Noam Chomsky Discusses BDS

February 5, 2016 2:30 pm
Get lost Chomsky. He acts like he's still an outsider, but he's part of the Judeo establishment powers that have been undermining the US and it's people for decades. Same for Finkelstein - he started getting cold feet when people started listening to his invective against Israel, then calling BDS a cult. Zionism has been so successful because they have players on both sides of any debate.  side note: Chomsky was Dershowitz's camp counselor in their Zionist youth camps in the USA.  

How Politics Has Poisoned Islam – Mustafa Akyol/The New York Times

February 5, 2016 2:40 pm
Never gonna happen. They are one and the same. The Jewish left will always cave to the Jewish fanatics. The settlements are a prime example. All the Jews are so worried about evacuating the settlements because they fear it will start a civil war with Jewish Israelis. They only care about themselves and continue to deligt in the destruction of their middle eastern neighbors..  And check out the newest immoral cretin speaking before Congress. No sense of morality, only concerned with himself and his money, defended by and part of the Jewish tribalists.

Rosenberg is probably  tired of always looking behind his back. I know every time he leaves his residence, he carries a pistol because he fears the worst from the Chabad cult he was once part of.

Danaa, I'm sure he fine. He's probably given up on kvetching about this ever expanding problem, and after some time, you realize that there is little to no progress. He's surely tired of looking into the void and having it stare back at him. I know the feeling...   

Presidential Crimes Then And Now – Paul Craig Roberts/InformationClearingHouse

I can agree with the backwards theory. I think that humans instinctively all possess similar traits, and religions and/or ideologies will draw on these traits. It's the difference between what would Ester do, or what would Jesus do. People often in precarious situations think about religion (and other factors) to make their choices.

Most non Jewish nations don't hold a grudge like Israel and its vengeful tribalists. That vengeance comes from the Tanakh & Talmud. It gives them purpose to have enemies - they embrace it.

Stephen Gets A Straight Answer Out Of Donald Rumsfeld

Blatt complained when he went to Cleveland that he really didn't want to go there, implying he was content in Apartheid town. The Israelis are a collective bunch of surly hive minds. No doubt on Israeli blogs they are calling him a shvartze and Obama's no#1 bro.

Dick Cheney Denounces Nuclear Deal With Iran as ‘Madness’ – Peter Baker/The New York Times

February 8, 2016 6:59 am
The White House did not wait for Mr. Cheney’s speech to fire back on social media. It posted a two-and-a-half minute video on Twitter mocking the former vice president for his support of the invasion of Iraq in 2003 with the hashtag #WrongThenWrongNow." NYT The Israel Lobby 3/23/2006 ...... Maintaining US support for Israel’s policies against the Palestinians is essential as far as the Lobby is concerned, but its ambitions do not stop there. It also wants America to help Israel remain the dominant regional power. The Israeli government and pro-Israel groups in the United States have worked together to shape the administration’s policy towards Iraq, Syria and Iran, as well as its grand scheme for reordering the Middle East. Pressure from Israel and the Lobby was not the only factor behind the decision to attack Iraq in March 2003, but it was critical. Some Americans believe that this was a war for oil, but there is hardly any direct evidence to support this claim. Instead, the war was motivated in good part by a desire to make Israel more secure. According to Philip Zelikow, a former member of the president’s Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board, the executive director of the 9/11 Commission, and now a counsellor to Condoleezza Rice, the ‘real threat’ from Iraq was not a threat to the United States. The ‘unstated threat’ was the ‘threat against Israel’, Zelikow told an audience at the University of Virginia in September 2002. ‘The American government,’ he added, ‘doesn’t want to lean too hard on it rhetorically, because it is not a popular sell.’ On 16 August 2002, 11 days before Dick Cheney kicked off the campaign for war with a hardline speech to the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the Washington Post reported that ‘Israel is urging US officials not to delay a military strike against Iraq’s Saddam Hussein.’ By this point, according to Sharon, strategic co-ordination between Israel and the US had reached ‘unprecedented dimensions’, and Israeli intelligence officials had given Washington a variety of alarming reports about Iraq’s WMD programmes. As one retired Israeli general later put it, ‘Israeli intelligence was a full partner to the picture presented by American and British intelligence regarding Iraq’s non-conventional capabilities.’ Israeli leaders were deeply distressed when Bush decided to seek Security Council authorisation for war, and even more worried when Saddam agreed to let UN inspectors back in. ‘The campaign against Saddam Hussein is a must,’ Shimon Peres told reporters in September 2002. ‘Inspections and inspectors are good for decent people, but dishonest people can overcome easily inspections and inspectors.’ At the same time, Ehud Barak wrote a New York Times op-ed warning that ‘the greatest risk now lies in inaction.’ His predecessor as prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, published a similar piece in the Wall Street Journal, entitled: ‘The Case for Toppling Saddam’. ‘Today nothing less than dismantling his regime will do,’ he declared. ‘I believe I speak for the overwhelming majority of Israelis in supporting a pre-emptive strike against Saddam’s regime.’ Or as Ha’aretzreported in February 2003, ‘the military and political leadership yearns for war in Iraq.’ As Netanyahu suggested, however, the desire for war was not confined to Israel’s leaders. Apart from Kuwait, which Saddam invaded in 1990, Israel was the only country in the world where both politicians and public favoured war. As the journalist Gideon Levy observed at the time, ‘Israel is the only country in the West whose leaders support the war unreservedly and where no alternative opinion is voiced.’ In fact, Israelis were so gung-ho that their allies in America told them to damp down their rhetoric, or it would look as if the war would be fought on Israel’s behalf. Within the US, the main driving force behind the war was a small band of neo-conservatives, many with ties to Likud. But leaders of the Lobby’s major organisations lent their voices to the campaign. ‘As President Bush attempted to sell the … war in Iraq,’ the Forward reported, ‘America’s most important Jewish organisations rallied as one to his defence. In statement after statement community leaders stressed the need to rid the world of Saddam Hussein and his weapons of mass destruction.’ The editorial goes on to say that ‘concern for Israel’s safety rightfully factored into the deliberations of the main Jewish groups.’ ...... http://www.lrb.co.uk/v28/n06/john-mearsheimer/the-israel-lobby The redirection 3/5/2007 ..... ......—and questions about the intelligence used to make that case—formed the prelude to the invasion of Iraq. Many in Congress have greeted the claims about Iran with wariness; in the Senate on February 14th, Hillary Clinton said, “We have all learned lessons from the conflict in Iraq, and we have to apply those lessons to any allegations that are being raised about Iran. Because, Mr. President, what we are hearing has too familiar a ring and we must be on guard that we never again make decisions on the basis of intelligence that turns out to be faulty.” Haaretz President Peres to bear gifts at own White House ceremony  6/9/12, President Shimon Peres didn't receive his President's Medal of Freedom last month with other award recipients - he will have his own ceremony on Wednesday, June 13, at the White House, one that will end with special performance for about 140 guests. As protocol requires, the president will bring special gifts for his host and wife: a ... ...... Of course, the veteran statesman won't cross the ocean for just one evening, memorable as that evening may be, with a pretty eventful schedule before and after the festive event. He will land in New York on Sunday, grant some interviews and have some meetings. On Monday, he'll move on to Washington, D.C. and meet with top Pentagon officials. On Tuesday, he will take part alongside U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in a special discussion hosted by the Saban Center for Middle East Policy at Brookings Institution. On Thursday, there will be more interviews and meetings with officials - as well as a special reception at the Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren's house. ......
