Israeli Jets Strike Gaza After Rocket Fire Pinned on Hamas (and podcast)


"Witnesses reported at least four airstrikes in the Gaza Strip, early Monday conducted by Israeli F16 jets while drones were seen circling the airspace."

Israeli authorities are blaming the rocketfire on an 'ISIS affiliated group' in Gaza. This is clearly designed to manufacture consent for another 'grass-mowing' in Gaza by Israel.


West Bank Violence Flares, Hundreds of Palestinians Clash with Israeli Forces


"Severe clashes between Palestinians and Israeli forces in multiple parts of the West Bank."


Israeli Forces Demolishing Palestinian Homes in East al Quds


"Israeli forces have razed to the ground homes belonging to Palestinians in the East al Quds after Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered the intensification of attacks against Palestinians. The demolitions came after Netanyahu instructed his cabinet members to speed up the demolition of Palestinian homes.

Netanyahu also called for the deployment of more troops in East al Quds and ordered a harsh crackdown on Palestinians active on social media. There have been increasing clashes between Israelis and Palestinians over Israeli settlers storming of the Al Aqsa Mosque..."


Jersusalem Descends Into Blood-lust


"Israel is not a normal country. It is not a western country. It is not a democratic country. It is a country steeped in blood. We are descending into the maelstrom.

Any of you who defend or support such a state thirsty for blood, watch this video and see what you are supporting. And do not say it is the product of a hooligan mob unrepresentative of the rest of the country. This mob IS the country. The country has collapsed into brutality and murder. It is sickening."

And Canada, you continue to help in all of this...

As Canada, Israel and US Object, UN Votes To Let Palestinian Flag Fly At New York HQ


"The UN General Assembly overwhelmingly approved a resolution Thursday calling allowing the Palestinians and Holy See to raise their flags at UN headquarters - a symbolic step pursued by the Palestinians in their quest for an independent state.

Israel strongly objected to the proposal and joined seven other countries including Canada and the US in voting 'no', 119 nations voted 'yes' and 45 abstained..."


Who Controls Canadian Elections - Canadian People Or the Israeli Lobby Or Israel Itself?


"The pervasive and bludgeoning reach of the Zionist lobby seems to have reached new heights. (or lows) To ask Palestinian-Canadians and their supporters to vote for any party that is clearly complicit in the trampling of human rights, with the faint hope that after the elections things will improve, simply will not cut it.

All three major parties need to be sent a loud and clear message that Palestinians and their supporters will not be censored and Palestinian rights will not be trampled on so easily.

We must all show that there is zero tolerance for hypocrisy and complicity with Israeli war crimes!"

Israel Lights the Touchpaper at Al Aqsa Again -  by Jonathan Cook


"Since a boy named David slew the giant Goliath with a slingshot, the stone has served as an enduring symbol of how the weak can defeat an oppressor.

For the past month Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu has tried to rewrite the Bible story by declaring war on what he terms Palestinian 'terrorism by stones.'

The situation at al Aqsa has come to symbolise in painful microcosm the Palestinian story of dispossession..."


Hamas Leader in Gaza Declares Intifada As Israeli Troops Kill Palestinians


The leader of Hamas in Gaza has labeled the ongoing violence in al Quds (Jerusalem) and the West Bank an 'intifada', as six Palestinians were shot and killed Friday while protesting at the border fence.

In a sermon for Friday prayers at a mosque in Gaza City, Ismail Haniyeh said

'We are calling for the strengthening and increasing of the intifada. It is the only path that will lead to liberation. Gaza will fulfill its role in the Jerusalem intifada and it is more than ready for confrontation.'





Electronic Intifada



Intifada: The Writing Was On The Wall  -  by Gideon Levy


"...Given this state of affairs, the current crisis sits squarely at the doorstep of the international community. The time has arrived to change the rules of the game for the international community as well.

Whoever now continues enabling Israel to run amok while taking no real steps to end the occupation, will also bear responsibility for the next round of violence."

Isaeli Protesters Hold Large Anti-Netanyahu Demonstrations


"Thousands of Israeli protesters have staged a massive rally to protest the recent spate of clashes between Palestinian people and Israeli troops, demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

On Saturday evening, the demonstrators converged in front of Netanyahu's residence in al Quds (Jerusalem) to denounce the spiraling violence in the occupied West Bank and East al Quds as well as the Tel Aviv regime's failure to bring the situation under control.

The protesters shouted 'Bibi, go home!' and criticized Israeli authorities for their provocations against Palestinians. Similar anti-Netanyahu protests were staged in other Israeli towns."

Israeli Forces Shoot to Kill Palestinians: Richard Silverstein (and vid)

'The only answer they have is force and more force,' the analyst said. Expressing his dissatisfaction over the sluggish response by the international community toward the Palestinian issue, the analyst said it seems that the world would not wake up to the Israel atrocities unless genocide on a large scale happens."

Looks like Canadian politicians have decided to err on the side of pro-Zionist silence. Of course many who might have said something have been taken out already..

Chris Hedges: What it truly means to be a Socialist



Israel Calls A Man Its Soldiers Killed A 'Terrorist': Until They Realized He Was An Israeli Jew  -  by Glenn Greenwald


"...When they thought he was a Palestinian Arab, he was labelled a 'terrorist', and then as soon as they realized he was an Israeli Jew, the label was instantly withdrawn for that reason along, even though the conduct was the same. That's the manipulative, malleable concept of 'terrorism' in a nutshell.

As Rudy Giuliani put it in 2007 when asked whether waterboarding was torture: 'It depends on who does it.'"


Jordan To Israel: Don't Change Aqsa Mosque Status


"Amid continued Israeli provocations in the occupied territories, Jordan, the custodian of the al Aqsa Mosque compound in East al-Quds has warned the Zionist regime against trying to change the status quo of the holy site.

Israel has been applying sweeping restrictions on entry into the compound since August 26.

The comments by the Jordanian king echoed a resolution by the UN cultural body UNESCO on Wednesday, which likewise blasted Tel Aviv's 'attempts to break the status-quo since 1967,' its restrictive measures on the compound and  the Israeli 'aggression' against Palestinian worshippers."

Israel And The Rotten Soul of The West (Canada especially)


"This conflict is not and never has been about Israel's right to exist or Israel's security. It is not and never has been about Hamas or its Charter. It is not even about a two-state or a one state solution - at least not anymore.

It is about whether we take a stand on the side of an oppressed people or with their oppressor..."

Standing Against Colonialism & Oppression: Third Intifada or Global Intifada?  -  by Catherine Shakdam


"With Palestinians raging against Israel's encroachments on their rights, faith and lands, many have seen the premise of a third Intifada. And yet this Palestinian resistance bears the future of a grander, broader movement - one which stands against fascism.

Undoubtedly, Israel has crossed the Rubicon, this unfathomable line where a people's paranoia and self-taught rejection of the 'other' devolved into hatred of all people.

This madness, this rejection of Judaism's teachings of non-violence and self-sacrifice for the greater good, surely is the product of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's fascist and imperialist ideology.

This time Palestinian Intifada, this third Intifada clerics have already called for could rise a regional movement against fascism..."


Sputnik #094 : George Galloway Interviews David Hearst on Third Intifada (and vid)


"For almost half a century of occupation, Palestinians have risen up to stave it off. The Third Intifada appears to have broken out. David Hearst has peerless knowledge and experience in reporting on this struggle, the former editor of the Guardian and now the editor of the highly respected Middle East Eye joins Sputnik.

'Unfortunately and alas the situation only changes through violence.'


"Hizballah is creeping up on Israel’s Golan border, relying on Russian military coverDEBKAfile Exclusive Report October 23, 2015, 10:01 AM (IDT)"

I can only wonder, if true, would this seriously divide Israeli forces from their camapigns to repress the increasing violence. Would Hezbollah be in position to threaten Israel re its ongoing attacks?


 Israel seeks an opportunity to seize more of the Golan under the pretext of a 'buffer zone' to protect itself from hostilities ongoing on the Syrian side of the border. Of course Golan is Syrian although occupied by Israel. Large petro deposits have very recently been discovered there.  Hezb is busy fighting ISIS in Syria and wouldn't be risking a move into Golan unless in response to Israeli moves to consolidate or expand their reach deeper into Syria. If so we will soon have confirmation.

Israel Must End Unlawful Killing of Palestinians; Amnesty International


"Amnesty International has censured the Tel Aviv regime over killing Palestinians with intentional lethal force and without justification in the occupied West Bank.

"Israel has no more right to 'self defense' against Palestinians than Germans had a right to self defense against the French or other partisan resistances in WWII. As Nazareth based journalist Jonathan Cook points out in a recent article: 'Israel is occupying and besieging Gaza, conferring on its inhabitants a right under international law to fight for their freedom.

How does the oppressor, the lawbreaker, have a right to self-defense? If Israel objects to being scratched or bruised, it should stop choking its victims.'  - Steven Gowans, What's Left


Israeli Rapper, The Shadow and Fans Celebrate Jewish Dead   -  by Richard Silverstein


"...I've written a number of times here when faced with such Israeli abominations that I'm really not sure a nation of such people deserves to survive. Even if it does, I'm not certain there's enough humanity among those who aren't infected with this cancer to carry on...

Is a nation shorn of all decency worth surviving?"

Criminalization of Anti-Israel Activism Escalates, This Time in the Land of the Charlie Hebdo 'Free Speech' March   -    by Glenn Greenwald


"The French high court upheld the criminal conviction of 12 political activists for the 'crime' of advocating sanctions and a boycott against Israel as a means of ending the decades-long military occupation of Palestine.

What did these French ciminals do? This:

'The individuals arrived at the supermarket wearing shirts emblazoned with the worlds "Long live Palestine, boycott Israel." They also handed out fliers that said that "buying Israeli products means legitimizing crimes in Gaza."
