Shlaim Shills For Empire  - by Max Ajl

http://www.maxajl.com/?p=4650

"'America' does not give Israel money, nor does America give Israel 'money': It routes American taxpayer money through the Israeli territory, where it lands back in the American military-industrial complex, with 25 percent of it allowed to stay in 'Israel' where it contributes to building up the 'Israeli' defense industrial base, most of which is listed on American stock changes and owned by American or Israeli-American investors.

The Lobby is the force that pushes for American acquiescence to settlement building. But it gets that acquiescence, in spite of the fact that other sectors of power wish otherwise, because it provides services to American and global capital, keeping the Middle East destabilized, with high oil prices ensuring maximal profits for oil majors, those same oil profits wending their way into the coffers of the same companies, and all of it tied up nicely with the Israeli-Gulf Cooperation Council push for the Middle East Free Trade Area, meant to ensure the dominance of neoliberal capitalism in the Middle East."

ta ta - the Canada-Israel Free Trade Agreement.  Lotsa shill for empire here too in this - Canada -as - 'consulate for Benjamin Netanyahu' - across the official political spectrum too. No wonder the evil Ottawa talkshop, just as with NATO and Afghan agonies -   won't open their mouths for the dead and dying children of Gaza. Bad for business.

UK Feared Israel Would Use Nukes Archives Reveal

http://www.jpost.com/International/Article.aspx?id=201663

"A diplomatic cable from the UK Embassy in Tel Aviv, dated May 4, 1980 warned ' the situation in the region is deteriorating and with it Israel's dangerous mood of isolation and defiance will grow. If they are to be destroyed they will go down fighting this time. They will be ready to use their atomic weapon. Because they cannot sustain a long war, they would have to use it early...'

When Thatcher told Begin, that his West Bank Settlement policy was 'unrealistic' and 'absurd', his reply was 'Judea and Samaria had been Jewish in biblical times and that they should therefore be so today.."

Abu-Rahma laid to rest

Quote:
Jawaher Abu Rahma, who died less than 24 hours after participating in a protest against the West Bank separation fence at Bilin, was buried Saturday afternoon in her village. Abu Rahma was the sister of Bassem, who was killed at similar Bilin protest in 2009, and Ashraf, who was shot by an IDF soldier when his hands were cuffed.

Report: The Dangerous Road to Education: Palestinian Students Suffer Under Settler Violence and Military Negligence

http://www.operationdove.org/

"Since 2001, Israeli settlers from Hovat Ma' have routinely attacked the children on their journey to and from school, but it was not until November 2004 that Israeli authorities established a daily military escort. Despite the Israeli military escort, the children have been victims of violence 104 times between November 2004 and June 2010.."

Quote:

The serene liberal loves to be appalled by the right's racism. He feels so righteous at such moments. But the older form of racism, that of Vilnai and his ilk, can actually teach us something about its origins.

The religious-popular brand of racism always reflected powerlessness: The government preaches power, but when it has no power, the margins are able to take advantage of this worship of power, whether it's called "deterrent power" or "national pride."

The vacuum of weakness is filled by shrieking. And a lynching grants each of its participants a "military" role: He doesn't think, but he's important. He obeys orders from a higher power, and it speaks for him.

Two years ago, Lieberman's star was rising: "He says what everyone thinks." That's a fascist motto. That's exactly how Rabbi Meir Kahane rose from the ashes of the failure in Lebanon, back in 1984, after the Sabra and Chatila massacres. He, too, said "what everyone thinks."

 

Israeli leftists have a racist past, too

The Great Islamophobic Crusade  -  by Max Blumenthal

http://www.atimes.com/atimes/Middle_East/LL23Ak01.html

"This network is obsessively fixated on the supposed spread of Muslim influence in America. Its apparatus spans continents, extending from Tea Party activists here to the European far right. It brings together in common cause right-wing ultra Zionists, Christian evangelicals and racist British soccer hooligans.

It reflects an aggressively pro-Israel sensibility, with its key figures venerating the Jewish state as a Middle Eastern Fort Apache on the front lines of the global 'war on terror' and urging the US and various European powers to emulate its heavy-handed methods"

Israel said it would keep Gaza near collapse: Wikileaks

Quote:

"As part of their overall embargo plan against Gaza, Israeli officials have confirmed to (U.S. embassy economic officers) on multiple occasions that they intend to keep the Gazan economy on the brink of collapse without quite pushing it over the edge," one of the cables read.

 

Israel wanted the coastal territory's economy "functioning at the lowest level possible consistent with avoiding a humanitarian crisis," according to the November 3, 2008 cable.

That was about 6 weeks before they decided to have a little humanitarian crisis after all, by invading and bombing Gaza and murdering 1400 Palestinians.

The IDF kills 1 Palestinian civilian every 2 days, on average, with impunity
Quote:

From 2006 to 2009, the IDF killed 1,510 Palestinians, not including Palestinians killed in Operation Cast Lead. Of these 1,510 deaths, 617 were of persons who were not taking part in hostilities.

Imagine if an Israeli were killed every couple of days in Palestine.  The bombs would never stop falling on Arab heads.

How Canada Subsidizes Illegal Israeli Settlements  -  by Yves Engler

http://www.counterpunch.org/engler01142011.html

"Canadian organizations can openly fundraise for settlements Ottawa (officially) deems illegal under international law and gets the government to pay up to a third of the cost through tax credits for donations...Ottawa makes it difficult for Canadians to support many Palestinian groups all the while subsidizing expansionist and militaristic Israeli institutions. Canadians of good conscience should protest and demand change."

Furthermore the only Israeli terrorist formation listed, the Kahane Chai, has significant ties to the Jewish Defence League Canada, which operates freely here. Why?

Israeli Banks Finance Newspaper Calling For Genocide

http://www.alternativenews.org/english/index.php/topics/israeli-society/...

'Major Israeli banks, credit institutions and communication companies are among the advertisers in an extreme right-wing magazine that called for building concentration camps. An Israeli Jewish Orthodox magazine 'Ma'ayanei Hayeshiva' (Fountains of Salvation), that is distributed freely in hundreds of synagogues all across the country has been the center of attention after calling in its editorial for the concentration of Arabs in extermination camps.

In the article, published on December 25, 2010, the editors attack rabbis who refused to support the call against renting apartments to Palestinians and accuse them of being too cowardly to follow the biblical command of wiping out the people of Amalek (Palestinians). This blunt call for a genocide against Palestinians is now new in publications of the Israeli extreme right, but this is the first time it appears in a 'family' magazine with prominent advertisers.."

Israel's Right Wing Future  -  by Lawrence Davidson

http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article27285.htm

"However you want to title it, Sternhell's message is clear. He is very concerned about Israel's right wing government. He thinks the present regime is controlled by dangerous people such as Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman and a Knesset full of folks who believe that the Israeli 'left' are traitors...

A real problem for Sternhell is that Avigdor Lieberman and his Knesset proteges are more representative of Israel than either he or liberal journalist Gideon Levy. Indeed, not just the traditional 'left' but those who fancy themselves as 'liberals' are just about done for in Israel. Some of them knew it and are packing their bags to leave. This process has been building for some time and it makes perfect sense. You see, Zionism really is racism.

If you are one of the few on the inside who decides to criticize the process, the fanatics will turn on you with a vengeance. After all, there is nothing worse than a traitor to the sacred cause. This is exactly the present situation in today's Israel."

It depends on how you wish to define "right". It's a rather different paradigm than in Canada. There's the "right" with regards to security policy, etc., exemplified by Likud and Yisrael Beteinu and then there's the "religious right" exemplified by Degel HaTorah and Agudath Yisrael (operating together as United Torah Judaism). The religious right's main concerns are both issues of religious law and getting massive amounts of government money to support their schools and Torah studying lifestyle. THe reason the last coalition governmentn under Livni collapsed was because the religious right pulled their support over Livni's lack of support for housing subsidies. Given that the "Charedi" (ultra-orthodox) sector is by far the fastest growing demographic with birth rates multiple times that of the rest of the country, they will soon become the dominant force in Israeli politics.
