PAUL BALLES: Homeland Insecurity

October 3, 2010

by Debbie Menon

“One man’s terrorist and another man’s freedom fighter”

“Terrorist” is probably the dirtiest label of the last decade. It has also proven convenient for a number of uses:

1. instil fear in the populace

2. justify large military budgets

3. excuse extra-judicial assassinations

4. deflect attention from one’s actions to another’s

Following 9/11, the US and its “coalition of the willing” entered into a War on Terror.  The so-called War on Terror conveniently served all of its uses.

As a means to instil fear, those who bandied about the terms terrorist and terrorism seldom took the time to make clear what the terms meant.

Is it terrorism if an enemy attacks a military organization, or does it apply only to attacks on civilians?

When the American military attacked the Iraq military, would that fit any definition of terrorism?  Or would it apply only to the attacks on civilians?

Calling on the same logic, can the 9/11 attack on the Pentagon (military) be on a par with the attacks on the Trade Center (civilian)?

Can governments perform terrorist acts, or are they only performed by non-governmental groups? Can Israelis be considered terrorists when they attack Lebanon or Gaza or West Bank enclaves?

When these places are attacked, are the only terrorists non-governmental, like Hezbollah in Lebanon, Hamas in Gaza or suicide bombers in the West Bank?

A woman whose son was killed said, “Israel took my home in Jaffa, now they come and kill us here, and they say WE are the terrorists.”

During the Algerian War of the 1950s, the Arab nationalist guerrilla insurgency won the title of “anti-colonial freedom fighters” while the French government, military and settlers were branded “torturers” and “terrorists”.

Do acts of terrorism apply only during peacetime?  Or are they applicable during wartime? The activities in both Iraq and Afghanistan have both been referred to as wars.

Does it matter if an act called “terrorism” is done for a good cause? Does it matter if those performing the acts have been oppressed or prevented from enjoying their fundamental human rights?

Ironically, who are the “terrorists” and who are “freedom fighters” have yet to be determined in the US war on terror.

It’s important to consider these questions very carefully before labeling anyone or members of any group, simply by virtue of their membership, as terrorists.

What some governments, particularly the United States and Israel, call terrorists, others have called resistance movements. Their members have also been called “freedom fighters”.

According to Wikipedia, “a resistance movement is a group or collection of individual groups, dedicated to fighting an invader in an occupied country…”

During the Cold War the term freedom fighter was used by the United States and other Western Bloc countries to describe rebels in countries controlled by communist states or otherwise under the influence of the Soviet Union.

Rebels against the Soviet Union were never called terrorists.  Clearly,   the distinction between terrorist and freedom fighter is nothing more than political labeling.

According to John Farmer, writing for the New York Times this week, “several federal officials warned that “home-grown terrorists” represent the nation’s greatest emerging threat.”

Robert Mueller, FBI chief has said that Al Qaeda “has looked to recruit Americans or Westerners who are able to remain undetected by heightened security measures.”

This has led Janet Napolitano, the secretary of Homeland Security, to conclude that “homeland security begins with hometown security.” And hometown security begins with locally based observations of “suspicious” activity.

Paul J. Balles is a retired American university professor and freelance writer who has lived in the Middle East for many years. For more information, see

Secret jail torturer becomes police chief in Israel


 Captain George treatment of Palestinians


YouTube – Veterans Today – 

The appointment of an infamous Israeli interrogator to a high-ranking police post has sent shockwaves among human rights groups. Known among inmates as Captain George, he’s accused of numerous cases of torture and abuse of Arabs. Now that he’s in charge of Arab affairs, many Palestinians fear for their lives. RT’s Paula Slier reports from Israel.

By Gordon Duff STAFF WRITER/Senior Editor

President Ahmadinejad of Iran has asked for a UN investigation of 9/11.  For this, he has been branded a “wingnut” and “evildoer” by the American press. 

However, the 9/11 Commission itself asked for a criminal investigation, saying it uncovered a conspiracy and was prevented from getting the truth.  They were quickly silenced. 

9 years later, top scientists from around the world, supported by engineers, architects, military and intelligence officials agree on one thing.  What thing is that?  We will never know. 

Reporting that “one thing” would be the last thing any member of the press would ever do.  A day later, they would become unpaid bloggers and have their name on the “no fly” list.  Do things like this happen?  How long did CNN’s Rick Sanchez last after pointing out that Jon Stewart’s fanatic pro-Israel bias is a form of “bigotry?”

Let’s take a second to look at Ahmadinejad.  Nearly daily stories hit newspapers around the world, “Iran is 15 minutes from being a nuclear power.”  Ahmadinejad threatens to “wipe Israel off the map.”  “Ahmadinejad supports a new holocaust.”

The press, of course, continually reviles Ahmadinejad as a terrorist and mass murderer.  What he isn’t, however, is a liar.  Every time it comes down to checking on who is telling the truth, Ahmadinejad or the press, it turns out Ahmadinejad is telling the truth.  How can this be possible?

Well, a couple of things come into play.  First of all, the press purposefully distorts what is said.  The press lies, lies consistently.  There is no nuclear program in Iran, not a weapons program.  There is no credible information that varies from this fact, yet the press continually takes a line here and a statement there, out of context, and tries to build a case for war.  Why is the press doing this?  The answer is simply, Israelis control the American press and want the United States to destroy Iran, not because it is a military threat.  It is technically impossible for Iran to attack Israel, every military expert in the world knows that and all have said it.

That will never be reported either.

Why is Ahmadinejad reviled with such venom?  The answer is simple.  He is being made an example.  Anyone who speaks up, disagrees with reality as defined by the media, not any government, mind you, but the media that tells those in every government what they can and can’t say or think, risks destruction.  There is a clear methodology here.  Let’s look at some issues the press doesn’t like very much, starting with our favorite, the villain of all time, Mr. Adolf Hitler.

Hitler got his start, speaking up much like Ahmadinejad.  After World War I, the Treaty of Versailles opened up Germany for abuse by financial criminals.  However, it even started before that.  Germany tried to quit the war in 1916 when it was winning.  Britain and France refused, not on their own, but because the Rothschilds cut financial deals with them and promised to bring the United States into the war.  5 million more Europeans died along with nearly 200,000 Americans.

The Rothschilds got the Balfour Declaration, giving them a base to control Middle East oil, the Suez Canal and India, the things that the wars nearly a century later are being manipulated to bring about.

Communism took over Russia.  Nearly every communist leader was Jewish and Zionist.  Even today, every Russian “oligarch” is a Jew and Zionist.  Hitler said that “communism’ was the real Jewish religion.  He believes he saved Germany from communism when he was elected chancellor.  The country he took over had been economically destroyed through currency manipulation.  A loaf of bread cost billions of Marks at one point.  The currency was devalued by the Rothschilds supported by France and Britain, by force.  Cash smuggled out of the country by the ton and reimbursed at full value, at gunpoint, stripping Germany clean, starvation, humiliation and, eventually, that nasty “right wing” government the world had so much trouble with, the Third Reich.

During the 1920s, when the French and British, really the Rothschilds, were destroying Germany, 80% of the property was foreclosed on and bought by, well, do we say it?  Jews?  Bought for pennies.  This is the “billions” in property the Nazi’s seized.  Not a simple story when you get to hear all of it.  An excuse, Auschwitz, Gaza, are there excuses for inhumanity?

This is all true.  This is history.  This will never be reported.  Not only will this be kept secret but the fact that the Zionist groups that wanted Palestine settled by Jews supported Hitler and worked closely with him, not just in 1927 but as late as 1945.  This is also historical fact, not conjecture.

So, lets go back to Ahmadinejad.  Why would he have a “Holocaust Conference” in Tehran?  Serious students of history that don’t have to live off a university paycheck, telling the same myths and lies term after term all know what Ahmadinejad knows.  They also know that there are some nasty secrets about the holocaust.  The real reason, however, is to anger Israel.  Why?  Israel pretty much hates everyone, is arrogant, obnoxious and predatory.

Since Israel controls, not only the press but the world banking system, all major banks being “children” of the original Rothschilds banks, including and especially the Federal Reserve which controls the American economy, the idea that Israel may have “fictionalized” the holocaust in collusion with Josef Stalin of Russia, a mass murderer well beyond anything Hitler ever imagined, interested Ahmadinejad.  Ahmadinejad never said there wasn’t a holocaust.  He simply asked for an honest and accurate historical assessment of the facts.

Israel went into a total panic.  Israel was hiding a terrible secret about the holocaust.  They still are.  We don’t know what it is, I won’t even hazard a guess.  We do know that millions were spent, tens of millions in bribe money to have laws passed suppressing any study of the holocaust.  In 11 western nations, questioning the Israeli version, one that changes hourly it seems, is a crime.

So, what was Ahmadinejad’s game?  He was simply telling Israel that “he knew.”  Knew “what?”  We don’t know and may never find out but it is something horribly discrediting to Israel, so threatening that they would stage a nuclear attack to keep it secret.  We all agree there were camps.  We all agree the Nazis were bad.  What could it be?  It is something that Iran uses to blackmail Israel, that and the fact that China, a major military power, a massive nuclear power, quietly stands behind Iran.  Nobody is supposed to know it.  We all know it.


Let’s broaden things a bit.  How do you tell if a Christian is a total phony or not?  There is a standard question:

“Who was Mary Magdalene?“

If the answer you get uses the word “whore,” you know you are dealing with someone whose religious education came from urban legends and comic books.  If you are told she was an associate of Jesus cured of “demons” you have a student of the canon gospels.  If you get a complex story of priest schools, a possible marriage of Jesus and Magdalene, Magdalene’s own gospel, her sainthood and death in France, you may have a religious scholar on your hands.

Yet today, you can turn on your radio and hear dozens if not hundreds of radio stations, all blaring the same tune, “nuclear Armageddon…Obama the Muslim….Ground Zero Mosque…….family values….and how Magdalene was the “whore of Babylon.”

The experts are all the same.  Their name starts with Doctor.”  They have a degree in “Divinity Studies” from a college that can’t be found on a satellite survey.  What their 8 years of religious education and decades of bible study, some claim over 12 hours a day, they continue to harp on about Magdalene and her sins.  Where did they get their ideas?  From a Mel Gibson movie perhaps?  Perhaps we could refer to the King James Version of the Bible as a reference:

Mt 27:56 Among which was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James and Joses, and the mother of Zebedee’s children.
Mt 27:61 And there was Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary, sitting over against the sepulchre.
Mt 28:1 In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.
Mr 15:40 There were also women looking on afar off: among whom was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the less and of Joses, and Salome;
Mr 15:47 And Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses beheld where he was laid.
Mr 16:1 And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him.
Mr 16:9 Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.
Lu 8:2 And certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven devils,
Lu 24:10 It was Mary Magdalene, and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James, and other women that were with them, which told these things unto the apostles.
Joh 19:25 Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene.
Joh 20:1 The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre.
Joh 20:18 Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that he had spoken these things unto her.

This is every biblical reference to Mary Magdalene, quoting the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.  What do we prove?  Do we prove that the religious education of most Americans is based on Hollywood films?  Dozens of films have depicted Mary Magdalene as a whore.  Why would the film industry do this?  Who runs the film industry?  If I answer my own question, will I lose my job?

vimeo – Veterans Today –

This week, dozens of stories of 9 year old brides in Yemen hit the papers.  In fact, stories of the sexual abuses of Islam fill the papers in Western Europe and America.  Sex sells papers and there is nothing that the same ethnic group that owns both Hollywood and America’s newspapers loves more than sex and that’s money.  Are we being unfair, perhaps even bigoted?  Yes, perhaps we might be with some exceptions.  One of these is that the other group constantly attacked is Christians.  Hardly a day goes by without the poor old German pope’s photo next to a headline describing child rape.

Do we see those same headlines in the same papers as stories about Israeli organ theft rings?  Oh, you mean you don’t know that Israel has a huge industry tied to the theft and trade of human organs?  Perhaps you might think this was an urban legend, you might think that, had you ever seen it reported.

Has anyone ever seen a news story about Jewish law and how it applies to pedophiles?  Nothing?  Curious.  One of the few to speak up is Reverend Ted Pike.  Here is some of what he has to say:

This year, top Israeli Rabbi Moti Elon was indicted by police for sex crimes against minors. “Far from being the rabbi of an obscure Hasidic sect, the charismatic Elon is a high-profile leader, educator and media personality, representing the more mainstream religious Zionists and former head of the renowned HaKotel (Western Wall) Yeshiva. He comes from a family of high achievers in law, politics and academia that has drawn comparisons with the Kennedy clan.”

In 2006, Elon was restricted by an organization of rabbis in his contact with students, after confessing to sexual relationships with male students. Yet he continued to act as the president of a Talmudic academy in Jerusalem and did not fully honor the agreement. One Ha’aretz commentary says Elon “managed to turn himself into almost a kind of saint” –a fate certainly to be envied by American religious figures turned pedophiles.

Dr. Aviad Hacohen, dean of the Sha’arei Mishpat College, in 2007 reported that “95% of sexual offenses in Jerusalem were performed by the religious and haredi.” “Several years ago, I began looking into the issue on a data-based level,” said Hacohen. “It turned out that the law enforcement authorities, both the police and the prosecutor’s office, were aware of the data but refused to expose it based on sectorial affiliation in order to avoid branding a certain group in the population…”

Since the following article was written in 2006, cases of Jewish leadership figures in Orthodox and Ultra-Orthodox Judaism being involved in homosexuality or pedophilia scandals continue to mount not only in Israel, but in New York, where Ultra-Orthodox are strongest. The reason is simple: some of the very greatest rabbis who wrote the Talmud were pedophiles.

So, after a busy day reading the news, 9 year old brides in Yemen, women being stoned in Iran or the unending perfidies of the Catholic Church with its list of priest rape victims at 2 million and counting, reported much as though it were a sign counting “burgers sold” at a fast food restaurant, I find nothing in the “news” about such problems in the Jewish community, even though, as we read above, the scandals are real, pervasive and very noteworthy.  I would think the arrest of Israel’s top Rabbi for sex crimes would be reported.

It wasn’t.

We are told daily, nearly hourly, the the Koran supports sex crimes and is unique among religious works for its “impurity.”  News networks in America actually encourage Koran burning, networks owned by Israeli’s we admit, but American in some ways, at least some of the personnel are American citizens, still, at least.  So, is there a problem in the Talmud that is being covered up, a problem that has driven the media to continually attack Islam while failing to look closer to home?  Let’s take a look:

R. Joseph said: Come and hear! A maiden aged three years and a day may be acquired in marriage by coition and if her deceased husband’s brother cohabits with her, she becomes his. (Sanh. 55b)

A girl who is three years of age and one day may be betrothed by cohabitation. . . .(Yeb. 57b)

A maiden aged three years and a day may be acquired in marriage by coition, and if her deceased husband’s brother cohabited with her she becomes his. (Sanh. 69a, 69b, also discussed in Yeb. 60b)

It was taught: R. Simeon b. Yohai stated: A proselyte who is under the age of three years and one day is permitted to marry a priest, for it is said, But all the women children that have not known man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves, and Phineas (who was priest, the footnote says) surely was with them. (Yeb. 60b)

[The Talmud says such three year and a day old girls are] . . . fit for cohabitation. . . But all women children, that have not known man by lying with him, it must be concluded that Scripture speaks of one who is fit for cohabitation. (Footnote to Yeb. 60b)

Where, in our news, do we read that a 9 year old girl would be considered an “old maid” in the Talmud?  Have we proven bias and bigotry?  When is the last time Jon Stewart talked about sex with three year olds?  His audience would love hearing about it and I am sure he has some good “one liners” he could use.  Can you see his smirk as he describes the physiological aspects alone?  You are saying it would be in bad taste, something he would never do.  Have you really seen his show?

Let’s imagine Jon Stewart, “How about those rabbi’s, can’t you just picture it?  A 3 year old?  Like King Kong with a yamaka putting a move on Barbie.”

How about Howard Stern?  He has hour after hour attacking the sexual ills of Islam.  Can you imagine how popular he will be when he starts pulling in callers screaming about the Talmud and sex with three year olds or the sex crimes of the rabbis, even higher by percentage than priests.

Imagine where Howard Stern would go with this.  I’d rather not.  “What did the rabbi say to the kindergartener?”

Is an Islamophobe a bigot?  Is a Jew who rants about the sins of sex and Islam not only a bigot but a hypocrite as well?  Am I going to be fired for saying this?

It isn’t just that members of the press, our congress and 95% of our military are corrupt, moderate to severe, along with being functionally delusional.  They believe everyone else is even dumber.  When 300 billion goes missing in Iraq, they don’t think we know who got it and that they all got a piece of the action?  How could this much money disappear, news stories covering it, GAO accounting docs proving it but nobody notices that there are no hearings, no grand jury, no indictments.

The new rule in Washington, “if you steal it, you keep it.”

Years ago, congress was attacked for passing the Patriot Acts, laws filled with unconstitutional provisions, some already overturned even by our Hitleresque Supreme Court.  Here we sit, a new broom in the White House, freedoms restored, or are they?  Government police from unspecified agencies whose powers and mandates are clearly outside the scope of any law, can arrest and detain anyone and do, not only disregarding color, race or ethnicity but guilt or innocence also.  Anyone can be arrested, detained, shipped anywhere in the world, tortured, raped, murdered.  It is done every day.

Ask the press.  You say they don’t care?

Remember when we learned that Stan McChrystal and Dick Cheney were running death squads under something called the JSOC?  Now, years later, we find that our death squads are still out there, some official, some simply making it up as they go along.  If you want to throw a hand grenade under a school bus, go ahead.  If you want to open fire on civilians from your helicopter, simply mouth a few military sounding phrases, hit the button and sent a few hundred pounds of depleted uranium into a residential neighborhood.

Then again, you can fly into Pakistan and kill a few of their troops at a border checkpoint like was done last week, seemingly on a whim. Who needs Pakistan anyway?  Isn’t Peru still with us, part of the remains of the old Bush/Cheney coalition of the willing, the blackmailed, the bought and paid for?

Now no more gasoline for trucking the opium crop to the heroin processing facilities south of Kandahar or to the airfields in Balochistan for shipment to Western Europe or North America.  Ask the press about this?  Oh, you are saying they know, have written stories about this but were told they won’t be “embedded” anymore unless they tone down the “self righteousness.”

Remember the torture controversy?  How about this one, did you know that 95% of the “terrorists” arrested during the Bush administration were found “innocent?” How about Pat Tillman, the former football player who joined the Army but became disenchanted with what he was seeing in Afghanistan.  The press said nothing when he died a “war hero.”  Then he suddenly became a victim of an innocent and childish accident, not at all dissimilar to the accidents the Kennedy brothers suffered back in the 1960s.

The press is still buying the “accident’ story even though the closely grouped head shots that killed Tillman were a “one in 10 billion” accident.

Before the Army is done, Tillman will have shot himself in the head 4 times and then, as usual, disposed of the weapon.  You don’t want to know how many accidents like this the Army has.  You don’t have to worry, you’ll never find out about it anyway.

The press is still falling all over themselves for eventually figuring out that Tillman wasn’t killed by the Taliban.  All they had to do was read the coroners report, you know the one, it said “murder” on it.

What is the news?  Anymore, we might as well get press releases sent directly to our I-Phones and cut out the jokers in the middle.  Can you imagine, millions of Americans have Islam explained to them by a former Mossad public relations officer named Wolf Blitzer. (Jerusalem Press/CNN)

I wouldn’t trust Blitzer doing a weather report, certainly not sports scores.

Remember a week ago, Benjamin Netanyahu, former furniture salesman now running Israel, the “American hating” extremist, demanded that we release spy Jonathan Pollard?

Remember that Congressman Barney Frank immediately ran to his side?

The press reports that Pollard was jailed for life because he “gave Israel information on PLO locations, information America failed to share.”

Not one word of this is true.  OK, one word, there is a person named Jonathan Pollard.  Thus far, this is the only thing the press reported properly.

Pollard never gave anyone anything, he sold it.  Nothing went TO Israel, Pollard and the State of Israel were spying FOR the Soviet Union AGAINST the United States.

The information was:  (this has been confirmed)

  • The identities of all CIA agents and the full NOC list, agents of “non official cover” (A movie was made about this, Tom Cruise, Mission Impossible)

  • Full NATO defense plans in case of Soviet Attack

  • Full information including strategic vulnerability assessments on what would be needed to defeat the United States in a nuclear war

  • Design specifics on all American nuclear weapons and delivery systems

  • America’s military and diplomatic codes

This information was sold by Pollard to controllers in Israel who then sold it to the Soviet Union.  We have learned that because of this information a couple of things happened:

  • The Soviet Union came close to a nuclear “first strike” on the United States

  • Over 100 CIA agents were executed after extensive torture

  • Over 1500 “intelligence assets” were rounded up, tortured and interrogated, then killed behind the Iron Curtain

  • America lost all ability to use intelligence to defend itself from the Soviet Union

  • America’s strategic capabilities were diminished by over 50%, with many ‘capabilities’ totally unviable

  • 15 years of weapons research was lost

  • Several weapons systems were totally compromised including our stealth aircraft and nuclear submarines

However, when Barney Frank and his furniture salesman buddy, the one who continually brags about how stupid Americans are and how he can get them to do anything he wants, publicly demanded this monster, Pollard, be set free, the press was silent.  The furniture salesman was right, about the press anyway, he can get them to do anything he wants.

Netanyahu wasn’t serious about Pollard, he simply brings it up, from time to time, when he has a need to humiliate the United States, reminding them how naive and gullible they are as a people and how corrupt their military and government are.

There are no worries about the press.  In fact, even though military and intelligence sources have leaked, for years, how serious the Pollard disaster really was for America, the press loves telling the same old Israeli yarn, the poor country of holocaust victims trying to protect themselves from uncaring America, their “bestest friend” and ally that they have to keep on a “short leash.”

Can we think of something else the press has overlooked?  Back in 2007, the American economy imploded.  Prior to that, America ran up trillions of dollars of secret debt.  We call it secret because no news ever reported it or its consequences.  Debt is the clearest indicator of economic health.  The levels of debt during the Bush years, a president who took office with a budget surplus, reached beyond epidemic proportions yet nothing was ever reported, not in such a way as to make the public aware the nation was going bankrupt.

In 2007, America hit full default, totally broke, dead, gone, bankrupt.  Savings disappeared, retirement systems collapsed, markets plummeted and “blue chip” stocks became worthless.  How did the news respond?  They claimed that a small non-profit called ACORN, a group that worked registering voters, had caused the collapse.  Proving this, we were told, a Republican party operative trained at an Israeli intelligence school, had “debunked” the entire crisis.

ACORN did it.  According to America’s right wing, fronting for the pan-Israeli banking cartel, a few dozen $30,000 dollar home loans managed to run up $3,000,000,000,000 in debt.  Maybe it was extra fees or ‘handling charges?’

Then we learned that none of this happened and that trillions of dollars were stolen by a series of “banks” tied to the Rothschilds, run by Israeli Americans and long involved in massive criminal fraud in full collusion with the Bush administration, coordinating wars, defense fraud, bilking the economy and suspending constitutional rights, in a concerted effort, Bush, Cheney, Israel, the Rothschilds and their creature, the Federal Reserve System, permanently sinking America in a “Pearl Harbor” that made 9/11 tame in comparison.

So, where are these people, the “coalition of corruption,” the “banksters” and the corrupt politicians?  How many are in jail?  Thousands?  Bernie Madoff only?

What did the American press have to say?  Anything?  A story here, one there.

Gideon Levy: A Nobel Peace Prize laureate in prison

If the court indeed deports Mairead Corrigan-Maguire we’ll know that our court system is also tainted to the teeth

October 3, 2010

The photograph was recently distributed by the IDF’s propagandists: Mairead Corrigan-Maguire is seen being taken off the abducted ship Rachel Corrie at Ashdod port, as a soldier from the world’s most moral army holds out his hand to help the honorable woman disembark. It was not long after the IDF’s violent takeover of the Mavi Marmara, and Israeli propagandists were now hastening to peddle their cheap merchandise, showing how Israel treats “real” peace activists, as opposed to the Turkish “terrorists” on the earlier vessel.

Only four months have passed since the earlier event, and the very same lady has now spent a weekend in the deportees’ cell at Ben-Gurion Airport. While we were having another warm, pleasant weekend, the Nobel Peace Prize laureate sat in an Israeli jail and nobody seemed to care. We were not ashamed, we were not outraged, we did not make a sound. It was a spectacle that could only have taken place in Israel, North Korea, Burma (Myanmar ) and Iran – the state imprisoning and deporting a winner of the Nobel Peace Prize – and raised no more than a yawn here.

One court has already upheld the deportation, in a characteristically automatic action, and the Supreme Court will debate it today.

The new Israel is once again portrayed as an indrawn, detestable state, with a branch of the thought police at Ben-Gurion Airport. World-renowned intellectuals such as Noam Chomsky and Norman Finkelstein, Spain’s most famous clown Ivan Prado and now Mairead Corrigan-Maguire, are deported from it shamefacedly only because they dared to visit the country. And all this is backed by pathological public indifference.

The Irish Corrigan-Maguire is the victim of state terror. A former secretary at the Guinness Brewery in Belfast, she had three nephews, all children at the time, who were killed during a British targeted assassination in Northern Ireland. Their mother, her sister, who committed suicide some time later, was also badly injured in the attack. Corrigan Maguire eventually married her sister’s widower and adopted his children. The frightful family tragedy turned her into a peace activist, and she began to hoist the flag of non-violent resistance. For this she won the Nobel Peace Prize for 1976 (awarded retroactively the following year ).

In recent years, Corrigan-Maguire has tried to hoist this flag in Israel, which knows a lot about state terror, assassinations and killing passersby, yet is now brutally closing its gates in her face.

Corrigan-Maguire demonstrated in Bil’in a few months ago and took part in two flotillas to Gaza. This is her sin. Israel is also claiming Corrigan-Maguire “ran wild” while officials tried forcibly to put her on an airplane. It is difficult to imagine this gentle woman running wild. She herself says she only tried to resist passively in order to complete the petition procedure granted her by law.

Israel, like North Korea, must have something to hide about its occupation regime and this is why it prevents people of conscience from entering and report about it to the world. Israel, like North Korea, is afraid of anyone who tries to protest against it or criticize its regime. No terrorists will enter here, but neither will anyone who opposes terror yet dares to criticize the occupation. For safety’s sake,let’s call them “terrorists” too, as we falsely called the Turkish activists. It will make it easier for us to deal with them. Yes, we prefer terror, because we know well how to handle it.

All those who are preaching sanctimoniously to the Palestinians to practice non-violent resistance had better take a look at the deportees’ prison in Ben- Gurion Airport. This is how non-violent protesters will be treated. A peace activist is being held there, a woman of conscience who was allowed to receive her personal effects over the weekend only after the invention of the district court in Petah Tikva. She awaits the ruling of our beacon of justice, the Supreme Court, which, one may guess, will also not dare to object to the deportation.

If the court indeed upholds the disgraceful act today, in response to the Adalah organization’s petition, then we’ll know not only what we’ve become – that this is how we treat those who advocate non-violence – but that our court system is also a collaborator in the treachery and is tainted to the teeth.

A Nobel Prize laureate sits in Israeli detention, a few days after Israel hijacked another Gaza-bound aid boat, whose passengers included a Jewish Holocaust survivor, an Israeli father who lost a child to terror, and an air force pilot-turned-conscientious objector. It hijacked the boat to prevent them from reaching their destination and reminding the world of the blockade. This is the portrait of Israel today.




Dear Friends,


The 5 items below are but a few from many that I decided not to send.  A few of you have complained about the load that I have lately been distributing.  So I will try to do less, at least for the time being, unless events will demand more information.


The first item is a press release about a book that I have not yet read but definitely will.  The subject is one that is close to the hearts of every New Profiler, and should be of interest to all.  Please do check out Professor Barry’s website.  The link to it is at the bottom of the Press Release.


Items 2 and 3 are brief reports about incidents that occurred, recently (item 2) and yesterday (item 3).  Item 2 is about a 13 year old Palestinian youngster thrown in jail and then placed under house arrest (please read the article for the details), the other about a Palestinian man who was killed while evidently trying to get to work or to look for a job in Israel.  One can find the information in the Israeli media, but not with the same details as when the Ma’an News Agency or other Palestinian sources publish such unhappy events.


Item 4  is a report about Palestinian refugees, but centers on a single person.  I comment on it a bit more at the item itself.


As for item 5, I deliberated long and hard with myself about whether or not to distribute it.  As important as the opinion is, and as well-known and important as the writer is, the message is debatable.  University of Illinois Law Professor Francis A. Boyle argues that since Israel will not longer exist in 20 years, the Palestinians should sign nothing, no  peace agreements.  Israel will disappear of itself, and then they will have the whole.


Even if Professor Boyle is right, I believe that his recommendation inadvertently ask for more conflict, killing, and war.  One has only to see item 4 to realize that his recommendation will lead to more uses of force and violence by both sides.  Israel will not go down lightly, and Palestinians will not give up easily.  If the Palestinians were to sit back now and merely wait for Israel to disappear, it would not.  It would extend itself as far as its leaders could.  Were the United States and the EU to cease their support of Israel, then Israel would not be able to use violence for long—at least not with the power that it has had.  But until we see that happening, then I think that the safest course is for all of us—all of us who want justice and peace—to continue to work as hard as possible to bring these into being.


All the best,









Amidst all of the war news that saturates our lives, Kathleen Barry’s new book answers the question “Is war inevitable?”  with an empathic “No!”  And she offers a way out.  Revealing how, in demilitarized states, violence against women persists at high levels, Barry, a sociologist, turns to men and shows how they are made expendable for war.  She then asks what is required for men to remake themselves, to disengage from “core masculinity,”  the socialized expectation of men as protections and aggressors.


The author shows how the military’s goal to drum empathy out of new recruits invokes harm in soldiers who are trained to become remorseless killers.  This book is unique—with its exposé of how blinding macho at home is intensively trained by state militaries  and resistance militias alike for war.


Finding that state demilitarization does not decrease violence against women, Barry proposes a program for global peace-making that is based on remaking the masculinity that drives men to combat. Of this book, Robin Morgan says “With the courageous vision, scrupulous scholarship, and heartfelt writing that has illumined her books on female sexual slavery, Kathleen Barry here focuses her laser-like intelligence on violence, militarism, and core masculinity. Unmaking War, Remaking Men makes the connections that could save us all. Ignore this book at your peril.”


As if presaging the Wikileaks exposés of random killing by US soldiers in Iraq, Barry documents preventive killing as a daily occurrence in combat zones.  She shows it as a military strategy to make enemies and thereby perpetuate war that feeds military industries.  This book, published October, 2010, challenges the U.S. preeminence in the world by exposing the other side of empathy – remorseless, psychopathic leadership  in aggressor states, resistance forces and terrorist movements from George W. Bush to Ariel Sharon to Osama bin Laden. 


Barry differentiates preemptive war from the crimes against humanity of preventive war (Iraq, Afghanistan, possibly Iran, Lebanon in 2006). She shows how the U.S. and Israel perpetuate ongoing war in their refusal to acknowledge Hizbullah and Hamas as resistance forces struggling against occupation and instead treat them only as terrorists. 


Barry’s plausible plan to stop ongoing war includes a radically altered United Nations and an end to the expendability of men for war. War resistors are her model of men who engage their empathy and refuse the criminality expected of them by the military and the macho required of them by society. 


About the Author:  Kathleen Barry, Professor Emerita, sociologist and feminist activist is the author of five books.   Her first book, Female Sexual Slavery, launched an international movement against trafficking in human beings.

2. “The minister pledged to support the family in any way possible, as part of the ministry’s ongoing efforts to secure the release of the 280 children under the age of 18 currently in Israeli prisons. Since 2000, Quraqe said, 8,000 minors were detained by Israeli forces. “ [below, item 2]


Imagine what it is like to be not only a Palestinian youngster but a Palestinian mother.  Some years ago a friend asked a 5 year old Palestinian what he wanted to be when he grew up.  His response, “first I will go to kindergarten, then to school, then to high school, then to prison.”  He was not being facetious.  He was speaking from the reality in which he was growing up.  For mothers raising children, especially boys, the prospect that some day or night their sons might suddently be whisked off by soldiers or border police to prison must be terrifying.  It would be for me.  How about for you?

  Minister pledges support to boy under Israeli house arrest

Published Friday 01/10/2010 (updated) 02/10/2010 15:14



HEBRON (Ma’an) — Minister of Prisoners Affairs Issa Qaraqe was received on Friday by the family of a 13-year-old Hebron boy on Friday, days after the child’s release from Israeli prison.


Karem Khaled Da’na, from the Wad Al-Bustan neighborhood in the West Bank city of Hebron, was taken from his family home by Israeli forces on 22 September, who said he had thrown stones at settlers on his way home from school.


According to lawyers and testimony from Karem, he was tortured and kept for six days in Israel’s Ofer detention center, and later released on 3,000 shekels ($824) bail under house arrest for a period of five months without exception including going to school.


“Any state who detains young children is a state that is afraid of the future,” Qaraqe told the family during the visit, accusing Israel of breaking international law and UN charters guaranteeing the rights of children when boys as young as Karem are taken from their parents’ care.

(updated) 03/10/2010 10:08 BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) –


[compare the Ma’an news agency report of the incident to the Jerusalem Post one—how differently it is slanted; moreover, in the JP report the individual killed has no name, as is customary when Israel news agencies write about the killing of Palestinians—for that makes them human—human beings with loved ones mourning their death—parents, children, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins, and perhaps even grandparents.




A Palestinian worker from Hebron was shot and killed by Israeli border guards on Sunday while he attempted to enter East Jerusalem near the village of Al-Isawiya.


The deceased was identified as 38-year-old Izz Ad-Din Al-Kawazba from the town of Sa’ir in Hebron. Al-Kawzaba’s cousin, Salah, told Ma’an that border guards shot the victim at close range, refuting police accounts that the shooting was accidental.


Al-Kawazba said he was 20 meters away from his cousin when he was shot, shortly after two groups of workers climbed over the separation wall in the Zayem-At-Tur area and were chased by an Israeli border guard patrol.


He said he urged his cousin, who was with his brother Hassan, to “hurry because the soldiers were behind us.”


“Suddenly I saw a soldier approaching Izz Ad-Din extending his gun to his body and shooting. I moved backward along with dozens of other workers to check up on Izz Ad-Din. As we got close, we were surrounded by special forces who attacked us violently,” he said.


“We saw them shoving the martyr’s body in a black bag dragging it more than 50 meters. More than 100 workers were gathered and were sent to Al-Eizariya. The victim’s brother Hassan was detained,” he added.


Spokesman for Israel’s National Police Mickey Rosenfeld said Al-Kawazba was injured when a “shot was fired apparently accidentally” by a border guard officer after he “attempted to grab one of the border police’s gun.”


Al-Kawazba was transferred to the Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital where he later died of his wounds, Rosenfeld said, adding that an investigation “is being carried out in order to understand what took place at the scene.”


Rosenfeld said the shooting followed the detention of “15 illegal workers [who] crossed the security barrier near French Hill,” after which a chase ensued.


The death comes over a week after an Israeli settler guard shot and killed two Palestinians in the flashpoint neighborhood of Silwan in East Jerusalem, sparking days of clashes.


(This article was UPDATED to include an account of the shooting from the victim’s cousin, Salah Al-Kawazba.)

“’God had promised us that we will return to our homes. But we will never get Palestine without jihad.’”  [Final statement below might very well indicate what is likely to occur if Palestinians and Palestinian refugees ever give up hope of ending the occupation since 1948 by peaceful means. Dorothy]


Remembering the right of return


Hugh Mcleod



Ain al-Hilweh is the largest, most heavily armed and most violent Palestine refugee camp in Lebanon. Home to around 75,000 Palestinian refugees and their descendants, Ain al-Hilweh, or Beautiful Eyes, was built on the site of a former British World War II army base just outside the southern port city of Sidon 


On Sharia Bustan Yahoudi – Jewish Park Street, named after the Jews who used to live around Sidon – the irony of their address is only one among a litany of indignities suffered by the refugees. Unable to gain citizenship, they live in limbo. The government has passed a law allowing them to claim free work permits for employment in the private sector, but they remain barred from over 70 professional jobs


Ain al-Hilweh today is a two square kilometre pressure cooker of tedium and despair, punctuated by moments of terror. The Fatah faction has long held sway in the camp, including manning the security checkpoints around it, but is being challenged by the rising power of Islamic groups


Fatah gunmen man checkpoints at the entrance to Ain al-Hilweh, but large swaths of the camp are now under the control of Islamist groups who rival Fatah for leadership of the Palestinian refugees in Lebanon


Though the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO), of which Fatah is the dominant faction, has long held sway over most of the 12 Palestinian camps in Lebanon its relative weakness in Nahr al-Bared allowed Fatah al-Islam to gain a foothold. During its 29 year occupation of Lebanon, which ended in 2005, the Syrian army had sought to weaken the PLO because of its involvement in the Lebanese civil war


Sheikh Abu Sharif says his Islamist group Ozbat Ansar is the largest faction in Ain al-Hilweh. The Sunni group has been involved in a number of firefights with its secular rival Fatah


For most Palestinians, the right to return home of the up to six million refugees who can trace origins back to the exodus from Palestine that followed the creation of Israel in 1948, is an absolute


“I was born here in a small tent in 1958,” says Abu Ahmad Fadel Taha, the leader of Hamas in Ain al-Hilweh. “I have lived all my life here with my father, who is now 94, and my eight children. We live with hardship every day and we live the dream of return every day”


“No-one can negotiate on our right to return to Palestine. There is only one country called Palestine and we will never return there except by resistance to Israel,” says Abu Yousef, a fighter with the Palestinian faction Ansar Allah, as a group of about 100 protesters wave flags and guns behind him

Israel may be urging Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president, to continue faltering peace talks despite refusing to renew a freeze on illegal settlement building, but in the tinderbox Ain al-Hilweh Palestinian refugee camp in Lebanon life is defined by an issue neither side has ever publically expressed any willingness to compromise over: The right of Palestinian refugees to return home.


“No-one can negotiate on our right to return to Palestine. There is only one country called Palestine and we will never return there except by resistance to Israel,” says Abu Yousef, a fighter with the Palestinian faction Ansar Allah.


Absolute right or demographic danger


The right of return polarises the seemingly intractable conflict between the Palestinians and Israelis like no other issue.


For most Palestinians the right of return for the up to six million refugees who are ancestors of those who made the exodus from Palestine that followed the creation of Israel in 1948 is an absolute.


For Israeli officials – whose historians dispute the figure of six million and also the reason for the mass exodus – the issue is existential: The sheer number of Palestinian refugees who can claim a right to return to their pre-1948 homes are a demographic danger to the world’s only Jewish state.


In a speech to former US President Bush’s Annapolis peace conference in 2007, Abbas pledged to begin “deep negotiations” with Ehud Olmert, the then Israeli prime minister, on final status issues, including the question of refugees “in all its political, humanitarian, individual and common aspects, consistent with Resolution 194”.


That UN General Assembly Resolution and Article 13 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights asserts the refugees’ unconditional right of return to live at peace in their old homes or to receive compensation for their losses. The Annapolis talks ended in failure.


The efforts of Barack Obama, the US president, to bring about a peace deal within a year have focused on resolutions pegged to the withdrawal of Israeli troops from Palestinian land occupied during the 1967 war.


‘Dream of return’


But the issue of the refugees’ return has not been forgotten in the dusty, dangerous cinderblock camp of Ain al-Hilweh, on the outskirts of Lebanon’s southern port city of Sidon.


“I was born here in a small tent in 1958,” says Abu Ahmad Fadel Taha, the leader of Hamas in Ain al-Hilweh. “I have lived all my life here with my father, who is now in his 90s, and my eight children. We live with hardship every day and we live the dream of return every day.”


From his office in the heart of the camp, Fadel Taha’s staff broadcast tapes of Al-Aqsa and Al-Resalah TV channels on free satellite wavelengths to households in the camp. The message is often uncompromising.


“Israel wants the Palestinians to admit Palestine is the home of the Jews. It wants us to give up on the right of return,” says Fadel Taha.


“Palestine is for us and for our grandchildren and can only be liberated by resistance. Oslo and Madrid [peace conferences] brought only shame. We don’t believe in negotiations.”


Even among Abbas’ own Fatah movement in Ain al-Hilweh, support for peace talks has been muted.


“We have been used to the total support of the Israelis by the US, but now we have no other way but to be with the talks,” says Mounir Maqdah, a senior member of the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) in Lebanon, of which Fatah is the dominant faction.


Living in limbo


Besides their dream of return, Palestinians in Lebanon face a unique array of hardships.


Unable to gain citizenship because of fears such a move would upset Lebanon’s delicate sectarian power sharing system, the country’s 400,000 Palestinian refugees live in a double limbo: Refusing resettlement in their host country but demanding better rights, such as the right to work in over 70 professional jobs from which they remain barred, despite a parliamentary decision in August to allow Palestinians work permits.


According to UNRWA, the UN’s Palestinian relief organisation, Lebanon has the highest percentage of Palestinian refugees living in abject poverty, and the worst of that is felt inside the 12 official refugee camps.


Under a 1969 Arab agreement, Lebanese authorities have no right of access inside the camps, with Palestinians running an autonomous security system.


But while many fear a repeat of the brutal attacks on the camps that were carried out by Israel and allied Lebanese groups during the 1975-1990 civil war, for camp residents their arms more significantly signal their refusal to relinquish their refugee status.


“We maintain our weapons as a guarantee of our right of return to our homeland,” says Sheikh Maher Oweid, the commander of the Ansar Allah faction in Ain al-Hilweh.


Factional fighting


Too often though, the weapons of rival factions have been turned on each other with regular deadly gun battles over the past few years between Islamist groups, such as Ozbat Ansar, which claim to be the largest faction in the camp, and its secular rivals, such as Fatah.


The destruction in the summer of 2007 of the Nahr al-Bared refugee camp in a three-month battle between the Lebanese army and Islamists, many of them foreigners who had holed up in the camp, further spiked tensions between the Islamists and secularists inside Ain al-Hilweh.


“Fatah have shot on us many times but our religion tells us we must protect our Palestinian civilians here in the camp,” says Sheikh Abu Sharif, a spokesman for Ozbat Ansar.


Members of Ozbat Ansar define themselves as global jihadis fighting Israeli and American occupation and for the establishment of Islamic rule. They criticise both Hamas and Hezbollah, the Lebanese Shia movement, for their “narrow agenda” of only seeking an end to the Israeli occupation of Palestine and a disputed corner of south-east Lebanon.


“We have succeeded in establishing a military wing inside occupied Palestine,” says Abu Sharif, vowing to fight against any two state solution that might arise from peace talks.


“God had promised us that we will return to our homes. But we will never get Palestine without jihad.”

The Impending Collapse Of Israel In Palestine  


By Francis A. Boyle 


01 October, 2010 November 15, 1988 the Palestine National Council (P.N.C.) meeting in Algiers proclaimed the Palestinian Declaration of Independence that created the independent state of Palestine. Today the State of Palestine is bilaterally recognized de jure by about 130 states. Palestine has de facto diplomatic recognition from most of Europe. It was only massive political pressure applied by the U.S. government that prevented European states from according to Palestine de jure diplomatic recognition.



Palestine is a member state of the League of Arab States and of the Islamic Conference Organization. When the International Court of Justice in The Hague—the so-called World Court of the United Nations System—conducted its legal proceedings on Israel’s apartheid wall on the West Bank, the World Court invited the State of Palestine to participate in the proceedings. In other words, the International Court of Justice recognized the State of Palestine.


Palestine has Observer State Status with the United Nations Organization, and basically all the rights of a U.N. Member State except the right to vote. Effectively, Palestine has de facto U.N. Membership. The only thing keeping Palestine from de jure U.N. Membership is the implicit threat of a veto at the U.N. Security Council by the United States, which is clearly illegal. Someday Palestine shall be a full-fledged U.N. Member State.


From a world-order perspective, the 1988 Palestinian Declaration of Independence created a remarkable opportunity for peace with Israel because therein the P.N.C. explicitly accepted the U.N. General Assembly’s Partition Resolution 181(II) of 1947 that called for the creation of a Jewish state and an Arab state in the Mandate for Palestine, together with an international trusteeship for the City of Jerusalem, in order to resolve their basic conflict:


Despite the historical injustice inflicted on the Palestinian Arab people resulting in their dispersion and depriving them of their right to self-determination following upon U.N. General Assembly Resolution 181 (1947), which partitioned Palestine into two states, one Arab, one Jewish, yet it is this Resolution that still provides those conditions of international legitimacy that ensure the right of the Palestinian Arab people to sovereignty and national independence.


The significance of the P.N.C.’s acceptance of the Partition Resolution in the Palestinian Declaration of Independence itself could not be over-emphasized. Prior thereto, from the perspective of the Palestinian People the Partition Resolution had been deemed to be a criminal act that was perpetrated upon them by the United Nations Organization in gross violation of their fundamental right to self-determination as recognized by the United Nations Charter and general principles of public international law. The acceptance of the Partition Resolution in their actual Declaration of Independence signaled the genuine desire by the Palestinian People to transcend the past century of bitter conflict with the Jewish People living illegally in their midst in order to reach an historic accommodation with them on the basis of a two-state solution.


The very fact that this acceptance of Partition Resolution 181 was set forth in their Declaration of Independence indicated the degree of sincerity with which the Palestinian People accepted Israel. The Declaration of Independence was the foundational document for the State of Palestine. It was intended to be determinative, definitive, and irreversible. As the P.N.C. well knew at the time, their Declaration of Independence was not something that could be amended or bargained away.


Nonetheless, the Palestinians have now fruitlessly spent the past twenty-two years trying to negotiate in good faith with Israel over the two-state solution set forth in Resolution 181. They have gotten absolutely nowhere. Israel has never demonstrated one iota of good faith when it came to negotiating a comprehensive Middle Peace settlement with the Palestinians on the basis of a two-state solution. Even the 1993 Oslo Agreement was nothing more than an Israeli-drafted interim Bantustan arrangement for five years that was rejected in Washington, D.C. by the Palestinian Delegation to the Middle East Peace Negotiations for that precise reason.


Both Israel and the United States now want to make the Oslo Bantustan permanent and, incidental thereto, destroy the right of the Palestinian refugees to return to their homes as required by U.N. General Assembly Resolution 194 (III) of 1948 and general principles of public international law.


In this regard, shortly before he died on September 24, 2007, I called up the former Head of the Palestinian Delegation to the Middle East Peace Negotiations, Dr. Haidar Abdul Shaffi at his home in Gaza in order to review the entire situation with him. According to Dr. Haidar: “The Zionists have not changed their objectives since the Basel Conference of 1897!” In other words, the Zionists want a “Greater” Israel on all of the Mandate for Palestine together with as much ethnic cleansing of Palestinians out of Palestine that the Zionists believe they can get away with internationally.


After twenty-two years of getting nowhere but further screwed to Israel’s apartheid wall on the West Bank and strangulated in Gaza, it is now time for the Palestinians to adopt a new strategy, which I most respectfully recommend here for them to consider: Sign nothing and let Israel collapse! Recently it was reported that the United States’ own Central Intelligence Agency predicted the collapse of Israel within twenty years. My most respectful advice to the Palestinians is to let Israel so collapse!


For the Palestinians to sign any type of comprehensive peace treaty with Israel would only shore up, consolidate, and guarantee the existence of Zionism and Zionists in Palestine forever. Why would the Palestinians want to do that? Without approval by the Palestinians in writing, Zionism and Israel in Palestine will collapse.


So the Palestinians must not sign any Middle East Peace Treaty with Israel, but rather must keep the pressure on Israel for the collapse of Zionism over the next two decades as predicted by the Central Intelligence Agency. The correct historical analogue here is not apartheid South Africa, but instead the genocidal Yugoslavia that collapsed as a State, lost its U.N. Membership, and no longer exists as a State for that very reason.


All the demographic forces are in favor of the Palestinians and against the Zionists. The United States government is tired of its blank-check support for Israel because this policy seriously undermines and conflicts with America’s imperial objective to obtain the oil and gas lying beneath Arab and Muslim states by hook or by crook. Israel is ridden with and paralyzed by so many internal contradictions and conflicts that they are too numerous to list here.


Indeed, from the very moment of its inception as a direct result of the Zionists’ genocidal al Nakba in 1948, Israel has been the proverbial failed state, and still is so today. Israel would have never come into existence without the support of Western colonial imperial powers throughout the twentieth century. And the same is true today. Without the political, economic, diplomatic, and military support provided primarily by the United States, and to a lesser extent by Britain, France, and Germany, Israel would immediately collapse. The international Campaign for Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (B.D.S.) against Israel is quickly whittling away Israel’s domestic support in those countries. Israel’s own serial barbarous atrocities perpetrated against the Palestinians and the Lebanese have revealed the true face of Zionism for the entire world to see: genocide.


In fact, Israel has never been a State but just an Army masquerading as a State — a Potemkin Village of a State. Israel is the archetypal Great Band of Robbers described by St. Augustine in Book 4, Chapter 4 of The City of God:


Kingdoms without justice are similar to robber barons. And so if justice is left out, what are kingdoms except great robber bands? For what are robber bands except little kingdoms? The band also is a group of men governed by the orders of a leader, bound by social compact, and its booty is divided according to a law agreed upon. If by repeatedly adding desperate men this plague grows to the point where it holds territory and establishes a fixed seat, seizes cites and subdues peoples, then it more conspicuously assumes the name of kingdom, and this name is now openly granted to it, not for any subtraction of cupidity, but by addition of impunity….


All of these political, economic, military, diplomatic, sociological, psychological, and demographic forces are working in favor of the Palestinians and against Israel and the Zionists in Palestine. It will take a few more years for these historical forces to predominate and then to prevail. But the proverbial handwriting is on the wall for the Zionist Enterprise in Palestine for the entire world to see, including and especially the C.I.A. Even large numbers of Zionists living in Israel have already prepared their parachutes, and their exit plans, and their landing zones to go elsewhere in the world. There is no reason for the Palestinians to give the Zionists a new lease on life in Palestine by signing any sort of peace treaty with Israel.


It is obvious that soon Zionism will enter into Trotsky’s “ashcan” of history along with every other nationalistic “ism” that has plagued humankind during the twentieth century: Nazism, Fascism, Francoism, Phalangism, Stalinism, Maoism, etc. The only thing that could save Zionism in Palestine is for the Palestinians to conclude any type of so-called comprehensive Middle East Peace treaty with Israel. It is for precisely that reason then that the Palestinians must sign nothing and let Israel collapse of its own weight over the next two decades.

Millions of Palestinians have waited in refugee camps since 1948 in order to return to their homes, that is for 62 years.


They can wait a little longer until Israel collapses within 20 years. Otherwise, for the Palestinians to sign a comprehensive peace treaty with Israel means that they will never be able to return to their homes as required by Resolution 194 of 1948. History and demography are on the side of Palestine and the Palestinians against Israel and the Zionists. But the Palestinians must allow history and demography a little bit more time in order to produce the collapse of Israel and Zionism in Palestine. Twenty years is but the blink of an eye in the millennia-long history of the Palestinian People, who are the original indigenous inhabitants of Palestine.


God had no right to steal Palestine from the Palestinians and give Palestine to the Jews to begin with. A fortiori the United Nations had no right to steal Palestine from the Palestinians and give Palestine to the Zionists in 1947.

In the meantime, the Palestinians must keep up the pressure on Israel, Zionism and the Zionists in Palestine.


The Palestinians have a perfect right under international law to resist an illegal, colonial, genocidal, criminal, military occupation regimé of their lands and of their homes and of their People that goes back to 1948 so long as it is done in a manner consistent with the requirements of international humanitarian law. Simultaneously, the Palestinians must continue to build their state from the ground up as they have been doing successfully since the first Intifada began in 1987 with its grassroots Unified Leadership of the Intifada.


Internationally, the Palestinians must continue their diplomatic and political and legal offensive against Israel. Palestine has gained enormous ground since November 15, 1988 when the P.N.C. proclaimed the independent State of Palestine. Palestine will continue to gain more support internationally over the next two decades, including the accelerating B.D.S. campaign that will delegitimize Israel and Zionism all around the world. At the same time, Israel will continue its rapid descent into pariah state status along the lines of the genocidal Yugoslavia that collapsed as a state and no longer exists. Israel will meet the same fate as the genocidal Yugoslavia provided the Palestinians do not sign any type of international peace agreement with Israel.

When Israel collapses, most Zionists will have already left or will soon leave for other states around the world. The Palestinians will then be able to claim all of the historic Mandate for Palestine as their State, including the entire City of Jerusalem as their Capital. Palestine will then be able to invite all of its refugees to return to their homes pursuant to Resolution 194.


Some Jews will remain in Palestine either voluntarily or involuntarily. Palestine and the Palestinians will treat the remaining Jews fairly. Palestine and the Palestinians will not do to the Jews what Israel, Zionism, and the Zionists have done to the Palestinians.


The Palestinians must sign nothing and let Israel collapse!

While many–understandably sick to death of watching as powerful Jewish interests voraciously chew their way into the highest centers of power both in America and throughout the world–are no doubt cheering at the announced departure of Rahm Israel Emmanuel as White House Chief of Staff, there is more reason to look at this latest development with a certain amount of apprehension than relief.

Being immediately installed as Chief of Staff to Barack Obama upon election, Emmanuel (son of an Irgun terrorist and whose only stint in the armed forces was for that of a foreign country–Israel) effectively became the eyes and ears of a hostile foreign power bent upon destroying America by involving her in a series of devastating, bankrupting wars.

As such, his installation in such a sensitive post represents the most effective wiretapping/surveillance operation of a sitting US president in history, with him acting as an informational sponge as it were, sitting literally within inches of the President during every waking moment. All can be rest assured that in this capacity, there wasn’t an executive yawn, cough or clearing of the throat whose details didn’t find their way to Mossad headquarters at the end of each day. The only possible equivalent to the present situation involving Israel being able to know so intimately the personal comings and goings on in the White House was with LBJ via Zionist spy Matilda Krim and then several decades later when a nice Jewish girl named Monica Lewinsky acted as “personal assistant” to William Jefferson Clinton.

So the fact that Israel would be willing to forfeit such an invaluable source of inside information as Emmanuel can only indicate that big plans are afoot, and, as America has learned all too well following more than half a century of an undeniably toxic relationship with Murder, Incorporated, none of these plans can be good.

What makes this latest development all the more ominous is that Emmanuel is not the only VIP within organized Zionist interests leaving. Shortly after Emmanuel’s announcement, the political world was rocked to hear that–literally within days of each other–Emmanuel’s colleagues, namely David Axelrod (Obama’s Chief Political Advisor) and Larry Summers (Chief Economic Advisor) announced they were leaving as well.

The fact that these announcements took place in such close proximity to each other intimates not only coordination amongst all the players in question but as well its sinister twin, collusion. It must also be considered that both Axelrod and Summers, although certainly not in “bird’s-eye-view” positions necessarily as advantageous to Israel as Emmanuel’s, nevertheless were/are important listening posts as well viz-a-viz the internal workings of the Obama White House, and therefore their absence must also represent a great loss for the Jewish state in terms of human intelligence.

Add to all of this Israel’s conspicuous absence at Obama’s speech at the UN General Assembly the 3rd week of September–an unprecedented event in its own right–and the message being conveyed to Obama loud enough that even a deaf man at a Led Zeppelin concert could hear can be summed up thus–

“We, the Jewish people, are turning our backs on you Mr. President and are walking away.”

Now, given the harrowing dealings Obama has had to endure the last 2 years with regards to Israel and her various partisans viz-a-viz the issue of settlements and the ceaseless shrieking for war against Iran, doubtless the President would welcome such a development for the ensuing peace of mind and quiet such “back turning” represents, were it a stand-alone event with no repercussions, that is.

However, as all who have studied this subject know too well, when it comes to Israel, Jewish interests and power politics, there is no such creature as “no repercussions”. A people whose motto is “never forget” and who insist upon always having the last word in any discussion, we can assume that this “cold shoulder” and “silent treatment” being directed towards the Obama presidency represents a statement. Spoken in a particular dialect of gangsterese designed to avoid clarity when clarity represents a liability, what the interested parties responsible for this exodus are aiming at is the subtlety that speaks volumes instantaneously, such as a horse’s head under the sheets or dead fish wrapped in a bullet proof vest.

At best, this “exodus” from the Obama White House indicates that the same Jewish interests who view Obama as ‘their boy’ are planning to open the closet doors kept strategically closed until now and release the well-prepared flood of embarrassing (or possibly incriminating) skeletons before the world body just mere weeks before mid-term Congressional elections.

In the same manner as Bill Clinton was forced to deal with the tsunami of embarrassing media noise concerning his tryst with the aforementioned Israeli asset Monica Lewinsky (done in the interests of pressuring him to bend to Israel’s demands) Obama too may be forced to deal with his own issues as Israel puts the screws to him in trying to get him to cry “uncle” viz-a-viz war with Iran.

At worst however, and we cannot discount this for a minute, given Israel’s proclivity towards violence in all its forms–real or theoretical–what it may all indicate is that the same Jewish interests responsible over the last half century for a myriad of false flag attacks, assassinations and acts of terrorism against the United States may be planning something even more dramatic. First and foremost on the list would be a controlled demolition of the American economy at a time when the land of the free and home of the brave finds itself barely breathing and on financial life support following the mid-September, 2008 financial meltdown that insiders in D.C. and New York know all about yet will not discuss.

Worse than this though my be that another terrorist attack on America or even a presidential assassination may be in the works.

Curious watchers of this modern gangster drama involving Israel will recount that during the waning days of George Bush’s presidency, upon visiting Israel he was promptly met by rabbis closely-associated with ultra-violent elements of the Israeli right who presented him with a list of demands.

The commandments, collectively called ‘Megillat Bush’ were written on a specially-made scroll made to look as if scribed personally by some fire-and-brimstone Old Testament prophet. Typical of the same haughty, pushy, demanding, threatening, obnoxious and condescending tones universally-known to be as much a part of the Jewish state’s character as pasta and tomatoes are to Italian cuisine, the decree had the following to say–

‘To George W. Bush…who comes to Jerusalem, eternal capital of our land, joy of the entire earth…

…If you truly desire peace and wish to be counted in the company of the truly righteous, we call upon you to declare to all the world the following-

‘I George Bush declare that the Land of Israel was bequeathed to the nation of Israel by the Creator of the world. which He gave to His people Israel, the eternal people. Therefore I call upon all the nations to save themselves from certain doom and recognize that this land is the exclusive rightful inheritance of the people of Israel. He who denies this truth endangers all life on earth.’

The proclamation, reminiscent of the same threats of doom and destruction Moses issued when he put the heat on Pharaoh some years back continued with–

‘Or, Heaven forbid, you can choose the second option…to willfully aid in destruction…You certainly know what the God of Israel did to Egypt and to all Israel’s enemies from time immemorial. Do you imagine you can escape from the struggles in Iran, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Egypt, and Lebanon, by offering up the Jews who are slaughtered daily by their enemies? Remember our forefather Abraham, who pursued the world’s four greatest kings in order to redeem his nephew from captivity. We cannot forget the deeds of our patriarchs, whose example guides us through every generation…

…Understand this well–God ordained that the role of the nations of the world is to strengthen the nation of Israel. Therefore it behooves you to declare: “I, George Bush, Commander in Chief of the armies of the United States of America, will instruct all of my troops to protect the Divine rights of the nation of Israel, and remove from her any threat.” Before you is a choice: You can merit eternal life, or be inscribed for eternal disgrace. Your fate and that of all those with you hangs in the balance of the destiny of our land…’

Immediately after Bush was handed this list of demands, a mere few months later in mid-September of 2008, in the span of just two hours $550 billion dollars evaporated from the US money market accounts. According to Congressional testimony provided by Chairman of the Federal Reserve Ben Bernanke and then-Secretary of the Treasury Paulson, had they not stepped in and shut down the money market accounts, the US would have been completely bankrupt by 2 pm that day.

That this was a coordinated financial attack on the US economy (the likely intended result of which was to blame it all on Islamic terrorists–undoubtedly Iran–as a precursor to launching military attacks against that country) is not some wild, speculative conspiracy theory. That a repeat performance of that event is a logistical possibility, given the predominance of Zionist influence within the economic sector of the American economy is not some fringe theory.

However, in the aftermath of financial scandals involving creatures such as Bernie Madoff, Lloyd Blankfein and the rest of the gang, paired with the results of public opinion polls showing that the age-old spectre pairing up Jews, greed and money is again bobbing up and down like a hastily-disposed body in the waters of American thinking, what this indicates is that Zionists interests might not want to “go there”.

Therefore, it is more likely that the same Jewish interests salivating over a new war in the Middle East involving Iran may resort to more desperate measures in getting the big ball rolling, something more along the lines of what took place in Dallas of 1963 to then-President JFK.

That there have been ruminations in this direction is without a doubt. Mainstream stories emanating out of Israel, the U.S. and Europe carry the unmistakable whiff of threats against the life of the President as a result of his stance viz-a-viz the settlements issue and his reluctance to widen U.S. involvement in an already-disastrous war in the region.

In Israel, loud, raucous protests, sometimes right in front of Netanyahu’s residence take place with crowds burning effigies of Obama who is referred to as “the new Pharaoh”. Other stories, quoting high-level Israeli ministers, refer to Obama as “the descendents of slaves” who does not know his place and who needs to be dealt with harshly. Barely a week goes by where Netanyahu is not speaking in apocalyptic terms if America does not get busy soon by getting GI boots on the ground.

The question is–would Israel go so far as to assassinate an American president in order to gain certain political advantages? According to former Mossad agent Victor Ostrovsky, such a question is a no-brainer, as he describes in his book ‘The Other Side of Deception’ how Israel planned to assassinate President George H.W. Bush at the Madrid peace conference in October of 1991 for the purpose of blaming it on Arab extremists–

“Since the Mossad had all the security arrangements in hand, it would not be a problem in bringing the killers as close as they wanted to President Bush and then staging his assassination. In the ensuing confusion, the Mossad people would kill the ‘perpetrators,’ scoring yet another victory for the Mossad. With the assassins dead, it would be difficult to discover where the ‘security breach’ had been, except that several countries involved in the conference, such as Syria, were regarded as countries that assisted terrorists.”

Other hints as to how such an operation might take place are partially given in a story appearing in the New York Times entitled “President Apostate” written by hardcore Israel-firster Edward Luttwak that reads in part–

“As the son of the Muslim father, Senator Obama was born a Muslim under Muslim law as it is universally understood. It makes no difference that, as Senator Obama has written, his father said he renounced his religion. Likewise, under Muslim law based on the Koran his mother’s Christian background is irrelevant. Of course, as most Americans understand it, Senator Obama is not a Muslim. He chose to become a Christian, and indeed has written convincingly to explain how he arrived at his choice and how important his Christian faith is to him. His conversion, however, was a crime in Muslim eyes; it is “irtidad” or “ridda,” usually translated from the Arabic as “apostasy,” but with connotations of rebellion and treason. Indeed, it is the worst of all crimes that a Muslim can commit, worse than murder. With few exceptions, the jurists of all Sunni and Shiite schools prescribe execution for all adults who leave the faith not under duress; the recommended punishment is beheading at the hands of a cleric.

Because no government is likely to allow the prosecution of a President Obama another provision of Muslim law is perhaps more relevant: it prohibits punishment for any Muslim who kills any apostate, and effectively prohibits interference with such a killing. At the very least, that would complicate the security planning of state visits by President Obama to Muslim countries, because the very act of protecting him would be sinful for Islamic security guards.”So in other words, the idea Israel is trying to communicate to el Presidente is that if he gets out of line, he will be killed and it will be blamed on an “Islamic extremist” angry with Obama’s “apostasy”.

In conveying to Obama the idea that Israel means business and is all-too capable of bypassing every layer of security and defense established for the protection of the most powerful man in the world by bringing someone within spitting distance of both him and his family, on November 24, 2009, in a headline-making event that kept the nation buzzing for weeks, Tareq Salahi, (described as an Israeli-born Palestinian) crashed an official White House state dinner party held for the Prime Minister of India, getting close enough to the President as to have photos taken of them later put on Facebook.

In order to do this, Salahi had to pass through 2 Secret Service security checkpoints, both of which required his name being on the invitation list (neither one did) as well as his being able to produce photo identification. The breach in security was so serious that it resulted in both Congressional and criminal investigations involving every Federal agency tasked with providing personal protection for the President.

Whether it can be proven that this was an Israeli operation or not, the fact is that the Jewish owned/managed mainstream media in America made the most of it in driving home the theme to Obama–NO ONE is untouchable, Mr. President. The impossible-to-avoid-noting similarities between this event and the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy by the Israeli-born Palestinian Sirhan Sirhan on June 5, 1968 for reasons dealing with the political situation in the Middle East were as subtle as the horse’s head under the bed sheets in the movie The Godfather.

The entire drama involving the exodus of Jewish power from the Obama White House is entirely reminiscent of those infamous news stories appearing immediately after 9/11, where so few Israelis were listed amongst the dead that day. In the case of 9/11, the world found out afterwards that Israelis were warned to stay away via the instant messaging system Odigo headquartered in Israel, whereas in this case, the world is finding out before the planned event. Israel and her supporters obviously do not want their people ‘there’ when whatever ticking time bomb that has been placed there goes off.

One thing all can be sure of–for individuals such as Emmanuel, Axelrod and Summers to be leaving posts as prestigious and important to not only them personally but as well to the continued well-being of “home sweet home”–Israel, is tantamount to someone walking away from a found bag of money 6 feet high and 6 feet wide and in doing so, forfeiting all the power, privilege and prestige that such a find promises.

Besides the personal loss, there is the “weight of history” to consider. Right now, Israel needs as many eyes and ears in the White House as possible in terms of her very survivability. With biblical role models such as Joseph and Esther who wormed their ways into the highest places of power in their respective times and respective places, the fact that 3 rather large rats are fleeing the ship of state at this crucial time in history can only mean that through some extraordinary means they know a torpedo is approaching the ship and they know it will be sinking soon.
