zionist carpetbaggers .....

zionist carpetbaggers .....

Ongoing since its May 14, 1948 "Declaration of Independence," Israel systematically reigned terror against Palestinians and neighboring states, always claiming self-defense - bogus then, bogus now, historian Ilan Pappe describing Israel as a "settler Prussian state: a combination of colonialist policies....manifested in the dominance of the army over political, cultural and economic life," then adding:

"You probably have to be born in Israel, as I was, and go through the whole process of socialisation (sic) and education - including serving in the army - to grasp the power of this militarist mentality and its dire consequences. And you need such a background to understand why the whole premise on which the international community's approach to the Middle East is based, is utterly and disastrously wrong," so much so that Israel is slowly self-destructing, preventable only by an entirely new mindset.

Public discourse won't admit it or that Palestinians "lost 80% of their homeland" in a few short months, about 800,000 of them either dispossessed or massacred. Then in 1967, "they lost the remaining 20%," not recovered after 43 years, nor have they received any measure of justice, Cast Lead and Gaza's siege the most extreme recent examples.

State Terror, Israeli Style

meanwhile .....

A few days before his scheduled visit to Washington on 7 July, Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu appears as deliberately thwarting American efforts to push forward indirect talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA).

This week, an Israeli government body was set to approve "an unprecedented master plan" for an all-out expansion of Jewish settlements that would effectively -- using the words of one Palestinian official -- "decapitate" East Jerusalem's Arab identity.

The plan would see the building of tens of thousands of Jewish-only apartments in East Jerusalem to be constructed on Arab owned land.

The Jerusalem Municipal Council, controlled by fanatical Jewish radicals advocating ethnic cleansing of non-Jews in the city, is trying to enforce the plan with a discernible green light from the government.

In essence, the plan would leave a zero room for future expansion of Arabs in Jerusalem, as virtually all remaining open space or "green areas" would be used for "Jewish development".

The estimated 270,000 Arab East Jerusalemites are already confined to a mere 13 per cent of East Jerusalem while more than 85 per cent of the city has been seized by Jewish authorities since 1967, when Israel occupied East Jerusalem and the rest of the West Bank.

According to Palestinian officials, the plan -- if carried out -- constitutes a turning point in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and will surely lead to an early and potentially violent collapse of the shaky and uncertain peace process.

Israel's new master plan Quietly, Israel is preparing the biggest illegal land grab in recent memory, all on Obama's watch

Democracy is a marketing ploy.

Perhaps there is some logic in "never complain unless you have an alternative".

I voted Liberal in my days of Naval Service but, having foolishly refused the opportunity for a commission and doing a "Lindsay Tanner" and returning to civilian life, I recognized the enormous gap between the haves and the have not’s during the reign of "Pig Iron Bob" or "Ming the Merciless" Menzies as he was so unpleasantly and deservedly addressed.

In those days I became one of Kevin Rudd's subsequent "working families" and life was difficult for the "untermenschen".  As one of my businessmen brothers opined, "when Liberals are in government there is plenty of confidence in businesses but little business - conversely, when Labor is in Government, there is little confidence in businesses but plenty of business".

The tragedy of Australia today is that the existence of Corporation governments for only “Corporations” like those of Howard’s “New Order” and Bushit’s “they hate us for our values” – have just won a media led attack on the Australian people by the negative politics of a “failing America”.

Make no mistake, when a media mogul like Murdoch shows contempt for the “long lost intent of democracy” and operates solely on power and profit “with the accent on Power” then his cronies are as guilty of accepting bribes as are the Senators and Congressmen and women of the US.

During the influx of European immigrants, especially the English, we Australians accepted the need for them and they were called the "Ten Pound Poms".  Subsequently, their behavior once in Australia, earned for them the title of “whinging poms”.

Nothing was ever good enough – we owed them – they were conned into coming out here to show us how to live – we were modern day colonialists.

And then, while writing this, it occurred to me that the most consistent of all Zionist’ emotions is paranoia.  "Everyone hates us – everyone has wrongly treated us over the centuries and – this is their key point which doesn’t survive scrutiny – they did “nothing to deserve such treatment”.

And so this unbelievable anti-civilized mindset prepares us for another world war bearing in mind that the same Zionists were very much involved in the causes of the last two world wars.

Can we “Democratic” peoples genuinely put a stop to the singularly independent and divisive attitude of the Jewish organizations that are currently affecting our everyday politics?  And still be “democratic”?

Yes we can - and the US/Zionist alliance has set the precedents to such sanctions and restrictions that will be necessary to curb the Jewish onslaught under the aegis of US “democracy”.

God Bless Australia and now that the Labor Party have demonstrated their intentions of ensuring Australia’s future is financially solid – learn the lesson of the influence of the Murdoch Australian and ask yourself – do we really want a politically powerful and unelected group of wealthy people to control our country? NE OUBLIE.

Israel Grows Uneasy Over Reliance on Migrant Labor

By DAN LEVIN

TEL AVIV — Perched 22 stories above an affluent suburb of this prosperous seaside city, three Chinese construction workers inched their way along the arm of a crane last autumn and refused to budge. Facing deportation because of expiring visas, theirs was an act of desperation aimed at getting thousands of dollars in wages they claimed their Israeli employer had illegally withheld.

The daredevil protest had the desired effect: after the men spent nine hours on the crane, the construction company agreed to pay each the equivalent of $1,000. Satisfied, they climbed down and voluntarily headed to the airport.

For Israelis, the crane standoff — the second in a matter of months — was an unwanted reminder of their country’s troubled economic experiment with foreign labor. Since the first intifada of the early 1990s, more than a million migrants from the developing world have come to Israel to replace the Palestinians, who were the country’s original source of cheap labor.

At least 250,000 foreign laborers, about half of them illegal, are living in the country, according to the Israeli government. They include Chinese construction workers, Filipino home health care aides and Thai farmhands, as well as other Asians, and Africans and Eastern Europeans, working as maids, cooks and nannies.

“Israelis won’t do this work, so they bring us,” said Wang Yingzhong, 40, a construction worker from Jiangsu Province in China who arrived in 2006.

But even as foreign workers have become a mainstay of the economy, their presence has increasingly clashed with Israel’s Zionist ideology, causing growing political unease over the future of the Jewish state and their place in it.

The government has lurched through a series of contradictory policies that encourage the temporary employment of migrants while seeking to impose tight visa and labor restrictions that can leave them vulnerable to abusive employers, advocates for the workers say.

Tax-Exempt Funds Aid Settlements in West Bank

By JIM RUTENBERG, MIKE McINTIRE and ETHAN BRONNER

HAR BRACHA, West Bank — Twice a year, American evangelicals show up at a winery in this Jewish settlement in the hills of ancient Samaria to play a direct role in biblical prophecy, picking grapes and pruning vines.

Believing that Christian help for Jewish winemakers here in the occupied West Bank foretells Christ’s second coming, they are recruited by a Tennessee-based charity called HaYovel that invites volunteers “to labor side by side with the people of Israel” and “to share with them a passion for the soon coming jubilee in Yeshua, messiah.”

But during their visit in February the volunteers found themselves in the middle of the fight for land that defines daily life here. When the evangelicals headed into the vineyards, they were pelted with rocks by Palestinians who say the settlers have planted creeping grape vines on their land to claim it as their own. Two volunteers were hurt. In the ensuing scuffle, a settler guard shot a 17-year-old Palestinian shepherd in the leg.

“These people are filled with ideas that this is the Promised Land and their duty is to help the Jews,” said Izdat Said Qadoos of the neighboring Palestinian village. “It is not the Promised Land. It is our land.”

HaYovel is one of many groups in the United States using tax-exempt donations to help Jews establish permanence in the Israeli-occupied territories — effectively obstructing the creation of a Palestinian state, widely seen as a necessary condition for Middle East peace.

The result is a surprising juxtaposition: As the American government seeks to end the four-decade Jewish settlement enterprise and foster a Palestinian state in the West Bank, the American Treasury helps sustain the settlements through tax breaks on donations to support them.

A New York Times examination of public records in the United States and Israel identified at least 40 American groups that have collected more than $200 million in tax-deductible gifts for Jewish settlement in the West Bank and East Jerusalem over the last decade. The money goes mostly to schools, synagogues, recreation centers and the like, legitimate expenditures under the tax law. But it has also paid for more legally questionable commodities: housing as well as guard dogs, bulletproof vests, rifle scopes and vehicles to secure outposts deep in occupied areas.

the daily dash .....

Frank Luntz's focus-group assessment of US reaction to the assault on the Mavi Marmara is striking. Some of the Israeli propaganda is simply not working. Take, for example, Charles Krauthammer's claim that "there is a larger issue here. What exactly is the humanitarian crisis that the flotilla was actually addressing? There is none. No one is starving in Gaza," or Netanyahu's statement that "There's no shortage of food, there's no shortage of medicine, there's no shortage of other goods," or Ehud Barak's view that "There is no hunger in Gaza and no humanitarian crisis."

According to Luntz, 56% of Americans agree with the claim that there is a humanitarian crisis in Gaza; and 43% of Americans agree with the claim that people in Gaza are starving.

More to the point, only 34% of Americans supported the Israeli operation against the Flotilla. That compares with 71 percent of members of Congress signing the AIPAC-backed resolution defending the raid.

What accounts for this extraordinary discrepancy between the views of Americans and the views of the congressmen who allegedly represent them?

making einstein proud .....

On April 9, 1948, 120 fighters from the Irgun and Lehi Zionist paramilitary groups attacked Deir Yassin, near Jerusalem, a Palestinian-Arab village of approximately 600 people. During the assault, around 107 villagers were killed, including women and children. In addition, several villagers were taken prisoner, and were later jeered, spat at, and stoned.

According to most accounts, those villagers lived in peace with their Jewish neighbors from nearby villages. Some of them, from the Givat Shaul Orthodox community just across the valley, tried to help the Deir Yassin villagers during the Irgun-Lehi combined attack. After the attack, the Irgun and Lehi troops began pillaging the houses and corpses, stealing money and jewellery from the survivors, reported the Israeli historian Benny Morris.

"I saw the horrors that the fighters had created. I saw bodies of women and children, who were murdered in their houses in cold blood by gunfire, with no signs of battle and not as the result of blowing up the houses...I have seen a great deal of war, but I never saw a sight like Deir, Yassin," declared Eliahu Arbel, Operations Officer B of the Haganah's Etzione Brigade, who arrived at the scene on April 10.

The news of the massacre sparked terror among the Palestinian-Arabs and were an important factor in encouraging them to flee from their towns and villages afraid of the Jewish troop advances. "They ended up expelling people from all of Palestine on the rumor of Deir Yassin," declared later Mohammad Radwan, a survivor of the massacre.

Haganah and the area two chief rabbis condemned the killings and the Jewish Agency for Israel sent Jordan's King Abdulla a letter of apology, which the King rebuffed. At the time of the attack Menachem Begin was a leader of the Irgun, although he wasn't personally involved in it.

On December 4, 1948, Albert Einstein was the most prominent signatory of a letter to the New York Times by a group of Jewish intellectuals on the occasion of Begin's visit to the United States. Part of the letter reads as follows: "...It is inconceivable that those who oppose fascism throughout the world, if correctly informed as to Mr. Begin's political record and perspectives, could add their names and support to the movement he represents."

What Would Einstein Have Said about Gaza?

when the cap fits .....

In the midst of its campaign against Hizbollah and Hamas "terrorists", Israel has been accused by Britain of feting Jewish "terrorists" whose bomb attack killed 28 Britons 60 years ago today.

The accusation, which reopens the debate about the use of politically-inspired violence in the region, follows the unveiling of a plaque commemorating the attack on the King David hotel in Jerusalem on July 22, 1946, by the Irgun Jewish "resistance" to British mandate rule in Palestine. The 28 Britons were among 91 people killed.

Israel celebrates Irgun hotel bombers

Uncontrolled power endangers everything it touches.

Will the next thing be a plaque outside of Auschwitz to commemorate the deaths of the Camp Guards?  Or more at all concentration camps “lest we forget” the untermenschen (gypsies; Russians; Slavs; homosexuals; cripples and mentally deficient – oh yes and the relatives of the Irgun terrorists?

Shall we lay a wreath at the centre of Gaza to commemorate the murder of those innocent civilians and the horrific result of the Gaza Holocaust?

Should we raise awareness of the illegal Jewish blockade of the Gazans in the world’s biggest concentration camp by putting plaques commemorating those illegal and vicious attacks in the Jewish claimed section of Jerusalem?

Should the Palestinians raise commemorating plaques in Lebanon for the humble Hezbollah defeat of the Jews in occupied Lebanon?

Perhaps the undeclared wars of the Zionists against Libya; Lebanon; Syria; Egypt and any legal sovereign nation that dares to even think about freedom?

What would Albert Einstein think?  IMHO he would be outraged. And well he should.

God Bless Australia and give us freedom from foreign influence and power.  NE OUBLIE.

 

no surprise .....

Anger has arisen in Palestinian areas over reports that millions of tax-exempt dollars from the U.S. are being funneled towards Israel's illegal settlement building in the Palestinian West Bank - in flagrant violation of international law.

This is happening under the nose of the U.S. administration despite its claims of support for a two-state solution and criticism of Israel's continued settlement building.

The Palestinian Authority (PA) based in Ramallah has expressed outrage. "Adhering to international law is a big step towards holding Israel accountable for its actions," PA spokesman Ghassan Khatib told IPS from the Muqata (government) headquarters in Ramallah.

"Settlements violate international law, and the United States is supposed to be sponsoring a two-state solution, yet it gives deductions for donation to the settlements," said Saeb Erekat the PA's chief negotiator.

According to a recent report in The New York Times 40 U.S. groups have raised more than 200 million dollars in tax-deductable donations for Jewish settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem during the last ten years. U.S. tax rules prohibit the use of charitable funds for political purposes at home or abroad.

But U.S. tax laws encourage citizens to support non-profit groups whose ideologies might diverge from official government policy as long as their missions are educational, religious or charitable. Religious groups have no obligation to divulge their finances, meaning settlements may be receiving sums that cannot be traced.

Why? Why do the Zionists control American politics?

Israel's Fingerprints Surface The Hariri Assassination

By RANNIE AMIRI    (Selective and emphasis is mine-EWG)

In the Middle East, the link between political machinations, espionage and assassination is either clear as day, or clear as mud.

As for the yet unsolved case of the February 2005 murder of Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri, mud might be giving way to daylight.

A crackdown on Israeli spy rings operating in Lebanon has resulted in more than 70 arrests over the past 18 months. Included among them are four high-ranking Lebanese Army and General Security officers—one having spied for the Mossad since 1984.

According to the Lebanese daily As-Safir, Qazzi confessed to installing computer programs and planting electronic chips in Alfa transmitters. These could then be used by Israeli intelligence to monitor communications, locate and target individuals for assassination, and potentially deploy viruses capable of erasing recorded information in the contact lines. Qazzi’s collaboration with Israel reportedly dates back 14 years.

Israel has refused to comment on the arrests. Nevertheless, their apparent ability to have penetrated Lebanon’s military and telecommunication sectors has rattled the country and urgently raised security concerns.

What does any of this have to do with the Hariri assassination?

Outside the obvious deleterious ramifications of high-ranking Lebanese military officers working for Israel, [So called Christians?] the very legitimacy of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL) is now in question. The STL is the U.N.-sanctioned body tasked with prosecuting those responsible for the assassination of the late prime minister. On Feb. 14, 2005, 1,000 kg of explosives detonated near Hariri’s passing motorcade, killing him and 21 others. [The US would never allow the UN to implement a sanction on the Zionists]

It is believed the STL will issue indictments in the matter as early as September—relying heavily on phone recordings and mobile transmissions to do so. According to the AFP, “A preliminary report by the U.N. investigating team said it had collected data from mobile phone calls made the day of Hariri's murder as evidence.”

The National likewise reported, “The international inquiry, which could present indictments or findings as soon as September, according to unverified media reports, used extensive phone records to draw conclusions into a conspiracy to kill Hariri, widely blamed on Syria and its Lebanese allies ...”

In a July 16 televised speech, Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayyid Hassan Nasrallah speculated the STL would use information gleaned from Israeli-compromised communications to falsely implicate the group in the prime minister’s murder:

“Some are counting in their analysis of the (STL) indictment on witnesses, some of whom turned out to be fake, and on the telecommunications networks which were infiltrated by spies who can change and manipulate data.  

“Before the (2006) war, these spies gave important information to the Israeli enemy and based on this information, Israel bombed buildings, homes, factories and institutions. Many martyrs died and many others were wounded. These spies are partners in the killings, the crimes, the threats and the displacement.”

Nasrallah called the STL’s manipulation an “Israeli project” meant to “create an uproar in Lebanon.”

Indeed, in May 2008 Lebanon experienced a taste of this. At the height of an 18-month stalemate over the formation of a national unity government under then Prime Minister Fouad Siniora, his cabinet’s decision to unilaterally declare Hezbollah’s fixed-line communication system illegal pushed the country to the brink of civil war.

Recognizing the value their secure lines of communication had in combating the July 2006 Israeli invasion and suspecting that state-owned telecoms might be compromised, Hezbollah resisted Siniora’s plans to have its network dismantled. Their men swept through West Beirut and put a quick end to the government’s plan. Two years later, their suspicions appear to have been vindicated.

Giving credence to Nasrallah and Aoun’s assertions, Commander in Chief of the Israel Defense Forces Gabi Ashkenazi, predicted “with lots of wishes” that the situation in Lebanon would deteriorate in September after the STL indicts Hezbollah for Hariri’s assassination.

Ashkenazi’s gleeful, prescient testimony to the Knesset’s Foreign Affairs Committee betrays what Israel hopes the fallout from the STL’s report will be: fomentation of civil strife and discord among Lebanon’s sectarian groups, generally divided into pro- and anti-Syria factions. Ashkenazi anticipates this to happen, of course, because he knows Israel’s unfettered access to critical phone records will have framed Hezbollah for the crime.

Israel’s agents and operatives in Lebanon and its infiltration of a telecom network have been exposed. At the very least, the STL must recognize that evidence of alleged Hezbollah involvement in Hariri’s death (a group that historically enjoyed good ties with the late premier) is wholly tainted and likely doctored.

The arrest of Qazzi and al-Raba’a in the breakup of Israeli spy rings should prompt the STL to shift its focus to the only regional player that has benefited from Hariri’s murder; one that will continue to do so if and when their designs to implicate Hezbollah are realized.

It is time to look at Tel Aviv.

another inconvenient truth .....

A report quietly submitted by IDF Military Advocate General Avichai Mandelblit to the United Nations two weeks ago regarding Israel's conduct during Operation Cast Lead confirms the key findings of the Goldstone Report.

The report (full version here), which documents 150 ongoing investigations, has outraged the Israeli Army. "It looks as though they were frightened by Goldstone," remarked an IDF officer. Another military official expressed anger that after a previous IDF report asserting the legality of shelling civilian areas with white phosphorous, a chemical weapon, the Mandelblit report has issued recommendations limiting the munition's use. "It looks like tying your own hands behind your back. Why should a weapon with which there is no problem be limited?" the official asked.

Mandelblit's confirmation of the IDF's use of white phosphorous in Gaza against a UN compound is one of his report's most remarkable admissions. He has directly contradicted a lie told over and over again to the Israeli public in the immediate aftermath of Cast Lead, and repeated in an April 2009 IDF report, that "no phosphorous munitions were used on built-up areas."

IDF Report Confirming Goldstone's Key Findings Is Suppressed Inside Israel

the real terrorists .....

Interesting to note that a Ynet article profiling one of the Zionists who bombed the King David Hotel in Jerusalem on July 22, 1946, killing almost one hundred people including dozens of civilians, refers to the act as "Jewish resistance."

Of course Zionists were not "resisting" anything when they introduced terrorism as we know it today to Palestine. They were in the process of a violent takeover of Palestine from its indigenous people.

This is notable given that the Israeli media routinely refer to attacks or self-defence by Palestinians, even against armed, combatant Israeli occupation soldiers as "terrorism.""

When Zionists carried out atrocities, Israeli press calls it "resistance"

meanwhile .....

Official Israeli data obtained by the Jerusalem center for social and economic rights said Israel has deprived more than 86,000 Jerusalemite Palestinians of their residency rights in the holy city since it occupied the eastern side in 1967.

According to the center, the Israeli interior ministry revoked the residency of 721 Jerusalemites in 2009 and 108 others from the beginning of the current year to the sixth of June.

Based on these data, 14,371 Jerusalemite families composed of about 86,226 individuals have lost their residency permits since 1967.

However, director of the center Ziad Al-Hammouri questioned the validity of the figures and data provided by the interior ministry confirming that the numbers are much higher.

Israeli data: Israel revoked residency of over 86,000 Jerusalemites since 1967
