Palmyra Citadel Liberted by Syrian Army
March 26, 2016 10:50 am
Taxi, I'm for evicting Daesh from the face of the earth; my point was to stress that the good event of kicking it from Palmyra/Tadmore should not overshadow the past of that military prison nor of that of Mezze, of Adra or the Palestine Branch in Damascus where American political prisoners were sent for "special treatment." The Canadian Government that had handed one of its citizens to the Americans for special treatment in Syria paid the man wrongfully arrested and given to the Americans $10 million in damages for wrongful arrest and torture. These prisons after all were one of the reasons behind the uprising in Syria. Tadmor had been shut down shortly before the uprising but reopened to house political prisoners your as soon as the current war started. It's good riddance that Daesh destroyed it completely. Regrettably, they also destroyed important vestiges of the Roman Empire.

Ritzl, Palmyra is more than a Roman heritage site that was once ruled by famous rebel warrior queen, Zenobia. Going by its current name, Tadmor, especially Tadmor Prison destroyed when Daesh took control of the region, you'd find less of an illustrious history from the dark days of the Assad regime. There are a few others equally infamous and appreciated by the US for its renditions program.

No doubt about Israel's and some Gulfies' involvement in the insurrection. Nonetheless, there was a valid opposition because of the oppression but not the extent we were led to believe with the various false-flags that happened. The Zios capitalized on it and blew it out of proportion. The incident at Hama or the ensuing mass executions at Tadmor were in the 80s when there was no Daesh around but simply the Brotherhood. Assad the father and the son taking over was in the year 2000. Maher Arar, the Syrian-Canadian engineer wrongfully arrested and tortured was sent to Syria for a year or so in 2001.

Donald Loves Israel: the Aipac Speech – March 21st, 2016
March 22, 2016 1:10 pm
I guess that was the 'real' Donald Trump. He even outdid Cruz who came on after him. What happened to being a neutral negotiator when he becomes president? I guess he had to blow his load on stage, so the Zionists could cheer. And this was the same candidate who they were starting to whisper is a 'secret Hitler'. Lol... All his UN babble, and dismantling the Iran agreement was so sloppy and lazy and weak. I'm glad he showed his true braggadocious pandering self in the dark confines of the AIPAC kosher temple. What a fucking self absorbed clown. For a guy who pretended to be 'outside of the establishment', he certainly was 110% within the establishment last night. I always suspected he was a fake ass patriot, and now it's totally confirmed.

How Donald Trump Exposed AIPAC BY MITCHELL PLITNICK March 24, 2016 https://newrepublic.com/article/131994/donald-trump-exposed-aipac
But when Trump did speak earlier this week, there was no protest, and the
respectful applause gradually rose to roaring cheers instead. By the end of his speech, Trump had clearly won the AIPAC crowd over.
AIPAC itself recognized that the imagery here was disastrous. It was especially perturbed that Trump had gotten a huge ovation for saying that President Barack Obama “may be the worst thing to ever happen to Israel, believe me, believe me.” So much so, in fact, that the group
made a statement
rebuking Trump and its own audience for egging him on.
But while the boorish Trump was obviously offensive, the substance of his remarks was not terribly different from what the other candidates at the convention had to say...

We should boycott Max Blumenthal, the son of a war profiteer and Hillary Clinton employee, since he's seen fit to blacklist various people(O'Keefe,Atzmon,Weir etc.) within the pro-Palestine movement. Max Blumenthal is a snake.
Do Jewish Grandchildren Solve Trump’s Israel Problem? – Ron Kampeas/Foreign Policy
March 16, 2016 7:46 pm
yes, you can't criticize those who rule over you. Especially when they only represent a tiny minority. Jews always buy elections and expect great favors thereafter - it's why apartheid Israel is never mentioned.

true, you know you aint gonna get that with Hillary - she's already promised to invite him and his silverware-stealing wife to the white house the first week she's elected.
Orthodox Jews Set Sights on N.J. Town and Angry Residents Resist – Elise Young/Bloomberg Business
March 16, 2016 7:04 pm
I once drove through also, Chas. What a self imposed ghetto they’ve created. And you can’t imagine the hostility of the surrounding neighbors. It’s one big welfare ghetto. And they all vote as a block to control politicians Even Hillary got in on the action in the past when she ran against Lazio
(This contrasted with the votes in the Nov. 7 election of Chasidim in the nearby villages of Kiryas Joel and Kaser, which together favored Lazio over Mrs. Clinton by a margin of 3,480-152.
This article tells you the frustration of the neighbors.
(They are not holy people nor the chosen ones. They're just corrupt. Plain and simple.)
Orthodox Jews are well known for cash only businesses, so they can claim welfare and EBT cards. The Amish are not know to milk the Goyim, they only milk cows. They also monopolize the diamond imports – it’s their bread and butter scheme.
A Tango with Trump
March 11, 2016 6:56 pm
"The Ziocon’s biggest fear? The American masses rejecting Israel."
I can't wait for the day that is soon to come. Israel and its fifth columnists inside the US are a band of corrupt thieves, and all the money spent on Israel should be reinvested in other nations that actually provide some reciprocity. And we are still fighting the PNAC wars via Syria. At this point in world history, all that the USA is doing is covering for a corrupted land grab enterprise that can't seem to adapt to the Arab realm that they live in. The Jewish state can't realistically call itself a
any longer. The Holocaust generation is waning and they continue to oppress the Palestinians for their own self gain. Flip the tables on the current day I/P conflict and imagine Jews being locked up in Palestinian detention centers without a judge or jury, or the bombing campaigns of inflicted on Gaza this last decade. The lie that Israel is a victim has become too obvious for the world to swallow.
