Why High-Profile Businessman Mitch Garber is Bullish on Israeli Economy
"Mitch Garber addresses a State of Israel Bonds gathering in Montreal on Feb 2o. Garber, who walked away with a US$210-million payout from the $4.4-billion sale of a large part of CIE to a Chinese consortium in 2016, is bullish on Israel's high-tech sector, especially in the area of cyber-security. He has an Israeli passport and visits the country every six to eight weeks, Garber told the State of Israel Bonds New Leadership Division on Feb 20.
'There are a lot of misconceptions about doing business in Israel, even among Jews,' Garber said. 'When I started, my Jewish friends said it would be terrible, the Israelis are so arrogant...But this is a good confident arrogance that comes from their Israel Defence Forces experience.' He said that compulsory military service produces men and women who are 'independent, self-sufficient, capable of dealing with adversity, all of which are valuable traits for a entrepreneur.'
New Leadership Division co-chair Israel Steckler said, 'In my opinion, one of the best ways to fight BDS is through investment in the State of Israel."

Trump Mega Donor Sheldon Adelson May Bankroll US Embassy's Jerusalem Move
"The Trump administration's plan to move its Israeli embassy to Jerusalem from its current location in Tel Aviv has been encouraged by billionaire casino magnate Adelson. He has repeatedly offered to bankroll at least some of the operation, the Associated Press reports. Adelson, a close friend of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, has since pressured Trump to make the move, particularly in light of the millions of dollars the billionaire has given to the Trump campaign."
Israel Lobby Pressures Qatar To Kill Al Jazeera Documentary
"Two extraordinary events have come together to place Al Jazeera in a vise-like squeeze that may result in the death of a major TV documentary expose about the power and operations of the Israel lobby in the US. This could be yet another lesson in the suffocating political power of the Lobby in national politics. When Israel or the Lobby come under attack nothing must stand in the way..."
The Coming Wars To End All Wars
"The Trump and Netanyahu governments have a problem: How to start a greatly expanded Middle Eastern war without having a justifiable reason for one. No doubt they are working hard to solve this urgent problem. If they can't find a 'justification' (which they can't), they will have to create one (which they will)."
"Jews who beat an African refugee for an hour and a half in front of city hall, killing him and kicking his face until it was unrecognizable, aren't convicted of murder 'due to the difficulty in proving which one of them had caused his death."

Israel Detains 10 Members of Nabi Saleh's Tamimi Family, Mostly Minors
"Israeli forces Monday detained 10 members of the extended Tamimi family during wide-scale raid and inspection operations in the village of Nabi Saleh, northwest of the city of Ramallah in the occupied West Bank, according to Pakistan security services. The village of Nabi Saleh has been the project of intensified Israeli raid and arrest operation ever since Ahed Tamimi, 17, was detained for confronting Israeli soldiers who had forced their way into her family home." - Hanan Ashrawi
"War Is Coming To Southern Lebanon" - Lindsey Graham Warns Israel Is Planning An Invasion by Tyler Durden
Wed, 02/28/2018 - 12:20
Along the Israeli-Lebanon border, it's about to get 2006 all over again.
At least that's what Senator Lindsey Graham told reporters late Tuesday at a press conference with Democratic Sen. Chris Coons - with whom he sponsored a bipartisan immigration bill that ultimately failed to garner enough support from their fellow lawmakers. The press conference was called to share details about a bipartisan trip last week to the Middle East.

Canadian MPs Take Lobby-Sponsored [CIJA] Trips to Israel
Israel is by far the most frequent destination country of MP travel. 'Federal ethics rules say it is illegal for lobbyists to do anything that puts an MP or government official in even an appearance of a conflict of interest, and paying for an MP's trip that costs thousands of dollars definitely crosses that line. ' Duff Conacher - Democracy Watch.

Documentary: The People of Israel vs Ahed Tamimi
"The documentary paints a portrait of a family, the Tamimi's that has become the target of the Israeli military and an object of hatred by right-wing Israelis."
** Israeli Parliament Endorses Final Version Of 'Jewish Nation-State' Bill **
"After seven years of delays, the Israeli governing parties have agreed to the final terms of controversial new legislation that would define Israel as exclusively 'the nation-state of the Jewish people.'
The bill is now expected to be fast-tracked through the Israeli parliament and on the statute books in the coming weeks. It effectively blocks any chance for Israel's large Palestinian minority - one in five of the population - to reform Israel in the future into a normal, western style democracy..."
Israeli Chief Rabbi Calls Black People 'Monkeys'
"...During his weekly sermon, the rabbi used a derogatory Hebrew term for a black person, before going on to call a black person a 'monkey', according to footage published by the Ynet news site.

What about it Canucklheads? What about it NDP?
Bernie Sanders one of the few, if not the only, North American politician to condemn the massacre.
Will the NDP have a response? Will Jagmeet Singh, a person who claims to be a great supporter of human rights, make a statement on this latest crime?
I expect he will and that it will be a weak and wimpy one like Sanders who terms the cold blooded targeted executions by IDF snipers 'tragic'. Singh did all he could to block a very mild BDS resolution. Hardly expect he'll find his balls on this one.
Here's what a real left leader would be saying:
"Former Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams has called for Ireland to expel the Israeli ambassador over the killing and wounding of Palestinian protesters. 'There can be no justification or excuse by Israel for the calculated slaughter by Israeli military snipers of unarmed Palestian protesters..."
Never mind expelling Russians who haven't done anything. Kick out the Israeli ambassador I call upon Jagmeet Singh and the NDP to demand it!
Singh responds. And it’s not bad.
We will now see if actions follow words...
Ahed Tamimi Sexually Harassed by Israeli Interrogator, Says Lawyer
"The lawyer of imprisoned Ahed al Tamimi has accused an Israeli interrogator of sexually harassing the 17-year-old Palestinian girl, who was arrested last December from her home-town of Nabi Saleh village in the occupied West Bank for slapping an Israeli soldier on camera. Gaby Lasky filed a complaintn with the Israeli general attorney on Monday. Lasky described the behaviour of the interrogator, who is an officer in the military intelligence unit Aman, as a 'gross violation of the law' amounting to sexual harassment..."
