Knesset war report: IDF failed to eliminate Hizbullah rocket threat

"The IDF was supposed to eliminate the threat of Hizbullah's short-range rockets, but in the 34 days of fighting failed to do so… {not only that, but the IDF got it's collective as* kicked} nevertheless, the committee has learned that the lessons derived from the war have been properly assimilated and implemented." {And, Hizbullah has properly assimilated and implemented the lessons derived from the war as well}.

Israel's Peres: Islam is not our enemy

"The Palestinians are not our enemy and neither is Islam," said Peres. "Terror, violence and the alliance between religious fanaticism and nuclear weapons are our – and the world's – enemies."

For once, I agree with Peres. Islam is NOT Israel's enemy, Zionism IS. And, "terror, violence and the alliance between religious fanaticism and nuclear weapons ARE the world's enemies." So, why don't Israel stop murdering and terrorizing the Palestinians, disavow Zionism and destroy their more than 200 nuclear weapons?

The Christians in attendance, acutely aware of the absence of their Palestinian Christian brethren, are probably saying to themselves ~ what self-righteous Zionists hypocrites...

"The slump worsened even more than most analysts expected, heightening fears that the country might be thrust into a recession."

US dollar hammered

"THE US dollar posted its biggest weekly drop against the euro since April 2006 as a slumping housing market and upheaval in Pakistan made US financial assets less attractive to global investors."

Israel to assassinate Haniya: Report

"The Israeli security cabinet has reportedly endorsed a plan to assassinate Palestinian democratically-elected Premier Ismail Haniya."

Israel wants World Conference Against Racism defunded

Religious leaders seek Iran peace

"A coalition of Christian, Jewish and Muslim leaders is calling for American and Iranian authorities to open negotiations and stop planning for war."

Israel's 2007 Victims…Civilians, Gazans

""In 2007, about 35 percent of those killed were civilians who were not taking part in the hostilities when killed," said the B'Tselem organization. The majority of the Palestinians killed were in the besieged Gaza Strip, it noted. The report documented that until December 29, Israeli security forces killed 373 Palestinians, 290 in Gaza Strip and 83 in the West Bank. The victims included 53 minors."

The Post-Bush Regime: A Prognosis

"In order to understand anything about American political affairs, it is necessary to have some understanding of who it is that really makes the decisions behind the scenes, and what their interests are. In this way we have some hope of identifying the hidden agendas being served by government actions and programs, and some hope of identifying the longer-term strategies that are in play."

This is the most important election of our lifetime

"Whichever theory of change Democratic voters nominate, and whichever theory of statis Republican voters select, the choice before Americans next November will be stark. In 2004, many Americans, particularly liberals fearful about a second Bush term, took to calling that election "the most important of my lifetime". And it was, for a while. Now this one is."

Israeli army faces new challenges in training officers

"From the army of the people, the Israeli Defense Forces are gradually becoming the army of half the people," Barak said. "A soldier must not feel that when he goes to battle that in the eyes of part of the society he's a sucker."

Not only are the IDF soldiers "suckers" they are also murderers. Which is the real reason Israel is having trouble finding new recruits. The average Israeli know at some future point in time, the IDF will have to answer for the war crimes and crimes against humanity that are perpetrated against the Palestinians in the name of security for a Jewish state. The "army of half the people" Barak spoke about consists of new Ethiopian and Russian immigrants who, in many cases are not Jewish, but are required to serve in the IDF as a consequence of their immigration to Israel.

Individual privacy under threat in Europe and U.S., report says

"Individual privacy is under threat in the United States and across the European Union as governments introduce sweeping surveillance and information-gathering measures in the name of security and controlling borders, an international rights group has said in a report."

Top economist says America could plunge into recession

"Professor Shiller, co-founder of the respected S&P Case/Shiller house-price index, said: “American real estate values have already lost around $1 trillion [£503 billion]. That could easily increase threefold over the next few years. This is a much bigger issue than sub-prime. We are talking trillions of dollars’ worth of losses.”"

Medical Report of Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto (pdf)

"On 27-12-2007 at approximately 5:35 p.m. a female patient was brought in Accident & Emergency Department of Rawalpindi General Hospital, Rawalpindi. She was brought to the Resuscitation Room and was received by Dr. Aurangzeb Khan and Dr. Saeeda of Surgical Unit-II. The patient was identified as Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto."

Ron Paul Is Right About Pakistan

"Of [all] presidential candidates now in the field from both parties, only Dr. Paul has had the courage to square with the average American voter." He continued, "[Y]ou can safely take one thing to the bank. The person most shaken by Dr. Paul's frankness was Osama bin Laden, who knows that the current status quo in U.S. foreign policy toward the Islamic world is al-Qaeda's one indispensable ally."

Panic Over Pakistan

"Pakistan is not now fated to fall into the hands of radical Islamists. Such an outcome becomes more probable, however, the more determined we are to "do something." As Dr. Paul knows from his experience as a physician, the guiding rule of American foreign policy should be "First, do no harm." Taking "action" – intervening either militarily or politically – will do more harm than good."

Ethnic cleaning goes on and Israel wants you to accept it

“The Palestinians were driven out in 1947-48, even though the official historical record speaks about pressure from the Arab leaders who ostensibly persuaded them to flee. The idea of finding a refuge for the Jewish community, persecuted in Europe and annihilated by Nazism, clashed with a native population who was in a phase of redefining itself. A colonial project that practiced ethnic cleansing, tackling the demographic problem beforehand: the existence of 600 thousand Jews against one million Palestinians. In February 1948, before the Arabs decided to oppose it in a military manner, the Israelis had already expelled over 300 thousand native people.”

Defining Israeli Zionist Racism: Part 1

"Let us not today fling accusations at the murderers. Who are we that we should argue against their hatred? For eight years now they sit in their refugee camps in Gaza, and before their very eyes, we turn into our homestead the land and the villages in which they and their forefathers have lived.” – Moshe Dyan (Israeli Defense Minister during the Israeli-Arab war, 1967), 1953.

Fox News Bars Ron Paul From Presidential Forum

“Given Ron Paul’s support in New Hampshire and his recent historic fundraising success, it is outrageous that Dr. Paul would be excluded,” said Ron Paul 2008 campaign chairman Kent Snyder. “Dr. Paul has consistently polled higher in New Hampshire than some of the other candidates who have been invited.”

Why is Fox "news" excluding Ron Paul? The answer is simple ~ he doesn't advocate placing the interests of Isreal over the interests of America - any more questions?

Ron Paul, Our Last Hope, Won’t Be Allowed To Win! Bush Regime Further Isolates Concerned Americans

"As mentioned, Congressman and physician Ron Paul is America’s last hope, both in terms of validating our constitutional form of government and in once again providing measurable participation by the people in their own governance. But Paul stands in defiant opposition to all that has been planned and prepared for US by The Establishment. It is both futile and naive to believe the latter will simply stand aside for this, the most serious threat since their recently launched and rapidly deployed hijacking of our government via the Bush and Clinton crime families in the last 20 years."

Assassinations Plague S. Asian Politics

"The killing of former Pakistani premier Benazir Bhutto marks yet another chapter in the dark history of political assassinations in South Asia and shows violence has become entrenched in the region's political culture."

A bad investment

"The time is ripe for Israel to begin making repayments to the Palestinians, not to amass more bad debts in order to expand settlements."

Democracy: an existential threat?

"A single state in historic Palestine, based on equality, is the most promising alternative to the already dead two-state dogma."

Bin Laden Issues Warning on Iraq, Israel

This undated photo shows al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan. bin Laden will release a new Internet message that focuses on Iraq and an al-Qaida linked insurgent group, a terrorism monitoring group said Thursday, Dec. 27, 2007. (AP Photo)

"Osama bin Laden warned Iraq's Sunni Arabs against fighting al-Qaida and vowed to expand the terror group's holy war to Israel in a new audiotape Saturday, threatening "blood for blood, destruction for destruction.""

"Blood for blood, destruction for destruction." That sounds very similar to "an eye for an eye," a doctrine of Judaism and a policy of Israel. So, what's the problem?

Gaza: Smother until surrender

"How have things in Gaza changed over the past 12 months? Sadly, there are no rosy reflections to be found here. Things were bad in Gaza this year. Very bad. Whether looked at from a political or purely humanitarian perspective, it's difficult to see the upside where there is such an orchestrated global drive to maintain the status quo: smother until surrender."

U.S. funds to Israel to stop human trafficking, white slavery, and prostitution

"The U.S. State Department allocated funds to three Israeli programs aimed at stemming trafficking in humans. The funding was announced Thursday as part of the annual package targeting international trafficking in workers and prostitutes."

Wonder why we never hear about any of this on the US main-stream media?

Pope's exorcist squads will wage war on Satan

Satanism on the rise: Pope Benedict has unveiled plans to set up specialist exorcism squads

"The Vatican is particularly concerned that young people are being exposed to the influence of Satanic sects through rock music and the Internet."

Okay, let's see ~ we've had a "war on poverty," a "war on drugs" and a "war on terror." Now we have a "war on Satan." Any idea where the Pope and his gang plan to start?

Israeli Military Clears Itself of Cluster Bomb Misuse in Lebanon

The Mines Advisory Group detonates 47 cluster bombs in Al-Malkiyye, south Lebanon. [Date picture taken: 09/01/2006]

"Israel's military advocate-general, Brig-Gen Avihai Mendelblit, has said the military's use of cluster munitions during the conflict in Lebanon in 2006 was in accordance with international humanitarian law. Human rights groups and the UN had previously condemned the use of the bombs."

Israel :: Humanitarian Law ~ that's an oxymoron.

America has lost her "goodness:" from Iraq to immigration, "vision" as a leader nation has become lost

Little boy in Sadr City, Baghdad, Iraq 2005-07-24. Image Credit CPT.

"We have created five million Iraqi orphans since our illegal attack and invasion of Iraq nearly five years ago. That is a staggering fact; but, to me, even more amazing is that the majority of the God-loving, church-going, prayer-believing people in this country apparently do not give a tinker's damn."

The inevitable regression of a "Judeo-Christian" Nation that has become more "Judeo" than "Christian."

Saudi Arabia arms sale may spark US Congress battle

“You have the makings of a resolution of disapproval,” said Rep. Mark Kirk, an Illinois Republican pushing for measures to curb what he considers the JDAM’s risk to Israel and US forces in the region. Kirk is a naval reservist who serves a weekend a month as deputy director of intelligence in the National Military Command Centre at the Pentagon. In a telephone interview on Wednesday, he said he was waiting for the administration to propose measures “to prevent these systems from ever being a threat to Americans or Israel.”

If the Saudis don't buy them from the US they will buy them from Russia. So, the US is the loser in the end. Not only in terms of dollars but also in terms of the loss of a longtime and strategically important ally that is, even now, going to great lengths to help stablize the US dollar by maintaining the dollar peg at great costs to her own economy. This is a perfect example of how the Zionists and Israel Firsters in the US Congress are "cutting off the nose of the US to spite her face." Always, Israel first ~ regardless of the repercussions on Washington and the American people.

Syria says Israel's aura of invincibility is long gone

"A senior Syrian official warned Israel on Thursday that its army had lost its aura of invincibility since its better-armed troops failed to overpower Hizbullah during the summer war of 2006. "The [Israeli] superiority did not lead to surrender. And Syria has more weapons than Hizbullah," Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad told the Financial Times Deutschland."

Hindus burn more churches in India

"The trouble between the communities was reportedly sparked after Hindu right-wing organisations objected to plans by local Christian groups to celebrate Christmas in a big way. About 100,000 of Khandamal’s 650,000 populations are Christians while most of the rest are Hindus."

I wonder how "big" a Christmas celebration the Christians wanted to hold?

Ruling Against Muslim Group Is Overturned

"A federal appeals court in Chicago overturned a $156 million jury award against a former Muslim charity once billed as the nation's largest and several other defendants yesterday, saying that the plaintiffs failed to prove that financial contributions to a Palestinian terrorist group played a direct role in the slaying of an American teenager in Israel."

Looks like the federal appeals court judge wasn't a Zionist. Seems that most of these cases are initially decided by Zionist judges and later overturned on appeal.

Balance of Power Is Continuing to Shift From the US

"This year, Time, perhaps disappointed by the impact that "You" seemed to have on our lives, decided to adopt a the traditional approach, and has selected a real person as its annual shaper of destiny – Russian President Vladimir Putin."

Use of fake passports on the rise

"No one can say for sure how many people enter the United States every year with fraudulent papers. But, according to the Department of Homeland Security, the number of such documents intercepted is on the rise, from 23,677 in fiscal year 2005 to 30,799 in fiscal year 2007."

Fake passports? Better triple the number of immigration inspectors for those flights out of Tel Aviv. The tone of this article would lead one to falsely conclude that "Islamic terrorists" are trying to enter the US with fraudulent passports when in actuality traveling with counterfeit passports has long been a modus operandi of the Israeli Mossad.

Obama: Biracial candidate walks own fine line

"Much of Mr. Obama’s success as a politician has come from walking a fine line — as an independent Democrat and a progressive in a state dominated by the party organization and the political machine, and as a biracial American whose political ambitions require that he appeal to whites while still satisfying the hopes and expectations of blacks."

Pakistan says sunroof, not bomb or bullets, killed Bhutto

"Pakistan's interior ministry said Friday that Benazir Bhutto was killed after smashing her head on her car's sunroof while trying to duck, and that no bullet or shrapnel was found inside her."

U.S. Brokered Bhutto's Return to Pakistan

"For Benazir Bhutto, the decision to return to Pakistan was sealed during a telephone call from Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice just a week before Bhutto flew home in October. The call culminated more than a year of secret diplomacy -- and came only when it became clear that the heir to Pakistan's most powerful political dynasty was the only one who could bail out Washington's key ally in the battle against terrorism."

Once again, the not so invisible hand of America comes to light. Condoleezza had to know that Bhutto's return to Pakistan would place her in grave danger. Signing Bhutto's condolence book is the least she can do. If Condi really wanted to extend her condolences she should call Bhutto's husband and three children and explain to them why she convinced Benazir to return to Pakistan as a counter-weight to President Musharraf.

McCain-Lieberman - the dream team of right-wing Jews

"In a campaign that they say is filled with adulterers, fundamentalists, crooks, bigots and wildcards, the GOP senator from Arizona is the only candidate both men say they could endorse -- especially if his running mate were Senator Joe Lieberman, the Sabbath-observant Democrat-turned-Independent who crossed party lines last week to endorse the Republican war hero."

Pakistan's Fractured Polity: Who Killed Bhutto?

Supporters prepared the grave of Benazir Bhutto, who was laid to rest next to the body of her father, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, in the family’s ancestral graveyard.

"The death of former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto is being mourned by millions of Pakistanis. She had a profound public base despite staying out of her country for nearly a decade and being dogged by corruption and nepotism charges. Her death, however, should not come as a surprise at all. For the past three decades, Pakistan has been turning into a ‘Jihad factory' under the guidance of the US and other Western powers. After 9/11 when Pakistan launched a war on its own people in the name of ‘War on terror', it was not uncanny to predict that the Jihadis who were nourished previously would turn against their old allies; the politicians and the military and the innocent people of Pakistan would get caught and entangled as a collateral."

Unholy dust-up at Nativity church

Just hours after "peace" meeting: IDF kills body guard of chief Palestinian negotiator Qureia

"Ahmed Qureia, chief Palestinian negotiator, attended an Israeli-Palestinian summit Thursday in Jerusalem, in which Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas also took part. Just hours later, PA sources reported IDF military activity in Bitunia, a town south of Ramallah. The IDF soldiers saw Mu'atasam Sharif al-Mahdi, a member of Fatah and the Presidential Guard, and opened fire on him, apparently because of his handgun."

Creeping Fascism: Lessons From the Past

"It has been two years since top New York Times officials decided to let the rest of us in on the fact that the George W. Bush administration had been eavesdropping on American citizens without the court warrants required by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) of 1978. The Times had learned of this well before the election in 2004 and acquiesced to White House entreaties to suppress the damaging information."

Election '08: The Collapse of the 'Frontrunners'

"The media is now telling us that the Iraq war is no big deal, and isn't really an issue anymore, and yet the consequences of that war are defining the political landscape even as they speak. You'll remember that opponents of the invasion predicted that war with Iraq would destabilize the entire region and ripple outward from Baghdad – and we are seeing that now in the turmoil ripping apart Pakistan, as the assassination of Benazir Bhutto underscores the fragility of an ostensibly pro-US regime that has access to nuclear weapons."

Ron Paul Moves Up Six Points in Iowa Poll by American Research Group

"The latest scientific poll from American Research Group shows that Ron Paul's support in Iowa over the past four days has more than doubled from 4% to 10%. Is this the beginning of Paul's sprint to the finish line?"

CIA man 'can take White House down'

"Former head of the CIA's clandestine service Jose Rodriguez claims he can take the White House down over a torture cover-up scandal."

CIA Torture and other War Crimes

"Ethically, torture degrades the country that permits it, the organization that carries it out and the individuals who perform it. Doctors are not present during torture as it would violate the Hippocratic Oath, so it is up to the torturer to decide how far to go. If a victim dies while being interrogated by torture, as has happened a number of times in both Afghanistan and Iraq, it is both a war crime and murder."

What Does Freedom Really Mean?

"Few Americans understand that all government action is inherently coercive. If nothing else, government action requires taxes. If taxes were freely paid, they wouldn’t be called taxes, they’d be called donations. If we intend to use the word freedom in an honest way, we should have the simple integrity to give it real meaning: Freedom is living without government coercion. So when a politician talks about freedom for this group or that, ask yourself whether he is advocating more government action or less."

Christians, Hindus clash again in India

A bus set on fire by protestors goes up in flames at Baliguda in Phulbani district in Orissa state, India, Wednesday, Dec. 26, 2007.

(AP Photo)

"Hindu extremists burned down the house of a prominent Christian politician in eastern India Thursday, officials said, as violence by gangs from both sides continued despite a curfew imposed after two days of attacks against Christians by Hindu hard-liners."

Based on the article, it sounds like the "extremist" Hindus just woke up one morning and decided to attack the Christians for no reason...

Airport profilers: They're watching your expressions

Della Winn, a TSA behavioral detection officer, watches over passengers as they approach a security checkpoint at Sea-Tac International Airport on Friday.

"Since January 2006, behavior-detection officers have referred about 70,000 people for secondary screening, Maccario said. Of those, about 600 to 700 were arrested on a variety of charges, including possession of drugs, weapons violations and outstanding warrants."

But no terrorists...

Egypt: Israeli lobby harms US relations

"The latest months have seen the Israeli lobby's efforts to harm Egypt's interests with the Congress," Ahmed Aboul Gheit told reporters. "The Israeli lobby inside the (U.S.) Congress was behind some positions adopted by Congress and the Israeli media campaign in the last few months falls within this trend."

Egypt can't just now have figured this out ~ a major objective of The Lobby is to have every Arab and Muslim country pissed off with the United States. And, they're doing a very good job of it.

Iranian Jews say republic safe for them

Dr. Ciamak Morsathegh, head of the Tehran Jewish Committee, looks at an x-ray at the Sapir Charity Hospital, owned by the Iranian Jewish community, he heads, in Tehran, Iran, Wednesday, Dec. 26, 2007. Morsathegh rejected as a 'misinformation campaign'against Iran, reports that 40 Iranian Jews immigrated to Israel and left behind their lives in Iran, saying hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's policies has not endangered the life of Jews in Iran nor forced them to leave home. A joint statement signed by Morsathegh and Morris Motamed, the only Jewish lawmaker in the Iranian parliament, also said Iranian Jews have never been part of any 'organized immigration' to Israel.(AP Photo/Vahid Salemi)

"A top Jewish community leader in Iran on Wednesday described the recent immigration of 40 Iranian Jews to Israel as a "misinformation campaign" and insisted that Jews living in the Islamic Republic were not endangered by the hard-line policies of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad."

Based on the totality of the caption under the above picture, I doubt if Dr. Ciamak Morsathegh actually said President Ahmadinejad' policies were "hard-line." But, this is about as good as it gets from the Zionist controlled main-stream media in America.

Top Ten Myths about Iraq 2007

Bush’s Tyranny Thwarted — For Now

"The news media seemed too preoccupied with Paris Hilton’s detention to notice, but a U.S. appeals court in June struck a major blow for liberty. A three-judge panel of the U.S. Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the Bush administration may not declare a U.S. resident — whether a citizen or not — an “enemy combatant,” throw him in a military prison, and hold him without charge indefinitely — all without judicial review. Try him in the civilian courts or let him go, the judges said."

The torture tape fingering Bush as a war criminal

"Any reasonable person examining all the evidence we have - without any bias - would conclude that the overwhelming likelihood is that the president of the United States authorised illegal torture of a prisoner and that the evidence of the crime was subsequently illegally destroyed."

Ron Paul's followers aim to stun the pundits

"His message is so strong," said Justin Stout, 24, who was joined by a trio of other Paul supporters to brave the chill and drizzle on a recent evening to wave Paul signs at traffic along Ga. 5 in Douglasville. "His message of individual liberty is so strong. But we know we have to do this because the media doesn't seem to be giving us attention. He has to raise $6 million to get on the news."

Abbas wants Israeli settlement freeze at summit

"Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas will demand Israel commit to a freeze on all settlement construction at a peace summit Thursday, the first since the two sides agreed to resume peace talks at a U.S.-sponsored conference last month."

Israel freeze all settlement construction? Are you serious? Abbas, don't hold your breathe. Israel don't want peace, Israel want Palestine!

Bush Seeks to Restore Tattered U.S. Image With Heavy '08 Travel

U.S. President George W. Bush departs the White House in Washington, aboard Marine 1 on Saturday, October 6, 2007. Credit: Ron Sachs / Pool via Bloomberg News

"President George W. Bush's diplomatic passport will acquire a slew of new country stamps during his final year in office as he tries to rebuild the U.S.'s international standing and create a foreign-policy legacy beyond Iraq."

Bush is going to restore America's image ~ that even sounds ridiculous. The President is once again about to show the world how absolutely detached from reality and mentally deranged he really is. Clearly, Bush has never heard the saying, "when you're in a hold over your head the first thing you do is stop digging." For those very few world leaders who are not already convinced that Bush is a Zionist controlled puppet and world class idiot, this trip should remove all doubt.

Jewish return to Israel hits 20-year low

"The Israeli government says Jewish immigration to Israel has fallen to its lowest level in 20 years, with fewer than 20,000 Jews arriving in 2007."

Based on the above, even Jews think Israel is a "shitty little country."

Israel may declare intention to evacuate outposts ahead of Bush's visit

"Israel may declare its intention to evacuate several illegal outposts during US President George W. Bush's visit in the country two weeks from now."

Talk is cheap. If you really want to impress you need to do more than just "declare your intention.

IDF scales back Bethlehem night ops for Christmas

"The IDF began scaling back its operations in Bethlehem and the city's outlying areas on Sunday ahead of the expected arrival of more than 60,000 Christian pilgrims to the city in the next few days to participate in Christmas celebrations."

That's mighty Jewish of them. Actually, they don't want the Christians who are visiting from the West to see up close and personal how they murder their Palestinian Christian brethren and innocent Palestinian women and children. That could be bad for public relations and they need Christian Zionists ~ those useful idiots like John Hagee who claim that Israel is the "apple of God's eye."

Ron Paul vs. the Dirty Tricksters

"Paul-haters on the Right and the Left unite in a common cause."

Sunday, December 23, 2007

Ron Paul Shines on Meet the Press

"My belief that DR. Paul is the man for our times has just been confirmed. He was able to answer every single, stupid attack that has been launched against him the past few weeks. For this, we should thank Tim Russert, even though I do not believe he did it for the betterment of the Revolution."

Israel tells Israeli Arabs it time to stop mourning the Nakba (the founding of Israel)

"The celebrations planned to mark Israel's 60th Independence Day have become, as expected, a source of confrontation between the Jewish community, which seeks to foster patriotic feelings and build bridges between its divided populations, and the Palestinian-Israeli community, whose national tragedy it recalls. It is an exact reenactment of the confrontation that occurred 10 years ago, when the celebration of the state's jubilee served as a catalyst and focal point for feelings of mourning and protest, and for designating Nakba Day, which, together with Land Day, became a central date on the Palestinian calendar."

The hypocrisy of the Zionists knows no bounds. The Jews have made the so called "holocaust" into an industry and "holocaust victims" have been pimped like $2 whores for nearly half a century. It's okay for Zionists to run around yelling "never again" to anyone who will listen but Palestinians are supposed to just forget the worst atrocity perpetrated against a people since the destruction of the Native Americans and the African Slave trade.

Racial Undercurrent Is Seen in Clinton Campaign

"It has unfolded mostly under the radar. But an important development in the 2008 Democratic battle may be the building backlash among African Americans over comments from associates of Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton that could be construed as jabs at Sen. Barack Obama's race."

When the rubber hits the road, it always come down to race in America.

"A Syrian member of parliament thought to be familiar with the thinking of President Bashar al-Assad is quoted in the London-based pan-Arab daily newspaper Al-Quds al-Arabi on Saturday as saying that Syria could strike Israel's nuclear reactor in Dimona as retaliation for any future violations of Syrian sovereignty."

Yes, and all IAF bases, all IAF/IDF and civilian air craft landing zones, fuel depots, and naval facilities. You see, when you're the size of Israel, having a "qualitative military advantage" doesn't give you much of an advantage.

Olmert: War is waging in southern Israel

"Despite weekend talk of ceasefire, PM resolutely rejects possibility of negotiations with Hamas, calls events in Gaza strip ‘war between IDF and terror groups’, vows IDF operations will continue."

Interesting war ~ only Palestinians are dying.

IAF officer suspected of shoplifting a 99-cent voltage converter at US army base

"A captain in the Israeli Air Force has been arrested for attempted theft during an official visit to a military base in Texas, according to a report aired by Channel 10 over the weekend."

Probably figured no one would ever suspect him since Israelis and Jews are generally above suspicion in America ~ he was wrong.

Gates: Iran strike Washington tragedy

"Defense Secretary Robert Gates has said bombing Iran's nuclear sites would be a catastrophic strategic blunder for the White House."

Making "catastrophic strategic blunders" hasn't stopped Bush in the past ~ so, let's not hold our breathes on this one.

Hoover Planned Mass Jailing in 1950

"A newly declassified document shows that J. Edgar Hoover, the longtime director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, had a plan to suspend habeas corpus and imprison some 12,000 Americans he suspected of disloyalty."

The end of Israel?

"The day will come when the two-state solution collapses, and we face a South African-style struggle for equal voting rights. As soon as that happens, the state of Israel is finished."

New Israeli settlement plans unveiled on eve of peace talks

"Israel plans to enlarge two settlements in occupied Palestinian territory next year, a peace group said on Sunday, on the eve of the latest round of peace negotiations between the two sides."

Interesting how the Zionist Entity has convinced the world that Palestinians want to "wipe it off the map," when in reality it's Palestine that's disappearing.

O little (divided) town of Bethlehem

""It's disgusting," he says. "We are in a chicken cage." For Mr Salsaa, who last managed to get a permit, as part of a church delegation, to visit Jerusalem a year ago, it is one of several factors behind Bethlehem's marked economic decline."

Meet the Press with Tim Russert: A Big Weekend for Ron Paul

"Forget the money bombs and all the fundraising for now, this is the big weekend for Ron Paul and it has nothing to do with cash or campaign fundraising efforts. He finally has broken through and will appear on the mainstream number one Sunday morning talk show 'Meet the Press' with host Tim Russert. This is the key point in the campaign so far, he has to deliver a great performance."

"Israeli guards beat five demonstrators, including one dressed as Father Christmas, during a protest on Friday against Israel's separation barrier in the West Bank, organisers said."

Santa don't even rate a pass...

IDF Commander defends carjacking and murder of unarmed Palestinian

"First Lieutenant Y' has now been incarcerated for five months, accused of a litany of crimes, including kidnapping a taxi driver and binding his hands and feet. In his testimony at the Jaffa Military Court, the officer gave his version of events. "I am neither a criminal nor a fanatic, there are no violations on my record," he declared."

Peres apologizes for 1956 massacre of Arab civilians

"On October 29, 1956, a Border Police platoon shot and killed 48 unarmed Arab civilians in the village of Kafr Kassem east of Petah Tikva because the residents were unknowingly in violation of a curfew imposed on the village due to the onset of the Sinai Campaign."

Just one massacre among many that Israel continues to perpetrate.

"The FBI is embarking on a $1 billion project to build the world's largest computer database of biometrics to give the government more ways to identify people at home and abroad, the Washington Post reported on Friday."

Tent city in suburbs is cost of home crisis

"Between railroad tracks and beneath the roar of departing planes sits "tent city," a terminus for homeless people. It is not, as might be expected, in a blighted city center, but in the once-booming suburbia of Southern California."

Belgium releases 14 terror suspects

A Palestinian Girl's Plight Shows Two Faces of Israel

Maria Aman, 6, was paralyzed by an Israeli missile targeting a gunman in Gaza City last year. Now she lives in Jerusalem, supported by Israel.

In 2006, as a taxi carrying her family in downtown Gaza City passed a car carrying a leader of the armed Islamic Jihad organization, two Israeli missiles fired from a helicopter far above slammed into both vehicles. Her spine was virtually severed. Her mother, older brother, grandmother and uncle were killed.

Another Zionist Controlled Media spin job of an Israeli atrocity. If Israel was such a moral and concerned nation and the IDF such a disciplined army, "two Israeli missiles" would not have been "fired from a helicopter" into a crowd of unarmed and innocent people ~ regardless of the intended target. Maria's mother, older brother, grandmother, and uncle were all killed ~ unfortunate collateral damage no doubt. Also, notice how Maria's pending deportation by God's Chosen People is being played down. Maria had to petition the Israeli courts to stay in Israel and she may yet be deported. What murdering hypocrites...

Israel: US report on Iran may spark war

"Israel's public security minister warned Saturday that a U.S. intelligence report that said Iran is no longer developing nuclear arms could lead to a regional war that would threaten the Jewish state."

Okay, now please provide details on just how an Iran WITHOUT nuclear weapons will spark a regional war...

Judge urged not to ask about CIA tapes

"The Bush administration told a federal judge it was not obligated to preserve videotapes of CIA interrogations of suspected terrorists and urged the court not to look into the tapes' destruction."

Can you say dictatorship? I knew you could...

Two Israeli Banks Accused of Sending Millions of Dollars to Hamas Entities

"Two of Israel’s biggest banks are mired in a court battle over allegations that they conducted transactions that ultimately benefited Hamas and its affiliates."

Tel Aviv rocked

"A crisis meeting indicates that Israel faces a strategic emergency following a US intelligence report that sees no threat in Iran, writes Saleh Al-Naami ."

Russia and Iran agree on nuclear deal

"Speaking shortly before the Russian and Iranian foreign ministers were scheduled to meet in Moscow, Atomstroieksport president Sergei Shmatko announced that the two countries had agreed to complete building the $1bn (£490m) plant at Bushehr."

Huckabee criticizes Bush's "arrogant bunker mentality."

"Mike Huckabee, who has joked about his lack of foreign policy experience, is criticizing the Bush administration's efforts, denouncing a go-it-alone "arrogant bunker mentality" and questioning decisions on Iraq."

China leaves the US and India trailing

"In an audacious swoop, China has beaten off rivals from the US, Canada and Russia to secure a US$4 billion copper project in Afghanistan, leaving India to build hospitals and schools. And this week, China Petroleum Corporation sealed a $2 billion oil and gas development project in Iran, just as Delhi - at Washington's bidding - slapped banking restrictions on Tehran."

Emotional hearing about thousands of suicidal veterans

"More than 100,000 of the 750,000 veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan have sought treatment for mental problems from the Department of Veterans Affairs, an official said during a hearing on suicides."

Reconciling Fascism with Reality

"A fascist government is one which is terminally ill with an incurable cancer. In a fascist society this system of mutual balance has completely and utterly collapsed to the point where government is not functioning as the representative of the people, but the security guard for the corporate interests. So if “experts” can throw around the word “Islamofacism”, let me make up a term “Corpofascism.”"

Congress authorizes war funds and sends bill to Bush

"The Democratic-led Congress authorized more Iraq war spending on Friday, sending President George W. Bush a defense bill requiring no change in strategy after failing again to impose a timetable for U.S. troop withdrawals."

Think Again: The Nth Time is Farce: Neocons Attack the NIE, Yet Again

"Bush’s neoconservative allies in the media have proven far more aggressive than the president. Their criticisms of the NIE took two basic approaches: one set of critics have attacked U.S. intelligence agencies for “politicizing” the report, which is code for reaching conclusions that are inconsistent with neoconservative ambitions; the second set of commentators has ascribed all kinds of Bush-hating psychological motives to the career intelligence officers who created the report."

Sealed off by Israel, Gaza reduced to beggary

Hala Abu Saif's 1st-grade class is seen at the Atfaluna Society for Deaf Children in Gaza. The school ran out of hearing-aid batteries in September due to Israeli import restricitions. Now thye rely solely on sign language, which makes it difficiult, if not impossible, to acquire the spoken language.

"This punishing seal has reduced Gaza, a territory of almost 1.5 million people, to beggar status, unable to maintain an effective public health system, administer public schools or preserve the traditional pleasures of everyday life by the sea."

And the world watches in silence as "God's Chosen People" slowly strangle to death over 1.4 million Palestinians.

Huckaboom and Hillabust

"Sen. Hillary Clinton’s campaign is teetering on the brink, no matter what the meaningless national horserace numbers say. The notion that she has a post-Iowa “firewall” in New Hampshire is a fantasy, and she is in danger of losing all four early contests, including Nevada and South Carolina – probably to Sen. Barack Obama, who is now, in momentum terms, the Democratic frontrunner."

Have the wheels come off of Hillary's bandwagon?

"Barack Obama has come from behind to turn the Democratic presidential race in New Hampshire into a toss-up, according to a new Monitor opinion poll. The results - which show Obama with a one-point edge over Hillary Clinton - mirror other polls released this week, indicating that Clinton's once-imposing lead has evaporated in the run-up to New Hampshire's Jan. 8 primary."
