Trump gets caught with pants down in Yemen—again

NOVANEWS

Trump, like many of his predecessors, deserve to be behind bars for collaborating with Saudi Arabia and for bombing the school bus in Yemen.

…by Jonas E. Alexis

Donald Trump will almost certainly go down as one of the most dangerous presidents in the United States when it comes to the Middle East. There is no doubt about this anymore. The evidence is all around us. It is truly an embarrassment to riches.

Trump will go down as dangerous precisely because he knows about the disastrous effect of perpetual wars in the Middle East more than his predecessors, but he continues to tread on this destructive path anyway because he is subservient to the Israeli regime.

First, Trump had to lie to his devoted followers and supporters during his campaign by saying that he was going to place an intermission in the Middle East. He said ad nauseamthat perpetual wars have been detrimental to the United States. This was Trump back in 2016:

When you have an infrastructure of a country like ours that is absolutely decaying and rotting and falling apart and we — by the way, we’re spending $5 trillion in the Middle East instead of doing what we’re supposed to be doing. We have to knock the hell out of ISIS and all, but we have to get back to rebuilding our country because you look at our airports, our roadways, our tunnels, our bridges — 67 percent of them are in trouble.”

Trump was asked: “Have we wasted too much money over the past decade fighting wars? Has that been one of the biggest…” He responded: “Well, I’ll tell you what, I don’t mind fighting, but you have got to win and number one, we don’t win wars, we just fight, we just fight. It’s like a big — like you’re vomiting, just fight, fight, fight.”

Trump is now openly selling military weapons to Saudi Arabia, which is currently using those weapons to split Yemeni school buses to different particles. As Russia Today rightly puts it,

“It wasn’t the US-made bomb, but rather the Saudi military’s inability to properly use the munition –despite all the American training– that led to the ‘horror show’ bombing of a Yemeni school bus in August, Donald Trump has said.

“A Saudi-led coalition airstrike on a school bus, that killed 40 children and maimed dozens of others in the busy market town of Dhahyan in northern Yemen on August 9, is not Washington’s fault, Donald Trump stated in an interview with Axios on Sunday.

“Despite the fact that pieces of a 500-pound (227 kilogram) laser-guided MK 82 bomb made by Lockheed Martin were found at the site of the explosion, Trump shifted the blame for the tragedy to the coalition’s inability to use the US-supplied weapons properly.”[1]

Trump declared: “That was basically people that didn’t know how to use the weapon, which is horrible. I think it’s a terrible situation. I hated seeing what happened with the bus and the children cause that’s pure – that’s a horror show when you see a thing like that, you saw the bus.”

How stupid can we be? It’s a horror show, but you are still selling weapons to the terrorist state? It’s a horror show, but you haven’t even made an attempt to send the Saudis an ultimatum saying that the deal is over?

What if it was Assad? Wouldn’t Trump go on television preposterously declaring that America has to bomb Syria? Who is this man really fooling this time? As my dear friend Mark Dankof put it a few months ago:

Franklin Delano Roosevelt told the American public in the 1940 Presidential election that he would never send their kids into a European war the people of the United States clearly did not want, even as we now know that Roosevelt was planning to deliberately provoke war with Japan from October 1940 onward as the McCollum Memorandum of the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) to Roosevelt proves.

The bottom line is this: When the Zionist power elite of the American Establishment wants war, it will get war. It will do so through the execution of a false flag incident designed to prove the complicity and malice of the intended target in the false flag incident at hand. The media will put out the spin on the incident that this element wants to put firmly into the minds of an unsuspecting American mass public.

What kind of law is Trump breaking? Title 18 United States Code states: “Whoever willfully causes an act to be done which if directly performed by him…would be an offense against the United States, is punishable as a principal.”[2]

What we are seeing here is that Trump, like many of his predecessors, deserve to be behind bars for collaborating with Saudi Arabia and for bombing the school bus in Yemen.

THE BIGGEST FINANCIAL BACKERS OF RADICAL ISLAM

IT’S NOT A COUNTRY, IT’S A CRIME FAMILY

Some facts:

1. The “Saud” in Saudi Arabia comes from the “House of Saud”

2. The Saud family rules Saudi Arabia. There are no elections.

3. Saudi Arabia is the world’s biggest promoter of Wahhabi Islam.slam.

4. In July 2013, Wahhabism was identified by the European Parliament in Strasbourg as the main source of global terrorism.

5. The Sharia “law” that everyone is so up in arms about as practiced by ISIS is identical to the law of Saudi Arabia – and nowhere else.

Examples:

1. Blasphemy is punished by death

2. Adultery if married is punished by death by stoning (women only)

3. Adultery if single is punished by 100 lashes (women only)

4. Stealing is punished by amputation of a hand

5. Drinkinbg alcohol is punished at judges discretion up to 80 lashes

And that’s where Trump went dancing – before he cut the legs off the 2,000,000 Cubans who own and work in privately owned business and had geared up for an influx of U.S. tourists.

Syrian War Report – November 6, 2018

Syrian War Report – November 6, 2018: “Russian Mercenaries Casualties” Narrative Resurfaces In MSM


Russian-linked private military contractors (PMCs) have suffered new casualties in Syria, Syrian pro- and Russian pro-opposition militant media outlets claim.

Initial speculations on this issue appeared on November 3 and November 4 when several outlets claimed that an explosion reportedly hit barracks of the 5th Assault Corps of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in the province of Deir Ezzor.

According to one of the versions, the blast allegedly hit “a Russian military HQ” near the Panorama checkpoint near Deir Ezzor city killing at least 5 Russian PMCs as well as killing and injuring multiple SAA troops. However, no photo or video evidence, or at least confirmation from a pro-government source, were provided. The argument used to “confirm” the alleged casualties was that the 5th Assault Corps is widely-known as a Russian-backed military formation, which has been assisted by Russian military advisers.

It should be noted that according to pro-government sources the blast in the area had been caused by a decision to eliminate ISIS-made IEDs removed from the liberated areas.

By November 5, this rumor had evolved and reached Russian media. Novaya Gazeta, a Russian opposition media outlet known for a CNN-style look at the conflict in Syria, claimed that 5 Russian PMCs and 6 SAA servicemen were killed in an explosion somewhere in Deir Ezzor province on November 4. Novaya Gazeta claimed that it had received info from its own “source” in Syria, but failed to provide details of the incident, at least location, and any evidence. The article also used the Russian backing of the 5th Assault Corps as an argument to confirm the alleged casualties among Russian PMCs.

The strange thing is that this rumor faced an uncritical reception in some major Russian media outlets, which just republished it citing Novaya Gazeta.

In fact, the newspaper just repeated rumors circulating in some Arab blogs and pro-militant media claiming that this data had been received from its “source in Syria” to make the article more “solid” in the eyes of the audience.

Unfortunately, over the past few years, it has become a common approach for major Western and Russian media outlets to spread wild speculations and staged lie hiding behind “anonymous sources”.

The aforementioned story is a fresh example how these rumors are being presented as reliable or even confirmed info because they serve somebody’s narrative.

Another well-known story in this field is the speculations about “hundreds” of casualties suffered by Russian PMCs or even Armed Forces as a result of US airstrikes in eastern Syria, which erupted in February 2018. These “hundreds” of killed Russian fighters have never been confirmed and only reliable data exists about some 5 Russian citizens, who died in unclear circumstances in the conflict zone this period.

However, this did not stop the media from repeating the fake story and even top US leadership like President Donald Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo addressed it as a fact in their statements.

Zionists in US Gov’ Behind 9/11

NOVANEWS

UK Professor Under Probe for Claiming Israel, ‘Zionists in US Gov’ Behind 9/11

Sputnik/Moscow: The professor made the remarkable claim in a tweet, which has since been deleted, on Saturday, drawing condemnation and ridicule.

Professor Kees van der Pijl is being investigated by Sussex University for seemingly accusing Al-Qaeda* of being a front for Mossad and blaming Israel for 9/11.

The academic shared an article by conspiracy theory platform Wiki Spooks, alleging the Israeli government orchestrated the September 11 attacks with “help from Zionists in the US government.”

The tweet was quickly met with backlash, promptly him to delete it, and netizens mocked the professor with GIFs and sarcastic comments.

“And Elvis left the Twin Towers before impact. Idioot!” a user tweeted in response to Professor van der Pijl’s post.

Why Did the 9/11 Attacks Happen? Filling in the Blanks

Others accused him of being anti-Semitic, though he defended his actions, insisting he was only criticizing Mossad and PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud Party.

“If criticism of the hardline Likud and the Mossad, for which by now millions have died and several countries wrecked, is ‘virulently anti-Semitic’, then I am guilty,” he wrote.

Sussex University has said they are investigating the matter and are yet to decide if they will take disciplinary action against the professor, who formerly served as head of the university’s international relations department.

The same article was cited by Church of England vicar Reverend Dr. Stephen Sizer in 2015, on Holocaust Memorial Later, and was forced to swiftly apologize for his “insensitive” comments.

*Al-Qaeda is a terrorist organization banned in Russia and many other countries.

Whatever might happen above ground, the privileged will enjoy “continuity”, as they did on 9/11/01. The entrance to the Offutt Air Force Base’s bunker, very far underground. Bush officials are seen here entering it on 9/11/01.

How Naziyahu’s son became the poster boy for white supremacists

NOVANEWS

By Jonathan Cook in Nazareth

The eldest son of Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has found himself an unlikely poster boy for David Duke, a former Ku Klux Klan leader, and the neo-Nazi website Daily Stormer.

Last week these cheerleaders for Jew hatred described 27-year-old Yair Netanyahu as “awesome” and “a total bro” for posting a grossly anti-Semitic image (shown above) on social media.

It depicts an Illuminati-like figure and a reptilian creature controlling the world through money and dark arts. Alongside them are a cabal of conspirators, their faces altered to show Netanyahu’s main opponents. They include George Soros, a holocaust survivor who has invested billions in pro-democracy movements, and Ehud Barak, a former Israeli prime minister turned government critic.

This is not Yair’s first troubling outburst. Last month he emulated US President Donald Trump in decrying demonstrators who opposed a rally by white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia, that left a woman dead.

Like father, like son

These might be dismissed as the immature rantings of a wayward son, had Yair not been groomed by his father as Israel’s “crown prince”. Netanyahu Junior was supposedly behind an online media strategy that steered Netanyahu to electoral victory in 2015. He can be seen at his father’s side at meetings with world leaders.

The Israeli media were shocked not only by the post but Netanyahu’s determined refusal to criticise his son. An editorial in the Haaretz daily concluded that the prime minister’s silence signalled his “consent to the ongoing demonisation of anyone who doesn’t get in line with the Israeli right”.

Yair’s choice of targets was revealing, particularly the image’s “Grand Jew” – George Soros.

In July, Netanyahu met his Hungarian counterpart, Viktor Orban, an ultra-nationalist who has led a xenophobic campaign against immigrants. In a bid to crush opposition, the Orban government has vilified Soros, an American-Hungarian who promotes progressive causes. A billboard campaign against the billionaire unleashed a wave of anti-Semitism across the country.

As leader of a Jewish state professing to be the world’s only refuge against anti-Semitism, Netanyahu ought to have rushed to Soros’s defence. Instead he echoed Orban’s incitement. Soros, he said, had “undermined” and “defamed” Israel too – by funding human rights groups opposed to the occupation.

White supremacist allies

Sympathy with the European and US far-right is not restricted to the Netanyahu camp. It is moving into the Israeli mainstream. Last week the Herzliya conference – an annual jamboree for Israel’s security establishment – invited Sebastian Gorka as a keynote speaker.

Gorka, another American-Hungarian and Trump’s former terrorism adviser, is a figurehead of the alt-right, a term for US white supremacist groups. Gorka told the conference that Israel and the US were “founding members of the Judeo-Christian civilisation” and would defeat their “common enemies”.

Meanwhile, another US alt-right leader, Richard Spencer, appeared on Israeli TV last month to call himself a “white Zionist”.

The affinity between Netanyahu’s Israel and the West’s far-right is understandable. Both detest a human rights discourse they have yet to crush. Both mobilise their supporters with dog-whistle Islamophobia. Both prefer militarised, fear-based societies. And both share an obsession with Jew hatred.

Bonded by racism

Israel is so esteemed by white supremacists because it offers a double whammy of anti-Semitism. For decades Israel has sought to persuade the West that it faces an endless war against Arab and Muslim “terror”; while Israel also declares itself the only true home for Jews.

For an alt-right bristling with hatred for all Semites, Jews and Muslims alike, this is manna from heaven. It too wants an apocalyptic battle against Islam, and it too is happy to see the West cleared of Jews by herding them into the Middle East.

At first sight, that has created an ideological inconsistency on the Israeli right that Yair Netanyahu’s meme highlights.

The Israeli prime minister has repeatedly called on all Jews to come to Israel, claiming it as the only safe haven from an immutable global anti-Semitism. And yet Netanyahu is also introducing a political test before he opens the door.

Only Jewish supremacists welcome

Jews supporting a boycott of Israel are already barred. Now liberal Jews and critics of the occupation like Soros are increasingly not welcome either. Israel is rapidly redefining the extent of the sanctuary it offers – for Jewish supremacists only.

The paradox may turn out to be more apparent than real, however. For Netanyahu may believe he has much to gain by abandoning liberal Jews to their fate, as the alt-right asserts its power in Western capitals.

The “white Zionists” are committed to making life ever harder for minorities in the West, in a bid to be rid of them. Sooner or later, on Netanyahu’s logic, liberal Jews will face a reckoning. They will have to concede that Israel’s ultra-nationalists were right all along, and that Israel is their only sanctuary.

Guided by this cynical convergence of interests, Jewish and white supremacists are counting on a revival of anti-Semitism that will benefit them both.

With Brazil’s Bolsonaro, ”Israel” finds another natural partner on the far-right

NOVANEWS
Jair Bolsonaro

By Jonathan Cook in Nazareth

The victory of Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil’s presidential election last week has won Israel a passionate new friend on the international stage. The world’s fifth most populous nation will now be “coloured in blue and white”, an Israeli official said, referring to the colours of Israel’s flag.

The Israeli prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, immediately called to congratulate Bolsonaro, a former army officer with a pronounced nostalgia for his country’s 20-year military dictatorship. Critics describe him as a neo-fascist.

According to Israeli media reports, it is “highly probable” that Netanyahu will attend Bolsonaro’s inauguration on 1 January.

Posted by Abdul Ibrahem on Wednesday, November 7, 2018

The Brazilian president-elect has already promised that his country will be the third to relocate its embassy to Jerusalem, after the United States and Guatemala. That will further undermine Palestinian hopes for an eventual state with East Jerusalem as its capital.

… Israel has relished the recent emergence of far-right leaders across the Americas and Europe, often to the horror of local Jewish communities.

Bolsonaro has told Israel that it can count on Brazil’s vote at the United Nations, and has threatened to close the Palestinian embassy in Brasilia.

One might imagine that Netanyahu is simply being pragmatic in cosying up to Bolsonaro, given Brazil’s importance. But that would be to ignore an unmistakable trend: Israel has relished the recent emergence of far-right leaders across the Americas and Europe, often to the horror of local Jewish communities.

Bolsonaro has divided Brazil’s 100,000 Jews. Some have been impressed by the frequent appearance of Israeli flags at his rallies and his anti-Palestinian stance. But others point out that he regularly expresses hostility to minorities.

They suspect that Bolsonaro covets Israel’s military expertise and the votes of tens of millions of fundamentalist Christians in Brazil, who see Israel as central to their apocalyptic, and in many cases anti-Semitic, beliefs. Not that this worries Netanyahu.

Posted by Nafisa Alharazi on Saturday, November 3, 2018

He has been engaged in a similar bromance with Viktor Orban, the ultra-nationalist prime minister of Hungary, who barely veils his Jew-baiting and has eulogised Miklos Horthy, a Hungarian leader who collaborated with the Nazis.

Netanyahu has also courted Poland’s far-right prime minister Mateusz Morawiecki, even as the latter has fuelled holocaust revisionism with legislation to outlaw criticism of Poland for its involvement in the Nazi death camps. Millions of Jews were exterminated in such camps.

Israel is cultivating alliances with other ultra-nationalists – in and out of power – in the Czech Republic, Italy, Switzerland, Germany and Austria.

The conclusion drawn by Jewish communities abroad is that their wellbeing – even their safety – is now a much lower priority than bolstering Israel’s diplomatic influence.

… hard to ignore is that Israeli leaders, while they regularly denounce US and European left-wingers as anti-Semites for criticising Israel over its abuse of Palestinians, have remained studiously silent on Trump’s inflammatory statements.

That was illustrated starkly last week in the immediate aftermath of a massacre at a Pittsburgh synagogue on October 27. Robert Bowers gunned down 11 worshippers in the worst anti-Semitic attack in US history.

Jewish communities have linked the awakening of the white-nationalist movement to which Bowers belonged to the Trump administration’s hostile rhetoric towards immigrants and ethnic minorities.

In Pittsburgh, huge crowds protested as Trump paid a condolence visit to the Tree of Life synagogue, holding banners aloft with slogans such as: “President Hate, leave our state.”

Equally hard to ignore is that Israeli leaders, while they regularly denounce US and European left-wingers as anti-Semites for criticising Israel over its abuse of Palestinians, have remained studiously silent on Trump’s inflammatory statements.

Chemi Shalev, a commentator for the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, noted the disturbing impression created by Ron Dermer, Israel’s ambassador to the US, escorting Trump through Pittsburgh. Dermer looked like a “bodyguard”, shielding the president from local Jewish protesters, Shalev observed.

Meanwhile, tone-deaf diaspora affairs minister Naftali Bennett, leader of the largest Israeli settler party, the Jewish Home, milked the local community’s pain over the Pittsburgh massacre to Israel’s advantage. At an official commemoration service, he compared Bowers’ bullets to rockets fired by Palestinians, describing both as examples of anti-Semitism.

In an online post before the attack, Bowers singled out the synagogue for its prominent role helping refugees gain asylum in the US.

Trump has rapidly turned immigration into a “national security” priority. Last week, he sent thousands of US troops to the border with Mexico to stop what he termed an “invasion” by refugees from Central America.

Drawing on the histories of their own families having fled persecution, liberal Jews such as those at the Pittsburgh synagogue believe it is a moral imperative to assist refugees escaping oppression and conflict.

[Naftali] Bennett has termed the [African] refugees “a plague of illegal infiltrators”, while the culture minister, Miri Regev, has labelled them a “cancer”. Polls suggest that more than half of Israeli Jews agree.

That message is strenuously rejected not only by Trump, but by the Israeli government.

In a move Trump hopes to replicate on the Mexico border, Israel has built a 250 kilometre wall along the border with Egypt to block the path of asylum-seekers from war-torn Africa.

Netanyahu’s government has also circumvented international law and Israeli court rulings to jail and then deport existing refugees back to Africa, despite evidence that they will be placed in grave danger.

Bennett has termed the refugees “a plague of illegal infiltrators”, while the culture minister, Miri Regev, has labelled them a “cancer”. Polls suggest that more than half of Israeli Jews agree.

Separately, Israel’s nation-state law, passed in the summer, gives constitutional weight to the notion that Israel belongs exclusively to Jews, stripping the fifth of the population who are Palestinian citizens of the most basic rights.

More generally, Israel views Palestinians through a single prism: as a demographic threat to the Jewishness of the Greater Israel project that Netanyahu has been advancing.

In short, Israel’s leaders are not simply placating a new wave of white-nationalist and neo-fascist leaders. They have a deep-rooted ideological sympathy with them.

For the first time, overseas Jewish communities are being faced with a troubling dilemma. Do they really wish to subscribe to a Jewish nationalism in Israel that so strongly echoes the ugly rhetoric and policies threatening them at home?

Zionist stooges freak out over Baroness Jenny Tonge’s remarks – again

Israel stooges freak out over Baroness Jenny Tonge’s remarks – again
Baroness Jenny Tonge

They plot to get her removed from the House of Lords

By Stuart Littlewood

Absolutely appalling and a criminal act, but does it ever occur to Bibi [Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu] and the present Israeli government that its actions against Palestinians may be re-igniting anti-Semitism? I suppose someone will say that it is anti-Semitic to say so?

What’s wrong with that?

Everything, according to the “usual suspects” among the inquisitors that makes up the Israel lobby.

Lord Pickles, in the House of Lords on 29 October responding to a Private Notice Question, said:

My Lords, will the minister join me, along with the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, in condemning the words of the noble Baroness, Lady Tonge, in suggesting that the murders in Pittsburgh were caused by the actions of the Israeli government? That suggestion will clearly cause great pain in Pittsburgh, and falls foul of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance [IHRA] definition of anti-Semitism.

Jenny Tonge, a tireless champion of Palestinians’ rights, has fought long and hard in the struggle for their freedom. So what came as a surprise (for some) was the knife in the back from the Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC), which issued this statement on 30 October: 

In the aftermath of the massacre of 11 Jewish worshipers at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, Baroness Tonge posted a comment on Facebook that suggested Israel’s policies and its treatment of the Palestinians could be contributing to a rise in anti-Semitism generally. Baroness Tonge subsequently removed the post.

PSC regards the original pos;t to be deeply troubling. Whilst the post acknowledged that the killings were appalling and a criminal act, it risked being read as implying that anti-Semitism can only be understood in the context of a response to Israel’s treatment of Palestinians. Such a view risks justifying or minimising anti-Semitism.

The PSC told Jewish News it had “contacted Jenny Tonge to express our deep concerns at her post and is in the process of considering any further steps”.

The Israeli regime strains every sinew to ensure its behaviour is so appalling as to invite detestation and loathing, not because they are Jews but because they are the “amoral thugs” that the late Jewish MP Sir Gerald Kaufman once called them.

Jewish News also reported that Conservative Friends of Israel Parliamentary Chairman Lord Pickles and Conservative Friends of Israel Honorary President Lord Polak had condemned her “callous inflammatory” remarks. They said the post “is in clear violation of the IHRA definition of anti-Semitism adopted by the UK government. For a member of the House of Lords to publish such hateful thoughts brings Parliament into disrepute.”

Never mind that Jenny’s remark was accurate. The Israeli regime strains every sinew to ensure its behaviour is so appalling as to invite detestation and loathing, not because they are Jews but because they are the “amoral thugs” that the late Jewish MP Sir Gerald Kaufman once called them.

Remember the warning from one of their own, former Israeli Director of Military Intelligence Yehoshafat Harkabi, who wrote: “Israelis must be aware that the price of their misconduct is paid not only by them but also Jews throughout the world.”

Bibi and his adoring supporters, not Jenny Tonge, need to think about that. It remains to be seen what motivated the atrocity at Pittsburgh. But whatever the IHRA definition says, the European Convention on Human Rights and our Human Rights Act provide for freedom of expression which applies not only to information or ideas that are favourably received or regarded as inoffensive, but also to those that “offend, shock or disturb the state or any sector of the population”. Unless, of course, they call for violence, hatred or intolerance, which is not the case here.

Nothing to apologise for

Of course, the Zionists, even within her own party, have been gunning for Jenny for a very long time. A doctor by training and profession, she is used to being stabbed in the back by scaredy-cat leaders. In 2012 she was sacked after suggesting that Israel would not last for ever. She rejected an ultimatum from party leader Nick Clegg to apologise and said she stood by her remarks.

The row blew up when Jenny allegedly told a meeting at Middlesex University: “Beware Israel. Israel is not going to be there for ever in its present form… Israel will lose support and then they will reap what they have sown.” She said America would one day get sick of funding what she called America’s aircraft carrier in the Middle East. “One day, the American people are going to say to the Israel lobby in the USA: Enough is enough.”

Israel’s admirers were soon queuing up to spit their venom. The Board of Deputies of British Jews condemned Tonge’s remarks as “sinister and abhorrent”. Chief Executive Jon Benjamin said: “There is no place for someone like Jenny Tonge in mainstream political parties in this country.”

The then chief rabbi, Jonathan Sacks, said: “I am appalled at Baroness Tonge’s remarks. They are dangerous, inflammatory and unacceptable… Views such as those expressed by Baroness Tonge have no place in civil public discourse.”

The Liberal Democrat Friends of Israel applauded Clegg’s “decisive action” and hoped the sacking would “draw a line under the continual smearing of Liberal Democratic Party policy on Israel and the Middle East”. And, according to The Guardian, an unnamed Liberal Democrat spokesman said: 

Jenny Tonge does not speak for the party on Israel and Palestine. Her presence and comments at this event were extremely ill-advised and ill-judged… The Liberal Democrats are wholehearted supporters of a peaceful two-state solution to the Israel-Palestine issue.

Clegg, who was also deputy prime minister in the coalition government at the time, said:

These remarks were wrong and offensive and do not reflect the values of the Liberal Democrats. I asked Baroness Tonge to withdraw her remarks and apologise for the offence she has caused. She has refused to do so and will now be leaving the party. The Liberal Democrats have a proud record of campaigning for the rights of Palestinians, and that will continue, but we are crystal clear in our support for a two-state solution.

And a fat lot of good adopting that position has done. Even in 2012 it was obvious the two-state solution was stone dead.

However John McHugo, chair of the Liberal Democrats Friends of Palestine, said:

Jenny’s motivation in speaking up for the rights of the oppressed is anger at injustice when others, who have the duty to speak out, pass by silently on the other side of the street.

In 2004 she said about Palestinian suicide bombers: “If I had to live in that situation – and I say that advisedly – I might just consider becoming one myself.” Everyone went mad. A senior Conservative said her comments would “sicken those across the world who have lost loved ones to suicide bombers”. The ignoramus didn’t mention the thousands of Palestinian families who had lost loved ones, their homes and their livelihoods  everything – to Israeli terrorists and occupation forces.

Charles Kennedy, the then Liberal Democrat Party leader, dismissed Jenny as children’s spokesperson, saying:

Her recent remarks… are completely unacceptable. They are not compatible with Liberal Democrat Party policies and principles. There can be no justification, under any circumstances, for taking innocent lives through terrorism.

But Kennedy too couldn’t bring himself to mention the casualties inflicted by Israel’s acts of terror and frequent high-tech military strikes on an occupied and defenceless civilian population.

Then, in 2006, Jenny told a fringe meeting at her party’s conference:

The pro-Israeli lobby has got its grips on the Western world, its financial grips. I think they have probably got a certain grip on our party.

As if to prove her point, the Liberal Democrat Friends of Israel immediately issued a press release saying:

In the coming days and weeks we will work closely with colleagues inside the party to ensure every avenue is explored towards removing Baroness Tonge from the Liberal Democrat benches in the House of Lords.

The party’s leader at the time, Menzies Campbell, dissociated himself from her “offensive remarks” and “their clear anti-Semitic connotations”. Offensive? The pro-Israel lobby’s infiltration of Parliament and public life was there for all to see. That’s what was offensive. And the threat to national security was blazingly obvious. For example, our most important parliamentary security bodies – the Intelligence and Security Committee, the Foreign Affairs Committee and the Defence Committee – were all headed by senior Friends of Israel. How could that be in our national interest?

Clegg and company would do well to re-read the Preamble to their own party’s constitution, a very fine document indeed, especially where it says:

We champion the freedom, dignity and well-being of individuals, we acknowledge and respect their right to freedom of conscience… We reject all prejudice and discrimination… Our responsibility for justice and liberty cannot be confined by national boundaries; we are committed to fight poverty, oppression, hunger, ignorance, disease and aggression wherever they occur and to promote the free movement of ideas, people, goods and services.

Those principles are as good as any for guiding a person through political life. But where are they reflected in our political elite’s dealings with the scandalous injustice in the Holy Land?

And just how principled was Clegg’s sacking of one of the country’s most committed campaigners for human rights, Jenny Tonge?

Jenny’s goodbye to the Liberal Democratic Party and its sanctimonious hypocrites was a long time coming. She’s well rid of them.

PSC too timid to put down a marker for upholding international law?

And what of the Palestine Solidarity Campaign? I had suspicions in 2007 that the PSC was infiltrated at headquarters level when it refused to review or give any space at all to my book Radio Free Palestine (Foreword by Jeff Halper) even after I’d sent it two complimentary copies which it claimed had gone astray. It refused again when the book was published on the web for all to read. How’s that for “Solidarity”? Although I have every admiration for the hardworking campaigners in PSC’s local branches, the leadership has done nothing to inspire or give me confidence. Of course, it is to be expected that such a high-profile campaign group would be targeted.

At its Annual General Meeting in 2016 the PSC even threw out a proposal to seek Israel’s expulsion from the United Nations. Chairman Hugh Lanning was reported to have started proceedings on a positive note saying: “Let us recommit to Palestine to make sure that we make a difference in the coming year.”

But a motion put for the PSC’s Executive Committee to “request the government of the United Kingdom, enforced by a petition and lobbying, to submit a motion to the Security Council recommending that the General Assembly expel Israel from the UN in compliance with the UN Charter, Article 6″ failed, with 76 for and 116 against. A statement by its main sponsor, Blake Alcott, said that an identical motion to the AGM a year previously was likewise opposed by the PSC leadership who felt “the time is not yet right”. He said: “Pro-Palestinians must wonder how much worse Israel’s crimes must be before the international community takes disciplinary action.”

There is ample reason to call for Israel’s expulsion from the UN. That racist endeavour clearly isn’t the “peace-loving state” required by the UN Charter’s Article 4. Nor has it fulfilled the four conditions to its acceptance as a member back in May 1949. As the record shows, Israel has wilfully breached conditions of membership for decades. Many have argued it automatically disqualifies itself by failing to fulfill membership requirements in the first place. Furthermore it continues to show contempt for numerous UN resolution despite frequent reminders.

When considering what sort of response civil society should make, suspension sounds “softer” than expulsion as membership can be speedily restored if and when Israel satisfies the other member states that it now conforms. And in the circumstances suspension would surely be more difficult to veto. But under the rules expulsion is also an option. This is what the relevant part of the UN Charter says:

(Article 5) A member of the United Nations against which preventive or enforcement action has been taken by the Security Council may be suspended from the exercise of the rights and privileges of membership by the General Assembly upon the recommendation of the Security Council. The exercise of these rights and privileges may be restored by the Security Council.

(Article 6) A member of the United Nations which has persistently violated the principles contained in the present charter may be expelled from the organisation by the General Assembly upon the recommendation of the Security Council.

It might be argued that the passing of numerous UN Security Council resolutions amounts to “preventive action” (although still awaiting enforcement). But Article 6, which stipulates expulsion, is more clear-cut. Israel has certainly violated every norm, every rule of decency, every principle of humanity. And it continues to do so without showing a shred of remorse.

Of course, Alcott’s motion, if passed, would have been brushed aside by the British government which is pledged by successive prime ministers to protect and reward Israel right or wrong. But that is not the point. The aim of the motion was to put down a marker and provide a focus around which other campaign groups across the world could mobilise, bringing similar pressure to bear on their own governments and creating an irresistible swell of global opinion to ensure international law is eventually upheld.

The PSC failed that simple test. So how will it ever “make a difference” on behalf of the long-suffering Palestinians?

This week Jenny wrote on her Facebook page: “PSC are very worried about the furore surrounding my remarks following Pittsburgh and I have resigned to save them embarrassment!!! Sad day.”

She was a patron and had been a member for 10 years. I’d say she’s well shot of them and the Liberal Democrats, both.

Farrakhan compares Trump to Satan — Satan demands apology

NOVANEWS

Dissociated Press

Responding to a report that Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan had compared him to Donald Trump, Satan has issued an angry statement demanding an apology.

At a heavily-attended press conference (hell is full of journalists who are forced to attend press conferences for all eternity) the Prince of Evil inveighed against Farrakhan for making an unfair and hurtful comparison.

“I am the world’s greatest liar,” the Devil sneered. “Just because Trump lies all the time, he’s like me? Give me a break! Trump is the world’s second worst liar, almost as bad as his buddy Bin Salman. He couldn’t tell a plausible lie to save his soul!”

Satan argued that Trump failed to live up to the comparison on several other counts. “As the Rolling Stones so eloquently sang, ‘I’m a man of wealth and taste.’ Trump has one hell of a lot less wealth than he claims. And taste?! That stubby-fingered vulgarian wouldn’t know taste in art, literature, food, music, clothing or anything else if it snuck up and bit him on his big, fat ass! He just lolls around on the sofa watching Fox News and eating ersatz McDonalds quarter pounders with oreos, potato chips, pretzels and washing it all down with diet soda. Someone who travels with POTUS reports that ‘On Trump Force One there are four major food groups: McDonald’s, Kentucky Fried Chicken, pizza, and Diet Coke.’ Does that sound like a menu fit for the Prince of This World?”

Satan added that he had several hundred IQ points on Trump: “Me, I am nothing if not diabolically clever! I shouted out ‘Who killed the Kennedys?’ when after all it was you and me. But they never caught us, did they? Whereas that idiot Trump couldn’t even help Bin Salman come up with anything better than ‘Khashoggi died in a fistfight with 15 hit men.’ I cannot express the shame and humiliation I feel at being compared to such a dimwit.”

Satan then added that he did agree with Trump about one thing: It is time for the media to stop demonizing the 45th President of the United States. “I am sick and tired of the nonstop demonization of Trump,” Satan shouted. “Such an insult to demons!” Satan explained that he is helping launch a new GoFundMe page to raise money for a class action lawsuit against the media on behalf of demons everywhere, whose reputations are being sullied by the media endlessly and spuriously associating them with Donald Trump.

The Honorable Minister Farrakhan, who has had innumerable confrontations with Satan over the years, initially refused to back down. “I still say Trump and the devil have a lot in common,” he insisted, before finally admitting that this time the devil might have a point.

TRUMP – THE PUBLIC RECORD ‘ Video’

MEET HIS FRIENDS

A TALK BY DAVID CAY JOHNSTON

Then again I was not a fan of Obama, Bush, Clinton, Bush, Reagan, Ford, Nixon, and Johnson either.

Anyway whether you are fan or a foe, there are FACTS about the man and David Cay Johnston knows them.

Here’s the big question:

Why wasn’t Trump vetted by the news media? The facts about him were easily discovered.

Why was he given a completely free pass?

It’s a bizarre situation – and more bizarre than most people know.

I am a proud Palestinian woman and a humanitarian

NOVANEWS

I am a proud Palestinian woman and a humanitarian. I am also the mother of the youngest Palestinian prisoner in an Israeli jail.

My name is Farihan Daraghmeh Farah. I am a proud Palestinian woman and a humanitarian. I am also the mother of the youngest Palestinian prisoner in an Israeli jail. As I write this piece, on International Women’s Day, these are the things that define me. But as any parent—or any person—can imagine, no detail defines me more so than that final one.

My son, Shadi, is a smart little boy who was always full of life. He is loved by everyone who knows him—family, neighbors, friends and classmates. He is a great Dabke dancer, and a good swimmer and horseback rider. He likes to sing and is excellent at math. My husband and I have always done our best to provide for Shadi and the rest of our children, encouraging them in their education and hobbies, and teaching them to be kind, honest and open in their dealings with others. We raised them to accept people for who they are, regardless of their nationality, religion or race.

Shadi was arrested on December 30, 2015. He was just 12 years old. The news took my breath away; the whole family was in a state of shock. For a long time, none of us could eat or sleep properly. When I closed my eyes, all I could see was my little boy, scared and alone, in a freezing cold prison cell. I later learned that they had forced him to stand in there naked, at one point.

He had been waiting at the bus station in our home city of Jerusalem when Israeli police arrested him and took him to the main police station (al-Muskubiya, or the Russian Compound in Jerusalem). We were only informed of his arrest at 10 p.m. after we had become worried and reported his absence. Shadi had been accused of planning to commit a crime with a knife, despite no knife being found in his possession. During the interrogation they then asked him whether he would have stabbed an Israeli, if he had had a knife. He told them simply that he would never have been able to stab any human being.

My 12-year old son was held for four days before being moved to a “reformatory”—a detention center supposedly for those over the age of 15. After 20 court sessions during a period of one year, the final verdict was issued last December: my now 13-year old boy will spend an additional two years in prison, convicted by the draconian military legal system of a foreign power. For Israeli children, the laws are different. Now all we can do is visit Shadi as often as we can. Technically, we are allowed to see him once a week, but even with saving every penny we have, we can only afford to travel to the prison once every two weeks or sometimes once a month.

It is no exaggeration to say that our lives have been turned upside down. It feels like a living hell. My youngest, Rayan, is 3 years old and so attached to his older brother. When I look at Rayan’s face, seeing Shadi across a courtroom with his hands and feet in shackles, or when we have to leave at the end of a visit, it breaks my heart in two. As a child, you believe your parents will always be able to keep you safe. My 3-year old son, along with Shadi, has already lost that sense of safety. In this way, he has also become a prisoner of Israel and Israeli policy.

Most days I feel powerless. But, as a woman and a mother, it is my duty to stay strong for my little boy. When I was younger, I had big dreams and wanted to study law. Higher education wasn’t possible for me, but I passed that ambition on to my youngest daughter, who graduated from law school with excellent grades and now works for the Mandela Institution, focusing on issues relating to Palestinian prisoners. Her father and I could not be more proud. In the meantime, I have focused on volunteering in the community and attending special workshops on international humanitarian law, as well as studying English, French and Hebrew.

The only thing we can do now is to make Shadi’s story heard. He represents a whole generation of Palestinian children who are growing up under military occupation, and who, before even reaching their teenage years, have been subjected a level of racism and oppression that most people will hopefully never have to experience. Every one of their stories deserves to be heard. And so I have talked to media outlets locally and internationally and I have been touched by the many friends from around the world who have stood by my side in solidarity. In the United States I had many meetings, including a particularly memorable one at Kent University in Ohio, where the warm welcome of the students overwhelmed me.

My dear sisters around the world, together we must find a way to stand up in the face of oppression and discrimination, wherever these things may occur. For the sake of Shadi, for all the Palestinian children, and for humanity as a whole, please join me in speaking out, so that we can put an end to such cruel unlawful policies. It is on this day that we remember how much we’ve achieved. And together, we can achieve much more. I wish you all a happy International Women’s Day.
