A video depicting ultra-orthodox Jewish wedding-goers mocking the death of Ali Saad Dawabsheh — an 18-month-old Palestinian baby who was killed in an arson attack in July — has prompted widespread criticism. The video, aired by Israel’s Channel 10 late Wednesday, was filmed at a wedding in Jerusalem three weeks back, Haaretz reported.
“The shocking pictures that were broadcast this evening show the true face of a group that constitutes a danger to Israeli society and to the security of Israel,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, in a statement released Wednesday. Continue reading »
The Pentagon’s Joint Chiefs of Staff has been indirectly providing Syrian military with intelligence on Islamic extremists fearing the Obama administration’s agenda to oust Bashar Assad will engender total chaos in Syria.
Plans to strip Jerusalem residency rights from Palestinians in the wake of recent violence could affect more than 230,000 people, according to reports.
Identity cards give around 350,000 Palestinians in East Jerusalem the right to work and move freely across the city, and are used by residents both inside and outside the separation wall built in 2003.
The Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, has previously hinted at the prospect of taking away residency rights from some Palestinians, seemingly manipulating public fears about a wave of Israeli-Palestinian violence that began around two months ago. Continue reading »
(Excerpted from Big Oil & Their Bankers…Chapter 16: The Mexican Fast Track)
In 1984 – with Vice-President George Bush heading the National Narcotics Border Interdiction Service (NNBIS) – US officials ignored repeated chances to apprehend Pablo Escobar and Jorge Ochoa – kingpins of the Medellin Cartel.
The two were busy shipping cocaine through CIA agent John Hull’s Costa Rican ranch. They fled Colombia after ordering the assassination of Colombian Justice Minister Rodrigo Lara Bonilla and found refuge in CIA employee Noriega’s Panama, where that same year Nicaraguan contra godfather and Mossadegh coup master Vernon Walters was meeting secretly with Colombian President Julio Turbay to launch a top-secret US military base on the Colombian island of San Andres. The Caribbean island quickly became a major smuggling route for Colombian cartel cocaine. Continue reading »
The Israeli prime minister and six other government officials could face arrest should they enter Spain, after a judge from the country issued warrants for their arrest.
Benjamin Netanyahu would be detained by police over a a case against him regarding the famed ‘Freedom Flotilla’ attack that took place in 2010.
Spanish judge Jose de la Mata ordered both the police and guardía to notify him should Netanyahu or one of six other Israeli officials cross Spain’s border. Continue reading »
Posted this just in case you wanted to know how Israel invests U.S. taxpayers money.
The US has offered to increase military aid to Israel by another $1.5 billion per year to ease tensions over the nuclear deal with Iran, media has reported. Defense Secretary Ash Carter is expected to make the offer during next week’s visit to Tel Aviv.The proposed increase would see Israel getting an additional squadron of F-35 fighter jets, funding for research and development of missile defense systems, and ammunition to replenish the stocks used in last year’s bombing of Gaza, Israeli sources told Jerusalem Post.Under the current arrangement, Israel is receiving $3 billion a year, most of which is used to purchase US military hardware such as fighter jets and missile defense systems. Israeli and US officials have been discussing increasing the amount of aid to anywhere between $4.2 and $4.5 billion per year, sources familiar with the talks told the New York Times.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 18 (UPI) — The latest German-built Dolphin-class submarine INS Rahav is en route to Haifa to be delivered to the Israeli Navy.
INS Rahav, given the Hebrew name for Greek god of the seas Poseidon, is one of the Israeli Defense Force’s most expensive weapons. The vessel’s voyage to Haifa comes roughly a decade after the Israeli government placed the order to German defense contractor Howaldtswerke-Deutsche Werft.
The company unveiled the submarine in April 2013, however more work was needed to ensure the vessel was fully operational. Rahav is the fifth submarine of its class to be delivered to the Israeli Navy, The Times of Israel reports. Continue reading »
- Erdogan came to office in 2003 with a policy of “zero problems with neighbors,” but has since led Turkey to problems with most, if not all, of them.
- Turkey’s foreign policy choices and current crises have combined to make Erdogan reach out to Israel for help.
- Israel has weighed the price and found it acceptable: Israel will pay Turkey $20 million; Turkey will expel the Hamas leadership from Istanbul and will buy Israeli gas.
- The restoration of relations with Israel is less a political reconciliation than an admission of the utter bankruptcy of Turkey’s last five years of diplomatic endeavor.
The announcement of the restoration of Israel-Turkish relations should be seen in the context of Turkey having nowhere else to go.
Turkey’s relations with Israel have been strained, to put it mildly, since 2010 when, through a non-profit organization, Turkey funded the 2010 Gaza Flotilla aimed at breaking the Israeli-Egyptian blockade of the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip.
After a bloody confrontation, which ended in the deaths of nine Turks, Turkey demanded that Israel be tried in the International Criminal Court (ICC) and subjected to UN sanction. The ICC ruled that Israel’s actions did not constitute war crimes. In addition, the UN’s Palmer Commission concluded that the blockade of Gaza was legal, and that the IDF commandos who boarded the Mavi Marmara ship had faced “organized and violent resistance from a group of passengers,” and were therefore required to use force for their own protection. The commission, however, did label the commandos’ force “excessive and unreasonable.” Continue reading »
H/t reader L.V.:
“Since I saw this Greg Hunter lash out relentlessly at Catherine Austin Fitts for her daring to criticize the Israeli government even a little bit, I shun any interview where this guy is visible or audible.
The part about Israel and Iran starts around : 12:50
An interesting part about ‘Who is in control?’ starts at 25:10″
It was hard to listen to what comes out of Greg Hunter’s mouth.
There is so much wrong with what he said.
Maybe Greg Hunter should remove the American flag and put the Zionist flag up there in background and replace “USAWatchdog” with “ZionistLapdog”.
Israel is a creation of the Rothschilds, which is why Baron Edmond Benjamin James de Rothschild is known as the “Father of the (Jewish) Settlement” (Avi ha-Yishuv).
They’ve created Israel and they have planned to destroy it in the not too distant future.
If you are living in Israel, leave while you still can.
The Rothschilds funded and controlled Hitler and also Stalin, Roosevelt and Churchill.
WW2 has been a staged event. The Illuminati (= Rothschilds and the 12 other elite families) have built up Germany to burn the world in the hell of war and profit greatly from it.
Hitler, Stalin, Roosevelt and Churchill were all Freemasons and Illuminati puppets and so are Putin and Obama, which is why … We Are On Our Own.
And now the Illuminati have planned the greatest financial collapse in world history, civil war and WW3 (More like a conventional war, without full nuclear exchange. It nevertheless will easily kill much more people than WW1 and WW2 combined.) for us.
That said, here is the interview …

Wonder why Palestinians hate Israel?
Israel stealing Palestine:
How bad was Fukushima blown away? So bad that an entire section of Japan had to have the first three inches of top soil stripped from the ground by workers, countless numbers of which have died, and these people who have died were Japan’s homeless, who were pulled from the streets by the Israeli controlled Yakuza mafia and forced to work until the radiation killed them.

“We have to stay with Israel,” Trump told the Guardian. “Israel has been our one reliable partner in the Middle East. Israel has been terrific to us. Obama has treated Israel horribly. We have to stay with Israel and stay with them big time.”
JTA – Among the expansive field of Republican presidential candidates on display in the party’s first debate Thursday night, Donald Trump may be the most closely connected to the Jewish people.
Trump is from New York, works in professions saturated with Jews and long has been a vocal supporter of Israel. His daughter and two grandchildren are Jewish, the executive vice president of his organization is Jewish — and Trump certainly has chutzpah.
“I have a Jewish daughter. This wasn’t in the plan, but I’m very glad it happened,” Trump said at the event, held in Manhattan. On Israel, he said, “We love Israel. We will fight for Israel 100 percent, 1,000 percent. It will be there forever.” Continue reading »
JERUSALEM — Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet with Donald Trump when the Republican presidential front-runner arrives in Israel later this month, Israeli officials said Wednesday.
On the stump, Trump has complained that the Obama administration “was the worst thing that’s happened to Israel.”
Trump has said a nuclear deal reached with Iran in July could led to another “Holocaust.” Netanyahu has said the nuclear deal exposes Israel to an existential threat by Iran, whose leaders have called for the destruction of Israel.
“Israel was sold out by Kerry and Obama,” Trump said in August, referring to Secretary of State John F. Kerry, the chief U.S. negotiator. “You cannot let Iran have a nuclear weapon. You can’t have it. When they march down the street saying ‘Death to Israel. Death to the United States.’ You can’t let that happen.” Continue reading »
At Kibbutz Merom Golan, just west of the Syrian border, mercury levels plummeted to -8.3°C.
We usually get such low temperatures only in January-February, said Dr. Amos Porat, head of the Israel Meteorological Service’s Climate Department. “They are quite unusual for the beginning of December.”
Other temperature lows on Sunday morning included -3° in the Jezreel Valley’s Nir Haemek and -2° in the Negev community of Sde Boker, according to the IMS data. The Upper Galilee’s Kfar Blum was also unusually cold at -1.7°, as was Safed at 0.8°.
From the article:
“There is no War on Terror. There is a war which is being waged using terrorist proxy groups and they are being used against nation states who are resisting U.S. and Israeli hegemony. And they are also being used as a means of disciplining the work forces in Europe. In a period of mass unemployment and austerity, you now have terrorist attacks being committed by terrorists funded, armed and trained by Western intelligence agencies. There is no such thing as ISIS. ISIS is a creation of the United States.”
Finally, someone tells it like it is.

Are the powers-that-be using crises such as recent events in Paris to drive through a tyrannical agenda?
Rahm Emanuel – Obama’s former Chief of Staff – once famously said “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste – it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before”.
He was not saying anything new. He was simply rehashing something self-evident to those who deal in strategy rather than hysteria, and passing off as his own something said years before by Churchill.
Today, the world is hysterical about the recent serious crisis in Paris. Continue reading »
All this noise about Turkey deflects from the very big Israeli involvement. Convenient.
I covered the illicit oil trade extensively in this post: Carving Turkey After a NATO Roasting- Claims vs Reality
Israel has become the main buyer for oil from ISIS controlled territory, reports “al-Araby al-Jadeed.”
Kurdish and Turkish smugglers are transporting oil from ISIS controlled territory in Syria and Iraq and selling it to Israel, according to several reports in the Arab and Russian media. An estimated 20,000-40,000 barrels of oil are produced daily in ISIS controlled territory generating $1-1.5 million daily profit for the terrorist organization. Continue reading »
It goes without saying that the atrocities of Paris on November 13, 2015 were unspeakable and sickening. But what is not being said in the wake of the incident—what has been ignored by the mass media—is predictably telling and ominous.
As in the wake of 9/11, the people of the world are being provoked, agitated and mobilized; the fear, horror, rage and shock channeled and shaped into wave of collective vengeance and hatred. Hatred towards what and whom?
The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the attacks. But what is the Islamic State? Continue reading »
Netanyahu to ‘punish’ Syrians who attacked ISIL terrorists
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has pledged to punish a group of Syrian Druze individuals in the occupied Golan Heights who attacked injured ISIL Takfiri militants en route to a hospital in Israel.
“We will not allow anyone to take the law into their own hands. We will not allow anyone to disrupt Israeli soldiers in their missions,” Netanyahu said on Tuesday.
He called the incident “very serious” and said those behind it would be located and held to account. Continue reading »
Should Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ever set foot inside Spain, he – and six other current and former Israeli government officials – would be subject to arrest, thanks to a Spanish judge who effectively issued an arrest warrant for the group late last week.
As to be expected, the Israeli Foreign Ministry was less than thrilled, as spokesperson Emmanuel Nachshon responded, according to The Jerusalem Post, “We consider [the judge’s order] to be a provocation. We are working with the Spanish authorities to get it canceled. We hope it will be over soon.” Continue reading »
A religious Zionist cleric from a Jewish settlement on the West Bank told mourners on Saturday during the funeral of an Israeli father and son gunned down by Palestinian terrorists that the attacks in Paris were deserved due to what Europeans “did to our people 70 years ago.”
The quote from Dov Lior, the chief rabbi of the Israeli settlement of Kiryat Arba, was first reported by the Walla! news agency.
“The wicked ones in blood-soaked Europe deserve it for what they did to our people 70 years ago,” Lior said. Continue reading »
– French Jews Warned Friday Morning of ‘Impending Large Terrorist Attack’ (Antiwar, Nov 15, 2015):
Netanyahu: Israel Passed Intelligence to France on Attack
Intelligence in the lead-up to Friday evening’s terrorist attacks in Paris was not nearly so scarce as had initially been indicated, and several nations, including Iraq and Israel, appear to have been passing France intelligence on the matter in the days leading up to the attack.
According to the Times of Israel, French Jewish security officials were informed of an “impending large terrorist attack” in France on Friday morning, There was considerable speculation in the lead-up that France’s Jewish community would be among the targets. Continue reading »
The White House correspondent for French television network Canal+, Laura Haim, reported an interesting tidbit during a live report with MSNBC’s Brian Williams Friday evening. Haim stated that the Central Intelligence Agency director, John O. Brennan, recently met with his counterpart, French intelligence (DGSE) director Bernard Bajolet. The French equivalent of MI6 and CIA is the Direction générale de la sécurité extérieure. See: CIA-GW Intelligence Conference: Panel on The Shared 21st Century International Mission –GW Center for Cyber and Homeland Security 29 Oct 2015 Panel on “The Shared 21st Century International Mission” featuring CIA Director John Brennan, former UK MI6 Chief John Sawers, Director of the French Directorate for External Security Bernard Bajolet, and former Israeli National Security Advisor Yaacov Amidror.

Far-right, former IDF colonel, racist MK Moti Yogev wants family members of Palestinians accused of attacking Jews (true or false) placed in internment camps.
Will death camp recommendations follow? He claims punishing families will deter their children from allegedly harming Jews.
“There are (various) means of deterrence, such as banishing families of murderers to the Judean Desert – something that’s possible by law – and the creation of a type of Holot (internment camp) run by the military police,” he blustered. Continue reading »
