Canada Invests in 'Iron Dome' To Fend Off Rocket Attacks

http://www.cbc.ca/radio/thecurrent/the-current-for-november-13-20015-1.3...

"According to Israel, the Iron Dome defence system saves lives. Now, several other countries, including Canada are buying the technology for themselves. Canada signed a contract to purchase part of the Iron Dome radar technology with a delivery date of 2017."

No more worries about being hit by Hamas rockets Canada. And always good to give more money to Israel too..

Spanish Court Issues Arrest Warrants for Netanyahu and Senior Israeli Officials By Middle East Monitor Global Research, November 15, 2015 Middle East Monitor 14 November 2015 Region: Europe Theme: Law and Justice In-depth Report: PALESTINE

 2158    47  9    2433 mavi-marmara-freedom-flotilla

A Spanish court has issued arrest warrants for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other senior Israeli officials for their role in the 2010 attack on the Freedom Flotilla heading to Gaza, local media reported on Friday.

 

...the obvious question is, where is the Canadian justice system in all this? Were there not a least 2 Canadian victims involved and did they not try to initiate a court action in Canada? Is this being reported in the Canadian media?

What is clear is that a groundswell movement must grow in Canada that categorically rejects the media including and especially the CBC and the so called Canadian justice system...check out the latest outrage in the conviction of Arthur Topham for exposing a Jewish writers attempt at German genocide 1941!

Is Youtube in Cahoots With Israel To Censor Palestinian Videos?

"Representatives from video sharing YouTube and parent company Google have met with a high-ranking Israeli official to discuss ways in which 'inflammatory material' can be censored on the web.

Here is a nice story about the rights of Israeli Palestinians.  Apartheid is alive and well.

Quote:

A flight from Athens to Tel Aviv has been delayed for almost two hours after a group of Israeli Jewish passengers refused to fly with Palestinians on board, reportedly accusing them of being “terrorists”.

Aegean Airlines flight 928 was stuck on the tarmac on Sunday night as the altercation continued, with the Jewish passengers preventing the plane taking off by standing up until the two passengers they complained about were removed.

The Greek crew did not initially understand the cause of the dispute, Maariv newspaper reported, and continued with preparations as the two passengers from East Jerusalem were bombarded with accusations.

The complainants claimed the Israeli Arab citizens could be “terrorists”, according to Israel Radio, and demanded to search their luggage even after they had left the aircraft, but were refused by stewards.

War is Realizing the Israelizing of the World: Divide, Conquer, Colonize

http://original.antiwar.com/Dan_Sanchez/2015/12/21/war-is-realizing-the-...

"As US-driven wars plummet the Muslim world ever deeper into jihadi-ridden failed state chaos, events seem to be careening toward a tipping point. Eventually, the region will become so profuse a font of terrorists and refugees, that Western popular resistance to 'boots on the ground' will be overwhelmed by terror and rage.

Then, the US-led empire will finally have the public mandate it needs to thoroughly and permanently colonize the Greater Middle East. It is easy to see how the Military Industrial Complex and crony energy industry would profit from such an outcome. But what about America's 'best friend' in the region?

How does Israel stand to benefit from being surrounded by such chaos?"

Why I Use The Language of Race to Talk About Zionism

http://www.mediacoop.ca/blog/greg-williams/34341

"On June 30, last summer, Knesset member Ayelet Shaked called for the destruction of 'the entire Palestinian people,' including 'its elderly and its women, its cities and its villages, its property and its infrastructure.' In a statement that has now become infamous (even more so since Benjamin Netanyahu appointed Shaked as his minister of justice) she even advocated killing Palestinian mothers because they give birth to 'little snakes'.

The next day, Palestinian teenager Muhammad Abu Khudair was kidnapped and burned alive by six Israeli Jewish young people, and over the coming summer, the IDF murdered over five hundred Palestinian children duriung the Gaza massacre.

For the vast majority of Jews, for those of us who are young, who are poor and/or working people, who are queer and/or genderqueer, the racial bribe of Zionism simply isn't worth it, and the sooner we realize this and begin to craft our politics accordingly, the better.

We will never be emancipated by investing in the privileges that come from being citizens or potential citizens of a settler-state. [Or Two!] Rather, the key to Jewish emancipation is the same as the key to the emancipation of any other subaltern euro-american community which has been offered the racial bribe: to vehemently refuse it, and to settle for nothing less than the abolition of the system that has held it out, for the dismantle of all settler-states and the entire colonial-capitalist system.

From Ferguson to Baltimore, from Unist'ot'en to Elsipogtog, and, in Palestine, from the river to the sea, let us fight to make every single person free."

US Delegation To Visit Israel To Finalize New Military Aid Package

http://www.presstv.com/Detail/2016/01/19/446490/National-Security-Council-/

"A high-level American delegation is expected to visit Israel next week to work out the final details of a new 10-year military aid plan. on the top of the agenda, is the technical details of an approximately $41 Billion, 10-year military package, the Haaretz newpaper reported, citing a source involved in the talks.

Washington is currently providing Tel Aviv with $3.1 Billion in military assistance, annually and the new deal would likely increase that amount to $4.1 Billion. Israeli officials have urged Washington to increase the aid to $5 Billion.

The current aid is separate from the nearly $500 Million in annual US funding for Israel's missile system program in recent years. It is also on top of the US military equipment held in Israel, which is valued at $1.2 Billion.

Israel is the largest cumulative recipient of US foreign assistance since WWII. US military aid to Israel has amounted to $124.3 Billion since it began in 1962. Strong congressional [bribed] support to Israel has resulted in Israel receiving benefits not available to other countries."

Nasty piece of Trudeau bashing propaganda in that second link NDPP. So I ask you, what would Mulcair say? I would suggest that he would say about the same thing because we all know that he wouldn't say the opposite on Israel. Such as 'we don't have Israel's backs' or 'Israel doesn't deserve to exist', and other comments that would be direct contradictions of Trudeau's words.

But could we maybe suppose that Mulcair would say nothing? Would that be a possibility, in order to further our common cause of not legitimizing Israel's horrendous human rights abuses. 

Would you ask that Mulcair do that and then would you mount criticism against him for not saying enough? As you did just a few minutes ago on another thread.

NDPP, we must be honest between ourselves, all of us, and recognize that we can't change the rotten state of the world overnight. We can't pull together as the antiwar side against the Conservatives and their appeasement of the US war policies until we do.

any student of Mulcair´s NDP would tellyou exactly what he´d say....¨while we strongly support the Israeli´s occupation,its apartheid policies and genocide in Gaza, we recognize that people have the right to free speech,as long as they aren´t too revealing of the truth¨

Of course we can´t change the rotten state of the world overnight...therefore we must be careful with our strategyto never compromise our principles,build our movements from the ground up...enter into stragic alliances from time to time and never never enter into any kind of support for the mendaceous social democratic types, set up to always coopt whatever potential movement from the left!

And in fairness, Trudeau may have said too much during the campaign, for which he is being criticized now, he committed a ettiquette slip in his speech that is in question. I suggest that it was meant to be preceived as purposeful for the more perceptive amongst us who honestly care about such things.

Most likely the best we can expect is an abstention from Canada. Or maybe not even that. As some would say, and I say to the Liberals, keep your powder dry and wait for the world that opposes the US to be in a position to win the final battle against the apartheid state. The resolution would go a long way if it could get by the US but it won't and so no need to make a huge deal about it.

Benjamin Netanyahu Is An Obnoxious Loudmouth Jewish Supremacist  -  by Norman G Finkelstein

"The historical record shows that Israel's rights have not been prejudiced but in fact privileged by the international community. It has not been the victim but the beneficiary of a global double standard. Therefore, the thesis that a primal hatred of Jews accounts for its current pariah status cannot be sustained.

Is it not David versus Goliath when a tiny battered people does battle with the regional superpower backed by the global superpower? The sheer cruelty and heartlessness bewilders and boggles.

“Some sought to shoot the messenger — twisting my words into a misguided justification for violence. The stabbings, vehicle rammings and other attacks by Palestinians targeting Israeli civilians are reprehensible. So, too, are the incitement of violence and the glorification of killers.

“Nothing excuses terrorism. I condemn it categorically. It is inconceivable, though, that security measures alone will stop the violence. As I warned the Security Council last week, Palestinian frustration and grievances are growing under the weight of nearly a half-century of occupation.

“Ignoring this won’t make it disappear. No one can deny that the everyday reality of occupation provokes anger and despair, which are major drivers of violence and extremism and undermine any hope of a negotiated two-state solution.

“Israeli settlements keep expanding. The government has approved plans for over 150 new homes in illegal settlements in the occupied West Bank. Last month, 370 acres in the West Bank were declared ‘state land,’ a status that typically leads to exclusive Israeli settler use.

“At the same time, thousands of Palestinian homes in the West Bank risk demolition because of obstacles that may be legal on paper but are discriminatory in practice.

“Palestinians — especially young people — are losing hope over what seems a harsh, humiliating and endless occupation. Israelis are also reeling from near-daily attacks and losing sight of the possibility of a comprehensive peace with the Palestinians…

“We continue to work with Israel and the Palestinian Authority to rebuild Gaza and prevent another devastating conflict, and to press Palestinians for genuine national reconciliation. Of course, a lasting agreement between Israel and Palestine will require difficult compromises by leaders and peoples on both sides.

“Israeli authorities need to unequivocally support the Palestinian Authority and Palestinian institutions. This requires significant shifts in policies toward the West Bank and Gaza, while safeguarding Israel’s legitimate security concerns.”[3]

Netanyahu’s Knesset on a Tragic Trajectory By Anthony Bellchambers Global Research, February 04, 201

The coalition government of Binyamin Netanyahu is on a trajectory to oblivion because its Knesset members are so clever that in their arrogance they have made no provision for future generations.

It exhibits an extraordinary lemming-like agenda whereby Its citizens will eventually disappear without trace leaving only the curious artefacts of their political and moral bankruptcy.

In 100 years time, future indigenous Arab residents, will dig-up an Uzi machine gun and an old plutonium centrifuge casing from the Dimona nuclear weapons facility in the desert, and will no doubt remember the history of the inept regime of chosen people who used to strut their superiority around that place, in 2016, as their drones disseminated propaganda to a world that had already decided their fate.

As for current reality: the EU is nearly ready to implement a long-overdue, paradigm shift that will have huge political and economic impact upon the forces of illegal occupation in the current conflict.

    Palestinians Sue US Tycoons for $34.5 Billion over Jewish West Bank Settlements By Sputnik Global Research, March 09, 2016 Sputnik 8 March 2016 

    A group of Palestinians have filed a lawsuit for $34.5 billion against several US-based tycoons, charities and firms over their support of Israel’s settlements on the occupied territories of the West Bank, media reported.

    According to the Al Jazeera broadcaster, Palestinian activist Bassem Tamimi and 35 other Palestinians accused on Monday Las Vegas casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, philanthropist with interest in property in East Jerusalem Irving Moskowitz, megachurch pastor John Hagee and some other entities of financing the construction of Israeli settlements on the occupied territories.

    The lawsuit also names such companies as Dead Sea-based cosmetics maker Ahava, industrial powerhouse Israel Chemicals Limited, as well as religious charity Christian Friends of Israeli Communities, according to the broadcaster.

    No comments from their offices have been received.

    According to lawyers quoted by the outlet, the suit filed in the Federal District Court of Washington, DC will lead to a trial no earlier than in five years.

    In the long-standing conflict between Israel and Palestine, Palestinians seek recognition of their independent state, proclaimed in 1988, on the territories of West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip.

    Most of the areas claimed by the State of Palestine were seized by Israel in 1967 during the Six-Day War. The Israeli government refuses to recognize Palestine as an independent political and diplomatic entity. Israel has continued to build settlements in the occupied territories, prompting condemnation from the United Nations.

    Israel is moving forward with plans to drill for oil in the occupied Golan Heights, despite warnings that the move violates international law.

    For the last year, Afek, an Israeli subsidiary of the US firm Genie Energy, has undertaken exploratory drilling in the Golan. Afek believes there is a vast reservoir of oil under Syria’s Golan that could supply all of Israel’s energy needs.

    In September 2015, Afek announced it had discovered its first oil reservoir at one of the sites where it had been drilling.

    Last month, the company was granted the go-ahead to conduct more drilling in the Golan by the Israeli authorities.

    In response, Palestinian legal rights group Adalah and Al-Marsad, the Arab Human Rights Center in the Golan Heights, wrote to Yuval Steinitz, Israel’s infrastructure minister, demanding that the drilling permits be withdrawn.
