Americans Oppose Investigating the Gaza Massacre – Antiwar.com Original

What accounts for the lack of popular American support for an investigation into the shootings? The Israel lobby’s quest for unconditional US government support has been well-funded and ably pursued – through licit and illicit means – since long before Israel was established in 1948. Today the Israel lobby’s campaign finance network instantly imperils the career of any American politician who fails to parrot pro-Israel talking points and Israeli government positions. Clandestine cutouts conduct espionage and covert operations with utter impunity against US industries, associations and activists who meaningfully challenge harmful Israeli actions.

The Israel lobby’s long-term media manipulation has been particularly effective….

Trump’s peace plan is stalled, but he’s bringing Israel and Gulf states

Posted by Martin C. Fox on May 14, 2018

The ultimate peace deal for Netanyahu is the annihilation of Palestinians.

Why do we put the desires of terrorist Sunni nations, like Saudi Arabia, over shia countries that have never attacked US?

Is it because Bibi runs the show? You know Bibi, he is the guy that said there is undeniable proof Iraq had chemical and biological weapons.

Barak Ravid

In the last year, relations between Israel and the Gulf states have grown warmer and deeper.

Why it’s happening: Much of it has to do with the alignment in interests over the Iranian threat, but the Trump administration’s efforts to promote a Middle East peace deal and get the Sunni states and Israel to work together have also been a factor…. Read the rest of this entry »

Israel Uses Intelligence Cutouts To Target the US – Antiwar.com Original

Posted by Martin C. Fox on May 11, 2018

More of the same from Israel. These guys are in control and won’t give up.

https://original.antiwar.com/smith-grant/2018/05/10/israel-uses-intelligence-cutouts-to-target-the-us/

by 

An Israeli intelligence entity called “Black Cube” targeted Obama administration officials such as former foreign policy advisor Ben Rhoads and outside experts, such as the National Iranian American Council’s Trita Parsi, that advocated for passage of the JCPOA known as the “Iran nuclear deal.” Though most media reports reference Black Cube’s self-designation as a “private intelligence company” while noting it employs former Mossad officers, there are reasons to doubt it is entirely unconnected from the Israeli government, which wanted to undermine the JCPOA. Israeli spy Shai Masot, secretly recorded in an Al Jazeera undercover video, freely admitted Israel was setting up just such private corporations to clandestinely do its bidding. While not solely responsible for the Trump Administration’s decision to ditch the JCPOA, Black Cube’s intelligence operation clearly tried to inch the US closer to open military conflict with Iran, which could cost countless lives and trillions of dollars…

America’s Word Is Worthless – PaulCraigRoberts.org

Posted by Martin C. Fox on May 10, 2018

Will Russia finally wake up and stop inviting more dangerous situations by her extraordinary indecisiveness? If Putin doesn’t put his foot down, he is going to get us all killed.

Paul Craig Roberts

We can now dismiss all hope that Trump’s campaign promises to pull out of Syria, normalize relations with Russia and stop the offshoring of American jobs will ever become US policies. By dishonoring the US government’s word and pulling out of the Iran nuclear non-proliferation agreement, an agreement signed by the US, UK, France, Germany, Russia, China, and Iran, President Trump has revealed that his regime is totally in the hands of the Zionist warmongers.

Do Americans Want To Die For Israel? – PaulCraigRoberts.org

Posted by Martin C. Fox on May 10, 2018

The Saker says that “Americans should ask themselves—Do I want to die for Israel?” https://russia-insider.com/en/americans-should-ask-themselves-do-i-want-die-israel/ri23382

That is the question you should ask your child when they contemplate military “service”.

Paul Craig Roberts

Only a few days remain before Trump announces whether he is pulling the US out of the multi-nation agreement with Iran. Iran has kept the agreement. https://www.geopolitica.ru/en/article/message-iran

Even Washington’s vassals—UK, France, Germany—have announced that they are sticking with the agreement.
https://sputniknews.com/world/201805071064213277-france-germany-uk-iran-deal-us-decision/

So where is the pressure on Trump coming from to destroy the carefully negotiated agreement in which Iran agreed to forgo development of nuclear weapons?

It comes from Israel and Israel’s American Fifth Column—the neoconservatives. Read the rest of this entry »

You are hereHome News Israel hopes spy Pollard can emigrate for US embassy opening

Posted by Martin C. Fox on April 30, 2018

Is Trump really an America firster?  Do you consider this an acid test?

If it were congress’ decision Pollard would already be in his US taxpayer paid for Jerusalem condo.

Masters voice

Congress listening to their master’s voice.

https://www.afp.com/en/news/826/israel-hopes-spy-pollard-can-emigrate-us-embassy-opening-doc-14f82x1

Israel hopes Jonathan Pollard, an American spy who served 30 years in prison for selling secrets to the Jewish state, will be allowed to emigrate there as the US moves its embassy to Jerusalem, a minister said on Monday.

“I hope that President Donald Trump will offer another gift to Israelis by allowing Jonathan Pollard to come and celebrate the opening of the American embassy in Jerusalem,” Israel’s Transport and Intelligence Minister Yisrael Katz told army radio.

Once Upon A Time Long Ago Truth Was Important – PaulCraigRoberts.org

Posted by Martin C. Fox on April 17, 2018

Why all of a sudden do 70 Syrians matter to Washington?

Some dead people are more important than others. One of those others is usually NOT US soldiers.

https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2018/04/16/upon-time-long-ago-truth-important/

Paul Craig Roberts

…During the entirety of the 21st century, Israel, Washington’s only ally—as contrasted with the European, Canadian, Australian, and Japanese vassal states of Washington’s empire—has continued with Washington’s support, protection, and encouragement the genocide of the Palestinian people. Essentially, all that is left of Palestine is a ghetto concentration camp known as Gaza which is routinely bombed by Israel using weapons and money supplied by Washington. When a bombing of Gaza is announced, God’s Chosen People take their lawn chairs and picnics up on a hill overlooking Gaza and applaud as the Israeli military murders women and children. This is America’s only ally.

The crimes committed by the US and Israel are horrific, but meet with little opposition. In contrast, an alleged attack in which 70 Syrians are alleged to have died sets in motion the wheels of war. It makes no sense whatsoever. Israel routinely bombs Syrian targets, killing Syrians, and the US arms and supports the “rebels” that the Obama regime sent to overthrow Assad, resulting in large numbers of dead Syrians. Why all of a sudden do 70 Syrians matter to Washington? Read the rest of this entry »

’54 Palestinians die’ as Israel refuses medical permits | News | Al Jazeera

Posted by Martin C. Fox on February 14, 2018

http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2018/02/palestinians-die-israel-refuses-medical-permits-180213122412689.html

by

Israel was responsible for at least 54 Palestinian deaths last year as it rejected hundreds of medical permit requests it received from Gaza residents seeking treatment outside the besieged strip, rights groups have said.

In a joint statement on Tuesday, the Gaza-based Al Mezan Center for Human Rights, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP), and Physicians for Human Rights Israel (PHRI), highlighted the immediate need for Israel to end its decade-long siege of the Gaza Strip.

Taylor Force Act Selectively Chooses Outrage – The Forward

Posted by Martin C. Fox on December 27, 2017

Congress doesn’t bite the hand that feeds it.

https://forward.com/opinion/390062/why-doesnt-congress-care-when-israel-kills-american-citizens/
 But not all American deaths in Israel-Palestine are treated equally — and the difference in reaction to the killings of Palestinian-Americans by Israeli forces is a stark reminder of how little Palestinian life is valued in the U.S. Congress. When Americans of Palestinian descent are shot dead by Israeli soldiers, no Senators or Congressmen rush to press for accountability from Israel’s army, or put the names of Palestinian victims on legislation that would tie U.S. aid to Israel to policy changes…
