Waiting for War: The Siege on the People of Gaza Tightens

Palestine: Gaza Apartheid Wall, Largest Open Air Prison.

  • Waiting for War: The Siege on the People of Gaza Tightens
    by Shireen al-Akkah, Translated by Salma Khalifa, https://www.madamasr.com/en
    As negotiations, meetings and mediations are underway to prevent the Palestinian reconciliation talks from collapsing, the lives of those living under siege in Gaza play out under very different concerns from those central to political groups’ discussions of technical details.

    Israel’s blockade coupled with the sanctions the Palestinian Authority has imposed to extract political compliance from Hamas have left many Gazans watching high politics unfold from below. And as they watch, many are also left waiting for medical treatment, stranded with no means to resume studies, looking for ways to renew expired documents and residency permits, or working toward immigration.

    A visit to the central Gaza City neighborhood of Rimal begins to paint a picture of this other reality. Financial aid applicants are taking up the better part of the most lively street in the entire strip.

    The poverty rate in Gaza sits at 65 percent, and unemployment is up to 47 percent from 41.7 percent two years ago, according to figures produced by the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics cited in a July 2017 Palestinian Center for Human Rights report.

    Palestinian media projections and daily references in the Israeli media frame Israel as preparing to wage war in Gaza.

    This comes as Israeli land, air and naval combat units have been conducting military exercises. The headquarters of most Palestinian factions have been notably evacuated, and police and security checkpoints have been deployed throughout the Gaza strip, all in preparation for any security emergencies. The state of the military alert is evident on the streets.

    Here in Gaza, death does not seem like the most tragic fate — sections of the population have been fading away on a daily basis due to the dire living conditions, not to mention the psychological distress as war has become the foremost topic of discussion among the public. Everyone waits in anticipation. Perhaps the coming days will usher in events that will change the situation drastically.

The Debate: Damascus Slams Turkey’s Offensive as Violation of Syria’s Sovereignty

  • PressTV Published on Feb 21, 2018
    Even though Syria is a sovereign country, it’s land and air is being violated. Coming on the heels of Israeli airstrikes and a US permanent presence in Northern Syria, now Turkey has executed an operation that includes Afrin, to rid it from what it calls the YPG terrorists, without the approval of the Syrian government. It even shelled Syrian govt. forces when they tried to enter the area. What are the Syria forces goal here, and Turkey for that matter? And why is the US not helping Turkey in their fight against the Kurds, even though it claims Turkey is its ally?

US Military Establishment Risking WWIII to Maintain Hegemony: Analyst

  • US Military Establishment Risking WWIII to Maintain Hegemony: Analyst
    by http://www.presstv.com/
    The United States military establishment is risking the Third World War in order to maintain American hegemony, a political analyst says.

    James Jatras, a former Senate foreign policy adviser in Washington, made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Tuesday while commenting on a report which says the United States wants Russia to get used to American military presence on its doorsteps in the Black Sea. As part of its plans to counter what it calls “the Russian aggression,” the US has recently deployed two warships to the Black Sea.

    The US Navy announced Saturday that Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Carney had joined USS Ross, another warship of the same family, in the international waters near Russian territories.

    It has now turned out that the decision is part of Washington’s efforts to “desensitize Russia” to the US military presence in the Black Sea, which separates Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Western Asia, CNN reported Monday night, quoting an unnamed US military official.

Trump’s New Plan for Mideast Peace Doomed to Failure: Palestinian Analysts

  • Trump’s New Plan for Mideast Peace Doomed to Failure: Palestinian Analysts
    by Emad Drimly, http://www.xinhuanet.com/english/newchina/index.htm
    GAZA, Feb. 20 (Xinhua) — Palestinian analysts believe that U.S. President Donald Trump’s new plan for the Middle East peace, which is supposed to be revealed in the coming weeks, would not put an end to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

    They argued that Trump’s plan means to undermine the Palestinian cause rather than reaching a just settlement to the conflict.

    Last week, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said in Jordan that the work on formulating a new plan for achieving peace in the Middle East region is “fairly well advanced.” He said the decision taken on Jerusalem was “about the United States and our recognition of Jerusalem and where we choose to place our embassy.” He added that the decision “does not preclude a two-state solution if that is the solution the parties seek.”

    Despite global opposition, Trump fulfilled in December one of his major campaign promises by recognizing the disputed city of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and ordered to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

    Israel took over East Jerusalem in the 1967 war and later declared the united city of Jerusalem as its eternal capital, while the Palestinians hope to create a future independent state with East Jerusalem as its capital.

    “Washington’s policies in the Middle East have been proven to be a big failure,” Hani al-Masri, director of the Ramallah-based Masarat Center for Studies Research, told Xinhua. The features of the U.S. plan, although not officially put forward, are clear after being presented by U.S. officials to several Arab and international parties.

    “The American plan includes the establishment of a new ‘city of Jerusalem’ for the Palestinians, a humanitarian solution for the refugees and keeping borders and settlements under Israeli control,” he said. The future of Jewish settlements will be negotiated later after the establishment of a “Palestinian state” in about half of the West Bank and the entire Gaza Strip, al-Masri said.

    “Any Palestinian role in this plan will definitely mean the end of the Palestinian cause,” al-Masri said, stressing that this plan cannot come to reality without a Palestinian okay.

    Recently, Palestinian officials announced in many occasions that the U.S. policies in the region threaten security and stability and cannot achieve peace in the Middle East. They consider that the dangerous policies of U.S. administration over Jerusalem, the refugee issue, the 1967 borders and settlements are contrary to the prospects for peace, threatening to destabilize the entire region and ending any hopes of a political settlement.

Finkelstein(Jew) on Gaza: Who Or What Has a Right to Exist? The Genocide & Ethnic Cleansing of Palestinians by Zionist Israel

Genocide and Ethnic Cleansing by Zionist ‘666’ Israel, the Satanic counterfeit.

Revelation 2:9 – …. and I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.

  • Emphasis mine:
  • Finkelstein(Jew) on Gaza: Who Or What Has a Right to Exist? The Genocide & Ethnic Cleansing of Palestinians by Zionist Israel
    by JUDITH DEUTSCH, https://www.counterpunch.org/
    Gaza: An Inquest into its Martyrdom (
    Verso, 2018),  is an extraordinary book.   It is also a difficult book to read.   In his preface, Norman Finkelstein writes that this work “has been a painstaking, fastidious undertaking born of a visceral detestation of falsehood, in particular when it is put in the service of power and human life hangs in the balance.”  He writes that “Gaza is about a Big Lie composed of a thousand, often seemingly abstruse and arcane, little lies. The objective of this book is to refute that Big Lie by exposing each of the little lies.”  His meticulous inquest into Israel’s atrocities and the moral depravity within humanitarian institutions demands answers about who or what has a right to exist.


    The book primarily investigates the official reports about Operation Cast Lead (2008-09), the Mavi Marmara (2010), and Operation Protective Edge (2014).  Finkelstein attributes these assaults in part to Israel’s intention to prove its deterrence capacity after its defeat by Hezbollah in 2006.  A pattern emerges of Israel’s surreptitious provocations that conceal its own aggression, use of disproportionate military force and  targeting of civilians,  specious legality, and lies that exonerate Israel and permit ever-increasing brutality.    The Dahiya doctrine refers to Israel’s military strategy of acting immediately, decisively, and with disproportionate force.  Dahiya is a suburb of Beirut that was flattened by Israel in the 2006 war.

    Operation Cast Lead was preceded by Israeli assaults that destroyed Gaza’s infrastructure, cruelly named 2004 Operation Rainbow, 2004 Operation Days of Penitence, 2006 Operation Summer Rains and Autumn Clouds, 2008 Operation Hot Winter.  After the democratic election of Hamas in 2005, Israel imposed a punishing blockade which UN Special Rapporteur John Dugard  noted was the first time an occupied people was subject to sanctions and that were a violation of major UN Security Council and General Assembly resolutions and a ruling by the International Court of Justice.   Israel attacked a civilian population imprisoned within its territory and already decimated by a ruined economy.

    Israel attacked Gaza with the most advanced combat aircraft in the world, flying nearly 3000 sorties and dropping 1000 tons of explosives.  The U.S. Senate unanimously supported the attack and the House vote was 390 to 5.  New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman “joined the chorus of hallelujahs during Cast Lead” and expressed hope that Israel would “’educate’ Hamas by inflicting a heavy death toll on Hamas militants and heavy pain on the Gaza population.” Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni “audaciously declared in the midst of Cast Lead that ‘no humanitarian crisis’ existed in Gaza.  UNRWA director described what was obvious from eyewitness photographs and newscasts: “‘We have a catastrophe unfolding in Gaza for the civilian population…. They’re trapped, they’re traumatized, they’re terrorized.”    What was also obvious was that Israel systematically targeted Gaza’s civilian infrastructure.  1400 civilians were killed, including 350 children.

    Amnesty International and the Goldstone Report established that Israeli soldiers, not Hamas, used civilians as human shields. The Goldstone Report found that much of the devastation was premeditated and anchored in a military doctrine.  The Report stated that the assault constituted “a deliberately disproportionate attack designed to punish, humiliate and terrorize a civilian population….” The Report also paid tribute to “the resilience and dignity of the Gazan people.” It recommended that individual states “start criminal investigations in national courts, using universal jurisdiction….”  It noted Israel’s “seemingly deliberate cruelty” to children.

  • Sir Gerald Kaufmann (UK Jewish MP):
    “My grandmother was ill in bed when the Nazis came to her home town. A German soldier shot her dead in her bed. “My grandmother did not die to provide cover for Israeli soldiers murdering Palestinian grandmothers in Gaza. ”

    “The present Israeli government ruthlessly and cynically exploits the continuing guilt among gentiles over the slaughter of Jews in the Holocaust as justification for their murder of Palestinians.”

  • He said the claim that many of the Palestinian victims were militants “was the reply of the Nazi” and added: “I suppose the Jews fighting for their lives in the Warsaw ghetto could have been dismissed as militants.”

‘Israel was born out of Jewish Terrorism! …. They are not simply war criminals. They are fools!’

  • … it turns out the creation of Israel had not, after all, been a haphazard fight in which the Arabs fled their homes at the directives of their own leaders, but it had been an unprovoked, systematic campaign of ethnic cleansing by the Jewish militia involving massacres, terrorism and the wholesale looting of an entire nation.” from 4:22 onwards
  • “In 2001, Dr. Ariella Oppenheim, of Hebrew University, a biologist, published the first extensive study of DNA and the origin of the Jews. Her research found that virtually all the Jews came from Khazar blood. Not only that but Oppenheim discovered that the Palestinians—the very people whom the Jews had been persecuting and ejecting from Israel’s land since 1948—had more Israelite blood than did the Jews. In sum, the vast majority of the Jews were not Jews; some of the Palestinians were. Some of the Palestinians even had a DNA chromosome which established that they were “Cohens”—workers at the ancient Temple and synagogues of the Jews.” – Quote

  • Israel Has Been Secretly Funding Syrian Rebels (ISIS, Al Qaeda) For Years
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com/
    Earlier, when discussing why the Syrian “rebels” fighting Assad are in “turmoil”, we said that as a result of the ongoing Qatar crisis the various Saudi and Qatari supply chains supporting the rebels, both in terms of weapons and funding, had dried up due to the diplomatic fallout involving Qatar and Saudi Arabia. “Together with Turkey and the United States, Qatar and Saudi Arabia have been major sponsors of the insurgency, arming an array of groups that have been fighting to topple Syria’s Iran-backed president.”

    We concluded that “the rebellion against Assad now seems moot, which is why the most likely outcome is a continued phase-out of support for forces fighting the Syria government until eventually the situation reverts back to its pre-2011 “status quo.”

    That, however, may have been premature as it was missing a key piece of data, one which was just revealed by the WSJ and which many had suspected. According to the Journal, Israel and Saudi Arabia have been alligned from the onset of the Syrian conflict, “with Israel supplying Syrian rebels near its border with cash as well as food, fuel and medical supplies for years, a secret engagement in the enemy country’s civil war aimed at carving out a buffer zone populated by friendly forces.”

    The Israeli army is in regular communication with rebel groups and its assistance includes undisclosed payments to commanders that help pay salaries of fighters and buy ammunition and weapons, according to interviews with about half a dozen Syrian fighters. Israel has established a military unit that oversees the support in Syria—a country that it has been in a state of war with for decades—and set aside a specific budget for the aid, said one person familiar with the Israeli operation.

    This news comes as a major surprise because while it was well known that Israel has provided medical help for Syrian civilians and fighters inside its own borders in the past, with the IDF retaliating to occasional stray rockets in the restive border region with reprisals, it was previously thought that the Israeli authorities largely stay out of the complicated six-year-old conflict next door.

    That now appears to have been dead wrong.
    “Israel stood by our side in a heroic way,” said Moatasem al-Golani, spokesman for the rebel group Fursan al-Joulan, or Knights of the Golan. “We wouldn’t have survived without Israel’s assistance.”

Michael Pento: Rising Rates Forecast Insolvency, Profound Chaos Coming

  • Michael Pento: Rising Rates Forecast Insolvency, Profound Chaos Coming
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 
    Money manager Michael Pento says recently rising interest rates are signaling big trouble for the economy. Pento contends, “There are so many things that can go wrong with rising interest rates.  First of all, you have to understand that the permabulls that you hear on CNBC will tell you there is nothing wrong with rising interest rates.  It is a symbol of growth.  If you look at industrial production and retail sales for January, they were negative.  So, rising rates are occurring, not because of growth, they are caused by insolvency concerns.  That is the key metric here, and they are credit risks and insolvency concerns.”


    Who is insolvent? Pento says, “Europe is insolvent.  The United States is insolvent. . . . We have $21 trillion in debt.  That’s seven times our revenue.  So, we are technically insolvent.  You haven’t seen anything yet because as interest rates rise, debt service expenses rise. . . . Certainly, beyond a shadow of doubt, the Bank of Japan is insolvent.”

    Pento says 10-year Treasury rates could easily go to “7%,” which is a massive move from a little less than 3% today. This would not be some wild swing, but a “return to long term averages.”  What are central bankers going to do then?  Pento says, “I think the end game is central bankers are going to come back in and buy everything.  They are going to buy every fixed income sovereign debt instrument that they can find because interest rates are going to spiral out of control. . . . You are going to have a panic out of Treasuries, a panic out of high yield, a panic out of leveraged loans and a panic out of bond funds.”

    Pento also predicts, “For the first time in 40 years, you are going to have bond prices and equity prices in free-fall. That happened in the 1970’s, but it’s going to be worse because in the 1970’s, you didn’t have an insolvency concern. . . The chaos coming to markets is here.  It’s not going away, and it’s not going to be brushed under the rug.  It’s not going to stay on the sidelines for another few years.  The years from 2007 to 2017 were the years central banks were buying everything.  There was no volatility, and stocks just went up.  Those days have ended, and the volatility is only going to become much more profound.”

    About that troll farm…
    Adrian Chen, staff writer for The New Yorker – who first profiled the indicted Russian troll farm in 2015, sat down with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, where he proceeded to deflate Mueller’s big scary indictment to nothing.


    “Tried to tamp down the troll farm panic on @chrislhayes show last night,” Adrian Chen tweeted. “It’s 90 people with a shaky grasp of English and a rudimentary understanding of U.S. politics shitposting on Facebook.
