Racist Nazi Jew father tells Arab teacher: ‘My blood is pure, yours isn’t’




The father of a grade 7 student entered his child’s school and cursed the Arabic teacher on two different occasions.

The school sent him away and filed a complaint with the police.

The father came to the school, just before Hanukkah, after hearing that his son had to do a project in Arabic class that dealt with Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

At first the father went to the teacher, who in turn told him to address the class coordinator, who organizes all Arabic lessons. They then started to have a conversation.

After speaking for a few minutes, during which the father teased the Arabic teacher, the coordinator said that she herself was a Muslim Arab. The father then started cursing the coordinator as well, saying, “The difference between us is that my blood is pure and yours isn’t.”

The student purportedly received permission to do the project on a different topic, but the teacher wasn’t aware of this, and she refused to accept the new project. On Monday night, the father returned to the school, met with the coordinator, and began yelling at her. “You Arab, who do you think you are that you’ll decide what to do with my son.”

The father told his son “not to listen to this Arab or the second Arab.”

After the incidents, the school filed a complaint with the police. The Education Ministry’s Southern District said that it verified that the school filed a complaint, and that the father has been ordered to stay away from the school. “The father’s contentions have no place in an educational institution and they’re in complete contradiction to the integral model of values and education that the ministry is bringing about.”

The police spokesperson for the Eilat Region confirmed a complaint had filed, and that the police were investigating.

Nazi army recruits tour al-Aqsa


More than 100 newly recruited Nazi soldiers entered the Islamic Holy al-Aqsa compound escorted by large numbers of Nazi police officers on Tuesday.

Eyewitnesses said more than 100 male and female recruits entered the compound through the Moroccan Gate and made stops across the compound listening to briefings by Nazi tour guides about the significance of the compound.

Separately, a group of Nazi settlers and employees of the Nazi telecommunication provider Bezeq also visited the compound earlier on Tuesday.

Because of the sensitive nature of the Al-Aqsa compound, Nazi maintains a compromise with the Islamic trust that controls it to not allow non-Muslim prayers in the area.

Nazi forces regularly escort Racist Nazi Jewish visitors to the site, leading to tension with Palestinian worshipers.

The compound, which sits just above the Western Wall plaza, houses both the Dome of the Rock and Al-Aqsa mosque and is the third holiest site in Islam.

It is also venerated as Judaism’s most holy place as it sits where Jews believe the First and Second Temples once stood. The Second Temple was destroyed by the Romans in 70 AD.

According to mainstream Jewish religious leaders, Jews are forbidden from entering for fear they would profane the “Holy of Holies,” or the inner sanctum of the Second Temple.

Al-Aqsa is located in East Jerusalem, a part of the internationally recognized Palestinian territories that have been illegally occupied by the Nazi military since 1967 war.

WHO Concerned over Gaza’s Health Crisis

Gaza Strip

JERUSALEM, December 9, 2013 (WAFA) – The World Health Organization (WHO) Monday expressed concern over the health situation in the Gaza Strip.

It said in a statement that “the accumulation of shortages in basic supplies in Gaza is leading to rapid deterioration in the social determinants of health for the population of 1.7 million Palestinians.”

It is also straining the health system’s ability to continue to provide a good standard of health care, it added.

“The chronically ill, newborns, transplant recipients, the elderly, persons with disability, emergency patients, and the poor are most vulnerable, but the mental health and public health of the whole population is also at risk from increasing stress and declining services,” said WHO.

Public health representatives from various Gaza institutions met last week to discuss the decreasing ability of the fragile health infrastructure to cope with critical shortages.

With 30% of medicines and 50% of medical disposables out of stock at the Central Drug Store in Gaza, health care providers cannot supply patients with the right kind or amount of medications.

Large generators for powering hospitals during 14-hour electricity cuts have frequent breakdowns. One of two generators powering the Gaza European hospital burned out last month.

The remaining generators are unreliable and diesel is scarce, expensive and can supply only partial needs, such as the 200 patients in intensive care units. In recent months, government hospitals have reduced non-urgent surgeries by almost half in an effort to conserve fuel and medical supplies for urgent cases, said WHO.

“Except for a stoppage in life-saving treatments, for example dialysis for patients with kidney disease, the impact on health is largely invisible. It translates as more suffering for the patient, unnecessary complications, lower quality of life and often premature death,” explained the statement.

Most recently Gaza residents are suffering from disruption in fuel access, making long electricity blackouts a constant problem for every household and health facility. Power shortages cause a chain reaction of consequences that directly and indirectly affect population health and the health system, as water supplies are curtailed, sewage pumps rendered inoperable, and ground transportation, even for basic public health services such as solid waste removal, becomes less frequent.

The severe and prolonged shortages of fuel, electricity and medicines along with widespread poverty stem from six years of Israeli blockade and tight restrictions into and out of Gaza’s borders for people and goods.

Resupply of medicines and disposables has been sporadic due in part to chronic shortages in the main drug warehouse caused by the Palestinian Authority budget deficit.

Palestinian Authority resupply of drugs and disposables has been reduced over the past six months to one shipment of $1 million compared to $5 million in the previous half year. Medical donations and medical missions that used to arrive to Gaza from charities in the Arab world have almost halted.

Middle income families can rely on small generators for domestic use — expensive to operate and often dangerous — but they are no substitute for direct power, said WHO.

At home, patients, and especially the poor, who depend on portable medical equipment to aid their breathing, heart function, monitoring, home dialysis, and even to supply heat, in the case of infants or elderly patients, are particularly stressed by unstable supply of electricity.

WHO called for long-term systemic solutions to the chronic humanitarian crisis of shortages, rather than short-term aid which relieves but fails to improve the underlying social determinants of health in Gaza.

I$raHell’s isolation grows as it falls out with Romania and the Netherlands


It’s been yet another bad week for I$raHell.

First, its loyal poodle Britain fired its first-ever warning shot, signalling that it may have just about had enough of the apartheid state’s deceptions and violations of international law.

And now, the Zionist entity has got into a diplomatic row with Romania, which has told Tel Aviv that it will not allow Romanian construction workers to be employed in the illegal, Jews-only colonies in the occupied West Bank, Israel’s military radio reported on 10 December.

Differences between the two countries centre on Romania’s insistence that Israel guarantee that Romanian construction workers would not be employed on the Jewish colonies, which are considered illegal under international law.

As if this were not enough, the wrangle with Romania is Israel’s second diplomatic row with a European Union country this week. It follows a dispute with the Netherlands over a new security scanner to be installed on the Gaza border that Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte was to have inaugurated on 1 December, the French news agency AFP reported.

The Dutch government had hoped the scanner would help increase the export of goods from Gaza to the West Bank, but Israeli officials accused the Dutch of trying to impose “political conditions”.

Also on 1 December Dutch Foreign Minister Frans Timmermans refused to accept an Israeli military escort around Palestinian-administered areas of the West Bank city of Hebron.

And there’s more to come. In January 2014 Israel can look forward to new EU guidelines coming into force, which ban the funding of projects linked to the Jews-only colonies in the occupied West Bank and the illegally annexed Arab East Jerusalem.

American shot in Benghazi is allegedly CIA agent – Libyan sources



Photo: EPA

Sources within Libya, including intelligence sources within the Libyan Tribal system have reported that the American shot in Benghazi today Ronald Thomas Smith II was not a teacher as was widely reported. Tribal elders report that currently there are no foreign teachers employed in Libya and that Ronald Smith was in Tripoli meeting John McCain on Tuesday and Wednesday according to sources who were present during the meetings.

According to inside sources members of an Islamic extremist group called “the Council of Libyan Rebels” organized an ambush of Mr. Smith when he returned from Tripoli. The man responsible for the killing of Smith is reportedly one Wesam bin Hameed but this has not been corroborated.

Bin Hameed is associated with Ansar al-Sharia and is a well-known Islamic extremist terrorist leader and according to Libyan sources there are individuals who were eyewitnesses to Bin Hameed’s direct involvement in the killing of Chris Stevens. According to sources Mohammed Morsi was the head of Ansar Al Sharia and planned the attack on Chris Stevens, something that would implicate his involvement in the killing of Stevens.

Libyan sources point to the strange behavior of Mr. Smith and many circumstantial facts that point to him as being CIA, he had been living in the CIA compound where Stevens was killed, and was regularly seen jogging, something unheard of in Benghazi, there are also suspicions due to his meeting John McCain.

According to sources at the McCain meetings, McCain was in Libya to meet with Abd Albaset Gteet, who is apparently being backed by the US to be the next Prime Minister of Libya and who will be instrumental in a forming a western backed government.

Tribal sources say the tribes and the Libyan patriots have effectively shut off the flow of oil out of Libya and that there are European countries absolutely in trouble because Libyan Bonney Light oil is the only oil they can refine because of restrictions in their refineries.

American teacher killed in Libya’s Benghazi – hospital

An American teacher was shot dead in Benghazi on Thursday, 15 months after a deadly attack on the US consulate in Libya’s second city, medical and security sources said. The dead man was a US citizen who taught at the city’s international school, security services spokesman Ibrahim al-Sharaa said.

He was shot dead as he was taking his morning jog in the central Al-Fwihet neighbourhood of the city, Sharaa said.

The body of a 33-year-old US citizen who had died of gunshot wounds was brought in to the Benghazi Medical Centre, its spokesman Khalil Gwider said.

Benghazi international school director Adel al-Mansuri said the slain American had taught chemistry since late last year.

In other violence in the increasingly lawless eastern city on Thursday, two Libyan soldiers were shot dead in separate incidents, the latest of dozens of security personnel to be gunned down in recent weeks, security officials said.

The violence rocking the city, which was the cradle of the NATO-backed rebellion against veteran dictator Muammar Gaddafi, is largely blamed on jihadist groups that have mushroomed since he was toppled and killed in 2011.

Chief among them is Ansar al-Sharia, a jihadist group accused of the September 11, 2012 attack on the US consulate in Benghazi that killed ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.

Libya’s new authorities have tried in vain to integrate former rebels who helped topple Gaddafi into the regular armed forces, with many militias carving their own fiefdoms, each with its own ideology and regional allegiances.

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei (1st L) addresses members of the Supreme Council of Cultural Revolution in Tehran, on December 10, 2013.
Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has called for wise action against cultural onslaught, warning that imported video games and toys are promoting Western lifestyle in Iran.

“This issue (cultural invasion) must be dealt with through creative efforts and, to that effect, the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting and Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance shoulder very heavy responsibility,” Ayatollah Khamenei said in a meeting with members of the Supreme Council of Cultural Revolution in Tehran on Tuesday.

The Leader urged the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance to focus on producing books and attractive films, designing useful video games and developing attractive and meaningful toys.

Ayatollah Khamenei stated that video games and toys imported from abroad are affecting Iranian youth, juniors and children through promotion of Western lifestyle and behavior.

The Leader said at least “hundreds” of media outlets across the world are specifically seeking to “influence the mindset and behavior of the Iranian nation.”

Venezuelan envoy highlights Iran’s influential role in int’l power balance


Tehran, Dec 10, IRNA – Venezuelan Ambassador to Iran Amenhotep Zambrano said that Iran boasts of an influential role in international equilibrium due to its outstanding position in the international scene.

Talking to IRNA on the ninth anniversary of Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America (ALBA), he added that December is the month of revolution, convergence for the Latin America and ALBA was set up in this month.

This year, Venezuelan Embassy in Tehran has arranged various programs and seminars to mark the occasion, he said.

Since its establishment nine years ago, ALBA has issued various statements in support of the Palestinian nation, Syrians’ right to resolve their internal problems, Iran’s entitlement to peaceful nuclear energy.

Stating that ALBA favors changes in the UN structures in the interest of all the nations, the ambassador said that Latin America has always pursued world peace and a region without any military base.

Zambrano pointed to Tehran-Caracas political commonalities and said that he believes that both nations are seeking dignity in the field of foreign policy, and they will never allow the others interfere in their internal affairs.

“The two countries are moving along their revolutionary path, calling for an end to the US’ intervention in other nations’ internal issues,” he said.

Obama takes aim at I$raHell positions on Iran




President Obama sharply criticized as not viable several Israeli government postures on talks with Iran.

In a wide-ranging talk with Haim Saban, the entertainment mogul who funds the annual Saban Forum in Washington, Obama took aim at claims by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that increased pressure during the interim talks between Iran and world powers would extract greater concessions from Iran.

Obama anticipated a final deal that would grant Iran some uranium enrichment capabilities.

Alluding to the view of Netanyahu and a number of lawmakers in Congress that additional sanctions should be applied, the president said, “What this comes down to is the perception that if we kept churning up the pressure, new sanctions, more sanctions, more military threats, etc., that eventually Iran would cave.”

Instead, Obama said, increased pressure would likely drive away allies who have helped keep up the existing pressure on Iran through U.S.-led sanctions.

Obama outlined U.S. red lines in a final agreement, including the dismantling of the plutonium reactor at Arak and the underground nuclear reactor at Fordow, as well as advanced centrifuges.

However, he suggested an enrichment program would remain in place with restrictions that would ensure that “as a practical matter, they don’t have a breakout capacity.”

That, Obama acknowledged, contradicted Netanyahu’s objective that “we can’t accept any enrichment on Iranian soil, full stop.”

Israel’s government believes that Iran has been allowed to advance its nuclear capability to the point where even a modest enrichment capability positions it dangerously close to weapons breakout capacity.

Demanding no enrichment, Obama said, was unrealistic, likening it to a president believing Congress would pass every one of his legislative initiatives.

The Iranians needed to come to a deal that would afford them some “dignity,” he said, and alluded to broad popular support in Iran for some enrichment capacity.

Obama said he did not trust Hassan Rouhani, Iran’s newly elected president, but noted that he was elected on a platform of reaching out to the West.

Again alluding to a Netanyahu claim, he said that those who say Rouhani is not different from his predecessor, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, a Holocaust denier and anti-Israel maximalist, “understate the shift in politics” in Iran.

Obama twice said that he would reassert the military option should talks fail with Iran. He said “we can consider and prepare for” the option.

The U.S. leader emphatically rejected hard lines in dealing with other countries.

“Wherever we see the impulses of a people to move away from conflict and violence and toward a diplomatic resolution of conflict, we should be ready to engage them,” he said. “We have to not constantly assume that it’s not possible for Iran like any country to change over time.”

Obama said he had a good, open relationship with Netanyahu.

“There are occasionally significant tactical differences, but there is a constancy in trying to reach the same goal,” he said of the relationship.

Addressing renewed Israeli-Palestinian talks, Obama said mediation is currently focused on addressing Israeli security needs, and appeared to back away from U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s insistence that the sides achieve a final status agreement next year.

An agreement coming out of the talks, he said, need not address “every detail” but is one that “gets us to a moment that gets us to move forward than move backward.”

Pitched Battles in Kiev as Riot Police Raid Protest Camp


Running battles overnight appeared to have ended with police in retreat and anti-government campaigners still in control of central square

Common Dreams staff

A protester shouts behind riot policemen standing guard in Independence Square in Kiev, Ukraine, on Monday, December 9. Ukrainians occupied the square to denounce President Viktor Yanukovich’s recent tilt away from Europe and towards Russia, as protests continued for a third week. (CNN)Though it appeared early on Wednesday that the restraint promised by Ukraine President Viktor Yanukovych might hold, after darkness fell in the city of Kiev, riot police stormed the barricades set up by protesters around Independence Square where more than three weeks of anti-government demonstrations have been held.

After hours of confrontation, however, the riot police seemed to concede and were reportedly leaving their positions around the square:

According to Reuters:

Battalions of Ukrainian riot police withdrew on Wednesday from a protest camp after moving against demonstrators overnight in the authorities’ biggest attempt yet to reclaim streets after weeks of protests against President Viktor Yanukovich.

Columns of police left positions around the protesters’ main camp in Independence Square and withdrew from state buildings occupied by demonstrators enraged at Yanukovich’s decision to spurn an EU trade deal and move Ukraine further into Russia’s orbit.

Overnight the police had cleared streets near the protest camp, bulldozed tents and skirmished with demonstrators. They later surrounded the City Hall, where protesters who have set up a makeshift hospital in the occupied building sprayed them with water hoses to prevent it from being stormed.

As the Guardian reported earlier:

As temperatures fell to -13C (-55F) during the coldest night of the winter to date, columns of riot police closed in on Independence Square, hub of the protests that erupted after President Viktor Yanukovych pulled out of an association pact with the EU that had been due for signing at a summit in Vilnius last month. Shortly after 1am battalions of police approached the vast square from all sides and began to dismantle the makeshift barricades that have been erected in recent days.

Ukraine’s prime minister, Mykola Azarov, said later on Wednesday the operation by police was a question of clearing the roads. “No force will be applied against peaceful protesters. Do you understand this? Calm down!” he said as he opened a government meeting.

Police pulled out of the square on Wednesday morning, even as more protesters arrived. America’s deputy secretary of state, Victoria Nuland, visited the square and handed out biscuits to protesters.

Several police officers confirmed they had been given orders to clear barricades from the boundaries of the square but not remove the tent camp that has sprung up inside the space.

The fiercest battle came on the north side of the square, where hundreds of black-helmeted riot police struggled for several hours against lines of protesters wearing orange helmets distributed by organisers, in scenes that threatened to descend into all-out pitched battle.

Many police were trapped behind protester lines during the scuffles but the demonstrators set them free and even handed back their shields, only for police to launch new assaults. Eventually chainsaws were used to clear the barbed wire topped wooden barriers and hundreds of riot police moved into the square itself.

And Twitter continues to source photos and updates from the fast-moving development of events:

The Shadowy Spying Networks Transforming Post-9/11 Policing


Report exposes new intelligence sharing practices that steamroll civil liberties and accelerate racial profiling

– Sarah Lazare

Miami-Dade Police Department’s Fusion Center (Photo: Microsoft)The post-9/11 explosion of local law enforcement intelligence gathering and “counter-terrorism” efforts—including the growth of a national network of “joint terrorism task forces” and “fusion centers”—violates civil liberties and perpetuates racial and ethnic profiling while dodging meaningful oversight or standardization, all with hefty backing from federal grants.

So finds a report released Tuesday by the Brennan Center for Justice—a public policy institute at the New York University School of Law.

This study, based on dozens of freedom of information requests as well as studies of 16 major police departments, 19 fusion centers, and 14 Joint Terrorism Task Forces, tracks the dramatic post-September 11th growth of national networks of intelligence and “counter-terrorism” units.

“What we found was organized chaos: a federally subsidized, loosely coordinated system for sharing information that is collected according to varying local standards with insufficient quality control, accountability, or oversight,” the report reads.

“There are some pretty nondescript guidelines that the federal government has issued directing law enforcement to report various activities, but it is up to local police departments to implement those,” explained Michael Price, author of the study and counsel with the Brennan Center for Justice, in an interview with Common Dreams. “When you don’t have clear guidance, people fall back on biases and preconceptions.”

“That has led to surveillance of first amendment protected activities, including protests and photography,” he added. “Law enforcement reports on people who are from the Middle East or appear to be. You will see reports coming in saying that Middle Eastern men were taking photographs. There is a profiling concern.”

In some areas, police have used new “counter-terrorism” intelligence gathering and sharing powers to spy on Muslim communities with no evidence of wrongdoing, the report notes.

Numerous nation-wide “fusion centers,” which are funded by the Department of Justice but under state or local control, are operating as ill-defined counter-terrorism intelligence gathering and sharing centers. These centers snoop and share data with federal agencies, and even the military, with no clear purpose or rules. “In the absence of any significant federal, state, or local oversight, fusion centers continue to play by their own rules,” the study finds.

“Joint terrorism task forces,” headed by the FBI and coordinating data sharing between the Department of Homeland Security, the military, Immigration and Custom’s enforcement, and other agencies, conduct terrorism investigations behind a veil of secrecy, with insufficient transparency to the public or even the local law enforcement participating in them, the study charges.

This report springboards from previous findings from the ACLU that post-September 11, 2001 surveillance constitutes a civil rights and racial profiling nightmare.

“I don’t think these networks are making people safer,” said Price. “I think it is doing the opposite.”
