal Court… Predictably, Israel flew into a rage at the prospect and said the move pushed the peace process “backwards”, while the US said it was “unfortunate”. So, what has the Palestinian leadership done with this precious gift of empowerment from the international community? Nothing.

In a further article, Mr Littlewood contends convincingly that “it’s up to civil society to set an example, brush aside the political posers and take direct action”. He goes on to say: “As it happens, a specially drafted letter to the ICC has suddenly popped into my inbox. It appears to have originated from the Sabeel international conference… The idea is for thousands of copies of the letter to be sent by individual activists and groups from all over the world”. Mr Littlewood has duly attached to his article a template letter to the ICC which had reportedly been drafted by a Palestinian legal team.

… human rights activists all over the world are of the view that Israel’s rampant colonization of the West Bank is a complete violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention and international law which ought to come under the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court.

Having argued in the past for such an initiative to be undertaken by the Palestinian leadership, I felt obliged to respond to this letter campaign. I, however, have slightly adapted the letter so as to highlight the fact that human rights activists all over the world are of the view that Israel’s rampant colonization of the West Bank is a complete violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention and international law which ought to come under the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court. My slightly adjusted template letter to the ICC highlighted the main points made by the campaign legal team. It was sent to the ICC in January 2014 employing the following text:

As an Israeli human rights activist, I urge for investigation to be initiated by the Office of the Prosecutor as to determine whether war crimes have been committed in connection with the transfer of civilian population into territory of Palestine which is under the belligerent occupation of Israel as from 1967. Power for the initiation of such an investigation would appear to exist under Article 15 of the Statute of the International Criminal Court.

It is my understanding that such an unlawful transfer has occurred in a manner that appears to constitute a violation of Article 8 (2) (b) (viii) of the Rome Statute which refers to: “the transfer, directly or indirectly, by the Occupying Power of parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies, or the deportation or transfer of all or parts of the population of the occupied territory within or outside this territory”.

From facts available in the public domain, such transfers have risen to the level of gravity required for action by the court. Transfers of many thousands of civilians continue to be carried out by Israel with impunity.

The fact of a violation of the comparable provision of the Geneva Convention Relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War of 1949 has been determined by United Nations organs, including the General Assembly, the Security Council and the International Court of Justice. These organs have determined a violation by Israel as stated by the High Contracting Parties to the Geneva Convention (15 July 1999): “The participating High Contracting Parties reaffirmed the applicability of the Fourth Geneva Convention to the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem. Furthermore, they reiterated the need for full respect for the provisions of the said Convention in that Territory.”

I also understand that the court has jurisdiction over persons potentially responsible for such transfers. The declaration lodged with the Registrar of the Court by the Government of Palestine on 21 January 2009 under Article 12 (3) of the Rome Statute confers jurisdiction over war crimes committed in the territory of Palestine since 1 July 2002.

The matter has become urgent as it is vital to any peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinian nation. I therefore feel it is imperative that an investigation be initiated without delay so as to prevent the victimization of thousands of Palestinians whose land is illegally confiscated, annexed, and colonized by an illegal occupier.

Although the ICC, as expected, did not respond to my letter , I do believe that the campaign letters to the ICC would help keep Israel’s crimes on its agenda and will eventually drive the Palestinian leadership to ratify the Rome Statute and submit a criminal case against Israel – either as a particular test case or as a more general war crime referring to Israel’s illegal occupation and expanding settlements in the West Bank as well as to its unlawful blockade of the Gaza strip .

As a senior Middle East researcher for Human Rights Watch proclaimed, “Potential ICC involvement could change the political calculus of those responsible for such violations by sending a clear message that the commission of grave crimes will lead to serious consequences.”

Turkey downs Syrian jet near border ‘for airspace violation’

NOVANEWS

A Syrian military jet has been intercepted near the Syrian-Turkish border after it violated the Turkish airspace, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said. Conflicting reports said the jet was shot down from the ground and crashed on the Syrian side.

The Syrian Air Force jet was shot down near the Kasab crossing in Latakia province, where fierce fighting between Syrian forces and armed insurgents has been going on for three days, Reuters reported.

Addressing supporters at a Sunday rally, Erdogan confirmed that Turkish armed forces had downed the jet.

“A Syrian plane violated our airspace. Our F-16s took off and hit this plane. Why? Because if you violate my airspace, our slap after this will be hard,” Erdogan said, congratulating the Turkish Air Force on its actions.

The General Staff of the Turkish Armed Forces issued a statement saying the downed jet flew 1.5 kilometers (0.9 miles) into Turkish airspace despite warnings. According to the statement, two Syrian MiG-23 fighter jets approached the Turkish border. When the jets came within 10 nautical miles of the border, Turkish forces sent out “four warning signals.” One of the MiGs left, while the other was intercepted by two Turkish F-16s after breaching the airspace, the General Staff claimed.

The statement noted that the jet went down “1,200 meters to the south of the border on the Syrian territory in Kasab region,” adding that Turkish border guards “observed its fall.”

Earlier reports suggested the jet came down in Syrian territory while bombing targets in Latakia.

“Turkish air defenses targeted a Syrian fighter bomber as it struck areas of the northern province of Latakia. The plane caught fire and crashed in Syrian territory,” the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights was quoted as saying by AFP.

Turkey’s Doğan News Agency claimed that the jet crashed in the buffer zone between the Syrian region and Turkey’s Hatay Province. Hatay, formerly Sanjak of Alexandretta, was annexed by Turkey in 1939. Damascus has not officially relinquished its rights of sovereignty over the territory, although during Syrian-Turkish discussions in 2005, Syrian President Bashar Assad’s government said it did not have such claims.

Recently, the Syrian government has complained to the UN that Turkey was providing cover to rebels crossing the border from Turkish territory. The accusations were prompted by fighting at Kasab, which the insurgents view as a key crossing and a springboard for their latest offensive in Latakia. On Tuesday, Al-Qaeda-affiliated, al-Nusra Front, and Islamist groups, Sham al-Islam and Ansar al-Sham, announced the launch of an attack on Latakia they dubbed “Anfal.”

Syria reacted to the downing of the jet by calling it blatant Turkish aggression.

A Syrian Air Force spokesman was quoted as saying, by the SANA agency, that Turkish forces carried out a “downright aggressive action” by firing at a jet that was “pursuing the gangs of terrorists over the Syrian territory and did not violate the Turkish airspace.”

The pilot of the plane managed to eject on time, the Syrian official added.

The fighting in Latakia province, in which insurgents have been attempting to seize pro-government Alawite villages and Syrian forces have retaliated with air raids, has left at least 80 people dead on both sides of the conflict since March 21, according to the UK-based Observatory.

Moscow: No troop build-up or undeclared military activity near Ukraine borders

NOVANEWS

RIA Novosti / Evgeny Yepanchintsev

Russia is observing all international agreements on troop limits in regions bordering Ukraine, the Russian Deputy Defense Minister said, adding that foreign missions’ inspections can confirm that.

The statement was made in response to reports by several foreign media outlets over concentrations of “thousands” of Russian servicemen on the Russian-Ukrainian border.

“By the way this issue has during the last month been regularly raised in telephone conversations between Russia’s Minister of Defense Sergey Shoigu, and his foreign counterparts, including US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and even acting Ukrainian Defense Minister Igor Tenyukh,” Anatoly Antonov, the Russian Deputy Defense Minister said.

Sergey Shoigu has, in a very transparent manner, informed all of them about the real situation on the Russian-Ukrainian border. He also stressed that Russia has no intention to concentrate troops there, Antonov said.

Following recent probes by foreign missions in Russia of Ukraine’s bordering regions, foreign inspectors came to the conclusion that “Russian Armed Forces are not undertaking any undeclared military activity that would threaten the security of neighboring countries,” Antonov added.

The official said eight foreign inspection groups have recently visited Russia.

“Our venues and regions, where troops are stationed near Ukrainian borders, have twice been checked by the Ukrainian military,” the Deputy Minister said. “Besides, we have had on our territory inspectors from the US, Canada, Germany, France, Switzerland, Poland, Latvia, Estonia and Finland.”

Seven of those eight missions were interested in Russian regions bordering with Ukraine, Antonov said. Foreign inspectors were allowed to talk to chiefs of the Russian military units, make pictures of deployment sites and military vehicles, and control them during relocation.

“We did our best to meet our partners’ requests by allowing them to inspect all of the sites they wanted to. We have nothing to hide,” Antonov said.

The deputy minister said he was hoping that participants of those inspecting missions would inform their countries’ leaderships of what is really going on at the border between Russia and Ukraine.

“We believe this would to large extent facilitate release of tension, something the head of the Pentagon, Hagel, called for during his recent phone conversation with Minister Shoigu.”

Germans, French ‘nullified military co-op with Russia under pressure’

Berlin’s and Paris’ moves to halt military cooperation with Moscow are derailing the bilateral efforts of recent years and are completely unconstructive, Antonov said. However, according to the defense official, the two did so under pressure from their NATO ally.

“Obviously, the proverbial ‘Atlantic solidarity’ has made our French and German partners come up with loud statements against Russia,” Antonov said.

“Refusing from contacts and delegatory exchange though military departments brings to naught the positive tendencies established in the recent years, including the cooperation on Afghanistan, the dialogue on transparency of military activity and military-technical cooperation. We perceive the decision of the German side as taken under pressure and unconstructive,” Antonov stressed.

Both Russian and German defense ministries have recently undertaken some “serious efforts” in mutually beneficial cooperation, the official noted. He also highlighted the “unprecedented” bilateral work with France, including that of the Air Forces and Airborne Forces, noting that a “new impulse of cooperation” had been planned for 2014.

Addressing media on Sunday, Antonov stressed that Russia and its European partners are equally interested in military cooperation. It is “very easy to ruin what has been done by our countries [in the field of military cooperation] and it will be very difficult to restore relations,” he said.

The Russian side hopes that Germany and France will review the situation on the Ukrainian border upon receiving reports from the international inspectors and will move to restore the severed ties, Antonov said. For now, Moscow will act in accordance with the “existing realities,” he added.

Zio-Nazi Massacre: Deir Yassin Remembered

NOVANEWS

When You Remember Deir Yassin is a collection of poems by R. L. Green, an American Jewish writer, on the subject of the occupation and destruction of Palestine.

Green comments: “Outspoken Jewish critics of Israeli crimes against humanity have, strangely, been called “anti-Semitic” and as well as the hilariously illogical epithet “self-hating Jews.” As a Jewish critic of the Israeli government, I have come to accept these accusations as a stamp of approval and a badge of honor, signifying my own fealty to a central element of Jewish identity and ethics: one must be a lover of truth and a friend to the oppressed, and stand with the victims of tyranny, not with the tyrants, despite tribal loyalty or self-advancement. These poems were written as expressions of outrage, and of grief, and to encourage my sisters and brothers of every cultural or national grouping to speak out against injustice, to try to save Palestine, and in so doing, to reclaim for myself my own place as part of the Jewish people.”

The poems are offered in the original English with Arabic translations accompanying each poem.

Praise for When You Remember Deir Yassin
“Robert Green’s anguished poetry speaks with raw emotion, evoking the decades of conflict and intimate injustices between Arab and Jew in the land that is now Israel and Palestine. As a Jewish writer, Green is as familiar with the tragedy of the Nazi Holocaust as the massacre at Deir Yassin. He challenges his friends and family to open their hearts to the experiences of the people who bore the brunt of the Jewish catastrophe, the subsequent ‘War of Liberation’, and the ongoing brutality of the Israeli occupation. By bluntly giving voice to the voiceless, he also challenges us all to join in his vision with both compassion and outrage.”

Jewish Arabist is DC’s new envoy to Syria

Zionist Daniel Rubenstein, a former consul  general in Jerusalem, will  succeed Zionist Puppet ambassadorRobert Ford in war-torn country

Times of Israel

Daniel Rubenstein, one of the State Department’s leading “Arabists,” will fill the sizable shoes of retired US Special Envoy to Syria Ambassador Robert Ford, the State Department confirmed Monday.

Rubenstein, a fluent Arabic speaker and Mideast expert, was tapped for the position in 2009, when the US renewed diplomatic ties with Syria, but was passed over as he had just taken up a key Jerusalem position months earlier.

In a statement Monday morning, US Secretary of State John Kerry said that he was certain that Rubenstein will be an “outstanding successor” to Ford. Kerry said that Rubenstein, who has held several positions in Arabic-speaking countries, is “widely respected in the region” and that he is “among our government’s foremost experts on the Middle East.”

The US closed its embassy in Damascus in February 2012, pulling out all consular staff. Its interests in Syria have been handled by a special section in the Czech Embassy there since.

Rubenstein, a Jewish American who is married to foreign service officer Julie Adams, most recently served as the Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Bureau of Intelligence and Research. From 2009 to 2012, he served as Consul General and Chief of Mission in Jerusalem, a position that includes functioning as Washington’s principal mission to the Palestinian Authority.

Mideast conflict zones are familiar ground for Rubenstein. Before Jerusalem, the veteran diplomat served as Chief of the Civilian Observer Unit in the Multinational Force and Observers in Sinai.

Among his other Middle East postings were Amman, Baghdad, Tunis, Tel Aviv and Damascus in an earlier iteration. Stateside, Rubenstein also served as the director of the State Department’s Office of Israel and Palestinian Affairs.

The veteran diplomat is a graduate of University of California at Berkeley and speaks Hebrew, Portuguese – and of course, Arabic. Rubenstein displayed his Arabic in a message that he recorded in Washington, DC, marking his first day in the position and the three-year-anniversary of the beginning of the civil war that has killed over 100,000 people.

In the message posted to YouTube and the virtual US Embassy Damascus Facebook page that functions as the administration’s voice to Syrians, Rubenstein marked the anniversary of the war, a period he described as “three years of unimaginable pain and lasting consequence.”

“This week is indeed a somber occasion and a sober reminder to all of us of the work still ahead and the United States will stand with you,” Rubenstein told his Syrian audience nearly 6,000 miles away. “While the response of the Assad regime may be injustice, may the might of the just be greater.”

Former co-workers of Rubenstein characterized the career diplomat as “smart and talented,” citing his service in Jerusalem as evidence that he was well-prepared to navigate complex diplomatic environments.

Still, former State Department officials warned that Rubenstein is inheriting “an impossible situation that is not tractable, or amenable to a significant amount of influence by the United States.”

“Daniel is a very talented officer,” one former official said, “but he’s not the issue. Nobody under these circumstances could make a significant impact.”

Nevertheless, Rubenstein is in the position to try to accomplish the seemingly impossible. The newly minted special envoy is expected to travel to the region later in March to begin consultations with Syrians.

“Special Envoy Rubinstein’s leadership and counsel will be vital as we redouble our efforts to support the moderate opposition, shore up our partners, counter the rise of extremism that threatens us all, and address the devastating humanitarian crisis and its impact on the neighboring states,” Kerry said.

Rubenstein’s predecessor in the position, Ford, was forced to leave the country in 2011, after he was targeted by pro-Assad forces.

Ford retired from the State Department in February after three decades of service with the State Department. Ford had been suggested as the next US ambassador to Egypt, but the Egyptian military government reportedly indicated that it was uncomfortable working with Ford.

Ford stood at the forefront of Washington’s policy of supporting the anti-Assad opposition and taking a harsh tone toward Syrian President Bashar Assad, and officials in Cairo reportedly were concerned that he had become too close to Islamist elements.

Zio-Nazi Yuval Steinitz  says military  operation  needed in order to halt  'terrorist' groups’ ongoing armament

Times of Israel

Intelligence Minister Yuval Steinitz asserted Tuesday that the IDF will ultimately have no choice but to reoccupy the Gaza Strip for a limited period of time in order to deter Palestinian terrorist groups from firing rockets into Israeli territory.

During a visit to the southern town of Sderot, Steinitz claimed that the rate at which Gaza terrorist groups were arming themselves was reminiscent of the Lebanese terror organization Hezbollah, and said that a military operation was required in order to ensure that Israeli civilians in the south remained safe.

“At a certain point we will have to take over the Strip for some limited time in order to halt Hamas and Islamic Jihad’s heavy missiles and long-range rocket armament, which reminds us of Hezbollah’s stockpiling [of rockets] in Lebanon,” he said.

A military takeover of Gaza, he continued, would be carried out in a manner similar to 2002′s Operation Defensive Shield, during which the IDF temporarily took control of Palestinian cities in an attempt to wipe out terrorist strongholds across the West Bank in the wake of a surge in suicide attacks.

Steinitz added that since the Palestinian Authority had failed to effectively govern the Strip and prevent terrorist groups from targeting Israeli civilians and smuggling arms, Israel must “be very careful” before deciding to entrust PA President Mahmoud Abbas with any further security responsibilities.

Steinitz’s statements echoed statement made by Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman, who, in response to a massive rocket bombardment of southern Israel last week, said the IDF should reoccupy the Gaza Strip. Liberman noted that the Israeli government must defend its citizens even if it jeopardized peace talks with the Palestinians.

“There is no way to avert a full occupation of the Gaza Strip; only then can we ensure that these images do not recur,” the foreign minister said. “We cannot ignore such an attack, a barrage of 50 rockets and mortar shells.”

Dozens of rockets as well as mortar rounds were fired from the Gaza Strip at southern Israeli towns from Wednesday to late Thursday last week. In an initial response hours later, the IDF fired tank shells at what it termed “terror targets” in the Strip. Later it would attack a series of installations in the Strip in a series of airstrikes.

No Israeli casualties were reported in what was the largest attack from the Strip since Operation Pillar of Defense in late 2012.

On Thursday afternoon, Islamic Jihad announced that a truce with Israel — hammered out in the wake of Operation Pillar of Defense — had been resumed, and rocket fire tapered out over the weekend.

Tehran has outwitted West ‘in Persian bazaar,’ Zio-Nazi defense minister says, slamming Obama for radiating weakness worldwide, risking more terror at home

Times of Israel

Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon on Monday issued a scathing critique of the Obama administration, declaring that Israel cannot rely on the US to thwart Iran’s nuclear program, accusing the administration of broadcasting weakness throughout the world, and warning that its perceived weakness was inviting further terrorism against US targets.

Speaking at a Tel Aviv University event reported by the Haaretz daily, Ya’alon said Israel could not afford to rely on the Obama administration to lead an action against Iran’s nuclear program, and that Israel could only rely on itself. Israel had believed that “the one who should lead the campaign against Iran is the US,” but instead, “the US at a certain stage began negotiating with them, and unfortunately in the Persian bazaar the Iranians were better,” he said. Therefore, “we (Israelis) have to look out for ourselves.”

Ya’alon’s office confirmed his remarks about Iran, but refused to comment as to whether the defense minister was advocating an Israeli strike on Iran. Ya’alon was widely reported to have opposed an Israeli resort to force against Iran in the past, but the Haaretz report said his comments Sunday indicated that he had changed his stance, and was now inclined to support Israeli military intervention in Iran.

In his reported remarks Sunday, Ya’alon was adamant that “Iran is fooling the world” about its nuclear program,” but said the West preferred to put off any confrontation — “to next year, or the next term; but it will blow up in the end.” The Iranians had been “on all fours” because of sanctions and diplomatic isolation, but had been allowed to recover, he charged. The interim deal signed in Geneva in November “is very comfortable for the Iranians,” he said, enabling them to establish themselves as a threshold state “and break out to the bomb when they choose to do so.”

Ya’alon spoke as world powers and Iran are set to start a new round of talks over Iran’s contested nuclear program in Vienna. Iran denies it seeks nuclear weapons. On Sunday Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif predicted that the talks, scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday, would not produce a final deal. Iran capped uranium enrichment after the six-month interim deal was struck in November, in return for easing non-core sanctions by the West.

Moving to a wider critique of the Obama administration, Ya’alon reportedly stressed several times that the US was radiating weakness in every region worldwide. “The Sunni camp [in the Middle East] expected that the US would support it, and would be as determined as Russia is in its support of the Shiite axis,” he was quoted as saying. “I hear voices of disappointment in the region. I was in Singapore, and I heard disappointment at the strengthening of China and the weakening of the United States. Look what’s happening in the Ukraine; there, to my sorrow, the US is broadcasting weakness.”

Ya’alon, a former IDF chief of General Staff, warned that if the US continued to show weakness internationally, its own national security would be severely damaged. “If you wait at home, terror will come calling again,” he said. “This is a war of civilizations. If you are perceived to be weak, that certainly does not pay in the world. I hope the US will reassert itself.”
