Rabin never backed Palestinian statehood, Ya’alon claims


In Washington, defense minister says that while Israel extends its hand in peace,Arab leaders incite and spread lies
ed note–as we like to say here on this website, ‘fish swim, birds fly and Jews lie’, and as such virtually NOTHING that comes out of the mouth of Israel or her supportersworldwide can be taken at face value, nevertheless there is another truism that must be considered as well, which is that even a broken clock is right twice a day, and inthis case, Ya’alon is probably telling a bit of the truth.
Rabin is always painted by his leftist supporters as a‘man of peace’ who brokered theOslo accords, but it must also be remembered that Rabin was also the one who ordered the IDF to break the arms and legs of Palestinians who dared resist their occupiers  and oppressors, a video of which can be seen here.
Having said this, it is important to note  that the entire  posture that is employed with regards to Rabin is a mirrored image of what is taking place today with those   'good Jews’, and ‘Jews of  conscience’ who  make a show of  ‘wanting peace’ with the Palestinians. IT IS ALL AN ILLUSION. They are there to act as a hologram of sorts in confusing Gentiles as to what the real nature of Judaism is and to provide ‘wiggle   room’ for Judaism’s defenders employing the black magic of hasbara so that they can  point to people such as  Rabin and  say ‘LOOKIE! SEE? NOT EVERYONE IS LIKE NETANYAHU AND THE NUTCASE RIGHT-WINGERS.
Furthermore, Oslo was in and of itself an illusion that was allowed to take place so that Israel could create the fiction that she ‘wants peace’ and that she is willing  to negotiate with the Palestinians, but, alas, all for nothing, as the Palestinians  are driven by an irrational  hatred of Jews and  therefore  there is no ‘negotiating partner’ and therefore Israel is–for reasons related to her own security, of course– perfectly justified in stealing more land and in  imposing even  more of her brutal, barbaric behavior against a defenseless people.
Again, at the risk of over-repetition, what Gentiles the world over must recognize isthat–just as Israel’s  Mossad  proudly  boasts in her motto ‘by way of deception, we shall make war’–Fish swim, birds fly, and Jews lie.

Times of Israel

Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon on Monday highlighted late prime minister Yitzhak Rabin’s opposition to the realization of Palestinian statehood, stressing that while Rabin pursued peace and regional stability, he was nevertheless acutely aware of the complex challenges facing the Jewish state and determined to never compromise on its security.

“When he brought the Oslo Accords to the Knesset for approval, Yitzhak [Rabin] did not flinch,” Ya’alon said at a memorial event in Washington, DC, to mark the 20th anniversary of the late prime minister’s assassination.

“He knew we had to firmly protect our security interests, in order to ensure peace and security for the citizens of Israel,” he said.

Ya’alon further added that Rabin had always been suspicious of the Palestinian leadership’s true intentions and would not accept the establishment of a Palestinian state in the entire West Bank.

“In [Rabin’s] speech to the Knesset bringing [the second Oslo accord] to be approved, he emphasized that in a permanent agreement, ‘The Palestinian entity will be less than a state,’” the defense minister said.

“Rabin was consistent on this issue. In another speech he gave in 1974, he said: ‘A Palestinian state in the West Bank will be the beginning of the end of the State of Israel’… In [another] speech to the Knesset, one month prior to his assassination, he illustrated the borders of the Palestinian entity in the permanent agreement, and said, ‘We will not return to the June 4, 1967 lines,’ because they are indefensible,” Ya’alon recalled.

Commenting on a spate of stabbings, shootings and car-ramming attacks carried out by Palestinian terrorists in Israel and the West Bank in recent weeks, Ya’alon said that Israel truly hoped to achieve peace in the region, and asserted that claims aimed at riling up potential assailants and at undermining the state’s legitimacy were patently false.

“In recent weeks, Israel has faced an intense wave of terror attacks perpetrated by Palestinians, who have been driven by incitement and lies against the State of Israel,” he said.

“This is an opportunity to say it again, loud and clear: We extend our hand in peace to our Palestinian neighbors. The State of Israel is not violating the status quo on the Temple Mount, whatsoever. This is a lie. We uphold freedom of religion and respect the beliefs of every person,” declared Ya’alon.

The Temple Mount compound, which has been at the center of the recent spike in unrest, houses the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock, and was the site of two ancient Jewish temples. The site is sacred to both Jews and Muslims. Israel has repeatedly denied persistent Palestinian allegations to the effect that it seeks to change the arrangements at the site in order to allow Jews to pray there.

Earlier Monday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, speaking at the Knesset during a special session honoring Rabin, blamed the failure of peace talks on the Palestinians’ refusal to recognize the right of the Jewish state to exist.

“There is a profound reason why we didn’t achieve peace,” said Netanyahu, who, as Likud leader, was a vocal opponent of the Oslo Accords during the last Rabin government. “[The Palestinians] aren’t prepared to recognize once and for all the national state of the Jewish people, they are not truly prepared to end the conflict and give up the dream of returning to Haifa, Jaffa and Acre.”

Reiterating points he had made earlier in the day — during a ceremony at Rabin’s graveside on Jerusalem’s Mount Herzl — Netanyahu said Israel is combating “incitement and terror with all our strength.

“We all know: Peace needs to be anchored in security,” Netanyahu told lawmakers, past and present, and Rabin’s family in the Knesset gallery. “We need to negate the hope of the Palestinians and all our enemies, who one day will subdue us with the force of the sword. Will we forever live by the sword? If we loosen our grip on what’s ours, their sword will vanquish us.

“Rabin understood this well. He was a realistic leader, he didn’t blame ourselves for terrorism, he was utterly devoid of self-flagellation,” he said.

Confidential files on El Salvador human rights stolen after legal action against CIA


Image result for School of the Americas, PHOTO

Confidential files containing evidence of violations committed during El Salvador’s civil war have been stolen from a Washington-based human rights group days after it launched legal proceedings against the CIA over classified files on a former US-backed military commander implicated in massacres, death squads and forced disappearances. A computer and hard drive containing testimonies from survivors were stolen from the office of the director of the University of Washington Center for Human Rights (UWCHR) last week. The director’s office was the only one raided, there were no signs of forced entry, and items of monetary value were left behind. The stolen files contained details of investigations related to the 1980-1992 civil war, which left at least 75,000 people dead, 8,000 missing and a million displaced.

The vast majority of crimes were committed by US-backed military dictatorships against civilians … suspected of supporting the leftist guerrillas, according to the UN. Perpetrators were granted immunity from prosecution by a 1993 amnesty law, which remains intact despite being ruled illegal by the Inter American Court of Human Rights. The UWCHR has uncovered previously unseen information held by federal agencies such as the CIA and DEA, which it has shared with relatives of victims. The group filed a freedom of information suit against the CIA on 2 October. The sensitive files were stolen two weeks later.

Several rights groups in El Salvador investigating war crimes have suffered similarly suspicious robberies.

Note: Several military human rights abusers in El Salvador were trained by the US Army’s School of the Americas, along with over 500 known human rights abusers.

‘The Devil’s Chessboard,’


By: David Talbot

Despises Allen Dulles. As director of the CIA, Talbot declares, Dulles exemplified the “frightening amorality that prevailed at the pinnacle of American power” at the height of the Cold War. As a lawyer for Sullivan and Cromwell in the 1930s, Dulles protected and promoted Nazi-controlled cartels.

He used his influence in the Office of Strategic Services and the CIA to shield former Nazis from prosecution for war crimes in the ’40s and ’50s. Dulles organized the disastrous Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba, [and was] willing to manipulate and undercut American presidents. In The Devil’s Chessboard,” David Talbot, the founder and former editor in chief of Salon and former senior editor atMother Jones, examines Dulles’ career and adds several more “achievements” to his dark resume. Talbot’s indictment is long.

He suggests that had President Franklin D. Roosevelt lived, Dulles might well have faced criminal charges for hiding the U.S. assets of German corporations and destroying incriminating evidence. By 1963, Talbot insists, a clear consensus had emerged among corporate leaders “and within America’s deep state” that Kennedy was a threat to national security and had to be removed. Dulles, they concluded, “was the only man with the stature, connections, and decisive will to make something of this enormity happen.” [Dulles] then lobbied Lyndon Johnson to appoint him to the Warren Commission, where he saw to it that Lee Harvey Oswald would take the fall as the “lone gunman.”

Note: Read another good article on Talbot’s book revealing evidence in the JFK killing. And isn’t it interesting that no other major media seemed to find this book worth a review, even though Talbot is well known as the founder of the website Salon.

Manhunting in the Hindu Kush

From 2011 to 2013, the most elite forces in the U.S. military, supported by the CIA and other elements of the intelligence community, set out to destroy the Taliban and al Qaeda forces that remained hidden … along Afghanistan’s northeastern border with Pakistan. Dubbed Operation Haymaker, the campaign has been described as a potential model for the future of American warfare.

The military’s own analysis demonstrates that the Haymaker campaign was in many respects a failure. The vast majority of those killed in airstrikes were not the direct targets. Nor did the campaign succeed in significantly degrading al Qaeda’s operations in the region.

The frequency with which “targeted killing” operations hit unnamed bystanders is among the more striking takeaways from the Haymaker slides. [Documents obtained by The Intercept] show that during a five-month stretch of the campaign, nearly nine out of 10 people who died in airstrikes were not the Americans’ direct targets. Larry Lewis, formerly a principal research scientist at the Center for Naval Analyses, … found that drone strikes in Afghanistan were 10 times more likely to kill civilians than conventional aircraft. This month, an American airstrike on a hospital run by the international organization Médecins Sans Frontières … killed at least a dozen members of the humanitarian group’s medical staff and 10 patients, including three children. A nurse on the scene recalled seeing six victims in the intensive care unit ablaze in their beds.

For Some Military Families, President Obama’s Decision To Keep Troops In Afghanistan Is ‘Another Knife’ In The Heart


U.S. President Barack Obama’s pledge Thursday to keep American troops in Afghanistan through 2016 was the last thing Mary Hladky wanted to hear. “It’s what we were dreading,” said the mother of three, whose son Ryan is in the National Guard after serving in the Army from 2009 to 2013 and in Afghanistan during the surge in 2011. She said announcements such as the one Obama made last week no longer surprise her, but they are still very upsetting.

In May 2014, Obama said it was “time to turn the page on … the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq,” saying he would withdraw the last American troops from the former country by 2016. Thursday, the president reversed course, saying the U.S. would keep at least 9,800 troops in the Central Asian nation through most of 2016, with at least 5,500 of them there at the end of next year. Obama … was joined by Vice President Joe Biden and top military leaders when he made the announcement in Washington. After her son’s deployment, Hladky joined a group called Military Families Speak Out (MFSO), which has for years urged lawmakers to bring U.S. troops back from the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq. Although Obama said last week he opposes the idea of what he called “endless war,” it appears the decision to conclude what is now a 14-year-old conflict in Afghanistan will no longer be his to make, given the end of his term in office in January 2017. Meanwhile, his move has resulted in a tremendous amount of anger and betrayal being felt among many military families.

Ex-MP to be interviewed by police over paedophile ring claims


Esther Baker in Brighton.

A former MP is to be interviewed under caution by police over claims that he was part of a paedophile ring who repeatedly sexually assaulted a young girl in the 1980s and 1990s. The man has been in communication with Staffordshire police, who are investigating. The alleged victim, Esther Baker, waived her right to anonymity to make the claims public in May. She has said her abusers possibly included a peer and a judge, and that the abuse went on for four years from the age of six, in the woodland and at other locations, often while police officers stood guard. Baker has also alleged that she was sexually abused at a flat in London, which she now believes to be Dolphin Square – the location at the centre of the Metropolitan police’s Operation Midland inquiry into the alleged murders of three children by high-profile individuals in a paedophile ring.

The former politician, who has not been named … is one of 1,400 high-profile individuals who have been or are under police investigation across the country for child abuse dating back decades. They include 76 politicians, alive and dead, 135 celebrities and 43 people from the music industry. The case has been referred to Operation Hydrant, a national team coordinating the investigations taking place across the country, which was set up in the wake of the Jimmy Savile revelations and the increase in reporting of child sexual abuse which followed.

Liberal senator Bill Heffernan says former prime minister a suspected paedophile


Image result for former Australian prime minister PHOTO…

A former Australian prime minister is on a list of “alleged paedophiles” that Liberal senator Bill Heffernan claims forms part of a police document. Senator Heffernan used a Senate estimates committee hearing on Tuesday to discuss the list of 28 people. Many … named in the documents were “prominent”. Senator Heffernan had shown the documents to the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse but was told they were not part of its terms of reference. The commission, which was established in 2014, has inquired into child abuse in a wide range of institutions, including sporting groups, churches and after-school care services. It has power to look at abuse that occurs in an institutional context. Senator Heffernan called for the commission’s terms to be changed to include the “institution of the law”.

He accused former royal commissioner Justice James Roland Wood of refusing to investigate lawyers who had allegedly attended a Kings Cross “boy brothel”. “I did ask the commissioner why. He said he’d deny if I ever mentioned it,” Senator Heffernan said. “[The commissioner] said, ‘We’ve decided not to revisit that issue because the public would lose confidence in the judiciary.'” The senator said he had a list of all of the lawyers who allegedly attended the club, some of whom were still practising.

USA: FCC gives inmates price break on prison phone calls


The Federal Communications Commission voted to cap the price that phone companies can charge for calls to and from prison inmates, which they say can run up to a staggering $14 per minute. The rates for prison phone calls far exceed those of the general public, with the financial burden falling on the families of the more than 2 million incarcerated Americans. Under the new rules, scheduled to go into effect in early 2016, most prison inmates will not be charged more than 11 cents per minute for any call. The rules will … also curb the extra charges that can often tack on up to an extra 70 percent, according to the commission.

“The truth is that each of us is paying a heavy price for what is now a predatory, scaled market regime,” said Democratic FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn. “Not one of us here would ever consider paying $500 a month for a voice-only service where calls are dropped routinely for no reason.” While they don’t ban them outright, the new FCC rules also strongly discourage what they describe as kickbacks, the commission phone companies usually pay correctional facilities to win lucrative phone service contracts. “Incarceration is a policy choice, and it’s imminently unfair to then ask the families to pay for the correctional budgets,” said Aleks Kajstura, legal director at the Prison Policy Initiative … citing the case of one inmate who faced a $56 bill for a four-minute conversation with a pro bono attorney.

In The NY Times, Zionist Injuries Make Headlines, Palestinian Deaths Are Footnotes

Image result for NEW YORK TIME LOGO
By Barbara Erickson

These are the last moments of 17-year-old Hebron schoolgirl Dania Irsheid, as described by witnesses: Raising her hands above her head, terrified by the shouts of Israeli police, Dania cried out, “I don’t have a knife.” Immediately, one shot hit the ground between her legs; then a hail of bullets followed, and she fell.

A video shows her lying motionless, her white headscarf stained with blood, as police mill about but make no attempt to assist her. The terrible scene took place at a checkpoint near Hebron’s Ibrahimi Mosque on Sunday.

Her death merited a brief and anonymous mention in The New York Times. Far into a story about the changing tactics of Palestinian Authority security forces, we find this single sentence: “Elsewhere in the West Bank, an Israeli police officer fatally shot a 17-year-old Palestinian girl who tried to stab him, The Associated Press reported.”

Witnesses at the scene said she had no knife and had already passed through two metal detectors and revolving doors before opening her book bag for inspection at the mosque site. Israeli police, however, released a statement saying she was a “female Arab terrorist” and had been “neutralized.”

The Times says nothing of these contradictions, and it has maintained a resounding silence over other Palestinian deaths, including the shooting of two Hebron schoolboys who were killed last week, also in disturbing and disputed circumstances. (See TimesWarp 10-21-15).

On the other hand, the newspaper has taken pains to draw readers’ attention to an alleged stabbing attack on an Israeli citizen, which left the victim “moderately wounded” and resulted in the death of one Palestinian and the arrest of another.

The story appeared online five days ago, on Oct. 22, and was still present on the Middle East page through most of today’s online edition (it disappeared only after this post came out) under the headline “Jewish Man Stabbed in Israel by Palestinians as Violence Continues.” The article, touted so tenaciously on the Times website, is a mere 270 words and sketchily reported, but it outlasted other breaking news from the region with unusual longevity.

The death of Dania Irsheid merited no headline in the Times while the “moderate wounding” of an Israeli man was repeatedly flagged for online viewers. It is clear from this (and many other choices they make) that the newspaper’s editors have an agenda of their own, one that is inconsistent with accepted journalistic standards.

Israel is to be the perennial victim. Palestinians are to be the aggressors. Any deviation from this narrative causes dissonance at theTimes.

Thus we find no stories about the harried and fearful lives of Palestinians in Hebron, even though the situation cries out for a close look at their ordeal. (Some 16 Palestinians have been killed in the city since the beginning of this month, out of 44 in the West Bank overall and 17 in Gaza, according to the International Middle East Media Center). Nor do we find any serious examination of the brutal occupation and colonization of Palestine that fuels the resistance.

We do, however, find a Times story about youthful Palestinian attackers inspired by social media, and we find an article focused on Palestinian songs with a nationalistic and sometimes violent bent. Both these articles appeared in print on page 1, and both conveniently fit the portrait of Palestinians as aggressors.

When evidence to the contrary cannot be ignored (as in the arson deaths of three Palestinian family members this summer), theTimes turns to damage control. Thus, we have the newspaper attempting to undermine video evidence that shows Israeli security forces making false accusations or killing Palestinians who pose no threat.

This was the purpose of a story with the disingenuous headline, Conflicting Accounts of Jerusalem Strife Surround a Wounded Arab Boy.” The point of this article is not what it purports to be, an examination of two different narratives, but an effort to debunk videos and witness accounts challenging the statements of Israeli security forces.

The Times devotes 1,600 words to telling us that Palestinian Authority president Mahmoud Abba and others got it wrong when they said Ahmad Manasra, 13, caught on video as he lay bleeding in Jerusalem, had been killed. He had only been wounded, the Timesnotes, and he is now being cared for in hospital.

The Times (and Israeli officials) are using this error to claim that Palestinian testimonies cannot be trusted. Some video evidence of Israeli misconduct is irrefutable, however, and monitoring groups outside of Palestine have vouched for them, calling for an end to the use of excessive force and extrajudicial executions.

Moreover, the video of Ahmad is shocking in its revelations of Israeli settler brutality even though the boy eventually survived. And beyond this, the Times story itself makes a significant error in claiming that the boy is shown in hospital being “spoon-fed by a nurse.”

In fact, it was an attorney, Tareq Barghout, who held the spoon, as the man later testified. Barghout also said Ahmad was shackled to the bed and suffered constant verbal abuse from hospital staff. The Times story, however, included none of this information.

Israeli officials made much of the error over Ahmad’s survival, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu calling it “the new big lie,” and the Times obligingly followed suit. The overblown story is consistent with Times efforts to support the Israeli narrative and to discredit the testimony of Palestinians.

Meanwhile, three more died in Hebron on Monday, and the Times has once again failed to take notice. Palestinian deaths are—at best—footnotes in the newspaper of record while Israeli injuries are headlines. This is the unspoken but evident policy at The NewYork Times.

Zionist Erdogan police raid opposition TV station ahead of election


Image result for ERDOGAN CARTOON


Zionist Erdogan Police in Turkey have stormed the offices of an opposition television station days before the country goes to the polls. The media outlet is linked to an Islamic preacher opposed to Zionist Tayyip Recep Erdogan.

The incident took place outside the offices of Kanalturk and Bugun TV in Istanbul, while footage was broadcast live on Bugun’s website.

There were large scuffles outside the offices, where there was also a heavy police presence. Police seemed to be using pepper spray against those trying to block their path through the gate and into the building.

After a struggle, dozens of police eventually made their way through the crowd and into the building. A water cannon on the street was also used to keep demonstrators away.

The media groups are owned by Koza Ipek Holding, which has links to the Islamic preacher Fethullah Gulen, who is a political foe of Zionist Erdogan. Gulen lives in self-imposed exile in the United States.

On Tuesday, the authorities took over the management of 22 companies that were owned by Koza Ipek, Reuters reports.

Gulen was once an ally of Zionist Erdogan, but the two fell out after police and prosecutors seen as sympathetic to the preacher opened a corruption investigation against the inner circle of the Zionist Erdogan, then prime minister, in 2013. This is believed to have resulted in the crackdown against Gulen.

Gulen is facing charges of running a “parallel” structure within state institutions that was looking to topple Zionist Erdogan. Prosecutors are seeking a prison sentence of up to 34 years for Gulen.
