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

Posted by Martin C. Fox on February 14, 2018

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…

Trump’s Lop-Sided Crusade – LewRockwell

Posted by Martin C. Fox on December 10, 2017

The “two state solution” always was fake news.

Moving the US embassy to Jerusalem means the US ambassador’s walk to receive his orders is shorter.

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2017/12/eric-margolis/trumps-crusade/

The US has maintained the fiction for decades of being an even-handed mediator between Israel and the Palestinians.  This week, President Donald Trump finally junked this tired, old canard by agreeing to move the US Embassy to Jerusalem from its current headquarters in Tel Aviv.

The Olympics and Jerusalem: Disillusionment confirmed

Posted by Martin C. Fox on December 7, 2017

http://theduran.com/the-olympics-and-jerusalem-disillusionment-confirmed/

This week’s two most dramatic events will go down in history as shattering the wishful-thinking illusions that anyone might have still had about the Trump Administration’s policies towards Russia and Israel.

Both candidates represented a promising break from the past and swore to reverse the failed policies of their predecessors, and each were elected out of the desperation that most Americans were feeling at the time, whether real or imagined. They “talked the talk” and said all the “right” things, but once they got into office, they didn’t exactly “walk the walk” that they were supposed to. Obama promised a new era of relations with the Muslim World, while Trump said that he’d do the same vis-à-vis Russia. Read the rest of this entry »

Fighting Israel’s Wars, by Philip Giraldi – The Unz Review

Posted by Martin C. Fox on November 29, 2017

And one other thing you can bet on is that Mueller will not be looking at the country that actually does interfere in American politics most…

http://www.unz.com/pgiraldi/fighting-israels-wars/

There has been a report that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is looking into foreign lobbying in Washington while another story relates how his team is investigating the alleged contact of a Donald Trump associate with a Hungarian. Both are part of the ongoing investigation into Russiagate. Unless I am wrong, which happens occasionally, Hungary is a member of the European Union and also of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). It has relatively free elections and its government changes as a result. Read the rest of this entry »

Thousands of Arab Bedouins in Israel’s Negev desert are denied power, water, sewage, and roads by the state. And their villages are under constant threat of demolition.

American Indians have someone with whom to kibitz.

It’s no secret that there is an occupation happening in and around Israel.

Most people agree that the West Bank and Gaza Strip have been occupied since 1967. Much less thought and literature is dedicated to the treatment of Palestinians living inside modern-day Israel proper. I decided to head over there and see for myself.

It is commonly believed that Palestinian citizens of Israel – officially known as Arab Israelis – enjoy full equality in the Jewish State. There are Arab members of parliament, the Arab population in Israel has been growing steadily for decades, and the Arab cultural scene is thriving in places like Haifa. While all of these statements are true, Palestinians insist that occupation still exists inside the state of Israel, and nowhere is that fact more apparent than in the unrecognized Bedouin villages of the Negev desert.

Posted by Martin C. Fox on November 14, 2017

The US isn’t their only bought and paid for sock puppet.

http://original.antiwar.com/cook/2017/11/13/israel-lobby-slowly-dragged-light/

“Explosive” Leaked Secret Israeli Cable Confirms Israeli-Saudi Coordination To Provoke War | Zero Hedge

Posted by Martin C. Fox on November 8, 2017

Our “allies” are doing their job well. Maintaining the war machine at all costs.

Those costs being absorbed by ME civilian lives and US taxes.

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-11-07/leaked-secret-israeli-cable-confirms-israeli-saudi-coordination-lebanon

Early this morning, Israeli Channel 10 news published a leaked diplomatic cable which had been sent to all Israeli ambassadors throughout the world concerning the chaotic events that unfolded over the weekend in Lebanon and Saudi Arabia, which began with Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri’s unexpected resignation after he was summoned to Riyadh by his Saudi-backers, and led to the Saudis announcing that Lebanon had “declared war” against the kingdom. 

The classified embassy cable, written in Hebrew, constitutes the first formal evidence proving that the Saudis and Israelis are deliberately coordinating to escalate the situation in the Middle East.  Read the rest of this entry »

Forget the ‘slippery slope’ — Israel already is an apartheid state: Neil Macdonald – CBC News | Opinion

Posted by Martin C. Fox on October 27, 2017

So was Netanyahu an apartheid leader when congress invited him over to dis’ our President? No one is free of their wrath, even Christians. See this from the LATimes of all places.

http://www.cbc.ca/news/opinion/israel-slippery-slope-1.4368018

The time has come to call the duck a duck. It’s time to agree with a long list of Israeli political leaders, academics and public figures on both the political left and right, including three former prime ministers, a winner of the Israel prize, two former heads of the Israeli internal security service Shin Bet, and one of the country’s principal newspapers, all of whom have warned that the Jewish state is becoming, or already is, an apartheid state.
