Israeli Protesters Rally Against Africans in Tel Aviv  -  by Jason Dix

"...Ben Ari et al cursed Africans, hurled water at them, accused them of making Israel a 'living hell' and insisted that the elections should refocus on the issue of the mass expulsion of all Africans from the nation. The religious Shas Party, which had long made the goal of expulsion of Africans a centerpiece argument, is heading for the hills now, announcing that they are canceling a campaign video concluding with the promise that if Shas wins, 'not one Sudanese will remain."

AIPAC Aims to Play 'Major Strategic Ally' Card to Save Aid For Israel From US Cuts (and vid)

"Lobbyists want US to formally name Israel 'major strategic ally. US aid to Israel may be saved from sequestration and moved into the Pentagon budget. The annual conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) is reportedly focused on the congressional designation of Israel as a 'major strategic ally', of the US, a unique status what would be enjoyed only by the Jewish state.

The move is seen as facilitating Israel's military action against Iran's alleged nuclear weapons program, which also appears on the conference agenda..."


Israel Launches Segregated Bus Service

"A 'Palestinians Only' bus line is launched in Israel after settlers complain Palestinians are a 'security risk'. 'Creating separate bus lines for Israeli Jews and Palestinians is a revolting plan,' Jessica Martell, director of the BTselem rights group, said on Army Radio - 'This is simply racism, such a plan cannot be justified with claims of security needs or overcrowding.' Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said all Palestinians returning to the West Bank would be searched for stolen property, describing this as a routine Israeli precaution..."

Rethinking South Africa   -  by Mazin Qumsiyeh (and vid)

"...Ronnie Kasrils, South African minister once said about Palestine: 'This is much worse than apartheid...Israeli measures, the brutality, makes apartheid look like a picnic. We never had jets attacking our townships; we never had sieges that lasted month after month. We never had tanks destroying homes.'

Archbishop Desmond Tutu, a Nobel Prize winner who hosted the Truth and Reconciliation Committee said Israel has established an apartheid system and thus has engaged in crimes against humanity."

Extremist Rabbi Dov Has Widespread Support

"...So who is this great popular rabbi, you ask? By his rulings shall we know him. According to Dov's interpretation of Halacha: sperm donation by non Jewish men will result in a baby with 'negative genetic traits,' since 'gentile sperm leads to barbaric offspring'; employing Arabs or renting and selling them homes is prohibited; the Jewish terrorist Baruch Goldstein is 'as holy as the Holocaust saints'; and it is permitted to kill 'allegedly innocent' civilians..

It must be emphasized that Dov Lior is not at all an exception..."

Prayer For Israel in Canada's National Capital

"...Brig-Gen Eden Attias, the Israeli Ministry of Defence Attache to Canada, represented the government of Israel. For twenty-eight years, Brig-Gen Attias was in active service in Israel, and most recently served as the 'Nevatim' Air Base Commander in the southern part of Israel. He, more than most has experienced the intensity of Israel's enemies' hatred firsthand. At the prayer gathering he said,

'On behalf of the Ambassador of Israel, HE Miriam Ziv, and myself and all the people of Israel, I would like to extend a sincere appreciation to you, the Evangelistic community here in Canada for supporting Israel. Your community is part of that essential backbone, in times of peace and especially in time of war, this support is vital and serves as a testament of our unity and belief in our righteous way.'

Israeli Violence on International Women's Day  -  by Stephen Lendman

"Police state harshness reflects official Israeli policy. Palestinians are ruthlessly targeted. On March 8, Israeli Security Forces stormed the Al Aqsa mosque. It wasn't the first time. It won't be the last. They did so on International Women's Day. They commemorated it violently. More on that below...."


Israel And the Looting of Arab Natural Resources

"In just a few weeks, Israel plans on extracting gas from the 'Tamar' and 'Leviathan' gas fields, which were discovered dozens of kilometers into the waters northwest of Haifa.

Obama Marks Iraq War Anniversary With War Summit in Israel  -  by Ben Schreiner

"A decade after the American-led invasion of Iraq, the US is once again preparing to set the Middle East ablaze. In fact, President Obama will touch down in Tel Aviv - ten years to the day 'shock and awe' was first unleashed for what appears to be little more than a war summit with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu..."


Return of the Living Dead  -  by Pepe Escobar

"...Now it's double tragedy and double farce, all over again. Yet even Nepalis building glitzy towers in Dubai know that the 'Bomb Iran' hysteria is Tel Aviv's tactic to change the subject from the relentless land confiscation/ethnic cleansing in slow motion in Palestine and consequently the de facto impossibility of a two-state solution.

Here, Jonathan Cook succinctly details the frankly scary political configuration in Israel after the recent elections. The Israeli website Ynet has reported that Israeli settlers can't stop hailing their brand new 'wet dream' cabinet.."


Israel's leader has announced the restoration of normal diplomatic relations with Turkey after apologizing for the deaths of nine Turkish activists in a 2009 Israeli naval raid on a Gaza-bound international flotilla.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Friday that he had expressed regret during a phone call with his Turkish counterpart, Recep Tayyip Erdogan. U.S. President Barack Obama helped arrange the call shortly before leaving Israel.


Israel's Defence Attache to Canada, Brig-Gen Eden Attias, formerly CO of IAFB Nevatin, had 'command and control' involvement in both the Mavi Marmara attack and Operation Cast Lead. Of course Israeli warcriminals are untouchable. Especially in Canada...

Then again, both sides can negotiate, without preconditions, a binding, two-state solution that would render the settlements question moot.


One side will not negotiate without preconditions and that has been the problem for over a decade. In the meantime they keep stealing more and more land and resources from the rightful owners.

Barbara Boxer, AIPAC Seek To Codify Israel's Right to Discriminate Against Americans  -  by Glenn Greenwald

"To accommodate this desire to discriminate, Boxer, Blunt and AIPAC are now attempting to create a special exemption for Israel from the requirement to which all other countries are bound, and by which the US will be bound vis-a-vis Israel. More amazingly, the only purpose of this exemption from these US senators would be to allow Israel to discriminate against the citizens of the country these senators are supposed to represent.

As Mike Coogan of the US Campaign to End Israeli Occupation wrote in the Hill this week, 'given that Israel views the mere existence of Palestinians as a threat, the Boxer-AIPAC bill would essentially codify Israel's discrimination against Palestinians, Muslims and Arab-Americans into US law.."

Diaspora Jews Must Speak Out  - by Sam Bahour

Medical Racism: Israel Hospital Director Complains That Too Many African Babies Are Being Born

Natural Gas Shortage Adds to Gazans'Woes (and vid)

Especially in Canada and the silence of progressives on the appointment of the Zionist warcriminal Israeli Defence Attache to Canada, Brig-Gen Eden Attias, for his role as former Commander of IAFB Nevatim, and involvement in both Op 'Cast Lead' and the Mavi Marmara attack. When will progressives demand his immediate expulsion?

Israel Bars Muslims from Entering Al-Aqsa Mosque (and vid)

"A large group of settlers protected by Israeli forces, entered the al Aqsa mosque compound in Jerusalem Al Quds and prevented Muslim worshippers from entering the mosque..."


Despite the fact that Jordan's Parliament has no power and only the King can make a formal request this is still significant.  Our Western media certainly does not report on Israel in an unbiased manner.  I doubt if Jordan's dictator King will abide by the unanimous vote given he is owned lock stock and barrel by the NATO imperial powers.


The Jordanian Parliament voted unanimously on May 8 to ask the government to expel Israel’s ambassador to Jordan, Daniel Nevo, in protest at what the members of parliament say are Israeli violations during incidents at the Masjid al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem. 

Earlier on May 8 Israeli soldiers prevented Palestinians from going into Masjid al-Aqsa on the occasion of the “Jerusalem Day." Five Palestinians were wounded due to clashes and those who were barred from entering the mosque held a protest by performing noon prayer at the entrance gates.

Members of the Jordanian Parliament described the incidents as “Israeli violations.” Jordan’s Prime Minister Abdullah al-Nasour said that the government was discussing retaliation for what he called “Israel’s evil plans.”


The decision of the parliament is constitutionally non-binding until ratified by King Abdullah II.


Israel's Ethnic Cleansing of The Naqab Underscores Meaning of 'Jewish State'

"By pursuing the toxic policy of ethnic cleansing in the Naqab, Israel has unwittingly exposed what it really means by a 'Jewish State' - a state where non-Jews will remain 'unrecognized' without legal rights. Already denounced as 'racist' by the UN, it would only generate support for the threatened Bedouins.

The continuation of this travesty makes it all the more imperative to reject any call for the recognition of Israel as a 'Jewish' state. That would be a blueprint to 'transfer' and complete the final chapter of the Palestinian Nakba."

ICC Investigation into Israel's Crimes Significant (and vid)

"Press TV has conducted an interview with Paul Larudee, from the Free Palestine Movement about the International Criminal Court launching a preliminary investigation into Israel's deadly attack on the Gaza Freedom Flotilla in 2010."

The Canadian tie-ins are that Canadians were on board and also the naming by Turkish intelligence of Brig-Gen Eden Attias, Israel's resident Defence Attache to Canada, who was CO of IAFB Nevatim at the time and participated in the operation. Attias was also cited as one of the 'dirty 200 list' of Israeli war criminals for his role in Operation 'Cast Lead', the attack on Gaza.
