Nearly 50 Senators Want To Make It a Felony To Boycott Israel

Posted by Martin C. Fox on August 5, 2017

http://original.antiwar.com/Aniqa_Raihan/2017/08/04/nearly-50-senators-want-make-felony-boycott-israel/

The goal is to frighten people from engaging in the completely legal act of living out their values

That should have been the end of it. But now, Americans’ right to boycott is under attack once again – thanks to a vicious anti-boycott bill making its way through the Senate.

In particular, it appears to target the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement. BDS is an international movement calling on individuals, institutions, and governments to boycott Israeli products until it ends its occupation of Palestinian lands. The boycott is explicitly nonviolent and is supported by activists, celebrities, faith-based groups, and political and social justice organizations around the world. Read the rest of this entry »

JFK at 100 – LewRockwell

Posted by Martin C. Fox on May 28, 2017

https://lewrockwell.com/2017/05/paul-craig-roberts/jfk-at-100/

Kennedy entered office as a cold warrior, but he learned from his interaction with the CIA and Joint Chiefs that the military/security complex had an agenda that was self-interested and a danger to humanity. He began working to defuse tensions with the Soviet Union. His rejections of plans to invade Cuba, of the Northwoods project, of a preemptive nuclear attack on the Soviet Union, and his intention to withdraw from Vietnam after his reelection, together with some of his speeches signaling a new approach to foreign policy in the nuclear age (see for example here), convinced the military/security complex that he was a threat to their interests.

Foreign Country Interferes in US Politics – LewRockwell

Posted by Martin C. Fox on May 27, 2017

https://lewrockwell.com/2017/05/no_author/foreign-country-interferes-us-elections/

Those congressional actions instead illustrated the power of the pro-Israel Lobby, a highly organized and well-funded coalition that works to give Israeli leaders freedom to operate with unquestioned U.S. diplomatic, economic and military support. Its influence helps account for the quarter trillion dollars in aid (adjusted for inflation) that the United States has given Israel since 1948. Read the rest of this entry »

Not Remembering the USS Liberty – Consortiumnews

Posted by Martin C. Fox on May 24, 2017

https://consortiumnews.com/2017/05/21/not-remembering-the-uss-liberty/

It is safe to assume that when President Donald Trump lands in Israel Monday, he will not have been briefed on the irrefutable evidence that, nearly 50 years ago – on June 8, 1967 – Israel deliberately attacked the USS Liberty in international waters, killing 34 U.S. sailors and wounding more than 170 other crew. All of Trump’s predecessors – Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama – have refused to address the ugly reality and/or covered up the attack on the Liberty.

TGIF: The Real Danger from Trump Is Ignored | The Libertarian Institute

Posted by Martin C. Fox on May 21, 2017

https://www.libertarianinstitute.org/articles/sheldon/tgif-real-danger-trump-ignored/

a story with far more ominous implications is being ignored. I refer to Trump’s trip, beginning today, to Saudi Arabia and Israel.

The two most destabilizing countries in the Middle East are Saudi Arabia and Israel.

Once you grasp that concept you have a good start on figuring out who is the third most destabilizing country. Read the rest of this entry »

White House Close to Finalizing Over $100 Billion in Arms Sales to Saudis

Posted by Martin C. Fox on May 15, 2017

http://news.antiwar.com/2017/05/14/white-house-close-to-finalizing-over-100-billion-in-arms-sales-to-saudis/

Earlier this month, US officials said the US was seeking to reach “billions” of dollars in arms sales to Saudi Arabia as part of Trump’s visit to Riyadh. With a week left before the visit, officials now say the White House is very close to the deal, and that it will amount to over $100 billion in sales.

The same Saudi’s that financed 9/11 probably using US paid for resources. Read the rest of this entry »

Israel, The Gift That Keeps On Taking

Posted by Martin C. Fox on May 7, 2017

Just how afraid of Israel is Washington?

http://original.antiwar.com/smith-grant/2017/05/05/letter-from-a-mlaga-city-jail/

The following letter (original PDF) was obtained on May 4, 2017 by IRmep via the Freedom of Information Act (release letter PDF) from a classified FBI and Department of Homeland Security dossier. The letter was presumably sourced from an INTERPOL intercept.

It is an appeal for assistance written by convicted felon Richard Kelly Smyth to movie producer and self-confessed Israeli spy Arnon Milchan. Smyth had fled the United States in 1985 after being arrested and charged with smuggling. The letter (and other dossier documents) add details to the 2014 report published at Antiwar.com suggesting Smyth and Arnon Milchan along with Benjamin Netanyahu were knowing participants in the well-documented conspiracy to illegally smuggle krytrons, which can be used as triggers for nuclear weapons, to the Israeli Ministry of Defense via front companies. The letter also confirms Benjamin Netanyahu, the current Prime Minister of Israel, worked as Arnon Milchan’s employee at Heli Trading, the Israeli node of the smuggling network.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu successfully lobbied Secretary of State John Kerry to grant in 2016 a 10-year resident visa for Arnon Milchan to remain in the United States. The US Department of State currently refuses to release information about their secret negotiations or the State Department’s awareness of Milchan’s espionage activities on behalf of Israel before it granted the visa. – Grant F. Smith, IRmep Directo

The Israelis obviously needed the trigger material to go along with the uranium they stole from NUMEC in Pennsylvania. Read the rest of this entry »

CIA Fights Disclosure of Secret Aid to Israel

Posted by Martin C. Fox on April 24, 2017

http://original.antiwar.com/smith-grant/2017/04/23/cia-fights-disclosure-of-secret-aid-to-israel/

On September 11, 2013 journalist Glenn Greenwald revealed that the National Security Agency was pumping electronic intercepts of communications of American citizens to Israel, with no legally binding limits on how the data could be used.

The Trump administration has indicated that it will be slashing the US foreign aid budget, except for funding to Israel. This may make the percentage of total US aid received by Israel jump from an average of 9 percent over the past four years to 20- 30 percent or even more of the total foreign aid pie. This worries many within the Israel lobby who wish to obscure how disproportionate it has become. Read the rest of this entry »

The True Cost of Israel | The American Conservative

Posted by Martin C. Fox on April 14, 2017

http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/the-true-cost-of-israel/

Professors Stephen Walt and John Mearsheimer to ask, “Why has the U.S. been willing to set aside its own security … in order to advance the interests of another state? [No] explanation can account for the remarkable level of material and diplomatic support that the U.S. provides.”

Since the foundation of the state of Israel in 1948, it has been “the largest cumulative recipient of U.S. foreign assistance since World War II,”  according to the Congressional Research Service. The United States has provided Israel with $233.7 billion in adjusted for inflation aid between 1948 through the end of 2012, reports Haaretz.

the U.S. House of Representatives for significantly bolstering its support of U.S.-Israel missile defense cooperation in the FY 2017 defense appropriations bill. The House appropriated $600.7 million for U.S.-Israel missile defense programs.” And there is a long history of such special funding for Israeli-connected projects. The Iron Dome missile-defense system was largely funded by the United States, to the tune of more than $1 billion. In the 1980s, the Israeli Lavi jet-fighter development program was funded by Washington, costing $2 billion to the U.S. taxpayer before it was terminated over technical and other problems, part of $5.45 billion in Pentagon funding of various Israeli weapons projects through 2002.

In 1992, AIPAC President James Steiner bragged how he “got almost a billion dollars in other goodies [in negotiations with Secretary of State Jim Baker] that people don’t even know about.” 

 In September 2012, Israel’s former commander-in-chief, Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi, admitted at a conference that between 2009 and 2012 American taxpayers had paid for more of his country’s defense budget than had Israeli taxpayers


This fancy lady is too high maintenance. Time for a no-fault D.I.V.O.R.C.E.

Dominatrix AIPAC calls the shots in Washington. If you willingly submit the election skids are greased. If you don’t do as commanded you are out. 

The quickest way to lose your govt/media job is to say something against Israel.

The taste of Israeli bootleather must be sweet.

Americans Hardly Knew Any Israeli Secrets

Posted by Martin C. Fox on April 11, 2017

http://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/1.782616

According to a legend believed by the public and even in the government’s security branches, the Americans know – or can know – everything about Israel.

But a survey of the materials – much more than a sampling, but still partial – reveals the big CIA-Israeli secret: they knew hardly any secrets. A lot of gossip, false ideas, an analysis of political and social trends on the level of open journalism, the Knesset cafeteria or embassy telegrams.

That sums up our relationship with Israel.  We give, they take. Washington seems very happy being Israel’s cabana boy.

Remember the Liberty.
