Israel

TEXT: Israel-US Memorandum of Understanding signed 16 January 2009

(Posted on Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs, here is the text signed on the eve of the Israeli unilateral ceasefire for the 22 day Gaza attack, and just three days before the inauguration of President Obama. Please note, in order to appreciate some of the lies built into this document: The Hamas government was ELECTED by the overwhelming majority of Palestinians who live under Israeli brutal military occupation. Also, Israel has no recognised borders, except the borders defined by the illegal wall, and Israel still occupies parts of Syria and Lebanon since 1967)

Outraged by the cold-blood killings of Palestinian children and women in the Gaza Strip, Israeli soldiers are growing disillusioned with Israel's claim of self-defense against Palestinian "terrorists" in the bombed-out strip.

"It's not a war of defense," paratrooper Yitzchak Ben Mocha told the Guardian on Saturday, January 17.

"We are creating a thousand suicide bombers for the future from the brothers of the dead, the sons of the dead ... in the long term, we are creating more terror."

The 25-year-old soldier has refused to join the army in its deadly offensive in Gaza, home to 1.6 million people, to stop the Palestinian rocket fire.

WeAreChangeLA challenges diehard Israel supporters about Hamas

WeAreChangeLA's Bruno (that's me) asks diehard Israel supporters questions that challenge them to look at their own hard line beliefs. At one point, an unnamed man begins terrorizing the crowd, asking them to clear the area because an unattended backpack has been found in the bushes.

Please watch the Part 2 video to the end and see the payoff after a passionate discussion about Palestine, the Mossad, conspiracies, and finally the controlled demolition of the Twin Towers.

Unusually Large U.S. Weapons Shipment to Israel: Are the US and Israel Planning a Broader Middle East War?

Unusually Large U.S. Weapons Shipment to Israel: Are the US and Israel Planning a Broader Middle East War?

A very large delivery of US weaponry to Israel consisting of 3,000 tons of "ammunition" is scheduled to sail to Israel. The size and nature of the shipments are described as "unusual":

"Shipping 3,000-odd tons of ammunition in one go is a lot," one broker said, on condition of anonymity.

"This (kind of request) is pretty rare and we haven't seen much of it quoted in the market over the years," he added.

"Shipping brokers in London who have specialized in moving arms for the British and U.S. military in the past said such ship charters to Israel were rare. (Reuters, Jan 10, 2009)

The Pentagon has entrusted a Greek merchant shipping company to deliver the weapons to Israel:

"The U.S. is seeking to hire a merchant ship to deliver hundreds of tons of arms to Israel from Greece later this month, tender documents seen by Reuters show.

Annie Lennox and Brian Eno Stand Tall for Gaza in the UK -- In the U.S., the Congress rolls over for AIPAC

"Our voices will not be silenced until there is a complete and absolute end to the genocide."
- Annie Lennox, January 10, 2008

In a London rally estimated by organizers to be 100,000 strong, people in the UK spoke out loudly against Israel's incursion into Gaza, with the former lead singer of the Eurythmics, Annie Lennox standing tall and proud;

In his typical subdued but thoughtful fashion, the legendary Brian Eno also called for an end to the violence;

Ron Paul on Senate Floor 1/9/09: Israel Created Hamas

Just as the Mujahadeen were trained by the CIA to defeat communists, only to later become our enemy when they started "blowing back," the same is true of Hamas and Israel. I never looked at the Israel/Hamas situation quite this way before, but Dr. Paul makes alot of sense.

The Invasion of Gaza: "Operation Cast Lead", Part of a Broader Israeli Military-Intelligence Agenda By Michel Chossudovsky

The Invasion of Gaza: "Operation Cast Lead", Part of a Broader Israeli Military-Intelligence Agenda

Global Research, January 4, 2009

The aerial bombings and the ongoing ground invasion of Gaza by Israeli ground forces must be analysed in a historical context. Operation "Cast Lead" is a carefully planned undertaking, which is part of a broader military-intelligence agenda first formulated by the government of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon in 2001:

"Sources in the defense establishment said Defense Minister Ehud Barak instructed the Israel Defense Forces to prepare for the operation over six months ago, even as Israel was beginning to negotiate a ceasefire agreement with Hamas."(Barak Ravid, Operation "Cast Lead": Israeli Air Force strike followed months of planning, Haaretz, December 27, 2008)

It was Israel which broke the truce on the day of the US presidential elections, November 4:

Israeli Wiretappers, the NSA, and 9/11

(James Bamford has done another great deed for the public by revealing the extent of the NSA's wiretapping on U.S. soil, and how the NSA sub-contracts the vast majority of its work to Israeli high-tech firms bristling with "former" Israeli military intelligence agents, and in the case of Verint, a company with serious corruption issues. It was Bamford who popularized the existence of Operation Northwoods in his 2001 book, Body of Secrets. In The Shadow Factory, he sheds light in the secret rooms of Verizon and AT&T, and shows the NSA to be a very poor custodian of the nation's security.)

Bamford Brings the Goods

On October 14, 2008, James Bamford talked about some of the shocking research in his new book on Democracy Now!, with Amy Goodman;

Whatever Happened To Western Morality? Are All Americans Guilty?

I found this article by Paul Craig Roberts and thought I'd share it. It's not specifically about 9/11, but considering Mr Roberts is one of our most credible supporters, it seemed worthy of post. Peace all.

Whatever Happened To Western Morality? Are All Americans Guilty?

On the last day of the old year in CounterPunch, two Israelis, Jeff Halper who heads the Israeli peace movement ICAHD and Neve Gordon who is chairman of the department of politics and government at Ben-Gurion University, asked, "Where's the Academic Outrage Over the Bombing of a University in Gaza?"

"Not one of the nearly 450 presidents of American colleges and universities who prominently denounced an effort by British academics to boycott Israeli universities in September 2007 have raised their voice in opposition to Israel's bombardment of the Islamic University of Gaza earlier this week," report Halper and Gordon. They note that Columbia University president Lee C. Bollinger, who has in the past ignorantly insulted Islamic representatives, "has been silent."

ISRAEL STOP NOW!!!

US gives Israel free reign on whether to invade Gaza

The "politicians" (that's really the nicest word I can think of... I can think of SO MANY words that are not nice) in this country DO NOT speak for the people. At the very least, they do not speak for me. You DO NOT have my permission to continue what you're doing in the Gaza Strip, and you DO NOT have my permission to send in ground troops.

The Gaza Strip

I think Israel should stop immediately. The United States should use its influence to make them stop. I do not understand why peace can not be achieved. Both sides of the equation have the ability to put their guns down and talk. There HAS to be a peaceful solution. Whatever that is, I hope they find it soon. The following are a collection of articles from my site dating back to 2/7/2005. Everything that has happened recently started here, but ended up here. This is every article with the word "Gaza" in it.
