Jerusalem for All.

The violent events of the last weeks in Jerusalem from stabbing to premeditated targeted killings to planting of knives next to Palestinians after being shot and killed should tell us few things. Israel is unfit and unqualified to mange and run the city. The PLO failings in Oslo also make it unfit and unqualified to represent the interests of Palestinians in the city.

That Israel, contrary to its marketed slogan “ the only democracy in the Middle East” is a racist xenophobic country and never a country for all of its citizens. That the Palestinian leadership of the PLO is a self serving, corrupt, inept organization not trusted to represent, let alone protect the life and rights of those it claims to represent. That nothing short of providing international protection for the Palestinians population of Jerusalem, certainly in the entire Occupied Territories will do. That the US as party to the conflict is never to be trusted as fair and honest broker.

The Palestinians under Israeli Occupation are “damn if you do and damn if you don’t”. While all nations and people have an absolute and inalienable right to resist foreign occupation including armed resistance, Palestinians are the only people and nation denied such rights. Any form of resistance is seen as “acts of terrorism”, sanctioned by the PLO, Oslo and the United State.

All official Israeli armed acts and the acts of criminal trespassing settlers are deemed “self defense” no matter what are the circumstances, including targeted assassinations, detentions without charges, house demolitions, acts of arsons and cold blooded murders, uprooting, burning of hundreds of thousands of olive trees, confiscation of properties and denial of access to one land and farm. The Palestinians are denied any rights of self-defense let alone any rights of resistance to the Israeli Occupation. Keeping in mind the Palestinian Authority and leadership role is a commercial and security partner with the Israeli Occupation.

For over 48 years, since the Six Day War, Palestinians in Jerusalem have been suffering from daily Israeli practice of discrimination and ethnic cleansing, supported for the most part by wealthy Jewish Americans using tax exempt organizations to confiscate Palestinian properties under the pretenses of being “Jewish” properties. Israeli courts for the most part allow falsified and fraudulent deeds in support of such criminal activities as we have seen most often in the Jerusalem neighborhoods of Sheik Jarrah and Bab-Alamoud.

The violent events of the last several weeks, while not a full fledge Third Intifada is an expression of pent-up anger and frustration over the ethnic cleansing that has seen over 80,000 Palestinians losing their residency in Jerusalem and the confiscations of their properties. Palestinians in Jerusalem are denied the basic right of building or adding rooms on their own properties, while Israeli Jews are allowed not only to steal the land but also build on it.

Since the founding of Israel and prior to the 67 War, Jerusalem, as we know it today, was divided by barb wires with East Jerusalem under Jordanian control and West Jerusalem under Israeli control with some minor UN presence.

It was only after the Six Day War that Jerusalem was united under total Israeli control, formally annexed to Israel shortly after the end the war.

Israel moved quickly and swiftly to consolidate its control over East Jerusalem making dramatic and drastic changes in the city demographic, totally destroying entire Arab neighborhoods as was the case with “ Maghreb Quarter” near the Dome of the Mosque.

Declaring the unified city as its eternal capital of Israel began to use a series of dubious laws as legal means to ethnically cleanse the city of its Arab residents. First it denies Palestinians their rights of residency under many pretenses and then uses “absentee laws” to officially steal and confiscate their properties.

The violent events of the last few weeks while not rising to a full fledged uprising or Intifada, it is an expression of anger and frustration over the treatment Palestinians receive at the hands of Israelis both soldiers and settlers.

While not denying the fact that some Palestinians in the absence of any rights to use arms to resist have resorted to “knifing” as a mean of expressing their anger and frustration with scores of Israeli suffering from such attacks.

Israel and Israelis taking full advantage of the “knifing” and the wide coverage in America and international media, began to plant knives next to murdered Palestinians. There are many videos out their clearly showing the planting of knives to justify the cold-blooded premeditated murders.

By now and after 48 years of total control over Jerusalem, Israel proved over and over is not a fair and honest trustee of a city of both Jews and Arabs (Christians and Muslims), its policies are so discriminatory it disqualifies it from managing unified city.

On the other hand, and not withstanding empty statements by the late Yasser Arafat and his successor Mahmoud Abba, Jerusalem and its Arab residents was never a priority, never received the necessary material support to help Arabs fight Israel’s onslaught on their very existence in the city.

The Palestinian leadership never translated its words to on ground deeds to help Arab residents fight to stay. Little if any legal support was given to the Palestinians to help them fight expulsion or confiscation and demolition of their properties. The cost of one international trip by Mahmoud Abbas and his entourage perhaps could have covered all the legal costs and fines. The Palestinian PLO leadership just like Israel is not qualified to represent and guard the interests of Arabs in the city.

While recognizing the efforts of the Organization of Islamic States to provide material support to Arab residents, it falls short of the massive comprehensive plans needed supported by a UN Security Council resolution. One also has to admit the difficulties the Organization of Islamic State face in support of those remaining in the city.

As Chairman of the Organization of Islamic State’s Committee on Jerusalem King Mohamed VI of Morocco has taken upon himself the difficult task of champion Jerusalem and the rights of the Arab citizens (Christians and Muslims) and with much appreciations, funded and continues to fund several projects to help Arab residence remain in the city.

Last year His Majesty held an international conference of member’s states specially to address the needs of both the people and the city emphasizing the importance of maintaining the Arab, Muslim and Christian character of the city.

While appreciative of the great efforts by His Majesty King Mohamed VI in supporting the city, the events of the last few weeks necessitate the urgent need for an international conference on Jerusalem, a “Jerusalem for All” that not only keep the city unified under international agreement but preserve the unique qualify of the city and its special status as a holy city for Jews, Christians and Muslims.

It will be worth while to explore such an international conference, supported by a UN Security Council resolution, and His Majesty King Mohamed VI with his good standing among the people of all faiths, is well qualified to take the lead in calling for such conference, inviting the leading and heads of all faiths and denominations, Jews, Christians (including the Pope) and Muslims (Sunnis and Shiites) and world leaders to such conference, a conference that guarantees, respect and preserve the rights of all citizens in the city and preserve its unique historical structures and heritage, a city open to every one of all faiths and united for all of its citizens, a Jerusalem for All.


Mahmoud Abbas at the UN. It is a “Fart” not “Bombshell.

30 09 2015

Mahmoud Abbas, whose terms as President of the Palestinian Authority expired few years ago, the Chairman of the PLO, President of Fatah spoke at the UN, denounced Israel for its failings to honor the terms of Oslo Accord, warning the PA will no longer honor its obligations under Oslo. Wow what a bombshell!

Well, his statement at best was a “fart” and not the bombshell that he and his cronies been talking about and promising for the last few weeks.

Arafat, Abbas and the PLO Executive Committee knew well that Oslo was not about liberation, nor about Jerusalem certainly not about the rights of refugees to return home. It was a commercial, administrative and security agreement between Israel as a state and the PLO as an organization.

Arafat, Abbas and the PLO leadership desperate to save their “ass” after supporting Saddam invasion of Kuwait, needed drastic measures to replenish the tens of billions looted during their tenures and the consistent failings of its policies. To keep the PLO relevant decided to open “secrete” channels with Israel.

Yitzhak Rabin was desperate to save his “ass” with front pages and headline news of brave young Palestinians facing heavily armed Israeli soldiers with tanks, heavy armored vehicles. The First Intifada must come to an end and Rabin knew Arafat was desperate too.

Arafat and Rabin interests, each for his own purpose met in Oslo where Arafat, Abbas and the PLO snuffed and ended the First Intifada and the PLO secured for itself a management and security contract that will keep the leadership and their bank accounts alive and well, and Rabin got rid of his nightmare.

As the main contractor for the Israeli Occupation, the PLO took it upon itself to take over All of the Israeli financial obligations as manager and administrator of the Occupied Territories and Israel succeeded in having the PLO through its security forces to act as an “auxiliary” unit for the IDF, providing support for the IDF and protection for the criminal Israeli Settlers. Over the course of 23 years, the PLO was able to save Israel over $55-60 billions.

Meanwhile, Israel taking full advantage of the lopsided Oslo Accord, continued with its ever expanding settlement policies providing financial incentive to Israelis to move and settle in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, continued with its systematic expulsion of tens of thousands of Palestinians resident of Jerusalem, and solidifying its hold and chock on what remained of Palestine, building it Apartheid Wall.

Gaza which Israel evacuated because of high security expense it provided for the 5,000 land thieves, decided to continue with its punishment of Gaza, with constant systematic destruction of Gaza in several wars and keeping the siege and blockade of Gaza.

Mahmoud Abbas threat of not honoring the terms and conditions of Oslo Accord is little too late. Israel has been violating the terms of Oslo since day one, yet Arafat and Mahmoud Abbas continued honoring their own side of the bargain. There were too many financial incentives for the PLO to do otherwise.

Mahmoud Abbas been threatening to do this for a long time. But he and his cronies know better. Mahmoud Abbas, the PLO and Fatah could never give up Oslo with all of its personal and financial benefits to the Palestinian leadership. Even if Abbas decided to opt out of Oslo there are many of the PLO leaders waiting in the wings to take over and continue in the service of Israel, no different from the Vichy government of France in the service of the German Occupation.

Mahmoud Abbas is only maneuvering to go back to the negotiating table (peace process) to save face, knowing the US and Israel will move ahead to open direct or indirect negotiations, without ever giving up settlement buildings or lifting all 550 security check points. Abbas was able to hoist the flag at the UN but is unable to lift one single security checkpoint.

If Mahmoud Abbas was serious about his “bomshell” he would have brought with him and submitted formal letters from the PLO abrogating its contractual and security obligations to Israel under Oslo, submit the same to Israel, to the US, Russia and the UN. He knows better no body takes him seriously, not Israel not the US certainly not the Palestinians.


Disband the PLO-NOW

Israel's separation barrier

Israel’s separation barrier

Five years after the creation of the Palestine Liberation Organization by the Arab League, Yasser Arafat took over the organization and turned it from a “liberation organization” to a “closed criminal enterprise”, serving the leadership and failing the Palestinian people at every turn.
Yasser Arafat

The late Yasser Arafat

Instead of liberation, Yasser Arafat and his cohorts returned to Occupied Palestine to manage the Israeli Occupation.

The world had no choice after years of neglect and total disregard for the Palestinian people’s right of freedom and independence, but recognize the Palestinian people as a national entity — short of recognizing their right to return from exile or for their own free and independent state in Palestine.

It was not the Palestinian people who voted for the PLO as their “sole legitimate representative”, but the 1974 Arab Summit in Rabat that gave the PLO such international legitimacy. This came about after a bloody mini war in which armed Palestinian factions challenged the sovereignty of King Hussein over Jordan.

Soon after this recognition by Arab heads of states, most of whom lacked legitimacy, Arafat traveled to the UN to give his famous speech, with the UN following suit by giving the PLO “observer” status as “representative of the Palestinian people”.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas speaks during a press conference on the Palestinian parliamentary elections in Ramallah, January 2006.

It was not until November 30, 2012, when the UN General Assembly voted to recognize Palestine as a “state”. However full sovereignty was left to Israel to give the Palestinians such states in accordance with the agreement negotiated and signed by both Arafat and Abbas. Palestine is an “observer state”, lacking votes or flag.

Full sovereignty and full rights must be voted on in the UN Security Council where the US can exercise its veto. The vote by the UN General Assembly recognizing the “state of Palestine” did not change anything on the ground, nor the disenfranchised status of millions of Palestinians in exile, waiting to return.

Israel continues to occupy the “territories”, exercising full military, demographic and economic powers. Even after the Oslo Accord, Israel has shown no interest in giving up what remained of historic Palestine.

After twenty years, hundreds of thousands killed, tens of billions looted and stolen, Oslo was the best that Arafat, Abbas and the PLO could deliver to the Palestinian people. This amounts to a perpetual occupation.

The PLO killed; snuffed the First Intifada; failed the Second; killed the Two State solution; killed the One State solution; and succeeded in having a perpetual contract to manage the Israeli Occupation. This is not so great an achievement for a “liberation” organization.

Oslo as negotiated, was a management and service contract between the PLO and Israel, whereby the PLO took over managing the civil affairs of the people and worse yet, pays for it; while Israel retained total control over the land, the people and the water. Oslo was a betrayal of the people and the Palestinian cause — an act of treason.

Under the terms and conditions negotiated in Oslo, Israel retained total security control over the entire Occupied Territories with the Palestinian Security Forces, acting as an auxiliary force to the Israeli IDF and Shin Bet. The AP Security Forces could not protect a chick or a tree, let alone a life, as we have seen many times.

Arafat and Abbas committed to the safety and security of Israeli citizens armed and unarmed to the tune of $1.4 billion annually, far exceeding the joint budgets of education, health, transportation, social services and infrastructure.
Construction of the wall

Construction of the wall

The Oslo Accord was a financial windfall for both Israel and the PLO/Fatah leadership. Israel was able to save at least $2 billion a year, the cost of running the territories. Israel made good use of the saving, granting each illegal settler $28,000 in annual subsidies.

On the other hand, all those who failed at liberation came back with Arafat and Abbas to manage the Israeli Occupation, and taking full advantage of the culture of corruption, nepotism, personal loyalties, and ineptness that characterizes the tenure of Arafat and his successor, Abbas.

Many senior and mid-level political and security operatives became multi-millionaires, benefiting from business opportunities, kick-backs, racketeering, or other illicit activities.

Within a few years, they became rich, owning properties in the Occupied territories, in Cairo, Amman, and the UAE among many places — living the lifestyle that no sitting Israeli official dare afford. Many became owners of NGOs, getting tens of millions in funding to produce papers talking about the Occupation, but falling short of doing something to end the Occupation. Oslo became a business for many inside and outside of Palestine.

Keep in mind that Oslo created a legal entity, the Palestinian Authority, (PA) that “separated” the people under the Israeli Occupation from the refugees and in the Diaspora. As such, the PLO became a name only, with no legal or basic function other than giving Israel legitimacy, and with Abbas having total control over all budgets and finance — the basis of his power and legitimacy.

Which brings us to the recent calls by Mahmoud Abbas to convene the Palestine National Council (PNC), supposedly, the Palestinian Parliament representing Palestinians under Occupation and those in the Diaspora.

It is clear Abbas’ intention is to consolidate his absolute control, get rid of challenges, and pass the reins of corruption and incompetence to one of his cohorts.

It should be noted here that the PNC was never an elected body, and all of its members are selected by the Chairman of the PLO, the Executive Committee and Central Committee of the PLO; and the appointments are in accordance with a quota system designed to give Fatah the majority of seats.

The PNC’s significance was in the fact that, as a so-called “parliament”, it was never debated or voted on in Oslo. Even the PLO Central Committee never debated about Oslo, nor ratified Oslo. The 18 members of the PLO Executive Committee ratified Oslo after the fact.

The PNC has no power, real or imagined — it acts as a rubber stamp with no value or importance, a shameless “Parliament”. It abdicated all of its responsibility to the people whom it is supposed to represent.

Arafat, the fraud and manipulative con artist, made sure that he controlled all so-called “institutions” designed to perpetuate his control and that of his successors, and limited real changes that might have put the people in charge. He, like Abbas, made sure there is distance between the leadership and the people when it comes to real issues and decisions that affect the people and liberation; thus it is the PLO Executive Committee that approves everything. The Executive Committee is appointed, and never voted on by the people.

http://www.veteranstoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/gaza.jpg
IDF attack on Gaza 2014

Hence in the entire history of the PNC, there was never any real debate on, let alone sanctions against, the many disastrous decisions made by Arafat, Abbas, and the PLO Executive Committee in Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, nor in Kuwait, where tens of thousands lost their lives, and where tens of billions of dollars were lost.

There was never a debate over Oslo and all of its failings, then and now. In fact the PNC did not meet for over 20 years. The PNC is nothing but a shameful sham.

Keep in mind, the Palestinian body that received Bill Clinton in Gaza (1996) — passing by show of hands nullifying the Palestinian National Charter, giving recognition to Israel and denying the right to resistance and self-defense — was hardly representative of the PNC, but rather a bunch of “personalities” herded in as straw men for a tragic show orchestrated by Arafat and Abbas.
Abbas estate

Abbas estate

Both Arafat and Abbas, treated the the people of Palestine with neglect and contempt, and made sure Israel recognized the PLO as “representative of the Palestinian people”, but never recognized the State of Palestine. The PLO gave Israel full and unconditional recognition over all of Palestine with Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, with no right of return for the refugees.

A full recognition for a fist full of dollars. The Palestinian people deserve this contempt for their silence and for their failure to force a change of a leadership that had sold out.

Arafat and Abbas structured these “Palestinian Institutions” in such a way, making it difficult for any changes to come from the people directly or indirectly, and making it even more difficult for any accountability or changes of the “leadership” by the people except the members of the mafia family, the Executive Committee. Even this Executive Committee for the most part has no say so.

More important, Arafat and Abbas made sure that any group trying to find an alternative to the PLO will face a wall of legal challenges by the PLO, Israel and the US, all of whom are quite satisfied with the present situation in Occupied Palestine and with the PLO leadership and as the manager.

Arafat and Abbas secured life perpetuity for the PLO when Israel recognized the PLO, thus denying any group of Palestinians (outside of the PLO structure) the right to sit at the table as a replacement or as an independent party.

A Failing Grade

Many beneficiaries of the PLO and the PA will argue that Arafat, Abbas and the PLO leadership did great things for the Palestinian people by gaining international recognition, with many countries recognizing the State of Palestine.

However, the real achievement is not in New York or London or Paris; the real achievement is on the ground — and here Arafat, Abbas and the entire PLO leadership and Executive Committee a get a big F.

Since Oslo, more than 600,000 settlers moved to the Occupied Territories; more than 450 miles of Apartheid Wall were erected; more than 800,000 olive and fruit trees were burned or uprooted by the Israeli Army and the armed criminal settlers.

More than 7,000 Palestinians were killed and murdered; more than 17,000 homes and structures were demolished; and more than 11,000 existing demolition orders are awaiting execution. More than 400,000 Palestinians were arrested and jailed, with thousands remaining in jail without trial. Gaza was totally destroyed three times and remains under total siege, with 80,000 Palestinians exiled from Jerusalem.
http://www.veteranstoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/checkpoint.jpg

Palestinian checkpoint to pass on the way to work

More shameful and disgusting is the way the PLO leadership benefits from the 3,000 or so Israeli-issued VIP passes that allows senior PLO and Fatah officials to zip through the more than 550 security checkpoints, while millions of people, young and old, have to wait hours, if not days, to pass through humiliating metal gates like cattle just to get home or visit neighbors or attend their fields or get to a hospital.

Yes, the PLO leadership achieved great things for itself; benefiting from corruption and nepotism, benefiting from business projects funded by the “international community”, in which key personalities receive shares and kickbacks without paying a dollar; benefiting from land deals as a result of inside information on zone changes and largesse bestowed by Mahmoud Abbas, who rewards loyalty and incompetency.

Oslo allowed for the creation of the Palestine Legislative Council (PLC) representing a people under Occupation; financing and budget is left to the Chairman of the PLO, who exercises full and unchecked control over all funding with no accountability or transparency.

Abbas refused to allow the elected PLC even to formally convene, making sure all decisions are passed through the Executive Committee, which votes as he demands.

I can only laugh when defenders of the PLO talk about “institutions” that must be preserved and protected, and about international gains achieved. In the end, the Palestine Liberation Organization was never a “liberation” organization, but a racketeering mafia that failed at liberation and succeeded in managing the Israeli Occupation by paying for it and stealing from it. Did the hundreds of thousands who died appreciate the way things turned out?

Notwithstanding all the legal, political challenges and difficulties, the Palestinian people, at least those in exile or Diaspora, must organize into a “legal entity” that can, over time, secure the legitimacy from the very people it supposes to represent. It must do this through membership and direct votes and challenge a corrupt and failed PLO, then take the challenge to Israel to gain either freedom and independence, or one state for all of its citizens.

Iran Nuclear Deal. Israel in the driver seat

25 08 2015

Sami Jamil Jadallah

When it comes to the Iran Nuclear Deal it is not the American public that will make the decision. The fate of the Iran Nuclear Deal is in the hands of Israel, its Fifth Column and in the hands of Israeli officials past and presents both pro and against the deal and Obama administration knows that very well.

The American public has been incited against Iran for a long time especially since the taking of American hostages (November 4, 1979- January 20, 1981) when American media set aside a special nightly program against Iran at the expense of all other national and international events. With a lingering anger about the hostage taking the general American public is lukewarm about the deal 28% v. 24%, while American Jews showing strong plurality for the deal 49% v.31%.

However at no time Ted Koppel nightly broadcast, ever-mentioned Israel’s deliberate cold-blooded murder of 34 sailors and civilians on the USS Liberty and the wounding of 171 sailors.

Against this background, Israel is the key player and decision maker on whether Congress will approve the deal and whether Congress can override an expected presidential veto.

Tens of millions of dollars have been committed, both for and much more against the deal funded mainly by AIPAC and associated organizations such as Citizens Against Nuclear Iran, United Against Nuclear Iran, Citizens for Nuclear Free Iran, with American Jewish multi millionaires and multi billionaire throwing a ton of money (more than $40 millions) trying to buy votes Congressional votes. At this moment it is neck and neck with the President of the United States loosing the comfortable margin he needs for his expected veto.

The administration desperate for votes has enlisted the help of American Jewish leadership with some 340 Rabbis announcing support for the deal and more are expected to announce their support this coming September when the Orthodox Union will try to bring hundreds of Rabbis to Washington.

The on going public debate for the most part specially on nightly news, features Israeli officials past and present. While President Obama is doing his best to secure support in Congress, Bibi Netanyahu personally and through the Israeli ambassador in Washington have been strongly lobbying Congress to vote against the deal with the Israeli ambassador secured meeting with 60 members of Congress in the last month.

Former members of the Senate the likes of Norm Coleman, Saxby Chambliss, Evan Bayh are following the lead of former Senator and Rabbi Joseph Lieberman who is leading the fight to defeat the deal in Congress.

On the other hand major former Israeli intelligence and military officers have been coming out in support of the deal.

Among those is the former head of the Mossad, Efraim Halvey “the attempt to change the rules of the game and to include further demands from Iran in the agreement, such as recognition of Israel and stopping support for terrorism shows that Netanyahu has no interest in the agreement whatsoever”.

Giving support to his counterpart, the former head of Shin Bet, Ami Aylon cam out in support of the deal, “ the deal achieved in Vienna is the best possible alternative from Israel’s point of view, given the other available alternatives.” Continuing to state, “ When it comes to Iran nuclear capabilities, this deal is best option”.

While members of Congress think they can get a better deal neither for Israel nor for America of course, have been raising issues of the competency of the technical team that helped negotiate the Iran Nuclear Deal.

Countering such claim is non other than Yitzhak Ben Israel, the Chairman of Israel Space Agency and the Chairman of the National Council for Research and Development in the Ministry of Science, Technology and Space “ there is a dialogue of the deaf, the agreement is not bad, at all, even good for Israel.”

It is yet to be seen whether America’s national security and world security will determine the outcome of the vote or whether Israel once again determine American’s national security and interests through its agents in Congress.

The debate as we have seen is hardly among and between Americans; it is almost exclusively among AIPAC, Israeli officials, certainly between members of the American Jewish community. In the end, the vote in Congress is not about Iran Nuclear Deal it is all about which comes first America or Israel. Remember that next November.


Israel: They Burn Babies. Don’t They?

2 08 2015

Couple of days ago, in the Palestinian village of Duma, Ali Dawabsha, 18th months old toddler died as a result of an arson committed by criminal Israeli settlers, who deliberately torched the house while the family was asleep. Ali’s mother and father are in critical conditions with burns over 80-90% of the bodies.

This is not the first time, certainly will not be the last time that these Israeli criminal trespassers and Jewish terrorist will torch and set fire to people, homes, farms, churches and mosques. They do it with impunity under the ever-watchful guards of the Israeli Defense Forces. Simply put these Jewish trespassers and criminal get way with murder and more.

On July 5, 2014, young Israeli “settlers” kidnapped 16 years old Palestinian, Mohamed Abu Khdeir, he was burned alive after he was forced to swallow gasoline and was torched and murdered.

Israel is a country that successfully marketed itself to the Congress, the media, Hollywood, Evangelical Christians as the Only Democracy in the Middle has an ugly and shameful history of terrorism, and racism and total disregard for “justice” as it applies to non-Jews.

Since 1967, under both Likud and Labor Israel, committed itself to the actual and on ground annexation of the West Bank and Gaza and has done that through “settlement building” generously funded national budget supported by generous funding from American tax exempted organizations “ settlements” built on stolen and confiscated Palestinian land.

Contrary to International Law and the Geneva Convention (who gives a damn about international laws but the weak and weasel) Israel and since its agreement with the PLO leadership in Oslo has made expanding these settlements a priority, with the numbers reaching almost 800,000. Since Oslo Israel added 650,000 rewarding the PLO/PA for its generous financial and security support of the Israeli Occupation.

Israel use many legal, and illegal means to confiscate the land labeling and classifying the land as absentee owners (after evicting the owners), military training ground, or added security for Jewish settlements, only with the intention to confiscate and rob Palestinians of their land.

Not only Israeli laws matter, but also G-d laws matter more. Many Israeli and beyond them Diaspora Jews believe the Bible is the Deed that gives the Land of Israel to the Jews. As such many of these settlers truly believe they have God’s deed and that is why when committing arson they leave behind a painted Star of David and the slogan” Long Live the Messiah King”. I never knew G-d was a partner in land theft.

There are hundreds and hundreds of cases where these criminal trespassers (in Christian Evangelical country these Jewish settlers would be shot dead on the spot) and with generous funding from gambling, pimping and Bingo games have nothing to do all day but to harass, attack, kill torture and burn alive Palestinians from neighboring villages. These terrorist thugs do not even work.

Jewish settlers did not spare Palestinian Christian’s from their wrath, recently on June 18,2015 they torched the most famous Catholic Church in all Palestine the “the Church of the Multiplication of the Loaves and Fish in Galilee.

Few weeks before and on February 26, 2015, these criminal trespassers torched and burned the Jerusalem church serving Palestinian Christians. On October 30, 2010, these Jewish terrorists torched and burned down the Palestinian Bible College.

Not sure if any one cares to tell the likes of Reverend Billy Graham or Pastor John Hagee, or the Reverend Pat Robertson of these attacks on their fellow Christians. But then these committed supporters of Israel are only interested in the in-gathering of the Jews for the Rapture when the Jews of the time will be put to death or convert to Christianity.

Criminal settlers did not spare any thing, they torched century old Olive trees, burning tens of thousands over the years, poisoning water wells, killing life stock all under the ever watchful and guarding eyes of the Israeli Defense Forces. Hardly any one face criminal charge!

What happens is not an exception; these criminal and terrorist acts are supported in every way by instruments of the State of Israel. It gives the stolen land, it funds the construction, it provided water (stolen too) and electricity, transportation and assign large contingency of IDF to serve and protect and it arms and give them military training and equipment.

While Israel hardly ever prosecute, let alone arrests these criminal it passed on July 22, 2015 it passed a law that could send Palestinian “stone throwers” up to 20 years in jail and prosecutors can get 10 years convection even if there was no harm.

Yes, indeed, this is the country where tens of thousands of our police force were sent to train only to treat American citizens as potential terrorists implementing the doctrine that Americans like Palestinians are potential terrorists. Welcome to God’s Country.


FIVA Amerikana; The Bribery Season

7 07 2015

Last May, the newly appointed attorney general Loretta E. Lynch, announced a 47 court indictment unsealed in Federal Court in Brooklyn indicting 14 top executives of FIFA.

The unsealed indictments were the joint efforts of the FBI, the IRS-Criminal Investigation Division accusing the defendants with a range of crimes from wire fraud, racketeering to money laundering.

The figures involved were some $150 millions, which these top executives were accused to have taken in bribes from sport promoters. Well that is quite interesting. The Justice Department brings indictments because these guys took bribes to support certain venues and certain events, while overlooking the substantial bribes political candidates receive as a matter of routine, business as usual.

How all of this differ from the American election cycles when candidates seek billions not millions in political donations and contributions from big time rich people?

I am sure the issues here have every thing to do with candidates supporting certain public, financial and economic issues that the donors are pushing for.

Consider this.

Last April 2014, mega billionaire Israeli/American gambling mogul Sheldon Abelson summons Republicans presidential contenders to his headquarters in Sin City ( Vegas) where they “prostrated” themselves before him in what the Atlantic calls “The Sheldon Adelson Suck-Up Fest”.

The likes of Jeb Bush, John Kasich, Scott Walker and Chris Christie rushed to Sin City to pledge allegiance to Sheldon Adelson and to his only issue and agenda Israel, perhaps he threw in banning of online gambling, perhaps legalize prostitution, pimping, and even drug trafficking as part of the deal, only to make it “domestic” issues.

Not sure what would any one call this, but I called it ‘bribe” no different from the money the FIFA executive allegedly took from the sport promoter.

Why should we make a distinction between private citizens who take ‘bribes” to promote or act on a certain business transaction and not called it a “bribe” and haul them to jail, when politicians take in tens of millions from donors with pledge to support a cause or act on a legislation that benefit the donors. I am sure many agree with me on these issues.

Recently Hillary Clinton, perhaps the most famous or infamous of the “suck up” to Israeli/American Zionist mogul also pledged to give full and unconditional support to Israel. Her sponsor is Haim Saban who with Sheldon Adelson takes the roles of owning both the Republican and Democratic parties.

Hillary Clinton needs to raise $ 2 billions from her Pro-Israel Jewish friends to make a successful run for the presidency.

However not all of the “bribes” comes from rich Israeli-American moguls. The Koch Brothers are also known to pour in hundreds of millions into political super PAC.

Recently these rich guys (Oligarchs) who really and totally control our government celebrated the 4th anniversary of Citizen United, the Supreme Court ruling which gave corporations and unions unlimited and unrestricted rights to “bribe” political candidates.

Just imagine that someone running for a state office needs to raise at least $500,000 (bribes) from donors to even have a chance of winning.

In this country of ours, issues of concerns for Americans, like updated infrastructure, affordable education, affordable health care, public safety, no more wars, affordable heath care system, decent affordable housing , bring back our industry, bring back the more than $ 3 trillions on corporate money sitting in tax haven, are non-issue to most if not all candidates. The issues forming the next national government are immigration and same sex marriage and of course leading all other issues is Israel.

In the last national election, more than $4.3 billions in “bribes” were raised and donated to state and national candidates. When a senator needs to raise $25 millions for election you know damn well that he is paying back his sponsors. I called that “bribes”.

We, here in America need to rise up just like the Greeks did and vote “No” to all the Oligarchs and to all the bribes in politics. Please keep this in mind next election.
