Israeli Turned Palestinian Activist

From The Intel Hub

Popular 1965 Hal David/Burt Bacharach lyrics said “What the world needs now is love, sweet love. It’s the only thing that there’s just too little of.”

It applies aptly to how Israel treats Palestinians.

Daily headlines explain. They hardly vary from one day to the next.

On June 18, Israeli forces shelled northern Gaza.

Two Palestinian men were killed. Four others were injured.

IDF officials called them terrorists. They were innocent civilians threatening no one.

Other air strikes injured five Palestinians, including a woman and child.

Israeli soldiers shot and killed two so-called infiltrators.

It’s a spurious term Israel uses to declare Palestinians illegal on their own land in their own country.

It’s used to extrajudicially deport them.

Other Monday headlines said settlers killed two Palestinians.

The IDF invaded Jenin city and its refugee camp. Clashes followed. Live rounds were fired. Daily incursions terrorize Palestinians. Arrests and detentions follow.

Earlier in June, 15 Silwan youths were kidnapped. Parents weren’t told what happened.

Gaza farmers are denied permission to export crops. Fishermen are attacked at sea. Israeli border guards use Palestinian children for target practice.

No deal looks imminent to free Mahmoud Sarsak. He’s maliciously imprisoned unjustly.

In protest, he’s been hunger striking for over 90 days. Israel doesn’t care if he lives or dies.

Neither to PA authorities. They’ve done nothing to help him. He’s a national hero facing imminent death.

Their contempt for their own people is scandalous. They’re concerned only for their own self-interest.

Courageous Israelis react to what’s intolerable. On June 17, Press TV headlined “Ex-Israeli soldier wants to join Palestinian resistance,” saying:

Former IDF soldier Andre Pshenichnikov, a Tajik Jewish immigrant, announced plans to “renounce his Israeli citizenship and move to….the Deheishe Refugee Camp near Bethlehem.”

He once did restaurant and construction work there. He’s traveling in Europe and will move on return. “He began questioning Israel’s policies toward Palestine while he was still serving in the military.”

( Zionism is another name for Nazism! )


He told AP:

“I hate Zionism….I want to be part of the Palestinian resistance….I call for other Israelis who support the existence of a state of Palestine to do the same, to come live in the West Bank or Gaza as Palestinians.”

Haaretz columnist Amira Hass contributes important writing on Palestine.A daughter of two holocaust survivors, she reported several years from Gaza and Ramallah.

She believes accurate reporting depends on it.In December 2008, she sailed on the Free Gaza Dignity mission. It delivered vital medical and other supplies.

UK Baroness Jenny Tonge and nine others traveled with her.They arrived unharmed. Others weren’t as lucky. On return to Israel, Hass was arrested for entering Gaza without permission. She resided there several months longer.

On return in May 2009, she was again arrested “for violating a law which forbids residence in an enemy state.”

Israel calls Palestinians wanting to live free in their homeland terrorists. 

{Fearless Israeli Leader and Zionist BUG -‘ Nut-an-yoyo ‘}

Hass was painted with the same brush.

Pshenichnikov and other activist Israelis renounce what’s intolerable to accept. Everyone should!

On June 18, Haaretz contributor Akiva Eldar headlined “Vice premier Ya’alon revealed Netanyahu’s true intentions,” saying:

He’s a top Israeli official, a member of its security cabinet, and “one of the closest people to” Netanyahu. In an earlier interview, he “wipe(d) the makeup of the prime minister’s face.”

He explained the “illusion” of a two-state solution. When he was chief of staff, “he wanted to ‘sear the consciousness’ of Yasser Arafat so the Palestinian leader would realize” he had to bend to Israel’s will.

Ya’alon now “wants Abbas to prove that the consciousness of every toddler in Ramalah is seared with the fact that” all Judea and Samaria belongs solely to Jews. Others aren’t wanted. They won’t be tolerated.

Moral and legal issues don’t bother him. He calls persecuted Palestinians “aggressor(s).” He says “they have an ethos to destroy, while our ethos to build will triumph.”

He’s Israel’s main strategist. He’s “burying the two-state solution alongside Oslo,” the road map, and other fake peace initiatives. Israel needs violence to maintain institutionalized state terror.

Victims are called “aggressors.” Propaganda regurgitates big lies. Vice premiers create them. Israeli politicians campaign on them. Innocent lives are destroyed to perpetuate their power.

Earlier Ya’alon told Likud’s Jewish Leadership faction head Moshe Feiglin:

(E)very time the politicians bring a dove of peace here, we as an army have to clean up after it.”

He meant ruthless force, mass killing, state terror, and other efforts to prevent peace.

In Netanyahu’s government, he’s (un)contaminated by dove droppings.”

Israeli politicians devise new ways of preventing them. In writing about “Israel’s New Wars,” Uri Ben Eliezer explained separation politics.

It “contains a connection.” It isolates East Jerusalem and separates Gaza from the West Bank. Effectively it separates Palestinians from themselves and Israeli settlers.

At the same time, it gives Israel access to all valued Judea and Samaria land. It violates international law and Oslo.

Israeli policies let political extremists legitimize occupation harshness, falsify notions of an Iranian threat, stoke fears of war, and convince people that territorial concessions threaten Israel’s survival.

As chief Israeli strategist, Ya’alon’s in charge of spreading big lies. At issue is too many people believe them.

Haaretz contributor Yitzhak Laor added more food for thought. Headlining his article “Israeli racism is embedded in daily politics of every state body,” he said:

It requires political opposition to work. Hardliners incite anti-African migrant hatred. Doing so replicates European neo-fascism. “Anyone who stands in airport lines….understands how” dark-skinned people are persecuted.

Israeli and Western racism “divides people first and foremost by the color of their skin, and that’s how it’s always been.”

Israel is especially tarnished. By law, it’s a racist state. Its Basic Laws institutionalized it.

“On the basis of this racism, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, National Union MK Michael Ben Ari, Interior Minister Eli Yishai and MK Ofir Akunis of Likud can join together and speak of “the danger to the Jewish state.

Israeli citizenship laws spurn non-Jews. Israeli rabbis act as “a separation fence between Jews and non-Jews.”

Israel’s 1950 Law of Return applies solely to Jews. It automatically grants entry and citizenship to people of Jewish ancestry. It states: “Every Jew has the right to come to this country as an oleh (a basic Zionist Aliyah right).”

Non-Jews aren’t wanted. Arabs aren’t tolerated. Persecuting them ruthlessly exposes a festering sore. Doing it makes abhorrent policy look normal.

It calls Arab population growth “a cancer in the body of the nation.” It claims educating Palestinian children is dangerous.

It believes treating them equally subverts notions of Jewish supremacy, specialness, and uniqueness as “God’s chosen people.”

================

It states violence, not peaceful coexistence affirms it.

So does confrontation, militarism, intimidation, and naked aggression.

It defends indefensible lawlessness.

It believes non-Jews alone commit human rights abuses.

Israeli belligerence is called self-defense.

Activists like Pshenichnikov, Hass and others resist.

Growing numbers join them.

Israeli crimes of war and against humanity are exposed to the cold light of day.

They’re in plain sight to see.

They’re too outrageous to ignore.

Perpetuating them threatens its host and humanity.

What better reason to become activist against them.

Spanish Activists Seek Arrest of Banksters

 

From WideShut.co.uk

…your eyes are open, but you do not see…

Jun 20th, 2012 – By 

[1.]

As Spanish protesters continue to rally outside the headquarters of financial institution Bankia in Madrid, a proactive group within the movement have taken their point further and filed an official criminal complaint against the former management of the bank [1].

Like many other nations around the world the Spanish people face crippling austerity due to the bailing out of the corrupt global financial system, which collectively crashed the world’s economy due to reckless lending and fraudulent investments.

Bankia, which was bailed out and partially nationalised like Britain’s RBS, was a causative factor in Spain’s spiraling debt crisis, and in order to loosen the immediate burden the Spanish Government are to accept a massive EU bailout package, which will be the responsibility of the people to pay back through cuts, taxes and privatization.

Former Bankia President Rodrigo Rato, who took the position after leading the International Monetary Fund between 2004 and 2007, is a key figure in the Bankia lawsuit.

He along with several members of the bank’s board are accused of falsifying accounts and providing fraudulent information to shareholders, who were kept in the dark about the institution’s shady practices and were lead to believe it was in a better position that it really was.

Despite the allegations Rato has had the gall to ask for a severance payment of 1.2 million euros from Bankia so he can move on to greener pastures in the financial industry.

Citizens however have been left with their head barely above the water.

13 of the bank’s shareholders who are represented in the complaint lost thousands of Euros each after initially being told the company made a net profit of 309 million euros in 2011.

In reality the bank actually lost nearly three billion euros.

Instead of criminal proceedings the crooks were rewarded with a 19 billion bailout from the Government, tipping the country’s financial burdens over the edge and forcing the nation itself to seek its own bailout from the EU dictators.

Clemence Cohen Eduy, a 62 year old shareholder explained:

“I am very angry. I lost 3,000 euros. This is an enormous amount for me as I live off a small pension. I trusted my bank.”

“I feel like I was completely deceived,” said 37-year-old Carlos Blanco.

Juan Moreno Yague, the lawyer of the activists said in a statement:

“This is only the beginning,” claiming to have “inside information” that also implicates the Bank of Spain and its former governer, Miguel Angel Fernandez Ordonez, in the fraud.

Citizens have come together to let the Government know that they’re not “all in this together”; the fault is not theirs and the debt burden should be on the doorstep of the banksters not hardworking citizens.

Over 19,000 euros was raised through an online campaign, which helped fund the legal proceedings. 

“We want to show that there will be no more impunity. Those responsible must go to jail,” said a spokesperson for the movement.

[2]

[3.]

In a picture the world is now all too familiar with protesters have been met with a heavy hand by state police [2], who rather than arresting those that caused the mess, have been using excessive force against those who want to see real change to the financial system.

However protesters aren’t all peaceful, and really who can blame them?

Spain is the fourth biggest economy in the eurozone but has essentially been sold down the river to financial criminals and EU fascists.

They’re stuck in a double-dip recession with a quarter of the population out of work, including half of young people.

Spanish coal workers are at the forefront of austerity and have decided enough is enough.

Armed with homemade rockets, slingshots and rocks they have managed to force officers completely out of the town of Cirena in northern Spain [3].

Like Greece, Spain threatens to sink the Euro dream.

Perhaps this is a sign that that’s all it was, a dream, and that nation states would be much more stable if they were allowed to regain their sovereignty and put their own people first.

Wall Street elites want to dump Obama, go for confrontation under Romney

 

From the Trenches

 Posted on June 20, 2012 by Admin


Press TV  The public opinion pollsters are telling the world that the race for the White House between President Obama and the Republican Party candidate Willard “Mitt” Romney is still too close to call, but Obama has already lost the election when it comes to the elitist bankers and officials of the semi-secret Bilderberg Group.

Bilderberg held their annual meeting in Chantilly, Virginia at the end of May.

Romney reportedly attended the meeting, but Obama did not.

Events since then leave little doubt that a key sector of the ruling elite of the NATO countries now want Obama out, and Romney in. 

This development, if confirmed, is very ominous for world peace.

Obama was the Bilderberg candidate of 2008, but the financiers now think he has outlived his usefulness.

Many key groups in the Democratic Party have been antagonized by Obama’s repeated betrayals.

Internationally, Obama’s trademark color revolutions have been stopped by the courageous resistance of Syria and its allies.

Given Russian and Chinese refusal to approve aggression against Syria, the NATO elites want to go back to a Bush-Cheney confrontation policy.

Romney has been running as the biggest warmonger in either party, attacking the trigger-happy Obama as a weakling.

Romney says that he wants to option of a sneak attack against Iran in his hands, and not just on the table, as Obama says.

Romney also proclaims that Russia under Putin is the number one geopolitical enemy of the US.

Romney has signaled that he would junk the latest START (Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty) between the US and Russia – one of the few results of Obama’s “reset” – thus starting a new nuclear arms race.

Romney is also calling for 100,000 more troops to be added to the Pentagon’s forces.

For his foreign policy advisors, Romney has turned overwhelmingly to pro-Israel neocons who are veterans of the catastrophic foreign policy of the Bush-Cheney years.

Of 40 key advisors identified so far, over 70% are known Bush-Cheney warmongers.

“More enemies, fewer friends” has, according to The Nation magazine, emerged as the slogan of this clique.

Romney’s list includes Robert Kagan of the infamous neocon family; his brother planned the Iraq surge of 2007.

John Bolton is one of the most abrasive and aggressive of the neocon cabal.

Eiiot Cohen was top counselor to Condi Rice at the State Department in 2007-2009.

Most of these figures were part of the Project for a New American Century and its successor, William Kristol’s Foreign Policy Initiative.

Another is Cofer Black of the CIA, who presided over so many intelligence failures but who is now again angling for a top job.

Then there is Robert Joseph, who added the demonic 16 words to Bush’s State of the Union in 2003, falsely accusing Iraq of seeking nuclear materials in Niger.

It is almost certain that not one of Romney’s foreign policy team considers the Iraq war to have been a mistake. 

As The New York Times reported in early April, Romney has been a close friend of Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin “Bibi” Netanyahu since 1976, when both worked together at the Boston Consulting Group.

Since then, Romney and Netanyahu have been joined at the hip, with Romney getting political advice from Bibi when he was Governor of Massachusetts, and Bibi calling Romney for financial expertise in designing sanctions and other economic warfare measures against Iran.

Romney has not made a secret of this 36-year relationship: in one television debate he boasted that he would never do anything regarding the Middle East without getting approval from Netanyahu.

As Romney advisor and neocon Dan Senor (who was the spokesman for the horrific US occupation of Iraq) tweeted recently, “Mitt-Bibi will be the new Reagan-Thatcher”

This foreshadows even more ambitious US-Israeli operations against countries like Iran, in contrast to the mutual dislike between Obama and Bibi.

Some of the Bilderbergers began undercutting Obama as soon as their own gathering ended.

Reactionary columnist Peggy Noonan wrote a column for the Washington Post announcing that the Obama regime was collapsing like a house of cards. 

Wall Street operative Steven Rattner, the car czar who had managed the bankruptcy of the US auto industry Obama, betrayed his old boss by telling a television audience that Obama’s approval is in free fall.

Itamar Rabinowitz of Israel, another Bilderberg invitee, ranted that Obama should have attacked Syria long ago, so any loss of life there now would be due to White House inaction.

Bill Clinton, supposedly an Obama supporter, is doing everything possible to sink him.

Bill and Hillary Clinton hate Obama because he robbed them of the White House in 2008.

As long as Bilderberg was backing Obama, the Clintons had to bite their tongues.

Now that Bilderberg has turned against Obama, the Clintons can act out their hatred to the utmost.

Bill Clinton is saying that it is not right to criticize Romney because of his work as a Wall Street asset stripper, shutting down factories and destroyingjobs, lives, and communities to gain huge profits.

Clinton also says that the Bush-Cheney tax cuts for rich parasites must be continued.

With this, two of Obama’s meager stock of talking points for the election have been undercut.

Numerous scandals and potential scandals against Obama have emerged. Reporters Jo Becker and Scott Shane of the New York Times, using leaks from top White House officials, on May 29 portrayed Obama’s “Terror Tuesdays,” when the President meets with his advisors to decide which alleged terrorists the CIA will kill without trial using drones over Pakistan, Yemen, and other countries.

Obama signs the kill orders himself. Obama’s campaign slogan of 2008 may have morphed to “hope and change – and death warrants.”

Sometimes the victims are US citizens.

The article makes clear that Obama prefers killing his targets to capturing them, since sending them to Guantanamo Bay reminds voters that he broke his promise to shut down that infamous prison.

Much the same story is told in David Klaidman’s new book Kill or Capture.

Killing a US citizen without a court verdict constitutes extra-judicial murder under US law, so Obama is now vulnerable to charges – especially if his Attorney General Eric Holder is forced to resign, which may happen soon. 

Also using leaks, David Sanger of The New York Times has published Confront and Conceal, a book about Obama’s Operation Olympic Games, a joint US-Israeli campaign of cyber-warfare against Iran.

This involved the creation of new and destructive computer viruses, some of which have supposedly escaped into the world wide web.

Revelations like these, coming from newspapers that were devoted to Obama in 2008, are doubly damaging to the White House.

For Obama’s left-liberal antiwar base, they are a reminder that Obama is a more cynical aggressor than Bush and Cheney.

For Republicans, they offer a chance to condemn Obama for deliberately leaking vital state secrets to make himself look like a strong leader and thus help his re-election campaign.

The campaign against Obama for leaking secret information to the press is being led by Democratic Senator Diane Feinstein of California.

She says the leaks under Obama are the worst she has seen in her 11 years on the Senate Intelligence Committee.

A few weeks earlier, Feinstein had embarrassed Obama by announcing that the Afghan Taliban were getting stronger – the opposite of what the White House claims.

Obama’s stock among Democratic voters has never been lower.

When he was a candidate, Obama promised he would walk the picket lines himself to defend the rights of workers.

But, in the recent attempt to oust the union-busting Governor Walker of Wisconsin (a relative of the Bush family), Obama never lifted a finger to help the workers.

Many workers now say that Obama was not there for them, so they will not be there for Obama in the November election.

Reactionary reporters are now happy to take risks to insult Obama.

A reporter for the Daily Caller interrupted the President’s press conference last week with heckling, preventing him from finishing his speech.

The word is out: the wind has changed, and nobody needs to be afraid of lame duck Obama any more.

======================================================

{ XANIEL’S NOTE : Instead, we will be crapping our pants at the very thought

of ‘ The Anti-Christ Romney ‘ taking office and leading us to the end of the world on behalf of Zionist Israel !!

OH, what great fun we’ll have then….

Of course the stage is set for Obama to do this also.

So the only smart choice is Ron Paul, who I believe is still in this,

whether the GOP believes it or not. See story below.}~~~Xaniel777

RNC calls ‘frivolous’ lawsuit by Ron Paul supporters

 

From the Trenches

Posted on June 19, 2012 by Admin


Washington (CNN) – The Republican National Committee is brushing off a lawsuit against the party by Ron Paul supporters as “frivolous” but it is nonetheless coordinating a “joint defense” effort to fight the legal challenge, according to an internal RNC memorandum obtained by CNN Tuesday.

The complaint, filed in U.S. District Court in California last Tuesday by over 100 self-described delegates to the Republican National Convention in Tampa, alleges that the RNC and its chairman, Reince Priebus, quietly and improperly aided Mitt Romney throughout the GOP nomination fight.

The legal filing, which names Priebus and GOP chairmen in every state as defendants, “seeks the guidance of the court” on whether the plaintiffs are free to break with certain state party rules and vote for the candidate of their choice at the August convention.

The plaintiffs claim that so-called “binding” delegate rules – in which delegates are required to vote for the winner of their state’s primary or caucus at the convention – violate federal law and prevent delegates from exercising their “Constitutional right to vote their conscience” in Tampa.

Because delegates may shift their votes at the convention, they argue, Romney does not yet have the nomination locked up.

According to the complaint, however, the RNC and affiliated state GOP leaders systematically “engaged in a scheme to intimidate and harass” delegates supporting candidates other than Romney during the nomination process.

This “harassment,” the suit alleges, included numerous violations of party rules, threats of violence, ballot tampering at state conventions and “intimidating demands” that delegates sign affidavits promising to vote for Romney.

The Paul campaign, now in limbo but still aiming to have a prominent voice at the convention, says it is not involved in the lawsuit.

“We have nothing to do with it and do not support it,” said Paul adviser Jesse Benton.

========================================================================

{ XANIEL’S NOTE : This statement by Paul adviser Jesse Benton, puzzles me greatly.

The Ron Paul camp knows better than anyone all the fraud and illegal crap that has be pulled thus far.

Although I understand the part of  ‘ NOT HAVING ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT ‘,  

I am completely lost on the part of ‘ NOT SUPPORTING IT ‘

Supporting the effort to make RNC answer for their illegal activities is not only advised by

‘WE THE PEOPLE ‘, it is also DEMANDED !!

I now question Paul’s position on this.

” Please tell me he did not make a deal with Romney like his son did.” }~~Xaniel777

========================================================================

RNC Chief Legal Counsel John R. Phillippe Jr. informed Republican state party chairman of the lawsuit on in an internal party memorandum Tuesday morning and asked if they want to add their names to the party’s defense.

“It appears that all of the Plaintiffs are supporters of the candidacy of Ron Paul,” Phillippe wrote.

He added: “We view the suit as completely frivolous but one to which a serious response must be made.”

Phillippe said the RNC is planning to present a “joint defense on behalf of all the Defendants” and has scheduled a conference call this week to discuss the matter.

Asked about the complaint, a spokeswoman for the RNC said “we’re not worried about it.”

Richard Gilbert, the Santa Ana, California attorney representing the Paul supporters, said the suit is “clearly not a frivolous case.”

“When the RNC calls this frivolous, I think it’s very telling about how the RNC has no respect for the delegates at the convention,” Gilbert told CNN.

“And that’s disappointing. As Mitt Romney would say, I would bet you $10,000 that not one their lawyers say to federal judge that this is a frivolous lawsuit.

“These are delegates to a national convention who are asking the judge for guidance whether to follow federal law or whether to follow state party rules or state bylaws,” he added. “How can that be a frivolous case?”
